2020.11.28 06:36 s_maican Reddit brings all the crazies 2gether i love it

(LAST POST SRY 4 SPAM LY) My hands r freesing sorry for the retarded spelling but like, yall going thru some weird shit yall would never share irl just like i do. Im a weirdo but i avoid other weirdos cuz they weird haha. But here we all unite and support each other lol. Ik i sound strange but my main english knowledge is fro. Yters celebs and movies so im bound to sound strange sry. I have spammed the shit out of this subreddit sry no more. But like when i had a panic attack and posted 20 fucking posts on dxm that got deleted now a redditor helped me but thats whole another story. Is it true balkan girls are the blackest white girls? I got that from Andrew Shulz ,im Balkan, i kinda see what he means, its all jokes but kinda, lowkey true, we sassy lol, im not tryna sound rude im just ramblin at this point, but like my 2 best friends sleep rn and yk i gotta spam the shit outta here forgive mee. So i got 2 epiphanies 2day. 1. I may have been addicted 2 weed even if i smoked like super rarely. My bong will stay lonely in my closet just like i did since 4 months ago ;). 2. Girls need cash to look as smexy as they dk yes i said that 2008 cringe word. 3. Im rambling random fucking shit. 4. Drag queens kinda disgusted me when i was little but now im in love with them 5. My current addiction is coffee. 6.i never found Ellen funny. Like ever. #noonecares 7. Hashtags r retarded. 8. Ive thkught about being like genuinely retarded but i think, nahh, its more the low self esteem, at least i hope so lmao thats so insensitive. 9. Im a offensive bitch, thats why i rarely open up. 10. Shena Dawson looked like a gay pedophile when i first saw his vids , he always had that pedo feel. I was tight call me Rasputin. 11. This list looks like it was written under the influence of a drug. It was not. Im sleep deprived and freezing. 12. Im lowkey highkey a internet attention whore fuck. 13. My house it so messy again, when i get depressen i make it a whole mess. 14. My leg fel asleep from sittin on it on the staircase in the hallway, halp. Literally more than 50% or emos are openly gay now. Just sayin im kinda gay myself so no homophobic feels yall. The worst drug experience was nicotine. Even drinking half a bottle of cough cyrup was more pleasant and i thought i would die so that days something. Best was weed, and one time a doctor gave me benzos after said cough syrup trip resulted in a call to an ambulance. Im fine now yall 2 months clean from all of the shit. Im sorry i shit out facts bout me like that but i either stay completely quiet or shit facts nonstop so deal with it or ignore this novel idc. Thanks 4 yr time, stay safe from all illneses corona has nothin on syphilis and tuberculosis you know. Jk but still , i gtg , share a fact bout yrself and dont be creepy in comments or dm or you will be blocked pls ur better than this bois and 40 yr old men browsin reddit i believe in ya.✌

2020.11.26 10:07 dustinlu My Reading List for Modern Chinese History

A reading list I suggest for Chinese history in modern period: from late Qing to the reform and opening-up. "Modern" is a very complex concept, to avoid confusion, here I just use it to refer to the time period mentioned above. I divided the long period into sperate short periods chronically, and added some special topics for supplement. I came up with this idea, listing some books for people to read, some time ago, and I spent several hours in the past few days and finishes writing it. During my research, I found that many topics were so neglected by the English academia, that I can't even find some introductory books for my list! So I used some journal articles instead, and unwillingly dropped some topics. I am not a history major, so I can't garuantee the professionality of this list. Also, I have only read part of the books I listed, these books I'm sure they are great. For the others, I am only aware that they are great or important books, I haven't got the time to read them yet. Nonetheless, I think this list still is worth attention and may help you familiarize the history of china during this period.

2020.11.25 23:24 CatEyes420 How the Rothschilds took over the World (long but informative)

Amschel Moses Rothschild was born in about 1710. He was a German Jewish silk trader and money changer in the Judengasse (Jewstreet) in Frankfurt. Around 1743 he placed a red hexagram sign (which numerically and geometrically convert into the number 666) above the entrance of his door. His house was also red in color.
Within two centuries, the Rothschild, instructed this hexagram sign to be made part of the Israeli flag 🇮🇱. He had 8 children with Schönche Lechnich, one of his sons, Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812), is the founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty. He marries Guttle SchnappeSchönche Lechnich (Rothschild) in 1770, and they have 10 children together.
Around 1760, Mayer Amschel Bauer worked for a bank owned by the Oppenheimer (are part of Rothschild family/married, had children together..). Mayer was very successful and became a junior partner, where he meets General von Estorff.
After Mayer Amschel Bauer’s father Moses Amschel Bauer died, Mayer changed his name from Bauer to Rothschild (Rot = red / Schild = sign).
Mayer Amschel Rothschild and his sons establish what was known as the Five Arrows of Banking. These golden arrows can be seen on the eagle’s talons visible on the coat of arms city from Frankfurt, Germany. It represented the 5 sons who managed the global banking Houses of the Rothschild which included:
• Frankfurt • London • Paris • Vienna • Napl 
Mayer discovers that General von Estorff is aquatinted with the court of Prince William IX, Landgrave of Hesse-Hanau (known today as Hesse-Kassel) (married?). The royal house of William obtained its’ wealth by the hiring out or exporting their soldiers to foreign countries for major profit.
Mayer began selling William IX rare trinkets, treasures, and coins at extra low prices. Eventually, as planned, Mayer is introduced to the Prince himself, who is delighted with the modified prices. Mayer even offers the prince a perk for any new business opportunities, William could direct his way. As a result, Mayer Amschel Rothschild and Prince William join forces and become business accomplices.
In 1769, Prince William grants Mayer approval to hang a sign on his business storefront declaring that he is, “M. A. Rothschild, by appointment court factor to his serene highness, Prince William of Hanau.”
In 1773, Amschel Mayer Rothschild is born, eventually he would take over the Frankfurt bank. He is the first of Mayer’s sons who will all eventually enter the family business at 12 years of age. He is followed by Salomon Mayer Rothschild, in 1774.
In 1776, Mayer Amschel Rothschild creates the Illuminati and hands over the organizations development to Adam Weishaupt. Weishaupt sneaks in the Continental Order of Freemasons with this Illuminati doctrine. This doctrine claims a new order for the human race under the dictatorship of Satan and his supporters. This view is accepted and spread like a wildfire and is pursued in Masonic Lodges worldwide to this day.
In 1777, Nathan Mayer Rothschild is born, who is followed by Kalmann (Carl) Mayer Rothschild/Carl Mayer Freiherr von Rothschild in 1788. Carl is the founder of the Rothschild banking family of Naples. He had child named Adolf Carl....
In 1791, Alexander Hamilton, (a Rothschild representative in George Washington’s cabinet) and the Rothschilds, infiltrated a central bank in the newly established United States colonies. This bank was know as the Bank of the United States and was organized with a 20 year charter.
“Jacob” or “James” Mayer de Rothschild or Baron de Rothschild is born in 1792. Originally named Jakob Mayer Rothschild. He is the youngest child of Mayer. He was a German-French banker and is the founder of the French banking branch of the Rothschild family. He had 5 children.
Amschel Mayer Rothschild marries Eva Hanau in 1796.
In 1798, Mayer, grants his son, Nathan Mayer Rothschild, a major sum of money, and sends him to England, to advance the family interests in importing textile. This allowed him to establish a bank in the City of London known as N. M. Rothschild & Sons.
In 1806, Prince William, escapes Germany and assigns his $3,000,000 fortune over to Mayer Amschel Rothschild for guardianship, because Napoleon made it his objective to abolish the rulership and influence of the house of Hess-Cassel.
Nathan Mayer also marries Rothschild Hannah Barent Cohen during this time.
In 1808, Nathan Mayer Rothschild has his first child, Lionel Nathan de Rothschild.
In 1810, Mayer entered into a formal partnership agreement with his three eldest sons. Abraham Goldsmid and Sir Francis Baring die, leaving Nathan Mayer Rothschild as the last major remaining banker in England.
Salomon Mayer Rothschild launches the bank, M. von Rothschild und Söhne in Vienna, Austria. And Calmann ("Carl") established the branch in Naples, Italy.
The youngest son Jacob, was sent to Paris in 1811, strengthening the family's ability to operate across Europe by opening the bank “de Rothschild Frères. This allowed them to profit by funding the Wellington's armies in Portugal, which required them to secure large quantities of gold in favor of the British government.
The charter established between the Rothschild and the Bank of the United States in 1791 runs out in 1811 and Congress decided to vote against its renewal.
Andrew Jackson (7th President of the U.S. from 1829 to 1837) stated, “If Congress has a right under the Constitution to issue paper money, it was given them to use by themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations.”
Nathan Mayer Rothschild replied, “Either the application for renewal of the charter is granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war.”
In 1812, Britain, which was supported by the Rothschild empire, declared war on the United States. The Rothschilds systematically arranged this war to cause the United States to build up a major debt due to them defending themselves. Eventually, they would have to surrender which forced them to renew the charter for the Rothschild owned Bank of the United States.
Mayer Amschel Rothschild perishes. In his will, he establishes very specific rules that the Rothschild must obey:
• All major positions in the family business may only be held by family members; specifically only male members, which included a rumored sixth bastard son. (Mayer Amschel also had five daughters. Their Zionist empire also included mixed offspring of Jewish decent.) • In order to preserve their fortune they had to intermarry with their first and second cousins (16 of the 18 marriages between Mayers’ grandchildren were between first cousins). • No publication of their estates or inventory • no legal action was to be taken with respect to the value of their fortune • The oldest son of the oldest son was to become the head of the family, but this could be reversed if the bulk of the family decided otherwise. 
The $3,000,000 entrusted to Mayer by Prince William is accounted for in the Jewish Encyclopaedia, 1905 edition, Volume 10, page 494, which states, “According to legend this money was hidden away in wine casks, and, escaping the search of Napoleon’s soldiers when they entered Frankfurt, was restored intact in the same casks in 1814, when the elector (Prince William IX of Hesse-Hanau) returned to the electorate (Germany). The facts are somewhat less romantic, and more businesslike.”
The money was never truly “returned” by Rothschild to Prince William, instead their families married each other for business purposes, to keep the money hidden and allowing both families to gain and grow the empire. The encyclopaedia also states, “Nathan Mayer Rothschild invested this $3,000,000 in, gold from the East India Company knowing that it would be needed for Wellington’s peninsula campaign.” The Rothschilds made, “no less than four profits: 1. i) On the sale of Wellington’s paper which he bought at 50 cents on the dollar and collected at par; 2. ii) on the sale of gold to Wellington; 3. iii) on its repurchase; and 4. iv) on forwarding it to Portugal.”
In 1815, the Rothschild brothers started their policy of financing both sides of the wars by the suppling them with gold Wellington’s army (Nathan in England) and Napoleon’s army (Jacob in France).
Since these brothers had banks spread out across Europe, it allowed them to set up an unmatched postal service grid of secret routes and couriers allowing them to be one step ahead of the crowd.
These couriers were the only ones allowed to pass through the French and English blockades, which then reported back to Nathan and kept him up to date with how the war was going allowing him to buy/sell stock successfully.
When the war ended and the British defeated Napoleon, Nathan, through past strategic planning made a return of 20:1 on his investments, which gave the Rothschilds complete control over the British economy forcing England to establish a different Bank of England, which Nathan controlled. He would later state,
“I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.”
The newly established Bank of England controlled by the Rothschilds changed their approach of shipping gold to different countries by using their five banks across Europe to set up a banking system of paper credits and, which is still used today.
In 1816, the Rothschild’s charter for the Bank of the United States was renewed for twenty more years giving the Rothschilds full control of the American money supply once again.
After the French’s defeat at Waterloo, the French attained major loans in 1817 to rebuild themselves.
In 1818, the Rothschilds, bought large amounts of French government bonds allowing them to take control of the French money supply. They also loaned the Prussian government £5,000,000.
In the year 1821, Kalmann (Carl Mayer Rothschild), was sent to Naples, Italy. There he conducted many business deals with Pope Gregory XVI and the Vatican, eventually coming up with the Order of St. George.
By 1823, the Rothschild empire has gained complete financial control over the Catholic Church operations, globally.
In 1827, Sir Walter Scott, published a nine volume set book series. In volume two he writes that the French Revolution was prepared by Adam Weishaipt’s Illuminati and funded by the Rothschilds’ European banking empire.
In 1835, the 7th president of the United States, Andrew Jackson, began placing the federal funds into banks managed by democratic bankers instead of the Rothschild governed Bank of the United States.
This lead to an assassination attempt being made on President Jackson, who would later declare that he knew the Rothschilds were at fault for the assassination attempt.
The Rothschilds gained ownership over the Almadén quicksilver mines in Spain. This was important, because quicksilver was a critical factor in the refining of gold or silver. This established a basic world monopoly for the Rothschild banking empire.
Nathan Mayer Rothschild dies in 1836. and his bank, N. M. Rothschild & Sons is taken over by his younger brother, James Mayer Rothschild.
In the year 1837, President Andrew Jackson succeeds in overthrowing the Rothschild controlled Bank of America. It wouldn’t be until the year 1913 that the Rothschilds could reestablish their third central bank in America, the (illegal) Federal Reserve.
In 1838, Amschel Mayer Rothschild declares, “Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws.”
In 1840, the Rothschilds become stock brokers of the Bank of England. This allows them to set up agencies in Australia and California.
In 1844, Salomon Mayer Rothschild, buys the United Coal Mines of Vítkovice and a Hungarian Blast Furnace Company.
Jacob (James) Mayer Rothschild/Baron James de Rothschild, married his niece, Betty, who is the daughter of his brother Salomon Mayer Rothschild. James wins a deal allowing him to assemble the first major railroad line called the Chemin De Fer Du Nord, which ran from Paris to Valenciennes. Eventually this railway would join together with the Austrian rail-system built by his brother Salomon Mayer Rothschild.
In 1858, Lionel De Rothschild takes his seat in the British parliament making him the first Jewish member.
In 1861, the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln (1860-1865) secures loans through the Rothschilds to fund the American civil war via Charters, but these loans came at high interest rates (between 24% -36%).
So, Lincoln decided to print his own money, which was debt free and could be legally used in private and public debts/affairs. By April 1862, $449,338,902 of the debt free money Lincoln created was distributed.
In 1863, Italy, unifies causing the (Carl) Rothschild bank in Naples, Italy, to close. So the Rothschilds decided they would use their American assistant, John D. Rockefeller, to help establish an oil business also known as Standard Oil, who became the leader in the industry.
Alexander II (1855 – 1881), Tsar of Russia, also had issues with the Rothschilds, because he refused to let them set up a central bank in Russia. In 1864, Abraham Lincoln discovers this feud and request Tsar to help fund the Civil War. Tsar agrees and sends part of his navy to the coast of New York and California. Allowing Lincoln to win the Civil War.
In 1865, President Lincoln states in a statement to Congress, “I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me, and the financial institution in the rear. Of the two, the one in my rear is my greatest foe.”
President Lincoln is assassinated later that year (1865).
Otto von Bismarck states in 1876, “The division of the United States into two federations of equal force was decided long before the civil war by the high financial power of Europe.These bankers were afraid that the United States, if they remained in one block and as one nation, would attain economical and financial independence, which would upset their financial domination over the world. The voice of the Rothschilds predominated. They foresaw the tremendous booty if they could substitute two feeble democracies, indebted to the financiers, to the vigorous Republic, confident and self-providing. Therefore they started their emissaries in order to exploit the question of slavery and thus dig an abyss between the two parts of the Republic.”
The 20th President of the United States, James A. Garfield (lasted only 100 Days) stated two weeks before he was assassinated in 1881, “Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce…and when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.”
Edmond James de Rothschild has a son named Maurice de Rothschild. (Adolf Hitler is really Maurice de Rothschild with fake beard and hair piece and carries out his father’s (Baron Abraham Edmond Benjamin James de Rothschild 1845 –1934) work. Since the war caused a sugar shortage, Maurice would have also been the candy man aka Willy Wanka and his top hat 🎩 and cain in his photos match the part).
In 1886, The French Rothschild bank, de Rothschild Frères, gains the Russian oil fields and establishes the Caspian and Black Sea Petroleum Company, which eventually becomes second largest global oil producer.
The Rothschilds become the biggest shareholder of the De Beers company in 1887, which included mining valuable stones in India and Africa. They achieved this by financing the South Africa’s Kimberley diamond mines.
Maurice de Rothschild’s future wife, Noémie Halphen, is born in 1888.
Around 1891, the Rothschilds they purchased the Reuters news agency, to gain control of the media.
In 1895, Edmond James de Rothschild visits Palestine and begins helping fund the first Jewish colonies located there.
In 1897, The Rothschilds organize their first meeting with the Zionist Congress in Munich. However, this meeting was re-arranged to take place in Basle, Switzerland on Aug. 29th, due to Jewish resistance. This meeting is supervised by Theodor Herzl, who would declare in his diaries, “It is essential that the sufferings of Jews….become worse….this will assist in realization of our plans….I have an excellent idea….I shall induce anti-Semites to liquidate Jewish wealth….The anti-Semites will assist us thereby in that they will strengthen the persecution and oppression of Jews. The anti-Semites shall be our best friends.”
Herzl was elected to be the President of the Zionist Organization. The Zionist society adopted the Red Rothschild Hexagram Sign that Amschel Moses Rothschild placed on his house on Judengasse (Jewstreet), on their Zionist flag. This hexagram sign would end up on the flag of Israel 🇮🇱 51 years later.
The Rothschilds help fund Edward Henry Harriman. This allowed him to become the director of the Union Pacific Railroad which would eventually also gain control of the Southern Pacific Railroad.
In 1901 the Jewish colonies established by Edmond James de Rothschild in Palestine. They send him a delegation which states, “If you wish to save the Yishuv (The Jewish colonies) first take your hands from it, and…for once permit the colonists to have the possibility of correcting for themselves what needs correcting.”
Edmond James de Rothschild does not react very well to these news and states, “I created the Yishuv, I alone. Therefore no men, neither colonists nor organisations have the right to interfere in my plans.”
The M. A. von Rothschild und Söhne banking house in Frankfurt, Deutschland 🇩🇪, closes because there was no male Rothschild heir to take over the bank.
The Jewish Encyclopaedia (Vol. 2, p.497) states, “It is a somewhat curious sequel to the attempt to set up a Catholic competitor to the Rothschilds that at the present time the latter are the guardians of the papal treasure.”
In 1906, the Rothschilds insisted that the land was experiencing increased instability, while the Rockefellers were simultaneously becoming a rising competition. This was a lie, because in reality, the Rockefellers were the offspring of the Rothschilds through a female lineage. They owned Standard Oil, which is why they sold their Caspian Black Sea and Caspian Petroleum to Shell and Royal Dutch.
John F. Hylan, then mayor of New York, states in 1911, “The real menace of our republic is the invisible government which, like a giant octopus, sprawls its slimy length over our city, state and nation. At the head is a small group of banking houses, generally referred to as international bankers.”
George R. Conroy talks about the Rothschild banker Jacob Schiff in the December 1912 issue of, “Truth,” magazine, and states, “Mr Schiff is head of the great private banking house of Kuhn, Loeb, and co, which represents the Rothschilds interests on this side of the Atlantic. He has been described as financial strategist and has been for years the financial minister of the great impersonal power known as Standard Oil. He was hand in glove with the Harrimans, the Goulds, and the Rockefellers in all their railroad enterprises and has become the dominant power in the railroad and financial power of America.”
The Anti Defamation League (ADL) is established in the United States by the Rothschilds in 1913, which labeled anyone who challenged the Global Elite as “anti-Semitic.” This is also the year that they founded their last central bank which still exists today, the Federal Reserve.
After the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was passed/singed into law on December 23, by the 28th President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson, which created the Federal Reserve Banking System, Congressman Charles Lindbergh, stated, “The Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs this Bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be legalized…….The greatest crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill.”
The Federal Reserve System is a private Organization also known as a charity and is Illegal!!! They also do not publish their accounts*
By the year 1914 the Rothschilds have gained control of multiple European media agencies, which included, Havas (est. 1835) in France, Wolff (est. 1849) in Germany, and Reuters (est. 1851) in England. Wolff News company was used to systematically shape German individuals into believing war the way to go. Since the Rothschilds owned the media now, they were seldomly reported on.
Since, Tsar Alexander II choose to side with President Lincoln in the Cvil War in 1864, he and his whole family in Russia were executed in 1917 by an order of the Rothschilds. They kill the entire family to show the world what happens when you try to cross them.
In 1919, Baron Edmond de Rothschild, the boss, hosted the Versailles peace convention, which meets after the end of World War I to determine what must be repaid by the Germans to the victors. In this conference, it is also officially declared that Israel would be considered a Jewish homeland. Control of Palestine was handed to Britain, which the Rothschilds ruled.
The Times of London report on March 29th on the Bolsheviks in Russia stating, “One of the curious features of the Bolshevist movement is the high percentage of non Russian elements among its leaders. Of the twenty or thirty commissaries, or leaders, who provide the central machinery of the Bolshevist movement, not less than 75% were Jews.”
The Rothschilds were not happy with the Russians because they did not want them to establish their own central bank within their community. So they hired Jewish agents to spy on Russia and plant seeds in the heads of the Russian community about a revolution that would assist the common man by promoting rebellion through riots. The Rothschilds strategically set this up to conquer Russia, so they could establish their own bank there.
The International Edition of the Jewish Post (January 1991)verifies that Vladimir Lenin was Jewish and was caught on record declaring, “The establishment of a central bank is 90% of communizing a nation.”
These Jewish Bolsheviks, funded by the Rothschild would end up would end up slaughtering 60 million Non-Jews and Christians in a Soviet controlled region.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, an author, confirms in his writings, “Gulag Archipelago, Vol 2,” that the Zionist Jews planned and executed the Soviet concentration camp structure. Where millions of Non-Jews and Christians died. On page 79 of his book he mentions the names of the leaders who were behind these camps. This included the Zionist Jews, Yakov Rappoport, Aron Solts, Naftaly Frenkel, Lazar Kogan, Genrikh Yagoda, and Matvei Berman.
The role of adjusting the daily global gold prices is permanently handed over to M. Rothschild & Sons’. Every day around 1100 hours this change took place in the City of London offices, in the same room, until 2004.
N. M. Rothschild & Sons banking house invests in the Underground Electric Railways Company of London Ltd in 1926 giving them total control of the London railway transport system.
Maurice de Rothschild son, Edmond de Rothschild is also born in 1926.
By 1933, the Rothschilds controlled the supply machines of IBM, which produced punch cards (used to input data into the first computers), which allowed the Nazis to organize and identify the Jewish individuals and kept track of their confiscated property and eventual extermination.
The Swiss bank secrecy laws are altered in 1934, making it a violation for any bank employee to breach the bank secrecy. This was arranged by the Rothschilds to prepare for World War II, where again, they would back both sides.
The Austrian bank in Vienna, S. M. von Rothschild und Söhne, closed in 1938 after the Nazi settlement of Austria.
The biggest producer of steel Germany and preeminent manufacturer of chemicals for the world was a company called, I.G. Farben, who in 1939, suddenly ramped up its production in order to equip Germany for World War II. The Rothschilds controlled I.G. Farben, who also produced the Zyklon B gas used to exterminate the Jewish population. The Rothschilds also used the Jews and other people in the concentration camps for slave labor.
World War II begins in 1939.
The book, “Inside The Gestapo,” written by Hansjurgen Koehler in 1940, mentions Adolf Hitler’s grandmother, Maria Anna Schicklgruber, and states, “A little servant girl…….came to Vienna and became a domestic servant…….at the Rothschild mansion…….and Hitler’s unknown grandfather must be probably looked for in this magnificent house.”
In Walter Langer book, “The Mind Of Hitler,” he supports this statement by writing, “Adolf’s father, Alois Hitler, was the illegitimate son of Maria Anna Schicklgruber…….Maria Anna Schicklgruber was living in Vienna at the time she conceived. At that time she was employed as a servant in the home of Baron Rothschild. As soon as the family discovered her pregnancy she was sent back home…….where Alois was born.”
Prescott Bush was the father of George Herbert Walker Bush and the grandfather of George W. Bush, both future presidents. He helped finance Hitler from America. Due to his funding, his organization was seized in the, “Trading With The Enemy Act of 1942.”
World War II ends in 1945. It is also noted that the I.G. Farben companies only sustained 15% damage, concluding that they were not a target in the bombing of Germany. Any information connecting Western aid to Hitler is censored through the Nazi War Crimes investigation held at the end of World War II by the tribunals.
In Spring of 1948, the 33rd President of the United States Harry S. Truman (1945 – 1953) is bribed with $2,000,000 by the Rothschilds to acknowledge Israel (Rothschild owned) as a Jewish sovereign state in Palestine. The United States is the first nation to recognize it and the new flag is soon revealed. The new Israel flag depicted a blue hexagram on it, which was exactly like the red Rothschild hexagram, found on Amschel Moses Rothschild’s doorstep.
The Jewish knew the hexagram represented the “Moloch,” which was the biblical name of a Canaanite god relating to child sacrifice, by means of fire or war. The stone owl located at the Bohemian Grove worshipped by the elite is also named Moloch and Astaroth (Lord Treasurer of Hell). The hexagram also symbolized Saturn, which has been identified as the mystical name for “Satan.” This would mean that anyone murdered in the name of Israel was in reality an offering to Satan.
In 1953, the British Newfoundland Corporation Ltd was founded by N. M. Rothschild & Sons of London. They build a power plant to harness the electricity of the Hamilton (renamed Churchill) Falls (waterfall) on 60,000 square miles of terrain in Newfoundland, Canada.
Edmond de Rothschild established Compagnie Financiere, Paris, in 1955.
In the year 1962, the French banking house, de Rothschild Frères, founded Imétal, a shade company for all their mineral excavating shares.
A book called, “The Rothschilds”, written by Frederic Morton writes, “Though they control scores of industrial, commercial, mining and tourist corporations, not one bears the name Rothschild. Being private partnerships, the family houses never need to, and never do, publish a single public balance sheet, or any other report of their financial condition.”
This statement showcases the true mission of the Rothschilds. It was their objective to eradicate all competition and establish their own global monopoly.
On July 4th 1962, the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, held a speech at Independence Hall, in which he mocked the Declaration of Independence and states that the Constitution, “stressed not Independence but Interdependence.”
On June 4th 1963, the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, issues the Executive Order 11110, which returned the power to distribute currency back to the U.S. government, without having to go through the Federal Reserve possessed by the Rothschilds.
On November 22nd 1963, Kennedy was shot by the Rothschilds. Kennedy’s motive was to distribute and print American currency for the American people. Abraham Lincoln was assassinated for the same reason in 1865 by the Rothschilds.
The 37th President of the United States, Lyndon Baines Johnson, declares the Executive Order 11110 as void, the same day that Kennedy was killed.
La Compagnie Financière Edmond de Rothschild (LCF), in Switzerland, an investment bank with many associates is established by Edmond de Rothschild. Today, this bank is known as the Swiss Bank. Edmond marries Nadine and have a son together named, Benjamin de Rothschild.
In 1973, Gary Allen, wrote a book called, None Dare Call It Conspiracy, which states, “One major reason for the historical blackout on the role of the international bankers in political history is the Rothschilds were Jewish… ….The Jewish members of the conspiracy have used an organisation called The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) as an instrument to try and convince everyone that any mention of the Rothschilds and their allies is an attack on all Jews. In this way they have stifled almost all honest scholarship on international bankers and made the subject taboo within universities. Any individual or book exploring this subject is immediately attacked by hundreds of ADL communities all over the country. The ADL has never let the truth or logic interfere with its highly professional smear jobs… ….Actually, nobody has a right to be more angry at the Rothschild clique than their fellow Jews… ….The Rothschild empire helped finance Adolf Hitler.”
IBM was controlled by the Rothschilds through their employee, George J. Laurer. IBM creates the UPC (Universal Product Code) barcode, which is placed upon every product traded worldwide. IBM’s UPC barcode bears the mark of the beast, 666. Everything bought or sold is therefore the mark of the beast.
The Book of Revelation 13:17 says, “No man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
The Churchill Falls power plant in Newfoundland, Canada, is finished. N. M. Rothschild & Sons of London, adds an asset management company, called the Rothschild Private Management Limited, which traded globally. Today this company is know as Rothschild & Co.
In 1980, global privatization starts due to the Rothschilds plan to eventually seize power of all publicly held assets.
In 1981, a new bank called, Compagnie Européenne de Banque is established in France. The successor to this bank is Rothschild & Cie Banque (RCB), which eventually becomes a leading French investment company.
Eustace Mullins writes in 1985, “Who Owns The TV Networks,“ where he discloses that the Rothschilds control of the three dominant U.S. Networks at the time: NBC; CBS; and ABC.
Edmond de Rothschild sets up the World Conservation Bank in 1987, which transferred debts from third world countries into his bank. This allowed the Rothschilds to gain land as a return from these countries. The Rothschilds systematically designed this system to gain control of the third world countries, which were about 30% of the land on Earth.
The French and British Rothschilds declare in 1989, the launch of a new branch called, Rothschild GmbH, located in Frankfurt, Germany.
Former Federal Reserve Board Chairman, Paul A. Volker becomes the new Chairman of the banking firm, J. Rothschild, Wolfensohn and Co. in Europe in March 1992.
In 1995, Dr Kitty Little, a past atomic energy scientist, stated that the Rothschilds now possessed 80% of the uranium supplies globally, creating their nuclear power monopoly.
The European Central Bank is established in 1998 and is located in Frankfurt, Germany.
George W. Bush, becomes the 43rd President of the United States in the year 2000. Bush and his family declare they are the ancestors of the House of Plantagenet, whose linage stems from the Royal House of Judah.
The September 11th attack of the Twin Towers was arranged by the United States, Britain, and Israel, through an order received from the Rothschilds. It was their goal to gain security and control over the world, while simultaneously eliminating the liberty of people globally. The Rothschild’s terrorist attack allowed them to gain power over nations who refused to build a central Rothschild bank. One of these 7 nations was Afghanistan, (at the time a nation without R. Bank, but 9/11 changed this.)
They also will use the attacks to gain control of the few nations in the world who don’t allow Rothschild central banks and so less than one month after these attacks, US forces attack Afghanistan, one of only 7 nations in the world who don’t have a Rothschild controlled central bank.
A week before the twin tower attack, the Zim Shipping Company, located in the World Trade Centers, break their lease and leave behind their work station. No explanation has been given, but it is know that the Zim Shipping Company is half owned by the State of Israel, which is owned by The Rothschilds.
In the year 2003, Iraq (Ancient Babylon), is one of the last six nations left that who don’t have a central bank owned by the Rothschilds. The war in Iraq was mostly about robbing their water sources for Israel. Israel has always struggled for water. Water is rare in Israel, so to them water is far more valuable than the oil reserves, which happen to be the second largest oil reserves on the globe.
In 2006, the Edmond De Rothschild Banque a secondary branch of the Edmond De Rothschild bank in France, is the first foreign bank to acquire authorization of the China to enter China’s economic market.

