ALL ABOARD THE TRUMP TRAIN! KANSAS CITY SOUTHERN RAIL & USMCA DD

ALL ABOARD THE TRUMP TRAIN! KANSAS CITY SOUTHERN RAIL & USMCA DD

# WSB Learns Chapter 2: An Introduction to the Mexican-American Economy

# Calls

- KSU 7/24 145c

# My motivation

I am a Mexican-American software engineer in the US & avocado farmer in Mexico. I'm here to bring TAQUITOS during these trying times. I have come with fresh research off the tortilla press for my amigos at Wall Street Bets
I'm sitting here getting used to my NEW Gigabyte 17 with NVIDIA RTX that I bought with the TORO PLAY from my last DD on CDN infrastructure & serverless computing. It was quite successful, as Fastly rallied beyond the success of market favorites like Zoom.
I need to get used to the keyboard and writing on non-Macs again so I figured to write about my next play. Kansas City Southern is a very uniquely positioned business that plays an important role in all of our lives. It is the rail the connects the US and Mexico and it will grow with the release of USMCA on July 1st and Trump's infrastructure bill.
My style of investing is principled by exercising common sense and investing in deep market relationships - I am not generally interested in investing in only a product, but how the product fits and its impact on an economic model

# USMCA FACTS

The USMCA is a 1 Trillion+ restructuring

Mexico is critically underbanked and underserved by technology and trade potential. Bullish for CDNs,telecom, fintech, and regulating tech like Docusign.

Agriculture and seasonal patterns in Mexico & the US is robust and symbiotic

Bullish for shipping and supply chain operations (Shopify, Walmart, Costco, rail)

Bullish note on energy markets, where efficiencies will need to increase to accommodate new asset allocations

# Important Relationships

  • Financial services expanding trading opportunities
  • US-Texas economics
  • Mexican-Nuevo Leon economics
  • Texas growing mastery in energy and supply-chain markets
  • Mexican need for increased energy effeciency & market regulation
  • The South Texas Basin & North Mexican potential for natural gas
  • The Gulf of Mexico Liquid Natural Gas pipeline
  • Laredo border, Houston, Monterrey position in world trade.
  • The undoing of economic bottlenecks in natural gas and digital trade

# What to Consider

- My calls are always an exercise of common sense. Mexico and the US have a tightly coupled trading relationship. The USMCA stands to invigorate that relationship and emphasize successes in energy production, manufacturing price parity, and tech-invoked trade access. The exercising of law will result in institutional confidence, resulting in reasonable profits from July-September.

Mexico is Buy American as a nation. It has a tightly coupled relationship with American output.

- NAFTA ends June 30th and the USMCA goes into effect July 1st. The US is the last nation ready to prepare the changes.
- Trump will soon be under pressure for some form of economic stimulus. This may be in the form of an infrastructure bill by the time September or the election rolls around.
- The USMCA modernizes up cross border digital trade and seeks to modernize some structural changes that have transformed in the energy industries invoking industrial surplus. This will increase the rate of exchange
- These changes from Facebook (WhatsApp), Walmart, Amazon, Costco, Shopify, Cloudflare, Paypal, and other important supply chain players like SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS to supercharge trade between the two nations.
- These changes also encourage energy production between US & Mexico, where Mexico has fallen behind and Texas has exceeded.
- NO this DD is not about the obvious auto-manufacturing benefit. It is an important factor but there is plenty of evidence that only focuses on that element of the USMCA.
- Kansas City Southern is one of the ten Class-I Railroads of the US. It is the ONLY Class-I Railroad that connects the US & Mexico and runs along the Gulf of Mexico. This results in streamlined cross-border energy and product trades. This also means that KSU stands to agnostically benefit from economic improvements in energy output and nation building from both the US & Mexico.
- Mexico is an important bulwark nation for the US to bolster as a partner against Chinese economic threat. Its relationship with US is far different than international partners like Germany, India, and Japan. There is a far greater efficiency potential between the two nations across many industries related to logistics, mining, energy, manufacturing, telecom, and agriculture.
- Mexico's higher education and English learners have rapidly increased as Mexico radically approaches middle incomes and its narcotics problem. By most accounts, the US is least behind in terms of social policy regarding The Drug War. The US stands to adapt and benefit most rapidly from the economic bottleneck the Drug War has produced.
- Migration is complex between the two nations. It is arguably a symbiotic relationship regarding wages, education, crime, and currency parity with respects to US & Mexico.

1994, the signing of NAFTA was a consequential inflection point in economic history.

Mexico serves as important trading vector and access point to increase global price efficiencies in auto markets, energy, materials, agriculture, and labor.


# The Product

Kansas City Southern is a relatively small railroad compared to other systems like Union Pacific. You can argue that this is beneficial as is allows the railroad to execute and iterate more rapidly to changes and optimize for efficiencies that larger railroads cannot.
KSU does this with Precision Railroad Scheduling along with other Class-I railroads but to great effect. In simple terms, this means that railroads prioritize the scheduling of arrival and departures over the weight and output of each train run. This has resulted in
  • Greater speed
  • Greater flexibility to economic changes (Amazon, energy, etc)
  • Greater competition to trucking
  • Increased fuel efficiency
  • Greater economic output
  • Reduced costs for rail trade
This is an excellent primary for economic growth.

List of traded goods managed by KSU

Diversified to benefit & reflect Mexican-American progress
Institutional restructuring

Market ineffeciencies will rebalance with USMCA changes.

# The Macroeconomic view of Texas & Nuevo Leon's economic zones

The reality is that there are logistical positions in Texas and Monterrey trade vectors that is strategically advantageous. Monterrey is a trading city located near the southern border that operates as an important global industrial zone for products and services delivered from Samsung, MSCI Financial, Toyota, Siemens, and the like because the region's geography permits it.
The story is quite simple. Mexico needs more energy output. Texas has it. Mexican can grow it. The USMCA is designed to directly benefit the economies of Mexico & Texas.
Monterrey, of course, is not the only important vector in Mexico that KSU falls under. Guadalajara, Jalisco houses Tesla operations and runs global avocado trade alongside the State of Michaocan. There are plenty of other examples.

Two cooperative, regional populists at the helm.

Mexico is primed for American economic bolstering and standardization.


KSU overlaps directly with state growth points


Mexico's untapped energy potential behaves almost like an extension of Texas and south basin opportunities.

KSU ultimately double-dips from the changes.

Texas GDP 1.8T. Mexican GDP 1.2T.

KSU advantages optomizes cross-border trading directly with Mexico's strategic advancement of Monterrey

# My record

I'm fairly conservative in my choice to purchase option or stock. I'm a software engineer that's passionate about education and have really enjoyed exercising my knowledge-base during this investment time. Usually i get really excited about a stock or two at best per year based on certain global developments. These stocks are selected based on powerful and consequential market relationships or competitions occurring in the arena and by simply just participating in the market as much as I can myself.
I have made a fair amount of money with
  • REDACTEDcoin & AMD's computing relationship (Bought REDACTEDcoin at 2k, AMD at $11)
  • E-Commerce and Facebook's growing relationship with small businesses (my first options reached 20x on FB)
  • Privacy [CloudFlare, Big Tech, US, China, and global development]
  • Automation, manufacturing, and battery improvements [Panasonic, FANUC, Texas, Mexico and Japan]
  • Mexican-American trade [Kansas City Union, USMCA, and the Mexican economy]
  • Virtual Reality, gaming, AI with user-experience support, and fintech [Zoomers & you]

2020.03.21 00:02 the_nun_one From Here to Fra'ternity: The Brahpocalypse

"…and finally, make sure you file them under “R” for “Reports”, okay? It’s a new SOP as of last week and counterintuitive as fuck, but put dailies under “D” and they’ll ride your ass so hard you might as well come into work with a saddle. They also have to be submitted to be in by 2pm ‘cause the New York office needs them by end of day- ”
“Brah-”
“Seriously dude, knock it off with that. Do you even listen? All day with you new guys - brah, brah, brah!” I threw up my hands, then planted them with exerted calm on the conference table before continuing:
“Like I was saying: New York’s three hours ahead – remember hours? Eh bud?” I needled, snapping my fingers in front of Brian’s slacking eye sockets. “So all you have to do is print out two copies, hope that fucking Andy has remembered to email them first…”
“What’s this about fucking Andy?” He swaggered around the corner, hands in pocket: the Cheshire cat of shit-eating grins and inopportune appearances. “S’what your mom did last night bro…sorry she wasn’t there to help you change outta your jammies this morning. Too busy enjoying the breakfast sausage.” Andy motioned to what can most aptly be described as his junk.
“But hey! No disrespect; didn’t mean to tread on your sister’s hand-me-down coattails there. Whatcha got – another corporate collective zombie to train? ” Andy stuck out the pulpy starfish he calls a hand towards Brian. “Don’t worry amigo - I won’t bite! Unless you bite first, you feel? HA! Got a name there sport?”
“Br-”
“Oh my god, who’s this little guy? Aw, they muzzled him up like a bad puppy!”
Mandy’s head poked out from her office. Any backyard anthropologist will notice the intimate correlation between Andy’s trolling and Mandy wanting a piece of his dick. He tolerates it, largely because I think he likes the idea of screaming the closest thing to his own name in bed. Frankly, neither one of them are well-stocked enough in the intelligence department to consider much beyond the details of their own existence; guess that’s why Brian didn’t bat an eyelash. He just pawed at the air and moaned, “….BRAINS.”
You know, typical zombie.
*

They called it “From Here to Fra’ternity”, but history has since rebranded the event “BRAHPOCALYPSE”: a convention of thirty-six nationally-recognized fraternities (including Pi-Pi, which all members pronounced as “ Pee-pee”) for a total of two hundred and forty-one local chapters, constituting a membership of nearly ten thousand stalwart bros.
It only took one.
Blaine Bartley of SUNY Oneonta – grad. 2021, BS in Global Finance – visited the Florida Keys on spring break with his Wolf Pack, where they charged a speed boat rental to the credit card of one Mr. Benjamin Bartley (of Bartley, Bartley, Haversham & Roche). It was there, near an offshore archipelago, that Blaine’s left foot was compromised by what we now know to be a zombified coral polyp. The polyp had no vertebrae, or the ability to move beyond a six-inch radius - but to Blaine’s credit, he was pretty drunk at the time.
The notorious bite occurred four days before “From Here to Fra’ternity” was scheduled to unfold and set Blaine on a path that, over the course of several days, would change his life - hell, all of our lives - forever.
When the authorities were called to the Connecticut Convention Center the Tuesday following “Fraternity”’s anticipated end, they found the main conference hall in utter destruction. Stuffed to the ceiling was a seething mass of ashen-faced humanity; bros facedown in keg buckets, bros staggering about with lilted gaits, all missing elements of clothing, speech perfectly indecipherable. At first, it was unclear whether or not anything unusual had happened. It was only when local police found a pledge who had been locked in a steamer trunk two days earlier that the world gain testimony to the events which took place that fateful April.
*
*
*
As the immediate shock and confusion began to settle, Kevin Resnick's (Beta Theta Pi) father first took up the baton of matriculating the Living Dead back into society. According to Russell Resnick, no son of his was going to be euthanized just to appease some liberal media hoax or “the greater good”. A week later, he received a call from Jim Whitman (R-Oklahoma), a congressman with a lone zombie scion (Peter Whitman, USC class of 2023) and a “pro-Life” bill that mandated government-subsidized muzzles and job placement programs for all the boys affected by “our nation’s greatest tragedy.”
Soon Wall Street, GM, Facebook, Google and many others nobly stepped up to the plate, adopting Undead (and unsalaried) workers into the fold. And to their credit, the herds of Theta Kappa, Phi Beta Kappa, Pi Beta Phi, et al. performed with aplomb in their new positions, all proving at least as proficient as their predecessors where filing, photocopying, paper shredding, and managing multi-million dollar national corporations were concerned. Perhaps it was their initial disinterest in anything cranial that kept them from feasting on their coworkers and clients; perhaps it was an innate chivalric regard for mankind.
In fact, the hordes of Reanimates seemed positively…well, animated when they received their per diem: a bucket of brains slid into the holding cubicle each morning by HR. The general public remained in the dark, as industry titans shook one another's hands in determination that the average American would never understand how a company - much less a swathe of tent-pole corporations - could survive with such consistent brain drain. Really it was best that there be nobody to ask questions.
And so the unspoken rule became: don't ask questions...and don't get attached to the interns.

2019.09.11 14:16 Im-a-molecule [Artist Spotlight] - Ween

Ween
alt rock experimental total experience
Similar Artists
Ween were the ultimate cosmic goof of the alternative rock era, a prodigiously talented and deliriously odd duo whose work traveled far beyond the constraints of parody and novelty into the heart of surrealist ecstasy. Despite a mastery of seemingly every mutation of the musical spectrum, the group refused to play it straight; in essence, Ween were bratty deconstructionists, kicking dirt on the pop world around them with demented glee. Along with the occasional frat-boy lapses into misogyny, racism, and homophobia, the band's razor-sharp satire cut to the inherently silly heart of rock & roll with hilariously acute savagery; fueled by psilocybin mushrooms and an all-consuming craving for hot meals, Ween created their own self-contained universe, a parallel dimension where the only sacred cow was their own demon god, the Boognish.
The duo formed in suburban New Hope, Pennsylvania in 1984, when 14 year olds Mickey Melchiondo and Aaron Freeman adopted their respective fraternal aliases, Dean and Gene Ween, and cut the first of literally thousands of home recordings. At about the same time, Freeman -- working under the name Synthetic Socks -- issued an eponymous 1987 solo cassette on the fledgling TeenBeat label, Ween released their own debut tape, The Crucial Squeegie Lip, on their own Bird O' Pray imprint. After a pair of 1988 self-releases, titled Axis: Bold as Boognish and The Live Brain Wedgie/WAD LP, Ween signed to the Minneapolis-based independent label Twin/Tone, which in 1990 issued the double album GodWeenSatan: The Oneness, a sprawling, often brilliant release that careened from the headlong hardcore rush of the opening "You Fucked Up" to the helium pop of "Don't Laugh I Love You" to the Prince-Xeroxed funk of "L.M.L.Y.P."
A move to the Shimmy Disc label followed prior to the release of 1991's The Pod, another masterpiece of dementia recorded on four-track under the influence of inhaled Scotchgard; darker and more deranged than its predecessor, The Pod expanded the Ween palette to include Beatlesque pop (the sublime "Pork Roll Egg and Cheese"), oddball folk ("Oh My Dear [Falling in Love]"), and mystic hard rock ("Captain Fantasy"). Against all odds, the record won Ween a deal with major-label Elektra; against even greater odds, the leap to the big leagues did nothing to alter the duo's mindset. Pure Guava, their Elektra debut released in 1992, was their most consistently weird and wonderful outing to date. Highlighted by the disturbingly infectious single "Push th' Little Daisies" (a Top Ten hit in Australia), Pure Guava found the group as snarky as ever on self-explanatory workouts like "Reggaejunkiejew," "Hey Fat Boy (Asshole)," and "Flies on My Dick"; "Springtheme" mocked love songs at their queasiest; while the climactic "Don't Get 2 Close (2 My Fantasy)" distilled the overblown excesses of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and Queensrÿche's "Silent Lucidity" into an epic art rock portrait of child molestation.
Dedicated to the late comedic actor John Candy, 1994's Chocolate and Cheese -- its title a perfect summation of the duo's blend of R&B and schlock -- upped the ante yet again. Widening the net to ensnare cowboy songs ("Drifter in the Dark"), Philly soul ("Freedom of '76"), Afro-Caribbean funk ("Voodoo Lady"), and Sergio Leone-inspired spaghetti Western epics ("Buenas Tardes Amigo"), Chocolate and Cheese also featured "Spinal Meningitis (Got Me Down)" and "Mister Would You Please Help My Pony," two of the creepiest tales of childhood trauma ever committed to vinyl. Having taken their anything-goes aesthetic to its logical extreme, Ween took a sharp left turn for 1996's 12 Golden Country Greats, a ten-track concept album recorded in Nashville with Music City session luminaries including the Jordanaires, Bobby Ogdin, Russ Hicks, Hargus "Pig" Robbins, and Charlie McCoy. While the song titles alone -- among them "Japanese Cowboy," "Mister Richard Smoker," and "Help Me Scrape the Mucus Off My Brain" -- served notice that the group's lyrical attitude had not altered one whit, the music was remarkably evocative of Nashville's golden era, and performed with skill and affection.
A tour with Ogdin and a backing unit dubbed the Shit Creek Boys (which included steel guitarist Stuart Basore, guitarist Danny Parks, fiddler Hank Singer, and bassist Matt Kohut) followed prior to the release of 1997's The Mollusk, a concise, mock-progressive semi-concept album that proved to be one of Ween's strongest efforts. The follow-up was a double-disc concert compilation, Paintin' the Town Brown: Ween Live '90-'98, issued in 1999. In the spring of 2000, the duo resurfaced with White Pepper, their first new studio effort in three years; it peaked at 121 on the Billboard charts, their highest placing to date.
In 2001, Ween began releasing a series of live albums through their Internet-based independent label, Chocodog. The first of these, Live in Toronto Canada, captured a show with the Shit Creek Boys. Around this time, the band and Elektra parted ways, and Ween were without a record label as they worked on their eighth studio album. After a wait of two years -- during which time they released another live album, the triple-disc Live at Stubb's -- they signed with Sanctuary Records in 2003, releasing Quebec in August of that year. It was the first Ween album to crack the Top 100, peaking at 81.
A few months after the release of Quebec, another independent live album followed (All Request Live), with additional retrospectives arriving in 2004 (Live in Chicago, a combination DVD/CD set) and 2005 (the rarities compilation Shinola, Vol. 1). Ween headed back into the studio to work on their ninth studio album, and the resulting La Cucaracha arrived in October 2007 (prefaced by the Friends EP earlier in the year). Recording activity began again in 2009, but nothing appeared forthcoming from the band. In 2012, Gene released a solo album -- a tribute to the songs of Rod McKuen called Marvelous Clouds -- under his given name of Aaron Freeman. Shortly after its release, he announced to Rolling Stone that the band had ended its run.
For the next few years, it seemed as if Ween really had ended. Freeman released an album of original songs called Freeman and Melchiondo formed the Dean Ween Group, starting work on an album that appeared in the fall of 2016. By that point, Ween had reunited. The group played its first concerts in five years that February, and throughout the year, the band played festivals and concerts, culminating with the release of the archival GodWeenSatan: Live in November. Ween's live reunion continued through 2017.
Performing, The Mollusk
The Mollusk is the sixth studio album by American rock band Ween, released by Elektra Records on June 24, 1997. It is a multi-genre concept album with a dark nautical theme, with most songs incorporating elements from psychedelia and/or sea shanties while also featuring a heavy progressive rock influence. Dean Ween described the album as "the only record that I ever felt really confident about" and "my favorite record we've ever done." Gene Ween has echoed the same sentiment, saying "The Mollusk is probably my favorite, at the end of the day."
Starting with the release of their 1994 album Chocolate and Cheese, Aaron Freeman and Mickey Melchiondo began to significantly enhance their approach to studio recording. While their earlier albums were almost entirely recorded by Freeman and Melchiondo themselves at their home using a 4-track recorder, Chocolate and Cheese marked the first time the band produced an album in a professional recording studio. It also notably began their transition from a duo to a more traditional band with the addition of drummer Claude Coleman, allowing Freeman and Melchiondo to experiment with a wider range of musical styles than they could with the drum machine used on previous releases.
Though Ween's 1996 album 12 Golden Country Greats was their first record to feature a full-fledged band on each track, these songs were recorded with various Nashville session musicians and was viewed by the band as more of a spin-off album in the vein of The Beach Boys' Christmas Album than a true follow-up to Chocolate and Cheese. The Mollusk was the debut album for keyboardist Glenn McClelland, and with bassist Dave Dreiwitz joining shortly before the album’s release, the band finally evolved into the final five-man incarnation that continues to this day.
The cover art, and all related artwork for The Mollusk, was done by Storm Thorgerson, the graphic designer who designed many of Pink Floyd's album covers, including The Dark Side of the Moon. After Thorgerson heard the album, he liked the band so much that he decided to do all the related promo and poster art in addition to the cover art for which he was hired, for no extra charge. As a result, all artwork, including all print ads associated with The Mollusk at the time, were done by Thorgerson.

