      “Joe Biden’s” victory dance in South Carolina — down on the ol’ Democratic Party Plantation, where they grows votes — didn’t last long. By Sunday, a rogue satellite named Tucker Carlson was spotted orbiting over Russia, Russia, Russia, a country you have to say three times so that people get how serious it is. Carlson threatens to actually sit down in the same room with Putin, Putin, Putin — the antithesis of “Joe Biden,” since Putin actually operates as head-of-state — and convey Mr. P’s thoughts and opinions to the citizens of America via the rascally social media platform called “X.”

      Do you realize the danger of exposing Americans to what this Putin might say? Hearing him express his thoughts about the world situation in a leisurely format — which Putin does regularly among his own people (I’ve seen him do it!) — is liable to inform Americans that their own political leadership is a party of mental illness.

     Even without this new provocation of a Carlson / Putin colloquy, folks in the land of the free and the home of the brave have begun to grok just how insane things have gone under “Joe Biden” blobism. And that darn conversation comes just egg-zackly at the moment when our Senate is attempting to package a bill tying a $60-billion taxpayer gift to Ukraine with a “border security” law that will forbid more than 8,500 foreigners on any given day to enter the USA illegally. Sweet deal, huh? Er. . . maybe not. On the House side of Congress, Speaker Mike Johnson says, “No way, José.”

     So, do you really want to chance this Putin guy actually explaining calmly and clearly to folks here how our own State Department cooked up this war in Ukraine, and keeps it going month after month? Figures such as the ex-conservative Bill Kristol (now blob cheerleader), want to prevent the Tucker Carlson satellite from re-entering the USA after its Moscow visit. Mr. Kristol is apparently under the illusion that we are at war with Russia. Somebody please inform him that this is just not so. Strictly speaking, Russia is just another European nation that Americans can visit on a visa. That’s a fact, Jack. And if you happen to be there, and you’re a journalist, and Putin, Putin, Putin agrees to an interview, well. . . you sit down and talk to the guy. . . and record it. . . and let people around the world decide what to think about it.

I don’t know about you, but that sounds a little. . . I dunno. . . fascist-y to me. Which is the dirty secret of the Party of Mental Illness that folks in the USA are beginning to grok. All their blather about “our democracy” is a smokescreen for the lust to shutdown free speech at all costs and push everybody around. It will be interesting to see who shows up at the jetway when Mr. Carlson actually does land back in America. The FBI, you think? With a set of leg-irons (like they did with Peter Navarro)?

     Mr. Putin might also explain how immigration works in Russia, Russia, Russia, where you have to fill out an application, explain who you are, and be evaluated as worthy to enter. Not everybody makes the grade. But, surprise, surprise, surprise, not everybody seeks to enter a country with good intentions. Can you imagine that? The Party of Mental illness in America does not believe that anyone can have less than good intentions. At least that’s what they pretend (because they are mentally ill). So, anyone at all can drift across the Mexican border into the USA. They call that “diversity and inclusion.” It’s a thought problem.

    We are letting a lot of people with probably less than good intentions into our country. The home folks are getting a bit riled up about it. The home folks are certainly not falling for Nikki Haley’s bullshit. Nikki Haley is trying to out-Biden “Joe Biden.” She appeared the other night as the featured guest-star on the blob’s comedy show, Saturday Night Live, doing her impression of a mentally ill presidential candidate. Nikki excels at that. She is represented by the blob’s CIA talent agency. The same agency handles the vote tabulation machines around the USA, so let’s see how Nikki does in the South Carolina Republican primary on February 24. “Joe Biden” got 97 percent of the vote there last week. Stunning and awesome! Can Nikki beat that?

          The Zephyrs of spring are hardly nascent and even in the cruel depths of winter we are beginning to see an uprising stir throughout Western Civ. The farmers have had enough of being pushed around, overtaxed, and blustered and have taken the lead in disrupting the bad intentions of the Euroblob. The American truck convoy is headed to Texas to assist the Texans in controlling the border that the USAblob refuses to control. The court cases against Mr. Trump are wobbling like $1.99 gyroscopes. And who was not horrified by the act that E. Jean Carroll put on with Rachel Maddow on MSNBC? There is your political mental illness in a neat snapshot. Do you really want your country to be like that?

    Two big issues that the managerial class want to sweep under are immigration and the fallout from COVID. Either of these issues could blow up the political consensus, together we could see a complete realignment of the political landscape. Between now and November will be an interesting time

    • JohnAZ February 5, 2024 at 10:14 am #

      Covid?

      Get over it. No one is paying attention any more. The nation is divided, 15% will do whatever the government says, regardless of their own common sense about their risk status. They are hidebound Democrats that believe the government about anything and may be taking the boosters just to show us. These are people that are insane with complacency, that want the USA government to do their thinking for them and take care of them.

      Dumb.

      Some hope that Covid will be an issue. Nope. Remember that Trump bought off on Pence-Fauci-Birx in 2020. It will be a non-issue.

        Greetings,

        I am the black sheep of the family – a family of professionals. No one I’m related to would be caught dead reading CFN let alone listen to Alex Jones or O’Keefe. I’m the outlier.

        Last week when we buried my mother (killed by Ozempic), all of my family members were violently ill with this year’s version of Covied – I should say all but myself and my gal who are vax-free. We didn’t get sick and are still not sick.

        Everyone joked that they were sick because of the vax. Not a one of them has taken the booster. All of them regret having fallen for the lie. The normies are waking up and they are mad but not sure what to do about it.

        I should also mention that deaths and turbo cancers are running wild through our extended family. It is becoming hard for the normies to ignore.

        • RD3 February 5, 2024 at 10:40 am #

          My condolences on the loss of your mother.

          My buddy’s wife, who was not heavy to begin with, started taking Ozempic recently. I just saw her yesterday and she does not look well. She has lost weight, but it wasn’t good weight.

          • NickelthroweR February 5, 2024 at 11:01 am #

            Ozempic is something that should only be taken as a last resort and it should not be handed out like candy as is being done. My daughter tells me that half of the employees at the grocery store she manages are taking it.

            That a doctor would give this to a 76 year old woman who wanted to lose 10lbs is just criminal. It blocked up her intestines and she had to have a length of them removed which was botched and put her in the hospital for 3 months.

            A side effect of Ozempic is that a person may forever lose the desire to eat as happened to my mother. She starved to death and weighed around 80lbs at the time of her death.

            It was pure torture for all involved.

          • Beryl of Oyl February 5, 2024 at 11:24 am #

            Instead of researching why so many Americans are finding it so hard to lose weight and keep it off, we spend our tax dollars on research on how to make bat diseases more dangerous to humans.

        • Beryl of Oyl February 5, 2024 at 10:47 am #

          Sorry about your mom.

          • NickelthroweR February 5, 2024 at 11:03 am #

            Thanks. I only brought it up because it was recent and I was able to see extended family.

            We intentionally did an open casket viewing so everyone could see what big pharma did to her. People were shocked.

          • beantownbill. February 5, 2024 at 12:43 pm #

            I was. Now I have no immediate family. My niece is cool – she’s got a good head on her shoulders, and agrees with me on just about everything. Her brother, my nephew, is a real lib. He was shocked when I told him I’d rather have Trump in office than the walking corpse we now have. I knew he was liberal, but I never realized he suffered from TDS. Oh, well, one out of four ain’t too bad. My grand daughters’ father is smart about the way things really are, he’s anti-lib, too.

            All in all, for a former black sheep, I’d say I’m lucky.

          • Anthea February 5, 2024 at 9:28 pm #

            I guess I used to be the black sheep of the family–for forty or fifty years. Not that it’s of any consequence. I have had my own family for about forty years, my parents are both gone, and my two siblings haven’t been a part of my life for twenty or thirty years. It’s been so long since I’ve had any contact with either of them that I didn’t even get to see them lose their minds over covid–which I’m pretty sure they did, as they are both arch-liberals. Of course I don’t wish them any ill. I just wish them far away from me.

            It’s not at all a lonely place. I’m the grandmother in quite a large family, with relatives running out my ears, along with an adequate number of friends. They don’t all agree with me about everything, but they don’t have to.

          • Grandpa February 6, 2024 at 2:31 pm #

            from one black sheep to another, Nickel; condolences and prayer.
            Ever notice that despite being the black sheep, when shit goes sideways in the wee hours of the morning, your phone rings?

        • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 11:09 am #

          Nickel, is Ozempic the drug that slows down the processes of the stomach? I’ve heard horrific things about that.

          So sorry about your loss. I lost my father 19 years ago at the hands of the medical establishment. It’s a pain that never goes away.

            Yup, that is the drug. The side effects are just terrible plus it is a drug that one must take for the remainder of their lives . . . . or else.

        • JackStraw February 5, 2024 at 1:01 pm #

          Another black sheep here. All my brothers are TDS suffering leftist idiots, despite all being highly educated.

          As for the vax, I lost an old friend to cancer last year, another dear friend is now going through stomach cancer, my wife is dealing with strange intestinal issues, and I have Leukemia, where the symptoms showed up shortly after getting the vax, which I was forced to get by my employer. Now I’m out of work and living the chemo life.

          • silas_sings February 5, 2024 at 1:20 pm #

            leftist idiots BECAUSE they are “highly educated.” fixed it for ya.

          • C.O.Jones February 5, 2024 at 1:28 pm #

            @JackStraw – sorry to hear about the chemo life! I told a surgeon years ago “if you can’t cure it with a knife, never mind” but that was not leukemia.

            When my mom asked me about the shot, I advised her not to get it and my brother put up an argument based on the fact that he always gets the flu shot.

            My mom died from a hemorrhagic stroke not long after that conversation and I do not know if she got the death shot or not. My brother died 21 days after taking the death shot. When I called a mutual friend of my brother’s and mine to tell him, my friend said he had an appointment to get the shot the following day. I urged him not to and he said he “just wanted to be safe.”

            My ex wife called a week later to let me know my friend had died suddenly. My ex then called again a few weeks later to let me know the long-time drummer in my band had developed a turbo cancer and died. 6 months from I feel fine to shot and stage 4 esophageal cancer.

            If nobody is held accountable, we are done as a society, indeed done as a planet. Just yesterday I found a resource diagramming how 5G is involved with Pfizer. Shot takers are primed for the next go-round.

            Good luck with the chemo – I will say a prayer for you.

            AML Leuikemia here as well. Cancer free now due to stem cell transplant. Im retired military so been vaxed up but refused the clot shot. Now Im trying to figure out if any of the 24 blood transfusions were vaxxed. When I asked mof f itt about it they said “We dont ask the donors”. Yet when I stepped on a big red bus and asked the question they said “of course we ask vaxed status” hmmmmm. The VA spent millions to save my life then let that evil crap into my transfusion. Now its time to figure out what test I need to see if I have the spike protien, luciferaise, graphine oxide, nanolipids, etc!! God bless and be safe all.

        • Night Owl February 5, 2024 at 4:51 pm #

          “Everyone joked that they were sick because of the vax. Not a one of them has taken the booster. All of them regret having fallen for the lie. The normies are waking up and they are mad but not sure what to do about it.”

          There is nothing they can do about it. A select group of individuals (Zelenko, Yeadon, Bhakdi) pointed this out at the start.

          Anyone that took this stuff and did not get a placebo really has no recourse but to accept that they have curtailed their time on this earth.

          I don’t think anything is going to happen to the perpetrators. A parallel society of sorts will have to come together, but this is too big to turn around in 5-10 years. The people who planned the Great Reset started a long, long time ago.

        • Wizard of the Saddle February 5, 2024 at 5:04 pm #

          So sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I just had a long discussion about OZEMPIC with my own mother yesterday. I secretly suspect that she wants to use it to lose weight but I told her what it does to people and urged her to just go on the Carnivore Diet like I have and her weight problem will be history and her metabolic health will be restored. Too many people want a quick fix with dope from Big Pharma. SAD!

          • Richard Bergenboyle February 8, 2024 at 7:19 pm #

            Five old friends had a rock band in the 60’s. We had a reunion at 71. We discussed the “shot”. Three took it. The bass player and I did not. They remain mostly healthy.

            One of my old friends said all he wanted was for a doctor to give him a pill to “cure” him. He didn’t want to do his own research.

            The bass player and I are holding our breath, hoping they don’t succumb to some dreadful disease.

      • loosethedogs February 5, 2024 at 12:36 pm #

    Good morning Jim, and thank you.

    Pres. Putin is the most thoughtful, serious, erudite, and able Russian leader in decades.

    Comparing Putin & Biden isn’t even similar. It isn’t apples or oranges. It’s more like race cars & ice cream cones (you can guess which one is the ice cream).

    Putin has a vision for Russia which will last hopefully for this next century.

    Biden is little man, myopic, craven, and greedy. Biden is overseeing the decline of the American empire. The end of the Pax Americana.

    What will come next?

    I’m not sure exactly. But the sun always rises, and the winds always come around again.

    • DyersEve February 5, 2024 at 9:25 am #

      Agreed – just watch Oliver Stone’s interviews with Putin back in 2016 on Showtime I think. Brilliant man. And he loves his country, its history, and its potential. Protects it. He’s everything America actually deserves but never seems to get. Why? Maybe it’s us. Maybe We The People simply don’t deserve divine providential outcomes at this point. I dunno. We haven’t suffered enough maybe. We will though if this shit doesn’t get straightened out and quick.

        • Ron Anselmo February 5, 2024 at 3:49 pm #

          RD3 – off topic now, but thanks for the catch on Curtis Loew – a little humor, very little, on my part, but I appreciated the background on Shorty Medlocke. Being a 4th generation Floridian, and lifelong fan of the band, there’s not much I don’t know about them.

          In the old days, I used to make the annual pilgrimage on 10/20, to Evergreen Cemetary where Ronnie and Steve & Cassie Gaines were buried. Hundreds upon hundreds would go, the crowd becoming too large, and the graves were eventually moved.

          There are still quite a few Van Zants in NE Florida – the Greater Jacksonville area. The house where Ronnie, Donnie & Johnny grew up, was in an area in West Jacksonville, referred to as Shantytown back then. It sold not too long ago and is now marketed as an AirBnB – The Lynyrd Skynyrd Experience – and decorated with all sorts of memorabilia.

          Ronnie was of course a local legend and favorite son – the band as well – as the standard-bearers of Southern Rock. He was prescient (I’ll never make it to 30, the plane went down when he was 29), about a lot of things and many locals say, a prophet.

          He was a gifted and unique songwriter, in that every single song reflected an actual lived experience. They were stories and each song shared lessons learned from experiences – both good and bad.

          Artimus Pyle used to live a few blocks away, and I’d see him from time to time, but he’s moved on to Asheville, NC. His daughter – aptly named Pepper – still lives close by. She’s an artist, surfer and local environmental activist. She’s loud and rebellious about the things she cares about – Pepper suites her – Pepper Pyle.

          • RD3 February 5, 2024 at 3:59 pm #

            Thanks for this. Ronnie was a very interesting guy. He never wrote down a single lyric to any of his songs. He kept it all in his head.

          • RD3 February 5, 2024 at 4:01 pm #

            I think Johnny does a pretty good job fronting the band in his brother’s absence, but new music died with the plane crash.

      • Socrates-Detroit February 5, 2024 at 9:46 am #

        Agreed–Putin is the most adept global leader of my lifetime (I was born during the LBJ administration).

        I have seen clips of Putin speak. His equivalent of their annual state of the union, which runs for hours, he takes questions, and the breadth and depth of his answers is very impressive, in terms of content and delivery.

        The only US President I can think of that came close was JFK (from some old clips I’ve seen of him).

        I have the impression that Putin was trained as a lawyer. His actions in the 2000s thru 2010s show that he appeared to have wanted Russia to be closer to or join the West. He was rebuffed.

        Rebuffed by the US/West or not, Putin took the Russia from the depths of their depression (brought about by the implosion of the USSR), where desperation was rampant and men’s life expectancy had dropped to SIXTY (BTW, Americans’ life expectancy is dropping too, most markedly among white males, the backbone of this country), and turned it around.

        So while I didn’t see Oliver Stone’s interviews with Putin, but I’m sure they were interesting.

