The World Economic Forum (WEF), a.k.a. the Davos Gang, held its 2022 schmoozefest in that tidy Swiss alpine village last week, after a nearly three-year hiatus on account of the coronavirus pandemic they generously arranged for the rest of us. These are the self-defined leaders of the Great Re-set — Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, and Klaus’s scaly majordomo, Dr. Yuval Noah Harari, the inverse reincarnation of Adolf Eichmann, famous for declaring that “humans are hackable animals.” Did he mean, like, with a meat cleaver?

Who do these schnitzel-scarfing, Krug-guzzling punks think they are? Or, to paraphrase the immortal words of one Pete Hogwallop, who elected them boss of this outfit?

Nobody, that’s who, on this whole, wide, ever-turning world, which they literally aim to take over. Actually, from the way they talk, it already looks like they’ve hijacked the sucker and us “worthless” and “useless” humans on it, as Dr. Harari has labeled the multitudes riding the planet in economy class. Kind of looks like we’re in for a rough landing.

As first hallucinated in Herr Doktor Schwab’s pulsating brain, apparently many years ago, the Great Re-set was initially scheduled for 2050, a sort of leisurely stroll-in-the-park to the shimmering gates of transhumanism. Then the gang got nervous and pushed it up to 2030 (climate change, and all). When that retrograde monster of US politics, Donald Trump, came on the scene, they panicked and re-set their Re-set for 2023. Now, despite the surface decorum of this year’s Davos meet-up, it looks like they are — as we say here in the old New World — losing their shit.

How come? Well, for one thing, we appear to be in a close race between Klaus’s controlled demolition of the global economy and the US midterm elections this November, and perhaps the gang perceives that won’t go so well for them. Their key project in the 2022 offensive, the War in Ukraine, isn’t working out, either. The idea, it seems, was to bog down and humiliate the Russians so as to bring on the defenestration of Mr. Putin, who, believe it or not and despite the tsunamis of aspersion loosed on him by WEF-funded propagandists, is strangely and actually a defender of Western Civ. Yeah, I know, a stunner, right? (God works in mysterious ways — but the Davos Gangsters don’t believe in him / her / they.)

In their cuckoo clock universe, they are too busy counting the teeth on the gears inside because they are the “experts” and that’s what they do. Which brings us to one of the central fallacies of the mechanistic world-view: that if you measure enough things, you will be able to control them. Their beloved data is betraying them as it leaks out of the Pfizer vaults. They screwed-the-pooch on the Covid-19 caper and now the data is biting Klaus and Company on the ass. Especially Oberstleutnant Bill Gates’s ass, who was supposed to be in charge of the vaccine op and is jetting around the world now talking out of said cloacal aperture so recklessly that folks are looking to the lampposts of every country he lands in.

Hence, the desperate attempts at censorship by WEF stooges-in-place all around the world. And see how well that has gone, especially in the USA under WEF-installed “Joe Biden,” the cigar-store-Indian in executive drag, who fronts for a US wrecking-crew cabinet of oafs, losers, and reprobates. Has the world ever seen a more laughable official exercise than the botched appointment of one Nina Jankowicz, the Singing Censor, to the idiotically-conceived Disinformation Governance Board? They might as well have taken out a Jumbotron billboard ad in Times Square screaming Your GovernmentWe Suck in flashing psychedelic pixels.

And yet, that demolition of the global economy proceeds a’pace as, with all demolitions, once things start crashing, nothing will stop it. Supply chains for everything are breaking, with sneaky ramifications. For instance, the ammonia-based chemical additive for diesel fuel used to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions from trucks is getting scarce. New EPA rules require computerized sensors in truck engines that register nitrogen oxide levels. If they are too high, the sensors automatically cut the engine. Result: trucks stop running. Further result: nothing gets delivered. Furthest result: you starve.

The WEF worked on its starvation program from other angles, too. The Ukraine-Russian war was engineered to reduce the global wheat supply by a hefty cut, say around 30 percent, as well as to curtail fertilizer exports from the world’s main producers of them: Russia, Ukraine, Belarus. No khobz f’tir for you, peoples of North Africa! (And no Hostess Ding Dongs for you, peoples of Calumet Heights, Illinois!).

Meanwhile, recall the parting admonition of the late eminent virologist Luc Montagnier, discoverer of HIV, the virus behind AIDS, who just prior to his death predicted that 100-percent of the people injected with mRNA Covid “vaccines” would be dead in two years. Yes, yes, pretty stark stuff, I know. But that was his professional opinion, and he was at the top of his profession. Forgive me for mentioning it, but there it is, like the proverbial turd in the punchbowl.

We’re in for all kinds of interesting surprises — those of us who survive this clusterfuck — but the biggest one of all will be the WEF’s Great Re-set falling on its aforesaid ass as, when the dust settles, their grandiose, totalitarian, and ultimately wicked model of the human project yields to the astounding re-enchantment of a world pregnant with meaning, purpose, and grace. I’m not kidding around. God may be a prankster, as I’ve suggested many times, but he’s also still God, and he doesn’t appreciate wannabe faux-messianic technocrat pricks like Klaus Schwab messing with his glorious creation.

    eminent virologist Luc Montagnier, discoverer of HIV, the virus behind AIDS, who, just prior to his death predicted that 100-percent of the people vaccinated with mRNA Covid “vaccines” would be dead in two years.

    I hope that he is wrong.
    Time [12 months worth?] will be all we need to know if billions are dead.

    • Penelope Dreadful May 30, 2022 at 10:11 am #

      100% sounds high, particularly within 2 years. But say it was only 25% of the jabbed croaked. Can you imagine the howls of the Woke on the Left Coast and right coast as they realized how their deaths would tilt politics to the right??? It would seem logical that more Lefties than Bitter Clingers would die, since the holdouts are mostly troglodytes like myself. Heck, even New York could turn into a Red State.

      • malthuss May 30, 2022 at 10:23 am #

        If 4% of White males in USA, age 20-50 die in a year, USA collapses.

          I am thinking that Wall Street Bankers, Insurance agents, real estate agents, interior decorators and florists are not included in that 4%.

        At what point does a doomed person scuttle his stupid ideology, though? Imminent mortality often clarifies the mind and heart.

