That's an interesting notion, perhaps hyde was the most ruthless survivor, Jekyll couldn't really operate in the Victorian underworld



I happened to see this on YouTube when I was looking for something else. Gateway Pundit is portraying it accurately. He also includes the video clip.

Former Obama White House counsel Greg Craig expects to be indicted in the coming days on charges stemming from work he performed for Ukraine in 2012, Mr. Craig's legal team said.

An indictment of Mr. Craig is likely to send shock waves through the U.S. legal community and is the latest fallout from an investigation into former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his years of work for the pro-Russia regime in power in Kiev.

Hang him high! Suck it, U.S. legal community.

My book group read Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde recently. Not a big fan.


narciso, as a first entry I award you high marks as that's about the last way I would have thought of things, but as the story frames most of the gentlemen who are Jekyll's circle as flaneurs (that is, sophisticated gentlemen strollers of the night, dipping into opium dens or wherever wherever curiosity takes them), this is a very interesting angle.


It appears to be more an exposition of the freudian Id than the darwinism evolution I dont know how far such motions had gotten by the time of publications

Here's the crime report today from Berkeley. It's pretty much a typical day. Verbatim:

https://www.berkeleyside.com/2019/04/10/ berkeley-police-armed-robbery-coffee-shop -laptop-thefts-cellphone-thefts-more

"ARMED ROBBERY A man with a gun robbed a 19-year-old Berkeley woman in the 2400 block of Parker Street of her backpack, police report. Last week Tuesday, April 2, the woman was walking just after 11 p.m. on Parker near Dana Street when the man pointed the gun at her and demanded her bag. Her laptop was inside... .Witnesses said he was black, in his 30s, about 6 feet tall with a heavy build.

On April 1 at 6 p.m., a 49-year-old Berkeley man was sitting inside Berkeley Espresso working on his computer when a young man snatched the laptop and ran off with a partner, police said. BPD said the first man was described as black, 18-22 years old, 5'6"-5'8" tall with a slim build, in a black hooded top and black pants.

Two days later, April 3, a 22-year-old Oakland woman was sitting inside Alchemy at 12:55 p.m., with her computer on a table in front of her, when two people - including a man in a mask - ran in and took it. The strangers ran off. Police said the masked man was described as black, in his 20s and about 6 feet tall, wearing a black beanie cap that had eyeholes cut out of it.

Saturday, two young Berkeley women, ages 18 and 22, were waiting for the bus at about 4:50 p.m. at College Avenue and Derby Street when two strangers grabbed their phones from their hands, police said. The thieves got into a vehicle and another man drove them away. One of the men was described as black, 5 feet 8 inches tall with a medium build, with short black hair, wearing a black T-shirt. Another was described as a black man who appeared 28-30 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall.

Police arrested a Richmond man who has now been charged in connection with a laptop theft at Passione Caffe in downtown Berkeley in January. In that incident, a 33-year-old Berkeley man was sitting with his laptop in front of the café, at 91 Shattuck Square (at Addison Street), when a man ran up and took the computer. Detectives investigating the case ultimately identified 20-year-old Lonnie Deshun Jacobs as the culprit. (photo: https://www.berkeleyside.com/ wp-content/uploads/2019/04/JacobsBMG463.jpg).

Police arrested a man on probation Saturday who was searching through one vehicle after trying to steal another one, according to police. Saturday at 8 a.m., a resident in the 1800 block of Alcatraz Avenue (near Adeline Street) heard someone trying to start his vehicle. The resident went outside and found a man inside the vehicle who then rode off a bike. About 10 minutes later, a police officer found the man "rummaging through a vehicle parked several blocks away," according to police. Officers searched the man and found burglary tools and drug paraphernalia, police said. Officers arrested Ernest Bennett, 42, whose address is unknown (photo: https://www.berkeleyside.com/ wp-content/uploads/2019/04/BennettAXA532.jpg)."

0% of the suspects were white or Asian. All the rest in the report were "race unknown" (i.e. victims too afraid or PC to describe the suspect).

Berkeley is only 10% black (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berkeley,_California#Demographics).

How do the liberals maintain their cognitive dissonance without going completely insane?

Answer: They don't. Facts like the crime stats in Berkeley are exactly why they are insane.

"A few months after inauguration it was announced the WH was undergoing major renovations. There was speculation that the reason for the major renovations was because the WH was bugged and someone (Deep State?) was spying on Trump while he was in the Oval office."

So there would be hardware found, right?
And other clues perhaps of the installers and time of installation.



Short but interesting thread.

Does anyone remember reading about an FBI informant who said he had SEEN the indictments of Brennan and Comey? This was back in January.

Captain Hate

Take a look at the 2014 revolution in Ukraine. Every single person involved in this scam, including McCain, Manafort and Nuland, was involved in that revolution.

By now everyone pretty much knows what happened in 2016. The why it happened is next.

Jim Jordan just stated on Hannity that McCabe and Strzok were in trouble.
Greg Craig we already know about.
I agree with Clarice.
That group has lied throughout this whole illegal treasonous enterprise.


Baker testimony released today stated that there was a real move to invoke Article 25 and that Rosenstein had s part in it.So now we have McCabe and Baker stating Rosenstein played a part.
Are both lying 🤥?

Captain Hate

This is revolting:




And a GOP-led congressional subcommittee, led by Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.), is planning to hold a hearing next week to review the work of John Huber, the special U.S attorney named a year ago to investigate all things Clinton.

