Nina Jankowitz, better known as Stanky Janky, briefly the head of the Disinformation Governance Board, is now officially a registered foreign agent.

Jankowicz also became infamous for her enthusiasm for musical theater as a means of expressing her left-wing political ideas. She also referred to herself as the "Mary Poppins of disinformation" in a singsong TikTok post.

However, Jankowicz was herself a font of disinformation, spreading the notorious "Alfa Bank hoax" before the 2016 election, which falsely claimed that then-candidate Donald Trump had financial ties to a Russian bank.

She has now registered as a foreign representative under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), on behalf of the Centre for Information Resilience, a British organization devoted to countering disinformation online.


One critic of the group, which was only incorporated in 2020, noted its focus on censorship and wondered openly if it is "a British government cutout, conducting info-war operations at arm's length from the state."

The only "policy" objective that leftists are viscerally excited about is fascist oppression of other people's right to object to their fascism:

This is true of 100% of fake reporters in the new really fake news fields of "fact checking," "social media coverage," and "disinformation." Even in a general field of fake news, these guys stand out as really really fake news. They do no reporting. They do no interviews -- cancel that, they will send you a nasty DM demanding comment five minutes before the hit piece they've written on you goes to print. (Or a couple hours after, in the case of Taylor Lorenz.)

That's the extend of their "news gathering."

They're just Twitter partisans offering up the most repugnantly ignorant and tribalistic twitter hot takes, except instead of just pumping them out on Twitter, the "news" organizations put their Hot Twitter Takes right on television and call them "disinformation reporting."

Jonah Goldberg, who eagerly agreed with the "51 Intelligence officials" that the Hunter laptop was Russian disinformation, claiming that the story that it was turned over by a laptop repair shop owner was not credible, insists that this was just a bit of "skepticism" for which he owes no one any accountability:

jonahthedemocratshill.jpg

But note this wasn't just "sketicism;" in accordance with the wishes of their leftwing Democratic backers, The Dispatch embargoed mentions of the laptop and still have not, to my knowledge, offered a single substantive piece admitting the authenticity of it and the implications of that authenticity. As with Russia Collusion itself -- they're still pretending the lie is still the truth. They're not repeating the lie; they're just acting in perfect agreement with the lie, taking the lie to be the governing truth of the situation.

But yeah Fatboy you and your undulating waves of neckfat just showed a bit of healthy "skepticism."


Some guy named Simu Liu, who starred in one of those crappy Marvel movies everyone's already forgotten, took to the Twitterz Tuesday to attack legendary directors Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese as racist.

Liu is "clapping back" because Scorsese and Tarantino are not Marvel movie fans. Their lack of affection for superhero movies, in general, appears to be based on three solid reasons: 1) Scorsese and Tarantino are not 11 years old; 2) they believe superhero movies are not cinema but rather $250 million amusement park rides that say nothing about the human condition, and 3) superhero movies suck all the oxygen out of the theaters leaving no room for anything else.

Tarantino is such an anti-Asian racist he personally championed the films of John Woo and got John Woo the entire Western Period of his career, and then directed a long homage to Japanese karate/samurai flicks, as well as producing a kung-fu flick.


I mean, he was such a fan of Chinese police action movies that he shamelessly stole most of Reservoir Dogs from City on Fire, just like Elvis tributed black blues rock...

Wait, that's not the greatest argument. Well anyway, he does love Asian movies.

And feet.

He's not anti-Asian: He just hates boring, artless, soulless corporate pablum like Shiang-Chi.

Whether you like Tarantino or not, there's a personality and "voice" to his movies. You know a Tarantino movie when you see it.

Pop quiz:

Who directed Shiang Chi? Anybody? Anybody?

It's a trick question; Marvel movies nominally have a director but they're primarily directed by the Soulless Blob of the studio itself. If they feel like they've been constructed from answers to questions in a focus group where the participants were promised Oliver Garden coupons, that's because that's precisely how they were assembled.

