2020.09.25 03:43 SanderSo47 'The Trial of the Chicago 7' Review Thread

Rotten Tomatoes: 92% (50 reviews) with 8.01 in average rating
Critics consensus: An actors' showcase enlivened by its topical fact-based story, The Trial of the Chicago 7 plays squarely -- and compellingly -- to Aaron Sorkin's strengths.
Metacritic: 75/100 (21 critics)
As with other movies, the scores are set to change as time passes. Meanwhile, I'll post some short reviews on the movie.
Sorkin has made a movie that's gripping, illuminating and trenchant, as erudite as his best work and always grounded first and foremost in story and character. It's as much about the constitutional American right to protest as it is about justice, which makes it incredibly relevant to where we are today, and to what's at stake in the coming election. The final note of defiance here offers a glimmer of hope for which many of us are starved right now. I'll take it.
-David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
Made by Paramount and tossed to Netflix in the pandemic uncertainty of 2020, “Chicago 7” isn’t exactly a groundbreaking vision, but it’s certainly a passion project of the “they don’t make ‘em like they used to” variety. It could have been made a few years after the Chicago 7 faced their fate and fit its moment, but registers as particularly robust now: Sorkin proves that courtrooms have always been at the mercy of a flawed process, yet subject to moral scrutiny at every turn. A look back at rabble-rousers from another era won’t change the world, but “Chicago 7” is a solid tribute to a few men who realized they could, even when the system they fought for came up short.
-Eric Kohn, IndieWire: B
The trial, as Sorkin presents it, is really about the soul of America — the ability to protest, to question the most fundamental actions of the government. The overlap between the 1968 Chicago protests and the Black Lives Matter protests that have taken place this year is all too obvious. Yet the true parallel, I think, is that “The Trial of the Chicago 7” is really about what it looks like when a society starts to treat people speaking freely as if they were doing something dangerous. The movie reminds you, quite stirringly, that the Chicago 7 weren’t attacking America. They were upholding it.
-Owen Gleiberman, Variety
And leave it to Sorkin — whose only other film as director, “Molly’s Game,” felt prescient in its portrayal of predatory men in Hollywood and beyond — to catch the mood of 2020 with a film he began working on many years beforehand. At a time of so much focus on police brutality, and a time when protest is being demonized as the election approaches, this story set 50 years ago feels oddly, frighteningly vital.
-Steve Pond, The Wrap
While many will draw parallels between scenes involving civil unrest to the events of 2020, the philosophical differences between Hayden and Abbie — cultural versus electoral revolution, respectively — ring closely to the debates raging within progressive politics today, and actually prove more interesting. But how much viewers engage with the “Trial of the Chicago 7” will have more to do with its naturally captivating story, and the comedic dialogue, than anything Sorkin as a director provides. But through a punch-the-air final act, one that’s the definition of defiance, Sorkin’s melodrama reassures us of the power of sticking to one’s beliefs.
-Robert Daniels, The Playlist: B-
Aaron Sorkin is at his most portentous with this inert film, stuffed with stars, which mislocates the point of the trial it dramatises
-Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian: 2/5
The script saves some of its most fiery material for them, the kind of thunderbolt Sorkin-isms that land with a satisfying crack. Though it allows them to inhabit quieter moments, too, and the movie is at its best when it roots itself in the real consequences of the case — not only for the men involved, but for a nation increasingly unable to bridge its most painful divides. In that, Chicago 7 frames the past not just as entertaining prologue but a living document; one we ignore at our own peril.
-Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly: B
The question of how we approach protest is an important one because it needs to be ingrained into our daily lives. I think even Sorkin would agree that our institutions have become infected with bad actors who seek to turn those institutions against the people they were meant to protect. “Protests are good” is a fine sentiment, but the culture is already there, and while Chicago 7 acknowledges that these protests will have internal conflict and face external violence, there needs to be more recognition that something has truly rotted America. Sorkin’s faith in institutions has clearly chipped away, but The Trial of the Chicago 7 shows he’s uncertain about what should go in its place.
-Matt Goldberg, Collider: B-
Certain events are rearranged from the factual timelines, and yes, “The Trial of the Chicago 7” exercises poetic license. This is not a documentary; it’s a dramatization of events that resonates with great power while containing essential truths, and it’s one of the best movies of the year.
-Richard Roeper, The Chicago Sun Times: 4/4
For a time, Steven Spielberg was attached to direct The Trial Of The Chicago 7, and his absence is felt in the televisual staging: For all the sentimental uplift of this film’s closing minutes, Sorkin lacks the master’s skill — flaunted in Lincoln and The Post — at enlivening gabby civics lessons. The film could have used some of Spielberg’s craft and twinkly open-hearted conviction... or, perhaps conversely, more of Hoffman’s radical, down-with-The-Man sensibility. Ultimately, Sorkin seems less interested in the actual politics of any of his seven than in the way their flipped bird to the establishment facilitates his own taste for zingers, clever comebacks, and grandstanding. Parallels to the present aside, Trial Of The Chicago 7 is ultimately more timeless than timely in its flaws and conventions. Which is to say that some things sadly never go out of fashion, like perversions of justice and eleventh hour surprise witnesses in legal dramas.
-A.A. Dowd, The A.V. Club: C+
Language is Sorkin’s power, and it’s easy to see what drew him to this project: language is what gives the characters here their power as well. And while there are moments that sound like Sorkin is preaching to the choir, there’s a great emphasis on the words the characters use, and how those words either get them in trouble, or ultimately give them strength. From a movie-making perspective, The Trial of the Chicago 7 is sturdy but not particularly revelatory. But as a delivery system for great performers rattling off great dialogue, it’s almost unbeatable.
-Chris Evangelista, /FILM: 7.5/10
While character development is a bit of an issue with so many personalities rioting, arguing and bantering, it doesn’t impede the thought-provoking nature of “Chicago 7” or parallels that Sorkin draws between the ‘60s and now – and without a bunch of narrative gymnastics. The filmmaker crafts an entertaining, immersive and ultimately optimistic spectacle that never forgets, especially at its ending, that humanity should always trump the system.
-Brian Truitt, USA Today: 3.5/4
Unfortunately, the film has relatively little of that kind of punchiness. As a director, Sorkin hasn’t yet grasped how to meld personal drama and historical sweep into a cohesive whole. Although the strong cast helps the film through some of its weaker segments, Sorkin’s attempt to bring a Spielbergian fluidity to the flashbacks to convention riot chaos often fall flat. But while The Trial of the Chicago 7 ends on something of a movie-of-the-week note, given the timing of its release as a current Department of Justice gins up spurious charges against political enemies, it nevertheless carries a certain past-is-prologue immediacy.
-Chris Barsanti, Slant: 2.5/4
“The Trial of the Chicago 7” offers an absorbing account, in some ways alarming and in some ways reassuring, of an earlier moment of polarization and violent conflict. It isn’t just like now, but the analogies are enough to get you thinking about what happens in a democracy when state power confronts popular dissent. A loud, chaotic mess. A tragedy and a farce. And that’s if we’re lucky.
-A.O. Scott, The New York Times
PLOT
Based on the story of the Chicago Seven, a group of seven defendants charged by the federal government with conspiracy in 1969 and 1970, inciting to riot, and other charges related to anti-Vietnam War and countercultural protests that took place in Chicago, Illinois, on the occasion of the 1968 Democratic National Convention.

