A Theory of the Game

“…a system that has been hollowed out by a string of cascading failures runs into one more crisis than it can tolerate, and implodes under the weight of its own absurdities. We are much closer to such scenes in North America and Western Europe right now than I think most people realize.” —John Michael Greer

     Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss was a bigger shock to the Washington DC deep state Blob than Donald Trump’s victory. But the dynamics of this trauma operated at many levels. At the most superficial level was the hysterical response of Democratic Party rank-and-file women who regarded Donald Trump as the most extreme and horrifying embodiment of an archetypal “bad daddy.” This was all sheer psychodrama of course, but women are engrossed with psychodrama — generating it and relishing it — which men often fail to appreciate.

     In cases of madness, there is often a dark, sordid secret behind the weird behavior that presents outwardly. In the group madness provoked by Hillary Clinton’s loss, the dirty secret was that she had actually bought the Democratic National Committee in 2016, meaning the machinery that runs the party. She used lavish contributions to the Clinton Foundation to accomplish that. And Hillary along with her foundation — and husband Bill, who had been reduced by late career misadventure to a kind of political fashion accessory — had committed any number of grave crimes against our country over the years, especially during her service as Barack Obama’s Secretary of State. Think: Skolkovo… Uranium One…. In 2016 Hillary used her ownership of the DNC to underhandedly de-rail the likely Democratic primary winner, Bernie Sanders, from being nominated.

     The initial act of madness by the “Resistance” on Mr. Trump’s inauguration day was the women’s march of pink pussy-hats, so called, a symbolic exhibition of fleering female genitalia in Mr. Trump’s face, so to speak, as an act of defiance against the new national daddy figure (and his millions of deplorable supporters watching the ceremonies on TV). This proved to be a mere overture to the more extreme sexual acting-out that evolved in the years to follow, overall a campaign to horrify people of normal appetites, beliefs, and moral codes, culminating in the drag queen story hours aimed at maximally inducing outrage among people organized as families.

     All of that psychodrama was hijacked, of course, by the serious neo-Marxists lurking among the Left, who used it in the usual neo-Marxian way: to overthrow everything in the established social order. And who were these? The circle around Barack Obama. And who was Barack Obama exactly? Good question. This mysterious figure who rose so swiftly from being, briefly, a mere state senator in Illinois, then to the US Senate — for only a few years, accomplishing next to nothing there — then to being nominated for president, and actually winning the 2008 election!

     Since we’re speaking in terms of psychodrama, Mr. Obama was liberalism’s wish-fulfillment: a half-century after the Civil Rights movement, America elects the first black president (half-black, anyway)! Liberalism needed, above all, a sense of moral superiority, to heal an imperfect world, to be ahead-of-the-curve in mankind’s implacable march of progress toward perfection, and especially to set an example for how to live for all those gun-loving, bible-thumping, meth-smoking, opiate-scarfing, racist, rapist flyover rubes who would dare to vote for such misogynistic vermin as the TV-clown Donald J. Trump.

     It was known, at the time, that Mr. Obama was a close associate (probably an apostle of) Chicagoan Bill Ayers, a former leader of the 1960s domestic terrorism group called The Weathermen. But by 2008, Mr. Ayers had managed to rehabilitate himself into professor of education at the U of Illinois Chicago campus, and hitched himself to Chicago school czar Arne Duncan, who would be appointed Secretary of Education by Mr. Obama, opening the doors for a neo-Marxist coup in the public schools — now on display in the battles raging over race-and-gender-Marxism installed in the Common Core State Standard Initiative.

     To what degree was Mr. Obama a tool of other forces lurking in the deep background of world politics, and what are these forces?  Many of the non-Left will say they are a loose consortium of corporate and financial actors desperate to keep in motion a set of rackets that magically stabilize business-as-usual, which asset-strips the remaining wealth of the middle classes and transfers it to the already super-wealthy.

       I’m not so sure about that, though the role of Davos remains persistently murky. Why, after all, would the super-rich invite as front-man a crypto-Marxist, as Mr. Obama is alleged to be, dedicated to destroying the existing social order that is the very ecosystem of the super-rich? Is it possible that Mr. Obama is fronting for nothing more than Mr. Obama now, desperately, as they say, weaponizing the “Joe Biden” government against its own people just to save Barack Obama from discovery, infamy, and loss of power?

      Mr. Trump proved to be easily controllable in office with the Blob and all its primary agencies marshalled against him, systematically disabled and humiliated by serial Blob hoaxes during his tenure, culminating in the bizarrely successful criminal plot to launch Covid-19 as an election-rigging device. Mr. Trump was thereby neatly disposed of in 2020. Of course, RussiaGate, the Mueller business, Impeachment No. 1, and Covid-19 were all essentially acts of treason and perfidy — that is, high crimes committed by the Democratic Party.

      “Joe Biden” was Mr. Obama’s device for wresting control of the DNC from Hillary Clinton’s gang. But now “Joe Biden” has criminal problems of his own that threaten to take down not only his own presidency, but of everything connected to it, namely his controller, Mr. Obama & Company, and the Democratic Liberal order itself driven insane by its own criminality. Meanwhile, his nemesis, Donald Trump has proven to be extraordinarily resilient in the remorseless war against him. And now that has culminated in the (so far) four cockamamie criminal cases cooked up by Obama / “Biden” as the final line of defense against the Golden Golem of Greatness — who obviously has no intention of surrendering.

       It looks like Mr. Obama is now in the process of being “outed” as something other than the suave performer he was for two terms in the White House. The Tucker Carlson interview with one Larry Sinclair, a gay cruiser and druggie who claims to have frolicked with Mr. Obama before he was a celebrity, was met with ominous silence in the mainstream media. They didn’t even dare denounce it to avoid drawing more attention to it. And the mysterious “drowning” of the Obama family’s chef, Tafari Campbell, paddleboarding at night in the shallow bay off the Obama estate on Martha’s Vineyard, remains woefully under-investigated. Will Barack Obama and “Joe Biden” end up sinking each other and the Democratic Party with them? And then, will Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. be called in to rescue the darn thing while driving all the demons out of it?

    Leave it to MSNBC to question why millionaire Vivek accepted a Soros affirmative action scholarship.

        • 100th Avatar September 8, 2023 at 11:19 am #

          Normally, he’s relatively composed, but that question had him rattled.

          Even though he was a millionaire, $50K was still a lot of money for him.

          He was reduced to saying “why wouldn’t I take it if they’re willing to grant a scholarship to a 24 year old?”

          His defense is even reminiscent of Trump: why wouldn’t I not pay taxes.

          Ethics of the ultra-wealthy

          • Beryl of Oyl September 8, 2023 at 11:57 am #

            Trump paid his taxes.

          • 100th Avatar September 8, 2023 at 12:03 pm #

            Trump also, lawfully, avoided many taxes.
            Who wouldn’t?

            My point is that Vivek is trying to echo Trump as he has from the first moment by asking who wouldn’t take $50K in scholarship money from Soros.

            But they are not equivalent. Not at all.

          • Beryl of Oyl September 8, 2023 at 12:22 pm #

            Yes taking something is not the same as not doing something you weren’t required to do.

            Vivek is crafty, mimicking Trump.

            People say if he likes Trump, why run against him?

            Because Vivek is smart- if Trump is somehow prevented from finishing the race, Vivek looks like the next best thing.

            If Trump wins, Vivek has positioned himself for the VP slot.

          • sonnyL September 10, 2023 at 3:39 pm #

            The ‘ethics’ of the ultra wealthy are what the ‘blob’ allows. Taxes may be the single most destructive aperture of Americas present state of implosion. So for any person of wealth to defer/manipulate ‘the game’, in my opinion, is a genius.

    • driguana September 8, 2023 at 12:40 pm #

      gaming the system
      if one plays by the rules of the game

      the chance for a win
      depends on a personal strategy
      determined by the boundaries
      of the possibilities allowed

      if one defies the rules
      the field of schemes requires
      another frame of mind and a better cheat sheet
      to spin out all the impossibilities

      another angle is not to win at all
      to ignore the crowd and set the options
      according to your own innate skills and desires
      that you apply for your own outcomes

      you can even take the ball and go home
      if you want

      reveling in the playing field full of holes
      and ruts and colored with the blood and guts
      of others who tried so hard
      when the whistle blew

      or you can simply sit on the warm bench
      and watch
      wondering exactly how many points
      of view
      it takes to win this game

      if winning is the point

      If you don’t take dirty money you are not in the club. Vivek made that money off of running a scam of a drug that had failed all tests until he rigged the trials using his mother. A worthy sleaze.

        Maybe….but compare him to the rest of the ignorant pandering assholes that want to be president.

      • FGB3 September 8, 2023 at 1:18 pm #

        They are afraid.

        As Col. Macgregor put it so succinctly last night in his YouTube “Delivering a truly severe blow to Russia”, the Democratic Party, as the weapon of Davos & Co., believes that it has set up the political system in the USA so that they will never have to relinquish power. Hence, they are going to make us serfs do what they want because we won’t have any choice.

        If these horrible sociopaths have any fear at all it is on the order of Sauron’s just before his final assault of Minas Tirith. As all powerful as he was in comparison with the West, he, like all evil, was insecure in that power.

        Also told him, he’ll never be replaced – his talent, his intellect, his ability to analyze and articulate our predicament in simple terms – after which he scolds me for any thought of hastening his demise.

      I have a long memory. Though I voted for him twice, I lost most of my enthusiasm for Obama when he was summoned to meet with the Rothschild and duly crossed the Atlantic to present himself. Apparently approval was required. It was obvious to me who was the supplicant and who held the power. I remember being surprised when it was presented as a news item and no questions were even asked, no explanations offered. I’ve occasionally wondered what passed between them during that meeting.

      • canuk September 9, 2023 at 11:40 am #

        That’s why Kings, Emerors, in general are better public stewards. The King wants to keep the nobles down and the hoi poloi up-our ‘elected officials’ report to the head Banker who doesn’t disclose his policies.

        Phillip III (early 1600’s) of Spain , attempting to conquer Europe’s he borrowed heavily from mostly Italian bankers in juros which were 60 years bond-the bankers said ‘No” Philip repudiated the debt , took all their asset.

        yes and he went bankrupt again, he was no Napoleobut in my books,
        that’s what a King does in my books.

          Rhetorical, but clearly it was to protect the unelectable (as president) Biden’s path to the White House. First as VP and then as President. So much easier to get in after having served as VP.
          Biden Inc. wasn’t going to let Sinclair jeopardize their ascendency.

        • abbybwood September 8, 2023 at 2:25 pm #

          When I heard Obama say regarding Joe Biden:

          “Give Joe the opportunity and he is sure to fuck things up.”, I had to wonder if it was possible that Obama didn’t want Biden as VP but was told Biden would be his VP?

          Kinda like JFK “choosing” LBJ as his running mate. He and Bobby hated LBJ. I understand “winning the south” but I always thought it curious that JFK couldn’t have chosen someone from the south he actually liked.

          Looks like what we are witnessing in our country’s history is just the tip of the iceberg TPTB are willing to show us.

          • Yirgach September 8, 2023 at 4:36 pm #

            Maybe the reason JFK “chose” LBJ was a compromise for some other favor he wanted. Like the Presidency?
            Recall that the 1960 election between Nixon and JFK was considered “closely contested” which was a code phrase for rigged. Both Texas and Illinois were involved. Hmm…

    • 100th Avatar September 8, 2023 at 11:36 am #

      A Bloomberg reporter allegedly told Sinclair that Five Star Limousine was owned, or did a lot of business with Tony Rezko.

      Who is Tony Rezko?

      A convicted Democrat fundraiser.
      Obama had interviewed for a position with his company, Rezmar, but was not hired… but was hired with a law firm that represented Rezmar.
      Later, Rezko was appointed to Obama’s Senate committee.

      Now, in this era of Epstein blackmail, what could Rezko have had on or known about Obama? Why would he have his limo send gay men his way? A favor, a reward, or insurance?

      • workingclasshero September 8, 2023 at 11:24 pm #

        I wouldn’t get too excited about Sinclair who has a rap sheet for fraud. The guy is a crook, and a conman and Tucker Carlson eats it up just like the rest of red America looking for any juicy good news. Unless someone else corroborates the story or Obama confesses, I wouldn’t believe the guy.

        The real red meat for the right ought to be the New Mexico Democratic governor illegally banning conceal carry handguns for 30 days.

            Yes, a lot of mysteries about that one. Like why professors and fellow students don’t remember his two years at Columbia.

            Obama was rumored to be working for the CIA in Pakistan countering the Soviet Afghan occupation at the time.

            How coincidental that the press trotted out the only people who remember him at Columbia – a few Pakistani nationals, his alleged roommates.

          Joan Rivers said it when some reporter caught her on the street. He asked her if she thought the country was ready for a gay president, and she told him we already had one in Obama and “everybody knows it.” Over her shoulder, as she left, she said, “Oh, and Michelle is a man.”

          I’ve seen pictures of a young Obama hanging out with a friend who was the very image of Michelle. I’ve seen this man, Michael’s, gym club membership card and the picture on it was Michelle’s though not in drag. I don’t think he even bothered to tuck. I’ve seen pictures of Michelle in tight dresses showing an obvious and fairly substantial bulge where men have bulges.There”s even a video song about it, called “Michelle Obama is a man,” by Okay Boomer. on YouTube. It’s still there, but only the vocals. The one I saw had pictures of Michelle with her dick showing though her clothes on many occasions.

        Texas is voting on a gold backed crypto currency; Tennessee and seven other states have made gold and silver legal tender for use and have started precious metals depositories. These are anti-US$ and pre CW2 and secession moves.

