Last night’s debate raises some interesting questions, such as: would the Romans have elected Caligula if given the chance to vote? Can the Republican party recover from Donald Trump? If the party poobahs “pull the plug” on Trump, as some are threatening to do (that is, cut off funds to his campaign), will they go down the drain with him anyway? Is the USA a nation or just the world’s biggest comedy club? Where is the Deep State when you really need it?

That odor wafting across the land is the smell of Republicans with their hair on fire. Yet the gloat of astonishment on Hillary’s face as she witnesses the Queeg-like crack-up of her rival will eventually fade as she discerns the wreckage awaiting her in the oval office. Weep for your country!

The only good to come out of this sordid election is the certainty that a lot of political debris will be swept away in the Fourth Turning underway. Out of the miasma of idiocy and posture that is this election campaign, the hard-edged realities of our time will emerge and the TV audience will come to the stark recognition that it is not just another mere entertainment.

The other major nations of the world are not so much ganging up on America, as Hillary would have it, but reasonably attempting to ring-fence the mad bull that the USA has become — as the two candidates vie to start World War Three with China and Russia respectively. The last resort of the scoundrels in today’s version of the “yellow press” is to blame Russia for attempting to meddle in our election. War, children, it’s just a shot away.

It is getting to be too late to sort out all the confusion sown by this horrific campaign. From here on its really more a matter of the dust settling. In background of it all looms the train-wreck of global finance, which will be the true determinant of what the American people will have to do in the years ahead. During the weeks of the election distraction, the European banks struggle to conceal their insolvency while the politicians of Euro-land desperately try to paper over the cracks in these fracturing institutions. Few can tell what is actually happening in China’s banking system, but it’s sending out ominous tremors that are hard to ignore. But be sure it is all daisy-chained right into Wall Street and the US banks. The potential for wrecking markets and currencies around the world is extreme at this moment. It may only be a matter of whether it happens before or after the election.

Then we’ll see what happens when financial institutions can’t trust each other. Trade stops. Economies crumble. Pretenses evaporate. If it gets bad enough, the shelves of the supermarkets go bare in three days and you’re living in a permanent hurricane disaster without the wind and rain. Believe me, that will be bad enough. Hillary, if elected, will not get to play FDR-2. Rather, she’ll be stuck in the role of Hoover, the Return, presiding over a freight elevator of an economy with a broken cable. Expect problems with the US dollar. Expect “emergency” actions. Expect the unintended consequences of those actions.

If there is one outstanding upshot of these “debates” it must be their staggering failure to reassure the American public that they can expect effective leadership through the hardships ahead. There must be many others out there like myself wondering who will emerge from the rubble? I suspect it will be someone we haven’t heard of before, just as Bonaparte was unheard of in France in 1792. This is not entirely a nation of clowns, though it feels like that lately.

    Defending The Indefensible is the story of our times and more specifically the story of this 2016 Presidential Election Cycle. This is what it means to be Presidential in America now and forever more as long as America exists in its current unsteady state. A Nation of Laws is not necessarily a Nation of Principles and/or Values. A Nation of Laws increasingly detached from Principles/Values, is a Tyranny of Jackasses exploited by Sadists.

    Defending The Indefensible

        • Q. Shtik October 10, 2016 at 11:49 am #

          Congrats Cold. I’ve been reading the CFN Blog for more than 8 years and this is the first time I have seen Jim say something complimentary about a poster’s comment.

          • jim e October 13, 2016 at 11:03 pm #

            First!

      • Peter Harris October 11, 2016 at 7:42 am #

        The “American public” only have themselves to blame.
        As another poster put it earlier, people get the leaders they deserve, and because the American people are feckless and gormless, and/or, violent and vindictive, then it’s no surprise the American people face a choice between a psychopathic businessmen, and a corrupt member of the American haute bourgeoisie.
        As an outsider, looking into that great big fishbowl, that is the United States, I can only laugh at the handwringing, going on in political forums such as this.

        • Cold N. Holefield October 11, 2016 at 8:05 am #

          There is no such thing as “The American People.” However, as a self-described “outsider” looking in, I can understand your simplistic thinking & scapegoating.

          All the Freshly-Minted Immigrants who are now full-fledged American Citizens since the Hart–Celler Act of 1965 cannot be lumped in or conflated with the progeny of European Immigrants who arrived in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. There are varying degrees of assimilation, and what they’re assimilating to is also dynamic and ever-changing. The Social Engineers who run America and seek to rule the world and pretty much do, pit all these factions against each other and entrain everyone, or almost everyone, to act contrary to and in defiance of their own best interests.

          So yes, there is enough blame to go around, but it’s more complex than saying “The American People” have chosen and they’ll get what they deserve. Let’s have a discussion about choice and what exactly you mean when you say “The American People” first before we ascribe blame to The Little People once again.

          • Peter Harris October 11, 2016 at 9:31 am #

            Ok then, i will be blunt.
            Poor (Middle class) white trash. . . Is that better for you??

          • Cold N. Holefield October 11, 2016 at 9:52 am #

            Thanks for clarifying, Pete. What’s even more hilarious is that the “Leader” “The Poor White Trash” get because they deserve it, may very well drop a nuke on your head, so, I guess, you’ll also get what you deserve. Isn’t it great when everyone gets what they deserve? What’s not to like?

          • Peter Harris October 11, 2016 at 10:02 am #

          • JimInFlorida October 11, 2016 at 4:13 pm #

            There most certainly *IS* an “American People.” They are those who were here before 1965 AND may include those White immigrants who fit the profile of pre-1965 America i.e. primarily WHITE. Those immigrants are best adapted to become Americans. Any who do not, or cannot adapt, have NO historical right to be here.

            True, 3rd Worlders, Muslims, Arabs, etc. CAN gain an ersatz “citizenship” by way of legal or political machination. That does NOT make them Americans.

            And true, the social engineering agenda of the JEWS has fulfilled its goal of polluting the demographic profile of America. But, History will always provide us with a clear bright line that demarcates the last year when there was once an “American People.”

          • Elrond Hubbard October 12, 2016 at 10:53 am #

            Keep it up, JimInFlorida. Spelling America with a ‘k’ and capitalizing the JEEEEEWS every time is really getting somewhere. I think you may have them on the ropes.

          No one likes having their homeland and culture disparaged, especially by an “outsider,” however, thank you for using a word I had never heard before. I looked it up and will no doubt find occasion to use it myself at some time in the future.

          As an outsider, what country do you live in?

          Most of the west is run by blithering idiots.

          Australia and a couple of eastern european countries are the only ones that have a shred of sense.

          Our neighbors to the north elected an idiot so blithering that he almost makes Clinton and Trump appear halfway sane.

    • michael October 10, 2016 at 11:33 am #

      But is it a nation of laws still?

      • ozone October 10, 2016 at 12:19 pm #

        michael,
        You write: “But is it a nation of laws still?”

        Certainly, it is. What needs studying is: who do the laws benefit and who do they punish? From that (by extension) comes an understanding of status/stratification, entrenchment, and *the limits of trust*.

        • Elrond Hubbard October 11, 2016 at 12:43 pm #

          The Divide by Matt Taibbi is an excellent starting point. For example, why does the U.S. have by far the world’s largest prison population, yet every banker got away scott-free in the GFC?

          An important part of the answer is that slavery was never abolished in the U.S., merely curbed by the 13th amendment:

          “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” (Emphasis added.)

          In other words, slavery is completely constitutional as long as you clear the simple hurdle of securing a criminal conviction of the slave. It’s as simple as slipping a baggie of marijuana in their pocket or encouraging a drug-sniffing dog to “find” something in their car. Thousands of police agencies already rely on confiscations and civil forfeiture to fund themselves, and the benefits extend well up the chain.

      Defending the indefensible if the 1rst commandment of politicians, flowed closely by:
      2)Promise them the moon and deliver nothing
      3) Take all the credit for anything that happens, especially if your opponent is responsible
      4) Slough off all the blame to your opponent
      5) Claim to have a secret plan
      6) Impugn your opponent’s patriotism
      7) Insult his supporters
      8) Cry bloody murder if your opponent happens to fart
      9) Honor thy mentor and benefactor
      10) Thou shalt kill your opponent

    They say you get the leaders you deserve. In a land of twerking, gender confusion, and disintegrated families, I’d say that is about right.

    • K-Dog October 10, 2016 at 10:29 am #

      Which would be better at twerking. Hillary or the Donald? If enough people can try to imagine either one of them squirming with carnal lust then perhaps so many people will not vote that the election will be considered a farce.

      Which it already is.

      European trash came to the US in the 1600’s and over 2-3 hundred years committed genocide against the people who lived here – Americans – and then had the gall to call themselves Americans. This agenda of killing and stealing continues to this day, except that now we European trash are killing whole countries and stealing what they got. Yeah, we deserve the Hildabeast and the Russian/Chinese nukes, or whatever else she manages to bring our way. I say “we” because we’re not marching in the streets to protest this murder and thievery.
      About the elections – why would anybody want to pretend to elect the next Terrorist-in-Chief??? The elites want Killery Hitler Clinton, and that’s who the voting machines will say won the election. Wake the f**k up!
      As a veteran, I’m sad that the US military now serves the terrorist interests of the American elites.

      • K-Dog October 10, 2016 at 10:54 am #

        I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.” – Smedley Butler

        • routersurfer October 13, 2016 at 5:19 pm #

          My grandfather marched with Gen. Butler. Old SOB never really understood it as completely as Smedley did. The Deep State is about money. It will go away with the value of money. We are on our own. Hope the train stops for a few decades in the 1800’s before it crashes back to 900 B.C.E.

          • lsjogren October 10, 2016 at 4:32 pm #

            That’s what the Iraq war was all about. A war triggered by a president having been convinced by a lunatic cult (neocons) that western democracy can be forced on a nation to which it is totally alien.

            (Unfortunately, it is increasingly becoming totally alien to the west as well.)

          • routersurfer October 18, 2016 at 5:08 pm #

            Nailed it. War is about resources and trade, not democracy. Thank you seawolf.

          In other words, if elements of a nation’s origins are ugly, then why bother even trying to create a prosperous, civil, and just society.