2020.09.23 22:33 FPSGamer48 Moon Knight #31: Cat’s Cradle

The moment Greer and I step into her apartment, I feel the hairs on the back of my neck raise. It’s all too familiar: the leather couch, the coffee table, and even the photo of Greer with a small orange cat. More importantly though, this mere sight kicks Steven out of control, once more thrusting me back into the driver’s seat of Marc Spector.
“Cute cat,” I comment, pointing at the frame.
“Ca-Oh! The photo! Yeah, yeah, that was Mr Meowyagi. I had him back when I was with William in Chicago,” she replies.
“Oh...I’m sorry for your loss,” I note. Dammit Marc, after all that work Steven put into this date, now you’re just gonna find a way to fuck it up? Tonight had gone so well: almost two and half hours of just talking between Steven and her, with me only interrupting twice. We even managed to keep the other personalities silent during the whole event!
“No, no, Mr. Meowyagi didn’t die. He was my husband’s cat from his college years. He actually stayed at home to save money, so when he passed, I figured it’d be best for Mr. Meowyagi to return to his parents’s house,” she explains. I nod softly.
“So, Steven,” she says with a smirk, “would you like a coffee or something? Just so we can...you know…talk a bit more?”
“Um…sure...er...if that isn’t too much trouble, of course,” I say, fumbling through whatever niceties I can think of. My mind is kind of blank at this point: I think she wants us. The signs she’s giving off are like giant roadside billboards! And here I am, the one she hadn’t even grown to particularly fancy!
“No trouble at all,” she responds swiftly before heading to the kitchen. I wipe sweat from my forehead. Dammit, Grant, get your ass out here! I just have to force myself to switch, right? Maybe witness some new trauma? It seemed to work to get me here, after all. Looking around, I scan through the photos she has around the apartment. One of them, I notice, is of her with a black teenager, and at that moment, I feel the switch.
“So, Doctor Nelson, why don’t you remind me what we were talking about before your feline friend distracted me?” asks Steven with a hearty chuckle. Meanwhile, I continue to focus my attention on that photo: it’s that kid. Midnight Man’s son.
“I believe you were explaining how I was the only real superhero,” she laughs in reply.
“Hey, Steven, ask her about the kid,” I suggest.
“No, that’s gonna ruin the fucking moment. Now, you’re the one who put me here, right? So let me do what I do best,” retorts my smooth-talking alter ego before returning to focus on his earlier conversation with Greer, “Yes, that’s right. Now tell me, Dr. Nelson, who saves the most lives per day?”
“Police?”
“Haha, funny joke, but no. Think about it a little harder,” he suggests, placing his elbows firmly on the counter and looking deep into her eyes. For a moment, I can feel the tension fill the room before she turns back to her coffeemaker.
“Physicians?”
“There you go! Now, follow me,” he gestures as he talks the cup of coffee from her hand, “thank you. Now, those physicians, they can’t also focus on creating their medications and their treatments, right? They’re just the deliverers, after all.”
“Well, I wouldn’t say it’s that sim-.”
“No, no, let’s not take away your achievements for the sake of aggrandizing the front-liners. To provide their treatments, their cures, their surgeries, they need someone who can research, experiment, and test those things, right? That’d be you and your colleagues,” he says before taking a sip of the coffee, “mmm, this is quite good, bravo. Back to my point, though, as you can see, while the doctors get the credit, it’s the scientists who are doing the saving.”
“I mean...thank you,” she responds, “but I’d hate to take all the credit away from physicians. We just make their tools: they’re still the ones who know when to use it. I mean, when Iron Man is off flying around, who do you thank: Tony Stark or the suit he’s wearing?” Steven takes a confident step forward, narrowing the gap between them.
“I’d thank whoever made the suit,” he grins.
“That’s still Tony Stark…” she notes.
“Well, would he be a superhero without having made the suit?” counters Steven.
“I guess not…” she agrees, again putting her hair behind her ears.
“Then I am humbled to be in the presence of the world’s most important, and most beautiful, superhero,” concludes Steven with a bow. After a pause for his actions to sink in, he stands back up, leans against her counter, and takes another sip of the coffee.
“Well...thank you, Mr. Grant-”
“Please, I told you, call me Steven,” he interrupts. I can see her blush. I can’t help but be amazed by how smooth he is.
“Right, well, Steven, tonight was amazing, and I can’t thank you enough, you really didn’t have to go to all this trouble,” she says politely.
“You’re right, I didn’t have to. I wanted to. I think you’re really something, Ms. Nelson. From the moment I saw you, I knew there was something special about you.” As I watch from behind my eyes, I notice Greer’s almost shimmer for a moment. It’s also then that I feel as though all of her muscles loosen up. She smiles.
“You know, we don’t have to leave it off at this,” she suggests, placing her coffee mug on the kitchen counter. Oh shit, is this happening?!
“Well I wouldn’t want to be a bur-,” replies Steven, only to be interrupted as Greer practically pounces on us, pressing her lips against ours.
“You would be anything but a burden, Steven,” she says coyly. Before they continue, though, Steven does his best to seal the deal affirmatively.
“This uh...this isn’t cause of the wine, right? I wouldn’t want you doing anything you’d regr-,” he offers, only to once again be interrupted by a kiss.
“I appreciate the asking for permission, Steven, but honestly, do you think I accepted your suggestion to seal our business deal? I’m a big girl, Steven, and well….I enjoyed our time together tonight. I wouldn’t want to leave you off all pent up. Besides, can’t a girl enjoy a bit of fun?” she asks. And just like that, the two work their way into the bedroom. Though I’m not the figure in control, I can certainly feel everything that my better half feels.
“Oh Steven,” she cooes, her hot breath dusting my neck sensually. Her ample breasts, meanwhile, press gingerly against my pecs. We haven’t even truly begun yet, and already I can feel the stresses of my life fading away. It’s been too long since I’ve been able to feel such closeness, such relief. It’s as though my obligations seem to disappear into the back of my mind. Then, finally, as Steven enters her and we feel the grip as she wraps herself around us, for the first time in almost a decade, I feel a true happiness. For the first time in so long: I feel complete.
——
Once Steven lays our head on the pillow to catch his breath, I feel myself slowly being pushed back into control. Greer lays right next to us, her chest rising up and down beneath the blanket rapidly. Her red hair is matted against the pillow and her delicate hands are placed upwards, almost at the headboard.
“That….was….great,” she says happily between haggard breaths.
“Yeah….yeah it was,” I reply, my own body equally as tired as hers. Greer then turns over and places her arm on top of my chest. I bring her in to lay on my shoulder, and we embrace warmly as we recover together. Everything feels perfect. Absolutely everything.
“Marc,” comes that thick Philadelphian accented voice. Fuck.
“What is it, Khonsh?”
“Are you done now?” he asks, “Because, well, as much as I enjoyed the show, and believe me I did, we still got work to do tonight.”
“No! We don’t, Khonsh! We can take a single night off!” I growl back aggressively, “I work almost every night as your goddamn fist, so you better not be telling me, on the one night I get to myself, to go out and work.”
“Oh, well...alright then. Yeah, no, it’s fine. It’s not like I resurrected you from the dead or anything,” he says sarcastically.
“Look, Khonsh, I’ll do double tomorrow, okay? We can even do some daytime work, yeah? Just...please let me have this one,” I plead.
“Yeah, yeah. Fine. Yeah, no, it’s totally okay with me,” he remarks before disappearing back into my head. With a sigh, I return to reality and look over at Greer. As she lays there, nestled in my arms, I can’t help but smile.
“Someone please help!” I hear a woman call. My eyes dart around the room, expecting to find a tv or phone on. Nothing. My eyes wander towards the window, but I pull myself away. There are other heroes in New York. Daredevil, Spider-Man, the Avengers, Jessica, the Punisher, Arrow-Guy, Tigra, Jack: I don’t have to be the one who goes out there.
“Please! Oh god, please, someone!” comes a different voice, this one more frantic.
“Steven?” comes Greer’s voice from below, “your heart is beating awfully fast again, are you alright?” My eyes dart back to the window, and then down to Greer. Stop it, dammit!
“Yeah, yeah, I’m fine. Really. I’m just...still recovering,” I lie. Greer looks at me suspiciously, but eventually accepts my response and lies back down onto me.
“You don’t have to be the hero. You don’t have to be the hero,” I repeat to myself, forcing those words deep into my head.
“Please! Please, won’t someone help!?” screams a third voice. I jump out of the bed, leaving Greer shocked and confused laying there.
“Are you alright?!” she asks in shock. Every nerve in my body is tingling. My adrenaline is rushing violently through my body to the point where I have to put genuine effort into comprehending what she just said to me.
“What? Yeah, I uh….I just remembered, I have something I need to do tonight. I...I can’t stay. I’m really sorry,” I say apologetically.
“You sure? It can’t wait until the morning? Or maybe even just an hour?” she ponders, just before I hear another scream and jerk my head towards the window. When I turn back to Greer, she’s looking at me like I have two heads.
“Um….yeah...yeah I’m really sorry,” I explain, walking towards the bed. As I bring myself up to her, I offer her a final kiss of the night. When we release, she gives me a nod of understanding.
“Okay, I get it,” she says glumly, “Just so you know, I had a really good time.” I smile at her.
“I did too. We should do this again. I’ll call you, okay?” I suggest. She then hands me a business card from her nightstand as well as a pen.
“How about I call you,” she offers with a smile. I quickly write down my cell, kiss her once more, and leave the apartment. The moment I walk out, I can feel Khonshu’s presence once more breathing down my neck.
“You got what you wanted, are you happy now?” I ask him angrily.
“I have no idea what you’re talking about, Moon Knight,” notes Khonshu. With that, I hail a taxi and have it take me to the front of Grant Consolidated. I drop a wad of bills and run inside. Practically throwing the keys into their slot, I barrel through the front doors. Once in, I place myself in the elevator, insert my key, and press the top floor button. As the elevator begins to climb, I hear the garble of the elevator’s comm spring to life.
“Is that you, Marc?” questions Frenchie, “I thought you were on a date tonight.”
“I was, but I guess crime doesn’t take date nights off,” I grumble, “Is Jack in?”
“Mr. Russell is already out on patrol for the night. He said he was going to be working in your territory tonight.”
“Good. Good! I heard something over by the place I was in earlier, and I want to make sure those people are okay. Fire up the copter, would you? I’m a few floors away.”
“Gladly,” he concludes. A few moments later, the elevator doors swing open, and I grab my key from its slot. I then take a sharp right, where a large painting of Moses standing before the burning bush looks over me.
“And He Said, “Do not draw near here. Take your shoes off your feet, because the place upon which you stand is holy soil,” I recite before pressing the tips of my shoes against the point at which the wall meets the floor. I hear the click, and then step back as the portrait is pulled upwards, revealing my Moon Knight suit hidden behind it. When I’m suited up, I then walk out into the main room and onto the balcony, where an all-black helicopter is ready. I step inside, and soon we’re soaring over NYC.
“Looks like we’re all clear, Frenchie, extend ‘em,” I suggest over my headset. A second later, and I see a large beam of white metal extend from beneath the blades and fold out to form half of a crescent. Considering we haven’t crashed, I take it that the other half has as well. Perfect. Hopefully the paint job underneath helps complete the look. I then give Frenchie the street I want to be dropped off at, and soon enough he tells me we’re hovering over it. As I step towards the edge, though, I hear Frenchie start to speak again,
“Hey, before you head out: how was she?” he asks with a saucy tone. I smile beneath my mask.
“She was good. Really good. I think I’ll be seeing her again,” I affirm to him.
“Then make sure you stay safe out there tonight,” he chuckles. I give a thumbs-up towards the cockpit in reply and then jump. As the wind violently assaults my body, I wrap my cape closer to myself, creating a barrier. I then take just a second to look up, but all I can see is what looks like a crescent moon.
“Hey Frenchie, the chopper looks great!” I yell over the headset before turning back downwards. As I see the rooftops below rapidly approaching, I take a deep breath. Concentrate, I remind myself before pulling open the cape. With my powers to guide me, I glide down onto a lower roof, just barely stopping myself on its edge. Another happy landing.
“Alright, Moon Knight, you want to have some fun tonight?” I ask the spirit. I can feel his bloodlust.
“Of course,” he replies with a chuckle. Listening in, I try and hear the voices that first drew me out of Greer’s apartment.
“Was that a second Moon? I mean...honestly, at this point, I wouldn’t be surprised.” No, not you, though I will have to compliment Frenchie again on the work he put into making that chopper so good.
“And remember, everyone, Excelsi-.” No, not you either.
“Help! Someone help!” someone screams. I can’t make out if it’s the right voice or not, but they’re clearly in trouble.
“Lead the way, Moon Knight,” I offer, to which the avatar joins me in the driver seat of my body. Using his senses, I jump from our building towards a drainage pipe, which almost instantly begins to collapse from our weight. Using it like a pole vault, I propel us up to this next roof. I then run across this one before taking a second leap, this one going over the alley entirely. I tumble onto the third roof and look out onto the street.
“Alleyway. Left diagonal,” alerts Moon Knight. Though I can’t see the alley, I know he’s right. There’s a reason we’re linked, after all. On the left of our rooftop is another drainage pipe, which this time I ride down into the alley. I then sprint across the street, just narrowly missing two barreling cars coming from each side, and enter into the alleyway where I can see a rugged man wielding a gun pointed at a small, clearly frightened woman.
“Gimme the fuckin’ money!” he screams at her, only to be silenced as I jump at him, fists already clenched. The first one knocks his jaw back, while a second blow hits him in the nose. I then raise my knee, bringing it into his stomach. As he keels down, I grab his head from each side. I pull it down onto my knee, throwing him back with its sheer force. His neck now exposed, I leap forward and wrap my hands around it. One swift movement and his neck is snapped. His body falls instantly. Silence rings out through the alleyway. The woman looks at me in terror, her hands still clutching her purse.
“Go,” I suggest to her in my fake, gravelly voice. The woman nods and runs off into the night. Taking in a deep breath, I allow myself to acknowledge what I just did.
“Good work, Marc,” applauds Khonshu, “always a pleasure to see you work. Sorry about your friend and all, but you and I know, this is who you are.” I don’t reply and instead climb the fire escape to head onto the roof. From here, I can hopefully find mo-
My thoughts are immediately cut off as I see the orange figure on the roof’s far side. Her long red hair extends down to her waist, from which a long orange tail extends. Her whole body is covered in fur, or at least, what I can see of her. Her waist, chest, and shoulders are covered in golden armor, while her face is half-concealed by what looks like a gold bandana. A blue gem glows in the center of the chest piece. Her eyes, though, are almost paralyzingly beautiful. Their golden-green gleam seem to shimmer directly into my...wait...wait no. No that’s not possible. I’ve seen that look before, but it can’t be.
“Greer?”

