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.

I’m obliged to file this blog before Robert Mueller’s office releases the name of the first winner in the Russian Election Meddling tribunal indictment lottery. Most of the betting is on Paul Manafort, the Swamp-creature-fixer-lobbyist-grifter who spent his summer vacation of 2016 managing Donald Trump’s election campaign.

Before that unfortunate summer internship, Manafort was just a shadier-than-average influence-peddler. It happened that many of his clients were bigshots in foreign lands — Mobuto Sese Seko (Congo), Jonas Savimbi (Angola), and Ferdinand Marcos (Philippines), as well as interests in Equatorial Guinea, Kenya, the Dominican Republic, Pakistan, Nigeria, Ukraine, and other world beauty spots. Also, most notably, Russia where the wicked Mr. Putin dwells and incessantly plots evil against our shining city of a republic.

Over the years, Manafort took large sums of money to the DC laundry room and then distributed bales of it around town to other lobbyist subcontractors, but he left quite a trail. And he overlooked the requirement to register as an agent for foreign interests. So, indicting him looks like a no-brainer. An entry-level US Attorney could, figuratively speaking, hitch him up to the rear bumper of a Chevy Yukon and drag him over five miles of broken Coke bottles.

If I am right, his indictment will provoke a five-column headline in The New York Times, Don Lemon will have a multiple orgasm on CNN tonight, and by Halloween the whole Manafort matter will be as forgotten as Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the Las Vegas Country Music Massacre. That’s how we roll in Attention Deficit Nation. I suppose Mueller’s team next will want to charge fired National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn for failing to register as a foreign agent prior to a having conversation with the Russian ambassador — but mightn’t it be a little absurd to outlaw dialogue between incoming White House officials and foreign ambassadors who, after all, are here to have conversations with our people? That’ll be an interesting precedent. Why would other countries even bother to send an ambassador here if that’s our policy?

There’s an outside chance, of course — outside, say as far away as the planet Mars — that Mr. Mueller will just flop his whole hand on the table and indict President Trump. Wouldn’t that be a jolt? And it would instantly prompt a constitutional crisis, so my money says ain’t gonna happen.

It’s hard to see where it goes from there. The standard plot-line is to net these smaller fish and use them as bait to harpoon the Big White Whale. Give them immunity and let them sing their hearts out to avoid getting sent to ping-pong camp in the Poconos for a five-year stretch. Or else these two schnooks go bankrupt paying hotshot DC lawyers to get them off the hook. Does Mueller go after Donny Junior for having a conversation with a Russian lawyer? Or son-in-law Jared Kushner for flying to Russia and having meetings with Russians? Hey, does anyone remember that A) We’re not at war with Russia, and B) the soviet regime there folded up twenty-five years ago?

The casual observer can’t avoid dragging Hillary into this. It appears that, among other things, the Clinton Foundation received over a $100 million in “charitable donations” from various Russian companies and individuals over the years. Gosh, they’re a big-hearted people! Maybe it’s all the vodka they guzzle. No doubt, the newly-converted Russian capitalists were yearning to support “impact entrepreneurs” who are creating “new enterprises to generate both social impact and financial returns” by addressing market gaps in developing countries, or to “strengthen the capacity of people in the United States and throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence” — as the Clinton Foundation described their activities.

More likely they wanted to grease their access to the sure-thing It’s-My-Turn Madam President. Except then she went and lost the election… all because of Russian meddling.

    Hey, does anyone remember that A) We’re not at war with Russia, and B) the soviet regime there folded up twenty-five years ago?

    • robert magill October 30, 2017 at 9:16 am #

      That sounds familiar.

    • SteveO October 30, 2017 at 9:39 am #

      The average age of a US senator is 60, the average age of a congress critter is 57. The cold war period is “the good old days” to these people. Plus, the military/industrial complex was really riding the gravy train in the late cold war era.

      There’s a big chuck of these “law makers”, like John McCain and Lindsey Graham who can’t get through the day without missing the simple moral clarity of “us vs. them”.

      • DrTomSchmidt October 30, 2017 at 9:46 am #

        That about explains it. Like the drunk looking for his Car keys in the light instead of where he dropped them…

        • Epicur October 30, 2017 at 9:51 am #

          Or like a trucker who thinks he can haul more chickens if he stops every couple of miles and beats on the side of the trailer so the chickens get excited and flap their wings.

      • Walter B October 30, 2017 at 9:55 am #

        It never seemed right to me to allow so many creatures that have so little future left in them to be allowed to set courses that the rest of us will be forced to take because of their decrepitude. And then there is their desperation to steal more and more value from the rest of us while they still are not dead yet as well. It is a travesty IMHO. I saw a snippet recently about medications being sent to many members of the Congress and Senate for Alzheimer’s. Wow, isn’t that special. Inspires something within but certainly not hope.

        • TiredOfTheTreadmill October 30, 2017 at 11:26 am #

          You make a good point. I believe the old timers running things is a carryover from earlier cultures in which the elders were viewed as knowledgeable stewards looking out for the future of their tribe. In our current “I got mine, screw you” culture, it has become painfully obvious that wisdom and age have no correlation. Would anyone seek wisdom from Trump in any matter except how screw someone over for a buck?

          Also, part of the reason for the ineptitude in congress is the publics’ willingness to vote in the incumbent time and again. After watching this for decades now, I have concluded the mob usually gets the government it deserves and us outsiders get dragged along. For true outsiders and the painfully obvious truths they bring to the table are not welcomed.

        • K-Dog October 30, 2017 at 12:32 pm #

          A) We’re not at war with Russia, and B) the soviet regime there folded up twenty-five years ago and C)Dimitry Orlov is still an ego best avoided.

          Excusing old farts in congress for being stuck in the cold war is no excuse. There are plenty of people just as old who manage with reality just fine. The ugly side of human nature exists in all age groups and people of any age can be stuck on themselves.

          My advice is to rebel against ignorance and stupidity no matter who puts it in your face. Even old entitled bitches!

          • outsider October 30, 2017 at 4:57 pm #

            @K-Dog,

            A) Don’t tell Morgan Freeman and Rob Reiner we’re not at war with Russia, B) They think the Soviet regime just changed faces. You can’t trust those Russkies, and C) What do you have against Orlov?

          • SteveO October 31, 2017 at 7:04 am #

            There at lot of old entitled bitches in Washington DC that need to go to the ashcan of history to be with their beloved cold war.

            Same with the Castro haters in south Florida.

    • seawolf77 October 30, 2017 at 10:43 am #

      Russia was at the heart of the USSR. The cold war never ended and will never end.

      • Ol' Scratch October 30, 2017 at 10:50 am #

        It will when the US government collapses and/or is formally dissolved. Although it’ll almost certainly go hot very briefly just before that.

        • Elrond Hubbard October 30, 2017 at 11:10 am #

          If the cold war didn’t end when the former Soviet régime collapsed, why would it end if/when the current U.S. one does? Power relationships are transitory, but interests are permanent. The two are likely to always remain distinct centers of power and thus rivals for various spoils.

          • Ol' Scratch October 30, 2017 at 11:43 am #

            If the US dissolves into civil war and breaks up I don’t see whatever remains exercising much power. US national interests really come down to one thing – money and the access to cheap energy it buys – and when the dollar loses it’s reserve currency status, that will be the end of all that. All the current US military power is deeply financed and now mostly made up of high tech, purposely obsolete show junk. A legitimate shooting war with a legitimate adversary will pop the illusion of American superiority once and for all.

