All This and World War, Too

“To all scholars who teach jihad… to all who teach and learn, this is a moment for the application of theories.” —Khaled Meshaal, former Hamas leader

      It’s less than a week since the skies over the Negev Desert filled with something eerily like the flying monkeys of Oz upgraded to Hamas Road Warriors in motorized paragliders, kicking off that third world war we’ve been hearing about all our lives, and not at all the way we expected either, which was more Dr. Strangelove style, with the mushroom clouds billowing everywhere — though, who knows, it might come to that, too, before long.

      This new catastrophe, quickly globalizing, makes the War in Ukraine seem as comfortable as an old sweater. For now, the question of intel failures must be put aside. There will be no official inquiries while US carrier fleets sail into position, and Hezbollah does a war dance on the northern frontier with Syria, and the Israelis struggle to strategize an extremely sticky hostage predicament, even as their air force blows up whole blocks of Gaza City.

     Meanwhile, former Hamas chief Khaled Meshaal has called for a worldwide jihad this very day, Friday the 13th, as it happens, by which he means disruption within the entity known as Western Civ, where Jihad’s most dogged enemies dwell. For years, footloose emigres have been flooding into Europe and across America’s border with Mexico, mostly young men, hardly vetted, the sort of humans most likely to act-out warrior scripts in a zeitgeist gone sour, and I guess we’ll find out pretty soon whether some of them were sent to be activated against us.

     The world is periodically subject to a mighty release of tensions. That’s why there are great wars. We’ve been well aware of these tensions building into the new millennium and now here it is. The elaborate systems we’ve allowed to evolve — our gigantic manufacturing and resource supply lines, the financial scaffold that has turned capital formation into a freak show of scams and wishes, the grotesque behemoth governments of a zillion regulatory impulses turning more tyrannically against their own citizens every day — all add up to a general condition of fantastic fragility. So, you see, a global release of tensions is liable to bust up a lot of those arrangements.

     Western Civ has been expecting this for a while. All the years of clever work-arounds and kicking cans down the road tells you that. The big question is: can we carry on as before? And anyone with half a brain can see the answer is: probably not. That is, not enjoying the many comforts, conveniences, and luxuries we’ve grown used to, all of which hinge on our energy supplies, enough of which is centered in the Ummah of Islam so that when it is interrupted or cut-off, there goes the cushy life for us. (And let’s note that for many in Western Civ life has already and stealthily turned into a serious struggle lately).

      So, whichever way these new events may go, things have changed. There will be more intense conflict over the remaining oil in the Middle East. Europe may finally discover that it does not relish being turned into one big mosque. And the USA is so lost in self mind-fuckery that we can’t even get our House of Representatives in order. The American students (and faculty!) cheerleading for Gaza’s Road Warrior executioners might represent the last stand of Woke derangement. This degenerate nonsense has run its course. It may dawn in our centers-of-learning — and every other collaborating institution — that we have more important things to think about than the etiquette around men who dress-up as women.

     One naturally wonders what role the shadowy Globalists have played in the build-up to all this, and how things will go with them. I can imagine Europe plunged into political chaos that would lead to scenes like a mob riding Klaus Schwab out of his Swiss redoubt on a rail, and the German government falling, and Paris on fire, and street-fighting in Stockholm. Chaos is as chaos wantsto do. One thing seems certain: it’ll be a cold winter there for most everybody.

     It’s probably safe to say that Mr. Zelensky will not be getting additional bowls of gruel out of Uncle Sam. No one is paying attention to Ukraine now, and that sudden neglect by the once-solicitous NATO alliance could go on indefinitely with wider conflict breaking out elsewhere — meaning that Russia will be left to methodically restore the status quo ante that allowed Ukraine to be a quiet backwater in Russia’s sphere of influence since the end of the previous world war, until our wicked and reckless neocons moved to wreck the joint.

     China is the joker in the deck now. There’s plenty of chatter that China’s banking system is toast, with its new and large middle class left holding a giant bag of worthless securities and unsellable real estate, and that when they are sufficiently pissed-off that will be the last round-up for Uncle Xi and his CCP. But then, you can also easily imagine that gang thinking now is the optimum moment to try and grab Taiwan and its riches, with Western Civ all tied up elsewhere. I remind you of China’s “Four Wars” doctrine for bringing us down. There’s Ukraine, now Israel, there’s the internal war of Left versus Right throughout the West, and there’s the massive invasion of Europe and the USA of uninvited mutts. Four wars. The breaking point.

     Yet to play out is America’s crisis of leadership. As supply lines break, and the flash mobs loot the luxury shops, and the illegal aliens stream in, and the price of everything goes up-up-up, and the truth about the Covid vaccines is finally grokked, even the dazed-and-confused American public might notice that the White House has become a zombie palace. Politics hates a vacuum and “Joe Biden” begins to look like a black hole that will suck the execrable deep state blob that surrounds him across the event horizon that opens to oblivion. I’d go so far to predict that well before the 2024 election, America will have a new chief executive and that it won’t be Kamala Harris. It could be someone in a uniform, though. Just sayin’. Everything is in flux.

      • Miss Demeanor October 13, 2023 at 10:36 am #

        As far as I can see, there is no real evidence that the paraglider attack occurred or was part of the Oct 7 attack.
        Please correct me if I am wrong.
        There is video that shows paragliders swarming over a festival, which could have been filmed anywhere, anytime in the last 5 years.

        There are no videos that are time-stamped showing certified Hamas members flying in to this particular festival with guns and proceeding to kill people. If there were, we would certainly be seeing them.

        There are other videos of middle eastern men with guns trying to fly in them, including one video of a paraglider hitting a power line somewhere and bursting into flames.

        It takes months of instruction to learn how to do this, including many tandem flights with an instructor in a double capacity craft.

        It seems all too easy to scour the internet for random videos to post along with incendiary captions accusing such and such a group of being these certain people committing this current made-up atrocity.

        Any successful marketing campaign needs an iconic image associated with an event or cause that is novel, and memorable.
        So now we have the image of a paraglider being used like the silhouette of Che Guevara.

        These days, I suspect any in-focus videos with highly-produced, emotional sound tracks, showing heart-rending images of children, bodies, destruction, of being pure propaganda, engineered to get you to think somebody is doing something you should be angry about and send money somewhere.

        Yes, somebody is doing something.
        They are collecting money and perhaps justifying murder or land grabbing.
        Yes we should be angry.

        • Disaffected October 13, 2023 at 10:48 am #

          Excellent points all! I must admit, I never even considered that. Watching James Corbett further expound on things as we speak.


          • Disaffected October 13, 2023 at 11:33 am #

            There are no videos that are time-stamped showing certified Hamas members flying in to this particular festival with guns and proceeding to kill people.

            Your points about marketing and video evidence have me wondering why, in this dumbed down world we live in, they didn’t have the alleged Hamas stormtroopers decked out in those black FBI or DEA-style windbreakers emblazoned with HAMAS in big bold white lettering across the back. Just to make double sure that everyone “gets it.”

        • D from OR October 13, 2023 at 11:11 am #

          Exactly. Marketing.

          Same “burned out” cars (all white) in the roadway seem to be imported from Lahaina. Whatever software *they* are using doesn’t do the color part. Or they don’t know how.

          Out-of-focus footage or footage that doesn’t show the event it claims but is “evidence” is common despite everyone having a high resolution video camera in their pocket.

          Same thing happened with Ukraine but we’re supposed to believe somehow *this time* everything we see and hear in this conflict is above board and legit. Always the case when Israel is involved. You dare not question.

          So yeah, I’m angry because I can smell the marketing campaign. Just like all the other events we’ve endured the last few years. Always to appeal to the Boomer Truth Regime we live under.

          • hmuller October 13, 2023 at 11:19 am #

            I remember CNN showing anti-Putin riots in Russia. Yet, somehow all the street signs and shops were covered with Greek writing.

            Maybe they broadcast file footage of Greek disorder because CNN is cheap and lazy. But it does shows how devoted they are to presenting truth. Hint: not at all.

          • DaveO907 October 13, 2023 at 1:22 pm #

            “Billionaire” Boomers I think more appropriate. And they have merely taken their turn from “The Greatest Generation” of Boomers which preceded them. You know, the guys who murdered the hope(s) of our generation, especially JFK.

            And their ranks have been dutifully refilled by the (your [?]) Techie Wunderkind brethren & minions who now have their own giant piles of lucre and wishes being fulfilled by their “Stay Bought-Bot” Congresscritters.

            The truly opportunistic and clever ones have been hightailing it to D.C. (‘North of Richmond’) for generations now, whatever appellation is hung on their generation’s to-be legacy. There used to be “one in every crowd.” Now there are tens of thousands in their hives inside the bzzz, bzzz, bzzz Beltway.

            “The Cyrillic alphabet is closely based on the Greek alphabet, with about a dozen additional letters invented to represent Slavic sounds not found in Greek.

            Surely you’re aware of that simple & well-known fact, right? Well, aren’t you????

        • hmuller October 13, 2023 at 11:12 am #

          There’s a lot that’s fishy here. Every Israeli settlement, (especially those near Palestinians) is armed to the teeth with small arms. Every settler home has a rifle.

          Yet Hamas strolled in and massacred hundreds in their homes?!

          • Beryl of Oyl October 13, 2023 at 11:33 am #

            I keep hearing they kept their weapons in “armories” but I can’t find anything on that except one item about the woman who was head of security at her settlement went and got their guns and they had no deaths.

          • Disaffected October 13, 2023 at 11:35 am #

            Obviously, they make terrible house guests. Didn’t even clean up or flush the toilets when they left, either. Swine! 😉

        • Beryl of Oyl October 13, 2023 at 11:23 am #

          I was watching what purported to be concert goers’ cell phone footage.

          People running around scared, some people bleeding, but you couldn’t tell exactly what was going on.

          Granted, I have not seen all the videos out there, I just haven’t seen anything that proves the paraglider story yet.

          What I do know if that the sponsors of the concert are expressing their sympathy for the people injured ot killed, and from everything I have seen and read so far, something violent and bad happened.

          Yet people cannot muster up any words of condemnation of the acts because of politics in the area it was held in.

          That seems to me uniquely sick in the head, that we are being told we need to read history books so we know whether cutting people up is good or bad.

          • Disaffected October 13, 2023 at 11:37 am #

            I’d say first of all we need to confirm that all the “truth” we’re hearing about coming out of there actually is. I’m far from convinced.

          • D from OR October 13, 2023 at 11:49 am #

            “but you couldn’t tell exactly what was going on.”

            Exactly. It’s by design but go ahead and believe that each time there is some incident cameras don’t work and footage is blurred. Every single time.

            If you have an example otherwise I’m all eyes.

            Suggesting that “politics” is in the way of acknowledging atrocities is a convenient way to dismiss the questions of legitimacy.

          • Beryl of Oyl October 13, 2023 at 12:02 pm #

            I never suggested politics is in the way of acknowledging atrocities.

            These people are saying these attacks did happen, yet they are taking the side of the people they believe did it, claiming justification.

            What I am saying is when there are murdered people, and these people are not saying nothing happened to anybody, there is something really wrong with somebody who has zero sympathy for innocent victims, because they studied up and decided the murderers have a legitimate grievance against the government of the country in which the murders took place.

            The IRA blew up an infant in a baby carriage. I thought the British government was in the wrong in that conflict.

            Did I say, now hold on a minute, what about….?

            Of course not. Because I’m not sick in the head like some of these politicized brainwashed partisans.

          • Paula D October 13, 2023 at 12:59 pm #

            Agree, Beryl. Watching people cheer on the deaths of Israelis is disgusting. I am avoiding a lot of social media at this time.