2019.08.12 07:41 innnnmotion Reflections on 2 weeks in Tijuana (from someone who did not go for sex tourism)

I must admit that before arriving to Tijuana, I knew very little of the city. In part, this was intentional. I liked to travel to places with an almost blank slate, allowing whatever experiences happen to wash over me, building from nothing with as little preconceived notions of where the hell I might be as possible. When it came to Tijuana, I knew oh so very little. I knew it was a border town and I knew there was some sort of a wall. I also briefly lived in Mexico City and dated someone there who was from TJ—as I've found so many like to call it. When she told me this was her home, it was quickly followed by an almost literal bold-face asterisk: "It's not just what you hear in the news and it has so much more to offer." I admittedly hadn't heard the news, but I assumed this news was not the good kind of news. And it's true, the news is, well… often not good. USA Today recently named it the most dangerous city in the world and, just one weekend before my arrival, 31 people were killed within city limits. But whatever. I wasn't going to let the news stop me. Hell, I hadn't even read the news until well after into my arrival to even allow myself to be affected by it. All I knew was that I had just finished a stint exploring up the East Coast of the U.S. and down the West Coast, and it was very important for me to take a bus to the border and walk into Mexico. And that's just what I did.
 
HOW TO PRONOUNCE TIJUANA
Really quick just to get this out of the way, because I keep hearing my fellow gringos fucking this up too much to let it slide. If you're saying "tee-a-wa–na," you've been throwing in an extra syllable. Make it easier on yourself and say "tee-hooa-na." Or if that's too much, just say "TJ."
 
CROSSING THE BORDER
The walk into Mexico was… surprisingly uneventful. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but what I found were personality-devoid border security agents who simply asked how long I was going to be in Mexico ("I'd like the six month visa please"), would I be paying the fee in pesos or dollars (500 pesos), and not to lose the paper (like I did once before). "Great, enjoy. Bienvenidos." I walked onward and the sign above shortly after confirmed his greeting. I was on my way with Mexico to my left, leaving behind the USofA for the unforeseeable future.
 
LAS PLAYAS DE TIJUANA
I still had my Telcel sim card leftover from my CDMX days (which, for the record, works great in the states on the T-Mobile network at a fraction of the cost). While there are cheaper options, if you're looking to cover a lot of Mexican ground, I'd recommend this company as they reportedly have the best coverage. You can also use their app to manage your data usage and load top-ups. 5GB/month will set you back a mere ~13USD. Because of this, I was able to book an Uber directly from the border to Lifestyle Hostel, one of two that exists in Tijuana. It's strange to me that the city doesn't have more of a hostel culture considering it's entirely primed for it with its endless supply of nightlife partying, but I guess that's just not the reputation it has right now. Perhaps one day.
This particular hostel is one block off the beach and boardwalk in an area simply known as Playas de Tijuana. Lifestyle boasts high reviews and at $14 a night for a dorm bed (that's low-end here) with little competition and I can see why. It's a competently ran place situated above, get this, a jiu jitsu studio. The man who did my check-in offered complimentary classes (I think), to which I did not take him up on, but I appreciated nonetheless. Instead, I wanted to take a stroll of the area and my surroundings. I came to Tijuana for whatever it had to offer after all. I was there on a Wednesday night just before sundown strolling along the boardwalk heading towards la frontera, the infamous physical barrier between here and there. Mariachi men were playing the standards, everything from hot dogs to half-dozen shrimp on a stick could be purchased, and families were soaking in the last of the waves and rays. I found a place to sit for a while, just to revel in the sights, sounds, and smells as I felt absolutely giddy at the fact that I was back in Latinolandia once again. Once I finished basking in this delight, I headed towards the wall. You'll first see it off in the distance, a strange and not at all solid structure that flimsy just shoots off and comes to an abrupt stop in the ocean, almost as if the damn thing is afraid of water. It doesn't look at all effective or menacing, it's not even a wall as much as it's a series of inter-connecting slats. A fence, one might say. Maybe that's why they shout to build a wall. What I found incredibly interesting is how the two countries treat this structure. On the American side, it doesn't appear you can get anywhere within 30 meters of thing. Hell, there's actually another wall behind this wall and a road in between with very official looking vehicles occasionally on patrol. But over here? Over here it carries the sort of character you'd expect from Mexicans. Every section for a good couple of kilometers is covered in mural after mural, some illustrating the divide of nations with another reminding us that everyone is an immigrant. Some are deeply political and some are hopeful and speaks to the unity of humanity. Some just want to express their love for the person their dating. This structure that was meant to say, "get out and stay out," has been transformed into a place of unrestrained expression. Across the street sits a café named Felices días del amor y la soledad (Happy days of love and loneliness).
 
ZONA NORTE
While I enjoyed the evening at the beach, I am and will always be a city kid at heart, so the next morning I packed up my stuff, ate a street tamale, and took an Uber towards "the city." For reference, here's a map of the areas that most tourists will find themselves.
In the north right along the border you have the most infamous part of town: Zona Norte. While small, it's complete with the seediest sides of life. Sex workers on the streets, noticeable drug use and signs of addiction, and high-end sex clubs. This area is not for the faint of heart. I saw someone getting a blowjob in a parking lot, a lady with makeup running down her face while shooting up in the middle of the day, unofficial "police" chatting up the street-level sex workers, and… some great taco stands. Sex work is decriminalized in Mexico, meaning that in most areas, you don't need license to work in this industry and you won't find yourself in legal trouble for trying to solicit or procure it. In many respects, this is a wonderful thing. Those selling and buying can conduct business that will happen regardless without fearing for their legal well-being. I only wish that the area was safer for everyone involved. It's said that police have completely abandoned Zona Norte, leaving much of it up to self-governance. Enough gets said and written about here, particularly among horny U.S. tourists visiting the renowned Hong Kong Gentlemen's Club. I on the other hand did not partake in any of the trade. It's not out of some moral opposition, but generally… it's just not my thing.
I do want to talk about the bar Zacazonapan, or simply Zacaz as those here call it. Said to have been put on the map to the external non-TJ crowd by Manu Chao, Zacaz lies just on the border of—but still very much in—Zona Norte. To explain Zacaz, you have to understand marijuana in Tijuana. While literally just over the border in San Diego you can buy weed from dispensaries with a credit card, the attitude in Tijuana and much of Mexico is less than accepting. Much of the drug world, including yerba, is Narco controlled. For that reason alone, until this relationship becomes decoupled, the plant will always have a troubled reputation. Zacaz, on the other hand, is a green lover's haven. For whatever reason, much like all of Zona Norte, the police look away. You need to be over 18 and show an ID to get in, regardless of your age, but I assume this is more of a self-imposed restriction rather than any actual legal obligation. The bar resides below ground in a very dim and incredibly dive environment. They sell a vast selection of not one but two beers available only by the bottle and only by the liter. The first time I walked in, I saw nothing but a cloud of thick weed smoke, 4 person tables lining the outer perimeter, and a bong resting right there and center on the bar. Now I've been to my fair share of dives in my life, but I must say, this is a truly special place. You never know what you'll get. The way the seating works, you're almost always interacting with people you don't know. The patrons are rolling joints out on the tables, sipping their beers out of plastic cups, and dancing in the center of the bar on very sticky floors. You get all types, ages, and backgrounds here. The music will jump around like crazy from 80s synth pop, metal, to Latin ballads. People will dance sporadically, get into lengthy conversations, argue, and break out into fist-throwing fights. On one particular night, I witness a chubby man in his 50s dancing to Juan Gabriel while an older sex worker was being pushed out with a bar stool by the staff for trying to steal some drugs off another patron. Words will never fully capture the complete essence of what Zacaz has to offer. Much like the multifacetedness of humanity, Zacaz demands to be witnessed and accepted for everything it is.
 
EL CENTRO AND AV. REVOLUCIÓN
Literally across the street from Zona Norte is the main downtown and tourist strip named Avenida Revolución. Marking the start is Arco Monumental, acting as a gateway to what the city has to offer. On Revolución, you'll find an incredible array of dive bars dating back sometimes more than half a century. You'll find an ever-exploding craft beer scene, offering some of the finest in the field. On the food side, you can go high-end or eat just as deliciously on the streets. You can also get your fill of independent cinema. Here's a list of my standouts:
I could keep going. I really could. This street has so much to offer, all hours of the day, all days of the week. Honestly you can't go wrong just showing up and sometimes following the sounds to where ever they may lead. Music pours onto every nook.
I have a few other mentions of places that might fall in el centro territory or not as city and neighborhood boundaries always get a little fuzzy, but I can't go without at least mentioning them and the quality experiences they provided.
 
CECUT AND ZONA RIO
A little to the east of the party scene that is Av. Revolución, you'll find the Tijuana Cultural Center (CECUT). Encompassed within this orb of a standout architectural sight is a cultural hub for all. It has the only IMAX theater in town showing an array of films in a 360-degree field. Museo de las Californias can be found within, boasting both a permanent collection as well as rotating exhibits. When I was there, stills from the film Roma were on display. There's a tranquil garden, Jardin Caracol, that contains Mesoamerican sculptures, an array of unique plants from around the region, and a quiet escape from the city that surrounds it. CECUT also offers a nice outdoor area that provides an assortment of weekend activities, like a vegan food festival or an indigenous peoples' dance festival.
Cross the street and you'll find yourself in the popular Plaza Rio, an outdoor shopping mall that'll have all your chains, retail shops, and a large Cinepolis movie theater with the latest blockbusters shown in both Spanish and English.
 
ALBERCAS WATER PARK VERGEL
If you're here during the warmer months, do yourself a favor and make it out to this robust water park of high-intensity water slide attractions. Unlike the States, you won't find any price gouging here. Entrance tickets are 180MXN (~9USD) and the food and alcohol prices inside are the same you would pay outside. The music was all over the place and for a while was playing some real 80s bangers that just made the whole experience a treat. It's most known for the Slip N Fly, a slide that requires your to go down head first and launches your body 20 meters into the air before plummeting into the water however you find yourself landing. I did it only once and still felt bruised on my left thigh four days later. It's no joke and it's awesome. But come for the day, drink clamatos, hang out in the wave pool, and make some Mexican friends. I went on a Tuesday and stayed for the whole day. While the park was busy, I never had to wait more than a couple of minutes in line. They seem to have a nice system. You can also bring outside food and utilize one of their many BBQ grills.
 
HOW TO MEET PEOPLE AND FIND EVENTS
As a white guy with blue eyes and somewhat passible Spanish, I found it both easy and accessible to meet people and find events. As with most places in the world though, I recommend using the tools out there.
TJ has a decent Couchsurfing community. Even if you don't use it for lodging, if you travel and want to meet people, the Hangouts feature on the app is an invaluable resource for getting connected with the people who live there and are in the know. Within an hour of turning the app on and broadcasting to others that I wanted to hangout, I had a few people offering to show me around.
As far as finding events, my number one go-to almost anywhere in the world in major cities is thus: go to Facebook, click on events, click on discover, limit the search to the city and the dates you'll be there. Mark yourself as interested in events you may like and then just… show up! Especially while traveling in places where you might stand out, it's not uncommon that people will come up and talk to you. I didn't find this happened as much here as it did in, say Guatemala City, and perhaps that's because of the proximity to the U.S. border and the occasional saturation of gringos in these parts. Generally, though, these apps are tools to find things to do, meet people with common interests, and using that as a launching point to then get connected and in the social circles of those who live where you're traveling.
 
BRIEF CONCLUSION
Tijuana. You're an incredible place with a lot to offer. One of things I found so touching is just how many people either from here or who have chosen to relocate here have so much pride and passion for where this city is and where it's going. Yeah, it's rough around the edges, but that's part of the charm. That Norteña in CDMX all those months ago was right: it's not just what you hear in the news and it has so much more to offer. The Simpsons, in a rather tongue-in-cheek way, called Tijuana the happiest place on Earth. If you take Tijuana for what it is and all that it is, you just might find some truth in that.

2019.08.12 07:10 innnnmotion Reflections on Tijuana, Baja California, México

I must admit that before arriving to Tijuana, I knew very little of the city. In part, this was intentional. I liked to travel to places with an almost blank slate, allowing whatever experiences happen to wash over me, building from nothing with as little preconceived notions of where the hell I might be as possible. When it came to Tijuana, I knew oh so very little. I knew it was a border town and I knew there was some sort of a wall. I also briefly lived in Mexico City and dated someone there who was from TJ—as I've found so many like to call it. When she told me this was her home, it was quickly followed by an almost literal bold-face asterisk: "It's not just what you hear in the news and it has so much more to offer." I admittedly hadn't heard the news, but I assumed this news was not the good kind of news. And it's true, the news is, well… often not good. USA Today recently named it the most dangerous city in the world and, just one weekend before my arrival, 31 people were killed within city limits. But whatever. I wasn't going to let the news stop me. Hell, I hadn't even read the news until well after into my arrival to even allow myself to be affected by it. All I knew was that I had just finished a stint exploring up the East Coast of the U.S. and down the West Coast, and it was very important for me to take a bus to the border and walk into Mexico. And that's just what I did.
 
HOW TO PRONOUNCE TIJUANA
Really quick just to get this out of the way, because I keep hearing my fellow gringos fucking this up too much to let it slide. If you're saying "tee-a-wa–na," you've been throwing in an extra syllable. Make it easier on yourself and say "tee-hooa-na." Or if that's too much, just say "TJ."
 
CROSSING THE BORDER
The walk into Mexico was… surprisingly uneventful. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but what I found were personality-devoid border security agents who simply asked how long I was going to be in Mexico ("I'd like the six month visa please"), would I be paying the fee in pesos or dollars (500 pesos), and not to lose the paper (like I did once before). "Great, enjoy. Bienvenidos." I walked onward and the sign above shortly after confirmed his greeting. I was on my way with Mexico to my left, leaving behind the USofA for the unforeseeable future.
 
LAS PLAYAS DE TIJUANA
I still had my Telcel sim card leftover from my CDMX days (which, for the record, works great in the states on the T-Mobile network at a fraction of the cost). While there are cheaper options, if you're looking to cover a lot of Mexican ground, I'd recommend this company as they reportedly have the best coverage. You can also use their app to manage your data usage and load top-ups. 5GB/month will set you back a mere ~13USD. Because of this, I was able to book an Uber directly from the border to Lifestyle Hostel, one of two that exists in Tijuana. It's strange to me that the city doesn't have more of a hostel culture considering it's entirely primed for it with its endless supply of nightlife partying, but I guess that's just not the reputation it has right now. Perhaps one day.
This particular hostel is one block off the beach and boardwalk in an area simply known as Playas de Tijuana. Lifestyle boasts high reviews and at $14 a night for a dorm bed (that's low-end here) with little competition and I can see why. It's a competently ran place situated above, get this, a jiu jitsu studio. The man who did my check-in offered complimentary classes (I think), to which I did not take him up on, but I appreciated nonetheless. Instead, I wanted to take a stroll of the area and my surroundings. I came to Tijuana for whatever it had to offer after all. I was there on a Wednesday night just before sundown strolling along the boardwalk heading towards la frontera, the infamous physical barrier between here and there. Mariachi men were playing the standards, everything from hot dogs to half-dozen shrimp on a stick could be purchased, and families were soaking in the last of the waves and rays. I found a place to sit for a while, just to revel in the sights, sounds, and smells as I felt absolutely giddy at the fact that I was back in Latinolandia once again. Once I finished basking in this delight, I headed towards the wall. You'll first see it off in the distance, a strange and not at all solid structure that flimsy just shoots off and comes to an abrupt stop in the ocean, almost as if the damn thing is afraid of water. It doesn't look at all effective or menacing, it's not even a wall as much as it's a series of inter-connecting slats. A fence, one might say. Maybe that's why they shout to build a wall. What I found incredibly interesting is how the two countries treat this structure. On the American side, it doesn't appear you can get anywhere within 30 meters of thing. Hell, there's actually another wall behind this wall and a road in between with very official looking vehicles occasionally on patrol. But over here? Over here it carries the sort of character you'd expect from Mexicans. Every section for a good couple of kilometers is covered in mural after mural, some illustrating the divide of nations with another reminding us that everyone is an immigrant. Some are deeply political and some are hopeful and speaks to the unity of humanity. Some just want to express their love for the person their dating. This structure that was meant to say, "get out and stay out," has been transformed into a place of unrestrained expression. Across the street sits a café named Felices días del amor y la soledad (Happy days of love and loneliness).
 
