Look Over There
Toilet roll game
On a positive note, the war has helped rectify the situation, maybe.
I almost tire of mentioning how the media — specifically, mainstream media that determine how 60 per cent of Canadians and 40 per cent of Americans think — get everything backwards. So that by the time one has unwrangled their reflexive views, one is stupefied by the doublings, quadruplings, and sextuplings of non sequiturs.
So, it’s interesting what they will make of yesterday’s vlogged 7-minute version of a report by Ukraine’s law-enforcement agencies that concludes obitur dictum that Kremlin stooges appointed to high positions in Ukraine’s security services basically ran Russia’s all-out-invasion pre-ops after Z became president in 2019.
Let that sink in.
The report is a rather if-I-may skookum rewrite of what we’ve intimated here since, er, 2019. The markup it now produces is tidier and easier to read, and the selection of high government officials that made it through the cleaning process is somewhat more sensible, at least from a piar-point of view.
What’s been deliberately left out of the prelimintary findings should be fact-checked (first) and made public, keeping in mind, of course, that surviving the war remains our immediate priority.
If I had more time, energy and interest, I would read their Substacks, but I don’t.
In possibly-related other news, the Poles on April 5, 2023 in Warsaw bestowed upon Z their highest order, Order Orła Białego, putting him the distinguished company of Benito Mussolini, Napoleon I and Nursultan Nazarbayev.
