Orphan thumbnail

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.

Lest you wonder, not only did I not vote for Mr. Trump (or Hillary), but I relished heaping opprobrium on him during the election campaign. Just so you know, I’m not advocating for him, but I’m alarmed that the Deep State (the White House + the Intel Agency gang) now appears to be trying to hack the electoral college vote against him.

The headline deployed everywhere last week, “Russia Hacks Election,” was designed by the Deep State players to deviously lead the broadly dim public to think that Russia somehow interfered with the balloting process, which was not possible since voting machines are not hooked up to the internet. And then it was repeated endlessly by the cable news networks and the newspapers, under the number one rule of propaganda: that if you repeat something often enough, the public will swallow it.

This dishonest meme was also designed to distract the public from the substance of the emails disclosed by WikiLeaks — namely, the scamming and trickery of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and the influence-peddling of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, which had her flirting with indictment last summer, and only reinforced her already-established public image as an unscrupulous person.

The New York Times especially worked the “Russia Hacks Election” story to a fare-the-well, saying in its Sunday edition:

The Central Intelligence Agency has concluded that Moscow put its thumb on the scale for Mr. Trump through the release of hacked Democratic emails, which provided fodder for many of the most pernicious false attacks on Mrs. Clinton on social media.

False attacks? What, that Hillary’s cronies put the DNC’s “thumb on the scale” against Bernie Sanders? That Donna Brazille gave Hillary debate questions beforehand? That as Secretary of State Hillary gave more face-time to foreign supplicants based on their contributions to the Clinton Foundation, and expedited arms deals for especially big givers? That she collected millions in speaking fees for sucking up to Too-Big-To-Fail bankers? That The Times and The WashPo and CNN reporters were taking direction from Hillary’s PR operatives?

Consider, too, how the Deep State “Russia Hacks Election” meme was ramped up to top volume coincidentally the week before the electoral college vote, as a last-ditch effort was launched by the old-line media, the diehard Hillary partisans, and a bunch of Hollywood celebrities, to persuade electoral college delegates to switch their votes to deprive Trump of his election victory.

President Obama did his bit to amplify the message by coloring Russian President Vladimir Putin as being behind the so-called hacking because “not much happens in Russia without, you know, Vladimir Putin,” just like not much happened in old Puritan New England without the involvement of Old Scratch. So now we have an up-to-date Devil figure to stir the paranoid imaginations of an already divided and perturbed public.

Hillary and her supporters have vehemently asserted that “seventeen intelligence agencies” agree with the assessment that Russia hacked the election. It might be greater news to the American people to hear that there actually are seventeen such agencies out there. Perhaps Mrs. Clinton or Mr. Obama might explain exactly what they are beyond the CIA, the FBI, the DIA, the NSA, and DHS. Personally, I feel less secure knowing that there are so many additional surveillance services sifting through everybody’s digital debris trail.

There’s been some chagrin among more prudent observers that neither the various Intel gang chiefs, including James Clapper, overall Director of National Intelligence, nor the White House have provided a shred of evidence that WikiLeaks got the Hillary emails from the Russians. One might even suppose that we discovered the hack by hacking the Russians, perhaps even Mr. Putin’s personal iPhone — but, wait a minute… we don’t intrude on other nations’ business. We don’t use the internet to spy (!) on anybody.

It will be interesting to see how Mr. Trump gets along with the Intel gang when (and if) he actually makes it into the oval office. It’s nice to think that he will fire a bunch of them, and then fire a bunch more, and maybe take a good hard look at these seventeen security and surveillance agencies and maybe shut a few of them down. In the meantime, their activity begins to look like the attempted coup d’état I warned about a few months ago.

Forgive me for changing the subject so briskly, but there was another front page piece in The New York Times on Sunday that kind of said it all about where that Old Gray Lady’s collective head is at these days. Behold this quote from the story What Women Really Think of Men:

As the country prepares to revert to white male rule, our common condition for all but eight of the last 240 years, we should think harder about why we assume so little of men, including ones we may be married to. Too many men don’t prove those expectations wrong, and are rewarded anyway with prizes like the presidency.

    I suspect the Russian Hack story is containment meant to obscure the much larger & much more pernicious Truth, and that Truth is, The American Oligarchs who comprise the entire Establishment are, in their entirety, treasonous traitors who should be apprehended and tried by The People’s Court. It’ll never happen, but it should.

    • shotho December 19, 2016 at 10:14 am #

      I would be careful with that “people’s court” thing. We’ve been down that road before and it wasn’t very pretty.

      • Elrond Hubbard December 19, 2016 at 11:45 am #

        I would add that Cold should spell out in clear words what exactly is being betrayed. It’s not enough to declare that the capital-E Establishment has betrayed America in some metaphorical sense. The crime of treason is very clearly spelled out in Article Three of the constitution: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” Pushing the definition of “levying war” or “aid and comfort to the enemy” to encompass this kind of political rot is liable to further degrade the already degraded institutions, not rebuild them.

        • Cold N. Holefield December 19, 2016 at 12:09 pm #

          Perhaps both of you missed the operative phrase “It’ll never happen.” Precisely because you need it spelled out for you. As bibliomaniac says deep down in the comments, Knaves & Fools. Forever it’s been and forever it will be until Man exists no more.

      And by golly a treasonous traitor is a whole lot more pernicious than a patriotic traitor!

  2. orbit7er December 19, 2016 at 8:47 am #

    I too am very suspicious of the Russian hack as the cause of Hillary Clinton, whom I also did not support as I voted for Jill Stein, as the cause of Hillary’s electoral debacle. The Wikileaks emails just verified the corruption of the Clinton machine and the way they successfully headed off Bernie Sanders who would’ve won in a landslide.
    Of far more concern to me is the 75,000 votes not counted in Detroit, the voter suppression efforts, the closing of over 800 polling places, the right wing campaign to tilt the field with rampant gerrymandering.
    Greg Pallast had a fantastic article on Michigan’s uncounted votes on DemocrayNow :

    democracynow.org/2016/12/13/greg_palast_by_rejecting_recount_is

    And also see:

    democracynow.org/2016/11/7/this_is_voting_in_2016_armed

    This is why I DO support electoral college revolt.
    Based on Trump’s appointment of generals and far right wing opponents of the agencies they are supposed to lead it is very doubtful Trump will tame the Deep State or the endless Wars.
    I wish Trump WOULD cancel the F-35 for $1 Trillion, new Air Force One for $4 Billion, a new generation of dangerous nuclear weapons for $1 Trillion, the 1000 US bases all over the world and the 234 golf courses we pay for overseas.
    But in all likelihood like everything else Trump says and does he is likely to cut a deal so long as he and his cronies get some of the loot.
    If we do not cut Trump off now then how will we do it when he gets his hands on the NSA data on every American…
    See the request for all Energy Agency employees who attended Climate Change meetings…

      BINGO on the Palast story and the Hillary debacle. She is there to continue bankster rule, but wait….Trump has a few too. So does that mean he’s forced to take these playas too?

      Let’s just say that the people of all countries who are stuck as a captive audience despise project globalism. Neoliberalism is an abject failure and everyone knows it even if they don’t know it by name!

    • Janos Skorenzy December 19, 2016 at 3:29 pm #

      It was a Masterful Move. Now if these Satanic Scum (who fired many generals who said no when asked if they would fire on American citizens) who try anything, Trump has the Deep Military on his side. He already had the rank and file, now he has the Old Guard.

      Fear not, we’re in, if not good hands, better ones than Hillary’s.

    You are absolutely correct, JHK, to point out the lies of the deep state and corporate mainstream press. It’s very disturbing how they are now going after “fake news” on the internet. It’s also the height of hypocrisy since the MSM pressitutes are the purveyors of lies and propaganda. Please give us your views on pizzagate, a story which reveals the true character of the ruling elite.

    • James Howard Kunstler December 19, 2016 at 9:05 am #

      I don’t know what to make of Pizzagate. It seems on its face absurd… but John Podesta’s brother sure collects some nasty art.

      • hmuller December 19, 2016 at 9:17 am #

        Don’t forget all the coded language and the spirit cooking – people eating semen, blood, urine, shit, etc. There are pedophile and occult connections here. It takes an honest “liberal” like yourself to look beneath “the face of it” and give an objective evaluation. You’ve ignored this issue too long. Your fans want your opinion.

        • Elrond Hubbard December 19, 2016 at 11:49 am #

          Oh dear God. “People eating semen, blood, urine, shit, etc.”? This is moral panic 101. Get a grip.

          • Janos Skorenzy December 19, 2016 at 3:33 pm #

            You too, eh? There is a moral order, Elrond. And as Aragorn said, it is the same now and forever and the same among Men, Elves, and Dwarves.

            People who view and collect such art, and engage in such rituals are clearly not on the side of good. If they will do all this publicly or on camera, what must they do privately?

          • hmuller December 19, 2016 at 4:23 pm #

            Oh dear God, mockery from an uninformed elitist. Shall I hide under my bed in shame, and lament my condition as a “deplorable”? Get informed or wiggle your ass in the dance of a hundred mockeries. i really don’t give a shit. If you can’t address the facts of the case, you have nothing of value to say on this topic, Elrond!

          • Elrond Hubbard December 19, 2016 at 11:32 pm #

            Yes, moral panic. Let’s lay out the facts. John Podesta’s brother Tony is a fan of Marina Abramovi? and a collector of her work. Marina Abramovi? is apparently the original performance artist from whom all the clichés about weirdo performance artists have descended. One of her works in particular is something called Spirit Cooking, which includes the following ‘recipes’ among others:

            – in time of doubt / keep a small meteorite stone / in your mouth

            Ooh, satanic! Is it a pedophilic meteorite stone? How would that work exactly? It doesn’t say that it’s sexual-organ shaped, but maybe there’s a secret agreement among the Illuminati.

            – fresh morning urine / sprinkle over nightmare dreams

            Hmm. Fresh morning urine isn’t hard to come by, but where do I get “nightmare dreams”? Is nightmare dreams an actual menu item at Comet Ping Pong? Are nightmare dreams served on toast? Do they come with a side of fries?

            – 3 glasses of water / that a ruby has been soaking in for 3 days / 1 pomegranate

            Expensive, but this one is actually feasible since water, pomegranate and a ruby are all physical objects.

            – take 13 leaves of uncut green cabbage with / 13,000 grams of jealousy / steam for a long time in a deep iron pot / until all water evaporates / eat just before attack

            What is this I can’t even. What are jealousy futures going for on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange right now?

            Enough. The thing about all of the above is that they are just words. Every so often some fucking genius in the art world discovers they can get attention with some provocative stunt or other. Years back when the whole kerfuffle about Robert Mapplethorpe‘s photography happened, at least there were actual things that happened, e.g. he actually did photograph one guy pissing in another’s mouth and so forth. This Spirit Cooking thing is just crimethink, nothing more.

            Moral panic, fuckers. If you don’t like that kind of stuff, just settle down and eat a perfectly normal peanut butter and jelly sandwich until you feel better.

            Don’t forget the Catholic Church scandal, subject of the recent film, Spotlight.
            That was supposed to be the reason for the Pope stepping down, he was in too poor a state of health to battle the corruption within the Church.
            The new, PC Pope seems just to have changed the subject, to US immigration policy at our southern border.
            I did not now that about Laura Silsby and Amber Alert. All I knew was there was a group headed by her, claiming to be a Christian group, taking advantage of a disaster to grab people’s children. The MSM did not do an adequate job following up on that story.
            Creepy Podesta is palsy with equally creepy Mark Alan Siegel. If you are too creepy for the NYS Legislature, you are too creepy.
            timesofisrael.com/florida-local-democratic-party-official-resigns-over-remarks-on-christians/
            Podesta and Siegel had some weird anti-catholic thing going on as well.
            Pizzagate to me sounds fake, but that could just be the normal human response to the idea that there are people like that in high places, hiding in plain sight.
            Why does the media talk about everything they can think of possibly related to the emails in question, Anthony and Huma, what his ‘therapy’ costs, crap like that, but they will not touch the pizza allegations with a ten foot pole?
            Wouldn’t normal people, knowing their were such ghastly rumors out there, gaining traction, want to dispel them and clear their good name?

            Child molesting, abuse, sex trafficking, rape and murder are subjects that the Common American Idiot either refuses to believe out of mind numbing fear or enjoys the practice themselves so denial is only natural. Those of us who grew up in households and families in law enforcement and government are all too well aware of the fact that such evil has always existed. Our Dad’s, Uncle’s and Brothers told many a tale of their own horrifying personal experiences with the criminals they busted for such heinous crimes. The realities of such demonic behavior is deeply hidden by those in power (since so many are and have always been perpetrators of such evils) and denial always works to confuse the idiots. I seriously doubt that this scourge will ever be fully expunged and certainly never eliminated but it is times such as these when hopes soar that perhaps a direct frontal assault will someday be made on these creatures, but I am not going to hold my breath waiting for it.

