  1. Braniac used a special lens (like the mirrors that you see in a fun house). You know the one's I'm talking about. One mirror makes you look skinny and one makes you look fat. But, not like in that 60's White Room song. That was all about the impact of psychedelic drugs on perception. Obviously, Braniac would have had difficulty getting such a drug evenly distributed and then the unintended consequences of everybody not having the same hallucination would be chaotic. Of course, if he could have simply moved Kandor farther away, he could have created a similar illusion of shrinkage. I'll be starting a separate thread about how the use of the term "fun house" is at best a misnomer and more likely a violation of the truth in advertising statute.
  2. June 19, 2021 That high-level Chinese defector's 'embarrassing and damaging information about our intelligence community' By Andrea Widburg We already knew that a man with a high-level position in the Chinese Communist Party had defected to America. We also knew that the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) refused to let the other intelligence agencies in on the secret because it was immediately apparent that our government is riddled with Chinese spies, agents, true believers, and people on the payroll. Now, though, we know who the spy is and the broad outlines of the information he provided — and it's a lot worse than you thought. As before, Jennifer Van Laar — who I believe first reported about the defector's existence — has the most comprehensive information. For the deep dive, go to RedState; for the short(ish) summary, stick with me. The defector's name is Dong Jingwei, and he's the vice minister of state security. He knows where all the bodies are buried, both in China and, I'm sorry to say, in America. According to Spy Talk, Dong "was responsible for the Ministry's counterintelligence efforts in China, i.e., spy-catching, since being promoted to vice minister in April 2018." Spy Talk also reports that China demanded Dong's return, but Blinken said no. Interestingly, the weak, woke Blinken said "no" not as a matter of principle. Instead, he took a stand only because the DIA hadn't told the administration about Dong's existence. That tells you about how little the DIA trusts the Biden administration. According to Spy Talk, Dong's presence in the U.S. is a rumor. However, Van Laar seems very sure of her sources, who told her China possesses "embarrassing and damaging information about our intelligence community and government officials in the 'terabytes of data' he's provided to the DIA." Van Laar also shares information from a Washington Free Beacon report claiming that, when China realized that Trump was about to close travel from China, it sent hundreds of "students" back in January, much earlier than their planned return dates, to monitor events in America. These students (spies), summarizes Van Laar, "were charged with reporting back on public policy changes, economic response and damage, impacts on the healthcare system (equipment/hospital bed shortages, etc), supply chain impacts (including how long it took things like semiconductors from China to reach the United States), civil unrest, and more." And here, straight from Van Laar herself, is other information Dong brought with him that should have you simultaneously furiously angry and really terrified: Early pathogenic studies of what we know as COVID. China's models about what COVID would do to the U.S. and the world (which makes it sound as if COVID was a bioweapon, not an accident). Financial records about which organizations and governments funded COVID "and other biological warfare" research. The identity of U.S. citizens who gave intel to China. The names of Chinese spies working or attending universities in America. Financial records showing American businesspeople and officials who took money from China. (Note: At least as to the businesspeople, these may have been legitimate transactions. I don't know how they can have been for the officials.) U.S. government officials who met (knowingly or not) with Chinese and Russian spies. Details about the Chinese government getting into the CIA communications system, which led the Chinese to kill dozens of CIA assets in China. Hunter Biden's hard drive, which meant that the Chinese knew all about his porn and drug problems, his acting as a conduit for money to Joe, and his and Joe's corrupt financial dealings generally. News that at least a third of Chinese students on American campuses (who pay full retail, so they drive out American students) are Communist Party assets or the children of high-level communist officials in America under false names. There's every reason to believe that all this information is true. Says Van Laar, "DIA has high confidence in the veracity of Dong's claims." In a sane, just world, our government would act upon this information immediately. China would become a pariah nation, with immediate steps taken to shut down all possible trade with China; Chinese students would be returned to China; corrupt officials and politicians (regardless of party) would be fired and, if appropriate, indicted; and our intelligence agencies would be cleaned up or, if too corrupt, disbanded. The mainstream media, however, are currently keeping a tight lid on this story, and it's doubtful that the Biden administration will act — especially considering how compromised both Biden and his son are. We'll have to wait for the 2022 election for things to happen. If Republicans gain the majority in Congress, there should be some very interesting hearings. And if DeSantis becomes president in 2024, the indictments had better start rolling out. https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/06/that_high_level_chinese_defectors_embarrassing_and_damaging_information_about_our_intelligence_community_.html
  3. Obstinately Collecting Debris.
  4. WE stream Netflix, roku channel, Pluto TV and Prime nightly. We've got an antenna for a lot of local programming.
  5. In case you hadn't heard, the reason that the DIA is not turning this guy over to the CIA or the FBI is because both organizations 'are suspected' of having been infiltrated and compromised by the Chinese.
