An Election, If You Can Hold It

The death of the faithless state is as natural and lovely as a melting snowflake…All the broken things will start to be fixed. And all the crazy things will go away, immediately. —another one from Curtis Yarvin

Can our country begin to get its head screwed back on with the midterm election? The cynicism ‘out there’ is monumental. Even if the perfidious Party of Chaos gets thrashed unto near death at the polls, awful pitfalls and frightful quandaries await whatever regime coalesces into a legislative majority of the center and right.

And there remains in place the ghastly figure of “Joe Biden,” the waxwork “president” fronting the coterie of Jacobin crazies still aiming to drag Western Civ into the dumpster of history. One thing a congressional committee might probe posthaste: who exactly has been running the executive branch for two years? My guess would be Barack Obama by way of Susan Rice, Director of the Domestic Policy Council (office in the White House) whose activities are never, ever discussed in the news media. In fact, her mere presence is unacknowledged. I doubt that one-in-a-thousand people in Times Square could tell you who she is and what she does. How many times a day is Ms. Rice on-the-horn with the Gentleman of Kalorama? Are there logs of her calls? Does she use an endless supply of cheap untraceable burner phones? Or does she limo across town regularly to get orders in person?

Is there some penalty for running a shadow government, perhaps something in the sedition or treason folders of federal law? The degree of malign policy coordination throughout Western Civ also suggests that outside actors exert some heavy influence on our affairs. Is Mr. Obama running “Joe Biden” according to a WEF playbook, as appears to be the case with WEFfer implants Justin Trudeau of Canada and Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand? It would help explain how so many measures and actions outside our national interest have played out lately — the Gestapo-ization of the FBI, the overt censorship, the wide-open border, draining the strategic petroleum reserve, the drag queen shindigs, the foolish effort to “weaken” Russia in Ukraine, the climate change hysteria, the fiscal idiocy, and everything about-and-around Covid-19.

Of course, the rule-of-law has become a pitifully squishy thing in our time. Nobody is accountable for anything these days. The federal agencies can act however they like in the way of persecuting their political opponents, or inflicting immense harm on the public — like the CDC, FDA, and other public health agencies insanely pushing deadly mRNA vaccines on the public, despite massive evidence that the shots have killed and disabled hundreds of thousands.  It’s likely that we will see aggressive hearings into all sorts or government misconduct come January, and it is important to determine who did what to drive America so badly off the rails, but that won’t mitigate the pitfalls and quandaries ahead.

There is a re-set underway for sure with every teeter of industrial civilization, but it doesn’t have to resolve on the side of high-tech tyranny and super-centralized global governance by elitist maniacs. In fact, it can’t. The bottlenecks of resources — energy, commodities, metals, all material things — plus the growing scarcity of real capital (as in representations of genuine wealth), guarantee that nothing organized at the gigantic scale will be able to continue — certainly not any global political administration. The WEF is a fantasy factory; all it can really produce is chaos and misery.

Many national governments may not survive the great discontinuities ahead. Everything we do has to get finer, smaller in scale, and more local. Many, maybe most, of our high-tech systems will be crippled by energy shortages and supply line breakdowns. The business models for everything — from the oil industry to commercial aviation to running mega-cities — no longer pencil out. And as economist Herb Stein observed years ago: things that can’t go on, stop.

Every attempt to maintain the status quo of our withering globalist arrangements will be an act of futility, including the wars that our elites seem to be yearning for. If we squander our remaining resources on kinetic conflict, that will only drag out the journey to new arrangements, destroy more lives, and break more things that still have value.

In theory, a new Congress could get rid of both “Joe Biden” and Kamala Harris via established procedure (impeachment) and install the next Speaker of the House as president — but it would require the most extreme degree of bipartisan cooperation imaginable to get convictions in the Senate.

Perhaps “JB” and the Veep could both be induced to resign. It’s certain that the Biden Family’s crimes of global bribery will be laid out in every sordid detail which, on top of his obvious incompetence, would ensure “JB’s” removal. Ms. Harris can answer for the border crisis. She was so lax and mindless in office that she didn’t even bother passing the buck on the responsibility she’d accepted for managing the border. She never even went down there to look around.

If the election actually happens — the cynical doubt it — it’ll be gratifying for sure to see a loathsome cast of characters swept away in the chem-trail of history. But the winners will have to get the country’s head screwed back on to face the tremendous task of making new arrangements for the continuation of daily life under harsh and alarming conditions. Or else the election may be the last thing we do as the country that we were.

    Without question.
    One Barry Soetero is running the show for the globalist democrat party.
    The cuck faction of the democrat party (repubs) are fully aware of this.
    Methinks the cuck faction are tired of this arrangement.

      None IMHO.

      • hortonz October 28, 2022 at 1:01 pm #

        Now that we’re on the subject of crazy, Canada’s own Justin Trudeau keeps upping the ante with each passing day. Forget about the Democrats, Canada’s Liberals are doubling down on insanity with a new handgun ban that’s designed to anger half the population and lead to endless court challenges on the part of lawful gun owners. Of course it’s going to provide lots of work for all those law firms that are politically connected to JT who will argue the government’s case in court. Then there’s the matter of the $6000 a night hotel suite in London that Justin stayed in during the Queen’s funeral. He could have stayed for free at the Canadian embassy like all the previous PM’s but that’s not how we do things in Ottawa anymore. Then he threatens to freeze health care funding to provinces that he deems are too critical of his government’s health care policies all the while promising free dental care to every Canadian who can’t afford a trip to the dentist. Never mind that Canada’s health care system is on the verge of collapse.

        • Woodchuck October 28, 2022 at 2:10 pm #

          About those law firms……..

          When I was a wannabe hippy and a confused college student in the 60’s, we had a language teacher, a man in his senior years who had once been an affluent lawyer in the Balkans before the Russian Commies took it over. Eventually he arrived in the USA and became a citizen. He needed a job and could speak very good English and was fluent in a large number of other languages. So he became a language teacher in a small college. It wasn’t the life he was expecting to have when he was in law school.

          Imagine this situation being reversed. The United States and Canada break up into collections of individual sovereign states and nations. If you were a lawyer in the US or Canada, guess what? Those countries don’t exist anymore and your law degree is shite because the legal systems have changed and you must start over learning a new system in a new state. Not only that, but people everywhere are too broke to pay lawyers very much. But you do know Russian very well. You get on a ship and move to Russia and become a Russian citizen. You’ll enjoy a much higher standard of living than in the West, and there are good jobs available for immigrants teaching English, German, Chinese etc. Lots of German technology and machinery bought at fire sale prices will be in Russia at that time, and technicians will be reverse engineering some of the stuff. They’ll need to know how to translate technical manuals for example.

          Where things are headed, having an MD or a JD might not be very helpful or useful.

          • Paula D October 28, 2022 at 4:54 pm #

            Lawyers and doctors are already licensed by the states in which they live.
            You can’t just go to another state and practice now.

            That dude probably came over on the ratline.

          • Katerina October 29, 2022 at 5:10 am #

            To Woodchuck.

            Another imbecilic comment. ..”before Russian Commies took over”?!. What would it take for you people to get your fucking brains in gear? And then this gem – “will be reverse engineering some of the stuff”?! For God’s sake, how stupid can one be to even spew a shit like that! O boy.. that is why you people are beyond hope.Too fucking ignorant and too fucking stupid! Arseholes, in other words, who do not want to learn. You know it all! And will deserve everything that is coming to you.You are beyond redemption. I feel sorry for those of you who still have functional brains. On this blog, it’s mostly ladies. Sorry girls, you are surrounded by ignorant fuckwits, with only very FEW exceptions. I am bailing out of here as it’s just raises my blood pressure reading this ignorant crap. Good luck to you, ladies. You will need it. : )

            Citizens of the USA are not known for being knowledgeable in subjects like History or Geography. It’s time to correct the record in hopes that it will survive for whatever generations follow.

            In 1492 a family of cattle ranchers bought Texas from Spain in exchange for two horses and a small herd of longhorns. Seemed like a good deal to the Spaniards because they had thoroughly proved that there was no gold in that endless expanse of scrub bush.

            Once oil was discovered centuries later it didn’t seem like such a good deal to the country of Mexico that now had a border with Texas, and they always resented that they had been tricked into selling so cheaply. After a century of low level banditry and cattle rustling a peace accord was signed in 2014 to be guaranteed and administered by powerful countries of Old Europe.

            China had by this time become a Great Power with a voracious appetite for any resources in the world that were not already exhausted. They invested 5.5 billion dollars in a sponsored revolution to overthrow the legitimate leader of Mexico and install a puppet leader favorable to their plans. And openly bragged about it on the world stage. China ignored the peace accords and set about to develop the Mexican Army into the largest and best equipped military in the Western Hemisphere. Starting in 2014 it launched a continual series of artillery and missile attacks upon Texas with the emphasis on targeting civilian areas where English was the spoken language. Over the years 14,000 Gringo Texans were killed.

            Eventually the USA developed a fighting force capable of confronting the Mexican/Chinese army. After all attempts at diplomacy failed they invaded Texas, expelled the occupiers, and declared Texas to be part of the USA just as it had been for centuries past.

            As is often the case with wars. they are triggered by old men trying to assert their fading masculinity who have as a result lapsed into certifiable insanity. They never end until the loser is exterminated because the Old Leaders have no future anyway. So future historian, what was the end result of the first confrontation between equals in the nuclear age? Are you sitting around a campfire far away from the glassified cities of he Armageddon? Or is your country, Argentina, the new Hegemon?

            If History seems familiar, feel free to change names and dates to match 2022 reality.

            Katerina, you’re an arrogant, ignorant schmuck in your own right. Too bad you think you know it all, and feel compelled to judge others for not agreeing with your self-righteous worldview. Your Mommy and Daddy must be glad they squandered a lot of money on your indoctrination by pretentious TA’s (unless you were lucky enough to get into the one course per year taught by a “name” professor). Enjoy your career as a part-time slushie maker and gad seller at the local Stop-N-Rob!

      • megabeth October 28, 2022 at 1:36 pm #

        Famously lazy. It’s well-established that he hates politics, loves oration, and, as president, expected absolutely everybody to say “What color?” whenever he said “Shit!”