The one bit of Marvel content -- we're beyond pretending these are movies or even TV shows; they're just filler to occupy the memory card of your DVR for a few weeks, and to occupy our brain for a few hours (or less) -- which had a definite authorial voice was She-Hulk, and that didn't work out too well, because that authorial voice was a dumb defensive incompetent c*nt.

From a couple of weeks ago: CNN says your pets must eat zee bugz.


Americans should consider purchasing smaller breeds of household pets and feeding them an "insect-based" diet to help curb their alleged influence on the climate, according to a CNN article that circulated on social media last week. The recommendation comes as activists have ramped up calls to normalize bugs and synthetic meat not only in pet diets but in human diets as well.

"Our four-legged friends don't drive gas-guzzling SUVs or use energy-sucking appliances, but that doesn't mean they don't have a climate impact," CNN suggested in its September article entitled "Our pets are part of the climate problem."


According to "researchers," CNN said, dogs and cats "play a significant role in the climate crisis."

The article, which generated backlash on social media last week after CNN posted a link to it on Twitter, suggested that it's not so much the pets themselves but their "meat-heavy diet" that "is the biggest contributor to their carbon pawprints."

Though told not to "​​panic," and that "[b]idding farewell to your best friends is not the answer," readers were advised to consider buying "smaller breeds or species" of pets "if you're aiming to minimize your impact on the planet," since a "Chihuahua's carbon pawprint will be much smaller than a Saint Bernard."

Moreover, while the piece notes that cats are carnivores whose diet shouldn't be stripped of meat, American dog owners are urged to consider swapping out their canines' chicken, turkey, or beef-based kibble for "new food developments," including "lab-grown meat" and "insect-based pet foods."

"Insect-based pet foods can be nutritionally complete and are starting to come onto the market around the world," Angela Frimberger, a veterinarian with Vets for Climate Action, told the outlet.

When we arrest Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Klaus Schwab and the rest of this crew, we'll make sure that they only serve Zee Bugz in their prisons.

I just want to vote for him sixteen times now. (I was already planning to vote for him for the customary "Democratic 8.")

The allegation is that DeSantis gave the go-ahead to force-feed the terrorist Ensure. He was attempting to kill himself through a hunger strike.

Feeding a terrorist so that he doesn't die is " " " torture. " " "

The funniest bit of inside baseball regarding Disney actors over the last few years involved two actors from the live action remake of Aladdin. The guy who played Aladdin was told to just sit back and wait for the offers to role in. Nothing rolled in. The guy who played the outrageous Swedish prince, a very minor side character, actively pitched a show based on his character to Disney brass.

The Swedish prince character is supposed to be getting a Disney+ show.

This was described as racism.

70 59 As far as I'm concerned, the MCU ended with the appropriately named Avengers: Endgame. It gave a very satisfying conclusion to the entire saga.

There's simply no point to watching anything in Phase 4 or whatever phase they are on.

With Black Friday deals going on right now, a bunch of MCU movies have been dirt cheap. I've been checking out the ones I've missed through the library, just to see if they'd be worth a buy at such reduced prices.

Nope. The best is probably Spider-Man: No Way Home, but it's also a giant mess that relies heavily on other movies for its emotional points. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is probably the most interesting because it's Raimi kind of bloody and with a shit ton of money, but it doesn't work overall. And then Thor: Love and Thunder is simply a dud (but pretty).

I haven't missed much, and I see no need to check out the others I've yet to see.

74 The allegation is that DeSantis gave the go-ahead to force-feed the terrorist Ensure. He was attempting to kill himself through a hunger strike.

Feeding a terrorist so that he doesn't die is " " " torture. " " "


I had jaw surgery as a late teen to fix a malocclusion. I drank Ensure for a while. After about three weeks I was willing to blend anything and everything to get something other than Ensure. Pizza, salad, burgers, anything was OK as long as it wasn't Ensure.

