Using a police K-9 to maul an unarmed person inside their car at a checkpoint isn't defensive, isn't a reaction to an observation perceived as potentially threatening, it's just plain sadistic. Wilmington, NC, long-known within the political-not-justice or public protection-oriented culture of the institutionally-corrupt Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for having a deep, long-standing “culture of corruption,” shared interests highly valued and actively protected by the FBI, US Department of Justice (USDOJ) and US Attorney’s Office. Thus, despite jurisdiction and claims to a mission including an enumerated interest in ensuring and enforcing laws and sacred rights including investigating and prosecuting public corruption, theft, fraud and abuses of public resources and governance by both public and private institutions & officials, protection of Constitutional, Civil and human rights, legal protections & process rights AND judicial system integrity, law enforcement oversight and prosecutions for unmitigated corruption, criminal practices so extreme, abusive and offensive to individual rights AND permitted & rewarded by local and State governments that provided, and only provided, extreme public pressure to act builds to a boiling point, in which case the aforementioned Federal agencies might reluctantly urge local leaders to placate their citizens, through gentle written non-binding agreements and nudging to alter public perceptions, a far cry from the statements and claims of the FBI, DOJ and Federal officials involving investigation, and prosecutions , of criminal misconduct by law enforcement officers as well as related criminal misconduct by prosecutors (including District Attorneys) and judicial officials acting “Under Color of Law,” the latter also rarely, reluctantly, if ever, monitored, investigated or prosecuted according to the statements of the Federal DOJ, FBI or affiliated agencies, no matter how egregious, horrific, routine and extreme the violations of even basic rights (Life, Liberty, Equal Protections under the law, Due Process, rules concerning evidence, procedures).
Even near-sacred American ideals of Justice like the lives of innocent persons and families, communities, completely ignored by sadistic, corrupt, rapists and murderers in uniform, rewarded for their brutality and dishonesty, promoted & protected by brass and peers without exception, epidemic in law enforcement culture from coast-to-coast, along with similarly criminal misconduct and corruption, dishonesty and gang-like silence if not affirmation and participation, mockery and concealment of the crimes and violations of innocent victims inside the Courthouse as on the streets, by Court officers and corrupt DAs including Wilmington’s Ben David, his twin, Jon, for faux changes of venue, and judges including those with known discriminatory behaviors, corrupt “side hustles” or even known involvement in child sexual abuse, the latter occurring in Wilmington with DA David refusing to even bring charges or pursue justice for a six year old girl molested by the husband of a sitting judge and a former Representative in the N.C. General Assembly.
Whether using a Police K-9 as a sadistic weapon against an unarmed, surrendering individual at a checkpoint designed with officer safety in mind, shooting an unarmed, surrendering suspect 27 TIMES or a boy executed through a window for holding a PlayStation controller during a SWAT warrant service to apprehend a privileged college student, then blasting his dog for bentertainment. The murder of a skinny non-violent alcoholic in County Jail with no plausible explanation. Executing a slimeball ex-Sheriff in his boxer shorts through torture-by-Tazing until his heart exploded.
Similarly, placing multiple loaded AR-15s and shotguns to the head of an elected official and the elected representative’s golden retriever, targeting cars with that official’s bumper sticker, and four years of death threats, terrorism, kidnapping, civil and human rights violations, unlawful theft of property, violations of privacy, and the most basic rights and protections enshrined in the Laws, including and largely pursued in order to prevent a duly elected official from carrying out their sworn duties and serve their constituents, deliberate public deception to harm and undermine the hated anti-corruption, principled rather than profiteering loner in local political decision-making, harassment to obstruct, delay and seek any cause whatsoever to detain and delay the necessary movements of an official in carrying out their duties, and engaging in a deliberate campaign involving Mr. David’s active direction and participation in commission of the crimes and his own personal and staff-delegated criminal prosecutorial misconduct and additional criminal defecation on Justice, Liberty and human decency.
These are not isolated incidents rather a sample plate of the hundreds if not thousands of sadistic, criminal acts against primarily non-threatening, mostly law-abiding, non-violent and unarmed persons or a vulnerable, inebriated, unconscious, homeless or mentally ill easy victim for boxing practice or habitual sexual predation of those vulnerable to consequence-free exploitation and brutalization by bullies who get-off on violence and know that in these and EVERY SINGLE incident of criminal misconduct and rape, murder, terrorism, dehumanization, exploitation, and too many incidents by far too many uniformed thugs engaged in felonious habitual abuse by law enforcement officers (LEOs), assisted by their “no whistleblowers” peers and praise of the Sheriff and brass in New Hanover County, NC.
District Attorney Ben David, Wilmington Police Chief Evangelous, who relayed one incident involving the shooting death of an unarmed black man on PCP and rumors of violent protests, the desire of his cops to use live military anti-personnel grenades against civilians. Fortunately, the victim’s mother called for peace and calm and no further casualties or escalation occurred.
Along with the Sheriff, DA David and their pals in the City and County governments, FBI Wilmington Bureau, the US Attorney for the District, or now Gov. Roy Cooper’s NC State Bureau of Investigation, corrupt, incompetent and presumably as with AG Josh Stein close friends with Benjamin David and the corrupt powers long-entrenched (often going back to 1898, and the only violent Coup D’-Etat on American soil in U.S. history when the blood of freed, talented Negroes and “carpetbagging Yankee” Republicans turned the Cape Fear River red and many others were forced to flee forever or be subjected to lynching). Some habits die hard. That habit is still practiced. Probably rarely, but really, and with the mockery of the public and protection of the US DOJ, Civil Rights Division, FBI, SBI and post-ethics media fiction writers.
Presumably, those threats are rare. Accountability for criminal misconduct under DA David and his Assistant DA’s is even rarer. In none of these or any other incidents, not one, did David pursue justice through even his own corrupt, choreographed, no justice Courthouse. That’s right, NOT ONCE, NEVER, in these and too many equally if not more sadistic and cold-blooded, murderous, life-ruining, family-destroying, anti-American and anti-community and inhumane LEO crimes that would appall any Judeo-Christian community or person with a civilized related value system. Sadly, these public attributes are severely lacking in the larger community and completely non-existent in political and law enforcement circles.
President Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder and his swamp rat legion of the self-serving who continue to infest the Bureau and Federal government agencies or at least the FBI and US DOJ were perfectly fine with ANY and ALL criminal misconduct, even aiding and colluding in many crimes and injustices, including assisting, though not to the extent sought by Mr. David through clearly dishonest and evil attempts to elevate his unlawful and dishonorable perversion of Justice and disdain for the Rule of Law, human and civil rights, the US Constitution and the ideals of American justice and jurisprudence, though Federal officials absolutely aided and colluded in criminal acts including murder, rapes, cover-ups of LEO crimes, torture, false imprisonment, evidence tampering, even the undermining of democracy itself by acts of terrorism & abuse, torture, violent physical attacks, obstruction & attempted intimidation and bribery to prevent an elected official from representing the public thus depriving The People of their representative in THEIR government.
I will never be able to walk into a police station again without bringing witnesses even to report a crime committed against me.
I suspect that rational evidence-based distrust and knowledge of the undeniable, though oft-excused, epidemic institutional and cultural corruption that certainly is more systemic and beyond internal reform, than some rare “bad apple” exception or “Criminal profiling” or “racial profiling,” as the ages (young black children, old white grandmas, etc…etc..), races, genders, cultures, and other “identifiers” demonstrates, though the primary factor for being victimized by criminal cops is unquestionably economic and not racial, we all know black and brown folks are targeted and victimized at greater rates per capita than other demographics, though most unarmed victims of police shootings are Caucasians. Perps are LEOs of all shapes and stripes, and I can tell you in four years the three white and one black Commissioner I served beside mentioned the word “Justice” zero times, but real estate deals hundreds of times, the latter dominated the concerns of those elected officials, business opportunities for themselves and their business associates.
In Cities like, hypothetically, Denver, the African-American Mayor and his mentor, current Senate candidate, former Governor, and Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper sold seats on the “Citizen Oversight Board” purposed to add some oversight to excessive law enforcement brutality and criminal misconduct.
In fifteen years, that Board with its seat-purchasers, along with the complicit role of the ACLU and NAACP in furthering rather than mitigating violence, murders and brutality against innocent civilians and suspected criminals, much like the ACLU of NC and NAACP in NC supported and NEVER opposed these excessive, escalatory violence and murder permitting Standard Operating Procedures, talent acquisition and training, and the various other underlying causes of law enforcement criminality that is far more violent, dangerous and routine than the incarcerated, who are less sadistic and violent than law enforcement –
--most of the incarcerated are non-violent, salvageable but opportunity and father-less black kids suffering the consequences of “KKK Joe” Biden’s proudest and only accomplishment, besides fighting with the Klan to kill Civil Rights legislation, his “Biden Crime Bill” that greatly escalated mass incarceration of black youths, many young fathers, the ridiculous 100X punishment for their crack while Biden’s daughter is a well-known cocaine-fiend in that crime family, and the work of corrupt DAs like Ben David, Kamala Harris and the bastard in Texas who lied for and protected the fat pig who murdered Sandra Bland (though no white folks probably have a clue who Sandra is or what I’m referencing).
Any, well, most any, decent, empathetic person harassed, beaten, tortured, defamed through culturally-encouraged dishonesty and public deceit, in a field with zero-transparency, no integrity and the standard practice of abuse, murder followed by lies and victim smearing after a gang-beating, tazering, stomping, purely malicious brutalization, borne from the injustice and inhumanity of those who are drawn to the underpaid, under-trained, overly-tasked, low-intelligence and lower virtue-oriented outmoded and major reform requiring job tormented and permanently harmed by police brutality and the broken criminal justice system, I have been devoted ever since to sharing my story (and sounding absolutely crazy, certifiable, admittedly…criminal justice reform is pretty much the only thing I’ve ever used Twitter for and primarily all I post about on FB…like a crazy…albeit it not anti-police or a “de-funder” or violent radical) in the hope that nobody else will ever experience what I experienced, having to learn how to talk again, literally, from the severity of the damage and head trauma w/permanent neurological damage from being beat down and tortured despite committing no crime, breaking no law, that any jury would convict any person of – suffering a seizure on the shoulder of a residential street…after years of vicious, expensive taxpayer-funded attacks and torment way beyond mere felonies. I am fairly certain the attacks of Ben David, Ted Davis, Woody White, Wanda Copley, Tom “ABC Store” Wolfe and the corrupt Wilmington government and community of malice & greed and fake Christians.

How long will these abuses and the crimes of those responsible, esp. Ted Davis, Sandra Criner, Wanda Copley, Woody White, Jonathan Barfield, Chris Coudriet, Dennis Ihnat, Andre Mallette, Bruce Shell and the most sadistic, criminal, evil thug in a County run by criminals, Ben David and his friends and criminal accomplices Roy Cooper, Josh Stein and Eric Holder, and their totally dishonest, narcissistic, story inventors with the morals of Joesph Goebbels who comprise the unethical media in Wilmington, with their total lack of empathy, honesty or integrity, and make up stories rather than reporting on say, all the secret lawsuits for County and City law enforcement brutality secretly settled every month and of interest to nobody except me in recent decades or real reform would’ve occurred already in New Hanover County. There would be more fathers in the community and less tears, instead of a cycle with outcomes few are even trying to break in any serious way. Esp. Rev. Barfield, who has long run training and discipline in the Sheriff’s Office and used eager, unethical criminals like Coudriet and Copley and Ihnat to enrich himself and say “F” everyone else in those closed-door meetings before the choreographed, scripted public meetings.

If I wasn’t in the Jail, in the “hole” in Central Prison or crazy house learning how to talk again when these sick acts of revenge were carried out in typical criminal gang fashion, I would’ve spoken up at least. I can promise you that. Empty words now that offer no comfort, but these stories and the photos break my heart and I wish I could assuage the grief and longing. I’m trying to advocate for reforms nationally but after losing my family, house, career, reputation, name and future amid the lies and mockery of Wilmington’s Finest, without any other voices or names to support my efforts I’m not exactly employing an effective strategy to reform systemic corruption and injustice.
To that end, if anyone ever reads this far into this manifesto (my most egregious and violent crime, excessively long emails and written documents).
In Wilmington, nationally, under elected officials of all complexions and genders, police brutality and an utterly corrupt, broken criminal justice system have been tolerated, praised, for corruption that has gone on too long, destroyed too many lives and families, and is so common and accepted in Southeastern North Carolina under District Attorney Ben David and former NC Attorney General Roy Cooper, corrupt, sadistic, and criminal - habitually, expensively (for taxpayers), sadly (for the children, parents, wives, husbands, brothers, sisters, communities) for the loved ones left grieving by District Attorney Ben David, Gov. Cooper, this corrupt Attorney General and friend, sadistic partner and criminally engaged co-conspirator The North Carolina Department of Justice and Attorney General Josh Stein work to protect people. (Learn more, file a complaint, or get tips at https://ncdoj.gov )
Please contact the US Dept. of Justice ASAP before corrupt prosecutor Kamala and "KKK Joe" Biden, the two leading advocates and criminal implementers of mass incarceration in black and brown communities, ruining the lives of non-violent kids who are salvageable, destroying families and communities in accomplishing their objective, without regard for life, civil rights or the Rule of Law in the process (and laughing and boasting it to this day!).
Please contact the FBI and national media and demand that Attorney General Josh Stein, Roy Cooper, Burr and other criminal actors killing and destroying lives, deliberately deceiving the public, manipulating evidence, victim smearing at taxpayer expense and using public resources, the power of government, to advance their corrupt goals (baseball stadium, etc...) and rape, beat, torture and murder for their sadistic pleasure, free from ANY accountability, transparency, with zero integrity, zero regard for the Rule of Law, human rights, civil rights, liberty, or Justice, or innocent lives are - in the case of Gov. Cooper, Stein, and others be investigated and public hearings held, by an out-of-state independent prosecutor, and that D.A. Ben David and local officials thus engaged in New Hanover County be placed on unpaid leave pending review of evidence provided to the US Dept. of Justice, FBI, US Attorneys Office and Federal officials years ago when the body count was much lower and many loved decent people were still with us and had not yet been executed in cold-blood by a brutal, criminal sadistic D.A. Ben David, and the incestuous New Hanover Courthouse crew of cronies, even protected pedophiles literally in bed with Ben David, lawyer pols inc. Ted Davis, Woody White and other and judicial abusers (Criner et al...)
The terror, threats and violence from law enforcement, directed by District attorney Ben David, documented for the FBI, which was in collusion and protecting D.A. Ben David along with his pal, then North Carolina AG, now Gov. Roy Cooper, would escalate to more pronounced violence, torture and worse as well as death threats and false imprisonment to keep me, an elected official, from carrying out my duties to represent the voters who put me in office in the first place.
For the past ten years I've been a relentless champion for Justice and police reform and corrections reform and criminal justice reform, while Gov. Cooper, N.C. Attorney General Stein and the NC Dept. of Justice, and their friend and corrupt, criminal prosecutor "Under Color Law" who has as I predicted in 2010 continually increased the extreme brutality and ever-increasing body count and indiscriminate selection of victims, including my friend and domestic violence victim Tressa Angermeier, who DA Ben David personally acted against, a victim of real not concocted domestic violence, beautiful, successful, intelligent, educated, and dead as a direct result of District Attorney Ben David, and Assistant D.A. Lillian Salcines-Bright, who deliberately acted against and significantly harmed an unquestioned victim of severe domestic violence, in order to protect the doctor and local opiate supplier to the political and law enforcement community in Wilmington, NC, eventually driving a petite, undisputed victim of a violent attack, to her death instead of representing the Rule of Law or the victim's rights and rehabilitation.
N.C. Attorney General Cooper, this current A.G. and Cooper Crony Josh Stein, and their friend and protégé Benjamin David didn't care about Tressa, directly violated numerous laws, in violation of their legal obligations or ethical or moral decency, a Federal crime including and not limited to prosecutorial misconduct "Under Color of Law," torture, kidnapping, death threats, violations of Due Process, numerous legal procedures and rights, directing criminal actions through third-parties and then ensuring that serious felonious and terroristic sadism and violence to prevent a duly elected official from carrying out their DUTY to represent the People, the citizens of New Hanover County, who elected me (and others) to represent them, a DUTY I took deadly serious and refused to stray from...
Even when corrupt, violent, Ben David and his political cronies began using law enforcement to threaten my life, my dog's life, with AR-15s and shotguns, safeties off, inches from my face and my golden retriever's head, and numerous equally sadistic and violent as well as extensive abuses of power and taxpayer resources pursued constantly for four years by County Manager Chris Coudriet, County Attorney Wanda Copley, the entire County Public Relations, law enforcement, various Agencies and Departments, to continuously harass, torment, abuse, rob, threaten, assault, defraud, slander and manipulate the full power of a corrupt, large Government apparatus to attack and destroy me personally, and illegally through violence and criminal actions documented and undeniable, prevent me from performing my duties dozens of times every month for years, sometimes violently and sometimes through less violent but equally criminal and destructive actions using sadistic, evil, criminal law enforcement thugs to carry out countless crimes from death threats to property crimes easily initiated since targeting, stalking, harassment, and unlawful detentions - much of these crimes have been documented, recordings and hundreds of witnesses and other admissible and indisputable evidence presented to the NC Dept. of Justice re: D.A. Ben David's and other corrupt officials' law enforcement torture squads. the kids in jail who are salvageable either...if black lives matter, get those kids out of jail and they can be saved. They are not violent or dangerous, yet, but nice kids from hard environments and broken homes stuck the cycle of mass incarceration....

Have you ever been watching a football game, in your own home, on a Sunday night, in your pajamas, heard a knock at the door opened it to find AR-15s, shotguns pointed at your face? You don't forget something like that.
https://www.starnewsonline.com/…/NC/20030…/news/605079251/ “Gary wouldn’t hurt a soul on this earth,” Mr. Scarbro said. “He was the most passive man on earth.” While the neuropathology consultation uses the word “officer,” the autopsy summary refers to “officers.” The autopsy performed Jan. 17 by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill showed Mr. Rummer died of blunt force head trauma. The report also notes a broken vertebra in Mr. Rummer’s neck.
http://jimfishertruecrime.blogspot.com/2012/05/killing-of-peyton-strickland.html
Peyton Strickland. Say his name! 18 years old. College student. Executed inside his home by a New Hanover County Deputy firing video game style into the home killing the young "punk" who was holding a semi-automatic PLAYSTATION CONTROLLER. Then they executed his dog for fun.
That's why I was willing to get pummeled and tasered without moving my hands from straight at my sides because if you so much as flinch or try to shield your face, law enforcement will shoot you dead without remorse, without a pang of conscience or humanity. And they made it clear under the barrel of numerous AR-15s and shotguns that they would gladly kill me and were planning on it, and they meant it. They threatened to shoot my golden retriever too.
I do not support "Defunding. I do support Liberty and Justice and the human rights of all my countrymen...and anyone who experiences anything like what I was subjected too, if they live, with permanent scars and PTSD and an uncompromising mission to try to raise awareness by sharing our stories so nobody else endures the suffering caused everyday, esp. in black and brown communities but white families too, sadists rarely limit their victims...anyone vulnerable who they can abuse is .
When will enough be enough? White folks will never get it.
…Maybe George Floyd would still be alive. …Maybe Sandra Bland would still be alive. …Maybe Tamir Rice would still be alive. …Maybe Eric Garner would still be alive. …Maybe Daniel Shaver would still be alive. …Maybe Lt. Richard Black would still be alive. …Maybe Elijah McClain would still be alive. …Maybe Wendy Newton would still be alive. …Maybe Nicolette Green would still be alive. …Maybe Cory Jones would still be alive. Maybe Tevin Robinson and Brandon Smith would still be alive.https://youtu.be/tgrlMP7QBP4
https://youtu.be/a8hwgrz6zMY
Maybe my friend Tressa Angermeier a domestic violence victim perversely abused by DA Ben David and Ass. DA Lillian Salcines-Bright along with other corrupt officials in New Hanover County…would still be alive. ☹
If you want law-abiding, decent law enforcement and ethical officials...if you value ethical government:

Using a police K-9 to maul an unarmed person inside their car at a checkpoint isn't defensive, isn't a reaction to an observation perceived as potentially threatening, it's just plain sadistic. Wilmington, NC, long-known within the political-not-justice or public protection-oriented culture of the institutionally-corrupt Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for having a deep, long-standing “culture of corruption,” shared interests highly valued and actively protected by the FBI, US Department of Justice (USDOJ) and US Attorney’s Office.

Any, well, most any, decent, empathetic person harassed, beaten, tortured, defamed through culturally-encouraged dishonesty and public deceit, in a field with zero-transparency, no integrity and the standard practice of abuse, murder followed by lies and victim smearing after a gang-beating, tazering, stomping, purely malicious brutalization, borne from the injustice and inhumanity of those who are drawn to the underpaid, under-trained, overly-tasked, low-intelligence and lower virtue-oriented outmoded and major reform requiring job tormented and permanently harmed by police brutality and the broken criminal justice system, I have been devoted ever since to sharing my story (and sounding absolutely crazy, certifiable, admittedly…criminal justice reform is pretty much the only thing I’ve ever used Twitter for and primarily all I post about on FB…like a crazy…albeit it not anti-police or a “de-funder” or violent radical) in the hope that nobody else will ever experience what I experienced, having to learn how to talk again, literally, from the severity of the damage and head trauma w/permanent neurological damage from being beat down and tortured despite committing no crime, breaking no law, that any jury would convict any person of – suffering a seizure on the shoulder of a residential street…after years of vicious, expensive taxpayer-funded attacks and torment way beyond mere felonies. I am fairly certain the attacks of Ben David, Ted Davis, Woody White, Wanda Copley, Tom “ABC Store” Wolfe and the corrupt Wilmington government and community of malice & greed and fake Christians.

How long will these abuses and the crimes of those responsible, esp. Ted Davis, Sandra Criner, Wanda Copley, Woody White, Jonathan Barfield, Chris Coudriet, Dennis Ihnat, Andre Mallette, Bruce Shell and the most sadistic, criminal, evil thug in a County run by criminals, Ben David and his friends and criminal accomplices Roy Cooper, Josh Stein and Eric Holder, and their totally dishonest, narcissistic, story inventors with the morals of Joesph Goebbels who comprise the unethical media in Wilmington, with their total lack of empathy, honesty or integrity, and make up stories rather than reporting on say, all the secret lawsuits for County and City law enforcement brutality secretly settled every month and of interest to nobody except me in recent decades or real reform would’ve occurred already in New Hanover County. There would be more fathers in the community and less tears, instead of a cycle with outcomes few are even trying to break in any serious way. Esp. Rev. Barfield, who has long run training and discipline in the Sheriff’s Office and used eager, unethical criminals like Coudriet and Copley and Ihnat to enrich himself and say “F” everyone else in those closed-door meetings before the choreographed, scripted public meetings.

If I wasn’t in the Jail, in the “hole” in Central Prison or crazy house learning how to talk again when these sick acts of revenge were carried out in typical criminal gang fashion, I would’ve spoken up at least. I can promise you that. Empty words now that offer no comfort, but these stories and the photos break my heart and I wish I could assuage the grief and longing. I’m trying to advocate for reforms nationally but after losing my family, house, career, reputation, name and future amid the lies and mockery of Wilmington’s Finest, without any other voices or names to support my efforts I’m not exactly employing an effective strategy to reform systemic corruption and injustice.
To that end, if anyone ever reads this far into this manifesto (my most egregious and violent crime, excessively long emails and written documents).
In Wilmington, nationally, under elected officials of all complexions and genders, police brutality and an utterly corrupt, broken criminal justice system have been tolerated, praised, for corruption that has gone on too long, destroyed too many lives and families, and is so common and accepted in Southeastern North Carolina under District Attorney Ben David and former NC Attorney General Roy Cooper, corrupt, sadistic, and criminal - habitually, expensively (for taxpayers), sadly (for the children, parents, wives, husbands, brothers, sisters, communities) for the loved ones left grieving by District Attorney Ben David, Gov. Cooper, this corrupt Attorney General and friend, sadistic partner and criminally engaged co-conspirator The North Carolina Department of Justice and Attorney General Josh Stein work to protect people. (Learn more, file a complaint, or get tips at https://ncdoj.gov )
Please contact the US Dept. of Justice ASAP before corrupt prosecutor Kamala and "KKK Joe" Biden, the two leading advocates and criminal implementers of mass incarceration in black and brown communities, ruining the lives of non-violent kids who are salvageable, destroying families and communities in accomplishing their objective, without regard for life, civil rights or the Rule of Law in the process (and laughing and boasting it to this day!).
Please contact the FBI and national media and demand that Attorney General Josh Stein, Roy Cooper, Burr and other criminal actors killing and destroying lives, deliberately deceiving the public, manipulating evidence, victim smearing at taxpayer expense and using public resources, the power of government, to advance their corrupt goals (baseball stadium, etc...) and rape, beat, torture and murder for their sadistic pleasure, free from ANY accountability, transparency, with zero integrity, zero regard for the Rule of Law, human rights, civil rights, liberty, or Justice, or innocent lives are - in the case of Gov. Cooper, Stein, and others be investigated and public hearings held, by an out-of-state independent prosecutor, and that D.A. Ben David and local officials thus engaged in New Hanover County be placed on unpaid leave pending review of evidence provided to the US Dept. of Justice, FBI, US Attorneys Office and Federal officials years ago when the body count was much lower and many loved decent people were still with us and had not yet been executed in cold-blood by a brutal, criminal sadistic D.A. Ben David, and the incestuous New Hanover Courthouse crew of cronies, even protected pedophiles literally in bed with Ben David, lawyer pols inc. Ted Davis, Woody White and other and judicial abusers (Criner et al...)
The terror, threats and violence from law enforcement, directed by District attorney Ben David, documented for the FBI, which was in collusion and protecting D.A. Ben David along with his pal, then North Carolina AG, now Gov. Roy Cooper, would escalate to more pronounced violence, torture and worse as well as death threats and false imprisonment to keep me, an elected official, from carrying out my duties to represent the voters who put me in office in the first place.
For the past ten years I've been a relentless champion for Justice and police reform and corrections reform and criminal justice reform, while Gov. Cooper, N.C. Attorney General Stein and the NC Dept. of Justice, and their friend and corrupt, criminal prosecutor "Under Color Law" who has as I predicted in 2010 continually increased the extreme brutality and ever-increasing body count and indiscriminate selection of victims, including my friend and domestic violence victim Tressa Angermeier, who DA Ben David personally acted against, a victim of real not concocted domestic violence, beautiful, successful, intelligent, educated, and dead as a direct result of District Attorney Ben David, and Assistant D.A. Lillian Salcines-Bright, who deliberately acted against and significantly harmed an unquestioned victim of severe domestic violence, in order to protect the doctor and local opiate supplier to the political and law enforcement community in Wilmington, NC, eventually driving a petite, undisputed victim of a violent attack, to her death instead of representing the Rule of Law or the victim's rights and rehabilitation.
N.C. Attorney General Cooper, this current A.G. and Cooper Crony Josh Stein, and their friend and protégé Benjamin David didn't care about Tressa, directly violated numerous laws, in violation of their legal obligations or ethical or moral decency, a Federal crime including and not limited to prosecutorial misconduct "Under Color of Law," torture, kidnapping, death threats, violations of Due Process, numerous legal procedures and rights, directing criminal actions through third-parties and then ensuring that serious felonious and terroristic sadism and violence to prevent a duly elected official from carrying out their DUTY to represent the People, the citizens of New Hanover County, who elected me (and others) to represent them, a DUTY I took deadly serious and refused to stray from...
Even when corrupt, violent, Ben David and his political cronies began using law enforcement to threaten my life, my dog's life, with AR-15s and shotguns, safeties off, inches from my face and my golden retriever's head, and numerous equally sadistic and violent as well as extensive abuses of power and taxpayer resources pursued constantly for four years by County Manager Chris Coudriet, County Attorney Wanda Copley, the entire County Public Relations, law enforcement, various Agencies and Departments, to continuously harass, torment, abuse, rob, threaten, assault, defraud, slander and manipulate the full power of a corrupt, large Government apparatus to attack and destroy me personally, and illegally through violence and criminal actions documented and undeniable, prevent me from performing my duties dozens of times every month for years, sometimes violently and sometimes through less violent but equally criminal and destructive actions using sadistic, evil, criminal law enforcement thugs to carry out countless crimes from death threats to property crimes easily initiated since targeting, stalking, harassment, and unlawful detentions - much of these crimes have been documented, recordings and hundreds of witnesses and other admissible and indisputable evidence presented to the NC Dept. of Justice re: D.A. Ben David's and other corrupt officials' law enforcement torture squads. the kids in jail who are salvageable either...if black lives matter, get those kids out of jail and they can be saved. They are not violent or dangerous, yet, but nice kids from hard environments and broken homes stuck the cycle of mass incarceration....

