Boston, Massachusetts, may be even more Woked-up than the Pacific Coast cities. By “Woked-up” I mean susceptible to a quasi-religious frenzy that compels the performance of moral atonement scripts with an emphasis on obeisance to “experts” (credentialed hierophants) — such as Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, Dr. Klaus Schwab, and the various distinguished authors of Critical Race Theory. But it was still a bit of a shock last week to see the Boston Red Sox playing in sky blue and yellow uniforms in solidarity with the neo-Nazi failing state, Ukraine. I’d be surprised if Xander Bogaerts and Rafael Devers could find Ukraine on a map.

News flash to Boston: Russia’s “special operation” in Ukraine is all over except the shouting. Plus, nobody in the USA cares about it anymore, and if they do, probably for the wrong reasons. The right reason to care is that the “Joe Biden” regime’s insane campaign to destroy Russia has only brought Western Europe to the brink of collapse and ruin, thereby threatening the continuation of Western Civilization altogether.

You don’t hear much chatter about this emanating from, say, Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government because, apparently, they’re all-in on the demolition of Western Civ. It is the ultimate act of atonement, and atonement for the sins of culture and politics is the currency for personal status in Woke Elitedom. America’s elites are secretly disgusted with themselves, especially about the wealth they have been able to grift out of all the racketeering that has replaced honest work in our country — and nowhere is the racketeering more grotesque, or more pretentiously caparisoned, than in the Ivy League universities. Status drives Wokery because Woke Elitedom has more money than it knows what to do with, so just having a lot of money means less than it used to — just ask Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Don’t worry. Soon they will have a lot less money. Or rather, first they will have a lot of money that’s worthless and then they will have no money, like everybody else. The demoralizing inflation underway leads to the destruction of credit and when enough credit is destroyed, there will be no money, since our money is based on credit. When that happens, see what your self-proclaimed moral purity will buy you.

The credit-driven money system is a metaphor representing the expectation that we will always have more of everything. That was surely the consensus in 1913 when the Federal Reserve was born. 1913 was the last year of the Belle Époque, the beautiful era preceding the First World War. It was also the coming-of-age of economies based on oil. In that moment, Western Civ stood in amazement at its achievements and in thrall to its glittering future. The slaughter in the trenches of WWI shattered that confidence, nowhere more deeply than in Germany, which afterwards lurched from the degeneracy of the Weimar Republic to the depravity of Hitler’s Third Reich, and from there back to ruin in the Second World War.

Today’s Woke Elitedom of Europe, led by Germany, is deliberately driving the EU nations into a ditch without bothering to go to war. They certainly don’t have the military mojo to prosecute a war with Russia — which is what they would be doing if NATO intervened actively in Ukraine (ain’t gonna happen). Instead, they have torn-up reams of trade agreements and imploded a richly-constructed supply network of basic operating resources like oil, natgas, minerals, and grains in an absurd act of atonement, in obeisance to the experts at the World Economic Forum and the fiends behind “Joe Biden.” And lately, they are bent on destroying their food supply with cockamamie campaigns against their farmers, in line with WEF hallucinations about climate change.

As in the USA, the governments of Euroland have declared war on their own people. Germans are scuttling around collecting firewood now, with natgas looking scarce and unaffordable going into winter at the dark upper latitudes. I would bet that there are close to zero wood-stoves available at this point, and how many cold seasons will it take before they cut down all the forests of Europe? Meanwhile, Europe’s industries and businesses disintegrate. The Great Re-set at hand won’t be der Schwabenklaus’s transhuman nirvana but rather a return trip to the 12th century.

All this does not even include the forthcoming attrition among the vaccinated. We have succeeded in disabling and destroying the immune systems of many millions of people with mRNA shots. They are going to get sick from all sorts of things. A lot of activities will stop working, including the medical industry, so many of the injured and dying will not receive care. In this late summer interim, American pharma says it’s ready to bring forth new-and-improved mRNA shots supposedly keyed to the latest emerging variants of the C-19 coronavirus. Pharma and its enablers in the NIH-CDC matrix actually have no idea what variants are coming — nowhere is nature more of a trickster than in disease organisms — and you can be sure that their new vaccines will be more shuck-and-jive.

Anyway, nobody believes them anymore. Few are lining up for the boosters and fewer parents are dragging their kids and babies to the shotmeisters. What remains to happen, and probably will by summer’s end, is a massive uprising of the non-Woke against the Woke Elites and the end of their insane depredations. They can atone all they want at their trials and executions.

            Germany doesn’t get that cold in the winter, usually. It’s just depressingly gray, which probably drove them to conquer Rome back in the day.

            Buildings are well insulated by American standards. Meaning: if they keep them heated to about 58 degrees, they can probably get by on 20% of the energy. That’s going to lead to a lot of sickness and death, but they won’t freeze.

      One of the things I hear far too often, if not always, from people when discussing serious issues is the line, “I don’t want to talk (or think) about things that I can’t control”. Why they don’t apply this to the things that they DO talk about things like sports and entertainment events, or how their kiddies did on the soccer field none of which they can control either, boggles the mind.

      My diagnosis of the malady of simply not giving a shit about anything of consequence is that far too many people have been programmed to become lazy, uncaring, and pretty much scared shitless of anything that requires them to think or act like responsible adults.

      In the massive heard of witless victims headed to the slaughterhouse, we must find the breaks in the fences and sneak the heck out of the mass of the damned under cover of darkness and find places where the world is still made by hand.

        Learned helplessness, Walter. Tie a dog to a chain that limits his ability to go beyond 15 yards and when you remove the chain he will remain within the 15 yards.

        If there is no possibility of escape then it’s a good coping mechanism. What we need are people to show that there are ways to break the chains. Virile men, not trans-soy ones, will be needed.

        Abundant weed helps make people more apathetic.

        I remember calling a hotline to the state capital, back when government was still a little bit responsive to the electorate.

        Did I think my one call was enough to sway anyone? No.

        But if legislators get 100 calls against some idiotic legislation they are thinking of, and zero calls in favor, that at least gives them some idea of the mood of the electorate.

        I told a woman who ran her own business about the hotline, when the government was considering new taxes which would affect her. She used it, and the legislation did not pass, and she kept the number in her phone on speed dial and contributed her two cents ever after.

        Yes, there is some logic in keeping your mind of the things you cannot change, but first you need to think whether there is a very small part that you can play.

        Anyone remember the March of Dimes? The whole idea being one dime was something most people could spare, and dimes added up to dollars.

          It’s amazing how hard the state of NY has been pushing dope since legalization.

          I’m getting really tired of smelling that skunk weed everytime I go to the park.

          • Beryl of Oyl August 1, 2022 at 11:22 am #

            The worst part is that they drive to the park and smoke it in their cars.

            I smell it when I’m inside the supermarket, and I think the workers are smoking it outside on their breaks.

          • Walter B August 1, 2022 at 12:32 pm #

            As an elected public official, I attended many informational events dealing with the legalization and the numerous and serious problems that other states experienced and are still experiencing after legalization. Even the Black Leaders Caucus in New Jersey opposed legalization for fear of the effect that it would have on their communities.

            No one cared and the public cried out in a vast majority that they wanted it legalized and abundantly distributed everywhere. I favored decriminalization but not legalization which was, as you point out, so heavily endorsed for use by the government. Keep ’em stoned and keep them stupid and “no one will notice the big red, white and blue dick being jammed up their assholes every day”, as George Carlin often warned.

            As Judge Napolitan so wisely noted at the Rally For Peace and Freedom on 23 Jul 22 in Kingston, New York, “Everything the government says is a lie, everything that they have has been stolen from someone else, and the only thing they are good at is killing people!” Unfortunately, our population cannot think critically, prevent bad things from happening due to their bad choices of action, or even seem to give a damn anymore about anything or anybody other than themselves.

            Oh well, Karma shall be a bitch.

            Ya know a smell I find disgusting? Cigarettes. My personal record is five cars ahead of me, busy highway (Okee and Military in WPB for those familiar) with my windows rolled up and AC off – yup, could still smell that nasty shit over all the exhaust fumes. And it kills hundreds of thousands of people per year. Drives up medical costs for all of us.

            Bitch about it all you want, but let the fuckers smoke. That’s the country I want to live in.

            Mr. Kunstler is certainly doing his part. I just reread his 210430 American Conservative Piece, and the 2022 Forecast. (Dec.31,2021). and while he details the flood of grievous events which is swirling and rising around us, he ends both essays with profound hope, encouragement and optimism for the middle distance. i really appreciate that.

            i’d like to see more forecasting detail about what it means to our daily lives as the die-off gathers victims at increasing rates. those empty holes in our fabric where neighbors, friends, retail service workers, and people who answer the phones in gov’t, what those holes mean. how will we manage — how will we survive the great rending.

            perhaps he’s already done that in his books. but i don’t read books anymore, although i still buy them.

            we all hope for justice, and revenge.

            i think we are going to have to settle for being right.

        Walter, you sneak out. I’m walking out–at noon–guns in hand.
        I do think that events like this are going to wake people up to an inner strength (I hate that phrase, but it works here) that they did not know.
        People are tough.

        • Walter B August 1, 2022 at 5:06 pm #

          Gonna be hard for me to sneak out Howard because they’ve got my number and after almost two decades in the government/political arena remaining true to First Principles, well I’ve have acquired enemies that normal people never have to suffer with. By fighting my way in and correcting what wrongs we were able to correct, I can look back and be proud that I put my money where my mouth was, even if in the end, resistance was futile. The combination of the First Lie Wins on social media and the ballot manipulation by the powers in our county seat, made the beast far too powerful to be bested. I enjoyed the fight though, and with my being on the ballot for the General Election in November for the opposing party, I expect that sooner or later I will have to move out to an even more remote wilderness or perish in the attempt.

          Personally, I believe that the line from Private Ryan of, “Don’t shoot, let ’em burn”, conveys a more appropriate response to tyranny.

      • ThorsHammer August 2, 2022 at 9:02 pm #

        Walter B

        I encountered a perfect example this morning when I arrived for my bi-annual medical check up. The clinic I’ve gone to for twenty years is now associated with a large regional hospital owned by a hedge fund and sets policy for all it’s underlings.

        At the entry door was a large stop sign larger than a street sign demanding that I mask up before entering. I ignored it as any rational person would, and proceeded to the intake desk. The nurse handed me a surgical mask and requested that i muzzle up. My response was a simple no, I do not perform rituals than have no more medical validity than a Haitian witch doctor spreading blood from a live chicken to rid a sick person of bad spirits. The nurse demanded than I follow Hospital policy, and I said— call the State Police.

        A head nurse intervened and hustled me off to an exam room where I could be isolated “so I wouldn’t infect the other patients.”
        By this time I’m a bit heated, so I asked her if she was aware that Dr. Fauci had admitted in a national interview in July of 2021 that masks had little utility in preventing infection or transmission of COVID19, and that their real function was to frighten people into getting vaccinated. Who is Dr. Fauci she said? When I listed his qualifications she claimed to have never heard of him!

        The final chapter of our “discussion” was her asking if I really wanted to talk about COVID? “We are all tired of the whole subject in this clinic.”

        Delusion is the Opium of the People

        • Walter B August 3, 2022 at 5:27 pm #

          Yes ThorsHammer, it is all more than mentally draining. Every day that I am on the road I see people in cars alone with those rat face style masks on and I just shake my head and sigh. The good part about those that wear feed bags everywhere they go is that they are alerting the rest of us to the fact that they are not the types that any of us should run into a burning building to try to save. It is almost like a cartoon balloon floating above their heads that says, “Look at me I am a useless eater and will do whatever I am told to do”.

          Perhaps we should start going up to them and asking them to turn over their wallets. I’ll bet a lot of them would.

