Big Lies and Bigger Lies

“Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.” — Joseph Goebbels

    “If you’re going to lie,” Joseph Goebbels used to say (in German of course), “make it a whopper.” How did that work out for the Third Reich?  Today, The New York Times says “Joe Biden” is revving up to run for president again in 2024. Is that so? One DNC strategist, Maria Cardona, was quoted saying, “Democrats complain that he might be too old. But then, when they’re asked, ‘Well, who?’ There is no one else.”

     There you have the sucking chest wound at the center of the Democratic Party, a malodorous vacuum where, as they like to say, democracy dies in darkness. You understand, this is exactly what you get when all you do is tell lies, always and everywhere, about everything.

     Now I will tell you the truth: “Joe Biden” will not be running for president ever again. “Joe Biden” will either be impeached for real high crimes and misdemeanors, or he will be bum-rushed out of the White House on some medical pretext before Independence Day. “Joe Biden’s” crimes have finally caught up with him. He sold out his country.

     The facts have been out in plain sight since before a coalition of rogues and frauds stuffed him into the Oval Office, January, 2021. As vice-president under Mr. Obama, “JB” was allowed to run a global grifting operation that netted his family tens of millions. (Mr. Obama received plenty of his own sanitized grift in the form of absurdly large book deals and TV contracts, enough swag to lead the deluxe life of a senior panjandrum. His job, post-presidency, was to feed the Woke hustle with an occasional speech and otherwise shut up.)

    The coalition of rogues and frauds, a.k.a. the permanent bureaucracy or the Deep State, had committed so many crimes since 2016 that its sole agenda turned to driving the one-man wrecking-crew called Donald Trump out of office and making sure he never got close to a lever of power again, by any means necessary. That is still all that animates this gang. They managed to roll enough of the American public in the process to maintain power and influence over them via control of the news, censorship, and use of their captive legal system to harass and punish their enemies. And now it’s all falling apart.

      How many Americans with the capacity to pay attention actually doubted the veracity of Hunter Biden’s laptop?  Very few, I’d guess, deep down, though millions pretended it was not for-real because the contents were so obviously incriminating. So, they had to lie to themselves. But then, what’s wrong with lying to yourself when all the authority figures in your society set the example of lying to you about everything, always, and everywhere? Do you see where this habit of lying gets you?

     The trouble with lying, of course, is that it requires a never-ending struggle of covering up prior lies, and then that task requires the invention of new lies, which, in-turn, induces more fabrication of lies in a self-reinforcing feedback loop subject to the implacable law of entropy (a wearing-down to zero), until you have flown up your own cloacal aperture — the place where souls go to die. And now, maybe, you see why the regime in power has made itself so deeply and heinously soulless, which is to say: evil.

     By the way, this is why the “Joe Biden” regime sent out a pack of drag queens to perform for the cameras the past two years. They needed a device so insulting to the sensibilities of people equipped with a normal moral compass that it would create a distraction from much greater insults such as stealing elections and concocting a lab-engineered pandemic to deploy deadly vaccines — these matters in themselves entailing giant matrices of lies.

     Even with the stolen 2022 midterm elections in Arizona, Nevada, and Pennsylvania, the Republican Party managed to squeak into a House majority, and now a non-captive faction of that party is methodically taking steps to reveal the giant scaffold of lies America has lived under for years. One rather significant event was the prank now unspooling about the fifty-one  “folks” (“JB” called them) from the Intel Community who branded Hunter’s laptop a Russian disinfo operation. Those “folks” included five living former CIA directors, wouldn’t you know? It was an obvious lie at the time, but now it’s a certified lie, since one of the five, Michael Morell, spilled the beans testifying under oath to the House Judiciary Committee that he rounded up the other fifty at the direction of “Joe Biden’s” campaign advisor, Tony Blinken, now Secretary of State.

     On another side of the Biden family mischief, there is the emergence of the IRS whistleblower (as yet unnamed), who complained through formal agency channels that the IRS and the DOJ were mishandling various cases emanating out of Hunter’s laptop. A “high government official” unmasked as Attorney General Garland is accused of lying to Congress. He apparently has been leaning on the US attorney in Delaware, David Weiss, to hold off prosecuting a case that Mr. Weiss’s office finished investigating a year ago.

    Doesn’t look good. Also looks like Mr. Weiss probably will be forced to lodge some actual charges against the First Son, and that these will be Mickey Mouse tax evasion raps to distract from and conceal the greater issue of the Biden family conspiracy to extract large payments from foreign governments. And then there is the matter of the handgun that Hunter acquired under false pretenses of lying about being a drug user, plus disposing of the gun in a dumpster. They’ll hope that these charges might be like some raw meat thrown to the animals. As RFK, Jr. quipped recently in a separate instance of Dem Party mischief: nice try.

     These various dodges to lessen the impact of Biden family criminal culpability are likely to fail. The Bidens are caught and “Joe Biden” is about to go down, one way or another. Looks to me like a lot of this adds up to impeachable offenses, which I doubt the party will allow “JB” to go through. Today’s announcement about running for president again in 2024 is just another ruse to hold-the-line, but it won’t work either. They’ve lost control of the narrative — and the action itself. Mr. Blinken and Mr. AG Garland also look like they’ll be squeezed out of power like a couple of watermelon seeds between your fingers.

     What happens when “Joe Biden” creeps off into the sunset? Use your imagination about the dark place that leaves our country, and the flavor of further shenanigans ahead.

PS: Breaking late morning Monday: ZH reports: Tucker Carlson, the highest rated cable news host in history, is out at Fox News. The network posted this: “FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways. We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor. Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday April 21st. Fox News Tonight will air live at 8 PM/ET starting this evening as an interim show helmed by rotating FOX News personalities until a new host is named.”

Do you wonder what kind of serious repercussions this move will provoke?
Expect Tucker to be back on another platform, soon.

    Greetings,

    I’ve been listening now for seven years on how the “walls are closing in” on DJT. How is this any different? The rule of law is dead in this country and the very people that would prosecute the crimes of the Biden family are the people that illegally put him in office.

    Nothing is going to save us from the consequences of our actions these past few years. A banquet of consequences has been set for us and we all have a seat at the table.

    Some that are prepared may suffer less than others but we all have a place in line. Hopefully, the barter items I’ve put away will allow for me to trade for a bit when all that is left to do is barter. Time will tell.

    • Beryl of Oyl April 24, 2023 at 9:40 am #

      Speaking of barter items, if you believe the rumors the wife of Zelensky spent an astounding amount of euros in an amazingly short period of time in a Paris luxury store.

      If you believe Seymour Hersh, Zelensky worked out a deal where he personally took a large cut of the money Biden handed him for fuel.

      Hmm. Converting currency that will fall in value into items that remain valuable to rich folk?

      • mrs_saj April 25, 2023 at 8:17 am #

        Beryl,

        The very definition of barter item.

    • Alfred April 24, 2023 at 9:41 am #

      Magical-ThinkingConspiracy-Theory

      It is entertaining though…

      • AZJJ April 24, 2023 at 3:03 pm #

        Try not to speak, douche-bag.

        • Alfred April 25, 2023 at 7:49 pm #

          Why would you say such a thing?

          I really, cannot wait to hear what you have to say.

          BTW, I tried to make two arrows with ME in between ‘Magical-Thinking’ and ‘Conspiracy-Theory’

          I was doing that to express my almost child-like hope that we will see some kind of friggin’ justice, and my utter cynicism.

          No you go. Why did you say what you said?

    • mrs_saj April 24, 2023 at 12:34 pm #

      Nickel,

      Agreed. I foresee no resuscitation of the rule of law. The laws of nature, physics, and thermodynamics (entropy), those are all still working, however. Biden may get pushed out, via a medical emergency, not because of the rule of law, but because his usefulness is declining.

      Would you mind sharing your ideas on barter items? I’m all ears. I just took delivery on a supply of 25 year shelf-life food, but I need to lay in some barter items and I’m looking for ideas.

      • Frank Buttitch April 24, 2023 at 1:34 pm #

        yum, yum delicious!

      • Yirgach April 24, 2023 at 3:29 pm #

        There was a blog by someone who lived thru the siege of Sarajevo.
        For barter, he recommended whiskey and butane lighters…

        • wokethis April 24, 2023 at 6:25 pm #

          Try those little airline bottles of liquor, tobacco, generators…

      • bill7424 April 24, 2023 at 6:35 pm #

        In the future we will probably need to hunt small game to supplement our food supply. .22 cal ammo is ideal for that. It doesn’t cost much at the moment and is in stock in the gun stores. It can also be used as a barter item.

      • Ron Anselmo April 25, 2023 at 5:10 pm #

        Mrs. – Q-Tips, BIC Lighters and any anti-anxiety meds you can lay in. Xanax & Valium will be priceless – not in dollar terms, but in “value”.

        Not sure people understand that. The barter market – like all markets will price items. Not in terms of cash (which will be worthless) – but in terms of “barter value”.

        • hmuller April 25, 2023 at 7:18 pm #

          My barter choice item – jars of instant, freeze dried coffee.

          Coffee is not grown in the USA (except in Hawaii)
          With world trade supply line breakdowns and a devalued dollar useless to pay for imports, coffee addicts will be frantic. Sealed jars of freeze dried instant coffee will last longer than King Tut properly stored.

          Worst case – if no shit hits the fan, you and all your relatives and friends can have a lifetime supply of instant coffee.

          • Ron Anselmo April 25, 2023 at 10:03 pm #

            H – good idea, never thought of that, but your reasoning is definitely sound. Even if you lack a heat source – not preferable – you still get your caffeine fix. Thanks.

          • hmuller April 26, 2023 at 10:38 am #

            True, the hard core can just put a pinch between their lip and their gum.

            But I suspect anyone who can’t even build a camp fire to heat water is not going to make it very far.

            Single women will switch their focus away from finding a good looking man with education, a prestigious job, and a woke philosophy. Instead, they’ll ask themselves, “Can this guy protect me and feed me?”. Drag queen storytellers need not apply.

          • Ron Anselmo April 26, 2023 at 1:40 pm #

            H – taking a view from 30.000 feet, I think there will be more groups of people who are “nomadic” for lack of a better term – more than people realize.

            Seems the conventional wisdom says people will stay in a selected place – maybe so, but I think there will be more fluid groups for various reasons, than people realize.

            If my view shapes up, and I’m on the move – just give me some cold water for my instant coffee, or as you say, maybe just a pinch between cheek & gum.

            The more I think about it, the more I like your suggestion. Thanks again.

        • Anthea April 27, 2023 at 11:47 am #

          One of my former neighbors has tried growing opium poppies. I don’t know if he had much success. I have tried growing them and I’ve been disappointed. The idea behind this, of course, is that there are many, many people who need pain medication. If they can’t get it, they will be desperate.

          While some people who are on prescription pain meds might possibly be able to stockpile some, it is illegal to sell your pain meds to others. One of my other neighbors was busted for this a couple of years ago.

          It is possible to become a licensed grower of marijuana, at least in some states. For some people, marijuana seems to work, at least somewhat, as a pain medication. I think the way it works is that, if you are a licensed grower, you are licensed to grow it for personal use (because you have a prescription), but not for sale. You can sell it only if you have contracts with private individuals who have prescriptions.

          I know one licensed grower. Marijuana is grown indoors under grow-lights, in such cases. While I am not particularly interested in marijuana use, as it makes me sick, I am very interested in horticulture, and I can see how it would be an interesting project. I can also see how, in a SHTF scenario, growing the stuff in quantity might be a bit risky. But, realistically, it will be risky to have much of anything around of value.

          • The Man They Call Zazelle April 27, 2023 at 12:08 pm #

            It’s infuriating how our freedoms, independence, sense of community, and capacity for survival, such as in SHTF contexts, can be hamstrung all the way down, rather than encouraged, by government.

            Once new in a small town, I let the surrounding flora grow fallow to see what grew, given my interest in wild edibles/medicinals, and not long after, we got a letter from the town ordering us to mow our lawn or pay a fine.

          • badberries April 27, 2023 at 12:41 pm #

            Anthea. Growing Poppies is easy, broadcast the seeds in a sunny space, don’t bury the seeds as they need direct sunlight to germinate.
            I buy mine from “onestoppoppyshop” the genus is Papaver Somniferum. not illegal to cultivate, illegal to harvest for anything but the seeds which I use in all of my breads.
            The trick is, leave ’em alone, they don’t like being disturbed. I’ve had ’em growing out of nothing but rocks, no soil needed. If you look at photos from Afghanistan, it’s the crappiest, hard pan soils and they’re just fine.
            Cast the seeds and forget ’em.

      • ThorsHammer April 25, 2023 at 9:37 pm #

        .222 NATO rounds for AR 15’s.. Wouldn’t want the security forces guarding the rich people’s estates in Aspen, Jackson Hole, and the Hamptons to run out of ammunition would we?

        Since the estates have plenty of land, perhaps you could barter for a garden plot and trade carrots to the Security for protection. Sounds like a complete ecosystem.

      • mrs_saj April 26, 2023 at 7:55 pm #

        Thank you all for your ideas! There’s a little overlap with what I was thinking, but they are all great ideas.

        The mosquito repellent suggestion reminded me of the Will Smith post apocalyptic movie, The Book of Eli, where his character is desperate for Chapstick.

    • Wizard of the Saddle April 24, 2023 at 2:33 pm #

      Quite right, NT. The Freedom Caucus – God Bless them all – are performing essential work to shine the light of truth on all that has transpired over the past few years, but they only have the power to hold public hearings where the culprits may be grilled while under oath. That’s pretty much it.

      What is missing is an effective mechanism for holding these criminals and traitors accountable.

      My prediction: Most of the voters remain tuned out. The needle will not move.

      People have had their brains fried by an unending torrent of lies, perversions, frauds, and outrages – all without consequence for the perps. Observing this, the public has rightly concluded that representative government is at an end as a practical matter. Thus the meme: You can’t vote your way out of Clown World.

      It is simply to painful to the psyche of American patriots to continue to invest faith in a faithless system, and so they largely tune-out and turn their attentions to defending the integrity of their daily lives and making preparations for the dark and evil age into which the country is descending.