          • Ol' Scratch October 30, 2017 at 11:45 am #

            Additionally, Russia still had deep, sustaining, and binding cultural ties to fall back on when the USSR collapsed. The US? Calls for a breakup are already widely heard throughout the country, and things haven’t even got interesting yet.

          • seawolf77 October 30, 2017 at 11:50 am #

            F22 has yet to see combat and it is 20 years old. I really believe America will be shocked at how pitiful their military really is.

          • Ol' Scratch October 30, 2017 at 12:10 pm #

            Finest show military the world’s ever seen! All for outrageous profits of course!

          • seawolf77 October 30, 2017 at 4:05 pm #

            The F-35 is a complete waste. It has long been known multi-function aircraft don’t work because they have different requirements. Camels were designed to travel great distances with very little water. Horses were made for speed and power. A Camelhorse does neither well. A 2 trillion dollar boondoggle that will get its ass kicked in combat.

          • outsider October 30, 2017 at 5:01 pm #

            @Scratch,

            If Mueller indicts Trump, things will get VERY interesting, VERY quickly.

  2. Graycenphil October 30, 2017 at 9:05 am #

    It seems Manafort has been a crook for a long time. I just wonder why he had to go for a high profile job. He probably could have continued practicing his trade unnoticed forever.

    I won’t shed a tear if Hillary does wind up getting dragged in too. But I’d rather if she just went away.

    • seawolf77 October 30, 2017 at 10:41 am #

      Oh that’s easy. Greed. The pie kept getting bigger and bigger. Using his Russian connections to help elect a president for a ton of loot.

      • TiredOfTheTreadmill October 30, 2017 at 12:22 pm #

        Greed, and the idea that Jim constantly notes “nothing matters and anything goes.” There’s hubris a’plenty out there these days. It’s like the rumor about Goldman Sach that the bigger the scam you can pull off and not get caught, the higher you will rise in the company. It’s all part of the money & power games. What can you pull off and still not get caught due to who you know and who/what you can pay.

        • Walter B October 31, 2017 at 8:07 am #

          Does it not boggle the mind to realize that these piles of money that the greedy will do any wrong to acquire not only have a true value of ZERO, but that the perceived value of the fiat currency could at any time assume its true and actual value of NOTHING? Once you realize and accept this as fact you will find yourself left wondering WTF is wrong with so many human beings that they allow themselves to be so easily and totally manipulated by absolutely nothing.

          • Graycenphil October 31, 2017 at 11:36 am #

            Good morning Walter. One may believe (incorrectly, I say) that our money may someday have no value. But currently it does have great value, whether you call it real or perceived. Manafort did a lot of nice things (depending on your definition of nice) with his stolen money.

          • Walter B October 31, 2017 at 1:15 pm #

            And those of you that are willing bark like a dog for your share of it will continue to be enslaved by its perceived luster. I think you completely missed the point and are probably unaware that the tens of millions of Deutschmarks that I hold from the Weimar Republic are completely worthless as are my confederate dollars as well. Nothing lasts forever and everything changes. Change in fact is constant though the rate may vary and as Darwin postulated, it is not the smartest nor the strongest that survive but those that are able to adapt to change. Of course for you everything only changes for the better so I suppose I am only tippy tapping here to exercise my fingers. But that’s not a bad thing I suppose….

          • Graycenphil October 31, 2017 at 6:55 pm #

            Everything does not change for the better, and I never said that. I have said that overall, the world has always been improving. I totally stand by that, and expect that to continue long into the future.

            It is not hard to find currencies that have failed over the years. But people in those countries certainly did not lose everything; most of those with assets continued to have assets. If everything you owned was in Deutschmarks or Confederate dollars under your mattress, you had a problem. That would not have been a very smart way to invest.

            I do not expect the dollar to fail anytime soon; I am extremely confidant about that. Still, in the incredibly unlikely event that did happen, your assets in this country will still have value.

      • Graycenphil October 30, 2017 at 5:30 pm #

        I agree it’s not just greed. If it was that simple, he could have kept on doing what he was doing and made plenty of money. I think he must have been looking for fame and power. Big mistake.

  3. Epicur October 30, 2017 at 9:31 am #

    Thank you for an excellent piece Mr. Kunstler. It shows the nature of the swamp that is our national political capital without favoring sides.

    “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Yeah, waaayyy short.

    It will be fun to watch and see if they can keep the sniping in the circular firing squad from breaking out into a full blown fusillade.

    I have a theory that, as we approach the crisis that will demand the formal (legal) declaration of our national emergency, the contest is being fought more earnestly. This is because whoever occupies the White House when the EMERGENCY is declared will garner almost absolute power.

    It is like a game of musical chairs at the end where the last two contestants want to be in front of the last chair when the music stops. But this game is deadly serious and the chair is more like a throne.

    The problem for us serfs is that both of the last contestants are assholes and we will not prosper under either – although it is certain that some will suffer more depending on which of our national “saviors” gets the throne.

Drag Queen have already been given access to small children in schools and libraries. The Evil is overwhelming, yet you think it’s fine. That simply means you’re Evil too.

        • Walter B October 30, 2017 at 2:14 pm #

          The dipshits that are bothered by those who oppose “trannys in the military” are the poster boys for stupidity. Those of us with ties to and family in the service have more than a lot more details of the seriously expensive problem that this issue actually presents. Since the service medical insurances pay for the operations, we are experiencing more and more individuals that sign up just to get a free ride for the transformation. Once underway, the patient is put on anti-depressants for a long time before the surgery and then a long period afterwards. During this time the patients are not allowed to be near, handle or train with weapons or weapon systems whatsoever, which puts them pretty much out of use for almost a two years period. If I remember correctly the total bill for the transformation weighs in at around $2 million bucks. How can there be ANY logic or value in such nonsense? Do the whiners actually WANT to pay for such non-productivity? Why does this benefit our country or our society? I can see those who profit from the surgery being excited by the prospects, but besides them it is a total scam and waste of taxpayer dollars.

          • Elrond Hubbard October 30, 2017 at 4:29 pm #

            Are trans people really joining the military just to get coverage for sex reassignment surgery? There’s an obvious solution whose benefits should be clear to everyone: Medicare for all. Not only would the military save whatever expense it incurs for their care (probably a great deal less per year than even one F-35), but the only trans people entering the military would be ones with a real desire to serve their country (and hopefully, they would have the hard part over already). Everybody wins!

          • outsider October 30, 2017 at 5:10 pm #

            @Walter B,

            I thought that Trump put an end to those government paid for sex changes for the military. Or, did the Courts override him on that one too? Somewhere Putin is laughing his ass off.

          • muddmike October 30, 2017 at 5:16 pm #

            Yes, out of a $600 billion + budget $2 million is 0.0003%. That is less than the daily advertising spending of the military, and FAR LESS than the waste of uncontrolled cost overruns!

            That is probably about the cost of a single sortie to drop guided bombs on civilians in the Middle East!

            Do you have any documented proof on how many people are doing this?

