       After wolfing down a heartburn-inducing Popeye’s Shrimp Tacklebox Combo for supper, Manhattan District attorney Alvin Bragg retires to his four-poster Sleep Number bed beset with anxiety about the grand jury he has convened for fulfilling his campaign promise to stuff Donald Trump into a state prison cell. From the wall-mounted flat-screen across from his bed, the specter of a of giant rabbit emerges, gaunt and grizzled, draped in chains and weighty padlocks.

     “Who are you, spirit?” Bragg asks.

     “I am the ghost of prosecutions past,” it moans. “This night you will be visited by three other spirits: The ghost of what you wish to be, the ghost of what should be, and the ghost of actually what-it-is.”

      Oh, Gawd,” Bragg groans, his esophagus on fire with acidified hot-sauce residue.

      The DA falls back into a febrile sleep, but wakens minutes later. The bedroom of his condo has transformed itself into a sunny street scene. He is riding an open limousine down Broadway through a blizzard of tickertape, the sidewalks filled with cheering citizens. Beside him sits a nubile person of the birthing persuasion, with supernaturally large infant-feeding glands, not unlike a certain star of adult films at the center of his brilliant case against the former president.

     “I am the ghost of what you wish to be,” she says, her breath warm in his ear. “You’re a bigger star now than ever I was in life, and without all the mess.”

     “Yeah? What’s that up ahead?” he asks.

     “The steps of City Hall where you will receive your Nobel Peace Prize and be handed the nomination for governor, your stepping stone to the White House.”

     “We gonna have to change the name of that place,” Bragg grumbles.

     Suddenly a box appears on Bragg’s lap. It contains two McDonald’s Sausage, Egg, and Cheese McGriddles® plus an apple fritter and a caramel macchiato. No sooner do his teeth close on that first delicious bite, when the confetti in the air turns to pixels, which dissolve along with the street scene, and then Bragg is back in his bed. Laughter rings across the big room, but with a demonic dissonance. A large white man with a silvery mane of hair and a nose like an Appalachian dulcimer, draped in black judicial robes, sits up behind a lofty bench, wearing a scowl of privilege.

      “What do you want?” Bragg asks.

      “Your law license, asshole.”

      “Who do you think you are?”

      “I am the spirit of what should be,” the judge-like figure growls.

      “This is a racist ploy!” Bragg barks back. “Plus, you got no standing!”

      More fiendish laughter from the bench, joined suddenly by a chorus of a million other laughers, people of all sizes, genders, and colors, a collage of Manhattan humanity, each one pointing a finger at Bragg, who retreats in terror under his king-size duvet. The laughter dissolves into Bragg’s own blubbering wails of despair.

      The DA wakes a third time, trembling, to the sound of the doorbell, which he tries to ignore, but it keeps on ringing and ringing. Finally, Bragg kicks off the duvet, plods over to the door, and throws it open. A tall, stout, white man with a mystifying platinum hair-doo stands framed within.

      “DoorDash, at your service,” the ghost of actually what-it-is says.

      “Oh, no….” Bragg cries out, as he is handed a paper bag. He opens it and peers in, only to loose a nauseating stench that instantly fills the room. “Hey, this is not the Build Your Crème Brûlée Pancake Combo from the IHOP,” Bragg complains.

      The DoorDash looks at his phone. “It says here you ordered the shit sandwich.”

      Bragg feels like his head will explode. He reaches out to strangle the malevolent specter but wakes up choking his Saatva premium pillow instead. Eventually, he comes back to his senses, but feeling utterly drained from the night’s visitations. He washes the night-sweats away in the shower, dons a fine chalk-strip suit the size of a Coleman six-person tent, and meets his driver waiting at the end of his building’s canopy. In the backseat of his city limo there is a bag with his usual breakfast: two Starbuck’s Double-Smoked Bacon, Cheddar & Egg Sandwiches, a blueberry scone, a glazed donut, and a Starbuck’s Reserve® Hazelnut Bianco Latte. He horses it all down in traffic on the way to the DA’s headquarters on Hogan Place.

      It is Monday morning, of course, roughly a week after the world was expecting him to issue an indictment against former president Donald Trump for writing off payments to a porn star as a campaign expense. But there was much to think about as the week marched along, much to mull over, many options to consider…the future to assess. The office is spookily quiet as Bragg strides in. An attractive blonde of a certain age approaches him warily.

     “Ready to rock and roll, boss?” asks Lisa DelPizzo, Chief of the Trial Division, expecting Bragg to make his historic announcement shortly to the dozens of assembled reporters waiting in the press lobby.

     “Get me a ham sandwich,” he grunts. “And bring it down to the grand jury chamber. We got work to do!”



Attention: Some Notes for Readers about Website Issues.

Re: Google Blacklisted Me

Readers may have noticed my brief experiment with third-party advertisements on this blog. Although I was working with an independent ad management company, the ads ultimately originated from Google’s AdSense program.

Email from Google blacklisting Kunstler.com from the AdSense program. According to Google, Clusterfuck Nation violates their rules by publishing “Unreliable and harmful claims.” The verboten content of my blog includes “claims that are demonstrably false and could significantly undermine participation or trust in an electoral or democratic process,” statements that promote “harmful health claims or relates to a current, major health crisis and contradicts authoritative scientific consensus,” and content that “contradicts authoritative scientific consensus on climate change.

It wasn’t long before Google shut down ads on my site and permanently blacklisted my domain from their program.

According to Google, Clusterfuck Nation violates their AdSense rules by publishing what they deem to be “Unreliable and harmful claims.”

The good news is the DOJ is suing Google’s ass with an anti trust suit over its ad market monopoly and is calling for a corporate breakup. We’ll see if Google follows the Get-Woke-Go-Broke trend.

    I was born in 1954 so I was not around for what went down in the Korean War, but from what my Dad told me, it was 3 years of bravado followed by a bullshit result. I grew up waiting to be sucked into the 10 years of bravado of the Vietnam War, which culminated with another bullshit ending (I was blessed to be able to avoid that while still fulfilling my responsibilities). America went on to propagate many more bravado wars, all ending in bullshit, capped off nicely by the Afghanistan debacle in which our leaders were stupid enough to repeat lethal errors made by both the British and the Russians. Now our brain-dead leadership engages us in another bravado nightmare replicating lethal mistakes made by both the French and the Germans that will clearly end in bullshit regardless of whether or not it culminates in WWIII.

    On the political/leadership front during that same lifetime I have witnessed a slow, methodical degradation in those who rule us, all based in bravado, and all headed towards bullshit endings. “Wait till the midterms”, “Wait till the house changes hands”, wait till this, wait till that, wait till the fucking cows come home, all ending in bullshit, sorry. Words on paper, words in media, words spoken by clowns to gatherings of clowns, all bravado, all resulting in the same bullshit ending.

    “Words are for lovers, Merlin. I need a sword!” Sorry Uther Pendragon, your sword did not save you and it shall not save us and neither will words. In the end it shall only be bullshit. Hope? You all know where my hope lies, and until He returns, we are going to have to learn to live on a steady diet of bullshit.

    This one is for you Susan, my dear friend. You have brightened my life greatly, thank you.

      Just saw a video on Fox of the American trucks, tanks and weapons left behind by the Biden FU in Afghanistan. Broadcast by the Taliban, it shows acres and acres of equipment. The Taliban does not need most of it, so I figure it is a sales ad.

      Get your weapons here cheap!!

      BRICS++ is salivating.

      • Anon1970 March 27, 2023 at 10:44 am #

        What is the likelihood of Russia doing a swap with the Taliban? Russian oil for American trucks, tanks and weapons.

        • BackRowHeckler March 27, 2023 at 11:56 am #

          Anon I think Russia already possesses plenty of American weaponry, captured from the Ukrainians on the battlefield, or bought outright from Ukrainian army officers and politicians looking to capitalize on the situation & make a quick buck or two.

          • Paula D March 27, 2023 at 12:24 pm #

            According to Brian Berletic Russian equipment is better than US equipment anyway.

          Unfortunately, NATO/U.S. can cleanup the Russian armed forces and may well do just that in 2024 about 5 months before the general election.

            Where would NATO and the US get the ammunition from, workingclasshero? NATO is sending its last 1,000,000 rounds to Ukraine as this very moment for the “final offensive” double entendre intended.

            Take a look at the numbers of munitions shipped. Take a look at what Russia is churning out. No comparison.

        @ sgotho:

        I agree. Quite a piece of writing! It’s not every day that I LOL over some brilliant figure of speech.

        The sense of humor diminishes with age, due to having “heard ’em all” before; it’s all so stale. But this piece is both funny and original.

      • AmbientLght2theWorld March 29, 2023 at 11:47 am #

        I agree with Shotho, brilliant, especially how you knew what he ate for breakfast lunch and dinner!

        But really we have to laugh at the pathetic attempts of these blowhards to get their face in the spotlight of the corrupt media to promote themselves at all cost.

        This would have been a small blip of a column 50 years ago and people would have called it out for what it is… a sham.

      • Wizard of the Saddle March 30, 2023 at 10:09 am #

        Superb satire. This kind of writing is what has kept me coming back to CFN for over 15 years and it’s why I own many of our host’s excellent books. IMHO Jim is vastly underappreciated but it is not his fault – it is because 99% of the general population is too dense, low IQ and low-information to comprehend, much less savor, these tasty morsels that he keeps serving up weekly.

        One suspects that Mr. Kunstler will be better recognized as a sage of our age about a century or so after we are all gone from this world. Such has it always been with genius…

    • Ron Anselmo March 27, 2023 at 10:24 am #

      Morning Walter – your repetition of words, words, words, got me thinking.

      It’s what we teach our little ones, to diffuse them – “Use your words” – when they have some tantrum of disagreement. Children are smart – instinctive – they realize that breaking a little furniture gets a lot more results that talking.

      Another good lesson we can learn from our little ones. A day or two before my oldest son was born, some exceedingly wise man told me, “Children come into our lives, not so they can become more like us, but so we can become more like them.” Amen.

      • Ron Anselmo March 27, 2023 at 10:41 am #

        *than*

      • Walter B March 27, 2023 at 10:47 am #

        Yes, children know it and lawyers know it too. No words alone can ever build anything, solve any physical problem, or stop any calamity from happening, but the right words can relieve you of your freedom, or your assets. After taming the American West with the six-shooter, the lawyers moved in to protect the gains and control the crowds. Now they are bringing it all down upon our heads.

        Very satisfying to see your wisdom regarding our children. They are the best thing we can do as human beings, if we understand that and do right by them. Give’ em a hug for me.

        • bill7424 March 27, 2023 at 5:58 pm #

          Every child that comes into the world deserves a loving family. They are our Greatest Natural Resource, our Future. And it’s so sad to see how some of them are being groomed and indocrinated into a radical Liberal environment of fake everything.

      • SW March 27, 2023 at 10:59 am #

        But you forget, Walter, the cows can’t come home b/c they’re filling the air with toxic methane that will kill us all. Especially if you’ve driven to the grocery store in a nonelectric car and cooked it on a gas stove.

        But first, Trump must go and he’s proving tenacious of life. I’ve noticed even people with TDS aren’t fully rabid about him paying off a professional sex worker to not squeal to his wife . Maybe with banks wobbly and groceries becoming a luxury, they finally realize there are more important issues in the world.

        Mr. Kuntsler– a quote from GK Chesterton that reminded me of your writing —

        “Of a sane man there is only one safe definition. He is the man who can have tragedy in his heart and comedy in his head.”

        • Jarek March 27, 2023 at 1:01 pm #

          No one was better than GK at the bon mots.

          Could one exist without the other? Comedy stems from tragedy and tragedy from us being ass clowns. And that is tragic, yet funny.

          • SW March 27, 2023 at 1:14 pm #

            Jarek — CS Lewis said Chesterton was the sanest man he’d ever met. And he was wise in the most down to earth way while being funny but honest. One of his close friends was Shaw who he disagreed with politically and thought his ideas about human beings far off the mark.

            In The Everlasting Man he takes aim at the theory of evolution and makes a compelling case why it doesn’t make sense. We’re so used to taking it as settled scientific fact, we forget some of the brightest men found it unconvincing.

          • Jarek March 27, 2023 at 9:21 pm #

            As one American Indians said of the chimpanzee: He’s a relation, not an ancestor.

            A beautiful Indian short prayer of three words: All my relations! emphasizes the interconnected web of life. But it’s not flatland – there are still the heavens and the underworld. Animals are messengers of these other realms, sometimes. Other times they’re other beings, deserving of respect and an apology when he kill and eat them.

        Ron,

        There is a general lack of impulse control (or managing one’s temper) in public these days, by kids and adults alike. I pay attention when I see cellphone video or security footage of restaurant brawls, arguments on planes that turn into violent encounters for airline personnel, etc. Engaging with people you do not know is just not worth it. The case that most sticks in my memory was about a guy who shot (and killed) a restaurant worker for giving his mom a cold cheeseburger. He’s going to spend the rest of his life in prison over a cold cheeseburger. When people don’t respect their own lives, they sure as hell won’t respect anyone else’s.

        • Beryl of Oyl March 27, 2023 at 11:17 am #

          Heavy weed use can trigger violence just as much as other drugs we more typically associate aggressive behavior with can.

          • C.O.Jones March 27, 2023 at 11:35 am #

            I dunno, Beryl. Maybe if they are fighting over proceeds.

            For the most part, if 4 guys get drunk they start a fight. If 4 guys get stoned they start a band.

            Weed is the tip of the spear.

        • Rowdypiglet March 27, 2023 at 12:35 pm #

          Mrs_saj, I suspect they have impulse control. They simply see no point in using it, since they can indulge themselves in any way they wish with (usually) no consequences. This is a passage that stuck with me through the years from a book by Theodore Dalrymple, a psychiatrist who worked in the prison system in Britain. It’s part of a conversation with a woman who was repeatedly beaten by her boyfriend but claimed he couldn’t help it:

          “ ‘Well, when he does it he changes completely; he becomes another person; his eyes stare; it’s like he has a fit. I really think he can’t help it. He’s got no control over it.”
          ‘Would he do it in front of me, here, now, in this room?’
          ‘No, of course not.’
          ‘Then he can help it, can’t he?’
          The woman’s desire to avoid a painful dilemma – love him and be beaten, or leave him and miss him – prevented her from asking the very obvious question as to why the ‘fits’ happened only in the privacy of their flat.”

          The “fits” we see people indulging in similarly occur only when they know there are no consequences. I’ve worked with children and teens who were taken into custody for their supposed lack of impulse control, whose misbehavior was bad enough to endanger others. Every single one of them could control themselves perfectly provided the incentive was sufficiently strong in terms of a treat or a punishment.