          • Justin August 4, 2022 at 10:09 pm #

            Walter, I totally agree with all you said, and sadly I have to admit that the demise of those rat face mask wearers and clot shot experiment subjects will not be missed. Maybe Darwin was right after all? They certainly deserve Darwin Awards, eh?

            Maybe a culling of the herd is not such a bad idea after all?

        Systemic Racism, Covid, Foreign Wars, Climate Change… The powers that be couldn’t give two shifts about any of those things.

        They are all a means to an end, and they finally got a critical mass of “influencers” in entertainment, media, politics and corporate leadership worldwide, to align in unison under a singular cause (climate change).

        The ultimate virtue – saving the planet. And they’ll sacrifice as many of us as it takes to get there, and think their actions will atone them for their sins and somehow reward them with paradise on earth insulated from the hell they’ll put us all through.

        It’s not that complex of an operation even: Get countries to sign on to the Paris accords or some other dumb sh*t policies that are unachievable in the timeframes they targeted without throwing each respective country into chaos and self-destruction (like prohibiting fertilizer).

        It worked with Sri Lanka and who was there to pick up the pieces? WEF stooges.

        It’s working in the Netherlands, Panama, Germany, the UK, Canada and even in the US (although they have to give farmers offers they can’t refuse to stop farming).

        Each respective society collapses and who’s there to swoop in and take over? The WEF muppet-babies.

        From there they can pay lip service to the original cause – making all of us suffer while we try to figure out how to survive under new restriction – fighting each other – while they flaunt as much meat and energy as they want with carbon footprints the size of Texas while we’re all blamed for “destroying the earth”.

        But that’s because it was never about the environment in the first place – it was always about control.

        Look at what they’re doing with your and your children’s money? Sending it off to fight a losing war in Ukraine, lining the pockets of their buddies, passing bills to give 300 billion to big tech etc. Again, lining the pockets of their buddies and those who will help keep the masses in check. They are literally stealing from us and giving it to all their friends like never before in the last 2-and-a-half years.

      Shooting yourself in the foot so many times that it is infected with gangrene and will soon fall off. Taking with it their entire manufacturing base and agricultural foundation. All because a brain dead American president told you to.

      Americans, a People so exceptional that it can always get somebody else to fight their wars and accept their paper dollars in place of food, minerals, and energy. A people so exceptional that they can all drive monster trucks to haul the kids to indoctrination camps (AKA schools). A people so naive that they will march their children off to injection sites to have their genomes altered to protect them against a virus nearly extinct in the wild which almost never infects children. A people so exceptional that they believe $10.00 diesel in Germany has nothing to do with them. A people who believe that money grows on Wall Street rather than on the Great Plains. A people so advanced that water for crops comes from a 10,000 year old deep underground aquifer rather than falling from the sky like it does over the Ukrainian Breadbasket.

      Americans, a people so exceptional that they can call themselves Americans while ignoring the thirty other nations of the Americans.
      Americans, a people so exceptional that they can’t fathom why farmers decide not to plant and harvest their fields when the price of fertilizer has doubled in the past year. Along with a doubling in the price of diesel to run their harvesters. Americans, a people who believe that eggs grow on shelves.

      Americans, the most expensive army in the world running from Afghanistan with their tail between their legs without even bothering to pick up their guns and fancy missiles. Americans, now defeated in their proxy war in Ukraine after spending a trillion dollars on bribes and guns to arm and train the largest military in Europe and killing 14,000 Russian citizens since 2014 to prevent peace breaking out. Americans, shamed in their sanctions war against Russia as Russia grows wealthy and Americans take shelter in tent cities under freeway overpasses.

      Poor, stupid Americans.

      At least the Green Germans have insulated their houses to a standard that allows the whole family to gather in one room around a candle and still stay comfortably above freezing.

      This next winter is bound to be bad in Europe, we are entering the next Grand Solar Minimum, a time of minimal to no sunspots. This occurs roughly in 200 year cycles, and a minimum can last 30 years or more. It’s accompanied by crop failures and upticks in volcanic and earthquake activity.

      Changing subject a bit, persons curious about what life in low tech “poor” countries is like should check out the you tube channel of a young lady calling herself “itchy boots”. She’s been traveling the entire globe for 4 years now on small displacement motorcycles, riding a lot of the time on unpaved roads. She gets many millions of views, and is constantly uploading videos of her latest adventures as they are happening on the road. Her video skills are incredible. She has experiences of stuff you’d expect, wrecks, bandits, border crossing problems etc. – and yet she also mets up with extraordinary friendly and helpful people, in places you wouldn’t expect like Iran.

      What the great reseters won’t tell us is that paved asphalt highways require the black pitch left over from refining petroleum. Concrete is an option but it requires huge amounts of nat gas to make the lime. Either way, if you want paved roads you *must* have large fossil fuel inputs or you’ll be back to dirt and gravel roads. These are the type roads you’ll travel on a lot in third world countries. That’s our future here in the US. In these other countries, and especially in Asia, you’ll see people on small motorbikes everywhere – not enough resources for everyone to be in cars. Not only that, motorbikes can negotiate dirt roads in poor shape in places cars get stuck. Some electric car dreamers might have an EV in the future, but without reliable electric power to charge them, they won’t go far. Also the electric folks will by that time have mostly dirt roads to drive on. Good luck with all that. Myself, I’m planning on doing the motorbike/bicycle routine.

        A couple comments about “itchy boots”.

        In spite of her world girdling experience she has used her platform to support the valiant, freedom loving struggle for democracy on behalf of the euronazis and Biden Bribers in Ukraine.

        As she approached the US border crossing with considerable trepidation after traveling through some of the most conflict ridden areas of Latin America I couldn’t but help notice that the Mexican customs agents directing traffic were all fully masked and wearing surgical gloves. This in spite of the fact that virtually nobody has ever contacted COVID in the open air, it has been known for two years that COVID is not transmitted from moist droplets landing on surfaces, and the current varieties of Omicron Covid are little more life threatening than the common cold.

        The Pandemic of Fear is far longer lasting than any virus.

        By the way, “itchy boots” has had to replace her tires every 2,000 kilometers. That fact alone puts the cost of riding a motorcycle in the same range as a early Gen I Honda Insight or a 2022 electric car (before you have to replace the battery,)

        When I was a kid I visited my grandmother who lived in an isolated valley in Utah.
        For some reason my parents and uncle decided to go over the mountain to Provo.
        Geez. It took all day. The road was a narrow dirt road filled with holes and we had to go about 20 mph.
        Apparently the government came in and put in a 4 lane highway so the valley has filled up with commuters driving over that mountain every day.

        So you propose that Europeans use their antique coal stoves to mount a hologram of burning coal and use that to keep warm with?

        I live in Wyoming, the coal basket of North America. A few years ago I attended a press conference featuring the state’s energy secretary. After a bit of arm twisting he responded to the question of whether Wyoming really has a 200 year supply of coal. “Actually, it is closer to 31 years.” he admitted.

        Better take a selfi of that Happiface and preserve it in your family album for your offspring.

          To add to my comment to your other post.
          I met a very old lady in that small town who told me how she used to ride to those mountains (and she pointed to the other mountains, far away) and there were Indians around.
          My dad told me later that her dad was a farmer but in the winter he would go mine coal at a mine called Winter Camp.
          She would ride with him to the camp in the fall and then lead his horse back to the farm.
          In the spring she would take his horse and ride up to get him from the camp. There were no roads or cars.
          That mine has already played out, like the one my dad grew up in.
          200 years, my ass.

    I remember reading about a tribe in Africa, in the 1800s maybe, who got into a religious fervor about something, and killed all their cows. It did not end well for them. I think Europe is going thru something like this. St. Joan has been replaced by St. Greta, but nobody will get burned at the stake because of carbon footprint.

      Nongqawuse of the Xhosa.

      The Zman wrote about this episode in Taki’s Mag.

      • Penelope Dreadful August 1, 2022 at 5:05 pm #

        Thank you for tip! I never would have remembered that name! Wiki has a good piece about it!:

        In April 1856, 15-year old Nongqawuse and her friend Nombanda, who was between the ages of 8 and 10, went to scare birds from her uncle’s crops in the fields by the sea at the mouth of the Gxarha River in the present day Wild Coast region of South Africa.

        When she returned, Nongqawuse told Mhlakaza that she had met the spirits of two of her ancestors.[4] She claimed that the spirits had told her that the Xhosa people should destroy their crops and kill their cattle, the source of their wealth as well as food. Nongqawuse claimed that the ancestors who had appeared to them said;

        the dead would arise;
        all living cattle would have to be slaughtered, having been reared by contaminated hands;
        cultivation would cease;
        new grain would have to be dug;
        new houses would have to be built;
        new cattle enclosures would have to be erected;
        new milk sacks would have to be made;
        doors would have to be weaved with buka roots
        people must abandon witchcraft, incest and adultery.[4]
        In return the spirits would sweep all European settlers into the sea.[5] The Xhosa people would be able to replenish the granaries, and fill the kraals with more beautiful and healthier cattle.

        Obeying the prophecy
        During this time many Xhosa herds were plagued with “lung sickness”, possibly introduced by European cattle. Mhlakaza did not believe her at first but when Nongqawuse described one of the men, Mhlakaza, himself a diviner, recognised the description as that of his dead brother, and became convinced she was telling the truth.[6]

        Mhlakaza repeated the prophecy to Sarili. The cattle-killing frenzy affected not only the Gcaleka, Sarili’s clan, but the whole of the Xhosa nation. Historians estimate that the Gcaleka killed between 300,000 and 400,000 head of cattle.[1]

        Not all Xhosa people believed Nongqawuse’s prophecies. A small minority, known as the amagogotya (stingy ones), refused to slaughter and neglect their crops, and this refusal was used by Nongqawuse to rationalize the failure of the prophecies over a period of fifteen months (April 1856–June 1857).[1]

        []

        In the aftermath of the crisis, the population of British Kaffraria dropped from 105,000 to fewer than 27,000 due to the resulting famine.

    Let us hope that some form of counter movement can arise to slow down the unstoppable force headed towards the immovable object that is America. When I think back of Barry Obama and his “greatest fear” of a nuke going off in NYC and coupe that with this Ukrainian bullshit and the media anti-Russian propaganda campaign, I cannot help but wonder if Barry might have enough mojo to make it so.

    Of course, at least IMHO, the back door efforts of our Chinese counterparts which can possible even take the form of that third part that Christine Todd (It’s Safe) Whitman is hawking is a much more brilliant way of moving in enough Chinese voters (open borders anyone?) to take over the government “legally” no?

      “Tear/burn it all down” is not a solution: “Human lives”, ‘equality’ and other sentiments are only valued by *civilizations*. A critical mass must have the safety and comfort to imagine *collective benefits* rather than daily individual struggles to survive.

      This presupposes that “Ethical AI” will *ever* be truly adopted. I don’t think humans will:
      1. Be able to implement it.
      2. Trust it.

      I submit that whatever officially-approved “AI” that’s brought out, will be swayed just as much by politics as any existing AI sub-domain is right now.

      Observe the current squawking about facial recognition, and “demands” for ‘oversight’. Also, the endless tweaking of statistics used in crime databases, because “data is racist™”.

      In turn, this triggers inevitable second-guessing and resultant *hand-massaging* as soon as the ‘output’ deviates from Narrative-of-the-Month. The end result is *the same GIGO* as before it was invented, only faster, more intrusive and worst of all, *uncritically accepted by more technical illiterates*.

After discussing interlocking treaties, secret agreements, social unrest and our host’s issue about modern times- “complexity” the curator’s conclusion was “The best explanation for why the war had to happen is that no one can explain why it had to happen.” No our host has to give me the dread with “….Western Civ stood in amazement at its achievements and in thrall to its glittering future. The slaughter in the trenches of WWI shattered that confidence, ….” No one can explain why we taxpayers have to dump billions into supporting the Ukraine’s fight against Russia.