            But Israel blew the sympathy of many by bombing Gaza.

            Unless that also didn’t happen. I read in Simplicus that they actually did not carpet bomb.

            The US had the sympathy of the world on 9-11, but their subsequent mass murdering rampage through Afghanistan and the Middle East blew that all to hell.

            Russia does it right. No revenge on civilians, no matter what atrocities the Ukie Nazis commit.
            The sympathy of the world is with Russia now.

          • Beryl of Oyl October 13, 2023 at 1:14 pm #

            Yes Paula. I don’t know why sympathy has to be entwined with political beliefs.

            I also think the proof is required before going off to war, but who needs pictures and a body count to be upset that murders happened?

          • Jarek October 14, 2023 at 12:41 am #

            Russia has killed many civilians. It is inevitable in war.

            I remember you blaming the girl for going to get pizza in a pizzeria filled with Ukrainian soldiers.

          • Paula D October 14, 2023 at 1:05 pm #

            No, you don’t remember that.

            I questioned why 14 y.o. female twins were present in a hotbed of male mercenaries.

            You say there were there buying pizza. I say they were the pizza.

            Don’t lie.

        • Miss Demeanor October 13, 2023 at 11:26 am #

          Where are the photos of the landed paragliders abandoned in the kibbutz or the festival area?

          Where are the used parachutes tangled up in the bushes or were they carefully folded up so they could be used again?

          Or did they fly them all out again after untangling the damn things? “OK- done killing, now we’ll find the right wind, get somebody to hold the chute in position to get these off the ground again, Allah willing.”

          If they did exfiltrate by paraglider, they would be slow-moving, sitting ducks, hanging in the air. No way that was part of the escape plan.

          This means they left by vehicle. So how did the vehicles get there? How were several miles of cars torched by paraglider pilots on foot?

          Terrorists in Toyota forerunners, guns bristling, is soooo run of the mill anymore and will not inflame passions and anger, unlike co-opting an image of the rich peoples sport!

          • Not_GeorgeT October 13, 2023 at 11:56 am #

            Earlier in the week I posted how Tracey Beanz (Uncover DC) tagged the video as a training excercise somewhere (I forget where, it’s on their site).

            It appears there still are none of the evidence pieces various posters have noted upstream from here.

            Let it marinate a while longer, see how it ages in a few more days.

            Also, I am of the opinion false flag events are becoming easier to spot because of the frequency and repeat pattern with minor variations.

            Certainly a lot is going on, and seems the intelligence agencies were not overtly intellligent at all. Another repeat performance.

          • D from OR October 13, 2023 at 12:07 pm #

            Brilliant analysis.


            Just like when you watch a movie you’re supposed to suspend a bit of disbelief.

            What was the one for Ukraine? Ghost of Kiev. Guess that was kind of like a super hero flick. This was an action movie.

            For this event we are supposed to avoid any critical thinking. Not allowed because naturally that might reveal things aren’t exactly what we’ve been told.

            Like always.

          • Beryl of Oyl October 13, 2023 at 12:10 pm #

            Tracey Beanz said this video showing Israelis faking footage of deaths is actually from a movie.



          • Qwibqwib October 13, 2023 at 10:10 pm #

            The logical plan would be to launch early in the morning, setting course with the sun at your back. Paragliders do not show up on radar, so very few if any sightings would be made for the initial assault.

            Each ship would have a passenger who would make a parachute jump above the target. The pilot would then bring the paraglider around and land. As hostages were taken, they would be loaded up onto the waiting paragliders and taken directly into Gaza. The pilots could possibly return with another fighter to repeat the process.

            It only takes about 18 days of training, which includes ground school, to learn how to pilot a paraglider or trike. They quickly fold up to a size that fits easily into a garage or trailer. 2 cycle engines with carburetors are little more complicated than a lawn mower. Fabric covered wings are easily repaired with thread and needle. seem like an obvious choice for them…

      Members of a veterans group I belong to are stocking up on guns and bullets for when the domestic terrorists start. Those of us in New York are fucked, though, since the fucking idiot in the governor’s mansion thinks it’s a good idea to have background checks to buy bullets. And, you can’t buy bullets by mail order in NYS. Bastards care more about invading privacy and creating a database of who owns what than they are with citizens’ safety.

            Such a confusion of a comment and question – where to begin?

            Apparently you believe “Antifa” is real? It wasn’t a CIA psy-op just a bunch of homegrown radicals. Ok.

            Funny, all I saw was a bunch of skinny losers dressed in black and their rag-tag hangers-on. You know the usual blue haired, gender confused and out-of-shape folks. Sometimes they gathered in the park near my house and I would see them at the the convenience store beforehand to pick up snacks.

            I can assure you it was more cos-play than a threat. When the money dried up so did they.

            It’s obvious that all those restrictions on your rights to own guns and ammo in commie NY state have angered you and is reinforced by the fact that you can do nothing about it but complain.

            Insinuating that the idea I don’t want old guys with guns in the streets means I’m anti-cop is a real stretch. See, I actually lived through a “domestic terror event” for months. It makes you very pro law enforcement if you weren’t already.

            So, it turns out, the best place to target practice is in a marine environment. No lie, the water has a calming effect on the air above it. When dialing in a zero on a rifle, the calm air above water helps immensely.

            After learning this fact for the first time several years ago, I took the family out on a camping trip to a reservoir near our town. We rented a boat for the occasion. We were living in the mountains at the time. We camped in a very remote location with few regulations regarding firearms. It was unlikely we would have any trouble zeroing all of our weapons.

            The following day, after eating breakfast, my son and I loaded the boat and went out onto the water. We were having a great time shooting targets and getting more and more accurate with each iteration.

            We decided to stop for lunch. As I was pulling sandwiches and drinks out of the cooler, my son noticed the rear of the boat was pretty low in the water. As surprising as this was, we were soon shocked again to notice there was water in the boat! It was coming fast and we had to make a decision quickly!

            We jumped into the cold water and swam back for shore. I looked over my shoulder after clearing about 15 yards of distance. It was amazing how quickly the boat was sinking! I watched as the bow gently disappeared into the water.

            We made it back to our campsite, coming ashore with shoes still on and head to toe soaking wet. I looked at the area where our boat had sunk and noticed some things like the cooler, some papers and some other loose debris had risen to the surface and now marked the area where the boat had gone under.

            Another camper came over in his boat and offered to take us to the area. We jumped on board and searched the lake for what we could find. We didn’t get much. I lost all of my guns in a boating accident…

Life without cancer would be superior, too, but so far we have not found a way to get rid of it, and we have no guarantee that we ever will find a way, so we can only strive to make the best of a bad situation.” ~ Robert Higgs

            @ Uncle Bob:

            Well, actually, Ultra-Orthodox Jews oppose the establlishment of the State of Israel, considering it illegitimate, in that is is anti-Messianic. I think the view is that there can be no Israel without the Messiah (Mosheach). Thus, in this view, if you “bless Israel,” you would be blessing an illegitimate State.

            In fact, according to the Midrash, “the people were adjured not to return collectively to the Land of Israel by physical force…. Instead, they were required to wait for the heavenly, complete, miraculous, supernatural, and meta-historical redemption that is totally distinct from the realm of human endeavor.” The link I’m quoting continues, “Unless the Lord build the house, its builders labor in vain; unless the Lord watch over the city, the watchman keeps vigil in vain.”

            “Accordingly, any Jewish political revival that is not Messianic intrinsically repressents a denial of divine providence and the hope of redemption; it is a betrayal of the destiny and uniqueness that is Israel…. The attempt…to return by physical power…is a collective revolt against the Kindom of Heaven…. This is an act of the devil, a demonic outburst of unclean forces…. It is ultimately doomed to failure, regardless of human deeds. ‘The Lord shall rebuke you, the Satan who has chosen Jerusalem’ (paraphrasing Zechariah 3:2).”

            My right-clich stopped working, but if you want to read the whole argument, google Ultra-Orthodox and Anti-Zionist, by Ravitzky.

          • Anthea October 14, 2023 at 9:28 am #

            @ Uncle Bob:

            My point above–for those who quote the Biblical adjuration for nations to “bless Israel”–is that maybe the secular State of Israel as it exists today is not what the Bible was talking about, considering that Ultra-Orthodox Jews believe said state to be “an act of the devil, a demonic outburst of unclean forces.” I am tending to side with the Ultra-Orthodox Jews on this.

            Hence, for Christians, support for the State of Israel would be an instance of supporting something illegitimate–and frankly demonic. (I think most State systems are illegitimate and mant are frankly demonic, so there’s that.)

            On the other hand, this does not mean one should necessarily support the Palestinians, either.

            There are two things going on here. First, we have two groups of people fighting over the ownership of a piece of real estate. These disputes are as old as the human species, if not older. Nothing unusual here at all. Secondly, the reason Gaza exists at all is because it serves the political purposes of both Israel and the surrouding Arab states–as well as the US and who knows who else. If the place and its people were of no political use, it would have been gone decades ago. The Palestinians are everybody elses political football.

            My guess is that Gaza will continue to exist and perform its role on the world stage, because this serves the interests of a lot of other people.

            And then we have Israel trying to destroy Temple Mount, one of the three holiest sites in the Muslim faith. My understanding is that Israel intends to build a Jewish temple on the area so that their messiah (the REAL Jewish guy, not the old one) can come to save them. Which is why their calendar year is 5784 and not 2023. This shit goes deep!

            I have noticed how Muslims take their faith pretty seriously. Praying five times a day. Practicing Jews seem pretty serious about their faith too with weekly sunset family dinners. But I am pretty sure they only have one day a year for “atonement”.

            But “good Christians” follow the words of Jesus Christ when he said, “Pray unceasingly”. Every word, thought and deed should be based on the power of love, not conquest and hate.

            Pull out a map of Earth and start sticking push pins into all the areas of war and unrest. My gut feeling is that WW III has started. And considering the art of diplomacy is completely missing in the U.S., I am not feeling very hopeful about the future.

            I’ve been told that there is room for both there. The Antichrist will be a political genius and will be able to build it – and then sit in it to be worshiped by many.

            He will be a Great Man of Peace – and of War for those who do not submit. The Two Witnesses will defy him in Jerusalem itself. And those who attempt to lay hands on them, they will burn with divine fire. When their work is done, they will lose this ability and they will be put to death.

            Is it “israel”, Abby, or those crazy religious Jews who moved from America to Israel?

            I remember reading a while back that Israel captured that temple in one of their wars, and then gave it back, as a sign of good faith.
            Supposedly, it is those Christians who believe in the return of Jesus who want that temple rebuilt. Now joined by the braided religious nuts of New York.

      I was listening to a radio talk show on the way in to work this morning. They were interviewing some of those miscreants protesting in favor of the Hamas terrorists. I was shocked by what I heard. Not that the rhetoric they were saying was unexpected, it was as I expected it would be. Rhetoric without knowledge of anything, regurgitations of what they have been told over and over again. No, what shocked me was the difference between the men and women they were interviewing. The men interviewed were just stupid and when confronted on the fact that Hamas is beheading children they seemed to be taken aback. Now the women. The women being interviewed were cold, heartless and unyielding. One woman actually claimed that the jews in Israel brought this upon themselves, even the children.

      What has happened to our women? It’s as if evil has taken an even greater hold in their hearts. Aren’t women supposed to be the kinder and more gentler member of the human species?

            Are their atrocities in war, of the worst sort? Yes there are, and Israel has burned to a crisp how many Arab babies? But the specific claim of 40 — which number is associated with their black magic btw — 40 headless babies, are to be taken as an actual atrocity, upon the word of journalist?? get real.

            And to prove the claim, there’s a picture of dead dog.. and people are still relying on this claim. How much clown world are we gonna get?

