First, a link to the wikipedia page for the protocols so those interested can see how much of what you're about to read is omitted from there:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Protocols_of_the_Elders_of_Zion
The book in which they [the Protocols] are embodied was first published in the year 1897 by Philip Stepanov for private circulation among his intimate friends. The first time Professor Sergius A. Nilus published them was in 1901 in a book called The Great Within the Small and reprinted in 1905. A copy of this is in the British Museum bearing the date of its reception, August 10, 1906.
All copies that were known to exist in Russia were destroyed in the Kerensky regime, and under his successors the possession of a copy by anyone in Soviet land was a crime sufficient to ensure the owner's of being shot on sight. (source):
The best evidence of the genuineness of the Protocols is that in March, 1917 the Bolshevik Revolution took place in Russia and one of the first things done upon the Jewish Bolsheviks taking power was to destroy all copies of Professor Sergius A. Nilus’ book, The Great Within the Small, by. That book, which was first published in Tsarskoe-Tselc (Russia) in 1901, contained The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. All copies of the Protocols that were known to exist in Russia were destroyed during the Kerensky regime. The law followed by Kerensky’s communist successors to power was that the possession of a copy of the Protocols by anyone in the Soviet Union was a crime punishable by being shot on sight
...Professor Nilus was arrested by the Cheka (Russian Secret Police) in Kiev. He was imprisoned and tortured. The Jewish president of the court, told Professor Nilus that the brutal treatment he received was as retribution for "having done them incalculable harm in publishing the Protocols."
[2011] Solving the Mystery of Babylon the Great by Edward Hendrie
The attack on the Protocols in the 1920’s proved above all else the truth of their contention; it showed that the standing organization for suppressing public discussion of the conspiracy had been perfected in the intervening 120 years . Probably so much money and energy were never before in history expended on the effort to suppress a single document.
[1956] The Controversy of Zion by Douglas Reeds
In 1865 the Jewish Rabbi RZEICHORN, made a speech in Prague. The speech was published 11 years later by Sir John Radcliff, who was assassinated shortly after its publication and it became almost extinct for years. Here are a few passages;
"With Gold one can buy the most upright consiences, with Gold one can fix the value of every stock, the price of every merchandise, one can loan it to states that afterwards one holds at ones mercy.
"Already the principle banks, the stock exchanges throughout the world, the loans to all governments are in our hands. "The other great power is the press. By ceaselessly repeating certain ideas, the press in the end makes them considered as truths. The Theatre renders similair services, every where theatre and press follow our directives. By an indefatigable campaign in favour of the democratic form of government, we will divide the Gentiles amongst themselves in political parties, we shall thus destroy the unity of their nations, we will sow the seeds of discord. Powerless they will have to accept the laws of our bank, always united, always devoted to our cause.
"The possession of land has always procured influence and power. In the name of social justice and equality, we will divide the great properties; we will give small fragments to the peasents who desire it with all their heart, But who will soon be indebted to us by the very exploitation of these properties. Our capital will enable us to be the real masters.
"Let us use all force to replace the circulation of gold by that of paper; our banks will absorb the gold, and we shall decide what then what value the paper money will have, this will make us masters of every mans existence. "We will promise to the workers salaries they have never dared to dream of, but we will also heighten the price of all necessities, so much so that our profits will be even greater.
"By our jokes and attacks we will render their priests ridiculous and eventually odius, their religion as ridiculous, as odius as their priests. We shall become the masters of their souls. But above all, let us get control of education, of the schools. By them we will spread the ideas that are useful to us, and we will mold the childrens brains as we wish".
David Icke writes, in his book "The Trigger" (2019), of the above quotes from Rabbi Rzeichhorn:
Make of that what you will because I can't prove authenticity, but
(a) you have the right to be aware of this information and
(b) there can be no doubt as we observe the world that the plans laid out in the Protocols, by the Sabbatian-Frankist Illuminati and attributed to Rabbi Reichhorn have happened or are happening.
This is so patently obvious that agents of Sabbatian-Frankism, some knowingly, some dupes, have employed the usual fall-back, fit-every-situation technique of condemning as 'antiSemitic' anyone who points this out and asks any questions about the plan described in the Protocols. I am not saying this is all a 'Jewish plot' - I am saying it's a plot by the Sabbatian-Frankist Death Cult that hates and despises Jews and Judaism as it hates and despises everyone else, and that this cult is part of the wider global satanic cult that infests every culture, race and country. On Sabbatian-Frankism I am at one with rabbis such as Marvin S. Antelman and many others.
The Protocols, whatever their origin, have been dismissed as a forgery since the articles by Irish writer Philip Graves in the London Times in 1921 which were also carried by The New York Times. Graves claimed the Protocols resembled a satire on Napoleon III by French lawyer Maurice Joly called Dialogue aux enfers entre Machiavel et Montesquieu ('Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu') published in 1864. This is where the story usually ends. The Protocols were proved to be a forgery in The Times in 1921 - move along now, nothing to see here.
There is, however, other background to consider. Phillip Graves was a captain in British Army Intelligence who worked with 'Lawrence of Arabia', another British agent, who manipulated Palestinian Arabs to drive out the Ottoman Empire and open the way for the new Israel to hijack their land. Graves' uncle was Sir Robert Windham Graves, a British Consul in Turkey and financial advisor to the Turkish government who worked for Civil Intelligence in Cairo, Egypt.
The writer of the articles in The Times was connected to British Army Intelligence and there's more. Peter Grose, a writer with the Council on Foreign Relations, revealed in his 1994 book, Gentleman Spy: The Life of Allen Dulles, that Philip Graves' 'source' for the articles was a 'Russian emigre' provided to him by ... Allen Dulles. What a coincidence. Dulles, a Council on Foreign Relations stalwart, later CIA chief and instigator of the satanic MKUltra mind control horror, 'discovered' his man while stationed at the US Embassy in post-Ottoman Turkey.
The end of the Ottoman Muslim empire (brought about by World War I) was crucial to the establishment of Israel because it included Palestine. Peter Grose said The Times extended a 'loan' to the 'emigre' on the understanding that it did not have to be paid back. An Internet commentator said of the Allen Dulles 'scoop':
This was quite an accomplishment for a young American embassy employee, to both prove the major anti-Jewish plan for world domination was a forgery as well as unilaterally keeping Lenin out of the United States so he could be transported to Russia to begin the communist revolution. Strange coincidences like this seemed to follow both Dulles brothers during their long careers in 'public service' - or should we say 'serving the Anglo-American interests headquartered in the City of London'.
Dulles and dodgy are interchangeable words and Rabbi Antelman said that the Council on Foreign Relations is America's most powerful pro-Israel lobby group and controlled by Sabbatian-Frankists.
The Times articles that trashed the Protocols were written by a British Army Intelligence operative using an unnamed source provided by the infamous liar and manipulator Allen Dulles and the source secured a loan from the newspaper he would not have to repay. Oh, nothing to question here, then. Now shut up you 'anti-Semite'!
Colin Holmes, a lecturer in economic history at the UK's Sheffield University, claimed to have identified the Dulles emigre as Michael Raslovleff, a 'self-identified anti-Semite', who gave the information to Graves because he didn't want to 'give a weapon of any kind to the Jews, whose friend I have never been'. Surely having a document circulating that was alleged to be proof of a 'Jewish plot' is what an 'anti-Semite' would want rather than seeking to trash its legitimacy? Anyway, that's some background and people will have to decide what they think.
–David Icke, "The Trigger", 2019
After reading the above from Icke I had renewed interest in the Protocols and started to do a little research.
Wikipedia is "certain" that the Protocols are a "forgery"; here is what they have to say:
Source material for the forgery consisted jointly of "Dialogue aux enfers entre Machiavel et Montesquieu" (Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu), an 1864 political satire by Maurice Joly; and a chapter from Biarritz, an 1868 novel by the antisemitic German novelist Hermann Goedsche, which had been translated into Russian in 1872.
Interestingly, however, when one looks up Herman Goedsche and his book Biarritz (again, on wikipedia), one reads:
In his 1868 book Biarritz, Goedsche plagiarized a book by the French satirist Maurice Joly, The Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu
Also "Dialogue aux enfers..." itself appears to be somewhat plagiarized:
Umberto Eco considered that Dialogue in Hell was itself plagiarised in part from a novel by Eugène Sue, Les Mystères du Peuple.
Interesting, what is going on here? But let's continue. Wikipedia says:
Identifiable phrases from Joly constitute 4% of the first half of the first edition, and 12% of the second half
[Australian researcher Peter Myer comments on the above:]
[“Cohn's (whose research the wikipedia entry makes use of) arithmetic is incorrect. The word-count of the parallel passages from the Protocols as listed by Bernstein, is 4,361, while the word-count of the Protocols is 26, 496. That is, the parallel passages comprise 16.45% of the Protocols; this is substantial, but still less than one sixth of the total.”]
So... where does the rest of the book come from?
Back to Wikipedia:
A major source for the Protocols was Der Judenstaat (1896) by Theodor Herzl, which was referred to as Zionist Protocols in its initial French and Russian editions. Paradoxically, early Russian editions of the Protocols assert that they did not come from a Zionist organization.
Stepanov is said to have published the Protocols first around the same time as Herzl's book was published. That's awfully tight timing.
Curious.
The wikipedia page makes no mention of the original Philip Stepanov publication, or Stepanov himself (big omission), but the source authors the page quotes from do. Interesting that.
Time to look into this Stepanov character.
No Wikipedia page that I can find.
The first thing I found was this:
He said that the "Protocols" was not Jewish-Masonic but a Zionist document secretly read at the Zionist Congress in Basle in 1897. (This especially is a foolish notion since an affidavit written by Philip Stepanov, the first publisher, proves that the "Protocols" was first brought to Russia two years before that Congress took place.) source
Two years before!? How can a book that heavily relies on plagiarizing from a book published in 1897, be published two years before in 1895?
I went hunting for this affidavit, and found quotes from it in another document.
A bombshell document...
...that I shall now quote from extensively (source at the end):
According to Philip Stepanov, formerly Procurator of the Moscow Synod, Chamberlain, and Privy Councillor, a copy of The Protocols was given to him in 1895 by his neighbour Maj. Alexis Sukhotin, Marshall of the town of Orel, who had been given his copy by Mlle Justine Glinka. (Sworn statement of Philip Stepanov, dated 17 April 1927).
Glinka, the daughter of a Russian general, had been in France since 1884, working for Gen. Orgevskii, secretary to the Minister of the Interior. Joseph Schorst, a Jewish member of the Mizraim Masonic Lodge in Paris, was in her employ, and offered to obtain a document which became known as The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. Schorst later fled to Egypt where he was murdered. Returning to Russia, she gave a copy of the Protocols to Alexis Sukhotin, who showed it to Stepanov and Professor Sergius A. Nilus.
In wishing to refute the later allegation that The Protocols were formulated at the 1897 First Zionist Congress in Basle, Herman Bernstein, an early debunker of The Protocols, cites Stepanov’s sworn statement, the handwritten original being reproduced in Mrs Leslie Fry’s book Waters Flowing Eastward. Bernstein states:
"…This account of the history of the Protocols in Russia is accompanied by a facsimile affidavit made in 1927 by Philip Stepanov, one of the two friends to whom Sukhotin first showed the Protocols in Russia. Stepanov's telltale affidavit, translated from the Russian, reads as follows:
"In 1895 my neighboring estate owner in the province of Tula, retired Major Alexey Nikolayevitch Sukhotin, gave me a handwritten copy of the 'Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion.' He told me that a lady of his acquaintance (he did not mention her name), residing in Paris, had found them at the home of a friend of hers (probably of Jewish origin), and before leaving Paris, had translated them secretly, without his knowledge, and had brought one copy of that translation to Russia, and had given that copy to him, Sukhotin.
"At first I mimeographed one hundred copies of the Protocols, but that edition was difficult to read, and I resolved to have it printed somewhere, without mentioning the time, the city and the printer; I was helped in this by Arcady Ippolitovitch Kelepkovsky, who at that time was Privy Councillor with Grand Duke Sergey Alexandrovitch; he had these documents printed at the Provincial Printing Press; that was in 1897. S. A. Nilus reprinted these Protocols in full in his book, with his own commentaries.
"Philip Petrovitch Stepanov, former Procurator of the Moscow Synod Office; Chamberlain, Privy Councillor, and at the time of the publication of that edition, Chief of the district railway service of the Moscow-Kursk railway (in Orel).
"This is the signature of a member of the colony of Russian refugees at Stary and Novy Futog. "Witnessed by me, Stary Futog, April 17, 1927. "Chairman of the Administration of the Colony, "Prince Vladimir Galitzin." (Seal)
–(Herman Bernstein, The Truth About "The Protocols Of Zion": A Complete Exposure, 1971, pp. 37-40. Bernstein quotes from L. Fry's book Waters Flowing Eastward).
...there are internal indications that The Protocols date well prior to 1900-01. For e.g. a reference to "the Panama scandal" of 1888 which caused a furore in France during the 1890s. Also had The Protocols been contrived by Golovinsky ca. 1900 (see source below for more info) or at least sometime after 1896, it seems reasonable that anti-Semites would draw widely on references to Zionism, the First Zionist Congress taking place in 1897. However, there are no references to Zionism at all in The Protocols. The initial opinion of Nilus et al that The Protocols were not derived from the Zionist movement, but from a Jewish faction of Masonry, were correct.
It is particularly interesting that Cohn [historian Norman Cohn, quoted extensively in the wikipdeia entry] bases his refutation of The Protocols on the assertion that they are plagiarised from Maurice Joly’s Dialogues in Hell, and refutes the notion that The Protocols could emanate from the Alliance Israelite Universelle, yet fails to make any mention of the close association that existed between the Alliance’s Adolphe Cremieux and Joly. After all, most of the publicists for The Protocols seem to have considered the association, but Cohn, eager to nick-pick on various details, neglects refuting these most damning connections. Both Cohn and Bernstein were fully aware of Joly’s associations with Cremieux and with Masonry as stated in Mrs Fry’s book Waters Flowing Eastward (both mention the book) yet they say nothing of these associations. We must therefore assume that Mrs Fry’s assertions regarding Joly, Masonry and Cremieux are correct.
Whilst we shall shortly deal with the alleged parallels between passages of The Protocols and Joly’s work, we shall first deal with background of Joly that Cohn, Bernstein et al conspicuously avoid. Joly (1831-1878) had a family background in Masonry from his maternal grandfather. Studying law, he secured a post in he Ministry of the Interior. In 1860 he founded a newspaper, Le Palais, for lawyers and attorneys. The principal stockholders were: Jules Favre (Mason who served in the Gambetta Government, the so-called Government of National Defence, which arose after the fall of Napoleon III in 1870), Desmaret (Mason), Leblond (Mason), Adolphe Cremieux, Mason and head of the Alliance Israelite Universelle, a member of the Gambetta Government, of whom more later), Emmanuel Arago, Mason, serving with Gambetta), and Antoine Berryer (apparently the only non-Mason around Joly).
Joly’s politics were self-described as "socialist", with the need to accept "extreme means". With Cremieux he shared a hatred of Napoleon III. However what The Times, as well as subsequent critics of The Protocols do not mention is that Joly’s polemic against Napoleon III was itself predated by a similar work entitled Machiavelli, Montesquieu, Rousseau, which was written by Jacob Venedey and published in Berlin in 1850. Therefore, Joly was continuing a certain polemical line of thought rather than inventing it. If there are similarities between Joly and The Protocols, then there are also similarities with Venedey. All three for instance refer to the Hindu God Vishnu in parallel passages.
According to the expert testimony of Col. Fleischhauer at the 1935 Berne Trial, Joly was himself Jewish, his name having been originally Joseph Levy, Joly being concocted out of four letters of his true name. This testimony was said to have caused a sensation in the courtroom. When the plaintiffs produced a "baptismal certificate" to prove that Joly was not Jewish, it was dated December 1829, i.e. several years prior to Joly’s real date of birth according to his own account.
Since Venedey, a communist, takes a position antithetical to Joly, his champion being Machiavelli, we can see here a dialectical process in operation, that was brought to revolutionary perfection by Marx and the communists, and has arguably been used by the ‘Elders of Zion’. The dialectical strategy consists of promoting tension in society to achieve change. This includes the promotion of ideas and movements seemingly antithetical to ones own aims in the short term to advance long-range aims. Hence, the seemingly contradictory and self-destructive phenomenon of international bankers financing supposedly anti-capitalist revolutions to bring down traditional societies, as we shall see in due course. That the dialectical process is operative here can be inferred from the fact that Cremieux was the mentor of both Venedey and Joly. Hence the seemingly contradictory, antithetical positions of Venedey and Joly represent two sides of the programme of the ‘Learned Elder’.
Venedey (1805-1871) was a Jew who sought refuge in France, due to his revolutionary activities in Germany. He was removed from Paris by the police, but was able to return due to the intercession of Arago (whom we have seen was to become a stockholder in Joly’s newspaper) and Francois Mignet, both friends of Cremieux. Venedey was closely associated with Karl Marx and helped establish the Communist International, and was also active in the Masonic order Bauhutte.
Masonry, Illuminati & The Rite of Mizraim
Mrs Fry and other authorities on The Protocols have claimed that the documents were taken from a Lodge of the Masonic Rite of Mizraim, by one of its Jewish members, Joseph Schorst. Whilst this suggestion is of course rubbished out of hand by Cohn et al, once again the Protocols deniers remain strangely mute as to the role of both Cremieux and Joly in Mizraim.
Cremieux was a prominent member of Mizraim as well as Scottish Rite Masonry and the Grand Orient. Cremieux was a member of the Supreme Council of the Order of Mizraim. He also became Grand Master of the unified Grand Orient and Scottish Rite Masonry.
The Aegpytian Rite of Mizraim or Misraim was founded in Milan, Italy in 1805 and transferred to France in 1814. Mizraim is Hebrew for Egypt. Its origins reach back to the cabalistic magician Cagliostro, who was an initiate of the Illuminati. But the Misraim-Rite was (and still is) not accepted by Regular Freemasonry.
In 1862, another irregular rite, the Memphis Rite was introduced to the USA. On 4th June 1872, John Yarker introduced the Memphis-Rite to England. Under his jurisdiction, Memphis and Misraim came together. This unification was called The Antient and Primitive Rite of Memphis and Misraim, or Memphis-Misraim.
In 1902 Theodor Reuss, a German espionage agent, gained sanction from Yarker to install the Scottish Rite (33 degrees) and the "irregular" MM-Rites (90 and 97 degrees) in Germany. In 1917, Reuss introduced some of the Scottish Rite and MM degrees into the Ordo Templi Orientis, an occult society founded in 1906. This OTO was to be taken over by the infamous "Black Magician" and self-declared "Great Beast 666", Aleister Crowley. Crowley, a cabalist, was to write his own manifesto for a "New World Order", which he called The Book of the Law, expounding a Nietzschean doctrine of "Force and Fire" on the ruins of Christianity. Crowley saw his movement as being a continuation of the Illuminati and counted its founder Adam Weishaupt among a long list of "saints". A major difference of course is that Crowley did not have the resources and influence of Organised Jewry.
In 1870 the Rite of Mizraim was established in England under the authority of Cremieux. Bro. Little, one of those at the founding conference of Mizraim in London, on 28 December, stated:
"…Brother Cremieux, however, as a proof of his willingness to assist, sent to the meeting his diploma as a member of the French Grand College of Rites, and this diploma was placed upon the table during the proceedings, and was examined by several out of the hundred Masons present. It was also understood that Brother C.'s diploma invested him with the power to found rites or orders recognized by the Grand Orient of France (the Rite of Misraim being one)…"
The Freemason reported that a
"Supreme Council General of the 90°, had been regularly formed here 'under the authority conveyed in a diploma granted to the Illustrious Brother Cremieux, 33° of the Rite Ecossais, and a member of the Grand College of Rites in France.'"
Bernstein and Cohn rubbish any such notion of Masonic involvement in any conspiracy, including involvement in the French Revolution. This repudiation is necessary on their part, since Masonry plays a major factor in the conspiracy expounded in The Protocols. We shall consider the role of Masonry and the Illuminati in due course. Suffice it here to cite several eminent sources that can hardly be said to be anti-Semitic. Benjamin Disraeli, the Jewish Victorian era Prime Minister of Britain and intimate of the Rothschild banking dynasty, one of the mainstays of Jewish world influence, states in terms themselves reminiscent of The Protocols:
"When the secret societies, in February 1848, surprised Europe, they were themselves surprised by the unexpected opportunity, and so little capable were they of seizing the occasion, that had it not been for the Jews, who of late years unfortunately have been connecting themselves with these unhallowed associations, imbecile as were the governments the uncalled-for outbreak would not have ravaged Europe. But the fiery energy and the teeming resources of the children of Israel maintained for a long time the unnecessary and useless struggle. If the reader throws over the provisional governments of Germany, and Italy, and even of France, formed at that period, he will recognise everywhere the Jewish element. Even the insurrection, and defence, and administration of Venice, which, from the resource of statesmanlike moderation displayed, commanded almost the respect and sympathy of Europe, were accomplished by a Jew - Manini, who by the bye is a Jew who professes the whole of the Jewish religion, and believes in Calvary as well as Sinai, 'a converted Jew', as the Lombards styled him, quite forgetting, in the confusion of their ideas, that it is the Lombards who are the converts - not Manini."
Secondly we have a remarkable statement from Leon Trotsky, the Jewish revolutionary who became commander of the Red Army and with Lenin the most powerful man in the USSR:
"It was during that period that I became interested in freemasonry. ... In the eighteenth century freemasonry became expressive of a militant policy of enlightenment, as in the case of the Illuminati, who were the forerunners of the revolution; on its left it culminated in the Carbonari. Freemasons counted among their members both Louis XVI and the Dr. Guillotin who invented the guillotine. In southern Germany freemasonry assumed an openly revolutionary character, whereas at the court of Catherine the Great it was a masquerade reflecting the aristocratic and bureaucratic hierarchy. A freemason Novikov was exiled to Siberia by a freemason Empress. . I discontinued my work on freemasonry to take up the study of Marxian economics. ... The work on freemasonry acted as a sort of test for these hypotheses. ... I think this influenced the whole course of my intellectual development.".
Note that Trotsky not only refers to Masonry as a major factor in revolutionary ferment, but how it had also infiltrated the hierarchy of the old order it was about to overthrow, and that both the Illuminati and the Italian Carbonari were involved. Yet Bernstein and Cohn dismiss such sentiments when expressed by Robison et al as "fantasy". Bernstein also opines that the Illuminati were a "rival" of Masonry and did not survive its banning by the Elector of Bavaria. As we shall see, this opinion is naïve at best.
Thirdly, Bernard Lazare traces the Jewish influence on Masonry and the Illuminati, as follows:
"…It is true of course that there were Jews connected with Freemasonry from its birth, students of the Kabbala, as shown by certain rites which survive. It is very probable too that in the years preceding the French Revolution, they entered in greater numbers than ever, into the councils of the secret societies, becoming, indeed, themselves the founders of secret associations. There were Jews in the circle around Weishaupt, and a Jew of Portuguese origin, Martinez de Pasquales, established numerous groups of Illuminati in France and gathered a large number of disciples, who he instructed in the doctrines of reintegration. The lodges which Martinez founded were mystic in character, whereas the other orders of Freemasonry were, on the whole, rationalistic in their teachings. This might almost lead one to say that the secret societies gave expression in a way to the two fold nature of the Jew, on the one hand a rigid rationalism, on the other that pantheism which… often ended in a sort of Cabalistic theurgy. There would be little difficulty in showing how these two tendencies worked in harmony; how Cazotte, Cagliostro, Martinez [de Pasquales]… were practically in alliance with the Encyclopaedists and the Jacobins, succeeded in arriving at the same end, the undermining, namely, of Christianity."
The Protocols (if obtained in 1884) refer to the Panama Canal scandal years before the scandal had become public knowledge (in 1892). Therefore whoever wrote The Protocols must have had inside knowledge of high powered financial manipulation.
We have already noted that The Protocols did not originate with the Zionist movement. This was the original opinion of Nilus and others, although subsequently modified after Zionism became an influential movement among the Jews. In fact, the majority of the most prominent figures of World Jewry were opposed to Zionism, and some Orthodox Jews are still antagonistic on the basis that Israel was not to be recreated until after the advent of the King-Messiah.
The principal allegation levelled at the supposed forgers of The Protocols is that the purpose is to foment "anti-Semitism". However, the following is a remarkable passage from The Protocols in which it is said that "anti-Semitism" serves the purposes of the "Elders of Zion" in keeping the Jewish masses herded under their leadership.
As one might say today, this seems to be something of a "protection racket". The Jewish masses are being milked of millions of dollars every year to fill the coffers not only of Israel but of numerous "Jewish defence" organisations such as the Anti-Defamation League, which continually feed the Jews the line that a pogrom or a new "Holocaust" is just around the corner if Jews don’t keep donating. Here is what The Protocols say about "anti-Semitism". It is surely a strange passage if the authors are anti-Semites wishing to incite pogroms:
"Nowadays if any States raise a protest against us it is only pro forma at our discretion, and by our direction, for their antiSemitism is indispensable to us for the management of our lesser brethren. I will not enter into further explanations, for this matter has formed the subject of repeated discussions amongst us." (Prot. IX)
There is much, much more to this story; what I have quoted above are abridged excerpts.
The full document is a fascinating read and you can read it here:
The PROTOCOLS of ZION In Context By Dr. K. R. Bolton (PDF)
"But you yourselves perfectly well know that to produce the possibility of the expression of such wishes by all the nations it is indispensable to trouble in all countries the people's relations with their governments so as to utterly exhaust humanity with dissension, hatred, struggle, envy and even by the use of torture, by starvation, BY THE INOCULATION OF DISEASES, by want, so that the goyim see no other issue than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty in money and in all else. But if we give the nations of the world a breathing space the moment we long for is hardly likely ever to arrive."

