All Aboard the Impeachment Express

“While [AG Merrick] Garland seems incapable of imagining any crime involving the president, he has made a conclusive — if unintended — case for an impeachment inquiry.” —Jonathan Turley

     Beach boy “Joe Biden” will be well-rested when the plan for his impeachment rolls out after Labor Day. Just because you’re not hearing any news about it now, with the county fairs on all over the USA, and the pols busy scarfing corn-dogs and kissing heifers, doesn’t mean that the key players aren’t confabbing among themselves. Hey, have you noticed, you’re hardly hearing about anything else these dwindling days of summer, either? Got any idea what’s up with that war in Ukraine? Of course you don’t.

    A preview for you then: Rep James Comer’s House Oversight Committee has already assembled a bundle of evidence tracking the exact ways and means of how the Biden family’s global bribery operation worked. That includes the bank records, the emails and deal memos, the chronology of meetings, the FBI documents, the phone recordings, the photos of “JB” schmoozing with Hunter’s “clients,” and the famous video of “Joe Biden” bragging onstage at the Council on Foreign Relations about how he strong-armed Ukraine President Poroshenko into firing General Prosecutor Viktor Shokin.

   Next, Speaker McCarthy has to form an actual impeachment inquiry committee. (If he tries to demur, there could be a new Speaker of the House in short order.) That committee will entertain witnesses, including figures in Justice Department who have been reluctant to discuss these matters previously. This might entail a Part B of the inquiry: the blatant obstructions of justice by DOJ officials in the long-running case on various charges against Hunter Biden, as supervised by federal attorney in Delaware, now Special Counsel, David Weiss. Mr. Weiss dawdled so strenuously for five years that he let the statute of limitations run out on the major tax evasion charges, while he ignored all the allegations of Hunter’s FARA violations in seeking money from officials of many foreign governments.

     There’s reason to believe that botching that case was well-coordinated with help from the Biden family DOJ “mole,” one Alexander S. Mackler, who had served as Senator Joe Biden’s press secretary in 2007-08, was campaign manager in 2010 for the Senator’s son, Beau Biden (deceased 2015), when he ran for Delaware Attorney General, and from 2014-16 was Deputy Counsel to Veep Joe Biden. Mr. Mackler was later inserted into the Delaware US attorney’s office as a prosecutor under David Weiss, from August 2016 to May 2019, while Hunter B’s case was under investigation. Did he function as the Bidens’ consigliere? Mr. Mackler was logged-in as a White House visitor five times after “Joe Biden” came to occupy it in 2021. Mr. Mackler is alleged to be currently serving as Chief Deputy Attorney General of Delaware (since 2019), but his name has been scrubbed by the agency’s website. See for yourself: https://attorneygeneral.delaware.gov

      Perhaps all this will be reserved for the separate impeachments of Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Wray. Bribery, racketeering, and treason may be enough for a presidential impeachment. Would the gravity of an impeachment proceeding override witnesses’ refusal to testify on the grounds of “an ongoing investigation?” How could it not, if those investigations are themselves a subject of the inquiry? Would the mainstream news media ignore the spectacle to suppress it? They can try, and then maybe we’ll get a test of how irrelevant they’ve become. The House will surely televise the proceedings. There are too many other alt.channels that will broadcast impeachment hearings, probably led by X (formerly Twitter).

    All of which raises the question: will “Joe Biden” really endure this ordeal? Or will the next thirty days be his window for exiting the scene? He is, after all, a mere prop in a show directed by others. Those others would include Barack Obama, who could easily be dragged into an inquiry about the Biden family’s criminal adventures in global money-grubbbing when Joe was Veep. How is it possible that President Obama didn’t know what the Bidens were up to? (The Intel Community can’t be that incompetent.) You see how ugly this thing could get?

    So far, the cabal running the “Joe Biden” show has avoided nuclear war as a distraction from what is hands-down the worst scandal in American history, way worse than Watergate. The four absurd Trump prosecutions are all ginned-up now, but may have peaked for distraction power — months of dull procedural wrangling lie ahead. An awful lot of rumors are pinging around lately about a new Covid-19 operation to be sprung on the public any day, with the usual kit of masks, lockdowns, and mandatory vaccinations. Do you really think Americans will comply with another round of this malicious nonsense? Fuggeddabowdit.

In April, 2023, Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) Kathie Breault was indicted in the Eastern States District Federal Court for “Conspiracy to Defraud the United States” for giving vaccination cards to people who did not receive Covid-19 vaccinations. Her defense is that the vaccinations were ineffective and harmful, and to administer them would violate the Hippocratic oath of health professionals (First do no harm). Her legal battle against a dishonest and vindictive federal government will require lawyer’s fees that exceed her ability to pay — a reminder that “the process is the punishment.”

Kathie has also been accused of “professional misconduct” by the New York State Licensing Board for prescribing Ivermectin via telehealth visits in July 2021. Many other medical practitioners across the United States have been similarly persecuted and some have lost their licenses to practice. Kathie has been under investigation by New York’s Office of Professional Discipline since March 2022. No decision has been reached as of May 2023.

    Greetings,

    I do not expect anything from the Republicans other than a sternly worded letter. Sad but true.

    • canuk August 28, 2023 at 10:05 am #

      Yes its Kabuki theatre.

      A kid stealing an ice cream in Mississippi has a better chance of going to jail than a US politician being treasonous and defrauds the taxpayer of billions of dollars.

      • Ron Anselmo August 28, 2023 at 10:10 am #

        Yes, but if the kid stole the ice cream from Dumbass Biden during a photo-op, he’d be a national hero.

      Same.

      Is the deep state really gonna let a handful of people bring them down and expose their operations?

      I don’t think that’s bloody likely.

      Comer better have some good bodyguards. Ones that are not easily bribed or coerced.

      • tuco22 August 28, 2023 at 11:38 am #

        No, the deep state will be brought down by 100-lb hailstones, the fresh water turning to blood, a third of all grasses being burnt up, a good part of arable farmland being inundated by the resulting tsunami from Apophis’ crash into the Pacific in April 2029, three days of darkness, demon locusts that have the power to hurt men (but not kill them) for 5 months (why 5 months)? Because they’re the disembodied spirits of the giants who died in the flood, and it took the strongest and biggest 5 months to die. So that’s their revenge. All that and more!

        • elysianfield August 28, 2023 at 11:46 am #

          Tuco,

          Who put the “schat” in eschatology?

          Just remember that the Old Testament God was a real kidder. When the Hebrews complained of their food while in the wilderness, he sent them…bug guano to eat.

          Eat ze Bugs!

          • tuco22 August 28, 2023 at 11:55 am #

            No, he sent them manna, but they got sick of that and complained (they always complained!) about it, so God sent them quail, which they promptly gorged on and got sick.

          • elysianfield August 28, 2023 at 11:58 am #

            Tuco,
            Yes…and manna was/is the droppings from a particular wood louse that infest tamarack trees. God was just tired of their damned kvetching….

          • Anthea August 29, 2023 at 2:18 am #

            @ elysianfield:

            It is the tamarisk that you are referring to, not the tamarack. The tamarack is a boreal deciduous conifer, also known as the larch. It grows in very cold northerly climates. They are common in the northern US and Canada.

          • elysianfield August 29, 2023 at 11:32 am #

            Anthea,
            You say risk, I say rack…let’s call the whole thing off….

            Thank you for the correction…

        • ThorsHammer August 30, 2023 at 5:48 pm #

          @tuco22

          The Reality Train is charging down the track. With each rotation of its wheels it accelerates toward the Grand Canyon where there never was a bridge in the first place. Yesterday the USA, using its NATO front and one of the Baltic state minnows, directly attacked an airbase deep inside Russia. There are no more way stations on the Escalation Line. The next one is the use of a tactical nuclear weapon in the insane belief that Russia will shrug it off and surrender.

          The world is at greater danger of an all out nuclear war than it has ever been since Homo Destructivus crawled out from under a rock on the seashore.The danger comes from the fact that the dying Empire is ruled by a degenerate cabal that is clinically insane. Call it the One Indispensable Nation, the European Union, The Deep State, or The Sons of Stephan Bandera, the depth of its insanity is such that it ratchets up its level of provocation with each opportunity.

          The US/NATO has lost its war in the Ukraine to Russia. Our only hope is that the USA will employ it’s vast propaganda resources in the Orwellian project of convincing its domesticated subjects that Defeat is Victory and adopt the Afghanistan solution to turn tail and run. Russia has no need to conquer the dying Empire with the force of arms. Fentanyl, spike protein miscarriages, fake food, and living in a filthy tent on the sidewalk will do it for them.

    • dilbert113 August 28, 2023 at 11:08 am #

      Exactly. Republicans are part of the same swamp. They have no interest in changing things. They will try to use this talk of impeachment to fundraise, though as the Republican Party fades away I don’t think they are raising much $.

      • tuco22 August 28, 2023 at 11:21 am #

        They can’t even put up a viable candidate for the presidency. Trump is out because even if by some miracle he wins the election, they’ll never let him have a successful term, it’ll be a repeat of the first time only on steroids. Or they’ll assassinate him. I think DeSantis comes across as too authoritarian for most middle-of-the-road, go-along-to-get-along Americans, who don’t necessarily disagree with much of what he stands for, but don’t want it publicly known in case they have to switch in the middle of the river, so to speak. So who does that leave?

          Ramaswamy

          • ThorsHammer August 29, 2023 at 10:07 pm #

            I’m really impressed with Vivek Ramaswamy. He is brilliant, able to speak at length on any topic without pause at a length not achieved by any politician since Fidel Castro. It is almost as if he had run every concern of the American public through a Cray computer running the latest AI program and had it print out his electoral platform.

            And then one begins to investigate how he became wealthy enough to run for the presidency. He bought a company that held the patent on a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. Got a very good deal on it because it had failed every test and never brought a product to market. As part of his purchase he also got the test results that were the basis for it’s denial. With a bit of creative re-writing (reportedly done by his mother!) he “developed” a new product and started the well-know Wall Street practice of pumping the stock. He sold almost all of his shares the day before the news caught up with it and the stock’s value crashed in the direction of zero. But not before he became a multi-billionaire.

            This story really needs an investigative reporter of the quality of Whitney Webb to sink her teeth into it and turn it from story into documented history!

            What it looks like at this point is that Ramaswarmy looked around after pulling off his pump and dump scam, and said “If rich investors are so easily fooled, why not pull the same game on the entire American public”? Sell them the Truth and give them the Shaft!

        • FGB3 August 28, 2023 at 5:06 pm #

          Vivek Ramaswamy

          • MaryQueen August 28, 2023 at 8:28 pm #

            LOL.

            Clamoring for a WEF puppet. This really is priceless.

          • C.O.Jones August 29, 2023 at 11:19 am #

            Vivek made his money with the classic Wall Street move known as the pump-n-dump.

            He bought an Alzheimer’s drug from Glaxo that had failed 4 tests – bought the tests too. Never conducted another test, just re-wrote the old test results to make the drug look promising when it was an abject failure and never made it to market. Vivek took the test results his mom – no kidding, his mom – re-wrote and used those results for an IPO soliciting investors to the tune of over a billion dollars, knowing all along the drug did not work.

            He sold his stock right before the drug was turned down again. The price of the stock plummeted when the drug failed to gain certification. So he pumped up the price of the stock and dumped it all right before the price went in the commode.

            Smooth move. Now he’s on stage talking about how he’s going to make America great again. He’s got a great smile and a good line of BS, just like his MAGA predecessor. I don’t trust him as far as I can throw Chris Christie.

          • mrs_saj August 29, 2023 at 1:47 pm #

            C.O. Jones,

            Thank you for this. I have been too lazy to research much about Ramaswamy and now I will do it. If what you say is true, and I’m not doubting you, then he is a prototypical member of the continually evil pharmaceutical apparatus that infects this planet.

      • tuco22 August 28, 2023 at 12:04 pm #

        elysianfield: I beg to differ. They were often in places without tamarack trees, anyway. And why didn’t it fall on the sabbath day if it was just insect droppings?

        • elysianfield August 28, 2023 at 2:49 pm #

          the biblical manna comes from the secretion of insects on the branches of tamarisk trees, which to this day grow in the wadis of the southern Sinai mountains. Bodenheimer has suggested a similar explanation of the origin of the manna. Two genera of coccidae parasitize on tamarisk trees of the species Tamarix mannifera. On those growing in the Arabah Valley, in the lowlands of the southern Negev, and in Sinai, there are large numbers of the coccus Najacoccus serpentinus minon, which is covered with a pocket in the form of an elongated tube in which it lays its eggs. Another coccus, the Tradutina mannipara, lays its eggs in a cone-like pocket. These two coccidae extract the sap, rich in carbohydrates, of the branches of the tamarisk, the excess carbohydrates which their bodies cannot absorb being excreted in the form of drops of transparent liquid that congeal into white globules,

          We can agree to disagree.