      • Socrates-Detroit May 30, 2022 at 10:44 am #

        :Penelope D, interesting observation.

        Perhaps that is the silver lining?

        Besides people who tend to value their personal freedom, or who tend to lean pro-Trump, African-Americans also tend to be less “vaxxed”.

        If enough Black Americans can wake up, and Montagniers prediction comes to pass, then yes, it could reorient the US politically.

        PD,
        Be that the circumstance, then there would be politics…by other means. It would not be civil, nor orderly.

      • Socrates-Detroit May 30, 2022 at 11:23 am #

        It’s pretty grim, even if it is only 10%.

        Time will tell.

        Many, most of the vaxxed are not zealots.

        And many of the people behind this mRNA plague, or in the Davos crowd, are NOT vaxxed.

        Look at the video of Trudeau getting jabbed.

        Does anyone here really think Bill Gates is jabbed?

        • GreenAlba May 30, 2022 at 1:34 pm #

          “Many, most of the vaxxed are not zealots.”

          Indeed. Thanks for pointing that out. 🙂 Many took a calculated punt, but without knowing that the odds were fixed.

          Certainly, in this country, people were lulled into a state of trust by almost three quarters of a century of having a national health system which ran, to a large extent, on the goodwill of its staff. The PTB took advantage of that, in my view, while people were placed at the top who were psychopaths. Even the mythology of Oxford’s ‘dreaming spires’ helped with the trust (apparently Sarah Gilbert and Andrew Hill, who led the Oxford-AZ team, are linked to the former British Eugenics Society, through Wellcome Trust or something – I forget the details).

          I listened to two whisleblowers (from last year) this morning – one an experienced care-home manager (not part of the NHS), one quite high up, on an NHS board. Both said the ethos just changed overnight with covid. There was one message, no questioning, and they were made to understand that if they even questioned the narrative they would be let go.

          I would love to see something ‘interesting’ happen to Bill Gates before I go. And he may be a fall guy at some point and get that sudden death syndrome that’s going around.

          Although ‘sudden’ would be rather too good for him. He needs to savour the sense of his mortality and knowing that the jig is up. Not that I’d want him garrotted in slow motion or anything, but a dose of some haemhorragic fever or other for a few distraught weeks would do. Or some of those Egyptian plagues, confined to wherever he lives.

          • Night Owl May 30, 2022 at 4:17 pm #

            “Sarah Gilbert and Andrew Hill, who led the Oxford-AZ team, are linked to the former British Eugenics Society, through Wellcome Trust […]”

            Stuff like this is what one uncovers when one truly takes the time to look at who is behind all of this.

            This is also the kind of stuff that people need to look at more closely. There is a long history of eugenics in the Anglo-American establishment, and it’s demons have been quite busy in the shadows over the past few decades.

            When one begins to realize the size of the web, and the extent of the corruption in our institutions, the world becomes a very different place.

          • hmuller May 30, 2022 at 5:19 pm #

            Hello GA. Glad to see the flame of righteous anger growing within you. I mean, when we judge the Rulers of the Earth, we’re not looking at mere self-serving, petty grifters in the Biden money suitcase tradition.
            We see truly malicious murderers, war makers, enslavers, child molesters, the vilest haters of humanity. They delight in harming the innocent who never threatened them.
            This is why we call them satanic (whether the old fellow is real or mythical), they have embodied his agenda as their own.

          • GreenAlba May 31, 2022 at 6:09 pm #

            Hello HM. Good to see you back – you seemed to go quiet for quite a long time. II trust all is well with you and yours.

            I think righteous anger is probably pipped by frustration. I’m mostly getting nowhere in persuading anyone of anything. I’ve lost a friend of 30 years, and I think another couple of less close friends from work may be ignoring me because I told them what happened to my husband after his booster, and also sent them a link about our former employer being sued by Peter McCullough for withdrawing a vaxx-induced myocarditis paper he co-authored, without his permission or that of the journal editor.

            I think by the time I succumb to whatever I’m going to succumb to, there will be about 4 people at my funeral. 🙂

            I only know 3 people who know what’s going on, and only one of them is a proper friend, whom I don’t see that often anyway. It’s like living in an asylum, with only the occasional look out the window to speak to someone sane!

          • Redneck Liberal June 1, 2022 at 6:49 am #

            GA…yes.

            I remain respectful of your intelligence and acuity, though we no longer see the same reality. I’m sorry to hear about your loss of your social group, in real life.

            However, you now have the CFN community. You’ve chosen it.

          • GreenAlba June 1, 2022 at 2:56 pm #

            Do me a favour and don’t patronise me, Redneck. I wouldn’t be your deluded self if it brought me 100 new friends a day.

            The thought of dying duped, like you, is not attractive. The loneliness of the long-distance truth-teller is just the way it is, and the price to be paid by many for not settling for the Kool-Aid, like yourself.

          • GreenAlba June 1, 2022 at 4:22 pm #

            BTW, Redneck, did I do wrong by telling those two friends (in passing, in a WhatsApp message) that my husband had collapsed unconscious a week after his booster, and was hospitalised (and is still being followed up by a cardiologist) or in telling them the surely slightly intriguing news that our former employer was being sued for withdrawing an already-published, peer-reviewed paper on post-vaxx myocarditis. Or both?

            I didn’t mention that it was over the head of the protesting journal editor, just as the decision was about to be made on ‘vaccinating’ 12-15 year olds, because it was just a short message, but that was true too.

            Do you not consider these things normal subjects of conversation with friends you used to work with in the same publishing house? Would your friends freak out if you told them either of those two things? I’m confused. If a friend told me either of those things I’d be curious, at the very least. The idea that I’d avoid them after it is completely bizarre. But they are both very, very brainwashed, so there’s that.

          • Redneck Liberal June 1, 2022 at 4:58 pm #

            GA, you’re down the Rabbit Hole. Sorry if you found that post patronising. Enjoy.

          • GreenAlba June 1, 2022 at 4:59 pm #

            Can you try to be honest and answer the question, please, Redneck?

