So, Erm, How Did You Get that Bottle?

The question that nobody seems to want to ask.

Following the murder of Sergey Skripal with the nerve agent “novichok” which apparently, uniquely among chemical molecules, comes with a “Made in XXX” stamped on its atoms, two further victims have been found.

One Dawn Sturgess, who died, as well as her boyfriend Charlie Rowley, who did not.

One might, if one were interested in finding out whodunnit, want to suss out the connection between the two incidents. Who knows, there might be some actionable intel hiding in there?

We’ve been digging around, and this is just about the best we’ve been able to find:

LONDON — The Soviet-made nerve agent that killed a woman and left three other people critically ill was contained in a perfume bottle, the brother of one of the victims said.

Soviet-made? That’s one remarkably stable compound, considering that the Soviet Union went out of business about three decades ago. Not to mention, again, that we weren’t aware that molecules had a “made in” stamp” on them. That’s some pretty impressive engraving skills, right there. “Soviet-invented” might be more accurate but, then again, who expects accuracy from the sub-cretinous apes calling themselves “journalists” nowadays, if you know what we mean?

Charlie Rowley, 45, and his partner Dawn Sturgess, 44, were found unconscious on June 30 in the town of Amesbury in Wiltshire, southern England. Sturgess died on July 7 and Rowley remains in the hospital in serious but stable condition. British authorities said they were poisoned with Novichok nerve agent.

Matthew Rowley [that would be one of the victims’ brother — Emp.Misha] told the BBC in an interview published Sunday that his brother, who regained consciousness last week, said he picked up a perfume bottle that contained the chemical.

Last week, the London Metropolitan Police, which is investigating the incident, said they found the source of the nerve agent — a small bottle in Rowley’s house. They would not confirm any further details about the bottle.

More’s the pity, we’d say, because personally, just how he came into the possession of said bottle and passed it on to his girlfriend without having the first clue about what was in it just might be something that might aid the investigation of the whole Skripal case, but apparently that’s not a question that anybody’s interested in asking.

Unless it had already been decided whodunnit and nobody really wanted to find out who really dunnit, that is, but that’d just be silly. Yes, we know.

Clearly the Russians, after having swapped him 8 years ago after having caught him as a double agent had second thoughts and decided that, potential consequences be damned, he needed to be put down almost a decade after he’d already spilled the beans and whatever beans he might have had left were already obsolete.

Who cares about sanctions, expulsions and such?

He was safe enough to include in a spy swap (considering he was arrested in 2004, six years before he was swapped in 2010) until he wasn’t. The most recent knowledge he had of Russian ops was 6 years old when he was swapped and 14 years old when he was “murdered to keep his mouth shut.”

Makes perfect sense. If you have the mental acuity of a fern, that is.

Listen, before anybody starts throwing aspersions around about His Imperial Majesty (not that we care, we’ve always spoken our mind based on what makes sense rather than what is convenient to whatever narrative is popular at any give time), let’s just state for the record that we don’t doubt that the former KGB thug currently the president of Russia most likely weren’t shedding any more tears over Sergey Skripal’s demise than we were over the execution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, but we do find it interesting that said thug, after having had six years of being able to make Sergey conveniently “disappear” while in the clutches of the FSB (nobody would have ever known it happened), then released him only to allegedly murder him 8 years later.

But, most of all, we find it interesting why absolutely NOBODY finds it relevant to figure out how poor Dawn’s boyfriend accidentally ended up with a “perfume bottle” containing the same nerve agent that murdered poor Sergey and, completely innocently, happened to hand off said bottle that just inexplicably ended up at his home to her.

Are we the only one wondering why that is so manifestly uninteresting?

P.S.: As somebody with a background in chemistry, we’d also like to know if it’s really true that science has advanced to the point where you can not only identify a chemical through mass spectrophotometry, you can also state without a scintilla of doubt where it was manufactured? That is awesome, if true!

Why So Hysterical?

In which His Imperial Majesty allows himself the luxury of engaging in wild speculation, so no need to point it out. We know.

You surely know the old saying: “If you’re catching flak, you’re over the target”.

So one thing that we’ve been scratching our head about for the past couple of days in the precious few moments that we have time for such things is “why the hitherto unprecedented amounts of flak and hysteria over the Helsinki meeting and press conference?”

