Ho ho ho! It’s that time of year again. Here’s JHK’s holiday classic: A Christmas Orphan.

11-year-old Jeff Greenaway hears his mom and dad argue one night after an office Christmas party. He infers from their garbled squabble that he is an orphan, found in a willow basket on the welcome mat outside their New York apartment. Thinking now that his parents are imposters, he steals away to Grand Central Station and buys a train ticket to Drakesville, Vermont, where he intends to start life all over again.

Wait a minute. They’re already dead. Brexit just reveals that not everybody’s brains have been eaten. A viral contagion now threatens the zombified institutions of daily life, especially the workings of politics and finance. Just as zombies exist only in the collective imagination, so do these two principal activities of society operate mainly on trust, an ephemeral product of the hive-mind.

When things fall apart in stressed complex systems, they tend to fall apart fast. It’s called phase change. Too many things in 21st century life have depended on sheer trust that the people-in-charge know what they are doing. That trust has subsisted on the doling out of money-from-nothing: debt, reckless bond issuance. TARP, QEs, bailouts, bail-ins, Operation Twists, Ponzi schemes… the whole sad-ass armamentarium of banking necromancy. The politicians let it get out of hand. Things that can’t go on don’t, and now they won’t.

The politics of Great Britain are now falling apart landslide-style. Since just about everybody in or near power can be blamed for the national predicament, there’s nobody to turn to, at least not yet. The Labour party just acted out The Caine Mutiny, starring Jeremy Corbyn as Captain Queeg. The Tory Cameron gave three months notice without any plausible replacement in view. Now Cameron’s people are hinting in the media that they can just drag their feet on Brexit, that is, not do anything to enable it from actually happening for a while. Of course, that’s what the monkeyshines of banking and finance have done: postponed the inevitable reckoning with the realities of our time: growing resource scarcity, population overshoot, climate change, ecological holocaust, and the diminishing returns of technology.

Britain illustrates the problem nicely: how to produce “wealth” without producing wealth. It’s called “the City,” their name for the little district of London that is their Wall Street. In the absence of producing real things, the City became the driver of the UK’s economy, a ghastly parasitical organism that functioned as the central transfer station for the world’s swindles and frauds, churning the West’s dwindling residual capital into a slurry of fees, commissions, arbitrages, rigged casino bets, and rip-offs. In the process, it enabled the European Central Bank (ECB) to run the con-job that the European Union (EU) became, with the fatal distortions of credit that have put its members into a ditch and sent the private European banks off a cliff, Thelma and Louise style.

The next stage of this protean global melodrama is what happens when currencies and interest rates become completely unglued from their assigned roles as patsies in financial racketeering. Sooner or later we’ll know what’s going on in the vast shadowy gloaming of “derivatives,” especially the “innovative” arrangements that affect to be “insurance” against losses in currency and interest rate “positions” — bets made on the movements of these things. When currencies rise or fall quickly, these so-called “swaps” are “triggered,” and then some hapless institution is left holding a big bag of dog-shit. A zombie is a terrible thing to behold, but a zombie holding a bag of dog-shit is like unto the end of the world.

Once this contagion starts burning, the people-in-charge won’t be able to quell it the way they did last time: by drowning it in torrents of money-from-nowhere. At least not without inducing real-deal inflation, the kind that leads to epochal ruin and more intense political upheaval: the nation-changing kind. We’re about five minutes away from that in the USA already, with the loathsome duo of Hillary and Trump putting on a Punch and Judy show for a disgusted public. If nothing else, Hillary and Trump represent the withering of political trust in America. The parties that spawned them are also whirling around the drain of credibility. They won’t survive in the form we knew them.

Who knows what comes out of this vacuum, what rough beast slouches towards Washington.

    England, home of the industrial revolution, has just sown the seed for the end of globalisation

    It used to be thought that an energy crisis may mark the beginning of the end, then a financial crisis seemed more likely as it was realised that debt would break the system

    But now the white working class poor, left by the London government to rot in squalid northern cities after it became fashionable to make kettles and iPhones alike in the new slave factories of the east; they have pulled the plug

    Not knowingly, but buoyed to ‘take control’, they have kicked out at the bigger system. The architects – Boris, Gove et al – are reeling in shock at what they have done, and admitted there was no plan! So, rudderless we set sail to the new world

      Yes, I’d agree that those who got left-behind by the recent experiment with globalism decided that even if it caused problems, it would be better for everyone to have a share of the pain as opposed to a few enjoying all the gains.

      • Being There June 27, 2016 at 9:52 am #

        The very idea that people be left behind means it’s an unworkable system as it stands. The fact that our leadership can stand up and say we set up a system that leaves a huge part of the population in limbo and falling is unacceptable.

        Systems that our leadership set up in the world need to include all in scope and not leave people in the dust. It screams failure. It screams that there have to be alternatives and someone designed this with only 2 groups in mind. The central banks and the global CEO class.

        Get back to the drawing board, guys or globalism is dead in the water!

        • lateStarter June 27, 2016 at 10:03 am #

          Sure, I agree that is unacceptable and immoral, But for the people that set it up and benefit from it, it is neither. I don’t think that any amount of re-jiggering is going to help the beast at this point. It has been living on borrowed time for a long time.

          Of course as Aklein mentions below, those who are in charge now are not going to go quietly into the night. We can only expect the screws to tighten on the way down.

            I see that the powers that be are already taking advantage of the Brexit vote, by laying blame for the coming major financial crash on the British voters.
            I predict they will attempt to “listen to” a large number of whiners who will beg them to put it back the way it was.
            Freddie Gray was an example of those ‘left out’.

            For many of us it is simply old fashioned democracy. Sorry to be archaic. The old idea that a polity has leaders that are elected, and can be deposed, by ballot. The EU is run by an unelected oligarchy that makes Ancien Regime France look positively liberal.

            Britain is in a flux right now, but it isn’t all about immigration, trust me. True, that’s hugely significant, when we had a population increase of half a million only last year. But no, for me and my friends the issue is representation. Americans will understand this but it’s a novelty here, apparently.

            We don’t want unelected brutes like Junker dictating to us, with no means of response. Britain, for all its faults, is a decent democracy. Or was.

            We simply want representative democracy back. It isn’t perfect but it’ll do.

            The EU as it is constituted is a brutal, self-serving club for unelected but well connected and self-perpetuating technocrats. If you don’t understand just google up Ancien Regime France. We have had enough of this dictatorship in England. It seems the Scots want more though.

            We just want out. It’s not difficult to comprehend, but he so-called elites are in cahoots with the dictators so they self-servingly manipulate for the zombie status quo. But It’s over!

      Excellent point RobH; as the industrial age unwinds, slavery is reintroduced on a grand scale, whether it be in the Asian factories or the sweat shops and farm fields of America where so-called ‘undocumented workers’ toil for sub-minimum wages…all this to keep corporate profits fat!

      This makes sense – Historically it wasn’t reformers like John Brown, Stowe and Lincoln who killed slavery – it was the machine. But the machine is starting to sputter, even as it grows more complex and technofied. And the specter of that age-old institution, slavery, is realized.

      England, home of the industrial revolution, has just sown the seed for the end of globalisation

      But will globalization let them go. The globalization horse left the barn long ago. That horse may not come back until the four horsemen ride back with it. Perhaps these lyrics echo the situation.

      “Mirrors on the ceiling,
      The pink champagne on ice
      And she said “We are all just prisoners here, of our own device”

      As England decides to run for the door and find the passage back to the place they were once before, perhaps they will now hear:

      “Relax, ” said the night man,
      “We are programmed to receive.
      You can check-out any time you like,
      But you can never leave! ”

      And just like America, British government officials assure the citizens that the economy is strong enough to withstand Brexit.

      As far as the end of globalism I think it will take more than this to unravel what they have spent generations putting together. It might be the start, but what I heard today was that the vote is not binding on Parliament or they may call for another vote. Either way, there is a chance that it will never really come to pass.

    Make no mistake about one consequence we should expect; those who waxed rich and powerful during these decades of concerted fraud will not easily give up their positions nor the lifestyle to which they’ve become accustomed. So what will they do when things start to become unglued? Probably kick over the chessboard. When the chessboard falls and all the pieces scatter across the floor and the board itself breaks, this result of that kick will be indistinguishable from the the same chaos that will unfold from the decades of mis- and malfeasance. The real cause of the chaos will be masked by the chessboard being kicked over. So the question then is, what’s the best way to kick that chessboard over with lots of plausible deniability? The answer is obvious; War over some putatively “just” cause. Some cause vaguely ideological should do, perhaps “freedom”, “democracy”, “hate crimes”, “terrorism”. There are plenty of choices. Then when the dust settles, those left standing will be so worn out, so psychically devastated, they will hold their tongues and not criticize anything for a couple of generations, since they will be so happy just to have survived. That usually makes short shrift of any potential recrimination for bad deeds that precipitated the Grand Potlatch. This technique for social governance and resetting has been used for eons. It works.

    • Petro June 27, 2016 at 9:55 am #

      I would say it was the Exit the EU voters who have kicked the chessboard over. Now the elite and their political handmaidens will be rushing about trying to pick up the pieces. It will be ugly, yes. But you can only lie to and treat like dirt overworked & underpaid people until they “burn the motherf**ker down” (or, as you say, kick over the chessboard).

      They’re like Trump supporters. They don’t care that he’s an asshole and unfit. In fact, the more the elites & experts make those claims, the more they WANT him—whatever gets their overlords pissed. The US presidential election is about being fed up, with many voters seething with anger and resentment. Which is why, if the Dems want to win, going with (the loathsome and dangerous) Hillary is so incredibly stupid.

      • lateStarter June 27, 2016 at 10:13 am #

        I don’t think the board has been kicked over yet. When it does happen it will be the ‘elite and their political handmaidens’ that you mention that blame the ugly rabble for ruining everything. The elite will be the ones that don’t like the direction things are going and decide to go for the reset button.

        • messianicdruid June 27, 2016 at 2:06 pm #

          The chess board hasn’t been kicked over yet, but the Brits have said “check” again. We can debate the number of moves remaining, and a few could call it definitely. But as said above the rich mattoids will kick the board over rather than swing from a rope.

          • SteveO June 28, 2016 at 9:28 am #

            I agree. The signs that the chess board has been kicked will be things like bank holidays and troops in the streets.

        • Petro June 29, 2016 at 12:44 pm #

          Okay, okay—So the exit voters have SAWN OFF ONE LEG of the table the chess board is sitting on, and it is wobbling ominously…

    “A zombie is a terrible thing to behold, but a zombie holding a bag of dog-shit is like unto the end of the world.” No, a zombie holding a bag of dog shit is funny. All that needs to make it funnier is setting the bag on fire. Of course, the zombie will still try to eat your brains, but you’ll get a good laugh out of it. Just don’t step on the burning bag once you shoot the zombie in the head.

    Well, the beast that slouches toward Washington? Let’s just say it’s not gonna be good. The American people are left with two unthinkable choices for PODUS…..and they’re furious with the apartheid created in the financial sector and CEO transnational class.
    These are people who are so risk immune that they can’t be prosecuted. They are the untouchables and when we see the frauds one after another, it becomes untenable. You just can’t run things like this and expect people to accept this.

    I’ve been saying that if the British oligarchs try to undo this it will reveal that democracy is an empty exercise not just in GB but across the board and IMHO that is worse for the ruling class than BREXIT.

    Greece is the poster nation to show why nobody should want to remain in the EU. It’s a globalist failure and like I’ve said before it also serves the transnationals as a one-shop stop for bribery. Instead of taking the time and money to bribe 28 separate countries, companies like Monsanto only need to spend money and effort once and we all know the EU and it’s troika are totally corrupt.

    So kudos to the Brits for standing up to the Neo colonization of the world for banks and the CEO class. We begin to reconnoiter with the idea of the modern nation state with a contract with the people. It works and is worth fighting for.

    • orbit7er June 27, 2016 at 10:11 am #

      A couple of interesting articles from the usually staid New York Times shed an interesting light on our true situation. One is a fascinating article on “Peak Sand” which points out that just like all other resources, oil, fish, water that even lowly sand is finite! :

      nytimes.com/2016/06/23/opinion/the-worlds-disappearing-sand.html

      The other is an excellent investigative piece on the Privatization/Piratization/Cannibalization of Emergency Services by the bankster Hedge Funds swollen with money from QE.
      A few points to note:
      Benjamin Franklin, still recognized as one of the founders of the American Republic, was the foresighted founder of the world’s first public Fire Dept as the private Fire Dept’s were allowing houses and parts of Philadelphia to just burn if they had not paid ransom to their private Fire Dept.
      The other is that many towns and cities have been forced to privatize due to budget shortfalls in the billions across the USA from being still forced to pay the banksters for interest rate swaps even as the Fed gave the banksters literally trillions at %0.25 interest!

        orbit7er: “the private Fire Dept’s were allowing houses and parts of Philadelphia to just burn if they had not paid ransom to their private Fire Dept.”

        That still goes on today, or at least the example that came to mind was just a few short years ago:

        usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2011/12/07/9272989-firefighters-let-home-burn-over-75-fee-again

        This kind of thing is a pure scam and always has been. It secures only the interests of a small number of people to extract benefits and profit from the pain of others. The solution to travesties like this has long been obvious: public provision of basic services like firefighting, roads and bridges, and dare I say it, medical care. No one can carry on grifting you without your implicit permission.

          ~ “No one can carry on grifting you without your implicit permission.”