        • Jarek October 29, 2022 at 1:00 pm #

          Don’t mistake languor and insouciance for simple laziness. When the male lion charges, think he is slow on his feet and just kidding around.

          Obama was tireless in his destruction of America, and was especially effective with the military. He said openly he would carry on after his two terms were over. And no doubt, he has.

        When BHO did his star turn at the WH a few months ago, he obviously and deliberately ignored JB, who looked like a bewildered sad sack, and snuggled up to Kamala. After 8 years together, I think that BHO and JB have an extreme dislike for each other. Obama didn’t want senile JB to run in the first place and considers him a monumental f**k-up. Maybe cool cat Obama is letting oafish JB sink or swim on his own – problem is JB is taking the whole world down with him.

        • Jarek October 29, 2022 at 1:03 pm #

          He is ignored JB who kept trying to get his attention. Thus JB still adores O. As he has anyone who has real will. He adored Klansmen in his early days. Then Jews. And now Jews and Blacks.

          He is a feckless fool with no real beliefs. A stray dog who follows people who have some reality to them, content be damned.

    • Warren October 28, 2022 at 11:17 am #

            Speaking of fake parentage —

            obamasrealfather.com ;

            It’s not just that the unusual mouth structure of davis and obama are identical, but that obama looks nothing like his Kenyan father-in-name-only, and his Kenyan half brother, Malik.

            And then there is Macron and “wifey”

            Why do we let these identity frauds be presented to us as genuine human beings. How can these liars ever tell us the truth about anything.

          • Paula D October 29, 2022 at 2:44 pm #

            Your second site was blocked, niner, but I saw the first one.

            Obama looks exactly like his CIA grandfather, if you’ve ever seen a picture of him.
            I don’t see that close a resemblance to the other dude.

          • niner October 30, 2022 at 4:45 am #

            Great find on Malia & Sasha’s bio-parents, Paula D.

            i’ve never seen a good close up pix of the CIA grandfather, just group pix.

            After reading all the circumstances of access and birth timing, and comparing the Davis childen with BHO as half siblings, the Davis kids look much more like BHO than does the Kenyan “half-brother” Malik.

            I wonder how soon in BHO’s life did the Rockefeller clan/CIA start grooming him as one of their front men.

            I don’t recall all the details, but same kind of “helping hands” in Bill Clinton’s childhood.

            I wonder who else is out there in public eye, maybe running for office this election, but is a total groomed puppet from childhood.

            There were many stories in the last decade about the CIA nests in Malibu, and up in the canyons, with actors and musician kids.

            That newnationalist site goes through OK for me just now on Firefox.

    To answer your question James, no, an election will only kick the can down the road for a little while longer. It will all continue to decay, degrade, and despair will rule the day for those who are not drugged, drunken, or distracted from the road to perdition that we are racing down. Sorry, but mankind has swallowed the hook and is being reeled in. Only Divine intervention can save us now. Pray.

      It depends on how many lawmakers in the Republican party are ensnared in the WEF’s tentacles.

      Hard to say, but I think the US is one of the only places in the West where the bulk of the leadership has not pledged allegiance to the New Normal.

      Rainer Fuellmich recently said something similar, particularly in regards to the justice system.

        We must have a general strike and, more importantly, a TAX STRIKE. We’re paying for all this treason with our very own treasure, viz lives, so-called money, and any and all forms of capital that’s still useful to the crooks.

          • GreenAlba October 28, 2022 at 3:17 pm #

            Slugoon – there are discussions about subsidising the BBC from taxation. Presumably that means even people without TVs will have to pay for their censorship and disinformation. Apparently so many people have cancelled their licence fee payments that they are feeling the pinch.

          • Slugoon October 29, 2022 at 2:23 pm #

            Alba – I’ve heard that people are leaving in droves and that’s my fear, that they’ll just force funding through the tax system. Who the fuck do they think they are?! Like they have some God-given right to exist because of their reputation from half a century ago. I hope you’re well.

            Every employee can fill out a dependents form and select up 9 or maybe 10 dependents (for ‘purposes of with-holding’) regardless of the actual number, thus dramatically reducing the with-holding. Also don’t be an employee if possible (irs views employees as tax donkeys); be a 1099 contractor or own your own business. Both give you much more leeway to legally avoid excess taxation. Find an accountant who hates the irs (not easy as they are certified by irs).

            Weeks ago someone on this board casually suggested that the 87,000 new IRS agents were actually going to be supervising the rollout of the upcoming CBDC.

            I think that is true.

        Unfortunately, too many Republicans are ensnared.

        I watched part of this hearing, dated 28 Sept, on C-SPAN: Treasury and State Department Officials Testify on Sanctions Against Russia to Senate Foreign Relations Committtee.

        The only difference between some Republican Senators and the rest of the panel (Dem and Republican Senators), is that they were more likely to question how well the sanctions are working.

        They are invested in prolonging this idiotic war and regime change in Russia.

        That is the GOP leadership.

        Further down the food chain, yes, Republicans are far more likely to question the corrupt order of things than the Democrats.

        The Republican leadership, at times, on SOME issues, may question the corrupt order. But behind the scenes they support it because

        1. The GOP leadership has more power this way, and

        2. The GOP leadership uses the situation to generate popular support for the GOP.

        If the corrupt order was to go away, where would that leave the GOP leadership? Out of positions of leadership, replaced by people who want competent, somewhat honest government.

          • SW October 28, 2022 at 11:57 am #

            In every dystopian novel I’ve ever read, the hope for recovery comes from rural areas and people throwing away the technological crutches we’re all leaning on. They learned a few basic skills that used to be taught as part of growing up and are now extinct.

            But I don’t think the US can survive (or any nation for that matter) unless families are at the cornerstone. Who taught these basic skills? Parents, grandparents, extended members of the family.

            No, it won’t be fun or easy — my guess is that it’s going to be impossible. It seems to me the slow, steady decline in competency has accelerated in the past 10 years and the kiss of death for education (such as it was) was the closing of schools.

          • swtNEK October 28, 2022 at 12:30 pm #

            I could use some youngins who would like to learn traditional skills. I have not takers in my family at this point… where can one find such people who want to keep what I have going, into the next generation?

          • MaryQueen October 28, 2022 at 12:36 pm #

            I think a LOT of people have figured out that they had better embrace the basics. I’ve been reading prepper blogs for almost 20 years. Many understand what it takes to be able to live outside the system, or nearly outside of it.

            That’s why the PTB want everyone in ‘smart cities’ and they are building rabbit hutches all over the place now, even in the suburbs… they want to get people out of their homes (where they can have gardens, etc) and into a little stacked box.

            How many people are going to go for that? We’ll see.

            And yes, the willful destruction of community and families has been in the works for decades. The final push to destroy families and deliver kids to the state is via the covid hoax and the trans agenda.

          • SW October 28, 2022 at 1:15 pm #

            MQ — I think the challenge will be to live within the system in some way that supports families and re-establishes communities. Most people (myself included) will never be successful preppers but can scale down to manage their lives within the system.

            Living to scale would be a good start and as far as I can tell, might be the only thing we’ll be able to do as the US becomes poorer, less competent and the “leaders” lead us into one proxy war after another and the cliff to fall over.

            I’m not optimistic when I look at the wrecked educational system and the sell-out government with Biden and Harris as the perfect representations of what went wrong. Two go-along-to-get-along public employees who can barely hide their lack of interest in the problems facing most Americans.

            Prepping is useful for short-term disruptions.

            But if they crash the economy and have enough people begging for debt relief that puts them on digitial currency and/or UBI, then no amount of prepping is going to save anyone.

            A true parallel economy must be developed. Strength is in numbers.

    • Woodchuck October 28, 2022 at 2:41 pm #

      Yes, we’ll be occupying our land again in a manner similar to what I observed as a small child in a small town in Appalachia. I lived in the upscale area of town, but nearby to us was a large community of rednecks and hillbillies who didn’t yet have indoor plumbing. I’d see small groups of them fetching water all the time at a nearby spring. They had running water all right, the sort of water you had to run and git.

      And they all had those Warm Morning brand coal heaters, hooked into a very small masonry chimney. No fireplaces. Along with an outhouse and chickens in the back yard, each home in winter had a coal pile back there. Big softball sized chunks. In winter after a cold spell leaves snow on the ground for a week or so, you’d see the black coal soot settling out on the top layer of snow and ice. There would be a faint coal/sulfur smell in the air. My great grandma had a Victorian style wooden mansion that had an Iron Fireman brand coal furnace in the basement. One entire room in the basement was filled with coal delivered via dump truck.

      Our days of enjoying conventional central heat and air are about over. We won’t be able to afford it. In the New America, coal will be king again and we’ll be burning the stuff just like we did in the 50’s. We’ve still got lots of coal, and that’s what poor folks use. That or firewood. Don’t like it that way? Well, the other option is to freeze to death. Most people won’t choose that option.

      • Mac October 28, 2022 at 5:12 pm #

        I traveled in Eastern Europe before the wall came down. You could smell the coal smoke as soon as you crossed the border. The aroma of poverty.

        Heating with a wood stove is one of life’s pleasures. It’s a pleasure to tend to a wood stove. Even the smell is enjoyable. I think wood smoke smells like home to most people.

        I think firewood is probably less expensive than propane right now. I can probably get through the winter with two cords of wood, at a cost of $400. (I might have to buy more.) Many people can cut all or most of their own firewood. That doesn’t make it free, as a good chainsaw can be expensive, but it makes it pretty darn cheap.

        • MaryQueen October 28, 2022 at 9:07 pm #

            Back in the day, few people in San Francisco had central heat, as it doesn’t get cold enough to justify it. I think most people relied of “oven heat,” if it got a little chilly. I once lived in an apartment in San Diego that had a panel where you could turn on the heat, but I don’t remember much about it because I never used it.

