Lost in the Sauce: GOP source has been a Russian agent for a decade
2020.09.14 14:27 rusticgorillaLost in the Sauce: GOP source has been a Russian agent for a decade

GOP source is Russian agent
The Treasury Department announced new sanctions against Andriy Derkach, a Ukrainian lawmaker, accusing him of being an "active Russian agent" who is part of Moscow's interference in the 2020 campaign. Derkach has been actively promoting discredited anti-Biden materials for many months, including meeting with Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani to hand over disinformation (picture).
Between May and July 2020, Derkach released edited audio tapes and other unsupported information with the intent to discredit U.S. officials, and he levied unsubstantiated allegations against U.S. and international political figures
Derkach has been central in advancing the Russian disinformation that underpins Senate Republicans’ effort to smear Vice President Biden. For example, in April, the Republican chairmen of the Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs and Finance Committees requested information about purported calls between Vice President Biden and Ukrainian officials. Then in May edited excerpts of those same calls involving Biden were leaked by Derkach and Andrii Telizhenko, the Senate Republicans’ star witness. ...Senate investigations should not parrot conspiracy theories pushed by Russian agents under U.S. sanctions, and Senate Republicans should immediately abandon this blatantly political effort.
Last week, the House Intelligence Committee released a whistleblower complaint made by former acting Under Secretary of Homeland Security for Intelligence and Analysis Brian Murphy. Chairman Adam Schiff released a statement saying the complaint “outlines grave and disturbing allegations that senior White House and Department of Homeland Security officials improperly sought to politicize, manipulate, and censor intelligence in order to benefit President Trump politically.”
Page 10: Mr. Murphy made several protected disclosures between March 2018 and August 2020 regarding a repeated pattern of abuse of authority, attempted censorship of intelligence analysis and improper administration of an intelligence program related to Russian efforts to influence and undermine United States interests. The relevant officials at issue were Secretary Nielsen and Messrs. Wolf, Cuccinelli, Taylor, and Acting Deputy Director for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Kash Patel (“Mr. Patel”).
In May 2020, Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf told Murphy to “cease providing intelligence assessments on the threat of Russian interference in the United States, and instead start reporting on interference activities by China and Iran.” Wolf told Murphy those instructions came directly from White House national security adviser Robert O’Brien, according to Murphy, who said he refused to comply because “doing so would put the country in substantial and specific danger.” In July 2020, DHS chief of staff John Gountanis intervened to stop publication of an intelligence bulletin warning about a Russian disinformation plot to “denigrate” the mental health of Joe Biden. On July 8, Murphy said, he met with Wolf, who told him that the intelligence notification should be “held” because it “made the President look bad.” After Murphy protested, Wolf excluded him from meetings about the notification, a draft of which was ultimately produced that Murphy felt minimized the actions of Russia. The complaint details dozens of instances in which Murphy told his superiors about the abuses of power and political interference. The complaints either went nowhere or resulted in perceived retaliatory actions against Murphy. Many of these complaints were given to Kash Patel, former staffer to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), who played a key role in a Republican effort to discredit Mueller’s and the FBI’s Russia probes.
Related: NSC’s top legislative affairs official, Virginia Boney, was removed and sent to the Commerce Department earlier this year because she kept pressing the White House to prioritize election security efforts — and specifically the threat posed by Russia. To date, there have been no traditional NSC Principals Committee meetings — with senior Cabinet officials and the president — on the subject of Russian interference this year.
On white supremacy
Page 14: During multiple meetings between the end of May 2020 and July 31, 2020, Mr. Murphy made protected disclosures to Messrs. Wolf and Cuccinelli regarding abuse of authority and improper administration of an intelligence program with respect to intelligence information on ANTIFA and “anarchist” groups operating throughout the United States.
Murphy alleges that Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli ordered him to modify intelligence assessments to make the threat of white supremacy “appear less severe” and include information on violent “left-wing” groups and Antifa. The reason given was “to ensure they matched up with the public comments by President Trump on the subject of ANTIFA and ‘anarchist’ groups.” After Murphy refused to change a draft report warning of the threat posed by White supremacists, Wolf and Cuccinelli reportedly stopped the report from being finished.
On immigration and asylum
In Dec. 2019, Cuccinelli expressed frustration with intelligence reports detailing conditions in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, and accused "deep-state intelligence analysts" of compiling the information to undermine Trump's objectives regarding asylum.
Page 9: The intelligence reports were designed to help asylum officers render better determinations regarding their legal standards… Mr. Murphy defended the work in the reports, but Mr. Cuccinelli stated he wanted changes to the information outlining high levels of corruption, violence, and poor economic conditions in the three respective countries... Mr. Cuccinelli ordered Messrs. Murphy and [former I&A Under Secretary David] Glawe to identify the names of the “deep state” individuals who compiled the intelligence reports and to either fire or reassign them immediately.
Murphy also alleges that DHS gave false information to Congress last year about the numbers of suspected terrorists crossing the southern border. At the time, administration officials were repeating a 4,000 figure in an effort to justify the government shutdown over Trump's border wall. The true number was actually six. A DHS spokeswoman pressured NBC to take down a story exposing the lie last year.
Chairman Schiff has subpoenaed Murphy to testify before the Intelligence Cmte. on September 21. The Cmte. also seeks to interview high-level DHS officials including Matthew Hanna, chief of staff in Murphy's former post at DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis; the office's top official, Horace Jen; DHS chief of staff John Gountanis; and his deputy, Tyler Houlton. The Senate Intelligence Cmte. issued a bipartisan request for all of the intelligence analyses that Murphy referenced in his complaint, as well as any notes and materials that fed into them. The House Homeland Security Cmte. issued a subpoena for testimony from Wolf at a hearing on Sept. 17, but DHS says that Wolf will not comply and offers Cuccinelli to testify instead. Also scheduled to be at the hearing: FBI Director Christopher Wray and Christopher Miller of the National Counterterrorism Center.
Russia still interfering
Facebook recently took down accounts and pages associated with a Russian influence operation posing as an independent news outlet. The operation published content described as “an attempt to build a left-wing audience and steer it away from Biden’s campaign, in the same way that the original IRA [Internet Research Agency] tried to depress progressive and minority support for Hillary Clinton in 2016.”
The same Russian operation tried and failed to infiltrate left-wing media outlets such as Jacobin, Truthout, and In These Times.
Bob Woodward reported that“the NSA and CIA have classified evidence the Russians had placed malware in the election registration systems of at least two Florida counties, St. Lucie and Washington. While there was no evidence the malware had been activated, Woodward writes, it was sophisticated and could erase voters in specific districts.”
Woodward’s book also notes that former director of national intelligence Dan Coats has "deep suspicions" that Russian President Vladimir Putin "had something" on President Trump, seeing "no other explanation" for the president's behavior.
Microsoft alerted SKDKnickerbocker, one of Biden’s main election campaign advisory firms, that suspected Russian state-backed hackers had gone after the company with a failed phishing attack.
DOJ, politicization, and resignations
A top aide to Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, federal prosecutor Nora Dennehy, resigned from the Justice Department and Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe. Dannehy reportedly resigned “at least partly out of concern” that Trump and AG Barr were exerting improper political pressure on the team to release results before the November election.
Several officials said expectations had been growing in the White House and Congress that Mr. Barr would make public, ahead of the election, some kind of interim report or list of findings from Mr. Durham before he completed the investigation. Mr. Barr had wanted Mr. Durham’s team to move quickly, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Trump has publicly expressed impatience with the Durham investigation, saying there should be more prosecutions and disclosures of information that would damage his political rivals. “Bill Barr has the chance to be the greatest of all time, but if he wants to be politically correct, he’ll be just another guy, because he knows all the answers, he knows what they have, and it goes right to Obama and it goes right to Biden,” Trump said (clip). Last month, Barr predicted “significant developments in the probe before the election” (clip) and he indicated the DOJ would not respect an informal policy against taking investigative steps 60 days before Election Day. It was for this exact reason that the Trump administration claimed it fired former FBI Director James Comey. On Tuesday’s Fox News, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows appeared to claim that he has seen documents—relevant to U.S. Attorney John Durham’s probe of the origins of the Russia investigation—which implicate several Trump and Obama administration officials in potentially illegal conduct.