          In the case of people who are acting out in public now, I guarantee that almost all of them can summon up impulse control if they think it will benefit them. They weigh the reward against the (rare) consequences and then give themselves permission to go berserk if they see no reason not to.

          • SW March 27, 2023 at 1:18 pm #

            Rowdy — I’ve known plenty of parents (and I’ll bet you have too) who allow their kids to behave any way they want to in public with no thought to teach them consideration for others. Now they’re adults with zero impulse control and no interest in learning any. Antifa is a perfect example — still throwing fits in public and no consequences.

          • mrs_saj March 27, 2023 at 7:14 pm #

            Rowdy,

            I have that book! It’s called Life at the Bottom. It’s a real eye opener about poor people who have the answer about why their life sucks, but won’t do anything about it. I’ve read it a few times.

            You may be right. But the guy who killed the McDonalds worker over a cold cheeseburger is definitely experiencing the consequences of his actions. Perhaps he didn’t realize he would be charged?

          • Anthea March 28, 2023 at 12:36 am #

            @ mrs_saj:

            You can read “Life at the Bottom” online for free, if you do a search for it.

          • mrs_saj March 28, 2023 at 1:29 pm #

            Anthea,

            That is great info for anyone reading our thread. I did not know it was available online for free. I bought the paperback long ago (I’m old school with books; kindle is fine for fiction, but non-fiction requires an actual in your hand book).

            I highly recommend Life at the Bottom to anyone whose interested in the lies we tell ourselves and the consequences from it. Its not exactly uplifting, but it’s good.

            Mrs_saj, I have most of Dalrymple’s books. He’s one of the very few who can make me laugh at the insanity. Fortunately, they’re physical books so they can’t be expurgated by a “sensitivity reader” and are residing safely on my bookshelves, at least until the book burning begins.

            As for the McDonald’s guy, I think if you just let yourself give in to every impulse for long enough without anyone stopping you, you think no one ever will. But even now someone is occasionally actually charged and sentenced. I don’t think it’s a trend.

          • mrs_saj March 28, 2023 at 1:38 pm #

            Rowdy,

            Janos – if you haven’t seen it, check out the movie Barfly with Mickey Rourke and Faye Dunaway. Dark & depressing, but an interesting study in (destructive) human behavior – but a lot of wisdom in it just the same.

        • Ron Anselmo March 28, 2023 at 6:54 pm #

          Mrs. – very good points as usual – your comments never disappoint. Actually, more appreciated than you may realize.

          Could not agree with you more on the lack of impulse control, and disrespecting others. Having seen the videos you mention, they are perfect promotional material for concealed carry, which I always do.

          Not much need where I live, we’re not subject to the animals and the vagrants and the jungle mentality of the big cities, but you can’t ignore the risk of an occasional outlier even in the most serene of settings.

          In mentioning “tantrums of disagreement”, I just meant, a little aggression, sometimes gets more results than simple words – the key is “controlled” aggression, not the lack of impulse control you so deftly point out.

          In diffusing our children too much, we may inadvertently be eliminating all aggression – which is a disservice to our children. Heaven knows, they need to compete – for everything – mates, careers, jobs, income, material possessions, lastly, resources.

          Especially in the multipolar world that’s coming. IMHO, I see that as a plus – nothing wrong with competing – being competitors. Nothing wrong with having outperforming as a goal – it’s controlled aggression.

          Now on the words of “breaking furniture”, they do actually carry some weight, and have many times for me personally. Latest case in point:

          My wife overpaid a medical bill by $1400. After repeatedly calling the company’s “Billing Department” in some call center in India, I called their physical office 60 miles away and spoke to the office manager.

          I politely told her that I would be at their office in one week to pick up a $1400 check and if it wasn’t there, I’d “start breaking furniture” until Accounts Payable came thru.

          Don’t you know, I had a had a check in my mailbox 4 days later – saved me an hour-long drive each way. I didn’t threaten anyone, but there’s probably some misdemeanor charge for threatening vandalism, but honestly, I don’t give AF anymore. Every day we’re subject to some kind of run-around.

          A final thought – I don’t have much sympathy for the guy who will be doing life over a cold cheeseburger, but my heart breaks for the restaurant worker who lost his or her life over a cold cheeseburger. They are animals. Sorry, but the rabid ones need to be put down.

          • mrs_saj March 29, 2023 at 1:39 am #

            Thanks Ron Anselmo!

            It is also amazing to me that many of these people know they are on camera or being filmed ad hoc by people with their cell phones and they still do what they do.

            In some cases, I really do think it is purely poor impulse control. In other cases, as some folks mentioned here, it is a complete disconnect with consequences; their parents never imposed consequences and neither did the school system or even the court system.

            I understand your point about controlled aggression and wanting kids to understand there’s a time and place for all things. Certainly sports is one such time and place and can offer kids a great metaphor for life. Competition can teach kids about discipline, courage, and fair play. Other examples of this (off the field) might be the ability to say “no”, standing up to a bully, or having good personal boundaries.

            Your “breaking furniture” story made me laugh. Your wife must have been furious with the medical billing department. JHK has written at length, about the medical rackets as well as the sheer fiction of the bills. I think it was after he had his hip replaced and was drowning in paperwork.

            It reminded me of when my husband (who had 2 mRNA shots and was not thrilled with the side effects) was told at work that the company (50 employees) was going to require vaxxination for everyone. He didn’t even flinch. His answer? “Let me know what date you’re putting on that memo. I want to use the same date on my letter of resignation.” And it worked, no mandates!

            I was so proud and I’ll bet your wife feels the same way about your furniture breaking gambit.

          • Ron Anselmo March 30, 2023 at 10:37 pm #

            Mrs. – Thanks for the kind words, they are appreciated, but my gambit was completely self-serving – simply trying to recover $1400 due – not even comparable to your husband.

            You should be exceedingly proud of your husband as I am, his actions were self-sacrificing, Christ-like, in that he was willing to suffer – a loss of income & employment – in the defense of his co-workers.

            After being vaccinated himself, he had no dog in the fight – simply looking out for the free choice of others – a noble gesture not seen much anymore. The world needs more men like the Mr.

            Hopefully you all have a lot of children – if the girls grow up with the Mrs. as a role model & the boys grow up with the Mr. as a role model – the world will be a better place.

      When I put the box it came in out with the trash, instead of flattening it and putting it in the container I left it on top, so my Trump-hating neighbors across the street could see it.

    • Walter B March 27, 2023 at 9:47 am #

      Yes, very nice, Jim is a great author of entertaining fiction. Unfortunately, out here in the real world the bad guys are not subject to such apparitions.

      I am not a Doom & Gloomer or a Buzzkill people, sorry but I just know that the decay and degradation are simply not going to be stopped or reversed “by any power that we here possess, Gimli, Son of Gloin”, and here is why.

      I listen to Tony Perkins of FRC radio on the way to work on Sunday mornings on his show “Weekend Washington Watch”. He interviews senators, congressmen, and all sorts of other political types on current issues. On Sunday morning he interviewed a congressman and was very pleased with the congressional committee investigating the Weaponization of the Justice Department. After listening to this fellow, Tony asked how the committee was planning on achieving reformation of the failure to enforce the law on the owner’s buddies while bastardizing the law to destroy the political enemies of their rulers. “Well, we do control the purse strings and can defund the offending agencies maybe in August or September, although it would have to pass the senate and the executive branch as well.”

      Big fricken whoop! That’s it? That all you got? They didn’t end on a very hopeful note and after suggesting a physically impossible sexual act for both of them, I shut the radio off in disgust. In a nation that has replaced God with money, money becomes god and no mere human can battle even a false god successfully. The Goons with Uzi’s and sunglasses serve the money, and they with the most money are their man-gods for whom they will do any and all things they are commanded to do. The congress doesn’t control the money, hell, they can’t even account for where half of it goes or comes from in the first place. Ask Dr. Mark Skidmore or Catherine Austin-Fitts, they’ll enlighten you.

      Our system is a massive Monopoly game and the owners of Boardwalk, Park Place and right about now, ALL of the valuable properties, utilities, and businesses, THEY are the real owners. THEY are the “winners” of this damned dirty game, and WE are the losers.

      At least in this plane of existence.

        The parable that a rich man and the eye of a needle applies to countries too. America has given its soul to the devil. And to its incarnation, the Liberal progressive Mob.

        Again, God has deserted this country and the world knows it.

        • FGB3 March 27, 2023 at 3:17 pm #

          “God has deserted this country”.

          Well he/she/it deserted Israel numerous times even though they were his “chosen people”. America has been compared with ancient Israel many times. With good reason.

          I have children and now grand-children. I watch them grow up. I see the same sort of trial and error, lessons learned and not learned in both nations.

          I cannot help but wonder sometimes how they were so lucky as to be born in our family. They are like chosen people too, when I consider the sort of “families” that many children grow up in in this time of lessened morals.

        The Fed (at least as far as I can tell) is what’s really running the show but they are a private bank that’s presented to us as a public institution. Why are they setting interest rates, printing digital money (to flood the banks with quantitative easing) and deciding who gets bailed out? Ron Paul has been trying for decades to expose them and it was by his efforts they were audited after 2008. At that time, according to Bloomberg News, the bailout to taxpayers was 27 TRILLION dollars. But it was yanked from the news quickly.

        • Walter B March 27, 2023 at 12:30 pm #

          Because they can SW. That was why counterfeiting any currency used for the exchange of goods and services was so important to prevent. Any entity that could simply print up currency without backing it with anything of true value could eventually own everything and leave nothing left for anybody else.

          That is the point we are almost at now, and when enough of the general public realizes that our exchange system no longer has any real value, why that is when it all craps out.

          • cowbell81 March 27, 2023 at 12:44 pm #

            People need to study the history of Depression Scrip. Back in the 1930s all kinds of businesses and local areas issued their own currency, much like the most recent Ithica Hours and a few others.

            People on the local level should band together to issue their own currency and get rid of the US Dollar. This currency can only be used locally, or if someone else brings in a currency from several hundred miles away it is accepted but discounted accordingly. This is what many businesses did in the 1860s when regional banks printed their own currency prior to the Fed.

            Another case in point is Civil War tokens. As a result of coin shortages, all kinds of merchants issued cent sized tokens that were used for commerce. This had a double bonus, since it was free advertising for the business on the token.

    Trump’s enemies still don’t understand the physics of Judo. They think that indicting him will make him weaker.

    The Golden Golem of Greatness has undoubtedly rehearsed the scene in his imagination: head held high, as he deigns to permit law enforcement officers to put handcuffs around his wrists and to bend his head while putting him in the back seat of a police car.

    The corporate media would then replay the video clip ad infinitum, each time adding thousands of swing votes to Trump’s victory in the next presidential election.

    • mrs_saj March 27, 2023 at 11:30 am #

      Zoltar,

      I never attributed it to Judo, but maybe that’s it. But whatever the cause, the left does not understand Trump. I’m not sure I understand him and I voted for him twice. He does not have the capability to be embarrassed. And he absolutely thrives on insults, lawsuits, bad press and the like. And he was this way long before social media was invented and everyone decided they’d like to try their hand at being famous. He must have cut his teeth dealing with organized crime while building is real estate holdings. No wonder Alvin doesn’t scare him.

      Deepening the division. One of the intended effects. I suspect they are also planning to find a charge to pin on Trump to make him ineligible to run for President. Not necessarily to keep him out of office, but to incite his followers to some act of stupidity to pave the way for a crackdown.

    We have to remember that in the midst of the psychos in charge destroying western civ, they also are ridiculous creatures to be pointed and laughed at. I mean, what else do we have? Also, they hate it so that makes it a bonus.

      He is a master of words and that is what we need. As Arundhati Roy said:

      “Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe.

      The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling – their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability.

      Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them.

      Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”

      I was so disappointed years ago when I first saw that McDonalds were everywhere, esp. France and Ireland, for some reason. I had in my mind imagined that Europe was above fast food.

      • Blackbird March 27, 2023 at 12:52 pm #

        According to Thomas Friedman, McDonalds will usher in the era of World Peace, since countries that host the Golden Arches don’t fight with each other. Well, until the demolition of Yugoslavia anyway…

      • GreenAlba March 27, 2023 at 1:46 pm #

        My sister-in-law in Norwich used to host European school kids doing organised activities, English classes and whatnot, back when her own kids were young. She went to a lot of trouble cooking nice meals for a French boy they had and he just wanted to go to ‘Macdo’ with his friends. That was back in the early 90s.

      • BackRowHeckler March 27, 2023 at 2:29 pm #

        From my own observation, McDonalds may be on shaky ground and could go the way of Howard Johnsons. For example, this morning I dropped my wife at the Dr. Office for a physical & walked over to the McDonalds next door. This was in the middle of breakfast time & the place was dead.

            In any discussion of the ruinous habit of gulping down junk food, there is one sure-fire way to shut down smart alecks who come back with “Hey, I like it! It tastes great and it’s cheap. Never did me any harm”.

          One of our McDonald’s went out of business, and for a while they tried to sell the location as “Great location for a restaurant’.

          Really? If McDonald’s can’t make it, who could? They seemed to have given up, and the place was razed.

          Same with the Denny’s. I was more surprised when they shut it down and turned it into a vacant lot.

          Poverty abounds in my town.

          • Disaffected March 27, 2023 at 6:45 pm #

            Our McDonald’s abandoned their original location and built a brand spankin’ new drive thru facility a block away, complete with kiosk ordering if you happen to go inside. Not many do. But I think they had local tax incentives for all this. Then the Starbuck’s abandoned their downtown store and converted the old MickyD’s to a Starbuck’s drive thru only, so now the impatient chuckleheads can get their coffee to go and slop it all over their expensive cars. They have another store in the Smith’s shopping center, so it probably won’t be long before that one goes belly up as well. Smith’s was really pushing online ordering and deliveries during Covid, but I don’t think it caught on. Don’t see the order pickers in the store much anymore. Maybe next pandemic.

    Dickens is appropriate, because as noted last time, the French are going all Tale of Two Cities on their government.

    When the MSM bothers to cover it at all, they claim it’s about adding a lousy two years to retirement age, but that’s merely the straw that broke the came’s back.

        Cowbell,

        I know what you mean by “phony”, but there was nothing phony about Jan 6. That was a special operation, specifically designed to get conservatives into a federal building and then use the DOJ to give a public lesson on what happens to dissenters.

        Thank God that the footage has mostly been released and is being reviewed. Just like TPTB sat on Hunter’s laptop, the Jan 6 footage was ignored because it showed the truth.