Our final review arises from salon templates, who offer the very best templates for stylish salons. Now, in the beginning glance, you may be thinking the corporation only offers template websites, and doesn't offer personalized web services. Well, if you made this assumption, you're wrong! Salon Templates offers personalized websites with prices starting at $1,000. In the event that you run a salon and would like more information, simply use the proper execution on their website, salon templates
So Many Prices - How Do I Choose?
Many folks are overwhelmed with the purchase price spectrum from company to company. They'll be offered a personalized website for $299, and then another at $395, and finally the last offer of $1,000. So, how have you any idea who to decide on, and simply how much a personalized domain should certainly cost you?
As we all know, the typical business man holds on to his hard earned money very tightly. He's not prepared to release his cash very easily. When someone experimented with take this businessman's hard earned money, I'm sure a serious tussle would follow. So, to be able to distinguish between a great price, and a unworthy website design price, it is in addition crucial to figure out the typical cost of a web site design.There are many equations which will offer How to Create Website in 2020 you the typical cost of website design, but you'll not require any of those silly equations.
One way to find out the typical cost of a web site is to create your custom website design project on bidding sites, such as o Desk and e Lance.
o Desk Provides Custom Website Design
o Desk is one of many largest platforms for independent contractors looking for web and graphic work. If you'd like to learn the typical cost for a good design, simply develop a free account on o Desk, add a verified payment method (you won't be billed) in order that contractors will get you seriously and actually place bids for the project, and finally weigh out your results. It is in addition crucial to add a verified payment method because many o Desk workers have already been scammed in the past by false ads and projects that are abruptly canceled or discontinued. These days, it's problematic for an o Desk worker to trust employers on the o Desk site, which is why many will filter the employers who do not need a verified payment method on file. Adding a payment method takes 1 minute (simply key in the amounts of your card, expiration and CVV code), your billing address and you're all set. A small step such as verifying your payment method allows you to get 10 times more proposals for the project than if you're to create a project without verification.
After posting a project and verifying your payment method, simply wait several hours and log back to your o Desk account. You will find many offers coming from various elements of the world for the custom website design project. At that time, you'll intelligently manage to decide what the typical cost is for the custom website design project, in addition to other important details such as estimated completion date, cost, hosting and maintenance requirements and more.
eL ance, A World of Talent Ready To Work
Another good source for discovering the typical costs of custom web development is e Lance. Very similar to o Desk, e Lance allows you a better amount of customization and organization for the project. However, exactly like o Desk, it is in addition crucial to post a project in addition to add a verified payment method in order that contractors get you seriously. It'll cost you an additional $5 to verify your payment method, but don't worry. This $5 is automatically refunded back in the proper execution of a credit. So really, you're not paying anything at all for custom website design project bids from contractors all around the world.
I've Been Scammed In The Past By Custom Website Design Companies
If you've been scammed in the past by custom website design companies, I'm really sorry! Designers and design companies often run into scam artists as well, so unfortunately that is one facet of doing business that's inevitable, whether it's offline or online business. However, do not allow your past negative experiences affect your future decisions at deciding who to decide on and where you should choose your custom website design. Always remember that the price of your custom website design will fluctuate because the customization requirements of one's project increase and decrease.
Custom Website Cost Calculator
One of the best tools I've find undoubtedly for determining simply how much a custom website design will surely cost, is Design Quote's Web Design Calculator.
You can calculate the expense of simply how much your custom website will surely cost using factors such as:
Are you experiencing an existing website? Do you'll need a basic blog site? Do you'll need a simple template based type site? Do you'll need a completely custom site? (this is the choice you'd choose, if you'll need a custom professional site) They might also ask questions such as:
Will you need admin features, such as off the shelf site blog?
Do you'll need a custom site blog? Custom Content Manager? Photo Gallery? Member Administration? In addition they offer you custom calculations predicated on whether you're trying to hire a professional website design form, a tiny custom website design firm or freelancer, or a student or offshore worker. So, spend minutes using the custom website cost calculator for a better concept of simply how much a custom website may cost.
The Cost of Websites
Keep in mind that the expense of websites, unlike the US national debt, is NOT on the rise fortunately. The cost of website remains exactly the same, and actually is on a regular slope of decreasing. By the season 2020, every newborn baby will have a domain registered in his or her name, and all custom website design is going to be free. Hurray!

2020.09.18 13:40 TessaBissolli Deconstructing the mythology episodes. Part 1: Kate's memories until early 1990 (First part of Requiem)

In this series, we will examine the mythology episodes, in light of what we can believe or not, what we find confirmation of, and what is demolished by applying a bit of critical thinking.
When we get to these episodes, it is extremely important to keep in mind the concept of point of view (POV). What does a character know, and when did they learn it. The easiest way to confuse the audience is to play with the POV, so they assume that just because they or another character know something, all the other characters would too.
We have had three kinds of mythology episodes: memories, hallucinations and tales.
The memories are Kate's in Requiem; Ilya's in Orion RS, forced by Skovic; and two kinds of memories remembered by Liz: the ones in 2.10, aided/forced by Dr. Orchard, and her unaided memories in 1.09, 1.17 and 2.22 of the fire, as well as 3.02 (burying a can with Katarina) and the more dubious one of 3.03 (Katarina writing in her diary).
Just as I did on the previous series, in this series I will try to analyze the apparent narrative of the mythology episodes to see where it falls apart and where is holds true. While I am trying to stay within one episode, I am also aiming for a timeline understanding and how they all work with each other, so there will be some jumping back and forth, and references to the previous series and other episodes, especially when they reference mythology.

Let us take Requiem, accepted as being Kate's memories, and thus confirmed. All this means is that Requiem the way she remembers things. Most of it can be taken as being real and true: things happened as Kate remembered, but with any memory, it can be faulty, as Red observed, memories are not tapes, played back each time.
For example, we have in Requiem two calls made by Katarina to Kate in the motel.
We do not know if this is how Katarina looked when she made the calls to Kate.
We can trust Kate was told those things, as that is HER memory of the events. But we cannot trust the images we are shown of Katarina. Where she was, what she looked like, etc., because Kate does not KNOW these things.
This is what Kate knows. She got calls from Katarina.
It might well be where Katarina was, but until we are shown the same images by someone who saw the scene being with Katarina at the time, it remains Kate's imagining what Katarina looked like, and where she was.
I accept all of Requiem's scenes as the way Kate remembers things, with the exceptions of those phone calls from Katarina.
A couple of items remain questionable, but we have had confirmation of most items in there: her going as a nanny, Katarina arriving back after a trip, three months later, the scene where Katarina kills the Soviet agent, and Kate cleans it up, finding Katarina in the woods, the unused scene with young Kirk when he says goodbye to Masha, and then the abduction. What she remembers after the fire, and culminating in the moments before 1.01 starts, in September of 2013.
The two items that jar were that in Kate's memories, Katarina calls Constantin "Alexander" twice. It was my friend u/jen5225 who realized what this might mean.
Because we know he did not take the name Alexander Kirk until after the fall of the USSR:
Alexander Kirk is the alias of an oligarch who made a fortune after the fall of the Soviet Union buying mining operations for pennies on the dollar.
It makes sense that Constantin found himself in a difficult situation after Katarina was deemed a traitor. The husband of a traitor would have got some nasty encounters with people looking for her: the cabal, the KGB and for a while, "the Americans" or the CIA. A change of name was just necessary. I am surprised he did not change his face too. Or maybe he did.
We know he began to have problems with the Kremlin in 2002.
This might have been because they realized who he was, for when Tom obtains his dossier from Russian intelligence, they know Alexander Kirk is Constantin Rostov, as they have a DNA paternity test showing him to be the father of likely Masha:
TOM: This, um, SVR report, when I talked to you earlier, I hadn't finished reading it.... It's about you. And your father.
So, likely, his problems derive from being found out as Constantin Rostov. At any rate, by 2016, when he enters the scene, having seen Liz on the run with Red, the Russians know who he really is, because of that paternity test.
The writer said using the name Alexander was a "continuity error", but was it? Was recording the lines again with the correct name too difficult? I have my doubts about it. Possible it was, but I am not convinced. too blatant, especially when earlier in the season he had already been called Constantin by Red.
https://preview.redd.it/178rxw9rovn51.png?width=757&format=png&auto=webp&s=4dba719c031cc7f7783979cf293a1c30d4dc7987
Then Red says:
People think memory - works like a video recorder. The mind records events and then, on cue, plays back an exact replica. In truth, memories are reconstructed more like putting together an ever-changing jigsaw puzzle than replaying a video.
It is possible that Kate remembers Katarina saying Alexander, because that is how she had been hearing about him?:
You don't understand, Kate. I know where they are, and so does Alexander Kirk.
or maybe as u/jen5225 suggests, she had been in contact with him.
So, not everything will be as it seems, as Kate was told half the story, as we will see. but those are her recollection of the events.
Kathryn Nemec was hired as a nanny, with a curriculum vitae that was a fake, for we know from Aram's researching her, she did not go to Northwestern for medicine, or had a Masters in Child Development, at least not under that name. She did not work abroad for diplomatic families, which leave traces when vetted for security, particularly during the Cold War.
Kathryn Nemec. Your references are outstanding. Fluent in Italian, French, German, and Russian. Most of your charges appear to have been in various diplomatic corps. ...You attended medical school at Northwestern, yet you decided not to continue. ... thus, a Master's degree in Child Development.
https://preview.redd.it/tbivlo5lnvn51.png?width=1031&format=png&auto=webp&s=72199603dda49f8df14c25d59f873c78a861e3f4
The facts, as digged up by Aram, are that she worked for an exclusive domestic agency and lived at a few addresses in the Midwest in her 30s. There is even no trace of her working in Canada for the Rostovs.
she [Nemec] disappeared in 1991, just dropped off the grid. Lived at a few addresses in the Midwest in her 30s. Worked at an exclusive domestic staffing agency, but then one day she's just gone. - And there is no more record.
This means that whoever hired her, in books, she was working somewhere in the Midwest. Her sister is living in Chicago in 1991, and then in Wisconsin. Kate's phone exchange is in Chicago, and her fake license has her being born in Chicago.
3 months after hiring Kate, Katarina arrives back from a trip
We see Kate intervene in a fight Katarina is having with a Russian man, sliding a knife to Katarina, which allows Katarina to kill the man.
https://preview.redd.it/srmuozcz0wn51.png?width=1280&format=png&auto=webp&s=5328ae0a699b21ca27178c19449e09b266524b1d
Kate then suggest she would clean up the scene and Katarina would take a shower. In this scene, Katarina is not really seen as being that good at hand to hand combat, even if she is not shy violet.
Kate tells Katarina she knows she is KGB, which makes no sense, as the man killed was KGB. Agents generally kill agents from the other side, which leads me to believe that Kate already knew Katarina was supposed to be KGB and was letting her know it was fine with her. She demonstrates her knowledge of crime scene cleaning and cadaver disposal.
So, whoever sent her to Katarina, it seems Katarina knew or suspected who it was, and accepted a strange nanny with a love for cadavers and what she realized was a fake CV (when she asked how many children had she raised), because who was sending her or who she suspected was.
I cannot imagine a mother taking a nanny that loves cadavers and babies, and who had lied in her CV (make the tally yourself: a pre-medical degree (4/5 years), a few years of medical school (less than 4 ), a Masters degree (1.5 to 2), and then raising at least two sets of siblings for five or six years each set. 19 years for a bare minimum.)
https://preview.redd.it/3hv7xvvwsvn51.png?width=1916&format=png&auto=webp&s=bf136a8c3e961bf7bccfccf9509542bf2e70de94
Katarina asking Kate out of the blue, when she could not prepare, how many children had she raised, was a clue to me Katarina knew this whole CV was a bunch of lies, yet, she still hires and trusts Kate.
In Requiem we see a fake ID with a date of birth of 1953. This tallies, more or less with her being 6/9 in 1962 in the scene of her mother funeral, and puts her turning 30 in 1983/85. While she is supposedly hired by Katarina circa 1987, give or take a year, when Liz is about a year old.
Kate fake ID.
Kate believe it was Red who had hired her.
to keep Elizabeth safe, just like you asked me to all those years ago, when you first put her in my arms as a baby girl.
Red does not correct her that he only hired her in 1997, when Liz was being raised by Sam. So, either Red is letting her believe something which is not true, or Red is accepting that he somehow had a hand in her becoming Liz's nanny. But that knowledge came AFTER he had hired her, because she told Red in 1997:
KATE: Work for you? I don't know you.
We have a known case of Red hiring someone to look over Liz anonymously: an operative from the Major, Tom Keen.
https://preview.redd.it/15vrq0zm2wn51.png?width=917&format=png&auto=webp&s=17197832a5671566fc11cdd0f15d846fab55c71d
THE MAJOR TO TOM: The assignment's deep cover. No timeline, no price tag. This may seem like a cake walk, but it's the kind of assignment that makes me nervous. Our contractor has deep pockets. Demands the best, insists on anonymity.
the two hirings of Kathryn Nemec AKA Kate Kaplan
Kate believed that she had been working for Red for 30 years (1986/87), about the time she went to work for Katarina as a nanny with a fake curriculum vitae and a knowledge of cleaning a crime scene.
KATE TO AGENT GALE: Raymond thinks he out maneuvered me today, but he underestimated my commitment. I've been his cleaner, keeper, and confessor for 30 years.
Uncontested by Red, Kate said that Red had been involved in putting Liz in her care as a baby (Which might be literal or figurative, as in hiring her like he did Tom Keen, anonymously, to keep an eye on Liz).
But what she tells Red undisputed is that he hired twenty years prior. A scene we saw in Requiem, after Annie had been killed, and Kate is working for bail bondsman Little Nikos, circa 1996/97, when he sends Sam to talk to Kate, and then Kate and Red meet.
KATE: Work for you? I don't know you.
RED: I'm not as unknown as you might like to believe, Ms. Nemec.
Red sends Sam to fetch Kate, to offer her a job as his cleaner circa 1997
and then this:
When you hired me, you told me to choose Elizabeth over you. And so I tried to help her disappear to a safe place with her newborn daughter. And for that, you put me down like a mad dog. For the last two decades of my life, you had me convinced I was helping keep Elizabeth safe.
This is an interesting fact, and has become a clue for some fan theories in which Red is Katarina, after a surgery that left her an identical copy, down to voice and height to RR.
Yet, consider:
MEANS I can venture that Red hired Kate anonymously when Liz was a baby, to keep an eye on her, and eventually told Kate it had been him, and since she was cleaning bodies for Katarina, sent by Red, she was technically being a cleaner for him since then.
https://preview.redd.it/bsz95flxlvn51.png?width=1902&format=png&auto=webp&s=4b1773684b2f631cf6120c2ef34420779fc705a1
Kate then comes across Katarina and a man in a car, when Liz is about three years old, which places this scene in 1989. Because if Liz was born in 1985, but she was still four years old at the time of the fire, in December of 1990, then Liz was born in late December 1985.
https://preview.redd.it/6ku1xmkb0wn51.png?width=1613&format=png&auto=webp&s=addc831fede881421f238d40a4614dc6e845dbbd
Kate advices Katarina to break up with this man, a man she calls The American. And considering that she tells Liz that Katarina did not walk away from Raymond until it was too late and Raymond had taken Liz, believing her to be his, this man in the car must be Raymond Reddington. The man she will later blame for setting a set of events in motion which took what she loved from her, in that Katarina killed herself, at least in her view.
https://preview.redd.it/50nn1ox81wn51.png?width=1248&format=png&auto=webp&s=6db29a72349f80fc5517a6a5fe6f2227264cd412
From here, we jump to Liz's earliest memories of her mother, which come in 4.02 and 4.03, as she has been to the Summer palace and after she stole Katarina's diary from an FBI office.