        However, I have seen Oliver Stone’s documentary “Ukraine on Fire”. This 90-minute film was completed around 2015 or 2016, and focuses on events leading up to the “Maidan Revolution” (the US-organized coup that overthrew the elected President Victor Yanukovych) and the coup itself. Stone interviews several of the principals.

        It’s Ukraine 101. Well worth watching for those of you who are interested in some good history. You can watch it for free on rumble

          Russia’s depression was only partly brought about by the implosion of the USSR. The real damage was done when Jeffrey Sachs and his crew pillaged a fragile, broken country. Putin ejecting the Tribe from Russia is why they hate him with a seething passion and will stop at noting to see him marginalized and not accepted on the world’s stage.

            most of Americans are stupid pawns of the media, Hollywood and (so-called) higher education in this country. They render us outliers. Ive been around a long time and this part of American history is startling, scary and quite possibly the beginning of the end.

          @ Uncle Abraham:

          Speaking of Putin as “confederate with murderers and crminals” is, I think, frivolous. Putin was (and is) going about the business of freeing Russia from the toils of immensely powerful oligarchs and banking interests that were looting the country. If you want to be successful about this, being Mr. Nice Guy is not one of your options, as, for one thing, your opponents would as soon kill you as look at you. Such situations are a form of war.

          If your goal is to rid your nation of looters–looters with immense resources and a lot of willing foot-soldiers (NGOs, etc.), you can probably see that using the judiciary system would avail you very little. We are experiencing this problem here in the US. You would thus choose extra-judicial methods–unless you just wanted to lose.

          Sure, it’s unfortunate to have to resort of extra-judicial methods, but, without a rule of law, you have not alternative. And maybe not all of Putin’s confederates in this effort were nice people. That too goes with the territory.

          To characterize Putin or anyone else involved in such a conflict at “thugs” or “not nice” or something is just silly.

        Yet he conflates his country, Russia, with dreams of empire, the Russian Federation. Thus he has enabled millions of Muslims to live and work in the Moscow area alone. How is this loving his nation and people?

        He does I think, but he is obsessed with rebuilding the Empire more. The same mistake we made in the West. It is doomed to fail. The signs are already there – and he hates people who remind him of this, like Russian White Nationalists. The Muslims may behave as long as Russians are stronger, but wait until the Opposition gets in.

    Interesting new post, although I wish your blogs were a little longer. I enjoy reading them quite a lot, sometimes I’ll read them more than once. I was a regular over on Paul Craig Roberts platform and reading his blogs too…But he seems to have a lot less hope than you do. A lot of his blogs are extremely black pilled too like “it’s over, we lost!”

    Truthseeker– Obviously I’m not Paul Craig Roberts, so stick with me. You’ll at least get some laughs. Remember what wise, old Samuel Beckett said: “Nothing is funnier than unhappiness.” — JHK-Admin

    And I hardly find a single blog that makes me feel optimistic from him. Not saying that he’s wrong when he speaks out how bad everything is. But I still prefer reading the blogs here more. It’s good to see people are fighting back. But I wonder what all of this is going to do in the end. America is losing a lot of power it seems. I already knew that Putin honestly had no interest in fighting America, it’s the bastards in DC and Deep State itself trying to turn Putin into their enemy.

California can no longer enforce that it must proceed through a California Federal Firearms license holder with attendant brutal fees and punitive background checks record-keeping (11% of applicants being auto-rejected in 2023, 58,087 people).

    If you reside in California you may now buy what you want, as much as you want, from whom you want located anywhere, UPS Ground, and delivered to your door without interdiction. Remember to pay California sales tax on it. “8^>).

      • TruthSeeker1986 February 5, 2024 at 12:00 pm #

        I don’t even own television anymore, when I want to watch something I go to a “free” streaming site and just watch everything that way. I’m not paying to support the likes of Netflix or some other big production corporation. I can’t even stand seeing these woke movie posters or tv series they have that often get advertised on their front covers.

        But I know what you mean, I’ve seen Youtube doing it too. They tried to disable the Adblockers and instead want people to pay for a premium. The last time I used youtube without an ad blocker I sorely regretted it. But I have noticed the change in television…I just can’t for the life of me figure out why do White males even put up with this at all. This is why I honestly miss the early 80s, 90s, and early 2000s…The Left has taken a shit all over Western Civilization.

          It isn’t the left per se.

          The system has simply copted leftist language in order to take over.

          I remember the idocy present in the US after 9/11. Not long after, I moved to Europe–partially because living in the DC area was almost unbearable.

          The lefties think their people are delivering justice in the face of the acts perpetrated by the evil right during the Bush era.

          In Europe it works the same way. There were stolen elections here in Germany and now the governing leftists are trying to literally outlaw the opposition. And they themselves have gone full corporatist, hiding behind the figleaves of inclusion and environmentalism.

          What I never understood is why are they so obsessed with blacks in the first place. Why are blacks so important that they are put above white people all of a sudden?

          I don’t think anyone has ever explained this in thorough enough detail as to why the left is promoting all of this. Plus a majority of blacks don’t even give a shit about Black History Month. It’s mostly just the Pro-Black types, but not all black people are pro-black. That’s why they don’t have a problem being the only ethnicity in America that kill off their own for any reason. Hell Blacks in America strongly hate Blacks from Africa, and Blacks in Africa feel the same way toward blacks in America. They both equally hate each other.

          And the first chance they get to fight it out. They definitely will because blacks in America don’t intend on sharing a damn thing with them. On top of it all, they can’t even stand living among each other. That’s why whenever they make enough money or become wealthy enough they avoid living anywhere near other blacks. And forget about them using their wealth to improve their own communities because they are too selfish to even do that.

            Joe Biden to Black leaders (this really happened): The Whites are finished. You all are going to have to learn to get along with the Hispanics.

            Well, what is this but the simple Truth? The Elite have made their decision. And yeah, they don’t like us at all. We’re “Rome”, “Amalek”, “Esau”, etc. The White Elite are on board, being tutored in the schools of Masonry and general snobbery.

            It’s no mystery what happened. We were overthrown by the Tribe, a real band of brothers. Our native Elite were cut in and were happy to sell us out.

          • Blackbird February 5, 2024 at 6:33 pm #

            Truth, it’s not really about raising up the blacks, it’s about crushing the whites. Black lives only matter when they have ended. Raise blacks (or anyone else) above their level of competence (through “DEI”) and they will bring the whole damned house crashing down through incompetence – as well as earning the wrath of the whites who have been cast aside in favor of blacks. That is the objective.

            Regarding the wasteland that is TV, I’m almost halfway through a 5 week exile in a hotel. I share my room with a TV – for the first time in 11 years. It does nothing but remind me what an intentionally fucked-up country we live in. Even worse, is the evidence all around me that a critical mass of the population – from uneducated to overeducated – have swallowed the propaganda, and stand in line eagerly, bowl in hand, waiting for more.

            If I were one to give advice, I’d suggest making an effort to build a self-sufficient life for yourself outside of the matrix, with a community of like-minded individuals – if you can find them. And arm yourself, physically, mentally, and spiritually, for what is coming. And don’t put your fist through any windows.

          • Anthea February 5, 2024 at 9:53 pm #

            @ Blackbird:

            My suggestion is the same as yours: building a life that enables a high degree of self-sufficiency in a community of like-minded people.

            I think this is still possible in my area, even for a person of pretty modest means. It’s still possible to buy a cheap house, for example–though it may not need a lot of work. Even if you don’t have enough land for food self-sufficiency, you’ll be okay if you have skills–and a community that trusts you and respects you.

            Too many people think this is not achievable. It is. You just have to make the effort.

            If you can do this, you will have built a better life for yourself, whether TSHTF or not.

        @ Cankerpuss:

        If you could get a majority of the people in this country to put their TVs out at the curb and use their phones for making phone calls (okay–and messaging), it would probably revolutionize the country, culturally and politically.

        I’ve hardly watched TV since I graduated from high school in 1965. When I was single, I kept the TV someone had given me in the hall closet. My kids hardly watched TV at all when they were little, as we rarely had one that worked. We did have TV when they were teenagers, I’m embarrassed to admit, but I literally never sat down and watched a TV show with them–only rented movies. Even then, I was often too busy with something else (such as popping popcorn) to pay much attention to it.

        If people hate being immersed in this disgusting crap, they could just turn it off–and take a baseball bat to it.

        They could also turn off the radio in their cars. (Do people still listen to the radio in their cars?) My mom once told me that she was annoyed by teenagers playing crap music in her car, so she ripped out the wires. When the teenagers asked about the radio in her car, she told them it didn’t work.

        Listen to good music. Read good books. Watch good movies.

        In other words, absolutely shun the sewage the MSM spews into your home, and maybe your car.

    Kristol apparently is referring to the Trump “Muslim Ban” where he had the odd idea that maybe we shouldn’t have a revolving door for jihadist “refugees”.

    The president does have the right to ban entry to the country.

    Section 212(f) of the INA

    The provisions currently in Section 212(f)—which have been part of the INA since its enactment in 19525—state, in relevant part, that
    Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

    Robert’s has the same problem I had- a continual regurgitation of the same truths. It’s not that the topics aren’t true but after awhile there is simply nothing to add.

    JHK stays current on events and focuses on them- producing two predictable blogs each week in a timely fashion. I cannot tell you how difficult that is to do week after week but Jim does an admirable job.

        I can’t stand TheAmerican Thinker anymore….Too pro-Israel. I use to visit just to read the comments and sometimes the blogs but mostly just the comments. But right after Hamas attacked Israel in October…. It’s been all out “HOW DARE THEY ATTACK OUR GOD ISRAEL!” And it was like that with every goddamn post on there ever since that happened… And there were never any counter arguments about it either, because every single person leaving comments were all about defending Israel no matter what. If anyone did attempt to criticize they got gang raped off the platform by the Pro-Israel mob.

        I got sick of it and said “never again.” I couldn’t stand the hardcore shilling no more than a day before I switched over to Paul Craig Roberts. I still enjoy some of the stuff he writes even if he rarely sounds happy about the future at all, but I can understand why he feel the way he do.

          Concur on AT. Few days ago there was a commentary taking shots @ Col Douglas MacGregor as some sort of anti-Semite. Now I’ve watched him for quite a while & know him as being very friendly toward Israel as well as working with the IDF & still having many contacts in the IDF. So I read the column; simply because MacGregor thinks Israel has bitten off more than it can chew vis-a-vis Gaza & appears to really be stretching the limits of The Rules of War the author thinks he’s an anti-Semite. The subtext: criticizing Israel makes you an anti-Semite. That’s sheer idiocy. You have to be able to disagree with a position of an ally without being labeled with such an irresponsible, blanket statement.

          That’s the main criticism of AIPAC; disagree with them & they slander you. That’s neither fair nor responsible.

          • TruthSeeker1986 February 5, 2024 at 1:08 pm #

            Exactly, and they’ve been abusing that ever since the 1940s… Tough because it’s not working anymore, most people are starting to not care if they get called anti-semite.

It is unbelievable how many blobbers actually declared Tucker Carlson should be deported, not allowed back, jailed, etc. these people actually think they are Americans. speaking of such miscreants, It was Kristol’s buddy, Jonah Goldberg, that first crystalized my views of lefties in his book Liberal Fascism.

          Online gambling is the ruin of sports.

          That’s why we are seeing the games being played not on the field, but being determined by people we can’t even see.

          Like horse racing, for instance. When did we ever see a horse that didn’t cross the finish line first being declared the winner later on?

            And Pete Rose still isn’t in the Hall of Fame.

            Professional sports. What a joke. The Super Bowl is coming up. The winner? It’s already been decided. The refs will ignore blatant penalties or call penalties where penalties were never committed to make sure the bookies and the Swifties are happy with the outcome.

          • Blackbird February 5, 2024 at 6:44 pm #

            I think it was the 2019 Super Bowl where there was a delay-of-game penalty on the first play. I told woke commie frenemy – in who’s house I was watching the “game” – that in the future, the winner of the Super Bowl would be determined in court rather than on the field. He didn’t think that was funny, but then again, he takes his Kool-Aid through an intravenous drip.

      “pharma ads on TV aren’t for selling drugs but to BUY OFF the news media”

      Well I’ll be the first to admit I could lose a few lbs. I’m not giving up red velvet cake though. I’m going with the “Ozempic” drug the TV is plying me with. I’ll put up with the side effects :

      “large, hive-like swelling on the face, eyelids, lips, tongue, throat, hands, legs, feet, or sex organs are side effects listed.”

      Hey what under-endowed WHITE man wouldn’t want “large, hive-like swellings on his sex organs? Sounds like a win-win to me.

      • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 10:54 am #

        One of my co-workers has been using some kind of injection used by Type 2 diabetics to help her lose weight. When she injects herself she has violent vomiting sessions and serious nausea so she takes drugs for that. The problem is she still eats like a sweaty hog at the trough.

        Look, weight loss isn’t difficult. Eat less, move more. The problem with the drug she is taking is once she reaches her weight loss goals, she’ll stop taking the drug and the fat will come right back. These drugs, if people are going to use them, are required to be used for life or the weight comes back.

        I read about another weight loss drug that causes the stomach to slow down. In some people it slows down so much that after 6 hours of eating their stomachs are full and they can’t swallow. Boy, that sounds like something I’d like to experience.

        Nope. Lay off the fast food, don’t eat after 7 p.m. and move a little.

          • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 1:20 pm #

            You may be right Elysianfield. They put so many damned chemicals in processed food I wouldn’t be surprised if those foods are as addictive as heroin.

            However, I stand by my supposition above. People are fat because of the lifestyles they live.

            First of all, they spend too much time sitting on their asses watching TV while stuffing potato chips and ice cream into their gaping maws.

            Secondly, they drink sugar and chemical laden soda more than they drink good old fashioned earth juice (water). My co-workers are constantly chugging Coke and Pepsi.

            Third, fast food. The drive through aisles for McDonalds, Arby’s, Wendy’s and so forth are always busy here in my town.

            I lost 80 pounds 10 years ago by simply keeping track of my calories and I have never gained it back. I exercise daily. I don’t eat after 7. I don’t eat out more than once a month. I am 6 foot 2 and weigh 220 pounds. It really is that simple. It’s all about self control.

          • RD3 February 5, 2024 at 1:30 pm #

            My brother worked in food science for a mega-corporation. They have all sorts of internal research showing how addictive certain additives are, especially high fructose corn syrup. Supposedly, according to what he heard in the industry, McDonald’s had four scientists whose full time job it was to make the food more addictive.

            Sorry Canker but 6’2″ 220 lbs. is 28.2 BMI and borderline obese you fat shit. I’m also 6’3″ and 250 lbs. But I’m big boned so it’s OK.

            Cank, I agree. I’ve even had fat people (I can’t speak such cruel words in the outside world, thank Mr. K. we have freedom of speech here!) admit that it is their fault that they are fat – but not many.

            I have tried to explain metabolism to woke commie frenemy – all 5’9″, 275 lbs of him – but fortunately, he knows everything and just ignores me, and takes it as an insult if I persist. His triple bypass, broken back, diabetes, missing teeth, stroke, missing testicle, live-in ex-wife and grown sons, are evidence of his wisdom. As he says – I think he got this line from Black Panther – “If you believe in yourself, you can accomplish anything.” Ok…

          @Nickelthrower

          My condolences.

          I’ve seen Ozempic advertised.

          I’m listening to Tucker Carlson interview Kelly Means of Alpha med, a former Big Pharma type, about Ozempic.

          WOW!

          This drug, made by Novo Nordisk, is not legal in Europe.

          Novo Nordisk just became the most valuable company in Europe.

          All their growth is coming from the US.

          NN is paying the NAACP to say that it’s

          RACISTS TO NOT SUPPORT GOVERNMENT FUNDING FOR OZEMPIC.

          The NAACP is a registered lobbyist for NN.

          NN has given $30 million in direct grants to doctors who treat obesity.

          Ozempic is a “for life” regimen.

          You can’t make this stuff up. Total dysfunction. Total corruption.

          No wonder the US government and military are eager to help the Israelis slaughter the Gazan–it’s so profitable! So much money!!!