        Also, it is rumored (without my confirmation) that eight US states are consulting with BRICS+ regarding affiliation of some sort. Seems unbelievable but so does everything else going on in the world.

        Taxation without representation is, historically, a powerful motivator for big changes, and we definitely have that. And, yes, like good sheeple, we keep paying taxes to an illegitimate and criminal government.

        • mrs_saj September 8, 2023 at 10:57 am #

          neurodoc,

          Here’s a link that gives a break down of various state’s actions up to July 2019. Some of the states listed are failures, but it shows the direction of their legislature’s thinking.

          As always, I’ve replaced the “s” in https with an “x”.

        • JohnAZ September 8, 2023 at 11:09 am #

          Which eight states are consulting with BRICS++? It may be the only way of destroying the chokehold the Left has on the country.

          One comment. The West. How has Arizona turned blue? Same as elsewhere, right MQ?

          Carpet baggers! Politicians moving in from elsewhere. I saw it happen in Colorado in the 80s, with Pat Schroeder being the vanguard. Gary Hart was right in there too. Now look, Colorado is a super blue island.

          Folks, it is part of the plan the Left has used since the 60s. California, DC, New York, Chicago, the Pacific NW, Minnesota, all are sites of carpetbaggers destroying the goodness of the flyover states.

          It s up to the flyover states to fight back at the state level. All the resistance of Arizona, Texas, Florida, Utah, and the northern central states that loomed in 2020 and 2022 seems to have been watering down as the carpetbagging never seems to stop.

          Balkanization by chunks of the states is probably the only way to stop the collapse of the Constitution. A third party is the only savior at the national level, but the destruction of Trump is a signpost that any counter movement to the uniparty is a doomed adventure. What is left of the GOP is whining its way into obsolescence.

          I am watching the states to get the heck out of Dodge. As the July thermometer here nears 120 degrees and the low temperatures approach 100, it was 98 a couple of nights, we are discussing alternatives. I will not move to a tax nightmare like California or California. As Arizona, under the onslaught of Latino immigration grinds to the Left, its appeal is diminishing rapidly.

          • Cankerpuss September 8, 2023 at 1:31 pm #

            Arizona, Nevada, Colorado and New Mexico used to be solidly red states. Illegal immigration and California refugees have turned those states solidly blue or purple. Montana, Utah and Idaho are now being over run. Wyoming too.

          • Cankerpuss September 8, 2023 at 1:34 pm #

            Arizona shouldn’t be a state with a population of 8 million. Let’s be honest. Humans weren’t meant to live in a desert like that. Cities like Phoenix, Tucson, Las Vegas shouldn’t even exist. Were it not for the life blood of the Colorado river, provided by the mountains of Wyoming, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico, these cities and states would cease to exist in population.

          • draupnir September 8, 2023 at 2:19 pm #

            I am considering Kansas. It’s a red state and the rural portions are sparcely populated. The winters are milder than what I’m used to.

            AZ; I don’t know which states; Dr. Jim Willie, Ben Fulford, et al are talking about it without giving details. But, I’ll let you know if I can find out.
            What I do know is that the states that I noted above that started gold/silver depositories are the likely candidates if such a thing is even possible.

            A third party is the only savior at the national level, but the destruction of Trump is a signpost that any counter movement to the uniparty is a doomed adventure.

            Third parties generally flare out fast in the United States. Their biggest problem is the “winner take all” (the British call it “first past the post”) system our politics operate on. If a third party candidate finishes out of the money, you can tear up the betting slip. A partial success is no success.

            In the parliamentary system of most European states, a party gets a proportional reward that entitles it to a seat at the table, and often a role in a coalition government. That may seem more fair but doesn’t work well. Coalitions are unstable and tend not to last long. So you have situations like in Italy (to take an extreme example) where governments re-form kaleidoscopically.

            I don’t know what the answer is. History shows that good government is a puzzle no one has yet solved.

          Supposedly, Biden & Co. are considering forcing Texas to accept illegal migrants and not to ship them elsewhere. Should this occur, I’d say bye-bye Texas in the USA – 1836 redux, except in the opposite direction. Maybe the state should polish up and strengthen the Alamo (Alamo II).

        • Cankerpuss September 8, 2023 at 1:30 pm #

          Yep. Utah, Nevada, Wyoming, South Dakota and New Hampshire have permitted the “goldback” to be used as legal tender. It’s an interesting concept of using a vaccume to imbed tiny amounts of pulverized gold in between two polymer sheets. The notes actually have the gold imbedded inside of them.

          It’s a novel idea and the technology exists to do it. I wonder why more states haven’t looked into this. It will be a possible currency replacement once the American foney money has finally become worthless than the paper it’s printed on.

          Look into it. Goldbacks.

            A national ID, which will allow a few miscreants in DC to run just about anything in our lives.

            A national ID which will track everything you do economically to decide if that government is taxing you enough and to make sure you do not get more than you deserve.

      Alfred –

      “Yet we still pay our taxes?”

      That is possibly the greatest yet “undiscovered” power the American public still wields against a tyrannical, out-of-control govt. If a sizable number of the American public stood up & refused to pay taxes they could bring down the system. Think it as Cloward & Piven strategy turned inward; a sizable number would overwhelm the system. The IRS taking millions of people all @ once to tax court? Don’t think it could happen.

      Incidentally remember all the “not in my name” bromides from the left about funding the Iraq War? Why not pick up that canard & use it against the insanity of funding the Russo-Ukraine War?

      Force them to live up to their own rules.

        I want to add one more scenario to your list: “vaxxicide”. It’s a slow scenario, but over time, there is a certain demographic of people who will continue on with the vaxxines, annually. And the increase in the all cause death rate is going to catch up with these people. Add to that the demographic disparity in the vaxxine uptake for shots 1-5 and you will begin to see shifting populations of people based on political orientation. This will be a slow moving phenomenon, I believe, providing the media with cover to ignore it. But there may just be fewer blue voters way off in the future.

      BigJake,

      RFK Jr. still did something good. He stood up and researched and wrote and published The Real Anthony Fauci. This book gave millions of conservatives (and other people with their critical thinking still intact) a place to go to cement their vaccine hesitancy. And to the best of my knowledge, he has not been sued by Fauci. Fauci isn’t stupid and knows a libel lawsuit with all it’s attendant courtroom discovery requirements is the last thing he needs.

      RFK Jr. performed an invaluable public service and for that I thank him. And I have no obsession with the man. I’m a two time Trump voter, who will likely be voting for Trump again in 2024. I can tell you that there are views RFK Jr. holds that I completely disagree with, starting with man-made climate change. But I won’t dismiss the good works of someone just because they are a democrat. It’s unfortunately more complicated than that.

      • Beryl of Oyl September 8, 2023 at 12:31 pm #

        Yes it is more complicated. Trump’s a Republican, and I don’t hold that against him either.

        I have admired RFK Jr. for certain things, but he seems to be changing at an alarming rate, as of late.

        I don’t get where he’s coming from like I used to.

        • mrs_saj September 8, 2023 at 2:04 pm #

          Beryl,

          That is a completely fair point. I know you would not just label someone entirely evil or entirely good for the simplicity of it.

          And like my reply elsewhere, if RFK’s take on the border is as you mentioned, that is a real problem for me. The border is an issue I won’t compromise on. We can debate how many border patrol agents and how much fencing and how many drones and how many landmines, but that border needs to be closed everywhere except the US checkpoints where entry is supposed to be handled.

          I’ll play closer attention to what RFK is saying these days.

          • Jimpa September 9, 2023 at 11:04 am #

            The reason I like RFK is because he’s thoughtful. I don’t agree with him on some things but he’s spot on with big pharma and Ukraine. I’d rather have a thoughtful man in the White house I disagree with than an idiot tool like the last few.

      • TallTim September 9, 2023 at 1:13 pm #

        Basically ripped off the info that Dr. V.A. Shiva was saying years earlier. It is all about timing. If “Booby” had stood up from day one and said this is a scam, then that is one thing. But to slow walk the truth when it is obvious is a con game.

        It is exactly what CIA Tucker does too- bring out a limited-hangout truth way too late to do anything about it.

    Someone I love and respect saw Obama very clearly for what he is back around 2010. Everything he said about this evil POS of a human being turned out being true. I was never an Obama fan, but I saw him as essentially just another in a long line of empty Dem suits shamelessly grifting for his own account. Turns out my friend was right all along.

      Same here. I never voted for him, but we went down to the Mall when we were living in DC to see him sworn in. Always had a weird feeling that he was no good, but he was quite skilled in hiding his actions and intentions.

    • Islander September 8, 2023 at 10:36 am #

      Liz: Curious as to what your friend said.

      I was happy to see the Bushes debouche from the White House.

      But I knew that Inauguration Day was basically a one-night stand. He had already shown his colors pre-Inauguration, and things went downhill from there.

      IMO JHK brings new nuances in his account of the vicious power struggle that started in 2015, with Trump’s announcement that he would seek the presidency of the USA.

      • megabeth September 8, 2023 at 11:49 am #

        One nuance is that Obama tried like the dickens to persuade Biden to run, then. Biden was reluctant because of the death of his son, and also said he wasn’t up to battling the Clinton slime machine.

      lizharmon,

      I never saw that BO was gay. I missed it. I never even really noticed that he was effeminate. I loathed his policies. I loathed the free ride the media gave him on seemingly everything. I was relieved when his presidency concluded. His “you didn’t build that” speech addressing small business owners when he’s never made payroll even once in his life just sent me over the edge.

      But I never even considered him being gay. And I’ve kind of, not completely, stayed out of the fray regarding Michelle Obama being a closeted man or someone who has transitioned to female. I finally watched a video and thought, “oh boy, there IS something going on below her belt”. But I just don’t know for sure. It would mean those two kids aren’t the Obamas’.

      But there are many, many married adults who have lived publicly one way and in private, lived an entirely different way. And it is looking like BO is one of them. He’s just unusual because he is so high profile, has the support of the media to not cover this stuff, and his private circumstances also include his birth, his name, his upbringing, his educational background, etc. If he’s also a closeted gay with a transgender wife and someone else’s kids, that makes him entirely a work of fiction. A selection.

      • hmuller September 8, 2023 at 11:50 am #

        To me those two daughters don’t look anything like either parent. They are public relations props like that dog the Obama’s adopted. Can anyone produce a photo of Michelle pregnant?

        But that’s just a personal opinion not a scientific evaluation. I doubt they’ll allow an objective third party to conduct DNA tests.

        I don’t know what Michelle Obama is. But I remember Joan Rivers calling her a tranny and soon there after dying on the operating table during a very simple procedure. Proof? No. But cause for suspicion.

        • Beryl of Oyl September 8, 2023 at 12:39 pm #

          Getting pictures taken while pregnant is a fairly recent phenomenon, especially among black women, and especially among women who are already large and ungainly. No pix while pregnant doesn’t prove anything.

          • hmuller September 8, 2023 at 12:56 pm #

            No, it’s not proof. But a case can be built on many, many pieces of evidence. It does not hinge on one thing alone.

          • Islander September 8, 2023 at 3:07 pm #

            Especially since, at the time of the supposed pregnancies, Obama was a relative nobody and the press wouldn’t be following him and the baby bump.

            Still, the girls do not look like the Obamas.

            They REALLY don’t look like Michelle.

          • Islander September 8, 2023 at 3:10 pm #

            P.S.

            However, given all of the rumors, you would think that the clever Obamas and their PR machine would find a way to “naturally” insert some of their own private pregnancy photos (surely there are some of those!) into the public record.

            For instance, during a woman-to-woman Oprah interview or some such thing set up for the purpose. .

            “Getting pictures taken while pregnant is a fairly recent phenomenon, especially among black women…” ~ Beryl

            Beryl, it may have to do with promotion of the following:

            The Biden administration unilaterally increased food stamp benefits by 25 percent—at an estimated cost of $20 billion per year—without input from taxpayers or Congress. With the stroke of a pen, the Biden administration issued guidance to implement the largest permanent increase in food stamp program history.

            Because inflation. (Caused by the Biden regime)

            By a show of hands, has anyone here gotten a 25% raise? Anyone? Anyone?

            Don’t get me wrong, feeding hungry children is the most noble of causes – regardless of color.

            I’m just pissed that the money to fund my 25% raise went to the Ukraine instead.

          Her being trans would be epically more difficult to hide than merely being bi or gay as Barry Obama is alleged to be.

          • Beryl of Oyl September 8, 2023 at 12:41 pm #

            No, they are basing it on a quip by Joan Rivers. Plus a lot of obviously doctored photos.

          • Paula D September 8, 2023 at 1:22 pm #

            Michelle towers over Barack, although Barack is a tall man. He also has male features.

            I saw a video in which he was adjusting his balls. It wasn’t a doctored photo, it was a video.

            The girls look just like those family friends, not the Obamas.

            What evidence do you want? If you’re waiting for a NY Times expose, you’ll be waiting a long time.

            Which is my point about the media. They can cover up anything, and they can invent total bullshit out of nothing, and make people believe it.

            This does not matter to me but keep in mind the media still discusses russiagate in the context of Trump being the villain of the whole affair. Despite there being a picture of the check sent to C. Steele and emails asking him to jazz things up a notch. So yes I do think they could make the whole thing up and just keep repeating the lie over and over again. I don’t think it’s true but if O is a gay dude married to a trans person with imported children it is still the least disturbing thing about him.

            In the USA I think it is. AFAIK citizenship derives from being born in the territory of the USA.

            There is a difference between being a citizen and being born in the US, you are right there. People born in other countries from Americans are also American citizens, as are immigrants who are naturalized.

            But to be eligible to run for president, you have to be born in the USA.
            Being a citizen is not enough.