          • Walter B October 30, 2017 at 5:29 pm #

            Gee whiz mudmike, yeah $2M is a small percentage of the budget but that is just for one person. I found this article that estimates 15,500 serving with brings the total up to $31B or more than half the budget.

            washingtonpost.com/politics/transgender-in-the-military-a-pentagon-in-transition-weighs-its-policy/2…

            And I have little patience arguing finance with the people of this nation as 99% percent of them are illiterate in accounting, finance or mathematics and even fewer that can manage a budget at all. It all adds up and we pay for it all and we are currently leveraged far into the future. It had better collapse soon or we will be really screwed hard in the end.

          • Walter B October 30, 2017 at 5:31 pm #

            I was interrupted and said half, sorry it is actually 5% and a big nut at that.

          • muddmike October 31, 2017 at 10:10 am #

            If that estimate is correct, then I stand corrected. You should have lead with that.

          • Walter B October 31, 2017 at 1:25 pm #

            Good point Muddmike, and your reply is evidence of a sharp mind as well. Thank you for kicking the idea around in such fine fashion. Those of us who run multimillion dollar projects and government budgets (the line items are almost uncountable, realize that a few $100k here a few $100k there, multiplied by thousands of items and you’ve got numbers that boggle the average mind. I am of the opinion that Americans are no longer able to understand what dollar amounts even mean anymore with trillions, gazillions, and who knows what is above these amounts really means. Line items, dealt with one at a time category by category, page after endless page is a staggering task to control indeed and it take a serious OCD, anal retentive or detailed oriented mind with an intricate system to manage these beasts properly. I love it though because in the end, mathematics never lies and the multiplication of scale can work for you as well as against you.

    Step right up and place your bets.

    • Ol' Scratch October 30, 2017 at 10:55 am #

      Probably won’t happen. Manafort’s been designated the fall guy. Unless he’s got serious goods on someone(s) big that can’t be swept under the rug, but I can’t imagine why he’d have been prosecuted if that was the case. He’d likely already have made a deal to save his neck. But who in the hell knows, really?

    Wow, Jim have you ever taken a step back to view your blog site here and see it for what it has become – a functioning replacement for the Main Stream Media and a place to come to actually get decent news? Thank you, I was made aware of a lot of details in this issue that I have not been aware of. I simply cannot partake in “news” on TV (don’t have cable anyway), papers or any of the so called “media” sites as they are insultingly propagandized and biased. Though I was made aware of a Wall Street Journal editorial board which called this week for a full Russia investigation — not into President Donald Trump, but into the Democratic party, the FBI, and special counsel Robert Mueller. I will certainly not be holding my breath for justice as I believe that that bitch has died in the dirt a long time ago, but hope springs eternal doesn’t it? Oh wait, hope was destroyed over the course of the last eight years, wasn’t it?

    In any case thank you for your unbiased facts, I will keep my eyes open and my nose to the wind, though I fear that Frau Clinton may still raise her ugly head for another attempt to get her turn. If she does not wind up dangling from a gibbet in some public square somewhere, someday soon, she may surely rise again. You cannot dismiss true evil, it never dies.

    • ozone October 30, 2017 at 11:33 am #

      Walter,
      I must say that you and Epicur are hitting on the salient points of this particular dilemma and the rotting-fish zeitgeist of our situation in general. It’s really quite something to be a (live – for now) witness to the dissolution of ones’ own “essential” institutions! …Can’t say I’m hopeful for a decent outcome of it; like I have said, if some part of the collective “we” should emerge from the ashes, it will likely be the work of some generations to expunge the old ways of doing business and deleterious conventions.

      Desired or not, the play must be played and our parts in it have yet to be written.

  6. davidreese2 October 30, 2017 at 10:04 am #

    Okay, maybe Manafort is getting his due.

    But when talking about the Swamp, can anyone name even one honest Congressman who represents the 99 percent?

    • Cavepainter October 30, 2017 at 10:17 am #

    “but mightn’t it be a little absurd to outlaw dialogue between incoming White House officials and foreign ambassadors” –JHK

        And as far as I am aware, no one has accused the current administration collecting $500K for a silly speech or profiting from the sale of uranium to the Russians or are things of a concrete nature of no value anymore?

      • Blue Horse October 30, 2017 at 2:21 pm #

        Just talking to ambassadors isn’t the problem and never was! Lying about it on official gov’t docs is illegal, as is lying about it in congressional testimony. Correcting the record once one has been caught is as fishy as it gets. Registering as a foreign agent after one has been caught (Flynn was in fact being paid by foreign powers to influence government policy) presents at a minimum a problem of conflict of interest as a National Security advisor. Given that it’s not likely that Sessions, Trump Jr., Kushner, etc., all just didn’t remember meeting with Russians, the logical assumption (seems to me) that there was nefarious if not illegal behavior going on. But that’s just me, and perhaps a few million others. How’s that logic for obviation?

        • Walter B October 30, 2017 at 3:05 pm #

          So lying about talking to Russians is a far worse offense then selling out to them and selling them uranium while in office? Wow, I must be insane because I understood as well as every other human being I ever have spoken to has realized that ALL politicians lie for a living. Wait a minute, does this mean we can finally arrest, try, and execute ALL of them? Now THAT’s the brand of Hope I have been waiting for, bring it on!

          • seawolf77 October 31, 2017 at 10:17 am #

            What is this obsession with uranium? Because it can make bombs? Russia already has nuclear weapons. The State Department along with 13 other departments approved the sale. SHE did not sell them anything.

          • Walter B October 31, 2017 at 3:21 pm #

            I do not consider it an issue about uranium but one of not only “talking” to the Russians as the administration is accused of doing versus dealing with the Russians in cash for services and for materials by those in office at the time. If the Sellout Scumbag Media can deflect the public’s attention from the material to the immaterial on this one then America deserves to sink into oblivion immediately if not sooner.

      JHK has many interesting, and occasionally wise, observations. But his lazy lack of attention to the details and threads of the several Russia stories (as they relate to both Trump AND Hillary, but esp. Trump) is very odd. It seems he is guilty of his own disparaging phrase summing up our times, with a “Who cares? Nothing matters and anything goes.”

      Transgenders potentially using the wrong bathrooms merit attention, but potential money laundering and conspiracies between U.S. government officials and foreign governments and businesses don’t.

    “Mobuto Sese Seko” is the best name for a tyrant, ever. Just say it with the gravitas it merits.

    JHK is wrong on one thing, his apparent insistence that no monkey-business went on with the Russians. What I find most interesting, but finally, not surprising, is that the Clintons were also taking Russian money. I hope a lot of our pols go to jail over this.

    While Russia is not an active enemy, Putin rightly sees us as a weakened geopolitical rival. He’s engaged in a payback campaign to further weaken and divide us, and it is working. I don’t blame him. We kicked Mother Russia enough when she was prostrate during the Yeltsin years.

      …And are kicking still. The surrounding of Russian borders with NATO forces, not to mention their commanders and their aggressively-worded pronouncements, is but one facet of this evil gem. For another example, Turkey has just been “advised” that their purchase of the Russian anti-aircraft system, rather than the more expensive (and much less effective) American one is “problematic” and may leave a bad taste in the mouths of NATO puppet-masters in the business of crisis continuation and “solving”.

    It is not likely that JHK missed Frontline’s “Putin’s Revenge”, Part 1 last week and Part 2 coming November 1. It argues that Putin was scared by the Arab Spring and similar uprisings against his kind of rule. So when HR Clinton seemed to be going after him along those lines, he decided to go after her. There does seem to be something serious about this Russian business.