          To stop it now will cause extreme hardship and even bloodshed for a lot of people. A generation ago (1960s – I was born in the 50s so I didn’t realize it until much later) it could have been stopped, but Nixon showed politicians what not to do. Enron, Worldcom and Adelphia showed corporate leaders what not to do. They learn from their mistakes.

      Nobody is doing any reconnoitring. If they were Bernie Sanders name would be on everyone’s lips. At least in America. Idiocy simply comes in many forms. The idea that change will automatically lead to an improvement is a deluded romantic dream. Rather the lizard people will simply double down and what will emerge from this chaos is more chaos not less as they use it to their advantage and enrich themselves still more.

      Contract with the people, ha. The people no longer think of ‘we’ but ‘me’ and unless you can buy a new contract with the people for $19.95 plus shipping and handling it’s not going to happen.

        Agreed, but somewhere in that is a consideration of national steerage above globalist loss of sovereignty whether the people are aware of it or not remains to be seen.
        It is an object lesson and the other members of the EU should take note.
        The French and Italians will despise Monsanto. There will be much unrest.

        As I’ve said, the elite may play their hand badly and when this happens the mask really come off. That is an important consideration because the masses still think there is something called democracy where they can exercise their vote. If the mask comes off the elite will have no credibility.

      Your comment about the untouchables being risk immune brings to mind that utterance by Al Gore regarding some activity on his part which was apparently an somewhat obviously unethical. Gore’s response about his untoward behavior was that there was “…no controlling legal authority.” It seems that Big Al never heard of the concept of “Natural Law” which requires no “controlling legal authority”. Bottom line, Big Al subscribes to what is termed “legal minimalism”, a concept in which a behavior which is not specifically declared illegal is not just legal, but also permitted, and possibly even virtuous. I’ve always thought that Big Al let the cat out of the bag regarding how he and his elite ilk regard the law, ethics, morals, and so on. Their interpretation of these categories of human concern which drive civilization itself is very convenient indeed. Al, as we know, is something of an arbiter regarding inconvenient truths, so likely has some insight into the convenient ones as well.

        “Natural Law”

        1. a body of unchanging moral principles regarded as a basis for all human conduct.

        2. an observable law relating to natural phenomena.

        From Aquinas Natural Law is:

        1. the theory of divine providence

        2. the theory of practical rationality

        So there we have it “Natural Law” is either “gawds” law or any law which humans can conceive of to justify their opinions at any applicable point in time. Hell-of-a-deal

      Face it: the interest, concern, and love that you people all have to minorities is exactly what you should have for your own people. But they are harder to love, right?

            “In other words, you think they need diversity. Ten million Blacks and Muslims can only make Poland more Polish, right?”

            Must be a site bug but no reply button was shown. Anyway, NO.
            Poland has already refused to take any ‘refugees’. There is some comfort living in country that is 99% white and Catholic. I was refering to the fact that PIS wants to limit the control the EU has over Poland’s internal affairs. I also don’t want Monsanto shoved down our throats. PIS is following the playbook of Hungary.

            My fear is that they are saying the right things but for the wrong reasons (just to get re-elected).

    The poem sez:

    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,

    A description which describes either Trump or Clinton so a bag of flaming dog shit burns on the front porch while we wait for it to be stomped down. But the swindles and frauds that suck skin off the flesh of the capital of investments have been around before the horror of either Trump or Clinton rose up to threaten the world with their pith and self interest. The world’s swindles and frauds we blame on pigmen but trust has been lost at all levels of society. Financial shenanigans are only a symptom of a greater pervasive rot.

    Jim – all the Zombies are not already dead.

    You haven’t been to an Orlando theme park lately have you?

    What about the hordes of garden-variety zombies at the local mall? Wal Mart?

    How about all the zombies on EBT? – If those payments stop you had better believe they will eat any brain ( and any other parts) they can find.

    And what of the zombie machine called the mass media? It is not dead – not in the least, not yet anyway. The workers in that zombie factory are living large on advertising and spectacles – that keep the rest of the untermenschen zombies pacified for, at least , the next 12 hours.

    Should the entire underpinnings of Hyper-finance Capitalism fail ( and as of this morning the markets have settled into a nice relaxed “correction” ) then all the zombies together are going to have one hell of a shit firestorm party – and we will all be invited.

    Huzzah, huzzah, huzzah for the Brexit.

          I reject that. The essence of my genius if genius it be, is openness to the past, present and future. As William James said upon his eager return to America: The past weighs very heavily upon them there. The ancients attained greatness by focusing on their present.

          And again, it’s so easy for you to misunderstand since you’ve never flown. The Present of the Sage encompasses all three times. The present of the animal and the animal man is stuck in the sensorial present.

            Janos,

            Several seasons ago I did watch the first segment in it’s premier offering…watched most of it…. It was when one character said to another “…the ( XYZ ) have no word in their language for remorse” that I exclaimed something to the effect that the show was just “Star Trek” with swords…a nerd-fest. I know I was being overly judgmental and dismissive, and elitist to boot, but I’m old, ossified, and…did I mention old?

            There is no doubt that the show has quality, and at some point I will watch the series…if and when I am in better humor. I will, on the short term, listen to the opening theme….

            By the way…in your youth, did you ever learn to speak Klingon?

          • Janos Skorenzy June 28, 2016 at 1:40 pm #

            The series is increasingly dumbed down from one season to the next. But some gems survive from the books:

            “Oh, I think not,” Varys said, swirling the wine in his cup. “Power is a curious thing, my lord. Perchance you have considered the riddle I posed you that day in the inn?”
            “It has crossed my mind a time or two,” Tyrion admitted. “The king, the priest, the rich man—who lives and who dies? Who will the swordsman obey? It’s a riddle without an answer, or rather, too many answers. All depends on the man with the sword.”
            “And yet he is no one,” Varys said. “He has neither crown nor gold nor favor of the gods, only a piece of pointed steel.”
            “That piece of steel is the power of life and death.”
            “Just so… yet if it is the swordsmen who rule us in truth, who do we pretend our kings hold the power? Why should a strong man with a sword ever obey a child king like Joffrey, or a wine-sodden oaf like his father?”
            “Because these child kings and drunken oafs can call other strong men, with other swords.”
            “Then these other swordsmen have the true power. Or do they?” Varys smiled. “Some say knowledge is power. Some tell us that all power comes from the gods. Others say it derives from law. Yet that day on the steps of Baelor’s Sept, our godly High Septon and the lawful Queen Regent and your ever-so-knowledgeable servant were as powerless as any cobbler or cooper in the crowd. Who truly killed Eddard Stark, do you think? Joffrey, who gave the command? Ser Ilyn Payne, who swung the sword? Or… another?”
            Tyrion cocked his head sideways. “Did you mean to answer your damned riddle, or only to make my head ache worse?”
            Varys smiled. “Here, then. Power resides where men believe it resides. No more and no less.”
            “So power is a mummer’s trick?”
            “A shadow on the wall,” Varys murmured, “yet shadows can kill. And ofttimes a very small man can cast a very large shadow.”
            Tyrion smiled. “Lord Varys, I am growing strangely fond of you. I may kill you yet, but I think I’d feel sad about it.”
            “I will take that as high praise.”

    To ease Britain back into sovereignty, there’s only ONE pool of wealth that remains untapped. The Rothschild crime family. They have acquired roughly 200 years of stolen wealth from the British nation and it’s time to CLAW IT BACK with the Force Majeur of political prerogative, acting on behalf of its citizens.

    The Rothschild wealth, alone, would enable the British government to buy back all of its former automakers from foreign owners, fully fund NHS to where it can function properly, re-nationalize the Royal Post Office, and begin systematic removal of 3rd Worlders and Muslims by ATTRITION. Incremental removal can be done via regular police action for crimes. As they are caught for crimes…, instant deportation INCLUDING all who came in with them! With Muslims, there are no innocent parties or bystanders.

    For the immediate short term, the British people must seal the deal and put in Nigel Farage in with a sizable mandate PLUS enough Nativist and Populist reps that can give PM Farage the support he needs to give England a long overdue National Enema. A great stinking brown tide that will wash over Europe but, then it’s up to the E.U. to continue the Enema until the brown tide is flushed back to where it came from.

      In other words, Britain would suddenly become a pariah nation, a Nazi state and would be given the Nazi treatment, this time by “our” allies in Europe. The fighting men are there: millions of unemployed, unemployable, illiterate even in their own languages, Muslim youth.

        Brother Nathanael of YouTube fame is more erudite in naming THEM by name. The first order of business is to call THEM out and repudiate their claims on mankind by reason of the Talmud. Modern-day Draculas will hiss and bare their fangs when choice parts of the Talmud are opened and quoted in public. The Prime Ministers of Israel all have juicy quotes that dare not be exposed, or acknowledged, in the MSM.

        At some point, Britain must defend its right to exist and that existence is manifested in its White population and centuries of culture brought forward. That accrual having been arrested in the 1960’s. Scotland and Ireland MUST put aside their political differences with London and realize that England’s fight for self-preservation is their fight as well. Scotland and Ireland can goad, shame, and kick England to do what is right but, it must be England that leads the charge. The NATIONAL ENEMA must start in England.

        If War comes, then so be it. Britain cannot allow itself to be nibbled away until it dies; fearing to exercise its right to live. The art of stealing just a little bit at at time, but not enough to provoke a response, must now be responded to as though an all-out attack took place. The secular government AND The Crown MUST jointly seize the Rothschild wealth, nullify ex post facto the legality of their theft after the Battle of Waterloo, and commandeer that wealth to restore the U.K. sovereignty.

        As I said regarding removal of Muslims. It will have to be incremental and as the result of regular police action. One strike and off to the concentration camp to await deportation. It will have to be done in stages so as to not overly arouse self-hating liberal Whites into sabotaging Operation National Enema. PM Farage could quietly order the conversion of all available cargo ships into mass transporters of Muslims. Get those converted ships going on a regular schedule and have them guarded by British destroyers to prevent any shenanigans from ZOG proxies.

        I’ve been reading a bit about this lately because of some comments here and in other forums. All the fascist dictators of the world didn’t come to power because of Zionism. Some of them were (and are) just charming sociopaths bent on cruelty and oppression for its own sake or for wealth and power. And just because some rich and powerful people are Jewish does not mean there is multi-generational conspiracy to control the world. I think the evidence otherwise is subjective and mainly conjectural derived from paranoia and boredom – or perhaps jealousy.

        • Janos Skorenzy June 28, 2016 at 8:56 pm #

          They arouse as a counter to Zionism or the Zionist money system. So you’re wrong.

          Obviously Whites can do evil on their own of course. It just isn’t as organized and mulit-generational. Really smart evil Whites join with them because they are the best at it.

        • JimInFlorida June 30, 2016 at 8:12 pm #

          Just as the Vatican is a transgenerational project, Talmudic Judaism and its political arm, Zionism, is an even more ancient and malevolent transgenerational project.

          Transgenerational power in the Top 0.1% is carried on for multiple centuries and in a way that is invisible to the average Goyim on the street. The deep psychology is one of supreme entitlement and exceptionalism due to an alleged inheritance from Moses, the Levites, and the powers given to them in the Talmud.

          The Greatest Deception of all time is Judaism’s claim to being Christianity’s elder brother. Thus begat the Jewdeo-Xtian chimera that’s plagued the West over the past 50-60 years. Jesus Christ REJECTED the Pharisees (a.k.a Jews) and they rejected Him. Not just in the Crucifixion but in the vile language used against Jesus in the Talmud. At least the Quran reveres Jesus as a mighty prophet and teacher but stops short of acknowledging that He fulfilled all the prophecies and was, indeed, who He said He was.

          Mayer Amschel Rothschild paved the way for the rise of the modern Jewish billionaires. What Jews in power forbade Goy Whites to do, they did to promote their own; all the way to the top. Anybody with anything to lose suffered the fury of the MSM and the Jewish Lobby for calling them out by name and deed.

          While “conspiracy” suggests a closely coordinated effort, the mutual agreement of “consensus” is more applicable. Such power as they exercise today could have only come about from centuries and centuries of encroachment, promotions of their own while denying outsiders, and, dare we say, “conspiracy.”

      May I? Overshoot,….population, remember? Earth is now overburdened by at least 4 billion, and the tipping point isn’t just sustainability but, rather, loss of civil/social order arising from the pressure. Beyond which all common interests are swallowed by individual desperation. That’s why the elephant and rhino and other endangered species won’t be saved. The only prospect for human survival anywhere is in First World nations where education and literacy levels are high enough to allow reasoned grasp of the situation, such that realization is in place against the suicidal Leftist idealism that population redistribution (open borders) will make possible accommodation of all. Hopefully Brexit signifies a re awakening to the value of national sovereignty and citizen control of national destiny rather than allowing default to however many foreign nationals choose to disregard immigration laws or the supranationaist corporations want to colonize your nation with its agenda.

    Capitalism is dead. It isn’t dead because of Marx, but because of marginal math. Once you burden capitalism with the external costs of manufacturing and consuming (paying to replant removed mountain -tops or treat kids whose asthma comes from diesel fumes), there’s not enough of a profit margin to keep it going. The only thing going in ‘capitalism’ right now are the financial schemes that keep people employed on Wall Street–the practice of leveraging nickels into dimes, something that can’t last much longer and won’t work well after Brexit. The Northern cities of Britain voted against ponzi schemes as the primary industry of their country.

      Actually, “Hospice Man,” I’ve heard it said that Marx explained that process quite accurately. Indeed, some say Marx is the only economist who has explained how, why, and by what process Capitalism falls apart and becomes nothing more than a Ponzi scheme.

    Collapse is apparently the only solution to environmental Armageddon.