          • Anthea October 29, 2022 at 4:41 am #

            Wood stoves are fairly common here. The wood stove is my main source of heat here. If I didn’t already have one, I’d be looking into getting one. Last summer, there was a period of a couple of months when you couldn’t buy propane because none of the propane companies had any. This was because propane was being exported. My daughter did a pre-buy for $1,200–enough to fill the tank and pre-pay for extra, in case they ran out. It has crossed her mind that she could run out and the propane company might not have any to bring her, even though she already paid for it. Anyway, they plan to get a wood stove, but it’s not in the budget for this year.

          • Paula D October 29, 2022 at 11:22 am #

          Anthea

          If heating with a wood stove is pleasure, what is heating by a coal stove in Poland?

          Well, I guess compared to no heat—.

          • Anthea October 29, 2022 at 8:57 pm #

            My grandparents had a coal stove in the 50s and 60s that was their sole source of heat. I don’t have any particular recollection of a distinctive smell, but I was a kid. My grandparents’ house always smelled funny to me, regardless of the season–probably due to distictive food odors, such as clabber milk.

            Coal is quite a bit more efficient for heating than wood, but they still had to really crank it during the coldest part of the winter, because most old Victorian houses had little or no insulation. (A lot of them still don’t.)

            Much could be done to reduce energy use for heating if we built well insulated houses. E.g., straw-bale houses are great for offering minimal heating and cooling costs. One local guy lives in a straw-bale house with just a tarp for a roof and claims that he can keep the place warm with a little camp stove most of the time–though he also has a small wood stove. I don’t know what his setup is for ceiling insulation–which would be a very big deal with such an arrangement. The place is not unceiled, and I supposed you could lay straw bales on the rafters. Interesting guy with, I think, an engineering background. Some of the stuff he’s come up with is very clever and inventive.

  4. EdD October 28, 2022 at 9:47 am #

    Apparently, the Constitution as it exists today with several amendments, was designed to prevent the kind of shakeup that is needed. Senators, who once served at the pleasure of their state legislature, have become lifetime officeholders answerable to nobody.

    House representatives commit almost all of their efforts to reelection while the party bosses in Congress can bully freshmen and nullify their efforts at change.

    The radical change needed includes total abolishment of federal departments, abolishment of the Fed, and extremely harsh punishment for treacherous holders of public office, both elected and appointed.

    Measures that fall short of what is needed would be like light applications of makeup on a walking corpse. I would hope, though I don’t know, that espionage laws could be applied to any and every member of Congress who engages in any manner with foreign governments.

    Diplomacy, which is the only excuse for engagement with foreign powers, is strictly the purview of the executive. Congress, actually the Senate only, has input on treaties, and no other interaction between congress members is provided in the Constitution for legislators.

    It should be easy to make the case that any member of Congress who travels to a foreign country, or who accepts any sort of emolument from a foreign power, is engaging in espionage.

    The biggest flaw in the US Constitution, IMO, is the absence of a provision for enforcement of grants of power to the members of the branches of the federal government, and the listing of violations of oaths of office and the listing of violations of explicit prohibitions.

    That flaw seems to have been deliberate on the part of the cabal that overthrew the Confederacy described in the Articles of Confederation and replaced that form of government with the current design.

    I don’t really see how any real changes can be made with the current gaggle of thieves and liars that makes up the US Congress in place.

    • JTinMD October 28, 2022 at 10:02 am #

      I hear you, Ed. But, that old US Constitution has something called The Bill of Rights (not actually, but certainly colloquially). In it, right off the top, are the First Amendment and the Second Amendment. They cover everything that happens afterwards. Think about it. They do.

      • Beryl of Oyl October 28, 2022 at 10:48 am #

        Until we rid ourselves of the notion that we can just declare “emergency!” and the Constitution and all of our rights and freedoms become void until such time as our overlords declare the emergency over, those documents are nothing but toilet paper.

        Do you see anyone running against the absolutely stunning abuses of power undertaken under cover of a cold virus?

        • MaryQueen October 28, 2022 at 11:31 am #

          This right here is it. If one can just declare an emergency and all laws are stopped, then there is no rule of law.

          • Islander October 28, 2022 at 3:23 pm #

            Yes.

            “Declare an emergency” is on page 1 in the totalitarians’ playbook.

            Page 2: Round up/silence dissidents.

            Page 3. Normalize “hygiene” as reason for total control/surveillance.

      • EdD October 28, 2022 at 11:03 am #

        In theory, they do. In practice they are ignored. The 2nd amendment absolutely prohibits any legislation which infringes upon the right to keep and bear arms, yet there are numerous federal and state laws which do just that. There are also regulations issued by unelected federal employees which are claimed to have the force of law.

        The 1st amendment is also routinely ignored by every level of government and the only recourse for citizens is to bring lawsuits challenging statutory violations. That hasn’t worked so far.

        • Jarek October 28, 2022 at 1:37 pm #

          Yeah, if you were to walk into a Starbucks openly carrying, the freedom loving normies start to scream. Most women hate guns – though we (and they as part of that we) owe everything to them.

          • benr October 28, 2022 at 2:52 pm #

            There is that broad brush again. Most of the women I know own guns and shoot them or are talking about getting a couple.

          • Jarek October 28, 2022 at 3:10 pm #

            You’re into guns and those are the people you know. An extreme exception to the rule. People make this mistake all the time: “thinking” with anecdotes drawn from skewed personal experience – yes especially women.

            Broad bush? That’s why you need if you’re going to pain a house. Would you bring a little artist brush instead?

            Similarly, one needs to think big when talking about big things. Not getting into the weeds with personal stuff.

            My most leftist female friend is a confirmed 2A supporter, and while she only owns one pistol, she knows how to shoot with rifles.

            Not the only female gun aficionado I know, by a long shot.

          • MaryQueen October 28, 2022 at 9:11 pm #

            Most of the gun owners I know personally are women.

            And they practice at the range, because they take gun ownership seriously.

          • Jarek October 28, 2022 at 11:34 pm #

            Mary makes my point. She knows far more women and is only interested in knowing gay men, generally.

            So from that she concludes that most gun owners are female? I hope not, for her sake.

          • Anthea October 29, 2022 at 9:24 pm #

            Meh. I don’t know any women who hate guns. My daughter tells me that even her lefty female friends are very much opposed to any infrigement of the Second Amendment. That seems to be the one thing that females of both the left and the right agree about.

          • Jarek October 29, 2022 at 9:57 pm #

            Anthea also makes my point. They think their circle of friends and acquaintances is somehow the same as an objective survey.

          • benr October 30, 2022 at 11:46 am #

            @jarek

            Your point is just your opinion nothing more.

            You have had three different people tell you that in their experience you are not only wrong but flat out wrong.

            For that matter in my life, I have met several “men” that were anti-gun does that mean that all men hate guns?

          • Jarek October 30, 2022 at 1:28 pm #

        “They (1st and 2nd) cover…”

        Things have been extensively whittled away. Julian Assange? Or going back for a test case a century ago, Eugene Debs. The many socialists of Debs’ era who were excommunicated from the Land of the Free (to speak their minds?) Whatever happened to James Meeks, obtw?
        rt.com/news/565070-abc-investigative-journalist-disappeared/
        So far the 2nd, for obvious reasons has remained largely intact. But the case of Meeks ought to lead us to understand ‘they’ toil away ceaselessly like teredo shipworms in pursuit of the wrong kind of disarmament, in fact the opposite kind which should yet be a manifestation of our now long-lost ‘Peace Dividend’ from the early 1990s. That said, the erosion of the right to assemble has been cleverly albeit obnoxiously eroded concerning our sacred Congresscritters. Homeland security for…. some.

    Agree with Sir Walter above. It’s gonna have to get a good deal worse yet before it gets better, election or no election. Fortunately – or unfortunately, depending on your POV – things are definitely spiraling out of control rapidly now, so the end game might be in sight. I think 2024 is the target, as that election will almost certainly not happen. There will be much more grave events unfolding by then.

    I believe you are spot on with regards to who is currently running the country. And congresscritters are well aware. I think back to that joint speech that Obomba and Hologram Joe did when, last year? And afterwards the toadies swarmed tightly around Obama and left ol’ Joe wandering around blank-faced and confused. He couldn’t even get Obama’s attention by grabbing his shoulder. Very telling right there. Meanwhile, said toadies were treating Obama like a movie star, had their autograph pens out and everything. They know who’s buttering their bread.

    What a fucking worthless sack of shit liar Biden is:

    One of the successes he touted was falling gas prices, which he claimed have dropped to $3.39 per gallon on average. This, he alleged, was down from over $5 a gallon “when [he] took office.”

    “And because of the action we’ve taken, gas prices are declining. We’re down $1.25 since the peak this summer and there been falling for the last three weeks as well, and adding up real savings for families today. The most common price of gas in America is $3.39, down from over five dollars when I took office,” Biden said.

    According to AAA, the average price for a gallon of gas on Thursday was $3.76. Meanwhile, the cost for gas on Jan. 20, 2021, the day Biden took office, was approximately $2.39.

    Republicans will not have to impeach Biden and Harris. The Democrats will remove the Dynamic Dumbos shortly after the mid-term election losses to control the game. My theory is as follows. First, Harris will be encouraged to step down for some false reason (e.g., to spend more time with her family, become the President of Harvard, etc.). If she refuses to go along, then the Dems will threaten to expose some dirt from earlier in her career coupled with a handsome pay off (e.g., cash plus corporate CEO position). If no new dirt exists or she refuses, then the Clintons will be consulted on how they handled uncooperative people in the past.

    After Harris is replaced with a Democrat candidate capable of being elected President in 2024, Biden will be forced out. The Dems will either 1.) rally his Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment based on his worsening medical condition, 2.) encourage impeachment to occur over his corruption and then vote with Republicans, or 3.) create a significant emotional event for Joe involving Hunter Biden that destroys him with angst.

    After Joe is ejected, the new VP moves up and the Dems backfill with whoever they want (e.g., Gavin Newsome).

    • cowbell81 October 28, 2022 at 10:44 am #

      We shall see, we shall see….My money is on Biden coming down with an “illness” and simply dying while in office. Watch for the National Day of Mourning to follow shortly thereafter, along with all kinds of speeches about how he was the greatest president of our time, comparing him to Lincoln or some such figure.