          • GreenAlba June 1, 2022 at 5:06 pm #

            Also, Redneck, you mentioned that I’d ‘chosen’ CFN. I’ve been reading CFN for more years than I can remember. The more intriguing question would be why have you chosen to hang around CFN, totally unable to leave, when you are the only one on here who is still drinking the Kool-Aid, and obliged to talk out of your backside, because your head is so deep in the sand.

            Is that offensive? Sorry.

          • Redneck Liberal June 1, 2022 at 6:36 pm #

            You yourself have often refused to answer “questions” deliver via the tried & true Gish Gallop, so there’s that…

            However, you DO ask an answerable question – as to why I continue to frequent this online lunatic asylum.

            As I’ve said many times (because I’ve been asked that many times) I find it useful to stay current with what the CTNJ community is convincing itself, collectively, in these perilous times. This place is probably a fair microcosm of that, and one gets to observe the evolution of the craziness, up close.

            Besides, the obscene amount of money I get from George Soros is impossible to turn down.

          • GreenAlba June 1, 2022 at 7:27 pm #

            That was disingenuous, Redneck, even for you.

            Tell me which bit of my question was too complicated and I try to give you a ‘for dummies’ version of it.

            Are you seriously saying that a question with two parts to it is, for you, a gish gallop? I’d have thought most people could manage that at age 12. Not you, then?

          • GreenAlba June 1, 2022 at 7:39 pm #

            OK, since you’re being dishonest, Redneck (and not for the first time), here’s my best attempt to put the two questions in a format that you might be able to cope with.

            (1) Imagine your wife collapsed after her booster, was hospitalised, made to take time of work, and is now being followed up by a cardiologist.

            Q: Would you feel you had to keep this a secret in order to keep your friends?

            (You can answer this one first, before you get confused by part 2.)

            (2) Imagine that you are friends with people from your former job, which happened to be the biggest medical and scientific publisher in the world. You find out that your former employer is being sued (for reasons already mentioned).

            Q: Would you feel this intriguing discovery should also not be mentioned, for you to keep your friends?

            Is that still too hard?

          • GreenAlba June 1, 2022 at 7:42 pm #

            There are a couple of typos in there, in the form ot missing words and a missing letter, since I typed it rather quickly. I am trusting you to be able to cope.

          • Redneck Liberal June 1, 2022 at 8:25 pm #

            …and, no, that wasn’t offensive (but I’m also sure you’re not that sorry anyway). I get much worse from many of the truly deluded denizens of CFN.

            As to your friends being deaf to your imprecations…you need to understand that you’re coming across like a ‘nutter’ to them now, regardless of how sincere you are in your beliefs.

            Your friends have two real concerns – one, that you’re NOT okay and two, that listening to you could drag them down the rabbit hole too.

            They’ve watched what I’ve also watched – a significant change to your whole perspective, and now you’re likely at the point where you dwell on little else.

            Whether it’s all true or not is not as big a point as the fact that you cannot do anything about it and have sacrificed your real-life relationships on the Altar of The Narc Troll. It’s been expensive for you.

            How is your husband doing anyway? Has he been convinced by your arguments?

          • GreenAlba June 1, 2022 at 8:47 pm #

            “As to your friends being deaf to your imprecations…you need to understand that you’re coming across like a ‘nutter’ to them now, regardless of how sincere you are in your beliefs.

            Your friends have two real concerns – one, that you’re NOT okay and two, that listening to you could drag them down the rabbit hole too.”

            Why did you come out with that load of drivel, rather than answer two simple questions? The two people in question were merely told, in a WhatsApp message, (a) what happened to my husband, and (b) that our former employer was being sued and why.

            At the time, I hadn’t seen these two people for almost a year (one was pathologically terrified of going indoors anywhere because of covid) and still haven’t seen them, now for 2 years. In what way would telling the ungarished truth about two events (a) consitute ‘imprecations’? I merely told them what happened.

            You really are a thoroughly dishonest person.

          • Redneck Liberal June 1, 2022 at 8:52 pm #

            “I’ve lost a friend of 30 years, and I think another couple of less close friends from work may be ignoring me because I told them what happened to my husband after his booster…”

            That was what I was referring to, rather than the couple of people you Whatsapp’d.

          • Redneck Liberal June 1, 2022 at 8:54 pm #

            That’s interesting. You used to call Janos & Narc Troll “thoroughly dishonest”, or don’t you recall now?

          • GreenAlba June 1, 2022 at 9:10 pm #

            You still haven’t answered the questions.

            The two friends ARE the two people referred to regarding the WhatsApp message. Why do you invent things?

            The friend of 30 years (whom I saw about once every 3 months) is, I find, rather shallower than I thought, although I had my suspicions. She’s into sticking her fingers in her ears and singing la la la, rather than contemplating reality. A bit like yourself, possibly.

            I am somewhat of an introvert and go for quality rather than quantity when it comes to friends. I also have longstanding friends in faraway places who wouldn’t make it to my funeral anyway.

            And my closest friend here didn’t only accept what I told her was going on, but said she wasn’t even surprised, given her views of governments generally, and her awareness of likely dystopian futures. She also happens to have a first class honours degree in biological science, so she’s a bit brighter than most in some relevant areas.

          • hmuller June 1, 2022 at 9:19 pm #

            You see the problem here, GA? Redneck can not deal with facts, but only ridicule and mock those who stray beyond the accepted parameters of group think. It’s a method of social control.
            People like Redneck not only persecuted Galileo but even refused to look through his telescope. Thus proving that searching for truth is irrelevant to them. Running with the herd is what matters. If you don’t, you are a deluded nutter.
            Very sad.

          • GreenAlba June 1, 2022 at 9:30 pm #

            Indeed, hm. Redneck is a sad, inadequate soul that one should pity from a distance rather than engage with. Engaging with him only makes him worse. I realised that even while I was doing it. It’s like knitting fog.

        Not as long as NYC exists. The sheer insanity of that burg grossly distorts everything else in the state, and has given rise to such pleasant “leaders” as Mayor Doomberg, Mayor Putz (Warren Wilhelm Jr, aka Bill diBlasio), the Cuomos, AOC, Jerry “I shit myself” Nadless, Mayor “you don’t need no guns” Adams, and Sen
        Schmendrick himself, Upchuck Schumer. And that’s just off the top of my head! Throw in Buffalo, Rochester, Albany, and the People’s Republic of Ithaca, and it’s an almost impossible lift to restore sanity here.