    Hierarchy, from the vantage point of History, means that power & privilege will be out of touch with both the people and the natural world – like a Law of Nature this truism, as unpalatable as it is.

    Hence BREXIT, if it implies impending or going collapse, is a good thing – the only, repeat only means of averting the collapse of the natural world as we know it – which would mean the real possibility of extinction for our species.

    Compared to the complete and irreversible nature of extinction, societal collapse is a good thing. It will slow things down, we will see what it means to be human.

    It seems that another reason for the vote on “Brexit” (I hate that word) is the influx of refugees into Britain. I was surprised to find that are apparently a lot of Polacks living there, at least enough that it has engendered a backlash against them. I sympathize with the British desire to limit immigration, and find a parallel with our Mexican immigration problem here. Hillary will double down on immigration, and usher in a new era of hispanification in this country. That, plus the fact that she is bought & paid for by the corporations, is just another reason that there are no good choices for president. It’s like trying to decide whether you’d rather have syphilis or gonorrhea. Pass the penicillin.

      That’s what galls me about the charges of “racism”. Poles are white Europeans. Many British objected to the fact that Poles had more rights to enter Britain and stay than did other members of the Commonwealth.

      • capt spaulding June 27, 2016 at 1:46 pm #

        That, and the fact that many Brits also realize that the economic system works for the elites and not for them, may have caused their discontent with the EU. In most instances, I see a parallel between them and the US. The whole system in both countries is now rigged for the oligarchs. In the meantime, the only thing left for the (formerly) middle class, is to go out and pick shit with the chickens.

        • swmnguy June 27, 2016 at 2:29 pm #

          Well, indeed. Why would the Poles go to England? To find work that pays better than the work in Poland. The problem in England isn’t that there are Poles willing to work as plumbers, roofers and what-have-you. It’s that English employers are willing to hire the Poles at wages the English themselves can’t live on.

          Same deal in America with the Mexicans. All the Mexicans I see are doing the age-old immigrant thing. The young men show up and work their asses off, living 10 to a car, working 32 hours a day, 8 days a week. Then they bring up their women, children and grandparents. Eventually they buy out their bosses, run their own roofing companies, and buy nice houses.

          It can work that way for the locals, too, if they’re willing to live like slaves for a number of years. It’s a lot easier to decide to do that if it’s worse back home.

          Some of the more Libertarian among us would argue that there’s no problem here; the Market is at work. I would say that if there is a problem, it lies with those who are willing to knowingly and intentionally use low-wage labor to undercut the market to fill their own pockets.

          But those exploiting the cheap labor have enough money to buy immunity from the law. So instead we focus on those doing what anyone in his right mind would do; take whatever chance is available to improve one’s lot and one’s kids’ chances.

          There are a few examples of this within my own extended family. The reason given is never about money. It’s always about climate as in: “I couldn’t take another winter in Jersey/New York/the north.”

        Every Brit I know in America will tell you the National Dish of England is Curry. Of their own indigenous cuisine, they’ll often say, “Why do you think the English are so driven to travel the world? It’s not some wanderlust; we’re just looking for something to eat that isn’t grey and boiled.”

        Nah, immigration isn’t the problem. It’s corporate finance capitalism, using debt at interest as money. That’s the problem. As anyone who’s ever played “Monopoly” should be able to comprehend.

        • Janos Skorenzy June 27, 2016 at 3:28 pm #

          And under Capitalism, human being are just more capital, cogs in the machine and thus replaceable. And the English are being replaced by new units. How can you not see that?

          All problems are problems to someone. In other words, your existence pre-exists all other problems. And if your existence is threatened, all other problems are put on hold until survival is secured. It’s not hard – but people are encouraged to miss it and you have.

        Nope – immigration is a dead-on, hard as concrete issue for the British, Europeans, North Americans and indeed anyone interested in have peace prosperity and progress in their nation.

        Yzlamik threat was recently amplified in England by the election, in Londonistan, of an Yzlamik mayor with “radical leanings. That certainly helped push the Leave vote over.

        Have you seen the Third Worlders and Yzlamik invaders in action in EUrope? Thnk London Bombings; and Paris massacres; Madrid Bombings; riots in Sweden; Germany sex assaults and on and on and on…

        Having been to four different E.U. countries in the last five years, I can tell you I could not believe the amount of invading forces. Germany, Italy, France have enormous, non-digestable, immigrant, refugee, and Yzlamik invader, populations waiting to bring their kin folk over from Shitholistan, sub-Saharan Africa, and other zombie paradises.

        Britain doesn’t need them, want them or the disease, misery, poverty, cultural antagonism, and violence they bring with them.\

        We could use a disruptor against the the Globalist system here in the USSA too. Trump would do just that – against the Evil Bastards in charge. And 20 million illegal aliens in the USSA makes a good case for immigration as a central political issue also.

          He might, and that does make him attractive as the anti-Clinton, anti-Globalist. But he might do much more when he gets bored or meets resistance from Congress and the Courts. Or just for the hell of it. The man is used to doing whatever pops into his head and he is used to getting his way. He won’t maneuver the ship of state down the boulevard called “Constitutional Republic.” He will plow it right up the Potomac and dock it at the end of Constitution Avenue. I suppose many people would cheer that. The White House could be a new reality show. Can you imagine the first Cabinet meeting?

    I just got kicked off the site for some reason, and before I logged back in, I heard from a neighbor who told me he’s been “reading up on this
    Brexit thing, and it’s going to cause a financial collapse”. See?

  19. swmnguy June 27, 2016 at 2:16 pm #

    I don’t think the vast sleeping multitudes are waking up yet, but they do seem to be tossing and turning a bit.

    I see a growing sense that something isn’t working right, so we need to put someone new in charge, or we need to adjust some of the settings on the system, or re-arrange some of our groupings, and then our system will work again. Maybe even better than ever before.

    I see that from both main factions of the American Warfare Corporate Party, though they disagree on which settings need to be adjusted. I’m seeing it from both the Brexit and Bremain groups.

    The growing malaise is a good sign, but it’s early yet. Pre-2008, almost nobody could say our system was in trouble without being chased out of polite society. Now, only 8 years later, it’s accepted knowledge that our system has problems; all that’s needed is to agree on what those problems are.

    I predict that within the next few years (1? 3? 5? I don’t know; I’ve had terrible timing on this sort of thing throughout), it will begin to dawn on people that we live on a finite planet, so a system that requires infinite inputs of money, energy, resources and markets is going to run into limits. We don’t have to run out of any of those 4 inputs to collapse; we merely have to become aware of its finiteness.

    Our system has to have those 4 infinite inputs in order to base our economy on debt at interest. There has to be more money in a year so I can pay off the interest on the debt I take on today. If there isn’t going to be more, or I just don’t think I’ll have more in a year, then I won’t take on the debt today. If I don’t take on more debt at interest today, the entire system will collapse.

    We’re getting closer to the point that a critical mass of people lose confidence that there will always be more tomorrow and next year. That’s when the whole thing falls apart. When it starts to fall apart, it will fall apart immediately. A realization starts out subconsciously, then as it becomes more conscious it’s at first denied, then rationalized and minimized, and eventually becomes real with a wet thud.

    The Brexiteers are undone by their own hand because the causes of Britain’s problems are not founded in the E.U. Leaving the E.U. will not fix the basic mathematical flaw in corporate finance capitalism. The Brexiteers fixated on a symptom, and got people to go along with their simplistic and entirely inadequate solution. Now people are going to realize the problem is much more through-going than they had thought even last week, and they’re going to be really angry about having been fools, and having been fooled. Most of them will latch on to the next inadequate and simplistic solution available, but a few will tumble to the totality of the problem. The more the better. Slowly, slowly. But eventually a critical mass will realize a thing which can’t keep working eventually won’t work, and at some point no rationalizations or excuses will hide that fact that the thing doesn’t work.

    That’s when “Interesting” becomes a grim understatement.

        Read Footfall too. Same authors. Earth is invaded by an alien race of little Elephants. As their armada approaches, they are inundated by offers of peace which totally confuse them. How can there be any negotiation since there had been no trial of strength yet? What is there even to talk about? The elephants just end up thinking that the humans are not only weak, but crazy. The attack goes on as planned.

        Some secrets are revealed: the Elephants destroy a column of tanks by releasing little rods from far out. By the time they hit, they have tremendous velocity and force. Some say America has satellite weapons like this too.

          Janos, that reminds me of what I heard about the Mongols, back when they were on the warpath. Rich cities that they attacked attempted to negotiate a peace with gold and treasure. The Mongols apparently didn’t think much of such a tactic. From their point of view, the gold and treasure they were offered was already theirs since they had obviously already won the engagement. In other words, the Mongols went by the rule that losers do not get to negotiate. It made absolutely no sense to them and their response was usually swift and complete – annihilation.

    No doubt the several million who petitioned for a “do over” referendum reside in London. The financial sector doesn’t want to give up privilege, power and especially money.

    I’ve been reading Michael Lewis’s “The Big Short.” At one point in the story, some of the independent money guys find themselves at a conference seated next to a CDO manager. CDOs are collateralized debt obligations that used housing loans and other things as assets. They learn the CDO manager used to work in middle management earning $140,000 a year before he was promoted. But as manager, he managed nothing–and he knew nothing about what he was selling. His job was to find buyers for the CDOs (which were being funneled to his holding company by Lehman Brothers) because they collected fees at both ends of the sale. The manager had already earned $26 million. In order to keep the scheme going, the mortgage companies and everyone else involved, had to keep giving out mortgages to anybody who apparently qualified just by having a pulse.

    This perfectly illustrates how fraudulent is this entire house of cards. The money guys made tens of millions, if not billions, on the backs of the middle and lower classes who thought owning a home was the American dream. No wonder most of us are furious.

    “Britain doesn’t need them, want them or the disease, misery, poverty, cultural antagonism, and violence they bring with them.\” –pequiste

    To the contrary, UK needs immigrants. According to research by UCL, European immigrants who arrived in the UK since 2000 contributed more than £20bn to the economy between 2001 and 2011. Not only that, they also rewarded the country with valuable human capital and vital skills that would have cost the UK £6.8bn in education.

    European immigrants to the UK have paid more in taxes than they received in benefits, helping to relieve the fiscal burden on UK-born workers and contributing to the financing of public services – according to new research by the UCL Centre for Research and Analysis of Migration (CReAM). – See more at: ucl.ac.uk/news/news-articles/1114/051114-economic-impact-EU-immigration#sthash.3WG8eH0a.dpuf

    “The politics of Great Britain are now falling apart landslide-style. ”

    I tend to think that the politics of Great Britain have come home to roost. A state built on feudal exploitation, high seas piracy, indentured labor, colonial parasitism and now, financial swindling, is rotting from within. An ersatz egalitarian global order somehow overlooked the little man looking for his cut. “Please sir, I want some more.” Insolent moppets… the lot of them… they want more, they demanded more, well, there’s nothing more to give, not even a way out. It was a fiction, fools.

    “Of course, that’s what the monkeyshines of banking and finance have done: postponed the inevitable reckoning with the realities of our time: growing resource scarcity, population overshoot, climate change, ecological holocaust, and the diminishing returns of technology.”

    Those that already understand that the passage of linear time does not equate with human progress are rather unsurprised. Eternal and unbridled optimism demands the complete suspension of reality. It requires the bending of perception, the forestalling of the inevitable and mass psychosis. The irony being, that those resisting the zombie like trance are considered the crazy ones.

    Inferno is an upcoming 2016 American mystery thriller film directed by Ron Howard and written by David Koepp, based on 2013 novel of the same name by Dan Brown. The film is the sequel to The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, and stars Tom Hanks.

    Caught in the most mysterious town of Italy – Florence, Professor Langdon, an expert on codes, symbols and history of art, suddenly falls into a whirlpool of events that can lead to the death of all mankind. And to prevent it can only answer to the mystery, once encrypted in Dante’s immortal lines of the epic poem.

    The Mandibles
    A Family, 2029-2047

    by Lionel Shriver

    I heard the author interviewed on NPR, and the novel got a pretty good review in the WSJ a few weeks ago.

    Haven’t read it yet, but it seems to be a dystopian novel taking place in the near future, much like Jim’s ‘World Made by Hand’, this time set in Brooklyn; There’s been economic collapse not due to energy depletion but because of reckless policies of the Fed and Treasury. The results, however, are the same.

    But they are not the same. When natural resources are depleted they are gone… forever. When the Treasury needs more money they just create more [electronic] money… and there are never an end to electrons. Money creation can go on forever… without hyperinflation… as we have seen since we went off the gold standard (August 15, 1971 under President Nixon). Decades of money-making… with no need for Weimar Republic wheelbarrows.

    Enoch Powell was right!

    NIgel Farage and Boris Johnson were right.

    British financial writer Ambrose Evans-Pritchard articulated the Leave argument best, I thought:

    telegraph.co.uk/business/2016/06/12/brexit-vote-is-about-the-supremacy-of-parliament-and-nothing-els…

    And the Evil Bastards in charge, as Laura pointed out above, really don’t give a God damn about the result.

    The Queen still gets a Horse Guards parade, and CHarles is still waiting for his turn.
    They say the British nobility is the tightest and richest club there is.

    Banksters and traders of stock/CDOs/bonds/ currency/ commodities make money when the markets go up and when they go down. It is all about the commission and the vig.

    Industrialists and financiers are busy motoring their yachts around B.V. I. and Monaco.