          @JohnAZ

          This may be an example of cartel capitalism, but it shows why pure laissez-faire is not viable. Greed IS a good motivator. But greed without scruples (and that’s what Wall Street is about) leads to abuse and concentration of wealth, at the expense of most people. Not everyone is honest and scrupulous, something many well-meaning “conservatives” seem to be unable to grasp.

          80% of US adults–biggest drug target in US history. American Pediatrics recommend this drug as a first line of defense for… teens.

          Big Pharma–just one more cancer afflicting the American Body Politic (pun intended).

          Here is the link to the Ozempic interview….SICKENING!!!

          “We are a sick, depressed, infertile population”… best line in the interview. How sad.

          (but again, it’s all relative. Taking Ozempic is not as hazardous as living in Gaza. And the US government is behind both).

      Beryl – I watched that same interview on YT a few days back. Very sinister doings at Big Pharma, but we all knew that anyway. It’s just great to hear the gory details from insiders who have become whistle blowers. His comments on OZEMPIC for weight loss were very revealing. Millions are being conned with that crap to “lose weight” and they will suffer for it.

      It is indeed an interesting point. We’re not (officially) at war with Russia, so I doubt they could come up with any legal pretext for arresting him; it would be an open admission that they’ve gone rogue and simply discarded all legal precedent. If they attempt it, I think there would be unforeseen consequences.

      The Left has been trying to remove Tucker from the chess table for some time now. They thought they had won when FOX fired him, but now Tucker “Unchained” is their greatest nemesis – LOL – and his new independent media (TCN) network is doing groundbreaking journalism.

        RD, Andy didn’t die from AIDS. He was shot by a crazy woman who later went on to form the organization S.C.U.M. (Society To Cut Up Men) Her delusion was that Warhol plagiarized some deranged movie script she had written, which wasn’t true.

        Warhol also fell in with a quack chiropractor which prevented him from getting the professional medical care he needed to keep him alive. He died at the relatively young age of 59, ultimately from a ruptured gallbladder bladder.

        Say what you want about Andy Warhol but as an inspired artist he was the real deal.

        • RD3 February 5, 2024 at 5:14 pm #

          Andy Warhol hated Pittsburgh and never tired of saying bad things about it. I’m from (near) Pittsburgh, so, naturally I detest him. There is much speculation that he actually died from AIDS. Given his proclivities and the era, it would be surprising if he didn’t have AIDS.

        I read a comment the day she was awarded the money. The writer, a woman, stated she had herself been raped, and that neither she nor anyone else she knew who’d been raped had ever laughed or joked about it or a verdict in any way. Said E. Jean was a fraud. I have never been raped but I know people (including men) who have been, and it’s true that not one of them have ever laughed or joked about it, much less carried on like E. Jean did on Rachel Maddow. And Rachel’s jocularity was pretty off-putting, too.

        Indelicate question: Anyone know anyone’s who was raped who might have expressed an opinion about how E. Jean (and Rachel) behaved over the money?

    @TruthSeeker, If you’re in search of additional reading that’s humorous, upbeat, and often prescient, you might check out Jeff Childers’ Coffee and Covid on substack. He’s a lawyer and tends to look at things from that perspective, so he often ignores what others think are significant developments and concentrates on the legal issues – which turn out, in the end, to have more weight. He writes every day except Sunday, and is always worth reading. There’s not much out there that I recommend, since I prefer to receive news that’s well written, humorous, and without a side dish of “give up, it’s hopeless.”

    • TruthSeeker1986 February 5, 2024 at 10:46 am #

      I can understand why Paul feel the way he does about these things. I mean the Left have all this damn power and you have no one trying to even remotely stop them or so it seems to be the case in many situations.

      He also calls out a lot of things that others normally are afraid to call out. So I still respect Paul for mentioning a lot of things that I feel are important. It just that after awhile I started to feel disappointed and a bit hopeless myself. He never mentioned that there people at least trying to fight back.

        In Syria, the US is occupying 30% of the country, the part with the oil and the agricultural land.

        The US is stealing their oil and their wheat, while Syrians go hungry and cold. They also have a blockade on them, which they refused to lift even after the earthquake.

        You will never hear that mentioned in the media, or by the people out demonstrating against Israel for the crime of “occupation” and blockade.

        • Ron Anselmo February 5, 2024 at 2:46 pm #

          Beth – you’re exactly right. It’s as simple as this: At scale, those that have oil will eat, and those without oil will go hungry.

          September 11th was simply a pretext to put our footprint in the Middle East for the oil. Problem-Reaction-Solution.

          A simple explanation of the need for oil to the American people would likely have resulted in the same decision – without the subterfuge of murdering 3K plus innocent Americans as a pretext.

          Point is honesty would likely have yielded support for the reach for oil – stealing it as such – but seems that in the US, honesty is never the best policy.

    Bill Kristol and Rachel Maddow had a love child, they named it Taylor Swift. They changed the name of Super Bowl 2024 to the Swift Bowl.

    I’m sure at half time we’ll be treated to a bonanza of twerking, devil worship and Taylor Swift French kissing someone or other.

    The Swift Bowl held in Las Vegas this year. I’m sure the bookies already know the winner. The house always wins and it’s futile to resist the Borg. Go 49ers.

    • JohnAZ February 5, 2024 at 10:41 am #

      Yep.

      Two comments.

      One, Bill Kristal and the RINO gang are worse than the Dems. They are traitors to the country. The Dems believe in their cause of tearing down the country in their”Dark” adventure. They are the enemy that we know, insane and prevalent right now. The RINOs are evil, betraying the people in their battle with the Deep State. They are the most fervent members of the Deep State, joining the Dems whenever a question of Federal control happens. That is why The RINO infested Senate just passed out a Border bill that is pure Uniparty and kowtowing to the Mob. Johnson said already that it is worse than he thought and it is Dead on Arrival and will never see the floor of the House.

      Good! Kristal, go to hell. You too George Conway.

      • JohnAZ February 5, 2024 at 10:48 am #

        Oops.

        Two

        We went through, Truthseeker, 50 years of USA vs. USSR with MAD finally controlling the PTB.

        It was the “Democratic Champion” USA against the dirty communist USSR.

        Wha’ happened?

        Today it is reversed, it is the Communist trending USA against a fascist trending Russia. The Russian leader is competent, the USA is led by a demented nincompoop.

        In the meantime, East Asia is leading the pack.

        I was livid when I finally heard the details of Chuckie Schumer’s bogus “immigration” bill. Such a gargantuan pile of horse manure. I’ve already contacted both of my Senators here in Alabama and told them that if they know what’s good for them, they will not vote for it…..not that I thought either would in the first place….but I think it’s good to remind even relatively reliable politicians that there are some lines that they damn well better not EVER cross.

      It is appropriate that this event is occurring in the City of Sin.

    • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 10:44 am #

      The winner will be the Kansas City Chiefs. Why? Because Swift brings good money to the NFL. Can you imagine the post game show when the Chiefs subdue the 49ers? They won’t show the players, the coaches or the staff, the cameras will be on Tay Tay and Trav. Gag.

      The poor 49ers. They are doomed to lose this one. It’s already been decided.

      • sadlycdn February 5, 2024 at 11:21 am #

        I think the NFL would love nothing more than Chiefs to win….money and eyeballs will be off the charts…. they have never had such a side attraction like this…at least for now the name Chiefs is safe…..even the woke are loving this

      • Blackbird February 5, 2024 at 7:23 pm #

        Taylor needs to get with the program, ditch the honkey redneck, and hook up with L’il Nas X. Now that’s a match made in Hell – or Hollywood – same difference.

        (You can thank me later TayTay.)

      • kbird February 6, 2024 at 11:08 am #

        Cankerpuss is an ol Sourpuss. My god, you’ve bought into one of the funniest conspiracy theories I’ve heard so far…the Superbowl is rigged for the Chiefs, lol, so Swift can endorse Biden.

        You seem upset that the Cameras have panned to Taylor during the game. What a silly thing to be upset about, her average of screen time during the games is between 20-35 seconds…big f-ing deal. The constant cut away’s to the idiotic fans don’t seem to bother you.

        I just find it sad that it’s mostly you sad old men who are upset with Taylor Swift. As if it’s her fault the camera get’s pointed at her. She is a succesful Woman, who would never show you the time of day, let’s face it, that’s why you are so upset about seeing a succesfull Woman on TV, LOL!

    • Beryl of Oyl February 5, 2024 at 10:44 am #

      You’re mixing up Taylor with Miley Cyrus, performance-wise.

      Taylor is fairly G-rated.

          • RD3 February 5, 2024 at 11:27 am #

            Me too. When I was a kid, Alabama was the biggest act in the country. I recently met the guy who wrote Born Country for Alabama. Nice guy. He also wrote Fool Hearted Memory, which was George Strait’s first #1.

          • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 12:50 pm #

            Man I’d love to meet Randy Owen, Jeff Cook and Teddy Gentry. Mark Herndon is no longer part of the band but he was definitely part of all of their albums and tours.

            Even Country music today stinks to high heaven. It all sounds the same to me. What made Alabama special is they had a unique sound, as did all of the bands and musicians of that musical era. Today music all sounds the same. Bad poetry with a computer generated beat. Pathetic.

          • RD3 February 5, 2024 at 1:16 pm #

            Unfortunately, Jeff Cook passed away in 2022.

          • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 1:24 pm #

            Jeff Cook passed away? No kidding. I didn’t know. That breaks my heart. That dude could play a fiddle like nobody I have ever seen.

          • RD3 February 5, 2024 at 1:33 pm #

            I had tickets to see them in 2021, but my wife was afraid of COVID at the time, and didn’t want me to go. She has since seen the light, but it was the final tour with Jeff Cook.

            If you’re gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band.

          • RD3 February 5, 2024 at 5:09 pm #

            Great tune. My grandfather learned Wabash Cannonball in Germany during the war. Even when he couldn’t remember anything else, he could remember the words to that song.

          • Rowdypiglet February 6, 2024 at 10:43 am #

            Beryl, I wish we were culturally dead. We do have a culture, it’s just sick, degraded, and depraved. But it’s flourishing all around us, so apparently we like it that way.

      • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 11:16 am #

        Tay Tay can’t sing. That’s why all of her “music” is auto-tuned. Frankly, she isn’t that pretty either. I don’t know why she is popular.

        Miley Cyrus is the next Madonna. I predict in the next 10 years her face will have been worked over so many times by plastic surgeon she’ll retain that catcher’s mitt appearance as she regularly engages in the most perverted debauchery to keep herself in the spot light.

        I truly pity these people. Humans are incapable of dealing with so much fame and wealth. They can’t handle it. Hence they turn to drugs, can’t maintain relationships, and like Robin Williams end up offing themselves long before their time is up.

        Such a waste of life.

        • Beryl of Oyl February 5, 2024 at 11:37 am #

          She writes her own songs. Allowances have always been made for the vocal inadequacies of the singer/songwriter.

          Her fans like her music. A lot.

          Way back when she first started to be a thing, I thought a couple of her tunes would have appealed to me had I been in my teens.

          She had some catchy pop stuff.

          • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 12:52 pm #

            “Allowances have always been made for the vocal inadequacies of the singer/songwriter”

            Not before auto-tune. You were either good enough or you didn’t sing because nobody would listen.

          • Beryl of Oyl February 5, 2024 at 1:11 pm #

            Explain Barry Manilow.

            Did Bob Dylan get judged on his singing ability?

          • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 2:27 pm #

            Barry Manilow could sing. I don’t believe auto-tune was available for him to use.

            Bob Dylan couldn’t sing Placido Domingo but his voice lent itself to the kind of music he produced.

            Did Neil Diamond sing like Pavarotti? No. His voice was harsh and rough but it was suited for the music he sang.

            What about Brian Adams whose voice was gravelly and raspy. John Mellencamp? Or Brian Jonhson, the lead singer of ACDC? These guys all had voices that could benefit from auto-tune technology.

            Their voices were unique and real and resulted in great appeal.

          • RD3 February 5, 2024 at 3:31 pm #

            Ernest Tubb couldn’t sing very well, but everyone loved his voice.

          • Wizard of the Saddle February 5, 2024 at 5:50 pm #

            Swifies are a pathetic gaggle of teeny-boppers and college chicks who marinade in toxic feminism and misandry.

            Most will end up fat, single, run-through by Chads after years riding the cock carousel and living with vast multitudes of cats.

        • megabeth February 5, 2024 at 12:50 pm #

          Taylor Swift looks as if she were drawn by Dr. Suess. I don’t think I could name one of her products.

          Miley Cyrus, on the other hand, managed to come up with an infectious, formulaic piece of bubblegum called “Flowers.” The “backyard concert” version is especially toe-tapping. I HATE that I like it.

          • Beryl of Oyl February 5, 2024 at 1:16 pm #

            I liked that one, and I like her latest one as well, and I too hate that I like it.

            When she writes a song, she gets help from others, so who knows how much of it is her own talent?

            I heard her sing a capella once, she doesn’t have a bad voice, just not a lot of range.

            She relies on notoriety from her sleazy and sensational performances.

        • kbird February 6, 2024 at 11:13 am #

          More sadness from Cankerpuss… More hating on succesful beautiful women who would never even look twice at you…. Sad pathetic man.
          But get your facts straight, Robin Williams killed himself because he had Lewey Body Dementia, which causes very vivid and terrible paranoia and hallucinations you insensitive judgemental twat.

      • Paula D February 5, 2024 at 12:41 pm #

        I somehow manage to miss most of American pop culture and sports fads.

        But when I was working I always knew who was going to play in the Super Bowl every year, against my will, much like everything I know about Harry and Meghan I learned against my will.

        Once I quit working I haven’t known until this year. This year I know again. Plus, this year I have learned there is a superstar named Taylor Swift, although at first I called her Taylor Smith, and my husband laughed at me.

        People may not know that the US supports Nazis in Ukraine, or that the US is occupying 30% of Syria and stealing their land and oil, but by God, they know who is playing the Super Bowl, and what’s more….they have strong opinions on the matter.

        • Beryl of Oyl February 5, 2024 at 1:41 pm #

          What surprises me is how many old men have strong opinions about a 34 year old woman pop star.

          Not just on her talent or lack thereof, every aspect of her life.

          When I first brought her up at this site, it was to note the unusual amount of corporate support she was getting, even for a top entertainer.

          She is one of the top entertainers today, whether any old people like it or not.

          • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 2:32 pm #

            I think the biggest reason “old men” have strong opinions about her is that whether liked or not she is constantly being pushed into their faces, especially at a football game when most dudes just want to enjoy a hard hitting game instead of seeing images of Tay Tay supporing her man. I have no real interest in the woman. I didn’t care about her before her little trist with Travis K became public.

            Kind of like Harry and Megan. I could not care less about these two but I know a surprising amount about them and that is amazing considering I have never clicked on an article about them or placed any effort in actually reading about them.

            Sometimes we old guys can’t avoid these people. 😉

          • Paula D February 5, 2024 at 3:00 pm #

            It isn’t just old men, Cankerpuss, that is my point.

            All Americans swim in propaganda, including what they call “entertainment news”.
            If you live here you will be exposed, whether you click on it or not. You get it through osmosis, swimming in a sea of it.

            My daughters tell me that they are not interested in Ukraine when I try to update them. They say they skip the news about Ukraine and I believe them.

            But guess what? They do know about Ukraine. They know the Establishment narrative. They have absorbed it through living here. If I try to tell them the truth it seems wrong to them, although they insist that they have no opinion.

            I am not interested in football or pop stars or the Super Bowl. It doesn’t matter. I swim in it also.

            That is why shitlibs come on here and think they are educating us with something we have never been exposed to, but they are wrong. We know what they think, because we all get the same propaganda.
            They just don’t know what we think, and know, because they never seek out real sources of info.

          • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 5:50 pm #

            Well said, Paula D. I feel the same way. There is no way to escape this bullshit. At the grocery store I see Tay Tay fake painted face all over every magazine with big bold letters telling us about her favorite toilet paper or mouth wash. I DON’T CARE one whit about the broad.

          • Soul Forensics February 5, 2024 at 6:02 pm #

            I disagree with Paula.