        Like Ted Turner said, the suicide epidemic among soldiers who realize they are nothing more than legitimate goons is the only ray of hope for humanity. As soon as young people stop buying into the war porn, they’ll have to bring the draft back. Nobody will go, not after Vietnam. It’s like the French did during World War 2. Look at how many Frenchmen died in World War 1. The second time around, they said fuck it, we’ll sit this one out. Now everyone thinks they’re cowards. You think they care? They think we are idiots.

        • Janos Skorenzy October 10, 2016 at 1:47 pm #

          No, some fought. And the Communists killed many, many people they didn’t like after the outbreak of “peace”. Not only people who collaborated with Germans, but anyone they hated.

    We are also seeing the crackup of the Post Cold War American electoral strategy of “Nice White Woman”, ironically brought about by Clinton in 92 and partly destroyed by Hillary and her obnoxious nagging establishment feminists.

    While establishment feminists and polygamist Mormons on the same scolding side of the boat, capsizing is imminent.

    America and the West have since 1992 pandered to the sensibilities to that figment of our imagination the Sainted Woman so electoral politics and our government reflect that and address everything in a small minded, petty and vindictive manner as women do when challenged.

    In answer to your question the Romans would most definitely have elected Caligula.

    At the time of his ascension to power he was known as ‘little boots’ (caliga) because he had followed his father Germanicus around in a child sized military uniform during his fathers campaigns in Germany. It was expected he would be reasonable and intelligent like his father was. Instead he brought ruin to the nation.

    So which of our two PONTUS wanabees elect a horse to our Senate? If a horse can make a donation to the Clinton foundation we already know the answer. Unless that is, the horse wants to attend Trump University.

    Both of our buffoons will try and fight our rising sea levels by slashing the seas with swords just as Caligula did when he went to war against Poseidon. Regardless who is elected the light of burning and crucified Standing Rock activists will be illuminating state dinners.

      What we know of the roman emperors comes from members of the roman elite with time and leisure to write.
      The common people usally felt quite differently about the emperor
      but did not write histories of rome.

      Caligua seems to have had a sense of humour and that alone places him above the drab and sorry figures we must now endure.

    “The only good to come out of this sordid election is the certainty that a lot of political debris will be swept away in the Fourth Turning underway.” As someone who has been a fan of Strauss and Howe for 25 years, I am always pleased to see you reference their work. Yes, we’re in The Fourth Turning and have been since 2008, if not 2001. The difference in start date matters. If it’s the earlier date, we might be out of it by the end of the decade. The latter date implies the Crisis Era might go on for another decade. Oh, to live in interesting times!

    “If it gets bad enough, the shelves of the supermarkets go bare in three days and you’re living in a permanent hurricane disaster without the wind and rain.” That’s quite a fitting image, given our close brush with Hurricane Matthew. At least our space program survived this storm, if not the financial one you forecast.

    “This is not entirely a nation of clowns, though it feels like that lately.” I was wondering if you’d reference all the sightings of creepy clowns lately, and you didn’t disappoint. Some of these clown sightings are real and of people using clown masks to committ crimes. It’s enough to remind me of The Joker and Harley Quinn and drive me to drink.

    • seawolf77 October 10, 2016 at 11:39 am #

      There is nothing here to confirm your theory that the Romans would have elected Caligula.

      • Q. Shtik October 10, 2016 at 1:09 pm #

        The subject of Caligula’s rise in the Roman Empire was raised in one of the NYT’s op-ed pieces yesterday.

        Another (really excellent) NYT op-ed yesterday was titled Shakespeare Explains the 2016 Election. As I gather, Shakespeare’s Richard III describes (from the author’s imagination of how it all probably went down) how “this loathsome, perverse monster actually attained the English throne” against all odds and common sense. And it reads in nearly identical fashion to our political cycle reality of the past year and a half.

    It is Thanksgiving here in Canada and many Canadians are thankful that the American Circus is south of the border. Whatever happens, we will be living next to dangerously unstable neighbour.

    I expect that there are more than a few ambitious individuals sizing up the opportunities for building a popular movement for radical change by building on the forces released by Messrs Trump and Sanders. Juan Peron comes to mind as a model but it will likely be a uniquely American thing

    Pray for a peaceful transition but be prepared for trouble

        Unfortunately, a lot of Americans probably think like you. And if it came down to it, you could just march right in and take us over. No question. But you would be as welcome as the Nazis were in occupied Europe – and resistance fighters can cause a lot of damage.

          Actually, think Anschluss. Though I know little of German culture and less of Austrian, I tend to think of the cultural and linguistic similarities between those countries as analogous to the similarity between the U.S. and English Canada. Either that or Russia versus Ukraine. I value Canada’s independence from the pathologies of Washington D.C. as a ruling capital, and hope that independence will last forevermore.

      Trump is the Candidate of Peace and Hillary the Candidate of Nuclear War with Russia. He made it clear last night even though his VP, Pence, is still in the fog. Once that is understood, there is only one choice and He is by no means the lesser of two evils, but rather the first Nationalist to stand a chance in decades.

      • draupnir October 10, 2016 at 9:11 pm #

        Small chance of that if the DHS gets their grubby hands on our elections. It’s perfectly obvious whom the deep state, elites, bankers, large corporations, mainstream media and the rest of the establishment prefer, and as Stalin said, “The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.” We were doomed as soon as they brought in Diebold voting machines anyway, and I’m not entirely convinced we’ve had a real election since that time.

    Mr. Kunstler and CFN Commentariat
    I do not believe that we must acquiesce. Please consider that the electorate might take the election as intended and snatch it away from the fraud it has become. We can choose to announce that we will not be swayed from ending the status quo and are willing to follow in the steps of our forebearers and accept the discipline of self government. Either we have the courage to recognize and accept the risks of free men governing themselves or we do not.

    Can I find consensus?

    • K-Dog October 10, 2016 at 10:42 am #

      A consensus to do what? Escape from a sinking ship without any lifeboats?

      The status quo is alive and well and about to roll over any who get in its way. Choose to announce as you wish, it will amount to nothing and you will be ignored. The fraud will go on. To acquiesce is not a choice, or if it is, it is the only choice you have. Madness will have its day and you will not get in its way.

        • K-Dog October 12, 2016 at 2:04 am #

          Ah, yeah that’s a very good point. I certainly know I am on lists. I am surly on a few lists I should not be on at all so I deduce I have a life membership in the lists. Being as this is how it is, I ceased worrying about them and became much calmer when I did.

          Ignore the lists for you can do nothing about them and be smart about what you do; understanding lists are a fact of life.

          Remember too that list makers will ask you to ‘announce’ so they can put you on a list when you respond.

        K-Dog:

        I will vote for and contribute to Jill Stein, and Ajamu Baraka, and the green party. Even the NewYorker confirms (in passing details) that more dems in Florida voted for Bush than for Nader, and Gore’s pick of Joe Leiberman as VP was one of many factors in the election, which turned into a selection, contrary to the dems lies. I have always been proud of that vote for Nader and Laduke. Which is why I have few dem friends.

        But it will not be the vote for Stein~Baraka which will allow me to be guilt-free come November. It’s the life I live and have lived, for 30 years, contributing little to nil to the establishment’s benefit. Poetry and Beauty, Integrity and Humility, are invisible to the culture and to the establishment. Wisdom? Ha. Most people, as far as I can tell, have a sever allergic reaction to wisdom. We shall see whether or not evolution selects for or against it.

    • Frankiti October 10, 2016 at 2:57 pm #

      Here’s the thing… if you vote for HC, you vote for a continuation of the machinations that undermine the free market and the source of most whining from this site. It’s not going to fall while she is in office. She is complicit, and a part of the junta of elites that keep the financial scheme alive. And everyone knows this. Knowing this they are much too scared to vote for the grenade… ’cause in the end, they want their government hand-outs, a 401K with some money in it, illegal labor building their homes, cleaning their hotels and serving their fast food. In a war of comfort Vs courage they choose a future of complaining on the internet then remaking a world by their hand.

    At this moment the current power structure is aligned with a view of the world that will destroy humanity. This same structure is aligned with one of the candidates. Recent history indicates that this power structure is myopic. There is every reason to believe that the power will use every resource to destroy the villain of the hour.
    At this point in my nation’s history the infrastructure of government and society is still intact. Let us disregard the condition for a moment, the edifice is standing. Much better to make a stand now than after a further collapse.
    Each registered voter can announce that for them the election is over, there will not be a Clinton presidency.

    I have to say Jim your Queeg-like crack up is spot on. That press conference before the debate… I could see him measuring out the cups of strawberry tinged sexual infidelities and twirling those little steel balls under the table. Carville said it best. Trump is a fat, tired, old white guy who’s lashing out now that he’s been found out to be a fraud, a liar, a cad, and a creep. Just like Queeg when he realized he was a coward. Clinton looked as composed as ever, gave clear, articulate answers, and in general looked presidential. She never took the bait when he called her a liar, when he told her she should be ashamed of herself, when he said she had hatred in her heart. Rolled off like water on a duck’s back. Trump is becoming a parody of himself in real time, and it ain’t pretty. It is downright ugly.

    • Janos Skorenzy October 10, 2016 at 1:58 pm #

  15. Frankiti October 10, 2016 at 11:17 am #

    Let’s look at the debate without the shrill hyperbole.

    Anderson Shtupper wasted no time to bring up the p*ssy comment. When he received an apology, he did not relent, he used it as an opportunity to recover any journalistic credentials he never really had. So intent on throwing out his “tough” questions he ignored, and cut-off, the answers.

    Here’s the thing, Trump was not a politician at the time. he was a jet-setting billionaire bon vivant running a beauty pageant. He was not a public official. If it was Mick Jagger, or Snoop Dog it would not matter. It would be laughed at.

    The total hypocrisy is the fact that in the audience was a former president, and potential first-philanderer, who penetrated an intern with a Cohiba and then placed it into his mouth before receiving oral sex in a government office. He had sex (oral) with an intern in a government office, but they dare bring up Trump carrying on about grabbing a girl’s “p*ssy”? Really.

    Men do at times talk this way. If people, and especially women, don’t think they do, then they are only lying to themselves.

    We then have Clinton blaming the Russians again. We then have her defend the totally ironic position of American strategy to defeat Assad, allow the destruction of Syria, the spread of ISIS, rather than defeating ISIS first. The insane US policy of WANTING Assad, first and foremost, to fall is the cause of the dire situation in “what is Aleppo?” Here’s the answer: Aleppo is when you are not content with initiating and fomenting regime change in a part of the world despite the deaths and suffering of millions.