            There have been innumerable archeological surveys to find physical remnants of the Exodus-none have been found .

            Sorry, the Exodus is a myth-i that many people had travelled years in the desert there would be physical manifestations.

            Doubtful much will be left.

          • Paula D August 29, 2023 at 11:22 am #

            Wow, EF, I have always heard the expression “manna from heaven” and assumed it was something good.

            Now you have officially blown my mind. Bug shit? That’s worse than the WEF offerings.

          • C.O.Jones August 29, 2023 at 11:38 am #

            Exodus 16:4 states that God gave the Israelites manna from heaven.

            If you don’t believe what the bible says, it would be easy to believe manna was really bug poop and that Jesus walked on the water because it was low tide.

            Demanding scientific proof of a people’s journey thru the desert is a little silly. Kinda like demanding scientific proof of God’s existence. I will pray you find Him.

            By the way, the journey that took the Israelites 40 years could have been made in 6 weeks if not for their unbelief.

            Peace.

            Deuteronomy 8:3

            He humbled you and let you be hungry, and fed you with manna which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the Lord.

      Bingo. What does the word “impeach” even mean anymore? It sounds like it means to kick out. And indeed it once meant that. Now it just means to censure and reprimand. Trump got it impeached too – twice, wasn’t it? So what?

        That’s not how the deep-state behaves. It’s against the secret handshake code and all unless, of course it’s prearranged. Biden is not the punching bag. Donny is.

        And you really thought the Pandemic of Fear was over once the Corona Virus had mutated into a form where it was only as dangerous as the seasonal flu, but the common cold as well? Line up for your new death clot to prevent the common sniffles!

        Mass psychosis is not so easily curable. Especially not by facts and logic. For those affected by Brain Parasites (or spike protein intrusion across the blood/brain barrier) it is much more comfortable to just Believe, and follow the instructions of the Experts even though you know they are lying.

        Joe Diaper Brain has just submitted a 40 billion dollar budget initiative for the development of a new genetic attack on “everybody”. As MQ points out, the un-elected “leaders” of the EU are already ahead of the OBiden Brain Trust in developing Universal Mandate protocols to control travel, access to food, and enforced compliance. To say nothing of the Chinese, who pioneered and tested the idea of regulation by Social Credit Score.

But when it comes down to it, they will support the OBiden Crime Family to prevent Orange Jesus from ever being released from prison even if he receives 70% of the actual vote. Give up their Hospital Privileges and doctor’s income by standing up for the Hippocratic Oath? Never!

        So add up the domestic EU herds, countries in Latin America and Canada that were even more “vaccine” subservient than the US, along with the 40% of the US voters who have incurable Biden Brain, and you have a majority—- not only of the means of Propaganda but the means of violence to enforce their pogroms.

            The newly appointed “alcohol czar” has declared that there will be a limit on alcohol consumption. Do you suppose they intend to enforce that via social credit score?

            Imagine placing your 12 pack on the counter, inserting your debit card – or placing your hand under the scanner – only to be told you already bought beer once this week, come back next week.

    Marginally related to the mention of the new variant of the disease never shown to actually exist, I see that the Biden admin. is now moving to drastically reduce and potentially ban consumption of alcohol.

    I myself down quite a few Trappist beers and Hefeweizens during the week, and have long found beer to do me good (not talking about getting drunk).

    Given what we have experienced these past few years, I do wonder what it is about alcoholic beverages that the technocrats don’t want us getting?

      In Ireland till the 1990’s Irish doctors would prescribe one pint of Guinness a day to pregnant women-there’s alot more autistic kids now than then-why is that? Hmmn

      • Billy Hill August 28, 2023 at 10:33 am #

        Maybe the Irish doctors were onto something at least insofar as the mental health of the women was concerned. Just today in ZH a story broke on new Autism research raising grave doubts about the presumed genetic cause. (apologies for the off-topic diversion so early in the week..).

        “An extensive meta-analysis of 25 autism studies could shift the focus of research into the cause of autism from genetics to environmental triggers. That shift could open up new, revolutionary avenues for potential treatments.

        The research ties the disorder to changes in the gut microbiome, a community of microbes that live in the colon and are responsible for creating metabolites and other compounds crucial to our health and wellness.

        Many influences outside of the human body are killing these beneficial microbes, which aren’t genetically part of us but live in symbiosis with humans. The new study, published June 26 in Nature Neuroscience, has linked autism spectrum disorders (ASD) to a distinct microbial signature that’s dysbiotic, or unnaturally out of balance. As in an ecosystem, too much of certain problematic species can destroy the overall ecology or lead to problematic consequences, such as too many of certain metabolites and not enough of others.

        Meanwhile, autism rates are increasing at a speed that defies improved screening and diagnostic practices, as well as genetic patterns. The Centers for Disease Control released statistics in April that show the latest autism rate was 1 in 36 children in 2020, up from 1 in 44 in 2018, and 1 in 150 in 2000.”

        • Beryl of Oyl August 28, 2023 at 11:02 am #

          RFK Jr. was supposed to head a Vaccine Safety Commission in the Trump Administration, that offer was withdrawn; then according to RFK Trump still wanted to establish an autism council, but it’s unclear why that never came about.

          Dr, Fauci was involved by that time, so he likely had something to do with it.

          There is still disagreement s to whether autism is increasing, but from what I see myself, it clearly is, even without all the “on the spectrum” stuff.

          Another case of President Trump’s instincts and intellect being correct, and him allowing some bad actor or idiot to dissuade him.

            “It’s a good illustration of an overly optimistic outsider stepping in without a true understanding of the deceitful inner workings of a corrupt government.”

            It’s the reason I give him a pass on at least some of what he promised but didn’t deliver. I don’t think he had a clue about what he was facing, and his ego is big enough that he probably thought he could handle whatever came his way.

            That childish need to be liked and acknowledged as special is his big flaw. It was on display in the interview with Tucker, where he more or less gave a pass to Gavin Newsom because Newsom schmoozed him. “He likes me!” Although he admitted more or less that Newsom had destroyed California, he couldn’t bring himself to oppose someone with whom he’d had “lots of nice conversations.” (That’s not exactly a quote, but it’s close to what he said).

            There are worse character flaws, and sometimes the desire to be praised is almost charmingly childlike, but still – it’s a shame that he can’t seem to outgrow it and get out of his own way.

            A lot of Trump’s failure while in office is attributive to his arrested maturity as an individual. And yes, he was vastly preferable to the pure evil that has characterized Joe Biden throughout his career in politics/grift.

            What we are talking about is Trump’s personal disqualification to become President in this country’s time of extreme need. Yes, he has been subject to the most outrageous attack by the forces of totalitarianism that the nation has ever faced. But that is not enough.

            1- Due to the overwhelming size of his ego he is constitutionally unable to admit when he has made a mistake. Prime example: He is almost the last human on the planet to still proudly take credit for “my beautiful vaccines”. brought to us by his lieutenant Dr. Mengele-Fauci.
            2- Trump is on record as having said about the murderous Clinton Crime family: “The Clintons are Good People” That alone disqualifies him from holding public office!
            3- Among all the mendacious (and with rare exceptions, brilliant) aspirants to the office of the Presidency, Trump is the one with a proven track record of being unable to confront and challenge the Fascist Deep State. We have no reason to believe that a second term in office would be any different.

          • Paula D August 29, 2023 at 11:35 am #

            I remember the concept of “Poor Little Rich Kid”, when I was a kid.
            The idea was that rich kids were brought up by nannies and then shipped off to boarding school at the earliest possible age.

            They didn’t have the loving families that poor people were supposed to have. (And I actually did, so I got the concept.)

            I’m pretty sure that Trump was shipped off at a young age. I assume he was brought up by nannies.

            I have a relative who worked at a school for rich kids. She talked about the child of a famous actress who acknowledged his nanny, not his mother, when he graduated from the school. She said that all the teachers had tears in their eyes, because that woman was notorious in that school for her total lack of interest in her children.

            Does Trump ever talk about his mother or father?

        • tuco22 August 28, 2023 at 11:15 am #

          The only constant variable in that equation is the vaccination schedule. I personally wonder whether Alzheimer’s isn’t caused by a delayed reaction to some vaccine we get as kids.

          • Jarek August 28, 2023 at 12:32 pm #

            Many kids have had an immediate and overwhelming reaction, becoming autistic when they were fine before. So I think that is the most reasonable answer for at least some of the explosion in autism.

            Has Alzheimer’s exploded in similar fashion over the same time frame? A Tibetan Lama told me that Tibetans didn’t get this. He blamed it on the stress of modern life.

          • Beryl of Oyl August 28, 2023 at 1:08 pm #

            Jarek it could just be that Tibetans didn’t notice the difference.

          • Jarek August 28, 2023 at 1:24 pm #

            No, they’re not. It typically comes with all kind of disabilities, including physical.

            Low IQ Africans, IQ 70, are capable of ordinary life, including learning complicated rote tasks.

          • Beryl of Oyl August 28, 2023 at 2:11 pm #

            Jarek, not all autists are retarded. Those two things frequently go together, in fact there are those who believe the autism diagnosis is becoming more frequent because parents would rather hear that.

            They are separate conditions, though.

          • Rowdypiglet August 28, 2023 at 3:03 pm #

            I’ve worked with autistic children and, yes, sometimes it’s accompanied by low IQ. I don’t know what the statistics are. But it’s certainly much more than that, and can render a child with a relatively high IQ quite unable to function. These are disabilities of a higher order, and some of them are nearly indescribable, but they make any sort of normal life quite impossible.

          • ThorsHammer August 28, 2023 at 4:13 pm #

            @Jarek

            My personal experience with one of your “low IQ Africans” was in my graduate school cohort. He was heads and shoulders intellectually above the other 20, including me. Fluent in three languages, published two books in French, as well as several translations of technical papers. Oh, and a member of the Barbados national team as a sprinter.

          • Jarek August 28, 2023 at 5:31 pm #

            Bravo, Thor. Compare the smartest Africans with ordinary Whites and say that they’re equal. We don’t even need “experts” to do it – because Whites now do it themselves as you just did. Most Whites in college shouldn’t be there, obviously.

            No doubt you had no problem when Hollywood made Heimdall, Black. He, the guard of Bifrost, who can hear the grass grow, as a Black!

            People can shit on us all day long and Whites don’t mind, but say anything against a Black and their ire comes up. Xenophilia to a fatal degree. The love that should be for their own race given to another.

            There’s one billion Africans, obviously not all of them have 70 iq’s.

            However, 70 is the average, whether or not you like to admit it, it’s low and that means they don’t think on the level that we do.

            For an example of them not thinking on the same level, look at Africa.

            Jarek already made the point, but why is it you feel the need to deny that they are different in this way?

            Denials such as your post above, are (the reason) why younger groups of race realist Whites mock the older generations, who might otherwise have a lot to offer, is because they absolutely will not admit some very basic and obvious things, such as that groups of people are different in ways that are not fair or flattering.

            I might call it Zoophilia, to be frank, and I don’t choose that word lightly. There’s a certain charm and fascination of looking at these very very different hominids, and being impressed with how like to us, they can be, not to mention how musical.. and at the same time having to go to outrageous lengths, such as your post above, that they are “just as good as us, dammit!”

            “Multi-level analysis of the gut–brain axis shows autism spectrum disorder-associated molecular and microbial profiles”

            In my own non-scientific opinion this does not eliminate as a factor the vaccine tsunami to which we subject our newborns in the USA, but I have not peeled away the layers of the onion here.

            the importance of gut bacteria. – beantownbill

            ===========

            In Oct 2022 I posted a comment about gut bacteria in hopes of getting some kind of reply from all the religious fanatics here at CFN. I don’t recall getting any responses so I’m going to try reposting. See below in italics. What do you think about the trillions upon trillions upon trillions of immortal bacterium souls? What could be more important than this gut bacteria issue?

            I read that an adult human is comprised of approx 30 trillion cells and contains within it (mainly in the digestive track) 40 trillion bacteria. As I understand it, each cell of the human does not have its own soul or animating principal but rather as a group functioning as a single ‘being’ which has but one animating principal, or soul if you will. And what happens to that soul when it no longer animates the inanimate material of the body? Does it somehow continue to exist?