          Anyone who doesn’t believe people are capable of such atrocities doesn’t know people. And it’s not as if there is no precedent for this. One thinks of the Slaughter of the Innocents in Herod’s time.

            Yes, Tuco and Anthea.

            We are a capable of the worst.

            Hysteria and embellishments for propaganda here, in the rush to catch the attention of the masses? Maybe. But it is clear that hundreds of civilians were killed in cold blood.

            Spin it any way you want politically, but that’s a fact. People are ugly, wars uglier.

        ” One woman actually claimed that the jews in Israel brought this upon themselves, even the children.”

        Is that a false statement? Cooping 2M people in a 140sqMile open air prison for 80+ years, whilst just taking their property and land over that time period, does not justify their reaction, but DOES explain it.

        It is not a Palestinian issue, it is a one of humanity. The Jews themselves did the same in Warsaw, after only being cooped up for years, not decades.

        I don’t find her response cold, but truthful and horrific of what Israel has allowed to fester for all these decades.

        • tuco22 October 13, 2023 at 11:07 am #

          It might shock a lot of people to learn that what we call Palestine is actually Israeli land. Gaza and the West Bank are Israeli land. Palestine came about when the Romans shipped off the Jewish survivors of the siege of Jerusalem in 70 AD to the nations within the empire. They even renamed Judea Palestine on their maps. The non-Jewish people who remained thus became “Palestinians.” But there is no such “ethnicity.”

            And read about the savageries the invading Israelis visited upon the peoples of Palestine when they first entered.

            In Genesis.

            Is there a Jewish ethnicity? Why do they look so very different from each other? Read “The Wandering Who”.

            Or Koestler’s “The 13th Tribe” about a nation of Turkic people called the Khazars who entered Judaism.

        • Anthea October 14, 2023 at 10:38 am #

          @ Wizard of the Saddle:

          I think we’ve covered the emotionalism of men versus women several times here. Men are actually extremely emotional, it’s just that they have different emotions, the main one being anger. I’ve mentioned before that quite a few men are more or less constantly angry at a low level. You don’t see women suffering from road rage, but this is fairly common in men. Often when I’ve been in the car with a man, his entire conversation consists of bitching about the other drivers on the road. If you go to a Mexican restaurant with them, they bitch because nobody speaks English and then stiff the waiter.

          A few months ago, one of our regular posters (I can’t remember who) here shared a story in which he was at a restaurant and observed a young family with two children, whom he viewed as a couple of brats. THEN he related that he followed them out to the parking lot and was enraged because the wife got in the back seat with the kids.

          With men, there often seems to be a constantly simmering low level of anger (erupting from time to time). I’ve learned to largely ignore it, if I don’t have to be around them very often. I think this mostly goes unacknowledged simply because it is so constant that it becomes background noise.

          Honestly, I sometimes wonder if men’s mental stability has gone downhill over the past few decades. Road rage used to be unheard-of. If a man had displayed this–or a tendency to stalk young families in restaurants–in 1955, his family would probably have considered committing him.

          Of course I do often talk with men who appear to be perfectly well balanced mentally. Perhaps the nut-jobs are over-represented here.

      • Heartlander October 13, 2023 at 11:55 am #

        “What has happened to our women? It’s as if evil has taken an even greater hold in their hearts. Aren’t women supposed to be the kinder and more gentler member of the human species? The nurturers? These women were in full support of the horrible atrocities being committed”

        Women’s hearts have been hardened by 50 years of murdering THEIR OWN babies before birth.

        Think of what kind of mind-fuckery has to happen to destroy in human mothers the most basic instinct there is in nature: the instinct of a mother to protect her young.

        Women who’ve had abortions either repent of what they did, accepting God’s forgiveness, which enables them to grow and move on,
        they have to get very hard-hearted, as a psychological defense mechanism. (The tragic irony is that the psyche, in its effort to defend itself, actually gets warped and pathological.)

        I have seen some women after abortion get very, very hard indeed. Even terrifying.

      • Jarek October 13, 2023 at 1:00 pm #

        Kinder and more gentler? To each other? To Men? Talk to some divorce lawyers.

        Yes, to children and to animals. At least the children they don’t abort as inconvenient.

        If you’re fine with abortion, you’re going to be fine with cutting off children’s heads. They often abort children by doing that.

        Not that it necessarily happened in this case of course.

        Remember how the gov & media lied about covid & the jabs?

        Assume that everything that comes from the gov & media is a lie until proven otherwise, & work backwards from there.

        Good secondary sources? Read articles & comments, & *follow links*:

        Moon of Alabama.com
        Simplicius substack
        John Helmer “Dances with Bears”

        Here are some clues:

        * Early on Israel funded & nurtured Hamas as a counter balance to the PLO.
        * A couple years ago Israel voted to make it a 100% Jewish state. They have stated outright their intent to take over all of Palestine & eliminate all Palestinian “animals.”.
        *This uprising has united Israel’s fractured government behind Netanyahu jit to rescue him from his crimes.
        *It now is being used to (try to) ethnically cleanse Palestine of Palestinians. They have just flooded northern Palestine with flyers ordering them to evacuate south.

        Consider this: drive people off their land, jam them into a tightly packed, open air concentration camp, & trap them there. Respond to any attempt to break free, let alone get their stolen land back, with indiscriminate, mass bombing of women, children, civilians. What do you expect 4 generations down the road? WIth double the population of Maine locked into an area 5 miles x 15 miles?

        Look at the “tense” areas around the world. See when & how they became countries, & you’ll find fractured communities shoehorned together into artificial countries made up of rival groups, mostly around/post WW2.

        Neocons quoted as admitting in writing to the deliberate creation & stoking of “controlled chaos” to leave civilians scrambling while their resources are stolen.

        Btw, did you know that not too many years ago, oil was discovered off the coast of the Gaza strip? 60% of which belongs to the Palestinian people?

        • DaveO907 October 13, 2023 at 2:00 pm #

      And as Mr. JK pointed out, no one is running the govt in Washington. No speaker of the house and the govt is only funded until mid-November. Yikes.

          Well, if we’re on the ‘memory-holed’ bandwagon, just look how easily they got away with Sept 10th 2001’s “Pentagon Missing $2.3 Trillion” (which a Reuters ‘fact check’ team only recently declaimed as “fake news” in an article dated September 15, 2023…)

          Now why would they bother after all of this time? The fact remains the missile plowed right through the offices of the Pentagon’s Inspectors General Investigation offices on the very next day, and C-Span shows Rumsfeld stating on Sept 10, 2001 precisely what he said back then.

          What I originally intended to impart was how that $2.3 trillion had morphed into some $20 trillion some years (post Afghanistan and Iraq invasions) and no resolution of either number has ever been proudly held up by some Pentagon official saying “See! We figured it out!” Or, “We caught the perps!”

          I have a book written by an ex-military pilot jock called “The Big Bamboozle” which dug deeply into so much of what surrounded the events of 9/11 2001 and he did it well. Well-researched and foot-noted, it got wide acclaim from the Truther community.

          At the time—around 2010—a well-respected airline pilot of many years, his second book on the topic was in print, his regular career assured, and well-respected by his fellow pilots, he decided to murder his kids and kill himself.

          Because, isn’t that what most normal, successful people do…? Some would even call it a Patriot Act.

    About three years ago I proposed a limited sitcom. Having worked in media for decades, it wasn’t difficult to make my pitch nor was it my first pitch.

    I proposed a show based loosely on Hogan’s Heroes except instead of Germans, it would be Russians holding American POWs.

    The premise of the show was this: The Russians have a special POW camp for the gender fluid – gays, lesbians, trannys, cross-dressers, etc. Since the Russians won’t give them the necessary hormones, the men are reverting back to women and the women are reverting back to being men and everything in between.

    My pitch was shot down because no one could even conceive that such a thing was possible yet, here we are. When we go to war with Russia we will be sending in soldiers that MUST have their hormones or go stark raving mad. Guess where those hormones come from?

          jackrabbit; you have no training or knowledge of immunology to make judgements about the rapidly developed, and shown by many peer reviewed studies to be dangerous, mRNA ‘vaccines.’ You only repeat pfizer’s statements of safely. I’ll bet you don’t even know what the m in mRNA really stand for per the pfizer and moderna documents. Get some training in immunology and ID and then come back and talk.

        The reason they are “excused” is that they must have their medications or go raving mad.

        All of this came about back when I learned that the military was going to pay for transitioning. I was having a conversation with a fellow army officer that I did ROTC with and we were trying to figure out how many days we’d let someone go without their medications before disarming them.

        I know a few people that have transitioned and any interruption in the hormones makes them go insane.

      Umm, the pituitary gland of missing children?

      You know how we have 2 kidneys, right? You can lose one and survive.

      I’ve taken this next bit from the Cleveland Clinic:

      “Can you live without a pituitary gland?

      You can live without your pituitary gland as long as you take medication to replace the pituitary hormones that you’re missing. The pituitary gland hormones are very important for maintaining several bodily functions. An untreated lack of all the pituitary hormones is life-threatening.”

      Next part is from pubmed:

      “The transition age is the period between childhood to adulthood; it refers to a broad set of physical, cognitive and sociocultural modifications, arbitrarily defined as starting in late puberty and ending with full adult maturation. Pituitary disorders in adolescence represent a challenge that requires careful management during the transition to adult care.”

      Naomi Wolfe is going to explain that to us at some point.

      “Most US Jews are Democrats, and are liberals, for important historical reasons that I will explain another time. But they have had such strong allies for Israel in US Presidents, for all of the decades past, I think many of us forgot the fragility of Jewish survival. I think that these scenes of violence in the Jewish state will cause a wave of buyers’ remorse among liberal American Jews, who will rethink what it means for the world, including for the Jewish state, for America to be seen globally as weak; as an untrustworthy and unreliable ally; what it means for Jews and for the Jewish state for America to be led by a senile (sorry, but it must finally be said) puppet of China.”

            The job of the service academies is to provide leadership to the Armed Forces. The Air Force academy receives about 40,000 applications per year. It accepts about a 1,000 cadets. In the past, physical fitness had been a requisite for the applicant. Highly competitive. Latin and Greek? The Air Force academy is not a monastery. You can get an undergraduate degree in Physics or History, but it is going to be a B.S. degree, not a B.A. everybody takes Physics, Calculus, Chemistry, etc. It is required.

            Christianity? The Chapel is the centerpiece of the campus.

            Hollow men? My older son is a pilot for a legacy airline. The younger one is a M.D.

Just death. Men have lost their masculinity and now let the women in their lives rule over them. Women have lost their love and have become cold and evil abandoning and rebelling against their true nature. The children being raised in this environment are soulless ghouls bathing themselves in murderous entertainment and hate.

    All this, and world war, and… insanity.

    Nothing exposes the latent malevolence of our kind than “the fog of war”.

    The latent tyrannical tendencies.

    Protests banned. Opinions banned. Blacklists formed.
    Bill Ackman wants to blacklist students who support Palestine.
    One by one, other master-of-the-corporate-universe “like”, “thums-up” and support this suggestion.

    Tucker Carlson questions Amaerica’s (continued) interest in any wars in Israel and Palestine and right on cue, the squeky voiced neocon masquerading as alt-conservative, Ben Shapiro, is there to attack him. This is the charlatan who does not hide his Israel-first leanings, who regularly visits, interviews, and cavorts with Netanyahu.

    Over in France, they have banned pro-Palestine demonstrations. Going so far as to use water cannons (like 60’s era fire hoses) on protesters.

    Canada is outlawing support. Same in the UK. No critique of Israel is allowed.

