Conspiracy Terrorism Surrounding Nancy Pelosi - "Stochastic Terrorism" From Juan Cole - October Closes with 193 Executions/Homicidios in Tijuana

Just a quick blog because it's been a long day; we went up to San Diego for me to go through the Nuclear Tests at Cardiology (about four hours long) which was sort of an ordeal, but everyone was really nice. As far as I know, that was the last hurdle to pass before they can do the knee surgery. It looks like...and I am unsure if there will be any more delays, I might go in during December or even January for the operation, but what a wait ! Exhausted.

Last night I started reading the reports on the conspiracy theories promoted by Trump and knuckleheads like Elon Musk attacking Nancy and Paul Pelosi and it made me ill. Speaking of Musk, finally after years I joined twitter about two months ago - I never really tweeted anything but it gave me the opportunity to read people like Robert Reich and others and I thought wow this is kind of neat.

Since the Musk take over, I do not feel comfortable there at all. So, tomorrow I'm going to bow out.

 Here's the latest on the conspiracy theories surrounding Nancy Pelosi which are in such bad taste and absolutely lewd, abusive and scurrilous they are sickening - which just goes to show that the audience they were intended to humor or believe to be true are pure white trash. The perpetrators are unspeakable, but their intent I believe ties into the concept of "stochastic terrorism."

Conspiracy Theories Aided By Musk, Trump Soar After Paul Pelosi Attack

More importantly and due to going back and forth between Vets and Halloween, I did not have a chance to put this report up:

The Stochastic Ex-President: How Trump Set Up The Pelosis For Attack 


 "Ann Arbor (Informed Comment) – President Joe Biden noted Friday evening — concerning the assailant who fractured Paul Pelosi’s skull with a hammer in the Pelosi home in San Francisco — “that the same chant was used by this guy that they have in custody that was used on January 6, the attack on the U.S. Capitol.” Both that attacker and the insurgents chanted “Where’s Nancy Pelosi?” That is, the president suggested, the attack on the Pelosis was a continuation by other means of the violence that Donald Trump unleashed on January 6, 2021.

A lot of the blame for the demonization of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi must be laid at the feet of former President Donald Trump, who cultivated violent militiamen as his black shirts, and has often vilified Pelosi, putting a target on her and her family. Trump called her “Crazy Nancy” from a San Francisco district that he characterized as “filthy” and “dirty.” He spoke of his first impeachment in the House for holding up military aid to Ukraine to blackmail President Volodomyr Zelensky into manufacturing dirt on the Bidens as the “bogus impeachment scam.”

In a bizarre, rambling letter on the impeachment, Trump accused Pelosi of waging “open war on democracy,” of “violating your oaths of office,” and “breaking your allegiance to the constitution.”

In other words, he called her a traitor to the United States.

ISIL specialized in what has been called “stochastic terrorism,” whispering to unbalanced people on social media that “wouldn’t it be nice if some pious person blew up X?”

“Stochastic” is a fancy way of saying “random.” Basically, rather than running a terrorist cell with a hierarchy of command and control and direct agents carrying out the deed, the stochastic terrorist puts out a call for lone wolves to do their thing. They then cannot be traced immediately back to the origin.

Molly Amman and J. Reid Meloy explain, “Stochastic terrorism has been defined as the incitement of a violent act through public demonization of a group or individual. Stated another way, the term has been said to mean “acts of violence by random extremists, triggered by political demagoguery.”

As I pointed out in 2018, Trump’s methods closely resemble those of stochastic terrorists.

Trump unleashed the mob on Jan. 6 with his tweets, in one of the most serious acts of stochastic terrorism in modern U.S. history. Mark Follman wrote insightfully at Mother Jones about Trump’s malevolent influence on the insurrectionists. In essence, the San Francisco assailant was part of the same operation, only he acted later than the others.

During the Republican shut-down of the government in 2019, Trump canceled a planned trip by Speaker Pelosi to Afghanistan and some other countries. He then suggested she fly commercially if she had to go, given that government employees were not then being paid — because the Republicans wouldn’t fund the government.

Pelosi in reply pointed out that broadcasting to the world that she might be flying commercially put her and her delegation in danger, says Molly Mulshine at Elle. Pelosi said, “The fact that they would leak that we were flying commercial is a danger not only to us but to other people . . . very irresponsible on the part of the president.”

He went on to imply that Pelosi is an extremist and beyond the pale, Mulshine points out. He tweeted, “Nancy Pelosi has behaved so irrationally & has gone so far to the left that she has now officially become a Radical Democrat.”

In Republicanese, he may as well have just come out and called her a Communist and been done with it.

In 2020, asked about his disgraced former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, Trump said, “Pelosi is a sick woman. She’s got a lot of problems, a lot of mental problems. We’re dealing with people that have to get their act together for the good of the country.” 



As far as Bolsonaro, he still has not conceded and it's possible there may be more problems from him and his followers in the future, just like Trump.



The numbers are high...just about everywhere....

Finally, the last month of October closed out with 193 executions/homicidios in Tijuana, giving the city a YTD total of 1,672 dead.