    Seen properly the Global Plantation is nothing but a very tall, Jenga-like structure. Pulling the “right” stick out causes a collapse. ISIS isn’t it; Brexit is not it; NATO-RUssia frolics are not it (at least I don’t think it is) but something like the fall of the House of Saud, or a rogue nuke from that Juche Party lovin looney in N Korea. Yeah, those are the kind of Black Swans I can believe in.

    Brexit as a bifurcation point in History

    Israel, Turkey strike deal to normalize ties
    edition.cnn.com/2016/06/26/middleeast/israel-turkey-relations/

    The most important thing in this report is a contract for the supply of gas from Israel, because the gas goes from Leviathan field, to which Turkey has a claim by virtue of the presence of it in Eastern Cyprus.

    And now, having signed the contract, Turkey implicitly recognized the right of Israel to Leviathan. Yet it was precisely because of these rights, Turkey sent those ships to the coast of Israel and, more importantly, gave the green light to the Islamist Street in the country, which turned Turkey into a major base of ISIS.

    At some time ISIS oil from Syria made it possible to forget about the gas, but the downed Russian bomber has put a stop to Russian gas and ISIS oil. And you have to be naive person not see the connection of this event with Brexit.

    But this is just ripples on the water, as if we dive deeper into the undercurrents of history, it is noteworthy that in 1917, in one of the previous bifurcation points, England recovered Palestine from the Ottoman Empire, and according to so-called Balfour Declaration promised to facilitate the creation of a “Jewish National Home”.

    In 1930, Hitler took advantage of it to build Nazi Germany and Stalin in 1946 to create the state of Israel, conceived of as a 16th Soviet Republic.

    And the creation of the State of Israel is the event of utmost importance, since it de facto ended the second 2000-year exile of the Jews from the Promised Land, and in this regard the coincidence of Brexit, which is a restoration the historical subjectivity of the Great Britain, with a reconciliation of the neo-Ottoman and Israel suggests a very serious reflection, because it means a further step in this direction.

    Erdogan apologizes to Putin over death of Russian pilot, calls Russia ‘friend & strategic partner’

      Finca,
      There seems to be a basic problem with all your postmortems of world events. You flay, dissect and sift through the organs and minutia, to the point of “WTF?”. At its root is the Bush II Administration approach to information and its meaning. Conclusions first; a furious search for evidence to prove these conclusions “true” comes next. This makes your pronouncements untrustworthy. As a knock-on effect, visitors to this comment section do not trust that you:
      1.) Are who you say you are.
      2.) Live where you say you live.
      3.) Do what you say you do.
      4.) Believe what you say you believe.

      Do you see a kind of “walking dead” problem there? I sure do; and that goes for the most prolific posters on this comment section. Their concrete assertions speak only to vaporous and impractical yearnings in timorous readers; a real attempt to divide, distract and confuse. Untrusted, untrustworthy… in the end, unnecessary.

      …And here we thought that trust was a concept that could be disposed of, blanketed with bullshit, or ‘newspoken’ away. Funny how it’s at the very *root* of everything a society pretends to be. (Hey, Karl Rove, fuck you; I never trusted you either.)

        I am exactly who I say I am: just an unpaid amateur who advocates for his Race, Culture, Civilization, and Nation. It pains me to put Nation last, but in a real sense it is: there is no nation without the previous three. And they tend to exist above, beyond and prior to any individual nation. Of course a great Nation develops the Culture and Civilization, and in some cases is virtually identical to them.

        I believe you are who you say you are and believe the nonsense you write – not that it is all nonsense of course. You say let a thousand flowers bloom and a hundred varieties of peach ripen – but there can only be one breed of humans. You agree with Wesley Clark’s, We decided not to go with ethnic homogenous states in Europe.

    The fact that the world party of Clintonites suffered two serious foreign policy defeats and lost its influence over much of the world, says the fact that the US media, which is almost completely under the control of Clintons, unleashed all its presstitutes on Trump, not shying direct insults and character assassination. Nevertheless, we should not relax. On the contrary, after such large losses should be expected activation of the global party of war that will try to restore the lost status quo.

    What response can it take? Judging by the already exposed arsenal of its actions, it is – the major terrorist attacks, for example, at the Olympics in Brazil, or the next major executions of civilians in major US and European cities, another airliner disaster, plague.

    Arranging something similar to 9/11, which again will be able to put the entire world upside down would be probably too difficult in time remaining for the presidential elections in the USA.

      The very foundation of our lawmaking is in ruins and has been for a few decades now.
      Our institutions are totally corrupted from 35 continuous years of Reaganomics.
      Our laws have actively undermined the White social fabric since 1965.
      The organic United States of America hasn’t existed since 1861. Since 1874, we have been under a Front Organization based in the foreign entity of Washington DC a.k.a. “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC.”
      Therefore, to “obey the law” for its own sake no longer guarantees a healthy body-politic. Again, the “law” often betrays and undermines those it purports to defend.

      When all man-made cosmopolitan institutions are in ruins, and there’s no national consensus, what’s left? Heritage, language, culture handed down from better times, the gods that inspired men to noble things, and borders that define the land of those organic manifestations.

      In modern times, America of the 1950’s would be the first shelter to get behind and regroup from. We may have to reset at 1890-1910 America, which benefited from a strict Christian culture, a series of strict immigration control laws, high tariffs, and a long tradition of self-sufficiency. It’s a long fall to the last stable time in America, which would be the early 1800’s.

      You are in grave intellectual danger if you are only JUST NOW being shaken! You DON’T have the luxury of accumulating knowledge of what’s been going on for decades now! All the signs of political and social rot were there to be seen as far back as 50 years ago. Of economic and academic rot, 35 years ago.

        A lot of people woke up in 2007-2008. Even more people are still asleep. The world we live in has that effect on most people – it is numbing. I don’t blame the people who don’t see – sometimes I’m not sure of what I see. The truth is obscured and the flow of information is tightly controlled. But I notice things now that I didn’t before. Mostly little things but they are manifestation of societal decline and a lack of respect for the rule of law and social conventions.

    The Cult of Globalism is not organic, its rise has been wholly manufactured out of the “Never Again” pseudo religion of the past several decades. It has been helped along by cheap credit, which I have no idea when that scam ends, and since it is now being scammed openly by the debtors I suspect soon enough.

    You can parallel this cult to the Jim Jones cult, once its nest egg had been gone thru and they were down to scratching an existence out of the thin soil it started to lose its appeal. Once past its apogee and just a few people wanted out the cult crashed and burned in a most spectacular way.

    So I predict going forward that the globalists will be giving speeches that are to stir the crazy eyed amongst you to violence, and you know who you are.

      Jim Jones was a prophet of current SJW ethos. Everything had to be reversed. When a woman managed to knock a man out in a boxing match, Jones’ multiracial congregation cheered wildly. And of course Blacks were above Whites – a reversal of the natural order and of the equality the SJWs supposedly believe.

      The Democrat Party in California loved Jones. Loved him and his beliefs. Shades of things to come. Seeds that have ripened unto our doom.

    On the background of noise in Europe quietly passed the SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization) summit in Astana, Kazakhstan. Two new members – India and Pakistan – signed up.

    SCO is a political organization, tied to collective security. With the accession of India and Pakistan, it includes states that are home to almost half of the world’s population (45%).

    When the United States decided to bomb Yugoslavia, Yevgeny Primakov, one of the few Russian politicians playing on the global level, proposed the idea of a triangle Moscow-Beijing-New Delhi, as a remedy against US hegemony. Then it seemed unrealistic because of the contradictions between China and India. And now we see that this idea has been practically implemented.

    The second point is the actual blocking of one of the option of starting a WWIII through a nuclear conflict between India and Pakistan. Two countries still have somewhat tense relationship, but the probability of a hot conflict between them is substantially reduced. Including through mutual guarantees received from the SCO countries (i.e. Russia and China).

    After Astana Vladimir Putin led a large and representative delegation to Beijing, where he met with the Chinese leadership regarding the consolidation of the positions of the two countries after Brexit.

    A main common interest is, firstly, to support the position of Britain in the elimination of US world domination and to prevent war in Europe against Russia, and secondly, mutual guarantees against excessive strengthening of Britain’s position in a post-American world.

    Much of our current dilemma lay in the fact that monopolism dominates both our political & economic spheres. There is only a choice between R or D, politically. In economic terms, multinational conglomerates whom have no political loyalty to any nation have monopolies on most industry, whether it be retail, banking, media, etc. Additionally, under US law, these multinationals also have corporate “personhood.” As people, by definition, they are psychopathic. They feel no real emotions, and are only driven by profit for shareholders of their corporations. These psychopathic “people” corrupt government through PAC money & other legalized forms of bribery & coercion.

    So, you can say that real opportunity can and will not exist because of a corrupt government monopoly being influenced by another group of psychopathic monopolists.

          An analogy is your own voice. It travels through the air but, you can’t see it or catch it with your hand. You perceive it with your ears but, it you were deaf, would you say that sound does not exist? Perhaps sound doesn’t exist for the deaf but, it DOES exist for those who CAN hear.

          The ZOG Matrix DOES EXIST for those who see the signs of its influence and existence. The ZOG Matrix is a manifest reality ONLY for the Top 1% and they don’t have to wonder, like the rest of the masses. We can only hear the sounds and see the effects.

      “We all agreed that America should be operating on 100 percent clean energy by 2050, but then I proposed, in one amendment after another, a series of ways we might actually get there. A carbon tax? Voted down 7-6 (one of the DNC delegates voted with each side). A ban on fracking? Voted down 7-6. An effort to keep fossils in the ground, at least on federal land? Voted down 7-6. A measure to mandate that federal agencies weigh the climate impact of their decisions? Voted down 7-6. Even a plan to keep fossil fuel companies from taking private land by eminent domain, voted down 7-6. (We did, however, reach unanimous consent on more bike paths!)

      In other words, the Clinton campaign is at this point rhetorically committed to taking on our worst problems, but not willing to say how.

          Obama’s Department of Commerce slapped a 266% tariff on steel from Brazil, China, India, Japan, Korea, Russia and the United Kingdom because they have been dumping cold-rolled steel or selling it for less than its fair-market value. Obama is tough when it comes to protecting America overseas and America’s workers at home.

          “Today’s decision comes as welcome news to the steelworkers at American steel mills who produce the cold-rolled flat steel products,” USW International President Leo Gerard said. “It is one step forward in the fight by USW-represented members and the companies to make our nation’s trade policies work better for working Americans.”

          A J.P. Morgan analyst called it a “win” for domestic steel stocks. U.S. Steel stock, which had been trading at a 100-year low in January, rose to $11.35 a share by the end of Wednesday trading. It had traded below $7 per share at times in January. ArcelorMittal stock, which has traded for as little as $2.93 a share over the past year, jumped to $4.78 a share by the end of the trading day.

    In the morning everybody were discussing a letter from Erdogan to Putin with apology for the downed bomber in Syria. As it turned out, Erdogan sent a delegation to Moscow – former senior Turkish secret service and retired military. The negotiators flew on a charter flight, in the morning – to Moscow, in the evening back home again.

    Exactly at the estimated time of envoys return home to the Istanbul Ataturk airport an armed attack happened by professionally trained people. The number of victims is now being specified, first announced the ten dead and forty wounded, now the number of dead went up to thirty, and the wounded – to seventy. (Note that the ratio of the number of dead and wounded at the airport Istanbul – as in the military operations, rather than as a terrorist attack.)

    All local reporters, reporting the bare facts from the scene, without realizing it, gave a clear picture for professionals: at the airport in Istanbul acted well trained army special forces, not terrorist of PKK or ISIS.

    The operation was not prepared in advance, just went for the assault against Erdogan envoys, ran into guards meeting them and a gunfire ensued.

    And there were no suicide vests in the first reports of correspondents and eyewitnesses. News Agencies first half-hour broadcast truthful information from the scene.

    Then they “corrected” reports of the attack groups of well-trained and armed men who escaped from the scene gradually began to change into the “suicide bombers who blew themselves up” in the terminal. And, of course, “all suspected PKK and ISIS.” One would like to ask, when Putin will clean up ISIS who is going to cover for Private Military Companies?

    Tomorrow, of course, all the remains of truthful information will be erased, leaving only the “unidentified suicide bombers” and ISIS.

    I was going to vote for Trump, but now that he’s backpedaled on the Muslim ban and pretty much lifted it, I guess I will have to vote for Hillary. Trump is turning out to be a bigger Waffler than Kerry, and that’s saying something. Next thing you know, he’ll announce he’s building a bridge between Mexico and America versus a wall and a Buy-One-Get-One-Free Special on abortions as long as he is POTUS.

    • Q. Shtik June 29, 2016 at 12:08 am #

      I haven’t seen anything definitive about Trump backpedaling. Please supply a link.

      Regardless, I won’t be voting at all. I am only interested as a sort of anthropologist. 😉

      • wpa_ccc June 29, 2016 at 1:36 am #

        Cold is right. Trump has backpedaled on several issues (ban on Muslms, the Wall with Mexico, homosexuals/transgender, abortion etc.) … Trump is “evolving” on issues he is confronted about and will deny he said what he said. When he cannot deny, he changes from “promise” and says it was only a “suggestion” … Now that Trump is on a leash and reads transcripts using a teleprompter it will be even harder for him to deny his flip-flops.

Check out the picture: the Prom Queen is a tall non-binary. The Prom King is a short Black kid about a foot shorter. Utterly ridiculous and grotesque – just like modern art. So therefore, it’s “perfect” (perfectly imperfect) The complete lack of Beauty means that the goal of Absolute Ugliness is attained.

