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 risescross them off.   Do you think you will live through this?Do you deserve to?   Vengeance is mine.

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.

" 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.http://gotnews.com/breaking-charlottesville-car-terrorist-is-anti-trump…"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."

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.

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.http://wtvr.com/2016/07/07/report-at-least-2-dallas-officers-shot-at-pr… 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"

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.