ZONA NORTE
While I enjoyed the evening at the beach, I am and will always be a city kid at heart, so the next morning I packed up my stuff, ate a street tamale, and took an Uber towards "the city." For reference, here's a map of the areas that most tourists will find themselves.
In the north right along the border you have the most infamous part of town: Zona Norte. While small, it's complete with the seediest sides of life. Sex workers on the streets, noticeable drug use and signs of addiction, and high-end sex clubs. This area is not for the faint of heart. I saw someone getting a blowjob in a parking lot, a lady with makeup running down her face while shooting up in the middle of the day, unofficial "police" chatting up the street-level sex workers, and… some great taco stands. Sex work is decriminalized in Mexico, meaning that in most areas, you don't need license to work in this industry and you won't find yourself in legal trouble for trying to solicit or procure it. In many respects, this is a wonderful thing. Those selling and buying can conduct business that will happen regardless without fearing for their legal well-being. I only wish that the area was safer for everyone involved. It's said that police have completely abandoned Zona Norte, leaving much of it up to self-governance. Enough gets said and written about here, particularly among horny U.S. tourists visiting the renowned Hong Kong Gentlemen's Club. I on the other hand did not partake in any of the trade. It's not out of some moral opposition, but generally… it's just not my thing.
I do want to talk about the bar Zacazonapan, or simply Zacaz as those here call it. Said to have been put on the map to the external non-TJ crowd by Manu Chao, Zacaz lies just on the border of—but still very much in—Zona Norte. To explain Zacaz, you have to understand marijuana in Tijuana. While literally just over the border in San Diego you can buy weed from dispensaries with a credit card, the attitude in Tijuana and much of Mexico is less than accepting. Much of the drug world, including yerba, is Narco controlled. For that reason alone, until this relationship becomes decoupled, the plant will always have a troubled reputation. Zacaz, on the other hand, is a green lover's haven. For whatever reason, much like all of Zona Norte, the police look away. You need to be over 18 and show an ID to get in, regardless of your age, but I assume this is more of a self-imposed restriction rather than any actual legal obligation. The bar resides below ground in a very dim and incredibly dive environment. They sell a vast selection of not one but two beers available only by the bottle and only by the liter. The first time I walked in, I saw nothing but a cloud of thick weed smoke, 4 person tables lining the outer perimeter, and a bong resting right there and center on the bar. Now I've been to my fair share of dives in my life, but I must say, this is a truly special place. You never know what you'll get. The way the seating works, you're almost always interacting with people you don't know. The patrons are rolling joints out on the tables, sipping their beers out of plastic cups, and dancing in the center of the bar on very sticky floors. You get all types, ages, and backgrounds here. The music will jump around like crazy from 80s synth pop, metal, to Latin ballads. People will dance sporadically, get into lengthy conversations, argue, and break out into fist-throwing fights. On one particular night, I witness a chubby man in his 50s dancing to Juan Gabriel while an older sex worker was being pushed out with a bar stool by the staff for trying to steal some drugs off another patron. Words will never fully capture the complete essence of what Zacaz has to offer. Much like the multifacetedness of humanity, Zacaz demands to be witnessed and accepted for everything it is.
 
EL CENTRO AND AV. REVOLUCIÓN
Literally across the street from Zona Norte is the main downtown and tourist strip named Avenida Revolución. Marking the start is Arco Monumental, acting as a gateway to what the city has to offer. On Revolución, you'll find an incredible array of dive bars dating back sometimes more than half a century. You'll find an ever-exploding craft beer scene, offering some of the finest in the field. On the food side, you can go high-end or eat just as deliciously on the streets. You can also get your fill of independent cinema. Here's a list of my standouts:
I could keep going. I really could. This street has so much to offer, all hours of the day, all days of the week. Honestly you can't go wrong just showing up and sometimes following the sounds to where ever they may lead. Music pours onto every nook.
I have a few other mentions of places that might fall in el centro territory or not as city and neighborhood boundaries always get a little fuzzy, but I can't go without at least mentioning them and the quality experiences they provided.
 
CECUT AND ZONA RIO
A little to the east of the party scene that is Av. Revolución, you'll find the Tijuana Cultural Center (CECUT). Encompassed within this orb of a standout architectural sight is a cultural hub for all. It has the only IMAX theater in town showing an array of films in a 360-degree field. Museo de las Californias can be found within, boasting both a permanent collection as well as rotating exhibits. When I was there, stills from the film Roma were on display. There's a tranquil garden, Jardin Caracol, that contains Mesoamerican sculptures, an array of unique plants from around the region, and a quiet escape from the city that surrounds it. CECUT also offers a nice outdoor area that provides an assortment of weekend activities, like a vegan food festival or an indigenous peoples' dance festival.
Cross the street and you'll find yourself in the popular Plaza Rio, an outdoor shopping mall that'll have all your chains, retail shops, and a large Cinepolis movie theater with the latest blockbusters shown in both Spanish and English.
 
ALBERCAS WATER PARK VERGEL
If you're here during the warmer months, do yourself a favor and make it out to this robust water park of high-intensity water slide attractions. Unlike the States, you won't find any price gouging here. Entrance tickets are 180MXN (~9USD) and the food and alcohol prices inside are the same you would pay outside. The music was all over the place and for a while was playing some real 80s bangers that just made the whole experience a treat. It's most known for the Slip N Fly, a slide that requires your to go down head first and launches your body 20 meters into the air before plummeting into the water however you find yourself landing. I did it only once and still felt bruised on my left thigh four days later. It's no joke and it's awesome. But come for the day, drink clamatos, hang out in the wave pool, and make some Mexican friends. I went on a Tuesday and stayed for the whole day. While the park was busy, I never had to wait more than a couple of minutes in line. They seem to have a nice system. You can also bring outside food and utilize one of their many BBQ grills.
 
HOW TO MEET PEOPLE AND FIND EVENTS
As a white guy with blue eyes and somewhat passible Spanish, I found it both easy and accessible to meet people and find events. As with most places in the world though, I recommend using the tools out there.
TJ has a decent Couchsurfing community. Even if you don't use it for lodging, if you travel and want to meet people, the Hangouts feature on the app is an invaluable resource for getting connected with the people who live there and are in the know. Within an hour of turning the app on and broadcasting to others that I wanted to hangout, I had a few people offering to show me around.

2018.09.06 09:39 Gamemaster1379 Concurso local para protección animal

Hola a todos amigos, mi amigo Martin Candelaria de Mixquiahuala Hidalgo, mexico ha llevado a acabo un proyecto para fomentaría la cultura de la adopción responsable y del cuidado y protección animal. Les agradecería mucho si nos colaboran con un like directamente en el siguiente enlace.
Muchas muchas gracias ☺️!!

Un mensaje de mi prometida en Ingles
Hey everyone! My fiancee was telling me about a campaign going on in her hometown in Mixquiahuala I'm very much an American born and raised, but had the chance to visit this town last year. It was a wonderful experience to get to know her hometown and meet everyone there. But I did notice that there was a stray dog problem that was pretty bad. She tells me there are a lot of stray cats, too, but they tend to be killed off by the dogs or sometimes by less friendly locals (since cats tend to trespass a bit more than dogs).
She tells me she has a friend seeking funding from the local government through a contest. The contest is to get the most likes for a photo on their town's social media. She would really appreciate it if you all could pitch in and spread the news about the contest.
The link to it can be found here

** SHIRLEY: **
That was a bad decision.
** DUNCAN: **
I started.
** TROY: **
Saying she turns you on is the harrassment, buddy.
** DUNCAN: **
this semester.

** PIERCE: **

I’d like to get back to exactly the way it was before they got here.

Professor, please, I do have rules.

Then why have a study group?

I’ve been part of you dies just a little elbow room, and a lot of study groups that fell apart because of unaddressed tension.

** PIERCE: **
Wipes, the award winning moist towelette.
** SHIRLEY: **
Well, Annie, sweetie, I guess itdidn’t occur to anyone - Pumpkin, it’s not behind your back,we just didn’t think about you.

2017.11.23 05:26 SubotaiKhan Te ELIFEO: Conceptos políticos y formas de gobierno.