    The media last night set the tone so they could lament it in a week’s worth of press afterward. “Scandalous” by their very making. It took 2 unhinged moderators to deliver it. Now, more hypocrisy and feigned indignation… to sell, sell, sell the spectacle. Wake up dummies.

    • seawolf77 October 10, 2016 at 11:26 am #

      You have the most hyperbolic candidate in American political history, and you want to remove the shrill hyperbole from the discussion. That’s like a post World War 2 German saying let’s remove the shrill hyperbole about this Holocaust business and burning people alive because this sort of exaggeration does no one any good.

    It has been almost two years now that I have been bombarding those around me with the reality that Hillary Rodan Clinton would be our next president, or more properly, our First Queen. I do believe that everyone here has grown so tired of hearing it that by the time it become reality they will all have gone into hiding to avoid the “I Told You So’s” that are sure to come their way. But I am not like that, and I will be suffering too so how can I gloat. After the second World War when American Marketeers realized that Rosie the Riveter did not need to return to the kitchen but should be elevated to rule every household in the land, a “coincidental” change occurred shortly thereafter. Need became want, bigger became better, price became no object, and debt was made far better than savings. Endless and constant entertainment became the rule of the day and honesty and truth were quickly replaced by happy lies lest the grinning idiots of the land wake up and see the future.

    It seems only fitting to me that a pair of thieving, murdering sellout scumbags should be placed at the helm of the Ameritanic as she heads into the ice fields of tomorrow. Only four years to go will eventually be replaced with only four MORE years left to go and then the Country of Clowns will “elect” something even far worse and far fouler, if that is even possible. If I were to gaze into the Dirty Ball of America’s “future” to glean an idea of what may follow, I would think that by the time Her Highness has had Her way with us all, it might very well be time for Sharia Law to be ushered in on a national basis. Perhaps HRC can increase the numbers of “refugees” to ensure this eventuality, it would only be fair, don’t you think?

    Announce that November 8 is The Declaration of Independence 2016 and work with your community to deny the Clinton presidency.

          As of right now, the latest PRRI/Atlantic poll gives Clinton a 12-point edge over Trump nationally, 49% versus 37%:

          politico.com/2016-election/polls/

          The poll ran from Oct 5-9, overlapping with the whole Access Hollywood open mic kerfuffle. It will be interesting to see what subsequent polls indicate after everyone surveyed has digested the results.

          By way of comparison, Reagan’s margin over Mondale in the 1984 election was 18%, and Reagan famously took every state except Mondale’s native Minnesota. If the election were held today, Clinton’s 12% margin doesn’t look like a 49-state blowout, but it still doesn’t look good for Trump unless something major happens.

    The funny thing is that the tip of the Republican Party felt that this entire tape affair is a suitable occasion for the resumption of attempts to replace Trump as the Republican Party nominee. Of course, it is difficult to defend before sexual minorities the private conversation of a 60-year-old man, from which it appears that he’s really young at heart, and reacts to the opposite sex with passion and candor of a 16-year-old.

    Maybe that’s why the potential vice president of the United States Pence, who just skillfully crushed in the debates Hillary’s Vice, refused to defend Trump in this case. For men with a good ethical and sexual code such defense would be nonsense – well, the men talked about girls – what’s the big deal!? But he announced it with minimum aggression and maximum diplomacy.

    But the reaction of “rainbow orientated” Condoleezza Rice goes beyond the purely feminine indignation with Trump words and it is clearly visible disappointment in failing to change and thus to disrupt the Sarkozy-Medvedev agreement to stop South Ossetian slaughter as well as suppressed hatred of Trump, who has imploded political correctness in the US and hatred of Putin and Russia. Accordingly, all the other mad passionate indignation with Trump words on closer inspection turn out to be a cover for hatred of Russia and its president, sympathy to which Donald Trump has repeatedly expressed.

    Nations are not overly given to real introspection and ours is particularly, at least partially due to our nutty form of “representative democracy”.
    By this I mean the peculiar institution of the executive branch with its fixed term, winner take all, quadrennial reset and the hopelessly skewed nature of the senate (2 for Wyoming, 2 for California).

    But, going forward, the “political realities” will go unrecognized. The Hillary regency will be a shit storm and the next election even worse.
    The country is writhing in the throes of the disconnect from what it has been and what it will be; that’s going to be the 800 pound Gorilla. Whether it ends up with us going to destruction through the “Sampson Option” or whether our internal contradictions cause the collapse of the republic and the fragmentation of its territory awaits the judgement of history and we’re all just Bozos on this bus.

    We want the world as it was for 3 generations. Everything we are doing is dedicated to achieving that goal. In the end, it can’t happen and that is the struggle of our times.

        Of course change is needed in America, if you are one of the wealthy elites who rule. Why risk losing the control that you exert over the masses by allowing them to become educated, critical thinkers and compete not only with you, but with your future spawn? Johnny and Janie Whitefolk have been over-“educated” to assume high paying, non existent professions paving the way for primitive “immigrants” to be brought in to undermine and eventually destroy the middle class threat to the established wealthy. Getting ahead is one thing, but staying there requires the elimination of your competition. Some call it social engineering, but to those who work the strings it is simply good business, and it is working. Can you say goodbye?

    The situation with 34 tons of plutonium has been developing for a long time and it has developed in the United States, when during the construction of the MOX plant in South Carolina they managed to “appropriate” a nice chunk of change in the amount of $7 billion (!!), and then rudely demanded that the US Congress should shell out another $18 billion for the same plant and the sacred cause of the world peace.

    However, Congressmen did not manage to appreciate a good contractor’s humor and even quite the contrary. Although, everything was according to the law and there was no corruption, not unlike everything that is being built in Russia.

    The Putin stooges argued that the same exact MOX plant was built in Russia in time and is already working, for a measly price of $250 million. That would be a 1% of the final price in US, if we assume that the plant will be finished and start working in the Bastion of Democracy and Human Rights.

    Of course, it would be possible to build in Russia two MOX plants – One for Russia and another for US for a $400 million for two. Russia would really save $50 million on its side of the deal, and the US would really save at least 25 billion on their part of the deal.

    Honestly!

    I have said voting in this election is like cleaning up after the dog. You can pick up a dry, crumbly dog turd or a wet steaming pile, but whichever of the major party candidates you choose, you’re still picking up dog shit.

    I suspect most voting Americans are trying to decide which piece of shit is the least likely to stick to the pooper scooper or stink up the house. On one hand, we have a clueless boor and an arrogant bully. on the other, an opportunistic liar and a two-faced fraud. Whether it is “grabbing pussies” or “having public and private positions” both are unfit to serve. Luckily, there is an out. I will vote for Stein, my state is deep, deep blue. My daughter is voting for Johnson. Her state is deep, deep red.

    I just pity the fuckers who live in the battleground states. They are the ones picking up dog shit.

    As to the impending collapse, it may be farther off than people think. TPTB have every incentive to keep juggling those chickens and chainsaws as long as possible. Of course that means the financial collapse will be harder and deeper when it comes.

    Poached elephant would be more like it.

    And in the world of 2016 US politix saying one “wants a piece of ass” can be considered a hate crime (but I swear Commissar Lynch, I only meant I wanted to be a part of the Democratic party.)

    If we of the USSA are in for a slow drowning in quicksand then at least I want to see the establishment of several national and regional parties to help take down the vile and treasonous Establishment “two wings of the same bird.” (Pat Buchanan)

    A couple of national parties could easily be started based on race for both Blacks and Hispanics. They would certainly do better in the Congress voting as a block rather than being beholden to Establishment parties ( those NWO puppet government agents.)

    Regional parties could have a bright future with the Old South and mountain West having real historic and current economic, religious, cultural bonds that would give them sizable caucuses in the Congress and again could make all sorts of political bargains with the other smaller parties. Something more akin to a parliamentary system where the party in power must make a coalition to get anything done beside remaining in power.

    If we are, instead, doomed to a relatively soon EMP strike by Kim Jung Un, collapse of the world economic system, or a global Marburg pandemic, then political parties are just a vestigal organ of a once great, powerful nation-state and it won’t matter a whit who sits in the Oval Office.

    “Gird up now thy loins like a man, for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me”. The bible.

    Change the above to “for it will be Hillary”.

    The polls show her up by 9 to 12 points in places, and by 4 t0 5 in many others. Maybe Trump’s triumph last night hasn’t fully settled in.

    The media and the machine have savaged Trump, and will continue to do so. Democrats knocking on doors in my neighborhood, no Republicans.

    I said it years ago; “Sonofabitch”. “Stop Obama now or face awful, big, intense, tragic consequences hereafter”.

    One of those consequences is the further entrenchment of the Democratic machine, with roots now so deep they couldn’t be pulled up by a giant, big bucket excavator.

    With all his radical associations, even with his talk of forming his own “army” and RADICALLY transforming America, Obama wasn’t stopped.

    Of course both candidates will have the choice to confront or deny the major issues facing us, issues so eloquently described by our host. For the most part, those issues will be denied.

    So the cycle of crashes and recovery will occur, with the mantra always being growth to recover, until we simply can’t grow anymore.

    It’s not to early to ask; “What will happen if Hillary is elected?”
    As most of us might guess, a lot of hand wringing, a lot of finger pointing, a lot of muttering and stuttering, a lot of moaning and groaning, but not much else. Obama’s election already proved that.

    And so we will sink into the cesspool of the left, and deal with “The Long Emergency” while enveloped in an everlasting stench.

  33. Frankiti October 10, 2016 at 3:36 pm #

    “If there is one outstanding upshot of these “debates” it must be their staggering failure to reassure the American public that they can expect effective leadership through the hardships ahead. There must be many others out there like myself wondering who will emerge from the rubble? I suspect it will be someone we haven’t heard of before, just as Bonaparte was unheard of in France in 1792. This is not entirely a nation of clowns, though it feels like that lately.”

    This paragraph succinctly demonstrates the problem with the system.

    First, what kind of person sincerely expects leadership, let alone an effective variety, from a politician, or from a person willing to debase themselves in the American political realm? Has it occurred to anyone that the appropriate people are simply not allowed to enter, are politely discouraged? The last round of Wikileaks further exposed the narrative that Trump was “allowed” and “supported” in the beginning because he was regarded as an easy opponent in the end.