Two other DOJ officials resigned last week: Prosecutor John Choi resigned from Trump's law enforcement commission after expressing "serious" concerns that the intention of the commission was not to bridge the gap between communities of color and law enforcement.
Choi, a Democrat, said in his resignation letter that "it is now patently obvious ... that this process had no intention of engaging in a thoughtful and open analysis, but was intent on providing cover for a predetermined agenda that ignores the lessons of the past, furthering failed tough-on-crime policies that led to our current mass incarceration crisis and fueling divisions between our communities and our police officers."
Deputy Assistant AG David Morrell resigned on Friday, withdrawing from cases defending the government’s position on issues including the Census and the Portland protests.
A three-judge panel blocked the Trump administration from excluding undocumented immigrants from being counted in the census for apportionment. Trump’s order violates a statue saying apportionment must be based on everyone who is a resident of the United States. District Judge Lucy Koh ordered the Trump admin. to produce internal documents connected to its sudden decision to end the 2020 Census count a month earlier. Two weeks ago, Koh temporarily blocked the bureau from winding down the count until a hearing set for Sept. 17. Court-appointed adviser and retired judge John Gleeson slammed the Justice Department’s decision to drop the case against Michael Flynn, calling it a "corrupt and politically motivated favor.” A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Sept. 29.
"In the United States, Presidents do not orchestrate pressure campaigns to get the Justice Department to drop charges against defendants who have pleaded guilty -- twice, before two different judges -- and whose guilt is obvious," Gleeson wrote. "Yet that is exactly what has unfolded here," he added.
A judge denied a bid to dismiss a lawsuit alleging that Trump's inaugural committee and the Trump Organization misused nonprofit funds to enrich the president's family business. The suit, brought by Washington, D.C., Attorney General Karl Racine in January, alleges that the president's inaugural committee was aware that it was being overcharged for services at Trump's Washington hotel in 2017 and still spent over $1 million at the hotel. The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control announced two settlements totaling $583,100 with Deutsche Bank to resolve investigations into violations of Ukraine-related sanctions. The resolution came as the bank hired “an old friend” of AG Barr to “help the bank navigate the political waters in Washington.”
Federal spending records show that taxpayers have paid Trump’s businesses more than $900,000 since he took office. At least $570,000 came as a result of the president’s travel.
In addition to the rentals at Mar-a-Lago, the documents show that the Trump Organization charged daily “resort fees” to Secret Service agents guarding Vice President Pence in Las Vegas and in another instance asked agents to pay a $1,300 “furniture removal charge” during a presidential visit to a Trump resort in Scotland.
Additionally, the Trump Organization has received at least $3.8 million in fees from GOP groups for headlining a political event at one of his properties. Last month, the Trump Organization received approval for a new trademark in Argentina, the third one in the country. Last November, Trump may have altered U.S. foreign policy to assist his company in obtaining approval for the two previous trademarks. “Shortly after the trademark opposition period ended in April 2018, the Trump administration lifted tariffs on steel and aluminum in Argentina. Once the trademarks were officially granted to his company in November of last year, Trump announced that he would reinstate the tariffs.” Somehow, Ivanka Trump’s fashion business is still making money despite being shutdown. According to her latest financial disclosures, “All operations of the business ceased on July 31, 2018.” Also according to her latest financial disclosures, she made at least six figures from the trust holding that business in 2019. We - American taxpayers - footed the bill for “anti-scale fencing” along the perimeter of the White House this summer. The wall, ostensibly to protect Trump from protesters, cost over $1 million. Trump has a history of charging taxpayers for barriers around his properties, including $17,000 for fencing around Mar-a-Lago and $12,000 for “privacy fencing” around Trump International golf resort.
About 8,800 unaccompanied children have been quickly expelled from the United States along the Mexico border under a pandemic-related measure that effectively ended asylum. In total, the Trump administration has expelled more than 159,000 people since March. ICE officers on the West Coast wanted to suppress Black Lives Matter protests in DC. But they aren't allowed to travel on charter flights without detainees on board. So they brought some detainees with them. In the process, they fueled a massive, deadly COVID outbreak at the Virginia facility that infected over 300 detainees, killing one. The Pentagon is restarting many domestic projects that were plundered by Trump for money to pay for his border wall. The decision to revive these domestic projects has provided cover for Republican senators who were criticized when their home states lost military construction projects to the president’s wall.
Corruption: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is bringing back his extravagant, taxpayer-funded "Madison Dinners." Corruption: Medicaid chief Seema Verma has charged taxpayers $6 million in less than two years for expensive consultants, organizers, and events. The Republican consultants were paid by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to work on Verma’s personal image, obtain profiles and coverage from friendly reporters, escort her during travel, write opinion articles, and even draft her Twitter posts. Corruption: The Trump administration secretly withheld millions of dollars from a program for 9/11 first responders. Corruption: “Ukraine gas company to add Rick Perry pick to board” and “Rick Perry’s Ukrainian Dream” Protests: Trump endorsed the extrajudicial killing of the suspect in a deadly Portland, Oregon, shooting. . “This guy was a violent criminal, and the US Marshals killed him,” Trump told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro. “And I will tell you something, that’s the way it has to be. There has to be retribution” (clip). Protests: A witness claims that the Portland suspect, Michael Forest Reinoehl, was not armed and was shot by officers without any warning. Rightwing: “QAnon fans spread fake claims about real fires in Oregon” and “'Do not take action yourselves': Multnomah Co. Sheriff's Office warns of illegal 'checkpoints' ” Rightwing: Mark Zuckerberg says it's "just wrong" to consider Facebook a right-wing echo chamber driven by conservative voices. But data from his own company shows that’s exactly what Facebook is. Environment: David Legates, a University of Delaware professor of climatology who has spent much of his career questioning basic tenets of climate science, has been hired for a top position at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Environment: How Big Oil Misled The Public Into Believing Plastic Would Be Recycled. Your plastic will not be recycled. Environment: Trump’s Fire Sale of Public Lands for Oil and Gas Drillers: The Bureau of Land Management is rushing to auction off sites ahead of a potential Biden presidency. World: The Iranian government is considering assassinating the US ambassador to South Africa in response to the killing earlier this year of Qassem Soleimani, according to highly classified intel reports. The plot against the ambassador, Lana Marks, is one of several options US officials believe Iran is considering for retaliation over Soleimani’s death.
Woodward reported that Sen. Lindsey Graham urged Trump not to assassinate Suleimani while on the golf course with the president. Graham warned Trump he would be raising the stakes from “playing $10 blackjack to $10,000-a-hand blackjack”. “This is over the top,” the senator said. “How about hitting someone a level below Suleimani, which would be much easier for everyone to absorb?”
World: Read some of the “love letters” Kim Jong Un sent to Trump. World: Woodward also reported that Trump boasted that he protected Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman after Jamal Khashoggi's brutal murder. "I saved his ass,” Trump said. “I was able to get Congress to leave him alone. I was able to get them to stop.”
