      The White House, Christmas Eve, 2023. Imagine the painfully lugubrious scene….

     “Joe Biden” rattles around in the upstairs “residence” like a BB in a packing crate. Nobody is around besides a few secret service agents, so still at their posts they might as well be statuary. The Big Guy is all alone. His spouse, Dr. Jill, had enough of pretend caretaking quite a while ago, and flew off to Oprah’s place in Santa Barbara for counseling and commiseration. Hunter is Gawd-knows-where doing Gawd-knows-what.

     “JB” shuffles out of the residence kitchen, where he just demolished a half gallon of Ben & Jerry’s Americone Dream® ice cream, against his doctor’s orders. His gall bladder writhes in revolt, sending a distress signal up the vagus nerve to the shriveled hypothalamus in his brain. A jumbled fugue of emotions — rage, fear, sexual arousal — quickens his step as he navigates by dead reckoning to the executive bedroom where he hurries to bed and falls into leaden slumber — only to be awakened by a cacophony of ringing bells. His eyelids roll open like shades in the windows of a skid row hotel room. Plangent moaning resounds as a mist emerges through the bedroom door and resolves into a mysterious figure garbed in the raiment of the Ku Klux Klan.

      “Joe Biden” shrinks under the luxury Boll & Branch signature duvet— acquired when the agriculture minister of Ukraine slipped him an envelope stuffed with 100 hryvnia notes. The spirit wails something that resembles the old Confederate anthem Eatin’ Goober Peas.

     “Who are you spirit?” the quaking president asks.

     “Why, I am your old pard from the Senate,” the ghost of Robert Byrd declares, removing the pointed hood to reveal his leonine head of hair and scowling face. “Why have you thrown our sacred borders wide open, suh? I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels.”

     “Y-y-you don’t uh-uh-understand,” “JB” says, his childhood stutter returning. “They are muh-muh-migrants from oppression and vuh-vuh-very fine people.”

     “Fine people, my ass,” the former Senator from West Virginia cries and clears the dust of the sepulcher from his throat. “I will send three spirits to you this night as a review of what has been and what shall become, so beware….” And with that the spirit returns to mist and slips back out through the keyhole. . . .

      “Joe Biden” is shocked from slumber again as an attractive blond female ghost floats through the bedroom window.

      “Don’t I know you?” he asks.

      “Cad! That is the very line you used to pick me up on spring break in Nassau, 1966,” says “JB’s” first wife, Neilia Hunter. “Shall I show you the meretricious spectacle you made of our family after that truck driver on Limestone Road ended my life and your little daughter’s too!”

      “No-o-o-o-o,” the president moans, but is magically transported to the Wilmington Hospital room where his banged-up boys, Beau and Hunter, are recovering from their injuries. A TV crew is present as “JB” emotes for the camera, a cruel victim of fate, he blubbers, who will yet conquer his grief and go on to forty years of electoral victories and the sedulous gathering of tribute from “donors” far and wide to soften the blow of his loss. The room dims….

      He wakes up startled to a thunderation of rap music. An African American giant sits on a gilded throne with a 40 oz bottle of Colt 45 in one huge hand and a little glass pipe smoldering at his lips. “JB” isn’t sure who this is.

    “Is that you, Corn Pop?” he asks.

    “Corn Pop, my ass. Don’t you remember me, George Floyd?”

    “Oh, that boy who—”

    “Boy…!” the ghost fumes. “Get yo’ cracker ass out da bed, right now, and put your limp little privileged paw in my hand!”

    Suddenly they are transported on a cold wind to the concrete apron of the colossal obelisk behind the White House.

    “Didn’t you tell congressman Clyburn you was gonna rename this thing the George Floyd monument?

    “Wuh-whu-well it was a suh-suh-suggestion, not a promise—”

    “Suggestion, my ass,” the ghost snorts and cuffs “JB” upside his head. “I’m the baby-daddy of this country now. You best see that it get done!”

     “Joe Biden” awakens yet again as more cold wind bearing the fetid odor of swamp blows through the still-opened window. He is yet muttering “yu-yuh-yuh-yessir, yessir,” when a shrouded, hooded figure materializes in the gloom.

    “You are… Cuh-Cuh-Christmas Future,” “Joe Biden” says.

    “You’re catching on,” says the ghost, holding out his fleshless, bony hand. “Come!”

    They are transported to the hearing room of a House committee. Hunter Biden sits at the witness table, tears streaking his face, apparently in mid testimony.

    “. . . and then my dad says to Mr. Zlochevsky, ‘one-million? C’mon man, I’ve got a beach house to renovate’. . . and Mister Z says, ‘okay I give you one-point-five-mil’. . . and my dad cracks up laughing. . . . ‘that won’t even cover the area rugs I ordered from Iran’ he says. . . .”

    Suddenly the room vaporizes and “Joe Biden” stands next to the inaugural dais on the US Capitol’s west-facing front. Tucker Carlson has just stepped away after being sworn in as vice president and the massive, gold-headed, once-and-future president lumbers up to the Chief Justice, placing his hand on a Bible.

    “Oh, n-n-n-no-o-o-o-o. . .” “JB” wails and wakes up in the presidential bed, panting and sweating.

    “Are you all right sir?” A marine standing at his bedside says.

    “I had a terrible dream. Trump got back in.”

    “That was no dream, sir. You’ve been in a coma since just before Christmas last year when you stroked out on ice cream. It’s Wednesday, November 6, 2024. Welcome back to reality, sir.”

    “Reality?” “Joe Biden” says. “We make our own reality.”

    “Not anymore, sir,” the lance corporal says.

     “Tell me, son, please! Did I manage to pardon my family? And myself?”

    “Uh, well, sir, you were in a coma. Anyway, your attorneys wish to see you now. . . .”

    I’ve been rattling around here for 57 years and I’ve yet to see anyone but whistle-blowers punished. These people are never going to punish themselves and the only alternative – a Night of the Long Knives unleashed by Trump is just as unthinkable.

    What to do? What to do?

    • JohnAZ November 27, 2023 at 10:06 am #

      A suggestion.
      Quit listening to the fallacious BS the media produces about Trump.

      Instead, consider whether our country was better in November, 2020 or today.

      • JohnAZ November 27, 2023 at 10:20 am #

        Every charge against him is totally political. If the people in the Deep State were all measured with the same ruler, the Congress and White House would be deserted in a year.

        Designated Survivor would be small potatoes.

        Examples: New York, the most corrupt city in the USA, charging Trump with fraud, what a joke. Georgia, the birthplace of voter fraud, charging him with manipulating the election results. Florida, charging him with manipulating the classified documents laws, where are those documents from Biden’s garage, behind the Corvette.

        BTW, is the motivation for the anarchists today for wearing masks the same as the KKK for wearing hoods?

        • jackrabbit November 27, 2023 at 10:25 pm #

          Political? The guy and his family are a walking crime syndicate.

    • hmuller November 27, 2023 at 10:22 am #

      Just curious, Nickle, do you think Trump approved the Epstein killing? Or was that just AG Barr taking care of business for the deep state?

      • JohnAZ November 27, 2023 at 10:29 am #

        Or did Clinton just hire someone to do it?

      • Paula D November 27, 2023 at 1:26 pm #

        It had to have been the Deep State.

        Who else would have access to a high security jail, and the ability to turn off cameras and control both the guards and the media coverage?

        Definitely not Trump. The Deep State hates him.

        • jackrabbit November 27, 2023 at 10:25 pm #

          And with good reason.

          • Paula D November 28, 2023 at 11:37 am #

            It actually baffles me. Why such a deep, unreasoning hatred?

            Is it really just that Trump refuses to go along with their wars?

            I guess so. After all, the same Deep State blew JFK’s head off, just to get their Vietnam war.

          • lbs December 1, 2023 at 12:02 am #

            Yup. He’s the biggest threat to their corrupt dictatorship.

    • loosethedogs November 27, 2023 at 10:29 am #

      NickelthroweR:…in a nation with 500 million firearms…hmmm

      • Cankerpuss November 27, 2023 at 11:08 am #

        500 million firearms owned by multitude of cowards who cannot come together long enough to agree what a woman is. So what good are the 500 million fire arms? Americans are too divided and too frightened to use them.

          Jim
          You are wasting your considerable literary talents ranting about the OBiden Hologram. He is a walking corpse, not even responsible for his own bowl movements as anybody can plainly see.

          Meanwhile back in the real world:

          HOW TO BUY A CHICKEN

          Ecuador:

          Gringo: I want to buy a chicken.
          Farmer: Which one do you want?
          Gringo: The brown one over there scratching for bugs in your garden.
          Farmer: Do you want it dead or alive?
          Gringo: Dead
          Farmer: Do you want it plucked?

          If the Gringo had bothered to chat about the weather with the Farmer he would have discovered that his daughter played in the same soccer league as the Farmer’s daughter and the price of chicken would have been half as much.

          USA:

          I want to buy some chicken.
          — Go to the chicken aisle in a supermarket.
          — Grab a bag of right handed chicken wings.
          — Since half the family will only eat left handed chicken wings, pick up another bag.
          — In spite of years of effort by the chicken engineers at Monsanto they never were able to successfully produce one winged chickens so they could alter the production runs to match changes in political climate. The stupid one winged chickens insisted in walking in circles and had trouble finding the food trough. (Just like their sheeple counterparts)

          Now about your bag of chicken parts.
          — It was grown in a chicken factory in Alabama.
          — Fed with grain imported from Argentina or Ukraine.
          — Mixed with 25% reject fish guts infused with growth hormone,
          — Slaughtered, fast frozen, and shipped to Vietnam for processing.
          — Sorted into it’s component parts and shipped to Los Angeles for labeling.
          — Trucked to New York where it ended up being loaded into the trunk of the Tesla.

            Clucking-fucked Chicken. Fuck ’till you cluck or fall off the coop bandwagon. Bandcoop. Whichever comes first.

            Anyway, in Peru and thereabouts– maybe in spots in all of South America and even parts of Central America– they also eat guinea pigs. Might as well look at raising our own. Pets for the kids and later, meals for the adults.

      All this current wet your pants in fear of the Orange One is just a smoke screen for their real source of anxiety – Real American Justice.

      These clowns know that there is a very good chance they can be convicted of Treason and you know what that means…

        My grandfather used to say, “I have never seen a bishop or a billionaire convicted.”

        That said, Joe Biden is neither. American Justice absolutely can be served. A legal reckoning in this nation is long past due.

        • abbybwood November 27, 2023 at 12:49 pm #

          I have lost all hope for seeing Justice in this country.

          I can imagine Trump naming Jonathan Turley as AG only to hear him say, “We need to look forward, not back.”

        “Once they start turning on each other it will be a bloodbath.
        All we need to do is sit back and watch for flying body parts.

        Yeah…such as we’re seeing in the Georgia case currently.

        I watched a Republican witness at the last BS hearing run by that clown Comer who stated, categorically, that he could NOT SEE ANY EVIDENCE to support a Biden impeachment.

        The fact is that the GOP doesn’t actually WANT to indict him, but instead uses the media circus – which Comer feeds with red meat regularly – to spread the dis/misinformation about President JRB – and it shows in the polls.

        If The Committee had been able to find ANY HARD EVIDENCE, then surely they’d present it, right? So…? We’re all waiting…

        And here’s the spectacle of JHK aiding & abetting this BS with his unwavering belief in all the GOP fabrications. It’s sad to see.

        • benr November 27, 2023 at 7:23 pm #

          Impeach Joe and you get Kamala who is even worse than Joe.
          Not as crooked but even more ridiculous.
          Nope this is about uncovering all the turds buried in the lawn by Joe and gang they have uncovered so much and every time they kick over another toadstool some other cesspool gets uncovered but hey nice try.

          • jackrabbit November 27, 2023 at 10:27 pm #

            Really? Where’s the evidence? Comer and his bumbling retards seem to have trouble coming up w anything.

    • JimInFlorida2.0 November 27, 2023 at 3:52 pm #

      Nickel, “unthinkable”? If you’re a patient in critical condition with a serious sepsis, you will plead for drastic measures to save your life.

      America is dying from sepsis of the body-politic. We can either have a Knight of the Long Knives or a Day of The Rope (see The Turner Diaries). The fantasy that democracy, free markets, and a so-called republican form of government are self-correcting has been proven false. President John Adams and English historian, Lord Macaulay, both had serious doubts about our idols.

      Unfortunately, our institutions have been corrupted for so long that we cannot count on them to supply competent leaders, let alone strongmen who have the power and vision to set things right. Our institutions have spawned a malignant ruling elite that knowingly acts against our best interests and prevents the best of us from rising through the ranks.

      We cannot hope for an Adolf Hitler to avenge us, as he did for the long-suffering German people. We will never get a good strongman who puts his country and people first, like Viktor Lukashenko of Belarus. Even Juan Peron (minus his meddlesome wives) would be head and shoulders above anything our institutions can create.

      What to do? Without a unifying racialist vision to galvanize Whites to action, I can only see individual and ineffective rebellions from among Whites. But, sadly, Whites in general are permanently crippled by a modernist Judaized Christianity. Even those who are not church goers are still infected by such poisonous doctrines. We don’t have any heroes or heroic gods to inspire us but, only the anesthetizing myth of a suffering savior on the cross and liberal traditions that turn men into sheep.

            The world is not “nice” as you well know. Taking scalps is but a more civilized form of flaying enemies alive that the Japanese employed against Chinese captives in the lead up to WWII. Or the US nuclear bombing of Japanese cities after the War was effectively over to demonstrate to the World that we were the new, ruthless Hegemon against which resistance was futile.

        Thank you, Jim, for the remarkably perceptive reply. Clearly, you are a deep thinker. I am especially intrigued by your last sentence, and as a supposed “golden ager,” I have a sincere question: If the anesthetizing effect of a suffering savior, Jesus, is indeed a myth, to what (if anything) do you look forward to once our extremely brief “wisp of vapor” (aka mortal life) “disappears?”

        • JimInFlorida2.0 November 28, 2023 at 3:33 pm #

          Hi mark

          Actually, once I threw off Christianity and its Abrahamic cousins, I have acquired a greater confidence in my fate, before and after the death of my mortal body. I am NOT an atheist! I simply have no faith in the Abrahamic system’s claims of who God is and what He represents.

          The life after this life has always been a mystery. The closest we’ve come to a glimpse has been from seers, like Emmanuel Swedenborg and Edgar Cayse. We have seen the rise of NDEs and they share similar processes while differing in some details. The details being shaped by their life experiences on the Earth.

          And finally, I found superior guidance to the higher knowledge of God, Man, and the Universe from ancient Vedic books, like the Srimad Bhagavatam, the Bhagavad Gita, and the Upanishads. Those three books are LIGHT YEARS beyond the Bible and the Quran. The Talmud is just pure evil. The entire Abrahamic system has a Jewish foundation and THAT, alone, is reason enough to distrust it.

          Recently, I discovered the Late Roman Emperor, Julian, and his magnificent book, “Against The Galileans.” A powerful defense of the old Roman and Greek gods and a scathing rebuke of both Christians and Jews of his time. The things he detested about Christians and Jews can be seen today.

          Christianity has done a terrible job of preparing its followers to face death, which is the most important part of religion. Christians are full of false doctrines and trendy traditions. It stinks of the Judaization that Harold Wallace Rosenthal boasted about when he said that Jews have taken over the seminaries and the churches. When I see “contemporary” Christianity, it makes me vomit.

          OTOH, the best of the faith would be the Eastern/Russian Orthodox Church but, that branch contains the spirit of the Slavic people of Eastern Europe and Russia. It just can’t translate to ZOG America and the degenerate West. God has abandoned the West and each of us must find his own way.

          I could elaborate further but, this should suffice for now.

          • Soul Forensics November 28, 2023 at 6:24 pm #

            “Christianity has done a terrible job of preparing its followers to face death” — JiminFlorida

            Yes indeed.

            It wasn’t always so, though, in earlier Christian communities. What we have now is a faith in modern tech and the ideology of progressivism which causes a distaste and fear of death. People now, Christian or not, think that so-called advances in science, technology, and ever-progressing (ha!) financial development means that death should just be a simple technical problem to be solved.

            At base is the belief that death itself is not only disturbing, but that it’s wrong.

            And this where the transhumanists enter with their own religiose promise of “eternal life”. This also leads into a further and much more important religious discussion regarding what constitutes the “eternal”. As Florida Jim says, the Eastern religions had this all figured out long before Christianity entered the scene. (Hint: eternity, in the religious sense, has no meaning outside of the present moment.)

