This article appeared on The Saker's website. It's worth a careful read:
Brief thoughts (e.g. 100 words or less).
Apropos of today's main blog, Tom Luongo has written this analysis of the Gulf attacks: bottom line: he too doesn't think the Persians are nuts. There's three caches of nuts: one in Tel Aviv, one in Riyad, and one in Swamptington, D.C.
This was another of those weeks when the inbox was stuffed with many blog-worthy articles. Here's a few you many be interested in:
This early paper on geophysical warfare was shared by R.B., and it's quite important!
This review of the "Arkancide timeline" is helpful, and it contains a healthy dollop of its own high octane speculation, shared by V.T.:
C.V. shared these two articles, the first states that the California wildfires were sparked by a hammer (uh huh... what do you expect from CNN?) and the second states that PG&E might "proactively turn off people's electricity" since there is a fire danger:
M.W. spotted and shared this article about I.G. Farbensanto's plans for a seed factory in Chile:

While we continue to get more rain than anyone including Noah though possible, here are this week's honorable mentions:
G.L.R. spotted this intriguing video:
Just when you think Nuttyfornia couldn't possibly become any nuttier, there's this shared by CAF:
And there's this explanation for it shared by V.T.:
G.K. spotted this article in which the Russians claim to have a gravity weapon (but it is, after all Pravda, which is well known for making wild claims, like, "Purges? what purges?"):
And in San Franfreakshow, Nuttyfornia, there's this:
And V.T. spotted this op-ed about the political and cultural implications of having a predominantly stupid population:
Was this the latest Arkancide?... or something else?
Hi folks: once again, I'm going to have to beg your indulgence as I've had to change the vidchat schedule again. I was fully planning to have the 7PM Pacific-Americas vidchat this Friday afternoon and evening, but they are predicting bad weather for tomorrow, Wednesday, all the way through Friday evening. I have moved that vidchat to the 14th of this month, rather than take a chance that severe weather will interfere with a vidchat this Friday. We desperately desperately need to get out of this awful pattern.
Wow! This was quite a week - and not just from the standpoint of trying to dodge tornadoes - but also because the amount of great articles was almost overwhelming:
S.D. spotted this one about the USA's first conspiracy theorist: President George Washington:
Many people spotted this about the French senate prohibiting any rebuild of Notre Dame not aimed at restoring the original structure:
J.D. spotted this article indicating that I might be wrong about the British Crown's view of the European Union:
V.T. passed along this important article examining a possible group behind the so-called Q-anon phenomenon:
And V.t. also spotted this one about a whole new method of vote-rigging:
S.D. found this article about an anti-fertility drug being discovered in a UN vaccine by the Government of Kenya (and they say eugenics is dead... bah!):
Apropos of today's main blog, R.P. found this very short video on RT of a Russian rocket launch being struck by lightning:
Hi everyone: this is just to let everyone know there's a new Dialogue in the members' area with Elana Freeland.
OK folks, Daniel informed me that Google has apparently fixed whatever was wrong with Google hangouts, but as I have company, I'm unable to look into it until tomorrow afternoon, so there will still be no vidchat. But if everything works out, I will try to re-schedule tomorrow vidchat for NEXT Friday, so remember to watch the schedule, and I'll post a notice here (if I remember, lol). I've also been trying to line up a new Dialogue guest but the weather and Google issues haven't helped, but we're still working on that as well. Thank you everyone for your patience!
Hi folks, well, it seems for the moment we're dead in the water. Danielm had the same problems I did with the google hangouts platform, and hence there won't be a vidchat this week as we're going to try to have to find a similar platform that actually WORKS. I'll try to keep everyone posted. I deeply apologize about this.