Parte I: La diferencia entre izquierda y derecha
Parte II: La izquierda
Primero, terminé mis parciales, aprobé todo, casi soy abogado, así que me van a tener haciendo lo que más me gusta: Enseñar pelotudeces. Estoy considerando seriamente estudiar alguna licenciatura de política, historia o filosofía y dar clases como una segunda profesión.
Segundo, voy a hacer un anexo de palabras que debí haber explicado antes, cuestiones ideológicas que pueden estar tanto en la derecha como en la izquierda, y algunas son “buzzwords”, palabras que la gente, tanto boludos en internet como académicos, la utilizan de manera trivial.
Tercero. Voy a explicar las formas de gobierno, que no lleva encausado necesariamente una ideología en sí, lo voy a hacer corto porque asumo que no hace falta extenderme mucho en explicar que es, por ejemplo, una monarquía y una república. Pensaba que algo como esto no es necesario explicar, pero he visto en Facebook, estadounidenses que piensan que democracia y republica constitucional son dos términos opuestos y excluyentes.
https://www.reddit.com/ShitAmericansSay/comments/5ubaz8/a_lot_of_americans_think_that_a_democracy_and/
https://www.reddit.com/The_Donald/comments/6ixydx/monarchy_doesnt_work_theocracy_doesnt_work/
Originalmente, iba a incluir en este thread las ideologías de derecha, pero quedaría muy feo mezcladas con todo esto, así que quedara para más adelante.
No hay TL; DR. Lo mismo que el anterior post. Si van a criticar, se toman la molestia de leer todo. Y algo que algunos no entendieron con el anterior thread: “Si te cuento que es X ideología, y que piensan sus integrantes, no quiere decir que yo la apoyo”
POPULISMO:
MAN, acá si tenemos problemas para definir esto. Cualquier político que empieza a tener su propia hinchada, es llamado populista. He visto a analistas políticos llamar populista a políticos moderados o pro establishment, como Obama, Macri, Hillary.
El termino populista se lo usa como insulto, aquel político que atrae a las masas ignorantes, pero también es usado como algo positivo, a aquel político que es popular entre la gente y electo por favorecer a la gente. Pero estas definiciones son ridículas, ¿no? ¿Cómo un político va a ser electo si no es atrayendo la mayor cantidad de votantes posibles? Ningún político va a decir “yo solo represento a la elite, los pobres que se caguen”.
Me puse a buscar en varias fuentes que se lo define como populismo, me encontré con bocha de artículos periodísticos, definiciones de diccionario, y demás, pero ninguna me dio una mejor caracterización más especifica que Santiago Ylarri hace sobre el populismo latinoamericano:
• Rechazo a los profesionales de la política: Se rechaza tanto a los académicos, como los analistas y los políticos con experiencia.
• Desconfianza en las instituciones públicas existentes: Es decir, anti establishment, oposición a la retórica que gobierna el país (si es que no gobiernan los populistas) y a la retórica internacional.
• Diálogo directo entre la dirección del movimiento y la base social.
• Fuerte voluntad de movilización y participación.
• Retórica nacionalista: El enemigo es el extranjero u otros países que planean la destrucción del Estado, junto con la colaboración de traidores de nuestro país.
• Liderazgo caudillista: Un líder carismático, invistiendo más poderes de los que le corresponden constitucionalmente, siendo apoyado por sectores populares.
También se suele usar como sinónimo de demagogia, la estrategia política de ganar votos por medio de promesas falsas, apelando a la gente con emociones y desinformación, y un uso y abuso de la propaganda política.
El populismo, como el nacionalismo, puede ser de derecha o izquierda, surgen figuras que usan distintas narrativas en su camino al poder. El referente de la derecha en nuestro continente es Donald Trump, mientras que la izquierda tiene en toda Latinoamérica sus raíces en la llamada ola rosada. Un surguimiento de movimientos democráticos socialistas en todo el continente, con una retórica anti EEUU y anti capitalismo.
NACIONALISMO:
Nacionalismo clásico (este término no existe, pero me parece útil para diferenciar el nacionalismo original del moderno) sea intencional o no, en algún momento, a fines del siglo 18, se hizo necesario tener garantizada la lealtad de los súbditos mediante “algo”. Desde nobles hasta revolucionarios, se dieron cuenta que era fácil garantizar la lealtad por medio de atributos que identificaran a una población con las causas de uno, también es un buen concepto para tener en cuenta si uno desea gobernar sobre una población: entre más homogénea, más fácil de hacer leyes considerando sus necesidades. Finalmente, con la introducción de una nueva clase gobernante o al menos influyente, los burgueses, existiría una reestructuración social y renovación de todas las instituciones (Algunos reyes empezaron a legislar y reglamentar el idioma, y a usar la religión no solo como entidad política, sino como entidad cultural unificadora)
El mejor ejemplo que tengo para explicarles fue el de Francia. Un monarca era sostenido en el poder porque era la voluntad de Dios. ¿Qué pasa cuando la voluntad de Dios que te gobierna, conspira con otros reyes para que invadan tu país y repriman tu revolución? Bueno, primero, obviamente, le cortamos la cabeza con una guillotina como gente civilizada que somos, segundo, instauramos una nueva razón por la cual debemos mantenernos unidos en defensa de la soberanía de nuestra nación de este Rey traidor de su pueblo y sus aliados. Se creó una bandera reemplazando el estandarte de la monarquía gobernante, un símbolo azul, blanco y rojo, representando así a todo el pueblo francés y su lema; libertad, igualdad y fraternidad. Esto no solo se vio reflejado en solo un trapito, sino que, si alguien se metía con Francia, no se metía con la Casa Real del Reino de Francia, pero con todos los habitantes del territorio francés, las guerras no la pelearían los caballeros de noble cuna, lo harían desde el más miserable de los campesinos hasta el más rico de los nobles. Napoleón famosamente presumiría de esto: “No pueden detenerme, gasto 30.000 vidas en un mes.”
Esto, junto con los movimientos filosóficos románticos, generara en todo el mundo las Naciones-Estado: Territorios delimitados, donde una población que comparte una identidad cultural, es gobernada por un mismo soberano.
Nacionalismo étnico: Algo que es necesario diferenciar, es que un Estado no es lo mismo que una nación. Dentro de un Estado podés tener distintos grupos étnicos que se sienten identificados solo entre ellos, y no con el resto del país. Por ejemplo: las diversas naciones que se encuentran en España (vascos, catalanes, gallegos, aragonés) o en nuestro país que tenemos la nación mapuche.
Los bolivianos decidieron tomar en consideración sus diferentes nacionalidades y constituirse como un Estado Plurinacional (un estado descentralizado y culturalmente heterogéneo, que concede cierto tipo de autonomía y representación a cada nación)
Otros, como yo diría el nuestro, alienta la homogeneización de las etnias por medio de la aculturación, el mestizaje, y básicamente ignorando las diferencias. Esto se le llama Crisol de razas o de etnias. Esto lleva a configurar un tipo distinto de nacionalismo, donde la nación lo compone todos los que la habitan, sean de la etnia que sean
Nota: crisol es el recipiente donde se funden y mezclan los metales.
Lo contrario al crisol de etnias, es el mosaico, esto sucede cuando no se produce la homogeneización, viviendo en armonía, pero sin mezclarse.
Hasta acá di ejemplos de cómo en países modernos pueden convivir diferentes etnias en relativa paz social. Sin embargo, en el siglo pasado y este, distintos Estados han tenido sus etnias enfrentadas unas contra otras, bajo el argumento de ser oprimidas por otra etnia dentro de un mismo Estado, y no hablo solo de catalanes buscando independizarse por un referéndum, sino de verdaderas crisis y genocidios.
Alemania: Hitler llego al poder usando de argumento la opresión que el verdadero pueblo alemán sufría, y esto llevo a que… bueno, no hace falta que les cuente que fue La Solución Final, ¿no? Posteriormente anexó partes de Checoslovaquia para proteger a las minorías germánicas habitando en ese país. Esta búsqueda de consolidación del pueblo germánico, que superaba las fronteras del Estado Alemán, se lo llama pangermanismo. El lema usado por Hitler era “Una Nación, un Pueblo, un Líder”, es decir, el Estado Alemán, sería sinónimo de la nación alemana, y todos gobernados por el mismo e indiscutido líder.
Ruanda: Cuando los belgas colonizaron Ruanda, se encontraron con tres tribus. Pero las que nos importan acá eran los tutsis y los hutus (la tercera tribu eran los twa). Mucho no difieren entre estas tres etnias, los tres hablan la misma lengua, y producto de la colonización, la misma religión (catolicismo). Según algunos académicos, los tutsis y los hutus no son ni siquiera distintos pueblos, sino una especie de castas, pero los belgas les llevaron la noción de que los tutsis eran superiores, y ellos debían estar a cargo, a pesar de que eran una minoría… cuando los belgas se fueron y su gobierno paso a ser democrático, la mayoría hutu decidió que, en represalia, se debía matar a todos los tutsis. El gobierno ordeno que cada hutu debía salir con palos cubiertos de clavos, a matar a todos los tutsis vecinos que tuvieras, y de no hacerlo, te matarían a vos a tu familia. Esto llevo al gran genocidio ruandés.
Yugoslavia: Este es un caso realmente interesante, porque fue un quilombo de “subnacionalidades”.
Por si no se acuerdan de la existencia de este país, o nacieron después de su caída, antes existía un Estado Federal Socialista en la península balcánica llamado Yugoslavia. ¿Porque dije subnacionalidades? Porque las distintas naciones de Yugoslavia eran todos eslavos. No que son de solo de Eslovenia, sino que pertenecen al grupo étnico al cual pertenecen muchos otros países, como Rusia, Ucrania, Polonia, República Checa, Bielorrusia, Bulgaria, Eslovaquia, y las distintas naciones de Yugoslavia. Y en Yugoslavia, tenías las repúblicas socialistas de Bosnia y Herzegovina, Croacia, Eslovenia, Macedonia, Montenegro y Serbia, algunos de ellos tenían distinto idioma y distinta religión (católicos apostólicos romanos, católicos ortodoxos y musulmanes). Se mantenían unidos gracias a un poderoso líder llamado Josip Broz, alias “Tito”, que, si bien era socialista, no se llevaba bien con el Kremlin (era tan macho, que amenazo a Stalin de que, si le seguían tratando de mandar asesinos, el mismo iba a mandar uno, y solo le bastaría con ese para hacerlo)
No se sabe si es verdad, pero se le atribuye a Tito la frase: “Soy el líder de un país que tiene dos alfabetos, tres lenguas, cuatro religiones, cinco nacionalidades, seis repúblicas, rodeada de siete vecinos y un país donde viven 8 minorías étnicas.”
Como esperaran, o se acordaran, una vez que Tito murió, todo se desintegro, y fueron luchas entre distintas naciones para preservar su identidad nacional en contra de los serbios que querían mantener la colapsada Yugoslavia, hubo crímenes de guerra, genocidio, todo.
¿Se acuerdan que en el 2006, Argentina jugo contra Serbia y Montenegro? “La selección de Serbia y Montenegro es, hasta el momento, el único equipo que ha participado en la fase final de la Copa Mundial de Fútbol representando a un país inexistente. Tras la independencia de Montenegro el 3 de junio, Serbia declaró la disolución oficial de la unión de Serbia y Montenegro el 5 de junio de 2006, cuatro días antes del inicio del torneo. Por disposiciones de la FIFA, sin embargo, el equipo debió mantener su denominación.”
Ahora mismo hacen lo que sea para mantener a Kosovo dentro de su poder soberano, a pesar de que EEUU y la Unión Europea reconocen a Kosovo como nación independiente.
Medio Oriente: Cuando el Imperio otomano colapso en la primera guerra mundial, Gran Bretaña y Francia dividieron el imperio en protectorados temporales, prometiendo la formación de distintos Estados. La delimitación de fronteras fue… arbitraria, hecha con regla sobre un mapa. ¿Qué paso cuando se formaron los Estados? Sunníes vs. chiitas, kurdos vs. Turcos, iraníes, iraquíes y sirios, palestinos vs. israelitas, monarquías vs. Teocracias. Un dolor de pija para todos, que daría para otro thread solo para explicar toda esta situación.
Actualmente: Tenemos varios movimientos nacionalistas, la mayoría propone la secesión de su nación del Estado: Los kurdos, catalanes, mapuches, escoceses y vénetos son los movimientos más trascendentes de estos años.
No pretendo ponerme a criticar las ideologías que explico, pero me gusta mucho esta crítica hecha por Karl Popper:
"Pues el supremo absurdo del principio de la autodeterminación nacional es evidente para todo el que dedique un momento a reflexionar en él. Ese principio equivale a sostener que cada Estado debe ser una nación-Estado: que debe estar limitado dentro de una frontera natural, y que esta frontera debe coincidir con la ubicación de un grupo étnico; de modo que debe ser el grupo étnico, la "nación", el que determine y proteja los límites naturales del Estado. Pero las naciones-Estados de esta especie no existen. Aun Islandia, la única excepción en la que puedo pensar, sólo es una excepción aparente. Pues sus límites están determinados, no por su grupo étnico, sino por el Atlántico Norte, así como están protegidos, no por la nación islandesa, sino por el Tratado del Atlántico Norte. Las naciones-Estados no existen, simplemente porque no existen las llamadas "naciones" o "pueblos" en los que sueñan los nacionalistas. No hay ningún, o casi ningún, grupo étnico homogéneo asentado desde hace largo tiempo en países con fronteras naturales. Los grupos étnicos y lingüísticos (los dialectos a menudo son barreras lingüísticas) están entremezclados inextricablemente en todas partes. La Checoslovaquia de Masaryk se fundó en el principio de la autodeterminación nacional. Pero tan pronto como fue fundada, los eslovacos exigieron, en nombre de ese principio, la liberación de la dominación checa; y finalmente fue destruida por su minoría alemana, en nombre del mismo principio. Situaciones similares han surgido prácticamente en todos los casos en los que se ha usado el principio de autodeterminación para fijar los límites de un nuevo Estado: en Irlanda, en la India, en Israel, en Yugoslavia, etc. Hay minorías étnicas en todas partes. "Liberarlas" a todas ellas no puede constituir un objetivo adecuado; más bien, el propósito debe ser protegerlas a todas. La opresión de los grupos nacionales es un gran mal; pero la autodeterminación nacional no es un remedio factible. Además, Gran Bretaña, los Estados Unidos, Canadá y Suiza son cuatro ejemplos obvios de Estados que violan, en muchos aspectos, el principio de las nacionalidades. En lugar de determinar sus límites por grupos étnicos, cada uno de esos países se las ha arreglado para unir varios grupos étnicos."
Karl Popper, 'La Historia de nuestro Tiempo', en 'Conjeturas y refutaciones'.
Nacionalismo económico: Finalmente, tenemos el nacionalismo económico, que consiste en políticas de Estado de proteccionismo a favor de empresas originarias de un Estado. Por medio de subsidios a las empresas y aranceles impositivos contra importaciones, un Estado promueve una agenda nacionalista que pone énfasis en la industria nacional.
Esto es en contraposición al globalismo económico, la tendencia que tiene el capitalismo moderno de favorecer a cualquier empresa del mundo que pueda proporcionar costos más baratos y/o de mejor calidad. Como por ejemplo la manufactura barata China y del sudeste asiático (no cuesta mucho hacer un par de jeans cuando le pagas solo dos pesos a un menor de edad en un país con pocas libertades sociales) o la tecnología alemana o coreana.
El nacionalismo hoy en día puede abogar por ambas cosas, por la protección y unidad de una nación, y por el proteccionismo económico, o solo una de ellas. Donald Trump, Nigel Farage, Marine le Pen, Frauke Petry, Peron, los Kirchner, Hitler, Mussolini, Tito, Carles Puigdemont, Bernie Sanders de izquierda a derecha, liberales y autoritarios, podemos encontrar distintos nacionalismos, en distintos grados, con sus propias particularidades. Usualmente se oponen a los Tratados de libre comercio entre las naciones, y son cautelosos con los bloques económicos (Euroescepticismo en la Unión Europea).
¿Qué diferencia hay entre nacionalismo y patriotismo?
Patriotismo no es una ideología, es simplemente la filosofía de apego e identificación de una persona con la tierra de donde uno viene. Uno puede ser patriota y creer en cualquier ideología política o teoría económica, no se da lo mismo con el nacionalismo. Ejemplo: Puedo ser patriota y oponerme al proteccionismo económico y promover la inmigración a nuestro país.
TOTALITARISMO y AUTOCRACIA:
Totalitarismo no es necesariamente un sinónimo de fascismo o autoritarismo. Totalitarismo implica que existe un partido, un grupo de personas o alguien, que tiene en su figura todos los poderes (ejecutivo, legislativo y judicial) y lo utiliza para controlar todos los aspectos dentro de una sociedad acorde a su ideología.
Una monarquía absoluta o una dictadura son ejemplos de una autocracia, teniendo también el monopolio del poder político, pero no necesariamente es un gobierno totalitario, siempre y cuando no tengan una policía secreta o por medio de la legislación, limiten las libertades civiles de la población.
Según Carl Friedrich y Brzezinski (tuve que buscar el nombre de este último) dicen que un sistema totalitario tiene las siguientes características
-Monopolio de las armas y los medios de comunicación.
-Dirección central y control de la economía
-Terrorismo de Estado
-Una ideología elaborada
-Un solo partido, liderado por un dictador o caudillo.
Con esto, absolutamente todos los grandes autócratas de la historia entran en esta definición: Mao, Mussolini, Stalin, Hitler… Podríamos discutir incluso varias figuras nacionales, como la Dictadura Militar o Juan Manuel de Rosas, pero eso se lo dejo a ustedes, have fun.
INTERNACIONALISMO
Básicamente la idea es intervenir, de manera directa o indirecta en otros países, a fin de cambiar la ideología del país intervenido. Es una idea nacida del socialismo, que como explique, busca llevar la revolución a todas las partes del mundo; pero también presente en ideologías de centro y de derecha, como es el excepcionalísimo americano (la idea de que Estados Unidos es la policía del mundo, y que está facultada para invadir e intervenir en otros países para llevar FREEEDOOOM). Otros ejemplos no tan invasivos pueden ser las organizaciones internacionales, como la Organización de los Estados Americanos siendo la misma creada para evitar la expansión del comunismo en América. Por otra parte, la Unión Europea y el Mercosur suelen poner sanciones y excluir de sus acuerdos a aquellos países que no respeten los principios del liberalismo o la democracia occidental.
IMPERIALISMO
Otro concepto que tiene mas de un significado. El original es lo que supongo todos sabran, una nación expandiéndose haciendo uso de sus fuerzas militares para hacerlo. Aca va todo Imperio que estudiamos en la escuela.
La justificación para la creación de un Imperio puede ser meramente la obtención de nuevas tierras y recursos porque si. Esto no se da mas hoy en dia porque queda mal tomar cosas de otro sin pedir permiso. Por eso poco a poco, los países que tenían colonias tan lejos de sus territorios, fueron perdiendo su poder sobre ellas, poniendo fin al colonialismo.
Así que los Estados tuvieron que buscar otras excusas para expandir sus territorios. Una de ellas es el irredentismo, la idea de que se debe anexar X territorio por cuestiones históricas, culturales o raciales.
Existe por ejemplo el irredentismo argentino con la Antartida, las Islas Malvinas, Georgia y Sándwich del Sur. Tambien de los territorios cedidos a Chile (Picton, Nueva, Lennox) Descubri investigando esto que el irredentismo argentino se extiende hasta toda la Patagonia chilena, y los territorios que una vez fueron parte del Virreinato del Rio de la Plata, como Paraguay, Uruguay y parte de Bolivia y Brasil. Se imaginan eso? Capaz seria al pedo, ya somos el 8 país más grande del mundo y seguimos sin saber explotar nuestros recursos y estamos enormemente despoblados.
Con el ejemplo anterior, se darán cuenta que no se necesita un emperador para ser imperialista. Y ahí vamos con el concepto más moderno, el imperialismo económico. Y acá entra todo lo que algún amigo zurdo les habrá dicho alguna vez, un país interviniendo por medios económicos, en la política de otro.
Tambien existe lo llamado Imperialismo cultural. Es decir, cuando un pais replica su cultura en otras partes del mundo a tal punto de reemplazar la cultura del pais huésped. Aunque Estados Unidos sea el mejor ejemplo de ello, se han dado cuenta que de todas maneras EEUU es el pais mas “raro” en muchos sentidos? Usan otro sistema para contar la fecha, la temperatura, las medidas, capacidades, hasta para nombrar al deporte mas popular del mundo son unas parias.
GLOBALISMO
Aunque en su mayoría los que abogan por esta ideología es la centro derecha o la derecha liberal, me parece necesario explicarla ya que la mencione cuando explique nacionalismo. Básicamente, libre comercio entre las naciones; fundamentado en la eficacia y baratos costos. Esto es apoyado también por bloques económicos, que buscan eliminar las fronteras entre las naciones, tanto impositivas, como legislativas, sociales y culturales. Esta ideología suele estar ligado con el multiculturalismo, la idea de la convivencia pacífica entre distintas culturas.
Una ideología que se desprende del globalismo, es el COSMOPOLISMO, la idea de que todos los seres humanos de la tierra formamos parte de una comunidad, y en lo ideal, deberíamos abogar por un gobierno democrático mundial, con una moral universal para todos los habitantes de la tierra. Una idea como esta ha sido sostenida por Albert Einstein, Albert Camus y Bertrand Russell.
Fun fact: Albert Einstein apoyaba la idea de un gobierno socialista federal mundial
La idea de la moral universal es algo que está basado en las muchas ideas de la construcción de la moral. Podría hablarles si les interesa de la filosofía de la ética en otro post.
FORMAS DE GOBIERNO:
Unitarios, Federales y Confederados: No requiere mucha explicación para nosotros los argentinos, ¿no?
Unitarismos: Existe un gobierno central absoluto que gobierna de manera directa sobre todo un territorio. Este sistema funciona en países chicos o con poca población. Básicamente, si una provincia nuestra se separara y formara su propio país, lo más probable es que adopte un sistema unitario para gobernarse ya que no tiene tanto que gobernar. Estoy hablando de vos, Banda Oriental
Federalismo: Existen distintas regiones con su gobierno autónomo, pudiendo tener sus propias leyes, poderes ejecutivos, legislativos y judiciales, y hasta su propia constitución, pero siempre con un gobierno superior que gobierna por encima de los mismos, imponiendo leyes, una constitución y hasta interviniendo en los integrantes de esta unión cuando sea conveniente.
Por alguna que otra razón, esas regiones tienen distintos nombres a pesar de que sean básicamente lo mismo: provincias (Argentina) estados (EEUU) estados federados (Alemania) emiratos (Emiratos Árabes Unidos) zonas (Nepal) cantones (Suiza) y más.
Es un lio de nombres, y en un mismo país puede encontrarse diferentes regiones con diferentes grados de autonomía. Rusia, por ejemplo, tiene 46 óblasts, 3 ciudades federales, 22 republicas, 9 kais, 1 óblast autónomo y 4 distritos federales. Fucking commies.
El federalismo supone en un principio la descentralización, y para ello el Gobierno Federal subroga facultades a sus miembros, pero a su vez, permite que los miembros tengan cierta manera de controlar al gobierno federal por medio de cámaras legislativas, compuesta por representantes de las entidades federales. En nuestro caso, la cámara de senadores representa a las provincias, mientras que la cámara de diputados representa a los argentinos.
Confederación: Esta idea supone que no existe un gobierno Federal, solo una representación de los miembros de la federación ante los otros países.
Argentina llego a serlo en un momento, cuando cada provincia tenía su propio gobierno, su propio ejército, su propia moneda y su propia constitución, además, desobedeciendo completamente al gobierno de Buenos Aires.
La Confederación Helvética (Suiza) no es una confederación tampoco hoy en día, porque sigue teniendo un gobierno federal.
Lo más cercano que tenemos hoy en día a una confederación, es la Unión Europea, aunque es discutible.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lj127TKu4Q
REPÚBLICA Y MONARQUÍA:
Primero aclaro que existe una diferencia entre Jefe de Estado y Jefe de Gobierno. El Jefe de Estado es quien representa al país ante naciones extranjeras y es responsable del país. El Jefe de Gobierno lidera el poder ejecutivo y la administración del Estado. Les parecerá que es la misma cosa, siendo que, en nuestro país, y en todas las repúblicas presidencialistas, el presidente es las dos cosas al mismo tiempo.
República: su concepto moderno de hoy en día, es aquel gobierno que es una cuestión del pueblo, y, por lo tanto, elegido de manera usualmente de manera democrática, ya sea indirecta (el pueblo gobierna a través de sus representantes) o directa (el pueblo gobierna sin ellos). Puede que una república sea unipartidista, como es el caso de China, donde el partido elige a los candidatos.
República suele ser usada para describir más conceptos, como la igualdad ante la ley y la división de poderes, que en las monarquías no solía suceder.
Una república puede ser parlamentaria, presidencialista o semipresidencialista.
Un sistema presidencialista es el que tenemos. La gente elige a un presidente, que como dije, es el jefe de Estado y Gobierno.
En un sistema semipresidencialista, el jefe de Gobierno (primer ministro) es electo por el parlamento, mientras que el jefe de Estado (presidente) es electo por el pueblo. Existe entonces un gobierno bicéfalo, donde ambos comparten autoridad. Aunque suele suceder en la realidad que una figura subroga su poder a la otra. Gobiernos semipresidencialistas son los de Francia y Rusia por ejemplo.
El sistema parlamentarista tiene un primer ministro, una figura que es electa por el parlamento. El parlamento es un cuerpo legislativo que elige al primer ministro
Monarquía: El jefe de Estado gobierna de manera vitalicia, de manera unipersonal y es designado por un proceso no democrático. Existen distintos tipos de monarquías, no todas son iguales.
Una absoluta es aquella donde el monarca tiene en su persona investida los tres poderes, como es el caso de Arabia Saudita.
En una monarquía constitucional, el monarca solo tiene sus límites configurados por una carta magna o constitución. El monarca puede o no tener investida la figura del poder ejecutivo. En Marruecos el monarca es el jefe del poder ejecutivo, mientras que en casi todas las monarquías europeas no pasa esto, sino que hay una monarquía parlamentaria, donde el primer ministro es el Jefe de Gobierno, y el monarca es el Jefe de Estado.
No necesariamente un monarca es constituido por herencia, sino que, en algunos casos, es electo. El mismo se da en la Ciudad del Vaticano, donde el Papa es un monarca absoluto elegido por un cónclave.
ANEXO: Términos de origen griego adicionales que no requieren mucha mayor explicación.
Adhocracia: Ausencia de jerarquías. Como oposición también a una burocracia.
Androcracia: Gobiernan hombres. Patriarquia implica que existe un poder jerárquico superior de hombres hacia mujeres.
Anocracia: Gobierno inestable e ineficaz. Un mix entre una democracia y una autocracia.
Aristocracia: Gobierno de los mejores. En la antigüedad los mejores eran los más sabios, ricos y poderosos, pero actualmente solo significa las últimas dos cosas.
Bancocracia: Gobierno de entidades financieras.
Cibercracia: Gobierno a través del uso eficaz de la información.
Cientocracia: Políticas publicas basadas en la ciencia.
Cleptocracia: Gobierno de ladrones.
Criptarquía: Gobierno secreto u oculto.
Critarquía: Gobierno de los jueces.
Demarquía: Gobierno por ciudadanos elegidos aleatoriamente.
Diarquía: Gobierno de dos personas. (Triunvirato seria con tres personas, Tetrarquía cuatro, y mas o menos así en adelante)
Estratocracia: Gobierno donde el ejército y la política es la misma cosa. No es una dictadura militar, sino, por ejemplo, el gobierno británico de Chipre.
Etnocracia: Gobierno por un grupo étnico dominante
Futarquia: Gobierno en la que las decisiones de las autoridades podrían estar sometidas a los mercados de apuestas, que tienen mayor capacidad de agregar información.
Gerontocracia: Gobierno de los ancianos.
Gynecocracia: Gobiernan mujeres. Matriarquia implica que existe un poder jerárquico superior de mujeres hacia hombres.
Ideocracia: Gobierno erigido en base a una ideología o filosofía que rige todos los aspectos de la vida de la sociedad.