            Bacteria, on the other hand appear to be individuals each with its own animating principal. And the turnover rate of die-offs vs the coming into existence of new bacteriums via division is about every 12 minutes. Why should a bacterium’s soul be any different than a human’s?

            Immortality is the biggest issue of anything that has lived.

            What they tell expectant mothers about the dangers of small amounts of alcohol doesn’t appear to have the science to back it up.

            I think it’s something doctors do to cover their butts, because when some drunk has a baby born with problems she might blame the doctor for not telling her not to drink.

            We’ve already seen that happen with coffee.

          Fetal alcohol syndrome is huge in Ireland. Pregnant women shouldn’t drink.

          Alcohol increases estrogen so the above makes sense. A man who has been working hard all day may benefit from a mug of beer. For everyone else? You are turning into a woman.

      “Given what we have experienced these past few years, I do wonder what it is about alcoholic beverages that the technocrats don’t want us getting?”

      Well, Prohibition (and all such control mechanisms) were a windfall for the Mob. Really put the wind in their sails.

      Prohibition of drugs has been a windfall for the CIA, ever since the Golden Triangle and Afghanistan. Now is the CIA competing with the Mexican cartels?

      Lateral leap: It seems wholly fitting that Biden of Delaware (home of US usury) has racked up the greatest pile of dough while “serving” the public—the corporate public, that is. I’m sure his Delaware friends such as the credit card industry have been able to share all kinds of tips on how to set up shell companies and disappear the money offshore somewhere.

      Maybe Comey et al. can hire some of the investigators who pried open the Panama Papers and the Pandora Papers.

      Perhaps instead of indulging their defeatism here, CFN commenters could better spend their time by contacting their elected representatives and both Comey and McCarthy and urging them to move forward with the Biden impeachment.

        Oh yeah. It takes farming to make beer.

        So far, no one his thrown him into a fiery pit from threatening to starve millions of people.

        • Islander August 28, 2023 at 1:56 pm #

          Michael Oswald, in “Behind Closed Doors: The West and Global Corruption,” documents Kerry going to Africa to try to get countries there to switch to “green” wind and solar.

          Meanwhile, per Oswald, African countries are already far more “green” that the global North because the former use a lot of biofuel.

          Of course Kerry would like African countries to waste their foreign exchange on purchasing Western technology.

          This segment is fairly early in the film.

          httpX://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uob5Q2dqS4k

          Since Kerry is such a sailor, and so big on wind, I really think he ought to be able to figure out how to use the wind to get from Cape Cod to Africa. It’s not really that far.

      Health authorities in their multitudes (government functionaries, website “experts,” recovery-facility executives, etc.) engage in a perpetual contest to one-up each other. The winners are those who can find the most threats to body and mind in the foods we eat, the liquids we pour down our gullets, our thermometers, and the air inside our lungs and our heads.

      Unfortunately for the health priesthood, virtually every dangerous substance is already spoken for. How can a certified alarmist rise above the pack? Who can garner points for yet another sermon about putting vegetables on your plate and sending carbs to outer darkness?

      Let’s see: there must be some no-no that has been mere background noise since before today’s generations were born. Alcohol, that’s what!

      Prohibition ended in 1933. Everybody at the time agreed it had been a raging farce. But that was a long time ago, long enough that the former consensus has been gathering dust on a shelf in the social archives.

      Much as they might want it, our medical constabulary knows that Prohibition 2.0 is off the table. (For now.) What to do?

      Got it!: moderation. With spurs on. Who can gripe about that? Give the deplorables a generous two beers a week. It’s for the children … of all ages. And wow, won’t the other game players be envious! Where’s the megaphone?

    Since it’s painfully obvious Joe Biden isn’t in command of the government, I have to wonder what his purpose actually is. Clearly, Joe Biden is a tool, not just in the sense that he’s a dick, but rather he’s being articulated by someone to do a job.

    Are they going to push him across the finish line so he can pardon everyone from the Clintons to Vindmans? Simply connecting the dots revealed these past 7 years convinced me that if Hillary Clinton had won the 2016 election, the Ukraine war would have started in 2016, and covid would have been a key operation in that effort. A LOT of TREASON has drifted by our attention in the years since and it’s finally getting noticed.

    Otherwise, if he’s not there to pardon the bastards, then he’s there to take the fall. He doesn’t even know, why would he care?

            I think everyone is missing one factoid regarding the proposed alcohol limits: cannabis. Almost all small cultivation has been squeezed out in USA. While both alcohol and cannabis are scheduled intoxicants, the former makes one fight the latter makes one compliant. No lie, the cost to produce high quality cannabis (no distribution cost included) is less than $1/gram. Tip of the spear.

          • Islander August 29, 2023 at 2:42 pm #

            Aelpha: Interesting.

            The whole cannabis thing has always left me somewhat uneasy. Starting way back in the sixties/seventies, when college kids discovered pot/Mary Jane. I probably tried it about twice. I did not like being around people who smoked pot. Or “discovered” getting high.

            My parents were already Bohemians so to speak in the fifties. I really didn’t need any hippy behavioral shit in my life.

            I am all for medical marijuana. But I am not happy with the profile of those managing the new legal pot outlets for recreational pot (the few I know of)..

    Election season is starting, and the Democrats need to get their players in a better place. This is how I think they do it. Dianne Feinstein resigns. She is replaced by Kamala Harris (that gets her out of the way). Gavin Newsom is named VP. Joe Biden resigns, Newsom becomes President. The Democrats have a much stronger, younger candidate. The Biden scandals become old news.

        By denying them moral agency, you deny their humanity. You have a lower opinion of them than I do.

        Women? Same thing. I would never deny a woman her wages, what she has earned, what she has coming to her. She has moral agency and must be give her just deserts, no matter how horrible.

            In response to Rulo down below:

            “just deserts” vs. “just desserts”
            June 7, 2021
            We’ll keep it short and sweet — this phrase has nothing to do with sugary treats.

            It’s easy to confuse deserts with desserts because both words are pronounced the same way. But the word deserts in this phrase has nothing to do with cake and ice cream, or with dry, sandy places. Instead, desert comes from the same root as deserve, which should help you understand the meaning of this phrase: a punishment that is justly deserved. Getting your just deserts refers to receiving an appropriate punishment for whatever offense you have committed.

            As these examples show, just deserts is almost exclusively used to refer to punishment rather than reward:

            Sometimes beloved characters depart much too soon, and sometimes villains get their just deserts. (New York Times)

            The man got his just deserts, but he didn’t deserve to be tarred as a traitor without a trial and conviction (Washington Times)

            Because dessert usually comes at the end of a meal, and is often seen as a reward for good behavior, it’s easy to see how people often get this one wrong. In the following examples, desserts has been erroneously swapped in for deserts — but since these sentences refer to crime and punishment, references to sweet treats don’t really make sense:

            Therefore, Rulo, deserts was correct. Also, deserts was correct because I was quoting Jar.

            They’ve already been phasing out grain use for alcohol fermentation. More and more beers are using corn syrup or simply sugar in the process, as it produces a milder tasting brew. Turns out many of the youngsters these days don’t really like the taste of traditional beer.

    “Rep James Comer’s House Oversight Committee has already assembled a bundle of evidence tracking the exact ways and means of how the Biden family’s global bribery operation worked. That includes the bank records, the emails and deal memos, the chronology of meetings, the FBI documents, the phone recordings, the photos of “JB” schmoozing with Hunter’s “clients,” and the famous video of “Joe Biden” bragging onstage at the Council on Foreign Relations about how he strong-armed Ukraine President Poroshenko into firing General Prosecutor Viktor Shokin.”

The racket basically amounts to treason, so the compensation will need to be substantial.

      Think about it. “All nations must participate”. It would make sense of all the nonsense. The Afghanistan withdrawal. Funneling all that money into Ukraine. Half a million dollar blow jobs.

    MACKLER is a new name for us in the Biden saga. It means “dealer” in German. Apropos? Indeed the link Jim provided shows no mention of Mackler.

    However, the website’s homepage does inform us that they forced the Mayor of Camden to resign:
    “King, 41, was until recently the mayor of Camden, Delaware and owns several businesses in the area. On February 25, King confronted two male victims, both 19, whom he claimed had been causing mischief at his car wash. King shoved the victims and, at one point, pulled on a victim’s hoodie while he was on the ground.”

    Think about the 1920s with prohibition.

    The Roaring Twenties, more booze was manufactured and drank under black market conditions than before or after.

    Trying to get rid of the Biden Mob is going to be more difficult than Capone. They never really got Capone but for an income tax evasion charge, never for his bootlegging or Mafia killings.

    Today is worse because the judiciary is controlled by the Deep State. The Deep State does not want one of its own to be impeached, remember that to the monsters of DC, loyalty to the Deep State is number one. That is why Trump was an easy target for the Mob and Biden will get away with murder, as has Clinton.

    Only one thing can stop the Deep State, some sort of revolution. The French Revolution went full tilt when the army turned on the king at the Bastille. Will the Constitution die with a whimper by the Pentagon finally having enough. Or maybe the Deep State has headed off that possibility by creating the woke army.

    Not very hopeful. I am waiting for the revolution to start, by a seceding group of states or the creation of a winnable third party. Just like 1856.

    It is interesting. If the third party starts, it will be comprised of members of both parties, but mostly conservative GOP, think Tea Party. It will be focused on stopping the advance of the Progressive March to socialistic oligarchy, also known as the Mob.

      JohnAZ,

      Having grown up as an “Air Force brat” I am sufficiently knowledgable concerning the military mentality, and thus harbor a tiny hope that a cabal of patriotic “young colonels”, in the Pentagon or elsewhere, will form the nucleus of a revolt. Probably not until blackouts, supply line failure, hunger and regional gang rule are well-advanced.

      I am also familiar with how this has worked (not) over and over again in Latinoamerica, where the corruption and cruelty of military leaders eventually matches or surpasses that of the “legally elected” representatives they kick out. I use “quotation marks” in this context for “obvious reasons”.

      The military may (or may not) be said to have saved Chile, among others. I consider this an open question, although in retrospect General Pinochet comes across as intelligent, patriotic and reasonable. In any case, once the Marxists get a firm hold on power, and unquestioningly dominate the generals, then it is GAME OVER.

      General Suharto may be said to have saved Indonesia from a communist takeover in 1965; the subsequent bloodbath could have been equal or worse had the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI) seized power.

      Founding President Sukarno, his mind already fuddled by kidney failure (you poison yourself and judgment becomes demented) placed his money on the commies, after China fell to the CCP. Bad bet, in retrospect; he also recognized the danger from his own military, but got boxed in and hogtied by the clever Suharto.

      That the Smiling General, his family and cronies subsequently fucked up the Indonesian economy is also a familiar tale (in Africa as well as Asia and Latin America).

      Now the USA is emulating those disheveled third-world kleptocracies, just as Eisenhower (a man also familiar with the deficiencies of military thinking) predicted it would.

      When push comes to shove, no one has the chain of command, organization or the muscle to reset a bad situation as the military does. Their currently suppressed resentment of the woke indoctrination may be the spark the sets off a move to revolt.

      It certainly won’t come from the generals, as they are all sold out and deeply compromised.

    ” (If he tries to demur, there could be a new Speaker of the House in short order.)”

    This I really do doubt. It seems like these days, if someone gets shoed in by the deep state, they are there for the duration. If McCarthy wasn’t one of them, then he wouldn’t be where he is.

    Also, we have a big precedent now of those at the top simply refusing to comply and, as Beryl says, there is no forced compliance or repercussions, so why would they?

    I don’t really see this impeachment being pulled off. I will be happy to be wrong. Also, if it does, what will actually change? They will have their next line of generals and toadies all ready to go.

      Yeah, and it’s not just those at the top, either. I saw a lot of that attitude with democrat governors during Trump’s presidency. In my opinion, every democrat governor who allowed antifa and blm to riot in their states should be criminally charged. But it echoes what you say about those at the top facing no consequences for what they do. At least, not the human kind. There are the spiritual kind. Those are generally worse, because there’s no way out.

      McCarthy is one more WEF soldier-in-place. I intuit therein lie his reasons for his being so persistent in spite of the embarrassment of the many multiple votes during the speakership chase. For all that’s going down nationally and internationally, from his primacy of power as the Republican Speaker, McCarthy is certainly low-key, almost invisible.

    People might comply with another round of lockdowns and shots, but what people won’t comply with is really serious waves of unexplainable death from the shots, or really serious curtailments of freedom via digital currencies.