      God is on his Apology Tour through Hell right now. Apologizing to all the fags and freaks He killed according to Biblical legend. He is especially groveling in penance to the residents of Sodom and Gomorrah that He roasted with fire and brimstone for their open homosexuality.

      The implications of God’s authority being called to question by Satan, because God is letting America get off Scot-free, are grave indeed. The world hasn’t seen the death of a Supreme God since Emperor Constantine fired Jupiter and commissioned the Council of Nicea to beget a new god of the State. No society, kingdom, or nation has survived the death of its gods. I shudder to think at what kind of psychopathic Diety our Top 1% have in store for us.

        Probably Baphomet, the form of Satan that is both masculine and feminine, a gross, earthly abomination that denies the polarity that is natural to all higher organism on earth.

        Baphomet is a perversion of Adam Kadmon, the perfect Heavenly Man who is both Masculine and Feminine without contradiction or conflict. Maslow found that very developed people had qualities of both sexes without any conflict or having to act them out sexually. In contrast, trannies are not a transcendence of gender, but a confusion and falling below it.

    A nice bit of Yzlamik over-exuberance terror theatre this evening in Istanbul.

    The apologists, yes, that includes you wpa-ccc, will again be falling over themselves explaining how the “crescent and scimitar” brand has nothing to do with this latest attack. Nothing in the slightest believe you me.

    I can only hope that the “junior varsity” (thanks Preznit Barry for the cutsey moniker) claims responsibility and that Erdogan’s Ottoman Empire redux takes matters into its own hands. That would be utilizing one of the world’s top 10 military establishments with impressive assets:

    Budget: $18.2 billion
    Active frontline personnel: 410,500
    Tanks: 3,778
    Total aircraft: 1,020
    Submarines: 13

    Let them loose to search and destroy every single ISIS fighter in Syria, Iraq and the Levant. The Turks could use the training and the “blooding.”

    They would be doing their neighbors and the world a favor by exterminating the Yzlamik State. No one else has so much to gain.

    If they could just arrange for a nice brokered, by M.C. John Kerry, meeting with the UN Security COuncil to clear things with Syria, Russia, USSA, Israel, Iraq, Iran and all the other interested players, the party could begin.

    A siege, followed by the complete destruction of Raqqa would be a great start to get the attention of the ISIS forces.

    On second thought that scenario is never going to happen as the Turks don’t know if they want to be European or Yzlamik, both or neither and really only have Armenians, Bulgarians, Greeks and Kurds as existential enemies. Besides there is all of that Yzlamik State petroleum to trade for.

    Such a racket.

    Pequiste, by saying ISIL (DAESH) is part of Islam you are agreeing with them and help ISIL (DAESH) in its propaganda efforts.

    Ted Cruz is doing the same by going after our USA Muslim congresmen, trying to link them to violent extremists.

    Those who oppose DAESH distinguish between Muslims and false Muslims like DAESH. We need the support of moderate Muslims.

    Your rabid anti-Muslim comments only help DAESH. Your refusal to separate 1.6 Billion peaceful Muslims from a small number of violent extremists puts you on the side of the extremists and their false “caliphate”.

    Islam is a religion of peace. We need to make friends with moderate Muslims and respect our Muslim congressmen.

      (INFORMATION TAKEN FROM WIKIPEDIA FOR EXPEDIENCY SAKE)

      Work of a master warlord to get rid of the local opposition.

      Any decent history, in a real book, will inform you how Yzlam was spread. No evangelists visiting the Seven CHurches of Asia Minor, no Apostles being crucified; no enlightened master sitting under tree, no “divine” blue being recounting the manfestation of the Godhead.

      How about the difference between Shiites and Sunnis? I challenge you wpa-ccc, to do just a little checking on your own, be a real person, show some grit in the face of REALITY and see what happened to the succession of the Caliphs begining right after Mohammad’s, hand picked successor Abu Bakr died. To help you I can provide some names you are probably not familiar with:
      Omar, Uthman and Ali.

      Makes for quite the tale of intrigue, power politics and assassination eh? Rivals the best of the debauched Roman Empire, The Roman CHurch or the frolics of Richard the Third for that matter. That’s because what it was is “business as usual” behind the veil of “religion”.

      The Yzlamik system was spread by the scimitar and conquest.

      No Mother Teresas, Albert Schweitzers, or William Booths opening hospitals, feeding the hungry and evangelizing. Instead lots and lots of murder and mayhem.

      And today the “religion” that engages in human slavery, suppresses women’s rights, funds international terrorism, murders Gays for sport, performs genital mutilation on girls, hates Jews, CHristians, Buddhists, and Hindus, is busy having jihad around the world and against itself.

      And at airports?
      No passing out tracts at the airport; or jumping up and down singing Hare Krishna at the airport; no Reading Room at the airport; just bombings and murder and mayhem at the airport. All due to a particular belief system that has world conquest and submission of the kaffir and creation of the global Caliphate as its mission.

      When ever anyone is compelled to say the word “moderate” Muslim, the entire “logic” supporting the argument that there is any difference for the believers has evaporated. The difference between a “moderate” Muslim and a “radical” Muslim is a change of clothes.

      Ramadan mubarak.

        All of what you offer depends on the reader having a long historical horizon in his/her mind. Otherwise, it’s all discarded as in the past and irrelevant. The White House and MSM have ushered in a More Sensitive Understanding of Islam and, by fiat, declared it to be the Religion of Peace. BTW, Islam and Judaism are equally vile religious cousins. Judaism hires proxies whereas Islam does its own dirty work. Judaism undermines Christianity from within and Islam attacks it from without.

        wpa is a creature of the Now pop culture that worships the demigod, “DIVERSITY.” Diversity shares wpa with two other demons. Diversity’s promiscuous cousin, “INCLUSIVENESS,” and, a student imp of the blind god, Samael. The imp is charged with giving wpa her(?) blindness to Islam’s madness.

          Dönmeh Jews hijacked Islam in the early 17th century and began using Islam as a battering ram against Europe as punishment for not SUBMITTING to Jewish elites. The Saudi “royal” family are Dönmeh Jews acting as Muslims. Turkey is run by them as well.

          Iran is Persian and they vigorously call out the ruse. The Iranians know full well what the backstory is on Wahhabism and its related factions. Thus, the Western MSM is constantly demonizing Iran and is silent on Saudi-sponsored terrorism and Turkey’s DIRECT support of ISIL.

    Last week I called Brexit a non-event and it appears I was right. Britain won’t be exiting the E.U. anytime soon.

    If and when the U.K. government invokes Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty of 2007, which grants member states the right to leave, there will be at least two years of negotiations about the terms of Britain’s future relationship with Europe.

    And that invocation of Article 50 is likely to be delayed for quite a while.

    Erdogan’s Ten Plagues of Egypt

    Erdogan is experiencing Ten Plagues of Egypt, and Putin was not the one who organized them, but the “Western friends” of Erdogan, who had drawn him into conflict with Russia.

    Plagues fell like from a horn of plenty – the recognition of the Armenian Genocide in the German parliament, and the actual failure on payment of compensation for the cessation of refugee transit to Europe, and the liberation of new territories from ISIS in Syria and Iraq, and the insults by German journalists, and shameful litigation with them, and even more shameful defeat in court, and the civil war with Kurds.

    Suddenly someone “remembered” about the absence of Erdogan higher education diploma.

    Pathetic attempt to beg forgiveness from Putin was made by Erdogan too late. Will goodhearted Putin, once again save the Turkish Pharaoh ass is not clear.

    “Pharaoh” apology is not convincing enough. To be the more convincing it is necessary either to resume the building of the South Stream, or send the head of A.Celik in a bag to Kremlin (conventionally, a life sentence for war crimes will be sufficient), or expel the NATO bases from its territory, or block NATO ships from passing Bosporus or something like that.

    Russia does not want Sunni pipelines from Qatar to Mediterranean through Syria. Russia does not need Shiite pipelines from Iran to Mediterranean through Syria.

    Russia needs that in the south of Syria – at least in the Golan were Jews who would supply Russian Gazprom gas from Jewish Leviathan field near Cyprus.

    Russia needs Russian ships and planes in the Syrian West – Latakia, which would protect the Israeli gas fields from everyone, as Israel has already sold the gas to Gazprom but the gas is considered to be Jewish, and since Israel is in quarrel with everybody, then they may sell it only through Russian Gazprom.

    Russia needs that Erdogan realized that the Jewish gas will get to him only through Gazprom, that the Syrian gas he could get only through Gazprom and that Azerbaijan gas is already being sold exclusively through Gazprom, and in the near future Qatari gas will be sold only through Gazprom, but the tankers of liquefied gas from Qatar and America will never come to him (because they’re already bought by Chinese) and made the right conclusions.

    And when he’ll come to the right conclusions, then perhaps he would find the strength to rein in wild Kurds and Persians, who is not ready to trade with the world – through Gazprom.

    In this sense, I believe that the Jews are hundred times better to deal with than all Turks, Arabs and Persians combined, and that is why Israel in the next 50 years will be Russian main outpost in the region, rather than – anyone’s else.

    It all becomes logical if we take on faith the thesis regarding the coup d’état by Hillary Clinton.

    Since then, from the demands for Obama to start World War III in Syria Clintonites have switched to direct provocations starting from collision course of American ships in the Mediterranean, designed to clash with Russian warships to the attacks in the Turkish airport as a punishment for a letter Erdogan wrote to Putin to apologize for downed Su-24 bomber.

    Last night I for two hours listened as CNN raved in hysteria about the terrorist attack at the Istanbul airport committed by ISIS militants and Trump and Giuliani obviously not for nothing calling Hillary the ISIS Supreme Commander.

    And then Russian intelligence reported that Hillary gave a command to the resumption of war in Ukraine, and I would not be surprised if it turns out that in Syria she has commanded something nasty like a no-fly zone.

    And Putin has decided that, in this situation double wars in Ukraine and Syria are more than enough, and to have a fight with Turkey is one thing too many.

    Especially that Erdogan, visibly frightened by Brexit, recalled the experience of two world wars and came to the conclusion that when Britain quarrels with continental Europe (Germany) and begins to be friends with Russia, the right place to be is on the side of the Entente cordiale (Allies), to which US inevitably will join up, after coronation of Hillary to the electric throne.

    And I heard the unconfirmed rumor regarding telephone conversation of Hillary Clinton with Erdogan, intercepted by Ed Snowden in which she in very threatening tones blames him for treason to the common cause.

    Response to May’s “Eyesore of the Month”……San Francisco’s newly expanded Museum of Modern Art designed by Snohetta:

    I visited SF MOMA yesterday. The GOOD: The artwork contained in the post-1960 German exhibit. The Calder mobile exhibit. The living wall (beautiful display of ferns/plants behind the fifth floor Calder exhibit.)

    The BAD: Not only can you see minimalist art….the café offers minimalist food, such as a “lettuce sandwich” and catsup-fried rice. (Someone in SF needs to run to the grocery store.)

    The UGLY: Kunstler called out the museum’s exterior crumpled fiberglass cladding. Up close it is dingy–I could actually see whole footprints low on the wall on one of the outside balconies. I suggest they power wash the whole building twice a year. Call the fun police.

    The Snohetta expansion makes no reference to the original building–an underwhelming edifice in its own right. They closed the whole museum down for years while they built the expansion and “lent” some of the sculptures around town. A series of really bad sculptures were placed on a green space near the Golden Gate Bridge. Residents and tourists alike asked that they remove this “art” because it was ruining the view of the lovely bridge.

    Creation of nuclear weapons has resulted in the seizure of power in the US by Nazi sects, which in 1941 tried to prevent the US entry into the war on the side of Great Britain and the Soviet Union. They even demanded entry into the war on the side of Nazi Germany and only attack of the Imperial Japan at Pearl Harbor on December 9, 1941 helped President Roosevelt to achieve the declaration of war with Germany.

    The Jewish scientists, who had fled to the United States from the horrors of Hitler’s Germany and out of fear triggered the creation of the atomic bomb in the United States, were mostly sympathetic to the Soviet Union – a country that made a decisive contribution to the defeat of the Nazi. But after the Truman coup, they suddenly found themselves in an anti-Semitic country in which Senator McCarthy in his crusade against communism used anti-Semitic rhetoric, little different from one of Goebbels.

    The first blow of Senator McCarthy’s House on Un-American Activities Committee was directed at Roosevelt State Department, where worked a lot of Jews, Soviet sympathizers.

    And this attack made apparent that strange feature of American politics, which still confuses many people: Senator McCarthy, attacking Roosevelt State Department, attacked Secretary of State Dean Acheson and Marshall, who were appointed by Truman and made an outstanding contribution to the anti-Soviet Europe and NATO, as well as now the Republicans are attacking Hillary Clinton NOT for her ties with Saudi Arabia and Germany, and through them with ISIS, but for the fact that she helped Russia in buying American uranium mining and processing company.

    The key to US foreign policy is that the appointed by Roosevelt Secretaries of State Stettinius and Hull not in any way were communists or socialists in the European sense of the word, but they were diplomats in the true sense of the word, appointed to diplomatic posts in the period when the Soviet Union was closer ally to US than the United Kingdom. And after Truman and McCarthy cleared the State Department of employees hired by them this department has become what later became the kingdom of Hillary Clinton, whose staff welcomed her return to power (as a result of covert coup) with open letter to President Obama in which they demand to start war in Syria (potential World War III) in addition to the three or four wars that the United States is already engaged in thanks to the efforts of this agency.

    But the US military and the Pentagon were able to assert their independence from the Commission on Un-American Activities during the so-called hearings in the US Congress, Army vs McCarthy hearings, which resulted in Senator McCarthy and pro-Nazi revolt of Harriman and Thyssen in USA to experience the action of the Newton’s third law.

