Nothing They Can Do

It’s such a shame that no one can do anything about Sean Combs beating the hell out of a young woman, despite the fact that there is clear video evidence of the assault.

LA District Attorney George Gascón says he is not able to prosecute Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs over the 2016 assault on Cassie Ventura caught on video because it happened too long ago. The Los Angeles district attorney’s office has announced that they cannot prosecute Sean “Diddy” Combs over a video showing him assaulting Cassie Ventura at a California hotel.

“The conduct would have occurred beyond the timeline where a crime of assault can be prosecuted,” implicating the statute of limitations in an Instagram post on Friday. California’s statute of limitations is one year for simple assault and three years for felony assault.

The footage, initially obtained by CNN, depicts the rapper in March 2016 grabbing Ventura, his then-girlfriend, by the neck, throwing her to the floor, and kicking her multiple times.

And yet, for some reason, he’s not being deplatformed, demonetized, or subjected to media hit pieces, and none of the corporations with which he works are refusing to work with him. Immunity to criminal prosecution is just one of the benefits of taking the ticket… until the Black Rider decides you’re no longer of sufficient use to him, of course.

I suspect the release of the video is a warning that Mr. Combs’s time is running out.

And in case you ever asked that very stupid question: “why doesn’t someone call the police?” this should answer your question. Because neither the police nor the justice system are allowed to touch the ticket-takers without permission.

UPDATE: No worries, justice is served, and we are assured that Mr. Combs is better now. In fact, we are even told that after going to rehab, he “continues to seek both therapy and spiritual work.”

Unlocking Antarctica

Somehow, I doubt the coming conflict over Antarctica is actually about the oil that was supposedly just discovered there.

Deep beneath the harsh wasteland of the Antarctic shelf lies a prize hundreds of millions of years in the making. For more than 150 years, wars have been fought for access to oil, the thick, black ooze that the world has come to rely on. Despite the growth of renewable energy in recent years, almost all of the world’s energy, 84% as of 2020, runs on fossil fuels, including oil and gas.

And with the Russian discovery of an estimated 511billion barrels of oil and gas in the Antarctic, the race for Black Gold is on once again, as nations across the world claiming they alone own the land above the fossil fuel reserve, even though a historic treaty prevents anyone from accessing it.

But experts have warned that Russia and China should not be trusted and that the West ought to make preparations to prevent them from getting their hands on it. Russia’s discovery underneath the Antarctic is already starting to spook the West, with the issue being brought up at a Select Committee this week.

It’s becoming increasingly obvious that there is something important being concealed from the world down in Antarctica, though whether it is aliens, secret Nazi space bases, or the ice wall around the edge of the Flat Earth, I wouldn’t even begin to hazard an opinion. But whatever it is, it’s big enough that the Narrative needed to suddenly announce the existence of a massive oil discovery in order to explain the incipient conflict over it.

World War III is certainly turning out to be considerably more intriguing than I’d ever imagined.

The Chinese Know

The recent article in Global Times makes it pretty clear that both the Chinese and the Russians are very well aware of who was responsible for the assassination attempt on the Slovak Prime Minister:

The prime minister is known for his ability to reinvent his political career in the face of major setbacks. Last October, Fico and his Smer-SD party won Slovakia’s parliamentary election after campaigning on a pro-Russian and anti-American message, marking the start of his fourth term as Slovakia’s prime minister. He has consistently advocated for peace between Russia and Ukraine, and promised to stop sending weapons to Ukraine, to block Kiev’s potential NATO membership and to oppose sanctions on Russia. When discussing the situation in Ukraine, he emphasized, “We share the same opinion with China on the impossibility of solving the conflict in Ukraine by military means and we support all meaningful peace plans that will not be phantasmagories but will be based on reality.” This stance positioned him outside the European mainstream. He has become the target of criticism by the opposition party and liberal media.

The assassination attempt against Fico sounds the alarm for increasing political violence in Europe. Russian President Vladimir Putin stated, “There can be no justification for this monstrous crime.” The chaos in European politics and society is worthy of serious consideration.

Whereas Ukraine was a proxy battleground between NATO and Russia, it increasingly appears that there will be multiple fronts in the increasingly open war between Clown World and the sovereign nations.