    One highlight of Part 1 was the reaction of HR Clinton when she heard that Muammar Gaddafi had met his end: “We came, we saw, he died. Ha Ha Ha.” Not that old Muammar didn’t deserve it, but I do not appreciate such public gloating in a US Secretary of State. Demon Sow is a good description of the woman.

      How Ugly American of you to say that “old Muammar” deserved to die. The man performed economic miracles in Libya and made his country the richest on the continent. With the oil revenues he provided free education, free medical, plenty of water from underground aquifers, and cheap housing, just to name a few. Plus, he stopped the Africans from migrating to Europe in the hundreds of thousands. His execution by Obama/Hillary was a tragedy of immense proportions.

      • windward October 30, 2017 at 11:56 pm #

        I did some research before I wrote that post. I can’t rely on my memory, and google makes it easy to find out what happened. For instance:

        “Tales abounded of torture, lengthy jail terms without a fair trial, executions and disappearances. Many of Libya’s most educated and qualified citizens chose exile, rather than pay lip service to the lunacy.”

        bbc.com/news/world-africa-12688033

        Remember the Lockerbie bombing?

        You have probably heard of Godwin’s Law:

        “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hitler approaches 1.”

        Then there is Fleming’s Law:

        “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability that Godwin’s Law will be mentioned approaches 1.”

        Hitler did a lot of good for the German people. Stalin was good in many ways for the Soviet Union. They were two of the greatest torturers and mass murderers in history. Neither of them got what they deserved.

        Your objections are an example of how we got Trump. Ignorance, refusal to face facts, indifference to the suffering of others and in general an inability to understand the world.

        It is beginning to look like Trump will get what he deserves.

    There’s an outside chance, of course — outside, say as far away as the planet Mars — that Mr. Mueller will just flop his whole hand on the table and indict President Trump.

    Most likely they were going to arrest Trump today, but Putin’s rehearsal on Friday of the volley launch of ICBMs convinced them to postpone this sweet moment until later.

It seems as if there are several forces in DC all looking to take each other down with little regard for how much this might harm us. I personally can’t even keep the players straight. It makes little sense to me other than the usual “follow the money”.

    It’s also so hard to even get real information as the MSM is so biased in one direction or the other. I no longer have any idea whom to believe; I know the NYT, WAPO and their ilk don’t speak the truth and are intent only on bringing down Trump and his allies.

          • Janos Skorenzy October 30, 2017 at 6:33 pm #

            Of course: both time and mental energy are limited. And then there is the inertia factor – the time and effort needed to change from low to high or high to low, though usually the former is much more difficult. Thus Orwell was advised not to become a manual laborer because you get stuck there. (in Down and Out in Paris and London)

            On a high level: I read about a Mathematician who wouldn’t go the Symphony if he was in the middle of a period of creative work. It simply drew off too much of the eros or life force that he needed for his vocation.

      Yes Mountain gal, this place and others like it are the last bastion for what we used to call news. Where regular people from all over can come and post what it is they see from where they are. Our government learned from the Nazis when they conquered them that the general public is best utilized when they are fed a steady diet of bullshit and led in the direction that suits those who lead best. Our government no longer even considers us as pawns. We are far below that value to them. We are even lower than the dirt under their feet, though most of their feet never touch the soil anymore anyway. It has become obvious that they do not even need us for taxation purposes anymore since they can simply create whatever it is they need to procure whatever it is that they want out of thin air. We have become useless eaters all and once we have provided them all with enough technologies and robotic slaves to replace the majority of us, they will probably see to it that we are removed entirely from the equation. After all, neither they nor their spawn require any competition for the dwindling resources or the fat cat jobs that are now handed down from generation to generation.

A lot of fun, also pitched to several agents, and am reminded that, as one agent’s byline put it, ‘despite Trump, we are buckling down harder on showing diversity and putting inclusion into literature, as well as giving a voice to the LGBT community and others long kept out of the mainstream.’

    New York Rumors. Eyewitness account:

    I went yesterday at 8 am in the subway, next to the place where Hillary Clinton’s campaign headquarters were a year ago.

    Next to that place were two military hummers. What reminded me vividly on January 25, 1982 in Moscow, so the metro station there is small, but here were five policemen inside, and at the nearest interchange node under the government of Brooklyn there were fifty policemen. Maybe a hundred and fifty.

    At the same time in Manhattan, it was quiet and tranquil, and the streets were empty as in Detroit, including because the day before the media had been hysterical in connection with the impending storm, the flood and other cataclysms that turned into ordinary downpour.

    Because of this downpour, the Hyde Park in the Union Square moved underground, where I learned that Trump today is making public Lyndon Johnson’s membership in KKK and some neo-Nazi organizations from which threads go to the Deep State, now headed by Hillary Clinton.

      That Johnson was once or even remained at the time of his death a member of the KKK should surprise no one. As far as his involvement in the JFK assassination, the only real question is was he an active conspirator or simply “along for the ride,” although the line between the two would of course be very hazy and highly deniable. At the very least, he knew it was going down, gave his willing or unwilling consent, and was prepared to take the reins immediately afterward. Like all the Dulles acolyte “true believers” of that time, he no doubt viewed himself as doing “god’s work” according to whatever twisted logic they applied to their efforts.

      “And what does the White Whale symbolize”

      Janos,
      Melville was once questioned on the symbolism…he said it was just a whale….

      Sometimes a whale is simply a cigar….

      • Janos Skorenzy October 30, 2017 at 6:40 pm #

        Obviously it’s more than just a whale. He’s the last one who would know. How many times have you been enraged and denied it? You extraverts are cut off from your inner being and often have no idea who you are or what you are doing. Like Lenny in “Of Mice and Men” you end up killing someone “by accident”. Try thinking of yourself as just a character in a novel. If you like, you can try to write a better character, Dostoyevsky as opposed to Stephen King let’s say. You really don’t know yourself any better than that. The Eye/I cannot see itself after all.

        Or he knew and just didn’t want to give it away too cheaply.

    Short term memory does seem to be prominate. That is undeniable. However in a time when it is, literally, one catastrophe after another, how is one to reflect on these things. There is no respite.
    I am someone who is aware of history, geological, as well as human, and I’m not thinking about Dallas, or Florida, or Las Vegas, or Hillary, or Trump, or Brexit…Not unless someone or something brings them up. Not because I feel they have no importance, but because they are part of the thing that is happening that brings us to blogs, and such, as this. The windung down of the industrial cheap energy era. We all know this.

    So a short term memory when dealing with these cascading catastrophes is a virtue. A way to disconnect from the superficial and reconnect to that which is slower and older. That which is timeless. Cycles that are hundreds to thousands to millions to billions of years long. To the infinitude.
    We have all the information we need to know that it is time to pull our energetic tentacles away from the broader context of “The Long Emergency” and the subsequent wind down of mass industrial society.
    Refocused into our families and communities. Into our immediate felt experience of reality.
    This is the vantage point to build our lives (regardless of what’s in the news or on social media) in a way that develops integrity and real joy.

    My money is on Manafort taking a dive, either for a pardon from Trump or a deal with Mueller in exchange for leniency.

    Manafort gives to Mueller the narrative all of Trump’s worst-enemies are too-ready to hear, that it was all Manafort, that he kept Trump out of the loop and used Trump, Trump Jr, Kushner, et al as his own set of puppets to get what he wanted, which was something to exchange with his Russian debtors to forgive the massive debts he accumulated by taking loans from them he couldn’t otherwise pay off.

