There Goes The Narrative

The white supremacists are on the march.

Lucy yanks again.

U.S. Park Police identified the driver as Sai Varshith Kandula, 19, of Chesterfield, Missouri, noting that he was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, threatening to kill / kidnap / inflict harm on a president, vice president, or family member, destruction of federal property, and trespassing.

And it’s all too much for Reuters.

Go woke…

Mainstream pundits typically dismiss the idea of “go woke, go broke” as a fictional concept that could never happen in real life. But for a bar in Indiana that decided it could dispense with insufficiently woke customers, it’s reality.

The latest statement is one of three that The Fairfax Bar & Grill in Bloomington, Indiana has posted in the past couple weeks, indicating that they are desperate to find the right messaging on the subject since they’ve been bleeding clientele.

Though it initially blasted social media users for flooding the initial statement with “blatantly transphobic, homophobic and racist comments” and claimed it was committed to not allowing “hate” at the establishment, the restaurant admitted, “With the departure of some of our regulars, we have needed new clientele, and you have answered. I’m not gonna lie, we still need more of you right now.”

“Trust us, we have sources.

April 7 (Reuters) – Russia or pro-Russian elements are likely behind the leak of several classified U.S. military documents posted on social media that offer a partial, month-old snapshot of the war in Ukraine, three U.S. officials told Reuters on Friday, while the Justice Department said separately it was probing the leak.

They never tire of being lied to.

The crackdown cometh: leaks for me, not for thee.

“These journalists knew what fate would await them if they helped debunk a sacred narrative…”

Canada’s Grave Errors

I would like to report that I was one of those few wise owls who knew, right from the start, that the story didn’t add up. But I wasn’t. Media figures, government officials, and First Nations leaders all seemed certain that these were indeed actual graves that had been discovered — and not just any graves, but graves of murdered children.

During the height of the ensuing social panic, in late May and early June 2021, mainstream media sources even repeated urban legends about babies thrown into furnaces and clandestine midnight burials. Surely, I thought, all of these public figures wouldn’t embrace such claims if real proof weren’t about to be sprung from the soil. After all, the GPR data indicated exactly where the remains of these supposedly murdered children were lying. All that was required was a forensic examination, something one might expect to occur within weeks, perhaps even days.

Now that Tucker has it;

The same corporate media that never showed any interest in seeing the full police video taken during the mostly-peaceful January 6 protest at the U.S. Capitol are now demanding all 41,000 hours of it.

That’s right; for over two years, the fake media knew there was a buttload of video that the rigged January 6 Committee was not showing them. Nevertheless, not once did this same media demand to see all the video.

Nope, instead of being interested in the full context and truth of what happened on January 6, the very same media outlets now demanding the full 41,000 hours spent two years dutifully broadcasted only the video Nancy Pelosi told them to broadcast.[…]

This is my favorite part:

“Without full public access to the complete historical record, there is concern that an ideologically-based narrative of an already polarizing event will take hold in the public consciousness[.]”

After TWO YEARS of bending over for Pelosi, look who’s suddenly interested in the “complete historical record.”

After TWO YEARS of bending over for Pelosi, look who’s suddenly concerned about an “ideologically-based narrative.”

Lies, Damned Lies And Statistics

Examining the exaggerated death rate of Canadian Indian Residential Schools.

The Honourable Marc Miller, Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations, never misses an opportunity to give his enthusiastic stamp of approval to any new claim made in the perennial quest for evidence of residential school wrongdoing. Two days after Williams Lake First Nation announced on January 25, 2022, the “discovery” near the St. Joseph residential school in B.C. of “93 potential unmarked graves”, Mr. Miller embarked on a tweetstorm that encapsulated his thinking, or, shall we say, his habitual presumptions, on residential school-related matters.

Among Miller’s tweets on January 27 was the following: “As early as 1909 (1909!!!), Dr. Peter Bryce estimated that the death rate from all causes for those attending residential schools was 18 times higher than that of non-Indigenous people in Canada of the same age [the curious exclamation marks are Miller’s, not mine].”

The “18 times higher” assertion is based on a report that Peter Bryce, Indian Affairs chief medical officer, prepared for the Department in 1909. In looking at mortality in three residential schools – Shingwauk in Ontario, Sarcee in Alberta, and Cranbrook in B.C. – Bryce found that during the period 1892 to 1908 the schools had a death rate of 8,000 per 100,000.[1] If Bryce’s finding for the three schools reflected the overall mortality rate across all of the 60 to 70 residential schools operating in Canada during that time period, the rate in the residential schools would indeed have been approximately 18 times higher than the 430 per 100,000 that Bryce reported for Canada’s general school-age population.

However, the evidence shows that Bryce’s “8,000 per 100,000” death rate was an overstatement for the three schools he studied, and a gross exaggeration of the overall rate for all of Canada’s residential schools operating in the 1892 to 1908 period.

And right on cue…

A troubled alliance

What exactly are western taxpayers getting for the trouble of emptying their treasuries and their own military stores to keep the Ukrainian government afloat? So far, a lot of looting by higher ups in the government. At this rate, how long will it be until western powers feel compelled to directly intervene to direct the course of governance there?

A top adviser, four deputy ministers and five regional governors left their posts on Tuesday. Their departures come as Ukraine launches a broad anti-corruption drive. Recently, authorities have seen bribery claims, reports of officials buying food at inflated prices and one figure accused of living a lavish lifestyle.

Deputy Defence Minister Vyacheslav Shapovalov also resigned, following reports he oversaw the purchase of military food supplies at inflated prices from a relatively unknown firm. The department called this a “technical mistake” and claimed no money had changed hands.
