An Urgent Matter

     While our country sleepwalks through the deadly aftermath of the evil Covid-19 operation, the World Health Organization (WHO) puts the final touches on a nice bit of fuckery called its Pandemic Treaty on International Health Regulations (IHR) or “One Health” initiative, a Globalist power grab disguised in the saintly white robes of public health medicine. The agreement, to be finalized at the end of this month, will cede what’s left of your liberty to this unelected bureaucracy for the sake of global “equity and inclusivity,” meaning more lockdowns, constant surveillance, forced “vaccinations,” restrictions on medications, and censorship of anyone who voices a contrary opinion of these actions.

     Sound familiar? Yeah, it’s Covid-19 all over again, a second crack at controlling everything you do and every choice you might make by a cabal of governments and corporations, in other words, an international gang of fascists. The WHO is an agency of the United Nations, run out of Switzerland. You might recall this is the same place where the World Economic Forum (the WEF, a.k.a. “Davos”) has its headquarters. For years, the WEF has been issuing blueprints for a techno-fascist global regime under which, they state baldly, “you will own nothing and be happy.” (And eat bugs.)

     These birds are not kidding around, though anyone can see the megalomania on display, the grandiose will-to-power that seeks to subjugate the plebes of the world — and radically decrease our numbers — so that a remaining tiny elite can enter into a post-modern, techno-transhuman utopia uncluttered with us “useless eaters.” The corporate money and organizational mojo out of Davos is behind what amounts to a homicidal racketeering scheme masquerading as disease prevention.

      Of course, the pharmaceutical companies are front-and-center in the mix. They stand to make hundreds of billions of dollars distributing their mandated “vaccines” — which, you know by now, will not be properly tested, and, as currently being demonstrated by the Covid shots, are covertly designed to kill as many people as possible over a long period of time by switching off the natural defenses of your immune system, guaranteeing bewilderment and compliance by the hoodwinked masses. This might sound like a paranoid sci-fi movie, but, alas, the first phase has already happened starting in 2020. And since the pharma companies provide most of the advertising revenue for cable news media, you have been successfully mind-fucked into not seeing what is going on all around you: a whole lot of sickness and death.

     Fortunately, it is the nature of megalomania that it always thinks too highly of its power and reaches too far. For one thing, this WHO “treaty” has to be signed by its member nations. Not all of them are eager to do that. One was Slovakia, whose prime minister, Robert Fico, was gunned down a few days after he announced his country would opt out. The coterie of the USA behind the senile and incompetent “Joe Biden,” is avid to sign us onto the treaty, largely because much of global Big Pharma operates out of our country, and rents so many members of Congress, especially most of the Democratic Party.

      Under the US Constitution, the president can’t follow through on an international treaty without the Senate’s approval by two-thirds of its members. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) has been the most active figure in that body investigating the crimes of the Covid-19 op and organizing votes against the treaty, which he declares to be all 49 Republican senators. Thus, there can be no two-thirds majority ratification of the WHO treaty.

     But note that the shadow government running “Joe Biden” has been doing all kinds of things in overt defiance of the Constitution and the rulings of the US Supreme Court on what is permissible under the Constitution, for instance, cancelling colossal sums of college loan debt. The “Joe Biden” regime is lawless. Anyone following the malicious prosecutions of candidate Donald Trump and the mass round-up of J-6 protestors can see how that works. So, you are advised to call and write your elected representatives in Congress to make sure that the executive branch (the White House and its agencies) gets the message: no deal on the WHO treaty.

      There are other trends underway at this time that may assist us in escaping what amounts to a globalist coup d’état. One is that the economic and political crack-up of Western Civ is tending in the opposite direction of the extreme centralization of power that the WHO represents. Things are breaking down, especially things organized at the gigantic scale. Just look at the chaos overtaking corporatized doctor practices and conglomeratized hospitals in America. The corruption and degeneracy of national governments, with their colossal bureaucracies, has reached the stage that few among the people subject to them can fail to notice. That has sapped their legitimacy and prompted citizens to non-compliance with their increasingly insane diktats.

     Under the Constitution, the duties not spelled out under federal authority are left to the states. Public health is one of these. Accordingly, the attorney-generals of twenty-two US states have declared their objection to the WHO treaty in a letter to “Joe Biden” and their intent to ignore its commands. What remains to be seen is whether the Globalists can use a new engineered pathogen out of their many bioweapons labs to stir up another pandemic scare to terrorize the world population into being pushed around. Don’t doubt that they will try it, especially in a year when many nations will be holding elections. And don’t get fooled again when they do.

    And if you disagree or protest loudly, they will seize your bank account. Canada under Trudeau is the Beta test

    • Socrates-Detroit May 17, 2024 at 9:50 am #

      If the government can suspend your free speech and right to protest against the Israeli tactics of bombing civilians by smearing them as antisemitic, and making them potentially criminal, then it stands to reason they use that rationale take away your right to travel freely (a right Palestinians in the occupied West Bank do not have, by the way) by calling it as a public health hazard, and making travel illegal.

      As for Big Pharma “renting out Congress”, very true. But Big Pharma also controls big media. That’s why 60 Minutes (CBS) and Fox News will never investigate COVID, and why not a SINGLE MSM outlet showed up for Senator Ron Johnson’s vaccine injury hearing in November 2021. In 2021! No interest. Big Pharma runs all these TV ads supposedly to “inform and help” health consumers–in reality, they do this to buy off the media. Either Tucker Carlson goes, OR Big Pharma stops buying commercials on Fox.

      The “cabal” mentioned today operates on many fronts. The plandemic and COVID and complete corruption and takeover of what used to be public health is only one front.

      The financial front, from which the cabal profits from massive public and private debt, which is going to financially destroy the US.

      The military-industrial complex.

      The unconditional support of Israel.

      All policies that do very little for Middle America, but are very lucrative for special interests.

      • cowbell81 May 17, 2024 at 9:53 am #

        They tried to make travel illegal during COVID lock-downs. I still remember the stay-at-home orders. My employer issued a pass for use to keep in the car, in case we were pulled over coming to work, due to the nature of our business being in the “essential” category. There was talk of state border patrols being set-up to check IDs, keeping people from interstate commerce. Absolutely insane history that should never be forgotten!

        • Nathan May 17, 2024 at 7:16 pm #

          Cowbell. I’m from South Australia, and parts of Australia absolutely lost their minds during 2021 and 2022. State borders were enforced, and you needed passes to cross them. In Victoria, which had the most stringent lockdowns in Australia and perhaps the western world, my sister was ushered into her home by members of the army, armed and in camo gear, despite it still being supposedly within the allocated 1 hour of outdoor recreation per day!
          In New South Wales, my friend told me you needed paperwork to cross outside of your local govt municipality to the next. His wife needed paperwork to walk half a mile to work each day.
          We will not forget.

        You just had to throw your little anti-semitic Nazi rant in there about Israel, didn’t you?

        Our host is Jewish, and yet you feel the need to throw that out there at him. GTF off this site and head over to Stormfront with your buddies.

        • Rain Waters May 17, 2024 at 10:28 am #

          We have a first amendment that allows one to bring up psychopaths if one chooses.

            “…little anti-semitic Nazi rant in there about Israel…” seems to have been excised from the Comments section, which may give rise to puzzlement about the chest-beating exchange above.

        • elysianfield May 17, 2024 at 10:52 am #

          RW,
          You are correct! Soc-Det made an observation that is …impolitic.

          Let’s kill him.

          • Uncle Abraham May 17, 2024 at 12:02 pm #

            Elysianfield, so calling out an inveterate liar and promoter of unjust hate is calling for his murder? You’re also an inveterate liar, and good for you to make yourself known so we can avoid your toxicity.

          • elysianfield May 17, 2024 at 12:30 pm #

            Uncle,
            Unjust hate?

            Nigga, Please!

            “Hate” is so over used it is becoming almost sophomoric as a response. A cheap and slovenly retort. You can do better. Further define my toxicity. I want to be “struggled”. I need correction.

            Help me.

          • Uncle Bob May 17, 2024 at 7:30 pm #

            Be fucking careful when you throw around the word “nigga,” you sophomoric little goo-gargling gargoyle. Do that around the wrong person and you’ll get dropped and never get back up.

          • elysianfield May 17, 2024 at 11:36 pm #

            “Be fucking careful when you throw around the word “nigga,” you sophomoric little goo-gargling gargoyle. Do that around the wrong person and you’ll get dropped and never get back up.”

            Bob,
            Been there, done that…and I got a Tee shirt somewhere to prove it.

            Culturally taboo words. Offending the perpetually offended. It is a tiresome exercise, but in some venues, a train that always arrives on time.

            Clever alliteration. Are you not concerned that it would offend goo-gurglers?

            Why not?

        • TruthSeeker1986 May 17, 2024 at 10:52 am #

          @JackStraw

          And so he’s Jewish? I’m half black, but you dont see me bitching just because people say something offensive about black people. Stop crying. People can speak their minds if they want regardless of who or what you are. You people amaze me with that “You can criticize anyone but Jewish people.”

          • TruthSeeker1986 May 17, 2024 at 11:20 am #

            Meant to say calm down instead of stop crying. lol. Oh well too late to change it.

          • Uncle Abraham May 17, 2024 at 12:05 pm #

            The real issue is the lies being told – lies that are getting people killed, particularly the Muslim Arabs who get incentivized to continue in their belligerence. So your “people can speak their minds” bit is missing the point, bigtime. You make it about Jews because that’s an issue to you. It’s not to me or God. And I promise you, He is not having your bullshit calling yourself a truth seeker.

          • elysianfield May 17, 2024 at 12:33 pm #

            Uncle is in high dudgeon. He is on a roll.

            He speaks to God, and God answers.

          • hmuller May 17, 2024 at 1:01 pm #

            Everybody lies, Uncle Abraham, Muslim Arabs, Jews, Zionist Christians. You want to censor lies because lies are bad: truth is good. God tells you the truth, then you can tell us.

            What a terrible thing that ” free speech”, it allows people to lie. Fortunately for us, there are always people ready to stand between us and those damn lies.

          • Jarek May 17, 2024 at 12:40 pm #

            Big difference already: The Police are willing to crush skulls this time. Maybe because the protests are anti-Jewish and not anti-White?

            Think about it.

        • John K May 17, 2024 at 11:00 am #

          Well, it’s well-known that Israel was among the most tyrannical nations during the Covid vaccine rollout–including “passports” and such–and its citizens also suffered high rates of vaccine injury. So . . . you OK with that? No criticism justified?

        • Socrates-Detroit May 17, 2024 at 11:07 am #

          @JackStraw

          Why don’t you point what was “antisemitic” in post, so I and everyone else can understand you are barking about?

          Our host is an American who happens to be Jewish. I didn’t insult him.

          Ilan Pappe is also Jewish, an ISRAELI Jew.

          An Israeli academic who has anti-Zionist views.

          After arriving at Detroit Metro on Monday, May 13, Pappe said he was interrogated by the Department of Homeland Security for two hours. He was asked he was a Hamas supporter, and whether he thought the Israeli attack on Gaza was genocide.

          DHS copied his phone, and then allowed him to proceed.

          Are other Jews or Arabs interrogated like that at Detroit Metro? That seems antisemitic to me.

          If anyone is behaving like Na-zis, it’s the Israeli goverment that has bombed thousands of people to death in Gaza, and that engages in all kinds of crimes in the occupied West Bank (arbitrary imprisonment without cause, arbitrary killings, theft of land and water).

          H.R.6090 – Antisemitism Awareness Act of 2023 is intended to curb freedom of speech, and the right to assemble. If it becomes law, it could be used as precedent to curb speech and comments from people like RFK Jr and JHK regarding mRNA injections and other public health issues.

          The First Amendment gives everyone the right to free speech. Even people like you (if you are even human, as you appear to glory in the blood of Palestinans).

          It doesn’t give you the right to name-call. But I sense you are even stupider in person than you sound, so it probably can’t be helped.

          Have a nice day:)

          • tuco22 May 17, 2024 at 11:23 am #

            Don’t you think Hamas knew what the response would be from Israel for October 7? And don’t you think they WANTED this response from Israel to put Israel into an impossible position in the world’s eyes? And don’t you think the deaths of the Palestinians that have died so far as a result were ANTICIPATED and WANTED by Hamas, because they make Israel look monstrous? Don’t you understand that the demonic want blood? Why do you think people sacrificed their first born three thousand years ago?

          • Beryl of Oyl May 17, 2024 at 11:58 am #

            tuco, I think various actors wanted this to happen, for a variety of reasons, not least how it has managed to divide the people who would resist the globalist oppression.

            Israel didn’t need intelligence to know that something was very likely to occur on that particular date.

            They should have been ready, just in case.

            Blinken told Qatar not to worry about any extradition requests for Hamas leaders.

            Lindsey was crying somebody please use a nuclear weapon.

          • Uncle Abraham May 17, 2024 at 12:14 pm #

            The fact that Jews can be so stupid as to support those who seek to genocide them is testament to the fact that the Jews tolerate to a much greater degree differences of opinion than their enemies, Islamic jihadists, do, which is zero.

            If the name fits, you wear it. You are an insufferable bigot. You declare it every time you come on here to comment. You keep telling the same lies with intellectual haughtiness, as if your citing chapter and verse actually applies to anything approaching reality. It doesn’t. I know that, and others who live in reality know it as well. You are a toxic influence and those for destruction will have it with you.

          • elysianfield May 17, 2024 at 12:37 pm #

            …So now, we are toxic bigots? Insufferable? Arrogant blind fools? Intellectually haughty?

          • GreenAlba May 17, 2024 at 1:00 pm #

            OK, so I’m the one who repeatedly gets flak from a certain opinionated person on here for saying that our democidal global elites aren’t necessarily (pending definitive evidence) exclusively Jewish.

            So, will I still be called antisemitic if I point out AGAIN that evidence suggests Hamas is Israel’s bitch just the way ISIS is the US’ bitch?

            blogs.timesofisrael.com/hamas-israels-own-creation/

            The author of this piece is a loyal Israeli, who still wears a uniform for his country. I can’t give you any more details, since I read this article a while ago and cited it on here, but now I’ve been blocked unless I switch off my VPN. So there we are.

            I lived through the times of Operation Gladio when nobody knew that it was actually NATO/UK/US who were getting people like Aldo Moro assassinated all over Europe.

            There are no limits to the deceptions and false flags. Hamas sailing unimpeded into Israel while the IDF sat on its arse for 10 hours is one a blind man could see.

            And don’t even pretend I support Hamas in any way, shape or form.

            Tucson, if you are around …

            In terms of NATO being a ‘defensive alliance’, what exactly do you think of Operation Gladio?

            NATO went around assassinating people and blowing stuff (and people) up and pretending it was communists.

            Wikipedia only gives a fraction of the Operation Gladio story. Daniele Ganser’s book on it is very good. He also gave a presentation in a symposium that you can find on the UK Column site (it includes 9/11 – he’s also written a book for high school students called ‘America: Ruthless Empire’). I think he’s Swiss, but I can’t remember definitely.

            I beg to differ with your statement that the First Amendment gives everyone the right to free speech. It doesn’t anymore. In fact, most of the constitution no longer applies to white people. It’s just that most white people can’t see it.

            “Criticism of Muslim regimes is dangerous. Go over to Syrian or Iran or southern Lebanon or Gaza and try it sometime.”

            You can’t only criticise Syria – you can occupy 30% of it for years and steal its oil and wheat, as the US is currently doing, while Syrians go hungry and suffer endless power blackouts, thanks to US sanctions. The US military is also serving as a taxi service to ISIS while pretending to be there to fight it.

            I went to Syria in 2007, before the west decided to destroy it. We had people stop us in the street to welcome us to their country (tourism wasn’t yet well established), even though (in addition to Palestinian refugee camps) they had to host Iraqi refugee camps. Knowing the Iraqi camps were there because the US/UK illegally invaded their country made the warm welcome all the more surprising.

            I’ve never felt safer in any city at night than in Damascus. Not a thug or a dodgy geezer to be seen. Although I’m aware the citizens are obviously well surveilled.

          • BackRowHeckler May 17, 2024 at 3:58 pm #

            We didn’t steal any oil from Syria, we paid for every ounce. In fact we paid a premium … I think we got screwed. On any account Syria doesn’t have all that much oil to begin with, as most of the country is wasteland & desert.

          • Paula D May 17, 2024 at 4:16 pm #

            We never paid Syria a cent for the oil that we have been stealing since Obama set up ISIS as an excuse to invade and occupy in 2014.

            It’s bad enough to be a thief, but to lie about is even worse.

            The US is still occupying 30% of Syria and it is still stealing their oil.

            And their wheat.

          • Paula D May 17, 2024 at 4:31 pm #

            Much of Syria is desert, but not the part the US is occupying.

            That is the part with farmland. That is where the US steals Syria’s wheat.

            The oil is also there. It isn’t much if you compare it to Saudi Arabia, but it’s enough for the US to steal.

            30 to 50 oil tankers a day cross the Syrian-Iraqi border with stolen Syrian oil.

          • GreenAlba May 17, 2024 at 5:15 pm #

        Who’s been prevented from slandering Israel? Tens of thousands of frustrated, overweight coeds, soyboys wrapped in Keffayas, campus communists, foreign student America & Israel haters, anti-semites, and social losers in colleges from Berkeley to Brown … have been out on the streets chanting their stupid lying hatefu anti Israell slogans for 7 months now. — without much official interference.

            TS, Soros is no friend of Israel no matter what his religious affiliation is. And there are others funding these protests besides Soros.

            *Race

            But I hardly even claim being partially black because I really despise the people. I prefer to say Light skinned, though most mixed race people often struggle with accepting both sides, they either hate or dislike one over the other. But that’s besides the point. Being a weapon and used as propaganda bait isn’t fun. So no the people who run Israel are no friend of mine, we’re just a tool used to eliminate white people from Europe and America.

          • Uncle Bob May 17, 2024 at 7:44 pm #

            Soros is an ethic Jew who collaborated with the actual Nazis, got rich as a result, and describes that period as the happiest days of his life. He despises America and Britain for defeating his benefactors, deyests Jewry and God, and wants nothing better than to destroy us and Israel — especially if the satanic old fuck can make money on the deal.

      • buckeyeman May 17, 2024 at 10:56 am #

        Our beloved host has once again offered up a bizarre posting. He refers repeatedly to “the Constitution” as if there was some importance attached thereto. He even references, without attribution, the twin star system of Article I, Section 8 (the “enumerated powers”, “delegated powers”, “expressed powers”, or “explicit powers” clause) which operates in tandem with the Tenth Amendment, which reserves to the States or the People any powers not EXPRESSLY given to the Federal government.

        This limitation on Federal authority is no more than an illusion, a cruel joke perpetrated on the sheepish population by a perverse government led by nine black-robed and unelected “jurists”. Just read Wickard v. Filburn if you don’t believe me.

        JHK has therefor, and not for the first time, flown us with him on the back of a beautiful but imaginary butterfly into the dreamland of a fairy tale story where the People are ruled by well-intentioned and serious patriots. There is no finding our way out of this nightmare so why pretend that there is?

        And don’t forget that “…you are advised to call and write your elected representatives in Congress to make sure that the executive branch (the White House and its agencies) gets the message…” Yeah, that’s gonna work. For sure.

          Well said. Democracy is the lowest form of government, given the base human nature of the average person.

          • Cankerpuss May 17, 2024 at 1:16 pm #

            Only land owning white men had the privilege to vote. Why? Because they were the ones who had a financial stake in the government. Any mutt can vote now and when that happens, as it always does in a Democracy, the mutts figure out they can vote them lavish benefits at the hand of the government. When that happens, amen to that democracy.

            We are well past that point as the Boomers were the first generation to figure out they could vote themselves benefits that will bankrupt future generations.

          IMO this post is a great synopsis of what’s going on; in fact I’m going to send it to a friend who isn’t ready to take the red pill but remains responsive to hearing about these issues. (Last week’s post was downright hilarious – maybe I’ll send that one her way, too.)

          At any rate, my sense is that the States that are already making waves will secede over this issue if push comes to shove. The older I get the more I understand and admire the genius of the Founding Fathers and the beauty of 50 independent States…

        • Uncle Bob May 17, 2024 at 8:15 pm #

          The Tenth Amendment was castrated by the success of New England’s war against the South. Our desire for more stuff, ideally paid for by someone else — Soak the rich! Bring home the bacon! — has led to the situation we’re in, where pols maintain their positions by bribing us with our own money, and most of us stupidly think it’s a good deal. No wonder so many people around the world see us as nitwits.

      • draupnir May 17, 2024 at 11:18 am #

        I find myself quite disinterested in the whole Palestinian question. They brought it on themselfves. If the Israelis wipe those off them in Palestine off face of the earth, I feel they’d be quite justified. They have the right of self defense. There would still be plenty of them around to trouble the councils of the weak and foolish, so it could hardly be considered genocide. They’d be in exile, like the Jews before them and probably the Romani.

        • U R IntheVillage May 17, 2024 at 12:56 pm #

          draupnir: I don’t wish to dive into the Israel/Palestine question, but I have to take exception to your comment. By your reasoning, because of the action of the Nazis in Germany, we would have been justified in killing every last German in Germany after WW II. Ditto every last Japanese in Japan. Oh, and to be consistent, every last Italian in Italy.

          To your way of thinking, “self defense” means killing everyone of a particular ethnicity/Nationality after aggression by their leadership.

          By your reasoning, the Afghans have a right to “wipe” every last American residing in the United States “off the face of the earth.”

          Tight reasoning there. Think of other absurd examples on your own.

          • Cankerpuss May 17, 2024 at 1:41 pm #

            I think you are getting a little carried away. I’ll admit I am not an expert on this Israel – Hamas thing and can only reference what I have read, heard and seen. I don’t believe Israel is trying to wipe out all Palestinians. They want to purge the world of Hamas.

            This is very similar to the same reaction the USA had to 9-11 when they invaded Iraq to purge the world of Al Queada. How many hundreds of thousands did the USA kill in its effort to do the same thing Israel did.

            Like I said, I can only go from what I read, see and hear but that’s my take.