    We are in the rubble. Is this not clear? You see what is crawling from it. This is not a nation of clowns, because it is a state of clowns. Their is no American nation, if there ever was. It has long since vanished. We are living in a country without a nation, and we will see this when Hillary tries to marshall support for war against Russia in the near future. I certainly hope she requires her illegal alien voting base to register for selective service.

        The thing is, people that pay attention, that are aware of how the story unfolds, knew this exact sort of thing would happen. They also knew it would work. The Clinton pivot. The orchestrated diversion. There will be more. They will work.

        You see, despite a multitude of websites, just like this one, haunted by pseudo-intellectuals and WordPress pundits, you are still left with a dummy at the core. Perhaps there is a sheepskin from some land grant college, or some retirement autodidact’s library, but through and through, you still have the unwashed an unlearned. The easily manipulated. Distraction is a muscle-memory bred in deep through poor parenting and poor schools. From lives poor in many ways.

        And they know this. They know the hardwired faults. Working and middle class people live off of distractions. It’s what gets them through Monday to Friday. The weekend fishing trip, watching people chase inflatable balls all Sunday on TV, Friday happy hour binge drinking; all of these distractions from their depressingly banal lives.
        Every day.
        Dopamine feeds the dopes. A week’s worth of media fulmination delivers the appropriate dose.They not only chase it, they crave it.
        They believe it.

        It’s expensive, feeding the dummies. Fortunately, Hillary has many wealthy friends willing to pay for the grub. This is what wins elections.
        They know it.
        Some of us know it.

        It’s the programming fed to people programmed from birth.
        Do all right at school.
        Go to college.
        Get a degree.
        Get a job. A job that pays bills.
        That’s all you need.
        Find a gal.
        A gal that wants to settle down.
        Preferably in the burbs.
        Get a mortgage.
        Keep that head down and nose on the grindstone.
        Have kids.
        Hope they’re geniuses, know they’re unremarkable.
        Spend time and money trying to make them better… better than you.

          Maybe I’m lucky, but I realized what the world had planned for me when I was in college, and I rebelled against it. I once had an office job that was extremely secure. I could have gone along with the establishment, stayed 40 years, had a nice 401k, excellent benefits and and retired at 62. But I just couldn’t do it because I wouldn’t have been true to myself. I knew it was all bullshit; I would have destroyed myself. Instead, I quit, not knowing what I’d do next. I took the insecure road and have never, ever looked back. Happily.

          Frankiti, at the time I had that job, I wrote down what my life would be like continuing as I was doing, and I came up with a life just as you described above. I just want to tell you that your post resonated with me, and why.

    Trump, having apologized for his words of a decade ago, said that the publication of the record is an attempt to distract voters’ attention from the really serious problems facing the United States, and, judging by the voter’s, they agree with him, not with the hypocrites of the Republican Party elite. In any case, even after this scandal, experts in opinion polls from Fox5 channel could not outrun their colleagues from CNN and attribute to Clinton’s advantage of more than 5%.

    But they seriously calculated using these figures to convince Trump to withdraw his candidacy, but he angrily rejected such a possibility, and promised in return to raise the question of the relation of Hillary Clinton to the victims of sexual violence. And he hinted that it’s not just about her protection of her husband, who almost became impeached in connection with the “non-sexual” relationship with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office of the White House and is related to the recording of a young lawyer, Hillary Clinton, that recently appeared on the Internet.

    In this record, Hillary Clinton, laughing, said on the sidelines of the court that, after her client was able to pass polygraph test to prove his innocence, she lost all confidence in this device.

    The problem is that this client was accused of raping a 12-year-old girl and a lawyer, Hillary Clinton won the case, accusing the victim of immoral behavior and almost of prostitution. As a result, the girl was hospitalized in a psychiatric institution, the rapist was freed to repeat his crime, and the lawyer, who achieved this 40 years ago, now is trying to break into the White House, trying using anecdotal accusations not just to win against Donald Trump, but also to prevent a serious discussion of the problems, facing the United States.

    Hey Cold,

    I read your Defending the Indefensible link from top to bottom – ‘Nice’ – and see two of my fingerprints in it:

    . many many people
    . brother in law Peter

    Thanks for thinking of me.

    But, getting back to PussyGate, I think the opprobrium has been overdone. We all know that Trump is a liar and an Olympic Gold exaggerator. If he had been groping the peeps of every pretty woman he ever met I think we would have heard about it before now.

    Of course now that the pussy is out of the bag, every woman and her sister will be claiming they were groped by The Donald (a la Cosby) and it will be a feather in their cap and affirmation that they are irresistibly ‘pretty.’ Even where it is true some women may have been flattered by the brazen animal attentions of a rich and powerful man (even if he is actually dead broke).

    BTW, you should NOT take it that I am supporting Trump. As I stated ages ago, I will not be voting at all.

        I use “gentle vetting” (as opposed to Trump’s “extreme vetting”) … so as to make my gentle voter registration efforts most effective to defeat Trump… and have fun doing it.

        YMMV. Deadlines vary by state.

    Look at the old clips, the women loved Trump and threw themselves at him. Indeed, he could do just about anything – and with their obvious consent. Money, Fame, Power – these are catnip to women. The middle aged women who are trashing Trump are forgetting how they may well have done the same thing in their youth with Rock Stars. Slightly different scene, but essentially the same thing. But since they are no longer desired or desirable, such activities are now distasteful to them – if even remembered. As I said, hypocrisy comes very easy to women and their memories are often very selective in their own favor.

      Janos, you bring up an interesting observation. What did happen to all those groupies who were driven by their own notions to “service” rock stars after their performances? I would hardly imagine their worshiping at the crotches of the rock stars led to any kind of relationship. Are they now leading religion classes at church? Clerking at Dollar stores? Sitting on corporate boards? What sort of politics do they now have? Do they feel a kinship with the female politicos of the current day? What is there opinion now of men? How do they perceive themselves? I’d like to know.

    The stupefying thing about the debates last night (Sunday, 2016 Oct 9) was not the two candidates (who included professional tear-jerker Clinton), but the audience of “undecideds.”  They were the most embarrassingly moronic gaggle of viewers ever to expose themselves on national TV.  The final question was from a cretin who asked what each candidate found nice in the other.  As if such a question had anything whatsoever to do with running any nation, let alone the U.S.  So now we know that snowflakes are going to decide the election.  They will, of course, elect the Demonic Party’s insane banshee who will cause the country to veer off into World War Three.  До свидания, Америка!

    The Fly of Fate

    It’s amazing, but, judging by the blogs of my New York friends, after all the shit that has landed on them within the past several days, the greatest impression on them made a fly that landed on Hillary’s face.

    Reminds me of an old Jewish anecdote:

    — Moesha, you’ve got a fly on your face
    — Haim, are you telling me that I am a piece of shit?
    — No, ‘course not! I’m just telling you that the flies know where they wanna land

    Frankiti said: You think you choose. You thought you chose. You never did.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t you on record as stating you will vote for Trump in order to collapse the whole thing quicker? If so, considering the All-Knowing Panopticon you have described with your latest comment, don’t you think your strategy has been factored in just as the Stock Market has already factored in a potential Trump “win” in November? Or are you the only one who has a free choice and the rest of us are Programmed Automatons?

    FYI, I’m not discounting your view, I think there is much merit in what you say, but with the added caveat that neither you nor me are an exception to the rule, but instead, we are part of the rule. Our response has been programmed and accounted for. There is no way out. There is only in — maybe for all eternity if we are perpetually born into the same existence over and over again.

      Let me elaborate a bit. Perhaps there are a few amongst us who have taken it upon ourselves to feel around in the dark of Plato’s Cave. It then necessarily follows that we compare what we’re feeling with the Shadow Play on the cave wall, and what do you know, it doesn’t match up. The shadows are a gross misrepresentation or worse yet, not a representation at all of the reality that hides in the Darkness just beyond the limits of sight. Considering that, there are those amongst us in this comments section and everywhere you search high and low on The Net and elsewhere but increasingly The Net who’s job it is to prevent and mitigate the Cave Dwellers from feeling around in the Dark, or if they do, to rip their hands off so they can feel no more. These Centurions are responsible for maintaining everyone’s focus on the misrepresentative Shadow Play on the cave wall, and as part of that, they denigrate and marginalize any & all who divert their attention from that Shadow Play drama to discover what lurks in the Darkness. That has been my experience. It is very real. It is happening. There are concomitant alternate realities and the one presented by the Social Engineers has no credibility whatsoever.

      We are witnessing a gross miscalculation. Trump was never to make it past November. The party would sabotage and abandon him. JHK was correct. The deep state would assasinate him. It’s a character assasination of an already maligned character. They are not finished. They will leave him for dead going in to November.
      This was calculated, most assuredly.

      • Cold N. Holefield October 11, 2016 at 8:48 am #

        I think you may be right. Look at Karl Rove when they have him on to discuss his perspective about all of this. He’s as Cool as a Cucumber. Unflappable. He simply isn’t concerned. This is the guy who Masterminded Dubya as POTUS — something I thought they could never pull off — selling Dubya to the Polity. In fact, I’d say Rove is enjoying it.

        If Trump was anointed POTUS by The Elite, it could only be by design, and Good God Almighty, if that’s the design, can you imagine what the next eight years will look like if he’s the face of it? Say what you want about Hitler — he didn’t engage in Locker Room Banter and he didn’t grab pussy. Maybe he grabbed a bit of dick every now & then (his own, mainly, but perhaps another man’s occasionally as well), but never pussy.

        The Horror. The Horror.

        The Elite are truly insane — I believe that at this point. They are Insane Psychopaths. In the next eight years or more, their indifference to us Pests may turn to outright Malevolence, and if the High Fructose Corn Syrup Infused Ken Bone (I bet he’s Janos) is any indication, there will be no defense.

    “The man sitting at the table head beside Bruce Montgomery was bald – defiantly bald, as if he was proud of his baldness, bald to the point that I could not help wonder whether he ever grew any hair. On his head was crawling a fly, but he did not pay any attention to it. I shuddered just seeing that fly, with reckless impudence strolling along the bare pink skull. While it was there strolling, I literally felt on my own skin stalking, repulsive to the extreme tingling of its feet.

    THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM

    Donald Trump, based on his last debate, is acting as a Ruusian agent to undermine our democratic elections. The proof is Trump’s continued denial te Russians are hacking the US elections… even after receiving intelligence briefings acknowledging high confidence (90%) that Russia is behind the hacking. We kill people based on good confidence (75%). Trump is either wittingly or unwittingly (useful idiot) acting on behalf of Russia … acting against the US.

    320 polls from 42 pollsters confirm Trump is a wounded elephant. Hillary is now leading Trump by 7% nationwide, higher in some swing states. It’s over. Slowly, with a weeks’ long building momentum, Clinton is destroying Trump. It may be the biggest landslide ever, with Clinton in control of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Clinton in control of the House of Representatives, Clinton in control of the Senate, Clinton in control of the composition of the Supreme Court, Clinton in control of the armed forces as the US Commander in Chief.

    The future is feminine. Masculine testosterone has gotten us into our world in crisis. Jill or Hillary will have to turn it around.

That’s why Nigel Farage was at the Debate the other night in St. Louis and Happy As A Lark afterward when he was interviewed. Whatever you wish upon anyone else, you in turn will get your fair share of it. Globalization has ensured that very basic & essential fact. If you wish genocide upon a people, you wish for your own death sentence.

    I’m guessing Bill’s getting excited about the new White House Interns. Word on the street is, Epstein has some great candidates lined up for Bill to choose from, and of course, age is of no concern because, as we know, when you’re famous you can do whatever you want to women — and girls as well.

      If you don’t generalize, you can’t say anything about anything. If you don’t generalize, you can’t even think to yourself. We’d still be back in the mud huts of Matriarchy.

      Think Barb – if you can. This is meta-thinking or thinking about thinking. Piaget’s formal operational. Not everyone gets here. Many stop at Concrete Operational or thinking about things. First step for you? Admit you are generalizing all the time, say about Men. Or about Republicans.

      So the question is not whether to generalize or not generalize – it’s to generalize well, not make 10% into 80% for example.

      Some women never get to the stage of throwing themselves at famous men. They are either too discerning – or they know they wouldn’t stand a chance in the competition. Needless to say, they don’t admit the latter. Any woman who could be so honest would be extraordinary and worth knowing.

    In the second debate, Hillary experienced the strongest knockdown after Donald Trump on the question about his Vice, “who required US military intervention in Syria,” said that he after the vice presidential debate “did not talk to Pence, and does not agree with him on this issue” .

    It was a clear message to those who urged him to hold back his wit and fighting qualities in the first televised debate and push hard on the brakes, that the laws of war are coming into effect, and they could have their brakes shove up the place, which in the case of a contingency will be affected more than other parts of the body. And they forced the anchors of the second televised debate, who actually were the seconds of Hillary, to throw a towel into the ring.

    And I have a suspicion that very brave and drastic actions by Vladimir Putin yesterday and today are due to the fact that he, too, watched the debates real time and came to the same conclusion.

    And to give weight to my conclusions, I would like to remind how all were skeptical when I said in June that Hillary Clinton had seized power in the United States. And now these merry fellows in connection with the events in Syria are forced to come up with the unsubordinated generals in the Pentagon, who wanted to spit on the current head of the State Department and especially on President Obama, whom Hillary is just using as an object of her personal hygiene.

    Meanwhile, all that unorthodox behavior of generals is in fact the implementation of the wishes or if you want orders by Hillary Clinton’s, which she not particularly hiding was giving for the last 6 years through the media, always ensuring their implementation.

    Hillary certainly seized power in the US not by herself, but with the help of standing behind her pseudo-religious sect, which I call Western Black Project and which Hillary called upon at the beginning of a televised debate by proclaiming the spell: “We are great, because we are good!”, for which there is a response spell: “we are good because we are Great!”.

      One of these things is not like the other: dog, horse, car, cat, human. Which is it? To solve it you must generalize what all the others have in common. See how it works?

      Just for the civilized and not for noble savages? Then how could they ever know which plant was poisonous and which good to eat? Which animal was dangerous and which not? In other words, if every impression was a completely new experience, they wouldn’t survive. So they generalize: this plant looks a lot like that good one I ate last night. I’m going to take the wild but calculated leap of faith that it’s the same type or species. Species is a generalization you see.

    Hey Peter Harris, for an example of gormless, besides the NASCAR Fans, take a look at CNN right now. Hillary Clinton & Al Gore are giving a Stump Speech about Climate Change in Miami and what Hillary plans on doing about it. Look at the audience cheering behind them as Hillary & Al lie through their teeth. That is the epitome of gormless, and that audience is about as diversified as you can get and they are part of the “American Public” to which you refer. A large part of it, as a matter of fact — especially in Miami which could hardly be characterized as a haunt for Poor White Trash. Is it compassionate to say a retarded person deserves to have their lunch money stolen? I don’t think it is — and yet that’s precisely what’s going on with that speech. Hillary & Al are reaching into the pockets of the audience’s current and future progeny and taking everything except their gormlessness.

    Hillary lied when she said Hurricane Mathew wouldn’t have been as destructive had it not been for Climate Change. That is incontrovertible speculation. There is no evidence, and no the science has not been settled, that rising CO2 leads to Climate Change let alone a change in the frequency and intensity of Tropical Storms and/or Hurricanes.

    This speech is a precursor to Carbon Trading (which is a Carbon Tax that will paid for by The Little People) that will be implemented full force during her eight years as POTUS. It’s yet another way for the Ridiculously Wealthy to attain even more wealth as they drive the rest of the planet into deeper poverty. They come as Saviors to Pick Your Gormless Pockets.

    She was fearmongering by telling the residents of Miami that in 100 years Florida will be underwater. Okay, if that’s so Hillary, why do you support Open Borders where The World can immigrate to America and settle in Florida so the population triples or quadruples in that time span? Is it because Moloch wants as many people to drown as possible when that time comes so its instructions to you are to pack Florida like a Cattle Car on its way to the Gas Chambers?

    Unbelievable!!! Not really, though. It’s to be expected. Gormless. Yeah, it’s an excellent word that has gone out of style. It’s time to take it off the shelf, dust it off and use it with much more frequency, although, after today, I’ll probably forget about it and never use it again.

      It’s all nonsense and people seeing what they want to see. Trump insists he has a secret plan to defeat ISIS, while also building his campaign on criticizing Clinton for voting for the Iraq war. So which is it, does he want more war in the Middle East or less? The answer is, whatever serves his purposes in the moment. There is no center to the man, no knowing what he will actually do once in office.

      As for taking on the financial industry, undoing Citizens United, etc., more nonsense. Trump is a billionaire opportunist whose first and last interest is serving himself. He discovered early in the Republican primaries how to gain popularity by saying whatever got him cheers, riding the wave of applause to the nomination. If he actually gets into office he’ll face the same well-financed wall of incentives and disincentives as any president. This billionaire narcissist will not take on other billionaires — not if there is the slightest cost to himself.

        • Elrond Hubbard October 12, 2016 at 2:21 pm #

          Nixon’s ‘secret plan’ was an electoral ruse to use the war to defeat the Democrats. The Nixon campaign made back-door contact with the south Vietnamese government to reject a peace plan that was on the table at that time and wait for a better one under Nixon. Once in office, Nixon and Kissinger bombed southeast Asia to the point of insanity and still lost.

          tl;dr – Politicians’ loudly-declared ‘secret plans’ are bullshit until proven otherwise. This was never more true than in Trump’s case.

      Wpac,
      Your statement is so out of touch with reality that it proves your claim as a woman. Men know that in all males, there is a 16 year old hiding just under the adult veneer. It’s the BillClintonAnthonyWeinerBillCosby disease. I don’t mean to say that women are out of touch with reality, but, rather, that they have no idea what a male thinks/says/does in the presence of other 16 year olds (of any age). Don’t argue with me…this is not a theory, but an absolute.

      Dick jokes, fart jokes, jokes about bodily functions…hardly a woman’s venue. Permit me an example;

      Guy goes into his doctors office for a yearly exam. At the end of the exam, the doctor tells the patient to drop his pants for a prostate exam…they guy does so, and the Doctor says…”you know, it is not unusual to achieve an erection during this procedure”…the guy says to the doctor, “I don’t have an erection…”, and the doctor replies…”yes, but I do”.

          No, he meant down 15,000. What does it matter if the majority of people don’t have any skin in that Game? People should be cheering if the Stock Market plunged to zero. It means the Owners of the World no longer own the World, but they could still blow it up as part of their Samson Option, I suppose. If THEY can’t own it, no one can.

            “if the Stock Market plunged to zero. It means the Owners of the World no longer own the World”

            please revise this statement.

            if shareholders own shares currently trading at zero, they still own the company; it’s just that can’t get money for transferring their ownership at that time.

            My health is just fine, Home Slice, but your WEALTH? Let’s just say — it’s in Jeopardy. Use it or lose it and investing in the Stock Market is not using it, it’s using & exploiting people. Invest your wealth in people, REAL PEOPLE, and maybe when the time comes, it can be credited against your sentence. Same goes for your friends, especially Michael Corasaniti.

            Most investment is in assets which produce wealth. The other end of your rent and other liabilities.

            Stocks are a place to park excess profits between those investments.

    Chris Christie one step closer to being imprisoned. Turns out Christie and one of his senior aides talked about the plan to close lanes to the George Washington Bridge before the political revenge scheme was implemented, and then again as it was unfolding.

    When the hell will you learn you f*c*i*g Assclown that the DJIA is a meaningless indicator of the economy? Everyone knows the more meaningful measure is the Baltic Dried Fruit Index. Jeez. Talk about what gives meaning to peoples’ lives — I don’t know what you would do with yourself if you weren’t myopically & obsessively analyzing the vicissitudes of the Stock Market. You treat it as though it’s a deck of Tarot Cards.

    • JimInFlorida October 12, 2016 at 7:26 am #

      Rookie…., the Dow is a PSYCHOLOGICAL TOTEM. That gives it greater power than the Baltic Dry Index. The container ships can all be sunk but, if the Dow is good, then We Teh Sheep are at rest.

      Superstition is alive and well. Pray to Wall Street to fight the darkening of the sky and cause the Sun to come out again!