    At some point, any significant Great Reset strides become too obvious to hide from the public or get them to easily comply with,

    so there’s this constant limiter on any Great Reset plan where it must be either out in the open, or remain not really significant enough to matter enough to make a huge difference.

          Most people who oppose climate change hysteria understand that climate has, is, and will change as it has changed innumerable times in the planet’s history.

        And never forget that they told us that they foresaw us needing shots every few months. A legalized euthanasia and compliance program for a New Normal.

      • gustafson.robert.22 August 28, 2023 at 12:27 pm #

        If deaths ever reached a true “depopulation” level, the entire game would shift because truer answers to cause would be demanded by enoigh people.

        I did watch the roundtable.Yeadon is great and right on. We’re just not talking about depopulation, and never will be. They’re already toeing the limits of what they can get away with.

        • GreenAlba August 28, 2023 at 2:10 pm #

          “Yeadon is great and right on. We’re just not talking about depopulation, and never will be.”

          Yeadon literally said they will enslave us with digital ID/CBDCs, then kill 90-95% of us. What were you listening to? And, if Yeadon is wrong about depopulation, why do you think he’s great?

          I think the person who is ‘just not talking about depopulation, and never will be, is yourself’. You seem to find the notion too unpalatable to acknowledge. I find it unpalatable too, but I don’t know how refusing to acknowledge it does anything other than make it easier for them to accomplish. As Mike, said, if you get on that train, you’re going where it’s heading.

          • gustafson.robert.22 August 28, 2023 at 2:40 pm #

            Alba, he’s right on with his vaccine analysis. It was engineered for harm. Different batches had different lethality levels. There’s no other explanation… etc.

            He’s right that they desire depopulation and digital control.

            I just think there are huge barriers to their actual success.

            A 30% increase in excess deaths for working age people is huge statistically, but practically, in terms of total population numbers, it is still negligible.

            I’m skeptical there will be any mass sterilization from a few nanolipids. A slight down tick? Sure. Nothing revolutionary.

            You might remember I’m a huge proponent of the idea that the world IS currently extremely overpopulated in terms of longterm planetary carrying capacity. Although I would despise the method, I would have to admit that a successful vaccine-administered depopulation program would probably benefit our descendents in coming centuries, overall. I’d prefer intentional depopulation through birth control by an enlightened global populace, but what are the chances of that?

            But, objectively, I do not see a successful Great Reset vaccine depopulation program as a real possibility because elites can sense it would mean the end of their power structure. I believe they are essentially just playing around, toying with ideas rather unseriously and out of a kind of bewildered, last-gasp desparation.

            My motivation for promoting this perspective is to promote the idea that elites and their Reset are a diversion from the real event, which is ecological and civilizational collapse because of species overshoot and technological overreach. I think staying healthy requires keeping one’s focus on that process rather than being sidetracked by the narcissistic elites’ Great-Reset sideshow/cry for attention..

          • Paula D August 28, 2023 at 3:21 pm #

            Agree, Robert. People should look at reality, instead of predictions.

            A 40% increase in the death rate is nothing near 90% of the population dying.

            And the births still outnumber the deaths, by far, and the human population continues to increase on the planet.

          • Islander August 28, 2023 at 3:54 pm #

            Regarding stress on the enviornment, all deaths are not equal.

            A major reduction in First World populations would reduce the total planetary burden more than an equal number of deaths in the Third World.

            Except. Owing to the X effect (can’t recall name), all energy savings so far have been more than made up for by increased use. Thus, high-efficiency engines have not resulted in a net gain in conservation, because now people drive more miles. Etc.

            As Dr. Anas Alhajji pointed out in an excellent video linked at Our Finite World (Gail Tverberg), every migrant who crosses the border from a third world to a first world country automatically increases the total ecological footprint of that country because the migrant will immediately be adopting all or most of the resource-intensive life styles of the first world. Even if he doesn’t intend to do so. Because he becomes part of a wasteful infrastructure.

            Everyone should watch this eye-opening deep dive into energy realities—issues that I have not see discussed elsewhere:
            httpX://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop

            The whole carrying-capacity issue is IMO moot except for a limited regional outlook. In the past, many species have overshot the carrying capacity of their ecosystem. Usually a few individuals survive. Some migrate, etc. , or the whole group turns into something else, like dinosaurs into birds. Or tiny little horses into majestic steeds. This is happening all around us now. But other species on other continents do not therefor disappear.

            The whole system is too dynamic for human interventions to achieve much except create more interesting(and stupid and probably wholly unnecessary) problems for Mother Nature to solve.

            She bats last. She has plenty of time.

            It’s foolish humans with their short time horizon who are in a hurry.

            “But, objectively, I do not see a successful Great Reset vaccine depopulation program as a real possibility because elites can sense it would mean the end of their power structure.”

            Not if they aim to keep population to a level they have already outlined and keep those people in abject poverty–slaves to be experimented on and used as needed.

            This is more or less what they would appear to want based on various writings. Harari thinks most people should be living in pods playing video games.

            It does not seem you have delved too deep into this stuff. What they want to achieve is quite achievable. We have a window of time to push back and hinder and potentially stop them.

          • GreenAlba August 28, 2023 at 5:15 pm #

            Robert – a 40% increase in the death rate is what we have now. Once everyone is on digital ID whose functioning depends on being up to date with future ‘vaccine’ mandates, people will take what they’re told to take. Why do you think the 40% increase has anything to do with their future plans? The real stuff happens when people are forced to comply, on pain of not eating. The Pandemic Treaty and the changes to the International Health Regulations are key to that.

          • GreenAlba August 28, 2023 at 5:16 pm #

            Indeed GA,

            I have brought up locking people out of grocery stores many times, because it was a level of terrorization that even I was somewhat surprised at.

            A German state gave its grocery store owners “Hausrecht,” allowing them to turn away “unvaccinated.”

            In France, they had bouncers out in front of Carrefour and other stores, turning away families with children.

You only need to look at Gates’ face when he says the next ‘pandemic’ will get everyone’s attention. That’s not the face of a man interested in losing population at 2500/week excess deaths in the UK. That’s not worth getting out of bed for, for Bill.

            GA, that sounds right.

            The more efficient our systems become, the more we use, or the more we travel, etc., so there is no net gain.

            Again, I can see the results of energy conservation on, say, a household or even neighborhood level (if the latter is well organized and has effective feedback and data gathering).

            But when it comes to larger social entities, there are always flies in the ointment.

            Mainly, there are always business entities that actually want to make profit on every aspect of our energy use/conservation. We can never get ahead as long as humans reign.

      My recollection of the tea tax history wasn’t about the amount, it was less than the previous tea tax.

      It was the actual enforcement of the tax which created the tea-dumping event.

      • Edge Lord August 28, 2023 at 12:49 pm #

        It created a monopoly, which created the tea dumping, which created retaliatory laws that curtailed trade and meetings and allowed for enactment of eminent domain to quarter troops, and, and, and keep splitting hairs by all means

        • Not_GeorgeT August 28, 2023 at 9:32 pm #

          All those listed, my point is the enforcement rather than looking the other way.

          While looking at the list, the second attempt, after scrapping the first attempt ( the Articles of Confederation) became the new and improved compact between the states.

          One could make a case for a peaceful coup as the delegates were initially sent to fix the Articles. They changed their purpose, determing a fresh start was best.

          They included safeguards to keep all those listed and more from happening again.

      To wit: Feinstein re: Brennan’s lying about spying on Senators and staff, Clapper’s out and out lie—also under oath re: spying on US’ns—one of the significant straws bringing on Julian Assange’s current and likely permanent plight.
      The Fibbies, from the arrogant nobody Strzok to the always-unruffled Wray under public Congressional scrutiny share one overt commonality. Come to think about it, only Comey stands out for even barely approaching any signs of discomfiture under personal query. The too-tall perennial Boy Scout has some residual upbringing issues, is my take on that. Contrast that with the disdain of Representatives like Plaskett and DWS when dealing with anyone deemed opposition to the hierarchy like Taibbi-Schellenberger, RFK, Jr. They might appear distinct from Republicans on one level, but loyal subjects to Clinton Inc, etc they remain, because that’s from where the power and money flow forth. Dick Cheney used ‘the Snarl’ ploy to contain the press and public, even if it wasn’t acting, it served him well.

      Which leaves me with the distinct impression that they are all “made-men” and women when it comes to public accountability. The breach is pretty much set in stone. They live in their world alone, untroubled by the peasantry / pissantery. Our very real problem is we merely exist on the periphery of that world of Theirs.
      Our insignificance and superfluousness to the function of Their world of psycho and sociopathy is sadly the natural order of things when such perverted power goes too long unchecked. Leaving but one way to reverse the current and worsening lopsidedness.

          I haven’t had the heat on overnight for twenty-odd years. Well–except when extremely low temperatures were forecast for overnight. So, in some cases, I would leave the heat on overnight to keep the pipes from freezing.

          This wasn’t always entirely by choice. Much of the time, I’ve had a wood stove, and much of the time a propane fireplace. The thermostat for the propane fireplace was the remote, but the remote crapped out, and the company that sold me the setup went out of business. It was thus no longer possible to buy a new remote, and the fireplace was either on or it was off. So I turned it off overnight to avoid being baked.

          A wood stove will of course continue to heat the house through most of the night–though it can be mighty chilly in the morning. So you turn to “oven heat” until you’ve got the fire going again.

The sleeping bag I was using I still have today, it’s goosedown rated down to 30 below. It took some minutes to warm up after transferring to the big puffy mummy bag, but once there it’s a wonderful feeling to be heating up just fine but in heat you’ve made with your own body. Discomfort arises if you have to get up and outside to pee. I’d image a pee trip to be even more uncomfortable for female sub zero campers.

Please bring the materials in one manila envelope to my bunker door but do not approach too fast or too slow. Please leave materials propped against said bunker door at precisely a 37° angle from the perpendicular and back away at a slow pace. Perhaps I will consider them, in my time, which is precious.

            Gus,

            You often get emotional on this topic (as we can see), so let me explain the post to you:

            My point is that there is nothing in the public sphere that has more than one side presenting an argument. Because the discussion is controlled.

            Unless you or our new and very vocal poster can provide me with something.

            Have at it.

            @ Night Owl:

            No collapsing ecosystems around here; no desertification or forest degradation.

            If desertification and forest degradation are really occurring, where is the happening? Maybe I’m uninformed, by I know of no such place.

            Certainly there are environmental problems. Perhaps the most serious one here is soil degradation and environmental poisoning caused by destructive agricultural practices–caused by Big Ag, caused by government subsidies. This has nothing whatsoever to do with overpopulation or climate change. Frankly, these problems are caused, purely and simply, by government taking a wrecking ball to the land. They could be solved simply by stopping the destruction.

            Night Owl, it could possibly be nice to have actual in-depth back and forth on these issues on CFN, but you feign interest in back and forth—last thing you want is debate. You start by claiming, completely without any evidence presented at all, that whole swaths of thought and data are psyopped by the Resetters. And I remember your debate style, where you bring nothing to the table at all, while simultaneously self-pleasuring with constant announcements of victories you’re winning.

            Back and forth would ensue if you had any interest… or maybe capability. But you’re happy with your pet sources and youtubers, who, miraculously, alone have escaped the great Reset propaganda machine that has contaminated every other information source on Earth.

        Of late, in local media (print & electronic) we have been seeing headlines such as:

        ‘The New Global Boiling, A Survival Guide’

        ‘Say Goodbye to the Hottest Summer in 125,000 Years. Autumn Could be Worse’

        ‘Residents Seek Counseling to deal with Extreme Heat’

        The thing is, we haven’t had any extreme heat; we had 4 days all summer that reached the 90°F barrier. That last story I read in our local newspaper one recent perfect picture morning on my patio with a temp, so cool I had to put on a flannel shirt. Its obviously just lying bullsh#t propaganda… the question is, what’s its purpose?

        • Islander August 28, 2023 at 4:05 pm #

          I think this summer has actually been a bit cooler than previous summers.

          Granted I am lucky enough, heat-wise, to live on an island, but it is not out of the ordinary to have a few days north of 90F. This summer, aside from a couple of sticky weeks in the high eighties in July, we really haven’t had a very hot summer, in my perception.

          Per an online search:
          “As of August 12, the highest temperature recorded in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts in 2023 is 88 °F which happened on Jul 30.”
          \
          Another search:

          “Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts weather averages and records from 1946–2023 based on data made available by the NOAA. The highest temperature ever recorded in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts was 99 °F which occurred on August 27, 1948.”