    A girl at work who’s a good deal to the left of me said of Obama in 2008, “He’s evil. I can’t put my finger on why, but he’s got an aura of evil surrounding him.” That astounded me because, while there was no way in Hell that I’d vote for a disciple of Frank Marshall Davis and there was a menacing nature in the way Obama speaks, I didn’t see him as a Mephistophelean figure. I have to say now, she was right. The nebulous “hope and change” he wrought has destroyed racial comity, while shoving the Democrats far, far to the left. Crime is excused, government spending is good, and anyone who’s not a lefty holding a PhD is called a moron — especially if they know women and men are different, and punishing law-abiding people for the actions of criminals is insane.

      HEAR HEAR!! I could not agree more with your entire comment, my friend!! Do you know, I was talking with some close friends of mine down at the, Yaak River Mercantile & Tavern, about the rest of America. And how normal, Life is for us.

      Here, in the very very NW part of Montana. 5 miles from the Canadian border. And hundreds of miles from the insanity of the West Coast. That we never see. And that’s because hardly any of them ever come here.

      And that’s because we have absolutely no fast food, no theme type nation-wide restaurants. Like Cracker Barrel, or, no Chick-fil-A no Bojangles chicken and biscuits. No, HOME DEPOT‘s no Lowe’s hardware.

      The hardware store we do have is family owned like everything else is family-owned. And our local banker you can call at the house about a loan the way it used to be in the vast majority of white America. That the Democratic Party has all but destroyed this nation and the race that built this country. The white race.

      My race. Chances are, your race. And our race don’t go around, rubbing it in peoples faces like they’re disgusting, piece of lawless law-breaking black race does.

      But I digressed. And I will not apologize for my rant. No hotels whatsoever, nor any motels. To come here, you pretty much have to know somebody.

      Because in a nutshell, life is normal here. Nothing but white people thank God and we have no crime to speak of. That’s the reason we don’t have a police officer ???? in-site. It absolutely pisses me off beyond a shadow of a doubt when I see what is happening to the rest of the country.

      And it’s all because of the Democrat party if there was ever a party that needs to be eradicated, one way or another, it is without a doubt, the most evil, and I do mean it is evil!!!!!

      It is full of Satan and he has his hands firmly on the throttle of the Democrat party, and he’s enjoying it. Every Democrat daughter, he can turn into a flaming Dyke. He loves it every white Democrat son he can turn into a flaming queer.

      He loves everyone that he can create to be the most, Hideous. Heinous Evil, Drag Queen, To twist The minds of precious little children, he loves it.

      And I will close with this. I ask anybody to explain this to me. Why in the name of God would anybody, Absolutely anybody want to do this to children???

      What is the sick reasoning behind this and look how our nation has changed just in the short time that this piece of shit called Joe Biden that was illegally elected!!!!!!!!

        Every young politician shows up in DC with $100,000 net worth and, a couple/three years later they’re tipping the scales at $5,000,000 and $10,000,000. And nobody ever asks How?

        Remember that good-looking young man – freshman Congressman a few years ago? He was explaining how the old creeps in DC invited him to a sex orgy. He was memory-holed shortly thereafter.

    Hillary’s loss: the fate that launched a thousand trips.

    No change back to normal behavior and sane living will be possible until after the dollar dies. The death of the dollar will result in loss of access to both food and fuel in the US. The resulting violence and domestic chaos from that will bring about the end of the ability of the US to project military power anywhere outside of US borders. We’ll be completely broke, nobody will exchange anything for worthless dollars, and the glue holding the US together will dissolve. There will no longer be any point to having a USA in the first place. Dimitri Orlov just wrote about why Russia is gonna whup our damn asses!

    “Since that time, the collective West did a number of things to help Russia and to hurt itself. Anti-Russian sanctions, for instance, achieved a great many things:

    • they flushed out much of Russia’s “fifth column” and caused much of it to leave the country

    • they motivated numerous Western companies to stop doing business in Russia, selling off their shares to Russian corporations at fire sale prices

    • the denial of access to the SWIFT banking network and speculative attacks on Russia’s currency isolated it from the West financially and stopped the expatriation of profits and various forms of capital flight, beating down inflation in most sectors (passenger vehicles are an exception)

    • and the great dislocations the sanctions, together with Biden blowing up Nord Stream pipeline, have caused to the global energy markets, have driven up Russia’s export revenues to quite an embarrassing extent.

    Thus, Russia is now growing economically, has plenty of money to invest in infrastructure such as roads and bridges (including new high speed rail lines), schools, kindergartens and hospitals, and so on, while the collective West, as a result of its self-inflicted damage, is sinking ever deeper into recession/depression and, what is worse, is being forced to deindustrialize by the much higher costs of energy.”

      Note my comment about the states starting gold/silver depositories. They’re getting ready for the collapse of the US$ from rejection by 80% of the rest of the planet (now controlled by BRICS+). And, you’re 100% correct; when the US$ collapses and prices rise by a factor of 7 (which just happens to be the $ purchasing power level correlated to parity with the yuan), the proverbial shit will hit the fan. Think Secession and CW2.

      • D from OR September 8, 2023 at 11:22 am #

        Please explain how BRICs is now controlling the planet?

        No common currency. No system of asset valuation to back a currency.

        Nascent system of trade. Routes from Africa and South America to the North aren’t profitable due to the current limitation of transportation and ports.

        China and India still have stuff to work out (see the weather manipulation in the Himalayas for more info) and why Xi isn’t going to the G20 there. North Africa is a hot mess for awhile until they can rid themselves of the French.

        So many reasons why your assertion isn’t valid.

        • Paula D September 8, 2023 at 12:10 pm #

          Agree. BRICS is an alternative system of trade set up to bypass the US using its economic power to screw over countries, as Dimitri Orlov points out.

          They aren’t about controlling the world, they are about surviving the collapse.

            It was five times worse than I said, although I thought I was showing the complete evil ensconced in our rulers and their agendas.

            Half a million dead Iraqi children was worth it to them. Worth what? What did they gain?
            Eventually, they went in and killed a couple of million more, to gain more control over the oil and put some military bases in the region.

            Well worth it, according to the Clintons, the Bushes, the Obamas, the Bidens, etc.

        • Paula D September 8, 2023 at 12:14 pm #

          The US uses sanctions to control other countries’ behavior, and they got away with it for a long time, causing untold misery in the targeted countries.
          (Do you think the death of 100,000 children is worth it?
          Yes, yes, we do.)

          But when they openly started flat-out stealing the assets held by other countries, any sane leader would look around for an alternative.

          It isn’t a play for power, it’s a move to safe and legal transactions.

          I think it’s a process. All of the countries involved still have stuff to work out. But they are working on it, each in its own time frame. I do not think it’s realistic to expect the US$ will always be the worlds reserve currency. That has never held before, other currencies have come and gone as the reserve currency. And the world doesn’t get a public service announcement about it. Things evolve over time. Countries react.

          As a retired banker whose English-language essays I edit pointed out, from the time the “European Community” was proposed until the advent of the Euro, it took 45 years.

          Nevertheless, the momentum is building. And the strong-arming by Uncle is actually expediting the process.

          Did you see the lumpy, sullen face of that Gina Raimondo when she did the number on Beijing? Looked like a very unappealing Ma Barker. I’ve seen how these [fellow] American envoys operate in weak nations – thinking specifically of a “mission” I witnessed in the Philippines. Like mafia lieutenants, and they don’t give a FF who knows it.

      See the Euro goes first. They can’t parry with the Fed rate raises. Anyone with a brain holding excess Euros are currently going into dollars to get that Fed rate. Why would they not?

      Do you understand?

      That’s the other point of Powell raising the rates —> draw dollars back to the U.S.

      Actually anyone with some money to invest is converting to dollars. My credit union is back to offering CDs with a 6% return at 12 months.

            The interest rates were actually ridiculously high in the 80s.

            That has a lot to do with how they forced the last family farmers out of business.

            They also screwed over multiple third world countries during the 80s, allowing them to get resources very cheaply.

            It was the 90s when interest rates were dropped.

          The succession movement is largely in name because in order to become a reality it needs Congressional approval. Idaho would need to be okay with it as well.

    No doubt:

    -Obama chose Chicago as home to get street cred, make inroads with the black community, and enter the criminal democratic party syndicate of Illinois

    -Obama was plucked from obscurity

    -Obama was hand selected to be the Dem’s candidate

    -Biden was chosen to share the ticket as A) it presented an old white guy as an overseer to an unsure white electorate, B) it provided an unelectable (as president) Biden with an easy entry into the white house.

    -The limo driver purportedly hired by Sinclair was owned or did business with a prominant Chicagoan syndicate.

    -Beau Biden issued an arrest warrant for Sinclair on petty charges

    -A gay choir master from Obama’s reverand Wright’s church had similar claims of liasons and was found murdered.

    Doubts:

    -Why would a succesful highly educated Obama resort to smoking crack and blind dates referred to him by a limo company?

    – The whitehouse.gov website not only acknowledged Sinclair’s allegations they purportedly had him polygraphed.

        He didn’t just go through any college. He went through the elite minting factory known as Harvard. It is one of the few “schools” our electe..er, appointed masters are permitted to attend.

        They have not released his transcripts or records, of course, but it’s not exactly easy to pretend to have been editor of the Harvard Law Review.

        I believe his records are being hidden beacsue it is rumored that he attended based on “foreign” student grant. Either he lied to get the grant or lied about being born in Hawaii.

        • Islander September 8, 2023 at 12:21 pm #

          He did not attend Harvard College.

          He attended Podunk U–er, Occidental College.
          Then he transferred to Columbia and got a BA.

          How he got into Harvard Law and became the editor of the Law Review is a mystery (but one that is probably easily solved).

          After that he did not distinguish himself professionally in any way. He did not AFAIK do any legal work as a so-called community organizer. Yet dealing with various legal issues is one of the most important aspects of community work, in my experience.

          Per a Google search:
          “But if you ask Obama’s fellow organizers what his most significant accomplishments were, they point to two ventures: the expansion of a city summer-job program for South Side teenagers and the removal of asbestos from one of the area’s oldest housing projects. Those, they say, were his biggest victories.”

          Wow, I am impressed (sn/). This is stuff anyone can do. No law degree needed.

          How the hell did he end up teaching constitutional law (maybe there was a mirror in the back of the lecture hall)?

            That being said, nobody is measuring the “quality” of education, (although to totally downplay the level of education at Harvard is rather absurd) as this is not the point. Have you no concept of fellowship or initiation?

            Think of the Kennedy School as a finishing school for aspirational bureaucrats.

            That is why for some reason he was allowed into the Law School. He did not attend the Kennedy School. The latter is far more political. Many heads of state attend these courses. It is more about money and politics

            Not so much the Law School. Harvard Law is extremely competitive. Hence my surprise at how he got in. Because he is just not that smart and his academic record is murky.

        I was never impressed at all by any of Obama’s speeches. They all seemed to be delivered with no passion or interest – as if by memory, and the intonations of his voice was always the same, always the same repetitive style of speaking and the same rythm.

        I’ve witnessed spell binding black preachers would could combine music, poetry, and spoken voice into a combination that would give you goosebumps. Call and response routines where you have a guy both preaching and singing and at the same time going back and forth with some gospel Diva would could really belt it out. You get lost just in the power and emotion in the speaker, he or she starts hitting you below the belt where you are defenseless. Obama has no such powers of oratory. He makes me yawn, I don’t care to be adressed as “folks”.

        Obama could never deliver that type of leadership or performance in my opinion, he appears as a wooden windup toy. Compare Obama and Dr. King for example – they are nowhere in the same league. Anyone going to see an Obama or Hillary speech has to have a high tolerance for boredom and killing time. ,

        • Beryl of Oyl September 8, 2023 at 12:50 pm #

          That’s because Obama is far away from the typical black American history and culture.

          Whatever anyone thought of MLK, that I Have A Dream speech was some powerful oratory.

          Agree, Woodchuck. The media insists that Americans were so spell-bound by a 2004 speech Obama gave (I never saw it), that they clamored for him to be president, so the DNC obliged the public.

          What total bullshit!

          He speaks like William Shatner. He has no oratorical ability.

          The whole damn thing is yet another media narrative, repeated so often that most people channel it as the Truth, even though they should be able to judge for themselves.

          • Islander September 8, 2023 at 5:40 pm #

            I did see the speech (on TV).

            It was very surprsing to see such an attractive and new face walk to the podium.

            That was the year that protesters were “penned” at the Convention Center. I think they were protesting the Iraq War. It was a very controlled event.

            I later copyedited a book about just one aspect of Obama’s political career. It was clear that he had been “chosen” and had financial backing very early on. For instance, to buy a lot of political Obama merch and get the media on board for his very earliest rallies and get people there to be video’d for TV, etc. All of this costs money (and influence).

            Furthermore, regarding the 2004 keynote speech, there was intense intraparty factional competition and infighting and jockeying regarding who would get that political plum.

            The sharp-elbowed Obama team won that match. They knew it was the launch for the national rollout of The Obama Show.

Here’s something somebody copied off a tv set and posted on you tube. It’s Dr. Delano Ellis describing to an audience how as a young teenager he converted one Sunday from Islam to being an evangelical Christian. Dr. Ellis grew up in the Philadephia hood and ended up getting a doctorate in theology from some universities in England. He made extra money in England working as a sort of stand-in or substitute for Anglican priests. Somehow there was a shortage of people qualified or able to conduct Episcopal worship services, and he was so good at that craft that they hired him to do this as a sideline job. It seems he’d received his advanced degrees at Episcopal universities and he had networked himself in there very well. But here he tells the story about how it all began for him:

      Obama was a woke n****r, period. He was owned by his Chicago roots. Like Trump, he thought he would change DC, unlike Trump he fit in well with the upsurge in “Leftism”. He did not get all he wanted, but he changed the national direction.