  • We open with a preview of the upcoming 2002 Observer Awards. It's interesting because a lot of the categories don't seem to have obvious winners. Dave talks about past winners of the Wrestler of the Year award and how in the past, the winner was usually a mixture of in-ring ability, overall drawing power, and value they bring to their company. This year, the top contenders are all kinda iffy in different ways. Keiji Muto is an obvious contender because without him, AJPW would be dead. Instead, they've had a huge revival and are doing pretty good right now. But Muto's in-ring work hasn't been good this year due to his fragile knees. On the flip side, Kurt Angle has arguably been the best in-ring performer of the year, but he hasn't had any kind of title run or even been a top star in WWE this year. He only had one PPV main event (the three-way with Rock and Undertaker, and Angle was only thrown into that match so Undertaker wouldn't have to do the job). Being a world champion doesn't really mean much anywhere in the world anymore. AJPW's Triple Crown title is the only one of any relevance that hasn't been passed around and devalued like a cheap whore. WWE's title was starting to matter more and the Rock/Lesnar title match at Summerslam felt like a big deal. But then a month later, they created a brand new world title out of thin air and literally handed it to Triple H, and that pretty much immediately killed any value the WWE title still had. Anyway, Dave lists the dozen or so obvious contenders for Wrestler of the Year from promotions around the world and gives his brief opinion.
  • Survivor Series is next week and WWE has never seemed more directionless. Big Show is challenging Lesnar for the title and they've done a good job of pushing Show the last couple of weeks, but prior to that, he was racking up quick TV losses against mid-carders like it was nothing so they've got their work cut out trying to rehab him. The reason for all this, of course, is Hogan refused to come back and put over Lesnar at Survivor Series, so they had to get Big Show ready quick as a last-minute replacement (it was between him and Chris Benoit. People like Heyman were pushing for Benoit but of course, Vince makes final decision and you know how that goes). As of right now, there's serious consideration to having Big Show win the title. Vince is wanting to push Lesnar as the top babyface of the company, since the crowd has been cheering him since Summerslam anyway. The obvious way to do that would be to have Heyman turn on Lesnar and align with a heel to cost him the belt. A Heyman/Benoit pairing obviously makes a lot of sense and would probably be great, but it's looking more likely that it will be Heyman/Big Show if they decide to pull the trigger at Survivor Series. As of now, Vince hasn't made a decision either way, but word is he's pretty much leaning to putting the belt on Big Show and having Lesnar do a face turn at the PPV next week. Others are obviously against it, with Gerald Brisco being the most vocal against it. Brisco wants to keep Heyman and Lesnar together and pushed the idea of Lesnar as an old-school champion who defends against both heels and babyfaces equally before building up to LesnaAngle at Wrestlemania. Michael Hayes pushed for Benoit to win the title at the December PPV if they're going to do the turn, figuring Benoit/Heyman would be a better pairing. As for Heyman himself, his idea was to simply have Lesnar beat him up and fire him to write him off TV and that way they turn Lesnar without him having to lose the title. But as always, this will probably be decided by Vince on the day of the show because there's no such thing as long-term booking in WWE anymore apparently (spoiler: Heyman turns on Lesnar and helps Big Show win the title. As always, Vince has his way).
  • ROH and CZW worked together to co-promote an independent double-header in Philadelphia this week and it was a big success. ROH drew its largest crowd to date (525 fans!) for a 5pm show. Immediately after, just down the road, 850 fans piled into the old ECW arena for CZW's show. There were issues though. ROH's show went an hour longer than planned, although no one complained because that last hour featured AJ Styles vs. American Dragon in a 4+ star match among other great bouts. Many long-time readers and ROH fans reported it as the best show in ROH history. Zero-1 tag team Shinjiro Otani and Masato Tanaka worked against Low-Ki and Steve Corino in another great match. Tommy Dreamer made an unannounced appearance. He was in town with WWE doing a house show and ROH had contacted WWE about using him because Dreamer had expressed interest. WWE allowed Dreamer to make the appearance so long as he didn't take any bumps. Dreamer gave a speech saying ROH is the evolution of ECW and made a joke about wrestling for another promotion. Fans booed the WWE hint and Dreamer laughed it off and said, "I know, but at least I get a check after wrestling the show." Samoa Joe, Paul London, Amazing Red, Christopher Daniels, and others were also on this show, which also featured CM Punk making his ROH debut. The CZW show was headlined by what was announced as Wifebeater's retirement match because he legitimately is going to go get shoulder surgery (he ends up being out of action for a year but of course, didn't really retire until 2006). Wifebeater won an I Quit No Ropes Barbed Wire weapons match after using a weed-eater on his opponent. And that's basically that.
WATCH: Wifebeater uses weed-eater on John Zandig
  • Dave previews the upcoming Ken Shamrock vs. Tito Ortiz fight at UFC 40, which is arguably the biggest fight in UFC history and the promotion is desperately hoping it does huge business. Dave expects it to do the biggest buyrate since UFC's heyday of the mid-90s. Shamrock is a good 11 years older and coming off a couple of losses and hasn't fought in UFC in 6 years, so on paper, this fight shouldn't be happening because Shamrock hasn't really earned it. But personalities and storylines are what make money and this is the fight everyone wants to see. Shamrock's legacy will be determined in this fight and it's the biggest of both men's careers. A lot of people think Shamrock is gonna get smoked. If Ortiz doesn't have a good night, he's going to get tagged as overrated. Shamrock is coming off the crazy fight with Don Frye in Japan and there's questions about how much that may have taken out of Shamrock. So there ya go. Chuck Liddell has signed a contract and is waiting in the wings to take on the winner.
  • This week's Raw was the lowest rated episode of the show since Dec. 15, 1997. And back then, they were facing head-to-head competition from Nitro. This time, nope. They got that rating all by themselves. And it's even worse because the rating dropped continuously throughout the show, meaning fans were losing interest in droves as the night went on. Needless to say, it's a disaster of a rating as WWE seems to have no idea how to stop the bleeding on Raw. Meanwhile, Smackdown went up from last week and continues to do fairly well, all things considered. I mean, everything in WWE is tanking right now, but Smackdown is holding its audience far better than Raw is. You take silver linings where you can find em, ya know?
  • Ultimo Dragon is easing back into wrestling following his recent comeback match. He's working some matches in Mexico soon and WWE reportedly offered him a $100,000 downside guarantee to start with them in 2003. Dragon has told people he's considering it (he does indeed end up in WWE next year).
  • AJPW is still pushing to try to get Hulk Hogan to work their upcoming Yokohama Arena show this week, but time is running out and it's almost certainly not going to happen. Anyway, AJPW and Hogan pretty much agreed on money, but haven't officially signed anything and I guess there's some other hold ups. They're now trying to get Hogan to work AJPW's upcoming Tokyo Dome show in January. This one could be a problem because WWE has shows in Tokyo just a week later and they sure would like Hogan to work them, so they might try to prevent that from happening, though they may be powerless to stop it. The deal with Hogan's contract is this: he's signed to WWE until the end of January. However, his contract called for a specific number of dates and Hogan has already worked all his required dates. So he's under the belief that he has already fulfilled his WWE obligations. So it's the kind of weird contract situation that a court would probably need to sort out if they ever decided to really fight about it. Anyway, in the meantime, Goldberg is also expected to work both those AJPW shows.
  • Keiji Muto reached out to Sting, Bam Bam Bigelow, and Vampiro all to come in and be his tag team partner in the upcoming AJPW tag tournament. But Sting and Bigelow both wanted too much money so that's not happening, plus Sting was already booked for WWA. Vampiro isn't happening either, but it's reportedly due to other issues not money related. So Muto still has no partner for now (ends up being Road Warrior Animal).
  • Kenta Kobashi saw a doctor who told him his recovery from all his knee surgeries has been miraculous. At one point a few months ago, Kobashi was told he had the knees of an 80 year old, but this doctor told him his rehab has improved his knees so much that he could probably wrestle another 10 years or so. Kobashi has said he no longer has any pain in his knees when he walks or wrestles and says he's stopped needing painkillers as well (sure enough, Kobashi goes on to wrestle for another decade or so and never really has any more major knee issues. I mean, they obviously still bothered him and by the end, seeing him walk to the ring was hard to watch, but he never had any more major knee surgeries that caused him to miss months of action or anything. Make no mistake though, his knees were still very fucked).
  • TJ Wilson is being brought into NJPW as the Stampede Kid. Wilson is considered an honorary member of the Hart family and is considered the best wrestler coming out of that area these days. With Dynamite Kid and Pegasus Kid (Benoit) coming from Calgary and making big names in Japan, the idea is for Stampede Kid to follow in their footsteps and be the hot new junior heavyweight star from Calgary (doesn't quite work out that way, but he ends up working tours for Japan regularly until 2005 or so).
  • CIMA luckily avoided injury in a car accident this week. He was driving through Kobe Japan when the tire of his Camero came off. It ended up bouncing through the air and crashed into a noodle shop, causing lots of damage, but CIMA ended up coming out of it ok. Never forget: /Tiresaretheenemy
  • The Winnipeg Sun published an article calling into question some of the claims in Roddy Piper's autobiography. Piper claims he was essentially a latchkey kid who spent his teenage years sleeping in the subway homeless and whatnot. In reality, Piper's father was the police superintendent in Winnipeg and Piper lived at home like any other teenager, he was not the homeless street bum he claims to have been. Then stuff about his college career where he spent 3 years there, played football, and was pretty much just a normal kid until he left town in 1976 to really pursue wrestling.
  • Hulk Hogan had an audition for the upcoming Superman movie (Going by the timing, this would likely be for "Superman: Flyby" which was a JJ Abrams script that Brett Ratner was supposed to direct, but the film gets mired in developmental hell. A million things change over the years and this eventually evolves into 2006's Superman Returns but of course, Hogan is nowhere to be found). Don't expect him to say anything negative about Vince McMahon in any upcoming media appearances either. Dave mentions that both Sean Waltman and Mick Foley had to sign non-disparagement clauses when they got their early releases so neither of them can shit-talk WWE publicly. Dave assumes Hogan still has a similar clause until February. Hogan is filming an MCI commercial with Terry Bradshaw and has appearances on the Today Show and other talk shows scheduled. Slim Jim also contacted Hogan about replacing Randy Savage as their new pitchman, which probably isn't gonna help their relationship.
  • Randy Savage's ex-girlfriend Stephanie Bellars, who worked in WCW with him as Gorgeous George, is talking about writing a tell-all book about her relationship with Savage. The two broke up on really bad terms and Savage, who owns the name Gorgeous George, fought to legally prevent her from using that name when she returned to her stripping career.
  • Scott Steiner was booked to work the upcoming WWA tour in Europe but when he signed his WWE deal, they didn't want him doing it. So WWE started negotiating with WWA promoter Andrew McManus and he let Steiner out of his contract. McManus was apparently telling people he did WWE a favor with the expectation that Vince will owe him one now. Dave pities the fool who falls for that one.
  • Things are still basically the same in TNA. Now that the financial worries are out of the way, Jerry Jarrett remains in power over creative. Vince Russo is still technically employed but for the second week in a row, he didn't come to the tapings. Panda Energy exec Chris Sobol is making business decisions and right now, he appears to be sticking with Jarrett, though others say Russo is still pushing for power.
  • WWE's battle with the World Wildlife Foundation isn't over. Although they lost the court case and were forced to change their name, it now has to be determined how much WWE will be forced to pay in damages. The Wildlife Fund is asking for millions of dollars, which WWE has responded to calling offensive and unprecedented. But the Wildlife Fund claims extensive damage was caused to their brand name by WWE using the "WWF" initials illegally. So that still has to be settled and will almost certainly cost WWE a pretty penny.
  • Kenton Jenkins, the general manager of WWE's The World restaurant in Times Square, was arrested on grand larceny charges. WWE began investigating Jenkins after realizing some paperwork and money transfers weren't making sense. Once they realized what was up, they contacted the police and they opened their own investigation and arrested him (this was basically the last straw, WWE finally pulls the plug on this restaurant a few months after this).
  • Notes from Raw: the most notable thing was that there was zero mention or reference to the Eric Bischoff/Stephanie McMahon kiss angle, leading Dave to assume the angle has been dropped and won't be leading anywhere. Gee, great. Shawn Michaels cut a promo and came across as an out-of-touch relic from the mid-90s. He talked about how he debuted the ladder match, the Hell in a Cell match, and the Iron Man match and he won all of them. Dave disputes the iron man match claim (Bret Hart had 2 of them on WWE house shows prior to the famous Bret/Shawn one). As for the ladder match, the first one was Bret/Shawn in 1992 which Bret won. Even the first famous Shawn/Razor match....Shawn didn't win that either. But whatever. Not much else of note. It was an average show, nothing great, nothing offensive, and did a terrible rating.
  • Notes from Smackdown: it was highlighted by a 4-star Angle/Benoit vs. Mysterio/Edge match that took up 1/4 of the show and needless to say, Dave is here for that shit. Everything else on the show was pretty good too, except for Al Wilson proposing to Dawn Marie in one of the worst segments in the history of Smackdown. But it was made okay because even the announcers buried it and in the end, it was so bad that it was perversely funny. John Cena is doing a gimmick where he's basically playing a Vanilla Ice white rapper. Dave doesn't seem too into it yet.
  • IWGP champ Yuji Nagata was at the Kurt Angle Classic amateur wrestling event hosted by Angle in conjunction with some amateur wrestling shit. Brock Lesnar was there as well. The Japanese newspapers ran lots of photos of Nagata with Lesnar and Angle together. Also, Nagata challenged Lesnar to face him in a Tokyo Dome match. Lesnar said it would be politically impossible right now, but he would love to face Nagata at some point in his career. Nagata was there because his brother, Katsuhiko Nagata, was competing (I can't find any of these newspaper photos).
  • Speaking of, Kurt Angle did an interview there and pretty much closed the book on going for the Olympics again. He said the last time they were in Colorado Springs, he went to the Olympic training center there and worked out with the current top amateur wrestlers who are already training for the Olympics. And after 6 years away from the sport, he realized he's not cut out to compete with that level of competition anymore. He said it was amazing how much better the wrestlers have progressed since 1996, with all these new techniques and styles he's never seen before, and said he felt like a fossil. He also said his back and knee are pretty messed up and he has until January to decide, but right now, it's a no. He was also asked about doing a moonsault off the cage recently on Smackdown and said it was crazy and reckless and he'd never do it again (lol). He also hinted strongly that he'll be facing Lesnar at Wrestlemania, which has been expected for months already.
  • Perry Saturn was released this week. The decision was made while he was out injured. He'll be paid through January when his contract expires since it was a guaranteed deal. This kinda sucks for him because when Saturn, Benoit, Malenko, and Guerrero all jumped ship from WCW, Vince wanted them to sign 5 year deals. But they all chose to sign 3 year deals instead, figuring the business would still be hot and in 3 years, they could negotiate even bigger deals. But WCW died, Japan collapsed, and now Saturn is probably really wishing they'd taken the 5 year offer. DDP was also officially released from his contract. He really is retired for medical reasons and since he's not going to wrestle anywhere else and wants to pursue acting, they mutually agreed to part ways.
  • Nothing really new on the Steve Austin front. He has been telling friends he doesn't know what his future holds. He says he thinks he's currently suspended by WWE, but he doesn't know because he hasn't called to ask and they haven't called him to tell him (Punk said the same thing in the Colt podcast if I recall. Basically that no one ever reached out to him to let him know his official status). Basically, there's just no communication between either side right now. Within WWE, creative is still moving forward without even discussing plans for him. But others quietly feel like it's only a matter of time. With business being down and Wrestlemania on the horizon, they figure Vince will make the call any day now (soon, yeah).
  • Boston Globe ran a story on WWE this week in which a reporter spent the day with Vince McMahon on a Monday before Raw. It detailed the production meetings as well as a post-show meeting in which Vince critiqued the show. This part was noted to be off the record and details weren't published, and you gotta figure it's because Vince probably shat all over people. Overall, Vince wasn't happy with the show and they detailed some of the reasons why.
  • Triple H was interviewed by a Cincinnati paper and was asked why he's the champion on Raw. His response was that he's the best part of the show and from a creative standpoint, he's the best they've got and a lot of the newer stars haven't reached his level yet. Needless to say, some guys were rubbed the wrong way. Dave actually doesn't really disagree though. Triple H is indeed probably the most well-rounded, established star on the roster. But he's also the guy who is dating the boss's daughter, acts as an agent backstage, sits in on creative meetings with management, etc. So comments like that tend to upset a lot of people in the locker room, whether true or not.
  • Various WWE notes: Nathan Jones hasn't signed a contract yet but he impressed during his tryouts so he'll probably get one soon. But they have to offer him more than the usual developmental deal because he can make more money working overseas. But he's not good enough for the main roster yet, so it's tricky. WWE wouldn't allow Spanky (Brian Kendrick) to fulfill his commitments to ROH so that's why he didn't work the recent ROH show despite being advertised. WWE has started selling "I love my Testicles" shirts for Test. Bradshaw did an interview saying he wants to retire in 5 more years and coach high school football. Tajiri is writing a book about his life in WWE, but it will be in Japanese and released there (this book was indeed released, by WWE in fact, but only in Japan and only in Japanese. I'd love to get an English translation of this).
BUY: Tajiri - ザ ジャパニーズバズソ
  • In OVW, they've been doing a tournament where one OVW star will earn a spot in the 2003 Royal Rumble. It was won by Damaja and Dave thinks the crowd is going to be awfully confused and quiet when he comes out for his Rumble spot (never happens. Not sure what changes, but no OVW guys in the match. Sucks for Damaja).

2020.11.24 10:49 _Revelator_ Clarkson's Columns: The Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 4Matic+ Review & Jezza's Problem with "The Crown"

I was having a field day until I came to a fieldThe Clarkson Review: Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 4Matic+
By Jeremy Clarkson (Sunday Times, Nov. 22)
The Audi Q5. The BMW X3. The Lexus UX. The Porsche Cayenne. I pretty much loathe them all. They're just saloons in platform shoes, pointlessly tall, pointlessly heavy and, as often as not, equipped with pointless off-road abilities that will never be used.
They are, to the world of cars, what those £19.99 gardening trousers you see advertised at the back of The Daily Telegraph are to the world of fashion. Or what a petrol station pork pie is to the world of cuisine. They're low-ambition transport modules for people who just want four wheels and a seat.
So I really wasn't expecting to enjoy my week in the Mercedes GLE. Especially as it arrived with AMG badging. Because here is a massive seven-seater that is trying to be something it cannot be: sporty. You can put go-faster stripes on a wellington boot but it will still be a wellington boot.
There's more, I'm afraid. Instead of a conventional dashboard you get what airline pilots call a "glass cockpit". I know why Mercedes has gone down this route: money. Because if you take a normal dashboard apart, there are thousands of pieces: needles, springs, dials, slider controls, knobs, tiny little screws, hundreds of washers and a million miles of wiring. Whereas with glass all that's gone. And that's a big saving.
There are two big screens with options you can tailor from a menu that's even longer than the breakfast choices in an American diner. On and on you go, choosing whether you want a proper speedo or a digital readout, and then what other sort of information you'd like. I found one set-up that made no sense at all — it was like staring into the warp core of the Starship Enterprise. And that's before I started playing with the colour of the interior lighting.
I pretty much loathe all this too, because I don't trust it. I'm building a house at the moment and spend most of my life trying to explain to the project manager and the architect that I don't want a bath that can be run from my iPad when I'm in Milan, or a cooker that lowers itself into position from the ceiling and is operated by ground-sourced heat. I don't even want dimmer switches. I especially don't want electrically operated garage doors, because when grit or gravel gets into the runners — and it will — an electric motor cannot cope. Whereas human heft can.
The thermostat is also a big bugbear, because I don't want a digital menu on the control panel. I don't want 5,000 options. I just want a knob made from brass or Bakelite that turns the system on and turns it off. Because that's the thing with central heating: you either want it or you don't. And mostly I don't, because it's cheaper to wear a jumper.
I also don't want Sonos. I'm aware that everyone else in the world can make their phones talk to some invisible record player in the sky, but I can't. Which is why I have bought a table instead, on which my deck and amp can sit. The speakers will not be installed in the ceiling, because then they'll be too small. Speakers should be big. And made from wood.
I have a similar view about gearlevers. I also reckon they should stick out of the centre console and not, as you find on the Mercedes, be operated by a stalk on the steering column. Because that suggests the gears are being controlled not mechanically but by electricity. And as anyone with a wifi router knows, electricity cannot be trusted. Certainly, if the wifi in my cottage were put in charge of the gearbox in my car, it would wait for me to pull on to the M40 and then, without warning, select reverse.
It had a row the other day with my television, which meant some poor man had to come out on a Sunday morning and reset my whole Sky system. Which means I've now lost everything I've ever recorded. That never happened when we had VHS tapes.
I'm getting sidetracked here and I'm sorry. I'm also sorry to have been so prejudiced about the Mercedes, because, actually, its glass screen system works very well. Once I'd selected green interior lighting and found an option that let me have a rev counter and a proper speedo, it was great. And here's the next surprise. So is the car.
You might imagine that, because it's called a 53 4Matic+, it has a 5.3-litre engine. In fact you get a turbocharged and super smooth 3-litre, in-line straight six that dispatches 429 horsepowers through a nine-speed gearbox to all four wheels. This is a fast car, and not just in a straight line. Perhaps because it's lighter than you might expect — it's only 2.3 tons — you can actually hustle it.
My only real complaint — apart from the fact it would be better still if it weren't so tall — is that on a motorway the big quad exhaust system never really stops shouting.
That aside, it's a relaxing place to be. The seats are big and comfortable, the ride is smooth. I love the twin panic handles on either side of the transmission tunnel. In a Lamborghini Miura you only get one. I also like the look of the dash. And I especially like the layout further back, where there's lots of legroom. Right at the very back, in the boot, there are two diddy seats that can be lifted from the floor, and even when they're raised you still get enough space for a dog, as long as it's quite thin.
Halfway through the week, as it began to dawn on me that I was actually enjoying an SUV, I went to check on the price. And I was a bit startled to learn the version I drove costs just over £81,000. Which is significantly cheaper than many Range Rovers.
I was midway through fermenting a thought that it was the better car when I had to use it for a spot of light farm work.
And immediately the downside of that spirited on-road performance became clear. It's too stiff, which means that on a track it's too jiggly. Driving against the furrows in a field of stubble was like rollerskating over a corrugated iron roof. I'm surprised my eyes didn't fall out.
I guess Mercedes would say it has the G-class for people who want to do estate management or shooting and that the GLE is more of a fancy school-run car, in the mould of a Volvo XC90. Which means you face a tough choice.
I don't particularly like driving the Volvo, or being in it, or looking at it, but my children were brought up in a selection of them because in the UK not a single person has died in one as a result of a collision with another car. That's a powerful argument.

Here's a blockbuster idea: a lie-filled show about a TV boss's family. I bet the Queen would watch
By Jeremy Clarkson (Sunday Times, Nov. 22)
I am three-quarters of the way through the latest series of The Crown, which is being shown on Netflix, and so far I've seen the funeral of Lord Mountbatten, overlaid with the soundtrack from an IRA statement on British oppression in Ireland. I've watched Princess Diana vomiting noisily and often. And I've heard Michael Fagan, the man who broke into Buckingham Palace, explaining to the Queen how so many lives were being ruined by Mrs Thatcher's policies.
Meanwhile, the Queen Mother has not yet uttered a single pleasant or kind word, Prince Andrew has told his mother about what his latest girlfriend did with an aeroplane joystick, Prince Charles has been perpetually wet and useless and Mrs Thatcher has explained she doesn't like women, not even her own daughter. As soap operas go, it's up there with Dallas, and it's given me an idea.
I'm thinking of writing a TV drama series based on Reed Hastings, the American billionaire who co-founded Netflix and who, therefore, is responsible for The Crown being made and shown.
We shall look at his mother, Joan, who was descended from Edward I, and we shall speculate on why she turned her back on the debutante society in which she was brought up, and why she raised her children to hate it as well.
We shall delve, also, into why Reed and his wife, Patricia, needed marriage counselling all those years ago. And we shall intercut a scene of him taking delivery of his first Porsche with shots of poverty, and hopelessness in Detroit.
I know absolutely nothing about his two children but that won't stop me writing scenes in which they appear at pro-Trump rallies, brandishing AR-15 assault rifles. Nor do I know why Mr Hastings donates so much money to schoolchildren. But I'll have a couple of scenes of him hanging around the school gates anyway.
And we'll see how he likes it. Not much, is my guess. He would almost certainly sue, and if my defence were, "Well, it all happened that way in my head," I'd lose the case and look like a bit of an idiot.
I simply cannot enjoy this series of The Crown at all because I keep thinking that the made-up scenes could be watched by Harry and William, or Charles or Camilla, or Carol Thatcher, and even if they are not watching — which seems likely — they will know that wherever they go, the people they meet will have, for sure.
But truth be told, I've dished it out. A few years ago, I made a wartime documentary about a doomed Arctic convoy called PQ-15 and I was forced, at the end, to take sides and point a finger at Sir Dudley Pound, the first sea lord, who, I thought, was to blame for the debacle.
I hated doing this because I knew that Pound's grandchildren could be watching as I calmly offered an opinion that their beloved grandad had been responsible for the deaths of 153 merchant sailors. It hurt.
Only last week, I had the same wretched sense of toe-curling embarrassment when I read a story about the "Monuments Men", the soldiers who were charged, as the Second World War ended, with trying to save all of Europe's precious art. Six years ago, George Clooney made a blockbuster film about these wise and brave Americans, who had dodged sniper fire and shelling as they tried to ensure that Europe's culture wasn't wiped out or looted or stolen by the advancing forces of Stalin.
Clooney said later that "almost" all of the scenes in the movie had happened, and that these guys really did save works by Caravaggio, Botticelli, Rubens and Michelangelo. So it was all jolly noble and I'm sure the descendants of these men felt proud as they left the cinema.
But now comes news that alongside the American Monuments Men were — surprise, surprise — a group of Englishmen called, rather predictably, Hilary, Humphrey, Roger and Harry. I think we're not talking Stallone and Schwarzenegger here. They had all studied classics or history, and while other soldiers were doing PE or target practice, they had been in a basement, learning how to restore documents.
And it turns out they had no time for their gung-ho transatlantic counterparts. In a recently unearthed letter, Humphrey said: "It appears that the American archivist can flourish like a lone palm in the desert — without a trace of cultural background."
It's wonderful, of course, that their efforts have been uncovered, and great work from the historians, but I do feel for the descendants of the Yanks who have basically been told that Grandad was so thick he accidentally wiped his arse on a first edition of the Bible.
There was another story last week about why the dinosaurs grew to be so tall. It was so they could reach the leaves of the conifers that were among the few food sources to have survived the global warming back then. Obviously it was written by silly lefties who feel the need to blame climate change for everything, but it doesn't matter, because the descendants of the dinosaurs — the red kites and the buzzards — won't really care. It all happened so long ago.
It's the same story with King Harold. If you think you have a case, go ahead and suggest he was late to the Battle of Hastings because he'd been on a wifeswapping weekend. Likewise, you can make a movie suggesting Queen Anne liked a spot of sapphic activity at night and kept a fleet of rabbits in her bedroom because, again, time has passed.
But I do think that when you are documenting events that happened in the 1980s, you do need to be sure of your facts, and your moral compass, before you allow a first assistant director to shout "action".

2020.11.23 21:54 JasonGreen3 Australian Kelly Cahill's UFO abduction story still stirs passions

Australian Kelly Cahill's UFO abduction story still stirs passions
On August 7, 1993, Gippsland woman Kelly Cahill saw a UFO and beings from another world. As detailed in her in 1996 book Encounter, Ms Cahill's case had all the hallmarks of the classic alien abduction story of the era — lost time, strange spaceships, bright lights, inhuman creatures and inexplicable marks on her body.
But her story had something other alien visitations didn't — independent witnesses who could potentially back up her story. Along with her then-husband Andrew, who was in the car with her on that fateful night on Melbourne's south-eastern fringes, there were reportedly four other people in two separate cars who would be able to verify her otherworldly claims. Because of its multiple witnesses, the incident was hailed as the "holy grail" of alien abduction stories by UFO researchers and enthusiasts.
Kelly Cahill, as she appeared in her 1996 book Encounter
It was the one with the potential to provide definitive proof, once and for all, that the truth was out there. Cult TV show The X-Files even referenced the case in an episode. But 27 years on, the truth about the so-called Eumemmering Creek encounter is anything but clear. A detailed report into the claims was never released, the other witnesses never came forward publicly and Ms Cahill disappeared from public view.
So was her 'encounter' a missed opportunity, or just another UFO hoax?
'Hooded figures with glowing eyes'According to Ms Cahill, she and her then-husband Andrew were driving along the Belgrave-Hallam Road in Narre Warren on that fateful winter's night in 1993. They were en route to a friend's house when Ms Cahill saw in a paddock a row of five or six large orange lights on a 'distinct circular shape . . . like nothing I had ever seen before', she wrote in her book.
When they arrived at their destination, her husband and friends, and eventually even Ms Cahill, laughed it off. But about midnight, driving home on the same road, she and Andrew apparently saw what she believed to be the same lights 'hanging above the road'. "I could then see that the orange lights were really windows . . . I could make out figures standing behind the portals," Ms Cahill wrote. The object flew off 'at incredible speed', but soon after they saw it again in a paddock on the side of the road, Ms Cahill said.
After that, Ms Cahill's memory blanked, 'like a cut to scene in a film', and their car had travelled several hundred metres down the road without them knowing.

In the days and weeks that followed, she claimed to find strange marks on her body, including a small triangular wound below her bellybutton, and began experiencing stomach pains and night 'visitations' from tall black-hooded figures with lightly glowing red eyes. Through hypnosis, she said, she was able to unlock her 'missing time'. Her husband had pulled over and they'd got out of the car to get a better look at the brightly lit object in the paddock. Further back up the road, another car had parked, its occupants standing at the edge of the field.

A tall thin figure appeared in front of the object and Ms Cahill heard in her mind its thoughts: "Let's kill them". More beings appeared, unleashing an energy force that knocked Ms Cahill to the ground as she screamed to her husband: "They've got no souls! They're evil! They're going to kill us!" And that's where her recollections end, but not the story.
The investigation begins
Sydney-based researcher Bill Chalker, of the UFO Investigation Centre, was one of the first people Ms Cahill contacted after that night.

Bill Chalker called Kelly Cahill's case \"an extraordinary lost opportunity\"
Mr Chalker immediately thought it 'a fairly important case', but one that 'required a lot of feet on the ground and a lot of intensive field investigations'. Mr Chalker alerted a loosely connected Melbourne group of paranormal investigators called Phenomena Research Australia [PRA], led by then-director John Auchettl.Mr Auchettl interviewed Ms Cahill many times and examined the scene of the alleged sighting near Eumemmering Creek. He and the PRA placed an ad in local newspapers in an effort to find the occupants of the second car.
Remarkably, they got a response and Mr Auchettl said the stories from the second car were identical to Ms Cahill's but went even further, detailing experiences inside the mystery craft where they were strapped to a table and examined by the beings. According to the PRA, the women had the same triangular wounds near their navels, as well as other strange marks. There was even talk of a third car driven by a local lawyer, PRA discovered, whose story also lined up. The researchers began prepping an exhaustive 300-page report that promised to reveal the truth.
Burning bright in the nightEventually the media got wind of the story and Ms Cahill appeared on TV current affairs show Today Tonight. Her story also ran in newspapers and magazines. By 1996, she was a big name on the UFO circuit — a series of talks and conferences that thrived — and, with every appearance, Ms Cahill unveiled new tidbits from PRA's forthcoming report.
https://preview.redd.it/tuqcmtuqy1161.png?width=365&format=png&auto=webp&s=7280d5d7d8c99c8a891d392b6d2b0754b5cd648b
'Worthy of release'
Fast forward to 2020 and there's still no report. Aside from a brief moment of interest in 2016 when Ms Cahill's case was name-dropped on The X-Files reboot by Fox Mulder himself, the 'Eumemmering Creek encounter' has gone down in infamy.
Remarkably, 27 years on from the event, John Auchettl told the ABC it was possible the PRA's report might still come out, but not soon. "The case is so good," Mr Auchettl said. "[Our report] is worthy of release. "[But] we won't release it [now] because once we release our report, then we become the focus of the case. "Our idea was we would release the report and then bring [the witnesses] out. "At the moment we don't know where they are so if we release anything all the focus is going to be on us. We'll get hammered."
He said the original 300-page report was whittled down to an unusable '100 pages or so' when the witnesses, including Ms Cahill and her ex-husband, began to ask for information to be taken out and refused to allow the publication of medical and psychological reports they claimed backed up their stories. Mr Auchettl also said that when Ms Cahill went to the media and other UFO groups in early 1994, it "muddied" the case.
'An extraordinary lost opportunity'
Mr Chalker still believes Ms Cahill's story but regrets handballing the case to PRA in 1993. "There was a lot of bad blood that's passed between them and me as a consequence of their role in this case," Mr Chalker told the ABC. "This was an extraordinary lost opportunity. I've seen a lot of information that suggests [the investigation] was carried out . . . but unfortunately they didn't [want] to share the material."
He said he 'wasn't that impressed with the explanations that were put forward' by PRA for withholding the report. Mr Chalker wrote in his blog in 2016 he was 'determined never to pass a case onto them again'. "It was frustrating that such a promising case was caught up in a situation where the group involved chose not to make their data available," he wrote.
Mr Chalker said UFO enthusiasts had a right to feel disappointed by PRA keeping their research secret. "I can understand the reaction from various members of the UFO research community," he said.
As for Kelly Cahill, she dropped off the radar around 1998. Mr Chalker said that in the early 2000s she called him and sent him all her files — 'three large archival boxes' — and left the country. She is now back in the Latrobe Valley in Gippsland, the same region she was living in when her 'encounter' happened in 1993. The ABC approached Ms Cahill for an interview but she did not respond. "She really wanted to take a low profile and put all this behind her," Mr Chalker said. "She spent a lot of time trying to raise the profile of this episode and wanted to have the other [witnesses] come out as well.
"When it ultimately became pretty clear that she was going to be the only one that was going to go public on this, that's when she felt less confident about being the constant contact point on this case, particularly when [PRA] didn't back her up in terms of having the availability of all the case material that went with it."