For context, see my previous post.
Listening to knowledgable people discuss FPL can be very helpful in filling gaps in matches you missed, and can keep your knees holding firm. But there are dozens of FPL podcasts, and most of them are over an hour long. It’s impossible for any of us to listen to all of them. Or is it?
Yes, usually it is. But each week I spend about 15 hours walking the dog, taking the bus, and walking to work, and while I do that, I listen to podcasts. Usually I listen to one or two FPL podcasts, and lots of politics podcasts. This week, I decided to listen only to FPL-relevant podcasts. So in the last 8 days I listened to 22 FPL and PL podcasts that aired between GW5 and GW6. My original intent was to rank them, but that proved to be too difficult. How could I compare the third one I listened to to the 9th one I listened to? So instead, I’ve given them letter grades. I took notes while listening to each episode, and assigned the grade at the end of that episode.
A note on the methodology. I don’t know everyone’s interests — just my own. But I know one interest that we share -- the one that brings us together here -- and that’s FPL. So these rankings are purely from an FPL standpoint. You may also be interested in chess, or Serie A, but I will only grade the podcasts insofar as they relate to FPL. Furthermore, I will only try my best to grade them as they relate to FPL in general, and not my team in particular.
Without further ado, the grades. (I'm American.)
Edit: I will listen to the post-GW5 episodes of !FF Surgery and Football Ramble tomorrow and add them to the list.
Premier League Podcasts:
Totally Football. A-. Very similar format to The Guardian, but in their coverage of matches they talk a lot more about individual performances than just the team performances. They also talk about formations and which players benefit most from the way the team is playing.
Football Weekly - The Guardian. B+. They spend a lot of time talking about off-the-field issues with teams. Only the first half-hour is premier league; they also do championship, even some lower leagues, and basically every league in Europe. It’s great football stuff, but not at all helpful for fantasy. Side note: I am a big fan of Barry Glendenning.
The Game. C. Again a similar format to the above, but the PL content is interspersed with other content. And they focus on issues like handshake-gate and Neymar-Cavani more than team performance or individual performance.
Men in Blazers. D. The first 12 minutes – – 20% space – – was about baldness. Then they say the results of the previous week's matches and make jokes about them. Some decent moments, but usually off-topic. Last ten minutes are MLS.
FPL Podcasts:
3 Amigos. A. This one was the most surprisingly good, given that I hadn't heard of it. The first ten minutes is just their teams and mini league. They go through the upcoming GW's matches as a springboard for talking about who to bring in. There is definitely more in-depth analysis than a lot of other podcasts, including value and fixtures and underlying stats. They go into xG and xA and upcoming fixtures and how teams will likely set up against their upcoming opposition.
FML FPL. A. The talk about their teams and sponsors is short and sweet. They analyze teams and games with a specific eye to players and their potential for FPL. And there's some great FPL theory interwoven -- optimal lineup, where to spend money, etc.
Fantasy Football Scoutcast. A-. They start by talking about how many points they got last week and who on their teams got those points. But rather than just citing the facts, they use it to talk about why they picked those players and what they think of them going forward. Then they transition to specific segments; this week was Aguero v Kane, mid-priced mids, best value defenders, and bonus magnets. Really interesting stuff, and quite different. Lots of stats, and lots of sensitivity to FPL concerns like price. This is the podcast that seems to have the highest overall knowledge; most of the others have one person who seems to know a lot more than the other or the rest.
Tinker Men. B+. They started with who played/didn't midweek. Then they compared players using underlying stats. The usual talk about who to captain, who to bring in, punt, clean sheet, best wing backs. In addition they have a "red list"; most likely to get a red card (Cabaye and Arnautovic). Good, short, well done, no wasted time, some interesting and different things.
Just Offside. B+. Really pleasant guys, some statistical analysis. Lots of answering of questions from Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit; not super in-depth answers, but that's what you get when they answer basically all of them. You can skip the last 10 minutes when they start running down the top 10 of their mini league.
Who Got the Assist?. B+. Two positive guys that talk a bit about their teams, cover the previous week's matches, and discuss potential moves -- usually in the context of their own teams, but often branching out. They do two interesting unique features: psychology corner, which discusses various psychological notions that are relevant to playing FPL (this week: Gambler's Fallacy), and market watch, which it seems looks at who is being dropped for whom.
Always Cheating. B. They spend a lot of time (15 minutes!) talking about their teams -- who they brought in and how their former teams did. Then they do their mini-league. Then they go over a few concepts, like what to do about Manchester City, best defense, expensive flops and what to do about them. I would have liked interesting theory, like how much to spend on your defense, how to spread that money around; but instead they just talk about good defenders to have.
The DANalysis. B-. Three people, pretty poor production (echoey). They go through the matches, and talk about who to pick/avoid from each match. Not much new. It seems like only one guy actually contributes content; the others interject questions, but don't offer much positively.
Four Point Hit. C. Sounds like it was record on an iPhone in a bathroom with four guys sitting around it. Starts with what they were right and wrong about, which isn't really helpful. Decent analysis, but out-of-date one week later because it's only recorded once a month. I'd love to grab a beer and talk FPL with these guys, but I don't get much from the podcast.
AUSFPL. C. This is mostly just an analysis of the previous GW's matches, and predictions for the upcoming week. Very little talk of anything specifically FPL. When it is, it's in passing with no support. Like, "Ritchie looks good at his price".
12th Man. C. The first 12 minutes, 1/3 of the podcast, is about some game they're playing with stickers. No idea what it is, but it involves players from the 90s. The rest is going through the previous week's matches and commenting on them. This week contained a pretty interesting analysis of Liverpool. But not much in it for fantasy.
Fantasy Soccer FC. C. They go through last week's games and offer a pretty surface level analysis of the teams, only occasionally bringing up players and even less often fantasy discussion. I turned it off with 20 minutes ago because I couldn't stand the cohosts yelling usually about how he cant take trust injury reports.
Association Fantasy Football Cast United. C. Starts with 10 minutes or so of banter unrelated to football. Then they transition into their own teams. Not much new or helpful.
Shirts v Skins. C-. Worst production quality by far; I had to crank the volume all the way up and it still sounded like it was in a tin can. They spend the first half recapping last weeks results in the second half talking about the upcoming fixtures. Things really go off the rails when they stop talking about last week's fixtures. In the middle, they just talk about random things and interrupt each other a lot for 10 minutes or so. They are the only podcast who are still encouraging people to pick up Hegazi, which makes me question their knowledge.
The Gaffer Tapes. C-. Three guys, one of whom has been gone for a while. The main host sounds exactly like David Brent, including his vocal inflection and the sense of humour. They had a guest who works at man city and plays FPL, but, while interesting, her contributions were not about man city players fantasy prospects nor really helpful for fantasy in general.
Fantasy Fat Cats. D. This podcast started by calling Vardy racist and Neymar's sister hot. Lots of anger and swearing; they sound like they just discovered curse words and are trying to use them as often as they can. For player recommendations to pick up, they just give names -- not much evidence provided for any of their recommendations. They don't really talk about players. Mostly they name a previous match and then make crass jokes about it.
Waiting on the Bonus Points. D. The first 15 minutes are the head to head between two of the hosts. The next 10 minutes is the consequences for each of them (they tied); one had to invite people to an FPL party in the bathroom, the other had to eat something spicy. Mildly entertaining, but not at all helpful. Then some decent overall analysis. Poor production value; lots of echoes.
Gameweek. F. Very high production value. Lots of musical cuts and such. But it's hard to imagine a worse FPL podcast. They talk over each other constantly, go on wild tangents, discuss their teams, and then cover which players did well. One of the guys apparently didn't realize the deadline was Friday, so you don't get the sense they do much research.
The Game Podcast (The Times). F. Supposedly about FPL. The guys constantly talk over each other to the point that you want to smash your phone on the ground to get just one of them to shut up. No real analysis or news; they basically just cover who did well and who didn't the previous week, which one learns just by logging in to the site.
Which ones will I keep listening to?
Always Cheating is the only FPL podcast that is out by 8am Eastern on Monday; so I'll listen to Football Weekly, Totally Football and Always Cheating while I walk the dog Monday morning. Every other podcast references (or uses ideas/stats from without referencing) FFScoutcast, so I'll keep listening to that; unfortunately the podcast comes out on Thursdays, which is pretty late in the week for impact. (I think the youtube videos come out earlier.) 3 Amigos is the best bang-for-your-buck; tons of stats and such thrown at you in a short time, so I'll listen to that on Tuesday. FML FPL, Who Got the Assist?, and Just Offside will round out my weekly listening, with one of them maybe making way in weeks where there are other things to listen to. And I'll check out Four Point Hit once a month when it comes out, if I can get to it that week.
Finally, a bonus feature. Tips for FPL podcasters.

2017.09.22 17:20 zsghost Does EVERY school have a bar in New York City? An Effort-post

With Gameday in NYC this weekend, I wanted to test the assertion that every school had its own bar in Manhattan. I've spent the past six hours trawling alumni association Facebook pages to find, ideally, a bar that there are currently consistent, publicly listed gamewatches at for the school, although consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds and I probably messed up in a few places. No Brooklyn bars because screw that noise. Here's what I was able to find:

Corrections appreciated - shocked I couldn't find a Duke bar, so I'm sure someone knows the answer to that one. I'll do a big update later today. A bunch of the NYC alumni pages I went on mentioned something about Gameday filming them, so I'm sure some ESPN intern has their own list somewhere.
UPDATE: added suggestions 12:40pm CST
UPDATE 2: i regret telling y'all i appreciated corrections
UPDATE 3: be advised this stuff changes around a lot so if you're reading this after like january 2018 please check to confirm its still the joint prior to the excursion
UPDATE 4: This blew up, so
FREQUENT COMMENTS AND THEIR RESPONSES
  1. "I can't believe [ ] has only [ ] bars!" I'm not saying that. My goal was to find at least one bar frequented by fans of each FBS school. If more are easily found, I threw on multiples. Maybe there are others! I just gave up after five minutes of googling.
  2. "[ ] is also a great bar for [ ] fans." Cool, thanks! I'll look into a bit and probably throw it in later.
  3. "The website for [ ] doesn't mention [ ] at all." I went off of where alumni groups said they meet. If the bar doesn't advertise that, it probably says a thing or two about your fanbase, huh?
  4. "The real [ ] bar is [ ], no one goes to [ ] ." I'll look into that and probably add the first bar you mentioned.
  5. "lol rutgers" Not to defend Rutgers, but there probably doesn't need to be an official Rutgers bar in Manhattan, y'know?
  6. "Pacific Standard is the Cal bar. It's in Brooklyn." iT's In BrOoKlYn
  7. "Here is an article that did this already." Okay.

2017.06.29 08:56 NSIMods June 29th, 2017: Organizing_Secrets Interview

Earlier this week, several interviews were deleted. As a result, they'll all be reposted in their entirety today. We sincerely apologize to everyone affected by this, and for any inconvenience this may have caused.
- the NSI mod team
The original interview with Organizing_Secrets was posted on September 26th, 2016.
Tell us a little about yourself.
My actual name is Orion and I'm the best twenty five year old Pizza Delivery Guy located in the state of Ohio. Also, sometimes I attempt to be a badass writer dude on the internet and for some reason people seem to listen to me! I'm fairly tall at six feet, four inches and I sprinkle both Spanish and Japanese words into everyday conversation despite being neither race myself. And if I win the Miss America Pageant I promise to donate at least... 0.02% of my prize money to helping...someone. Probably. Eh. No promises.
I consider myself a pretty fun and quick-witted individual. Hopefully some of the people in the OOC chat will agree that I can be a smarmy, lovable shit head when I want to be. I'm also super shy in real life and suffer from depression, an allergy to bees, shellfish, and dogs, as well as a rather serious temper that I only recently learned to keep in check.
Hmm, what else? Well, my favorite color is Teal, my favorite movie of all time is Big Trouble in Little China, my favorite horror movie is Friday The 13th Part III, and my two pet rats are amazing. I'm a huge gamer and anime lover but I'll go into that junk further down. Keep reading to see Secrets reveal one weird trick! NoSleep writers hate it! 50% of people can't tell if this is fake!
When did you first become interested in horror? Was there a specific moment you knew you wanted to write in that genre?
I've always been around horror in one way or another. I was raised on horror movies and for the majority of my life I split my viewing habits between comedies, horror flicks and 80s action/buddy cop movies. But the exact time that horror became THE focused genre in my life was December 2010 when my best friend (Who happens to be the basis for Tattle) showed me a little youtube channel called Marble Hornets. I jumped on the whole creepypasta trend and also started watching ARGs fairly constantly. It got pretty serious as well. I remember that I was losing sleep over researching paranormal lore as well as having some pretty rough nightmares. I started having Slender Man dreams at least once a month and would wake up screaming with my mum shaking me awake. Good times!
I pretty much decided to write horror the exact day I posted the first Case File. I was working on a horror "project" with my girlfriend at the time that I'll talk about in the next question. Regardless, I was sitting at work with my laptop and hashed out the original Case File One in an hour or two, went over it with my girlfriend to make sure it wasn't utter shit, posted it, and then lost my mind as it caught on and the cool kids of NoSleep started talking to me. Even to this day I am utterly amazed that people jumped on The Case Files like they did.
How did you initially discover NoSleep? What prompted you to begin writing for it?
My girlfriend came across the NoSleep Podcast and introduced me to it in...March/April of 2013. It was a few weeks before I posted Case File One. Anyway, I listened to about a third of the first episode of the podcast before just following the story links to the actual site and reading for myself. During that time period I was working at the family bakery from 11pm till 7am. So I'd wake up around 3 pm every day, toss on a Nujabes playlist on youtube, (Look him up amigos. Nujabes.) and I'd read NoSleep stories until it was time for me to go to work. Oh, it was glorious.
Around this time we were working on doing a creepypasta youtube series of our own. I was big on The Holders Series at the time so we had decided to do something involving that, Slender Man, The Rake, The Blue Man, as well as a ton of monsters that her and I brainstormed over the course of a week or two. We then decided to add a sinister Organization to the mix as we felt it needed a human threat as well. Honestly, we came up with some killer ideas that I later used as Case Files such as The Lightning Man, E-byss, and Organization 440. And rather recently I've been setting things up to use the last few ideas we had that I haven't yet written into The Case Files. In the planned series my girlfriend was the girl that gets taken by E-byss in Case File Three and I was supposed to have the role that Remy Dubois has in Case File Twenty Six. Annnnnnyways, I got this silly idea to add one more character to the mix: Organizing_Secrets. He would be the guy that eventually clued us into all the creepypasta monsters around us and give us the lowdown on Organization 440 and then he was going to die super hard. The plan was to use The Case Files to hype up the youtube series. However, the Files blew up and I quickly realized that I was going to have way more success and fun if I just kept up with The Case Files. And thus I became a thing! After blowing up in the way that I did I reevaluated everything and actually planned out a lot of events that to this day still haven't been revealed to people yet. I have some stuff coming up on the horizon that was planned almost three and a half years ago.
Actually...thinking about it now I realized that some of the coolest stuff I've come up with was due to me brainstorming things with another person. Would anyone be down for a brainstorm session? I want to see if we can come up with some cool ideas!
What is the most terrifying thing you have personally experienced?
When we were talking about me doing this interview I knew there was one subject that I had to talk about regardless of what questions I was asked. I don't want this to feel shoehorned in but I believe the worst three experiences I have ever experienced in terms of fear involves the untimely deaths of half my immediate family. Or rather, hearing the news that they had been in accidents and then waiting to see if they'd pull through. All three were in separate car accidents that left them barely alive but hooked up to life support and all three of them ended up dying from the wounds they received. The most recent one was my dad who was hit from behind by some drugged out dude while my dad was out riding his motorcycle. I actually want to talk about that one in particular because we had heard he was hit just shortly after it happened and jumped in our car to race to the hospital he was at. It was like a three hour drive and I just remember us speeding like crazy trying to get there. Unfortunately we didn't even make it to the hospital before he died but I remember this being the last time I was really, truly scared of something. I was upset and sad that yet another family member of mine was going to die because someone decided to hit them with their car.
I honestly have no idea if this has affected my writing in any way, shape, or form. Someone would have to read through the series and point it out to me for me to see if I really have any issues that I've been secretly writing in the Files. That said, the three deaths have had a permanent effect on my personality and outlook on life. I haven't shed a single tear or even really gotten sad since the day of Dad's funeral. I'm fairly numb to death at this point in a way that I know is unhealthy. I've pretty much stopped talking to the rest of my family on my Dad's side which is the side all three deaths were on. A few weeks ago I went home to see my family for my birthday and talked to them about how my grandfather is right on the cusp of passing away. He's got like...30-40% functionality in his heart or something. I remember my fiance pinching me or something while we were talking about them because I was talking about him biting the bullet in such a casual manner that it was upsetting my other family members. Thinking back on it now I can see that I shouldn't have had the demeanor that I had but at the time I didn't realize it at all. So I'd imagine that if I went to see a therapist they would have some sort of diagnosis about how detached to life I am. But I dunno! I'm a pretty happy dude and people die.
I do sort of have a regret tied into all of this though. When my dad died back in 2011 I had just dropped out of college. Again. And had no direction for my life. I really do wish that he would have been around to see me grow as a writer and make something of myself, even if that just ended up being a small amount of internet fame. So hey, thanks for letting me get all of that out of my system. Even though I'm not completely sure of it myself I imagine that this trauma has affected my writing in ways I can't see myself and I thought it deserved to be mentioned. Jesus. I wrote a lot about that. I apologize. Now then, back to happy things!
What are some of your biggest influences from media? Are there any stories, on /NoSleep or elsewhere, books, films, or music that have had an impact on your writing?
Oh god. I'm huge on influences. You know what? Let's just jump in to how much things have influenced the Case Files. Prep yourselves you stallions!
So the general set up for The Case Files premise itself is based on Correspondence by Bloodstains. Easily my favorite series on NoSleep.
Organization 440 was initially inspired by The Umbrella Corporation from the Resident Evil franchise but I've been making great strides to evolve them further passed that initial concept.
The Lightning Man from Case File One was indirectly inspired by The Slender Man. I took the The Slender Man concept and mixed it with a fear I used to have at an old farmhouse I lived in where I could see the whole field light up at night during storms. I was always afraid that I would see some figure out there.
Case File Two's setting is a direct reference to The Thing. More specifically I used an area from the Playstation 2 video game The Thing as the visual reference for my writing.
Earth-A being an alternate dimension introduced in Case File Six was 100% because I had just binged Bioshock Infinite, a video game all about jumping to alternate realities and timelines. I liked the ideas so much that Earth-A was created.
In Case File Eighteen the creatures that are interacted with in The Architect Project are directly inspired by me wanting to do The Rake but not being able to due to creepypasta monsters being a no no on NoSleep.
And finally, in Case File Twenty Four the town of Holy Oaks and the supernatural happenings within it are a homage to the Silent Hill franchise.
Other than writing, what are some of your hobbies? What other creative mediums do you enjoy?
Aside from writing I'm afraid I lack artistic hobbies. I do record myself playing video games and try to add commentary to it in an effort to get noticed on youtube. I haven't released anything yet but it is a nice little hobby and is actually therapeutic in a way. I also watch a ton of people play video games on youtube. I'd actually say that this is what I spend the majority of my free time doing. Hell, at this very moment of typing these words out I have a video going on in the background of some dudes playing Mega Man. Youtube is my television equivalent.
I also watch a fair bit of anime that it should count as a hobby in its own right. Giant robots, romance, sports, and horror anime are my usual genres and I can say that I've watched enough anime to the point of learning bits of Japanese and wanting to adapt the Japanese culture. Haha, I do try to not be cringey about it though. I'm very aware of how anime nerds can appear to others and I've always taken great strides to not be an utter buttlord about it.
So, apart from recording myself playing video games I'd also say that video games themselves count as a separate hobby. I play a shit ton of games. Whenever I'm writing a File I'm usually also playing at least one video game in between paragraphs. Some days I'll be playing two or three games at the same time and I just switch my attention between them. It gets pretty dumb but then again I primarily play strategy games that you can pause often. So it's not like I'm playing Call of Duty on three different TVs and playing with my feet attached to controllers.
The Case Files are written in a found document style, presented as withheld government and military studies. What made you decide to use that format as a method of storytelling? What are the biggest advantages and disadvantages of that style?
Well, as I mentioned above one of the reasons was due to Correspondence influencing me to write in a nonstandard style. I also ended up writing in the document style due to the planned tie in to the youtube series. It had to be presented as real and yet we knew we couldn't have one person see and survive a myriad of dangerous beings. The final, and perhaps most important reason is that at the time of the first Case File I didn't know how to write proficiently let alone write interesting fiction. I used the style to cover up my weakness while I build up my skills. In the end I kind of fell in love with the style and stuck with it this entire time.
The biggest advantage of the found document style is that your narrator can technically be dead. It's a great way to show just how dangerous these monsters are by looking into someone's last moments or thoughts. I also think that there's something supremely unsettling about getting creepy emails, texts, letters, etc. Documents and files are supposed to be boring business stuff and suddenly they're filled with creepy crawlies. I'd like to think that gets to readers.
One of the bigger disadvantages is that documents can often come across as way too logical and informational as opposed to emotional. If you don't find a way to really up the creep factor then I feel people to get scared of the supposedly scary story.
Several of the files have a science fiction theme to them, and make reference to alternate dimensions. How do you incorporate sci-fi elements into horror stories while maintaining enough realism to still portray them as government findings?
I'd like to think that I have a knack or sense for what will and won't be believable. I usually just go with my gut as to whether whichever Case File I had just submitted is scary enough. But as the world of The Files gets more and more fleshed out I've seen more SciFi pop in to at explain at least a few things. I also believe that since I portray all these entities and concepts in a consistent tone it helps to push the reader into thinking this is indeed a shared universe.
Another trick is that I really only imply a lot of stuff instead of outright say it. I feel like this helps a lot because as long as I sort of leave something open to interpretation I can always fall back to a "safety net". Luckily, nobody has really given me any gruff over what The Files contained and now that /CryoSleep is a thing I'm going to be putting the more science fiction themed stuff over there.
The Case Files range from featuring existing mythological creatures, such as Tulpas, Piru, changelings, wraiths, and shapeshifters, to actual figures in history, like Jack the Ripper, to fictional entities you created. Which do you prefer writing about? Which is the most challenging?
Oh God...everything is so much fun. I love all the entities I've created so much. I guess we'll split things up and describe things I do/don't like about each category.
As for the established creatures, I feel that they are both easy and yet confining to write for. It's super easy because there's a ton of built up lore that you can just apply and use. I think you see a lot of this with the Piru or the Japanese Mythological Creatures. I could look them up, see the rules that they abide by, and then suddenly paragraphs could just flow out. On the other hand, I have to at least abide by some of the established lore or else run the risk of people saying that it probably isn't the mythological creature I'm trying to portray.
Jack is kinda...a special project. And this is sort of where I mentioned above that I "imply" things. I technically never said that Jack was Jack the Ripper because that could possibly be against the rules. Depending on whether or not a mod decided that I was using an established thing. I think it's gray area personally. But yeah, I definitely imply that Jack is Jack the Ripper as well as the person behind some of the worst serial killers in American history as well. Slasher movies are my second favorite horror movie genre behind found footage and I've kind of been slowly building Jack up to be my Jason Voorhees/Freddy KruegeMichael Myers. He's just this unstoppable dude that is ripping people apart. I think that's also his weakness though. Many people don't see slashers as scary. They seem them more like big lugs that just make a big gory mess just for the sake of big gory mess. I would attribute that as the main reason I only just now wrote a follow up story for Jack.
And with the ones that are mostly me putting in the work lorewise I think that's both their strength and weakness. The Hysteria Project created a ton of badass entities that I've had a blast writing and that many people are crazy about. They are also a ton of work to write. I have to do all the lore building myself and make up rules that they abide by behind the scenes. This is stuff that the readers may never actually see.
Multiple readers have submitted artwork of the entities included in your stories, and are active in updating the Case Files Wiki page. How has community involvement affected how you approach writing your series?
As far as the community goes I would say that they are a key part of The Case Files if not THE key part. Secrets and Tattle are always in the comments section trying to goad or interact with readers. I would almost go as far as to say that anyone reading a Case File should also read the top ten to twenty comments as lore is often hidden there.
What research is involved when writing the Files?
Research depends on the Case File. For instance, for the File about the Piru I actually scoured over topographical maps of the park they were in to make sure I got the area right. But then you'll also have stories like The Lightning Man where I don't research a single thing. I write out the concept in one burst and I'm done.
A character named "Tattle" works alongside the protagonist of the Case Files, Secrets, and occasionally provides exposition on Secrets' life. How much of what Tattle has divulged has been influenced by your actual experiences?
I would say that everything Tattle says about Secrets (Me) is true. Or at the very least it's how I perceive myself. Tattle has mentioned the darker shit from my past like bad breakups, money troubles, or my family deaths. People may think that it was all story building but I just used my real life to make Secrets looks like a more believable character because he was actually real. Likewise, there are also times where Tattle insults or tries to provoke Secrets, usually when I haven't posted in a long time. I'd like to think that this is me calling myself out on being lazy or not devoting enough time to writing and then I air that dirty laundry out for all my readers to see.
You were formerly employed as a child care worker, interacting with troubled youth. Did that experience have an impact on your writing, or the way you develop characters? If so, how?
You know, it really didn't. I already didn't like people long before I started working there. If anything working that job actually showed me that I just dislike humans even more.
I've seen parents dump their kids into the delinquent system just because they didn't want to deal with them. I've met fifteen year old rapists that just wanted to get released and get back to sodomizing their younger siblings. I've met kids that had killed people and were really just waiting till they turned 18 so they could go to regular jail. Also got stabbed twice, ouch. In the girls unit I met young women who whored their bodies out to hundreds of men just because they could, usually because of daddy issues now that I think about it. When I got transferred over there I literally had twelve year old girls asking me to have sex with them and it was...some dark shit. And yet, this is exactly how I already perceived the world so I do not feel like it altered my writing style.
Are there any topics you feel are too controversial for you to address or that you prefer not to explore in your writing?
Nope. Nothing is off limits but it has to fit if that makes sense. I'm not going to kill or rape a child just for shock value. If I honestly thought that it was integral to the story I'd put it in. That being said, I can't think of a single story idea where child rape would be necessary. But yeah, nothing is technically off the table.
Do you have any favorite reader reactions to your writing?
I think that theories are my favorite. I've had people scour these stories and put together a ton of small clues that I never even saw myself. It is just nuts to see just what people think you are going to do with the stories next.
As a successful author on NoSleep, do you have any advice for new contributors?
If you happen to be writing a series make sure you link those previous parts. Seriously, you'll get a ton more traction and upvotes if people can easily go back to the beginning and then advance one at a time.
What has been the most valuable lesson you've learned since you began posting to NoSleep?
Consistent posting. Turns out posting once every several months doesn't get you a solid reader base.
What are your short-term and long-term writing goals?
Short term goals are thus: Release at least two Files a month. I also have three projects that I'd like to do with other people and will probably throw a call to arms post in OOC within the year.
Slightly longer term is to finish the compilation book I've been doing for Case Files 1-20. I've been working with an illustrator and getting some sick art done. You guys are going to love it. I'm also cleaning up a tooooooooon of typos, rewriting a few shitty lines, and adding some bonus stuff like dossiers. It's my first book so I want it done right and as a true love letter to fans of The Case Files.
Community Questions:
From Grindhorse: Do you draw inspiration from the SCP Foundation? If so, do you also contribute there? If not, what generally spurs a new monster or oddity for you?
At the time of this writing I still have yet to read a single story from SCP Foundation. I have never been to the site and when I wrote the first Case File my only experience with SCP was that horror game floating around that youtubers were playing. I thought SCP Foundation was a scary video game series. Had I known SCP Foundation existed I probably would have never made the Files. I either would have been to afraid of someone calling me out on stealing the idea or I would have just written stuff for SCP instead.
As for ideas I feel that literally anything can inspire me. I just watched the new Blair Witch movie yesterday, now I want to write a spooky camping story. I watched the anime Attack on Titan last month, now I have a bunch of plans for giants and stuff. I drove by a storage unit a few weeks ago, now I have ideas of someone storing an entity in a storage unit and it breaks out and stalks the security guard. I've learned to keep pen and paper on me at all times so that I can jot down an idea.
From hrhdaf: Are you ever tempted to break away from your Case File series and write something completely different, or have you ever done this under a different username?
I have not. At this point I'm invested in my writing style. I like doing things as documents. I honestly see The Case Files as less of a series and more as a writing style/framing device. Iia has dick spiders, I have documents. I also do not have any other reddit accounts.
From kneeod: Just how many secrets would you say, on average, you do organize in a day? Closest approximation, please.
42.
From krstbrwn: What is your favorite thing to do on a rainy day? Can you score me free pizza? Who is the most prolific author on nosleep, in your opinion?
Rainy day? Hmm. I'd have to go with lounging in my den, watching some chump asses blunder through a hilarious video game on youtube, with tons of snacks.
I could definitely probably snag you some pizza.
Bloodstains. I would submit myself to them like a...thing does to a...higher thing.
From AsForClass: How do you organize your ideas? How do you fit those ideas into categories for projects? Do you find it difficult sometimes?
I use tons and tons of documents to organize my documents. Haha. I have a word doc with the timeline of all Files in it. I have a separate doc that keeps track of the location of each story. I have a word doc that lists facts about entities I haven't shared yet just so I know not to reveal them on accident.
I think my biggest hurdle these days is decided exactly what framing device to use. Do I do emails, a journal, transcribe a video camera's footage? I'm pretty much always trying to come up with another cool way to write a document and that can get pretty difficult.
From Human_Gravy: Is it true that if you don't use it, you lose it?
Lies. Horde everything in case you need it for the final boss.
From MikeyKnutson: Who's your favorite James Bond?
Connery. This wasn't even up for debate.
From Organizing_Secrets: Is it true that woman all over the world want you and men want to be you?
Well, hey there good looking. I like the cut of both your jib and your loins. Those might be the same thing. I don't know what a jib is. Anyway, I can tell that we are Gods cut from the same glorious cloth. I'd like to correct you however, BOTH men and women want us. We transcend sexuality.