I met Barry when we both went to Avionics school at Millington during a misguided attempt of mine at transferring out of the 03 field. He was my roommate when I first got there, and would be for a while. We hit it off right away. Which is fortunate, I guess, where a roomy is concerned.
Barry, I think, remains to this day perhaps the most highly intelligent guy I have ever encountered. He had more than one degree, as I recall, in higher mathematics, and possibly some others -I don’t recall. He was a bit older, though not by a whole lot.
As I said, he had a head for numbers, which could only serve him well in the field in which we had both chosen to endeavor.
I did not, which would occasion me no small distress, and, together with what would quickly become obvious was a complete and utter ineptitude concerning anything more technological than a pencil sharpener, would occasion my eventual dismissal from the training program. I would find myself back at LeJeune, back among my fellow grunts, where, I would completely understand, by that point, I belonged. It would feel like coming home.
Barry would try to help me out, but I was Gomer Pyle to his Stephen Hawkins. Five minutes in, I wouldn’t have a clue what the fuck he was talking about. I would tell him so.
“But it’s so simple, man!”
“Simple for You, Dude! I forgot my own birthday, twice! You got to dumb this shit down for me, man!”
He would do his best, but the gulf between us was just too wide, and I would sink further and further into confusion. I left Gomer behind, and started, more and more, to feel like his dumber cousin Goober, of Andy Griffith fame. But perhaps I do insult to Goober.
We did other things while we were there, of course. I mean, you can’t study All the time (maybe I should have). I would hang out with Barry, sometimes, and sometimes with one other guy I got to know pretty well; another hillbilly such as myself (we always find each other).
The Tennessee State Fair was pretty nice. My favorite thing there was the life-size statue of Dolly Parton carved in butter. It was displayed in the open, under a hot sun, in a refrigerated glass case. A thick cable ran from a hidden power source somewhere.
I studied this masterpiece in open admiration for quite some time. I began to wonder how long it would take for her to melt if someone were to unplug her when no one was looking, and if her boobs would fall off before the rest of her succumbed. I eventually walked away before I succumbed to temptation.
We scored a couple of tickets for a one-night-only Fleetwood Mac concert in Memphis, and were ecstatic! They were good seats. We would be within spitting distance of my idol. I loved Stevie with all the passion in a young man’s heart. Hell, maybe, if I were offensive enough, she Would spit on me! I would have considered it an honor.
It was not to be. The SSgt in charge of us all heard the two of us talking about it, asked around to discover the date of the concert, and put us both on duty that night. Rather than see them go to waste, we gave the tickets to a couple of our guys ( we were both Cpl’s at the time).
They had a wonderful time, in our stead. They both swore that at one point Stevie looked directly at them in the middle of a song. They were escorted out by Security a few minutes later, so perhaps she did.
I don’t recall what we did to incur the SSgt’s disfavor. Perhaps we didn’t smooch his pooper with sufficient fervor. He seemed the type to require it, and we were irreverent.
SSgt, you were a dick then, and I’m sure you’re just as big of one now, if older. Those were third row seats, you asshole!
I’ll meet Stevie one day yet, I swear I will! We’re both a little older, and aren’t the kids we used to be, but I’d still crawl a hundred miles over leggos on my hands and knees with a monkey in a cowboy outfit riding side-saddle just to kiss her ass.
Momma understands. She says she’d trade me and a hundred dollars for a date with Michael Bolton.
Personally, I think that’s disloyal of her. I never said shit about getting rid of Her.
Looking back, there have been other occasions when I have had pause to question her motives. She slapped the shit out of me once as she passed me. I asked what that had been about. She said there had been a mosquito. We were inside at the time.
I once woke one night to find her standing at the side of the bed in the darkness, staring down at me, with one hand held behind her back.
At least I knew what I’d done that time. I slept in another room for a while. With the door locked.
That reminds me of my Gramp and Gram. They would have a sometimes stormy relationship during their more than seventy years of marriage, especially in their younger days.
Gramp worked in rural law enforcement for a time..........among other things. Even when he was not on duty, he was always subject to recall. A signal had been worked out between her and him, to get him to the house as quickly as possible, when she got word that he was needed: she would walk to the edge of the yard and fire a shotgun once into the air, if the matter was urgent, to bring him on the run from where he worked his fields.
She would do this for no reason at all sometimes, when she was mad at him about something, or sometimes purely out of spite.
He would come running, huffing and puffing, out of breath, to the house, sometimes from half a mile away or more, just to find that she’d done it because she felt like it, and for no other reason.
Gram was familiar with firearms. Years later, after Gramp had passed, she, alone without him, took to sleeping with her old revolver under her pillow again.
I find I don’t remember where Barry was actually from, if I ever knew at all. An impression comes to mind of Massachusetts, or somewhere thereabouts, but I know I could be wrong.
I remember Tennessee was nice that time of year. The days could be hot enough, but the nights were nice and cool, and quite pleasant. There were worse places to be.
Barry and I spent a month, off and on, when we had a little time, working on his car at the auto shop on base. We tore the motor down and rebuilt it from the bottom up; cleaned everything up real good, repaired what we could repair, replaced what we couldn’t with new.
We talked about a lot of things while we worked. Well, mostly Barry talked and I listened. Most of the time I didn’t understand a damn thing he was saying ( remember the IQ disparity?), but I nodded along in all the right places.
What the hell is quantum physics and string theory, anyway, and how the fuck can a person exist in the past, in the present, and in the future, all at the same time?
By the time we had it all back together and everything adjusted just right, that old car purred like a kitten, and just a gentle nudge on the accelerator would send the needle dancing. Barry loved that car, and was proud of the job we’d done. I was pretty proud of it myself. He said he couldn’t wait to take her out on the road.
Barry was riding high and life was good, man. He was axing every exam, his baby was in better condition than she had been in years, and everything was coming up roses.
That reminds me of an old ‘76 Monte Carlo I once owned, a big old boat of a car. I had traded my brother a Pontiac Sunbird and a hundred dollars for it. The Sunbird’s transmission blew a month later, but he’d already sold it to another guy for five hundred dollars, so he didn’t care.
Momma and I lost that car a month after we got to our next posting. A damned Gremlin, of all things, and a familiar shade of shit green (the head of AMC’s wife must have picked it out to match her teeth or some shit) plowed into us at speed. It was totaled. So, believe it or not, was the Monte Carlo. I’ve always though maybe it was related to The Dragon, that other piece-of-shit Gremlin I’d slain several months ago, and sacrificed itself for revenge.
A 2nd Lt was driving it. His bud, another Lt, showed up at the scene and started laying into me for being in my work uniform off base (though both of them were, too), and chewing my ass for not having a cover on.
The Highway Patrol Officer who had been first on the scene was a woman. She and Momma kind of looked at each other and kind of started laughing, and he kind of shut up.
We bought a pickup a week later. A month later, I wrecked that, too. There were some others over time. My latest one was a little over a year ago, and that one hurt most of all: a beautiful blood red ‘15 Camaro with an after-market exhaust package and those nice, wide hips that year’s model had. New twenty-inch tires with custom rims. I loved that car.
Momma said it was too much car for an old man. Maybe she was right. There wasn’t enough left of it to drive after running it off the freeway at 98 mph. I caught some nice air for thirty or forty feet when I hit that drainage culvert, though.
I wasn’t always Barry’s roommate while I was there. After a while we moved into a different barracks, for Marine personnel. There were three floors, with an NCO in charge of each one. I had the second.
It was there that I learned the hard way not to fight an already pissed-off Samoan:
There was screaming coming from down the hall one night. I ran out of my room and down the hall to see what was the matter.
We had this big Samoan LCpl, and he was beating the living shit out of his roommate. This kid was half his size, not that it would have mattered, and it was bad! He’d already been hit so hard so many times that the skin on his face was split open and bleeding in half a dozen places; forehead, cheekbones, eyebrows - any surface with bone under the skin. There was blood on the walls, man!
Some other guys had gathered at the doorway, but didn’t want any part of it. Hell, neither did I.
But these were my guys, so my responsibility. I nodded at one of the other guys and said “You’re with me.” I knew I couldn’t handle this guy alone. As it turned out, I should have taken some more - like All of them.
My guy nodded his assent, and we rushed the dude. It wasn’t pretty. At first we tried to wrestle him into submission. It didn’t work.
Then we started fighting him, or trying to. We were giving it everything we had, too. We didn’t make a dent. Instead, he beat the dogshit out of both of us. I distinctly remember, at one point, getting hit so hard that I slammed into and bounced off a wall locker several feet away from where I’d been standing.
As soon as we saw that the other guys had gotten his roomy out of the room and were taking him downstairs, we both did what Custer should have done and let Crazy Horse Have the fucking Little Big Horn. We were fallling over each other trying to get through the doorway.
A minute later, we were in the hallway outside the room, both bent over with our hands on our knees, trying to get our breath back, drooling blood and spit, and dripping blood on the floor from some other places, trying to figure out what the fuck just happened. The Cavalry had ridden to the rescue, and been massacred again.
Meanwhile Sitting Bull was still in the room, pacing up and down and yelling at somebody and taking swings at the air. The fucker, as far as we could see, didn’t seem to have a mark on him.
We were happy about that. It meant he was no longer thinking about us. No shit, if Sasquatch had started for the doorway? - I’d have taken off like a striped- ass ape, and I ain’t ashamed to admit it, ‘cause I know I would have been looking at my LCpl’s back - he was younger than me, and could move faster.
I had thought that I didn’t remember the extent of Kong’s roommates injuries, but, thinking on it, my mind brings up a flattened nose (we knew that), a crushed jawbone, and severe breakage in the bones around one eye - that’s what comes to mind. He took a lot of stitches, too, to put his face back together, but he would never look the same.
Godzilla was sent for a psych eval. Two days later I was inventorying his wall locker. It was stuffed, top to bottom, with cartons of cheap off-brand cigarettes. He had been bying them up cheap and tax-free on base, and selling them at a good profit to someone or someone’s out in town.
The reason he tried to beat his roomy to death? He wanted him to pray with him, and the kid didn’t want to do it. I shit you not.
We were both hurt and hurting for days, my LCpl and me, but nothing that wouldn’t heal.
I was sure I was going to lose some teeth. All the front ones, top and bottom, were loose to the point of falling out. I could move them around with my finger. Could have pulled them out if I wanted to.
Losing the bottom ones might not have been so bad. I knew a SSgt on Oki who had a removable bottom bridge in the front. That guy never lost a watermelon earring contest. He’d pop that bridge half-way out and use the fucker as a scoop to funnel the meat into his mouth, swallowing the whole time - three or four passes, and that shit was Gone, right down to the rind. Took less than five seconds. Couldn’t get anybody to bet against him after a while, no matter what odds we gave.
Loosing those uppers, though - I wouldn’t have wanted that. I like my corn on the cob.
As it was, I was eating soup for two weeks, waiting for everything to firm up again. But that was ok. I like soup.
Remember how I said Barry was happy as a pig in shit, and riding high on the hog?
That’s when the shit gets you, man. It’s like the saying: if everything’s going too well, it’s an ambush. This time Charlie was Mr. Fate.
Remember when he said he couldn’t wait to get his newly rebuilt baby out on the road? He didn’t wait long:
Took her into Memphis that first night. Got staggering drunk.
Picked up a hooker. She stole his wallet, and may have given him a dose of the clap ( results were still pending as of our last conversation).
Baby has gone to that Great Scrapyard In The Sky, among with the two major highway signs she took down on the way back to base.
Remember the Fleetwood Mac concert that the SSgt fucked us out of going to? It was known that a lot of the guys had attended, so there was a surprise piss test the next day. Everybody that had attended the concert passed. Barry came up positive.
When you’re riding too high, you’re heading for a low. And bad luck? - that shit always comes in threes.

2020.08.11 05:04 CapybaraWookiee [S] Capy's Survivor: All-Stars (S8)

Hello and welcome or welcome back to Capy's Survivor! This season, for the first time ever we are bringing back the best-of-the-best to play again! We are once again playing the game of outwitting, outplaying, and outlasting your fellow castaways, whether that be by flirtatious behavior, backstabbing your opponents, or making plenty of allies. This is Capy's Survivor: All-Stars!
THE TRIBES: Chapera Tribe:
Mogo Mogo Tribe:
Saboga Tribe:

The Season: Capy's Survivor: All-Stars
Episode 1: The camera pans out, and you see two boats headed towards the beach. On these boats are the best of the best players from the past 7 seasons of Capy’s Survivor. The first boat contains the females voted in by the fans for their gameplay in their seasons and their prowess in the Survivor community. From Borneo, 3rd place Hayley Smiths, and 5th place Karen “Big Karen” O’Neil. From the Australian Outback, 4th place Charlotte Small. From Africa, 3rd place Paige Astrauskas. From Thailand, Runner-up Samira Khan, and 5th place Audra Bolton. From the Amazon, winner Haven Parks. Finally, from Pearl Islands, winner Neleh Brown, and 5th place Fadia Lia Jensen. The second boat, containing the men, is riding the waves right behind them. From Borneo, winner Andy Chen and 4th place Shawn “The Syncopation” Voloski. From the Australian Outback, winner Anexo Sanchez. From Marquesas, winner Jordi “J-Bay” Baylor and 3rd place Michael “Houston” Houston. From the Amazon, 3rd place Alexander “Grey” Greymoore and 7th place Jake Jefferson. Finally, from Pearl Islands, 3rd place Benjamin “Ben” Castello and 6th place Bradley “Brad” Karev. All 18 castaways make their way off the boat and line up in front of the host. He congratulates them on being the first-ever returnees to the Survivor camps, and on being voted into the record-breaking 18 castaway cast of the All-Star season.
He then announces, unlike many people suspect, there will not be 2 tribes of 9 this season, but instead 3 tribes of 6. Everyone looks shocked, but it doesn’t last long, as the host states that he will start announcing tribe right then and there. Anexo, Big Karen, Audra, Houston, Haven, and Ben, you will be on the red Chapera tribe. Paige, J-Bay, Brad, Hayley, Andy, and Neleh, you will be on the green Mogo Mogo tribe. Finally, for the last tribe, Jake, Grey, Fadia, Samira, The Syncopation, and Charlotte, you will be on the yellow Saboga tribe. He then states that everyone can follow the producers back to their respective camps to start strategizing before their first immunity challenge.
At the Chapera camp, Anexo quickly allies with Big Karen and Neleh, as he knows they work the best in alliances and wants to get secured votes from the get-go. At the Mogo Mogo camp, things are getting a bit more interesting. As a superfan, Brad knew who he wanted to ally with the moment he knew his tribe. He approaches Hayley and Paige, as they are strategic and mental threats, and he knows there is a low chance they will backstab him, at least this early on in the game. He also approaches J-Bay, as he knows he is a loyal, and trustworthy person, who is also a former winner, so he wants to get his vote as well. Andy and Neleh form a winners alliance and hope that they can make a double-agent out of J-Bay. At the Saboga camp, everyone is being extremely careful, as everyone on this tribe doesn’t have the best reputation from their first seasons. Despite this, in her starstruck stupidness, Fadia forms a deal with the Syncopation to bring him to the final 2 with her, in exchange for his vote.
The Chapera and Saboga tribes win the first immunity challenges, meaning the Mogo Mogo tribe will be going to the first tribal council of season eight, and someone will be voted out. Anexo and Haven find out they have a lot in common, they both won their respective seasons, and they are both professional football (soccer) players. Anexo doesn’t want to put a target on his back by forming a big majority alliance this early, so he sticks with just getting Haven’s vote instead of allying with her. At the Saboga camp, The Syncopation is trying to get the trust levels high early and is helping out a lot around camp, which is helping him gain some much-needed popularity early on. At the Mogo Mogo camp, they are trying to figure out who to vote out. Brad and Paige talk about it and find that they are bonding well with each other, and think that is good, seeing how they allied. Taking into consideration their last season, the alliance of Paige, J-Bay, Brad, and Hayley decide that Andy is the bigger threat, at least compared to Neleh. Neleh attempts to flip the vote on Brad, stating that he would have won the season if it wasn’t for the rock draw and that he is a psychical and social threat. But J-Bay is too loyal to his alliance and doesn’t want to go to revote. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-2, Andy, the tribe has spoken.
Episode 2: The Mogo Mogo tribe wins the reward challenge, winning themselves a tarp and some blankets. But despite their win in the reward challenge, the Saboga and the Chapera tribes win immunity again, sending Mogo Mogo to their second tribal in a row. The early alliance of Hayley, Paige, Brad, and J-Bay dissolves, as they know moving forward they can’t be a four-person alliance in a four-person tribe. At the Saboga camp, The Syncopation is already stirring the pot by causing an argument with Jake and then blaming it on him. Back at the Mogo Mogo camp, Paige and Brad, since they’ve already bonded, decided to stick together for the vote, and vote for Neleh, they approach J-Bay with the offer, but he thinks Paige is a bigger threat, and he decides to vote for her. Hayley easily leaves her former alliance and approaches Neleh and J-Bay with an offer. In exchange for temporary safety, they vote with her for Brad, they agree, but J-Bay wants to still have Hayley’s trust, whilst keeping Brad in the game. At tribal council, there is a tie between Brad and Neleh. J-Bay, wanting to save his former ally, switches his vote of Paige to Neleh. At tribal council, by a vote of 2-2-1, and a revote of 2-1, Neleh, the tribe has spoken.
Episode 3: The Mogo Mogo tribe and the Chapera tribe wins the reward challenge, winning themselves tarps, blankets, and wine. The Chapera tribe and the Mogo Mogo tribe win immunity as well, sending Saboga to tribal council. At the Chapera camp, just like his original season, he is causing drama around camp, and rubbing his tribe the wrong way. At the Mogo Mogo camp, Paige isolates herself from the rest of the tribe, because she hurt her toe at the last challenge. At the Saboga camp, Fadia is trying to gain everyones trust before tribal, in attempts to save herself. She manages to ally with Charlotte. Samira approaches Grey and Charlotte with an offer, in exchange for her vote, they vote Jake out with her, they agree to the offer. The Syncopation and Fadia agree with Jake to vote for Samira. Fadia tells Charlotte about this, and Charlotte accepts the offer. But afterward, she goes to Samira and Grey saying that they are targeting Samira. They decide to go with a risky plan, they will force a rock draw, and then hope The Syncopation goes home, as that is who they are targeting by doing this, or Fadia, which would affect The Syncopation because she is his only ally. At tribal council, there is a 3-3 tie between Jake and Samira. Both the participants state their cases. The revote is a 2-2 tie. Due to this, the host calls up Fadia, The Syncopation, Charlotte, and Grey to draw rocks. They all do so, and the host asks them to flip them over. At tribal council, by the draw of the purple rock, Fadia, the tribe has spoken.
Episode 4: The Mogo Mogo and the Saboga tribes win the reward, winning themselves “Capy’s Survivor Bathrooms,” which includes a shower, toilet, mouthwash, shampoo, soap, toilet paper, toothbrushes, and toothpaste. The Mogo Mogo and the Chapera tribes win immunity. At the Chapera camp, as they have been doing since the game started, Haven and Anexo are bonding. It seems like they’re both trying to set up another dynamic duo to make it to the end. But will that work in All-Stars? At the Mogo Mogo camp, Hayley is using the classic strategy of doing more work around camp to gain people’s trust.
At the Saboga camp, they are trying to figure out who to send home. The Syncopation approaches Charlotte with an offer. If she votes with him tonight for Samira, he will keep her safe for as long as he can. She agrees to this offer. Jake, Samira, and Grey approach Charlotte claiming that they are voting for The Syncopation and that she could be safe if she votes with them. She agrees. Charlotte tells The Syncopation about this, and all he is thinking is a big mistake. The Syncopation approaches Jake, Samira, and Grey and he tells them right away that Charlotte told him about their plan, trying to paint Charlotte as untrustworthy. He also tells them that she is a more strategic and psychical threat than he is and that they should consider what might happen come the merge. He then goes and tells Charlotte that he convinced Jake and Grey to vote for Samira, so she agrees. At tribal council, by a vote of 3-2, Charlotte, the tribe has spoken.
Episode 5: Mogo Mogo and Chapera win the reward challenge, winning themselves fishing spears, hooks, and scuba masks. But, after the challenge, the host doesn’t let them leave the challenge area. He announces a new twist. That the last place tribe, Saboga will be dissolving and evenly spread into the remaining 2 tribes. Jake, Samira, The Syncopation, and Grey draw buffs. Jake immediately draws the red one, meaning he is on the Chapera tribe. Also meaning that Samira, Grey, and the Syncopation are all on the green Mogo Mogo tribe. The new tribes are Anexo, Audra, Ben, Haven, Jake, Big Karen, and Houston on the Chapera tribe, and Grey, Brad, Hayley, J-Bay, Samira, and the Syncopation on the Mogo Mogo tribe.
The Chapera tribe wins the immunity challenge. At the Mogo Mogo camp, The Syncopation immediately starts making bonds, talking with Brad, hoping to get his vote. Hayley and Paige approach Brad and tells him they are voting for J-Bay as he is a social threat. They ask him to approach anybody else to get their vote. Brad approaches The Syncopation with this plan, and The Syncopation makes his plan for tribal. He rounds up Brad, J-Bay, and his alliance and tells them that they will vote Hayley out, as she is targeting J-Bay, and she and Paige are not to be trusted, and that they need to go as soon as possible. At tribal council, by a vote of 5-2, Hayley, the tribe has spoken.
Episode 6: The Chapera tribe wins the reward challenge, they win shish kebabs and more items in the basket they used in the reward challenge. The Chapera also wins the immunity challenges, making this the sixth time in a row that Chapera has won immunity, which is a new record for a tribe. At the Chapera camp, Houston, in an attempt to make up for his drama-causing ways begins helping more around camp, which he thinks is well-received. J-Bay and Brad bond, because they decide to stick together in case they ever need to vote out the Saboga alliance. The Syncopation approaches Brad and J-Bay and claims he talked with Grey, and they decided to vote out Samira. They agree with this and decide to vote with them. In reality, he got his alliance and Paige together, and they decided that J-Bay is a major social threat and that getting him out would also effect Brad because they seem close. Also, the fact that he is a previous winner, as he won Marquesas. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-2, J-Bay, the tribe has spoken.
Episode 7: The Mogo Mogo tribe wins immunity, sending Chapera to their first tribal council. They win a barbeque on a yacht and can kidnap someone to save from tribal council. They kidnap Ben, as he is a challenge beast, and he will be a good ally to have come the merge because of that. They also assume he is making it to the merge, as he played on the most recent season, and probably isn’t seen as a threat. Samira isolates herself, trying to decide if she wants to stick with The Syncopation or not because he is untrustworthy, but you also don’t want to be on his bad side. At the Chapera camp, they are trying to decide who their first-person eliminated is going to be. Anexo, Big Karen, and Haven approach Jake and Houston saying that if they vote out Audra with them, as she is a challenge beast and untrustworthy, they will be safe, and they will just vote out Ben instead of them. Audra, also approaches Houston and Jake, trying to convince them that Haven is the worst threat. At tribal council, by a vote of 5-1, Audra, the tribe has spoken.
Episode 8: The Chapera tribe wins reward. The Mogo Mogo tribe wins the immunity challenge, sending Chapera to their second tribal council in a row. In a classic move, The Syncopation starts helping more around camp, trying to earn the respect of his tribemates. At the Chapera camp, Haven, Anexo, and Big Karen decide that Houston is their biggest threat right now, as he is a major social threat and he thinks very strategically. They approach Ben with the offer of safety, he accepts. Houston and Jake rally for Ben to be eliminated, as they were promised that. Ben just sticks with the 3, even though now they come off as untrustworthy because he doesn’t want to be eliminated or have a bigger target on his back. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-2, Houston, the tribe has spoken.
Episode 9: The host calls the tribes to the challenge area. All of them are expecting the merge. But instead, the host announces that there will be a tribe swap. Anexo and Jake stayed on Chapera, whilst Paige and Grey stayed on Mogo Mogo. Everyone else swapped tribes. The new tribes are as followed, on Chapera is Anexo, Brad, Jake, Samira, and The Syncopation. On Mogo Mogo is Grey, Ben, Haven, Big Karen, and Paige.
At the Chapera camp, Jake, Samira, and The Syncopation ally. All of them also agree that they will form a 5-person alliance for the merge. Big Karen and Haven form an alliance and vow to align again with Anexo if they all make it to the merge. They also decide to align with Ben, mainly for votes. Just like the Chapera tribe, they decide to all ally with each other for votes come the merge. The Mogo Mogo tribe wins the immunity challenge. After their immunity loss, the 5-person alliance that they formed becomes even weaker than is already were. While the 3-person alliance with Ben strengthens. Samira and The Syncopation decide it will be best to get Anexo out while they can, as he is a challenge beast and might win a lot of challenges once the merge comes. They also think that it is best because that will take a toll on Haven and Big Karen’s game if they voted out their closest ally. Anexo approaches Jake saying that they are voting out Samira, as he is a social threat. But little did they know, he was already approached by the Syncopation, and he “misted” him into voting Anexo out, even though he is a voting ally of Anexo. This is also why Anexo assumes he is safe with Jake’s vote. At tribal council, by a vote of 3-2, Anexo, the has spoken.
Episode 10: The host calls the tribes to the challenge area, and announces what they all were expecting. He announces the merge, and he also congratulates the castaways for being the first people to make it to 2 merges. Grey, Ben, Brad, Haven, Jake, Big Karen, Paige, Samira, and The Syncopation merge into a tribe they name Chaboga Mogo, made by combining all three of the original tribe names.
Big Karen and Haven form a dynamic duo, hoping to get more allies for votes. Grey and The Syncopation also form a dynamic duo (from hell), and hope for the same as Haven and Big Karen. Big Karen and Haven also form a strong alliance with Ben, as a final three pact. Brad and Paige also form a duo. Grey, Jake, Samira, and The Syncopation form a voting alliance. Jake, Samira, and The Syncopation also form a voting alliance with Brad. They send Grey off to ally with Ben, Big Karen, Paige, and Haven to gain their respect.
The Syncopation wins the reward challenge. He wins an overnight stay at a resort. He shares it with Haven and Jake, as he thinks he hasn’t gained their full trust yet. The Syncopation and Samira win the immunity challenge. Haven and Big Karen fight over Karen getting off her butt and helping set up their new camp. Due to this, Big Karen rallies to have her ally Haven eliminated. Grey, Jake, Samira, and The Syncopation agree with her, as they want the least amount of drama in camp. Ben and Brad also agree for the same reasons. Haven convinces Paige to vote for Ben, as he is a psychical threat. Even though she approached the Big 4 alliance, she is rejected, as she is also a psychical threat, as well as strategic and a former winner. At tribal council, by a vote of 7-2, Haven, the tribe has spoken.
Episode 11: Ben, Samira, Paige, and Big Karen win the reward challenge, winning video calls from home, they are also the only four who can compete for individual immunity. Big Karen beats out Samira, Paige, and Ben in the immunity challenge. Brad and Ben have a major fight, mainly over Ben not being as helpful as Brad would like, but we know this is because Ben’s true allies are Big Karen and Paige. Ben rounds up his alliance, and Grey and tells them they will be voting for Samira, as she is a social threat, and she will become somewhat of a silent killer if they don’t eliminate her. He also approaches his close ally Brad, despite their recent fight. He acts like he is good with that plan, but in reality, he has approached Samira, The Syncopation, and Jake, and tells them to vote for Ben, as he is causing drama, and is a challenge beast. They agree. At tribal council, there is a 4-4 tie between Ben and Samira. After some thinking, Brad thinks he will do what is best for his game personally. The revote is Samira goes home by a vote of 4-4, and a revote of 4-2.
Episode 12: Ben wins the reward challenge. Grey wins immunity, spoiling Ben’s plan of voting him out. The Syncopation approaches Paige, Brad, Jake, Grey, and Big Karen with the idea of voting Ben out, as he is a challenge beast, and is good socially. They agree, but Grey approaches Ben telling him about this, Ben convinces his close ally, Big Karen, to vote with them for Brad. He also has Grey approach Paige. But she knows too well, and she knows Ben is more of a threat, especially to her strategy of gameplay than Brad. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-3, Ben, the tribe has spoken.
Episode 13: Big Karen wins the reward and decides to share it with The Syncopation, in attempts to try to ally with him as she did in Borneo. Grey wins yet another immunity challenge. The Syncopation is planning on targeting Big Karen, as she is a social threat. He approaches Jake, Paige, and Brad. They agree that she should be the one going. Grey also approaches Paige and Brad, alongside Big Karen, and tells them that The Syncopation has to go. They agree, but who will they side with. Well, it may not matter. As last brought up in Episode 3, it is revealed that Paige actually fractured her toe and has been getting checked on by the meds. It will be needing surgery, and will not be able to continue the game. At tribal council, the host announces that there will be no vote, as Paige has been medevaced.
Episode 14: The Syncopation wins the reward challenge, and shares it with Big Karen, trying to gain even more of her trust. Big Karen wins the immunity challenge. Jake is rubbing the tribe the wrong way, as he is acting as if he is the best player ever because he made it farther than his last season. But nonetheless, Grey approaches his allies Big Karen and Jake and tells them they need to vote out Brad right away, that he is a psychical threat and a social threat, and he knows what he is doing strategically. They agree, he also tells them to approach Brad and tell them they are voting for Grey, so they don’t somehow cause a tie. Brad agrees. The Syncopation approaches Brad and Big Karen and tells them that he is voting for Jake. At tribal council, by a vote of 3-2, Brad, the tribe has spoken.
Finale, Part 1: Big Karen wins immunity once again. The alliance of Big Karen, The Syncopation, and Grey decide they are voting for Jake. But The Syncopation approaches him and tells him they are voting for Grey. At tribal council, by a vote of 3-1, Jake, the tribe has spoken.
Finale, Part 2: They did it, the Trio from Hell, Grey, The Syncopation, and Big Karen made it to the final 3. Big Karen wins the final immunity, and even though it is a tough decision, she decides to bring Grey to the final tribal council, as The Syncopation has simply made too many allies throughout the season. At tribal council, by a vote of 1-0, The Syncopation, the tribe has spoken.
The Reunion:>! At the Reunion, both Grey and Big Karen state their cases. By a vote of 5-2 the winner of Capy’s Survivor: All-Stars is… Alexander Greymoore!!<