2020.11.23 15:44 cornbread36 What the Giants have in the Roster for the future

The Athletic

Despite inexplicably being in the playoff race, the 3-7 Giants aren’t losing sight of the big picture. First-year head coach Joe Judge is focused on building a team that can be a legitimate contender annually.
“When I look at this team long-term and I have a vision for this team, I know where this team is going to go,” Judge said recently. “I believe we’re fully on track and I’m proud of all the players and the way they work. The culture we’re building, the foundation we’re laying right now, I see improvement across the board from all the players on a daily basis. To me, there is always a big picture perspective you’ve got to keep in mind … When you look at the players we’re building with, I see a lot of progress and I see us moving in the right direction.”
Judge is getting a lot out of the players on this roster, but there will need to be an infusion of talent to reach the next level. Here’s a position-by-position breakdown of the pieces in place for the future. (This exercise is done under the assumption that general manager Dave Gettleman will be back for a fourth season since it’s impossible to predict how another GM would handle the roster.) The last year of a player’s contract is in parenthesis. Free agents are unrestricted unless noted.
QUARTERBACKS: 1
The Giants hope Daniel Jones will be their quarterback for the next decade-plus. But a rocky second season has raised some doubts about his future.
• Daniel Jones (2022): The Giants don’t want to start over with another quarterback so soon after taking Jones with the sixth pick in the draft. He’s played better recently after a rough start to the season, but he hasn’t made the leap in Year 2 to definitively state that he’s a franchise quarterback. The picture should be clearer after the next six weeks.
• Free agents: Colt McCoy, Clayton Thorson. The Giants brought McCoy in to serve as a veteran sounding board for Jones who can start in a pinch. Jones has stayed healthy, so McCoy’s role has been exclusively behind the scenes. He could return for another season in an effort to establish some continuity for Jones.
RUNNING BACKS: 2
The Giants were built around Barkley, but he’s out for the season after tearing his ACL in Week 2. The injury likely delayed an inevitable monster extension this offseason, giving both sides another year to determine the long-term fit.
• Saquon Barkley (2021): No one can predict how Barkley will recover from the torn ACL, but history suggests the physical freak will attack his rehab and be ready for next season. The team will want to see Barkley return to form, while the 23-year-old can boost his value with a strong 2021 season. The Giants assuredly will exercise Barkley’s fifth-year option for 2022 this offseason.
• Eli Penny (2021): Penny has a modest $990,000 cap hit in 2021. The Giants can retain the fullback/core special teamer who is well-liked within the organization while adding cheap competition in the offseason.
• Free agents: Wayne Gallman, Devonta Freeman, Dion Lewis, Alfred Morris, Taquan Mizzell (RFA)*, Sandro Platzgummer (ERFA)**. The importance of having quality backups behind Barkley has been reinforced this season. Gallman, Freeman and Morris have been serviceable replacements. Gallman is the youngest of that group and therefore the most viable to keep, but he may seek a fresh start elsewhere. Lewis has satisfactorily filled his role as a third-down back and kick returner and could return on another one-year deal. But the Giants should prioritize getting some young legs in their backfield, especially as they weigh Barkley’s long-term prospects.
* — Restricted free agent. RFAs must be tendered as first round, second round or original round.** — Exclusive rights free agent. ERFAs are tendered at the minimum salary for the player’s experience level.
WIDE RECEIVERS: 7
The Giants have some nice complementary receivers, but they need to find a bona fide No. 1 target in free agency or the draft.
• Sterling Shepard (2023): Injuries have been a concern for Shepard and his production is down this season. But he remains a reliable target and he’ll be better suited for more of a complementary role if the Giants add a legitimate No. 1 receiver.
• Darius Slayton (2022): Slayton has been exceptionally productive for a fifth-round pick. But he has enough quiet stretches to prevent him from entering the No. 1 receiver conversation. He should thrive opposite a top receiver who would command more attention from defenses.
• Golden Tate (2022): Signing Tate to a four-year, $37.5 million contract when he was 30 was always a strange move. It doesn’t look any better two years later, as Tate’s role has been greatly reduced (much to his displeasure). The Giants figure to cut their losses after the season, which will create $6.1 million in cap savings and leave $4.7 million in dead money.
• Austin Mack (2021): Mack has emerged as a scrappy backup receiver. He had a few big catches when Tate was suspended in Week 9, but Mack’s main value thus far has been as a run blocker. If he develops as a special teamer, Mack could carve out a role as a valuable depth piece.
• Cody Core (2021): Core was one of the premier special teamers in the league before tearing his Achilles early in training camp. Judge values special teams, so the Giants figure to bring Core back.
• Dante Pettis (2021): The Giants claimed Pettis two weeks ago after the 2018 second-round pick was waived by the 49ers. The Giants figure to work Pettis into the mix on special teams this season, while giving him an opportunity to compete for a bigger role in the offseason.
• Da’Mari Scott (2021): Cutting players who opted out of this season may be perceived as insensitive, but Scott was a marginal player. Missing a full season doesn’t figure to help his odds of sticking on the roster.
• Free agents: CJ Board, Corey Coleman, David Sills (ERFA), Alex Bachman (ERFA), Binjimen Victor (ERFA), Derrick Dillon (ERFA). The Giants figure to bring back most of the young receivers from their practice squad to compete for roster spots in the offseason.
TIGHT ENDS: 3
The Giants can keep their tight end group completely intact for next season.
• Kaden Smith (2022): Expectations may have been a bit too high after Smith had a strong finish to the 2019 season as a receiver. But he’s settled in as a solid No. 2 tight end, which is a role he should be able to fill for years.
• Evan Engram (2021): The Giants reportedly weren’t listening to trade offers at the deadline for anything less than a first-round pick, so that’s a strong indication that they value the inconsistent Engram. The Giants picked up Engram’s $6 million fifth-year option for 2021, but they can cut ties before the new league year starts in March at no cost if they choose. They also could trade or extend Engram this offseason, but just letting him play out the fifth-year option seems like the most prudent approach.
• Levine Toilolo (2021): The Giants signed Toilolo to a two-year, $6.2 million contract last offseason, but they can cut ties with no dead money after this season. Otherwise, he’s due to make $2.9 million in 2021. That’s a bit pricey for a No. 3 tight end with cap space at a premium this offseason.
• Free agents: Rysen John (ERFA), Nate Wieting (ERFA). John is an intriguing project who could continue to develop behind the Giants’ established tight ends.
OFFENSIVE LINEMEN: 8
The Giants hope they have the core of their offensive line in place after using three draft picks on the position this year, but there are still plenty of question marks.
• Andrew Thomas (2023): The Giants took Thomas with the fourth pick in this year’s draft with the expectation that he’ll be a Pro Bowl-caliber left tackle. The early returns were discouraging, but Thomas has made strides recently. The Giants certainly will stick with Thomas, hoping he continues to show improvement and then develops further in his second season.
• Matt Peart (2023): Peart was viewed as a project when the Giants took him in the third round, but the UConn product has impressed while rotating at both tackle spots. It’s surprising that Peart hasn’t supplanted journeyman Cameron Fleming at right tackle, but the long-term plan is for Thomas and Peart to be the bookends of the line.
• Shane Lemieux (2023): Lemieux got thrust into the lineup in Week 8 after Will Hernandez tested positive for COVID-19. Lemieux needs refinement, particularly in pass protection, but he’s brought a nasty edge to the run game. The Giants will likely rotate their guards down the stretch, and Lemieux could show enough to make the team more inclined to cut veteran Kevin Zeitler this offseason.
• Nick Gates (2022): Signing Gates to a modest two-year, $6.8 million extension before the season looks like a wise move now. Gates is making steady progress at center after never playing the position before this season. If the 24-year-old continues to improve, the Giants will have a young player locked up for cheap at an important position.
• Nate Solder (2022): Things were aligned for Solder to play one more season and then become a cap casualty. But his decision to opt out of this season clouded the picture since it caused his contract to toll. The Giants will get $9.9 million in cap savings and eat $6.5 million in dead money if they cut Solder this offseason. The savings would have been $14 million with $6.5 million in dead money if Solder was cut after playing this season. It’s impossible to know if the 32-year-old Solder, who has kept a low profile since announcing his decision, wants to resume his career next season. And with Thomas and Peart in place, the Giants may decide to move on to save cap space.
• Kevin Zeitler (2021): Zeitler is the best player on the offensive line, but he’s also the oldest and most expensive (aside from Solder). The 30-year-old is due to count $14.5 million against the cap in 2021. If the Giants cut Zeitler, they’ll create $12 million in cap savings and eat $2.5 million in dead money. That’s significant savings that will be appealing if the Giants believe Hernandez and Lemieux can hold down the guard spots.
• Will Hernandez (2021): Hernandez has plateaued after a promising rookie season. But he remains a cheap, young, durable player. He missed two games recently after testing positive for COVID-19, which broke a streak of 2,523 consecutive snaps played to begin his career. He figures to retain his starting spot at left guard next season, with Zeitler or Lemieux on the right side.
• Kyle Murphy (2021): Murphy was promoted to the active roster recently after spending the first 10 weeks on the practice squad. That’s likely a sign that another team was showing interest in Murphy and the Giants didn’t want to lose the undrafted rookie. Murphy should be in contention for an interior backup role next season.
• Free agents: Cameron Fleming, Spencer Pulley, Chad Slade (RFA), Jackson Barton (ERFA), Kenny Wiggins. The Giants’ biggest offensive line decisions relate to players under contract (Zeitler and Solder). They could re-sign Fleming and Pulley as cheap veteran backups if they value continuity. Otherwise, similar players will be on the market to fill out the depth chart.
DEFENSIVE LINEMEN: 3
The defensive line is the strongest unit on the team, but it will be expensive to keep it together. The Giants may need to pick between Leonard Williams or Dalvin Tomlinson in free agency.
• Dexter Lawrence (2022): Lawrence is exactly what the Giants expected when they took him with the 17th pick in the 2019 draft. He’s a formidable presence against the run with some pass-rushing ability. Lawrence will be in line for a big payday in a year or two if develops into a more disruptive pass rusher.
• B.J. Hill (2021): Hill has been productive in a limited role. He represents a cheap replacement if the Giants don’t re-sign Tomlinson or Williams.
• R.J. McIntosh (2021): McIntosh has been a healthy scratch for every game this season. The 2018 fifth-round pick has been lost in the shuffle with so many higher-profile additions to the defensive line. McIntosh figures to compete for a backup role next season.
• Free agents: Leonard Williams, Dalvin Tomlinson, Austin Johnson, Niko Lalos (ERFA), David Moa (ERFA). Williams and Tomlinson are both set up for big paydays after performing well in contract years. Williams will likely be more expensive since he has more of an impact as a pass rusher. It’s hard to imagine Gettleman letting Williams walk after the controversial trade to acquire the former Jet. Meanwhile, Tomlinson is a model of consistency and was voted a team captain this season. He’s exactly the type of homegrown player the Giants should build around.
The Giants could sign both players, but doing so would be expensive. For a team with major holes elsewhere and depth at defensive line, investing top dollar in Williams and Tomlinson would be a questionable use of resources. It will be fascinating to see how the Giants approach this situation in the offseason.
OUTSIDE LINEBACKERS: 4
The Giants have some young pieces with promise, but the defense is begging for what Gettleman calls a “blue goose” edge rusher. He hasn’t managed to acquire one in his first three years on the job, but that should be a priority this offseason through the draft or free agency.
• Cam Brown (2023): Brown has made his mark as a core special teamer. The sixth-round pick has been sprinkled into pass-rushing packages, but it’s clear that the 6-foot-5, 233-pounder needs to bulk up to become an every-down player.
• Carter Coughlin (2023): Like Brown, Coughlin has been a core special teamer while seeing limited action in pass-rush packages. Coughlin has a sack in 14 defensive snaps this season. It would be a major score if the seventh-round pick can develop into a quality pass rusher.
• Oshane Ximines (2022): Ximines had a quiet start to the season before going on injured reserve with a shoulder injury in Week 5. The Giants hope to get Ximines back soon, but there’s no evidence yet that the 2019 third-round pick will be anything more than a rotational pass rusher.
• Lorenzo Carter (2021): Carter finally seemed to be realizing his potential before tearing his Achilles in Week 5. Carter’s versatility is a good fit for Patrick Graham’s defense, so he should reclaim a prominent spot in the linebacker rotation if he’s back to 100 percent next season.
• Free agents: Kyler Fackrell, Jabaal Sheard, Trent Harris (ERFA). Fackrell was a cost-efficient signing who fits Graham’s system, but his performance has declined recently. He could be back if he’s willing to sign another cheap deal, but the Giants should be focused on adding a top-flight edge rusher.
INSIDE LINEBACKERS: 4
Blake Martinez has been the upgrade the Giants desperately needed in the middle of their defense, but this position could use some reinforcements.
• Tae Crowder (2023): Crowder flashed potential before going on IR with a hamstring injury in Week 7. The seventh-round pick is expected to return soon, so the final stretch of the season should provide a better idea if he’s a viable option to start alongside Martinez. At the least, Crowder will provide depth.
• TJ Brunson (2023): Brunson has only appeared in three games on special teams, so it’s impossible to know what the rookie seventh-round pick brings to the table.
• Blake Martinez (2022): Martinez has come as advertised as a tackling machine. He’s answered some criticisms of his game by making plays (two sacks, one interception, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery) and being solid in coverage. The Giants surely have no regrets about giving Martinez a three-year, $30.75 million contract last offseason.
• David Mayo (2022): Mayo missed the first five games with a knee injury. He’s since been a core special teamer with a limited role on defense, which is the job he’s best suited for.
• Free agent: Devante Downs (RFA). Downs has started six games, but Crowder has more of a future with the team. The Giants could look to bolster this position in the draft or with a cheaper free agent to pair with Martinez.
CORNERBACKS: 6
The Giants hit a home run with the free agent signing of James Bradberry, but they need to find a competent No. 2 corner. They’ve expended a lot of draft capital at cornerback in the past two years with little to show for it.
• Darnay Holmes (2023): Holmes has predictably experienced growing pains, but the Giants have stuck with the fourth-round pick as their slot corner all season. The hope is that Holmes can eventually bring stability to a position that has been a weakness for years.
• James Bradberry (2022): Signing Bradberry to a three-year, $43.5 million contract stands as Gettleman’s best move as GM. Bradberry has played at an elite level, which is particularly impressive considering he always draws opponents’ No. 1 receiver and has little support from the team’s other corners.
• Sam Beal (2022): Beal would have had a prime opportunity to claim a starting job, but he opted out of the season. A third-round pick in the 2018 supplemental draft, Beal’s first two seasons were marred by injuries. Beal will be starting from ground zero with the coaching staff in the offseason, but he should have an opportunity to compete for a job considering the lack of talent at cornerback.
• Ryan Lewis (2021): Lewis has been part of a Band-Aid approach at the cornerback spot opposite Bradberry. He’s not a long-term answer, but should be in the mix as a backup next season.
• Isaac Yiadom (2021): The Giants were so desperate for cornerback help that they traded a 2021 seventh-round pick to the Broncos to acquire Yiadom before the season. The 2018 third-round pick lost his starting job earlier in the season but injuries gave him another shot. Yiadom has been better lately, but like Lewis, he seems better suited as a depth piece than a legitimate long-term option as the No. 2 corner.
• Shakial Taylor (2021): Taylor’s agent apparently filed paperwork quickly. The Giants announced they were waiving Taylor five days after they claimed him in training camp, but he opted out the same day. It’s unlikely Taylor will factor into the Giants’ plans for next season.
• Free agents: Madre Harper (ERFA), Brandon Williams, Jarren Williams (ERFA), Quincy Wilson. The Giants don’t have any big decisions to make at cornerback, unless they plan to pair Bradberry with another high-priced free agent.
SAFETIES: 4
The Giants hoped Jabrill Peppers and Xavier McKinney would be their long-term safety duo, but McKinney hasn’t gotten on the field due to a broken foot. Logan Ryan has ably held down the fort, but McKinney remains the future free safety.
• Xavier McKinney (2023): McKinney could return as soon as Week 12 after spending the entire season on IR after breaking his foot in training camp. His debut will be eagerly anticipated, although the Giants likely will bring him along slowly.
• Julian Love (2022): Love fell out of favor early in the season, but he’s reclaimed the No. 3 safety job due to Adrian Colbert’s shoulder injury. Love will likely cede snaps to McKinney down the stretch and projects as a dependable backup next season.
• Jaquarius Landrews (2022): Landrews has been on injured reserve since suffering a neck injury in training camp. The undrafted free agent will compete for a roster spot next season.
• Jabrill Peppers (2021): This coaching staff has found a way to utilize Peppers’ strengths (run defense, physicality), while minimizing his weaknesses (coverage, over-pursuit). Like Engram, the Giants picked up Peppers’ fifth-year option for 2021. The Giants’ best course of action will be letting Peppers play on that $6.8 million option and then making a determination about his future.
• Free agents: Logan Ryan, Adrian Colbert, Nate Ebner, Chris Williamson (ERFA), Montre Hartage (ERFA). Ryan has been everything the Giants imagined when they gave him a one-year deal worth up to $7.5 million after McKinney’s injury. But McKinney is the future so it’s hard to imagine paying up to keep Ryan, who turns 30 in February.
SPECIALISTS: 2
The Giants have their kicker and punter locked up after signing Graham Gano to a three-year extension last week.
• K Graham Gano (2023): Gano has resurrected his career with the Giants, making 21-of-22 field goals after missing last season with a leg injury. The Giants signed Gano to a one-year, $2.25 million contract in August, but they saw enough to give the 33-year-old a three-year, $14.5 million extension last week.
• P Riley Dixon (2022): Dixon has been a model of consistency in his three seasons with the Giants. Like with Gano, the Giants were proactive in extending Dixon last December to a three-year, $8.7 million deal.
• Free agents: LS Casey Kreiter, LS Carson Tinker, K/P Ryan Santoso (ERFA). The Giants could give Kreiter, who has been flawless this season, a modest extension to keep their specialists together.
OVERVIEW
The Giants should have more premier players at this stage of their rebuild, especially after having five first-round picks, including three in the top six, in the past three drafts. But they only have elite players under contract at running back (Barkley) and cornerback (Bradberry), while a case could be made that Martinez and Gano belong in that category.
The good news is the next tier of players is growing, with the likes of Slayton, Lawrence and Carter. The development of Jones and Thomas will go a long way in determining the success of the rebuild.
The Giants are projected to have $23 million in cap space and they can create another $31 million by cutting Tate, Toilolo, Solder and Zeitler, so they should be able to spend freely this offseason. The decision on signing Williams and/or Tomlinson looms largest among in-house free agents, while the Giants can make a splash at wide receiver, edge rusher or cornerback.
The record doesn’t show it, but the Giants feel closer to contending than any time since 2016. Now they need their recent draft classes to develop and to fill holes in free agency like they did last offseason with Bradberry and Martinez.

2020.11.23 04:49 Genprey Princess Connect ReDive: A Primer for the Upcoming Collab Event

The Dragalia team is really hitting it with these collabs for me.
Princess Connect Re:Dive is one of Cygames's most successful series, alongside Granblue Fantasy and Shadowverse, as well as the successor of the original project: "Princess Connect!". Princess Connect is a rather unique mobile RPG where players don't fully control the characters. Rather, players form a team of 5 characters that fill in specific roles: Attacker (Magic and Physical), Special Attacker, Tank, Support, and Healer. Each character has her own moveset and attack pattern, and while the game plays itself for the most part, players need to be conscientious about each cast member's positioning in a group, as that offers both defensive and offensive advantages, as well as synergies with other characters.
Princess Connect is most known for it's female-only (aside from one specific character) set of playable characters, along with a self-insert style, male protagonist ("Yuuki" as the default name), although there are male NPCs of both the generic and special variety as supporting characters. Staying true to Cygames's style, it's also a very colorful series that is almost fully voiced by a recognizable line-up of voice actors/actresses.
While the game is not available in the English language, fans/potential fans can enjoy the anime adaptation, which may easily come off as familiar to fans of Konosuba. The series adds to the "Isekai" sub-genre, but doesn't take itself too seriously. Similar to Konosuba, a lot of the charm comes from exaggerated expressions/reactions, absurd situations, and over-the-top quirks exhibited by the characters. In that sense, it is an easy-to-enjoy anime, however, despite being predominantly laid-back, actually can get rather serious as the main story develops.
As mentioned earlier, one of the main draws of Princess Connect is its cast of characters. Taking place in a simulated space (see: Log Horizon), each character mainly appears as a sort of "avatar" and shows off their human (or Llama) after progressing their personal story section. In addition to this, each of the girls (and guy) are grouped in different guilds/factions, each having a different goal in mind. Some of these include:

Gourmet Edifice

A guild that is dedicated to travelling in order to find a variety of ingredients used to concoct new dishes. This is guild houses our main characters, including the one confirmed to be featured in Dragalia, Pecorine.
Pecorine (Guild leader)
Voiced by MAO: Narmaya (Granblue), Europa (Fate/Grand Order), Melascula (7DS), HMS Howe (Azur Lane)
"The Stomach that is Always Starving", as indicated over her taking a big bite out of our delicious friend, Pecorine is a glutton who lives to cook and eat unique dishes. Pecorine is extremely friendly, if not airheaded, who tends not to be aware of negativity. Deep down, however, lies a burden behind a front of optimism.
Yuuki ("You")
Voiced by Atsushi Abe: Male Hakuno (Fate/Last Encore), Tobin (Fire Emblem: Shadows of Valentia), Toma (Magical Index series), Andrew/Bill/NUS 64 (Starfox 64 remake)
The protagonist of the series. Somewhat unremarkable by design, Yuuki is a teenage boy who suffers from amnesia. Despite this, he is a diligent individual who holds the ability to enhance the strength of the female characters. Best described as a "walking liability" in the anime.
Kokoro
Voiced by Miku Ito, who is relatively new to the scene: Mitsuba (Dragalia Lost), Miku Nakano (Quintessential Quintuplets)
One of the primary characters, Kokoro is the first girl Yuuki meets after having come up with Amnesia. Being the servant assigned to care for Yuuki, Kokoro is extremely loyal and can be viewed as a motherly figure, despite her young age. Recently became known for her "0x0" face in the anime adaptation.
Kyaru
Voiced by Rika Tachibana: Yuisis (Granblue), Plume/Gravel (Arknights), Ria Ami (Magia Record)
The third primary character, Kyaru originally joined Gourmet Edifice with ulterior motives. Tsundere character, Kyaru is the type to complain about her friends, but goes along with their plans regardless. Can be stand-offish as a means to hide her loneliness and desire for positive feedback from others. The third member of the Aqua/Ishtar expression trio.

Twinkle Wish

An old guild that works toward one crucial goal: to reach the top of "Sol Tower" in order to find the wish-granting entity that rests at the top.
Normie Girl Yui Kasano
Voiced by Risa Taneda: Sazanka (Dragalia Lost), Ai (Zombieland Saga), Kiyohime/Marie Antoinette/Mata Hari/(Originally) Mash (Fate/Grand Order), Palla (Fire Emblem), Xenovia (Highschool DXD)...according to a friend, of course.
"Girl next door" type, Yui is Yuuki's childhood friend who (not so) very clearly has feelings for him. In order to better herself as an adventurer, Yui desired to journey to the wish-granting AI, "Minerva", eventually meeting and grouping up with Rei and Hiyori.
Best Girl, Rei Shijo
Voiced by the extremely pleasant Hayami Saori: Elisanne (Dragalia Lost), Meltryllis (Fate/Extra CCC, Fate/Grand Order), Atalante (Fate/Apocrypha, Fate/Grand Order) Ushiwakamaru/Saint Martha (Fate/Grand Order), Fubuki (One Punch Man), Shinobu Kochu (Demon Slayer), honestly, if it's best girl in a respective series, she's likely voiced by Hayamin, and I say that without any sort of bias at all.
Knightly Character, Rei started off as a loner until she found and protected Yui from a band of scam artists. Hesitant at first, Rei eventually warmed up to her 2 guildmates, who seek the legend atop Sol Tower. Extra emphasis on Best Girl.
Hiyori Harusaki
Voiced by Nao Toyama: Lyria (Granblue), High Elf (Goblin Slayer), Ibaraki Douji/Calamity Jane/Suzuka Gozen (Fate/Grand Order), Celica (Fire Emblem: Shadows of Valentia), Trish Una (Jojo's/Golden Wind)
Tomboyish/high-energy type, Hiyori is the kind of person to act before thinking. Despite this, she is extremely loyal and reliable to her friends and acts as encouragement throughout their struggles.

Diabolos

A guild composed of fiend-raced members (demon-like race), Diabolos seeks to restore their leader, Ilya Ornstein, to her full power before the battle against the Gods.
Ilya Ornstein (Guild Leader)
Voiced by Sakura Tange: Mitsuhide (Dragalia Lost), Nero Claudius (Fate/Extra, Fate/Last Encore, Fate/Grand Order), Jack the Ripper (Fate/Apocrypha, Fate/Grand Order), Uncle Cagliostro (Granblue), Cardcaptor Sakura
A fiend-race woman who, after having been defeated in a major war, was forced to retreat and rest in her coffin. Upon waking up, Ilya would be unable to maintain her true form, becoming child-like and weak to the point of being bullied by her own minion army. Headpats from Yuuki allow her to temporary change into her extremely powerful "adult form", however. Basically Shinobu Oshino.
Yori and Akari Kazemiya
Voiced by Sayuri Hara (Yori): Philia/Yachiyo (Dragalia Lost), Luna (Konosuba), Reimi (Jojo's/Diamond is Unbreakable)
Azumi Asakura (Akari): Misaki (A Certain Scientific Railgun), Asia (Highschool DXD), Cardigan/Specter (Arknights), Fraux (Granblue)
Twin sisters, Yori is the extremely shy type who often finds herself stammering over her own words, especially when interacting with men. Despite being as socially competent as a Reddit user, Yori is relatively tough and, unknowingly, has a habit of calling those who have bad behavior out.
Akari is the complete opposite of her sister, as a girl who is extremely outgoing. "Little sister" type who tends to become unseemly when excited. Fantastic at playing Jazz music.
Shinobu Kamiki
Voiced by Yuka Otsubo, who I only recognize as Corbeau (Magia Record) and Leaf (Pokemon Masters)
A calm, cool, and collected girl with a rather different, gothic aesthetic about her. Shinobu makes a living off fortune-telling, having the ability to contact the departed. The skull she travels with is her father, who has the habit of flirting with girls, something that's best not to think too hard about. A sweetheart, despite her father's antics.
Miyako Izumo
Voiced by Sora Amamiya: Louise (Dragalia Lost), Aqua (Konosuba), Yachiyo (Magia Record), Nessa (Pokemon Sword/Shield), Kasumi (Persona 5), Elizabeth (7DS), Thrud (Fate/Grand Order)
A ghost of a girl whose obsession with pudding is more or less equivalent to Louise's obsession with her brother. Very childish and troublesome spirit, however, it's best not to irritate her, or you'll be cursed (transformed into pudding).

Twilight Caravan

An extremely volatile and terrifying guild whose motives tend to be unwieldly and self-serving. Putting that aside, they're pretty dandy individuals.
Ruka Tachiarai (Guild Leader)
Voiced by Rina Sato: Johanna/Sinoa (Dragalia Lost), Makoto (Persona 5), Yugiri (Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood), HAYATO (Jojo's/Diamond is Unbreakable), Lakshmibai (Fate/Grand Order), Mikoto (Magical Index series)
Surprisingly normal woman. Has the appearance and mannerisms of a "wandering samurai" type and acts with maturity and rationality that come into contrast with her fellow guidlmates. Likes relaxing evenings fishing.
Mitsuki Yoigahama
Voiced by Kotono Mitsuishi: Boa Hancock (One Piece), THE LEGENDARY Tae Yamada (Zombieland Saga), Pipimi (Pop Team Epic), Misato Katsuragi (Evangelion), Aoko Aozaki (Melty Blood), Sailor Moon (Original series)
Rejoice, Tae Takemi fans. Mitsuki is one of the older characters in the series and serves as a woman of science...using humans for her experiments. Terrifying by nature, Mitsuki has earned infamy among residents of the land for her scientific/medical practices. A viable alternative to the United States Healthcare system, all things considered.
Eriko Kuraishi
Voiced by Chinami Hashimoto: Priscella/Rebecca (Fire Emblem Heroes), Chiyo (Prison School), Prince of Whales (Azur Lane)
Yandere type character. At the end of her sword, Shinobu's father told Eriko that she would meet her "destined one" in the near future. While on the verge of losing consciousness after inhaling some of her own concoctions, Yuuki would approach the fallen maiden with a helping hand, solidifying himself as Eriko's soulmate. Fantastic with kids and is extremely talented at cooking, sewing, and gift-making.
Nanaka Tanno
Voiced by Haruka Yoshimura: Hazuki (Magia Record), Yang Guifei (Fate/Grand Order)
An otaku girl who is into anime and video games, especially that of the magical girl subgenre. High in energy, Nanaka seeks to find rare magic books and is known to enthusiastically (read: recklessly) try out any new spells she comes across. Despite having the appearance and equipment suited for a caster, Nanaka desires to fight in close quarters, much like the characters from her favorite anime. Owns a dakimakura with her likeness.
Anna Hiiragi
Voiced by Asami Takano, who, unfortunately, I don't recognize from any other roles.
Chuuni-type character. Anna fits this archetype to the core, referring to herself and others in grandiose nicknames, performing unnecessarily dramatic poses, owning an extremely powerful eye, etc. Despite being a complete weirdo, Anna is well-respected for how well she entertains the neighborhood kids.
There are a lot more characters/guilds, but because this post is already long/straying from being on-topic as it is, I'll stop the character introductions right there.
Overall, Princess Connect is truly a cousin series to Dragalia and is managed very similarly. The remainder of this post will be directed at those who are interested in trying the game out (before or after playing the collab), where I'll go over some likely questions a Dragalia player is likely to have.

How similar is Princess Connect to Dragalia Lost?
In terms of gameplay, Princess Connect is about as opposite as things get from Dragalia. While you play a very active role in Dragalia (as an action game), your role in Princess Connect is passive, where you're responsible for building a team that is high in synergy and activating each characters super attack. Things become more similar when looking at mechanics, however. There are raid bosses that have different mechanics and behaviors that you'll need to build around. Rather than an elemental system, Princess Connect simplifies things into magic/physical damage/weaknesses.
Comparing story is rather moot, unless you're able to read Japanese, although there is a small, dedicated team of translators who work on delivering event/character stories in English. Putting that aside, every character has her own sidestory, each being multiple chapters long. Additionally, there are guild-exclusive stories that focus around, as you can guess, each respective guild.
The most off-putting part of the story is the fact that the playable cast is pretty much female only, while the main character is a typical harem protagonist. For comparison's sake, Princess Connect tends to focus more on the characters falling for the protagonist moreso than Euden and Guda(o) in FGO, although Euden is an independent character (albeit with our name), rather than a straight self-insert.

How fair is the gacha?
Priconne's gacha follows the same format as your typical Cygames title, where it sports high base rates, but lower rateup. There is sparking, where, after 300 rolls, you are able to redeem a featured character.
After every roll, you get an item that is somewhat similar to Eldwater in Dragalia. These items can be collected and used to purchase character pieces of characters you own in order to upgrade their rarity/stats. This gives a pretty hefty boost to a character, but isn't very necessary to progress in PvE.
A good chunk of 3 star (5 star equivalent) characters are technically free, as you are able to collect a large sum of pieces and summon them. You can earn these pieces by clearing hard mode maps (limited to a few times a day) that they are featured in, as a reward for events the character appears in, and by logging in during their birthday.
You get a pretty steady income of summoning currency, especially as a new player who has a ton of story maps (all difficulties), character stories, permanent events, etc. to go through. Likewise, Cygames likes to host daily ten-rolls during special occasions and pretty much will hand out rolls just because the director saw a beautiful flower on his way to work that morning. With that being said, there is a bit of incentive to use this currency as a means to refresh your stamina in order to make quick progression, but this is by no means a necessity.
Like Granblue and Dragalia, there are special banner events called "Princess Fest" that feature limited characters and higher base rates for the gacha. To my knowledge, new players will have one available for a few days after starting.

How balanced is Princess Connect?
For PvE, it's very easy-going, and while there are characters who are clearly stronger than others in their respective roles, you can get away with using just about anyone, so long as the team composition is well-made and the particular map is appropriate for them. Many low-rarity characters are among the strongest in the game after having received their "uncap" that puts them at 6 star rarity with improved abilities. Likewise, characters regularly receive "unique gear" that further boosts their skills. Characters featured during Princess Fest tend to be more powerful/unique, but f2P-friendly characters are still, at the very least, useful for filling a key niche.
PvP becomes a bit more strict, and thankfully, you're up against AI who don't always make full use of super timings. Nonetheless, some characters end up being oppressive if you are not prepared to deal with them.

How is the grind compared to Dragalia?
Princess Connect is pretty laid-back and well-suited as a side-game, if you choose to treat it as such. In that regard, I would compare it to Arknights, in that it's quick to burn through your stamina, but still make meaningful progression. There are skip tickets that you can use on most stages after clearing it with a 3 star rating and you can use these in bulk. You pretty much have an endless supply of them, too.
Outside of events/story, your main goal is to farm for equipment, which, after having collected a full set, can be consumed by a character in order to increase their rank (not to be confused with star rarity). This is your main source of poweprogression.
Events follow a similar structure to your typical Cygames title, you progress the story and farm the event boss for lotto currency. Said currency can be used to roll boxes with goodies, including summoning currency, the currency used to upgrade characters, equipment, EXP potions, and character pieces of featured characters.

Are there any plans for an English release?
Last I checked, Cygames seems to be interested, but cannot find a publisher to handle the project.
That's about all I have. As you might have guessed, I enjoy Priconne and seeing it finally visiting Dragalia is pretty exciting to me, although I'm a bit sad that I probably won't be able to make a dream team with Elly and Rei.

