What’s ahead — like a few months down the road? Hysteria and chaos, if the “Joe Biden” regime can help it… and they’re helping it all they can. Twice vaxxed, twice boosted, and twice recent Covid-19 patient Dr. Anthony Fauci warned this week that the unvaxxed would “get into trouble” as the seasons turn this year. The part he left out is: the unvaxxed will be in trouble trying to keep up with helping their sick and dying vaccinated relatives whose immune systems have been damaged by their multiple vaxxes.

The boldness of Dr. Fauci’s lying is really something to behold. Who in the entire HHS-NIH-CDC bureaucracy has failed to notice that the mRNA “vaccines” have no efficacy whatever against Covid-19? The vaccinated are by far those still getting sick and increasingly disabled from the disease and even more from the vaxxes themselves. The emperor’s new clothes hang in shreds. Rumor is that many upper-level employees in these public health agencies are increasingly freaked out by their now-obvious complicity in a momentous crime. They know they will have to answer for allowing the mRNA fiasco to get this far, for going along to get along, and they’re preparing to mutiny to save their own asses. Wait for it.

The regime’s back-up plan is the comical monkeypox, transmitted to date mainly via all-male orgies. HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra declared a national monkeypox emergency this week, saying he’d “explore every option on the table” (except an official advisory against homosexual orgies). There is, of course, reasonable suspicion that monkeypox is but one device for shutting down the November mid-term election, or, more deviously, closing polling places and allowing only mail-in ballots — the easiest way to rig elections.

That will lead naturally to several states’ attorneys general seeking relief in the Supreme Court against the federal government’s unconstitutional takeover of the states’ duty to conduct their elections. The “Joe Biden” regime will lose that one, but not before royally pissing off at least half the adults in the land, leading to even greater-than-anticipated election losses for the Party of Chaos.

Meanwhile, the Party of Chaos is about to unleash its “Inflation Reduction Act,” which proposes to spend three quarters of a trillion dollars created from thin air into an economy already hyperventilating on three years of multi-trillion-dollar injections derived from no productive activity. At the same time, the act will raise taxes especially for low-end wage earners and small businesses, completing the regime’s destruction of the middle-class. The cherry-on-top is the provision to double the size of the Internal Revenue Service by hiring 87,000 new employees to harass ordinary American taxpayers. Is that what you voted for in 2020? I  thought not.

None of that is going to work as intended. More likely, passage of the act will trigger destruction of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, and a stampede out of dollar-denominated investments, which is to say, a very severe financial crisis. Credit will freeze, the distribution and sale of goods will cease, interest will stop being paid on virtually all outstanding debt, the bond market will implode, few will have anything identifiable as money, and there will be little in the way of everyday goods like food and gasoline to buy anyway.

You realize, of course, that this is a description of economic collapse. If things roll that way, there will be absolutely no trust left in the US government. It will be either ignored or opposed. And in places like my own New York, under the tyrannical and titanically incompetent accidental Governor Kathy Hochul, there will be no trust in state government either. Meaning, we’re on our own, community-by-community. This will be a very interesting experiment in the dynamics of emergence — the self-organizing properties of systems in chaos. I doubt that it will resolve in the direction of the globalists’ dreams of transhuman technocracy. Every macro trend now runs against centralization.

But the process could conceivably invite an attempted Chinese takeover of the USA, if not militarily, then in a way similar to America’s asset-stripping operations in the collapsed Soviet Union of the 1990s, a looting spree — as seen many other times in history when empires founder. Or else, the rest of the world will just kick back and witness the spectacle of our struggle as the lights of Western Civ flicker out. (Europe will be right in it with us, by the way.) The other nations of the world are tired of us trying to push them around, with increasingly evil intentions. They will enjoy watching our tribulations. They will be convinced we deserve it.

This is what comes from a culture of immersive and pervasive dishonesty. Satan is the father of lies and we have become Satanic, being and doing evil, most especially to ourselves, whether you believe in a literal Satan or not. So, do you think now that being transgressive is… fun? You’ll be changing what’s left of your mind about that soon. Along with the threat of literal starvation will also arise a terrible hunger for truth: How did this happen? How did we come to do this?  Who was behind it? It won’t be hard to find out, once we’re motivated to look.

    Sorry Jim. Your next-to-the-last paragraph is nothing but stir-the-pot fiction.

    Sorry Crusher, your comment is just bluster. — JHK Admin

    • MontanaMan August 5, 2022 at 9:45 am #

      You don’t know that to a certainty.

    • Disaffected August 5, 2022 at 10:20 am #

      Actually, I thought that one most on point of all. The asset stripping part has already begun from both within and without, but I doubt there will be any sort of military takeover. Simply no need for it, other than to take possession of the nukes. Sounds like more of a job for the Russians and they seem to be increasingly up for the task.

      • Not_GeorgeT August 5, 2022 at 10:37 am #

        Certainly possible.

        In 2000 author Eric Harry wrote a fiction work the title being “Invasion”.

        It seemed interesting reading for casual fiction in 2000.

      • SW August 5, 2022 at 10:44 am #

        Asset stripping certainly has begun with buying up of real estate. Gates owns the most farmland in the US, Bezos owns land three times the size of the island of Guam, at 420,000 acres, most of which is in West Texas where he just launched a space capsule for fun and profit. Ted Turner owns 2 million acres which is almost double the size of Rhode Island, most of it in Georgia, Nebraska, South Dakota, and New Mexico.

        But the real concern is the buying up of property by Blackrock, Vanguard and State Street that will probably be used as rental property.

        “BlackRock is one of a number of companies mentioned by The Wall Street Journal in a recent exposé. “Yield-chasing investors are snapping up single-family homes, competing with ordinary Americans and driving up prices,” they warned. The question is, why would institutional investors and BlackRock, which manages assets worth $5.7 trillion, be interested in overpaying for modest, single family homes?”

        Well, here’s a good guess:

        “If the average American is pushed out of the housing market, and most of the available housing is owned by investment groups and corporations, you become beholden to them as your landlord. This fulfills part of the Great Reset’s “new normal” dictum — the part where you will own nothing and be happy. This isn’t a conspiracy theory; it’s part of WEF’s 2030 agenda.”

        The ultimate security is land. Without it you can’t build a home, start a farm or put down roots in a community. You’ll be rootless in every sense of the word. Maybe the WEF will give out coupons for tents.

        • Rowdypiglet August 5, 2022 at 11:35 am #

          Our host is absolutely right about the asset stripping and where it will inevitably lead. China would be foolish to waste their resources on any kind of physical invasion when they all but own us already. I’m just sorry it’s not Russia.

          • SW August 5, 2022 at 12:06 pm #

            China doesn’t want anything but our money. They patiently wait for the check, guard their assets (Taiwan is one) and send chemicals to Mexico that are processed into fentanyl to hit the streets of the US. Invading would be a lot of trouble then they’d have to open drug rehab centers for all addicts.

          • Socrates-Detroit August 5, 2022 at 12:31 pm #

            China, at a minimum, wants (wanted) to have it’s “place” in the world order, to be recognized as a co-equal player to the US.

            Maybe they wanted more. When I was younger, I thought they might. Communists are innately control-freaks. I was anti-communist. Now I think that “Communist” is just a label, like being a “Democrat” in the US.

            With the fiasco in the Ukraine, and in Taiwan, the Chinese see that the Western elite wants to subordinate the whole world.

            This is indeed Satanic–both in the literal, Christian, biblical sense, but also for those who are agnostic or non-Christian, in the figurative sense.

            So, war it is. Sun Tzu was Chinese, you know. “Where your enemy is strong, pull back, bide your time, evade, avoid. Where he is weak, attack”.

            A socially and economically weakened middle America that is divided is an opportunity for China to facilitate more division and economic disruption, both in ways seen and unseen, and weaken their adversary from within.

            Since we (the US-led West) are in a cold war with the rest of the world, and the Chinese GET IT, rather than go back to the stone age, in the secular context, it’s better to win and get your enemy’s assets of value mostly intact–no shooting and wait for time to do it’s work.

            The question for China, and the world to consider, is, if America implodes and degenerates to a “World Made by Hand” (this is what our host generally sees and says to again today–“self-organizing principles” in the Peoples Republic of NY State”, which has really moved backwards politically since I lived there during my teens), will the US government and military, which has been taken over by an alien virus called the “deep state”/establishment/WEF” (that equals Satan, or his followers, BTW) react by blowing the world up rather than letting middle America and other modest governments live in peace and be left alone?

            I’m mad as hell, because I certainly did not want the US government for most of my adult life, going into foolish wars of choice, ratcheting up a little more (Gulf War I, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq invasion, Libya, Syria, now Ukraine) that have impoverished my country, and by extension me, and caused a lot of pointless misery with blood on our hands. But that is how it is. And since the USSR imploded in 1991, the US of A has been the leading cause of misery and problems in the world. Very sad–when I started as an Imperial Trooper, we, the USA, were the good guys, USSR bad, China had moved from bad to “in between”, and not even a decade later when I left, we were moving from “not good” to “bad”.

            Mankind is in over its’ head. Technology has made the pace of event move to fast; given men (and women) too much real and imagine powered, and they lack the morality, or even the intellect to handle it. Those in control will inevitably quarrel amonst themselves should they succeed in enslaving the rest of us.

            There really is no way out, other than divine intervention. So, yes, I salute JHK for calling out the root cause of our problems in his closing paragraph.

          • CheezusCrackers August 6, 2022 at 12:05 pm #

            @ socrates et al

            Great comment. Jim gets it right. He certainly pegs the general spiral down.

            My only dissent is that most analysts and pundits far overestimate China. Yes, China is a great power like Russia, but unlike Russia the Chinese economy is in real jeopardy of collapse like us. (Ironic that 30 years after losing the Cold War the Russians seem to be winning).

            If I had to guess 6 to 10 months out I’d say there is every chance that the EU will collapse w widespread civil unrest; the US will be on edge of collapse w similar unrest; China will be collapsing w another Leap Forward mass murder, and Russia will be consolidating their position in the world as the commodities superstore. No one will be thinking about Ukraine.

          Blackstone just appropriated $50 billion from/for its investors to buy up properties. They did the same a while back with $30 billion.

          • Ron Anselmo August 6, 2022 at 12:00 am #

            “Vulture” fund – same as 2007/2008. Surprising how they keep going to the same well, and people never seem to get it. Overvalue the property, lever them up & then pull the rug.

            Farms in the ’70’s, S&L’s & commercial RE in the ’80’s. “Just another instance of assets going from weak hands to strong hands – the beat goes on.

        • Alzaebo August 5, 2022 at 3:36 pm #

          Kunstler is absolutely spot-on in his assessment.

          Note the ESG block-busting of Sri Lanka, Denmark, and the Ukraine, that their resources may be snapped up on the cheap. They are test plots.

        • niner August 5, 2022 at 4:37 pm #

          bravo, Mr. Kunstler.
          all the news that’s fit to print.

          as to the asset stripping, we Americans conflate propertarianism and the rule of laws with representative democracy/republicanism.

          forgetting that laws are made every 10 minutes and by the worst people.

          propertarianism does not rest on a moral base, but rather a mere real-politic assignment of number, and worse, digital number.

          and without a moral base, eventually the thieves and liars burrow into the rule of laws — all simply made by ink, as hollow as a brass idol.

          morality is ruled by conscience and consciousness.

          and property stripping, and debt slavery, as Michael Hudson has oft pointed out, has been the eternal problem of caste and class based societies. political stability is kept for further generations, by debt forgiveness and return of land.

          titles are not real, they are the sister invention of money, and just as troublesome and eventually false.

          while there is always a question of practical agreements and kept promises, but on the other side is the falsity of equality.

          still the middle path is morality and fairness and a moment of reset and start over. the eternal second chance.