2020.08.04 12:49 finnagains Corporate press promotes Susan Rice as Biden running mate (r/HarpiesBizarre) 4 Aug 2020

Over the past week a curious “groundswell” has taken place in the American media. Former Obama national security advisor Susan Rice, someone who has never run for political office and is largely unknown to the American public, has been promoted in a series of press reports as a likely choice of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to be his running mate.
The Washington Post led off the barrage with its July 25 profile, headlined, “Susan Rice’s advantage: A long work history with Biden. Former Obama official has emerged as an underdog VP pick.” The article noted that for four years, 2013–2016, Biden frequently began his work day with a national security briefing from Rice, given jointly to the president and vice president in the Oval Office. The two had offices in the same part of the West Wing, and Biden would drop in to Rice’s office at will.
Two days later, Ryan Lizza in the Hill wrote: “The elusive hunt for Biden’s Biden has recently pushed Susan Rice into the top tier of candidates. As Obama’s national security adviser for his entire second term, Rice and Biden worked closely together on an almost daily basis, making her the only potential running mate who Biden knows so intimately… very few of the other candidates come close to meeting that test…”
Lizza went on to quote an unnamed Democratic strategist who described Biden as focused on foreign policy issues, particularly conflicts with rival great powers, for which he would need assistance. To the question who would fill the bill, the strategist answered, “Susan Rice: ready on Day One for Russia and China.”
The same day, the New York Times ran a flattering profile under the headline, “Susan Rice Wants to Run for Office. Will Her First Campaign Be for VP?” The article noted Rice’s interest in a Senate race in Maine, where she has family ties, although she ultimately decided not to challenge incumbent Republican Susan Collins. The Times wrote that Rice has been demonized by right-wing Republicans for statements she made on television about the attack on a US facility in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012, in which the US ambassador and three others were killed.
More categorical was the headline in Politico for an article posted on the evening of July 27: “‘It’s absolutely serious:’ Susan Rice vaults to the top of the VP heap.” This account centered on Rice’s relationship with Biden during the Obama administration, concluding that “allies of others being eyed for the vice presidency are increasingly worried about Rice, especially because of her close ties to Biden, who, as Obama’s No. 2, had an office just steps away from hers.”
From the Rwanda genocide to drone missile assassinations
Susan Rice, now 55, has spent her entire career in the area of US foreign policy, beginning as a policy aide to Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis in 1988, when she was 23. She worked for eight years each in the Clinton and Obama administrations, either in the State Department or on the National Security Council. When Republicans were in the White House, she was part of the Democratic foreign policy apparatus in exile, working for McKinsey & Co., Intellibridge Inc. and the Brookings Institution, as well as advising Democratic presidential candidates John Kerry and Obama.
Rice is the scion of a black bourgeois family in Washington D.C., where her father Emmett, an economics professor, became the second African American governor of the Federal Reserve, a prominent local banker and member of several corporate boards. Her mother Lois was a longtime executive with the College Board. She helped establish the Pell Grant program in the Department of Education and was a board member or corporate adviser at Firestone, McGraw-Hill, Control Data Corporation and Fleet Bank. She also was a trustee of the Center for Naval Analyses and was named by President Bill Clinton to the Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board.
Clinton appointed Susan Rice to his National Security Council in 1993 and she had principal responsibility for Africa during such disasters as the Rwanda genocide. She was named assistant secretary of state for African Affairs during Clinton’s second term (1997–2001), and was criticized for her close ties to authoritarian rulers such as Paul Kagame in Rwanda and Meles Zenawi in Ethiopia. She was in charge of US policy in Africa in 1998, when twin bombings hit the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania and Clinton ordered a retaliatory missile strike that destroyed a pharmaceutical factory in Sudan that had no connection to the attacks.
When Obama won the presidency in November 2008, Rice was a top foreign policy adviser, with wide support in the military-intelligence apparatus and big business. She was named US ambassador to the United Nations and confirmed unanimously by the Senate.
As the critcs wrote: While often touted as the first African-American woman to serve as US ambassador to the UN, in reality Rice’s role was in direct continuity with figures such as John Bolton and John Negroponte, appointed by the George W. Bush administration with the aim of bullying other nations into acquiescing to US demands…
Rice was among the closest advisers to Obama, dating back to when he was a US senator, and was one of the first prominent members of the Democratic Party foreign policy establishment to join his 2008 presidential campaign. The affinity between the two gave the lie to Obama’s pretense then of representing some kind of antiwar alternative to the Bush administration.
In the years before Obama’s election, Rice was part of the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), a right-wing Democratic think tank that advocated the continued occupation of Iraq, a military “surge” in Afghanistan and a more aggressive military posture toward China. She publicly supported the US war of aggression against Iraq as well as the “weapons of mass destruction” pretext provided by Bush.
Within the Obama administration, she became one of the leading advocates for imperialist intervention in Libya and Syria, on the pretext of pursuing “humanitarian” and “democratic” aims. She was a strong supporter of the Zionist regime in Israel, denouncing as “anti-Israeli crap” any gestures at the United Nations in support of the Palestinians.
In September 2012, after the attack on the US facility in Benghazi, Libya, that left the US ambassador and three other Americans dead, Rice was sent out on the Sunday television interview programs to give the official story that a spontaneous local uprising, not an organized terrorist attack, was the cause of the disaster. The truth, which the Obama administration wished to conceal, was that its policy of relying on Islamic fundamentalist groups to overthrow the Gaddafi regime in Libya had led to “blowback,” as the Al Qaeda-linked groups turned their guns on the US mission.
With congressional Republicans seizing on the Benghazi affair as a weapon against Hillary Clinton, then the US secretary of state and the expected Democratic presidential candidate in 2016, Rice took the fall. She withdrew her name from consideration to replace Clinton and in July 2013 was named Obama’s national security adviser, a position that did not require Senate confirmation but gave her considerable authority in coordinating US foreign policy.
Among the imperialist crimes with which her tenure was associated were the ongoing military interventions in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan; the ultra-right coup in Ukraine that overthrew the elected pro-Russian government; the escalating US-backed war by Saudi Arabia in Yemen; mounting US pressure on China, including the elevation of the South China Sea to the level of a major international crisis; and the savage economic squeeze on Iran that produced the 2015 nuclear agreement.
Particularly significant was the ongoing campaign of drone missile assassinations, initially in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, then extended to Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and Libya, and eventually including nearly all of North Africa. White House officials spoke about “terror Tuesdays,” where Obama, Rice and then-chief counterterrorism aide John Brennan—later CIA director—would go over death lists and make their selections.
As opponents explained in 2016, the National Security Council, where Rice held sway, played a central role in the drone missile murder campaign:
The role of the NSC in this process is particularly important. This body has quadrupled in size under the Bush and Obama administrations, as day-to-day direction of national security policy has been concentrated in the White House. Besides giving the president and his closest aides a direct line to the military-intelligence apparatus, the NSC insulates the drone assassination program from outside scrutiny.
Considered part of the White House, the NSC is exempt from any congressional scrutiny as well as the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act, under the interpretation of “executive privilege” embraced by Bush and Obama and accepted by Democrats and Republicans in Congress. NSC officials, up to and including current National Security Adviser Susan Rice, cannot be subpoenaed by a congressional committee or otherwise held accountable for their actions.
What a Rice selection would mean
While its article boosting a possible Rice selection was not the first to appear, the New York Times has led the way in this campaign, setting the agenda, as is frequently the case, for the corporate media as a whole. On July 21, the Times op-ed page published a column by Rice herself, under the headline, “Take the Next Step Toward Racial Justice,” in which she postured as an opponent of police violence and “systemic racism.”
There is little to say about the content of Rice’s column, filled with vague soporifics about improving education, dismantling structural barriers and achieving “racial justice,” all without any fundamental change in the capitalist system, which of course goes unmentioned as the root cause of police repression and racist oppression.
This topic is, of course, an awkward one for someone whose role in government has been John Brennan in a pantsuit. Rice has never had any public association with struggles for democratic rights or against police brutality. Quite the contrary: she was well known as a friend of right-wing African dictators, so long as they toed the line on US foreign policy demands.
Her tenure at the NSC began at the time of the coup by Egyptian military dictator Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, warmly embraced—after a few perfunctory “human rights” noises—by the Obama administration.
But Rice has been attempting to show some “progressive” side in media commentaries over the past few months in an effort to minimize any criticism from the Sanders wing of the Democratic Party should she become the vice-presidential nominee.
She hardly needs to bother. Bernie Sanders has never displayed a trace of independence from the imperialist foreign policy of the Obama-Biden administration, or the Clinton administration before it, bringing out his “antiwar” posturing only when a Republican was in the White House.
In 2020, after closing up his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination and endorsing Biden, Sanders set up six joint committees staffed by Biden and Sanders supporters to work out Democratic Party policy in six key areas. None of them concerned foreign policy—signaling that the incoming Biden administration will have a free hand to pursue its right-wing agenda of military build-up against Russia and China and the forceful assertion of US imperialist interests around the world.
If Biden chooses Rice as his running mate, it will allow him to satisfy the gender and racial warriors of the identity politics wing of the Democratic Party without making the slightest concession to the working class. On the contrary, by selecting the Democratic equivalent of Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, an African American advocate and apologist for American corporate interests up to and including imperialist war, Biden would be sending a signal to Wall Street and the military-intelligence apparatus that his administration will be absolutely ruthless in its defense of the global interests of American imperialism.

The Times wrote that Rice has been demonized by right-wing Republicans for statements she made on television about the attack on a US facility in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012, in which the US ambassador and three others were killed.
More categorical was the headline in Politico for an article posted on the evening of July 27: “‘It’s absolutely serious:’ Susan Rice vaults to the top of the VP heap.” This account centered on Rice’s relationship with Biden during the Obama administration, concluding that “allies of others being eyed for the vice presidency are increasingly worried about Rice, especially because of her close ties to Biden, who, as Obama’s No. 2, had an office just steps away from hers.”
From the Rwanda genocide to drone missile assassinations
Susan Rice, now 55, has spent her entire career in the area of US foreign policy, beginning as a policy aide to Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis in 1988, when she was 23. She worked for eight years each in the Clinton and Obama administrations, either in the State Department or on the National Security Council. When Republicans were in the White House, she was part of the Democratic foreign policy apparatus in exile, working for McKinsey & Co., Intellibridge Inc. and the Brookings Institution, as well as advising Democratic presidential candidates John Kerry and Obama.
Rice is the scion of a black bourgeois family in Washington D.C., where her father Emmett, an economics professor, became the second African American governor of the Federal Reserve, a prominent local banker and member of several corporate boards. Her mother Lois was a longtime executive with the College Board. She helped establish the Pell Grant program in the Department of Education and was a board member or corporate adviser at Firestone, McGraw-Hill, Control Data Corporation and Fleet Bank. She also was a trustee of the Center for Naval Analyses and was named by President Bill Clinton to the Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board.
Clinton appointed Susan Rice to his National Security Council in 1993 and she had principal responsibility for Africa during such disasters as the Rwanda genocide. She was named assistant secretary of state for African Affairs during Clinton’s second term (1997–2001), and was criticized for her close ties to authoritarian rulers such as Paul Kagame in Rwanda and Meles Zenawi in Ethiopia. She was in charge of US policy in Africa in 1998, when twin bombings hit the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania and Clinton ordered a retaliatory missile strike that destroyed a pharmaceutical factory in Sudan that had no connection to the attacks.
When Obama won the presidency in November 2008, Rice was a top foreign policy adviser, with wide support in the military-intelligence apparatus and big business. She was named US ambassador to the United Nations and confirmed unanimously by the Senate.
As the critcs wrote: While often touted as the first African-American woman to serve as US ambassador to the UN, in reality Rice’s role was in direct continuity with figures such as John Bolton and John Negroponte, appointed by the George W. Bush administration with the aim of bullying other nations into acquiescing to US demands…
Rice was among the closest advisers to Obama, dating back to when he was a US senator, and was one of the first prominent members of the Democratic Party foreign policy establishment to join his 2008 presidential campaign. The affinity between the two gave the lie to Obama’s pretense then of representing some kind of antiwar alternative to the Bush administration.
In the years before Obama’s election, Rice was part of the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), a right-wing Democratic think tank that advocated the continued occupation of Iraq, a military “surge” in Afghanistan and a more aggressive military posture toward China. She publicly supported the US war of aggression against Iraq as well as the “weapons of mass destruction” pretext provided by Bush.
Within the Obama administration, she became one of the leading advocates for imperialist intervention in Libya and Syria, on the pretext of pursuing “humanitarian” and “democratic” aims. She was a strong supporter of the Zionist regime in Israel, denouncing as “anti-Israeli crap” any gestures at the United Nations in support of the Palestinians.
In September 2012, after the attack on the US facility in Benghazi, Libya, that left the US ambassador and three other Americans dead, Rice was sent out on the Sunday television interview programs to give the official story that a spontaneous local uprising, not an organized terrorist attack, was the cause of the disaster. The truth, which the Obama administration wished to conceal, was that its policy of relying on Islamic fundamentalist groups to overthrow the Gaddafi regime in Libya had led to “blowback,” as the Al Qaeda-linked groups turned their guns on the US mission.
With congressional Republicans seizing on the Benghazi affair as a weapon against Hillary Clinton, then the US secretary of state and the expected Democratic presidential candidate in 2016, Rice took the fall. She withdrew her name from consideration to replace Clinton and in July 2013 was named Obama’s national security adviser, a position that did not require Senate confirmation but gave her considerable authority in coordinating US foreign policy.
Among the imperialist crimes with which her tenure was associated were the ongoing military interventions in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan; the ultra-right coup in Ukraine that overthrew the elected pro-Russian government; the escalating US-backed war by Saudi Arabia in Yemen; mounting US pressure on China, including the elevation of the South China Sea to the level of a major international crisis; and the savage economic squeeze on Iran that produced the 2015 nuclear agreement.
Particularly significant was the ongoing campaign of drone missile assassinations, initially in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, then extended to Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and Libya, and eventually including nearly all of North Africa. White House officials spoke about “terror Tuesdays,” where Obama, Rice and then-chief counterterrorism aide John Brennan—later CIA director—would go over death lists and make their selections.
As opponents explained in 2016, the National Security Council, where Rice held sway, played a central role in the drone missile murder campaign:
The role of the NSC in this process is particularly important. This body has quadrupled in size under the Bush and Obama administrations, as day-to-day direction of national security policy has been concentrated in the White House. Besides giving the president and his closest aides a direct line to the military-intelligence apparatus, the NSC insulates the drone assassination program from outside scrutiny.
Considered part of the White House, the NSC is exempt from any congressional scrutiny as well as the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act, under the interpretation of “executive privilege” embraced by Bush and Obama and accepted by Democrats and Republicans in Congress. NSC officials, up to and including current National Security Adviser Susan Rice, cannot be subpoenaed by a congressional committee or otherwise held accountable for their actions.
What a Rice selection would mean
While its article boosting a possible Rice selection was not the first to appear, the New York Times has led the way in this campaign, setting the agenda, as is frequently the case, for the corporate media as a whole. On July 21, the Times op-ed page published a column by Rice herself, under the headline, “Take the Next Step Toward Racial Justice,” in which she postured as an opponent of police violence and “systemic racism.”
There is little to say about the content of Rice’s column, filled with vague soporifics about improving education, dismantling structural barriers and achieving “racial justice,” all without any fundamental change in the capitalist system, which of course goes unmentioned as the root cause of police repression and racist oppression.
This topic is, of course, an awkward one for someone whose role in government has been John Brennan in a pantsuit. Rice has never had any public association with struggles for democratic rights or against police brutality. Quite the contrary: she was well known as a friend of right-wing African dictators, so long as they toed the line on US foreign policy demands.
Her tenure at the NSC began at the time of the coup by Egyptian military dictator Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, warmly embraced—after a few perfunctory “human rights” noises—by the Obama administration.
But Rice has been attempting to show some “progressive” side in media commentaries over the past few months in an effort to minimize any criticism from the Sanders wing of the Democratic Party should she become the vice-presidential nominee.
She hardly needs to bother. Bernie Sanders has never displayed a trace of independence from the imperialist foreign policy of the Obama-Biden administration, or the Clinton administration before it, bringing out his “antiwar” posturing only when a Republican was in the White House.
In 2020, after closing up his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination and endorsing Biden, Sanders set up six joint committees staffed by Biden and Sanders supporters to work out Democratic Party policy in six key areas. None of them concerned foreign policy—signaling that the incoming Biden administration will have a free hand to pursue its right-wing agenda of military build-up against Russia and China and the forceful assertion of US imperialist interests around the world.
If Biden chooses Rice as his running mate, it will allow him to satisfy the gender and racial warriors of the identity politics wing of the Democratic Party without making the slightest concession to the working class. On the contrary, by selecting the Democratic equivalent of Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, an African American advocate and apologist for American corporate interests up to and including imperialist war, Biden would be sending a signal to Wall Street and the military-intelligence apparatus that his administration will be absolutely ruthless in its defense of the global interests of American imperialism.