2020.09.06 13:41 PensiveAfricanA Compilation on William H. Gates III
Some people on this subreddit believe that there is no good reason to regard Gates with anything other than reverence and gratitude. Those of us who know that there is more to this "human being" than the simple "he's saving lives" narrative tend to focus on the subject of depopulation. The depopulation narrative is one that I tend not to emphasise because it seems much more "out there" than some very important things which are have happened, and are continuing to happen right in front of us. I posted much of this information in a comment on another thread, but it is quite obscure, and few are likely to find it. While some of this information is known to regulars on the sub, I have decided to reconstitute the information here, as its own post, to invite deeper research on the subject. He has helped people with his money, but in my opinion there is substantial evidence to show that there has been a dark side to these actions in the form of his accumulation of power over global health; a power which he is quite clearly exercising now with the response to this coronavirus. Also note, that the draconian lockdown measures have been partially funded into existence by him through the wildly inaccurate models of people like Neil Ferguson at the Vaccine Impact Modelling Consortium, whose projected deaths were massive overestimations. It was this model that scared the British government in particular with his claim that the coronavirus would kill 500,000 people. This while knowing that Ferguson has a long-track record of producing models that wildly overestimate diseases and lead directly to catastrophic government actions. So we now have a roughly flu-level virus for which lockdowns have been in place for months, and we have Gates telling us that our lives cannot go back to normal until we have a vaccine. This is a man who has directly influenced the British and American governments' decisions to destroy their economies, a decision which will lead to far more deaths than the actual virus, just to create the fear, deprivation and social pressures necessary to get people to consent to being herded back to a semblance of normality only after they have received a vaccine. I think that on its own is enough to severely undermine the idea that he is unambigously a good man who simply wants to save lives with him money. In order to maintain the level of fear necessary to win the public over to the idea that a vaccine must truly be the only way out, the British government has been massively overstating deaths from COVID and ramping up restrictions such as the mandatory wearing of masks, for which the evidence remains weak(links to several studies on mask efficacy as you scroll down on that page) in order to create division among the populace between those who know we are being manipulated and those who continue to believe that COVID-19 is as we are told. Here is an article that was written by a UK academic exposing this fact. The number of deaths was cut by 5,000 following this revelation. Here is a scientific paper suggesting that the official death count needs to be cut by over 50%. In any case, we are seeing, in many countries, an onslaught of increasingly ridiculous measures which represents an attack on the public's sense of proportionality with regard to state responses to threats, facilitating public consent for more egregious and invasive abuses in the near future, and ushering in a new age of modern authoritianism by stealth, ostensibly for the sake of public health. In particular, immunitypassports, and mandatory vaccination in some form are being prepped, and propaganda is being deployed to characterise those who would not have a vaccine as dangerous. Crippling over time the public's ability to sense and resist government overreach in their lives, is the very best method for maintaining and securing any fascistic system. Over the generations, the very notion of overreach could be eliminated, as total state control over every facet of public and private life becomes as present, and as natural as the very air they breathe. You might say that these authoritarian technocratic interventions have nothing to do with Gates. I disagree. Bill Gates has been quietly funding precisely such a system as these into existence. What is intended is the deployment of a system situated at the intersection of various forms of cashless payment, and biometric identification attached to vaccination records. Perhaps this is what he means by "digital certificates". Perhaps this system will be situated on an app, or perhaps a quantum dot tattoo on one's wrist which will be scannable by a modified smart phone. This particular Gates initiative is one of the sources of the "mircrochip" conspiracy theory that the mainstream media tell the public about. They take a real thing which actually exists and find the most simple-minded or most hysterical people that discuss it, and amplify their voices so that the general public dismiss all such information because they have been conditioned to associate it with the "crazy microchip conspiracy theory". It is basically a straw man of a legitimate concern. CBS recently did this with Gates on precisely this subject. The microchip allegation is used to simply distract the minds of viewers away from the actual technocratic control systems that he is involved in designing and towards a straw man that has been specifically chosen for its seeming ridiculousness. It is a wonderful feat in mind control. Also, recall that Event 201 was a coronavirus pandemic simulation exercise organised on the 18th of October 2019 by the World Economic Forum in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University, the World Bank, various major media corporations and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The symptoms were the same, except that it started at a Brazilian pig farm in the simulation. These bodies planned the global response to such a disease. The event started on the same day as the World Military Games in Wuhan, China. About 6 weeks later, we first heard of Covid in the mass media. To my knowledge, no mass media organisation has seen fit to even mention that this took place since the onset of the outbreak. Bill Gates has not been asked about this event in any form on CNN or the BBC. His foundation happens to have donatedmillions of British pounds to the BBC in the past. Given his organisation's participation in this event, the fact that Gates has been funding the development of the technologies I mentioned before, and is soon to be the single largest funder of the WHO (following the possible withdrawal of funding by the US government) terrifies me and large numbers of other people. I think it requires a level of naivety not to see that we are now facing a global problem, for which Gates and other players clearly had a level of foreknowledge(unless you think Event 201 was a coincidence - in which case I have an ancient Mesopotamian stone carving to sell you) and for which he and other technocrats just so happen to have very specific solution in mind. On the subject of his power over the WHO, Gates contributes more to the WHO than Australia, Canada, France, Russia, Germany, and the UK combined. Tedros served as the chair of the Gates-funded Global fund to fight AIDS, TB and Malaria, and he sat on the boards of the Gates-founded GAVI, and the Gates-funded Stop TB partnership. I think it is childish to simply think that he is a good man because he's been funding vaccination programmes for years without also looking at the fact that he has thereby insinuated himself deep into the infrastructure of global health, creating massive financial dependence on the part of large parts on that infrastructure on himself. All the while, he is developing the groundwork for a technocratic population control grid with biometric ID, vaccination information, and cashless payments coming together. There have been a number of well-known, but heavily suppressed scandals involving him pertaining to WHO-led mass tetanus vaccination programmes which led to allegations of mass sterilizations in Kenya and the Philippines. Given his belief that the world is overpopulated, and that population growth in the third world can be reduced through vaccination, these allegations are extremely disturbing and the fact that they go without adequate investigation more so. In India, a 2018 paper in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health concluded that over 490,000 people in India developed paralysis as a result of the oral polio vaccine between 2000 and 2017. In fact, in 2017, there was confirmation that the Gates-supported oral polio vaccine was responsible for the majority of cases. In 2018, a follow-up showed that 80% of cases were vaccine-derived. So, again, this idea that Gates is a good man who is unambiguously saving the world with vaccines is almost certainly media PR spin, which he is probably paying for, while having the dark side of what he does suppressed within the Western consciousness. There is also his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein. He flew on Epstein's plane several times in fact. Here is an email showing former- MIT Media Lab Director Joi Ito—who resigned from his position after it was found that he had helped hide Epstein’s identity as an “anonymous” donor to the lab—telling his staff that a $2 million donation to the lab in 2014 was a “gift from Bill Gates directed by Jeffrey Epstein.” NYT reported in October of 2012 that Gates had met with Epstein on multiple occasions, and that they discussed the creation of a multibillion dollar charitable fund with seed money from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and JPMorgan Chase. The Times reported that Gates emailed his colleagues about Epstein in 2011: “His lifestyle is very different and kind of intriguing although it would not work for me.” Epstein’s will named Boris Nikolic—a Harvard-trained immunologist who served as the chief scientific advisor to both Microsoft and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Nikolic appears in the only publicly known photo of Epstein and Gates’ 2011 meeting at Epstein’s Manhattan mansion—as the backup executor of Epstein’s estate. Note also that in August of 2019 it was reported that Epstein “Hoped to Seed the Human Race With His DNA.” The New York Times explained that, Epstein intended to impregnate 20 women at a time at his New Mexico ranch in order to “seed the human race with his DNA”. Epstein’s sponsored a number of scientists working in genetics, including George Church, a Harvard geneticist whose lab received funding from Epstein’s foundation from 2005 to 2007 for “cutting edge science.” According to James Corbett: "Church publicly apologized for his connection to Epstein, which included several meetings a year from 2014 onward. This was neither the first nor the last time that this unassuming Harvard biologist, whose “cutting edge science” often strays into controversial areas, caused a public scandal. In 2019, Church proposed a “genetics dating app” which was immediately denounced as applied eugenics. Church also acted as scientific advisor to Editas Medicine, a startup seeking to use the genome-editing tool, CRISPR-Cas9, to eliminate diseases by deleting the parts of a genetic code responsible for the illness. In 2015, the company announced it had raised $120 million from a group led by Epstein’s appointed backup executor, Dr. Boris Nikolic. Naturally, that group of investors included Bill Gates." That Gates is quite probably motivated on some level by eugenics is further reinforced by the fact his father was at one time on the board of Planned Parenthood, which was founded by Margaret Sanger - an open advocate of eugenics (and in my opinion, a racist). A sidenote on the WHO: The WHO faked a pandemic (swine flu in 2009) by changing the definition of the term "pandemic" so that people no longer needed to actually die of a disease for it to be declared a pandemic. A month later, H1N1 "swine flu" was declared a pandemic even though there had been 144 deaths from the disease worldwide. They did this to trigger legislation in many countries that would lead to the purchase of vaccines. It turned out that many of the people on the advisory board which made the change had money in pharma. GSK's experimental H1N1 vaccine caused over 1300 cases of narcolepsy and cataplexy. A video discussing this. In conclusion, I believe that this information offers a more complete image of this man than the saintly view we are constantly being sold, and I invite every one of us to seek more knowledge regarding the far-reaching agendas with which he is involved. Thank you.