            I don’t follow the NFL or contemporary pop music, so all I know about Taylor Swift is that she’s a mega-star. I haven’t heard her perform any song, or even a snippet of one. Don’t know (or care) about the NFL connection.

            It’s simple. I don’t own or watch TV, listen to commercial radio, or frequent pop music commentary sites.

            It’s the same response I have to people who yearly and incessantly complain about the commercialization of Christmas: don’t watch TV, listen to popular radio, or visit the mall. Problem doesn’t need to be solved because it can be completely avoided.

          • Blackbird February 5, 2024 at 7:32 pm #

            If you go to the grocery store, you can’t help but be enlightened about the Fearless! and Fierce! Taylor Swift. She will surround you in the check-out lane.

            Meghan Markle-Saxe-Coburg-Gotha must be seething with jealousy. (Meanwhile poor Prince ‘Arry must be thinking, “Bloody ‘Ell, oy jus’ can’t get anyfing roight!”)

          • Anthea February 6, 2024 at 12:14 am #

            @ Soul Forensics:

            I do the same as you. I have no idea what Taylor Swift even looks like, and, to my knowledge, I have never heard her sing.

            I have never noticed any magazines featuring her in the check-out line at the grocery store. There are plenty of other things to look at while you’re there, and I rarely even notice the magazines.

            I too feel that the way to avoid being exposed such sewage is to have no TV and to use your car radio for plugging in the AUX cable, so you can listen to the good music stored in your cell phone.

          • Paula D February 6, 2024 at 1:14 pm #

            Soul and Anthea: And yet you spelled her name right.
            I’m betting you both know who’s playing in the Super Bowl, as well.

            It has nothing to do with TV. You don’t need a TV. You just need a cell phone, or to live in the USA and occasionally go out and interact with other Americans.

            You just read through a foot or so of comments on Taylor Swift. Claiming you never heard of her is a bit disingenuous.

          • Anthea February 7, 2024 at 9:58 am #

            @ Paula D;

            No, actually I have no idea who is playing in the Superbowl. I detest professional sports and go out of my way not to know anything about them.

          • Anthea February 7, 2024 at 10:09 am #

            @ Paula D:

            I didn’t claim I never heard of Taylor Swift. I said I have no idea who she is or what she looks like, and I don’t think I’ve ever heard her sing. (I have gathered here that she is a singer–and actually I think I did have some notion that she’s a singer).

            I use my phone to make phone calls, plus I do a little messaging. I rarely connect it with the internet.

            I do check Facebook from time to time. It’s a huge data hog, so I mostly stay away. But pretty much all my Facebook friends are conservatives. Actually, most of them are old ladies. None of them are much interested in sports–and certainly not Taylor Swift.

            I am retired, but I don’t remember hearing anything about sports (or celebrities), even when I was in the working world. I don’t think this stuff ever came up at the farmers’ markets, when I was a vendor for about ten years.

    • TruthSeeker1986 February 5, 2024 at 10:48 am #

      I can’t stand her at all, and honestly have no idea why she is even popular in the first place. This country has shit taste in music. And I rarely hear anyone globally mentioning her awful ass. Except maybe a few of her Filipino fans who are mostly gay males and trans people.

      • JohnAZ February 5, 2024 at 10:51 am #

        It is just plain celebrity worship, a very real mental illness of the American public, especially the young part.

        • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 11:21 am #

          Humans are wired to believe in something. Strip away the belief in God and they turn to other things to worship. Some worship money. Others worship material things like cars and precious metals. Many Americans turn to the worship of other human beings known as celebrities.

          It’s a sad state of affairs when humans worship other humans but it has always been the lot of our species.

          • JohnAZ February 5, 2024 at 11:47 am #

            Human beings are inherently evil, “they live in sin”

            So celebrity worship is evil worshipping evil.

            Especially when most of the celebrities are mentally and spiritually deficient.

            It is a breeding ground for evil.

            Truthseeker, in 1964, my parents thought the Beatles were bad news because they were mop tops. How times have changed.

          What? Cults of personality dictate what we do here? Seriously, that goes back to George Washington’s day. As time has passed, our slavish worship of Lincoln, then TR, then Wilson, progressively worse (pardon the pun) — then on through the quasi-dictators, FDR and LBJ, and on to the dictators Soetoro and Biden (as placeholder for Soetoro). And the same with pop culture: we start out swooning over one talented person, then the next one is propped up, then the next, till now we have a barely-clothed skank strutting around as the model of American femininity, with a motto of “find em, fuck em and flee” (as NWA put it). In a few months, when the Swifties burn their Chiefs swag and buy TayTay’s latest breakup album, stuffed full of vapid observations about the doofus Travis Kelce, we’ll be reminded how she’s empowering women. To do what? Fuck some guy, get his hopes up, dump him, then publicly humiliate him? THAT is what feminism has been about, that and murdering 64 million children? And we wonder why men and women are adrift, and our society is circling the bowl?

It’s pretty clear you obviously got dumped and humiliated by a woman. Don’t take it out on Taylor.

          lol her music doesn’t have any meaning, she’s literately a copy cat of Madonna or at least trying to replace her now that she’s old and screwed up her face because she was worried about aging. If a woman even told me she listened to Taylor I’d drop her ass. You want to know a woman that can sing?

            Truthseeker, settle down now. I saw a great Fox news sports commentator, he was talking about Taylor Swift and all the hate since she’s been at the games. He made a great point. He said “Pay attention to the silly things people get upset about”….Who gives a fuck if someone likes a musician, or a song…it’s pretty pathetic really. Are you going to dump a wonderful woman who likes a different flavor of Icecream too? Seriously, there are big issues for relationships not to work out and music choices shouldn’t be one of them. But you are young so you’ve alot to learn. Looks like you’re already heading down the rabbit hole with the Nonsense on this site, that’s too bad.

        • Jarek February 5, 2024 at 2:16 pm #

            Megabeth, you are correct on Lady Gaga, her voice is phenomenal. She used to be in a Led Zepplin cover band, look that one up, she’s amazing vocals and talent.

        • Wizard of the Saddle February 5, 2024 at 5:54 pm #

          Not really. They just are whores with no morals who allow Chads to bend them over regularly and then they get depressed when the Chads dump them. Then they want to blame all men for their problems – even though they ignore 99% of most men – insisting on chasing the Chads.

          This is pretty much all that Taylor Swift sings about, so of course they love her for it. Makes them feel “validated” in their seething rage for the male sex.

          • kbird February 6, 2024 at 11:42 am #

            Wizard hahahaha, looks like you must be one of the 99 percent who get’s ignored by any beautiful woman, that’s why you call them whores. We all know you’d happily, as you say, bend them over, if they ever gave you a chance. But they never would, so instead you spew this nonsense. It’s so obvious what you are really upset about. Awwwww, poor Wizard.

      • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 11:20 am #

        It’s not music. Its auto-tuned poetry with a computer generated beat. It is horrible.

        I miss the days when musicians actually sang and played instruments. When bands performed and what you heard was imperfect melody and harmonics. It was beautiful because it was real.

        Nothing in America is real anymore. The music is fake. Entertainment is computer generated. The women have face faces, fake lips, fake breasts and fake asses. Men dress up like fake women. Everyone is living in debt but pretend like they are wealthy. Professional Sports is fake succumbing to the wealth generation of gambling.

        I’m real. My wife is real. That’s about all I can trust these days. Everything else in America is a lie.

          • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 1:01 pm #

            I grew up listening to Alabama, Oak Ridge Boys, the Judds, Randy Travis, Bon Jovi, Van Halen, Guns N Roses, George Strait, and many others. Each had their unique sound and that is what made them so popular and desireable. They also stuck around for a few years.

            Today? I don’t know any modern bands. If I do learn of a new artist or a son that appeals to me it is a one hit wonder and they are never heard from again.

            I tend to listen more to orchestral soundtracks these days as the music produced for movies is still very beautiful and an art form in and of itself. Country, rock, hip hop and rap have zero appeal to me.

          • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 1:03 pm #

            They were also human. So listening to their songs sometimes they’d get a note wrong or there would be harmonic variations or a breath would be heard. Today? Auto-tune makes it too perfect.

            That was the beauty of music and musicians of the past. They were imperfect people doing amazing things with instruments and voices and it was amazing to behold. Today? Too perfect. No flaws. It’s not real.

          There is a lot of wonderful music out there, but you will not hear it on the radio. I pretty much got off the pop bandwagon when New Wave began to louse up the airwaves, but I’ve found so much good out there in the unkempt wilds of the internet. My husband’s nephew has been singing and swinging his axe for decades (Think Beatles + Rockpile + Delta blues) but just sells a little here and there. To enjoy him and others, ya gotta dig.

          • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 1:04 pm #

            I scour the depths of Youtube looking for new music. Yes, it is out there but you won’t hear it on the popular channels.

            Read the “Saving Country Music” blog. There is a ton of great reviews and articles on there. There is a lot of good music out there now, you just won’t hear it on the radio, or in most tv shows. I don’t watch tv, but I heard the show Yellowstone has featured some good independent artists.

            @megabeth:

            Yup. There’s lots of great music out there. I must have a hundred songs stored in my phone. I do have to dig to find something new to listen to.

          • Soul Forensics February 6, 2024 at 2:47 am #

            I agree with megabeth. We’re so lucky to be living in an age where you can find any kind of music you want on a myriad of sites, so much of it stellar. And I’m talking about contemporary music in any number of genres and sub-genres — rock, blues, jazz, electronic, classical (though you have to go through a ton of sludge to get the good stuff in that latter genre), world music (especially Indian music of the sub-continent), and hybrids of those combinations.

            People who reflexively complain about today’s music are either too lazy to find the best stuff, are hidebound and narrow in their tastes, or are just incurious in general.

            Visit “radio garden”, or pick a genre and find comprehensive aggregator sites with hundreds of stations, the songs populated and transmitted by passionate and knowledgeable site founders and music collectors.

        • Wizard of the Saddle February 5, 2024 at 5:56 pm #

          That’s about the sum of it. None of her music will endure – no matter how well it has been marketed to legions of lost women under 40.

          A century from now if anyone mentions her name the response will be: “Taylor Who?”

          “I’m real. My wife is real. That’s about all I can trust these days. Everything else in America is a lie.” Cankerpuss

          You and your wife are the only people who are real in in America?

          Maybe instead of having an intransigent mind, and a proudly cynical one, you could get out more and explore different social circles — musically, spiritually, or just with carefree fun hobbies.

          Aside from work, (and even that is solvable in many cases), we’re responsible for the quality and numbers of worthy friends and acquaintances we socialize with.

        • Rowdypiglet February 6, 2024 at 11:56 am #

          @Cankerpuss, I’d never heard Taylor Swift until recently when she was mentioned by Rod Dreher, one of whose commenters provided two links – one to her present “music” and another to where she began.

          At the beginning of her career, she was all about adolescent high school girl romance, a kind of musical 13 year old’s diary, overwrought and embarrassing but perfectly calculated to appeal to her audience.

          You can then trace the trajectory of her music from adolescent girl angst through to the present focus on trans trans trans. She has taken her teen audience along with her, moving their focus into the chosen channels. In a sense, she has groomed her young followers – whether deliberately or just in the sense of taking them along as she leaves the normal world and sinks deep into the new normal. Her followers aren’t adolescents any more, but they have entirely failed to grow up and are still desperate to please and imitate the popular girl.

          The second link showed her recent effort, a nasty, defiant attempt to show non-affirmers as toothless morons (holding signs misspelling “moron” as “moran”) while whale-like blue haired trans creatures leapt around in the background, shaking their blubber. The effect, in spite of the obvious effort put into it, was the same old two year old having a tantrum and soiling Mommy’s clean floor. That so many supposed adults have built their lives around infantile rebellion against all norms says nothing good about their ability to survive what’s coming.

          • malthuss February 6, 2024 at 12:42 pm #

      • cbeard February 6, 2024 at 9:17 am #

        The U.S. certainly has shit taste in music, these days. I prefer the Great American Songbook with the Gershwins, Harry Warren, Al Dubin, etc. when Jazz was pop music of the day. Also Blues, Bluegrass, old country and all the vocal greats such as Sinatra, Bennet, Fitzgerald. Big band stuff like Basie and Ellington. Can’t leave out the Beatles and the Rolling Stones (in my humble opinion) are bar none the greatest Rock and Roll band of all time.

        • cbeard February 6, 2024 at 9:19 am #

          I agree with the above that there is still great music out there, but you won’t hear much of it commercially broadcast.

          • Paula D February 5, 2024 at 3:08 pm #

            So I went and looked it up also. I don’t know how Celine sings, but isn’t she known for being a pervert? One of those blood drinkers?
            Or do I have her mixed up with someone else?

            In any case, since when does an award recipient have to give a speech about the one handing her the trophy?

            Grrrr, this is one of those things I have no interest, but end up finding out about it anyway.

            When accepting an award from a legend, particularly from one who has been too ill to step foot on a stage, it is common courtesy to at least look at the person doing the presenting.

            I generally pay no attention to these snub and feud stories, but Taylor was rude.

          • Paula D February 6, 2024 at 1:21 pm #

            I discussed this with my husband last night.

            I saw a video where she was pushing non-gender baby clothes, so I thought she was a fashion designer. I had no idea she was a singer.

            Anyway, the baby clothes were creepy, and so was the video.
            It definitely gave off predator vibes.

            He thought that I mixed her up with Christian Dior because the initials were the same, but no, I am pretty damn sure that it was her, because when she got arrested she said “But I’m Celine Dion.”

            Anyway, I thought that maybe Taylor didn’t like pedophiles, but Rowdy says she’s a trans pusher, so that usually goes together with the other perversions.

          • megabeth February 6, 2024 at 3:04 pm #

            Paula, Dion was marketing gender-neutral baby clothes for some unknowable, fucked-up reason. “Theybies”!

            Thanks, megabeth, for validating my lived experience (JK). But yeah, thanks.

            For a while during Pizzagate, people were very interested in pedophilia, and I think that’s when I saw that video.
            That, and disgusting videos about the Podesta and Alefantis (owner of Comet Pizza) circles.

            Funny how the Pizzagate uproar was deftly turned into an Epstein uproar.
            Don’t think about babies and children being raped and murdered, here’s a dude who preyed on teenaged girls!

            When looking up the name of Alefantis I found this archive.

    It seems that hardly anyone knows what a Fascist/Socialist is. Not surprising, since Socialists have been trying to distance themselves from being labeled as Fascist/Socialists since Hitler invaded Poland. But, make no mistake, Socialist/Fascism and Socialist/Communism are just two flavors of Socialism, not totally opposite ideologies. In the U.S., the Democrat Party has fully embraced the very worst features of BOTH Socialist/Fascism and Socialist/Communism, and even the RINO wing of the Republican Party is getting duped into the Socialist mindset. Trumpism, for all of its warts, is the last bastion of actual conservatives who believe in a Constitutional Republic and a free market capitalist economy. Therefore, both the Socialist/Fascists and the Socialist/Communists are out to destroy Trump and the belief in the Constitutional Republic and free market capitalist economy that he represents.

    So, the neocons (who are neither “neo” nor “conservative”) are wholehog in on supporting Socialist/Fascism in Ukraine, the WEF, much of the European Union. Meanwhile, the Democrat scum elite, with Biden as lead grifter, are also supporting the Socialist/Fascists , and are also in the back pocket of the Chinese Communists–“Communists” who, by the way, at least in terms of economic policy, are acting a whole lot more like Socialist/Fascists in the last 30 years or so. In the U.S., there is also a growing cadre of corporatist oligarchs who flat out quit being free market capitalists and who have fully embraced Socialist/Fascist corporatism, where they get preferential treatment by the Democrat regime in exchange for pledging their total alliance to the regime. That includes most all of the tech tyrants (except Musk, who they are out to destroy), the mainstream media, and much of the banking and finance sector (listen to Blackrock Larry Fink extoll the virtues of the ChicComm dictatorship for some proof).

    Meanwhile, old-fashion free market, freedom-loving, common sense, middle class Americans get to take it up the rump from both the Socialist/Communists and Socialist/Fascists who openly hate them and their “old-fashioned” ideas about the Constitution, Rule of Law, and freedom.