          • draupnir May 17, 2024 at 1:51 pm #

            I don’t see it as the same thing at all. Your argument is specious or you have no discerment. It’s more a matter of pest control. You get the vermin out of your house–there’s no intent to exterminate the whole species. As I said, they brought this on themselves. Their co-religionists ought to offer them santuary, but apparently they consider them too troublesome to live, as well.

        Here he goes again – Soc can’t help himself. The subject of the post isn’t Israel, but Soc has Israel Derangement Syndrome, so he can’t resist making a connection that has no connection.

        Anyway, to put this canard of “Israel is committing genocide” away, I’m suggest the IDF goes IOF and Genghis Khan (or Cohen) on Gaza and shows the liars and haters what a real genocide looks like.

        And meanwhile, Soc. answer this: How come you and your haters are always silent when Muslims are slaughtering Muslims in other countries, which they are doing by many multiples over the targeted campaign of the IDF that was actually attacked, very dissimilar to these other bloodbaths?

        • Socrates-Detroit May 17, 2024 at 12:22 pm #

          @Uncle Abraham–is that the pen name for Jonathan Pollard?

          Your comment is amateurish deflection and distortion.

          Anyone who is not a full-fledged Zionist, who lacks the mindset of “Israel Uber Alles!” is a “hater”.

          Anybody who points out the obvious, that Israel is attempting to systematically destroy Gaza and remove the Gazans (by having them leave, by killing them and making the place uninhabitable) is a “hater”.

          You sound very much like Jonathan Pollard, who in November 2023, according to the Jerusalem Post, so disagreed with the families of Israeli hostages held by Hamas, that he called for “the families of hostages to be silenced”.

          Are you Jonathan Pollard?

          Or simply one of his supporters?

          For the benefit of those who don’t know, Jonathan Pollard was born in Texas, convicted of espionage on behalf of ISRAEL and sentenced to life imprisonment. Look him up.

          Pollard is said to be the most damaging spy in US history.

          Some of what he was charged with is so sensitive it remains classified.

          If Israel is America’s “ally”, how can this be? Pollard didn’t spy for the USSR or China.

          Netanyahu and the Israeli Lobby agitated for Pollard’s sentence to reduced and Pollard to be freed. Obama released Pollard, who did only 20 years in prison. Today Pollard lives free in Israel, the fat, despicable, traitor.

          So, are you Jonathan Pollard, the American traitor and hero of Israel?

          Or you just trying to be?

          • Jarek May 17, 2024 at 1:00 pm #

            Well said. Israel is not our ally as this proves, what to speak of the attack on the Liberty.

      • Not_GeorgeT May 17, 2024 at 10:46 am #

        I think it is ‘proceeding apace’, nonetheless it certainly appears to be in speed-it-up mode.

        Maybe more of the ‘still living after getting jabbed’ are grasping the lie they were sold by the massive fear campaign. This awakening to what went on is itself a form of fear. Now they have the fear of what unknown processes are happening inside their bodies.

        Thus the elite, the powers-that-be, the godless monsters, or whatever else one might choose to call them, are seeing they have an increasingly smaller window of opportunity before it comes crashing down.

        Ignoring history comes with great peril. The French Revolution and its aftermath is noted numerous times on here as an example of things going awry.

      The Republicans serve a purpose and that is to be the vocal opposition to the PTB. Nothing more. They are well compensated for their vocal opposition but when you look at what they do they are one and the same as the Democrats.

      And it is all designed as such to make the people think their votes matters, that there is an opposing party. This is done so that they can continue to wage their wars, print their money and rob the taxpayers blind.

      They are harping a lot about this bird flu that can jump from birds to cows and from cows to humans. They are still trying to frighten the masses. However, the masses are little more experienced than they were in 2020. I don’t think they’ll get the reaction they are hoping for.

      • tuco22 May 17, 2024 at 11:03 am #

        I figured they’d say this supposed new bird flu jumps from birds to cows. They have to come up with something to justify destroying whole flocks or herds of animals so they can keep the prices high and the supplies short.

        • tuco22 May 17, 2024 at 11:04 am #

          I don’t believe there is a bird flu. Just sayin. When I was growing up, we didn’t have these pig/cow/bird flu’s.

          • draupnir May 17, 2024 at 12:42 pm #

            Ebola is almost certainly zoonotic. Plague is zoonotic. They believe the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918 was a zoonosis. No, it’ really hasn’t changed. Diseases in our animals can change over time, becoming more transmissible to humans.

          They have been trying for decades to get bird flu to jump to humans, without success.

          Bird flu, along with SARS and MERS, were the three viruses that Obama put a temporary moratorium on, back in 2014.

          That is when Fauci moved the research to Wuhan.

          But lets ignore all that and pretend that what they are telling us about bird to cow to human transmission is true.

          Because we wouldn’t want to shut down the 300+ gain-of-function bioweapons labs the US operates around the world, would we?
          Even if the US did sign a treaty banning such research 50 years ago, which means they are operating illegally, international and nationally.

    Please stop referring to them as the “democratic” party; the name is “democrat” & they are anything but. Don’t believe me? Look what they’re doing to RFK Jr., kicking him off/making sure he’s not on the ballot & not allowing him into the debates. How “democratic” is that?

    Bottom line: it isn’t in any way, shape, or form. This nation’s greatest enemy is not Russia, China, or North Korea; rather it is the democrat party which has morphed into a fascist party in bed with Big Tech, Big Pharma, & Big Defense. Don’t believe me? Go out & disagree with them in a public platform & watch what happens to you; you’ll be canceled, fired, or doxxed & driven from “polite” society.

    You vote for a democrat – any democrat – you’re voting for the complete destruction of this country.

            The problem with that is:

            What happens when there is a Socialist dream country and we do not interfere with military threats and sanctions?

            Things might turn out pretty rosy with housing and jobs and healthcare for everyone.

            Then Americans will say, “We’ll have what they’re having!”

            This is why the U.S. has had sanctions on Cuba for decades.

            I can completely understand why 80% of the world are now behind the multi-polar world concept which would make them sanction proof, especially if BRICS+++ takes off.

            Even the Soviet Union was a threat to our overlords, back in the 30s.

            While Americans stood in breadlines and watched their children go hungry and cold, they pointed at the full employment of the USSR, and said “Why can’t we have that?”

            That is when they set up the WPA and the CCC, and put people to work building a whole lot of the infrastructure we still rely on today.

            That’s all down the Memory Hole, though. They don’t want us thinking that Americans could work on improving our country, instead of blowing up the infrastructure of other people’s countries.

          • Socrates-Detroit May 17, 2024 at 12:45 pm #

            @Paula

            So all those “Soviet” people who died in the 20s and 30s, the millions who allegedly starved, was that just right-wing propaganda?

            You have a pretty good track record, but this is the first time I’m hearing of “Americans in breadlines looking at the USSR’s ‘full employment’ and wanting that”.

            I don’t have that impression.

            I think USSR is basically an example of the mob taking over (1917, with the support of Germany and also, certain wealth western interests, see Larry Abraham/Gary Allen book “None Dare Call it Conspiracy”) in a time of chaos, and then methodically eliminating opposition and establishing a dictatorship.

            In the USSR, my perception is the “proletariat” was uniformly poor, on a subsistence basis. Wealth was distributed unequally–everyone was poor.

            America had wealth and income inequality–and still does.

            Since the 1960s, and especially since the 1980s, the wealthy have bigger slice of the pie, in the US.

            But the US was the best country, for the most people in terms of absolute numbers and percent of the population, during the 20th century.

            To some extent, we are victims of our “success”.

            As for the USSR being a threat, perhaps it was “above the table” and used to harass labor unions and progressives in the 1930s, I buy that. But Henry Ford, Armand Hammer, and other big capitalists invested in, and helped the USSR, stay afloat.

            The big communist experiment ended, relatively peacefully (thank God!) in 1989-91. While I think America was infinitely better than the USSR, the USSR and USA have some big parallels–a huge military as the country is going broke.

            Dmitry Orlov (who has been on a JHK podcast) points them out. So our implosion may be imminent any day….

          • Paula D May 17, 2024 at 12:57 pm #

            Believe what you want, SD. There was an enormous propaganda campaign launched immediately after the revolution.

            Ever seen the Are There Bolsheviks In Your Bathroom posters?

            The whole “they killed millions” is part of that.

            The truth is that our ruling overlords were threatened by the millions of people in the US who wanted full employment, and who pointed to the USSR as an example of such.

            And now we are being reminded daily of what the citizens of the USSR built in Ukraine.
            Railroads, electrical grids almost impossible to destroy, subways that double as bomb shelters, giant apartment buildings built to withstand bombs, dams and bridges that are also difficult to destroy, ports, and much more.

            And there are still people who say, against real time evidence, that “we pretend to work and they pretend to pay us”?

            Power of propaganda.

            Look at the US bridge that completely collapsed when bumped by a ship. Ask yourself why the US has no bomb shelters. (School desks don’t count.)

            It is very obvious which country was going to attack, and which country was going to be attacked, by the built environment that each built.

            But do go on reciting what you learned in the 80s. Just don’t expect me to believe it.
            Remember? I’m the one who doesn’t believe anything that the authorities tell me.

            The National Socialist enacted an economic miracle once the bankers were kicked out. That system contained the best of both Capitalism and Socialism.

            The Soviet Union was a dud by comparison, at least until they were given hundred of millions of dollars in aid by the US in order to destroy Germany.

          • Socrates-Detroit May 17, 2024 at 2:04 pm #

            @Paula

            I am not familiar with the “Bolsheviks in Bathroom Posters”.

            My understanding is that Stalin was pretty tyrannical leader.

            My understanding is that millions perished in the 1920s or 1930s in the Soviet Union from starvation.

            It’s possible that could be Western “capitalist” exaggeration; or exaggeration from populist, anti-big money, America-first conservatives.

            By the same token, if these things did occur, it is possible that American “progressive” exaggeration downplays that because it doesn’t agree with the progressive narrative that the USSR and Cuba were better places because of “Communism”.

            Have you ever watched Oliver Stone’s multi-part documentary “Untold History of the United States”? I watched it–I thought it was pretty good. I think every American should watch it. I think Stone’s documentary offers a information that many Americans, especially “conservatives” are not aware of or ignore.

            I think you might agree with Stone’s “progressive” bias. I’m OK with it because I’m aware of it. Everyone has a bias.

            I like where he says “my experience in Vietnam changed my outlook. I was there”.

            But even Stone is not perfect. I say this, because he makes some comments about the Greek Civil War, between the Communists (EAM//ELAS) and the Anglo-American-supported Greek Government.

            Well, Stone was not there. Neither was I. However, I had the chance to talk to people who were in the crossfire. Stone’s account is little bit off, though his general point (on THAT facet of America’s history) is notionally correct.

            And that makes me wonder about some other parts… what is he leaving out in order to make his point (leaving out key, pertinent facts is one of the most effective ways to promote one’s argument).

            Still, that said, it’s a very good documentary. I saw it on Netflix (it’s been gone for years now), I would watch it again, a lot of unstated truths.

            Another great documentary–from 2014/15, that I saw on Rumble in 2022 was Ukraine on Fire. Very eye-opening. Note the dates…the documentary was completed in 2014/15, before the Russian intervention.

          • Paula D May 17, 2024 at 4:52 pm #

            My point is that your understanding comes from your immersion in US propaganda your entire life.
            I understand that, I got it too. But I started running up against reality in the 80s, which made me question it more and more.

            Eventually, I got to where I think I see it clearly.

            For instance, I do know that there was a crop failure and famine in Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus in the early 30s, and many people starved.
            This is spun in the US as the “Holodomor”, and only the Ukrainian deaths are mentioned.
            I think that my understanding is more balanced. I also know that there had been famines in those areas for centuries, because that is how life was, back in the day, but that they never had another one after that, due to improved farming and the irrigation dams they built.

            Stalin was a strong leader, not a dictator, and the Soviets did execute about 800,000 people in the early days. I don’t justify that, but I also don’t scream about “a 100 million dead!!!!”, just because Timothy Snyder says to.

            Remember that when Stalin died, millions of people came out to mourn. And even today, he is second in popularity to Putin, in Russian polls. And he wasn’t even Russian.
            The bullshit they feed us doesn’t compute with the fact that Russians don’t believe it.

            If the bullshit they feed us is true, why don’t Russians hold an annual Remembrance Day or March of the Immortals for those millions killed?

            They tell us that Stalin killed more people than died in WW2.

            At some point, you have to ask yourself, how could this possibly be true? How could Stalin have possibly killed more people than the war?
            And if it were true, why didn’t Russians notice?

            Come on, man. At some point you just have to use your common sense.

            Ha, ha, Jarek, (who rails about the Holodomor but ignores the Irish famine, because commmies weren’t involved), tries to disprove what I said by posting a UK media source which says what I said, basically. My numbers were low and my poll was less than theirs…

            ”Nearly 700,000 people were executed during the Great Terror of 1937-38, according to conservative official estimates.”

            “Yet some historians fret that what they say is Putin’s ambiguity about Stalin along with Russia’s 2014 annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea have emboldened Stalin’s admirers.

            Monuments and memorial plaques honouring Stalin have sprung up in different Russian regions. State-approved textbooks have softened his image, and an opinion poll in June crowned him the country’s most outstanding historical figure.”

            What she said….

          • Paula D May 17, 2024 at 8:37 pm #

            I mean my number was higher. I said 800,000, they said 700,000.

          Nobody knows what communism is, Cankerpuss. They have this vague nebulous idea of what it is that they always mix up with the former Soviet Union. Rarely do they ever think of China or Vietnam or North Korea. But marxism is, I believe, more hard-hitting. I think it’s something more solid that they can grasp. But maybe not.

      Look at what they do and you’ll learn who the Republicans truly serve. The are servants of the military-industrial-government complex, the true government that rules over us in corruption and filth.

      The people no longer have any representation.

      As Tuco22 commonly says “keep voting for those elected representatives.”

      We are ruled by a uniparty and it’s well past time the American people figure this out and cast off the two party mind-fuckery that has been foisted upon them.

      • tuco22 May 17, 2024 at 11:01 am #

        Well, Cankerpuss, good luck with that. I’m reminded of what Gideon went through when God told him to raise an army against the Philistines. He got an arm of about 30,000 men together, and then God told him to initiate a series of tests on these men, and he ended up with a net fighting force of 300. My point is most of the population will “go along to get along” because that’s how they’ve been indoctrinated in the public school system. And because of that, they’ll continue to vote two-party.

          Our political legislature was never designed to be a full time job and a 30 year career. It was designed to be where the members of Congress would leave their jobs for a short period of time, pass a budget, establish some legislation and then return to their full time jobs and careers. It was intended to be public “service” and a sacrifice.

          Somewhere along the lines of history serving in Congress became a full time job and a long term career. Of course these pricks in Congress will never do anything to limit their terms, their pay, or anything else because that will harm their careers, their livelihoods.

          Here’s a couple of useless musings about our Congress and what I would like to see happen.
          1. Congress needs to be vastly increased in size. There is nothing in the Constitution that says the Congress can’t be 2000 seats or even 5000 seats. Make the districts smaller and get the people closer to their so called representatives. In my state one representative represents nearly a million people. Absurd.
          2. Congress needs to be a part time legislature. Have one congressional session every two years that lasts 3 months. Pass a budget, get some work done and recess until the next Congress. This full time legislature is strangling us. Send the pricks home for 18 months.
          3. Congress creatures derive only a stipend for travel and lodging while they are in the legislative session. Once the session is over the stipend is revoked and they are required to sustain themselves.

          It will never happen, but I day dream….

          • Groundhog May 17, 2024 at 12:22 pm #

            No, it will never happen and you are daydreaming. Somehow, like all the rest of your countrymen, you’ve believed all the propaganda you were taught about democracies and republics. These two forms of government are unstable and don’t last. No amount of republican apologetics can ever change this basic fact concerning human nature. On average, a republic dies after 250 years – and we are at that point on our timeline. It should not be rocket science to understand that the USA is failing and heading for an ultimate living arragement very much like South America or Africa. We’ll have broken pavement and broken nations.

    If nothing else (and there was much more), what Covid demonstrated was how little real intelligence and fortitude is left in the population. From what I hear in casual conversation among my peers, another round of medical terror will probably be successful.
    Some sort of general collapse of the status quo in the West may be the most realistic way out. That might clear a few heads. Hopefully, it won’t be nuclear.

      Well, the only way to have medical terror succeed is to have a gullible, brainwashed, chickenshit population that’s composed mostly of ignorant hypochondriacs that run to a doctor every time a fart doesn’t sound right or they have a headache. Our “health care” system is a giant predator that feeds on us as though we are fenced in livestock. Cattle endure mass vaccinations as well……

    Greetings,

    I have a gut feeling that the plandemic was a one-and-done kind of event. The powers that be can not release another deadly virus because it will kill all of the people vaccinated against the previous virus now that they have a compromised immune system.

    It would become fairly obvious that the new strain was making mincemeat out of one specific group and not the other.

    Finally, my own daughter, someone that refused to listen to me, is vaccine injured though she will refuse to admit that her Lupus diagnosis has anything to with her mrna manipulation, is one of those people without an immune system now. The took the shot in order to keep her job being an assistant manager at a grocery store but can hardly ever go to work now because she has constant sinus infections, skin rashes, or other ailments.

    • Cankerpuss May 17, 2024 at 10:50 am #

      My gut feeling, Nickel, is that they will try another “fake” plandemic using the ordinary flu to yet again scare the masses into more vaccination, masks, social distancing and probably even more insanity.

      The thing that is different, and I feel this in my gut, is fewer people will be deceived this time. I may be wrong but I think if they try this again we will see more non-compliance.

      Truth is, their have lost the confidence of the governed and can no longer govern. Our governments, both state and federal are completely illegitimate. The only thing keeping society as together as it is are the majority of good people still trying to live their lives in peace.

      My wife took the shot when it first came out as well as the second dose but refused any of the 39 boosters they threw at us. I’ve been loading her up with resveratrol, quercetin, vitamin D and others. She has not had any injuries from the vaccine. At least not yet.

      • tuco22 May 17, 2024 at 10:55 am #

        • Not_GeorgeT May 17, 2024 at 11:09 am #

          Possibly. The 25% or so who did not still will not, the 25% – 30% who blindly followed will (whatever number remains of them) do it again. Many of them are easy to identify, they still wear masks.

          It’s the middle group who could shift in larger numbers to a ‘not this time’ group, joining the initial group who remain unvaxxed.

        • Cankerpuss May 17, 2024 at 11:23 am #

          I don’t think so, Tuco. Many people I talk to have come to the realization that covid was a scam job.

          Like George T said there is a mainstay group that will follow and believe all they hear. I still see bozos wearing masks. Those people are lost souls and are eliminating themselves from the gene pool.

    Re: “PISMO”

    our city manager can announce an emergency without city council approval and then spend any sum of money on anything. The people elect a city council to represent them but can be overridden by a city bureaucrat at whim.

    To see if the situation is the same in your town, search the word “emergency” in the town charter.

    Then tell the city council that a potential dictatorship exists and demand the charter be re-written.

      In theory it is a way to approach the issue.

    I don’t always agree with you, but this is one where you really 100% sum it up. Ever since hearing about this ghastly treaty, I have been literally praying every day for its rejection in the USA. And needless to say yet again, I feel like a complete rube for supporting the Democratic Party with my vote for as long as I did. Perhaps my screen name should be “Mr. Rube-Auto”!

  12. Cankerpuss May 17, 2024 at 10:45 am #

    Jim, thanks for the write up. My wife and I were talking about this new “bird flu” that is said can spread to cows and ultimately to humans and that this will be the next covid lie to cause hysteria among the masses. She shrugged her shoulders and said many more people won’t be hoodwinked with the next “pandemic.” I tend to agree with her. I for one will not be. I didn’t panic in the last one when I noticed that the virus only spreads at church and in schools but doesn’t spread at Walmart and Amazon warehouses. I quickly discovered It was a very selective virus and immediately turned off any sense of panic, threw the mask away and refused any vaccination.

    I will be the same with their next “pandemic.” Fuck them and their mandates. I will not comply.

    You said: “That has sapped their legitimacy and prompted citizens to non-compliance with their increasingly insane diktats.”

    I have said it before and I will say it again. Our government is illegitimate. They have lost the confidence of the governed. It is the governed from who the government derives its authority. When the governed no longer have faith in the government the government has lost its authority and is therefore no longer legitimate and needs to be replaced. We are well past that point where at least half of America (probably closer to 3/4) no longer has any confidence in their government, ignores their diktats, and refuses to comply.

    The problem with this is the government still wants compliance so it resorts to coercion to force compliance with their diktats. This is where governments become very dangerous. Once they start engaging in force and coercion that is when the governed finally have had enough and start hanging these fuckers from lamp posts. We aren’t quite there yet but it will come.

    Excellent write up. Thank you.

      The government may have lost some authority, but they still have almost total control over the masses. We have a wholesale invasion happening on our border and everyone sits on their hands and doesn’t do a goddamned thing about it. A government that won’t protect its borders is doomed. A populace that sits by and does nothing while being destroyed deserves whatever happens to them.

      • tuco22 May 20, 2024 at 9:13 am #

        I agree with you, cbeard, but harken back to your first sentence. We are a captured population, and as such, our options are limited. They will not suffer any part of the population to act “independently,” especially if it’s white. The lessons of the Branch Davidians and Randy Weaver showed the country what happens to white people who try to live separately.

  13. Uncle Bob May 17, 2024 at 10:53 am #

    *If the government can suspend your rights anytime it deems something is a crisis, you don’t have rights. You have permissions.* The miseducation of Americans for over a hundred years has caused most people to see rights (such as free speech, free association, petitioning government, property, weapons/self-defense, freedom from government intrusion) as privileges, while actual privileges (citizenship, the ability to have a doctor murder your children, selective enforcement of laws depending on party registration) are rights. Rights descend from God, while privileges are granted by men. Therefore, if a “right” (such as baby slaughter) can be “taken away,” it’s not a right, but a privilege. To make things worse, we elect politicians who vow to eliminate actual rights and enshrine privileges because too many people are too stupid to realize that doing so further degrades the country. But who gives a fuck? We need to kill the Jews and burn our cities to the ground in the name of equity!