    We have the “never go full retard” full neocon Nikki Haley telling Israel to “finish them!” “Finish them!” like the creepy voice in Mortal Kombat games. If the camera panned-in on suddenly developed red hued serpentine eyes I wouldn’t bat a lash.

    We have Lindsey Graham, no children, no skin in the game, telling everyone to “bomb Iran”. Yes, bomb Iran. Start WW3.

    The people in power, and at the top, have lost their minds.
    Even the alleged alternative news Citizen Free Press has gone full neocon. Rabidly so. Totally consumed by the revenge virus.

    People should also be disgusted by all the loss of life to be suffered by more non-combatitants, on both sides. On the innocents who will surely be targeted by missiles, bombs, and random attacks of terror.
    People who critique continued war, continued attacks of attrocity should be allowed to express and explain themselves.

    There should be recrimination and disgust for people who support the callous murder, kidnapping, rape, and assault on innocent civilians. Let there be no doubt. Let them out themselves. Question their motives and logic.

    But that does not mean that people should be silenced, censored, and prohibited from expressing their opinions.

    That does not mean the opposing side, the Israelis, should be permitted carte blanche to continue their degradations against the Palestinian people with starvation, thirst, and annhilation against mostly innocents and poor cheered-on and unequivocally supported.

    Yet here we are marching in to another “globalist” trap.
    Look how easy we allow our opinions to be silenced. Our intellectuals to be shamed. Our young people banned and blacklisted. Look how we are forced to march lockstep to our demise. In a foreign country, in a far away land. Bceause of money and undue influence, and because of hate, revenge, and sinister plotting.

    People can dislike BLM, Antifa, the student groups, etc., but perhaps they are on to something, perhaps they unwittingly stumbled on to perceiving the big fascist picture that too many of the unthinking classes are getting consumed by.

    Nah, they want you divided. They want you in on their wars.

        That people continue to wander lost while thinking they truly know what is going on and exactly where they stand. They cannot see the intentional fog that surrounds them.
        Because it was designed that way and is continually refined toward that end.

        It’s worthy of the best Twilight Zone episodes ever; Rod Serling had something to teach us, but far from everybody got the underlying message.
        I think it’s time to drag out Carlin’s “The Big Club” again. Judging by so many people’s thoughts on here today especially—it’s lightbulb time.

    Re “The American students (and faculty!) cheerleading for Gaza’s Road Warrior executioners might represent the last stand of Woke derangement.”

    I think you have got this exactly backward.

    You got it right when you note that the advocates of open borders might be having second thoughts.

    But these two views do not compute, since in both cases you call out the woke.

    Those with a genuine interest in understanding the background to the current breakout of Hamas, the supposed intel failure, the domestic political tensions within Israel that have a huge effect on the buildup to and timing of this counterattack, and the reole of the USA in enabling the Israelis to think they can now eradicate the Paliestinians can do no better than to watch this discussion with Alastair Crooke i nits entirety:


    The idea of labeling as “animals” 2.5 million people who have been confined in a 125-square-mile concentration camp—located on what was their land—for 25 years is absurd.

    Those who label Hamas “animals” should recall Operation Cast Lead, the Peace march to the Gaza Fence, among other atrocities perpetrated on Palestinian civilians and also the relative numbers of Palestinian vs. Israeli civilians who have been lost their lives in this ongoing illegal occupation and of Palestinians land and totalitarian control and abuse of civilians. .

        Nobody is saying it is OK.
        Why are so many so obtuse?

        You think this attrocity was born from nothing?
        Because when you call people an animal, you insinuate that they are acting on instinct and not motives and some logic, twisted or not.

        You either do not have the capacity nor the inclination to delve into that. So you simply call them animals and no explanations are needed.

        There is no justification for murdering innocents but if you familiarized yourself with the attrocities and degradations and destruction of Palestinian society you might learn what desperate and cornered people are capable of.

            @ Beryl of Oyl:

            Well, it seems to me that, since murdering party-goers does not help the people of Gaza–or their cause–then that was not the reason for it. Ergo, someone other than the people of Gaza (assuming they’re not nuts) decided to take this action for reasons of their own. It’s hard to hazard a guess as to who or why. Seems everybody in the Middle East wants to kill somebody else in the Middle East–and elsewhere, if they get the chance–so it could be any number of state actors, for any number of reasons. The most obvious one, though, is that someone would like to start a war over there. It also looks like someone would like to draw the US into war over there.

      Islander was for a One State solution. Probably still is.

      Lavrov has vetoed this and has come out for a two state solution. He is full of sanity, not hatred.

      My sympathies are clear, but I’m not blinded by them. A two state solution is the answer. They should have been given the West Bank a long time ago.

      • Islander October 13, 2023 at 4:24 pm #

        “Islander was for a One State solution. Probably still is. ”


        There has been general consensus that a two-state solution is no longer possible because of the Israelis’ delaying actions while simultaneously promoting populating the West Bank with Jews via illegal settlements. Now to the tune of over 750,000 people.

        Thus there is no more land for a Palestinian state. Hence the general transformation of thought regarding the future of Israel.

        However, the increasingly open and official espousal in Israel of apartheid, attacks on Palestinians in Israel proper, enhrinement in the constitution of Israel as a Jewish ethnic state have also confounded those who hoped for some kind of actual democracy in Israel for all.

        The Israelis prefer the genocide option.

        I hope that answers your latest MUS action.

    “BLM coming out in support of Hamas is causing quite a bit of consternation in the Jews I know who were good liberal supporters of BLM up to now. The old “lie down with dogs, get up with fleas” adage comes to mind.”

    Yes, Israel has always been the mote of illogic and cognitive dissonance in US progressives’ and liberals’ eyes. Especially since the Jewish State has *openly* proclaimed apartheid, ethnic cleansing, and genocidal as official state policies, enshrined in law.

    Now “Biden” is going full monte for the same agenda. The old fool.

    I don’t know why JHK suddenly seems to be aligning himself with “Biden.” Oh, and with Zelensky, too!!! By default. Quite a tour de force of squaring the circle.

    Jewish Americans would do well to understand that the dynamics of internal Israeli politics are far more conflicted than generally ever gets out to “the West,” and per Crooke this is the decisive context for the Hamas action at this time. Also the reason that Hezbollah stands at the ready.

    For this reason alone all should pay attention to the “intel” on the growth of the Israeli right and its plans, provided by Alastair Crooke.

    We have of course seen a few “dots” relating to these developments—for instance, the controversy over the Israeli Supreme Court—but Crooke provides many additional dots and connects them with other internal and external factors.

            Cats torture their prey and often don’t even both to eat it since they aren’t hungry. Dolphins kill purpoises for fun. Killer Whales play with Dolphins, using them as beach balls, even unto injury and death.

            Your attempt to project morality onto animals is like what Whites do to other races. God, what a brilliant insight, eh?

            Humpbacks protect other species against Killer Whales. How does that help them? It’s a serious risk I’d say. Even Nature rises above itself at times. Human nature is much better than Nature – at least at its best. Much worse at its worse.

            @ gustafson:

            It is well known that animals reproduce to the point that the resources in their territory are exhausted: population overshoot followed by die-off. When there are too many rabbits in an area, they eat up all the available food and are either forced into a new territory, or they attract high numbers of predators, or both. (Female rabbits in overcrowded conditions resorb gestating baby rabbits. Some animals eat their young in times of scarcity.)

            When the predators move in to eat the surplus rabbits, their population expands. After they’ve eaten up all the surplus rabbits, they too suffer overshoot and die-off. This stuff is cyclical. Happens all the time.

            Thank you both for agreeing.

            I just said above that pretty much all animals would probably do what humans have done (global-scale overshoot) IF GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY,

            but they have not had that opportunity. Still, they haven’t done it. We have.

            My actual, technical position is relative moral equality among all animals (humans too). You can both relax now, maybe.

          “Crook’s main thrust was how atavistic irrationality has played major current roles in both conflicts: racism in Uke, Zionism in Israel.’

          Crook didn’t use the word “atavistic.”

          He spoke of the depth of commitment to the third most important religious symbol to all of Islam I suppose that religious feeling might be labeled “atavistic,” but that was not what I meant when I used that word.

          I was referring to the tendency of Westerners to assume, regarding conflicts they don’t understand or have actually fanned, that the protagonists “just hate each for no reason in that part of the worl.”

          That certainly is not true for Palestine. Everyone got along pretty well under the Ottomans. The trouble started with the shattering of the Ottoman Empire and teh simultaneous appearance of increasingly aggressive Zionists.

          Regarding the Al Aqsa mosque, how about if someone decided to blow up Notre Dame, the Vatican, or St. John’s Cathedral in NYC in order to build a mosque on the site.

          When the Muslims conquered Constantinople, they did not destroy the Aiya Sophia, one of the greatest symbols of Christendom. They just declared that is was now a mosque. . . .

          • gustafson.robert.22 October 13, 2023 at 5:13 pm #

            I would call the far-right Zionism he talks about, that must have Al-Aqsa and sovereignty over historic Judean territory, damn any consequences… atavistic.

            But, if Israel were taking territory out of rational, correctly strategic self-interest motives, I wouldn’t call it that at all.

          It’s not that animals are rational, it’s that they are incapable of doing evil. Even a cat torturing a mouse cannot know evil.

          We are animals too, eating, fornicating, defecating, but it is an accepted convention to not call ourselves that. We are animals with symbols and morals, fully capable of evil.

          Some animals are capable of good, none of evil.

    A few coldblooded comments:

    1. Hamas was voted into power, just like Hitler. The United States had no problem with firebombing Dresden and Hamburg, creating a firestorm by design that incinerated the residents. That is the frame of mind of Israel, which has at least warned the residents to flee an area about to be reduced to rubble. Israel is past door-to-door fighting to save its hostages.

    2. When people chant “Kill the Jews!” and dance in the streets, then, when they are smacked hard, say, “Feel sorry for us. We are such warm and sensitive people,” that is classic psychopathic behavior. They need to be called on it and advised that Israel’s mental health treatment capacity is limited and preoccupied at the moment.

          “According to various reports, Netanyahu made a similar point at a Likud faction meeting in early 2019, when he was quoted as saying that those who oppose a Palestinian state should support the transfer of funds to Gaza, because maintaining the separation between the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza would prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state.”

          Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended Israel’s regular allowing of Qatari funds to be transferred into Gaza, saying it is part of a broader strategy to keep Hamas and the Palestinian Authority separate, a source in Monday’s Likud faction meeting said.

          The prime minister also said that, “whoever is against a Palestinian state should be for” transferring the funds to Gaza, because maintaining a separation between the PA in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza helps prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state.

    • Islander October 13, 2023 at 12:47 pm #

      Yes, Hamas was voted into power—“power,” as in democratic elections. Except that they never were accorded the fruits of their electoral win.

      The comparison with Hitler is off-base. More like what happened to Hitler’s opponents after the Machtergreifung. So, please do get your facts straight.

      And while we’re on the “terrorism” theme, let’s recall that the State of Israel was midwifed by terror—there was nothing remotely “democratic” about it.

      Back to Hamas. Retrieved from the memory hole, some “intel” on what happened in the election of 2006:


      By John V. Whitbeck

      If one views the world through the eyes of Israeli and Western governments and media, one is likely to believe that the primary obstacle to Middle East peace has for the past several years been Fatah’s failure to “dismantle the infrastructure of terror” and has now become Hamas’ desire for the “destruction of Israel”.

      A greater obstacle may be the failure to question what, if anything, such catch phrases actually mean and to move beyond them to rational thought.

      What does “dismantling the infrastructure of terror” mean? What “infrastructure”? Roads? Bridges? Office buildings? Given the distinctly personal and low-tech nature of the acts characterized as “terror” in the Palestinian context, “dismantling the infrastructure of terror” sounds rather like tearing arms and legs off people.