We don’t know and, unlike all of the self-appointed geniuses of the world, we’re not afraid to admit that we don’t know, but that never stopped our hyperactive mind from wandering whither it wants to go in the past.

And it’s not just the quite honestly pathetic hysteria post-meeting. One thing that caught our attention was the silly ham sandwich indictments of last Friday. “Russian spies spy, news at 11, clear the headline!”

We mean, seriously. It’s not like those indictments contain anything groundbreaking or new, they could have been true billed a year ago or in six months, so why last Friday? It’s also not like they’re ever likely to lead to any actual court cases that might have to be prosecuted, but Droopy McBassettHoundFace Mueller does seem to like those. Except when they blow up in his face like with Concord Management who, unexpectedly, answered the summons. Oops. But we digress. So why even bother?

If our “intelligence” agencies wanted to inform and advise their Commander-in-Chief prior to the meeting, then the responsible and perfectly adequate way would be to inform him, personally, and then let him use the information as needed during the meeting, but they didn’t. Instead they chose to go public, right before a historic summit between two powerful nations who haven’t been this close to a shooting war since the worst days of the Cold War.

Dumber Still…

Yes, we know, we can’t hardly believe it ourselves either, but every time we think those Prozi fascists can’t get any dumber, they prove us wrong.

Such as the communist “working girl from Yorktown Heights” bint, Alexandria Occasional-Cortex, who is, allegedly, a super bright bachelor in economics and everything Prozi New Hope:

“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs,” she said. “Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family.”

Yes, we know. Math is HARD and stuff, but surely not THAT hard?

Obviously too hard to be part of a bachelor’s in Economics in this country.

Thatisall.

President Refuses to Take Dictation from Journalist, Media Screams “Treason!”

So this clown from the enemedia gets up in front of Presidents Trump and Putin after the two have concluded hours of what they both referred to as fruitful and successful talks, daring the former to call the latter a liar to his face based on no actual presented evidence, we’re still waiting for that, as well as telling the latter to “not do it again, young gentleman, or it’s no supper for you!” (we may have paraphrased a bit there).

And the world ends for the, what?, 15th time this month?

“He’s a traitor!” (interesting mainly for the fact that we were, last we checked, not at actual war with Russia, although the Cucklicans and the other fossils from the Cold War, along with the Prozi Party, would dearly love for us to be. Treason against the United States? By doing what, exactly? Offering aid and comfort to which enemy power, exactly?)

“He threw the intelligence community under the bus!”

What intelligence agencies? You mean the ones so ably led, at various times, by messrs Mueller, McCabe, Strzok, Comey, Brennan, Clapper et al, the intelligence agencies that have, for going on TWO FUCKING YEARS now, tried to overturn the results of their own nation’s democratic and wholly legitimate election, ALL WITHOUT ONE SCINTILLA OF ACTUAL EVIDENCE PRESENTED!

THOSE intelligence agencies?

In that case we have to conclude that the complaint is that he, instead of compliantly throwing himself under the bus that they’ve been trying to run over him, turned around and gave them a nudge in return.

What a MONSTER!

Do any of those talking head clowns actually know how this thing called “diplomacy” works?

Pro-tip: Do NOT call your negotiating partner a lying liar who lies in front of the world in a condescending fashion without having at least one shiny little iota of evidence to back it up with.

But not only did he not take dictation from that blustering little turd with a press badge, he also openly questioned why at least one of those “intelligence agencies” has never shown any interest in checking out the DNC server that was, allegedly, “hacked” by the nefarious President Putin and his 133+ H4X0rZ, something that most people intelligent enough to boil an egg would consider relevant to an investigation of hacking of said server.

It’s almost as if the DNC was concerned what the FBI might find and that the FBI agreed that it would be best if they didn’t find it. Almost. As a matter of fact, quite a bit. Almost certainly, we’d say.

But again, if President Putin really DID hack the DNC servers, that would be a perfect place to look for, there’s that word again, evidence that he dunnit, wouldn’t it?

And then President Trump concluded by saying, backed up by Putin as well, that if Mueller and his Flying Klown Kirkus really want to investigate the Potemkin indictees of last Friday, then Russia was perfectly willing to let them come to Russia and interview them.

Check, and mate.

Hey, Mueller? Is that you running down to the courthouse to beg for a another postponement? Why are you running so fast, Droopy? Don’t you have bags to pack? Moscow is truly beautiful this time of year, we promise!

Fucking disgrace.

Thatisall.