The last game of President Trump: Breaking the coup attempt of the Democratic Party and the enemy of the country
The closer you get to the election day (November 3), you can feel the heat from all sides surrounded the ballot box, from the Democratic Party's push to vote by mail to the application of the military to the election. or not? It can be said that President Trump is facing a lot of pitfalls of the righteous "enemy" in the heart of the country.
But as a "warrior" of difficult space, it can be said that the current decisions and statements of President Trump have pushed "the opponent" into the situation ... do not know where to go. 2020: The Democratic Party's "n" coup attempt
In February 2020, after many failed "coups" since Trump entered the White House (January 2017), Democrats and other underground State forces plotted to "oust" President Trump. out of the White House with a "farce" or "farce", and it ultimately failed miserably.
When the "tricks" are applied based on both "subjective and objective" factors such as the Wuhan virus, shutting down the economy, destroying riot, abolishing the police ... counterproductive, more precise. is a huge failure again, now the Democratic "rulers" are openly talking about staging a "coup".
Starting with statements from the US Department of Defense to quietly guide public opinion that the military will not obey the orders of the President. All of the above statements are from former generals - most of them are those who served under former President Barack Obama, and helped "spread" by Big Media to the American public. In July 2018, CNN once "revealed" that a series of generals in the Trump administration were disobeying his requests. And CNN, New York Times ... try to "illustrate" so that the American people believe that the President of the United States cannot afford to become the most powerful man in the world. (first)
CNN opened up, Defense Secretary James Mattis - then among those "disobedient" top officials - is said to have made disparaging comments on President Trump on matters related to Syria and North Korea, with the comments "Mr. Trump understands these issues at the level of an elementary school student".
US Joint Chiefs of Staff Vice Chairman John Hyten, who is responsible for America's top nuclear command, said he opposes President Trump's order on a nuclear strike if that is " illegal". As for CNBC, incumbent Defense Secretary Mark Esper opposes the introduction of the Resurrection Act - allowing President Trump to deploy US troops in active service - in response to civil unrest caused by Antifa, Black Lives Matter caused in major cities across the US in May 2020. (2) As the riots intensified by domestic terrorist groups, with the "help" of the Democratic governors run earlier in June, Defense Secretary Mark Esper declared publicly announced in the media that the President should not invoke the Resurrection Act.
The left-wing media massively released this information, simultaneously interpreting and dissecting the Secretary of Defense's message: “Mr. President, don't tell us to do it, because we won't, And he knows what will happen after that.
All these "tricks" of the left-wing media have "breathed relay" for candidate Joe Biden to confidently assert to Fox News that the military will "escort [Trump] from the White House with an official dispatch." great ”if the president refuses to leave office. And yet, former Vice President Al Gore (under the Bill Clinton administration) also publicly agreed with this view of Joe Biden. (3)
You may think that this is just a "joking" comment of a "patient" with dementia, and of a "hideout" who always offers "renaissance" campaign policies to America. from inside the basement of the house he is in.
But Democrats are not accidentally "innocent" as you think. They have a methodical strategy to "brainwash" the American people step by step before "coup", even for Mr. Joe Biden "doze" to say innocuous statements as above. Democrats are not accidentally "innocent" as you think. They have a methodical strategy to "brainwash" the American people step by step before "coup". (Getty)
It is no coincidence that the Washington Post recently (September 3) published an article titled: "What's the worst that could happen ..." The article publicly outlined a scenario, in which "Trump won," the Democrats desperate and vice versa. (4)
They purposely leaked a summer story about a meeting of about 100 Democrats who were former "anti-Trump" Republicans and other underground powers. (following the devilish trend of billionaire George Soros) together "play the lottery" - outlined different options and results in the 2020 election.
The end result is an absolute victory of the current President Trump. However, Bill Clinton's former White House Chief of Staff John Podesta (who plays Joe Biden) refused to give in, pressuring states that Trump had won the Democratic nomination for the main vote. formula of the Electoral College, and is confident that the military will take care of the rest. (5) This
deliberately "leaked" report shows that, if there is "dispute" from the post-election tally, then "technocratic solutions, courts and dependence on elites comply by standards is not the answer ”. Which it promises, what will happen after the November elections will be "a street fight, not a war of riot.
The underground powers and Democrats have outlined a bold plan to topple President Trump if he is re-elected. (Getty)
That means Big Media has "confirmed" to the American public that the possibility of post-election rioting (if President Trump is re-elected) will occur. Add two other baselines that can't be ignored.
The first data is that on August 11, Representatives Elissa Slotkin (Michigan) and Mikie Sherrill (New Jersey) wrote an open letter to General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In the letter, two Democrats urged General Mark Milley to deploy the 82nd Airborne Division to "escort" President Trump out of the Oval Office at 12:01 p.m. on January 20, 2021 for Joe Biden to "continue. The White House. (6)
The letter is the most obvious answer to the Democratic conspiracy right after candidate Joe Biden offered his "idea": If President Trump loses in the 2020 election (and if he refuses to give in ), then the Democrats may have to "ask" the military to escort him out of the White House.
The second data is that just about a month later, Hillary Clinton publicly declared that Joe Biden should not give in to the election "under any circumstances". (7) This does not sound like the "rhetoric" of a great politician, of a major political party.
All the above facts show that the Democrats are once again planning to "coup" President Donald Trump even if he wins over Joe Biden in the 2020 election.
Why Big Media and the Citizen Party Owner openly conspired "coup"?
The answer is simple, because the Deep State forces know that, for this coup "conspiracy" to succeed, it must not seem like a conspiracy. And at all times, wherever they are, they need to instill in the minds of the American people and the world public that, illegally removing President Trump from his term is partly due to the "fault" of yourself: Fascist dictator, entrenched power etc and so forth
They "brainwash" the American people not to mind Joe Biden's "extravagant" statement, that President Trump will refuse to leave the White House when he believed he had won legally. But what they want to emphasize through the "firm" statement of Hillary Clinton that: Joe Biden should not lose under any circumstances.
The focus of the Democratic Party's coup "conspiracy" is by all means to exaggerate the risk of pandemic Wuhan virus, with the help of CDC, Big Tech, Big Media, Big Pharma to stop the people. The United States voted directly, which in turn led to voting by mail. This is a form to create conditions for Democrats to cheat votes and "buy time" to count votes.
The Deep State powers know that in order for this coup "plot" to succeed, it must not act like a conspiracy.
In early September, the Hawkfish analysis firm (backed Joe Biden) announced that there was a chance that President Trump would win a landslide match on election night (November 3), but could lose. after the Democrats tally their mail ballots.
Hawkfish's director, Josh Mendelsohn, said a possible scenario when President Trump holds a 408-130 electoral ballot on election night, but has only 15% of the vote. by mail is checked. But after all the votes were counted, the company predicted Joe Biden "eventually won a big, 334-204 win."
Mr. Mendelsohn said: “When every legitimate vote is checked and we reach the last day, which is the day after Election Day, reality shows what happened on the exact election night. as such. Looks like Donald Trump took the lead, and he basically won't win when every vote counts. "
Meanwhile, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg also said that Americans have to get used to thinking that the election results may take "weeks" to be confirmed after the vote (November 3), and "status "Civil unrest is possible."
Twitter announced that they will delete any tweet declaring victory before the election results are confirmed. Meaning Twitter indirectly confirmed, the platform would prevent President Trump's supporters from challenging the legitimacy of any delay in announcing winners.
The worst case scenario will result in some states having ambiguous votes. Then a fierce dispute will happen to the point where no one can accurately declare the winner. Of course, then a whole system of Underground State behind "back", will help Democrats declare Joe Biden final victory.
America "runs out" if Joe Biden and Democrats win.
As President Trump once warned, if Joe Biden wins, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will take over America. At the same time, many observers also found that America, under the leadership of Joe Biden, would follow a socialist model.
This should come as no surprise, given that Joe Biden has a close "history", with the CCP leaders, openly downplaying the threat from China as well as his "demographic" campaigning policies. always attaching special importance to high taxes, supporting abortion, similar to the socialist democratic model.
The dangerous thing is, if Joe Biden and the Democrats somehow "take over" the White House in this 2020 election, they will change the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights, by canceling the Second Amendment. 2 (allowing Americans the right to own guns), opening up the border so that millions of illegal immigrants enter the United States, causing job "bleeding" and chaos.
At the same time, Democrats will keep all political dissidents - true Americans - silent. Under the mighty power of the Underground State, opposition Americans, patriotic Americans, and traditional rightists will be tightly censored.
Believers, Christians will be intimidated, beaten, and even executed by domestic terrorist groups such as Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and even executed, whose law (of the Democratic Party) will protect them in a favorable way. ethnic minorities. All Christian speeches will be "criminalized", and the Bible will be outlawed.