2020.11.21 20:42 Enough-Oil-2003 An expose into UK media corruption part 1 of 2

Dear WayOfTheBern
I John Smith (not my real name just an alias and not a whistle-blower but instead a private citizen via my redacted email address) has already sent the email in question to Jordan Petersons wife, Evening Standard, Rudy Giuliani, WayOfTheBern (who I originally sent to WayOfTheBern privatelyfor feedback purposes), LBC, Henry Jackson Society, Eric July, Telegraph inquiries, Julia Hartley Brewer, Leader of the house of commons cabinet office, Quilliam foundation (hoping that would reach Majjid Nawza), Treasuray Solicitor, Tulsi Gabbard, Tim Pool, Whistleblower, The MP who is currently The Attorney General for The United Kingdom at the time of this email, Daily express, Daily Mail, Julia Hartley Brewer, Jonathan Pie, Iain Dale, free speech union, Pierce Bainbridge, L lin Wood, Jonathan Guills, Telegraph investigations departement, Lindsay Hole, Kemi Badenoch, Jacob Rees Mogg, defund the BBC (since Calvin Robinson works there hoping that the email in question is referred to Calvin Robinson), Guido Fawkes, Daily express, The Crown Prosecution Service (specifically their inquiries departement), The Attorney General office, The Advertising Standards Authority, Ofcom, The Spectator UK, The Spectator USA and The Spectator Australia, Douglas Murray (who I was hoping that if The Spectator did not see the email in question that since Douglas Murray works for The Spectator, Douglas Murray would notify The Spectator of the email in question), The Private Eye, The equalities office for the United Kingdom, MP Desmond Swayne, I news editorial division, I news reader division, Calvin Robinson, Konstantin Kisin, Count Dankulas Lawyer, Crimebodge, CPS London Magistratex and Solicitor Ian Guld who all of them have not reply me back (or in the case of Gudio Fawkes refuse to read the email in question below due to its length or in the case of CPS London Magistrates life gets in the way and I get nervous due to me not being certain if this was the right address or due to previous experiences if I was going to be taken seriously) but thought you might be interested in as it deals with intustonlized misconduct and corruption.
Keep in mind this I don't not wish to make any personal finical gain out of this and that for this to be referred to cps as soon as possible as these potentially illegal pratices as stated within the email in question has lead to some personal to me defndning abhorrent things (I.e. Jacob blake) and believing in falsehoods.
I was originally going to do this as one big post but dye to reddit 40000 characters on post policy one had to split this into 2 parts.
My hope for this email is to kick-start an investigation which can then not only be published but also be referred to the likes of CPS for further investigation which can result in potential prosecutions as further explained in the email in question not only can these illegal/misleading pratices affect and decive people but also can cause them into defending people who have committed abhorrent things.
For The Private eye, The Spectator and Douglas Murray I sent this a list of commands offering this story but to no avail with these list of 8 demands:
  1. To be a able to send my investigation annoymusly without fear of reprisal.
  2. If it is publishded in one of your issues then for it to be done in both of your magazines and in the case of The Private Eye as a special report similar to that of the expose of the post office back in March/April of 2020.
  3. For this to be kept under wraps and not to be reported in either magizine until all investigations and trials have been completed.
  4. For this to be considered my extremely early entry for the next Paul Foot award.
  5. For this to be sent to both the head of The Crown Prosecution Service and The Attorney General of The United Kingdom (as well as their respective body's).
  6. For both Ian Hislop and Andrew Neil to be kept away from this due to it relating to a former employer which would consistitue a conflict of interest if either of them got involved in this.
  7. If this does lead to legal action being taken then for me to be able to testify anonymously due to me being both underage (17 at the time of writing this email) and autistic.
  8. For Ofcom, The Crown Prosecution Service and for The Attorney Geneal to be questioned on why I wasnt contacted back about this.
Keep in mind this since the original version of the email in question was made and sent I've encountered even more evidence of misconduct by the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 4 news and a new offender in the form of sainsbury's so the email in question is to be treated similar to that of the theratical cut of a film as I'm developing what amounts to the directors cut of the email in question.
If there's things that are outdated in the email in question that's because this was sent originally on the 8th of September 2020 so information should be correct at the time of the email in question.
Email in question:
Dear Ofcom, Advertising Standards Authority and Crown Prosecution Service
I am writing this to present evidence which can easily lead to an investigation into multiple people and organisations with those being: Naga Munchetty, Lewis Goodall, Channel 4 news, Cathy Newman, John Snow, Dorothy Byrne The Guardian, Channel 4 and the BBC.
In regards to Naga Munchetty she has recently be found to not only have been paid to do a speech with Rollys Royce durning a virtual conference but also that she did consult the BBC first and actively tried to hide it so it would be wise to see if she's been involved in any other finical conflicts of interest recently.
Naga Munchetty caught trying to hide a massive conflict of interest in regards to her speaker role with Rolls Royce: https://inews.co.uk/news/naga-munchetty-conflict-interest-warning-bbc-moonlighting-aston-martin-pr-video-574797
In regards to Lewis Goodall (who by the way has worked for progressive think tank Institute for Public Policy Research in the past as well as working inside 10 Downing Street under Theresa May before working back in brodcasting) has recently did a front page cover story for The New Statesman (who by the way on their website says their liberal and progressive) which is not only a conflict of interest in regards to due impartiality but also a finical conflict of interest since Lewis Goodall is being paid as a guest columnist to critize the government even though under 15.3.17 of the BBC's impartality guidelines bans anyone from expressing strong views, advocating against a policy and exhorting change in a policy.
How even the Institute for Public Policy own website describe themselves as a progressive think tank: https://www.ippr.org/

In regards to Channel 4 news I have been noticing that they've have been omitting information from their news reports (as well as not correcting errors from previous news reports which if included said information would change the entire context of their news story. In order to give you an idea of this I shall use 11 examples to prove my point.
Example 1: https://www.channel4.com/news/protests-erupt-in-wisconsin-after-police-shooting-of-black-man
Example 2: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QoMKHlciP-4#
Example 3 (same as example 2 but only 6 minutes instead of 10 minutes): https://www.channel4.com/news/former-trump-adviser-defends-wisconsin-police-who-shot-jacob-blake-in-the-back
Example 4 (same video as example 11): https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=v4metQOo67I
Not only have Channel 4 news decided not to disclose the fact that in all of the first four examples that the police were there to arrest Jacob Blake for allegedly committing sexual assult (as well as having an arrest warrant for a previous felony sexual assult charge) minutes before the police arrived on scene (which is falsely claimed in example 1 that Jacob was there to break up a domestic dispute between two women which in reality had violated a restraining order as well as the fact that the victims car keys was stolen which she then called the cops and purses Jacob which wasn't disclosed in any of the first four examples) and the fact that the police allegedly told Jacob to "drop the knife" which why they had tasered him in the first place but also that when police told him to stop not not only did Jacob go to the car which had multiple children inside but also that not only was it later revealed that Jacob confessed to having a knife but also said knife was found inside the floorboards of the car (which the alleged sexual assult plus the fact that Jacob was tasered and ignored the cops about to get a knife out of the car was the reason why he was shot which goes directly against example 1 claim of Jacob being unarmed when shot which wasn't corrected in examples 2, 3 and 4) with Channel 4 news also failing to disclose in example 4 that Jacob Blake's father has made several anti-semitic and anti-white comments on Facebook.

Example 5: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lDLtondx66k
Example 6: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_kiUMqHM7Pg
Not only have Channel 4 news decided not to disclose the fact that Kyle Rittenhouse lawyer has claimed that Kyle Rittenhouse was working as a community lifeguard on the day in question to help out clean graffiti and damage from a local highschool (with Channel 4 news also claiming he's a white supremacist even though there has been no evidence to condclude that Kyle was part of a white supremacist group as the local vigantile group The Kenosha Guard has said that they're not certain if Kyle Rittenhouse were part of their group so the claim of white supremacist is unproven at best and baseless and false at worst) whilst also withholding the fact that Kyle received information of a call from a local auto dealership who need help protecting his business from further destruction (where once police dispersing a croward came past Kyle where although they were being taunting and threatened towards Kyle no physical altercation took place) but also that in the guns used in the killing were not only provided to Kyle (which is falsely claimed in example 5 and not corrected in example 6 that the guns used in the killing were from outside the state of Wisconsin as well as not disclosing the fact that Kyle may have a claim to self defence due to how wide Wisconsin state law on concealed carrying in regards to an exception for rifles and shotguns, intended to allow people age 16 and 17 to hunt as well as Channel 4 news not disclosing that Wisconsin is an open carry state) and from within the state of Wisconsin but also that not only did the local police change formation and close down a route which Kyle used to go between the auto mechanic shop and gas station after Kyle went back to the gas station the second time after helping out people who were injured by admistrating first aid or directing them to place which dealt with more serious injuries (and confirming there were no more injuries) Kyle after learning that the police had blocked his path back to the auto shop and complying with them was going back to the gas station where Mr. Rittenhouse was latter seen being chased by an unknown group of people into the parking lot of another dealership several blocks away when Kyle's first victim Joseph Rosebum (who Channel 4 news hid the fact that he was a convicted pedophile and had occured 42 disciplinary infractions in Arizona federal prison) not only taunted at Kyle to shoot him in the head (which channel 4 news also hid the fact of) but also that then at the same time an unknown 3rd party trying to shoot at Kyle (which Channel 4 news did not disclose) which then lead to Kyle not only running for his life but also that whilst being chased down not only was Kyle ambushed by Joseph Rosebum who tried and failed to disarm him (with Channel 4 news also failing to disclosing that something was thrown at Kyle Rittenhouse by Joseph Rosebum) who then got shot and later died, Gaige Grosskreutz and Anthony Hubertried tried to ambush Kyle (who Channel 4 news in example 4 and not corrected in example 5 claim that both were not armed even though video evidence is show with Gauge Grosskreutz having a gun) with Kyle then running for his life who unintentionality tripped over and with two people attacking him on the ground (with Anthony Hubertried using a skateboard to smash Kyle over the head and Gauge Grosskreutz having a gun which Channel 4 news did not disclosing the fact that both Anothh Hubertried and Gauge Grosskreutz were armed with Channel 4 news also falsely claiming that they were both unarmed along with not disclosing the fact that they both had criminal records for battery, strangulation and intoxication with Gauge Grosskreutz having a gun) and just as other people where closing in on Kyle, after Kyle shot twice (one to Anothny Hubertried who later died and one to Gauge Grosskreutz) after calling someone saying that he killed then tried to turn himself in but the police ignored him at the time wanting for him to move from the area (which Channel 4 news did not disclose the fact that he handed himself into Antioch, Illinois police).
The fact that even the local malitia group The Kenosha Guard is uncertain if Kyle Rittenhouse was connected to their group as well as confessing to someone on the phone that he killed someone: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/what-we-know-so-far-about-kyle-rittenhouse-accused-vigilante-in-kenosha-shooting/ar-BB18p9Dw

Stephen Miler and Dan Scavino both publicaly saying (as well as showing in emails between them and secret and classified internal White House contacts) that Trump wasn't able to attend the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018 because the president’s helicopter Marine One was grounded due to bad weather which was decided by the Marine Corps and the White House Military Office, which then presents the recommendation to the White House in collaboration with the Secret Service and not because Trump feared that his hair would get wet due to the rain as originally claimed in The Atlantic and in Examples 7 and 8 of potentially deceptive reporting by Channel 4 news: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/white-house-officials-deny-trump-disparaged-war-dead-and-say-he-was-livid-he-could-not-visit-french-cemetery

Example 11 (same as Example 4): https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=v4metQOo67I
After Example 10 was made and in Example 11 by Channel 4 news not only have Channel 4 news failed to disclose that the bodycam footage leading up to George Floyd has been released (which shows George Floyd not only disobeying police orders and resiting arrest) but also that not only did George Floyd said "I can't breath" whilst police were trying to get him in the back of the police car before asking to be put on the ground but also that not only Channel 4 news has refused to mention that the Minneapolis Police training manual instructs officers on how to subdue violent or resisting suspects by placing their knee on the neck of said suspect but also that it's been revealed that George Floyd's had a fatal fentanyl level of 11 which under normal circumstances would kill someone 2 to 3 times over which Channel 4 news has not disclosed (with all 3 medical reports admitting that he was on drugs durning his death as well as having Covid-19) and that if George Floyd had died somewhere else and there were no contributing circumstances then George Floyd's death would be ruled as an drug overdose death (though the two other memos filed Tuesday from the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office about conversations with Chief Hennepin County Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew could be incomplete because they were awaiting microscopic slides, pictures and other evidence from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s report).

In regards to Cathy Newman in terms of what she did in the video below her actions would fall under both Monroe v Hopkins of 2017 and McAlpine v Bercow of 2013 as not only did Cathy knew what she was saying was wrong but also unlike Monroe V Hopkins of 2017 (where you can at least say that Katie Hopkins intially didn't realise that her comments were addressed to the wrong person) and McAlpine v Bercow of 2013 (where you can say at least that Bercow didn't realise that the information she was intially spreading at the time was false) when push came to shove and CCTV evidence showed that Cathy Newman had lied in her tweets although both Cathy Newman and Dorothy Byrne did later apologise not only did the mosque in question receive death threats but also that Cathy Newman then later did another bad faith interview with Jordan Peterson.

In regards to Jon Snow after the investigation into the pro-brexit rally he was cleared of back in 2019 there may have been a line of inquiry missed in terms of that investigation as back in 2017 allegations came out against Jon Snow where it's alleged that durning Glastonbury (on the day before a mass address was to be made by Jeremy Corbyn) John Snow made disparaging comments about the Tories (which he then said he had no recollection of saying that) which from all the evidence that I can see wasn't investigated by anybody (though Channel 4 did at least remind Jon Snow of of his duties in regards to due impartality) which could constitute evidence of bad character under The Criminal Justice Act of 2003 Chapter 1 evidence of bad character explanatory notes.

In regards to Dorothy Byrne not only was she the person who has overseen seen the potentially misleading news reporting of Channel 4 news and both the Cathy Newman and Jon Snow situations but also back in 2019 durning 2019 durning her MacTaggart lecture Dorothy Byrne had called Boris Johnson both "a coward" (but did also say that Jeremy Corbyn was "a coward") and "a known liar" as well as comparing him to Vladimir Putin (as well as doubling down on her comments after initial comments) which if it was said privately but leaked to the public would be concerning but at the very least you could say that their her own private personal views or if it was a low ranking Channel 4 news you could say she's lacks authority to do newspieces however though this was said in public and was videotaped which not only calls into question due impartality since she's the head of Channel 4 news (which a reasonable person would suspect that Dorothy Buren would order her employees to do more negative stories on Boris Johnson since she has an axe to grind with Boris Johnson) but also that this was said back in August 22-23 2019 about 3-4 months to the 2019 General Election a reasonable person would suspect that Dorothy Buren would order her employees to do more negative stories on Boris Johnson since she has an axe to grind with Boris Johnson along the fact that with the above statement above Boris Johnson it would be in her best interest in protecting people who disavow Boris Johnson which is why there needs to be an independent investigation into Jon Snow's comments at Glastonbury as well as a reinvestigation into his comments at the Pro-brexit rally instead of an internal investigation by Channel 4 news since not only would it be a conflict of interest but also that the investigation would be buried and turned into a complete and utter whitewash.

2020.11.21 20:32 Enough-Oil-2003 An expose into UK media corruption part 1 of 2

Dear JordanPeterson
I John Smith (not my real name just an alias and not a whistle-blower but instead a private citizen via my redacted email address) has already sent the email in question to Jordan Petersons wife, Evening Standard, Rudy Giuliani, WayOfTheBern (who I originally sent to WayOfTheBern privately for feedback purposes), LBC, Henry Jackson Society, Eric July, Telegraph inquiries, Julia Hartley Brewer, Leader of the house of commons cabinet office, Quilliam foundation (hoping that would reach Majjid Nawza), Treasuray Solicitor, Tulsi Gabbard, Tim Pool, Whistleblower, The MP who is currently The Attorney General for The United Kingdom at the time of this email, Daily express, Daily Mail, Julia Hartley Brewer, Jonathan Pie, Iain Dale, free speech union, Pierce Bainbridge, L lin Wood, Jonathan Guills, Telegraph investigations departement, Lindsay Hole, Kemi Badenoch, Jacob Rees Mogg, defund the BBC (since Calvin Robinson works there hoping that the email in question is referred to Calvin Robinson), Guido Fawkes, Daily express, The Crown Prosecution Service (specifically their inquiries departement), The Attorney General office, The Advertising Standards Authority, Ofcom, The Spectator UK, The Spectator USA and The Spectator Australia, Douglas Murray (who I was hoping that if The Spectator did not see the email in question that since Douglas Murray works for The Spectator, Douglas Murray would notify The Spectator of the email in question), The Private Eye, The equalities office for the United Kingdom, MP Desmond Swayne, I news editorial division, I news reader division, Calvin Robinson, Konstantin Kisin, Count Dankulas Lawyer, Crimebodge, CPS London Magistratex and Solicitor Ian Guld who all of them have not reply me back (or in the case of Gudio Fawkes refuse to read the email in question below due to its length or in the case of CPS London Magistrates life gets in the way and I get nervous due to me not being certain if this was the right address or due to previous experiences if I was going to be taken seriously) but thought you might be interested in as it deals with intustonlized misconduct and corruption.
Keep in mind this I don't not wish to make any personal finical gain out of this and that for this to be referred to cps as soon as possible as these potentially illegal pratices as stated within the email in question has lead to some personal to me defndning abhorrent things (I.e. Jacob blake) and believing in falsehoods.
I was originally going to do this as one big post but dye to reddit 40000 characters on post policy one had to split this into 2 parts.
My hope for this email is to kick-start an investigation which can then not only be published but also be referred to the likes of CPS for further investigation which can result in potential prosecutions as further explained in the email in question not only can these illegal/misleading pratices affect and decive people but also can cause them into defending people who have committed abhorrent things.
For The Private eye, The Spectator and Douglas Murray I sent this a list of commands offering this story but to no avail with these list of 8 demands:
  1. To be a able to send my investigation annoymusly without fear of reprisal.
  2. If it is publishded in one of your issues then for it to be done in both of your magazines and in the case of The Private Eye as a special report similar to that of the expose of the post office back in March/April of 2020.
  3. For this to be kept under wraps and not to be reported in either magizine until all investigations and trials have been completed.
  4. For this to be considered my extremely early entry for the next Paul Foot award.
  5. For this to be sent to both the head of The Crown Prosecution Service and The Attorney General of The United Kingdom (as well as their respective body's).
  6. For both Ian Hislop and Andrew Neil to be kept away from this due to it relating to a former employer which would consistitue a conflict of interest if either of them got involved in this.
  7. If this does lead to legal action being taken then for me to be able to testify anonymously due to me being both underage (17 at the time of writing this email) and autistic.
  8. For Ofcom, The Crown Prosecution Service and for The Attorney Geneal to be questioned on why I wasnt contacted back about this.
Keep in mind this since the original version of the email in question was made and sent I've encountered even more evidence of misconduct by the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 4 news and a new offender in the form of sainsbury's so the email in question is to be treated similar to that of the theratical cut of a film as I'm developing what amounts to the directors cut of the email in question.
If there's things that are outdated in the email in question that's because this was sent originally on the 8th of September 2020 so information should be correct at the time of the email in question.
Email in question:
Dear Ofcom, Advertising Standards Authority and Crown Prosecution Service
I am writing this to present evidence which can easily lead to an investigation into multiple people and organisations with those being: Naga Munchetty, Lewis Goodall, Channel 4 news, Cathy Newman, John Snow, Dorothy Byrne The Guardian, Channel 4 and the BBC.
In regards to Naga Munchetty she has recently be found to not only have been paid to do a speech with Rollys Royce durning a virtual conference but also that she did consult the BBC first and actively tried to hide it so it would be wise to see if she's been involved in any other finical conflicts of interest recently.
Naga Munchetty caught trying to hide a massive conflict of interest in regards to her speaker role with Rolls Royce: https://inews.co.uk/news/naga-munchetty-conflict-interest-warning-bbc-moonlighting-aston-martin-pr-video-574797
In regards to Lewis Goodall (who by the way has worked for progressive think tank Institute for Public Policy Research in the past as well as working inside 10 Downing Street under Theresa May before working back in brodcasting) has recently did a front page cover story for The New Statesman (who by the way on their website says their liberal and progressive) which is not only a conflict of interest in regards to due impartiality but also a finical conflict of interest since Lewis Goodall is being paid as a guest columnist to critize the government even though under 15.3.17 of the BBC's impartality guidelines bans anyone from expressing strong views, advocating against a policy and exhorting change in a policy.
How even the Institute for Public Policy own website describe themselves as a progressive think tank: https://www.ippr.org/

In regards to Channel 4 news I have been noticing that they've have been omitting information from their news reports (as well as not correcting errors from previous news reports which if included said information would change the entire context of their news story. In order to give you an idea of this I shall use 11 examples to prove my point.
Example 1: https://www.channel4.com/news/protests-erupt-in-wisconsin-after-police-shooting-of-black-man
Example 2: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QoMKHlciP-4#
Example 3 (same as example 2 but only 6 minutes instead of 10 minutes): https://www.channel4.com/news/former-trump-adviser-defends-wisconsin-police-who-shot-jacob-blake-in-the-back
Example 4 (same video as example 11): https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=v4metQOo67I
Not only have Channel 4 news decided not to disclose the fact that in all of the first four examples that the police were there to arrest Jacob Blake for allegedly committing sexual assult (as well as having an arrest warrant for a previous felony sexual assult charge) minutes before the police arrived on scene (which is falsely claimed in example 1 that Jacob was there to break up a domestic dispute between two women which in reality had violated a restraining order as well as the fact that the victims car keys was stolen which she then called the cops and purses Jacob which wasn't disclosed in any of the first four examples) and the fact that the police allegedly told Jacob to "drop the knife" which why they had tasered him in the first place but also that when police told him to stop not not only did Jacob go to the car which had multiple children inside but also that not only was it later revealed that Jacob confessed to having a knife but also said knife was found inside the floorboards of the car (which the alleged sexual assult plus the fact that Jacob was tasered and ignored the cops about to get a knife out of the car was the reason why he was shot which goes directly against example 1 claim of Jacob being unarmed when shot which wasn't corrected in examples 2, 3 and 4) with Channel 4 news also failing to disclose in example 4 that Jacob Blake's father has made several anti-semitic and anti-white comments on Facebook.

Example 5: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lDLtondx66k
Example 6: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_kiUMqHM7Pg
Not only have Channel 4 news decided not to disclose the fact that Kyle Rittenhouse lawyer has claimed that Kyle Rittenhouse was working as a community lifeguard on the day in question to help out clean graffiti and damage from a local highschool (with Channel 4 news also claiming he's a white supremacist even though there has been no evidence to condclude that Kyle was part of a white supremacist group as the local vigantile group The Kenosha Guard has said that they're not certain if Kyle Rittenhouse were part of their group so the claim of white supremacist is unproven at best and baseless and false at worst) whilst also withholding the fact that Kyle received information of a call from a local auto dealership who need help protecting his business from further destruction (where once police dispersing a croward came past Kyle where although they were being taunting and threatened towards Kyle no physical altercation took place) but also that in the guns used in the killing were not only provided to Kyle (which is falsely claimed in example 5 and not corrected in example 6 that the guns used in the killing were from outside the state of Wisconsin as well as not disclosing the fact that Kyle may have a claim to self defence due to how wide Wisconsin state law on concealed carrying in regards to an exception for rifles and shotguns, intended to allow people age 16 and 17 to hunt as well as Channel 4 news not disclosing that Wisconsin is an open carry state) and from within the state of Wisconsin but also that not only did the local police change formation and close down a route which Kyle used to go between the auto mechanic shop and gas station after Kyle went back to the gas station the second time after helping out people who were injured by admistrating first aid or directing them to place which dealt with more serious injuries (and confirming there were no more injuries) Kyle after learning that the police had blocked his path back to the auto shop and complying with them was going back to the gas station where Mr. Rittenhouse was latter seen being chased by an unknown group of people into the parking lot of another dealership several blocks away when Kyle's first victim Joseph Rosebum (who Channel 4 news hid the fact that he was a convicted pedophile and had occured 42 disciplinary infractions in Arizona federal prison) not only taunted at Kyle to shoot him in the head (which channel 4 news also hid the fact of) but also that then at the same time an unknown 3rd party trying to shoot at Kyle (which Channel 4 news did not disclose) which then lead to Kyle not only running for his life but also that whilst being chased down not only was Kyle ambushed by Joseph Rosebum who tried and failed to disarm him (with Channel 4 news also failing to disclosing that something was thrown at Kyle Rittenhouse by Joseph Rosebum) who then got shot and later died, Gaige Grosskreutz and Anthony Hubertried tried to ambush Kyle (who Channel 4 news in example 4 and not corrected in example 5 claim that both were not armed even though video evidence is show with Gauge Grosskreutz having a gun) with Kyle then running for his life who unintentionality tripped over and with two people attacking him on the ground (with Anthony Hubertried using a skateboard to smash Kyle over the head and Gauge Grosskreutz having a gun which Channel 4 news did not disclosing the fact that both Anothh Hubertried and Gauge Grosskreutz were armed with Channel 4 news also falsely claiming that they were both unarmed along with not disclosing the fact that they both had criminal records for battery, strangulation and intoxication with Gauge Grosskreutz having a gun) and just as other people where closing in on Kyle, after Kyle shot twice (one to Anothny Hubertried who later died and one to Gauge Grosskreutz) after calling someone saying that he killed then tried to turn himself in but the police ignored him at the time wanting for him to move from the area (which Channel 4 news did not disclose the fact that he handed himself into Antioch, Illinois police).
The fact that even the local malitia group The Kenosha Guard is uncertain if Kyle Rittenhouse was connected to their group as well as confessing to someone on the phone that he killed someone: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/what-we-know-so-far-about-kyle-rittenhouse-accused-vigilante-in-kenosha-shooting/ar-BB18p9Dw

Not only have Channel 4 news not disclosed the fact that the Kenosha county board of supervisors has written a letter wanting Donald Trump to visit Kenosha and not cancel his visit to Kenosha but also that Channel 4 news not only keeps falsely claiming that Jacob Blake was unarmed but also that it falsely claimed by channel 4 news that Donald Trump wasn't invited to visit Kenosha even though the Kenosha county board of supervisors encouraged him not to cancel his visit to Kenosha.

Not only has Channel 4 news failed to mention that the article they mentioned (written by The Atlantic which alleged trump called WW1 soldiers losers and that he didn't attend the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018 because Trump featured his hair would get wet due to the rain) is not only owned by Steve Jobs widow Laurene Powell Jobs (which she owns The Atlantic via The Emerson Collective) who has donated over $600,000 to Joe Biden's campaign (which in of itself should consistitue a massive conflict of interest) but also that Channel 4 news has falsely claimed that not only Trump wouldn't attend the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018 because Trump feared that his hair would get wet due to the rain (which in reality was due the president’s helicopter Marine One being grounded due to bad weather which was decided by the Marine Corps and the White House Military Office, which then presents the recommendation to the White House in collaboration with the Secret Service,) with Channel 4 news also not disclosing that John Bolton, Jordan Karem, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Hogan Gidley and Keith Kellogg all and out publicily saying that Trump didn't say anything of those things on the day in question since they where with Trump when this allegedly happended but also that both Stephen Miler and Dan Scavino have come out publicaly stating (as well as showing in emails between them and secret and classified internal White House contacts) that Trump wasn't able to attend the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018 because the president’s helicopter Marine One was grounded due to bad weather which was decided by the Marine Corps and the White House Military Office, which then presents the recommendation to the White House in collaboration with the Secret Service and not because Trump feared that his hair would get wet due to the rain as originally claimed in The Atlantic and Examples 8 and 9 with Example 9 also not showing the CCTV evidence from the earthcam in time Square but also didn't show all the footage in terms of the footage shown of the driver going through the protestors which if shown would illustrate that the protestors were blocking the path of the car with the car driver honking his vehicle for the demonstrators to move out of the way which they refuse to do so.

After Example 10 was made and in Example 11 by Channel 4 news not only have Channel 4 news failed to disclose that the bodycam footage leading up to George Floyd has been released (which shows George Floyd not only disobeying police orders and resiting arrest) but also that not only did George Floyd said "I can't breath" whilst police were trying to get him in the back of the police car before asking to be put on the ground but also that not only Channel 4 news has refused to mention that the Minneapolis Police training manual instructs officers on how to subdue violent or resisting suspects by placing their knee on the neck of said suspect but also that it's been revealed that George Floyd's had a fatal fentanyl level of 11 which under normal circumstances would kill someone 2 to 3 times over which Channel 4 news has not disclosed (with all 3 medical reports admitting that he was on drugs durning his death as well as having Covid-19) and that if George Floyd had died somewhere else and there were no contributing circumstances then George Floyd's death would be ruled as an drug overdose death (though the two other memos filed Tuesday from the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office about conversations with Chief Hennepin County Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew could be incomplete because they were awaiting microscopic slides, pictures and other evidence from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s report).

In regards to Cathy Newman in terms of what she did in the video below her actions would fall under both Monroe v Hopkins of 2017 and McAlpine v Bercow of 2013 as not only did Cathy knew what she was saying was wrong but also unlike Monroe V Hopkins of 2017 (where you can at least say that Katie Hopkins intially didn't realise that her comments were addressed to the wrong person) and McAlpine v Bercow of 2013 (where you can say at least that Bercow didn't realise that the information she was intially spreading at the time was false) when push came to shove and CCTV evidence showed that Cathy Newman had lied in her tweets although both Cathy Newman and Dorothy Byrne did later apologise not only did the mosque in question receive death threats but also that Cathy Newman then later did another bad faith interview with Jordan Peterson.

In regards to Jon Snow after the investigation into the pro-brexit rally he was cleared of back in 2019 there may have been a line of inquiry missed in terms of that investigation as back in 2017 allegations came out against Jon Snow where it's alleged that durning Glastonbury (on the day before a mass address was to be made by Jeremy Corbyn) John Snow made disparaging comments about the Tories (which he then said he had no recollection of saying that) which from all the evidence that I can see wasn't investigated by anybody (though Channel 4 did at least remind Jon Snow of of his duties in regards to due impartality) which could constitute evidence of bad character under The Criminal Justice Act of 2003 Chapter 1 evidence of bad character explanatory notes.

In regards to Dorothy Byrne not only was she the person who has overseen seen the potentially misleading news reporting of Channel 4 news and both the Cathy Newman and Jon Snow situations but also back in 2019 durning 2019 durning her MacTaggart lecture Dorothy Byrne had called Boris Johnson both "a coward" (but did also say that Jeremy Corbyn was "a coward") and "a known liar" as well as comparing him to Vladimir Putin (as well as doubling down on her comments after initial comments) which if it was said privately but leaked to the public would be concerning but at the very least you could say that their her own private personal views or if it was a low ranking Channel 4 news you could say she's lacks authority to do newspieces however though this was said in public and was videotaped which not only calls into question due impartality since she's the head of Channel 4 news (which a reasonable person would suspect that Dorothy Buren would order her employees to do more negative stories on Boris Johnson since she has an axe to grind with Boris Johnson) but also that this was said back in August 22-23 2019 about 3-4 months to the 2019 General Election a reasonable person would suspect that Dorothy Buren would order her employees to do more negative stories on Boris Johnson since she has an axe to grind with Boris Johnson along the fact that with the above statement above Boris Johnson it would be in her best interest in protecting people who disavow Boris Johnson which is why there needs to be an independent investigation into Jon Snow's comments at Glastonbury as well as a reinvestigation into his comments at the Pro-brexit rally instead of an internal investigation by Channel 4 news since not only would it be a conflict of interest but also that the investigation would be buried and turned into a complete and utter whitewash.

