Police in Minneapolis say a man known as "Umbrella Man", seen damaging property in the city during the Black Lives Matter protests, has links to white supremacy groups.

People took to the city's streets following the death there in May of George Floyd, an unarmed black man.

Police say Umbrella Man helped turn the largely peaceful protests violent.

Footage of the man wearing a mask and carrying an umbrella while smashing shop windows went viral online.

In the video, taken on 27 May, Umbrella Man can be seen breaking the windows with a hammer as people approach him trying to get him to stop. He then walks away from the scene.

2. Amazing what belief can do.

It’s why the race to be the first to lie. It makes it harder for the truth to take hold.

Here’s missing context needed for this story and America’s press corpse.

Thus sprach Rupertscheisskopf.

Fox pops up on America’s Google feed and the tv screen.

And that part of the People believe what they think they know they’ve learned, the news.



With Ghislaine, Jeffrey Epstein’s accomplice or handler. The media mogul families go way back. Ask Bill Barr.

Maxwell and Murdoch. Rivals like. Never in context.

4. He certainly holds a special place for Capitalism's Invisible Army...

Young Bill Barr wanted to head CIA from at least high school:



Barr told a guidance counselor he wanted to head the CIA.

From The New Yorker:

...When Barr was an undergraduate, at Columbia, his classmates marched against the war in Vietnam. Barr wanted instead to buttress American power. He had told a guidance counsellor that he hoped one day to lead the C.I.A., and, during breaks from school, he spent two summers as an intern there. In 1973, he finished a master’s degree in Government and Chinese Studies and returned to the C.I.A. as an intelligence analyst. At the time, a Senate investigation—known as the Church Committee—was uncovering decades of abuses at the C.I.A., and laws were being passed to curtail them. Barr later recalled the effort as a kind of assault, delivering “body blows” to the agency....

Why this really matters:



The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government

Joseph Palermo
L.A. Progressive, Jan. 12, 2016

In The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government, David Talbot, the journalist who founded Salon.com in 1995 and wrote a great book on the lives of John and Robert Kennedy, Brothers (2007), has produced another page-turner that unearths mountains of new evidence about the seamier side of the rise of the United States’ Cold War national security state.

Talbot has achieved something rare in our scholarly discourse these days on the origins of the Central Intelligence Agency and the men who were responsible for shaping the Cold War ethos that for decades dominated American foreign policy in the 20th Century. By presenting the contours of Allen Dulles’s life and his everlasting imprint on the nature of the CIA in a cogent and highly readable way, Talbot offers us a new and sophisticated analysis of America’s secret Cold War history.

The Devil’s Chessboard is quite simply the best single volume I’ve come across that details the morally bankrupt and cynical rise of an activist intelligence apparatus in this country that was not only capable of intervening clandestinely in the internal affairs of other nations but domestically too.

Talbot’s exhaustive research, lively prose, strong moral conviction, and the ability to convey history’s relevance to our contemporary politics make The Devil’s Chessboard an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the institutional transformation that took place in this country at a time when rabid anti-communism dominated the thinking of foreign policy elites.

CONTINUES...

It may be Barr doesn’t really work for Trump.