          So why does any person of normal, Republican sensibilities remain in New York State? It’s a serious question. I even wonder why our esteemed host has not decamped from his semi-rural, upstate Eden to escape the hellish government of the Empire State?

          Hell, I’m so damned conservative that Houston, Texas no longer met my standards for good government, so I moved to a small town in Alabama that’s so ruby red that even our Confederate statue was able to weather the storm of the idiotic eruption over St. George Floyd in 2020 and it still remains standing proudly at our courthouse.

          I mean, hell…..there are still many sane places left to live in this country, despite the general insanity of the government in D.C. and some blue states. Why put up with that shit?

            Jennifer. I truly get that. As a 7th generation Texan with ancestry all the way back to the 1820’s there it was not fun or easy or a happy exercise to leave the state of my birth…..but I did…..because the quality of my day to day life and the preservation of my liberties is my highest value. I just do not understand why that is not everyone’s highest value? Perhaps this explains why our quality of life and are liberties are inexorably draining away. Food for thought.

        Penelope, I saw that video Mr. Kunstler refers to before they took it down, and Montagnier seemed quite confident in his analysis. I don’t have the background to judge its correctness, but certainly he believed something awful was approaching and warned the rest of us to gird our loin. He believed there were going to be billions of bodies that will need to be burned. He seemed concerned that the dead would need to be handled with great care as he feared corpses would be spewing contangion. I think, in the aftermath of a significant die off, the surviviors will be far too busy to afford the luxury of politics as we know it. Those still alive will be consumed with questions of survival–things like: Where is our next meal coming from? How will we keep warm? Who’s going to raise all those orphans?

        WAR is always the Answer.

        People like to pretend that the Pandemic of Fear that gripped the entire world has passed on like a spring rainstorm and all we have to do to make its passing permanent is engage our well honed powers of cognitive dissonance. It may be that firing up the machinery for manufacturing digital votes out of thin air will suffice to get us past the upcoming mid-term “election” games, but engaging in a WAR that at least one side takes seriously is a little different from brainwashing the herd with reports of glorious progress on the path to Victory.

        When Azlov Battalion soldiers crawled out of their underground burrows after months of living on boiled potatoes, no amount of posturing by their dancing gender-challenged Leader and no amount of fraudulent “reporting” by the Free Press can hide the reality of defeat. As the Russian army grinds forward in the process of de-Nazification of their historical lands, the reality on the ground stands in stark contrast to the reports of specialists ensconced in the multitude of “think tanks” oozing out from Washington DC.

        Those who think that the battle against the Virus has been a success are sadly mistaken. Of course the Pfizer Clot Shot doesn’t prevent those “vaccinated” from passing the disease on to others, nor does it prevent the “vaccinated” from becoming ill and dying from it. While it may temporarily mask the symptoms, it performs none of the functions of a traditional vaccines. What it does is flood the body with toxic spike proteins, cross the blood-brain barrier in a manner that few molecules can, increase miscarriages and sterility, and suppress and destroy the natural immune system.

        But even more threatening, the global propaganda mobilization necessary to make millions of people react with fear and act contrary to their reasoned interests primes the people for WAR.
        A recent poll assessed the correspondence between belief and acceptance of gene altering therapy and support for nuclear war.
        Among the population who resisted inoculation, only 13% supported an American no-fly zone over Ukraine which could only lead to a direct shooting war with Russia which inevitably will involve nuclear weapons. Among those who had received two shots and thus were judged to be fully vaccinated over 50% favored escalation toward nuclear war. And of those who had followed Government advice and taken additional booster shots, 86% couldn’t move toward the Final Solution quick enough.

        It’s as if the COVID propaganda onslaught had surgically removed their ability to think like fully human beings.

        • justanotherguy May 30, 2022 at 8:39 pm #

          If they bought the Covid propaganda, they’re too dense to see the parallels between the Cuban missile crisis and Putin’s discomfort with all the new NATO countries hanging near his borders. Also, they can’t imagine someone being angry or crazy enough to actually drop the Big One. Truman is so remote as to be mythological at this point.

      • Hereward the Woke May 30, 2022 at 3:58 pm #

        If the jab was a depop weapon, then the globalists screwed up badly. As you say, the very people they want dead will be the only survivors. And very angry, vengeful survivors too.

        • Fireside Chats May 31, 2022 at 6:01 pm #

          From what I glean, it’s not entirely a depop agenda. They need a group of slaves to control, experiment on, and make money from (see the researcher Alison McDowell’s work) — but they don’t need 8 billion of them.

          • Jennifer May 31, 2022 at 8:30 pm #

            I agree.

            My tin foil hat theory:

            They use the shot to wipe out the stupid “useless” people (and a few others by default) as that demon Harari said.

            They get the population to the “manageable” 500,000,000 they so desolately desire.

            It seems counterintuitive that they would be, in theory, allowing the smarter people to survive, but some low IQ person cannot be trained to run and maintain all the complex tech the “elites” need to live their luxurious lives.

            What they believe is that they can manage and control a smaller population of Smarts to run their paradise.

            Schwab et al. truly believe they will be uploading their brains into computers to live forever. They need us Smarts to maintain those servers.

            Jennifer

            At least in my range of experience I’ve not observed that the very rich are smarter than the average street dealer. When I met Charlie Munger (with no idea who he was) I wrote him off as a little man in an ill-fitting suit, so ill informed that he had little credibility. And the two brothers who ending up being the majority owners of A T & T seemed clueless the moment they stepped away from the financial deal-making table. And then there is our President and his son, “the smartest person I’ve ever known.”

            Dunce caps are perhaps more useful than tinfoil hats—.

    • Beryl of Oyl May 30, 2022 at 10:40 am #

      Remember when some of us covid-denying conspiracy theorists thought some of these ‘elites’ were paying off somebody in order not to get the real shots?

      “Jose Maria Fernandez Sousa-Faro, president of European pharmaceuticals giant PharmaMar, has been charged by police with being falsely vaccinated against Covid-19. Dr. Sousa-Faro has been caught up in a scandal in Europe involving people being added to the National Immunization Registry in exchange for large sums of money, with many of them familiar faces and household names.”