2020.06.14 19:17 Clem_CrozierLisa McQueen's Motives Idea
One of the most perplexing characters in LOD to date is Lisa McQueen. Debuting in season five, her moral compass and character development have been enigmatic, leaving the audience in suspense for more information. On the one hand, McQueen appears to be an astute OCG businessperson, playing hardball with rival gangs, deducing that John was a rat, presumably organising his murder with the gang, being the first OCG member to see through Hastings' undercover masquerade as 'H', keeping Ryan's name out of her statements despite otherwise co-operating with the authorities etc. However, Lisa also was unable to bring herself to shoot Jane Cafferty (telling the OCG that she thought she was dead, but evidently knowing she wasn't), confided in Corbett that she didn't like human traficking (though this was part of a ruse, those feelings may still have been genuine), appeared distressed by Corbett's death when she was in private, and agreed to participate in educational schemes to discourage young people from lives of crime. My own thinking is that McQueen is trying to figure out the mystery of H, with the intention of bringing him to justice, although is not affiliated with the police. She is the only OCG member who seems at all interested in H's identity, with the others not caring so long as they get their money and power from the criminal dealings. She knows that H is being very careful with their identity, communicating via untraceable text link. As a regular OCG member, H will not reveal his identity to her, just as none of the regular criminals knew that Dot was the Caddy, not even some of the other police like Manish Prasad or Hari Baines. This is why Ryan is joining the police force; they need a new Caddy. Lisa is the OCG member who took a personal interest in Ryan joining the police. She was the one who questioned Ryan about his interview with the police college, and suggested he stay away from crime from that point on. Whilst Lisa name-dropped other members of the OCG in her interrogation, she kept Ryan's name out. To me, this is because if Ryan can climb the ranks and become Dot's successor, Lisa will have a personal connection to someone who could eventually learn the identity of H. This would be a great piece of the truth hiding in plain sight. Whilst Ryan appears to be more morally devoid and genuinely evil than Dot ever was, what if beneath it was the exact opposite? What if PC Bannerjee really did make the difference at the end of season one, and everything we saw Ryan say in his interview about turning his life around was true? The audience would think we were seeing Ryan passing information to the OCG about the police, but in fact it would be Ryan passing information the Lisa. Writing-wise, the new Caddy needs to be a fresh take, whilst having parallels with Dot's character to cement a compelling arc. Dot did terrible things to maintain his cover, hoping to eventually get the chance to retire from crime one day. So maybe Ryan is doing the same thing, but not with the intention of retiring from crime, but hoping to eventually gather all the information he needs to shut down the city's main OCG for good. What if all the bad things we saw him do in season five were simply necessary to earn the trust of the OCG? That might sound like a lot, but the only people we've seen him kill were Corbett and some bent coppers who were transporting heroin from the Eastfield depot. Lisa and Ryan may simply have seen the bent coppers as expendable; Corbett certainly did. As for Corbett himself, once Lisa was alone, she was visibly upset. Had Lisa thought of him as a devoted and principled police officer, but known he didn't stand a chance of catching the real H, this would explain her role in his death. If you think about it, if Corbett had escaped after freeing the trafficked women, where could Corbett or the OCG have gone from threre? Lisa's branch of the OCG wouldn't have been trusted by their superiors in crime again, and there would have been every chance of them going to prison. But for all that, Corbett wouldn't have been any closer to actually catching the real H. To keep her own plan of catching H by planting Ryan as a double-agent alive, Lisa needed Corbett to die. Her distress afterwards was because she knew she was responsible for the death of someone who was trying to do the right thing, even if she knew there was no catching H otherwise. Thematically, this could work for what the idea of a new Caddy would need. Dot was a tragic case of someone who never went looking for crime, but stumbled into it, was pressured by some very bad people, and had to do terrible deed after terrible deed to stop the consequences catching up with him. He wanted to turn good, but never managed it in time. Ryan could prove to be the example of what happens if a positive influence intervenes before it's too late. My prediction is Ryan is going to be a double-agent, one who appears to be a bent copper, even to the viewer, but is actually following Lisa's plan to catch H. I'm sticking with H being DI Ian Buckells.
2020.06.07 18:58 petarcticfoxCan we do a crowd sourced timeline of the Federal Reserve's activity over the past couple months?
I've been trying to get my news as much as possible from alternative sources like Corbett Report and (from recent JRE episode) the Rising series from The Hill. Both have mentioned that during the covid months, some serious Fed activity was happening on the down-low, which Corbett and others claim is part of a huge economic reset and a shift towards a digital currency. It's also partly why the stock market seems to be doing find despite everything going on. Would members of the sub be interested in collaborating on a timeline of relevant Fed activity? If comments can include date + description + link to source, I'll work on compiling them all into a chronological timeline. Thx in advance for any help with this. For starters: February 5, 2020 - Fed does a soft announcement that it's considering a FEDCOIN digital currency.
The Central Banks are determined not to be left behind by the new private digital players and adapt to blockchain and digital finance technology for their own leverage. Research around central bank digital currencies (CBDC) is a major focus for the Central banks currently with six of the world’s central banks coming together to create a working group for experimentation and assessment.
Going back in all of history, banks have been required to hold reserves against their assets - which are loans and securities. It’s simple – banks set aside a percentage of their assets as reserve and kept it in gold (for most of recorded history) or as cash at the Federal Reserve. ...During the over 100+ years of Fed history, they have mandated the bank reserve ratio.... That ratio was north of 20% through most of the first fifty years of the Fed (including the great depression). It had made its way down to 10% - that was before today. Until further clarification or notice, banks need not hold any reserve against their assets. This means that banks could theoretically continue making loans to infinity. ...By calling the reserve requirement zero, the regulations become moot. It releases the banks to lend to whomever they want and in any size. ...What do these actions mean to investors? The actions should satisfy the markets about the Fed’s intentions on liquidity - nearly unlimited.
March 15, 2020 - Fed issues press release stating it will "increase holdings of treasury securities by at least $500 billion and its holdings of agency mortgage backed securities by at least $200 billion."
James Corbett: "If you go and check the balance sheet at...the Federal Reserve Economic Data website...you can find that in the past month, the Federal Reserve has increased its balance sheet to the tune of $1.5 trillion dollars or so."
U.S. Treasury securities—such as bills, notes and bonds—are debt obligations of the U.S. government. When you buy a U.S. Treasury security, you are lending money to the federal government for a specified period of time. Because these debt obligations are backed by the “full faith and credit” of the government, and thus by its ability to raise tax revenues and print currency, U.S. Treasury securities – or "Treasuries" – are generally considered the safest of all investments.
March 15, 2020 - Fed lowered the target for the fed funds rate to a range of between 0%-0.25% on March 15, 2020.
The fed funds rate is the interest rate banks charge each other to lend Federal Reserve funds overnight. But it's also a benchmark for interest rates on credit cards, mortgages, and bank loans, and the main tool the nation's central bank uses to influence the U.S. economy. Arguably, that makes it the most important interest rate in the world.
April 9, 2020 - Fed announces "a $2.3 trillion lending program that will extend credit to banks that issue PPP loans, purchase up to $600 billion in loans issued through the Main Street program to medium-sized firms. The moves also involve secondary corporate credit facilities that will allow the Fed to buy corporate bonds from “fallen angels” that have slid into downgrades, and a $500 billion program to buy bonds from state and municipal governments."
2020.06.04 17:08 ChildfreeFamilyHelp fact-checking a list of well known Childfree people
I'm compiling a list of childfree people for a blog. I have found a few lists online (which have been helpful). But in some cases they were not up-to-date. A person may have had children since being added to their list (example: I had to remove George Clooney who appeared on a number of lists). Or there might be some people missing who should be on the list. If you have a moment to scan the list and let me know of any other errors or omissions it would be appreciated. It has been fun working on this list. A few people on it surprised me. Thanks again for any help. \Edit for clarification: the term "childfree", in the sense of this list, will be in regards to people who never had a child from a live birth, fostered a child, adopted a child, or was a step-parent.* Herbert Samuel Adams – Sculptor Charles Addams – Cartoonist (The New Yorker) Jane Addams - Social Worker, Political Activist, Co-Founder of the ACLU, & Nobel Peace Prize Winner Nancy Addison – Actress Louisa May Alcott – Author Cynthia May Westover Alden – Author, Philanthropist Grover Cleveland Alexander – Baseball Player Suzy Allegra – Author Marty Allen – Comedian John Murray Anderson – Musical Theatre Producer Laurie Anderson – Performance Artist Marian Anderson – Concert Singer Louis Andriessen – Composer Jennifer Aniston – Actress Susan B.