          • Night Owl August 28, 2023 at 4:44 pm #

            This summer has been quite cool and rainy here.

            The UK has had a crap summer. I don’t mind, because I don’t like the heat, but I don’t like those endlessly weird skies that we have, which I don’t think are natural.

          • Anthea August 29, 2023 at 9:12 am #

            We’ve had a perfectly average summer here–nearly ideal: 80s and 90s for most of the summer, plus the perfectly normal heat-waves (up to 101°) in July and Augst. These lasted about a week, as usual, with one dry spell in July–a pretty regular thing. (Sometimes you have to water the garden.) Other than that, rainfall has been adequate.

            We’ve had two or three much hotter summers in the twenty-odd years that I’ve lived in this rural area. There was at least one where all the cornfields were destroyed by heat and drought. I think that was about 15 years ago. It was disturbing to drive for miles past hundreds of acres of dead, brown cornfields. I stayed with my daughter for a couple of the days with highs of 108°, that year, because her apartment had central air.

        • thirdcoastlegend August 28, 2023 at 4:42 pm #

          BRH-

          Here in western NY the entire summer has been sunny and mid-70s to mid-80s, which is nearly perfect.

          The local lake levels are on the high side.

          The past few days have seen fall-like dips to the 50s and 60s.

        The Dust Bowl was a collapsed ecosystem, the biggest natural disaster in the US history. It was man-made.

        Over-farming, over-developing natural areas for homes, dam-building, ruined habitats, this is heavily documented.

        Understanding that that occurs, has occurred and will keep occurring has nothing to do with the Great Reset.

        It has to do with conservation, which is actually at this juncture not related, because the Great Reset, Green-washing, the Green New Deal, etc. are hoaxes.

          Rulo:

          Traditional environmentalists and conservationists see ecosystems collapsing. They have noticed this for centuries, actually. The influences of humans’ activities on the environment.

          But they look to specific causes, which generally are fairly easy to understand, and don’t reach for the all-purpose buzzwords: CO2 and AGW, with are political/PR constructs.

          The very fact that scientific discussion of these ideas is suppressed if scientists’ conclusion deviate from the official narrative is a clear signal that they are being used more like advertising: to cause emotional reactions and hence weaken people’s ability to reason.

      Humans are the pollutant.
      This is a fact.

      They can’t say this, so they have to frame it as human activity.
      Now they can’t say humans wanting to eat seafood, live in a 3000 square foot home, driving 2 cars, and vacationing on the Mayan Riviera is impossible and destructive so they have to target a benign culprit.
      A plentiful gas.

      Well, everything humans do, including breathing, produces it.
      So you curtail their activities
      You curtail their quality of life
      You curtail their numbers.

      Of course you cannot tell people that their goal of a simple middle class lifestyle is untenable.
      You would get them in the streets.
      Particularly when the overlords have multiple homes, yachts, planes, exotic automobiles, refined palates that prefer to consume increasing rare meats.

      So you tell them that the world is melting and it’s their fault. We are “all” going to have to “reduce” our “impact”.

            Of course, throughout mankind’s history, “I was just following orders” is the common refrain of the people who facilitated genocide. Surely you know that, right?

            The police officer that barricaded those hundreds of American citizens for their incineration on 8/8 literally said, claims an eye-witness, “I am just following orders.”

            Just like all the other genocides, Edgy. Exactly the same.

            ***
            Do you really believe that brush fires got to 1,300F, Edgy? That’s what it takes to melt aluminum. There was melted aluminum all over Lahaina. I have seen it on the ground. There is proof. Tons of proof.

            Brush fires burn at about 500F, Edgy. Do you believe in science? If so, the melted aluminum in Lahaina needs explanation while brush fires and incompetence won’t suffice.

            ***
            Speaking of proof, Edgy, you claimed many days ago that incompetence was the cause of hundreds of Americans being held to their incineration on Front Street and that that has been “proven.” I asked for this “proof” but you simply ignored my request.

            Don’t tell me my point, Edgy. How’s about I speak for me and you speak for you? FYI – That’s how adults discuss things.

            Last night, I saw footage of two cars in Lahaina Luna that had melted aluminum (1,300F) that ran on the ground before transforming back to its normal state (solid). They were in a scorched green area surrounded by unharmed buildings. A brush fire, two non-EV cars and melted aluminum. Science.

            If I see it again, I will post a link for your consideration.

            ***
            Edgy, you claimed several days ago that incompetence was “proven” in these hundreds or thousands of incinerations. I have repeatedly asked you for this “proof” yet you continue to ignore this valid request to validate what you claim here on CFN and, instead, launch into lame ad homs, child.

            Do you have “proof” while nobody else does … or are you (obviously) completely full of shit?

          Well, the irony here is that the climate alarmists pronounce the cause of the fires as “man” to be a very long causal chain of effett that supposedly starts with “man” living on planet eartly.

          “Man” definitely does *not* mean a guy setting a fire, nor a guy too stupid to know how to run an electric grid, nor how to put out a fire before it becomes a “wildfire.”

            The point is that even if there is a preponderance of evidence that said fires were ignited by men, in a direct purposeful action: to create a large destructive fire, it’s not the criminal action that matters, or is even man-made, it’s the “underlying conditions” that allow that action to become a sweeping destructive firestorm.

            Brame made a lot of sense to me, though. Trees don’t burn from the inside out in normal fires. Roots that normally shoot after normal fires are completely dead.

        Well, they have a Final Solution to the Climate Change dilemma, EL. You are correct, when you get right down to it, the problem is human beings; and a goodly number of them must be eliminated. Population experts under the auspices of the UN, the WEF, the IMF & a half dozen other international globalist organizations have drawn up plans, and they don’t include most of us living happily ever after. 5 billion human beings need to go if we’re going to bring that global temp. down 1.5°C by 2050. They’re not trying to hide their intentions; they give TED talks on the subject and appear on plenty of youtube video.

        “We’d rather have reductions in world population be voluntary, not coerced. But coercion might be necessary.”

        One interesting facet I gleaned while listening to a few of these population reduction talks is that they never identify overpopulated areas of the world, like central Africa or S Asia, that need to be dealt with. Instead they point to the ‘Global North’, which seems almost like a code word for ‘Whitey.’

          Correct.
          Because there are too many of us living too high off the hog.
          Now, if we’d consider life in a dirt floor corrugated steel roofed shack, like the denizens of say Mumbai, São Paulo, or Lagos, perhaps they’d allow us to persist.
          But those people are not competing with them for the finer things.
          They know the poor aspire to a middle class lifestyle. The quintessential “American Dream”: a home, a car, fast casual dinners on weekends, annual trips to Wally World.
          The goal is to make the current middle class standard less of a benchmark. Less of a goal. Less all around.
          Rare.
          Soon, the destitute will perceive middle class as living in an apartment tower. Having a car rental subscription, enjoying high quality bug meal foodstuffs. Vacations every 5 years, your air-mile allotment.

    Conditional. Conditionality. “If.”

    The near-plangent aura that surrounds the ever-increasing absurdities of the United States’ federal system, the breaking down of justices’ machinery, the hyper-venality of our politics and most things military, while hovering over it all like an ill wind, our failing-in-real-time so-called economic system. It’s a problem. For worldwide civilization.

    Here at home we’re daunted and diminished, battered and bereaved, sullied by the cancerous juggernaut that dominates all, yet we cling with slipping fingers to our notional memories of ‘Fortress America’ as an inviolable and sacred security. But it’s wearing thin, thin, thin.

    The psychology of our enduring faith in corrupted institutions, a hard-inculcated habitual exercise, compels us to crave for the succor they once offered, but in reality it is an epic tragedy of both personal and collective unfolding as the mask comes off.
    And as the masks come back on. The irony is…

          You see clearly. You even care about your race – very rare in Christians (so called).

          Christ said, My Kingdom is not of this world. Real Christians believed him and never bothered to learn much about this World as it is. Thus other peoples could easily destroy them. So a new breed arose, that did care and thus a new chapter in Western Civilization was opened.

          That turn your other cheek stuff is only for monks and nuns. Many of the new Christians are fake, needless to say. On the other hand, Christ did speak of Wisdom. And Paul of Counsels of Perfection. You have to defend yourself, your possessions, your family, community, and nation. Surely Christ knew this. Surely the Holy Spirit imparted it to the Church Fathers.

          In any case, only Christ bearers can make Capitalism or Socialism work in a truly humane fashion. Or communalism. Or hunter-gathering.

          Those who are too good for this ugly world must renounce it – and pray for those that protect and provide for them. The Amish and traditional Mennonites provide for themselves but depend on the State for protection. The good ones pray for their benefactors.

          Turn the other cheek types are poison in politics and economics. Life is war! We live in a fallen world after all.

People sneer at intellectual egg-heads, but in the end, they can change the culture, and that changes the politics. There is pushback, but it will be the work of generations to change the culture, if some leaders can even be found to start that work.

          I do believe that Woodrow Wilson was responsible for what you describe.

          He was elected to “keep us out of war.” Instead he listened the blandishments of both his “brain,” Colonel House, and the British. They did a deal to get the US into the war and also on board for the Balfour Declaration and the League of Nations (although the latter was a hard sell after the war, and never was accepted by the US Congress).

          Millions of immigrants were admitted who had their own agendas and soon had taken over the political system.

          The USA was never able to go back to the isolationism that most of its citizens preferred before the Great War.

            What I said.

            Wilson won the presidency over Roosevelt with a policy of neutrality and, specifically, in 1916, with the slogan–actually, a popular song— “He kept us out of war.”

            Another slogan of Wilson’s was “America First.”

I also congratulated him for sucking up to Kevin McCarthy who controls campaign money.

Pittsburgh and Philadelphia now control the outcome of our elections. I’m sure our Democratic Governor will figure a way to register all of our new illegals via the State Driver License Centers.
    In plain words, people better get off their ass and start raising hell. America is failing!

    “All Aboard the Impeachment Express”

    History from decades ago warns that one needs to be damned careful about what kind of Train they board. The Impeachment Train might look good to some, but it’s opening yet another dark chapter in the Failing Experiment of America.

    Impeachment is being turned into just a normal day at the office in the toolbox of our inept and clueless (but VERY well paid) Politicians. Impeachment used to be a serious and ‘last resort’ kind of thing… but now is being normalized as a daily weapon for one side to use against The Others.

    These guys have so much hate for each other (and the American People while they’re at it) that it’s no wonder nothing good is ever accomplished by these Titled Leeches. They spend all of their hours plotting against the ‘Other Side’… finding additional ways to get even richer… and launching new ways to complicate and ruin the lives of regular Americans.

    Yet, they still have the gall to refer to Themselves as… ‘The Honorable’. Sure. Honor — in a pig’s eye.

    Look, any sane person knows that both Parties suck. And the leaders of both parties have so much heavy baggage to carry around that they need to bring multiple 747s out of retirement just to move all that crap around. And while the followers of both Parties want to believe that their Leader is some kind of savior of the Nation… that is more wish-fantasy-desire than anything grounded in sane reality. Neither side is going to do a damn thing to help the lives of We the People.

    And the one man who just might make moves in that positive direction is facing a futile effort to get the backing of his Party and get a bit of traction in Corporate Media which is hell-bent on slandering him and dragging his name through the mud. (No, he ain’t perfect. But he’s getting more things right than wrong).

    “An awful lot of rumors are pinging around lately about a new Covid-19 operation to be sprung on the public any day, with the usual kit of masks, lockdowns, and mandatory vaccinations. Do you really think Americans will comply with another round of this malicious nonsense?”

    The Covid Con was skillfully turned in a Great Big (Woke) Cult. An entire religion, actually. A faith with holey (yes, holey) saints like Doctor Death aka ‘The Science!’… a gospel of rigid obedience and Faux-Science worship… sacraments of taking the endless Death Injections… and like most any religion – the demonization of all those who do not believe as they do and who do not conform to such mental derangement.

    Don’t ever think that Our World is no longer ‘religious’. In many ways, it has NEVER been more religious. Unfortunately, that religion is a doctrine of lies and atrocious physical harm being injected into our arms and our minds by demons that hide inside our World’s new-found ‘Faith’.

    Keep the Faith, right? “People all over the World… Join Hands… Join the Woke Train.. Woke Train!”… the old song might be re-written today by the Covid Cultsters.

