Background: Yesterday I was in San Diego having fun at the beach. For a while I sat on the shore with my feet in the water reading The Diary of a Young Girl. Then a miracle happened. A score of little bottles reached land and assembled in between my bare feet. I could see that each was sealed and contained a short note. I picked up the bottles carefully and moved them to safety.

I just learned from you tube that it blocked an old youtube video of Israeli soldiers running away once faced with Palestinian opposition (kids with stones). It must have been too humiliating for the regional super power to witness how weak it is in reality.
We must wonder, how is it possible that the West is led by a bunch of democratically elected imbeciles yet, Russia is led by prime intellects such as Lavrov and Putin. Is it a coincidence? Or may be there is a reason behind this strange phenomenon...

Had a great time talking with Sarah Chaplin on Monday (16th April 2018).
I had an incredible time yesterday talking to Jason Liosatos. We spoke about the current Dystopia, tyranny of correctness, ID nonsense, the Ziocon war mongers and their service providers in Britain, USA and France.