      It was not surprising that Israel and the West never sought to be precise about what they had in mind, since the objective of insisting that negotiations could not be resumed until the “infrastructure of terror” was dismantled was never to stimulate any conceivable action on the Palestinian side but, rather, to justify inaction on the Israeli side — the avoidance of negotiations, which Ariel Sharon, with his unilateralist proclivities, was determined to avoid while building walls and fixing “permanent borders” as he saw fit.

      What was surprising was that the former Palestinian leadership did not point out the absurdity of this demand, choosing instead to issue public assurances that it would love to do so and would when it could, thereby implicitly accepting the Israeli and Western argument that the Palestinians, uniquely, have no right to resist occupation — reason enough (even if there were no others) for them to be voted out of office.

      Now that Hamas’s smashing election victory has rendered “dismantling the infrastructure of terror” moot, it appears that the “destruction of Israel” (already recited in the Western media virtually as though it formed part of Hamas’ name) will become the new catch phrase used to justify avoiding negotiations or even “talks”, as well as Israel’s withholding of Palestinian customs revenues, the West’s withholding of financial aid for Palestinian subsistence under occupation and a concerted effort to make the Palestinian people regret their flirtation with democracy and starve them into submission.

      It is therefore worth asking, early on, what wishing for the “destruction of Israel” actually means. The country’s land surface sinking beneath the waters of the Mediterranean? Not likely. All Israelis being “pushed into the sea”? Neither likely nor practical. The end of the current settler-colonial state structure, which discriminates, both in law and in practice, in favor of the immigrant ethnic group and against those members of the indigenous population who have not already been ethnically cleansed?

      People may in good faith believe that such state structures are a good thing and deserve to endure (or, uniquely, to endure in this one instance), but is it really “beyond the pale” to believe otherwise — particularly if one belongs to the people whose homeland has been conquered and occupied? Is anyone who believes that the transformation of the Arab land of Palestine into the Jewish state of Israel, necessarily involving the dispossession and dispersal of the Palestinian people, represents a great injustice that should be rectified, by virtue of so believing, so morally debased that they should not even be spoken with?

      When the South African liberation movement called for the replacement of their country’s settler-colonial, white-supremicist state structure by a fully democratic state, free of any form of discrimination based on race, religion or national origin and with equal rights for all who live there, this was not characterized as advocating the “destruction of South Africa” — except by the apartheid regime itself.. . .

      . . .

      Israel and the West appear to be gearing up to punish the Palestinian people for having achieved the Arab world’s first peaceful change of government through a genuinely democratic election (a truly breathtaking achievement), recycling the old mantra that “we will never talk with terrorists” (“never” having historically meant “until we wish to do so”).

      If Israel and the West were genuinely interested in peace, it would surely be wiser and more constructive to preemptively de-demonize Hamas (as the PLO was de-demonized when finally deemed convenient), to draw some enlightening conclusions from its election victory and to try, through engagement, to encourage it to adapt its aspirations and its quest for justice in a more positive and universally acceptable direction.”

        Yes, others showed more quality. The ones without much contact with foreigners and travelers, living in villages no different from 1000 years ago especially. Still untainted by the madness of euros and dollars to be gotten from the tourists, not yet crazed by the French women topless on their beaches as the muezzin called for modesty, and a million other clashes with a system of thought utterly alien to them.

        Case by case. Cannot generalize. Same w the Joos, the Mexicans, the Americans: some very good, some very bad, most somewhere in the middle, in mediocrity.

          How many times has Israel struck first over the decades? How many times has it been attacked by religious zealots.

            It is not I who have coined the “open-air concentration camp” comparison.

            Of coiurse it is not exact. But it is cose enough to get people’s attention for the horror of life in Gaza, in particular the lack of food, health care. total confinement, and uncertainty as to whether one’s home will be bombed on any particularly.

            BTW, you need to get your facts straight.

            Concentration camp was a camp for concentrating people in one place. Only later did some camps become death camps and labor camps, or a combo of same.

    I’m 77 years old, a Vietnam Era Veteran, a Desert Storm Veteran and I can tell you this is all a game. It only hurts little people. As a college student, I watched young boys and girls always take the side of the loser since they thought it might help. When they got their draft notice, it changed their minds. When people spit on them as they returned from Vietnam, it changed their minds. As I look back, the Vietnam War, Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Afghanistan were all a waste of money, time and precious lives. Where do we stand today with regards to these wars? It’s all money folks. Do some research on General Smedley Butler, War is a Racket. Israel isn’t clean on this escapade. There’s some great property to be occupied. The U.S. has a great history of keeping the economy going with wars enriching government officials and keeping the Military Industrial Complex running.
    As far as the folks from the Middle East go, well, there are of a different culture. They will never ever accept our way of life. They need to live within their own borders. We need a wall between them and us. After 911 our lives have been miserable with the Patriot Act. We needed that according to George W. Do you see a pattern? The more of these folks that come in, the more freedoms we lose.
    Will there be WWIII? I hope not. Sadly, we got a lot of covering up to do and do quickly. This latest BREAKING ALERT has removed the focus.
    The Powers to Be Do Not Worry About You or how comfortable you are today.
    As Americans, we need to do some serious soul searching. Don’t make fun of those who are out buying a gun today. They may be the one that protects your sorry ass tomorrow. Just think if the Israelis had guns in their homes last week.
    Many of you have grown up in a safe and secure environment. As an old guy, I’ve learned that life can be turned upside down in a day.

      Agreye 100%. Wag the Dog by the government is what has shaped the foreign policy since WW2.

      The MIC keeps this country going, economically. It has enabled the Deep State to take control and the totalitarian state to develop that we are witnessing today.

      An observation. The US has provoked, yes provoked a war every twenty years or so since its inception. Is this Wag the Dog? It is possible that the USA cannot hold itself together as a union without a war to “unify” it? Are we seeing the result of not having a war to depend on right now as we watch the country splinter and become more violent? Could be!!!!

    Many posters here decry US incursions into the affairs of other nations like Iraq, Vietnam, Libya, Ukraine, etc., and consider US actions in these cases to be evil and even terroristic in that they caused needless death and suffering on horrific scales only to serve the elites and the MIC, and they are right to do so.

    So, what many here seem to agree on is that on too many occasions we have been the Great Satan, the wolf in sheep’s clothing, the purveyor of chaos and mayhem across the world. But what about Israel and the Palestinians, why support our support of Israel if we are so debased, so vicious and so venal?

    Israel has been oppressing and suppressing the Palestinians for decades, and they’re sick and tired of being the chained up, beaten dog. Protests break out on college campuses, speaking out against the Israeli subjugation and humiliation of the Palestinians and, as above, they are right to do so. You say they’re supporting terrorists? Well, maybe they’re just against that Great Satan mentioned above and its Israeli pit bull always ready for the Palestinian jugular.

    What about the ‘terrorism’ of Macron who banned protesters supporting the Palestinians? What about Obama-Biden’s border policy allowing the US to be invaded by many possible terrorists? What about the terror of gun violence and the concatenation of drug cartels all across America? What about the ‘terrorism’ of our current government? You don’t like it, but you will go along with its support of Netanyahu and his Palestinian pulverizers.

    Here’s the Swamy who makes some good points:

    Ramaswamy accused Republicans of having “selective moral outrage” at the terrorist attacks by Hamas in Israel, and claimed that some who advocate a more forceful military response are swayed by financial incentives.

    “The selective nature of ignoring certain other conflicts—while even more importantly ignoring the interests of the U.S. right here at home—is what irritates the heck out of me, out of the politicians in both parties,” he told the former Fox News host on Monday, providing the armed conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan as one example.

    “It is shameful, and I think that there are, frankly, financial and corrupting influences that lead them exactly to speak the way they do. That’s just the hard truth.”

    The Swamy is slick like Obama; is his Trump like populism bedrock or on shifting sands? But yeah, US interests right here at home.

    Choose not to support the administration and aid to Ukraine and thus, implicitly at least, support Russia who wants to dominate a people that does not want Russian domination.

    Choose to support Israel and an administration you can hardly tolerate, and thus allow a possible genocide of the Palestinian people. Oh, you say, supporting Israel, that’s just the ‘strategic’ thing to do. ‘We can fight them over there, so we don’t have to fight them over here.’ Right, like 9/11.

    One can only hope that the powerful have the true, the right, moral compass. Good luck with that. The powerless, not subject to the same pressures and temptations, can more comfortably choose their morality while snugly ensconced in their Strato loungers as the big screen blares its inanities and contradictions, adding to the confusion and paranoia and making it more difficult to choose a moral option.

      Hmmm. Europe dumped its excess population that outgrew it resources into the New World for 400 years.

      The natives that were here were just pushed out of the way and the ones that violently protested were dealt with. America became America, the most powerful nation on earth by aggression and domination by Europeans. It has pulled others from the world up by their bootstraps by having an aggressive economy, European inspired. That is why they just keep coming.

      Israel is the same!!! Jews became the homeless of Europe after WW2. They got their act together and took Palestine away from the British and the Arabs. Just like the USA!!!

      What exactly do you thinks mainstream America would do if Native Americans or Blacks or Latinos started lobbing rockets at Red Zones? Look around, our governments are cowardly extensions of Soros et al and his servants in the Deep State. Israel has ten times the cojones the US does.

    Slightly off the topic at hand, but since it ties in to energy, which has a lot to do with why we are eager to get WWIII started, and food, which also has a lot to do with that, and Mr. Kunstler’s predictions in general I am putting this out there today.

    I have not read this man’s book yet.

    He starts the video pointing out that there are two things we consume every day, energy and food.

    He ties what the government has done to our food into inflation, because the high cost of things that people desperately need tend to get people riled up against their leaders.

    What they have done to our food ties into the obesity epidemic.

    I keep saying this, it isn’t that everybody decided to eat too much. It isn’t even that people are eating too much junk food. It’s that the food that they tell us we should be eating, much of that IS junk food.

    He says we have been gaslighted, purposely.

    He uses the phrase “recipe for metabolic destruction”.

    People keep telling me it’s a simple issue of calories in, calories out.

    Yes, if your metabolism isn’t shot.

    Anyway, he ties all this stuff together quite well.

      Yes, there are food deserts. (Or food desserts, if you will.) Poor people often don’t have access to good nutritional alternatives. But it’s still the combined ultra-processed fat/carb high-caloric, hyper-palatable junk that’s killing people.

    To all the folks who do not believe that Hamas is capable of atrocities.

    Do you remember ISIS, doing all the above atrocities on camera? Islam is turning human beings into murder machines with no morality. We have heard over and over that Islam is a religion of peace? Someone should tell the Shia side about that statement, Shia has always stood for Jihad and violence. Latest WH BS is trying to say that Iran is not involved with Hamas attacks. Nuts!!!!

    The US is no longer in any position to help Israel, we cannot even help ourselves anymore. So Israel will take care of business without US approval.

    Does the White House support Israel or Iran? Who knows? What difference does it make?

    IMHO, it is time for Israel to just obliterate the opposition, what and whoever that means. Hezbollah, Hamas, ISIS, whoever.

    BTW, have you seen the protests in this country?

        As always, I delight in our host’s use of language, even as he tells me what I really wish I didn’t have to hear.

        It may be impossible to know what has really happened in this latest debacle, at least not until it’s too late to respond differently. The wheels have been set in motion, and there is no stopping them now.