        Jarek: “Free at last. Free at last. Thank God Almighty we free at last…”

        History has fully demonstrated that some people absolutely refuse to ever ‘Be Free’. Their belief in ‘Not Being Free’ is now so embedded and intertwined with their personal (and larger racial) identity that they would have no identity at all if they accepted freedom.

        Not being ‘free’… being ‘aggrieved’ all the time… feeling you are ‘oppressed’ has been turned into a kind of World Currency for billions of people. Don’t worry about the coming World Digital Currency. ‘Feeling Oppressed’ has been a functioning World Currency for some time now.

        To the clear… people and races HAVE BEEN AND ARE oppressed and suffered indignities over the Ages (today, this now fully includes ‘People Of Non-Color). No one needs to be further convinced of that. But at some point, you’ve got to get past that and find a new identity that does require an ‘Oppressed’ and ‘An Oppressor’. That is, you have to move on to this kind of liberating understanding if you want to grow as a human being and become a greater person than you were before.

        No one gets anywhere living stuck in the past. Everyone’s done wrongs. Everyone has been oppressed in some (or many) ways in their lives. We as a human race have to finally get passed all that dead weight on our backs (that we ourselves put there!) or we will never be a life form other than one that worships being the worst qualities in our nature. Forever. Stuck in the mud of endless blame and ginned-up feelings of guilt.

          Exactly. And doubly so when the police barricaded hundreds or thousands to their incineration deaths that included melted aluminum everywhere. Note: Aluminum melts at 1,220F but requires temperatures even hotter than that (1,300F) to run liquid like it did.

            Regardless, Gus, the Lahaina brush fire melted aluminum to a liquid that ran on the ground. That requires 1,300F.

            Lahaina was no simple brush fire that melted aluminum but left asphalt pristine because that is impossible.

            ***
            Edgy, why don’t you simply share the fact that hundreds or thousands were incinerated by “proven” incompetence? Your proof could alleviate a lot of uncertainty.

          • stelmosfire August 28, 2023 at 6:11 pm #

            Lahaina did not burn in a brush fire. Perhaps initiated by one but with those winds once the fire got into town with that fuel load it became an unstoppable firestorm. Firebrands were flying and starting fires at long distances. I wasn’t there but it must have been unbelievably intense. Do they use asphalt shingles in Hawaii? You might as well cover the roof with diesel once that shit gets going. A simple candle burns at 1800 degrees and alloy rims melt all the time in an intense car fire. I can light steel on fire with a match. Just hold a match to some fine steel wool. It will light right up. I’d like Zonkers to try a little experiment. Turn your oven to 400 degrees. Open the door and put your hand in. You can hold it in there for a while no problem. Now grab the rack. How’d that feel? That’s why wood posts burn where the nails are, whackadoodle.

            Just asking.

          • Dr Zonk August 28, 2023 at 6:46 pm #

            Fair enough, StEF but these questions remain:

            1) If this firestorm was so incredibly hot, why is the asphalt still pristine (complete with unharmed embedded plastic reflectors)?

            2) Why did plastic with metal melt while flimsy plastic without remain unharmed?

            3) Why did police officials barricade hundreds or thousands to their incineration?

            4) Why did the heat and embers not ignite the hotel and the rich people’s nice houses?

            Well here’s an old picture 14 years ago in Australia. Took about 20 seconds to find one. Anything look familiar? Burned cars, melted wheels, trees that still have leaves, probably Eucalyptus. The most flammable tree in the world according to the tree trimmer in the video which was linked to here. When did “They” start with the death rays anyway?

            httpx://www.abc.net.au/news/2009-02-09/craig-kidd-looks-at-the-melted-metal-of-alloy/286660

            All trees are basically dead inside. The only living part of the trunk is the outside where the bark grows and the water is transported. I’ve got knotholes from lost branches on trees in my yard that are squirrel hotels. The trees are partially hollow inside but look perfectly healthy because they are. 100 ft tall and fully leafed out. Metal is the best heat conductor in the world, air perhaps the worst. Those posts looked like they were hit with water while they were burning. They talk about no black stuff after the fire. Black is what you get when the fire is stopped before it’s done. I burn a lot of wood and at the end I have nothing but gray ash.

            Jarek, why did the Uvalde police do nothing?
            On scene and hearing the children getting executing.

            Well, Uvalde is very poor, and the people there are fairly poor, and their education and intelligence levels are very poor.

            Now you have rather unintelligent people lead by unintelligent leaders (the Uvalde chief was previous to the incident elected to a political position) doing unintelligent things.
            By our standards.

            The only people who survived reacted off of instinct. A very low form of intelligence. Crucial, but low. Mothers running in and grabbing their kids. A father (a CBP officer not from there) grabbing his gun and executing the killer.
            In Lahaina, those who trusted their instinct over the decisions derived from low intelligence survived.

            An average intelligent person’s gut is more intelligent than stupid people making stupid decisions

            “Not generally pitch black, though?”

            I’m not sure what you mean. Of course they would be black after they were burned on the inside.

            1. If this firestorm was so incredibly hot, why is the asphalt still pristine (complete with unharmed embedded plastic reflectors)?

            Rule no. 1 “Stay low in a fire.” You can’t get much lower than embedded in the ground. also “Thermal Mass”. I’m sure there’s plenty of damaged asphalt where the cars melted down.

            2. I don’t have a clue what your talking about.

            3. Just following orders. The whole scene was an out of control Clusterfuck. I’ve been there at big fires and this one was a Cluster of epic proportions. Chaos rules. I can’t imagine a 75-80 wind driven fire in closely built wood framed houses.

            4. Educate yourself on construction types. I’d bet most homes burned were all type 5’s

            httpx://www.bigrentz.com/blog/building-construction-types

            Type 1: Fire-resistive: High-rise buildings made of concrete and protected steel
            Type 2: Non-combustible: Newer buildings with tilt-slab or reinforced masonry walls and a metal roof
            Type 3: Ordinary: New or old buildings with non-combustible walls but a wood-framed roof
            Type 4: Heavy Timber: Older buildings made from thick lumber
            Type 5: Wood-framed: Modern buildings with combustible framing and roofs

          • Jarek August 28, 2023 at 8:49 pm #

            I admit individual officers may have just been following orders, go left, then north, etc – not knowing they were creating a traffic jam on the blocked Front St.

            “I’m not sure what you mean. Of course they would be black after they were burned on the inside.”

            I meant how come there were trees burned black in the inside but not burned on the outside. There’s a cross section in the film of a tree that’s burned black only in the middle. Brame said all the trees were dead, but not externally burned, and the soil was sterile and remained sterile.

            I think the contention is that the interior of the tree will burn because it is dead/dry. Whereas the outside—the xylem and phloem, I seem to recall—contain water and hence would be less flammable.

            But I cannot picture how fire can enter the core of a tree and burn up, without oxygen.

            Hosing down roofs?

            You do know they don’t absorb water right? They do exactly the opposite. Now a roof with some surface water may resist a small ember, but be serious. Think.

            Have you ever watered a sidewalk or deck in heat and wind? It dissipates in an instant. Pointless.

            A garden hose is not going to stop a wind fueled blaze.

            I haven’t gone back to the video to check, but I seem to remember the guy saying it was the trees that retain most water (like willows) that burned the worst, which sounds counterintuitive.

            “This is elementary level”

            Uh, firefighters do it around here (the “garden hose” is your own mental image).

            My question was not directed toward you, Mr. Arrogant.

          • Islander August 29, 2023 at 8:05 am #

            Further explanation for Mr. Arrogant of the reason for wetting down a roof to prevent spread of fire:

            “Fire from one building can cause a fire in another building even though the fire is not touching the building or very close by. This is due to radiation (a method of heat transfer) from the fire. Radiation can cause the temperature of a combustible material to raise. If the exposed surface reaches the autoignition temperature of the object, the object can erupt into flames. By applying water to the exposed surface, the material will not reach its autoignition temperature.”

            Furthermore, the fire will lose a lot of heat/energy by turning the water to steam.

            I welcome further feedback on this subject from an actual firefighter.

          • stelmosfire August 29, 2023 at 9:05 am #

            Islander, Firebrands are anything flaming that’s flying through the air pushed by the wind or by convection currents created by the fire/fires themselves. Imagine an asphalt roof in flames with 80-90 mph winds. Flaming shingles ripped off and carried away like blobs of burning tar sticking to and igniting anything they landed on. Think flaming arrows from the middle ages.

            FF’s maybe could have stopped it, doubtful without much manpower and equipment. The wind was the thing. Many FF’s have been trapped and killed by fast moving wildfires. We had a fire on a clear cold March night after a fresh Noreaster moved through. Apartment complex, plywood siding, “only” 20-30 mph west wind. It was a miracle we held it to one 12 unit building. Most everybody thought we’d lose the whole complex. The roofs were all covered in snow. That probably saved all the exposures.

            Firebreaks, yea maybe dynamite. It’s been used before. No way in a wooden town with that wind.

            FF response? I don’t have a clue about the cities resources or response.

            Of course seawater can be used. Any engine could have drafted water from the sea and relay pumped it to wherever it was needed but this fire was out of control minutes after it got into town. It takes time and man/womanpower ( woke term haha) to drag and lay lines all over the place. Time they didn’t have.

            “Is cement siding non-combustible?” yes, non-combustible. I actually use some cement siding around my half-assed wood burning maple sugar set-up to block air leaks in the fire box. Mine are cement/asbestos the new ones are cement/fiberglass so I would think they would also not burn. I have cement/asbestos on my house. Good stuff. Holds paint forever. I painted over 30 years ago and the stuff does not peel or bubble. The asbestos is locked in so no problem.Just don’t cut/grind/sand it.

      • Dr Zonk August 28, 2023 at 4:42 pm #

        Right. We gravitate to mass murder … and you use that as some bizarre “proof” that all those dead weren’t mass-murdered (like that makes any sense at all!).

        You refuse to consider facts, evidence and eyewitness testimony. You psychologically shut reality out, Edgy, and I believe that I know why:

        I believe that your brain protects itself from reality. If you ever realized that, yes, American citizens were purposefully incinerated in an American town by American officials then your psyche would rupture beyond repair. So you guffaw and ad hom and deny reality.

          First time around, 18.9 million adult Brits (according to Professor Norman Fenton’s calculations from ONS data) never even got a first jab. I don’t know what proportion of the total population are over 18, but that’s not a bad chunk of people who never caved. And lots more have woken up since then. So I think it will be more nuanced, with at least 50% of adults not going near another vaxx, perhaps more.

          Maybe that’s wishful thinking – I don’t know. I agree that from my own family, friends and acquaintances, I’d be less optimistic, but they’re all Guardian readers and I really think they’ll be the last to wake up. Most people aren’t Guardian readers. 🙂

    I don’t, either.

    No , it got re – named / re – packaged.

    And since in the opening stages it was primarily targeted at the Black community , they had 20 years of the frog in the pot of slowly boiling water.

    Indeed , it took Blacks themselves 50 years to figure out it was the same scheme re – packaged.

    By that time , just about everyone who was 20 or 30 years old in 1919 is dead ,

    and the vast majority still breathing remember all of this as normal , traditional.

    ” The New Normal ” has already happened.

    ” Perhaps instead of indulging their defeatism here, CFN commenters could better spend their time by contacting their elected representatives ”

    — Islander

    I don’t have any elected representatives.

    Anyway , I think I’m doing my bit trying to point out to people that Prohibition is bullshit.

    It’s an important issue I think.

    It seems to me only a small step from disarming bootleggers to disarming everybody.

    It seems to me only a small step from legitimizing the use of force against people because what they are doing you theorize is harmful ,
    to no Vax , no food.

    And many other things.

    Meanwhile , though I do NOT think you can prove the streets were safer in 1919 ,

    you ALSO CANNOT prove they are any safer than they were in 1919.

      Correction ; no small step. It is the same thing.

      It sure looks to me like , the use of force is legitimate against people you theorize are doing something harmful , is precisely the narrative used by the no vax / no food crowd.

    In my more optimistic moments, I like to believe that we may be on the cusp of something much more significant than the impeachment express–the first chaotic stirrings of a genuine, and at this point non-manipulated, collective resistance to what passes for our managerial status-quo.

    But the real emergence of such organic resistance may depend on our capacity to function as outlaws with the highest degree of self-restraint.

    One key issue becomes whether Donald Trump himself (now an officially designated outlaw) has acquired the wisdom to overcome his nihilistic egoism and begin to articulate a politics of limits–laying the foundation, through example, for a dramatically different type of authority in this country.

    A second key issue is whether we, as average citizens, still believe in ourselves as history-making beings capable of collective action.