      To a nation of more nationalism at the time, he accelerated the process of dissolution we are witnessing now.

        I understand that, but there is something recklessly risky about an ambitious person having gay sex with drug addict one-night-stands, no?

        Of course seeking these flings with visitors or itinerant people in Chicago seems an easier way to maintain a secret, but risky nonetheless.

        • Paula D September 8, 2023 at 12:21 pm #

          It’s not risky at all if the Blob covers for you, as we can see plainly.

          Are you going to ignore the last 20 ;years of the media greasing the skids for Obama, in order to pretend that there is some sort of accountability for actions in this country, if you are anointed?

          There are none so blind as those who refuse to see.

            That, and according to Sinclair himself, Obama received oral sex from him. If only he had a blue shirt.

            Sinclair also said that the limo drivers were kind of like the go-betweens in this situ.

            They were probably very good at sizing up visitors. The lounge sounds as though it was quite sedate.

            The limo driver was, literally, on board with the tryst. So, probably not that dangerous.

          Risky? Sounds almost like risqe. The risk is part of the thrill for roues.

          Merriam-Webster

          February 4, 2020 – Roué means “broken on the wheel” in French and ultimately derives from Latin rota, meaning “wheel.” Since the wheel being referred to was an instrument of punishment, the French were implying that such dissolute beings deserved this punishment. By the end of the 18th century, English-speakers added roué to its list of synonyms for a rake, libertine, debaucher, lecher, etc.

          I agree with you (and your mortal risk) comment below. But people in desperate need (of anything) skew their perceptions of risk. And Paula D is right that BO has the media in his corner to ignore and cover for him if need be.

          Who was that toe tapping married conservative congressman who would visit truck stops or some such? Isn’t a wide stance and toe tapping in the men’s bathroom code for “I’m looking for a five minute date”?

          Think about the risky conversations people have all the time to facilitate their risky behavior; starting an affair, buying drugs, hiring hookers, finding child pornography….

          To some gay men, the danger and risk is a big part of the thrill. They’ll go looking for sex in dangerous places and among dangerous people. They’ll wander around on foot places like the Quindaro, in Kansas City, Kansas, in the middle of the night–or through black neighborhoods in Kansas City, Missouri.

          In certain city parks in Kansas City, there are designated “gay bathrooms” out in the woods. (There’s one at Liberty Memorial.) There are no lights anywhere around. Gay men gather there in the pitch darkness, where they can’t even see whom they’re having sex with. It’s considered dangerous to frequent such places. They do it for the thrill; danger gives an edge to the whole undertaking. There seems to be an urge, too, to take up with dangerous people and to seek out danger and degradation.

          These same guys could be just as successful by going to one of any number of gay bars, where picking someone up is probably as safe as it gets. (Everyone knows everyone else in the gay community.)

            Anthea – the “looking to be naughty with strangers in the dark” is not a new thing, as I learned in 1958, after completing a summer school course on Wolfgangsee, not far from Salzburg:

            [Wiki]: “The Englischer Garten (English Garden) is a large public park in the centre of Munich, Bavaria, stretching from the city centre to the northeastern city limits. It was created in 1789 by Sir Benjamin Thompson (1753-1814), later Count Rumford ( Reichsgraf von Rumford ), for Prince Charles Theodore, Elector of Bavaria.”

            Notorious cruising spot back then. It came to mind when you mentioned the Kansas City “nature walks”.

    ” It looks like Mr. Obama is now in the process of being “outed” as something other than the suave performer he was for two terms in the White House. The Tucker Carlson interview with one Larry Sinclair, a gay cruiser and druggie who claims to have frolicked with Mr. Obama before he was a celebrity, was met with ominous silence in the mainstream media. They didn’t even dare denounce it to avoid drawing more attention to it. And the mysterious “drowning” of the Obama family’s chef, Tafari Campbell, paddleboarding at night in the shallow bay off the Obama estate on Martha’s Vineyard, remains woefully under-investigated. Will Barack Obama and “Joe Biden” end up sinking each other and the Democratic Party with them? And then, Will Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. be called in to rescue the darn thing while driving all the demons out of it?”

    Well, your messaging sure is consistent.

    But so is mine.

    There is NO blob.

    There is only one vast criminal syndicate that has this joint by the collective BALZ.

    When you follow the MONEEE, IF you follow the MONEEE, you can quickly (5 seconds or less) figure out that a good STARTING point to identify these THUGS is the membership list of the WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM. OF course, all those BILLIONAIRES exist at the PLEASURE of the VERY FEW FAMILIES OF TRILLIONAIRS/QUADTRILLIONAIRES who have been pulling the MARIONETTE strings for a LONG LONG TIME.

    Suffice it to say that YOUR “analysis” is quite MYOPIC in scale and size, and if that’s the intent, then you are just another “player” in the MEME game. And NO, I don’t give a damn who stuffs your pockets to put out your weekly shuck and jive.

    No goy, you’re NEVER gonna get the truth served up to on a silver platter. More likely, when you finally get it, it’ll be served with a BULLET to YOUR HEAD.

    Never trust someone who identifies as a Democrat to save American from anything imho. That includes RFKJr. He’s probably just like Trump 1.0 and doesn’t for a second appreciate the depths of depravity his party has sunk to.

    • Beryl of Oyl September 8, 2023 at 10:45 am #

      He’s ignoring what is happening to President Trump in the courts and gave a moving testimonial and character reference to the figurehead who is having a political rival prosecuted.

      He also made up an excuse for Joe allowing the border situation, saying that Joe was being a humanitarian and wanting to keep kids out of cages.

      Is he smoking something?

      • neurodoc September 8, 2023 at 11:05 am #

        I thought RFKjr was a somewhat interesting candidate (due to his attack on the vaxx) until I heard him attack CO2 as a poison and responsible for ‘climate change.’ That tells me he’s just another well schooled but uneducated fuck who doesn’t even understand the high school level science of the CO2/Oxygen cycle that enables life on the planet. Stupid is not redeemable. Neither is being ignorant of basic science!!

          I heard RFK Jr say corporate oligarchs are trying to use the climate issue to exert totalitarian control over the planet and I heard him say there is a “carbon crisis” whatever that means.

          I have not heard him say CO2 is a poison and it would certainly change my opinion of the man if I found reliable evidence he said that.

          I’m not disputing what you said but try as I may, I can’t find evidence of him saying that. Can you point me in the direction of that evidence?

            And in the middle of the BRICS conference, to boot.

            Right. Mr. Cautious and Legalistic Diplomat decided to give a propaganda bonanza to the west, just as multiple countries were meeting trying to escape the western tendrils.

          Per the US Dept of Energy, the amount of CO2 in the earth’s atmosphere ranges from .03% to .04% of the total amount of gases. Nitrogen comes in as the highest at about 78% followed by oxygen at 20.9%. Argon gases account for .9% and a category of “other” is at .17%. In every exhaled human breath, CO2 accounts for a range between 4 to 4.4%. Oxygen is reduced to 16% and the other constituent parts while nitrogen remains at 78%. Putting it another way, with every exhaled breath, we’re contributing 100 to 110 times the amount of atmospheric CO2 that we take in.

          For those of the technocratic persuasion – I’m thinking here of fiends like Yuval Harari – there are two possible solutions available: either cull the human herd by 99% to achieve an atmospheric balance. Or rely on the same “science” that has allowed (and encouraged) men to become menstruating, birthing people, to find a way to change our pulmonary dynamics, perhaps with the aid of an mRNA vaccine with the requisite periodic boosters. That’ll do it, right?

      • mrs_saj September 8, 2023 at 11:44 am #

        Beryl,

        I haven’t seen RFK’s comments excusing the open border. As I noted higher up in the thread, I will always be grateful he wrote “The Real Anthony Fauci”, but if he’s excusing the border shit-show, that’s a deal killer for me, politically.

        This country cannot be saved without closing the border. Period. There’s other stuff that has to happen too. But the boat sinks if the hole isn’t plugged.

        • Paula D September 8, 2023 at 12:27 pm #

          I’m not voting for anyone, but I did see RFK, Jr. talk about the border, and he made it very clear that it should be closed.

          Yeah, he went on about the “humanitarian crisis”, but it was to make the case for closing the border, not leaving it open.

          I just want to set the record straight. It pisses me off when people misrepresent very clear statements.

          It pissed me off equally when the media claimed that Trump said to drink bleach, or that he gave a secret message to the Proud Boys.

          No, that did not happen, and neither did RFK say that the border should stay open.

          • Beryl of Oyl September 8, 2023 at 1:13 pm #

            Yes he did say the border should be closed. Who said he didn’t?

            He said a lot more than that, is the problem.

            There are a couple of bald-faced lies right here:

            “President Biden justified his open borders policy as a humanitarian response to the appalling media revelations that the Trump-era Border Patrol had 2,600 “children in cages.”

    “To what degree was Mr. Obama a tool of other forces lurking in the deep background of world politics, and what are these forces? Many of the non-Left will say they are a loose consortium of corporate and financial actors desperate to keep in motion a set of rackets that magically stabilize business-as-usual, which asset-strips the remaining wealth of the middle classes and transfers it to the already super-wealthy.”

    I believe Glenn Greenwald described it best on the Patrick bet David podcast: multiple ultra-wealthy individuals, investment/wealth funds, and elite corporate groups using politicians, the 4th branch of entrenched bureaucracy, and the corporate media to ensure their status at the top.

    Has anyone seen Schwab’s latest? He believes the world must be ruled by technological/discipline experts rather than politicians.

      The difference is that every action of Donald Trump has been and continues to be examined under a microscope.

    One quibble- I can’t agree that Hillary bought the DNC.

    She was providing the funding, that’s a fact.

    But she didn’t own what she “bought”.

    I think she was paying for the privilege of being allowed to run for Obama’s third term.

    Notice she was never allowed to clean house- she couldn’t get rid of Obama holdovers such as Donna Brazille.

    Robbie Mook as campaign manager? Hillary is not stupid, and her husband certainly knows how to campaign. We are suppose to believe they hired that kid?

    Also remember that Obama kept threatening to replace her with Joe Biden, and she admits she called BO and apologized when she realized she had lost to Trump.

    • Islander September 8, 2023 at 11:05 am #

      Good points.

      Re “I think she was paying for the privilege of being allowed to run for Obama’s third term.”

      Possible.

      Do you think she “paid” to get ahead of Biden in line?

      Other than Sanders I can’t think of any other Dem candidates at that time.

      She chose a nonentity as a running mate. Why did she do that?

      • Beryl of Oyl September 8, 2023 at 11:48 am #

        You’re right they didn’t have anybody else, but when you think about it, they didn’t have anybody else when Hillary ran the first time, so they elevated some unknown quantity and put him in front of her.

        I don’t think she chose Kreepy Klown. She couldn’t have. She isn’t that stupid.

        People will say it’s because she needed his state, what was it VA? but it doesn’t actually work that way.

        BTW Bobby Jr. found out the Democrats rig the primaries. I wonder how long he’s known this:

      Apparently, Hillary was quoted as saying, “They Were NEVER Going to Let Me Be President.”

      I have often wondered to which “They” she was referring. The Vast Rightwing Conspiracy? The US Military? Or somebody else?

      Let’s face it, despite all the press, contacts, and celebrity status, the Clinton’s have baggage. Heavy freaking baggage.

      Maybe some other group of unnamed power players decided it was no longer Her Turn and stepped over Hillary despite the Clinton’s most ardent attempt to earn their way back into the White House through that tawdry foundation.

      Speaking of which, they are cranking up the Clinton graft machine again to position themselves and their ghastly spawn for the salad days ahead.

    “When you follow the MONEEE, IF you follow the MONEEE, you can quickly (5 seconds or less) figure out that a good STARTING point to identify these THUGS ”

    Our MONEEE only has value and power because of the amount of faith in the US and also with US military force backing it up. Faith keeps the US dollar afloat. There are no physical resources such as gold, manufactured goods, or petroleum any more backing up that dollar. Once everybody figures that out, and the MONEEE has no more value, we’ll break up into smaller and very frugal nations that mind their own business and live on what they have – not on what they can borrow or steal overseas.

    If we are really collectively as bad-ass and mean as we think we are, we’ll deal with these THUGS on our own. Whipping posts and gibbets will return to small towns and cities everywhere. People won’t mess with us because we won’t have much of anything to steal and we’ll deal with troublemakes in such extremely brutal and swift ways that they’ll pack up and move someplace else. How about that for a prediction of the future? .

    • Woodchuck September 8, 2023 at 11:10 am #

      If I remember correctly, and I may be wrong, way way back in the 1800’s my town in its frontier days had a gibbet included as part of the features of the local jail. If you had the misfortune to experience a “hanging’ judge” in charge of your trial, your punishment could come very quickly in a matter of days instead of taking many years to occur. And the means to do it was right out there in the back yard of the jail. Inmates could see the damn thing from a cell window.

      I’ve a feeling that’s how justice will occur in a soon-to-be poor and low tech USA. The future America will be too broke to spend up to 40 thousand dollars a year to house each prisoner in climate controlled and well-fed comfort. Instead justice will be very inexpensive and by necessity – very brutal! Including getting yourself whipped in public by a dude wearing a black bag on his head. After you get all the skin shredded off your back, they let you go. That costs the public almost nothing. Or if feminism is still ongoing by then – how about being whipped badly in public by a big woman wearing a garter belt, panties, black bra, and black hood on her head? Now a spectacle like this would be something to get Jarek’s juices really running!