Have you ever been watching a football game, in your own home, on a Sunday night, in your pajamas, heard a knock at the door opened it to find AR-15s, shotguns pointed at your face? You don't forget something like that.
https://www.starnewsonline.com/…/NC/20030…/news/605079251/ “Gary wouldn’t hurt a soul on this earth,” Mr. Scarbro said. “He was the most passive man on earth.” While the neuropathology consultation uses the word “officer,” the autopsy summary refers to “officers.” The autopsy performed Jan. 17 by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill showed Mr. Rummer died of blunt force head trauma. The report also notes a broken vertebra in Mr. Rummer’s neck.

Peyton Strickland. Say his name! 18 years old. College student. Executed inside his home by a New Hanover County Deputy firing video game style into the home killing the young "punk" who was holding a semi-automatic PLAYSTATION CONTROLLER. Then they executed his dog for fun.
That's why I was willing to get pummeled and tasered without moving my hands from straight at my sides because if you so much as flinch or try to shield your face, law enforcement will shoot you dead without remorse, without a pang of conscience or humanity. And they made it clear under the barrel of numerous AR-15s and shotguns that they would gladly kill me and were planning on it, and they meant it. They threatened to shoot my golden retriever too.
I do not support "Defunding. I do support Liberty and Justice and the human rights of all my countrymen...and anyone who experiences anything like what I was subjected too, if they live, with permanent scars and PTSD and an uncompromising mission to try to raise awareness by sharing our stories so nobody else endures the suffering caused everyday, esp. in black and brown communities but white families too, sadists rarely limit their victims...anyone vulnerable who they can abuse is .
When will enough be enough? White folks will never get it.
…Maybe George Floyd would still be alive. …Maybe Sandra Bland would still be alive. …Maybe Tamir Rice would still be alive. …Maybe Eric Garner would still be alive. …Maybe Daniel Shaver would still be alive. …Maybe Lt. Richard Black would still be alive. …Maybe Elijah McClain would still be alive. …Maybe Wendy Newton would still be alive. …Maybe Nicolette Green would still be alive. …Maybe Cory Jones would still be alive. Maybe Tevin Robinson and Brandon Smith would still be alive.https://youtu.be/tgrlMP7QBP4

Maybe my friend Tressa Angermeier a domestic violence victim perversely abused by DA Ben David and Ass. DA Lillian Salcines-Bright along with other corrupt officials in New Hanover County…would still be alive. ☹

2020.10.24 22:25 Older_and_Wiser_Now Joe Biden ignored the pressure Hunter's presence would have on Ukrainian prosecutors, because HUNTER was the SON OF THE 2ND MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE WORLD- Detailed Timeline of Key Events in the Joe Biden - Hunter Biden - Ukraine-gate scandal

I've been literally spending the last week of my life trying to figure out how best to communicate the FACTS behind Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and the REAL Ukrainegate (Hunter joined a company called Burisima owned by a corrupt oligarch, who was under investigation for money-laundering WHEN HUNTER JOINED THE BOARD OF THE COMPANY!!!) The more research I have performed, the more disgusted I am with the deeply cynical moves of the man who is likely going to become the next leader of the free world, Joe Biden, heaven help us all.
I have focused on using "credible sources", lol, such as the NYT and wsj.com to establish FACTS, a few times I use breitbart.com and foxnews.com for commentary, but only AFTER the facts have been established elsewhere. I'm putting the word "credible" in quotes because these sources are not at all credible to me, they are heavily biased to tell a narrative that favors the status quo, but that is beyond the scope of this essay. One exception: the testimony of former prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was demonized by Joe Biden and fired from his job in order to obtain US aid -> my only source is foxnews.com because "credible" sources never let Shokin tell his side of the story.
To communicate the facts to you as simply as possible, here is the process I have followed:
1) produced a detailed timeline, complete with sources and quotes. But I was afraid of TL;DR, so I decided to publish that last.
2) produced a much simpler "overview" timeline that contains bullet points of key events, with links to sources but no quotes. It's easier to read, but more work for those who want to check sources for themselves.
3) Produced an even higher level, overview graphic image of the MOST IMPORTANT KEY EVENTS!!!
 
So, if you are a TL;DR type person ...
 
START HERE v v v v v v v
Pro Tip: START by looking at this overview graphic image of the MOST IMPORTANT KEY EVENTS!!!!
START HERE ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
 
... then you can expand your view, by looking at the Overview Timeline of Key Events in the Joe Biden - Hunter Biden - Ukraine-gate scandal, with bullet points of key events ...
(also, the overview document contains a preface that I have not reproduced here)
 
... and finally, you can continue reading THIS document, which contains the most detail of all three.
 
The TRUTH of the matter is, Joe Biden didn't lift a finger to stop Hunter Biden from serving on the board of a company whose owner was under investigation for money laundering. He ignored the pressure Hunter's presence would have on Ukrainian prosecutors who were involved in that case because Hunter was the son of perhaps the second most powerful man in the world.
Wouldn't any normal person believe that to go against Joe would incur his wrath, and that pursuing a corruption case against Hunter Biden's employer would essentially be going against Joe? Wouldn't it be a normal, human reaction for Ukrainian prosecutors to fear the power of Joe Biden, and as a result, make the case against Burisima Holdings go away?
I submit to you, in the borrowed words of James Comey,
"no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case".
In the end, the case was not pursued, imagine that! What came after simply shocks me. Joe goes on to actually LECTURE Ukrainian Parliament about the need for THEM to cleanup corruption, and demanded changes to the prosecutors office. Guess how well that speech went over?
The only applause Vice President Joseph Biden Jr. got while he addressed the Ukrainian Parliament on Tuesday was when he berated Russia. That’s not hard: Russia’s venality — the seizure of Crimea and the support for separatists in eastern Ukraine — is a strong unifying force in Ukrainian politics. By contrast, Mr. Biden’s ardent talk of the need to put an end to Ukraine’s ubiquitous corruption and the power of its oligarchs was met with stony silence.
Sadly, the credibility of Mr. Biden’s message may be undermined by the association of his son with a Ukrainian natural-gas company, Burisma Holdings, which is owned by a former government official suspected of corrupt practices ... Burisma’s owner, Mykola Zlochevsky, has been under investigation in Britain and in Ukraine. It should be plain to Hunter Biden that any connection with a Ukrainian oligarch damages his father’s efforts to help Ukraine. This is not a board he should be sitting on.
As we all know now, Biden went even further ... he threatened to CANCEL a US aid package unless - and I still cannot get over this - unless the prosecutor who might have turned a blind eye to the corruption of Hunter Biden's company GOT FIRED. Joe Biden's FAMILY profits from the investigation being called off (to the tune of about $2.5 million), and THEN Joe Biden acts like a cruel bully, a tremendously POWERFUL bully to the prosecutor? IMHO, It's like putting out a hit job on the guy who saved your child from drowning. Who does that?
I submit to you, if Joe Biden cannot see the harm caused when Hunter joined the Board of Burisima, it is because he is intentionally putting blinders on and refusing to see it. Of course, "I didn't know" is a legally acceptable defense in our judicial system. So politicians actually have an incentive to turn a blind eye, or at least pretend to do so, when their relatives engage in influence peddling to the highest bidders.
 
Note: Events described in the timeline are all prior to the "October Surprise" leak of documents. So all the nonsense about whether those docs are "information" or "disinformation" has no bearing on what is contained on this timeline.

In June, 2009, five months after Joe Biden became Vice-President, Hunter co-founded a second company, Rosemont Seneca Partners, with Christopher Heinz, Senator John Kerry’s stepson and an heir to the food-company fortune, and Devon Archer, a former Abercrombie & Fitch model who started his finance career at Citibank in Asia and who had been friends with Heinz at Yale. (Heinz and Archer already had a private-equity fund called Rosemont Capital.)
Source: breitbart.com
as both Joe Biden and John Kerry negotiated sensitive and high-stakes deals with foreign governments, Rosemont entities secured a series of exclusive deals often with those same foreign governments,” Schweizer wrote.
For a small firm with no track record, Rosemont Seneca scored high-level meetings with officials in China over the years, with each meeting coincidentally corresponding to official meetings between Vice President Biden and Chinese leaders.

December 2013

  • Event: Joe makes a vice-presidential trip to China, in an attempt to cool a dispute between China and Japan. He brought Hunter along with him on Air Force Two
Source: nytimes.com
Seeking to cool an escalating dispute between China and Japan about an air defense zone created by Beijing over contested waters, Mr. Biden was practical. He backed Japan, America’s ally, with strong words while warning China not to scramble fighter jets in the airspace, even as he tacitly conceded that Beijing would never roll back the measure.

Hunter Biden and one of his daughters flew to China from Japan aboard Air Force Two with the vice president, who was in the midst of a diplomatic mission intended to calm rising tensions in the region.
 
  • Event: Bohai Harvest RST, a $1 Billion investment fund, is founded by Chinese and American partners including Rosemont Seneca Partners
Source: "About" page for Bohai Harvest RST
Formed in the Shanghai Free Trade Zone in December 2013 as its first cross-border investment private equity firm, BHR is the cross-border investment arm of Bohai Industrial Investment Fund, itself among China’s first-ever RMB-denominated private equity funds approved by the State Council. BHR, with its unique mixed ownership, combines the resources and platforms of China’s largest financial institutions (including Bank of China, China Development Bank Capital, Harvest Fund, Postal Savings Bank of China, China Life and the National Council of Social Security Fund) and the networks and know-how of our U.S.-based investment fund and advisory firm shareholders.
What do you think BHR refers to in that last sentence when they say "the networks and know-how"? They are referring to the CONNECTIONS that their American partners have, baby. And clearly one of the most important and powerful connections in the deal was the connection that Hunter Biden had to his father, Joe Biden, who AT THE TIME was the Vice President of the United States.
Source: wsj.com
The fund—launched by Chinese asset managers Bohai Industrial Investment Fund Management Co. and Harvest Fund Management Co. alongside U.S. investment and advisory firms Rosemont Seneca Partners and Thornton Group LLC—started fundraising in the second quarter, and has raised its target to $1.5 billion from an original $1 billion plan, a spokesman at Bank of China International Holdings Ltd. said. BOCI is one of the largest stakeholders in Bohai.
The Bohai-Harvest fund is likely one of the biggest Sino-foreign collaborations in private equity to take advantage of the free-trade zone's benefits in converting yuan to dollars that can then be invested in foreign companies.

Hunter Biden and a business partner, Devon Archer, were involved in a fund that reportedly pursued an investment from the Chinese government-owned Bank of China.
The fund was announced in late 2013 — days after Hunter Biden and one of his daughters flew to China from Japan aboard Air Force Two with the vice president, who was in the midst of a diplomatic mission intended to calm rising tensions in the region.

It is unknown if Hunter Biden met with anyone in China as he traveled with his father and the rest of the official U.S. delegation in December 2013. Schweizer noted that where Hunter Biden spent most of his time during that trip “remains largely a mystery.”
However, it is a matter of record that just 10 days after this Beijing trip, Hunter Biden’s firm Rosemont Seneca secured a $1 billion investment from the state-owned bank of China, which was later expanded to $1.5 billion. As the managing partner of Rosemont Seneca, Hunter Biden would undoubtedly have knowledge of this deal, which was a first-of-its-kind arrangement for the recently formed Shanghai Free-Trade Zone. Indeed, Hunter Biden was placed on the Board of Directors of the new Chinese entity, Bohai Harvest RST.
“Rosemont Seneca was getting something for the first time that no other Western firm had in China, a private equity cross-border investment fund formed in the Chinese government’s Shanghai Free-Trade Zone,” Schweizer wrote in Secret Empires, noting that financial giants like Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, and Blackstone did not get a deal like this, but the Chinese government decided to reward a small unknown firm managed by a man with no experience in China or private equity.
“The advantages that Biden and Heinz’s firm got were enormous,” Schweizer noted. “Along with Chinese government capital to invest, by operating from the Shanghai Free-Trade Zone they could take Chinese government funds and invest there, or take them out of the country and invest them in the United States or elsewhere. No one else had such an arrangement in China. Rosemont Seneca was essentially placed first in line.”
Though the Times’ article notes that Vice President Biden “warned” the Chinese leaders during his Beijing trip, it fails to mention the criticisms of Biden’s kid-gloves treatment of China at a time when the communist regime’s behavior was increasingly and openly menacing to U.S. allies in the region ... “To put this into context, in 2013, the Chinese have just exerted air rights over the South Pacific, the South China Sea,” Schweizer said. “They basically have said, ‘If you want to fly in this area, you have to get Chinese approval. We are claiming sovereignty over this territory.’ Highly controversial in Japan, in the Philippines, and in other countries. Joe Biden is supposed to be going there to confront the Chinese. Well, he gets widely criticized on that trip for going soft on China. So basically, no challenging them, and Japan and other countries are quite upset about this.”
The Hunter Biden deal appears to be in keeping with a foreign influence peddling tactic China uses to get favorable treatment from American politicians.
“The Chinese government has figured out that the way to get favorable treatment from policymakers in Washington, DC, is by, basically, signing sweetheart deals with the children of politicians because they think by doing so, they’ll get better policy positions from our government,” Schweizer said. “And the history indicates in the Obama administration that that’s exactly what happens.”
Source: nytimes.com
a lawyer for Hunter Biden said he did not conduct any business related to the China investment fund on that trip, and was not an equity owner in the fund while his father was vice president. He later acquired a 10 percent interest in the entity that oversees the fund, but to date has not received any money from the arrangement, according to the lawyer.
Seems to me that whether or not Hunter had actually received any money is a bit of a red herring to deflect the point that Hunter HAS received a 10 percent share of a highly valuable asset. It's like being given ownership of a highly valuable sports car, and saying "but I didn't receive any money". When you sell the car, then you will receive a ton of $$$. The fact that you don't have the money yet does not mean "there is nothing to see here".

  • Event: Ukrainians rise up to overthrow their corrupt (but fairly elected) president, Viktor Yanukovych (for reasons).
    • Keep in mind that at this point Ukraine is a struggling democracy, and DESPERATELY needs money
    • Note: there is compelling evidence that this "revolution" may have actually been a "U.S. backed coup"
Source: wikipedia.org
The 2014 Ukrainian revolution (also known as the Euromaidan revolution, or Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity; Ukrainian: Революція гідності, Revoliutsiia hidnosti) took place in Ukraine in February 2014, when a series of violent events involving protesters, riot police, and unknown shooters in the capital, Kyiv, culminated in the ousting of the elected Ukrainian President, Viktor Yanukovych, and the overthrow of the Ukrainian Government.
Successive Ukrainian governments in the 2000s sought a closer relationship with the European Union (EU). The government of Yanukovych had been negotiating an association agreement with the European Union since 2012. Such comprehensive trade agreement with the EU would have impacted Ukraine's trade agreements with Russia, the latter being Ukraine's biggest trade partner at the time. Yanukovych believed that the complications could be addressed, and he said that he intended to enter the agreement, but continued to postpone. This was interpreted as an attempt to back out of signing this agreement, and led to a wave of protests which came to be known as the "Euromaidan" movement. Clashes between the protestors and the riot police became violent, and resulted in the deaths of nearly 130 people, including 18 police officers. As the tensions rose, the personal safety of the president became untenable; on 22 February he fled from Kyiv to Russia. The protesters proceeded to take control of the government. On the same day, the parliament declared that Yanukovych was relieved of duty in a 328-to-0 vote.

  • Event: As part of an investigation into money laundering, British officials froze London bank accounts containing $23 million that allegedly belonged to Mr. Zlochevsky, the owner of Burisma Holdings, and who was Ukraine’s ecology minister under former President Viktor Yanukovych (before he was forced into exile).
Note: Burisma Holdings is the biggest fracking company in Ukraine

Britain’s Serious Fraud Office, an independent government agency, specifically forbade Mr. Zlochevsky, as well as Burisma Holdings, the company’s chief legal officer and another company owned by Mr. Zlochevsky, to have any access to the accounts.

“In the case of former Ecology Minister Mykola Zlochevsky, the U.K. authorities had seized $23 million in illicit assets that belonged to the Ukrainian people,” [the American ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey R. Pyatt] said.
There is a lot of information to unpack here. REMEMBER, two months earlier Ukrainians had risen up to overthrow their corrupt government. Alert readers might notice that the ECOLOGY MINISTER in that regime was a man who owned the biggest fracking company in Ukraine. WTF? Ecology and fracking don't normally go hand in hand. Corruption tends to involve money, and also money-laundering. Seems quite possible that the $23 million was tainted $$$, doesn't it? As luck had it, I guess, there had also been simultaneous scandals in the UK regarding money-laundering ... Zlochevsky and Burisima just happened to get caught up in that activity.
One other point: the NEW government, the struggling democracy one, DESPERATELY needs money at this point. Freezing the account was a step in the right direction, for it made it possible for a proper investigation to be conducted, and returned to the Ukrainian people.

"During his two-day visit this week to Kiev, Ukraine, Vice President Joe Biden unfurled President Barack Obama‘s 'U.S. Crisis Support Package for Ukraine.'"
snip
The U.S. oil and gas industry has long lobbied to “weaponize” its fracking prowess to fend off Russian global gas market dominance. It’s done so primarily in two ways.
One way: by transforming the U.S. State Department into a global promoter of fracking via its Unconventional Gas Technical Engagement Program (formerly the Global Shale Gas Initiative), which is a key, albeit less talked about, part of President Obama’s “Climate Action Plan.
The other way: by exporting U.S. fracked gas to the global market, namely EU countries currently heavily dependent on Russia’s gas spigot [such as Ukraine].
Reminder: Biden was an emissary FOR OBAMA in 2014. OBAMA's STATE DEPARTMENT was "a global promoter of fracking", in order to keep America safe from Russia! This was way back in 2014 (before Russiagate! exploded in 2016 as a way to distract the public from the DNC scandals exposed by WikiLeaks)

9 Questions To Ask About Biden's Work With A Gas Company In Ukraine (thefederalist.com)
7. Why would a Ukrainian energy company want Devon Archer or Hunter Biden to serve on its board?
Assuming that they have been appointed to the board, the most innocent explanation is that the company wants to increase foreign direct investment and views Archer and Biden as having the experience to make that happen. Archer, for example, is a long-time investor and financier.
"The most disturbing explanation is that the company is attempting to curry favor with the U.S. government by enlisting the services of the close family friend and campaign bundler of the Secretary of the State and the son of the vice president."
 
Why shouldn't Hunter Biden join the board of a gas company in Ukraine?
Isn't that a bit fishy? Why do you say that?
Because he's the vice-president's son! That's a coincidence. "This is totally based on merit," said Burisma's chairman, Alan Apter.
He doesn't sound very Ukrainian. He's American, as is the other new board member, Devon Archer.
Who? Devon Archer, who works with Hunter Biden at Rosemont Seneca partners, which is half owned by Rosemont Capital, a private equity firm founded by Archer and Christopher Heinz.
 
R. Hunter Biden Should Declare Who Really Owns His New Ukrainian Employer, Burisma Holdings (nakedcapitalism.com)
But surely, that would be a failure of due diligence on the part of messrs Biden, Archer and Kwasniewski? Indeed it would, but there is a most unfortunate precedent for such a failure, which you can read about here, at some length. To sum it up: in 2006 or so, two Bidens, James Biden (future VP’s brother) and our R. Hunter Biden (future VP’s son), wildly overpaid a drug-addicted very senior Moonie for a hedge fund marketing operation that was hugely exaggerating its size and success, and turned out to be distributing ponzis, including the giant Allen Stanford ponzi, second only to Madoff, and other eyecatching frauds, such as Ponta Negra, via a sales network that included brokers with visibly very terrible FINRA records.
 
Note that none of these articles even considered the dilemma put on Ukrainian prosecutors who were trying to pursue a case of corruption against Burisima. It's almost the same kind of dilemma faced by Tara Reade; to make the decision to take action in a way that angers a powerful person takes incredible bravery. Joe Biden is a very powerful man who has many connections to other very powerful friends. Wouldn't any normal person believe that to go against Joe would incur his wrath, and that pursuing a corruption case against Hunter Biden's employer would essentially be going against Joe?
Wouldn't it be a normal, human reaction for Ukrainian prosecutors to fear the power of Joe Biden, and as a result, make the case against Burisima Holdings go away?

Officials at the prosecutor general’s office, he added, were asked by the United Kingdom “to send documents supporting the seizure. Instead they sent letters to Zlochevsky’s attorneys attesting that there was no case against him. As a result, the money was freed by the U.K. court, and shortly thereafter the money was moved to Cyprus.”

But after Ukrainian prosecutors refused to provide documents needed in the investigation, a British court in January ordered the Serious Fraud Office to unfreeze the assets. The refusal by the Ukrainian prosecutor general’s office to cooperate was the target of a stinging attack by the American ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey R. Pyatt, who called out Burisma’s owner by name in a speech in September.

Mr. Pyatt went on to call for an investigation into “the misconduct” of the prosecutors who wrote the letters. In his speech, the ambassador did not mention Hunter Biden’s connection to Burisma.
Do you see what happened? After telling Shokin to do nothing re the Burisima case in June, because Joe Biden was holding up aid to Ukraine over it, Ambassador Pyatt now publicly accuses Shokin for "misconduct" for heeding the Ambassador's advice! Does this sound very strange to anyone else but me?
Unless ... a cynical person might suspect that the ambassador's actions might have been part of a plan that created an opportunity for Joe Biden to ride in like a white knight and answer the call of this damsel, er, Ambassador in distress. But, oops, I might have just given away the plot ... Also, remember that 2016 was an election year, making a strong public statement against corruption certainly couldn't hurt, eh?

  • Event: Joe Biden spoke before the Ukrainian Parliament. In what might appear to be a surreal episode of the Twilight Zone, Joe actually “warn[ed] Ukrainian legislators to waste no more time in rooting out corruption” and spoke out against the power of a tiny group of oligarchs, who own about 85 percent of Ukraine's gross domestic product
Source: NYT Editorial Board
The only applause Vice President Joseph Biden Jr. got while he addressed the Ukrainian Parliament on Tuesday was when he berated Russia ... By contrast, Mr. Biden’s ardent talk of the need to put an end to Ukraine’s ubiquitous corruption and the power of its oligarchs was met with stony silence.
Mr. Biden was right to upbraid Russia and to pledge an extra $190 million in aid to Ukraine. And as a Western leader who has made Ukraine his special project, he was also right to warn Ukrainian legislators to waste no more time in rooting out corruption
 
  • Event: Dec 12, 2015, In response to Joe's speech, NYT Editorial Board points out that owner of Burisma is "suspected of corrupt practices", and "This is not a board [Hunter Biden] should be sitting on."

"Sadly, the credibility of Mr. Biden’s message may be undermined by the association of his son with a Ukrainian natural-gas company, Burisma Holdings, which is owned by a former government official suspected of corrupt practices. A spokesman for the son, Hunter Biden, argues that he joined the board of Burisma to strengthen its corporate governance. That may be so. But Burisma’s owner, Mykola Zlochevsky, has been under investigation in Britain and in Ukraine. It should be plain to Hunter Biden that any connection with a Ukrainian oligarch damages his father’s efforts to help Ukraine. This is not a board he should be sitting on."

“I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’ I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” Biden recalled telling Poroshenko.
“Well, son of a bitch, he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time,” Biden told the Council on Foreign Relations event, insisting that President Obama was in on the threat.

Shokin was facing steep criticism in Ukraine, and among some U.S. officials, for not bringing enough corruption prosecutions when he was fired. But Ukrainian officials tell [John Solomon] there was one crucial piece of information that Biden must have known but didn’t mention to his audience: The prosecutor he got fired was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings that employed Biden’s younger son, Hunter, as a board member.
snip
Shokin told [John Solomon] in written answers to questions that, before he was fired as general prosecutor, he had made “specific plans” for the investigation that “included interrogations and other crime-investigation procedures into all members of the executive board, including Hunter Biden.”
 

Final Comments

I agree with the conclusions put forward to John Solomon by U.S. and Ukrainian authorities, "Biden and his office clearly had to know about the general prosecutor's probe of Burisma and his son's role", despite Biden's public claims to the contrary.
I'm sorry, but Joe Biden has to take some responsibility for the fact that when Hunter joined the Board, it created an impediment to the Justice system in Ukraine.
Turns out, THAT is a huge side effect of influence peddling, and it needs to be grokked by everyone. Hunter's presence would have been INTIMIDATING to prosecutors
Re Joe "not getting something out of it financially," as some argue ... For the moment, I won't even talk about stories of Hunter saying that he had to pay Joe 50% of his earnings. As a loving father, doesn't Joe want his children to do well in life? Many loving parents give gifts to their children, completely voluntarily even. Do you know how excited I would be to give my children half of a $2.5 million kitty from Burisima, and 10% of $1.5 Billion investment fund in China? Plus there is the security knowing that if you go broke and fall on your face, your loving children will be in a position to help you.
But the icing on the cake was that AFTER the prosecutors are intimidated into dropping the investigation out of fear of displeasing Joe ... Joe goes on to actually LECTURE Ukrainian parliament about the need for them to cleanup corruption, and demand changes to the prosecutors office ... and then of course, the final coup de grace, when Joe infamously says:
“I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’ I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” Biden recalled telling Poroshenko [the president of Ukraine]
Joe Biden's FAMILY profits from the investigation being called off, and THEN Joe Biden acts like a bully, a tremendously POWERFUL bully, by calling for the dismissal of the prosecutor?
As I said above, it's like putting out a hit job on the man who just saved your child from drowning. That act was cruel to the point of being psychopathic.
And THEN ON TOP OF THAT, Joe BRAGS about what he did, laughingly, in the years that follow. Clearly he enjoyed being able to abuse his power, and crushing a little pawn who got in his way ...

I've been literally spending the last week of my life trying to figure out how best to communicate the FACTS behind Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and the REAL Ukrainegate (Hunter joined a company called Burisima owned by a corrupt oligarch, who was under investigation for money-laundering WHEN HUNTER JOINED THE BOARD OF THE COMPANY!!!) The more research I have performed, the more disgusted I am with the deeply cynical moves of the man who is likely going to become the next leader of the free world, Joe Biden, heaven help us all.
I have focused on using "credible sources", lol, such as the NYT and wsj.com to establish FACTS, a few times I use breitbart.com and foxnews.com for commentary, but only AFTER the facts have been established elsewhere. I'm putting the word "credible" in quotes because these sources are not at all credible to me, they are heavily biased to tell a narrative that favors the status quo, but that is beyond the scope of this essay. One exception: the testimony of former prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was demonized by Joe Biden and fired from his job in order to obtain US aid -> my only source is foxnews.com because "credible" sources never let Shokin tell his side of the story.
To communicate the facts to you as simply as possible, here is the process I have followed:
1) produced a detailed timeline, complete with sources and quotes. But I was afraid of TL;DR, so I decided to publish that last.
2) produced a much simpler "overview" timeline that contains bullet points of key events, with links to sources but no quotes. It's easier to read, but more work for those who want to check sources for themselves.
3) Produced an even higher level, overview graphic image of the MOST IMPORTANT KEY EVENTS!!!
 
So, if you are a TL;DR type person ...
 
START HERE v v v v v v v
Pro Tip: START by looking at this overview graphic image of the MOST IMPORTANT KEY EVENTS!!!!
START HERE ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
 
... then you can expand your view, by looking at the Overview Timeline of Key Events in the Joe Biden - Hunter Biden - Ukraine-gate scandal, with bullet points of key events ...
(also, the overview document contains a preface that I have not reproduced here)
 
... and finally, you can continue reading THIS document, which contains the most detail of all three.
 
The TRUTH of the matter is, Joe Biden didn't lift a finger to stop Hunter Biden from serving on the board of a company whose owner was under investigation for money laundering. He ignored the pressure Hunter's presence would have on Ukrainian prosecutors who were involved in that case because Hunter was the son of perhaps the second most powerful man in the world.
Wouldn't any normal person believe that to go against Joe would incur his wrath, and that pursuing a corruption case against Hunter Biden's employer would essentially be going against Joe? Wouldn't it be a normal, human reaction for Ukrainian prosecutors to fear the power of Joe Biden, and as a result, make the case against Burisima Holdings go away?
I submit to you, in the borrowed words of James Comey,
"no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case".
In the end, the case was not pursued, imagine that! What came after simply shocks me. Joe goes on to actually LECTURE Ukrainian Parliament about the need for THEM to cleanup corruption, and demanded changes to the prosecutors office. Guess how well that speech went over?
The only applause Vice President Joseph Biden Jr. got while he addressed the Ukrainian Parliament on Tuesday was when he berated Russia. That’s not hard: Russia’s venality — the seizure of Crimea and the support for separatists in eastern Ukraine — is a strong unifying force in Ukrainian politics. By contrast, Mr. Biden’s ardent talk of the need to put an end to Ukraine’s ubiquitous corruption and the power of its oligarchs was met with stony silence.
Sadly, the credibility of Mr. Biden’s message may be undermined by the association of his son with a Ukrainian natural-gas company, Burisma Holdings, which is owned by a former government official suspected of corrupt practices ... Burisma’s owner, Mykola Zlochevsky, has been under investigation in Britain and in Ukraine. It should be plain to Hunter Biden that any connection with a Ukrainian oligarch damages his father’s efforts to help Ukraine. This is not a board he should be sitting on.
As we all know now, Biden went even further ... he threatened to CANCEL a US aid package unless - and I still cannot get over this - unless the prosecutor who might have turned a blind eye to the corruption of Hunter Biden's company GOT FIRED. Joe Biden's FAMILY profits from the investigation being called off (to the tune of about $2.5 million), and THEN Joe Biden acts like a cruel bully, a tremendously POWERFUL bully to the prosecutor? IMHO, It's like putting out a hit job on the guy who saved your child from drowning. Who does that?
I submit to you, if Joe Biden cannot see the harm caused when Hunter joined the Board of Burisima, it is because he is intentionally putting blinders on and refusing to see it. Of course, "I didn't know" is a legally acceptable defense in our judicial system. So politicians actually have an incentive to turn a blind eye, or at least pretend to do so, when their relatives engage in influence peddling to the highest bidders.
 