      As for our esteemed host’s predictions that Blinken and Garland will be forced from office I must ask, “By whose Army?” These people have no shame or integrity…only gall and chutzpah. The pattern of behavior of the Wizards of Wokedom is clear: Lie, cheat, steal, bully, murder, double-down, and never, never, NEVER admit error – say you are sorry – and resign.

      So, there will be no resignations and the GOP lacks the will and the political muscle to actually remove a single one of these crooks via the mechanism of impeachment.

      Only a genuine insurrectionary army of armed patriots could effectively eject these creeps – which is why Democrats focus all of their time and attention on trying to find creative new ways to disarm the citizenry. Only when our guns are gone will they ever truly sleep soundly in their beds at night. Thus has it always been with tyrants.

      • AZJJ April 24, 2023 at 3:01 pm #

        What good will the House investigations and revelations do when we have a totally corrupt DOJ that will prosecute NOTHING?
        I guess they will at least wake up some Americans…

        • bill7424 April 24, 2023 at 6:49 pm #

          The House investigations is nothing but a going through motions Bread & Circuses to show everyone how corrupt the government is, something we have already known for quite some time now. If you’re waiting for arrest and indictements of these scumbags don’t hold your breath. The higher you go in government and the more money you have the more you become immune to being held accountable for your actions. Actions have consequences? Yes, but only for us little people.

            Yea, “Panjandrum” . I had to look up the def. and found a video which fits our predicament perfectly. A giant doddering machine ,out of control. and an utter failure. Those crazy Brits. Not the def. JHK intended I believe.

            youtube.com/watch?v=rdST4BcWr-k

            Oxford languages: pan·jan·drum: noun. A person who has or claims to have a great deal of authority or influence.

          As a child, I had a copy of Caldecott’s “The Great Panjandrum” – which I believe you can find on Project Gutenberg. I also dimly remember the word occurring in the lyrics of a Victorian music hall song on an old album by the wonderful Joan Morris and William Bolcom (highly recommended) but I can’t recall the song off the top of my head.

    Very nice. You’re at your best bringing the heat (aka truth) to the traditional left.

    It’s all coming down – further than many can even imagine – as any new administration will only be playing defense.

    The imperial ship has sailed, and the RoW is going to be calling the shots. All we can hope for is re-admission to civilized countries, which will enail a complete regime change.

    Maybe we can call it the 2nd republic.

          And then Suddenly!

          Let’s visualize one of many credible scenarios:

          Over 50% of the world’s population hates us— growing by the minute as the Empire of Fear loses its cover.

          Among that group are Great Powers who have so many nukes that they no longer count them, down to little thief-domes that bartered a herd of sheep in the Afghan market for the prestige of owning their very own nuke.

          The Great Powers have Mach 15 hypersonic missiles that can reach anywhere in the US of A before they are even detected. The little tribes have credit cards to rent UHaul trucks that are just as effective. and some are rich beyond the wealth of nations from their drug empires. Hobby weather balloons from Wall Mart (made in China) reportedly sell for $12 each and have an operating ceiling of 120,000 ft

          The Senile Old Men who rule the Free World are determined to scrub their toe on every new Do Not Cross Red Line that their declared enemies can draw in the sand.

          Six air burst nuclear warheads strategically detonated at 100,000 ft over North America would have the following result:
          1- Almost all private cars and long haul trucks would permanently grind to a halt. Computers!
          2- No freight would move to re stock the supermarkets.
          3- No gasoline or diesel would flow from the pumps.
          4- Water ceases to flow from the pipes, sewage blocks up, heat and AC stops.
          5- No internet to tell you what to do. Not even police with bullhorns because their cop cars are fried.
          6- Raiding parties roam the streets, not just foolish people trying to boost a bigger TV, but armed mothers who will do anything to feed their children.

          Within 30 days half the population of the US of A will be dead.

            ThorsHammer,

            Yes, the old saw about how one goes bankrupt. You are not wrong to apply it the growing animosity of the world for US behavior. Perhaps it even applies to the growing possibility of a nuclear confrontation or attack.

            I don’t dwell on the odds. I just keep working my preparations.

        I think the “tags” of democrat or republican no longer apply to what passes as government these days. The reality of “Joe Biden” is an awful truth of how far the Republic has crumbled, and how much closer we are to ushering in totalitarianism. In the late 1920s and early 1930s the Nazis came to power in Germany, as the lessor of two evils – fascism vs. communism.

        History may not repeat but it often rhymes. The 2024 “election” may be derailed by an emergency decree or martial law, which never turns out better for the little guy.

        The trend is undeniable CP.

        I’m almost 61 now. What has improved in this country insofar as our societal culture and our governance are concerned? (Forget about all the gee-whiz gadgets and other consumerist distractions.)

        Nothing.

        It’s been continuous rot since 1963.

        Occasionally the Great Project has hit speed bumps (Reagan, then Trump), but the Great Engine of Destruction quickly regathered steam each time, and plowed forward again with renewed vengeance.

        The American Republic is not just doomed – it is already over.

        Time for patriotic and rational folks to give the Old Republic a decent burial and then move on with secession and establishing new forms of constitutional representative governance with better safeguards for protecting essential liberty.

        • Islander April 24, 2023 at 5:26 pm #

          Wizard:

          Sadly, I have to agree.

          Remember what the 1960 election stood for?
          What Kennedy’s win meant to the country, and the world?

          A new beginning.
          A new generation.
          A turning from the tired old 1950s with its embarrassing and damaging McCarthyist extremism, its consumerist comfort zone epitomized by the golfer Eisenhower, marking time in the Oval Office with the silly-looking Mamie by his side (when she wasn’t sloshed).

          All of that was to be swept away by a fresh new breeze in Washington. An intelligent young fellow with a beautiful young wife and two lovely children would be moving into the White House, would be representing a USA ready and able to take a genuine leading role in resolving the left-over hatred and tensions of WW2, in helping to bring the colonial era to an end.

          The country was optimistic. It felt great!
          A paradigm shift. Real change. The new decade. Out with 50 and in with 60!
          A New Frontier.

          It was not to be.
          THEY would not let it happen.

          Since November 22, 1963, the USA has not had a single day of genuine optimism.
          We have betrayed any claim to moral or ethical leadership we might have had.
          It has been a disgusting performance. .

            Islander : Some of things you have posted here I’ve read about in The Age Of Entitlement Christopher Caldwell, A damn good read for anyone intrested in what went on in the 60s. I grew up in the 60s and have learned a lot of things I didn’t know that were happening right under my nose at the time by reading this book. For me it has become a down to earth common sense experience that has cleared up a lot of misunderstanding of what really happened back then.

          • Uncle Bob April 24, 2023 at 11:05 pm #

            My late father-in-law, a Navy man and Vietnam vet, believed JFK’s assassination gave cover to bad actors to stuff a bunch of bad laws down Americans’ throats, hastening our decline. The Reagan near-assassination very nearly accomplished the same goal. Johnson, Carter, Clinton and Soetoro were set up to take America out, and all somehow failed. The current fuckwit looks poised to finish us off: besides what’s already common knowledge, he’s also used up the strategic oil reserve, and has sent so many munitions to Ukraine that the US military has maybe –MAYBE — a week’s worth of ammunition, with no way to replenish supplies faster than what’s being used up overseas. But who gives a shit? It’s all hopeless, and if Biden doesn’t kill us, a rainstorm or an abortionist will.

        Within three years, what was a clinically diagnosable illness is now literally running the face of the US government. I got ready…3 years ago. The only thing that ever happens with crying wolf, is more folks show up to help you cry. Excuse my language but I don’t fucking care anymore what the crime is, was or is going to be. Without a nuke on the conti US, No food or utilities, or net drop.. the only hope people who care about accountability have is worthless. So in order for evil to prevail, it just has to stop that from happening while making you think it’s going to. New words like “scarcity” instead of “famine”..we’ve gone from treason to “misdemeanors”.. kick the can. They will give you another when this wears out. The elephant in the room is actually Christ…the judeo Christian model is what everyone is pushing against as a backboard but now we are out of “words”. Without God’s intervention, His Words are also being called to account. How much suffering is enough. The resetting of “prophecy” over and over it’s just laughable now. So is this a world subject to Christ? You can’t site anymore scripture. Ezk 38 has been regurgitated for use endlessly and yet the middle east is in the same stasis it’s always been. My guess, Tucker goes away like the last o Keefe messiah..into nowhere but tinfoil clown with the rest of us ..then in 2024, every single right sided conservative talking head will evaluate the situation like it’s a reality. THEY won’t even remember while they hurl hypocrisy grenades at leftists who don’t give a shit. Where are the balls in powerful people. Why do I have to do everything for you? Ffs…you go start the gawt damn revolution and quit complaining …you’ll get paid for it, we wont

            There’s the big question: Is America the new Israel (or at least the tribe of Manasseh, as old Herbert W. Armstrong preached)? Or are we MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT? There are arguments on both sides, but it certainly *seems* America is more Babylon than Israel, given how we’ve corrupted every nation on Earth with our feckless pursuit of stuff, sex, drugs, godawful music, get rich quick schemes, destruction of people and resources in our quest for riches, selling war as an export industry, etc. Either way, we’re not the nation we used to be, which is why things are such a fucking mess. As for “why doesn’t God help us?”, why the fuck should He? We shit on everything He stands for, including pious people who yammer through sermons whining about why parishioners don’t give more money in offerings instead of feeding their flocks the truth. We call injustice and lies justice and truth, we elect scoundrels because we can’t tolerate being told truths by actual leaders, we allow our children to be perverted by lunatics, and we scream about how unholy and terrible it is that women face restrictions on killing their children as sacrifices to Moloch — and that’s for starters. Regardless whether America is a new Istael or renewed Babylon, we have a very short time to turn back to God before we’ll be annihilated.

            ===========

            Unc Bob, you used the word Babylon a few times in your comment. What does “Babylon” connote to you? Is it corruption?

            I recently finished watching a multiple episode show on Netflix titled “Babylon Berlin” wherein the action takes place in and about 1929 in Germany. I couldn’t account for the use of Babylon in the title although it seemed to be a time and place in which anything goes… sex, corruption, etc. (smoking by both sexes at all times and everywhere. The rate of lung cancer must have been horrific.)

      They especially like humiliating decent Americans by continuously committing unspeakable outrages with utter immunity from any consequences.

      It serves two purposes:

      1) Orgasmic: They derive pleasure from the exercise.

      2) Practical: It demoralizes all decent and moral people. Sapping their will to organize and resist.

        In the US of A there are more guns in the hands of the people than in almost any nation in history. But the sheep outnumber them by ten to one. Among gun lovers there are a few who understand who the enemy is, but apparently none who are willing to use them.

        Our hope is that the molested geese of the world arise and turn their beaks upon the crotches of the deranged tyranny bitches fornicating with them in front of our children. And then turn the fury of the flock upon the the political whores who brought such a disgrace upon us.

    Hope you’re right about at least some of this, Jim, but I’m skeptical. The Biden family is protected by the same omerta that protects all of the DC criminal families, which basically amounts to we’ve all got secrets on one another (and guns and the willingness to use them), so it behooves everyone involved to keep their traps shut. In the end, that calculation is usually stronger than any foolish notions of “rule of law,” which these criminals have always viewed as a naïve fantasy meant only to be peddled to the masses.

      The TV series “House of Cards” was essentially all about entertaining the masses by letting all the rubes in on the big secret about how things really work in a republic that has been reduced to a corrupt imperial venture for the enrichment of the political elites.

      I used to think it strange that Hollyweird let that cat out if the bag, but now I think it was all part of the greater psy-op to blackpill the electorate by reducing us all to a grim acceptance that this is simply “how things work now.”

      A few of us just keep prepping for the day when these asshats can be deposed from power, but the power elites are banking on the idea that in the age of mass digital surveillance, any serious effort at revolution will always be detected and nipped-in-the-bud by the all-powerful, all-knowing, all-seeing, Deep State MIC/IC apparatus.

      The real entertainment for CFN’ers over the next couple of decades will be in watching to see who actually prevails in that struggle.

    This really is a golden opportunity for the Democrats to usher in a marginally electable radical as VP, who is then promoted to P, and who would have incumbent tailwinds in 2024. Maybe the choice is Harris after all? If that is the plan, then I can’t wait to see her debate RFKjr in the primaries.

    • Bilejones April 24, 2023 at 12:21 pm #

      is it usual for the party of a sitting president to have a primary if he’s running for re-election?

      I think the plan may be no primary, Biden assumed then his resignation late in the process and a co-opted pre-chosen candidate adopted. That would seem to avoid a lot of unpleasantness

      • Dr. Coyote April 24, 2023 at 1:03 pm #

        >>>is it usual for the party of a sitting president to have a primary if he’s running for re-election?<<<

        Yes Bilejones, I believe that it is. However, a sitting president is under no obligation to go through a debate series with candidates widely considered to be non-viable "nuisance" candidates. There'd be political hell to pay though if a president tried to brush aside serious contender this way.

        To your second part, I've seen these last-minute swaparoo candidates snick into office several times. Usually the electorate doesn't take it well and there's quickly some kind of recall election or removal proceedings.

        But nothing would surprise me next year, and something akin to what you're suggesting here could well happen. I guess we'll all stay tuned, right?

    “Even with the stolen 2022 midterm elections in Arizona, Nevada, and Pennsylvania, the Republican Party managed to squeak into a House majority, and now a non-captive faction of that party is methodically taking steps to reveal the giant scaffold of lies America has lived under for years.”

    People love their lies. Notice how the medical profession won’t let go of the mask lie?

    It said on the box they don’t work for a virus.

    Every single part of the pandemic response was the wrong thing to do, and we had plenty of evidence that it was wrong but ZERO evidence that any of it would work, but President Trump STILL believes in it.

    So do most of our ‘leaders’. They fell in love with the lie.

    This brings me to RFK Jr.

    He correctly points out the wrong that President Trump did with the lockdowns and the vaxx.

    After doing more research I find that Bobby Jr. is just as bad with climate change as Trump is with the vaxx.

    There is no evidence for climate change. There is plenty against it.

    Look at the people who pushed it- Al Gore, Bill Gates, John Kerry. Why would anyone believe anything that those weirdos tell them to?