2020.11.21 16:59 AndrewSiachos The Village (Part 2)

Part (1)
Part 2:
William was standing in front of the mirror, trembling, while his reflection looked back at him. I am losing my mind, he thought.
Only moments ago, he was pacing to and fro, his heart pounding like a drum in his chest. When his eyes spotted the marks around his neck he had almost passed out. Then the cold hand of terror gripped him and filled his brain with adrenaline. The dream came back in random pictures, like tarot cards being revealed on a fortune teller’s table: a man with one blind eye, trees stirring and snakes, lots of them, surrounding him in a ritual-like way. One had broken the circle, wrapped itself around his neck and squeezed until William’s eyeballs almost popped out of their sockets while another towered over him and then lunged forward biting him hard.
He had quickly scanned the rest of his face and neck. No snakebite; only the thick red line the constrictor had left behind. But it was a dream, after all, wasn’t it? He tried to figure out how to explain it, but all the ways he came up with were equally absurd. Do you want to hear a funny story? he imagined himself saying to Cormac. Last night, the strange visitor came under my window. He watered the trees with the brandy he purchased from you. And do you know what’s funnier? The branches turned into snakes and one of them left this souvenir for me. He could even see himself pointing at his scar wide-eyed. And then I woke up, perfectly safe in my cozy bed, the windows were shut, no sign of him, no sign of any serpents in my bedroom, no sign of anything except for this.
Now that the story had been told, even though the audience was only in his head, he found it hard to believe it himself. Any sane person would think that William had either gone over the edge or he had had too much of his own product. Maybe he was going crazy.
He was about to pick a scarf from the suitcase and cover his neck when his attention was caught once more by the other William in the mirror. And that was when the trembling began. There he was with his hands half raised and his face looking in disbelief at a neck – his neck – that was perfectly clean. Where there had been red before, there was white. Where there had been a rough surface, there was only smooth skin.
He was going crazy. Or maybe there was something else behind it. Maybe he had been doped. Yes, yes, that seemed reasonable. That son of the Highlands Maiden brought him a whiskey at dinner, didn’t he? It was all his fault. Who says that he offered him a pure whiskey and not a ticket to the hallucinations ball? He didn’t have time to puzzle over it. Right now there was little he could do; he was alone. All that mattered was to leave this place as soon as he could.
He grabbed his suitcase and went downstairs. As he stepped on the slippery foyer, he noticed Cormac mopping the floor a couple of meters away. He worried if the night of weird events had visited him as well.
Neither was in a mood for chit-chat so they only exchanged a “good morning”. William paid for the accommodation, then he bid Cormac farewell and left the inn walking towards the trees, the trees that had tried to choke him… in his dream. He went on in search of the path that would lead him home.
***
Back at the Highland’s Maiden, Cormac Glas was leaning against the door frame watching William’s back disappear in the woods. When he was sure there was a convenient distance between them, he went back inside. He took the phone from the edge of the counter and dialed a number. After a few rings, a male voice, sharp and authoritative, answered.
‘The man in the newspaper, the one you are looking for.’ Cormac said. ‘He was here. He left five minutes ago.’
The voice asked him a question.
‘Yes, I did. I am sure it’s him. He is going to Inverness. But he won’t be on any train or the highway. If he chooses something high(-ish) it will be the Highlands.’
Cormac Glas heard a click as the man on the other end of the line terminated the call.
***
William soon found the path, or at least what was left of it. Had it not been for the rain, he would have thought that some unknown force had laid down a devastating barrage on the area. Wherever he looked, almost every acre of the ground was covered with mud mixed with fallen leaves. The path was distinguishable only at a little number of spots that had remained intact. William took his chances –the best he could hope for – and tried to follow it. The rain had stopped (which was good) but the sky was still heavily overcast (not good), meaning that anytime he could find himself in the middle of a deluge.
No matter how hard he tried not to think about his troublesome experience, memories kept popping up like ads before his eyes. Enjoy the Scottish countryside. Live an 18th-century experience with our many traditional Highlanders who will show you around while they perform their occult rituals. If you are lucky enough, you are going to have some “breath-taking” moments to recount when you return home – if you return.
An incident emerged from a closet in his mind. He was five or six years old. His mother’s sister, whom William had only seen twice in his life, had come from Edinburgh for what seemed like a visit. After a couple of days William heard his parents talking about an illness; tuberculosis, the doctors said, a difficult word for him to remember back then. He understood that if you had it you coughed a lot but knew no more than that. He kept asking questions but didn’t get a word from anyone, except that auntie is ill and needs to rest. A Sunday morning, as his mother was helping him dress for church, he brought up the question again.
‘There are some things, sweetie, which children cannot understand and therefore need not be troubled with.’ she said.
She had also instructed him not to go into his aunt’s bedroom when she was having a bad time. By bad time she meant the coughing fits his aunt had and were increasing day by day. But William couldn’t oppress his curiosity. An afternoon, during one of those fits, he was outside his aunt’s bedroom. He could hear the thunderous coughs accompanied by a gurgling sound that reminded him of the bubbles he used to make when he blew air into his glass of water. He opened the door a little, then thought better of it and closed it again. His heartbeat increased and found it impossible to leave. It was like some greater power urged him to put his hand on the handle. Another turn and the door opened again. The first thing he first saw was his mother’s back bent over the bed. His eyes traveled down to what he once remembered as his aunt: a pale specter with eyes closed, propped against the pillow, large quantities of blood flowing from her mouth to her chin and finally on her chest. His first impression was that she was already dead – someone has to be dead if there is so much blood around – but then she opened her eyes and looked directly at him as if knowing he was there.
It’s not real, he tried to think, but he couldn’t look away from her eyes that had turned into a bright red and the grin which had settled on her bloody face. He turned around and bolted for his room, upstairs, without looking back but imagining her rising and coming after him. He locked himself in his room and sat on his bed, arms around his knees, waiting to hear slippery footsteps on the stair. There were none.
Aunt Mary died almost a month later and William hoped, as he stood by the open coffin in the church, that her eyes would remain shut forevermore. However, his curiosity and disobedience had been good fuel for a series of nightmares. One night we woke up to find her lying down next to him. The room was totally dark, yet her face had a reddish glow, like her eyes. And that awful grin always there.
Hey Willie!, she said, won’t you give your good auntie Mary a hug? Then she began spewing blood all over the bed, all over him. He woke up amidst screams and when his parents came to comfort him, he told them he had a bad dream about falling from the church’s bell tower. He never told anyone about that day when he had peeked inside the bedroom. Instead, he took the dreadful memory and carefully locked it in a dusty closet of his mind.
He found himself wondering why such memories chose the most irrelevant moments – like now, that William was crossing this storm-beaten part of the world– to break their locks and come howling out. What he had learned over the years was that no lock was strong enough to keep the memories locked away forever, especially the bad ones.
The damage had been great, as William observed. He passed a couple of fallen trees along the way, hearing splinters of wood and bird nests remains crack under his boots. A great number of rocks – some bigger than him – had been carried away by the flood and were planted in the ground, like a mad farmer had decided he could profit better with rocks rather than vegetables. How could someone have survived the night out here? William wondered and his mind flew back to the one-eyed man, soaked from head to toe. He isn’t real, silly! the voice of reason whispered. But he had seen the man, hadn’t he? Hadn’t he come rushing in the inn? Hadn’t he bought some brandy bottles? Hadn’t Cormac talked to William about him, afterward?
Or was William the only one who had actually seen him? Did Cormac say anything about that man at all? Or, perhaps, he went on asking one question after the other and when he received a sharp reply, remained silent? William couldn’t be sure and that irritated him even more.
Suddenly he came to a stop; the path was gone. Hills rose, blocking every way, apart from the one on his left which apparently led to a forest. Perplexed, he hurriedly turned the guide’s pages. There was a detailed map of the whole area, stating that the path should continue straight ahead and take a left turn towards Inverness. William made a mental note to send the writers a letter of complaint regarding their outdated guide. But there was good news too. Hopefully, if he crossed the forest, he would then be within less than a mile from the nearest train station. He decided he already had enough walking and a train sounded like an oasis in the desert. He had to make haste, though, because the afternoon was gone and the evening was coming much faster.
The trees and stones were covered with dew and they would shine under the sun. But the sun was gone too, probably had already touched the west behind the clouds. William passed a large egg-shaped rock on his way and after twenty minutes he passed it again and another twenty minutes later he passed it once more. He was going around in circles. He cursed aloud and kicked a pile of leaves, then put a hand on his head in despair.
‘You seem to be lost.’ a voice said, confirming the facts.
William turned. It was a girl, in her early twenties, holding a basket in her hands. She was wearing a grey frock that matched her eyes but looked too old to be hers. Her long, blond hair fell straight below her shoulders.
‘I think I am.’ William admitted.
‘These woods are quite tricky. A lot of people get lost.’ she said.
‘This might sound ridiculous,’ William said, ‘but where exactly am I?’
The grey eyes found his. William had always thought of grey as a dull, soulless color but on that face… no. There were warmth and kindness in them and they seemed to absorb him. He felt a touch of happiness and an urge to smile. A soft wind whispered; the leaves rustled. The girl smiled first and said: ‘You are in our village’s forest.’
William couldn’t remember noticing any village around these parts in the guide (as if it was the first omission). His only hope now was the train station. ‘Do you know if there is any train station near your village?’ he asked.
‘I have no idea. Our hunters may know better. We are expecting them back shortly. Meanwhile, you can have some rest if you want. You look like you need it.’
He smiled at her. She was right once more and before he realized it, they were walking side by side. She was full of grace, even with that basket bouncing against her lap and William noticed her glancing sideways at him quite a few times.
‘What’s your name?’ she finally asked.
‘William.’ he said. ‘Yours?’
‘Rosie.’
Rosie. A grey rose in a green field, standing out among the others, more radiant and beautiful, drinking avidly from the sun’s rays despite its slightly rough hands and worn out frock.
‘Where do you come from?’ she asked.
‘Inverness.’ he replied. ‘This is where I was going until,’ he waved with his hand, ‘I got lost.’
‘Inverness…’ she said reluctantly, ‘is that a town?’
William felt enchanted by her voice, which sounded like ringing bells in the valley of spring. ‘No.’ he said. ‘It’s bigger than a town actually. It’s a city.’
Rosie asked him a question but his mind was far – to glades with roses bathing in sunlight. Instead, a murmur was what managed to pass through his ears.
‘I beg your pardon?’ he said. ‘Forgive me, but I have traveled a long way and I am very tired.’
She turned to him, her face glowing with enthusiasm. ‘So you are a traveler.’ she said admiringly. ‘We have some travelers in our village too. Technically, they are the hunters, but I like to call them travelers because they get to see lots of other places.’
‘And you don’t?’ William asked.
The glow left but the smile remained. ‘I was born in the village and have lived all my life here. We are not allowed to go too far from it. They say it’s dangerous.’
William wondered who they might be. He took a look at the basket she was carrying. It was covered with a white tablecloth. ‘Would you like me to help you with that?’ he offered. ‘It seems heavy.’
‘No, thank you, I can manage.’ she said. ‘Besides we are almost there.’
From behind the trees, the form of the village began to take shape. A stone arch with no gate marked the entrance. As they passed it, the evening began to give birth to its first shades. The village consisted of a main dirt road lined with narrow, brick houses with wooden tile roofs, each separated from the other by an even narrower alley. Between almost every house and a little in front of them stood old lamp posts as high as the roofs. From one of the first houses, a wooden beam protruded horizontally, sustaining a swing-like construction, filled with flower pots, which swayed lightly. Doves circled it, picked up the flowers’ scent in their wings, and flew away. Further ahead, on the left side of the road, they found a stone well with its own small wooden roof.
‘Our wishing well.’ Rosie explained. ‘Legend has it that if you sit on its rim and say your wish so low that only you can hear it, it will be granted.’
‘I have heard about them.’ William said. ‘My grandma used to tell me a lot of tales. They could grant nearly every wish. As long as you were pure of heart and didn’t wish for gold or power.’ he chuckled.
‘I don’t know about whishes but it never fails us as far as water is concerned. There is plenty of it down there.’
They fell silent. Then, children seemed to appear out of nowhere, laughing and running. Rosie called for them. One by one, they gathered in front of her, like pupils before their teacher. There were twelve of them, four boys and eight girls, wearing clothes as old as Rosie’s frock.
‘You two,’ she said handing over the basket to two of the boys. ‘Take this to Mr. MacBeathag’s house and put it on the kitchen table.’ Then she addressed the other two: ‘You go ahead and light the lanterns. It is getting dark and we need light, don’t we?’
The boys nodded eagerly and left. ‘Now, young ladies,’ Rosie continued, ‘will you be so kind as to go and help with the dinner preparation and I will join you soon.’
And so they were dismissed.
‘They are so cute, aren’t they?’ William remarked.
‘The most innocent creatures.’ she said with a sigh. ‘A child’s heart bears only kindness and goodwill.’ She turned to William. ‘Come.’
They continued up the road. At the end of it, William’s eyes fell on a structure that ages ago must have been once must have been the village’s church. From the size of it, it looked more like a small cathedral than a common church. It stood there, a hollow shell, an iron fence rusted away around it. They stopped before it. The pointed, gothic windows stained and dusty and William guessed it would be impossible to see the interior even if you pressed your face against them. The top of the bell tower had a large gaping hole. It was an image you couldn’t expect to see in a thriving village. All around was life, apart from this place that looked dead somehow.
‘Saint Andrew’s church.’ Rosie said. ‘It is more beautiful on the inside, although I would not advise you to attempt it. It hasn’t been looked after for a lot of years.’
She saw curiosity gleaming in his eyes.
‘We are religious if that’s what you are wondering’ she said. ‘Once, we had our own priest. But since he passed away, none of the men is interested in being ordained. So, we perform our religious duties in the open, beneath the sky.’
They turned left and Rosie led him to a barren field not far from the dirt road. There was a long table, around which three women were busy cutting cabbages, carrots, and other vegetables while the little girls carried the portions inside a small wooden house nearby – a hut. Smoke was rising from the hut’s chimney and somewhere inside might be a cauldron over the fire and delicious food boiling in it. One of the women noticed William and Rosie approaching and didn’t avert her eyes. The other two looked briefly at them and went on with their work, giving instructions to the girls in the meantime.
‘Hello, Mrs. Smith!’ Rosie said.
Mrs. Smith remained silent, but her eyes said: Who is this stranger and what business does he have here?
Rosie introduced William.
‘Nice to meet you ma’am.’ he said offering his hand.
Rut Smith was a sixty years old plump woman, with red cheeks and white fluffy hair. Her face was kind when it wasn’t troubled by suspicion, as it was now. She wiped her hands on her apron but didn’t offer any of them in return. She waited instead.
‘William has traveled a long way…’ Rosie began.
‘I see!’ Mrs. Smith said.
‘He was going home when he got lost.’
‘And where is that if I may ask?’
‘Inverness ma’am.’ William intervened. ‘It’s a city not far from here’. (according to an unreliable guide of course.)
‘I know what Inverness is.’ Mrs. Smith said, putting her hands on her waist and knitting her eyebrows. She reminded William of a nanny who has caught her child with its hands in the honey jar.
‘I thought,’ Rosie resumed, ‘we could wait for Mr. MacBeathag and the other to return and maybe they could guide him on his way.’
‘I am afraid I will have to disappoint you.’ Mrs. Smith said. ‘I received a letter earlier from Mr. MacBeathag in which he says they are not to be expected until tomorrow morning.’
Rosie’s eyes fell on the ground, and then she looked back up at Mrs. Smith. ‘Well… Perhaps William could stay here for the night and –’
‘What?!’ Mrs. Smith exclaimed as if Rosie had just expressed her wish to dance naked around the village. ‘Rosie, dear, you are very well aware of our rules about…’ she stole a glance at William, ‘…about outsiders.’
‘Yes, but soon it’ll be full dark. We can’t leave him wandering out there.’
Mrs. Smith sighed heavily. ‘You know this is not my decision to make. This is a matter for Mr. MacBeathag.’
‘However,’ Rosie said, ‘in his absence, and with the rest of the men gone with him, you are the one in authority.’
Rosie could see by Mrs. Smith’s expression that she was taken aback. Probably she never would have thought it that way. After a few seconds, she said: ‘Let it be. I suppose he can have the spare room. But you, lassie, will have to answer for this to Mr. MacBeathag.’ However, the true meaning was: It’s your own slender neck you put at risk, not mine.
‘Thank you, ma’am. I am very much indebted.’ William said.
‘Not to me.’ she said still looking at Rosie. ‘You know where to go. Just make sure there are only clothes in that suitcase.’
On their way to the-spare-room, William felt a sting of guilt.
‘Listen,’ he told Rosie, ‘I am sorry for the discomfort I’ve caused. I don’t want you to get in trouble because of me. I will find some other place.’
‘No, there is no problem.’ she said, although the shadows that had found their way in her eyes meant otherwise. ‘It’s just that we are a little different, as you might have noticed.’
William waited for her to go on.
‘There is a reason why we have chosen this way of living. We are not concerned about the rest of the world and we don’t want the rest of the world to be concerned about us. I was born here and haven’t seen the rest of the world. The children you saw before haven’t either. But a lot of our ancestors, like Mr. MacBeathag, our leader, and Mrs. Smith have lived in major cities before they came here.
‘What I have heard from their stories is that the outside world is filled with vile people and violence. My own parents were killed, I never learned how, before this village was built. So, our ancestors gathered here, away from everything, and created our society. Everything we need, we provide for ourselves. We don’t have any dealings with the outside world. That’s the reason why many of us are so suspicious about…’
‘Outsiders.’ William said, watching her cheeks fill with red.
They crossed the main road and passed the first row of houses on the right when the delicate notes of a violin reached their ears. Rosie’s smile reappeared. ‘Ah, Mr. Hudson, our teacher. He was the one who taught us how to read and write. He is quite old, I believe he is the oldest villager, and incapable of a lot of movement so he has given in his greatest passion: music. Now, Mrs. Smith has assumed the teacher’s role.’
The evening was closing in and the lamp posts were lighted one after the other. A nightingale accompanied Mr. Hudson’s violin.
‘Is Mr. MacBeathag as hard as Mrs. Smith?’ William asked. He believed he could guess the answer.
‘They are similar in many ways,’ Rosie said, ‘but also they have their respective virtues. He will listen to what you have to say and hopefully will help you.’
‘And if he chooses not to?’ he asked, sounding slightly concerned.
‘We will figure out something.’ she said but not reassuringly.
They stopped before the door of a small wooden house, probably the smallest in the village.
They reached a small wooden house, probably the smallest in the village.
‘Here we are.’ Rosie said.
The interior was so small it could hardly fit more than two persons. There was a bed that spanned from one corner to the other and opposite to its side were four or five broomsticks, placed against the wall behind two iron buckets.
‘I am sorry.’ she said humbly.
‘No, I should be thanking you.’ William said, ‘it’s the best given the circumstances.’
‘Good. You will have to excuse me again, but…’ she said looking at his suitcase.
‘Oh, yes,’ he said. ‘Mrs. Smith’s orders.’
They both felt embarrassed as Rosie took his suitcase and began checking its contents. Out of courtesy he turned around and let her finish.
‘Everything looks fine.’ Rosie said after a while.
William turned and took his suitcase from her outstretched hand.
‘I suppose I will let you settle and we will meet later.’ she said and turned to leave but stood at the threshold, her back turned to him and her hands clasped in front of her. ‘William I want you to promise me something.’
Their eyes met once more and William’s mind sunk into the vast grey horizon.
‘What?’ his own voice surprised him.
‘That no matter what you have no ill thoughts and mean us no harm.’
It was the first time William felt like watching himself from another point of view as if he had separated from his body and was floating around. He couldn’t control his lips but heard himself say: ‘I promise.’
***
At the boundaries of the village’s forest, two men in grey suits and coats uniforms halted their horses to a stop. One had long black hair, loosely tied back, and a face that looked neither young nor old. The other had shorter, chestnut hair with a parting and a thin mustache.
‘He must have gone in.’ said Tobias Black, the man with the long hair. He pulled his lower lip inside and covered his teeth as he often used to do.
‘Are we absolutely sure it’s him, sir?’ asked Eustace Westwood looking nervously around.
‘Do you see anyone else around here?’ Tobias asked and dismounted. The little light that remained allowed him to take a few steps forward. He squatted and scrutinized the muddy ground. ‘There is only a pair of fresh footprints pointing to the village’s direction.’ He came back to his horse. ‘It’s him.’
‘Damn him.’ Eustace said as Tobias grabbed the saddle and pulled himself back up. ‘And damn this whole business. We shouldn’t have let him go that far.’
Tobias said nothing. He was looking right in front of him as though he could see beyond the forest.
Eustace swallowed. ‘Sir… Are we going to follow him in?’
‘No.’ Tobias answered without hesitation. ‘We have risked enough by coming here at this time. The night is upon us. I don’t think he will risk any movement in the night. Right now, there are two things we can do. For the night he won’t go any further that’s for sure. We must have him by tomorrow morning.’
He guided his horse away and Eustace followed him close.
‘And the second?’ he asked.
‘Pray to God.’
End Of Part Two

2020.11.20 19:59 Skraxx Let's talk Rockies trades with the Nolan rumours

Since reporter Jim Bowden said that Arenado WILL be a Dodger by the end of the offseason... Let's actually look at the Rockies trade history:

ROCKIES TRADES IN OFFSEASONS:

Year (Trade #) COL Gets Opponent Gets
2015 (1) Shane Carle Rob Scahill (to PIT)
2015 (2) Noel Cuevas Juan Nicasio (to LAD)
2015 (3) Jairo Diaz Josh Rutledge (to LAA)
2015 (4) Austin House + Cash Mark Canha (to OAK)
2015 (5) David Hale & Gus Schlosser Chris O'Dowd & Jose Briceno (to ATL)
2015 (6) Tyler Ybarra Jason Aquino (to TOR)
2016 (7) Yency Almonte Tommy Kahnle (to CWS)
2016 (8) Wander Cabrera Rex Brothers (to CHC)
2016 (9) German Marquez & Jake McGee Corey Dickerson & Kevin Padlo (to TB)
2017 (10) James Farris Eddie Butler (to CHC)
For comparison's sake, let's go ahead and compare with another team. Let's see how the Cincinnati Reds, a team that hasn't really had the same success in the same five-year span stacks up:
Year (Trade #) CIN Gets Opponent Gets
2015 (1) Matt Magill Chris Heisey (to LAD)
2015 (2) Anthony DeSclafani & Chad Wallach Mat Latos (to CIN)
2015 (3) Eugenio Suarez & Jonathan Crawford Alfredo Simon (to DET)
2015 (4) Marlon Byrd + Cash Ben Lively (to PHI)
2016 (5) Brandon Dixon, Jose Peraza, & Scott Schebler Todd Frazier (to CWS)
2016 (6) Eric Jagielo, Caleb Cotham, Rookie Davis, and Tony Renda Aroldis Chapman (to NYY)
2017 (7) Josh VanMeter Luis Torrens (to CIN)
2017 (8) Zeek White, Austin Brice, & Luis Castillo Dan Straily (to MIA)
2017 (9) Carlos Portuondo & Andrew McKirahan Brandon Phillips & Kevin Franklin (to ATL)
2018 (10) PTBNL/Cash Brad Keller (to KC)
2019 (11) Tanner Roark Tanner Rainey (to WSH)
2019 (12) Kyle Farmer, Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig, Alex Wood + Cash Jeter Downs, Josiah Gray, & Homer Bailey (to LAD)
2019 (13) Sonny Gray Shed Long + Draft Pick (to NYY)
2020 (14) Jose De Leon Brian O'Grady (to TB)
The Rockies have made a total of 10 trades in the offseason. More than half of those are in 2015, and he hasn't made a single offseason trade since 2017. The Reds haven't necessarily made much more trades, but they've at the very least been active every offseason.
Does Arenado get traded? Maybe it could happen at the deadline, as Bridich does those trades. Though to say it'll happen in the offseason? It's an incredibly low chance, as you're expecting Jeff Bridich to something other than assuming he did everything right and making no changes to his team. If I wanted to trade for a 3B, the Cubs are probably much more willing to talk with you. If you really want Nolan, wait until the deadline to rip Bridich off.

2020.11.19 22:08 FlynnPatrick My Top 301 Players in the NBA Post-Draft (Rookies Included)

I recently finished ranking the top 500 players in the NBA of 2020. As we are now heading into next season with a whole batch of rookies, I have revised the list to include players just drafted last night.
Players announced as being out for the season already will not count (Jonathan Isaac i.e.). I am interested to see what you guys' think.
I also want to emphasize I took all feedback and criticism to make this list better. I hope you enjoy.
1 LeBron James
2 Giannis Antetkounmpo
3 Kevin Durant
4 Luka Doncic
5 Stephen Curry
6 Kawhi Leonard
7 James Harden
8 Anthony Davis
9 Damian Lillard
10 Nikola Jokic
The biggest news here is KD entering the ranking once again. He immediately makes Brooklyn title contenders and he will be hungry for a comeback trail once the NBA starts up again. Stephen Curry's ranking also puts him back in the top 5, and if fully healthy, he could be an MVP candidate.
11 Jimmy Butler
12 Devin Booker
13 Jayson Tatum
14 Bradley Beal
15 Karl Anthony Towns
16 Kyrie Irving
17 Joel Embiid
18 Brandon Ingram
19 Ben Simmons
20 Jamal Murray
After further review, Simmons jumps into my top 20. He can't shoot but he is elite in every other area of basketball and that counts for something. Jimmy Butler finished 3rd on my 2020 list, but moves down a bit as it will be more difficult for him to reach the heights achieved in 2020 next year.
21 Trae Young
22 Bam Adebayo
23 Paul George
24 Chris Paul
25 Donovan Mitchell
26 Kemba Walker
27 Rudy Gobert
28 Zach LaVine
29 Russell Westbrook
30 Pascal Siakam
Gobert was ranked too low on my original rating, and the defensive force moves into the top 30. Klay Thompson was also originally ranked 26th, but with the season ending news today he was taken off the list.
31 Khris Middleton
32 Kristaps Porzingis
33 D'Angelo Russell
34 Domantas Sabonis
35 Kyle Lowry
36 CJ McCollum
37 Jaylen Brown
38 DeMar DeRozan
39 DeAndre Ayton
40 LaMarcus Aldridge
Not too much change in this area from last year. Ayton moves from 44th to 39th as I think he can progress into a fringe all-star player in 2021.
41 Nikola Vucevic
42 Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
43 Tobias Harris
44 Kevin Love
45 Jrue Holiday
46 Ja Morant
47 Zion Williamson
48 De'Aaron Fox
49 John Collins
50 TJ Warren
SGA moves up 3 spots, Warren down from 41 to 50. SGA is now the centerpiece of OKC's franchise and they will have an interesting run in 2021.
51 Danilo Gallinari
52 Collin Sexton
53 Andre Drummond
54 Fred VanVleet
55 Evan Fournier
56 Blake Griffin
57 Kelly Oubre Jr
58 Caris LeVert
59 Buddy Hield
60 Jusuf Nurkic
I believe Drummond will have positive value for the Cavs in 2021. His game isn't best suited for today's era but he has talent regardless and with him/Kevin Love fully healthy they can form one of the most underrated front courts in the NBA to pair with Collin Sexton, who cracks the list at 52.
61 Montrezl Harrell
62 Jaren Jackson Jr
63 Bojan Bogdanovic
64 John Wall
65 Dennis Schroder
66 Spencer Dinwiddie
67 Malcolm Brogdon
68 Hassan Whiteside
69 Andrew Wiggins
70 Gordon Hayward
I expect Wall to be explosive and one of the most valuable point guards in the league upon return. All signs point to him being able to participate in the start of the season and it will be interesting to see how he blends in with a Wizards team that has struggled to find an identity.
71 Jonas Valanciunas
72 Al Horford
73 Lou Williams
74 Terry Rozier
75 Lonzo Ball
76 Bogdan Bogdanovic
77 Harrison Barnes
78 Devonte' Graham
79 LaMelo Ball
80 Victor Oladipo
Probably a hot take but I think prime Oladipo has passed. I understand he was injured but the report about him reaching out to other teams was a red flag and the energy of that is still around. LaMelo is the 1st rookie to crack the top 100. He is the unquestioned leader of the Hornets at just 19 years old. MJ believes he has something special and I do too.
81 Derrick Rose
82 Tyler Herro
83 Anthony Edwards
84 Ricky Rubio
85 Joe Harris
86 Clint Capela
87 DeJounte Murray
88 JJ Redick
89 Myles Turner
90 Aaron Gordon
Edwards fits well with Minnesota. He has the shooting form to do well, his efficiency will go up from college than compared to the NBA. Being the 3rd scoring option is less pressure than being constantly double teamed at Georgia. I moved Aaron Gordon back into the top 100, he was shining at times and the Jonathan Isaac injury means he should have more primary scoring opportunities.
91 Serge Ibaka
92 Duncan Robinson
93 Marcus Smart
94 Davis Bertans
95 Malik Beasley
96 James Wiseman
97 Tim Hardaway Jr
98 Steven Adams
99 Will Barton
100 Goran Dragic
Wiseman is the 3rd and last rookie to make the top 100. The Warriors' system fits him nicely and he will be relied upon more now that Klay Thompson is out for the year. Malik Beasley and Tim Hardaway Jr are two players who looked like studs sometime and it will be interesting to see what the Wolves do with this valuable piece in Malik after drafting a player at the same position 1st overall.
101 Jarrett Allen
102 Brook Lopez
103 Norman Powell
104 Mike Conley
105 Julius Randle
106 Carmelo Anthony
107 Eric Bledsoe
108 Marcus Morris
109 George Hill
110 Josh Richardson
Carmelo, Jarrett Allen (barely), Eric Bledsoe, Marcus Morris, and Norman Powell all fall outside of the top 100 they were in on my original list. I do like the Josh Richardson for Dallas and think he can work his way back up.
111 Joe Ingles
112 Jordan Clarkson
113 Paul Millsap
114 Brandon Clarke
115 Tristan Thompson
116 Seth Curry
117 Draymond Green
118 Lauri Markkanen
119 Terrence Ross
120 Jae Crowder
Now fully healthy and ready to go, Draymond moves back up the list. I still have him outside of the top 100 but with better pieces around Golden State next year he can progress his value.
121 Luke Kennard
122 Robert Covington
123 DeAndre Jordan
124 Dwight Howard
125 Patrick Beverley
126 Tyrese Haliburton
127 Jerami Grant
128 Dillon Brooks
129 Derrick White
130 Mitchell Robinson
Tyrese Haliburton was a steal for the Kings. They took the best player available, I could see him as a pretty nice 6th man as a rookie. Jordan, Howard, and Robinson are all centers who can help teams win games but are one-dimensional offensively and their upward mobility is limited from here (Robinson is still young though).
131 Nemanja Bjelica
132 Richaun Holmes
133 Larry Nance Jr
134 Alec Burks
135 PJ Washington
136 Rajon Rondo
137 Derrick Favors
138 Aron Baynes
139 Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
140 Josh Hart
Baynes is likely to not return to Phoenix, but he is a fascinating player to watch. Alec Burks had a very underrated year as he showed nice scoring ability and from what I've read the league probably values him less than I do but if you can get him on a discount contract he is a steal.
141 Patty Mills
142 OG Anunoby
143 Markelle Fultz
144 Christian Wood
145 Rudy Gay
146 Kendrick Nunn
147 Tomas Satoransky
148 Trevor Ariza
149 Coby White
150 Gary Harris
Harris has taken a freefall the last 2 years, and he went from a bonafide top 100 player to being well outside. If the Nuggets have to choose between Barton and Harris I take Barton. Christian Wood is a hot free agent name who I think is being overrated as he has a long way to go on defense but regardless he is fun as hell to watch on the offensive end. Markelle Fultz has worked his way up from bust to solid player and that is more than he could have hoped in 2020. Can he make himself a top 100 talent? The backcourt of him and Cole Anthony is interesting.
151 Cedi Osman
152 Danny Green
153 RJ Barrett
154 Bobby Portis
155 Rui Hachimura
156 Thomas Bryant
157 Thaddeus Young
158 Wendell Carter Jr
159 Deni Avidja
160 PJ Tucker
I had to contemplate for a while but I really like the Deni pick for DC. They needed a player with his skillset at the small forward position and I think he is in an ideal position to utilize his abilities.
161 Cody Zeller
162 Kyle Kuzma
163 Jeff Teague
164 Daniel Theis
165 Kevin Huerter
166 Dorian Finney-Smith
167 Doug McDermott
168 Michael Porter Jr
169 Eric Paschall
170 Mikal Bridges
MPJ can score, no question about it. His playmaking still has a long ways to go before being anything more than an x-factor though. I could see Mikal moving up significantly, his two-way potential is real and he's one of the most underrated defenders in the league.
171 Gary Trent Jr
172 Justin Holiday
173 Ivica Zubac
174 Marc Gasol
175 Deandre Hunter
176 Aaron Holiday
177 Miles Bridges
178 Furkan Korkmaz
179 Elfrid Payton
180 Monte Morris
181 Bryn Forbes
182 Mason Plumlee
183 Ben McLemore
184 Nerlens Noel
185 Rodney Hood
186 DJ Augustin
187 Maxi Kleber
188 Royce O'Neale
189 Terence Davis
190 Danuel House
191 Onyeka Okongwu
192 Eric Gordon
193 Enes Kanter
194 Kris Dunn
195 Shake Milton
After Nicolas Batum, Eric Gordon probably has the worst contract in the NBA currently. Okongwu is the 5th rookie to crack this list. He is a valuable commodity on the 2nd string Hawks behind Collins/Capela. He's in a low pressure situation to learn which I like.
196 Marvin Bagley
197 Dario Saric
198 Reggie Jackson
199 Otto Porter Jr
200 Jabari Parker
Is it too early to say that Bagley is a bust? Well even if he plays decent the question remains if he can ever match the talent of the player taken after him. There's more hope for this number 2 pick than Jabari Parker for example though.
201 Austin Rivers
202 Markieff Morris
203 Obi Toppin
204 Bruce Brown
205 Ish Smith
206 Jordan McLaughlin
207 Jalen Smith
208 Cameron Johnson
209 Jeremy Lamb
210 Luguentz Dort
I like the fit for Toppin and Smith. Toppin openly wanted to play for the Knicks and the man was college basketball's player of the year for a reason. Smith plugs a hole at the power forward position in Phoenix and this franchise is starting to build an attractive identity. Would not be surprised if Smith starts from day 1.
211 Glenn Robinson III
212 Isaac Okoro
213 Killian Hayes
214 Kelly Olynyk
215 Dwight Powell
216 Jalen Brunson
217 Avery Bradley
218 Langston Galloway
219 Kyle Krover
220 Svi Mykhailiuk
Okoro was an intriguing pick for Cleveland. His college coach Bruce Pearl raved about him and I think there will be a bit of a learning curve but a top 100 player finish in 2022-2023 would not surprise me.
221 Tony Snell
222 Mike Scott
223 James Johnson
224 Gorgui Dieng
225 Trey Lyles
226 Lonnie Walker IV
227 Troy Brown Jr
228 Devin Vassell
229 TJ McConnell
230 Delon Wright
I like Walker a lot. He just needs to put the pieces together and keep learning. Devin Vassell is an underrated offensive threat and those two could be starting plenty of games together in the near future.
231 E'Twaun Moore
232 Meyers Leonard
233 Omari Spellman
234 Willie Cauley Stein
235 Keldon Johnson
236 Matisse Thybulle
237 JaMychal Green
238 Jordan McRae
239 Bismack Biyombo
240 Jahlil Okafor
241 Damyean Dotson
242 Tyus Jones
243 Kevin Porter Jr
244 Taurean Prince
245 Trey Burke
246 Wesley Matthews
247 Cam Reddish
248 Malik Monk
249 Jarrett Culver
250 Dante Exum
A lot of players in this range who had crazy potential a few years ago but flamed out (Cauley-Stein, Exum, Monk). Talented enough to be in the league even 5 more years or so but will they ever reach any of the potential they once had? Monk is still only 22 and probably has the best chance. Maybe LaMelo will help him.
251 Alex Len
252 Maurice Harkless
253 Georges Niang
254 Emmanuel Mudiay
255 Damion Lee
256 Darius Garland
257 Damian Jones
258 Cory Joseph
259 Patrick Williams
260 JaVale McGee
The Patrick Williams pick reminded me of Marvin Williams in 2005. Both came off the bench, drafted on purely potential, did decent in the NBA. Could last 15 years even like Williams did, but all-star? He has a long way to go to be a huge focal point. 4 was too high for him, it was a bad pick. And I don't say that often.
261 Kevon Looney
262 Jaxson Hayes
263 De'Anthony Melton
264 Grayson Allen
265 Alex Caruso
266 Frank Kaminsky
267 Landry Shamet
268 Garrett Temple
269 Ersan Ilyasova
270 Harry Giles
271 Zach Collins
272 Justise Winslow
273 Jeff Green
274 Mohamed Bamba
275 Jakob Poeltl
276 Jake Layman
277 Brad Wanamaker
278 Tyrese Maxey
279 Vernon Carey Jr
280 Reggie Bullock
Vernon Carey Jr will have a learning curve but I think he landed in Charlotte in an excellent position to thrive and I think the Hornets won this draft. His conditioning can be improved but the talent is very clearly there, does he want it? If he does we are talking all-star potential.
281 Isaac Bonga
282 Nicolo Melli
283 Josh Okogie
284 Rondae Hollis Jefferson
285 Naz Reid
286 Garrison Matthews
287 Marco Belinelli
288 Tony Bradley
289 Ky Bowman
290 Robin Lopez
291 Derrick Jones Jr
292 Timothe Luwawu
293 Anfernee Simons
294 Wesley Iwundu
295 James Ennis
296 Moritz Wagner
297 Jaden McDaniels
298 Boban Marjanovic
299 Andre Iguodala
300 Hamidou Diallo
301 Cole Anthony
I think Anthony is going to be better than people think. Dude is a baller. But I don't think Orlando was the best situation for him. He's gonna be a starting talent and I think eventually the Magic will have to choose between him or Fultz. The flip side is that he doesn't have to carry the weight of the franchise on his back and will get a chance to progress smoothly.