        Rookie. Not just psychological. A majority have skin in the game.
        Fifty-five percent of Americans are invested in the stock market. 70% of them lost money in 2015.

        • JimInFlorida October 12, 2016 at 2:48 pm #

          As always wpa, you deliberately misrepresent things. Yes, 55% of Americans are invested in the stock market but, only as a desperate measure to compensate for the lack of deposit interest in risk-free savings accounts. It is NOT the real physical economy but, the Casino where our futures are gambled in the hopes of a payoff.

          The Sheep are grazing in toxic pastures of “investment” because Clintonomics destroyed the reward for savings in the bank. The whole concept of “investment” is completely divorced from when money was actually loaned towards production; for the purpose of collecting reliable and regular dividends from those loans.

          It’s money chasing money and nothing worthwhile is accomplished. THAT’S why the Dow is a psychological totem and not the true measure of anything. We hope and pray that Wall Street can steal, kill, and destroy enough to keep our miserable “investments” intact and maybe make headway.

          I completely understood Cold N’s Baltic Dry Index and made a harmless snark. You, wpa, just showed that you don’t get it.

    It should be obvious to everyone with more than a brainstem at this point that Trump is a Trojan Horse delivering the nomination to his good friends The Clintons. He has destroyed the Republican Party in the meantime ensuring we have One Party Rule in these perilous times. The two parties were always two sides of the same coin, but now it’s time to toss the coin and replace it with a boot on your neck. And you Rubes fell for it. Too Funny. The joke, once again, is on you. It’s too easy — like taking candy from babies or pelting toddlers with rocks as they play in their playpens. This is why Karl Rove is not concerned and is enjoying it — he knows his vested interests are secured. Your vested interests? You don’t have any and never will, so it’s not even a consideration. You’re being fattened up as a sacrifice to Moloch like steroid & antibiotic infused chickens smashed together in an overcrowded chicken coop. How Bohemian of them.

      I’m obviously not the only one to think this as the following article indicates. Note, however, that the linked article below is from 2011. Trump has had nearly six years to perfect himself as a Trojan Horse. Not to worry — after he accomplishes his mission of destroying the Republican Party and ushering in an era of In-Your-Face-Boot-On-Your-Neck One Party Rule he will then demand you watch all the successful Reality Show Spinoffs he’ll be starring in resulting from his Trojan Horse Schtick and The People will watch with their Doritos and Diet Coke in hand and the boot on their necks like little kids watching Cars for the first time. Idiocracy, like Wall-E, is a Documentary and has arrived.

      As I’ve always said, We Teh Slaves may vote for the propaganda we like. We can no more vote directly for POTUS than Joe Sixpack can vote for the CEO of GE or Apple or any other corporation. Even our Congress and Senate “reps” DO NOT REPRESENT US. They represent The Corporation TO US. Top down; not us to them.

      The “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC.” is a semi-private C*O*R*P*O*R*A*T*I*O*N and resides in a foreign city-state called, Washington DC. We haven’t been the organic union of the several States since 1861. The purpose of a Corporation is to make money for its shareholders. Not ONE of We Teh Slaves is a shareholder. We are even less than subjects before the Federal Government.

      Therefore, we cannot vote for POTUS because we are DEJURE SLAVES, albeit with many material privileges. BTW, before GW Bush, we were dejure SERFS but, I digress…

      We cannot own property. Not even your car is yours. However, our relative material comforts enable us to conform to the demands of The Matrix. Our purpose is to consume on debt. We are free to eat what we like at McDonalds, watch what we like on TV, rant on CFN, and buy what we like at Wal-Mart.

      But, your lack of RIGHTS will be fully visible when the Feds take notice of you for any reason! To function in The Matrix, you must surrender your rights and sign contracts to gain access.

    Rookie. The Wealthiest 5% own 70% of the Stock Market. Considering that, it’s a safe assumption the Wealthiest 10% own ~ 90% of the Stock Market, so, once again, you are a Deceiver. The Wealthiest Americans, i.e. the ones who OWN the Wealth of the Nation, are the ONLY ones with a MATERIAL vested interest in the Stock Market. The Ownership Society Reagan & Clinton touted never came to fruition because it was never intended to come to fruition — it was always Lip Service from two sides of the same Phony Coin.

    “You don’t have to be a husband or a father to hear what we heard just a few days ago and say, ‘That’s not right,’” Obama said. “You just have to be a decent human being to say that’s not right.”

    Earlier Tuesday, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Obama considers Trump’s remarks “repugnant” and agrees with Vice President Joe Biden’s assessment that Trump was referencing sexual assault.

    Trump, meanwhile, has brushed off his comments as “locker room talk” as Trump’s support plummeted among Republicans, conservatives, Mormons, and Protestant evangelicals who do not approve of Trump’s history of sexual assault, marital rape, and statutory rape. Nor do they approve of Trump’s bragging about it after the fact.

    • sprawlcapital October 12, 2016 at 2:16 pm #

      White House press secretary Josh Earnest wears a earpiece. While standing at the podium answering questions from reporters, he takes long pauses to listen to the voice in his earpiece telling him what to say next. I’m 99.9% certain of this. It’s so obvious.

      I think Joshey’s Boss does the same thing.

It has to be, otherwise, the person feeding him the answers would be the Press Secretary. It’s not like these people have to look aesthetically pleasing anymore. Look at Hillary. She’s a Sight For Sore Eyes and yet she’s going to be the next POTUS. So, what gives? I guess we aren’t ready for HAL 9000 to step up to the podium just yet.

    Yes, Occam’s Razor. The Stasi utilized the appeal to Occam’s Razor quite often, as in always, I would imagine.

    I suppose the fraudulent bill we received this week from the Anesthesiologist for my son’s knee operation is Occam’s Razor too, even though it was only my son who has been targeted by this fraud. It’s a pretty big deal. The Information Systems of the various physicians involved in the procedure have been breached & compromised, and yet my son, or we his parents actually, are the only ones to have received any fraudulent invoices. My wife was astute enough not to pay it or provide any credit card information and instead called the Anesthesiologist’s office only to find out that the invoice is a fake. Their internal investigation is now underway, their Risk Management Department has been engaged as well as LE & their Attorneys who will be contacting us throughout the week for additional information. My guess is they will never find the culprit because the culprit is the Intelligence Services, aka the American Stasi. If it was a True Fraud by common criminals, many patients would have received fraudulent invoices, but we’re the only one. We were specifically targeted by these Rogue Nutjobs that are paid with your tax dollars and via their Black Budget Operations to include the sale of Heroin and proceeds from Human Sex Trafficking.

Nah, I know, she loves me despite me having no money and no career and no prospects. Try that with your wife, if you have one, and see how much she loves you then or any woman. That’s the True Test. Lose EVERYTHING. Forego it all and see if those you thought loved you still love you. I’m willing to bet you won’t be as loved as you think you will or as much as you think you’re loved now.

            You provided nothing but a crutch. They love you for your money, that is all. It’s not True Love, if there is such a thing. You know you’re not adequate otherwise. Money is the only way people will love you when it’s not love at all — only the feigning of it. So, you do whatever it takes, including murder if that’s what it takes, to have money. And then you make everyone around you beholden to you by playing Sugar Daddy with your ill-gotten gains. Not me, I won’t do that to those I love. They are learning to stand on their own two feet without a Sugar Daddy to cheat them to the front of the line like you do with your children and your wife.

Hey dannyboy, does your home have all the latest bells & whistles just like Fred Trump’s palace in Queens? How many times have you bailed your children out of jail via your connections? Have they been to Military School? Finishing School?

            My brother-in-law’s best friends are the wealthiest people in a notable Deep South Port City and their progeny, let alone them, live like Queens since they’re all women now. They are supported by their parents and the matriarch of the family, their grandmother. Their living expenses alone not to mention any “luxuries” above and beyond that are ~$300k per year and they don’t have any children of their own yet. They live in Manhattan. Spoiled Brats. College Educated but none of them do anything that requires a college education except spend ludicrous amounts of money while people starve and go homeless.

            This same wealthy family, thee wealthiest in a certain notable Deep South Port City, would never deign to invest in a business my wife & I would like to own and operate together, but they’ve given gobs of dough to the State of Israel. The wealthy and their money — they don’t ever really give it away or invest in others — they grow it by taking it from The Little People.

    Rather than participate in the heap-big egotist & narcissistic food fight currently being engaged in by Cold (look-at-me Jim Kunstler gave me a gold star) N. Holefield) and dannyboy (That arrogant, so-much-better-than yoo Pluticrat Heeb Noo Yawka, )
    how about we make dibs on the pieces parts of the elephant that is the central theme of the Clusterfuck Nation missive.

    I say JHK gets 80% of the tusks for a nice set of pistol grips for the Colt 1911 he has secretly tucked under his bed for when things get a little rough, and for the piano keys I think he tickles on occasion. The current cultural environment in America goes best with some rinky-dink piano music like what used to be played in saloons and whorehouses of the old West.

    Janos gets a couple of inches of ivory only, for the horns he will fashion – cuckold horns – the kind he is fond of bestowing on liberals and faux conservatives alike, as a nice Halloween gift: come as you really are because that is what is realy scarey.

    wpa-ccc gets the full contents of the elephants intestinal tract reflective of his/her/its participation at CFN and the rest of quotidian reality.

    Q-Shtick gets one leg of the venerable diseased elephant to turn into a telephone table.

    Now who else is deserving of a piece? Frankiti? Volodya? Capt Spaulding? BarbisBest? BerylofOyl?…..all CFNers are eligible for a piece – for curtains, gloves, boots and of course steaks. However don’t let out host JIm K know. INstead let the wonderful folks at the RNC know because they are going to get the vile corpse after the necropsy which will occur Nov. 9.

    In the end, however, even The Donald will have to choose between the American People (pre-1965 demographics) or, the TPTB.

    If Donald chooses TPTB, his soul will be snatched out of him at a most inopportune time, torn apart, and distributed among the various punishments in the Eighth Circle of Hell, as described by Dante.

    Hey Colin, I get your protest…pretty much… I really do. Even as a school kid, saluting the flag and pledging allegiance always felt a bit perfunctory if not phony, but I did it anyway. Worse yet was having to read a passage from the Bible when it was my turn. Almost everyone chose the 23rd psalm…you could hardly go wrong with the 23rd psalm. If there were any non-Christians they kept their mouths shut. People didn’t stir shit up in those days.