Reasons Why I Still Play FM08 – The First Five Years (Year 1, Part 2)
WARNING: VERY LONG POST. READ AT YOUR OWN LEISURE.

https://preview.redd.it/byiz3alsqfd51.png?width=616&format=png&auto=webp&s=6b2b46167c4e53216c515a2601366a0f68e39555
NB: This is part TWO of a TWO-part series. If you haven’t yet read part ONE, please click here.
Sunday 1st June 2008
The leagues are complete, the European competitions are decided, it’s time to see the damage done.
Premier League
We’ll start with the Premier League and, as expected, Man Utd held on to their strong advantage to retain the title, the top-scoring Reds finishing 1 goal and 6 points ahead of Arsenal. Liverpool and Man City claim the remaining Champions League places, whilst Portsmouth finished a point ahead of Everton to claim the first available UEFA Cup place.
Fulham would’ve needed a mathematical miracle to have survived relegation, and Middlesbrough were already related going into the final day so a draw with Wigan meant little to them, but Wigan were already safe thanks in part to what was essentially a relegation play-off match between Birmingham and Sunderland. A win for either team would see them survive but a draw would not be enough for Sunderland.
David Connolly stepped up and scored a highly contentious goal for Sunderland in a tightly contested game. Birmingham City couldn’t believe what they believed was an offside goal was allowed to stand and replays have since shown that they may have had every right to feel aggrieved about that goal. They did not, however, do enough to get back into the match and although an equaliser would’ve seen them survive, they could not muster one and now drop down into the Championship.
Kevin Doyle has the last laugh in his ongoing feud with Leroy, pipping him to the Golden Boot for Reading with 25 goals to Lita’s 24. Andy Johnson rounds off the top 3 with 23 goals for Everton. Cani’s 16 assists see him take the non-existent playmaker of the year award, 3 clear of John Carew. I shall forever call this the Playmaker Award now.
The league table is as follows:

https://preview.redd.it/a1ngygktqfd51.png?width=844&format=png&auto=webp&s=5c2369d745ec5ef9adca0149a6452b39ac24ba94
Overachievers: Man City, Derby County, West Ham
Underachievers: Tottenham, Chelsea, Bolton, Middlesbrough
West Ham seal European football through the Euro Vase, aka Intertoto Cup, by virtue of the fact that apparently neither Everton or Chelsea, nor Blackburn bothered to apply.
As we know, Portsmouth secured European football through 5th place but wait… Newcastle and Derby are also in Europe?!
This can only mean one thing…
FA Cup
Derby comfortably defeated Blackburn 3-1 at Wembley while Newcastle played out a dramatic 3-3 draw with Portsmouth. The game would be settled by penalties, with Portsmouth scoring their first 2 and Newcastle missing them both. Nerves got the better of the Pompey players as Newcastle scored their next 3 and Portsmouth missed all of them. Incredible scenes in the capital.

https://preview.redd.it/8ijwjicuqfd51.png?width=841&format=png&auto=webp&s=f088b1a22b1aa57508725805c0cf6cc968b82901
Not to be outdone, Derby and Newcastle would contest a fierce final themselves. James Milner wins the header from the goalkeeper’s free kick to nod down to Barton who returns a through ball for Milner to slot home in the 22nd minute. However, Derby would hit back on the brink of half-time, in part thanks for a huge stroke of good fortune: David Jones’ free kick on the edge of the box taking a huge deflection off the wall to wrong-foot Shay Given.
Deadlocked at 90 minutes, the game moved into extra time. More free kick fortune for Derby as Ulrik Yttergård Jenssen’s freekick deflects off the wall as well and into the path of Daniel Fredheim Holm who lashed home high into the net. However with the clock pushing 122 minutes, Derby go on the attack instead of taking it the corner flag. They would be punished with a flowing Newcastle counterattack, Nicky Butt feeding Derek Boateng who flights a ball to the back post for an unmarked Claudio Caçapa to nod home a dramatic late equaliser.
The penalty shootout would be quick and painless. Derby’s players, mentally crushed from conceding such a late goal and dissolved of all confidence, missed all 3 of their penalties to concede the FA Cup to Newcastle United.

https://preview.redd.it/ee35dfnvqfd51.png?width=842&format=png&auto=webp&s=592ce72a26e286ece94ed1939cc7a56cb3889c6a
Consolation for Derby is that, because Newcastle already secured European football through their League Cup victory, they will also be playing in Europe thanks to being FA Cup runners up. Incredible for a team that was predicted to be relegated this season.
Championship
Charlton return to the top division, hanging on to top spot despite losing to West Brom on a final day, as Sheffield United could only muster a draw at home to Southampton. Watford, West Brom, QPR and Southampton make up the playoff hopefuls whilst Hull, Sheffield Wednesday and Colchester all drop down into League One. All three relegated teams’ fates were sealed before the final day, so Hull’s 2-0 win at home to Ipswich was in vain.
Stoke and Crystal Palace played each other in a play-off decider, with Stoke knowing that any win would secure them 6th place. Palace needed a win against Stoke and a favour from title-chasing Sheffield United against Southampton to leapfrog both Stoke and Southampton into 6th. As such, Southampton needed to better Stoke’s result to secure the playoffs. As it transpired, Crystal Palace’s dramatic 90th minute winner away to Stoke was not enough as Southampton played out an entertaining 2-2 draw with Sheffield United.
Massive credit to Scunthorpe who were predicted to finish rock bottom this season and defied all expectations by finishing 9th, just 3 points off the playoffs. Unbelievable effort from QPR too, who flouted their 18th place prediction by finishing 5th in the playoff places.
Marlon King would finish top scorer for Watford with 30 goals, well clear of second place István Ferenczi, Kevin Kyle picking up the Playmaker Award with 14 assists.
Playoff Semi Finals – leg 1
QPR 1 – 1 West Brom
Southampton 2 – 0 Watford
Playoff Semi Finals – leg 2
West Brom 2 – 0 QPR << West Brom win 3-1 on aggregate
Watford 2 – 1 Southampton << Southampton win 3-2 on aggregate
Playoff Final
Southampton 1 – 2 West Brom
A cagey 2-1 win for West Brom as Chris Brunt scores a late winner from a set piece. Sherjill MacDonald may well have offside for the opener as Zoltan Gera played a lovely ball in to the near post and Southampton may well have a right to be upset with referee Lee Probert. If the build-up to the equaliser was scrappy, the finish certainly wasn’t: a ball lifted over the top by Jason Euell is despatched exquisitely on the volley by David McGoldrick. Chris Brunt would have the last laugh in this one, sticking a 20yard free kick into the top corner to send West Bromwich Albion back into the Premier League.

https://preview.redd.it/0yrrfjr4rfd51.png?width=844&format=png&auto=webp&s=81c1fb45847ee4d66475e7fdcc29174856bbf490
Overachievers: QPR, Scunthorpe, Barnsley
Underachievers: Preston, Sheffield Wednesday, Cardiff City, Colchester United
League One
Business as expected for the top two as Nottingham Forest win the league and Swansea City seal automatic promotion. Yeovil needed favours on the final day to usurp Swansea but did themselves none in the process by drawing in what transpired to be a dead rubber against Bristol Rovers. Doncaster needed to better Carlisle’s result to go up but instead both teams lost, and Carlisle held onto 6th place. Brighton could’ve taken advantage of that slip but lost to champions Nottingham Forest, whilst Oldham could’ve shocked everybody but ultimately lost to Southend instead.
All four relegated teams were already down going into the final day: Northampton, Leeds, Tranmere and Leyton Orient.
Frazier Campbell of Wallsall and Marvin Williams of Yeovil would share the Golden Boot between them with 32 goals, 4 clear of veteran striker Tore André Flo. Brian Howard’s impressive displays for Yeovil meant he claimed the Playmaker Award with 20 assists.
Playoff Semi Finals – leg 1
Luton 2 – 1 Walsall
Carlisle 1 – 3 Yeovil
Playoff Semi Finals – leg 2
Walsall 0 – 0 Luton << Luton win 2-1 on aggregate
Yeovil 3 – 1 << Yeovil win 6-2 on aggregate
Playoff Final
Luton 4 – 1 Yeovil << Luton promoted after extra time
An open-ended affair with chances aplenty for both sides, Luton taking the lead inside the first 5 minutes, full-back Alan Goodall whipping a lovely ball into the near post for Sam Parkin to tuck away. Yeovil would be reduced to ten me early in the second half, Terrell Forbes hospital pass clearance met by the head of Luton’s Chris Hackett who nodded into the path of striker Drew Talbot. Talbot was unable to get his shot away clearly as Matthew Rose stuck out a leg to bring Talbot down and was sent off for a professional foul, drawing large protests from the Yeovil players.
Still, Yeovil pressed and five minutes later they’d find an unlikely equaliser. Brian Howard, standing over a free kick 30 yards out, goes for the audacious and gets a huge slice of luck as the free kick clatters off the wall, sends the keeper the wrong way and flies into the empty net.
Brave Yeovil would hold out the 90 minutes but unfortunately, Luton would make the extra man count in extra time, substitute Sol Davis starting the procession with a delightful free kick on the edge of the box. Tidy finishes from David Edwards and Willie Gibson rounded off a fine performance from Luton as they sealed their place in next season’s Championship.

https://preview.redd.it/bkaziqu8rfd51.png?width=843&format=png&auto=webp&s=c55d9f1700bfaa285ca402f45f7d697b20801452
Overachievers: Walsall, Brighton, Cheltenham, Yeovil
Underachievers: Leeds, Tranmere, Millwall
Maybe slightly harsh to put Leeds in there with a 15-point deduction, but without it they would’ve finished 10th which is still way below expectations.
League Two
Impressive Bury romped to a surprise League Two victory, 5 points clear of Peterborough who in turn were 6 points clear of Chesterfield. On-loan youngster Chedwyn Evans’ 24 league goals complementing striker partner Andy Bishop’s 22 league goals to good effect.
MK Dons’ Jemal Johnson would score 4 goals in a 5-2 away thriller at Brentford to snatch the Golden Boot away from Morecambe’s Michael Twiss, who must’ve hoped his two goals against Barnet would’ve been enough, Johnson finishing the season on 25 goals. Kevin McBride of Darlington wins the Playmaker Award.
Grimsby could’ve been relegated on the last day had they, as they did, lost to Hereford but in the end it mattered not as Barnet and Mansfield, who only needed a win to try and survive, both suffered heavy defeats to drop out of the Football League.
Playoff Semi Final – leg 1
Shrewsbury 1 – 2 Darlington
Macclesfield 0 – 2 Morecambe
Playoff Semi Final – leg 2
Darlington 1 – 1 Shrewsbury << Darlington win 3-1 on aggregate
Morecambe 3 – 2 Macclesfield << Morecambe win 5-2 on aggregate
Playoff final
An incredible event as teams predicted to finish 12th and 21st met in the playoff final. Morecambe’s firepower really should’ve seen them through here, but it was Darlington who took an early lead through Gregg Blundell.
Darlington must’ve feared the worst when top scorer Pawel Abbott was taken off injured after the half-hour mark. It took Morecambe until the 79th minute to get off the mark through, Jamie Forrester providing the breakthrough. Smart thinking from goalkeeper Steven Drench sees Forrester run through a gap the size of Jupiter between the two centre backs to collect the long punt forward and slot home.
Darlington would somehow have the last laugh though, Tommy Wright slotting him neatly 3 minutes later for a famous win, taking Darlington up to League One

https://preview.redd.it/m8t0l57crfd51.png?width=844&format=png&auto=webp&s=6f94715ce63781bdc9085c33b619229cb10d57c0
Overachievers: Morecambe, Macclesfield, Accrington Stanley, Darlington, Bury
Underachievers: Bradford, Rotherham, Brentford, MK Dons, Rochdale, Grimsby, Barnet, Mansfield
Honestly, take your pick. Crazy season in League Two.
Non-League
Oxford won the Conference Premier, 9 points ahead of the playoff hopefuls. Rushden & Diamonds steamrollered Stevenage 4-0 in the final, who themselves had reached the final via a 90th minute winner against Crawley, who themselves had an excellent season after being predicted to finish 19th and instead finished 2nd, even with a 6-point deduction. Simeon Jackson wins top goal scorer with 33 league goals for Rushden & Diamonds.
Overachievers: Salisbury, Histon, Crawley, Rushden & Diamonds
Underachievers: Exeter, York, Torquay, Ebbsfleet, Kidderminster, Burton

https://preview.redd.it/cz3nwj2erfd51.png?width=851&format=png&auto=webp&s=af2562e64a445924f67c6fae2a98cb245648cad7
Southport win the Conference North and Boston United win the playoff final, beating Kettering on penalties. Alfreton, Hyde and Vauxhall are all relegated.
Lewes win the Conference South and Dorchester Town win the playoff final, beating Braintree on penalties. Havant & Waterlooville, Hayes & Yeading and Fisher Athletic are all relegated.
League round-up. We’ve already talked about the overachievers and underachievers, so let’s quickly compare the media predictions to the teams’ actual finishing positions. Should we castigate the media? Or should be laud and slate the teams who, for better or worse, defied expectations?
The final position is denoted to the right of the team, with the change from the prediction one over.

What do the media know, eh?
The game also has its own season summary for each league which pretty much covers everything I’ve already shared but for those interested, see below:

https://preview.redd.it/d1u1vdgkrfd51.png?width=853&format=png&auto=webp&s=87c6b9ad71e0461ce708fa9ab1cf51acb2113f2a
UEFA Cup
It seems like forever ago since we saw European competition. I will skip ahead, so here are the First and Second Knockout Round results.
First Round

https://preview.redd.it/zm64vwrlrfd51.png?width=478&format=png&auto=webp&s=a730b92e911d7d70aaff43e11de4dd290b7b561b
Second Round

https://preview.redd.it/n85jm85nrfd51.png?width=481&format=png&auto=webp&s=0bfac290a1058ea2edb979e18314d41a7f753bd7
Gritty performances throughout. For those of you wondering why FC Bayern are in the UEFA Cup it’s because they finished 4th in the Bundesliga in 06/07 behind champions VfB Stuttgart, 2nd place Schalke and 3rd place Werder Bremen. They entered at the UEFA Cup first round, essentially a final qualifying round. In-game, they defeated FC Twente 5-1 on aggregate to reach the group stage. They finished 3rd in their group, behind Fiorentina and Bolton.

Quarter Finals
All relatively straight forward in the Quarter Finals too, Bayern and Tottenham progress comfortably whilst Porto and Fiorentina had to do a bit of digging in to get the job done.
FC Bayern (6) 3 - 0 (1) Werder Bremen
Dinamo Kiev (2) 2 - 2 (4) Porto
Tottenham (5) 1 - 1 (2) Blackburn
Fiorentina (3) 0 - 0 (2) Girondins Bordeaux

Semi Finals
Bayern and Fiorentina met again in the Semi Finals to relive their group match (which was a 1-1 draw). The Semi Final would prove to be hotly contested again, Bayern stealing the victory in the 90th minute through Bastian Schweinsteiger, although replays show he may well have been offside. Luca Toni and Adrian Mutu were the other goal scorers.
The second leg lived up to the billing as well, Bayern taking the lead mid-way through the first half through Miroslav Klose’s smart run and finish. Mark van Bommel added an unlikely second on the night through a sublime freekick which left Fiorentina needing 4 goals to go through. Adrian Mutu led a one-man crusade with a brace in the 63rd and 69th minute respectively before substitute Massimo Gobbi’s tidy 73rd minute finish set up a nervy finale. However, La Viola couldn’t add to their tally and Bayern reached the final.
A tight contest in the other match was lifted with Steed Malbranque’s goal on the stroke of half-time, simply sumptuous freekick from the corner of the box, lifted over the wall and into the back of the net on the near side. Some fine work from José Bosingwa down the right-hand side allowed him to whip a cross into the far post for Raúl Meireles to head in an equaliser to ensure the spoils were shared going into the second leg.
Robbie Keane scored his 25th goal of the season here with a cool finish, showing that you don’t need to blast the ball to score, Tottenham now sitting pretty knowing that Porto needed to score twice to progress. A moment of madness, however, from Didier Zokora left them in a spot of bother. Zokora was shown a straight red card on the brink of half-time, his second of the season, after catching Malkhaz Asatiani with his elbow, referee Stuart Dougal showing no hesitation in sending the Ivorian off. However, Porto were unable to even pluck out an equaliser, let alone a winner and Tottenham progress.
FC Bayern (4) 2 - 3 (4) Fiorentina << FC Bayern advance on away goals
Porto (1) 0 - 1 (2) Tottenham

Final
Bayern were utterly ruthless in the final, showing no mercy to Tottenham in a 3-0 demolishing, all of the goals coming in the first half courtesy of Luca Toni and a brace from Miroslav Klose. The lack of defensive cover in the midfield really cost them and Kevin-Prince Boateng had his work cut out trying to fill-in in Zokora’s absence, indeed getting himself sent off in the 79th minute for a second bookable offence.

https://preview.redd.it/itis2karrfd51.png?width=844&format=png&auto=webp&s=7d0c4d4a8dc0081c25d84af5d35b3e46dea10924
Miroslav Klose’s two goals in the final means he takes home the Golden Boot with 12 goals, edging out RC Lens’ Aruna Dindane and team-mate Luca Toni by one goal. Riccardo Montolivo of Fiorentina picks up the Playmaker Award with 8 assists.
Champions League
Now, for what you’ve all been waiting for – the Champions League!
We left you with the Quarter Final line-ups:

Get ready for mayhem...
None of the teams would disappoint in this round either. Liverpool beating Real Madrid 2-1 away in the first leg only to almost throw it away with a 2-1 loss at home, thanks for Raúl’s 90th minute goal. Liverpool may well have been questioning just why the final whistle hadn’t already blown, but Jamie Carragher would be the extra time hero though, scoring a scrappy goal after a corner was failed to be cleared by Madrid.
Inter Milan’s first leg away goal helped them on their way to beating Man Utd over two legs, Adriano powering home from an indirect free kick opportunity. Paul Scholes would level the tie up when they met again in Italy, but former Arsenal man Patrick Vieira would seal the tie for Inter with a wonderful 30-yard screamer into the top corner.
A contender for match-of-the-competition as Arsenal overcame Barcelona in a 10-goal feast. Thierry Henry’s sub 5-minute brace against his former club, including one after just 18 seconds, was pegged back by Robin van Persie’s own brace and the Gunners would lead 3-2 at half-time thanks to “wonderkid” Nicklas Bendtner. Bendtner would be at it again shortly after half-time, thanks in part to even more craftsmanship from Francesc Fàbregas. A headed goal from William Gallas at a corner put Arsenal 5-2 up and looking comfortable but Barcelona went on the attack the corresponding kick off, Xavi Hernández sliding Ronaldinho in to make it 5-3, Jens Lehmann going walkabouts by all accounts.
Bendtner would complete has hattrick on 70 minutes though, slotting home after a neat turn in the corner of the box, sending Andrea Barzagli to another dimension. Barcelona would secure their 5th away goal though, Thierry Henry completing his own hat-trick after William Gallas failed to deal with a ball over the tip. Final score 6-4. And breathe.
The second leg was less entertaining, but Thierry Henry would put his former club to the sword again with two more goals and, despite Rafael Márquez being sent off for an astonishing elbow to Bakary Sagna’s face, Barcelona held out for the win on away goals. 2-0 on the night, 6-6 on aggregate. The most disgraceful part of the night was the players surrounding referee Thorsten Kinhöfer after the red card. Pundits are still perplexed as to what they were complaining about.
Finally onto Celtic, who produced the most breath-taking First Knockout Round ties against Valencia would continue to produce high entertainment value against PSV. Celtic held the advantage after a 1-1 draw in Eindhoven, but PSV would not go down without a fight. Rodrigo Palacio opened the scoring after Scott Brown needlessly lost the ball and some poor play from goalkeeper Artur Boruc, less than 45seconds into the match. Maciej Zurawski would dig his goalkeeper out of a hole 3 minutes later, beating Heurelho Gomes at his near post before Rodrigo hit back again on 8 minutes, capitalising on another poor error from Artur Boruc.
John de Jong would add to icing to a rich and wholesome cake, flicking the ball into the far corner of the net beyond Boruc’s reach and PSV looked comfortable leading 4-2 on aggregate, knowing Celtic now needed 3 goals to progress. PSV would lose key midfielder Edison Méndez to injury on 27 minutes but it would take until the second half for Celtic to take advantage, Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink finishing off an attack before Maciej Zurawski would set up a frantic last 5 minutes after getting on the end of Lee Naylor’s inch-perfect cross. Celtic couldn’t produce one more moment of magic though and the tie would finish 4-4 on aggregate, PSV going through by virtue of away goals.
Real Madrid (3) 2 - 2 (4) Liverpool
Man Utd (1) 1 - 1 (2) Inter
Arsenal (6) 0 - 2 (6) Barcelona << Barcelona advance on away goals
PSV (4) 3 - 3 (4) Celtic << PSV advance on away goals

Semi Finals
Could the Semi Finals produce the same magic? Liverpool were paired up against Inter Milan and Barcelona were drawn against PSV.
Barcelona all but ended PSV hopes of an underdog victory, smashing them 4-0 in the first leg at home, Thierry Henry and Ronaldinho both scoring braces, Ronaldinho’s both coming from penalties (and both when Henry was on a hat-trick so he can probably consider himself unlucky to be allowed to take one of them). With Edison Méndez still missing, Sebastián Battaglia was asked to step in but he was easily over-run by the Barcelona midfield.
PSV showed incredible fight immediately in the return fixture, going 2-0 up inside the first 7 minutes through Palacio’s lob and Ismael Aissati’s smart finish, but Barcelona soon calmed everything down, scoring 4 unanswered goals in return before half-time courtesy of Barzagli, two from Henry and a brilliant Ronaldinho free kick.. Gastón Fernández scored again late in the second half, but with the tie already done and dusted, it was more for pride than anything else. Barcelona win 4-3 on the night and 8-3 on aggregate.
Liverpool hosted Inter Milan at Anfield for the first leg of the other semi final and took a first half-lead through a stunning John Arne Riise free kick. Steven Gerrard forced Júlio César into an own goal after initially saving Ryan Babel’s long-range effort before Fernando Torres turned provider for Ryan Babel to breakaway and make it 3-0. Zlatan Ibrahimović gave Inter Milan some hope with a late away goal, pouncing on a rare error from Jamie Carragher in the 88th minute.
Liverpool were in good form going into the return leg, having battered fierce rivals Man Utd 4-0 at home at the weekend but it was Inter Milan who dominated this game for long periods, really putting the Liverpool team to the sword. Their dominance paid off in the 21st minute when Ibrahimović retrieved Maicon’s pinpoint pass and slotted into the bottom corner. Torres would ease the pressure on Liverpool with an equaliser at the start of the second half, his 20th goal of the season passed into the bottom corner; the keeper probably should’ve done better with it though. Inter claimed offside, but I’m not convinced.
Incensed, Inter went on the attack immediately, both literally and figuratively, injuring Torres before Ibrahimović fed Adriano who had the vision to pick out Esteban Cambiasso to restore Inter’s lead on the night. A great counterattack. Inter would make Liverpool pay once more for sloppy defending when Steve Finnan was beaten to the ball too easily by Adriano who cut it back for Maxwell to fire home. Pepe Reina will be disappointed when he looks back on that, as he really should be saving those kinds of shots. 3-1 on the night and unbelievably 4-4 on aggregate.
Extra time beckoned but Adriano was not interested in penalties, whipping a delightful ball around the corner for his strike partner David Suazo, clean through on goal to slot past a helpless Reina. Liverpool would go all out offensive from then until the final whistle but couldn’t muster one last goal to salvage the result and Inter go through to final, 4-1 on the night, 5-4 on aggregate.
Liverpool (4) 1 - 4 (5) Inter
Barcelona (8) 4 - 3 (3) PSV

Final
And so for the final. Inter Milan vs Barcelona. The world held high hopes after the last few rounds: they wanted goals.
They were not disappointed.

Strong.
Barcelona opened the scoring on 23 minutes, emerging “wonderkid” Lionel Messi slotting Samuel Eto’o through to score his 20th goal of the season. The lead wouldn’t last too long though, as Ibrahimović fed Suazo to equaliser on 31 minutes. Eto’o would restore the lead again soon after, Deco sliding a lovely pass through the defence for Eto’o to bury.
Controversy followed in the second half. Xavi loses the ball to Maxwell inside the Inter half who in turn goes on a mazy run towards goal exchanging passes with Cambiasso along the way. He is allegedly obstructed by Zambrotta outside the penalty arc, but replays show that it’s a blatant dive. To make matters worse, the referee inexplicably gives a penalty! Ibrahimović slots it without question. 2-2.
63 minutes and Puyol is needlessly dragged out of position to close down Stankovic who instead slips in Ibrahimović for his second of the game. Minutes later, a poor throw-in from Zambrotta gifts the ball to Ibrahimović to seal his hat-trick and put the game to bed, Inter holding out for a 4-2 win in the final against Barcelona!