    Especially when those weirdos don’t behave as if they believe any of it themselves?

    The dictates enacted under cover of climate change will harm as many or more people as the scamdemic, it will just happen over a longer period of time and human misery.

    Both Trump and Kennedy talk about freedom and the Constitution, but when it comes down to it, both favor top down government intervention in every aspect of our lives, when those in power feel it is necessary.

    I want both of them to go away and never come back.

      Carbon dioxide. An element that is abundant, that we organic souls expel into the air. Plants, those green growing thingies absorb the carbon dioxide and through a process known as photosynthesis create sugars for themselves so they too can grow and reproduce. The by product of this photosynthesis is oxygen. Carbon Dioxide enables a plant to then produce more fruit which contains seeds which enables a plant to reproduce itself and increase its numbers. More fruiting plants means more food for we organic souls who need to eat so we can have energy. Yet, in their lies, carbon dioxide has turned into a monster that is going to wipe all of us out and destroy this massive billions of years old marble.

      Kennedy supports this nonsense. I cannot support him. He has a great legacy and he’s one hell of an orator but if a person continues to believe that carbon dioxide is a toxic gas that will wipe out humanity, I cannot in good conscience ever support.

      The climate change religion is anti life. Period. These people are evil.

          It appears our only choices may be between vaxx madness or climate change madness. That’s not a pleasant prospect. That being said, if those are indeed the only choices, I’d have to favor climate change madness. At least they haven’t (yet) proposed to inject me with a toxic substance, and they can’t seize my cows because I haven’t any.

          Somehow, though, I suspect these matters will be beside the point soon. I can’t justify that but my intuition is usually pretty good, especially when it’s speaking loudly and constantly as it is now. Something big is in the wind that will change everything, and I’m not at all sure we’ll even have another election.

      Both are effective tools in an environment like right now. Trump used them to become prez in 2016.

      Both are terms that establishments hate. They do not like any dissenting voices and will attack incessantly any folks utilizing these attributes.

      That is what exists now, an establishment known as the Deep State or Uniparty. One dominant group and another opposition side quaking in their boots with fear of being obliterated with the term “racist”. So the group in DC really has no division thus the can do whatever they want.

      JHK seems to think that concerted effort by same said opposition will eventually wear down the Deep State. He is counting on an intelligent populace eventually repudiating the obvious misdeeds of the Mob. Chalk me up as skeptical.

This usually results in the presence of continental and polar ice sheets and alpine glaciers. We are currently living in the Quaternary Ice Age, this is only the fifth significant and severe ice age in Earth’s known history, and, so far it has lasted about 2.6 million years (technically 30+ million years ago when permanent ice appeared on Antarctica). It is the most severe ice age in the Phanerozoic, the geological name for the past 550 million years. Ice Ages are rare, but humans evolved during one, so it seems normal to us.”

      Yes, I was thinking the same thing. Perhaps he would be open to real discussion on climate change. If that were the case I would consider supporting his candidacy. Many in the MFM also do not buy into the climate change narrative or any manufactured scientific “consensus” for that matter since the very idea of consensus in science is absurd. Consensus might also be defined as adherence to dogma.

        “If I have seen farther than other men it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants.”

        Isaac Newton

        So he didn’t see farther than other men? There were no giants? And he’s not one of them, proving support for those who came later?

        No consensus simply means there is no commonly held knowledge or no knowledge at all – both of which are absurd.

        The problem is premature consensus or consensus that is ready to be changed, but the establishment refuses to let go.

          Sat with my brother 11 hours as his breathing slowed. After his death a 200 mile trip home. 60 miles south of St Louis late in the afternoon the sky took on an unearthly sunset and I left the highway for a high spot. What I witnessed was a painting in the sky bathed in luminous scarlet and gold. Not clouds but mountains and islands and ocean as vivid as a Rembrandt. I am sure he was showing me where he had gone and it was beautiful beyond words. In my 76 years never before or since anything like it. We are quantum, every speck and some of it obeys laws we have no knowledge of I am sure.

          • Jarek April 25, 2023 at 12:25 pm #

            It may well be so. Or perhaps you were prepared to see it. If someone was with you, would they have seen the same thing or had the same experience?

            I was in awe of a sunset and I mentioned it to a co-worker. He squinted his eyes to try and see what I was seeing, but nothing. He didn’t have the same inner instrument.

          Condolences Beryl,

          Something odd is afoot, 1 1/2 years ago the neighbor to the South (mid 60’s) died, supposedly no connection to the vax. Last week the neighbor to the North died, young guy (mid 30’s) vaxxed with two little kids.

    • C.O.Jones April 24, 2023 at 11:10 am #

      I have not yet done the research that Beryl has.

      I believe in cleaning up the environment, enforcing laws against pollution and polluters and generally picking up after ourselves but I have not yet dug deep enough to see RFK Jr. chanting the global warming mantra. Truthfully, I had hoped to never find that but due diligence requires I go looking.

      I am amazed at the number of people who can’t recall 5th grade science classes that taught about photosynthesis. Anybody with a 5th grade education should know that eliminating CO2 would eliminate life on earth. I watched the Ted Talk a few years ago where the smirking Bill Gates demanded we do just that and remember thinking “who is dumb enough to fall for this?”

      Thanks, Beryl and Cankerpuss – I have to take my rose colored glasses off and take a hard look at RFK Jr. If he’s a climate change cultist, I will campaign against him actively.

      • Robert White April 24, 2023 at 1:09 pm #

      There are many, many large areas of the earth that are almost unpopulated: the Sahara Desert (and other deserts), Antartica, the entire area within the Artic Circle, Siberia, and most of the high mountains. All of them are far more hospitable to human habitation than Mars. For one thing, the have the advantage of having an atmosphere (though thin in some mountainous regions).

      It would be a lot easier to figure out how to make these regions productive and habitable than it would be to go to Mars.

    With all their other sources of illegal schwag, one wonders why the Bidens thought it necessary to run Hunter’s art studio grift? Sue the money is good — $500,000 per masterpiece — and high end art has always been a way the elite launder money, but you have to ask, when is enough enough?

    • Beryl of Oyl April 24, 2023 at 10:47 am #

      Maybe just to give Hunter an ‘honest’ grift, to bolster his reputation as a recovering crackhead?

    The reason it’s all coming down is because the underlying dynamics are now in alignment.

    As many have noted over the decades, a non-productive, financialized economy living off of credit cannot maintain hegemony. It simply goes against the laws of physics, as is being demonstrated today for any who wish to look.

    The globally coordinated WEF model was dependent on a collapsed Russia and neutured China, using the $US dollar as the credit leverage vehicle and international means of exchange.

    The future will look more like what JHK described in his books; that is, a more naturally derived market driven by supply and demand. This will in turn usher in a return to traditional values, in that only those who work will be able to enjoy the fruits of their productivity.

    There will no longer be social security, welfare, the MIC, centralized state security, policing and perhaps border controls. The future will look very similar to the former USSR in the 90s.

    The difference of course being that Russia had/has the world’s last great stores of natural resources. So even though their economy bascially collapsed, they still had strong social values, cultural touchpoints (eg living memory of WW2 glory days), and a viable, productive future.

    What does the collective West have? The irony is, maybe it would have been better to have collapsed earlier like Russia. Now, all the foundation elements are thoroughly degraded or entirely absent.

    We have none of the remaining strengths, none of (whatever) cultural unity we may have possessed, and certainly none of the energy resources required to recreate a traditional social economic order.

    In short, we are hosed every which possible. I really wouldn’t be surprised to see massive immigration start heading to the winning side. Crimea/Odessa appear to look a bit like California.

    • JohnAZ April 24, 2023 at 10:58 am #

      Russia has been a source of immigration for awhile, think Muslims in the Stan SSRs. China built a wall a long time ago to keep out invaders. They are still pretty homogeneous.

      • DaveO907 April 24, 2023 at 2:43 pm #

        A good number of immigrants are coming from Europe and the U.S. as well, and if I recall correctly, Australia too, though not as many as from Europe.
        Dutch farmers for one instance. U.S. too.
        A guy I follow in Russia has started an American (U.S.) village-compound for English speakers. Several longtime FB friends had moved there over a decade ago.
        It’s a tradition that had German immigrants forming their own communities while being welcomed by several 19th century Czars.

    • Heartlander April 24, 2023 at 6:18 pm #

      Yes! Tim Kirby recently announced final government approval of his American Village project — 80 acres, an hour or so south of Moscow that will be a home for English-speaking, traditional-values immigrants. Building is slated to begin in summer 2024. Tim has been working closely with a deputy in the State Duma who is on a committee trying to reform the complicated Russian immigration process.

      I follow all this on the Tim Kirby Russia Hardcore channel on Telegram. I’m not planning to move to Russia myself, but I am vicariously enjoying the adventures of these modern-day pilgrims who are fleeing the Woke oppression and insanity of these former United States to the saner and safer lands of Christian Russia.

      Fr. Joseph Gleason, a convert to Eastern Orthodoxy who is now an Orthodox priest, is another former American living in Russia, who is forming a community of expat Orthodox believers.

      There is also now an effort to import farmers, I forget the particular area.

      Russia has the landmass to potentially support 500 million people, but their current population is only 146 million. Hence all the Russian federal financial and other incentives to couples to marry early and have lots of babies. Hence also, the new efforts to increase immigration — but only to people who support traditional Russian and Christian (or at least, not anti-Christian) values.

      Russia is a very pro-family country now, and it is welcoming “refugees” fleeing the anti-child, perverted, Satanic values of the West.

      My, how the tables have turned.

      • Jarek April 25, 2023 at 12:35 pm #

    JHK, I don’t hold much hope for anything significant to happen (jail time, etc). Just look, it was only a few weeks ago when Fauci retired. You seldom hear anything about him now. If Biden retires in a few weeks we will hear nothing of him or Hunter. There is just too much going on in the world for any story to last longer than a few weeks before the story is lost in current events. I see that a 2019 mass murder is just coming to trial this month. With delays like this, there is no justice.

      I wonder too if any will be prosecuted. If the trials and jury selection are in DC then it’s doubtful any — including Merrick — would be sent to jail. The trials would be framed as the Republicans using the courts to further their political agenda. If you heard Stacy Plasket accuse Taibbi in Congress of reporting the Twitter files as a tool for Republican propaganda, that’s what we’d have.

      Merrick in particular strikes me as an angry, vengeful man. Don’t forget — this is the guy Obama wanted on the Supreme Court.

At least they will be very interesting ( yeah, I know the old Chinese curse).

    I’ll leave you with this thought: That that is, is, and that that is not is not that that is.

      No, the lie enters in the worldview of the People. To expel it would take far more energy, honesty, and pain than they have or can take. The French Revolution had to have some good in it, right? And Russia and China’s Communist Revolutions too. Both have entered into the narrative of the nations as legitimate parts of their history.

            During my several holiday tours of Vietnam – first, HCM City (Saigon), then Nha Trang and Da Lat, then Hanoi – I was astonished at the even-steven normality of urban life there. I qualify with “urban” because I was not privy to any desperate peasant scenes in the villages, assuming that is the case.

            Apart from the steep challenge of a very tough language to learn (and remarkably few Vietnamese are conversant in western languages) I’d say that it might be an appealing choice of a place to settle, assuming you had some dough squirreled away or were a successful digital nomad. Great climate, low crime rate and no sense of the surveillance or oppressive fear that you get in many socialist societies. People you meet seem pleasantly optimistic, in spite of a modest income level.

            I walked and bicycled for hours every day, and sat down and conversed with anybody who’d bend my ear. The experience was quite positive. The War? Not interested. Ancient history. You may as well try to gin up interest in World War 1. Still, you are advised to avoid Da Nang as there is still measurable residue of Agent Orange around.

    Targeting CO2 (a key nutrient at the bottom of the food change that supports all life on this green planet) is their Orwellian way of turning all meaning upside down and laughing at us at the same time. Taxing/limiting CO2 will enslave all of humanity; the scamdemic lockdowns will pale in comparison.

      It does not matter if it is Carbon.
      They could tell you it is hydrogen or nitrogen or … Krypton, and most people would believe it because

      A) they are ignorant. Total lack of any “scientific” knowledge
      B) They believe anything an “authority” tells them be it the media, politician, a billionaire
      C) They lack critical thinking and are totally oblivious to ulterior or underlying motives.

      Carbon is merely their chosen vehicle for control.
      It’s tidy, it underpins everything

      • JohnAZ April 24, 2023 at 11:30 am #

        Carbon matters as it is the source of the creation of life, the bottom of the food chain.

        Photosynthesis is the creative process in today’s oxygen rich world. Carbon is inert, but an enzyme creates sugar from carbon and life goes on.

        New forms of “weird” life have been discovered not involving photosynthesis but they are products of other forms of energy entrapment.

        Something has to trap solar energy into carbon to carbon bonds, ie sugar, that is the key to life, creation.

        Carbon is such a great tool for control.

        BTW, satellite scanning of the earth’s surface show that the earth is greening up. Libya and Egypt are piping water into the desert and farming it.

        The “little lady” and I got trapped in Cat.5 Hurricane Wilma whilst in Cancun. We were at an “all inclusive” but being the nomad I am, I brought all of the usual shit I travel with, candle stub, flashlight, break and shake light stix, multi-tool and emergency Cash.

        Well, the lights went out in the evac. center. People were crying in the dark. I remember thinking where are the flashlights? Didn’t anybody else bring a flashlight?…nope. So as the wind howled (150mph sustained) I cracked a light stick, people were startled by the crack but, when the glow stick reached full illumination, a hush came over and as I glanced around, everybody (about a hundred souls) was looking at that glow stick hanging from a piece of string tied to the dead ceiling fan. It was like they had just seen a miracle.

        We were the only people who had experienced “un-planned outages”. We were asked many times to loan the flashlights -nope! but if you need to go pee I’ll walk you there. There were a couple snooty gal (snooty at first, but after three days of no running water and greasy hair, things changed).

        There was a swimming pool on the prop. so I grabbed a bucket and we both took turns pouring cups of water over each other- bucket showers. When we came out, people remarked that we looked fresh outta the shower…Yep!

        I have absolutely no faith that my fellow Americans will be able to figure out the smallest problems in the coming chaos.