The End of French Colonialism

It makes sense that France’s former colonies no longer seek protection from a nation that has fallen to Clown World and cannot even protect its own borders from mass invasion:

Senegalese Prime Minister Ousmane Sonko has suggested closing French military bases in the country, claiming their long-term presence is incompatible with the West African nation’s desire for complete control over its affairs.

The minister made the remarks at a joint conference with the French left-wing politician Jean-Luc Melenchon in Senegal’s capital, Dakar, on Thursday.

“More than 60 years after our independence… we must question the reasons why the French army for example still benefits from several military bases in our country and the impact of this presence on our national sovereignty and our strategic autonomy,” Sonko said.

France currently has about 350 troops in Senegal after it began downsizing the contingent of 1,200 based there in 2010. Critics have condemned the troops’ presence as a continuation of French dominance over the former colony, despite independence in 1960.

On Thursday, Sonko, a popular former opposition leader who became prime minister after his hand-picked presidential candidate, Bassirou Diomaye Faye, won a landslide in elections in March, said several countries have promised Senegal defense agreements.

“But this does not justify the fact that a third of the Dakar region is now occupied by foreign garrisons,” he said.

It’s really rather remarkable to see the last vestiges of 18th and 19th Century colonialism being dismantled in real time. How anyone can view the collapse of Christendom in Europe having been an advance of any kind, by any definition beyond a clownish inversion, is really beyond me.


Fear is the Soulkiller

For fear of Christian Russia, Warsaw has fallen to Clown World.

Poland’s capital has instructed civil servants not to display crucifixes and other religious symbols at Warsaw City Hall, sparking backlash from conservative groups.

According to the Gazeta Wyborcza newspaper, officials will not be permitted to hang crosses or crucifixes on the walls or keep them on their desks. Government employees will still be allowed to wear crosses while at work, however.

The new rules are part of a broader set of regulations aimed at combating various forms of discrimination. Officials have been instructed to use gender-neutral language, address people by their preferred pronouns, and not discriminate against same-sex couples. “Warsaw is the first city in Poland to adopt such a document,” City Hall spokeswoman Monika Beuth said.

It’s now abundantly clear that tolerance and secularism are two of global satanry’s primary weapons against Christian nations. First they demand permission, then they demand respect, and finally they demand submission.

Power > Influence

The latest attempt at a color revolution in Georgia will fail because everyone now understands what the price of failing to oppose Clown World regardless of the costs is:

The government of Georgia wants to put the country back in time to its old Soviet Union days, as it signed a controversial new “foreign agents” law that many believe will end Georgia’s young democracy.

Tens of thousands of angry protesters took to the streets of Tbilisi and other cities across Georgia to voice opposition to the new law and were met with a heavy response from Georgian riot police. Estimates vary, but nearly 200,000 people were out in the street on Saturday, a staggering show of force in a country of only 3.7 million people.

The capital has been on edge as angry protesters remain outside the Parliament banging against barricades and smashing barriers that surround the building. Violent clashes between police and protesters continue.

In a show of bipartisan support for Georgia’s struggle for democracy, a group of senators led by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., and ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Sen. Jim Risch, R-Idaho, condemned the law in a joint statement, calling it “a dark day for Georgian democracy.”

The law requires citizens, non-governmental organizations, media outlets and other civil society organizations that receive over 20% in funding from abroad to register as a foreign agent with the Justice Ministry. The law will impose significant burdens and penalties that many human rights organizations believe will marginalize and discredit opposition voices and have a chilling effect on free speech.

This is, of course, the usual Clown World inversion. First, the USA has a similar “foreign agents” law. Second, people and organizations who are funded by foreign organizations are foreign agents. Third, everyone knows that these NGOs are nothing more than Clown World’s subversion vehicles. Fourth, these “angry protesters” are paid astroturfers; no genuine protest has ever erupted over a technocratic campaign financing law. And fifth, if corrupt U.S. senators are posturing about “democracy”, you know it’s evil nonsense.

Given the price in human lives that Ukraine has paid as a result of the successful color revolution there, it would almost certainly cost fewer Georgian lives to literally execute every single protestor without trial than to submit to the fake moral posturing, back down, and risk Clown World coming to power there again.