Note: Events described in the timeline are all prior to the "October Surprise" leak of documents. So all the nonsense about whether those docs are "information" or "disinformation" has no bearing on what is contained on this timeline.

Formed in the Shanghai Free Trade Zone in December 2013 as its first cross-border investment private equity firm, BHR is the cross-border investment arm of Bohai Industrial Investment Fund, itself among China’s first-ever RMB-denominated private equity funds approved by the State Council. BHR, with its unique mixed ownership, combines the resources and platforms of China’s largest financial institutions (including Bank of China, China Development Bank Capital, Harvest Fund, Postal Savings Bank of China, China Life and the National Council of Social Security Fund) and the networks and know-how of our U.S.-based investment fund and advisory firm shareholders.
What do you think BHR refers to in that last sentence when they say "the networks and know-how"? They are referring to the CONNECTIONS that their American partners have, baby. And clearly one of the most important and powerful connections in the deal was the connection that Hunter Biden had to his father, Joe Biden, who AT THE TIME was the Vice President of the United States.

The fund—launched by Chinese asset managers Bohai Industrial Investment Fund Management Co. and Harvest Fund Management Co. alongside U.S. investment and advisory firms Rosemont Seneca Partners and Thornton Group LLC—started fundraising in the second quarter, and has raised its target to $1.5 billion from an original $1 billion plan, a spokesman at Bank of China International Holdings Ltd. said. BOCI is one of the largest stakeholders in Bohai.
The Bohai-Harvest fund is likely one of the biggest Sino-foreign collaborations in private equity to take advantage of the free-trade zone's benefits in converting yuan to dollars that can then be invested in foreign companies.

Hunter Biden and a business partner, Devon Archer, were involved in a fund that reportedly pursued an investment from the Chinese government-owned Bank of China.
The fund was announced in late 2013 — days after Hunter Biden and one of his daughters flew to China from Japan aboard Air Force Two with the vice president, who was in the midst of a diplomatic mission intended to calm rising tensions in the region.

It is unknown if Hunter Biden met with anyone in China as he traveled with his father and the rest of the official U.S. delegation in December 2013. Schweizer noted that where Hunter Biden spent most of his time during that trip “remains largely a mystery.”
However, it is a matter of record that just 10 days after this Beijing trip, Hunter Biden’s firm Rosemont Seneca secured a $1 billion investment from the state-owned bank of China, which was later expanded to $1.5 billion. As the managing partner of Rosemont Seneca, Hunter Biden would undoubtedly have knowledge of this deal, which was a first-of-its-kind arrangement for the recently formed Shanghai Free-Trade Zone. Indeed, Hunter Biden was placed on the Board of Directors of the new Chinese entity, Bohai Harvest RST.
“Rosemont Seneca was getting something for the first time that no other Western firm had in China, a private equity cross-border investment fund formed in the Chinese government’s Shanghai Free-Trade Zone,” Schweizer wrote in Secret Empires, noting that financial giants like Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, and Blackstone did not get a deal like this, but the Chinese government decided to reward a small unknown firm managed by a man with no experience in China or private equity.
“The advantages that Biden and Heinz’s firm got were enormous,” Schweizer noted. “Along with Chinese government capital to invest, by operating from the Shanghai Free-Trade Zone they could take Chinese government funds and invest there, or take them out of the country and invest them in the United States or elsewhere. No one else had such an arrangement in China. Rosemont Seneca was essentially placed first in line.”
Though the Times’ article notes that Vice President Biden “warned” the Chinese leaders during his Beijing trip, it fails to mention the criticisms of Biden’s kid-gloves treatment of China at a time when the communist regime’s behavior was increasingly and openly menacing to U.S. allies in the region ... “To put this into context, in 2013, the Chinese have just exerted air rights over the South Pacific, the South China Sea,” Schweizer said. “They basically have said, ‘If you want to fly in this area, you have to get Chinese approval. We are claiming sovereignty over this territory.’ Highly controversial in Japan, in the Philippines, and in other countries. Joe Biden is supposed to be going there to confront the Chinese. Well, he gets widely criticized on that trip for going soft on China. So basically, no challenging them, and Japan and other countries are quite upset about this.”
The Hunter Biden deal appears to be in keeping with a foreign influence peddling tactic China uses to get favorable treatment from American politicians.
“The Chinese government has figured out that the way to get favorable treatment from policymakers in Washington, DC, is by, basically, signing sweetheart deals with the children of politicians because they think by doing so, they’ll get better policy positions from our government,” Schweizer said. “And the history indicates in the Obama administration that that’s exactly what happens.”
Source: nytimes.com
a lawyer for Hunter Biden said he did not conduct any business related to the China investment fund on that trip, and was not an equity owner in the fund while his father was vice president. He later acquired a 10 percent interest in the entity that oversees the fund, but to date has not received any money from the arrangement, according to the lawyer.
Seems to me that whether or not Hunter had actually received any money is a bit of a red herring to deflect the point that Hunter HAS received a 10 percent share of a highly valuable asset. It's like being given ownership of a highly valuable sports car, and saying "but I didn't receive any money". When you sell the car, then you will receive a ton of $$$. The fact that you don't have the money yet does not mean "there is nothing to see here".

Source: wikipedia.org
The 2014 Ukrainian revolution (also known as the Euromaidan revolution, or Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity; Ukrainian: Революція гідності, Revoliutsiia hidnosti) took place in Ukraine in February 2014, when a series of violent events involving protesters, riot police, and unknown shooters in the capital, Kyiv, culminated in the ousting of the elected Ukrainian President, Viktor Yanukovych, and the overthrow of the Ukrainian Government.
Successive Ukrainian governments in the 2000s sought a closer relationship with the European Union (EU). The government of Yanukovych had been negotiating an association agreement with the European Union since 2012. Such comprehensive trade agreement with the EU would have impacted Ukraine's trade agreements with Russia, the latter being Ukraine's biggest trade partner at the time. Yanukovych believed that the complications could be addressed, and he said that he intended to enter the agreement, but continued to postpone. This was interpreted as an attempt to back out of signing this agreement, and led to a wave of protests which came to be known as the "Euromaidan" movement. Clashes between the protestors and the riot police became violent, and resulted in the deaths of nearly 130 people, including 18 police officers. As the tensions rose, the personal safety of the president became untenable; on 22 February he fled from Kyiv to Russia. The protesters proceeded to take control of the government. On the same day, the parliament declared that Yanukovych was relieved of duty in a 328-to-0 vote.

A December 2016 survey by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology found that 34 percent of respondents in the government-controlled Ukraine regarded the change in power as an "illegal armed coup", while 56 percent regarded it as a "popular revolution".
 

April 2014

  • Event: As part of an investigation into money laundering, British officials froze London bank accounts containing $23 million that allegedly belonged to Mr. Zlochevsky, the owner of Burisma Holdings, and who was Ukraine’s ecology minister under former President Viktor Yanukovych (before he was forced into exile).
Note: Burisma Holdings is the biggest fracking company in Ukraine
Source: nytimes.com
Britain’s Serious Fraud Office, an independent government agency, specifically forbade Mr. Zlochevsky, as well as Burisma Holdings, the company’s chief legal officer and another company owned by Mr. Zlochevsky, to have any access to the accounts.
snip
“In the case of former Ecology Minister Mykola Zlochevsky, the U.K. authorities had seized $23 million in illicit assets that belonged to the Ukrainian people,” [the American ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey R. Pyatt] said.
There is a lot of information to unpack here. REMEMBER, two months earlier Ukrainians had risen up to overthrow their corrupt government. Alert readers might notice that the ECOLOGY MINISTER in that regime was a man who owned the biggest fracking company in Ukraine. WTF? Ecology and fracking don't normally go hand in hand. Corruption tends to involve money, and also money-laundering. Seems quite possible that the $23 million was tainted $$$, doesn't it? As luck had it, I guess, there had also been simultaneous scandals in the UK regarding money-laundering ... Zlochevsky and Burisima just happened to get caught up in that activity.
One other point: the NEW government, the struggling democracy one, DESPERATELY needs money at this point. Freezing the account was a step in the right direction, for it made it possible for a proper investigation to be conducted, and returned to the Ukrainian people.
 
  • Event: Apr 23- Joe "Champion of the Climate Crisis" Biden visits Ukraine to pitch FRACKING and "energy independence" as the U.S. endorsed solution to Ukraine's problems. Because any child can tell you that the thing that a struggling democracy needs the very most is FRACKING!

"During his two-day visit this week to Kiev, Ukraine, Vice President Joe Biden unfurled President Barack Obama‘s 'U.S. Crisis Support Package for Ukraine.'"
snip
The U.S. oil and gas industry has long lobbied to “weaponize” its fracking prowess to fend off Russian global gas market dominance. It’s done so primarily in two ways.
One way: by transforming the U.S. State Department into a global promoter of fracking via its Unconventional Gas Technical Engagement Program (formerly the Global Shale Gas Initiative), which is a key, albeit less talked about, part of President Obama’s “Climate Action Plan.
The other way: by exporting U.S. fracked gas to the global market, namely EU countries currently heavily dependent on Russia’s gas spigot [such as Ukraine].
Reminder: Biden was an emissary FOR OBAMA in 2014. OBAMA's STATE DEPARTMENT was "a global promoter of fracking", in order to keep America safe from Russia! This was way back in 2014 (before Russiagate! exploded in 2016 as a way to distract the public from the DNC scandals exposed by WikiLeaks)

According to Schweizer’s book, Vice President Biden met with Archer in April 2014 right as Archer was named to the board at Burisma. A month later, Hunter Biden was named to the board, to oversee Burisma’s legal team.
Joe says that Hunter was hired because of his qualifications, not because he was the VP's son. Is that why Devon Archer was hired too?

9 Questions To Ask About Biden's Work With A Gas Company In Ukraine (thefederalist.com)
7. Why would a Ukrainian energy company want Devon Archer or Hunter Biden to serve on its board?
Assuming that they have been appointed to the board, the most innocent explanation is that the company wants to increase foreign direct investment and views Archer and Biden as having the experience to make that happen. Archer, for example, is a long-time investor and financier.
"The most disturbing explanation is that the company is attempting to curry favor with the U.S. government by enlisting the services of the close family friend and campaign bundler of the Secretary of the State and the son of the vice president."
 
Why shouldn't Hunter Biden join the board of a gas company in Ukraine?
Isn't that a bit fishy? Why do you say that?
Because he's the vice-president's son! That's a coincidence. "This is totally based on merit," said Burisma's chairman, Alan Apter.
He doesn't sound very Ukrainian. He's American, as is the other new board member, Devon Archer.
Who? Devon Archer, who works with Hunter Biden at Rosemont Seneca partners, which is half owned by Rosemont Capital, a private equity firm founded by Archer and Christopher Heinz.
 
R. Hunter Biden Should Declare Who Really Owns His New Ukrainian Employer, Burisma Holdings (nakedcapitalism.com)
But surely, that would be a failure of due diligence on the part of messrs Biden, Archer and Kwasniewski? Indeed it would, but there is a most unfortunate precedent for such a failure, which you can read about here, at some length. To sum it up: in 2006 or so, two Bidens, James Biden (future VP’s brother) and our R. Hunter Biden (future VP’s son), wildly overpaid a drug-addicted very senior Moonie for a hedge fund marketing operation that was hugely exaggerating its size and success, and turned out to be distributing ponzis, including the giant Allen Stanford ponzi, second only to Madoff, and other eyecatching frauds, such as Ponta Negra, via a sales network that included brokers with visibly very terrible FINRA records.
 
Note that none of these articles even considered the dilemma put on Ukrainian prosecutors who were trying to pursue a case of corruption against Burisima. It's almost the same kind of dilemma faced by Tara Reade; to make the decision to take action in a way that angers a powerful person takes incredible bravery. Joe Biden is a very powerful man who has many connections to other very powerful friends. Wouldn't any normal person believe that to go against Joe would incur his wrath, and that pursuing a corruption case against Hunter Biden's employer would essentially be going against Joe?
Wouldn't it be a normal, human reaction for Ukrainian prosecutors to fear the power of Joe Biden, and as a result, make the case against Burisima Holdings go away?

But after Ukrainian prosecutors refused to provide documents needed in the investigation, a British court in January ordered the Serious Fraud Office to unfreeze the assets.

Officials at the prosecutor general’s office, he added, were asked by the United Kingdom “to send documents supporting the seizure. Instead they sent letters to Zlochevsky’s attorneys attesting that there was no case against him. As a result, the money was freed by the U.K. court, and shortly thereafter the money was moved to Cyprus.”

Ryan F. Toohey, a Burisma spokesman, said that Hunter Biden would not comment for this article.

Asked about the British investigation, which is continuing, Mr. Toohey said, “Not only was the case dismissed and the company vindicated by the outcome, but it speaks volumes that all his legal costs were recouped.”

Pyatt told him that the investigation has to be handled with white gloves, which according to Mr. Shokin, that implied do nothing,” the notes from the interview stated. The notes also claimed Shokin was told Biden had held up U.S. aid to Ukraine over the investigation.
Keep this in mind for what comes next.

But after Ukrainian prosecutors refused to provide documents needed in the investigation, a British court in January ordered the Serious Fraud Office to unfreeze the assets. The refusal by the Ukrainian prosecutor general’s office to cooperate was the target of a stinging attack by the American ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey R. Pyatt, who called out Burisma’s owner by name in a speech in September.
snip
Mr. Pyatt went on to call for an investigation into “the misconduct” of the prosecutors who wrote the letters. In his speech, the ambassador did not mention Hunter Biden’s connection to Burisma.
Do you see what happened? After telling Shokin to do nothing re the Burisima case in June, because Joe Biden was holding up aid to Ukraine over it, Ambassador Pyatt now publicly accuses Shokin for "misconduct" for heeding the Ambassador's advice! Does this sound very strange to anyone else but me?
Unless ... a cynical person might suspect that the ambassador's actions might have been part of a plan that created an opportunity for Joe Biden to ride in like a white knight and answer the call of this damsel, er, Ambassador in distress. But, oops, I might have just given away the plot ... Also, remember that 2016 was an election year, making a strong public statement against corruption certainly couldn't hurt, eh?
 

Dec 2015

  • Event: Joe Biden spoke before the Ukrainian Parliament. In what might appear to be a surreal episode of the Twilight Zone, Joe actually “warn[ed] Ukrainian legislators to waste no more time in rooting out corruption” and spoke out against the power of a tiny group of oligarchs, who own about 85 percent of Ukraine's gross domestic product
Source: NYT Editorial Board
The only applause Vice President Joseph Biden Jr. got while he addressed the Ukrainian Parliament on Tuesday was when he berated Russia ... By contrast, Mr. Biden’s ardent talk of the need to put an end to Ukraine’s ubiquitous corruption and the power of its oligarchs was met with stony silence.
Mr. Biden was right to upbraid Russia and to pledge an extra $190 million in aid to Ukraine. And as a Western leader who has made Ukraine his special project, he was also right to warn Ukrainian legislators to waste no more time in rooting out corruption
 
  • Event: Dec 12, 2015, In response to Joe's speech, NYT Editorial Board points out that owner of Burisma is "suspected of corrupt practices", and "This is not a board [Hunter Biden] should be sitting on."
Source: NYT Editorial Board
"Sadly, the credibility of Mr. Biden’s message may be undermined by the association of his son with a Ukrainian natural-gas company, Burisma Holdings, which is owned by a former government official suspected of corrupt practices. A spokesman for the son, Hunter Biden, argues that he joined the board of Burisma to strengthen its corporate governance. That may be so. But Burisma’s owner, Mykola Zlochevsky, has been under investigation in Britain and in Ukraine. It should be plain to Hunter Biden that any connection with a Ukrainian oligarch damages his father’s efforts to help Ukraine. This is not a board he should be sitting on."
 

Mar 2016

  • Event: Biden threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, if it didn’t immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin

In his own words, with video cameras rolling, Biden described how he threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending the former Soviet republic toward insolvency, if it didn’t immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.
“I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’ I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” Biden recalled telling Poroshenko.
“Well, son of a bitch, he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time,” Biden told the Council on Foreign Relations event, insisting that President Obama was in on the threat.
 
  • Event: The Ukrainian Parliament votes to remove a prosecutor general Viktor Shokin
Source: thehill.com
Shokin was facing steep criticism in Ukraine, and among some U.S. officials, for not bringing enough corruption prosecutions when he was fired. But Ukrainian officials tell [John Solomon] there was one crucial piece of information that Biden must have known but didn’t mention to his audience: The prosecutor he got fired was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings that employed Biden’s younger son, Hunter, as a board member.
snip
Shokin told [John Solomon] in written answers to questions that, before he was fired as general prosecutor, he had made “specific plans” for the investigation that “included interrogations and other crime-investigation procedures into all members of the executive board, including Hunter Biden.”
 

Final Comments

I agree with the conclusions put forward to John Solomon by U.S. and Ukrainian authorities, "Biden and his office clearly had to know about the general prosecutor's probe of Burisma and his son's role", despite Biden's public claims to the contrary.
I'm sorry, but Joe Biden has to take some responsibility for the fact that when Hunter joined the Board, it created an impediment to the Justice system in Ukraine.
Turns out, THAT is a huge side effect of influence peddling, and it needs to be grokked by everyone. Hunter's presence would have been INTIMIDATING to prosecutors
Re Joe "not getting something out of it financially," as some argue ... For the moment, I won't even talk about stories of Hunter saying that he had to pay Joe 50% of his earnings. As a loving father, doesn't Joe want his children to do well in life? Many loving parents give gifts to their children, completely voluntarily even. Do you know how excited I would be to give my children half of a $2.5 million kitty from Burisima, and 10% of $1.5 Billion investment fund in China? Plus there is the security knowing that if you go broke and fall on your face, your loving children will be in a position to help you.
But the icing on the cake was that AFTER the prosecutors are intimidated into dropping the investigation out of fear of displeasing Joe ... Joe goes on to actually LECTURE Ukrainian parliament about the need for them to cleanup corruption, and demand changes to the prosecutors office ... and then of course, the final coup de grace, when Joe infamously says:
“I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’ I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” Biden recalled telling Poroshenko [the president of Ukraine]
Joe Biden's FAMILY profits from the investigation being called off, and THEN Joe Biden acts like a bully, a tremendously POWERFUL bully, by calling for the dismissal of the prosecutor?
As I said above, it's like putting out a hit job on the man who just saved your child from drowning. That act was cruel to the point of being psychopathic.
And THEN ON TOP OF THAT, Joe BRAGS about what he did, laughingly, in the years that follow. Clearly he enjoyed being able to abuse his power, and crushing a little pawn who got in his way ...

Hello people,
I'm a 30 y/o partnered guy living alone (long distance thing). I moved to DFW for work after living in Mexico City, Washington DC, and Chicago during the last few years. I loved all of these cities, but haven't found myself fitting in Dallas so far.
I ended up moving to Uptown, mostly because:
However, most of the walk-to-all-places hype is gone now because I'm taking the pandemic very seriously and might go back to a physical office until mid 2021. I also feel very disconnected from the Uptown vibe, so I feel I'm ready to try another area in the DFW. This is where I need help from y'all.
I'd appreciate peoples thoughts on where would be good neighborhoods to try if I'm looking for:
Really looking forward to hearing people's thoughts on this one!

2020.10.22 21:54 brianberger56 FBI Collusion With Corrupt Prosecutors & Sadistic Cops is Criminal And Real Reforms Requires Treating Criminal DAs and Feds Accountable for Their Sadistic Misconduct...In N.C. and Nationally!

https://www.facebook.com/Police-Brutality-Corruption-Injustice-in-US-Criminal-Justice-System-101748924941107
https://youtu.be/a8hwgrz6zMY
https://myfox8.com/news/wilmington-officer-tosses-k9-onto-suspect/
Using a police K-9 to maul an unarmed person inside their car at a checkpoint isn't defensive, isn't a reaction to an observation perceived as potentially threatening, it's just plain sadistic. Wilmington, NC, long-known within the political-not-justice or public protection-oriented culture of the institutionally-corrupt Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for having a deep, long-standing “culture of corruption,” shared interests highly valued and actively protected by the FBI, US Department of Justice (USDOJ) and US Attorney’s Office. Thus, despite jurisdiction and claims to a mission including an enumerated interest in ensuring and enforcing laws and sacred rights including investigating and prosecuting public corruption, theft, fraud and abuses of public resources and governance by both public and private institutions & officials, protection of Constitutional, Civil and human rights, legal protections & process rights AND judicial system integrity, law enforcement oversight and prosecutions for unmitigated corruption, criminal practices so extreme, abusive and offensive to individual rights AND permitted & rewarded by local and State governments that provided, and only provided, extreme public pressure to act builds to a boiling point, in which case the aforementioned Federal agencies might reluctantly urge local leaders to placate their citizens, through gentle written non-binding agreements and nudging to alter public perceptions, a far cry from the statements and claims of the FBI, DOJ and Federal officials involving investigation, and prosecutions , of criminal misconduct by law enforcement officers as well as related criminal misconduct by prosecutors (including District Attorneys) and judicial officials acting “Under Color of Law,” the latter also rarely, reluctantly, if ever, monitored, investigated or prosecuted according to the statements of the Federal DOJ, FBI or affiliated agencies, no matter how egregious, horrific, routine and extreme the violations of even basic rights (Life, Liberty, Equal Protections under the law, Due Process, rules concerning evidence, procedures).
Even near-sacred American ideals of Justice like the lives of innocent persons and families, communities, completely ignored by sadistic, corrupt, rapists and murderers in uniform, rewarded for their brutality and dishonesty, promoted & protected by brass and peers without exception, epidemic in law enforcement culture from coast-to-coast, along with similarly criminal misconduct and corruption, dishonesty and gang-like silence if not affirmation and participation, mockery and concealment of the crimes and violations of innocent victims inside the Courthouse as on the streets, by Court officers and corrupt DAs including Wilmington’s Ben David, his twin, Jon, for faux changes of venue, and judges including those with known discriminatory behaviors, corrupt “side hustles” or even known involvement in child sexual abuse, the latter occurring in Wilmington with DA David refusing to even bring charges or pursue justice for a six year old girl molested by the husband of a sitting judge and a former Representative in the N.C. General Assembly.
Whether using a Police K-9 as a sadistic weapon against an unarmed, surrendering individual at a checkpoint designed with officer safety in mind, shooting an unarmed, surrendering suspect 27 TIMES or a boy executed through a window for holding a PlayStation controller during a SWAT warrant service to apprehend a privileged college student, then blasting his dog for bentertainment. The murder of a skinny non-violent alcoholic in County Jail with no plausible explanation. Executing a slimeball ex-Sheriff in his boxer shorts through torture-by-Tazing until his heart exploded.
Similarly, placing multiple loaded AR-15s and shotguns to the head of an elected official and the elected representative’s golden retriever, targeting cars with that official’s bumper sticker, and four years of death threats, terrorism, kidnapping, civil and human rights violations, unlawful theft of property, violations of privacy, and the most basic rights and protections enshrined in the Laws, including and largely pursued in order to prevent a duly elected official from carrying out their sworn duties and serve their constituents, deliberate public deception to harm and undermine the hated anti-corruption, principled rather than profiteering loner in local political decision-making, harassment to obstruct, delay and seek any cause whatsoever to detain and delay the necessary movements of an official in carrying out their duties, and engaging in a deliberate campaign involving Mr. David’s active direction and participation in commission of the crimes and his own personal and staff-delegated criminal prosecutorial misconduct and additional criminal defecation on Justice, Liberty and human decency.
These are not isolated incidents rather a sample plate of the hundreds if not thousands of sadistic, criminal acts against primarily non-threatening, mostly law-abiding, non-violent and unarmed persons or a vulnerable, inebriated, unconscious, homeless or mentally ill easy victim for boxing practice or habitual sexual predation of those vulnerable to consequence-free exploitation and brutalization by bullies who get-off on violence and know that in these and EVERY SINGLE incident of criminal misconduct and rape, murder, terrorism, dehumanization, exploitation, and too many incidents by far too many uniformed thugs engaged in felonious habitual abuse by law enforcement officers (LEOs), assisted by their “no whistleblowers” peers and praise of the Sheriff and brass in New Hanover County, NC.
District Attorney Ben David, Wilmington Police Chief Evangelous, who relayed one incident involving the shooting death of an unarmed black man on PCP and rumors of violent protests, the desire of his cops to use live military anti-personnel grenades against civilians. Fortunately, the victim’s mother called for peace and calm and no further casualties or escalation occurred.
Along with the Sheriff, DA David and their pals in the City and County governments, FBI Wilmington Bureau, the US Attorney for the District, or now Gov. Roy Cooper’s NC State Bureau of Investigation, corrupt, incompetent and presumably as with AG Josh Stein close friends with Benjamin David and the corrupt powers long-entrenched (often going back to 1898, and the only violent Coup D’-Etat on American soil in U.S. history when the blood of freed, talented Negroes and “carpetbagging Yankee” Republicans turned the Cape Fear River red and many others were forced to flee forever or be subjected to lynching). Some habits die hard. That habit is still practiced. Probably rarely, but really, and with the mockery of the public and protection of the US DOJ, Civil Rights Division, FBI, SBI and post-ethics media fiction writers.
Presumably, those threats are rare. Accountability for criminal misconduct under DA David and his Assistant DA’s is even rarer. In none of these or any other incidents, not one, did David pursue justice through even his own corrupt, choreographed, no justice Courthouse. That’s right, NOT ONCE, NEVER, in these and too many equally if not more sadistic and cold-blooded, murderous, life-ruining, family-destroying, anti-American and anti-community and inhumane LEO crimes that would appall any Judeo-Christian community or person with a civilized related value system. Sadly, these public attributes are severely lacking in the larger community and completely non-existent in political and law enforcement circles.
President Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder and his swamp rat legion of the self-serving who continue to infest the Bureau and Federal government agencies or at least the FBI and US DOJ were perfectly fine with ANY and ALL criminal misconduct, even aiding and colluding in many crimes and injustices, including assisting, though not to the extent sought by Mr. David through clearly dishonest and evil attempts to elevate his unlawful and dishonorable perversion of Justice and disdain for the Rule of Law, human and civil rights, the US Constitution and the ideals of American justice and jurisprudence, though Federal officials absolutely aided and colluded in criminal acts including murder, rapes, cover-ups of LEO crimes, torture, false imprisonment, evidence tampering, even the undermining of democracy itself by acts of terrorism & abuse, torture, violent physical attacks, obstruction & attempted intimidation and bribery to prevent an elected official from representing the public thus depriving The People of their representative in THEIR government.
I will never be able to walk into a police station again without bringing witnesses even to report a crime committed against me.
I suspect that rational evidence-based distrust and knowledge of the undeniable, though oft-excused, epidemic institutional and cultural corruption that certainly is more systemic and beyond internal reform, than some rare “bad apple” exception or “Criminal profiling” or “racial profiling,” as the ages (young black children, old white grandmas, etc…etc..), races, genders, cultures, and other “identifiers” demonstrates, though the primary factor for being victimized by criminal cops is unquestionably economic and not racial, we all know black and brown folks are targeted and victimized at greater rates per capita than other demographics, though most unarmed victims of police shootings are Caucasians. Perps are LEOs of all shapes and stripes, and I can tell you in four years the three white and one black Commissioner I served beside mentioned the word “Justice” zero times, but real estate deals hundreds of times, the latter dominated the concerns of those elected officials, business opportunities for themselves and their business associates.
In Cities like, hypothetically, Denver, the African-American Mayor and his mentor, current Senate candidate, former Governor, and Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper sold seats on the “Citizen Oversight Board” purposed to add some oversight to excessive law enforcement brutality and criminal misconduct.
In fifteen years, that Board with its seat-purchasers, along with the complicit role of the ACLU and NAACP in furthering rather than mitigating violence, murders and brutality against innocent civilians and suspected criminals, much like the ACLU of NC and NAACP in NC supported and NEVER opposed these excessive, escalatory violence and murder permitting Standard Operating Procedures, talent acquisition and training, and the various other underlying causes of law enforcement criminality that is far more violent, dangerous and routine than the incarcerated, who are less sadistic and violent than law enforcement –
--most of the incarcerated are non-violent, salvageable but opportunity and father-less black kids suffering the consequences of “KKK Joe” Biden’s proudest and only accomplishment, besides fighting with the Klan to kill Civil Rights legislation, his “Biden Crime Bill” that greatly escalated mass incarceration of black youths, many young fathers, the ridiculous 100X punishment for their crack while Biden’s daughter is a well-known cocaine-fiend in that crime family, and the work of corrupt DAs like Ben David, Kamala Harris and the bastard in Texas who lied for and protected the fat pig who murdered Sandra Bland (though no white folks probably have a clue who Sandra is or what I’m referencing).
Any, well, most any, decent, empathetic person harassed, beaten, tortured, defamed through culturally-encouraged dishonesty and public deceit, in a field with zero-transparency, no integrity and the standard practice of abuse, murder followed by lies and victim smearing after a gang-beating, tazering, stomping, purely malicious brutalization, borne from the injustice and inhumanity of those who are drawn to the underpaid, under-trained, overly-tasked, low-intelligence and lower virtue-oriented outmoded and major reform requiring job tormented and permanently harmed by police brutality and the broken criminal justice system, I have been devoted ever since to sharing my story (and sounding absolutely crazy, certifiable, admittedly…criminal justice reform is pretty much the only thing I’ve ever used Twitter for and primarily all I post about on FB…like a crazy…albeit it not anti-police or a “de-funder” or violent radical) in the hope that nobody else will ever experience what I experienced, having to learn how to talk again, literally, from the severity of the damage and head trauma w/permanent neurological damage from being beat down and tortured despite committing no crime, breaking no law, that any jury would convict any person of – suffering a seizure on the shoulder of a residential street…after years of vicious, expensive taxpayer-funded attacks and torment way beyond mere felonies. I am fairly certain the attacks of Ben David, Ted Davis, Woody White, Wanda Copley, Tom “ABC Store” Wolfe and the corrupt Wilmington government and community of malice & greed and fake Christians.

