Thought for the day

Some members of the European Union are calling for the body to support renewed construction of border barriers as Europe has seen a rise in illegal border crossings in recent months.

On Jan. 21, 26 European Union members and envoys for Switzerland and the United Kingdom visited Greece, where Greek Citizens’ Protection Minister Takis Theodorikakos showed them a still expanding border wall and called for EU support in growing and maintaining that border security measure.

“The task [of protecting the border] needs the support … of European public opinion, the European Union itself and its constituent members individually,” Theodorikakos said.

“It is our steadfast position that member states of first reception cannot be [the migrants’] only European destinations.”

Out of the caterwaul of cries proclaiming that Russian collusion, and Russian influence operations, were the only reason Donald Trump won the 2016 US election (a hoax funded and promoted by his opponent, Hillary Clinton), a website which claimed to track said Kremlin efforts sprung forth, and was used to justify baseless allegations;

Hamilton 68: a widely-cited, (indirectly) state-sponsored propaganda tool.

The website claims to monitor a secret list of Twitter accounts which they accused of Kremlin control, however it's impossible to verify their claims as the group has never disclosed their methodology.

Former FBI counterintelligence agent and “disinformation” expert Clint Watts, the spokesman for Hamilton

As Matt Taibbi notes via Racket:

Hamilton 68 was and is a computerized “dashboard” designed to be used by reporters and academics to measure “Russian disinformation”. It was the brainchild of former FBI agent (and current MSNBC “disinformation expert”) Clint Watts, and backed by the German Marshall Fund and the Alliance for Securing Democracy, a bipartisan think-tank. The latter’s advisory panel includes former acting CIA chief Michael Morell, former Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, former Hillary for America chair John Podesta, and onetime Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol. -Racket

And now, Taibbi has torn Hamilton 68's 'black box' asunder after reviewing the latest batch of "Twitter Files."

Rhode Island high school's assistant principal allegedly sent out an email asking staff to send donations to pay a human smuggling cartel for trafficking a student over the Mexican border.

'Coyote' fees are paid to people who help sneak immigrants into the United States to match the risk of illegally entering the country.

Stefani Harvey, the assistant principal at Mount Pleasant High School in Providence, sent an email obtained by reporters Thursday asking for donations for the student's 'coyotes,' who she claimed are 'a group that helps people.'

After several days of silence and while much of the nation was on riot watch Friday night, pharmaceutical giant Pfizer quietly issued a statement responding to the Project Veritas video of Pfizer research director Jordon Trishton Walker talking about Pfizer exploring “directed evolution” research on the COVID-19 virus.

Pfizer denies performing gain of function or directed evolution research on the virus. However, it did say that on occasion it engineers a virus mutation, “In a limited number of cases when a full virus does not contain any known gain of function mutations, such virus may be engineered to enable the assessment of antiviral activity in cells.”

Did you notice the way that the far left snapped back into protest mode tonight, as if they were just waiting for this moment?

Tucker Carlson did.

During his opening monologue tonight, Carlson acknowledged that the Tyre Nichols video was awful, but he also pointed out that the far left’s reaction, and Antifa specifically, is in many ways just a propaganda campaign that magically gets trotted out whenever they’re needed.

Carlson suggests there is nothing organic about it.

Here’s a partial transcript, via FOX News:

That propaganda campaign, like all propaganda campaigns, is by definition dishonest, but it’s more than that. It’s worse than that. This is yet another attempt by our leaders of our country to inflame racial hatred in the United States. Why would anyone ever do that? The consequences of doing that ripple through the generations.

White people are to blame for five black cops beating 29-year-old black man Tyre Nichols after he evaded and resisted arrest earlier this month in Memphis, Tennessee, according to the controlled media.


From CNN:

Opinion: The police who killed Tyre Nichols were Black. But they might still have been driven by racism

by Van Jones

Updated 7:13 PM EST, Fri January 27, 2023

Three decades ago, when four White Los Angeles police officers were videotaped beating Rodney King, the public outcry was heard around the world. [...]

From the King beating to the murder nearly three years ago of George Floyd, American society has often focused on the race of the officers — so often White — as a factor in their deplorable acts of violence.

[...] One of the sad facts about anti-Black racism is that Black people ourselves are not immune to its pernicious effects. Society's message that Black people are inferior, unworthy and dangerous is pervasive. Over many decades, numerous experiments have shown that these ideas can infiltrate Black minds as well as White. Self-hatred is a real thing.

That's why a Black store owner might regard customers of his same race with suspicion, while treating his White patrons with deference. Black people can harbor anti-Black sentiments and can act on those feelings in harmful ways.

[...] Regarding the officers' race, [Nichols' mother RowVaughn Wells] also noted to CNN that violence like what happened to her son is about how some bad cops use their power over Black and brown victims.

From The Independent:

Pointing out that the officers involved in Tyre Nichols’ death were Black is a dangerous distraction

The fight against police brutality has never just been about white cops or racist cops

by Nylah Burton

[...] The police officers who killed Nichols are Black, which has prompted many people - particularly online - to attempt to counter the idea that his death is linked to systemic racism and police brutality in the law enforcement system. Not only is this a simplistic and illogical argument, but it’s one meant to distract us from our fight. The fight against police brutality has never just been about white cops or racist cops. It’s about how the entire system encourages all those who join it - no matter what their own racial background - to dehumanize and target people of color.