America is embraced by Marxist left-wing ideology. The riots over the past three months in the United States have demonstrated an ever darker outlook after the election, and show that the extreme left is a frantic, authoritarian, anti-American "sect."
The radical left "nurtured" and activated by the mainstream media, launched a violent communist revolution against America's values ​​of freedom and democracy.
Big Media, Big Tech has demonstrated dangerous lawlessness by censoring all speeches online, protesting the radical liberal's psychotic delusions. The ultimate purpose of this underworld is: Full power to rule, eliminate police and censor people with opposing views.
In the future, America is no longer a shore of Freedom, but becomes a country like the country the CCP is running: Disrespecting the law and upholding the "law of the forest". Every American election from now on will be easily manipulated, stolen, cheated, or altered with violence by leftists who hate America, and despise all Americans who love. True water.
President Trump - lonely warrior: "Quick quenching" violence
Of course, all the above actions are prevented by President Donald Trump.
The Politico newspaper reported that on September 10, President Trump threatened to "quell ... very quickly" the riots on election night (November 3), if the Democrats were dissatisfied. Street after his victory. (8)
The remarks were made in an interview with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, in which President Trump was asked how he would react to riots if he was declared the winner. on November 3. (9)
We will take them down very quickly if they do. We have the right to do that. We have the power to do it, if we want to… "(Getty)
"We will take them down very quickly if they do," replied the President. We have the right to do that. We have the power to do it, if we want to ... Look, it's called rebellion. We just send, and we do it, very easily. I mean, it's very easy. I don't want to do it because there is no reason, but if we have to do so, we will do it and solve the problem within minutes ”.
President Trump appears to be referring to the National Emergency Act - a law dating back to 1807 - that allows the President to deploy troops in the country for enforcement in certain emergencies. In other words, President Trump is declaring that he will deploy his army to end the rebellions.
There have been many analyzes and comments after this statement of President Trump. One of them is that President Trump will introduce the Resurrection Act shortly after the election. This allows the President to invoke the executive powers of the Fourteenth Amendment, in which paragraph 3 states:
“Anyone who is a member of Congress, or an official of the United States, or a member of a state legislature, or an administrative or judicial official of any state has made a declaration. o swear to support the Constitution of the United States but participate in revolts or rebellions against the Constitution or assist or lie in enemies, cannot be a senator or a deputy in Congress, or a representative voters to elect the President and Vice President, or in charge of any civil or military agency of the United States or of a certain state. But Congress can with 2/3 votes of two-thirds of the members of each House to reject the above prohibition. (From vi.wikisource) (10)
The Fourteenth Amendment was approved in 1868, shortly after the Civil War. President Trump could use this Amendment to order the arrest of a series of traitors, while stripping Electoral College votes from states participating in an overt revolt against the United Nations. USA.
That means President Trump has the power to remove the powers of governors, mayors, judges, lawmakers or military leaders who have granted "aid or commissar" to the anti-insurgent / rebellion. back to the United States.
That also means Democrats Gavin Newsom (California), Kate Brown (Oregon), Jay Inslee (Washington) and Andrew Cuomo (New York), and many left-wing mayors like Ted Wheeler (Portland), Lori Lightfoot (Chicago) and Bill de Blasio of (New York City) will be stripped of power.
President Trump will likely declare first that an illegal nationwide rebellion is in progress, and then deploy troops to quell the riots and restore the rule of law.
Extreme violence, and anarchy in Democratic-run states like this one, and likely to get even more intense shortly after the election, will give President Trump a rationale. it was justifiable for him to declare sending troops to these rebellious states.
u The 14th Judgment will allow President Trump to deprive mayors, governors, and MPs of the Democratic Party if riots do break out. (Getty)
This was not an act of "martial law" because President Trump remained at the helm of the country, and America was not run by a military general. Rather, the military is being deployed as a tool of the President to crack down on illegal rebellions.
Radical leftists are frantically burning, destroying, dismantling everything of America, from business to historic sites, harassing electoral sites, and deconstructing the foundation. the republic to replace the totalitarian socialist regime - will be abolished.
Of course, once the riots were abolished, this military deployment would cease, and the United States returned to a civil society. However, Underground State forces like Big Media and Big Tech will not sit and sit still once President Trump starts the Resurrection Act.
This "insane" faction will accuse President Trump of being a "military dictator" as they have long been attributed to him.At the same time, the Underground State forces will call on leftists to protest and rise. teach in the way that billionaire George Soros's Open Society Fund typically funds "color revolutions" that overthrow governments around the world.
His Open Society Foundation and other coalition organizations are the sponsors, supporters of the Democratic Party and radical liberal leftists, promoting racial wars, riots. , violence and revolution against America.
George Soros - the man behind many revolutions, riots overthrew the incumbent government worldwide, and profited to get rich through endless wars. (Getty)
George Eliason, investigative reporters of Americans now live in Ukraine, has connected the signs related to administration before Barack Obama with a wicked conspiracy to disturb and disrupt civil society America. This conspiracy is not only aimed at "overthrowing" President Trump from the White House, but also wants to open up a form of government in the line of atheistic communist socialism.
George Eliason released a report alleging that foreign terrorists were brought into the United States by conspiracy by former President Obama and CIA Director John Brennan. This shocking report indicates that the Obama administration "imported" foreign terrorists into the US in preparation for the Antifa / Black Lives Matter uprising, which caused chaos in US cities. (11)
So in recent months, domestic terrorists have been so strong that they shot and killed those who support President Trump, bombed gas bombs and destroyed federal government buildings. and attack the police. This is not difficult to predict that it will inevitably happen - to an even more intense extent - if President Trump is re-elected.
President Trump fully realized that a war against America had begun, and he decided to act decisively to protect America by "manipulating" the enemy when he declared that he would use legal military force and all executive powers of a commander in chief of the United States of America.
President Trump knew what was about to happen, and he molded the enemy by threatening to use the military to completely suppress uprising. (Getty)
President Trump's high-handed move
On August 23, just a day before the Republican National Congress began, President Trump held a major event welcoming the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for allowing emergency use. patient's plasma level COVID-19 was healthy during treatment. A few hours later, it was reported that the Trump administration was considering speeding up the vaccine test to get it and roll it out before the November election.
After voicing out that Democrats could fake votes if they passed the election. Letter, President Trump continued to shock with a statement related to vaccines: "The underground State elements at the FDA are trying to prevent companies from testing vaccines. They are looking to delay vaccines until after election day. 3-11 ", Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter August 22.
According to Bloomberg, the Trump administration is working to dramatically cut the time it takes to develop the coronavirus vaccine, with the goal of giving it enough doses for most Americans by the end of the year. Known as "Warp Speed", the campaign will bring together private pharmaceutical companies, government agencies and the military to try to cut the vaccine development time to eight months. (12)
In a matter of weeks In the past, the Trump administration has actively promoted the supply of vaccines on November 1 across the United States. (13) So why choose November 1 to provide vaccines? The answer is: November 1 is important because it is only two days away from the election (November 3). The Warp Speed ​​campaign on the surface involved vaccines, but in reality President Trump was not really "on the hook" with Big Pharma - home to the notorious vaccine manufacturing corporations. And President Trump has relied on this campaign to preserve national security by sending troops in every major city in the United States in an attempt to restore the rule of law, arrest leftist terrorists and traitors.
On March 27, 2020, President Trump issued an executive order that allowed the Pentagon to mobilize US veterans and members of the reserve force, and the National Guard returned to work. Permanent reinforcement for soldiers participating in the Army's COVID-19 pandemic campaign. (14)
The Individual Ready Reserve includes veterans, and members of the Mobilization Reserve, who are considered out of the military and rarely re-convened. These reserves will be deployed as part of the national defense against the Antifa terrorist groups, the Black Lives Matter. All of this could explain why President Trump pushed for the supply of vaccines on November 1, in which the military was sent to the country to "distribute" the vaccine.
This appears to be an extremely daring plan, "based on" the scheming brains of extremist left-wing Democracy - as a way of distributing troops across the country on election day, to prepare for application of the Resurrection Act immediately following elections.
Simply put, President Trump is a President of Law and Order.
Along with the continuous wave of American Police Associations voicing support for President Donald Trump, it can be said that the Democrats are on the same path. In other words, the Democrats were sticking him on his back, and to put it more literally, they were dancing the "music" exactly as the "talented composer": Donald Trump.