    Senator McCarthy accused the US military of being sympathetic to communism, against the backdrop of the war in Korea, where Stalin, after avoiding military confrontation with the United States in Berlin and Greece decided to give a battle based on the newly created jet aircraft and just created the Soviet atomic bomb. The main figure in the foreground of these hearings, which received the most media as an opponent of Senator McCarthy became Advisor to the Minister of Defense Joseph Welsh, but in fact it would be better to call these hearings, “Senator McCarthy against General Bradley”.

    A major role in the overthrow of McCarthy was played by the most honored, senior and talented general of the US Army Omar Bradley, who during the Second World War has repeatedly saved the American army from destruction as a result of actions of braggart Patton in North Africa and Ardennes, and saved the world from nuclear war, after the war, which wanted to arrange in Korea and China braggart MacArthur, ditching God knows how many American lives in the Philippines and Okinawa.

    Memory of General Bradley on how the Red Army early offensive in Pomerania has saved the US Army at the Ardennes from complete defeat has played no small role in this.

    And the tradition of General Bradley is strong in the US Army even now and they are making the Pentagon and the military-industrial complex more peaceful and sensible force in American politics than the US diplomatic agency, and that the Pentagon is now in spite of everything, more or less successfully resists the Wargasm of former Secretary of State.

      Finca, your re-writing of history goes a bit too far: Imperial Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, not December 9.

      Also, there were many non-Jewish scientists working on the Manhattan Project, which built the first A-bomb.

      • FincaInTheMountains June 29, 2016 at 8:53 pm #

        Roosevelt got his Declaration of War on December 8, 1941 at at 4:10 p.m, which makes it December 9, 1941, 12:10 a.m. Moscow time.

        Also, there were many non-Jewish scientists working on the Manhattan Project, which built the first A-bomb

        Yes, but I am talking principle scientists.

        • sprawlcapital June 29, 2016 at 10:11 pm #

          OK, in reading your post again I note that you said Jewish scientists “triggered” the start of the bomb project. There are strong arguments supporting this. Szilard persuaded Einstein to sign the letter to Roosevelt that was a deciding factor in starting the Manhattan project. Both of these scientists were of course Jewish.

          But Ernest O. Lawrence, the Nobel Prize winner and inventor of the cyclotron was definitely a principle scientist. He was a Protestant, born in the American Midwest. To name just one.

      • JimInFlorida June 29, 2016 at 10:24 pm #

        As I recall, there was a little known story of the Nazi German atomic bomb program which was almost ready to go in 1944. The Germans had all the knowledge to build a proper fission bomb but, they were having trouble enriching it sufficiently and make it small enough to be carried on a long range bomber. The V2 rocket was the intended carrier but, things were happening too fast and they needed the bomb ASAP.

        The Germans decided to put the large fission bomb on a cargo ship. The plan was to fly a neutral flag, sail into New York harbor under poor weather to conceal it, and detonate it there. Obviously, time ran out and it didn’t happen.

    “But at the Clinton White House, I soon recognized a disturbing and pervasive crisis of character. Boots on the ground, the men and women at the lowest part of the totem pole—those who faced death head-on—were measured by the highest of ethical requirements. Those at the very pinnacles of power held themselves to the very lowest standards—or to none whatsoever. I saw how the Clinton Machine’s appalling leadership style endangered law enforcement officers, the military, and the American people in general. And with Hillary Clinton’s latest rise, I realize that her own leadership style—volcanic, impulsive, enabled by sycophants, and disdainful of the rules set for everyone else—hasn’t changed a bit.”

    “Crisis of Character”, Byrne

    “THE higher immorality can neither be narrowed to the political sphere nor
    understood as primarily a matter of corrupt men in fundamentally sound
    institutions. Political corruption is one aspect of a more general
    immorality; the level of moral sensibility that now prevails is not merely a
    matter of corrupt men. 1 The higher immorality is a systematic feature of
    the American elite; its general acceptance is an essential feature of the
    mass society.”

      Doesn’t Byrne understand that you have to be a total megalomaniacal sociopath (Clinton, Gore) or complete fool (G. Dumbya Bush) to pursue the office of president? People are actually surprised by this? You’d think a secret service officer would have learned the basic tenets of stoicism.

    I cannot keep up with all that has been written about the Brexit. Not one in a hundred foresaw the referendum outcome and that is why TPTB are in a state of shock.

    Whoever heads up the NYT editorial staff I’d venture called an all hands meeting for 4 am last Friday as the vote counts were showing the impossible was indeed happening. I have never seen such apoplexy. Read the op ed pieces today by Cohen and Bruni as perfect examples. They are friggin’ beside themselves. The world is crashing down on their liberal heads. The old voters outside London are stupid. Boris Johnson is an idiot.

    “Xenophobia” will be voted the 2016 “word of the year.”

    • BackRowHeckler June 30, 2016 at 7:14 am #

      Q, just to add to your above comment, I’ve had time at work to read thru editorial pages of a bunch of newspapers the past week or so, NYT, WSJ, FT of London, most of the Trib publications, Washington Post, a few more, the way it stacks up: anti Trump editorials 50, editorials with at least something good to say about Trump: 0.

      What I’ve learned in the editorials is the people who back Trump in the US are the same type who voted for Brexit in GB: ignorant, backward looking, racist, old, white troglodytes who don’t know what’s good for them, and the sooner they die off the better.

      That about sums it up.

      This is where we stand now. To find a similar situation you have to go all the way back to Turgenev and his novel ‘Father and Sons’ in the 1860s. Its fascinating reading these 19th century Russian authors — Tolstoy, Anton Chekov, Turgenev, Dostoyevski — with knowledge of the Russian bloodbath which loomed right around the corner. I wonder if a similar fate awaits us, and ours?

    United Kingdom is a country in which there is no Constitution, the law is precedential, pirates are included in the pantheon of national heroes, and the tradition is valued above the law.

    It is a country that has captured the most valuable of its colonies (that’s you, my friends) using private company, that conducted wars for the right to sell drugs in other countries, that is ranked first in the world ranking of soft power, while her competitors spend unimaginable sums of money on the production of fundamentally unusable weaponry.

    It is a country that selects foreigners to its armed forces with competition of 140 people to one opening, and does not consider them mercenaries.

    Brexit opened before the British almost unlimited possibilities. Every few hours there are new and new scenarios of possible developments.

    Britain may ignore their own referendum. Britain may hold a second referendum. Britain may withdraw from the EU and trigger a chain reaction of its disintegration. Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka, said in January that if Brexit referendum succeeds, in three years similar referendum will be held in the Czech Republic, after which it will return to the Russian sphere of influence.

    If the British wish to revive the Eastern bloc and resume Cold War with the United States, they could do it.

    I wouldn’t even start pretending that I know how Brits will proceed from here. But judging by non-stop hysteria in Clinton-controlled MSM, the War Party is under a huge duress and I am content with it for now.

    • Dumbedup June 30, 2016 at 7:51 pm #

      “If the British wish to revive the Eastern bloc and resume Cold War with the United States, they could do it.”

      I doubt that was their intent. It might trigger it but no more than American intervention and meddling in the ME caused the dislocation of millions of Muslims and their eventual migration to Europe.

      Brexit passed to stop that migration to Great Britain, but also to avoid the looming bailout of Deutche Bank.

    Subject: Striving Millennials

    This week I went to my last deacon meeting. Finished my 3-year stint on the board of deacons at my Presbyterian church. It is the role of a deacon to provide support and relieve suffering in the community. Visits to shut-ins, dinners to those recovering from surgery, socials for seniors, respite care, funeral luncheons, etc.

    Another person “graduating” was a teen whom in three years of monthly meetings I had never seen at all. I think he was a deacon because he wanted to have it on his college resume.

    It must have worked because he was accepted to lots of prestigious universities–Georgetown, Berkeley, UCLA. I know this because I for the past year I’ve overheard his mother bragging to anyone who will listen about his academic accomplishments.

    Ahh, millennials. Any other observations on this subject in CFN community?

        America hasn’t seen True Christianity in over a century.

        REAL Christianity is austere, MILITANT, intolerant of libertine wickedness, defends the Laborer, honors legitimate marriage, and forbids gleaning of the fields i.e. something must always be left over for the poor to glean. REAL Christianity was White America’s immune system, so long ago.

        For the past 50 years, we’ve had this Cotton Candy-ass Jewdeo-Xtianity that needs the rod of God laid across its soft flabby backside. It desperately needs a massive testosterone injection and a good old-fashion Crusade. Not even a handful of Churches in ZOG Amerika are fit to be called Christian, when compared to the rugged Men of God who used to lead and protect it long ago.

            Obviously, you have nothing to offer. Why are you dragging the Seminole tribe into this? The Seminoles have not undermined the moral atmosphere. The Seminoles have zero control over the MSM. Furthermore, the Seminoles have not flaunted disgraceful behavior; nor demand that it be accepted on their terms. The Seminoles have their ancient customs and none of it includes the dysfunctions of the LGBT rabble.

            Whores are the least problem we are facing as a social order. It is not “freedom” when a bestial population has no goal than to constantly search for new lows in cultural expression. It is not “freedom” to be well-adjusted to such a shit hole as America has become. Human trash will always be with us but, good societies keep a heavy hand over them.

            Without cheap food and endless rubbish entertainment, we would be horrified at the disgusting nation we’ve become. And don’t tell me to move somewhere else because the ZOG Amerikan cancer is all over the world. The roots of the cancer are deeper in some places than others.

      Enough dancing around the total lunacy or religion. It’s absolutely insane. The cranks here complain every week about the imbeciles believing in the financial system, yet most probably adhere in certain ways to insane abrahamic religions.

      It is very difficult for me to understand why people dedicate their lives and time to this utter sh*t. Many humans, in 2016, really believe that some vindictive omniscient and omnipotent apex predator has us in a giant ant farm, where its one true goal (that it must already know the answer to) is to see if we’ll worship it? And they worship it! That’s the scary part, why not look at a way to escape its obviously evil clutches? It’s a sickness. All abrahamic religions are a brain infection. Fix yourself ASAP.

    The potential strike force that could have saved American lives at Benghazi, changed in and out of uniform four times as the Obama administration dithered as to whether the uniform would offend Libyans.

    Q and Backrow Heckler, hard to know where to lay your hands with this Brexit stuff other than to say hurray to the Brits that had the cojones to tell the fucks-in-charge where to get off.

    Apparently, judging by all the apoplectic commentary from all the usual sources, it’s beyond the pale for ordinary people to vote with their own interests in mind. No, you see, self-interest is only for the “sophisticate” class, those at the top.

    BRH, no idea what’s around the corner but I’ll say this, if the fuckwads at the top of the pyramid don’t quit with the insults, and you listed a bunch of them, the end result could be nasty. People get enough. Personally, I’ve had a bellyfull of listening to their shit. I’m utterly sick of it. Xenophobe, Islamophobe, homophobe, this phobe, that phobe, and oh yeah, racist, fascist this “ist” and that “ist”. And ignorant and uneducated, and stupid and low information. As long as the targets are white and working class, insults are fair ball.

    I hope that the 40% of the Brit population who didn’t have the moxie to vote with upraised finger or the wit to see where they were being led find both the moxie and wit. But it’s heartening to see that more than 50% had a lot of both. Restores my faith in people or, at least, some people.

    Have to write off the top 10% of the income distribution though as they got a huge benefit from the current trends towards both globalization and so-called Europeanization, both of which involved boosting the wealth and income of that mall slice of the population at the expense of the others.

    Well, what can we say about things in the US? Is Trump good for his word? Or will he lead people down the garden path and fuck them right in the ear? Happy to see though that huge numbers of Republican voters are seeing the Paul Ryans of the world and their “principled conservatism” for what they are, low down shills for money. A round of applause for Bernie voters for seeing Shillary as bought and paid for.

    No wonder the Kochs had such broad, self confident grins for such a long time. People were buying into their con. I doubt they’re grinning much now though. People are clue-ing in.

    There’s a lot of theater going on for public consumption like Britain being excluded from that EU meeting.

    Don’t be fooled, behind closed doors discussions are afoot to dislodge the results of the referendum. And some of the preparatory ground work, like that petition for a do-over vote, is happening right in the open.

    You cannot have the ignorant masses, who are NOT entitled to self-interest owing to their low societal position not to mention their intellectual and educational deficits, determining the course of events. You just cannot. Hence all the derogation of the “Leave” voter. It serves as justification for overturning democratic results.

    No, the bottom 90% should stick to doing what their betters tell them, like serving in the armed forces and raising their kids to be cannon-fodder and cheap labor, which, BTW, is what open borders are all about. Get impoverished Europeans and others to move to the UK to serve as the under-paid underclass the same as Mexicans in the US.

    Anyway, a small sigh of relief that at last at least some of the people are waking up. A long way to go though. Not time yet for victory parades.

    It becomes clear that Roosevelt initiated the development of the Yalta world while already aware of the approximate timing of the successful completion of Manhattan project and despite that was still planning to defeat Imperial Japan with the help of the Soviet Union, and Stalin agreed with his plan being well informed about the progress of Manhattan project via MAUD Committee and Cambridge Five.

    So, it would not be too fantastic assumption that the Yalta agreements likely concluded by both sides in full knowledge of the atomic bomb since Roosevelt had much more realistic assessment of possibilities of the American army in comparison with the Soviet. And not the atomic bomb, but the influence of the NSDAP and Bormann money forced Truman to go for the coup and the revision of the Yalta agreements in Potsdam.