        • kendar667 August 5, 2022 at 7:18 pm #

          Here’s the thing about land, it’s only good security if you can keep it, protect it, and care for it, otherwise it’s just useless dirt. If society breaks down (continues to?), we could easily devolve into a warlord type scenario where only the very strong and their henchman will be able to keep anything for any period of time. Keep it be sheer force – come onto the land and get shot, etc.

          I believe Jim about the decentralization dynamic, everything seems to be pointing to it, and it’s hard to imagine in that world how the likes of Bill Gates, Bezos, and Blackrock will be able to do much of anything with all this land that they “own”. Property rights are fragile and depend on the social fabric, law and order, all of which appear to be evaporating. So squatters, and pretty much anyone else that wants to, will be wherever they want to and the ownership construct irrelevant.

        Now that Nancy has pissed off the PLA they are going to stop shipping truck/auto parts.

        While the vaxed are walking around airports puking up spiked proteins, they forgot to mention that Monkey Pox is just a new name for the “Mad Cow” prion FrakenFauci has been using for years. (AIDS, Ebola,ZIKA, West Nile, Swine Flu)

        I think the Russians are more likely to let our dumpster fire burn itself out…We don’t have much that any real nation would want…China, however, is ruthless enough to dispose of our problem minorities and take possession of some nice real estate…China is still seeking vengeance for our actions in the last couple of centuries….

      • Paula D August 5, 2022 at 1:10 pm #

        China hasn’t even invaded the tiny island of Taiwan for 73 years.
        They’re not going to invade the USA. Why should they? They can buy the parts they want and ignore the rest.
        The US is full of people who are unable to think or be productive. China has over a billion people who can do both.
        Why the hell would they want to come here and try to turn dysfunctional losers into productive people? That makes no sense.

        • niner August 5, 2022 at 4:51 pm #

          exactly, Paula.

          and they much prefer to live and work in enclaves with their own kind, even in their merchant colonies in asia & africa.

          everyplace has a china town.

          but i think they would like to strip us of long distance weapons and long distance military.

          but UKR will have us soon running out of everything that flies through the air and explodes. you have to wonder if China put us up to that.

          • Paula D August 5, 2022 at 5:12 pm #

            Well, like I was saying, the US is full of people who can’t think.
            I doubt they needed China to put them up to stripping the armory.
            Although I realize that the US military-industrial complex has nothing to do with “defense” and everything to do with graft and corruption, I was still surprised that a trillion dollars a year supports so little actual production of WMD.
            A trillion a year and they run out after 5 months?

      1. The only way to militarily destroy the U.S. is to blow it to hell and gone with nukes. An invasion is out of the question.

      2. All it takes is a Governor to decide that the local situation is too messed up and he/she can do wonders. You see them ruining things all the time; they can fix things too.

      3. China is a YUGE threat.
      Almost as big as the people in this country who are actively playing into the Deep State’s hands.

      4. My Dad used to tell me the problem with Americans is they wait until their backs are pushed against the wall before they come out fighting and then they are the meanest SOB’s on the planet. Just look and you’ll notice most people’s backs are nearly pushed into the wall right now. The reaction is going to be Biblical.

      • Ron Anselmo August 5, 2022 at 4:27 pm #

        richsob –

        I tell my sons, 18 & 19, we (the American people) don’t fight today because we (the American people) have too much to lose – jobs, careers, houses, money, families, our lives. We’ll fight when we (the American people) have nothing left to lose.

        They say, we have to fight now. If we wait until they’ve taken everything – when we have nothing left to lose – it’ll already be over.

        Smart boys – they give me hope for the future – fighters both. Yes, I tell them – we need to fight now.

      Our host is absolutely correct Crusher, this IS Satanic and as he said, whether you believe in Satan or not, there are those that do and who sacrifice to Moloch and despise humanity and they are clearly the ones that will kill hundreds of millions in his name.

      The scary part is that the “governments” of the world are leading the charge to wipe out humanity, or at least lighten the load that they feel has become a burden to them. As Judge Andrew Napolitano clearly stated at the Rally For Peace & Freedom in Kingston, New York, “Everything the government says is a lie! Everything the government has; it has stolen from someone! The only thing the government is good at is killing people!” The spirit of the Founding Fathers is strong in this man. It was an honor to meet him that day, as it was to meet our dear host in NYC a week earlier.

      Oh, we’re not there yet? What a relief.

      Hey, did you know that with high-speed trading the average share is owned for eight seconds? How about that? You had stock from Amalgamated Buggy-whip in your portfolio and you didn’t even know about it. In the late 1940s that figure was (I forget the precise number) let’s say six and a half years.

          It’s worse than that, though there also plenty of that. It’s not easy to con a con. He was re-posting anti-covid hysteria doctors right from the beginning. He knew. But he did it at night on twitter and not from the podium – like he was in his mother’s basement.

          When he once suggested from the podium that if we just ignored it, it would all go away is the clincher. He was right of course, and he was inevitably savaged by the media. Of course he was. He lacked the courage to simply speak the Truth. Ignore a deadly pandemic? That’s crazy.

          So he shut up and supported the unnecessary Vax when it came out 100%.

            Don’t forget that back in March 2020 a lot about COVID was unknown. Trump’s not a scientist or doctor, so when a room full of medical professionals with combined centuries of experience telling him masks and lockdowns are the answer, what choice did he really have? In hindsight we’ve realized that the medical community is not neutral or unbiased, and they found a way to ruin Trump.

          He walked into a carefully laid trap. More and more really good people are involved in finding out exactly what happened with that task force, and what needs to happen next is for the Republicans to question former VP Pence on just why it was he had so many America hating Deep Staters working for him in the first place, let alone giving them free rein on a task force that was supposed to be about a virus.

          Trump’s biggest mistake was believing in the vaccine. In his view, it wouldn’t matter anymore what that wrecking crew had done once he had the remedy in place, because he was told, by people who should have known what they were talking about, that the shots worked, and also that the reason for all the “restrictions” would go away once the vaxx was “found”.

          When the two weeks to “flatten the curve” switched to “until a vaccine (FOR A COLD VIRUS!) is found” that should have awakened even the dumbest bonehead in the world that there was a scam going on. Someone like Kathy Cuomo, for instance.

          Unfortunately, when someone says something like, “if only we had a vaccine ready” to someone like Donald Trump, they are waving red meat in front of a hungry lion, because he is a man who remembers the JFK days, and for who nothing is impossible.

          If the Warp Speed vaccine was everything “experts” were claiming it was, his achievement in getting it out to the people would have been a marvel.

          They were lying their faces off. Some lying was due to greed and incompetence.

          Some was in service of an agenda.

          I think lying to a president during an alleged national emergency should be treated like lying to yur general during a war.

    Amnesty International finally confirms yet another conspiracy theory…that the monster Zelinsky is using his own people as human shields.

    • JohnAZ August 5, 2022 at 9:58 am #

      From the start, Zelensky called for the citizens of Ukraine to arm themselves and fight the Russians. He painted a target on the chest of every single person in his country.

      • Socrates-Detroit August 5, 2022 at 7:16 pm #

        Of course, the destruction is awful in the battle zones. Yet even there, the Russian “invaders” have treated the people better than the Ukranian “defenders” who use them as human shields.

        In the east, many of the UKRANIAN-speakers prefer the Russians anyway. Of course the Russian speakers do–speaking Russian in public in post-2014 “Ukraine” can get one shot and killed.

        Medvedev’s map IS the future: the Russians will occupy it all East of the Dnieper, they will occupy the coast line. Much of Western “Ukraine” will go to Poland,

        DIGRESSION from which it was taken by the Soviet Union in 1945 (and the Poles were “compensated” with Silesia, the easternmost area of Germany, creating millions of German refugees who created a new life in West Germany and helped make West Germany and be extension united Germany an industrial powerhouse, until now, when they will re-experience the late 1940s in a few months…)

        And maybe Hungary and Rumania will get some too, and the “Ukraine” will the area around Kiev.

      You and JohnAZ can’t distinguish between the aggressor (that would be Russia), and the defender (Ukraine). A human shield is a tactic used by an aggressor such as a terrorist hiding among family members or other civilians. People defending their own country from aggresoion are called patriots. By your logic the French Resistance or U.S. Marines in Iwo Jima in World War II were human shields.

      • JohnAZ August 5, 2022 at 11:17 am #

        Do you know the background of the Ukranian mess? Who led them into the confrontation with Russia? Who got a duly elected Ukranian president thrown out of office with public protests, bought and paid for by NATO? Who put the Biden Mob into Ukraine to rip off the Ukranians? What group impeached a president for trying to find out how deeply the US had corrupted Ukraine?

        Did you know that Putin asked to join NATO in 2014 and was rebuffed by guess who? Did you know that when the last five nations joined NATO, that Putin said that the Ukraine is a Red Line, that Russia would take action against NATO if Ukraine moved to join NATO?

        How would you feel if Mexico decided to join BRICS and allowed Russian arms along the southern border. THey are already controlling the US illicit trades. Remember the 13 days in May in 1963? To Russia, Ukraine is a dagger pointed at the Caspian oil fields, just like Mexico could be aimed at Texas and Oklahoma.

        Russia entered an 8 year old war in Feb.
        Idiots in America and Europe were told that they started it, but it was the US in 2014 when they paid for a violent coup that overthrew the elected government of Ukraine and put in hand-picked right wing totalitarians to hand the resources of Ukraine over to US looters.
        The people of eastern Ukraine rose up in protest. They are the ones doing most of the infantry fighting now, while Russia provides back-up artillery and support.
        It is still the people of eastern Ukraine dying, just like for the last 8 years, but now blithering idiots “care”. They don’t realize how stupid and ill-informed they look when they spout the propaganda of the Empire.
        The NATO-trained military of Ukraine, filled with nazis and mercenaries, has spent the last 8 years digging into eastern Ukraine and they are using the people as human shields.
        The militias and Russia are trying to liberate the citizens without killing them, but when the Ukies put missiles into schools and throw people out of windows of apartment buildings so that they can set up sniper stations in top floors, they have made those places targets.
        Spare us the propaganda, zekesdad, we hear it everyday but we’re not stupid enough to believe it.

        • Paula D August 5, 2022 at 1:34 pm #

          To be more accurate, it is still the civilians of eastern Ukraine dying, but now the Ukie military is also.
          Sadly, Ukraine is not allowed by the US/NATO to negotiate, so they keep throwing more and more soldiers at the front.
          They are now kidnapping men off the street, handing them rifles and sending them to the front. These are men who had no interest in killing eastern Ukrainians, but they use the nazis to keep them there by shooting them if they try to retreat or surrender.
          It is horrific. Anyone who supports it is despicable.
          Zelensky, under orders from the US, had announced that they were going to start conscripting women in August. I don’t know if they backed down from that. The people of Ukraine are starting to become very, very pissed off at their fate as US proxies.
          Lindsey Graham, salivating as he always does at the prospect of people dying for Empire, last week announced that the US expected to keep supplying weapons and ammo until the last Ukrainian was dead.
          Do you really think the Ukrainians are happy to die so that the Empire can take their land, forests and other resources? .

        The French Resistance was a joke, it’s only fitting you should cite them in your logic-less argument.

        The Ukranian troops, those still fighting are shooting from residences and hospitals.

        Russia pre-emptively launched a military operation to prevent Ukraine from hosting NATO/US missiles that can take out Moscow in less than 8 minutes, after the Ukraine refused to agree to not accept those weapons, after the Ukranian Government (which is NOT a democracy) spent 8 years shelling the Donbass and which BANNED the use of Russian in 2014.

        As I noted above, the destruction is real and tragic, but the people in the East do not want the govt in Kiev and the Russians are liberating them.