2020.09.16 03:00 BluRayja Revisiting: Which movies will go VOD

On June 25th, I posted a thread about which movies I think will go VOD. At the time, only two or three major films had come out to VOD: Trolls 2, Scoob, and King of Staten Island. As it turns out, the Select theaters/Drive Ins approach didn't do well at all. Distributors are completely reliant on that CA/NY money, so I do not see anymore cross platform releases happening, unless they are very small titles (that is, if theaters even decide to stay open with nothing coming out for months).
Let's take a look at how accurate or inaccutate those initial predictions were and what's still up in the air --
Original thread posted here:
https://www.reddit.com/movies/comments/hfyc74/with_theater_cancellations_imminent_what_othe
"Mulan - I think it'll unfortunately find it's way to VOD and then Disney+ by the holidays."
Welp, that's exactly what happened. Released in September and will be on D+ apart of the subscription in December. Ultimately, the movie didn't do as well as they had hoped and was met with a lot of criticism from fans PLUS major controversy world-wide. Ironically, it received praise from critics who saw it for free.
"Tenet - There's no way, Nolan won't allow it. Probably getting pushed to July 2021."
Welp, wisdom did not prevail and instead, was released in September 2020, resulting in very low box office numbers domestically. Thus, pretty much everything else got pushed back, including WB's own movies. While we knew VOD would not happen under any circumstances, you'd think they'd be smart enough to push it to Summer 2021 in the first place -- granted, there was optimism at the beginning of this pandemic, but it seemed Nolan was being pushy for a release this year for... I actually don't know what reason, honestly. The film is currently getting very mixed audience reactions and I don't see it thriving in this current marketplace. It would've done extremely well with theaters in full swing, pulling in $300-400 million domestically in its first 2-3 weekends before dying off based on the mixed word of mouth, but by that point, it wouldn't have mattered as the film would've made back it's budget worldwide. Now the film will struggle to break even. But maybe that was Nolan's plan so he can still get big budget paychecks so he can just always blame his confusing movie's failure on a pandemic.
"Bill & Ted - I think there's a strong chance."
Came out to theaters AND VOD.
"Antebellum - This seems like it could do very well on VOD."
Coming out this week on VOD!
"New Mutants - Apparently there's some theatrical clause forbidding it. It would seem like a wise decision at this point to figure out how to get out of it so it just can be released in some form, because it's already a joke at this point and will be hard to take seriously in August 2021."
The movie finally had it's theatrical release and actually did decent, all things considered. Unlike Tenet, I think it was the right move here to just go for it. If anything, I think current circumstances helped it. In a crowded marketplace, it would've floundered.
"Monster Hunter - Has VOD written all over it."
Haven't heard any updates on this yet other than a new release date for April 2021. It might do well with that date, so we'll see how things are going with the world at that point in time.
"A Quiet Place 2 - My instincts say Paramount is smart enough to know this film is vital in the theatrical experience. However, knowing the company has been suffering lately, it seems POSSIBLE they might just release it to make some guaranteed money."
Unfortunately, latest buzz around this is that Netflix has picked this up. An official international Twitter Netflix account accidentally spilled the beans and took down the post pretty quickly, but it seems like a done deal. I can see them releasing this around Halloween so Mandolorian S2 doesn't get all the buzz. Netflix seems like the desperate plan to get guaranteed money from the company paying for the rights outright instead of relying on VOD. However, I think this movie would do VERY strongly on VOD and they could potentially make even more money. But considering the spot Paramount is in right now financially, maybe they didn't want to take that chance. The last known plan was for a April 2021 release date. But with Fauci's recent claims that it'll be very unsafe to be in theaters even with a vaccine hitting the market by the end of the year, it won't be widely available until late 2021, Paramount might just be calling it a quits for now and getting what they can.
"The Conjuring 3 - I think it'll get pushed back. This franchise is a huge money earner for WB."
Pushed back to June 2021, which is smart. The films have always done well as tentpole summer horror films. The original September date seemed odd anyway.
"The King's Man - I see this being pushed back to January and being set up for possible disappointment of another delay again if theaters STILL aren't reopened. THEN, I think it'll for sure be put on VOD."
Close, it's currently slated for February 2021. With the current state of the world, I can see them releasing it internationally in theaters and domestically on VOD.
Candyman - This one could go either way. Like King's Man, I see them pushing it back one more time to either January or February. It might even do REALLY well in that timeframe if coming out in theaters.
Delayed to an unknown date in 2021. Sadly, Jan or Feb doesn't seem like a likely bet for theaters to do well, so I think they're just saying "indefinitely" for now. Personally, I'd be fine with this being VOD. I'd love to see it on the big screen, but I'm itching for this movie right noooow. This was way up high on my most anticipated for 2020, so the longer I wait, the sadder I get.
Wonder Woman 1984 - I think this will be pushed back to summer 2021. If WB wants to be ballsy and make some quick change, this is a for sure VOD hit though.
WB has it currently moved to Christmas 2020, which is optimistic. I can see pretty much everything on the current slate being moved again with this being the first movie to try opening again and WB wanting to take that risk, making theaters re-open possibly a whole other time and going through the risk and motions once more. Will WB & theater chains be let down once more? Who knows. I predict everyone will be traveling and seeing family anyway, with zero precautions of COVID at that point. I think by the holidays, people will likely try to move on and even theaters could possibly do well. This will likely be the spike event of our second wave. If WB doesn't want the bad press for being apart of that, they'd be smart to move. But as always, money is the root of all evil, and if they can get their quick buck at the cost of hundreds of lives, so be it. My current prediction is this stays and even does well. My hope is they just move to Summer 2021.
The Trial of the Chicago 7 - I see this getting picked up by Netflix or something.
Officially picked up by Netflix, will be out in October!
Halloween Kills - Now we're in the land of things POSSIBLY opening in theaters. If not, I could also see this going either way -- VOD in time for Halloween OR it gets pushed back an entire year, and Halloween Ends gets pushed back also.
Officially pushed back a whole year, sadly, along with Halloween Ends. Would have loved to see it this Halloween, but I understand. If we're still in pandemic at that time, I don't see them going back a whole year one more time and VOD it will be. I truly hope that is NOT the case though.
Snake Eyes - This will probably get pushed to Summer 2021 where it'll inevitably flop anyway.
Paramount thinks maybe they have a chance with this film, so they pushed it a whole year back. Oh Paramount... I'd love to be wrong, but I have zero faith in this franchise.
Black Widow - Just like back in May when people thought theaters would open in time for this, I think this will suffer the same fate. It'll get super close and Marvel will realize it'll make sense to pull it. However, I don't think they'll redo their whole schedule again. As of now, they set up some good spots for their movies accidentally... Thor for Valentine's Day, Black Panther becoming a major summer film, along with Captain Marvel. Black Widow just might be like Mulan and release on VOD with a Disney+ release in time for Christmas.
The current November slate is in talks to move. And, as tragic fate would have it, obviously Marvel will have to rethink their Black Panther 2. This will give them the possibility to restructure their release dates a bit, and Black Widow MAY be able to benefit of still having a theatrical exhibition. However, even with that in mind, I still think they're going to pull the trigger and go with a D+ release. As of now, Mulan did fairly well with Premier Access but nowhere near as well as it could've because of it's controversy. Currently, Black Widow has nothing but good fortune and buzz for it, other than the usual problematic Scarlett Johansson -- but that doesn't seem like a huge factor for this film. What they'll really have to settle on is figuring out how to pair this with Winter Soldier and Falcon TV show which will be on the platform for FREE in pretty much the same time frame. They can easily get away with releasing this in October on Premier Access (if they're smart, they'll drop the price to at least $25 this time). If they wait until November or December, people will have the option of waiting for the TV show to get their Marvel fix. Basically, they're going to have to think quick. But the movie will be a huge success, especially if they drop the price a bit, and Mulan will have just been an experiment gone wrong -- in a lot of ways -- but they'll then know Premier Access is a viable model. Whether that's good or bad news for the film industry, we'll see.
No Time to Die - I think they'll hold out for the theatrical experience as long as possible, even if that means 2022. Bond producers are very much traditionalist and will not give in.
This will be pushed again. It was the very first to be delayed at the beginning of the year and Universal honestly has been very progressive with how they push their titles in response to this pandemic, going boldly instead of the meager "oh two weeks here and there, because that will make a difference." I can see them pushing this back to Summer 2021 or even Winter would not surprise me at this point. They know which titles of theirs will succeed, which is why they pushed Fast 9 a whole year, and Bond is no different. It's a huge movie and they want every theater accessible. Could they easily be successful get away with an international release and domestic VOD release? Sure, but again, the traditionalism by those who run the franchise aren't going to be for that and I don't blame them. In their most desperate of circumstances, maybe that will happen, but Universal is probably still rolling in that Trolls money and can wait things out.
Soul - I have an on odd feeling that Onward did not do very well on VOD or Disney+. I think Disney will do their best to make sure this gets a Summer 2021 release. I don't see them releasing a movie in March again, even if it wasn't entirely their fault.
The current rumors are this will get a D+ release in November. Onward ended up doing fairly well over time on D+, as it was the number 1 movie I saw all over social media of families doing their first "backyard movie nights" or new "home theater set ups to replicate the cinema experience" once it settled in by mid-July that theaters weren't likely to open and if they did, it wouldn't be safe anyway. Whether or not it'll be Premier Access is hard to say. Given how Onward didn't rake in pure hard cash from VOD or Box Office, I could see them trying to recoup with Premier Access. Or I can even see them being scared of that failure and just going the D+ route -- maybe even just raising the subscription price a week before the movie launches just to get that extra money.
Dune - At this point, if things are THAT bad, I doubt anything in December will still be holding onto their release dates. Either way, I can see Dune pushing back an entire year to December 2021. Or they might try to make it in time for the Oscars cut off of March 2021, but if they're thinking money, December again it'll be.
This is WB, so I have no idea what the hell they're thinking, but my guess is they know this can be an Oscar contender and a huge box office champion. The newest trailer is seeing a lot of good buzz and with that, they know they're going to have to slate this just perfectly. If they're smart, they'll wait either to Summer 2021 to get their money or wait a whole year to get the best possible chance of Oscar noms. This may even be that 2021 "Early October" release that's done well for them with box office and noms like Gravity and A Star is Born.
West Side Story - Spielberg will probably push this to March 2021 for Oscars season. It doesn't quite fit in the summer as a big hit and waiting a year seems like quite a long time.
I just realized this is technically a Disney release, so that solidifies some thoughts for me. I definitely think this will get pushed to March 2021 for that new late Oscar season. If things still aren't going well, December 2021 it is. I can't imagine Disney thinks this is a surefire blockbuster hit but knows it'll be critically praised. Their best chance is that Oscar buzz or holiday numbers.
Top Gun - Summer 2021, for sure.
Nothing has changed here. And we likely won't hear any news about this until March 2021 at the earliest. My hope is it stays there and theaters will be open and safe. If not, there's no chance this goes VOD and they'll push back to Winter and then even 2022.
Antlers - VOD or dumped in January.
They didn't go for January, but went for February. We will likely know if that sticks after the Holiday season whether everything fails or succeeds and whether or not the public thinks positively of it yet. With that said, I don't see it getting pushed back again if that were to be the case. If we're still in the thick of it, I can see this hitting VOD in March, or maybe getting an international/cross-platform release if distributors want to try it again in 2021 to see how things will turn out that time (and if theaters are even open at all).
Forever Purge - I can see Universal going for it again with VOD, especially on a mid-range property like this.
They're going for the long haul and want to see this open well to big numbers in theaters, so it's getting its usual summer release in 2021. If they're smart, they'll maybe push it up a week or two so it can get those Fourth of July numbers. If FOR WHATEVER REASON, we are still all stuck at home come July 2021, then it will FOR SURE be on VOD.
Promising Young Woman - VOD.
I haven't heard anything about this film getting a new date, so my best guess is they're looking for a streaming platform to take it in. I think it would do really well on Netflix or Amazon or Hulu. If Universal dumps this on Peacock, it'll fail miserably.
Run Sweetheart Run - VOD.
Amazon has acquired the rights to this. Hopefully we'll see it by Halloween 2020!
In the Heights - Summer 2021 release.
Sticking to that June 2021 release for now. I don't see it going VOD, so if it must be pushed again, it'll probably release during the winter (which would be ironic, since I believe it's set in the summer, if I remember correctly).
There's some other 2020 movies we didn't go over the first time, so let's take a look at a few more:
The Croods 2 -- I can see this doing REALLY well on VOD. Honestly, this wouldn't have done that well theatrically anyway. Croods 1 was a LONG time ago and it has very little brand awareness. Unless they were banking on possible international numbers. Throw it on VOD, Universal, its your best bet, especially if bundled as a double feature with the first one.
2 Hearts - VOD. Starring Kissing Booth's hearthrob, it'll actually do well there. I mean, streaming at least. VOD could flop, so definitely try to get acquired by at least Amazon.
Death on the Nile - I can see this doing very well on VOD or Netflix, but my instincts tell me they'll want to push this for the Holiday 2021 season. However, I think interest for it will be fairly low at this point. They could capitalize greatly if this is released this year while there is very little else out.
Honest Thief - VOD. It would be a smart move. Any other year, it may have the surprise hit factor, but this ain't the time for it. VOD or streaming, I could easily seeing this being number 1 for no good reason other than there's nothing else to watch.