        Ignoring that for the moment, I think it might be illuminating to look at the behavior of the hordes of Muslims who have invaded Europe in recent years – the burning of churches, epidemics of rape (gleefully filmed and presented on social media) mob violence, attacks on civilians, priest’s throat cut while saying Mass, even (as I watched today) attacks on ambulances in Sweden – which has had at least one bomb set off every day in the last year. All that we have accomplished is to spread what was once a relatively localized and ongoing conflict to every place that was once at peace.

        I’ve seen, and I’m sure the rest of you have also,countless videos online of Muslims calling for jihad before shrieking mobs of followers in London, Paris, Vienna. This has gone on for years and it comes directly from their holy book, their “prophet,” their Sharia law. It doesn’t appear to emanate from fanatics or outliers, or to be the result of misinformation. Their holy book calls for it. I’ve read it; it’s a nasty piece of work. These are their entrenched beliefs and it would be foolish to think they don’t really believe them. They readily prove that by acting them out in every country that has welcomed them. The fact that they’re in a safe and welcoming environment, yet continue this behavior, speaks for itself.

        We now have, in our midst, at our invitation, a vast number of people, many here illegally, who feel emboldened to tell us how much they hate us. I would be inclined to give them a ticket to anyplace that will take them. I also take note of the fact that none of their Muslim neighbors whose borders are nearby will accept any Palestinians. Apparently they’ve noticed something that we have not.

        So – I consider the latest outrage, whether it’s fake or real, to nevertheless be in keeping with the way that followers of Islam have behaved in civilised places where they’ve been safe and welcomed. I’m not sure about any of the rest of this, but I think their religion is toxic. It’s certainly not a set of beliefs that can exist within either Christian or post-Christian countries.

        • Jarek October 14, 2023 at 1:09 am #

          Who let the Islam into our nations? Who pressured us and taught us to hate ourselves this much? Who disparages the very concept of nations?

          Who do you blame, the vicious dog who bites you or the owner who let it out so it could?

          • Rowdypiglet October 14, 2023 at 10:52 am #

            @Jarek, I think it’s pretty clear who let them in. But now that they’re here, we have to do something with them and about them. I hope it will be something sane and civilized, but I honestly have no idea what that would be. It would require good will, honesty, realism, wisdom, and discernment, all of which are in short supply. My own supply of each is obviously very limited.

            The Muslims who have been welcomed into the Western world have been made use of by the usual suspects, and we know what they do with those whose usefulness has come to an end. I don’t hate them in the least, but I think it’s being proven we can’t live together.

            Everything I’ve seen in recent years has supported the reality that humans are tribal in nature. A few enlightened people choose their tribe and are able to get past their hardwiring. Most, however, revert to their hardwired settings as soon as they feel threatened. This experiment in multiculturalism has been an epic failure and is coming to an end. I just hope there will be something left when it’s all over.

          • Soul Forensics October 14, 2023 at 2:49 pm #

            After their recruitment to, and set up, in Europe, the Muslims never even tried to assimilate in (i.e.) France or Sweden. And what would assimilation even mean? We know. Concessions and ‘education adjustment’.

            The Left whined relentlessly about the “unwelcoming” French, but the ‘new citizens’ didn’t want anything to do with the ‘corrupt’ West, so they kept to their enclaves (or ‘ghettoes’, as the hysterical university students called them), bred, and lived complacently off the dole.

            Multiculturalism was always a top-down implementation. The political class don’t care. They have their own enclaves that don’t touch with the outsiders, whether native plebe White or newly minted Other.

            The only solution won’t be forthcoming any time soon, since it’s the abolishment of the existing political system and its replacement by some form of aristocratic leadership based on race and culture.

    “I’d go so far to predict that well before the 2024 election, America will have a new chief executive and that it won’t be Kamala Harris. It could be someone in a uniform, though. Just sayin’.”

    The neocon/neolib (otherwise known as the “Uniparty”) Deep State uses politicians as their proxies at home, and nations, like Ukraine, as their proxies abroad.

    The problem with a military government in the US, is that it gets the elite too engaged. There isn’t any cover or middlemen for the US public to blame for inevitable failure.

    When Biden fails in Afghanistan, or Ukraine– the public blames the Biden government, but not the dozens of US Intel agencies, or the arms manufacturers (or their lobbyists), or the Pentagon, or the neocon “think tanks” which promote all this imperialism (or their lobbyists).

    No. I don’t think a general will assume domestic command.

  45. Paula D October 13, 2023 at 3:49 pm #

    Hyperbole doesn’t help either side.
    Claiming that 40 babies were beheaded is ridiculous on its face. Why would there be 40 babies in a small settlement, just for starters?

    But calling Gaza a concentration camp, or an open air prison, is also ridiculous.
    I just heard today that out of those 2.5 million people living there, 1 million are children.
    Open air prison? Clearly it must have very generous conjugal visitation policies, then.

    I used to watch Democracy Now, and Amy Goodman is extremely pro-Palestinian.
    Back then, she always called Gaza a refugee camp. OK, my internal picture of a refugee camp includes people living in tents, and lining up for water and food.

    But then she would show video of Gaza, and it was clearly a city, not a refugee camp. A city with electricity, food shops, and running water, to boot.
    So apparently, they’ve changed the rhetoric, to “prison”, but it is still ridiculous.

    And the constant claims of ”genocide” are equally ridiculous.
    Maybe the Cornucopians around here believe that 70 years of “genocide” turns 250,000 people into 2.5 million.
    Why not? They think that 50 years of worldwide “genocide” turns 3.5 billion people into 8 billion people.
    They aren’t clear on the concept, or the math.

    But it is eye-rolling to have to read rhetoric like that.

    This seems to be an insolvable problem. I am not a Cornupocian, so I can see that there are too many people, and not enough land involved in this dispute.

    I do think that the two state solution should be enforced, with Israel going back to its pre-1967 borders.

    Do I think that will work? I doubt it.

    There are violent criminals on both sides of this fight, as we have seen for the last week.
    Why take sides? A pox on both their houses.

    The grown-up countries seem to be taking charge now, though.
    Iran is refusing to take the bait, and even Saudi Arabia is far more rational than either the US or Israel.
    If this can be resolved, the rational countries will do it, led, as usual, by Russia.

    • Amman October 13, 2023 at 5:01 pm #

      Russia and China will not resolve it all but they do contribute something towards justice to their credit. There are also a lot of American and European peoples who contribute towards justice but only as individuals or small organizations. The DC state itself, and much of the Euro BLOB, is strictly “media-line” or goes out of its way to adhere to the media-line – God bless ’em.

      The one who will resolve the Palestine-Zionism struggle I believe is the ISLAMIC-ARAB World. Justice is the criteria and key that will find the winning formula.

        They all use the Palestinians to keep their own populations distracted. They are all allied with the US.

        The best chances are Iran (non-Arab), and Saudi Arabia, imo, and maybe Egypt and Syria.

        • Amman October 14, 2023 at 5:55 pm #

          The countries of Lebanon and Syria and Iraq are interested in Justice for Palestine. I should also add the friends of the Islamic-Arab World that are in (East/west) Europe, Asia and Africa.

          But the Islamic-Arab World itself, this is about 50 countries and all of them have active individuals and organizations whose influence and impact is after a gradual, slow and accumulative process.

          if Saudi Arabia suddenly transforms into a resistance country, (meaning the Leadership and not the people…) then the pressure and clout of the IA WORLD grows substantially.

            I agree that these things do add up. Do you think that the people of Syria have forgotten?

      Prison is a misnomer for Gaza.

      Refugee camp also. Gaza actually contains a couple of refugee camps.

      The idea that Gaza was a “gift” to the Palestinians is obscene.

      For a history of the Gaza Strip,


      “. . . During the 1948 war that established the state of Israel, the Israeli military bombed 29 villages in southern Palestine, leading tens of thousands of villagers to flee to the Gaza Strip, under the control of the Egyptian army that were deployed after Israel declared independence. Most of them and their descendants remain there today.

      Following the 1967 Six-Day War between Israel and its Arab neighbors, the Gaza Strip came under Israeli military occupation. The occupation has resulted in “systematic human rights violations,” according to rights group Amnesty International, including forcing people off their land, destroying homes and crushing even nonviolent forms of political dissent.. . .

      About one third of Gaza’s inhabitants trace their family’s roots to land inside the Gaza Strip. The remaining two-thirds are refugees from the 1948 war and their descendants, many of whom hail from towns and villages surrounding Gaza.

      The Palestinians of Gaza trend young: nearly half the population is under 18. The enclave is also very poor, with a poverty rate that stands at 53 percent.

      Despite this grim economic picture, education levels are quite high. Over 95 percent of Gazan children ages 6-12 are in school. The majority of Palestinian students in Gaza graduate from high school, and 57 percent of students at the prestigious Islamic University of Gaza [which was hit by Israeli air strikes on Wednesday] are female. . . .
      a World Bank survey earlier this year found 71 percent of Gazans show signs of depression and high levels of PTSD.

      There are several factors that contribute to these conditions. A major factor is the crippling, 16-year blockade that Israel and Egypt – with U.S. support – have imposed on Gaza.

      Years of Blockade

      Shortly after the 2006 elections, the Bush administration tried to force Hamas from power and bring in a rival leader from the Fatah party who was considered friendlier to Israel and the U.S. Hamas preempted the coup and took full control of Gaza in May 2007. In response, Israel and Egypt – with U.S. and European support – closed the border crossings into and out of the Gaza Strip and imposed a land, air and sea blockade.

      The blockade, which is still in effect, limits the import of food, fuel and construction material; limits how far Gaza’s fishermen can go out to sea; bans almost all exports; and imposes strict limitations on the movement of people into and out of Gaza. In 2023, Israel has allowed only around 50,000 people a month to exit Gaza, according to U.N. figures. . . .

      [[[good, detailed map Map by the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs of the Gaza–Israel barrier in 2019. (Wikimedia Commons, Public domain)]]

      The years of closure have devastated the lives of Palestinians in Gaza. Inhabitants there don’t have enough water for drinking and sanitation. They face electricity cuts that run 12-to-18 hours each day. Without adequate water and electricity, Gaza’s fragile health care system is “on the brink of collapse,” according to the medical rights group Medical Aid for Palestine.

      These restrictions hit the young and the weak of Gaza particularly hard. Israel routinely denies sick patients the permits they need to receive medical care outside of Gaza. Bright students with scholarships to study abroad often find that they are unable to leave.

      U.N. experts say this blockade is illegal under international law. They argue that the blockade amounts to a collective punishment of the Palestinians of Gaza, a violation of the Hague Convention and the Geneva Conventions that form the backbone of international law. . ..[more]”

      BTW, if Israel can build a perimeter fence to keep Gazans in (see map at the link) I see no reason why the USA can’t build a perimeter fence on its southern border.

        Gaza could have been a peaceful thriving place by now if only the Palestinians accepted Israel’s right to exist and dropped their fanatical desire to kill Jews. Why in the world should Israel not defend itself? Why should they willingly yield their sovereignty to people that hate Jews? Was not the 1st holocaust enough for the Jewish community to endure? Must they suffer another? Muslims do not assimilate into non-Muslim cultures, and they hold particular animosity towards Jews,

        Yes Israel was the ancestral land of the Palestinians. It was also the ancestral land of the Jews. The two groups were incompatible, a war ensued, and the Palestinians lost.

      Excellent comment, Paula. All good points. When I visited the area, many Palestinians worked in Israel and were happy about it. Good wages, they could save, build a house back in the village. Like Guatemalans here, a bit.

      Then came the prophets of jihad, the suicide vests and all that. No more jobs. Many of the murdered recently were Thais and Nepalis now working the farms and factories.

      Russia seems the most intelligent, calm yet firm power right now.

      I’m trying to understand how some sources, such as Automatic Earth and Moon of Alabama, so useful and impartial when analyzing the Ukraine fiasco, have now gone full foam in the mouth kill-the-jews crazy.