  6. Here's What the Chinese Defector Has Reportedly Given Us About COVID...But Also on Joe and Hunter Biden As the media laments being totally wrong about the COVID lab leak theory, more details are coming out about the Chinese defector who has been taken into US custody. The man alleges that he has knowledge about a slew of chinse bioweapons programs and COVID. He alleges that the current pandemic was caused by a lab leak, and that bats were the real cover-up story. The defector alleges that while the lab leak was an accident, it was allowed to spread. Our friends at RedState wrote about this first, but Jen Van Laar has a new development. The identity of the defector has been confirmed and he’s a high-ranking intelligence official with the People’s Republic of China: Matthew Brazil and Jeff Stein at Spy Talk reported on the “rumor,” and gave the name and background of the rumored defector: Chinese-language anti-communist media and Twitter are abuzz this week with rumors that a vice minister of State Security, Dong Jingwei (???) defected in mid-February, flying from Hong Kong to the United States with his daughter, Dong Yang. Dong is, or was, a longtime official in China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS), also known as the Guoanbu. His publicly available background indicates that he was responsible for the Ministry’s counterintelligence efforts in China, i.e., spy-catching, since being promoted to vice minister in April 2018. If the stories are true, Dong would be the highest-level defector in the history of the People’s Republic of China. RedState’s sources confirmed that the defector is, in fact, Dong, that he was in charge of counterintelligence efforts in China, and that he flew to the United States in mid-February, allegedly to visit his daughter at a university in California. When Dong landed in California he contacted DIA officials and told them about his plans to defect and the information he’d brought with him. Dong then “hid in plain sight” for about two weeks before disappearing into DIA custody. […] Based on conversations with sources familiar with the information Dong has already provided and its quantity and reliability, that’s simply not the case. Not only does Dong have detailed information about China’s special weapons systems, the Chinese military’s operation of the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the origins of SARS-CoV-2, and the Chinese government’s assets and sources within the United States; Dong has extremely embarrassing and damaging information about our intelligence community and government officials in the “terabytes of data” he’s provided to the DIA. […] In addition, Dong has provided DIA with the following information: Early pathogenic studies of the virus we now know as SARS-CoV-2 Models of predicted COVID-19 spread and damage to the US and the world Financial records detailing which exact organizations and governments funded the research on SARS-CoV-2 and other biological warfare research Names of US citizens who provide intel to China Names of Chinese spies working in the US or attending US universities Financial records showing US businessmen and public officials who’ve received money from the Chinese government Details of meetings US government officials had (perhaps unwittingly) with Chinese spies and members of Russia’s SVR How the Chinese government gained access to a CIA communications system, leading to the death of dozens of Chinese people who were working with the CIA Okay, so this goes well beyond COVID and bioweapons. It’s a window into the extensive and entrenched intelligence network China has established here. He knows the spies, who’s getting paid to be rats, and much else. The alleged studies showing the damage COVID can inflict on the world, specifically the United States only bolsters the lab leak theory. That it was intentional to curb China getting rolled in the socioeconomic arena. Trump had them on their heels, and this pandemic gave them breathing room. If China couldn't win, or succeed, then no one can. A totalitarian government that is conducting a high-tech genocide against the Uighur population is bound to do anything to accomplish their nefarious goals. Oh, and the Bidens are in this intelligence dump as well. As Jen noted, “Dong also has provided DIA with copies of the contents of the hard drive on Hunter Biden’s laptop, showing the information the Chinese government has about Hunter’s pornography problem and about his (and Joe’s) business dealings with Chinese entities.” Yeah, not only is the COVID lab leak theory looking more credible by the hour, but also Joe being compromised by China and for being a shady dealer with his son looks like it got corroborated. You know, the 2020 October surprise that everyone decided to ignore. There are no more mean tweets, just a president who might be a pawn of Beijing. Nothing to see here, says the liberal media. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2021/06/18/heres-what-the-chinese-defector-has-reportedly-given-us-about-covid-but-also-o-n2591167
  7. That's scary stuff. The smoke from the California wildfires got so bad in the Santa Clara valley last year that I picked up a couple of air purifiers. It was probably a futile gesture, but there were a few days where the sky was an eerie purple hue.