    • Edge Lord August 28, 2023 at 8:05 pm #

      I find it very manipulative, cynical, and disingenuous how the extremist left is empowering black American prosecutors, judges, and district attorneys to lead this prosecution of Trump.
      By making it so obvious their thing, their mission for justice, is to make it racial. Not against Trump, but against his prosecution.
      It is nauseatingly cynical

    Do you remember that Freudian book “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”? The rich, secretive Oligarch, Willy Wonka, was giving out golden tickets to the little kids to visit his secretive, mysterious Chocolate Factory. That story is really about pedaphilia, right?

            I just ordered The Shiva Sutras. We can consider them a more advanced version of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, much like Kalergi’s, “Practical Idealism” is to the Protocols.

            The Protocols don’t even mention race per se, just Us and them. But race is the secret to undermining the West. And Kalergi focuses on this chink in our armor. We think that only ideas matter! Too “good” to focus on ourselves as biological entities, and as a sub-species – even as everyone else is doing so. People want Western Civilization without Whites and the Kingdom of Heaven without God right here on Earth.

            I remember being shocked by one of Roald Dahl’s more adult-oriented works that my elementary school library somehow had on the shelf.

          • Islander August 29, 2023 at 2:58 pm #

            Dahl definitely had a dark side.

            Recently there was an article about him in the London Review of Books It appears to be not behind a paywall, after to do the “manage cookies” business ( I reject all).

            httpX://www.lrb.co.uk/the-paper/v44/n24/colin-burrow/the-comeuppance-button

            Burrow discussed the fact that there is a push on to Bowdlerize Dahl’s works to make them less unsettling to the woke snowflakes.

            Which, in light of the kinds of books that the woke are putting on school libraries shelves, seems totally absurd to me (Bowdlerizing good writers is absurd anyhow; it’s just another layer of absurdness and hypocrisy).

    ” If humans can manage to colonize Mars, maybe by 2171, something similar to your story could happen there, although a new species like that makes 2171 easily too early, unless by genetic engineering. Is that part of it? ”

    — Zazelle

    I tend to think 2171 is a bit early myself.

    On the other hand , in the book / movie , ” Never Let Me Go ” cloning is perfected in the late 1950’s – early 1960’s , and the story is set in the 1970’s – 1980’s and focuses on some non – person clones and their brief and seemingly pointless lives . Brief lives due to the harvesting of their organs.

    Setting the story in a past that has already not happened seems to do it no harm.

    As likewise George Orwells 1984 is 30 years past now.

    I’m not into Numerology , indeed I know nothing of it but the name.

    But I like numbers that end in one.

    And the year 1971 has great importance to me personally , but for reasons that would still take a wall of text , and you probably still wouldn’t fathom the importance , and not because you are stupid or anything.

    So ; 2171 is our year.

    Coincidentally , ” Never Let Me Go ” was my working title .

    Because while our Cassie is fully aware that the Smoking Bees could kill her at any time , she has lived her whole conscious life among them , and only wants to be one of them and accepted by them.

    But this guy I previously never heard of , Kazou Ishiguro , beat me to the title.

    ” genetic engineering. Is that part of it? ”

    Yes .

    But our narrator is Cassie , a teenage girl .

    The Smoking Bees don’t like to emphasize their human origins , but what comes through in the history that the Smoking Bees present is that humans wanted to create a human that was more docile and controllable.

    The old power and control thing.

    But they created instead a new species that was more cohesive , like Bees , and concerned with looking out for number one — their own species.

    All Cassie knows is that there is just one sex , and three – to – five year olds periodically show up at the doorstep of her commune to replace those who have died off.

    These little ones originate from the communes of the Ouslaufah .

    Cassie isn’t allowed any further than the front gate of an Ouslafah commune.

    And the girls of the Ouslaufah are the ones who really scare her or intimidate her.

    As I said before , Cassie is a kind of pet , and treated like a pet.

    But when she occasionally runs into Ouslaufah , those girls look at her with menace / malice.

    Ouslaufah wear pink and white uniforms , and are alternatively called Flamingoes .

    As to their fashion sense in general , imagine Soviet Army uniforms of the 1970’s , but with pleated miniskirts .

    Though the primary headgear for infantry Communes in her part of the world resembles the embroidered Mitre caps of grenadiers of the 18th Century.

    Anyway , the only other possible reference to genetic engineering is that in a large room of the administrative offices of her commune the ceiling is covered with about a hundred stuffed Ivory Billed Woodpeckers .

    A species already extinct or near extinct in the 20th Century.

    As I said they are very cohesive , they have no war , no crime , no prisons or police.

    On the other hand , they have no concept of privacy. None.

    And their religious services and holidays are decidedly militaristic.

    As I said , their holidays are war games.

    Cassie’s best friend , or handler , and herself , crew an anti – tank gun on holidays.

    This anti – tank gun ;

    youtube.com/watch?v=GBjFwBKQpog

    Like the guy says , a weapon pretty much obsolete by 1941.

    But then the standard infantry weapon is a Snaphaunce , like this ;

    youtube.com/watch?v=iPIwF7GkfG8

    Rather unreal.

    Presumably when the humans were a problem they were using more practical weapons.

    But that is not unheard of.

    Japan made contact with Europeans around 1540 , and in the ensueing Japanese Civil War adopted fire arms in a big way.

    By 1601 and the end of the civil war , the Japanese were further along in fire arms technology than the europeans.

    After the civil war , though , Japan isolated itself from the world , and Japan was not particularly threatened by the outside world.

    So by the time Matthew Perry sailed into Tokyo harbor in 1850 ( ? )

    the Japanese were back to using the spears , bows , and swords that the Samurai preferred.

    So , yeah , militaristic , but very much a religious service or a holiday.

He knew there was no way they would they wouldn’t use his work and as a flawed member of the soon to be obsolete species, he killed himself.

      KA, it was the Portugese who introduced guns to Japan, in 1545 I believe. They traded 3 arbequeses (muskets most likely made by the Germans) to the Japanese, who used them as a template to build an entire national firearms industry.

      I find it pretty amazing that the Portugese made it all the way to Japan by the 1540s (and as I mentioned, along with Japanese soldiers and the Spanish Navy, invaded Cambodia in 1593 lol)

    • Jarek August 28, 2023 at 9:35 pm #

      Soon after Portugal brought in a huge number of Black slaves – the only country in Europe to do so. It became ten percent Black! Slavery ended and the Blacks disappeared into the population – as did Portugal’s Empire and greatness.

        We don’t need empires anymore. We don’t need “greatness”. We’ll never be “great again”, instead we’ll be average. If being average isn’t good enough, well, tough shit! Average republics fail at around 250 years old, we’re about there. People like you and others in here will argue that we’re above average and must stay that way forever. That’s a delusion.

        It’s the same sort of delusion suffered by so many males are upset and depressed about their penises being of average length. Average seems to be around 5.5 inches according to the most reliable studies out there. It never occurs to all these males suffering from anxiety about just being an average guy – that the vagina averages around 4 inches in depth. An average woman might not like a 7 inch penis banging away on her cervix and causing other discomforts. But the average guy insists that if his isn’t at least 7 inches like on the porn sites he watches – something is wrong! Being average just ain’t gonna cut it with the ladies. And for the USA to just exist as an ordinary, average, minding my own business sort of country that doesn’t attack its neighbors?

        Nope! Can’t have that! We’re not about to put up with having average sized 5 inch dicks. And we’re not about to be an average country that has no empire. Only empires can have the big dicks and get the right to strut around on the world stage displaying for everyone to see. The rest of the average nations just need to lower their eyes and shut up – the big dick’s in town and there is nothing to be done about it.

        It’s evolution, if with the usual attempts– intellectually or otherwise– to socially (and/or otherwise) engineer or guide it.

        Over time, however, I’m unsure the engineering parts of it matter all that much– assuming they gain any traction– such as where nature has the final say and the human-engineered bits, where they’re unfit, get filtered out.

        It’s perhaps like some hypothetical dystopian collapse of a society that leaves all its dog breeds to finally breed of their own volition among each other. Over time, lots of attributes get filtered out until the breeds have all been re-wilded, with an appearance to match. I can think of some breeds that might not make it, can you?

        ‘White’– let’s accept the term at face-value for the sake of argument here– happened some time ago because nature ‘decided’ upon it within certain sets of contexts (it was ‘fit’ for its time and place) that are outside of current contexts that will continue to drift further afield as time goes on, thus changing what is ‘fit’.

        Nature, rather than, say, some anons online, has the best and final say on what is and will be fit, going forward.

      KA, I recall a viable plan, done in stages, to make the planet Mars inhabitable with an atmosphere developed in stages to mirror Earth.

      This was around 1990. 2171 doesn’t seem out of the question. What I think is more a standout is the plans appear stalled for the past 30+ years.

      For the past 30+ years I’ve wondered why we as a species are not acting on those ideas.

      Is the collective self-interest not yet advanced to the point of the inhabitants seeing this long view as viable?

      I recall a recounting of a church group in England planting an oak tree grove. They had no particular need for the oak trees in their present time.

      Advance the time line 400 years, the descendants of the planting group needed to build a new church building to replace the now well-worn one, …and there was this 400 year old well-developed oak grove just waiting to meet their need.

          I hear what you are saying, Paula, but to me, I feel a spiritual need for us to explore the universe. As someone said (Robert Heinlein or somebody of that caliber), we shouldn’t put all our eggs in one planet. Financially, there’s no near timeline on making money out of this endeavor, but compared to the Earth’s total resources, such a project would relatively take but a pittance of them.

      There is not a shred of historical evidence supporting this claim about Catherine doing it with a horse. Well, to make sure about this, I spent a bit of time googling this topic. First I’d heard about this particular bit of mythology happened long ago in college when I’d been taking some classes in Russian. And it’s such a silly claim to make. Horses are very powerful and potentially dangerous animals. A woman attempting such a thing is asking for a trip to the ER – or even the graveyard.

      • Islander August 29, 2023 at 7:07 pm #

        Catherine was very powerful, very attractive, very enlightened (she spoke multiple languages and had a correspondence with Voltaire).

        She had a succession of lovers—not all that many—each of which was more or less her “favorite” who also supported her politically and at court.

        Then she met Potemkin. He was Catherine’s most important political and romantic partner.

        During her reign Russia drove the Golden Horde out of the Ukraine (Mala Rossiya) and the Crimea for once and for all and incorporated both lands in Russia. Catherine built the city of Sebastopol to be a headquarters for the Russian navy.

        In 1787 Catherine made a six-month tour of the incorporated lands, traditionally called the Taurida Voyage.

    CDC Now Refusing New COVID Vaccine Adverse Event Reports in Its V-Safe Program
    BrownStone Institute. August 24, 2023

    By David Gortler
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) V-safe website quietly stopped collecting adverse event reports with no reason or explanation. The V-safe website simply states: “Thank you for your participation. Data collection for COVID-19 vaccines concluded on June 30, 2023.” If you go there today, V-safe directs users to the FDA’s VAERS website for adverse event reporting, even though officials continually derided VAERS as “passive” and “unverified.”

    VAERS and V-safe are mutually exclusive safety collection databases operated by the FDA and CDC, respectively. VAERS is an older way of collecting safety data where one can fill out a form online, or manually, or by calling a toll-free number, whereas V-safe is a device “app” which requires online registration. Both VAERS and V-safe collect personal information, lot numbers, dates and associated information, but V-safe was an active collection system geared towards a younger app-using demographic.

    Here is the last report before deletion.

    Does this mean that the CDC believes that the mRNA Covid-19 injections are so safe, there is no need to monitor adverse event reports any longer? What is the argument against continued monitoring, especially since the V-safe website was already up and paid for?

    While CDC’s V-safe was stealthily and abruptly turned off, refusing to accept new safety reports, to this very day the CDC continues to urge everyone ages 6 months and older to stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.

    As a drug safety expert, I personally can’t cite another example of any agency or manufacturer halting collection of safety data. It seems even worse because mRNA technology is relatively new with long-term toxicity manifestations being unknown. On top of this, both manufacturers and the FDA refuse to share the list of ingredients, such as lipid nanoparticles, which could affect individuals differently and take a long time to manifest clinically.

    Safety Data Collection Should Never Stop

    Now, contrast that with the fact that the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) will still accept a safety report for a 30-year-old Ford Bronco II. Indeed, this is an oddly specific example, but only because I drove this exact vehicle as a family hand-me-down as a student, through my residency, fellowship, for my tenure as a Yale professor on the mean streets of New Haven and even during my years at the FDA as a medical officer /senior medical analyst.