            ‘Don’t forget the Catholic Church scandal, subject of the recent film, ‘Spotlight.’

            I haven’t seen the film (I don’t watch any) and I don’t know that much about the Boston scandal but everything I have learnt to date supports my opinion that it is a witch hunt pure and simple. The case of Fr Paul Shanley, a trendy homosexual priest (who would have gone down well with the hipsters), seems to have started the panic, and once a witch hunt starts there is absolutely no end to the nonsense. Whatever Shanley did it is clear that his trial was a joke, relying on recovered memories.

            irishsalem.com/international-controversies/usa/WypijewskiTheNation-16Mar09.php

            There are other articles by the same journalist (JoAnn Wypijewski) on this linked website. In one of them the interested reader will find one of my favourite bits, where one of the accusers is tipped off by (I seem to recall) his best friend’s girlfriend and takes off to make his own claim (the sums awarded are reportedly around half a million dollars per case, if this (like literally everything) can be believed). One got 1.4m. Another of the claimants had his epiphany on a plane flight to Las Vegas where he had gone (reportedly) to do a spot of gambling. Three of the cases were withdrawn just before the trial because they were so shaky.

            If this case in turn sounds like a shaky foundation on which to start a massive witch hunt then it is fairly typical in my experience.

            The Irish anti-clerical witch hunt was equally insane. At the end of it mainstream opinion here in Ireland (ie very nearly everyone here to takes an interest in anything) is now convinced that everything they thought they knew about their church an their neighbours, their country and its history, all of it was wrong. Apparently a ‘holocaust’ was underway in residential ‘children’s’ homes and nobody even knew about it, although there were apparently dark rumours!

            And don’t get me started on the Jimmy Savile case. He is the man who, after his death (of course), was ‘revealed’ as Britain’s worst sexual offender (by the Police and the country’s main children’s charity, the NSPCC), with a list of ‘victims’ ranging from infants to corpses. Once again, nobody actually knew what was happening because he had super powers including time travel, invisibility, the power to walk through solid walls and, above all, the ability to molest and ‘abuse’ anyone and everyone In Plain Sight (although nobody saw anything). If you actually look at the accusations (which very few do – this is how these things work) it is usually clear within two minutes that they are complete nonsense. A few of the cases have been harder to disprove. I am not aware of any that are even half-way convincing. I must disclose an interest in this: back in February, before I started looking at it, I told my sister on Facebook that it was likely that nearly everything would be lies and exaggeration and that there was a chance, however small, that it all is. Well, now I have looked, I am fairly sure it all is.

            Just think about it for ten seconds. If a case like this is too far fetched to be true it is because it isn’t true.

            That millions think it is true doesn’t alter it. That is what a witch hunt is: an unbelievable fable that everyone believes.

            There is enough nonsense in the Savile case to fill a small library. Figures are plucked out of thin air. How many accusations were actually made? Nobody really knows, so they just make it up. Double, triple-counted. Anyone who rang up one of the ‘helplines’, is deemed a ‘victim’. It has changed my approach towards anything reported anywhere about anything. Unless I look up the facts (as far as they can be ascertained) I remain fairly sceptical that it happened.

            Even now, they still cannot even spell his name right: Savile, not Saville. They cannot get anything right about anything. It is a demented alternative universe.

            If you look at the comments section about Savile on YouTube it is full of the armies of the insane calling for him to burn in hell. This is obviously where the manic depressives go to spend their sleepless evenings.

            I haven’t looked at Pizzagate. I did start watching a video last week but my eyes glazed over.Try it yourself and see if you can do any better than me.

        I thought it was all absurd too at first but it’s become something that is bothersome to me, especially MSM’s treatment if it. Comet pizza’s instagram and twitter history is VERY disturbing as well as the ‘majestic ape’ “comedy” presented there and the “art” shows that literally depict rape. I mean it’s just beyond inappropriate. I get dark humor and satire but this shit is appalling for a FAMILY PIZZA JOINT. I would love to hear your opinion James, after checking some of that stuff out. And John Podesta’s art is just as horrifying as his brothers. I mean the dude has giant paintings of dead little girls in a swamp. WTF?!?

        Anyways, I really enjoy your writing and perspective. It’s people like you who are going to bring this country together, if it has any chance of survival.

            Sean Coleman,

            I absolutely agree with you, and this why this ‘scandal’ is so bothersome to me. I believe that thorough personal discernment of the shitnado of purposefully deceitful information we are constantly inundated with is of paramount importance in the attempt to live an authentic existence. I would much rather believe that it’s just a ‘hoax’ and nothing is going on. In fact, besides the above comment, I’ve completely given up on it because even if it were true there is absolutely nothing I can do about it. That said, have you actually researched any of it? I would personally not recommend it as it is undeniably disturbing, however I think you (and any reasonable human for that matter) would at the minimum conclude extremely odd and very suspect circumstances surrounding this ‘hoax’. And perhaps most odd is MSM’s reaction and all of the INTENSE censorship occurring with anything relating to it.

            As you say, there is so much information that it is extremely difficult to know what is going on. For my own part this task is made a little bit easier in that, whatever I may or may not know, at least I can be sure that none of *this* stuff is true.

      The video taken by Alex Jones at the Bohemian Grove shows what the elite do when they hang out. It’s right out of Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut”.

      More than likely, his courageous reporting of that activity isn’t covered by the MSM, because the people who own or have power over the MSM were at that gathering.

          Just having a bit of fun. The darkness is real, but I don’t think Jones caught anything too bad on film. Very strange, but not bad. Btw, the people weren’t just fooling around – this was a serous ritual and they believed. Thus the tiny owl on the dollar bill – a tribute the Owl Cult among the Elite.

    All of this banter about the Russians “hacking” the election and the need for electors to disregard their duty and vote for {whoever} is interesting to say the least. I agree wholeheartedly with JHK’s assertion about the lie repeated enough to become truth. If in fact it was Russia that hacked the DNC and HRC’s operatives, what difference does that make? The point is there was a treasure trove of damaging data there for the revealing. Who could blame Russia for preferring the Donald over HRC? It’s just a matter of self preservation; HRC #1 stated goal upon taking the Presidency was to establish a no fly zone in Syria, a direct showdown w/Russia.

    The legacy media has been regurgitating the ‘Russians hack election’ meme with more zeal than many of its favorite old standbys, like “27 million more Americans have health insurance under ACA” and “having a gun in your home makes you 78% more likely to be shot” and “the US economy is experiencing robust resurgence”….

    And at the same time they’re lighting torches and grabbing pitchforks against “fake news” – LOL!

    • Beryl of Oyl December 19, 2016 at 11:47 am #

      I am starting to lean toward the “fake news” thing being an effort to mitigate something they are expecting to be revealed when a new administration assumes power, that is so very bad they want people believing it’s a fabrication.
      These people could not allow anybody but Hillary to follow the Obama administration. If it was just a fear that all of the good they saw Obama as having done would be undone, they could just as easily have supported Bernie, but they were just as afraid of him as they were of Trump.
      I see it as Syria or this Pizza thing, or both. Hillary may have been motivated by money, but money is not enough of a reason for Obama’s conduct, IMO, the only motivator I see for him is his legacy.

      chuckyzfr1,
      You’ve hit upon the crux of the matter; the one that weak-willed authority-lovers will not/cannot allow to be internalized and mulled over. *Because* one of the resultant conclusions is that we are being sorely used and our freedoms [in all things] curtailed so as to make it easier for Thems-In-Charge to extract unearned profit from our labors (amongst many other evil doings).

      The reasons for the terrifying and all-too-obvious slavish promotion of Queen Hillary were right there for the deducing of those with eyes to see and a couple brain cells to rub together.

      Diana Johnstone puts it quite succinctly:

      “…It seems that the political machine backing Hillary Clinton can’t stand losing an election.

      And why is that?

      Because they are determined to impose “exceptional” America’s hegemony on the entire world, using military-backed regime changes, and Donald Trump seems poised to spoil their plans. The entire Western establishment, roughly composed of neoconservative ideologues, liberal interventionists, financial powers, NATO, mainstream media and politicians in both the United States and Western Europe, committed to remaking the Middle East to suit Israel and Saudi Arabia and to shattering impertinent Russia, have been thrown into an hysterical panic at the prospect of their joint globalization project being sabotaged by in ignorant intruder.

      Donald Trump’s expressed desire to improve relations with Russia throws a monkey wrench into the plans endorsed by Hillary Clinton to “make Russia pay” for its bad attitude in the Middle East and elsewhere. If he should do what he has promised, this could be a serious blow to the aggressive NATO buildup on Russia’s European borders, not to mention serious losses to the U.S. arms industry planning to sell billions of dollars worth of superfluous weapons to NATO allies on the pretext of the “Russian threat”. ”

      All the rest of these moral alarums espoused on this very comment section are *nothing* compared to these very real world-busting bastards and their intentions to rule without restraint of any kind. So much distraction in a time of necessary focus; I’m more than disappointed, I’m disgusted at the ease at which “we” can be led by the nose. (Note the lengthy blathering on the pizzagate shit. Tangentially, it speaks to the amorality of dese elite, but those who drool over power perform this ugliness *everywhere* and it’s NOT NEW. Why the sudden outrage? Distraction from the content of the original JHK missive. BTW, this comment *in no way* absolves abusers of any kind; the sooner they get what’s coming to them, the better… right here in THIS world.)

      That is all, and thanks for the point of actual focus.

  7. Greg Knepp December 19, 2016 at 9:32 am #

    At a press conference a few weeks prior to the election, as the rigging story was in its early play, Putin mused, “has America become a banana republic that its elections can be so easily rigged by foreign nations?”

    Cheeto-colored baboon raises his tiny meat-hook and swears to enrich his followers.

    The parade of fools never ends. Businesses across the board are salivating at the chance to hire workers because they know the economy is going to finally be freed from the ghastly imbeciles who know nothing of wealth creation.

    Apple, IBM, Carrier, that Nippon company with 50,000 new jobs…

    I’m looking forward to working as a programmer again, my industry’s humming in the face of oncoming prosperity.

      • K-Dog December 19, 2016 at 11:10 am #

        This fool knows how to play an audience very well. About some things he certainly is a fool but in other ways he is not. Part of the appeal of Trump is his inconsistency. He is, as many of us are; a strange mix of genius and idiocy truth be told.

        Patriotism is not felt by those who consider themselves citizens of the global economy (like Obama does). Get rich enough and those able will buy foreign property and become ex-pats once they throw us under the bus they want to ride to exotic lands.

        Remember the movie ‘Body Heat”. In it William Hurt as Ned:

        ‘looks in Matty’s high school yearbook and finds that she is, in reality, Mary Ann Simpson, and her ambition was: “To be rich and live in an exotic land,” a wish that is fulfilled in the last image of “Matty” lying on a beach somewhere in an exotic land.’

    As far as interest rates, they’re going up to keep the imminent economic burst at a measured clip, the Fed knows businesses will now borrow to grow.

      The businesses that are “represented” have tons of cash on hand, and borrowing at high rates when you have gobs of cash on hand is not prudent.

    This election was a proxy war between the FBI and the CIA, and the FBI won. The “fake news” and election hacking conspiracy theories are the CIA/Deep State attempt to recover some ground.
    The CIA, and their shills at the NYT/WAPO, are basically running a massive disinfo psyop on the whole country, and apparently at least half the country is buying it.
    the U.S. not only spies on every country on earth, but has directly interfered with elections in Russia, Ukraine, Chile, Indonesia and Iran to name the most prominent examples.
    the Deep State and the beltway elites are having a collective nervous breakdown and they’ve convinced a majority of liberals to join them.
    As a former liberal, it pains me to watch educated and normally reasonable people cave in to what amounts to a type of mass hysteria.
    I’m not a Trump supporter, but he’s exposed the hypocrisy and corruption of the political/media establishment in a way no one else has in several generations and for that alone he deserves credit.
    I don’t think the Cloud People who live in NYC/LA/DC and feed us lies and propaganda for a living have really thought all this through.
    They really believe their own bull***t, and they seem to assume the Dirt People can’t or won’t ever pull the plug on them and their nonsense.

        It’s something most women secretly believe. It may have even served a purpose under Patriarchy: If a man is abusing a woman, all the women of the village unite against him and complain to the Elders.

    Are people rational 90% of the time and only 10% of the time they loose it and and believe and act from caprice or is it the other way around. The answer is the other way around.

    The idea is that the electoral college would be influenced if enough people bought the fake news that Russia elected trump. Appeal to authority is a strong draw among the dim. If it appears in the New York times it must be true is a belief many hold. I recall more than one article here has referenced the NYT as the ‘newspaper of record’ and made the appeal to authority.

