    NYC - man sets himself on fire outside Trump trial

    No word yet as to what his point was. A witness said the man was there all week carrying a sign. Another said he threw pamplets around before setting himself on fire.
    Man sets himself on fire outside Trump’s ‘hush money’ trial in NYC
    By Social Links for Joe Marino and Social Links for Khristina Narizhnaya
    Published April 19, 2024, 1:46 p.m. ET

    A man set himself on fire outside Manhattan Criminal Court Friday afternoon as former President Donald Trump’s hush money trial was underway, law enforcement sources told The Post.

    The shocking incident unfolded in a barricaded park just across the street from the 100 Centre Street courthouse around 1:30 p.m. — just as the jury was finalized in the historic case.

    “Somebody set themselves on fire,” one cop was overheard saying at the scene about 20 minutes later, as ashes smoldered on the ground in the aftermath.

    The disturbing scene unfolded in a barricaded park across the street from the courthouse.

    Disturbing footage showed him in a seated position while completely engulfed in flames — then his blackened body twitching on the ground as people rushed over with fire extinguishers...

    ...She says the man who set himself on fire has been at court all week carrying a sign.

    She says he threw papers [I'm hearing pamplets] in the air after dousing himself in some sort of liquid...

    ...As news of the man lighting himself on fire broke, Trump was in the courtroom.

    Shortly after, he spoke to a Secret Service agent, and then left the courthouse, video shows...

    immolation-


    https://twitter.com/libsoftiktok/sta...9851967951170?

    according to CNN:
    Investigators are now fanning out to collect the flyers the unknown man threw into the air, another senior law enforcement official. A CNN team on the ground observed one of the flyers. It said "NYU is a mob front" and had various allegations of wrongdoings against the school.
    According to Fox News, the man who set himself ablaze outside of the courthouse walked over to Trump supporters and began handing them “colorful pieces of paper” before shouting something and then dousing himself with gasoline.

    The Trump supporters told Fox News’ Eric Shawn that they did not know the man who self-immolated.

    Who was that dude some years ago that went stomping around on the street corner butt naked? He was a big shot in some protest group.... protesting a warlord guy in Africa or some such....

    Some said naked dude was a pawn in a MKUltra sort of thing.... Maybe Campfire Man was too?


    [edit]....... The warlord was Joseph Kony back in 2012 in Uganda. There was a documentary called "Invisible Children". The Butt Naked Dude was Jason Russell.

    Doesn't seem like it's about Trump, not directly anyway.

    He's got the right idea but I'd say a superficial understanding of how things really work.

    For example, he sees crypto as a major tool of the Elites.

    This extreme act of protest is to draw attention to an urgent and important discovery:

    We are victims of a totalitarian con, and our own government (along with many of their allies) is about to hit us with an apocalyptic fascist world coup.

    Now there's some interesting misinformation.

    My name is Max Azzarello, and I am an investigative researcher who has set himself on fire outside of the Trump trial in Manhattan.

    This extreme act of protest is to draw attention to an urgent and important discovery:

    We are victims of a totalitarian con, and our own government (along with many of their allies) is about to hit us with an apocalyptic fascist world coup.

    These claims sound like fantastical conspiracy theory, but they are not. They are proof of conspiracy. If you investigate this mountain of research, you will prove them too. If you learn a great deal about Ponzi schemes, you will discover that our life is a lie. If you follow this story and the links below, you will discover the rotten truth of ‘post-truth America’. You will learn the scariest and stupidest story in world history. And you will realize that we are all in a desperate state of emergency that requires your action.

    To my friends and family, witnesses and first responders, I deeply apologize for inflicting this pain upon you. But I assure you it is a drop in the bucket compared to what our government intends to inflict.

    Because these words are true, this is an act of revolution.
    He didn't exactly have a grip on what is and what isn't a Ponzi Scheme. Yeah, fiat money's like that because everyone has money for a while, then everything goes to hell. But that doesn't make it exactly the same. But I'd say his investigation netted him a lot of sound facts.

    Then, unfortunately, he tried to process all that from the worldview mindset of a hippie, and reality just didn't fit in that framework.

    One of the key findings of this research is that Harvard University is one of the largest organized crime fronts in history, which is how they churn out billionaires – it’s a major hub of this sprawling criminal network.

    As it turns out, dozens of the writers of The Simpsons went to Harvard. So I asked myself the question: If The Simpsons served the interests of organized crime, how would it do so?

    Well, it offers a dysfunctional family suffering from moral decay, a community incapable of solving its problems, a worker drone who slaves away for an evil billionaire, and cathartic laughs for our poor collective circumstances.
    Maybe. And maybe the early seasons of the Simpsons were just art imitating life.