            Thanks, Jim, for unselfishly dedicating your time to my admittedly selfish intrigue and curiosity. I sincerely appreciate it as there was so much in your initial comment that I’d love to discuss further.

            I responded in some detail early yesterday but at the end of that response it still says…

            “Your comment is awaiting moderation.”

            There was a live hyperlink included in my response so perhaps that was the issue.

            In any event, I sometimes use an anonymous email address to overcome barriers like this. If you’d be so inclined, you could send an email to robr6767atyahoodotcom and perhaps we could finish our conversation privately.

            Either way, thanks again and have a great day!

            **11/29 reply to JimInFlorida2.0 with live hyperlink removed**

            Thanks, Jim, for unselfishly dedicating time to my admittedly selfish intrigue and curiosity.

            Allow me to start out by disclosing that “scope creep” was always for me a vicious destroyer of mutual benefit back when I derived (very painfully) my existential sustenance from the corporate world. I’m sure that is still true today, therefore, while your remarks tempt me with countless potential digressions, I’ll confine for now the scope of my response to the specific question of how we should best prepare ourselves for mortal death.

            I should also disclose that while opinions vary, I am deeply in love with Jesus and his teachings, which I unwaveringly (thus far) believe represent absolute truth. That said, I also firmly believe that, unlike a lie, a truth does not at all mind intense scrutiny and questioning, which is why you cannot offend me by questioning Christianity.

            That said, in addition to today’s pathetic body politic, you are also spot on in your unvarnished assessment of “contemporary” Christianity. In fact, I burst out laughing recently when my beloved SIL posted on social media, “If Paul could see the Church in America today…we’d be getting a letter.” That cuts right to the bone if you ask me.

            When you say, “Christianity has done a terrible job of preparing its followers to face death,” are you referring to Christ’s actual Biblical teachings, or to the counterfeit “modernist Judaized Christianity” that sadly seems to have permeated the Church in America?

            Either way, whenever I contemplate my own inevitable death, I often meditate on a quote by D.L. Moody…

            “Some day you will read in the papers that D.L. Moody of East Northfield, is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it! At that moment I shall be more alive than I am now; I shall have gone up higher, that is all, out of this old clay tenement into a house that is immortal—a body that death cannot touch, that sin cannot taint; a body fashioned like unto His glorious body.”

            So, I guess if it’s a crime to employ Moody’s advice anesthetically, put the ‘cuffs on me, ’cause I’m guilty as charged. Just like I’m guilty of deriving courage and peace from the (supernatural if you ask me) faith and trust articulated, for instance, in the 3rd chapter of Daniel.

            I could go on and on, but for brevity’s sake, I’ll conclude by staging a final question. You credit ancient Vedic books for assisting you in “throwing off” what you apparently now perceive Christianity to be, an inferior religion. Believe me, since eternity is such a frighteningly long time to be wrong, I’m very cool with entertaining the notion right now, while there’s still time, that perhaps I’m the one who has been deceived. In that vein, Christ teaches us that, “you will know them by their fruit,” so that’s what I tend to look for when seeking validation. Is there a better method you are aware of?

            To wit: I believe that Harvard (and higher education in general) had a sizable role in elevating the historically unprecedented material success story we often refer to as the American experiment, especially early on. Unfortunately, like all human institutions, higher education is not exempt from corrupting influences, and it has now devolved into a veritable cesspool of (supernatural?) demonic evil if you ask me. But it wasn’t always that way. Here’s a portion of Harvard’s stunning 1646 mission statement…

            “Let every Student be plainly instructed, and earnestly pressed to consider well, the main end of his life and studies is, to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life (John 17:3) and therefore to lay Christ in the bottom, as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning. And seeing the Lord only giveth wisdom, let everyone seriously set himself by prayer in secret to seek it of him (Prov. 2:3).”

            For proper context, I’ll readily admit that the “New World” was a unique opportunity for the Puritans to start fresh in their quest to freely exercise their religious beliefs without the wicked persecution that existed back then in Western Europe. That was a seriously huge advantage, and yet it’s only taken us ~400 years, a mere speck of time in the context of eternity, to again completely lose our way both culturally and politically.

            All that said, I’ll humbly submit that I am woefully ignorant of the ancient Vedic books you speak of, nor have I read Julian’s book, but I have little doubt that he makes a valid case that the Christian Church had already strayed far from Christ’s teachings by the mid-300’s. And understanding that is what makes me extra cautious about whom I seek direction, there are a lot of false prophets out there!

            So, in addition to the Holy Spirit, I look to a small group of figures like Moody, C.S. Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, et al., for guidance and inspiration in my faith walk. In fact, I prayed yesterday for the Spirit to direct me into specific divine wisdom as it relates to our exchange, and I “stumbled” across a podcast recorded on 6/8/2008 that really resonated with me as I make my way through the 4th quarter of life…

            truthforlifedotorg/resources/sermon/response-request-reminder/#transcript

            I spent almost the entire day yesterday with my precious 4-year-old granddaughter, and words cannot express the peace (and joy) I felt afterwards as I listened to the message referenced above. Alistair Begg epitomizes the two human traits I admire most, courage and humility, better than any living person I know, and he has helped me immensely as I prepare for whatever modest legacy I might eventually leave to my progeny.

            So here (finally!) is my question (turns out it’s actually 2 questions): First, before you threw off Christianity, did you ever feel as though you were truly born of the Spirit (aka born again), or do you suppose your experience was the far more common “false conversion?” And secondly, given that I know very little of the teachings you speak so highly of, could you direct me to perhaps the one best introductory source where someone like myself could gain a working understanding of the essence of the belief system? IOW, something instructionally like Lewis’ “Mere Christianity?”

            Sorry for the length, I didn’t have time to shorten it up. Someday I’d love to hear your thoughts on why Patton said after WWII that we had fought the wrong enemy. ?

            Thanks again!

    I’d love to imagine a Chinese equivalent of the above, where the Seven Ogres who head the CCP (read: Callous, Cannibalistic Psychopaths) — with that fat, ugly man with a rosebud mouth being their chief, of course — find themselves visited every night by the countless spirits of those who have died on their account. The hauntings become so severe they become afraid to look in any mirror lest they see the dire spirits and their health deteriorates due to lack of sleep. Eventually some of them die in their sleep as their souls descend into Hades and pass through the 18 Courts of Judgement, while others go mad and start shooting everything and everyone around them, and eventually have to be put down by their loyal party cadres. Thus ends the hateful reign of the CCP and a new chapter in Chinese history can finally begin.

        The repeated theme: ” we’ll beat the ass of any country that doesn’t do exactly what we say”. And what does that really mean? American treasure and blood sacrificed to further the corporate globalists’ and bankers’ interests. Your blood. Their treasure.

          “American treasure.” That’s a laughable term. There is no treasure. Federal Debt is $32 trillion. Private debt is even more. The money is gone. The USA is broke, busted, cashed out, whatever you want to call it. The credit card is maxed out. The interest mongers are calling. Tis only a matter of time.

          Personally, I am thankful that the end is coming. I’m sick of sacrificing the blood and sanity of our young men and women for ridiculous and illegal wars in foreign nations that have never posed any legitimate threat to America. See: Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and Ukraine. I’m sick of it all.

      I was at the gym last week, trying to burn off some Thanksgiving feast calories (might be the last feast so I made sure to enjoy it). As I was pumping iron and stepping the stair stepper I was intrigued to note how many people in the gym that day were of bronze skin and black hair orientations. Lots of Spanish was being bantered about that day. I speak fluent Spanish so I am not threatened by that, but the part that I did note was that there was not a single blonde person in that gym that day. It’s almost as if blonde haired blue eyed people are being bred out of existence.

      Just an observation. Open borders have consequences and when considered against the global population, blonde haired, blue eyed people are the vast minority.

        Scene during the French Revolution: A swarthy Sans Cullote taking a guilotined head by the blonde braids and tossing it as he yells to the crowd, Let’s send them back to the swamps of Germany.

        The Nordic aristocratic element was all but destroyed in France during the Revolution.

        It’s a recessive element in any case, easily lost mixing with others. There are so few real blondes now that people have taken to calling any fair skinned brunette blonde – perhaps to hide from themselves the genetic change.

        Losing blonde hair would be ok, though an aesthetic loss of course. My rational fear is that people will be just as sanguine and jokey about losing the White genotype entirely as per Ron’s post. That matters. If it doesn’t matter to you, then you have not the slightest idea of what a nation is, much less the genetic role in culture creation.

            Note: Like Islander, Paula goes to Unz.com. She ignores the White Nationalism that Mr Unz provides, focusing only on the Palestinian issues. Mr Unz, an ethnic Jew, cares far more for the plight of Whites than most White people. A very, very great man.

            ‘White’ and ‘black’ are relatively arbitrary.

            Nevertheless, some people want to try to fix (i.e., ‘to make firm, stable, or stationary’) that arbitrariness, and try to drum up support for it as though it were a social engineering project or human breeding program, while others are happy to just ‘let nature/attraction/love take its course’ at the ‘grass roots level’ as it were.

            God forbid some so-called ‘whites’ get actually what they want and end up in such a program where courtship and mating are somehow WEF and/or government-controlled…

            and realize, perhaps too late, that what they thought they wanted was nothing of the sort– except, perhaps, for other people.

        The Bushes should have been Democrats for all the globalist leaning both had. They were and W still are the heart of the RINO group. One of the best things Trump did is eliminate Jeb, a sin for which RINOs will not forgive him.

        Foremost though is just the Deep State. The economic cooperation treaties, both of them, that have “opened” the economic borders are just the excuse to open the border. They were bipartisan.

        I read that book I keep bringing up, I wish I could remember the name, a couple of years ago that said that the fiscal skids of the IMF and global debt are oiled by the illicit trades crossing the southern border. Our government will never desire to close things down as long as Dems and RINOs dominate the uniparty. Trump will try again if he is elected, Build the Wall.

      Actually happen, or accelerate towards some breaking point.

      Ignoring signs and symptoms doesn’t cure anything.

      Early Dx and treatment is usually the best course.

      In the case of it being a dream, one can take the position all courses of action begin in the mind.

    Thank you Night, for posting that link yesterday to the big picture unrolling now before our eyes and in our bodies ending in the 15 minute prison planet.
    It is a horror long planned and nearly established.

    Very well documented.

    In summary, since the 90’s we’ve been primed with pharma.
    5g grid update in place.
    Jab enabled graphene transmitters in place.
    Digital currency roll out spurred by economic collapse.
    15 minute city gulags.

    NWO.

    please correct me where I got it wrong and extrapolate.

        If you seek a hopium addiction, JAZ, there is no sense backing a few horses in their rigged race. There is no sense flirting on the edges of a hopium addiction. You might as well dive right into the deep end and listen to SG Anon, Juan O Savin, Derek Johnson, Michael Jaco, et al.

        To enjoy seven years of plenty before seven years of Trials & Tribulations, the White Hats truly are our best hope.

        ***
        I was very disappointed with your review of The Greatest Show on Earth, JAZ. It is based on the work of Derek Johnson (as fine a patriotic American as there is) and explains all that happened since the patriotic generals asked Trump to step on that escalator in 2015.

        rumble.com/v3gx680-the-greatest-show-on-earth-2023.html

        Putin handed Trump the soccer ball. Trump looked behind himself to ensure that he was stepping in the Queen of England’s path. Trump is the only Westerner to ever dine in China’s Forbidden City. These things happened, they were clear “comms” and with that, there is hope.

        • JohnAZ November 27, 2023 at 4:36 pm #

          Put it where it is at OG, Trump is really the only legitimate option to the political winds in this country. I have lost my faith in the common sense, educated people in America as we have been overrun by Democratic induced refugees that know nothing about what America is supposed to stand for.

          2024 will tell if a reversal is possible. We elect the same SOBs into place, the US is finished.

          2022 was a total disappointment and IMHO unfortunately a harbinger of where the public really is.

      @anmari

      The rumble link was interesting, but you should be cautious about some of the claims. Just referencing an IEEE link means nothing, especially if you are selling related products.

      One of the hardest scientific areas of investigation is in-vivo studies.
      When you are dealing with living organisms it typically takes a LOT of money, hundreds of experiments and years of analysis to confirm any suspected effects. Most results you hear about are from one-off studies and have never been replicated. Ask any micro-biologist.

      See xxx.emfandhealth.com for more info.

      • anmariwakaranai November 27, 2023 at 7:46 pm #

        Yirgach, hey. I didn’t look at the study per say. I just believe these folks over the science”””””.

        Even Zelenko sold his z pak, and He’s a saint in my books.

        But yah, you have a point there, for sure.

        • Yirgach November 27, 2023 at 9:06 pm #

    • Night Owl November 27, 2023 at 4:18 pm #

      No problem, Anmari.

      I don’t think you got anything wrong. I am somewhat unconvinced on the graphene aspect at present, but the rest was spot on IMO.

      I should also mention that there has been plenty of evidence for graphene, but I just feel well out of my depth there.

      Regardless of what the different lots were designed to do, it is quite clear that we are rapidly moving to the digital gulag phase. The legislation going through the EU right now on controlled digital currency and digital ID is the stuff of nightmares.

      • JohnAZ November 27, 2023 at 4:43 pm #

        NO

        It makes little difference if it was graphene.

        There is something that carries the mRNA through the injection and to the cells and injects it into the cells. It seems to be top secret what that is. I wonder how much testing, allergies for example, was done on that component at all.

        Why not? Easy, any negative indication from any testing will disqualify years of development and mucho dinero for the scum bum mRNA companies.

        So do nothing, convince the Deep State, who know nothing of what is going on and then just jab away.

        • JohnAZ November 27, 2023 at 4:48 pm #

          Also, about the EU trying to control money?

          They have no choice, they are broke, they know it, now what to do?

          Declare it is a non problem by dictating control of the money, and degrading its presence in wealthy areas of society.

          Redistribution of the Wealth. The progressive dream. As I said before, Holland and Argentina may signal that the middle class senses what is going on. Hope it continues.

          JohnAZ – lots of info here from Dr Jessica Rose just the other day on some of what you are talking about, but also the plasmid DNA that has been found in the vials.

          When they changed the production process from Process 1 (used for the fraudulent trials) to Process 2 (because Process 1 couldn’t be scaled up to billions of doses, so they used E-coli) only 250 people were ‘tested’ with the stuff that then got injected into billions of people.

            I don’t know if this is relevant, or even true, but my friend shared it, so I’ll pass it along.

            “If you have an iPhone and have downloaded the recent iOS 17 update, Apple has a new feature called NameDrop set to default ON.

            This allows the sharing of info just by bringing your phones close together.

            To turn this off, go to Settings, General, Air Drop, Bringing Devices Together and change to OFF.”

            It doesn’t sound like it works outside a store, but maybe? I don’t know how close you have to get your phones to exchange info.

    Current US debt is $33.723T and growing at about $100M/hour..

    • Cankerpuss November 27, 2023 at 11:05 am #

      A man who is in debt owns nothing and is poorer than the poorest slob who may not own anything but has no debt. America is beyond that. The wealth is gone. We are by far the poorest nation on the planet by virtue of the public debt AND private debt.

    • JohnAZ November 27, 2023 at 11:36 am #

      Malthuss

      The Federal government at all levels is the leader of the fiscal runaway.

      The increasingly gimme people of America are the cause, as the government has learned to suck up votes with money, fiat money. The people have actually found a way to have more collective debt than the government. Lots and lots of individual debt that has shifted up with high interest rates.

      The Dems idea that inflation and the consequent increase in interest rates are good things is the main contributor to the run up going on now, just like LBJ in the 60s. We need unemployment in the 8 range for a controlled economy, not 3%.

      The run up is almost out of control.

      • JohnAZ November 27, 2023 at 11:37 am #

          Since WWII, Japan has essentially been a vassal state to western powers.

          I don’t believe they wanted to trade valuable goods for US Treasuries for decades. With decimated post-war infrastructure, no domestic oil, or meaningful military, what choice did they have?

          If they join BRICS, the Japanese are trading a Western yoke for a Sino-Russian yoke – assuming the West lets them go without a brutally destructive fight.

          Not a great situation for Japan.

      No, blame the government body that is Constitutionally charged with originating all spending bills — The House Of Representatives. They are the ones authoring the deficit spending bills that require printing money and debasing the currency to accommodate it.