    I’m happy I did not vote for Hillary or Trump. My paws are clean and yes I did vote. The zealous all-out college try of the Obama Administration to elect Hillary by way of deceit is an insult to anyone with a brain. It is also an insult to anyone without a brain but if a tree falls in the forest is there any sound? Some are insulted by this last ditch desperation of the Democrats but if they buy the fake news line of Russia electing Trump whey will never know they are being disrespected by the man who was never about any change you can believe or anyone else can believe in.

    Hacking is a word most people do not understand. Most people who hear the word ‘hacker’ assign super powers to the ‘hacker’ like powers of a character from a comic strip or action movie. The idea that the election was decided by men sitting behind keyboards at 2 AM in their short-clothes in a foreign country is ludicrous. The fact that it is even being tried should be a serious alarm bell leaving us all wondering what other gigantic whopper lies has the American public swallowed in the last eight years.

    Soon enough Trump will be the power behind the fake news and not Obama. I hope Trump shows more integrity than Obama has done and does not use the machinery of American propaganda to take us for fools like Obama clearly is doing and has been doing for eight long years.

      “Hacking is a word most people don’t understand”. The words “loose and lose” seem to be misunderstood also. It wouldn’t be a big deal if it didn’t happen so frequently in print in everything I read. Anyway, to the main point, I along with most other Trump voters would have voted for anyone but Clinton. Sanders had some issues in common with Trump but would probably have done nothing about immigration. I would have voted for good ole Vladimir himself over any of the Dems, Greens, etc. I don’t think Russia is taking in a lot of refugees.

      I just hacked into the electoral college and found out that since the votes are being cast in state capitals it is hard to say when Trump will reach the magic number of winning electoral votes. The votes from different states will be coming in at different times. Trump is poised to win 306 of the 538 electoral votes but as he does not need all 308 to win the time really can’t be predicted. In Missouri the electors are set to vote at 2 p.m.

      • PeteAtomic December 19, 2016 at 11:29 am #

        Sure.

        However, the Trump campaign didn’t need the help of some Russian to convince a blue collar guy in Missouri or Wisconsin (as examples) to not vote for HRC.

Who exactly are they supposed to vote for? HRC? Kasich? Ryan? Bernie Sanders?

    “The day loometh when the Cheeto-colored baboon….”

    ” Because this fool was able to sneak into office?…. – $20 trillion in debt the US is no longer a going concern.”

    Georges 1202

    Tut tut tut there Georges1202; your ad hominem attack on the President-elect is certainly vicious “Cheeto-colored baboon…” but perhaps you are just projecting some deep-seated albeit misplaced racist animosity. Now if you called Barry O. that caramel-colored baboon that would sting the Yzlamik Kenyan a hurtful bunch.

    ” Because this fool was able to sneak into office?.” Georges1202

    That’s exactly what Donald Trump did (NOT)- he first beat a field of 17 other Establishment contenders, over the course of many months, for the Republican nomination for the presidential contest. Then he barnstormed the nation with travel and tweets and shtick as P.T. Barnum would be proud of, and won the struggle for the highest office in the land HIS WAY. Suggesting he sneaked into the Oval Office in this case would be the same to claim that Jack Nicklaus used nefarious means to win 18 major golf championship.

    And all the nonsense about the “hacking of the election” by the Russians and that Vladimir Putin was personally involved frankly borders on psychosis.

    Don’t you just hate a sore loser?

    However ther Georges old boy, you are correct about the 20 TRILLION dollar national debt of the U.S.A. Please note that it was non other than Barack “Barry Soetoro” Hussein Obama who doubled it in his eight year presidency – an achievement we can believe in.

    Now Georges, I recommend you return back to your basement, load up the bong, turn on some NFL or NBA with some Tupac or Nicky Minaj playing in the background for the “real” truth.

    • capt spaulding December 19, 2016 at 11:37 am #

      EVERY president, except for Bill Clinton, has left an increased national debt for the next one. It doesn’t matter whether they are Democrat or Republican. For example, look at the deficit when Reagan assumed office, and look at it again when he left office.

      • AKlein December 19, 2016 at 12:49 pm #

        True enough, Kapitän, but at least Reagan, through massive defense expenditures, set the stage for the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Now, the benefit to that outcome was supposed to be a lowering of tensions and the “peace dividend”. Remember that the “peace dividend.” What we got, however, was “terrorism”. Incidentally, “terrorism” will never be “solved”. We must be forever vigilant (i.e. spend lots of money we don’t have on armaments.) And yes, certainly all the presidents after Reagan helped insure that the “peace dividend” never happened. But not Mr Reagan himself.

        • Cold N. Holefield December 19, 2016 at 1:13 pm #

          He didn’t set the final stage. Reagan merely blew on The Soviet Union and it crumbled to dust. It was that rotted and rusted out.

        • capt spaulding December 19, 2016 at 2:02 pm #

          I wasn’t trying to make Reagan look bad, my point was that the argument so many Republicans use against Obama or other Democrats is kind of pointless, since it happens with all of them. Do you wanna bet that the deficit under Trump will increase? Using the evidence of the past, that’s a bet I’ll take.

        • pequiste December 19, 2016 at 2:14 pm #

          Gorbachev dismantled the Soviet Union due to the demographic wave that would have made it a majority Yzlamik country just about now.

          Reagan just had excellent timing – as great actors are supposed to have.

          Old Ronnie, however, gave the whole illegal alien problem a yuge shove to the deluge point when he granted amnesty to 3 million of them.

    I really, really enjoyed today’s post.
    As all this nonsense unfolds, what was bothering me perhaps the most was the thought that among all these voices I hear on the television, there isn’t one of them with the intelligence and integrity not to go along with this horrible farce?
    How can it not bother any of them? One reporter’s “news” was an old clip of Donald Trump not liking the electoral college before, and a new clip of him saying he realizes why it was designed that way now. Just like any other grownup. It would have been salient to show a clip of Hillary Clinton or any Democrat railing AGAINST the electoral college BEFORE the election, but that would’ve spoiled the narrative.
    Oh, wait, the electoral college is okay, the electors just need an “intelligence briefing” before they vote, because Hillary says so.
    Again, how do people watch this, and not stand up and scream, “Enough!”?
    Didn’t Diane Feinstein cross swords with the CIA, not too long ago? What happened to her? The cat got her tongue?
    I digress.
    My point is, I’m actually grateful that someone with a national audience said these things.

    The Deep State’s and controlled Medias’ reaction to Trumps victory is disconcerting due to the hysterical tone, volume and frequency, but if The Donald has been provided his “Zapruder Briefing” there will be nothing for the Leviathan to worry about.

    Donald J. Trump wants nothing more than to be the Greatest President Ever (TM) and on his terms (a deal negotiated, of course, with the Evil-Fuckers-In-Charge who have undoubtedly let him know clearly what the strict parameters for his activities really are.)

      Pequiste, that is the first thought I had when all the furious back-pedaling began (even before his inauguration, which at this current pace of zaniness promises to be something of a letdown).

      When Obama had a curious meeting with a group of black supporters, they gently chided him for not following through on his promises and truly becoming a ‘peace president’; he reportedly reminded them of what had happened to others who had tried to buck the Security State (JFK in particular).

      All this squawking about ‘He’ll push the red button’ would be comical if it wasn’t so idiotic. Even with the ‘hair-trigger response’ necessary for nuclear retaliation, there are multiple levels of approval in place before the firing codes are released to commanders. The Preznit Donald will huff and puff but he’ll not blow down Russia or China.

      The colonels in the Pentagon aren’t particularly anxious to die in a nuclear firestorm either.

  27. lsjogren December 19, 2016 at 11:24 am #

    It seems comical to me that this is supposed to have had much influence on the election since the stream of embarrassing communications by the Democrats that were revealed by Wikileaks were almost completely ignored the establishment media and were only covered to any appreciable extent in outlets like Breitbart, whose readers were almost entirely pro-Trump already.

    But sure let’s have an investigation, let’s investigate why leading Democrats are so inept that they leave their embarrassing conversations like a stack of 100 dollar bills on their front porch. But let’s not be too shocked if someone like Putin decides to pick them up and drop them out of a helicopter. (Which probably wasn’t even the case, but if it was, so what. Shouldn’t we expect our adversaries to do stuff like this?)

They were asking people in the street to tell them how great it was that Obama’s influence or charisma or whatever brought about this wonderful revolution, and the people were all like “what? Obama?

    Although this really ought to seem improbable, there are actors in the US who greatly desire to foment a civil war. That now should be obvious to all sentient beings. Who are these actors? I sure don’t know, but whoever they are, the recently dispossessed are aligned with them. The vernacular for them is “the elite”, although that is likely a misnomer. Personally, I think this attempt at fomenting civil unrest will fail. Is there any demographic sector in the US that really believes this BS about the Russians having hacked our elections? I don’t think so. That said, the anti-Russian propaganda and accusations might just be laying the groundwork for some kind of false flag action. The accusations are just the sort of thing that the old Soviets would have tried, and, further, used as an excuse for governmental action to “save” the country. The accusations against Russia seem very much like the accusations regarding who set the Reichstag fire. We live in dangerous times.

    “as Secretary of State Hillary gave more face-time to foreign supplicants based on their contributions to the Clinton Foundation, and expedited arms deals for especially big givers” –JHK

    Trump has not given a press conference in 145 days, so he cannot be asked about his scandals, his lost court cases, his refusal to release his tax returns, his conflicts of interest with his Trump Organization.

    The Trump Organization has real estate holdings in the United States, golf courses in foreign countries, licensing deals to put the Trump name on buildings in at least 10 countries, and produces Trump-branded products, almost exclusively outside the U.S.

    Yet curiously the attention today continues to look back on the DNC, on Wikileaks, on Hillary and Hillary’s foundation, instead of looking forward.

      About thirty minutes from where I live in West Java the new ‘BoCiMi’ (Bogor-Ciawi-Sukabumi) toll road is progressing rapidly, under the aegis of MNC Toll Roads. It will link Jakarta with a relatively undeveloped area of the island.

      MNC is one of the more robust of the (ethnic Chinese, natch) conglomerates running the Indonesian economy. The first exit gate for the toll road will be near Lido, a lovely hilly resort area with several lakes. Lido has gone bankrupt several times in the past but many attribute that to the poor road access; with the toll road open for thirty million Jakarta residents seeking a quick weekend in natural surroundings, Lido will be great. A hundred million dollar investment in hotels, villa / condos and an amusement park, reportedly involving money from Disney, is going forward.

      Way out here in the wilds of West Java, between live volcanoes, somebody is reportedly going to be building and selling Trump-branded holiday real estate. Amazing.

    My guess is that a surprising amount of BAU will continue. The Goldman Sacks veterans he’s putting in aren’t going to change the TBTF banking system. In fact, they will probably eliminate the minimal regulation that is in place. Congress will make sure the military/industrial/surveillance complex stays in place in spite of president Trump.

    Paul Ryan will get to repeal the ACA for the 53rd time and will get his chance at destroying Medicare. (I hope all the under 55 Trump voters appreciate that when they turn 65 and are dying in the street do to lack of healthcare).

    fortune.com/2016/11/04/voting-machine-hack-watch-video-cylance/

    But the most likely place to do the hack would be in the machine’s source code. Place a “bug” that randomly changed the vote of every 1/100 voter and now you’ve turned a close state from one side to the other.

    There’s a reason why Las Vegas requires source code escrow for gambling machines, but neither the States nor the Feds require source code escrow on voting machines. Fraud. Las Vegas cares more about gambling fraud than we do about voting fraud.

      And here we have an operative of The Establishment underscoring my point that The Establishment, despite some rather transparent feigning, really isn’t interested in pursuing Election Fraud. Take note that it simply will not acknowledge, let alone consider, what Greg Palast has investigated, which is, by the way, an accusation of rampant Minority Voter Suppression. I thought minorities were supposed to be a large part of The Democrats’ base, and yet here’s one of the operatives marginalizing and dismissing the issue. Yeah, they’ve got your back — they’re putting a knife in it over and over again. and Elrond and Moore want to set you up for the next stab in the back.

        Please don’t lump me in with the Democrats — I’m not a liberal, I’m a leftist. If I were a U.S. voter, I would vote Green provided I felt safe doing so; otherwise, I would vote for whichever party or candidate had the best chance to defeat the Republicans (likely Democrat by default).

        And believe me, those on the authentic left (the ones Rahm Emanuel called ‘retards’) are well aware of voter suppression and how it works.

    After the lesson we supposedly learned from the McCarthy era, you’d think that a hundred million bullshit detectors would all be shrieking an alarm at this point but, no – minions of the Deep State have only to say “Russians, boogah boogah!” and most Americans, including a disturbing number of my supposedly-educated friends, buy it hook, line, and sinker. And the liars don’t even have to contrive any evidence that Putin has tampered with our ballots. The mere assertion is enough.

    The Trump Tax Plan

    Two massively winning points, for businesses and families:

    No business of any size, from a Fortune 500 to a mom and pop shop to a freelancer living job to job, will pay more than 15% of their business income in taxes. This lower rate makes corporate inversions unnecessary by making America’s tax rate one of the best in the world.
    4. No family will have to pay the death tax. You earned and saved that money for your family, not the government. You paid taxes on it when you earned it.