Despite the result, Ibrahimović would finish runner up to on 14 goals to Thierry Henry and Rodrigo Palacio in the Golden Boot race, the latter pair netting 15 goals a-piece. Andrés Iniesta would take home the Playmaker Award with 8 assists ahead of team-mate Ronaldinho’s 7. Despite an average rating of 7.83, Ronaldinho would also finish runner-up to Ibrahimović in the Champions League best player, with Henry rounding off the top 3.
Now, because does not save an accessible history of stats and results, they are essentially wiped as the season ends, so I decided to end each 4th game file on June 1st. The game resets around about the 24th or 25th but I wanted to stop the game after the season had finished and before any international competitions began.
But the year is 2008 so we all know what’s coming…

https://preview.redd.it/77mkbzd5sfd51.png?width=890&format=png&auto=webp&s=2b0d8ccafdf04b8dc03fdc1204ea9a21df93e15b
This does mean I’m going to have to go into the game file for Year 2, but I’ll keep everything else a secret. Euro 2008 deserves to be inside the 07/08 season.
I do have all the results for the other international tournaments akin to this which make up the Confederations Cup competitors, so I will give a very brief oversight into those as well as they happen.
I’m not going to go into how each team qualified for the tournament unless you specifically ask about it in the comments. Let’s look at the groups, with the help of some expert MS Paint skills to display their current world rankings too.

https://preview.redd.it/gjbu0xo6sfd51.png?width=275&format=png&auto=webp&s=a4f9acbbe0a8ab7fba779689c4137c37b137793c
The most notable changes are that Denmark, England, Scotland and Finland all qualified for this edition and Spain, French, Russia and Poland, who all qualified in the real Euro 2008, miss out. Hosts Switzerland and Austria naturally have terrible ratings due to not playing many competitive internationals as they didn’t need to qualify for their own tournament. Group B looks tough, and the Scots may well fancy an upset in Group D.
Editors predictions: England. Not just because I’m biased, but because on paper they have the squad to do it. The Golden Generation may not have succeeded in real life, but this is stats-based fantasy. Football’s coming home! Failing that, and with France and Spain both missing, it’s anyone’s to take. I’m putting money on a Ronaldo-backed Portugal.
I will run through them Group by Group, even though it won’t strictly be in the order. All will be well again come the Knockout Rounds.
(editor note: a picture of all the groups is at the bottom. I had to cut back to 20 images)
Group A
Croatia and Sweden played out an entertaining 2-2 draw that didn’t get going until the last 30 minutes. Jurica Vranjes thought he’d snatched a late 87th minute for Croatia until Marcus Allbäck equalised 2 minutes later. Two early goals for Denmark were enough to see off Switzerland despite themselves pulling a goal back before half-time, a 2-1 finish.
The second round of fixtures produced even more drama, a Tranquillo Barnetta hat-trick for Switzerland helping to sink Sweden 4-3 in a back-and-forth game, Gelson Fernandes eventually settling the contest for the Swiss. An Eduardo-inspired Croatia took the game to Denmark and a late Nicklas Bendtner goal wasn’t enough to stop Croatia winning 3-1.
Any win for Croatia against Switzerland sends them through. A draw would also suffice. Switzerland need to win, although a draw would do if Sweden could beat Denmark. Any positive Denmark result paired with a Croatia win sees them progress, or even a win and a Croatia/Swiss draw. Sweden must beat Denmark and hope Croatia win. If the Swiss beat Croatia, they need to win and hope for a goal difference swing.
Drama all round as Sweden’s tournament hopes end with a 2-1 defeat to Denmark. Switzerland know they realistically need to win but can only muster a 2-2 draw with Croatia.
Denmark top the group, Croatia are runners up.

Group B
Czech Republic and Austria open the tournament with an entertaining 2-2 draw, Austria snatching a 90th minute equaliser through Steffen Hofmann after a mistake from Zdenek Grygera. Turkey and Portugal would step it up a notch by playing out a 3-2 game which, in truth, Portugal were always in control of. 3-0 up inside 21minutes, Turkey made a second half comeback but the 2nd goal in the 89th minute was too little, too late.
Goals from Deco and Tomas Rosicky in the first half ensured the spoils were shared in a game where the Czech Republic dominated Portugal for large portions of the game and will be disappointed to only draw 1-1. (editor note: the game seems to think Portugal completed 200% of their crosses in this match…) Turkey, on the other hand, turned their dominance into a 2-0 win over Austria.
Portugal need to beat Austria to secure top spot whereas Austria know they need a big win and some good fortune for a draw in the other game. Any winner of Turkey/Czech Republic will qualify, but a draw for Turkey should be enough, barring a miracle from Austria. It’s feasible that Portugal could still be knocked out, though very unlikely.
And as it happens, Portugal make light work of Austria, Maniche and Cristiano Ronaldo scoring first half goals to seal the tie 2-0 in an otherwise boring match. Czech Republic would be made to pay for not getting the winner against Portugal, being torn apart comprehensively by a relentless Turkey side with braces for both Nihat and Halil Altintop, 4-0 the final score line.
Portugal top the group, Turkey are runners up.

Group C
The last group to get going, but no lack of entertainment here, with Romania cruising to a 2-0 win against Greece. All of the drama came in the much-anticipated England/Germany match though and it met all expectations. Darren Bent’s headed opener was cancelled out by Miroslav Klose pouncing on Paul Robinson’s fumble, but Wayne Rooney would restore England’s lead halfway through the first half. Bayern’s Lukas Podolski pulled it level again before half-time before the teams seemed set to see out a 2-2 draw. However, deep into stoppage time at the end of 90 minutes, up steps David Beckham to do what David Beckham does best – dispatch freekicks into the top corner. 3-2. There was still time after the restart for Steven Gerrard to be shown a straight-red for hacking down Klose with two-feet.
Germany would take their revenge out on Greece in the next game, securing a 4-2 victory, whilst England would maintain their good form by persevering for a late 2-0 win against Romania.
England are already through and Greece cannot qualify so their final game is a dead rubber, other than Greece trying not to finish bottom and England trying to assure top spot. The winner of Germany/Romania will go through, but a draw will be enough for Germany by virtue of Goal Difference.
England consign Greece to 4th place in the group with a routine 2-0 win, goals from Wayne Rooney and Shaun Wright-Phillips enough to see them off. A cagey first-half in the Germany/Romania match became a much more open-ended affair after Daniel Niculae’s brilliant 47th minute opener, a sublime solo run culminating in a lobbed finish. Miroslav Klose fired back 10 minutes later with 2 goals in quick succession to swing the tie but Romania, not prepared to lie down, equalised again through Eric Bicfalvi. Romania would do the unthinkable though, Adrian Mutu bending a delightful goal into the corner to secure a 3-2 victory for Romania.
England top the group, Romania are runners up.

Group D
Italy kicked off the group against Finland with a nervy win, having gone 1-0 down to a 60th minute penalty from Ari Nyman. Filippo Inzaghi pulled it level in the 82nd minute before Antonin Cassano’s stoppage time winner stole all the points from Finland. Scotland were less keen to roll over though and will be disappointed to have thrown away a 3-1 lead at the 85th minute, Wesley Sneijder and Roy Makaay with late goals to snatch a 3-3 draw.
Holland vs Italy was billed as the one to watch in this group, and rightly so, both teams amassing almost 30 shots between them, but with both keepers in good form, the match would be tied 1-1, Riccardo Montolivo cancelled out Robin van Persie’s first half strike. Scotland have certainly found their shooting boots at this tournament after putting 4 past Finland, but they were made to work for the victory with the Finns taking the lead and later equalising through Mika Ääritalo’s brace. James McFadden’s strike would retake the lead before Barry Ferguson put the icing on the cake of a 4-2 win.
Scotland need any result against Italy to go through. A loss through, coupled with a likely Holland win overly Finland, would send them crashing out. Finland cannot progress. Holland must win to go through, as must Italy.
Holland do indeed get their win against Finland, dominating from start to finish, although the score line should really have been bigger than 2-1. Scotland’s hopes of sneaking out of the group were dealt an immediate blow as they went 1-0 down to Alessandro Del Piero’s header inside 45 seconds. Alberto Gilardino would double the lead in the 20th minute and although Kenny Miller pulled one back in the second half, they couldn’t find a second goal to escape the group. Final score 2-1 to Italy.
Italy top the group, Holland are runners up.
Summary
https://preview.redd.it/o41tr52jtfd51.png?width=848&format=png&auto=webp&s=e3c96a5bda7862b3e04e55ada618d0e7358e0d8c
Quarter Finals
Turkey – Denmark
Croatia – Portugal
England – Holland
Italy – Romania
No real humdingers here as all of the teams tightened up a lot.
Turkey did away with Denmark 2-0 in a game that the Danes will be disappointed to have not scored in. Nihat and an own goal from Per Krøldrup sealed the game.
Portugal were perhaps the better team in their tie against Croatia but still had to work hard to secure a 2-1 victory, Eduardo’s first half strike cancelled out by Maniche and Ronaldo in the second.
More late, late drama in this one as Frank Lampard scored a trademark goal, arriving from deep to sweep home a Wright-Phillips cross. England must’ve thought that’d be enough but Robin van Persie struck early into stoppage time to level the tie up 1-1. But cometh the 94th minute, cometh the man: Holland do not deal with a long clearance properly and Wright-Phillips skips past his man on the wing to lay the ball into the path of the onrushing Lampard who buries it high into the far corner. Holland complain to the linesman but really, they should be looking at themselves for some shoddy defending.
Romania will be disappointed they had to take Italy all the way to penalties to beat them, having been arguably the better team throughout. 1-1 at full time but a comfortable 4-2 shootout victory as their excellent tournament marches on, the only sour point being Stefan Radu’s 121st minute red card for a horrific tackle on Antonio Cassano.
Turkey 2-0 Denmark
Croatia 1-2 Portugal
England 2-1 Holland
Italy 1-1 Romania << Romania advance on penalties
Semi Finals
Turkey – Romania
Portugal – England
One thing guaranteed in this tournament now is that there will be an outsider in the final. Turkey left it late, but a brace from Nihat would prove enough to put Romania to the sword and end their dream run. Romania might look back and feel like they could’ve done better with both goals though.
Manchester United teammates Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney did battle in this one, both getting their names on the scoresheet with clinical finishes. There would be nothing to settle the two sides until the very end: penalties. Hugo Viana, Nuno Valente, Jorge Andrade all scored whilst Gareth Barry, John Terry and Steven Gerrard did likewise. After Miguel fired home, Michael Carrick would see his penalty saved by goalkeeper Ricardo. However, some Paul Robinson heroics against Ricardo Carvalho gave Rio Ferdinand a chance to get back into the shootout. The pressure was too much though, and he slammed his penalty against the inside of the post to see Portugal through to the final, a final which Deco will miss with suspension after hacking Wright-Phillips down with two feet in 120th minute for an early bath.
Turkey 2-0 Romania
Portugal 1-1 England << Portugal advance on penalties
Final
No Third Place Playoff in the Euros, straight into the final where Turkey meet Portugal, looking for an upset. Nihat and Mehmet Aurélio’s persistence forced the breakthrough on 20 minutes but a smart short freekick routine 2 minutes later from Portugal saw Maniche hit a bending daisy cutter into the bottom corner to equalise. Into the second half and Mehmet Topuz played one of the balls of the tournament from deep, around the defence and into the path of Nihat who didn’t need to break stride to hit an unbelievable shot on the half-volley. Rumour has it that Nihat lost Ricardo Carvalho so well, he is still searching for Nihat to this day. Turkey would hold on to their 2-1 advantage until the final whistle to become unlikely European Champions 2008.

And so that concludes the first season back of Reasons Why I Still Play FM08, also unofficially called What Could Have Been.
This grew to be significantly longer than I expected, and I thoroughly enjoyed writing it, even if it did take me well over 15 hours to do so.
If anybody has any specific questions about any aspects of this particular game, please feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to answer them, whether it’s information about non-league clubs, club finances, world rankings, wonderkid regens etc.
I will also happily run through competitions like the African Cup of Nations and the Olympics, although competitions like the Asian Cup, Gold Cup, Copa América have yet to happen on this file.
I have at least 5 seasons worth of game files now, and seasons 2-5 are all structured the same in terms of save dates: September 1st, December 1st, March 1st and June 1st.
Congratulations if you got this far, I applaud your perseverance. I hope you enjoyed it. See you soon for Year 2.

2020.07.22 23:34 lovedoesnotdelight Black book names I haven’t seen discussed much on this sub / attempt # 2

*Note that the author of above article (a prior employee of Lazard) states that a disproportionate number of contacts in the black book were employed by Lazard (which has a problematic history in terms of sexual misconduct amongst other forms of misconduct).
**Another interesting note from the author was the amount of deceased people in the book. The late David Rockefeller, Lord Hanson, the British industrialist; John Gutfreund, the onetime “King of Wall Street,” (who presided over a major Treasury market scandal when he was the leader of Salomon Brothers); Paul Allen, the cofounder of Microsoft; Edmond Safra, a billionaire banker who perished in a fire in his apartment in Monaco in 1999; and Al Taubman, the billionaire Detroit real-estate tycoon who was caught up in a scandal involving Sotheby’s. (Taubman’s son Bobby is also in Epstein’s book).
** Most of this is copy pasted from various sources**
Jes Staley - a former senior executive at JPMorgan Chase and now the CEO of Barclays Plc, the big British bank, was, as the New York Times reported, Epstein’s conduit to JPMorgan Chase back in the day. Epstein introduced Staley to the billionaire hedge fund manager Glenn Dubin. visited Epstein on the private island, accompanied by his wife Debora. He also visited Epstein at his Palm Beach office while the Epstein was on prison work-release.
Bill Berkman - the wealthy investor whose secretary once sued him for being forced to look at pornographic pictures of women in emails (the suit was dismissed with prejudice in 2015)
Alan Patricof - the prominent New York venture capitalist and Clinton friend
Michael Ovitz - the onetime Hollywood super-agent who co-founded Creative Artists Agency (CAA) in 1975 and served as its chairman until 1995. and Disney executive. (President of The Walt Disney Company from October 1995 to January 1997) became one of the most powerful men in Hollywood; he was so influential that, when The New York Times wrote about him in 1989, industry executives, directors, and actors refused to comment. He served as talent agent to Hollywood actors Tom Cruise, Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Costner, John Belushi, Michael Douglas, Bill Murray, Sylvester Stallone, and Barbra Streisand, as well as directors Steven Spielberg, Barry Levinson, and Sydney Pollack. became the subject of controversy for remarks made in a Vanity Fair interview, wherein he blamed the downfall of AMG upon a cabal led by Dreamworks cofounder David Geffen which Ovitz described as the "gay mafia". In addition to Geffen, the list included The New York Times correspondent Bernie Weinraub, Disney Chairman (and former employer) Michael Eisner; Bryan Lourd, Kevin Huvane, and Richard Lovett, partners at CAA, Universal Studios president Ronald Meyer (Ovitz's former partner at CAA); and Vivendi CEO Barry Diller. "If I were to establish the foundation of the negativity," Ovitz stated, "it all comes down to David Geffen and Bernie Weinraub. Everything comes back to those two. It’s the same group [quoted] in every article. Ovitz now acts as a private investor who has informally advised the careers of luminaries such as Martin Scorsese.
Jimmy Cayne - the former CEO Bear Stearns. the first Wall Street chief to own a company stake worth more than $1 billion"but he lost most of that in the 2007–2008 collapse of Bear Stearns stock and sold his entire stake in the company for $61 million. He had a reputation for being asleep at the wheel, regularly leaving the office by helicopter for 3 ½-day golf weekends or out of town at bridge tournaments. named in Time Magazine's list of '25 People to Blame for the Financial Crisis. (he called Alan Greenberg “Allen“ while everyone else called him “Ace”. He charged everyone who used the name “Ace” in his presence $100)
Joseph C. Kusnan - a former portfolio manager at Highbridge (Dubin’s company). managed one of the funds to which Dubin directed around $75 million of Epstein’s money to. Glenn introduced him to Epstein as a new manager that he was familiar with and thought highly of. Claims he only met Epstein once he and never communicated again beyond delivering “a good rate of return on his modest investment.”
Daniel B. Zwirn - also a former Highbridge portfolio manager, managed the other fund, the D.B. Zwirn Special Opportunities Fund. (Highbridge initially owned a 47% stake in Zwirn's management company, the source said. Dubin directed $150 million of Epstein’s money to the Zwirn fund
Both Zwirn and Kusnan had worked briefly at Lazard, the 171-year-old investment bank, and it was Kusnan who introduced Zwirn to Dubin around 2002.
Kusnan did have a brief meeting with Epstein at his palatial mansion on East 71st in Manhattan. According to someone who has heard the story, Kusnan went to Epstein’s townhouse and was ushered into a little room by a butler. There, Kusnan saw Epstein sitting atop a “raised platform, like a throne, with two strikingly gorgeous young Eastern European women standing beside the chair.” Epstein asked Kusnan a few questions and then quickly declared that he “was dismissed.” The butler escorted Kusnan out of the mansion. “He walked backed to his office and sitting on the fax machine was the signed paperwork” from Epstein agreeing to make the multi-million-dollar investment in Kusnan’s fund
Harry Beller - Currently a Partner at Louis J Septimus & Co. Worked for Epstein as his tax and accounting expert. An executive described dealing with Beller each quarter as a “completely weird” experience. He said Beller was always fixated about whether any of the annual profits from the Zwirn fund—which averaged returns in excess of 20% a year before it ran into trouble with the SEC—had income sourced from New York State, because Epstein “did not want to pay taxes” in New York State. He says he “never got a single question from [Beller] about the [Zwirn] fund’s strategy or returns. All [Beller] would ask every quarter was what was the percentage of New York.” there are reasons to believe he might know more than has been revealed about Epstein’s empire. Beller, the Zwirn executive said is ”the guy people should be trying to track down and interview.” ”He holds the keys to kingdom.”
After four years of stellar returns and a hedge fund with some $12 billion of assets, Zwirn had amassed a personal fortune of some $700 million, as well as a $17 million condominium on Central Park South, a home in Quogue, in the Hamptons, and an $18 million Gulfstream jet. It all began to come crashing down for Zwirn in 2007 when he discovered that the fund’s chief financial officer had moved money around without authorization between his international fund and his domestic fund and had done some unauthorized movement of money in order for Zwirn’s management company to buy the Gulfstream jet. Zwirn reported the infractions voluntarily to the SEC, and both he and his firm were later completely absolved of any wrongdoing.
Jeffrey Epstein sued Zwirn’s fund to get back the money he had invested in it, and prevailed in court, receiving almost all of the $150 million plus what he had made on an annual basis, according to someone familiar with what happened. In 2010 the dispute between Epstein and Zwirn went to private arbitration, which Epstein won.
Tom Barrack - the founder of hedge fund Colony Capital and a longtime friend of Donald Trump. Barrack was head of Trump’s inauguration committee; he has agreed to cooperate with the House Judiciary Committee’s ongoing investigation into Trump. (He at one point tried to buy Towers Financial)
Anton “Tony” Valukas - a former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois and a senior partner at the prominent Chicago law firm, Jenner &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp; Block. Valukas’s biggest claim to fame was probably as being the acclaimed author of the 2010 nine-volume report examining the causes of the biggest bankruptcy in American history—the 2008 liquidation of Lehman Brothers. Why in the world would Epstein and Valukas want to have anything to do with each other?
The last name I found interesting which was not mentioned in above article is :
Elizabeth Ross Johnson - the heiress of the Johnson and Johnson fortune. Ms. Johnson, known as Libet, was a tabloid fixture in New York with five husbands and years of family drama. She also dated, Dr. Lionel Bissoon, Michael Bolton and Jerome Jeandin (chauffeur at the Ritz in Paris), Frédéric Fekkai, the hairdresser who, like many of her boyfriends, was younger than she, and fashion consultant Shirin von Wulffen, who is reportedly one of the few men who dumped her.
This was Epstein’s other client aside from Wexner. The relationship with Jeffrey went beyond money management—Mr. Epstein’s name appears briefly on property records for Ms. Johnson’s home in Vail and several land parcels in Dutchess County, N.Y., north of New York City. She also owned 20,000-square-foot triplex in Manhattan’s Trump International Hotel and Tower, which was valued in 2001 at $62.3 million, and a farm in Millbrook, New York, with its private heliport..
She established an orphanage in Phnom Penh in 2003. The complex, which cost a reported $10 to $15 million, has a nursery school and group homes, where 55 abandoned children are housed with foster parents in family-like settings.
Allegedly Had an affair with her (much younger) niece’s boyfriend Casey Johnson (who is Anderson Cooper’s cousin by marriage)
Libet’s grandfather, Robert Wood junior, also known as the General, built Johnson and Johnson into the $171.5 billion pharmaceutical empire. A tyrant who by all accounts deserved his nickname, the General heaped abuse on his only son and namesake, Libet’s father, eventually expelling him from the family company in 1965. Humiliated and weakened by alcoholism, Libet’s father died of cancer just five years later, at age 50. In 1975, two of Libet’s brothers died—Billy in a motorcycle crash, Keith of a drug overdose. Their inheritance passed to Libet and her other two brothers, Woody and Christopher, making them equally—and exceedingly—rich.
Died in 2017 from Alzheimer’s at the age of 66.