      By reducing the national debt over ten years. Their words, not mine. Tax the heck out of those nasty corporations so they do not have to tax Joe Everyman. What a great deal.

      Except they forgot to tell you that the taxes on GM, Ford, Amazon et al are just going to be passed on to the public as price increases.

      When corporations lose on their bottom line, they react by doing reductions in force, or moving overseas. Proof? Obama!!!

      Biden is getting away with job creation bragging rights with $15 an hour jobs, because there are no others to create family wealth.

      What a great deal. Spend more money, and hide it with the same BS Dems have always done. When your household gets into debt problems, you either buckle down to pay the piper, or you go bankrupt. This government does not feel it has to follow those rules. they control the money so just print some more. Bankruptcy equals stagflation and eventual shutdown with the government. Oh boy, are the gimmes going to scream over what is coming. Maybe they will go home.

      Where are the counter GOP plans to offset the idiocy of the Deep State Dems and RINOs. The GOP is worthless to offset tax and spend or any of the other Leftist movements in the government.

Take them all away and we’ll be forced to build new residential areas and new infrastructure that will function with low tech and simple transport like motorbikes and bicycles. The homes in these new living areas will probably be made from the scrap left behind from the demolition of suburbia. We’ll have little sharecropper shacks that will be something like the one Elvis Presly lived in as a child. Complaining about these coming events is a waste of time and energy.

            Beryl writes “We see them putting the bike lanes everywhere, and tearing up all the curbs at the intersections to install all the “safe” crosswalks.” I’m getting back into biking and have been riding around construction areas in my town where they are taking out curbs at intersections and putting in the smoothed out areas that make it easy for bikes or wheelchairs to go from sidewalk to street. We have bike trails and wide sidewalks making it idea for bicycling. I’m figuring out ways to get around in town without needing a car.

Federal spending should be prudently done but just get over the national debt/ balanced budget nonsense since the predicted disaster never materializes since federal debt can be managed.

      The Inflation Refuction Act is a rebrand Build Back Better.

And, if you’re really lucky, some dumb, greedy fucks in the other party who’ve bitched about fiscal irresponsibility will support a different spending bill because it makes them look smart and caring and protective of American industry, ad happened with the giranically wasteful “Chips bill.” Why should Manchin and the self-described socialist, Sinema, stand against Build Back Better any longer, when a bunch of fucking dumbfuck Republicans, led by most of the GOP Senate leadership and the piece of shit known as Willard Romney just voted to squander hundreds of billions of dollars on, essentially, nothing? But, you say, what about the chips?

      No, it’s exactly like “HIV”. There is no virus that causes AIDS. AIDS, like monkeypox, is a syndrome caused by repeated abuse of the body’s immune system, with drugs mainly, but also with repeated injury to the mucous membrane in the anal orifice.

      The nonsensical “HIV” is an invention that was required to reinforce Fauci’s lies about AIDS. The pharmaceutical “cure” is deadly. Doesn’t that sound a lot like the “novel coronavirus”? It should because it’s just a retread of Fauci’s original mythical plague.

      I think the real reason they won’t order No Orgies, is because the MSM wouldn’t cover mask and social distance violations of the elite, but the more tabloid-y press will certainly cover these public officials when they themselves get caught at the orgies they just banned.

        • Beryl of Oyl August 5, 2022 at 11:40 am #

          Before the Europeans stepped foot on this continent in significant numbers, the inhabitants were divided into tribes along “ethnic” lines, and constantly rowing with each other.

          All the early settlers did was introduce new groups and fighting along political lines.

            But you see, the “early settlers” aren’t just a group of new tribes, they happen to be your tribe. And yes, in the end they did coalesce. And they were doing it again later one with the newer White immigrant groups.

            You talk like you’re the omniscient narrator in a Play or a Novelist talking about their novel. No you’re a character in the story. And like any character, you are nothing without your people.

            Jarek, in terms of groups finding reasons to fight, that IS all they did.

          • SW August 5, 2022 at 2:51 pm #

            @B of O — The Indian tribes have been romanticized and there were qualities that some tribes had that were admirable. But they were just people who also fought over land, would team up with an enemy to inflict pain on a greater enemy (and our ancestors exploited this to the max) and had the misfortune to live in a era when their country was overrun by Europeans. Sometimes, you’re just on the losing team and that’s not too much fun.

    Anyone who isn’t aware of pending severe food scarcity is living under a rock, or just intoxicated by the blue pill. Multiple analysts (no ref. to avoid moderation, but do your own research) have shown 50+ food production/preparation sites being burned down or blown up in the past 4-5 months. Nothing about it in the legacy media, X a mention here & there in local news. Major food problems are dead ahead, but there will be confusion. e.g. Ranchers that I personally know in Texas are saying that, due to poor feed stock and a massive reduction in grazing grasslands due to weather, they will slaughter massive numbers of cattle early this September and drop the price of beef substantially. But then in early 2023, forget eating beef for a long long time, with extremely high prices and low availability. (This is apparently happening not only in Tx and OK, but also other cattle and cattle feed stock producing states.). Buy a freezer !!!!!

    • Beryl of Oyl August 5, 2022 at 11:48 am #

      Yes buy a freezer, but with the uncertainty of the fuel supply, you could find that food in your freezer going to waste.

      Oh I know, I can run right out and buy a generator. Except there are things called chips nowadays, that play a part in how they work. I suppose there are simpler ones, but you see the problem, in that “they” have already thought of everything.

      Remember Jen Psaki mocking Americans for being concerned over being unable to buy fitness equipment?

      Well, what if it isn’t just your NordikTrack sitting on a ship, but your Generac generator as well?

      Mocking peope who think they need a treadmill during a state of emergency over a cold virus that kills the overweight and unfit almost exclusively (like every other virus) should have been enough for an angry mob, to drag her out of there by the hair and roll her in tar and feathers.

        Beryl, I’m concerned about possible blackouts or even deliberate rationing of electricity. Those smart meters are not your friend.

          Here’s a wild guess. They will start canning foods in metal that cannot be pierced until a QR code is scanned and uploaded to their database. That way they can ensure you are only eating what they want you to eat, when they want you to eat, and how much they want you to eat.

    • TXRancher August 5, 2022 at 12:42 pm #

      Yes the TX cattle auction houses are seeing triple their normal cattle numbers for the weekly auctions. Half of those cows are being sold because there is no available pasture or hay and the other half because the stock ponds are drying up, all due to the drought. I agree that there will be a surplus of meat available the end of this year but prices may not drop in the grocery store. But then next year and the years to follow will see large increases in prices as the shortage induced by this sell off transpire.

Now that we have public “affirmation” of everything from bestiality to incest to cannibalism, they seem to be more than fine with all of it.

    Would have commented sooner, but it took me over an hour to log-in this morning to the JHK site. Some bugs in the system, likely a result of the Chicoms.

    Anyway, I wanted to inquire as to how the IRS 87,000 new employees to harass hard working American taxpayers? We can’t even find people to work at Wal-Mart and McD’s, so how would this even be possible? Maybe they will give the jobs to some of those newly arrived illegals being bussed in?

    • cowbell81 August 5, 2022 at 10:37 am #

      How do they intend to find, hire, trail, recruit, and retain these employees? How do they honestly intend to pay this many people a fair living wage? Just print more money and drive up the inflationary trends?

      • Not_GeorgeT August 5, 2022 at 11:02 am #

        First they need to find the people to hire.

        Just about everywhere I go there are help wanted signs.

        On a few occasions, as I’ve looked at the signs, I’ve been asked if I want a job. I was just being a warm body in a store who could read a few words.

        87,000 is a lot of skilled labor.

        Imagine if it becomes a few skilled and the rest mostly not skilled.

          There are a lot of college graduates who can’t find jobs so my guess is, they’ll be the new hires. With the added bonus of being able to garnish their wages for student loan payments. 🙂

      • D from OR August 5, 2022 at 11:13 am #

        Thank you Cowbell. See my comment above for a similar take.

        Any “new” hires for these IRS jobs will be entry-level I’m guessing and recruiting will take a long time. Just vetting and hiring within the government takes forever so I can’t imagine they will have anywhere near 87,000 anytime soon.

        Also, that number is likely a fake as far as “agents” go as the IRS is a bureaucratic dream and there’s lots and lots of paper so lots and lots of staff. Like any government agency.

      • Bilejones August 5, 2022 at 12:22 pm #

      87000 new IRS employees? easy, Cowbell. They are 87000 less people on the unemployment line. They are 87000 more people with jobs that gives Biden more bragging rights. They are 87000 more voters for the Dems like the rest of northern Virginia and Maryland suburbs dependent on these BS jobs. They are jobs with no productive background at all, just money printing creations. I remember that when I was in the Navy, I scratched my head why I was paying Fed. taxes. Well here you are, these folks will returns a large part of their “income” right back to the bums that created them.

      Lastly, these jobs are not to create new opportunities for folks. They will exist only as another non creative generator of inflation.

      BTW, has anyone broken down the bill and exposed how almost all of it in inflationary, all of it. Then published the same, where is the GOP counter offensive?

      Dis, just declaring it inflationary on TV does nothing. The entire MSM is just waiting to pounce on that. Facts, real data, foregone conclusions presented to the public that exposes the Left for what it is. A society of bums keeping power by tax and spend and convincing the public they are doing it for them. You know, it could be that the bi party, (uniparty really), republican system no longer works.

      Two days later I got a notice saying I hadn’t responded and was therefore going to be in big trouble.
      So I called the IRS and was onhold for FOUR hours!
      Then I got an agent with a strong accent, but I couldn’t tell you from what country.
      She gave me a really hard time, demanding various numbers, like my SS number and the number from the letter they sent me and my bank account number, and just being generally snotty and supercilious.
      Then she put me onhold for another hour, then came back and said that it had been cleared up.
      Then she said, and I kid you not, “Is there anything else I can help you with?”

    Once again, since the core constraints of depletion, overshoot and degradation are fixed, how does an alternative time line alter any potential outcomes?

    For example, let’s say the US is at the pinnacle of its political greatness, social cohesion and
    Mfg/engineering prowess:

    – How does this avoid fertilizer/feed, harvest and distribution issues effecting food supplies?

    – how do international, national and regional mfg and supply chain networks manage rising fuel, nat gas and elect generation costs?

    The only things different would the the absence of intentional sabotage. Without the elite trying to destroy the most capable, they’d be left to organize managing the decline.

    Which is why the entire set of programs across the board are designed to defeat “regular” people in order to allow the clever and cunning an escape path.

    West Virginia man gets 3 year sentence for threats to Fauci, other officials

    Thomas Patrick Connally Jr. will spend three years in prison followed by three more years of supervised release for his threats against Fauci, former National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins, Department of Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary for Health Rachel Levine, a Massachusetts public health official and a religious leader.

    U.S. District Judge Paula Xinis sentenced Connally after he pleaded guilty for using an anonymous email to make gruesome threats against Fauci and others in late 2020 through mid-2021.

    One email to Fauci said that he and his family would be “dragged into the street, beaten to death, and set on fire.”

    Connally also threatened to attack and kill Collins and his family if he continued to promote mandatory vaccinations for COVID-19.

    “Connally admitted that he sent the threats to Drs. Fauci and Collins with the intent to intimidate or interfere with the performance of their official duties and with the intent to retaliate against Dr. Fauci and Dr. Collins for performing their official duties, including discussing COVID-19 and its testing and prevention,” wrote to the Justice Department.

    Connally threatened the three remaining figures with physical violence and death as well.

    “Everyone has the right to disagree, but you do not have the right to threaten a federal official’s life,” said U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland Erek L. Barron. “Threats like these will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

    Deputy Inspector General for Investigations Christian J. Schrank added: “The public, including public servants, deserve the utmost safety and the assurance that they can perform their duties without interference.”

      cowbell81, are law enforcement officers considered “public servants”?