      • Disaffected October 28, 2022 at 10:53 am #

        Both extremely plausible scenarios. Biden and Harris appear to be nothing more than stooges installed for advancing the dissolution agenda currently in play. After that, they’re going to need a genuinely charismatic and at least semi-competent figure to come in and clean up the mess, which suggests an Obama redux of some sort. Possibly “Big Mike” acting as Barry’s surrogate in the big chair, with Barry always hovering close nearby? I can see it.

        • Walter B October 28, 2022 at 11:04 am #

          And it should be noted that the trend is now established to appoint candidates such as those two clowns and the Mouth of Sauron , Karine Jean-Pierre, dotards like Pelosi, Feinstein and the likes of Fetterwoman who are mindless clods who will parrot whatever it is that they are told to do or say.

          Total control over the talking heads and soon, total control over the masses, what could possibly go wrong?

        • Beryl of Oyl October 28, 2022 at 11:13 am #

          Michelle Obama is gross. People don’t really like her, the MSM just says they do.

          I think they are too smart to come this far and risk it all by having too many people catch on to what they are up to, and perhaps out-vote the election cheating. I think the next candidate won’t be a Democrat at all.

          Remember that in 2016 the presumptive Republican pick was to be a backup in case somehow Hillary managed to lose.

          Unfortunately for them, too many conservative and also just plain patriotic Americans realized that the Bush dynasty was just plain no good.

          Along came Trump, the MSM was all set to take him out in the first round, Megyn Kelly was actually bragging about what she was going to do ahead of time, but instead he knocked the guy they wanted to win, Heb, clean out of the running with one hand tied behind his back.

          No,, they are going to try to keep Trump out, and then back someone with more appeal than Heb ever had, just in case the Democrat fails.

            Yeah Netflix did a series on her and people were freaked out by the vicious smile of the actress. She doesn’t look that much like Michelle, but I think she captured her energy and mannerisms.

            It was as if people couldn’t see it in Michelle but needed a mirror to see it. And of course then denied it…..

          I’ve said for a while to watch Harris. She goes first. The playbook is written, refer to the Spiro Agnew situation. It’s the easiest way. There are 4 sections to the 25th Amendment.

          Having analyzed it in the current setting and written a few short pieces about how it might work, my conclusion is replacing Harris paves the way.

          Section 4 would be a potential nightmare. Too many possibilities and loose ends. Section 2 is not in play, neither is Section 3. Section 1 is the easiest. It also has a history.

        Biden and Lincoln are probably more alike than most schooled but minimally educated people know. Biden has dementia, Lincoln had Bipolar Affective Disorder (with no medication). Biden has done many authoritarian EOs; Lincoln did many tyrannical EOs, e.g. jailing opposing journalists and organizing and enforcing extremely unjust ‘reconstruction’ efforts which were quite racist against European Americans. Perhaps history will show that they had similar ends.

            I have not, but will look it up.

            The Davis quote is from a short essay.

            A statement attributed to him, noted in the essay in the paragraph after the quote, has relevance today.

            There is also a one-line quote:

            ?“If you bring these leaders to trial, it will condemn the North, for by the Constitution, secession is not a rebellion. His [Jefferson Davis] capture was a mistake. His trial will be a greater one. We cannot convict him of treason.” [quoted by Herman S. Frey, in Jefferson Davis, 1977, pp. 69-72]

        Yeah, California’s Napa county DUI convictions can be a real inconvenience. After his drunk driving escapade caused a car crash which injured an innocent driver, Paul Pelosi was sentenced to 5 days in jail, with 2 days credit for the few hours he spent locked up following his arrest.

        Pelosi was locked up at 11:30 PM which counts as 1 day and released the following morning which counts as the 2nd day. And then he received another 3 days credit for good behavior and a little community service. Hopefully, this lack of punishment hasn’t set a precedent for future drunk driving convictions.

      “While not identifying the suspect, San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins called it a ‘horrific attack’ and would be dealt with quickly.” “The investigation is ongoing. As soon as it is complete, we will file charges and seek to prosecute the suspect to the fullest extent of the law.” — CBS News

        But prosecuting may be more difficult.

    The Republicans are running on two brand new issues, which gives them the perfect opportunity to get elected without touching any of the serious, long-term issues which have been destroying the country from within for years now.

    Lee Zeldin gets to be against people getting killed in the streets, and not forcing a dangerous but useless injection on young children.

    In short, he (and the others) get to run on going back to the way things were a couple of years or so ago, and the issues that brought us to where we are today go unexamined, or covered up.

    Evil insane hellbitch Kathy Cuomo actually said to Zeldin, in debate, that she didn’t know why the violent crime surge was such a big deal to him.

    Interesting; now we’re back to bargaining after last week’s angry outburst. This type of vacilating behaviour is typical before depression sets in. That in turn should arrive on que in just a few weeks. Will we experience a quiet quit?

    Anyone who view politics through a party lens is going to be hopelessly blinded to reality. Allegory of the cave indeed. Of course, the observer can’t really be blamed for holding that belief. After all, he was intentionally taught to think/see in that manner.

    Anyway, to understand the true situation, you have to consider the serengetti and the arena of competition over scarce resources. We in the west via various traits and mechanisms including aggression, discipline, determination and IQ have carved out a wonderful, blessed existence.

    It has nothing to do with superficial (political) issues like trans, family, crime, etc. No, the broader picture includes natural resources, commercial trade routes and the banking financial functions that allow the entire system to operate.

    No one, let me repeat, no one is even remotely considering any alteration to this current arrangement. That’s why to understand the future, one only need view large scale challenges to this order.

    We win, nothing changes. We lose, everything changes. Neither of which are effected by elections, desires, wishes and hopes.

    • Beryl of Oyl October 28, 2022 at 11:31 am #

      “The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.”

      ? G. K. Chesterton

      Conservatives quickly assimilate previous mistakes made by Progressives and this become part of the legacy they try to conserve. Thus the two work together. When the Berbers were conquering Spain, Jewish garrisons would then hold and administer the areas just conquered so the Berbers could go on to conquer new areas.

        The lunatic theatre may not be over yet, Hereward. On UKC News today Vanessa Beeley opined that Rishi is just a placeholder and that a general election will be called, in order to get Kier Starmer, who is apparently the person the WEF really wants for the final stages of the agenda. I am losing the will …

        Apparently, Bill Gates had a meeting with Kier Starmer in London the day Rishi was ‘elected’. Just as he had a meeting with Johnson the evening before the UK’s emergency powers Act was extended early in the scam.

        In the meantime, Rishi has got the ball rolling as regards CBDCs and of course we now have the Bank for International Settlements setting up shop in the UK, which rather consolidates our unfortunate position as a geographical centre for networked wickedness.

          Hi, GA. Yes, I’m a Brit but living in Switz because that’s where my wife comes from. However, I do follow the UK news. If I still lived there, I think I’d just turn off the TV, ignore all news and stay in the pub all day. I think the only hope now is some kind of popular uprising. Starmer seems awful.

          • John001 October 29, 2022 at 6:27 am #

            Starmer is also an agent for a small powerful country which you don’t want to offend at all costs. Jeremy Corbyn was deposed for standing up to such interests. See the Al Jazeera documentary.

            Truss too was loyal to a foreign power, I gather. Once you wake up to the situation, which may take decades – or the sheep, never – you can easily read the code.

            Off-topic slightly, Norman Baker’s book 2007 ‘The Strange Death of David Kelly’ is a good read. Kelly was one of the world’s foremost experts on bio-weapons. Does it fit together, or am I reading too much into this?

            N.B. For those who don’t know or remember, Baker was Liberal Democrat MP for Lewes until 2015. Kelly was killed, ahem so sorry ‘committed suicide’, back at the time of the Iraq war, 2003.

          • GreenAlba October 29, 2022 at 8:52 am #

            Well I definitely never believed the Kelly ‘suicide’ – at least there was a lot of popular suspicion about that.

            I think there was more to the recent David Amess ‘islamist’ murder too – I read something at the time about his connections, but haven’t followed it up and I forget the details. Dodgy is the default assumption in Perfidious Albion.

    In the legal world, much law is set by precedent. If this principle can be extended into the quotidian world, then almost surely further attacks on those in power will happen. Next week and after will become more and more interesting. Get ready for a very scary ride, folks.

    This is what the daily SA today reported;

    U.S. EXPEDITIES DELIVERY OF UPGRADED NUKES TO EUROPE: U.S. forces have moved up the delivery date for B61-12 air-dropped nuclear bombs, upgraded with enhanced accuracy, to bases in Europe. Originally slated for European delivery next spring, reports indicate the bombs will now be delivered in December amid growing tensions in Europe. Experts say the move is likely meant to reassure NATO allies. However, some analysts note the deliveries may also be seen as an escalation, further increasing tensions with Russia.

      Nothing more reassuring than having a speed-up on nuclear bomb delivery in the middle of a war.

      Who ordered the Screaming Eagles into Romania for war games. Is this designed to set the Russians off, or just their usual training exercises, LOL?

        There is an interesting analysis of the probable thinking behind the 101 move to Romania by David Sant.

        Sant speculates that this is support unit for a land-based attack of some kind of Odessa.

        But he doubts that it can work.

        This prompted me to take a VERY close look at Google Maps for the area between Tiraspol and Odessa (two traditionally Russian cities, BTW).

        Most of the area is steppe and marshy swamp. There are only two roads and bridges, and both look eminently destructible . . .

        There was a black woman narrating a series of training videos I was watching and it was cringe-worthy. Not necessarily because she was black, as I hear white people doing a lot of these same mispronunciations these days.

        She kept saying “buhhh-ennn” for button, “imporrr-ince” for “importance” and she literally said “lie-barry” for library. I have not yet heard a white person (except 2 year olds) say “lie-barry” or “axed” instead of “asked” yet but I suppose give it time.

        One would think that a professional company would hire someone at least somewhat trained on how to speak to do their videos but sadly no.

            Especially double consonants such as “liBRary.”

            Why is “ax” easier to say than “ask”?
            Just axin’ . . ..

            People complain about Russian, that it is just too hard to pronounce. It does take some effort to learn new double and triple consonants, but it can be learned. It is a physical workout of the sound-producing organs, that’s for sure! Not for the lazy.