    Haters of freedom will cringe at the thought of people keeping what they earn.

        Next would be: if persons – where does the family or the entire clan live?

        If a state actor: friend or foe.

        Only then could an appropriate response be formulated.

        But an overwhelming response – a la Grozny – should not be dismissed as being an overreaction for this.

    Kunstler, yet again, shows that he is a truly fair and balanced voice, and, thus, has the ability to enlighten his readers about the ongoing national suicide. This, despite the fact that he was born, raised, and resides in one of the ‘liberal’ regions of Amerika.

    That being said, what we are obviously witnessing is the acceleration of the social-economic breakdown that everyone with an IQ of 110 has been expected (except those who have drank the cool-aid of the obama-clinton crime syndicates. We are seeing the loss of direction, the loss of an internal ‘moral’ and common sense compass at the individual and group (e.g. NYT, Washpo, ad nauseum); next will come real violence directed toward anyone who can be blamed for our economic downfall by those who get hurt in serial turn.

    Obviously clinton is a criminal, and trump (I voted for neither) is what he is. In the long run, it doesn’t matter. We are going to see the current trump euphoria turn into extreme angst and then anger when it becomes clear that no one, trump included, can make a $20TRILLION + federal reserve debt vanish and keep interest rates down, without causing a bond market (and latter stock market and real estate market) collapse that will make 2008 look like a minor blip.

    A sea change is coming, but not what most expect! All one has to do to see the future is look at Yugoslavia and Venezuela to see amerika in 5 years. Many ‘cultured’ and ‘civilized’ people will simply not make it.

    JHK – “Russia Hacks Election,” was designed by the Deep State players to deviously lead the broadly dim public to think that Russia somehow interfered with the balloting process, which was not possible since voting machines are not hooked up to the internet.

    I agree that Russia likely did not interfere with the actual ballot counting devices; however, disagree that “air gapped” (sans internet connection) computational devices such as the voting machines are not possible to “hack”. Checkout “Stuxnet” the widely disseminated cyber weapon that hacked the “air gapped” Iranian U238/235 enrichment gas centrifuge controllers about 8-10 years ago.

    I have read your blog for a long time, and I love your novels about the possible dystopian future. I have also been tuned in to Paul Craig Roberts, and tended to agree with most of what he wrote.

    But I am beginning to wonder what Cool Aid you guys are drinking. Hillary was a terrible candidate for sure, but looking at Trump’s appointments and outbursts, we may be facing something far worse than a continuation of Obama’s policies.

    Trump and his right-wing nutcase appointees are going to rip the country apart as they privatize, religiousize, and deregulate everything they can get their hands on. And I doubt if Trump will deliver on peaceful coexistence with Russia based on the generals he has appointed. He has already provoked China, and he isn’t even in office yet, so just imagine what he will do when faced with a crisis with Russia.

      I agree. I used to check in here every week for a dose of sanity and for the (mostly) informed comments section. Lately? Not so much. That Hillary Clinton even survived the last 20 years of constant vilification is amazing to me. Personally, I’m glad Richard Mellon Scaife shuffled off this mortal coil prior to her defeat, but it goes without saying that she is a smart woman with a knowledge of the world, while Trump is clearly mentally unstable and has a textbook (DSM) case of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. This is not the person to lead a great nation. Not even close.

      • laceration December 19, 2016 at 4:50 pm #

        oh poor Hillary, she has been vilified! How much blood is on her hands from the wars, regime changes, bombings, drone attacks that she voted for/planned/carried out/was complicit in. Her main function as Secretary of State was the precipitation of arms deals. She doubled and tripled even the war criminal Bush Administration–Quite a nice cut ended up in the Clinton Foundation coffers, but she is not in jail/executed for treason/war crimes/crimes against humanity. piltdownman go to the MSM, that is where belong.

          And ya know what? That probably is where I belong, rather than in this company — where everyone seems so anxious to prove their supposed bona fides or to scratch up some flavorful bit from the web and turn it over in their heads like they’re polishing a worry stone… And, always ready with a snarky putdown or nasty reply.

          Let’s be clear; nearly every President and SoS has been complicit in things we don’t even want to know about. Unlike Jim’s one-time sign-off, it’s not “all good,” it pretty much “all sucks.” Dealing with it is what adults do. Talking about it is what everyone else does.

          And what of the bombings and drone attacks? Do you know which were protecting our government or our soldiers – or you? Sorry, but no, you don’t. You take a snippet of something and turn it into a tirade of disinformation. The US has most certainly done many evil things over the past 238 years, but Clinton is probably no more or less a part of those operations than anyone else has ever been — she just happens to have been set afire by the very real “vast right wing conspiracy” and has had petrol poured on her ever since.

          And don’t get me wrong. I was a Bernie supporter from the start. I never thought she was a great candidate. Yet to live in the real world, we need to make real decisions about what is best for the largest number of people. I see absolutely no way that nest of rapacious billionaires are going to help anyone but themselves…

            As I said in another comment, you too suffer from “Excessive Equivocation”. Harm and aggression to other human beings, war, is not just something that happens. There are specific people who perpetuate it, like the Clintons and the Neocons. They need to be called out, stopped and held accountable. I don’t expect that to happen in the least. Your “vast right wing conspiracy” is only a little drama to manipulate you, where both sides are the same on substantive issues. They only differ hot button-mostly identity-issues to get you hot and bothered. There is no shortage of critique of the Clintons on the Left too. Take a look at counterpunch.org. As for the snarky putdowns and nastiness, you are right. Let me instead say you do belong here and congratulations for being here and challenging the way you think about things.

      You suffer from a very common malady which I have termed “Excessive Equivocation”. Yes Trump certainly will do stupid and terrible things, I am not comfortable with the Goldman cronies appointed, but let’s take stock. Before even assuming the office he has…
      *deposed the Bush crime family
      *deposed the Clinton crime family
      *effectively scuttled onerous trade deals like TPP

      That is already more than any Prez has done in 40 years. He also has the neocons, the deep state and liberals in a petulant tizzy–which means he is doing something right– and may even reset relations with Russia, ditch Obamacare and veer towards peace and non-interventionism if “we don’t get fooled again”.

      I fully expect him to outlive his usefulness, but hopefully he can dish out some comeuppance on his way as we spiral out to the collapse of this irredeemable “system of things” that we live in. You write as if you would expect more than that–unfortunately I don’t think that’s possible.

What do they really know about what is going on in his head? They are still trying to paint him in a bad light. Who the heck is paying them to do this?

        Haven’t they figured out yet that loads of Americans are cynical as all H…ll now … and might be laughing with joy that Russian hackers wanted to help Trump win…

        and therefore somehow help us…

        get our nation back,… from Global oriented toadies that wanted to turn the USA into another version of the E.U. and put their own version of Angela Merkel in our White House so she could ram a huge bunch of very dangerous refugees down our throats?!!! THAT was a good reason alone to stop Hillery Clinton in any position of power again. Ever.

        How very little the media and pollsters ever really knew about what motivated the Trump voters.

        And the voters aren’t finished yet.

        The Democrats that re elected Nancy over the young man from Ohio for house speaker just put the nail in the Democratic party’s coffin.

        They might all just suffer Hillery’s political fate.

        They have no concept of what the American people are willing to suffer to just get rid of them all for not respecting working people.

        We are quite capable of turning bat shit crazy and all nihilistic about just punishing our Tormenters in the Beltway with our crazy votes.

        The Republicans should watch their Greed. And any cronyism.

    In my internets wanderings I ended up at http://billmoyers.com. I haven’t been keeping up with him, but remember him for being a reasonable and critical voice through the years. Now his website is an ostensible mouthpiece of the deep state with utter bullshit like this about Russia and Putin: “a right-wing ethno-nationalist plutocracy” “an attack on our very democracy. It’s an attack on who we are as a people. A foreign government messing around in our elections is, I think, an existential threat to our way of life. To me, and this is to me not an overstatement, this is the political equivalent of 9/11.” The commentariat there is pretty much a zombie mob too.

    Even if this stupidity was true all it did was provide useful voting information exposing the corruption and criminality of Clinton and the democrats. Meanwhile the neocon cabal in the US Gov. surrounded Russia with military bases, destabilized neighboring countries, uses its power as the Reserve Currency to sanction and quite possibly in cahoots w/ Saudi Arabia drove down the price of oil to ruin Russia’s export income.

    I remember the day when the right wingers were the crazy ones. They now seem to be catching on to things while the left is now mostly insane in a scary and alarming sense. I actually feel comforted that the rwingers have all the guns–they seem far more capable of reason and restraint.

      Agree with this completely, including the part about once having respect for Bill Moyers.

      I always thought Moyers was a bit of a stuffed shirt, but he seemed to care.
      Not anymore. Liberals and progressives have gone completely off the rails with this election.
      Ultimately it doesn’t matter where the leaks came from, the veracity of the information has never been contested.

      Private Property is sacred, but it’s not the only sacred thing. Individual endeavor is fantastic, but it must not be against the nation. After all, no one does it all by themselves. It’s not just Obama or Warren who believes that – it’s simple commonsense.

    “The Washington Post reported in 2010 that there were 1,271 government organizations and 1,931 private companies in 10,000 locations in the United States that are working on counterterrorism, homeland security, and intelligence, and that the intelligence community as a whole includes 854,000 people holding top-secret clearances.[2] According to a 2008 study by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, private contractors make up 29% of the workforce in the U.S. intelligence community and account for 49% of their personnel budgets.[3]”

    Speaking of fake news, election hacking and the Russians here’s what I believe based on what I’ve read–hopefully not too fake.

    Colin Powell has stated that Hillary Clinton’s hubris is always her downfall. Well come to find out the Clinton campaign did not campaign in Wisconsin and didn’t even conduct polling in Michigan: Yeah, that’s hubris all right. (Somewhere I read that Bill was urging the campaign to reach out more to rural voters, specifically in the Rust Belt states but to no avail.)

    But, Hillary did heavily campaign in PA, OH, NC and FL and lost by larger margins than she did in WI or MI. Does this suggest that the more voters heard from Hillary, the less appealing she became?

    And speaking of that, HRC had some of the highest ‘untrustworthy’ polling numbers ever. So no, I can’t personally blame the Russians. At the end of the day, as is now very obvious, she was a deeply flawed candidate with a lot of deleterious baggage.

    So flawed in fact, that Vladimir Putin had a personal score to settle with Hillary–this according to Hillary herself. So even if there were electioneering shenanigans going on, they weren’t really to help Trump as much as harm Hillary. This seems plausible to me.

    Hindsight being 20/20, one candidate–Hillary– was annointed in advance and another candidate–Bernie–was a spontaneous uprising bursting from the inside out with an enthusiasm and passion that contrivity never achieves… and near messianic reverence from Democratic Party millennial voters.

    When “The Bern” was finally doused with the cold waters of a calculating, thumb on the scales DNC, so too was the enthusiasm and passion of the left wing of the Democratic Party.

    And now one garners, between the interstices of news real and fake, little snippets that perhaps disgruntled DNC workers or even those affiliated with the Bernie campaign may have dropped a dime on the DNC and Clinton.

      According to Hillary, it is a revenge for Russian Presidential elections of 2012, but in reality the feud between Clintons and Russia goes all the way to early 90s.

      Then President Yeltsin had a clear agreement with President Bush, Sr that Russian Federation gets out in one piece in exchange for dismantling of the Soviet Union and letting Ukraine (and others) go.

      In return, Bush promised not to advance NATO Eastward – there were supposed to be no troops even in Eastern Germany.

      Then Hillary won the Presidency and buried all the agreements and then did her best to crush the Federation into 36 pieces, starting from Chechnya.

      That’s why Yeltsin in 1999 threatened Clinton with Russian Nuclear Triad – unprecedented in history.

    Men Are Jealous of the Love Button. Nothing on Earth has rankled, annoyed and befuddled men more than one exclusively female attribute. All bragging of male superiority is hollow and silly when a certain physical reality is placed on the scales of inherent worth. The world has suffered thousands of years of conflict, armies have moved, Cathedrals have been erected and multitudes denied happiness because one biological quirk has rendered to females a power denied males. Button, Button…Who’s got the button? more

      Correction: You are jealous of women and their anatomy. Most men appreciate women and just want to get with them.

      It’s possible women have a better sexuality, of course. Less bothered by it most of the time, but once aroused, having more capacity and perhaps more feeling. I won’t begrudge them their selective superiorities. Men are better at more things, obviously.