          Exactly, that’s why there is no way out other than a crash. It has been said that there are two kinds of people in the US — those that work for a living and those that vote for a living. The latter are the ones that keep giving us AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Fetterman, Biden, and all the rest of the Democrat clown show. Left unchallenged, parasites eventually kill the host, and that is what is now happening here, with a $33T+ national debt and rising interest rates.

        Sure, with a mysterious massive vote dump at around 3 a.m. Prior to that election, Presidential Elections were called within hours of the polls closing, usually with little controversy. The one time there was controversy, it didn’t matter, Gore had already given his concession speech before he decided to contest the election, and that went nowhere, of course. Idiocy is pretending that the last Presidential election wasn’t rigged.

    I live in Pennsylvania that’s mostly a Red State but is Blue when they count the votes. This morning reading our local “RAG” newspaper, the editor condemned the State Legislators for getting another raise making them the third-highest paid legislature in the country. Nobody voted for the raise since it comes automatically from a 1995 law that ties salaries to the CPI. This year’s raise is 3,5 %, going from $102,844 to $106,422. This comes after a 7.8% bump last year. The base salary is more than twice the average salary in the state.
    The State Senate is now considering whether or not to give retiree’s a raise. Retiree’s haven’t seen as raise for 20 years . Some retirees who retired before 2001 were in a reduced system making things worse. This is how Pennsylvania honors those who worked in the field of education for years with sub-standard wages.
    One House legislature indicated that they got Social Security, that’s there Cost of Living raise and in addition he said they knew what retirement was when they started teaching, too bad!
    Of course, this individual is milking he state with over 100K per year plus an expense account.
    My local REPUBLICAN Legislator said there is just no money for a raise while we now spend millions on illegals.
    We the people are a real group of losers to be taken like this.
    BTW, the average teacher in PA that retired in the late 80’s and early 90’s are living on $30K per year, that’s retirement income and Social Security combined.

        Also add VT to the list. States with large Democrat cities generally go Blue because there are more of them then the Red rural folks.

    I just finished reading today’s article on SHTF Plan by Michael Snyder. Now I now Snyder is an alarmist extraordinaire, but he has been on target for the past year. He is talking about how poor the average American really is. Daily survival is getting more difficult.

    That got me thinking about food, a pretty basic measure of economic, physical and emotional conditions. My daughter has volunteered at a local food pantry for about 3 or 4 years. She’s telling me the number of families that are coming in for food assistance has greatly increased. And the food pantry is in a reasonably well-off, average town.

    If anything happens to our food supply like drought, problems with trucking or any other negative factor, our society will break down immediately, like we CFNers already know. I think we ought to start food prepping now. I know many posters here live in more rural areas, which is good.

    • cowbell81 November 27, 2023 at 1:17 pm #

      Hey Bill, hope you had a great Thanksgiving. You are right, it is never too late to start prepping. I have canned goods and bottled water coming out of my wazoo! Every time I go to the store I grab 4-5 extra canned goods, just to add to my stash. It has all built up really well over time.

    “The White House, Christmas Eve, 2023.”

    OK, that covered Year 2023. How about looking further ahead?

    So the Christmas gift that ‘The Indispensable Nation!’ can look forward to in 2024 is either…

    Mister ‘The Big Steal’… stealing it again. And still wondering who he is and how he got there. And where the hell is my pudding.

    Mister Orange Man Always The Smartest Man In The Room reclaiming his lost throne… and still looking for some needed humility. And answers as to why he valued Trump Tower at $176 Trillion Dollars on his wealth statements.

    Governor ‘Oh So Woke!… And His Hair Was… PURR-FECT!’ seizing America for ‘Make Marxism Great’! Who will order Masks for everyone in America at all times except for his own very Reddish mouth.

    Mister ‘Why The Hell Didn’t I Stay In Florida and Who The Hell Talked Me Into This?!’.

    Kamal… Kamal… aw hell, there’s no effing way. Or you might just say… a jolly Ho Ho Ho of one kind or another.

    ‘The Female Dick Chaney’… and in any case… always a Dick.

    Or, could it be? Might it be? What-Remains-Of-America getting a real holiday gift? A gift that keeps on giving? A man with the courage to call out the Death Shots for what they always were? A man who doesn’t get every position statement right… but who gets a lot of the really big ones?

    A man who is heir to America’s Legacies Stolen? Who rightfully reclaims the Road to Camelot that We the People were wrongfully denied?

    A man that… in the conventional World… has no chance in hell of getting any where near the Steering Wheel of State?

    Well, people have long spoken of Christmas Miracles. Well, America could use one. A big one. And if we can somehow manage to keep What-Remains-Of-Our-Nation together for just a little while longer… and we can make our way around the teeming hordes of foreigners streaming across our borders like a bathroom sink faucet that sprung a huge leak and stuff is spewing everywhere… perhaps bells will yet ring… birds will sing… and ‘He’ will get to be… America’s King? (Cue the Hallelujah chorus and sounds of the Angelic Choir belting something out in ecstacy…).

    And if this is just a dream I’m having on Christmas Eve Night 2023… please never wake me up.

    And Santa… how are you with delivering Christmas Miracles? We’ll leave the light on for you in November, 2024. Nothing says you can’t show up early next time. We need you to. And maybe a bit of Peace on Earth and good will to all Life Forms.

    If they do not act soon with their plan of action to insure Ireland’s safety, I will.

    Connor McGregor

    They won’t, but they will arrest him. Then what? Will Captain Moonlight come out to play? In the meantime, Hail low rent Caesar!

    If he really carries though, all his misdeeds and bad behavior will be forgotten. Who knows? Maybe he does love Ireland more than himself. It’s been known to happen…..

    The Easter rebellion was betrayed. They could tell by British troop movements. The rebels faced long, dreary years of reorganizing. But Pearse said, “No we go ahead. We need a blood sacrifice.” This great man was correct. At first the Irish cursed them for destroying much of central Dublin. But when the British began to execute the rebels, hearts began to move. When the shot James Connolly strapped to his wheel chair, the dam burst and the Irish threw of their mind forged manacles and open their hearts.

    Freedom begins in those two places. It really does.

    I thought Europe had a deep-seated hatred for all things Russian and their culture. Why they would care about these missing volumes, I don’t know. The people that stole them were doing the Euries a favor and taking back the cultural artifacts that are rightly theirs.

    ‘Lost diamonds’: Rare Russian books stolen from European libraries

    – A spate of thefts of rare Russian classics worth millions of euros from libraries across Eastern Europe has left a trail that points all the way to auctions in Russia.

    Shelves of 19th century Russian literature have been ransacked over the past two years in Poland and the Baltic states, with originals replaced by fakes.

    The University of Warsaw library only found out last month about the thefts, including first editions of works by Alexander Pushkin and Nikolai Gogol.

    A university employee with knowledge of the matter estimated the value of the stolen books at “around a million euros”.

    “It was like gouging out the crown jewels,” Hieronim Grala, a former diplomat, an expert in Russia policy and professor at the University of Warsaw told AFP.

    “Fortunately, not everything was picked out, but a few emeralds, diamonds and rubies are lost,” said Grala, who has helped the university assess the damages.

    The theft in Warsaw was not an isolated event.

    Libraries in the three Baltic countries have also fallen prey to thieves, and in each case Russian literature was targeted.

    Experts believe the stolen works have found their way to Russia, with at least some sold off at hasty auctions in Moscow.

    ‘Industrial scale’
    The first known case of what turned out to be a series of similar raids was detected at the National Library of Latvia last year, when three books were stolen.

    A Georgian citizen was later found guilty of stealing them and sentenced to six months in prison, but his accomplice remained at large.

    In the same month, two men claiming to be studying censorship and printing policy in early 19th-century Russia showed up at the university library in the Estonian city of Tartu and asked for the nearly 200-year-old works of Pushkin and Gogol.

    It was only four months later that the library realised they had left behind eight convincing-looking copies, not the books that were later estimated to be worth a total of 158,000 euros ($170,000).

    In May, Lithuania’s Vilnius University library discovered 17 of its rare Russian books had gone missing too.

    “Most of the stolen books were replaced with non-original ones,” Gintare Vitkauskaite-Satkauskiene, spokeswoman of the Lithuanian Prosecutor General’s Office, told AFP.

    According to Lithuanian investigators, the stolen books were worth around 440,000 euros.

    The University of Warsaw has so far identified 79 books as missing, meaning it suffered the most substantial losses of all four countries.

    “Here, the thieves operated on an industrial scale,” a Warsaw University library employee who declined to be named, told AFP.

    “When I saw what they had taken, I felt a hot flash.”

    The fake books the thieves left behind, seen by AFP, range from sloppy imitations to meticulous counterfeits, where only the improper stamp ink colour or size of label revealed the forgery.

    While these books were being counted as still in the collection, the originals were being sold off in Moscow.

    “There’s a memo dated December 22, 2022 that the books are in their place,” Grala told AFP.

    “On the same day, at an auction in Moscow, one of these books goes for 30,500 euros.”

    ‘Organised from Russia’
    Sources close to the Warsaw library’s investigation have shown AFP screenshots of auctions held by Russia’s Litfond auction house with books carrying stamps and catalogue numbers of Warsaw University.

    “It is clear to me that the whole action was centrally organised from Russia,” Grala told AFP.

    AFP contacted the Litfond auction house but its general director Sergei Burmistrov did not explicitly deny nor confirm any wrongdoing.

    “The Litfond auction house works within the framework of the current legislation of the Russian Federation, and we do not accept for sale nor do we sell any books with stamps from existing state libraries”, Burmistrov said.

    To Grala, there is a clear Russian link connecting the thefts in Poland and the Baltic countries which is hardly a surprise or coincidence.

    “The first three strikes hit those countries that the Russians accuse of fighting the Russian language and Russian culture,” he told AFP.

    “They recognised quite well that the Rossica (items related to Russian culture) are guarded less strictly in our region… and less guarded means more accessible.”

    Poland’s relations with Russia have long been strained, with Warsaw being an ardent critic of the Kremlin and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

    Both sides frequently trade barbs about protecting each other’s cultural heritage.

    Grala could barely hide his emotion as he spoke of how he was “devastated” by the “irreversible” losses of Russian books that survived two national uprisings and two world wars on Polish soil.

    “The librarians of the University of Warsaw, risking their lives during the war, secretly built a double ceiling and hid the books so that they wouldn’t disappear or burn down,” Grala told AFP.

    “And we couldn’t protect them from looting.”

    JAZ, if you disliked what “BRICS++” was up to before, you’re gonna really get bent out of shape over this one:

    BRICS nations may call for Israel to officially be labeled a “terrorist” state

    naturalnews.com/2023-11-27-brics-wants-israel-labeled-terrorist-state.html

    Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi is calling on all BRICS member nations – there are now 11 of them – to officially designate the Israeli government and its military apparatus as terrorist organizations.

    Citing alleged war crimes in Gaza, Raisi submitted a request to the group’s online Extraordinary Joint Meeting on the Middle East Situation in Gaza, asking everyone involved to use their influence to break Israel’s “siege” of Gaza and insure that humanitarian aid can be safely delivered to embattled Palestinian civilians.

    “It is necessary that this fake regime be recognized as a terrorist regime and its army be regarded as a terrorist organization,” Raisi said, adding that all BRICS members need to recognize that the Palestinian state has a right to self-defense while cutting all ties with West Jerusalem.

    “With regards to the constant crimes [committed] by and the racist nature of the fake Israeli regime, free nations [of the world] expect all governments, especially BRICS members, to immediately put the issue of the severance of political, economic and military ties with the regime high on the agenda,” he added.

    • OG November 27, 2023 at 4:26 pm #

      These war crimes include allegations that Israel has been using white phosphorus and other illegal weaponry on the Palestinians in violation of international law. The filing also seeks to hold the United States responsible for Israel’s murder of children in Gaza.

      • OG November 27, 2023 at 4:34 pm #

        As of this writing, at least 13,500 Palestinians have died in Gaza at the hands of Israel since October 7 when Hamas was blamed for around 1,200 deaths in Israel. Many of those 1,200 deaths have since been discovered to have been caused by Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

        ***
        13,500 dead / 2mm pop. = 6,750 dead / mil
        6,750 dead /mil * 330 mil [US pop.] = 2,227,500 dead
        2,227,500 dead / 3,000 dead [1 standard 9/11] = 742.5 9/11s

            To be fair HAMAS IS hiding among the victims and the victims celebrate the mass murders of the JEWS and Christians.
            They pass out candy.
            They shelter Hamas, they get paid to allow their children to be used as suicide bombers.
            They elected Hamas.
            Hamas hide weapons and fighters among them and fires rockets off from among them and everyone wrings their hands when Israel responds.
            Well duh.
            Win win Hamas does not care about dead Palestinians never has never will.
            Look at the soft headed idiots on this very site that can’t figure out the propaganda value.

            They try to flee the cycle of violence and Hamas threatens them and murders them.
            They keep putting people into power who refuse to come to the table and sue for a two-state solution.
            What would a Palestinian state look like?
            A complete welfare state.
            Devoid of any ability to feed, power, water, clothe and take care of its people.
            Palestinians are about the most useless quarrelsome people on the planet and everyone around them knows this it is why no one wants them.
            They keep putting corrupt assholes in power and they deserve the officials they put into power.

            To Jackrabbit FUCK YOU nobody cares what your opinion is literally NO ONE.
            I have watched these people screw themselves over for the last forty years.
            I have watched them brutalize themselves and everyone around them.
            I have watched them steal each other blind scam everyone and lie about everything and everyone.
            I have watched them continuously bite the hand that feeds them every chance they get.
            AT THIS POINT ZERO SYMPATHY and they still have some of the largest birth rates on the planet with zero ability to take care of themselves.
            Only now instead of a couple hundred thousands angry uneducated easily duped Palestinians we have millions.
            Millions of shock troops ready to be used as a propaganda tool.

            You don’t destroy an entire civilian landscape because some combatants may be hiding out in it. This happens in every theater of war.

            If you level everything, you have committed mass murder.

            And it continues. There is no way to deny that what they are doing is a war crime and from a moral standpoint inexcusable.

          • Anthea November 29, 2023 at 3:08 pm #

            @ benr:

            Well, it may be that a Palestinian state would look like a complete welfare state, but in real time, that’s what Israel is. It could not exist without billions per year in US economic and military support.

            I might dislike Palestinians if I knew any. Nevertheless, neither your dislike nor mine justifies mass murder. As with any other disagreeable group of people, they should be left alone, and to their own devices. As long as I am not either supporting them or associating with them, they can be as disagreeable as they want.

            And, as a matter of fact, many people would level the same accusations against Jews. A lot of people don’t “like” them, and would find fault with their doings in both political and economic matters, and even personally: quarrelsome people whom no one wants around. Heck, they’ve been kicked out of 109 countries. Perhaps it was due to rudeness.

            While both sides are guilty of violence, Israel is undoubtedly guilty of far greater violence, just by the numbers killed, without even taking property damage into consideration.

            Complaining about Palestinian birth rates is pretty weak sauce, since having kids is not a crime. I can see how Israel would be troubled by their large numbers, but from the standpoint of everyone else in the world, this is neither our business nor our problem.

            I’m inclined to concur with Col. Macgregor about Israel–and Macgregor kind of likes Israel, thought apparently not with the incandescent fervor that US Jews would prefer. (I’ve seen him accused of anti-semitism for taking a balanced view.) Anyway, his view is that Israel is making a HUGE mistake in prosecuting this war in this manner, and is likely to incite the entire Arab world (which outnumbers them many times over) to attack Israel–whose conduct of this war has also alienated most of the rest of the world.

            In addition, as I mentioned above, Israel is completely dependent on the US for its existence. The time is approaching when the US will not be able to secure Israel’s existence. And apart from the US, Israel has no friends at all–and many, many enemies. And many of those enemies would be very eager to put an end to Israel’s existence. They want only the opportunity. This is why Col. Macgregor said that he does not expect to see Israel on future world maps. (I don’t either.)

          • Anthea November 29, 2023 at 10:15 pm #

            @ no one in particular:

            Actually, Israel’s extreme violence against Gaza seems–to me–so incredibly foolish that it makes me think there is some sub-plot I’m missing.

            The October 7th attack was an obvious false flag, very obviously intended as an excuse to undertake extreme violence against Gaza–but what for? And why now? (Israel could have done this any old time.)