2020.05.23 20:54 Clem_CrozierHow Would You Have Solved the Morse Code Retcon?
No doubt the thing that fans tend to think that Jed Mercurio has got wrong in LOD, would be Dot's morse code signal in his dying declaration. To summarise, in DI Matthew Cotton's dying declaration, Kate urges him to do the right thing and reveal the identity of the top corrupt police officer, who has been instructing and controlling him, amongst others. Unable to speak because of the bullet wounds to his chest, Kate has Dot double-blink as she recites the alphabet, in order to indicate one letter at a time, until they can deduce the name. Dot gets as far as indicating the first letter is 'H' before he loses consciousness and needs to be taken away for further medical treatment. Dot is now canonically dead as far as the viewer is aware, but theories persist, and when the shows premise is a network of people lying, falsifying evidence, misleading enquiries etc. all within the police, and we never actually saw a confirmed dead body or a funeral, who really knows for sure? The retcon happened at the end of series five, with Steve noticing, when watching back the dying declaration once more, that Dot also signalled with his hand in morse code for letter 'H'. Steve comes to the conclusion that as the morse for H is four dots, that since Cotton's nickname was 'Dot', he was explaining that he was one of four corrupt senior police officers still serving at the time. 'H' was in fact an indication to his role in the schemes, and not the first initial of the top corrupt officer. Firstly, here's why it was actually important to have that part of the story. Yes, undoubtedly it was an addition that now opens up all kinds of problems, which I will get to. But a twist like this was maybe necessary going into the next series. The plot point of the mysterious 'H' was there to both lead the investigation towards the idea that Ted Hastings could be the top bent copper, and then later to make the viewer start to wonder if indeed someone we've seen as a figure of trust and morality from the beginning could actually be the overarching villain of it all. Whilst that was great, really saw more depth added to Ted's character, and opened the door for the best acting performances from Adrian Dunbar in LOD to date (dealing with his RUC past being dug up, the perfect foil of John Corbett being introduced, finding himself sitting on the opposite side of the interview table etc.), when Ted was cleared, it did leave an 'H' problem. If I recall correctly, Ted said himself that there were eight officers in the region, of DI rank or higher, whose surname began with that letter. With Hilton and Hargreaves both dead and gone, and Hastings cleared, that would leave five. They could have decided to spend the next two series trying to determine which of the five potential 'H's was the real villain, and maybe that entangled a mystery could have been great. But to establish five new characters to such an extent that they all would be plausible as the show's big bad would be very difficult to make flow in an episode format. Also, running five big investigations at once wouldn't really be feesible with AC-12's resources. Kate can't go undercover against someone who already knows about AC-12's personnel either, which H undoubtedly does by this stage. Jed, of course, could have opted not to introduce the full five as potential suspects. But the smaller the number of suspects, the harder it is to avoid telegraphing the real identity too early, and if one new character with a surname beginning with 'H' suddenly starts getting screentime, we'd know something was up. Hence the morse code retcon. Nothing changes in that we are still looking for one top bent copper. It isn't like 'H' is a title passed from the boss to their successor or some sort of a concept, as far as we know. The only difference is that their name no longer has to necessarily begin with the letter 'H'. It still could begin with 'H', in theory, but given the shift in focus away from that, it would be strange to then U-turn on that later. The problems that arise from this are the suspension of disbelief, and there certainly is a lot. It's hard to imagine Dot's thought process that got him to the stage of signalling the morse for the letter 'H'. The signal only even functions if you call him by his nickname and think of him as such. Hastings, who leads the investigations, didn't even call him Dot. So that would have been going over his head. That's assuming that Dot believed anyone was going to notice his hand moving slightly in the background (I know Steve did, but was Dot to know that?), not to mention interpret that in morse code. How Steve came to the conclusion he did was some serious reaching, canon as it now is. Also, why did Dot double-blink on 'H' when Kate was reciting the alphabet if the officer's name didn't begin with 'H'? Wouldn't that just be clouding the waters even more? So is there anything you would have done differently if you were Jed? How would you have navigated the mystery of 'H' now that we know it isn't Ted, and how would you proceed now that the morse code has been set up in the story?

There’s a certain kind of eponym where you can call someone by a name in order to evoke a stereotypical role or personality. Or similarly, you can evoke a type of person by name. So, for example, we could say someone is acting like a “Karen”, or tell a joke about the stock character “Kyle”. I collected a bunch of these below. (Despite my punny title, these range from contemptuous to complimentary!) The definitions are either my own wording or pasted from Wiktionary. Some of these are mostly associated with one country or subculture; some are dated; others are so common they hardly parse as names. I sorted them by origin. Can you think of more examples? Common names

2020.01.25 16:47 TopGolfUFOAn in Depth Look at the Brian Shaffer Case
For those of you unfamiliar with the case, or who just need a refresher, here's the wiki article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disappearance_of_Brian_Shaffer I wanted to try my hand at a longform write up of the case, so if you are new to the case and want to read an admittedly long winded summary, here are both parts https://www.reddit.com/BrianShaffecomments/etrmjg/an_in_depth_look_at_the_case_part_1/ https://www.reddit.com/BrianShaffecomments/etrsnk/an_in_depth_look_at_the_case_part_2/ Since I know this case has been discussed on here so often, that many of you are probably burned out, here are just a few key points that I thought were interesting, and I wanted to post them here. Brian was actually last seen on camera at 1:57 AM, not 1:55, and he continued to talk to Brighton for a few minutes after her stepped out of view. This means there was less than a four minute window from when he was last seen, to when Meredith called him at 2:01 and his phone went straight to voicemail. When the Ugly Tuna closed down in 2018 the emergency exit was not alarmed, and simply used as an employee exit. Back in 2006 the camera recording this exit was automatically taped over after a certain amount of time, so the footage from this exit the night Brian vanished has never been recovered. But also there's always the possibility that the panning cameras on the normal exit could have missed something, and I'm not trying to dismiss the theory that he never left the bar, just pointing this out. The phone glitch was not a one off thing, it rang on and off for a Friday night, then stopped Saturday, then rang all day on a Sunday. Aside from this weekend it never rang again, and the phone company, Cingular, did dismiss it was a glitch. In an interview in august of 2006, Alexis said that the people Brian was last seen with were students of another friend of his, a friend he had been with earlier that evening. Whether she was referring to Amber and Brighton is unclear, as Clint was Amber's TA but not Brighton's. I found this interesting since Clint and Meredith were house sitting for a professor that night, and the professors house and car were later searched, so I was wondering if she was perhaps referring to Clint and Meredith as the "students" and perhaps Brian was also friends with this professor. Either way all of them have long since been interviewed and cleared, though people still debate about if Clint has been interviewed thoroughly enough. Brian's cousin Dan who was interviewed in the podcasts Kelly Bruce did, mentioned a few things not brought up by other family members. He was the only one to mention Brian's DUI, which does show up in the Fairfield County Court system. However, he also claimed that when Brian's things were being moved out of his apartment they found the word "Alone" scratched into the wall, and John Hurst says this is not true. Clint Florence's lawyer did not say that Hurst specifically was the one who implied law enforcement thinks Brian is still alive. Also the letter that Clint sent, saying people need to talk to his lawyer with any questions seemed more cordial than many people portrayed it was. There was also an incident mentioned by Don Corbett where Randy yelled at Clint in front of several people during one of the searches early on, and this may have been when Clint distanced himself. Not saying he's innocent, just pointing out that the internet has to some degree decided he's the villain, and much of what he does is looked at with a suspicious lens. Though also Derek and Alexis's dad both think he knows more than he's saying. Many small details of what exactly Brian's timeline was the night he vanished could be slightly wrong. Randy and Don at various points would contradict each other in interviews, despite the fact that they shared information with each other. Just small things, like whether it was Clint who said Brian was going to talk to the band, and if Brian used cash or a card to pay for his drinks. In several interviews Randy would say the wrong date or time for certain events, so it's possible he may not have had the most precise memory. In the "Brian Shaffer Dead or Alive" podcast Kelly Bruce mentions that Brian was having a get together at his apartment later that night, but he never followed up with the people who were supposed to show up. One of Renee's coworkers did confirm that Brian had been talking to Renee about asking Alexis to marry him, and he had even been looking at a jeweler. He had only been talking to Renee about it, so that's why in early interviews, Derek didn't know. On the other hand, Brighton says that Brian had been flirting with her that night, even kissing her neck. So while Brian was planning on proposing to Alexis, how faithful he actually was is up for debate. Just wanted to post these here, since there are a few misconceptions I see a lot, the 1:55 time stamp, and the cell phone glitch mostly. If there is anything else anyone wants to point out about the case please fell free to, I feel like this is one where information is sort of spread out everywhere.