There would be more fathers in the community and less tears, instead of a cycle with outcomes few are even trying to break in any serious way. Esp. Rev.

If I wasn’t in the Jail, in the “hole” in Central Prison or crazy house learning how to talk again when these sick acts of revenge were carried out in typical criminal gang fashion, I would’ve spoken up at least. I can promise you that. Empty words now that offer no comfort, but these stories and the photos break my heart and I wish I could assuage the grief and longing. I’m trying to advocate for reforms nationally but after losing my family, house, career, reputation, name and future amid the lies and mockery of Wilmington’s Finest, without any other voices or names to support my efforts I’m not exactly employing an effective strategy to reform systemic corruption and injustice.
To that end, if anyone ever reads this far into this manifesto (my most egregious and violent crime, excessively long emails and written documents).
In Wilmington, nationally, under elected officials of all complexions and genders, police brutality and an utterly corrupt, broken criminal justice system have been tolerated, praised, for corruption that has gone on too long, destroyed too many lives and families, and is so common and accepted in Southeastern North Carolina under District Attorney Ben David and former NC Attorney General Roy Cooper, corrupt, sadistic, and criminal - habitually, expensively (for taxpayers), sadly (for the children, parents, wives, husbands, brothers, sisters, communities) for the loved ones left grieving by District Attorney Ben David, Gov. Cooper, this corrupt Attorney General and friend, sadistic partner and criminally engaged co-conspirator The North Carolina Department of Justice and Attorney General Josh Stein work to protect people. (Learn more, file a complaint, or get tips at https://ncdoj.gov )
Please contact the US Dept. of Justice ASAP before corrupt prosecutor Kamala and "KKK Joe" Biden, the two leading advocates and criminal implementers of mass incarceration in black and brown communities, ruining the lives of non-violent kids who are salvageable, destroying families and communities in accomplishing their objective, without regard for life, civil rights or the Rule of Law in the process (and laughing and boasting it to this day!).
Please contact the FBI and national media and demand that Attorney General Josh Stein, Roy Cooper, Burr and other criminal actors killing and destroying lives, deliberately deceiving the public, manipulating evidence, victim smearing at taxpayer expense and using public resources, the power of government, to advance their corrupt goals (baseball stadium, etc...) and rape, beat, torture and murder for their sadistic pleasure, free from ANY accountability, transparency, with zero integrity, zero regard for the Rule of Law, human rights, civil rights, liberty, or Justice, or innocent lives are - in the case of Gov. Cooper, Stein, and others be investigated and public hearings held, by an out-of-state independent prosecutor, and that D.A. Ben David and local officials thus engaged in New Hanover County be placed on unpaid leave pending review of evidence provided to the US Dept. of Justice, FBI, US Attorneys Office and Federal officials years ago when the body count was much lower and many loved decent people were still with us and had not yet been executed in cold-blood by a brutal, criminal sadistic D.A. Ben David, and the incestuous New Hanover Courthouse crew of cronies, even protected pedophiles literally in bed with Ben David, lawyer pols inc. Ted Davis, Woody White and other and judicial abusers (Criner et al...)
The terror, threats and violence from law enforcement, directed by District attorney Ben David, documented for the FBI, which was in collusion and protecting D.A. Ben David along with his pal, then North Carolina AG, now Gov. Roy Cooper, would escalate to more pronounced violence, torture and worse as well as death threats and false imprisonment to keep me, an elected official, from carrying out my duties to represent the voters who put me in office in the first place.
For the past ten years I've been a relentless champion for Justice and police reform and corrections reform and criminal justice reform, while Gov. Cooper, N.C. Attorney General Stein and the NC Dept. of Justice, and their friend and corrupt, criminal prosecutor "Under Color Law" who has as I predicted in 2010 continually increased the extreme brutality and ever-increasing body count and indiscriminate selection of victims, including my friend and domestic violence victim Tressa Angermeier, who DA Ben David personally acted against, a victim of real not concocted domestic violence, beautiful, successful, intelligent, educated, and dead as a direct result of District Attorney Ben David, and Assistant D.A. Lillian Salcines-Bright, who deliberately acted against and significantly harmed an unquestioned victim of severe domestic violence, in order to protect the doctor and local opiate supplier to the political and law enforcement community in Wilmington, NC, eventually driving a petite, undisputed victim of a violent attack, to her death instead of representing the Rule of Law or the victim's rights and rehabilitation.
N.C. Attorney General Cooper, this current A.G. and Cooper Crony Josh Stein, and their friend and protégé Benjamin David didn't care about Tressa, directly violated numerous laws, in violation of their legal obligations or ethical or moral decency, a Federal crime including and not limited to prosecutorial misconduct "Under Color of Law," torture, kidnapping, death threats, violations of Due Process, numerous legal procedures and rights, directing criminal actions through third-parties and then ensuring that serious felonious and terroristic sadism and violence to prevent a duly elected official from carrying out their DUTY to represent the People, the citizens of New Hanover County, who elected me (and others) to represent them, a DUTY I took deadly serious and refused to stray from...
Even when corrupt, violent, Ben David and his political cronies began using law enforcement to threaten my life, my dog's life, with AR-15s and shotguns, safeties off, inches from my face and my golden retriever's head, and numerous equally sadistic and violent as well as extensive abuses of power and taxpayer resources pursued constantly for four years by County Manager Chris Coudriet, County Attorney Wanda Copley, the entire County Public Relations, law enforcement, various Agencies and Departments, to continuously harass, torment, abuse, rob, threaten, assault, defraud, slander and manipulate the full power of a corrupt, large Government apparatus to attack and destroy me personally, and illegally through violence and criminal actions documented and undeniable, prevent me from performing my duties dozens of times every month for years, sometimes violently and sometimes through less violent but equally criminal and destructive actions using sadistic, evil, criminal law enforcement thugs to carry out countless crimes from death threats to property crimes easily initiated since targeting, stalking, harassment, and unlawful detentions - much of these crimes have been documented, recordings and hundreds of witnesses and other admissible and indisputable evidence presented to the NC Dept. of Justice re: D.A. Ben David's and other corrupt officials' law enforcement torture squads. the kids in jail who are salvageable either...if black lives matter, get those kids out of jail and they can be saved. They are not violent or dangerous, yet, but nice kids from hard environments and broken homes stuck the cycle of mass incarceration....

Have you ever been watching a football game, in your own home, on a Sunday night, in your pajamas, heard a knock at the door opened it to find AR-15s, shotguns pointed at your face? You don't forget something like that.
https://www.starnewsonline.com/…/NC/20030…/news/605079251/ “Gary wouldn’t hurt a soul on this earth,” Mr. Scarbro said. “He was the most passive man on earth.” While the neuropathology consultation uses the word “officer,” the autopsy summary refers to “officers.” The autopsy performed Jan. 17 by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill showed Mr. Rummer died of blunt force head trauma. The report also notes a broken vertebra in Mr. Rummer’s neck.

Peyton Strickland. Say his name! 18 years old. College student. Executed inside his home by a New Hanover County Deputy firing video game style into the home killing the young "punk" who was holding a semi-automatic PLAYSTATION CONTROLLER. Then they executed his dog for fun.
That's why I was willing to get pummeled and tasered without moving my hands from straight at my sides because if you so much as flinch or try to shield your face, law enforcement will shoot you dead without remorse, without a pang of conscience or humanity. And they made it clear under the barrel of numerous AR-15s and shotguns that they would gladly kill me and were planning on it, and they meant it. They threatened to shoot my golden retriever too.
I do not support "Defunding. I do support Liberty and Justice and the human rights of all my countrymen...and anyone who experiences anything like what I was subjected too, if they live, with permanent scars and PTSD and an uncompromising mission to try to raise awareness by sharing our stories so nobody else endures the suffering caused everyday, esp. in black and brown communities but white families too, sadists rarely limit their victims...anyone vulnerable who they can abuse is .
When will enough be enough? White folks will never get it.

2020.10.22 21:28 brianberger56 FBI Collusion With Corrupt Prosecutors & Sadistic Cops is Criminal And Real Reforms Requires Treating Criminal DAs and Feds Accountable for Their Sadistic Misconduct...In N.C. and Nationally!

https://www.facebook.com/Police-Brutality-Corruption-Injustice-in-US-Criminal-Justice-System-101748924941107

https://myfox8.com/news/wilmington-officer-tosses-k9-onto-suspect/
Using a police K-9 to maul an unarmed person inside their car at a checkpoint isn't defensive, isn't a reaction to an observation perceived as potentially threatening, it's just plain sadistic. Wilmington, NC, long-known within the political-not-justice or public protection-oriented culture of the institutionally-corrupt Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for having a deep, long-standing “culture of corruption,” shared interests highly valued and actively protected by the FBI, US Department of Justice (USDOJ) and US Attorney’s Office. Thus, despite jurisdiction and claims to a mission including an enumerated interest in ensuring and enforcing laws and sacred rights including investigating and prosecuting public corruption, theft, fraud and abuses of public resources and governance by both public and private institutions & officials, protection of Constitutional, Civil and human rights, legal protections & process rights AND judicial system integrity, law enforcement oversight and prosecutions for unmitigated corruption, criminal practices so extreme, abusive and offensive to individual rights AND permitted & rewarded by local and State governments that provided, and only provided, extreme public pressure to act builds to a boiling point, in which case the aforementioned Federal agencies might reluctantly urge local leaders to placate their citizens, through gentle written non-binding agreements and nudging to alter public perceptions, a far cry from the statements and claims of the FBI, DOJ and Federal officials involving investigation, and prosecutions , of criminal misconduct by law enforcement officers as well as related criminal misconduct by prosecutors (including District Attorneys) and judicial officials acting “Under Color of Law,” the latter also rarely, reluctantly, if ever, monitored, investigated or prosecuted according to the statements of the Federal DOJ, FBI or affiliated agencies, no matter how egregious, horrific, routine and extreme the violations of even basic rights (Life, Liberty, Equal Protections under the law, Due Process, rules concerning evidence, procedures).
Even near-sacred American ideals of Justice like the lives of innocent persons and families, communities, completely ignored by sadistic, corrupt, rapists and murderers in uniform, rewarded for their brutality and dishonesty, promoted & protected by brass and peers without exception, epidemic in law enforcement culture from coast-to-coast, along with similarly criminal misconduct and corruption, dishonesty and gang-like silence if not affirmation and participation, mockery and concealment of the crimes and violations of innocent victims inside the Courthouse as on the streets, by Court officers and corrupt DAs including Wilmington’s Ben David, his twin, Jon, for faux changes of venue, and judges including those with known discriminatory behaviors, corrupt “side hustles” or even known involvement in child sexual abuse, the latter occurring in Wilmington with DA David refusing to even bring charges or pursue justice for a six year old girl molested by the husband of a sitting judge and a former Representative in the N.C. General Assembly.
b
Whether using a Police K-9 as a sadistic weapon against an unarmed, surrendering individual at a checkpoint designed with officer safety in mind, shooting an unarmed, surrendering suspect 27 TIMES or a boy executed through a window for holding a PlayStation controller during a SWAT warrant service to apprehend a privileged college student, then blasting his dog for bentertainment. The murder of a skinny non-violent alcoholic in County Jail with no plausible explanation. Executing a slimeball ex-Sheriff in his boxer shorts through torture-by-Tazing until his heart exploded.
Similarly, placing multiple loaded AR-15s and shotguns to the head of an elected official and the elected representative’s golden retriever, targeting cars with that official’s bumper sticker, and four years of death threats, terrorism, kidnapping, civil and human rights violations, unlawful theft of property, violations of privacy, and the most basic rights and protections enshrined in the Laws, including and largely pursued in order to prevent a duly elected official from carrying out their sworn duties and serve their constituents, deliberate public deception to harm and undermine the hated anti-corruption, principled rather than profiteering loner in local political decision-making, harassment to obstruct, delay and seek any cause whatsoever to detain and delay the necessary movements of an official in carrying out their duties, and engaging in a deliberate campaign involving Mr. David’s active direction and participation in commission of the crimes and his own personal and staff-delegated criminal prosecutorial misconduct and additional criminal defecation on Justice, Liberty and human decency.
These are not isolated incidents rather a sample plate of the hundreds if not thousands of sadistic, criminal acts against primarily non-threatening, mostly law-abiding, non-violent and unarmed persons or a vulnerable, inebriated, unconscious, homeless or mentally ill easy victim for boxing practice or habitual sexual predation of those vulnerable to consequence-free exploitation and brutalization by bullies who get-off on violence and know that in these and EVERY SINGLE incident of criminal misconduct and rape, murder, terrorism, dehumanization, exploitation, and too many incidents by far too many uniformed thugs engaged in felonious habitual abuse by law enforcement officers (LEOs), assisted by their “no whistleblowers” peers and praise of the Sheriff and brass in New Hanover County, NC.
District Attorney Ben David, Wilmington Police Chief Evangelous, who relayed one incident involving the shooting death of an unarmed black man on PCP and rumors of violent protests, the desire of his cops to use live military anti-personnel grenades against civilians. Fortunately, the victim’s mother called for peace and calm and no further casualties or escalation occurred.
Along with the Sheriff, DA David and their pals in the City and County governments, FBI Wilmington Bureau, the US Attorney for the District, or now Gov. Roy Cooper’s NC State Bureau of Investigation, corrupt, incompetent and presumably as with AG Josh Stein close friends with Benjamin David and the corrupt powers long-entrenched (often going back to 1898, and the only violent Coup D’-Etat on American soil in U.S. history when the blood of freed, talented Negroes and “carpetbagging Yankee” Republicans turned the Cape Fear River red and many others were forced to flee forever or be subjected to lynching). Some habits die hard. That habit is still practiced. Probably rarely, but really, and with the mockery of the public and protection of the US DOJ, Civil Rights Division, FBI, SBI and post-ethics media fiction writers.
Presumably, those threats are rare. Accountability for criminal misconduct under DA David and his Assistant DA’s is even rarer. In none of these or any other incidents, not one, did David pursue justice through even his own corrupt, choreographed, no justice Courthouse. That’s right, NOT ONCE, NEVER, in these and too many equally if not more sadistic and cold-blooded, murderous, life-ruining, family-destroying, anti-American and anti-community and inhumane LEO crimes that would appall any Judeo-Christian community or person with a civilized related value system. Sadly, these public attributes are severely lacking in the larger community and completely non-existent in political and law enforcement circles.
President Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder and his swamp rat legion of the self-serving who continue to infest the Bureau and Federal government agencies or at least the FBI and US DOJ were perfectly fine with ANY and ALL criminal misconduct, even aiding and colluding in many crimes and injustices, including assisting, though not to the extent sought by Mr. David through clearly dishonest and evil attempts to elevate his unlawful and dishonorable perversion of Justice and disdain for the Rule of Law, human and civil rights, the US Constitution and the ideals of American justice and jurisprudence, though Federal officials absolutely aided and colluded in criminal acts including murder, rapes, cover-ups of LEO crimes, torture, false imprisonment, evidence tampering, even the undermining of democracy itself by acts of terrorism & abuse, torture, violent physical attacks, obstruction & attempted intimidation and bribery to prevent an elected official from representing the public thus depriving The People of their representative in THEIR government.
I will never be able to walk into a police station again without bringing witnesses even to report a crime committed against me.
I suspect that rational evidence-based distrust and knowledge of the undeniable, though oft-excused, epidemic institutional and cultural corruption that certainly is more systemic and beyond internal reform, than some rare “bad apple” exception or “Criminal profiling” or “racial profiling,” as the ages (young black children, old white grandmas, etc…etc..), races, genders, cultures, and other “identifiers” demonstrates, though the primary factor for being victimized by criminal cops is unquestionably economic and not racial, we all know black and brown folks are targeted and victimized at greater rates per capita than other demographics, though most unarmed victims of police shootings are Caucasians. Perps are LEOs of all shapes and stripes, and I can tell you in four years the three white and one black Commissioner I served beside mentioned the word “Justice” zero times, but real estate deals hundreds of times, the latter dominated the concerns of those elected officials, business opportunities for themselves and their business associates.
In Cities like, hypothetically, Denver, the African-American Mayor and his mentor, current Senate candidate, former Governor, and Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper sold seats on the “Citizen Oversight Board” purposed to add some oversight to excessive law enforcement brutality and criminal misconduct.
In fifteen years, that Board with its seat-purchasers, along with the complicit role of the ACLU and NAACP in furthering rather than mitigating violence, murders and brutality against innocent civilians and suspected criminals, much like the ACLU of NC and NAACP in NC supported and NEVER opposed these excessive, escalatory violence and murder permitting Standard Operating Procedures, talent acquisition and training, and the various other underlying causes of law enforcement criminality that is far more violent, dangerous and routine than the incarcerated, who are less sadistic and violent than law enforcement –
--most of the incarcerated are non-violent, salvageable but opportunity and father-less black kids suffering the consequences of “KKK Joe” Biden’s proudest and only accomplishment, besides fighting with the Klan to kill Civil Rights legislation, his “Biden Crime Bill” that greatly escalated mass incarceration of black youths, many young fathers, the ridiculous 100X punishment for their crack while Biden’s daughter is a well-known cocaine-fiend in that crime family, and the work of corrupt DAs like Ben David, Kamala Harris and the bastard in Texas who lied for and protected the fat pig who murdered Sandra Bland (though no white folks probably have a clue who Sandra is or what I’m referencing).
Any, well, most any, decent, empathetic person harassed, beaten, tortured, defamed through culturally-encouraged dishonesty and public deceit, in a field with zero-transparency, no integrity and the standard practice of abuse, murder followed by lies and victim smearing after a gang-beating, tazering, stomping, purely malicious brutalization, borne from the injustice and inhumanity of those who are drawn to the underpaid, under-trained, overly-tasked, low-intelligence and lower virtue-oriented outmoded and major reform requiring job tormented and permanently harmed by police brutality and the broken criminal justice system, I have been devoted ever since to sharing my story (and sounding absolutely crazy, certifiable, admittedly…criminal justice reform is pretty much the only thing I’ve ever used Twitter for and primarily all I post about on FB…like a crazy…albeit it not anti-police or a “de-funder” or violent radical) in the hope that nobody else will ever experience what I experienced, having to learn how to talk again, literally, from the severity of the damage and head trauma w/permanent neurological damage from being beat down and tortured despite committing no crime, breaking no law, that any jury would convict any person of – suffering a seizure on the shoulder of a residential street…after years of vicious, expensive taxpayer-funded attacks and torment way beyond mere felonies. I am fairly certain the attacks of Ben David, Ted Davis, Woody White, Wanda Copley, Tom “ABC Store” Wolfe and the corrupt Wilmington government and community of malice & greed and fake Christians.

How long will these abuses and the crimes of those responsible, esp. Ted Davis, Sandra Criner, Wanda Copley, Woody White, Jonathan Barfield, Chris Coudriet, Dennis Ihnat, Andre Mallette, Bruce Shell and the most sadistic, criminal, evil thug in a County run by criminals, Ben David and his friends and criminal accomplices Roy Cooper, Josh Stein and Eric Holder, and their totally dishonest, narcissistic, story inventors with the morals of Joesph Goebbels who comprise the unethical media in Wilmington, with their total lack of empathy, honesty or integrity, and make up stories rather than reporting on say, all the secret lawsuits for County and City law enforcement brutality secretly settled every month and of interest to nobody except me in recent decades or real reform would’ve occurred already in New Hanover County. There would be more fathers in the community and less tears, instead of a cycle with outcomes few are even trying to break in any serious way. Esp. Rev. Barfield, who has long run training and discipline in the Sheriff’s Office and used eager, unethical criminals like Coudriet and Copley and Ihnat to enrich himself and say “F” everyone else in those closed-door meetings before the choreographed, scripted public meetings.

If I wasn’t in the Jail, in the “hole” in Central Prison or crazy house learning how to talk again when these sick acts of revenge were carried out in typical criminal gang fashion, I would’ve spoken up at least. I can promise you that. Empty words now that offer no comfort, but these stories and the photos break my heart and I wish I could assuage the grief and longing. I’m trying to advocate for reforms nationally but after losing my family, house, career, reputation, name and future amid the lies and mockery of Wilmington’s Finest, without any other voices or names to support my efforts I’m not exactly employing an effective strategy to reform systemic corruption and injustice.

ORANGE COUNTY
"When “Housewives” collide.
“Real Housewives of New York” star Barbara Kavovit and the “Real Housewives of Orange County’s” Braunwyn Windham-Burke spent time palling around together in the Hamptons this week.
Windham-Burke, 42, stayed at Kavovit’s home on Tuesday, after celebrating a friend’s birthday in the city on Monday and participating in the Women’s March in Washington, DC on Saturday, per the mom-of-seven’s social media accounts.
An insider told Page Six on Wednesday that Windham-Burke arrived via Blade helicopter.
The insider said that the women — who met at BravoCon in November 2019 — spent time lounging by Kavovit’s pool.
They also filmed Windham-Burke’s “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” segment that will air Wednesday.
It seems they also enjoyed the local scenery, as Windham-Burke shared a snap surrounded by pumpkins.
The women went out to Zero Bond in Manhattan for mocktails to celebrate as well. As “RHOC” fans know, Windham-Burke came out as an alcoholic during the Season 15 premiere.
Unfortunately, their fun time couldn’t continue forever, as Kavovit and Windham-Burke drove back into the city on Tuesday.
The two have remained friends, with Kavovit even attending Windham-Burke’s birthday party in her native Orange County."
"In the video , the mom of three shows off her generously sized kitchen island. "It's really nice for me and the kids because a lot of times they just sit up at the barstools and we cook together a lot," she says. "When you cook with kids, you definitely need space to do it. So that is a great feature of this house." She adds: "I also have a lot of storage, which is really good. For it being not such a large home, it actually was designed really well."
Gina also shows the living room, which has multiple purposes. "We kind of made it a half living room, half office," she says. Along with an L-shaped desk where she and Travis catch up on work, the room has a huge, "really comfortable" couch where the whole gang can lounge and relax.
Upstairs, the six kiddos sleep in two rooms, which each have bunk beds that can sleep three. (The kids even got to pick out their own bedding.) In the bedroom that Gina and Travis share, there's decor that the couple picked out together. "I think we actually make a really good team," Gina says. "We tried to make it comfortable. And I obviously wanted it to be cute and stylish, but I didn't want it to be ultra feminine. So, I tried to balance the feminine and masculinity and throw Trav a bone there."
The house also looks directly onto the school where Gina's kids go. "I can actually be in my bedroom and I can look out and see my kids running around on the field at recess at the school, and I can hear, also, the school bells," she says. "I really do love it here so much. It's a great home, great area, I have great neighbors."
BEVERLY HILLS
"The Real's Garcelle Beauvais is adding "author" to her list of current jobs. The actress, model, podcast host, reality star, and talk show host is set to write a memoir called Finding My G-Spot, according to Publishers' Marketplace.
The industry database described the book as "a memoir about falling back in love with yourself, with never-before-heard stories and advice on relationships, parenting, and career."
No news yet on a release date, but the book has been acquired by HarperCollins' Amistad Press."
BRAVO
"Following the roundtable discussion on race relations in the country today, Race in America: A Movement Not a Moment, in August, Bravo will be continuing the conversation with the upcoming special Race in America: Our Vote Counts airing Sunday, November 1 at 10/9c.
In this 90-minute special, which will also be simulcast on E!, 10 celebs from across the NBC broadcast and cable entertainment networks will come together to discuss the power of the Black vote on both a local and national level. Host Nina Parker will return to the roundtable, which will feature panelists Gizelle Bryant from The Real Housewives of Potomac, Dr. Britten Cole from Married to Medicine Los Angeles, Zuri Hall from Access Hollywood, Dr. Heavenly Kimes from Married to Medicine, Dr. Damon Kimes from Married to Medicine, Tamica Lee from Southern Charm New Orleans, Jon Moody from Southern Charm New Orleans, Wendy Osefo from RHOP, Barry Smith from Southern Charm New Orleans, and Justin Sylvester from E! News.
With the election of a lifetime just weeks away, the roundtable will have an open dialogue on the importance of voting, the changes a new generation can make with their vote, and the effect the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic could have on people going to the polls. The special will also feature an emotional conversation on Black people's voting experience and how it has affected them more than any other race in the country.
The special is produced for Bravo by Lauren Grace Media with Leslie D. Farrell and Dorothy Toran serving as executive producers. Kandi Burruss is also an executive producer."
"Now it can always be “Turtle Time” for Bravo fans.
Bravo teamed up with Nocking Point Wines to launch their first-ever line of wine in conjunction with their newest series, “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.”
“The Real Housewives Wines” includes white wine, red wine and a rosé option, and are available to purchase online.
“We are excited to partner with Nocking Point for this special limited edition collaboration that will allow Bravo superfans to immerse themselves in the Bravo universe, engaging with us both on-screen and off,” Maria Laino DeLuca, the senior vice president of consumer and social marketing for Bravo, said in a press release on Wednesday.
“This pairing celebrates the series and offers an escape in a year when we may not be able to engage with each other face-to-face,” she added."
MIAMI
"Larsa Pippen is the latest celebrity victim of a burglary.
The former “Real Housewives of Miami” star, 46, revealed on her Instagram Story Tuesday that not only was her Los Angeles home hit by thieves Monday night but she’s also dealing with an alleged stalker.
“Could 2020 get any crazier? A stalker in L.A. forced me to go to Miami only then to find out my house in L.A. got robbed. Let’s pray for 2021,” she wrote.
The thieves made off with “many personal and high-valued items,” according to The Blast. They allegedly bypassed her house’s alarm system by disabling the electricity “to the whole street.”
No one was home at the time of the burglary, and Pippen, who is NBA legend Scottie Pippen’s ex, remains in Florida.
Neither the LAPD nor a rep for Pippen immediately returned Page Six’s request for comment."

2020.10.20 14:46 rusticgorilla Lost in the Sauce: Team Trump attempts to smear Biden using possible Russian disinformation

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:

October surprise

Trump and allies are pushing an unverified and highly suspicious narrative to smear Joe Biden by trying to tie him to his son Hunter Biden’s work in Ukraine. Last week, the New York Post published emails and photos allegedly from a laptop belonging to Hunter - but without any proof of provenance.