    Like mRNA shots, Bronco IIs are still available on the market and people are still using them up to this very day. My Bronco became an intermittent topic of conversation with friends and FDA colleagues. One day, I was informed by a patrolling security guard at the FDA that it was the oldest car on campus.

    I didn’t know much about cars (or mRNA technology) back then, but when a fellow FDA-er informed me that my Bronco II had noteworthy safety problems and that the NHTSA still had their eye on this vehicle (rollover accidents were more common and more fatal) I addressed the problem: I got rid of the reliable relic, even though I really liked it.

    NHTSA is still accepting safety reports on things like my 30-year-old Ford Bronco II, but the CDC isn’t accepting new safety reports on 2-year old novel mRNA vaccines.

    CDC No longer accepting safety reports despite rapidly increasing safety findings:

    Unlike my old Bronco, mRNA injections have only been on the market for about two years, and according to the FDA Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database, mRNA “vaccines” have been named the primary suspect in over 1.5 million adverse event reports, of which there are >20,000 heart attacks and >27,000 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis just in the USA alone. Worldwide numbers would be greater. According to many references, including an FDA-funded study out of Harvard, VAERS reports represent fewer than 1 percent of vaccine adverse events that actually occur.

    Interestingly, the NHTSA link above on my Ford Bronco II only shows: one parts recall, one investigation and 23 complaints, and still features a button in the upper right hand corner for submitting new complaints.

    Wikipedia defines an humanitarian crisis or humanitarian disaster as a: “singular event or a series of events that are threatening in terms of health, safety or well-being of a community or large group of people.” Based on VAERS and previous V-safe findings, adverse events from mRNA shots in the USA alone could be considered a humanitarian crisis.

    Despite those alarming clinical findings, the CDC has concluded that collecting new safety reports is somehow no longer in the interest of America’s public health. Existing data from the V-safe site showed around 6.5 million adverse events/health impacts out of 10.1 million users, with around 2 million of those people unable to conduct normal activities of daily living or needing medical care, according to a third-party rendering of its findings. In other words, despite mRNA shots still being widely available and the CDC promoting its continued use, it’s “case closed” with regards to collecting new safety reports under today’s federal public health administration.

    Will the CDC opine on the existing data or justify its halting of collecting new safety data? To the best of my knowledge, stopping the collection of public health information doesn’t have a clinical justification or scientific precedence — especially when it comes to an actively marketed product.

    In George Orwell’s 1984, characters were told by The Party to “reject the evidence of your eyes and ears.” Now, the CDC isn’t even allowing that evidence to be collected for viewing (and prospective rejecting). It’s a terrible idea for any product, let alone novel mRNA technologies.

      Is a Brownstone just a higher class “Triple Decka” as we say in Boston? Does it always have three stories?

      Triple Deckers are wood. I grew up in a Yellowstone, but across the street were Triple Deckers. It was the only Yellowstone I’ve ever seen.

        A brownstone building is made of brownstone.

        A lot of buildings in American cities were made of brownstone in the latter half of the nineteenth century.

          Most of that brownstone came from the quarries right here in Portland, Ct. I think there is still one mine left, a kind of boutique operation, but mostly they are abandoned, filled with water, hundreds of yards deep and a place, every few years or so, a reckless teenager drowns while drinking & swimming.

          Here, we call that red sandstone. Glasgow is largely built with it. In Edinburgh the sandstone is yellow. Well, buff coloured, I suppose, but it’s called yellow sandstone.

          Maybe our red sandstone is slightly redder than your brownstone – hard to tell on a screen as calibration is never the same from one computer to another.

          A brownstone is a much better class of housing than a double- or triple-decker.

    I had three COVID Shots. I still got COVID. I was reading about a year ago about the VAERS Report. It lists some of the issues with the vaccine. I’m 77 years old and came up with Crohn’s Disease about 6-8 months after the shots. The VAERS Report says Crohn’s can be caused by the vaccine. I questioned my PCP, my Gastro doctor.\, and my Cardio doctor. Not one of them new about VAERS and the consequences of the vaccine. Mt eye doctor just had breast cancer and my Cardio doctor’s wife has breast cancer. They had the shots. My Cardio doctor told me his wife of 60 was very healthy and had no family history of breast cancer.
    My mother age 98 was in decent health for her age. Eight months after the vaccine she died of COVID/Heart Failure. My best friend’s wife age 75, died in April. Her lungs were full of blood clots after the shots. My cousin age 38 in excellent health died in his sleep after the shot.
    I’m sure none of this was reported.
    Honestly, someone should be executed for this tragedy! But the big money will move on and look at us as just another bunch of dumb animals that they can use and abuse!

    • Islander August 28, 2023 at 10:17 pm #

      What a travesty.

      Did you take the opportunity to enlighten your PCP and other drs? They must be told of the seriously of their dereliction of duty, and their kicking the Hippocratic Oath to the curb.

      At least you have survived the Crohn’s, but you have sustained major losses. It is so horrifying to hear of this sequence of loss.
      Perhaps are in a good position to warn others of the dangers of these shots.

      My mother had her first shot split into two doses at two different times. She took the first dose shot and immediately got some odd health issues that went away. I successfully convinced her, after her reading a whole lot of material I printed out, not to take the second dose, nor any boosters. She is and has been fine.

    “So far, the cabal running the “Joe Biden” show has avoided nuclear war as a distraction from what is hands-down the worst scandal in American history, way worse than Watergate. The four absurd Trump prosecutions are all ginned-up now, but may have peaked for distraction power — months of dull procedural wrangling lie ahead. “JHK

    So, Biden et al are clearly criminals, but where’s Comer’s proof? The stuff that, in his own words, he ‘hopes’ to find.

    Yet the indictments of Trump & his collection of pathetic lawyerly minions are just “ginned up”? Okay – so I can’t believe my lying eyes, huh? FFS.

    • SoftStarLight August 29, 2023 at 2:34 am #

      To some degree I argue that proof represents privilege. Firstly, no one is required to provide you evidence of any kind. And if you really believe that your eyes need evidence to tell you the truth then you are only fooling yourself. That is why there is going to be all of the procedural wrangling. The Biden clan has much greater levels of privilege than the Trump clan. That factoid should inform you that the Biden clan is already starting out on the wrong side of the judicial scale. Privilege is not obtained by being goody two shoes in the current milieu.

        What is it with liberals and objective reality?

        Every conversation with a liberal devolves into them telling you, “How DARE you….” interject facts, data, statistics, truth, or objective reality into the discussion.

        Another favorite liberal gambit is to tell you that you don’t have a RIGHT to have an opinion (for “opinion,” read “facts, reality, and black-letter law) about any of the various tenets of the liberal faith, whether it be about covid, the vaccines, crime, climate change, etc.

      @ Mike Sherman:

      If I’m not mistaken, there are absolute reams of proof against the Bidens, in the form of bank records. I’m reminded of the Babylon Bee headline, “Democrats say it will take a lot more than eyewitness testimony, bank records, audio, video, complete confessions for them to believe Biden did anything wrong.”

      As far as I can tell, many or most of the charges against Trump are directly or indirectly related to him questioning the 2020 election, and are thus highly bizarre.

      I can very easily imagine that Lahaina representa a mass ritual sacrifice to Molech. There are many different ritual sacrifices that have occurred. This is one of them. The southern border, the jabs, Las Vegas, Nashville, and the list goes on and on. I’ve even thought the Boxing Day tsunami could be one.

      • MaryQueen August 29, 2023 at 10:07 am #

        That concert where 8 died where the stage was a portal to hell? And the 8 who died were hit with something? Everyone there had to be vaxxed. It was very weird. The lead performer didn’t stop singing when the people were dying. Very little coverage…

        • SoftStarLight August 29, 2023 at 12:03 pm #

          Oh yeah, the Astroworld Festival. Yeah that was definitely a Satanic ritual and sacrifice. The graphene oxide in the jabbed concertgoers was supposedly activated to cause heart attacks and then those souls were supposedly sucked through the Portal into the nether realms and the Devil was able to feast on the energies of those souls.

    ” In your utopia, men don’t exist, right? What does that tell you? ”

    — Jarek.

    Lots of things ! ^ – ^

    Like in the factory where I worked we once had a group of Vietnamese Montagnards , fresh off the boat , come in .

    They stayed about a year and a half , and left as a group.

    They spoke fluent French , but not English.

    They were very small people , about the size of your typical 12 year old girl.

    One image that still stands out in my mind is a guy that size tooting a 25 foot long wood roof truss across the floor by himself.

    No question but that they were hard people.

    I was retroactively not surprised that the cousins of these little people won the war.

    Another example is the founder of N.W.A . , Easy – E , who at 25 still looked to be about 12 .

    In a favorite song he sings ,

    ” with a gat ( gun ) , it don’t matter if he’s smaller or bigger.

    ( size don’t mean shit , he’s from the old school , fool ! ) ”

    youtube.com/watch?v=fF3aPT7C51Y

    Another thing was the sexual Revolution may have been the Pill and Hugh Hefner in 1969 ?

    But now it’s a pointless Puritan witch hunt every six months or a year and a half ,

    I can’t recall what the bullshit trouble was then ,

    but I got the idea then when the thought occurred to me , ” Well if you are that butt hurt , why not use all his fancy technology you got and reduce it to one sex .

    Problem solved .

    ………

    But no doubt some new problems created.

    Like I suppose if a guy could fit in in their society , and liked his girls small or young , he might think he had landed in paradise the first day or so , but after that think he had landed in Hell.

    Like after the fifth or sixth stranger pats you on the butt and sticks their tongue in your mouth,

    or after the 20th one , after eating lots of Garlic , still stands less than a foot away from you.

    Speaking of meals , some stranger plops down in your lap , and starts eating out of your bowl , with your spoon.

    Or they all wear uniforms , made in uniform sizes , so if one needs a size A overcoat to go out in the weather , and yours it’s sitting there , they will take it. And that isn’t stealing , they all do it.

    So flu season hits them really hard , but they go right on doing that shit.

    Definitely not paradise if you are a germaphobe.

    And you better not complain , because they brag about exterminating billions of humans.

    And I thought the idea of the death knell of mankind taking the form of a petite , doll – like little girl was sick.

    Some folks rate the Twilight Zone episode , ” Living Doll ” one of the most unsettling.

    youtube.com/watch?v=w4WWGKbegmI

    I just replace the doll with the little girl.

    Also , it seems to me that if you are sincerely going to defend totalitarianism as a utopian ideal ,

    it’s very likely that at some point the idea that you need a new species will at least cross your mind.

    • SoftStarLight August 29, 2023 at 3:00 am #

      Maybe it doesn’t have to be so scary after all though? Maybe the world simply needs just a little more caring and sharing. Maybe if it wasn’t too much to ask that people follow the rules. But it all is apparently too much to ask. And thus you get your horror show. Talky Tina simply said you better be nice to me. If you consider that is it really too much to ask? It is a relevant discussion. Many people will tell you that its just way too much of an effort for them to be nice or to do right etc. When people are nasty and brutish and cruel does the revenge of the killer dolls really bother you all that much.

      • KesaAnna August 29, 2023 at 3:18 am #

        Now that I think about it ,

        there is a line in a Stevie Nicks song , ” ….sometimes I am surrounded by too much love. ”

        And in another one , ” in the sea of love , where every one of you would love to drown. ”

        So I thought , ” What if the world was really like that ? Would it be heaven , or would it be hell ? Would it be heaven AND hell ?

        • KesaAnna August 29, 2023 at 3:42 am #

          ” does the revenge of the killer dolls really bother you all that much. ”

          Not me.

          Like in the commune where Cassie lives they have a really big meat locker.

          So when summer comes , many girls go down to the meat locker to sleep . But a lot of girls have that idea , and a meat locker is really cold.

          So it typically means sleeping entwined with three or four other girls.

          Very cozy , if that’s your point of view ?

          Or on a cold winter night the kitchens will be so packed with girls you can’t cross the room without stepping on someone.

          The overflow goes out to the garage where they fire up the huge station wagon limousines they have.

          The little girls will cuddle up on the hood over the engine , and the older girls will hang around back at the exhaust pipe.

          I think it has a rustic , brutish charm to it.

            Well, at least you know someone will be there for you. Entwined like geckos lol. It makes sense that it would be heaven and hell at the same time. It sort of represents the perfect marriage of the dual aspects. Which in reality is what nature and things tend to during the course of time. So not much different than things are now. Different in form and appearance perhaps but not fundamentally different in nature.