        • C.O.Jones March 27, 2023 at 11:56 am #

          Agreed mrs_saj – and orchestrated by the biggest deep state actor of them all. The one who vows to “obliterate the deep state.” The one who appoints one deep state criminal after another to his administration. The one who protected the deep state by sitting on Huma Abedin’s video with Hillary. The one who protected the deep state by sitting on the JFK files after promising to release them. The one who sat on the 911 information to protect his personal lawyer Julie Rudiani. Yes, the guy who did a video, available on youtube, that included him squeezing the fake breast of deep state Julie Rudiani when the latter was dressed in drag. Yes, the guy who perpetuated the deep state distraction by promising to travel to NYC to be arrested for a misdemeanor for which the statute of limitations had expired. If he was not deep state, he would have sat in Florida and said “come and get me.” Invite and incite protests to implicate his “supporters” and then leave them all in jail. Brilliant deep state strategy, Deep State Donny.

          • Beryl of Oyl March 27, 2023 at 12:12 pm #

            That drag video was for an organization of NYC journalists that put on a musical and political roast every year.

            They go for stuff like that in NY. Rudy wasn’t his attorney at the time, he was the mayor.

            Doesn’t it seem odd that millions of people would get out and riot because the judiciary might be overhauled?

            Like in Hong Kong, when we were told that citizens were outraged that a murderer might be extradited, so they rioted for 6 months, even after the government backed down.

            Same in Georgia, where we were told that citizens were outraged that foreign agents spending money to influence their society must be labeled as such. They kept rioting after the law was dropped, also.

            These are not believable scenarios.

    Trump doesn’t understand that committing a crime is what matters. When he plays his Trump card, thinking no prosecutor would dare to indict THE GREAT TRUMP, he’s deluding himself. As for his fanboys, comments here prove the poor saps just follow along. Trump didn’t do anything for those of us who work for a living The only Americans who benefitted from his four years in office were the RICH. Oh, and his crony boys, too, of course. All the criminal has to do is dog whistle and pull his weenie and his fanboys fall into his trap and offer to give him a hand job. And for free! Did any of you fanboys notice that he called Georgia’s Attorney General and suborned electoral fraud? Did any of you notice that he lost the 2020 election and wasn’t man enough to admit it? Instead, lies, lies, and lies. Come on, guys. And you, Jim. You’re all smarter than that. Aren’t you?

        This story at ZeroHedge keeps reiterating that it is a FEMALE shooter. E.g.,
        “A 28-year-old woman carried out a mass shooting at a private Christian school in Nashville on Monday, resulting in the deaths of at least three children and three staff members. The Tennessean reported that police killed the female shooter.” They repeat the phrase “female shooter.” It sounds a bit odd . . .

        Ha ha.

      • C.O.Jones March 27, 2023 at 3:16 pm #

        Nawww, not me @Farmer McGregor. I’m not looking to pick a fight but when I heard Trump say he was going to obliterate the deep state, I yelled at the video screen so loud it scared my dog! “Like the last time? C’mon Donny – you had your chance!”

        I watched in amazement as Ruby Freeman and her daughter wheeled out suitcases full of unfolded ballots and repeatedly ran them thru the counting machines on election night 2020. The video was there for a long time for all to see. At one point, her daughter looks right at a camera and says “We’re going to jail!” They were “election workers” in Fulton County, GA – pretty sure they were part of Stacy Abrams’s crew.

        The governor of Georgia took a $7,000,000 payment thru an account set up by his wife. That account existed for only a few days – set up, accepted payment and closed the account. The payment was not from Dominion, it was from China.

        Sidney Powelll and Julie Rudiani presented this and stacks of other evidence of election fraud and were turned away because they had “no standing.” No court in the land would hear them.

        Any fool with the money Trump claims to have would have recorded a thoughtful, methodical video of evidence of election fraud and presented it to the American people on the web and on network TV but not deep state Donny. Instead, he pissed off to Florida and muttered “we’ll get ’em next time.” “Wait until the mid-terms.” ” I willl obliterate the deep state!”

        I voted for this guy twice but I’m not getting played again.

        Wasn’t it a tip-off, Farmer McGregor, when Trump called for “Protest, protest, protest!” at his pending arrest for a misdemeanor for which the statute of limitations had long expired? What was his purpose in calling for massive protests, if not to expose those opposed to the deep state so they could receive treatment similar to that of the J6 crew?

        Again, I don’t want to pick a fight but how do you explain one deep state appointment after another during his administration? Sessions, Tillerson, Mattis, Mnuchin, Bolton, Scaramucci, Haley – all accidents? If Trump had brought Hunter Biden’s laptop to light during his second impeachment – Fey Wray was sitting on it – this whole damn Ukraine fiasco could have been avoided. Why didn’t he? For the same reason he sat on all the other evidence I mentioned in my previous post.

        It’s not TDS. It’s just refusing to get played again. He stands next to Limpsey Graham and says he’s going to obliterate the deep state. Really? I don’t believe him.

        Peace.

          Pretty easy. A DC newbie who trusted Republican party insiders and thought he could cut deals with the ones he knew for certain were not entirely trustworthy.

          There was a great piece online from the guy who was supposed to be in Fauci’s role. Said Trump personally called him to DC to look into the Covid nonsense right at the start of the theater. He made the trip and spent weeks in a hotel while people from Trump’s team told him to be patient. Turns out there were a few holdovers there who were forming the pandemic team withholding all kinds of info. from Trump, as well as blocking some of his picks for various roles.

          But you know it all!

          • C.O.Jones March 27, 2023 at 8:05 pm #

            @ Night Owl – respectfully, No I do not know it all. I voted for Trump because I wanted what is best for the country and for the world.

            I have read in several places that Ivanka was making appointments w/ help from her husband, kind of a “daddy, I want to be president too!” deal. That might explain the parade of deep state swamp rats “appointed” by Trump. Daddy’s little girl gets her way. She is on record as saying she won’t be involved if her dad gets re-elected, which leads us to the question of who will? Don Jr? Eric Trump?

            How am I supposed to believe him when he says next time will be different? Oh, he’s going to make his own appointments and his own decisions and not repeat the same mistakes? Face it, he might mean well but he’s a lousy politician. Pelosi and Schumer kicked his behind.

            One last point: To allow the prosecution of Bill Gates, Anthony Fauci, Deborah Birx, Francis Collins and the pharma executives responsible for the death shots would be tantamount to admitting Trump screwed up. Trump’s ego will never let that happen. These people should be put on the wall and their assets distributed to families of people who died as a result of the shots. Trump still claims warp speed was his idea and that the shots saved “hundreds of millions of lives.” I think president Robert F Kennedy Jr. would allow the prosecution and punishment of these criminals against humanity. Maybe I’m wrong but I would vote for him on that fact alone. Trump will protect those criminals much the same as he did Hillary. I’m done with this guy.

          • Night Owl March 28, 2023 at 3:24 am #

            Fair enough. I am simply pointing out that there is a very logical explanation for what you asked, and that no one offering that sort of criticism really knows what happened.

            I’d vote for a better alternative myself, but I don’t see any, and I don’t see anyone (Americans) out there protesting what has been done to them over the past 6 years or so.

            So, what exactly is going to change one might ask?

          Thanks C.O.J.
          ‘Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me’.

          I voted for DJT twice. Once to oppose the Witch. Twice because there were no other choices, and I kinda thought “just maybe…” he was real, despite evidences to the contrary.

          But when he came out big on promoting the m-RNA bioweapons, EVEN AFTER the evidence was pouring in that they were B-A-D, well that was the Last Straw for me.

          But before that I had read Patrick Byrne’s exposé on his meeting with Trump (accompanied by Sidney Powell and Mike Flynn), and that sure did seem really, really odd. They presented him with a simple, legal, fool-proof way to check the election for fraud, and in private he said he wanted to do it; but then when his Chief of Staff got wind of the ongoing meeting, and started in on the reasons why not to do it, Trump did nothing.

          Trump’s persona is to act tough and scowl, etc. but he’s really just a big pussy.

        The False Cause Fallacy: Correlation Does Not Equal Causation!.

        When we see that two things happen together, we may assume one causes the other. Sometimes that is thinking right, not always.

        Rocks waves crash against presidents are not. Presidents are corks that bob on waves. Not change-makers. Up and down they go. If the wind blows presidents go that way too.

        The momentum of previous administrations has more to do with how things are when a president begins to serve than actions they take while in office. Actions they take don’t produce results right away.

        Changing subject, interesting lead in today. But the story end is missing. At the end in a dream Alvin Bragg attends his own funeral. At the end of his dream Alan looks at the grass around his unkempt grave.

        Yes, and he promised Blacks the Platinum Plan – that would have outdone Johnson’s Great Society. He also let thousands of Black cut throats of out of prison – anything to help buy the Black vote.

        As for us, he never mentioned us after he won. As for the illegals, halfway thru his term he said he wanted all these people here because “the economy is so good.”!

        Hell yeah I’m voting for him again! The Saint is a Neo-Con plant. The orange louse remains the best option. He doesn’t hate real Americans, he just doesn’t think we matter in any special way.

      @AID666, If you did in fact work for a living, as you claim, you’d be aware that Trump did quite a few things that benefit those of us who work. As I’ve said before, removing the penalty for not purchasing expensive and useless health “insurance” may be at the top of the list.

      You should reconsider how you define “fanboys”. People who perceive the whole picture don’t fit your definition. Speaking only for myself, Trump did things that benefit me personally, as well as some things I wouldn’t support. And then there were things that he simply left undone. It’s childish and unrealistic to think that any president or official is going to do my bidding, and mine alone, while in office. I’m not going to hold my breath and have a tantrum because he didn’t do everything I wanted.

      On the whole, and keeping in mind his personal failings and what he was up against, I give him a better than decent grade. That hardly qualifies as being a fanboy, nor do I know of anyone else here who would qualify as one.

        Oz disappeared from the blog one day a few years ago and never returned. I think he may have had a death in the family, possibly his wife. Somebody from up his way said something like that… or so I vaguely seem to remember.

        • Jarek March 28, 2023 at 12:08 pm #

          BRH said his wife was sick and I assume she died. Men often take the death of their spouse very badly, having lost touch with their friends and family in a way most women do not. And of course they love women more deeply than most women love men.

    “‘The true administration of justice is the firmest pillar of good government’ — Inscription on the pediment of the Manhattan Criminal Court.”

    OK, that is a true-enough statement. But this isn’t written from the correct perspective. This is just making a sympathy-seeking blanket statement that sounds good at full-arms-length but without committment. We the People would all be much better served if the inscription – on ALL Courts, everywhere — went something like this:

    ‘We of the (fill in the blank) Court hereby pledge ourselves that at every moment and in every circumstance we shall execute and administer true and honest Justice that we will without fail apply equally without exception or favor to all levels and all stations and every person in Our Nation.’

    And if they have to order more concrete and stone cutters to make all those words fit, so be it.

    And come to think of it, those words should also be inscribed over the doorframe of every Popeye’s Chicken, McDonalds, White Castle… hell, let’s just make it every food vendor in America with their amended pledge to offer nothing but nutritious, healthful, tasty, and reasonably-priced offerings with full 24-hour convenience of access.

            At the moment, I don’t think the Congo makes much out of its mineral wealth at all. It’s that ‘curse of natural resources’ thing – people come in and cream off the profits. Not to mention that a lot of the cobalt mines and so on are illegal and run by gangsters (the legal ones are run by legal gangsters, of course).

            That’s what the network of tax havens was created for – a continuation of colonialism by other means, necessity being the mother of re-invention.

            An elaboration of what a Multi-polar world is might help.

            There are 4 poles – Africa, Asia, Greater Europe and the Islamic-Arabic world.

            Then there are the “twin-poles” of North and South America which you can consider a 5th pole given the common cultural heritage and background (Europe/Africa/Indg.)

            The former is the Classical world and the latter is the New world. Many people see a rapture taking place between the New and Classical worlds in the future – a de facto breakup of the planet into 2 geographic blocs.

          • Amman March 29, 2023 at 10:16 am #

            I tend to see a pole as a cultural, economic and geographic Unit based on a shared roots, identity and heritage.

            When African power and influence increase, and when the Islamic-Arab world forming around Iran crystallize, these poles should not and will not be Hegemons.

        Until this country does two things, hanging a shooter from the nearest lamppost, shooting them is okay too, and putting insane dysfunctional people away, especially if on someone’s watchlist.

        The shooter at East High in Denver was on watchlists, was required to be patted down every morning before entering school. He shot the patters.

        It is the government’s job to maintain a safe society. This Liberalized Woke joke of a country will never slow down shootings, only encouraging nuts to express themselves. Gun control is a joke. The FBI is a joke. All the shooters have been on watchlists, but never enforced.

        BTW, the effect of every shooting is to increase gun sales for self defense.

          About school shootings……..

          In my view, the entire educational system in the USA is the root cause of all the mental illness in the country in the first place. This will only become obvious post collapse. It will be impossible for broke governments to come up with the resources to support the incredibly costly and energy hungry system we have now. We have giant schools with kids being bused and driven to them on traffic clogged roads. JHK says this seemed like a good idea at the time. During collapse, after a few years of no school whatsoever and general chaos and crisis everywhere, parents will be astonished at how well their home schooling goes. Some home schools with larger classes will happen in private homes converted to private neighborhood schools. All of these type schools will be within walking distance of students’ homes. Compulsory education will be gone and no men with guns will show up to force kids into schools. Children will walk to school again because no resources and no diesel will be available for the big yellow buses. Those huge mega-schools will be repurposed into local sweatshop factories for making shoes and clothing, or be demolished and scrapped.

          But in the meantime before sanity and reality returns to education, the mental illness everywhere will continue to get worse because each year the schools get worse and less connected from reality, The delusional college educated females running elementary education – these females are barking mad themselves and in no position to lead a child anywhere except into woke madness. What goes on in schools now is poorly disguised child abuse. The teachers are sick and so are the students.

          The other giant predator institution that will make a massive bang and a huge cloud of dust when it collapses is our “health care system”. It’s a scam similar to the education scam, and it will collapse for the same reasons – no resources left to support it and the public becoming aware of how much damage the system causes. People everywhere will be astonished after they notice a general improvement in public health post collapse. Health improves after we stop with the pills, shots, operations, etc. After we stop eating trash and eat back yard garden food instead. After we quit driving everywhere and are forced to use bicycles. After we mow our own yards because we cannot afford to pay a landscaping company. After we rake our own yards with hand held leaf rakes because fuel and spare parts for leaf blowers won’t be available. After we heat our homes with wood we’ve gathered ourselves, after we after we after we……….