          He did not have a vax reaction. Watch the videos of him during the recall. He was on uppers. Totally whacked out.

          My theory is that he was detoxed and rehabbed of whatever he was on during the recall. By a Getty family private physician at home, most likely. People like that have access to that kind of thing.

          Newsom has not had his children vaxxed. Everyone knows it. I don’t for one second believe he has taken it himself.

      • Pollyella May 30, 2022 at 1:32 pm #

        I was sure all along that all the “Pig-Wigs” FAKED their Shots (they’re not “vaccines”!).

        Then Joe-the-Bribe-ed-Biden proved it by staging his “Booster” without the protocol.

        The mumbling Cadaver’s “Vax” was as FALSE as his “election.”

    • AreC May 30, 2022 at 10:47 am #

      Montagnier probably meant that those who got the full dose will die quickly and indeed may have. The question is what percentage of the shots were full strength? I suspect that many were not and the result of that will be a huge drag on the medical industrial complex. Ultimately worse than death in terms of necessary medical care and its attendant costs. Then there is the fact that China manufactures most of our drugs and we’re kicking sand in their face. What’s to stop them from sanctioning the export of the pills so many people need? My mother’s oldest sister died of a mild case of pneumonia in 1945 b/c of penicillin shortages caused by the war. That’s what we could be looking at.

      • DrTomSchmidt May 30, 2022 at 12:50 pm #

        Yes, the medical system will not survive the numbers of people with crippling illnesses.

        • Not_GeorgeT May 30, 2022 at 1:32 pm #

          The ‘medical system’ is well into self destruct mode by firing tens of thousands of experienced healthcare providers who refused the jab simply because they exercised their right to refuse.

          Lot’s of second-stringers doing fill-in work.

          With poor healthcare (like physician error) already being a hushed-up major cause of death, it’s not looking good.

          A decent percentage of the tens of thousands, generally being motivated people, have already found other work. Not being layabouts, they won’t be back.

          Nor should it. It needs to be totally taken down. Especially after denying people life saving treatments like Ivermectin all.the while giving them remdesiver, which was essentially a poison, just because the government paid them a bonus to domso.

      Yes indeed, 100 percent mortality seems unreal. Yet there is that Deagle report of the USA population down to 120 million by 2025. I expect many (maybe not most) innoculees will suffer a variety of lifelong side effects, chiefly to their immune systems. Big buck for Big Pharma treating that.

      Of course she is in her 70s.

      • malthuss May 30, 2022 at 1:01 pm #

        Yes, a gal told me ‘my friend had a stroke’…we needed to know when did she get the jab?

          A lot of people like the one you describe only watch the MSM. They would never dream of looking at what the tin foil hat crowd is saying. The results follow.
          On a similar note, those who follow conventional, financial advisors who have no clue the game is ending – they and their portfolios will soon face the unimaginable.

        • Anthea May 31, 2022 at 7:59 am #

          I’m surprised that such people haven’t read one single opposing viewpoint, because I’ve posted links to them on Facebook many times. It’s pure lack of interest.

          Another old friend–who has gotten every jab available–once told me that he had decided in favor of getting the jabs because he had “researhed it.” Apparently his research did not include viewing any of the links or videos I posted.

          I have thought the medical establishment was a bunch of ghouls for at least 40 years, and have avoided them as much as possible. Why have other people not come to this same conclusion? My kids were not vaccinated when they were growing up. Three of my kids were born at home. I know other women who’ve done the same; I don’t understand why everyone isn’t doing this.

    • DrTomSchmidt May 30, 2022 at 12:45 pm #

      He’s wrong. My guess is that a lot of the doses were handled incorrectly and so their mRNA payloads were deactivated.

      A shockingly high percentage of people who did take the shots will die, however.

      Death, of course, isn’t the worst outcome. If you’re trying to cripple an army, seriously wounding without killing will do it, as much effort goes into saving the injured that cannot be put to offense. Every injured man removes one or two more from active duty. So if 25% of the jabbed get serious repercussions, then we have a huge problem.

      • malthuss May 30, 2022 at 1:04 pm #

        Correct, Tom. We forget that the original meaning of the word “decimated” wasn’t a complete wipe out, but just one in ten. That’s enough to bring down an army. Or a society. If it weren’t so tragic and sad, it would be funny hearing normies explain away all the “died suddenlies”.

          “god does not give a rats ass about sin”

          If there was a God, which I think there is, or even if there is a Pentagon of Gods, like there is in Rome, I think he/they
          would definitely care about sin.

          Because if you think about it, “sin” is pretty much those kinds of activities which tend to work against civilization. Like murder, adultery, lying, eating food like shellfish, which in the days before refrigeration, could spoil pretty quickly and kill you or make you very sick, homosexuality which could introduce all kinds of diseases into a restricted population, and which the old rabbis probably noticed happening.

          Even those chimps had to make a moral code such as Ape Shall Never Kill Ape (which I think was mistranslated and should read, Ape Shall Never Murder Ape.)

          Civilization is but a very thin veneer, and there is cheap particle board beneath it!

          • Anthea May 30, 2022 at 4:55 pm #

            Very true. You can’t have a functioning society–let alone a prosperous one–without a moral code that proscribes lying, cheating, stealing, and killing. You can’t have even the least material subsistence, let alone prosperity, if anything you produce is sure to be stolen. (No one will produce anything. Duh.) You can’t have trade without a willingnesss to adhere to contract law (keeping your word) and business ethics, even with foreigners. You can’t have families and communities unless they are loyal to each other.

            Without a moral code, no human community can survive–which means that there is no hope at all that it will thrive, since everyone will be dead

    • Anthea May 30, 2022 at 4:41 pm #

      People like Klaus Schwab and the rest of the Davos crowd have been around and running assorted “civilizations” for several thousand years. As individuals, they do die, but the machinery whereby they rule remains, and someone(s) similar continues to function in their places.

