Paratroopers with 82nd Airborne fly non-stop to jump into Estonia tonight
"A large contingent of U.S. paratroopers is expected to jump into Estonia tonight after a long flight from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, that includes mid-air refueling.

The jump is one of three brigade-size jumps over the next several days in which a total of 7,000 paratroopers from the United States and 10 other nations will conduct a joint forcible entry exercise at each of the landing sites in Estonia, Bulgaria and Romania."

Melinda Gates Warned Bill About Jeffrey Epstein

Melinda Gates warned Bill Gates about Jeffrey #Epstein after a secret meeting in 2013 — Bill Gates continued to associate with Epstein long after Epstein’s conviction and the media blitz of his predatory pedophilia

Epstein flew people like Gates and Clinton around the world for their foundations because it made him look important and he could write it off as a donation. It doesn’t mean they “partied” with him. Of course it doesn’t mean they didn’t either, but let’s not assume anything

Gdammit.

Regardless of Gates' association this is sad. Epstein crossed paths with many wealthy, & many who managed influential Foundations, so I'm personally just leaving it there.

Fk you Jeffrey Epstein

ST. LOUIS — Lobbyist and political consultant David Barklage has been indicted on a felony tax charge, documents unsealed Thursday show.

Barklage failed to report $443,633 in income from 2012-2014, the indictment says, meaning he failed to pay $151,843 in taxes for those years.

A total of $209,499 came from a Missouri political campaign, $30,000 was from lobbying fees and $122,580 came from "an independent media producer," the indictment says.

During that period, Barklage was half owner of Barklage and Knodell and the sole owner of The Barklage Company, the indictment says.

This reads like one would expect from the snake pit of the Missouri Republican Party.
Cripe..

The Taxman comes for Crypto: Federal court has authorized the IRS to serve on Kraken exchange

(I have little interest nor knowing about Crypto but it seems the IRS is diving in. What/who is Kraken to Crypto buyers. A trader?)

Just leaving this here for those who do crypto.

Russia is working to minimize damage in the event it loses access to international financial instruments, but, for now, the Kremlin considers the possibility of being disconnected from the SWIFT interbank payment system as hypothetical, stated the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova in an interview with RT.

"The possibility of being disconnected from SWIFT is still considered as hypothetical. Nevertheless, inter-minsistry work is underway to minimize the risks and economic damage if our country’s access to the usual international financial instruments and payment mechanisms is limited.

The Financial Messaging System of the Bank of Russia is an example of such alternative instruments. At the moment, options for its pairing with foreign counterparts - European SEPA, Iranian SEPAM, Chinese CUP and CIPS, are being discussed," she said.

"Crowds and Power" Rewarding Compliance, Criminalizing Dissent / Ruth Ben-Ghiat Apr 27

Crowds and Power
Rewarding Compliance, Criminalizing Dissent
Ruth Ben-Ghiat
Apr 27

https://lucid.substack.com/p/crowds-and-power

Crowds have a starring role in the propaganda generated over a century of authoritarian history. Throngs listening to the leader at a rally, performing gymnastics for him and party officials (a Communist specialty), or lining the streets to cheer his motorcade - these are all "good crowds." In authoritarian states and declining democracies, good crowds exist in relation to dangerous ones, like the hordes of foreigners reportedly breaching U.S. borders, or protesters said to be committing violent acts. Democratic erosion and the criminalization of dissent go hand in hand.

Old-school regimes and their state medias manufactured a ceaseless flow of good crowd images.
The compliant civilian and military bodies on display legitimized the leader politically, their cheers and salutes maintaining the illusion that he ruled by popular will.
They nourished his personality cult, renewing his power and feeding his ego.


"Early on, Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels discovered that Adolf Hitler was a wooden speaker in a studio environment and required the energy and adulation of crowds to shine.
Hitler's speeches thereafter were recorded at rallies and other public occasions, his performances enhanced by the feedback of his fans.