        Piece of advice, stick a piece of paper or cardboard between the batteries and the bulb, it’ll keep the flashlight from turning on in your kit.

    I’m supposing that many if not most of the regulars here have heard about how the Democratic Party will not be having any primary-debates in 2024. Joe Biden must really be deteriorating at a rapid rate! Of course, the fact that no way could Biden deal with going head-to-head with RFK Jr. in any event, likely had a lot to do with this decision. Since they probably plan on rigging another election anyway, why shouldn’t they take that attitude?

    “Joe Biden” will not be impeached, indicted, or charged with anything. Obama and Hilary Clinton weren’t either, and Donald Trump didn’t become “the first US president to be removed in a military junta”.

        Yes, even though I also am dubious about the notion of the powerful being held accountable for their depredations. Though one scenario I can imagine happening is that the USA will become so decrepit, dysfunctional, and ridden with chaotic social unrest that the military will feel the need to step and take over. And just as long as they keep some fig-leaf of the constitutional republic after they consolidate their power over the country, I doubt anybody except for the die-hards of whatever regime they replace will say boo about it.

        • DaveO907 April 24, 2023 at 3:14 pm #

          This military? Hmm… They for the most part seem preoccupied on the brass level in getting to their post-career jobs with the MIC. It’s like “That’s Heaven just over yonder, the Promised Land.”

          They are top-heavy with generals and admirals whose bedecked chests speak mainly to their “participation” in planning maneuvers and surviving by self-effacement in the kiss-my-ass-or-else bureaucracy.
          A brief spell with one-such John Kirby the Spokester for the Pentagon(?) who can only be compared to that woke caricature of a bull dog Mark Milley. Not exactly confidence-instilling nor appearing capable enough (brave enough) to go for the whole enchilada.

          Nope, any such takeover will be done by the CIA, Wall Street’s Praetorian Guard perhaps ultimately using the military. They’ve managed to keep us all deluded and complacent for all of these decades since November 1963 when the actual Coup occurred.

          And I have to hand it to them, they most assuredly have our “number” as the docile grazers that we have proven to be. And in this environment they’ve only grown stronger, as unmolested metastasizing cancers are wont to do.

      Also,

      Biden is supported by and organization at national level that no one even knows who they are. His mental health is not even a question, just watch him when he has to talk on his own, so he is a figurehead in this group. Call it what you want, I call it the Mob. Biden does what he is told to. The Mob probably cringes every time Biden speaks, but they have no real fear as they pretty much control things at national levels.

      Biden is the perfect dupe for the group. He is led day to day to do their bidding.

      The Mob scares me, because they exist and no one really knows who they are. They protect their identity with secrecy and need to know intelligence. The can lie, cheat and create situations because evereyone on DC is afraid of them. They are uniparty. They control the ballot box in the country and have done much effort in doing so as the electorate is the key to change in the country and they want no change to perturb their little game.

      Hence Biden in 2024.

      • Lyndy33 April 24, 2023 at 8:59 pm #

    Alpha History

    LENIN’S HANGING ORDER FOR THE KULAKS (1918)
    Lenin’s hanging order against the kulaks was sent to commissars in Penza, about 300 miles south-east of Moscow, in August 1918:

    “(Send this to Penza – to Comrades Kuraev, Bosh, Minkin and other Penza communists.)

    Comrades! The revolt by the five kulak volosts [regions] must be suppressed without mercy. The interest of the entire revolution demands this because we have now before us our final decisive battle with the kulaks.

    We need to set an example. You need to hang – hang without fail, and do it so that the public sees – at least 100 notorious kulaks, the rich, and the bloodsuckers. Publish their names. Take away all of their grain. Execute the hostages – in accordance with yesterday’s telegram.

    This needs to be accomplished in such a way that people for hundreds of miles around will see, tremble, know and scream out: let’s choke and strangle those blood-sucking kulaks. Telegraph us acknowledging receipt and execution of this.”

    Lenin

    “P.S. Use your toughest people for this”

    Approximately one week later, Lenin sent this follow up telegram:

    “I am extremely indignant that there has been absolutely nothing definite from you as to what serious measures have at last been carried out by you for ruthless suppression of the kulaks of five volosts and confiscation of their grain. Your inactivity is criminal. All efforts should be concentrated on a single volost which should be swept clean of all grain surpluses. Telegraph fulfilment.”

    Lenin

    Jarek: Communist revisionists try to shift all the atrocities onto Trotsky or the later, Stalin. Don’t let them get away with it.

    Klaus Schwab keeps a bust of Lenin in plain view.

He will not allow any other views to be heard and other than Tucker Carlson, Faux News is a bad joke. Raygun signed the 1st amnesty for illegals. If Carlson had someone on the show with counter views, he would let them have their say while looking at them with an incredulous expression and proceed to castigate them and destroy their arguments. I will relish the downfall of Faux without Carlson there to draw in the veiwers.

          Yes I know there’s lots of chaff about his privileged upbringing and his statement that he hated Trump but I can think of no one else who daily shined the light on governmental and deep state abuses as he did.

          Last week it was Dan Bongino and today Tucker. I even heard a rumor that Don Lemon was out. It’s the end of the world as we know it!

        Last week they made him call the Nashville shooter, “he” after refusing to do up until then. After the huge settlement, Fox was obviously going to be more careful to be politically correct. He didn’t fit in with that or didn’t want to fit in it with it.

    All of the shenanigans involving the biden crime family and its screw ups around the country and the world see important now. But, the US Corporation (the ‘country’ you and I unfortunately live in) defaulted in January of this year, the BRICS system, using non US$ currencies, controls 70% of global GDP, the US$ is being rejected for payment around the world, causing ‘supply chain’ disruptions in almost every category imports, from medical drugs to car parts, and the USCorp’s military is supposedly near out of ammo and other killing supplies. Also, the biden show has made a laughing stock of the former ‘USA’ across the globe. China and the BRICS group, in a recent meeting with USCorp minions made the demand of 1:1 parity of the US$ and the Yuan (now gold backed) for materials to continue to come to the USCorp: that’s a 85% devaluation of the US$!!!!!! (The USCorp walked away, but they will return soon, when nothing that is needed is available at the hospital, doctor’s office, grocery store, gas station, auto supply shops, etc., etc. )

    This is decline of empire folks. We’re about to go from big dick on the block to 3rd world status, as in SOON! When that happens we won’t give a damn about what happens in a shitfhole like washingtonDC or what an incompetent demented crime boss does or doesn’t do.

        There are huge numbers of heavily armed, very pissed off people, especially in red states, that are well fed, well housed, but still very pissed off for being lied to, stripped of fundamental rights, and generally treated as slaves by govmint ‘elites’ and their minions. They know or can find out where all these people live.

        Someone once wrote (if I recall it was someone in the 1917 Russia), ‘one sniper with a simple bolt action rifle can change governments;’ a hundred such snipers can change the world.’ Just say’in.

          On occasion this writer brings parallel bar therapy (“bands of iron” employed in Daniel Chapter 4 v-15 to preserve The Great Tree sheltering many) as a needful thing! While many hereabouts discuss hideouts, survival food-glorified K-rations- extra supplies for barter, and guns required to temporarily maintain position. Water and bouillon cubes should not be forgotten… How much water is needed to serve 25 year dried food powders? Spices?

          Also on our list is “North American Water And Power Alliance” suite of engineering features for lateral transfer of surplus winter water flows between continental watersheds, utilizing existing lakebeds enroute for storage. With British Columbia/Grand Coulee far west, numerous natural waterway and storage basins present themselves, stretching east to the Great Lakes, and South to Mexico. Certainly many a water resources engineer yearns for ways and means of passing along to storage the extra trillions of gallons already flowing downstream, and still to come this summer.

          Instead of reparations, employment in water reclamation? American maximum rail mileage was achieved coincidental with BP & Standard of New York (Socony Vacuum) divvying up Ottoman Empire Muslim oil provinces -Israel but a glimmer in Evangelic’ eyes.. US a lending not a borrowing country. As planned by the road gang, for the next 3/4 century came systematic destruction of local rail matrix, replaced by negro (transient labor) county highway builders, “just-in-time” retail supply, and inventory tax forcing constant truck delivery and money for roads, too!

          To the job at hand replacing de minimis North American breadbasket rail branch rebuild, emulating once was, and shadowing ongoing Chinese domestic generic & High Speed rail projects assuring Famine Hedge through wars and cyberattack on AI controlled motor transport. US Mormon Church leadership, Evangelicals, Jesuits, and service orgs like The Lions, and Rotary are among NGO with savvy membership well aware America is right now in the Cuban Missile Crisis 2.0.

          It may be too much to even ask the NAACP and other “rights groups” to consider involvement in the needed all due haste railway matrix rebuild project, but here it is boys & Girls. A job is a job, what the hey… James Howard Kunstler enterprises has our contacts, including Christopher C. Swan’s rail maps and graphics which include stand alone node development built around Hydrogen generation/potable water supply, and electricity for local rail segments of the continental matrix.

          Has RFK jr. met Christopher Swan?

            Fortunately our water table is quite high here and I have a hand pump to provide the neighborhood with water in the event the electricity goes off. If I hook up my solar option, I can get 150 gals per hour when the sun shines. But here in the high desert , nothing is grown and a freeze every month of the year pretty much takes care of gardens except for zucchinis. 🙂

            4014,

            Access to water is a key part of dealing with supply disruptions. Part of addressing this is found in the decision of where to live; like having easy access to a river. Part is whatever you rig up on your property, like a well, water pumps, and power. Thanks for the mention of water. JHK’s description of the fictitious Union Grove made a huge impression on me as far as the natural availability of water.

The media would play it up as a reparations event, since their ilk built that house after all, under duress for not pay.

      Neuro,

      Here’s a zero hedge article:

      httpxs://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/its-defund-global-police-moment-jen-says-de-dollarization-happening-stunning-pace

      I put an x into “https” to trip up the censor.

      When we talk about de-dollarization, we can talk about transactions or we can talk about holdings. This article is about holdings, ie reserves. The analyst Stephen Jen says that after 20 years of declining US dollar global reserves (from 2001 – 2021 global reserves in US dollars went from about 73% to 55%) then in 2022 they dropped sharply to 47%.

      The curve appears be going parabolic, shall we say, only to the downside.

      Here’s a direct quote from the article:

      But below the surface, the dollar’s fecal matter is striking rotating objects at an increasing pace and Stephen Jen – infamous for his coining of the ‘dollar smile’ while at Morgan Stanley which posits that the US Dollar tends to do well when the economy is soaring or slumping – recently quantified just how rapidly the de-dollarization is ocurring.

      Jen, who now runs money at Eurizon SLJ, warned in a recent briefing note, that the dollar is losing its reserve status at a faster pace than generally accepted, as many analysts have failed to account for last year’s frantic swings in exchange rates.

      “The dollar suffered a stunning collapse in 2022 in its market share as a reserve currency, presumably due to its muscular use of sanctions,” Jen and his colleague Joana Freire wrote.

      “Exceptional actions taken by the US and its allies against Russia have startled large reserve-holding countries,” most of which are emerging economies from the so-called Global South, they said.

      As The FT reports, Jen estimates that if you adjust for price changes the dollar’s share of official global reserve currencies has gone from about 73 per cent in 2001 to around 55 per cent in 2021.

      Then, last year, it fell to 47 percent of total global reserves.

      • neurodoc April 24, 2023 at 3:47 pm #

        Mrs_Saj: Thanks for the article and the citation; nice trick with the X insertion into https.

        The article you cite provides yet another set of data that confirms the progressively rapid collapse of the us$. Anyone in their right mind will be moving their us$ out of the big banks and out of all financial institutions if they can (stock markets included). Even commodities denominated in us$ held by the broker will be decimated. Real estate, precious metals, and crypto never looked better (not financial advice) 🙂 Also the precious metal ‘lead’ is going to be particularly useful as we transition into 3rd world status and WMBH.

        A quick story: one of the partners in my former medical group was from Peru and was a high school senior when they had a major devaluation of their currency. He was from an upper middle class family and his grand mother was considered ‘wealthy.’ One monday morning they all awoke to a devaluation by 90%; 500K in the bank the day before, became 50K (similar to what China wants from the US). Chaos ensued as many businesses denied the deval and tried to make people pay in the former currency value. The Shining Path communist gorilla movement formed, in part, out of that choas and became very popular.

        • mrs_saj April 24, 2023 at 9:02 pm #

    Good morning Mr. K and CFN and happy Monday to all!!

    Yes, I am tired of the Joe Biden regime. If they want to entertain us with fake and phony regimes then they need to do better because the JB regime sucks big time.

    Tucker Carlson is leaving Fox News. This is wonderful news. Fox News doesn’t deserve him. The Murdochs are part of the regime so ultimately this doesn’t come as a surprise. Wouldn’t it be amazing to see Tucker and others like Alex Jones form an entirely new network? Maybe it won’t happen but I can certainly dream. Might as well dream big and make it a whopper lol. 🙂

    • cowbell81 April 24, 2023 at 12:44 pm #

      That’s a great idea, they should start an entirely new and independent network. It could be tied into Trump’s Truth Social. At last, a place you could go to for all the real, honest news!

      • SoftStarLight April 24, 2023 at 1:34 pm #

        Yes, i also think it is a wonderful idea if it could actually be put into practice. Trump himself should be a regular contributor imo.

    • JackStraw April 24, 2023 at 12:48 pm #

      You couldn’t have Jones involved in any way. He’s way too toxic for any type of serious endeavor.

      • SoftStarLight April 24, 2023 at 1:36 pm #

        Hmmm I never thought of Alex Jones as toxic so I would need to consider that further.

      • Islander April 24, 2023 at 6:40 pm #

        Agree.

        Tucker is too smart to tie himself to Alex Jones.

        I don’t mean to denigrate Alex Jones.

        He has his uses.
        But he also has his problems.
        Perhaps as an occasional guest. But that’s all.

        Tucker doesn’t need anyone else.

        He could start the TBC–Tucker Broadcasting Corp.

        • Heartlander April 24, 2023 at 7:41 pm #

          Alex Jones has turned out to be right about a lot more things than my old self would have imagined possible five years ago. But after the last three years, I’m not the same person anymore.