2020.06.28 23:44 WILDFYRE2620 My First Weekend League and How EA Ruined It (WL Recap)

Intro
Due to the fact I've never reached the Weekend League before, I thought I'd summarise my WL for you guys, the headings are in bold if you want to skip through them. Hope you enjoy.
Prelude
Having upgraded from FIFA 18 to FIFA 20 in March, after a worldwide pandemic was announced, I found myself starting my Ultimate Team club with very little ambition or hopes for the future. Being a college student in Ireland who commutes 750km (466mi) a week, I also found an excuse to purchase FIFA Points more frequently than the average FIFA player, which partly explains my current team. I had been an avid FUT player back in the so-called 'Golden Days' of FIFA and its online community, probably spending close to thousands of hours building my 184 team and repeatedly winning Division 1 in both FIFA 14 and FIFA 15's Ultimate Team modes, rarely, if ever investing real life currency into the game. I went on to not purchase FIFA 16 at launch, likely due to a sense of boredom and monotony with regards to the various game modes I had milked months of entertainment out of. I later had the opportunity to play the game via Game Sharing on the Xbox One, however I did not possess the same drive to play it as I had for two years previous. As I grew older, the game underwent a number of changes, and it became immediately apparent that FUT was officially the Cash Cow of the franchise. Gone were the days of players receiving cards based on merit, instead players who had potential to entice children and adults alike to purchase packs were given hugely upgraded cards.
Looking on from the sideline, I became disinterested in the new Ultimate Team, and would not buy another FIFA game until FIFA 17 in December 2018. I played friendlies against mates and also played the career mode periodically, however I once again never committed to making my Ultimate Team, once again. Moving on eight months or so, I picked up a second-hand copy of FIFA 18 for 10 euro in Gamestop. I once again enjoyed playing career mode and friendlies against friends, even falling in love with a team from the Polish First Division known as Sandecja. I switched Sandecja with West Ham in career mode, going on to win the Europa League after seven seasons with the club, another highlight being when I beat my mate 4-2 while he played as Real Madrid.
I've gone through my experience with FIFA to date as a means of communicating, to you, the reader, how inexperienced I am at the online side of this game. While I placed blocks in Minecraft or spent hours conquering all of the Mediterranean Sea in Rome: Total War, my friends would play FIFA, playing their forty games at the weekend and completing SBC's. As I go forward with this recap, I am really trying not to come across as a whiny child who wants to whinge about how unfair this game is. We have all seen the threads on why this game is 'unfavourable', to say the least. I am attempting, as a below-average player, to purely make observations on the game, my own level of skill, as well as the actions of other players I have met along my first ever Weekend League journey.
The Preparation
I thought it would be important to mention that my new controller that I had purchased three weeks prior to this event decided to stop working entirely shortly before the event. I was forced to use my controller that I received with the console at launch, that had a faulty left bumper. Surprisingly, I had not broken this controller in a fit of rage, and instead had simply dropped it one day when i took my headset off. Obviously, this is not an excuse for my poor game-play, but it took some time to realise that I was able to switch to another player using the right stick.
I had had no intentions of taking part in Weekend League in this FIFA, after hearing friends of mine break down in the Xbox Party over the games, refereeing decisions, and general injustices experienced by them. I am, by no means a cool, calm and collected person when I am losing, least of all in FIFA, however, as FIFA had always been a means of immersing myself in more football content, I was generally fairly satisfied to mess about when playing the game, as evidenced by the fact I lost more than 10 straight online seasons playing as Sandecja against my mate in FIFA 18. I had been desperately playing games in Rivals prior to reaching 2000 FUT Champion Points, in an attempt to upgrade my left-back spot, which was being occupied by Marcelo. 93 Mendy eventually made his way into my team, which was ideal, as weeks prior, I had completed the 96 Modric SBC which provided scope for a green link to both himself and 85 Varane at LCB.
Ironically, there was not much preparation on my part for the event, I refused to put the time aside to invest in some Squad Fitness Cards, and at the time of the event beginning, I had but 8 Gold Squad Fitness cards in my club. All that was left for me to do was to wait for Friday to roll around, and start my Weekend League journey. I was completely aware of my own ability, and honestly, was not expecting to gain a spot on the Top 100 at any point throughout the week. I had set myself the optimistic target of Silver 1, understanding that I would be doing well to reach Silver 3 at all.
The Team
https://preview.redd.it/eoqeuoa85p751.png?width=986&format=png&auto=webp&s=4bb6feaa8d63c592f5b8fc96988daf21ba101fde
My team has changed fairly frequently over the last few weeks, with upgrades across the entire field. I played the squad in a 4-3-3 (4) formation, which is supposedly meant to be an optimal pick for hybrid teams, which this one is.
Goalkeeper
I went with Winter Refresh Areola (87), who has been the epitome of a polar goalkeeper. This man will save shots that not even Roy Keane in his prime could save. Other times, I will find him signing autographs in the crowd as the opposition whips in a corner. Overall, he is a solid pick however, with good links to Varane and Hernandez being the reason I picked him up in April.
The Defence
In the RB position I have stuck with Winter Refresh Lainer (88) since I picked him up from the Bundesliga SBC in April. This card was easily my best player for a long while thereafter, and with 93 pace, he excels at legging it up and down the wing to assist the forwards.
RCB was a position that had been occupied by FUT Birthday Lucas Hernandez for the past few weeks, however currently in that position is Shapeshifters David Alaba (88). I picked him up the day before the Weekend League began, in the Party Bag SBC. This may seem like a poor pull when the other cards possible to be packed are considered, however this card fit my team perfectly, gaining a green link with Lainer, Sabitzer, and Hernandez, and a red link with Areola.
At LCB, FUT Birthday Hernandez (88) settled in nicely, replacing Varane, who moved to the bench following the acquisition of Alaba as mentioned prior. This card has always been solid for me at the back in Rivals, with bountiful pace as well as upgraded 5* Skill Moves which are completely wasted on me.
At LB, to nobody's surprise, is Summer Heat Mendy (93). This card is almost wasted at LB, having stats that would put any position to shame. As I attempted to earn this card by assisting ten goals in Rivals Wins, I would play him at ST in a 3421 formation. As a result of that success, I implemented this formation under my Ultra-Attacking tactic, and would start every game with this tactic over the Weekend League, more on those tactics later.

The Midfield
At LCM, Flashback Luca Modric (96) held down his position quite easily. I feel like EA released Modric, Mendy and Perisic around the same time in order to force Bundesliga/La Liga hybrids, and I can honestly say I am delighted they did. Modric has contributed to an insane amount of goals along with my other midfielders, and coupled with a hunter chemistry style, he gained amazing pace and shooting boosts before I made a number of changes to the squad which reduced these boosts.
At CAM, I used End of An Era David Silva (94). I was unfortunately unable to afford the premium version of this card, however the 94 version is easily the best CAM I have used on a FIFA to date. Despite not having 99 Pace, like a number of other cards that may be used in the CAM spot, he makes up for this with an incredible passing accuracy and a thunderbolt of a left foot which unleashes a flurry of finesse shots all across the board.
The last midfield spot is occupied by TOTSSF Marcel Sabitzer (92). Sabitzer, in spite of only having 3* skills and a 4* weak foot, truly keeps up with Modric and Silva on the right hand side of midfield, flanked by his fellow countryman Stefan Lainer. Originally a CAM, he does supreme work in his new spot.
The Forwards
When EA released the Summer Heat Ivan Perisic (94) card, to me, it was like the stars had aligned. As a LW player in a 4-3-3 (4) formation, he would receive 8 chem with two orange links. Naturally, I said goodbye to all of the totssf moments cards that were unused in my club, and traded a squad in for him. He is, simply put, incredible. The numbers he puts up for me, a below-average player, should encourage anyone who may be saving him for an sbc, to instead build a squad around him. With a Hawk Chemistry Style he has 99 Pace. Need I say more?
A converted CAM, Prime Icon Socrates (91) puts in a good shift at ST, having more goals than games, and half as many assists before the Weekend League event. I pulled him from my one and only Prime Icon Upgrade pack, and am delighted I did. At 6'4", he is (literally) head and shoulders above the rest of the attack.

Dodgy camera quality but the web app doesn't show assists.
In the RW position sits Ones To Watch Thorgan Hazard (86), who was drafted in purely because I did not enjoy playing with Inform Gnabry. To be fair to the younger Hazard brother, he has far exceeded his expectations, notching a goal every three games, (24/72). He links up particularly well with Socrates and Lainer, who often create goals with fine interplay.
Subs
The four subs I used most frequently were Shapeshifters Lucas Moura (87), Player Moments Trézéguet (87), Raphael Varane (85), and Inform Allan (86). Moura would come on for either Silva or Sabitzer, generally around the 60 minute mark, and often times Allan would also come on for either Modric, or whichever other midfielder had tired the second most. Varane would make an appearance as a third CB in a back five, whenever I went two goals up in the second half, while Trézéguet would come on usually for Hazard or Perisic to hassle the tiring opposition and assist the ailing forwards of my team.

The Weekend League
Friday
On Friday, I met up with a group of friends and (socially distant), played Mario Kart Wii for the day. We also watched Team America: World Police, which I cannot recommend enough for purveyors of comedy. To be frank, I had completely forgotten about Weekend League and organised to meet them. I find it is exceptionally important to meet with people of your own age after being at home for so long, it is somewhat liberating.
At about nine o'clock, I returned home and prepared myself for what was about to come. I logged on to FIFA, went into a party with a mate who was playing Rivals, and I entered the FUT Champs page. In the first game I played, I went 2-0 down almost immediately to a French TOTSSF side, however I pulled it back to 2-2 in the 69th minute. Normally, that would be nice, however, this was the first event in a recurring series of events I will refer to as a 'Hey Wildfyre, F**k You', or 'HWFY', moment. As I broke forward in the 71st minute after Areola intercepted a weak pass from TOTSSF Mbappe through to TOTSSF Ben Yedder, the servers decided they'd had enough and kicked me out of the game. Now. It is important to mention this now before somebody calls me out for it, but no, my internet connection is not the issue. Everybody in my home connects to their mobile data during the day. I was in the party, chatting to my mate, no lag, no reverb, completely fine when this happened. There was no lag in-game, nor was there any freezes, the game simply could not handle the sexy Alphonse Areola interception, and gave up. You can imagine how shocked I was, that in my first ever game of FUT Champs, the servers died. I was rightfully frustrated, you would expect that a multi-billion dollar corporation could handle a weekly online event, but I digress. I don't wish to turn this essay into me simply complaining for 5000 words after all.
I gave EA the benefit of the doubt and continued playing throughout the evening. I actually forced a rage-quit halfway through the first half of the second game I played, after a Socrates brace and a Hazard masterclass gave me a 3-0 lead. Thus far, I was surprised that I hadn't been completely annihilated by my opponents, given how frequently it happened in normal Division Rivals. Regardless, I continued onto my third game, where I held my 193 opponent to 0-0 until the 67th minute, I would even go as far as to say I was dominating him in all aspects of the game. Wait. What's that? Do I hear the familiar chirping of a HWFY moment? Oh yes, there it is. My opponent was the unlucky one this time, disconnecting midway through an attack. Two out of three games end in a disconnection. Luckily for me, I don't receive a loss on my record, and simply am reverted back to Game 3. Naturally, I was slapped 5-2 by a Messi, Mbappe, Neymar front three, I never really grabbed a foothold in the game, and if anything, proved to Setién how important it is to make that front three his priority in his remaining time in charge of the Catalan club.
By my count, it has been one game since a HWFY moment, so naturally, EA pulled through and caused two in the fourth game. Firstly, in a corner kick situation, the man-mountain David Silva leaped like Michael Jordan and beat the pre-pubescent Socrates to a header, and Areola was left stunned as the ball looped over his cranium. At this point, I had become accustomed to this game testing my patience. I was at peace with myself. And then the EA Servers apologised to me for that header by disconnecting me once again. So far, that is a 60% disconnection rate. Alas, I will allow it again. Covid-19 is sure to have effected how many employees can work on the servers at one time. I would say that is a character flaw of mine, letting people off too easily, but again, I digress.
In Game 5, I learned that I do not know how to take penalties. Seriously. This game improved penalties for the most part, according to my friends, however I simply can't convert them. This proved to be my downfall, as TOTSSF Benzema punished me akin to Ryan Giggs against Arsenal, linking up with TOTSSF Toni Kroos to score in the 89th minute after a fine TOTSSF Ter Stegen save directly down the middle. I won Game 6. It was fairly standard honestly, Socrates grabbed a brace and Perisic put the game to bed in injury time to give me a 3-1 win. My good spirits were thrown off a rather high ravine, only for the spirits to be impaled on a piece of drift wood in a fast-moving rapid below, tumbling down a waterfall which led into Katie Hopkins' back garden. If you misinterpreted that metaphor to be a good occurrence, you need to sort yourself out mate. EA served me another HWFY moment, disconnecting me in the third minute of the game. I would like to take this opportunity to apologise to my mate who was in the Xbox Live Party with me at the time, as he was forced to listen to me curse the EA Gods to the high heavens for twenty minutes after. I switched over to SSX3 for the evening, which is an example of an EA title which instils only joy, and doesn't rely on lootbox mechanics and depression mechanics to influence my playstyle. If you play on Xbox, this game is backwards compatible from the original Xbox, and is also enhanced for the Xbox One X. A massive bargain.
Saturday
I started off the day with a fairly standard win, missing a penalty in the process, as well as causing the opponent to rage-quit at 60'. I lost Game 9 3-0, courtesy of a Prime Icon Henry hat-trick. I went on to win the next two games, once again fairly standard. At this point my record was 4-7, and I had entered Bronze 1. I was doing much better than expected, and could have done even better without disconnections and HWFY moments. I progressed rather poorly in the next game, I was beginning to pick up on mistakes I would make during games, more often than not relying on the left bumper to switch players, completely unaware that I could use the left stick. The lack of switching input often resulted in spectacular mini-rants about the positioning of my players, which my mates would often have to listen to. Game 13 resulted in another disconnection on my part, taking our total number of disconnections at this point to 5. I had been 2-0 down for the majority of the game, but nevertheless I was not impressed. I probably voiced my displeasure for quite a while to my mates.
Game 14 ended prematurely in the first half, with the score tied at 1-1. This was due, in full, to the other guy's EA Agent spilling his coffee over his control board, resulting in a disconnection on his part. In Game 14b, I was mercilessly embarrassed by a TOTSSF Benzema and PIM Gullit strike-force duo, who repeatedly sweated the ball across the six-yard box and left Areola with an egg on his face. In Game 15 Areola made an incredible save from a Perisic free-kick, catching the ball on his chest and deflecting it off the crossbar into his own goal. I am honestly not sure whether this man is a future-legend or whether he'll be playing for Bolton in three years. This was the only mess-up he made, and we actually went on to win the game 4-1, with a hat-trick of assists from David Silva and a brace from Modric putting the game beyond the opponent's reach.
There was somebody at EA watching down on me with a face of pity that evening, as I was graced with a 186 opponent for the first time during the Weekend League event. I won the game 8-0, and I have to tip my fedora to the man who sat there for 12+ minutes as I kept scoring with Socrates. The EA agent then fired three consecutive lightning bolts at my team, rendering them unable to move their legs, as they were, without any mercy, struck down thrice by three consecutive 193 teams. I called it a day there, ending Saturday with a record of 7-12.
Sunday
This was it. Judgement Day. Already having surpassed my expectations by reaching Silver 3 before 20 games played, I hopped on the Xbox this morning with a optimistic outlook on life. It was raining outside, but even the s****y weather and world situation couldn't dampen my spirit. The Law of Attraction is the belief that positive or negative thoughts bring positive or negative experiences into a person's life. Now, if you ever need proof that there is a higher deity out there somewhere, look no further than my Sunday morning. I would go on to win five games out of five that morning, forcing a 12-minute rage-quit to clinch Silver 2, leaving me with ten games to get three wins. Games 21,22 and 23 all were close to the end, however, I relied on a late brace from Lucas Moura off the bench in Game 22 to win 3-2, and I also finally scored a penalty with Socrates in Game 23 in the 82nd minute to officially enter the Silver 1 bracket. I was buzzing at this point, my record was 11-12, and I decided to push on to try and get to Gold 3. Game 24 was, perhaps the best game of the entire event. Having gone 2-0 down and later 3-1 down, a fightback spear-headed by Perisic and Hazard resulted in Extra Time. The sides still weren't separated after Extra Time, which left only one thing. In all my time playing Ultimate Team, I had never had a penalty shoot-out before. My one saving grace in this penalty shoot-out however, is that I am very good at saving penalties, due, in part to the fact there is a 33% chance to save a shot with Areola. And save them, he did.
Allan converted the first penalty, placing his penalty in the bottom-right corner, punching his fist in the air triumphantly as he turned and walked back to a delighted MuddaRusha side. It was then that PIM Vieira stepped up for the opposition side. He went right. Areola went right. The ball went right. Right past the right post as Areola turned it around the corner flag. 1-0. Lucas Moura stepped up then to take my sode's second penalty. Unfortunately this Brazilian was unable to replicate his fellow countryman's effort, placing it wild. Told you I can't score penalties. TOTSSF Savanier stepped up for the opposition and coolly placed it beyond Areola's outstretched hands. 1-1. It was then that the man, the myth, the legend, Socrates, stepped up and placed the ball on the penalty spot. He banged the penalty in top left hand corner, to the jubilation of the many fans who had rocked up to Old Trafford to watch this monumental match between MuddaRusha and Your Girls XI. Areola also parried away the opposition's third spot-kick, leaving Mbappe evidently heartbroken. David Silva had his weak shot saved, as the keeper kept his feet firmly planted on the soil beneath him. TOTSSF Ben Yedder converted, placing the ball straight down the middle, leaving Areola on the ground. It was then that Ferland Mendy sent Mandanda the wrong way, firing the ball to the left of the French keeper. The final penalty taker, a young man known as Neymar Jr, started his run-up head on to the ball, and for what seemed like an eternity, jogged up to the ball, side footing the ball to the right side of the goalmouth. Areola also jumped to the right, and with his fingers outstretched, parried the ball away for a MuddaRusha win. And like that, we went even at 12-12.

I bought him when he was very expensive, his price has crashed recently I believe.
At this point, I needed 2 wins from 6 games to clinch Gold 3, which was much, much more than I had ever envisaged before I registered. What followed, unfortunately, were three 194 teams, all of which had a mix of TOTSSF Ultimate red picks, and a number of Prime Icons. I was up against it, and lost all three matches comprehensively. I bounced back in Game 28, forcing a rage-quit against a 191 squad courtesy of a Stefan Lainer goal and assist for Hazard inside ten minutes. Game 29 played out similarly enough to Games 25,26 and 27, I got annihilated by my old friend Marcelo, who had changed to a CAM, along with Neymar.
This was the last game. Game 30. My record was 13-16. If you had told me I would win 13/29 games I would have laughed in your face. I was drawn against a 193 Bundesliga/Prime Icon team. Of course. I took the lead inside 20 minutes with a finesse shot outside of the box, thanks to Ivan Perisic. What followed was a quick flurry of goals from POTM Kai Havertz, which left me 2-1 down before half-time. I brought on Moura, and Allan, as standard, hoping to salvage the game. And salvage I did. I scored a brace with Socrates, with my two Brazilian Super Subs assisting one each.
The funny thing about life, is that a number of different cultures and religions have all come to the same sort of conclusion about our lives, here on Earth. That conclusion, is that often times, everything eventually comes full circle, to create a cycle. My Weekend League was no different. You may have noticed a significant decrease in the amount of HWFY moments throughout this account. They may have happened here and there, along the way, gameplay-wise, however to include them would detract from the biggest HWFY moment of them all. At 79 minutes, of my final Weekend League Match, while leading the game and dominating for the win, I was logged out of the EA servers one. last. time.
I had finished 13-17, with a total of five disconnections resulting in five DNF penalties for me. I had clinched Silver 1, which was my ultimate goal, but had been royally pounded by EA in the process. Like I said before, I hate to be the guy who jumps on the EA reddit whenever he gets ruined by the game, but this was too tragic a story not to tell.

So near, and yet, so far
Observations Overall, I am not really in a position to complain about the gameplay I experienced over the weekend. Naturally there is going to be bugs and glitches all over the place, such as Areola chesting the ball into his own net, or hardware issues leading to goals on my part. In general, FUT Champs is certainly a step-up from Rivals, and that is to be expected. In terms of other people's attitudes in-game, I found them to be much less toxic than in Rivals, unless they are ahead by a large margin.
The players I found the most trouble dealing with would definitely be Mbappe, Benzema and Henry. These three players tore my team to shreds on all occasions, my pacey defense simply couldn't deal with them. I had Mbappe curling shots in from miniscule angles, Benzema leaving ten outfield players broken in a heap, and Henry, simply, is untouchable in attack.
As for the EA Servers ruining the Weekend League for me, if anything it encouraged me to attack quicker and much more frequently during the games, just in case, in the cases of games 3a and 14a, the other player disconnects during a draw. Having a goal advantage results in a win in those occasions, this new factor, being the possibility the EA servers committing Seppuku, almost inspired attacking gameplay for me, which says a lot, considering I was playing a 3421 formation in-game as it was.
Tactics
As you can see above, the team is laid out in a 4-3-3 (4) formation to begin with. This is the case for defensive, balanced, and attacking playstyles. I would always begin each match in an ultra-attacking playstyle, where-in Mendy moves to CM alongside Silva, Sabitzer and Modric move out to the wings, and the front three remain the same. If I was leading coming towards the end of the match, I would change to an Ultra-Defensive playstyle, wherein Silva generally would come off for Varane, and I would switch to a 5-4-1 formation. I found 3421 to be extremely effective on the counter-attack.

I personally love to pass my way into an opponent's box in this year's FIFA, which doesn't appear to be the meta from what I have experienced. I found teams with a front three along with attacking midfielders tough to deal with if I was dispossessed going forward, as Alaba, Hernandez and, to a lesser extent, Lainer, would run out of steam fairly quickly in the second half.
Summary
Overall, I would probably say the Weekend League was a success for me, as I achieved my goal and more. I don't plan to compete next week, but will probably return the week after, hopefully with a Summer Heat Bruno Fernandes card on the bench, or in the team somewhere. It was certainly an experience, to say as little as possible lest I cry. I may be back next week. In the meantime, enjoy your week.

2020.06.23 13:57 rusticgorilla [Lost in the Sauce] KY cuts thousands of polling locations ahead of primary

Welcome to Lost in the Sauce, keeping you caught up on political and legal news that often gets buried in distractions and theater… or a global health crisis.
Housekeeping:

Mueller report

On Friday, the Justice Department released a slightly-less-redacted version of the Mueller report.
Donald Trump was told in advance that Wikileaks would be releasing documents embarrassing to the Clinton campaign and subsequently informed advisors that he expected more releases would be coming… In July 2016, Roger Stone told Trump as well as several campaign advisors that he had spoken with Julian Assange and that WikiLeaks would be publishing the documents in a matter of days.
The newly unredacted portions of the Mueller report also show that after the initial email dump by WikiLeaks, Trump personally asked Manafort to keep in touch with Stone, who in turn told the then-campaign chairman to keep him “apprised of any developments with WikiLeaks.” Investigators were also told by Gates that Trump had multiple phone conversations with Stone during the campaign and that, following one call held en route to LaGuardia airport, “Trump told Gates that more releases of damaging information would be coming.”
Mueller examined whether President Donald Trump lied to him in written answers during the Russia investigation… In written testimony to Mueller’s team in November 2018, Trump denied being aware of any communications between Stone, Manafort, Gates, or Donald Trump Jr and WikiLeaks or Assange. Yet, the newly public portions show that Trump did know about a Stone-Wikileaks connection.
  • Considering the contradictory evidence, the special counsel’s office weighed the possibility that Trump “no longer had clear recollections” of what happened two years earlier, but also wondered whether “the President's conduct could also be viewed as reflecting his awareness that Stone could provide evidence that would run counter to the President's denials and would link the President to Stone's efforts to reach out to WikiLeaks."

More from Bolton

I wrote about the main takeaways from Bolton’s book last week. Since then, we’ve learned a few more details, which I’ll briefly list below. Bolton sat for an ABC interview on Sunday. You can read the transcript here.
In an Axios interview on Friday, Trump said he resisted punishing China for its mass internment of ethnic Uighurs last year for fear of jeopardizing trade talks with Beijing. This confirms a damning claim in Bolton’s book. As NYT writes, it is a blunt admission of Trump’s transactional approach to human rights and willingness to subordinate other U.S. policy priorities to a potential trade deal he considers vital to his re-election.
  • Speaker Nancy Pelosi: “President Trump’s admission that he is looking the other way and enabling one of the worst human rights atrocities of our time in order to ink a trade deal is appalling… Since Day One of his Administration, President Trump has had the tools to hold Chinese officials accountable for these human rights abuses and others including in Hong Kong by deploying sanctions under the 2016 Global Magnitsky Act, yet has refused to do so.”
Bolton said he was worried about leaving Trump alone in a room with Vladimir Putin. “Because I didn't know what he would say,” Bolton continued, “it's certainly not advancing the interests.” (ABC)
Bolton writes that Trump was eager - even desperate - to meet with Putin. Bolton said he saw Trump display “the same fascination with speaking with a leader like Putin that we saw with respect to Xi Jinping and Kim Jong Un… The president himself used to comment on how strange it was that in one trip he took to a NATO summit, a summit with Theresa May, the prime minister of Britain, and then Vladimir Putin in Helsinki that he thought the easiest, most pleasant one might be with Vladimir Putin.” z/story?id=71287825))
Trump compared his courtship of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un to dating and “always wanted to be the one who broke up with the girl first,” Bolton told NPR. “[Trump] used that to describe whether he would cancel the summit with Kim Jong-un first or whether we would risk the North Koreans canceling it.” When NPR interviewer Steve Inskeep asked if the president had “a kind of romantic approach to numerous dictators”, Bolton agreed: “Yeah, I think that’s an accurate description.”
Bolton says Trump “directly” told him his goal last year was to link “military assistance and that opportunity to go after Joe Biden.” "It was a trade. It was a trade of an investigation in exchange for the security assistance,” Bolton says. This is the definition of quid pro quo. z/story?id=71287825))

Russia and Putin

To add to what Bolton recounted about Trump and Putin’s relationship (above), former National Security Council member Fiona Hill told The New Yorker about her experiences…
Hill said Trump’s translator for a 2017 meeting with Putin told her that Trump assured the Russian leader that he believed Putin never meddled in the 2016 election. Trump then took the translator’s notes. At the end of the meeting, Putin told Trump, “Let’s talk later.” The two had a private conversation at dinner with only Putin’s translator present.
  • Later that year, Trump and Putin had another unscheduled exchange, at an economic summit in Da Nang, Vietnam. A White House official who accompanied Trump said he overheard the beginning of the conversation, in which Trump engaged in “mundane small talk” with Putin, before he and his foreign counterparts were escorted out of the room. Hill said, “That’s the one meeting where nobody has any clue about what was discussed.”
The Kremlin and White House are reportedly discussing exchanging Paul Whelan for convicted arms dealer “Merchant of Death” Viktor Bout. In 2011, Bout was convicted by a jury in a Manhattan federal court of conspiracy to kill U.S. citizens and officials, delivery of anti-aircraft missiles, and providing aid to a terrorist organization
  • Matthew Miller, who led Attorney General Eric Holder’s communications team, responded: “This would be a real travesty. Bout has the blood of thousands of people on his hands, and his arrest and extradition was a major U.S. accomplishment that some of our allies helped us with at significant cost.”
Top Democrats introduce bill to stop Trump's Germany withdrawal… Sen. Menendez said in a statement that “This drawdown weakens America and Europe. And Vladimir Putin understands and appreciates that better than anyone.” Rep. Engel added: “President Trump has once again made foreign policy decisions based solely on his absurd affection for Vladimir Putin, a murderous dictator who has attacked America and our allies.”

