  2. important work going on in this channel many many need to not hear these pieces but understand what is bring said in these pieces.
    They will not win regardless of their depravity but they will not stop. The reckoning is upon us, some times it feels very lonely to understand what I do, bleak, terrifying at the senselessness of these cretins to stupid to look at themselves.
    As they cast us all into the abyss for their privilege, their wealth, their power and their prestige.
    For that we have to die including them they are so fucking stupid.

  3. Government accuses civilian of self aggrandizement.

    Oh, the irony.

    Funny how a president who starts every (mid)sentence with the word "Look…" obviously doesn't want anybody to actually look.