      • cowbell81 August 5, 2022 at 12:57 pm #

        I am sure that according to the liberal BLM loving federal judiciary, the boys in blue are not considered “public servants” under their definition. But as we’ve lately learned, all definitions are subject to revision and modification upon any whim to serve any purpose necessary.

      Did he not threaten ours? Not only that, our very livelihoods, family/housing security, and the right to enjoy normal life in this country?

      That guy’s email was vulgar and stupid, and he should be prosecuted…but not because he threatened a “federal official”, for the luvva God. Because he threatened a person.

      They’ve got us accepting the idea that these “federal officials” (whom the people literally employ at their behest, and by definition are down the food chain from the masses of private citizens) are actually “betterer” than us…and therefore, threatening one of them is somehow worse than threatening old Sammy down at the liquor store.

        You don’t need to be rich to attract attention for just, you know, speaking. In the UK, if your house gets burgled, you’ve probably got about a 3 percent chance of the police doing anything about it.

        However, utter something the alphabet people don’t like and half a dozen supposedly overworked police officers will appear at your door because you caused someone ‘anxiety’. Because being burgled apparently doesn’t cause anxiety so people can be left to deal with that themselves.

        The British police have been referred to as the paramilitary wing of The Guardian, which says it all really. And on the subject of The Guardian, the ‘journalists’ Paul Mason and Carole Cadwalladr (British Brainwashing Corporation/Channel 4 News/The Guardian) have been publicly outed as working for the British intelligence services.

    For those of us not living in blinkered denial it has seemed obvious enough in recent years that China is methodically positioning itself to succeed the US as the world’s hegemon.

    But now we hear that through some combination of financial corruption and colossal misallocation of capital China has also shot itself in the foot and may be nearing its own collapse.

    With Europe in political tatters it appears that the nation best positioned for the foreseeable future is Russia, with immense natural resources, advantageous climate change, and an economy that was forced to learn self sufficiency after being plundered by its oligarchs, in league with predatory US financiers, a third of a century ago.

    If our idiotic “leaders” don’t manage to incinerate the planet before our collapse drops us beneath the threshold of being a significant player in the world’s events, Mother Russia – the nation of Tolstoy and Tchaikovsky, Sputnik and Putin – may turn out to be the default winner of The Great Game.

    Since 1965 [immigration act] USA population has doubled, and trouble more than doubled.

    • Beryl of Oyl August 5, 2022 at 12:11 pm #

      Since the Obama administration, the amount of immigration from the Shithole countries is off the charts.

      We were never going to be allowed to curtail chain immigration, because businesses like Walmart want the government to continue to supply them with a steady stream of customers, because after the last big economic crash, so many Americans were forced to limit discretionary spending, and to cut up their credit cards in particular.

      A worker at a major hospital told me that they all noticed that the foreign hires would do two things as soon as they got here- gain weight (processed food from the mega corporations) and lease an SUV (support the auto industry).

      • EdD August 5, 2022 at 3:07 pm #

        Ron is wrong. Population growth in other countries doesn’t automatically translate into immigration to the US, and the misguided altruism he describes has no bearing on what the US politicians do.

She and Otoosan do not know what to do with their withdrawn, sullen, useless son who graduated with a degree in whatever-whatever but refuses to cut his hair and put on a white shirt and tie to compete for a rapidly-shrinking number of jobs with the corporations. Or even work as a wage slave in the factories or retail. Son seems to have a ‘mental problem’ but there are several million just like him all over the country, industriously competing through a video game network, so he’s in good company.

            Japan, former shrine to ‘lifetime employment’ (get that job, work in company housing, marry a company woman, hit all the numbers and retire at 55 with a decent pension) has followed the western countries into a much more precarious environment. I read somewhere that not one portable DVD-with-speaker player is made in Japan any more. Zero. Even my Panasonic Lumix, a fairly high-tech mid-range SLR, comes out of a Chinese factory.

        Much of the evil is in design. Power supply goes out on a laptop? No more audio? Sorry, have to replace the entire unit. It’s all designed as one.

        I have an $1800 H-P laptop / tablet unit that has gone through two of its cute, thin, fancy aluminum keyboards. One key doesn’t work and BINGO you’re looking at a $ 300 replacement. So now I’m using a $ 40 Logitech bluetooth unit that works better than my original in any case.

          • Beryl of Oyl August 5, 2022 at 3:11 pm #

            I’m no expert myself, but the government pushed farming methods that worked in places where it rained a lot, on the Great Plains, where it didn’t.

            There was a severe drought, and you can’t keep plowing during a severe drought.

            It’s still a controversy, exactly how it happened, but the way we learned it in school made it seem like the ignorant Okies ignored a century of good agricultural practices.

            Here’s one article that focuses on the government’s role:

            The United States Government’s Role in the Dust Bowl

            How the U.S. government contributed to both the downfall and recovery of the Great Plains and its farmers

            B of O. Paula

            One of the main creators of the Dust Bowl was the way they plowed. Contour plowing followed the lay of the land in the East to prevent water runoff from eroding the land.

            Well, the west has neither contours no run off. It does have wind and lots of it at times. When that wind blew across that nicely furrowed miles of plowed land, it peeled it up and blew it way up in the sky. I think Europe got alot of our topsoil. The dust storms were awesome, but they drove the folks off the land. Some areas of the Great Plains had 20 feet of topsoil before and less than a foot after.

            BTW, when the “experts” finally figured it out, the correct method was to divide up the land into sections so that the wind could not peel up dirt for miles and miles of plowed land. Windbreaks between the sections would slow down the wind near the surface.

            That is the good news. The bad news is corporate farming that is undoing alot of the “fix” to get more production from those windbreak areas. More bad news is that the Ogallala aquifer that supplies sprinkler water for marginal crop land is drying up. When finished, Man is going to turn the Great Plains into a desert again. It will take millions of years to recover its fertility and aquifer.

          • Alzaebo August 5, 2022 at 4:40 pm #

            The extensive root system of the Plains grasses holding the soil were ripped up to plant wheat in a huge government-subsidised ag program.

            More like a government planning failure. Pretty sure that land had been handed to the Indians when they were moved from their original homes.
            But yeah, plowing up the prairie was a bad thing to do.
            My dad was in the CCC, which was a government works program that did a lot of good. They did plant millions of trees and they created a national park where I live now.
            My dad built paths and fought forest fires where he was.
            I still support setasides for marginal land, although you have people just as ignorant as the Okies screaming about “farmers getting paid not to plant”, even today.
            Yes, there is land not suitable for plowing and land better used for wetlands and land better used for wildlife and land better used to protect waterways.
            But if you don’t pay the owners not to rip it up, they will rip it up.
            So a wise people support protecting their country, including its land, waters and wildlife.

          They don’t want people being exposed to reality.
          The reason social media is being censored is that we the people were using it to spread news and opinions horizontally, without censorship.

          Then came social media and we started calling out the bullshit, real time. The clever memes were the broadsheets of the 21st century.
          Our rulers were alarmed! How dare we contradict their edicts!
          Starting in 2017, using Russigate as their excuse, they hauled the CEOs of Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Google in front of Congress and threatened them with dire consequences if they didn’t start censoring the uppity proles.
          The result is what we have today – people who speak out being censored, banned and even imprisoned.
          Everyone else sees this and self-censors accordingly.
          But they are not done yet. They won’t be satisfied until there is complete compliance with the Official Narrative and no one dares to speak out.

      I said quite some time ago that I could imagine the US splitting up, and there have been recent calls for discussion of the concept in several states.

      I could imagine something similar happening in parts of Europe, too.

      • JohnAZ August 5, 2022 at 3:48 pm #

        The EU and America have no choice but to split up. Why?

        Because people in both cannot even talk to each other, have little in common, are ethnocentritic, and do not have governments that represent all diverse sides. The US used to have a representative government, but the advent of the Deep State against the people has stopped that. Congress, with an approval rating hovering around 12%, no longer represents the people.

        To those folks who are in denial about the possibility, look around. USSR and the Balkans are good examples.

        The EU is a recent creation that has no reason to exist. Eventually places with no reason to exist, do not.

        • Night Owl August 5, 2022 at 6:29 pm #

          The EU was created to further the centralization project. Getting Europe in lockstep would have been nearly impossible without the EU. European countries share few common values and populations are very homogenous.

          And, unsurprisingly, it is the EU now trying to force medical tyranny and the digital ID and Internet of Bodies on member states.

      • Paula D August 5, 2022 at 2:56 pm #

        But China already has a good deal of US property.
        They don’t have to overthrow the government to get it, that is how the US works, he who has the money makes the rules and gets the loot.
        They had to overthrow the USSR because the wealth was owned by the people, with the bureaucrats supposedly as trustees.
        But starting in the 80s, the bureaucrats were wooed by US capitalists and promised great riches if they would overthrow the government.
        I have a facebook friend who was a young Russian immigrant in the 80s and she was hired to translate for the Russians who came to America to be wooed by the likes of Rockefeller.
        She said she didn’t understand what was going on, but she knew that it wasn’t a fishing trip, they way they told her. Now she understands.
        Anyway, they held a referendum in the USSR in early 1991 and the vast majority of the people voted to keep the Soviet Union.
        But just like in the USA money won. The leaders of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus signed a decree dissolving the USSR and that was the end of that.
        The citizens were thrown into instant poverty and violence and they died like flies, called “life expectancy dropped dramatically” by the media spinmasters.
        One of the podcasters on Triggernometry is a Russian immigrant and he talked about what happened. One day people had jobs, food, pensions and security and the next day they had nothing.
        But I digress. Americans have never had security and have always had the knowledge that money can buy anything and nothing can stand in its way.

        • Anthea August 6, 2022 at 1:20 am #

          @ Paula D:

          I appreciate your explanation. I was never clear about how the collapse of the USSR came about–which I gather was that US capitalistd simply bought off the government.

          The same scenario is in progress in the US. China has been purchasing national assets and bought the government some time ago. Others, too, such as various oligarchs, have been buying US asset, such as farmland. So we may be seeing a re-play of the breakup of the USSR on our own soil.

          Maybe we’ll see the US government collapse at the federal level and the US split up into several separate nations. That would mean an end to federal funding of every kind: Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, public housing, welfare, food stamps, education, and probably a lot of other things I am unaware of.

          Breakaway states would be hard-pressed to pay for any of this, even things they have been partially funding all along. They might very well have their hands full trying to keep some kind of lid on crime and violence.

          If the govenments of the breakaway nations were honest (which is not very likely), they’d kick out the big banks, probably by encouraging them to sell their “assets” (mortgages and other loans) to community banks for pennies on the dollar (take what they offer or pound sand), with the community banks re-writing the loans to reflect a much-reduced price.

          If the breakaway states didn’t fo this, the big banks would own pretty much everthing: farmland, retail, most people’s homes, and probably such manufacturing as still exists in the US. All businesses, even very small ones, are very dependent on credit, as are farms. Credit could be hard to come by, and I suspect that if the new nation kicked out the big banks (as Russia did, at least in the case of the Rothschilds) some form of revenge would ensue.

    Well, ladies and germs;

    It appears that the incident in Taiwan is winding down from the potentially kinetic to the incentivised negotiation phase;

    The Chinese have now, as an incentive to peace, has offered evry citizen in Taiwan free education;

    CHINA SET TO PURSUE “REEDUCATION” OF TAIWAN CITIZENS FOLLOWING REUNIFICATION: China’s ambassador to France said Wednesday that Beijing would pursue a program of reeducation of the Taiwanese population following the upcoming reunification of the country with the mainland. Chinese diplomat Lu Shaye threatened a crackdown on Taiwanese independence groups and said they would receive the same treatment as China’s Uyghur religious minorities. (AC: China will likely seek to depopulate Taiwan immediately after reunification in order to run its reeducation program and put loyalist mainland Chinese officials in charge of taking control of the island’s local economy. Expect Taiwanese who express loyalty to the Chinese Communist Party to be returned to positions of authority in government and business, while those who are viewed as politically unreliable are banished to work camps on the mainland and possibly its far western provinces. The ethnic and political cleansing will likely be more drastic than that which is occurring in Hong Kong now. – M.M.)