      I know that people like to say that Islam is an Old Testament religion and teaches Muslims to be violent, aggressive, vicious, and and that justifies broad, far reaching statements and general conclusions about Muslims. But if that were true, and if the Koran teaches these things, it wold follow that all Muslims are this way. In fact, that is not true. It is a small minority which teach this to a deranged few who are fueled by constant western meddling in their affairs over oil and strategic advantage over the Russians. If there was no oil in the ME there would be no controversy. But there still might be Russians. Far and away, the majority of Muslims just want to live their lives in peace and be good neighbors. We better start taking responsibility for our own mistakes and evil intentions instead of generalizing and projecting them on a people whose only fault is that they are different.

    On November 8 Trump won in Texas, with 38 electoral votes, but today only 36 electors voted for him. One elector Art Sisneros resigned and Chris Suprun was the only ” faithless elector” who refused to vote for Trump contrary to the State vote.

    Six “faithless electors” refused to vote for Hillary.

    • FincaInTheMountains December 19, 2016 at 6:32 pm #

      In a way, Hillary has won! She managed to convince the electors to vote according to their conscience and not as the State voted that they represent.

    Small business optimism jumps!

    President-elect Donald Trump’s victory in the U.S. elections is a giant leap for small businesses, according to a survey of their owners.
    The November reading of the National Federation of Independent Businesses’ small business optimism index jumped to 98.4 from 94.9 — its sharpest surge since 2009 — with all of the increase in sentiment coming after the U.S. elections held on Nov. 8.
    “This month we bifurcated the data to measure the results before and after the election,” explained Chief Economist Bill Dunkelberg. “The November index was basically unchanged from October’s reading up to the point of the election and then rose dramatically after the results of the election were known.”

They insist that their defeat was due to racism and sexism and xenophobia and ignorance. Idiots talking bullshit to idiots in their idiot echo chamber. I encourage them in this.

      You are certainly right, Volodya–“stupidity is generally rewarded with extinction.” And at this point, the whole earth is in the grip of Mr. Trump’s stupidity. In thrall to the medium of twitter, thousands follows Mr. Trump’s tweets. Climate change, he relates, is a Chinese hoax. Trump’s twitter denies that climate is the “threat multiplier” to our national security that the US military has recognized for 3 decades.

      His twitter denies that the Arctic is melting, that the Himalayas at the top of the world have begun to resemble a snow cone, that giraffes are in danger of extinction, that the biggest fresh water lake in China has dried up.

      Trump’s twitter says it, I believe it, that settles it.

    “Just leave more money in workers’ pockets and this is what happens.” –fodase

    This is a substantive criticism: Since 1988 in the USA the increase in wealth has gone to the top 10%. The US has a terrible wealth gap. Compare to other countries where the lower classes actually have increased their wealth since 1988. (wealth being defined as a person’s net worth, not their annual income, or, wealth = assets ? liabilities)

    Trump has packed his cabinet with billionaires, generals, and ideologues. It remains to be seen how much they really care about the little guy and those who are marginalized. So far, it looks like Trump’s tax policies will benefit Trump more than the average worker.

    I hope to welcome Mr. Trump personally at the Women’s March on Washington, Jan. 21, 2017. Trump’s rhetoric has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us… immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault …

    In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.

    Good luck to everyone. And congratulations to Mr. Trump for being officially elected as president today.

    When I saw Leon Panetta get up and endorse that vile pig Clinton, my suspicions were confirmed. The last minute attempted coup, although not as sordid as the JFK coup, seemed just as obvious. The Pentagon types in the “intelligence” community wanted to install that despicable piece of shit, that corporate whore, that sell out Clinton to carry out their warfare solution to peak oil, diminishing resources, and their dying empire. They knew they could count on this witch to carry out that agenda, which was/is to use violence and military intervention to achieve hegemony over the middle east, where most of the planet’s 50% or so remaining ultimately recoverable oil lays. With Trump, they aren’t so sure he will carry out their agenda. With Clinton, they had their puppet in place. She has not only supported all their oil wars, she laughs, gloats about, and seems to enjoy them. It had not gone unnoticed the increased military presence at sporting events. Bad musicians, wounded vets, tear jerking reunions, jet fly overs, etc. The events were turning into patriotic orgies to condition the public and manufacture consent for their warfare solution. Whether or not Trump will be coerced, forced to jump on their bandwagon or face an assassination attempt remains to be seen, but I was one of the Sanders people that crossed over for Trump. MI went for the orange orangutan. You don’t like it, fuck you. That bitch was a cheerleader for NAFTA, sold us out when she voted for the bankruptcy reform act, and rest assured, would have signed that TPP when it crossed her desk. If all we can get out of this is averting a nuclear war, averting government censorship of the internet (something Clinton and Obama are threatening, I think at the behest of the CIA), and blocking the TPP, I will be happy.

Then, make an arrest of a shifty looking suspect and then bang, bang yet again. And if the deceased president’s brother didn’t get the message, to stay out of politics and stay away from places that people like him don’t belong, then bang bang some more. Bang bang bang until people fall into line. This crew should leave things to the Generals. Yes, the hats give orders and the orders are carried out.

    Well then, Lace, you haven’t been paying enough attention to the Good Times the African-American communitee of Chicago is having this year with them closing in on 700 murders and well over 3,000 shot so far. That is just Chicago-town and does not include the burgeoning numbers of casualties/fatalities in Detroit, Camden, Hartford or Baltimore among the top American murder places.

    And then there are the Yzlamik over-exuberance practitioners.
    Guy in Turkey assassinates the Russian ambassador on TV for some great ratings and a wicked NYTimes front page photo. Here in USSA – San Berdoo, Orlando’s Pulse nightclub massacre, Chattanooga recruiting station…..Ft Bliss and that pos scumbag Maj Nidal Hasan (thought I had forgotten about that nematode didn’t you — seems everyone else, especially the Media has.) So remember the muzzy has guns , lots of them, and loves to use them – especially on infidel Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and anyone else who doesn’t believe in their Allah and Mohammad nutjob show. For further clarification and examples please see ISIS, Taliban, Boko Haram, Syrian civil war, Yemen…..and a half million other Yzlamik shitholes.

    So sorry to burst your bubble Laceration,

    Yet I am also thankful that in the USSA the right-thinking have guns and are also prepared to use them in defense of family, neighborhood, town, and state against all enemies foreign and domestic.

    “Small business optimism jumps!’–Fodase

    Say a small business or sole proprietor languishes in the lower economic realm for years and then suddenly has a breakout year of 100,000 grand in taxable income. Figure about 31,000–16,000 plus 25% after 75,000– of that will vanish to taxes ( and granted, about half of that will be self employment/ medicare, which, is a boomerang benefit later in the life of a worker).

    Many will say, ‘hey 70,000 is a pretty good year after all is said and done. But a small business has no guarantees they will earn that same amount or better from one year to the next depending on a variety of factors. Thus the natural tendency to ‘hoard’ and diminish ‘velocity” due to future uncertainty, not to mention ancillary concerns such as health care and retirement savings etc which is always a real worry/concern for small businesses and the self employed.

    Real optimism will result when small businesses don’t feel so uncertain from one year to the next; when there is a real sense that “prosperity” resides on stable and sure ground.

    Alas, even negative projections of another recession will kick everyone’s ass once again and reinforce a ‘cacooned’ economic dynamic: uncertainty on steroids, IOW. And frankly, I don’t see how austerity policies will create economic confidence especially if one is talking about SS or Medicare cuts

    Alas again. I’m pretty sure most all Americans are rooting for a kick ass economy but I’m also pretty sure most Americans are still somewhat traumatized by the last recession.

    If Trump gets a good jump out of the starting gate economic confidence could really gather some momentum and perhaps people will stop anticipating the other shoe to drop which creates a negative feedback loop.

    It’s time to shut the hell up about The Clintons, The Democrat Party and The Liberal Media. All of that is now dead & gone and it’s just YOU & Donald Trump now. No more “look over there.” You’re Center Stage now. The Spotlight is on YOU & YOUR Great Leader. You can no longer point a finger at some artificial form of opposition because there is no real, organic opposition. YOU own it. It’s for YOU & Donald Trump to destroy, and believe me, YOU & YOUR Great Leader will perform that dubious honor masterfully, no doubt.

    So, tucsonspur, no one really cares about the bygone Clintons & The Obamas & The Democrat Party & The Liberal Media any more. They’re now irrelevant relics. Move on and get busy with Humanity’s Final Act.

    If there can be one shred of positivity that can come of this latest Election Farce, it’s that The Pendulum has finally been smashed, even if it was always just a holographic semblance of a Pendulum.

    You know what I mean, this ridiculous Left/Right, Conservative/Liberal Binary Bind in which The Establishment presents, and reports on, politics. It’s a Pendulum that’s on a cart with wheels that’s traveling down the back half of The Hill of Prosperity so each time the Pendulum swings to and fro, the result is always a diminishment & degradation of Prosperity.

    But now, the Left part of that swing of the Pendulum has been decimated, so, there is no more Pendulum, not even the pretense of such which it’s been for quite some time now.

    Instead, the now defunct Pendulum has been replaced by a Rocket, and that Rocket is headed straight down the back half of The Hill of Prosperity at 20,000 mph. Godspeed has never had greater meaning than it does today. Godspeed, indeed.

    I have to wonder if the people of the Democratic Party are ready, or willing to learn anything from this devastating loss, or if; like three year olds, they will continue to cry “No fair! It’s THEIR FAULT!”

    Here are just a few of the lessons:

    1. Don’t choose a candidate who is a bad politician. No matter how much money that candidate can provide.
    2. If you do choose a candidate who is a bad politician, ensure they do not run a bad campaign – specifically:
    a) don’t insult any voters, ever, even if you really don’t like them.
    b) if there’s a scandal, immediately claim full responsibility, apologize, explain how you will prevent a future recurrence, and move on.
    c) don’t put anything in an email you wouldn’t put on a billboard in Times Square
    d) don’t assume voters who have traditionally voted your party will do so this election
    e) if you have serious health issues, immediately release full details, including diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis.
    f) money helps, but no amount of money guarantees you will be elected.
    g) don’t be complacent
    h) don’t be smug
    i) don’t be vindictive
    j) you aren’t owed elective office because of your sex, age, race, background, or anything else. In fact, life owes you nothing.
    k) the electorate will accept a flawed candidate who is honest. It has great difficulty with a flawed candidate who is dishonest. All humans have flaws, so you’d better be honest!

    President Trump already making economy boom:

    SAN FRANCISCO — The Japanese business mogul Masayoshi Son pledged to President-elect Donald J. Trump nearly two weeks ago that he would invest in the United States and create about 50,000 jobs.
    On Monday, Mr. Son’s conglomerate, SoftBank, took what it described as the first step in fulfilling that commitment.
    By leading a $1.2 billion investment in OneWeb, which makes satellites for internet access, SoftBank said it was continuing to invest in new technology and supporting job creation in the United States. In their announcement, SoftBank and OneWeb said the investment would create nearly 3,000 jobs in the United States over four years.

    GERMANY IN STATE OF WAR, ADMITS MINISTER

    German state minister says: ‘We are in a state of war’
    The interior minister of the German state of Saarland said on Tuesday Germany is in a state of war after a man drove a truck into a crowd at a Berlin Christmas market, killing 12 people and injuring 48, in a suspected terrorist attack.
    “We must say that we are in a state of war, although some people, who always only want to see good, do not want to see this,” the minister, Klaus Bouillon, told German broadcaster SR.

    How nice to see common sense return to the fore. Here you go, insane loony liberals, see the wonders of your compassion.

    A zone for these unassimilable mohammedans will be created poste haste by an international group headed by Mr. Trump, and new movements of refugees will start populating it.

    Then, get ready to see flows of refugees in Europe back to the same area.

    It takes an Alpha Male to undo the manifestly insane policy of mixing tolerant, modern societies with rabidly intolerant, maniac-driven cultures.

      People, especially libertarians, like to lament “the Security State” but the tragic truth is that terrorism is terrible for business/commerce, not to mention, dangerous and deadly to innocent lives everywhere.

      And if terrorism is continually being committed by a certain group, the inevitable reaction will be selective profiling/monitoring of that group. Trump, as I recall, has proposed such a policy (please correct if my recollection is faulty).

      The alternative is the destruction of the economy due to terroristic tactics due to hamstrung political correctness and the inability to act ( I know, a terrible oversimplification; there are treasured constitutional rights in the crosshairs of this struggle.)

      So naturally, the formidable, accomplished businessman–President Elect Trump–proposes policies and solutions–‘get tough and smart on immigration/terrorism’– that seek to preserve, protect and nurture an environment is which business can flourish (and of course, protect innocent lives).

      Most of us will hold our nose while a bottle of metaphorical “Raid” is sprayed on insane and destructive “wasp nests”. A trade off if you will. Because at the end of the day most people treasure the bottom line and their safety–the ability to continue earning a living and paying their bills without the threat of being killed by a despicable religious fanatics.

