I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

EARLY NEWS FROM THE WINDY CITY


The Mayor of Chicago and the magician

Here are some quick bits from Chicago:

  • An anarchist symbol was found on an abandoned shack in the woods in a Chicago suburb (likely had been there for years) and the media made a big deal out of it as evidence that there was going to be a war on the streets.
  • Backpacks are not allowed on the trains from the suburbs today - might be carrying something really bad.
  • Nine local activists were grabbed by the cops and held on Wednesday for 24 hours without lawyers being allowed to even know where they were.
  • Air Force fighter jets are flying over Chicago today and instructed to shoot down anything that looks like it might be intending to harm NATO.  They'd better be careful they don't shoot down one of their own spy drones. 
More to come I am sure.  You can't make this stuff up.  It's not paranoia.  This is military psy-ops to make public fearful and accepting of a militarized society.
