The Awakening, by the Zman

The suppression of the Hunter Biden email story is one more Jenga block removed in the tottering tower known as the average American’s trust in government and its media henchpeople. From the Zman at the burningplatform.com:

When Finnish nationalists get together every year to socialize and organize, they call their event The Awakening. It is a great term for them to use as it has multiple meanings in this context.

The image of a man waking up or snapping out of a daze is a good one to use for all Western people, especially Americans.
