Forbes reports that the CEO of Crowdstrike, the extremely shady cyber-security corporation which was foundational in the construction of the official CIA/CNN Russian hacking narrative, is now a billionaire.

George Kurtz ascended to the billionaire rankings on the back of soaring stocks immediately after the company went public, carried no doubt on the winds of the international fame it gained from its role as a central protagonist in the most well-known hacking news story of all time. A loyal servant of empire well-rewarded.

Never mind that U.S. insiders such as Hillary Clinton had been prepping for escalations against Russia well in advance of the 2016 elections, and that their preexisting agendas to shove a geostrategic obstacle off the world stage benefited from the hacking narrative as much as George Kurtz did.

Never mind that Crowdstrike is tied to the NATO narrative management firm known as the Atlantic Council, which receives funding from the U.S., the EU, NATO, Gulf states and powerful international oligarchs. Never mind, either, that Crowdstrike was financed with a whopping $100 million from Google, which has had a cozy relationship with U.S. intelligence agencies since its very inception.

Never mind that to this day the DNC servers have not been examined by the FBI, nor indeed were they examined by the Special Counsel of Robert "Iraq has WMD" Mueller, preferring instead to go with the analyses of this extremely shady outfit with extensive and well-documented ties with the oligarchic leaders of the U.S.-centralized empire. Also never mind that the Crowdstrike analyst who led forensics on those DNC servers had in fact worked for and was promoted by Robert Mueller while the two were in the FBI.

The CEO of the Atlantic Council-tied Crowdstrike, which formed the foundation of the official CIA/CNN Russian hacking narrative, is now a billionaire. I'm telling you, the real underlying currency of this world is narrative and the ability to control it. https://www. forbes.com/sites/kerryado lan/2019/06/12/as-crowdstrike-shares-soar-on-its-ipo-day-ceo-george-kurtz-joins-the-billionaire-ranks/...

Climate change cannot be reversed. We need to look at at our personal reactions to it. Have no more to say on this critical topic, Except that the game is over.

The end game is not over and this article is about who herds the sheep over the cliff. It makes a huge difference to our remaining time.

I've been banned from Wa Po for calling Trump a shitty President. Well, nobody promised us a rose garden! I hope there's some redemptive energy among the Democratic Candidates; who I think should form a Cabinet ahead of the election, as well as choosing a President, but with the emphasis being the quality of the team. I see the function of our species as being out of our hands, as we prepare to joust with the Universe's loose parts, which seem to have cut things short here a number of times in the distant past, and our happiness, prosperity etc. being lower on the list of Ma's priorities than the task of knocking meteors off course once they start heading our way. I realize this narrative leapfrogs over the particulars, the heroes and villains, as we bumble towards having the upper hand as to celestial interlopers. My faith is that we will see the wisdom of cooperating in this effort, which explains to me our bizarre and self destructive tendencies when it comes to aggression, as well as nuclear proliferation. But as to being hacked, it's an excellent term to describe being Nature's dupes, Her creative solution to the peril in which Her Garden is placed. In short, none of us is in charge; but our purpose is noble as Hell, which makes us saviors, not sinners; although sin seems to have propelled us to the level of technical acumen necessary for the adventure. Go figure. Steeped in irony, we carry on, and if God made the Universe, He's our chief adversary. Who knew?