    Trump gets what he wants, which is to show that he personally had not done these things, although I wonder if he’ll be able to subdue his vanity and wear the role of easily-manipulated-puppet or his pride will get the better of him and he’ll spill the beans to make it look like he was in charge and in the know all along.

    Trump’s enemies get what they want — irrefutable evidence of collusion and an excuse for losing an un-lose-able election to the candidate that only an idiot would lose to, plus Trump is made to look the fool. Note that they don’t actually want Trump to get kicked out of office any time soon because they think they can parley Trump-the-fool into a congressional majority in a little over a year from now.

    Manafort gets what he wants, which is payment of his debt to his Russian loansharks with maybe 5 years in a minimum security prison resort stay and then a nice fat book deal when he comes out and tells his story.

    I saw this—-

    The Las Vegas shooting , the “biggest mass-shooting in US history” has been absolutely bumped off the news. Not a mention of it in 3 days or more. These same bastards mentioned Charlottesville and Heather Heyer everyday for over a week, even here in UK !!’

    • BuckP October 30, 2017 at 3:38 pm #

      I live in Las Vegas where there exists a news blackout around the massacre also. The MGM employees have a gag order and many of the Route 91 attendees’ stories are not getting out, such as shooters being on the ground. Obviously the Mandaly Bay 32nd floor was unoccupied during the shooting because no witnesses have come forward. The only investigations are coming from alt media via Vimeo and you tube. Nothing from the MSM! The FBI and ATF control the investigation not the LVMPD, which is odd for it being s state crime. Everything here is back to normal with the hotels full and the casinos humming. Very sad! Our country has gotten too conditioned to these massacres and we don’t ask the hard questions.

    Another scandal exposed by criminal gov mafia:

    Still Report #462

    So we may be getting closer to the bottom of that UPS charter that unloaded 30 bus loads of people at night at the Harrisburg, Penn Regional airport. This was broadcast as Minute Memo #201. Our fearless commenters provided some great information. It turns out that UPS has converted a few planes for passengers as charters. There are several articles on this if you do a search on it. Ed said that he heard an interview with a commercial pilot last year who: “…refused to sign a non-disclosure agreement that allowed him to break FAA regulations but lost his job in his refusal. He was to fly [refugees] in from some middle east country into JFK in the middle of the night bypassing security. A person named only “Please Stay Tuned” alerted me that this: “Could be the Pennsylvania Refugee Resettlement Program. Seems to be a very quiet gov funded org.” Well, as it turns out, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie revealed last week on Fox that the Obama administration has been bringing in refugees by plane for quite a while. [insert Christie] But will these refugees ever make TV news. No way! Middle of the night, landing at rotating small regional airports, they quickly jump on common charter buses. TV cameras will never be there. And just look at the numbers. Everyone is getting all excited about Obama saying he would bring in 10,000 refugees from Syria. In the first 5 years of the Obama presidency, the U.S. gave out green cards to over 680,000 immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, in recent years, 100,000 new Muslim immigrants are brought into the United States each year, and it’s growing at a rate of about 10% per year. So this battle in the press about whether or not to reject the president’s plan to bring in 10,000 more is nothing but a distraction. The truth is that in the last 5 years, we have admitted more Muslims into the U.S. already than the entire Muslim population of Belgium – and that entire country is on lockdown from the Friday the 13th terrorist event in adjoining France. I’m Still reporting from Washington.

      “… The clip is nothing more than a dark, shaky phone video shot by someone driving behind some nondescript buses as they passed signs indicating they were near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, accompanied by some conspiracy theory narration lacking any shred of evidence to back it up.

      “Moreover, no one else reported witnessing the arrival or offloading of the buses comprising this alleged secret refugee convoy at any end destination.

      “In response to the video, a spokesperson from UPS flatly denied that passengers had been unloaded from any of their planes at the Harrisburg airport:

    Jen in San Jose, if you’re looking in …

    Strange news from Santa Clara. Is that near you?

    At the Great America Six Flags theme park, a Halloween event, fright night mainly for young families with little kids.

    It seems the play act Halloween antics turned into the real thing out there in ‘Great America’, when about 40 ‘Youths’, and ‘Teens’ began assaulting park goers with tasers and baseball bats, robbing them of jewelry, cell phones and wallets. A ‘night of the living dead’ scene ensued apparently, with thousands of panicked revelers streaming out of the park, many bleeding from head wounds, some even climbing a high fence trying to get away.

    On the east coast, in NYC mainly, ‘Polar Bear Hunting’ and the Knockout Punch Game’ has made a comeback. The most disturbing case I already mentioned, a young blond girl in a bus station laid out — I mean laid out by a ferocious sucker punch to the head. She went down hard. It was a big black dude who nailed her, maybe 275 lbs. He nonchalantly walked away, but some of his friends took photos of her laying on the deck, out cold, and bleeding from the mouth. Nobody appeared to help her.

    None of this made the national news. The honchos running big media, they don’t go to places like Great America Six Flags. And their daughters are safely ensconced in private girls schools up he in Connecticut and Mass., not walking thru bus stations by themselves in NYC.

    That ‘Day of Rage’, when Whitey will be taken down, was supposed to begin Nov. 4, but maybe it started a little early.

      When my kids were teenagers, I let them go to Great America in the daytime–but not at night. They’ve had gang problems at the park for a long time. The amusement park shares a parking lot with the new Levi’s stadium–home to the Forty Whiners. The only place you’d want to live in the City of Santa Clara would be near Santa Clara University–a jewel in the crown of Jesuit education.

    The Roman New Year was established by Julius Caesar on January 1 on the recommendation of Sosigenes of Alexandria, and it is connected not only and not so much with the day the new consuls assume office and the beginning of the Roman fiscal year, but with the emergence of a principally new state – the multinational Roman Empire, which in its very basis differed from the national and even to some extent Nazi state – the Roman Republic.

    Unfortunately today many people do not understand the role that this new type of state, created by Julius Caesar, continues to play for Christianity, although the Russian word “Tsar” and the German word “Kaiser” originate precisely from the Latin word Caesar, which arose not only in memory of Julius Caesar, but first of all in the memory of the new type of state that he created, without which the mission of Christ would be, to put it mildly, difficult, if possible at all.

Nevertheless, it does exist as a guiding compass for people. You talk of hatred because being an übermensch, that’s what you’re all about. Denigrating the other as inferior. But you’re wrong. There’s no hatred involved, only disappointment and disgust at you and your übermensch kind. The propaganda lies and genocide has been exposed for what it is. You can’t ran away from it, nor can you embrace it – though I know that you actually do embrace it. But not everyone is an übermensch god, the son and descendant of übermensch gods, some of us are still human and prefer to be mere humans. Humans with a tad of decency that comes with that title.

          • Ol' Scratch October 31, 2017 at 8:20 pm #

            Janos,

            There are no “our” lands, there are only lands. Humans don’t and can’t ever truly “own” anything, especially something so basic as land/earth. The earth existed before humans were here, and will continue to exist long after they’re gone. Forgive me for observing that your “philosophy” is so primitive that it’s truly beneath contempt (as in, not even up to being contemptible). You make a mockery and obscenity of the concept of “love,” although I have no doubt that your motives are somehow oddly “pure.”