    Sooo, a tempest in a teapot….The Uyghurs, a minority in China, now receive this benefit…not unlike our minority population in the US….

    …And…and here’s hoping for a “just transition”””

    WEF: DECARBONIZE SIX CRITICAL INDUSTRIES: According to a report from the World Economic Forum (WEF), 80% of global emissions come from just six industries: oil, natural gas, steel, cement, aluminum, and ammonia. The WEF report calls for “deep decarbonization” of these industries by adopting “net-zero transformation” of urban expansion and agriculture, which would cut fertilizer use. The report calls for “more decisive action” to drive $2.1 trillion in investment capital to improve technology and develop new green infrastructure. (AC: The WEF admits that these steps will drive up costs for end users. Input costs for so-called “green” steel will increase by 25-50%, prices for green cement will increase 50-85%, green aluminum prices will increase by 38%, and green ammonia prices will increase by 10-100%. The report warns that rising energy and fertilizer costs during this process will disrupt food and energy security, adding that “governments will have to carefully monitor and balance these cost increases for a just transition.” – M.S.)

    And further…

    CANADA’S PRAIRIE PROVINCES IN REVOLT: The Prairie Provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba unanimously rejected Ottawa’s latest proposed fertilizer reduction policy. The policy, part of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s new climate plan, includes a reduction in nitrogen emissions from fertilizers. The fertilizer reduction plan is similar to one that the Netherlands government is trying to impose on its farming industry, an action that resulted in open rebellion and civil unrest across the country. On Wednesday, the premiers (equivalent to governors in the U.S.) referred to Trudeau’s climate plan as a “starvation policy” for Canadians. (AC: Trudeau appears committed to the fertilizer reduction component of the climate plan even though analysts believe that the proposed 30% reduction in fertilizer use would significantly reduce crop yields and harm national food security. Expect strong resistance from the traditionally conservative prairie provinces as government credibility is already diminished over the use of strong-arm tactics by security services in putting down the freedom trucker prote

    Yesss…there will be a “just transition”…it will be a Utopia, and you will like it…WEF got BIG plans for you….

        Up until recently, folks had an abundance of resources to work with and lots of space to move into if things became too congested.

        There is not a big increase of greedy pigs, but a big increase in competition for the resources that remain. Man has always had to compete and it is getting worse.

        Man has not changed, his conditions have. The wealthy are consolidating their resources right now. It will do them little good in the next Turning.

    The Ukraine end game is for Russian to annex the east up to the Dnieper river, and then turn the rest into a giant “West bank/Gaza strip.”

    In other words, a perpetual “failed state” deeply in debt, racked with division, corrupt, and fully dependent on NGOs and foreign aid for basic necessities/functionality

    Like the Israelis, the Russians will still hafta launch the occasional bombings, missile strikes and assassinations to maintain Ukraine as a giant open air prison/ghetto…

        The way this all ends up might just piss everyone off, no matter what part of the political spectrum you are on. It goes like this.

        Russia becomes a prosperous and happy Christian nation, and her state sponsored religion will be unified. She’s well off because she still has a vast portion of the world’s remaining unexploited natural resources.

        Russians won’t be wasting time or energy on disputes about how to interpret the Bible. They are part of the Eastern Orthodox Church, the part that split off from fallen Rome in around 1054 AD. The Eastern Church never had any Christian religious wars or Reformations. The Russians will have internal harmony due to all being on the same page and having a common culture that. Outside Russia’s borders will be business as usual with the road warrior stuff accompanied by widespread ignorance, cultural confusion, poverty, and church leaders who still won’t be able to get along with each other or work in any sort of unified way. That might be a result of all the satanic stuff they allowed in like the “Prosperity Gospel” or the pedophilia and homosexuality going in the Roman Clergy.

        I wonder if James H K believes in a real satan that is a self aware entity from some other dimension – or if satan is just the label we place on a way of thinking?

    • BackRowHeckler August 5, 2022 at 12:05 pm #

            The Ukraine part of the world has a lot of flat and rich terrain that is prime farmland. It was the perfect place for armies to go marching through. Warriors on fast horses loved the place and there was probably plenty of stored food for the soldiers to pillage. It’s the corridor that ancient armies from the East or the West used in search of new territory to conquer. Thats why Western Ukraine is such a mess. The people living there are very bitter about the horrors endured in all the past centuries whereby various empires came in, conquered, and then left them stranded as the latest empire came in and mistreated them because they were the “other”. The land has always been a broken breadbasket. Read about the terrible famine that happened in Ukraine as the Soviets took over.

    • Paula D August 5, 2022 at 3:16 pm #

      Ukrainians don’t breed like the Palestinians do. They won’t be so overcrowded.
      Also they have resources lusted after by the west, plus the west can use them to stage missiles to periodically launch at Russia (I guess that part is the same.)
      They will be stripped even more than they already are. Poland will probably annex Galacia (and then regret it).

          Likely what will be built is a new living infrastructure built out of the scraps of the old. Lack of motor fuels will make large parts of America’s suburban areas obsolete. Some upscale homes will turn into maintenance nightmares and the hassels of living in them won’t be worth it. People in the US will start living in what they can actually afford, and that will be small shacks close enough to stores and places where they’ll be working.

          We’ll be getting to the places we must go via public transportation, motorbikes, or bicycles. We’ll be living in a post apocalyptic junkyard, and people clever with their hands and mechanically minded will figure out ways to create things needed out of things discarded. We won’t be building any new schools for a while. All the old ones will be abandoned due to the lack of resources to support such a massive inventory of buildings, sports complexes, cafeterias, parking lots, yellow school buses etc. All gone. Instead, a former school teacher who lives in the neighborhood starts a school that happens in her living room or in her basement, etc. Her pupils walk or ride bikes over to her house.

          I’ll predict that during the first decade of the long emergency a lot more demolition than construction will be going on. Parts of demolished buildings will be used to make new ones. My German ancestors/relatives did this in Munich after they’d been bombed and burned out. My mom was quite good with a hammer because she’d spent many hours in ‘1944/45 pulling nails out of bombed lumber and pounding them straight for reuse. Her brothers were shoveling and moving debris with wheelbarrows. They created a dry living space for themselves out of the basement. This is how people end up living when they have an out of control government with delusions of grandeur.

      Alternatively, in a few days Biden will be released from this human-like cocoon and his true alien cyborg appearance will reveal itself to the public.

        The Biden crime family has many tenticles that are attached to prominent political figures. As long as Joe Biden remains president, no action will be taken against him or his tratertious accomplices. However, Biden’s obvious diminished cognitive abilities have created the need to get rid of him as soon as possible.

        The problem here is that Biden’s replacement is scheduled to be Kamala Harris. This would be a total disaster. Those who control the country will avoid this scenario at all costs. Biden’s replacement must be a reasonably coherent person who will allow all current criminal activity to continue unpunished.

        Perhaps Nancy Pelosi is being considered for the presidency. This could explain Pelosi’s latest political publicity stunt involving a trip to Taiwan. We will soon see even more dramatic political shenanigans taking place, because time is quickly running out.

          I can see the Swamp making moves to get him moved up the line because he is deeply connected to all the right DC players.

          On the other hand, I’m not sure they’d want to make it any more obvious he and his buddies at State are running all aspects of US foreign policy. These types place a premium on plausible deniability.

            Of course you could make a few adjustments to the hard and fast rule, but overall it’s a good idea.

            Donald Trump was 70 when he started, but he had never held office before, so he wasn’t one of those hanging around forever doing worse than nothing.

          • Disaffected August 5, 2022 at 5:13 pm #

            Sixty, tops. Fifty five or fifty straight up would be even better. Seventy year olds tend not to give a fuck, since they have one foot in the grave anyway. And they damn sure don’t get wiser with age.

        While the Chinese invasion come before or after this?

        • thirdcoastlegend August 5, 2022 at 3:47 pm #

          I’m not convinced the Chinese need to invade at all.

          They can suffocate Taiwan’s economy quite easily. The sand embargo was a very economically and politically astute move.

          No one in the West will get riled up about sand. The dummies at State probably have zero understanding how important sand is to industrial economies.

          On top of that, the Chinese exercises are already wreaking havoc on commercial shipping and air traffic to and from Taiwan. It’s already a de facto blockade.

          • JohnAZ August 5, 2022 at 4:02 pm #

            Yes, remember what the US did with Cuba? Blockades work. Think the Ronald Reagan will fire at the blockading Chinese ships or aircraft? Nah.

    People don’t know or don’t care that they’re living in a censored society pumped full of state sanctioned propaganda.

    And there is nothing they can do about it

    Their fake independence

    But they know that too
    So they have the fake solutions to your poor and powerless man’s problems

      We learned about “natural resources” when I was in elementary school. I found it boring, because what I wanted to know about other countries was their culture.

      One thing that stuck with me was the term “breadbasket”. We had those amber waves of grain, and that was why we weren’t starving like the children in China.

      I still didn’t understand how finishing my cream corned from a can helped those hungry kids at all though.

    • Edge Lordin’ August 5, 2022 at 12:39 pm #

      The US has been a client state for decades

      And the Chinese are quick learners.
      And they know there is room for another controller.

      They know those who identify the controlling people/nation are quickly silenced and marginalized

      So they seek the same protection: to vilify those who dare expose their identity.
      Until people dare not speak the truth
      Until they are gaslit enough to question themselves for identifying the truth

      Long story short: Kavvia your China-hate racism is disgusting and you need to be silenced

    BREAKING: China has announced the end to the following cooperation with the US

    1) Calls with leaders
    2) Defense meetings
    3) Maritime Security Consultation
    4) Climate Change Talks
    5) Anti-Drug cooperation
    6) Transnational crimes

    I didn’t know China was “cooperating” on those things, but oh well.

    BTW, I got that link off of Caitlin Johnstone’s Twitter feed.

    She has been mentioned here before. As I’ve said, I like to read a well thought out and coherent argument from someone I usually don’t agree with on much, it keeps me sharper.

    So, I find Ms. Johnstone generally disagreeable (she might have the same opinion of me if she’d ever heard of me), but lately she has been scoring a lot of points.

    A real voice for these times.

    A also found this summation of a piece by Alan McCloud at her Substack:

    New Media Are As Intertwined With Imperial Power As Old Media

    Alan MacLeod has a new article out with Mintpress News showing how most of the supposedly independent “fact-checking” organizations which Facebook has partnered with to police the information people are allowed to see on the platform about the war in Ukraine are, in fact, funded by the United States government.

    “Most of the fact-checking organizations Facebook has partnered with to monitor and regulate information about Ukraine are directly funded by the U.S. government, either through the U.S. Embassy or via the notorious National Endowment for Democracy (NED),” MacLeod writes.

    NED is indeed notorious because, as MacLeod explains, it was set up to do overtly many of the operations which the CIA used to perform covertly, like circulating propaganda in empire-targeted nations, funding foreign uprisings, and facilitating the 2014 coup in Ukraine which set in motion the events that would eventually lead to Russia’s invasion of the nation this past February.

          A damn sight better than being blasted through the stratosphere on an aluminum tube, which might decide to separate mid-journey. Watch for maintenance schedules to be cut or fibbed on before long (like the Alaska Airlines tragedy) – the first step in the demise of the airlines.

