I didn’t think this would amount to much with its low-budget poster, but it turned into an amazing surprise. This is a mind-blowing bit of American history and a must-see.

I did not watch the original event, being 7 and concerned with other matters.

The climax built up after a series of expanding stakes, which propelled a simple tennis challenge across the world stage.

It turned out that this was not simply a comical publicity stunt by an eccentric old provocateur. Bobby Riggs was also a tennis champion, and the challenge was deadly serious. If the top woman tennis player couldn’t defeat an over-the-hill obnoxious geezer, then it made the case in people’s minds that women were the inferior gender. This was the greater meaning of the match, and the entire country tuned in for this epic battle.

What’s more, Riggs defeated the top-ranked women’s contender, who had just toppled…

FLORIDA PROJECT

If you see Willem Dafoe, you get the movie. Dafoe’s worst films are better than 95% of what Hollywood craps out.

Bonus, this film is an experience mostly told from the kids’ POV. It’s a trip, and while not solely confined to the feral gang of Florida motel brats, enough of the story is set in their world that this is a must-see.

Great cast.

My thoughts began to wander somewhere near the middle, but the movie caught a plot eventually. The ending saves it. The little girl in the lead, Moonee, is so charismatic and carefree that you have to follow along.

This is life on the bottom in the shadow of Disneyworld. With a constant influx of tourists and low-lifes, the motel carries a sense of imminent danger to the small children stranded there.

“Truthdig” (sic) contributor (and now Counterpunch), with longstanding ties to foundation-funded professional propaganda complex, demonizes dissenters, claims everything critical of White Helmets and Al Qaeda false flags is “fake.”

The Left, Syria and Fake News

Kolhatkar claims she doesn’t want US bombing of Syria, but she ignores seven years of covert arms smuggling to radical Islamists: the reason there is a war there at all. The professional “left” pretends the US hasn’t created the war with its willing partners. This is the type of propaganda Chomsky, et al. have banged out for years. They ignore the weapons, ignore the state-sponsored (CIA) smuggling, and they attack domestic dissenters instead.

For Sonali Kolhatkar’s education, here is everything posted here on the “White Helmets,” a fraudulent organization created to manufacture propaganda for people like Sonali to cry crocodile tears over and sell to western audiences.

The big photo cache of White Helmet members in their former roles as Al Qaeda fighters is the central post not to be missed:

Massive White Helmets Photo Cache

But dissenters are the fakes, Sonali? Not the Al Qaeda/White Helmets creating fake rescues? Not the Al Qaeda connected terrorists caught repeatedly with chemical weapons?

Maybe Sonali Kolhatkar is the real fake in this story…

PS.

In one of Kolhatkar’s own sources, cited in her Counterpunch piece:

Associated Press: Chemical weapons team in Syria kept from alleged attack site

Nuseir, 25, said he ran from the shelter to a nearby clinic and fainted. After he was revived, he returned to the shelter and found his wife and daughters dead, with foam coming from their mouths.

He and two other residents accused the rebel Army of Islam of carrying out the attack. As they spoke, government troops were not far away but out of earshot. Nuseir said a gas cylinder was found leaking the poison gas, adding that he didn’t think it was dropped from the air because it still looked intact.

Oooooops. How does the Army of Islam releasing chlorine in any way implicate Assad or the Russians???

Kolhatkar ignores half a decade’s revelations about the Islamists using chemical weapons, including UN inspector Carla del Ponte:

 

And yet Kolhatkar would arrogantly try to discredit us for knowing far more than she does about the situation. 

He who pays the piper calls the tune.

It’s come to my attention that Max Blumenthal, of Alternet fame, was pro regime-change in Syria before he was against it. Whether he had an honest change of heart is a big question, since he never really explained himself.

Here’s a bit of controversy.

I need to put this out for readers to decide since I promoted his pieces, despite him being connected to foundation-funded propaganda complex Alternet. They are the home of head-bobbing Chomsky drones and worse.

So, how about setting the record straight, Max?

At the time of that controversy, June 2012, this is how I personally handled the crisis in Syria (still far too relevant today):

1. America has never, ever, ever given the slightest fuck about foreign casualties of wars, be they incinerated, decapitated, or gassed. It is ludicrous in the extreme to believe any of the current war propaganda about Syria.

2. America has, conversely, made threats related to the use of chemical weapons, because that is a cassus belli, a pretext for launching a war that has already been desired and decided upon.

3. The Syrian “chemical weapons” debacle is exactly like the Iraq “Weapons of mass destruction” debacle, almost to the letter. It doesn’t matter if it’s true, it only matters if they can sell it to the public to gain support.

4. The REAL reasons America wants to destroy Syria are as follows:

a) Syria is an ally of both Russia and Iran. These are obstacles to America controlling the middle east oil reserves.

b) Russia maintains a naval base on the Mediterranean on Syrian territory, meaning it has naval capabilities that can act as a check against Washington and NATO’s belligerence against poorly defended middle eastern and African nations.

c) Iran is the next country on the US hit list, as revealed by General Wesley Clark more than a decade ago. Syria was also on the Pentagon’s “list” of 7 nations to overthorw in 5 years. The timetable has been delayed, but the goals remain the same, because:

d) Syria is independent and not a puppet of Washington. This is not to be tolerated. Any small nations which exercise independence are targeted with “regime change,” and regime change is a war crime, a Nuremberg violation. It is what Hitler did to Poland and Nazis were hung for. Yet, today, the US and its partners do it on a regular basis, because:

5) The US population is brainwashed to hate the official enemies and to believe absolute bullshit war propaganda, like that manufactured by the Syrian “White Helmets.” This group was created by a British mercenary with US covert funding. It is staffed by Al Qaeda members who fabricate atrocities with video cameras they have been given. The act of aiding Al Qaeda should be considered “Treason,” but today it is how mainstream US corporate news gets its footage about the Syrian war.

6) Russia has warned Washingon that bombing Syria would lead to World War 3 and potentially the end of life on earth.

How stupid is America? We are all about to find out.

I was going to ignore the “flat earthers” until they went away, but now I see this..

stupid-flat-earthers

No wonder you can’t debate serious complex issues with these meatballs. You can’t even teach them 2nd grade earth science!

 

Most flat earthers consider themselves very religious

Of course, they do. Monkeys. Fucking stupid monkeys who shouldn’t be allowed to vote.