            @Woodchuck, Some of my relatives attended a one room school between 1950 and 1960, and remember the experience with affection. The older kids were expected to help the younger ones, which you might think would cause confusion all round. But if you’ve ever tried to explain how to do something that you don’t entirely and completely understand yourself, you soon know exactly what it is that you don’t know, and it sends you back to the drawing board (in this case, to the teacher) to fill in the blanks. The kids loved being responsible for some part of what the younger ones learned.

            Aside from the interesting learning advantages and taking on of responsibility that you actually earned, they all remember it as being so much more pleasant and nurturing than the mammoth factories we subject the kids to now. You knew everyone in your little world, including all the parents, and they knew you.

          One important fact that’s being airbrushed out of the “narrative” is if she was on testosterone which increases aggression. And once again the out and out lie that infants are “assigned” a gender:

          “A police spokesperson told ABC News that Hale was assigned female at birth, and pointed to a social media account linked to Hale that included use of the pronouns he/him.”

          A friend’s granddaughter is in a relationship with a trans and she gets her free testosterone from Planned Parenthood. I thought PP was for family planning — I guess not.

      I personally think most mass shootings at public places or churches, etc. are psyops-based. Because they didn’t start in earnest until after the Kennedy assassination. They seem to have a dual purpose of terrorizing the public (and keeping us terrorized) and trying to get our guns taken away.

    • MaryQueen March 27, 2023 at 4:27 pm #

      Another purpose of these school shootings (or the obvious result) is having schools run more and more like prisons, with security cameras and locking people in/out and checkpoints.

          Yep, probably all confused because of gender issues, so may as well take it out on society. There is a reason the church does not support gender reassignment and is in favor of conversion therapy. Society needs to stop supporting this bullshit and not encourage gender confusion, but I’m afraid it is much too late to ask for that.

    Interesting video this AM.

    Kari Lake

    Rasmussen ran a poll in Arizona. The poll asked a large sample of 2022 voters who they voted for.

    Four races were asked about,

    The governor, Secretary of State and Attorney General. Plus the Senate race.

    The results were that the initial three races were approximately 50 %for the GOP candidate and 43 to 46% for the Democrat. The speaker stated that it would be viewed as suspicious except for one thing, the Senate race using the same group was won by the Dem, Kelly by 50 to 46%, the results reported. The speaker concluded by saying that stinks of fraud.

      Actually he is one of the better American presidents in terms of diplomacy.

      The rest is also twaddle, but not worth commenting on.

          Biden is already past Do Not Resuscitate and everyone knows he ain’t running the Corporation. Side-show Donald is still bad reality TV.

            Sidedhow Donald is the only president other than Kennedy who has challenged your masters.

            When one realizes the stakes, and the veil that has been lifted since Trump won the presidency, one also realizes that superficial things like hairstyles and media buzz really aren’t that important.

            Joe-Joe fondles children on live TV, but usually presents himself in a way that is more socially palatable to those who care about that sort of thing.

            Perhaps that is important to you.

            Dr NO

            Biden is DNR and not running the plantation. I am not a fan. It’s not an either or thing. James wrote an article about Trump. I am expressing an opinion about Trump the reality TV star who played 4 seasons as the President, that doesn’t mean I have any respect or interest in the dead President in the White House (Biden).

          • Night Owl March 27, 2023 at 6:12 pm #

            The post had nothing to do with whether Biden is running the show.

            I was illustrating that your concerns about superficial things really do not interest me. Discussion of policy-related issues you have with Trump would. As that is all that matters.

            Biden is palatable to lots of folks because he adheres to social mores. He generally presents well in the superficial sense. And on occasion, he then has the freedom to feel up kids in public and no one bats an eyelid.

      A perfect syllogism, but that doesn’t establish its truth value. First the premises must established as true.

            What on earth makes you think she is any kind of Nazi? The trans activist mob label anyone who opposes them as ‘fascist’ or ‘Nazi’.

            So, you don’t need a definition of Nazi unless you’re brain dead. The woman isn’t right wing, left wing or any other wingspan position. She’s an ordinary wife and mother who doesn’t want her daughter growing up in a world where men have a legal entitlement to hold sway in places where they have no right to be.

    Is there any correlation to additional shootings by those with the clot shot vaxx? We know that thing messes with everything else in your body, so I don’t think this would be much of a stretch.

    • SoftStarLight March 27, 2023 at 5:42 pm #

      Interesting hypothesis! Also hormonal changes must be considered when dealing with girl/guy hybrids. But the jabby jabs are said to change peoples’ personalities too so that seems like it would be a really troubling combo sitch.

      Yes, who knows.

      Apparently “they” have a manifesto.

      So, that’ll be some interesting reading.

      Depending on the political persuasion of the network, this shooting is already being buried, particularly at MSNBC.

      • MaryQueen March 27, 2023 at 6:12 pm #

        The only positive I’ve seen is that the media and the police are calling her a female and a she, which is correct. Instead of the usual bullshit where they report the person as the opposite sex.

        But of course if it were a dude in a dress, they’d probably also report him as “she.” Funny how that works.

        • Islander March 27, 2023 at 8:20 pm #

          “The only positive I’ve seen is that the media and the police are calling her a female and a she, which is correct.”

          How do we know this is “correct”?

          If “she” is a trans-woman, then that is “correct,” not correct.

          • MaryQueen March 27, 2023 at 8:46 pm #

            She is a woman. That’s how they are reporting it. Usually, the MSM reports women who ID as men as men. And men who ID as women as women.

          • Islander March 28, 2023 at 9:50 am #

            “And men who ID as women as women.”

            So she could be a man IDing as a woman.

            And this would be “correct,” not actually correct.

    • Blackbird March 27, 2023 at 6:50 pm #

      Well, the solution is obvious: disarm innocent, non-violent people, and pour more money into programs to assist the “transgendered” with, well, everygoddamnthing. We also re-educate people on the need to value shemales and other such wonders of the (un)natural world.

      The poor thing (correct pronoun) is the real victim here. It’s the school that killed it (correct pronoun). In fact, all of Christianity is to blame. How much longer are we going to allow these bigots to run schools that only teach hate?

        Hormones in general are much more powerful that is acknowledged. If you’ve ever talked to anyone who was on hormone therapy for some medical reason, they’ll tell you that this stuff really fucks you up. Back in my youth, when I took birth control pills, I had one friend who advised me to get off of them. (Maybe I was displaying some emotional excesses. I didn’t think much about it at the time, especially since everyone else was displaying a lot of emotional excesses.)

        • JohnAZ March 28, 2023 at 10:59 am #

          Yeah, no kidding?

          A very tiny amount of testosterone establishes maleness development in utero. A huge increase in hormone secretion creates men and women at puberty, most of the time.

          A few missing genes in the Y chromosome determines he balance between estrogen and testosterone.

          Ironically, the same hormones kill many folks with cancer.

        • MaryQueen March 28, 2023 at 7:56 pm #

          My brother is in the middle of hormone treatment (to be followed by ‘salvage radiotherapy’) for prostate cancer which has returned after it was treated surgically back in about 2018, He’s at least triple jabbed and impervious to my conspiracy theories about the nefarious consequences for his immune system.

          I assumed the hormone bit would be relatively benign (he’s just had one injection and is due another in 2 or 3 months) but it’s not sounding so benign now …

          Does it work, at least, for prostate cancer?

          • MaryQueen March 30, 2023 at 6:43 pm #

          Keep an eye on Kari Lake’s attempt to uncover the corruption built into the electoral process. IMHO, the lack of authentic identification of mail in ballots is the Democrats key to victory. A big question for me is how come the cities, with the best electoral counting procedures, always report in last, changing the direction of many races.

          Kari’s situation was the most BS I have witnessed. Imagine running against the Secretary of State, responsible for the integrity of the election, and having 40% of the voting sites go down for 4 hours in the morning of Election Day.

          Again, IMHO, the cities are pushing phony ballots through the counters, with unverified IDs, in enough quantities to overcome GOP leads. Only GOP leads as to get caught would be a disaster. Minimal risk!

          Maybe, the Libs control the courts, so nothing would probably happen anyway.

        It was only the SNP party membership who voted for him, SSL. I can’t remember exactly, but I think there are only about 45,000 or so of them. And he was the Sturgeon continuity candidate, so all the pro-Sturgeon followers would have voted for him.

        He’s pro all the trans and woke stuff and he’s the one responsible for the legislation to make ‘hate speech’ illegal in your own home, so if wee Johnny tells his teacher that mummy said that ‘woman’ is a man, mummy could be arrested (theoretically anyway). He’s massively dangerous, but also massively stupid, earning the name Humza Useless because he was an acknowledged disaster in every ministerial post he ever held (Transport, Justice, Health).

        Even with a digital vote to make it easier for them, only 70% of the SNP membership bothered to vote, They haemorrhaged about 30,000 members in the last year. Scottish Labour and the Scottish Tories wanted him to win, because he will likely sink the SNP at the next elections. He only won by 52% against Kate Forbes’ 48%.

        • SoftStarLight March 28, 2023 at 11:03 am #

          Well it is good to hear that he isn’t popular or lionized there though I am sure your media may idolize him. I just think the situation is crazy. Would a white Scot or English be allowed for example to be elevated to parliament in Pakistan? And then even if that happened would it be ok for him to lecture the nation about how there are too many brown people in leadership in Pakistan. It simply would not be tolerated for a moment. That is the part I don’t get about white people. But hopefully he will sink the SNP completely.

        Seems ‘hate speech’ is a thing for everyone else, but not for them. They get away with actual incitement to murder, while some bloke in England who said something about trans activists had 5 police officers at his door and was arrested for offending them.

        • Blackbird March 27, 2023 at 8:08 pm #

          youtube.com/watch?v=6VTWnYOqICk&list=TLPQMjcwMzIwMjNxyjGoEqOfoA&index=3

          The link includes a clip of a… jogger… berating a white couple with a young child on the NYC subway. If a white did that to a black couple he’d be in jail, with a lynch mob waiting outside. And it would be all over the news as yet more evidence of how dangerous white people are to polite society.

          I couldn’t help but observe that the jogger had his back to the door of the subway car. Would a two-footed flying kick to the chest have been adequate to allow him to disembark a bit early?

            Paul Watson makes the important point. What has happened in the western world is that the Establishment has taught racism against whites and many people have internalized it. And it naturally has escalated into State-sanctioned violence against white people.

            I showed the video to my husband and he correctly pointed out that the man is obviously crazy. Yeah, and so was the one who ran down 62 white people at a parade. The problem is how the insanity is corralled and directed.

            Who channeled his insanity into that particular place? That would be the Establishment.

            Just like with the trans. Batshit crazy loons are empowered and encouraged to attack the marginalized. In the case of the trans, it is women who refuse to deny reality. In the case of the joggers, it is white people, period.

    Someone was talking about Trump and Russiagate—I think on the previous thread.

    Here is an interesting new twist—in The Nation, no less!! As some have noted, the timing of this is interesting. Is apartheid Israel/Netanyahu starting to get old?

    A theme of JHK’s writings now is how deranged the Americans have become because of all of the “Mind Fuckery” in the MSM. Right up there with analogues of “The Cultural Revolution” and “The Great Leap Forward”…and “Pol Pot”….

    There is a lot of very pernicious, dangerous propaganda now. Even worse, the Leadership may actually believe their own propaganda and “Drink the Kool Aid”? We’ve slipped into a very dark period of Censorship and Totalitarianism in the US…unfortunately…..

    Chris Martenson may be “The Last Sane Man in a World Gone Mad”?

    I subscribe to his website (Peak Prosperity) after reading his excellent book “The Crash Course” (Revised Edition”.

    If you just let him interpret Reality for you and let him make decisions for you, you could do a lot worse….

    Liberal Israelis fear Israel becoming a fundamentalist state, apparently. As it is, Israel is basically Sodom and Gomorrah. Netanyahu wants oversight over the Judiciary so as to allow the Religious Right to gain more power.

    Let’s face it: The religious Jews have huge families. They are the future. The Liberals have few or none. If Israel wants to live, it must gain ascendency over these walking dead. Most of Liberals are vaxed and so they will die off even faster. A terrible thing to do to their own people but they don’t seem to identify with them. The religious right will be their new mask.

  48. BackRowHeckler March 27, 2023 at 10:57 pm #

    Alba, if you’re looking in …

    Congrats on your new First Minister, Humza Yousaf, Pakastani Muslim.

    He’ll be reporting to the UK Prime Minister, a Punjabi who came from Africa.

    • GreenAlba March 28, 2023 at 6:32 am #

      He hasn’t yet been elected First Minister, brh. He is currently FM by default, having been elected by 52% of 70% of the rank and file membership of the SNP, which can be counted in the tens of thousancs, not millions. His election to head of the SNP (which at the moment is the only position he has been elected to) will possibly/probably precipitate an early Scottish election, at which, again probably/possibly, the SNP will be trounced by the electorate, barring any election fiddling.

      Humza isn’t accountable to the UK Prime Minister. Scotland is a devolved member nation of the UK (which is made up of two nations, one principality and one province) with certain powers accruing to the UK (e.g. defence), along with certain powers of veto, like the one recently exercised with respect to the SNP’s Gender Self-Identity Bill (specifically because it conflicts with the UK’s Equality legislation from decades ago – in terms of women’s rights.

      In reality, Humza is accountable to Klaus, in exactly the same way as Boris, Liz and now Rishi were/are responsible to Klaus, so while he has certainly made some noises about Scottish institutions being ‘too white’, his being a Muslim (presumably) is not the most worrying thing about him. Kate Forbes was largely rejected for being a member of the Free Church of Scotland, which is slightly stricter than the Church of Scotland. Humza doesn’t talk about religion, as far as I know. I have no idea whether or not he is a practising Muslim, but I’m sure he’d sell his granny for political power, and I don’t imagine he has any more loyalty to Islam than he has to her (assuming she’s still around).

      • GreenAlba March 28, 2023 at 7:50 am #

        Technically speaking, of course, no-one is ever elected as Prime Minister in the UK. Americans confuse our system with their presidential system. Party leaders are elected by their party and automatically become Prime Minister if their party is elected to power.

      • GreenAlba March 28, 2023 at 10:47 am #

        At the risk of boring people even further with the minutiae of the SNP election, it’s probably not the entire truth to say Humza doesn’t talk about religion. I’ve never paid that much attention to him, although I know he’s dangerous.

        He made his support for gay marriage clear, which is not a Muslim position. I don’t know what he said on abortion, but he presumably holds a similar view (insofar as he can be said to have views at all).

        And Kate Forbes didn’t choose to speak about her religious affiliations. She was – naturally grilled about them by the press, which was determined to paint her as a ‘bigot’. She only said she wouldn’t consider abortion herself, personally, and that she didn’t approve of gay marriage and wouldn’t have voted for it, but she was clear that she has always supported the decisions of Parliament on such matters, regardless of her personal views.