      Tectonic plates shifting.

      Yet Russia, that most rational of nations, never supported Hamas, or Hezbollah for that matter. Their diplomatic finesse is well known, and generally they call for peace and dialog. Same peace and dialog they wanted to have with Ukraine until it became impossible thanks to US-NATO.

    “… kicking off that third world war we’ve been hearing about all our lives…”

    Humans have a fairly universal fear of death. We know it’s coming. We know there’s nothing we can do about it. And so, people adopt a doom fatalism and a powerless empty feeling that is appeased only by strong faith or a really colorful NDE experience.

    So, given the foundational fear of dying we harbor in our minds… we then externalize that fear to the Outer World and we eagerly anticipate some big orgasmic death climax for the human race.

    What a colossal waste of time and energy that could be put to more beneficial and pleasant thoughts and deeds. But then, the human race is not the brightest bulbs in the Cosmos.

    “ The world is periodically subject to a mighty release of tensions.”

    That’s good, because we just can’t wait to get all tensed and charged up again about more stuff. If we didn’t release some tension every so often we would just explode internally and then we would miss the big orgasmic climax of some fools blowing up the Earth as we’ve all been conditioned to think. And that some even want… anticipating it like some folks look forward to a good meal.

    Much of humanity is a self-hating species. Humans who hate other humans… and even themselves. No other critter on Earth does that as well as human beings.

    “This degenerate nonsense has run its course.”

    Not for all the many folks who have adopted Wokeism as their new religion and default lifestyle. They won’t give that up because they CAN’T give that up. It has become their personal identity and reason for living.

    “ Yet to play out is America’s crisis of leadership.”

    United States Incorporated has not have ‘Leadership’ for generations. Leaders… LEAD. We have nothing but bought-and-paid-for lackey and fetch-boys-and-girls who lead nothing but their noses deeply into the Public Trough… and then a few other places as well.

    “I’d go so far to predict that well before the 2024 election, America will have a new chief executive and that it won’t be Kamala Harris. It could be someone in a uniform, though.”

    And still, nothing will change. The roadmap set for us by the Dark Siders will move right along as scheduled. And a once-great Nation will look back and wonder… where did it all go wrong. And why did we let it happen.

    Halloween Day of 2023 will be nothing compared to the Nightmares that we have already been living with in our Age of Agony.

        This may be true. But I doubt that the reason is ‘hate’ for them. You have to have an elevated (?!) level of thinking and reasoning to truly hate. Animals might kill their own out of instinct or rivalry or some other driver. But it’s not likely to be ‘hate’.

        Only beings of higher intelligence can ‘hate’… as odd as that sounds. That’s why it’s such a mis-use of such higher intelligence to choose to use it that way.

    Get Ready, Because The U.S. Is Going To War In The Middle East…
    – Michael Snyder

    We are on the precipice of a major regional war in the Middle East, and the U.S. military is going to be involved.  Of course if this war was just limited to a fight between Israel and Hamas, there would be no need for the U.S. military to intervene, because the IDF can handle Hamas quite easily.  But Hezbollah is another matter entirely.  Hezbollah possesses an extremely powerful military, and they have an arsenal of approximately 130,000 missiles ready to be fired at Israel.  If Hezbollah enters the war and starts firing thousands upon thousands of missiles at Israel, the United States will take action.

    Unfortunately, we are already dangerously close to that point.  Hezbollah has not formally entered the war yet, but clashes along Israel’s northern border have been happening for four consecutive days…

    “Cross-border violence between Lebanon and Israel has escalated into a fourth day, pushing many Lebanese in southern towns to leave as Hezbollah and the Israeli military continue to trade fire.

    Hezbollah said it fired precision missiles on an Israeli position across from the Lebanese town of Dharya on Wednesday, drawing retaliatory Israeli shelling that has left a number of houses damaged.”

    Once Israel launches a ground operation inside Gaza, I believe that Hezbollah will formally enter the war shortly thereafter.

    But it appears that Hezbollah is not just gearing up to fight Israel.  In fact, they have issued a statement declaring the U.S. to be a “full partner” in the conflict with Hamas…

    “Hezbollah issues a statement saying the United States is a ‘full partner’ of Israeli ‘aggression’ on the Gaza Strip. Hezbollah also says that it holds the United States fully responsible for the airstrikes that are killing civilians in Gaza.”

    I cannot comprehend how you non-believers in Jesus Christ of Nazareth can continue to witness His Word fulfilled yet also continue your march to Hell. D’uh!

    I suggest that you get right with God and right quick for the sake of your eternal soul.

      That did change my thinking. I thought the Global Elite – largely Jewish in the West, particularly the Anglosphere, loved their genetic people – but apparently not. They’re just like our White Elite are in relation to us. Seeing as Lab rats.

      Classic National Socialism and the later White Nationalism seems to have been wrong about this. Yes, the Rothschilds were influential in the founding of Israel – but may well have done so for their own purposes, the better to continue to hide behind the Jewish people.

      Of course all the issues between us and them can’t easily be brushed aside because of this as Alba seemed to suggest. The Talmud says what it says after all. The Satanists turned out to be bigger and stronger in the end but that doesn’t negate lesser issues and evils. Not unless people can just drop their beliefs in favor of the Truth. How many can do that?

      The Neo-Traditionalist, Evola, got it right. His viewpoint always seemed equivocal to us, but it turns out that it was the subtlety able to discern a deeper evil behind all of the more outer evils of Talmudism, Zionism, Masonry, and in the end, the Church itself. Directing them, using them until such a time as they would no longer be needed.

        “[…} as Alba seemed to suggest.”

        Remind us of what ‘Alba’ actually said.

        Astor, Bundi, Collins, DuPont, Li, Kennedy, Rothschild, Rockefeller, Freeman, Onassis, Russell, Van Duyn, Merovingians.

        How many of those are Jewish?

        I think you’ll find that’s what I said.

        seemed to suggest‘ – nice double nothingburger. Doesn’t really commit you to anything, does it? But it shoehorns in some suggestion.

        The ‘cabal’ or whatever you want to call it, ‘appears to be’ largely Anglo-American, whatever and wherever those dynasties grew from. If one Chinese dynasty doesn’t make the ‘cabal’ Chinese, then a couple (?) of Jewish families wouldn’t make it Jewish, would it?

        And I don’t ‘seem to suggest’ anything about any of them. Not my research, so I wouldn’t know.

        What I do know is that the average ordinary Jewish person (whether Semitic or Turkic) has nothing whatever to do with the machinations of the Rothschilds, any more than the average British person has anything to do with the machinations of the Windsors/Saxe-Coburg Gothas/Black Guelphs.

        • GreenAlba October 14, 2023 at 7:53 am #

          Other notions I have come across recently and of which I have no real knowledge:

          1. The modern state of Israel has no connection whatever with the Israel of biblical prophecy (I think this is the position of Orthodox Jews as well?). Although TBH that notion is not at all new to me – I’ve just never delved into it. That obviously doesn’t either excuse attacks on Israeli civilians or say anything about the inhumane policies of the Israeli government towards the Palestinians.

          2. You mentioned Koestler’s book about the Kazarians, which I haven’t read, but might at some point. Apparently several recent DNA surveys by reputable Israeli academics have demonstrated that no less than 97% of Israelis are not of Semitic origin, and therefore have no historical/geographical connection with biblical Israel (or Judah). The Kazarians seem to heve been converts to Judaism (for reasons of expediency), which seems no different from people anywhere in the world being converts to Christianity (without making any comparison of motives).

          Perhaps the post-WWII refugee state would have been more appropriately planted, not in Palestine – and certainly not in Madagascar – but where Kazaria used to be. But it would still have been encircled by hostile peoples. There would still have been a problem of people being anti-Jewish (but not, technically, anti-‘semitic’, since the origin of the Kazarians appears to be Turkic). But we are where we are. They are where they are. And it would be good if the ‘hidden hand’ that’s stirring the pot to create WWIII could be cut off. But that’s very unlikely.

          Well I didn’t want to put words in your mouth and I didn’t have your exact quote. But obviously, my attempt at being polite has earned me no goodwill, your mendacity being what it is.

          One time the Queen and her retinue were walking and they came upon a party of high finance Jews going the other way. The Jews didn’t bow. They knew the score: The Queen and all that was the past. They were the future, and secretly, the present. The two groups just looked at each other and passed.

          It was more cut and dried over here. Astor et al turned us over to the Rothschilds with the Federal Reserve Act. Read Griffin’s “The Creature from Jekyll Island”.

          At some point in the 19th Century, the Church mixed its finances with the Rothschilds. Extraordinary. Even as the Popes were writing against the Masons and even sometimes, the Jews. Some piece of crap just betrayed them? Or did the Hierarchy know – and just didn’t think it mattered? Didn’t connect the “dots”?

          They’re on top in the West, Alba. But again, they’re serving something beyond themselves as Evola says. And that being or force wants things that aren’t good for the Jewish people. Their ethnic solidarity and subsequent nepotism helped get them to the top, but It doesn’t care about that.

          Where Kazaria used to be? That’s the Ukraine, I believe.

          David Duke said something interesting that I have heard elsewhere: Iraq is sacred to them because that’s where the Talmud was written. Babylon. The Land between the Rivers. I like to have more than one source, but he is an advanced student of these matters.

    “Before the attacks, it felt like we were finally starting to see a movement of people who were unified against that enemy within. We didn’t agree on everything and there was still discussion to be had on issues, but we largely shared the sentiment in that we knew basically every government across the world was captured and apart of the same anti-human agenda, we knew they were willfully harming and killing people with the vaccine and other measures, and we knew they were lying to us constantly throughout.

    After the attack, 9/11 brain has stricken many and we’re back to arguing over what narratives we trust, what people we should listen to, which authority is the good guy and the bad guy, and who we should support in enacting revenge on the perpetrators of the Hamas attack, instead of asking the obvious questions like

    “How did Israel fail to protect it’s people exactly?”

    “Who does this benefit in the end?”

    “What could this be distracting us from?”

    How was Hamas was able to ride into the country on bulldozers, boats, paragliders, and trucks, spend several hours killing civilians and capturing them as hostages, to then drive out of the country with said hostages with no contact from the Israeli military? Does no one notice how absurd this sounds?

    It’s one of the best militaries in the world with the world super power of the United States behind it, and somehow they dropped the ball this badly and allowed their people to be killed? The exact same questions were asked on 9/11, and we were met with the same ridicule for asking them, to only find out years later they knew the attack was coming and let it happen for the war plans that made long in advance.”

    EU envoy paraglides off Gaza to show freedom ‘is the way forward’

    “Video posted online by the European Union Delegation to the Palestinians showed Sven Kühn von Burgsdorff floating off a sandy 7 metre (21 foot) cliff and over the Mediterranean sea after an initial struggle to fill his canopy with enough wind.

    The impoverished and congested Gaza Strip is kept under a cordon by Israel and Egypt designed to isolate the ruling Islamist militant group Hamas.

    A small airport inaugurated in 1998 during interim peace talks was destroyed three years later by Israeli forces, which regularly intercept rockets, drones and even flammable material-carrying balloons launched by Palestinians across the border.

    “Once you have a free Palestine, a free Gaza, you can do exactly the same thing,” Von Burgsdorff, who is wrapping up his tenure, said in the video. A spokesperson for the EU office in Jerusalem, involved in the flight said it took place on Sunday.

    “And that’s the reason why I did this. To show you the way forward. We’ll work for it, okay?” Von Burgsdorff adds.

    The paraglider belongs to the envoy, the spokesperson said, suggesting he managed to bring it past border security thanks to his diplomatic immunity.”