            Much worse, IMHO: Six cases, multiple aspects, and lots of other “features.”

            I had Russian in high school and planned to major in Russ in college. But the way it was taught was so mind-numbing that I dropped it. I’m glad I retain enough to appreciate, say, Putin’s beautifully clear and logical speech. With captions I can catch quite a lot on the fly.

    In our State Elections, the main issues appear to be Abortion & ”Trans Rights’. Meanwhile, there is a shortage of #2 Home Heating Oil & Diesel, and natgas prices have more than doubled since last winter. It’s not even mentioned in any debates or ads, except the Dems promising to restrict access to ‘Fossil Fuel’ even further as a way to hasten the ‘Transition to Renewables’. Republican candidates don’t seem to have a response to this nonsense last they be accused of being a ‘Climate Denier.’ Its going to be a long winter in Ct for many people with cold nights & frozen pipes. Gov Lamont is leading in the poles, even after he revealed his income is $52 million per year; he’s never worked a day in his life (his grandfather was JP Morgan partner Corliss Lamont, the Billionaire Bolshevik) which is probably why he walks around with his head stuck up his ass all day.

      If it’s the same Jensen I’m thinking of he was out and about fairly early on having figured out the Covid scam. I’d call that a potential win for Minn.
      Alaska’s infinitely corrupt Rep Gov Mike Dunleavy at least didn’t pull the trigger on mandatory vaxxes or get overly coercive on related matters so I’m debating whether to assist in his re-installation in spite of his 99% otherwise corruption. If I ever vote again.
      As it is re: mandates, etc, his opponents are as squishy as the “Squad.” And SARS-CoV-2’s next iteration is rapidly approaching, imnsho.
      I was surprised how painless it was to skip the primaries after not having missed an election, donating many $, and thousands of hours campaigning since 1972. Having looked at the results of my efforts in all that time I’ve had no choice but to conclude this bit of “life’s work” was the worst investment and expenditure of time I have ever concluded.

        The women, especially, were very happy to get cloth diapers for their infants instead of having to look around for milkweed fluff and that kind of thing.

        Native Americans weren’t stupid, just like Americans are not stupid they prefer French wine to Mogen David plonk.

        My mother liked the hoity-toity quote “I don’t buy clothes. I HAVE clothes.” I have some of her sweaters and she got them in thrift shops. I am not buying any new sweaters, that’s for sure. The old ones are better.

        What I find very annoying and has to change is that so many shoes now have rubber soles, and these soles cannot be replaced nor, really, fixed, when the heels wear down. The leather uppers are still perfectly good. Very wasteful.

      A lot of preppers are deluded if they believe they can survive for years on what they’ve learned or squirreled away in their cellars.

        During the lockdown my friend invited me to a real life meeting of skeptics.
        Two of them were Q people, convinced that the White Hats were going to sweep at any moment and fix things.

        I, of course, was skeptical.
        Afterwards my friend asked me how long it would be after society broke down until it was fixed. Should she prep for 3 days or longer?

        I told her “They will never ‘fix’ us. We are unnecessary people. Most of us make our livings catering to other unnecessary people. They have no reason to come in here and make life pleasant for a few hundred thousand people who do nothing for them.
        If anyone makes it better it will be the men who make life good now. The men who provide the water and the electricity and the food.”
        I still believe that. Most of us are useless eaters to our ruling overlords, but there are everyday workers out there used to making sure that shit works.

    A take on the Musk ‘takeover’ of Twitter. Looks like it’s one big psyop (funny as it has been to watch, esp. with the crybully liberals):

    https://2ndsmartestguyintheworld.substack.com/p/elon-musk-officially-takes-over-twitter

    • Rain Waters October 28, 2022 at 1:24 pm #

      Musk = psyop . . .duh. . .

    • Wizard of the Saddle October 28, 2022 at 1:33 pm #

      Cuts in every direction. No guarantee anyone will like what Musk does with Twitter, but what I do like is that he just snatched the world’s biggest propaganda spreading megaphone out of the hands of the evil DNC / WEF cabal – leaving then with gaping mouths and stunned looks on their faces – right before they all either burst into tears or ran out into the streets to dash about in circles with their collective hair on fire.

      That he did this to them eithin a fortnight of the mid-term elections is simply GOLDEN.

      GREAT entertainment. more popcorn ?, please!

      • MaryQueen October 28, 2022 at 2:05 pm #

        Hmmm. Maybe you should read the article. He’s a con man.

        • Night Owl October 28, 2022 at 5:19 pm #

          Jason Bermas says the same, and has provided quite a few receipts.

          That said, I remain unsure. He has an agenda of some sort, but I am not sure how anyone could be certain of what that is at this point.

          • MaryQueen October 28, 2022 at 8:45 pm #

            I just look at the history of the person, and who they hang around, and who has put them where they are.

    • Beryl of Oyl October 28, 2022 at 1:34 pm #

      I’ve seen him described as a “lovable con man”.

      Maybe it’s the dimples.

      • MaryQueen October 28, 2022 at 2:06 pm #

        At LEAST give us lovable con men. Un-lovable con men are really just insult to injury – lol.

        Well, I find Musk’s appearance to be repulsive but I have seen women swooning over him.

        • Beryl of Oyl October 28, 2022 at 2:29 pm #

          “Jack”, Elon’s pal, isn’t lovable. The fact that they are so close and Jack is a big fat liar is the main reason I don’t trust Elon’s motives; but hey, it isn’t as if I can do anything about it one way or another.

          • Rowdypiglet October 28, 2022 at 3:33 pm #

            I’ve mentioned before that he has a trickster aura about him. I don’t think they entirely control him, and that sort of personality is unpredictable. Sometimes the unpredictability is useful and brings about something good, though that wasn’t the intention. He likes to stir the pot and see what happens. I’m enjoying seeing the Twitter pot stirred and, at least, seeing the gloating censors being ushered out of the building. Whether things will ultimately be any better I doubt.

      The funny thing is that, from a purely business point of view, there is probably a vast market out there for a Twitter 2.0 that has no censorship or Woke crap. Billions of people are sick of all that garbage. If Musk plays a straight bat, he could be coining it while Fuckerberg goes under.

      • MaryQueen October 29, 2022 at 9:33 pm #

        Twitter’s job is to suck up all the info that FB didn’t get.

    • Islander October 28, 2022 at 5:57 pm #

      I am not so sure.
      I have never been a Twitter user, so, peanut gallery.

      Here is what Alex Berenson has to say about this. Definitely not peanut gallery:
      ++++++++++

      “What will Twitter look like after the world’s richest man finishes buying it?

      Very different. Very quickly.

      And better.

      Elon’s Musk takeover should close tomorrow. (It was always going to close; he was never going to walk away.)

      Then Musk will have a hot mess on his hands. Twitter is awful, and getting worse by the day under current management.

      The little bird is a uniquely important property, as Musk knows. When it is working, it is the world’s most important forum for journalism – and for debate. It is a no-holds barred public square where elite gatekeepers cannot stop reporting and research from being presented and judged on their own merits.

      It is the world’s largest open journal, the ultimate peer-review site. Because on Twitter anyone and everyone can speak, and ideas are judged very quickly and rise or fall on their own merits.

      When it is working.

      It’s not working now.

      I joined Twitter in 2009, but I only learned its power in March 2020, after I became publicly skeptical Covid was as dangerous as the media had claimed. In a matter of days, my views became known worldwide – because of the platform Twitter offered me.

      Here’s one small but very telling example, from a May book called The Herd, about Sweden’s decision not to lockdown:

      On 25 March [2020], Neil Ferguson testified before the Science and Technology Committee in the UK parliament. Among other things, he said that the British healthcare apparatus would be able to weather the storm of COVID patients, and that the death toll would come in below 20,000 people.

      The magazine New Scientist ran a commentary on his testimony, which was subsequently quoted in a Twitter thread by the journalist and lockdown-sceptic Alex Berenson.

      That thread, in turn, was pasted into an email… to both Johan Giesecke [Sweden’s former chief epidemiologist] and Anders Tegnell [at the time Sweden’s chief epidemiologst]. The subject line read: ‘Ferguson makes a U-turn?’

      ‘Interesting!’ Giesecke replied.

      (Without going into too much backstory, if you’ve read PANDEMIA, you know that Neil Ferguson, aka Professor Pecker, helped force mass lockdowns by putting out terrifying predictions about Covid deaths – and then walked them back within days after the lockdowns began.)

      I feel safe in writing that Sweden’s chief epidemiologist would have had no idea about my views on Ferguson’s testimony if not for Twitter. He probably never would have seen Ferguson’s testimony at all, because it received very little attention outside of British newspapers before I highlighted it.

      Twitter matters.

      And that’s why the gatekeepers on the left have worked so hard to censor it.

      Yes, even at its best, even when it works, Twitter has many drawbacks.

      Like all social media, it’s addictive. Its format drives pointless fights and intemperate responses. And even if you learn to avoid those – and I have – it’s often frustrating.

      But what people ON BOTH SIDES seem to have forgotten is that Twitter is frustrating because it works. It’s frustrating for everyone because whoever you are and whatever you think, the world is filled with people who don’t agree.

      We forget this fact, because in real life, we don’t see people who disagree with us every minute of every day. And if we do, we don’t go out of our way to antagonize them by saying so unprovoked. Even politely. Doing so is bad manners (and potentially dangerous).

      But on Twitter, we do. Twitter is MEANT to allow its users to offer their views, politely or not, to everyone – stranger or friend.

      So, as a Twitter user, I go out and make my (hopefully) thoughtfully considered, well-researched points to the world. And some people agree. Good for me! But lots of others respond in ways making me realize they’ve entirely missed my point. Or “strawman” me by responding to an argument I haven’t made. Or just shout back, GRIFTER! Or worse.

      What I learned in 2020 is that the correct response to any or all of these provocations is who cares? I am trying to offer information to the world – to persuade the persuadable by presenting new (or new-to-them) facts and data. I am also trying to remind the people who may already agree with me of why they agree, to buttress them. As for everyone else… some men you just can’t reach.

      Those drawbacks are real.