      The usual course of events is ever-increasing human degradation, ever more general corruption and moral decay, economic destruction at all levels, and depopulation–which may be due to the effects of economic destruction (famine and plague), or may be due to internal wars or outside invasion invited by weakness. Every once in awhile, this process is marked by one or more natural disasters, so sometimes it looks like it might be Divine vengeance. There also seems to be a pretty close correlation between such collapses and long-term climate fluxtuations, like warm periods and mini-ice ages.

      End Times come and go. Maybe we are now in THE End Times–where things will finally be set to rights. (Or maybe not.) Maybe someone should write a book on “How to Recognize the End Times when You Are in Them.” But I guess we already know that, don’t we? That’s what we’re all on here bitching about.

      As to whether these are THE End Times, we have been told that, as to that time, “No one knoweth but the Father.” So I don’t think I would necessarily count on Divine intervention to set things to rights. We might just have to muddle through as humanity always has during all the other hundreds or thousands of previous End Times.

    You go for it Jim, call upon the God of Abraham for only He knows te day and the hour that He will make right what has been made wrong! Although the day and the hour certainly seems a lot closer today than it was when Dwight D. Eisenhower was warning us all that the Vendors of Death would one day be a problem. The sacrifice of JFK, MLK< and RFK while tragic was, at least to me, a flashlight shining on the cockroaches who have managed to remain in control some 70 years after their dirty deeds.

        I participated in a Memorial Day ceremony this morning in the village I grew up in, actually squeezed into my old uniform and got to be in the color guard. For me it’s Old Home Week, a chance to see relatives and people from my past; it’s a ritual that’s been carried on every year on the Town Square since 1867. It was subdued, quite unlike anything I’ve seen in the past. The invocation was given by the UCC minister, he spoke of dark times ahead, and getting right with God (much like Jim’s blog last week)

        • megabeth May 30, 2022 at 1:17 pm #

          What a fine ritual! Are you by chance down by or below the Mason/Dixon line? Up north, we have a parade, a cemetery ceremony, and some WWII- and Vietnam-era flying salutes. This year, I’ll also be driving north to the vets’ cemetery to see my dad’s new marble marker and leave some flowers from his garden.

          When we buried him last fall, as we were walking away, a lone lawn sprinkler started up and hit his sister in the butt. He’s dead, but still retains his sense of humor, I think.

As they passed in back of me, the woman said, “Oh well, I guess we can take the stairs.” They magically reappeared at the breakfast bar, impatiently waiting for us madkless proles to PLEASE get out of their way so they didn’t contract scabies and Ebola from everyone else. I desperately wanted to ream them out using the language my Marine vet Daddy taught me, but figured that would just delay my feeding, so I left them alone. Breakfast > assholes.

            @ stelmosfire:

            What normally happens when the rabbit population explodes is the foxes move in and clean them out. That will happen even in suburbia.

            Many years ago when I lived in a snooty suburb, there was a summer when the rabbits were so thick that I was running over rabbit nests mowing the lawn, and they ate my garden down to the ground. The next year, almost every time I drove the kids to school in the morning, I saw a fox in someone’s front yard, breakfasting on a rabbit.

        • Hereward the Woke May 30, 2022 at 4:09 pm #

          Stelmos: we have Swallow’s nests under our eaves. Last week, some of our transhuman, walking zombie neighbours complained to the housing association about them. We battered them to pieces with the law and got them a visit from the bird protection folks. The Swallows are here to stay. I felt it was all a nice little analogy for what is happening at the global level. I just don’t understand how anyone can want to destroy these amazing creatures who come back here every year with incredible accuracy from Africa. People are scum!

        • Wizard of the Saddle June 1, 2022 at 1:11 am #

          We also have a mating pair of wrens who have come every year for the past 3 years to build a nest inside our garage. The first year it was atop some soft luggage sitting atop our filing cabinets. This year and last it has been inside of a fabric shopping bag that we leave hanging from a wall peg near my workbench. There are 4 small hatchlings in there right now. Great fun for us peeking in at them periodically, but momma wren gets rather annoyed at times and flies off until the curious apes are through gawking at her hungry charges.

          Then, end of February, only two of five remained. I figure it’s mama and papa bluebird, after kicking the kids out of the territory. Papa started attacking his reflection in the glass door. Does it every single day now, at least a dozen times each day.

    • Not_GeorgeT May 30, 2022 at 3:51 pm #

      Nature has much to teach if we pause and use our senses to absorb the lessons.

      Those four hungry mouth are getting tossed out of the nest in the not-to-distant future. We have a feathered family which returns each year to nest under an overhang. Lasts maybe a couple of months. New nest built every year as the old one is removed from its location in late Spring after they leave.

      They don’t have any choice but to be out in the world.

      Some will survive better than others.

        If God could make a mistake he wouldn’t be God. The idea that everything would be fine if people were automatons devoid of freedom has been the dream of people like Vladimir Putin; Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, etc, (and according to James, the dream of the conspirators of Davos).. It’s not the fault of God that Adam and Eve made the wrong choice.bringing sin and death into the world. All is not lost, however. 2000 years ago he sent his son (the second Adam) who defeated both and restoring to each of us the freedom that he gave mankind so long ago.

        It wasn’t a mistake. It was a necessity. How so you know your created beings actually live you if they don’t have free moral agency?

          This reminds me of the cartoon of the old guy asitting by the duck pond who is saddened to realize that “the ducks only like him because he feeds them.”

          Real love requires active doing to benefit another. A man who doesn’t provide is like a woman who won’t take care of her child. And, after all, one does these things for the joy of doing them anyway.

          Or, as scripture has it, if you encounter someone in need, “and one of you say unto them, ‘Depart in peace; be ye warmed and filled,’ without giving them those things which are needful to the body, what doth it profit?”

        “…the human condition does not seem to change…”

        This comment brings to mind the enlightened terror of growing up in an age of MAD. Father an officer in SAC, brother a USAF tanker pilot as well (his observation, after the Cuban missile crisis: “The only danger to us would have been from our bombers running into each other on the way to Russia”).

        I was 99% convinced in the early 1960s that they would go for it. Cigar-chewing Curtis LeMay urged JFK to pull the trigger when Cuba came up. It was that close. Kennedy, musing “Can I afford to lose twenty million voters?”