What we know:

The NYP story: Hunter Biden (who lives in Los Angeles) dropped off multiple laptops at a computer repair shop in Delaware in April 2019 and disappeared. The invoice he allegedly signed was for the low price of $85. The repair shop owner recovers and reads Hunter’s private emails, a few of which mention a possible meeting with his dad, and is so alarmed that he contacts the FBI in November 2019. Before handing the laptops over, though, the repair shop owner copies the contents. Once he realizes the FBI is not doing anything with them, he contacts Giuliani’s lawyer (sometime in early 2020) and hands over the contents of the drives. Giuliani and/or his lawyer then sits on the material for months, finally deciding to release them (with some prompting of Steve Bannon) three weeks before the election.
  • The NYP story was “mostly” written by longtime-NYP reporter Bruce Golding, but he “did not allow his byline to be used because he had concerns over the article’s credibility.” Instead, the lead reporter credited is Emma-Jo Morris, a former producer of Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News (owned by Rupert Murdoch, just like the NYP). Between Wednesday and Sunday, the NYP published more than 50 separate stories and columns tagged “Hunter Biden.”
What the docs published by NYP said: An email dated April 17, 2015, suggests Hunter Biden arranged for a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm to meet with the then-vice president when he was in charge of U.S. policy toward Ukraine. There is no proof the email is authentic, nor is there proof that such a meeting occurred or that “Hunter” even replied to it.
What experts say: WaPo journalist David Ignatius reports that an Eastern European expert in digital forensics who has examined some of the Ukrainian documents leaked to the New York Post said he “found anomalies — such as American-style capitalization of the names of ministries — that suggest fakery.” Thomas Rid, author of “Active Measures,” told WaPo: “Usually when emails are leaked, what investigators look for is the actual email file, and we don’t have that here.” When an email is presented without the metadata, he said, “then you become suspicious.”
Russian op: U.S. intelligence agencies warned the White House last year that Giuliani was the target of an influence operation by Russian intelligence. The intelligence raised concerns that Giuliani was being used to feed Russian misinformation to the president, leading national security adviser Robert O’Brien to caution Trump in a private conversation that any information Giuliani brought back from Ukraine should be considered contaminated by Russia. Trump had “shrugged his shoulders” at O’Brien’s warning, the former official said, and dismissed concern about his lawyer’s activities by saying, “That’s Rudy.”
  • Former National Security Adviser John Bolton repeatedly told his staff to stay out of discussions with Giuliani due to warnings he received from intelligence officials about Trump’s lawyer spreading foreign disinformation. As early as Spring 2019 Giuliani was seen as a tool of Russian intelligence.
  • A reminder that when Giuliani came to Kyiv in December he not only met Andriy Derkach, identified and sanctioned by the US as a Russian agent, he also flew out of Ukraine on a private jet connected to some shady oligarchs. When asked about meeting with Derkach, a Russian agent, Giuliani said: “The chance that Derkach is a Russian spy is no better than 50/50.” Apparently that’s a low enough risk for Rudy…
Trump knew: A source told the Daily Beast that Trump “knew [in recent weeks] that Rudy had something big coming on the Biden family...I remember hearing…something about files, and corruption, and something about sex and drugs…It was evident that the president was interested and wanted it done before the election.” Giuliani further confirmed that Trump knew about the planned leak/smear and approved of it: “Sure, sure. The president knows all about this,” Giuliani said, adding that he had briefed Trump on the “general” parameters of the files.
Chinese connection: Social media accounts connected to billionaire Chinese dissident Guo Wengui began posting about the laptop story weeks before the NYP story was published. You may recall that when Steve Bannon was arrested for fraud, he was aboard Guo’s yacht. Just days before the NYP published the alleged laptop emails, photos of Rudy Giuliani and Guo showed up on Twitter. If taken the same day as posted, that would mean he was with Guo when he reportedly gave NYP the alleged Biden materials.

Republican corruption

Oracle founder Larry Ellison donated $250,000 to a political action committee supporting Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) the same day his company was declared the first official U.S. partner for TikTok. Graham was reportedly pivotal in arranging the deal, saying he personally called Trump to advocate for the sale of TikTok to a U.S. business in lieu of a total ban. “If TikTok is saved, you can thank me,” he said.
U.S. Rep. Roger Williams, a Central Texas Republican and member of the House Financial Services Committee, used his powerful post in Congress to try to help a top donor in his dealings with a publicly traded bank, court records show. Williams allegedly used&utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=referral) his position on the powerful House committee to try to force the CEO of UMB Bank into meeting with oil field investor Gary Martin of Marble Falls.
Attorney Kyle Hirsch testified under oath that Williams’ intervention exerted inappropriate pressure on UMB and that unless the CEO agreed to meet with his donor there could be problems for the bank in Congress. “The Congressman indicated that his role on the Financial Services Committee included legislation that was coming down the pike and that he was urging the bank to meet with his constituent or there would be adverse consequences as it relates to his role on the Financial Services Committee,” Hirsch said, according to his deposition in the case.
For at least seven years, GOP Rep. Jim Hagedorn (MN-1) appears to have enjoyed rent-free use of a campaign office supplied by a political donor. “It sounds like something that could potentially be a fairly serious violation of campaign finance law and the ethics rules,” said Bryson Morgan, a former investigative counsel at the Office of Congressional Ethics.
Sen. Lindsey Graham used an on-camera interview after the Supreme Court confirmation hearings Wednesday to solicit contributions for his reelection campaign, a move that a congressional legal expert said is a clear violation of Senate ethics rules. Senate ethics rules prohibit members from soliciting campaign contributions in any federal building.
“I don’t know how much it affected fundraising today, but if you want to help me close the gap — LindseyGraham.com — a little bit goes a long way,” said Graham, R-S.C, who is locked in a highly competitive race against well-funded Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison.
Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) has used her office’s taxpayer-funded resources to send out a robocall touting a key campaign issue—her work on COVID-19 policy—to Arizonans. Normally, mass official communication with constituents so close to an election would be prohibited. But a waiver approved by the Senate Rules Committee in March has made it permissible—if, and only if, the communication is for the purposes of “providing updated information about the pandemic, and providing information about the federal government's response.”
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) is spending $819,000 of taxpayer money on a Fox News ad promoting her state as a “place to safely explore” despite the pandemic. South Dakota currently has the highest positivity rate in the nation (36%) and the second-highest new cases per day (753 per million people), right behind North Dakota. Noem has also spent $130,000 to build a studio in the basement of the Capitol, which she has used frequently for Fox News appearances.

Court cases

The DC Circuit Court of Appeals will rehear the House’s case to enforce a subpoena for former White House counsel Donald McGahn. A three-judge panel earlier ruled 2-1 that the House Judiciary Committee could not enforce the subpoena absent a law explicitly giving it the authority to do so. The majority in the previous panel was made up of now-retired Judge Thomas Griffith, a W. Bush appointee (who made way for McConnell protege Justin Walker on the court), and Judge Karen Henderson, a H.W. Bush appointee. Judge Judith Rogers, a Clinton appointee, dissented.
  • NOTE: The D.C. Circuit has essentially allowed the White House to run out the clock. The subpoena to McGahn was first issued in April 2019. In taking up the case, the full court asked the parties to address “whether the case would become moot when the Committee’s subpoena expires upon the conclusion of the 116th Congress.” Oral arguments are not scheduled until February 2021.
  • If you’re confused about why the D.C. Circuit is hearing the McGahn case again, here is the reason: The first time the court ruled on the McGahn subpoena was in August, when the full bench determined the House has standing to sue the executive branch to enforce subpoenas. This time, the issue is “cause of action,” meaning whether House Democrats have legal ground to take the subpoena issue to court.
The Supreme Court refused to hear a case brought by Democratic lawmakers against President Trump over his private businesses accepting payments from foreign governments. In declining to revive the case, the justices let stand a decision by a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit to dismiss the lawsuit - a win for Trump. The panel was made up of Judge Thomas Griffith (W. Bush appointee), Karen Henderson (H.W. Bush appointee), and David Tatel (Clinton appointee). All three unanimously ruled that the individual members did not have legal standing to take the president to court.
“Our conclusion is straightforward because the Members — 29 Senators and 186 Members of the House of Representatives — do not constitute a majority of either body and are, therefore, powerless to approve or deny the President’s acceptance of foreign emoluments,” the [earlier three-judge panel] ruled.
  • Note, there are still two other pending cases before the Court: Trump v. CREW and Trump v. Maryland & D.C.
Trump filed an emergency request with the Supreme Court to block the release of his tax returns. Last week, a federal appeals court ruled Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance can enforce a subpoena for Mr. Trump's business records and tax returns.
SCOTUS cases coming up: On Nov. 30, SCOTUS will hear arguments to determine whether the Trump administration can exclude unauthorized immigrants from the 2020 census count. Next year, SCOTUS will take up two challenges to Trump’s immigration policies: his diversion of military funds to pay for construction of the southern border wall, and a policy that has required tens of thousands of asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while their claims are processed.
  • Three Muslim men who said they were placed for years on a “no-fly” list because they refused to become FBI informants told the Supreme Court on Tuesday that they should be able to sue the agents for targeting them because of their religion.
A federal judge Sunday struck down a Trump administration rule that could have stripped food stamps from nearly 700,000 people. Chief Judge Beryl Howell (Obama appointee) of the D.C. District Court wrote: "The final rule at issue in this litigation radically and abruptly alters decades of regulatory practice, leaving states scrambling and exponentially increasing food insecurity for tens of thousands of Americans.”

Miscellaneous

Russia: The United States on Monday unsealed criminal charges against six Russian intelligence officers in connection with some of the world’s most damaging cyberattacks, including disruption of Ukraine’s power grid and the release of a mock ransomware virus that infected computers globally and caused billions of dollars in damage.
DOJ: Attorney General Bill Barr’s “unmasking” probe has quietly ended with no prosecutions or findings of wrongdoing. The investigation, conducted by U.S. Attorney John Bash, was focused on whether Obama-era officials improperly requested the identities of individuals whose names were redacted in intelligence documents.
DOJ: Phillip Halpern, a 36-year veteran of the Justice Department, accused AG Barr of abusing his power to sway the election for President Trump and said he was quitting. He said he would have quit earlier but stayed on because he worried that the department under Mr. Barr would have interfered in his prosecution of former Representative Duncan D. Hunter, Republican of California, who pleaded guilty in December to conspiracy to steal campaign funds.
Trump campaign: A newly published trove of Cambridge Analytica emails and other documents from the 2016 election demonstrate how the data firm operated as a tool for a billionaire family to unlawfully influence U.S. politics and help elect President Trump. It includes a never-before-published 27-page post-election report from February 2017 shows that Cambridge Analytica claimed credit for creating, producing, and distributing ads for the Trump campaign, which included “5,000+ ad campaigns” on behalf of Trump that generated “1.5 billion impressions.”
Trump campaign: A Chinese national whose Instagram page features pictures of him wearing a VIP pass at a 2018 rally for President Donald Trump, is now on U.S. soil after being charged with conspiring to distribute cocaine and laundering the illicit funds, according to court documents filed earlier this week.
Trump campaign: For a fourth time, pro-Trump super PAC America First Action used stock footage from Russia and Belarus in a major ad buy that’s airing in three swing states.
HHS: The health department’s top lawyer is warning in an internal memo that President Donald Trump's plan to give seniors $200 discount cards to buy prescription drugs could violate election law. The lawyer’s objection, coupled with his advice to seek approval from the Department of Justice, is a significant blow to Trump’s hope to promote the hastily devised plan before Election Day.
Trump money: The State Department says it has about 450 pages of records showing government spending at President Trump’s properties. But this week, it signaled that it plans to release only two of those pages before the November election. The State Department pays for hotel rooms and other expenses when foreign leaders visit Trump properties, and when federal employees, such as Secret Service agents, follow Trump and his family to the president’s overseas clubs.
Trump: Trump was receiving one of his first codeword classified briefings on Afghanistan, at his Bedminster club, when he suddenly got bored and ordered milkshakes. The incident became legendary inside the CIA, where like at other agencies, morale has slumped.
Voting: A deadlocked Supreme Court on Monday let stand a lower-court ruling that requires Pennsylvania election officials to count absentee ballots received within three days after Election Day, Nov. 3, even if they are not postmarked. Four justices – Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh – indicated that they would have granted the Republicans’ request.
  • While a temporary win for voting rights, the 4-4 decision is worrying because once Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed, there will likely be five votes in favor of a radical, anti-democratic theory that would stop state Supreme Courts from enforcing state election laws to protect the right to vote. This Twitter thread goes into more detail.
Immigration: A total of 172 immigrants were arrested across six sanctuary cities within a six-day span, according to the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The arrests were made in Baltimore, Denver, New York, Philadelphia, Seattle, and Washington, DC, between October 3-9.

2020.10.20 02:30 Gaydude1995 Moving back to the U.S. Need some help!

Hi guys,
So I just finished my degree and am planning on moving back to the U.S. next year. I realize that there's a lot of instability right now going on, but I feel like I need to do this. I just graduated with my degree in history and will be applying for jobs. I don't know where to relocate to yet, but I'll probably be living with my parents for a month while I get my stuff sorted. I could really use some help. I have some ideas of where I would like to live and I know where I don't want to live. I have narrowed it down to the following:
  1. Chicago: I have only been in the airport, but this city intrigues me. It scores quite highly on the list. It's quite cold, it's close to beautiful nature (if you're willing to drive to Minnesota), it snows, it's relatively affordable, and the people have a reputation for being more family friendly and relaxed. The only downside is that it isn't close to any skiing and the Chicago area is as flat as a pancake.
  2. Salt Lake City: What attracts me to SLC is the mountains, the skiing, and the beautiful nature in general. The only downside is that the cost of living is creeping up and I'm concerned that it's not cold enough for me.
  3. Boston: I have been here before and would like to stay a little longer. What really attracts me are the snowy and cold winters and the beauty of the city in general. It's also close to Canada and New York and has skiing opportunities nearby. It's also a very educated city. The only downside is that it's pretty expensive and the people can come across as cold.
  4. Washington DC: I have been here a couple times and I like it a lot. The only downside is the high cost of living and the lack of cold weathesnow and skiing opportunities. The focus on career is good as well as bad. I like it to be a little more relaxed, although I would like a partner that is career focused.
  5. Denver: I have been here, but was a little too young to remember everything. What attracts me is the skiing and recreational opportunities. A big downside is the cost of living, which I've heard is high. Also I'm concerned that the weather might not be cold enough. The snowfall is pretty decent, though, so it has that going for it as well.
Here are the things that are most important:
- Skiing: I really want to be near somewhere with skiing opportunities.
- Weather: I have been living in western europe for a couple years now and the winters aren't cold enough and don't have nearly enough snow for me. I'd like somewhere with a lot more snow and a lot colder. Somewhere where the average temperature during winter is at least freezing 33f.
- Affordability: I'd like a city that is relatively affordable. I'd probably be making $40,000 at my first job, so I don't think I'd be able to live in SF or NYC. But I'd probably with a couple of roommates be able to pull off Chicago or some other big city.
- Educated: I'd like to live in an educated city where people value education.
- Dating: All of these cities are pretty good for gay men, but I think Chicago takes the cake simply due to its sheer size.
Any and all recommendations would be appreciated and helpful. Look forward to what you guys think.

2020.10.19 23:19 Ainsoph777 Jesuit trained Malcolm Wilson was Nelson Rockefeller's political Kingmaker

Jesuit trained Malcolm Wilson was Nelson Rockefeller's political Kingmaker
" Proud of his Fordham ties and degrees, Mr. Wilson has served the University as one of the first 15-non-Jesuits to be elected to the Board of Trustees in 1969 as well as supporting alumni fund efforts for the school. At Fordham Prep, he is known as the man who took on the chairmanship of the school's building fund campaign that enabled them to move from a century-old building to a modern complex on the Bronx campus. " https://www.fordhamprep.org/page.cfm?p=4868
An occulted fact is that Malcolm Wilson, who was essentially a lay Jesuit (trained by Jesuits for over 15 years at Fordham prep and Fordham university)--was the political kingmaker of Nelson Rockefeller. This is admitted however by none other than the New York Times. Wilson, the papal crusader would serve as the lieutenant governor of New York while Nelson Rockefeller was governor, later becoming governor of New York himself. This Jesuit tag-team was honored by the Roman Archbishop of New York, Cardinal Francis Spellman at Jesuit Fordham university for crusading to get state tax-payer funds to finance the Roman Catholic schools! Quoting from the Pittsburgh Catholic, February 9th 1961, we read : https://thecatholicnewsarchive.org/?a=d&d=TPC19610209-01.1.1&srpos=10&e=-------en-20--1--txt-txIN-Malcolm+wilson+nelson------ "Francis Cardinal Spellman, Archbishop of New York, has hailed Gov. Nelson Rockefeller's proposal to the state legislature to provide aid to all students attending church-related and other private colleges and universities in the state. The cardinal lauded the controversial plan before 1,100 persons gathered here for an alumni dinner marking the golden anniversary of his graduation from Fordham University(Jesuit) . Introduced to the group by New York Lieutenant Gov. Malcolm Wilson, also a Fordham alumnus, he prefaced his prepared speech by saying, " I also thank Lieutenant Governor Wilson for siding with Governor Rockefeller to have justice for every college in the State of New York.""
This close relationship between Jesuit trained Malcom Wilson and Nelson Rockefeller is surely why a Roman Catholic priest, Teddy "Father SR-71" Hesburgh became the chairman of the Rockefeller foundation in 1977!
A write up done by New York Magazine ,18 Oct 1971 on Jesuit trained Malcolm Wilson.

Here are over 20 pages of catholic news archives on the lay Jesuit Malcolm Wilson! : https://thecatholicnewsarchive.org/?a=q&r=1&results=1&e=-------en-20--41--txt-txIN-Malcolm+wilson------

Now quoting from Malcom Wilson's obituary in the New York Times--we see that he coached Nelson Rockefeller into politics.
"In 1958, he threw in his lot with Rockefeller, scion of the nations wealthiest family, who had never run for office. Mr. Wilson became a political tour guide of sorts , driving Mr. Rockefeller about the state to introduce him to local chieftains eager for a fresh candidate. Quietly and just the two of them, they made the rounds in Mr. Wilson's own car in order not to flaunt the novice's immense wealth. Mr. Wilson sold his man, who then insisted that Mr. Wilson be chosen as his running mate.... Aside from his mastery of the state budget, Mr. Wilson had a hand in shaping the Governor's priorities. It was he who persuaded Mr. Rockefeller to press for federal revenue sharing to help states that were in financial straits, an idea Mr. Rockefeller successfully pushed after Mr. Nixon won the White House in 1968. " https://www.nytimes.com/2000/03/14/nyregion/former-gov-malcolm-wilson-86-is-dead.html

Malcolm Wilson also while attending Jesuit Fordham, was a member of the debating team, and he would join the board of trustees at Jesuit Fordham university. Jesuit trained Governor Malcolm Wilson was also regular attendee at the Manresa Jesuit retreat house in New York City.
" For more than a century, rich and poor Catholics alike came to Mount Manresa, a Jesuit retreat center on Staten Island a mile from the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. From bricklayers to lawyers, from the poet Joyce Kilmer to Malcolm Wilson, the former New York governor, they stepped out of the workaday world and entered a silent space of prayer and meditation." https://archive.org/details/TryingToSaveAQuietPlaceOnStatenIslandTheNewYorkTimes

Malcolm Wilson was also a member of the board of directors at the Catholic intelligence agency Pro Deo subsidiary The American Council for the International Promotion of Democracy Under God . This is seen in a batch of declassified documents I have found on Pro Deo : https://archive.org/details/IlovepdfMerged10/page/n11

Additional connections from Malcom Wilson to Jesuit Fordham University include being honored by the Jesuit Fordham College Alumni Association on January 27th 1959, speaking at the1974 Commencement ceremony at Jesuit Fordham and Wilson regularly wrote in the Jesuit Fordham law journal.

Here is a photo of Jesuit trained at Georgetown Galo Plaza, President Of Ecuador(1948-1952) , Secretary General of the OAS (1968-1975) with Nelson Rockefeller : https://www.trumanlibrary.org/photographs/view.php?id=69013
Pan American Society dinner at the Waldorf Astoria, New York City. President Galo Plaza (right) warmly greets Nelson Rockefeller (left). From the Department of State Album: \"Visit of His Excellency, Galo Plaza, President of Ecuador to the United States of American, June 20 to 29, 1951\"
Here is a quick background on Galo Plaza :
" Galo Plaza seemed perfect for restoring the OAS’s internal stability and improving the organization’s image. Rockefeller circles likened him to an “international troubleshooter.” Loyal to his roots as a major Ecuadorian landowner, lawyer for the United Fruit Company, and former student at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service (Jesuit), Galo Plaza could be counted on to maintain order within the organization while ensuring OAS support for CIA subversion of leftist-minded governments, not only in Ecuador (where the Velasco and Arosemena governments had both fallen to CIA-backed coups), but throughout Latin America. He had also endorsed the efforts of Nelson’s brother, John 3rd, to introduce birth control among Ecuador’s Indians through the Agency for International Development, a major new policy initiative. In addition, Galo Plaza could ensure the hemisphere wide transfer of rural development programs from Rockefeller's American International Association for Economic and Social Development (AIA) to the OAS. Most important, all this would give Rockefeller, through his influence on Galo Plaza, added weight not only in the OAS, but also in any White House deliberation over using the OAS "- Thy Will Be Done : The Conquest Of The Amazon, Nelson Rockefeller And Evangelism In The Age Of Oil ,Gerard Colby, Charlotte Dennett, pg. 602 https://archive.org/details/GerardColbyCharlotteDennettThyWillBeDoneTheConquestOfTheAmazonNelsonRockefellerA

A Papist (Malcolm Wilson)bringing Nelson Rockefeller into the political world shouldn't be too surprising....Author Matthew Josephson brings up how Standard Oil's centralized hierarchy resembled that of the Catholic Church! : "As a member of the board of directors of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad, William Rockefeller had long ago struck up a warm friendship with James Stillman, the president of the National City Bank. The latter, stirred at all he learned of the efficiency of the Standard Oil management, and of its hierarchic and centralized government, so much like that of the Roman Catholic Church, modeled his own bank after it. " Matthew Josephson, The Robber Barons : The Great American Capitalists, pg 286 : http://www.eindtijdinbeeld.nl/EiB-Bibliotheek/Boeken/The_Robber_Barons_-_The_Great_American_Capitalists_1861-1901__1934_.pdf

It should be remembered too that John D. Rockefeller Sr. was golfing with Catholic Priest Father J.P. Lennon when the double Jesuit trained Chief Justice Edward Douglass White "broke up" Standard Oil, allowing it to become even bigger! : https://www.reddit.com/Jesuitworldordecomments/d8vzkl/john_d_rockefeller_sr_was_golfing_with_catholic/

No wonder then a that a Roman Catholic priest Theodore Hesburgh was made the chairman of the Rockefeller foundation! Quoting from the New York Times : https://www.nytimes.com/1977/01/15/archives/hesburgh-named-rockefeller-foundation-chairman.html
" The Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, president of the University of Notre Dame, was elected chairman of the Rockefeller Foundation yesterday. He replaces Cyrus R. Vance, who resigned from the foundation board when he was named Secretary of State.At a meeting of the foundation's trustees in New York City yesterday, a replacement was also chosen for another who is to be a member of the Carter Cabinet—W. Michael Blumenthal, who was named Secretary of the Treasury. That choice by the foundation is to be announced later. Father Hesburgh is a member of the Congregation of the Holy Cross. In his 59 years he has held so many offices that he has trouble recalling them. One of the most notable was his service from 1969 to 1972 as chairman of the United States Commission on Civil Rights. He has turned down an invitation to join the Carter administration, and he would not indicate the position involved. “God only knows,” Father Hesburgh said, when asked why he had been chosen to head the board—whose senior member he is , having joined in 1961. “It was a completely spontaneous thing—I didn't do anything to promote it.” He is an enthusiastic supporter of current board policy and indicated no desire for change. The chairman works part time and is not paid. The job of running the foundation, with its $840 million in assets, belongs to its president, Dr. John H. Knowles. It is plain enough at the Rockefeller Foundation that there is keen interest, not to say amusement, over the predicament of the Ford Foundation, from which Henry Ford 2nd resigned as a trustee this week. One of his complaints was that it was cultivating a “fortress mentality.” To make sure that the Rockefeller Foundation would never be a fortress, Dr. Knowles long ago gave orders—which he alluded to yesterday—to be open to the public, to encourage wide dissemination of information about the foundation's activities, He even solicited review of his foundation's work by 10 other large foundations. “There is a danger of looking inward and getting precious,” he said. “I firmly believe one page of experience is worth a volume of logic.” He believes in private enterprise no less than in public, and his foundation is attacked for dealing with both. “I can hardly use the word ‘capitalism’ without being accused of being arrogant, corrupt, bestial with respect to human suffering,” Dr. Knowles said. Mr. Ford, upset because he thought the Ford Foundation seemed lukewarm on capitalism, also charged it with turning its Office of the Arts into a financing agency instead of backing Innovation to solve “human problems.” When Dr. Knowles spoke yesterday of the $3 million a year that the Rockefeller Foundation spent on the arts, he jokingly called it “the Henry Ford branch.” "

Father "Teddy" Hesburgh also joined the board at the Rockefeller Chase Manhattan Bank! Quoting the New York Times again, : https://www.nytimes.com/1972/03/22/archives/hesburgh-is-joining-board-of-bank.html
" The Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, president of the University of Notre Dame and one of the most influential clergymen in the nation, has been elected a director of the Chase Manhattan Bank. Father Hesburgh, a 54‐year‐old educator and chairman of the United States Civil Rights Commission, was elected to the bank's board last Wednesday, but the action was not announced until yesterday. A spokesman for Chase said that Father Hesburgh would also be named to the board of the bank's parent company, the Chase Manhattan Corporation. Frederick R. Kappel the former chairman of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company, retired from the boards of the bank and its parent company early this month on reaching.the mandatory age. of 70. But, according to Chase ‘officials, Father Hesburgh could not be considered a “replacement” for Mr. Kappel because there were already three vacancies on the board. The appointment of the Roman Catholic priest to the bank's board makes him one of the relatively few clerics serving as directors of major corporations. The Rev. Dr. Leon H. Sullivan, a Philadelphia black minister and civil rights leader, has been a director of the General Motors Corporation since January, 1971, Father Hesburgh, who is widely known as Father Ted, will receive the regular $5,000 a‐year fee that the’ Chase bank pays to its outside, nonmanagement directors. In addition, he will receive $400 for each monthly meeting he attends. After teaching theology since 1945 at Notre Dame, where he was educated, Father Hesburgh was named executive vice president of the university in 1949 and president three years later."

Theodore Hesburgh was also a director at the Council of Foreign Relations! (1976–85) and a lifetime member https://www.cfr.org/sites/default/files/report_pdf/CFR_annual_report_2006.pdf

In 1968, when both Malcom Wilson and Nelson Rockefellor were in control of New York, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund gave $75,000 to the Catholic Church for ecumenical purposes. Quoting the annual report : "United States Conference for the World Council of Churches — $75,000 for the Council's expenses in undertaking a series of joint activities with officials of the Roman Catholic Church, which are designed to define and mediate the religious concepts and organizational practices separating these two church bodies.

Now here are some Jesuit connection to the modern day Rockefeller family. Current 5th generation generation Rockefeller, Steven Rockefeller Jr. is " the chairman and CEO of the Rose Rock Group, a global investment management firm established by members of the Rockefeller family.[1] Rockefeller is the son of Steven Clark Rockefeller and the grandson of former U.S. Vice President Nelson Rockefeller. " Steven was educated by Jesuits at Fairfield University! " Rockefeller received a bachelor's degree from Fairfield University (Jesuit) in 1985 and his master's degree in public and private management from the Yale School of Management in 1990.[1] " https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steven_C._Rockefeller_Jr.
Rose Rock Group has recently invested into China... : "(Reuters) – Rose Rock Capital Limited, wholly owned by the Rockefeller family, plans to raise $2 billion in both yuan and U.S. dollar funds to invest in commercial properties in China’s northern city of Tianjin, the official China Securities Journal reported on Wednesday.Rose Rock has set up a venture with Tianjin Finance Investment Co to launch the funds, which aim to raise 5 billion yuan initially, including 2 billion yuan by the end of this year, the newspaper said. Rose Rock, which controls 90 percent of the fund management venture, will be responsible for daily management and operation of the funds, while its Chinese partner will focus on government relationships, the article said. Money raised will be used to build a landmark commercial property project in Tianjin’s financial district, while future investment will expand into other areas including infrastructure, culture and education, the newspaper said.

Rose Rock Group will partner with fuel company Vung Ro Petroleum to build the project in Vung Ro Bay, in Phu Yen province on the south-central coast of Vietnam. The development will feature more than 760 rooms, 4,300 residential apartments, 100 townhouses and 350 marina berths, as well as shops and restaurants. Rose Rock, wholly owned by the New York-based Rockefeller Financial Group, has previously focused its investments in China but is now seeking opportunities elsewhere." http://www.campdenfb.com/article/rockefeller-familys-investment-firm-build-25-billion-resort-vietnam

I have found many Catholic connections to Rockefeller Capital Management aswell.