            Does now seem like an opportune time to provoke the entire Arab world? Just as the US’s military credibility–and actual ability to prosecute a war–is approaching zero? And when that’s the only card they have to play?

            The only motivation for this that I can think of is that Israel sees that it’s just a matter of time before it ceases to exist, and there’s nothing to be done about it. Thus, perhaps they figure that the best way to play this is to get themselves genocided, so they can play the holocaust card. Such a move would also add a colorful note to Jewish history: going out with guns blazing makes a fine tale.

            I should stress that I am not advocating for anybody to get genocided. I’m just more than a little puzzled that some people apparently want to.

            Unless there’s something else going on here that I’m not seeing….

            Anthea – one consideration, granted an outlier I suppose, may be an attempt to normalize collective punishment.

            No question that the Hamas terrorists need to be taken out – neutralized without any remorse or forgiveness.

            In addition to the bad apples, the Deep State looks the other way, as the entire barrel is destroyed with extreme prejudice.

            The J6 political prisoners are our example. A warning that collective punishment will follow if we dare misbehave.

            Once collective punishment is normalized and ingrained here (almost done) we will be next – the dissidents.

            We already know who the bad apples are – we are the barrel, and they will be coming for us too. Mark my word.

            @ Ron Anselmo:

            The part of this game–if it is one–that I can’t make sense of is Israel committing suicide. Or so it seems to me. It’s fair to ask whether they have another option, I guess.

            Maybe Israel figures that, what since their sole means of survival (the US) is pretty much dead except for the twitching, they need to make an aggressive move to get rid of Gaza/Hamas and thus put an end to this thorn in their side.

            The thing is, does the eradication of Hamas mean that Israel can survive independent of US support? What do they really need to assure this? I’d say missles, and plenty of them, so that they can threaten meaningful retaliation if attacked by the Arab world. Can Israel afford this without US support? Well…. Maybe if those fossil fuel fields (I forget whether they’re oil or gas) offshore of Gaza are sufficiently productive.

            If Israel is to continue to exist without US support, they’re going to need money–and plenty of it.

    something like 1 in 3 Hattians is already in USA,

    don’t need to go to Haiti to experience Haitian stupidity, I’ve been living and working in S. Florida for 20+ years, I see it all the time. Most of them are dumb as rocks, but they are smart enough to pull off insurance scams, and claim a bunch of kids around tax refund time, even though they are getting every handout benefit under the sun.

    They like to get in fender benders, since FL is a no fault state, then send 6 or 8 of their cousins/brothers/sisters to the doctor claiming they were in the car and have whiplash, etc.

    Happened to a guy I know, he got hit from behind at a stop light by 2 Haitians with no insurance, and then 8 people made claims they were injured and tried suing his insurance company for medical.

    Terrorist is the eye of the beholder, of course Iran wants its fellow BRICS++ folk to put that label on Israel.

    Then, the WEF and America can call the Hamas and Hezbollah folks terrorists and BRICS++ can call Israel terrorist.

    BFD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hamas kills and kidnaps 1400 folks. Israel reacts and tries to eliminate Hamas who has been hiding behind the “skirts” of the Gaza Palestinians for two generations.

    Illegal weaponry? That is a damn joke, OG. When one side is going to kill the other, nothing is left off the table. When did nuclear war be called illegal weapons? AND as many adverse journalists as there are, any usage of “dirty” weapons would have been reported all around the world. IMHO, the Americans should just tell anybody filing BS to just kiss our ass.

    If Palestinians insist on committing suicide by covering for Hamas scum, let them. I hope Israel has finally had enough.

      The global financial landscape is witnessing a seismic shift as the United Arab Emirates (UAE) boldly moves away from the US dollar in its oil trade dealings.

      This strategic pivot aligns with the broader ambitions of the BRICS economic alliance, of which the UAE is a recent addition.

      by Jai Hamid

      ====================================================

      Nuclear weapons are a hoax

      But the plot thickens, because the truth is that “nuclear” weapons do not even exist at all – they are just big bombs, and nothing more. Nuclear radiation, etc, is a total myth, a fiction, and a fraud. The purpose of this scientific fraud is government control and fear. It is used as propaganda.

      The Myth Of Thermonuclear War, Atomic Bombs, Nuclear Radiation, Radioactive Fallout, & WW3

      Nuclear war. Since childhood we have been indoctrinated to fear this terrible war that would allegedly destroy the whole Earth. Now that Russia is at war with Ukraine, many may wonder if we are at the brink of a nuclear holocaust. The media and the propaganda machine is certainly making it look like that’s a possibility, but what’s the real truth? Prepare to be shocked.

      It all started when a group of Jewish scientists in Germany 1938, Otto Hahn (Jewish), Lise Meitner (Jewish) and Fritz Strassman (Jewish), allegedly discovered nuclear fission, and as a result, this made the advent of the Nuclear Age possible. The idea is that “when an atom of radioactive material splits into lighter atoms, there’s a sudden, powerful release of energy” [1]. Shortly after, in 1939 the Manhattan Project was envisioned in America by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, after hearing that Germany was allegedly developing this new atomic technology [2].

      After the creation of the agencies leading to the Manhattan Project, Enrico Fermi (whose wife was Jewish) and Leo Szilard (Jewish) acquired funding to start their research “on radioactive isotope separation (also known as uranium enrichment) and nuclear chain reactions” at Columbia University. Officially, the Manhattan Project began in 1942 [2].

      Due to the nuclear terror that followed after propaganda about the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the “atomic bomb”, children in classrooms in the 50s and 60s were instructed to hide under tables and cover their head as they were shown Hollywood productions of the destructive forces of these alleged “nuclear” bombs. Because getting under a table will certainly save you from a so-called nuclear blast. This was obviously merely fearmongering to condition a generation of children to hate Russia and fear WW3. It was the time of the Cold War.

      Yes, nuclear bombs are simply large bombs. They are measured in TNT equivalent because they are simply large bombs. Atomic bombs use plutonium or uranium to create an explosion. But plutonium and uranium, contrary to what you have been told, are virtually harmless. Caffeine is far more deadly than uranium or plutonium. A bottle of caffeine pills can kill 4 grown men, but one person can swallow an equivalent bottle of uranium, and suffer no harm.

      World Truth

        I don’t know what world you are living in, but not in mine. Saying caffeine is worse for you than plutonium is truly sick. I won’t dignify a response for this bullshit, except to say I’m aware that I said I took the vaxx, and I shouldn’t have, but c’mon am I wrong here?

        Maybe I am wrong about radiation, bur how could I be? What say you Night Owl, my friend who hates me?

            The proper reaction is to refute such tomfoolery rather than censor it.

            Nuclear weapons-as-hoax is even more risible than moon landing-as-hoax. If my father were still alive, he would have roasted anyone proposing that there are no nukes, since he himself was in a highly publicized, televised test, marched up to the vaporized stump of the detonation tower, and heard the Geiger counters clicking as they swept over his fatigues.
            My husband, a NASA retiree, is able to make short work of the faked moon landing arguments, but there are far more irradiated people like my late father to attest to the effects of plutonium. They should counter daft scrolls like the one above.

            “My husband, a NASA retiree, is able to make short work of the faked moon landing argument”

            I’d be interested to hear his counterpoints, as there is quite a pile of evidence that it never happened.

            Most fascinating is that we and no one else has ever been back. Particularly paired with the NASA claims that they “lost the technology.”

            That last line remains one of the funniest statements I have ever heard (in context).

          • The Man They Call Zazelle November 29, 2023 at 8:49 am #

            I never really looked into the moon landing hoax thing except very recently but only very cursorily.

            But one thing I especially recalled which was kind of amusing, was a statement to the effect that it would be more expensive and/or harder or at least as much trouble to fake a convincing moon landing than to actually go and do one for real.

            Here’s a cute comic on the subject:

          • Anthea November 29, 2023 at 3:17 pm #

            The only thing you need to do to realize that the moon landing was a hoax is to look at pictures of the lunar module: a camping tent in very poor condition, being held together with mylar duct tape, adorned with an irregularly shaped piece of roofing paper, standing of PVC stilts that are also adorned with mylar duct tape. (Why?)

            It may be the most ridiculous production I’ve ever seen.

            You can see the pictures and read the analysis on “wagging the moon doggie.”

          • Night Owl November 29, 2023 at 3:29 pm #

            Yeah, Anth. Aside from all the nonsense about losing the telemmetry tapes and the “technology” (NASA’s own admissions), I recall visiting the Air and Space Museum in DC many times.

            They had the moon lander on display and the Russian “bathtub.”

            If you have ever seen those in person, the idea that that kind of equipment was used in space is beyond comical.

            And, hey, we have never done it again, because it’s just too darn hight tech.

            😀

          • Paula D November 29, 2023 at 7:30 pm #

            Why the Mylar? Because that Mylar tape is what protected the lander from the extreme heat, cold, and radiation of space, doncha know?

            The secret is Mylar.

            Well, there must have been other secrets also, since losing the papers (the dog ate them) is why the US hasn’t been back, and no other country has been able to duplicate the feat.

    This is important information for dog lovers.

    14 states have reported dogs have come down with a respiratory illness that is killing a significant number of them.

    Here is the story plus a couple of comments.

    The illness presents as:

    1. A chronic mild to moderate tracheobronchial sudden or long term inflammation of the tracheal and/or bronchial airways lasting 6-8 weeks that is not responsive to antibiotics. Harsh coughing accompanies this phase.

    2. Chronic pneumonia not responsive to antibiotics.

    3. Acute pneumonia that quickly turns severe in as little as 24-36 hours.

    Symptoms. Coughing, SOB, wheezing, dehydration, fever, nasal discharge, weight loss, lethargy

    Comments: If this was talking about humans, it sounds just like Covid.

    My wife and I have been suffering from a tracheobronchial inflammation producing copious mucus and harsh coughing that in my case is non responsive to steroids or antibiotics. So far, no pneumonia, just this nagging cough that is uncontrollable. Me, 9 weeks and it is slowly abating, my wife 3 weeks and still intense, Clearing the mucus stops the cough.

    Don’t try to equate us with covid, the only sequelae I had from the disease last year was
    vertigo and the moment this cough started in Scotland, on our cruise, the vertigo went away.

    How much do we know about cross infection with dogs?

      I know of no respiratory viruses that infect both dogs and humans.

      Sounds like another “Your dog can give you covid, kill it now” bullshit story.
      That didn’t fly 3 years ago. Most people reacted by saying “They come for my dog, they will becomes dog food”, so they dropped it. But they never stop with their dastardly plans.

      Would the US develop a disease that targeted dogs? Yes, yes, it would.

      Why do you think they work on anthrax and bird flu? They try to kill off animals raised for food and use it on animals. This started way back in the 50s, when they targeted pigs in Korea (and later in Cuba).

      They don’t want us to have pets, that is clear. Climate change, doncha know.

      • JohnAZ November 27, 2023 at 8:13 pm #

        I know of no respiratory viruses—-

        Yet!!

        When covid was IDed, I remember that dogs and cats were affected, then nothing on the subject.

        My comments were aimed at the similarities of the three situations, strange the similarities.

        What a deal, all those dog farts are going to heat the planet, right?

        • Paula D November 27, 2023 at 8:32 pm #

          No, John, dogs and cats were NOT affected. That was a psyops designed to get people to kill their pets. You remember the propaganda, which as I said, was dropped when Americans got violent thoughts about anyone who would come for their beloved dog.

          The SARS 2 virus was a bat virus, with a CRISPR insert designed to infect human ACE receptor cells. Not only did that alteration make the virus no longer infective to bats, it had no affect on dogs. Or cats. Or tigers (remember when they floated that totally bogus story?)

          As I said, they dropped it because the vast majority of Americans did not fall for it.
          Present company excepted.

          Yeah, dog farts, indeed.

          • GreenAlba November 27, 2023 at 10:33 pm #

            They’re doing it with cats here – scare stories in the media about some weird cat thing coming from somewhere else where thousands of cats have died. It’s endless. Eventually it will be goldfish, hamsters and stick insects – they’ll need mRNA injections.

            This playbook can go on forever. Claim there is an enemy that no one can see (and of which they never show us any definitive proof), keep everyone in a constant state of fear (which naturally generates poor health), and then use that fear for acquiescence to the further rollout of the medical terror state.

            Then kill them off with injections at varying rates depending on shot potency and physical health.

            That is one of the weird points, Paula, no pneumonia for 9 weeks. Mucus inflammation just stays in the deep throat, sometimes into larynx to affect voice.

            Just inflammation causing mucus, the MDs do not have a clue.

    Why is this happening?

    A “red state brain drain” is happening across the country where educated professionals are leaving Republican-leaning states in favor of blue ones. This migration, already affecting economically challenged states, is exacerbated by what is termed “radical Republicanism.” The New Republic’s article, “The Red State Brain Drain Isn’t Coming. It’s Happening Right Now,” highlights the departure of college-educated workers, particularly in academia and healthcare. Professionals are relocating due to concerns about restrictive laws, such as those impacting abortion rights, leading to predictions of a worsening healthcare system and reduced access to women’s health services. The education sector is also affected, with teachers resisting imposed restrictions on curriculum and book bans, contributing to declining education quality in these states. Additionally, some Republicans are perceived as potentially welcoming the deterioration of public education, aligning with their agenda to promote voucher programs and charter schools, further undermining public education.

      Sounds like bullshit to me. More likely, professors and doctors are leaving the poorer areas of the country, because they can’t make as much money there.

      I remember a neurosurgeon standing in the ER, loudly proclaiming that he had operated on every back in southern Il., and there was no more money to be made here.
      Then he left. In an interview with the local paper, he claimed he was leaving because of “high malpractice insurance” cost.

      That’s how they do.

        • benr November 28, 2023 at 9:43 am #

          They left because crime is out of control!
          They left because the streets are filthy, have potholes everywhere and gas is over 4 dollars a gallon.
          Car registration is a complete rip off!
          Trash every, homeless people squatting on almost every street corner!
          Gangs, drugs, graffiti, car break ins.

        • Anthea November 29, 2023 at 12:31 pm #

          @ jackrabbit:

          I’m curious which “they,” who “can’t fill…jobs that require expertise” you are referring to. (Are these private businesses that can’t fill jobs, or are they government entities?)

          The people who are able to do jobs that require expertise are the state’s intelligent and capable people. These would generally be people who would like to buy affordable homes, pay reasonable taxes (including property taxes), send their kids to good (non-woke, non-diverse) schools where said kids would actually get an education, enjoy reasonable prices for life’s necessitites, enjoy a relatively crime-free environment, be able to defend their families if confronted with violence, not be constantly troubled by homeless people pitching tents on the sidewalk in front of their homes and workplaces, and not be troubled by streets littered with needles, trash, and shit.

          These are the issues that drive away intelligent and capable people.

          You did not specify the conservative “rabid batshit insanity” that you claim is driving away the intelligent and capable people. Perhaps you believe that such people leave because they are dismayed that their “red” area has made drag queen story hours and drag shows for kids unavailable. Or maybe they are dismayed because they can’t find a company to work for or a school to send their kids to that is “diverse” and “woke” enough. Or maybe they leave in search of a higher-tax, higher-crime, higher-cost region. Presumablly, some people value these things. But it’s usually not intelligent, capable people.

      The actual data show that there is a very substantial out-migration from blue states and cities to red states. There is doubtless a very narrow range of “professionals” who would leave red areas for blue-er pastures for peddling “woke” ideology in academia or running abortion clinics for parting out babies, or operating sexual-mutilation clinics. Overall, however the migration is away from blue cities and states.

    I didn’t learn actual American history, as I have pointed out before. The history I learned focused on wars, slavery…..and that’s about it.

    My friend shared this article about our owners’ love for Alexander Hamilton, written just after Trump’s election.

    People interested in how we got the national debt and why we got the gold standard may be interested.

    But I thought this was particularly interesting. I wonder why no one brought this up after the Jan. 6th “insurrection”.

    ” Most popular accounts of the hard-fought 1800 ballot focus on Hamilton’s relationship with John Adams, his endorsement of Jefferson, and the Burr-Jefferson soap opera—and how all of these personal intrigues culminated in an eventual tie among electors. In fact, this is so well known that liberals unhappy with the outcome of the 2016 election tried to convince members of the Electoral College to overturn Trump’s victory, and titled their project “Hamilton electors.””