      “No one can explain why we taxpayers have to dump billions into supporting the Ukraine’s fight against Russia.” The globalists desperately want control of Russia’s resources, without which they cannot achieve full spectrum dominance. So far, looks like it will be a catastrophic failure on a scale unprecedented in human history. Declaring war on Russia and your own civilization at the same time sure looks like a losing strategy to me, but what do I know. The hubris of these guys is off the charts and there appears to be an element of genuine insanity as well. It even looks like they might want to mess with China as well!

            Do you seriously believe and hold that what we saw in the J6 riot was ‘political action’? Are you fucking kidding???

            In any case, you’d probably know (if you actually read anything that wasn’t from Newsmax or Tucker Carlson or Mike Pillow), that the riot at the Capitol was only the final act in a long-standing plan to overthrow the Constitution. It started in 2015 when Trump first declared that if he lost it would only be because it was rigged. He’s been telling that lie (and still is) since then, ffs.

            Then, it got serious after the count was in, and all sorts of nefarious, unconstitutional, and illegal activity started, led by such stellar examples of intellectual rigour as Rudi Guiliani & Sidney Powell.

            After three hours of rioting, and only once it became clear that law enforcement was going to win that battle, only then did The Liar In Chief put out a call to “Go home. We love you, you’re very special to us.” What a two-faced, man-child of a loser he is.

            Now, thanks to the J6 Committee hearings, we have learned so much MORE detail about all this behind-the-scenes planning. It’s quite shocking.

            If the tables were turned, you, as a GOP/Trump Cultist/Whatever You Identify Yourself As would be calling for the summary executions of these people.

            I agree ef, the question is, what will be the result? The Biden Crime Family has been irrefutably on China’s payroll for decades so one has to assume that those in power in DC are going to be following orders, right? America stands as a roadblock to Herr Slob’s, I mean Herr Schwab’s global conquest, and I for one believe that China is the perfect instrument to make that happen.

            It would make more sense for China to simply take us over politically by moving in hundreds of millions of their excess population into those human storage units being constructed and near completion all over the population centers of our land, rather than by force. My money is on that option strongarmed perhaps by these peripheral clashes.

            Walter,
            What will be the result? Hard to say, considering that it is difficult to parse the “Inscrutable” mind. However, I do not think that the Chinese will “pull the trigger” over this.

            …But I would not bet the ranch on it….

          • Walter B August 2, 2022 at 4:38 pm #

            I am certain that the Chinese are going to take full advantage of out open borders and move 500 billion of their own people here into the massive amounts of apartment complexes, supported by tons of warehouses, all over the country that are nearing completion right now.

            Take us over “legally” by supporting the new political party that Christine Todd Whitman is backing and own the place outright without firing a shot.

        She’s meeting with a group of separatists and this is why China is so angry and adamant that she is not to go to Taiwan. I don’t think China is bluffing anymore than Russia was when it said “not one more inch east” to NATO.

        Exactly the question to ask. Why in God’s name does she, of all people, need to make a personal appearance there…for anything? “Diplomacy”…pffft.

        Either she’s getting her send-off vacation tour and she figured “Hey, I’ve never been there, let’s book it!” and they announced the visit and then realized they probably should’ve been more tactful (but now can’t back down, cuz Murica), or they’re just trying to stir the pot for some reason (none of which could be good, as these aren’t the old Winston Churchill days where we trusted out “leaders” to be good at “diplomatic stuff n whatnot”).

        Anything she wants to say to the government of Taiwan or the mentioned Separatists can easily be done via phone or a freaking Zoom call from DC.

        This is stupid. But now that it’s a thing, she has to show up or make us look intimidated, like Marty McFly had to show up to pretend to fight Biff Tannen in the public square. Except she’s 82.

    I like the idea of atonement. It fits with the ‘old tale’ guidelines as described in the bible about S&G.

    Of course the tradional rendering is about the excesses of sexual depravity, but perhaps it too was ultimately driven by a complete abandonment of all principles by bored and debauched leadership in a final act of destruction.

    Which ties really nicely back to pure Darwinism: imagine what a zebra herd would soon degrade to if lions were eliminated. That is, take away the competitive spirit, the challenge of survival, and everything goes to pot.

    The current crop of elites garnered so much wealth and power during the boom times that it naturally induced the normal reaction of innui. But then of course they know exactly where we’re all headed, so at this point its time to party on the titanic *before* we hit the iceberg.

      “…conditioned not to think…” and FEAR is the lubricant. They got us good in the 1960s, with “balance of terror” and that was no joke because thermonuclear exchange, accidental or on purpose (or even “accidentally on purpose” as we kids used to put it) was an omnipresent concern, particularly for an Air Force brat raised on military bases. Fear of the Commies of course, as well, with the sinister “domino theory” dragging us into what Dugout Doug MacArthur repeatedly warned against: “Never get involved in a land war in Asia”.

      Later it was concern about economic disaster as those wicked Arabs turned off our oil spigot. Over the course of decades the fine-tuning began to work more and more effectively. In the 60s it was “turn off that TV” but from the 80s onward young materialists (along with religious fanatics and the hedge-fund offspring of the free-spirited hippies) were easy to enslave. No need to threaten and terrorize the public, a la Hitler or Stalin; just keep them in a suspended state of ongoing near-panic and they become as putty in your hands.

      Remember John Ashcroft and “duct tape your windows and doors”, not to mention demonic kitties? Nonsense and unthinkable in an earlier generation; they would have laughed you off the lectern, or pelted you, apprpropriately, with rotten fruit.

      Now the fear is a standing wave. Neat-o.

    In terms of blinkered thinking, the Covid Vaccine is very much like religion. Its alleged benefits are accepted as a matter of faith; the observable damage it causes is simply denied.

    Married friends both got re-re-re-rejabbed last week. The woman has had no noticeable reaction; her husband is still quite ill with symptoms five days later, just as he would be if he – you know – had Covid. Both faithfully remain grateful to have the benefit of the vaccine.

    No meaningful conclusions can be drawn from their having received another booster, nor can any prediction be made about how they are now “protected.”

    Shit happens, or perhaps doesn’t. If shit does not happen, then it’s “Thank The Jab” (or the deity of your choice) for this beneficence. If shit does rain down, then it’s the working out of the inscrutable Jab’s mysterious ways but never, of course, a failing on its part.

          It does make you wonder where they got it then.

          We know that SARS 2 was a bioweapon, SARS1 tweaked to be more contagious and lethal. But there are still people who think that SARS TWO was a ”novel virus”.
          No one asks how a novel virus got from the middle of China to a nursing home in Washington in a month.
          And no one asks how a “new variant” made it from India to the US in the middle of summer.
          And no one asks how a “new variant” in South Africa could be named on a Friday and spread all over the US within the next week. Said “new variant” so different from the ones out there that the chances of it “mutating” naturally were one in a trillion.
          And now no one is asking how “new variants” are more transmissable AND more deadly AND are infecting people who make every effort to stay away from the sick in the middle of summer.
          And Brandon being injected 4 times and then getting sick twice even though he took the ”effective” new drug?

            They pulled that “little boy” shit with AIDS also.
            Suspicions were building that AIDS was a bioweapon, so the US announced that they found a freezer in Africa and in that freezer was a vial of blood left over from the 50s and it belonged to a little boy who had died from an unknown disease, and they tested it and lo and behold! it turned out to be AIDS! So see? No way it was a bioweapon because that little boy in the 50s had it.

            So this clinic in Africa kept a vial of blood for 40 years and never cleaned out the freezer and the power never went off and somehow there was someone still working there who remembered whose vial of blood that was and what had happened to him. And somehow he had spread it to gay men in SF, NY and Haiti in the 80s.

    They can “update” the shots all they want. All that does is speed up the mutation rate, since it’s the non-lethal immune pressure from the “vaccine” that drives the selection of the fittest variants that will survive and become the next Big Thing.

          The Maker, the Hand of Creation, is something else. Its five forces- gravity’s pull, electromagnetism’s push, nuclear binding, nuclear release, and eddies of time dilution in which they accrete, are as far above mind, and as relentless, as a tidal wave.

      Before I left the med ctr I had been with for the past 20 years, I felt like I was walking among some kind of zombies that refused to consider traditional immunology concepts. They were unable to discuss any issues around the mRNA gene therapy as a vax, and spouted ‘its safe and effective’ as if they had lost all discernment. No joke, just like zombies.

They literally have to rely on censorship instead of attempting to rationally explain any aspect of this nightmare.

        They also patiently explained how the spike protein doesn’t actually enter your system so the shots weren’t “experimental gene therapy”, but vaccines.

        Guess what? Nobody knew what the damn spike protein would do, they knew what they hoped it would do, and they had no reason to even hope that, because these shots were old and so far failed.

      John K, I don’t believe that story even though I admire Dr. Malone and listen to his giving of the data.
      But the story that “you don’t vaccinate during a pandemic” assumes a pandemic. A real pandemic, where people all around you are sick and the virus is hopping from person to person.
      But we never had that. The hype was one thing, the reality is another.
      There was never any pressure on the virus to mutate there was only pressure at Fort Dietrick to come up with an New and Improved Version that would scare the proles into submitting to the jabs.
      So we went the first year with scary headlines and lurid stories, but most people were unaffected.
      They rolled out the vaccine at the same time they rolled out a Scary New Variant from the UK, which spontaneously generated in one dude in Colorado (with no exposure) and one in San Diego, and then spread all over the country (according to the media) killing people right and left in nursing homes that had managed to escape the first year, but started killing patients of “covid” right after the had their prioritized shots.
      The resistant vexed our ruling overlords, so presto! we got Delta, which somehow started in India, although India had gone a year of remarkably little covid, even though there are a billion of them living in crowded slums and packed like sardines when the travel. And although we had gone through a year of lockdown no one bothered to stop travel from India, so we are told that is why it came here (in summer) just in time to scare the resistant into submission.
      They also told us that children were dying like flies in pediatric intensive care units, although the hospitals so accused denied it.
      And now we have a “new variant” that targets children, just in time to get those parents resistant to the idea of jabbing their already immune children with a GMO product that has already been shown to be spectacularly ineffective at preventing disease.
      And I’m supposed to believe that this is all a natural occurrence?
      I don’t.

          Amazingly enough, the US/Euro media is not reporting on it!

            I’ve often wondered why China reacted with such severity to the initial outbreak of Wuhan COVID 19. There are several hypothesis that fit the policy reaction. One of them is the fact that the CCP had a close eye on the actual development of the Virus along with Gates and Fauci,. The CCP concluded that the initial genetic design received from the US Ft Detrick was engineered to target specific characteristics of the Chinese genome and that it’s release was an act of biological warfare that needed to be fought with a zero covid policy.

          • Paula D August 3, 2022 at 12:27 pm #

            Thorshammer, I am fb friends with a woman with contacts high up in China.
            The reason they reacted so strongly to SARS 2 is because they thought it had escaped from the Wuhan lab. It was a logical thing to think.
            But as they researched it they realized that it actually came from the US, probably brought to Wuhan by those sick US soldiers at the November Wuhan Military Games.
            That is why they have changed their tune and are now calling for an honest investigation into the origins.

      • ThorsHammer August 5, 2022 at 11:17 am #

        Paula, your summary of the roll-out of the Pandemic of Fear is excellent but it needs an earlier time line start.

