Just wait until the eclipse in a week.

Everybody who has been paying attention has a list of names. Traitors, enemies, criminals, unpunished, unavenged.

however you call them, whatever they mean to you. The time has come.

You have a week to hunt them.

When the Black Sun rises

cross them off.




Do you think you will live through this?

Do you deserve to?




Vengeance is mine.

The Gods are not with either side here. Let this be a lesson.

Kobe Beef's picture

The Gods side with Truth and Justice, same as it ever was.

Will ye thrust the spear of Odin, wield the hammer of Thor?

Or will you cower, mumbling in the darkness, as it consumes you all?

A pair of eyes, peering blindly into the abyss.

Take heed, for the Power is yours, should you but claim it.

The Sword lies in the Stone, there it is.

Draw, and be delivered.

I am going to have to go buy a pack of American Spirits for this.  This is going level 4.  Popcorn isn't enough.

I'm at least one pack and a beer ahead of you.

Perseid meteor shower climaxes tonight. Good night for 'shrooms if you got 'em.

A nuclear preemptive strike on North Korea perhaps? 

HRH Feant2's picture

Or a false-flag EMP that will be blamed on a NK submarine. Then we will have an excuse to strike NK.

If anything such as that occurred, y'all will wish you had prepped for something with something.

Because shortly afterwards, nothing would be available.

I know I'm wishing... that nothing goes false or freekin' real.

Implied Violins's picture

...or a strike on the United Nations building, just a mile from Trump tower...

A couple of outfits are saying it's this guy Joel Vangheluwe, supposedly pro-burnie, anti trump guy. Who knows.

You knew it was someone who popped finally...or a radical leftist.

This kid sounds like a typical brainwashed millenial stoner though.  Somewhat emo.

Motive (beyond psychosis)???

Theta_Burn's picture

Irregardless.. A Trump hater, antifa..g, didn't he then mow down the wrong "side"

I'd say that makes him more of an idiot then unstable..

Bigly's picture

Did he do it on purpose or was he completely out of his mind? IDK, the way he backed out of there looked like stunt driving.....

"Irregardless.. A Trump hater, antifa..g, didn't h...."

Sorry, there is no such word as "irregardless." You've got a double negative that does NOT exist.

Bigly's picture

That does not look like that kid in the pic.

Thats a south American physique

pro-burnie, anti trump guy "


That is very very interesting.  

The car had Ohio plates in the pictures on one of the previous ZH threads reporting on Charlottesville.

Pictures that are no longer on that thread..


Internet suddenly very slow here for The Starman...


Careful now.   Methinks the spoofing and the scrubing might be afoot.


"License plate searches of the 2010 Dodge Challenger that killed one and injured nearly 20 in Charlottesville found that the vehicle was registered to a Jerome Vangheluwe of Michigan."

Check this image: 



Ohio ?

GVF 1111


Why is a Michigan resident driving a car registered and plated Ohio?  Just close to the border, or...?

chunga's picture

I regret linking that on pure speculation, I'll wait on the fake news experts.

Doom Porn Star's picture

For one reason or another it was meant to be seen.

Why not have both sides of the propaganda war laid out to parse and contrast or reconcile?

Figuring out who is lying about what is half the fun of this game.

IF it's a game.   If one takes some tawdry pleasure in trying to tear it all apart and discover the truth.


Your assertion of regret signals ethical doubt and honesty.

Lets see if it's a planted fake or not.


Intelligent people understand that the disinformation campaign is not one sided.


chunga's picture

How about this for a glitch in the matrix...I just checked and it's still there. Remember the Dallas cop shooting? Scrubbing and editing is a possibilty, here's one they forgot to clean up.


This is a local CBS station in Virginia citing "CNN Wire", citing the police chief. Whooops. 

"A standoff in a parking garage reportedly ended with a fourth suspect fatally shooting himself"

Your link (about the driver) did lead to me listening to McStain's Tokyo Rose Tapes for breakfast this morning. So yes, it did have a reason...


McStain starts @ 17:40

My Hughesnet satellite connection keeps cutting out. I've had it for almost 4 yrs, and it has NEVER and I mean NEVER done this before.


Something is up.

TPTB are scanning The Hedge.

We can feel the suction.


Smile everybody.   Say hello.  

Your cameras are all on right now.  Your mics are all hot right now.

You aren't spectators any more people.   -You are all engaged whether you like it or not.

Earlier today, before I knew of the shenanigans going on, I was driving and noticed my Sirius satellite radio was losing signal for no reason.  I've had it for years, it's never done that.

Obviously a crypto-Russian with that name.

Really, a stooge/patsy/operative in service of the deep state.

Was a copy of "The Catcher in the Rye" found in the vehicle?

Remember that Langley is also in Virgina, as is Quantico.

Those images of the wounded receiving treatment? So similar to other hoaxes. Hastily wrapped roller gauze. The victims rather disinterested in their situation.

A Lincoln's War on the States re-enactment has more realism.

If they know who did it then we know it is a false flag op to frame up a fake alt right actor