        But the press was out to get her and I don’t think they harrassed Humza in the same way about his religion (or lack of it). She actually did very well (48% of the vote). In the second round, Ash Regan’s votes appear to have gone to Kate Forbes. She’s one of the few competent SNP ministers (Finance) and would doubtless have walked it had it not been for the campaign to make her look like a religious bigot.

      • Jarek March 28, 2023 at 12:18 pm #

        In other words, Alba takes refuge in the technical aspects. She’s completely comfortable with non-Scots ruling Scotland since it’s all just a random assortment of INDIVIDUALS to begin with.

        Denial of the ethne or ethnic group is a key part of late stage liberalism. Denial of the race comes first and prepares the way – at least that’s how it was here. Europe may have devolved a bit differently.

        Non-practicing Muslim? So that means he won’t discriminate in favor of them, right? Oh you naif!

        Islam has been the organizing factor of Brown Caucasians against other peoples and cultures for more than a thousand years.

        • GreenAlba March 28, 2023 at 2:50 pm #

          In other words … yawn …

          I said nothing about the likelihood of him discriminating in favour of anyone. He won’t be doing anything anyway, as he’s headed for an early bath, as they say in the rugby world.

  49. BackRowHeckler March 27, 2023 at 11:05 pm #

    The main plank in Yousaf’s platform apparently was making it easier for Scottish citizens to change gender. That’s the issue that put him over the top.

    Can the UK can any more lame than it is?

    • GreenAlba March 28, 2023 at 6:50 am #

      As I said, this has nothing to do with the UK. Humza is Scotland’s misfortune and Scotland’s alone.

      The SNP lowered the voting age to 16 for Scottish parliamentary elections (it’s still 18 for UK parliamentary elections) specifically because youngsters are more likely to vote for all the woke nonsense and for fact-free, emotional appeals re independence.

      I just looked up membership requirements for joining the party. The ‘gender’ drop down menu in the application form includes ‘male, female, non-binary, rather not say, and self-describe’.

      It has ‘youth membership’ (£2/year, since you ask) which is under-16, but I imagine you’d have to be 16 to vote in a leadership contest, but that still increases the woke vote, probably, compared to 18.

      • Islander March 28, 2023 at 7:07 am #

        Thanks, GA, for your detailed explanations.

        How could winsome Scotland become so deranged? Scottish folk tunes are the world’s most beautiful.

        • GreenAlba March 28, 2023 at 7:37 am #

          As I understand it, there has been a concerted globalist attack on the devolved nations (England remains the ‘rump’ so isn’t in the same boat) and Ireland, as small nations are easier to subvert. As in the US, the infiltration is also at regional and local council level, which you need for initiatives like the 15-minute cities. The globalists were probably behind the devolution movements a long time ago, with all of this in mind.

          The EU bought favour with its Regional Funds, which funnelled money into poorer parts of the UK (as elsewhere in Europe) like Cornwall and the north of England.
          Ireland is often described as having been like a third-world country before they got EU money to build decent roads and suchlike.

          • BackRowHeckler March 28, 2023 at 8:03 am #

            Nice detailed posts GA. It couldn’t be explained any better.

            I wonder if we’ll see the day when a Scottish Presbyterian is elevated to a national leadership role in the Ummah? Probably we shouldn’t hold our collective breaths, huh?

          • GreenAlba March 28, 2023 at 8:47 am #

            I don’t think a Muslim caliphate is the plan either, brh. The ideology of the NWO includes a world religion (for utilitarian purposes only), and I don’t think it’s Islam. It’s some kind of amalgam, in the spirit of Charles Windsor’s notions, with a bit of new agey stuff thrown in (you can read the historical details in Lee Penn’s huge tome, ‘False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion, which is in my ‘purchased but still to read’ pile at home.

            Charles has not been crowned yet, but decades ago he declared that he would not consider himself Defender of the Faith (which is a traditional constitutional role of the British monarch) but ‘defender of faiths’. He’s into ecumenism, which is presented in kumbaya fashion but which is presumably part of a long-term plan to water everything down to the global ideology that is to permeate everything.

          • GreenAlba March 28, 2023 at 8:48 am #

            That’s just my impression, brh. I know nuttin’.

          • GreenAlba March 28, 2023 at 8:56 am #

            Interestingly, in Wales, where a bunch of vocal mothers (in particular) have taken on the local council over woke teaching and child grooming in schools, the Muslim community has made common cause with the women. Leaving aside the subgroup of Pakistani men involved in the grooming networks – primarily in the north of England – Muslim families are actually what is now making up ‘conservatives’.

          • Islander March 28, 2023 at 10:11 am #

            ” as small nations are easier to subvert. As in the US, the infiltration is also at regional and local council level, which you need for initiatives like the 15-minute cities. The globalists were probably behind the devolution movements a long time ago”

            Bingo!

            Of course they are also trying to break u the USA. Britain has been trying to do so since the Revolution—or at least get control of it. The place was too unruly, though. This is a key underlying driver of the Civil War. Prying the South away form the Union. Lincoln saw this: saw that the South was in effect a resource colony of the English textile industry centered in Lancashire. The riches generated by the industrial revolution in England depended on slave labor in the American South.

            What had not occurred to me is that devolution in the UK might be model for how the US is to be broken apart.

            What Sven Beckert sets forth in the seminal work Empire of Cotton: capital has now broken free of its dependence on the state to create the conditions necessary for industrial development and capital accumulation.

            Shades of Grossdeutschland and Kleindeutschland. It is funny how the Dutch most successfully divested themselves of their empire in an orderly fashion that left the wealth in the Netherlands. I wonder whether that is related to the primacy of the NLs as a historical locus of the most banking and investment (e.g., stock market) innovations.

          • JohnAZ March 28, 2023 at 10:38 am #

            This was a great discussion. GA, thank you for an enlightening discussion.

            I do have a thought about two minorities getting into two powerful positions.

            WTF? What is going on, how can folks that have deviant viewpoints get elected to such positions? Where is Ford’s Silent Majority?

            The same thing is happening in the USA. Minority protection is ingrained in the Constitution, but not minority domination. What is wrong with the majorities of both sides of the Pond? How do they allow the deviants the keys to the kingdoms? How did the entire power structure of America, and I will bet you UK, get taken over by minorities?

            Why have so many wishy washy White Europeans turned into the enemies of European integrity and allowed the minority Browns into domination? The Rome of the 400s AD did the same thing, trying to assuage the barbarians (minorities of the time). We know what happened!!!

            Islander takes modern conditions and projects them into the past in order to make a case for the War of Northern Aggression.

            Yankee Industrialism and its idea of Manifest Destiny has been the driving force of Globalism. This was true even before the amalgamation with the Jews, who have their own ancient version of it.

            If the South had managed to break away, this project might have strangled in its infancy.

    An Eastertide Karen

    Her mask was in place, a personalized face, she sewed it herself
    (Matching outfits on shelf),
    Her pronouns were clear, she was I AM A DEAR
    She may have meant ‘deer’, it is unclear from here.

    And the mask hid her goat, that tended to poke
    Which she noticed while out for her 5th morning smoke.
    She went into the office sometime before 1
    To see if her pupils who’d promised to come
    Were all in attendance, a library scrum!

    She rolled up her fishnets, her hair in a bun,
    She tucked in her package, back into her bum.
    Then she read with rollicking, muffled by mask,
    A very pc easter tale to her class.

    There were killer bunnies, bigger than her!
    And a cat with a grimace whose smile was a slur
    A big egg named Trumpy, who fell off a wall,
    An author wrote Potter who she would have nailed
    With the eggman and his merry band
    To a cross she erected there by the bandstand

    “I just know that staying in Florida is not an option. It is draconian and dystopian here. I live in fear. … It blows my mind how much misinformation there is about what being trans actually means and how Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and hormone blockers affect the body. People eat fast-food crap and yet worry about what a medicine that has been through dozens of tests does. It’s mostly ignorance, prejudice, and outright hate of the “other.”

    “I’m truly at a loss for what to do for work and what kind of life I can expect to live.”

    My comments: Welcome to Biden’s America. You can’t blame this one on Trump! Now you know how straight White males in America feel, as they are being pushed to the sidelines and treated like garbage. I don’t feel a lick of sympathy for your situation, most of which you brought upon yourself.

      It’s hard enough to imagine how ‘drag queen’, rather than being some weirdo thing that people might do at the weekend, became considered a ‘job’.

      When I was a kid, we basically had Danny la Rue (note that he didn’t even give himself a female name) who was an exceedingly glamorous music-hall act, with no sexual connotations at all, really, similar to pantomine dames but a lot more polished. I’m sure he was gay, but nobody talked about that back then. Other than him, and presumably a few others who ‘did the clubs’, drag queen wasn’t a job.

    • Paula D March 28, 2023 at 12:54 pm #

      So he came out as gay when he was 15 and had no problems, but at some point decided he was a transwoman?

      And he gets paid for performing in drag? Yeah, when did that happen?
      Are public libraries and schools paying these men to come in and show children their perversions???

      And then he says that if there were programs to help LBGTQWERTY kids he wouldn’t have gotten into drugs?
      But he already said that he was accepted when he came out.

      So just being accepted “for who I am” is no longer the goal. He wants to be paid for it.

      That was a top down change. This is another example of the Establishment nurturing chaos and hate and extreme senses of entitlement, in order to destroy the country.

      And the drugs they pump into these people are not ”fully tested”. What an idiot. I’ll bet he’s up-to-date on the boosters, as well.

      Estrogen was shown to be dangerous for women decades ago. How could it be safe for men? We already know it causes blood clots.

      Testosterone is toxic to women. Not in the ”toxic masculinity” way, in the “it will fuck up your body and make you need a hysterectomy” way.

      Hormone blockers are also dangerous. They are approved for older men with prostate cancer, not for stopping normal growth and development in children. The side effects are also dangerous, for old men and for children. They have already been shown to cause interference in normal bone and brain development, as well as in the targeted sexual organs.

      The fact that this person was allowed to whine about his loss of income because the state of Florida is legislating against child endangerment, just shows that the agenda is still being pushed by the Establishment.
      Clearly, we are supposed to cry for this man. I’m not doing that, but I know that many brainwashed people will.

I don’t know what these are about, but they seem to sell like hotcakes, and I think they could be trannie-themed. You need a sewing machine that does machine embroidery.

    Re: Scotland. The average person can recognize a well run sporting play, a finely tuned turn of phrase.

    But where is the admiration for a perfectly executed divide and conquer initiative, a master stroke in political power projection generations in the making?

    Thus is why the common man simply has no chance. Learning useful trades, developing professional careers, trying to be productive members of society. All idiot ants manipulated and controlled by those who don’t waste their time on such trivial matters.

    If you try and warn beforehand, you’ll be ignored. If you deconstruct what happened after the fact, you’ll still have some recognizing yet another opportunity to manipulate the masses by promising retribution and justice to be administered in the not too distant future …

    The entire spectacle really is a Vanity Fair; so many characters of all stripes playing to get an edge. Here’s some honest advice: heed Franklins observation on death and taxes. Substitute government aka power for taxes, and you have your two absolutes.

    Now, what constants effect both? Yes, our natural world, the one governed by actual limits in the form of natural resources, which, subject to demand levels determines the degree of competition or cooperation in acquiring and controlling.

    I’m constantly suggesting people should refrain from complaining; it just demonstrates weakness and emotional fragility. The facts of our present status are clear if you just look.

      That’s pretty much the same as suggesting ‘admiration’ for a professional gentleman burglar, as mythologised in various Hollywood films over the years. Admire if you feel the need – personally I think that says more about you than it does about them.

      “I’m constantly suggesting people should refrain from complaining; it just demonstrates weakness and emotional fragility. The facts of our present status are clear if you just look.”

      What you’re constantly doing is patronising people because that’s what you get off on. Most people on here know exactly what the score is and don’t need your constant lessons to the boys and girls. We’ll talk about what we like, thanks.

      The outcome was determined a very, very long time ago and you, sunshine, are on the wrong side of history. Enjoy your sense of superiority while you can. Your comeuppance is assured. The higher they fly, the harder they fall. Your self-flattery will be your undoing. Tough.

      Correct. He became violent because of testosterone treatments most likely. And there may have been interactions with other drugs like antidepressants, etc. The low brow partisan dialogue around all of this has been truly disconcerting to say the least. You can acknowledge someone’s reality even if you don’t share it and you can also share values with someone without supporting evil things they do. Humans need to start thinking.

          Wow that is crazy that it was not even mentioned! Clearly it is part of the story. But they are doing that strategically because the story they want is gun control. And then they wonder why some people just start thinking the events are staged from start to finish so that politicians can use them to gain more power while reducing rights. I certainly don’t blame anymore for thinking it is all being done by government and intel.

          The fact that the woman was trans-identified was also not mentioned on NPR today.

          Oh, and my husband reports that yesterday NPR discussed the fact that the US has a dropping life expectancy compared to other industrialized countries.

          Hmm, why would that be?

            I tried looking up declining US life expectancy. All three links that I went to seemed to at least partially conflict with each other. One site had a breakdown by race for 2019, showing that the Hispanic life expectancy declined by 3 years, the black life expectancy by 2.9 years, and the white life expectancy by 0.7 years. These were the figures for “2019 to 2020,” which, to my mind, means January 1st 2019 to January 1st 2020. That’s huge, if true–and that’s for 2019.

            I suppose the way you arrive at life expectancy by year is to record each person’s age-at-death during that year. Now, if you did it this way, you could see a greatly decreased AVERAGE life expectancy if you had large numbers of people dying in their teens and twenties (or younger); i.e., gang violence or drug overdoses. This is why life expectancies in the 1800s are so low: They average in a very high infant mortality rate. If you lived till you were ten, you’d likely make it to 90.

            But even so, the big reduction in 2019 seems weird. And apparently the average dropped by another two years during the next year or two. I’m unclear on when they were talking about. One site even said that white life expectancy edged up during one of those years. Very confusing.

            If anyone knows of a reliable source of data, I’d be interested.

      • Islander March 28, 2023 at 11:10 am #

        Why would a trans-woman get testosterone treatments?

        Or, was this a woman transitioning to male?

        It’s so confusing!!!

          Audrey Hale was a biological female transitioning to a male. I am not sure exactly why transitioning is used to describe the change. Perhaps becoming or molting could be utilized instead? That is why I was saying that people really need to start thinking because this stuff is getting really out of hand.