    I doubt kids are even ALLOWED to read from the Bible in this day and age but if they were, being older and wiser now, I would choose something really juicy and inflammatory…..like the bit about women being subservient to their husbands…..or something about burning in hell for all eternity for pulling your pud. I don’t know if that’s actually IN the Bible but it probably is.

    Remember “Hands Across America”? No? Well of course not. That was 30 years ago and you hadn’t even been conceived yet. A long chain of people held hands up and down Main St. in every burg and hamlet in the country but I just couldn’t bring myself to participate. It just seemed so phony……had nothing to do with racial injustice or anything of the sort. It was not a protest, it was a feel good opportunity. A lot of people love that sort of thing. Of course the sense of camaraderie petered out within days if not hours, and look at us now, back to being at one another’s throats.

    But, as I say, Colin, don’t stand with your hand over your heart. Take the knee as you contemplate your average annual $19 million salary for warming the bench, waiting for the starting QB to have his collar bone broken.

    But, in all seriousness, for GOD’S SAKE please get a fucking HAIRCUT. You couldn’t look more ridiculous!

    The size of Hillary’s lead over Trump is more proof of the failure of the minor regional player to influence the US elections. Putin FAIL.

    Big question whether Putin would really prefer Trump to Clinton, after all, Putin may not be as sympathetic in general to US as, for instance, I am. May be he, too, would prefer to let Hillary to run US quickly to the ground as she fully intends to do.

    Putin’s main concern is to intercept the strategic initiative, like for instance he is doing with the Plutonium Ultimatum, or in battleground Syria with the new S300 complexes. And he’s succeeding, while America is busily making an ass out of itself.

    Rumors from Sandersistas

    Vatican leaked information about the interception of radio communications between the base of the Iranians in Baghdad and three hundred NATO commandos, sitting in Aleppo.

    If within 24 hours a truce will not be declared, the commandos intend to surrender and hand over the organizers of the Arab Spring with all the giblets, including the organizers of the green, cedar, lotus and purple revolutions. But most importantly, the organizers will hand over the organizers of the second orange revolution (Ukraine). This will be a great gift to Trump for his third presidential debate on October 19.

    Russian military analysts say that the jihadists keep American military advisers hostages in Aleppo and it is the main cause of media hysteria against Russia.

    Western politicians can not convince jihadists to release advisers from Aleppo, and they can be under the strikes of the legitimate Syrian government troops and Russian Air Force. And it’s not nice.

    Cannibals are blackmailing the Western elite that support them secretly. Again Anglo Saxons lost control and instead of puppeteers turned into the puppets of Islamic extremists.

    Speaking of Plutonium Ultimatum, US really should’ve contracted Russia to build that MOX plant in South Carolina.

    But then, these wasted 7 billion dollars would remain in the US budget and the plant would be processing plutonium rods for US nuclear power plants, which will soon ran out of fuel, and the theme of the Kremlin plutonium counter-sanctions not even been able to appear in the most desperate heads of super-turbo professional patriots.

    Our American friends never look for the easy way out and simple solutions: the road to the disco in the neighboring village they always navigate over the Himalayas.

    By indirect actions Kremlin will now decide how and what and at what stage will be spent not only the US defense budget, but not the small budget of the US Department of Energy. Obama/Clinton Administration dumped the entire US and Canadian uranium market into the Russian hands for unsubstantial (relatively speaking) bribes through the Clinton Foundation.

    Clintons not just sold the energy future of the United States, they sold it cheap

    Civil Defense drills with 40 million paricipants. Even with late USSR was never like this, and here we go again. Our American friends can not dig what I call the prewar strategy of nuclear ambiguity. This is where all joint operation collapsed, American control and exchange of information is fully terminated, the place of the dislocation of nuclear weapons and materials, and even phone numbers of all the participants, have changed.

    Americans themselves lost the technology to enrich uranium for nuclear power plants, South Carolina plant closed without producing a gram of fuel, free-of-charge Russian plutonium stocks are exhausted: they now secretly remove uranium from the ancient American ground rockets standing on duty, otherwise nuclear plants will stop. Nuclear bluff as a bluff with gold bullion is very profitable thing; we are not talking about measly 300%.

In the early years, circa ’70-’80’s there were no women. Everything was fair game. No subjects were off the table. Except someones cooking! Them’s fightin’ words! Not right or wrong but that was the way it was. Females have infiltrated the ranks and let me tell you from experience they like to dish it out (Super Nasty) but can’t take it. Call a man a fatass and he will blow it off or face ridicule. Grow a skin for cryin’ out loud. . Call a female a fatass and she takes it to heart. TFB. I have had females give me hugs at work or a neck message and promptly told them to knock it off. Just like there is no crying in baseball there is no hugging at the Firehouse.

    NEED A HOME? NOW YOU CAN 3-D PRINT ONE … OUT OF MUD

    The future of affordable (and sustainable) housing may lie with 3D printing. The World’s Advanced Saving Project (WASP) has unveiled the world’s largest delta-style 3D printer, which can build full-size buildings out of mud and clay for nearly zero cost. The massive BigDelta printer stands 12 meters tall (40 feet), and it’s nearly completed its first house at a cost of just 48 euros so far.

    Italian innovator Massimo Moretti launched WASP with the goal to “create a means for affordable fabrication of homes, and provide these means to the locals in poverty stricken areas.” WASP’s affordable housing solution combines 3D printing with biomimicry, drawing inspiration from the mud dauber wasp that constructs its home from one of the world’s oldest building materials: mud.

    WASP has come an impressively long way in a short span of time, especially considering that the company doesn’t receive any public financing. They revealed their four-meter tall BigDelta prototype last year, and now their first 3D printed home is nearly complete. The BigDelta printer builds thick walls, and it’s able to lay down 60 cm – 1 meter of material every day.

Obviously some Elite WASP families still believe in something – themselves as Class Tyrants. But America? Western Civilization? The White Race? Their Constituents? For them they have nothing.

    In my opinion, the whole “nucular war thing” with Russia is not quite a bluff, just a demonstration of very resolute intentions to go to the end, severe psychological attack on the enemy, short of actually doing the experimental verification.

    Russia definitely will not start a war – Americans just owe us too much to let them go that easily, Americans are simply in no position to start a war with Russia – the main Anglo Saxon principle of conducting the war is “They’re same numbers as we, let’s run away!”.

    Foolish Democrats & Liberals, letting the country be overrun by illegal aliens who bring with them diseases we had essentially eradicated. But Democrats have so few brains that they elect soulless ghouls to office to keep the flow of diseases coming into the country. Now add those diseases to the already weakened immune systems of the immoral leftists such as the author who bought into the entire “sex, drugs, rock and roll” nonsense, and one can see the beginning of what will truly destroy this nation as disease spreads like wild fire. But the Democrats who lust for power at the expense of all others could care less.

    One other note is that the author and so many on this blog have ranted about politicians and what they have done to this country, Wall Street’s corruption, etc. Trump is a non-politician and one who speaks out against Wall Street – yet the dyed-in-the-wool Democrats such as Mr. Kunstler and those on this site won’t vote for Trump.

      They also have a lack of self-confidence when it comes to developing their own process. They almost slavishly cede their beliefs to, or most often, assume those of, an “educated” “expert” on account of their inadequacy issues. Particularly if the expert’s CV includes one of the universities of preeminence.

The more banal and turgid their rhetoric, the more attractive they are. The more vapid and juvenile their lines, the more conservatives cite their strong sense of values and common sense e.g “We fight them over there so we don’t have to fight them over here” or “There you go again.” Horseshit stuff like that, they’ll raise a high school cheer over it.

    Russian Media: Russia created the first samples of weapons based on new physical principles

    Representatives of the United Instrument Corporation (DIC) announced the creation of the first samples of weapons based on new physical principles. The announcement was made on Thursday, 13 October to RIA Novosti. According to experts, the Russian defense industry tested systems that provide a directed energy impact on the avionics of aircraft, drones and precision-guided weapons.

    lenta.ru/news/2016/10/13/darkageoftechnology/

    So, that’s what scared the crew of USS Cole.

    As you know the new is well forgotten old. In this case everything points to the Tesla’s wave gun. It seems to be true and Putin hinted this morning about this, saying that necessity is the mother of invention, and serious progress in shock armaments, well-stimulated by Hillary in the 90 and 00s by the European missile defense, really has arrived.

    Sigh. There ain’t gonna be any nuclear war with Russia. Putin isn’t insane. A nuclear exchange would destroy Russia and probably the rest of the world. Anyone with even a smidgeon of brain power has to realize that exploding hundreds of nukes would cause EMPs, destroy food-production for centuries, poison water supplies, cause world-wide meltdowns of nuclear power plants and change our climate, probably for thousands of years.

    Sure, elites probably have the wherewithal to survive underground, or even above ground, but which of them would want to live out their lives in a fancy bunker, never breathing fresh air or feeling the sun on their faces? And who would they lord over? Fellow bunker-mates and starved, sick wretches who somehow survived? And how would they rule when they can’t live outside, except for brief periods in radiation suits? No, it won’t happen by planned attack.

    Accidents or miscues could occur, kind of setting off a semi-automatic nuclear response, but we’ve been living with that possibility for almost 70 years, so what is new about that scenario to suddenly cause us nightmares?

    Really, people, stop projecting your unsubstantiated fears onto the general population, lest you create a self-fulfilling prophesy.

        “Many here in the US are living in a financial fantasy-land. As you say, this can’t and won’t last forever, although many here in the US behave as if it will. A great many others are completely unaware of the true financial state of the US, so are oblivious to the need to protect what they have with hard assets.
        Reality has a way of teaching us all some pretty hard lessons. This will not be an exception. We all know that anything that is not sustainable will end. One would have to be pretty far from reality not to grasp the fact that the current system is not sustainable, so will end. The only question that most of us have is not “when” but “how”.

        The structural problems in the US economy have been papered over and patched up for a long time now. Nothing that was damaged prior to 2008 has been truly repaired. While that bought some time, that time does not seem to have been used productively or effectively. All the damage that showed us the true state of the economy in 2008 is still with us and has gotten worse with time, as big problems so often do when not addressed thoroughly and aggressively.