    I think he had a pretty clear view of what's being perpetuated on us, though it got twisted some by his faith in classic hippy-ness. But the sight of what's coming obviously twisted him even more. He doesn't seem to have wanted to witness what comes next.

    Liberals mock the hypocrisy of conservatives; conservatives mock the hypocrisy of liberals, and our collective circumstances erode. The left shouts “All Cops Are Bastards,” which ensures they’ll be hated by the police and the public (and flies in the face of leftist theory). The public’s distrust of the government is at an all-time high, but so is the belief that we are helpless to do anything about it.
    No, he was never on the same planet as the MAGA crowd.

    There's a lot of people out there who think everything was perfect during either the Reagan or Clinton administrations. This one got to investigating, and I suspect he saw that photo of GHW Bush and Slick Willie on that Arkansas airfield, smuggling drugs for the CIA, and snapped. Suddenly all his infinite faith in government was shattered.

    NYC-Anarcho-Communist sets himself on fire outside Trump trial

    Watch: Man Sets Self on Fire in Front of Trump Courthouse Live on CNN

    https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2024...e-live-on-cnn/

    PAM KEY 19 Apr 2024



    [WARNING: Disturbing Content]

    A man set himself on fire in front of the Manhattan courtroom on Friday as a CNN live broadcast reported on the jury being seating in former President Donald Trump’s trial.

    Anchor Laura Coates said, “We have a man who has literally set fire to himself. A man has emblazoned himself outside of the courthouse just now. Our cameras are turning right now. A man has now lit himself on fire. Outside of the courthouse in Manhattan, where we’re waiting history to be made. A full jury panel is gone. We are watching a man who was fully emblazoned in the front of the courthouse today. We’re watching multiple fires breaking out around his body and person. We have seen an arm that has been visible that has been engulfed in total flames. There is chaos, and it’s happening. People are wondering right now if people are in danger. I’m looking across the courtyard. There is a man racing with aid.”

    She added, “We have members of security details. NYPD is rushing to the scene. They are trying to come now. Officers are on the scene. A fire extinguisher is right now present being put on this man to try to put out…People are climbing over barricades to try to separate the public, to put out the flame on this man. He has lit himself on fire in front of the courthouse right now. We are watching as the flames…We can smell the air. I can smell the burning of some sort of flesh. I can smell the burning of some sort of agent being used as well as an accelerant to put that fire…I smell an actual fire extinguisher having been displayed.” Coates then continued to report what she was seeing onsite.

    Maybe this will become a "thing" amongst the Communist left.

    Because these words are true, this is an act of revolution.
    --
    Last March, a billionaire named Peter Thiel started a bank run on Silicon Valley Bank. I
    knew enough about Thiel that I found this incredibly suspicious: My hunch was that
    this was intentional, though I couldn’t fathom why.

    I began investigating online, and quickly found cryptocurrency’s fingerprints all over it.
    The bank run occurred just days after Silvergate Bank – which catered almost
    exclusively to crypto companies – collapsed. Meanwhile, several crypto cheerleaders
    were all over financial media warning of a regional banking crisis, and nobody in media
    was addressing the clear crypto connections.

    I dug deep into the financials of Thiel’s venture capital rm Founders Fund and
    eventually uncovered the following, all proven many times over.
    Cryptocurrency is our first planetary multi-trillion-dollar Ponzi scheme. It was
    expressly created for this purpose by a laundry list of rich and powerful people out
    of Stanford/Silicon Valley and Harvard/Facebook.

    The March 2023 bank failures were all intentional: the banks were used to move
    out stolen Ponzi money. This signals that they’re no longer dumping cash in to
    keep the cryptocurrency Ponzi afaoat, and that it will soon go insolvent, as all
    Ponzis must.

    When the Ponzi scheme goes insolvent, it will take down half the stock market
    with it: The perpetrators used their major companies to pipe into the blockchain so
    they could funnel money out from the crypto exchanges. This includes Google,
    Tesla, Apple, PayPal, Facebook, Disney, Walmart, Target, InBev, Zoom, and
    countless others.

    It is a Ponzi scheme so large that it created global inflation, which is why the
    price of Bitcoin has been a remarkable leading indicator for inflation rates. Victims
    who bought crypto don’t realize their money has already been stolen, so the money
    gets double-counted by the victims and the criminals who stole it.

    As it turns out, our elites are awash in Ponzi schemes. Stanford’s StartX.com
    investment fund and Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Program for Evolutionary Dynamics’ he ran
    at Harvard are both fake-science Ponzi factories that these schools have invested
    billions in: They are allied with fraudulent companies that use smoke and mirrors to
    promise miraculous new technology, but always collapse while the perpetrators
    only get richer.