          I find that Jones gets more things right than wrong, but unfortunately his STYLE is utterly toxic. Even with friendly, sympathetic interviewers, he rants, interrupts, talks over the other person, and is just generally obnoxious and off-putting. Plus, he comes off sounding like a huckster when he pitches his various product lines.

          Tucker Carlson, on the other hand, is a class act. He deserves better than AJ .

          • Islander April 25, 2023 at 8:11 am #

            Heartlander.

            My thoughts exactly re AJ.

          • Night Owl April 25, 2023 at 9:57 am #

            I would have to disagree somewhat.

            Carlson has done several interviews with AJ and the two are friends.

            His style is grating at times, and the most annoying aspect of Infowars is the constant shilling for products, but in reality it is nearly their entire source of income.

            AJ has been right about so many things that saying Carlson (who was long a corporate hack) deserves “better” than AJ, says more about what you value than it does AJ.

            Personally I would put stopping the global corporate coup and incoming digital plantation far above whatever petty issues you have with an individual’s style. Regardless of his style, he knew what many of us have come to know decades ago. Perhaps a bit of humility is in order.

          • Islander April 25, 2023 at 2:51 pm #

            NO,

            Perhaps “style” is the wrong word.

            I don’t know what the right word is.

            I can hardly bear to watch/listen to him. It is practically painful.

            His voice, his screaming, his constant interrupting of his guests on his show.

            Some of whom have had a lot to say—when AJ shuts up and lets them say it.

            Being on the stage, in a film, on TV, on video—all are performances. You might be delivering Shakespeare, but if you are unwatchable, Shakespeare will not get through.

            As a performer AJ needs to get his act together. Quite possibly his current audience does love him just as he is. Just as some people love drag queen story hours. I am not one of them, though.

            It might be a good idea for AJ to get out of the way and have transcripts made of his presentations.

          • Night Owl April 25, 2023 at 6:16 pm #

            I don’t disagree in general. AJ would benefit from toning things down at times.

            Thing is, I think he attempts to communicate with as broad an audience as possible. If you have listened to some of his more in-depth rants, there is no doubt his IQ is off the charts. At the same time, he understands that he needs to appeal to the common man, and many of those individuals would not listen to dry intellectual discussion on a regular basis.

            AJ is also pretty funny, and he is at his best when mixing humor with the heavier stuff. The best balance is struck when he interviews guests who are more sensitive to social mores than AJ allows himself to be. The roster of big names from government, media, etc., that have appeared on Infowars is actually pretty impressive.

            Years ago, I never thought I would say any of this. 🙂

        • SoftStarLight April 25, 2023 at 2:34 am #

          Alex could at least be a contributor at TBC. He does have interesting things to say and he is generally years ahead of other commentators in terms of his understanding of what is really going on.

          • cbeard April 25, 2023 at 8:38 pm #

            I don’t have cable and have never watched Alex Jones. From the above description of his interview style, he sounds like Hannity or Limbaugh. I’d pick Tucker over any of them.

  32. jim April 24, 2023 at 12:43 pm #

    I want to believe that this is true what Jim says here:

    “They managed to roll enough of the American public in the process to maintain power and influence over them via control of the news, censorship and use of the captive legal system to harass and punish their enemies. And now, it is all falling apart.

    But the apparent demise of theTucker Carlson show has really set off my internal alarm bells. I see this uniparty narrative control move as another step in consolidating power–not in trying to maintain it.

    I don’t want to believe that the rule of law and the constitution are dead but but it more and more seems that this is the case.

    Everyone here who supports the internal collapse assumption please tell me why this path is more likely than some kind of ongoing consolidating dictatorship move.

    • SoftStarLight April 24, 2023 at 1:39 pm #

      Well, not sure, but could it also be interpreted the Tucker leaving Fox is going to cause Fox to implode itself and become about as meaningless as CNN? Most people watch Fox for Tucker at this point.

        SSL,

        That is what is so startling. The Murdochs seem to like money. The playbook for destroying a media platform can be seen by looking at CNN. So why would the Murdochs purposefully make Fox News unwatchable? They are pandering to the left, clearly. But they are doing so at the expense of their pocketbooks.

        Carlson almost single-handedly rallied Americans against BLM in 2020 when virtually everyone else was kneeling to them and licking their boots.

        The Deep State does not want him running interference against their street mobs in 2024, so they took him out now to deprive him of that FOX megaphone for his views.

      • Islander April 24, 2023 at 6:44 pm #

        Alex Berenson has a substack on Tucker.

        Excerpt:

        “. . . I don’t know why Tucker and Fox parted ways so abruptly this morning.

        What I do know: The glee on the left about Tucker’s departure is misplaced. Tucker isn’t going anywhere. He has said he won’t run for President. Make no mistake, he would instantly be a serious threat for the Republican nomination if he did.

        But if he chooses to stay in media, he will be in line for a payday from a streaming service far, far larger than what he currently makes at Fox. A few months ago, Steven Crowder – who is basically unknown outside right-wing media – turned down a $12.5 million a year offer from the Daily Wire. That’s more than Tucker was making in 2020, according to CNN.

        Even if Tucker got a big pay hike in the last two years, he was still the best bargain in television – which is why Fox stock fell 5 percent when it announced his departure, before recovering slightly. Tucker, who has recently been doing more and more long-form interviews, could easily sign the first billion-dollar deal with a streaming service for a four or five year exclusive.

        He won’t lose any influence, either. You may have noticed that Joe Rogan hasn’t been hurt by moving from YouTube to Spotify. Voices like Tucker and Rogan are powerful enough to bring their audiences with them, which is why they can demand such big paydays.

        In fact, if Tucker really wanted to cause trouble, he’d make Chris Licht, CNN’s chief executive, an offer Licht couldn’t refuse – I’ll reboot CNN for you, Chris, and you won’t have to pay me market rate.

        Never happen, of course. Tucker is due for what pro athletes like to call “generational wealth” – money your kids can’t blow no matter how hard they try. Why wouldn’t he take it?

        But Tucker to CNN! Just indulge the thought for a minute, and imagine the weeping on the left that would result. . . .”

    Saw an interesting sci-fi movie called “The Island” made in 2005.

    The plot is about how big pharma branched out into human cloning for big $$$ and more profit.

    Not so sure it’s sci-fi or reality, as cloning is old technology, and we may have more human clones walking about than we are aware of. Joe Biden, Trump?

    We know for sure that Joe Biden has at least three or four movie doubles that appear from the same movie studio, which I believe is located somewhere in Georgia. We may end up with a WEF clone as POTUS?

    Also heard rumor that the Dems are grooming Gavin Newsom, Dan Crenshaw of Texas and Tulsi Gabbard for 2024, all three are graduates of Klaus Schwab’s Young Global Leader school.

    The Democratic Party has no chance of success with Biden and Trump is merely a mockery of U.S. politics in so far as he will never obtain high office ever again given his divisiveness run amok January 6th 2021.

    Biden is far too old to be a helmsman and Trump offends most that are educated enough to know better.

      From my perspective Tucker was beginning to understand how the real networks of power function in our country and he was letting his viewership in on his insights.

      Consequently, he was becoming far too dangerous.

      It may also be the case that in his own way he couldn’t really believe (deep down) that he was expendable.

      As i stated the other day most of us (including myself) are still dealing with the psychological consequences of the apparent actual imposition of some new type of digital/AI dictatorship run by the intelligence networks.

      A part of each of us still wants to believe that simply voting for a better Presidential candidate will solve our problems while those who actually rule us chuckle at this naive hope–and continue to privately think–dream on suckers!

      • Mick April 24, 2023 at 2:49 pm #

        You’re right…..No Presidential candidate, not even the Golden Golum of Greatness part 2 will solve the problems.

        The Founders never intended for the populace to vote directly for the President or for US Senators. We need to go back to the original ways.

    I just turned 50, I remember a time back in redneck high school that my fellow liberal nerd friend and I bonded over music.

    In a place and a time when you had to actively and aggressively seek out alternative music, we did together, making that weekly road trip to St.Louis city and their independent record stores.

    He’s now a hypocritical woke corporate douchebag, I haven’t talked to him in years, but our other HS friend has kept me abreast of his behavior.

    So when he and I listened to Dead Kennedys on tape in the car, what was he hearing?

    Because I always heard a representation of truth to power, or at least a sincere, albeit aggressive attempt at it. The music is what helped me survive the authoritarian rule of HS and the ignorant suppression of that independent from my peers.

    It’s what I still often rely on to get through the goddamn day.
    Here’s Jello Biafra with perhaps some prescient words.

    KILL THE POOR

    Efficiency and progress is ours once more
    Now that we have the neutron bomb
    It’s nice and quick and clean and gets things done
    Away with excess enemy
    But no less value to property
    No sense in war but perfect sense at home
    The sun beams down on a brand new day
    No more welfare tax to pay
    Unsightly slums gone up in flashing light
    Jobless millions whisked away
    At last we have more room to play
    All systems go to kill the poor tonight
    Gonna kill, kill, kill, kill, kill the poor
    Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill the poor
    Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill the poor tonight

      No one likes us, I don’t know why
      We may not be perfect, but heaven knows we try
      But all around even our old friends put us down
      Lets drop the big one and see what happens

      We give them money, but are they grateful?
      No, they’re spiteful and they’re hateful
      They don’t respect us, so let’s surprise them
      We’ll drop the big one and pulverize them

      Asia’s crowded and Europe’s too old
      Africa is far too hot and Canada’s too cold
      And South America stole our name
      Let’s drop the big one
      There’ll be no one left to blame us

      We’ll save Australia
      Don’t wanna hurt no kangaroo
      We’ll build an All American amusement park there
      They got surfin too

      Boom goes London and boom Paris
      More room for you and more room for me
      And every city the whole world round
      Will just be another American town
      Oh how peaceful it will be
      We’ll set everybody free
      You’ll wear a Japanese kimono
      And there’ll be Italian shoes for me

      They all hate us anyhow
      So lets drop the big one now
      Let’s drop the big one now

        The people who react against Capitalism are usually worse than the Capitalists, just as greedy but less capable. Jealous, envious scumbags. They ally with jealous, envious, greedy minorities. The result is Communism – which only succeeds to the extent it denies its own loser philosophy by putting capable people in power. Not the losers who actually believe in the equality nonsense.

    If RFK was serious and smart, he’d announce Tulsi Gabbard as his VP and run as an independent. The fact that he has done neither tells me he’s either stupid or a distraction, just like Bernie Sanders. Give him money, and it ends up going to the DNC.

    Pish; none of the Biden crime family will ever be prosecuted or brought to justice. They’ll pick some low-level patsy and slap him on the wrist. Maybe. The rest of them will be painting pictures by the pool, just like GWB, one of the biggest war criminals of all time.

    • SoftStarLight April 24, 2023 at 2:53 pm #

      Or what if Trump and RKF Jr. ran on an independent ticket? I hear ya though. Both parties are scams and hoaxes. We need a new “Peoples Party” or “America Party”. I don’t know I could think of tons of names probably but you get the point.

      The DNC will absolutely not allow RFK, Jr. to get the nomination. Talk about a rigged outfit, the DNC encouraged Ohio to gerrymander Dennis Kucinich out of office over ten years ago because he spoke out against the Dem Party becoming the War Party, and he was very critical of Obamacare. But of course Obama famously twisted his arm into getting on board, but it didn’t matter. The neo-lib and very corporate fascist DNC marked him for destruction. Even though it led to a Republican getting that seat.

      So, no, RFK, Jr is on the DNC shit list. He has no chance running with that shit party.

          WANT TO KNOW THE AGENCY WITH THE MOST WIRETAPS RUNNING?
          The DEA they literally have a rubber stamp for getting the warrant and it is big money for each wiretap.

            I think that, when the DEA has an approved wiretap, they just go to the NSA for it’s service. The NSA captures everything.

            So, do you disapprove of the DEA doing its job? Or do you suspect that it ISN’T doing its job and is using these easy-to-get warrants for other reasons? I’d like to know more about this.

            Doing it’s job now that is a great question.

            What is the job or role of DEA?

            They only wanted huge busts and none of the agents were allowed or willing to start from the gound up to get the middle guys.

      I was just telling a friend last week that I expect FOX to re-brand over the next 5 years. Looks like it’s proceeding faster than I thought it would.

      But, I do have a feeling that Tucker getting the boot is a ‘double top-secret’ condition of last week’s settlement with Dominion.

      As in, either Mr. Carlson apologizes publicly, or he goes.

      • tucsonspur April 24, 2023 at 3:14 pm #

      • Wizard of the Saddle April 24, 2023 at 3:17 pm #

        This is a take on Carlson’s firing that I can believe……but one does wonder how FOX will manage the double-whammy of not only paying out the massive settlement, but also the massive loss of revenue from advertisers when Tucker departs?

        This is the day that FOX News begins to fade away as the last semi-legitimate mass media major news organ of the Right on television.

        All that is left is OAN and they are not on 90% of cable providers.

      • Night Owl April 24, 2023 at 6:42 pm #

        The only credibility Fox had was through Carlson and Bongino.

        They clearly felt the financial benefits of Carlson outweighed any damage to the globalist Uniparty narratives mouthed by most of the rest of the staff.

        The WEFers know they are nearly backed into a corner. They are now going to attempt to force their full agenda in an effort to save the ship. Fox must now drop all pretense of being “balanced” in any way, shape, or form (not that anyone with an IQ above room temperature ever believed that line anyways).

    Isn’t it funny that Tucker Carlson, who passionately hates Trump privately but kisses the elephant’s grotesquely obese and stinky buttocks in public, is fired for lies only after Fox is forced to pay a fortune for allowing Tucker to go along with Trump’s cowardly refusal to admit he lost fair and square? Chickens come home to roost, my friends, which is why the fraud is going to jail and Tucker is unemployed. There was a time when the word Republican stood for integrity. Now, it stands for sexism and racism. So sad. Once, Republicans could have been contenders. Now, they’re frauds who front for millionaires. So sad. You can complain about this truth, but I call it the way it is.

    • Wizard of the Saddle April 24, 2023 at 3:12 pm #

      Prediction: FOX News ratings will plummet. Tucker is the biggest draw on cable news. His viewers will leave with him. He was the only reason I still occasionally tuned in to FOX. Bongino and Waters were decent too, but FAR behind Tucker.