      ‘Once everybody figures that out…’

      The BRICS+ nations HAVE figured that out; that’s why the US$ is being rejected all over the world and we are starting to get shortages therefrom. I had a meeting last week with a group of medical supply execs. They all told me that storage warehouses for medical equipment and pharmaceuticals are being cleaned out due to the lack of incoming product (from guess where; China).

      • D from OR September 8, 2023 at 11:32 am #

        So all over the world people are rejecting dollars and your proof is an empty warehouse of medical equipment?

        So what are people using if not dollars? What’s the competing currency.

        If offered a choice of $100 or €100 what would be the sound choice (not the political one)?

        Politics is one thing and finance is another.

        • neurodoc September 8, 2023 at 11:39 am #

          My proof? Multiple reports in the financial press (paid for info, not the free propaganda bullshit that peasants read).

          • neurodoc September 8, 2023 at 11:42 am #

            Also, understand that $100 does not equal C100; the ratio is 7 dollars to one yuan. The equation should be $100 = C700. That’s the whole issue about the Chinese and BRICS+ demand that the US$ be at parity with the Yuan. Your equation assumes parity has already been negotiated.

          • D from OR September 8, 2023 at 6:22 pm #

            Really? What site? What article?

            And I’m not talking about exchange rates. I’m talking value. Something you want to hold and keep. An asset.

            Understand the difference?

            Your weak “proof” means nothing and if anything is about supply chain not finance.

            Until there is a BRICS currency (if ever) the Chinese still love them some Treasury bills and dollars. Explain why.

        • Woodchuck September 8, 2023 at 11:56 am #

          Other choices have arrived and are being used. There are other ways to conduct business and not be using either dollars or euros.

          I used to bum around a bit in Europe during my hippie days in the early to mid 70’s. I was always spending a bit of time waiting in line in currency exchanges, dragging my heavy backpack along with me but on the floor instead of on my back. I had German marks or US dollars in my pocket, and I’d be trading – say for liras so I could go check out Rome and Venice for a few days. I always had my passport very close and protected because when I crossed borders men in uniforms would be there and they’d ask for that passport. If I lost it or it got stolen, I’d have to immediately go to a US embassy and then prove to them I was who I claimed to be, and they’d check me out and get me another one. That’s how it used to be before there was an EU.

          After the EU and NATO have smashed themselves to pieces on all the rocks and cliffs in Ukraine, those days of passports and currency exchanges in Europe will return. Europe will be poor and low tech just as we will be in America. If and when the USA breaks up into smaller countries, passports and identification papers will be required to travel from one state to another. Let’s say that the independent nation of Texas decides it wants to restrict and control how many of the lefty nut and fruit people from California it will allow to become citizens. So you can visit Texas but you can’t move there unless Texas tells you personally that you can. They’ll give you a visa to visit and that’s all. Texas may not want California money either, and tell Ca to go change it first into marks, pesos, moolas, whatever before any trade can happen. The USA breaks up into smaller countries and Europe returns to the 1970’s. That’s called “decentralization”.

        AZ, you’re correct. CW2 will definitely be a bloodbath. Mainly because a given state has both red and blue areas, one being dominant. For ex., look at Virgina: the north and eastern sectors are urban and very blue. The central and Southwest sectors are suburban and rural, and very RED. Texas has very blue Austin and most of the rest of the state is RED. There will be a lot to work out and violence and movement between and among groups of people everywhere.

    On an increasingly rare optimistic day I can imagine the Bidens going down, though Senile Joe will never under any circumstance spend a day behind bars because he’s so old and that would be “cruel.” (nevermind the cruelty he has inflicted on thousands of citizens)

    I am unable to imagine the falling dominoes also bringing down Obama, because that would be “racist” – the Swiss Army Knife of accusations for liberals these days.

    Least of all can I imagine the DNC, even in extremis, embracing RFK Jr. They are, after all, owned by Big Pharma, and their primary agenda is perpetual war, and Kennedy stands against both.

    BTW, I can’t remember the source, but I heard someone recently report that since leaving the Oval Office in glory Obama has joked with intimates about how he “didn’t stand for anything at all” and that his campaign was simply a ”Rorschach test” for the voters.

    The “pussy hat” marches were planned as a women’s victory march for the election of the first woman president.

    I remember, growing up, I would hear over and over that in America any boy could grow up to be president.

    After Obama’s election, the MSM kept referring to the old saying that any child could grow up to be president in America, but there was no such saying, it was any BOY.

      One of my daughters once told me she wanted to be the first woman president, and I told her, “Honey, you’re nowhere near low-down enough for that line of work.” I think she must have been about eleven at the time, so she had no idea what I was talking about.

      While I think the pink pussy-hat thing was particularly disgusting–a brigade made up almost entirely of female government employees in the DC area–you don’t have to look far to see men indulging in similar herd behaviors, with the accompanying psychodrama. Much of it is related to sports ball of some kind, where the team’s T-shirt or sweatshirt is required. Some of it is the ease with which they can get excited about war, and some of it is the ease with which they can be persuaded that their self-image requires a really big pickup truck.

      Even politics is essentially psychodrama, or “kayfabe,” if you will. I’m always a little surprised when people ascribe any substance to any particular candidate. It’s eerily similar to listening to people discuss the merits Hulk Hogan versus Andre the Giant or Ric Flair. (I had to google some names of professional wrestlers.)

    “It was known, at the time, that Mr. Obama was a close associate (probably an apostle of) Chicagoan Bill Ayers, a former leader of the 1960s domestic terrorism group called The Weathermen.”

    When I was in the 7th grade, one of my classmates disappeared one day, and didnt return for weeks. No one knew why. It wasnt until years later that I learned his family had been the victim of one of Mr. Ayers’s bomb throwing exercises. Fast forward to 2018, and as a teacher nearing retirement, I was attending a staff development session where we were all handed a printout of one of Ayers’s books on pedogological theory. I tried to explain to those sitting at my table who he was, and got nothing but blank stares. Finally, I tore up the handout and flatly stated that I would be good and god dammed if some marxist bomb thrower was going to tell me how to teach kids. I got a letter in my file for that stunt, the first and only in 32 years of teaching.

            @ Night Owl:

            As near as I can remember without looking into it, “behavioral psychology” got its legs in th sixties. When I was in college in the seventies, I took a couple of psychology classes, and this was the only brand of psychology that was being taught at the time.

            The rationale behind the emergence of behavioral psychology–or so it was claimed–was to elevate psychology to where it was an actual science in which theories could be tested and outcomes could be measured. Historically, psychology had always consisted of a bunch of purely made-up mumbo-jumbo bullshit about supposed Oedipus or Electra complexes, penis envy, unfulfilled masturbatory needs and sexual frustrations, lurking ids and archetypes, etc. So psychology was basically a bunch of pompous, inflated, unctuous drivel proceeding from tarted-up Eastern religions and pre-Christian Western religions, seasoned with Greek drama.

            This stuff made astrology look respectable. (Actually, astrology is respectable and has a certain limited usefulness.)

            The “science” of psychology having run itself into a ditch, its practitioners decided to follow the lead of the rest of Western “medical” science, by switching to a purely mechanistic (and more ghoulish) approach: positive and negative reinforcement, conditioning, brainwashing, drugs, etc.

            So I guess science marches on.

Inside were huge gorgeous homes, all around what looked like 10K sq ft., and all with huge outside pools and gardens. The rumor was that the CCP elite live there. Makes sense.

    ALL democrat females are CUNTS not a woman and should be treated as such.

    • cowbell81 September 8, 2023 at 11:51 am #

      You have got that totally right. I would take it a step further and saw that any married woman that does not agree with the politics of the man in the household is not worthy to be part of that family.

      I refuse to date any woman who is an ardent democrat. That is the first clue that something is grossly wrong with her.

      • Cankerpuss September 8, 2023 at 12:48 pm #

        Democrat women are women who are eternally lost and confused as to what their biological nature and purposes in this mortal world actually are.

        Women exist to do one major purpose. Have and rear children. Yeah, I said it. I said it loud and clearly. Their bodies are designed exactly for that purpose. They are literal incubators for the fetus and then a nutrition factory for the child. Period. For millennia women embraced this purpose and upheld this inherently sacred responsibility.

        Then World War 2 comes along and yanks the women out of motherhood and puts them into the factories building bombs to kill millions. Propaganda is posted everywhere depicting women in the workforce as strong and powerful.

        This leads to the sexual revolutions of the 60s and 70s and the birth of the angry lesbian feminists fighting against men and masculinity in all of its forms.

        Look where it has left our women. What once was considered the “fairer sex” are now commonly seen as fat, poorly clothed, immodest, covered with tattoos, piercings and fake hair color. Their language is as filthy as a dock worker in Philly. They hop in the sack and screw any filthy man that is willing to touch her. She is left raising a family of boys and girls in poverty. And now she doesn’t even know what her fucking gender is, going to “doctors” to have her breasts cut off and her womb cut out. She denies her eternal purpose to bear and raise children and even, willingly, goes to another “doctor” to have him cut her own child from her body because she wasn’t smart enough to have her scumbag boyfriend wear a rubber or keep her knees together.

        Women today can’t find men to marry because any common sense thinking man doesn’t want to touch her with a 35 foot pole. He knows that if he does she will most likely leave him taking his children, half his wealth, pension and demand alimony. So many women now are alone resorting to lesbianism and polygamy because they can’t find themselves a man who will willingly put up with her bitchery and demands.

        Sorry ladies. You gotta get your act together. I find it curious that the degredation of society has almost nearly coincided with the degredation of the roles and powers of womanhood. As goes the women, so goes society.

        Yeah, I said it. No apologies. We need real women to come back and take up the vital societal and familial role they have abandoned. Enough of the tattoos, purple hair and body piercings. Enough of the exposed muffin tops. Enough of the abortions and gender transitions. Come back and be women again. Stop rebelling against your biology and reclaim society.

          @ Cankerpuss:

          I think most women do desire children and would prefer to be stay-at-home mothers and homemakers. Unfortunately, there are several factors that militate rather strongly against that, as a choice of career. One of the the main ones is that there are very few men with either the capability or desire to provide for a family as the sole breadwinner. Most men have a very strong expectation that their wives will work outside the home and thus that any children will be raised by babysitters and the public school system; Mom will never get to be a mother. Mom will also have two jobs throughout her married life: She will work eight hours and the office and another eight-hour “second shift” caring for the kids and running the household. The situation is roughly the same as it was in the old USSR. There was a very low birthrate and a very high rate of abortion, simply because the burdens of having kids in addition to working were too great.

          Another reason why women don’t choose a career as mothers and homemakers is that, by any objective measure, it’s a poor career choice. There is a very high likelihood that her husband will not provide for the family, or will engage in other behaviors that force her to end the marriage: infidelity, alcoholism, domestic violence, etc. So there’s about a 50-50 chance that she will find herself high and dry in 10-15 years, with four kids, little or no financial support, and very poor job prospects.

          There are probably very few fathers who would advise their daughters to aim for a career as mothers and homemakers. That’s because the fathers know that that is recipe for Grandpa supporting his daughter and her kids after they move back in with him, because her husband has run off with the side-chick. Even a girl’s father knows that the odds of such a career choice turning out well are not very good.

          Thirdly, even if marriage and a lifelong career as a mother and homemaker turns out well, said mom is almost certain to live in poverty in her old age. She we have no pension or other retirement fund through work. Even her Social Security check will be very small or even non-existent. (The size of your social security check depends on how much you paid in, which depends on how many years you worked for a paycheck. If you never worked for a paycheck, you get nothing.)

          There are remedies for these problems. Both men and women would have to become better marriage material. IMHO it’s mainly the men who need to improve, and that all those problematic women out there are the products of absent/abusive fathers, sexually exploitive men, and, often, sexual abuse as children–which is quite common. So the women are damaged, and, frankly, I don’t think damaged women can be completely “fixed.” Hence, good women will reappear in reasonable numbers only after the men have decided to be moral and decent for a generation or two. Two generations of keeping your pants zipped, not molesting children and female relatives, and not abandoning your daughters should do it.

          I don’t think many people are aware of this, but back before Social Security, kids who entered the working world were expected to send money to their mothers out of every paycheck–though I suppose that only applied if their mothers were widowed and had no other means of support. People in the US did what Mexicans do today: support their families and aging parents.

        Bravo, gents – gentry – good people. She has no interests apart from you. If she has, she will betray you and the State will back her up in doing so.

        • Anthea September 9, 2023 at 8:08 am #

          @ Jarek:

          You’ve made it clear that your interests in relation to women are evading all social, sexual, and financial responsibility. You are not alone. There are whole “men’s movements” dedicated to the proposition that it is a great injustice for women (and sometimes the courts) to expect men to take responsibility.

          And so, it often happens that a woman’s interests are indeed in opposition to those of her husband in those (very common) cases in which his “interests” consist entirely of evading responsibility.

          • Jarek September 9, 2023 at 12:33 pm #

            So men have responsibilities but no rights? That means they’re slaves in your book. And thus, what is the marriage contract but a man signing himself into slavery?

            In fact you’re massively projecting – which the fundamental female activity. Women refuse all accountability, not men.

            No sane man will marry in the West until the laws are changed – laws which incentivize women to break the contract. Never sign a contract which the other person will benefit by breaking.

            And the laws anent marriage will not be changed until the Fall of the West. The Church – if it was still real and sane – would disassociate its marriage rite from the State.

          • Anthea September 10, 2023 at 12:45 am #

            @ Jarek:

            Men of course have both rights and and responsibilities in relation to marriage–as do women. It has long been acknowledged that when one or the other party to the marriage fails to fulfill their marital obligations, this voids the marriage contract.

            Pretty simple.