        The odds of a “soft landing” or other form of mild financial reset seem to shrink by the week. This leaves us with the increasing odds of a “hard landing”, which will be a terrifying, eye-opening, and impoverishing experience for a very large number of people.”

          Interesting choice of words

          given that the whole Peak Oil scare was based on using a few powerpoint slides to deny reality.

          and that this whole Trump thing was based on wild imaginings of world conspiracy, a mad-dog America, and declaration of nuclear war. Again, just the opposite of the real world.

          now, a bunch of folks with no financial experience (other than bitching about their finances) are setting out to deny that the world keeps on thru “Peak Oil”, “Political Insanity” and “Financial Whatever”

          It’s a good thing you commenters have it so correct, because you are so sure that everybody else has got it wrong.

    “This wasn’t just locker room banter. This was a powerful individual speaking freely and openly about sexually predatory behavior and actually bragging about kissing and groping women.”

    The first lady said she’d felt the impact of Trump’s words personally, as had other women.

    “The shameful comments about our bodies. The disrespect of our ambitions and intellect. The belief that you can do anything you want to a woman,” Michelle Obama said. “It is cruel. It is frightening. And the truth is, it hurts. It hurts.”

    “It’s like that sick, sinking feeling you get when you’re walking down the street, minding your own business, and some guy yells out vulgar words about your body. Or when you see that guy at work that stands just a little too close, stares a little too long and makes you feel uncomfortable in your own skin,” she continued. “It’s that feeling of terror and violation that too many women have felt when someone has grabbed them or forced himself on them and they’ve said no, but he didn’t listen.”

    Trump is threatening to sue the women who speak about his sexual assault behavior toward them. Trump is threatening to sue newspapers who report on Trumps sexual predation. Threatening, not suing.

    I expect Trump to ACTUALLY file in court… just after he releases his tax returns.

    Trump has a history of legal intimidation. According to USA Today, Trump and his businesses have been involved in 3,500 lawsuits over the years, easily making him the most litigious presidential candidate of all time.

    • wpa_ccc October 13, 2016 at 2:50 pm #

      Trump previously threatened legal action against the Times after the newspaper published a bombshell account of his tax returns earlier this month.

      And even if Trump does sue, he’ll stand little chance in the courts.

    Beantownbill,

    Of course I need to apologize for picking up on you; I know that it is quite useless to talk with Americans about the price that America could pay for its artistry in Ukraine and Syria. They just clap their eyes and delicately wait when you quit carry your Russian, Communist propaganda, and then return to the original topic, so if you did not say anything.

    Americans simply can not imagine that there are limits to the America military power, and even the threat of a nuclear war can not shake this confidence. According to them, Russia simply does not dare to throw a challenge to the almighty US, and when I say that Russia in its new military doctrine openly warned that in case of a threat to the State reserves the right to pre-emptive nuclear strike, their faces once again receive this bored expression – you keep on bubbling, body.

    We’re in the middle of the worst military-political crisis in the modern history, much worse than Caribbean missile crisis, and America does not even have well-defined control-and-command structure, when Pentagon two days after State Department signed a deal on Syria, sabotaged the hell out of it.

    • beantownbill. October 13, 2016 at 5:09 pm #

      Since when do words preempt action? Words are just words- until someone acts on them. If we see Russian subs 200 miles off our coast, with their nukes pointed in our direction, then I might be concerned. That’s what effectively happened in 1962 with the Cuban missile crisis: Russian missiles were pointed at the CONUS just 90 miles away. There was no war. What’s happening now is no comparison – I know, because I lived through it – and even then I wasn’t afraid.

      Yes, in a nuclear exchange (I use the word “exchange” because the action wouldn’t last long enough to be called a war), America would be destroyed, but so would Russia – you know, MAD. The US launches say, 2000 missiles and the Russian defense systems are so good that they are 99% effective. That means 20 nuclear warheads, minimum, explode over strategic areas of Russia. You think enough of the Russian governmental infrastructure would survive to be effective? I don’t think so, which is why it won’t happen.

      What’s happening now is 2 boys talking smack in the schoolyard, or 2 pro football players jabbering at each other on the field.

    OK, let’s talk peak oil theory. Peak oil demands we change our behavior, for example our transportation behavior. Both the prospect of global oil depletion and the urgent need to address climate change will impact the sustainability of urban passenger transport, particularly in high-mobility cities.

    So, what to do? Possible approaches for improving transportation sustainability:

    1) improve the fuel efficiency of all transport vehicles (Obama made gains here)

    2) shift to alternative sources of energy. Obama made gains here. In 2011 Solyndra received a $535 million U.S. Energy Department loan guarantee, the first recipient of a loan guarantee under Obama’s economic stimulus program, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. By 2014 the loan program had wiped out its losses, including a $528 million loss from Solyndra, and was operating in the black.

    3) increasing the occupancy rate for all transport modes

    4) shifting to more energy-efficient transport modes

    5) reducing the level of urban vehicular passenger travel. Very high urban densities would reduce vehicular travel. Decreasing the convenience of urban car travel can achieve large and equitable reductions in passenger travel.

      • wpa_ccc October 13, 2016 at 3:48 pm #

        “uninvited sexual touching” does not describe Trump’s sexual assault of numerous women, nor does it describe Trump’s rape of a 13 year old girl tied to a bed screaming “NO!” while Trump rapes her, with an eyewitness present.

        Trump will have to go to court for this rape of a 13 year old.

        “A federal judge in New York has ordered counsel for Donald Trump and the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein to appear in court along with the attorney for a woman referred to only as “Jane Doe” who alleges the Republican presidential nominee raped her when she was 13.

        Judge Ronnie Abrams has slated an initial status conference in the civil lawsuit for 16 December in a New York district court.

        The order raises the extraordinary prospect, were Trump to win the 8 November battle for the White House, of counsel for a US president-elect being called into federal court in proceedings relating to allegations of rape of an underage girl.”

        theguardian.com/us-news/2016/oct/12/donald-trump-jeffrey-epstein-alleged-rape-lawsuit

        “uninvited sexual touching” Q.? How quaint. Don’t be such a euphemist, Q.

    This website has slowly become as insane as the current political discourse. Yesterday I listened to Rush Limbaugh talking about how Barack Obama was on a plane during his last election, and he had an erection, and was displaying it to the women reporters who were present. I couldn’t believe what it was that I was hearing, and have never heard anything like that on public media in my life. Unless I was having a psychotic experience, has anybody heard what I heard on 10-12-16, on AM radio?, or was it just me having an acid flashback? I’d prefer to think it was me, rather than accept that things have devolved as far as they have seemed to. This is turning into the craziest election I have ever experienced, and I feel that it does not bode well for the future of this country. Craziness seems to be the new normal.

      On 12 October 2016, the web site Grabien News claimed that a 2008 video showed President Obama behaving “just as salaciously” as Trump had done in the 2005 video.

      It should also be noted that this video has been circulating since at least 2008, when it was used to smear then-Senator Obama during his first presidential campaign. The web site Obambi was one of the first to share the video along with the baseless claim that it depicted Obama with an erection. Ironically, back then Obambi posted the video along with an exhortation to vote for Hillary Clinton.

      You sound like you’re more shocked that Rush reported it as opposed to being shocked that it may have happened. Classic middle class response and exactly why we’re in the state we’re in. This kind of Victorian Respectability creates a vast zone of unconsciousness, where the Dark Forces are free to operate.

      I heard a tape of this event. It seems to have actually happened. And you are in disbelief why exactly? Obama also went to Gay clubs as a younger man apparently. And he got financial aid only available to foreigner students. He’s a mysterious figure and we will only know the Truth in decades to come – if then.

      And in a few more years, MLK’s FBI files will be released and as his widow said, people will lose all respect for him. Rather than that being allowed, I predict the files will not be released. It doesn’t really matter: aware people know he was a sex fiend and that he beat a White prostitute the evening before his death. He also made a lewd comment over the dead body of JFK – not theory, fact. It’s on tape.

    3-D Printer Makes Houses from Local Materials

    WASP (World’s Advanced Savings Project) has always thrived on an open source business model, but their newest offering takes open source to a whole new level. The Maker Economy Starter Kit is a starter kit like no other – it’s 3D printed self-sufficiency in a box, essentially. It contains everything a person could possibly need to build, furnish and maintain a 3D printed house from locally available and recycled materials. WASP will be introducing the idea in person at Maker Faire Rome, which is taking place from October 14 to 16. A large exhibition area will house workshops and demonstrations of all of WASP’s technology and how it can be used to bring the Maker Economy concept to life.

    WASP Introduces the Maker Economy Starter Kit – Everything You Need for 3D Printed Self-Sufficiency by Clare Scott | Oct 11, 2016

    With this you can 3-D Print an entire village, wherever earth/clay is available, which is in a lot of places. 30+% of the earth’s buildings are made of clay/adobe/earth-based materials.

    On a serious note, I noticed that Trump is quite capable of powerfully delivering a pre-written speech read from a monitor……..however, it is obvious when he begins to stray off-script for a line or two into Donald-talk. He needs to avoid this tendency at all costs because he ain’t no Demosthenes.

        Diogenes was a bankster who worked with his daddy, also a banker, so your role models are the banksters.

        Diogenes got mixed up in a currency scandal, involving the adulteration or debasement of the currency, so Diogenes is not an honest man. But he got what he deserved: exile from the city, loss of his citizenship, and all his material possessions.

        Your guy Diogenes is a penniless bum with no citizenship because no one wanted an undocumented bum. Diogenes was a taker, not a maker, a homeless panhandler getting in peoples’ faces.

      Did you watch the debate? Was he not eloquent without script? As he admits, he’s a counter-puncher, a natural prosecutor of no mean quality.

      This does indicate that’s emotionally focused as opposed to purely intellectual or aesthetic. On questions of policy or theory, he will fumble without script. But oh how negative emotion focuses his mind! As Dale Carnegie said long ago, knock the average Joe down and he will get up and plead eloquently how he was wronged.

      Again, this doesn’t mean he’s not sincere about his policies or that he has a low IQ. He just hasn’t forged that connection between the different parts of his brain well enough. Anger increases the voltage and makes the connection work.

      You’re being negative btw – again. You can’t get behind the Leader because he threatens your world. Like it or not, you’re with N.Y Times and the Jews who own it – and the rest of the Dark Powers that rule the West.