That hearing is designed to determine how much money and resources Huber has dedicated to the investigation and whether any action might be expected on issues that long have concerned conservatives, including Hillary Clinton’s transmission of classified information over an insecure private email server and the foundation’s activities.

A prosecutor working for Huber called MDA Analytics last week, seeking copies of their evidence, according to sources. The firm told the prosecutor that the FBI has possessed the evidence in its Little Rock office since early 2018, the sources said.

Basically, Huber requested whistle blower evidence that had already been sent to him twice. It wasn't until Meadows asked him to testify that he requested the same evidence that he already had. I don't have much faith in Huber.


At least Horowitz has a track record of trying to get to the end of fast and furious what are hubers bonafides


Ig, you're hopeless.

narciso, the world of the 1890s had already done the best they could to understand and assimilate Darwin, but Freud wasn't widely translated and had no particular influence in England (as he himself points out in the second preface to The Interpretation of Dreams) until about 1915. Then he and his influence shot off like a rocket (see Woolf, Joyce, Faulkner, etc.).

President Trump calls Robert Mueller’s probe an ‘attempted coup’ https://trib.al/hFKv6gW


That information is very disturbing.We have been waiting for months for some movement or progress from him and obviously this is a low priority for him and the Justice Department.What is the information doing in Arkansas?
What is the statute of limitations on the charges for the Clinton Foundation and her emails and server?


President Trump calls the Mueller investigation an attempted coup?
Is this finally the moment that we acknowledge that Trump Mueller and Rosenstein were not working together on a soft coup?

Tom R

I think this comment from Barr confirms he is not starting a new investigation and instead is doing what I suggested earlier. The team he is creating is taking the evidence from the Horowitz IG investigation and Nunes referrals to make a decision on who to indict.

AG William Barr: Yeah, I, uh, as I said in my confirmation hearing, I am going to be reviewing both the genesis and the conduct of intelligence activities directed at the Trump campaign during 2016. And, uh, alot of this has already been investigated, and a substantial portion of this has been investigated, and is being investigated, by the office of the inspector general at the department. But one of the things I want to do is pull together all the information from the investigations that have gone on, including on the Hill and the department, and see if there are any remaining questions to be addressed.


Nytol. Will catch up tomorrow in the afternoon. The "bomb cyclone" (overhyped) means that I do hear thunder here in Lincoln and we'll have rain overnight. But that's good for all the growing things, plus I love the sound of thunder, so bring it on. Really no snow likely. Nor any particular death or destruction, despite the Weather Channel. Sorry about the real snow GUS, henry,et al. are truly getting to the north and east. It'll melt soon!

This is fine news, indeed. It explains my self-loathing.

narciso, I think the story is among other things a rebuttal of Nietzsche's embrace of godless power: Stevenson was an agnostic and rejected the piety he got from his Scottish nurse, but he never gave up all told on God, I don't think. The role of retribution/natural law in his plots tells you something. Now I'm really out of here! Tomorrow! (today was a good, good day).

I think what the Democrats are doing with the Border is TREASONOUS. Their Open Border mindset is putting our Country at risk. Will not let this happen!


Truth is not a defense unfortunately:



Knorr and fellow Mantria co-founder Troy Wragg both graduated in 2005 from Temple University and within four years had raised $54 million from hundreds of investors. Most of the investors were wooed through seminars run by Wayde McKelvey, of Colorado.
Their pitch about producing biochar, however, turned out to be completely baked, according to prosecutors, and eventually proved to be a giant Ponzi scheme.

"Many people lost their entire life savings," assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Livermore said following Knorr's sentencing.

Former President Bill Clinton personally honored their now disgraced work in a ceremony for the Clinton Global Initiative in 2009. Wragg met with the president of the Ivory Coast to discuss how biochar could transform energy production in the small African nation.

This is a thread written by a professor of organic chemistry there who is staunchly libertarian. He had a 20-minute conversation with Moore after his talk. I found this interesting.

Breaking my Zerohedge pledge to link this report on world IQ.
It's interesting because I have always noted that, while most violent countries seemed to largely track with higher black populations, there have always been outliers in Central America with quite low black populations.
By a quick look at the map, it seems that private violence [as opposed to government violence, which can occur anywhere] is much more closely correlated with IQ than race.

I'm pretty sure someone already posted this, but I found this in the article:

"But Tocheri says there may be another explanation: a different migration out of Africa, not by Homo erectus but by some other more apelike species that settled in remote parts of Asia.

"That's where it gets exciting," Tocheri says. "Because, if it's true that the other species of early Homo also made it out [of Africa], it means that what we're finding in Asia is even more complex and more interesting than we ever dreamed of."

I think this is highly likely. There is no reason that I can think of that would prevent much earlier migrations.

There could have been large populations outside of Africa. Most probably were lost do to disasters of one sort or another.

Has Assange/Wikileaks ever released any leaks damaging to Putin? I’m not aware of any.

IMO the publishing of the DNC email hack and the Podesta emails helped Trump get elected. However the Trump DOJ issued an arrest order for Assange in December 2017 related to the Bradley Manning leak. Too many unconnected dots to figure out what is going on right now.


My whole thing about Assange is that I don't trust an Australian national to make decisions about what information should be released from our government.

I am all for transparency, and I no longer have much respect for the FBI nor the CIA, but careless handling of some information could get innocent people killed.