        In early February of 2020 a doctor friend offered me access to a new testing procedure available only to medical personnel. Being of a contrary mind set, I began to study this new viral threat. The “experts” especially from the UK were comparing it to the Spanish Flu and forecasting millions of fatalities in short order. At this point there was not a single recorded case of COVID19 in the USA, but a cruise ship called the Diamond Princes had been quarantined in port in Japan with all 3500 passengers and crew under strict lock down. A perfect Perri dish for the study of this new disease. As information began to trickle in it became apparent that the new disease was no where as near deadly as was being projected by the “experts.” Elderly couples sharing a tiny shipboard stateroom would have one member experience not even a sniffle, while the other would have severe flu symptoms. In the end, the fatality count was in the low 30’s out of 3,500, similar to the seasonal flu.

        As Bob Dylan said, “Somethings happening here, but you don’t know what it is, do you?, Mr. Jones?” I submit that they did know, and fraudulently manufactured a Pandemic of Fear to create a monopoly market for the mRNA delivery systems that they had been unable to advance to the point where they were safe enough to even be used on animal test subjects.

        Within weeks a worldwide pandemic was declared, and daily new cases shot up into the thousands. Every one who set foot in a hospital or doctors office was tested using a deep nasal swab which was shipped off to a laboratory to determine whether the subject had COVID19. The test procedure used is called the PCR, a process for which its inventor Kory Mullis received the Nobel Prize. Unfortunately Mullis died not long before the outbreak of COVID, but he spent the final year of his life in public appearances explaining why his PCR test is worthless for medical diagnosis.

        For the drug pushers from Pfizer and Moderna this was a perfect opportunity. A scientific sounding test that was obtrusive enough that the subjects would not forget it, with its inventor dead so there was no one to push back against the weight of their PR campaigns. Almost overnight the PCR test became the unchallenged gold standard for determining the presence of COVID. By setting the Cr at any level they chose they could ramp the COVID Pandemic up or down to any level that fits the political needs of the week. Even a year after the CDC had finally declared it unsuitable and recommended that it be abandoned, it is still the most widely used COVID test in the world.

        When you test an asymptomatic subject for COVID and the result is positive, the probability that that result a false positive is 97.5%.
        On that basis we have denied the ability to travel,destroyed careers, and censored thought.

        The viral infection COVID is a real disease, but its actual extent is buried under layers of camouflage. Regardless of whether it was engineered as a bio-weapon in a laboratory, a gain of function research project gone wrong, or a step in a planned population reduction program. As a viral disease it has not been very effective, although the gene modification pogrom that was used under its cover may prove to be far more fatal.

        As a psychological attack on Ho;mo Sapiens, the COVID Pandemic of Fear has been successful beyond the wildest dreams of its promoters. Fully 1/3 of the citizens of the USA have been rendered incapable of rational thought, willing to be boosted into infinity and march their fully immune young children off to have their natural immune systems genetically altered.

        Only Replicants like the post-injection New Americans could be induced to march down the road to WWIII with their eyes wide shut.

    • Jarek August 1, 2022 at 12:17 pm #

      By that logic, we should have never used vaccines at all. And you may be right about that.

      In any case, this isn’t a vaccine. It’s something that hacks your entire system to turn it into a spike protein factory against the previous variant. What about the next one? Why, just hack it again! The incredible coarseness of intellect is appalling. They wouldn’t treat a car or computer this way, but their own bodies (or that of other people at least)? No problem!

      • JohnAZ August 1, 2022 at 12:59 pm #

        I say again.

        If the liars in charge of the mRNA effort had an accurate model, where the mRNA and s proteins stayed in the muscle tissue and did its thing, things would be very different.

        However, injecting mRNA into muscles with lots of blood vessels that will spirit away the MRNA throughout the body is just plain stupid, criminal.

        What the heck is it going to take to declare the mRNA vaxx a threat to humanity?

        BTW, the new Novavax vaccine, the savior, isn’t. It is a nanoparticles covered in guess what? S proteins.

        Fool me once —-.

        • Paula D August 1, 2022 at 1:46 pm #

          JohnAZ you were a nurse.
          Did you ever give a shot of Demerol and tell the patient “In 20 minutes that part of your muscle will feel no pain”?
          Did you ever give even a SC shot, like epinephrine or heparin, and expect that it wouldn’t affect the entire body?
          That whole “Gosh, you knew that when you inject something into the body it doesn’t just stay put in the muscle” line is complete and total bullshit, just like everything else they told us.

          • Paula D August 1, 2022 at 7:17 pm #

            I meant “Gosh, who knew” .

            Paula D

            That is why, long ago, I brought up the idea that a big problem with the vaxx is the fact it is injected and the model is bunk.

            Hyper saturated muscle tissue in athletes may explain why so many are affected.

            I have noticed that no work has been done to confirm any of this.

        None of the vaccines in current use in the USA are vaccines by the original usage of the term, which was to take serum from cowpox blisters of cows – hence the “vacchs” and deposit it under the skin of humans – a live, unattenuated virus, which caused infection. There are several live virus vaccines in use, such as rubella, but they are all attenuated.

Kerry used one of his lackeys to flagrantly barge in line ahead of us and everybody else, as if he had some urgent senatorial need for a snowboard, like there was about to be an emergency meeting, out on the slopes, of the Joint Halfpipe Committee.

            Pornography does not empower women. It disempowers them – that is its purpose. It was the first stage in disempowering women; the trans agenda is the second.

            Porn-obsessed modern man’s quest is not for ‘pie’ – is for more porn. That is its purpose. As Naomi Wolf famously and accurately said, in the face of wall-to-wall pornography, real women are just ‘bad porn’.

          Many women would have no problem at all with being stay-at-home wives and mothers, except for one thing: the job is uncompensated.

          Perhaps you should consider some line of uncompensated work for yourself. You could travel around barefoot fixing people’s plumbing for free. (Though I doubt that you know how to do that.) Or you could fix people’s cars for free. (You probably don’t know how to do that either.) You could even make fruit pies for people for free. (Can’t do that either?) Can you make a sammich? Most people can do that, though they don’t necessarily do it very well.

          I suppose it’s unsurprising that you think it is desirable for people to do uncompensated work for you.

          You should try it. Almost everyone feels as you do and would love to have people work for them for free.

            I see you have arrived at clarity on this matter: the only possible option is government force, as there is no possibility that men would voluntarily treat wives fairly, justly, responsibly, and honorably in economic/financial matters.

            It is good to see that you have comprehended the feminist point of view that men are fundamentally incapable of decency and honor and will only respond to force.

            Ant: So you’ve won. Force appropriation of wealth from men to “their wives” is the law of the land – and you’re still not happy. You people want even more.

            Thus women are seen for what they are. The Ancient Vedic system seems to be the only option, whereby a woman is passed from her Father to her Husband to her Son. She cannot be allowed to ever manage her own affairs, lest she destroy herself, others, and society.

            Christianity tried to spiritualize marriage too much, as if it was a contract between equals. Since it’s a contract between spiritual equals, now you folks demand an equal share of the material goods. The spiritual stuff can go to hell. And of course equal means as getting as much as possible, preferably all of it.

            So yes! A contract, not purely spiritual, between families, between Men in other words, that helps to knit the culture together. A dowry is paid. She gets some jewels perhaps. The Father gets money or livestock.

            Voting? It is to laugh. Women have no legitimate interests apart from their husbands, fathers, brothers, and sons. So their interests are represented by them far better than she could ever do for herself.

            druid, nothing to resolve. As Amman pointed out there is such a thing as wedded bliss. I have no way of knowing the percentage or if it’s up or down from previous times, but there have always been happily married couples and unhappy couples.
            The only difference now is that it’s easier for unhappy people to leave, male or female.
            Is that good or bad? For me, leaving my lousy first husband worked out, because then I met my great second husband. So I’m inclined to like this system better.
            The same men who decry this system expose themselves as woman-haters in their comments. I’m guessing that no change in society would help them be happily married. It’s a personal flaw.

          • Anthea August 2, 2022 at 5:00 am #

            @ Rhett Dawson:

            “women were the very heart of the family and were compensated immensely for fulfilling that critical role….”

            Meh. Sometimes they were compensated, and sometimes they weren’t. Or worse, sometimes they struggled to support their families by taking in washing and such because their husbands would not provide, often due to alcoholism. Or in some cases, as with Bronson Alcott, they simply would not work. These instances–which were far from uncommon–were made worse because divorce was either illegal or carried an immense social stigma.

            This was the reason that the first thing women voted for as soon as they got the vote was Prohibition. You will also notice that women lost all interest in Prohibition as soon as divorce became an option. That’s the main reason, if not the real reason, why there is no modern Prohibition movement.

            Nowadays, most men want their wives to work outside the home; it’s a very real expectation. This is true whether or not one income would be sufficient to support the family. IMHO, for the past few decades going back to about 1970, one modest income would have been sufficient to support a family, by 1950s standards. (By 1950s standards, I mean the family would have one car, one landline telephone, and one TV, and their home would be around 1,000 square feet.)

            While being a stay-at-home wife and mother does not NECESSARILY mean you will be uncompensated, it’s a deal where you may or may not be compensated, depending on whether your husband decides to compensate you. Or your kids may or may not get shoes and winter coats, depending on whether your husband will pay for them.

            So you may want to consider whether you would agree to fix people’s plumbing or cars, or bake them fruit pies, with no assurance that you would be compensated at all, and no assurance as to how much you would be compensated.

            How well the traditional stay-at-home wife and mother family structure works out seems to be mostly a matter of cultural traditions–whether traditional values about family life are strong and there are high cultural expectations about responsibility. We don’t have those values today, and the results were often sub-optimal back when we did.

            You can see that the traditional family structure seems to work out fairly well among Mexican-Americans. You can also see that there is a strong sense of obligation to provide, on the part of the men, by the flow of remittances into Mexico.

            I thought I would also mention that, up until the 1950s-1960s, when a young man left home to go to work, in some ethnicities there was a strong expectation that he send part of his income home to his mother, at least if she were widowed or too old to work. If both parents were elderly, money was sent home to Mom and Dad. This is probably where a good share of those remittances sent off to Mexico are going. It’s worth remembering that they’re being paid by people who are at the bottom rung, economically.

            So I’d say that most of the reason we have so few fruit pies being baked is because we live in a dying (or dead) culture. Hubby can’t be relied on to provide, and no one is going to help support Mom in her old age if she doesn’t have a retirement income from work, and is entitled to little or no Social Security because she was rarely or never employed outside the home.

          • Jarek August 2, 2022 at 11:58 am #

            Extraordinary. The complete projection of all problems on to men by Anthea. Women have no moral agency at all in her view – just as Men’s Right Advocates say.

            Women raged about being denied access to “careers” and the System eagerly complied. Wages fell and now women have to work as one person can’t support a middle class life anymore. Anthea blames men – ignoring the huge role feminist demands played in this.

            Again, perhaps she is right, unconsciously. Women may indeed have no moral agency and thus shouldn’t be allowed to sign contracts, vote, etc.

          • Paula D August 2, 2022 at 12:31 pm #

            druid, that is not how the statement goes. You invented the second part and are now complaining that it isn’t fair.

            The saying is: If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy. Period.
            The clear implication is that if mama is happy the entire family benefits, therefore it is a good thing to make mama happy, which is clearly her husband’s role. You know, tradition.

            There is no: “If daddy ain’t happy nobody cares” You made that up.

          • Jarek August 2, 2022 at 1:08 pm #

            Yes Paula, he made it up. He was creative. He added to Tradition.

            Does that mean what he says isn’t true?

            Many people came to late 19th Century, early 20th Century America and said it was a unofficial Matriarchy. Sayings like this show the truth of it.

            “Meh. Sometimes they were compensated, and sometimes they weren’t.

Or in some cases, as with Bronson Alcott, they simply would not work. These instances–which were far from uncommon–” — Anthea

            Meh. Sometimes women were/are neurasthenic and adulterous (read Flaubert; keep up with psych med data which shows 23% of all women hammering back scripts) and profligate (suburban mom stereotypes are widespread for a reason) and just plain nasty and vengeful (see divorce court data and rulings).