          Are flame throwers legal?
          I don’t see a difference between burning to death with willey pete or sticky fuel sprayed and ignited.
          Both are pretty gruesome ways to die.

          WWI Germany attempted to outlaw Shotguns while still using bayonets with saw blades cut into them.

          I’m pretty sure the way the Shani Louk was raped repeatedly then murdered was a pretty gruesome way to die.
          Should we discuss the way these barbarians paraded around the streets with her naked corpse and mishandled her body dragging it around the streets?

          The Geneva convention does not cover out of uniform combatants (terrorists)by the way when they break its covenants and Hamas has broken all of them.
          Hamas by definition including their own is a terrorist organization.

          The other Geneva Conventions are not applicable in this situation but only the provisions contained within Article 3,[25] and additionally within the language of Protocol II. The rationale for the limitation is to avoid conflict with the rights of Sovereign States that were not part of the treaties. When the provisions of this article apply, it states that:[43]

          Persons taking no active part in the hostilities, including members of armed forces who have laid down their arms and those placed hors de combat by sickness, wounds, detention, or any other cause, shall in all circumstances be treated humanely, without any adverse distinction founded on race, colour, religion or faith, sex, birth or wealth, or any other similar criteria. To this end, the following acts are and shall remain prohibited at any time and in any place whatsoever with respect to the above-mentioned persons:

          violence to life and person, in particular murder of all kinds, mutilation, cruel treatment and torture;
          taking of hostages;
          outrages upon dignity, in particular humiliating and degrading treatment; and
          the passing of sentences and the carrying out of executions without previous judgment pronounced by a regularly constituted court, affording all the judicial guarantees which are recognized as indispensable by civilized peoples.
          The wounded and sick shall be collected and cared for.

    It seems that sleeping with an infected person is not good a good idea. My wife who got a cold at our friend’s celebration of life party has now given it to me. If plumbers could fix drippy and leaky noses I would have called him. The fluid has been pouring out of my nose all day; I must have used up a box full of Kleenex and sneezed all day.

    Usually, when I get a cold I also get a sore throat, but not this time. All in all I don’t feel too bad, just pretty tired. My immune system is probably in reasonably good shape. Or so I hope.

    • JohnAZ November 27, 2023 at 10:11 pm #

      Bill

      Our “colds” are really weird. I “caught” mine in Scotland, my wife’s in Chicago, both symptoms are identical.

      Cough up mucus, worse at night, itchy throat sore at times, impervious to all cough remedies, mucinex, antibiotics and steroids. Mine is at last stages now after 9 weeks, my wife is at wee 4 and still deep in the coughing stage. That is all, cough and mucus, no pneumonia, no runny nose, no nasal congestion, no fever, at the worst part some lethargy. When I am in dry phase I have a very slight sore throat. When a coughing jag comes on, it is irrepressible.

      We have slept apart since the cruise just because one of us is coughing all the time.

      I am wondering about our immune response as we have both had the vaxx and the disease. As I have stated, I had vertigo as a sequelae to our Covid last November, weirdly, whatever this is cleared up the vertigo.

      • GreenAlba November 27, 2023 at 10:25 pm #

        Probably nothing to do with your situation, John, but my grandson’s dad was coughing for ages, to the point where he had scans in case it was lung cancer. Turned out it wasn’t. He has since discovered or decided that he is gluten intolerant – he quit eating gluten and the cough disappeared.

        I think he’s double jabbed. My husband has become lactose intolerant since his 3 jabs, although he’d never admit a connection (he puts everything down to age). It would seem to fit the pattern of some of the adverse vaxx reactions that people would acquire more intolerances, if their immune systems are affected. Andrew Bridgen, the MP who is speaking out about ‘vaccine’ harms, developed hay fever after his jabs, which he’d never had before.

        This crap is messing with every possible aspect of people’s health.

            That was interesting. My impression is that you are telling me that it all happened before. If I recall correctly the Incas and Toltecs believed that very ancient civilizations basically had weapons that could destroy entire cities and maybe more. And actually they destroyed themselves. I’m sure you maybe have heard about that. So if history does repeat itself or at least rhyme like they say then maybe it is true.

        If you have been watching, physics is taking a beating right now. Cosmology specifically.

        The Webb telescope is finding galaxies out at the supposed edge of the observable universe that are as mature as the Milky Way whereas they should be infantile in development.

        Oops!

        Newer info may be saying that galaxies are being detected that are older than the 13 billion and change age of the Big Bang.

        The entire Big Bang scenario is being challenged right now.

        All of the “facts” are actually theories that are constantly being changed with new data.

        Before the advent of history being written down, it is a guessing game what human history was.
        Civilizations have been found around the world stemming from the same time frame. The obvious question is, how did a one source human lineage do that?

        Alternate theory:

        There was a human type diversified specie or species that spread throughout the world prior to a catastrophic event in the past, possibly the same one that destroyed North America’s mega fauna. Genetic studies have shown that the human species was destroyed at one point down to a couple thousand individuals.

            At the same time, I imagine you’re aware how people and their media can take others’ words, theories, notions, etc. and throw them through their own ‘processors’, to suit their own.

            There’s your reality, my reality, others’ realities and then objective or real reality that no one can ever know for certain. This is perhaps because, if they knew it, by extension, they’d know everything, since everything is what goes into the reality that goes into us.

    Mercedes, a Nicaraguan mother who, with her husband, brought their six young children to the country, tells FOX 5 NY she’s aware some people in the community are more supportive than others.

    But they’re hungry.

    New York City Councilmember Julie Won said she needed to intervene after a fight between members of the two groups broke out at a food pantry, sending one person to the hospital.

    “Right here, you have the largest population of public housing in a single unit of the whole country who are living 200% below the poverty line,” Won said. [not all yellow people are good at math].

    Why the msm tells you that Orban is a right wing madman….

    ” One of the strengths of Americans is their ability to present what is really an American interest as a universal value.
    It seems like a small trick. But it has serious consequences intellectually, because if you frame foreign policy on the basis of values, hiding your interests, you deny yourself the opportunity for meaningful dialog
    . At the end of the day, one is not trying to align interests, one has to choose the values proclaimed by the other side. You can’t defend yourself against what you know are actually American interests, because then you have to argue against those values.
    That’s what happens day and night. We can’t have meaningful discussions on major foreign policy issues because no one is willing to commit to representing their own interest.”

    Not a decade ago Syrian Army units, using Russian supplied mass artillery, leveled a dozen cities in Syria, including Raqqa, Aleppo, Homs , & Damascus, killing perhaps 250,000 Arabs Nobody got worked up about it. There were no mass demonstrations in London, NYC or on the campus of Brown-shirt University in Providence, RI. Ammad wasn’t worried about civilian casualties or being accused of genocide. NO BIG DEAL. Suddenly, with Israel involved, civilian casualties are something to worry about. I’d say Israel has shown remarkable restraint in dealing with Gaza; the IDF could easily level Gaza, but it hasn’t. What did Hamas expect when they raided Israel last October? Did they think Israel would surrender, roll over, not respond? A cynic would say that Hamas got the exact reaction they wanted from Israel, a provocation designed ultimately to invoke sympathy from the European & American left. Its the old passive/aggressive game.

        Russia and Iran are countering USA moves in the region, moves that protect Israel and Saudi Arabia. Iran knows that if their goal to kill all the Jews was to ever be attempted, Teheran would be toast. These two sound like the USA and USSR in the 1950-1960s, mutual destruction.

        Interesting to see Russia getting involved with BRICS++ geopolitics, kinda like the USA with all the shenanigans we have pulled since JFK was killed.

        Yes, JFK, it sure is looking like he was ordered assassinated by his own intelligence community because he was just about to back out of a lot of confrontations with Russia including Viet Nam. Dulles would have been involved with decision making and JFK had just fired him. Dulles was on the Warren Commission.

      It was US backed terrorists who were responsible for killing 250,000 Syrians. That is why no one got worked up about it. They used vicious attacks targeting civilians, including beheading people and burning people alive, but, you know, they were “freedom fighters” so it was cool.
      Russia and Syria used the same civilian-sparing tactics that Russia is using in the Donbass now. They kept opening humanitarian corridors, and the terrorists kept attacking civilians trying to leave.
      They used infantry in areas with embedded terrorist, instead of indiscriminate bombing.

      It was the US who leveled Raqqa. Only the Syrians and Russians were upset about that.

      Russia and Syria did not level Aleppo. They got the terrorists out of eastern Aleppo, which included destruction there, and there was a great outcry about that in the Mighty Wurlitzer of propaganda.

      Save Our Terrrorists! was the backdrop to the constant propaganda about the poor, poor freedom fighters in eastern Aleppo.

      Remember Bana al-Abed? “It’s better to start WW3 than to allow Holocaust Aleppo.”?
      Remember the “Last hospital in Aleppo”? The weekly announcement that yet another last hospital had been destroyed? There must have been a hospital on every corner.

      Remember the man who saved cats in Aleppo? We had to denounce the Syrian/Russian attempt to remove the terrorists from eastern Aleppo because……Cats Lives Matter.

      It was around this time of year in 2016 when eastern Aleppo was finally liberated, and the entire city celebrated liberation and Christmas with the Christians .

      The coverage of Aleppo stopped after the liberation, although Bana al-Abed, who we were told was about to be genocided by the Evil Russians, showed up alive, first on Erdogan’s knee, then at the Oscars, where the clueless assholes assembled gave her the kind of standing ovation we now see given to Zelensky and the Waffen SS veteran.

      Damascus was not leveled.

      I get your point about targeted outrage, curated for the needs of our ruling overlords, but, again, Raqqa was a US atrocity and eastern Aleppo is much better off without being occupied by terrorists.

        Is that in the same provided video link? And is that meant as Netanyahu, alone, is ‘finished’ as a political figure or Israel as a political entity? If the latter, when might Israel be ‘finished’?

    Looks like Xi’s meeting with Biden and Newsom is already paying off.

    “CHINA has brought back masks and social distancing in a chilling echo of lockdown as they battle a mystery pneumonia outbreak four years on from Covid.

    “Alarming footage has emerged of mask-wearing crowds inside Chinese hospitals as fears of a new pandemic sweep across the globe.”

    Right in time for the 2024 elections. The CCP is doing the bidding for Biden and his minions. China will do what they can to ensure that the Big Guy gets what he wants.

      When I visited Hong Kong and Singapore in the Navy, 1972, I was amazed at how many people were there and how crowded the streets were. Asians have very little personal space in their cities.

      I have always believed that there is a relationship between infectious disease communication and something called average personal space. That is why, IMHO, Asia always seems to start all the flu epidemics.

      BTW, my tracheal inflammation cough is about gone, and my wife’s is starting to abate, Fox News Dr. Seigal this morning was talking about a new pneumonia that is starting to show up in China and some parts of the US. Its symptoms are familiar. Not Covid. He was talking about a new form of bacteria that is not responsive to antibiotics. Hmmm.

        Also, it seems to me that Newsom is almost leading a California separation situation drawing closer to China than the East Coast USA.

        Could it be that foreign influence is what will separate the country with each section going its own way with a foreign influence. I can definitely see parts of the country moving toward BRICS++, mostly western and Red, and the East Coast with the WEF and Europe.

      I feel that the WEF and CCP are on opposite ends of the power spectrum in the world.

      Biden seems to be palling around with both of them. Does his ego think that he can intermediate between them?

      The Biden Mob are invested in both sides, the WEF with Ukraine and Israel, and China with ignorance of the border and favored nation tolerance with the economy.

      I wonder what he really wants? No matter which way he turns, it seems like the USA is the last concern for him.

    Someone was pointing out to our host recently that we get a lot of writers describing our problems but few offering solutions. Here is why:

    “There is only one way to gain freedom, one way to break the chains that bind you, and one solution to this madness. Freedom will never happen until each individual is fully and totally responsible for himself. No government jobs, no government checks, no ‘free healthcare,’ no state police, no federal military, no subsidies, no government schools, no social security, no Medicare, no money printing, no ‘stimulus,’ no unemployment ‘insurance,’ no way to rob and force your neighbors to pay for your obligations by voting for theft; in essence, no government whatsoever. When your life is your responsibly entirely, so that your only incentive is to take care of yourself or die, then and only then can you be free.”

      De-Powerization & The Solutionary

      Good points from Rockwell of course…

      Someone was pointing out to our host recently that we get a lot of writers describing our problems but few offering solutions. Here is why…” ~ messianicdruid

      They might be me, though maybe others as well, since there appears to be gaining traction in this regard from increasing corners & avenues of the internet and real life where people are increasingly realizing that they’re being pimped and played by State governments. It’s making me feel a little left behind, if in a good way.

      In any case, it is not just a matter of ‘Here is why…’, but actually doing something solutionary. Hey, new word maybe.

      As for ‘government’, Rockwell might agree that it may be possible to have one of an anarchist(/libertarian?) stripe where it is opt-inable and opt-outable at an indiv’s whim/freedom and where those ‘governments’ are maybe called something else that doesn’t sound like royalty, like ‘the people’s marionettes’ and when in such a capacity, they are considered not ‘in power’ but, rather, ‘in service’.

      Language, as we understand, affects the thinking and therefore the doing, so ‘power’ is probably not the right word for those in it.

      I asked the question what the difference is between being burned to death with WP or flame thrower?
      The rules are arbitrary at best.
      DEAD is DEAD.
      What is the difference between having your legs blown off or burned off?
      Even more to the point you DOLT Hamas is not following the geneva accord.

      Its obvious you suffer some reading comprehension deficit however I will break it down for you again.

      Germany was using bayonets modified to tear peoples guts out when used while trying to outlaw shotguns.
      Meaning the banning of one type of weapon makes no sense when looked through the prism of a painful death is a painful death.
      Being gutshot with a 12 guage 00 CAN’T BE ANY WORSE THAN A 18″ long bayonet with a saw tooth sharpened into the blade ripping your guts out.

      The process of dying is often slow and painful and in war it should be so no one wants to go to war and only as a last resort.
      Thus knowing their citizens might die slow painful deaths if they do go to war countries try and avoid it at all costs.

      Naw to much money involved that would be silly.

          While there are legitimate uses of white phosphorus, using the munition, “against any military objective within concentrations of civilians is prohibited unless the military objective is clearly separated from the civilians,” Peter Herby wrote in a 2009 opinion for the International Committee of the Red Cross.

          It is not clear if this incident would be considered a violation of the laws of armed conflict, Castner wrote in an email.

          “We would need to know more about the intended target of this attack, and the intended use of the white phosphorus, to make a definite legal judgment about this particular case,” Castner wrote. “But generally, any attacks that fail to discriminate between civilians and military forces can potentially be a violation of the laws of war.”

          Israel repeatedly used white phosphorus during its 22-day long campaign in Gaza that spanned the end of 2008 to early 2009, including over populated areas, killing and injuring civilians, and violating International Humanitarian Law, a 2009 report from Human Rights Watch found.

          HAMAS IS NOT A MILITARY they are by definition civilians!
          They also clearly prefer to fight using civilian populations as shields once again for propaganda uses.
          They are putting people in GAZA in harms way by their actions so catch 22.
          No win situation if Israel fails to respond it’s win for hamas and win Israel does respond we get more of this hand wringing bullshit.

          Typical Muslim tactics sue for peace and use it to rearm and then attack while claiming the other side broke the peace.
          Only way Israel wins in this is to once again flatten all of gaza once and for all leaving nothing for anyone to fight over.

          • OG November 28, 2023 at 7:11 pm #

            Kidnap and rape them MURDER HUNDREDS!
            This just before a key peace deal with many of the larger Sunni nations I might add!
            Hamas attacks the other country from Hospitals and schools uses tunnels like rats in populated areas and when the response comes, they wring their hands and act like the response was not warranted.
            This has been going on for longer than I have been alive and leftist turds are taking sides and literally ignoring the simple fact

            The Palestinians elected Hamas and are now stewing in their support for this group just like when they elected the rotten PLO who enriched themselves on the misery and got fat off the welfare state.
            I don’t see any other country over there lift a finger to feed, water or deal with the sewage from these people and for doing even these basics the Israelis get attacked.