        From the 1950s that specter lingers. Be born after 1970 and it’s presumably a dead issue. “Oh, nuclear war? No way. Never happen.” Never say never.

          Is our “leadership” really so certain it would be 20 million voters whose lives would be lost, rather than thousands of politicians and their toadies? Do they suppose that the Russians would refrain from bombing DC out of professional courtesy?

    Way back in the 70’s, congress released a study on the limits to growth. Kissinger and Cheney hired the Stanford Research Institute to do their own study and conclusions. I read the original paper about 20 yrs ago when I was researching a book I was writing on global warming. Haven’t found it since, and I quit writing the book when all my research led to what is going on today. Quite obvious, really. Right after that study, AIDS, then everything else. Basically, what the paper said was if we did not reduce the population of earth 80% by the year 2025, we would be extinct by 2050. Next thing you know, Aids, swine flu, bird flu, weaponized Ebola, war on terror, war on drugs, war, and more war, now famine coming to a neighborhood near you. War, Famine and Pestilence. I really thought AIDs was gonna do us in, hell, right after the summer of love, everybody was getting some, right. So, why are we still here? Jim hit the nail right on the head this time.

          Skyler Buckner is the arrested resident of Tuft who has been linked to the brutal Oklahoma Festival Shooting incident. Skyler surrendered to the Muskogee County Sheriff’s Office and The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation on Sunday, May 29, 2022. He has since been arrested

          • Blackbird May 30, 2022 at 11:27 am #

            Skyler? A black guy with a white girl’s name. A post-woke “Boy named Sue”.

            “Brutal” shooting? When I read that, I knew the shooter had to be white. Black shootings are so “joyful” and “celebratory”.

            And he surrendered? I thought only white people did that. Seems there’s a lot to a name after all.

          • malthuss May 30, 2022 at 1:08 pm #

            skyler is a male name. I know a guy maybe 40 years old with that name.

      Hiya Dis!

      How about the gift the Feds gave you there in New Mexico.

      The Las Vegas fire was started by a Federal controlled burn.

      Will the idiots in DC ever be able to do anything right. I remember you talking about the lateral winds at the time. Controlled burn? Idiots!!

      • Disaffected May 30, 2022 at 10:56 am #

        LOL! Hadn’t heard that. Not the first time. The 2011 Las Conchas fire was a “controlled burn” as well. Whoopsie!

        • malthuss May 30, 2022 at 10:59 am #

          I’m wondering, do they figure the best time to do a controlled burn any differently than in the past?

          As in, have they started depending on computer models to estimate when the wind will be just right for a burn?

          • Disaffected May 30, 2022 at 3:14 pm #

            I think they use the computer models. Trouble is, NM is “enchanted” and the winds don’t play by their rules. Generally speaking, there’s pretty much no good time to conduct a “controlled burn” here. The term is an oxymoron.

        Never forget about the givvies either. They gave their lives in America’s wars – all to serve the Bankers and nascent New World Order.

        The givvies are willing to give it all. But they are unwilling to think about whether it is worth it. And if you ask them to, they will hate you. Thus they don’t value themselves or you either.

        It’s not just good and bad, developed and undeveloped, high and low. There’s an intermediate stage. That’s where the givvies are. They do good when those directing them are good. If not, then not.

    Evil bitch from hell Jacinda Arden was giving a commie victory speech at Harvard, and the audience was too stupid to know enough not to allow themselves to be lectured on democracy by a totalitarian globalist puppet.

    I wonder if any New Zealanders still think all this is about a virus.

    BTW, California’s dictator is said to have the covid again. He’s refusing to answer any questions about when he’s going to lift his totalitarian phony state of emergency, because his intent is never to do so.

    It isn’t such an emergency that he can’t travel out of state to meet with Ardern.

    The disinformation machine is working overtime, because we still don’t know exactly what happened at that school in Uvalde, and it was suspiciously timely as Ardern came to lecture us on giving up our only means of self-defense, since we all just saw that police will not defend you.

        I ususally avoid this stuff, but Ardern is a transvestite, IMO.

        It also fits perfectly with the YGL/inclusivity messaging Davos uses to push the Great Reset. She’s also the one that made that public announcement about orgies being possible for the vaccinated. No well-adjusted member of society would do anything remotely like that. But a sex freak with unusual proclivities would, and it is astounding how much sex occupies the mind of the LGBT community.

        Also, there is another video that was making the rounds this week in which she is seen in a darker dress, with an absolutely unmistakable lump that sways to and fro.

        • Redneck Liberal June 2, 2022 at 9:22 pm #

          This is probably the most egregious example of how you manufacture bullshit and spray it like a diary farmer recycling his manure.

          “Ardern is a transvestite”.

          Easy to say, and the video you link to shows just what a low level of ‘proof’ you need to support your nutjob theories. And then you claim to have seen the inconvertible proof in another video, but cannot show it?

          More manufactured “factoids” – Ardern did not make a public announcement about orgies, you very dim bulb. That remark was made by Colbert – you know, a joke…a comic take on the fact that the COVID restrictions in NZ had been eased and Tinder was back on. FFS.

          • Night Owl June 3, 2022 at 4:39 am #

            “Tinder was back on”

            What an interesting take on it. Or is 25 people engaged in mass revelry too few for an orgy?

            https://www.pedestrian.tv/news/jacinda-ardern-orgies-nz/

            The funniest part of all of this is that you completely avoided her telling us not to “look at the sun.”

            Play the game. Get knocked out. Again and again.

    • Night Owl May 30, 2022 at 4:28 pm #

      Her best line was “Do not look at the sun.”

      Although the one about orgies was good, too.

      I am not sure we will ever see a more laughable head of state than any of the Young Global Leaders.

      JZ, a couple weeks ago I had a cold for maybe two days. Sniffles and a cough. Really only 2 days. I never get sick. I have not had a cold in maybe 15-20 years. My wife caught it and it got into her lungs. Heavy cough, phlegm, stuffed head , the works. She was down for a week. I have some of Potatohead’s free covid test kits. Tested her twice. Negative. She’s better now after about ten days. Lungs cleared up. I thought for sure she would test positive. O2 level never below 94%. Surprise, surprise the common cold (corona virus) is still around.