          • Islander March 28, 2023 at 1:39 pm #

            This is sad, because traditionally, in the West, many women have passed as men and this has not been all that difficult. Even back in the fifties there were plenty of “mannish” women around, with short hair cuts, etc. Everyone knew they were dykes, and no one cared.

            AFAIK women passing or posing as men have never been the source of as much ridicule as a man trying to become, or pass, as a woman.

            To me the reason for this is obvious: Men have more authority and status. Also, a woman posing as a man is cute, whereas a man pretending to be a woman is pathetic, ridiculous, gross, freakish, etc.

            Check out Liza Minelli, Debby Reynolds, etc. with mustachios on and dancing around on stage. Cute! A man dancing around with a skirt is funny/ha ha or funny/peculiar. If he really thinks he is a woman or thinks we should believe he is a woman, it goes from peculiar to freakish.

            Women are kind of neonates because smaller and rounder, so it is cute if they pretend to be “bigger.” Like a little girl in her mom’s high heels. A full-grown man pretending to be a woman is like the two ugly elder sisters in Cinderella trying to get their feet into the glass slipper.

            In many settings, such as war, piracy, etc., a woman would get no respect unless she can project the same authority as a man.

            One of my favorites: Grace O’Malley. In Westport, Ireland, at the head of Clew Bay, they are tremendously proud of her. As a woman you are kind of challenged –Do you have the mojo of Grace O’Malley?? I wonder whether there has ever been a movie about her.

            httpX://www.rmg.co.uk/stories/topics/grace-o-malley-irish-female-pirate

            The really powerful women in history were the ones who weren’t afraid to take charge, no matter how many husbands /lovers/ kiddies they had on hand. Like Catherine the Great of Russia and Marie-Therese. If her daughter, Marie-Antoinette, had been more like her mother, her head might not have rolled.

            My daughter was in a couple of dragon boat racing teams when she was working in Singapore – one team was called the Celtic Dragons and their boat was called the Grace O’Malley.

I have seen instances of both. I have seen some mtf who are very pretty and actually not very big or tall or what have you and so it is difficult to even know they are trans. I have also seen some ftm who are very convincing as men.

            In my maternal grandmother’s family – they had a strong sense of history (Norman Invasion, Roanoke, Popham Colony, Abolition) and their place in it – there was apparently a woman who joined the Union Army (as a “man”) to fight in the War of Northern Aggression.

            While I am an unrepentant Copperhead, I can admire someone who has the strength of character to swim against the current to further their cause. (Today’s trannies don’t count – they ride in limos with the current.) Even the most evil empires (US, UK, Nazi Germany, Soviet Union) produced real heroes when their backs were against the wall.

            After the war, she lived as a woman – because that’s what she was.

          Yes, what is psychology or mentality? Men are savaged and devalued in the West, so the desire transition to the winning side makes some sense.

          But why do girls want to become men? Pop culture puts forward the idea and image of men being as strong as men, as tough as men, etc. Do many of the girls know its crap, but still love the basic idea? But think they have to transition in order to attain it?

          Of course they can’t, but they may not know that.

          • Rowdypiglet March 28, 2023 at 1:17 pm #

            @Jarek, This subject is one that interests me – not the outcome that we see in the public displays of mental illness, but the causes. It seems that transitioning has wide appeal – for the Munchausen by Proxy liberal moms, for confused adolescents, for the weak minded and easily manipulated, the narcissists, the manipulators, the seriously mentally ill. Something for everyone who doesn’t have (at least) a strong sense of self and connection to reality.

            I’ve recently wondered why there are no drag kings, as far as I’m aware. There are no trans men clamoring to dress as grotesque parodies of men and to parade themselves in front of children. Why? Do they have a different motive in attempting to become men from the motive of men masquerading as women?

            It may be that the majority of trans men were propelled into it by adults or were misled during their adolescence. Many, maybe most, young girls are distressed, surprised, or taken aback by the changes in their bodies as they become adults. They’re vulnerable, and easily lured or pushed into becoming lifelong patients. Once their bodies have been permanently altered and they cannot go back, they have a profound emotional investment in believing they did the right thing.

          • GreenAlba March 28, 2023 at 1:35 pm #

            “I’ve recently wondered why there are no drag kings, as far as I’m aware. There are no trans men clamoring to dress as grotesque parodies of men and to parade themselves in front of children. Why?”

            Leaving aside the unfortunate confused, many of the men are autogynephiles. They are fetishists, and fetishes are almost entirely a male thing, hence the imbalance.

          • Paula D March 28, 2023 at 3:00 pm #

            The trans thing used to be strictly men, as GA points out, because fetishes are almost exclusively a male thing.

            But the 4,000% rise in teenaged girls deciding that they are trans is clearly a social contagion, pushed from the top, and not a sudden female fetish development.

            When a girl has been told since toddlerhood that sex is outdated and there are 47 genders, and that changing one’s sex is simply a matter of hormones (perfectly safe and effective) and surgery, and then she hits puberty and her body is doing things she doesn’t particularly like, and TikTok is showing her cute videos of the awesome things testosterone does to girls……
            gosh, why are there so many teenaged girls having their breasts cut off (by adults) and taking powerful drugs that will ruin their bodies (pushed by adults) and insisting that their teachers call them by their new names and preferred pronouns (such power over adults!)?

            It’s a mystery.

          • Jarek March 28, 2023 at 3:12 pm #

            Well the word exists or did, but yeah, the reality not at all. Some women are mannish and like mannish clothing. Some are in between, liking “sporty” clothing. But camping it up – No, you are right.

            Even the some what charming K.D Lang was a bit masculine, though “handsome” enough to have attracted a man.

            But normal or even above average feminine girls doing this? Why? Just saw an old picture of the shooter. Pretty and feminine.

            Yes, mass hysteria and social contagion. How did they do it? I’m not close enough to this cohort to really understand what is motivating these girls. I can only guess as I did above.

          • SoftStarLight March 28, 2023 at 3:41 pm #

            Ultimately the interesting thread that connects all of these conversations is that everyone here essentially believes that males are of less value and females are of more value. Therefore men are associated with everything bad and women with all things that are good. And so everyone is acting is if they are shocked that women can make choices. It’s actually really strange to me. Some women are apparently simply naturally attracted to masculinity for themselves and want to embrace that and become that. I am not going to pretend I understand those mechanisms but it does happen. The trans phenomenon now has been massively propagandized and pushed sort of like how being gay and bi was like 10 years ago. Then everybody was gay or bi or wanted to be. Now it is trans. So there is a social contagion aspect to all of this. But for a very small number of people this is just something very real that they deal with and a majority of people male and female are simply not going to understand it because it isn’t something they experience.

          • Paula D March 28, 2023 at 4:37 pm #

            Jarek, you don’t have to be their age to see that they have been propagandized into mental illness. You see it as it is presented to adults.
            They get it from the time they are toddlers, in school, on TV, and on social media.

            Propaganda is effective at changing behavior, but now we are watching as they literally make people crazy.

            The last three years are an example. They turned the entire population into paranoid, hypochondriac. OCD agoraphobics, compulsively washing their hands, wearing masks, and attacking friends and family who were resistant to insanity.

            How did they do it? Same as when they attack the children, through their mass propaganda methods.

            Check out this article from July of 2019. It was part of the propaganda push to turn Democrats into TDS insanity.
            It is ridiculing Trump for being “germaphobic”, and clearly showing the pre-2020 view that being germaphobic was a mental illness.
            And yet 6 months later the same propaganda organs were used to turn the entire population into Howie Mandel.

            THAT is the power of propaganda, and that is what is happening to teenaged girls today, when it comes to the trans mania.

            Are you agreeing with me that the world now believes men are bad? If so, why do you think women want to be masculine? That’s my question to myself (and the group) as well.

            Is this something that Nature is doing, since someone has to embody the masculine? If men fail and are attracted to the feminine, women then must take their place as masculine?

            In Humanist psychology, Maslow and others have said that the mature human will gradually grow into the values of the opposite sex – without having to “transition”, become bisexual or anything like that.

            In Jungian terms, both men and women have a bit of the opposite sex in them, men an “anima” and women, an animus. Robert Bly of the Men’s Movement (see his “Iron John”) used this idea to advance the theory that the animus (or the feminine in men) is eating them alive since the masculine isn’t allow to blossom by single mothers, female teachers, and the general anti-male zeitgeist. So instead of being integrated later, after healthy masculine and egoic development, it grows like a weed choking out the healthy growth.

            Is something similar now happening to girls in regards to their animus?

          • Paula D March 28, 2023 at 4:47 pm #

            SSL no one in this conversation said that men were bad and women were good.
            It’s actually kind of funny that you would say that about Jarek.

            Social contagion is its own thing, and doesn’t have to be understood as anything else than mass hysteria.

            No point in trying to understand how it feels to have body dysphoria. It clearly sucks, from anorexia to trans to the ones where people want their legs or arms cut off, or to have their eyes removed.

            Why is the hating one’s own genitals the only BD celebrated in our culture? Why do we have to struggle so hard to affirm that one, instead of recognizing that it is a mental illness that needs to be overcome?
            Why is the Establishment pushing this particular mental illness so hard, and giving license for violent men and women to attack sane people, on the grounds of “tolerance”?

            Personally, I feel that a society should strive for sanity, reason and reality.

            Are you agreeing with me that the world now believes men are bad?

            Yes. Of course I can only speak for the area of the world I live in but essentially yes. And also understanding this is a media driven thing in large part. Men are associated with bad while women are shown to be be good and wonderful at everything. This creates too much of a dichotomy even for those who believe it. Thus masculinity becomes an area that needs to be understood, policed and brought into the realm of working for the good. Masculinity becomes a project and a process of cleansing that which is bad and unclean. And there are benefits. Less pressure about appearance and perceived freedom to express and emote differently and perhaps more freely. Less pressure to be perfect. There really is much to unpack here imo.

            I do like to try to understand and empathize where someone is coming from though of course that is simply not completely possible. But I always feel bad for those coming across adversity. I rational, sane, and realistic society is good to the extent it exists. But people make up society. So understanding what makes people tick is important. But yes there is a a point where there are norms and that is maybe the main issue. The elites are trying to destroy all norms so they can rebuild a society they own. Existing norms being removed are obstacles for them.

            The importance of free speech is that the truth is easier to find when everyone is allowed to discuss the matter.

            Are you agreeing with me that the world now believes men are bad?

            I don’t know that the world believes that men are bad or less than; I certainly don’t. But, on the left, TPTB seem to be propagandizing that view. I can understand why you might think the world believes it. That slogan of “believe all women” (in reference to sexual assault/ harassment) is a great example of the propaganda. What kind of craziness is that? The slogan should be “all accusations must be investigated”. Neither sex has cornered the market on truthfulness or on lying. To say otherwise is absurd. Rape is real and underreported and accusations should be investigated so that rapists can be removed from society.

            There are other examples, the eternally fumbling husband in sitcom-land tv, five foot tall female martial arts experts who can out fight any man in a movie plot, etc.

            I just think it’s important to understand that certain people are trying to shape our views. Ultimately, one hopes we can evaluate each other based on a person’s character and actions. I hope that how I am judged.

            I absolutely don’t believe that men are of less value, and I’ve never said anything to that effect. I’ve been occasionally accused of not valuing women, but that’s not the case either. We do things differently and have different gifts.

            Until recently, men ran most things outside the home. When the things that men run fail, they fail in ways that are characteristic of men, and we recognize those ways. There are characteristic ways of failing that are particular to women, but we’re just beginning to be aware of what they are. I point them out for that reason, whereas men’s failings are already well known.

            As an example, the Munchausen by Proxy-type trans activisim we see in mothers is rarely if ever seen in men; it’s a woman thing, and it manifests where women run things and can get away with it. That’s not to say that some men don’t make use of it for their own reasons.

        • MaryQueen March 28, 2023 at 1:19 pm #

          Actually, she would identify as a trans-man. Not a trans-woman. A trans-woman is a male who identifies as female. I’m not sure why this is so confusing to you.

            Oh, come on.

            I guess have to write out “tongue in cheek” for you.

        • Jarek March 28, 2023 at 1:47 pm #

          Ok, but dykes aren’t cute. Ever. Nobody cared? Bet you’re wrong. Polite society didn’t talk about such people.

          Passing means people think you’re the sex you’re pretending to be. You said they passed and then said everyone knew they were dykes. Which is it?

          You mean they were tolerated – at least by some if they stayed in their place? Ok.

          • Islander March 28, 2023 at 1:54 pm #

            I didn’t say dykes are cute.

            I said “passed or posed.” In my comment I said nothing further about women who have successfully passed as men (that is, they were not revealed as women for a long time, or ever).

            If you seek further info, just do a google search for “women who have successfully passed as men.”

            As usual, you miss the point in order to argue.

          • Jarek March 28, 2023 at 2:34 pm #

            As Mary says, most don’t try to pass for men. They are proud to be the kind of woman no man looks at or desires.

            Some don’t even dislike men, enjoying comradeship with them if accepted. The really sad ones are the heterosexual dyke types. A hard road indeed.

            We’re not arguing, we’re talking. Or perhaps debating. Do you know the difference?

          • Jarek March 28, 2023 at 3:16 pm #

            Islander, above:

            This is sad, because traditionally, in the West, many women have passed as men and this has not been all that difficult. Even back in the fifties there were plenty of “mannish” women around, with short hair cuts, etc. Everyone knew they were dykes, and no one cared.

            Jarek: Conflation of different ideas, which she then denies saying.

            Some women have indeed passed as men – including one famous gun fighter in the Old West I believe. Yeah, and for some it may not be that hard!

      • MaryQueen March 28, 2023 at 1:15 pm #

        A lot of young people committing murder and other crimes while on SSRIs. You can almost bet this woman was. Add hormones to the mix and yowza.

        They only want to talk about guns though, as if guns pick themselves up and tote themselves to schools and start shooting.

        • Rowdypiglet March 28, 2023 at 1:39 pm #

          @MaryQueen, I’ve had personal experience of seeing the change in personality in people taking SSRIs. They’re handed out like candy, especially to children and teens, with no idea at all of what the result will be. When it isn’t what they hoped for, they add another drug. The effect, for some people, resembles nothing so much as demonic possession.

            It’s noted that you think killing is a brave thing to do. So shooting 3 children and 3 teachers is noble, then, I guess, in Jar Jar world.

            Women shouldn’t be in the military. They don’t have the killer instinct. But hopped up on these drugs, maybe we can start drafting them instead of men. Your turn!

        • mrs_saj March 29, 2023 at 2:16 am #

          MQ,

          Then add in the vaxxines, which have also been known to alter personality. It’s just a chemical cocktail of insanity and instability.