In retirement, the process of maturity continues. " https://www.firstthings.com/web-exclusives/2014/10/derek-jeters-enduring-legacy

Here is some more Rockefeller Jesuit intrigue : " Lane Kirkland, the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service (Jesuit) graduate who became AFL-CIO's top researcher and executive assistant to its president, George Meany, during the Kennedy-Johnson years. At that time, he was a director and strong supporter of the ClA-funded American Institute for Free Labor Development, which operated mostly in Latin America in cooperation with corporate leaders. When the CIA was exposed using labor and student unions and private foundations, Kirkland served on Johnson's commission to find some means of continuing the CIA's pet projects without their having to bear the CIA stigma. The commission simply recommended substituting overt government and private funding of the same projects that the CIA covertly had backed AFL-CIO's secretary-treasurer at the time of the Rockefeller Commission on CIA Abuses. Kirkland was also a member of Nelson Rockefeller's Commission on Critical Choices " Thy Will Be Done : The Conquest Of The Amazon, Nelson Rockefeller And Evangelism In The Age Of Oil ,Gerard Colby, Charlotte Dennett, pg 833

2020.10.16 22:03 finnagains Facebook and Twitter Cross a Line Far More Dangerous Than What They Censor - by Glenn Greenwald (The Intercept)

Just weeks before the election, the tech giants unite to block access to incriminating reporting about their preferred candidate.
The New York Post is one of the country’s oldest and largest newspapers. Founded in 1801 by Alexander Hamilton, only three U.S. newspapers are more widely circulated. Ever since it was purchased in 1976 by media mogul Rupert Murdoch, it has been known — like most Murdoch-owned papers — for right-wing tabloid sensationalism, albeit one that has some real reporters and editors and is capable of reliable journalism.
On Wednesday morning, the paper published on its cover what it heralded as a “blockbuster” scoop: “smoking gun” evidence, in its words, in the form of emails purportedly showing that Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, traded on his father’s position by securing favors from the then-Vice President to benefit the Ukranian energy company Burisma, which paid the supremely unqualified Hunter $50,000 each month to sit on its Board. While the Biden campaign denies that any such meetings or favors ever occurred, neither the campaign nor Hunter, at least as of now, has denied the authenticity of the emails.
The Post’s hyping of the story as some cataclysmic bombshell was overblown. While these emails, if authenticated, provide some new details and corroboration, the broad outlines of this story have long been known: Hunter was paid a very large monthly sum by Burisma at the same time that his father was quite active in using the force of the U.S. Government to influence Ukraine’s internal affairs.
Along with emails relating to Burisma, the New York Post also gratuitously published several photographs of Hunter, who has spoken openly and commendably of his past struggles with substance abuse, in what appeared to various states of drug use. There was no conceivable public interest in publishing those, and every reason not to.
The Post’s explanation of how these documents were obtained is bizarre at best — they claim that Hunter Biden indefinitely left his laptop containing the emails at a repair store, and the store’s owner, alarmed by the corruption they revealed, gave the materials from the hard drive to the FBI and then to Rudy Giuliani.
While there is no proof that Biden followed through on any of Hunter’s promises to Burisma, there is no reason, at least thus far, to doubt that the emails are genuine. And if they are genuine, they at least add to what is undeniably a relevant and newsworthy story involving influence-peddling relating to Hunter Biden’s work in Ukraine and his trading on the name and power of his father, now the front-runner in the 2020 presidential election.
But the Post, for all its longevity, power and influence, ran smack into two entities far more powerful than it: Facebook and Twitter. Almost immediately upon publication, pro-Biden journalists created a climate of extreme hostility and suppression toward the Post story, making clear that any journalist even mentioning it would be roundly attacked. For the crime of simply noting the story on Twitter (while pointing out its flaws), New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman was instantly vilified to the point where her name, along with the phrase “MAGA Haberman,” were trending on Twitter.
(That Haberman is a crypto-Trump supporter is preposterous for so many reasons, including the fact that she is responsible for countless front-page Times stories that reflect negatively on the president; moreover, the 2016 Clinton campaign considered Haberman one of their most favorable reporters).
The two Silicon Valley giants saw that hostile climate and reacted. Just two hours after the story was online, Facebook intervened. The company dispatched a life-long Democratic Party operative who now works for Facebook — Andy Stone, previously a communications operative for Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, among other DC Democratic jobs — to announce that Facebook was “reducing [the article’s] distribution on our platform”: in other words, tinkering with its own algorithms to suppress the ability of users to discuss or share the news article. The long-time Democratic Party official did not try to hide his contempt for the article, beginning his censorship announcement by snidely noting: “I will intentionally not link to the New York Post.”
Twitter’s suppression efforts went far beyond Facebook’s. They banned entirely all users’ ability to share the Post article — not just on their public timeline but even using the platform’s private Direct Messaging feature.
Early in the day, users who attempted to link to the New York Post story either publicly or privately received a cryptic message rejecting the attempt as an “error.” Later in the afternoon, Twitter changed the message, advising users that they could not post that link because the company judged its contents to be “potentially harmful.”
Even more astonishing still, Twitter locked the account of the New York Post, banning the paper from posting any content all day and, evidently, into Thursday morning. The last tweet from the paper was posted at roughly 2:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
And then, on Thursday morning, the Post published a follow up article using the same archive of materials, this one purporting to detail efforts by the Vice President’s son to pursue lucrative deals with a Chinese energy company by using his father’s name. Twitter is now also banning the sharing or posting of links to that article as well.
In sum, the two Silicon Valley giants, with little explanation, united to prevent the sharing and dissemination of this article. As Los Angeles Times reporter Matt Pearce put it, “Facebook limiting distribution is a bit like if a company that owned newspaper delivery trucks decided not to drive because it didn’t like a story. Does a truck company edit the newspaper? It does now, apparently.”
That the First Amendment right of free speech is inapplicable to these questions goes without saying. That constitutional guarantee restricts the actions of governments, not private corporations such as Facebook and Twitter.
But glibly pointing this out does not come close to resolving this controversy. That actions by gigantic corporations are constitutional does not mean that they are benign.
State censorship is not the only kind of censorship. Private-sector repression of speech and thought, particularly in the internet era, can be as dangerous and consequential. Imagine, for instance, if these two Silicon Valley giants united with Google to declare: henceforth we will ban all content that is critical of President Trump and/or the Republican Party, but will actively promote criticisms of Joe Biden and the Democrats.
Would anyone encounter difficultly understanding why such a decree would constitute dangerous corporate censorship? Would Democrats respond to such a policy by simply shrugging it off on the radical libertarian ground that private corporations have the right to do whatever they want? To ask that question is to answer it.
To begin with, Twitter and particularly Facebook are no ordinary companies. Facebook, as the owner not just of its massive social media platform but also other key communication services it has gobbled up such as Instagram and WhatsApp, is one of the most powerful companies ever to exist, if not the most powerful. In June, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial, and Administrative Law launched an investigation into the consolidated power of Facebook and three other companies — Google, Amazon and Apple — and just last week issued a sweeping report which, as Ars Technica explained, found:
Facebook outright “has monopoly power in the market for social networking,” and that power is “firmly entrenched and unlikely to be eroded by competitive pressure” from anyone at all due to “high entry barriers—including strong network effects, high switching costs, and Facebook’s significant data advantage—that discourage direct competition by other firms to offer new products and services.”
In his New York Times op-ed last October, the left-wing expert on monopoly power Matt Stoller described Facebook and Google as “global monopolies sitting astride public discourse,” and recounted how bipartisan policy and legal changes designed to whittle away antitrust protections have bestowed the two tech giants with “a radical centralization of power over the flow of information.” And he warns that this unprecedented consolidation of control over our discourse is close to triggering “the collapse of journalism and democracy.”
It has been astonishing to watch Democrats over the last twenty-four hours justify this censorship on the grounds that private corporations are entitled to do whatever they want. Not even radical free-market libertarians espouse such a pro-corporate view. Even the most ardent capitalist recognizes that companies that wield monopoly or quasi-monopoly power have an obligation to act in the public interest, and are answerable to the public regarding whether they are doing so.
That is why in both the EU and increasingly the U.S., there are calls from across the political spectrum to either break up Facebook on antitrust and monopoly grounds or regulate it as a public utility, the way electric and water companies and AT&T have been. Almost nobody in the democratic world believes that Facebook is just some ordinary company that should be permitted to exercise unfettered power and act without constraints of any kind. Indeed, Facebook’s monumental political and economic power — greater than most if not all the governments of nation-states — is the major impediment to such reforms.
Beyond that, both Facebook and Twitter receive substantial, unique legal benefits from federal law, further negating the claim that they are free to do whatever they want as private companies. Just as is true of Major League Baseball — which is subject to regulation by Congress as a result of the antitrust exemption they enjoy under the law — these social media companies receive a very valuable and particularized legal benefit in the form of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which shields them from any liability for content published on their platforms, including defamatory material or other legally proscribed communications.
No company can claim such massive, unique legal exemptions from the federal law and then simultaneously claim they owe no duties to the public interest and are not answerable to anyone. To advocate that is a form of authoritarian corporatism: simultaneously allowing tech giants to claim legally conferred privileges and exemptions while insisting that they can act without constraints of any kind.
Then there is the practical impact of Twitter and Facebook uniting to block content published by a major newspaper. It is true in theory that one can still read the suppressed article by visiting the New York Post website directly, but the stranglehold that these companies exert over our discourse is so dominant that their censorship amounts to effective suppression of the reporting.
In 2018, Pew Research found that “about two-thirds of U.S. adults (68%) get news on social media sites. One-in-five get news there often.“ The combination of Facebook, Google and Twitter controls the information received by huge numbers of Americans, Pew found. “Facebook is still far and away the site Americans most commonly use for news. About four-in-ten Americans (43%) get news on Facebook. The next most commonly used site for news is YouTube [owned by Google], with 21% getting news there, followed by Twitter at 12%.”
While Twitter still falls short of Facebook in terms of number of users, a 2019 report found that “Twitter remains the leading social network among journalists at 83%.” Censoring a story from Twitter thus has disproportionate impact by hiding it from the people who determine and shape the news.
The grave dangers posed by the censorship actions of yesterday should be self-evident. Just over two weeks before a presidential election, Silicon Valley giants — whose industry leaders and workforce overwhelmingly favor the Democratic candidate — took extraordinary steps to block millions, perhaps tens of millions, of American voters from being exposed to what purports to be a major exposé by one of the country’s oldest and largest newspapers.
As the New York Times put it in an article in March about the political preferences of tech leaders: “Silicon Valley has long leaned blue.” Large numbers of tech executives, including Facebook’s second-in-command Sheryl Sandberg, were also vocally supportive of Hillary Clinton in 2016. At the very least, the perception, if not the reality, has been created that these tech giants are using their unprecedented power over political and election-related information to prevent the dissemination of negative reporting about the presidential candidate they favor. Whatever that is, it is not democratic or something to cheer.
The rationale offered by both Twitter and Facebook to justify this censorship makes it more alarming, not less. Twitter claimed that the Post article violates its so-called “Hacked Materials Policy,” which it says permits “commentary on or discussion about hacked materials, such as articles that cover them but do not include or link to the materials themselves”; in other words, Twitter allows links to articles about hacked materials but bans “links to or images of hacked material themselves.”
The company added that their policy “prohibits the use of our service to distribute content obtained without authorization” because, they said, they “don’t want to incentivize hacking by allowing Twitter to be used as distribution for possibly illegally obtained materials.”
But that standard, if taken seriously and applied consistently, would result in the banning from the platform of huge amounts of the most important and consequential journalism. After all, a large bulk of journalism is enabled by sources providing “content obtained without authorization” to journalists, who then publish it.
Indeed, many of the most celebrated and significant stories of the last several decades — the Pentagon Papers, the WikiLeaks’ Collateral Murder video and war logs, the Snowden reporting, the Panama Papers, the exposés from the Brazil Archive we reported over the last year — relied upon publication of various forms of “hacked materials” provided by sources. The same is true of the DNC and Podesta emails that exposed corruption and forced the 2016 resignation of the top five officials of the Democratic National Committee.
Does anyone think it would be justifiable or politically healthy for tech giants to bar access to those documents of historic importance in journalism and politics? That is what the Twitter policy, taken on its face, would require.
For that matter, why is Twitter not blocking access to the ongoing New York Times articles that disclose the contents of President Trump’s tax returns, the unauthorized disclosure of which is a crime? Why did those platforms not block links to the now-notorious Rachel Maddow segment where she revealed details about one of Trump’s old tax returns on the ground that it was “content obtained without authorization”? Or what about the virtually daily articles in the New York Times, Washington Post, NBC News and others that explicitly state they are publishing information that the source is unauthorized to disclose: how does that not fall squarely within the banning policy as Twitter defined it yesterday?
Worse still, why does Twitter’s “hacking” policy apply to the New York Post story at all? While the Post’s claims about how these emails were obtained are dubious at best, there is no evidence — unlike the award-winning journalism scoops referenced above — that they were obtained by virtue of “hacking” by a source.
Facebook’s rationale for suppression — that it needs to have its “fact checking” partners verify the story before allowing it to be spread — poses different but equally alarming dangers. What makes Mark Zuckerberg’s social media company competent to “fact check” the work of other journalists? Why did Facebook block none of the endless orgy of Russiagate conspiracy theories from major media outlets that were completely unproven if not outright false?
Do we really want Facebook serving as some sort of uber-editor for U.S. media and journalism, deciding what information is suitable for the American public to read and which should be hidden from it after teams of journalists and editors at real media outlets have approved its publication? And can anyone claim that Facebook’s alleged “fact-checking” process is applied with any remote consistency given how often they failed to suppress sketchily sourced or facially unreliable stories — such as, say, the Steele Dossier and endless articles based on it? Can you even envision the day when an unproven conspiracy theory — leaked by the CIA or FBI to the Washington Post or NBC News — is suppressed pending “fact-checking” by Facebook?
Twitter is not opposed to hacked materials and Facebook is not opposed to dubiously sourced stories. They are opposed to such things only when such stories anger powerful factions. When those power centers are the ones disseminating such stories, they will continue to have free rein to do so.
The glaring fallacy that always lies at the heart of pro-censorship sentiments is the gullible, delusional belief that censorship powers will be deployed only to suppress views one dislikes, but never one’s own views. The most cursory review of history, and the most minimal understanding of how these tech giants function, instantly reveals the folly of that pipe dream.
Facebook is not some benevolent, kind, compassionate parent or a subversive, radical actor who is going to police our discourse in order to protect the weak and marginalized or serve as a noble check on mischief by the powerful. They are almost always going to do exactly the opposite: protect the powerful from those who seek to undermine elite institutions and reject their orthodoxies.
Tech giants, like all corporations, are required by law to have one overriding objective: maximizing shareholder value. They are always going to use their power to appease those they perceive wield the greatest political and economic power.
That is why Facebook accepts virtually every request from the Israeli Government to remove the pages of Palestinian journalists and activists on the grounds of “incitement,” but almost never accepts Palestinians’ requests to remove Israeli content. It is the same reason Facebook blocks and censors governments adverse to the U.S., but not the other way around. They are going to heed the interests of the powerful at the expense of those who lack it. It is utter madness to want to augment their censorship powers or to expect they will use it for any other ends.
Facebook and Twitter have in the past censored the content or removed the accounts of far-right voices. They have done the same to left-wing voices. That is always how it will work: it is exclusively the voices on the fringes and the margins, the dissidents, those who reside outside of the factions of power who will be subjected to this silencing. Mainstream political and media voices, and the U.S. Government and its allies, will be fully free to spread conspiracy theories and disinformation without ever being subjected to these illusory “rules.”
Censorship power, like the tech giants who now wield it, is an instrument of status quo preservation. The promise of the internet from the start was that it would be a tool of liberation, of egalitarianism, by permitting those without money and power to compete on fair terms in the information war with the most powerful governments and corporations.
But just as is true of allowing the internet to be converted into a tool of coercion and mass surveillance, nothing guts that promise, that potential, like empowering corporate overloads and unaccountable monopolists to regulate and suppress what can be heard.
To observe that those who are cheering for this today because they happen to like this particular outcome are being short-sighted and myopic is to woefully understate the case. The only people who should want to live in a world where Mark Zuckerberg and Sundar Pichai and Jeff Bezos have a stranglehold on what can be said and heard are those whose actions are devoted to the perpetuation of their power and who benefit from their hegemony.
Everyone else will eventually be faced with the choice of conformity or censorship, of refraining from expressing prohibited views as the cost for maintaining access to crucial social media platforms. The only thing more authoritarian than the acts of Facebook and Twitter yesterday is the mentality that causes ordinary people to cheer it, to be grateful for the power and control they have long wielded and yesterday finally unleashed.
Update: Oct. 16, 2020, 6:18 a.m. ET Late Thursday evening, Twitter announced changes to its ”Hacked Materials Policy” designed to address concerns that its policy as stated — and as applied to the Post articles — would result in the banning of crucial reporting based on hacked materials or other “unauthorized” disclosures. Explained by Vijaya Gadde, a top Twitter executive, the new rules now provide that Twitter’s policy applies not to articles by news outlets reporting on hacked materials but only in those cases when the hacked material “is directly shared by hackers or those acting in concert with them.” Additionally, going forward, Twitter “will label Tweets to provide context instead of blocking links from being shared.” Gadde said specifically that the changes are intended “to address the concerns that there could be many unintended consequences to journalists, whistleblowers and others in ways that are contrary to Twitter’s purpose of serving the public conversation.”
There are still serious concerns about what Twitter did in this particular case and how these rules will be applied to future cases, but these changes are a commendably responsive effort to minimize the dangers of this policy and alleviate the concerns raised by journalists and transparency advocates.

2020.10.15 18:07 RainForTheParade [M4F] Looking for a long-term roleplay partner! Tons of HORROR and ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE prompts inside! Open to ALL genres! Fandoms are also listed if you prefer! Canon and OC welcome!

DO NOT MESSAGE ME ABOUT YOUR GROUP OR SERVER! THIS IS FOR 1x1's only! I prefer discord, and do not use kik, or Reddit PMs!
This ad is huge, so I’ve cut up genres into sections. The largest is the first section which revolves around horror plots I have, feel free to skip around to find your preferences. If I don’t have a genre or fandom listed, that doesn’t mean I’m not open to it!
Hello! I'm currently looking for a long-term RP partner who enjoys original world or fandom based RPs! While I have a couple ideas, I am more than happy to hear out my partners. Below I’ll start with the horror genre, but if that’s not your thing, feel free to skip around to fandoms or other genres!
Please note that I am looking for romance as well for most of my plots/roleplays, though I only write MxF in which I play Male. If you aren’t wanting romance, let me know ahead of time as to certain plots I am willing to do without, while others I’m not.
Horror:
St John's Hostel
This is an idea I have that centers around the employee's of a hostel that sits almost 15 miles away from the nearest town. It sits on no maps, and googling it will give little to no results. The premise is that all things supernatural and abnormal seem to happen. Whether it be weird guests, serial killers, cannibals, Bigfoot/Sasquatches, or something else just as abnormal. The employee's are more than aware and accustomed to things that go on. Such as 'avoid the screams from the basement that happen every night from 2:11 am to 3:49 am.' Or 'Don't leave meat outside for the wildlife on a Wednesday night.' Then there is the high mortality rate of customers. It's not unlikely to find a man turned into mincemeat, or see some wild beast making its way off with a body. Though it seems most employees are exempt from these cruel fates, long as they know what they're doing.
In comes your character, a new employee working there for whatever reason, and completely oblivious to the state of things and what's happening. Their background and reasons for being there are 100% up to you, so long as they aren't familiar with the abnormalities.
Green light
[Based on the world of 'Control', 'Alan Wake', 'Quantum Break', and several others with similar themes]
So while this is far from the most thought out idea I have, it's one I would love to utilize. Generally another example people have added it to is 'SCP.' which is also a semi-accurate portrayal.
The Federal Bureau of Control (FBC) is a clandestine United States government organization tasked with the containment, study, and control of paranatural phenomena. Operating on a national scale, the FBC investigates events and objects which violate the scientific laws of nature, with the goal of understanding and controlling these elements. The Bureau's headquarters is a mysterious Brutalist skyscraper in New York City known as the Oldest House, which exists outside of ordinary reality.
The FBC is responsible for both the scientific study of paranatural elements and the protection of the nation (and humanity as a whole) from these forces. Among the phenomena studied by the FBC are Altered World Events (AWEs), Altered Items, Objects of Power, and other realms and dimensions. The Oldest House, itself a paranatural location, serves as a containment and study facility for these types of phenomena.
I would love to do something involving this theme, granted I'm not married to it, and everything is open for discussion. Alternatively I am also open to it not even being revolved around the actual group/organization but instead something that would be cause for alarm. Such as a semi-large scale event or being. I would love to discuss this one!
Conspiracy
Based on an old show, and short horror series]
Conspiracy is somewhat akin to St John's hostel, though instead of following a desolate location, it takes place around a small town of just under 10,000 people. It's most notable features is that it sits right on the border of Oregon and Washington [though every resident claims it's only one of the two states.], it's lack of actual location on most maps and registries, and finally the amount of woodlands and nature that surrounds it. However there is a special thing about the small town. It is a hub for all things supernatural and horrific to come around. From beasts that claw their way into homes to feed on those who were unfortunate enough to lock their door, to small creatures that steal simple jewelry at night. From werewolves to a land shark, nothing is off limits. With the abnormal amount of death toll, it stays oddly populated for several unknown reasons. Some of the people in the town acknowledge what happens, while others pretend that it simply doesn't happen and put it to the back of their mind.
Even so, there are several sinister things going on that stick out just enough if you were to look for them. From a small wake that seems to always stay in business due to the horrible events, to a small diner which you can swear the meat doesn't taste like anything you've ever had before. Or maybe the fact that the small abandoned carnival in the woods turns on for one hour every Saturday night at midnight. And finally the biggest fact, being that it is home to several serial killers that rarely make the news.
The plot and story are open on this, but I do have several ideas in mind along with a character, though I am glad to hear any suggestions or ideas.
The Bayous A ‘Conspiracy’ location with a more eerie feel. This is still part of the conspiracy prompt, though gives the option of another setting that focuses on a more swamp based environment instead of something set in a more forest-like location. All the information given about background is still relevant!
Set in a different location but still part of the Conspiracy prompt, this focuses on another small town. Located in Louisiana. Unlike the other, this town is all about making a name for itself. A variety of claims seem to have made the area a local tourist attraction, despite the amount of gruesome deaths that occur constantly. Because of this, the local town set just a few miles down from the swamplands seems to have become bustling with activity. Attracting all kinds of attention from media outlets to horror enthusiasts who want to get as close to the real thing as possible. From horror themed carnivals to the local drive-in featuring horror movies, it seems that this town place has really leaned into the fame it’s gotten. Many of the locals also seem to share in this love that their home has gotten. Though even with all the tourism and names, very few locals actually wander into the swamps. And those that do make sure to be back by the time the sun is down.
Slaughterhouse
A recent string of mass disappearances cause a stir in the nation. The most recent being an entire town's worth of residents to have just disappeared. One of the biggest reveals being a drone shot that showed the words 'CROATOAN' spray painted along a police precinct. This immediately attracted the attention of the media from outside the nation. Because of this, the event was dubbed 'The Roanoke Disappearances.' after the famous colony that seemed to have shared quite a few things in common with the most recent.
However this story follows not those left to look behind the disappearances, but the disappeared. Awakening in an alternate world which could be described as a broken mirror of the original. People are forced to kill each other and extra dimensional beings and beasts told only in story for spot. Mostly to appease some kind of beast.
There is no meaning of fair. People of all kinds are forced to go up against each other. From the elderly being thrown into a death match between a pro wrestler, to an office worker having to fight a pack of mutated wolves. The word 'bloodbath' does well to define this.
---
While the plot revolves around those forced against each other in a broken world, it's more than open for discussion and nothing is set in stone! If you prefer them forced into a hostile world instead, I can happily work with that as well!
Blood and Snow
This one is based off of a small animatic called 'Let's Split Up.' I'm a huge fan of horror films and slasher films. Not to mention Native American mythology. The idea is that it follows two shape shifting wendigo during a blizzard in the mountains. Unlike previous winters, it's reached the lowest temperatures in the last 50 years, not to mention that everywhere seems to be snowed in. With a brutal storm the two are forced to co-exist as a bunch of camp counselors celebrate and party. Set in the 80's. The biggest difference is that one wants to slaughter and eat their way through them, while the other isn't so keen on killing off everyone immediately. While this does rely on two wendigo, you can easily have your primary be human.
Something based on slasher movies
If you've seen any slasher movie in your life, then you already know what's up. Looking for something that really hits the old school feel akin to the movies involving Jason, Micheal Myers, Ghost face, and all the like. Characters and ideas can be discussed, everything is on the table!
Something much more Lovecraftian or eldritch horror
I would love something that really leans into eldritch and general Lovecraft territory. Now word of caution, I am far from the most knowledgeable on this, though I do have the power of google on my side. Generally I love having it set anywhere from WWI all the way to modern day. Though personally post-WWII or post-Vietnam are my favorites but just a bit extra. I love seeing the characters out of their depth, against unreasonable odds, surrounded by monstrosities that should be non-existent. From deep ones and their semi-human offspring, to curses that have plagued families to generations. Not to mention all the cults we can get to see! The options are endless!
High rise
This plot revolves around what seems to be an undetermined number of floors in a high rise building. [The highest known is 160 just in case you want to know what the maximum possible was.] People awake starting on floor 1. With all exits locked, and nothing but the clothes on their backs people are forced to make their way up. Most stairs and elevators seem to be useless on most floors, instead forcing those to find what is a makeshift path to the next floor. Every window seems to have been blacked out, and heavily reinforced, leaving minimal lighting unless whoever designed the hellscape sees fit to add more. Each floor has some sort of sick game that those who make it up are forced to survive. These are not tied to the rules of reality. From sicking wolves, to dealing with the undead. Weapons, supplies, and everything else is scarce. Some floors seem to be unhinged from reality, spanning what could be miles or even new environments that are impossible to be contained within a building. The farther in our characters make it, the less things can be explained.
A lot of this is up to us and how we want to decide things. We can keep it ground in reality, but I’d personally prefer it if we didn’t. We can discuss what we want to see from the plot and general settings for the floors. Not even the sky is our limit!
A quiet little town [Based on Silent Hill.]
Several strangers wake up in a small town inhabited by locals. With an eerie mist that seems to block any bit of vision just past the woods, they are forced to figure out how they got there, and why they are there. The residents of the town seem to be very few, but those that are there belong to a cult that worships a monstrosity that seems to also be hunting down the unlucky survivors.
Hostile Territory Inspired by the series ‘Manifest Destiny’ and ‘Primal’ This prompt follows a pre-modern fantasy horror setting. Most notably during anywhere from ‘1000’ AD to the early 1800’s. It also allows for an ‘AU’ of our world’s history, so don’t feel the need to follow specifics if you want to have fun! This can also be set in another setting and timeline, if you would rather a vibe much more akin to ‘Primal.’ This follows settlers and their expedition to America, Or an expedition of the Western US after it’s purchase, all the way to the time of the Oregon trail. The idea is that this follows unfamiliar territory, hostile with natives and other problems. Though many unreal, and abnormal. From beasts that should never exist, to carnivore plant life and even hive mind infections. It follows those trying to survive and reach the end, with no option to turn back. The idea is that this is unfamiliar territory. The big three options are during the early 1000’s AD, where the vikings Discovered America. Or during an alternate history Expedition of the Louisiana purchase. And of course there Oregon trail. Please note that we have more freedom, and we can even have it set somewhere else as mentioned above if you’re looking for a much different setting or something more akin to ‘Primal.’ We can always discuss this, and there are A LOT of options on the table!
Last stop. Inspired by bloodride [Which I never even watched, just saw some art of it.] This prompt revolves around those who find themselves trapped after boarding what should have been a normal bus just after midnight. Their reasons are all different, but without much matter. What does is where it’s going. The bus seems to be untethered to reality. Without any real driver, it trudges forward through an uncharted route. Those that look outside will see something different. From desolate wastelands, to ruined cities. The bus seems to always stop at a new location, a doorway into a different world. All with some kind of horror. Some that seem to be a desolate desert with no end in sight, from those that seem to be bustling with people The bus often demands fuel at these stops before once again continuing. In most cases, it ranges from something simple such as gasoline, to less realistic options such as simple jugs or water. Though in other cases, less savory demands are made, such as blood from a specific animal species or even those of the living. The bus seems to have no set times, with some drives between worlds taking merely minutes, while others have gone for almost a whole week. The most notable thing is that despite having no driver, there is a disembodied voice which acts as a guide in a way. It answers most questions, and even has something to chime in at times. The voice has promised those that make it to the end salvation, but refuses to give more information than that about their destination. The only light is that the bus acts as a safe haven, along with a good couple meter circle around it. --- This prompt personally isn’t the most detailed, as I prefer to go into specifics and come up with circumstances with my partner.
Terror Infinity Inspired by the series of the same name.
For those who are unfamiliar with the series [which I won’t be surprised if most are, it’s not exactly big, and it’s foreign.] It follows those who are forced into “God’s Dimension.” Which happens to be an endlessly moving speed rail that has quite a few rooms. The whole idea revolves around that groups of people are brought into this mysterious world and forced into famous horror movies, games, and other settings with a clear goal and purpose to survive. The idea is that they get ‘1000’ points for surviving a single event, and they have no choice in avoiding it. The reason for these points? It cost 50,000 to go back. Which means that at a minimum 50 ‘events’ must be survived. Though that’s only if not a single point is spent. What can they be spent on? The most common seems to be immediate healing upon return, which can vary from only a couple points for smaller wounds like cuts and damage, to up to a couple hundred for large scale wounds like an amputated appendage. With nearly a thousand being used to bring someone back from the brink of death. Though those can also be used to increase ‘stats’ such as physical strength, buy weapons, ammunition, and all kinds of things. Even supernatural abilities. Though that doesn’t make anything easier, the more movies the group survives, the harder they get. There is quite a bit more to this, but I’ll save that for DMs in case anyone is actually interested!
The zombie apocalypse
I have a ton of zombie apocalypse ideas as well! They will also be listed below.
1) Welcome to the freak show!
If you've ever played any zombie video game, there is a high chance that there is more than just your run of the mill 'zombie' from undead that seemed staggeringly strong, to ones that explode when you get close. These mutant freaks seem to be an uncommon breed, but by no means rare! I would love to focus on a world that includes these mistakes of nature and much more!
Some examples: Days gone, Dying light, Left 4 dead, The last of us, Dead island, And more!
2) Second generation survivors!
A generation is typically 25-30 years depending on who you ask. For this I'm specifically looking at an apocalypse that takes place anywhere around 50-60 years after it had become global. Meaning our characters [And most likely their parents.] would be born into a world that was already brought to ruins. This would mean that the undead would not be considered the same to them. Zombies seem closer to a wolf or rabid dog than a person who has passed away and reanimated. People have become used to their lives in communities and actively have little fear for the undead, typically leaving them alone.
3) A family favorite game show!
If you've ever heard of 'Dead Rising 2' then you might be familiar with TK and his incredibly popular show 'Terror is Reality.' This idea takes a bit of inspiration from it. In a world where the apocalypse was just narrowly avoided, cities and towns which had infections spread or breakout would often be quarantined then cleaned out by professional companies. In comes a new reality show all about survival. With a $100,000 cash grand prize for winning, players must survive an entire year in all matter of places. From private islands that are full of starving infected, to the quarantined streets of Hollywood. The catch? Death is around every corner. With no medical relief staff, and other players gunning it for the money. Will you risk it all for the hundred grand? Or split the winnings and play it safe?
4) Time's Arrow!
Who said the apocalypse has to be set in the modern days? I would be just as happy having it set in a historical time period. Peak of Rome? Sure! Vikings fighting back draugr? Of course! There are so many choices to choose from! The sky's our limit! [Please note, I'm primarily looking for time periods before guns advanced past muskets and flintlocks.]
5) Through the fire.
When the apocalypse initially rained down, everything of course went to hell. But where was the military during this time? The idea follows a small squadron of soldiers and civilians trying to make it across an apocalyptic united states of America in hopes of finding a cruise ship that has been giving out radio signals for the past several weeks. The catch? They are in need of a person who knows how to sail a ship long-term in hopes of reaching the Hawaiian islands. A member of the navy who happens to hold this specific skill is accompanying them. Though many trials await them on their journey.
6) Through the unknown.
Not all zombies are caused because of a virus. Some are products of a curse or a bokocaplata. This voodoo/black magic always has a source, and our characters are part of the expedition team to put an end to it! Of course several cliche characters are perfectly fitting for this idea. From the ex-marine who's now a mercenary, to the science loving geek who knows just about everything that's happening. The effects for the 'apocalypse' in this idea can be limited to just a single city/town all the way to the entire country/hemisphere. This focuses greatly on being in a developing country or tribal land!
7) Abandoned colonies.
After seven decades of colonizing mars, humanity found its future bright. With new innovations and technology only thought to be of science fiction constantly being developed, they started to become self reliant. Dome shaped colonies fitting families, and all kinds of scientists seemed to be doing exceptionally well. Though things take a turn for the worse when communications with earth shut down along with several other colonies.
8) What comes after.
I would love something set ‘after’ the initial apocalypse has come and gone. With most undead finally having withered away, minus a few large groups here and there that are in quarantine zones that have been closed off or become inaccessible by any means for the undead to escape. [For example 20 foot walls build around that would require someone to climb a ladder and such. Not the best example, but you get the idea.]
Pretty much this plot would focus on what comes after the initial apocalypse. The rebuilding of America [or another country] after things have come and gone leaving the world scattered. The time since the initial apocalypse started can be anywhere from a good 4-75 years. [4 is assuming the bodies decay at a normal decay rate, leaving them pretty much gone after 4 years. Anything above that would more closely follow the idea that they aren’t bound to normal decay like most zombie movies or shows seem to keep as a factor.]
The finer plot details can be discussed in DMs, but I would love to really see how new societies have taken to handling things in the world. From ones that have pretty laid back laws and demands, to ones that are so strict that even stealing can lead to a death penalty. I would also love to see some form of ‘universal currency’ but we can always discuss and plan that out later.
9) Ground Zero
Inspired by #Alive
While I love the apocalypse once it’s been established, this prompt specifically follows our characters from day one, ground zero. Where the first of infections took place, leading to the mass spread. I have two options for how it starts in this situation. The first is by physically spreading the normal way, which will have more of a gradual turn across the states and world as things go in a downward spiral. In this situation, we’ll see our characters traveling across America [or another country] to find a safe haven. Some places seemingly free entirely of infection, and others that haven’t quite heard the news. Where money is still being used, and our characters are able to find a sense of normality, to places that have no human life left, and are littered with the infected. The second being that everyone with AB- blood type [Around less than 1% of the population.] are immediately infected by a mass mutation of rabies, while those of other blood types only react to the normal way of spreading. Because of this, infected pop up pretty much everywhere within 24 hours, leading to a mass infection that overcomes the world easily within a week or two at most. Depending on which we go with, it’ll leave a very different world. The second will have a lack of normality and safe havens, along with real government response, while the first will have quarantine zones, carpet bombings, and much more! We can always discuss it!
10) And the rest!
Of course I am open to many other ideas, and not just what is on the list! If you have a specific one in mind, go ahead and tell me! I'm more than happy to hear you out!
That's all the ideas I have for anything horror based now, but feel free to let me know if any interest you, or you have your own ideas as well!
Fantasy:
So when it comes to fantasy, I’m primarily looking for a roleplay partner who's interested in something set in the world of Dungeons and Dragons or at least a world with many fantasy elements akin to it! While I'm more than happy to take elements and 'homebrew' races, magic, and more, I do generally want the idea to be set in a world of that setting. I have a small couple of ideas in mind, but am more than happy to hear out any you may be holding!
While fantasy is my primary interest, I am open to all sorts of it timeline/era wise. From modern to medieval, to anything in between! Even sci-fi/cyberpunk works with me! Please let me know what your preferences are so I can take that into account!
I also have nearly no triggers, so don’t be afraid to come at me full force! Though if something is too much for me, I will let you know! I will gladly hear out yours as well and make sure that no elements akin to those are involved in the roleplay!
Next off, I have several characters ready to be used, all various races. I am more than happy to let my partner choose which one interests them the most! Please note that none of them are required to be used, but it’s my primary interest in using them!
When it comes to romance involved, I do slowburn, fast burn, middle ground, and anything else in between! I’m also fine with other situations like arranged marriages, already together, etc. Please let me know your preference on this one as well so I can take it into account while we plot/world build!
As for my partner, I'm fine with a fair amount of races.
Below are those races [off the top of my head.] Please note I am open to ones not on the list, this is just from a quick jot down. Feel free to ask about any you may be interested in!
- Human
- Most types of Elven
- Tiefling
- Genasi
- Half-orc
- Aasimar
- Triton
- Yuan-Ti pureblood
- Kalashtar
- Changeling
- Simic Hybrid
- Vedalken
-OC races
- Most humanoid races in general.
I enjoy both light and dark themes, so feel free to come for either! Please note I will NOT play the role of a GM, looking for a partner, not a player
I’m also more than willing to discuss other worlds and do things other than high fantasy. Low fantasy is welcome as well!
Sci-fi/Cyberpunk
Another genre I love! While I generally enjoy having multiple races in sci-fi/cyberpunk, it is far from a requirement. Much like fantasy, I do have a cast of characters that can be used, but none of them are required to be thrown in!
For this I generally enjoy all kinds of plots, from detectives/mysteries to hardcore action. Whether it’s laser swords, high tech guns, or body augmentations, I’m always interested in most variations of this genre!
Other genres
I’m also open to nearly all other genres. Modern. Super-heroes. Slice of life. Romance. Drama. Angst. Historical. And much, much more! If you have any specific plots or genres I haven’t gone into, don’t be afraid to hit me up and ask me about them! I normally would write more, but at the moment this ad is already quite long, and I still have to go into the fandoms and myself.