            Speaking of adultery, women used to make up about 30% of cheating. Now, with the necessity of women working (oh, great feminist freedom!), women have much more opportunity, what with economic independence and independent travel, to cheat. IOW, women were never more ‘moral’, they just lacked the opportunity to sow their oats. Now, cheating initiated by sex is close to 50/50.

            I find it funny you bring up alcoholism. As I say, many women are drugged up to the eyeballs. They also abuse drink. You don’t hear about it on the news because we have a feminist press, but also because, psychologically, when women get juiced, they tend to become depressed and withdrawn. No ‘news’ to report on sensationalistic TV. When men get paralyzed, however, many get aggressive — bar fights, even murder. Women internalize, and neglect the raising of their children or care of their husbands, OTOH.

            “Nowadays, most men want their wives to work outside the home; it’s a very real expectation. This is true whether or not one income would be sufficient to support the family.” — Anthea

            Your last sentence quoted above is bullshit.

            I know quite a few families who are well-off enough because hubby makes six figs where he doesn’t want his wife to work at all. It’s expected she cook, clean, be pleasant and monogamous. They absolutely don’t want their women to work at all.

            But your speculation on ‘most men’ is groundless, anyway. The vast majority of couples, of course, have to work because the home-wrecking globalists get more work for less pay in addition to enjoying gov’t overreach from family dependence on their services. Feminism!

            “While being a stay-at-home wife and mother does not NECESSARILY mean you will be uncompensated, it’s a deal where you may or may not be compensated, depending on whether your husband decides to compensate you. Or your kids may or may not get shoes and winter coats, depending on whether your husband will pay for them.” — Anthea

            What a weak, wildly generalizing argument.

            Yeah, there are shitty men. And there are shitty women who refuse to “compensate” their men by not being able or willing to boil an egg, by marrying for money and then freezing out their men in the bedroom and transferring their emotional flow exclusively to their children, by trying to dominate the moral sphere by dictatorial decrees on vaxx attitudes and inter-family policies and child-rearing decisions and vegan activism and new age nuttery.

            So what’s your point? All Man bad; All Woman good?

            “So you may want to consider whether you would agree to fix people’s plumbing or cars, or bake them fruit pies, with no assurance that you would be compensated at all, and no assurance as to how much you would be compensated.” — Anthea

            What a sad spiritual view of relationships.

            If you’re really worried about your tit-for-tat exchange, your parsimonious, cold-blooded ‘equality’, just get a pre-nup and you’re good to go!

            But if you really need that, maybe the onus is on you to investigate a potential marriage partner for integrity before you start spreading unfounded suspicion. The same is the responsibility for men, too, of course.

            “We don’t have [strong, traditional] values today, and the results were often sub-optimal back when we did.” — Anthea

            Why don’t we have strong, traditional values today? Do you ever ask that, without ideological assumption?

            When the results were sub-optimal it’s because no cultural value system is ideal. Human weakness and evil will always undercut it to varying extents. The question is: how much will a traditional, value-based system ameliorate the propensity for humans (women as well as men) to be happy and harmonious? I’d say it was (and is) far more likely.

          Amazon’s new LOTR TV series, set in the second age, is premiering in September. It concerns the rise of Sauron and the forging of the rings of power. The trailers and teasers have Tolkien’s fans up in arms. It looks like another woke nightmare of dreary preachiness doomed to failure. There is a character they’ve named Galadriel, who is actually the rebirth of Xena, Warrior Princess. Elrond plays an advisory roll. It is Galadriel who leads the armies. There’s a black dwarf queen, and a black elf in a romance with a hobbit (called “guess who’s coming to second breakfast” by one wit). I don’t, per se, object to the inclusion of people of color to the story. Apparently, Amazon has strict quotas. It might have gone almost unremarked if they weren’t making such a big deal about it, effectively rubbing fans noses in their break from canon and asking what they are going to do about it? I think they may be about to find out. There are rumors of panic in the halls of Amazon, and they are certainly engaging in vigorous damage control. They’ve assured us there is going to be LGBTQ+ representation too, which frankly, is not for my eyes to see. An executive producer has stated it is time for Tolkein to reflect the world as it is, apparently forgetting we’re speaking of a fantasy world, written specifically for the people of England, and not understanding that those who seek Middle Earth do so to escape the world as it is for a little time. The new Game of Thrones prequel is similarly corrupted. May they get broke.

            Amazon couldn’t buy the rights to LOTR, or The Hobbit or Silmarilion. They couldn’t get the rights to Tolkein’s unfinished books and stories or his letters. All they got for a rumored 250 million to his estate was the appendices (150 pages) from the end of The Return of the King. Basically, they bought the right to use LOTR in their title and have loosely based their story on snips from the appendices. They thought they’d bought the fan base too. Since the information is so sparce in the appendicies, they have liberally “adapted” it to suit their purpose, which was to make a lot of money and take this opportunity to push their woke philosphy. The two writters they hired have only the last, failed Star Trek movie to their credit, but were apparently in tune with Amazon’s vision (smart boys). Does this sound like a team to trust a one billion dollar project to? They fired Shippley, the Tolkein scholar and expert, early on, though they continue to reference him. Bezos said he wanted his own Game of Thrones. This is it, and I wish him the joy of it. They have committed to five seasons for a cost of 1 billion dollars–the most expensive TV series in history.

          “Hmmm… what did you just say?” Perhaps the basket phrase, “vacation from stupid” suggested a bit too much of an inclusive population. Not intended if perceived.

          That phrase was in reference to the asymptotic trajectory of brainless sheep “with an emphasis on obeisance to “experts”.” I, for one, could use a vacation from them. A vacation from stupid would be an ephemeral hiatus from their ubiquitous and profligate demands, and well worth the trade for my simple pleasure of sight-seeing our great country. That’s all.

    • Anthea August 1, 2022 at 1:02 pm #

      The only way we could get a “massive uprising” would be if inflation were to reduce the value of food stamps by about half for people in the inner cities. Even then, their first recourse would be shoplifting at the grocery store. Their second recourse would be shoplifting at retail stores and re-selling the merchandise. And the government will increase their food stamps.

      For the most part, whites and the rural poor will get a second job, tighten their belts wherever possible, and/or eat more beans, rice, cornbread, and other carbs–and maybe learn to cook.

      The middle class will ask for a raise, seek a higher paying job, and cut back on discretionary spending. Some might take up gardening…. Or learn to cook.

      Some other rural people will do what we’re doing. We planned a big garden this year, and both my daughter and I are pretty skilled at that. My daughter has a large flock of chickens. I expect my son-in-law to bag a deer or two this fall. And I am shooting rabbits. I don’t think food will be a problem. The biggest problem will be winter heating bills and, to some extent, high gas prices. But I don’t think we’ll be rising up or rioting and looting just yet.

      • mrs_saj August 1, 2022 at 9:32 pm #

        Anthea, You shoot rabbits? Can you share more about how you clean and cook them? I’ve got the gardening thing down, but I’m still missing some other basic life skills.

        • Anthea August 2, 2022 at 5:36 am #

          I bought a .22 about a month ago. It turns out that you need to be a pretty good shot to kill a rabbit with a .22. (You almost need to hit them in the head–though the forequarters will often do.) Most people hunt rabbits and squirrels with a shotgun. Too much kick for me.

          The guy at the gun shop told me that his 7-year-old granddaughter shoots squirrels for dinner with an air gun (as they are inside the city limits). I figured that if she could do it, I could do it. But it does take some practice.

          I fried my first rabbit today, after killing and cleaning it last night and putting it to soak in brine in the fridge overnight. It was tasty but tough. But I only tried the back legs, so maybe the loin portions are better. I’m thinking I’ll use a crock pot next time. So I’m still learning the best way to cook them.

          As for cleaning them, I watched several YouTube videos. Rabbits are pretty easy to skin. As for disposing of the innards, head, feet, and skin, I left them out overnight and they were gone in the morning. My son-in-law said he just threw dead rabbits into the woods behind the house and let the predators take care of them. They used to have a dog that was very diligent about “rabbit patrol,” and he killed rabbits constantly.

          The guy at the gun shop told me that you need a VERY sharp knife with a 3″-4″ blade to skin and process a rabbit. I bought a set of knives (from Amazon, I think) for field-dressing wild game, up to and including a deer. So I would suggest buying a good set of knives. My set has a small hatchet, some scissors-type things, and what looks like a small saw. I think the job would have been a lot harder without the proper knives.

          Watch that you don’t cut yourself, as good knives are VERY sharp.

    China bombs the planes, or shoots them up.

    Then puts an aerial blockade in place to trap her in place.

    No one killed or hurt.

    Definitely makes China’s point that they are in charge.

    • Jarek August 1, 2022 at 12:52 pm #

      Nancy then gets plastic surgery to slant her eyes, adopts Chinese customs, and then starts running for office.

      I had similar thoughts about the Chicoms waiting for Nancy to land, then taking her hostage.

    I remember reading that even in the darkest coldest days of WW2 Germans didn’t touch the Black Forest.
    And Russian scientists working at a seed bank starved to death rather than eat the stored seeds.
    But now Germans have already been cutting their forests, as well as forests in Ukraine and Romania, not to keep warm, but to build new houses, I guess for the “refugees”.
    And Russia put a highway right through the seed bank.
    There are too many people in the US and Europe to go back to the old ways even if anyone was capable of living without gas and Pringles.
    I guess our overlords realize that more than we do and are proactively doing something about it.
    Then they plan on taking over Russia, Ukraine and their farmland and fossil fuel supplies. It’ll be a lot easier when they are depopulated.
    That is the plan as I see it.

        Vlad was NOT a WEF Young Global Leader. Schwab asserted that but it is not true. Do some research.

        • Rhett Dawson August 1, 2022 at 2:18 pm #

          My research has led me to believe that Vlad Putin is indeed a WEF YGL grad. The fact that he is now playing a key role in bringing down the seemingly otherwise completely moronic West lends credence to this well-known and widely distributed belief.

          You claim that Klaus Schwab lied about Vlad Putin being a WEF YGL grad. OK. Interesting.

          1) What, do you think, his motivation was for this otherwise outlandish claim?

          2) I am doing research right now. What? Are you saying that only the perfectly prepared and research-completed may discuss world events on CFN? That would sure prune the commentators around here, right? Discussion here is research. Smarten up.

          3) In order to facilitate my continued research, if you have evidence to the contrary of what I assert, it is your responsibility to provide it while refuting – not simply take a contrary position without any backing evidence and insult your adversary like a 6th grader. That’s how research works. Right?

          4) A little decorum, please.

But Germany does need this change desperately because at issue is, actually, a survival of Germans as people. Yes, this is how serious this all is.”

      They have to repent for accepting Allied propaganda. Unlike the Japanese. The Japanese bowed a bit and did what they had to do – but they never spat on themselves and their ancestors the way the Germans did.

    “Learned helplessness,”

    The Elementary and secondary Education Act (ESEA) was passed in 1965 under the Johnson administration. This social engineering evolved into No Child Left Behind (Every Child Left Behind). Everyone you know who is fifty years of age or less have gone through the “Learned helplessness” indoctrination program.

    The path (too many) in the medical profession have taken during the last two years was paved by the education professional’s who sought only to protect their pensions as they abandoned their nation and her children.

    ” I got mine”, “The one who dies with the most toys wins” and “Greed is good” – our society sought out and paid highly persons to spread the gospel of decadence. or as i like to call it “a cracker in a cadillac”

    The Red Sox’ hideous sky blue and yellow uniforms debuted last year as part of Major League Baseball’s idiotic “city connect” I initiative, whereby all MLB teams have to create alternate uniforms using elements of the home city — in Boston’s case, a version of the Boston Marathon number tags. The San Fran Giants have orange jerseys and hats that feature stylized Golden Gate Bridges.