      And yet, most reasonable people will also conclude that there are no ideal choices to be made in this fight. And so it goes…

          Actually you don’t know me at all. I voted for Reagan, Bush The Elder, GW Bush in 04–didn’t vote in 2000. I have listened to more Limbaugh –and others–than most. Do you recall Charles Adler, the Canadian conservative talk show host? I started listening to him in the “dark days” after Bill Clinton was first elected…he has a great voice and is an immensely talented talk radio voice.

          ( By “dark days” I am invoking the cyclical nature of politics; I have lived through both parties on top and have felt the sting of being on the losing side–even when I supported the GOP.)

          I went south on the GOP when they went south on health care in terms of my personal situation and I now favor D’s because of this single issue. But I could easily swing back into the R column if things–health care issues–work out favorably for the sole proprietor/ self employed burdened with pre existing conditions and who doesn’t want a return to the dark days before Obama when affordable insurance was simply out of the question.

Hillary and what she represented is the cause of the Artery-Clogging Plaque — the poor diet and terrible lifestyle choices that precipitates the inflamation that precipitates the deterioration of the Artery Walls that allows the Artery-Clogging Plaque to take hold and latch on and build up. Yes, Trump’s “victory” may have dislodged the plaque, but now that Dislodged Plaque is heading straight for the brain where it will inevitably entirely clog a smaller, but vitally important, vein and that vein will burst open and we’ll have a Fatal Aneurism.

    Peter Hitchens can’t find any evidence against Russian interference either:

    hitchensblog.mailonsunday.co.uk/2016/12/give-a-dog-a-bad-name-why-is-russia-always-presumed-guilty-.…

    The reaction to Trump’s election is uncannily similar to that of Britain’s liberal know-alls.#

    My guess is that is has little or nothing to do with the ‘Deep State) (US) or the ‘Establishment’) (Britain). I don’t even know if these things exist. I suspect they don’t. I put it down to mass psychology, where the fantasy takes over and facts are invisible.

    • Sean Coleman December 20, 2016 at 12:23 pm #

      Here is what an insider in the British ‘Establishment’ said about its workings:

      hitchensblog.mailonsunday.co.uk/2014/06/amazing-scandal-erupts-nobody-notices.html

      Former senior government advisor, Dominic Cummings, said, ‘MPs have no real knowledge of how to function other than by gimmick and briefings. That’s also how No 10 works. It’s how all of them are incentivised to operate. You get ahead by avoiding cock-ups and coming up with tactical wins, you don’t get ahead by solving very hard problems.’

      He spoke of ‘politicians running around who don’t really know what they are doing all day or what the purpose of their being in power is.’

      ‘Everyone thinks there’s some moment like in a James Bond movie, where you open the door and that’s where the really good people are, but there is no door.’

      Hitchens remarks: ‘There is no door! Those four words are almost literature.’

      That’s the British Establishment. Is the American Deep State any different?

      The Germans? Clémentine Forissier, a Belgian journalist who spent years as a Berlin correspondent, spoke on France Radio about Merkel’s decision to admit hundreds of thousands of ‘refugees’. She had never before seen her make any decision that had not been carefully thought out but this one was (from memory, but I also took a note) ‘rapide, émotionelle et pas rationale’. (I had joined Facebook just in time to witness the amazingly rapid and hysterical campaign for her to do just this.) People argue now that this was a cunning move to enhance German’s work force (or “what. ever.”) but this is just an attempt to rationalize the irrational.

      This isn’t to say that they don’t conspire, just that they aren’t any good at it, or anything else, by the look of things.

      I’d be confident that the campaign to un-elect President Trump is (just as it was to undo Brexit) driven by misguided, irrational and deep emotion on the part of the almost-insane ranks of the politically correct.

        But of course the inner cult loves it even if they don’t know about the Plan. Their indoctrination has lead them to feel that the White Race needs to be abolished.

    Hillary Clinton managed to completely destroy the traditional electoral system of the United States, in violation of all the written and unwritten laws and subordinated to her own goals the establishment of both parties. Which is completely incompatible with the two-party system, but she has achieved this by previously subjugated the Fourth Estate, that is, trampled into the mud the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution in the part where it guarantees the freedom of speech.

    These actions of the first female US presidential candidate from one of the ruling parties were almost successful, but the conjurer was drunk and conjuring was unsuccessful.

    It turned out that the American people are much smarter than I thought about them, and they just stopped listening to the media and start voting for Donald Trump in droves.

    Although democratic media went crazy with the well-orchestrated hysteria caused by the “influence of the KGB chief” on the Presidential election, but looking at the hysteria, I want to say, like Stanislavsky: “I am not buying it!”

    Rather, Hillary Clinton, having unlimited financial resources after a successful trading in foreign policy of the nuclear superpower, pays journalists in hope to move the vote to a later date and / or attempts in the remaining time to create a so-called independent commission of Congress to investigate the “hacking” of servers of Democratic Party on the orders of all-powerful Putin.

    President Trump would have no power over this commission, through which Hillary Clinton can send the President Trump subpoenas and ask “tough questions” after he takes office officially. All this is quite ugly, but fits perfectly into the style of the infamous Wicked Witch of the West aka Bastinda.

    But the most dangerous heritage of Hillary Clinton is that in the 25 years of political correctness and masterly sophistry she leaves us with the English words necessary for understanding of the reality, now lying in ruins or standing on its head.

    But the reality is given to us in sensations, often very unpleasant, and the most unpleasant of these sensations are now linked with the word “Islam”, which through the efforts of Hillary Clinton is REALLY standing on its head. She spent much of her life to achieve that.

      ***************

      Tucson, I held my nose and voted for Hillary Clinton. In retrospect I realize it was a mistake, but at the time I felt like (and still do to some extent) that Hillary might bring us more war, but Trump would bring us war outside our living rooms. I’m glad we have broken the back of of the Clinton-Bush hegemony in Washington. But after seeing some of Trump’s cabinet nominees (Bolton to the State Department — really!!) we may have just welcomed the new boss, “same as the old boss.”

      But for now, I will just hope there are more things Trump will do more good things than bad and pray that the bad ones don’t bring us destruction and suffering.

      I’m not comfortable with a President who tweets his dislike for popular culture and demands apologies. After all, he is the one who expressed disdain for political correctness. For someone who enjoys insulting people and then doubling down he seems to have a thin skin.

    A Book Recommendation

    I highly recommend the book; “An Incomplete Education” by Jones and Wilson…”3684 Things You Should Have Learned But Probably Didn’t”..3rd edition.

    A book of 699 pages, outlining, thousands of topics that we probably skimmed, and immediately forgot, in High School and College (We mark our page with bookmarkers to measure what we lost…yes?).

    The major subjects covered are Art History, World History, Economics, Philosophy, Psychology, Religion, Science, and many others. Each segment in a Subject, and there can be many dozens, are usually encapsulated in a few paragraphs, are to the point, often times humorous, and invariably well written…a joy to read. It is the perfect “bathroom reader”…and can provide months of reading enjoyment…longer or shorter, depending upon your diet….

    I initially found this book at our local library, and was so taken by it that I purchased a copy on Ebay…Hardcover…under $5.00 delivered(This, alone an indictment of our society).

    Disparate topics…the difference between a Landau carriage and a Baruche or Brogham? Schopenhauer vs Kierkegaard? Philosophy Made Simpllstic? Hundreds of sub-topics…great stuff.

    Do yourself a favor.

        The bill itself was introduced by Tim Scott (R – SC) and simply prohibits discrimination against Judaism (and other religions) under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It specifically recognizes the First Amendment and protects speech. No one will be expelled from school for criticizing Judaism or other religions. It is axiomatic that prohibiting discrimination against a minority does not inhibit or repress the majority except insofar as it prohibits discriminatory conduct.

        The website link you posted is for a notorious extreme right wing Nazi and white supremacy website. It promotes that agenda and plays fast and loose with the facts.

    Trump is now the elected President. More Electors abandoned Hillary not Trump. A few hundred people protested here and there – the Dems are completely demoralized. But the Tribal Media is not of course. They are still as powerful as ever.

    Contributions to the Clinton Foundation have fallen off completely. It was never a charity after all but a pay to play slush fund for the Clintons. The Entity is beginning to make noises about running in 2020 or for mayor of New York. Will anyone take this seriously and begin to contribute again?

  108. FincaInTheMountains December 20, 2016 at 10:01 pm #

    By declaring the Salafi fanatics the legal representatives of all Sunni Muslims, Hillary Clinton was well aware that it creates a mortal threat not only to Assad and Syria, but also Russia.

    This was the strategic plan by President Yeltsin in 1999, when he, in response to the threat to turn the Russian North Caucasus into a second Kosovo, called Bill Clinton from Beijing to remind him about the Russian nuclear triad.

    Sunni Sufism is one of Russia’s traditional religions, and Islamists in the Caucasus were destroying it in the first place. This created an existential threat to Russia, and it is not surprising that this idea was later inherited by President Putin, and even became one of Russia’s foreign and domestic policy priorities.

    And when the Russian Muslims declared Russian Orthodox President Caliph and Protector of Islam, it was not an act of fawning.

  109. FincaInTheMountains December 20, 2016 at 10:31 pm #

    Unlike completely demoralized by liberalism Europeans, Americans, who consider themselves Christians, were seriously offended by September 11, 2001. And when Trump during the election campaign, said that radical Islam is an existential threat to the United States, his words like seeds fell on a fertile soil.

    Unfortunately, he said, “Islam” and not “Islamism”, and in the future it can create big problems for the alliance between the United States and Russia in the imminent war against Islamism, as in Russia, Islam is one of the traditional religions, which made a huge contribution to nation-building first of the Golden Horde, and then the Grand Duchy of Moscow and the Russian Empire.

    In the future, this confusion in concepts will play an important role in domestic policy of both the United States and Russia alike, but for now it faded into the background when on the campaign trail Hillary Clinton started screaming that the shoots that grow from the seeds of anger, abundantly watered with the blood of September 11 victims, are contrary to the First amendment to the US Constitution in the part that guarantees the equality of religions and also create problems in its relations with Saudi Arabia, which declared the Islamism its state religion.

    By that assertion she neutralized the harmfulness of her semantic legacy, and not only lost the election, but also laid the ideological foundations of the very militia which is guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution. In addition, a fatal role played the refusal of the State Department to allow the emigration of Christians from the Middle East running from the persecution of Islamic State and Hillary’s persistent desire to bring from Syria 10 thousand Islamists fleeing the “persecution” of Assad, who does not want to meet these people irresistible urge to cut his coreligionists – Alawites – into little bloody pieces.

    Attn Frankiti

    In the face of Trump’s willingness to boldly proclaim without facts or evidence that he would bring the good times back, we [Democrats] offered a tepid gallows logic. Well, those jobs are actually gone for good, we knowingly told them. And we offered a fantastical non-solution. We will retrain you for good jobs! Never mind that these “good jobs” didn’t exist in East Kentucky or Cleveland. And as a final insult, we lectured a struggling people watching their kids die of drug overdoses about their white privilege. Can you blame them for calling bullshit? All Trump could offer was white nationalism as protection against competing with black and brown people. It wasn’t a very compelling case, but it was vastly superior to a candidate who enthusiastically backed NAFTA, seems most at ease in a room of Goldman Sachs bankers and was almost certain to do nothing for these towns other than maybe setting up a local chapter of Rednecks Who Code

    BackRowHeckler posited an idea I have been perseverating on for a couple of days now:

    “Gather up those 12 dead bodies, place them on the doorstep of Burkha Merkel’s residence in Berlin.”

    Great idea. I like the immediacy of it and the raw contact with the dead that she is directly responsible for.

    The question is how can the citizenry of the Western nations make this sort of gruesome public display of the consequences of politicians stupidity or treason really happen?

    And further mastications on the chewy problem of Yzlamik terror — leads me to think even more strongly that all corpses of terrorists should immediately become property of the State – and after autopsy disposed of in a manner that defiles the corpse in the most horrific way in regard to the discernible religion of the terrorist. No returning of any remains to any family. No grave stone , no markers, no memorials. Just defiling (by cremation inside of a swine’s carcass in the case of a jihadi for example ) and then disappearance of the ashes into the eternal abyss of a nuclear waste site.

    And then to add insult to injury and death, just look at that evil bitch Angela Merkel; today at a memorial for the Berlin Christmas Market Massacre that she and her bizarre immigration policies caused. Makes me sick to my stomach.

    We must absolutely make the consequences of terrorism a greater terror to the perpetrators and also to the politicians and government toadies ( yes, those bastards of the Deep State) who cause it.

    I could barely get through Irin Carmon’s article and maybe missed a spot or two, maybe because I felt

    like I was reading something meant for late-teenagers.

    Incidentally, I seem to recall reading something about some famous woman being able to catch a dick

    anytime she wants. Now, certainly the context is different from Trump’s grabbing a pussy, but is it

    really that different?

    From an anarchist’s perspective, or even from a common sense perspective, that kind of power that the

    article talks about is illegitimate and unethical anyway. That kind of power is coercive– IT GRABS

    YOUR MONEY/LABOR in the form of taxes.