    Christ, what a fucking mess.

    ” Of course, the pharmaceutical companies are front-and-center in the mix.”

    Of course they are! This week in Oregon we are learning about how the pharma companies (Johnson & Johnson) have been slinking around the statehouse and meeting with the Governor’s wife.

    Due to these meetings, and since the wife is not a paid position, the Governor’s very qualified team repeatedly asked to have her sign the same required legal documents as all staff. The Governor refused.

    As a result all five of the Governor’s top staff resigned in the last month.

    This is all being reported on by the Pulitzer Prize winning Nigel Jarquiss of Willamette Week. In 2015 his reporting brought down Governor Kitzhaper for his wife’s dealing. Retroactively he also brought down Governor Neil Goldshmidt and set the record straight on what a disgusting individual he is.

    Of interest is The Willamette Week newspaper is published by Richard Meeker who is the husband of the state’s outgoing Attorney General Ellen Rosenbaum.

    Kotek won by a thin margin due to a third party candidate. She has few allies and has obviously made many enemies. Her wife has zero qualifications to meet with pharmaceutical companies other than being an easy mark to corrupt.

    What I have come to understand about “engineered pathogens” is that that notion is a part of the fraud and fear porn. Besides one need not create an infection-inducing, disease-causing germ (no evidence that this is possible) since there do exist a whole array of poisonous, toxic substances, EMFs, and PSY-OPS to carry out the insidious, evil agenda.
    Other than that, this essay is an excellent depiction of the shituation.

Or better yet, commit suicide and get it over with if your that terrified of getting caught.

    Here’s part of what I was trying to post about in my lengthy rant that disappeared.

    Taxpayers are paying for NGOs in Ukraine that are portraying anyone in this country who is critical of the war as being a Russian propagandist, and claiming that the people (like RFK Jr.) who say the war was close to being ended early on fell for disinformation.

    Here’s a video made to counteract the “Russian lies”. Also notice the similarity, the guy speaking says he can tell us in “under four minutes”
    and Zelensky claimed he could tell Trump in just 25 minutes why the Trump peace plan would not work.

    Almost as if these speeches were written by the same source:

    “Dmytro Kuleba: Ukraine and Russia were close to a peace deal in spring 2022 but Ukraine rejected it? This is one of the favorite lies promoted by Russia and its sympathisers to shift the focus… and blame. However, a closer look at the facts reveals that the whole story does not hold water.”

    reddit.com/r/ukraine/comments/1crlstt/dmytro_kuleba_ukraine_and_russia_were_close_to_a/

    The guy also mentions Boris Johnson. Boris has just been praising President Trump for his helpfulness in getting the aid bill passed.

    So, Boris and Lindsey were working with Trump on this and anybody thinks something good can come of it?

    I have a nagging suspicion that they flattered Trump into going along by acting as if he is still the president.

            Look at all the people who willingly pay more for a home in a “good” school district.

            It’s not so much the taxes as the outright theft and the level of perceived fairness.

    In my opinion, this WHO treaty is a continuation in a series of treaties that started in 1991, after the destruction of the USSR, in the US attempt to create a New World Order, based on corporate power, and enforced by the US.

    They started with NAFTA, then the WTO, which was openly pursued and shut down by the Teamsters and the Turtles at Seattle, then by the South Korean farmer immolating himself at the Cancun meeting, and then one other one.
    OK, that didn’t work. So they got Obama in, started on the TPP, and Obama made the whole thing top secret, threatening to jail any US negotiator who talked about the provisions.

    Luckily, negotiators from other, less repressive countries, talked, and people organized against it.
    Trump tore it up on his first day of office.

    So now we have this power grab, under the name of public health, run by the WHO out of the UN, but obviously under control of the US and Big Pharma.

    Did you know that the US is bribing 100 countries to sign the deal?
    Your tax dollars are going to make sure that you will be enslaved by Big Pharma, with Tedros running the operation that you can see.

    Meryl Nass is a one woman anti-bioweapon, anti-WHO treaty force of nature.
    She has organized citizens to talk to their state attorneys and to their Rep senators, and to anyone who will listen,

    Thanks to Jim for bringing this to the attention of a wider audience.

    I note that the discussion was immediately siderailed by the Newest Thing.
    There is a meme going around which shows a NPC wearing a mask, holding a BLM flag, with a needle sticking out of his arm.
    It says “I support the next thing.”

    It is blindingly obvious to me that the whole Genocide in Gaza uproar is the next thing, and it has been very successful, even drawing in people who scoffed at the Last Thing the purple-haired, nose-ringed, rainbow-masked children were out rioting about.

    Focus, people, focus!!
    They are planning an actual genocide here, and they are working on a more lethal, more transmissible virus in those 300+ labs the US runs around the world.

    The whole “There are no such things as viruses” is a psy op, designed to fool the gullible, in order to distract their attention from the vitally important goal of shutting down all those labs.

    They can’t spread a more dangerous virus if they can’t develop one.

        Good information, thank you!

        Also, CFNers,

        the Prime Minister of Slovakia, ROBERT FICO, who remains in serious condition after an attempted assassination,

        He was disliked (and demonized by the losing party in Slovakia) and accused of being “pro-Russian” because he questioned how it was in Slovakia’s interest to be involved and stopped sending arms to Ukraine.

        A lot of people are saying this demonization, this visceral Russia hatred, poisons discourse and increases the chance for violence.

        ALSO, regarding today’s CFN essay, Fico has publicly asked about the “increase in cardiovascular-related deaths since the COVID shots were implemented” and called out people “who deny this, who continue to say the COVID shots were the best thing ever”.

        So, along the lines of a “medical dictatorship”, it is possible that his assassination attempt was an effort to silence his views on the dangerous, unproven, ineffective shots. Or Russia. Or both. Russia gets the attention, I just wanted to point out the COVID angle.

        I found this info on pronews.gr, and a commenter on today’s duran video on PM Fico said the same thing–that Fico was a COVID skeptic.

        I hope and pray Mr. Fico makes it and has a full recovery.

          I heard that the bullets were small caliber, and that some missed him. That may be how he survived.

          But yeah, going up against Big Pharma and the WHO treaty, on top of refusing to go along with the attacks on Russia, add up to some potent reasons that a “lone nut gunman” went after him.

There is a good video and explanation of the whole COVID 19 deal and 5G and how they work on Natural News, if I may plug an outlet. It explains in one part how various diseases and/or cancers will pop up in diverse places around the country, all seeming to be random occurrences, but actually activated by 5G.

        pfizer has now settled 10,000+ lawsuits for cancer effects of the fake vaxx; most plaintiffs signed NDAs but some are talking anonymously and stating that they get all medical bills paid for and a few thousand us$s; Some think pfizer should get lead in return for their efforts.

      Question to Paula or any of the docs or those in the know:

      It has been reported that the avian flu has jumped the species barrier and has now been contracted by mammals and a human being (at least one).

      Will those with compromised immune systems from the experimental RNA shots be particularly vulnerable in such a case if this spreads?

      • Paula D May 17, 2024 at 1:03 pm #

        I don’t think that they actually managed to get bird flu to jump to humans.
        That is why they are pulling the “But first it went through a cow” bullshit. And the human that supposedly got it had symptoms of a runny nose, or something like that.

        Remember the bat, pangolin, ferret, human nonsense they told us last time?

        I don’t know how many people who took the shot have compromised immune systems.
        I think a lot of them got saline.

        But we will find out, because they will release another bioweapon.
        They already told us there will be another. That is called foreshadowing.

        • tuco22 May 17, 2024 at 1:24 pm #

      And treaty law, or trade agreement law, usurps a country’s native laws. Most of the hoi polloi don’t know that when Bill Clinton unconstitutionally signed us onto the NAFTA trade agreement, trade agreement law usurped American constitutional law. That’s what Biden’s been doing his past three years in the oval office, implementing climate change treaty law into the American legal system.

    The failure of the Vaxx is actually the failure of the mRNA technology. Messing with the body at the nuclear DNA level is messing with God Himself. Messing with DNA wrecks the hormonal, electrical and chemical control systems that keep the three trillion cell human body regulated and working well. Messing with DNA is a death sentence for a significant percentage of the population.

    The “geniuses” of medical research thought they had a real winner with mRNA, it was going to cure DNA level disease like cancers. Covid was their chance at “proving” their technology on a large part of the population.

    Trump, Pence, Fauci or Birx violated the Hippocrates directive, First, do no harm. Money and power and a belief that humans know better than Mother Nature (God) led us right into the disaster of Covid and its Vaxx , both human developed.

    Anything resembling messing with the DNA structure should be outlawed globally, not encouraged. Good job for WHO.

    I do believe that we dodged a bullet with Covid. It’s enhanced performance only covered it ability to spread, its mortality was a giant disappointment for the PTB. It’s vaxx,as I believe was developed in concert with itself, and the PTB panicked with its initial spread and the fear caused by it.

      No, they didn’t want a deadly disease since it would kill them too. Covid was for the Vax, not the Vax for Covid.

    • OG May 17, 2024 at 1:33 pm #

      For a smart man, you sure get a lot wrong, JAZ.

      mRNA is not a failure. mRNA is a roaring success. The death toll is right on schedule and cancers are now going exponential.

      You sheeply give the benefit of the doubt to the people that obviously engineered it all. They just goofed it, right? Too arrogant and greedy to do a good job. Certainly not evil. They really were trying to grow us from 8 billion to 9 and then 10 billion. They really were aiming to cure cancer so that us “useless eaters” would live even longer still.

      It is to laugh. Wanna buy a bridge?

      TPTB never panicked. They pulled strings and waited. They’re ready for their Disease X … or, at least will be once “Joe Biden” signs US sovereignty over to Tedros.

      John, they knew 30 years ago that this is what mRNA technology would do.

    Ah yes, the pandemic treaty. I’ve heard that the whole point of the treaty or “treaty” is to essentially nullify all of those pesky rules and regulations on medical and pharma experimentation on humans. Basically that Ethiopian man at the WHO can tell each person in the world what medicine they can and cannot take. And ultimately their goal is to release nanobot swarms into the humans that they want to keep alive for their subhuman slave race. The nanobots will literally control the thoughts and beliefs of the underhumans so that they are always optimally programmed for their slave existence. Nobody will be able to even think of creating anti-authority memes because the nanobots will always be watching and will literally stop the neurons from firing so that you can make a joke or lol.

      The Pandemic Treaty is also a trade agreement. They didn’t kill off enough black and brown people with the covid vaxx, partly because there wasn’t much ‘vaccine’ available for them and partly because they were more concerned by the usual tropical diseases to have much time left to fret about a cold.

      This time around, western countries are to be bound to donate 20% of their health budget, in times of a plandemic, to get ‘vaccines’ to those more resilient black and brown folks, so that they can share in the joys of heart attacks, cancer and general democide.

      A smart trick, because the usual corrupt agents in those countries will be happy to get a slice of the commercial pie. One imagines that those who speak out will be Magafuli-ed in short order.

      • SoftStarLight May 17, 2024 at 2:11 pm #

        That does match with recent comments from one of the grand poobas at WEF who said that developed countries with declining populations are going to “fare better” in the coming years. I think he was commenting on AI and automation but we know they think in a very holistic manner or at least they attempt to. And they do often go on about how sub-Saharan Africa is a thorn in the side of the depopulationists though they are never that completely direct.

        • GreenAlba May 17, 2024 at 2:43 pm #

          Well, SSL, on the subject of depopulation, here’s an interesting article from Agent 131711 on Substack.

          chemtrails.substack.com/p/ivermectin-and-population-control

          It’s a deep dive into ivermectin as a depopulation agent. I’ve heard that briefly before but didn’t look into it. I can’t remember if it’s a rabbit hole that CFNers have been down already.

          It’s a fascinating article, anyway – 25-minute read, according to the author.

          If this were true, Ann Barnhardt would have a hissy fit. She was pushing ivermectin like it was the holy grail (I bought a pile of it at great expense and now have no idea where I’ve put it). And she doesn’t like anything that even smells of birth control, let alone depopulation.

          • SoftStarLight May 17, 2024 at 7:09 pm #

            Oh wow, I hadn’t heard that about ivermectin before so I’ll have to check it out. Perhaps a little helpful gnome misplaced it for you if it is so bad. A friend of mine saw gnomes pretty often in her childhood but in her particular case the gnomes were not good news and instead seemed to be aligned with the dark arts dark force energies.

      • Yirgach May 17, 2024 at 5:54 pm #

        The “black and brown” people of Africa were more “resilient” because of their concurrent use of HCQ (Maleria) and Ivermectin (River Blindness) both “white” drugs BTW which just “happened” to work against the CoVid and were viciously suppressed by those infected with TDS causing the death of millions in the Western world.

        • Yirgach May 17, 2024 at 6:08 pm #

          Actually people with dark skin are much more susceptible to disease (ie less “resilient”) because their melanin level blocks the natural development of Vitamin D3 (as much 20000 IU in the upper mm of skin tissue).

          This is why it is so very important to supplement Vitamin D3 during winter months as well as Vitamin K2 (reduces Calcium buildup) no matter what color you are and get out into the open when Nature allows!

          • GreenAlba May 17, 2024 at 7:55 pm #

            I just lost a 74 year old friend who had been diagnosed with mitral valve leakage a few years ago. Eventually she would need a valve replacement. The condition requires annual monitoring with EKG and echo cardiograms until it degrades enough that a replacement is necessary. Nowadays, not a big deal.

            However she was very much into alternative medicine and did not trust allopathic (western) medicine. Despite some pleading from me to monitor she eventually went to an alternative healer for treatment as the condition became more acute. After a few days a wellness check found her deceased in her bed after suffering a heart attack while asleep.

            Please be careful and understand that what you are reading on the Internet may be wrong or obfuscated, especially if you do not have a real science based background.

            It could affect your life…

          • GreenAlba May 18, 2024 at 7:58 pm #

            I know very little about alternative medicine. I worked for 20 years for the world’s biggest scientific and medical publisher and used to mock alternative medicine (we published that too, but I preferred to work on ‘real’ medicine’).

            However, I will avoid hospitals like the plague in future since becoming aware of:

            (a) the use of Midazolam and morphine in UK and other hospitals to murder patients and call the deaths ‘covid’ deaths (more likely to happen if you are over-65 or disabled at any age);

            (b) the application of DNAR notices without permission from either the patient or their relatives, with the same effect;

            (c) the refusal to cancel DNAR notices when patients or relatives protested;

            (d) patients being put on end-of-life care when they only came to hospital with breathing difficulties (and therefore just needed oxygen). End-of-life care (previously known as the Liverpool care pathway, which was allegedly discontinued but was just renamed end-of-life care) involves starving patients and depriving them of fluids, then administering lethal quantities of benzodiazepines, combined with opiates, mostly Midazolam/morphine, as specifically contra-indicated in the BNF (British National Formulary), in order to finish them off.

            Please be careful and understand that what you are reading on the Internet may be wrong or obfuscated, especially if you do not have a real science based background.

            Please be careful not to patronise me like that again. Thank you – much appreciated./

            My husband took a booster of the allopathic medicine known as the covid not-vaccine and collapsed unconscious on our kitchen floor some time later. He was hospitalised and had to be followed up by a cardiologist for 8 months. I told the cardiologist about the booster (multiple people I know went the whole hog and died of heart attacks or turbo cancers after their covid boosters) and she ignored me.

            Confidence in allopathic medicine? Don’t make me laugh.

            My husband is a doctor, by the way. He’s stopped taking covid not-vaccines and useless and dangerous flu vaccines as well.

            The post about my deceased friend was general and not directed at anything you said.

            BTW, no one in our family has been jabbed by the mRNA drug.
            That’s because we have all worked in medical related careers, mostly in drug resistant TB research for the last 30 years.

            We know what it takes to develop a safe drug, like Ivermectin and we would never take one labeled as experimental. They all have known issues and all these issues have odds. Just like life, eh?

            We do see doctors and take some treatments when needed.

            For instance I had an Aortic valve replacement a few years ago. If it hadn’t been replaced I would be just as dead by now as my dear friend.

            You have to have enough knowledge about a subject to know that there are things about it you don’t know.

            Best.

          I think you need to read the article that I referenced above.

          It covers river blindness and so on, as well as the alleged infertility aspect.

          chemtrails.substack.com/p/ivermectin-and-population-control

          It’s very detailed but will only take half an hour of your life.

          I fell for the ivermectin story too, but it’s not sounding quite as kosher as it did. Those who deceive us do so in in a multi-layered fashion. Getting us to take something by telling us we’re not allowed to have it is Manipulation101. Mike Yeadon has been saying for ages that ivermectin is part of the psyop. Oh, and re hydroxychloroquine, there’s something in the article about mosquitos and malaria too.

          • Yirgach May 17, 2024 at 10:19 pm #

            Thanks for the article on from the chemtrails substack.
            Quite dense. I note that one of the many references found that a tetrogenic response at a dose of 121mg/day. Good thing that recommended dose is 3 mg.
            It actually completely eradicated river blindness. Oh the horror!

          • GreenAlba May 18, 2024 at 8:07 am #

            I don’t think the recommended dose is 3mg. For a start, the dose is variable, as it depends on your body weight.

            My ivermectin pills are 12mg.

            Curing river blindness is great (if it’s true). Not so good if it cures your river blindness (maybe) and makes you infertile.

          • Yirgach May 18, 2024 at 11:57 am #

            Like most medicines of this type the recommended base dose if used to compute a daily dose based on body weight. This dose is derived from toxicology studies and is standard practice. Here is the dosage table from the Mayo Clinic:

            Each tablet contains 3 milligrams (mg) of ivermectin.

            Weighing 85 kg or more—150 mcg/kg of body weight taken as a single dose.
            Weighing 65 to 84 kg—4 tablets taken as a single dose.
            Weighing 45 to 64 kg—3 tablets taken as a single dose.
            Weighing 26 to 44 kg—2 tablets taken as a single dose.
            Weighing 15 to 25 kg—1 tablet taken as a single dose.

            The chemtrails substack article seemed to omit this basic fact.

        As SSL says, slavery is inherently evil.

        But, in places like Virginia – as I understand it – before there were black slaves, there were white slaves. White slaves owned by white people; white slaves owned by black people; black slaves owned by black people; black slaves owned by white people.

        And that’s before you start on the Barbary pirates and so on.

        The Greeks and Romans had slaves. Every civilisation that was anything had slaves.

        Moving to a system that was overtly and predominantly white owning black was a stroke of genius on the part of the Deceivers, as it added a new layer of strife that would echo down the ages.

    Barnhardt

    Harrison Butker steps to the front – whether he realizes it or not. Butker is now a key leader of the Catholic Remnant.

    If you haven’t watched KC Chiefs placekicker Harrison Butker’s commencement speech delivered at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas yet, you should. It’s an absolute tour de force. Butker fears NO ONE, and I say that not because he went after the cult of sodomy, or the recent so-called Antisemitism laws. I say that because he went after something that is controversial even within the Trad Catholic Community: “Natural” family planning, aka “Catholic Birth Control.” Like I said, the guy is an absolute unit.

    A key theme is Butker’s speech is “staying in one’s lane” in the sense of living out one’s vocation or station in life, fulfilling one’s own responsibilities, and not incurring into “lanes” that aren’t yours.

    I hear this, and broadly agree. HOWEVER, I would hope that Mr. Butker also consider that Our Lord does sometimes call people “out of their lane”, and asks them to do unexpected and occasionally even great things. If St. Peter and St. Andrew had “stayed in their lane” as fishermen, and likewise with the other Apostles, and they humbly declined to go conquer Rome and spread the Gospel to the corners of the earth because such an undertaking was “out of their lane”… well. I don’t need to say how catastrophic that would have been.

    The same goes for such giants as St. Catherine of Siena, perhaps the best example of a person “not staying in her lane” – to put it mildly.

    God works in mysterious ways. He does WHAT He wants, WHEN He wants, WHERE He wants, HOW He wants, WITH WHOM He wants. He pulls people out of their lanes quite a bit, and uses the seemingly “unqualified”, and CERTAINLY “uncredentialed” precisely in order to prove a point and manifest His omnipotence and goodness. And so, here we sit today in May of ARSH 2024, and the placekicker of the KC Chiefs is THE current voice and de facto leader of the Remnant Church Militant.

    We are in a war, and all of the Flag Officers are either: Dead, Traitors, Cowards, AWOL, injured or imprisoned. So what happens? You just keep working down the chain of command. If the General is out, then it falls to a Colonel. If there’s no Colonel, then to a Major. If no Major, then to a Captain. If there be no Captains, then to a Lieutenant. If there are no Lieutenants, then to a Sergeant Major. If no Sergeant Major, then to a Sergeant. If no Sergeants, then to a Corporal. If no Corporals, then to a Private. When a situation is so dire that you get down to the level of a Private having to step into a leadership position, natural leaders within a squad EMERGE. Or, it could be said that God “raises men up.”

    Mr. Butker is wealthy from his lastest 5 year, eight-figure compensation package with the Chiefs, AND he is already a diversified entrepreneur. If the NFL cuts him tomorrow, which is possible given the media uproar, and the frothing, spittle-flicked nutty that the Uber-promiscuous autotuned pop tart cult leader, Taylor Swift’s minions are throwing, Mr. Butker will probably chuckle and shake the dust from his sandals. All the more reason for him to consider the very clear fact that he is now, already very much one of, if not THE most forward leader of the resistance to Clown World, aka the cult of Antichrist.

    Jarek: Ecce homo? Baby, it’s you. You are the one who chooses to accept the Bible or another scripture, or science, or nothing at all. As Nasruddin said, You are the master who makes the grass green.

    If your commanding officers fail or fall, it falls to you. That’s the Anglo-Saxon way.

      In what way is the lack of having the Christian religion around a catastrophe? For the Jews, for example, not having Christianity around would have made their lives *far* more pleasant. Also, what would have been so bad about not having the 30 Years War because there was no Christianity around to create civil wars in the first place?