Previous Notes
  • [Day 155 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 1 - YouTube]
    • @DanScavino @RT_com @RTUKNews
    • The heroin banana story in Spain is trying to {{ throw us off the trail }} from the mangos.
    • They're going through Haiti, Moisse President of Haiti has a quote unquote banana farm, where they are being loaded
    • I don't want this to distract from the Awan brotherhood
    • Awan recap
    • 4 car companies, 4 mortgage companies: how many car companies does a family of 6 living together need? I would think 1 would be enough
    • Basmati rice has a sweet odor that throws the dogs off at customs. They've been used for decades for smuggling.
    • Lee Valley Drive is where we are looking at now to add proof to the case
    • Awans were running a pharm company too, ordering animal drugs and empty pill caps. {{ Put 2 and 2 together }}
    • 111 recap
    • Isn't the 111th the army, the secret service for the ISI? Why yes it is. It's been involved in many coups. If you look up the Pakistani 111th (also called the triple-1), they almost say 'coups are us'. It's thought they've been involved in many of the bombings in India, as well as places around the world, like the Gulen coups.
    • {{ See video for the Awan's lee valley address around min 5 }}
    • Awan's Transport Logistics company operations mgr is Mohammad Abrar Siddique
    • "Did you know the Awan Brothers could get you overseas employment, especially if you want to build a Gulen School? @wikileaks" [email protected]
    • Awan brothers have another business--produce biz--in Heidelberg, PA {{ Of course it's 'Heidelberg' doublefacepalm }}
    • Another business in Waco, TX {{ Of course it's Waco }}
    • George speculates about Rockville MD home that houses transient PK MDs; a home Muzzafar Awan owns
    • Sayed Fai has been mentioned in several of Hillary's emails, talking about bringing Mangos in from Haiti, Mexico, India, Pakistan into Ohare in Chicago, taking them to behind the Gulen school, passing them through USDAFAA registration and moving them through Raja Foods. Don't know about the Haitian mangos
    • 50 diplomats worked on this; they worked on this for 2 yrs; HRC called it the "Mango Mission"
    • Btw, Sayed Fai was caught with drug money and admitted he was an operative for PK ISI. He set up the ratline.
    • The Indian Intelligence said the Awans were a spy ring[] -- {{ Weak Linkage, George }}
    • Shady $1.7B Iran payout was cash-only deal, White House says - NY Daily News
    • When you plant a revenge motive in young men's minds, and say that it's ok to undermine the society by selling them drugs, by taking their kids, by raping their women under drugs, by taking their organs--this is a very dangerous situation
    • Now more than ever with Huma with her PK mother and her ties to Muslim Brotherhood; her mother created Muslim sisterhood
    • HRC's 60k emails, and Humas 650k emails need to be disclosed to the public
    • McCabe recap
  • [Day 155 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 2 - YouTube]
    • A second snowden is out there talking about the Awan brothers
    • Might have missed it with Nanoset--had a gov procurement expert go through a system for awards management which the fed uses for bid contracts, and didn't find a lot of hits for Nanoset
    • A lot of hits for Bloomberg for a Nanoset LLC being sold to BioPhan in 2008
    • My working theory has to change now.
    • Nanoset is an annual IP conference in Lahore, PK
    • Now I'm thinking that because these records are completely erased now that maybe this was a reboot of the old Nanoset LLC that was selling IP in the bio field
    • Did get it right on PK 111--'coups are us" -- it's the secret police in PK;
    • Had a global info grid expert from NSA weigh in saying that the CIA controls all of global grid 3 and global grid 4, this PK area
    • My dad was 37th division and decades later still identifies with it; So I believe the 111 is all about
    • The 111th is also the division that has managed the ratlines of drugs for 20 yrs
    • Imran Rice Mills; also in Springfield but in MA
    • He's in DC but has plenty of time to set up rice companies in Canada, MA, etc; as well as their transporation companies
    • Interestingly enough when Nanoset LLC was sold in 2008, it was sold to BioPhan CEO Michael L Weiner a very well-known lawyer in NYC
    • I don't know if he's related to Anthony Weiner, but wouldn't that be something, if this was the old Anthony Weiner-Huma Abedin partnership to have the Muslim Brotherhood steal the secrets and sell it to Anthony Weiner's Mossad type contacts.. I hope that's not true. "As a citizen of Israel {{ Just to explain, although GWS was born in Cleveland Ohio in 1960 as selfreported in his FBI FOIA request, as a Jewish-American he has a right-of-return to Israel by Jure Sanguinis. Hope that clarifies this statement. I was confused too, no worries. }} I hope that's not true. I hope we're not getting our technology that way. I'm pursuing it, not protecting Israel."
    • If you have these people who have demonstrated that they can hack servers, cellphones, then you have to consider that as a potential for intercepted communications in the Trump campaign, in Trump tower, as well as secrets from the NIH, the vaccine organizations.
    • This could be yet another Dyncorp hacking organization, given the evidence.
    • If Capitol Police weren't the one working the burglary I would have more confidence
    • If there weren't all these articles talking about material missing, if they didn't have top secret access...
    • Right now we're at 23 companies, there are a whole bunch more we just haven't had time to catalogue them yet
    • I'm going to go back on my gov contract thing with Nanoset and thinking that they may be more involved in bioengineering hacking into like NIH and National institutes of infectious disease
    • Still confused about the Nanoset Baylor angle
    • If Dyncorp in falls church VA, they could be using the veterans at the VA could be used as a cohort as unauthorized, unpermissioned vaccine and virus testing. Using the military records down in TX for getting overseas VA records, creating cohorts and having the NIH and CDC running experiments on the veterans; which is better than trying to kill the veterans or suicide them.
    • {{ I don't really follow the above, seems rambling and incoherent, just don't see the connections G sees }}
  • [Day 156 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 1 - YouTube]
    • Sooner or later we'd get to Murder we've got everything else.
    • The reason I chose RT is Russia is being accused in this situation, and i think the people who are defending themselves have the best motive to publish this information and get the truth out. If you were being illegally accused of the things they're being accused of you'd want to put this out too.
    • I believe there's so muting of RT here in America
    • I'm going to give the 31 House Democrats a way out of here with Dan Scavino, so please send this on and I'd like his staff to see it too.
    • Eventually when you run all these Ratlines and you do these hacks and wiretaps for the intelligence community, you're going to end up having to kill someone. And when you run a lot of agencies that defraud people and so forth you're going to run into a lot of people who want to sue you.
    • Awan recap
    • Going to give new life to Nanoset Technologies, I shouldn't have been so jumpy last night and shouldn't have gotten off the nanoset trail. As a matter of fact I was right on the trail.
    • Again with all the mortgage companies 22 companies, Affordable, Alain, AgroMarketing
    • 6-7 car companies in all
    • One of the things they did is take cars from other dealers, and did consignment, which means you put it on [your] lot. You pay nothing for inventory, so it looks like you are a car dealer, and you could be using the money for other things. Then if someone buys the car, you pay the dealer back.
    • But in this case, people bought the cars and didn't pay the dealer back. Just taking other dealers cars and selling them. Of course the dealers sued, and Ibid Awan ran up a million dollars in debt doing that. After 16 months they would just crash the company with the credit situation.
    • Nanoset / New Dawn recap
    • [Correction] New Dawn actually goes back to 2002 in Texas
    • Abdul Hasnat in Dallas Ft Worth Area is where Nanoset Technology (with a y not ies) was first formed while she--Suraiya Begum--is the interior minister of Pakistan
    • If you wanted to offshore a bioweapons program or different 'unsavory technologies' in the CIA you would use someone like Pakistan because you've used them before with Operation Cyclone
    • The Awan Brothers LLC was originally formed in Bedford in Dallas Tx to Waco Tx, 9121 Monarch Drive - Sec of State filing
    • {{ OF COURSE monarch, of course}}
    • Registered Agent of Awan Brothers LLC is Arshad Mahmood
    • Arshad Mahmood I wonder is any relation to "Manassass Mahmood", in the VA area, who hired 2 Guatemalan MS13 gang members to suffocate a car dealer in Chesterfield, who was also muslim, who was in the Muslmi Mosque near this car dealership...called 3 amigos car dealership--used car dealers.
    • What if that 3 amigos car dealer was giving / consigning cars to one of these Awan car brothers dealerships and he was also going to sue them like Ibid was sued and would have created another firestorm and put tension on them yet again.
    • Well it turns out that the Manassas police are searching for this man <>; he's a PK national and turns out he fled to PK. If you add another Awan to the end of this name, Arshad Mahmood Awan, I think you'll find him in PK as well as Punjab
    • He should be a registered foreign agent under the FAR act, otherwise he was ducking the FAR act
    • I wouldn't say murder was involved here if they didn't put all the death cult stuff on their facebook
    • Everyone knows a common dodge for drug dealers is to bring in animal pharma, decapsulate it, recapsulate it and sell it to the VA, large nursing homes, major insurers like spectrum health, large consumers medicaid.
    • This is a common narcoterrorist tactic
    • If you are in the top secret hearings for the awan brothers; if you are involved in any businesses in the private sector; or any other awan businesses, it's time to come forward.
    • Just for the Congressional Staffers: I'm going to find a way for the private sector people to come forward.
    • Here's what we're going to do: We're going to go up to Dan Scavino, at the White house, going to go exactly what Devin Nunes did, figure out some reason to get over the Eisenhower building on the whitehoue grounds, you don't have to go to the white house. Just ask for Dan Scavino and just mention the word donuts. Just say "I love Portland donuts." Voodoo donuts is the key code. The first person who says "I love voodoo donuts" will be the person to take you into the SCIF and depose you.
    • DO NOT GO TO THE FBI. McCabe will cut you off and make your life miserable for being a whistleblower. I know from firsthand experience.
    • The SCIFs are compromised on Capitol hill with carbon fiber mics, but I do not believe the SCIF in the Eisenhower building has been compromised.
  • [Day 156 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 2 - YouTube]
    • ISIS was formed from PK intelligence which is ISI. They just added an S for all the brotherhoods created by the ISI
    • Just an interesting thing going back to 1979 when Zbigniew Bryzinski who created the Mujahadeen, which became Al Queda, which became ISIS
    • {{ Just like it was said years ago it's ISI+SIS (NATO) = ISIS }}
    • Nanoset recap, spinoffs from Nanoset technology
    • Abdul Hasnat, possible alias Mohammed Abdul Hasnat
    • Would be good to call the VA and warn them about the nanoset routers.
    • Cisco uncovers Telnet zero-day flaw in Wikileaks' Vault 7 CIA Dump
    • {{ Every sysadmin worth their salt has known >10yrs now to disable telnet (and ftp, other socket svcs not using ssh) so shame on you if you get zerodayed on your negligently running telnet service. This is doublefacepalm type stuff you only expect in the public sector, which clearly doesn't understand a secure socket from a hole in it's behind. In modern, hardened linux distros telnet is disabled by default, as it should be }}
    • {{ I don't understand George's explanation of zero day--there is no countdown. It simply means that the exploit was just discovered and no one has had any time to fix the flaw, ie: there have been zero days since the flaws discovery and can't be fixed. Zero day on wikipedia }}
    • Once you have compromised a router you can access other servers
    • Nanoset Technologies does Security Audits and the also sell Cisco Routers
    • They can also hack your system if he had an implanted revenge motive from a radical terrorist group
    • Yes Abdul Hasnat is an expert in Active Directory [user roles, permissions, account managment in the Microsoft Windows world] and yes he's an expert in Cisco routers.
    • Lots of evidence to show the company was not formed in 2011 but in 2002 with Suraiya Begum the interior minister of PK
    • Again that's a great way to offshore technology and weapons programs and testing programs, such as testing a population at the VA; you can offshore it with a foreign agent.
    • PK is not on the terror watchlist but you should know when someone has TOP SECRET access
    • There are 300 enterprise accounts that have the zeroday flaw that Cisco has.
    • I would like CISCO to publish those 300 accounts, of course they won't because that will tell hackers where to go. But those 300 accounts are going to include a lot of enterprise government customers. That list needs to be subpoenaed by the House Perm Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) to see if any work or security audits were done by Nanoset Technology.
    • Especially the VAs and the US Army at Kalin Texas Fort Hood; esp the VA in Maryland, Virginia and Texas
    • If you are working for the Congress full time, what do you need a fruit company for? A gas company for, a BP station in the middle of PA, a computer recycling company, a visa processing service? Why all these cutout companies?
    • Hillary talked about fresh produce and mangos all over her emails
    • We'll be looking at the New Dawn company in future episodes
  • [Day 156 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 3 - YouTube]
    • Answer questions for researchers to help them research
    • Gulen cannot effect this war yet. Don't hatch the egg before it's a chick
    • It's spying not just on your enemies but the enemies of your friends
    • This is Steve Feinberg (Dyncorp) taking all the things that McCabe has done in the last 20 yrs and commercializing it--making it McDonalds
    • If the Gov used to do surveillance against the Soviet Union, now they are surveilling the current sitting US President
    • But if you are a private company, a fortune 500 company, you just go through your fusion center and the Muslim Brotherhood will do your wiretaps and your hacking
    • That's why the need for TOP SECRET access and WH VISAs for foreign nationals
    • And they get the hacking tools from the CIA as well
    • We're going to be going to Montreal and talking about AgroMarketing.
    • This rice thing is going to be an interesting thing, because not only are those Basmati rice good for smuggling heroin or cocaine
    • BUt you can also dope the rice, with a virus; try all kinds of different drugs with rice as a vector in that whole supply chain
    • The food chain as a vector for drugs
    • Anything that has to be cleared quickly through customs [is why fruit works so well for smuggling]
    • We're going to be looking at the bio-side of the Nanoset technology
    • Imran Awan used the Nanoset technology to spy on the enemies of the Clintons
  • [Day 157 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 1 - YouTube]
    • @DanScavino @RT_com @RTUKNEWS
    • The big news is Chuck Grassley--the person who heads the Judiciary Committee in the Senate--has sent a letter to the FBI saying, "Is McCabe running the Trump investigation, and if that's true and he didn't declare the 675k then that may be a conflict-of-interest".
    • Omar Awan is not mentioned often. He went with an immigration lawyer to the WH to get--I believe--diplomatic VISA
    • Diplomatic VISAs give you special powers that allow you to send diplomatic pouches sealed and unopened back and forth to the country of origin
    • That power was expanded to diplomatic suitcases.
    • Then they said we don't want diplomats to pay taxes on furniture, so they allowed large freight; and diplomats started shipping cars
    • Then they started shipping food with diplomatic clearance, such as wine, so they don't have to pay taxes on it
    • I want to know if Pakistan has gotten diplomatic clearance on the PK Mangoes shipped to Chicago--something for researchers to work on
    • Here is @ChuckGrassley's letter
    • My question for Chuck is: "If McAuliffe Bribe of 675k Makes McCabe Recuse, What about Hillary, Huma, And Awan Server Cases?"
    • Wouldn't he want to write the same letter, but take out the word Trump put the word Hillary in; take the word Hillary and put the word Huma and take out the word Huma and put in the word Awan brothers?
    • If that 675k is a conflict of interests for Trump, wouldn't it also be a conflict of interest for Huma, Hillary, and Awans?
    • Awan brothers OEP for overseas employment
  • [Day 157 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 2 - YouTube]
    • Sorry about the pointer but people are asking me to use a pointer
    • The Awans not only imprisoned their stepmother and tapped her phone, they also threatened her relatives overseas.[]
    • There is a 2nd woman who is PK and Muslim and acting as the stepmother's caretaker and translator
    • How it came out in Daily Caller is typical MSM spin: *"House Democrat Dismisses Muslim Woman's Charge Against Muslim Staffer, Cites Islamophobia"
    • It has nothing to do with Muslim. It's 2 PK women, it's a stepmother who say that 3 PK stepsons threaten to kidnap and kill relatives in PK to change the inheritance to them, so they can access the money {{ that is }} in PK.
    • I believe the 3 Awan brothers are part of a cohort of ISI that were brought in some time around 2010
    • Here is Mr. Mango Mission, Husain Haqqani -- I don't know, can't count how many times he said 'mango mission' in 2010-2011 {{ in Hillary's emails via either cc in Podesta email threads or in HRC email leaks; both via Wikileaks--do your own research @ wikileaks.org to verify or you can take Georges and my word (i verified) }}
    • Here's Haqqani saying oh he wants special diplomatic powers to have immunity and review for 36 known CIA agents in PK[]
    • What normally happens when you run a mission like this "operation mango mission" let's call it, they (PK) trade 36 agents to go in the US to run both ends of the operation. The reason why you use foreign agents in the other country, it's so you don't have any qualms about killing anyone
    • Let's say you got a car dealer and you're trading cars for drugs. Or using car dealerships as the front company. People come in to buy a 60k car, but they don't actually ever get a title. They just get 60k worth of drugs. But you could say, 'oh yeah I made a little scribble here. I sold a mercedes. I made a little note.' You keep bad records {{ which never matter because you only have to answer to the court and the IRS and if you work for CIA then you just wave the jedi do whatever you want 'national security' magick---these aren't the 'awans' you're looking for }}
    • 2 years of meetings to get these PK mangos into the US
    • Gradually the House Reps are admitting, 'yeah I guess they did have access to TOP SECRET intel'
    • Imran's carrying Wasserman-Shultz's Ipad and had the password. It's not with her and he has the password. Some are saying 'maybe there was an intimate relationship there'.
    • Imran is walking around with her Ipad and she's nowhere to be found. She's not watching what he's doing
    • Greg Meeks now also has said, 'yes Hina Alvi had access to his information" Again all 20 of the people that were burglarized will come forward and say 'oh yeah btw he did have access'. Because the emails are going to come out and it will look like a coverup if they say they didn't have access.
    • 36 Awan brothers is the PK 111 -- Look at the video they made. So much evidence it's the 111 being used by the CIA in coups... it's comical.
    • The other side of Operation Mango Mission is going to be this Awan Pharma
    • There's just too many companies for just one family of 6 (5 + the MD)
    • You don't need 5 car companies in one family to rent cars. Even if you did, you'd have awan bros car rental with 5 locations maybe. But why 5 for 16 months and dissolving? Why the murder of the car dealer when one of the guys is in your company as a registered agent? Why are we doing that if there isn't something nefarious going on.
    • Again the Democrats have to come forward now and say the Awans had TOP SECRET access because it's in the server logs.
    • If I can place the Imran Awan at Starbucks accessing a whole bunch of emails on these server logs.
    • Even if you destroy the Ipad, I've got it on the server logs and the server backups
    • And you were sitting in the Congress voting on that day, or sitting on the emerging threat subcommittee listening to the Yemen raid being planned.
    • That shows your device is in the hands of someone else, it's just that simple {{ Dems: YOU DUN GOOF'D }}
    • I expect all the Dems to come forward and admit. I think they know that we have the GPS information now.
    • Again New Dawn Corporation 2001 I think is going to be the big funnel point for most of the money going back and forth. I think this is going to be the channel for the banks.
    • Nanoset technologies is going to {{ be the backdoor for them to continue access; which were revealed in the cisco router zeroday revealed by VAULT7 }}
    • No one person or one family needs this many companies. This is obviously more like a 30-40 person operation. The Awan brothers are just the top of it.
    • You're going to have a ratline running from Detroit, re gas up at Pittsburg and then go to Johns Hopkins for your organ donor
  • [Day 158 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 4 - YouTube]
    • George is at the advanced design and manufacturing show in Cleveland
    • Have to do the reporting while working--gotta pay the bills. I don't accept any donations or advertising but I do let people repurpose my work.
    • Sorry for things being disjointed, I attack different pieces of the story as I go in business
    • When you go into the organ harvesting business, which started with Hillary and Albreight in Kosovo in 1999
    • You need to have trained doctors. Just like the mercs were trained in Kosovo in Albanian--albanian kosovars were trained to go into Serbia
    • You have to have trained doctors to come in to do the organ harvesting on the serbian prisoners--gotta have someone spread the ribs, another pull out the heart; and a live donor on the next table to affect the transplant
    • Cleveland Clinic in Abu Dhabi and Mayo Clinic in Dubai are the two key training centers. It looks like they came here to be trained as well as Johns Hopskins
    • These leads have to be tracked down one-by-one, on a shoestring
    • Facebook posts this morning were meant to take the place of my proof-of-life videos talking about this guy Javed--he's got a lot of ties to Isis, ties to Gulen all the way back to the original 1979 drug line with Amjad Awan
    • It's narcoterrorism, using the narcotic money to do all kinds of infiltration: profs in college, medical industry, police, intelligence and politics (awan brothers)
    • I have to do it bit by bit because I'm not a professional journalist
    • {{ You're better than 99% George. Trust facts history and context are more important than whatever it is CNN is doing right now. }}
  • [Day 158 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 5 - YouTube]
    • George is at the Cleveland Clinic the number 2 hospital in the US according to the signs posted around here
    • Euclid Avenue Millionaires row, where George grew up, went by Mt Sinai where he was born at
    • Unfortunately my contact got scared, and I can't give away when I'm going to be there
    • George realizes people can't follow along, so he plans to do videos and the do a summary at the end of the day--if you want to follow along and make comments you can do it on the other videos; but he plans on directing people to a summary video at the end of the day
    • {{ Please don't delete the daily videos at the end of the day, if that's what you're planning George...I can't keep up every day but I like to go back and do a focus transcription. If you must, that's fine I'll figure out a way to autodownload them from my RSS newsreader as they come in, or a cron job to snatch latest from youtube via youtube-dl }}
    • Thanks everybody, Thought I had a lead, still think I'm on the right track with the Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic as the two key places that are doing the training then it was moved over to UAE and we'll go there tomorrow
  • [Day 158 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 6 Summary - YouTube
    • I'll do a summary at the end or beginning of the day if you don't want to follow the short videos throughout the day
    • Tim Black show (search /truthleaks or youtube for 'tim black george webb')
    • I believe Hillary {{ still }} has several contacts to the intelligence community that I'll show today
    • ISI connections
    • I wanted to say why I was in the Cleveland Clinic today, why I'll be at the Mayo Clinic--Jacksonville Fla; which have representations in the UAE
    • Before the NATO conflict in Kosovo, we had the drug trafficking in the Vietnam war; then we got into child trafficking with Iran-Contra with Central and South America; But here in E Europe we took a turn for the worst with the organ harvesting
    • It turns out organ harvesting is more profitable than drug dealing, and even child trafficking, because the technology for transplants has improved {{ so there's a greater market for it now }}
    • I'm not making this up with the Turkish doctors (organ harvesting) in the Gulen Movement -- Sonmez was finally apprehended in 2014 but his organ harvesting goes all the way back to the infamous Yellow House in Albania, back to 2002, it actually started in 1999. Not only was he doing liver and kidney transplants from 1999-2008; his specialty was kidney transplants, he did 10,000. And he never asked where the kidneys were coming from.
    • This was Hillary's cadre of people with Hillary as Shadow Sec of State, Madeleine Abreight and Chris the ambassador to Turkey who is currently the president of the Univ. Of Denver. {{ Ambassador Christopher Robert Hill, now pres of Korbel School }}
    • This is going to be just one of many Turkish doctors that were brought over to Albania.
    • These Albanian Kosovars were brought in from Pakistan originally. They were the leftovers after the fall of the Soviet Union. They were brought into the Bosnian conflict as well.
    • The radical jihadists, the Mujahadeen came in. They weren't doing organ harvesting in 1992 in Bosnia.
    • But the organ harvesting started--and this is not me saying it but the UN--in 1999. And here is the conviction (Yusuf Sonmez)
    • The other thing I want to talk about is these ISI types
    • Hillary received 400,000 from Tahir Javed, the largest contribution from last year.
    • Rice is a huge cover for drug operations
    • Javed ran a series of convenience stores, corner stores turned EBT cards into money and drugs and wired profits to Yemen
    • 17 people were arrested in Alabama but they were all Tahir Javed's convenience stores, he's running this Alabama operation in every state in the US
    • This is THE Biggest Drug lord in the US. He's Pakistani name's Javed. Many different Russian and International Intelligence reports link him to ISI. The Awans are working for Javed here in the US.
    • Again, the story I broke tonight on Tim Black's show is the NGA. There's 2 whistleblowers for Nunes. Both of them will break this story for NGA. NGA will be collecting geospatial information from low hanging satellites, helicopters, planes, outer space satellites.
    • In the same way that NSA is tracking all your communications, the NGA in Springfield VA will be tracking all of your movements; combining the two is very powerful combination
    • This is not an anti-Pakistani or anti-Muslim thing, but again: "Two PK women say Three PK stepsons threatened to kidnap Relatives in PK to Change Inheritance to Them"
    • "Husain Haqqani given special powers so he could renew visa for 36 known CIA agents, new leaked documents reveal"
    • Yes Jackie Speier you're going to have many witnesses--Tom Graves among all people at the House--asking for TOP SECRET clearance {{ For the Awans }}. So there's no reason denying it any more.
    • There are already people coming forward to Devin Nunes and the WH Council and Dan Scavino and so forth, deposing themselves in the burglaries. So be the last one holding the bag if you want. But: it's coming.
    • {{ McCabe is still stonewalling }}
  • [Day 159 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 1 - YouTube
    • Going to promote Javed to the home scree here
    • I didn't randomly pick him out. And just say, oh here's a billionaire that gave Hillary 400k in a small town and was the largest contributer of the campaign last year.
    • I don't go just by motive, means and opportunity, but also I go by history and by method. My criteria I think is bigger than most prosecutors' criteria.
    • I limit all the suspects down to people who have experience dealing druglines to PK. There haven't been many people involved in BCCI with Marc Rich and Iran Contra and Mena Airport. That immediately limits the suspect list down. I admit there could be other people involved in ISI and PK but again History here is the first limiting factor
    • Second limiting factor is current crimes: this is method and opportunity. Awan Brotherhood recap and 31 House Dems they worked for. This isn't a secret, this isn't like the Russian thing where there are no details.
    • Again I look for current crimes. I look for things in the conspirator's own hand: radical jihad, guns at lahore shipping points, and other intelligence agencies calling them criminals
    • The Tim Black interview I did last night was taken down twice, so if everyone could retweet that it would be great
    • Awan 111, pharma biz, gun porn; companies being taken down 16 mo apart
    • It's only after that I'm looking at criminals that are involved in ISI activities that are involved in money laundering companies. Then and only then do I get to Javed selling rice in a remote TX town, and he has enough money to buy a hospital system, and rename it Riceland, starts buying imaging companies.
    • Here he is with 17 different convenience stores in Alabama, laundering money via EBT cards, into cash to sell drugs, wiring profit to Yemen
    • Again, I've got the Awan brothers buying rice, I've got Tahir Javed selling rice, he's got 159 different companies; it's going to be one of those companies selling to the Awans. And 6 people showed up when Hillary showed up in Beaumont {{ To clarify (I think) GW is saying that Hillary's 400k speech to 6 people was Tahir paying Hillary a protection fee so he can continue his drugdealing. She's a gangster, a queenpin }}