        Still as dumb as a bag o’ hammers. JohnAZ…

        You forgot to include democratic socialism, where the means of production is privately owned, but the State, acting on behalf of all constituents, regulates the market so that the ‘self-interest and greed’ is at least reined in a little and Joe Sixpack at the bottom of the heap has as fair a chance at ‘success’ (whatever that is) as his neighbors.

        You purport to be Christian, right? I can think of no political system that could be more ‘Christian’ than that described above.

        “Love thy neighbor as thyself” can be simplified to “Don’t be an asshole”. MAGAts are, generally, assholes. Drumpf is a YUGE asshole. If you don’t see yourself as an asshole, JohnAZ, then your rose-tinted prescription sunnies need an upgrade.

      Hopeless. The greed is good gospel that got us where we are today.

      Obviously, greed heads will endorse whatever political philosophy that they need at the time. Once the Corporate Stage is reached, they are no longer for free speech or even nations at all.

      Similarly, the Tribe used to be all in for free speech. Once they took over, they were no longer big on free speech since they like to be able dictate truth from the media that they own. So they will strengthen or cohere with the wave that is also coming from the Corporations in regards to speech.

      The only problem is that they want one nation to remain – coincidently, theirs. That’s a big problem for everybody.

      Canker – In the last couple of weeks I’ve gone to the post office in our little town and encountered 2 different middle aged women, one who had dyed her curly mophead half purple and half green, and another woman who just settled on all green. I swear I’m going to buy the ugliest rainbow clown wig I can find and wear it to Wallyworld.

      • Cankerpuss February 5, 2024 at 1:08 pm #

        I saw a dude, well, I think it was a dude but I am not 100% sure, it’s hard to tell in today’s world where women want to be men and men want to be women but I think it was a dude. Anyway, this dude had lemon yellow hair. I’ve seen purple, red, green, blue and aqua but never bright yellow. I wondered how much he had spent on making his hair so blazing yellow?

        I find people are just down right ugly and nasty and the more I venture out to the store the more I am convinced of this. Nobody dresses up for anything. Women wear their pajamas everywhere. The men are in filthy clothes and ill-fitting pants with their undies hanging out.

        There was a time when men went out they put on a suit and a derby hat and the women put on a long floor length dress. I wasn’t alive then but I see the pictures. There is no self pride in people anymore. We are definitely devolving as a species.

      Up here, the people getting tattoos and punching staples all over their bodies don’t have resources. They live in run-down houses – where they don’t even shovel the snow off their stairs, so they slip and fall and break unused body parts.

      How about that initialed peace deal that the US government put the kibosh on?

      Maybe Tucker can ask Putin to fill us in on that?

      Something I just thought of- the first we heard about the deal early on in the Ukraine war, was from a reliable source- Naftali Bennett.

      He then walked it back, and people who claimed that any deal had been reached but the US blocked it were ridiculed as conspiracy theorists by such unreliable sources as Business Insider.

      We have since heard the same store from numerous reputable sources, including Bobby Jr.

      So, we have a former Israeli PM retracting a story unfavorable to the US, and money for Ukraine being made contingent on aid for Israel, a wealthy country.

      Hmm.

    I don’t know. Yesterday I was out in the back clearing out brush with a machete & a fire axe, threw on some headphones & tuned into CBS Sunday political talk shows. The overriding theme — guest after guest — was how evil Trump is, Trump is a threat to Our Democracy, & White Nationalism must be neutralized. The massive 3rd World invasion of our southern border is described as a ‘Wedge issue that appeals to racists” and might hurt Biden, not as an existential problem affecting the whole country. These were 3 or four guests saying this, most likely Dem operatives, but the CBS hosts seemed to agree. I haven’t tuned into MSM broadcasts in a long time & I see they haven’t changed since their heads were stuck up Obama’s @$$ 16 years ago.

    • Mike Sherman February 7, 2024 at 6:22 pm #

      “Ultimately, only about 125,000 Nevadans voted in the Democratic primary and 80,000 in the Republican primary, NBC News estimates.

      So the 4% of Dems means there are around 3.125 m Dem voters in Nevada. That doesn’t sound right. Data from the Nevada SoS says there’s only 1.9 m voters all up. So the 4% figure is bogus.

      nvsos.gov/sos/home/showpublisheddocument/12866/638424004083470000

      So, 125000/596000 = 20.9%

      As to GOP – 80000/559000 = 14.3%.

    I was embarrassed for John Miller on CNN.

    They were talking about the “migrants” in NYC.

    Mr. Miller is a man who has been around, and who knows a lot.

    He is also a man who is a real police buff, with many, many close friendships of NYPD.

    Even he had to confine his remarks to the uber-liberal “most of them are just here looking for work…better life…blah blah blah disclaimer.

    No John. Anyone who crosses illegally into another country is by definition a criminal; and no, they don’t have to do it that why because it’s too hard for them to do it legally (talking to you, RFK) and President Biden deliberately ended President Trump’s more than reasonable Remain In Mexico policy for purposes of allowing this invasion.

    The best Miller could do, after seeing police beat up by asylum seekers is to drop the fact that some of these people are organized criminal gangs that come to NY to commit their crimes because in Florida they would be arrested. Hint hint maybe they should be arrested in New York too?

    What is he afraid of?

        Just for interest for when Society breaks down. You know to break up the routine of pan-fried sow-bugs and possum livers.

        Deep Fried Snake

        If you want something more interesting than boiling or stir frying a snake, here’s a helpful recipe for some deep fried snake, if you happen to have these ingredients on hand:

        A box of cornbread mix
        Two egg whites or milk
        Black pepper
        Cooking oil

        Here is a detailed step-by-step guide how to deep fry a snake:

        After your snake has been skinned, cut it up into sizable chunks. Be sure to cut between and in the same direction as the ribs to avoid small chunks of bone in your meat.
        Add black pepper to your cornbread mix
        Submerge each piece of snake meat any our egg whites or milk, and then roll around in your cornbread mixture until thoroughly coated.
        Shake off the excess and heat up your oil.
        Once it’s hot, add your snake meat to the oil and cook until golden brown on all sides.

          It’s funny the foods that people wax rhapsodic about.

          There’s a rather attractive but poisonous plant that mostly grows in the South, called Pokeweed, but there are people who get misty-eyed talking about eating “poke salat”.

          You have to boil the shoots and throw off the water multiple times, to even make it ingestible.

            @ Beryl of Oyl:

            Poke is really good. I think it’s also pretty hardy. It’s an attractive plant.

            Boiling in multiple changes of water ruins it by turning it to mush. The way to cook poke is to put about two gallons of water in a large pot and bring it to a boil. Remove from heat and add about a pound of poke. Cover and let stand for 20 minutes and strain through a collander.

            You used to be able to buy canned poke salat at some grocery stores–sold by the Allen Canning Company–but they have discontinued it.

            I’ve always enjoyed eating poke in the spring. A couple of years ago, I noticed that eating poke seemed to lower my blood sugar. I could find very little poke last spring, so I didn’t get a chance to test this more. (I’m too old to traipse around the woods looking for it.) This year I started some poke from seed to transplant into the garden.

            The whole plant is medicinal–and also poisonous to a greater or lesser degree. The berries are poisonous, but supposedly not if you remove the seeds. The mature leaves are poisonous, and will cause diarrhea. The young leaves are delicious if prepared as I described above, but they too will give you diarrhea if not properly prepared.

            The root can be a deadly poison, but is thought to be a valuable medicine. J.L. Hudson claims he cured his own Lyme Disease with poke root. Using it medicinally requires using only very small doses–and knowing enough about what you’re doing to know what a small dose is. A poultice of the root has been used for breast cancer and to relieve the pain of arthritis.

            Interestingly, it is also a mitogen–encourages cell division–so it’s used in biological research.

            Wikipedia says, “It can also induce proliferation of cells that target tumors, which is useful for the treatment of cancer. Other studies in mice showed that PWM contributes to weight-loss effects and increased glucose uptake which makes this lectin a subject for implementation in diabetes or obesity in humans.”

            A fascinating plant.

          Up thisa way, what folks call a “puff adder” is a species of hognose snake (Heterodon platirhinos). Safe to eat. But why? They are so amusing to watch.

          There are also puffballs, a type of fungus, some of which reportedly cause auditory hallucinations – but are otherwise safe to eat.

            Some people around here hunt mushrooms, and one or two of my former neighbors were quite good at it. At the house where I used to live, the ground under my white pine regularly produced a crop of mushrooms in the fall. Once it was honey mushrooms, and for a few years after that it was boletes. I also found boletes once or twice in one of our local parks.

            The favored mushroom here in Missouri is the morel, which is so distinctive looking that it would be almost impossible to make a mistake. A couple of years ago, my daughter and her husband must have collected about a bushel of them on their property.

        As a renegade East Texan (born in Bryan in 1940) I was amused to hear a theory about the unnervingly high number of snake bites in recent times in the Lone Star state.

        The theory going around is that many of these ornery rattlers are striking without giving that chilling warning buzz first. Now why would they do that? Well anybody who knows Texas these days is aware of the unstoppable invasion of wild pigs. The suggestion has been made that the dry buzz of a rattle is a dinner gong to the porkers, who will stampede to grab that poor serpent and tear it to bits.

        Bites? Unless one is unlucky enough to be struck on his snout they probably wouldn’t feel it, as their thickly matted hair is inpenetrable.

        The rattlers have taken to a stealth tactic.

But they saw an opportunity to cash in, and to uglify and destroy, which they justified as their inalienable right to do as they wished and get rich doing it. They were more destructive by far than the dimwits who throw paint on works of art, and were slick as the sellers of patent medicines. Any one of them would have torn down Monticello and built a Walmart on the site, as long as they made their money out of it.

      RD, Andy didn’t die from AIDS. He was shot by a crazy woman who later went on to form the organization S.C.U.M. (Society To Cut Up Men) Her delusion was that Warhol plagiarized some deranged movie script she had written, which wasn’t true.

      Warhol also fell in with a quack chiropractor which prevented him from getting the professional medical care he needed to keep him alive. He died at the relatively young age of 59, ultimately from a ruptured gallbladder.

        Our appraisals diverge. Originally a fashion magazine designer, the desperately-climbing, famous-for-being-famous Warhola never really went beyond the piss-elegant prettiness. Even his electric chairs looked like something out of a furniture catalog. The prices for those silkscreens are a reflection of how stupid money can get.

        “Andy” was reportedly terrified of hospitals and the tribe that swarm them. I happened to be in New York when it was rumored that a Filipina nurse was suspected of having bungled some procedure and done him in.

    Interesting that so many confess to being the black sheep. I’m the exact opposite, the one who is financially comfortable and socially stable; ostensibly the leader of the clan.

    Perhaps it’s because I never, ever talk politics; it’s weather, sports and neighbors – and never initiated, but always with a nod and smile.

    But it doesn’t really work 100% – family and friends can sense where I’m really coming from. So when I drop little truth bombs now and then, people tend to listen

    Note that I never get on a soap box and demand people listen, but take a more subtle, yet direct means of communication:

More serious stuff is for people you’re very close to. I mean, you don’t usually go around telling people that you’ve decided that God sent you a flat tire for your sanctification–though I guess it would be an amusing thing to say. You can also tell people that you will soon be calling up a lot of people you don’t like, since the penitential season is coming up.

          Anthea,

          Human nature is like physics. Inertia gathers and accelerates.

          The meaning as it translates to talking with strangers is that opening with the weather or gossip about the neighbours just leads to more of the same because it feels comfortable, and the vast majority of people anywhere don’t want to offend, or to be seen as weird or even challenging.

          I agree with Henry Miller or Robert Bly on this matter. Give people a small sense of profundity, or just oddness or a unique slant on the topic, even if it’s a benign one. If they’re obtuse or suspicious, then the hell with them. You’ve saved yourself some time, perhaps a lot of it.

          Maybe it’s a function of getting old, but I have a much stricter aversion to wasting time than I did before.

            @ Soul Forensics:

            I’ve also been blessed with a lot of friends who had no problem at all with being seen as weird or challenging.

            It seems to me that highly individualistic people are dying out with the boomer generation–mainly the ones who lived out their lives in rural areas. The very concept of just being who you are and the world be damned seems to be dying out.

            I also have the impression that highly individualistic people are that way because they can’t conform. It’s just not in them. And the thing about being “weird” is that you can’t hide it. People know. I don’t know how they know, but they do. The only thing left to do is to be who you are and demand that people accept that. And they will–at least in rural areas–because they respect that.

            One of my daughters used to say she could never live in this area because people thought she was weird. And I always told her, “Everyone around here is half crazy. They can get used to you.”

        @Soul, I’m with Mitchell on this one. Though I’d love to discuss literature, especially my particular love (the scholarly antiquarian ghost story), or Art (I grew up with artists and am reasonably knowledgeable), or architecture (I once wrote property and village submissions to the PA Historical and Museum Commission) you can only discuss these things with people who are interested and have a level of knowledge. These people may not be your neighbors, casual friends, or family. In fact, they may be available to you only in discussions online. Extracting “passionate discussion” from people who have no interest is not actually possible.

        • Anthea February 9, 2024 at 2:12 am #

          @ Rowdypiglet:

          One of my highly educated old friends (PhD in Library Science) felt that she couldn’t truly be friends with anyone who wasn’t interested in Medieval Eastern European religious art. If a person insists on being that narrow, they miss out on life.

          One winter when several of my neighbors got together to cut firewood, one of them told of an experience they had. Several guys were cutting down a huge tree and they had decided they wanted it to fall in a certain direction. The tree did not want to cooperate. They decided use a pickup truck to pull the tree in the direction they had chosen. So they tied one end of a rope around the treetop, ran it through the high-up crotch of a nearby tree and from thence to the rear of a pickup truck. The idea was that the truck was powerful enough to pull the tree the right way.

          As the truck began pulling the tree in the direction they wanted it to fall, the tree decided to fall the opposite direction, and the pickup truck was pulled up into the other tree, and the terrified driver found himself sitting in a truck that was dangling ten or twenty feet off the ground.

          I enjoy art, but I don’t know when I’ve heard such a good story.

          One of my former neighbors had an Alabama accent that was so thick that it was sometimes hard to understand her. I loved to hear her talk. I’ve known quite a few people whose distinctive accents were a delight.

          I guess my point is that there’s more to life than Medieval Eastern European religious art–or literature (which just tries to capture life and set it in amber), or architecture or what-not. Life is what underpins them, and is often quite a bit more interesting–life being three-dimensional (or maybe four), and the strictly derivative academic stuff being two-dimensional, with all the organic complexity–and much of delight (and hilarity)–cooked out.

    • Anthea February 6, 2024 at 1:16 am #

      The best way to persuade people is to sort of “plant the seed.” (And shut up.) That way, if they start to get their mind right, they’ll think it was their own idea. This is a good thing.

    Make provisions, war is at the gates.

    Message from Our Lord
    My child, give these words to the world:

    My children, stay close to me for I am Jesus. It is only through prayer that you will render the graces necessary for the upheaval that is soon to spread from one nation to the next. Nations that are will no longer be, for parts of Europe will come to pass. Pray, my children, pray for peace, pray for hearts to soften, for there are many men who hunger for war because they have starved themselves from living in truth. There is no confusion in the truth, for what you deny as truth in this life cannot be denied in the next.

    Pray as you have not prayed before, for the hour is at hand. Call upon the legion of Angels to guide and protect you. Ask the Holy Spirit to aid you in discerning My Will in order for you to live out your mission in this life. Recite the Rosary daily, for it is through My Mother that she will bring you closer to her son, for I am Jesus. This world is going to begin to rock and tremble for a wave of mourning will come and catch many off guard. I have warned my people that the innocence of my little ones is being stripped away and the sacrifice of these innocent souls is why My Father can no longer restrain his just anger. The precipice in which mankind has brought himself to will bring forth the time of warning. It is time to gather your blessed candles and pray, for there is nothing too great for My Mercy. Now go forth for I am Jesus and be at peace, for my mercy and justice will prevail.