            In actuality, virtually all of the responsibilities of marriage fall to women; men evade almost all of them. The women must be breadwinners, mothers, and homemakers. The men MAYBE contribute half of the breadwinner portion. Thus, men assume roughly one-sixth of the responsibilities of marriage, while women assume about five-sixths.

            Pretty good deal. And yet it is the men, the chief beneficiaries of the marriage contract, who break the contract–not the women. This is a matter of common observation. Out of the dozens of divorces I’ve known of, I have only known of one in which the divorce was not precipitated by the husband’s breaking of the marriage contract, through non-support, infidelity, alcoholism, domestic violence, or abandonment.

            I have also never known of a case in which a woman has financially benefitted from a divorce. Most divorced women live in poverty. Few get much in the way of child-support. (There is actually one possible exception among cases I’m familiar with, in which I am not sure of the outcome.)

            The only incentive women have for divorce is ridding themselves of an alcoholic, abuser, and financial albatross.

            So, hey, don’t enter into any contracts where you have no intention of upholding your end of the deal.

          • Jarek September 10, 2023 at 1:48 pm #

            You baldly state the fact that both have rights and responsibilities, then you get to real subject about how men are evil.

            This is the default position of American women. There is simply no good reason to engage with such people much less “marry” them. It’s a recipe for male ruin.

            Women divorce men 80% of the time. That’s the fact. You say that men are responsible for almost 100% of the divorces. Thus you are 180% wrong – as wrong as wrong can be.

          • GreenAlba September 10, 2023 at 3:19 pm #

            For goodness’ sake, Jarek, it’s not rocket science. If a woman initiates a divorce because her husband is shagging his junior colleagues, the divorce is down to him, not her. So your 80% figure means diddly unless you have data on why each divorce was initiated. He’s the one who broke the contract – she’s just following up on the admin. That’s just one example, by the way, since you have a sickening habit of assuming that when a person gives an example they’re somehow saying that there aren’t examples of the opposite.

            The fact is that you have no idea what caused any divorce without asking the people involved. And even then, you won’t necessarily get to the truth.

            What you seem to actually believe is that women should put up with philandering husbands. That makes it extremely useful to keep them from the ability to earn a reasonable living, should they need to. If they have no rights – which seems to be your aspiration – they can never leave the worst of husbands.

            I have no sympathy with women who screw their husbands financially for no good reason (I’ve never known any, so my sympathy has never been tested), but the principal argument against men having power over women is that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. You know that. Men do not behave well, when there are no consequences for behaving badly. And neither do women.

        “You have got that totally right. I would take it a step further and saw that any married woman that does not agree with the politics of the man in the household is not worthy to be part of that family.”

        My Christian mother voted Conservative her whole life, while my Christian father voted Labour. They went out together to vote and came back together and got on with their family life. He would have been disgusted by any man who expected his wife to vote the way he told her.

        I don’t even know who my husband votes for and I’ve never asked or cared, given that they’re all as bad as each other. That’s his business and who I vote for is mine. I’ll be going along next time to write ‘I do not consent’ on my ballot paper, because I won’t give them the satisfaction of counting me as ‘apathetic’. They count the spoiled votes, so they’ll be counting mine, whoever my husband votes for.

      • mrs_saj September 8, 2023 at 4:54 pm #

        cowbell81,

        You have got that totally right. I would take it a step further and saw that any married woman that does not agree with the politics of the man in the household is not worthy to be part of that family.

        Unfortunately, these sorts of stereotypes or mandates simply don’t hold in absolute terms. I am sure we all know a married couple where this would work just fine. But if you are honest, you also know a married couple where this wouldn’t work at all.

        I am more conservative than my husband. We didn’t start that way, I’ve moved to the right as I aged. The politicization of COVID and the vaxxines means that you expect me to agree with my husband on the issue of vaxxination. Does this mean my husband is deciding for me? I adore my husband. But he got this one wrong (twice). I begged him not to get the vaxxines. But he wanted to go on a golfing trip to Ireland. He never went on the trip. And he did not change his mind because of what I had to say. He had adverse reactions. That changed his mind. He never researched how to detox from the vaxxines, I did it because I want him around to enjoy a retirement that he so deserves. How can it be that I’m not worthy to be part of the family? I might have saved my husband’s life.

        There are many things he could be right about and I could be wrong about. And vice versa. But to hand one person the authority of having the “correct” politics by virtue of a genetic trait (ie gender) is just, well, nuts. Pun intended.

        And this is entirely different than your second statement of wanting to find a marriage partner you are politically compatible with while you are in the dating world. Have at it. I wish people spent more time thinking about what they are looking for in a potential spouse before they married.

        • Jarek September 9, 2023 at 12:43 am #

          “Stereotypes” – a pejorative. No thinking quantitatively allowed? “Don’t hold in absolute terms” – he didn’t say they did.

          You and Alba vote conservative. See? Women are just as conservative as men are!

          This is how they “think”! A sample of two (or even one!) is conclusive. The “my friend” psychology…..

          Alba doesn’t even know how her husband votes? Weird, but better than arguing about it I guess.

          • GreenAlba September 9, 2023 at 6:38 am #

            Making Shit Up again – where exactly did I say I’d voted conservative (I presume you mean Conservative)? I never have and never could vote for the Tories. I’ve voted Labour all my life, but won’t again as they’re every bit as up to their neck in WEFfery as the Tories. Certainly Starmer is – he’s in the Trilateral Commission. There is no party for people of my political and social views. I can hardly vote Green and I’ll never vote SNP.

            My husband used to be more politically to the right of me, but the left is no longer the left I used to feel part of, which was basically (a) anti-war and (b) for the protection of ordinary working families against exploitative capitalists AND authoritarian governments. Now, he just goes along with the government, whether he agrees with them or not. He’s not a party-political animal. He’s never voted Tory, to my knowledge. He does vote (postal vote). He has the choice of Labour and Lib Dem, as he’s not going to vote Green or SNP.

            And no, I don’t ask him how he’s voted. Once, I opened his postal vote by accident – even once I’d opened it, I deliberately didn’t look at the actual ballot paper, just as I wouldn’t read a letter addressed to him, unless he showed me it. I expect the same respect.

            Why would I care how he votes? I know what he thinks about most things, but which bunch of lying clowns he votes for just doesn’t hold that much interest for me. I doubt he’ll bother next time.

            BTW, making a direct correlation between Labour/Tory with Rep/Dem is silly. History matters and this isn’t a republic.

            And I didn’t say women were more conservative than men either. I said my mother voted Conservative all her life and my dad voted Labour. Women then were definitely more politically conservative – it’s not something innate.

            And do try to stop being a patronising git. It does you no favours.

          • GreenAlba September 9, 2023 at 6:54 am #

            BTW, if you’re so dumb you think my post was about men and women and their relative degrees of conservatism, you might want to read it again. It’s about men thinking they’re entitled to tell women to vote like them. My father respected my mother and didn’t think he had any right to tell her to vote Labour, just because he did (although, once they lived in England, my mother did know a few women at work, in her mid-life years, who slavishly followed their husband’s voting habits, without thinking. It was the industrial north-east of England and the Labour Party was embedded. Working-class men certainly wouldn’t have been happy with Tory-votiing wives, although there obviously were some.

          • GreenAlba September 9, 2023 at 8:13 am #

            “This is how they “think”! A sample of two (or even one!) is conclusive. The “my friend” psychology…..”

            So you might want to consider apologising for this bit of either rank stupidity or deliberate manipulation (I’ll let you choose).

            My mother’s Conservative voting pattern is not ‘data’ – but it is illustrative of the broader FACT that you can find elsewhere that the female vote was – on average and in the UK – more conservative at that time. Therefore it is not an immutable fact of nature, but dependent on circumstances – circumstances which I touched upon on the previous thread.

            Actually don’t bother with the apology. I’m merely pointing out that it is owed, which is a different thing from having any need of it. We all know how you operate.

          • GreenAlba September 9, 2023 at 8:40 am #

            Another reason for the Labour Party not getting as much of the female vote as it might have is that both it and the trade unions were resolutely sexist back then. They did not support equal pay for equal work.

          • GreenAlba September 9, 2023 at 10:51 am #

            BTW, as I’ve probably mentioned before to you, I have a degree in Politics, which included several years of Political Sociology, so I have no need to do ‘my friend’ psychology when it comes to voting patterns, since I had to study them back in the period I cited.

            You really are an arrogant *****.

          • Jarek September 9, 2023 at 12:40 pm #

            Women vote far more liberally than men do on average.

            That women think that because they are an exception to the above rule somehow invalidates the above rules shows they don’t understand what an average is.

            Yet at the same time, I know that the women here have above average IQ’s. As Mary said, she “aced” her statistics course. But actually use statistics in an actual debate? Not on your life. You all would forget everything you learned if it did not support an idea you like – even the usually and unusually sound Saj does this above.

            What can I say? One of the mysteries of the fallen nature as it manifests in women. This is why women simply can’t be allowed to vote – because they can’t stand clear thinking by and large.

            “Women vote far more liberally than men do on average.”

            At no point did I contradict this. At no point. On the previous thread I even suggested two reasons for it. I merely pointed out that it is not an immutable fact of nature, since it wasn’t always the case, certainly not everywhere.

            That makes your second paragraph frankly stupid.

            “This is why women simply can’t be allowed to vote – because they can’t stand clear thinking by and large.”

            Given that you have shown yourself to be absolutely incapable of clear thinking in this conversation, thank you for admitting that you should not be allowed to vote.

            What a relief to talk to a rational person. 🙂

            Yes, I’m watching these developments with interest and not a little concern. They’re gearing up over here too. There hasn’t been anything much from the government, but the media are full of articles about this or that scientist or expert who is concerned about either one of the new variants or swine flu (which has been covertly around in pigs, apparently, for some time) and bird flu. Usually, there is talk of new strains and China is involved.

            My husband and I both had invitations for covid and flu jabs, and they will be sending them to all over 65s. But some of those random experts are suggesting it’s not fair that it’s not being offered to everyone. Some microbiologist said there could be a winter lockdown …
            All the websites I use voluntarily are full of people like us, so the only general reactions I see are in comments on MSN articles, and I’d definitely say that the majority of the responses are along the lines of ‘are they really expecting people to fall for this rubbish again?’ WIth a few people still claiming that such an attitude is unscientific and irresponsible (and, of course, ‘right wing’), but they do seem to be in the minority.

            But re the overall majority? It’s anyone’s guess. I think maybe a large minority could still be scared into getting boosters. I just wish a few people would ask when in history there was ever a pandemic – of anything – that lasted 4 years without a break.

          • Paula D September 9, 2023 at 7:32 pm #

            I’m glad that you see more resistance, Green Alba, and yeah, since when do pandemics last four years??

            I remember back in late 2020, when they were trying to scare us with another year, and they solemnly informed us that the 1918 flu didn’t leave after 1918, it came back for another year.

            Really? That was news to me. But it did show their concern about keeping the fear going.

            But now, they just assume we are idiots, and they can tell us any damn story, and we will fall for it.
            And so here we are, heading into Year Four of the Scary Pandemic (that had diminished so much by spring 2020 that “vaccine” researchers were quoted saying it was a race against time, to get the vaccine out before the disease was gone. Good thing they had the UK variant all ready to release.)

          • GreenAlba September 10, 2023 at 12:24 pm #

            Paula – if you’re interested in the UK situation, I’ve just listened to an excellent interview with Andrew Bridgen, by a Canadian interviewer. It covers, covid, the coming vaxx and lockdown push, the London ULEZ (Ultra Low Emission Zones) policies/fines, which lots of countries are watching, because it will come to them too. It also mentions Andrew B’s work to get recognition of the service people who suffered from Gulf War Syndrome (even when they never went to the Gulf!). That was apparently about to be disclosed just when Covid broke. It’s a very interesting interview. I’ve heard him mention before about the 4000 ancillary staff at Westminster, of whom he says about 80% have thanked him, encouraged him, or told him that their church group is praying for him.

            Clearly, it’s the wrong people sitting in the seats in Westminster and the wrong people cleaning up and skivvying after them, or providing their security. They need to swap places.

            One of many anecdotes: a high-ranking government minister has recently told AB that her sister is paralysed from the neck downwards (Guillain-Barré) following a Moderna vaxx. She says she won’t speak out about it. Unbelievable.

            Jarek,

            Please re-read my comment. Your post seems to have skipped many of my points while at the same time attributing statements or opinions to me that I never said or don’t hold. I’m struggling to keep my response short as I don’t really see this as a good use of my time.

            cowbell81 commented ” any married woman that does not agree with the politics of the man in the household is not worthy to be part of that family.

            This is what I am addressing. There were no qualifiers in cowbell81’s comment, no exceptions mentioned; it is an absolute statement. I am arguing my worthiness to be part of my family is not derived from perpetual political agreement with my husband. I am also arguing the wifely political agreement just for the sake of agreeing with her husband is dangerous because it not only robs the couple of half of its two viewpoints, the couple is now solely relying on the husband being right, which isn’t a fair expectation of him.

            You have skipped over the love and care that I exhibit for my husband. You have skipped over the danger I have pointed out of a wife pretending to agree with a husband when she doesn’t really agree. This deprives him of her honesty. You have skipped over my point that everyone is wrong at some time or another, so presuming that the husband’s political view is the one that should be agreed with is problematic.

            Instead, you are reacting to words like absolutes and stereotypes.

            I don’t wish to argue statistics with you Jarek. For all I know, you have a PhD. in statistics. I stopped counting after my sixth college level stat classes. I earned an A in each class. I share this to assure you, I do understand the importance of sample size. And I understand one data point of a female being more conservative than a male does virtually nothing to adjust the average or the median [of a gender gap in conservatism] within the studied population. But when I read a comment (from cowbell81) about “any married woman who does not agree….” I’m going to give an example of how cowbell81’s assertion is wrong and can be dangerous. I said nothing about my one example proving women are just as conservative as men. It doesn’t. And they aren’t as conservative. But your reading comprehension seems to be poor. And I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve read someone reply to you “I didn’t say that.”