    Feminism wanted women to leave the kitchen to do what exactly? Be wage slaves equally with men? They

    wanted The Vote for the leader of a coercive and violence-based system? They wanted to outsource the

    raising of their children to institutions and strangers?

    Well, then it appears that that’s what they got. But the world has still continued to get worse.

    Possibly better to view the world through an anarchist lens, than a feminist one.

    Ishabaka, IMO, no, the Democrats are unwilling to learn. As you point out in your comment, the Democrats simply refuse to acknowledge reality.

    As you say the loss was not their fault, not the fault of good hearted, virtuous, clear minded, rational people like Democrats, who know what’s good and right and don’t economize on telling us.

    I’ve read too many articles and opinion pieces that tell me that, to the Hillary-ites, the loss was simply the result of deep-seated racism, sexism, Islamophobia, xenophobia, homophobia, ignorance and, especially, stupidity of people that voted Republican.

    Democrats, and progressives in general, are expert dog-whistlers so you don’t see all of these pejoratives stated this explicitly. Instead you see “white”, “older”, “rural”, ‘uneducated”, “low-information” and stuff like that. You know what I mean, you’ve seen it too.

    What strikes me is the class bigotry, particularly as expressed by the term “un-educated” in the progressive lexicon. What does it mean? As the Archdruid sez it’s “my mom and dad could afford to send me to college and yours couldn’t”. So you’re a gang of fat, tattooed, dumb-ass rednecks that hate black people. End of discussion.

    The Democrats are so deafened and blinded by their echo-chamber narrative that they can’t see what’s clearly under their nose. One is the assimilationist machine that is the United States. No matter that the Democrats would like to hive people off by race and ethnic identity, according to what I’ve read, a majority of Hispanics are now “English dominant” and increasingly identify as “white”.

    So the Democrat strategy of separating out Hispanics as a distinct demographic appears to be doomed. The years pass, the young ‘uns grow up and they don’t adhere to the oldsters’ ethnic particularities and chauvinisms, especially speaking Spanish and marrying within the tribe. They do what they figure they have to do and that includes discarding Spanish, the lingo of the old country, and speaking English instead, the language of the new. And, lo and behold, in the fullness of time, they become “American”.

    Blacks have a nastier history in the United States so the assimilationist process for them is slower. Slower but inexorable there too.

    For the Democrats, appealing to racial animosities and ethnic grievance and endlessly talking about sexual preference is a loser. This ought to be obvious. Across the political spectrum the Democrats are on the decline. The sooner they climb out of their coastal bubbles the better. But you probably know in your bones that they they won’t.

    There’s a lot of lessons in this election, including the ones you listed in your post. But forget it, the Democrats don’t listen, no sir, they think they’re smarter than you and me.

    • Janos Skorenzy December 21, 2016 at 3:19 pm #

      Conservatives like you are the near and deep Enemy, the Enemy within. What you are proposing is Jefferson’s nightmare: that Whites should be mixed with lower races and their identity – and therefore culture – lost forever.

      Culture is upstream of Politics. And Race is upstream of Culture.

      • Elrond Hubbard December 22, 2016 at 12:39 pm #

        One need look no further to see that Janos is to western culture what murderous jihadi fanatics are to Islamic culture. It’s not only that Janos’ attitude toward women is, with suitable cultural translation, much the same as Saudi Wahhabis who enforce purdah, the veil and other forms of repression and extreme subjugation of women; but his language of near and far enemies comes straight from Osama bin Laden’s mouth as well.

        I for one find nothing to disagree with in volodya‘s characterization of the Democrats and their contempt for the working class. This has been a very clarifying election in many ways. Overt racism is back with a vengeance, with Trump as the chief beneficiary. Bernie Sanders offered the Democrats the opportunity to win by offering real representation to people who work for their daily bread, and into the bargain split the white-nationalist/racist voting bloc. Instead racists are united under Trump’s banner and people with enough of a conscience to oppose them are now realigning across the gap (see, for example, the rapprochement between Samantha Bee and Glenn Beck of all people).

    So, what did the Russians dig out from the cellars of Aleppo?

    Doctors know that there are viruses, which can’t be detected directly in the blood, but they leave antibodies – a trail that let them to be discovered.

    Russian Special Forces dug in the basements of Aleppo a whole company of the officers of very democratic countries, which shouts to the whole world that they are walking different streets with the terrorists. But as you know, shit happens, and our SpecNaz found a bunch of advisers from various NATO countries and the Arab world, sitting in a basement together with Al Qaeda and carrying pretty high ranks.

    Russia has not yet officially said anything. There are no bodies. But the Israelis have already shown the antibodies and cried hysterically that their people are not there and can not be, and if they can, it is not their people who have no relationship to Israel, and everything is fake and disinformation.

    ACCORDING to the leaks from the difficult negotiations …

    “What will happen now?”

    Russian makes a brick face, scratched his turnip and say something like:

    “Who the hell knows what will happen. We should first do a head count and talk a little”

    “But you’re not going to present them to the world?” – Nervously ask the “partners”.

    “Why?” – Russians genuinely do not understand

    “Well, of course … You know … There may be unintended consequences …”

    “What kind?” – Russians genuinely surprised

    “Well, of course … Look, name your price, and let’s talk, finally, as civilized people …”

    “With whom?” – Russians still do not understand

    “Oh, stop, it! We are civilized people …”

    “Who?” – Russians still do not get it

    “What do you mean, who? “?” – Wonder “partners”.

    “Who are civilized people?” – Russians still do not understand

    “Well, you know, it goes beyond all boundaries! You can not be so stubborn! In the end, these proposals are not made every day!”

    “Do you have any proposals?” – Russians ask

    “I do not understand who are the Jews here, we or you – declares the ambassador of Israel – You’re bargaining so hard, even I admire!

    “Listen, Herr Lane, – appeals the German – we are building together “Nord Stream – 2 “, we’re friends …”

    “You tell ’em that you took Berlin together” – quipped the French

    “People, we are losing time” – the US ambassador said – “Let’s talk with Putin..”

    “Well, Abe here too recently tried talking with Putin about the Kuril Islands. Now he is not allowed in Japan.”

    “Who? Putin?” – American did not understand.

    “ABE!” – Everybody cries in unison

      As far as allowing immigrants in, I agree with you. We have enough people here. As far as Germany goes, I’ll leave that up to them, it’s their country. Myself, I think that it’s foolish to allow so many muslims in. They have fucked up their own countries so badly that they have to leave them. It’s usually the second generation of muslims that raise hell in Europe. They are looked down on, and are not capable of blending in with Europeans. They become disaffected and turn to radical Islam. Without some kind of solution to that problem, letting more of them in is foolish. It will be the same thing over and over. Lets face it, most of the world except Europe & America is a shithole, and the refugees and immigrants will never stop coming. They can’t run their own countries decently, and It’s almost too late to do anything about it as it is. It’s the only thing I agree with Trump on. Other than that, I think he is a buffoon and will cause huge problems. I’d say more, but if you’re like me, you just scroll over the long winded posts.

And in the European Yzlamik case, it will go as far as necessary to correct the demonic importation of the Mohammedans.

      It will also mean that a person shall arise to cleanse great Europa from the plague that the very evil bitch, Angela Merkel (TM,) and her co-conspirators in the E.U. have unleashed.

      The cleaner-upper of the Yzlamik mess will necessarily have the skills and mettle of the likes of Hitler, Stalin , Mao, or Genghis Khan.

      Wait for it – it IS coming.

    Let the dummy, insane democrats stew in their electoral juices for another 15 years if that’s what it takes for them to come back to sanity.

    once they do, i might even vote for them.

    the old democrat party, the one JHK can never quite believe has morphed into the ghastly “gender-fluid” monstrosity we currently see, was a great institution.

    now it’s nothing less than a frankensteinian mutant that most folks find repulsive

    On the eve of the Electoral College vote, President Obama reminded Americans of the “Federalist Papers” by Alexander Hamilton, in which the Founding Father of American democracy in 1788 wrote that the Electoral College was created so that the elections can defeat an agent of a foreign state, and the electors would stop such an agent.

    But in 2016 the electors under the influence of this speech clearly remembered the Clinton Foundation and the billions of dollars of donations into it from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Germany.

    Apparently, they have decided that it is Hillary who is an agent of another state or even three states, and decided not to correct the results of the vote.

    The suspect in the German terror strike was a Tunisian who had failed to gain asylum. They had “been trying” to get rid of him for awhile now because they were afraid he’d do something like this.

    Trying? What was stopping them? That would be a long list I’ll warrant. I can only go back to what Mumford said Burkhardt said about the rise of the “Terrible Simplifiers”. Look, certain things MUST be done and other things MUST NOT be done. Laws and procedures that get in the way of these two sets of imperatives must be abolished. What if you can’t? What if the opposition is too powerful? Then come the Simplifiers who will deal with such people who support such evil laws and procedures. Flips is one. Trump is another. The outgoing Governor of North Carolina is another.

    Yes, they will do terrible things, some of which shouldn’t be done. Good people will get hurt, even innocent people. You should have thought about that before you deviated from the Path of Righteousness and installed scum to rule you.

        The U.N. is all three (clueless/crazy/evil) plus completely corrupt and impotent.

        Talk about a complete waste of air (not to mention the prime real estate that Mike Bloomberg would love to both acquire, and maybe become the General Secretary of to boot, and show that mean Donald J. Trump just who has a bigger schwanz.)

        I am hoping that the same Donald J. Trump, once president, and at the U.N. for the requisite maiden speech before the General Assembly, tells them the same thing he has said to NATO: pay your share or we are leaving/kicking you out. That would get all those parasitic ambassadorial and consular types, as well as the hordes of bureaucrats, to literally shit their britches.

        Then the coup de grace would be to have the entire U.N. kit-and-kaboodle to undergo forced relocation out of the USA, to some fabulous garden spot – like the Congo, Bangladesh or Haiti – places that could use the giant cash cow and the jobs that go with the supporting of the organism.

        That plan would be a win-win-win.

          “The globalists are in the process of running a problem / reaction / SOLUTION scam on us, not a problem / reaction / PROBLEM scam.

          This means that when we reach the end result of this transition process, the NWO will look like the SOLUTION to all our problems, not another PROBLEM (such as a dark, scary fascist regime) we need to overcome. It will appear as though the corrupt have been defeated, World War 3 has been stopped, all regional conflicts have been resolved, biowarfare against the population has been halted, poverty has been alleviated, debt money has been abolished, secrets have been revealed, and so on and so forth. And the masses, after having been force-fed negativity and conditioned to expect a scary NWO for so long, are expected to be so overcome with joy that they’ll willingly embrace the New Order.

          That’s how a problem / reaction / solution scam works when you’re using it to create a New Order for the entire planet: 1) you intentionally create an overwhelming number of terrible problems, 2) you make sure the public is fully aware of all those problems (by carpet-bombing their consciousness with mainstream and alternative media coverage of all the ills in the world), then 3) you present them with the solution to all their problems (the NWO). In that final phase, you don’t present them with something ugly and scary; you give them something attractive and inviting. And once they have accepted it and come to depend on it, you start tightening the screws again.”

      Janos is really serious about his pro-murder position.

      “In Davao I used to do it personally. Just to show to the guys [police officers] that if I can do it, why can’t you,” he was quoted as saying by AFP, talking of his two decades as mayor of the southern city of 1.5 million people.

      “And I’d go around in Davao with a motorcycle, with a big bike around, and I would just patrol the streets, looking for trouble also.

      “I was really looking for a confrontation so I could kill.”

The people who claim that the Clintons murdered Vince Foster could only wish for such an open and shutcase. But in Janosland, right and wrong aren’t about laws or principles, they’re about power. That is savagery.

      Paraphrasing Joseph Conrad, we are accustomed to look upon the shackled form of a conquered monster; but here, in Trump’s America, you can see the thing monstrous and free. To every American reading this: this is what your country is turning into as well, before the world’s eyes.

    In Greenville, MS, the guy who burned the black church and crudely painted ‘TRUMP’ on the wall, was black himself, and a member of the congregation. Last week in Brooklyn, the teenage Muslim girl who claimed she was attacked by ‘4 white men’ (are there 4 white men left in Brooklyn?) admits she made up the story because she was out after curfew … I’m starting to think this spate of ‘Hate Crime Attacks’ is mostly made up, provocations designed to discredit President Trump as a ‘hater’ and racist, and play victim.

    Tale of Wandering – The Flight (with English Subtitles)

  128. FincaInTheMountains December 22, 2016 at 1:12 pm #

    Hillary Clinton lost the elections completely exactly eighteen years after her husband and part-time US President Bill Clinton on December 19, 1998 was impeached by the US Congress. And in 2016, Donald Trump, officially becoming US President-elect, first of all expressed his condolences to President Putin and all citizens of Russia in connection with the murder of the Russian ambassador in Turkey. The most symbolic in this story is that on this day, Putin was to attend the performance of the Maly Theater in Moscow “Woe from Wit,” whose author, a Russian diplomat Griboyedov was killed in Persia during the massacre, which was staged by the religious fanatics in the Russian embassy in Tehran in 1829.