      “We are in a war, and all of the Flag Officers are either: Dead, Traitors, Cowards, AWOL, injured or imprisoned. So what happens? You just keep working down the chain of command.”

      You “Christians” have been fighting among each other since the first century and making fools of yourselves. But the bloody battles didn’t really begin until the Great Schism happened and Christians chose to hack each other to pieces over doctrinal disputes. Your wars are getting old and tiresome. Why not give up and stop wasting your time fighting senseless battles?

      “God works in mysterious ways. He does WHAT He wants, WHEN He wants, WHERE He wants, HOW He wants, WITH WHOM He wants. He pulls people out of their lanes quite a bit, and uses the seemingly “unqualified”, and CERTAINLY “uncredentialed” precisely in order to prove a point and manifest His omnipotence and goodness.”

      Isn’t it amazing that God can do all those things? Yet if you ask him to do something simple, like showing himself to the public and proving once and for all that he exists for all time – he always refuses us that simple courtesy. Why? Could it be because he doesn’t exist?

    “The agreement… will cede what’s left of your liberty to this unelected bureaucracy… more lockdowns, constant surveillance, forced ‘vaccinations,’ restrictions on medications, and censorship of anyone who voices a contrary opinion… a second crack at controlling everything you do and every choice you might make by a cabal of… fascists.”

    First of all… any current appearance of ‘Freedom’ in ‘The Indispensable Nation!’ is just that – mere appearance. It is an empty shell of mirage without actual substance.

    With the ‘Unpatriotic Act!’ being the ‘Law’ of the Land totally taking away all of the Constitutional Rights of We the People… and various other acts of personal privacy and bodily rights erasure over the years… the only ‘freedom’ We have is to.. ‘Follow Ahwel Awe-Duhs!’ Always and forever if we are to be good and dutiful citizen serfs of ‘The Empire!’.

    And as an aside… might you foolishly think you own your home or other real estate? That’s a hot one. The Government owns all of America through it’s taxation and police and land seizure powers which fully overrule any claim you might make to ‘your property’. What do you actually own? Your yearly tax bill with your name on it so you can pay taxes to the Government for Their land. That’s the only thing that is yours. Nice, huh?

    And through various other ‘laws’ and Executive Orders… the Gov can take away ANYTHING AT ALL that you might have in your possession. Including YOU if they need you for work detail or some other reason that They want your body and labor (and soul while They’re at it). Nice #2.

    Add to this such phony and ungodly atrocities as the WHO (World Hellish Organization™) and the WEF (World Economic F*ckery™), the UN (Ungodly Nations™), and the CDC (The Center for Disease Propagation and Distribution™) and you have one huge global toxic stinking sewer pit of inhuman powers and massive citizen rape and abusive. Nice #3.

    All one can say is that if the World falls for any of this garbage even in the slightest way… then this World is not worth saving. A Planet of absolute and total dopes who won’t even act when their very lives and futures… and those of their children and futures… are at stake.

    The outcome of this horrid existential toxic mess – and Our reactions to what They are doing to us all – will definitively prove once and for all whether this Planet… and whether WE ourselves as a species… are even worth saving.

    One of the most outrageous, and unbelievable, parts of the WHO treaty is its requirement that if a country discovers a dangerous new pathogen, it is obliged to share it with all other countries, so that all may do “research on protecting” the world’s population from that pathogen.

    Um, sure, dudes. No matter how brainwashed you are, or how stupid you are, I think that anyone can see that taking a newly discovered virus out of the jungles of Papau New Guinea, or someplace, and passing it around to the bioweapons research labs of the planet, is an incredibly stupid thing to do.
    That is, if you wanted to actually protect the human (or livestock) populations of Earth.

    I repeat that there is an international law which forbids chemical or biological weapons research, passed in 1972.

    Therefore, this treaty is going against that previous treaty, and in a mind-blowingly egregious way.

    How could anyone support this? No rational or decent person could.

    That is probably why the US is bribing the leaders of those 100 countries, and why Robert Fico is fighting for his life today.

      She previously beavered away by herself, but now is kind of complementary to Sasha Latypova’s work. She has traced the legal history since about 1945 on how the current situation has been made legal (but not lawful), including, specifically how they got round the prohibition on biological weapons research by re-labelling all the biological weapons as pharmaceutical agents

      She has done lots of interviews – one here with James Delingpole, which is good.

    some of the things you read…

    The latest statistics show that the US produces about 45 million metric tons of wheat annually while Syria produces around 2 million. The US produces about 13 million barrels of crude per day, Syria produces about 35,000.

    It seems if one was in the business of stealing wheat and oil, Syria wouldn’t exactly be high on the list of targets. It sounds a lot like fat sloppy flesh balloon Michael Moore’s assertion that the Afghanistan adventure was so that some pipeline could be built (still waiting on that pipeline…) or the genocide ™ ass sponges’ claim that Israel is fighting the Jihadi vermin for beachfront resorts.

    I mean it would be like Canada, the world’s largest manufacturer of butt plugs, conspiring to steal butt plugs from Greece,
    where they are too poor and stupid to manufacture anything and use polished stones for anal penetration.

      Ummm … the USA left Afghanistan, Kinger. You know that, right? Yet you’re “still waiting on that pipeline”? You’re not exactly a rocket scientist, eh?

      Note: I’m not saying that the pipeline motive was or was not true. I’m saying that your “logic” in dismissing the theory is pure lameass.

      Personally, I know for a fact that reinvigorating Afghan heroin production (halted by the Taliban) was a key motive in America’s longest-ever war while NBC et al told us that we were there to track down a mastermind madman in a cave.

      Syria has had 660,000 (Arabs) killed so far in a Civil War that has lasted for a decade, yet posters here present the country as some sort of desert paradise. Does 660,000 people killed qualify as a genocide, or is it a genocide only when Israel is involved?

      • GreenAlba May 18, 2024 at 8:51 am #

        It isn’t and wasn’t a paradise. It could have had a thriving tourist industry, though, until its first buds were crushed – Palmyra, Crac des Chevaliers, Bosra, Apamea, the amazing souk in Aleppo, Maaloula (last Aramaic-speaking town). the water wheels of Hama, etc. etc. You’d have loved it, brh, if you could get over your prejudices.

        All that was ruined by the ‘civil war’ fomented by the US/UK. Most of those amazing places were bombed, just like the Baedeker raids in WWII. Parts of Palmyra, and specifically the Temple of Baal, were blown up by America’s proxy, ISIS.

        If you want real information about Syria, you could try Vanessa Beeley’s substack and her website, ‘The Wall Must Fall’. She lives in Damascus and reports from there.

      • Paula D May 18, 2024 at 10:55 am #

        It wasn’t a civil war, as Alba points out.

        It was a vicious attack on Syria with jihadist proxies from 80 countries, organized, trained and armed by the US. And yes, they destroyed priceless relics and ruins that had lasted for centuries before ISIS got there.

        Syria is the last secular country in the Middle East. Odd that people screaming about Muslims would support overthrowing a country that protects all religions (including that Christian town that still speaks Aramaic) in order to install an intolerant Muslim caliphate.

      “Syria wouldn’t exactly be high on the list of targets.”

      The US is imposing crippling sanctions on Syria for a war that the US caused. Sometimes people steal stuff because they just don’t want their owners to have it, not that they object to some pocket money as well.

      Any idea when the sanctions are coming against the US and UK for illegally invading Iraq and killing a million of its people, on the basis of rank calumnies? And, because the US has citizens that will believe pretty much anything, trying to link it to 9/11, which was a false flag in the first place?

      Our war criminal, Tony Blair, was made a Knight of the Garter for his services to the destruction of Iraq. Instead of being in jail for life he’s lording it at the WEF, getting high on rhapsodising about cattle-tagging the global population and injecting it with Satan-juice.

        The US refused to lift sanctions (a blockade) on Syria even after the horrible earthquake.

        They openly boast that they are starving Syrians and depriving them of the means to rebuild. The plan is to make them so miserable that they will overthrow Assad, and the US will put in a puppet government.

    Gen. Mark Milley defends Israel’s genocide by admitting that U.S. military has “also slaughtered innocent people in massive numbers”

    naturalnews.com/2024-05-15-milley-defends-israel-genocide-us-slaughtered-innocents.html

    At the recent Ash Carter Exchange on Innovation and National Security gathering in Washington, D.C., a speaking panel talked about Israel’s genocide in Gaza. One of the panel’s members, retired United States Army Gen. Mark Milley tried to defend Israel’s actions by admitting that the U.S. military is just as guilty as Israel of murdering large numbers of innocent people “who had nothing to do with their government.”

    Thinking himself to be delivering some kind of justifiable flex for mass murder, Milley revealed what many people already know well about how the U.S. and Israeli governments are mass murder machines. He also called anyone who opposes these mass murder machines “terrorists” on the “wrong side” of the fight.

    Milley did not stop there. He then proceeded to justify Israel’s gross war crimes by regurgitating tired and already debunked lies about Hamas “mass beheadings” and “mass rapes,” and comparing Hamas – an Israeli-installed government in Gaza, by the way – to “the Nazis.”

    It is almost as if Israel installed Hamas as Gaza’s government on purpose to create a crisis that Zionists could then use as justification to murder untold numbers of innocent Palestinians who, like Milley himself admitted, “had nothing to do with their government.”

    Yeah. “Almost.” Damn close.

They own our damn Government and I don’t think this is ever going to change. I really don’t care about Hamas either but do wish that there was peace over there especially so they don’t end up getting sent here.

      What’s the point in defending what Israel is doing if you’re going to just import all the Muslims here anyway? You’ll never hear me ever say “Support the troops.” My uncle served in the airforce, but he didn’t do any fighting. He worked on the planes, loaded missiles and stuff like that. Then his mind was wrecked so bad in the army that he almost threw himself off a bridge but a couple of police officers stopped him from jumping.

      And he was sent to live with my grandmother for a few years before he finally moved back to Memphis Tennessee. But the U.S. is trying its damnest to get everyone to rally behind Israel. Some people on here defend them either because they are Jewish themselves or because they’ve been brainwashed so bad they can’t really see how much of a liability that part of the world really is to the United States. We’ve been compromised by a rogue of people who just don’t give a shit…

I don’t think America is ever going to become a nation independent of supporting that side of the world…

      That’s what bothers me…. And whenever you work, you pay taxes. Your money goes toward all the stuff this country does that you don’t agree with or support. But you have no choice in the matter…If only I knew of a better place to live out my life without worrying that I’m funding shitty people and what they do with the money I earn…I would have left a long time ago.

      Milley brought up Raqqa and Mosul. He left out Fallujah, but other than that, he was right, for once.

      The hypocrisy and double standards on display are mind boggling.

      And people falling for the propaganda can’t seem to understand that they are being played. The coverage given to this particular massacre, while others are covered up, should raise suspicions. What is the agenda here? There has to be some reason the Kids in Tents have been roused to action, and the msm covers this particular war so closely.

      In terms of those caught up in this, if you care about one “genocide”, but blow off the others as inconsequential, how is that a moral stance?

They have neither the intellectual, mental, or emotional abilities to equate or to share equally with white men in any function of our civilization. I have given my life to try to bring them the advantages which our civilization must offer, but I have become well aware that we must retain this status: the superior and they the inferior. For whenever a white man seeks to live among them as their equals they will either destroy him or devour him. And they will destroy all of his work. Let white men from anywhere in the world, who would come to Africa, remember that you must continually retain this status; you the master and they the inferior like children that you would help or teach.

      The thing is Tuscon, in the West, what replaces our Jewish & Christian religions? In different places and times attempts have been made to drive the Church out, in the Soviet Union 1918-1941, and in Germany 1933-1945. Both attempts have been disastrous and have led to mass murder on an industrial scale. Mass murder seems to be the final result of governments campaigns against ‘illogical’ religion, at least so far. In the contemporary West anti-religious campaigns appear to be spearheaded by the LBGQT movement, who see the church as an impediment to their filthy Sodomy and hinders their perverted access to to young children.

        It’s not just fascism and communism. There’s the all-encompassing social-engineering agenda of the Tavistock Institute – destroying Christianity as a basis of the social fabric was one of the major aims of their counter-culture agenda, through films, popular music, education and the media.

        I recently came across Mike Williams twice, in different podcasts, talking about all of this in the context fo the Beatles, who were a Tavistock creation and didn’t even write most of ‘their own’ songs.
        Fascinating stuff. He’s been researching it for years.

        The Beatles ‘conquering’ the US was a major assault (with all that followed them) on a country that was a lot more Christian than the UK and therefore a much greater challenge to the social engineers.

        People like Tucson don’t realise the degree to which the opinions they think are their own are actually Tavistock’s.

          If you’re not familiar with the Beatles’ story … I hadn’t even heard of the ‘replacement Paul’ conspiracy until a couple of months ago.

          Paul’s alleged demise was part of a bargain with the dark side (like Bob Dylan), along with the sacrifice of John Lennon. Allegedly. Apparently Lennon tried to talk about it in the 70s, just as Dylan did in the ‘Commander-in-Chief’ interview.

          Seems the Beatles were all Masons. Williams reckons at least Paul and John were MK-Ultra-ed.

            Dangers of rock music
            6th July 1999 by Arthur Eedle

            In W.P.2 we published a Warning to parents on the dangers of certain forms of modern music, and the effect it was having, especially on the young people of today. On the same theme, we now reproduce the letter sent to Britain a few years ago by Peter Peters, Head of the Unregistered Union of Russian Churches in Moscow, and Vasilij Ryzhuk, one of the Elders. It is a chilling commentary on the Rock scene.

            “For 30 years we have suffered intense persecution, and now freedom is bringing another great harm to our churches. This damage is coming from the Christians in the West who are sending rock music and evangelists accompanied by rock bands. Our young people do not attend these meetings because we have all committed not to participate in secular entertainments.

            “This is a great burden to our hearts. Many come with Bible in hand and rock music. We are embarrassed by this image of Christianity. We do not know what words to use in urging that this be stopped. We abhor all Christian rock music coming to our country.

            “Rock music has nothing in common with ministry or service to God. We are very, very against Christian Westerners bringing to our country this false image of ‘ministry’ to God. We need spiritual bread, please give us true bread not false cakes. It is true that rock music attracts people to the churches but not to godly living.

            “We were in prison for 15 years and 11 years for Christ’s sake. We were not allowed to have Christian music, but rock music was used as a weapon against us day and night to destroy our souls. We could only resist with much prayer and fasting. Now we have a time of more openness, and we are no longer taken to prison. However, now it is Christians from the West who damage our souls. We do not allow this music in our churches, but they rent big stadiums and infect teenagers and adults with their rock music.

            “We, the leadership and congregations of the Unregistered Union of Churches, the former Persecuted Church, have made an agreement not to allow rock music in our Churches. We urge you to join with us and we advise you to remove rock music from the West and certainly to not bring it to our country. Do not desecrate our teenagers with it. Even the believers recognise it is unholy music and they cannot understand how Western Christians can be so much like the world. We can give you the conclusion that after Russian unbelievers have attended these rock concerts where Christ’s Word was preached, the people were very disappointed and disillusioned with Christianity.

            “We call this music from hell. We urge all Westerners to stop giving money for the organisation of such concerts in Russia. We want only traditional Christian music in our churches. This is the unanimous decision of all our leaders.”

            Signed by Peter Peters and Vasilij Ryzhuk

            Jarek: For your consideration. I took the rock “initiation” as well and still love it. But is it good for me? We love many things that aren’t good for us after all.

          One SS officer killed by the Resistance gave us over 600 civilians burned alive in Oradour-sur-Glane, which had no connection with the resistants.

          My former in-laws were in Grenoble. People there were also shot in large numbers for the activities of the resistants (Maquis) in the Vercors.

          • GreenAlba May 18, 2024 at 10:17 am #

          • OG May 18, 2024 at 11:25 am #

            Thx, GA. I do indeed enjoy a good historical snippet from time to time.

            It’s just that, unless I was there, I’m skeptical about any reported anything anymore. We’ve been lied to about everything for centuries. Millenia even.

          • BackRowHeckler May 18, 2024 at 2:22 pm #

            Alba there is a better precedent. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor took the lives of about 3000 US servicemen and a few civilians.. When the Army Airforce under General LeMay began strategic bombing of Japanese cities in 1944, LeMay didn’t say “When we reach 3000 Japanese dead we’ll be even & wind it up.” No, Bombs Away LeMay bombed Japan into rubble, killing 330,000 Japanese civilians before it was over.

            That’s what happens when you launch a war against a stronger opponent.

          • GreenAlba May 18, 2024 at 3:00 pm #

            More war crimes, brh. Thanks for the examples.

            Pearl Harbour was a false flag. The US knew it was going to happen and did nothing. Deliberately. If I know that, so do you.

        • BackRowHeckler May 18, 2024 at 10:56 am #

          OG, what mass murder? You certainly don’t trigger a war, then after a few month begin complaing because you are taking too many casualties. Any civilian casualties– probably about 11,000 by now — are on Hamas. Look, Gazans supported support Hamas; there was a more reasonable alternative with Fatah, but as we have seen Fatah members are being found with their hands tied behind their backs and bullets in the back of their heads. It’s hard to believe that anybody in the west would support these Hamas killers.

          Also, it’s too late for a ceasefire. There was an established ceasefire but it was unceremoniously broken on Oct, 7. Its seems rather specious to ask for another ceasefire now.

          • Socrates-Detroit May 18, 2024 at 11:50 am #

            The typical Israeli BS: random facts plus manipulation to paint a picture of a “good Israel against the bad Palestinians”.

            Well in WW2, the Germans’ rule in occupied Greece was generally 50 people killed for every German killed.

            So, by that standard, the Zionists can say “see, vee are not so bed”, since “if you believe Hamas, there are 35 (36?) thousand killed of them, 1200 of us, or about 30 for every Israeli”.

            Yes, it’s true that the people in Gaza voted for Hamas in 2006 or 2007.

            It’s also true, as others have said in the comments here (OG for one) that the Israeli government nurtured and enabled Hamas. Israel did this to delegitimize the PLO and divide the Palestinians, so Israel could more effectively drag their feet on any real solution.

            I have a pretty simple solution to the problem–one which would make both Israelis and Palestinians unhappy:

            How about Israel pull up and leave the West Bank, and take all the Israelis and their offspring after 1967 back to the UN-recognized pre-1967 border of Israel. Israel leave Gaza.

            Israel would permit a road linking the two to be used by Palestinians. Any Palestinians who veered off that road would be considered illegal or hostile and dealt with.

            Let the Gazans and West Bankers have their own country, Palestine. That means that ships and planes can land in Gaza.

            That is NOT what the US and West mean when they say “Two-state solution”. No, the US wants the Palestinians to sign away their rights and accept living like the Africans in South Africa before the 1990s, in little broken “independent” enclaves. Which is pretty much the situation in the West Bank today.

            The other “solution”, which I don’t see the Zionists agreeing to, but which the “idealists” propose is a single state where the inhabitants, Israelis and Palestinians, have equal rights with equal protections under the law.

            The Israelis have more power, money, and Uncle Sugar. They want it all–they want to eliminate the Palestinians, and that is what they are working toward.

          • OG May 18, 2024 at 12:05 pm #

            You have completely confused warring with combatants and war crimes, Heckler. Collective punishment is a war crime regardless of how pissed off you are at some terrorists (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).

            To further debate, I always answer your questions. You never answer my questions. I will try again:

            1) Given that 11,000 innocent civilians is not enough to be classified as “mass murder” (in the World According to Heckler), is there a number? 20,000 innocent civilians? Would that be “mass murder”? 50,000? 100,000? 250,000? A cool mil?

            Or is it impossible, in your little hawk brain, to even consider any amount of multiple murders of innocent civilians by Israel as being wrong?

            2) You and lying scumbag Bibi claim that 1,200 innocent Israeli civilians were murdered on 10/7. [I noticed that that number was not decreased after the ludicrous 40 baby-beheadings propaganda was easily discredited. Did you notice that? I noticed that.]

            Setting aside all the ridiculous facts about that blatantly obvious false flag event, by your own admission, Israel has now murdered 11,000 innocent Gazan civilians (so far). Is there a ratio that will sate your bloodlust or do all must die? All 2,300,000?

            Don’t deflect and talk about other things. Answer my questions. Debate like a man.

            ***
            Twelve GOP Senators, The Dirty Dozen, sent an extortion/racketeering letter to senior International Criminal Court lawyers that literally ended: “You have been warned.” for goodness sakes!

            Bibi’s bum must get chafed from all that kissin’.

            The following are complete traitorous scumbags:
            Katie Boyd Britt of Alabama
            Kevin Cramer of North Dakota
            Marco Rubio of Florida
            Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee
            Mitch McConnell of Kentucky
            Pete Ricketts of Nebraska
            Rick Scott of Florida
            Tom Cotton of Arkansas
            Ted Budd of North Carolina
            Tim Scott of South Carolina
            Ted Cruz of Texas
            Bill Hagerty of Tennessee

            3) As a proud American, Heckler, what are your thoughts on The Dirty Dozen and their completely off-the-rails diplomacy?

            I don’t know how you can argue for continued, unlimited murder of innocent civilians while ignoring this question. Man up already!

          • BackRowHeckler May 18, 2024 at 2:35 pm #

            Nothing to debate OG. Hamas challenged the State of Israel to a war, now Hamas is getting its ass kicked. That’s the long and short of it.

            I’ve noticed campus demonstrations, masses of protesters chanting “Viva Palestina”, and people complaining on the internet about the IDF isn’t helping Hamas in its campaign against Israel very much. It reminds me of the left’s “United Front” against Franco in the Spanish Civil War; massive demonstrations and fundraisers from LA to Moscow, authors from Hemingway to Orwell filling up libraries extolling the righteousness of the Republican cause, and artists in NYC, Paris & London pledging to the cause … Franco still won.

          • Land of the Banned May 18, 2024 at 4:34 pm #

            Hamas = all Palestinians, evidently. Sadly, one day ordinary Americans who hate everything about DC will pay for the sins of their totally illegitimate government too. Ask not for whom the bell tolls and all that… it’ll soon be tolling for our asses too!