    @BRH:

    Marlin, just wanted to thank you for your kind post to me yesterday. I sure do put up with a lot from people here. I’m used to it though. Life is still sweet – the alternative is probably worse,

    Anyway:

    I’m leaving on a jet plane
    I Do know when I’m coming home again

    Leaving for Orlando tomorrow for 2 weeks at our time-share inside Disney. Not counting Foxwoods, which is just a getaway and hardly relaxing, but necessary for mental health reasons, we haven’t had a vacation in 3 years, so we’re looking forward to it very much. I’m bringing along my Ipad to stay in touch.

    • cowbell81 February 5, 2024 at 2:09 pm #

      Have a great vacation, hopefully the trip down there and back will be smooth sailing. Let us know if anyone loses their shit in the airport or on the plane. Hopefully no one will drop trou and start peeing right in the aisle.

      Enjoy your time in the Florida sunshine to relax and unwind. If you get a chance, take a trip on the Small World ride and see if they have updated it to make it more woke.

      • beantownbill. February 5, 2024 at 2:50 pm #

        Thanks, cb. If peeing in the aisle is the worst thing that happens, I could deal with that. Disney has become prohibitively expensive. Our hotel is a one minute walk to Epcot. We found out that entry to the park for one day is $260 for the both of us. No way we’ll go inside the park – we’ve been there a million times already. Therefore, we’re not going to pay a small fortune to get into another park to see if a ride has been updated. Sorry.

        We were planning to just walk the boardwalk around Bay Lake, which is part of the area, and visit everything we want there. Also we hope to visit the gym, lounge at our private pool, the arcade and the ice cream parlor as well as drive to other places (we rented a car) like the outlet stores down the road. We may even go to Universal Studios, a10-15 minute drive to see the Harry Potter ride, which our daughter highly recommended.

      Hey beans, before I forget, here are a couple of links to good articles on Christian Drosten and the “Covid” PCR test. Not the really good rundown of the Drosten fraud that I tried to explain, but very informative and with a lot of links, nonetheless.

      Soak up some summer and be safe.

      • Paula D February 6, 2024 at 1:29 pm #

        Misuse of the PCR test doesn’t “prove” that there was not actually a virus making people sick.

        It only proves that hospitals and clinics are greedy SOBs who will go along with decrees from above, as long as they are paid well for it.

        • Blackbird February 6, 2024 at 5:36 pm #

          Correct Paula. My point in forwarding those links to Beans was to expose the fraud of the misused PCR tests (and of Christian Drosten) – in which he expressed an interest. That is not to say that I agree with everything else that may have been claimed in those articles.

          My current hypothesis is that there was not a real virus involved in the fraud that is the Plandemic. That hypothesis is based primarily on two things: 1) as far as I know, the purported virus has never been isolated, and 2) unleashing a modified virus on the world population is a lot riskier (no matter how good your gain-of-function scientists think they are) than just rebranding colds, the flu, pneumonia, etc.

          I may be wrong. It may be that a naturally occurring virus just happened to show up in the right place at the right time (e.g., smallpox in North America). It may also be that a modified virus was intentionally released. I don’t know. I never will know. All I can do is sort through the information I gather (both credible and not) and adjust my hypotheses as necessary. Lies are sometimes even more informative than the truth.

          At this point, and for the past 4 years now, the information I have gathered has been adequate to give me confidence in my decision not to take the Vaxx – and for that matter, to avoid all other vaccines going forward.

          • Paula D February 7, 2024 at 1:41 pm #

            I wouldn’t take the vax either. But my main focus is on shutting down the 300+ bioweapons research labs the US operates around the world.

            You may believe that our overlords would never do research that might blowback on them, but they actually are doing research trying to produce a virulent pathogen that is also extremely transmissible.
            It’s not easy, because they have to start with actual pathogens already in nature, and try to manipulate them into greater toxicity.
            It’s not easy, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t spending billions trying to do it.

            That is a fact.

          • Blackbird February 7, 2024 at 5:37 pm #

            Actually, I am absolutely convinced that our overlords are working diligently on gain-of-function. And it may be that they took a SARS virus and made it more transmissible – but less lethal – and that is what they are looking for with their fraudulent PCR tests in order to prove the existence of “Covid” in order to justify their power grab. I’m just not convinced that that was necessary – but I’m willing to change my mind if confronted with evidence.

            However, I don’t think that the existence or non-existence of the purported SARS-CoV-2, or its role in causing “Covid” is the most important issue. What is more important is understanding that our overlords cannot be trusted, avoiding the Vaxx, resisting the other measures that go along with the Plandemic, and shutting down bioweapons labs, etc.

    Odd that Jimmy and some commenters here think Putin’s BS outshines, in the toilet, Biden and Trump’s BS. He’s just another pretender, like Trump, who seeks to be King Tut and pretend that “Russia” is a kingdom and not a state that hasn’t failed only because it has fossil fuels which, as you’ve told us, Jimmy Boy, are running out of time. Trump still hasn’t admitted he lost the 2020 election by 7 million votes and will likely lose, if he’s the nominee, by 10 million in 2024. Oh, I forgot: the electoral college and right wing legislatures hoping to ‘legislate’ Trump into victory when The People have spoke loud and clear. It’s a joke, Jake. Poor little Trump complaining that when he sits on his porcelain throne NOBODY calls him king. Keep up the siss sass, boys and girls, because for me it’s A amusing. The truth, as we say, is that Biden has done a heck of a job for Americans, who now earn more as inflation comes down and wages go up. As for infrastructure, “Trump” did nothing but talk. Biden made it happen. As for immigration, there’s a bill now in place that can be made into law if the “Republican” House can think for themselves rather than sit on the porcelain throne with “Trump.” I voted for Trump one and I won’t be fooled again. You betcha.

      Sorry to disappoint you, but Biden has not done one single positive thing. You excuse the inflation he caused, but wages NEVER keep up with inflation and Joe Average always loses spending power. Infrastructure? Name one damn thing that the Mob has created, one? They shoved EVs down our throats, and now the people are pushing back telling the climate nuts to eff off with their costly worthless electric vehicles. We are more dependent now on oil from overseas than with Trump. The order is a total disaster now thanks to Biden open border policies. I hope you enjoy watching the growing Biden, not Hoover towns, growing, bankrupting cities throughout the country. Biden’s idea of infrastructure is homeless tent cities. And your great immigration bill is on hold in the Senate and DOA in the House.

    “Carlson threatens to actually sit down in the same room with Putin… and convey Mr. P’s thoughts and opinions to the citizens of America…”

    Half of America desperately craves to hear Truth. And the other half hates truth worse than anything that exists.

    Half of America welcomes hearing Truth from whatever source it comes from… even if their shirt looks a bit dirty. Or a lot. And the other half of America does everything it can to dirty up the truth itself and make it totally unrecognizable. You know – ‘totally unrecognizable’ – like what America looks like these days to any sane person.

    So it comes down to a choice between hearing some nuggets of Truth from people wherever in dirty shirts… or hearing nothing but lies from those whose shirts are clean and pristine looking on American State media. All depends on what is more important to a person – the look of the shirt or the soundness of their words.

    A grand theft on a mindboggling scale has taken place right in front of our eyes and under our noses. And that crime is the complete Theft of America itself… stolen right from under the feet of We the People who are still trying to comprehend how we all ended up on this bizarre-looking Planet that in some ways resembles the place we knew but can’t be because it is so fundamentally weird and fully corrupted.

    We trusted our leaders and they betrayed us. We trusted our doctors and they are poisoning us. We trusted our religious leaders and they are ignoring our problems and smiling at us to death. We trusted our teachers and they became propagandizers and groomers and lie-peddlers. We are trusting our bosses and they are off-loading our jobs to Artificial Intelligence. And some of us trusted our life partners and they up and went Woke on us.

    “All their blather about ‘our democracy’ is a smokescreen for the lust to shutdown free speech at all costs and push everybody around.”

    Hey, all those people who bullied us in school all had to grow older and find something to do with their lives. And so… welcome to ‘Public Service!’.

    “We are letting a lot of people with probably less than good intentions into our country.”

    And that will blend right in with all the people currently in ‘The Indispensable Nation!’ who have not had good intentions toward America and Americans for generations now.

    We have graduated from, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free”… to… “Give me your people who have no use for America other than to be takers from Americans and haters of white people… and true freedom… and who REFUSE to come to this Country the right way the way honorable people used to do generations ago”.

    “Nikki Haley is trying to out-Biden ‘Joe Biden’. She appeared the other night… doing her impression of a mentally ill presidential candidate.”

    Well, there are times in Life when no acting ability is needed. And a lack of mental facility has become a core job requirement for that high office now. No normal people need apply.

    Which means half of America now fully qualities to be President… or in this case… Resident.

    Our World was fully conquered by Bullies and The Fully Inept.

        Only the Woke do not recognize that this is all in fact happening in real time. And no one who is aware and awake should be surprised.

        There are people who aren’t particularly fond of the Bible. But even folks like that have to admit that many of those writings were down-right psychic and right on the money. And the Book of Revelation is now less of a singular Bible book and more of a real-time commentary on Life on this Planet in the ‘Modern (?)’ Age.

        One may or may not buy into the theology put forth in the Bible. But only the Woke can deny that what many passages of the Bible say are profoundly accurate even though written many hundreds of years ago.

        All one needs to understand today are two books: The Bible… and 1984.

    Yemen’s UN-recognized government has warned of the possibility that Houthi rebels could cut undersea internet cables off the country’s Red Sea coast, calling it “a serious threat to one of the most important digital infrastructures in the world.”

    Moammar Al-Eryani, the Aden-based government’s minister for information, culture and tourism, posted the statement to X following an analysis published in the Gulf International Forum.

    That analysis warned of the potential shift in the Houthi’s strategy in the Red Sea.

    Such a move would see the Houthis’ strategy shift from targeting shipping — itself deeply disruptive to the global economy — to the global flow of information.

    The Houthis have previously disavowed the notion.

    In the analysis published last week, analyst Emily Milliken at the DC-based Askari Defense & Intelligence described undersea cables as the Houthi’s “next casualty.” www,msn.com

      Does the Ansarallah government have the capability to cut the cable?

      Unless you actually believe the Official Story that a few people rented a yacht in Poland, and went out and blew it up with amateur equipment. If you believe that, there is no hope or help for you.

    Something I keep meaning to bring up, and keep forgetting to do.

    About the Taylor Swift psyop. It’s such a stupid idea, it must be true because our intelligence agencies are that stupid.

    The question for me is, why would Ms. Swift endorse Biden? I can see how she probably hates and fears Donald Trump, but Biden isn’t the only potential challenger to Trump.

    There’s the fact too that Taylor has always been a weird Kennedy groupie. Very odd in someone her age.

    Bobby Kennedy has the whole climate thing going, which we know is very important to anyone with her own private jet. They really worry about the rest of us destroying the planet.

    He’s got the support for affirmative action down, he’d love to restrict guns (most entertainers with private security are anti-2A).

    So, what’s not for her to like?

    Is the vaxx that important to her? Is that what this is all about?

    Bear in mind that this is a woman who wrote a song about Ethel, who has visited the Kennedy family, and who presumably has met Bobby.

    She dated one of Bobby’s sons.

    Now that I think about it, maybe that’s what this is all about. What better slap in the face to Bobby Jr., and what better coverup to the dangers of the vaxx than to have this Kennedy-lover choose Biden over Bobby, the anti-vaxxer?

    • Soul Forensics February 5, 2024 at 6:33 pm #

      “The question for me is, why would Ms. Swift endorse Biden?”

      Why does it matter? Young people don’t care about politics, and have never voted in significant numbers.

      • Beryl of Oyl February 5, 2024 at 8:22 pm #

        That’s the whole point of the psyop.

        Bobby Jr. has said that most of his support comes from younger people, not from his own baby boom age group.

        He has also said he thinks he can get enough disaffected Trump and Biden voters to win.

        If Ms. Swift can get enough of the young people, who she has already persuaded to register to vote, to vote for Biden it gives Biden the win, and it also puts an end to any chance of anybody holding anyone accountable for covid.

        It makes Bobby Jr. look bad, he’s such a kook that Taylor couldn’t endorse him.

        Isn’t her boyfriend pushing the vaxx? They don’t do that without any form of remuneration.

        They are counting on Taylor to give Biden the edge with young voters who might otherwise not vote, or vote for Kennedy.

        They are also dragging out Eminem to appeal to a slightly older demographic.

        • Blackbird February 5, 2024 at 8:50 pm #

          Taylor Swift is a psyop. That is why she will support the Big Guy – and get it on with L’il Nas X.

          “…Eminem to appeal to a slightly older demographic”. We older demographics like M&Ms! Big difference. One is real chocolate – the other “white chocolate” (which isn’t even chocolate – what the??).

          Any slightly older fart who wants to listen to white trash rapping – or anyone rapping (or hip-hopping or whatever you call it) – obviously has suffered some kind of cognitive decline. Too much high fructose corn syrup and polysorbate 80.

          But Repubs and Dems begging for celebrity endorsements is nothing new. Every cycle features this.

          It’s embarrassing for the leading candidates, trying to be hip and cool with the youguns by playing “Born in the U.S.A.” before rallies, (which Springsteen disavowed, and in which the song wasn’t understood — the lyrics are meant to be taken ironically).

          It never translates into anything — in numbers or demographically –on voting day.

      Dimitri Orlov never loses sight of the fact that the US elections are rigged.

      I was watching an interview with him by a Brazilian dude, who asked him if Biden could win.
      He never missed a beat, pointing out that there are multiple ways that our owners rig elections, and that if they want Biden to win, Biden will win.
      He then pointed out that Biden might die, or become unable to be shown in public at all, but then they could just use AI and Americans would never notice.
      The hard part, he said, would be programing the AI to stumble over words and say nonsensical phrases, while talking.
      He’s so deadpan funny I like listening to him.

    I don’t share Jim’s optimism on Carlson’s proposed talk with Putin opening the minds of the majority of Westerners regarding American malfeasance.

    What will happen (if it happens at all) is Carlson interviewing Putin for roughly an hour, and the MSM immediately clipping one out-of-context soundbyte to ‘prove’ that Carlson is a “conspiracy theorist” or a “disinfo” spreader on Russia’s payroll.

    Most people have the attention span of gnats. Despite the popularity of long-form podcasts, thoughtful people who listen to them are still in the minority. People don’t want to think for themselves and consider what they’ve heard. They want to be told what to believe by ‘authority’ figures, bolstered by what their friends believe. In other words, they’re feckless conformists. Nothing will change that except hungry bellies and local warfare.

    • TPTB-USA February 5, 2024 at 8:10 pm #

      If Putin provides some critical (shocking) information that fills in some blanks, when those on the left come to the realization that “Joe Biden” has not been honest with them on just one of many issues, then perhaps they will realize that their mind has been closed and be open to viewing issues from a variety of perspectives, and be receptive to an informed discussion.

      This could also be the seed that destroys MSM.

    There are more and more studies coming out saying that because of the birth rate crash in the West, governments need to embrace massive immigration. Otherwise there will be too little workers supporting too many retirees.

    Wait, let me get this straight, the Western countries that doomed the one bread winner household, pushed women into the workforce, trashed private sector pensions, blew unaffordable housing bubbles, inflated the price of everything and are indoctrinating children on their right to choose their gender are now saying there’s a major problem with low birth rates.

    So now flooding the West with third world migrants, mostly miltary age males is the only answer. It’s not like we have shovel ready dam, railroads and canal building jobs for them. This isn’t the 1870’s. What are these people going be doing except competing for the same government resources.

        Do you understand negative numbers? The King and his retainers, are rich in the negative sense. They employ the rod of correction. Want to market bad digestive drugs? We’ll make you take it. No? Yes, we’ll force it down your throat.

        Where there is power, there is wealth. And wealth, power. As Buddha said, fear and shame are the guardians of the world. Without this negative, all life would be imperiled.

        Was it Madison who said, If me were all sages we would need no government at all. But since that is not the case, let us proceed.

        Are you starting to grok the extent of your error? But yes, government can go bad. They can become no better than the corporations which by definition are bad, given only to mammon.

        So then justice becomes a matter of vendetta or individual or clan revenge. That time is coming since our government could not hold itself about the Jungle (Market place) and has been taken over by it.