      The real question is this: What media outlet will Tucker Carlson instantly energize and elevate when he lands there?

      Wiz,

      I don’t have any great conspiracy theories.

      The closeness of the timing is extremely weird. But Tucker is a behemoth in the land of alt-media or red-pill-politics. Lemon is a gnat on the ass of a gerbil (bad pun) as far as the left goes. Nobody watches his show except maybe his mother if she happens to be home at that hour.

      So if it’s being pitched as some sort of quid pro quo (and I haven’t seen that), I’m not buying it.

    • Jarek April 25, 2023 at 1:22 pm #

      Tucker thought Don was hilarious, a loose low IQ cannon. He got demoted for being bitchy with his female cohosts, talking being women being over the hill doesn’t play well their target audience. Don is in his prime and always will be!

      Connection? Probably just the mundane one of using Tucker’s firing to mute their own firing of Lemon. They weren’t allies. To the extent Lemon had any viewpoints, they were politically correct ones.

    “The trouble with lying, of course, is that it requires a never-ending struggle of covering up prior lies, and then that task requires the invention of new lies… in a self-reinforcing feedback loop…”

    Human Beings absolutely hate the idea of suffering consequences. We will do almost anything to avoid the consequences of our actions.

    When we were little kids, we’d sit at the table and we’d spill milk all over the place. And our mother would come in and look sternly in our direction and say, ‘Did You Spill The Milk?!. And without missing a beat we’d reply, ‘Not Me! Not Me!’. Which of course was laughingly absurd because there was only you in the room and your mother sure-as-hell didn’t spill it. But we didn’t want to suffer any consequences for being the dunce that made a big mess that was our own fault. So we learned early that lying seemed the easier course than facing up to the cold hard fact that we had done something stupid and needed to face up to that.

    And then some of us milk-spillers grew up one day and took positions in the big bad World as adults. And we continued to employ the time-tested technique of lying whenever consequences got too dangerously close to our personage.

    Besides, didn’t we grow up learning that politicians lie all the time and get rich off that and have long and entitled careers? Not to mention big business leaders and people who concoct toxic vaccines and teachers and preachers who spread institutionalized lies in order to keep their jobs. In short… Lying is the true fuel that powers America and the World. Lies hold the Fake World we all live in, together. Not to mention that Lies always favor the Dark State that lives and prospers of all that constant lying.

    We lie about the origin of our species. We lie to each other with our religions. We lie to our significant others. We lie to our kids and families. And we begin this Lifetime of Lies by lying to ourselves and not facing up to who and what we are. And that is, a flawed human being that makes mistakes and does foolish things who deserves to learn the value of facing consequences for those acts.

    And that process is not some ‘Karen thing’ of just finding fault and feeling bad about ourselves. No, love for others begins with love for self. Not the sickly self-centered kind but a love born of appreciation for the gift of life and the better parts of ourselves and in spite of our flaws.

    Truth begins with the ceasing of lies. Honesty begins with being honest with oneself. The path of lies is a pathway to ruin which leads to nothing but disharmony and pain.

    Some say the Truth Hurts. Maybe so, but it hurts much less than the alternative. And we all get a much better Planet to live on.

      I believe in Karma. There is good Karma and bad Karma. Most people believe in bad Karma: that if one does something bad, then something bad then happens to them. I also believe in good Karma: if you do something nice then something nice will happen to you. The belief in good Karma is very important as you grow older. Just be nice to others and things will work out for you to the better.

        She has long realized that Saul and her had tried to gaslight and destroy a man – a man who had been very good to her, and whose only crime was his pomposity.

      He has enraged Anglin for his pro-Gay marriage stance, thus alienating millions or erstwhile supporters.

      He knows more than he says. He may well hate Trump – who can blame him? And of course he knows how ruthlessly Whites are being persecuted, and have been for generations. His main writer was a White Nationalist, until he was doxed and forced out.

    If you keep on tellin’ me those lies
    Still goin’ out with other guys
    There’ll come a day I’ll be gone
    Take my advice, won’t be long

    When that day comes, won’t be mad
    Be free of you, but I’ll still be sad
    In spite of your cheatin’, still love you so
    I’ll be unhappy if I let you go
    Liar, liar, pants on fire
    Your nose is longer than a telephone wire

      Liar liar pants on fire etc. I reckon that last phrase is a reference to Pinochio’s nose. Pinochio is supposedly a children’t story, but I can’t make much sense out of the story – it’s wierd. And we’d say these exact words as are in the last two phrases of the song above. This was back in elementary school in the 50’s. Another one similar was to sing out the names of a boy and a girl immediately in your group and say it like this

      “Bobby and Suzy sittin’ in a tree – K – I – S – S – I – N – Gee !”

      You’d say this in a somewhat poetic manner with a certain song like cadence going with it. Stuff like this would happen in mixed groups during recess or after school. We’d be doing stuff like playing hopscotch in the street using our own chalk, playing dodgeball, marbles, or the “Mother May I?” game. Liar! was a frequently heard phrase, along with “I’m gonna tell on yooooooouuu!”

    Again, this is pure speculation on my part, but I’m searching tor some hope in this Tucker situation.

    Fox and company appear (at this moment, absent further details) to have chosen power (maintaining at all costs the correct Washington national narrative about such items as Ukraine, role of intelligence networks, etc) over profits by choosing to toss Tucker with such coercive suddeness.

    A part of me has always been a fan of Machiavelli”s concept of power–that more power is present, the more fully it is absent.

    Maybe there is a real fear among the network power people that they risk losing narrative control and so they had to engage in a sudden overt power move–or maybe (my pessimistic side) they know a real world war is coming and it is imperative to clear the decks of any prominent skeptics.

      My predictions to piggy-back off your statement: WWIII to start in full form by July, followed by extensive looting and rioting throughout many large US cities during the warm summer months, once our economy and the US Dollar starts to crash in earnest.

        WWIII to start in full form by July, based on what do you see this?

        • cowbell81 April 24, 2023 at 5:19 pm #

          The Ukraine will start to run out of munitions and ambitions to launch their offensives, and Russia will see this as an “in” to get the job done. This will cause other countries to finally pull all their chips in, along with Sweden and Norway petitioning to NATO membership.

          Per an Alexa prompt: “World War III starts on November 23, 2023 at 6:05pm, when Russia launches an attack against Germany,” the voice-activated gadget appears to say, in response to a question about the start of World War III.”

          We will see who is right.

      “Analysis
      It has not rained for sixty-two days, and a rumor has spread “through the bloody September twilight … like fire in dry grass.” Men gathered in a barber shop in—the air stale—discuss the rumor, linking a local white woman, Minnie Cooper, with a black man named Will Mayes.
      The weather creates an oppressive backdrop throughout the story. The relentless hot, dry weather has riled the residents of this small Mississippi town, and the “bloody” twilight forebodes the violence to come.” Dry September, Faulkner

          Rupert Murdoch allegedly stepped in and had Tucker “separate” from Fox.

          Citing Ray Epps as one of the reasons.

          Conveniently after Epps was featured on 60 Big Pharma Commercials., Uh, 60 Minutes, Sunday evening. Thanks to his deep state handlers.

            Yes it is. The only reason Tucker was there as long as he was is that Fox was raking in the cash from both sides. A business decision.

            Now, the potential risk of letting him delve too far into truther issues outweighs the financial benefits.

            He was calling the Nashville shooter a she, dead naming her, and constantly saying the Vax was dangerous and that the election may have been fraudulent.

            How long were they going to allow Fox to keep him just because he made money for them? They let Fox off with paying half. They “just” had to admit the election was legit and perhaps fire Carlson. Or maybe they gave him an ultimatum and he said no.

            On Friday, he called the Nashville shooter a man. That’s the last time he was on. Maybe he made up his mind after that.

            “They let Fox off with paying half. They “just” had to admit the election was legit and perhaps fire Carlson.” ~ Jarek

            What if the settlement is that if any notion of an ill-legitimate election is eluded by Fox, Tucker, or any other employee, then Fox will have to pay the promoted settlement amount (the funds can just sit in an escrow account for a period of time, and then be disbursed according to the outcome).

            If financially crushing the opposition into silence (basically extortion) is acceptable, then how is that “justice for all”? Who is an authority to advocate for the population? Could a president ask for discovery and not be in conflict with a legal settlement?

            Sure looks like the system is being gamed into extinction.

      “If this thing had gone to trial, the entire Fox organization could have been toppled.” ~ tucsonspur

      I think you hit the nail on the head.

      Like shooting ducks in a gallery, Tucker was cashing-in by exposing the fallacy of all the lies. The jig was near finished, and to have any hope of salvaging their agenda, they needed to take-out the lead dog and set an example.

      This has been their SMO, with plenty of prior covert examples, like kneecapping Sidney Powell so discovery is never allowed.

      My prediction is that they are going to use their money and the legal system to crush any opposition, and if that doesn’t work, they resort to violence. If this is so, Tucker will be neutered, and it will send a message to any news organization that wants to provide a platform for their opposition. They will need to take-out the likes of Douglas MacGregor as well.

      Well said. None. It’s benevolent as long as you do what you are told.

      The alternatives were Fascism and National Socialism. That’s it.

      After the crash, they’ll be other alternatives, most of them bad. But given late stage industrialism, those three are the only ways. Classic Communism makes a forth, but only as a transitional form.

        It’s another example of socialism for me but not for thee. So basically just like corporations get socialism so do mainstream propaganda outlets. But that is because they are regime purveyors just like corporations are. But for everyone else it is as if they throw you into the brutal bull pen of the most egregious Darwinian capitalism you can imagine. So like you say, for alt news people there is no support of any kind so they all have to charge out the wazoo just to stay alive and break bread. I hate the whole system.

          Many are finally realizing that the system is, in the end, one large network that you either support in order to receive your crumbs, or that you reject, which then results in you having to figure out how to survive.

          I had another small reminder of just how top-down it all is. I am interviewing for a new position at a non-Beast operation, as I can no longer deal with working at my current place of business (a head of the WEF hydra).

          During my job search, it made me chuckle to see just how many other large corporations are all part of the matrix to the point that they have the exact same names for company initiatives, employee training programs, etc.

          It’s just one giant network manipulated by the same hidden hand, with messaging sent to the broader public by a McMedia that is fully integrated into said network.

          The reminders are everywhere once one understands that it truly is just one giant puppetshow.

            Interestingly, Dis (well, to me anyway, since I like stuff like that!), the word ‘quarantine’ comes from the French ‘quarantaine’ = 40 days, which was the isolation period respected by ships carrying sick sailors, I think.

            Just a little longer than the ‘3 weeks to flatten the curve’, but not as long as er … forever. Although, once they have us in facilities like that, ‘forever’ won’t be quite as long as it used to be.

          • GreenAlba April 25, 2023 at 5:45 pm #

            An interesting event in the film – the government mobile phone alert that tells everyone to leave their house and get into the buses that take them to the quarantine facility …

            Most prescient. Last Sunday (23/4), the UK government tested an emergency alert that was supposed to go to every mobile phone in the country (loads of us disabled our emergency notifications so as not to be ‘registered’). As so often happens in the UK, the whole thing was a fiasco. Lots of phones didn’t get the alarm at all, while other people were woken up in the wee small hours instead of getting the alarm at 3pm (no idea if anybody had a vaxx-facilitated heart attack when it went off!).

            Sometimes the fact that the government is inept when it comes to stuff like that gives me some encouragement.

          Our little town of 3,000 in the Teton foothills just received a major addition to its housing infrastructure. We had the disastrous misfortune of being only a 1.5 hour commute across an avalanche swept 9,000 ft. pass from the wealthiest county in the US of A. Since the cost of worker housing in Jackson Hole starts at $4,000 per month, naturally anyone with less than a doctor’s salary had to move to our side of the mountains. Soon rents tripled in price and the market responded by building cheaper buildings with little insulation and no sound control.

          The latest 200 unit “Town House” fronts on the main highway with a 30 foot setback. Architecturally it is almost an exact replica of the units featured in “Beyond the Reset.” The only difference is that rather than having food rations delivered by Amazon Drone, everyone drives their F350 Powerstroke Diesel pickup the 1/2 mile to the only market.

I can’t help thinking that once the economy collapses and the student economy with it, these units will be for everyone. They’ll have to drag me out of my home, which I’m pretty sure they will, one way or another.

        I too cannot afford all of the different substacks.

        But don’t blame the hard-working journalists.

        What else are they supposed to do to earn a living?

        IMO Substack should create some kind of subscription framework to make it easier for potential subscribers to afford multiple subs.

        I should think that increased volume could make up for less $$ per writer..

        This whole issue is why advertising has been fundamental to US journalism. That problem was supposed to be solved by NPR. But they have now be totally captured.

        Another good article at Unherd, about the transformation of the Dem Party between Carter and Biden, highlights this development (not really news, but the context is the destruction of the New Deal coalition and what has replaced it):

        httpX://unherd.com/2023/04/biden-has-killed-the-democratic-dream/?

        Viz:
        “And Biden possesses an ally that Carter did not have — the US media. America’s establishment newspapers and networks were often critical of Carter, and even though most journalists were Democrats, the prestige press attempted to treat Republicans fairly.

        “. . . But during the 2020s, America’s mainstream media organisations were radicalised into becoming more or less explicitly partisan Democratic outlets, even in their news coverage — playing up Republican scandals and downplaying anything harmful to Democrats. Biden has held far fewer press conferences than other presidents, raising questions about the effects of age.

        “Yet the press continues to treat him as a leader whom they must shelter and support, rather than a president to be questioned and investigated. . . .”
        ++++++++++

        And to eliminate any dissent from outlets that pay journalists.

        • MaryQueen April 25, 2023 at 11:08 am #

          I’m actually not blaming the journalists, just stating a reality, which you also just admitted, which is that we can’t afford to subscribe to them all. That tells me it’s a shitty system and not one built with the purpose of being able to best get the most information out there. Now it appears to be a means for people to be able to feed themselves (or profit) for their information. That’s fine, but the model by which they are doing it sucks, because there is no cohesion. I am wondering why so many were able to blog for free years ago but now they need to charge $$, also. I suppose more people are trying to make an actual living on writing a blog post a day rather than doing it because they love it in their free time. Not talking about seasoned journos going out on their own like Matt Taibbi. More like the 1000s or millions of unknown people (who are also worth reading).