            I have never said that women are statistically more conservative than men. In fact I believe that women are statistically less conservative than men. Below is a link that supports your (and my) contention of women being less conservative voters than men. I think its a matter of some historical record keeping. And I like facts.

            The link below is only one page long and here’s an excerpt.

            A sizable 11 percentage-point gender gap was evident in the 2016 presidential election, with 42 percent of women and 53 percent of men voting for Trump. The 2016 gender gap was larger than in any year except 1996, when the gender gap for President Bill Clinton in his race with Senator Robert Dole was also 11 percentage points. Other presidential elections since 1980 have seen gender gaps ranging from four to 10 percentage points.

            We have tangled once before about stereotypes and generalizations. I don’t wish to continue with it. I’ve already pointed out to you they are not always true; there are exceptions to the generalizations. That’s why they are called generalizations. You may use them as you like to debate or to further your own critical thinking. But they don’t prove absolutes, they show patterns.

            To cowbell81, I wish to point out that subjugating my political opinions to my husband’s once we are married feels like “bait and switch” to me. What would you say if I started withholding sex from him after we married? What about withholding cooking for him after we married if I cooked for him before we married? Dating is an interview. A candidate for a job should not misrepresent themselves in the interview. It’s a great way to get fired. He liked my opinions before we married. I think it’s part of why he married me. Why would I deprive him of my political opinions, or of anything else, after we married? That doesn’t seem fair to him or to me.

            Saj: Thank you. But I hope you admit that many women think that citing one example – themselves or a “friend” is enough to upend an entire argument. I’m glad you don’t think this way – but can you admit that many if not most women do?

            And thus the franchise must ever be denied to them at this stage in human evolution. The best women are against other women.

            Remember, I did say you were usually and unusually rational. I don’t think I ever said you weren’t a good wife or anything. I don’t know why you got into that.

            Alba: Voting labor was an essential thing to do at one point. No doubt many women were too “conservative” to vote to conserve their nation. You all are always on about something. I remember how you were on about how India and China should be allowed to keep polluting while the West was to be virtually shut down.

            True Conservation of the Nation requires both “conservatism” and capitalism and “liberalism” and socialism. The two wings. Until this is understood, people, parties, and nation will continue to flop around on the ground like sea birds covered with oil.

            Such understanding is the basis of both Fascism and National Socialism – as epitomized in our own day by the growing power of China. It works if done well. Nothing else does, ultimately – at least not in the modern industrial state.

          • GreenAlba September 10, 2023 at 2:38 pm #

            “Voting labor was an essential thing to do at one point. ”

            There you go again. I did not say that. What does that even mean? You don’t clarify. I stated a fact, that where my parents lived was an industrial centre (although it was a lot more than that). I stick to facts – you make things up. I told you how people voted in a particular place and why. And, in the previous thread, why certain of them vote the way they do now.

            “No doubt many women were too “conservative” to vote to conserve their nation.”

            No idea what that means.

            ” You all are always on about something.”

            Goodness. I must be the only person on this board who’s always on about something. Seems to me everyone’s on about something, otherwise they wouldn’t say anything.

            “I remember how you were on about how India and China should be allowed to keep polluting while the West was to be virtually shut down.”

            More lies. I did not say they SHOULD be allowed to keep polluting. I explained the IPCC’s (or whoever’s) rationale that they were late to the party (partly due to the UK, in the case of India) and were being asked to stop partying the minute they arrived at the party. That wasn’t and isn’t fair. It doesn’t mean that you don’t have to sacrifice fairness for some other value if that is your inclination. That remains debatable.

            The rest is your opinion, your hobby horse.

            To say that either Nazi Germany ‘worked’ or that China ‘works’ is not a statement that means anything, without writing an essay. Neither worked, if you were not the favoured group.

            If you want to say a concentration camp ‘works’, whether it confines Jews or (earlier) Boers, then you need to define what you mean by ‘works’.

He governed as an incrementalist, unfortunately, and dealt with appalling racism. Fortunately, some responding to this blog benefitted from ObamaCare, based on a Republican plan that Republicans turned against because a Democrat proposed it. SAD.

          And they have the resources to pay “experts” to show them all the loopholes. Billionaires don’t pay taxes. They funnel all their money into charities and use those donations as tax write-offs. It isn’t generosity when Bill Gates gives hundreds of millions away to his favorite charities. It is self serving tax evasion at its finest.

          • OG September 8, 2023 at 1:30 pm #

            And not always to charities but always with an agenda.

            For example, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation gives millions to MSMs globally to gain control of the content that the masses are fed.

            Interesting fact: The foundation just purchased $95mm worth of Anheuser-Busch shares. Was the Dylan outrage a manufactured boycott to generate this buying opportunity?

            Coincidence? It was also $95mm that Biden just gave Hawaiian Electric for infrastructure of Lahaina‘s build back better [bbb].

            ” It isn’t generosity when Bill Gates gives hundreds of millions away to his favorite charities.”

            It’s not just about tax, although that’s part of it. When Gates ‘gives away’ money, he’s not relinquishing control of it. They don’t need to personally own the money, they just need to control what’s done with it, whether it’s money in a foundation or your taxes.

    Just thinking, Barack Obama as president was the first example of what was to come, men taking places reserved for women.

    From the Democrat’s perspective, the presidency in 2008 was to go to Hillary Clinton. Hillary was to be the historic first for women.

    Instead they gave it to a gay guy who hates women.

    • Cankerpuss September 8, 2023 at 12:32 pm #

      Women hating men are taking their revenge upon women for years of oppression and degredation at the hands of feminist school teachers and professors (male and female) through the years. And most women applaud this, support it and celebrate it. The feminists are silent as men infiltrate women’s sports and destroy women’s athletics. The feminists are silent as men infiltrate women’s restrooms and locker rooms. Women need to pull their heads out of their asses and wake up. Their gender is the one that is under attack.

      • Jarek September 8, 2023 at 1:02 pm #

        And the ones who do speak out, the Radical Feminists, are the ones who hate men the most.

    The brilliant Dr. McCullough points out, whenever someone posits that covid was rolled out to get rid of Trump, that the “pandemic” was a world-wide phenomenon, not limited to the USA. The lockstep actions of most governments revealed that there are shadowy actors able to control events on an international scale.

    Therefore, it had another purpose, unrelated to the US election circus.

    As for blackmail, are people still clinging to the outdated idea that Epstein, or anyone else, can hold sexual misconduct over anyone’s head? What is this, 1956?

    Please, bitch! I can guarantee that the recent Obama revelations will never make it to mainstream media, and the vast majority of Americans will not know about them.

    What’s more, even if every American did know, it would make no difference in any voting ritual they indulge in, any more than the revelations of DNC skullduggery that Seth Rich gave his life to expose.

          My mother-in-law cooked a Thanksgiving turkey in the microwave one year.
          I’m sure it seemed like a good idea at the time.

          Anyway, it came out looking a lot like when it went in. There was no browning at all.

          I’m assuming a microwaved person would be the same.
          But we know there was an actual fire, so that explains the charring.

    Gavin Newsom is not running in 2024! He made the announcement today.

      For now this is good news.

      However, it doesn’t preclude the possibility that the Uniparty won’t simply run legal and political shenanigans to install Newsom in the WH at some later date.

      • mrs_saj September 8, 2023 at 12:49 pm #

        thirdcoastlegend,

        Indeed, you make a great point. The Biden/Harris ticket wins…Biden dies or becomes incapacitated…. Kamala picks Newsom as her VP… Newsom undergoes far less scrutiny than he would have as a running mate…..And then Kamala steps down for health reasons (too many jabs?)….

        It’s all still possible.

        • Beryl of Oyl September 8, 2023 at 1:36 pm #

          Yes. Newsom’s statement does not have the finality that LBJ’s “I shall not seek and will not accept” did.

        I think either of your points are pretty close to the truth behind Newsom’s statement.

        I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who noticed how this statement went out of its way to sound grounded, sober, and polite.

        Sure Gav, sure.

      • bobfitz03 September 8, 2023 at 4:32 pm #

        Gav had show respect to Kamala and the Party.

        This opens the door for Harris and company to reciprocate when the Party shuffles her off the stage at some point.

        “Gav was a team player and good sport, but things have changed and he is now moved to answer the call. Jammie whole heartedly endorses the move.” Something along those lines.

        Remember, despite her current VP status, Harris far, far down in the California pecking order.

    “Will Barack Obama and “Joe Biden” end up sinking each other and the Democratic Party with them?”

    Nope. Not a chance. They control everything now. There is no opposition with any power. The Republicans are spineless cowards and a useful tool of the uniparty. Americans are too stupid and too apathetic to do anything about it. It’s all in God’s hands now and I find myself wondering if God thinks there is anything about this filthy nation worth saving? In other words, he has left us to our own designs. To reap the whirlwind of our sins. To sleep in the bed we have made with our twisted realities and obsessions of power and things.

    Barak Obama and “Joe Biden” are a symptom of a deep sickness that permeates the minds, hearts and souls of most Americans today. A godless and ammoral sickness. A righteous people would have no tolerance for a wicked Government. Period.

      I agree Canker. The stupid Americans are one thing. The Americans, like us, that know what is happening are to a large degree in Denial.
      We still sort of believe in American Exceptionalism. Surely this isn’t happening to us! Surely this isn’t happening to “the land of the free and the home of the brave”!

      This is the death of a once great nation. It’s been a long time coming. But it’s finally here. As a people, collectively, we deserve it. Like spoiled children we need a good whipping. And by God we are getting it.

      It will be interesting to see what emerges from this death and transfiguration. A renewal of the nation based upon its founding principles?, or a boot stomping on a face forever?

    • tuco22 September 9, 2023 at 2:10 pm #

      That’s true. A lot of bad things are coming to the United States. I believe that the country will be a lot smaller in the millenium than it is now, I think back to its original colonial makeup. So much of the country was obtained through theft or fraud that I think countries are going to undergo a great reset back to their original biblical boundaries rather than the political ones that have occurred over time. Just my opinion.

      • FGB3 September 9, 2023 at 3:08 pm #

        Tuco22 – agreed.

        The Great Lord of the Underworld, Hades, is intimately concerned with Death, but what is rarely considered is that after Death, He transforms, purifies, and renews with His inferno fire.

        Hades was in the last degrees of the Sign of the ‘Goat with a Fish’s Tail’ on July 4, 1776. He is back at that same place in the Zodiac NOW, some 247 years later.

        A whole cycle has been completed, and Hades is back to met out His judgement. And as the Greeks knew too well, Hades’ judgement cannot be over-turned, not even by Zeus Himself.

    Well, ladies and germs;

    Free bleeders….

    Yes! I think it is going to become a “thing”

    BOTTOM LINE UP FRONT: A key trigger for direct NATO-Russia armed conflict is a premature culmination of combat by the Ukrainian armed forces (UAF) in its counteroffensive. This week Kiev announced it would begin conscripting women with specialty skills to fill voids left by males aged 18-60 who are being pressed into military service in combat units – a sign that military personnel shortages are causing concern. Some Biden administration officials now estimate Ukraine has 6-7 weeks before the counteroffensive culminates.

    Conscripting women…this from this AM’s Situational Report.

    • Jarek September 8, 2023 at 1:29 pm #

        We should bring back the draft – by Executive Order if necessary (the way we do everything else now anyway). Everybody 18 to 24 subject to the draft – yes, women too. (Only fighting age, we don’t need to be shoving old out-of-shape couch potatoes into the meat grinder – yet.)

        Once Ellie Mae and Jethro are marching into the Jaws of Death (at least they got their gender-reaffirming surgery completed, at taxpayer expense!), maybe mom and pop McMansion will reconsider their complicity in the suicide of the US…

        No, they won’t… But bring back the draft anyway.

      Well, if we look at this as essentially a Nazi operation it’s not too hard to understand the concept of “fight to the bitter end” where everybody dies and everything is burned up. The Twilight of the Gods. My mom told me that during the last year of WWII a couple of her female friends were ordered into training to operate antiaircraft guns, and they did shoot those guns for a while. I wonder if any of those bomber pilots knew that women were also sending flak up their way. Since Nazis are socialists and include feminists, I suppose it’s only fair that women should also have the right to be conscripted to operate heavy military weapons.

        BackRowHeckler,

        The comment boards at zerohedge and coffeeandcovid are lighting up with skepticism about her story. To summarize: the blood looks fake, her makeup is too perfect, the part of her shirt that’s visible looks neat and unripped, her face isn’t smashed in, and rather than checking on her kids (who were with her during the incident) – she is taking a selfie and posting on fb.

        As a City Council member who was very in favor of defunding the police, this story is rich in irony. Most politicians don’t have to live the consequences of their policies. Greg Gutfeld made this important point on his show this week.

        Time will tell if she sauced up the carjacking story for more attention. Something happened, she is supposed to have a broken leg.

      • elysianfield September 8, 2023 at 8:19 pm #

        BRH,
        Reminds me of an incident in the bad old days. An OPD unit had a violent prisoner in custody, who, during his arrest, was bloodied. It was required that he be transported to the county hospital prior to jail.

        In the emergency room, a young doctor became indignant, demanding that restraints be removed. The arresting officer demurred and explained why the prisoner was in cuffs. The doctor, with an obvious show of superiority, demanded the restraints removed.

        After unlocking one cuff, the prisoner became extremely animated and attacked the doctor…beat the shit out of him, in fact. Word in the locker room was that the arresting officer might have lost a step in reacting.