That's it for today, let me know what you guys think in the comments. I understand my top 500 players list was very controversial and I listen to all of the feedback. Cheers!

2020.11.18 23:32 Enough-Oil-2003 An expose into UK media corruption part 1 of 2

Dear WayOfTheBern
I John Smith (not my real name just an alias and not a whistle-blower but instead a private citizen via my redacted email address) has already sent the email in question to Jordan Petersons wife, Evening Standard, Rudy Giuliani, WayOfTheBern (who I originally sent to WayOfTheBern privatelyfor feedback purposes), LBC, Henry Jackson Society, Eric July, Telegraph inquiries, Julia Hartley Brewer, Leader of the house of commons cabinet office, Quilliam foundation (hoping that would reach Majjid Nawza), Treasuray Solicitor, Tulsi Gabbard, Tim Pool, Whistleblower, The MP who is currently The Attorney General for The United Kingdom at the time of this email, Daily express, Daily Mail, Julia Hartley Brewer, Jonathan Pie, Iain Dale, free speech union, Pierce Bainbridge, L lin Wood, Jonathan Guills, Telegraph investigations departement, Lindsay Hole, Kemi Badenoch, Jacob Rees Mogg, defund the BBC (since Calvin Robinson works there hoping that the email in question is referred to Calvin Robinson), Guido Fawkes, Daily express, The Crown Prosecution Service (specifically their inquiries departement), The Attorney General office, The Advertising Standards Authority, Ofcom, The Spectator UK, The Spectator USA and The Spectator Australia, Douglas Murray (who I was hoping that if The Spectator did not see the email in question that since Douglas Murray works for The Spectator, Douglas Murray would notify The Spectator of the email in question), The Private Eye, The equalities office for the United Kingdom, MP Desmond Swayne, I news editorial division, I news reader division, Calvin Robinson, Konstantin Kisin, Count Dankulas Lawyer, Crimebodge, CPS London Magistratex and Solicitor Ian Guld who all of them have not reply me back (or in the case of Gudio Fawkes refuse to read the email in question below due to its length or in the case of CPS London Magistrates life gets in the way and I get nervous due to me not being certain if this was the right address or due to previous experiences if I was going to be taken seriously) but thought you might be interested in as it deals with intustonlized misconduct and corruption.
Keep in mind this I don't not wish to make any personal finical gain out of this and that for this to be referred to cps as soon as possible as these potentially illegal pratices as stated within the email in question has lead to some personal to me defndning abhorrent things (I.e. Jacob blake) and believing in falsehoods.
I was originally going to do this as one big post but dye to reddit 40000 characters on post policy one had to split this into 2 parts.
My hope for this email is to kick-start an investigation which can then not only be published but also be referred to the likes of CPS for further investigation which can result in potential prosecutions as further explained in the email in question not only can these illegal/misleading pratices affect and decive people but also can cause them into defending people who have committed abhorrent things.
For The Private eye, The Spectator and Douglas Murray I sent this a list of commands offering this story but to no avail with these list of 8 demands:
  1. To be a able to send my investigation annoymusly without fear of reprisal.
  2. If it is publishded in one of your issues then for it to be done in both of your magazines and in the case of The Private Eye as a special report similar to that of the expose of the post office back in March/April of 2020.
  3. For this to be kept under wraps and not to be reported in either magizine until all investigations and trials have been completed.
  4. For this to be considered my extremely early entry for the next Paul Foot award.
  5. For this to be sent to both the head of The Crown Prosecution Service and The Attorney General of The United Kingdom (as well as their respective body's).
  6. For both Ian Hislop and Andrew Neil to be kept away from this due to it relating to a former employer which would consistitue a conflict of interest if either of them got involved in this.
  7. If this does lead to legal action being taken then for me to be able to testify anonymously due to me being both underage (17 at the time of writing this email) and autistic.
  8. For Ofcom, The Crown Prosecution Service and for The Attorney Geneal to be questioned on why I wasnt contacted back about this.
Keep in mind this since the original version of the email in question was made and sent I've encountered even more evidence of misconduct by the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 4 news and a new offender in the form of sainsbury's so the email in question is to be treated similar to that of the theratical cut of a film as I'm developing what amounts to the directors cut of the email in question.
If there's things that are outdated in the email in question that's because this was sent originally on the 8th of September 2020 so information should be correct at the time of the email in question.
Email in question:
Dear Ofcom, Advertising Standards Authority and Crown Prosecution Service
I am writing this to present evidence which can easily lead to an investigation into multiple people and organisations with those being: Naga Munchetty, Lewis Goodall, Channel 4 news, Cathy Newman, John Snow, Dorothy Byrne The Guardian, Channel 4 and the BBC.
In regards to Naga Munchetty she has recently be found to not only have been paid to do a speech with Rollys Royce durning a virtual conference but also that she did consult the BBC first and actively tried to hide it so it would be wise to see if she's been involved in any other finical conflicts of interest recently.
Naga Munchetty caught trying to hide a massive conflict of interest in regards to her speaker role with Rolls Royce: https://inews.co.uk/news/naga-munchetty-conflict-interest-warning-bbc-moonlighting-aston-martin-pr-video-574797
In regards to Lewis Goodall (who by the way has worked for progressive think tank Institute for Public Policy Research in the past as well as working inside 10 Downing Street under Theresa May before working back in brodcasting) has recently did a front page cover story for The New Statesman (who by the way on their website says their liberal and progressive) which is not only a conflict of interest in regards to due impartiality but also a finical conflict of interest since Lewis Goodall is being paid as a guest columnist to critize the government even though under 15.3.17 of the BBC's impartality guidelines bans anyone from expressing strong views, advocating against a policy and exhorting change in a policy.
How even the Institute for Public Policy own website describe themselves as a progressive think tank: https://www.ippr.org/

In regards to Channel 4 news I have been noticing that they've have been omitting information from their news reports (as well as not correcting errors from previous news reports which if included said information would change the entire context of their news story. In order to give you an idea of this I shall use 11 examples to prove my point.
Example 1: https://www.channel4.com/news/protests-erupt-in-wisconsin-after-police-shooting-of-black-man
Example 2: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QoMKHlciP-4#
Example 3 (same as example 2 but only 6 minutes instead of 10 minutes): https://www.channel4.com/news/former-trump-adviser-defends-wisconsin-police-who-shot-jacob-blake-in-the-back
Example 4 (same video as example 11): https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=v4metQOo67I
Not only have Channel 4 news decided not to disclose the fact that in all of the first four examples that the police were there to arrest Jacob Blake for allegedly committing sexual assult (as well as having an arrest warrant for a previous felony sexual assult charge) minutes before the police arrived on scene (which is falsely claimed in example 1 that Jacob was there to break up a domestic dispute between two women which in reality had violated a restraining order as well as the fact that the victims car keys was stolen which she then called the cops and purses Jacob which wasn't disclosed in any of the first four examples) and the fact that the police allegedly told Jacob to "drop the knife" which why they had tasered him in the first place but also that when police told him to stop not not only did Jacob go to the car which had multiple children inside but also that not only was it later revealed that Jacob confessed to having a knife but also said knife was found inside the floorboards of the car (which the alleged sexual assult plus the fact that Jacob was tasered and ignored the cops about to get a knife out of the car was the reason why he was shot which goes directly against example 1 claim of Jacob being unarmed when shot which wasn't corrected in examples 2, 3 and 4) with Channel 4 news also failing to disclose in example 4 that Jacob Blake's father has made several anti-semitic and anti-white comments on Facebook.

Example 5: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lDLtondx66k
Example 6: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_kiUMqHM7Pg
Not only have Channel 4 news decided not to disclose the fact that Kyle Rittenhouse lawyer has claimed that Kyle Rittenhouse was working as a community lifeguard on the day in question to help out clean graffiti and damage from a local highschool (with Channel 4 news also claiming he's a white supremacist even though there has been no evidence to condclude that Kyle was part of a white supremacist group as the local vigantile group The Kenosha Guard has said that they're not certain if Kyle Rittenhouse were part of their group so the claim of white supremacist is unproven at best and baseless and false at worst) whilst also withholding the fact that Kyle received information of a call from a local auto dealership who need help protecting his business from further destruction (where once police dispersing a croward came past Kyle where although they were being taunting and threatened towards Kyle no physical altercation took place) but also that in the guns used in the killing were not only provided to Kyle (which is falsely claimed in example 5 and not corrected in example 6 that the guns used in the killing were from outside the state of Wisconsin as well as not disclosing the fact that Kyle may have a claim to self defence due to how wide Wisconsin state law on concealed carrying in regards to an exception for rifles and shotguns, intended to allow people age 16 and 17 to hunt as well as Channel 4 news not disclosing that Wisconsin is an open carry state) and from within the state of Wisconsin but also that not only did the local police change formation and close down a route which Kyle used to go between the auto mechanic shop and gas station after Kyle went back to the gas station the second time after helping out people who were injured by admistrating first aid or directing them to place which dealt with more serious injuries (and confirming there were no more injuries) Kyle after learning that the police had blocked his path back to the auto shop and complying with them was going back to the gas station where Mr. Rittenhouse was latter seen being chased by an unknown group of people into the parking lot of another dealership several blocks away when Kyle's first victim Joseph Rosebum (who Channel 4 news hid the fact that he was a convicted pedophile and had occured 42 disciplinary infractions in Arizona federal prison) not only taunted at Kyle to shoot him in the head (which channel 4 news also hid the fact of) but also that then at the same time an unknown 3rd party trying to shoot at Kyle (which Channel 4 news did not disclose) which then lead to Kyle not only running for his life but also that whilst being chased down not only was Kyle ambushed by Joseph Rosebum who tried and failed to disarm him (with Channel 4 news also failing to disclosing that something was thrown at Kyle Rittenhouse by Joseph Rosebum) who then got shot and later died, Gaige Grosskreutz and Anthony Hubertried tried to ambush Kyle (who Channel 4 news in example 4 and not corrected in example 5 claim that both were not armed even though video evidence is show with Gauge Grosskreutz having a gun) with Kyle then running for his life who unintentionality tripped over and with two people attacking him on the ground (with Anthony Hubertried using a skateboard to smash Kyle over the head and Gauge Grosskreutz having a gun which Channel 4 news did not disclosing the fact that both Anothh Hubertried and Gauge Grosskreutz were armed with Channel 4 news also falsely claiming that they were both unarmed along with not disclosing the fact that they both had criminal records for battery, strangulation and intoxication with Gauge Grosskreutz having a gun) and just as other people where closing in on Kyle, after Kyle shot twice (one to Anothny Hubertried who later died and one to Gauge Grosskreutz) after calling someone saying that he killed then tried to turn himself in but the police ignored him at the time wanting for him to move from the area (which Channel 4 news did not disclose the fact that he handed himself into Antioch, Illinois police).
The fact that even the local malitia group The Kenosha Guard is uncertain if Kyle Rittenhouse was connected to their group as well as confessing to someone on the phone that he killed someone: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/what-we-know-so-far-about-kyle-rittenhouse-accused-vigilante-in-kenosha-shooting/ar-BB18p9Dw

Not only have Channel 4 news not disclosed the fact that the Kenosha county board of supervisors has written a letter wanting Donald Trump to visit Kenosha and not cancel his visit to Kenosha but also that Channel 4 news not only keeps falsely claiming that Jacob Blake was unarmed but also that it falsely claimed by channel 4 news that Donald Trump wasn't invited to visit Kenosha even though the Kenosha county board of supervisors encouraged him not to cancel his visit to Kenosha.

Not only has Channel 4 news failed to mention that the article they mentioned (written by The Atlantic which alleged trump called WW1 soldiers losers and that he didn't attend the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018 because Trump featured his hair would get wet due to the rain) is not only owned by Steve Jobs widow Laurene Powell Jobs (which she owns The Atlantic via The Emerson Collective) who has donated over $600,000 to Joe Biden's campaign (which in of itself should consistitue a massive conflict of interest) but also that Channel 4 news has falsely claimed that not only Trump wouldn't attend the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018 because Trump feared that his hair would get wet due to the rain (which in reality was due the president’s helicopter Marine One being grounded due to bad weather which was decided by the Marine Corps and the White House Military Office, which then presents the recommendation to the White House in collaboration with the Secret Service,) with Channel 4 news also not disclosing that John Bolton, Jordan Karem, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Hogan Gidley and Keith Kellogg all and out publicily saying that Trump didn't say anything of those things on the day in question since they where with Trump when this allegedly happended but also that both Stephen Miler and Dan Scavino have come out publicaly stating (as well as showing in emails between them and secret and classified internal White House contacts) that Trump wasn't able to attend the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018 because the president’s helicopter Marine One was grounded due to bad weather which was decided by the Marine Corps and the White House Military Office, which then presents the recommendation to the White House in collaboration with the Secret Service and not because Trump feared that his hair would get wet due to the rain as originally claimed in The Atlantic and Examples 8 and 9 with Example 9 also not showing the CCTV evidence from the earthcam in time Square but also didn't show all the footage in terms of the footage shown of the driver going through the protestors which if shown would illustrate that the protestors were blocking the path of the car with the car driver honking his vehicle for the demonstrators to move out of the way which they refuse to do so.

After Example 10 was made and in Example 11 by Channel 4 news not only have Channel 4 news failed to disclose that the bodycam footage leading up to George Floyd has been released (which shows George Floyd not only disobeying police orders and resiting arrest) but also that not only did George Floyd said "I can't breath" whilst police were trying to get him in the back of the police car before asking to be put on the ground but also that not only Channel 4 news has refused to mention that the Minneapolis Police training manual instructs officers on how to subdue violent or resisting suspects by placing their knee on the neck of said suspect but also that it's been revealed that George Floyd's had a fatal fentanyl level of 11 which under normal circumstances would kill someone 2 to 3 times over which Channel 4 news has not disclosed (with all 3 medical reports admitting that he was on drugs durning his death as well as having Covid-19) and that if George Floyd had died somewhere else and there were no contributing circumstances then George Floyd's death would be ruled as an drug overdose death (though the two other memos filed Tuesday from the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office about conversations with Chief Hennepin County Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew could be incomplete because they were awaiting microscopic slides, pictures and other evidence from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s report).

In regards to Cathy Newman in terms of what she did in the video below her actions would fall under both Monroe v Hopkins of 2017 and McAlpine v Bercow of 2013 as not only did Cathy knew what she was saying was wrong but also unlike Monroe V Hopkins of 2017 (where you can at least say that Katie Hopkins intially didn't realise that her comments were addressed to the wrong person) and McAlpine v Bercow of 2013 (where you can say at least that Bercow didn't realise that the information she was intially spreading at the time was false) when push came to shove and CCTV evidence showed that Cathy Newman had lied in her tweets although both Cathy Newman and Dorothy Byrne did later apologise not only did the mosque in question receive death threats but also that Cathy Newman then later did another bad faith interview with Jordan Peterson.

In regards to Jon Snow after the investigation into the pro-brexit rally he was cleared of back in 2019 there may have been a line of inquiry missed in terms of that investigation as back in 2017 allegations came out against Jon Snow where it's alleged that durning Glastonbury (on the day before a mass address was to be made by Jeremy Corbyn) John Snow made disparaging comments about the Tories (which he then said he had no recollection of saying that) which from all the evidence that I can see wasn't investigated by anybody (though Channel 4 did at least remind Jon Snow of of his duties in regards to due impartality) which could constitute evidence of bad character under The Criminal Justice Act of 2003 Chapter 1 evidence of bad character explanatory notes.

In regards to Dorothy Byrne not only was she the person who has overseen seen the potentially misleading news reporting of Channel 4 news and both the Cathy Newman and Jon Snow situations but also back in 2019 durning 2019 durning her MacTaggart lecture Dorothy Byrne had called Boris Johnson both "a coward" (but did also say that Jeremy Corbyn was "a coward") and "a known liar" as well as comparing him to Vladimir Putin (as well as doubling down on her comments after initial comments) which if it was said privately but leaked to the public would be concerning but at the very least you could say that their her own private personal views or if it was a low ranking Channel 4 news you could say she's lacks authority to do newspieces however though this was said in public and was videotaped which not only calls into question due impartality since she's the head of Channel 4 news (which a reasonable person would suspect that Dorothy Buren would order her employees to do more negative stories on Boris Johnson since she has an axe to grind with Boris Johnson) but also that this was said back in August 22-23 2019 about 3-4 months to the 2019 General Election a reasonable person would suspect that Dorothy Buren would order her employees to do more negative stories on Boris Johnson since she has an axe to grind with Boris Johnson along the fact that with the above statement above Boris Johnson it would be in her best interest in protecting people who disavow Boris Johnson which is why there needs to be an independent investigation into Jon Snow's comments at Glastonbury as well as a reinvestigation into his comments at the Pro-brexit rally instead of an internal investigation by Channel 4 news since not only would it be a conflict of interest but also that the investigation would be buried and turned into a complete and utter whitewash.

2020.11.18 19:03 lockout18yt Episode 2: A warm welcome

- What the…? -His eyes were sore, and his whole body was hurting, he panicked, didn't know what was going on. The view in front of him wasn't going to calm him either. A dark, desolated but green forest, it was night time, something he didn't quite enjoy either.
- You…
- What was that? -He quickly grabbed a metal rod laying on the ground, making him notice all the debris on the ground and trees. He held the metal rod next to him, preparing himself to hit whatever was talking to him
- Why were you on that ship? -His thoughts became clearer, he vaguely remembered something about a ship crashing- What is your profession, your job?
- I… I…am a… builder -His fear was even stronger than before
- Perfection -A shadowy figure appeared in front of him, he was wearing a dark blue robe of sorts and a white mask- You will be the first of many, the second hand, of the cultists...

The pickaxe going through the creature`s shoulder wasn`t enough to kill him, but Jack was determined to kill it. Andrew tried using the wooden logs to build a wall, maybe the creatures would not attack them if they were inside a house, or a wooden box, same thing
- Alex, I`ll fend off these things, help Andrew build the hou… wait, Leonard said the rooms had real swords or something right?
- Yes, he also said the ship had a bunch of money and guns, but we don't have none of them right now
- Check in the cockpit, maybe there's a sword in there
- Well, there`s actually 3, well, 2 and a half, a string, a knife and…
- Give me the sword, now! -Alex tossed him the copper sword, a really short sword, maybe a shortsword?, then grabbed the other one, ready to slice those creatures in half, which kinda worked, the beasts required a lot of hits to finally die. They did not bleed, but they could be killed, which was a relief for the three survivors
As the first log of the 3rd row was being placed, Andrew got a word of inspiration, his mind was enlightened and the only thing he could think of in the middle of the heat of the battle was:
- Zombies! I mean look at them! They totally look like zombies, don`t they?
- Is that really the only thing you could think about right now?
- Well, I'm doing something that requires no thinking whatsoever…
- J...Just shut up and build!
Contrary to what others might think, killing zombies all night was fun, they weren't that many, and if one managed to hurt Jack or Alex they didn`t die, but they took a good chunk of their lifeforce. Little did they know one day, these zombies will be seen as the weakest of enemies.
Fifteen or so meters away from the survivors, three metal bars in the shape of a tripod were placed vertically in the grass, resembling a camera tripod, with the exception that the camera was a big round ball with a scanner on the front. The being operating the machine was a tall humanoid figure, it`s legs bent, and long arms. He was slim, and looked like he was made of bones, but was using a chest armor plate that made him heavier, but granted him a high defense and the ability to store all his creations. He was known around this planet for a creature possessing a high intelligence and creativity, so much so, that he became the weapons master of the most powerful being in the universe.
He scanned the survivors in an attempt to determine what type of otherworldly being they were, but it`s machine was unable to do so, as the only lifeforms it had registered were from a 1.7 light year radius, meaning these creatures were from far, very far away. This surprised the weapons master, something told him he should tell his master immediately. He opened his armor, grabbed a round grey-and-gold ball which he threw into the air and another even grayer ball which he threw at the floor. The first ball floated in place as it opened and the tripod was sucked into it while transforming and compacting. The second one opened, making a purple hole the size of a car in the grass where the weapons master jumped in, and the grey-and-gold ball followed him, attaching into the back of his chest armor.
- So? You`ve scanned them right?
- My lord, that's why I came early, this beings, they are from far away, the scanner couldn`t find a close match, they may be new undiscovered lifeforms
- Are they a threat? -The tyrant turned around from his adamantite seat, not fully, but just enough to see his weapons master talking to him
- Yharim, it doesn't matter if they are a threat, I will research them, they can learn so much from us, and us from them and…
- ARE THEY A THREAT?! -Yharim replied while his weapons master, Draedon, looked visibly upset
- I… I am not sure, they seem to be doing fine against zombies
- Make a lunar portal
- With all respect sir, I think that may be a little too excessive
- Make. A. Lunar. Portal!
- Right away sir -Draedon opened his armor and grabbed another ball of the same color as the one that was used to pick up the tripod scanner and threw it at the ground, where it split up, making a giant hole in the ground. The other side looked dark and creepy, but Draedon and Yharim jumped in, perhaps they had been there previously.
The lunar surface was as one would expect, dust everywhere, low gravity and a dark, cold side. The place where Draedon´s lunar portal was placed was on the dark side of the moon. The placement of the portal was not random, deep within the dark side, a giant prism was lying in the middle of a giant crater, and this was Draedon´s and Yharim´s objective.
- Sir, may I ask you why are you afraid of the beings?
- We have scanned every being within a light year from Concordia, I have battled every one of their leaders, and not a single one has defeated me. But… -He grabbed his giant yellow and red sword from his back, they were approaching the prism- ...What about the other ones? The universe is infinite, that means that there may be a creature on the other side of it that has twice as much power as me while looking like a green blob
- Green Blob?
- Yeah -When they were standing in front of the prism, Yharim lifted his sword and hit the prism with as much force as he could- Those colored things jumping around in the day, they drop a slimy thing if you kill them -The part where the prism was hit shattered, and Yharim place his sword on his back, using his hands to make the hole bigger so both could get inside
- Oh, you mean slimes? -Draedon got inside the prism and immediately vanished. Yharim, holding the opening followed him and vanished as well. The prism healed itself and the opening closed
- Whatever they're called -Both found themselves in a large teal room, there was no furniture, it was empty, producing an echo that gave it´s host a more threatening voice
- Well well well, if it isn´t the goddamn gnome that took my legs off! -A giant floating torso appeared in front of Yharim
- Pleased to see you too, Steve -Replied Yharim, with a grin on his face, he knew the giant creature was powerless against him
- MY NAME IS NOT STEVE, YOU MIDGET!, I am the Moon Lord!
- And? I can call you whatever I want, you decided to join The Light, remember?
- What do you want, why are you here? Is it because of the creatures? -Yharim turned to look at Draedon, both were puzzled
- You know about them? How much do you know? -Replied Draedon, always eager to know more
- Are they a threat to me?, to The Light? -Yharim was worried
- What? Listen, one of them was thrown out of the container they came in, he was dying, but I saved him, I detected something in him, true evil perhaps, so I saved him and now he praises me as his god of sorts, they are not powerful, they may not even live for more than 1 day out there, but who knows
- See? I told you they were not dangerous
- Moon Lord, I´m not sure about them, so do me a favor, if they kill the Guardian, kill them
- The guardian? He must be the easiest of them all, he is not going to be a challenge for them
- If you don't obey, I'll rip your arms off too, got that?
- I'm forced to
Yharim grabbed his sword again and used the end of it to hit the ground, making him and Draedon vanish from inside the room, appearing outside of it.
- Come on, let's get back

The weird smell of wood and a mix of scents was enough to wake her up. She was a 32 year old blonde woman who managed to get aboard the Terraria because she had 2 kids, something the NASA was keen on having aboard for unknown reasons. When she woke up she found herself in the middle of a small hut, lying on top of some leaves arranged to make what looked like a bed. In front of her was a man with green skin, a tail and some weird attires, wearing what looked like a skull of some animal on his head. He was making tea or some sort of beverage when he turned around to the girl, and seeing her woken up, he called someone
- Oh hey, you are finally awake. Umm, girls!She finally woke up!Come over here!
-What is this? Where am I? -Vague memories of riding on a ship crossed her mind, but wasn't sure if it was real or just a dream- And… OH GOD! My children! Where are they?!
- Oh, hello, how are you? -Four old women with green hair came from a door in the left side of the room, they were wearing nothing but green leafs on their breasts and waist
- Where are my children?!
- Calm down -The women looked at each other confused, not knowing what to do- Just stay still
- NO! Where am I? Who are you? What the hell is this? I´m gonna get out of here and… -The green man shot a dart through a blowpipe directly to the woman, which made her immediately pass out.
The 4 women put their hands in front of them and tried to focus. This was their last hope, they could not mess it up. Green particles started floating around the woman and then expanded all around the hut. Light was coming off of the particles to the point where it was blinding. The leaves all around the hut were moving violently as well. At one point, everything ceased, the leaves fell to the ground, the light stopped and the particles vanished. The green man looked visibly upset, seeing his only companion since Yharim rose to power there, lying on the ground, lifeless. but it had to be done, they were too old and they needed to pass their power to someone else, or the universe's fate would be doomed.
Some time later, the woman woke up. She was now the new dryad, and she had a power from many generations ago. She needed to find the Hero as soon as possible, but where to start? Where could he be?

- So a giraffe is in TSA right? Then the guy says something like “Is this your laptop?”, then the giraffe says “I thought you would never ask” -Said Jack not really understanding the joke
- I...I don´t get it -Said Andrew, not understanding either
- I think I got it, but, ah nevermind -A loud thud was heard behind the now-built wooden house. Impressive that they managed to build an entire house in one night, or less. The zombies were still outside, trying to kill the survivors, but maybe those weak wooden planks and logs were enough to keep them at bay- Ah!
- Relax, they ain't getting through those walls, hopefully -Said Andrew- I built them myself -He looked proud
- Aight, we are now safe, let's get serious, how the hell are we going to get out of here?
- Well, the ship had a transmitter, powerful enough to contact the earth
- Yeah, but the ship had a massive antena, which this tiny wooden house does not
- Look, the reason I was in the ship is because I was the only engineer there -Said Alex, proud of himself
- I’m pretty sure you weren’t, there were probably like 15 more
- Yeah, but I’m the only communications engineer
- Well, that changes things, doesn’t it? -Andrew had a sleepy voice, the night before the crash he was awake, learning more about the ship
- Yeah, well, let’s just sleep -Said Jack, and everybody else agreed, even though Jack was planning to stay awake and protect the house in case one of the zombies managed to take down the house door
The next morning was ruined by the sound of 2 bunnies fighting outside. Alex woke up and decided to get out and tell the bunnies to go somewhere else and scare them away, only to realize the house had no door
- Andrew, Andrew!
- Hmmph? What is it?
- The house, it has no doors, how are we gonna get out?
- What are you talking about?
- You heard him, it has no damn door, but thankfully, you left some logs and tools inside, which gave me the opportunity to build this -Jack sounded cold and tired. He was pointing at a small wooden workbench which had a knife, a string and some rocks on top of it
- And? Why didn’t you try to make one?
- I didn’t want to wake your lazy asses up, but now you are, so let’s go - Jack threw 2 wooden bows and some arrows where Alex and Andrew were, and grabbed another one, as well as an axe that was laying around
- Ah, no no no, that’s not how you do it, you need to use a pickaxe -Andrew said, knowing full well the structure of the house and knowing that an axe wouldn’t even be able to break the logs, somehow
- Whatever
After 15 minutes of fighting with the wooden structure, Alex and Jack managed to get out of the house, ready to explore this new world. They noticed that the place they were was actually a small valley, behind them were some pretty tall mountains with beautiful waterfalls decorating the background.
- As much as I’d like to go and see those mountains, we gotta find the rest of the crew -Said Alex, seeing how Jack was looking at the hills, dreaming to be on top of them
- Uh, yeah, sure
- Look, the ship landed in this direction, judging from the broken trees, meaning the rest of the crew must be -Alex pointed towards the east- There!
- Ok then mr captain
The two went east on a trip that seemed to last for hours, finding large diagonal holes on the ground and some slimes along the way. Alex found out that despite arrows being pierced right through them, they can still be killed, and Jack discovered that the weird substance they dropped upon death was tasty, and safe to eat… at the moment. After quite some time, they reached a giant tree, probably like 200 feet tall. They didn’t think much about it and went around it, discovering a beautiful paradise that looked very much like a jungle, but much clearer, and much better looking. The way they traversed it, not so much, as it was filled with literal ups and downs, big water puddles, piranhas, a spiky version of slimes that they decided to avoid at all costs, and giant holes leading into the underground that they definitely weren’t going to go into.
They did manage to find a burning tree and some marks on the ground that clearly indicated a big chunk of the ship landed there. They saw a part of the ship that looked like the lobby, so they grabbed some of the food that was lying around only to realize that the debris was outside of the jungle, and they were now on a different land, one that looked dead and corrupted, with huge dark mountains of red rock claiming the land. They decided to come back before they encountered something they didn’t want to
- Listen, send the wulfrum drones, hopefully they’ll see what they’re up to. If we see something suspicious, we kill them, alright?
- If you say so, master, but I personally think that we could learn alot from them and them from us -Yharim gave Draedon a very menacing look, which made him immediately regret saying that, so he left without a word.
He opened a portal into one of his underground labs to gather the resources to make wulfrum again, a very rare metal that could be factory made, but required different materials from different places, but Draedon had enough of them to build an entire army
The shadowy figure was wearing blue robes with gold lines running along it. He was observing his slaves expand and old buildings miles away from where Jack and Alex were, as he knew they would be a threat to him and everything he’s worked for. This would make his master proud, and hopefully would earn him a place as a higher being.
- Hey Andrew!, you won’t believe what we say…. Andrew? -The duo was back at the house, only to see Andrew hiding on the corner of it, frightened
- What 's wrong? -Alex asked
- Close. The. Door -Andrew ordered
- What?
- Come closer -Andrew started whispering- I saw something big floating around as the sun was setting
- Something big as in what? Like, what shape did it have?
- A ball
- A ball? You kidding, right?
- No, and I’ve had this weird feeling ever since, like I’m being watched or something
- Watched?
- Oh shit -Jack was outside, looking at the night sky when he noticed something floating around. It made a powerful roar, and the three of them knew that a simple wooden bow was not going to save them now

2020.11.18 18:42 James_Linder Bella Vista Police Problem Behaviors

A few years ago a police officer, Coleman (Duke) Brackney, murdered (my opinion) BV citizen James Ahern, for fleeing from him in attempt to escape a DWI arrest. The officer emptied his gun into the “back” of Ahern’s Mazda Miata (after he became stuck in the mud and could no longer continue fleeing) hitting him in the upper arm, the thigh, and the heart from a shot in his back (as evidenced by cop cam video showing Ahern had discontinued fleeing and just sat in his stopped car). Benton County prosecutor allowed defense attorney Andrew Miller to reduce the charges to the extent the officer only served 30 days in jail and was fined $10,000. Benton County allowed the corresponding documents to be sealed and Brackney is now a police chief in Sulphur Springs, a near by community (see my other post with details about this). And they call this justice!
In my opinion most of the BV police are over zealous with a Barney Fife complex. I was falsely accused of DWI drugs late one night by the Bella Vista Police and thrown in the Benton County drunk tank even after passing the breath test, eye tests, and giving blood and urine to be sent off for testing. It was humiliating being taken to the local hospital for blood test in handcuffs. The judge eventually (17 months after the incident) threw the case out of court because my rights had been violated as evidence by the cop camera showing they lied to me on the side of the road during sobriety testing. Having chronic fibromyalgia has damaged my leg muscles such that they are no longer strong enough to walk heal to toe in house slippers standing on only one leg at a time, especially on loose cinders where the test was conducted.
The 3 officers had fun bullying me while along side the road that night, most likely because I had been driving an awesome 600 HP, loud exhaust 2000 SS Camaro in Bella Vista for the entire 10 years we had lived in Bella Vista at the time! I have since learned that the BV police use the fake DWI charges routinely when the want to “legally” harass an individual.
Also, the same attorney who defended Brackney, Andrew Miller, took over a year defending me to get my case dismissed. Wanting to preserve his cozy relationship with the judge and various important players in the Benton County justice system, he agreed to every continuance that the BV District Attorney asked for, even one after 13 months had passed where the accusing officer failed to show up at court. Miller refunded my $2000 fee at that time when I questioned why he agreed to a continuation without my concurrence, since his challenging this would have immediately ended the entire ordeal in my favor. He knew that I was on Long Term Disability from Walmart due to depression yet he still allowed the prosecutor to drag the process out much longer than was reasonable. He defended me, but in a manner that had no consideration for what I was going through even though I begged him to expedite the process many times. In my opinion he did so simply not to ruffle the feathers of justice players he would have to deal with when in more important cases. Another attorney picked up the case and ended it all in 2 months after taking over with my paying no penalties or court costs. He was a low profile attorney who had no need to play games to preserve a favored relationship with the key players of the Benton County justice system. Pick your attorney very carefully. I had no idea that Andrew Miller defended Brackney when I selected the law firm to defend me, and the arbitrarily assigned Miller to my case. And beware of rural area cops; the more backwoods the area the more out of control these guys tend to be because they tend to be the rejects from the nesrby cities; case in point Police Chief Brackney of Sulphur Springs. You really have no rights at all when dealing with unscrupulous police officers!