          • GreenAlba May 18, 2024 at 8:28 pm #

            Very good point, Land of the Banned.

            Most of the geopolitical evil that goes on in the world emanates from the nest of vipers in the City of London (along with their comrades in arms in Manhattan).

            As a UK citizen, do I want to be held responsible for that? No thanks. But if Putin loses his patience (for example), Scotland will end up an ashtray too.

        We just finished Revelation in church and it is an eye opener for people who think that God is a weak “sister” whose word can be manipulated by a bunch of power creatures called priests, pastors or ministers. Religion is just another expression of societal power, really not very different from the government. During the Middle Ages, Rome was the global government with the Papacy dictating to kings everywhere.

        Back to Revelation. God is a judge, judging souls from all times. He is not a loving, “you kids can do whatever you want” entity that will tolerate any human behavior. He is going to “clear the decks” of the offal that humanity produces in preparation for the “new earth” that the New Jerusalem will create. Most of humanity will be estrogen in a train of killing that the return of Jesus is going to bring. Not the wimp of the Hippie crowd, but the Lion of Judah sweeping away the Power encrusted piece of crap world that we see today. God’s plan, the refuge of many, is not a kind thing, it is acceptance of folks that believe in Jesus and what He represents and the destruction of everyone else.

        OG, just like anything else, human rights require human responsibility.

        With speech and the press, that responsibility means telling the truth and not some unadulterated BS that is dished out today.

        These kids are a great representation of what happens when the two sides tell lies, attacking each other, over and over with no concern for the truth. The world is a miasma of “misinformation” that the results can be seen in the idiocy of these up and coming “adults” that do not have a clue about any Truths.

        Truths like freedom, Liberty, individual rights and responsibility, Christian values ( not the dogma BS that the church puts out, human dignity and humility, respect for human life.

        We have drifted far away from these Truths, from what Jesus actually taught, and the idiotic youth our country is producing is a very obvious result.

        No wonder Soros et al have been able to find such a soft underbelly to the USA to exploit. Power is winning over human decency.

          I believe that the ME needs to be stabilized at the benefit of some and the pain of others.

          Man has never learned to negotiate shit, that is why war is always the moderator of disputes. With the advent of 20th and 21st century weaponry, genocide is unavoidable. Islamic ideals make genocide unavoidable, like the Japanese in WW2, instead of dying for the Emperor, dying for Allah. Hamas’ charter, fed by the zealot Shia Persians, is to do that , die for Allah and push those pesky Israelis into the sea.

          The Israelis say, “When pigs fly”. And they back up their words.

          If 26 billion dollars stops the Gaza idiocy, then go for it. There is my opinion, bottom line. I also feel that the white hats are the Israelis and the black hats have always been worn by the very manipulated Palis, the people no one wants.

          Puke all over what I have written OG, I do not care. You have expressed your displeasure with Israel over and over and over. Nothing has happened! The situation must be dealt with or escalation may bring forth the hellish war that TS1986 is so afraid of. Read my later post about the Netzarim Corridor.

      @lflawse

      The topic or Mr. Kunstler’s essay today is the WHO power grab, which would allow bureaucrats (at the behest of the PTB) to cause pandemics (this bizarre sharing of viruses), mandate vaccines, and control individuals and nations.

      Part of this WHO initiative is to control free speech. Governments would be called on to suppress speech (and presumably citizens) which conflicted with the WHO.

      So, when I bring up HR 6090 –

      The Antisemitism Awareness Act of 2023 having the potential to censor and penalize free speech by deeming unpleasant truths “antisemitic” and thus criminal,

      Dr. Ness points that the WHO would “be legalizing censorship, requiring nations to monitor their citizens social media, and if they said anything that went against the WHO, suppressing it”.

      In both cases, censorship in order to control people. So it’s pertinent.

      How can one call out the WHO for suppressing facts and free speech, yet remain silent when the US Congress does the same?

    • JohnAZ May 18, 2024 at 12:11 pm #

      Yes, the bs is repetitive, but what is expected when the same Bs is generated by the BS makers everywhere.

      IMHO, the repetition is folks trying to justify and feed their egos, myself included at times. The way positions are defended over and over is the indication, some even repeat the exact same post over and over. They just cannot understand that there are more than their points of view.

    What are those IDF guys up to? What is Bibi going to do with Gaza, after the latest version of Hamas is destroyed? How is he going to control the influx of just another rearming and pre-cursor to the next shelling and “missiling” of Israel.

    A clue? Check out the WaPO article May 17, on the Netzarim Corridor. There is a method to their “madness”.

    IMHO, they are going to split Gaza in half, with the target of stopping any movement of arms or tunnels or military weapons or people across the corridor. Think DMZ. Palestinians are already getting ready to move back into Gaza City from the Rafah area. As recorded by the satellite photos in the article, the corridor will be a militarized “wall” to stop Hamas from building up again. The Palestinian civilian backdrop will no longer be trusted to stop Hamas buildup.

    The Israelis have a plan.

    Biden and the Democrat scum are showing yet again that they hate America and Americans. They plan to “resettle” Palestinian refugees (translation: Hamas terrorists) into the United States. It hasn’t been enough to allow millions of illegal aliens into the U.S.–many of them terrorists and Chinese military-age men. This is the surrogate army that Biden and Democrat scum will unleash on law-abiding American citizens before the 2024 election. If Americans actually try to defend themselves, it will be Biden’s opportunity to declare martial law, suspend habeas corpus, “postpone” (translation: eliminate) the 2024 election, and start sending any American who opposes the Democrat regime to the death camps.

    Actual, real Americans (not Democrat scum-supporting dorks and their evil leaders only pretending to be Americans) have had just about enough of following the rules when America’s Democrat scum ignore the Rule of Law constantly. The Democrat scum elites are rapidly approaching that “f*** around and find out” moment when they get taught that trying to destroy a Republic may cost them everything, including their lives.

    Conservatives, and ex-Democrats like Tulsi Gabbard have been warning that the Democrat Party is now fully anti-freedom, anti-American, and is purely evil. Sadly, pure evil is seldom able to be defeated peacefully, as the evil itself is inherently murderous and violent.

      I agree with you 100%.

      However,

      That side believes in what they are shoving down our throats, that the government is supreme, that the government knows all and must care for the masses, that their quest for power is justified by taking care of us.

      That is the mode of the Democrats. The Dem PTB use this as a way of acquiring and maintaining power, and they have been very successful at creating a population of gimmes, ie dependent people who look to that group as their source of sustenance.

      We have changed from a nation of go-getters into a bunch of service sector nebbishes waiting for the next minimum wage increase, SSA COLA, or union power grab with wages. Manufacturing zeal is now overseas. We wonder why the ambition to excel has moved with it.

      The Deep State is responsible 100% for the change. Led by the Dems, RINOS provide the majorities the Left needs to push the power driven enfeeblement of the country.

      Young people today should learn Russian or Chinese. Heck, in this country, even a common language is not in place.

    Posted on May 17, 2024The American Right Grows Up
    Gregory Hood, American Renaissance, May 17, 2024

    Auron MacIntyre, The Total State: How Liberal Democracies Become Tyrannies, Regnery, 2024, 208 pp.

    The American Right talks about power, realism, and human nature. It acts politically like a naïve child. The American Left talks about equality, empathy, and compassion. It acts politically like a single-minded tribalist.

    There are many reasons for this, but part is ideological. In one of his most overlooked and yet important articles, “The Other Side of Modernism: James Burnham and His Legacy” (1987), Sam Francis argued that the American Right did not so much fail to develop an intellectual framework to challenge the Left, but abandoned one. It took refuge in religious fantasies and libertarian delusions rather than develop the modern and realistic worldview of James Burnham. “The Left perceived that Burnham’s inversion of modernism was a far more serious threat to it than the anti-modern traditionalism that many conservatives represented,” he wrote. His warning was prophetic: “Among contemporary conservatives only James Burnham offered a theoretical framework and a practical application of modernist political ideas that challenge the conventional modernist categories as defined by the Left.”

    Yet, a “Machiavellian” tradition of power relations and self-interest can seem unsatisfactory. The Left’s messianic appeal is real, which is why its followers can be driven to heights of frenzy. A political tradition that emphasizes that nothing exists except the coldly realistic is, itself, uninspiring, which is why Burnham accepted the power of myth. To urge the American Right to “give up” on its own political myths is to ask it to deny itself.

    Sam Francis died with his work tragically unfinished, but his book Leviathan is the closest we have to a complete political testament. It is a detailed analysis of the way managerial elites engineer us from the top down in the system the media call “Our Democracy.” Many white advocates who know Sam Francis from his pithy, sarcastic, and scathing polemics on racial politics might find an academic tome on James Burnham’s political theories surprising or even boring. For “normal” conservatives, however, Francis’s work on power dynamics is safer to discuss than his racial politics.

    President Reagan giving James Burnham the Presidential Medal of Freedom, February 23, 1983.

    Mainstream American conservatives, however, still take refuge in myths about the Constitution, limited government, or the promise of a restoration under a political savior. The result is that American conservatism is either intellectually unserious or on the fringe. Sam Francis’s warnings about the intellectual failures of the American Right are as relevant now as they were 40 years ago. We need a conservative writer from the mainstream to get conservatives to think seriously about power, rather than someone from the Dissident Right offering another outsider critique.

    The Total State by Auron MacIntyre is therefore the most important book on the American Right this year. It is a sort of NeoReaction 101 for conservatives, with Mr. MacIntyre leaning heavily on the work of Curtis Yarvin, Bertrand de Juvenal, Nick Land, Joseph de Maistre, and Gaetano Mosca. Yet it is not just a simplified, popularized version of the Dark Enlightenment for “normie” conservatives. Mr. MacIntyre is a talented writer who is familiar with academic theory but can follow up a sophisticated argument with a polemical summary or a powerful anecdote. Perhaps more importantly, Mr. MacIntyre is not on the fringe, and his gentle prodding of Americans, Christians, and conservatives to take their own side is very effective. The Total State is the perfect book by the perfect author to change the American Right.

    The author is a former journalist and writes that “watching firsthand as journalists completely altered events and details to fit their pre-selected narratives” was “eye-opening.” He accuses them of not just twisting their subjects’ words but making them up or outright lying (11). My own view is that the media are the regime because shaping public opinion from the top down is what democracy now is. Mr. MacIntyre says that whatever was happening in politics, and whatever theory said about the way government should work, “the media narrative seemed to dominate all other priorities, shaping people’s actions in ways I had never thought possible.” This is not just another book whining about a “biased” media; it explains that willful deception by journalists is the tip of the spear for the entire system.

    This system serves power, but it is not a simple command-and-control model like a “fascist” organization. “No shadowy cabal of overlords was handing down marching orders; no editorial meeting was held confirming an anti-Trump direction, but every low-level propogandist with a journalism degree suddenly thought it was their solemn duty to destroy the orange menace,” he writes. “No falsehood was too great, and any and every distortion of the truth could be justified in the name of damaging what these zealots saw as the second coming of Adolf Hitler.” (12) Conservatives must understand the cruelty of “the press and the ruling class they represented” and their eagerness to “exploit and destroy what they saw as backward hicks for fun and profit.” Yes, they really do hate you, and yes, what is being done to you is done on purpose.

    The book answers many questions: Why did the Constitution so completely fail to limit government action during the COVID pandemic? Why were some Americans forbidden to attend church or go to meetings while others got free reign not just to rally but to riot? Why does the GOP refuse to take up even popular causes? Conservatives must wake up; their beloved constitutional republic does not work.

    Who is the “ruling class”? Mr. MacIntyre answers in terms of its institutional role — an answer of “what” rather than “who.” This is one way of approaching the problem, but some will see it as unsatisfactory.

    The “who” is important. Mr. MacIntyre repeatedly asserts that power always seeks to centralize. We know that the federal government tries to limit what is discussed online, to the point of demanding that specific people be deplatformed. The New York Times pushed the “1619 Project” to give Black Lives Matter an academic veneer. “When Harvard comes to a conclusion on an issue of public policy,” writes Mr. MacIntyre, “Yale is soon to follow, the media quickly reports the findings, government bureaucracy implements them, and schools are teaching them in short order.” (29)

    If I have one quibble with this book, it is that The Total State claims that power centralizes but also that we live under a “decentralized atheistic theocracy,” in which “progressive liberalism” has swept through institutions, taken on a life of its own, and become useful to those seeking status and power. My own view is that this process is more consciously directed. We have seen an actual split at Ivy League colleges because of the pro-Palestine protests, with elites fighting over policy and personnel decisions rather than all following a universally understood program.

    However, Mr. MacIntyre is right that modern progressivism is essentially religious. Paul Gottfried called our system a “secular theocracy” in 2004 in Multiculturalism and the Politics of Guilt, and it may not even be accurate to call it “secular” after 2020, when churches of all denominations prostrated themselves before George Floyd. Mr. MacIntyre identifies universities as the “churches” of the new regime and cites Curtis Yarvin’s model of the “Cathedral” — a “decentralized network of organizations and individuals responsible for manufacturing a cultural consensus” inside universities, the media, public education, and the bureaucracy. Mr. MacIntyre argues that because progressivism is a kind of religion, no conspiracy is needed because “those who manufacture the narrative of our civilization” all “go to the same house of worship.” Even if Mr. Yarvin’s view that there is no conscious conspiracy were correct, he and Mr. MacIntyre are right about its ability to force ordinary people “voluntarily” to conform. Joe Sobran called the Left “The Hive.”

    Not long ago, even if we admitted that elites ruled, and “democracy” was a polite fiction, it did not mean we lived under a “total state.” Elites did not need to control all opinions, just enough to maintain power. However, the internet gave everyone a microphone and thus turned everyone into a potential threat.

    Quoting Curtis Yarvin, Mr. MacIntyre writes that we are in a total state because “everyone and everything is infused with power” and thus “everyone is either a collaborator or a dissident.” There can be no private life, not just because the personal is political, but because the internet gives everyone the theoretical ability to turn personal views into a political force.

    Despite the growth of government, the average person feels “liberated” because government took over the social obligations people once had to family or to intermediate institutions such as churches or guilds. Mr. MacIntyre argues that the modern state confiscates more taxes, imposes more surveillance, and commands more obligations than any absolute ruler of the past, but “so long as this is done while freeing the individual from traditional social obligations, not only do its citizens not feel oppressed, they see themselves as liberated.” (37) The desire to impose “neutrality” in government instead of personal rule does not lead to freedom, but builds a bureaucracy molded by incentives (including measures such as DEI) until it becomes monolithic. The absolute “liberation” of the individual leads to absolute subjugation to the state. Today, we see attempts by academics, media, and the state to “liberate” children from their families in the name of “transgenderism.” Ultimately, the more people are “liberated” and atomized, the more power flows into the hands of bureaucrats, politicians, media, and teachers.

    It is a chicken-and-egg question whether such material interests cause an ideology of “liberation” or whether the ideology leads to a class that benefits from such a system. Either way, progressives love ever-expanding social engineering that overwhelms conservative appeals to equality before the law or institutional rights. “[Progressives] believe America is a place of deep inequality, that it has reached its position of privilege due to the immoral exploitation of that inequality, and that any action taken in the pursuit of rectifying that inequality is not just permissible but morally necessary,” Mr. MacIntyre writes. “The system is bigoted in every imaginable way, and so the acquisition of power is always the first priority as this is the only way to overcome such deeply entrenched injustice.” Thus, in 2020, fighting for “social justice” was more important than normal people going to work or school. Rioters got special permission to riot, while conservatives appealed vainly to universal, individual rights.

    Some conservatives argue that the Constitution will save us, but Mr. MacIntyre shows it has already failed. “Division of powers” is pointless because each branch serves public opinion, which can be dictated by mass media, education, and marketing. “[M]aintaining power in a democratic system means maintaining control over how the populace perceives and understands the world around them,” writes Mr. MacIntyre. “As each branch of government becomes more vulnerable to the democratic process, control of power hinges increasingly on the ability to manipulate the masses.” (53) It may seem startling to conservatives to think of institutions becoming “vulnerable” to the democratic process, but Mr. MacIntyre makes this seem intuitive and natural. Manipulating public opinion becomes the only skill that matters in a democracy. Moreover, there is no purely “mechanical” system to guarantee a perfectly functioning government. A constitution is only a written distillation of what a people intuitively understands about the role of government, and if that people changes, so does that understanding.

    Auron MacIntyre

    Laws do not function in a vacuum, and it is wrong to speak of a government of laws, not men. Men always rule. Again, though, this seems to run counter to a premise of the book that the system runs almost mechanically in a decentralized way through the triumph of progressivism.

    The Constitution will certainly not save us: “Relying too heavily on a written constitution simply incentivizes a nation’s leaders to become skilled at twisting and shaping language in order to circumvent the restrictions created by the formal meaning of the words.” (57) “Wokeness,” filled the metaphysical void left by Americans trusting in the ability of a document permanently to solve existential political questions.

    Mr. MacIntyre cites Carl Schmitt on the existential nature of politics, which is ultimately about identity. A mainstream conservative citing Carl Schmitt (albeit regretting his “deeply unfortunate” involvement with Nazism) is a milestone. Yet it is necessary, and even the most liberal professor (until recently) would acknowledgment Schmitt’s importance. He dynamited the theoretical premises of liberalism, particularly liberalism’s promise to remove the friend/enemy distinction from politics by reducing it to a friendly debate in the marketplace of ideas where all parties have rights. In reality, because it is impossible to remove the friend/enemy distinction, what actually results is an “ever-expanding ideological empire,” with those who “serve to strengthen the power of the state” becoming friends and “those who seek to compete with or restrain it” becoming enemies. The “myth of the neutral institution,” or “value-free” institution lets the total state “obfuscate the advance of its own values inside the key structures of civilization.” (64)

    Carl Schmitt

    Mr. MacIntyre’s emphasis on deception, myth, and obfuscation is important because conservatives and libertarians are fooled by them. The idea of popular sovereignty is dangerous not just because it abolishes the separation between private society and the state, but because it conceals the reality that someone always rules.

    “[In theory] the people rule, and so there is less need to think about who wields supreme authority,” he writes. “Which is very convenient for those who actually do wield supreme authority.” (65) Similarly, because (in Schmitt’s view) politics derives from theology, the state becomes essentially a god and “exceptions” — when normal laws are suspended — are like miracles. Much as a miracle shows the power of God, the state of exception shows who is sovereign and whose interests are served. The Enlightenment conceit that personal leadership is a problem and politics can be reduced to a neutral system is no protection against tyranny. Instead, trusting in a mere system advances tyranny by disguising sovereignty and concealing the truth that people wield power.

    Mr. MacIntyre insists that there is no definable conspiracy or group we can point to that oversees the total state. However, citing Vilfredo Pareto and Machiavelli, Mr. MacIntyre offers a functional definition. Leaders can be classified as “lions” (conservative, capable of wielding force, favoring order) or “foxes” (skilled in manipulation of ideas, socially liberal, favorable to change). When societies mature, foxes tend to replace lions because the need for overt force declines. Mr. MacIntyre again destroys illusions by arguing that our “modern aversion to overt force” can mislead because all society rests on a monopoly of force. It may be more dangerous for people to pretend that they are exempt from this rule than bluntly to exercise power. Most people fear the truth.

    Furthermore, just because “foxes” do not often use direct force does not mean that they do not use it. They rule through “deceit” and the “manipulation of systems along with the subtle control of information and data to maintain order.” (75) Democracy makes us more vulnerable to force by “obfuscate[ing] the source of power” away from a definable sovereign to a “nameless, faceless, ever-shifting process” that can never be held accountable. I have argued for years that no society can be meaningfully “free” if there is no awareness of who is sovereign. In contrast, we are ruled by an elite that uses control of information to govern both private and public institutions, ruthlessly vets bureaucrats for ideological conformity, and selectively enforces laws depending on political agendas.

    Mr. MacIntyre links the elite to the “managerial class” defined by James Burnham and Sam Francis. He quotes Sam Francis extensively, which is gratifying for longtime AR readers. Francis said:

    The corporation must promote the homogenization of society because of the nature of mass production and mass consumption. Mass production requires not only homogenous goods and services produced by the same molds and processes, but also homogenous consumers, who cannot vary in their tastes, values, and patterns of consumption and who must consume if the planning of the corporations is to be effective. . . . Managerial capitalism must therefore articulate and sponsor an ideology of cosmopolitanism that asserts universal identities, values, and loyalties, challenges the differentiations of the bourgeois order, and rationalizes the process of homogenization.

    It is this that online rightists have taken to calling “GloboHomo,” short for Global Homogenization. It is also a dig at the homosexual rainbow flag that has become the banner of global corporations (until it was arguably displaced by the intersectional flag). The surface “diversity” preached by elites only undermines the real diversity of nations and peoples, much as the “diversity” on a college campus strengthens ideological uniformity. One can invent new sexual or gender identities or promote “pride” in various non-white races, but all these are varieties of consumerism. Instead of social mobility through independence, such supposedly diverse constituencies become client groups of the total state, its “social justice movements,” and justify ever-expanding government programs and NGO-based education programs.

    The intersectional flag.

    As a result, all levels of society are increasingly supervised by credentialed experts boasting university degrees, which Mr. MacIntyre calls “the genesis of the Cathedral,” and the origin of a memeplex of interlocking ideas that reinforce each other.

    We can see how this works every day. “Experts” are the final authority not just in education but in the military, business, policing — everything. The universal cure for every social problem is more “education” and expert supervision. “Sam Francis outlines how even the legal system has become an important battlefield in the law between the old bourgeois and the new managerial elites,” Mr. MacIntyre writes. “Just as the capitalists used the principles of ‘rule of law’ and ‘equality before the law’ to limit and deconstruct the power of monarchs in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the managerial elite seeks to shift the law towards results-based administrative procedure.” (92) Thus, trials become contests of highly credentialed (and expensive) “experts” dueling over arcane points of administrative minutiae rather than anything the Framers would recognize.