    How come historically (and even today) the Russian Elites were apt to mimic the European Elites, but they never adopted the sport of “Golf”? Is it because of all of the ice and snow in Russia that it’s impossible to find that little white golf ball? Or, is it because you don’t want to let a bloke loose with a 9 Iron and a bottle of vodka?

    In a golf game between Joe Biden and Putin, I bet that “Smoking Joe” would kick Putin’s ass?

      Let’s forget about golf competition for a moment – another useless “sport” that included being played by British bluebloods and other wealthy people who had way too much spare time.

      What I wish too see is “Joe Biden” and Mr. Putin appearing on The Voice or American Idol tv shows. Let’s see which of these two is the better singer. Go check out on you tube Mr. Putin singing “Blueberry Hill” at some sort of event. And he was singing in English. For the contest to be fair, Joe Biden needs to sing at least one song in Russian. I’ll bet if they did that those shows’ ratings would explode.

    The U.S. is very young. NYC or New Amsterdam is a bit older. I suggest the movies The Gangs of New York and Sleepy Hollow. The first to see immigrants are not new and are a known quantity even if the unschooled politicians are unaware. The second has a brief look at policing practice in New Amsterdam again immigrants and poverty are not new news.

    Over time the violent criminal gangs make money and become the next generations politicians. They KNOW how to deal with violent criminal gangs. For now we have to deal with the spectacle of welfare grifters trying to deal with real violence and crime. Humorous when viewed from a distance.

    Don’t you just get so angry and perturbed when the intel police state throws a turbulent, tempestuous Monday your way? They do that because they know people are already dealing with a lot so they like to pile on. Like, oh wow look everybody is getting back to all their routines and they are already flustered so let’s fire Tucker and then fire Don Lemon and have Susan Rice step down to give em something to talk about. And let’s start mega censoring and throttling people again and make sure everybody knows that the Dems are not going to debate and the Fulton County DA is letting everyone know to get ready for big Trump indictments over the Summer and on and on it goes.

    Don”t let these stupid cursed people get you down and worked up. When you get stressed its time to take a break anyway. Everybody deserves a day off. So this week is gonna be a good week. A wonderful week. The best week ever! The best victory is to let them all know they can eat a bag of worms. And even in defeat you can just let them know that they may have won this time but they aren’t really all that great.

    Haiti and Sudan hitting some speed bumps on the road to Wakanda. Haiti, which should be more of a concern for us due to it’s close proximity to the the US, is in a state of total economic, societal & social collapse. Not much reporting on the situation in Haiti and what news there is, isn’t good. Like today, reports of necklacing on the streets of Port o Prince, famine in the countryside, and the fact central authority has dissolved and vicious street gangs control about 75% of the country. Should US Marines be sent back in to restore order? The situation seems hopeless.

    In Sudan, all western embassies being evacuated as the nation descends into tribal violence, bloodshed & chaos.

    In Chicago, mobs of YOUTH decend upon the downtown business district, beating people up, vandalizing automobiles, and looting surrounding stores and shops. Nearby suburban shopping malls have come under threat as well.

    The Wakanda movement is a worldwide event, breaking out everywhere. Even, it seems, in suburban Ct, as we learn last night 50 car windows smashed out in historic Wethersfield ~ a little midnight street action to show Whitey he can no longer hide out in his orderly, prosperous, leafy little Ct. town.

        Yeah Dis.

        One of the lessons of VietNam, as stated by Bob McNamara is do not get involved in local civil wars.

        Civil war has to end by a fourth turning, ie a change to one side or the other according to who wins. Diplomacy is a joke.

        Here we go again! What would the MIC have to do without a war to fight? World war is obsolete, too much loss, so I guess we have to put out brushfires.

        Problem is, putting out brushfires leaves embers behind causing reigniting and more war.

        • Islander April 25, 2023 at 3:02 pm #

          Many of these “local civil wars” have broken out because the USA meddled, trying to put “their” guy on top.

          Look at Libya. For starters.

          Then move on to Ukraine, where we fomented a coup that led to, essentially, a civil war.

        My porcelain self prefers the warmth. So Africa would make a perfect home. Plus with so many wondrous resources and environments if you find yourself getting too warm you could for instance retreat to the cool snows of Mt. Kilimanjaro for example. And southern Africa has temperate biomes as well. Also lots of cool retreats in the Atlas mountains.

          • SoftStarLight April 26, 2023 at 3:12 am #

            We were definitely in North Africa first imo. Or maybe at the same time we were also primarily in the Middle East area.
            Before the migrations into Europe and also into the Eurasian steppes. Prehistoric cave drawings in Libya and other places indicate that the people were White. The theory is that our very distant ancestors called the Iberomaurusian people crossed from Morocco into Spain first. If you look up the Iberomaurusian people you will find some depictions of them being Brown. But most of what I read about them indicates that they were tall and fair and Cro-Magnon. The Berbers are related to them too. And they are the fairer people of North Africa nowadays.

          • Jarek April 26, 2023 at 12:42 pm #

            The Spanish encountered stone age Whites – red haired giants in the Canary islands, in the Atlantic, a few hundred miles off the North African coast.

            From our perspective, the Spanish were devoid of curiousity about them, and just preceded to all but wipe them out. Of course they probably felt pretty much the same way about Germans and Scandanavians. Non-Catholics with an alien culture.

    Given the type of topics that Tucker covered, and the rather non-mainstream people he had on his show, well I think it is clear why he just had to go. (Questioning the war, pharmaceuticals, trans agenda, wokesterism, Fed policy, FBI agenda, etc….)

    Go back seventy years.

    What did Middle class Joe Average’s family look like.

    Dad breadwinner, worked out of home

    Mom. Homemaker, stayed home, raised kids, heck had the kids

    Women who worked worked “female” jobs

    Kids public schools, PTA made curriculum decisions

    Look at today in comparison

    Dad relegated to service sector jobs, military, or tech jobs, many no work at all.

    Mom. Just about lost her identity as homemaker, working service sector jobs, kids are secondary

    Kids. Lord, who knows, teachers are telling them they are not the right sex, the union is pushing Woke agendas, drag queens are trying to convince boys are girls, peer pressure on late developing girls are turning them to boys.

    Is there any wonder that the streets and government are both whacked out and no one seems to know who or what they are.

    Drugs,alcohol and porn have always kept the folks relatively quiet, that is why the government is encouraging their sale and use.

    The next generation is showing some gumption fighting back against this governmental domination. Another sign of the fourth turning’s rejection of the Woke liberal agenda?

          Of course. You know some people were saying that he isn’t going to be able to do any gig through like 2024 because of his contract. But Glenn Beck had Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly on via phone on his show on The Blaze and they were basically explaining that Tucker can’t go on another peer competitor like NBC. But he can do what he wishes in the digital space. Basically on the internet. So he can easily start up his own thing and have like a podcast or what have you. Basically they said he would make a fortune. So hopefully he will be up and running sooner than later. But it won’t be on a regular cable outlet. But who watches cable anymore anyway!?

    hi jinx
    shenanigans

    mischief

    These words would be more appropriate in describing the activities of children, like pulling a girl’s pigtails or throwing water balloons at passing cars, than the Dem Party’s theft of an election, Fauchi’s promotion of “safe and effective” vaccines, or the US’s instigation of wars everywhere.

            I typed Thomas Jefferson in this comment block and neither name got a squiggly line.

            I typed my own real first and last name and got no squiggly line.

          • cowbell81 April 25, 2023 at 4:00 pm #

            Apparently “Thomas Jefferson” and “Q. Shtik” are such prominent individuals that there is no doubt over their verified spelling, this is settled law so to speak. Either that, or Big Brother is watching you and has made their mark….

    All the recent talk about ChatGPT has made me curious just how clever this technology is. I would like to challenge ChatGPT with this direction:

    Discuss the theory of “peak oil” and couch your words in African American English vernacular.

    Perhaps some tech wizard here can execute this challenge for me since I haven’t the foggiest idea how to interface with ChatGPT.

      A college classmate who is an atronomer asked ChatGPT for a list of her publications.

      It came back with a list and some text saying that the list was typical but not complete.

      The titles, subject matter, authors, and journals all looked convincing.

      But not one of the entries was correct.

      ChatGPT just MUS.
      It is not a search engine.
      It is not reliable about anything.
      It is just a database. It is not a brain.

      Capisce?

      • SoftStarLight April 25, 2023 at 3:24 pm #

        Wow! So basically AI is a big idiot with a lot of information at its “fingertips”!

        • cowbell81 April 25, 2023 at 3:55 pm #

          I have tried using the Bing chat feature for various questions and information. It is really hilarious, and I recommend it. When I ask anything about Covid or Fauci lab leaks, it automatically shuts down by telling me it does not want to engage in further discussion on that topic. Gee, that seems awfully strange, don’t you think?

          • SoftStarLight April 25, 2023 at 4:41 pm #

            Did you try asking it about elections?

          • cowbell81 April 25, 2023 at 4:53 pm #

            To SSL, no I did not, but that isn’t a bad idea and I will try now! Hahaha….

            Asked: “Was the 2020 US presidential election stolen?”

            Response: There is no evidence that voter fraud led to Trump’s defeat in the 2020 presidential election1. However, some people hold a broader definition of “stolen” in this case1. The claim that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump has underscored most political discourse in the U.S. for over a year1.

            It is important to note that there are many sources of information available on this topic and it can be difficult to determine which sources are reliable and which are not. It is always a good idea to check multiple sources and evaluate their credibility before drawing any conclusions.

            I hope this helps!

          • SoftStarLight April 26, 2023 at 3:27 am #

            Wow ok that is very interesting thanks! So of course it said there is no evidence. That is the immediate standard retort. But I am surprised it went really any further than that at all. Particularly advising that one check multiple sources of information. I bet at some point that gets changed to possibly just stating there is no evidence and some people still debate it with no evidence without any of the other verbiage.

          • badberries April 27, 2023 at 12:58 pm #

            cowbell81, I ask Google to play a certain song and then I let Google select the following stream.

            After about 6-7 songs selected by Google, I’ll ask “Hey Google”, who is this artist? Google responds, “sorry I don’t have that information”.

            When all of the Boomer Rockers sold the rights to their music, Google was not required to give attribution.

            Oftentimes, I recognize the tune but not the variations inserted by AI. When I query who is this artist? the response is the same.

            MSN recently had a video of robots playing soccer and making their own “independent decisions” during the game.

            If that soccer game is representative of where our robot overlords are right now then I doubt we have much to fear in our lifetimes.

          • Islander April 25, 2023 at 8:29 pm #

            NO,

            I saw a video of robots dancing. Other viewers were impressed.

            Me: Meh. We could do a lot better than that when were were partying in college. Now, too.

            Show me two robots doing salsa partner dancing;

            On second thought, why would I want to watch two robots dancing?

            And, ever my question:
            Why are we wasting precious energy on this?

            Answer: AI is all about war–military applications.

            And the intersection of AI with nanotechnology, nanochips, etc. Conquest and control.

            Which is not a nice answer. But I think it might be the only one.

          • Jarek April 26, 2023 at 1:01 pm #

            Just a couple of things: AI can write very, very well about any topic, far faster than any human. College students are using to write their papers. Professors are employing anti-AI software to try and catch them. The software isn’t perfect and sometimes calls out people who just wrote their own papers.

            The technology of imitating faces and voices has vastly improved, making it impossible to know what is real and what isn’t – at least at this point. No doubt an anti-AI tech will evolve here as well.

            None of this is nothing. AI will take jobs and make fraud vastly easier. The fear is absolutely justified. NO is wrong….

        Yes, Rulo, the MSM really want us to believe it’s about nothing but pensions.

        It’s true that the French have always tenaciously held on to certain ‘hard-won’ social advantages, and it’s true that the retirement age is low compared to similar countries, although they do have to work 40 years to get a full pension. But in this instance, it’s obvious that there are lots of French people who have copped on to the globalist agenda as well.

        Having said that, I have friends who live in one of the Parisian satellite towns (the wife is English, a student flat-mate of mine from the 70s) and they appear to have no clue about any of it (the agenda, I mean), despite being intelligent people. She’s in a WhatsApp group with me and a couple of other student flatmates/friends and nobody has even mentioned that there’s anything going on in France at all. It’s very weird – I don’t know what the French mainstream media are covering or censoring.

            Well there is some controversy about it but apparently they did sign a prenup agreement of sorts. Allegedly the Queen made them sign it right before their wedding leaving them with little choice but to do so. It apparently protects the royal coffers. It makes a lot of sense and it also makes sense that all parties vehemently deny it. Because it goes against royal tradition apparently. I truly expect them to split up but they may both realize that they can make more money together than apart.

    I went to the library and perused the WSJ.

    There are a couple of stories on “near shoring” and supply chains.

    They both mention how companies—they sound to me like US companies—are fixing supply line issues by establishing factories closer to the US or ABC—Anywhere But China. India, Mexico, “even Indonesia.”

    But none in the US.

    IIRC, part of Trump’s plank was to “onshore” US companies.

    Also there is a story about the US military landing various military materiel on an island near Taiwan that belongs to the Philippines. I think the island is name Basco.

    httpX://www.wsj.com/articles/on-basco-island-south-of-taiwan-u-s-military-prepares-for-conflict-with-china-f7c5c8bc

    “Basco island
    Basco is located on Batan Island, the second largest among the Batanes Islands, the northernmost islands of the Philippines. The town has a domestic airport, Basco Airport, serving flights from Manila and Baguio. The Basco Lighthouse is one of the landmarks.
    What is Basco Batanes known as?
    Its capital is Basco, Batanes is one of the most beautiful provinces in the Philippines. It is also known as the “Home of the Winds”. Batanes is the northernmost and the smallest province in the country.”

    It looks like a subtropical paradise!
    But the WSJ describes it as a “rocky windswept island.”

    I look forward to seeing Chinese military installations appearing on “rocky, windswept” Cuba.

