Has anyone ever shot an agent who broke into their house to try to suicide them? Presumably there'd be deniability that it was just a random burglar, but there could be traces.

not an example of this, but every time I think of weird death it has to be William Colby leaving his dinner in the kitchen mid-prep, walking out with no shoes and going out in a canoe to die

There is no route out of the maze. The maze shifts as you move through it, because it is alive.

yeah Time's Up is basically a catch and kill styled clearing house for rape accusations, that also probably gives a major GOP donor blackmail material

loving rules

but Biden and the Media did turn #Metoo into #Whocares so maybe it's not quite as effective a blackmail racket as one might think

You don't need anyone to care about the blackmail except for the blackmail target, usually. Blackmail doesn't need to micromanage the actions of every agent, just the ones that might cost money at some future date.

hollander is a loving weird dude if you look into him even through just his wiki article. corporate PI in russia for kroll inc (founded by jules kroll, nick kroll's dad, lol) just after the USSR fell, nasty divorce with a woman he met there, etc.

he definitely had some ties to US intelligence lol

idk if I would really call this a coup; it's a really fascinating attempt by Kerr to use One Weird Trick to shut out the Liberal party but he failed spectacularly. It's possible he would have been successful if he had the messaging ready or planned things out more but he didn't.

As a sidenote, there's an Australian movie from 1976 called Don's Party, about the '69 election that was almost about the '75 election. In the movie, the Labor supporters are mostly obnoxious and out of their depth, and they all get manipulated in some way

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don%27s_Party posted:

There was some discussion that the events of the play be updated to the 1975 Federal election, but in the end it was decided to keep the screenplay faithful to the original play as it was widely believed in 1975 that Labor would lose–which was not the case in 1969.

William Blum covers it well in Killing Hope, I think, including CIA pressure on Kerr to intervene

imo, the Australian coup is a good example of the fallacy of thinking you can be on good terms with the US and, by extension, exempt from its imperialism. We’re all shaped by the same pressures, you just won’t know until you find your own way to its edges.

EVERY SPERM IS SACRED


Not bad but not great. Unfortunate amount of CHUD crap. I'd like to add the 2019 Kosher Deli Shooting in Jersey City to this list as well. Happened with details that barely or plainly didn't add up, got some mild media attention then swiftly disappeared despite the scary headlines about anti-semitic attacks and terrorism and scary scary Black Hebrew Israelites and whatnot.

I could've sworn there were some good posts about Hollyweird and CAA particularly in this thread but search is coming empty. Anyway I don't know why liberals 'turned on' McGowan but progressives 'turned on' her for her TERF transphobe stuff, not because they couldn't control her or whatever Greenwald is saying now.

Edit: Hahaha, this owns:

I looked it up and it actually is. The CAA headquarters is on Avenue of the Stars, the wide rectangular building near the middle. Deutsche bank is in that same building as is Ares Management Corp (small-cap investment firm, busy with acquisitions this year). The triangular building on the bottom left is BoA Financial center, Westfield group, and Merrill Lynch; the triangular building on the bottom right is JP Morgan and the Australian consulate.

For the curious that square building on the left side middle with the wavey symbol on it is the The Annenberg Space for Photography.

The last few chapters of Kealey's Spying on Canadians goes over the "gently caress you" aspect of this:

ya Kealey's work is good, if not dry. Showing that there already was federal infiltration in the Fenians and "Hindoo" immigration movement before Canada was even a country proper tells u pretty much all u need to know.

canada is a staggeringly evil logging/mining company and has been slowly gearing up for a new round of Indigenous repression as the marginal lands we once deemed lovely enough to let natives live on slowly became desirable natural spaces and sources of biodiversity.

we see this already in "indigenous" political bodies set up to promote capitalism. like here in ottawa we have this organization, the "algonquins of ontario", whose sole purpose is to help local developers acquire greenbelt land under the auspices of "reconciliation" or there are national organizations whose goals are to integrate first nation governance with canadian government.

maybe this would be better in the "perverse control of humanity" thread than the epstein thread but then again the nature of this thread is that it discusses power and power projects itself everywhere right? like some of the children peter nygard preyed on were Indigenous

From Daniel Ellsburg's The Doomsday Machine

quote:

He took me down into the underground bowels of SAC headquarters and introduced me to the chief of the Air Estimates Division in SAC Intelligence, Colonel George J. Keegan Jr. Liebman described him to me as a “real intellectual,” and I’d already heard of him in the Pentagon as the “father of the missile gap.” (He was one of several rivals for that honor. In the late 1970s he was a fervid proponent of a “death-beam gap”: a race for a “directed energy, charged particle beam” in which he claimed the Soviets were ahead.)

Granted, this is a death-beam and not a headache ray, but it's the same energy.