    It’s actually a perfect segue into a subject that i have long wanted to delve into lol, and that is space junk. Many people might not think about it but our planet is literally surrounded by a vast swarm of debris from space stuff that humans have hurled into space over the years. As time goes on the debris field is thickening and multiplying. In certain graphs it already looks like the asteroid belt is circling the Earth. A pertinent question for any world leader at this critical time is what their plans are to address the space detritus crisis.

    60 Minutes did an expose on the border and it wasn’t a good look at all. Is CBS getting on the bounce Biden bandwagon? Or are they just now paying attention because the subject has reached escape velocity? One of the ranchers they interviewed said 3,000 people crossed his property in one month. It essentially looked like the surface of Mars with a sprinkle of charred organic matter (trees?) scattered about. It could’ve been a segment discussing how humans are an invasive species it was that insane. So what is their angle? Oh and that rancher was arrested for shooting his gun in the air to scare off some of the migrants fyi.

    • TruthSeeker1986 February 6, 2024 at 4:50 am #

      I honestly hate to sound so damn black pill but I feel like we’ve lost this battle….Seriously. The Left has won…..I don’t know what else we can even do about this, really. They might as well should just go ahead and let the entire damn nation of Latin America and everyone else come in at this point. I hate even hearing about this border crises now because it’s literately a lost cause. When Vietnam was invaded it didn’t matter to them who the hell you were. Step in their country trying to take shit from them they whooped your ass and made you leave.

      Not to mention whenever they were invaded the Vietnamese ALWAYS banned together and fought hard as hell to protect their way of life, they weren’t about to let anybody take Vietnam from them, NOBODY. You don’t see that ass kicking attitude or mentality among Americans at all.

      Even their kids were willing to fight you to the death I’ve seen the images on the web of Vietnamese child soldiers. Even if they had to drop a grenade in your pants to let you know you picked a fight and invaded the country of the wrong people, they were serious about defending their nation against any and all invading forces. And while I don’t know much about Vietnam I know for a fact they defended their turf against anyone that invaded and won every fight and now today Vietnam is still for the Vietnamese vs being another multicultural hell hole where people have no identity or loyalty to their own nation. America is a nation govern by traitorous assholes obsessed with slavery and abuse of it’s own citizens.

      One of the major reasons why I respect the Vietnamese is because they didn’t tolerate that invasion shit. I don’t know how they would be today if it were to happen to them again if modern day Vietnamese have the same fighting spirit as the old Vietnamese of the past that fought the French, the US, Japanese, etc. But I do admire them for successfully defending their home turf vs giving it up or allowing themselves to get colonized even though they still became conquered by communism anyway.

      In America it’s like we sit around and let it happen to us because we’re afraid of the consequences of fighting back. Fight back and you get arrested. And I feel that this is the main reason most Americans won’t try to step up and really fight. Fear of being arrested. They made sure of this when they used the J6 scenario as a lesson sent to the people what they’ll do if anyone challenged them despite they set the whole thing up themselves just to show what would really happen if an insurrection took place.

      I just don’t see any uprising coming though, There’s really nowhere to go to and wait it out either and I’m really against the idea of running off to another country. I’m seeing the same incident happen to Europe with the horde of negros and Muslims invading them but the people just stand and take it because they are told its “racist” if they resist. I truly do feel that they are going to succeed at eliminating a vast majority of whites from the U.S. and even Europe as well.

      • JohnAZ February 6, 2024 at 10:08 am #

        Vietnam

        Post WW2 paranoia.

        Actually started before WW2.

        When the Japanese invaded Manchuria, the US played its Big Daddy role and cut the supply of Dutch Shell Oil to Japan from SE Asia. Pearl Harbor ensued in response.

        Japan never stood a chance. When they capitulated, they withdrew from everywhere they conquered, including SE Asia. French Indonesia tried to fill the power vacuum, again oil. Dien Bien Phu ended that quickly being fought by nationalist forces under Ho Chi Minh. Well, you know the USA and its protection for oil supplies. SEATO (South East ASia Treaty Organization) was formed with South Viet Nam as a member. A guy named Diem was titular leader of the South. Like everywhere else, we backed this guy, who was a bum. This is JFK time. He started to put advisors into Nam to school the South Vietnamese army. Like always, corruption took over the military support and eventually the people had enough of the Diem corruption and threw him out. This is when those Buddhist monks set themselves on fire in protest. Anyway, Kennedy eventually wanted to withdraw troops and some believe this is why the CIA had him assassinated.

        LBJ pulled off the Tonkin Gulf Incident, a phony attack on US ships. Off we went, hundreds of thousands of US troops to fight an enemy in guerrilla warfare. It peaked in 1968, TET offensive, and 1972, the bombing of Laos and Cambodia under Nixon. I was in the Navy and spent five months off Quang Tri and Hue doing gunfire support and plane guarding for carriers.

        Just like all actions since, we never tried to win, just throw armament at the Viet Cong then the North Vietnamese. It became a war culture, like they always do. CBS actually reported killed and injured every night. The military became a large power in DC. Nixon’s action in 1972 was a final frustration to try to win the war, his legs were cut off under him by Congress who cut off the funds. Kissinger used the Paris Peace Talks in 1973 to withdraw the American forces and “turn over the war” to the South Vietnamese, who were prepared to defend themselves. NOT! They collapsed in weeks and the pictures of the last of the Americans and loyal Vietnamese leaving off rooftops in helicopters are famous. The Domino theory was underway, only it never happened.

        Robert McNamara, many years later, admitted that the Vietnam debacle was a failure. A leak in DC, The Pentagon Papers, also showed the corruption that supported the war.

        So, I hope you can see the horrible way that Vietnam was fought. About the only good thing was the elimination of the draft.

        If it sounds familiar, Afghanistan, you are right on the mark. The pictures of the Afghan withdrawal were so eerily similar to 1973.

        We will never learn. War is NOT, repeat NOT, a political exercise. It is the elimination of one people by another, otherwise it is useless. War is a final solution, elimination of another culture to be replaced by yours.

        The USA has been foolish, dumb, corrupted, ever since WW2. We will never learn.

        • JohnAZ February 6, 2024 at 10:18 am #

          Israel is not so stupid, they will eliminate the Hamas contingent of the Gaza folks. Eliminate!!! No cease fires, no political solutions. If Hezbollah tries anything, they are next.

          They have learned through repeated betrayals of cease fire after cease fire, that the enemies just keep coming back.

          No more. Something the US has not figured out yet.

          Maybe if our enemy threatened our elimination, our genocide, we would fight wars to final conclusions, like Israel. Of course, if we did that the MIC would run out of things to do.

          Truthseeker, what do you think? Do you think the USA is a monster? No not the USA, the Deep State.

          • Jarek February 6, 2024 at 12:44 pm #

            Hezbollah crushed the Israelis before and may do so again.

            Remember “Israel” is just Delaware. In itself it can do very little. It’s because the Jews control the United States and its resources (because of fools like you) that they can stay there at all.

        • TruthSeeker1986 February 6, 2024 at 11:14 am #

          @JohnAZ I appreciate you going into further detail and elaborating on this more. A very exciting read I re-read it twice. Because it’s even more interesting to know about this kind of stuff from someone who’s been there or have a whole lot more knowledge on the subject matter. I’ve only seen images, pics, read a few articles here and there and so I was really impressed with the Vietnamese determination to defend their home.

          And everyone was part of it, men, women, kids they were that serious about protecting what was theirs. But even though the draft is gone….I feel it’ll come back soon. I’m 37, probably too old for it but who the hell knows. I just know if they tried to force me, I’d probably swallow a bunch of sleeping pills vs fighting for a bunch of people who hate my damn country and think I’m going to kill to make their sorry corrupted POS asses wealthier than they already are. But you are totally right about how horrible war is. The problem is the Neocons love it, as long as they never have to fight one themselves. They’ll keep America involved in wars forever.

      • SoftStarLight February 6, 2024 at 10:40 am #

        Yes, I get it. Well, the political Left conquered the United States a long time ago. For example, the Left were the winners of the Civil War. So the US has been a fully Left dominated system for at least 170 years and the system has been Marxist for like at least 70 years. That is how the population was transformed from settlers and pioneers into people living in pens in fear of their own shadows.

        Two, Vietnamese all look the same. Lol, I mean it is true for the most part. You can’t say the same about Americans. And at this point in time there is almost no point in using the term Americans because who does that even describe or what does it mean anymore other than a descriptor of people living within the territory of the US. This is why people living in the US have fallen back to using ethnic descriptors like white, black, hispanic, etc. The school cafeteria is not the clique. The clique is the clique.

        • TruthSeeker1986 February 6, 2024 at 11:19 am #

          @SoftStarLight lol you said all Vietnamese people look the same, I’d say that just about anyone who is of the same ethnicity. The Japanese look the same as do the Chinese but I honestly have had a hard time telling them apart from each other. The Japanese, Chinese, and Koreans all look identically alike especially the women.

          Korean women look even more closer to Japanese women than Chinese women do which is why Koreans blend in very well in Japanese society. But when the Ukraine refugees started flooding into certain European countries, they weren’t happy about this at all. Just because they were Caucasian didn’t mean those Europeans wanted them there. I forget which country it was where Ukraines weren’t exactly welcomed. But the point I’m trying to make here is that Vietnam was willing to do whatever it took to avoid being colonized and conquered. As for the U.S. American would just be implying to people who were born in the United States.

          • SoftStarLight February 6, 2024 at 11:35 am #

            I think the Japanese actually migrated into the islands from Korea a long time ago. That may explain some it at least. Maybe you are thinking of Ireland? I remember hearing about a big protest over the fact that there were more Ukrainians relocated to an Irish village than there were Irish villagers. But yeah I know what you mean. It is disappointing that people don’t seem to have a lot of fight in them over something as important as their home.

            @SoftStarLight

            It’s fear of getting called “racist” I think Caucasian people fear that word more than anything these days. And it’s quite pathetic really. I mean if blacks colonized a country full of people do you think years from now they will give a damn about it? Will they feel guilty over this? No, but I’m seeing the guilt trip being used even on people who have never colonized anyone. The Japanese get slandered and called “racist” too for not having open borders.

            At first they were even against gay marriage until some leftist dickhead from the United States went to Tokyo and started harassing and abusing the people there and forced them to cave to it. They tried the same shit in Africa but failed miserably, they told them point blank to their faces “We dont’ want faggotry in Africa.” For some reason everyone else cave to leftist and let them out right get away with pushing shit on them.

          • SoftStarLight February 6, 2024 at 12:15 pm #

            Yes, Africans are not pushovers that’s for sure. Maybe everybody needs a little bit of African in them lol. At least the tude right? I do understand what you mean. Most people want to be seen as the reasonable, accommodating, nice people. Problem is that kindness is often seen as weakness. And many people don’t want to deal with layers. So you can be nice but still be adamant. But that takes effort. So part of it is sheer laziness too.

            I read that also, SSL. Some Japanese immigrated to Korea and pretty much took over. The original inhabitants were pushed to the margins, but I couldn’t tell you where.

            Same with Taiwan. The losing Chinese moved there after the revolution and pushed the natives to the margins there.

        • TruthSeeker1986 February 6, 2024 at 12:11 pm #

          Let me also state they told them they will kill and arrest LBGTQ people. That’s how super serious the Africans are about that stuff being forced on them by leftist, and the leftist haven’t been there ever since to push it on them aggressively either. The same thing with Muslims, they get bitten when they try to force stuff on them. It’s only the Whites and some Asians that surrender and give in to far left bullying of any and every kind like they simply have to just because some turd face troll called them racist or a bigot.

      • Jarek February 6, 2024 at 12:39 pm #

        Or look at Afghanistan: They have destroyed one White army after another. You can occupy all you like – you will never make them doubt themselves and thus you will never defeat them in the long run.

        They love themselves and aim to keep what is theirs. We believed our treacherous Mullahs (the media) when they said that Indians were the Native Americans and not us. Everything was good, right? No, then brought up the logical corollary to the premise: Whites are living on stolen land. So Whites accepted that too. Everything is great again, right? No, the corollary to the second premise is that Whites need to get off the land they stole.

        Indians have nothing to do with America. They were in our way. They got moved. End of story.

          So what I thought to do is add those BBQ peanuts (instead of pine nuts) to the hummus that I’ve been meaning to make. At the end of it, I am hoping that I have a nice subtle spicy BBQ nutty hummus at the end of it to dip some tacos or pita or whatever in it.

        • Blackbird February 6, 2024 at 6:00 pm #

          Jars, Afghanis are white too. The two largest ethnic groups, Pashtuns and Tajiks – over two-thirds of the population – are ethnic Iranians. The official languages of Iran, Dari and Pashto, are in the Indo-European language family. Iranians – as you well know – are the original “Aryans”. Like us, they descended from those wild horse lords of the western steppes.

          Now if you had said that the Afghanis destroyed every European army that attempted to subjugate them, well, I wouldn’t have had to write this comment. Although the Russian armies have long included many non-white soldiers – Turks, Mongols, etc., Russian culture has always been primarily European.

          The Afghan wars have been white-on-white violence, something at which we seem to excel.

            I grant you that the original Persians may have been White or very close. You can still see it in some of the Tajiks. The average Iranian? No. The average Afghan, hell no.

            Russian troops are already persecuted by non-Russian soldiers, either Muslim or Central Asian. It’s not working. And it’s not going to work anymore than it worked here. The Russians have learned nothing from the tragedy of the West. Such is Man, a fallen being.

          • Jarek February 6, 2024 at 11:00 pm #

            I admire the ferocity and tenacity of the Pashtuns and their incredible love of their land and people. And some of them have a striking beauty.

            I don’t know much about the more Mongol types of the North. And there are a lot of mongrel types around. All of them have a low IQ and an propensity for extreme violence, like most Muslims groups. Islam suits these people very well.

            As the Taliban commander turned president said, We never promised them any of these things (democracy, women rights, etc). We promised them Islamic Law. Under Islamic law, raping Islamic women is forbidden. How’s that for rights? That’s real. Other women are fair game as Western Europe has found out.

          • Blackbird February 7, 2024 at 5:51 pm #

            Tsk tsk Jars. North Caucasians are not members of the Indo-European language family. They are an isolated ethnic group with no known close relatives, inhabiting the Caucasus since long before the Aryans slammed into those mountains.
            They are not descendants of the nomadic horse warriors of the western steppe, who domesticated the horse and invented the wheel. They are not descendants of the Aryans or the Andronovo culture, or whatever you want to call our source population.

            Iranians do not act like “us” largely because they have been Islamicized. The Spaniards have been similarly affected, but not to as great an extent as they pushed out Islam after 700 years. However, they retained traces of Islamic culture – the whole macho thing and harsh dictatorial governance.

            The majority of Italians, Greeks, and other southern Europeans have dark hair and eyes like the majority of the Iranians. That doesn’t make them any less descendants of the Aryans. In fact, the Germanic peoples may have gotten their blonde hair and blue eyes by interbreeding with the non-Aryan, non-Indo-European speaking Finnic populations (the blondest of the blond) – thereby diluting their Aryan “blood”.

            A lot of green and blue eyes in Afghanistan. Where is the epicanthic fold that would make them Asian? Where are the features that would make them African? Sure there has been some Turkic and Mongol admixture over the centuries – the same can be said of the Slavs. But the Iranians, Afghans, Slavs – white Indo-Europeans.

            The different breeds of dogs act differently because they are different genetically. Upbringing matters. The unique traits can be modified, enhanced, or ignored. But they will out.

            The Iranians are a different breed now, whatever they were to begin with.

            There you go again JarJar, telling people (in this case, me – again) what they think.

            How wrong you are! (Again…)

            I don’t think people are born as blank slates. I have never said that or anything that could be reasonably misconstrued as that. I have made the point frequently that genetics and upbringing work together to form both individuals and ethnic groups.

            Iranians – the ethnic group, not just citizens of Iran – share more genetics with Europeans than they do with the neighboring Turks and Semites. Like the Turks and (most) Semites, they have adopted Islam – a cultural trait that differentiates them from most Europeans.

            But I understand you have to beat your ideological drum, so bang away.