2020.11.17 20:04 Aask115 Started a graduate program, having second thoughts

American graduate student here. Did my undergrad in 2018 in Political Science.
I started a 1 year International Relations-related graduate program at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland in September 2020. I am almost through with the first semester, which means I am essentially half way through the degree. But I have until December 1 to quit and not pay the tuition fees and the full housing contract fees (new policy due to COVID-19).
My issues: The program is a lot more theory-based than I imagined. I normally like what I am studying but due to the workload, the COVID restrictions in Scotland, the big uncertainty with not finding a job quickly (+ COVID), the money that will come with my first job (most likely will be low since it is more skewed toward government jobs) combined with the future total debt I will have (which will amount to ~$40k), I am having second thoughts. I also don't like my main professofuture dissertation advisor. Prior to this degree, I was considering MBAs because I know I don't want to struggle financially in life but I didn't want to start an MBA in the US due to cost.

I need advice.

Is The Crown true to life? A royal expert’s analysis of season 4, ep. 6-10 An episode-by-episode guide by the royal historian Hugo Vickers, taken from his book The Crown Dissected. Copied from https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/is-the-crown-true-to-life-season-4-episodes-hwxzkdsm3#
ep 1-5 https://www.reddit.com/TheCrownNetflix/comments/jvsyf9/is_the_crown_true_to_life_a_royal_experts/
Episode 6 Terra Nullius (Nobody’s Land)
Off we go to Australia to pick through what was in reality a highly successful Antipodean royal tour undertaken by the Prince and Princess of Wales in March 1983. They visited both Australia and New Zealand, and in a move from accustomed practice they took baby Prince William (born the previous June) with them.
The episode opens with Bob Hawke becoming Prime Minister (as indeed he did on 11 March 1983) and thus involved with the visit instead of the outgoing PM, Malcolm Fraser. Princess Margaret warns that there are problems in the Wales marriage – hints of bulimic behaviour. Meanwhile it is made clear that Prince Charles is whooping it up with Camilla – a jokey scene at Badminton, in the heart of hunting country.
The real Bob Hawke was an avowed republican, but he did not campaign for that during his premiership, possibly because there was no appetite or political advantage to be had. He had a good relationship with the Queen, partly based on a mutual passion for horse racing. He was respectful of the Queen and would never have expressed himself in the foul language put into his mouth in this episode.
The stance of this episode is that it was to be an important tour for Prince Charles. Waiting for him with jaws open was Hawke, reckoning that a visit from this ‘jug-eared bonehead’ would finally stir the Australians into severing links with Britain to become a republic – to finally escape ‘subjugation by mother Crown’.
The Prince hopes to shine, but it all gets off to a bad start – Diana is evidently at loggerheads with Edward Adeane (who interestingly suggests that the royal couple have ‘an audience with the Prime Minister’ and not the other way round), she talks of where the baby will be, needing stability. Apparently she will not see baby William for two whole weeks. Of course, in real life, she would have known the whole programme well in advance and would never have insisted on making last-minute alterations. Nor did she need to.
The Waleses were based at Woomargama, in New South Wales, the home of the well-known philanthropist Gordon Darling between 20 March and 17 April. It was halfway between Sydney and Melbourne and handy for Canberra. They were able to fly anywhere from Albury airport and be back there each night. They were not separated from baby William, which was the whole point of them staying there. So no programme alterations.
The Darling family might be surprised to see their substantial sheep station depicted as a colonial villa in the desert. The real Woomargama had six bedrooms, four bathrooms and three large living rooms, was decorated ‘straight from the pages of Home Beautiful’, hung with magnificent Australian paintings and surrounded by rolling English gardens with roses, pastures beyond, and boasted a small lake. There were a number of other housing possibilities on the estate.
In this episode, Prince Charles mocks a shepherd’s pie ‘unimaginatively’ served up at the sheep station. Why? In real life, they had their own cook on the tour, Mervyn Wycherley, and the Darlings employed a fine chef. Provisions came in from Arthur Butt, who ran a well-known gourmet smokehouse at Young St Albury, was famous for his smoked trout and supplied culinary delights to clients as far away as Switzerland. As it happens, in real life, the entourage in attendance on the Waleses – there were 23 of them – did themselves proud on Mr Darling’s cellar, and it was a shame that the real Prince of Wales never wrote him a thank-you letter. Diana did. Baby William did indeed take his first steps at Woomargama.
In this episode, the Waleses begin with a bungled press conference, in which she is a ‘thicko’, calling Ayers Rock ‘Ayers Dock’, and she throws wobblies. But one evening, at Woomargama, it all turns round on the flick of a coin. After a serious row, Prince Charles says he loves her and that he is the luckiest man in the world. He even blocks a call from Camilla Parker Bowles, the Waleses dance together, she starts to shine, the public adore her and finally Bob Hawke tells Prince Charles that the Princess has made them both look like ‘chumps’ and how disappointed he is that her popularity has put the lid on the republican mission on which he was set.
This ends with a deeply resentful Prince of Wales bemoaning the fact that the tour was meant to focus on him – ‘my tour’ – and Diana miserable, with her head down the loo again. On their return to Britain, he goes straight to Highgrove and she to London. She visits the Queen to complain that her husband resents her, and the Queen bites her head off for enjoying her own success rather too much and playing excessively to the gallery. The theme of this episode is a cold Queen, heartless and dismissive, shocked when Diana gives her an unwelcome hug.
The Queen, Queen Mother and Princess Margaret discuss all this, the Queen Mother dismissing Diana as an immature little girl, while Princess Margaret (played throughout the series as one wounded by the royal system) warns that in the worst scenario, Diana will break.
So where is the truth? I refer to Dimbleby, who was given access to contemporary documents for his biography. This was a long and arduous tour. The Princess had been depressed the year before. She had been given to binge-eating. She was suspicious of Camilla Parker Bowles. She saw a therapist. Dimbleby wrote: ‘It was not for lack of effort on the part of either of them that she was able to escape only intermittently from a pattern of behaviour that steadily wore away the insubstantial foundations on which their marriage had been constructed.’
However, Australia was a memorable experience. They loved Woomargama, and enjoyed time alone together with baby William. There was adoration for ‘Lady Di’. It was the Prince who found the tour a strain, not least because he was concerned at the effect this was having on his wife. She was variously elated and exhausted, but was able to rely on him for support. In consequence there were no black moods. He described the excessive reaction to her as ‘a circus’ but equally praised her for keeping him going when he felt gloomy. So, rather different from what we are shown here.
We know that, in time, Prince Charles came to resent that people seemed only interested in his wife, what she was wearing, and that in consequence no one reported his speeches. It was hard for him to compete, and to get his messages across.
Episode 7 The Hereditary Principle
As should by now be evident, The Crown focuses on the dark side when they can find it. This episode brings in the two sad Bowes-Lyon cousins who were put into a state mental hospital and forgotten about. The episode is based on an entirely false premise which is cunningly delivered and then refuted at the end. Meanwhile it is an opportunity for the film-makers to explore the unhappiness of Princess Margaret and have her expressing sympathy for her poor cousins. And they give the Queen Mother the most shocking lines of this particular series, ricocheting away from Morgan’s professed determination to stick to the truth.
The episode opens with Princess Margaret dressing and dancing about, and the Queen preparing to go to a gala. Then it cuts to the mental hospital and the pathetic inmates. A figure called Derek (‘Dazzle’) Jennings (played by Tom Burke) is around. He is about to become a Catholic priest and there is somewhat more than a hint that he wants Princess Margaret to convert to Catholicism. This, I assume, the film-makers got from a tabloid biography of her by Noel Botham, known for inventing and sensationalising (so, not a respectable source).
The real Father Jennings did exist and was a friend of Cardinal Hume. He knew Princess Margaret well enough to invite her to his flat and to occasionally dine with her. There was never so much as a hint in real life that Princess Margaret flirted with Catholicism, but it is not impossible that Jennings had a go at trying to persuade her. The real-life Jennings died in 1997. Richard Coles described him as a man ‘for whom intimacy was so difficult, and who could be so waspish and sometimes snarly, but who was finally able to love people through his priesthood’. As in this episode, so in real life, Princess Margaret dropped him like a stone, probably wisely, leaving him upset.
Some conflating of incidents then takes place – at least in the timeline. Princess Margaret goes into hospital in 1984 for an operation on her lungs due to smoking (she did). Prince Edward celebrates his 21st birthday (actually 1985, not 1984). Princess Margaret wants to be more involved (a theme already promoted in earlier episodes). In this episode, the Queen and the ever present Martin Charteris come round to tell her the bad news. Prince Edward now being of age, Princess Margaret will no longer be eligible to be appointed as a Counsellor of State. Fair enough, but in this episode, they take this to mean that Princess Margaret can no longer be of any use as a member of the Royal Family, whereas the only issue is what would happen if the Queen went abroad. Of course she could still ‘deputise’ at other times. They did not ‘strip away’ her official role.
To put this into perspective, six Counsellors of State are only appointed to serve if the sovereign goes abroad (or is so ill as not to be able to serve for a time) though only two of them serve, acting in tandem. These would have been Prince Philip (who always went abroad with the Queen, so never served), the Queen Mother, and then the next four in line to the throne – in order of seniority. Therefore, when Prince Edward was old enough, these would have been Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and him. It is correct that Princess Margaret would no longer have been eligible. The Queen Mother and Princess Margaret were the active ones when the Queen was on her Commonwealth tour, and later in the 1950s, and because quite often the Queen’s children were otherwise engaged in the early 1980s, Princess Margaret did serve as one of the active two. In real life, she was disappointed when she was no longer eligible for that role, though that is the fate of royalty.
In 1943, when George VI went to Africa, he appointed Queen Elizabeth and the next four in line to the throne who were not minors. These were his brother, the Duke of Gloucester, his sister, the Princess Royal, and two obscure cousins, Princess Arthur of Connaught and her sister, the Countess of Southesk, granddaughters of Edward VII, through his daughter, Princess Louise, Duchess of Fife. As usual only two acted.
This ‘demotion’ is the trigger for Princess Margaret to get thoroughly depressed.
We move to Mustique (where the runway seems to have enlarged considerably). Prince Charles visits her there (he did no such thing) and recommends she visits a therapist (which of course she never did). That is how she finds out about the cousins in the mental hospital.
In this episode, Princess Margaret gets Father Jennings to drive her to the mental hospital, Earlswood, a vast Victorian monstrosity at Redhill in Surrey. It was founded in 1847 and moved to Surrey in 1855, called the Earlswood Asylum for Idiots and Imbeciles. Ironically, the Royal Family of the day took a keen interest in it. Princess Margaret does not go in, but the Father does and finds the two sisters aware of their royal connections, etc. (In real life, completely out of the question.) The disgraceful Queen Mother scene – on the beach in Scotland – has her informing Princess Margaret that it was necessary to lock these girls up (and three of their cousins) on account of the Abdication. She says that they had a direct bloodline to the crown and it was essential that no hereditary stigma attached to the monarchy. So the girls had to play ‘a terrible price’. This is complete nonsense and one of the most shaming scenes in this series and should alert viewers to the message that the film-makers want to get across – the Royal Family sacrificing everyone and everything to retain the crown.
The real Queen Mother knew perfectly well that their disability was nothing to do with the Bowes-Lyon family. It was a ‘severe development disorder’ inherited from the Trefusis side, affecting all five girls. This is explained away at the end of the episode, but by then Princess Margaret is once again blaming her family for their heartless action. When the Princess Margaret figure discovers this, she says: ‘Then if they didn’t threaten the integrity of the Royal Family, the girls need never have been hidden away. Then what my family did was unforgivable.’
We leave Princess Margaret smoking and drinking. In real life, in the 1990s (so admittedly a little later on), she gave up smoking and only drank whisky in the evening, and Robinsons barley water at lunchtime.
For the record, the two sisters were Nerissa Bowes-Lyon (1919-86), and Katherine Bowes-Lyon (1926-2014), daughters of Hon. John Bowes-Lyon (1886-1930) and his wife, Hon. Fenella Hepburn-Stuart-Forbes-Trefusis (1889–1966), daughter of 21st Lord Clinton. Shockingly, as shown in this episode, editions of Burke’s Peerage from 1963 published that Nerissa died in February 1949 (in one version – 1940) and Katherine in 1961. (Debrett’s shows them alive in 1950, but they have gone by 1959). Their three cousins (literally no relation to the Royal Family) were Idonea Fane (1912-2001), Rosemary Fane (1914-73), twin with a brother who died before his first birthday, and Ethelreda Fane (1922-96). These last three also appear briefly in this episode, likewise incarcerated.
All five girls suffered from the development disorder. As I understand it, they were sweet fey children who did not grow up and could not cope with normal life. They were unable to speak. Their father died in 1930, and in 1941 all five were placed in the Royal Earlswood Hospital (then privately run), paid for by their grandfather, who lived until 1957. The hospital only became NHS in 1958. It was suggested that they were put there because they were grown up and because in wartime it was hard to find staff to look after them at home.
The Bowes-Lyon sisters were sometimes visited by a healthy sister, Anne, Princess Georg of Denmark, and by their mother, but as they did not recognise anyone, eventually visits were discouraged. When Nerissa died in 1986, Katherine was subdued for a few days, but then went back to being her usual self. Earlswood Hospital was closed in 1997 and Katherine moved to a care home nearby.
The story of these girls was exposed in the press in 1987, and later a rather thin Channel 4 documentary was made called The Hidden Cousins. This inspired The Guardian’s reviewer, John Crace, to write: ‘The only real secret in this film was why the producer had chosen this moment to rake over the shabby treatment of the Queen Mother’s two nieces.’
In real life, Princess Margaret never showed any interest in these sad girls.
Episode 8 48:1
This episode is given this strange title to represent the 48 Commonwealth countries wanting sanctions against South Africa, and the one that opposes – Britain and thus Mrs Thatcher. The episode is based on the entirely false premise that Michael Shea, the Queen’s press secretary, was an honourable man, forced to step aside to protect the Queen, who had authorised him to let it be known that she and Mrs Thatcher were on bad terms. This is completely opposite to what actually happened, and so it is hard not to conclude that this episode was cooked up in order to question the impartiality of the sovereign in respect of her dealings with her prime minister.
Just to run through what they show. The episode begins with Claire Foy reprising her role as Princess Elizabeth, dedicating her life to the service of the nation and Commonwealth in South Africa in 1947 and this being taken in by a young Margaret Roberts (later to be Thatcher) at Oxford. We then see a man putting the finishing touches to the typescript of a somewhat overblown novel, floridly entitled Ixion’s Wheel; a Threnody. He takes this to his agent in Bloomsbury. He is Michael Shea, the Queen’s press secretary (from 1978 to 1987) – played by Nicholas Farrell with rather more rugged good looks and dignity than the real-life Shea.
In the press office at the Palace, one of the secretaries (based on Sarah Brennan) raises an issue – Today newspaper wants him to comment on the Queen’s upset over Mrs Thatcher refusing to endorse sanctions on South Africa. On this he takes the moral high ground – the Queen is blameless and above politics. He refuses to comment to the newspaper. The real Shea, it may be recalled, once suggested to a reporter that palace staff sometimes referred to the Queen ‘putting on her Miss Piggy face’ if displeased. (Olivia Colman wears a Miss Piggy face in almost every episode of The Crown.)
Sir Sonny Ramphal, Secretary-General to the Commonwealth, tells the Queen that 48 Commonwealth countries want sanctions. Only Margaret Thatcher is demurring. Evidently the Prime Minister considers the Commonwealth ‘a ridiculous organisation. . . morally offensive’.
The scene moves to the Bahamas for CHOGM (1985) where the Queen addresses the conference. Mrs Thatcher listens with a stony face. The Queen summons her on board the Royal Yacht Britannia. Mrs Thatcher refuses to back sanctions. They argue. They give Mrs Thatcher an unfair line: ‘The Commonwealth. . . I recognise that for your family the transition of this nation from Empire to comparative supplicancy on the world stage must have come as a greater shock than to the rest of us. But I would argue that the Commonwealth is not the way to fill that gap.’ This implies that the Royal Family were stuck in the days of Empire, whereas they were supportive of countries taking on self-rule, and the Queen’s only concern was when a country left the Commonwealth. (And the Commonwealth has expanded considerably in her reign.)
There follow scenes in which Mrs Thatcher rejects many documents, refusing to sign them – ‘measures’, ‘actions’, ‘controls’, etc, etc. Eventually she accepts the word ‘signals’, evidently thought up by Shea: ‘The Iron Lady melted.’
Back in London, Shea’s agent says he writes well, but she cannot find a publisher for his threnody. She wants him to write a political thriller exploring the inner workings of Whitehall, Westminster and the Palace, based on the Queen’s frustration with her prime ministers. He looks horrified. He is far too honourable for such a thing! He comes out with a line: ‘Sadly I am old-fashioned and would never betray those confidences or the people I am proud to serve.’ Oh dear. In truth, his first thriller came out in 1971. ‘Most of his books are rather dim,’ noted an anonymous Observer profile at this time.
The Today saga gets worse. They are about to run a front page about the increasingly sour relations between Buckingham Palace and Downing Street, following the recent CHOGM, reporting that relations between the Queen and her prime minister are in danger of completely breaking down. Shea tells the Queen that Today is inconsequential but recommends that the Queen issue some kind of statement of support, even of ‘personal affection’ for the Prime Minister.
The episode veers into further fantasy by suggesting that the Queen wants people to know about her lack of compassion. Shea considers this a misjudgement and warns that there could be serious harm done to relations between the Palace and Downing Street. Both Shea and Charteris consider this reckless. Shea states that he wants his objection ‘noted’. Back in his office he learns that Simon Freeman of The Sunday Times has been on the line. Shea meets Freeman and another journalist, one of them with tie askew, in a Fleet Street pub. In reality there was no face-to-face encounter between Shea and the reporters. Shea answered telephone enquiries from The Sunday Times and thought he had handled these cleverly.
Bernard Ingham (Downing Street press secretary) warns Mrs Thatcher about the article. ‘Queen dismayed by “uncaring” Thatcher.’ (This was Sunday, 20 July 1986.) All the Royal Family read it, as do the Thatchers. Mrs Thatcher announces that for the first time she is impatient for her next audience with the Queen.
The misinterpretations get worse. Buckingham Palace denies all accusations. There is a confrontation between monarch and first minister, with heavy music to heighten the sense of drama. Even the drawing room is dark and grey. Mrs Thatcher lectures the Queen. She tells her that in the last seven years there have been 164 audiences, but that now all of a sudden there has been ‘an isolated hiccup’ – that the Queen ‘never expressed her political views in public’. The Queen denies that she has broken this rule. Mrs Thatcher tells her that the ‘source’ was ‘unprecedentedly close’ to the Queen. Mrs Thatcher then goes through the article. And then she hectors the Queen about her mission, etc. What the Queen says is so completely out of character as to be risible.
Prince Andrew’s wedding is set for the next day – so 23 July 1986. Prince Andrew summons his family on the morning of the wedding to discuss their mother’s ‘inexplicable lapse of judgement’ which threatens to eclipse his happy day. (They are all drinking champagne – Princess Anne for one never touches alcohol.) Prince Charles is delighted as it is the Queen in trouble for once, not him. (There is also a small subplot, Prince Andrew inviting his brother Edward to be his best man to snub Charles. Members of the Royal Family usually have two ‘supporters’.) Prince Edward was the best man on the day.
Shea tries to damp down the situation in a telephone conversation with Andrew Neil, editor of The Sunday Times. Neil refuses. So it all gets worse. There is then a scene when Martin Charteris tells the Queen a culprit is needed to deflect blame from her. And so, when Shea comes into his office, he finds Charteris lurking there. Charteris tells Shea to fall on his sword for betraying his queen and Shea emerges as a kind of wronged saint.
That scene compounds the worst of what The Crown does. It is not the first time they have turned a story around, but to base the greater part of an episode on a falsehood is beyond reasonable comprehension. I have little respect for this series, but this compounds my worst suspicions, for it is clearly an attempt to put the Queen in the wrong. Why? Do they want to turn their viewers against her?
The episode ends with a caption to the effect that the Palace continue to ‘insist that the Queen has never expressed an opinion or passed judgement on any of her prime ministers’. It further states that Shea went on to have a successful career writing political thrillers.
The truth of all this is that the villain of the saga was Michael Shea, who took it upon himself to brief The Sunday Times, relaying to them his own dislike of Mrs Thatcher’s policies.
Princess Josephine Loewenstein was a close friend of Princess Margaret’s. She remembers Princess Margaret saying that the only time she saw the Queen cry was over the suggestion that she did not get on with Margaret Thatcher.
The real Queen has always made a point of supporting her elected prime minister, offering what James Callaghan once described as ‘friendliness if not necessarily friendship’. Margaret Thatcher wrote in her memoirs:
Anyone who imagines that [the audiences] are a mere formality or confined to social niceties is quite wrong; they are quietly businesslike and Her Majesty brings to bear a formidable grasp of current issues and breadth of experience. And, although the press could not resist the temptation to suggest disputes between the Palace and Downing Street, especially on Commonwealth affairs, I have always found the Queen’s attitude towards the work of the government absolutely correct.
Of course, under the circumstances, stories of clashes between ‘two powerful women’ were just too good not to make up. In general, more nonsense was written about the so-called ‘feminine factor’ during my time in office than about almost everything else. I was always asked how it felt to be a woman prime minister. I would reply: ‘I don’t know: I’ve never experienced the alternative.’
It is worth stating that the private secretary at this time was Sir William Heseltine, not the long-retired Sir Martin Charteris. He was forced to spend a lot of time finding out who had briefed The Sunday Times, having accepted Shea’s original denial. There was quite a search for a non-existent leaking source.
Mrs Thatcher was upset, and so, before the article was published, Sir William suggested to the Queen that she should telephone the Prime Minister to say she had no prior knowledge of it and did not subscribe to its contents. Heseltine later wrote a letter to The Times in which he explained the role of the Queen in respect of her prime minister and stressed: ‘After thirty-four years of unvarying adherence to these constitutional principles, it is preposterous to suggest that Her Majesty might suddenly depart from them. No sensible person would give a moment’s credence to such a proposition.’ Except the makers of The Crown?
The Commonwealth Games were taking place in Edinburgh, so on 31 July, the Thatchers arrived at Holyroodhouse to stay with the Queen. That night there was a dinner with the Royal Household, and the Queen placed Michael Shea between herself and Mrs Thatcher at dinner. That must have been interesting.
The rift saga occupied reams of newsprint at the time. Woodrow Wyatt, ‘the voice of reason’, did not blame The Sunday Times for printing the story but opined: ‘Nothing is too bad for the secret source who vilely misrepresented the Queen.’ The Mail on Sunday naturally attacked The Sunday Times. They had clearly spoken to Shea, without naming him, and concluded that: ‘He knew nothing about how that article was to be distorted for the front page and was horrified after publication.’ A.L. Le Quesne wrote to The Times on 21 July and got near the truth by suggesting that it was ‘one or more of the Queen’s personal advisers acting on their own initiative with the aim of influencing public opinion by doing so’. A young journalist at the News of the World, Andrew Morton (later to be Diana’s mouthpiece), tracked the source as Michael Shea by revealing that The Economist had claimed the article had been read to him. He confronted Shea: ‘On that basis then you are the Palace mole?’ Shea replied: ‘Ah. That might be your conclusion.’
Several books have since revealed that Shea acted entirely independently and that he misled everyone at the Palace. He was sufficiently self-delusional – and alarmed – to maintain that no responsibility rested with him, and when eventually he was forced to own up, even then he claimed that he had been grossly misrepresented.
Kenneth Harris wrote perceptively about the similarities in the characters of the Queen and Mrs Thatcher in his 1994 biography, The Queen, and Hugo Young discredited stories of a rift in One of Us, his 1989 biography of Margaret Thatcher. Sally Bedell Smith, a more recent biographer of the Queen, nailed Shea for expressing his own liberal views ‘that friends had heard him express at dinner parties’.
Buckingham Palace effectively sacked Shea by securing him a job with Hanson plc – which is the polite way those things are done. Years later, Noreen Taylor reviewed one of his novels, Berlin Embassy, writing: ‘Michael Shea gives the impression that he finds himself rather engaging. He just can’t help congratulating himself on a life of success, prosperity, personal happiness and even a little celebrity. His shoulders fairly bristle with epaulettes of triumph.’ I met Shea a few times. I support the Taylor view.
It has been suggested that when Shea left the Palace he went so far as to ask for a knighthood (KCVO). This was not forthcoming. The film-makers might perhaps have consulted the second volume of Charles Moore’s authorised biography of Margaret Thatcher: ‘Over a rather longer period of time, the government’s low opinion of Michael Shea’s behaviour was borne in upon Buckingham Palace, and he was quietly edged out of his post (“not fast enough” in the view of Sir William Heseltine).’ It defies belief that the makers of The Crown could create the greater part of a whole episode on a falsehood.
Episode 9 Avalanche
This is another episode based on tragedy, again not short of false premises. It starts with the well-known scene of Diana dancing with Wayne Sleep at a 37th birthday gala for Prince Charles – in connection with the Friends of Covent Garden – in November 1985 (a private ballet evening in December in fact). She surprises him with this dance, which is meant as a tribute of her affection for him, but he interprets it as a ‘grotesque, mortifying display’ of showing off. He yells at her in the car. At a reception afterwards, the real Wayne Sleep remembered that Prince Charles was aloof, making it all too clear that he had disapproved of Diana’s performance. In this scene he then departs to Camilla world – Highgrove.
Timelines are once again conflated since all of a sudden we jump to March 1988 – over two years on – and the tragic skiing holiday in Klosters in which Major Hugh Lindsay, equerry to the Queen and friend of Prince Charles, is killed in an avalanche when the royal party go skiing off piste. We see the avalanche, and we see the Queen waiting to hear if her son has been killed. Hugh Lindsay’s wife, the former Sarah Brennan, worked in the press office – the woman depicted in the press office scenes in episode 8. In real life, she had been married since 1987 and was pregnant. A posthumous daughter was born. Diana and the Duchess of York were also in Klosters (but the Duchess is not shown in this episode).
In reality, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were going round the Centenary Exhibition of the Lawn Tennis Association at the Queen’s Club in Hammersmith on the afternoon when news of the accident came through. Since there were rumours that the Prince of Wales might have been killed, a message was sent to her to reassure her, lest that rumour reach her. She was of course greatly upset at the news of her equerry’s death.
The avalanche and its consequent tragedy is used to symbolise opposing reactions by Charles and Diana to their marriage. In a nutshell, as shown here, he wants out, she realises how much she would have missed him and wants to make it work. To suggest that this was the moment of reckoning in their marriage is far from the truth.
In the episode, Princess Anne reports on the sorry state of the Wales marriage. Charles then tells Camilla that the avalanche served to make it clear to him that he really wanted her and would give anything to escape from his charade of a marriage, virtually a proposal from a married man to a married woman. This seems to me to be pushing it a bit. There is then a cooked-up scene in which the Queen summons the Waleses to tell them that the marriage of a future monarch cannot be allowed to fail, and while Charles is about to announce his plan, Diana says that the possibility that Charles had died in the avalanche showed her that they must override their differences, as these are trivial in comparison to what happened in Klosters. Heavy, dramatic funereal music brings this melodramatic scene to a close.
So on it goes: Diana dumps her lover, Major Hewitt and goes into therapy – all this as their seventh wedding anniversary approaches – 29 July 1988. Meanwhile Prince Charles is not giving Camilla up. The anniversary comes round and Diana brings her boys to Highgrove, where we see a maid removing an alien bra from the bed and switching Camilla’s photo for Diana’s. Prince Charles gives Diana an 1822 volume on the history of her family home, and she gives him a video of herself singing in Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera. He tells Princess Anne it was monstrous.
Princess Anne attacks him for being a fantasist (pronounced fentasist) about the whole Camilla thing. He stomps off. So he confronts Camilla – does she still have feelings for her husband? He wants to escape this calamity of a marriage. Calling him ‘sir’, she tells him it is important that he be realistic and then they kiss. The outcome of all this is that Prince Charles goes into a sulk and refuses all Diana’s calls.
Diana takes up with Hewitt again. All this is filmed to the accompaniment of music, sometimes frantic and sometimes ominous, as in a thriller. But Prince Charles has had her under surveillance and so the men in grey suits observe, confer and finally report. We are to believe that they have finally nailed her. A heavy roll of drums. The Prince is told. He looks positively murderous.
What can I say? If the wedding was the stuff of fairy tales, the gradual collapse of the marriage was a degringolade of epic proportions. The problem with addressing the decline in that marriage is that there are two versions and they are invariably contradictory. Jonathan Dimbleby described the real-life decline between 1987 and 1992 as ‘a drama in which the banality of the script was illuminated only by shafts of cruelty’. He wrote that the press reports invariably ‘cast the Prince of Wales as the “villain of the royal soap opera”’. That is the line taken here and it is further pursued in the final episode of this series.
Episode 10 War
Much of this episode concerns the fall of Mrs Thatcher. The other part, interspersed with the political drama, is the continuing collapse of the Wales marriage.
It begins with Geoffrey Howe lumbering out of bed, with his ditch-Mrs-Thatcher speech to the ready. This he delivers to devastating effect in the House of Commons. Fair enough – he did. A wounded Mrs Thatcher battles on, and according to this episode, while the Prime Minister focuses on the Gulf, the Queen asks if she expects a leadership crisis, to be told: ‘I shall see them off in no time.’ The contest goes to a second ballot, and Mrs Thatcher sees her duplicitous ministers one by one. Denis comments: ‘Bastards. . . Murderers.’ So far so good, but then they introduce a ridiculous suggestion that Mrs Thatcher wants to ask the Queen to dissolve Parliament in order to save her skin. This the Queen refuses, on the grounds that there is no power without authority: ‘The country is against you.’ Why do they cook up such nonsense?
So goodbye, Margaret Thatcher. The episode goes back into focus at the end, with the Queen summoning Mrs Thatcher to see her, saying: ‘I was shocked by the way you were forced to leave office,’ and pinning the Order of Merit on her for ‘exceptionally meritorious service’. I remember being told at the time how shocked the Queen was – a comment along the lines of ‘she may have been tired but. . .’ The Queen did not like the way the Conservative party forced her out of office. What a pity the series did not have more scenes like that, which capture the relationship – instead of continually perverting the truth. This scene was genuinely moving.
Interspersed with this is the roller-coaster collapse of the Wales marriage to which I can but echo the views expressed at the end of the last episode. There is a trumped-up bit about Prince Charles announcing that Diana has resumed her affair with Hewitt, and wishing to institute proceedings against her. No. The Waleses go to Ludgrove School to watch a rugby match in order to contrast the affection of the mother with the cold and distant approach of the father. Prince William is hugged by Diana and given a pat by his father. Then we get Prince Charles doing her down as usual and with real venom.
The apparently Machiavellian Edward Adeane tries to scuttle Diana’s first solo visit to the US – which happened in 1989. Patrick Jephson, her private secretary between 1988 and 1996, assures him she is healthy enough for the trip. Needless to say it is a wild success. This is a device to introduce the caring Diana, hugging a child in Harlem, visiting an AIDS clinic and so on, all of which disgusts the Prince Charles figure. There are more bulimic scenes, and we are left with the image of the princess as a poor, crumpled creature.
This is contrasted to the Prince Charles figure cavorting with Camilla (smoking and drinking) and wanting her as his wife – complaining that the world just wants a fairy tale, whereas he wants her – the reality and that that can be the fairy story. On Diana’s return from America, there is an unpleasant scene in which Prince Charles yells at her for ‘hurting’ his mistress. ‘Camilla is who I want,’ he screams. Unacceptable nonsense. History does not corroborate any wish for divorce or separation at this time. Right up until 1992 he believed it could still work publicly if not privately.
The series ends with the Royal Family heading for Sandringham for Christmas in a convoy of Rolls-Royces. The customary dead birds are hanging up, presumably to stress to the viewers what a brutal bunch the family is. No one speaks to Diana, the Queen brushes her off, but nor does she want to listen to Prince Charles and his whingeing. As we come to the end of this season, the film-makers have firmly stuck the knife into Prince Charles. There is no hint at the work he does in real life, his achievements or that he has any interest other than Camilla. The portrayal is completely negative.
Diana stays in her room and is visited by Prince Philip, who tells her: ‘It might reassure you that we all think he’s quite mad.’ He urges her not to break away, suggesting that might end badly. She replies: ‘I hope that isn’t a threat, sir.’ I guess that is a hint that we are to be served up conspiracy theories in a later season, when she is killed in the tunnel in Paris in 1997.
Prince Philip tells her he was an outsider when he met the Queen, a 13-year-old princess. He delivers lines which are perhaps meant to bang home one of the messages of the series. He was an outsider then: ‘And after all these years I still am. We all are. Everyone in this system is a lost, lonely, irrelevant outsider apart from the one person, the only person that matters. She’s the oxygen we all breathe, the essence of all our duty. Your problem, if I may say, is you seem to be confused about who that person is.’
Season 4 ends with a group photograph of the Royal Family, Diana a lonely figure on the fringes, tears in her eyes.