Pitcher Notes

Team Notes
Twins Dobnak was simply confused after his last start, when he hit two batters, walked a pair and allowed five runs on only two hits in the third inning vs. St. Louis, a lapse he'll hope to leave behind.
White Sox Dunning has pitched scoreless baseball in two of his four starts this season, including six shutout innings vs. Pittsburgh on Wednesday en route to his first career victory. Dunning has never faced the Twins.

2020.09.11 07:11 dylandynamite Room-mate From Hell! Looking for an Escape Plan

There's always that saying that you probably shouldn't move in with your friends.


How this all started was back in February. I was away from home in Chicago for work related stuff in Miami doing a variety events for a month during the Superbowl. Me and my close friend "E" have been friends well over 20 years. He's been dating this woman "A" for well over 6 years. The three of us would be living together and it was our first move out too. We agreed on a place and moved in the middle of February.

Things definitely changed between me and "A" from the first couple weeks we moved in. She treated the house like it was her house and not our house. I have been demanded to comply with her plethora of house rules that nobody ever discussed about. Some of which are : I'm not allowed to have friends over, I'm not allowed to have girlfriends over either. I can't bring in furniture. "A" doesn't say a word to me in the house either. "A" brings over people whenever she wants ,without giving me a heads up. She acts nice to me in front of her friends when they are over until they leave. When the three of us are watching TV, Me & "E" will chat but " A" never joins in the conversation until i'm done chatting and they will chat about something else.

The worst part, since April,l is that me & "E" have been unemployed because of the Novel Coronavirus so i'm basically stuck in my own home where it's basically a negative environment and everyone I know and love is a couple hours away towards Chicago. It becomes a daily struggle day by day to put up with "A". I've realized that "A" and "E" also have a really toxic relationship and there have been days where they have gotten into some heated and loud arguments. "E" knows, I've been progressively getting more and more miserable as the days progressed but he can't help me out since he feels he's stuck between a rock and a hard place.

As Illinois opens up more and more, I've been purposely spending my days out of the house no matter what. Whether it'd be going on a long walk, hiding at the bowling alley, staying at the bars, visiting car shows and just everything I can do to not come back to my own home that i'm not welcomed in. It gets worse on my mentality daily, i'm unable to sublease. My rent is until April and i'm just trying to find my escape plan and just live on my own elsewhere. There's a lot to list I can go on and on about, i'm really wanting my job to take me back or transfer me out of this state at this point. Before you ask, I have tried talking with "A" & "E" about my issues but it gets easily dismissed . Nothing gets resolved so i'm just stuck in a situation I put myself in.

TD;LR Don't live with your friends

2020.09.11 00:24 TheRazorX ...in which civilian oversight is now a bad thing "Cause Trump"

I rarely post essays.
As someone who's lived in other parts of the world, I've been watching events unfold with a severe dread that surpasses Trump's worst desires (or projected desires).
The thing I fear, is not Trump "winning, it's not Biden "Winning", it's not even directly related to the election itself, rather it's summarized in Friedrich Nietzsche's famous quote;
He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And if you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss also gazes into you.
This quote while widespread is often ignored or dismissed as a side point, however I've long since come to the conclusion that the intense polarization is intended as a feature not a bug, and Trump is just merely a tool in the plan that has been underway for decades.
We've reached the point where BOTH Republicans AND Democrats (speaking of actual regular voters, not politicians or bots, or those minorities on either side that were already "extremists");
Myself and thousands of others that have traveled or lived in "less free" parts of the world have constantly warned of the similarities of the "But Trump" Boogeyman strategy, and of the dangers of this strategy coming to fruition, people from those regions have spoken the warnings clearly in English and of course we're ridiculed attacked and most importantly ignored.. Because "it can't happen here". Furthermore, the truth is, we've seen many "Trumps" before in recent times.
Anyone that has ever looked at any "Authoritarian" country, recognizes a very simple fact; People enable and allow said tyranny. Consent of the Governed is in fact given to both Democratic leaders and Authoritarian leaders.
In each and every one of these countries, no matter how despicable their leaders, they always manage to find support out of a fear of one or many "Boogeymen". In MENA, the holy trinity of Boogeymen is; The USA, Israel, The Muslim Brotherhood. And depending on which part of MENA, either Iran/Saudi.
Anything and everything wrong with the country, is the fault of one of those Boogeymen, and as a result quite a few people will hate their leaders openly, know they're corrupt thieves, murderers, pedophiles...etc but still back them because at least they're "protecting us from X". They'll be outraged at whatever crime the regime commits against the people, but willingly eat up the pro-regime propaganda because "They were trouble makers that deserved it" or "They were agents of Israel/USA" or "This is a plot by Israel/USA/Iran/Saudi"..etc. The list goes on and on and on. So much so that a common "twisting" of Karl Marx's adage on religion is "Israel is the Opiate of the Arabs", a concept naturally twisted by pro-Israel parties to deflect away from Israel's actual crimes, using typical "Whataboutism"
Sound familiar?
There's no doubt those "Boogeymen" are scary and regularly commit crimes. But the fact that someone commits crimes, has never ever meant that others have not themselves committed crimes. But they want you to think that, or even worse, they want the crimes of said Boogeymen to excuse the crimes of those in their own tribes.
There's a very real reason the astroturfing efforts are focused on "So you want Trump to win?" and "So you're voting for Trump?" type messages when trying to "convince" voters to back Biden that are skeptical. So much so, they haven't even bothered to pretend otherwise. They want binary.
There's a very very VERY good reason that Bernie said we need a global progressive front, and that Yanis Varoufakis agreed., What we're seeing happen in the USA, we saw before in multiple countries. They understand that with corporate authoritarian power going multinational and coordinating on an international basis, we need an international front to fight it, and not just focus on "local" stuff, because as I'm trying to point out, you end up seeing the same tactics happen elsewhere because even those that bother to pay cursory attention think or say "it can't happen here", or more importantly, even if they do understand the possibility of it "happening here" only see it in the light of tribalism, where only "The other" is willing or capable to bring it to fruition.
We're now at the point where civilian oversight of an election is considered a "bad thing" by "Liberals", "cause Drumpf", this isn't the first (or even last) time I've heard something similar. For example, it's anecdotal, but a friend reported once that during a conversation, a very liberal and otherwise "normal" but very "Dem" co-worker mentioned that she found it "extremely creepy" that a Bernie supporter was video taping her counting votes at a precinct in 2016 when she was a volunteer poll worker. She obviously wasn't a Bernie fan.

That is the bigger threat, that is the bigger "goal" that you can easily trace going back to 1971 or even 1933. This is the culmination of everything, including Trump and the Pied Piper strategy (A strategy they continue to repeat even though we've already seen and felt the real results of it on actual people, specifically the most disadvantaged); To effectively and gradually "guide" the populace into accepting tyranny and fascism, either out of exploiting their fears, or out of giving them a sense of self righteousness in which suppressing "the other" is for a "righteous cause" or "the greater good". They've slowly convinced a large group of people across political ideologies that "Stability is more important than Freedom", Something we've seen said before by Trump's "Favorite Dictator", causing a perception shift here in the USA that we're seeing happen in real time., largely mirroring the sentiment in "non-free" countries

You're either with us, or against us is now the rallying cry across the board.. one we've heard before even here in the USA, a message that when last we heard it, it was used to justify one of the worst crimes of the modern era
The intense polarization of America along acceptance of authoritarian tolerance is a feature, not a bug. To quote the pinned tweet of one of the aforementioned accounts;
“The junk merchant doesn't sell his product to the consumer, he sells the consumer to his product. He does not improve and simplify his merchandise. He degrades and simplifies the client.”
~William S. Burroughs, Naked Lunch
Multiple studies from reputable sources have sounded the alarm that faith in democracy is fading fast, but once again, no one is listening, even when "Liberal" favorites talk about it.
To give you an example of what I mean, folks wanting the government to "verify" news (to combat fake news), completely forget (or intentionally omit) the fact that the very same laws they're recommending have already been implemented in multiple countries and only benefit the ruling regime, who use them as just another tool to silence dissident. Furthermore, there are other methods of combating disinformation that don't erode civil liberties., but we rarely hear about them in public discourse, the choice we're always given is "Give up this right, or suffer the consequences".
And a crucial but (intentionally?) overlooked fact on the free-speech debate, starts cutting through all the fog;
“Constitutional protection should be accorded only to speech that is explicitly political,” he wrote. “There is no basis for judicial intervention to protect any other form of expression, be it scientific, literary or that variety of expression we call obscene or pornographic.”
But a transformative ruling by the Supreme Court five years later began to change that thinking. The case, a challenge to a state law that banned advertising the prices of prescription drugs, was filed by Public Citizen, a consumer rights group founded by Ralph Nader. The group argued that the law hurt consumers, and helped persuade the court, in Virginia State Board of Pharmacy v. Virginia Citizens Consumer Council, to protect advertising and other commercial speech.
The only dissent in the decision came from Justice William H. Rehnquist, the court’s most conservative member.
Kathleen M. Sullivan, a former dean of Stanford Law School, wrote that it did not take long for corporations to see the opportunities presented by the decision.
“While the case was litigated by consumer protection advocates,” she wrote in the Harvard Law Review, “corporate speakers soon became the principal beneficiaries of subsequent rulings that, for example, struck down restrictions on including alcohol content on beer can labels, limitations on outdoor tobacco advertising near schools and rules governing how compounded drugs may be advertised.”
That trend has continued, with businesses mounting First Amendment challenges to gun control laws, securities regulations, country-of-origin labels, graphic cigarette warnings and limits on off-label drug marketing.
“I was a bit queasy about it because I had the sense that we were unleashing something, but nowhere near what happened,” Mr. Nader said. “It was one of the biggest boomerangs in judicial cases ever.”
“I couldn’t be Merlin,” he added. “We never thought the judiciary would be as conservative or corporate. This was an expansion that was not preordained by doctrine. It was preordained by the political philosophies of judges.”
Not all of the liberal scholars and lawyers who helped create modern First Amendment law are disappointed. Martin Redish, a law professor at Northwestern University, who wrote a seminal 1971 article proposing First Amendment protection for commercial speech, said he was pleased with the Roberts court’s decisions.
“Its most important contributions are in the commercial speech and corporate speech areas,” he said. “It’s a workmanlike, common sense approach.”
Liberals also played a key role in creating modern campaign finance law in Buckley v. Valeo, the 1976 decision that struck down limits on political spending by individuals and was the basis for Citizens United, the 2010 decision that did away with similar limits for corporations and unions.
One plaintiff was Senator Eugene J. McCarthy, Democrat of Minnesota, who had challenged President Lyndon B. Johnson in the 1968 presidential primaries — from the left. Another was the American Civil Liberties Union’s New York affiliate.
Professor Neuborne, a former A.C.L.U. lawyer, said he now regrets the role he played in winning the case. “I signed the brief in Buckley,” he said. “I’m going to spend long amounts of time in purgatory.”
To Professor Seidman, cases like these were part of what he describes as a right-wing takeover of the First Amendment since the liberal victories in the years Chief Justice Earl Warren led the Supreme Court.
“With the receding of Warren court liberalism, free-speech law took a sharp right turn,” Professor Seidman wrote in a new article to be published in the Columbia Law Review. “Instead of providing a shield for the powerless, the First Amendment became a sword used by people at the apex of the American hierarchy of power. Among its victims: proponents of campaign finance reform, opponents of cigarette addiction, the L.B.G.T.Q. community, labor unions, animal rights advocates, environmentalists, targets of hate speech and abortion providers.
Yet, almost all the discourse in free speech debates/"Cancel culture" is focused on anything EXCEPT the corporate aspect, and naturally ignores the only groups actually and truly at a disadvantage.. Joy Ann Reid's was never "cancelled" for her Islamophobia, bigotry, racism, antisemitism...etc , but was rather rewarded with a prime time show, and many of the same "liberals" applaud her regularly.
And obviously on the Right, none of them are "Cancelled" for any obvious transgressions.
It starts getting clearer when you realize what types of people are "agreeing" with each other on the subject, and who certain folks decided to target
All that paints a very clear picture; Only your rights should be revoked. "We" should be given a pass.
Side note; I also find it interesting how many twisted abuses can be traced back to the corporate response to Nader's (at the time) very effective citizen activism.. That was the pivotal moment. Which makes it all the easier to see how they so effectively managed to turn him into a pariah.
On a related note, Information warfare has been predicted to be the new major war front at least as far back as 1996, so this isn't something they just started thinking about in 2016, contrary to popular perception. Hell, an extremely popular anime talked of it in the early 2000s, and fictionally exhibited things we see in reality today.
Even Bin Laden, the infamous terrorist, understood the ramifications, and considered it a primary tenant of his "Death by a thousand cuts" strategy, although he was primary focused on inflicting economic harm.
And "we" walked right into it willingly. Why? Well perhaps this next quote will shed some light;
Richard Shultz, a professor of international politics at Tufts who’s long been a key national security state intellectual, wrote in 2004 that “A very senior [Special Operations Forces] officer who had served on the Joint Staff in the 1990s told me that more than once he heard terrorist strikes characterized as ‘a small price to pay for being a superpower.’
Again, the missed subtext is clear; Human lives lost in terrorism attacks (and increased radicalization due to US actions leading to more potential terrorist attacks) are a cheap price for global (and more importantly economic) dominance. By extension, one can assume that human lives lost to other corporate goals are also considered a "cheap cost".