2020.01.25 15:49 TopGolfUFOAn in Depth Look at the Case Part 1
I'm new to longform write ups, but wanted to try my hand at this case to sort of compile everything into one place. All sources used are cited at least once in text. All the local articles I got through the Columbus Library Newsbank database, so I won't post the pile of links as many of them are behind paywalls. It may be a bit long winded (and apparently over the character limit so I'm not sure if I can post both parts today), but hopefully I covered everything. 2005 in central Ohio was a year with an abundance of high profile missing adult cases. When children go missing, foul play is almost always suspected or considered, and law enforcement gets involved right away. Adults however, are allowed to come and go as they please. When investigating, law enforcement needs to consider the possibility of a voluntary disappearance alongside that of foul play, which leads to a lack of consistency with how thoroughly missing adult cases are investigated. After all, it’s not illegal for an adult to disappear without a trace if they want to. Jonathan Sheasby had been missing for 83 days before his body was found. According to his mother police took over a month to take the case seriously. Sheasby had told his mother that his life was in danger prior to his disappearance. When he went missing, the state of his house was concerning to say the least. His television was left on, food was on the table, and his clothes and other possessions had been tossed around as if someone was looking for something. Despite this, police were slow to accept that foul play had lead to Sheasby’s disappearance. Eventually, months after he went missing, a dog brought Jonathan Sheasby’s skull into a local resident’s yard. They found the rest of his body in a nearby patch of woods. It turns out the danger he'd warned his mother about was very real, and he’d been killed because he had been witness to a crime. Tony Luzio Jr. had disappeared on July 4th of 2005. He was last seen at a house party in Delaware County, just north of Columbus, at 4 AM. When he didn’t show up for work the next day, his father, a retired police officer who investigated missing person cases, knew that something was very wrong. His parents were baffled by his disappearance but hoped that he had maybe just run away. His mother said she would lie awake at night thinking about him, and his father stated on Fox News on July 22nd, that if Tony were listening “I want to tell him that I love him so much and I want him to come home. We are worried sick and life is not the same without him. We need him.” The Luzio’s would spend many years looking for Tony, finding solace in connecting with other families of missing adults. When Julie Popovich vanished on August 11th from Ledo’s lounge in Columbus, her boyfriend reported her missing two days later. She didn’t answer her phone and was last seen leaving the bar, very intoxicated, with a man she’d met that night. Julie’s friend Teoanna admitted to loaning her 20 year old friend her ID in order to get into the bar that night. A month later the ID would turn up in the mail, sent back to Teoanna by a fisherman who had found it near the Hoover reservoir. A more serious search of the area turned up Julie’s remains, and the man who was last seen leaving the bar with her would eventually be charged in her murder. All of these cases were handled very differently, and it was against this backdrop that local residents started clamoring for some kind of standardization in the handling of adult missing persons cases. When Brian Shaffer would vanish the next year, police, family, and friends would all struggle with the question of whether his disappearance was voluntary or not. The strange details surrounding his disappearance would make the case a hit among internet sleuths, and they would scramble to piece together what little information existed in the public realm in an effort to prove their own theories. Armed with a mixture of rumors, conflicting reports from family members, and overanalyzed Myspace quotes, we’ll begin to detail the story of Brian Shaffer as we know it. When Brian Shaffer enrolled in Medical school at Ohio State University, his cousin, Dan, described it as “A very Brian thing to do.” He’d never been the top of his class in high school, but when he found something he was passionate about he stuck with it. Back in high school he’d been more committed to athletics, playing baseball, soccer, and tennis. According to his cousin, he was very competitive. Dan explained that once, following a game in which his team suffered a particularly bad loss, he openly talked trash to a Columbus Dispatch reporter about the other team. This story cannot be verified as no record of this article could be found in the Dispatch archives. Dan also shared that when Brian was captain of his highschool tennis team, Brian was only two games away from finals when his coach told him he needed to cut his hair, and Brian instead just quit the team. Occasionally Dan’s statements conflict with that of other friends and family members, but he was also the first to mention some of the darker aspects of Brian’s life. All of Dan’s stories were part of an interview he did with the Comeback podcast, a 2018 deep dive into the case hosted by Kelly Bruce and Nick West. In high school Brian played guitar for a band, and would often semi joke that he wanted to be a famous rock star. He also had a long term girlfriend, Shelly. They dated for eight years near the end of high school, overlapping into college. Though they were serious, he didn’t really bring her around to family events. His brother, Derek, said there was a rumor that he’d slept with a friend’s girlfriend while working at one of his first jobs at JCPenney, but he didn’t know for sure if it was true. And whether or not this had anything to do with the end of his relationship with Shelly is unclear. During his college years Brian went through a few phases, taking a gap year after high school, and becoming a bit of a partier. On March 17th, 1999 Brian was pulled over at 9 am in Baltimore, Ohio for operating a vehicle under the influence. He was ordered to pay nearly $500 in fines and spent three days in jail. After that, he was completely straightlaced for a time but eventually got back into drinking, though that was his one and only criminal offense. Dan was the first person to mention this, and the charges show up in the Fairfield county court system. This didn’t stop Brian from pursuing higher education, and though he would take his time getting his degree, spending some time in Puerto Rico, he would eventually graduate in 2003 with a bachelors in microbiology, and a minor in genetics. After spending a bit more time Puerto Rico, Brian enrolled in med school at OSU where he was in the same class as Alexis Waggoner. They sat in the same classroom, and at the end of the year, he sent her an email saying that he’d been looking at her all year, and wanted to know if she wanted to get dinner together. She accepted and they started dating right away. On his Myspace bio he mentioned her, saying “I have an awesome and amazing girlfriend.....she's superhot and lots of fun.” Throughout medical school Brian would often joke to his friends about how his real love was music, he’d never lost the passion he had for it in highschool. He even went so far as to say on his Myspace bio “Um...I really love music and this whole doctor thing is really just a job (only temporary) until I get my band together and put out a record. I want to own an island someday, or at least a beach so I can listen to Buffett all day and drink margaritas with my senorita.” He’d also listed Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam as the person he’d most like to meet, though he did mention wanting to “Burn one down” with Bob Marley as well. His one and only tattoo was the stick man from Pearl Jam that he’d gotten tattooed on his upper right arm. In 2005 Brian’s mother, Renee, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Brian and his brother Derek had never been particularly close, but their mother’s diagnosis brought them together. On his Myspace page, Brian had put his mother as his only hero, saying she “will always inspire me to do my best and I don’t want to let her down”. He described her as “The greatest most wonderful person in the world.” She was a nurse herself at Columbus’ Mount Carmel hospital, and friends and family would later mention that it’s possible Brian decided to pursue medicine partly to follow in her footsteps. For Christmas that year, Renee bought Brian and Alexis a trip to Miami for their upcoming spring break. Brian loved spending time at the beach, and looking back on his memories of Brian, his brother Derek would recall how much fun he and Brain had on family trips to Florida. The upcoming Miami trip was shaping up to be very special, with Alexis and some family members speculating that Brian might be planning on proposing. One of Renee’s coworkers would later confirm that they had recommended a jeweler to Renee, and that Brian had been talking to Renee about his plans to ask Alexis for her hand. A few months later on March 6th, 2006 Renee passed away after a three year-long battle with cancer. Her obituary described her as “a dedicated nurse who put her heart and soul into her profession”. The day of the funeral Brian was nowhere to be seen when it was scheduled to start. Friends and family members kept glancing back at the doors, while Randy, Brian’s father and Renee’s husband, played the sax to pass the time. After a little over an hour, Brian and Alexis showed up. Brian said he’d overslept. Family members said he took his mother's death very poorly because they had been so close. Alexis said that not long after, he told her she should move on and find someone else who could make her happy because he was in a dark place after Renee’s death. When her life insurance policy came through, Derek received around $20,000, while Brian didn’t get anything from the policy. This was possibly related to how it would have affected all the