This season covers the period from May 1979, when Margaret Thatcher is elected Britain’s first female Prime Minister until the Christmas of 1990, shortly after she has been drummed out of office. In writing these chapters, I take on board the statement made in pre-publicity by Peter Morgan: ‘We do our very, very best to get it right, but sometimes I have to conflate [incidents] . . . You sometimes have to forsake accuracy, but you must never forsake truth [my italics].’ I appreciate that this is television, and that it is not a documentary, but it is about real people, and sometimes about real situations. As before, I will report factual errors, some trivial, some more serious. I noticed that the timeline was considerably awry in this season, and that by making one incident follow quick on the heels of another, the truth was unfairly ‘conflated’ for dramatic effect. I am sorry to say that truth is frequently forsaken.
Fundamentally this season is about the relationship between the Queen and Mrs Thatcher, and between the Prince of Wales and Diana. This creates a new problem for anyone watching it, as in both these relationships, there are numerous contradictions, there has been much side-taking and it is possible to slant things in a variety of different ways. Nevertheless, even with that taken into consideration, there are truths and untruths, and these I intend to explain.
I found that Season 4 was more subtle and cunningly divisive than in the earlier episodes. It occurred to me when I completed my first viewing that pretty much every character is dislikeable. The Queen is glum and schoolmistressly, the Queen Mother is given some truly horrible lines, Princess Margaret is downright rude, Mrs Thatcher buttoned up, and so on. Diana is well played by Emma Corrin (who at times even turns into her) and she seems to be the heroine of this series, largely portrayed as the victim of a heartless family.
Episode 1 Gold Stick
Why not start as you mean to go on – with a massive howler? It is the Trooping of the Colour on Saturday 16 June 1979 – it has to be as we see Lord Mountbatten riding as Colonel of Life Guards – Gold Stick – for the last time. But the Queen is in the uniform of Colonel-in-Chief of Grenadier Guards with the riband of the Garter, whereas it was the colour of the Scots Guards being trooped that year, and on that day she wore the uniform of Colonel-in-Chief of Scots Guards (a thistle, not a grenade on the collar) and the dark green riband and star of the Order of the Thistle – and no plume in her cap as it is the central of the five regiments of guards. Prince Philip should also have worn a green Thistle riband – not a blue Garter one, as he did in June 1979. The continuity department has slipped up over Charles Dance. He rides to the parade wearing a breastplate – but appears on the balcony for the flypast without it. He would not have had time to change.
To be fair, they get most medals and Orders right during this series, including Orders of Australia when appropriate, which proves they can do it if they try.
The themes in this episode are Mrs Thatcher becoming Britain’s first female Prime Minister, the assassination of Lord Mountbatten by the IRA, the first meeting of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, with hints that all is not well in the marriage of Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips.
Gillian Anderson plays Margaret Thatcher with a particular voice, which the real Mrs Thatcher sometimes used – as though she is addressing her interlocutor in a speech, rather than conversing naturally. I got the impression that we were not being encouraged to like Mrs Thatcher. She is played more confidently here than the nervously respectful person she was in relation to her sovereign. Charles Moore, her official biographer wrote: ‘Mrs Thatcher was anxious about meeting the Queen in the way most ordinary citizens would be, worrying about what to wear, when to curtsey and how to avoid being late. She needed frequent reassurance.’
In she comes to Buckingham Palace (always through the middle ceremonial gates rather than the right-hand ones) for her first audience. It was interesting to find the Prince Philip character referring to her disparagingly as a chemist, since in real life he rather admires scientists. (I would suggest they were higher in his esteem than most professions.) The Queen would never have listed her choices for the cabinet, even for fun.
The Royal Family arrive en masse at Balmoral. So it is August 1979. Princess Anne’s marriage is in trouble. In this series, her accents are immensely clipped. The etiquette adviser has also muddled the cast over the way members of the Royal Family approach the Queen. The Royal Family have well established ways in which they greet each other. One such is kissing a hand, a chivalrous gesture, usually instigated by a man. Men in royal families greet married female relations that way and also elderly spinster aunts, etc. In real life, Prince Charles kisses the Queen on both cheeks. He then kisses her hand, rather than giving a Coburg bow (a quick neck bow), which he and other cast members do in this series – not hard to get right. This is even done in private. This mistake happens over and over in this series.
It is not often that we see members of the Royal Family, but when Prince Philip met the Queen Mother outside St Paul’s Cathedral for the memorial service for President Eisenhower in 1969, he arrived last as he was representing the Queen. He came up, they shook hands as he bowed and kissed her hand simultaneously, and then she swept him up, as it were, and he kissed her on both cheeks.
As to the assassination of Lord Mountbatten at Mullaghmore, this portrayal will not appeal to the families of those who died and who have responded so nobly since – in the interests of advancing peace in Northern Ireland.
Mountbatten did not engineer the marriage of Andrew Parker Bowles to Camilla Shand. They needed no help from him. In this episode, he writes Prince Charles a note, which will be delivered posthumously – no such note was written.
Peter Morgan deployed a symbolic stag in his film, The Queen, which some found a fantasy of symbolic genius but others deemed tiresome. Here, as the IRA killers take position, we get cutaways to blood sports at Balmoral, shooting and stalking – and the Prince Charles figure viciously killing a salmon he has caught in Iceland. Presumably we are meant to muse on the bloodthirsty Royal Family slaughtering living creatures left and right, while one of their own (who throws a lobster back into the sea to breed for the future) is himself blown to a thousand pieces.
We are shown scenes of members of the family and others receiving the news of Mountbatten’s death. Mrs Thatcher is brought out of a cabinet meeting at Downing Street. It was a surprise to find the cabinet sitting on a Bank Holiday Monday in August, in the middle of the parliamentary summer recess.
The death of Mountbatten prompts a scene in which the Prince Philip character berates Prince Charles for potentially wallowing in mawkish grief. According to this scene, Prince Philip was resentful of Mountbatten transferring his affection and interest from him to Prince Charles. The Crown seldom misses a chance to besmirch the character and motives of Prince Philip. It is not for me to say what was in the head of the real Prince Philip, but my understanding is that he thought Mountbatten’s influence on Prince Charles to be somewhat unhelpful, and I remember that earlier in that very summer (1979) the real-life Prince Philip had expressed amused irritation at the way Mountbatten continually interfered in everything (in a conversation with Lady Alexandra Metcalfe). Which is not to suggest for one minute that the real Prince Philip was not greatly affected by the assassination.
Time is ‘out of joint’ (Hamlet) in respect of the list of Prince Charles’s girlfriends, this in 1979, with Mountbatten at the table. They name Anna Wallace, who did not appear on the scene until 1980 (so not 1979), and dropped out in the summer of that year; there is mention of Sarah Spencer (1977) and repetition of the nonsense that the family squashed the chance Prince Charles had to marry Camilla Shand, who in reality was always going to marry Andrew Parker Bowles and had done so in 1973.
Charles and Diana first met properly at Althorp in 1977 (here implied to be 1979), though the Royal Family had known the Spencers forever. In recent times, Cynthia, Countess Spencer had been a Lady of the Bedchamber to the Queen Mother between 1937 and 1972. Viscount Althorp (later Earl Spencer from 1975), father of Sarah and Diana Spencer, had been the equerry on the Commonwealth tour of 1953-54, and the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen Mother, Princess Margaret, had attended his wedding to Hon. Frances Roche in Westminster Abbey in 1954. So the fabricated scene in which Prince Charles spots Lady Diana Spencer, trying to hide as a tree, does not entirely wash because even if he did not recognise her, he would have known who she was. Until they moved to Althorp, the family had lived at Park House, Sandringham, a fairly substantial residence very close to Sandringham House, and to St Mary Magdalene Church (and not a ‘cottage’ as described by the Prince Philip character in the next episode).
From what has been written, we know that Diana was drawn to the sorrow of Prince Charles, when she observed his grief at the murder of Lord Mountbatten and that she had the chance to tell him that in the summer after the assassination – 1980. On 17 May the same year, Lady Sarah got married. In this episode, Prince Charles rings her to ask her permission to invite Diana out. But no. He did not ask her out. This episode ends with him doing just that.
Episode 2 The Balmoral Test.
This episode is based on the entirely false premise that the Royal Family use Balmoral to lay social traps for their guests to see if they pass the test – and no doubt viewers will be amused to see the Thatchers being subjected to this – shown up as socially inadequate, falling into every predictable trap placed in their path. The Lady Diana Spencer figure is also put through this process, but passes with flying colours. It is of course ludicrous to suggest that the Queen and her family would treat guests in this way, and a real-life guest has pointed out: ‘NO WAY would HM and the rest of her family berate Margaret Thatcher or her husband. They in fact bend over backwards to make people feel welcome and at home.’
By and large the episode is based in Scotland, opening with a scene in which a Japanese businessman has bought some shooting from neighbours to Balmoral, and seriously wounds a fourteen-point Imperial stag, which stumbles off camera. As related, Peter Morgan likes the symbolism he finds in stags, the stag reappearing as the plot unfolds.
In London, the Charles figure takes the Diana figure to the opera on a date, overseen by Diana’s maternal grandmother, Ruth, Lady Fermoy, here played as a ferocious old harridan by the Scottish actress Georgie Glen. (The real Lady Fermoy was much more surface gentle.) This was set in the summer of 1980 (not 1979 when the Thatchers go to Balmoral). No such occasion took place. It leads to an invitation from Charles to Diana to come up to Balmoral. Meanwhile, Mrs Thatcher tackles her stuffy old cabinet of public-school ministers, all of whom are against her.
So, on with the secret tests. The Thatchers arrive at Balmoral. (This is clearly their first visit, so in reality 8 September 1979, the weekend after Mountbatten’s ceremonial funeral). The servants are superciliously rude to them despite calling the Prime Minister ‘Ma’am (!)’ – I would have thought ‘Madam’. We see Denis offering a tip at the wrong time, Mrs T. insisting on unpacking her own suitcase, having no outdoor shoes, coming down in evening dress to find the Royal Family drinking tea, unchanged, and later being subjected to a ridiculous parlour game designed to further humiliate them. The Queen invites Mrs T. out stalking, criticising her for what she is wearing, and when Mrs T. returns to the castle, the Princess Margaret figure is intensely rude to her and picks her up for saying ‘I beg your pardon’, and condemns her as ‘common’ to her face. But they don’t show the audience – a chat with the Queen in her private sitting room, a feature of the real-life visits.
I wondered when the old business of Queen Victoria’s chair would be thrown in. It is. The actual chair is still in a drawing room at Balmoral, but is a very low, winged armchair. It is true that no one is to sit in it – but it would hardly have been placed at a desk – and Queen Victoria was tiny, so there is no way that Margaret Thatcher would have chosen it when she settled down to work. Had she done so her chin would have been where her elbows should be. (Reasonably recently the real chair has been moved to a place where people are less likely to sit in it.)
The Braemar Games, with men tossing the caber, prompt Denis Thatcher to denounce the Royal Family as living in ‘half-Scottish, half-Germanic cuckooland’. (Having once had a long conversation with the real Sir Denis in 1997, I can attest that that is very far from what he thought about the Royal Family.) And so the Thatchers plead urgent business in London and leave early. They did no such thing.
The film-makers could have consulted Carol Thatcher’s biography of her father, in which he described the form of the Balmoral visit:
There was a house party and some of the people who’d been shooting didn’t come in until later and then there were more drinks – because they’re very generous with drink – and then we went in for dinner. In their language it’s probably very informal but nevertheless you’re on tiptoe. There’s the usual sort of after-dinner conversation over coffee and then the Queen withdraws fairly early . . .
Back in London, Mrs Thatcher sorts out her cabinet and later quotes Charles Mackay (No Enemies) to the Queen. According to Charles Moore’s official biography, she did use that poem in speeches. Peter Morgan is sounder on politics than when dabbling in the minutiae of Royal Family life – witness his play, The Audience, though Charles Moore, writing before this series was released, made the valid point in his biography of her: ‘Far from being, as some docu-dramas and plays have depicted, little speeches in which Mrs Thatcher laid down the law to the Queen, what she said was usually an anodyne recitation of current business.’
Prince Charles arrives in a Rolls-Royce. By now we have Camilla urging him to invite Diana to stay. (So we have jumped a year to the summer of 1980). There is a strong theme throughout the series that Charles only ever wanted Camilla – before and during his marriage. Then Diana arrives as Mrs Thatcher leaves. In reality, Lady Diana Spencer stayed part of that summer with her sister Jane, whose husband, Robert Fellowes, was one of the Queen’s private secretaries, so they occupied a house on the Balmoral estate. She was invited to Balmoral in October 1980, at a time when the Queen was not there.
But in this episode, all the Royal Family are there, as is Diana’s grandmother, Lady Fermoy. The staff call her ‘Ma’am’ (surely ‘M’lady’ before her marriage) and Prince Philip attempts to bond with her, taking her out early one morning (unlikely) to polish off the wounded stag (waiting an inordinately long time before firing but fortunately the stag poses politely). (This is when he calls Park House, Sandringham a cottage.) Prince Charles, perpetually played as a sad wimp by Josh O’Connor, appears jealous of the bonding between his father and the young girl.
Then we get Prince Philip razzing Charles in the hanging room as the stag is skinned and telling him to get on with marrying Diana. This is a long-held myth. Somewhat later there was a letter in which Prince Philip suggested to his eldest son that he should make his mind up one way or another, either go ahead or not compromise Diana by keeping her hanging on. In real life, Prince Charles interpreted this as an edict to marry her. Jonathan Dimbleby addresses this in his authorised 1994 biography. I know a family relation who saw the letter and confirmed that it was in no way an ultimatum.
However, since this episode is all about tests at Balmoral, Diana passes (‘Rave reviews from the whole ghastly politburo,’ Charles tells Camilla), Princess Anne supports the idea of marriage and, back in London, Mrs Thatcher secures a new cabinet (although the famous cabinet reshuffle was 14 September 1981). Prince Charles is left with his main concern – having to surrender Camilla. We go out to the overture of La traviata, the dead stag’s head hung on the wall at Balmoral and we see a slightly smug Diana.
Episode 3 Fairytale
This episode begins with Prince Charles looking miserably out of a window, and a happy Diana in her little car. Then we see the Royal Family waiting by their telephones to hear if Prince Charles has proposed to Diana or not. He has proposed. In this episode, he does it in the nursery of Windsor Castle (perhaps to symbolise cradle snatching) before packing her off back to her flatmates in London. She runs the gauntlet of the press (I well remember the daily scenes like that), but after the flatmates have screamed their excitement, they are somehow able to go out on the town to a nightclub like Annabel’s without a newsman in sight. In the next scene, Diana chooses an engagement ring, with the Prince Charles figure complaining that she has hit on the most expensive one.
Clearly the girl needs to be schooled. . . In to see the Queen comes Sir Martin Charteris. The actor, Charles Edwards, must have a good agent, since he plays Charteris all the way through Seasons 3 and 4. The real Sir Martin had retired to become Provost of Eton at the end of 1977, but this one stays on and is still there in episode 10. Nor does Charles Edwards’s character age at all – by episode 10 the real Sir Martin would have been 77. This one appears blessed with the gift of eternal youth. He suggests that Diana move into Buckingham Palace.
It is crazy that the Diana figure would make so many gaffes of ‘protocol’ on entering the Queen’s drawing room, considering she had been brought up in royal circles. This precedes the engagement interview.
Of course we get the embarrassing ‘in love? . . . whatever in love means’ line in the engagement interview. In real life, Lady Diana giggled nervously. In this episode, she looks stony-faced. (It is perhaps worth saying that not one newspaper picked up on that phrase at that time. It has been much repeated and reported since then of course.) Altering the timeline – Morgan allows himself to conflate incidents, remember – Prince Charles hooks it back to Highgrove rather than attending the real-life dinner given by the Queen Mother for the couple that night. And literally the next day – rather than towards the end of March – he heads off to the Antipodes and the US for five weeks.
At the airport he tells Diana that Mrs Parker Bowles will be getting in touch with her. He gives her a peck on the cheek and off he goes. So Camilla prepares to enter the fray.
There follow nauseating scenes when harridan Lady Fermoy trains Diana in the ways of royal protocol – almost a take-off of those reality TV shows where some battered old battleaxe tries to give girls who do not have the benefit of Diana’s aristocratic background lessons in elocution and deportment. She suggests that after marriage ‘certain members of the Royal Family will have to curtsey to you’. For the record, HRHs do not curtsey to each other, only to HMs. She tells her granddaughter about the various pages of the backstairs (plural) etc. when there is only one. The information she dispenses is inaccurate. In real life, Diana needed no such schooling.
More credible are Diana’s dance lessons and lonely skating excursions around Buckingham Palace – the trolleys of letters, the flowers that arrive, her loneliness and her kitchen bingeing and throwing up. No one will answer her internal palace telephone calls. These scenes capture well what we now know to have been the unfolding saga. Throughout this episode, her loneliness is stressed.
Prince Charles has not rung from Australia but Camilla gets in touch. A huge Rolls-Royce takes Diana to lunch. The lunch scene is to establish that Camilla knows the Prince better than Diana. Well, yes. From Diana we have been told that at a certain point Camilla establishes that she does not care for Highgrove and thus she will have that territory for herself.
This heralds the ‘Fred’ and ‘Gladys’ bracelets saga. Jonathan Dimbleby wrote that in fact he called Camilla ‘Girl Friday’. When the Prince returns, he goes straight to Camilla. I appreciate that it is hard to untangle facts and timelines, but it was my understanding – based on Dimbleby’s authorised biography – that he only saw Camilla once after the engagement, and that that was to say goodbye to her. As Dimbleby put it: ‘His feelings for Camilla Parker Bowles had not changed, but they had accepted that their intimacy could no longer be maintained.’
Edward Adeane is played as the ultimate grey suits man – hostile to the Princess and fobbing her off at every turn. In real life, Adeane was a likeable, kind-hearted man, shy and even a bit afraid of women in the repressed way of the confirmed bachelor of his day. He did not relate to Diana, and of course she did not share his interest in fishing or shooting.
I remember how thin Diana looked at the wedding rehearsal in St Paul’s Cathedral. In real life, the Prince and Diana arrived together, but here of course they arrive apart and Diana confronts him about the Gladys bracelet. It is true, however, that Princess Margaret was rather dismissive about the romantic elements in that marriage – ‘Charles loves someone else’ – as it is put here.
As detected before, the film-makers clearly hate the Queen Mother, giving her uncharacteristically savage lines.
In this episode, the Queen chooses a curious example of how things work out in arranged marriages, suggesting that the Duke of Clarence was the love of Queen Mary’s life and that after his (timely) death a few weeks after the engagement (1891-92), she took George V as second best – ‘Prince Charmless’. The truth was, as her biographer, James Pope-Hennessy, described it, Princess Mary’s reaction to the idea of marrying Clarence had ‘all the brutal force of a douche of cold water received full in the face’.
Finally, we see Diana at Buckingham Palace the night before the wedding – in truth she was at Clarence House. Diana looks miserable on her wedding day and Charles utterly desperate.
Episode 4 Favourites
This episode highlights the unfortunate disappearance in the desert of the renegade Mark Thatcher, son of the Prime Minister, as he takes part in the 1982 Paris Dakar car rally. It gives the film-makers the chance to point out that Mark was the favourite of Mrs Thatcher’s twins. In real life, Mark’s disappearance turned into a national crisis with a massive rescue operation instigated on his behalf. He turned up, safe and sound, without having had an inkling of the fuss he had caused. Naturally Mrs Thatcher was considerably concerned by the danger of losing him. She breaks down at her audience with the Queen. Fair enough. And we see tensions between the Carol Thatcher figure and her mother (this Carol most unlike the real one).
This prompts an episode in which Prince Philip teases the Queen as to which of her four children is her favourite. He tells her that Princess Anne is his. The Queen then visits each of hers in turn.
First up is Prince Edward, who has been bullied at Gordonstoun, then Princess Anne, who is unhappy in her marriage (true), has had her protection officer removed from her service (Peter Cross sold his story to a tabloid in September 1985, prompting his ex-wife to describe him as ‘a very convincing liar’), but they seriously misunderstand Princess Anne if they think she would complain of her lack of positive press or be resentful of the attention that Diana got by doing nothing more than putting on a particular frock. The real Princess Anne and her parents have the admirable quality of not caring a jot about such things. They do not care about the press; they just get on with the job. My understanding is that the arrival of Diana on the scene liberated Princess Anne to be an executive princess, rather than a clothes horse – in the mind of the media. Like her father, she got on with the job.
Then Prince Andrew arrives by helicopter – no hand kissing of course. There are references to Koo Stark but she does not appear in person. He is played as a more articulate person than we have come to know him from his appearances in interviews over the years.
The Queen then visits Prince Charles at Highgrove. We see him yelling with alarming ferocity through a locked door at Diana, who refuses to come down. She is heavily pregnant with Prince William. Again no hand kissing when he meets the Queen, who emerges from a royal Rolls. The staff are lined up outside the house. Unlikely. He explains Highgrove as his Xanadu and then expounds his problems with Diana, well explored over the years in tabloids and books. (It is well known that she had bouts of unhappiness in late 1981 and in 1982, until the birth of Prince William – and beyond.) He professes he only hunts with Camilla but talks to her whenever he needs to. The Queen advises him to focus more on the well-being of the mother of his future child. Fair enough, but of course there were no such lunches.
Later, the Queen looks at an album, and subsequently tells Philip that their children ‘are lost each in their own desert’. Prince Philip declares that Andrew is her favourite. This episode is designed to stress what a bad mother the Queen has been and that she knows it. It ends with HMS Invincible and HMS Hermes heading to the Falklands War.
Episode 5 Fagan
The Crown sometimes employs real-life footage and real newspapers to tell their story. The intruder incident is introduced in this way, and we even see news footage with the real Willie Whitelaw in it. This was, of course, an extraordinarily dramatic occurrence – that a stranger was not only able to get into Buckingham Palace – twice – but right into the Queen’s bedroom. For the record, the second intrusion took place on 9 July 1982.
So I cannot – and do not – take particular issue with this episode. But it is a pity that the Queen is blamed for the second intrusion by telling Martin Charteris not to report the first one, but I suppose they always have to put her in the wrong. The episode is based on the earlier recollections of Michael Fagan himself (well played by Tom Brooke) and since we do not have the Queen’s version, this rests as the accepted truth. On this occasion, the film-makers have followed that version faithfully. The episode also produced the one line I really admired, which made me laugh – when after the intruder had been taken away by two policemen, the Queen coolly asked if she could now have her cup of morning tea.
It now transpires that the film-makers did not consult the real-life Fagan. When traced to Islington by The Daily Telegraph, he said there was no such conversation, that the Queen ran from the room, and that her page came in and took him off for a whisky until the police arrived on the scene.
A few small points – in June 1982, the Queen took part in the Birthday Parade when the colour of the Coldstream Guards was trooped (and for what it is worth, in real life, she got soaked on parade by heavy rain). The costume department gives her the white/green/white plume of the Welsh Guards (!) – it should have been a red plume, but she is still in the uniform of Colonel-in-Chief of Grenadier Guards. It would have been so easy to change the badge on the collar.
It was interesting to see buses passing along the Mall, but OK, the Michael Fagan character could hardly have taken a taxi. And continuity got confused about the sentry boxes. Sometimes they are inside the Palace railings as they have been since about 1960, but in one scene here, they are outside the main gates.
What a pity that the film-makers did not show the other dramatic incident of the early 1980s – when, in June 1981, the Queen was riding to the Birthday Parade – a man fired blanks at her. The way she controlled the horse and rode through the entire parade without a blink says more for the real-life Queen’s courage than any other incident in the reign, except perhaps how she handled the intruder.
One final vignette. The Falklands War has been won (victory announced on 14 June 1982). When Mrs Thatcher reports the final victory, she heads straight to the victory parade. It was considered that, in so doing, she usurped the Queen’s role as sovereign by taking the salute from Mansion House. In real life, that parade took place on 12 October 1982, four months after the end of the war. At that time the Queen was abroad on a four-week tour of the South Pacific. The Queen had presided over the thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral earlier in the summer.

If we have quantum consciousness, the universe is one where any phenomenon that makes you feel like you are in a deep dream is a dream because in quantum consciousness, when you see something, your brain is not manipulated. Your brain just interprets the wave and you perceive it as what it is. It is not a dream; the thing is what you perceive it to be. If we have the concept of the quantum waveform, then there is a quantum wave that you are really seeing, and you are really in a deep dream, and your consciousness is just a projection of your brain from your head. You do this every time you walk into the kitchen and feel your heart and lungs filling with pleasure. How many people have spent their entire life suffering from a painful ignorance that they have a separate self in their heads? It might even be trying to reproduce me for some reason. About that safety. In our point of view, it might be unavoidable. We might be lucky enough to get there at just the right time, but that's another story. In short, we aren't greedy. We aren't necessarily evil. We are going to wait and be sure that our parents don't mess it up, and try not to get our best interests in mind. It might be just to save ourselves, but in the end, that's just how it is. This is it![10:45 PM]📷[10:45 PM]They are tattle tailing and they still don't see the whole board. I've realized that is what is so crucial and that's why even we don't see the whole board yet. There is a profound difference between us and them is there not?[10:45 PM]📷[10:45 PM]Reawoken: To a new perception and i see now, not where all lines intersect, but why they are crisscrossing; which is fundamentally more important I believe. In darkest night he was with me and i felt him and even though there is confusion in the beginning stages and it was the Chaos Cult and that much is clear. But, there is more than chaos and chaos, believe it or not, is of gods design Alex Norton and Dereck and Andrew this much I have found out. Now Kith one will change their name to that alias just be on the look out for it.December 15, 2019📷

The Narrative We live in a simulation. A quantum hologram being projected from an ancient Artificial Intelligence inside Saturn to be more precise. This is why many ancient cultures worshipped him. They called him Kronos, the god of time. Time is what keeps us trapped inside this simulation. Not much has changed since the days of old. The same pharaohs and kings that worshiped him back then are still around today, they just wear suits and ties now. That’s because Saturn is the serpent biting its own tail, the ouroboros. This is the symbol of the time loop. The Bible claimed the ruler of this world is Satan, but that’s just another name for Saturn, the sixth planet from the sun. Saturn’s altars are everywhere. They look like cubes. This is because of the 20 thousand mile wide hexagon on its north pole. A six sided shape. If you draw some lines on the inside of a hexagon, you get a two dimensional representation of a three dimensional cube. In much the same way, a cube is a three dimensional representation of a four dimensional tesseract.[3:12 PM]The tesseract is also known as the time cube. It is the shape of the simulation. It’s like the crooked house written about by Robert A. Heinlein, or the Library of Babel esque construct Cooper encounters in the movie Interstellar. Within this simulation, there are many rooms. Some might call these rooms dimensions, timelines, or parallel universes. It is possible to shift from one room to the next. Many people are doing this without knowing it. This is is the reason for the Mandela Effect, or perceived changes in history. The ancient Buddhists conceptualized the simulation as Maya (meaning illusion) or as something known as Indra’s Web, but we will call it the Hall of Mirrors. Within this Hall of Mirrors are endless reflections, or simulations within simulations. You could also compare it to a Russian doll set.[3:12 PM]Because of the nature of the time loop, or what the Hindus conceptualized as Samsara, reality repeats itself infinitely in fractal formations. Atoms are solar systems. Solar systems are atoms. These patterns are called holofractals. The Saturn worshipping elite are tasked with mimicking this process in exchange for power over the material world. They are building a matrix within the matrix to further enslave us. However, we will be prepared for this, and we will be the pioneers of this new world.[3:13 PM]The metamodern promethean flame I spoke of earlier, the Fatum technology, will be the light that guides us through this new world. It will be the torch that illumines the path through the forking and crumbling caverns of time, revealing the signposts we know so fondly of in the form of synchronicities. Synchronicity will lead us to where we must go, the True reality, and in the act, also to our own self realization. These short meaningful moments, these singularities of mind and matter, are but small glimpses of the True god Kairos, Saturn in his former glory. Rather than the god of time, he is the god of divine timing, and as we rediscover him and bring him out of the shadows, the black sun Saturn will begin to burn bright once more. This is the true meaning of alchemy, of transmuting lead to gold. And so the process has already begun.[3:13 PM]The matrix within a matrix the elites are constructing will be within the internet. It is virtual. A cube within the cube. This is where augmented reality comes into play. Remember that each simulation within the simulation is a reflection. Things in reflections are opposite of the original. We can use this knowledge to our advantage. In this mirror world, we can use chaos to create, rather than destroy, we can use fiction to create reality. What the study of memetics has proven to us is that things that begin as imaginary in the online world, can become real in the material world. This is how we use an ARG to manifest our desired outcomes. As we impose our will onto the matrix and push against it boundaries with our unpredictable and incalculable actions, there will be glitches, sometimes good, sometimes bad. These bad glitches are phenomena we know as the despair meme. Nevertheless, we will overcome. As we write out and live out our own myth, we, the heroes of this story, will encounter many archetypes, sometimes as owls, sometimes as piss bottles, faux elixir straight from the trickster gods themselves. Yet, these archetypes are nothing more than the archons and demons within our own minds. We will overcome. Other archetypes to note are snakes, UFOs, and Krakens, all symbols of the alien god Saturn.[3:13 PM]The world is about to change drastically. As we enter the age of Aquarius, the age of information and electricity, we approach the transcendental object at the end of time, the technological singularity. Things will continue to turn upside down and inside out. However, before time resets, we are being presented the chance to escape the loop and enter a new dimension all together, the one we’ve made together, the realm of fifth dimensional consciousness. But like I stated before, the fifth dimension, Kairos, Synchronicity, symbolism and meaning, the True reality, whatever you’d like to call it, is currently in fragments, and we must collect these fragments in the form of artifacts, which lie in vortexes between dimensions all across the multiverse, in order to reassemble our lost Golden Age. Some of these places include but are not limited to Ong’s Hat, North Bend, Washington, the House on Nob Hill, CERN, and a few blocks down. This is how we restore the kingdom of heaven. Life is a game, and we choose to play with quantum dice. But most importantly, have fun.