            I too have long suspected you are a frustrated or actual priest, who is bringing his fear/hatred onto this board in frustration at mankind’s inability/unwillingness to live up to your frustrated Christian ideals. But here’s a hint: the Christian religion has long since been exposed as the state-sponsored sham it was as soon as the Romans usurped it way back in the day. Whatever truths some Jew named Jesus may or may not have espoused back in the day, they have all largely been watered down and/or altered altogether to the point of irrelevancy at this point in time. Continuing to cling to them – just like the American Constitution – is just so much foolishness about to be flushed down the toilet of history, whether any one of you likes it or not.

            While Ol’ Scratch appreciates your religious zeal, you’d do well to renounce it. It’s definitely not serving you well.

          • Janos Skorenzy October 31, 2017 at 11:48 pm #

            You use Ultimate Truth (indeed I preach as much to Libertarians and Conservatives) in order to destroy vital relative truth. The white lie of ownership allows for many to participate in power, insures privacy, and maximizes enjoyment – and most important of all: keeps Power from centralizing absolutely.

    Correction to my previous post

    Manafort was threatened not with twenty years in prison, as I naive thought, but with eighty, and it was not Trump who was declared the enemy number one of the liberal public, but the head of the White House administration, General Kelly, who dared to declare to the world on Monday that the United States was in a state of civil war caused by the inability of Hillary Clinton’s supporters to compromise and from myself I will add her personal general incompetence.

    It is good that they understood this in the White House; they may soon realize that it is still necessary to negotiate with them, but the negotiations should be done by the army elite units and militia in full accordance with the Second amendment to the US Constitution.

    It’s not necessarily that these Lesbo(?) goobers are consciously shilling for their own reality show. It’s that they “naturally” already live as if they were reality stars. There’s a lot of people like this now. There’s a layer of consciousness that shouldn’t be there. Sometimes there’s nothing underneath anymore. All layer, turtles all the way down.

    Race question in the Civil War in the US

    Of course there are a lot of questions, but it’s not for Russian Nazis to discuss these topics. Let them go at it, and they will start a civil war in Russia, and when they are taken down they will cross over to the West and return to their homeland as part of invading army that sets itself the task of enslaving and destroying the Russian people.

    As it have been in the 17th, 19th and 20th centuries.

    As for the race issue in the United States, if a member of ODESSA uses black racism as a trump card, this does not mean that he is a fighter for the rights of Negroes in the United States.

    Moreover, if a person denies the superiority of the white race, this does not mean that he is fighting against racism – it may very well be that he regards the black race as superior, and that White and Indians are subhuman.

    The USA, with all their advantages and disadvantages, was built by WASPs – white Anglo-Saxon Anglicans, who for some reason were declared Protestants, despite the fact that the real Protestants do not recognize the apostolic succession and the apostolic succession of the Church of England and its clones in particular.

    And among these WASPs were not only racists and supporters of slavery, but also abolitionists who forced the US to abandon slavery.

    And among my black friends, I do not know anybody who is interested in the fact that the Indians fought in the Confederate army, whose monuments they demolish, because the federal army mercilessly destroyed Indians and the worst pages in the Indian genocide were written by the Northerners.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sand_Creek_massacre

    And psychology: “I am interested only in the grievances of my race, and of everyone else I do not care” this is racism.

    And the real Nazis know this very well and use it with pleasure. In particular, in the flaming civil war, Hillary Clinton, knowing full well that the WASPs and Latin Catholics do not support her for religious reasons, and most of the black Protestants, too, is trying in every way to kindle a racial war, hoping to translate the conflict from the socio-religious into the racial plane and attract “Ni**rs” as cannon fodder to her side, as I’m sure she calls them.

    But she will not succeed, as most black Americans remember how she poisoned Obama’s Presidency, and those who forgot about it deserve what awaits them for participating in a riot against the legitimately elected US president who as opposite to Hillary Clinton is by no means racist.

    • Ol' Scratch October 31, 2017 at 8:31 pm #

      The only question to be resolved by the American Civil War was who was going to own slaves: white, corporate capitalist, industrialists in the north; or white, plantation owner capitalist, agriculturalists in the south. The race card was played long after the fact to assuage rich white guilt and to reunite the country after allowing such an abomination to take place in the first place for mere profits. The people of the time understood all this full well (and resented it mightily!), but history has since been whitewashed (a more truthful term has never been uttered!).

    Before we condemn the ‘moose lambs’ again shouldn’t we at least find out if the alleged NY perp’s middle name is Muhammad?

    Speaking of the perp, he appeared to be carrying two weapons. Somewhere (on TV?) I heard mention that a pellet gun and a paintball gun were recovered and I haven’t heard any more about those weapons since. Add those to the shit list of open and/or concealed carry weapons.

    Speaking of handguns…I am still in the long process of getting a NJ permit to purchase a handgun. Thus far I have gotten 2 people to vouch essentially that I’m a reputable citizen and the local police dept has, I believe, gotten back OK results on their check of my mental health. I also had a full set of fingerprints taken by IdentoGo at a fee of $52.69. Some other research must be performed (arrest record and such) and in a week or so I should be good to go.

    Meantime I went gun shopping in a HUGE gun (and other sporting goods) store in Pennsylvania named Cabela’s. Any of you gun nuts out there heard of it? What an amazing place THAT was…there were enough weapons under one roof to conduct WW3…and what a cast of characters shopping there!, including women in no danger of being molested by Harvey Weinstein, who were examining and handling guns like Annie Oakley. The toddlers clutching at their mommy’s blue jeaned pant legs seemed to see nothing unusual in all this mock aiming and firing of weapons. I felt like such an uninformed wimp in their presence.

    Even when I DO eventually acquire a handgun it will be virtually useless if I, in fact, live by NJ’s rules for concealed carry. For example, the gun may not be carried loaded with ammo in your car and the gun and ammo must be locked in widely separated compartments within the car, like ammo in glove box and gun in locked container in the trunk. Now I ask you, what good is THAT going to do me if some one cuts me off in traffic and I am suffering a bout of road rage… how am I supposed to express how pissed off I am without a loaded weapon easily at hand?………….juuust kidding!

      What a hassle! Out here I’m in and out in twenty minutes, if they’re not too busy, right at the gun store.

      Years ago I took a class for a concealed carry permit, easy enough, and even that is no longer required. Open carry is certainly ok. Keeps you alert, seeing those pistols on the hips of gruff looking characters. You see it from time to time. Not prevalent.

      A year or two ago, a guy about 25 was crossing at the light, in mid Tucson, had a gun on each hip, a shouldered rifle, a blade below the knee and a Bowie knife in his teeth. Just kidding about the Bowie. Sauntering along, like the “happy wanderer”.

      “Valderi, valdera, valderi, valdera, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha…….”

      MidwayUSA, Cabela’s and the like, are well known to gun people.

      “For example, the gun may not be carried loaded with ammo in your car and the gun and ammo must be locked in widely separated compartments within the car, like ammo in glove box and gun in locked container in the trunk. ”

      IIRC a legal gun owner from any state in the union can do that anywhere in this country (unloaded and locked separately) on public roads. There are places like NY City where they have tried to outlaw it, but I think they have lost the court cases.

      I’m older now and do not travel as much, so I don’t keep up (that’s probably not wise), but I’m pretty sure that is the law. If has cost some people a lot of money to fight it in court and some places do every thing they can to harass gun owners, but the Constitution (what’s left of it) allows it.

