Sell In May And Go Away! Or Maybe Not!
Welcome to another edition of Weekend Links, for the weekend of May 01-02.
Workers of the world, unite and shitpost! Man the meme cannons for we are in a target rich environment.
This weekend has links from a number of sources and we hope you like them. Also, if you know any based left wing sources of info, please point me in that direction. Somewhat embarrassingly, I don’t really follow any of them as they are all super woke. Hopefully someone out there is non-crazy left wing.
Also – if you missed it, look up Stewie’s brilliant deep dive into the extended Crypto derivatives universe – https://www.ezfka.com/2021/04/27/yield-farming/ – its really good!
~~~Saturday Morning Joke~~~
A little boy is pulling his Radio Flyer red wagon. Inside his wagon are his teddy bear and water bottle. He’s walking with his little friend, Tommy, and says to him: “Guess what I found under Mommy’s bed this morning? A mask, a whip, handcuffs, and a cape. Gee…I didn’t know my mommy was a SUPER hero!”
~~~Another Saturday Morning Joke~~~
If I’ve understood this correctly, Victoria is charging people extra for driving EV’s. Apparently this is because they get to charge people on new cars as a state levy, as opposed to federal government tax. Or something like that… who the f knows anymore… fml.
Politics And Governance
QAnon made a return a few days ago. Lin Wood is a defamation lawyer (43 years experience) and has successfully sued CNN 4 times. And boy its a doozy!
For my money, things are a moving… here is Tucker Carlson piling on a few days later. Damn!
Anyone who thinks this is all nonsense is very very mistaken at the moment. I sure don’t know what is going on, but lots is happening in the background.
What exactly is going on in the US? Clearly a civil war of sorts, but right now the fog of war is pretty heavy so who knows?
In other news Rudy Guiliani’s office and home were raided, but is not being publicised on state/corporate media at the moment, which is curious in itself – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/rudy-giulianis-manhattan-apartment-raided-doj-electronic-devices-seized – and then his lawyer released a statement – https://rudygiulianics.com/2021/04/28/statement-by-robert-j-costello-on-april-28-2021/ – calling Hunter Biden a pedo.
Reality TV execs were seen crying, and one commented, “How can we compete with this!!!”
Other things also happening…
- Turkey is cooked (heh!) – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/fall-turkey-rise-bitcoin – if Erdogan’s thugs are going after crypto exchanges to stop the fall in TRL. The founder of one has apparently disappeared – https://www.coindesk.com/turkish-state-news-crypto-exchange-ceo-disappeared – with 2 yards to Albania.
- Does architecture – https://thefederalist.com/2021/04/26/what-happened-when-hungary-revived-classical-architecture-in-budapest/ – make a difference to the state religion? Hungarians weigh in…
P.S – Next week will do deep dive into the John Kerry / Zarif shitshow this week. Pro-tip the Iranians also know how to run information operations lol…
World War 3
Qatar AF doing an elephant walk. Not sure who its aimed at.
Also, lots of really odd news going down. Like really odd.
- Some folks aligned left seem to be doing wierd stuff – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/massive-shadowy-darpa-linked-company-took-over-chunk-pentagons-internet-inauguration-day – with millions of Pentagon IP’s. For a read about why – https://libertyunyielding.com/2021/04/25/cry-havoc-and-let-slip-the-ip-addresses-of-war/ – sheds more light on it.
- There is strage chatter (say last month or so) about ground troops using DEW’s. This is one article – https://libertyunyielding.com/2021/04/23/odd-thread-emerging-on-directed-energy-attacks-on-u-s-troops/ – but Thomas Wictor has been on this particular thread for a while, claiming 40 US troops killed nearly 600 Russian troops in Syria a while ago. I really don’t know what to make of it. This article – https://www.popularmechanics.com/military/weapons/a31915295/marine-corps-tanks/ – is the starting point, in that did the Marines ditch their tanks and artillery because they have something better?
- A bunch of US Navy satellites – https://www.defensenews.com/show-reporter/c4isrnet-conference/2021/04/21/coming-soon-an-announcement-on-which-army-and-navy-units-will-move-to-the-space-force/ – just got transferred to Space Force.
- When Bill Maher calls leftists stupid – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/problem-your-ideas-are-stupid-bill-maher-blasts-most-gullible-millennials – and James Carville, ex-consilieri for the Clinton Family – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/james-carville-wokeness-problem-and-we-all-know-it – agrees.
- France is getting exciting – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/paris-mayor-backs-military-chiefs-who-threatened-seize-control-macron-over-inaction – while definately coordinated, who and why still unknown. Culture War or WW3 – you decide!
- King James is closer to Queen James? Read – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/gofundme-cop-who-mocked-lebron-james-hits-70k-after-friend-alleges-suspension-without-pay – more here.
Written In The Stars
Line up for you’re horoscopes! And because you lot are lazy 🙂
Martin North fighting the good fight… go man go!
- But the media war – https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9514431/Australia-Post-boss-Christine-Holgate-Ahmed-Fahour-spent-7-000-pens-smart-watches.html – is being fought both sides.
- I’m inclined to agree – https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-04-28/reporting-line-demonises-the-unemployed-critics-say/100097752 – with the ABC. A broken clock is right twice a day i guess.
Why is he everywhere now? Is he gunning after Albo? I always though Abbott might have his time in the wilderness and return, but maybe that is Rudd’s play? The below are all in the last week…
- https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/apr/12/australias-vaccination-rollout-strategy-has-been-an-epic-fail-now-scott-morrison-is-trying-to-gaslight-us – Rudd opinion piece…
The powers that be were never on Albo’s side, but Shorten seems to have been ditched too. Your fund remains long popcorn.
And Peta Credlin, a keen political observer, seems to have picked up on this too – https://www.news.com.au/finance/work/leaders/peta-credlin-says-kevin-rudd-malcolm-turnbull-have-very-bruised-egos/news-story/54c62c1c962353acc2cbae46ce438571
So its in German. But it looks amazing. I’m now getting many DoorDash ads on my YouTube, totally worth it!
Absurd… More than usual, that is…
- I got nothing – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/outrage-after-iran-gets-elected-un-womens-rights-committee
- The world is in a bad – https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9518625/Drunk-driver-says-f-k-police-downs-shots-video-killing-cop-hit-run.html – place. What a waste…
- Ze Germans – https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/04/german-police-ransack-home-doctor-provides-evidence-court-children-endangered-mental-physical-spiritual-obligation-wear-face-masks/ – are up to random crazy again…
- Lol – https://www.unz.com/estriker/china-nationalists-smash-cyber-network-of-feminists-and-foreign-backed-social-justice-warriors/ – I’m sorry but its funny.