    Mr. MacIntyre credits Paul Gottfried with the concept of the “therapeutic state” — the way the managerial elite creates a continuous moral panic to justify its existence. War, crime, poverty, and other social problems cease to be part of the human condition and instead become pathologies that arise from flawed social institutions not yet under expert control. Mr. MacIntyre also quotes Sam Francis, who noted that “whether sincere or not,” the real effect of managerial political and social reforms is to ” ‘liberate’ the masses from the tyranny of bourgeois or prescriptive institutions, and to homogenize the mass population and bring it under the discipline of the mass organizations.” (94–95, quoted from Sam Francis in Leviathan) In other words, this is why almost every news story, education program, or government initiative ends with a call for more bureaucratic control and more funding.

    Humans are not all identical, so it is not always easy to control them. The state will therefore “actively seek to shape the private and public lives of its citizens in order to homogenize influences that could introduce variance an instability.” This includes replacing sin and punishment with “medicalization of deviance.” What a prior generation would call evil can be fought through therapy, treatment, and programs, with a new clergy of professors and scientists replacing priests. “Under the total state’s model of behavior,” Mr. MacIntyre writes, “humans are inherently good, with the possible exception of straight white Christian males.” Education solves every problem — which means that traditional solutions, which tell men to behave with grace and honor in the face of eternal evils, are morally suspect and a surrender.

    This means there are no inevitable tradeoffs — only errors of judgment, which encourage totalitarian rage against dissenters who stand in the way of progress. Of course, “the science” can be self-contradictory because it follows expedience, not facts. Why are sexual preferences supposedly inherent, but sex is no longer bound by biology? Why do genes set sexual orientation, but in-group preference is “racist”? Why are pedophiles “minor attracted persons” suffering from a tragic inherent misfortune, but men who desire fit, attractive women are morally deficient? Dissenters must never state an opinion, because we lack the credentials to be part of the “new priestly caste [that] will always favor the political priorities of the total state.” (102) So shut up, bigot.

    From this perspective, compulsory state-funded education looks increasingly sinister, because it is the most effective way to break children away from family ties and inherent loyalties. Nothing is inherent or sacred because everything is a question of applying the proper technique to achieve the best social outcome. “A thoroughly secularized therapeutic culture would create the narrative justification for constant state intervention through the bureaucratic application of scientifically developed courses of treatment,” Mr. MacIntyre argues. “By stripping away the natural human preference for particular cultures, religions, moral systems, and aesthetics, social engineers can create subjects that are far easier to manage.” (107)

    Human identity, insists Mr. MacIntyre, does not come from a set of rights, but from limitations. It is shaped “far more dramatically by what the individual is not than what he is free to become.” (111) This is critical, because the essential tenet of modern liberalism is that identity is invented. While the state promises to liberate man from unchosen social bonds, it actually unmakes him. This includes what Sam Francis called the “dematerialization of property and the replacement of the entrepreneurial firm as the dominant form of economic organization by the mass corporations and unions under managerial control.” In other words, the political forms and abstractions so beloved by conservatives and libertarians arise from distinctive material and social circumstances. Without them (namely “hard property and independent ownership”), those political forms cease to exist. Many conservatives will resist this conclusion, which may seem Marxist, that ideology grows out of material circumstances.

    What has been done to the (largely white) American middle class is also being done to the rest of the world. Instead of building empires, experts bring modernization and “human rights” to the benighted. NGOs and “color revolutions” mobilize constituencies eager for liberalism, thus undermining national sovereignty. Mass media manipulate public opinion. New governments owe their power not to their own people, but to the West.

    Both the First and Third Worlds are subject to the same international class of elites who have more cultural similarity to each other than to their own peoples. Mr. MacIntyre points out that this is not really Western exploitation of non-Western countries, because Western countries become just as economically dependent on the Third World, as managerial control imposes a complex, international trading system that strives to homogenize everyone. Ultimately, countries themselves become economic units at the service of international bureaucrats.

    Mr. MacIntyre’s best contribution comes from his explanation of the NRx (Dark Enlightenment) dictum that “Cthulhu swims slowly, but he always swims to the left.” He explains Robert Conquest’s three laws: everyone is conservative about what he knows best, all organizations if not explicitly right-wing become left-wing, and every bureaucratic organization can best be understood by assuming it is controlled by a secret cabal of its enemies.

    It is not merely that institutions lose track of their founding principles as time passes and systems grow more complex. It is that the mere fact of opening up foundational principles to debate serves to undermine them. “Once the core values of a social organization are up for debate, they are over.” “Once the foundational axioms of an organization have entered the realm of open discussion, it will always and inevitably move to the left.” This is true. To open discussion undermines what was once unchallengeable. Thus, even for those of us friendly to “free speech” as a principle, allowing free speech or open admissions in our own organizations may doom them. “Anyone who is not defending, maintaining, and gatekeeping the things they love and care about will watch them decay and eventually be destroyed,” Mr. MacIntyre argues. Even the most stalwart gatekeeper will fall to entropy, because chaos is inevitable. Conflict is eternal.

    This happens within corporations, subcultures, fandoms, political movements, and countries. “Once the organization has birthed a bureaucracy that can prioritize its own needs over those it was designed to serve,” Mr. MacIntyre says, “a clear split develops in the incentive structure, and that split only widens over time.” This explains Mr. Conquest’s seemingly counterintuitive third rule, and why giving more resources to a bureaucracy may make it worse at fulfilling its supposed mission.

    The interest of a bureaucrat within an organization is his own position, not the organization’s. Promoting conflict within an organization or developing a new power base leads to new opportunities for advancement. It is thus not surprising that the consistent cry in everything from politics to business and even to entertainment is that existing citizens, customers, or fans must be replaced by new “underrepresented” constituencies. The decision by a Bud Light executive to promote transgenderism to working-class beer drinkers may seem bizarre, but that executive might have made the right career move for herself.

    Mr. MacIntyre suggests that all these trends doom an organization to eventual collapse, because entropy will come for the total state, too. “It is a common misconception that regimes fall when they become overbearing and totalitarian,” he says. “Regimes fall when they have grown weak and decadent, unable to control the population through the manipulation of the fox or the force of the lion. When elites close themselves off to the natural circulation of new talent, they grow soft, and those denied access can suddenly disrupt the status quo.”

    Modern managers may not be adding value to our current institutions. “Both James Burnham and Samuel Francis would recognize that managers are essential for the operation of massified organizations, but [Alasdair] MacIntyre asserts that most modern bureaucracy is simply a product of the cancer-like growth of the managerial class and does not actually produce notable increases in efficiency,” the author says. “These layers of bureaucratic management exist only for the purpose of facilitating power.” DEI is the most obvious example. We are oppressed, but by impotence rather than power.

    Mr. MacIntyre suggest that the total state will fail because “widely different peoples spread across vast distances cannot, and will not, be governed as one unified whole.” He also cites evidence that Americans’ quality of life is declining. Obviously, race realists and white advocates welcome the view that diversity is not strength. Human nature will eventually overcome social engineering.

    However, I am reminded of Winston Smith’s feeble protest in 1984 that the spirit of man will somehow defeat the Party. The Total State has proven able to eradicate entire identifies once thought immutable (such as white Southern identity) within just a few years and legitimize practices (such as child “transgenderism”) that would have sparked revolt not long ago.

    It is also the most miserable, neurotic, and unhappy Americans who are the greatest supporters of the system. Young liberal women have high rates of depression and mental illness, but this is what makes them such reliable political soldiers. Our author reminds us of the Biblical story of the Tower of Babel about the price of hubris, but my fear is not that we are tempting judgment, but that there is no one to inflict it.

    Still, Auron MacIntyre does not offer empty comfort. His final chapter is “The Only Way Out Is Though.” He brushes aside the idea that the Constitution can somehow be restored through a Convention of States. Moreover, returning to self-government, even if it were possible, would not make Americans the virtuous people for whom John Adams said our Constitution was designed. “Liberty is the fruit of virtue,” Mr. MacIntyre warns, “virtue is not the fruit of liberty.” He also dismisses the idea that “former” liberals will react against woke extremes and restore a saner moral climate. They cannot turn back.

    Jarek: So much here. But let’s focus on this for now: Moreover, returning to self-government, even if it were possible, would not make Americans the virtuous people for whom John Adams said our Constitution was designed. “Liberty is the fruit of virtue,” Mr. MacIntyre warns, “virtue is not the fruit of liberty.”

    So much for freedom junkies like Socialist Eater and John Ass. It’s not freedom per se, but what you do with it; not the ability to choose but choosing well. If you and your partners choose to turn a thriving business into a corporation, well you have chosen badly. And countless Americans chose badly because of their greed.

    Further discussion about the ME is a waste of time now. Everything that needed to be said has already been said. These posts are incredibly repetitious. No new real information is forthcoming. People’s minds are already made up, and more comments aren’t going to change them. The Jew-haters drone on with the same disgusting rhetoric, and the Jew-defenders reply with the same counter-arguments. Frankly, I’m bored with it all.

    Where is mass commentary about other concerns? The all-Israel-all-the-time postings have the effect of shutting down relevant conversations.

    Ocean and environmental destruction, moral degradation, woke ideology, political corruption, brain-dead politicians, bleak financial futures, geopolitical threats, invasions by illegals, breakup of our country, very rapid social change, lack of effective energy solutions, artificial intelligence development, failing education standards, unhealthy lifestyles, scientific corruption .

      That’s not fair! “You either kiss Bibi’s bum or you are a Jew-hater.” “I get my way or you hate me!” What? Are you 9? Grow up.

      I sure hope that you are not calling me a “Jew-hater,” Bill.

      Being against Bibi Nutty Yahoo’s murderous policies is not the same as hating Jews. Obviously.

        Nothing to debate OG. Hamas challenged the State of Israel to a war, now Hamas is getting its ass kicked. That’s the long and short of it.

        What a cop-out!

        So there is no number, in your opinion, eh? You and Bibi Nutty Yahoo claim that 1,200 innocent Israeli civilians were killed by terrorists one (very fishy) night so now there is no limit whatsoever to how many innocent Gazan civilians that Israel, bankrolled by mafioso-acting US Senators, can murder via collective punishment. “Nothing to debate.”

        You call for the murder of thousands of innocent civilians in de facto war crimes and won’t even discuss it. “Nothing to debate.” I assumed that you were a man. My bad.

        May God mercy on your blackened soul, weasel.

        ***
        Ok. Go ahead, Heckler. Crawl in a cave and bitch that the whole world hates Jews while the whole world watches in horror what Bibi is perpetrating.

        I, for one, will keep arguing that a) this must stop and b) if it can’t be stopped, it should not be financed by the US government.

      • OG May 18, 2024 at 5:44 pm #

        BTW – I do not hate Israel. I disapprove of Bibi Nutty Yahoo’s murderous policies. Big difference to those with a logical, reasoning brain.

        ***
        Has it ever, even once, occurred to you that the entire earth is against Bibi’s actions because they are obviously collective-punishment war crimes or is it just that the entire earth is antisemitic?

        I know, I know: you won’t answer my questions. Instead, you simply ignore damning questions like they do not even exist.

        May God have mercy on your blackened soul.

          I might be worried about what God thinks, if I have a blackened soul, but certainly not what you think.

    Considering that the good old US of A literally killed unnecessarily about half a million people during the covid pandemic because the government was incapable of nabbing all the quack doctors that were lying and claiming that the virus wasn’t all that bad and it was fine to overwhelm hospitals and drive healthcare workers to almost insanity and such, and all those that were repeating their lies and putting them in jail straight away, that the WHO grabs power away from you people can only be an extraordinarily good thing. You have already proven that you are incapable of using the toilet, so let’s put you people on adult nappies. Of course, because your government and society have advanced dementia, you don’t like it, but the opinions of people who lack mental faculties should not be consulted, since they are incapable of looking after themselves.

Iron, magnesium and calcium no because of dietary changes to increase natural doses lol. Dr. Mark Hyman says if its too hard to pronounce it isn’t good for you.

      You’re welcome, SSL. I’m totally on the fence about vitamins, having read that guy’s article on what they are manufactured from. I have no idea what to believe. It’s useless asking doctors, because they just parrot whatever catechism they were taught at medical school, where they are trained to be good pharma lackeys.

      My feeling is that big pharma is so organised, in terms of its nefarious activities, that it would be really obvious for them to buy up all the supplement producers and get more poison into us that way.

        I used to take Vit C and E, until they announced that people who took them did worse than people who didn’t.

        Say what? Who woulda thought that?

        Same with fish oil. People who take it do worse.

        My basic stance on medicine is to avoid it, unless I have an ailment that needs treatment. In that case, only take a drug that has been around longer than 30 years, with well known side effects. And only take it until I feel better. None of this “Take for days after you feel better to make sure.” Yeah, to make sure I get C Diff? No thank you.

        And they thought I would be injected with an experimental drug that alters my DNA, and was not tested, but was conjectured to possibly be harmful?

        They were out of their everloving minds.

        But I could not convince my family of what seemed like common sense to me.

          Omega 3 is supposed to help prevent the blood from clotting. I have heard it suggested for those who have been vaxxed. It supposedly also helps curb depression and anxiety. So I can see where it has benefits but I think too that a lot of it has to do with how the vitamins are processed and also the dosage. It seems like a lot of the “one a days” are actually a higher dose than you truly need.

      • SoftStarLight May 19, 2024 at 3:01 pm #

      “Dr. Mark Hyman says if its too hard to pronounce it isn’t good for you.”

      Good one!

      Include Vaxzevria (AZ’s covid vaxx, now withdrawn globally) and Comirnaty (Pfizer’s covid vax, in its allegedly fully approved form, never used in the US because if they’d used it once approved, people could have sued).

      You may have missed the AZ happenings recently, because Astra Zeneca was never approved in the US. Anyway, AZ have retracted their ‘vaccine’, which was given to most Brits before Pfizer was approved, all over the world. Low sales apparently (connected to the stories of *rare* blood clots).

      Basically, AZ is to be the fall guy so that people think Prizer and Moderna are still good. I’ve always been confused as to why certain countries stopped AZ early on (and the US from the get-go) when the others were exactly the same in terms of sickness and mortality. The whole thing is theatre.

      Meanwhile Professor Sarah Gilbert, who led the Oxford (AZ) team, is now a Dame, as (I think) is the woman who was responsible for distribution in the UK (forgotten her name). And Dame June Raine, of the MHRA (medicines regulator) approved it and studiously ignored the adverse-reaction data. Three witches – double, double, toil and trouble – and nobody called to account.

        Wow that is truly crazy but not surprising since in reality many of these people are socio and psychopaths. I did hear a little bit about it but it was sorta a blip in the news stream, at least in my own experience. I’ve not paid as much attention to the covid stuff here of late. I feel that they are trying to put us into a state of crisis fatigue to lower the threshold of what we accept as normal. It isn’t normal for every day to be the Book of Revelations, however, they make it feel like the Book of Revelations is a day at the park in some ways.

    ‘The thing is Tuscon, in the West, what replaces our Jewish & Christian religions? In different places and times attempts have been made to drive the Church out, in the Soviet Union 1918-1941, and in Germany…

    Brh

    Good question gets to the heart of the matter. How many has the Church driven out or killed over the millennia?

    I don’t believe in fabrications to keep mankind in line, to check his indecency or his immorality. Again, spirituality is or should be the key. Religion is a gateway to spirituality, but it loses its way with militancy and oppression. It kills in the name of God.

    Ultimately, I guess, the beast that is mankind may never be tamed, by either religion or spirituality. That appears to be more evident than ever, and in the end, it looks like the beast will prevail.

      Hmmm, maybe believe in Jesus, in the Bible and find a church that suits your style. There are so many non-affiliated churches today that do not believe in the traditional dogma. I found one, after finding nothing in the regular “religions”.

      It looks like the beast will prevail? The Bible says he will for a while and it will take the Lion of Judah to finally throw him into the Lake of Fire.

      I do agree with you that the beast is inherent to mankind, every week, watching the news and reading the blog just hammers in that belief more.

        John,
        Thank God there are anointed super heroes that will provide succor. But…but what of other super heroes?

        Suppose I write a book, you know, like Hubbard and Joseph Smith did? I could save humanity from itself. I could call myself the “Ptarmigan of Elysium”. Assemble a great back story, generate fabled tribulations and overcome them with acts of great wisdom. Suffering? Oh yeah, by the butt-load.

        I’d give the book away for free! Print calendars with a picture of the Ptarmigan of Elysium smiling, surrounded by Seraphim and shit. I would need a homeland for my people, of course. And tithes.

        There would be many followers. a multitude. The displaced, the diaspora of Africa, seeking freedom in a place near you, our historical and ancestral birthright. You’d better leave.

      I’m still waiting for your opinion on Operation Gladio, following your assertion (as a person who thinks for himself) that NATO is a ‘defensive alliance’.

      Admittedly, you went for plausible deniability by saying ‘NATO says it is a defensive alliance’, but it was clearly an assertion that you totally bought into or you would not have repeated it as part of your argument. So not so much a person who thinks for himself, but more a person who takes NATO’s word for what NATO is. If my logic is missing something here, arrogant fool that I am, do please clarify.

      So, thinking for yourself regarding Operation Gladio, what are your conclusions, clever boy?

      From back when the BBC did actual investigations.

    On the debates, I don’t think that Trump should allow Biden to dictate the conditions. If Jake Tapper on CNN, then Hannity on Fox news.

    Trump bellows that he’ll debate Biden anywhere, anyplace, anytime.
    The Democrats adroitly counter with their terms, putting Trump in a box.

    Trump could actually lose, after Biden is given his ‘state of the union cocktail’.

    Fox news poll says it’s Trump at 49%, Biden at 48%, whatever polls are worth.

    Truly boggles the mind that it’s so close after all that’s happened.

      Have you seen Biden lately? Rump is foaming at the mouth to get him on stage with him. Shades of Nixon vs, Kennedy or Reagan vs. Mondale. I am right with you on the populace 49% to 48% shows just how many dependent gimmes the Dems have been able to drum up over the years.

      Hmmm, I wonder how many immigrants are polled? If you watch them interviewed at the border, they believe that Biden is God. And Trump is the devil.

    A lot of Jews, like pre-adolescent children, often try to get their way with: “I get my way or you hate me!”

    Like children, of course, they are usually saying this to people that actually love them very much. After all, they are hyper-emotional and really just want their way very, very badly.

    This, of course, is very concerning when their “way” is murdering thousands of innocent civilians in collect-punishment war crimes!

    Palestinians are skid marks in the underpants of history.

    “According to “Palestinian” historian Muhammad Y. Muslih, during the entire 400 year period of Ottoman rule (1517-1918), before the British set up the 30-year-long Palestine Mandate, “There was no political unit known as Palestine.”

    In 1926, the Arab Executive Committee still referred to Palestine as the unlawfully severed southern part of “the one country of Syria, with its one population of the same language, origin, customs, and religious beliefs (emphasis mine), and its natural boundaries, as I pointed out earlier.”

    Besides, the concept of a homogeneous, ethnic and disparate “Palestinian people” (endo/ethno genesis) is frankly ludicrous when one considers that through centuries of Muslim imperialism right down to the end of Ottoman Empire in 1918, caliphs and other rulers brought in hundreds of thousands of soldier slaves loyal to their pay masters.

    The Tulunides brought in Turks and Africans.

    The Fatamids introduced Berbers, Slavs, Greeks, Kurds, and mercenaries of all kinds.

    The Mamelukes imported legions of Georgians and Circassians.

    Saladin brought in 150,000 Persians who were given lands in Galilee and the Sidon district for their services.

    In the fourteenth century, 18,000 Yurate Tartars from the Euphrates were brought in, soon followed by 20,000 Ashiri and 4,000 Mongols who occupied the Jordan Valley and settled from Jerusalem south!! Mongols…

    In 1830, as a further example, Mehemet [Muhammad] Ali colonized Jaffa and Nablus (Jewish Schem before the Arab invasion and occupation…) with Egyptian soldiers and their Sudanese allies. So much so that British estimates of the 13,000 inhabitants of Jaffa, for example, ran at 8,000 Turco-Egyptians, 4,000 Greeks and Armenians, and 1,000 Maronites. The British did not consider that there were any Arabs at all in that city. ….”

    And then there’s this gem on the Soviets being the de facto wet nurses of the “Palestinian state”, basically a collection of highjackers, suicide bombers and other assorted shit stains masquerading as a political entity:

    “Chapter one of “The KGB’s Middle East Files,” a special series of articles which brings to light information mined from some 6,000 KGB documents smuggled to the West in the early 1990s, recounted the story of how Vasili Mitrokhin used his senior position at the spy agency’s archive to copy the top secret documents—with the Soviets being none the wiser.

    Chapter one of this series included a list of agents that—according to the Mitrokhin documents—operated in Israel, among them Knesset members, media personalities, senior engineers working on sensitive projects and officers who managed to infiltrate the top echelons of the IDF.

    But this was only part of the story. As we delved deeper into the secrets Mitrokhin left behind, we discerned another Soviet strategy taking shape: Not content with merely infiltrating centers of power in Israel and gathering intelligence on the Jewish state, the KGB also forged extensive ties with Palestinian terror organizations, greatly abetting their activities. In fact, the Mitrokhin documents show that the Soviet Union waged a kind of “shadow war” with Israel (and the US) for years, using those terror groups as their proxies.

    For many years, Israel’s intelligence services suspected that the KGB was aiding at least some of the Palestinian terror organizations, but these were normally general suspicions, which were not necessarily based on quality or reliable intelligence. The Mitrokhin archives prove just how deep the cooperation between the USSR and the Palestinian terror organizations was, and what a bloody cost it exacted from the world in general—and especially from Israelis.”

    Israel v the pretend land of Palestine is much like Trump v Biden: it’s not so much that you love one, it’s just that the other is a stinking cesspool of wretchedness and therefore something that no one except low T man-ginas gives a shit about.

        Pay attention, Elmo. It is JAZ and Heckler and Bill that are willy-nilly tossing around “Jew-hater” and “Israel hater.” After reading them call any disapproval whatsoever of Bibi’s murderous policies as “hate,” it occurred to me what’s REALLY going on around here.

        I don’t hate anyone while I’m trying to stop murder but I suspect that THEY may hate people whom they want murdered.