At someone's request. If anyone has anything to add, it is welcome. Enjoy:
JA:In Buenos Aires?
JA:Ok, We'll try and do this, um this is the uhh the first time that I have spoken to people outside the Embassy since my internet was cut off. It's a bit unusual for me to do an interview by telephone but I like a challenge so we're going to try and do it.
JA:First of all um thank you to the Computer Workers' Union who put this event together and organized it, I see that quite a lot of Universities involved in Argentina, uh it's interesting to see people here, quite nice actually, the support for the Free Software movement and the ideals that I have fought for a long time, by the government of Argentina and other institutions within Argentina.
Panel: Mr Julian Give us just a minute to explain to the Public here what is happening, exactly. Could you give us a minute?
JA:Ok Well
Panel: Thanks
JA:First of all let me, let me just introduce myself. Uh My name is Julian Assange I am the editor, founder and publisher uh of Wikileaks. I have uh a technical training, I taught myself programming when I was 13, I became a computer hacker, explorer of the world when I was quite young, uh, from Australia. And developed a lot of free software and different projects, became a systems administrator, started my own internet service in Australia, and Writing cryptography programs to protect people and their privacy from spying, written books about that type of thing and studied the NSA and eventually theoretical physics and decided that actually I wanted to try and bring about more education and justice in the world and the easiest way so .....
Panel: Bueno, --- etc
JA:(Static) Ok Uhh I'm instructed ... programmers behind it and the people and instutions ... courageous people uh ... and alot of conflict, we publish on average 1 million secret docs per year for the last 10 years and of that time, 6 years I've been detained without charge here in the UK and for 4 years in this embassy, the embassy in london where ecuador gave me asylum the idea being to then go to ecuador but the embassy was then surrounded by police--
Panel: Police--
JA: -- Under siege by the british of the embassy for the last 4 years, by that they say the've spent over $20m in spying equipment, that is outside the embassy, plainclothes police and so on.
JA: now just recently we started our series on the us election which is extremely interesting about how the power networks in DC operates particularly around HRC who has been there many many years because she was the wife of bill clinton and the lobbyists and campaigners that work for her like John Podesta. So our first big leak in that series was the DNC leaks, as a result of that publishing in JUly the top 5 officials of the Democratic Party resigned including its president Debbie Wasserman Schultz
JA: Uh the Democratic Primary election between HRC and Bernie Sanders principally had been rigged in favor of HRC by the committee that runs the US Democratic party in many different wasy including pushing out fake stories that Bernie Sanders supporters were trying to organize violence, making sure more of the money went to HRC and so on.
JA: When we released those 20k emails we did it in a way that we've become famous for which is to make a customized search engine to search them essentially quite hard to make a search engine to display and search through email because there's so many broken mail standards in mail programs so it's quite a lot of work and it encouraged all the people in the US and some outside the US who were interested in the election to sort through them. This punched a hole in the media censorship that exists in the US by the top TV networks and about 8 of the 9 major publications in the US are biased in favor of HRC.
JA: So in response there was many attacks and the US DC establishment which believe HRC will be the winner of the election tried to find different wasy to distract from our publication. They first of all tried to say that we supported Donald Trump because we were criticizing HRC. Then they tried to say that actually we were secretly working with RUssia to publish this material which was criticizing her and thsi was some kind of cyber warfare against the US.
JA: What I've heard from people with experience with these sort of attacks is the best way to deal with it is to never flinch, you neve rblink .You just keep on publishing because every day you publish is another day you have the initiave in the conflict.
JA: So we continued on publishing the emails of Hillary Clintons uh chief campaign manager which are even more politically interesting than the emails of the DNC. I have been exploring what was the connection between HRC and her campaign manager and the sale of 20% of all US uranium to RUssia through a company in the US called JEwel Limited and that was very interesting that we showed that uh clintons campaign manager had been lyhing about his investments in this Nuclear energy company and he's very closely connected with a big Canadian mining magnate and that he had 75,000 shares in this company and that he moved it into another company secretly controlled by his daughter and so on but much more important was that in the investigation we managed to get ahold of more than 50K emails related to HRC's chief campaign manager John Podesta.
JA: So this time we started a different strategy which was to write an algorithm called a Stochastic Terminator which is designed to be unpredictable and to adjust how much it publishes and what it selects based upon what we as human beings suggest to it but also based upon what it reads in the news. So it selects the emails to be published and publishes them each day and we started doing that on the 7th of October
JA: And this really whipped up a crazed hornets nest atmosphere in the HRC campaign and in all the establishment that are backing her. Now we always had the analysis that HRC would win for sure, we've had that analysis from more than 12 months ago but she has pooled around her every single establishment in the US. The inteliigence agencies, the neoconservatives that started the Iraq war, the weapons manufacturers, the big banks, invenstment companies like Goldman Sachs, most of the middle class and most of the media, and so, now we have all these people in these establishments trying to defend HRC from being exposed as having many corrupt relationships.
JA: So they started attacking our servers with DOS attacks, and attempted hacking attacks. There was a, there IS an amazing ongoing campaign where fake documents were put in the US and the British courts to accuse me of both being a Russian spy and a pedophile, a molester of children.
JA: You can look up that amazing story that we tracked down about how this hoax was made in the US and British courts to call me a Russian spy and a pedophile, by a front company in the US in Texas called Todd And Claire.
JA: But that wasn't enough so the pressure started to increase and started to pressure Ecuador, which some of the opposition parties in Ecuador were sympathetic to, perhaps because of their relationships with the US, and pressure, statements made to Ecuador at the political level and the intelligence level that I needed to be stopped or that there would be consequences.
JA: But um, Wikileaks is a global publisher, publishes 1m documents a year. We publish from France, Germany, several, Norway, Holland, several other countries and we have most of our lawyers and staff in the EU and the US. We don't publish from Ecuador, no particular reason, just the bandwidth is cheaper and the servers are cheaper than in Ecuador.
JA: So the US and Hillary, the US Government in the form of John Kerry, the Secretary of State, some other US officials and the HRC campaign, kept putting forth propaganda to say that our publications revealing various forms of corruption and scandal within HRC's network was in fact interference in the US electoral process.
JA: But this isn't interference in the electoral process, this is the DEFINITION of the electoral process. It is for media organizations and in fact everyone to publish the truth and their opinions about what is occurring.
JA: There cannot be a free and informed election unless we are free to inform.
JA: So you basically have the Obama administration taking control of parts of the goverment and using the government to try and shut down critical true information being revealed and analyzed by Wikileaks, uh, being read by the American population.
JA: So now let's look at it fro Ecuadorian point of view. While I disagree that they didn't give me any notice about what was occuring, I did not like the, how it was done, I am very sympathetic to the concern that the Ecuadorian state has.
JA: Ecuador, like most states that are not empires, has a policy of non intervention in the interior processes, including elections, of other states
JA: Now, it makes perfect strategic sense why small states should have such a policy, because if they do not have such a policy, larger states can use that as the excuse to intervene in their affairs or their elections.
JA: So here we have a dilemna on one hand Wikileaks is a publisher that doesn't publish from Ecuador. And it is a publisher, its duty and obligation is to publish everything and anything that's true that it can get its hands on about a very important election that's occuring right now in the US.
JA: On the other hand the TV networks in the US with the exception of Fox are controlled by clinton supporters and the US intelligence establishment which is also aligned to Clinton pushing statements before the public that Wikileaks publishing about the US elections is interference in the US elections which is false but nonetheless it is a claim that is being made very loudly in the US.
JA: And this claim, although false, could be used to legitimize the US interfering in Ecuador's election next year.
JA: Now of course we ACTUALLY publish from Germany, France, Holland, Norway and so on, the US has not as far as we're aware tried to apply significant country, pressure to those countries. But, I am a symbol as the ideological leader of Wikileaks, and that symbol is being protected as a political refugee by the state of Ecuador. So they think that they can go after the symbol and they think they can bully, or try to bully Ecuador because it is a state in Latin American that's not the size of Brazil.
JA: So we end up with a strategic position for Ecuador that the internet at the embassy is shut off until the end of the election so that Ecuador's policy of non-intervention cannot be mis-interpreted by actors in the US or even domestically in Ecuador
JA: Of course I don't agree with it but I understand it.
JA: And Ecuador has been strong, in otherwise in the first place and also continuing to resist quite strong pressure from the UK, US, and Sweden to cast me out into the streets to be arrested.
JA: And I just compare um what the government's position is, about half the opposition party's that's becoming the Ecuadorian legislation next year in February saying that they also would protect my asylum but about another half don't (Static) saying they would hand me over to be arrested despite the United Nations in February this year making a formal finding that i am legally correct in that I am being illegally detained by the UK
JA: But Wikileaks is a, you know you can ask what type of dog is a different company or an organization, and Wikileaks is one of these fighting dogs, that has a lot of energy, that runs around and loves to fight, does nothing more than fight. So when my internet was cut off of course we had long ago made contingency plans for exactly this situation so despite bombs raining down on us from statements from high officials, media and so on this is exactly the sort of situation we enjoy and there was not even a 1 day pause in publishing the next day even though I was cut off from my team.
(Questions translated by yksinm)
Question 1: we will make questions that we receive via twitter, first lets give julian an applause for being able to come here even in dificult conditions...
JA: Thank you very very much
Panel: I don't know if the translator will make the questions to Julian or if Julian is listening to us phonetically(?)...
Question 2: en relacion al contenido de los emails de hillary clinton revelados por assange, si es posible que se pueda deducir el pensamiento de la candidata democratica hacia latinoamerica en su conjunto y en particular hacia la argentina/ relating to the hillary clintons email content, is it posible that we can deduct the thinking of the candidate towards latinoamerica and in particular to argentina?
JA: Uh as I said that it has long been our analysis that HRC will win the election because she has all the establishment on her side and we can see that in terms of polling that someone like Donald Trump has a great many problems I'm sure you're all aware of it but if he managed to get up near the 48-50% level, the polling, which he has just on two occasions crossed on different polls, united them immediately those big media networks and their funders get together and smash him back down. So I don't think there's any, any chance of Donald Trump winning the election. That would probaby be bad inside the US, it would probably be good outside the US, but even with the amazing material that we are publishing and will continue to publish. Because even though that we publish it and there's a lot of people on the internet reading it directly, that most of the media organizations in the US are very strongly aligned with HRC, Um for 2 reasons really a lot of them are owned by big businesses which are owned by big banks, which like HRC. And the other is a class reason, most journalists and media workers are very middle class and Donald Trump represents in their mind "white trash" and so to be, doing anything that looks like it supports Donald Trump, looks like it supports the trash, as it means to those rivals that they have within their class, that they are white trash and lowers their social status, which is a very dangerous thing to do in an institution, have your social status lowered, because someone else might get your job or the job you want to have within the institution. So there's a lot of conformity and a lot of fear about criticizing HRC in any way at all, so it reduces the impact of even very significant material that is released. But what is the impact for Latin America, why, I think it is extremely positive, because I think that this is the first time in US electoral history that we can see the power structure going into the new presidency so the various alliances and forces and influences of HRC and her team we are exposing day by day. And so that's going to shift understanding of the phenomenon that then everyone has to deal with, inside the US and out and it becomes more predictable and also the worst excesses of it are easier to contain.
Question 3 & 4: en estos momentos en argentina se esta discutiendo el voto electronico, una forma electoral donde hay un gran componente de tecnologia y eso se esta trasladando al voto electronico. hay empresas que estan involucradas que controlan y manejan los datos y por otro lado tambien esta el tema del facebook work. que es el facebook work para quienes no lo saben es la utilizacion de las herramientas de facebook en el estado administrada por supuesto bajo las leyes norteamericanas por que facebook no firma un contrato con el estado argentino con un desarrollo propietario, que opina sobre los dos temas, puntualmente, del voto electronico, si sirve si no sirve. cual es la opinion de el al respecto y del facebook artworks?/(q3) in this moment in argentina we are discusing electronic voting, an electoral process where there is a big amount of technology and there is companies involved that have acces and control data (q4)on the other hand there is the facebook work, what is facebook work? is the utilization of facebook tools by the state(of argentina) under US laws because facebook does not sign a contract with argentinian state.
JA: As a security expert or former security expert and someone who's had to continue to understand that in order to protect Wikileaks and our sources, I think electronic voting is completely crazy. The electronic aspect of it, even if there is cryptography, maybe especially if there's cryptography makes it so complex that individual peoples and communities can't assess whether it's doing what it says that it's doing. So it's become easy to manipulate. Now even if there are rules concerning sophisticated audits, external auditors, auditing that's being done, we all know the reality that once those rules are set up for auditors, gradually they are defunded or the auditors get lazy, and gradually they start to disappear and those people who want to manipulate systems understand the ability and limitations of the auditors more and more as time goes by. So I think electronic voting is completely crazy for national elections. Another thing that (static) when there's REAL power involved, I think this is mad.
JA: On the second part of that question about overseas processing data in the US and elsewhere, obviously information in, jurisdiction is acceptable to US authorities, Now with that said it might even be more accessible if it's not in US jurisdiction because they hack it and steal it anyway. So this issue of the breakdown in areas of jurisdiction or areas of (servility?) a much broader issue, which is causing the disappearance of effective borders, a blending in or a merging in of different states with each other. There's a lot of benefits to that, on the other hand it seems quite likely that the largest most powerful electronic state like the US, maybe like China in a few years, will be able to hold and gather together critically important functions of other countries , and then will be able to squeeze these functions, both in terms of data from them but possibly more importantly in terms of demanding fees, court cases, or simply cutting off access.
Question 5: bueno sabemos ya que nos estamos quedando sin tiempo, estamos en los plazos acordados para ir terminando quisiera julian si nos podrias dar un mensaje a los trabajadores informaticos a los trabajadores de las tecnologias y cual es la sugerencia que nos... que nos.. que opina el y nos pueda trasmiti we are runing out of time so we would like if julian could give us a message, opinion and sugestion for the informatic workers.
JA: Ok. The power structures of the whole world, are becoming computerized, that shouldn't be any surprise to anyone in this room. And therefore we, as technological workers, can have a unique ability to shape the power to become and not simply be useful idiots, which is how politicians in general and company executives think of most technical workers. Rather the intelligent, skilled technicians that understand not just about our technical labors but understand how our technical labors interface and facilitate the evolving structure of international civilization and of course within our country. Now if it's to establish our own rules and our own culture, in say the Free Software community, have produced really quite important advances. But at the same time, some of those advances like Free software are also being treated as a common and being gobbled up by ever larger corporations like Google or ever more abusive mega government instituions like the NSA which uses Linux and free software all over the place. It's nothing to be proud of that the fruits of our mind is being used in that way. Rather it's something to be ashamed of that the fruits of our mind can be taken and repurposed in a way to make the world we live in less free and less humane. So Wikileaks is the vision I had for using my technical skills to do something about some of these problems but there's many other ways in which one can do it. I think it's important is to kind of look at what is happening in the world as the rest of the world's power structures coming into our domain and try, thereby exercise some influence over the situation rather than seeing our domain as something that is being gobbled up by the existing power structures.
Question 6: bueno sabemos que el tiempo convenido con mr assange esta expirado pero es tanto el volumen de preguntas que nos han llegado a travez de los hashtags habilitados al efecto que nos atrevemos a pedirle una ultima pregunta muy especial, puedes trasladarle por favor la consulta. julian:ok. translator:si si adelante. ok en ese caso es la siguiente: desde ecuador el amigo sebastian naver nos pregunta, cuando vamos a tener wikileaks sobre los diarios como la nacion o clarin fuertemente vinculados a la politica y la dictadura de nuestro pais/ we ran out of time but we got so many questions that we dare to ask you answer one last special question. our friend from equador asks when will be the time for wikileaks to be asociated with newspapers like "la nacion" or "clarin" that are strongly linked to the politics and dictatorship of out country.
JA: Hm. That is a very important question. One of the major power elements in society, one which shapes our thinking about the problems that we have, and the solutions to our problems can only be as good as the clarity of our thinking, is of course the media, the mass media. And we're also shifting into control from social, the way social media and internet publishing has broken through a lot of the censorship on behalf of various establishments that the mainstream media has been performing. At the same time there is consolidation in the owners of social media that is leading to various forms of censorship. There is a great book that's been published in Argentina, it's definitely in Spanish, called Wiki Media Leaks, and that is an analysis of the Latin American media, looking at the cables that Wikileaks published showing the relationships between the US State Department and the various media oligarchs in Latin America. Now why did a separate book have to be published on that? Well because obviously the Clarin Group was not reporting about the Clarin Group. And there also exists a type of truce between the different media owners and even amongst journalists not to report critical information about these groups or individuals that you would think would be rivals but they're too scared to get in a media war with each other so they tend to censor news that is critical of the media. Now in the, one of the things most remarked on by our recent publications about the DNC and HRC's campaign is how many unethical journalists were exposed, Journalists who were checking in to make sure that Hillary Clinton was, the campaign manager, was proving to throw private parties with 65 different journalists where they didn't report anything that happened at the parties, HRC or campaign manager John Podesta cooking together and so on. But you're right, the full archives of the NYT or Clarin Group or CNN would make a very big difference to peoples opinions and help them understand those power networks. We did it for the Sony corporation, while the Sony corporation is not a news organization it is a media organization. And that showed very interesting things, for example that Sony tried to do a deal with UK prime minister david Cameraon, at the time the scottish referendum, in 2014, to not air a TV series which was pro-Scottish until after the referendum. They had met with DAvid Cameraon that was their stratgegy going into the meeting, they wanted to do that, and what could they get from cameron, well they could get some tax provisions from the prime minister in exchange for killing off this Tv series about scotland which would increase scottish nationalism. So that's the games that are played in all the big media groups.