student debt he’d piled up from med school. March 17th was Saint Patrick’s day, and Brian went out with his best friend, Clint Florence, and their friend Meredith Reed. Brian was very close with Clint, and the two of them had lived together before with another roommate. The night ended poorly with Clint and Brian getting into a fight. They may have spoken in person and made up, but the two didn’t text or call each other for weeks. On March 28th, in the midst of finals, Brian came home at 4 am after studying and jokingly asked Alexis to skip class the next day so they could run off and get married. Alexis said that Brian worried about his grades, and was staying up late a lot to prepare for exams. Before his mother passed away he would frequently mention her when he was struggling in school, often saying that he wanted to make her proud. Friday, March 31st of 2006 marked the first day of spring break. Alexis drove up to Toledo to visit her family for a few days before her and Brian’s upcoming trip on April 3rd. Her family dog, Ellie, was very ill and didn’t have a lot of time left, so she wanted to make sure to spend some time with her. That same morning Clint Florence posted a status on Brian’s Myspace saying “Ladies, don’t believe a word this man says! He loves the asstags.” According to PI Don Corbett, this was the first time the two had spoken in a tractable way, though it’s likely the two had made up in person by then. Since finals had just ended, Brian decided to celebrate by going to dinner with his father. Randy noticed that Brian seemed tired after pulling many late nights studying, but other than that they had a good time. According to Don Corbett, Brian and Randy had been having a lot of tension in their relationship, but he wouldn’t disclose what it was about, out of respect for their private affairs. In the follow-up True Crime Garage episode about this case, they claim that Brian was upset with Randy, because Randy had been romantically involved with someone before Renee had passed away. Their source for this information isn’t given so it is impossible to verify the truth, however they are a podcast local to Columbus and tend to have a good relationship with law enforcement. At 6:21 PM Brian messaged Alexis on Myspace to say “I can't wait to go to Miami Miami!!!! You going topless? A man can dream, can't he” Derek had tried to get Brian to join Maurin and himself for a comedy show at the Funny Bone, a comedy club in Easton mall. Brian had declined as he had previous plans with Clint, but the brothers had decided to try to meet up later that night. Around 9:15-9:30 Clint went to pick up Brian at his apartment on King Avenue. They drove to the Ugly Tuna Saloona, a bar in the newly renovated Gateway area. The Gateway brought in several new buildings and bars, replacing an area south of the Ohio State University campus that had been run down and dilapidated for quite some time. They had around four shots of liquor, Alexis called Brian around 10 pm to check in and tell him Ellie was still alive. He told her that he was having a night out with the guys and it was his chance to talk about her to them. He said he was very excited for their trip to Miami, and he would see her when he got back into town. Brian and Clint then made their way to the short north, stopping by Brothers Bar, then Red Star, where Meredith met with them sometime after midnight. At some point while they were barhopping, they met up with a few fellow students, but this was possibly not publicized so that the other students would not be harassed. Derek spoke to Brian at some point in the night to tell him that he and Maurin were too tired to go bar hopping in the short north, so they wouldn’t be joining him. After Meredith drove them back to the Ugly Tuna, security cameras picked them up going back into the bar. The only way in to the Ugly Tuna was to walk into the gateway building, which had a few restaurants, and a movie theater, then take the escalator up to the second story. Brian was caught on camera, facing Clint and Alexis, wearing a dark green polo shirt over a long-sleeved white shirt. In an interview on April 10th, 2006 on MSNBC, when recounting that night Clint said “we see some students of mine. We sat down next to them. It was Meredith to my right, then me, and then the two girls and then Brian was doing his usual thing. And he was talking to those two girls. And I go, yeah, Brian stick around. He has a tendency to walk away. And probably 10 minutes later, 15 minutes later, I turned to say, Meredith let's go, it was closing time, 2:10, 2:00 and Brian was nowhere to be seen.” Elaborating on this statement a bit more, Clint was a TA and one of the two girls, Amber Ruick, had been one of his students. He could have misremembered the other girl, Brighton Zatko being a student, after all they had been drinking for a few hours at that point. In a much later interview with Brighton in 2018 done by Kelly Bruce in a follow up podcast to Comeback, Brighton would recall that night, bringing up details that hadn’t previously been released. Brighton does admit to being somewhat inebriated that night, so details may be a bit fuzzy. She and Amber drove to the Ugly Tuna Saloona around 1:15 AM. Clint and Amber struck up conversation, leaving Brighton to talk to Brian. He seemed buzzed but not drunk, and was very flirtatious, Brighton does not remember meeting Meredith at all. She also said the Clint and Brian had been having some kind of argument later that night, but it was too loud in the bar to hear what it was about. At 1:57 when Brian was last seen on camera, he stepped into a small alcove with Brighton, and talked for probably two more minutes. They were just off-camera outside of the bar entrance, and there was a beige door that led to a construction site. Brighton put her number in Brian’s phone, then went into the Ugly Tuna to use the restroom. When she came out just moments later, she and Amber had lost track of Brian. They thought he went back in the bar, but Brighton couldn’t remember if she’d seen him go back in. Clint and Meredith said he went back into the bar, but nobody else could corroborate Clint’s memory. Brian had been known to wander away from his friends, so Clint wasn’t too worried. He also may have been upset about Brian flirting with Brighton, since he knew how serious Brian and Alexis were. At 2 AM Clint and Meredith were seen on camera leaving the Ugly Tuna. Meredith called him at 2:01 AM but his phone went straight to voicemail. She left a message asking where he was, and she and Clint were caught on camera leaving the gateway garage at 2:09 AM. They were house-sitting for a professor, so they spent the night at the professor's house and assumed Brian would find his own way home, as he often did. Brian had been planning a get together at his apartment later that night but didn’t text anyone after 1:57 AM. Whether Clint and Meredith weren’t invited is unclear. They didn’t mention a get together in any subsequent interviews, but a close friend of Brian’s confirmed he did have plans later in the night that he never followed up on. In a later interview, Randy would say that Clint said that Brian said he was going to go talk to the band. Clint was unable to confirm this statement, and this was just the first in a series of many small inconsistencies in the various eyewitness accounts from that night. Randy also said that Brian paid his tab on one of his cards, and the charge was about $11 for the Ugly Tuna, whereas The PI on the case Don Corbett says Brian paid in cash. Randy says Brian never used cash. Corbett says that Brian’s last charge on his card was from a local bookstore. Randy and Don were very close, so it’s possible one of them misspoke during an interview, as they both shared all of their information with each other. When Alexis called his phone the next day It would not ring, all she could get was his familiar voicemail saying “Hi, this is Brian. I am unable to come to the phone right now. Leave me a message. I'll get back to you quickly” Clint left him a message checking an around 11AM saying “Hey, lost you last night.” None of the friends who had been planning on visiting his apartment later heard from him, and he missed a visit he’d been planning with his father in Baltimore that day. The next day, April 2nd, Alexis called off and on a few times, assuming he had just turned off his phone. In the early hours of the next morning, around 2 am she started to really worry, telling the Dispatch in a later interview on October 1st “I was overwhelmed by this horrible feeling that something had happened. Then I was just like, 'Calm down -- you worry way too much.” In that same interview, her father Tom, said of the strange disappearance, that “It's as if God reached down and grabbed him by the nape of the neck.” When she got back to Columbus she visited his apartment, his car was still in the driveway, and his glasses were still on the bedside table. She stayed the night, waiting for him to come back, so they could get ready for their flight in the morning. Brian had spent hours planning their trip, and they’d been so excited about it just days before. When he didn’t get back before their flight left, she and Randy approached the police. Clint and Meredith were interviewed. Brian’s car, Clint’s car, and the car of the professor that Clint and Meredith had been house sitting for were searched, as well as Brian’s house and the house Clint and Meredith stayed in that night. No trace of Brian was found. Search dogs were brought in to try and track Brian’s scent around the Ugly Tuna and in the nearby construction site. It had rained in the few days before the search, so while the search dogs did seem interested in both the construction site and an alleyway leading from the ugly tuna to a nearby Wendy’s, it’s possible they were just confused by the storm. Randy put up flyers, and around 50 CPD officers canvassed nearby houses, going door to door and asking if anyone had seen him. They checked through all the vacant and abandoned buildings in the area. Hospitals and homeless shelters brought up nothing. The