Interesting thread on Breitbart and cocaine by Boing Boing's Xeni Jardin

Last edited Fri Dec 20, 2019, 03:23 PM - Edit history (1)

Me and my LA blogger pals used to hang with Andrew Breitbart, or rather, he used to like to come out of his bunker now and then to hang with us. This wasnít war until they decided to make it war. I believe America mightíve been very different if he hadnít been so into

(gif of a razorblade, rolled up dollar bill and a Christmas tree made out of cocaine)

Itís kind of interesting that this particular kind of addiction and the damage it does to the heart is something he has in common withÖ others

I remember when things got dark he started touching women aggressively. Shoving a prominent female TV news anchor in front of an elevator one time if I remember correctly. Breitbartís heart. The cocaine didnít help but it was long rotten.

So many of these men are very sick in this way. Itís important to talk about it.

Unlike alcohol, this is an addiction where the supply factor gets very sensitive very quickly if you have a dependence. Picking up a bottle of vodka isnít expensive. But a more costly addiction can cause a man in power to do all sorts of things.

I was never a cocaine addict but I understand if you canít get access to the real thing, Adderall helps. Might be something to keep in mind

Even at its most lucrative in the 2000s, being a blogger was not a lifestyle that could sustain this sort of overhead. No. These temptations require the addict to make devilís bargains beyond that world.

Now there are all sorts of reasons a weak amoral man or woman might want to get in bed with a lot of money. In one country they call that ďkompromat.Ē Donít get it twisted the word doesnít mean peepee tape. It means the leverage by which an individual or system can be corrupted

I want you to put a pin in what Iím about to say. When the financial crash happened in 2008, all of us Internet publishers lost our damn minds. And that is exactly when Russia moved in with money. Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yuri MilnerÖ

Donít forget it.
Youíll need it.

Hey itís not ďnarcingĒ if heís dead.

Hey you know who else was really really really into stimulants. Him and his whole army. Look it up. Meth and cocaine, in their modern roots, have been the nazi, fascist, and neofascist drug of choice. White Powder, White Power.

Ask me how I know.

(Life experience. Thatís how.)

Kremlin Cash Behind Billionaireís Twitter and Facebook Investments

In the fall of 2010, the Russian billionaire investor Yuri Milner took the stage for a Q. and A. at a technology conference in San Francisco. Mr. Milner, whose holdings have included major stakes in Facebook and Twitter, is known for expounding on everything from the future of social media to the frontiers of space travel. But when someone asked a question that had swirled around his Silicon Valley ascent ó Who were his investors? ó he did not answer, turning repeatedly to the moderator with a look of incomprehension.

Now, leaked documents examined by The New York Times offer a partial answer: Behind Mr. Milnerís investments in Facebook and Twitter were hundreds of millions of dollars from the Kremlin.

Obscured by a maze of offshore shell companies, the Twitter investment was backed by VTB, a Russian state-controlled bank often used for politically strategic deals. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/05/world/yuri-milner-facebook-twitter-russia.html

1. Andrew Breitbart was a cokehead?

Say it ain't so!

I knew it when I saw him yelling "STOP RAPING PEOPLE!" at some occupy Wall Street protestors.

3. Including Trump. Noel Casler who worked on Celebrity Apprentice and broke his NDA

said the makeup artists used to complain about the little scar on the side of Trump's nose because makeup wouldn't stick to it. It's where the doctors had to go in and repair the hole in Trump's septum caused by coke. He used to openly snort Adderall on the set because he said it helped him "focus".