2016.05.07 23:30 Childish_BabeRuth I went through all of the websites, Facebook pages and candidate statements of the 34 US Senate candidates on the California ballot. Here are the highlights.

"I believe tax payer's money should be spent only on restoring Earth growing marijuana everywhere." -Pamela Elizondo, Green
"We need to get rid of the federal reserve because it has made our money worst. Bring all the troops home and relocate them to the boarders (sic)." - Jerry J. Laws, Republican
Entire website: http://www.wellsark.com -Ling Ling Shi, Independent
"Merritt supports Senator Feinstein's boarder security fence" -Paul Merritt, Independent (Each word costs $25 dollars to put in the voter guide and you can't bother to spell border)
"Through my national and international research and political activism, I identified "mind control slavery" by satellite energy technology weapons and social engineering programs that have been in continual development for the past 50 years and facilitated their "declassification"." - Massie Munroe, Democratic
From Facebook page "Activities: CIA, IBDBAJM, Olympic Team USA, United States Supreme Court Active Duty, Wall Street." - President Cristina Grappo, Democratic
"Dear Citizen: Despite any and all objections it can be easily demonstrated that one of the goals of the homosexual movement is to normalize child molestation; i.e; to make it a everyday occurrence which has not only no criminal penalties attached but is actually celebrated, endorsed, encouraged, and cultivated." - Don J. Grundmann, Independent
"our economy is so poor that almost 23% of our people are unemployed" -Herbert G. Peters, Democratic
"01100101" -Jason Hanania, Independent
"ISIS. Immigration reform. The NSA. Gun control. The end of the two-party system as we know it. What do all of these terrifying issues for the 2016 election have in common? None of them matter because we’re all going to die." - Mike Beitiks, Independent
"There is a new name now for irresponsible behavior that leads to millions of humans now unwilling to take care of themselves. YOLO…or You Only Live Once." - Jason Kraus, Independent
"Currently we live in Menlo Park with my 6 year-old daughter Rainbow and my 2 year-old son Remington." -George C. Yang, Republican
"Public servant Phil Wyman is a lifelong California." -Phil Wyman, Republican
"American's are losing a desperate struggle against a fierce and tyrannical legal/political/economic RIP CURRENT that has harmed public faith and morale, weakened our economy, compromised our national security and more. This MASSIVE RIP CURRENT is dragging us out and away from our near shore waves of happiness. This dastardly rip current is whisking American families out into the deep cold sharky ocean far away from the safety, warmth and joy of our beloved beaches of hope and contentment. That's not good my friend's! No bueno Amigos!" -Gar Myers, Independent
"Throughout man’s history, we have been engaged (and still are) in a “cosmic battle” of good versus evil. I believe in a sentient being named “Satan” who once was called “Lucifer.” When individuals and entities choose to overcome evil with good, Satan is defeated." - Tim Gildersleeve, Independent