    Funneling trillions of dollars in stolen cash through the stock market created the
    largest stock-market anomaly in history. The stock chart signature of a Ponzi scheme
    is a massive increase (while they stack up cash) and then a massive fall (as
    they funnel out the stolen cash). This chart shape appeared in all the companies
    listed above. In order to explain the massive anomaly, our criminal government
    unleashed COVID on the world and told us these were the “stay at home stocks.”
    Ponzi schemes are vicious beasts, and cryptocurrency is history’s largest Ponzi by orders
    of magnitude. It could best be described as an economic doomsday device,
    intentionally made to shatter the world economy.

    The U.S. government is fully involved in this totalitarian con: To illustrate its bipartisan
    support, I’ll note that nearly every participant of the Clinton Global Initiative has ties to
    cryptocurrency, while two of the biggest tech VCs who participated are Trump
    associates Josh Kushner and Anthony Scaramucci.

    To better understand our form of government, I will point you to one of the most
    astonishing pieces of stand-alone evidence I’ve found: Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton’s
    1988 DNC speech where he nominated Mike Dukakis for president against George H.W.
    Bush. The speech is a vile, mean-spirited roast of Dukakis that makes no sense
    whatsoever: For Clinton to ruthlessly attack a member of his own party should have
    been political suicide, and he repeatedly mocks Dukakis’ noble and earnest qualities.
    Notably, actor Rob Lowe, who was supporting Dukakis, was victim of a teen sex
    blackmail operation at the DNC that year. Since we know Clinton is a close associate
    with teen sex blackmail artist Jeffrey Epstein, we can suddenly make perfect sense of the
    nonsensical speech by applying this lens: Bill Clinton is a cocky mob boss who
    blackmailed Mike Dukakis because Dukakis thought his job was to help the public. He
    teases out the future public revelation that Kitty Dukakis drank rubbing alcohol, and
    offers a strange anecdote about the crack epidemic that reveals he is an exceedingly
    proud drug runner.

    What does this revelation tell us? That our government is conning us completely. That
    Bill Clinton was secretly on (former CIA Director) George H.W. Bush’s side, and that the
    Democrat vs. Republican division has been entirely manufactured ever since: Clinton is
    with Bush; Gore is with Bush; Trump is with Hillary, and so on. When they present
    themselves in public, they are acting as characters that are against one another,
    practicing kayfabe as wrestlers do.

    As it turns out, we have a secret kleptocracy: Both parties are run by financial criminals
    whose only goals are to divide, deceive, and bleed us dry. They divide the public against
    itself and blame the other party while everything gets worse and more expensive and
    handful of people take all the money. Since it is fully parasitic, a secret kleptocracy is an
    incredibly unstable form of government – left to its own devices, it can only lead to fascism
    or failed state.
    Some of his manifesto. The usual hits.

    'Revolutionary Suicide': UCLA Psychiatrists Cheer Self-Immolation in Leaked Audio
    Med school talk glorified self-harm, violated CDC guidance, experts say
    https://freebeacon.com/campus/revolu...-leaked-audio/
    {Aaron Sibarium | 12 April 2024}

    UCLA medical school’s psychiatry department hosted a talk earlier this month that glorified self-immolation as a form of "revolutionary suicide," raising concerns from prominent doctors and deepening a public relations crisis that has embroiled the elite medical school.

    The talk, "Depathologizing Resistance," was delivered on April 2 by two psychiatry residents at UCLA, Drs. Ragda Izar and Afaf Moustafa, under the auspices of the department’s diversity office and UCLA’s Health Ethics Center, according to slides and emails obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

    The remarks centered on the suicide of Aaron Bushnell, the U.S. serviceman who set himself on fire in February to protest U.S. support for Israel—or, as Izar put it, "indigenous Palestine."

    I was just about to post this. @Anti Federalist, "leftist" or not, this dude was not wrong about Trump and Biden both doing a fascist coup. Except it already happened. Trump gave the vaccine companies immunity for their poison and Biden mandated it. Trump did EVERTHING Fauci wanted when it came to the lockdowns! Imagine what would have happened if a President Hillary Clinton had tried to do what Trump got away with? There were armed protests in Michigan over Whitmere's lockdowns. Had Hillary been president they would have happened nationwide. Trump got away with it by being republican.

    It's amazing what a hard sell this is. If Americans could see this, good things could finally start happening. But Americans would rather eat glass than open their eyes to it, not that I blame them.

    Reelect Trump! Resurrect the antichrist! And if they try to obviously steal the election and rub our noses in it again, give them what they want and install him Dictator-for-Life! Because his dictatorship had so much less child mutilation than Biden's!!

    A childishly simple, but potentially very effective strategy.