The Cost of Taking Sides

Russia is far from the only country that has rejected Switzerland’s false assertion of neutrality:

The leaders of Brazil and South Africa will not attend a conference on Ukraine to be hosted by Switzerland next month, reports have said. The summit, scheduled for June 15-16 at the Burgenstock Resort near Lucerne, is expected to revolve around Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky’s proposed roadmap for ending the conflict with Russia. More than 160 countries have been invited to take part, including members of the G7, G20, BRICS, and the EU. Russia, however, has not been invited to the talks.

China is another major BRICS member which presumably will ignore the Swiss meeting, according to Yury Ushakov, who is assistant to the Russian president for international affairs.

BRICS leaders won’t attend Zelensky’s ‘peace conference’ , RUSSIA TODAY, 17 May 2024

The rejection of Swiss “neutrality” by the BRICSIA nations should have been, but was not, foreseen. And if this isn’t a clear warning to the short-sighted members of the Swiss parliament who have unnecessarily trashed centuries of global confidence and goodwill in a vain attempt to appease the wicked gods of Clown World, at least it should suffice make the gravity of the situation obvious to the Swiss people. It means that voting for the proposed referendum on permanent constitutional neutrality, economic and military, is absolutely necessary no matter what one’s political preferences might be, and no matter what fig leaves and word magic are offered in an attempt to convince the people to let the politicians continue to redefine the concept.

The Return of UATV

Attention UATV subscribers:

Yesterday, May 15th 2024, Unauthorized subscribers once again received the ability to subscribe to the site and its various creators for the first time since this February. While this is not a return to full functionality for reasons which will shortly be made clear, it is a huge step forward for the team and a major relief to our creators who have to a man, woman, and bear been extremely patient about the whole thing.

This first issue of our Substack newsletter is intended to help both new and returning subscribers through the process of subscribing to Unauthorized as things currently stand, as well as answer the most frequent questions we have been receiving since the update landed.

For all the details, please visit the new UATV substack. The devs intend to use it as a place to provide all of the announcements, instructions, and other information likely to be of interest to the UATV community.

And yes, there is a new Darkstream subscription which has been created for those who have been asking for it. This is a good way to indicate your interest in my video-related efforts; as you are probably aware, we make our prioritization decisions on the basis of how people are voting with their various forms of currency rather than the more common practices of rewarding the squeaky wheels or what the devs happen to believe is most easily accomplished.

Brave on Linux

I was unhappy with a cheap Chromebook that I bought to take on the road, so at the advice of a very well-travelled friend, I bought a 7-year-old used, but high-quality laptop for less than one-third the price of the Chromebook, then wiped the hard drive and installed Linux on it, specifically, Mint Cinnamon.

The installation was vastly easier than it was back when I was installing Red Hat 9, and I only ran into two minor issues in the process. Here are my notes on what was a surprisingly fast and easy installation.

  1. There is no need to remove the USB stick on the first reboot after installation. It’s not necessary. And if you do remove it, remove it BEFORE you start the reboot.
  2. Be sure to update the Update Manager before you install Brave using the commands shown below. If you don’t, you will get an error and it won’t install. You can use Copy and Paste for the strings, just remember that Ctrl-V will not work to paste inside the terminal, you have to select Edit/Paste from the pull-down menu.
  3. If you see a ~ at the end of a pasted text string, then you haven’t updated the Update Manager.
  4. Firefox, which comes installed with Cinnamon, has gotten intrusive to the point of unusability. I wouldn’t even consider using it now.

sudo apt install curl

sudo curl -fsSLo /usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg

echo “deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ stable main”|sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list

sudo apt update

sudo apt install brave-browser

Installing Brave on Linux (Debian-Ubuntu-Mint)

Computer technology has now reached the point of declining marginal utility for most users, and Windows is becoming ridiculously intrusive, so you can get some real bargains as long as you are willing to enter the tank zone and don’t have any esoteric software requirements.

UPDATE: I am reliably informed by the resident Linux community that Ctrl-Shift-V is the correct keyboard command to paste text strings in the Linux terminal.