      • akmofo November 1, 2017 at 2:45 pm #

        It was Turks, not Arabs.

        Arabs did not have good relations with the Turks. Many Arabs were fighting the Turks and were glad to see the Turks defeated.

        The British then double crossed both the Arabs and Jews, and made them enemies where before they were not.

        en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faisal%E2%80%93Weizmann_Agreement

        The Hashemite King, Feisal Ibn-Hussein, was deposed as the ruler of Mecca and the kingdom of Hedjaz (today Saudia). Instead, King Hussein was placed over Iraq and Jordan. The Jews were made to give up part of Palestine (already negotiated to them) to what today is Jordan. Practically all immigration to Israel was then curtailed by the British, something that would cost many millions of Jews their lives, being trapped in the meat grinder that was Nazi Europe and Soviet Russia.

        • Janos Skorenzy November 1, 2017 at 3:23 pm #

          At first many Arabs were Ok with Jews coming in, since they had the capital to improve the area. But when vast numbers began to pour in, they realized they were slated for replacement so they began to fight back. The British put down the Arab rebellion along with armed Jewish settlers. But the Jews didn’t like the UN Treaty since they didn’t want the Arabs to get anything. Thus they began to kill British soldiers, such was their gratitude.

          • akmofo November 1, 2017 at 3:47 pm #

            The British armed and trained the Arab armies that would attack Israel. There was no weapons embargo imposed on the Arabs as it was imposed on the Jews. The British also forbade any meaningful immigration of Jews to Palestine and left the Jews there culturally, economically, politically, geographically, and militarily exposed to a new enemy they were busy cultivating. In essence, for oil, the British set the Jews up for an Arab genocide. You want to make the British blameless for the hostility Jews later felt towards them, that’s your prerogative. It doesn’t reflect history.

    According to the Center for Immigration Studies, in recent years, 100,000 new Muslim immigrants are brought into the United States each year, and it’s growing at a rate of about 10% per year.

    So this battle in the press about whether or not to reject the president’s plan to bring in 10,000 more is nothing but a distraction.

    The truth is that in the last 5 years, we have admitted more Muslims into the U.S. already than the entire Muslim population of Belgium – and that entire country is on lock down from the Friday the 13th terrorist event in adjoining France.

    In related breaking news:

    Researchers at CNN, after an exhaustive study, announced today their findings that an obscure blog commenter posting under the name Q.

      Folks, the Harvey Weinstein thing is peanuts. As others have pointed out, women who acquiesce to filth like Weinstein are called “whores”. I continue to be amazed by women who claim that Weinstein forced himself upon them orally, with the women as recipients. Um, I do not understand how that is possible. Call me naive, but it seems to me that KICKING would be a reliable way to stop that. In the other direction, I have never understood how a woman could be made to perform oral sex. The jaw is the strongest point in the human body, pound for pound. Bite it off. Bite if off and spit it out. Problem solved. Problem so very, very SOLVED. The truth is, almost all of these women have publicly admitted that they either acquiesced (gave up) to Weinstein, or that they kept silent, some for decades, specifically and consciously to advance and/or maintain their careers. This is called “payment in kind”, and PIK is just as much payment as cash on the nightstand, honey.

    New York Police are Furious

    that the true friend, or rather faithful Flying Monkey of Hillary Clinton Mayor De Blasio decided yesterday still to hold a festive parade of evil spirits.

    And if Trump counts on the help of the New York Police in case the civil war in New York acquires a non-hybrid character and he addresses them with an order to arrest the Deep State high rollers who are guilty of the sabotage of the US government, then he has a big problem: they can start helping him without an order.

    I am sorry, but yesterday I was stressed out and I can not write about anything else.

    In addition, the news tape is empty and in general I have the impression that Hillary is losing control over the media. And American journalists in full accordance with the story of the Strugatsky “Inhabited Island”, not having received a regular dose of the ideological fix from above, are paralyzed and do not know what to lie about.

    Bike path victims reflected a buzzing, diverse New York City

    thechronicleherald.ca/world/1516410-bike-path-victims-reflected-a-buzzing-diverse-new-york-city

    “One of the dead was a mother of young sons from Belgium. Five had travelled from Argentina to New York with a tight-knit group of classmates to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their graduation.

    “The other victims were Americans: One a new college graduate working as a software engineer, the other a doting son who had recently lost nearly 100 pounds and was getting a bike ride in between meetings at his World Trade Center job.

    “Those killed in the New York bike path attack reflect a city that is a melting pot, a magnet for international visitors, and a business and technology capital.

    “‘They saw New York as a special place to be,’ said Mayor Bill de Blasio, ‘and we now and forever will consider them New Yorkers.’

    “The victims were mowed down by a rental truck Tuesday afternoon near the World Trade Center. Police called it a terrorist attack, saying the driver was an Uzbek immigrant who ‘did it in the name of ISIS.’

    “The largest group of victims came from Rosario, Argentina, the country’s third-largest city and the hometown of international soccer star Lionel Messi and guerrilla leader Che Guevara. They had made the trip courtesy of one of their well-heeled friends, who was also among those who perished.”

    May the victims rest in peace, and may justice be done upon their killer.

    • FincaInTheMountains November 1, 2017 at 8:09 pm #

        Yes: obsequies are tiresome, I agree. But why should anyone expect an outcome they like from a terrorist attack?

    If special counsel Mueller, with all of the intense investigating going on, discovers that he was somehow involved with the Uranium One scandal as the head of the F.B.I. at the time, and violated the law, does he get to indict himself?

    And…..

    How is it that the subhuman Manhattan bike trail murderer is still alive?

    Cop must be an awful shot.

    Now consider how much time and resources are going to be spent on this bestial scumbag: hospital surgeries, Halal meals, incarcerations with transport, press conferences, family being taken care of with WIC, SNAP, section 8 housing and other FSA benefits, special prayer rooms with attendant foot baths (the Yzlamik show always has lots and lots of prayerz – they are so pious y’know,) and many other kind treatments.

    Unlike what you are going to get Kuffar!

    He needed to be taken care of right freakin’ there; his body becoming property of the State and, with all due haste, imolated inside of a swine’s carcass. His immediate family gathered up for some Nacht und Nebel, never to be seen again.

          Habeas corpus and due process of law are the foundation of any decent civil order. What’s more, these principles receive their most critical test exactly when murdering assholes commit violent provocations like the one in New York this week. Until you acknowledge this and pledge to amend your ways, we have nothing to discuss. You can start your education by seeing the Alain Resnais documentary short film by that title. As you watch earth-movers plow bodies into mass graves at Hitler’s death camps, reflect on the fact that you, and people you love, are protected from a similar fate because those principles are still adhered to by better people than yourself.

      Police arrest man suspected of killing 3 at Colorado Walmart
      Police had yet to determine a motive for the shooting, which occurred late Wednesday inside the busy Walmart. Two men died inside the store, and a woman died later at a hospital, police said.

      thestar.com/news/world/2017/11/02/police-name-suspect-in-colorado-walmart-shooting-that-killed-3.htm…

      “THORNTON, COLO.—A man suspected of fatally shooting two men and a woman inside a suburban Denver Walmart was arrested 14 hours later following a brief car chase Thursday that ended at a congested intersection, police said.