    Of course, Stalin during the first 5 years after the Victory avoided direct military confrontation with the US Army, but, having acquired the atomic bomb, he immediately went on to direct military confrontation and it very quickly became clear in the skies of Korea, that the United States do not have means to deliver the bomb to the target as transonic MiG -15 and MiG-17 could easily climb to a higher altitude and from there attack the American bombers at supersonic speeds, while American Sabres suffering from transonic flutter could do nothing about it.

    And when thanks to the achievements of Academician Struminsky, proving once again that there is nothing more practical than a good theory, Soviet MIGs gained air superiority, General MacArthur, commander of the so-called United Nations forces in Korea, wrote his famous “Memorandum on Ending the Korean War”, in which substantiated the need for the use of nuclear weapons in view of the superiority of the enemy in the air and artillery, and sent it to various statesmen of the West bypassing President Truman, and that was the reason for his resignation.

    But this was not the end, because after April 12, 1951, when the Soviet MiG-15 shot down 12 bombers B-29 and 5 fighter cover for F-84 and F-86, losing just eight of their own fighters, it became clear that the war in Korea was lost and it made commander of the joint chiefs of Staff General Omar Bradley on May 15, 1951 in response to the MacArthur proposals to say his famous phrase: “The wrong war, at the wrong place, at the wrong time, and with the wrong enemy “.

    And on 30 October 1951 21 Boeing-29 “Superfortress” accompanied by nearly 200 fighter planes of various types have been attacked by 44 MiG-15 that shot down twelve-29 and four F-84, losing only one MiG-15, and all other Boeing were severely damaged and lost a few members of the crew. On this day, not only Korean, but also the Cold War, as often happens with the war turned against those who started it, and that day became “Black Tuesday by US Air Force” and it became clear that the US has no means of delivering nuclear bombs to their targets.

    But Stalin realized that this advantage of the USSR will not last very long, and began to prepare the invasion of the United States.

    Formation of Chukotka 14th invading army was entrusted to one of the best Soviet military chief General Oleshev who on August 9, 1945, with the battle forced the Greater Hinggan, in two weeks advanced 950 kilometers and took one of the Chinese cities, in the ’40s transformed into a Japanese military base and the largest center for the aircraft industry.

    After the war, he was entrusted with the organization of the defense of Chukotka, because then there is little doubt of the inevitability of the American invasion to the Far East, especially after the bombing by American aircraft of Russian airfields. But after the spring of 1951 the superiority of the Soviet Air Force has been proven in the battle over the skies of Korea, the 14th Army began to prepare for the invasion of Alaska, and specially imparted engineering units converted to an air base airfields for the Tu-4, combat range of which was only 5100 km.

    Under the cover of MiG-15-bis and tactical aviation the 14-th army of General Oleshev had a week to boost the Bering Strait, and in one and a half month to go to Seattle and capture the Boeing factories…

    Malthus and WPA ..

    To respond to earlier questions concerning a Ms Winfrey of new Haven CT being torn apart by dogs, and then dying …

    The dogs were American Bulldog Mix (mixed with what I don’t know, probably Pit Bulls)

    The owner of the dogs is named Dr. Hamilton Hicks, a Yale professor of Psychiatric Medicine. He is indeed a ‘Brotha’, which I suspected when the media didn’t run a photo of him. If he was white it would have been front page news, specially since Ms Winfrey, was black. That’s how it works in the US media, 2016.

    That’s not the end of the story. Professor Hicks will not be prosecuted for his dogs killing that woman, but he was bit as well in the attack, and at the emergency room staff found 2 pockets full of crack cocaine … a distinguished Yale professor of psychiatric medicine with 2 pocketfuls of crack cocaine. That’s what he is being arrested for.

    CFNers, don’t send your kids to Yale, save $70,000 per year. Its a waste of money. Yale has been surrounded by the Ghetto for decades, now it is part of the Ghetto. Send them instead to South Bronx Community College; its free, and they will get the same ‘inner city’ experience.

    Attorney General Loretta Lynch, on whose desk in the near future will come the results of the FBI investigation of the activities of Hillary Clinton and who on the basis of these results will make a decision about the charges against her and withdrawal from the election, met at the airport with Bill Clinton.

    As a result, Loretta Lynch was forced to speak on television, explaining that she “accidentally” met Bill Clinton at the airport, and now it turns out that she arrived at the airport in a private jet and Bill Clinton was let in onto the aircraft, where they for more than half an hour were sitting and talking, and all this happened on the day of publication of the results of the Congress investigation committee of incident in Benghazi.

    I’m convinced since you received the inheritance from your brother, you’ve diversified your investment portfolio to include some Short betting.

    The DOW may not have returned to 18,000, but you and I know it will within the next couple of months, if not sooner. A soaring DOW, or any equity index, is not an indication of economic health. In fact, imo, the inverse is true. The higher the DOW, these days at least, the more unhealthy the economy is.

            As it turns out the South Jersey town where this brownie incident occurred is Collingswood, NJ, the town in which I grew up, went to high school, and spent the first 20 some years of my life. Also the hometown of Eugene Orowitz, aka Michael Landon.

            The town was and is to this very day “dry.” For decades both before and after my HS graduation in 1958 the town had nary one person of color living within its borders nor in its school system. At some point in time (unknown to me since I moved away) this began to change. In recent years, I am told, gays discovered this charming little town and worked their magic on it… shops, restaurants, arts… and now it is a highly desirable and expensive place to live.

            If you belong to Classmates (I don’t) check the CHS yearbooks on either side of the year 1958 and I’ll bet you won’t see a brown face for 50 years. It is a highly unusual situation since it shares a border with Camden to its west.

            Those White kids should be told that racism is the natural and rational response to peoples who are incompatible or hostile to the culture’s norms, habits, and customs. Racism is healthy because it is an Immune System reaction to what doesn’t belong.

            Even a liberal society must have hard boundaries. People can interact in business, trade, or mutual purpose. Mudsharking is the one sin that no nation has ever recovered from. Using mass media and Academia to demonize Whites, not just for resisting but for existing, will naturally arouse the correct and healthy reaction.

            Whites instinctively know the Truth. Just articulating it arouses ancient memories and imparts spiritual strength. There is a reason why English translations of Hitler’s speeches are NEVER NEVER NEVER allowed on MSM or in the skools.

      While Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to remain in the EU, England voted for independence. These people, with their unique history, language and culture, want to write their own laws and rule themselves.

      The English wish to remain who they are, and they do not want their country to become, in Theodore Roosevelt’s phrase, “a polyglot boarding house” for the world.

      From patriots of all nations, congratulations are in order.

      It will all begin to unravel now, over there, and soon over here.

      Across Europe, tribalism, of all strains, is resurgent. Not only does the EU appear to be breaking up, countries appear about to break up.

        No they voted for fully funding their NHS based on the lies of Boris and lying Leave campaign.

        That vote is not legally binding, which is why no move has been made to invoke Article 50, a pre-requisite to leaving… and that after years of negotiations that may never happen.

    According to Byrne’s book “Crisis of Character”, when Bill Clinton’s staff first moved into the White House the gay faction literally plastered pink gay rights stickers all over the walls and antique furniture. The White House cleaning staff was all pissed off because they had to gingerly remove the stickers without damaging the furniture. Byrne says that the Clintons had a coterie of megalomaniac egotistical followers who believed that they could do whatever they wanted and kept asserting: “We’re in charge now.”

    It’s strange that the US Federal Government imposes a very onerous security clearance process on most federal government employees, so onerous in fact that a bloke with marital issues may have to prostrate himself before an obese female marriage counselor to talk about his relationship with his mother just to keep his security clearance, and, hence, his job. Meanwhile, the political leaders such as the Clintons largely run amok. Bizarre….

    “But at the Clinton White House, I soon recognized a disturbing and pervasive crisis of character. Boots on the ground, the men and women at the lowest part of the totem pole—those who faced death head-on—were measured by the highest of ethical requirements. Those at the very pinnacles of power held themselves to the very lowest standards—or to none whatsoever. I saw how the Clinton Machine’s appalling leadership style endangered law enforcement officers, the military, and the American people in general. And with Hillary Clinton’s latest rise, I realize that her own leadership style—volcanic, impulsive, enabled by sycophants, and disdainful of the rules set for everyone else—hasn’t changed a bit.”

    It is in Clinton’s camp where Brexit has caused the most shock and very unpleasant surprise. After all, it is a blow against Bastinda the Great and Terrible.

    Not even having time to fully recover from the news and appreciate all consequences, the Democrats are talking about unity between Clinton and Sanders, and even rewriting of the presidential program of the Democratic party specifically tailored for him.

    If only he agreed at least on a tandem Clinton – Sanders with Bernie as a Vice President. But there are nuances. Sanders is a protégé of London (the City), as actually is Trump (through Bush and British Admiralty).

    And in the long run Bernie’s program and aspirations, in principle, can not be reconciled with the program and the aspirations of Clinton, as well as standing behind her Rockefellers.

    On the part of Clinton’s proposal to join ranks in the “fight against Trump” is a kind of cautious waving of a white flag. It is not an admission of defeat yet, but willingness to compromise. However, this compromise is only profitable to Clinton and Rockies. Brits do not show much interest in such compromises. For them, the worse the situation in the United States, the better.

    In general, London has always operated in the United States very cautiously, entering into coalitions and supporting candidates from the US elite – given very apprehensive attitude toward the British Crown on the part of American elites and people.

    But this time, the London is going for broke in the US presidential election, using British traditional political technology of playing the leftist card, socialist and protest movement, as necessary for maximum attenuation of geopolitical competitor.

    British are very proficient in mobilizing young people and all sorts of subcultures and minorities. At the same time except for Sanders, the British elite, but not the City of London, Admiralty made a bet on a descendant of Scottish immigrants, Trump, originally aiming him against the Rockies candidate Clinton.

How much you want to bet if they did a revote, the result would be the opposite of the first vote and the explanation for it would be as equally absurd as Buchanan’s self-serving explanation.

        Finac, the Stock Market is the primary propaganda engine of Washington. By inflating stock and securities valuations, more money can be printed without setting off inflation.

        The Fed and U.S. Treasury are sitting on top of hundreds of billions in worthless derivatives and securities. BUT, because the Feds have exclusive ownership of those instruments, they can set the price to whatever they want it to be. “Mark to Model” was the euphemism. THAT is what backs a good part of the U.S. fiat currency.

        Lest we forget, Ronald Reagan (he of Reaganomics) gave us the Plunge Protection Team. Their job is to bid up the stock market when it suffers a prolonged decline. There will be declines and the Feds are not above shorting the market on the down-low. But, they will never let the decline persist.

          But it was sort of cool to pay for my daughter 4 year college out of initial investment of less than 10 grand after putting it through “the primary propaganda engine”.

          And the main instrument the FED was using to print money and no to set off inflation in US is to export it to the rest of the world by using reserve status of US dollar.

          But that mechanism is almost completely exhausted.

    Russian Central Bank dumps the regime of “currency board” and joins the exclusive club of money-printers

    Today, Academician Sergei Glazyev won the first, but a very important conceptual victory – the country will issue additional money for direct targeted financing of the real sector of the domestic economy.

    Money emission will go in exchange for obligations (bonds) of certain domestic industrial and agricultural companies to increase domestic production.

    The head of the Central Bank of Russia Elvira Nabiullina acknowledged Glazyev correctness of the necessity of this step. The Bank of Russia prefers monetary emission spending foreign reserves to finance the growth of economy.

    Note that this policy of Russian CB differs from QE policy of the FED that prints money mostly to cover US federal budget deficit and re-capitalize speculative banks

    Top Google search IN THE U. K., post Brexit: “What is Brexit.”

    I thought we Amuricans had cornered the market and taken the crown with regard to first-world developed country ignorant morons. Evidently I was incorrect.

    I don’t care what Clinton-to-Trump ratio FiveThirtyEight is pumping out (and they didn’t do very well with Brexit) – there’s still a good chance for a Trump presidency.

    Bright side: it might accelerate the collapse that’s coming sooner or later. The faster we crash, the faster we reboot.

    • JimInFlorida July 2, 2016 at 12:34 pm #

      The Collapse will only work if the masses in the Bottom 80% are safeguarded from the fallout. The main shield must be an amplified revival of the Frazier-Lemke Act of 1934.

      Frazier-Lemke was initially passed to protect farmers from predatory banks and debt collectors. FDR asserted that protecting our food supply was more important that for the moneychangers to get their usury fees. The Supreme Court made a very shady and suspect decision against it. Congress came back with a weaker version and that stuck around, more or less, until 1949 when the banksters told Truman to get rid of it.

      What we need before the The Collapse and Reset is an amplified Frazier-Lemke that extends to primary residences. It will grant Allodial Title to all primary residences under $250K that have paid off their mortgage. The only time a property tax is paid is when the property is sold. All primary residences under $250K carrying a mortgage shall be granted the right to go to any judge, prove economic distress, and arrange payments based on the homeowner’s ability to pay. The banks must accept it and be forbidden to levy penalties of any kind. This protection will follow the mortgage regardless of who the bank sells it to.

      The objective is to protect people in their homes so when The Storm hits, the collapse will not destroy the social fabric. Even if an economic collapse causes the homeowner to be unable to pay for electric or water, that roof over their heads is SACROSANCT. It is the only way that they can have a base from which to rebuild from. Let the Top 1% eat the losses and forbid them from passing off the rind after they’ve already enjoyed the fruit.