This is NOT ok.

Speaking of radicalization and Al-Qaeda....
What did the founding fathers (that conservatives love to reference) think of stuff like this?
Abraham Lincoln warned in February 15, 1848, of the dangers of "Only I see and understand the danger, only I can protect you" type politics.
Allow the President to invade a neighboring nation whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion, and you allow him to do so whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such purpose, and you allow him to make war at pleasure. Study to see if you can fix any limit to his power in this respect, after having given him so much as you propose. If to-day he should choose to say he thinks it necessary to invade Canada to prevent the British from invading us, how could you stop him? You may say to him,—”I see no probability of the British invading us”; but he will say to you, “Be silent: I see it, if you don’t.”
The provision of the Constitution giving the war making power to Congress was dictated, as I understand it, by the following reasons: kings had always been involving and impoverishing their people in wars, pretending generally, if not always, that the good of the people was the object. This our convention understood to be the most oppressive of all kingly oppressions, and they resolved to so frame the Constitution that no one man should hold the power of bringing this oppression upon us. But your view destroys the whole matter, and places our President where kings have always stood. Write soon again.
James Madison on Friday, February 8th, 1788 warned;
But the great security against a gradual concentration of the several powers in the same department, consists in giving to those who administer each department the necessary constitutional means and personal motives to resist encroachments of the others. The provision for defense must in this, as in all other cases, be made commensurate to the danger of attack. Ambition must be made to counteract ambition. The interest of the man must be connected with the constitutional rights of the place. It may be a reflection on human nature, that such devices should be necessary to control the abuses of government. But what is government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.
What's often missed, is the subtext of Madison's warning, and central to the thesis of this essay, clarifies that yes, Government is supposed to represent the will of the people (or what they're willing to tolerate), but what happens when "the people" are "guided" to a particular view? Why is propaganda so prevalent and effective? Why do we reject the very clear evidence and science that entire populations can in fact be "rewired" to a particular view?
In other words, combining the warnings of Nietzsche, Lincoln and Madison's warning leads to the conclusion that yes, if "properly guided" the people can be taught to "yearn for a king", something which again, we've seen happen in practice across the world.
In closing, while none of this information is new but we're reaching the apex of a long arc, and if you've read this and thought one or more of;
Then you're exactly part of the problem I'm warning of. I'm not saying vote for Trump, I'm not saying vote for Biden. I'm not saying to vote at all, or that voting actually has much to do with it in the first place.
I'm pointing out a very simple fact expressed once by Benjamin Franklin, and even though the context was endlessly butchered, the real context makes it far more relevant;
In January 1775 Benjamin Franklin (1796-1790) was part of an American delegation sent to Britain in an attempt to resolve the outstanding disagreements between the Crown and the colonies. Seventeen points were up for discussion of which several were rejected outright by the Crown while others were rejected by the colonies. Franklin’s comments regarding the last two points produced one of his most famous sayings from the period:
As to the other two acts, (i.e. 16. The American admiralty courts reduced to the same powers they have in England, and the acts establishing them to be reënacted in America; and 17. All powers of internal legislation in the colonies to be disclaimed by Parliament) the Massachusetts (sic) must suffer all the hazards and mischiefs of war rather than admit the alteration of their charters and laws by Parliament. ‘They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.’
The context explained in the analysis makes it ever more clear;
It is interesting to see where the main lines of disagreement lay between the colonists' delegation to London and the Crown in early 1775 which one would think would have been the last opportunity at some kind of reconciliation before independence was declared and war broke out. The sticking points for the Crown were the 8th, 11th, and 17th Articles which were declared to be “inadmissible” or were “refused absolutely”: “8. No troops to enter and quarter in any colony, but with the consent of its legislature. 11. The late Massachusetts and Quebec Acts to be repealed, and a free government granted to Canada. 17. All powers of internal legislation in the colonies to be disclaimed by Parliament.” The payment of back taxes might be negotiable but when it came to the stationing of troops or placing limits on the power of Parliament over colonial legislatures no compromise was possible without giving up political power. Franklin’s remarks about the trade offs between “essential liberty” and “a little temporary safety” seem to have been directed at those in the colonies who could see that further compromise was no longer possible by the Crown and that it was up to the colonies to cave in in order to maintain the peace. Franklin was urging them that to do this would be to give up the entire game and thereby scuttle any chance for real liberty and independence in the colonies.

The king is dead, long live the king.

TL;DR : Shit is fucked. Read it.

2020.09.10 17:55 Fotoem Accessories for New Telescope

Hey fellow space enthusiast,
I’m about to pull the trigger on my first telescope and wanted to get your input on what accessories I need to get.
I’m going to purchase the Celestron Nexstar 8SE for visuals but also dabble in some astrophotography. I don’t expect to take a deep dive into astrophotography and I’m aware this telescope will have its shortcomings in that area.
I live in Chicago so light pollution will be an issue and I plan to take it to a few spots outside of the city on occasion. I also plan on doing an occasional trip to a dark site. My other goal with the telescope is to get my 3 and 5 year old interested in space and the sciences in general. My daughter is already asking for the telescope’s arrival date. So ease of transportation is why I’m not considering a Dobsonian telescope at this time.
Some of the accessories that I’m thinking of buying:
Celestron 8mm to 24 mm zoom lens
Celestron 3x Barlow lens
a Powertank
F6/3 reducer
AC adapter
Light pollution filter (Is there a separate moon filter?)
Celestron Skysync GPS
Turn Left at Orion book
Nightwatcher book
Carrying case
Finder Scope because I keep hearing the one on the telescope is not good
Orion Schmidt-Cassegrain Finder Scope Base
Smartphone adapter (I also have a Canon 5D Mark III that I can use if there is an adapte I haven’t researched this because it is not a priority but any input would be appreciated)
A dew shield
Anti-vibration pads
I can purchase most of these accessories at the same time as I purchase the telescope but will have to get a few others later on. What else am I missing? Of items that I’m missing, should they take priority in getting over anything I listed here?
As for apps, I have already downloaded SkySafari. The telescope includes Starry Night educational software. What other apps do you think are worth checking out? I thought I took a screenshot of a paid app that was highly recommended but I can’t find it or remember the name of it. It was about a $10 purchase.
I also have the light pollution map booked marked and plan to attend local astronomy club events once the world is a little safer.
For anyone in Chicago, what are some locations with less light pollution you like to take your telescopes to? I already know of the Bartel Grasslands.
Finally, thank you for all of the knowledge that I have learned so far from this sub and thank you in advance for taking time out of your days to respond.
Cheers,
(I'm on my mobile so sorry about the formatting issues).

2020.09.10 09:56 Markdd8 What do we make of this viewpoint in conservative NY City Journal?: "The unwinding of law and order in our cities has happened with stunning speed."

The article seems accurate on reciting numerous cases of violence in black communities the past several months. And also violence against police. But the linking text and conclusions? Hyperbole or basically accurate?
Breakdown -- The unwinding of law and order in our cities has happened with stunning speed. Excerpts:
It took several months for the first iteration of the Ferguson Effect to become obvious. Michael Brown was fatally shot by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer in August 2014...Officers backed off proactive policing in minority neighborhoods...
Today’s violent-crime increase—call it Ferguson Effect 2.0 or the Minneapolis Effect—has come on with a speed and magnitude that make Ferguson 1.0 seem tranquil. George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police in late May was justly condemned—but the event has now spurred an outpouring of contempt against the pillars of law and order that has no precedent in American history...
During the two weeks of national anarchy that followed the death of George Floyd, cops were shot, slashed, and assaulted; their vehicles and station houses were firebombed and destroyed. American elites stayed silent. Since then, police have continued to be shot at and attacked; the elites remain silent.
Recitations of violence in communities: In Minneapolis, shootings have more than doubled this year...In nearby St. Paul...one 17-year-old boy has been shot in four different events over the last month and a half....In Chicago, 18 people were killed and 47 wounded in drive- and walk-by shootings last weekend....(article dated July 1)...The previous weekend in Chicago, 104 people were shot, 15 fatally. The deceased included a three-year-old boy riding in a car with his father on Father’s Day—his gangbanger father was the intended victim—and a 13-year-old girl shot in her head in her home....etc., etc.
The victims in these shootings are overwhelmingly black. So far this year, 78 percent of all homicide victims in Chicago are black, though blacks are less than a third of the population. But the defund-the-police advocates and the Democratic establishment have said nothing about the growing loss of black lives...
Violence against officers. Ambushes await officers who respond to gunfire alerts, illegal house parties, and other crimes. This weekend, New York officers were assaulted with bottles and garbage by a group of about 500 people at 3:45 A.M. in Harlem as they tried to find the source of a shooting picked up by ShotSpotter technology...
These are no longer the warning signs of a possible breakdown of civilized life. That breakdown is upon us.