    “As in the USA, the governments of Euroland have declared war on their own people….”

    The dirty little secret in all of history is that virtually every form of authority over a population is always at war with their own people. Sometimes this war is a quiet one using soft censorship and tight control of the money supply and Wokeism of the Day. At the other extreme is full-on population extermination. But at the heart of the entire spectrum is a hatred of The People by the ruling entity.

    “But it was still a bit of a shock last week to see the Boston Red Sox playing in sky blue and yellow uniforms in solidarity with the neo-Nazi failing state, Ukraine.”

    Sports leagues have long been co-opted to be just another arm of The State. The Circuses aspect of the Bread and Circuses societal control system. Whether it is fly-overs of stadiums by aerial death machines or the quieter Social and Political virtue signaling and engineering done by The State… We the People are always being told what we are supposed to believe and support… OR ELSE. And all this in The Land of Freedom. Where We are free to do as we are told. Always and forever.

    “America’s elites are secretly disgusted with themselves, especially about the wealth they have been able to grift out of all the racketeering that has replaced honest work in our country…”

    If any of them are, it’s only a tiny few. Most all of them do not have the capacity to feel remorse. That was long erased from their psychological makeup years ago if They had such capacity at all. You do not get the heights of wealth and power by having a conscience. That is the first thing that has to go. And once conscience has been eliminated, there is unlimited freedom to do anything you want to people and feel good about doing so.

    “Pharma and its enablers in the NIH-CDC matrix actually have no idea what variants are coming…”

    Sure They do. Just check in with their cutting-edge bio research labs to see a list of coming attractions. Just like the tradition of the auto industry… guys in white coats are always working on the new models to be rolled out when the market and timing is right.

    • Rhett Dawson August 1, 2022 at 3:03 pm #

      “The world has changed! The world will never be the same!”

      Then all us ticket-holders needed to stand and cheer like mindless, thoughtless bots while the local pro team flashed some warrior home on leave from occupying Iraq or Afghanistan on the video screen during a TV-broadcast commercial timeout.

      It came out later that, of course, the pro leagues and teams were 100% on-board because these were revenue streams – paid, live advertisements to brow-beat the old and entice the young.

    Beryl & Paula,

    It is counter-productive for you to perform amateur psychology trying to guess the true thoughts of a ‘patient’ that you have never even met.

    Rather than wasting our time speculating on my personal situation or your assumptions of my motives, we’d all be better served if you commented on (and, yes, even argued against) what I actually say.

    1) I am irrelevant. This is not about me and my enjoyment in a slice of fine a la mode fruit pie.

    2) This is about the Rockefeller-led societal fabric-destroying hood-winking that was Women’s Lib. Their elaborate con perfectly coincided with their 50-year non-gold-backed, fiat, Petro-Dollar currency wealth confiscation scheme and, like all good cons, made the victims feel like they were actually doing the right thing while they were being gently led down the path of destruction.

    Either discuss these realities on a societal basis or scroll on by. Your amateur speculation of my personal life and of my thoughts are both inaccurate and blatantly obvious ad hom attacks while the Rockefellers make out like bandits.

    • Beryl of Oyl August 1, 2022 at 4:13 pm #

      I didn’t try to guess anyone’s thoughts. I’ll be the judge of what is and isn’t counter-productive for me to talk or think about, thank you. I don’t work for you, and in case you have not noticed, I don’t defer to men.

      I have my own thoughts about the societal hoodwinking that went on, and IMO “women’s lib” was the antidote.

        As for your thoughts that the Rockefeller-led Women’s Lib movement was the antidote rather than a cause of the mess that we are in now, can you imagine how awful things would be for us today had they not graced us with every woman in the workforce? So very thoughtful of them.

        As for women cooking and raising our children while men hunted the meat for them to cook in their primitive kitchens – Yes, I do know that that is how our species climbed to the top of the food chain on this planet. I thought that we all knew that.

      • Paula D August 1, 2022 at 7:48 pm #

        I actually agree with Rhett that “women’s liberation” that was so highly promoted in the 70s was a capitalist plot to keep women working so that they could get two workers for the price of 1.67.
        The labor market works on supply and demand, so the more workers competing for jobs, the cheaper the wages.
        I agree that children need their mothers when they are little, but that isn’t cost efficient for our owners.
        Same thing about opening the borders, which the same capitalists spin as helping the Dreamers, or some such bullshit. It’s about flooding the labor market with people eager to work for peanuts.
        But if Rhett is going to spin his pie fantasies in public he has to realize that some of us will speculate about his private life.

While it was beneficial to women in some ways, it is/was mostly detrimental to women’s actual interests and was promoted in the 70s and beyond to service the interests of the PTB at several levels: lower labor costs due to supply and demand, inreased tax revenues, disguising the rampant inflation of the 70s and 80s, undermining traditional family life, institutionalizing children almost from birth, discouraging child-bearing, depriving kids of parental guidance and affection, and on and on.

          The main people who were liberated by “women’s lib” were men, who were liberated from all social, moral, and financial responsibility.

          You can be sure that any “movement” promoted by media is not an authentic movement at all. An authentic, grass-roots women’s movement would have done much more to address the real interests of women, rather than largely undermining them.

          And the “pie fantasies” do suggest that Rhett is getting little or no pie…er…”pie.” Though I don’t see why he can’t make his own pie.

          • Paula D August 2, 2022 at 12:45 pm #

            Yes, Anthea, if you look at the “benefits” women supposedly got from the very hyped women’s “liberation” movement, they were mostly economic, as in, be a wage slave for life and credit is now open to you. Women can now open bank accounts, buy houses and get credit cards in their own names.
            Actually, the easy credit cards were also rolled out in the 70s. Who benefited? The banks and stores.
            Before that people unable to postpone gratification put items on layaway. After that, they went into debt servitude. That’s OK, work some overtime and pay it off.

            I now realize that if the media is 24/7 on something, then that something should be looked at with great suspicion.
            Same with Watergate. All networks carrying the hearings all day? Really? I now think that that was a Color Revolution. What Nixon did to piss off TPTB I don’t know, but I don’t think they were worried about “democracy” or “saving our system”.
            Same as now. I actually watched the video that Redneck Liberal thought was so persuasive. They are literally redefining political activity as “nsurgency”.
            This is a major power move.

            @ Paula D:

            One of the main results of the women’s “liberation” movement was that married women, especially with children, are now expected to work two jobs: one as a housewife/mother and one outside the home in the workforce. Employment outside the home also made children much more expensive, due to the cost of daycare. These two factors strongly discouraged both marriage and childbearing.

            Working motherhood has, IMHO, had a terribly deleterious effect on the lives of both women and children.

            Also, IMHO, what is really beneficial to the interests of women, children, and society in general are stable marriages and children raised by stay-at-home moms.

            Based on my observations from my 1950s childhood, stable marriages where hubby did his best to provide for the family, and where his presence in the home was not more deleterious than not, were not a general thing. Even back then we had two divorced women on our block, one where hubby abandoned the family and one where hubby was an alcoholic. We had two widows and one widower. In the case of one of the widows, hubby committed suicide by blowing his brains out behind the Red Dog Saloon, leaving her with four kids, two of them toddlers. In one family, the mother of four young children was forced to go to work, since hubby wouldn’t. In one family with five kids, hubby was known to beat up on the kids a lot, and in later years I heard him described by neighbors as “mean as a snake.” But, on balance, there were some solid families where hubby went to work every day, and all was as happy and peaceful as could be expected. Still, I’d say that about 50% of the households were very troubled–and two of the three households headed by women were among the most peaceful and stable. The widow was, in one case, very well-to-do and worked as a schoolteacher, and one of the divorced women was the town librarian and a devout Catholic. The other divorced woman (whose husband took off) suffered from leukemia for most of the years the kids were growing up, but she had wealthy relatives who helped her out a lot until her death. The whole situation was obviously tough on the kids, one of whom was mentally handicapped.

            Certainly one proponent of women’s llib among my age group was a woman whose parents had both died–Mom just about the time she graduated from high school–and left her with three younger siblings to support, as well as a daughter of her own, after her husband abandoned the family. So she raised the daughter and siblings alone. That woman had a stainless steel spine and is still one of the people I most admire in this world.

            So I’d say that about half the families on my block featured dads who were either alcoholics, abusers, or bums–or were absent. This was pretty fertile ground for the women’s “liberation” movement–and this was back in the 1950s-60s, when families were still fairly stable, and there was ample stable head-of-household employment for the men.

            I know it sounds like Tobacco Road, and it was a predominantly blue-collar, lower-middle-class town, but my subsequent experience was that the same shit goes on in more affluent areas; it’s just better hidden. (This is why you never get to know your neighbors in suburbia. They are careful about that.)

        • MaryQueen August 3, 2022 at 11:27 pm #

          And then also, the capitalist plot to put women (cheap labor) into the workforce actually helped women who didn’t decide to raise families, for whatever reason.

          But women who decide to try to steer their own destinies never seem to be the focus for some reason, although single men don’t have that same perception problem.

      “Woke” is today’s Puritanism, and its acolytes are the same smug and self righteous sorts who believe that their way is the Only Pure and True Way, so the entire society should adhere to their beliefs. Heretics must be shunned and purged, if not imprisoned and killed.
      No other views can be allowed, no other beliefs tolerated.
      Free speech must be banned, freedom of assembly redefined as “insurrection”, freedom of the press censored and stifled, bodily autonomy redefined to suit their tattooed, pierced and jabbed selves.
      It’s may not be easy to define, but I know it when I see it. The smugness emanates from every pore, even online.

    “Just having a lot of money means less than it used to.” The passage of the 16th Amendment in 1913 allowed Americans to start paying the interest on money borrowed by the newly created Federal Reserve.

    Based on income levels, money earned in 1913 was taxed at rates of 1% to 7% and was due in April 1914. These federal income tax rates have gone up substantially since 1914, in these times of multi-trillion dollar deficits.

    Suddenly an extremely rare virus is hitting newborns & infants in Memphis, called parechovirus, in areas where Sec. Mayorkas has been dumping illegals. You can add this to the cases of polio and meningitis turning up in children across the country. Apparently letting hundreds of thousands of illegals into the US from squalid Central American barrios and fetid jungles without health checks has consequences. Little ones are paying the price.

    Wear a mask, indeed.

    • Redneck Liberal August 1, 2022 at 8:21 pm #

      This is not an ‘extremely rare virus’, Marlin. It’s common enough and not actually an issue to anyone unless they’re under 3 months old. \

      Parechovirus is a virus that usually has very mild symptoms, or none at all. Sometimes it can cause serious illness in babies and young children.

      healthdirect.gov.au (I figured a link to the CDC wouldn’t carry any weight…)

      So, why do you constantly nag about the filthy Mexicans et al bringing squalid 3rd world diseases? This is how misinformation looks.

          How do you explain…the re emergence of polio?

          Well, I don’t have to explain it, but you don’t even bother doing any “research” – not even ‘your own’, apparently. You get a talking point from Tucker Carlson and just dive right in there! Good little Marlin!

          The current polio-like outbreak isn’t actually polio:

          ” A series on the enteroviruses that appear to cause a polio-like neurological disease, Acute Flaccid Myelitis. Hopefully we can use what we have learned from both the success and challenges of poliovirus vaccines to mount a formidable defense against emerging enteroviruses such as those causing Acute Flaccid Myelitis.

          Then, of course, we have effective vaccines for poliomyelitis (which is proving effective against this emergent attack), and the most noticeable outbreak is actually in Malaysia.

          I guess they can’t blame illegal immigrants, and they’re already third world, and have “squalid (cities & towns) and fetid jungles without health checks…” so it clearly serves them right, huh?