          I’m frankly amazed that there haven’t been more crashes, either the machine going on the fritz, losing bits – or suicide events like that China Eastern spectacle. When I saw the security camera footage of something sizable speeding straight for the ground with no attempt to level out I knew it was an intentional act.

        Great comment BRH!!!

        Brilliant AND concise (unlike me).

        Night owl, are you mechanically inclined? If so, perhaps you are better off buying the best example of a rust-free, well-kept older car with minimum electronics and maximum modernity.

        Perhaps a carbureted Mk2 Golf 1781cc 5-speed is a better bet to stay on the road longer. It is modern enough, infinitely more civilized than a Beetle, yet not too complicated. Or a 1588cc Mk1 Golf. Or a 1970s Opel Kadett.

        The 540i is buried with electronics. Also, if things in Germany are as bad as some say, and it appears inevitable as the supply of nat gas and oil take a much greater hit than 1973, unless the Germans take to the streets and the SPD/Green govt implodes, the govt will ration energy: this week Daimler-Benz and VW run, next week Opel, Ford, BMW.

        What will this do to the parts availability? ON TOP of current issues?

        In the US, I thought I might need a Mk2 VW RH rear brake caliper. I could not locate one on-line. Fortunately, the caliper was not the problem.

        • Night Owl August 6, 2022 at 4:10 pm #

          Soc,

          If the globocapitalists get us to the point where they are rationing energy and food as a full takedown of the global economy is implemented, the money is going to be worthless and all we will have left are the supplies in our basement and our local networks.

          Our current family wagon is an 12-year-old C-Class. Picked it up a few years ago to do road trips and the daily stuff. It is also full of electronics, and they have all lasted well over 10 years with no real issues.

          If the Great Reset goes through, the last thing I will worry about is a car with too many electronics. The complexity of the machine will be of no importance when the key issues are surviving with worthless currency and avoiding the digital ID dragnet.

          I actually think it makes more sense to invest in things you need or want (or a combination of both), and keep your savings account lean. They want to turn your cash into CBDC, and if they do that, you ain’t going to access it without playing the game.

    At least this kid got a real lesson in how the US economy is currently functioning. Still, what did the perp all buy for $15 at this stand, is homemade lemonade that expensive these days?

    Article follows:

    11-year-old boy scammed after man uses counterfeit $100 bill at lemonade stand, police say

    Police in Washington are asking the public for help identifying a man they say used a counterfeit $100 bill to buy a drink from a child’s lemonade stand, leaving the boy profitless.

    The Everett Police Department reported that over the summer an 11-year-old boy named Jeremy spent his allowance money to set up a lemonade stand outside his home in the city’s Puget Sound region, about 25 miles north of Seattle.

    “As he worked in the sun trying to earn a little extra spending money, he was approached by the pictured suspect, who offered him a 100-dollar bill for a drink but asked for exact change,” police said.

    The boy, police said, used his allowance money to give the man $85 in change.

    When the man left, police said, the boy went to a local gas station where he learned the $100 bill was fake and he was out all of his allowance money.

            Sorry, spell check error. I mean The Great White Throne Judgement.” Hopefully, you’re referring to the “Final Judgement” found in Acts 17:31. The Great White Throne Judgement is when “every human being who has not responded by faith to God’s grace throughout human history will stand before Christ at the Great White Throne Judgment. After the present heaven and earth pass away, a city of indescribable beauty will descend from heaven. God will restore the world and dwell with His people in perfect harmony forever.”

            FYI – Just as I pay my Energy bill and then get to toast my bread without understanding coal-powered or nuclear or dam generation or distribution or sub-stations, I am an end consumer running on this simple wisdom:

            God is good. Satan is bad.

            I repent my sins and try my best to follow His Law. I follow The Golden Rule and would rather die of thirst than take an 11 year-old boy for a glass of lemonade much less for $85.

            If I do that from here to eternity, my toaster just might work when I plug it into the wall socket on Judgement Day (God willing).

        — If you don’t think a loving God and and afterlife exists then that wouldn’t be a problem.

        The only possible hurdle is being charged with a crime and being convicted.

        Neither of those things is typically any sort of real threat if you are in the cool kids group.

        And near as I can tell , getting into and / or conforming to the cool kids group is never remotely as logistically or objectively difficult as people claim it is.

        Your typical American auto mechanic, or your typical American High School Cheerleader , would in fact fit in in North Korea easily enough.

        It’s the lack of Ipods , optometry , air conditioning , and large Mocha Frappes that they would have trouble adapting to.

        — For others , anything they do is justifiable.

        Simple as that.

        They CAN believe in a loving God , do such a thing , and still sleep the sleep of the just.

        Again , it is very simple ;

        God loves THEM .

        And do not even the best of people routinely assume a free pass from their loved ones?

        That kid ?

        Well , I don’t buy that hyper specific fetishizing of childhood myself.

        No life stage is more transient than childhood.

        The , ” kid ” , objectively, will be a 30 year old by the time you even get around to an indictment anyway ,

        and the 30 year old somehow had it coming.

            “[…] We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
            who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
            With the Father and the Son he is worship[p]ed and glorified.
            He has spoken through the Prophets.
            We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
            We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
            We look for the resurrection of the dead,
            and the life of the world to come. Amen.”

            When protestants refer to the ‘one holy catholic and apostolic Church’, they mean the whole kit and caboodle, as in the actual meaning of catholic – small ‘c’ – not the Roman Catholic Church. They’re just more inclusive (a bad word, I know), that’s all. They mean all of Christ’s people, which is what The Church is.

            Personally, I’m not greatly into the whole denominational thing, which I suppose makes kind of in the CS Lewis camp.

            If one were being picky, one could suggest that ‘Roman Catholic’ is an oxymoron. 🙂

    I get so angry thinking about what Bill Clinton and those fucking free trade agreements have done. Perot hated the thought of it but I think he even understated all the damage it would cause.

    We lost American jobs by the millions. We lost American manufacturing and the ability to source and buy something as trivial as a mask. Clinton destroyed our currency by lifting all the laws put into place after the first Great Depression. He transferred our wealth into the hands of the global elite, ruined our currency, and turned China into a behemoth war machine which we will most certainly deal with.

    In as simple as attributing all of our problems to one POS, I can certainly assign 50% of the damage to that coke snorting, lying, piece of garbage, Bill Clinton.

    To the rest since then, minor awards and honorable mentions. Barack Obama duly noted.

      Back when credit card debt and fraud was in the news, someone in my family was trying to research how it was that a major card could be charging what used to be called usury rates.

      I happened to be watching a show on PBS featuring an interview with the head of an agency known as the OCC; the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency,

      I hadn’t known of it’s existence or purpose before, but they were interviewing the head of the agency on the topic of consumer credit, and boy was she a miserable pro-industry anti-working America arrogant bitch.

      I looked it up, and she was appointed by Bill Clinton.

      A lot if not all government agencies we thought were put in place to protect the consumer were actually hard at work against us.

    QUOTE:***But the process could conceivably invite an attempted Chinese takeover of the USA, if not militarily, then in a way similar to America’s asset-stripping operations in the collapsed Soviet Union of the 1990s, a looting spree…***

    I very much doubt the Chinese — more specifically, the CCP — will be able to pull that off. Currently they can’t even manage anything properly on their very own home turf, which is in an absolute mess. All the capital China has is desperately trying to get out. Frankly, I think the days of the CCP may very well be numbered. And the CCP will only have its own greed, malignity and stupidity to blame.

    • thirdcoastlegend August 5, 2022 at 3:17 pm #

      Yes, the collapse of the $55 trillion Chinese real-estate Ponzi would definitely take down the CCP and possibly lead to civil wsr in China.

      That would be terrible for the Chinese people, but an overall win for the world because it would completely discredit China as a model for and source of central control.

At the time I thought it was penitence of some sort, but he’s come back refreshed for another bout of mass murder. Note that he says quite openly in that interview that the digital IDs are just what we need to manage future global pandemics.

    “What’s ahead — like a few months down the road? Hysteria and chaos, if the ‘Joe Biden’ regime can help it…”

    One person’s hysteria and chaos is another person’s ruling template to further agendas and social re-engineering aims and goals to transform American Life into something unrecognizable and ugly and inherently not-American.

    ‘America’ as an ideal and as a People has been Cancelled. Ruled null and void. A relic of the past that stubbornly stands in the way of the Not So Great Reset Regret and One (‘We Are The World, We Are The Children) World Disorder.

    We are constantly being told that Resistance Is Futile and that The Faux gods Who Lust To Rule Over All must and will prevail. And They certainly will… if We the People surrender and give in to their generational pathology.

    “Twice vaxxed, twice boosted, and twice recent Covid-19 patient Dr. Anthony Fauci warned this week that the unvaxxed would ‘get into trouble’ as the seasons turn this year.”

    What The Grifter Doctor ‘The Science!’ neglected to say was that those who have taken the punctures of death will in WORSE trouble than those who didn’t. But for anyone in the unholy State Culture to say such a thing would the highest sin and worst kind of heresy. And besides that, They would not even entertain such a thought as that would indicate that They had not fully surrendered every speck of critical thinking left in their disgraced and punctured and leaking bodies.

    “The regime’s back-up plan is the comical monkeypox…”

    ‘Here we come…
    Spreading down your street.
    We get the funniest looks from
    All that we make weak.
    Hey, we are the Monkeypox,
    We’re not monkeying around
    We’re so bad and scary
    We’re sure to put you down.
    Yeah, we are the Monkeepox
    You never know where we’ll be found.
    So you’d better get ready,
    We’re comin to your town!’

    “If things roll that way, there will be absolutely no trust left in the US government.”

    Isn’t there an old Country song that goes, ‘You Can’t Lose What You Never Had’?

    “Satan is the father of lies and we have become Satanic, being and doing evil, most especially to ourselves…”

    The Dark and The Light have always dwelled together in the human heart and spirit. Two sides of the wide spectrum of the human soul. The Dark is winning right now. Fine for Them. Let Them get all happy and complacent. ‘Cause no one yet has found a way to cancel the embedded Master Matrix default program of Karma. The worst They get, the worst They have in store for Their future.

    And those are the days worth living for… for those who refuse to succumb to the Dark.

    Hey, hey…

        “Biden twice vaxxed, twice boosted. Getting the Paxlovid treatments in spite of the warning about rebounds.”

        We can expect the following response from Grifter Doctor ‘The Science!’ or some other overpaid and overexposed Medical Mafia Mouthpiece:

        ‘Our Dear President Czar Biden having so-called-Rebounded should not dissuade anyone from getting ‘The Vax!’. Because of his very busy public schedule of continuous earthshaking events that will shape the future of humankind for thousands of generations to come… he has been unable to take our prescribed ‘The Vax!’ treatments as we have recommended to him.

        ‘We told His Holey-ness that he needs to be vaxxed at least 10 TIMES before he sees any results and boosted another 20 or so. Thus, there is nothing wrong with effectiveness of ‘The Vax!’ or our preferred recommendation of receiving boosters FOREVER AND EVER. That remains the proper protocol in the opinion of our Authorized and Boosted State Board of America Medical Infallibility.’

        ‘The public should be so advised.’

    Oh Kamala, why are you such a complicated cackling carpie?

    The outpour of support for Brittney Griner in the wake of her recent sentence of nine years in Russian prison for having cannabis oil comes from White House officials like Vice President Kamala Harris. After the news broke, Harris tweeted: “With today’s sentencing, Russia continues its wrongful detention of Brittney Griner. She should be released immediately. @POTUS and I, and our entire Administration, are working every day to reunite Brittney, as well as Paul Whelan, with loved ones who miss each of them dearly.”

    However, users were quick to pull up receipts of Harris’ career past as an attorney general in California, notably how she sent over a few dozen people to prison over cannabis charges (via Forbes).