Congress

Tomorrow, June 24, Mueller prosecutor Aaron Zelinsky and DOJ official John Elias will testify before the House Judiciary Committee about AG Barr’s interference. Zelinsky withdrew from the Roger Stone case when Barr intervened to soften the sentencing recommendation
House Judiciary Chairman Nadler is preparing to subpoena Barr for his testimony on July 2. Nadler is investigating Barr’s involvement in the forced resignation-turned-firing of SDNY prosecutor Berman, as well as the DOJ’s reversal in Michael Flynn’s case.
Both the House Democratic and Senate Republican police reform bills are being brought to the floor this week. McConnell will need seven Democrats to vote in favor of the GOP bill in order to advance the legislation. It is unlikely to be accepted by the House without significant changes.
  • UPDATE: Senate Democrats are indicating that they will block the GOP bill from advancing.
How the two versions compare: The Democratic bill bans chokeholds, while the GOP bill disincentivizes chokehold use (allows it if an officer is “in danger”). Democrats end qualified policing and ban no-knock warrants, but the GOP allow both policies to continue unchanged. Finally, the GOP adds additional funding for police; the Democratic bill does not.

Voting and elections

Kentucky cuts THOUSANDS of polling locations ahead of today’s primary election. The 3,700 voting locations have been reduced to only 170. The biggest cuts per population occurred in counties with the largest black population in the state. This election will determine which Democrat faces Mitch McConnell in November.
  • UPDATE: Fayette County, home of Lexington, seems to have the longest lines this morning. The wait time is reportedly between 1-2 hours and it is now raining on the voters, lines stretching around the block. Linda Blackford, of the Lexington Herald-Leader, is on the scene with updates.
  • UPDATE: Voting is going much smoother in Louisville, where lines are shorter than anticipated.
  • UPDATE: Lexington seemed to be the location with the longest line all day. Reporters on the scene said most voters were in good spirits, though.
  • UPDATE: Polling hours apparently extended and doors reopened in Louisville after officials didn't let people vote who were on the property by the deadline. Some video in this thread - voters banged on the doors to be let in.
  • Op-ed: It is no wonder that a recent study showed that in 2016, residents of entirely black neighborhoods waited 29 percent longer to vote than their counterparts in entirely white neighborhoods. This disparity held up even within the same counties. Far too many election officials accept long lines, election after election, as the “usual.” Others accept long lines in minority communities as a cynical trade-off to ensure that members of their white communities don’t complain. Finally, others seek a partisan advantage.
Meanwhile, though thousands of voters have requested mail-in ballots in an attempt to avoid in-person voting, some have yet to receive them just days before the election date of June 23, when they must be postmarked.
Perhaps indicative of the upcoming troubles in Kentucky, the unemployment line in the state last week was an 8 hour wait from the back of the line. Police turned people away from joining the line eventually, taking their name and number in the hopes of getting a call from a real human to solve the hold/denial of their unemployment application.
A federal judge in Alabama blocked the state from enforcing a trio of restrictions for absentee and curbside voting for the state's July 14 runoff election amid concerns from voters who say they are at a higher risk of severe illness from the coronavirus.
The Texas Democratic Party asked the U.S. Supreme Court to expand access of mail-in ballots to all voters in the state, including those afraid of contracting the coronavirus.
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds said she plans to sign an executive order that would reinstate the voting rights of Iowans who have completed their felony sentences. It is unclear what form such an order would take.
Iowa Republicans added a last minute voter suppression measure to the state budget in an overnight session. The Republicans added new voter identification requirements for early voting.
Vice President Mike Pence and a half-dozen other senior advisers to President Donald Trump have repeatedly voted by mail… More than three years after leaving the Indiana governor's residence, Pence still lists that as his official residence and votes absentee accordingly (which Trump would define as voter fraud if a Democrat did such a thing).

  • Trump let Nigel Farage break coronavirus travel rules “in the national interest” to attend his Tulsa rally. Chairman of the House Homeland Security Cmte. Bennie Thompson requested documents from DHA on its decision to wave the coronavirus travel ban.

  • Federal court rules that ICE can no longer enter NY courthouses just to arrest alleged undocumented immigrants
  • Authorities transferred hundreds of people between shadowy immigration prisons, ignoring the coronavirus threat.

Miscellaneous

News stories that didn’t fit in previous categories.

2020.06.20 16:28 rusticgorilla Barr illegally tries to force out SDNY US Atty. Berman, who is investigating Trump's allies. Berman refuses to resign.

EDIT TO UPDATE: Attorney General Barr says that Trump has fired Geoffrey Berman.
In a letter, AG Barr says that Trump has officially fired Berman. “You have chosen public spectacle over public service. Because you have declared that you have no intention of resigning, I have asked the President to remove you as of today, and he has done so.” — Barr
Barr does NOT appoint an outside official as acting Atty (last night he tried to install Carpenito). Instead, Berman's deputy (Strauss) will take his place for now. Vladeck believes Barr has likely addressed the legal concerns:
I still think that there’s a non-frivolous argument that Berman can’t be fired even by the President, but that’s the weakest claim here—compared to whether Barr could fire him or whether Barr or Trump could name Carpenito as his successor.
This letter moots both of those issues.
Trump, however, speaking to reporters shortly after Barr's letter was made public, said, "That's his department, not my department." He added: "I'm not involved." (video)
Berman confirmed he is leaving now that the job is safe with his deputy.
Worth noting that Geoffrey Berman succeeded at blowing up William Barr's mob lawyer routine and forcing out into the open the fact that Trump is the one who fired him for the simple act of investigating Trump's corruption.
EDIT 2: Since people appear to be confused, here is the summary:
Last night Barr tried to force Berman out. The law says that Barr cannot fire him. So today President Trump (apparently) fired him. Additionally, Barr illegally tried to place his own pick in Berman's place. Once Barr backed off from that and allowed Berman's trusted deputy to be the successor - which is legal - Berman agreed to leave the position. In other words, yesterday Barr was illegally doing a bunch of things. Today, the right protocol was followed. A toadie is not immediately taking control of the office of SDNY - Berman's deputy has time to preserve any investigations/materials.

POST MADE SATURDAY MORNING BELOW

This post focuses on the legality of the move, what happens next, and why Barr wants Berman gone

Background: What happened

Last night, Attorney General Bill Barr released an official statement announcing the resignation of the current U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey Berman. Barr also says that Trump intends to nominate a permanent replacement and has appointed an acting-replacement in the meantime:
“I am pleased to announce that President Trump intends to nominate Jay Clayton, currently the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, to serve as the next United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York…
On my recommendation, the President has appointed Craig Carpenito, currently the United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey, to serve as the Acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, while the Senate is considering Jay Clayton’s nomination. This appointment will be effective July 3…
This announcement was sudden and unexpected.
However, roughly an hour later, Geoffrey Berman put out his own statement disputing the official DOJ narrative:
Berman: I learned in a press release from the Attorney General tonight that I was “stepping down” as United States Attorney. I have not resigned, and have no intention of resigning, my position, to which I was appointed by the Judges of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. I will step down when a presidentially appointed nominee is confirmed by the Senate. Until then, our investigations will move forward without delay or interruption. I cherish every day that I work with the men and women of this Office to pursue justice without fear or favor - and intend to ensure that this Office’s important cases continue unimpeded.
Ensuing media reports fleshed out what occurred between Barr and Berman. Barr tried to get Berman to step down and accept a different position. Berman declined, so Barr asked him to resign. Berman refused again… and apparently Barr decided to try to force him by making a public announcement.
A Justice Department official told CNN that Berman was offered other positions at Justice, including the head of the civil division, where assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt abruptly announced his departure this week. Berman declined.
A second source with knowledge of the matter said Berman was asked to resign and refused. Barr asked Berman to resign in an in-person meeting in New York on Friday, the source said.

What next?

There are significant legal questions at play here: Can Berman even be fired?
Professor in Law at the University of Texas School of Law Steve Vladeck points out that Berman was appointed by the courts, not by the president. This was done because Trump neglected to nominate anyone as US Attorney for SDNY after Preet Bharara was fired. According to 28 U.S.C. § 546(d), Berman cannot be removed by the Attorney General until the vacancy is filled through the Senate confirmation of a permanent successor.
However, another statute conflicts: 28 U.S.C. § 541(c) says U.S. Attorneys are subject to removal by the President (Vladeck).
Finally, another complication (Vladeck):
Because Berman was appointed under 546(d), even if the President can remove him, he can only be replaced by: (1) Someone nominated by the President & confirmed by the Senate; or (2) Someone else appointed by judges under 546(d).
Carpenito is neither of those.
To summarize: Legally, Barr can't fire Berman. Berman can be replaced by a Senate-confirmed successor. But it is not clear whether Trump can fire Berman and whether BarTrump can name his replacement without Senate confirmation.
Then, to add yet another legal complication, the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) has a 1979 opinion concluding that the President - but not the Attorney General -can fire a U.S. Attorney appointed under § 546(d). However, the OLC is not a court and has unusually expansive views on presidential power (as you’ve likely noticed regarding Trump).

Why did this happen?

That’s the big question and one we can only speculate at, for now.
It is clear that Bar - the Attorney General of the United States - lied in an official Justice Department statement. We don’t know what Barr thought this would accomplish… perhaps he is used to bullying people and expected it to work in this instance.
As Vladeck mentions, it is possible that Berman’s removal was motivated by a desire to close certain on-going investigations:
The key question to me regarding Berman: was his firing the result of a slow burn (unwillingness to bend to Barr’s micromanagement, repeated demonstrations of independence) or to prevent some imminent action?
In other words, were Trump and Barr trying to remove a general or a specific threat — Trump has been trying to take on both through firings of IG’s and other actions. Either way, it’s grossly corrupt.
What is SDNY investigating?
The biggest investigation that comes to mind involves Rudy Giuliani:
In October, prosecutors charged two of Giuliani's associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, with campaign-finance crimes, and since then investigators have expanded their inquiry to include Giuliani. Authorities are examining his business dealings with the Soviet-born men in Ukraine, and FBI agents and prosecutors have questioned witnesses about their potential or actual business arrangements with Giuliani, his work on the ground in Ukraine and the identities of his clients… (CNN)
Federal prosecutors investigating associates of Rudy Giuliani have launched a broad investigation that could include criminal charges ranging from conspiracy, obstruction of justice, campaign finance violations and money laundering… (CNN)
NEW: SDNY & FBI have been actively interviewing witnesses in the Giuliani/Parnas/Fruman probe in the past month. In April, during talks about delaying the trial date for Parnas & Fruman as a result of the pandemic, SDNY told parties in the case that they expected to file a superseding indictment no later than the end of July, per one of the ppl familiar. (Link)
SDNY was also investigating the state-owned Turkish bank, Halkbank, resulting in a six-count indictment for “fraud, money laundering, and sanctions offenses related to the bank’s participation in a multibillion-dollar scheme to evade U.S. sanctions on Iran.”
Tensions between Barr and Berman existed for months over the Halkbank case. Barr reportedly pushed Berman to settle and avoid indicting the bank:
...Southern District of New York prosecutors believe that their leader, Geoffrey Berman, has defended the office's relative autonomy, particularly since Barr's arrival, according to people familiar with the matter.
Barr, these people said, has attempted to micromanage certain cases, asking more questions and for more frequent updates than his predecessors on matters from Berman.
Berman has bristled at those demands, according to these people, and has repeatedly pushed for actions on certain politically sensitive cases in opposition to Justice Department leadership, most notably the indictment in October of the state-owned Turkish bank, Halkbank.
According to a person familiar with the discussions, Barr personally spearheaded an effort last year to negotiate a settlement with the bank that would have allowed it to sidestep an indictment after Turkey's President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, pressed Trump in a bid to avoid charges. Berman, however, insisted on criminal prosecution, according to the people familiar with the matter.
Furthermore, John Bolton’s book even mentions Halkbank and SDNY:
Bolton says Trump told Turkey's president that he would clean house at Berman's office and put his own "people" in charge so that they could derail an investigation into a Turkish bank. (source)
Bolton claimed that during a 2018 phone call Erdoğan sent Trump a memo insisting that the scandal-hit Halkbank was innocent. “Trump then told Erdoğan he would take care of things, explaining that the [New York] southern district prosecutors were not his people but were Obama people, a problem that would be fixed when they were replaced by his people,” Bolton wrote. (The Guardian)
  • Reminder: Berman's predecessor, Preet Bharara, was also looking into matters involving Turkey and Erdogan prior to his firing.
Other investigations include the Epstein-Prince Andrew probe. Under Berman's leadership, his office prosecuted Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen and named Trump as "individual number 1" in court documents.
Mr. Trump had been discussing removing Mr. Berman for some time with a small group of advisers, the person said. Mr. Trump has been upset with Mr. Berman ever since the Manhattan prosecutor’s office pursued a case against Mr. Cohen. (NYT)
Additionally, keep in mind that the public likely isn’t aware of all the important investigations being conducted by SDNY.

Final thoughts...

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler has invited Berman to testify at an upcoming hearing featuring Aaron Zelensky, who prosecuted Roger Stone. Zelinsky withdrew from the case after Barr intervened to seek a lighter sentence. We do not know if Berman will accept this offer.
America is right to expect the worst of Bill Barr, who has repeatedly interfered in criminal investigations on Trump’s behalf. We have a hearing on this topic on Wednesday. We welcome Mr. Berman’s testimony and will invite him to testify.
It is worth taking a quick look at who BarTrump want to lead SDNY instead: Jay Clayton, the Chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Prior to working for the government, Clayton defended Deutsche Bank in the Russian money-laundering scandal. Recall that Deutsche Bank has reportedly loaned billions of dollars to Trump’s company, and to companies controlled by the family of his son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Clayton is not a litigator and has no experience as a prosecutor.

2020.06.19 13:39 kittehgoesmeow What A Day: Something To DACA 'Bout by Sarah Lazarus & Crooked Media (06/18/20)

"Do you get the impression that the Supreme Court doesn’t like me?" - Donald Trump, victim

Dream On

The Supreme Court has blocked President Trump from immediately ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, marking a huge (but not yet permanent) victory for hundreds of thousands of Dreamers. For those keeping score at home, this week’s ratio of Bad News to Good News now stands at an unprecedented 346972957 to 2. Momentum!
While Trump throws a performative tantrum, it’s worth remembering that the Supreme Court has largely rubber stamped his anti-immigration agenda.
Today’s ruling is an important, unexpected reprieve for so many young people, but it’s a temporary one, and the vast majority of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. get no break from the terror of deportation at all. No one’s out of the woods until Trump is out of office, and we have less than five months to make that happen.

Look No Further Than The Crooked Media

On today's Pod Save America, Color of Change Chair Heather McGhee joins Jon Favreau and Dan Pfeiffer as a guest host to talk about Trump’s speech on police reform, the Senate Republican bill, where Joe Biden and the Democrats stand, and how we can ensure that this Black Lives Matter and Defund the Police moment becomes a durable political movement to fight systemic racism. Check out the full episode here → youtube.com/crookedmedia

Under The Radar

Facebook has deactivated dozens of ads from President Trump’s re-election campaign that included a symbol the Nazis used to designate political prisoners in concentration camps. The ads were part of an online effort to manufacture fear of Antifa, and featured a red inverted triangle that the Trump campaign tried to claim was a “widely used” Antifa emblem. (Its supporting evidence for this: a link to a T-shirt on a design-your-own T-shirt website.) There were 88 ads with the symbol in total, and this could be a wacky coincidence, but the number 88 sure is white supremacist code for “Heil Hitler.” Facebook removed the ads for violating its policy against “organized hate.” Now seems like a good time to mention that Trump wants to change liability law to make it harder for social-media platforms to do this kind of thing.

What Else?

Another 1.5 million Americans filed for unemployment benefits over the past week. That makes the 13th straight week that new claims have exceeded one million.
The Senate has confirmed Justin Walker to a lifetime seat on the second-highest court in the country. Walker is a protege of Mitch McConnell, a vocal defender of Brett Kavanaugh, and was deemed “not qualified” by the American Bar Association less than a year ago after his first nomination to a federal court.
Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s promotion to full colonel is reportedly in jeopardy. Multiple government officials expect that Trump will deny it in retaliation for Vindman’s testimony to the House impeachment inquiry.
The heads of four agencies overseen by the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM) were fired on Wednesday night, suggesting that the new Trump-appointed CEO Michael Pack plans to turn the agency into a propaganda mouthpiece for the president.
Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies fatally shot the half-brother of Robert Fuller, the 24-year-old black man who was found hanging from a tree in Palmdale, CA, last week.
The Justice Department asked a judge for an emergency order to block the publication of John Bolton’s book, a few hours after we all learned what’s in it. This is a) a troubling escalation in the White House’s assault on the First Amendment in the interest of protecting Trump’s ego, and b) a little bit fun: By arguing that information in the book is classified, the administration is admitting that the information is true.
Our sociopathic president suggested in a Wall Street Journal interview that people are wearing masks to indicate that they don’t like him, and also said, “I did something good: I made Juneteenth very famous. It’s actually an important event, an important time. But nobody had ever heard of it.”
An Arizona sheriff who vowed not to enforce the state’s stay-at-home order tested positive for the coronavirus ahead of a scheduled meeting with Trump.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) suddenly announced he has a 19-year-old Cuban son. A gobsmacking development in the Large Adult Son universe.

Be Smarter

President Trump has been pushing officials to speed up the already famously “warp speed” Operation Warp Speed, demanding that they produce a vaccine (or something he can call a vaccine) in time to help him win re-election. That worries scientists who fear that Trump’s obsession with the timeline could put pressure on regulators to approve the limited use of a vaccine before it’s been adequately tested for safety and effectiveness. Some have specifically raised the alarm that the administration will authorize a vaccine as an “October surprise,” whether it’s ready or not. Other scientists (and maybe some of the same ones) are alarmed by the fact that Operation Warp Speed has been bypassing time-tested vaccine technologies and funding only newer approaches, effectively gambling that they’ll get lucky in time to help Trump.

2020.06.14 17:06 badgenes94 We Are Sunderland, Episode 3: Onwards and Upward

Previous Episodes:
Prologue
Captain Fantastic Meets The Lads
The Summer of Light
“I’m blessed to have such a motivated squad at my disposal, players who have been scratching and clawing every single game for the glory of this shirt, to once again be worthy of the pride of the Red and White Army. As for the doubters, I’ll tell them the same thing I told some Ipswich fans back in the day…” – Mick McCarthy
As 2019 draws to a close, British football braces for the effects of the novel COVID-19 virus, also known as the coronavirus. Suspected cases are popping up all over the British Isles, and the UK Government, in conjunction with the EPL, EFL, UEFA and, surprisingly given the upcoming Brexit date at the end of January, the EU, are working on a set of contingency plans to ensure that the football season goes on as planned in all affected leagues, EPL and EFL included.
When it comes to Sunderland, though, they remain flying high. At the end of December 2019, Sunderland sits on top of League 1 with its primary goal within sight: Win League 1 and get back to Championship football ASAP. The consistency of the squad has led to the BCF extending the date of enforcing the player age ratio rule (75% under 25) until the start of next season. Meanwhile, the transfer front is picking up, with a final shortlist of young, top-level strikers being determined.
October
Another undefeated run in October ensures that Sunderland starts opening a bit of a gap over on the chasing pack in League 1. Sunderland gave dominant showings against Lincoln City, Fleetwood Town Shrewsbury, with gutsy performances against fighting squads who gave it to the league leaders, such as Tranmere Rovers and Wycombe Wanderers, sprinkled through. Highlights include Kyle Lafferty’s form earning him a League 1 Player of the Month award and Will Grigg getting playing time after an unfortunate injury in the Leasing.com trophy, scoring the winner against Tranmere Rovers, sending The Red Army into a familiar chant.
The Lads also started their Leasing.com Trophy run, with the backup brigade disposing of AFC Wimbledon with a 4-0 win. Dominic Collins, the youth product signed last month, scored his debut goal for the club in that match, a proud moment for the 18-year-old scoring his first professional goal. More worryingly, though, was striker Antoine Semenyo’s injury.
Antoine Semenyo has broken his ankle and will be out for three months, necessitating cover at the striker position. Rumor has it that his loan spell will be terminated. However, given that there are no strikers at the youth squad right now who are eligible to join now, the club will resort to utilizing the transfer-listed Will Grigg as temporary cover until Semenyo is back and/or a new striker is procured. Grigg is delighted with this, as it allows him to advertise himself on the pitch to other clubs.
November
Only 4 matches in November, with Sunderland handily winning three of them, all of which came in the league. Lynden Gooch shone particularly brightly during these three matches, with his dangerous runs at the wing creating openings for all sorts of goals and assists. Also notable is the debut of 17-year old Irish youth product Neil Dunphy.
Meanwhile, in the Leasing.com Trophy, Sunderland’s cup run ends prematurely with the backup brigade being dominated by a Bolton side looking to make a statement. The match ended 1-0 for Bolton, with Sunderland struggling to do anything on offense, and the backup brigade feeling the absence of Semenyo’s speed upfront.
December
The 4-month undefeated streak in League 1 ends, with an already demoralized backup brigade collapsing to a 4-goal rout by Gillingham, clearly showing the gulf in class between them and the first squad. Lafferty would come off the bench to score a goal and assist another, giving Sunderland around 15 minutes to stage a comeback for the ages. But Dunphy’s open goal miss would serve as the death knell to Sunderland’s chances, who go on to lose 4-2. Neil Dunphy’s miss clearly showed deficiencies in a promising lad’s game, including his lack of composure and focus on the offensive end. Observations to ponder for Mick McCarthy.
However, Sunderland would prove the above loss was a bug and not a feature, winning all their remaining matches in the league, with a re-energized backup brigade providing two 1-0 wins. Antoine Semenyo’s return to the squad was particularly effective in re-energizing the backup squad, as he stakes his claim for a role in a potentially title-winning squad. With 7 points between them and the chasing pack and a good form maintained, the sky may very well be the limit in League 1.
Sunderland’s most important cup run yet started this month, with the FA Cup 2nd Round drawing them against Coventry. Sunderland would dispatch them with a 4-0 win, setting them up for a must-win, but very difficult, match against EPL stalwarts Burnley. The BCF wants Sunderland to reach the round of 32 in the FA Cup at least, so Mick McCarthy and his boys have a lot of pressure to finally prevail in a cup run.
Youth Signings
The youth coaches recommend that English RB Morgan Clarke and Irish LM Neil Dunphy be promoted to the first team to further their development. Both lads were signed in October. While Morgan Clarke is believed to have a Championship squad player potential at best, coaches see Neil Dunphy as a more promising player, who has regular EPL starter in him. However, they warn that his attacking work-rate may not be to Coach McCarthy's liking, as it is lower than average. Peculiarly, his defensive work-rate is higher than average.
Meanwhile, in December, three new local lads join the youth squad. While 17-year-old RM Liam Evans and 16-year-old CM Sean Moore figure to be useful Championship level rotation/starting players, 16-year-old Oscar Kelly is a defensive prodigy. Tall, strong and quick with good defensive fundamentals for his age and a pretty good long shot at this level. The coaches believe that if we take care of this kid, he can become a star for us, and therefore should be fast-tracked to the first team.
The BCF is satisfied with the increase of youth player call-ups, with 5 players now called up from the youth squad this year alone by Coach McCarthy.
Transfers
Player Transferred To Transfer Fee
Grant Leadbitter Yokohama F. Marinos £370,000
Max Power SD Huesca £1,050,000
Will Grigg Konyaspor £870,000
With the pressure by the BCF to buy a starting striker building up, Coach McCarthy and his scouting team resolved to build up a shortlist of strikers who can start up top directly and possibly be a long-term solution as well. With that in mind, the list was whittled down to the following 4 choices:
1- Troy Parrott, 17yr old, Rep. of Ireland National, from Tottenham Hotspurs
Already an Ireland international, Parrott is well known by Mick McCarthy, who believes he can become one of the top strikers in the Premier League. With good speed and jumping ability, he's already showing a knack for a good finish, works hard on offense, and can only improve. He is also good at passing, controlling the ball, and dribbling for his age, with a great weak foot. While he might lack some strength, and while many are unsure of him providing the immediate impact the club is looking for, he has immense room to grow. Parrott will cost around 2m pounds.
2- Michael Obafemi, 19yr old, Rep. of Ireland National, from Southampton
Another Irish international talent starting in the EPL, Obafemi has impressed viewers with his great agility, balance, and acceleration, combined with his speed. He is also good in the air and can finish well for his age. A hard worker and 2nd generation footballer who is destined for a future in the Premier League, some believe his height and lack of aggression may impede his early impact. However, he has great room to grow and has already shown his quality in the chances he's been given for club and country. Obafemi will cost around 2m pounds.
3- Tyrese Campbell, 20yr old, England National, from Stoke City.
Currently plying his trade at Championship level, Tyrese Campbell is endowed with the physical skills to make it in football, and possibly at Sunderland. Strong, fast, and good in the air, Campbell has a good finish, can dribble and control a ball, as well as pass it around. He is particularly good at penalties, yet his composure is a bit questionable and needs work. A hard worker on the attacking end, it is believed he will develop to a serviceable EPL talent, who can play in front or at the right side of midfield. He is interestingly a left-footed player but has a good weak foot, and so is capable with both feet. Campbell will cost around 2m pounds.
4- Jonathan Leko, 20yr old, England National, from West Bromwich Albion
Shortlisted for the European Golden Boy award in 2017, Leko has since been plying his trade in the Championship, impressing with his flair, incredible speed, dribbling and ball control. Another versatile talent who can play at the right of midfield, he has a good weak foot and can finish the ball. He is believed to be a man who can make an immediate impact for Sunderland, slotting in Lafferty's place and directly fitting in his place. However, questions abound on whether he can be a long-term piece at Sunderland, a striker who can perform in the EPL. Leko will cost around 1.75m pounds.
The question for today is simple: who of the above should Coach Mick sign in January? This signing will be given the starting striker position, with a view of developing a long-term striker up front, and possibly a future club legend. Choose wisely; the future of the club may depend on it.