        You’re darn-tootin’ that hate is a powerful word but you’re admonishing the wrong poster vis-à-vis its use here at CFN.

I only call someone such terms after carefully reading their comments and never seeing anything other than harsh, consistent statements, and only then. And who is ‘THEY’ anyway? When have I ever advocated for murder? Did I ever say I hate Palestinians and wish them dead? Really, OG.

    That which I see/foresee are high density structures popping-up all over the place, medium income developments, and upscale and gated communities, all of which could easily have commercial services nearby (if they don’t already) to accommodate the 15 minute city concept. This will integrate/accommodate the UN 2030 SDG’s in many regards.

    Armstrong talks about the US implementing a CBDC by the first quarter of 2025. My thoughts are that this will prevent people from “gaming the system”, and from there they can implement a UBI, housing in high density structures, and access to nearby medical services. If successful, this will go a long way to satisfying many of the UN 2030 SDG’s.

    Initially, as we have seen, there will be much resistance to implementation of the 2030 Agenda. In short order, the US will be forced to address/accommodate the needs of the migrant population, and I foresee that the majority of this group will gladly accept and embrace the agenda.

    The UBI, housing in high density structures, and access to nearby medical services, will also be embraced by a segment of the homeless population, and I anticipate that this population will grow as higher taxes are imposed to accommodate the deficit spending.

    I anticipate that this bottom rung of society will ultimately comprise the majority of the population, and that over the course of several generations, the wealth will be stripped by taxation from the middle and upper class members/families.

    Some combination of achievement and a social credit score will allow individuals/families to climb the UBI ladder to slightly better living/learning accommodations, and for those misfits who refuse to integrate and play the game, well, Xi has developed a routine for dealing with them.

    People will be forced to play the game, or lose by default. Energy costs will soar, to the point where non-energy efficient structures will no longer be viable, and the residents will default to the bottom rung. Plan to heat with wood, and the government will regulate/tax/fine you into compliance. Poor quality structures will be stripped from the landscape, and then the plan for an efficient landscape/living arrangement can come to fruition (without all the obstacles).

    We need to come to the realization that the 2030 Agenda is already being implemented, and figure out how to terminate or embrace the change.

      Increase taxes for the homeless and UBI?

      I picture a wet towel that is wrung out so many times that nothing else drips out.

      • TPTB-USA May 18, 2024 at 10:58 pm #

        What if TPTB are able to bastardize all currencies in unison?

        Don’t you think that they are all ready redistributing the wealth with wars, mega projects, and migration? “Joe Biden” and Newsom are continually coming up with ridiculous give-a ways.

        $10/gal. for gas likely sends many into default. Then the downturn feeds on itself. and an ever increasing percent of the population needs a safety net. If the focus is the safety net, they could pick every last cent out of the pockets of those that have anything.

        Do you hear those that anticipate reparation payments, or student loan forgiveness, or minimum wage increase employees complaining?

    • JohnAZ May 18, 2024 at 10:00 pm #

      And no, your goals are Un achievable in a country that is over its head in debt. The government is spending less year after year on necessities, and cannot afford anything new. In the meantime, the interest payments are over a trillion now.

      Your goals are admirable though.

      BTW, is there such a thing as sustainable development? Or will the expense of living required make the poverty classes even poorer.

      • TPTB-USA May 18, 2024 at 11:13 pm #

        If all countries participated, who is to say that they can’t change the rules on how a currency functions? Throughout the world, they have continually devalued currencies.

        I would suggest that high density housing could qualify as sustainable development, versus upgrading shantytown.

        And, you need to reckon with the fact that they aren’t my goals.

        Open your mind John. There are plenty of options for a government to force it’s citizens into compliance.

        • JohnAZ May 19, 2024 at 12:07 pm #

          I agree on your last.

          However, where to get the taxes? There is not enough wealth in the upper one percent to build any kind of indigent housing of any consequence. Plus the fact that the people getting the homes have a record of tearing them apart with time. Poverty rate of 10%, and I think that is low.

          30 million / 4 per family 7.5 million dwellings.

          Figure conservatively $50K per dwelling,

          375 billion dollars. What do we give up to fund this? And again, remember that this is depreciable as they deteriorate.

          Money, wealth is labor, man-hours. It is not a piece of paper out of a printing press.

          • JohnAZ May 19, 2024 at 12:11 pm #

            My mind is wide open. It is the government that does not have the capability to pay its bills now, or ever with the spend, spend mentality it has currently.

            The government creates nothing, it consumes, it re-distributes.

            It is a gigantic black hole, absorbing everything and producing nothing.

            Everything the USA has produced since WW2, all its wealth is being sucked into the black hole.

          • TPTB-USA May 19, 2024 at 3:08 pm #

            The WEF PR is that “you will own nothing …”. The population of the world would never willingly accept a one class world, therefore I suggest that the transition for the upper class will have to be gradual and take generations, and therefore the need for some medium income developments, and upscale and gated communities, which are not being developed at anywhere near the pace of the high density housing.

            “… there is a world vision (Big Picture) being offered by the left that doesn’t include big business and the wealthy class. They would be gone …”. I suspect that this is the Soros/Sanders/Warren faction.

            As you say “There is not enough wealth in the upper one percent to build any kind of indigent housing of any consequence.”, so I suggest that the wealth will be stripped from everyone, and ultimately it will be the upper one percent who suffer last (if they even get that far).

            Someone (beantownbill?) posted about the industriousness of the Mexican population. I went to a fast food restaurant, and ordered the 2 burgers for $5 special. The crew was all Mexican, working at a fast clip, never a dull moment, cleaned the restrooms and dining area when they had the time. I was off to one side of the order counter studying the menu, and the lady who appeared to be the “conductor” came over and asked if I was ready to order, I told her that I was still considering the options, and she told me to let her know if I had any questions , or when I was ready to order. Her makeup and dress was on the order of a China doll, which seemed a bit out of place, but not offensive. She struck me as knowing the menu and business inside and out, and when my order was ready, she apologized for the delay. The restrooms were clean, and the premise was not painted with graffiti. If this segment of the population is living in a crowded condition in low income housing, I can see where they would readily adapt to a NWO format for life of a UBI, housing in high density structures, and access to nearby medical services. I foresee this group being leaders in embracing the change, and then as others fall-out economically, they will follow.

            “375 billion dollars. What do we give up to fund this?” – Orban has discussed how the UN was withholding funds from Hungary for not getting with their open border policy. The estimate for “The Line” in Saudi Arabia is US$1T. Where are they getting this? Xi Van Fleet discusses being sent to the farm, and at the end of the season receives some kind of attaboy for her participation and good behavior. Goal 8. Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all. Think in terms of World Bank funding, and mega projects.

            I can see where the implementation of a credit score will ultimately condition the population to be respectful, and for those who insist on being rebels, it will be off to Uyghurville.

            This is not where I want to go, but I can see that it is where we are headed.

        “The government is spending less year after year on necessities, and cannot afford anything new. ”

        I believe the intention is that, after 2030, old infrastructure will not be maintained/fixed. I think I read that there is to be no more concrete production.

        Here on Airstrip One, there are to be only two airports by the end of 2029, and no flights or ships in or out of the UK by 2050. In the 80s, we producted 85% of our food; now we produce 45%. And they are putting farmers out of business and/or bribing them to rewild their land and take it out of food production. And they will doubtless outlaw nitrogen fertilisers, as they did in Sri Lanka (which led to crop failure, starvation – and its solution: digital ID for rationing).

        So, deliberate starvation is clearly on the cards on Prison Island.

            If a country being invaded starts to hurt its own people, what do you do?

            The GD Biden administration would give away our wealth heritage, resources and yes food to the invaders. For this they should be thrown in prison.

            brh – the ones who have allegedly been trained by the UN in Turkey (?) then mingled in with migrants, and are being kept in hotels and barracks till needed, will require special rations. It takes energy to subdue an angry population if you’re going to lock them down incessantly and refuse them food unless they comply and roll their sleeves up.

            If there was any truth in the Deagel prediction (one has to remember that anything can be part of the psyop) there won’t be very many people left to feed after next year. The UK population was forecast to drop from 67 million to 14.5 million.

          Around here we’re expanding the local airport. It used to be a somewhat smaller air field . Now it is a regional hub for Corporate /private jets. I’ve toured the facilities where the private jets are customized. I was astounded in the assortment of exotic woods, hides, and fixtures that go into these opulent status symbols of the uber rich.

    The Everlasting Gospel

    The vision of Christ that thou dost see
    Is my vision’s greatest enemy.
    Thine has a great hook nose like thine;
    Mine has a snub nose like to mine.
    Thine is the Friend of all Mankind;
    Mine speaks in parables to the blind.
    Thine loves the same world that mine hates;
    Thy heaven doors are my hell gates.
    Socrates taught what Meletus
    Loath’d as a nation’s bitterest curse,
    And Caiaphas was in his own mind
    A benefactor to mankind.
    Both read the Bible day and night,
    But thou read’st black where I read white.

    Was Jesus gentle, or did He
    Give any marks of gentility?
    When twelve years old He ran away,
    And left His parents in dismay.
    When after three days’ sorrow found,
    Loud as Sinai’s trumpet-sound:
    ‘No earthly parents I confess—
    My Heavenly Father’s business!
    Ye understand not what I say,
    And, angry, force Me to obey.
    Obedience is a duty then,
    And favour gains with God and men.’
    John from the wilderness loud cried;
    Satan gloried in his pride.
    ‘Come,’ said Satan, ‘come away,
    I’ll soon see if you’ll obey!
    John for disobedience bled,
    But you can turn the stones to bread.
    God’s high king and God’s high priest
    Shall plant their glories in your breast,
    If Caiaphas you will obey,
    If Herod you with bloody prey
    Feed with the sacrifice, and be
    Obedient, fall down, worship me.’
    Thunders and lightnings broke around,
    And Jesus’ voice in thunders’ sound:
    ‘Thus I seize the spiritual prey.
    Ye smiters with disease, make way.
    I come your King and God to seize,
    Is God a smiter with disease?’
    The God of this world rag’d in vain:
    He bound old Satan in His chain,
    And, bursting forth, His furious ire
    Became a chariot of fire.
    Throughout the land He took His course,
    And trac’d diseases to their source.
    He curs’d the Scribe and Pharisee,
    Trampling down hypocrisy.
    Where’er His chariot took its way,
    There Gates of Death let in the Day,
    Broke down from every chain and bar;
    And Satan in His spiritual war
    Dragg’d at His chariot-wheels: loud howl’d
    The God of this world: louder roll’d
    The chariot-wheels, and louder still
    His voice was heard from Zion’s Hill,
    And in His hand the scourge shone bright;
    He scourg’d the merchant Canaanite
    From out the Temple of His Mind,
    And in his body tight does bind
    Satan and all his hellish crew;
    And thus with wrath He did subdue
    The serpent bulk of Nature’s dross,
    Till He had nail’d it to the Cross.
    He took on sin in the Virgin’s womb
    And put it off on the Cross and tomb
    To be worshipp’d by the Church of Rome.

    Was Jesus humble? or did He
    Give any proofs of humility?
    Boast of high things with humble tone,
    And give with charity a stone?
    When but a child He ran away,
    And left His parents in dismay.
    When they had wander’d three days long
    These were the words upon His tongue:
    ‘No earthly parents I confess:
    I am doing My Father’s business.’
    When the rich learnèd Pharisee
    Came to consult Him secretly,
    Upon his heart with iron pen
    He wrote ‘Ye must be born again.’
    He was too proud to take a bribe;
    He spoke with authority, not like a Scribe.
    He says with most consummate art
    ‘Follow Me, I am meek and lowly of heart,
    As that is the only way to escape
    The miser’s net and the glutton’s trap.’
    What can be done with such desperate fools
    Who follow after the heathen schools?
    I was standing by when Jesus died;
    What I call’d humility, they call’d pride.
    He who loves his enemies betrays his friends.
    This surely is not what Jesus intends;
    But the sneaking pride of heroic schools,
    And the Scribes’ and Pharisees’ virtuous rules;
    For He acts with honest, triumphant pride,
    And this is the cause that Jesus dies.
    He did not die with Christian ease,
    Asking pardon of His enemies:
    If He had, Caiaphas would forgive;
    Sneaking submission can always live.
    He had only to say that God was the Devil,
    And the Devil was God, like a Christian civil;
    Mild Christian regrets to the Devil confess
    For affronting him thrice in the wilderness;
    He had soon been bloody Caesar’s elf,
    And at last he would have been Caesar himself,
    Like Dr. Priestly and Bacon and Newton—
    Poor spiritual knowledge is not worth a button
    For thus the Gospel Sir Isaac confutes:
    ‘God can only be known by His attributes;
    And as for the indwelling of the Holy Ghost,
    Or of Christ and His Father, it’s all a boast
    And pride, and vanity of the imagination,
    That disdains to follow this world’s fashion.’
    To teach doubt and experiment
    Certainly was not what Christ meant.
    What was He doing all that time,
    From twelve years old to manly prime?
    Was He then idle, or the less
    About His Father’s business?
    Or was His wisdom held in scorn
    Before His wrath began to burn
    In miracles throughout the land,
    That quite unnerv’d the Seraph band?
    If He had been Antichrist, Creeping Jesus,
    He’d have done anything to please us;
    Gone sneaking into synagogues,
    And not us’d the Elders and Priests like dogs;
    But humble as a lamb or ass
    Obey’d Himself to Caiaphas.
    God wants not man to humble himself:
    That is the trick of the Ancient Elf.
    This is the race that Jesus ran:
    Humble to God, haughty to man,
    Cursing the Rulers before the people
    Even to the Temple’s highest steeple,
    And when He humbled Himself to God
    Then descended the cruel rod.
    ‘If Thou Humblest Thyself, Thou humblest Me.
    Thou also dwell’st in Eternity.
    Thou art a Man: God is no more:
    Thy own Humanity learn to adore,
    For that is My spirit of life.
    Awake, arise to spiritual strife,
    And Thy revenge abroad display
    In terrors at the last Judgement Day.
    God’s mercy and long suffering
    Is but the sinner to judgement to bring.
    Thou on the Cross for them shalt pray—
    And take revenge at the Last Day.’
    Jesus replied, and thunders hurl’d:
    ‘I never will pray for the world.
    Once I did so when I pray’d in the Garden;
    I wish’d to take with Me a bodily pardon.’
    Can that which was of woman born,
    In the absence of the morn,
    When the Soul fell into sleep,
    And Archangels round it weep,
    Shooting out against the light
    Fibres of a deadly night,
    Reasoning upon its own dark fiction,
    In doubt which is self-contradiction?
    Humility is only doubt,
    And does the sun and moon blot out,
    Rooting over with thorns and stems
    The buried soul and all its gems.
    This life’s five windows of the soul
    Distorts the Heavens from pole to pole,
    And leads you to believe a lie
    When you see with, not thro’, the eye
    That was born in a night, to perish in a night,
    When the soul slept in the beams of light.

    Did Jesus teach doubt? or did He
    Give any lessons of philosophy,
    Charge Visionaries with deceiving,
    Or call men wise for not believing?…

    Was Jesus born of a Virgin pure
    With narrow soul and looks demure?
    If He intended to take on sin
    The Mother should an harlot been,
    Just such a one as Magdalen,
    With seven devils in her pen.
    Or were Jew virgins still more curs’d,
    And more sucking devils nurs’d?
    Or what was it which He took on
    That He might bring salvation?
    A body subject to be tempted,
    From neither pain nor grief exempted;
    Or such a body as might not feel
    The passions that with sinners deal?
    Yes, but they say He never fell.
    Ask Caiaphas; for he can tell.—
    ‘He mock’d the Sabbath, and He mock’d
    The Sabbath’s God, and He unlock’d
    The evil spirits from their shrines,
    And turn’d fishermen to divines;
    O’erturn’d the tent of secret sins,
    And its golden cords and pins,
    In the bloody shrine of war
    Pour’d around from star to star,—
    Halls of justice, hating vice,
    Where the Devil combs his lice.
    He turn’d the devils into swine
    That He might tempt the Jews to dine;
    Since which, a pig has got a look
    That for a Jew may be mistook.
    “Obey your parents.”—What says He?
    “Woman, what have I to do with thee?
    No earthly parents I confess:
    I am doing my Father’s business.”
    He scorn’d Earth’s parents, scorn’d Earth’s God,
    And mock’d the one and the other’s rod;
    His seventy Disciples sent
    Against Religion and Government—
    They by the sword of Justice fell,
    And Him their cruel murderer tell.
    He left His father’s trade to roam,
    A wand’ring vagrant without home;
    And thus He others’ labour stole,
    That He might live above control.
    The publicans and harlots He
    Selected for His company,
    And from the adulteress turn’d away
    God’s righteous law, that lost its prey.’
    Was Jesus chaste? or did He
    Give any lessons of chastity?
    The Morning blushèd fiery red:
    Mary was found in adulterous bed;
    Earth groan’d beneath, and Heaven above
    Trembled at discovery of Love.
    Jesus was sitting in Moses’ chair.
    They brought the trembling woman there.
    Moses commands she be ston’d to death.
    What was the sound of Jesus’ breath?
    He laid His hand on Moses’ law;
    The ancient Heavens, in silent awe,
    Writ with curses from pole to pole,
    All away began to roll.
    The Earth trembling and naked lay
    In secret bed of mortal clay;
    On Sinai felt the Hand Divine
    Pulling back the bloody shrine;
    And she heard the breath of God,
    As she heard by Eden’s flood:
    ‘Good and Evil are no more!
    Sinai’s trumpets cease to roar!
    Cease, finger of God, to write!
    The Heavens are not clean in Thy sight.
    Thou art good, and Thou alone;
    Nor may the sinner cast one stone.
    To be good only, is to be
    A God or else a Pharisee.
    Thou Angel of the Presence Divine,
    That didst create this Body of Mine,
    Wherefore hast thou writ these laws
    And created Hell’s dark jaws?
    My Presence I will take from thee:
    A cold leper thou shalt be.
    Tho’ thou wast so pure and bright
    That Heaven was impure in thy sight,
    Tho’ thy oath turn’d Heaven pale,
    Tho’ thy covenant built Hell’s jail,
    Tho’ thou didst all to chaos roll
    With the Serpent for its soul,
    Still the breath Divine does move,
    And the breath Divine is Love.
    Mary, fear not! Let me see
    The seven devils that torment thee.
    Hide not from My sight thy sin,
    That forgiveness thou may’st win.
    Has no man condemnèd thee?’
    ‘No man, Lord.’ ‘Then what is he
    Who shall accuse thee? Come ye forth,
    Fallen fiends of heavenly birth,
    That have forgot your ancient love,
    And driven away my trembling Dove.
    You shall bow before her feet;
    You shall lick the dust for meat;
    And tho’ you cannot love, but hate,
    Shall be beggars at Love’s gate.
    What was thy love? Let Me see it;
    Was it love or dark deceit?’
    ‘Love too long from me has fled;
    ’Twas dark deceit, to earn my bread;
    ’Twas covet, or ’twas custom, or
    Some trifle not worth caring for;
    That they may call a shame and sin
    Love’s temple that God dwelleth in,
    And hide in secret hidden shrine
    The naked Human Form Divine,
    And render that a lawless thing
    On which the Soul expands its wing.
    But this, O Lord, this was my sin,
    When first I let these devils in,
    In dark pretence to chastity
    Blaspheming Love, blaspheming Thee,
    Thence rose secret adulteries,
    And thence did covet also rise.
    My sin Thou hast forgiven me;
    Canst Thou forgive my blasphemy?
    Canst Thou return to this dark hell,
    And in my burning bosom dwell?
    And canst Thou die that I may live?
    And canst Thou pity and forgive?’
    Then roll’d the shadowy Man away
    From the limbs of Jesus, to make them His prey,
    An ever devouring appetite,
    Glittering with festering venoms bright;
    Crying ‘Crucify this cause of distress,
    Who don’t keep the secrets of holiness!
    The mental powers by diseases we bind;
    But He heals the deaf, the dumb, and the blind.
    Whom God has afflicted for secret ends,
    He comforts and heals and calls them friends.’
    But, when Jesus was crucified,
    Then was perfected His galling pride.
    In three nights He devour’d His prey,
    And still He devours the body of clay;
    For dust and clay is the Serpent’s meat,
    Which never was made for Man to eat.

    Seeing this False Christ, in fury and passion
    I made my voice heard all over the nation.
    What are those…

    I am sure this Jesus will not do,
    Either for Englishman or Jew.

I was in the church with my mother doing the stations one day ( we did it all the time)when I saw the statue of the Virgin with a tear dripping down the cheek.

            The WEF is a global attempt by the Western powers PTB. Israel is a product of the West, supported by the West and enemy of Iran, a member of BRICS++. Israel takes care of itself with monetary support from the West. If Israel was to fall, IMHO, the West would step in.

    Interesting article in the San Diego newspaper.

    Instead of using raised beds:

    Put straw bales down, cut side up. Soak them until running out the bottom. Water every day.

    Put fertilizer on top of the bales, soak in thoroughly. At least 20% nitrogen.

    The fertilizer will break down the straw, bacteria action. Water every day for two weeks. Slit or dig into the top of the bales to plant veggies.

    All My Good Countrymen

    … also translated as All My Compatriots… is a 1968 Czechoslovak film directed by Vojt?ch Jasný…

    It took nearly 10 years to complete the script and is his most renowned work. The movie was based on real people from Jasný’s hometown Kel?. The film was banned and the director went into exile rather than recant. It was entered into the 1969 Cannes Film Festival where Jasný won the award for Best Director.

    Plot

    The film begins in 1945 and traces the seasonal or annual changes that a small Moravian village undergoes until the Epilogue, which is sometime after 1958.

    The first part of the film set in 1945 establishes the innocence and camaraderie of a village amidst the backdrop of a post-War landscape. Children play with guns and a land mine is discovered while ploughing the fields. A group of villagers detonate it and end the night dancing and drinking in the local pub. They leave at dawn as the sun rises on a beautiful, idyllic landscape and stop to sleep beneath a tree after taking in the view.” ~ Wikipedia

    Clockmaker

    youtu.be/XAak3zCY6tg?si=9ccJFP5_E9Fr869a

    —-

    Deists often call God the ‘Clockmaker’. The Temple of the Great Clockmaker, in the novel The Case Of The Dead Certainty by Kel Richards, is a temple which represents deism.