    One Twitter user reminded her of this, replying to her tweet: “So when are you & Biden going to commune the sentencing of all the people whom you locked up over cannabis possession in California as AG?”

    However, back in 2019, Harris tweeted before becoming VP: “It’s time to end mass incarceration. This includes legalizing marijuana, sentencing reforms, and abolishing private prisons. With the addition of job training and education, these actions will reduce crime and help build healthy communities.”

    We’re still scratching our heads with this one.

      Brittney is an Ugly American, that is all. Arrogant Americans who think that other country’s rules do not apply to them.

    Okay, no disrespect to the 76 year old couple who died in a lightning strike near the White House grounds, but honestly, who these days would decide to visit the cesspool that is Washington, D.C. for an anniversary trip of all things?

    Apparently they were close to a metal statue in Lafayette Park, which served as the lightning rod. No word on condition of the statue, but I’m sure it is one that BLM would have wanted torn down anyway.

    Further conspiracy thoughts come to mind on this event. Could the lightening strike have been a top secret weather operation implemented by the Russians or Chicoms that went awry? Is the Secret Service covering something up about how this all occurred, and was it really a natural lightning bolt?

    Why hasn’t Biden come out with a statement of condolences to the family of this couple? I mean come on man, you are sitting around quarantined in the White House attic with nothing else to do!

        Not sure what a false flag is , and I would rather type than Google it.

        Or , rather , Castro was apparently a true believer. Robert McNamara claimed that years later when he got to talk to Castro about the Cuban missile crisis ,

        Castro told him that his advice to the Russians

        Was , ” Nuke the bastards now ! ”

        Uh…… you realize that means that you and Cuba would be vaporized too ?

        Castro answered , ” sure . What , you think I’m retarded?

        Of course I knew that.

        But , hey , you’re bastards , and you got it coming ! Fuck you imperialist Pigs! ”

        ( or generally words to that effect. )

        Well , I reckon Communists , and not even the first string , headliner Communists, but the hayseed backwater Communists, murder the president ?

        That’s guaranteed, no questions asked , nuclear war.

        So , yeah , they covered that up.

        Otherwise , Oswald acted alone and got lucky.

        It was merely coincidentally a nice bonus that with Kennedy out of the way , going on a Vietnam adventure was a bit easier.

        — But I think that would have happened anyway.

        Howard Hughes may have been a pervert , and J Edgar Hoover may have been a fag , but they both knew where the bear shit in the woods.

        If Kennedy had been for real , the first fucking thing he would have done was fire Hoover.

        The FBI as a threat to Trump was something new ?

        Bullshit.

        Woodward’s ” Deepthroat ” was the FBI.

        Nah , Hoover had the goods on the Kennedy’s , and Vietnam was gonna happen anyway.

        Eff , time for a digression !

        Granted , the Italian Mafia existed before Prohibition, but about as many Americans had ever heard of the Mafia , as could tell you the name of the CEO of Anheizer – Busche .

        The FBI was AL Capone.

        So yeah , Prohibition was a deep , sweeping , systematic, methodical , evil deep state conspiracy , except that it was about as blatant as an elephant painted neon pink.

        Sherlock fucking Holmes not required.

        I don’t know if the average Russian ever really believed , ” The Checkist is your best friend ! ”

        But apparently millions of Americans have sincerely believed that Prohibition and Watergate were their own ideas , and the FBI merely their help mate, not their manipulator !

        But North Korean propaganda is supposed to be cracked , compared to that Mickey Mouse shit ?!

        Anyway , the typical Soviet supermarket worked roughly about the same as your local Department of Motor Vehicles ;

        You stand in line for three hours behind Uzbeks getting security clearances or some shit , only to be told ,

        We don’t know.

        We don’t care.

        OUR requirement is YOUR problem .

        Fuck you.

        ( BTW, how can I say , ” Death to the United States” , IN the United States , and in PRINT , and not get deported ??

        Ask the DMV.

        They claim I don’t exist ! )

        But folks who run a supermarket the way you run your DMV’s , are gonna invade Nebraska??

        The Cold War was a hoax.

        A power grab , but not a power grab directed at us.

        A power grab directed at you.

        Moving on —

        BLM ?

        A power grab , primarily orchestrated by White folks , but white folks who wouldn’t piss on your white ass if you were dieing of thirst.

        Cigarettes?

        The State scarcely has a better revenue cash cow .

        They don’t give a fuck about your second – hand smoke .

        It’s a power grab , and primarily directed at you non – smokers.

        Go right ahead and get your jollies looking
        Down your noses at us smokers ,

        While they fuck you over.

        I don’t think 911 was an inside job , for the simple reason I think that would be giving the Aryan Master Race — which does NOT include you — waaaaay to much credit.

        But it served well enough for another power grab.

        Wait a minute …… was Sandy Hook one of those mass shooting things ?

        The salient thing I notice about any and all gun control advocates , of whatever stripe , on whatever pretext , is ,

        THEY NEVER PROPOSE DISARMING THEMSELVES.

        Again , never met a control advocate , of whatever stripe , on whatever pretext that wasn’t all eager – Beaver to throw a few more million at the Gestapo.

        At least you can get a good laugh at their stupidity in thinking THEY will always control the Gestapo.

        D-E-L-U-S-I-O-N-S O-F F-U-C-K-I-N-G G-R-A-N-D-U-E-R.

        Anyway , no gun control advocate gives a fuck whether you or your shitty kid gets shot.

        It’s another power grab.

      Well , I told folks that stigmatizing the Confederate flag was going to boomerang on them with a vengeance.

      Though , admittedly I am rather shocked at how quickly it happened.

      One of the most common human follies seems to be that in the fun of fucking someone over , they become completely oblivious to the rather obvious circumstance that it sets a precedent for their own fucking over.

      On the other hand ,

      Communicating threats is supposed to be a felony in many states now ,

        Only people who love the White race can love the Confederacy and the Confederate flag in the right way. It’s not just about rebellion for the sake of rebellion – or being a rebel without a cause. It was about saving our Race, and thus being a Rebel with a Cause.

      Doubt it. Multiple rights were infringed, and the judge was unfit for the trial given her political background. Essentially, the trial was a farce.

      The other issues are that Alex’s case was an infringement on his right to free speech (he expressed an opinion), which is not the same as what the media has done over the past few years.

      Suing McMedia outlets for purveying false information as objective truth would likely fail due to the fact that Obama legalized domestic propaganda through Smith-Mundt just before Trump took office.

      The case sets no precendent other than being one of the most egregious trampling of an American citizen’s rights in modern history.

      I have no idea who that is.

      Short story version :

      My parents are very odd birds.

      One manifestation of that was that up until about age 12 pretty much the only music I listened to was Handel , and Bach.

      Really, the list was that short.

      Well , habit tends to follow habit.

      For the next 25 years I pretty much listened to J S Bach , G F Handel , and Stevie Nicks.

      I was past 40 years of age when I embarked on a study of American music of the 1970’s .

          That was one of K-Dog’s frequent points – that there would be no robot-world because when Robot-Dog’s leg falls of it takes weeks (or months) to get him a new leg. Although our overlords will have priorities when it comes to supply chains, I suppose.

          And I presume they are planning a more compact grid to fit a more compact population. The point remains valid, though. The NHS has had major problems with all its massive digital infrastructure projects. Even their track and trace system was a catastrophe (thank goodness). The effects of simple cock-ups will be unknown until they happen. It may be that the fully vaxxed and ID’d will sometimes find themselves shut out of things, just as those people in India died of starvation because the fingerprint technology wasn’t foolproof, rather than because they hadn’t complied.

          • SoftStarLight August 6, 2022 at 12:53 pm #

            Yeah, it is very inhuman and inhumane. “Sorry, our network is down so you’ll have to go hungry today. There’s simply nothing we can do.” I have no illusions that the globalists will not attempt to take it as far as possible. Did you hear about the “line city” project in Saudi Arabia recently headlined? The city will be designed in the shape of a line across the desert for something like 100 miles. It will be home to like 9 million people who will be warehoused in these towering megastructures. At least that is their blueprint.

          • GreenAlba August 6, 2022 at 1:48 pm #

            Yes, I saw the line project. These people aren’t just evil but clinically insane as well.

    • Soul Forensics August 6, 2022 at 2:01 pm #

      SSL,

      The “line cities” you mention are planned for North America, too.

      Sort of a variation on the original Agenda 21 surveillance city corral.

      Tiny apartments, neighbours ratting on you to improve their social scores, designated ‘green’ spaces to ‘enjoy’ yourself for half-an-hour with other captured dullards, small portion of lean meat once a month if you’re a good boy or girl and achieve your minimum quota of good behaviour points, education and futuristic fantasy schools for youth and re-education for recalcitrant adults (cattle prods for the stubborn?), AI experiments on random or low-credit-point individuals, desolate landscape two blocks and beyond the city lines so that any escape is futile and dangerous (and escape to where? There won’t be any positive, alternative — that is, healthy — communities), and, of course, boosters #634 and beyond for baboonpox which will turn everyone’s ass hole bright red, not distinguishable from those involved in gay orgies in shoebox apartments overlooking broken asphalt and a horizon of tumbleweeds.

      A ‘False Flag’ does NOT mean that an event did not happen. What False Flag really means is that those that were behind an event are NOT the ones being publicly promoted as such. Or, that there were true perps further behind them.

      There are False Flags and then there are False Events. These are not the same thing.

          The emotional take.

          Back in reality, freedom of speech allows one to express opinions without the fear of a lawsuit, federal harassment, or imprisonment.

          There is nothing that justifies trying to bankrupt an individual for expressing an opinion.

          The rage directed at Jones is really an expression of the terror the ragers feel inside, as they are too afraid to say what they know they should, for fear of what others might think.

          Anglo-Saxon-based cultures are shame cultures. Starts when we are kids. Bullying, shaming, and groupthink are encouraged.

          The media has turned Alex into a social pariah for being eccentric.

    I like Jim’s question when did this all begin. Was it when Climate Change was first publicized as a catrophic impending crisis? Around 1991 when future VP Al Gore was in Brazil at a Global Warming summit. Did it have something to do with the establishment of a Plan for a New American Century in 1997 which quickly led to 9/11 and the war on Iraq?
    Did the war on terror provide a disguise for the infiltration and spying on every partner government? It was around this time that Jeffery Epstein’s underage Honey traps were in full swing co-opting western leaders and key players.
    Was it evident after the 2008 financial crisis when QE started and oil prices briefly touched $140 a barrel?
    When all the Global Central Banks began using the opioid of Qualitative Easing did they know it couldn’t be stopped? Did they know that once QE started they could never put down the pipe full of endless free money and virtually zero interest rates?
    There was something different about the media coverage during the Green Revolutions, the Arab Spring, the ISIS attacks, how did ISIS get all those Toyota Trucks? The media was co-opted during the Obama Administration and they never stopped their coordinated bias for Obama and then against Trump.

    I think a combination of the War on Terror and the response to the Financial Crisis started the ball rolling.

    • Disaffected August 5, 2022 at 10:22 pm #

      All good points. The 9-11-2001 Global War of Terror officially started the ball rolling, the 2008 “Financial Crisis” accelerated and confirmed it, and the 2020 ConVid Scam locked it in. There’s no turning back now.

        Historical backup big time.

        LBJ tried to fight the Vietnamese and do the Great Society.

        After he quit in 68, Nixon, Ford, and Carter tried to figure out how to get out of the inflationary mess the 70s presented. It took Paul Volker and really high interest rates plus the 81,82 recession to stop the inflation.

        Will Powell have the same intestinal fortitude in the face of overwhelming tax and spend pressure fron the Left. Indications are he has some support. If he does what is necessary, we are going to pay a heavy price for the Leftists and their dogma of spend, spend and spend.