          • Rowdypiglet March 30, 2023 at 12:02 pm #

            MaryQ, I don’t think that anyone believes that killing is noble, but it can be brave (when risking one’s own life to protect others or remove a threat) and it can also be absolutely necessary.

            I know I harp on this point, but men and women are different and, if we admit that fact (and I think most here do) it’s implicit that they operate out in the world in ways that are characteristic of their sex. Women are much more apt than men to attack in covert ways with gossip and manipulation; men just openly bludgeon their enemies.

            Having seen this play out in the form of office politics, I can extrapolate to how it would manifest in the military, for instance. I think the presence of women there is ruinous for this and other reasons. The equivalent to a killer instinct in women expresses itself differently from that of men. It doesn’t typically end up on the field of battle, and isn’t suited to do so.

    Graham Linehan’s ‘Week in the War on Women’ Substack has an occasional Good News Supplement. Today’s is dedicated to Kellie-Jay Keen, unsurprisingly.

    Good news in some US states too, in terms of ‘leaving those kids alone’.

    Although I was slightly amused by Keir Starmer’s “[…] I think there are lessons from Scotland and the primary lesson is that changes which don’t carry public confidence are almost certainly not the right changes.”

    This is the man who recently told a BBC ‘reporter’ that he favours Davos (‘people I could work with’) over fuddy-duddy Westminster. When Labour get in at the next election, which I’m pretty sure they will, this is the man who will be implementing digital ID and the rest of the agenda, which has been prepared without any say by the public, bar an incredibly brief online consultation on digital ID that nobody was even told was there. Starmer is ever bit as dangerous as the SNP clown. Bought and paid for.

      • GreenAlba March 28, 2023 at 1:40 pm #

        Who’s Erin Pizzey?

        You keep repeating the same lie about the women in vaxx-induced spasm. It really is an appalling character trait.

        You never, ever provided a link to the alleged women anywhere that I saw. And back then I read pretty much all the comments. I asked you three separate times for a link and got no response (if you want someone to see a link, you post it under the person’s post where they requested it, because that’s where they’re going to look).

        I eventually saw the women much, much later, in some of the videos circulating last year.

    Why didn’t she just leave it at that? She looks and sounds like a normal, healthy person.

    Whose idea was it for her to take dangerous drugs and “transition”?

    Who administered the drugs to her? A doctor? Is this person maybe lying low at this point?

      It’s all coming out in the wash.

      There are a few lawsuits against the medical community for the transing business. Lots of detransitioner pain and lives ruined.

      I hope this will be a wake-up call, but as I said upthread, the people pushing the trans agenda are only concentrating on guns, not the reasons behind why some people do these things.

    • SoftStarLight March 28, 2023 at 3:25 pm #

      Maybe she wanted to transition on her own accord? She was an adult. What can one do when an adult wants to do this? Certainly any doctors who are transing children should be sued to oblivion and lose their medical licenses and perhaps jailed. But when one becomes an adult the person themselves should be accountable. Where does her personal responsibility begin?

      • Islander March 28, 2023 at 4:00 pm #

        SSL: the proof of the pudding is in the eating;

        For Audrey trying to become a male sure looks like it was a bad decision.

        She does not look wealthy. Who was paying for it?

        Very likely she was very unhappy at this Christian school. Perhaps her resentment was justified.

        But look where she is now.
        Dead.
        Six others are dead, including three nine-year-olds. I don’t see where personal responsibility comes into it at this point.

        We need to find out exactly whose medical care she was under. We need to see the medical records. Of course we won’t get to see them, so we’ll never find out what the whole story is.

        • MaryQueen March 28, 2023 at 4:56 pm #

          You’re right, Islander: There should be investigations into the mindset and movements of the shooters before they commit these murders so we have a better idea of what causes it. My guess is this is not done, or kept handy in a database, on purpose. Or if it is, it is known by people like the FBI and ignored, because school shootings are a plus to the ruling overlords. They don’t want the problem solved and they mean to keep these agendas that make people crazy going forward.

          • MaryQueen March 28, 2023 at 5:08 pm #

            Sorry – an investigation into what they did before the shootings after they happened, if that’s not obvious.

          • Islander March 28, 2023 at 6:21 pm #

            Prescription drugs have been an element in a lot of the school shootings.

            I don’t have the stats at my fingertips.

            This means that disturbed and unhappy people are mis-treated—re receiving the wrong medical interventions. The interventions may be driving them over the edge.

  61. K-Chien March 28, 2023 at 2:45 pm #

    This shit is complicated. I have to look up basic definitions to understand what is going on.

    TERF is an acronym for “trans-exclusionary radical feminism” or “trans-exclusionary radical feminist.” Where does TERF come from?

    TERF is used to describe cisgender women who self-identify as feminist but who are opposed to including transgender women in spaces they reserve for people who were assigned female at birth.

    I think the only one around here who can deal with this complexity is Pucker.

    By my own rule I could not put both words:

    transgender women

    In bold text together, showing sympathy for the TERF position. But I am not a woman. I am not a feminist. I am a dog who will rub up against the leg of a feminist if she lets me. So what am I?

    Trans-Exclusionary Radical Dog, or TERD does not work for me. Many here will disagree, but that is not the point.

    Anyhow, the violent reaction against the TERF shows Trans, whatevers are really men. Violence being more of a male thing.

    Pucker please help.

    • GreenAlba March 28, 2023 at 2:58 pm #

      TERF is, in practice, used for any women (and, I think, men who sympathise with them) who opposed The Agenda. I’m not a radical feminist and Posie Parker doesn’t appear to be any kind of feminist (as Mary pointed out), unless a very subtle one. She’s a wife and mother – not that you can’t be a wife, mother and feminist, but feminism isn’t her thing – she’s defending in women’s rights, not feminists’ rights.

      • GreenAlba March 28, 2023 at 2:59 pm #

      • MaryQueen March 28, 2023 at 5:07 pm #

        Posie Parker calls herself a “femalist” sometimes, but eschews feminism. I think it’s important and smart that she does that.

        Much like I don’t like labels. I have positions on issues, and it doesn’t follow a party or a side or a tribe.

        I know a lot of people who are the same.

    • SoftStarLight March 28, 2023 at 3:17 pm #

      Yes, the canine brain has its limitations, as does the human brain to be fair. But it does look like you need a helping hand. What a silly thing to say in a way. Sure, violence may be more of a male thing, but females are certainly capable of violence and have deployed violence. Now, numbers and statistics are a thing but they do certainly exist. Both in the form of phenomena like female serial killers or violent female protestors. I more or less see things in spectrums. Now. The male spectrum incorporates more violence overall of course, and the female spectrum incorporates a larger area of non-violence and nurturing behaviors. These are evolutionary results and purposes. But exclusionary or very divided thinking on these things is going to be the reason you miss things.

        A few years ago I tried riding my bicycle up a steep hill. 300 foot rise 20% grade. I was doing well but halfway up a steeper than most of it section caused me to get nauseous. I stopped riding and started walking up. Bicyclists do not make it up this hill.

        As I am walking a rock hits me in the back. I stop and look around. I see a teen urchin laughing to himself at a split level house about 100 feet down the hill.

        He is I am sure to this day the same asshole. More of an asshole than most men likely. More asshole than I ever was. I have not been into cruel.

        It would be a rare teen girl to be into such a thing.

          When I was a teenager I was walking along, minding my own business, when I felt a pain in my foot. Luckily, I had boots on.

          I turned around and saw about 6 chollos falling over laughing. One had a gun. Don’t ask me what kind, I don’t know. I assume it was not lethal because the bullet didn’t even pierce my boot, although it did leave a bruise on my foot.

          I made the assumption that his asshole buddies bet him that he couldn’t shoot me at that distance (it was far) and when I jumped and turned around they thought it was hilarious.

          Assholes.

    • Jarek March 28, 2023 at 3:19 pm #

      The Tavistock Institute specializes in this kind of confusion. And of course the Langley clowns.

      Thus the election board switched colors. Red is the color of communism so it was given to the Republicans. Blue is a conservative color so it was given to Democrats.

      • GreenAlba March 28, 2023 at 4:30 pm #

        Red used to be the colour for men, blue the colour for women (as in the depictions of the Virgin Mary) and pink (baby red) as the colour for little boys. Until it was turned on its head.

        Red was also the colour of martyrdom – when Mary Queen of Scots ascended the scaffold she threw off her cloak to reveal a crimson dress to show she was a Catholic martyr.

        Colours have meant all sorts of things over the centuries.

        When my husband was a medical forensic examiner (police surgeon) he used to have to give expert witness testimony in court. He says he always wore a red tie, as in courts that means ‘don’t mess with me – I intend to stand my ground’ (paraphrasing).

          Several years back, we had some Polish craftsmen refinishing part of our house here in Germany, and when I showed them the 80-year old tiles I had discovered under 3 layers of other flooring, they balked at the idea of refinishing them as they had a red and white checkerboard pattern.

          Told me they were socialist tiles.

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

            Haha! My husband told me about some housing estate where the residents were extremely peeved because the council painted the railings round a grassy area green (they’re generally black, but occasionally green). Green is the colour for Celtic and Hibernian (Hibs) football teams (Glasgow and Edinburgh respectively), which have Catholic links, while Rangers and Hearts are red/maroon. And this was a ‘red’ area!

            When hubby was forced to change into scrubs at work (normally ridiculous for a GP) during the ‘pandemic’ I bought green, maroon and blue/green ones. One of the drivers was a Hibs supporter so he avoided wearing the maroon ones on the night he knew the guy was driving. I kid you not.

          Among the viking era Norse, religion was considered a female occupation, and was signified by the color blue.

          During the 1980 US selection, red – the color typically associated with socialism, etc. – was taken from the Democrats and given to the Republicans, while blue – conservatism – was given to the Democrats. The excuse, as I heard it: “Red, Reagan, Republican”.

          Tradition supplanted by alliteration (or, “how I feel about things right now…”). Yay! “It is what we say it is.”

          Even then, I recognized a mind-fuck when I saw it.

      Why aren’t you asking the women who post about this stuff on a regular basis? Why would Pucker know anything about TERFS?

      BTW, “Cis” is a slur for woman. It is trannie men’s way of slurring us and reducing us to “one kind” of woman in a slew of possible ways of being a woman, including women with penises.

      You got it right that men – trans and straight and homosexual – make up the TRA movement that attack women. And their handmaids, the women who betray their own sex for social credit (and perhaps to impress men).

      And yes, the trans agenda is more of the same: Male violence towards women. But this time it’s sanctioned by the federal government, most states, all institutions and corporations.

      • Blackbird March 28, 2023 at 6:24 pm #

    My husband reports that NPR today was sympathetic to the rioters in Israel.
    Hmm.
    We got into an argument about whether Israel is having a Color Revolution or not. (This is the kind of thing we argue about, instead of whatever it is that most people argue about).

    Anyway, Alexander Mercouris has some of my suspicions.

    .youtube.com/watch?v=gtNGwSCsEZU

    In other news, Congress may pass an end to the 22 year old AUMF Act that has allowed various presidents to run wild attacking other countries these past 22 years.
    NPR reported that the Senate is more likely to pass it.
    Say what? Why would Democrats pass a law restricting the president’s ability to destroy other countries without any Congressional input?

    I speculate that the US wants to get its troops out of Syria without it looking like they are giving in to a sovereign nation’s demand.
    So they will pass this law and then discover that the troops in Syria have no “legal” basis for being there (they actually never did, but whatever), and then they will announce that in accordance with The Law they are withdrawing the troops.
    They’ll just have to steal the oil a different way.

    Anyway, that is my guess and we did not have an argument about that one, because it sounded reasonable to my husband.

    • Islander March 28, 2023 at 3:21 pm #

      Wow, can you have reasonable interesting discussions with your husband?

      Hats off to both of you!!! (sincere, no snark)

      Re Israel, I opined somewhere around here that maybe, just maybe, the Netanyahu shtick is getting old?

      I am an advocate for Palestinian rights.
      The two-state solution has hit a wall.
      It’s democracy for all, or Israel must fall.

        How is the two state solution (if only the Israelis were sincere about it!) non-Democratic?

        The one state would be a disaster. As the Muslims in Kosovo told the Christians: We will outbreed you. Guess what? They did just that.

        The Orthodox Jews are the future. The future belongs to those who show up for it. And they’re not going to get along with the Muslims, to put it mildly. Or the Muslims with them, obviously.

        So you’re agitating for a future that cannot be. Pretty clever if you are an anti-Semite. But I assume it’s just you being you. Getting it wrong….

            Then there is no answer. Can you deal with that? The one state solution is ridiculous by definition. I won’t argue you here. You may be right that the one state solution is gone. I don’t know. But at least it wasn’t existentially invalid.

        Mercouris, in one of his more delphic modes, seems to be suggesting that the Biden WH might be effing with Israel in order to apply pressure on Israel to get with the Ukraine program (send some weapons and tech).

        And so they might think that, put under enough pressure, Net might be more cooperative with the Ukraine program.

        Or, someone else entirely might be more amenable to getting with the Ukraine program.

            I wonder if the teen trans fad would slow or stop if the peer groups for the new generations would treat them as they are the freaks they are.

            It is a fad! For both sexes. Puberty strikes kids in a range from 8-15 and it is tough for both young and older. Late developing girls for example might wonder if they are going to ever develop and just decide to take an east way out, become the sex they think they are.

            Easy way out, no trans until growth is finished, 21. Let puberty be fully engrained.

            The trannies would freak out with no fresh young meat.

            Adults that support trans in teens are freaks themselves.

          • kbird March 29, 2023 at 12:34 pm #

            Johnaz,
            Being trans doesn’t mean sex change. It can mean that, but many trans just identify as the opposite sex, and socially change, not medically. They dress the opposite sex, change their name, etc….There seems to be confusion, thinking that transgender means they are all transitioning, which is not the case.

          • Paula D March 29, 2023 at 1:16 pm #

            There is no such thing as a “sex change”, period.

            Your sex is determined at conception and every cell in your body is either XX or XY.

            Cutting off a girl’s breasts does not make her a boy.

            Castrating a boy does not make him a girl. Silicone implants do not make him a girl.

            Taking cross-sex hormones does not change sex. Puberty blockers do not change sex, they just stop secondary sex characteristics from developing, as well as brains and bones.
            They also stop a child from future fertility, as well as future sexual pleasure.

            Obviously, changing names and clothing styles do not change sex, and neither does forced pronoun usage.

            The entire agenda is child abuse, as well as turning this society into a deranged version of Clown World.

          • JohnAZ March 29, 2023 at 2:02 pm #

            That is right. Sex is chromosomal. Around each sex, there is a distribution of sex characteristics so that men can be effeminate looking and acting and vice versa for women. But

            Trying to change sex is a joke. Plus, a lot of males are using the trans excuse to enhance sports performance and use the ladies room.