    Human Ancestry Correlates With Language And Reveals That Race Is Not An Objective Genomic Classifier
    (nature.com/articles/s41598-017-01837-7)

    Abstract

    Genetic and archaeological studies have established a sub-Saharan African origin for anatomically modern humans with subsequent migrations out of Africa. Using the largest multi-locus data set known to date, we investigated genetic differentiation of early modern humans, human admixture and migration events, and relationships among ancestries and language groups. We compiled publicly available genome-wide genotype data on 5,966 individuals from 282 global samples, representing 30 primary language families. The best evidence supports 21 ancestries that delineate genetic structure of present-day human populations. Independent of self-identified ethno-linguistic labels, the vast majority (97.3%) of individuals have mixed ancestry, with evidence of multiple ancestries in 96.8% of samples and on all continents. The data indicate that continents, ethno-linguistic groups, races, ethnicities, and individuals all show substantial ancestral heterogeneity.

        Reality is probably is a whole lot bigger, more complex and more nuanced than inside our little heads, despite what our little heads seem to want for reality and project onto/into it.

        I’m about to make another chocolate marble cheesecake, but this time, I will add more chocolate to it, maybe even forget about marbling it and just mix it all in and make it a straight-up chocolate cheesecake. We’ll see.

        For its choco-crust, I will also be trying to make my own, (instead of using a box of Oreo Cookie Crumbs), using a judicious, maybe even prejudicial, mix of cocoa powder (dark), brown sugar (lighter) and salted butter (lightest) that gets pre-baked before the cheesecake mixture is added.

            I might look into their recipes online to see if they are more muffin-like or bread-like and maybe even consider baking some.

            I like quiches and savories too.

            Having just returned from the grocery store, despite my cheesecake plans, I succumbed to a discount on some (too-dry just found out) cinnamon buns of the kinds we can get in indoor shopping malls at their food courts over here, that can go by the names, Saint Cinnamon, or Cinnabon.

            The kinds of malls that JHK and Duncan Crary might have visited and done a kinda-cute podcast or two about.

            So what I just did was pull a few off the group, pull each a little apart, place them in a small stainless steel bowl that, in turn, was placed in a larger bowl, filled with a bit of water and a pot lid place on top, and re-baked for 20 minutes at 330 degrees. Night and day! Just finished one: Warm and moist.

            Now I’m washing them down after the cold milk and slowly getting tipsy with a ‘Cabana Coast Dirty Shirley’ (7% vodka and grenadine soda cocktail).

    Civil War in Yemen, a proxy SArabia-Iran conflict, also to some extent Shiah vs Sunni Muslim 2014-2022: 377,000 killed, hundreds of thousands more wounded & displaced.

    Can’t be blamed on Israel and ‘the Jews’, so no problemo apparently. No mobs in the streets of European Capitals chanting about genocide, calling for a ceasefire, condemning Iran or the Saudi Kingdom. It didn’t seem like anybody really gave a sh#t about ‘Arab lives’ then. It was just a year or two ago. The only organization in the west that even addressed the Yemen Civil War was Code Pink. Something else then is driving the opprobrium directed at Israel we’ve seen on elite college campuses, in London & NYC, and when I hear baying aliens chant slogans on Times Square & on the Columbia campus that sound like they were written by Julius Streicher, I think I know what it is.

Also mildly amusing is the gullibility for Hamas propaganda among those who pride themselves on instantly seeing through every conspiracy. Human Rights Watch, about as left wing an organization as you can find, recently called bullshit on the worstest war crime ever, the Al-whatever hospital bombing and I saw another article from the AP (the AP ferchisssakes !) calling bullshit on AI generated deepfakes coming out of Gaza yet the intrepid internet sleuths buy the bullshit almost every time.

      There is one curious thing though about all this supposed targeting of civilians. The Hamas rockets, after Oct 7th, raining down like dollar bills at the local strip joint (each one a war crime btw) even prior to the ceasefire had all but stopped. It sounds like that “civilian targeting” was apparently also targeting civilians with rocket launchers. Go figure…

        “Yeah. The most guarded border on earth was breached fifteen (15) times with holes big enough to have convoys of terrorists on dirt bikes maraude while paraglider tandems flocked the skies on dual paraglider trikes to and fro. And we were sleeping through it all, see? Bushed. 7+ hours of “nappy news.” Out like a light we all were like dozens and even hundreds of Jeffrey Epstein prison guards. Yeah, that’s what happened so they’re the bad guys, see? Now we’ve got no choice but to genocide 2.2mm of them and conquest Gaza for our plans for it which are even way better than Lahaina‘s.”

      The Mighty Wurlitze r of propaganda, which is controlled by the US Empire, in return controls the minds of most of the people of the west.
      Even people in targeted countries get the same propaganda, which has always amazed me. Such power!

      The blockade and bombing of Yemen was supported by the US, which is why there were no demonstrations against or outrage expressed about it, even when the Saudis bombed a school bus full of students, burning them alive. No response, zip, nada.
      The US Navy helped with the blockade. No one cared.

      I don’t know why the current propaganda has shifted away from supporting Israel, but it is obvious and clear.

      Those here who follow the new line think they are doing it out of their own wise judgement and discernment, but when you slavishly follow the Official Narrative, are you really thinking for yourself?

          Hamas, which most definitely doesn’t support your two state solution, won power in an election in 2006 (I know you will tell us all that the election was CIA Mossad performance art but it’s the only thing we have to go on since Hamas has cancelled all elections since). So ostensibly a plurality of Palis must have supported the Hamas platform in 2006.

            Hamas is a Mossad/CIA/MI6 black operative. 2,200,000 Gazans have been living in a concentration camp for 3/4 of a century!

            Most people want a two-state solution. Hamas are not most people. Their leaders are billionaires living at the Four Seasons in Qatar. How did they become as rich as Zilensky? D’uh!

            After 3/4 century of living in a concentration camp, you ridicule the Gazans voting for change? May you never face what they deal with their entire lives.

            You believe that Israelis dancing with joy and “documenting the event” (i.e. 9/11) is some weird, discarded, irrelevant fact. You disregard all facts that you do not like because that’s what GLT 0s do. Day in and day out. For decades.

            And so what, what does her being interviewed change about the bombing itself? I read she had a clinical fellowship at Harvard Medical School in Boston so obviously has connections to that place. It’s an event that attracts people from all over the world. She is heavily involved in public life. There would have been journos all over that event. Isn’t it likely that if someone like her stepped up for interview it would be accepted and shown at some point? Or are TPTB fucking with your mind? What does it achieve for them having all these supposed Easter eggs? They’re toying with you, Owl, those dastardly buggers!

          • Night Owl November 30, 2023 at 7:28 am #

            It is part of pattern recognition. A suspicious event takes place and the same individuals pop up repeatedly.

            This is a basic starting point in investigative journalism, for example.

            Why would Leana Wen be put on CNN during that event? Of all the people at that event (thousands)? Wen is on camera being interviewed as though she is some rando they pulled out of the crowd.

            Then during the Coroneau, she is their cheif medical expert calling for lockdowns and punishment for the “unvaccinated.”

          Documentary evidence moved to the building just prior? Firstly, how do you know this, where is the evidence, or was it just made up on the internet to fit a story? Secondly, I don’t recall a prolonged fire. A massive blast would jettison, not destroy, many documents far and wide. Not wise if you want rid of them. There would have been much easier ways to get rid of documents, in or prior to transit, than have them taken to a building to then have its face blown off. I’m a zero.

    What is amazing is that people on this board will strenuously argue that there is no such things as war crimes or international law in war, that all countries are the same, and they all do Shock and Awe on civilians.

    Why no cognitive dissonance? The last 22 months has been an example of a country which has gone to war without targeting civilians. No white phosphorus, no cluster bombs, no starving of children.
    How do you make a claim like that when contrary evidence is staring you in the face?

    You can’t say it’s down the Memory Hole, because it is ongoing.

    It is simply ignored, while wild claims are made that make it clear it is being ignored.

    Damn! The power of propaganda!

      At least 10,000 civilians, including over 560 children, have been killed and more than 18,500 injured since Russia launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February last year, the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission there said on Tuesday.

      You know, that’s the same UN that has passed resolutions every 15 minutes condemning Israel.

      So either both things are true or both are bullshit but you can’t pick and choose which civilians are legitimate targets and which are not. It’s either all collateral damage or it’s all war crimes.

      I hold that the delicate feelings for civilians are a product of our bloated degenerate time and that the world is moving back to its default state of not giving a damn about how many civilians who are “in the way” have to be moved out of the way. All systems seek an equilibrium and that is it, like it or not.

      • Paula D November 30, 2023 at 3:00 pm #

        The civilians killed in the Donbass have been killed by the same forces that have been killing them since 2014- the post-coup Kiev regime.

        Even now, as DPR/Russian forces move on Avdeeka, where the Kiev forces are deeply embedded, and from where most of the missile attacks on the civilians of Donestsk have emanated, the attacks continue.
        A Himars attack on Donestsk last week killed more civilians.

        Ask your self what kind of people, embedded into someone else’s land, and facing imminent overrunning by the militias protecting them, would bother to use scarce ammo on blowing up a concert gathering or a marketplace?

        Yeah, that’s who Russia is fighting.

        Personally, I think there are American mercenaries embedded with them, because we are told that the Himaars are operated by Americans, since they didn’t have time to train the Kiev nazis.

        But do go on believing the UN. The UN, which also announced that they had no idea who was bombing the Zaporizhia NPP, even though they had a team there inspecting it.
        The US, of course, claims that Russia is bombing its own nuclear power plant, on its own territory, with its own citizens inside. Sure, dudes. Only complete idiots would believe that. And yet……

        Nope, says the UN, we can’t figure out such a difficult problem as figuring out where the missiles are coming from. It is a great mystery, my son.

        Very reliable source. (Snark)

          I don’t know if self-awareness is your defining trait because if it were, you might realize that your standard pattern when presented with death tolls created by someone other than the Yanks or the Yids is to deny that those deaths were caused by the country/group who everybody is pretty sure caused them and blame somebody else. It’s almost a nervous tic.

          I don’t take anything from the UN at face value and I also think that Russia has every right to fight in Ukraine and will ultimately prevail but your bullshit detector has to be defective to believe that Russia hasn’t killed civilians or even cares that they have done so. My point which you evidently missed was that the UN and its fellow travelers are accusing Israel of the same thing that they are accusing Russia of. You apparently think one set of accusations is true while the other is preposterous which is what I think we could call a logical inconsistency but then again, I think you once asserted that before the 20th century, wars didn’t target civilians, an assertion that can be easily disproven by a mountain of evidence.

          • Paula D November 30, 2023 at 8:44 pm #

            I consider it hypocrisy, not logical inconsistency, because the UN condemns Israel for that which it ignores when the US or its proxies do it.

            It is logical inconsistency to believe that Russia is targeting civilians, when all the evidence (not put out by msm and believed by “everybody” who swallows msm bullshit), is that the civilians being killed in Ukraine are almost all Donbass citizens, the ones Russia intervened to protect.
            It makes no sense to believe that Russia is deliberately targeting Donbass civilians, no matter what the msm says.

            It makes more logical consistency to understand that the same embedded Kiev forces that have been killing civilians for 10 years have upped the ante since the SMO started.

            I think that my point about civilians being killed in the 20th century was that every war led to a higher proportion of civilian to soldier deaths. I have seen the stats and they convinced me.
            If you have a mountain of evidence that says otherwise, you are welcome to post it.

          • King of Comedy November 30, 2023 at 9:27 pm #

            Russia has killed no civilians in Ukraine? That’s your story? Russia must have perfected those smart bombs which only explode when they see a uniform.

            On the civilian casualty front, the Mongol invasions in the 13th century are estimated to have killed 1/10 of the population of the planet at the time, 40 million people. And that’s just one conflict out of hundreds. You are going to argue most of those 40 million were combatants? It strains credibility.

    Sadly, as long as there is war, there will be war crimes. It happens every day. War is hell and those who send you to war in most cases never wear a uniform and profit from the conflicts.
    We foolishly elect people who take us to war and condone it. We suck up all the hype of it is for democracy or it is to save the kids. This is the biggest line of bullshit that was ever created.
    Our powers to be are in it for the money, period. Most haven’t worn a uniform, and their children won’t either. They know that the good patriotic people of this Country will fight for them.
    At this point, Ukraine has become a money laundromat and Israel is hell bent on fighting a war while the U.S. taxpayer gets to pay for it.
    Israel will save their money while we pay! That’s their M.O.
    To date we have wasted 415 billion on illegals! Yet, on a day-to-day basis the TV runs all these commercials begging for money for our Veterans and sick (AMERICAN) kids.
    When will the people of America wake up? Yes, I know after the next NFL game.

    Americans Glimpse Jimmy Carter’s Frailty and His Resolve

    ATLANTA — His face was pale and gaunt, his legs were wrapped in a blanket, and his eyes never seemed to make contact with the family members huddled around him. But on Tuesday, Jimmy Carter was there, in the front row of a church in Atlanta, just a few feet from the coffin holding Rosalynn Carter, his wife of 77 years.

    Carter, 99, was some 164 miles from his home in Plains, Georgia, where he had been in hospice care since February. He was brought into the church in a wheelchair, as the crowd of mourners at the memorial service looked on, many of them catching their first glimpse of him in nine months.

    That he would make such a trek in his condition was, to some, shocking — and, to his family, worrisome.

    Sign up for The Morning newsletter from the New York Times

    And yet, it was also very true to form: a display of the tenacity, bordering on stubbornness, that has been a defining characteristic of Carter, the longest-living president in U.S. history.

    “Come hell or high water, Jimmy Carter was going to use his inner resources to be there,” presidential historian Douglas Brinkley said, adding that the former president “has the most intense willpower of any person I’ve ever known.”

    A strain of determination has always been core to Carter’s identity, particularly when it came to Rosalynn, who rebuffed him when he first asked to marry her. But it has also evolved into a quiet intensity that has propelled him — and at times dismayed his family and aides — as he has repeatedly defied illness and infirmity.

    “He is a man of enormous stamina and strength and will,” author Kai Bird, a Carter biographer, said on CNN, as the memorial service concluded Tuesday.

    In 2019, after a fall left him with a black eye and stitches, he soon showed up to help build houses in Nashville, Tennessee, for Habitat for Humanity. “I had a No. 1 priority, and that was to come to Nashville to build houses,” Carter said at a gathering of volunteers, according to People magazine.

    “One of the things Jesus taught was: If you have any talents, try to utilize them for the benefit of others,” Carter, then 95, told the magazine, which reported that he had 14 stitches on his head. “That’s what Rosa and I have both tried to do.”

    Not long after that, he fractured his pelvis. He ignored pleas from his family and staff and showed up to teach Sunday school at Maranatha Baptist Church, carefully perching on a stool in front of the congregation to offer a simple sermon about being a kind and loving neighbor.

    Afterward, he and his wife stayed in their seats, as dozens of visitors from around the world lined up for pictures with them.

    Jimmy Carter has rarely been seen in public since he entered hospice care, and in May, the Carter Center announced that Rosalynn, a longtime advocate for greater access to mental health care, had dementia. She died on Nov. 19, at age 96.

    Carter’s family expressed concerns that attending Tuesday’s service could be taxing for the former president. But they also recognized the importance of his presence at the church, where he joined some of his successors and every living presidential spouse.

    “He has been this moral rock for so many people, but she really was that rock for him,” his grandson, Jason Carter, said. “He’s glad he’s not going to miss it, but we’re all worried about him.”

    The Carters’ daughter, Amy Carter, said at the service that her father was not able to speak to the attendees. So she read a love letter he wrote to his wife while he served in the Navy more than seven decades ago.

    “My darling, every time I have ever been away from you, I have been thrilled when I returned to discover just how wonderful you are,” Carter wrote in the letter. “While I’m away, I try to convince myself that you really are not, could not be, as sweet and beautiful as I remember. But when I see you, I fall in love with you all over again.”

    “Does that seem strange to you?” he went on. “It doesn’t to me. Goodbye, darling. Until tomorrow, Jimmy.”

    Jarek: A Liberal. Too weak to lead perhaps. But not completely corrupt. The only reason they honor him is because he bowed out before it all went to shit. America would have been a better place if we had listened to some of what he had to say. Weak in some ways, very strong in others are the article says.

    Did he see what the Democrats had become? Or did he blind himself to it as so many have? Did he get the jab? I assume he believe in all that nonsense.

    Charles Blow wants blacks to migrate back to the South. Many of us prefer Africa as the migration destination. He’s the guy who wrote “The Devil You Know, a Black Power Manifesto.” Op-ed columnist for the NYT.