        There’s a reason why western armies ended the practice of mass Airborne assaults like the Germans used in Cyprus and the Allies employed in the ‘Market Garden’ campaign. After the Cypriot invasion German paratroopers, under the command of Goering, fought as infantry. Same in the Allied armies; after Market Garden Airbourne units served as a sort of Special Forces accompanying armor & infantry.

        The fact is paratroopers were easily shot out of the sky by rifle fire. Casualties were excessive. The practice was abandoned.

      “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, woodcut print from the Apocalypse of Albrecht Dürer (1497–1498), Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe” ~ Wikipedia, entry, Eschatology

      “Eschatology (/??sk??t?l?d?i/ ?; from Ancient Greek ??????? (éskhatos) ‘last’, and -logy) concerns expectations of the end of the present age, human history, or the world itself. The end of the world or end times is predicted by several world religions (both Abrahamic and non-Abrahamic), which teach that negative world events will reach a climax. Belief that the end of the world is imminent is known as apocalypticism, and over time has been held both by members of mainstream religions and by doomsday cults. In the context of mysticism, the term refers metaphorically to the end of ordinary reality and to reunion with the divine. Various religions treat eschatology as a future event prophesied in sacred texts or in folklore.” ~ Wikipedia

    Asymmetric warfare (or asymmetric engagement) is a type of war between belligerents whose relative military power, strategy, or tactics differ significantly. This type of warfare often, but not necessarily, involves insurgents or resistance movement militias who may have the status of unlawful combatants against a standing army.

    Asymmetrical warfare can also describe a conflict in which belligerents’ resources are uneven, and consequently, they both may attempt to exploit each other’s relative weaknesses. Such struggles often involve unconventional warfare, with the weaker side attempting to use strategy to offset deficiencies in the quantity or quality of their forces and equipment. Such strategies may not necessarily be militarized. This is in contrast to symmetrical warfare, where two powers have comparable military power, resources, and rely on similar tactics…

    The term is frequently used to describe what is also called guerrilla warfare, insurgency, counterinsurgency, rebellion, terrorism, and counterterrorism.” ~ Wikipedia

      Asymmetric war is also referred to as Total War, as it puts everything “on the table,” as the proud US Chicken Hawks love to say.

      But as governments now go to war with entire societies, life styles, and basic ways of life, Asymmetric does make a certain twisted sense. For all the hand wringing about governments’ attempt at genocide, who’s doing it and why, it’s quite often the underlying impulse in most, if not all, wars; so much so that it’s usually the civilian populations themselves calling for it the loudest.

      So I ask myself if there is any conclusion I can reach about which I feel any certainty, and I then (try to) refrain from speculating about anything outside of that.

    President Joe Biden made a bold statement on Tuesday, saying that America will soon be a “minority white country.”

    “We are going to be a minority white country in the future,” Biden said during a speech at the White House. “That’s just the way the demographics work out.”

    No, Biden, you and the Obama clan are working out the demographics with the open border.

    ‘Biden’s viewpoint on the influx of immigrants has been consistent. In a 2015 statement, he recognized the continuous migration to the U.S., saying, “Persistent immigration will soon make White individuals a relative minority in the country. This shouldn’t be viewed negatively; in fact, it’s a testament to our nation’s strength.”

      BRICS++ includes Iran and Saudi Arabia as of the last BRICS++ global conference. Shia and Sunni leadership together, hmmmm.

      Two mobs starting to go to blows. Russia and China are very quiet about the Israel war, although Blinken is trying to get them involved, politically.

      Is this War an early volley of the BRICS++, WEF war? Israel is primarily European, eastern and does represent the West in the Middle East. Western stability, in the USA and WEF PTB eyes.

      Will the US get involved if Israel starts to lose to an ongoing Arab onslaught? Or will Europe get involved? How is Turkey going to fit in?

      Will this turn into a Muslim – Judea-Christian world war?

      This is not a cerebral war that may be coming, but a blood and guts war uncontrollable by DC. If the USA gets involved, I hope OG and his country are ready to take all the US dissidents along with the Latter day immigrants that will desert this ship by the millions.

      This could blow up into a world conflagration very easily.

    “A diversionary foreign policy, or a diversionary war, is an international relations term that identifies a war instigated by a country’s leader in order to distract its population from their own domestic strife. The concept stems from the Diversionary War Theory, which states that leaders who are threatened by domestic turmoil may initiate an international conflict in order to improve their standing.” ~ Wikipedia

    From the Twitter/X account of Haaretz.com:

    “Anyone who wants to thwart the establishment of a Palestinian state has to support bolstering Hamas and transferring money to Hamas,” Netanyahu told his Likud party’s Knesset members in March 2019. “This is part of our strategy”

      When I try to post links, I notice that the post often doesn’t go through, so I’ll just say that my own view what is happening in the western side of the Middle East right now is pretty much mirrored by what Australian writer Caitlin Johnstone is writing about it on her Substack and Twitter/X accounts.

      • Beryl of Oyl October 14, 2023 at 9:15 am #

        Since you mentioned Ms. Johnstone, I was just thinking about her the other day.

        She’s someone I often don’t agree with, but I like to read her stuff now and then to keep my mind sharp and see where people with opposing ideas may have a point.

        Anyway, she wrote a column about how we were going to see the word “unprovoked” in the media a lot, as it related to the situation in Ukraine.

        Remember Ukraine? That was a long time ago in terms of the MSM.

        She put out a tweet reminding people that she was right, after some world body or other admitted that it was always about NATO, NATO being what provoked Russia.

        People on her feed kept arguing that Russia had no justification for invading another country, and she just kept repeating her tweet in response.

        It was clear that some people do not know what the word “provocation” even means. They conflate it with rights or good reasons or something.

        That’s a ghetto mentality.

        Caitlin never said Russia had any sort of right to invade another country.

          Get ready for a comeback of “asymmetrical warfare”.

          Yeah, that’s the hope for any side — that they inflict the most casualties, while minimizing their own. Tends to shorten the battle/war, and, ironically for the naive pacifist commentariat, save more lives.

    Ancient sleezebag Kissinger publicly laments Europe’s mass immigration of “refugees” as a “grave mistake”.

    This only comes after pro-Palestinian manifestations in his native Germany.

    Hitherto he was fine with it.

    When it was only the native Germans experiencing the degradation of their society and values. Experiencing hate at home.

    Only now, witnessing the animosity to the Jewish people does he pay attention. Does he dare.

    It is only their problem when it’s their problem.
    Not when it’s your problem.

    Until BLM, antifa, and the flash mobs target them, their people, their culture, directly will they dare show concern.

    This is the precedent always set.
    It ONLY matters when it’s my people suffering.
    Not the others
    Not the ordinary

      Of course. This is the way it has always been and the world is simply reverting to the mean. The last half century was an anomaly brought about largely by an artificial abundance discussed/analyzed/debated many times on this forum. In the White countries, this abundance created a mental sickness among a percentage of the people: the self-loathing guilt ridden eunuch. The absurd globalist project is the macro manifestation of this pathology. End of the day though, especially when confronted with an existential threat, blood will always be thicker than water. I personally get a kick out of the morality debate re: Gaza because this is simply tribal war for which the only morality is survival of the tribe. Hamas took their shot and now they will get the bill.

      • OG October 14, 2023 at 2:05 pm #

        “Hamas took their shot and now [the innocent citizens of Gaza] will get the bill.”

        That, of course, is war crime.

        • King of Comedy October 14, 2023 at 2:22 pm #

          All war has (and always has had) a strong element of crime in it. The concept of war crimes though is right up there with the concept of white supremacy or settler colonialism, all deep thoughts that will have the staying power of a fart in the wind in the coming world of survival or extinction.
          As I said, reversion to the mean.

    Kathmandu, Nepal – Prabesh Bhandari’s dream seemed within reach at the age of 24. He wanted to save money to build a house for his family in Salyan district, Nepal. And he had been invited to join a competitive cohort of aspiring agriculture professionals in Israel.

    He had calculated that after room and board, he would save close to 1.1 million Nepalese rupees (around $8,275) after a year in Israel. But the unprecedented October 7 attack by the Palestinian armed group Hamas in southern Israel near the Gaza Strip meant that death came to him before his first salary.

    “It had been less than a month since he had travelled to Israel and just over three weeks since he had started his work,” his aunt Sobha Sejwal told Al Jazeera over the phone.

    His relatives say Prabesh left for Israel on September 12 and four days later, was assigned his first task – to pluck and harvest pomelo. On the eve of his death, his parents were waiting in his aunt’s house to talk to him, but he was unavailable and later messaged Sejwal: “I am too tired, I came home and did my chores and I dozed off.”

    On October 7, he and nine other Nepali trainees in the batch of 17 working in the same farm, were dead. Four others were injured and one is still missing. It wasn’t until the day after that Prabesh’s family heard the news of the attack on the radio. Then, a friend of Prabesh’s from Israel called to tell them that he had been killed in the attack.”


    Virginia School Board Member Opposes Moment Of Silence For Victims Of Hamas Attack

    ““We often sympathize with and humanize the side that we relate to, the side that looks more like us which our biases guide us towards.”


    Is Ms. Omeish still right? Are the Nepali students wrong in retracting their statement of support for the organization that killed some kids who looked like them? Are they foolishly trying to humanize the victims?

    • Disaffected October 14, 2023 at 9:30 am #

      What are statements of support or condemnation anyway, other than more useless virtue signaling?

      I’m far more interested in knowing what’s really going on here, and I’m pretty damn sure it’s not what we’re being led to believe.

    Basic question… If it’s all about the globalists these days, why is global power divided between West and East maybe more distinctly and evenly than ever before?

    • Disaffected October 14, 2023 at 10:19 am #

      I doubt the globalists would even agree with the premise of your question. But why? I guess the east ain’t all that enrapt by the idea of a globalism imposed on them by a few western war hawks and their bankster/shyster elite. Smells a lot like colonialism 2.0. Not to mention that the western version is crumbling due to its MANY own internal contradictions.

        Our Leaders became enraged when they realized that China was National Socialist for real. They weren’t going to betray China for money.

        My father offered our Chinese neighbor some tomatoes. He accepted. My father offered him more and he refused, saying, “I have my own.”

        Why did he take them the first time? Politeness, maybe?

        • Anthea October 15, 2023 at 3:13 pm #

          Sometimes you have ripe tomatoes earlier than your neighbors–sometimes MUCH earlier. I, for example, am always the first one anywhere around to get ripe tomatoes. I think I even beat the market gardeners with their high tunnels. They are still selling tomatoes they bought at the Amish produce auction, where the growers are a bit further south–or even sometimes hot-house tomatoes, which are disgusting. Part of the reason they don’t sell them earlier is because the earliest tomatoes tend to be rather small and unimpressive. Customers want big red beefsteak-type tomatoes, so that’s what the market gardeners grow.

          Your Chinese neighbor’s tomatoes probably just came on and ripened later than yours. This could be because your father started his tomatoes earlier, set them out earlier, or chose earlier varieties. Or it could be that your father’s soil is better, or his garden’s micro-climate is better–perhaps in a more sheltered spot or on a slight southerly incline–or that the Chinese neighbor’s yard has too much shade, etc., etc.

    I feel sorry for JHK. He knows so much, but has to dance around the essential core truth … who rules America and the West?

    • Amman October 14, 2023 at 12:42 pm #

      I reckon the USA and EU are ruled by organizations and/or Institutions.

      And the People who manage, control and/or have a stake in those organizations and institutions.

      If this is true, it is helpful to ask which key organizations rule Europe and the USA.

      Rule: Control of or dominion over an area or people.
      Explicit regulation or principle governing conduct or procedure.