      But they don’t make Twitter less important.

      What has made Twitter less important in the last two years is, paradoxically enough, its own success in disseminating views outside the elite consensus to the world – most particularly about the proper way to handle Covid, the origins of Covid, and the mRNA vaccines.

      These are issues on which the elite consensus formed and hardened VERY quickly in 2020 (why is a question for another day). They are issues of great import. And they are issues where a few dissenting voices to stand against the consensus in meaningful ways – thanks to Twitter and a tiny handful of other outlets – most notably Tucker Carlson and Joe Rogan, who could amplify their voices.

      And the elites HATED being contradicted. About masks, about lab leaks, about lockdowns and school closures, and most of all about vaccines. They immediately set out to “cancel” – to silence – the dissenters.

      Carlson and Rogan proved too powerful (and profitable) to be canceled, despite repeated and well-coordinated attempts to do so.

      But the Twitter dissenters were another matter. They – we – did not generate tens or hundreds of millions of dollars in advertising revenue. We were vulnerable. And so Twitter steadily tightened its rules against us, trying to force us into self-censorship and when those efforts failed openly removing us (and thus forcing those who remained into self-censorship).

      The result has been terrible – not just for those of us who were censored but for Twitter itself. Twitter has plenty of video, but its efforts to compete with video social media sites have basically failed.

      The core of Twitter remains messaging, the written word. Its advantage, its differentiation, came from its philosophical commitment to free speech – to being a site where people could report and debate on complex topics without censorship or even too much algorithmic involvement, where ideas could rise and fall on their own.

      In other words, in losing its commitment to free speech, Twitter began to destroy its business model. A public square where huge numbers of the public are not allowed to speak freely will ultimately hollow out and die. And in the last two years, Twitter was on its way to becoming a leftist monoculture, Truth Social in reverse, protected only by its first-mover advantage.

      Now Elon is about to return Twitter to its roots as a First Amendment haven. That doesn’t mean no censorship. Twitter must have censorship – of child pornography, of specific incitements to violence, of doxxing and harassment and the kinds of speech the First Amendment doesn’t allow online.

      But I would expect that many of the “guidelines” and the strike policies around Covid and other topics of political and cultural importance will vanish quickly. And I would hope that those of us who are currently being censored WILL BE ALLOWED ON TO OFFER OUR VIEWS.

      (That includes me: for almost three weeks I have been banned from tweeting, because Twitter’s censors found this tweet offensive:)

      I could have fought Twitter over this. But I decided I would hold off. Not just because my lawyers and I have to focus on the Pfizer/White House suit, but because I WANT Elon to put me back on along with the rest of the silenced.

      Let us speak.

      Right or wrong. True or false. (Not because I plan to write any lies, my tweets are the truth and factually accurate to the best of my abilities, but because we have learned in the last two years that the censors will deem provably truthful information to be a lie when it suits them.)

      Let the world debate. Let the world decide.

      The remedy for speech – bad, good, or indifferent – is more speech.

      Always.
      +++++++++++++

      I read that Musk has already fired a bunch of higher-up and lower-downs who were responsible for canceling decisions.

    Nothing is more loathsome to Americans than a sitting President who lacks ‘vigor’. That’s what you have right now. It should have been obvious in the run up to his election, but all the Russiaphobia shows and other shell games distracted the electorate. But now he has to go because he is sinking the Democrats goodwill like a donkey caught in quicksand. The easy solution: just ‘out’ his mental incapacity by medical professionals. He will be declared unfit and must be removed from office. No stain on the players behind the scenes who have been pulling the levers, and only two years left until Michelle steps into the batters box. No hand wringing or apology necessary as he and his family will have been handsomely rewarded via grift.

    This is true, if anything can be known about the immediate future:

    Or else the election may be the last thing we do as the country that we were.

    We are coming up to the formal discontinuity (black swan) in most of our institutional and political behaviors.

    And I’m sorry to say that in the middle of such a calamitous and broken mess, only a very strong leadership with martial power, will be able to withstand its own inevitable mistakes. Any captain will regularly fail in the face of these storms. But serial mutinies are more likely worse outcomes. At the best we will luck out with a Pres. Andrew Jackson, at the worst with a Pres. Stalin.

    At the bottom of the mess is that our unit of account is money.

    Other civilizations used loyalty and love of dynastic blood lines or revealed religions as their standard of good value.

    But money as the unit of account is simply a dishonorable fraud.

    Furthermore, the transnational immanence of the global corporation as the power holding form of government, is a satanic perversion, as they exist in the digital winds.

    Higher human culture is based on territory, on specific pieces of earth places where we birth and raise our children. And we have tried to forget that. Especially, now with the insidious digital matrix growing around us, even in our homes.

    And this mess is breaking, as Mr. Kunstler says, and new values must come first before we can find something that will sustain us.

      How convenient that Mr. DePape subscribed to every single ‘conspiracy theory’ they want condemned:

      “An online blog named frenlyfrens.com was started in August of this year by a person with the screen name DavidDepape, which featured a number of disturbing conspiracy-led posts and rants.

      Headings on the blog included Climate Hysteria, Covid, Immigrants, Pedo Gate and Communism.

      Various news sites published that Depape had posted conspiracy theories on Facebook and YouTube falsely claiming COVID vaccines were deadly and the 2020 election was stolen.”

      • Night Owl October 28, 2022 at 5:26 pm #

        Why did they not include flat earth? That is usually included when the NPCs are too insecure about the other conspiracies actually being true.

        You always need to include at least one really wacky theory, the one that no one could possibly believe in, when attempting to shame your enemy for speaking truths.

        • MaryQueen October 28, 2022 at 5:49 pm #

          • Night Owl October 28, 2022 at 6:27 pm #

            No, I mean that when attempting to discredit “conspiracy theorists,” when the list of all the “crazy” stuff they believe in is presented, there is usually a series of quite reasonable conspiriaces alongside one or two really off-the-wall items that no one believes in.

            The tactic amounts to: “Ha ha, I said flat earth in context with these other reasonable ideas, which means that those ideas are as ridiculous as flat earth! You are crazy”

            Low-IQ stuff, of course, but a standard tactic.

            So where is flat earth?

    “Can our country begin to get its head screwed back on with the midterm election? The cynicism ‘out there’ is monumental.”

    In olden Times, it was common practice for one ‘nation’ or tribe to just go over the hill and pillage and take over another. (And as The Indispensable Nation has regularly shown… this bully process of inter-nation relations has not completely gone away).

    But it is also common for the rot of one’s National soul to come from within. The core Nation’s core (soul) rots out and takes the rest of the now bad national fruit with it. (As has been occurring with regularity also in Indispensable Nation. Not being taken over by those Evil Others… but transformed and rot-i-fied from the rot within).

    Restoration similarly does not often come from ‘Without’ one’s borders. If there is to be restoration this must also come from within. The problem: How do you fix a Nation with a rotten soul?

    Not the entire Nation, of course. But enough of it to so change the spirit and texture and way-of-Life of a Nation that it becomes unrecognizable and a far distance from the principles and practices that it has long purported to represent.

    Yes, the restoration process must come from within. But how? When the rot is so deep and the stench is so bad and the horizon looks so bleak.

    But that’s just it. What are the alternatives? Give up and let the Rot win? Or, do what you can to make things even just a little bit better?

    What can we do? It starts from within us as well. We cannot allow rot to enter our thoughts and deeds and interactions with others. We must first clean up our own act before we can take on the monumental task of trying to save a Nation.

    But does the Nation even want to be saved? When much of the Nation longs for the perpetual Mommy-and-Daddy-State of Build Back Better and We Will Take Care Of You And You Will Give Us Everything And Like It – Or Else, Suckah…

    The fate of the Nation is being decided behind closed doors in small well-hidden and defended rooms populated by self-appointed gods who want to rule over all things for eternity.

    But the fate of the Nation is also being decided within families and groups of people and more fundamentally within each one of our hearts and spirits. What do we want any more? What are our goals for the future? What kind of personal character do we display in our lives? What kind of place do want generations yet unborn to live in? Just like those who came before us, we have a sacred duty to provide a living space and a Country worth living in for all those who will come along later who are depending on us right now.

    Are we up to this challenge? We better be. Because the alternative is too terrible and hideous to think about.

    And the smell is getting really, really bad.

    How much bs to the expect us to swallow? A “wellness check”.

    “The 42-year-old is believed to have entered the Pelosi home through its rear and shouted “Where’s Nancy?” looking for the Democratic speaker of the House, who was in Washington, DC, at the time.

    San Francisco Police Chief William “Bill” Scott said at a press conference officers were dispatched to the Pelosi residence at 2:27 a.m. Friday regarding a wellbeing check.

    He said they encountered the suspect and Paul, who both appeared to be holding a hammer.

    The suspect then “pulled the hammer away from Paul and violently attacked him with it,” Scott said.”

        Last week I noted the incident in LA where a “Houseless Resident”, aka a ‘Vagrant’, assaulted a young woman on an LA street who had been in the city for only 3 weeks — snuk up on her from behind & plunged landscaping shears into her head — and she was seen desparately running down the sunny LA street with the shears still sticking out of her skull.

      Further thoughts:

      There is no way the perp was a Trump supporter, as much as the media would like to paint him as such. No Trump supporter would be caught dead (or alive) in the confines of the 7×7 city (San Francisco).

      Note to Nancy: This is what you get when crazy homeless are allowed to overtake your city. This is what you get when you get rid of police. This is what you get when you provide free drugs and needles to habitual users. This is what you get when you shut down all the asylums.

      Can’t feel too bad about it. Nancy doesn’t give a lick about me as a human being, why should I care about her worthless old moneybags of a husband?

      • Islander October 28, 2022 at 6:07 pm #

        “Can’t feel too bad about it. ”

          It just came out that she invited personal camera crew into her office shortly before the Jan. 6 hoax kicked off.

    • Paula D October 28, 2022 at 3:02 pm #

      They both had hammers? But the perp had to use Pelosi’s?

      That don’t sound right.

      • cowbell81 October 28, 2022 at 3:05 pm #

        I thought that sounded weird too. What was Pelosi doing with a hammer at 2:30 in the morning? Is this the weapon of choice that he keeps in his bedside table? Most likely, since I am sure he is completely anti-gun.