    Here’s some of what he said in an interview:

    ‘The biggest impact, I believe, of reverse migration happened in Georgia. In 2020, it swung for a Democrat for the first time in decades, and it elected two Democratic senators. The last time that a Democrat had won the state of Georgia was Bill Clinton in 1992.
    But the Black population since 1990 doubled in the state of Georgia. It went from 1.7 million Black people to 3.4 million Black people. That meant that their percentages of the electorate went up to about a third. That had a huge impact on that election. And it allowed Black people to be the leading portion of the coalition that swung that state for a Democrat, Joe Biden.’

    Another speaker:

    And then Joe Biden would not be here. He would not have been the Democratic nominee without strong, deep, and wide support from Black voters all across this country. The same very hands that once picked cotton now pick presidents and for the first time in American history, put a Black woman on the ticket as the Vice President-elect of these United States.

    But here’s Blow getting to the heart of the matter:

    ‘That is what to me real power looks like. You can have an impact on the presidency. You can have an impact in the Senate. And you can have an impact on all of the power that states wield, everything from writing the criminal code to education to health care.’

    Yes, make no mistake, it’s all about the power.

    Somehow, I guess Blow figures that enough blacks will remain in the North to keep black mayors, police chiefs, and district attorneys in office. Look at what black power has done to Trump.

    The reason for the open border should be obvious to anyone. Black power and more and more of it. Have you noticed how blacks are growing increasingly dominant in tv, the movies and sports? In politics?

    Here’s a description of the documentary on HBO, “Subjects of Desire”.

    ‘Subjects of Desire explores the cultural shift in North American beauty standards towards embracing Black female aesthetics and features while exposing the deliberate and often dangerous portrayals of Black women in the media.’

    ‘Black female aesthetics’? Many years ago, back in NYC, I entered a not too crowded subway car and sat down. I glanced across the way and came face to face with what was probably the most frightening gorilla I had ever seen. My startled state must have been obvious and for a second or two I actually thought that this beast may have escaped the zoo or circus or something. Poor woman, seeing my apparent shock. Shit no, I said to myself, that couldn’t be, and I just averted my eyes hoping that I wouldn’t be mauled. I was right, it was just a black woman cursed with a gorilla grotesquerie.

    Anyway, blacks are at least in the early stages of takeover per Obama’s radical transformation, and whites seem to have become just a subculture of pathetic peckerwoods.

    What do you think? Did the black and Hispanic gang culture give rise to our present-day gun culture, you know, crips and bloods, etc. from back in the sixties-seventies? The mafia and John Wayne and shit, yeah, that too. No longer the drive-in, but the drive-by. Gang gun culture putting a cap in America’s ass.

    Are young whites still addicted to rap and hip-hop? Snoop Dog is idolized, supposedly the epitome of cool. Yeah, toxic whites, ‘too male, too pale, and too stale’. Blacks have the venom, the henchmen, and the momentum. Sorry ass whites with their thumbs up their rectum.

    • Jarek November 29, 2023 at 2:58 pm #

      Heard a rap or hip hop (or whatever it’s called now) song blaring from a car, with the lyrics “White trash” as the refrain. Looked inside the car – a White guy.

      As Mr Kunstler said, Whites bob their heads to lyrics about White destruction. This guy look lower class so you would think he would know better.

      Disagree a bit. The incomers are mostly brown. They don’t bow down to the Blacks at all. Big conflict brewing there. But yes, lots of Black Africans in some places. They’ll reinforce Black Americans, at least in time. They look askance at them now, but the ones born here will assimilate downwards to their level by and by.

      • tucsonspur November 29, 2023 at 7:59 pm #

        Good point. Mauritanians and other Africans, Haitians, etc. may be in the minority.

        Many from Central America, South America, and even Asia so the black ratio dwindles.

        “There’s No One as Irish as Barack Obama”. Not funny anymore.

        Is Oprah brown or black?

        Blacks can be brown, and browns can be black. The race/color line can often be hard to define.

        • Jarek November 30, 2023 at 1:25 am #

          Well that’s a good point that I haven’t seen much about. There’s obviously a big difference between the Eastern United States and the Western. On the East coast, the Hispanics from the Caribbean have some (or a lot) of Black blood. In the West, they’re from Mexico and Central America and that’s much less true – with each country being its own story of course.

          The conflict will thus be muted by this on the East coast to a considerable degree but flare brightly on the West Coast or wherever the Mexicans and their allied nations take root. Like Chicago or even in some of the cities of the East Coast.

          That’s not to say no conflict. Dominica doesn’t like Haitians sneaking into their part of the island. Does that translate to tension in the United States? Not sure.

    1917 marked the 200th anniversary of Freemasonry, and the masons were out in force in Rome, to celebrate. Their presence in the Eternal City was public, and flagrant. Banners, posters and leaflets were everywhere.

    The young Friar saw, with his own eyes — and recorded the events in his notebooks — blasphemous processions of masons to the Vatican, with the masons singing songs in honor of Satan.

    Some of their banners carried the inscription: “Satan will rule in the Vatican and the Pope will be his slave.”

    This mortal hatred of the Church, of Christ and of his Vicar,” said Maximilian Kolbe, “proceeds from the principle of Freemasonry: the destruction of all religion, but especially the Catholic religion. All over the world the scattered cells of this Mafia strive in the most varied ways, more or less visibly, to reach the same goal. In doing so, it makes use of a whole horde of associations with various names and purposes, which under its influence still spread religious indifference and weaken morality.”

    Me…, So, pray for your enemies using the tools and implements of torture from the cross.

    Do not render evil for evil … If it be possible, as much as is in you, have peace with all men. Revenge not yourselves, my dearly beloved; but give place unto wrath, for it is written: Revenge is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord. But if the enemy be hungry, give him to eat; if he thirst, give him to drink.” (Romans 12)

      We are Christ’s hands here on Earth. We must torture and execute them without losing the love in our hearts. The Inquisition tried to convert people before executing them. As Prabhupad said, Execution by the State negates at least some of the far worse torture they would received in hell ( or in our case, purgatory). Thus it is a mercy.

    Heart attacks hit all time high in jabbed oz.

    Archbishop Carlo Vigano is warning that humanity is in the midst of a global coup d’état and is calling on everyone to fight back or lose everything.

    Vigano claims that Klaus Schwab is threatening the heads of government of the 20 most industrialised nations in the world, in order to carry out the Great Reset.

    “This is the 4th Industrial Revolution”

    He says it is ” a global coup d’etat, against which it is essential that the people rise up. Those who govern nations have all become either enslaved or blackmailed by this international mafia.”

    Viganò has previously declared that globalists George Soros, Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates must be overthrown by the public because they are ‘pure evil’ ….

    My silence comes to make weapons become silent. So that this silence may be established, I come to Earth; today in a different way, given the emergency of these times, given the need of souls, especially of those who cry for Justice and Mercy.

    Behold the Rabbi of Israel, the Master of all peoples and all religions. Because My Heart does not hold differences, My Heart has a place for each people and each nation, that exist for some reason, because each one of them holds in themselves a Treasure of God which must not be lost.

    ….I know that many do not understand why there is so much pain and suffering in the world, why there are so many innocent people who must go through this. Have you ever thought that they offered themselves for that, so that the non-redeemed might be redeemed?

    This is why I spoke to you in recent times about the new martyrs. Day by day, there are many more martyrs in the world, from the unborn to those who die in wars and many more who go through experiences you could not even imagine, offering their souls in sacrifice and love, so that in the world there may be a mature love, capable of overcoming all errors, capable of transcending all impunity. This is the love that I see in the New Christs.

I kinda went through that lately. I’m trying to emerge from my cocoon but its taking a bit of time and effort. I hope know one thinks i’m ignoring them.

    For those of you completely ignoring the Maui church that was clearly “sliced” by a DEW, this video is worth considering:

      OG,
      When you have what can be considered a seasoned expert in the field of firefighting giving you an opinion, why would you look at videos that can only be considered suspect?

      When the Saint suggests otherwise, I will reconsider.

    Beantownbill, just leave a space between your last character and the semi colon. 🙁

    While the world is shaken and the wars do not seem to end, but rather, expand and multiply, I tell you, children: Do not lose hope. The Time of the Lord has come.

    When the beauty of a blue planet seems to not have meaning, because the hearts of humankind cannot manage to express the beauty that dwells within their own being, and thus destroy not only themselves, but the expression of the Earth, I tell you, children: Do not lose hope. The Time of the Lord has come.

    When the history of the universe seems to repeat itself on Earth, and humanity begins to want to manifest their self-destruction, I tell you, children: Do not lose hope. The Time of the Lord has come.

    When the world is in darkness, be the light of the world.

    When love is lacking on the surface of the Earth, multiply love within your hearts.

    When there is no longer communion with nature, strive day after day so that your lives may be the expression of respect and communion with all the Kingdoms.

    On the table of the world, place that which is lacking so that souls may satisfy their spiritual hunger and thirst, and thus be reborn.

    On the scales of justice, place that which is lacking so that Mercy may weigh more than the assaults of the world, and the merits of your lives always grant souls a new opportunity, even though they do not deserve it.

    Be the balance for a planet in collapse, and day after day, live an inner battle so as to not succumb to the retrograde condition of humanity, to overcome the competition between brothers and sisters, the need for power over others, the need for recognition and vainglory, so that from the inside out you may be capable of transforming the human condition.

    Be yourselves the missing piece on the board of the Divine Plans, so His Project may be fulfilled even though not all souls that committed to this Project are awake.

    The greatest effort, children, is inner, where the true expression of your beings is gestated. It is in the prayer room of the consciousness where you enter into dialogue with God and with yourselves in order to define following the evolutionary plan in each instant.

    The greatest effort, children, will not be in doing more than your human capacity. The greatest effort will be in being what you were thought to be and thus live the divine attributes and virtues that will give you the true strength to continue onward.

    From this will come the possibility of living the impossible; from this will come the Grace to go beyond, from the depths of your beings, from the sincerity of your hearts, from the transformation of your consciousnesses into what God thought of for your lives.

    For this reason, no longer look outward, but rather, inward, and from the inside out, live the Divine Purpose.

    You have My blessing for this.

    Your father and friend,

    The Most Chaste Saint Joseph

    MSNBC (MSDNC) uses FREE government approved airwaves, and yet it is nothing but a 24 hour hit job on Donald J. Trump and the Republican Party for purposes of ELECTION INTERFERENCE. Brian Roberts, its Chairman and CEO, is a slimeball who has been able to get away with these constant attacks for years. It is the world’s biggest political contribution to the Radical Left Democrats who, by the way, are destroying our Country. Our so-called “government” should come down hard on them and make them pay for their illegal political activity. Much more to come, watch!

      Yup.

      I am a believer that if Trump, or his designee, does not retake the White House next year, the country as the Boomers know it is finished.

      The real problem is that the younger generations in their ignorance, do not know any better. They think the governments job is to steal from the Boomers and other well to dos and give them money.

      They do not realize the government is stealing from them also, through their family capital and through scads of attempted new taxes that they will end up paying.

      Young uns, the Liberals that you are supporting are going to rob you blind in the long run.

    Au closed at $2042.60 (bid) and Ag at $25 right on the button.

    If you quickly look at the gold 5- or 10-year graph [click below the graph displayed at]:

    kitco.com/charts/livegoldnewyork.html

    you will see that gold has never successfully stayed above $2000. It has topped $2000 a half dozen times but always gave that ground back. Is this time different? Has $2000 become a new support level? If it breaks its all-time high of $2063.20, will it “number one with a bullet” past $2100?

    [Remember, as its value increases, a $100/oz. jump is less and less in percentage terms. For those holding physical, it’s like taking your $5 chips over to the $10 table at par! $1000 – $2000 is 100%. $2000 – $3000 is 50%. $3000 – $4000 is 33%. $4000 – $5000 is 25%. That’s why you buy and hold Au and Ag. They are real money and when they are done being manipulated, the returns will be astronomical.]

    Breaking The Breaks

    A lot of barbaric behaviour can of course be chalked up to the toxic indoctrination and/or embedded violence of and against, respectively, those on some levels, ignorant, but not necessarily vicious/barbaric, at least not initially.

    You can of course see that subject being broached currently in various media in those tedious or torturous interviews of people pretzelling over the issue of ‘denouncing (or not) the Hamas attack’.

    It’s not that the world is ‘nasty and brutish’ as such and so ‘them’s the breaks’ and ‘ya gotta do what ya gotta do’ but, rather, about getting caught in vicious circles, realizing it, and breaking them as you realize that the world isn’t nearly as vicious after all.

    Too many portray that, however, maybe for some, it’s to justify some sorts of ongoing nastiness and brutishness, often in embedded forms by the entities we call States/State governments.

    If you’re ever interviewed by media, or even spin your own piece, and the topic of denouncing the Oct. 7 2023 Hamas attack on Israel comes up, maybe consider looking at people as separate from States or similar political entities they’re forced and/or ideologically indoctrinated into and to identify with.

    story out of Florida where the “teen” was burglarizing a house and the homeowner arrived home and shot him only for the teen’s cousin to object to the shooting and complain about “how else he supposed to get money fo’ clothes and fo’ skool!?!”

    These low I.Q. retarded and entitled creatures actually think that stealing and robbing others is a valid way to get what they want as opposed to actually getting a job and working for it and that nobody has a right to use force to stop them. You’re supposed to allow it and submit to it or else you beez a raycist!

    “We are Christ’s hands here on earth.” ?

    Thus God’s.

    Genesis 1:26-29

    26Then God said, “Let us make Mankind in our image, in our likeness, so they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and wild animals and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
    27 So God created Mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them: male and female He created them.
    28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number: fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
    29. Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.”

    God put us here for a reason, to be His stewards for His creation. His physical and biological laws created the life on earth through His original Creation of Life and its evolution following His guidance. When Man finally showed up, a Day in God’s mind, He gave us domination and dominion of the living things of Creation.

    We suck at it.

    With the overpopulation of people now threatening the sixth extinction, is God getting ready to drop the boom on Mankind again? For good, or will he give us another chance. Revelation says yes.

    • OG November 29, 2023 at 7:48 pm #

      Revelation tells us that we will go through times worse than ever before and then most people will be damned to Hell and then the few with their names in His Book of Life will enjoy 1,000 years of Jesus’ kingdom.

        I’m pretty sure I’ve explained this stuff more than once.

        I used to feel this same way on the Facebook soapmaking groups, especially when someone would say they couldn’t get the soap out of the molds. I must have explained the procedure for this dozens of times. You also feel this way about teaching kids grammar and English usage in general: “You know, I’ve told you countless times that you use the objective case for the object of a preposition, but you just persist in using the subjective case.”

        I do see how you could be bitter about the current (and historic) state of human affairs. But it could be that it’s all caused by humans, rather than God.

        • JohnAZ November 30, 2023 at 10:36 am #

          IMHO, which means absolutely nothing, God is not the lovey-dovey next to you buddy so many make Him out to be.

          God is in every one of us, He is part of our psyche, but He is non-interfering beyond forming part of our conscience. With reasoning came the sense of right and wrong. Also, the battle between ego, self and superego, bigger than us. Our spiritual side varies in impact in each of us, as all things vary.

          God observes, moderates but does not directly interfere. He gave us our mental gifts that separate us from the rest of life. He wants us to be the stewards of His creation on earth.

          TS, we do suck at it. Knowing that we are overpopulating the resources, we just keep on growing. Our smarts, our technology will only go so far in providing enough resources. Right now, the evil side of humanity is winning, but who knows, maybe when you are to top of the food chain, the only way to control your population is war and destruction.

          Think of what controls the universe and earth as part of it. Physical laws are the signature of God, His expression. Look at what controls Life on earth, DNA. Is God’s “control” of Life on earth tied into DNA? Instinct is the expression of DNA in behavior.

      True. Too many kids in the 3rd World – because of Western medicine (maybe not any more!) and because they’re used to having as many as possible so one or two will survive to take care of them in old age.

      Not enough kids in the West. The best are too busy with careers to have many or even any kids. So the population is trending downwards in terms of IQ – even before the mass influx of the Southern Hemisphere people.

      Can’t find the sweet spot. Just not smart or responsible enough. I mean obviously women (who want kids) should marry and have kids first, then careers. But no! They desperately start looking as they approach sterility and after their look have already begun to fade.

            Dopers had been busted with a kilo of grass in their car, and they were doing time in a Cali correctional institute.