    Quora

    The requirement is that Presidents must be “natural born”, which means citizens from birth, as opposed to “naturalized”, which is a person who became a citizen after birth. George Romney, John McCain and Ted Cruz were all born in other countries to at least one American citizen, are therefore “natural born” and few people contest their eligibility for the office. But the courts have not yet ruled decisively.

    The Founding Fathers believed that it was important that the presidency be restricted to people who were citizens from birth, and included that requirement in the constitution. So, the most definitive answer is “because the constitution says so.”

      In a nutshell, a person born to American parents or an American parent is considered a citizen at birth. Children born on foreign military bases. Children born to expatriates.

      In other words they were not citizens of another state who acquired US citizenship status through the naturalization process.

        In nutshell, here are the rules for jus sanguinis citinship for those born abroad:

        “A person born abroad in wedlock to two U.S. citizen parents acquires U.S. citizenship at birth under section 301(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), if at least one of the parents had a residence in the United States or one of its outlying possessions prior to the person’s birth. In these cases, at least one of the U.S. citizen parents must have a genetic or gestational connection to the child to transmit U.S. citizenship to the child.

        A person born abroad in wedlock to a U.S. citizen and an alien acquires U.S. citizenship at birth if the U.S. citizen parent has been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions prior to the person’s birth for the period required by the statute in effect when the person was born (INA 301(g), formerly INA 301(a)(7)).

        For birth on or after November 14, 1986, the U.S. citizen parent must have been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for five years prior to the person’s birth, at least two of which were after the age of 14.

        For birth between December 24, 1952 and November 13, 1986, the U.S. citizen parent must have been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for 10 years prior to the person’s birth, at least five of which were after the age of 14 for the person to acquire U.S. citizenship at birth. In these cases, either the U.S. citizen parent or their alien spouse must have a genetic or gestational connection to the child in order for the U.S. parent to transmit U.S. citizenship to the child.”

        For more details and conditions concerning out-of-wedlock births, etc. see
        httpX://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/legal/travel-legal-considerations/us-citizenship/Acquisition-US-Citizenship-Child-Born-Abroad.html

        Bottom line: In most cases for those born abroad, having two American parents does not *automatically* confer citizenship.

          How many recent cases of disputed US citizenry when having a USC parent have been litigated before the immigration courts?

          0

          The DHS immigration attorneys will never touch them.

          Because there is a constitutional amendment, and you cite an act of congress.

          The act aside, there is most importantly an amendment that they do not want getting SCOTUS scrutiny. Neither side wants any precedent here.

          The 14th, which is a prelude to article 2 when the presidency is concerned

    Greer and JHK seem to be arguing that what we are in the process of experiencing is the more or less imminent implosion of our social system under the weight of its own absurdities–hence all the important questions about who are the individuals and institutions pulling the strings and what are their motivations and ideology.

    I have come to a somewhat different diagnostic conclusion.

    What we are experiencing is not a collapse (at this stage) but the political, economic, social, cultural, and psychological consequences of the (re)arrival of totalitarianism.

    What is happening right now is a consolidation of power not a collapse of power.

    The best strategic move, taken this assumption, is not to passively wait for collapse but to actively organize ourselves to resist this totalitarian reality.

      I think it is quite possible that we are entering a new totalitarian age—an age of global totalitarianism.

      Earlier forms were nation-based. Now the technological means have been developed for the totalitarian system called One World Government.

      But first the power of nation-states must be destroyed.

      We should call out any One World Government ideas as totalitarian, whether instigated or executed from the left or from the right.

      I made a list of features of totalitarianism:

      #centralization of administration under party (party replaces concept of state),
      #destruction/gutting of civil society,
      #some form of Gleichschaltung,
      #top-down imposition of rules and culture,
      #total control of communications,
      #surveillance of all citizens, by citizens (working with state agencies),
      #creation of special language and euphemistic jargon to further propagandistic aims,
      #mobilization of citizens in large-scale social, economic, and military projects.

      So far I don’t see evidence of the last item occurring anywhere uder the new global totalitarianism. Perhaps the “group mask wearing” counts. OTOH, there is no more real “work” to be done on a mass scale, as in, say, China (manual labor building dams and doing large-scale landscape restoration not to mention agricultural field work) and the USSR, also Nazi Germany to a great extent.

        Gleich·schal·tung
        /??l?k?SHalto?oNG/

        noun: Gleichschaltung

        the standardization of political, economic, and social institutions as carried out in authoritarian states.

        I had to look it up! I can pronounce it now too, if anybody cares.

        • Islander September 8, 2023 at 9:08 pm #

          It is one of those hard-to-translate words/concepts.

          But it was central to the program of the Third Reich.

          Literally it means “same (gleich) switching.”
          httpX://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gleichschaltung

          (Interestingly, the German text for this entry differs somewhat from the English and includes this (translate): “The aim was to abolish the pluralism in state and society, which was understood as being divided, by 1934.”
          It is odd, or paradoxical, that “diversity” is being used as a pretext to divide American society in order to, perhaps, reduce it to a state where uniformity can be more effectively imposed. And to introduce and normalize some similar types of deviant behaviors that flourished in Weimar, at least in Berlin, prior to the cultural and social clampdown by the Nazis.)

          rapid transition or switch to coordination/sameness.
          A recipe or technique for rapid social transformation.

          What that meant on the ground: in a nutshell, the state, the administrative bureaucracy, and civil society were taken over by the Party. There were no more clubs, etc. Only party organizations. No local symphony orchestra. it was now the Party orchestra. Etc. Laws were passed to make all of this happen. The guy in charge of ramming through the Party program and new laws to bolster it was Wilhelm Frick.
          httpX://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilhelm_Frick

          • Night Owl September 9, 2023 at 3:09 am #

            It isn’t hard to translate. It simply means to make everything the same or bring things in line, gleichschalten being the verb.

          • Islander September 9, 2023 at 8:24 am #

            That isn’t a translation.

            That is an explanation.

            In fact, manly historians say that it is better just to use the German word than to try to translate it.

            Funny response for someone who has repeatedly insisted on the difficulty of anyone understanding anything—even straightforward things—in a foreign language unless they have studied it for years.

            But you have to argue.

          • Night Owl September 9, 2023 at 10:48 am #

            Read your first line.

            It is not hard to translate, nor is the concept difficult to understand.

      • jim September 8, 2023 at 9:24 pm #

        One key lever supporting my “we are now living under totalitarian conditions” is the historically successful implementation of our managerial regimes’ thwarting mechanisms, primarily through the Federal Reserve System, to prevent the collapse of our economy.

        This monetary and fiscal apparatus (a profoundly entangled state and private financial system with the Central Bank forming the ultimate backstop–direct Fed stabilization) appears to have a surprising degree of flexibility which adherents of economic/societal collapse may not recognize or completely understand.

        I will be taking a closer look at this lever and other mechanisms thwarting general collapse, with each aiming to consolidate and concentrate their own bureaucratic power and, in my opinion, enhance totalitarian control.

        • gustafson.robert.22 September 8, 2023 at 9:58 pm #

          The economy is energy, and ecology.

          Let either of those foundations be shaken and you’ll see how much your central banking means…

          • Islander September 9, 2023 at 10:05 am #

            It seems like the energy and ecology parts of the equation—or foundation—are already being shaken.

            Steps are NOT being taken to bolster those foundation stones. For starters, the Ukraine war and other militaristic ventures are wasting huge swaths of both the environment and the energy and minerals supply.

            So it looks like to me.

    White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has ended her relationship with her longtime partner and CNN anchor Suzanne Malveaux, according to a new report.

    Jean-Pierre, the first openly gay spokeswoman to hold press briefings for a US president, acknowledged the split in a Vogue profile published Thursday, saying she was now “a single mom who is co-parenting” a 9-year-old with Malveaux.

    “Our number-one priority is her privacy and to make sure we create an environment that’s nurturing,” Jean-Pierre added of the pair’s daughter, Soleil, but did not remark on the separation.

He’ll be let to make a whole lot of really great talking points early on, the better to take the steam out of him later on. Americans greatly fear change in times of turmoil, so the advantage goes to the incumbent, although in this case the incumbent will likely be replaced by a slightly more palatable stooge sometime during the process. And that’s before considering the fact that the election would just be rigged again if it finally comes down to that. For the benefit of the “slow learners,” of course. TINA!

    “… the hysterical response of Democratic Party rank-and-file women who regarded Donald Trump as the most extreme and horrifying embodiment of an archetypal ‘bad daddy’… sheer psychodrama… which men often fail to appreciate.”

    We humans all harbor a deep dark secret: We live out our lives and do most everything unconsciously on auto-pilot with little-to-no honest thinking. Then suddenly we don’t know why we think certain things or exhibit certain behaviors because we don’t know ourselves at core and what is truly driving us. Lots of things and ideas and attitudes have been pre-loaded into our consciousness before we even begin to gain a sense of who we really are inside. And State Media is always there to hammer away at our intellectual integrity and dictate to us everything we are supposed to believe.

    Generalizations Time: (Most) women have a deep-seeded anger at men. Women don’t feel respected by men (many men deserve this response). Women don’t feel valued by men (ditto). Women don’t feel secure around most men (because men don’t give them reason to feel secure). Women always feel the need to keep their guard up and to fight for recognition and status in a male-power-dominated society such as the West has mostly had until recent times when now it’s men being demonized… and these days, especially Lighter-Skin-Toned men who are the true pariahs and lost demographic of our Age. Institutionalized discrimination that has now been fully codified as being ‘OK’ by the Powers-That-Be. (Well, it’s NOT OK… it’s BS).

    (Women have their own culpability when it comes to how they relate to men but that’s for another time).

    So when poor Hillary (‘It’s MY TURN!’) didn’t get the big office handed to her as was her divine right in the mind of Democrat women… They saw this as a entire Cultural personification of every single slight and hurt and disrespect that every woman has received in her own lives. And just like he was cast by Hollywood… out steps the Big Bad (Deleted-grabbing) Wolf Donald Trump who was/is the perfect image for all of women’s perceived ills over the eons.

    And Trump doesn’t get this. He’s lost in his own delusion of being some kind of savior for Our Times and can’t comprehend that he is hated (for good reasons and poor reasons) by a great number of Americans. He’s doing his own Hillary-inspired version of ‘It’s My Turn!’. He can’t see that he can’t win. And his base refuses to believe that he can lose.

    When are We the People going to get it? None of these extremely damaged humans are going to save us nor are they likely to do one damn thing to make OUR lives better.

    It’s ego for ego sake. And We the People are so lost in our own delusion of faux-savior lust that we refuse to comprehend that they only people that will save us from anything… is we ourselves. Politics wants you to believe that the answers are found in politics. But all We the People will ever find in politics are selfish grifters that are only in the Game for themselves and with most of whom hating We the People they laughingly claim to represent.

    You elect damaged people to high office… you get damaged people in high office. Funny how that works.

      Except that it was launched all over the world, in lockstep, even where there were no elections. And its most totalitarian manifestations weren’t in the US, but in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Germany, France, Italy and Austria (non-exclusive list).

      • Night Owl September 9, 2023 at 3:12 am #

        Good point, although one could argue that the illegal mandates in the US were one of the most totalitarian measures seen around the world.

        They tried it in Germany, but it was stopped in the Budestag. Biden didn’t even allow a vote of any kind, he simply went full dictator.

        • GreenAlba September 9, 2023 at 7:07 am #

          I think Italy went all the way with workplace mandates? And, in France, everyone over 12 had to be jabbed every 4 months, at the height of the ‘pandemic’ to keep their vaxx pass green, to get into everywhere but the most basic shops. I was thinking of the police brutality too, which was shocking in some European countries and in Australia, in particular.

    You may ask yourself why the turn to Marxism by wealthy globalist and the political class. If you look at the conservative ideals of a nation organized as a a Republic, there are several concerns for the globalist. The strong Conservative Republic is best run with an educated middle class motivated to succeed without the hand of government. It requires a judicial system that is functioning in the eyes of the nation. This system worked best for the United States in periods of growth, the 1950’s and early 60’s. The Conservative Republic had several characteristics that were in direct conflict with wealthy globalist. It inspired nationalism, which was fine if there was a defined enemy such as the USSR, but after the collapse of the Soviet Union there really was no need for nationalism. A Conservative Republic also gave workers a sense of pride for their abilities to accomplish the American Dream, but if the ideas hatched in the board rooms of the 1990’s were to succeed, then those dreams would need to be offshored and bankrupted.

    Once the decisions were made to massively consolidate all of the global wealth and pay no mind to the hollowing out of government fiscal ledgers, a liberal communist ideal was needed. Populations needed to be indoctrinated through all channels and platforms that some outside danger (climate, covid, fiscal crisis) required increased government intervention. Populations needed to give up their freedoms and expectations because of the crisis and that these calamities would need them to bear all matters of burdens, especially in the near future.

    The BRICs nations have the audacity to stand in the way of this narrative. Just because the West had 400 years of prosperity, which half of they spent warring with each other, should give no expectations to the Global South, that they should enjoy their recently acquired comforts any longer.

    Let me say this: with the exception of a few die-hard, moronic imbeciles such as Bernie Sanders and the The Squad, full-blown Marxist Communism is dead–even in places like Communist China, Russia, etc. One might keep Venezuela and Cuba on the list of truly “Commie” crapholes that continue to exist, but they are abject failures.

    What has replaced traditional Communism in Russia and Communist China, and especially in the U.S. and among the denizens of the World Economic Forum is a far more dangerous witches brew of the worst features of Communist/Socialism and Fascist/Socialism. In this witches brew, the full-blown authoritarian characteristics of both