2020.05.12 20:43 Giuelith A new Premier League Season

In the intervening period more than £350m has been spent as clubs desperate for success search for the winning formula.
But for all the money that the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham have lavished on new faces, it is United and Chelsea who start the season once again as most people's favourites for the title.
With Uefa Cup places also up for grabs and new boys Birmingham, Derby and Sunderland desperate to preserve their top-flight status it promises to be a fascinating season.
And you can keep up to date with all the action on BBC Sport, including:
Highlights on Match of the Day on Saturday evenings (repeated on Sunday mornings) and MOTD2 on Sunday evenings - this season broadcast simultaneously on the BBC Sport website (UK only).
Features, news and updates on Football Focus and Score on BBC One every Saturday.
Live match text commentary on the website and for mobiles plus all the scores and stats, news, previews, reports and reaction, as well as features, comment, photos and interaction online - including player rater.
Live commentary on Radio Five Live, with reports from the ground at every Premier League game - plus a daily podcast every Sunday-Thursday.

Our 606 website for your views, plus Tim Lovejoy, Alan Green and Spoony on the 606 phone-ins on Radio Five Live every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson celebrated his team's success last season by buying Nani, Anderson and Owen Hargreaves.
And with the drawn-out Carlos Tevez saga finally coming to a close, Ferguson has certainly bolstered his squad as he goes in search of more silverware this season.
Chelsea, in contrast, have had a relatively thrifty summer, with Lyon's Florent Malouda the only big-money arrival.
But the arrival of Tal Ben Haim, Claudio Pizarro and Steve Sidwell on free transfers could be just as siginificant for a squad that struggled with injuries last season.
Those problems have returned, with the likes of John Terry, Didier Drogba, Andrei Shevchenko, Michael Ballack and Wayne Bridge sidelined and several others doubtful for Chelsea's opener against Birmingham.
Expectation will be high at Anfield after Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez spent the summer assembling a squad he believes is capable of challenging for the title.
The likes of Andrey Voronin, Fernando Torres, Yossi Benayoun, Ryan Babel and Lucas Leiva have all arrived over the summer ahead of their opening game at Aston Villa on Saturday.
Tottenham have again spent big and their fans will hope that it allows them to make the leap into the top four at the expense of an Arsenal team coming to terms with the departure of Thierry Henry.
Fulham's Lawrie Sanchez, Bolton's Sammy Lee, Sunderland's Roy Keane, Derby's Billy Davies and Manchester City's Sven-Goran Eriksson start a season as Premier League managers for the first time.
Eriksson's City remain an intriguing and unknown quantity with the former England coach having recently undertaken a spending spree in the region of £40m.
City begin the campaign at West Ham, who have also been active in the transfer market, with Scott Parker, Freddie Ljungberg, Julien Flaubert and Craig Bellamy coming in, and Nigel Reo-Coker and Marlon Harewood going out.
A new era starts at Newcastle under Sam Allardyce, while Aston Villa will expect greater consistency in Martin O'Neill's second season.
Blackburn, Everton, Portsmouth and Reading all enjoyed successful seasons last time and face the difficult task of following those up with high expectations from their fans.
Middlesbrough and Wigan will have aspirations of improving on last season.
It all starts on Saturday, with Sunderland entertaining Tottenham in a 1245 BST kick-off.

2020.05.11 15:44 rusticgorilla Lost in the Sauce: National reopen hearing derailed with 4 in quarantine

Welcome to Lost in the Sauce, keeping you caught up on political and legal news that often gets buried in distractions and theater… or a global health crisis.
TLDR pinned at top of comments
Housekeeping:

Loyalists taking over

Under the cover of a pandemic, the Trump administration is continuing to purge those who are deemed “disloyal” to the president and install individuals willing to advance Trump’s agenda.

Intelligence community

At the beginning of April, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) sent a letter to acting-Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Ric Grenell warning that high-level staff changes within the intelligence community should not be made until a permanent director is in place:
"Congress has neither authorized organizational changes at ODNI, nor appropriated funds for that purpose...The committee is concerned, moreover, by the removal or departure of every Senate-confirmed official at ODNI, as well as of other senior officials across ODNI's leadership team, including [National Counterterrorism Center] Acting Director Russell Travers and Acting Deputy Director Peter Hall."
Both leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee - Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) and Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-VA) - also sent a letter to Grenell insisting that Congress be consulted on any personnel changes.
However, Grenell responded to Schiff’s letter with his own, refusing to provide any information about personnel changes and accusing Schiff of over-extending his committee’s mandate. Grenell likewise did not comply with the Senate’s request for more information.
On Friday, Grenell continued reorganizing the ODNI, eliminating the Directorate of National Security Partnerships and folding its functions into other offices. The directorate coordinates between civilian and defense intelligence agencies. Four separate cyber-focused organizations will be consolidated into a single entity called the IC Cyber Executive, which Grenell says will “provide a single ODNI focus point for the cyber mission, which will strengthen the IC’s cyber posture to better defend U.S. national security interests.”
As part of the reorganization, a top career official was pushed out of her position. Deirdre Walsh spent more than 10 years at ODNI, most recently as chief operating officer. It is unclear who will replace her. Nick Ciarlante, a former staffer to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), recently joined ODNI to serve as a deputy to the COO; he started his job there the same week Walsh was dismissed.
  • Reminder: ODNI has seen a wave of senior departures over the last year, including principal deputy director Sue Gordon; Joseph Maguire, Grenell's predecessor as acting director; principal executive Andrew Hallman; general counsel Jason Klitenic; chief of staff Viraj Mirani; and Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, who was fired by the president.

Pandemic officials

Rear Adm. Timothy Ziemer, once in charge of the National Security Council’s pandemic team (before Trump and Bolton disbanded it in 2018), is leaving the administration. He announced his decision to retire from the U.S. Agency for International Development effective June 5. Ziemer is described as “an authoritative voice on health and disaster issues who was advising others more directly involved in the overall Trump administration response.”
USAID recently acquired a new acting administrator, John Barsa, and there have been some leadership changes as a result. Ziemer, who did not respond to a request for comment, may have felt it was a natural time to depart.
Note that Barsa was a member of Trump’s 2016 campaign and transition team.
Additionally, White House Domestic Policy Council head and coronavirus task force member Joe Grogan, who’s been very involved in the administration’s coronavirus response, is leaving his post on May 24. FEMA is also losing an official with a key role during the pandemic: Josh Dozor, deputy assistant administrator for the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s response group and a 13-year FEMA veteran, is expected to leave the administration in the next few weeks.

Installing loyalists

The nomination of Rep. John Ratcliffe to lead the ODNI is the most well-known example of a Trump-loyalist recently put into power, but there have been many others. In case you missed it, despite being massively unqualified for the job, it appears that Ratcliffe is likely to be confirmed - especially after Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) came out in favor.
Sen. Mark Warner: “I don't see what has changed since last summer when the president decided not to proceed with your nomination over concerns about your inexperience, partisanship, and past statements that seemed to embellish your record." (video
US Postal Service: Louis DeJoy, a top donor to Trump and the RNC, is the new head of the Post office - at a time when Trump is trying to force the service to renegotiate its terms with companies (like Amazon) and its own union workforce. DeJoy was confirmed by the Postal Service’s board of governors, which currently has the minimum number of members for a quorum after Republicans in the Senate denied Obama the opportunity to appoint members for the last three years of his term.
Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D-Va.), chairman of the House subcommittee that oversees the Postal Service, denounced the move as a reward by Trump to a “partisan donor.” … “The Postal Service is in crisis and needs real leadership and someone with knowledge of the issues,” Connolly said. “This crony doesn’t cut it.”
Voice of America: Trump has railed against Voice of America, the U.S. government’s non-military, external broadcasting arm, for its coverage of the coronavirus - which has not been as harsh on China as conservatives would like. VOA is part of the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM), an independent agency that aims to "inform, engage, and connect people around the world in support of freedom and democracy." Trump has used his criticism of VOA to push the Senate to finally confirm his pick to lead USAGM: Michael Pack, a close ally of Stephen K. Bannon’s and a favorite of conservative activists.
“If you hear what’s coming out of the Voice of America, it’s disgusting,” Trump said. “The things they say are disgusting toward our country. And Michael Pack would get in and do a great job.”
Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chair Jim Risch (R-ID) has scheduled a hearing on Thursday this week to advance Pack’s nomination. Democrats on the panel say Pack is not fit to lead the agency due to evidence that he has been funding his own private film company with donations from a nonprofit that he runs.
  • Note: USAGM used to be run by a bipartisan board with nine members. However, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 did away with the board and gave the President the power to nominate a single CEO to lead the agency.
ICE appointees: Acting-Director of ICE Matthew Albence is reportedly resisting an effort by the White House to install multiple political appointees at the immigration agency. The candidates were chosen by White House Presidential Personnel Office chief John McEntee, the 29-year-old former campaign staffer in charge of installing Trump-loyalists across the federal government.
The director’s defenders say he opposed efforts to install the White House’s picks because they didn’t have enough law enforcement experience and weren’t qualified for the roles available. Some did have connections to the 2016 Trump campaign for which McEntee was Donald Trump’s body man and has been drawing people to fill jobs in the administration.
Defense purge: A White House loyalist is being sent (non-paywalled) to the Defense Department to “serve in a behind-the-scenes role vetting Defense Department officials for loyalty to the president.” Michael Cutrone previously served as Vice President Mike Pence’s top national security aide for South Asia.
“[Trump] is pushing to replace and remove civilians in OSD that are not aligned with the White House,” one current senior administration official told Foreign Policy of Cutrone’s plans to reshuffle officials in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. “Esper has no say in who the key people are going into senior positions.”

What is Congress up to?

The Senate returned to DC last week and focused on Sen. Mitch McConnell’s priorities: ramming through controversial nominations. Republicans and the White House say it is too early to consider additional coronavirus relief for the nation: “We’ve kind of paused as far as formal negotiations go,” White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said. McConnell echoed the sentiment, saying “we ought to take a pause here, do a good job of evaluating what we've already done.”
  • House Democrats could bring their version of CARES 2 to the floor for a vote this week. It is a $1.2 trillion+ package that is largely made up of aid to state and local governments. The remainder is funding for hospitals, for COVID-19 testing, for unemployment insurance, and for another round of direct payments to Americans. Additionally, the bill includes $25 billion to keep the USPS afloat.
  • Three Democratic senators have revealed legislation to send Americans at least $2,000 a month until the coronavirus crisis subsides, called the Monthly Economic Crisis Support Act.
  • White House advisors are worried that the federal government is spending too much to assist the nation through the pandemic. WaPo reports that some officials are considering allowing Americans to get cash immediately in exchange for curbing their Social Security benefits.
  • Trump said he won't support another round of coronavirus stimulus legislation unless it includes a payroll tax cut. "I want to see a payroll tax cut on both sides, a very strong one, because that’s going to really put people to work...And I told Steve just today, we’re not doing anything unless we get a payroll tax cut. That is so important to the success of our country," (video). Payroll taxes are withheld from workers’ wages and are used to fund government programs, such as Social Security and Medicare.

Exposed to virus

The Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on Tuesday with the nation’s top officials in charge of that coronavirus response: Dr. Anthony Fauci (NIH), Dr. Brett Girior (HHS), Dr. Robert Redfield (CDC), and Dr. Stephen Hahn (FDA). Notably, all four plus the committee’s chairman, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), will appear remotely after being exposed to the coronavirus.
In other words, a hearing on how to safely reopen the economy is too unsafe for in-person attendance. If the White House, with its ability to test everyone daily and conduct contact tracing, is experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks, it's absurd to expect Americans to return to work when we don't have 1/100th of the testing capacity. More here.

House Intelligence Cmte transcripts

The House Intelligence Committee released thousands of pages of transcripts of over 50 closed door interviews conducted in 2017 and 2018 related to the Russia investigation. The interviews include Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Corey Lewandowski, Hope Hicks, Brad Parscale, and Carter Page, as well as Obama-era officials James Clapper, Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes, Andrew McCabe, and Loretta Lynch.
Overall, there is nothing particularly ground-breaking in the transcripts. The main story about the release is the months-long battle between Chairman Adam Schiff and the Trump administration, which delayed the publication significantly. The White House insisted that it be able to review the transcripts first, but Schiff refused. Rightwing media, including Trump himself, inaccurately portrayed the delay as Schiff’s fault, saying he was trying to hide something.
A couple of nuggets:
  • Hope Hicks told lawmakers that senior Trump-world figures worried Paul Manafort was stealing money from the Trump campaign. She also refused to answer questions about Trump and associates asking her to lie, giving the impression that, yes, he did.
  • In his House Intel interview, Michael Cohen repeatedly tripped over the date he terminated the Trump Tower Moscow effort. "Sorry. I don't know what it is with me and dates today." He later pleaded guilty to lying about that date.
  • Kushner admitted to proposing a Flynn set up a back-channel of communications with then-Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak, but claimed the idea was ultimately turned down by Kislyak. “There's nothing wrong with giving an idea that is wrong, because, you know, if you do something that's wrong, then that's something that you have to look at,” Kushner told the committee in his own defense.

Biden probe

The chairmen of the Senate Homeland Security and Senate Finance Committee, Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA), are continuing to pursue their investigation into Joe and Hunter Biden. Finance Cmte Ranking Member Ron Wyden (D-OR) accuses the State Department of complying only with Republican requests for documents related to the probe, saying that he department has provided Senate Republicans with more than 4,000 pages of records - including 1,000 pages in the midst of the pandemic.
“It is wholly inappropriate for the State Department to dedicate its limited resources to voluntarily complying with Republican requests without also making a good faith effort to respond to Democratic requests,” Wyden wrote in the letter.
On April 30, Johnson and Grassley requested additional documents from the State Dept.
Obama’s take
Late last year, Johnson and Grassley requested Obama-era information from the National Archives and Records Administration regarding Ukraine and the Bidens. Obama’s office responded by warning that the GOP-led panel is an effort “to give credence to a Russian disinformation campaign.” The letter continues, “It arises out of efforts by some, actively supported by Russia, to shift the blame for Russian interference in the 2016 election to Ukraine.”
Obama’s office ultimately agreed to release the records “in the interest of countering the misinformation campaign underlying this request.”

Fallout from Flynn

During an interview following the DOJ’s decision to drop all charges against Michael Flynn, Attorney General Bill Barr further degraded the reputation of the department that’s supposed to dispense justice in the nation:
Reporter Catherine Herridge: How will history look back on your decision to drop charges against Flynn?
Barr: “Well, history is written by the winners. So it largely depends on who’s writing the history.” (video)
In other words, if Trump wins re-election, if Republicans control the government, he will be hailed as a hero for dropping the case. As Sen. Christ Murphy (D-CT), said: “My god. The entire idea of the rule of law - that thing the Attorney General is supposed to be in charge of upholding - is predicated on the outcome of elections NOT mattering when it comes to the operation of the legal system.”

Obama in crosshairs

On Friday, audio of Obama speaking during a private web chat conversation with members of the Obama Alumni Association was published by Yahoo News’ Michael Isikoff. Obama told members that dropping charges against Flynn jeopardizes the “rule of law.”
“The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn...And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk. And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places.”
Obama also slammed Trump’s response to the pandemic as an “absolute chaotic disaster.” Of course, this enraged Trump, who took to Twitter on Mother’s Day to tweet and retweet catch-phrase criticisms like “OBAMAGATE,” which refers to conspiracy theories that Obama and his staff faked charges against Flynn and, ultimately, that the entire Russia investigation is a hoax.
Even before audio of Obama surfaced, Trump was on this track, telling Fox News:
"What you've seen so far is incredible, especially as it relates to President Obama, because if anyone thinks that he and sleepy Joe Biden didn't know what was going on, they have another thing coming." (video)

Putin must be happy

On the same day that the DOJ dropped its case against Flynn, Trump held another phone call with Vladimir Putin, in which he called the Russia investigation a “hoax:”
"The Russia hoax made it very hard for Russia and the United States to deal with each other...and we discussed that. I said, 'You know, it's a very appropriate time, because things are falling out now and coming in line showing what a hoax this whole investigation was, it was a total disgrace, and I wouldn't be surprised if you see a lot of things happen over the next number of weeks.’ This is just one piece of a very dishonest puzzle,” Trump told reporters after the call. (video)

Further reading

Barr ally Tim Shea extensively cited testimony from former DOJ official Mary McCord in the filing asking to drop the Flynn case. McCord published an op-ed in NYT disavowing essentially everything that Barr and Shea claimed about her testimony, point by point.
NEW: Jonathan Kravis, a prosecutor on the Roger Stone case who quit his job over AG Barr’s interference, speaks out for the first time: "I am convinced that the department’s conduct in the Stone and Flynn cases will do lasting damage to the institution... [Barr’s decision] t sends an unmistakable message to prosecutors and agents — if the president demands, we will throw you under the bus."

Court cases

  • Tomorrow, May 12, the Supreme Court will live stream arguments in three cases about Trump’s finances. Both the House and Trump’s lawyers argued in filings last week that the court has the ability to rule on issues of the case, urging the justices not to punt the dispute back to lower courts.
  • Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has rejected (doc) a request for an investigation into the retirement of an appeals court judge that created a coveted vacancy for President Trump to fill months before the 2020 election. D.C. Circuit Chief Judge Sri Srinivasan requested the probe after it was reported that Sen. McConnell was urging veteran conservative judges to retire this year so that Trump could replace them with ideological allies before the election.
  • As expected, the Supreme Court put a temporary hold on the release of Mueller grand jury materials to the House while it decides whether to issue a longer stay and take the case. Both the district court and appeals court have ruled against the Justice Department.
  • Last week, the Supreme Court unanimously threw out fraud convictions on Thursday against two New Jersey officials involved in the "Bridgegate" political scandal, the George Washington Bridge traffic jam that rocked the administration of then-Gov. Chris Christie… The ruling is the latest example of the court narrowing the type of conduct by public officials that can be considered fraud under federal law.
    • Further reading: “The Supreme Court Says Sorry, It Just Can’t Help With Political Corruption,” The Atlantic
  • The Supreme Court heard arguments in a case concerning the Affordable Care Act's requirement that employer-provided health insurance plans cover birth control as a preventive service and pits supporters of the Obamacare provision against those who say it violates their religious and moral beliefs. Justice Ginsberg repeatedly pressed on the notion that women would lose their coverage even if they didn't share the employers' religious beliefs.
    • Further reading: “The Supreme Court Can Only See Certain People’s Suffering,” Slate
  • Don’t miss this amazing Reuters piece on qualified immunity, a legal defense enabled by the Supreme Court that allows cops to evade accountability in excessive force cases: “For cops who kill, special Supreme Court protection. The U.S. high court’s continual refinement of an obscure legal doctrine has made it harder to hold police accountable when accused of using excessive force.”

Trump properties

  • Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club is in the midst of a local legal battle over the president’s desire to have a private dock at the Palm Beach club.
    • More details: His neighbors and preservationists, who have pushed back on the plan, recently came upon new legal grounds to deny the dock: Trump agreed in writing years ago to change the use of the Mar-a-Lago property from a single-family residence to a private club owned by a corporation he controls. However, the president recently changed his official domicile from Manhattan to Mar-a-Lago, registering to vote in Florida using the club’s address. The property is taxed as a private club — not as a residence: “It’s one or the other — it’s a club or it’s your home.”
  • CREW: In February, President Trump traveled to the West Coast for a multi-day trip through four states. But instead of staying locally, President Trump traveled each evening to the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas, likely costing taxpayers an extra million dollars. When he was asked about the wasteful and costly travel, President Trump blamed the Secret Service. Earlier this week, CREW received an email from the Department of Homeland Security saying no such records exist.
  • The House Oversight Committee is investigating the Trump Organization’s recent request for financial benefits from domestic and foreign government entities during the wake of the coronavirus crisis.
  • On Sunday, Trump used his official Twitter account to promote his Los Angeles golf course reopening.

Trump campaign

  • The Trump campaign has not returned an illegal donation it received from a foreign national in 2019, records from the FEC show. A PAC, Trump Victory, gave the foreign donor the money back, but the donation is still in the Trump campaign coffers: “Trump Victory appears to have covered a refund to the Trump campaign's only known foreign donor on behalf of the campaign in a possible attempt to shield it from allegations of wrongdoing — while at the same time leaving it in possession of the illicit funds.”
  • Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale has already collected $38.9 million through his companies from Trump’s various reelection committees between January 2017 and the end of March
  • Trump’s political team has begun discussions about organizing a high-dollar, in-person fundraiser next month, as well as preliminary planning about staging rallies and what sort of screenings might be necessary.
  • An investor group aligned with Don Jr. is about to acquire a major stake in One America News Network (OANN), which pushes conspiracy theories and unabashed pro-Trump content.

Immigration news

  • “U.S. suspends protections for migrant kids at border, expelling hundreds amid pandemic,” CBS
  • President Trump is once more pushing to have his border wall painted black, a design change that is projected to add at least $500 million in costs… military commanders and border officials believed as recently as last fall that they had finally talked him out of it… Trump has not let go of the idea, insisting that the dark color will enhance its forbidding appearance and leave the steel too hot to touch during summer months.
    • Cost estimates range from $1.2 million per mile to apply two coats of acrylic paint, all the way up to $6.8M per mile for fancy "powder coating" used on automobiles and appliances.
    • Keep in mind that Congress still hasn’t appropriated any money for wall construction, so this amounts to an additional half-billion dollars Trump will “steal” from other federal programs under his emergency powers.
  • The Trump administration is suing an orphanage in South Texas in order to exercise its eminent domain powers and obtain temporary access to the property to plan for construction along the border with Mexico.
    • Kushner expressed frustration at the pace of land acquisition in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas, where the Trump administration is preparing to seize hundreds of parcels of private land from owners who have refused to sell.

    • Fact check: The False Narrative of Vote-by-Mail Fraud, Brennan Center
    • “...Democrats and Republicans benefit about the same amount [from mail-in voting]... Nevertheless, many Republicans, who are overwhelmingly white, are convinced that the bigger the electorate, the more it will resemble an increasingly diverse electorate — and therefore disadvantage them.”
  • The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe has rejected an ultimatum by South Dakota's governor to remove [coronavirus] checkpoints on state highways within tribal reservations or risk legal action.

Does anyone know what the cast for sands of myth are? Or know about a full list of actors for Paladins?
I've been looking through imbd's cast list for paladins but it's not up to date.
I really enjoy the voice acting in sands of myth. I believe Michael McElhatton (Roose Bolton, GoT) is the VA for tiberius, and I wanna see if it's true.