        Yeah I wish I could find something on it. I did see where he was performing during the pandemic in venues that required vaxx certificates and masks and distancing for unvaxxed. So I think it is very possible. He might have done it thinking it could be trusted and also because he was traveling a lot.

            A lot of people took the Vaxx in order to keep their jobs. Most people are in no position to loose their source of income, particularly when they have family to support.

            I expect an even higher rate of grudging acceptance once “Disease X” is rolled out, especially with the draconian measures promised by the WHO’s soon-to-be ratified Pandemic Treaty.

            Then let them do it, my mother didn’t get vaxxed at all and she still kept her job. But then again she’s also extremely good friends with her boss. Her boss at one point was homeless and had to live in her car with her 8 year old daughter. There’s no way in hell she was going to push some Vax bullshit on her employees knowing the kind of suffering she endured in the past herself.

            Now my cousin he went and got vaxxed because everyone else at his job was doing it. Then it scared the hell out of him when it started doing stuff to his body. He wasn’t able to work anymore for months, and even suffered some brain issues because of the vax…I don’t think anyone else in my family got vaxxed besides one of my cousins.

      What the fuck are you talking about?

      The media didn’t ‘freak out’ when Drumpf met Putin. The ‘freak out’, as you describe it, was about Drumpf’s sickening toadying up to the most corrupt authoritarian head of state we’ve seen in living memory.

      If “our ‘blob’ is soooooo corrupt”, how do you think things operate in that nirvana of capitalism, Russia?

      It is truly amazing (to me at least) just how successful the Russian psyop that started in 2015 when Drumpf declared.

      Since then, the Belarusian ‘bot farms have been working overtime on all the social media platforms, convincing once sane Americans (and Brits, Aussies & NZers) that Putin is the good guy and the USA apparatus – which has held the world together since 1945 – is the bad guy. What the ACTUAL fuck?

      True, The USA is far from perfect. Western Civ is far from perfect, but why burn the whole house down and with it the most robust protections humans have ever – EVER – enjoyed in our long patchy history? If you find yourself a ‘purist’ who is willing to let the quest for perfection be the enemy of the good, then have a long hard look at what you stand to lose.

      I saw that press conference at Helsinki in 2017. The press was absolutely disgusting.

      Trump and Putin gave statements, and Putin emphasized the importance of renewing the nuclear treaty about to expire, I think it was the SALT Treaty.

      Putin was his usual rational, calm and focused self, talking about matters of actual great importance to the entire world.

      Then they opened for questioning and some deranged lunatic, I think from AP, tried to get Trump to denounce Putin for stealing the election for him. And he insisted that the entire world needed to hear it. (Much more important than nuclear war, you see.)
      Are you fucking kidding me? Why would Trump do that?

      Only braindead shitlibs would think it would be appropriate at an important summit meeting for Trump to “confess” that he wasn’t actually the legit president and it was all the fault of Putin, so therefore Trump should denounce him.

      Braindead Shitlibs.

      To this day, the media insists that Trump was wrong not to confess he stole the election and blame Putin. It doesn’t matter that this is an insane assertion.

      This is the same media that supports throwing people in jail without trial for saying that the Dems stole the 2020 election.

      Only braindead shitlibs would believe them.

      • Mike Sherman February 7, 2024 at 5:49 pm #

        “This is the same media that supports throwing people in jail without trial for saying that the Dems stole the 2020 election.

        No one is in jail because they said the 2020 election was stolen. That’s your right to SAY that until the proverbial cows come home.

        No. What these people are in jail for is quite simple – they have either pled guilty to, or are awaiting trial on, charges of violence against the police and/or damage to public (that is to say, YOUR) property.

        Shit smeared over the walls of the Capitol, police bear-sprayed and beaten up by all these loyal ‘patriotic’ adherents to MAGA, which claims to be the party of ‘law’n’order’.

    A DC appeals court has ruled that President Trump does not have immunity in the 2020 elections case. The next step is a potential appeal to the Supreme Court. Some people say if Presidents have no immunity while acting in official capacity then President Obama could be charged with war crimes, as an example. I seriously doubt it works that way but its a good point. It would be really lively to see mass convoys of farmers spraying manure at courthouses lol.

    • OG February 6, 2024 at 11:45 am #

      It works exactly like that, SSL. President Trump is claiming that he has immunity because he was POTUS at the time. If the Supreme Court rules against his appeal then precedence has been set and then each and every POTUS can be held legally accountable for their crimes in the highest office in the union.

        President Trump declared that he would remove “Joe Biden” as POTUS “in less than five months” about four months ago. This seemingly strange declaration’s timeline coincided with a March 4, 2024 inauguration.

        I was so sure back then (pre 10/7) that he’d be POTUS once again on March 4 that I agreed, on this board, with the Big Kahuna to “eat my hat” if President Trump’s words were not fulfilled by the end of March 4.

When the ice came they tried to fly through space back to their own world, but their wings had atrophied. So they were stuck, mocked by their servants, the shogoths. Don’t even ask. Neither was human in the physical sense. But the Old Ones were beings with a soul. Not so their servants.

          @Mike Sherman

          I don’t think anyone here is crazy, people here discuss things that are important to me, and most people my age or younger don’t care about real world problems. Sooner or later they will eventually because times are changing in a very different way, and long gone are the days when I just brush stuff off because I hate political matters. When 9/11 happened I barely even noticed it. I remember the teacher was playing it all day on tv and I just slept in class like I didn’t care.

          I was barely even aware the U.S. invaded Iraq at the time. But after what happened in Oct 7th I started becoming more and more involved on the web. Last year all that war stuff was making me very sick and depressed…

          I remember some video I saw on youtube where some Ex-Hamas leader declared The Day Of Jihad where he was instructing Islamic groups to carry out terror attacks On October 10th I believe which was my birthday. So I was paranoid as hell, and there were a lot of people all over the U.S. getting out their guns like they were ready to fight Terrorist. It was insane. But I feel that the video was probably just fake propaganda created by the Jews to make people think something was going to happen but it didn’t happen. Either way I use this site to blow off steam sometimes. At one point I was just reading Paul Craig Roberts or the comments over on American thinker.

      Lucifer’s Chosen use their nukes as blackmail. If the Goyim ever got out of hand and Israel’s existence was seriously in danger, they will lob those nukes to Europe and Russia.

      I doubt even Israel has a long range ballistic missile that can reach the U.S. But, you can be certain the Jews have a Plan B for that. They will put one of those nukes on a false-flagged cargo ship, sail it into New York Harbor, and detonate it. They have enough “friends” in high places to order that the ship not be stopped or checked. Sort of like how the Twin Towers security conveniently looked the other way while questionable work crews were installing the thermite explosives to bring them down..

        @JimInFlorida GETS IT!

        One thing: the Israelis don’t have to nuke the US, though now, I understand they have submarines that can.
         
        In the 70s, the Israelis’ plan was to be able to attack the USSR. In turn, the USSR would retaliate against Israel’s enabler–the USA.

        Seymour Hersh’ wrote a book about the Israeli nuclear program, aptly named

        “The Samson Option”

        If I can’t have my way, I take down everyone.

        Your post made my afternoon–it’s always encouraging to see people who “get it”.

            Blue: conventional consensus lies
            Red: The Truth

            These form a pair

            Black: Pessimism. Worst case scenario. Truth seeker’s pov.

            White: Sanguine. Everything’s going to work out.

            Thus the red pill naturally aligns with the black pill. And blue with white.

            I can’t help that I’m a bit blackpilled…..Sometimes the Red Pill feels a lot like the Blue pill to me. Plus I’m caught in between feeling like giving up and still fighting back. So I’m not entirely Black pilled.

            Red pill -= the truth huh.

            And when is it exactly that you know you have the truth?

            Everything being told from both sides is a steaming heap of horse shit.
            We know for a fact the left lies non-stop.
            We know for a fact the right lies a good portion of the time.

        ….That’s scary as shit man….And yet people in this country are so obsessed with worshipping them. Get mad and angry then call people antisemite whenever they don’t glorify them….I knew the Jewish Elite were horrible but I didn’t think they would go that far…..

      • The Man They Call Zazelle February 6, 2024 at 4:55 pm #

        One problem with nukes seems to be that they don’t do well in a conventional and/or asymmetric war context, like a hoard of ants overpowering a much larger adversary T

        Nukes are ‘large-scale and centralized’, like the State, like the (failed?) State of Israel.

        • TruthSeeker1986 February 6, 2024 at 5:28 pm #

          What do you mean @The Man They Call Zazelle
          Please elaborate more on this because I am really interested about all of this. I mean yeah Nukes are large-scale but look how willing the U.S. was during World War II when they wanted Japan to surrender. They hit them twice with those weapons, and it scared them so much Japan became America’s bitch for life after it was over and done with it.

          And today I still have reason to believe the Japanese fears America. That’s why they are willing to kiss their ass an do whatever they want them to. Hell I heard in 2020 they even let that Marxist group BLM march in Tokyo and shit.

          That’s how terrified the Japanese are of America and will even let them out right disrespect their culture all because of that one incident from years and years ago shook them up and scared them for life…Now just imagine if Israel hit a bunch of countries with nukes that are ten times worse than what was used on Japan…. How will these nations respond to that? Will they just fault and blame America because they kiss Israel’s ass? Or will everyone gang up on Israel and kick their teeth in for what they did? Or will the world just fear Israel and start doing whatever they want from now on like Japan does when America blows it’s dog whistle?

          • BackRowHeckler February 6, 2024 at 6:32 pm #

            TS I think Israel’s nukes are mostly tactical. Oh they can do some damage but not like the massive strategic thermo nuclear warheads the US & Russia have in their arsenals.

          • RUfuckinKidding? February 6, 2024 at 7:15 pm #

            Only one way to find out for sure, I guess!

          • TruthSeeker1986 February 6, 2024 at 7:28 pm #

            @BackRowHeckler

            But how would you know what kind of nuclear weapons they have? I have heard some people say Israel had no such weapons because they never really admitted to owning them. And then some people have claimed Israel has over 300 of these weapons in their possession. Regardless I think anyone who is willing to use a nuclear weapon would simply do it and not care what the end results will be.

            I honestly missed the days when people fought with swords and shields….. It’s gotten to the point now where many nations feel they need to have weapons of mass destruction that can take out entire cities if they ever got launched…Even one set off by mistake could cause a nation to retaliate and assume it was done on purpose.

          • TruthSeeker1986 February 6, 2024 at 7:31 pm #

            @BackRowHeckler

            Plus, Kim is always threatening to use them… He’s probably one of the only people I can think of that’s desperately itching to use a nuclear weapon on someone considering the number of test he’s already had with them. These people are garbage. And from what I read, Africa is the only place that once had these weapons but disabled all of theirs. Why can’t these other places do the damn same?

          • TruthSeeker1986 February 6, 2024 at 7:41 pm #

            @BackRowHeckler

            My guess is they were probably afraid of the responsibility of having these weapons, maybe they didn’t trust themselves with them in their possession and decided to disable them. But I don’t see anyone else choosing to remove their nuclear arsenal and just go back to conventional methods of warfare without relying on them.

            There are treaty’s in place regarding these weapons but I feel that this can be easily ignored.

          • BackRowHeckler February 6, 2024 at 9:43 pm #

            TS I don’t know exactly how many nuclear weapons Israel possesses, or which type. Israel keeps the world guessing.

            I do find it interesting that Israel’s nuclear weapons program operated in partnership with the Republic of South Africa. South Africa gave up its nukes, and then gave up its country. Israelis have seen what happened to the Boers & Afrikkaners when they lost their homeland to ‘hostis humani generis’; they don’t intend to go down the same path themselves.

          • TruthSeeker1986 February 6, 2024 at 9:59 pm #

            @BackRowHeckler

            But aren’t a lot of nations going through this right now? People giving up their nations? Italy, France, Sweden, Germany, etc all going through full blown open border invasions.

          • Paula D February 7, 2024 at 2:05 pm #

            I don’t think that Japan is America’s bitch because of the bomb, I think it’s because of the multiple military bases the US occupies in their country.

            Same as Germany. The US didn’t use the bomb on them, since they had already surrendered, but they are craven stooges of the US, because the US still occupies their country, 80 some years after the war ended.

            Imagine having your “ally” blow up the gas pipelines that your entire country depends upon, and not having the courage to even acknowledge it!

            That is some craven groveling, right there.

          What do you mean @The Man They Call Zazelle” ~ TruthSeeker1986

          AKAIK, nukes have only been used once in a war context– on Japan. I think their use is essentially for sabre-rattling/fear-mongering and (so) controlling people.

          So why are they not being used now? Why only ‘conventional’? The’ve had a lot of time since Japan.

          One word probably; ‘outrageous’. Their actual use would be sociologically, ethically and environmentally outrageous.

          Unsure about ‘tactical nukes’, though. I’d have to do some homework. Maybe you can for us and report back.
          However, there are issues WRT spent uranium and I’ve read of possible cases of higher incidences of birth defects in areas where they’ve been used. If true, nothing like a bomb that keeps on bombing. That’s outrageous, too, if true.

          • The Man They Call Zazelle February 7, 2024 at 10:46 pm #

            Just to clarify:

            I am not equivalencing tactical nukes with ‘classical’ nukes nor spent uranium munitions.

        “Sort of like how the Twin Towers security conveniently looked the other way while questionable work crews were installing the thermite explosives to bring them down..” ~ JimInFlorida2.0

        Yes Jim – a front company named AMEC Construction installed the thermite charges on the core structural columns in the central core elevator shafts. The elevator shafts were alternatively shut down “for maintenance”, weeks prior to 9/11.

        The thermite charges capable of developing heat of up to 4500F, burned through the steel columns, allowing the buildings to freefall vertically into their own footprints – classic example of a controlled demolition.

        Jet fuel – burning in an open air, oxygen rich environment – develops about 1800F, not hot enough to melt steel. Thermite did the trick. Pools of molten steel in the basements sort of gave it away, along with vast amounts of other indisputable evidence.

        • The Man They Call Zazelle February 7, 2024 at 10:51 pm #

          Despite that, did people actually get trapped in the buildings with some ending up falling from them?

          • Ron Anselmo February 8, 2024 at 2:37 am #

            Yes and yes, Zazzy. First responders were traumatized by the sound of falling bodies impacting the ground around them. Some falling, some jumped. Unimaginable. All for oil.

            Zazzy – if by anarchy, you mean nonrecognition of authority, or self-governance, I’m with you. I don’t suffer from – but embrace ODD – oppositional defiance disorder – probably the posterchild.

            There’s a very fine line between competent authority and incompetent authority – I don’t trust the former, much less the latter. None are the boss of me.

          • The Man They Call Zazelle February 8, 2024 at 11:34 pm #

            Good to know, Ron, and it’s encouraging.

            It seems people do have lines that cannot be crossed as the so-called elites or social-engineer wannabes appear to be increasingly discovering, if some recent articles and news items are any indication.

            Authority, when it is legitimate, seems fine, whereas authority based on imposition and the like is a line crossed for many, if not most.

    King Chuck has caught the cancer, but does not disclose its nature, except to note that it’s not prostatic. My bet is either bladder or some form of leukemia. It’s a shame. Best of luck to him. I’m American, and the British class system looks disgusting to me, but I find the continuity of the British monarchy comforting, for some reason. Especially when more volatile forms of government are thinking up new ways to poke us all in the eye, every day.

    • SoftStarLight February 6, 2024 at 3:46 pm #

      Kesa is also fond of the monarchy structure of government. I personally don’t prefer it but I do like that the monarchies get to have beautiful dynasties replete with intrigue and soap operas. It wouldn’t hurt a Republic to have some of that you know.

      I saw a post last night on X suggesting that King Chuck may not have anything. He is simply being tried by a secretive court prosecuting global child traffickers and war criminals. This same post suggested that Hillary Clinton and Tom Hanks have already been executed and the folks walking around pretending to be them are clones maintaining a normie reality until the whistle is blown.

          The clash between me and Kesa was always at the surface, never at the heart. She occasionally bristled at my longings for an egalitarian peoples revolution and how I pretzeled myself to accommodate that with the idea of a single strongman ruler with a fist of iron. But I do truly love that sentiment. Everyone wants to be included and as much as it can possibly be i do wish it so.