    The Clock Maker Theory and the watchmaker analogy describe by way of analogy religious, philosophical, and theological opinions about the existence of god(s) that have been expressed over the years.

    During the 1800s and 1900s, clocks or watches were carried around as a form of flaunting social status. They were also a way of instilling a sense of time regulation for work in the budding industrial market.”

        Civilization Versus Entropy

        I suppose if or when society declines sufficiently, clocks and watches and the like may inevitably become relegated to the sidelines as people get on more with natural rhythms, such as those related to seasons and growth.

        —-

        “John Zerzan is an American anarchist and primitivist philosopher and author. He is known for his critique of modern civilization and his advocacy for a return to a more primitive, pre-civilized way of life. Zerzan’s work focuses on the concept of time and its relationship to human society

        Zerzan’s ideas about time are explored in his book ‘Time and Its Discontents’, in which he argues that our understanding of time is closely tied to our understanding of work, labour, and the concept of the ‘second law’ of thermodynamics…

        In his book ‘A People’s History of Civilization’, Zerzan provides a critical perspective on the development of civilization and the role of time in shaping our understanding of the world. He argues that the development of civilization has been marked by a gradual erosion of our connection to nature and our sense of time, and that this has led to a sense of disconnection and alienation.” ~ Brave Search results consolidation

        • BackRowHeckler May 19, 2024 at 3:10 pm #

          Clocks, watches, timepieces etc became especially important with the advent of the Railroads in the 1840s. I have a copy of a RR schedule for my little town from 1856; departures and arrivals broken down minute by minute. 12 different trains representing the Canal Line & the Connecticut Western came thru here daily; you could get a train at noon and be in NYC — with a layover in New Haven — by 6:00 pm.

            The name rings a bell, so I looked it up cursorily, and his ‘concepts’ also ring a bell, so I must have encountered it/him before.
            I may have come across him in relation to mass production and for example, the idea of how the industrial system of mass production is at odds with the slower human speed and maybe even nature’s ultimate incapacity to absorb the output, given externalities and planned obsolescence and whatnot.

            Reminds me of the documentary, The Lightbulb Conspiracy.

      If and when this nation is “torn apart” it will happen from natural causes. The existence of a USA that cannot mind its own business is a serious problem for a number of large and powerful nations, including Russia. For the USA to break up into smaller nations is inevitable and will be a good thing not only for the rest of the world but for the people who live in North America.

      I felt like some sort of crunchy salty snack and, much to my pleasure and pretty much by accident, found, on the top back of my stove, a plastic container, formerly of cottage cheese, containing some ‘Asian’ popcorn that I had popped and left over from about a few days ago. So that’s what I’m having with some orange juice as I compose this comment.

      So what is ‘Asian’ popcorn? Well, that’s what I call it when I pop it with peanut or sesame oil and then drizzle the popped kernals with some kind of sauce, like teriyaki or soya and then place it on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven for an hour at lowest setting (~170 deg. F) to dry out the sauce on the popcorn.

          I was recently thinking of selling in bulk where the stores got it in bulk and people brought in their own containers that the staff filled. Our products are still overpackaged and probably overshipped too, meaning that, in-season local apples for example could be sold here instead of apples grown in Chile sold here at the same time. Lots of common-sense things can be done that just aren’t of course.

    from RT

    Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski defended the new rules and blasted “the hype in the media.” He explained that the guidelines were put in place to ensure an inclusive environment and uphold Poland’s secularism.

    “Everyone has the right to their faith, or the lack thereof. This includes civil servants and clerks. [But] anyone who comes to the office to handle their business has the right to feel that he or she is in a neutral office. As simply as that,” the mayor wrote on X (formerly Twitter) on Thursday. “No one intends to wage a battle against any religion in Warsaw.”

    Jarek: Poland’s descent into the darkness accelerates. As Mr Hood of Amren pointed out: There is no neutral. If you don’t have one kind of culture, you will have another. No to tradition means yes to globo-homo. No to Catholicism means yes to other religions or the religion of no religion.

        Atheism is a system of belief that gives great comfort to its fanatical adherents. Thus it functions as a religion, psychologically speaking. As does Marxism. Or for others, Capitalism.

        In case you don’t know, agnosticism or “I don’t know” is the true position of intellectual neutrality as to the existence of God.

      Another Czar. For his murder, you will not be forgiven until the end of the world.

      • Socrates-Detroit May 19, 2024 at 2:43 pm #

        Raisi’s death is one more reality that will keep the world on it’s present trajectory, perhaps even accelerate events.

        In the meantime, I read on pronews.gr that Slovakia police has said they have found evidence that Fico’s shooter’s wife communicated with HUR (Main Directorate of Intelligence-Ukraine).

      Of course, Canada will do whatever WEF/King Charles III tells us to.

    • Socrates-Detroit May 19, 2024 at 2:38 pm #

      Raisi was a “colonizer”? Explain that one.

    • Paula D May 19, 2024 at 6:24 pm #

      LIke when the US blew up General Soleimani, and multiple people also died in the explosion, including an Iraqi military leader, there may have been other people on that Iranian helicopter.

      “The helicopter may also have included the Governor of East Azerbaijan, Ayatollah Al-Hashim, and Iranian Foreign Minister Hussein Emir Abdullahian.”.

      When it’s civilians who are killed next to a targeted person, the US calls it “collateral damage”.
      But in the case of other important leaders, is it collateral? Or do the psychopaths running the place consider it a bonus?

      • Socrates-Detroit May 19, 2024 at 9:59 pm #

        @Paula I think it was wrong and counterproductive for the US to assassinate Soleimani. I was furious at Trump.

        IF the US is behind this “crash”, this is much worse.

        If Israel is behind this, whether it did this with the knowledge, perhaps support of the US, or whether it acted on its own, AGAIN, it would be much worse.

        However, I think it’s too early to pick the US or Israel. If they did, at this time, it looks like they played it very well, I’m sorry to say.

        I have MANY questions, which will probably never be answered.

        Some background:

        First of all, it’s generally accepted that Azerbaijan (Islamic) and Israel are very close. Israel has supplied Azerbaijan with lots of weapons–perhaps at discount. Maybe Azeri oil goes to Israel at discount. Maybe Israel has listening posts or drone bases in Azerbaijan…

        It’s generally accepted that the two nations closest to Azerbaijan are TURKEY (with proven genocidal track record–which is usually ignored as not to embarass our “NATO ally”) and ISRAEL (working on their little genocide).

        The Azerbaijanis are “Turkic peoples” so they are related to the Turks, BTW.

        It’s kind of irrelevant who is the better friend, in this context. BOTH nations were indispensable in Azerbaijan’s decisive military superiority vis-a-vis Armenia.

        It’s reasonable to assume the “quid pro quo” for Israeli arms and aid may include Israeli intelligence gathering facilities, maybe drone bases, with which the Israelis can spy on Iran. This ability, if it exists, would be, and IS, invaluable to Israel.

        In this context, it is the Israeli relationship that is of importance.

        Moscow, for its own purposes, didn’t put as much pressure on Azerbaijan as might have been expected.

        Perhaps this has something to do with (nominally Christian) Armenia’s dalliance with the West, which irritates Moscow; perhaps it was to do with “keep your friends close and enemies closer” thinking in Moscow, which means the Russians don’t want friction with Azerbaijan at this time. I DO NOT KNOW.

        Until recently, my understanding was that, because Azerbaijan and Israel have this relationship, Iran has been a good friend to Armenia.

        However, @PAULA, Armenia’s “dalliance” with the West

        (which is completely INIMICAL to the interests of the Armenian people, since the West–the US and France, CANNOT physically access Armenia without the permission of Turkey. Turkey! Yes, the same Turks who slaughtered the Armenians, the same Turks cited by Der Furor in his nefarious plans for the Jews)

        may have soured the Iranians on Armenia?

        I only know what I read or see, some of which I take at face value, much of which I am skeptical. Information, news, media is weaponized.

        WTH was the PRESIDENT of Iran doing visiting Azerbaijan?

        Has there been that much of a SEA CHANGE in relations between the two nations? When I read this, it was like reading that Putin will attend the 80th anniversary of D-Day! And his plane crashed! Gee whiz, so sorry.

        Beyond that, WHY would said President take a helicopter, and not a jet? Are Iran’s passenger aircraft that bad? And helicopters are better? If a helo was used because of concerns over the airspace, then it’s too risky to go at all. Period.

        There may be other other actors who would like Iran’s President dead.

        Israel would (though once we get beyond the blood lust satisfaction, is that really good for Israel? What if President Raisi’s replacement is even more hawkish? What then? What if Raisi’s replacement is COMPELLED to be more hawkish, hmm? Is Israel really that confident that no Iranian WMDs can get through?).

        Ditto the US. See above.

        Perhaps an IRANIAN rival of Raisi wanted him out? Maybe some one more hawkish–who can point at Israel and the US to blame, and rally more elements of Iran to a more hawkish policy.

        I don’t think Iran wants a bigger war, in general, and I definitely think Iran does not want one now–later is better, time is on their side. Israel has tried to provoke Iran, and Iran has been measured and not taken the bait.

        A more dovish Iranian rival? I doubt it. This episode, which if President Raisi is actually dead, is very bad news, and will only strengthen the hawks in Iran. And consequently, the US.

        A Russian? To get a more hawkish Iran? I don’t think Russia wants that.

        A Ukrainian intel op? Does a more hawkish Iran help Zelensky? Logically, no, but Zelensky is a moron and a puppet. Maybe the US green-lighted the Ukraine, so there is NO CONNECTION with the CIA or Special Forces.

        Finally, there were reports here and there that recently, US officials and Iranian officials met to try to “deconflict” a little. Are those accounts true? False? Who knows? But, if TRUE, and now this happens? So that was part of the American deception–and the Iranians bought it?

        Again, I return to my original question: with the Middle East as volatile and primed as it is, WHY would Raisi visit a country he had has had difficult relations with, quite possibly Israel’s closest Islamic ally (in PRACTICE)? Why take the risk? Why leave his country, when every day could lead to an Israeli-Iranian blow-up, triggered by some underling on either side who thinks “it’s time to teach them a lesson”.

        It was an ill-advised trip, for a phony photo op (to the best of my knowledge). And there is a lot I don’t know.

        But I think this is bad.

        Then, I step back and think, well, if I was a Palestinian, things really are very bad–bombs, famine, no water, rubble flies, pestilence. So, this is merely bad. Like our runaway deficit.

        As I see, President Raisi represented a lesser threat to myself and middle America, than Alice Stewart.

        Let me be clear, I take NO pleasure in her death. It is very sad, and chilling reminder that none of the vaxxed, none of my vaxxed friends and family, are safe.

        Her story reminds me of an old friend, whose sudden death saddened and shocked me (an others).

        But reading Alice Stewart’s tweets, and how she pushed the mRNA shots and ridiculed those who did not, STEWART was a greater threat to me, many CFNers, and Americans in general.

        People like her, with her “sincerity and niceness” were more dangerous than the hysterics, who fed the hysteria. Several employers forced their employees to take the shots. I know people who didn’t want the shot but valued their job/career/pension and took the shot. How many people died or developed serious illness, and continue to do so, because people like HER valued being part of the elite, telling us what we should know and think?

        Sorry for the long missive.

        In short, while Israel and/or the US are prime suspects, I don’t think we know enough—we will probably never know enough. And there are so many variables here, the old aircraft, the weather. It was really bad idea for Iran’s Prez to visit his next-door rival, he teed it up nicely for Israel/US if in fact they are behind this.

    According to CNN:

    CNN political commentator Alice Stewart found dead at age 58, yesterday, Saturday, May 19.

    No foul play evident (so far) in Bell View, northern VA.

    She had worked on Republican campaigns.

    Sounds just like a friend of mine who was found dead earlier this year.

    Likeable. Fit. Female. Runner. Blonde/similar complexion.

    Here today, gone tomorrow. Given her circles and profession, I bet she was mRNA vaxed.

    • Socrates-Detroit May 19, 2024 at 2:48 pm #

      Well, CFNers, here is what the CNN article on Drudge didn’t say

      CNN Anchor Alice Stewart has #diedsuddenly alone outside her home after a “medical episode.” Alice bragged about being fully vaccinated and publicly questioned why others didn’t choose to also. She previously worked at Fox News, for Rick Scott and Ted Cruz, and the RNC. How many…

      Meet Alice. She was an athlete and extremely fit and had a body that 20-year-old would envy. She just died suddenly it barely 58 and was fully vaccinated and pushed the shot on television and on her Twitter page.

    Authored by Jack Phillips via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours),

    The U.S. Department of State on Friday issued a “worldwide caution” alert for U.S. citizens to remain alert for possible terrorist attacks or other violent actions against Americans.

    A flag waves in the wind at a U.S. embassy in a file photo. (Gleb Garanich/Reuters)

    In a “security alert” posted on its website, the agency said the warning was sent because of the “potential for terrorist attacks, demonstrations, or violent actions against U.S. citizens and interests.” Americans who are overseas, it added, are encouraged to use “increased caution.”

    The Department of State said it is also “aware of the increased potential for foreign terrorist organization-inspired violence against” LGBT people, echoing a statement issued by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security earlier this week that terrorist groups such as ISIS could target”

    So they throw open the borders, let all these people lfood in and then have the nerve to tell Americans “Be careful, there may be terrorist attacks.”

    Please go fuck yourself, who ever wrote this article. But if LBGTQ people get attacked, well it serves them right. They are the ones who always have to protest along whatever group they believe is “oppressed.” Should have stayed your dumbass out of this whole Hamas/Israel nonsense.

    • TruthSeeker1986 May 19, 2024 at 5:29 pm #

      Besides the U.S. created Isis. So if they do start attacking, it’s because the U.S. told them to do it, gave them the order. I live around a bunch of Muslims. Every time I go out I see nothing but women wearing hijabs and a bunch of people talking in different languages. You can’t fund a country that’s killing Muslims and then act like they aren’t going to want revenge when the idiotic fucks who funded Israel is constantly importing more Muslims here and all over Europe. Biden and the all fucking GOV want these people to commit terrorist acts. Then they write up these BS articles telling people to be “careful” after they are the main ones who created the problem in the first place.

      • TruthSeeker1986 May 19, 2024 at 5:31 pm #

        • SoftStarLight May 19, 2024 at 6:26 pm #

          I know, it is really upsetting. I think you are right, they are setting everything up so that there are attacks and incidences. Then they will use those situations to create new laws and reasons for new conflicts.

    Report from Hamas:Qassam Brigades (Hamas)

    “Al-Qassam Brigades target a Zionist Merkava 4 tank with an Al-Yassin 105 shell in the Al-Tannour neighborhood, east of the city of Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip.

    “Al-Qassam fighters were able to liquidate 15 Zionist soldiers after a Qassam group targeted a house in which a large number of soldiers were fortified with a Ra’adiyah (thunder) anti-personnel explosive device.

    “After that, our fighters stormed the house and clashed with the remaining soldiers from a point-blank range using light machine guns and hand grenades in the Al-Tannour neighborhood, east of the city of Rafah, south of the [Gaza] Strip.

    “Al-Qassam Brigades bombarded enemy forces stationed inside the Rafah land crossing, south of the Gaza Strip, using mortar shells.

    “Al-Qassam fighters were able to launch a SAM-7 missile at an Apache helicopter north of the Jabalia refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip.

    Iran has still not released any info on the condition of the president, but observers in Tehran have seen the military and IRG deployed on the streets.

    Looks like he’s dead, and they expect the people of Iran to be really, really pissed about it.

I didn’t feel like this even after 9/11 happened because I paid it very little attention.

    The Gaza Health Ministry is reporting that the Ebrahim Raisi‘s helicopter also was carrying 500-1000 women and children who are also presumed dead. Further complicating the tragedy, the helicopter crashed into a hospital for disabled children, killing all the patients and staff. The Ministry estimates the death toll will eventually reach five figures and that 95% of the victims were newborn babies.

    • TruthSeeker1986 May 19, 2024 at 7:38 pm #

    “You might know him as one of the first men on the moon, but we know him as the first Mason on the moon. Brother Edwin Eugene (Buzz) Aldrin, Jr. was an active Mason and is a member of Clear Lake Lodge No. 1417, AF&AM in Seabrook, Texas. He was born January 20, 1930 in Glen Ridge, New Jersey and attended The United States Military Academy at West Point, graduating third in his class in 1951. Brother Aldrin later went on to receive a PhD in Astronautics from M.I.T. in 1963. He served in the Korean War and and is credited with two enemy fighter kills during his tour.

    Brother Aldrin was initiated into Freemasonry at Oak Park Lodge No. 864 in Alabama and raised at Lawrence N. Greenleaf Lodge, No. 169 in Colorado. He is also a member of York Rite and Arabia Shrine Temple of Houston.”

    Shooting for the Moon

    On the crest of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon, The Grand Master of Texas approved Brother Aldrin’s request to open a Representation of the Grand Lodge of Texas on the Moon and, thereby, establish Masonic Territorial Jurisdiction there. He also asked Buzz to carry a special deputation on his journey. Aldrin signed this deputation and confirmed that it was, indeed, carried to the moon.

    Aldrin also carried a handmade silk Masonic flag with him on his space journey, embroidered with the words, “Supreme Council, 33°, Southern Jurisdiction, USA.” After his mission on September 16, 1969, Brother Aldrin visited the House of the Temple in Washington, DC, and presented the flag to Grand Commander Luther Smith. The flag is now located in the archives of the House of the Temple

    The Sky’s the Limit

    It’s no secret that there are a number of Masonic astronauts and the questions have been posed: Why are so many astronauts also Masons? And what did the first moonwalk have to do with Masonry? The answer boils down to one simple word: progress. Freemasons have always been on the cutting edge of new advancements and behind the development of impactful breakthroughs and innovations.

    If the goal is to spread light wherever we go, then why not spread light past earth’s boundaries and into the darkest places we can reach? Brother Aldrin did just that, proving the point that “when man reaches new worlds, Masonry will be there.”
    From Buzz Aldrin to John Glenn, many notable astronauts and American heroes also belong to the world’s oldest fraternity.
    Masons are men on a quest to become part of something bigger than themselves, constantly seeking deeper insight into the mysteries of the universe. This curiosity and pursuit of knowledge is a driving force that binds brethren together. It is also why Freemasonry has seen its fair share of pioneering men within its ranks throughout the centuries. Among the intellectual titans that have graced lodge rooms across the globe, few have taken their path to the heights – literally – as those Brothers who have ventured among the stars.

    Read on to learn more about the great men and Freemasons who have journeyed to the stars in an effort to further mankind’s understanding of the universe.

    Ill. John Glenn, Jr., 33°

    John Glenn, Freemason and Astronaut
    Illustrious John Glenn, 33° was an inspiration to many, both inside the fraternity and beyond. He was an American hero, serving in both World War II and the Korean War, and flying 149 missions, ultimately becoming a decorated astronaut and United States senator. His accomplishments amongst the stars were many, as he was the first American to orbit the Earth aboard Friendship 7 on February 20, 1962, on the Mercury-Atlas 6 mission. For this feat, President John F. Kennedy presented him with the NASA Distinguished Service Medal.

    Glenn had a long and accomplished journey in Freemasonry beginning in 1964 when he petitioned Concord Lodge No. 688 in his hometown of New Concord, Ohio. He didn’t officially join the fraternity until August 19, 1978, where he was made a “Mason at Sight” by the Grand Master of Ohio, Jerry C. Rastor. He later earned his Scottish Rite degrees in the Valley of Cincinnati on April 11, 1997. The very next year he was named Sovereign Grand Inspector General and became a 33rd degree Scottish Rite Mason, Honorary Member of the Supreme Council. During his last journey to space in 1998, he wore his 33° degree ring and made history as the oldest man to travel to space at the age of 77.

    Today, his cap and 33° ring are preserved at the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum and Library.

    Col. “Buzz” Aldrin

    Buzz Aldrin, Freemason and Astronaut
    The first Mason on the moon and a member of the Apollo 11 expedition, Brother Edwin Eugene (Buzz) Aldrin, Jr. has had an extraordinary journey as a man and as a Freemason. Piloted by Bro. Aldrin himself, the first moonwalk was a momentous occasion for all humanity and a proud day for Freemasonry.

    In fact, Aldrin received a special deputation from the Grand Master of Texas, J. Guy Smith to open a Representation of the Grand Lodge of Texas on the Moon and establish Masonic Territorial Jurisdiction there for the Grand Lodge of Texas. He carried the deputation to the moon on that famous moon landing in 1969.

    Brother Aldrin was initiated into Freemasonry at Oak Park Lodge No. 864 in Alabama and raised at Lawrence N. Greenleaf Lodge, No. 169 in Colorado. He is also a member of York Rite and Arabia Shrine Temple of Houston.

    Col. Leroy “Gordo” Gordon Cooper, Jr., 33°

    A Young Colonel Leroy “Gordo” Gordon Cooper, Jr. in his space uniform
    Leroy Gordon Cooper, Jr., was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma on March 6, 1927. He was fascinated with flying from an early age and was flying his family’s plane by the age of eight. By the age of twelve he was flying solo and taking his first steps in what would go on to become an illustrious aerospace career.

    Following his love of flying, Cooper enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, also pursuing a degree in aeronautical engineering from the Air Force Institute of Technology. He flew F-84s and F-86s in the Eighty-Sixth Fighter Bomber group in Munich before becoming a test pilot in the Flight Test Division at Edwards Air Force Base in California.

    In 1959, Bro. Cooper’s passion for flying took him to new heights when the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) chose him to be one of the original seven Mercury astronauts – the first manned space program of the United States. Cooper accomplished several critical milestones for the program. He was the pilot for Faith 7, the final and longest Mercury flight in which he flew for over 34 hours, orbiting the earth 22 times.<