      “Scott Ostrem, 47, was arrested after police pulled over his car about 8 kilometres from the Walmart store in the city of Thornton, police spokesperson Victor Avila said.

      “Television footage showed Ostrem, with close-cropped hair and wearing a red polo shirt, standing silently and staring down as he was handcuffed. Avila declined comment on whether Ostrem had a weapon when he was arrested.

      Here’s a pop quiz.

      1. The Walmart shooting victims reflected:
      (a) A diverse city of Thornton, CO.
      (b) A racially, culturally and religiously uniform city of Thornton, CO.
      (c) The actions of the accused gunman, who bears direct responsibility for his actions.
      (d) Whatever Alex Jones says. That guy really has his finger on the pulse — I think I’ll give him some money!

      2. Police have named Scott Ostrem as the gunman. The actions of this accused killer reflect:
      (a) Diversity.
      (b) Something other than diversity (fill in the blank): ____________
      (c) Whatever Alex Jones says. That guy really has his finger on the pulse — I think I’ll give him some money!

      3. Police have yet to report a motive for this seemingly random shooting of strangers. Suppose for the sake of argument that the perpetrator was acting as a white nationalist. Which of the following is true?
      (a) Diversity has a price, and the perpetrator is a warrior who made deserving people pay it.
      (b) Diversity has a price, and innocent people spilled their blood because of the perpetrator’s villainous actions.
      (c) Diversity is a valid choice for a free society, but some people will reject it with murderous violence.
      (d) Both (b) and (c).
      (e) Whatever Alex Jones says. That guy really has his finger on the pulse — I think I’ll give him some money!

        I ask because I started listening to him around 2003 for kicks just because I liked to make fun of him and then over time I realized the guy is actually right about far more then he is wrong.
        He speaks about painful truths the mainstream media won’t even begin to explore.
        Of course he does go down tangents that are ridiculous and unprovable but anyone that actually thinks any “news outlet” fails to make mistakes is a fool.

    Russian People’s Cathedral – a Crisis of Articulation?

    Berdyaev as a result refused Orthodoxy and became a Catholic, and Ilyin tried to build an Orthodox religious philosophy on Hegel – the main ideologist of the Illuminati, one of the creators of the Order.

    No wonder he liked Hitler so much. No, I do not deny – Hegel is wonderful, you can say a brilliant philosopher, but all the same Hegel must be verified by Christ and not Christ by Hegel, Christ is the Truth, not a scientific point of view.

    By the way, I do not know about the “scientific point of view”, but the documented scientific method beyond all doubt was created not by Hegel, but by the Emperor Justinian, but Hegelian Christianity and Christian Hegelianism are struggling with each other not only in the pages of scientific journals but also fill Russian People’s Cathedral, occasionally overflowing over the edge.

    Moreover, attempts to somehow verify Hegel using Christ cause objections: Why put Orthodoxy onto philosophical, that is, a scientific language. And this has its own logic, but this is the logic of Tertullian, who said that simpleton believers do not need to know the Holy Scriptures, it is enough for them to know that Christ died for them, and only the ordained hierarchs should talk about heresy and Christian apologetics. And this despite the fact that all the heretics were righteous before they became heretics and received the gift of the Holy Spirit – participation in the Liturgy behind the altar certainly helps, but it does not guarantee of anything.

    But the most terrible thing is that Patriarch Kirill did not consider it necessary to mention Ukraine in his speech, and, speaking of the revolution, he forgot to specify which of them he meant. Meanwhile, the October Revolution is the antithesis of the February revolution, or, in Hegel’s words, these two “revolutions” are a dichotomy, and not an antinomy. And in this sense the October Revolution is rather a counterrevolution, but Kozhinov, with his theory of Stalin as anti-communist and anti-Semite, has nothing to do with this.

    And as far as can be judged by the works of Patriarch Kirill, he really is the shining light of the Orthodoxy, but going to such a podium, he becomes a church diplomat and simply can not tell all kinds of Diomedes out the door like St. Alexis II did.

    And yet, not only the people of the state, but also the hierarchs of the church, one by one, rush into the bubble of philosophy and, not having the proper background, say in scientific language such things that even icons need to be taken out first.

    The fact is that the “scientific language”, unlike the scientific method, arose in the 14th and 15th centuries in the disputes of the Catholic scholars, and by accepting the syllogisms of such geniuses as Hegel and Kant, Orthodox Christians, including Orthodox hierarchs, not even suspect that the attainments of Hegel and Kant are based on the denial of simpletons’ ability to see the Divine Light with their sinful eyes.

          Actually, these literary devices are well known in Jewish tradition and historical scholarship, and are very recognizable once understood. Joseph Atwill does a wonderful job laying these out. But what Joseph Atwill really brings to the table is historical context, which exposes this literature to better understanding of what it really is. That QShtik is ignorant of this, does not mean that others are, or that others should be. QShtik prefers to be willfully ignorant of many things, because that’s the feudalistic pederast mafia programming QShtik received and has internalized. “Nothing to see here”. Am I wrong, QShtik?

          True. And here I am extremely conflicted. I bare tremendous personal affinity and sympathy to the Russian people, but imperialism is theft and it is evil. Rome is serfdom made legal by Christianity.

            Exactly where we differ a lot. Russia can not exist without its imperial essence.

            Good news: Participation in that Empire is on strictly volunteer basis, and I’m pretty sure Anglo Saxons will never volunteer.

            However, there are some talks about reunification of the Church of England with Russian Orthodox Church, but personally, I doubt that it is possible in this century.

          • akmofo November 3, 2017 at 10:06 am #

            It’s voluntary, until it’s not.

            But I agree. Russia faces serious challenges from the many empires surrounding it. These entities are mutually reinforcing. So how to break this circuit? Psychological insight and courage, and Russians thankfully do not lack these in the least.

    The Washington Post argue that it was Russia that taught American politicians to lie, hide money from taxes, launder black profits and even “lead a wasteful lifestyle.”

    In the picture of the world that is imposed on Western society, Russia is given the role of such a “bad guy” who is driving astray the crystal-clear and honest American politicians, billionaires and lobbyists. The era of post-truth finally came about.

    washingtonpost.com/opinions/global-opinions/russia-taught-paul-manafort-all-his-dirty-tricks/2017/10…

    It is impossible not to note the extreme impudence with which this incredibly absurd narrative is pushed forward. The author of the article in the Washington Post, Anna Applebaum does not hesitate to admit that no evidence of cooperation between Manafort and the Russian government was found, but at the same time emphasizes that he acted in Ukraine in the interests of Moscow.

    However, such a recognizable absurdist discourse, in which logic is completely lacking, is something like a family business, considering that Mrs. Applebaum’s husband is the ex-Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland Radoslav Sikorski, one of the most consistent European Russophobes.

    Now that’s a Fresh Prince:
    Rapidly growing human populations risk having a “terrible impact” on the world, the Duke of Cambridge has warned.

    The Duke said that as a result, wildlife was being put under “enormous pressure” and called for the issue to be addressed with renewed vigour.

    His concerns echo those of his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, who in 2011 advocated “voluntary family limitation” as a means of solving overpopulation, which he described as the biggest challenge in conservation.

    His grandson, royal patron of the Tusk Trust, told the charity’s gala dinner in London that measures needed to be taken to save certain animal populations.

    “In my lifetime, we have seen global wildlife populations decline by over half,” he said.