police, led by John Hurst also started the meticulous process of looking over the security footage both inside Gateway and at all the neighboring businesses. Alexis joined up with Randy and Derek, working with the CPD to search the area and fielding phone calls from concerned friends, and psychics. She visited Brian’s apartment every day, hoping to somehow see him back in bed as if nothing had happened. Randy, Dan, and Derek walked around, even looking in nearby dumpsters. In a later interview, Dan would say “No one should ever have to look in a dumpster for someone they love.” Just days later the first of many false sightings would happen, when someone said they thought they saw a homeless man who looked like Brian going into a seven eleven. This was dismissed by Hurst, who said an officer reviewed the footage and was certain that it wasn’t Brian. The nearby Olentangy river was searched, though it was only about two or three feet deep for the stretch that ran through the city. Both Hurst and Corbett were confident that if Brian’s body had been in the river, they would have found it. This was around when Corbett and Randy met, and Corbett formally entered the story. Don Corbett is a retired police officer who was working at a bank that Randy’s electrical company serviced. A mutual friend mentioned to Randy that he knew a retired detective who might help, and soon the two met up in a cafe. Corbett was moved by Randy’s story and agreed to work for free. He was somewhat appalled that Randy had been paying some of the psychics who’d been harassing him. In that same MSNBC interview where Clint gave his account of that night, John Hurst confirmed that The Columbus Police department had talked to Amber and Brighton, and they confirmed that they hadn’t seen Brian again that night. When asked if he had any idea who Brian may have left with Hurst replied “No, and that's the odd thing about this. Nobody is able to give us any information about Brian and who he was speaking with at the time that they left.” At one point in the interview, the host Rita Cosby said: “What I found so interesting, this guy Brian suddenly disappeared, it was about two years ago and he took off for about a week. He did call his family during that time. Do you look into maybe something in his background though and say, this guy may have a propensity for suddenly taking off?” In his response Hurst did not elaborate on that incident, saying “Well, we've looked at his background extensively and he does have the opportunity at times where he does leave the bars and leaves his friends in the bars but he's never left a situation like this where he hasn't contacted anybody or his friends were not able to locate him.” Hurst went on to say that despite the large number of security cameras from neighboring businesses, there were blind spots and areas that could have been missed due to panning cameras. Hurst spoke with the band Rock House, who had been performing that night, and they said they didn’t remember Brian talking to them at all. In addition to that, they were seen on camera leaving the bar through the service exit. In a later interview, Amber would mention that the beige door that Brian had been near could be opened, but there was a security guard very close by. John Hurst would describe the door as chained up, but easy for someone to squeeze through. In addition to this exit, the fire exit was possibly not alarmed. When the Ugly Tuna closed over a decade later, the sign was still up saying it was an emergency exit, but the employees would use it all the time, and the camera watching that exit was a dummy camera. Back in 2006 the camera on the fire exit was active, but the footage automatically recorded over itself after a certain amount of time, so by the time police viewed the footage there was nothing left from that night. On the Comeback podcast, host Kelly Bruce mentions that many people have told her this exit was not alarmed back in 2006 either. There have also been many Columbus natives who mention in online social media that the exit was not alarmed back in 2006. In any case, on that same podcast, John Hurst said he thinks the most likely option is that Brian “Got exited out” of the construction area exit. This unusual phrasing used during the interview has been the source of much speculation on the internet, leading many to wonder if foul play was involved. Though Police dogs, cadaver dogs, and Randy’s own personal dogs searched the construction area several times. Many armchair detectives theorize that he may have died in the construction area, and his body was never found, either falling into cement or getting stuck in a wall. Hurst says that this was more like a finished basement that was being walled off for different businesses, so there weren’t any deep pits or freshly poured concrete areas to fall into. It was challenging to walk through, but not deadly. For all intents and purposes, Brian Shaffer had vanished off the face of the earth. Other parents of adults who had been missing in Ohio started reaching out to Randy. Julie Popovich and Jonathan Sheasby’s parents, sent their best wishes for their search. Julie Popovich had gone to the same high school as Brian, though she had been a few grades below him. Early on, Randy was befriended by local citizen Lori Davis. She’d read about the case and decided she wanted to help, eventually running Brian’s missing person website. On April 9th, 2006 Brian Shaffer’s family and friends, along with Anthony Luzio Jr’s parents gathered at the oval, a park in the middle of Ohio State Campus, to pray for him. The families had been connected through Central Ohio Crime Stoppers, an organization led by president Kevin Miles, who tried to connect families whose cases had similarities. The reward for information about Brian’s disappearance was increased from $7,000 to $13,000, and Randy remained hopeful that Brian would be found, telling the Columbus Dispatch “You don’t just vanish into thin air, I want to find him.” On April 10th, 2006 Alexis wrote a letter to the editor published in the OSU based paper The Lantern, it read as follows: Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers for Brian Shaffer. I wanted to take a moment to remind each and every one of you who read this newspaper of the value of the "buddy system". Don't walk around alone and don't leave your friends or allow them to leave you. I wish with all my heart that I had been in Columbus and not in my hometown last Friday because I could have been with Brian and he could be safe. I wasn't, however, and I hope that all of you will learn this lesson: It is not safe to be alone at night anywhere. If something has happened to Brian, it could have been any one of the hundreds of students that were out last weekend, especially those that chose to be alone. So please remember Brian, and remember the heartache that something like this can cause your family and friends and take care of your personal safety. Also, keep Brian in your thoughts and help us bring Brian home. On April 19th, 2006, one of Brian’s fellow classmates wrote a letter to the Lantern, asking that they cover the case more aggressively, and criticizing OSU for not doing more to protect it’s students, citing other adults who had gone missing recently. She asked, “For example, why doesn't the university provide better security in a newly developed, collegiate-populated area built from a poverty-stricken, crime-ridden ghetto?”. There were divided opinions about Gateway at the time, but her letter likely voiced the opinions held by other students, that while Gateway was becoming a better area, it wasn’t crime-free by any means. The Grove City landfill was searched that same day. Police had been able to narrow down the area where any dumpsters from the campus area would have been taken to just a few yards. Officers and search dogs found nothing. In an interview with the lantern on April 20th Randy Shaffer talked about Brian and his aspirations and all that he had going for him in his life. In regards to medical school he said "He definitely got his love of medicine from his mom - he wanted to make her proud," Later that day, friends, family and volunteers met in a parking lot on high street to gather flyers, then they walked along campus, spending hours hanging up the missing person posters. As of that day, police were still looking at cameras from neighboring businesses and exploring tips that came in with the help of Crime Stoppers. Alexis told the Lantern “It's really hard, not having someone that you do absolutely everything with everyday - there's not really anything I can do to take my mind off of him." Randy said “I just want to find him, he's such a special kid. I just hope that anybody can find him," On April 28th, 2006 an unusual rally was held in the Gateway district. Nine hundred green balloons were released over the complex on a busy Friday night. Each balloon was meant to represent a missing adult from ohio. The Rally for Hope was held to bring attention to missing people and help keep them in the news. Loved ones of missing people spoke at a podium in the gateway corridor, and many participants wore green ribbons to help raise awareness. The rally addressed issues surrounding the way missing adult cases were handled in Ohio, because every county had their own regulations about what needed to be done. Many people felt that there wasn’t enough concern or active police work done when an adult went missing. During the rally, Randy said "All this has made me realize that everybody's in such a hurry these days, we worry too much about things. We forget what's really important - family life." Fellow student Rachel Leonard told the Lantern that the rally had made her be more careful when she went out, saying "People just think they're invincible. I'm more alert when I go out now. I'm more aware of my surroundings and what's going on around me." On May 9th Alexis wrote on her blog “At the same time I've been living through this nightmare, each day I have been reminded that the world is a good place, and people really care for each other. So, thank you.”