        • Beryl of Oyl October 28, 2022 at 3:20 pm #

          Who does a wellness check at that hour? Did Nancy call the cops to see whether her husband was fighting over a hammer with a stranger in the middle of the night?

          • Rowdypiglet October 28, 2022 at 3:45 pm #

            Hard to imagine that there would be no staff in the house. Wellness check by the police? Nothing about this makes sense. We have a security system in our house. If anyone enters the house once turned on, it immediately begins shouting “get out get out get out” and calls the police and fire. The voice is so loud that neighbors can hear it at the other end of town. If you were upstairs, which I suspect you’d be in the middle of the night, you’d know immediately that someone was in the house and could hide in the bathroom and lock the door.

          • cowbell81 October 28, 2022 at 3:58 pm #

            Nancy probably has cameras all over the house, being live streamed to her phone so she can constantly spy on Paul. Hence her excuse for a “wellness check”.

          • Paula D October 28, 2022 at 5:30 pm #

            That is very odd.

            And the police usually knock for a wellness check, don’t they?

            How did they get into the house and find the hammer-wielding men?
            And did the assault start after the cops were there? That’s what it sounds like.

          • Islander October 28, 2022 at 6:08 pm #

            Police will do a wellness check only if someone calls in and asks them to go to the home of an elder or maybe minor.

            So, was there such a call?

          • elysianfield October 28, 2022 at 6:18 pm #

        Poor writing. I assume Paul grabbed the assailant’s hammer and tried to wrest it away from him, perhaps.

    • Anthea October 29, 2022 at 3:20 am #

      There are many rather obvious questions about this whole scenario.

      First, one would think that the Pelosi residence would have security personnel–probably military guys posted there at government expense. The “wellness check” was probably in response to the alarm system, maybe due to the broken window. Where is the security camera footage showing how the guy got in? Everyone has security cameras these days.

      How does a guy in his underrwear get past security? Is security accustomed to letting guys in their underwear enter the Pelosi residence? Or did he arrive fully clothed, was allowed to enter on Paul Pelosi’s say-so, and disrobed after he got there? Why were both men wearing nothing but their underwear? Why did both men have hammers? Do the Pelosis keep hammers on their night stands?

      The glass of the broken window is scattered around the exterior of the house, indicating that the window was broken from inside the house. Was it broken because the guy was trying to get out? Did someone break it to set off the alarm system? Who? (If you were a security guy and you did not want to try to defuse a “situation”–lest you lose your job by going against Paul’s orders–you might break a window to summon the cops.)

      There are several scenarios that would explain all this–one of which is that the whole thing was (poorly) staged. Another is that Paul Pelosi often entertains sketchy people, and security has their orders about this. There are lots more possibilities.

      • Paula D October 29, 2022 at 11:53 am #

          A commenter on tickerforum posted, “The police audio is available. A male RP from 2640 Broadway called the popo and said there is a male in the house but his name is David and is a friend.”

          I have no idea what RP stands for, but presumably this was the call that initiated the police “wellness check” on Paul.

      • MaryQueen October 29, 2022 at 9:39 pm #

        This is probably the best obit we will read about him:


        Lewis embodied pinched obduracy, brooding, malevolent ignorance, violent unreliability and borderline madness. He abused women, played with guns and shot at men; he drove the highways of the south blind drunk with his loaded pistol on the dashboard. Yet in the vivid contrast between the meanness of the man and the grandeur of the artist, the common denominators were his phenomenal energy and admirable, all-conquering self-belief.

        He will be remembered for his lifetime of hillbilly delirium, but he will be renowned for his seizure of the musical moment at the dawn of rock’n’roll, when an incomparable talent was his intoxicant and ours: when he shot up the old order and played out his defiant dramas on the keyboard, in the studio and on the stage.

        He was an artist, true to his fire.

            It occurs to me that the entire Rock & Roll genre is pretty much dead, and not just because Jerry Lee Lewis bit the dust. It seems like after about 7 decades its ran its course, there is no reviving it. Driving in my truck I turn on the radio and I hear Led Zeppelin, Journey & Kansas from 45 years ago. There is nothing new worthwhile to spin, its the end.

            you know Night Owl, that may be true.

            after we look at the “directed” direction the movies have taken towards ever greater degeneracy and wicked themes, we could wonder if the TPTB decided rock’n roll had too much freedom and exuberance.

            and that was not the direction they wanted us to go in.

            RnR was part of the take-down of tradition, but when that was accomplished they needed the darker sounds of metal and rap and grunge, etc.

            i don’t listen to the current stuff, but when i catch a tune, it seems whiny and weak.

          For once, the Guardian says something that makes some sense. I don’t believe for a moment that he could have made the music he did if he’d been a different kind of person than he was. There’s a lesson in there but there’s no need to elaborate.

          This may be an apocryphal story, but I read once that Little Richard had invited him to be his house guest for the weekend. When asked afterwards what it was like, he replied that it was fun having him but he didn’t sleep more than a couple hours and, if you were thinking of inviting him, you should “first, lock up your liquor and your women.”

    I doubt the brain surgery that Paul Pelosi receives will solve much of anything. Should be doing this on Biden instead. Actually, Biden already probably had a couple frontal lobotomies. That is why he walks around with the dazed look on his face, mumbles words, shakes hands with the air, and asks if dead people are in the audience.

    It truly would be a blessing if humans could definitively eschew the ludicrous – and sometimes outright dangerous – delusions about making the world – and, by extension and sheer hubris, the Universe – a “better” place, because:
    a) The many agonistical views on what “better place” means and how to get there recurrently end up in tragic and widespread disputes.
    b) No one can improve an already perfect thing.

    Having said that, I grok this is only wishful thinking, because humans are not here to improve an iota, but simply to be what everything else is: an agent of change, a figment of The Everlasting Dissatisfaction.

I thank God every day I didn’t end up in one of these Urban American Sh#tholes, trapped like a rat with no way out. Pelosi probably thought he was safe, protected by his wealth, above it all. Well, they got to him too. Garcetti, Newsom, Pelosi, Breed and the rest of them have no problem with thousands of stinking vagrants living on the street; after all, it doesn’t affect them personally — or so they thought. It’s about time they feel the weight of of the policies they push on the rest of us, which is why I was so pleased when Gov DeSantis shipped the illegals to Martha’s Vineyard, even tho part of my family came from there.

    Maybe the Pelosi attacker is seeking vengeance for the death Paul caused to his brother years ago?

    Nancy Pelosi’s husband killed his older brother when he flipped his sports car in California — 65 years before he was arrested over the weekend and charged with drunk driving, newspaper clippings show.

    Paul Pelosi was 16 when he crashed his car near San Mateo in the early hours of Feb. 22, 1957, the Daily Mail reported, citing a local news report from the time.

    His brother, David Pelosi, 19, was likely strangled by a neck brace he had been wearing due to a previous neck fracture, according to the San Francisco Examiner report.

    “The car veered across the road, bounced back from a small embankment, climbed 20 feet up another, spun around and somersaulted simultaneously and ended upside down on the shoulder with both youths underneath,” the local report said.

    Paul’s older brother was pronounced dead after he arrived at Mills Memorial Hospital in San Mateo.

    The brothers had been out on a “joyride” at the time after Paul had picked up David from a girlfriend’s house, according to the report.

    The patrolman said he planned to cite Paul for misdemeanor manslaughter, but the case never made it to court and the then-teen was exonerated by a coroner’s jury.

        Flipping a car isn’t just from stupidity, or speeding when drunk.

        My oldest brother died at 22 in 1970 when, as a passenger, the car he was in flipped on a soft highway shoulder when the driver fell asleep. (They were driving all night and day to make the town where my brother was to begin his teaching career.)

        No mandatory seat belts back then, and, like many cars, that one didn’t have them in the back seat.

        Drunk driving deaths have gone down because of increased penalties, but text driving is insane, and has passed it. Another under-reported issue: quasi-suicide (and, often, collateral manslaughter) based on subconscious or conscious carelessness because of increased depression re the jabs and general economic destruction.

        The wife was a hard-rock Nazarene. I would often ask here if their song book listed “Wreck of the Highway”…then suggest that she speak to her Pastor regarding its addition. She was never amused.

        It is about sin, and redemption through prayer…or something.

        • Disaffected October 28, 2022 at 9:23 pm #

          Nazarene you say? My folks on my mom’s side were all washed in the blood Nazarene’s. Always respected their disciplined ideology, if not their decidedly flawed living up to those ideals.

          What can you say? Growing up on the great midwestern prairie in the first half of the 20th century was not for the faint of heart. I might well have succumbed to that kind of thing back then too, even as I thoroughly rejected it in my rebellious teenage year so shortly thereafter.

          I’ve always thought this film set the perfect pitch and tone for that era:

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Assassination_of_Jesse_James_by_the_Coward_Robert_Ford

          I’ve watched it more times than I can recount on that basis alone. I can smell the musky dustiness of those farmhouses on the prairie that I had the privilege of exploring with my young cousins as a youngster during my growing up even now.

            The showing up for a rally and wandering into government buildings IS NOT TREASON at best it’s trespass and a side of vandalism.
            This entire Jan 6 kabuki theatre is a freaking joke made for teevee soap opera nothing more.
            After several hundred real riots called mostly peaceful, they then flip the script calling the actual mostly peaceful demonstration a riot is a clown world event that can’t be topped.
            What building was burned down?
            They murdered Ashley Babbit and look no one was punished for it in fact they could not care less that a white female veteran was gunned down for no reason.

        My guess is that if the West returns to 19th century living conditions that their will be a “female tsunami” of hysteria and psychological breakdowns. Many females, upon discovering that they are living under what they consider extremely brutal and horrifying conditions – well – they’ll try to correct things as a child does by having loud tantrums and breakdowns. Stuff like laying down on floors and banging their heads and screaming. A female tsunami of regression into child like behavior, thinking that enough noise might bring the good life back. Or make men out of all the delusional little boys they raised.