I'm not saying it was torture, but it was torture adjacent.

Don't do that green bean casserole slop.

Here's what you do:
Pre-heat your oven to 420. Get some nice fresh green beans. Lop off the ends. Wash and pat them dry. Put about a tablespoon of nice extra virgin olive oil on them. Spread them out on a cookie sheet. Salt to taste. Put them on the middle rack in the oven. Roast them 11-14 minutes. Mince some garlic. Serve the green beans with minced garlic on top.

So much better than nasty old green bean casserole.

No, I reject this kind of argument. Its only torture if you are doing terrible, cruel, and unusual things to someone for a goal, an end such as gathering information or to bring about an evil end.

Feeding someone is not torture UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. You can torture someone WHILE feeding them (ie making it painful and miserable) but the bare act of providing sustenance to someone is the exact opposite of torture on the ethics scale.

"inflammatory rhetoric" is not a news term, its an opinion term. It is an attempt to manipulate and control, not inform. You present the rhetoric and its up to the viewer to decide if it is inflammatory or not.

My mom could overcook an anvil. She made a TV Dinner look five star. I still will not touch a pot pie or vegetable soup.

So there was a vague, odd green shape on my plate. And she said "those poor kids in Africa". And I said "I'll buy the stamp and pay you back for the sprouts".

If they feel like they've been constructed from answers to questions in a focus group where the participants were promised Oliver Garden coupons, that's because that's precisely how they were assembled.

I would love to know the marvel viewing stats on Disney+. I joined the platform during the covid lockdown and my family watched every single thing marvel until phase 4. We looked forward to Falcon and the Winter Soldier (which sucked) and Loke (which was okay) and haven't watched a single thing else.

Not out of protest, nobody in the family has any interest anymore.

We are still into the genre, we saw all the spidermans (which are very good) and even checked out Snyder's man of steel series (just boring but not woke)

I think mostly its just compassionately keeping a prisoner alive as directed under the military code of justice, the geneva conventions, and pretty much every sane person's perspective on morality.

Starving yourself to death is not a good thing, under any circumstances. Feeding someone throwing a tantrum and trying to starve themselves is NOT TORTURE no matter how you try to spin it.

It might not be welcome, it might be frustrating to your plans, it might even be infuriating. But it is not torture to provide sustenance to a fellow human being. That's patently ridiculous.

243 Re torture by feeding them -- The ones doing the intimidating are the prisoners, knowing full well that the US government is bound by law, custom, morals, and ethics (don't laugh) to see to the welfare of the inmates. Going on a "hunger strike" places the military personnel at the camp in a difficult ethical dilemma.

244 Sounds familiar, except it was my mom who was the drunk, and my dad had his escape via the Navy.

One thing I diverge from with the Boomers and Silents is the idea of "eat what is on your plate" because of that.

I put food on my kids plate. Not hungry ? No problem. It'll be there in the morning.

And yes, we made a small effort to make things that we knew our kids liked. Adult tastes are different than kid tastes. My parents took great delight in serving shit like Liver and Onions, Vegetable Soup, and other shit that I still will not eat to this day.

If I won't eat it, as a grown ass man ... why beat a kid's ass for not eating it ? Except as a self ego stroke.

Bullshit. Straight up bullshit. No different than saying, as the cop enforces the edict of the mayor that you must surrender your gun ... that you are in the wrong for putting that poor cop in the position of enforcing the law to keep his pension.

He's just doing his job, you say.

252 I'm non-hexadecimal now.

I'm non-non binary.

253 I'm non-binary again. I'm unitary.

My pronoun is pronoun.

Posted by: Minuteman at November 23, 2022 11:39 PM (WnIQd)

254 I'm binary...screw that. I'm normal.

Being woke is exhausting for a conscious sentient being. The constant nonsense collapses upon itself if one happens to reflect on the reality that is attached to a thought.