      • FincaInTheMountains July 2, 2016 at 1:59 pm #

        In 1988 when I was leaving the Soviet Union, I needed to turn in my government apartment and get some papers to this fact.

        It turned out that I haven’t been paying my utility bills – including electric and gas – for 5 years and nobody bothered to remind me in any way.

        But I had to get the bills paid, otherwise I wouldn’t get all proper papers.

        • JimInFlorida July 2, 2016 at 2:57 pm #

          Sounds O.K. At least you were safe in your apartment and didn’t face eviction to live on the streets.

          In my variant for life in Amerika, creditors can place liens on the protected residence and collect ONLY when it sells. But, even THAT must have conditions and limitations. The Matrix’s power to make inflexible demands on the masses, for the tenuous privilege of accessing the means to live in the Matrix, must be checked and held at bay. Only THEN can The Collapse flush out all the rot in the system, purge the Top 1% and force them to release their claims, and leave an intact population in place. Ready to rebuild with a minimal loss to them.

          Remember, my amplified Frazier-Lemke Act is for times that are rapidly approaching. It is to protect the social fabric by preventing mass dislocation in order to satisfy the demands of moneychangers, usurers, collectors of economic rents, and the like. Such an Act should have been in place during the 2008-2009 collapse and the collapse of the mortgage bubble. I set a real estate protection limit of $250K because it falls in line with the price trend of middle class suburban housing in the U.S. Anything above that should be subject to a progressive annual property taxes and progressively lesser debt protection.

    The most amazing thing is huge concessions that have been achieved by Bernie Sanders from the leadership of the Democratic Party, without giving them in return the most important – endorsement of Hillary Clinton.

    Just to make it clear how much depends on it:

    Now Hillary has de facto seized the power in the country, without making any explicit crimes such as execution of the sitting President or her rivals in the presidential race or election commission members. Now the charges for organizing a coup could be brought up on the basis of nothing more than rampant self-promotion. However, to all concerned in the results of the elections and their ability to legitimize the current government should be clear that with the vote counting system, which was demonstrated by her in California, Trump chances of winning the general election do not exceed that of Sanders winning Democratic Convention.

    Actually now we have a situation in which there are simply no one to present her with charges as a result of the FBI or congressional committee investigation and to withdraw her from the election as a result of normal legal procedures is simply impossible.

    Trump must either flee to Scotland, or call on the American military and security agencies and the American people to intervene to bypass normal democratic procedures, after which he himself will be subject to imprisonment with confiscation of property on the basis of the Smith Act.

    But if Sanders candidacy will not be put up for a vote at the convention in Philadelphia, the self-declaration of Hillary Clinton as presumptive nominee from the act of self-promotion will become a high crime, and excuse to declare a state of emergency.

    And if her candidacy will be put to a vote on an equal basis with Bernie Sanders, it is still unknown how the delegates will vote, fearful of responsibility for participation in her crimes. This is especially true for the super-delegates, who will have to vote in writing on a stamped paper with signature notarized and sealed by the Secretary of State.

    And Bernie Sanders could save the Democratic Party National Committee from all these problems by simply endorsing Hillary Clinton!!

    Yet he was able to force them to adopt a new program of the Democratic Party, which now resembles a program of the Social Democratic Party of Sweden, in exchange for a promise to vote for Hillary personally(!!!). He did not even appeal to his supporters to vote for Hillary, who hate Bastinda to such an extent that refuse to eat, and in ever growing numbers are going to vote for Trump, not only independent, but also the registered members of the Democratic Party.

    vox.com/2016/7/1/12077846/daily-show-sanders-trump-jessica-williams?yptr=yahoo

    And while Bernie is risking his life, playing these games with a queen of the flying monkeys, confusion is growing in the ranks of hard-boiled Clintonites, and belief in Bastinda victory worldwide melts, especially after Trump, without spending a penny, in polls hangs on the Hillary tail, who just spent tens of millions of dollars on political advertising in the last 2 weeks!

    Things reached the point that Trump albeit in jest, but began entertain the possibility of inviting Bernie Sanders as his vice-president, with Fareed Zakaria playing a middle man which tells that negotiations are going not between the candidates, but their supporting groups.

    Personally, I have no information on how will Bastinda manage to consolidate and hold in her hands the seized power, in addition to the spectacle of rats running from her ship, but when one of these rats become Hillary’s very own husband and Attorney General of the USA Loretta Lynch, it is difficult to resist the far-reaching conclusions that not so smooth in the camp of the flying monkeys.

      Very likely in the context of Bill reminding Loretta about how the future’s of their grandchildren (meaning, Loretta’s grandkids!) will be harmed if she allows the indictment of Hillary to go forward. Translation: “Loretta, my goons will kill your grandkids if Hillary’s campaign is ruined because of you.”

      When going after Hillary Rodan and Slick Willie, half measures and subtleties cannot be used. It must be a sudden arrest of both and seizure of all their assets. It has to be a nuclear first strike with everything. All the evidence and charges had better be ready and hot in the silos; ready to launch. Incrementalism will allow ample time for the Clintonista goon squads to arrange Loretta’s “suicide” and to flood the airwaves with lies against Trump.

      The Justice Department had better have Putin on retainer because he has the dirt on Hillary. Trump will have to stop with the flip-flopping and join in because he will be a target of Hillary’s Flying Monkeys.

    Yes, and Obama a political party prop from the most politically corrupt city/state in America, Chicago/Illinois, had his political appointee, Loretta “Canklesaurus’ Lynch, meet with the de facto, or, in waiting, party leader on a runway.

          Essentially, Hitler calls out the very same mafias that plague We Teh Serfs, right here and NOW in ZOG Amerika! He lambasted the moneychangers in London and castigates the immoral energies of the Jewish merchants and Jewish playwrights who corrupted the moral fiber of German society with homosexual and interracial plays during the Weimar Republic.

          Hitler also called for building the Autobahn and making cars affordable for all Germans so they could travel and enjoy vacations. YES, he said that and made it happen. A LOT of things he called for would resonate with the angry Silent White Majority in ZOG Amerika BECAUSE we are now experiencing the same ubiquitous and stinking rot that caused desperate Germans to embrace Hitler.

          Hitler did NOT want war but, was forced to take preemptive measures because the Jews in London were calling in all their favors to draw Washington into war. Thus helping them put Germany back on to the Rothschild’s assets and balance sheets.

    Post- Brexit news:

    U.S. stocks booked a fourth straight daily gain Friday, and the Dow and S&P 500 marked their best week this year. Oh, how terrible the Brexit fallout! Not.

      The Plunge Protection Team is aggressively bidding up (and even buying) the stock market to dupe the gullible and put hedge fund hyenas at ease.

      Thanks to 35 unbroken years of Reaganomics, Wall Street is all we have left and it is the Ultimate Big Lie of all time. Without Wall Street, NFL, and Hollyweird, the whole world would see how naked, betrayed, and wretched the U.S.A. truly is.

      A fat and naked madman; wearing nothing but a tattered red, white, and blue top hat. Brandishing a double-barreled shotgun and coked out of his mind. That’s Uncle Sam for the 21st century.

    Austria: One step to freedom: Euro-skeptics have canceled the election results

    The news is almost as good as Brexit: “The results of the presidential elections in Austria were canceled – this was the decision of the Constitutional Court of the country, announced on Friday as a result of the suit by “Freedom Party “, that challenged the results of the vote, lost by their candidate.”

    This is an unprecedented victory for Euro-skeptics (and friends of Moscow). Now, in practice, it is clear that the classical scheme of pro-Clintonite governments of Europe, in which due to ballot box stuffing and outright fraud could block the victory of anti-Clintonite political forces, no longer works. Separately, it is worth noting that the scrapping of an old scheme has been held at the elite level. Who could bend over the country’s highest court? Voters? Do not make me laugh.

    The Clintonites plan to isolate Russia and China from Europe, as well as the use of Europe as a battering ram against Russia, is crumbling before our eyes. The Kremlin once again made the right bet. The split of the political elite in Europe is bringing concrete results.

    The third round of the Austrian elections, which will take place in 2-3 months Euro skeptics still need to win, but the chances of the victory are very good.

      Merkel’s mudsharking Germany is the E.U’s backstop.

      The Kremlin must figure out how to fabricate and administer a political Syrup of Ipecac to the German body-politic. The German State is suffering from a societal Irritable Bowel Syndrome and White Germans are desperate for relief.

      Until Germany projectile vomits out all the 3rd worlders, Muslims, AND foreign NGO enablers, the E.U. will still hang on.

        In accordance with the Newspeak Dictionary, in the footnotes for PC(Political Correctness), it is a Department within the Ministry of Truth (MiniTrue). In Newspeak, it is listed as, “MiniTrue, DPC”

        DPC acts as proof reader for outgoing propaganda, scans for crimethink in the media, and punishes resistance to multiculturalism.

          DPC will prove very useful in the battle against reactionary forces gathering in Cleveland, Ohio later this month. This can be the essential tool in crushing, once and for all, white non citizens who have not yet atoned for their collective guilt, and still act as tho they have a reason to live, and breath free air.

    Hillary Clinton for 3.5 hours was questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and that happened 2 days after Bill Clinton met with US Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

    And it raises the question of conflict of interest of Loretta Lynch on whose desk at any time now can go the criminal case of Hillary Clinton and that she will have to take the decision whether to transfer the case to a grand jury which will mark the end of her electoral campaign.

    And Loretta Lynch is under a great pressure from all sides, and the absence of this interrogation was her only defense, because without it, the FBI did not have the right to put in front of her such a choice.

    And now many on TV are wondering about the connection of the interrogation with the meeting Loretta Lynch had with Bill Clinton, with most commentators coming to the conclusion that Loretta Lynch specifically arranged that meeting to jump off the train and not to sign off on the official Hillary indictment. Albeit at the cost of her job, but not to sign! And yesterday, these same commentators have concluded that the purpose of the meeting – to play for time, since the removal of the Attorney General is a rather lengthy process.

    Now any playing for time will be difficult and I am personally interested in another question: why in this case, Bill Clinton agreed to participate and whether he will now drink the water, which his wife will give to him? Did she told him that she would not take him with her to a luxury fallout shelter or severely restrict the number of bimbos he can take with him?

    Zugzwang in its pure form: to fire the public prosecutor could be a long and troublesome endeavor, and the audience (and the army, which don’t care about such commander in chief) in this situation are unlikely to agree with a long procedure.

    In this situation, everybody has remembered about President Obama, who should take a decision and issued a decree to settle the conflicts of interest. But it turned out that his endorsement of Hillary Clinton also represents a conflict of interests, and he jumped off the train long time ago. I always thought he was a very clever man. He looks very badly again.

    Elysianfield said: So, you rail against human nature? You beat your chest and rend your hair over something immutable…unchanging?

    Is there such a thing as “human nature?” You imply there is, and that it’s a static proposition. I’m not so sure. I think Humanity is incredibly malleable, and significant force has been applied by The Combine to prevent that mutability/malleability.

    • elysianfield July 4, 2016 at 12:12 am #

      Cold,
      I believe that human nature IS unchanging…fear, loathing, sloth, envy, love, hatred, covetousness, tribalism or nationalism. These feelings, failings and more are codified, well understood. It is the job of religion, and the goal of civilization to mitigate how humans react to their base feelings…but the feelings remain unchanged through generations.

      To err is human,
      To Oink, porcine,
      Civilization, inexorably on the decline….

      If Human nature was flexible, then history would have little meaning as a teacher, or punisher.

      The U.S. will only run out of easy and profitable oil energy. There are always alternatives, which will include scaling back our expectations and making the necessary adjustments.

      First order of business is to mercilessly plunder the Top 1% and claw back all the wealth that they “legally” stole over the past 35 years. National survival will have precedence over their claims.

      With the recovered money in hand, next thing is to do what Jim and Duncan Crary once discussed on the old KunstlerCast. Redevelopment of river transport and canals. Rivers and canals can do what rail freight has successfully done. Transport loaded trailers and containers between supply nodes.

      Add to that, rebuilding our domestic heavy smokestack industry and develop a better version of our rail system. A double-width track that does away with the ultra primitive truck which makes the wheels and axle a solid unit. Such would be a major improvement with little effort. Passenger cars would be lower, more spacious, handle turns better, and be more stable at high speed.

      Coal will have to come out of retirement and be reintroduced to fill in where oil energy is failing. Modern emission controls will mitigate much of the pollution but, realistic expectations must prevail.

      Finally, with energy in a more limited but still available and affordable form, dirigisme will have to squelch frivolous and non-productive waste of the available energy. The flood of trashy consumer crap will come to an end. There will be food, clothing, electricity, sanitation, necessary appliances, comprehensive public transportation, and housing. Unleavened bread but no circuses. People may even decide that a scaled down life won’t be so bad as long as the basics are still readily available and that The Top 1% took a solid beat-down to help pay for the transition.

    Coal will have to come out of retirement…” –JiminFlorida

    Nope. Coal must stay in the ground. It has killed enough people. As the 2nd amendment says: “A well-armed anti-coal militia has the right to keep and bear RPGs”

    Specifically, Abt Associate’s analysis finds that fine particle pollution from existing coal plants is expected to cause nearly 13,200 deaths in 2010. Additional impacts include an estimated 9,700 hospitalizations and more than 20,000 heart attacks per year. The total monetized value of these adverse health impacts adds up to more than $100 billion per year.

    This burden is not distributed evenly across the population. Adverse impacts are especially severe for the elderly, children, and those with respiratory disease. In addition, the poor, minority groups, and people who live in areas downwind of multiple power plants are likely to be disproportionately exposed to the health risks and costs of fine particle pollution.