        BTW, the Left has really gone hypocrisy crazy by calling a tax and spend bill a “inflation reduction bill”. Their arrogance is appalling.

        Just a reminder. In the late 70s,

        Mortgage rates. 17%

        Credit card rates. >20%. Many folks went under with large credit card balances.

        CDs 16%

        Car loans 15%

        These are ones I remember. Add on.

        The Dems are going to destroy this country in one final attempt to show that government benevolence and printing money at will will at long last succeed. Paving the way for the globalists to move in.

          Jazzer,

          One of the reasons they need to raise interest rate is to attract foreign capital into the US, especially now that the $US is no longer viewed as a “safe haven.” To the contrary, its now viewed as a liability, since the US has repeatedly shown that it will seize foreign (or domestic) assets for any reason it sees fit, or none at all.

          On the flip side, the great credit boom of 2000-2020 is now officially played out as well. All the discretionary income is in the hands of a well-heeled few and the masses no longer have the ability to pay, no matter how low the interest rates are. Add on energy shortages, whether real or engineered by fake wars with Russia, and the gig is truly up for the US economy. It might not crash immediately, but it’s damn sure never coming back to the heady days of 1990-2010. Nor do the people with money and power even want it to.

          What we’re seeing now is the long-anticipated end game play out, where all the hoi polloi get liquidated for the good of all, and the righteous “winners” clear the table and cash out with their winnings.

        To continue an earlier thread, I can assure you that the Sandy Hook school massacre was not a ‘false flag’ event, but actually occured as advertised. That, and the massacre of the women in the Petit family 5 years previously in Cheshire cast a pall over the state that continues to this day. One thing I notice about Sandy Hook is that the name of the person who actually perpetrated the murders — Adam Lanza — is rarely, if ever, mentioned. Instead blame is cast on the NRA, Remington Arms, the Gun Culture, Alex Jones, the Federal Ammunition Company — you get the picture. There is definitely a political angle as to how the Sandy Hook school massacre is being spun and remembered. On top of that is the matter of Newtown, Ct itself. It’s a pretty little town with a beautiful, broad main street, but strange things happen in Newtown. In the late 80s the white wife of a black airline pilot disappeared one day, never to be seen again. The pilot is a suspect in her disappearance but was never arrested. Then a few years later another airline pilot murdered his airline stewardess wife — and put her body thru a wood chipper. You probably heard about that one. In 2012 a man named Robert Hoagland disappeared while out mowing his lawn, not to be seen since. Then a few summers ago a UCONN student who grew up in Newtown — and whose mother is a teacher in Newtown Schools (and who’s father, an ESPN producer, was arrested for assaulting kids on a youth sports team) went on a cross state murder and kidnapping spree — wielding a machete.

        A strange town indeed.

        In Ct., quite often things are not what they seem.

        • Disaffected August 6, 2022 at 9:56 am #

          So Jones is saying that it literally didn’t happen at all, as in no one was actually killed? It was all staged, in other words. The false flag scenarios I’ve read previously contended that it was a facilitated event and that Lanza was used as a patsy, a more typical false flag scenario. I still think that was the most likely scenario, as the logistics would have been extremely challenging for a single unsophisticated and apparently disturbed shooter. Any time I see a lone shooter, usually crazed and unstable, pulling off extraordinary feats of marksmanship and tactical savvy I suspect CIA dark ops involvement. It’s a good rule of thumb and it’s almost always accurate, especially considering the political fallout that these things always generate.

          Either way, fining Jones $45M is pure bullshit. The parents haven’t been harmed by his theories, no matter how nutty they eventually prove to be, although we’ll never know the actual truth either way. The CIA boys are pretty good about covering their tracks, at least legally.

          • BackRowHeckler August 6, 2022 at 10:33 am #

            Jones is a provocateur who I’ve never paid attention too.

            These type of lawsuits will be used against other media types from here on in. For example I mentioned above CNN and MSNBC flogging the Russia Collusion hoax for 3 solid years. They knew it was a hoax yet they perpetuated it nevertheless, tying up Trump’s presidency for the whole term.

            Yep, Jones is on the nutty end of the spectrum, for sure.

And the possibilities are always greater than what the average MSM consuming droid thinks they are. Hence ConVid19 and other ongoing scams.

            All I know is I saw (on CNN, live as it was happening as well as later on replay), chopper video shot from above, showing the same groups of kids and teachers walking out one door of the school in single file, going around the side/back of the school, re-entering the school there, then re-emerging out the other door again.

            Looked like a drill.

            Also saw the one dad walking toward a press conference laughing and joking with the people next to him, then gets up to the mic and cameras (while still laughing), then puts his head down, looks up, puts on a somber face and makes his statement amidst strained tears. (yes, I know grief works in different ways for different people, but google it and watch for yourself, it was odd.)

            Also watched Wayne Carver, the medical examiner, awkwardly giggle and smile repeatedly while being interviewed about the autopsies. Maybe he was just a weird dude, who knows..takes an interesting type of person to run a morgue, I suppose? (He himself died in 2019 at age 67. “Carver’s death was natural…but the exact cause was not immediately clear.” Ah.)

            Don’t forget the “potential second shooter in camo” that ran off into the woods, reported live by CNN, and shown from above on camera. Never to be mentioned again. Must not have happened.

            Jones pointed out how these and other anomalies looked “off”. He didn’t threaten any familes, at least not from any evidence that has been presented. Like him or not, as far as is publicly evident, he dindunuffin illegal.

            So of course, people are gonna start asking questions.

            I don’t think the kids weren’t killed, but I do think that it was a false flag, and that Adam Lanza was the fall guy. Like so many other massacres.

          • Paula D August 6, 2022 at 4:16 pm #

            The story was bullshit in all of its versions.
            We were told first that Adam Lanza, a stereotypical 90 pound weakling, carried a couple of hundred pounds of weapons and ammo, broke into the school, shot 26 people dead in 5 minutes and then killed himself. (Later on they changed that story and they said the Bushmaster was in his trunk.)
            Reports of 3 men dressed in black running off into the woods were brushed off as “It was a father who came to decorate cookies”.
            The paramedics did not scoop and run with the children, they left their bodies there. We are told that paramedics can decide if someone is dead or not and that it is appropriate to decide to leave children who were shot 5 minutes before lying there unattended.
            NO! That is not how emergency response works in the US.
            There is no way that paramedics can declare death, it has to be medical control and there is no way that medical control would declare death over the radio for 26 people who were were just shot, especially kids.
            There is the Golden Hour of trauma and there is no way that paramedics would not do their damnedst to save those kids.
            The coroner would not let the parents see their children, he had “artists” draw pictures to show them.
            WTF? That is NOT how things are done in the US. Parents are allowed to see and hold their deceased children.
            The story is bogus and clearly false. Like I said, I don’t know what happened to those kids, but I know damn well that the Official Story is a lie.
            And no amount of Crusher’s media-derived hysterical rants will change my mind.
            I am a Trauma Certified, Medical Control certified, 25 year ER nurse and I call bullshit.
            No way first responders would let injured children bleed out while they just stood by. That is not a believable story.

            Correct. This is the way of the parasite.

            I find 9/11 an apt comparison. Lots of death, lots of different ideas tossed around about why the fishy stuff happened the way it did. Lots of families suffered.

            Many of the 9/11 families, however, are as critical as Jones and have been denied justice.

            This Sandy Hook sideshow is nothing more than an attempt to stifle speech. If they can do this to Jones, they can do it to anyone.

            It is rather telling to see what sorts of folks fall for it, however. Explains why we are where we are.

          • Sean Coleman August 6, 2022 at 6:25 pm #

            RTE (Irish state broadcaster) had a bit about Jones on its news broadcast last night. It also had a recent story about a conspiracy theorist in the US who spent over 2k on emergency rations and then had to throw it all away. It also had the Goerge Floyd story. A few weeks before that they had the black jogger who had been shot dead for no reason (my wife came into me, breathless, to tell me how terrible it was. For no reason! America is not safe for black joggers.)

            If RTE say black then it is white and vice versa.

            I used to think stories like Sandy Hook were unbelievable but I don’t anymore. First rule and last rule: they lie about everything.

            Pg 1 of the Aug 5 NYT has a picture of Brittney seated in the “defendant’s box” in a courtroom outside Moscow after the judge,… imposed her sentence. “She” is wearing a green (?, not sure of the color ’cause I’m a touch colorblind) and where you would expect at least a little protrusion of breasts there is absolutely none. She has an extremely high forehead as if it were the early onset of creeping baldness. It is very similar to the hairline of my 46 y/o first son. “Her” arms sport unartistic tattoos.

            Throw in a height of 6’9,” an observer would not have to be totally crazy to think Brittney might be an actual male.

            As a casual user of pot for the past 50 years I feel sorry for Brittney. I can totally believe “she” snuck in her small supply of hash oil (if that’s what it was) and never gave much thought to this act exploding in her face as it has.

          Agreed. This little dustup will just put more “butts in the seats.”

        I doubt they did it “for the money”. They just wanted the little arsehole to STOP!

        Yet, here he was, last week during the trial, trolling them, and the judge, from his Fortress Prison Planet “Free Speech Systems” studio.

          Sounds pretty funny, TBH.

          So you’re OK to sue someone to shut them up when they have not broken any laws.

          • Night Owl August 6, 2022 at 5:32 pm #

            We are waiting for the Rednut to provide the pertinent legal text and how it applies to Mr. Jones’s situation.

            See my post earlier.

            He would never let us down. 🙂

      Even Rogan admits that Jones is a powerful man and a serious street fighter. He would crush you in the ring.

      No need for parents to ‘keep their mouths shut.’

      Also no need to sue someone for talking about it.

    • Night Owl August 6, 2022 at 5:19 pm #

      The parents are parasites, TBH.

      Why would you cash in on your child’s death?

      A man expresses an opinion, and these parents agree to sue him?

      The logic is quite clear. Use whatever you can to enrich yourself.

      The American Way.

      We have a budding fascist here who thinks words can kill and that feelings are what all judgement must be based.

      He said some stupid things. Stop crying like a 5yr old and get back to your miserable life.

    Says the government that literally welded people into their homes because of covid.

    Hey – nice try, China.

      I think it’s a good thing. I became sick this morning after reading that the Republicans wrote up some sort of position statement on Pelosi’s recent Taiwan visit stating essentially that the Biden Regime is encouraging Chinese aggression due to its waffling weakness and lack of support for the speakers visit. It would be so nice and refreshing to hear politicians say that our borders are gone but we waste time and energy on the borders of fake countries thousands of miles away.

        The real issue that is emerging is that other powers in the world can now kick Uncle Sam’s ass.

        How do you handle a situation when two or three bully boys are in the same sandbox?

        If China follows Geopolitics 101 right now, Taiwan will soon be part of the People’s Republic. If it happens, the Americans better figure out how to build chip fabs fast.

        Biden’s mob has been intensely paving the way for a WEF takeover of America and Europe that he forgot the other two bully boys. Well, they are still here, with greater power than ever, getting ready to knock the US off the mountain.

        Biden’s mob was the absolute worst choice this country could’ve made. Just think, the most courageous member was a 80 year old woman. China is still laughing at the Mob.

        The voters have gotten what they deserve. America is Amerika after the two bills pending in the Senate today get passed. Manchin and Sinema have both sold their souls to the Deep State devil.

        • JohnAZ August 6, 2022 at 2:51 pm #

          BTW, chip fabs are very water hungry to keep clean rooms clean.

          So let’s build them in tada

          Phoenix, Chandler and Tempe, AZ. Who initiated the build fabs now movement?

          Mark Kelly, of course.

          Uh huh.

      A validly criticizes B.
      B points out that A is not perfect.
      B then seemingly claims to be above valid criticism because A is not perfect.

      And so it goes.

        Will this question be on the test?