        But those that survive will grow up fast and learn that life has always been very painful and uncomfortable. Humans for countless centuries have struggled against predators and insects that destroy livestock and crops. They struggled against disease, invasions, famine, poverty, etc. etc. Life hurts, and if you can’t handle the pain of it all, then maybe not being born in the first place was the best option. If you believe in reincarnation, then maybe everyone on the other side needs to think very hard before jumping back into the game going on here. There’s simply not enough room for everyone.

          Women adapt pretty easily to difficult conditions and unexpected demands. A woman will replace the battery in the car if she has to, or do the wash in the bathtub if she doesn’t have enough money to go to the laundromat. A man will most like decide not to do the wash and just wear dirty clothes. And if he has to care for a kid he’ll have a meltdown–or, more likely, just not care for the kid. The way men handle difficult jobs is to assume the women will do them.

        Stealing the election was done to dial up the madness, along with the 2 months of useless election hearings and luring outraged citizens into the Capital on Jan. 6th

        They need to keep us at each others throats.

        The Dems will be happy to give the Congressional majority to the Republicans, while the nation sails blindly through a shit sorm of its own making.

          Massive farmer protests continue in the Netherlands. WEF-puppet PM Rutte trying to force some half of Dutch farmers off of their land.

          “COP 27 – The farmers were right. COP27 will preach a 50% cut in meat is required to stop climate change.

          This will impoverish millions globally, whilst making processed food corporations & their investors billions.

          For the fraud of Net Zero. Focus ”

      Running an interesting website/blog that gets shared on a lot of other big sites like Lew Rockwell isn’t what people with dementia do. On the other hand, people who write short, meaningless, and sometimes off topic comments might well have early dementia. Let’s see how you do writing long paragraphs on complex topics. You up for it TC?

    I’ve been informed that most things in the world are fine. Economy humming along pretty well when leftists don’t screw it up. Energy outlook is pretty good—in fact, since human ingenuity is ALWAYS at play, you could say the energy outlook for civilization has never been better—because that’s simply the standard state of things. We have fossil fuels aplenty to power us right up to whatever the next energy frontier is that kindly fate has hidden for us, like a yummy present hidden in the attic till Christmas day. Maybe it’s an eternal clean nuclear future, or maybe something else we’ve simply yet to uncover, but we can count on it, whatever it is.

    The environment is basically fine. Humans can’t effect this giant planet much, not 8 billion of us, not 18 billion. There’s certainly no proof of any overpopulation strain here at all. Does the world feel crowded to you? You’re just ornery. India, the most crowded place on Earth, is doing great. They don’t seem to mind. They live on top of each other, and who wouldn’t? We’re social beings. Stay poorer and simple if you want, or work hard and buy a sports car. Whatever gets you juiced. Every year new opportunities open up; why shouldn’t more people enjoy them?

    Animal species come and go. Why shouldn’t humans take the place of some of the many evolutionary dead-end species out there? We earned it, and it’s fine. Fish are for fishing. If you don’t catch anything somewhere, just move along to another spot and try there.

    If we can’t find the metals and minerals we need right here on Earth, there”s always the moon, and Mars and Venus. Did I mention the infinite universe?

    Things on Earth are great and have never been greater. But, we have one problem, and it’s serious. There’s some very bad boys on the loose trying to hide all these good things from you and from all of us. They’re trying to scare you with artificial crises, one after another Complete fictions! “Peak oil,” “overpopulation,” “climate disaster,” “soil fertility depletion,” “biodiversity loss”… the list goes on and on. You’ve heard this crap a hundred thousand times. Every one of these “crises” was written by these evildoers like a hollywood script. Who are these killjoy liars? They’re called the WEF. They’re part of the cabal of superwealthy people on this juicy planet.

    These jerks have the best of everything, and things are basically good everywhere, so you know these lucky dogs are living large! But are they satisfied? NO, THEY ARE NOT. They want more. They want what they have already, AND THEY WANT WHAT YOU HAVE TOO! Bastards! The world is a comfy oyster, and we could all be happy, but these assholes just want all the good stuff to themselves. They want you dead so they can have your share.

    We’ve got to fight these people and their lies, so we can have what’s ours. There’s a big bad wolf out there. WEF = wolf. We need a revolution. We need the rosy truth, not their greedy lies. We must rebel against these lying overlords! Rebel!

    • gustafson.robert.22 October 29, 2022 at 8:43 am #

      I’m not sure why they want us to eat bugs when there’s plenty of meat and land to raise it on, BUT THEY DO. THEY JUST HATE US, I GUESS.

      • Night Owl October 29, 2022 at 2:19 pm #

        There is so much land to raise it on that several governments, including the WEF-run Netherlands is currently forcing nearly 50% of farmers off of their land to repurpose it.

        Seems rather odd if there is a land shortage for producing food.

        Unless of course you are a Malthusian psychopath.

        Right, Gus?

        • gustafson.robert.22 October 29, 2022 at 7:07 pm #

          Your Resetters have all kinds of plans to repurpose land, especially land devoted to animal agriculture, to make it more efficient… the transition to plant-food and bug-food… why? To feed more people with less carbon emissions is what they say. Are they simply trying to steal land? Starve the plebes? Why would they do that if ag land is so plentiful, and population load exerting no pressure?

          • Night Owl October 30, 2022 at 4:03 am #

            They would do it for control.

          • gustafson.robert.22 October 30, 2022 at 4:26 am #

            Why not just tax and regulate the soul out of the farmers?

            “For control” is pretty simplistic. The forms that Great Reset plans and aims take are a little strange and baroque if all it is is simply about control. Occam’s razor would want a little more plain logic behind the explanation for all these specific policies, beyond just control for control’s sake, me think.

          • Night Owl October 30, 2022 at 2:51 pm #

            They are doing that.

            The open theft of the land is simply another escalation.

    • Woodchuck October 29, 2022 at 10:11 am #

      You’ve been informed? By who or what? Why do you trust your sources?

      There is no future energy utopia coming that will allow us to live in the manner we’ve become addicted to. This is like saying drug addicts are anticipating a future with both legal and unlimited dope available for everyone. Ain’t gonna happen. And even if it did, it would be very bad for us. The fossil fuel lifestyle of utter dependence on substances just makes people weak and pathetic.

      • gustafson.robert.22 October 30, 2022 at 9:05 am #

        This was some specific sarcasm, Woodchuck, and not so easy to pick up on if you don’t follow all these comments over months. I agree with you.

      Ocean depletion is a real thing.

          Nothings is really for ever not even this big blue water covered marble. At some point our sun will swallow it. Plastic will degrade to nothing at some point.

          • GreenAlba October 31, 2022 at 7:34 am #

            In the meantime, though, the nano-particles are throughout the food chain, whether from slowly decomposing ocean plastics, from the fibres that are flushed from our washing machines when we wash synthetic fabrics, especially fleece, or from the particles produced by tyres hitting the road (from both the tyre and the road), among other sources.

      • Jarek October 29, 2022 at 2:05 pm #

        Real data there, Night Owl. Will you engage? Ditto the huge plastic dump in the middle of the Pacific.

        • Night Owl October 29, 2022 at 2:31 pm #

          What does this have to do with your broad and unfocused theory that there are “too many humans?”

          • Jarek October 29, 2022 at 3:27 pm #

            Because it threatens humanity.

            You really don’t see the connection? A hardening of the heart and mind, perhaps leading to premature senility at some point.

          • Night Owl October 29, 2022 at 3:59 pm #

            It has nothing to do with my comments, which dealt exclusively with your broad and unfocused theory that there are “too many humans.”

            You are not very good at this.

          • gustafson.robert.22 October 29, 2022 at 7:33 pm #

            I think your accusation of “broad and unfocused theory” can simply be translated as “a complex, macro, multi-system issue which I don’t adequately grasp, and instead of working to rectify that comprehension shortfall, I attack and discount the issue instead.”

          • Jarek October 29, 2022 at 10:19 pm #

            Yes, Aristotle said, Do not demand more precision than the subject itself will afford.

            He is using the natural “fuzziness” of a very big subject to avoid engaging with it.

            But the big dump is there. None can deny that. And it threatens marine life and thus our life as well.

      • Paula D October 29, 2022 at 3:03 pm #

        Life on earth depends on the plankton, which provide over half the earth’s oxygen.
        The plankton are also essential for life in the ocean, as they are the basis of the food chain.

        Poison the ocean, kill off life on Earth.
        At least aerobic life. Maybe the anaerobic life that flourished for most of Earth’s history will make a recovery.

        Or just cover your ears and chant about how entitled you are to kill everything.

        • MaryQueen October 29, 2022 at 10:09 pm #

          There are a lot of dead zones in the ocean, yep. This has been actually obfuscated by the ‘green new deal’ shit which does not talk much about the ocean. the same people who sell the GND also clogged the ocean with poisonous masks.

          • gustafson.robert.22 October 29, 2022 at 11:14 pm #

            Environmental damage caused by Green New Deal is massive, including cutting for “biofuels” to meet “renewable” quotas), ramped up mining, pollutive waste (dead solar panels, etc.).

    Anyone buying this Pelosi/DePape story?

    I mean c’mon. It reads like an intact passport falling from the burning sky on 9/11.

    And of course, the guy’s a “right-wing nut job”, who espoused conspiracy theories and “anti-government covid beliefs” online (oooh, scary).

    Anyway, if people actually buy the story of a guy my age in his underwear breaking into the mansion of a sitting Speaker of the House in my underwear (because I’m sure there was no security on hand at the Pelosi Estate, he must have just walked by, stepped over the 2-ft picket fence, saw a window cracked open for Paul to cool a hot cherry pie on the sill, and taken his opportunity), then facing off ninja style with the octogenarian inside, deftly circling the ring, each with a hammer for some reason (because we all have two hammers laying around next to each other in an obvious place), meanwhile the cops somehow are called for a “wellness check” and get there before one of them attempts to strike a blow, and the cops witness the assault…then okay. Buy it.

    But it’s about the stupidest story I’ve ever heard in the weeks prior to an election, and there have been some doozies over the years.

    If Paul is truly in the hospital for some valid reason, best to ya, sir. But I’m guessing he isn’t. Good story, though.

    Can’t wait until the election is over.