            They received a visit from one grandmotherly lady who brought them a Bible to study during their sad incarceration.

            The Holy Book was naturally inspected very carefully by the guards to ensure it contained no contraband. Then it was passed on to the inmates, who accepted it gratefully.

            Naturally, the pages had been lightly soaked in a water solution of LSD-25 (so they wouldn’t wrinkle and give away the game), so the holy scripture was ingested by the faithful, a page at a time, and the blessings of the Bible helped the boys endure their time.

      Billy was the “bad” brother, always in Jimma’s shadow. But he was probably racially aware, something Jimmy had to abandon to climb the ladder. Too bad Billy hadn’t soured. He would have been a better president than too sweet Jimmy – all other things being equal of course. Maybe he didn’t have the IQ or did he just drink it away?

          Deep Throat was a Gambino Crime Family production. It’s not widely known that all of the pornography from that era, as well as every gay bar & club in the NYC Metro area, was produced and owned by the Genovese & Gambino families.

    TWO PALESTINIANS OPEN FIRE AT JERUSALEM BUS STOP, KILLING 3 ISRAELIS

    Apparently these vaunted freedom fighters didn’t get the ceasefire message so loudly called for on the streets of London, Brooklyn & Harvard. Not surprisingly, the ‘Ceasefire’ is expected to work one way only. It’s interesting that the Freedom Fighters deployed M-4s while resisting colonization by gunning down Istaeli commuters waiting for a bus. Where did they get these fine weapons? Well, hundreds of thousands of them were left behind in Afghanistan, & hundreds of thousands more were shipped to Ukraine. Sophisticated weaponry provided to Ukraine (the most corrupt country in the world) is turning up in the hands of criminals, cartels & terrorists across the globe.

      • Socrates-Detroit November 30, 2023 at 4:14 pm #

        I can’t believe Hamas would do this and jeopardize the cease-fire.

        But apparently, they did kill 3 Israelis–they have taken responsibility!

        Why would they risk the cease-fire?

        Above is the mindset of many people, including many Western “supporters of the Palestinians”. It’s certainly my reflexive reaction.

        But wait!! Since Hamas ratcheted things up on Oct 07 in response to the long-running Israeli abuses of Palestinians, and the massive and massively disproportionate Israeli “counter-response” in bombing Gaza into oblivion, the Israelis have also taken advantage of the “pretext” and “all eyes are watching Gaza” situation to ramp up their abuses and killings of West Bank Palestinians–which were already at a very high pace BEFORE Oct 07.

        Since then, it’s gotten much worse.

        So, viewed that way, well Hamas didn’t launch a rocket attack from Gaza, this was more a very minor retaliation against Israeli West Bank abuses. And the Hamas perpetrators were killed.

        There is not justice for the Palestinians being killed by Israelis in the West Bank every day.

        I don’t know the terms of the truce. But I see nothing that says the Israelis have stopped in the West Bank.

      At first I thought this headline was the beginning of a very bad joke….guess not. We need to bring an end to all of these global wars and focus on the wonders of mankind and attempt to reach the highest potentials humanity has to offer.

      You know who can help us do this? Trump. On his watch he did not instigate any wars. He understands, war is uneconomical and in the long run does not result in any winners to mankind.

      You know what the sickest thing I read just the other day? Biden is trying to continue selling the war in the Ukraine to the American people by showing financial numbers of how each state is profiting from the hostilities. Yeah that is great, I am so glad to hear that Arizona made $3 million off the war in the Ukraine. That is a great reason to keep it going. (*sarc*)

      • Socrates-Detroit November 30, 2023 at 4:24 pm #

        Trump is a wild card.

        In my opinion, the positive: He did not start any NEW wars (unless the US troops occupying part of Syria started in his term–I don’t know. I DO know, regardless of what Mr. Trump SAID he wanted, he did NOT pull those troops out). When Iran shot down a US drone, he said it was unmanned and did not start a war, though Bolton and others wanted to attack Iran.

        The negative: he started giving Ukraine “lethal” military aid. He didn’t leave Syria. He had an Iranian general assassinated. He further encouraged the Israelis by being even more deferential to them than his predecessors in the White House.

        In short, he helped pave the way to where we are today.

        He is much better than the others. But that’s such a low bar, that being “better than the others” is essentially meaningless. My two cents.

        And he’s not candidate Trump of 2016. Trump has a record. It’s RELATIVELY good, but objectively rather lame. He’s eight years older, what 77 next year? And he has his personality issues.

        I don’t know that I’ll support him, but he is the least objectionable of the mental and moral dwarves running.

        In short, the American people are screwed.

    Jared Diamond agrees with you. Whites don’t exist. But somehow Jews do. Can you explain that?” ~ Jarek (upthread)

    Depends what you’re arguing in the Jewish case. What is it? Same argument for your so-called ‘whites’? Then I would say something similar.
    In fact I already mentioned hereon there being so-called ‘black’ Jews, complete with a reference or two. Did you catch that?

    I’ve also already mentioned recently in previous threads, half jokingly, something about Sikhs eventually evolving turban shaped heads and/or different circulation patterns in their heads to keep them cooler, with a keyword perhaps being, ‘eventually’.

    I’ve also mentioned, and in another back-and-forth with you, something along the lines of ‘arbitrary trait selection’ to ‘slice and dice people up in ‘random’ ways’.

    Whatever/However a group, to make a particular ‘genetic/racial’ case for it, there would seem to need to be a sufficient amount of genetic/racial/geographical isolation over a significant amount of time. (The group, as a related aside, should also want to be isolated as an ethical matter.)

    And Jews, Sikhs or your ‘whites’ don’t (yet) appear to qualify.

      New races are possible, yes. Many of the hapas (Asian/White mixes) don’t identify with either race but like each other quite a bit. White fathers are especially problematic to their mixed son. The kids have trouble identifying with them. Just too different.

        No, the Master Sycophant provided his sponsor, the Rockefellers, and their ilk, the very wealthy globalists with not 50, but 60 to 65 years of enhanced parasitic growth. He did not provide “the USA” with 50 years of parasitic growth.

        In the US, real wages have been stagnant for 50 years. Many reasons, but the biggest single reason is America’s globalist imperial foreign policy, pushed be people like Kissinger. Brzezinksi and the “neocons” come to mind.

        This policy has led to debt, inflation, the loss of value and respect for the dollar. The latter has a corrosive effect on respect for people and things in general.

        Thanks to Kissinger, millions of people perished who would not have.

          Both statements are true. Kissinger’s top priority was “the Rockefellers, and their ilk” but his fiat petro-dollar being world reserve currency afforded Americans a lifestyle like no other in the history of mankind [circa 1973-2023] – while they actually made less and less stuff and more and more moving digits around.

          Kissinger set you “useless eaters” up but gave you 50 years of parasitic prosperity by printing money out of nothing (and kicking every Ghadfi butt that ever even thought of trading with other nations but not in your phoney-bologna fiat US Fed notes & T-bills).

          Now the world has had enough of you and your worthless fiat dollars. Now you must pay the piper.

      I was never “swimming in millions.” I had attained $2.5mm net worth by age 50 but then gave half to my useless ex-wife and had most of my half extorted from me by crooked lawyers and random Finkles. That’s hardly anything to brag about, right?

      I was a “computer nerd” that took full advantage of my unique position on Bay Street. I was no “high roller” but I did rub elbows with high rollers.

      ***
      Interesting that you are surprised on my opinions in the sense that, notwithstanding Canadian banks being mainly spotless, I became disillusioned with global banking after Hank Paulson extorted trillions back when a trillion dollars was a lot of money (2008).

      I loved my job from 1992-2008 but after that, I saw myself as nothing more than a cog in the Illuminati’s machine [circa 2008-2014].

      ***
      But as for being a “contrarian” on Bay Street, I always was one (while not directly dealing with institutional clients – just a propellor-head in an office lined with 10 PCs performing various tasks for various products). Harking back to my Econ degree, I was always pro real money (Au & Ag) and always anti fiat US$.

      That is correct – not only was I not a “high roller,” I didn’t even agree with the high rollers.

            “Yeah, I was just an outsider. I just had to deal with them, I didn’t really have much to do with that world.”

            You became disillusioned with Paulson in 2008? The disingenuity is astounding. You’re not that economically stupid. Forget 1913 and the Fed, and all the subsequent pro-fiat gov’t moves since then. Anyone with half a brain could detect the debt game, the loan shenanigans, the mutual funds scams, the stockbroker chicanery, long before 2008.

            BTW, I was far from the only Au & Ag over fiat advocate at BMO Capital Markets circa 1992-2014. We had the top-rated Gold & Silver Senior Producers, Intermediate Producers, Junior Producers and Exploration Companiess analysts in the country (and, arguably, the top on the entire planet). In fact, I annually produced the book that drove our top conference of buy- and sell-side with company IR reps of the industry in the entire continent (usually in Florida in late February).

            So I was sometimes working against the phoney-bologna petro-dollar while simply doing my job on Bay Street – as a matter of course.

            You ridicule me for “servicing” my management and analysts while working in an Equity Research Department (i.e. doing my job)?

            Can you provide an example of a job that does not “service” someone or another? Who would pay you for that? And why ridicule someone for “servicing” his management, colleagues and customers when that was his mandate? That’s why God put us here on this earth, you know, to service others.

            You seem to assume that high rollers on Bay Street are evil incarnate. They are not. They are the intellectual cream of the crop of the entire country, they are brilliant, they work exceptionally long and hard, they are great family-men and -women, they support charity to an extreme and they performed their career under the environment that existed at the time as they lived life large.

            A pile-up of deflection and obfuscation.

            You didn’t at all answer my very reasonable take. How is it possible that someone who “rubs elbows with” (your words in another post) high rollers on Bay Street for over a decade before 2008 was clueless about the pro-fiat scams and bullshit going down by those same people? Did they mysteriously clam up about their scams when you entered the room? Did you not socialize with any of them, on the job or away?

            Of course on the interwebz anyone can say anything they want. That’s why pattern recognition, and dubious claims, are valuable in sussing out someone’s autobiography.

            “Great family men and women.” Another howler. I met my fair share of stockbrokers in the Vancouver scam operation. More wildly speculative there, but the same seedy passions stir among them all. Pro-fiat scum who only care about squeezing $$ out of clueless clients who — themselves greedy — want to also catch the tail of the next “7-bagger”, to use your own lingo re gold.

            That very term, “7-bagger” — on exponential profit — is predicated on the glories of fiat money. Even with gold, any value it may have in the future is as a stable means of trading in a hyperinflationary or deflationary world. It’s not meant as an exponential market-timed profit generator in and of itself.

            You’re a total fraud, a transparent liar and phony. A greedy pro-fiat, pro-exponential financial growth blowhard.

            Go ahead, you always have to have the last word, you bore.

    Muslims are ruining Russian cities too.

    RT

    Church leader calls for national conversation on immigration
    Patriarch Kirill said the current situation with immigration in Russia poses a serious challenge to the country’s culture and traditions

    The head of the Russian Orthodox Church has expressed his concerns over the country’s influx of migrants, saying “the whole Russian world ‘is under threat’” until the country’s immigration policy is revised.

    Patriarch Kirill said ethnic enclaves are emerging and actively developing in the largest cities of Russia, creating breeding grounds for corruption, organized crime and illegal immigration.

    During the World Russian People’s Council, the patriarch said experience had proved that it was impossible to “come to terms with national diasporas and clans, who are ready not only to stand up for [one of their own] in order to save him from fair punishment under the law, but also to take revenge in every possible way on everyone who dares to appeal to law enforcement agencies when reporting a crime.”

    The Patriarch suggested using the experience of other countries facing similar challenges in solving immigration problems. He has been critical of the idea of “embracing the consequences” of unregulated and unlimited arrivals, saying that many simply regard them as the side-effects of “the import of foreign labor” while admitting that it would be difficult for the Russian economy to cope with all the challenges it faces without the additions to the workforce.

    Read more Abortion ‘destroys the future’ – Patriarch Kirill
    He said that the unregulated mass influx of migrants who don’t speak Russian, lack proper understanding of the country’s history and culture, traditions and customs, and are therefore unable and often unwilling to integrate into Russian society end up altering the looks of Russian cities, leading to the deformation of the legal, cultural and linguistic norms of the country.

    The Patriarch has also emphasized that even a Russian passport does not exempt immigrants from the need to respect Russian society and traditions.

    Earlier on Tuesday, special representative of the State Duma on migration and citizenship Konstantin Zatulin said Russia needs migrants, including from Central Asia and the Caucasus. According to him, there are two approaches to migration in the country. “The first viewpoint is to close the borders and immediately ban all migration. The second is to actively attract visitors from other countries as a workforce. The Russian government and business share the second approach,” he emphasized. “Let’s understand: we can’t do without them. There are 72 million workers in Russia today. Of them 3 million are official migrants. More than 2 million jobs are still vacant.”

    Jarek: Easy. Stop letting them in. Then start kicking the young ones out. But, but, but, What about the workers we need!?

    Encourage – and I mean incentives too – young women to marry early and have more than two kids. Surely Patriarch Kiril would help with this. Yes, it is National Socialism but no one has to know. It’ll be our secret.

    Stop listening to Dugin. Start listening to me.

      Muslims might be ruining Russian cities, but at least Russians aren’t making them Mayor of their most important city, Moscow, like the English did in London.

      Or First Minister like in Scotland.

      I have been attempting to follow the flow of events in [heavily-Muslim] Dearborn and other such enclaves (from 11 time zones away) and it seems to be going according to [painfully predictable] plan.

      A moneyed immigrant purchases one not-doing-too-well grocery or other store in a row of half a dozen.

      Immigrants all start to shop there Lots of familiar ethnic items, like Muslim drag, dates, Qur’ans yadda yadda.

      Second moneyed Muslim, observing this success, buys another one of the shops down the way. Unsurprisingly, the non-ethnic neighboring outlets start to see a steady decline in foot traffic, as the legacy local (white) pop feels less than comfortable shopping with so many ooga-boogas streaming by, giving them the stink-eye.

      Soon a third shop is sold to a new arrival and the pressure is on. Before long PRESTO you have a row of Allah-outfits. And on it goes. Or rather, “no-go” zoned.

      “But we are good Americans!”

      Uh-huh.

    Lots of fuss about Kissinger’s death, but a semi-famous Irishman died the same day.

    Shane MacGowan, much younger, and much more talented.

    I’m surprised Jarek hasn’t mentioned it.

      Pats or Stealers, Paula? The Sinn Fein Marxists are on the side of the Stealers.

      Lots of fuss about Kissinger’s death – Paula

      =============

      It’s kind of sad to see what happens to people’s bodies when they become very old. In some relatively recent pictures of Kissinger his head seems to be sinking into his body. Doesn’t have a neck anymore.

      Long life is not all it’s cracked up to be.

        Hey Q,

        Jack Lalanne could bend a quarter with his bare hands into his 90s. Hung around to 96.

        Vigorous, active, alert, well-humored celeb.

        I admire characters like that and hope to keep my power into nine decades.

    Want to know the secret, Vlad? Ask the People for help. With humility. Ask the People to have more children, and then follow thru with a propaganda campaign from all quarters and incentives.

    Humility from the Leader? Asking the People? Wow.

    The Continental soldiers were furious about not getting their wages. Washington as the podium tried to read something and then fumbled for his glasses saying, “Forgive me. I have grown old in your service.” Masterful. They were disarmed. Imagine if he really meant it? That’s the Way right there.

    Americans asked Bush Jr what they could do to help after 9/11. He paused in confusion and then said, Keep shopping. Real inspiring, right?

        “Lynch Cheney!”

        • JimInFlorida2.0 November 30, 2023 at 4:54 pm #

          I think Bill and Hillary have lower number ticket for the Guillotine. Bush and Cheney both will have to wait their turn.

          So many elite necks need stretching or severing. May have to change out the roll in the ticket dispenser soon. And put out a Help Wanted ad for another executioner. Experience preferred but, training available for motivated candidates.

    Alba MIA. Her world is collapsing. Mine is rising. The Rising Sun is sacred in the East. They fear the Samurai.

      Croak … croak …

      Given that you tried your usual schtick already, I just decided not to feed the troll. It seems to be working. Hilarious that you can’t deal with my silence. Poor toadie.

      Every time you mention my name when I haven’t said anything, especially to you, I will hereafter consider increasingly hilarious.

      Croak …