- And I'm open to other ones, so feel free to hit me with them!
We can always discuss shipping and such in DMs/Chat. Don’t be afraid to ask about a fandom or two not on the list, as I often end up not including every single one I’m a fan of [there is quite a bit!
While all those fandoms are open, I do have a couple plots in mind for a few of them!
DC:
I would LOVE something set with the Suicide Squad/Task Force X. Preferably with an OC that I recently have gotten designed, as I don't really write any canon villains for my primary.
Devil May Cry:
I'm thinking that it should take place post DMC 5 (Most likely several months at least). While I don't mind if you play canon or OC, I'll be having my primary be Nero. I would love it if after the events of DMC5 that things involving devils became much more common knowledge! Possibly leading to the infamous 'DMC' getting quite a bit more work and calls, possibly even to the point where they are overwhelmed.
Borderlands:
I'm more than fine with OCs, but I heavily prefer canon characters. As it goes, I'm looking for anything in the borderlands universe. So all the games/settings are open to me. While I do want something based POST-BORDERLANDS 3 or AU Borderlands 3. It isn't a must. I can do anything from Borderlands, Borderlands 2, Borderlands: TPS, or TFTB!
In the case of writing a canon character, I'd heavily prefer August, or Rhys.
Star Wars:
So for timeline wise up to the 'Mandalorian' is fine. I'd prefer if it was set during the time of the inquisitors. In the case of me playing an OC I can gladly do a Sith or a Jedi. Possibly even a force sensitive bounty hunter.
In the case of me writing Cal kestis, I'd prefer if it took place not that long after the events of SWJ:FO. Though this can be discussed.
AND MORE!
I have plenty of more plots for fandoms, but the ad is getting quite long already, so I'll leave it here!
About me:
A bit about me! I'm just your regular dude who enjoys camping, hiking, horror movies, coffee, and several other things, but I can tell you about that later! I'm currently kicking it in the east coast of the United States, which means my timezone is EST. I'm normally free any time after 2-4 pm [EST] from Monday-Friday. And then weekends I'm pretty active as well. When it comes to post length I tend to match my partner, so whether I'm giving 10 sentences or 10 paragraphs, I'm always able! I can do novella length happily! I'm 21 and have no triggers, and am willing to delve into more mature or sensitive themes, though if something is a bit much for me, I'll let you know.
I love talking OOC with partners and generally try to keep a good friendship with them if they're down for it. I won't share any info about my real life, as I've had stalkers in the past. So if I don't show you pictures of myself, or won't talk about certain aspects, please don't be offended.
I actually have commissioned art for A LOT of my characters, and am more than willing to show them! I also prefer to stick to discord when it comes to a medium/platform, but I'm more than willing to discuss other options. I will not use kik/telegram. Please don't ask.
Thanks for reading, if you are interested, simply DM me!
DO NOT MESSAGE ME ABOUT YOUR GROUP/SERVER! I AM ONLY LOOKING FOR A 1x1 ROLEPLAY!
submitted by RainForTheParade to roleplaying [link] [comments]


2020.10.15 18:07 RainForTheParade [M4F] Looking for a long-term roleplay partner! Tons of HORROR and ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE prompts inside! Open to ALL genres! Fandoms are also listed if you prefer! Canon and OC welcome!

DO NOT MESSAGE ME ABOUT YOUR GROUP OR SERVER! THIS IS FOR 1x1's only! I prefer discord, and do not use kik, or Reddit PMs!
This ad is huge, so I’ve cut up genres into sections. The largest is the first section which revolves around horror plots I have, feel free to skip around to find your preferences. If I don’t have a genre or fandom listed, that doesn’t mean I’m not open to it!
Hello! I'm currently looking for a long-term RP partner who enjoys original world or fandom based RPs! While I have a couple ideas, I am more than happy to hear out my partners. Below I’ll start with the horror genre, but if that’s not your thing, feel free to skip around to fandoms or other genres!
Please note that I am looking for romance as well for most of my plots/roleplays, though I only write MxF in which I play Male. If you aren’t wanting romance, let me know ahead of time as to certain plots I am willing to do without, while others I’m not.
Horror:
St John's Hostel
This is an idea I have that centers around the employee's of a hostel that sits almost 15 miles away from the nearest town. It sits on no maps, and googling it will give little to no results. The premise is that all things supernatural and abnormal seem to happen. Whether it be weird guests, serial killers, cannibals, Bigfoot/Sasquatches, or something else just as abnormal. The employee's are more than aware and accustomed to things that go on. Such as 'avoid the screams from the basement that happen every night from 2:11 am to 3:49 am.' Or 'Don't leave meat outside for the wildlife on a Wednesday night.' Then there is the high mortality rate of customers. It's not unlikely to find a man turned into mincemeat, or see some wild beast making its way off with a body. Though it seems most employees are exempt from these cruel fates, long as they know what they're doing.
In comes your character, a new employee working there for whatever reason, and completely oblivious to the state of things and what's happening. Their background and reasons for being there are 100% up to you, so long as they aren't familiar with the abnormalities.
Green light
[Based on the world of 'Control', 'Alan Wake', 'Quantum Break', and several others with similar themes]
So while this is far from the most thought out idea I have, it's one I would love to utilize. Generally another example people have added it to is 'SCP.' which is also a semi-accurate portrayal.
The Federal Bureau of Control (FBC) is a clandestine United States government organization tasked with the containment, study, and control of paranatural phenomena. Operating on a national scale, the FBC investigates events and objects which violate the scientific laws of nature, with the goal of understanding and controlling these elements. The Bureau's headquarters is a mysterious Brutalist skyscraper in New York City known as the Oldest House, which exists outside of ordinary reality.
The FBC is responsible for both the scientific study of paranatural elements and the protection of the nation (and humanity as a whole) from these forces. Among the phenomena studied by the FBC are Altered World Events (AWEs), Altered Items, Objects of Power, and other realms and dimensions. The Oldest House, itself a paranatural location, serves as a containment and study facility for these types of phenomena.
I would love to do something involving this theme, granted I'm not married to it, and everything is open for discussion. Alternatively I am also open to it not even being revolved around the actual group/organization but instead something that would be cause for alarm. Such as a semi-large scale event or being. I would love to discuss this one!
Conspiracy
Based on an old show, and short horror series]
Conspiracy is somewhat akin to St John's hostel, though instead of following a desolate location, it takes place around a small town of just under 10,000 people. It's most notable features is that it sits right on the border of Oregon and Washington [though every resident claims it's only one of the two states.], it's lack of actual location on most maps and registries, and finally the amount of woodlands and nature that surrounds it. However there is a special thing about the small town. It is a hub for all things supernatural and horrific to come around. From beasts that claw their way into homes to feed on those who were unfortunate enough to lock their door, to small creatures that steal simple jewelry at night. From werewolves to a land shark, nothing is off limits. With the abnormal amount of death toll, it stays oddly populated for several unknown reasons. Some of the people in the town acknowledge what happens, while others pretend that it simply doesn't happen and put it to the back of their mind.
Even so, there are several sinister things going on that stick out just enough if you were to look for them. From a small wake that seems to always stay in business due to the horrible events, to a small diner which you can swear the meat doesn't taste like anything you've ever had before. Or maybe the fact that the small abandoned carnival in the woods turns on for one hour every Saturday night at midnight. And finally the biggest fact, being that it is home to several serial killers that rarely make the news.
The plot and story are open on this, but I do have several ideas in mind along with a character, though I am glad to hear any suggestions or ideas.
The Bayous A ‘Conspiracy’ location with a more eerie feel. This is still part of the conspiracy prompt, though gives the option of another setting that focuses on a more swamp based environment instead of something set in a more forest-like location. All the information given about background is still relevant!
Set in a different location but still part of the Conspiracy prompt, this focuses on another small town. Located in Louisiana. Unlike the other, this town is all about making a name for itself. A variety of claims seem to have made the area a local tourist attraction, despite the amount of gruesome deaths that occur constantly. Because of this, the local town set just a few miles down from the swamplands seems to have become bustling with activity. Attracting all kinds of attention from media outlets to horror enthusiasts who want to get as close to the real thing as possible. From horror themed carnivals to the local drive-in featuring horror movies, it seems that this town place has really leaned into the fame it’s gotten. Many of the locals also seem to share in this love that their home has gotten. Though even with all the tourism and names, very few locals actually wander into the swamps. And those that do make sure to be back by the time the sun is down.
Slaughterhouse
A recent string of mass disappearances cause a stir in the nation. The most recent being an entire town's worth of residents to have just disappeared. One of the biggest reveals being a drone shot that showed the words 'CROATOAN' spray painted along a police precinct. This immediately attracted the attention of the media from outside the nation. Because of this, the event was dubbed 'The Roanoke Disappearances.' after the famous colony that seemed to have shared quite a few things in common with the most recent.
However this story follows not those left to look behind the disappearances, but the disappeared. Awakening in an alternate world which could be described as a broken mirror of the original. People are forced to kill each other and extra dimensional beings and beasts told only in story for spot. Mostly to appease some kind of beast.
There is no meaning of fair. People of all kinds are forced to go up against each other. From the elderly being thrown into a death match between a pro wrestler, to an office worker having to fight a pack of mutated wolves. The word 'bloodbath' does well to define this.
---
While the plot revolves around those forced against each other in a broken world, it's more than open for discussion and nothing is set in stone! If you prefer them forced into a hostile world instead, I can happily work with that as well!
Blood and Snow
This one is based off of a small animatic called 'Let's Split Up.' I'm a huge fan of horror films and slasher films. Not to mention Native American mythology. The idea is that it follows two shape shifting wendigo during a blizzard in the mountains. Unlike previous winters, it's reached the lowest temperatures in the last 50 years, not to mention that everywhere seems to be snowed in. With a brutal storm the two are forced to co-exist as a bunch of camp counselors celebrate and party. Set in the 80's. The biggest difference is that one wants to slaughter and eat their way through them, while the other isn't so keen on killing off everyone immediately. While this does rely on two wendigo, you can easily have your primary be human.
Something based on slasher movies
If you've seen any slasher movie in your life, then you already know what's up. Looking for something that really hits the old school feel akin to the movies involving Jason, Micheal Myers, Ghost face, and all the like. Characters and ideas can be discussed, everything is on the table!
Something much more Lovecraftian or eldritch horror
I would love something that really leans into eldritch and general Lovecraft territory. Now word of caution, I am far from the most knowledgeable on this, though I do have the power of google on my side. Generally I love having it set anywhere from WWI all the way to modern day. Though personally post-WWII or post-Vietnam are my favorites but just a bit extra. I love seeing the characters out of their depth, against unreasonable odds, surrounded by monstrosities that should be non-existent. From deep ones and their semi-human offspring, to curses that have plagued families to generations. Not to mention all the cults we can get to see! The options are endless!
High rise
This plot revolves around what seems to be an undetermined number of floors in a high rise building. [The highest known is 160 just in case you want to know what the maximum possible was.] People awake starting on floor 1. With all exits locked, and nothing but the clothes on their backs people are forced to make their way up. Most stairs and elevators seem to be useless on most floors, instead forcing those to find what is a makeshift path to the next floor. Every window seems to have been blacked out, and heavily reinforced, leaving minimal lighting unless whoever designed the hellscape sees fit to add more. Each floor has some sort of sick game that those who make it up are forced to survive. These are not tied to the rules of reality. From sicking wolves, to dealing with the undead. Weapons, supplies, and everything else is scarce. Some floors seem to be unhinged from reality, spanning what could be miles or even new environments that are impossible to be contained within a building. The farther in our characters make it, the less things can be explained.
A lot of this is up to us and how we want to decide things. We can keep it ground in reality, but I’d personally prefer it if we didn’t. We can discuss what we want to see from the plot and general settings for the floors. Not even the sky is our limit!
A quiet little town [Based on Silent Hill.]
Several strangers wake up in a small town inhabited by locals. With an eerie mist that seems to block any bit of vision just past the woods, they are forced to figure out how they got there, and why they are there. The residents of the town seem to be very few, but those that are there belong to a cult that worships a monstrosity that seems to also be hunting down the unlucky survivors.
Hostile Territory Inspired by the series ‘Manifest Destiny’ and ‘Primal’ This prompt follows a pre-modern fantasy horror setting. Most notably during anywhere from ‘1000’ AD to the early 1800’s. It also allows for an ‘AU’ of our world’s history, so don’t feel the need to follow specifics if you want to have fun! This can also be set in another setting and timeline, if you would rather a vibe much more akin to ‘Primal.’ This follows settlers and their expedition to America, Or an expedition of the Western US after it’s purchase, all the way to the time of the Oregon trail. The idea is that this follows unfamiliar territory, hostile with natives and other problems. Though many unreal, and abnormal. From beasts that should never exist, to carnivore plant life and even hive mind infections. It follows those trying to survive and reach the end, with no option to turn back. The idea is that this is unfamiliar territory. The big three options are during the early 1000’s AD, where the vikings Discovered America. Or during an alternate history Expedition of the Louisiana purchase. And of course there Oregon trail. Please note that we have more freedom, and we can even have it set somewhere else as mentioned above if you’re looking for a much different setting or something more akin to ‘Primal.’ We can always discuss this, and there are A LOT of options on the table!
Last stop. Inspired by bloodride [Which I never even watched, just saw some art of it.] This prompt revolves around those who find themselves trapped after boarding what should have been a normal bus just after midnight. Their reasons are all different, but without much matter. What does is where it’s going. The bus seems to be untethered to reality. Without any real driver, it trudges forward through an uncharted route. Those that look outside will see something different. From desolate wastelands, to ruined cities. The bus seems to always stop at a new location, a doorway into a different world. All with some kind of horror. Some that seem to be a desolate desert with no end in sight, from those that seem to be bustling with people The bus often demands fuel at these stops before once again continuing. In most cases, it ranges from something simple such as gasoline, to less realistic options such as simple jugs or water. Though in other cases, less savory demands are made, such as blood from a specific animal species or even those of the living. The bus seems to have no set times, with some drives between worlds taking merely minutes, while others have gone for almost a whole week. The most notable thing is that despite having no driver, there is a disembodied voice which acts as a guide in a way. It answers most questions, and even has something to chime in at times. The voice has promised those that make it to the end salvation, but refuses to give more information than that about their destination. The only light is that the bus acts as a safe haven, along with a good couple meter circle around it. --- This prompt personally isn’t the most detailed, as I prefer to go into specifics and come up with circumstances with my partner.
Terror Infinity Inspired by the series of the same name.
For those who are unfamiliar with the series [which I won’t be surprised if most are, it’s not exactly big, and it’s foreign.] It follows those who are forced into “God’s Dimension.” Which happens to be an endlessly moving speed rail that has quite a few rooms. The whole idea revolves around that groups of people are brought into this mysterious world and forced into famous horror movies, games, and other settings with a clear goal and purpose to survive. The idea is that they get ‘1000’ points for surviving a single event, and they have no choice in avoiding it. The reason for these points? It cost 50,000 to go back. Which means that at a minimum 50 ‘events’ must be survived. Though that’s only if not a single point is spent. What can they be spent on? The most common seems to be immediate healing upon return, which can vary from only a couple points for smaller wounds like cuts and damage, to up to a couple hundred for large scale wounds like an amputated appendage. With nearly a thousand being used to bring someone back from the brink of death. Though those can also be used to increase ‘stats’ such as physical strength, buy weapons, ammunition, and all kinds of things. Even supernatural abilities. Though that doesn’t make anything easier, the more movies the group survives, the harder they get. There is quite a bit more to this, but I’ll save that for DMs in case anyone is actually interested!
The zombie apocalypse
I have a ton of zombie apocalypse ideas as well! They will also be listed below.
1) Welcome to the freak show!
If you've ever played any zombie video game, there is a high chance that there is more than just your run of the mill 'zombie' from undead that seemed staggeringly strong, to ones that explode when you get close. These mutant freaks seem to be an uncommon breed, but by no means rare! I would love to focus on a world that includes these mistakes of nature and much more!
Some examples: Days gone, Dying light, Left 4 dead, The last of us, Dead island, And more!
2) Second generation survivors!
A generation is typically 25-30 years depending on who you ask. For this I'm specifically looking at an apocalypse that takes place anywhere around 50-60 years after it had become global. Meaning our characters [And most likely their parents.] would be born into a world that was already brought to ruins. This would mean that the undead would not be considered the same to them. Zombies seem closer to a wolf or rabid dog than a person who has passed away and reanimated. People have become used to their lives in communities and actively have little fear for the undead, typically leaving them alone.
3) A family favorite game show!
If you've ever heard of 'Dead Rising 2' then you might be familiar with TK and his incredibly popular show 'Terror is Reality.' This idea takes a bit of inspiration from it. In a world where the apocalypse was just narrowly avoided, cities and towns which had infections spread or breakout would often be quarantined then cleaned out by professional companies. In comes a new reality show all about survival. With a $100,000 cash grand prize for winning, players must survive an entire year in all matter of places. From private islands that are full of starving infected, to the quarantined streets of Hollywood. The catch? Death is around every corner. With no medical relief staff, and other players gunning it for the money. Will you risk it all for the hundred grand? Or split the winnings and play it safe?
4) Time's Arrow!
Who said the apocalypse has to be set in the modern days? I would be just as happy having it set in a historical time period. Peak of Rome? Sure! Vikings fighting back draugr? Of course! There are so many choices to choose from! The sky's our limit! [Please note, I'm primarily looking for time periods before guns advanced past muskets and flintlocks.]
5) Through the fire.
When the apocalypse initially rained down, everything of course went to hell. But where was the military during this time? The idea follows a small squadron of soldiers and civilians trying to make it across an apocalyptic united states of America in hopes of finding a cruise ship that has been giving out radio signals for the past several weeks. The catch? They are in need of a person who knows how to sail a ship long-term in hopes of reaching the Hawaiian islands. A member of the navy who happens to hold this specific skill is accompanying them. Though many trials await them on their journey.
6) Through the unknown.
Not all zombies are caused because of a virus. Some are products of a curse or a bokocaplata. This voodoo/black magic always has a source, and our characters are part of the expedition team to put an end to it! Of course several cliche characters are perfectly fitting for this idea. From the ex-marine who's now a mercenary, to the science loving geek who knows just about everything that's happening. The effects for the 'apocalypse' in this idea can be limited to just a single city/town all the way to the entire country/hemisphere. This focuses greatly on being in a developing country or tribal land!
7) Abandoned colonies.
After seven decades of colonizing mars, humanity found its future bright. With new innovations and technology only thought to be of science fiction constantly being developed, they started to become self reliant. Dome shaped colonies fitting families, and all kinds of scientists seemed to be doing exceptionally well. Though things take a turn for the worse when communications with earth shut down along with several other colonies.
8) What comes after.
I would love something set ‘after’ the initial apocalypse has come and gone. With most undead finally having withered away, minus a few large groups here and there that are in quarantine zones that have been closed off or become inaccessible by any means for the undead to escape. [For example 20 foot walls build around that would require someone to climb a ladder and such. Not the best example, but you get the idea.]
Pretty much this plot would focus on what comes after the initial apocalypse. The rebuilding of America [or another country] after things have come and gone leaving the world scattered. The time since the initial apocalypse started can be anywhere from a good 4-75 years. [4 is assuming the bodies decay at a normal decay rate, leaving them pretty much gone after 4 years. Anything above that would more closely follow the idea that they aren’t bound to normal decay like most zombie movies or shows seem to keep as a factor.]
The finer plot details can be discussed in DMs, but I would love to really see how new societies have taken to handling things in the world. From ones that have pretty laid back laws and demands, to ones that are so strict that even stealing can lead to a death penalty. I would also love to see some form of ‘universal currency’ but we can always discuss and plan that out later.
9) Ground Zero
Inspired by #Alive
While I love the apocalypse once it’s been established, this prompt specifically follows our characters from day one, ground zero. Where the first of infections took place, leading to the mass spread. I have two options for how it starts in this situation. The first is by physically spreading the normal way, which will have more of a gradual turn across the states and world as things go in a downward spiral. In this situation, we’ll see our characters traveling across America [or another country] to find a safe haven. Some places seemingly free entirely of infection, and others that haven’t quite heard the news. Where money is still being used, and our characters are able to find a sense of normality, to places that have no human life left, and are littered with the infected. The second being that everyone with AB- blood type [Around less than 1% of the population.] are immediately infected by a mass mutation of rabies, while those of other blood types only react to the normal way of spreading. Because of this, infected pop up pretty much everywhere within 24 hours, leading to a mass infection that overcomes the world easily within a week or two at most. Depending on which we go with, it’ll leave a very different world. The second will have a lack of normality and safe havens, along with real government response, while the first will have quarantine zones, carpet bombings, and much more! We can always discuss it!
10) And the rest!
Of course I am open to many other ideas, and not just what is on the list! If you have a specific one in mind, go ahead and tell me! I'm more than happy to hear you out!
That's all the ideas I have for anything horror based now, but feel free to let me know if any interest you, or you have your own ideas as well!
Fantasy:
So when it comes to fantasy, I’m primarily looking for a roleplay partner who's interested in something set in the world of Dungeons and Dragons or at least a world with many fantasy elements akin to it! While I'm more than happy to take elements and 'homebrew' races, magic, and more, I do generally want the idea to be set in a world of that setting. I have a small couple of ideas in mind, but am more than happy to hear out any you may be holding!
While fantasy is my primary interest, I am open to all sorts of it timeline/era wise. From modern to medieval, to anything in between! Even sci-fi/cyberpunk works with me! Please let me know what your preferences are so I can take that into account!
I also have nearly no triggers, so don’t be afraid to come at me full force! Though if something is too much for me, I will let you know! I will gladly hear out yours as well and make sure that no elements akin to those are involved in the roleplay!
Next off, I have several characters ready to be used, all various races. I am more than happy to let my partner choose which one interests them the most! Please note that none of them are required to be used, but it’s my primary interest in using them!
When it comes to romance involved, I do slowburn, fast burn, middle ground, and anything else in between! I’m also fine with other situations like arranged marriages, already together, etc. Please let me know your preference on this one as well so I can take it into account while we plot/world build!
As for my partner, I'm fine with a fair amount of races.
Below are those races [off the top of my head.] Please note I am open to ones not on the list, this is just from a quick jot down. Feel free to ask about any you may be interested in!
- Human
- Most types of Elven
- Tiefling
- Genasi
- Half-orc
- Aasimar
- Triton
- Yuan-Ti pureblood
- Kalashtar
- Changeling
- Simic Hybrid
- Vedalken
-OC races
- Most humanoid races in general.
I enjoy both light and dark themes, so feel free to come for either! Please note I will NOT play the role of a GM, looking for a partner, not a player
I’m also more than willing to discuss other worlds and do things other than high fantasy. Low fantasy is welcome as well!
Sci-fi/Cyberpunk
Another genre I love! While I generally enjoy having multiple races in sci-fi/cyberpunk, it is far from a requirement. Much like fantasy, I do have a cast of characters that can be used, but none of them are required to be thrown in!
For this I generally enjoy all kinds of plots, from detectives/mysteries to hardcore action. Whether it’s laser swords, high tech guns, or body augmentations, I’m always interested in most variations of this genre!
Other genres
I’m also open to nearly all other genres. Modern. Super-heroes. Slice of life. Romance. Drama. Angst. Historical. And much, much more! If you have any specific plots or genres I haven’t gone into, don’t be afraid to hit me up and ask me about them! I normally would write more, but at the moment this ad is already quite long, and I still have to go into the fandoms and myself.