            When you’ve finished the research necessary to ‘debunk’ Dr Chetty’s 100% success rate in keeping his 7000 covid patients out of hospital – and in preventing them from even suffering from long covid – you could move on to checking out how, in swaths of Africa, vaccine-induced paralysis has taken over from wild polio-induced paralysis in children since the rollout of Gates polio vaccines.

            Still waiting for you to debunk Dr Chetty. Or you may do the opposite, which would involve acknowledging that covid is the most treatable respiratory disease there is. Which would, in turn, involve admitting that there was never any need for a ‘vaccine’. Never. Which would, in turn, involve admitting that there is another agenda at play than preventing covid infection and transmission – which everyone who’s not living under a rock knows the ‘vaccines’ do not do, and yet you still can’t travel to many places without certification that you’ve had said useless – and highly dangerous – intervention, and mandates continue to exist. All of which would involve admitting that conspirators, not conspiracy theorists, are an actual thing, and not a benevolent one.

    Per CBS News:

    NYC stores locking up Spam amid shoplifting surge

    Some New Yorkers are resorting to theft as inflation lifts the cost of everyday goods, including food.

    Drugstores in parts of New York City are on high alert amid a rise in shoplifting and are increasing security measures to stop theft. Cans of Spam, a cooked pork product that retails for $3.99 per 12-ounce tin, appeared to be encased in an antitheft container at a Duane Reade store in Manhattan, according to a customer who shared an image of the loss-prevention device on Twitter.

    Cans of Celebrity brand ham, which retails for $3.49, were also encased in plastic, according to a customer tweeted an image of the product.

    In June, the consumer price index rose 9.1% in from a year earlier, the highest inflation in more than 40 years.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has also led to a rise in retail crime, due in part to the increase in online shopping. Thieves have become more brazen in stealing from stores because they can sell items online, experts have said.

    Walgreens, which owns Duane Reade, did not immediately reply to CBS MoneyWatch’s request for comment.

    In May, New York Mayor Eric Adams and Attorney General Letitia James announced the arrest of 41 people who were allegedly part of a crime ring that stole thousands of items from drugstores, along with luxury clothing and goods.

    • SW August 1, 2022 at 6:17 pm #

      One of the reasons there are so-called food deserts in the poor sections of major cities is due to theft. This has been going on for years but it sounds like it’s escalating and finally caught the attention of media. And I’ve read that drugstores in San Francisco that have been looted are not going to reopen so people will have to go further to get prescriptions filled.

      Makes you wonder about eBay, doesn’t it? All those new clothes with the tags to prove it.

      • BackRowHeckler August 1, 2022 at 6:29 pm #

        I’ve mentioned a few times that during the riots in Hartford in 1968 ALL the food stores were looted and burned out. They never reopened. Dems like it that way because at election time they can rub our noses in the ‘Food Desert’ that Hartford has become. Of course, racism is to blame. But there have been numerous attempts to establish grocery stores in the city. They all fail, and its not only because of the shoplifting and vandalism. There is the bigger problem of assaults and robberies, and stolen cars, in the stores parking lots. I ask you, in all seriousness, how can anybody do business under those conditions?

      • malthuss August 2, 2022 at 12:01 am #

            They could go out with matching Hawaiian shirts, with the Tarantula perched on his shoulder.

            So far I am doing well on that front actually. I’m still not ready to allow a spider to crawl on me, but if I see one around the house I feel comfortable knowing it is culling other insects in the house that could become pests.

            Aww a forever home. That’s true. I mean, every creature needs a home. I recently have been watching these beautiful dragonflies, i think they are called blue dashers, who seem to have become fond of a big azalea bush in the back yard. They let me get real close and they don’t flutter away and they definitely have faces. I can even put my finger like right up to their big strange eyes lol but they don’t move. I call em my sweet little flutteries.

            I love insects and wouldn’t eat them.

            I really love spiders, and got a close-up amazing photo of a wolf spider mama with hundreds of babies being carried on her back. She was on my front porch.

            They are (to my knowledge) they only spider that carries their young that way.

            Mind-blowing.

            Not that arachnids are insects, technically I believe they are not. But I have had a love of ‘bugs’ since I was a kid.

            I’m also fascinated by bee, ant and termite colonies.

          VIETNAM WAR ERA – American GIs taking some R’n’R in Thailand. They’re sitting in an outdoor eatery, drinking beer and snacking away, when a cute girl with a tray of fried locusts comes by. She eyes them, smiles.

          GI 1: Hey, look what she’s got. Bet you won’t eat one.

          GI 2: You’re on. Come over here, honey. Let me try a handful of those little critters.

          LOCUST SELLER: Five Baht. You like?

          GI 2: Umm, they’re crunchy. Hey, I bet it’s not easy to round up all these little guys. How do you catch them?

            LOL! Sounds about right. I remember six inch cockroaches in Hawaii distinctly. And the fact that you had to empty your cupboards and wash all the plates and dishes weekly to kill all the buggers who would set up house between them. I’d keep six packs of the large cans of Raid or Black Flag on hand for dealing with them. Learned too late that powdered sugar and baking soda were the environmentally correct solution. Seems cockroaches can’t burp, so they eat the sugar and the baking soda makes them blow up. Who knew?

        Ah! An Aussie! I never could get Redneck and Liberal to compute as a combination, since we have no such types in th US–except maybe as fetishism or theater, as with gay men wearing assless chaps.

        Perhaps he is some Ennis Delmar or Jack Twist of the Outback–or is similarly attired.

    Cuba is having a cigar crisis due to shortages and unavailability of fertilizers.

    At least that’s what the Europeans tell the little guy. The little guy trying to buy a puro Cubano.

    Somewhere in the middle lies the truth: Cubans are being priced, world-wide, to reflect the Hong Kong market price. As it is an in-demand luxury good.

    As Cuba exported to Spain and Switzerland to fetch the best market price it now exports to the wealthiest area of China. And China sets the price.

    But it does not end with cigars. It begins here.
    A once rather common good has become a luxury.

    Ramon Allones to Tomahawk steaks. Expensive because of fertilizer, and available only for the über-wealthy, as a high end luxury should be.

    Fertilizer prices are being manipulated for “climate change”. You can still send your private jet to retrieve a few cases that can be delivered to your yacht content knowing that although you emit more carbon than a large city that you did your duty by paying for it.

    Today, Freedom has a price. A very high one.

    • BackRowHeckler August 2, 2022 at 7:18 am #

      Apparently the entire Cuban nation is in economic crisis at this point.

      Brownouts and Blackouts are becoming more and more frequent due to lack of fuel to run power plants. And altho there is no danger of famine, food shortages are real and a reduced diet is becoming a reality.

      Cuba joining the ranks of failed states in this 3rd decade of the 21st century, along with Lebanon, Ceylon, Venezuela, SAfrica & Ukraine.

      Normalizing US-Cuba relations would go a long way to improve the lives of Cuban citizens.

      Hey Edge,

      In the 1970s I was attempting to follow the Cuban cigar story, in part because of an involvement with the Filipino cigar industry (kind of a “failed state”, businesswise).

      What I heard / read was that Castro initially disdained tobacco cultivation, as the latifundistas who owned all the good land where they grew cigar tobacco were most likely Batista fanboys.

      Later he changed his tune, most likely on account of desperately needing foreign exchange. But much of the carefully-nurtured land had been ruined by chemical fertilizers, where they replanted corn or another grain after the revolution.

      The best seeds were reportedly spirited out of the country, though that was a high crime. They are doing quite nicely now in Central America.

      The point of all this is that a “Cuban” is not the same “Cuban” as back when. All the good people left along with the seeds as well.

      The vast majority of nouveau riche buying these smokes wouldn’t know a good cigar from a White Owl.

      • Edge Lordin’ August 3, 2022 at 8:50 pm #

        Firr shirr

        But there are still many exquisite puros cubanos.

        There are good “new world” cigars, but many are so called “boutique” brands that oftentimes amounts to nothing more than an entrepreneurial cigar fan buying leaves from the major producers and creating some mélange flavor bomb with a kewl/aggressive band and some contrived marketing mythology.

        You can certainly enjoy a sparkling Napa but it just ain’t champagne

    Some kind of gang war going on ‘in de hood’ in Hartford; 5 people gunned down in the last 2 nights. (which is alot in a city with a population of just over 100,000).

    Typically, none of the political ads running now address the problem, or any problems. Instead, it’s all about abortion, despite the fact Ct has probably the loosest abortion laws in the country — the State encourages abortion, and will pay for you to get one.

        • Anthea August 2, 2022 at 1:16 pm #

          Since there is not reason at all why she should go to Taiwan, I assume that it’s just some very scripted theater in which she and Xi (and others) have agreed to act out their roles. For some reason (unknown to me) it serves their interests. So, who knows how the script reads?

          So far, quite a few people have gotten quite a bit of publicity out of it.

          • SoftStarLight August 2, 2022 at 1:34 pm #

            Hmmm. It’s difficult to imagine Xi working with the likes of Nancy Pelosi. Allegedly Xi was super nasty to Biden on their last conference call. Of course I suppose that it could all be scripted out but I dunno. Commentators I have listened to seem to think China will have to react to this provocation to save face. And I could easily imagine Nancy Pelosi risking Armageddon for her own personal career goals and acolytes.

          • Bob Polecat August 2, 2022 at 4:58 pm #

            I think that you are right, Anthea. I think that Schwab, Macron, Trudeau, Arden, Putin, Biden, Xi et al are all “in on it.” They all have their role to play and they will all “live happily ever after” once they have reduced us to 500,000,000 compliant, marked, bug-eating serf-bots.

    Well, ladies and germs;

    Good News! Situational Awareness this AM reports;

    IRAN ALREADY NUCLEAR CAPABLE: Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization leader Mohammad Eslami warned that Iran already has the technical capability to build a nuclear device but states the country does not intend to do so. Eslami explained that Iran had decided to shut off international monitoring cameras in its enrichment facilities as it was “not acceptable”.

    Whew, that was close. The Iranian’s promise not to to “Nuke-Up” their military capability must be a huge relief for those in Israel and Saudi Arabia who consider these things….

    Got me to thinking, however.

    What did Allah mean when he put Nuclear capability in their hands? What could be His purpose?

    Seriously – where is the mRNA die off? Source. Data. All of you seem to have bought the BS Health Ranger posts where there is no evidence that any of it it true. Looking through the comments, it appears JHK and this ditto crowd has created cult of personality that prevents the majority here to allow any truthful info entering.

    But of course JHK is happy with your monthly Patreon transfers and keeps the BS flowing. Going to guess the majority of the crowd are at least Septuagenarian and haven’t connected with anyone much younger than them in quite some time. As for CRT and secondary schools – it just doesn’t exist. Trust me, my kids all went through Ann Arbor’s public school systems. If there was CRT you would see it there. Despite helping them with homework consistently over the last two decades, there was none. How would I recognize it? Well I do have a history degree from an Ivy League university obtained long before CRT existed in history departments where it is primarily used at the undergraduate but mostly upperclass and graduate levels.

    Seriously – saw one commenter say he buys books but never reads. What a load of crap. This is a dark corner of the internet entrapping you in the cobwebs of fear and disinformation. Read, think, live. Bye.

      The Global Elite thought of just about everything – except the Life Insurance industry. Deaths are up at a steady 20%. After the introduction of the Vax during the lockdown, the death rate was up 40% in working age people. Now that people are getting treatments again and aren’t at home and depressed, the death rate has fallen back to 20%.

      • Anthea August 2, 2022 at 6:37 pm #

        Also, a few months ago, Karl Denninger noted that something very strange had happened with the BLS statistics on the number of people in the workforce. BLS statistics indicated that about 100,000 people had disappeared from the workforce–simply gone poof!–in the space of a few months. Karl noted when presenting this data that there are only three ways that a person could disappear from this count: be incarcerated or placed in a nursing home or die. If I remember right, the third possibilty was to leave the country and renounce your US citizenship.

