“It was with great fanfare that arrests of the plotters to kidnap and possibly kill Michigan Governor Gretchen Witmer were announced back in the fall of 2000 – and it was with much less fanfare that the acquittal of two of the alleged plotters was announced this week. Particularly humiliating for the authorities – revelations that the “plot,” to the extent that one existed, was mostly devised by the FBI and its inside informants rather than the men arrested and charged with the crime.

Jimmy and The Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal discuss the FBI’s now-common practice of entrapping suspects into plotting crimes that the FBI can then “foil.”

“YouTube has issued new guidelines to video partners producers that content on the platform will not be monetized that “exploits, dismisses, or condones” the war in Ukraine. Also demonetized: any videos “that imply victims are responsible for their own tragedy or similar instances of victim blaming, such as claims that Ukraine is committing genocide or deliberately attacking its own citizens.”

Jimmy and The Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal discuss how social media platforms are using monetization to choose sides and silence opponents of the US/NATO narrative on the Ukraine war.”

“Ryan Grim and Emily Jashinsky react to reports that Twitter is considering letting Elon Musk purchase the social media platform.

FILE – Elon Musk speaks at the SATELLITE Conference and Exhibition March 9, 2020, in Washington. Musk’s lawyer says a federal judge would trample on the Tesla CEO’s free speech rights if he ordered Musk to stop talking about 2018 tweets saying he had the funding to make Tesla a private company. In a court document filed Wednesday, April 20, 2022, Lawyer Alex Spiro says a motion from a group of Tesla shareholders seeking a gag order doesn’t establish that Musk’s comments will prejudice the pool of jurors who may hear the case.

Musk is offering to buy Twitter, Thursday, April 14, 2022. He says the social media platform he has criticized for not living up to free speech principles needs to be transformed as a private company. (AP Photo/John Raoux, File)”

…Abrupt aboutface…Interesting…

On a serious note…I hope Elon does not lose his shirt on this deal, and that he has a genuine strategy and infrastructure to actually run the site.

He’ll be taking control of a massive dumpster fire, and trying to turn it into something productive…and who knows what will happen, if there is a serious exodus of users…I wouldn’t want to see twitter become the opposite extreme, where it comes to its user base.

…How about just a healthy mix of people accross the spectrum, who are not being gagged?

…Wouldn’t that be nice for a change?

“If there’s one thing German commentator Florence Gaub wants people to know about Russians, it’s that they’re not “like us.” They’re not REALLY Europeans, she says, nor do they value life the same way that the Western European nations that launched not one but TWO world wars do.

Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss this latest example of the demonization of the Russian people as part of the larger effort to manufacture consent for war.”