We can always discuss shipping and such in DMs/Chat. Don’t be afraid to ask about a fandom or two not on the list, as I often end up not including every single one I’m a fan of [there is quite a bit!
While all those fandoms are open, I do have a couple plots in mind for a few of them!
DC:
I would LOVE something set with the Suicide Squad/Task Force X. Preferably with an OC that I recently have gotten designed, as I don't really write any canon villains for my primary.
Devil May Cry:
I'm thinking that it should take place post DMC 5 (Most likely several months at least). While I don't mind if you play canon or OC, I'll be having my primary be Nero. I would love it if after the events of DMC5 that things involving devils became much more common knowledge! Possibly leading to the infamous 'DMC' getting quite a bit more work and calls, possibly even to the point where they are overwhelmed.
Borderlands:
I'm more than fine with OCs, but I heavily prefer canon characters. As it goes, I'm looking for anything in the borderlands universe. So all the games/settings are open to me. While I do want something based POST-BORDERLANDS 3 or AU Borderlands 3. It isn't a must. I can do anything from Borderlands, Borderlands 2, Borderlands: TPS, or TFTB!
In the case of writing a canon character, I'd heavily prefer August, or Rhys.
Star Wars:
So for timeline wise up to the 'Mandalorian' is fine. I'd prefer if it was set during the time of the inquisitors. In the case of me playing an OC I can gladly do a Sith or a Jedi. Possibly even a force sensitive bounty hunter.
In the case of me writing Cal kestis, I'd prefer if it took place not that long after the events of SWJ:FO. Though this can be discussed.
AND MORE!
I have plenty of more plots for fandoms, but the ad is getting quite long already, so I'll leave it here!
About me:
A bit about me! I'm just your regular dude who enjoys camping, hiking, horror movies, coffee, and several other things, but I can tell you about that later! I'm currently kicking it in the east coast of the United States, which means my timezone is EST. I'm normally free any time after 2-4 pm [EST] from Monday-Friday. And then weekends I'm pretty active as well. When it comes to post length I tend to match my partner, so whether I'm giving 10 sentences or 10 paragraphs, I'm always able! I can do novella length happily! I'm 21 and have no triggers, and am willing to delve into more mature or sensitive themes, though if something is a bit much for me, I'll let you know.
I love talking OOC with partners and generally try to keep a good friendship with them if they're down for it. I won't share any info about my real life, as I've had stalkers in the past. So if I don't show you pictures of myself, or won't talk about certain aspects, please don't be offended.
I actually have commissioned art for A LOT of my characters, and am more than willing to show them! I also prefer to stick to discord when it comes to a medium/platform, but I'm more than willing to discuss other options. I will not use kik/telegram. Please don't ask.
Thanks for reading, if you are interested, simply DM me!
DO NOT MESSAGE ME ABOUT YOUR GROUP/SERVER! I AM ONLY LOOKING FOR A 1x1 ROLEPLAY!
submitted by RainForTheParade to WrittenRoleplay [link] [comments]


2020.10.15 18:06 RainForTheParade [M4F] Looking for a long-term roleplay partner! Tons of HORROR and ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE prompts inside! Open to ALL genres! Fandoms are also listed if you prefer! Canon and OC welcome!

DO NOT MESSAGE ME ABOUT YOUR GROUP OR SERVER! THIS IS FOR 1x1's only! I prefer discord, and do not use kik, or Reddit PMs!
This ad is huge, so I’ve cut up genres into sections. The largest is the first section which revolves around horror plots I have, feel free to skip around to find your preferences. If I don’t have a genre or fandom listed, that doesn’t mean I’m not open to it!
Hello! I'm currently looking for a long-term RP partner who enjoys original world or fandom based RPs! While I have a couple ideas, I am more than happy to hear out my partners. Below I’ll start with the horror genre, but if that’s not your thing, feel free to skip around to fandoms or other genres!
Please note that I am looking for romance as well for most of my plots/roleplays, though I only write MxF in which I play Male. If you aren’t wanting romance, let me know ahead of time as to certain plots I am willing to do without, while others I’m not.
Horror:
St John's Hostel
This is an idea I have that centers around the employee's of a hostel that sits almost 15 miles away from the nearest town. It sits on no maps, and googling it will give little to no results. The premise is that all things supernatural and abnormal seem to happen. Whether it be weird guests, serial killers, cannibals, Bigfoot/Sasquatches, or something else just as abnormal. The employee's are more than aware and accustomed to things that go on. Such as 'avoid the screams from the basement that happen every night from 2:11 am to 3:49 am.' Or 'Don't leave meat outside for the wildlife on a Wednesday night.' Then there is the high mortality rate of customers. It's not unlikely to find a man turned into mincemeat, or see some wild beast making its way off with a body. Though it seems most employees are exempt from these cruel fates, long as they know what they're doing.
In comes your character, a new employee working there for whatever reason, and completely oblivious to the state of things and what's happening. Their background and reasons for being there are 100% up to you, so long as they aren't familiar with the abnormalities.
Green light
[Based on the world of 'Control', 'Alan Wake', 'Quantum Break', and several others with similar themes]
So while this is far from the most thought out idea I have, it's one I would love to utilize. Generally another example people have added it to is 'SCP.' which is also a semi-accurate portrayal.
The Federal Bureau of Control (FBC) is a clandestine United States government organization tasked with the containment, study, and control of paranatural phenomena. Operating on a national scale, the FBC investigates events and objects which violate the scientific laws of nature, with the goal of understanding and controlling these elements. The Bureau's headquarters is a mysterious Brutalist skyscraper in New York City known as the Oldest House, which exists outside of ordinary reality.
The FBC is responsible for both the scientific study of paranatural elements and the protection of the nation (and humanity as a whole) from these forces. Among the phenomena studied by the FBC are Altered World Events (AWEs), Altered Items, Objects of Power, and other realms and dimensions. The Oldest House, itself a paranatural location, serves as a containment and study facility for these types of phenomena.
I would love to do something involving this theme, granted I'm not married to it, and everything is open for discussion. Alternatively I am also open to it not even being revolved around the actual group/organization but instead something that would be cause for alarm. Such as a semi-large scale event or being. I would love to discuss this one!
Conspiracy
Based on an old show, and short horror series]
Conspiracy is somewhat akin to St John's hostel, though instead of following a desolate location, it takes place around a small town of just under 10,000 people. It's most notable features is that it sits right on the border of Oregon and Washington [though every resident claims it's only one of the two states.], it's lack of actual location on most maps and registries, and finally the amount of woodlands and nature that surrounds it. However there is a special thing about the small town. It is a hub for all things supernatural and horrific to come around. From beasts that claw their way into homes to feed on those who were unfortunate enough to lock their door, to small creatures that steal simple jewelry at night. From werewolves to a land shark, nothing is off limits. With the abnormal amount of death toll, it stays oddly populated for several unknown reasons. Some of the people in the town acknowledge what happens, while others pretend that it simply doesn't happen and put it to the back of their mind.
Even so, there are several sinister things going on that stick out just enough if you were to look for them. From a small wake that seems to always stay in business due to the horrible events, to a small diner which you can swear the meat doesn't taste like anything you've ever had before. Or maybe the fact that the small abandoned carnival in the woods turns on for one hour every Saturday night at midnight. And finally the biggest fact, being that it is home to several serial killers that rarely make the news.
The plot and story are open on this, but I do have several ideas in mind along with a character, though I am glad to hear any suggestions or ideas.
The Bayous A ‘Conspiracy’ location with a more eerie feel. This is still part of the conspiracy prompt, though gives the option of another setting that focuses on a more swamp based environment instead of something set in a more forest-like location. All the information given about background is still relevant!
Set in a different location but still part of the Conspiracy prompt, this focuses on another small town. Located in Louisiana. Unlike the other, this town is all about making a name for itself. A variety of claims seem to have made the area a local tourist attraction, despite the amount of gruesome deaths that occur constantly. Because of this, the local town set just a few miles down from the swamplands seems to have become bustling with activity. Attracting all kinds of attention from media outlets to horror enthusiasts who want to get as close to the real thing as possible. From horror themed carnivals to the local drive-in featuring horror movies, it seems that this town place has really leaned into the fame it’s gotten. Many of the locals also seem to share in this love that their home has gotten. Though even with all the tourism and names, very few locals actually wander into the swamps. And those that do make sure to be back by the time the sun is down.
Slaughterhouse
A recent string of mass disappearances cause a stir in the nation. The most recent being an entire town's worth of residents to have just disappeared. One of the biggest reveals being a drone shot that showed the words 'CROATOAN' spray painted along a police precinct. This immediately attracted the attention of the media from outside the nation. Because of this, the event was dubbed 'The Roanoke Disappearances.' after the famous colony that seemed to have shared quite a few things in common with the most recent.
However this story follows not those left to look behind the disappearances, but the disappeared. Awakening in an alternate world which could be described as a broken mirror of the original. People are forced to kill each other and extra dimensional beings and beasts told only in story for spot. Mostly to appease some kind of beast.
There is no meaning of fair. People of all kinds are forced to go up against each other. From the elderly being thrown into a death match between a pro wrestler, to an office worker having to fight a pack of mutated wolves. The word 'bloodbath' does well to define this.
---
While the plot revolves around those forced against each other in a broken world, it's more than open for discussion and nothing is set in stone! If you prefer them forced into a hostile world instead, I can happily work with that as well!
Blood and Snow
This one is based off of a small animatic called 'Let's Split Up.' I'm a huge fan of horror films and slasher films. Not to mention Native American mythology. The idea is that it follows two shape shifting wendigo during a blizzard in the mountains. Unlike previous winters, it's reached the lowest temperatures in the last 50 years, not to mention that everywhere seems to be snowed in. With a brutal storm the two are forced to co-exist as a bunch of camp counselors celebrate and party. Set in the 80's. The biggest difference is that one wants to slaughter and eat their way through them, while the other isn't so keen on killing off everyone immediately. While this does rely on two wendigo, you can easily have your primary be human.
Something based on slasher movies
If you've seen any slasher movie in your life, then you already know what's up. Looking for something that really hits the old school feel akin to the movies involving Jason, Micheal Myers, Ghost face, and all the like. Characters and ideas can be discussed, everything is on the table!
Something much more Lovecraftian or eldritch horror
I would love something that really leans into eldritch and general Lovecraft territory. Now word of caution, I am far from the most knowledgeable on this, though I do have the power of google on my side. Generally I love having it set anywhere from WWI all the way to modern day. Though personally post-WWII or post-Vietnam are my favorites but just a bit extra. I love seeing the characters out of their depth, against unreasonable odds, surrounded by monstrosities that should be non-existent. From deep ones and their semi-human offspring, to curses that have plagued families to generations. Not to mention all the cults we can get to see! The options are endless!
High rise
This plot revolves around what seems to be an undetermined number of floors in a high rise building. [The highest known is 160 just in case you want to know what the maximum possible was.] People awake starting on floor 1. With all exits locked, and nothing but the clothes on their backs people are forced to make their way up. Most stairs and elevators seem to be useless on most floors, instead forcing those to find what is a makeshift path to the next floor. Every window seems to have been blacked out, and heavily reinforced, leaving minimal lighting unless whoever designed the hellscape sees fit to add more. Each floor has some sort of sick game that those who make it up are forced to survive. These are not tied to the rules of reality. From sicking wolves, to dealing with the undead. Weapons, supplies, and everything else is scarce. Some floors seem to be unhinged from reality, spanning what could be miles or even new environments that are impossible to be contained within a building. The farther in our characters make it, the less things can be explained.
A lot of this is up to us and how we want to decide things. We can keep it ground in reality, but I’d personally prefer it if we didn’t. We can discuss what we want to see from the plot and general settings for the floors. Not even the sky is our limit!
A quiet little town [Based on Silent Hill.]
Several strangers wake up in a small town inhabited by locals. With an eerie mist that seems to block any bit of vision just past the woods, they are forced to figure out how they got there, and why they are there. The residents of the town seem to be very few, but those that are there belong to a cult that worships a monstrosity that seems to also be hunting down the unlucky survivors.
Hostile Territory Inspired by the series ‘Manifest Destiny’ and ‘Primal’ This prompt follows a pre-modern fantasy horror setting. Most notably during anywhere from ‘1000’ AD to the early 1800’s. It also allows for an ‘AU’ of our world’s history, so don’t feel the need to follow specifics if you want to have fun! This can also be set in another setting and timeline, if you would rather a vibe much more akin to ‘Primal.’ This follows settlers and their expedition to America, Or an expedition of the Western US after it’s purchase, all the way to the time of the Oregon trail. The idea is that this follows unfamiliar territory, hostile with natives and other problems. Though many unreal, and abnormal. From beasts that should never exist, to carnivore plant life and even hive mind infections. It follows those trying to survive and reach the end, with no option to turn back. The idea is that this is unfamiliar territory. The big three options are during the early 1000’s AD, where the vikings Discovered America. Or during an alternate history Expedition of the Louisiana purchase. And of course there Oregon trail. Please note that we have more freedom, and we can even have it set somewhere else as mentioned above if you’re looking for a much different setting or something more akin to ‘Primal.’ We can always discuss this, and there are A LOT of options on the table!
Last stop. Inspired by bloodride [Which I never even watched, just saw some art of it.] This prompt revolves around those who find themselves trapped after boarding what should have been a normal bus just after midnight. Their reasons are all different, but without much matter. What does is where it’s going. The bus seems to be untethered to reality. Without any real driver, it trudges forward through an uncharted route. Those that look outside will see something different. From desolate wastelands, to ruined cities. The bus seems to always stop at a new location, a doorway into a different world. All with some kind of horror. Some that seem to be a desolate desert with no end in sight, from those that seem to be bustling with people The bus often demands fuel at these stops before once again continuing. In most cases, it ranges from something simple such as gasoline, to less realistic options such as simple jugs or water. Though in other cases, less savory demands are made, such as blood from a specific animal species or even those of the living. The bus seems to have no set times, with some drives between worlds taking merely minutes, while others have gone for almost a whole week. The most notable thing is that despite having no driver, there is a disembodied voice which acts as a guide in a way. It answers most questions, and even has something to chime in at times. The voice has promised those that make it to the end salvation, but refuses to give more information than that about their destination. The only light is that the bus acts as a safe haven, along with a good couple meter circle around it. --- This prompt personally isn’t the most detailed, as I prefer to go into specifics and come up with circumstances with my partner.
Terror Infinity Inspired by the series of the same name.
For those who are unfamiliar with the series [which I won’t be surprised if most are, it’s not exactly big, and it’s foreign.] It follows those who are forced into “God’s Dimension.” Which happens to be an endlessly moving speed rail that has quite a few rooms. The whole idea revolves around that groups of people are brought into this mysterious world and forced into famous horror movies, games, and other settings with a clear goal and purpose to survive. The idea is that they get ‘1000’ points for surviving a single event, and they have no choice in avoiding it. The reason for these points? It cost 50,000 to go back. Which means that at a minimum 50 ‘events’ must be survived. Though that’s only if not a single point is spent. What can they be spent on? The most common seems to be immediate healing upon return, which can vary from only a couple points for smaller wounds like cuts and damage, to up to a couple hundred for large scale wounds like an amputated appendage. With nearly a thousand being used to bring someone back from the brink of death. Though those can also be used to increase ‘stats’ such as physical strength, buy weapons, ammunition, and all kinds of things. Even supernatural abilities. Though that doesn’t make anything easier, the more movies the group survives, the harder they get. There is quite a bit more to this, but I’ll save that for DMs in case anyone is actually interested!
The zombie apocalypse
I have a ton of zombie apocalypse ideas as well! They will also be listed below.
1) Welcome to the freak show!
If you've ever played any zombie video game, there is a high chance that there is more than just your run of the mill 'zombie' from undead that seemed staggeringly strong, to ones that explode when you get close. These mutant freaks seem to be an uncommon breed, but by no means rare! I would love to focus on a world that includes these mistakes of nature and much more!
Some examples: Days gone, Dying light, Left 4 dead, The last of us, Dead island, And more!
2) Second generation survivors!
A generation is typically 25-30 years depending on who you ask. For this I'm specifically looking at an apocalypse that takes place anywhere around 50-60 years after it had become global. Meaning our characters [And most likely their parents.] would be born into a world that was already brought to ruins. This would mean that the undead would not be considered the same to them. Zombies seem closer to a wolf or rabid dog than a person who has passed away and reanimated. People have become used to their lives in communities and actively have little fear for the undead, typically leaving them alone.
3) A family favorite game show!
If you've ever heard of 'Dead Rising 2' then you might be familiar with TK and his incredibly popular show 'Terror is Reality.' This idea takes a bit of inspiration from it. In a world where the apocalypse was just narrowly avoided, cities and towns which had infections spread or breakout would often be quarantined then cleaned out by professional companies. In comes a new reality show all about survival. With a $100,000 cash grand prize for winning, players must survive an entire year in all matter of places. From private islands that are full of starving infected, to the quarantined streets of Hollywood. The catch? Death is around every corner. With no medical relief staff, and other players gunning it for the money. Will you risk it all for the hundred grand? Or split the winnings and play it safe?
4) Time's Arrow!
Who said the apocalypse has to be set in the modern days? I would be just as happy having it set in a historical time period. Peak of Rome? Sure! Vikings fighting back draugr? Of course! There are so many choices to choose from! The sky's our limit! [Please note, I'm primarily looking for time periods before guns advanced past muskets and flintlocks.]
5) Through the fire.
When the apocalypse initially rained down, everything of course went to hell. But where was the military during this time? The idea follows a small squadron of soldiers and civilians trying to make it across an apocalyptic united states of America in hopes of finding a cruise ship that has been giving out radio signals for the past several weeks. The catch? They are in need of a person who knows how to sail a ship long-term in hopes of reaching the Hawaiian islands. A member of the navy who happens to hold this specific skill is accompanying them. Though many trials await them on their journey.
6) Through the unknown.
Not all zombies are caused because of a virus. Some are products of a curse or a bokocaplata. This voodoo/black magic always has a source, and our characters are part of the expedition team to put an end to it! Of course several cliche characters are perfectly fitting for this idea. From the ex-marine who's now a mercenary, to the science loving geek who knows just about everything that's happening. The effects for the 'apocalypse' in this idea can be limited to just a single city/town all the way to the entire country/hemisphere. This focuses greatly on being in a developing country or tribal land!
7) Abandoned colonies.
After seven decades of colonizing mars, humanity found its future bright. With new innovations and technology only thought to be of science fiction constantly being developed, they started to become self reliant. Dome shaped colonies fitting families, and all kinds of scientists seemed to be doing exceptionally well. Though things take a turn for the worse when communications with earth shut down along with several other colonies.
8) What comes after.
I would love something set ‘after’ the initial apocalypse has come and gone. With most undead finally having withered away, minus a few large groups here and there that are in quarantine zones that have been closed off or become inaccessible by any means for the undead to escape. [For example 20 foot walls build around that would require someone to climb a ladder and such. Not the best example, but you get the idea.]
Pretty much this plot would focus on what comes after the initial apocalypse. The rebuilding of America [or another country] after things have come and gone leaving the world scattered. The time since the initial apocalypse started can be anywhere from a good 4-75 years. [4 is assuming the bodies decay at a normal decay rate, leaving them pretty much gone after 4 years. Anything above that would more closely follow the idea that they aren’t bound to normal decay like most zombie movies or shows seem to keep as a factor.]
The finer plot details can be discussed in DMs, but I would love to really see how new societies have taken to handling things in the world. From ones that have pretty laid back laws and demands, to ones that are so strict that even stealing can lead to a death penalty. I would also love to see some form of ‘universal currency’ but we can always discuss and plan that out later.
9) Ground Zero
Inspired by #Alive
While I love the apocalypse once it’s been established, this prompt specifically follows our characters from day one, ground zero. Where the first of infections took place, leading to the mass spread. I have two options for how it starts in this situation. The first is by physically spreading the normal way, which will have more of a gradual turn across the states and world as things go in a downward spiral. In this situation, we’ll see our characters traveling across America [or another country] to find a safe haven. Some places seemingly free entirely of infection, and others that haven’t quite heard the news. Where money is still being used, and our characters are able to find a sense of normality, to places that have no human life left, and are littered with the infected. The second being that everyone with AB- blood type [Around less than 1% of the population.] are immediately infected by a mass mutation of rabies, while those of other blood types only react to the normal way of spreading. Because of this, infected pop up pretty much everywhere within 24 hours, leading to a mass infection that overcomes the world easily within a week or two at most. Depending on which we go with, it’ll leave a very different world. The second will have a lack of normality and safe havens, along with real government response, while the first will have quarantine zones, carpet bombings, and much more! We can always discuss it!
10) And the rest!
Of course I am open to many other ideas, and not just what is on the list! If you have a specific one in mind, go ahead and tell me! I'm more than happy to hear you out!
That's all the ideas I have for anything horror based now, but feel free to let me know if any interest you, or you have your own ideas as well!
Fantasy:
So when it comes to fantasy, I’m primarily looking for a roleplay partner who's interested in something set in the world of Dungeons and Dragons or at least a world with many fantasy elements akin to it! While I'm more than happy to take elements and 'homebrew' races, magic, and more, I do generally want the idea to be set in a world of that setting. I have a small couple of ideas in mind, but am more than happy to hear out any you may be holding!
While fantasy is my primary interest, I am open to all sorts of it timeline/era wise. From modern to medieval, to anything in between! Even sci-fi/cyberpunk works with me! Please let me know what your preferences are so I can take that into account!
I also have nearly no triggers, so don’t be afraid to come at me full force! Though if something is too much for me, I will let you know! I will gladly hear out yours as well and make sure that no elements akin to those are involved in the roleplay!
Next off, I have several characters ready to be used, all various races. I am more than happy to let my partner choose which one interests them the most! Please note that none of them are required to be used, but it’s my primary interest in using them!
When it comes to romance involved, I do slowburn, fast burn, middle ground, and anything else in between! I’m also fine with other situations like arranged marriages, already together, etc. Please let me know your preference on this one as well so I can take it into account while we plot/world build!
As for my partner, I'm fine with a fair amount of races.
Below are those races [off the top of my head.] Please note I am open to ones not on the list, this is just from a quick jot down. Feel free to ask about any you may be interested in!
- Human
- Most types of Elven
- Tiefling
- Genasi
- Half-orc
- Aasimar
- Triton
- Yuan-Ti pureblood
- Kalashtar
- Changeling
- Simic Hybrid
- Vedalken
-OC races
- Most humanoid races in general.
I enjoy both light and dark themes, so feel free to come for either! Please note I will NOT play the role of a GM, looking for a partner, not a player
I’m also more than willing to discuss other worlds and do things other than high fantasy. Low fantasy is welcome as well!
Sci-fi/Cyberpunk
Another genre I love! While I generally enjoy having multiple races in sci-fi/cyberpunk, it is far from a requirement. Much like fantasy, I do have a cast of characters that can be used, but none of them are required to be thrown in!
For this I generally enjoy all kinds of plots, from detectives/mysteries to hardcore action. Whether it’s laser swords, high tech guns, or body augmentations, I’m always interested in most variations of this genre!
Other genres
I’m also open to nearly all other genres. Modern. Super-heroes. Slice of life. Romance. Drama. Angst. Historical. And much, much more! If you have any specific plots or genres I haven’t gone into, don’t be afraid to hit me up and ask me about them! I normally would write more, but at the moment this ad is already quite long, and I still have to go into the fandoms and myself.
Fandoms:

We can always discuss shipping and such in DMs/Chat. Don’t be afraid to ask about a fandom or two not on the list, as I often end up not including every single one I’m a fan of [there is quite a bit!
While all those fandoms are open, I do have a couple plots in mind for a few of them!
DC:
I would LOVE something set with the Suicide Squad/Task Force X. Preferably with an OC that I recently have gotten designed, as I don't really write any canon villains for my primary.
Devil May Cry:
I'm thinking that it should take place post DMC 5 (Most likely several months at least). While I don't mind if you play canon or OC, I'll be having my primary be Nero. I would love it if after the events of DMC5 that things involving devils became much more common knowledge! Possibly leading to the infamous 'DMC' getting quite a bit more work and calls, possibly even to the point where they are overwhelmed.
Borderlands:
I'm more than fine with OCs, but I heavily prefer canon characters. As it goes, I'm looking for anything in the borderlands universe. So all the games/settings are open to me. While I do want something based POST-BORDERLANDS 3 or AU Borderlands 3. It isn't a must. I can do anything from Borderlands, Borderlands 2, Borderlands: TPS, or TFTB!
In the case of writing a canon character, I'd heavily prefer August, or Rhys.
Star Wars:
So for timeline wise up to the 'Mandalorian' is fine. I'd prefer if it was set during the time of the inquisitors. In the case of me playing an OC I can gladly do a Sith or a Jedi. Possibly even a force sensitive bounty hunter.
In the case of me writing Cal kestis, I'd prefer if it took place not that long after the events of SWJ:FO. Though this can be discussed.
AND MORE!
I have plenty of more plots for fandoms, but the ad is getting quite long already, so I'll leave it here!
About me:
A bit about me! I'm just your regular dude who enjoys camping, hiking, horror movies, coffee, and several other things, but I can tell you about that later! I'm currently kicking it in the east coast of the United States, which means my timezone is EST. I'm normally free any time after 2-4 pm [EST] from Monday-Friday. And then weekends I'm pretty active as well. When it comes to post length I tend to match my partner, so whether I'm giving 10 sentences or 10 paragraphs, I'm always able! I can do novella length happily! I'm 21 and have no triggers, and am willing to delve into more mature or sensitive themes, though if something is a bit much for me, I'll let you know.
I love talking OOC with partners and generally try to keep a good friendship with them if they're down for it. I won't share any info about my real life, as I've had stalkers in the past. So if I don't show you pictures of myself, or won't talk about certain aspects, please don't be offended.
I actually have commissioned art for A LOT of my characters, and am more than willing to show them! I also prefer to stick to discord when it comes to a medium/platform, but I'm more than willing to discuss other options. I will not use kik/telegram. Please don't ask.
Thanks for reading, if you are interested, simply DM me!
DO NOT MESSAGE ME ABOUT YOUR GROUP/SERVER! I AM ONLY LOOKING FOR A 1x1 ROLEPLAY!