        Obviously, the number of people in the US workforce is fairly stable. Fairly predictable numbers of people enter the labor force at, I think, age 16, and a fairlly predictable number of people die or enter nursing homes (or prisons), or re-enter the labor force after being released from prison.

        Denninger noted that the disappearance of about 100,000 people from the labor force in a matter of a few months was absolutely unprecedented–which he knows for sure, as he has maintained a dataset on this for around twenty years. And there is only one possible conclusion as to what happened to them: they’re dead.

      • Paula D August 3, 2022 at 12:43 pm #

          Since introduction of the Vax. Covid deaths were simply the rebranded Flu, the flawed or deadly regimens they put people through, and of course due to the complete social breakdown of the lockdown.

          Altogether that upped the death rate among working age people forty percent. Now that things have returned to relative normal, the death rate among working age people is still up twenty percent. What could it be but the Vax?

          • Hereward the Woke August 4, 2022 at 7:02 pm #

            Just to put those 40% and 20% figures in perspective: a 10% in the normal death rate happens every 200 years or so.

      @ Golden Road:

      It’s been more than ten years since my youngest graduated from high school–so my last encounter with high schoo history nonsense predates CRT–but they were teaching some pretty fucked up history, even back then. My youngest was taught that the story of the first Thanksgiving was that the Pilgrims invited the Indians to the first Thanksgiving, feasted with them, and then killed them right there on the spot. High school history is notorious for being pretty heavy on the bullshit–and was, even in my day–but this was a new one on me.

      Many working people tell me that CRT is constantly shoved down their throats in the workplace, and there are fairly frequent dust-ups on the Facebook Community pages (I am a member of community pages for two school districts) about the teaching of the gender-fluid agenda at the elementary level. I haven’t seen much on the CRT issue vis-a-vis the schools, though there is some argument about this on the community pages.

      It was recently reported to me that there is a boy in the high school in the nearest town to me (a tiny town of about 2,000) who identifies as a girl and has been allowed to use the girls’ restrooms. This is in a town that barely acknowledged the existence of covid from the beginning, and completely disregarded shut-downs and mask mandates well into the fake pandemic. (The whole county mostly did the same.) So residents are displeased that the school is condoning a boy pretending that he’s a girl.

    But if Rhett is going to spin his pie fantasies in public he has to realize that some of us will speculate about his private life.
    If not me..who? If not now….when?

    Rhett:
    Comparing society in the present to society in the past is an academic exercise, It is neither a fantasy nor is it indicative of my personal life.

    1) It is my belief that our society and, therefore, our nation were better and stronger before the Rockefeller-led Women’s Lib (and its corresponding supply/demand ramifications in the labor market).

    2) Women baking delicious fruit pies is symbolic of those better times because it was reality back then.

    3) Women’s Lib has turned our society so upside down that now many women get immediately emotional, insulted, offended, defensive and resentful at the mere mention of baking a fruit pie while women in the past felt motherly loving pride at baking a delicious fruit pie for their men and for their children.

    4) I make love to a wonderful, beautiful woman regularly. I love her. She does not bake fruit pies. She works.

    5) My beliefs of society having gotten much worse over these past 50 years of non-gold-backed fiat Petro-Dollar wealth-looting by our “elite” is academic (i.e. considers neither my tummy nor my second head).

    Again, I find it more productive to discuss the topics at hand rather than wildly speculate, with no information whatsoever, on belittling ad hom attacks of the commentator.

      NO,

      I just want to make sure I’m drawing the right conclusion from your link. The first person who appears to be getting a shot actually isn’t because there is no needle on the hypodermic device.

      Not sure what I’m supposed to gather from the Bill Gates shot other than that Gates desperately needs a new hair dresser.

        The person getting the shot isn’t Bill Gates. Look at the ears.

        • Redneck Liberal August 3, 2022 at 9:42 pm #

          Do your mask straps NOT make your ears stick out?

          • GreenAlba August 4, 2022 at 6:57 am #

            Is that a serious question? Not that I wear a mask, but unless your ears are very bizarrely configured, wearing a mask does not make your ears stick out. No wonder you have trouble with serious stuff. Perhaps you are wearing a mask designed for a child?

          • GreenAlba August 4, 2022 at 7:03 am #

            Not to mention that the hair isn’t even the same colour.

        • Q. Shtik August 4, 2022 at 3:21 pm #

          Look at the ears. – GA

          ===========

          I considered that Alba but then concluded it was the face mask loops that were pulling the ears out like cup handles. The same thing happens when I wear a mask. Go back and take another look and let me know what you think.

          • Redneck Liberal August 4, 2022 at 9:10 pm #

            See, GA?

          • GreenAlba August 5, 2022 at 6:26 am #

            I could only get a mask to make my ears stick out if the mask (a) didn’t fit me or (b) because of (a) or because I’d had the thing on for a long time (this only happened to me once, on a train, with a totally useless cloth mask whose straps were too short) I had to move the straps from where they should be to the movable part of my ear, simply to provide some relief because the back crease of my ear – the bit that doesn’t move – was hurting from wearing a mask that was too right.

            So, no, I don’t see. Also because I don’t see Bill Gates as the kind of person who’d find himself wearing a mask that didn’t fit him properly and whose straps didn’t stay where they were meant to.

            When I put on reading glasses or sunglasses, my ears don’t stick out either.

            And that’s before we deal with the observation that the hair above the ears is steel grey in one photo and grey-white in the other.

            I can’t believe I’m even having this conversation.

      • Night Owl August 4, 2022 at 2:45 pm #

        The conclusion would be that when you see no needle, it further reinforces that what you are watching is fraudulent.

At least not in a good way.

    Go ahead China, start WWIII over the death of Nancy Pelosi. That would be one for the history books. Maybe they could hold her hostage and we could work out a real deal with the Chicoms and the Ruskies over her and Britney Griner as a package deal.

    Pelosi is certainly no Nancy Reagan, nor is she akin to Archduke Franz Ferdinand. Here’s hoping she lives it up and enjoys her stay in splendor as a visitor of distinction. May the rockets red glare light the path of the runway as her jet departs!

        At my nearest corner shop they used to ask ‘cash or card?’ as you filled up your bag, right up until covid. Now they get the card machine ready without asking you, so I have to say ‘I’ll give you cash’ every time. Sometimes I add ‘use it or lose it’ for emphasis, but they’re generally about 20 and it simply does not compute.

        CB81 a few years ago a kid from Amherst College showed up here, chimed in a bit; it seems he majored in ‘Environmental Science’ and couldn’t find a job. He claimed to have known Twiggly Puff (remember her?) It sounded like he was pretty beaten down with bullsh#t lefty college hate whitey propaganda — which led him to a dead end in life. The kid was beside himself. I took it upon myself to give the kid some advice “See here man, buck up, I know for a fact just south of you in Springfield, Mass, the RR was hiring, looking for young guys. Show up there, talk to the foreman, tell him you want to work. Those Rail Road jobs are good paying Union jobs.” We didn’t hear from him after that so I hope he took my advice.

    On July 30, under the prior thread, I posted the following comment:

    Peter barfed in a waste basket this morning. We’re lucky it wasn’t on the carpeted floor.

    But on a side note:

    My wife has a cousin Bob who is married to Phyllis. Phyllis has a brother (that would be Bob’s B-I-L). Whenever Bo and I would get together with Bob and Phyllis, our respective brothers/BILs would be our only topic of conversation.

    I thought no one could top the stories about Peter but this other dude (don’t know his name) made Peter look normal. He (Phyllis’s brother) is bi-polar. I won’t even attempt to pass along the tales of his bizarre antics. Not long ago, 2-3 months I think, Phyllis put him in a nursing home. Last night we got word that he died there at age 63. I don’t understand what makes a mental case person die at an early age. Maybe Neurodoc can shed some light.

    The name of the bi-polar person is Richard. My wife and I have been informed that a viewing and funeral are scheduled for this Thursday. We will attend. A copy of Richard’s obituary was provided along with very positive comments from life-long friends in both NJ and Calif. There were also a number of pictures from happier days boating, fishing, etc and one with his very beautiful former wife who also wrote a brief comment with a totally positive slant.

    The take away from all this is that when someone dies all is forgiven… at least temporarily. To read the obit and comments from friends you would never know there was the slightest thing odd or “off” about Richard. There was one brief remark from a buddy about ‘getting calls in the middle of the night’ but those calls were always welcome because they were from Richard. I gather that Richard was smart and had a certain Charisma which allowed him to make big bucks in some area of financial sales.

    There is a lesson in all this for me. If and when Peter precedes me in death (which appears likely even though I am six years his senior) I am going to have to bite my lip. Peter has or had a certain Charisma as well. He could be hilariously funny in a crude sort of way. My kids love their Uncle Pete dearly and so do a number of young people for whom Peter was selected as Godfather. And my long-suffering wife will cry uncontrollably when he passes. I am bracing myself for the moment.

      Good points all. I am sure that even at Biden’s soon-to-be funeral the press and public will heap praise upon him claiming that he was an unparalleled statesman, one of the top 10 presidents this country has ever known, a true patriot, and that he loved his country and fellow man above everything else.

      Nice sentiments, Q. When my mother’s side’s black sheep, her brother Dave, finally died, very few showed up and only his daughter spoke up for him. IMO he was only weird compared to their own weirdness, so I guess it took one to know one. He was very private in his old age but was always outgoing and gregarious when he was in public. He drove a bus in Omaha NE most of his adult life, so he definitely acquired a way with people. But he was fortunate to die at the relatively young age of 70, which is when I hope to go out as well. It’s definitely not going to be a world I want to live in any longer than that. The mice have issued a fatwa for me and evidently it will be via glue trap as payback my past transgressions. What a world!

    It all seems to be going the way of the Schnabenklausians. At least as far as destroying The West. The $64 Question is: ‘Where do Russia and China stand’?

    The opinion of one alt-right/alt-news, political wonk seems just as good as another. There are the pessimists (e.g. Brandon Smith) who never met a situation they couldn’t see as a win for the Cabal; and there are the optimists (e.g. Tom Luongo) who see the Cabal making loads of mistakes that will give Western Civ. an out. And lots of wonks in-between.

    Personally, I think the over-throw of this whole Dark Time may just depend upon a present day version of ‘two little hobbits making their arduous way to Mount Doom’.

    Why do Pelosi’s constituents even keep “electing” her? This is KKKalifornia, can’t they just do one of those recalls they always seem to hold?

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s planned controversial stop in Taiwan prompted protests in her hometown of San Francisco, where anti-war activists and leaders of the city’s Chinese community demonstrated against the Democratic congresswoman’s trip.

    On Monday, ahead of the visit, roughly 100 people gathered outside Pelosi’s office at the San Francisco Federal Building to urge her to cancel the stop on her Asia trip, which protesters said would unnecessarily inflame a “potential war” with China.

    Demonstrators—who were seen holding signs that read “U.S. hands off Taiwan,” “Stop the provocations,” and “No war on China”—urged Pelosi to cancel the trip to Taiwan, which had not been confirmed at the time of the protest. They asked her to, instead, “focus on the real challenges of inflation, climate crisis and economic distress facing the American People.”

    However, the pressure from American protesters did apparent little to change Pelosi’s mind. The House Speaker touched down in the capital of Taipei on Tuesday morning.

    Julie Tang, a retired San Fransisco Supreme Court judge, told the San Francisco Standard that, as a longtime supporter of the House Speaker, she was “disappointed” about Pelosi’s trip.

    “We have donated to her, we’ve supported her throughout these years, but we are so disappointed tha