      West Indian former co workers tell me the Chinese are heavy into Jamaica. Here’s how the deal works, purportedly (so they tell me): Chinese show up & lend money on easy terms for capital improvements of vital infrastructure, at the same time wooing, wining & dining top Jamaican leadership. The construction is done mostly with imported Chinese labor, Chinese heavy equipment, and Chinese materials. Native Jamaicans are kept out of the loop. This time Jamaicans are the Coolies, and Chinese construction managers live in the best houses in Kingston, drive fancy cars, and have security details provided for them.Then invariably, when the Jamaican govt defaults on the loans, as was expected, the CCP claims ownership of the properties ~ seaports, airports, even the public roads. It’s a beautiful system, one the Chinese perfected on the African continent decades ago, most notably in Kenya.

        Predatory lending. The Blacks have no sense of time, living for the moment. It’s like taking candy from a baby.

        The Whites were brutal then too nice, then brutal again. Often sentimental and/or trying to convert them and then foolishly trusting them. Always confused and dithering. The Chinese want nothing from these people except for them to be gone.

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the reason the DNC decided not to hold any debates was BECAUSE OF RFK’s announcement.

    I said his entering the race would change the terrain. And I think it already has. We can see more clearly how tyrannical the Dem Party is.

    They have already “fixed” the primaries by putting South Carolina in first spot, instead of New Hampshire, since SC is where Basement Joe”‘s candidacy “suddenly” acquired some traction. They are going to pull the same stunt. How dumb are voters?

    This refusal to debate should be the signal for Kennedy to form a new party.
    Call it the National Debate Party. Or, the Constitutional Party.

    Debates should not be run by parties anyhow.
    They should be run—under official mandate—by some nonpartisan office of the federal govt.
    Ha ha ha!

      Agree. The DNC moved the first primary to South Carolina because Joe Biden supposedly is very popular among the Blacks of South Carolina. Someone like RFK will likely poll higher among White Democrat voters and so there is no way he would want the first primary to be in New Hampshire. Apparently now Trump doesn’t want to debate either. It sounds like though with him it is some sort of negotiation strategy to get the debates moved to a different venue or something. He said the RNC didn’t check in with him. He likely suspects the debate will be rigged complete with moderators who argue and debate him along with the other candidates. But he must debate if he wants to be taken seriously. Republicans, are a big number of them, still apparently expect that much.

      • JohnAZ April 26, 2023 at 10:36 am #

        Get it? Debates are a connection between the candidates and the voters. The Deep State do not want the vote, or at least the vote’s effect. The vote and its effect are being whittled away by just manipulating it then ignoring it.

    Suck My Largesse

    “@The Man They Call Zazelle:

    …Your comment suggests that the ‘capitalist’ who owns the restaurant of manufacturing plant takes the lion’s share of the revenues in return for mere ‘risk’ of his capital…

    […]

    …These ‘anti-capitalist’ theories about the exploitation of labor are based on the vague imaginings of people who’ve never done anything.” ~ Anthea, rest of comment: April 14, 2023 at 8:44 am

    ——

    Hi Anthea. I missed your comment but caught it while searching something else…

    Your anecdote doesn’t seem to fall precisely under what Stephanie McMillan was speaking about, which seems more along the lines of fundamental problems with the current system– real-life Monopoly and musical chairs games and pyramid/ponzi schemes and all that I guess…

    …And the ‘1%’ and ‘99%’, the ‘gutted middle class’ and ostensibly-increasing wealth disparities/divides, broken ‘social contracts’ and societal decline and collapse…

    Oh me oh my.

    The quote below from Charles Hugh Smith’s recent article seems to help underscore some problems with what might be similar to those kinds of games, like ‘capitalism’, ‘late-stage capitalism’ or the ‘crony-capitalist plutarchy’– call it/them what you will– vis-a-vis those who own small businesses, like small-scale soap-making or mom-and-pop bake shops and the like.

    Would Walmart/Big-Box have cheaper soaps/products than you and who would be your customers compared to Walmart’s? And why?

    ——

    “Everyone knows that the vast majority of wealth accumulation in America flows not from transparent effort on a level playing field, but from persuading the Central State (the Federal government and the Federal Reserve) to enforce cartels and grant monopolistic favors such as tax shelters designed for a handful of firms and unlimited credit to private banks.

    When scammers large and small live better than those creating value in the real economy, the Social Contract has ceased to exist. When the illegitimate process of wealth acquisition–a rigged playing field, a bought-off referee, and an Elite that’s above the law by every practical measure–dominates the economy and the political structure, the Social Contract has been shattered, regardless of how much welfare largesse is distributed to buy the complicity of state dependents…

    …The fantasy in America is that legitimate wealth creation is still possible despite the visible dominance of a corrupt, venal, self-absorbed, parasitic, predatory Aristocracy. Once that fantasy dies, so will the marks’ support of the Aristocracy…

    …In broad brush, we can trace the transition from feudalism to capitalism to the present financialized, globalized cartel-state neofeudalism and next, to a synthesis built on the opposite of neofeudalism, which is decentralization, transparency, accountability, legitimacy and the adaptive churn of competing ideas and proposals.” ~ Charles Hugh Smith, ‘Of Two Minds’ blog

      The Three E’s

      …Which dovetails into my previous comments about ethics and equity…

      Do you want a society? A relatively permanent culture?

      Well then, you might want it relatively ethical/equitable/environmental, or it won’t likely last.

        You grow grain – which can be stored for a long time. It’s bank! And with such an account, you can survive the winter, when no man toileth and Nature herself, rests.

        Once you become adept at this system, you’ll find you have a surplus or margin above the survival level, with this you build Civilization.

        Gustaph reacts violently to this. He wants to go back to the Stone Age. Does he allow fire? If not, we’ll have to live in the tropics. Working in flint? Don’t know. Maybe he wants a Lord of the Flies type things, with mere sharpened sticks and of course “a stick sharpened at both ends”.

    Rather coincidental that all this state propaganda personality realignment occurred right before Biden announced his candidacy. Even more intriguing is how all players, privately of course, expressed their strong dislike of Trump in past statements.

    Assuredly, neither Rupert or Tucker really desired to assist Trump in the run-up despite any lack of enthusiasm for Biden.

    This all smells at first sniff of surreptitious convenience

    • JohnAZ April 26, 2023 at 10:30 am #

      Last night, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly and Megan Kelly agreed that the end of Tucker may be the end of Trump, and MAGA with him. Fox got Trump elected in 2016, without its support, he is toast.

      Fellow MAGAites, it is just about over. OAN and NewsMax are next.

    • MaryQueen April 26, 2023 at 11:48 am #

      Great point about the timing.

      No doubt Tucker would have had something interesting to say about Jo Jo Magoo’s campaign announcement – lol.

      I am with Michael Rectenwald – this has to do with Blackrock taking more control of Fox.

    • Paddys Lament April 26, 2023 at 3:55 pm #

      I have no idea what played out behind the curtains at Fox news. But one thing is certain, Tucker had long since left the reservation and his public airing of “inconvenient truths” were piling up to the point where they could no longer be tolerated.

      • Mike Sherman April 26, 2023 at 8:09 pm #

        Yes. I suspect that among those no longer tolerating it would have been the major sponsors who no longer wish to be associated with a crazy, misogynistic motherfucker like Carlson.

        As well, the shareholders & the Murdoch Mob can see the writing on the wall with regard to the slew of lawsuits still to be dealt with, especially Abby Grossman’s because she has the receipts, and the embarrassment would just be too great.

        Firing Carlson won’t save Fox from these impending legal and financial disasters, but it may serve to mitigate the impact somewhat.

    When does the much anticipated Ukrainian Spring Offensive begin? Here we are over a month into spring, no offensive yet. I’m beginning to think there will not be a Spring Offensive, it’s a lot of bullsh#t designed to keep the schwag flowing from DC until the whole enterprise collapses & Zelensky is forced to flee Kiev as Russian troops cross the Dneiper & advance on the Capital ~ with Z, his family and a few trusted lackeys hurriedly boarding US aircraft with suitcases stuffed with cash, headed for Miami Beach, but described by US media as a strategic retreat and moral victory. And that’s the last we’ll hear of Zelensky, the Ukraine War, & the estimated $200 billion the US dumped there over a period of 18 months.

    I notice a few Ukrainian flags still hanging off houses around here, looking tattered & faded after 15 months, as if people haven’t gotten around to removing them yet.

    • JohnAZ April 26, 2023 at 10:26 am #

      It is a measure of the stupidity of the American public that they have signed up to the Biden Mob re Ukraine. Biden has used it to destroy most of the respect the world has of the American military.

      Think of it from a worldly aspect. Here is the United States, again using others to fight their battles after causing the blow up in the first place.

      Sort of like getting caught with our hands in the cookie jar.

      BRICS++ has had enough, the world is about to reject the USA.

    • TPTB-USA April 26, 2023 at 10:27 am #

      I recall that MacGregor stuck his head in the noose, and claimed that Russia would see to it that Zelensky is taken out.

    How is it that fifty-one “folks” (“JB” called them) from the Intel Community can admit that they were wrong, and no one suffers any consequence?

    Who is a person of authority to advocate for the population? Would this be a President? Garland? The Supreme Court? Congress? The Senate?

    Who is incompetent and not doing their job?

    • MaryQueen April 26, 2023 at 9:34 am #

      There has been no accountability at that level for 20+ years now, excepting a few low-level scapegoats here and there.

            Oh wait – how could I forget this – a few of these would be forced to star in Blackbird’s “Dictator Zoo.”

            Top picks would include the Clintons, Obamas & Bidens, the Bushes and Victoria Nuland, SUsan Rice and a few others that would spice things up.

      The authority to advocate for the population lies in the election process. If the government becomes a mob, the populace votes them out.

      Wait, what happens if the elections become useless as a control on the government, for many reasons.

      Demographics, manipulation of the balloting process, PACs, Dark money, idiotic TV ads, a totally biased media, a social media run by Deep State operatives, growth of the unreactive bureaucracy, educational indoctrination, capitalistic monopolization of the leading economic institutions, and inter partisan breakdown are a few causes

      What you are seeing is the consequence of the presence of the Deep State being uniparty, no need for balance of power, a single group running the government with a growing schism between said government and half the population. The symptom of this is the lack of fear by people in the government to judicial or electoral review. They do whatever they want knowing the system will exonerate them.

      Incompetence, no way. It is 100% planned and executed by folks with no fear of recrimination. You may hate folks like Pelosi or Schumer but they are very successful politicians as the liberalization of the House and Senate attests. The future is bleak, too, as there is no one who is willing to put their reputation on the line to contest this drive towards totalitarianism.

      Right now, none of the institutions you mentioned will stop the centralization of power. Everything the Deep State is doing is designed to chip away at the representative model. The final control, the vote, is just about canceled out as a change agent.

      Of the institutions mentioned, Trump thought his legacy of a conservative SC would be a change agent. Ha, they are voting straight Deep State. So right now, there is very little contra government influence in DC.

      The only contra person was cancelled out by the Deep State, attacked on all sides, and is in process of being destroyed as he is still recognized by the Deep State as their number one nemesis. The lack of voting control is no more evidenced that the demise of this individual. A yuge question, why is he the only person with enough cojones to take on the Deep State? He is the only one of consequence, hence the target on his back. this electorate does not deserve his sacrifices.

      Also, the total collapse of American integrity and power has happened over the last 21/2 years and the Deep State just plugs along with no fear. Plausible deniability has been abandoned, no need. Every Mob action is out in the open now. No fear!!!

      A good example of this? Biden declared yesterday that the no. 1 enemy is the MAGA group, with no fear of saying it. HRC called us Deplorables and paid a severe price for saying so. Biden’s lack of fear is disturbing.

      Bottom line, this was a representative republic. The totalitarian group attacked it by changing the electorate by stupidification, immigration and educational indoctrination. The damage to the Constitution is permanent now, MAGA crying is inconsequential.

      A final blow may be in the works. The debt ceiling needs to be raised and the GOP has a chance to exert change by shutting down the government to slow the increase in inflationary spending. Biden beats Mc Carthy and any effect of the 2022 elections is gone.

      Wonder what the odds are in Vegas?

      • TPTB-USA April 26, 2023 at 11:06 am #

        I’d like to think that “the buck stops here” with the president, and if that individual does not represent the population, then that individual is committing treason.

        Who has the authority to deal with treason? Is that where Jordan and Comer are heading?

        If Trump had a 2016 do-over, knowing what he knows now, do you think he could/would have taken-out the deep state? Or, is the system so bastardized that there is no way to do it?

        Seems that all that is transpiring in the US, justifies individuals like Putin being classified as a thug. In an uncivilized environment, only a thug can deal with the opposition.

        • TPTB-USA April 26, 2023 at 4:19 pm #

          … “represent the population” by setting a moral example, and upholding the rule of law.

          If the republic has been gamed to extinction, then we should be gearing-up for divorce. That being said, the Left doesn’t want a divorce, they want everyone to participate in their utopia.

        A government that is for everyone is for no one. The Founders were for themselves, their own group, Whites of Western European culture.

        Limitation is a part of any creation. Any republic that opens its doors to everyone is just a Tower of Babel in the making.

        • JohnAZ April 26, 2023 at 1:47 pm #

          Good point, Jarek.

          The Tower of Babel is an expose of the fact that when too many humans get together,

          Familiarity breeds contempt.

          Maybe this is what is happening in the country right now. Was God repudiating the basis of the Left, that diversity is good. God split the world into segments using language as the tool. Science would say that when groups grew too large, including families, part of the group left. War was a common method to decide who leaves. Language developed to keep the groups separated.

          To me, diversity breeds contempt.

          When the country was founded, it was exclusively White European with some Black slaves. Hence the government was designed for Europeans that wanted no more monarchy.

          Diversity is the enemy of a society’s cohesion. Diversity creates a society that is split, each group petitioning the central government for capital and resources. Inferior groups do their damndest to disrupt normality and destroy common cultures as they jockey for power.

          Diversity is NOT, “Wow, I can go to a Mexican restaurant.” Diversity divides, it does not create union. Biden is so wrong in saying he makes the country unified by encouraging diversity.

          When the DS succeeded in blocking the border control, the eventual Balkanization of the country was assured. Just a matter of time.