            It is deviant behavior and should not be encouraged. Encouraged? Tolerated but not allowed to be indoctrinated to others, especially kids. When I heard that BoyScouts were allowing gays to be involved, well, that sucks.

          • kbird March 29, 2023 at 2:07 pm #

            Paula,
            Ok, call it whatever you want. I’m in agreement with you. My point is, Transgender does not mean they are all using medicine, surgery etc.. Everyone on here seems to think that everyone who calls themselves transgender is taking medicine and having surgery which isn’t the case. Some do that, but most just change their name, clothing, etc…That’s all, and that is a fact, nothing to argue with.

          • kbird March 29, 2023 at 2:11 pm #

            Johnaz, your homophobia is really on display today. Gay’s in the boy scouts? Good lord!! jesus christ, you do know that gay men like men, not children. Not saying there aren’t gay pedophiles, but the majority of pedophiles are straight white men, and that is a fact. Let’s talk about the fucking catholic priests who molest young boys, what about them John, where’s your outrage? We need to ban your erotic bible, it’s too pornographic.

          • kbird March 29, 2023 at 2:50 pm #

            And John, Do you not know the history of the Boy Scouts and sex abuse???? This was long before allowing gays….Do your homework John. More than 82,000 abuse claims have been filed against the Boy Scouts….it’s as disgusting as the Catholic church, and you support them you deviant.

            I don’t know anyone who thinks that all men flouncing around in dresses demanding tribute and affirmation from all around them, have been castrated.
            They most certainly have not.
            That is why women don’t want them in our sex-segregated spaces.
            And that is why when they put “transwomen” into women’s prisons, some women prisoners end up pregnant.
            And why boys have raped girls in the girl’s bathrooms, when they are allowed in there.
            And why autogynephiliacs have pranced around women’s gyms and domestic shelters with their penises exposed.

            And it is “proven’ that most pedophiles are white men?

            Is that right. No other race has pedophiles? Seriously?

        She has spent a lot of time in White Nationalist circles, at least trying to appear to be one. Though Anglin and others always doubted her sincerity.

        But that’s not to say she doesn’t make some good points, at least in a more conventional context. I’m glad more people are waking up to DeSantis.

        Fascism or Strong Civic Nationalism (think real MAGA or Putin’s Russia) diverges from National Socialism on just this issue: Race. They don’t think it matters. We do. They think you can have the scent without the flower; White Western culture without Whites. We know that you can’t.

        We admit the influence of other cultures, especially the browner Caucasian cultures to the south. Writing from the Levant. Mathematics via the Arabs, with the concept of zero originating in India. Earlier, more basic mathematics may have come from Egypt – but the Greeks then went beyond them, at least in application if not theory.

    It looks like some obscenities of the past have become more acceptable now, so the sheeple arent embarassed by things which used to be perversions.

      Think about the stigma of girls getting pregnant out of wedlock in the 1950s. Special homes were set up to hide them, or they were sent away to their aunt’s place.

      Boy, not any more. Mainstream Black culture has unwed moms being mainstream. All society accepts unwed moms as a normal thing. Single parent kids have two strikes against them, growing up being exposed to a unisexual role model.

      Hollywood and celebrities are the cause of much of the deviancy today. Become a star, make money, buy a big house, get on Kimmel and you are a role model today. So many freaks.

      Democrats jumped on this power source long ago. They champion the freaks, and the freaks vote for them.

        You’re probably also agreeing with the bill the Florida republican’s are close to passing which ban’s young girls from talking about their menstruation. Periods are deviant in your eyes, you’re one of those men who can’t even say the word.. You disgust me.

            What 10 y.o. girl would want to “discuss” with anyone if she got her period?

            It sounds to me as if Florida passed a law saying that teachers did not need to discuss menstruation with children younger than 11 years old and the liberals have twisted it to say that children can’t talk about it, and you have fallen for it.

            I am totally fine with not discussing menstruation with young children.
            As a matter of fact, I didn’t get told about it until 6th grade sex ed and I was quite shocked and horrified.

            Say what? I have another opening I knew nothing about, and it’s going to bleed every month?

            Oh, hell no! What fresh hell is this?

            I did not need to know about that any earlier. But nowadays they are teaching kindergarteners how to masturbate.
            TMI. That’s Too Much Information, for those who don’t know the acronym.
            They are teaching children WAY too much about adult sexuality and perversions in school now.

          • Paula D March 29, 2023 at 7:37 pm #

            kbird, get real. Was there ever a time in school that you felt the need to discuss your period in class? Even after 6th grade?

            Yeah, I thought not.

          • kbird March 29, 2023 at 7:53 pm #

            Paula you really are ignorant.
            A recent study led by Margaret L. Schmitt found that kids need more, not less education about menstruation. “Many adolescent girls in the U.S.A. are under-prepared to navigate puberty and menstrual health comfortably and confidently,” Schmitt and her co-authors wrote. It’s jarring enough to get that first period, even when it’s on your radar. For an uninformed third or fourth grader, it’s not an exaggeration to say it could be terrifying. Seems like a good recipe for creating shame around something completely normal and inevitable.

          • Paula D March 30, 2023 at 11:46 am #

            I am so ignorant because I don’t think little children need to be drilled about “menstrual health”?

            What is “menstrual health” anyway? Can you define it?

            What do “scientists” and ”researchers” say about it?

            How does spending time in a 2nd or 3rd grade class talking about “menstrual health” actually help children?

            And how does incessant sex education that teaches kindergarteners about dildoes, cross-dressing, and anal sex, help children to “navigate puberty comfortably and confidently”?

            Enquiring minds want to know.

            Because to normal people, that sounds like bullshit.

            And you still haven’t told us how much time you spent in class talking about your period, during your school days.
            Why not?

            Isn’t it “healthy” to talk about your menstrual cycle with strangers? Go ahead, bird, do let us all know all about your time of the month, how you feel about it, the intimate details of your flow, and how you navigate it confidently.

            It is essential for us to know, research shows.

Oh ya, you never responded to my response to your blabbering about being an American and how much you love the Pledge…but you are a fake Patriot, a PINO, a Patriot in name only. Read the words of the pledge John, they are all things you disagree strongly with. You did call yourself a 20th century American Patriot, you do know we are in the 21st century? Or maybe you want to bring back slavery and take away all of womens rights, maybe that’s what you meant?? Bigot.

    From Q’s Drafts archive:

    Obama visits Oklahoma

    Our bronze sovereign alighted from the first chopper, glad-handed local pols, touched some scrofulous hayseeds, spoke mellifluously of our collective sorrow to a nation grown weary of the ritual, occasionally puffing gently the facial region below the lower lip and absentmindedly moving his tongue, as though a tiny food particle was present, in a manner suggesting thoughtful search for appropriately somber words, then departed for the next site of natural disaster or senseless multiple murder on the day’s itinerary.

    • Disaffected March 28, 2023 at 7:02 pm #

      New word: scrofulous. Damn hayseeds!

      Not sure Obama would have ever dared set foot in Oklahoma. Credit to the hayseeds: they know a damn shyster when they see one, although I guess they’ve elected a few themselves.

      • messianicdruid March 29, 2023 at 10:24 am #

        Admit it; scrofulous relates to sophisticated much easier than hayseed.

    Humorous incident today in the land of the nuclear glow.

    We had an “all-hands” meeting for our directorate, which is basically a PR fest for the Division Leaders to get up and practice their public speaking skills while bragging on their Divisions, one of which included the Occupational Medicine Group, which had been tasked with administering the vaxxes. I of course tuned in virtually for the festivities from home. The Group Leader had everyone stand for a stretch break, after which she asked everyone to clap for the efforts of her group during the “pandemic.” Gratuitous nonsense, but what the hell, I said to myself at home. The camera panned the audience, and I noticed one guy in particular who remained standing with his arms firmly folded across his torso, appearing quite resolute. Oopsie daisy! Bad PR! I had to admire his effort, but I’m sure he wasn’t the only one in the audience who felt that way.

    The lab has, by the way, given up on their silly vaxx and booster mandates, for the time being at least, but I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of them yet.

    • SoftStarLight March 29, 2023 at 4:18 am #

      What are those all hands meetings all about lol? Such a weird name. Is that a different way of saying all hands on deck? I just realized that a handmaiden is an essential employee and thus pandemic proof. Haha!! Beating you at every turn b*tch. Ok time for bed now 🙂

      • Disaffected March 29, 2023 at 8:05 am #

        Just another name for everyone please show up and listen. “Morale boosters,” or some such. Management’s always big on “disseminating information,” as for most of them, that’s their only job.

        But I think that even that Group leader was smart enough to know that they shot their credibility wad imposing those vaxx mandates, and I know for a fact that they got a whole lot of pushback – although not nearly as much as they should have – for enforcing them. We’ll see how it goes next time, but given the fact that they’re trying desperately to dramatically increase the workforce size up here to meet new mission requirements, they might not have the luxury of being so demanding if half the workforce says “fuck you AND your vaxx!” next time rather than submit.

      • MaryQueen March 29, 2023 at 11:11 am #

        Oh, SSL. You would laugh yourself throughout the day if you spent just one in a modern white-collar company. Or want to cover your ears and eyes, maybe.

        I cringe daily. “All hands” meetings. “Stakeholders” = clients or co-workers. A whole slew of buzzwords and acronyms no one else understands, like their own language. My very favorite are the insulting, kindergarten-level cartoon ‘tutorials’ on stuff like security compliance or covid19 safety measures, with little quizzes at the end. And then don’t even get me started on equity and inclusion “lenses.”

        Companies are like cults now, complete with humiliation rituals (insult to intelligence, forced allegiance).

          Radically different kinds of people CAN live together in the same nation – as long as they take stuff like this seriously, and not actually their own culture and religion. Typically, they’ll change their religion to fit in with the prevailing ethos. Some Orthodox Jews are now accepting homosexuality for example. If Muslims do the same, then it’s a match!

          This is Paula’s big vision. The Coco Cola commercial.

      The Plan
      In the beginning was the Plan.

      And then came the Assumptions.

      And the Assumptions were without form.

      And darkness was upon the face of the Workers.

      And they spoke among themselves, saying, “It is a crock of shit, and it stinketh.”

      And the workers went unto their Supervisors and said, “It is a pail of dung, and none may abide the odour thereof.”

      And the Supervisors went unto their Managers, saying, “It is a container of excrement, and it is very strong, such that none may abide by it.”

      And the Managers went unto their Directors, saying, “It is a vessel of fertiliser, and none may abide its strength.”

      And the Directors spoke amongst themselves, saying one to another, “It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong.”

      And the Directors then went onto the Vice Presidents, saying unto them, “It promotes growth and is very powerful.”

      And the Vice Presidents went unto the President, saying unto him, “This new plan will actively promote the growth and vigour of the company; with powerful effects.”

      And the President looked upon the Plan, and saw that it was good.

      And the Plan became Policy.

      This is How Shit Happens.

    I wish more of the public understood just how absolutely gaslighted we are. This is proof of how the MSM is either complicit in or actually instigating hate and fear in an attempt to start a civil war, or at the very least create huge rifts in our society.

    Yes, they went and did it – officially blamed the Coventry school shootings on conservatives.

    Let us not forget that 2 other mass shootings recently have been committed by trans individuals, which were ignored, but since this one wasn’t ignored, they’ve ramped up their defense – which they’ve turned into an offense, by blaming conservatives for causing the conditions by which they are now being sought out for slaughter.*

    All they have to say is “Hate has consequences.” They use this “defense” against Posie Parker for daring to hold women’s rights events. They use this “defense” to receive more rights than anyone else in society. They use this “defense” to be able to commit crimes ad nauseam and walk away without even being arrested. They use this “defense” to ruin other peoples’ lives. This goes not only for the TRAs but also BLM and Antifa.

    I hope people can wake up to it before it destroys them personally. I’m not sure what exactly we can do to reverse this except showing up in large numbers to protest every single special protection they put in place on behalf of these monsters (and that, thankfully, is happening in various places).

    They are coming for the kids, literally. If they can’t groom and trans them, they will kill them.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/hate-has-consequences-a-viral-statement-pins-blame-of-trans-school-shooter-on-conservatives/ar-AA19crxm

    *The MSM has also, of course, been vilifying conservatives for 7 years, painting them as white supremacists, etc.

      Get your facts straight. I watch the shows that you loathe, CNN, MSNB…and none of them have mentioned conservatives being at fault. The link you provided, which I clicked on is not main stream media, it’s some fringe group, but nice try.

      Stop with your lies, your post above is dripping with lies. You are the one instigating hate and fear. You’ll come back at me with your smug self righteous tone, and I don’t give a shit. You can spout all your nonsense and lies, and that works on this echo chamber, but it doesn’t make it true and factual.

      • Jarek March 29, 2023 at 12:57 pm #

        Tucker showed a clip last night of one talking head, Moran, blaming Christians for preaching hate being the cause of the shooting.

        And NPR, notoriously anti-second amendment, was glowingly describing “rainbow gun clubs” where trannies learn to defend themselves against the haters. They seem to want guns banned for everybody except trannies.

        He had Andy Ngo on as a guest. Ngo described the antifa/tranny connection as one of long standing. In violent actions, statistics show about 20% of the perps to be gender non-binary in one way or another.

          The American left and allied anarcho-leftists are figuring out that they can’t go on their “justice retribution actions” against White America without a strong second amendment.

    • Paula D March 29, 2023 at 1:32 pm #

      In the Texas school shooting 400 cops showed up to stand outside and stop anyone from trying to save the kids, or in the case of the cop whose wife was in the classroom, to stop him from trying to save his wife. There have been other mass shootings in which the cops behaved the same way.

      In the Nashville shooting the cops showed up and killed the shooter right away.

      In most trans crimes the media uses their pronoun of choice, even when it is absurdly obvious that “she” doesn’t fit, like in crimes or rape or child sexual abuse.

      In the Nashville case, they blatantly “misgendered” her, and not just with the pronouns. They called her female!!!

      What is up with this particular crime? It’s not fitting the usual agenda.

    President Potatohead speaking about the shooting in Nashville and calling for more gun laws exact quote:

    “I’m a second amendment guy; I have two shotguns, my sons have shotguns.”

    If Joe’s sons have shotguns one of them is buried with it and if the other asshole son owns a shotgun it would be a felony offense.

    Idiot Geraldo says the Nashville shooter had 7 guns. All legally purchased including a sawed-off shotgun.

    I kinda doubt that this deranged he/she had a sawed-off shotgun legally.