    In the organization of the massacre in the Russian embassy was indirectly involved British military secretary Viscount Palmerston, whose political reincarnation Hillary Clinton is.

    Now she is ready to do anything to complicate Putin’s relationship with Trump and the removal from office of the “Manchurian candidate” and Viscount Palmerston started his intrigue in Tehran, not only for England to score some points in the Big Game, but to overthrow the British foreign Secretary Earl of Aberdeen, who was for the improvement of relations between England and Russia.

    Like Hillary, hereditary Tory Palmerston became the leader of the Whigs, which Democratic Party of the US is a direct descendant of, and the Foreign Minister of Great Britain a year after the death of Griboyedov.

    After replacing Earl of Aberdeen he, like Hillary, did not get tired to organize color revolutions all over the Europe – the European Spring of 1848 – and the support by the British Intelligence Service of Islamism in Riyadh in the Second Saudi State, was, of course, his handiwork.

    And two Opium Wars in China and the Crimean War with Russia complete the resemblance, especially if you remember Hillary Clinton’s actions with respect to these countries as US Secretary of State.

    And here’s a new Palmerston, in spite of unlimited financial resources and bought Media loses the election in the United States. And when on the day of the final vote the Russian ambassador in Turkey was killed, the American people represented by the Electoral College and the newly elected president showed that they no longer consider Russia an enemy by default and any politician acting for friendship with Russia, a traitor. But those who killed US Ambassador in Benghazi and the Russian Ambassador in Ankara they do.

    And when the puzzle of coincidences surrounding these events suddenly develops into a single picture, somehow inevitably comes to mind that whatever Clinton propaganda accuses omnipotent Vladimir Putin of, including appointing American presidents, he was not a force majeure that disrupted the election campaign of the Wicked Witch of the West.

    Although Hillary Clinton is really “wickedly smart” (in the words of Barack Obama), against that force she is powerless, no matter what the Western Black Project invests in her.

    And no matter what surprises she has prepared for all of us for the Christmas, New Year, or the inauguration of Donald Trump, her evil plans will inevitably fail.

    “Of Mice and Men”

    This is a message to Cold–who believes in science.

    It is interesting that Trump’s pick of Mick Mulvaney for Office of Management and Budget is so against federal funding for scientific research, particularly for the ZIKA Virus when recent findings are that:

    ZIKA VIRUS INFECTION DAMAGES TESTES IN MICE
    NATURE 540 (438-442) 15 December 2016

    The suggestion is that ZIKA may indeed shrink human testicles as well:
    “The extent to which these observations in mice translate to human beings is unclear, but longitudinal studies of sperm function and viability in ZIKAV-infected humans seems warranted.”

    On a personal note , off-topic –

    @ Janos ; More than once you have mentioned , The man in the high Tower ” ( or whatever it is called. )

    I have never read it —

    — Because I did read Vonnegut’s , “Mother Night ” . While Vonnegut did serve time in a German POW camp , he never, apparently, studied National Socialism or its history .
    So, right off the bat, an American expatriate secret agent masquerading as a convinced National Socialist is completely unbelievable , and so ruins the story, for someone who has studied the NSDAP their entire life.

    most such examples I have seen are either completely unbelievable because the writer can never really put themselves in the shoes of a National Socialist , but only ever see them as a two-dimensional other .
    Or, the product offered up is like unto the right-wing caricature of conservatism that passes usually for conservatism in America ; seemingly designed by testosterone-driven 10-year-olds for testosterone-driven 10-year-olds , based on something they saw in a comic book one time .

    Anyway, I’ve been working on a series of posters / advertisements based on the theme of a Third Reich that won WW II , and based on the idea that nothing so corrupts, or is so conducive to equivocation , than success , and nothing so obscures historical detail like the passage of time, and nothing is so conducive to spin-doctoring than where the winners have the privilege of re-writing history.

    It’s 1975 – 1980 , the Third Reich is now called The Cosmopolitan Reich , and , as I said, it’s a series of posters / advertisements from that world.

    Too bad this place doesn’t have a pm function.

    ………On the other hand , you might not like a tri-racial Mariah Carey as a poster girl for a NSDAP – inspired Pax Europa.

    Or a recruiting poster for a Shia Islamic SS division called Hezbollah .

    Or an American poster touting German -American peace and détente , and featuring Carly Simon.
    ( A liberal Jew would never turn Nazi apologist ? Why not ? To this day they gloss over or explain away the Bolsheviks extermination of non-whites , among that number being Jews. The liberal anti-Vietnam war movement ; have they ever stressed the number of South Vietnamese given over to slaughter for their peace ? )

      I’ve never read it either, finding Phillip K Dick unreadable. But he had great ideas, and I was referring to the Amazon series based on the book. You might like it: the director is Ridley Scott and it is visually stunning as was his Blade Runner – based on Dick’s “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.”

      Check out a trailer.

      youtube.com/watch?v=hzz_6dmv03I

      Didn’t know the Vonnegut was a prisoner. I’ll have to check that out sometime. Your best intro to National Socialism would be from a Cat Lady named Savitri Devi, also called “Hitler’s Daughter”. She combined mysticism, a love of India, Cats, and the White Race and found it all summed up in National Socialism, and that all summed up in the person of Adolph Hitler. Her major work, “The Lightening and the Sun” is a tour de force.

      Our own Conservatism is coming down from Edmund Burke – and is basically the Fascism of the Anglo-Saxon peoples. Lovecraft and others adapted this for America. Add in Race (as one really should) and voila, you have the recipe for National Socialism. We are still evolving a unique American National Socialism. Why not get in on the ground floor and make a contribution? Mars needs women!

  135. KesaAnna December 23, 2016 at 3:00 am #

    My contribution would be ;

    — Hitler lost the war in 1934 when he screwed over his own friends for the sake of the Industrialists , the aristocrats, and those ladder-climbing opportunists who never would have stood on street corners on their days off selling the Volkischer Beobachter , when the party was nothing.

    — It is one thing to say, ” Life is struggle.” It is another thing entirely to deify military and police power.
    That can only end one way ; Badly.

    — Race is your thing ? A Pax Europa would destroy that as surely as it destroyed Rome. A German Reich is your thing ? Well, the Prussian’s always were a bunch of assholes.
    Bismarck’s Reich could only end the way that it did.
    Look instead to the Holy Roman Empire of the German People.

    — That Great National Socialist thinker , The Ayatollah Khomeini ( lol ) was right about one thing ; Church power second to the secular power is wrong in so many ways, and right from the start, that I’m not even gonna bother to write the huge tome to explain why.

    — American National Socialism ? Already an accomplished fact. It could be summed up in the words , SCREW THE NATIVES AND CALL IT PATRIOTISM.
    As true today as it was in 1830 . ( see Indian Removal Act. )

    • Janos Skorenzy December 23, 2016 at 2:19 pm #

      No, you’re confusing National Socialism with Marxist Socialism. He didn’t screw over the German People – screwing the German Industrialists and Aristocrats would have been screwing the German People. The Body needs its stomach and head, right? You just want workers or arms? Arms don’t make a body politic or nation.

      You are failing to see life Organically. The Right, the Real Right, were and are the Real Conservationists and Ecologists. They didn’t abstract man out of the equation as you are doing.

      Yes, we conquered America and took it away from the Natives. That is the essence of Patriotism. The Indians weren’t the first Americans – they were just living here. Blood is the life, Kesa, not Geography, as important as that is too.

      Read the Martian Chronicles. The Father blows up the rocket ship. His family is there to stay. One of his kids asks to see some Martians. He tell him to look in the water at his own reflection.

      Remember, we are Devotees of what Dylan Thomas called “The Force which through the green fuse drives the flower.” The Life Force. Vril. Prana. Chi. Wakan. Your anger against Life is palpable. Yes, it’s not a nice world. What you’re seeking can only be find beyond the Earth. It won’t be here until Christ returns and rolls up history or His story. In the meantime, get thee to a nunnery since you don’t want to be a breeder of monsters.

      If you wish to stay, read the Wisdom of Hell by Blake. The Lust of the Goat is the Glory of God, Kesa. What is your fem rage but rags next to that? You may be a replicant. You can only hope some Deckard will want to buy you.

          May be a replicant? I misspoke. I know not may be. She is – a replicant of Eve. And what is the nature of Fallen Women? Dissatisfaction. With everything. Blade Runner was one of the most beautiful movies ever made. Deck turns the replicant into a human being with his love, yet good ol’ Keesh sees that as buying a slave at Walmart. Likewise, Roy Batty transcends his rage and lets Deck live. He releases the pigeon, symbolizing the flight of his soul to the higher realms. But Kesa thinks that Hitler betrayed the German Nation because he didn’t try and make every one the same, kill the Aristocrats, and rob the Industrialists.

          Roy Batty symbolizes the Overman the Nazis where trying to create. The Tyrell Corporation is simply the Anglo Elite’s botched attempt in the same direction. By accepting the limits they put into his program (short life), Roy transcends everything in his final moments.

      It was sad and dismal. And brilliant.

      Yeah, she was a slave. But I don’t know that Deckard “bought” her. He was supposed to gun her down because she was a runaway but ran off with her instead. So having said that, there’s no way Rachel would survive without Deckard’s protection. As Deckard said, he wouldn’t go after her, but someone would. So she’s stuck with Deckard.

      And having said THAT, it’s not clear to me that there’s a lot of stomach for killing these “replicants” ie de-facto humans. Gaff, Deckard’s police colleague, knew her whereabouts, left a small origami token to let Deckard know, and let the two of them alone.

      Easy to see how Deckard became a piss-tank.

    Nikita Khrushchev was chemically pure representative of Western Black Project in Russia

    Joseph Stalin, unlike Lenin, did not belong to any of the Western Colored Projects because these projects are purely Western phenomenon, and of course Stalin was specifically Russian phenomenon and all of his advantages and disadvantages in the context of Western Projects just do not make sense.

    And the most important task of de-Stalinization is de-Khrushchevization as the growing popularity of Stalin in our days Russia is due to the fact that Stalin was frankly slandered by Nikita Khrushchev, who himself was one of the most terrible and active murderers of the Stalin era, who had attributed to Stalin many of his own crimes, and de-Stalinizators must recognize his crimes before accusing Stalin.

    And until they do not, they have no right to talk about the search for historical truth.

    That’s when they recognize the role of Nikita Khrushchev in Moscow trials, repressions in the Army in Ukraine on the eve of the war, the blame for the loss of frontier battles and the Kiev disaster, for the Kharkov offensive operation, which resulted in the troops fleeing all the way to Stalingrad, for the destruction of the Orthodox Church after the war, for concealing the participation of Ukrainian nationalists in the genocide of Katyn and Babi Yar, for slandering the Crimean Tatars, and for the case of “Doctor’s Plot” and State anti-Semitism, expressed in particular in the Soviet Union breaking relations with Israel, that’s when it will be possible to discuss Stalin’s guilt in these events.

    Hey Vlad, yes, Vonnegut was a German POW. What’s more, he was in Dresden in March, 1945 during the firebombing of that city.

    For anybody interested, check out the biography of Frederick Russell Burnham (1861-1947). Its an unbelievable story.

      You and your literary hero’s.
      Were they mostly leftists?

      Oh yeah, that makes sense. I did read the one about that. Billy Pilgrim became unstuck in time.

      Yet, you still defend that Allied Atrocity. He condemned it. There were many Allied POW’s in the city, Americans among them if German lives mean nothing to you.

    Putin: Russian Federation is stronger than any potential aggressor.

    Vladimir Putin: Regarding the US President-elect, Mr Trump, there is nothing new here. On the campaign trail he talked about the need to strengthen the US nuclear capability and armed forces. So there is nothing unusual here.

    Honestly, I was quite surprised by statements coming from other official representatives of the current administration, who for some reason started to argue that the United States has the most powerful army in the world. But nobody suggested otherwise.

    If you listened carefully to what I said yesterday, I talked about strengthening the nuclear triad and in conclusion said that the Russian Federation was stronger than any potential – and this is key – aggressor. This is a very important point, and not an incidental one.

    What does it mean to be an aggressor? An aggressor is someone who can attack the Russian Federation. We are stronger than any potential aggressor. I have no problem repeating it.

    I also said why we are stronger. This has to do with the effort to modernise the Russian Armed Forces, as well as the history and geography of our country, and the current state of Russian society. There are a whole host of reasons, not least the effort to modernise the Armed Forces, including both conventional weapons and the nuclear triad.

    This statement not only break through the information blockade around Russia, but also produced a bombshell, coinciding with the statement by President-elect Trump about his determination to modernize US nuclear forces, which indirectly confirms the veracity of the statements by President of Russia.