    • Cyn56 May 30, 2022 at 11:44 am #

      AGREE Yes!…JHK outdoes himself time and time again!

      However, I don’t think we are on the same board. Catherine Austin Fitts speaks about the missing trillions and in my view it financed the DUMBs…these are now luxury digs with technology that far surpasses what us ‘useless eaters’ are allowed to have. I’m guessing globalists/deep state will do an EMP false flag so they have time to get in position and be ready to stay underground or on islands for a year. Nuke not likely as that forces them underground for too long. EMP predictions is 90% gone in 3 months…no power shuts down the entire system and HELL ON EARTH.

      • stelmosfire May 30, 2022 at 12:30 pm #

        EMP dangers are oversold. Tests show that most short wired circuits,( cars, smaller electronics,printed circuits, chips, etc.) are not so vulnerable. Powerlines and the huge transformers that are connected to them are a different story. Grid could definitely go down. Your car, generator, home appliances, not so much. Get some solar panels and put them in storage instead of other discretionary spending. A CME which is more likely would give us time to take everything offline before it hit.

        • Cyn56 May 30, 2022 at 1:56 pm #

          Yes…I did see something claiming that EMP dangers ‘oversold’ until I saw yet another and compelling video stating ‘nope…it will SUCK…and here’s why’. (Wish I could find it but my filing system is a mess.) Even IF smaller electronics are safe, and cars work…gas stations and delivery of food, gas …will not be working …a cascading chain of ALL that runs on power and the internet down. Most solar is feeding back into the electrical grid so I fully expect that would go down also. We can’t have ONE part of the system shut down for a month…never mind EVERY part down or hobbling along. The nightmare throughout history is the never ending ‘conquer, rape & pillage’ to grab resources…in good times and ESPECIALLY in bad times. We’d be idiots not to expect that they fully intend to have us killing each other rather than imagining they have the army needed to take over the world.

        I was thinking the same. It’s pretty great. There has been a big shift these past few weeks around the world.

        More people who were on the fence seem to be getting it. There was a decent indie media presence at the Davos freak show this time, and I think a much broader audience is beginning to see what is going on.

    Thanks JHK! Reading this was like a breath of fresh air, after taking in all those negative “doom and gloom” prognostications as of late! While the transference to a simpler, more agrarian way of life will have its challenges, it’s a heck of a lot more positive than the totalitarianism and slavery espoused by many as the result.

    It’s somewhat uncharacteristic but certainly heart-warming to see Mr Kunstler suddenly talking about things spiritual.

    On my part, I’m kinda partial to the Hindu idea that we’re living through a period of extreme darkness termed the Kali Yuga, the end of a cycle, after which shall come a new dawn, the beginning of a new cycle.

    QUOTE: ***They screwed-the-pooch on the Covid-19 caper and now the data is biting Klaus and Company on the ass.***

    It ought to be such a pleasure to see a fat chunk being ripped off the posteriors of Klaus and Co. Use the meat to make some hamburger patties.

    Do any of you Clusterfkkrs find it odd that the news out of Ukraine since Feb. 24 was that Russia was getting its ass kicked, Russian Army was collapsing, Russian soldiers were in a state of mutiny, Ukraine was winning on all fronts, Russia is a paper tiger and all the brave Ukrainian fighters needed for total victory is more $$$ from the US & Western Europe? Then, suddenly, not a day after Congress votes $40 billion in aid for Ukraine, Wapo and the NYT run articles admitting that Ukrainian armed forces were being systematically liquidated in the east, and units that will not surrender are being wiped out. Also it turns out Ukrainian army units are short weapons, ammo and rations. How could that be with billions of largesse pouring into the country from the West? Somebody is getting their filthy mitts and that schwag from the US Treasurey, but who?

    I always read statement which I ran across by Luc Montagnier, but I don’t recall such a stark statement predicting that all Covid vaxxed would be dead within 2 years. Could you supply a footnote as to where he made that statement? I am very surprised that previous commenters have not asked the same question.

    • MaryQueen May 30, 2022 at 2:01 pm #

      Probably because a lot of us actually posted the video months ago of Montagnier saying it, so we already know and it’s not news to us.

    • Uncle Abraham May 30, 2022 at 2:45 pm #

      There is no such statement available, Don. What is available is Montagnier saying the vaccination program was an “unacceptable mistake…a scientific error as well as a medical error.” The vaccine, he said, puts pressure on the virus to mutate, creating variants more resistant to vaccination and thereby increasing the death count.

      • MaryQueen May 30, 2022 at 3:35 pm #

        You saw all of his interviews then, got it.

    • anmariwakaranai May 30, 2022 at 3:48 pm #

      Just after he died, as part of the announcement of his death, a video of Luc speaking during an anti vax rally in France I think, where he stated what Jim quotes and it is said to have been his last interview.

    “These are the self-defined leaders of the Great Re-set — Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, and Klaus’s scaly majordomo, Dr. Yuval Noah Harari, the inverse reincarnation of Adolf Eichmann…”

    It seems our World will always be plagued by adolescent bullying rich boys (and girls) who never grew up who want to the The King Of The World.

    This is a result of what happens when those with Narcissistic personality disorder begin to leave their teen years. There are so many years ahead of them… ‘what to do? I know! I’ll be King of the World! Worship me! Worship me!’

    If these misfits weren’t so dangerous one could almost pity them. But they are too dangerous for that. The worst kind of low-grade ‘humans’ with their filthy hands on the highest levels of power and influence upon We the People.

    And couple that with the equally sick delusion that only ‘They’ count and have value and everyone else upon the Earth is a disease that must be removed by Them… and you have a recipe for a disaster of Biblical proportions.

    “The idea, it seems, was to bog down and humiliate the Russians so as to bring on the defenestration of Mr. Putin, who, believe it or not and despite the tsunamis of aspersion loosed on him by WEF-funded propagandists, is strangely and actually a defender of Western Civ.”

    The great seer Edgar Cayce famously once said during one his readings, “Hope will come into the world from Russia. Not from the communists, not from the Bolsheviks, but from liberated Russia!”

    And also, “The mission of the peoples of Slavic Russia is to radically change the essence of human relationships. From the East will come liberation from egoism and gross material passions. Relations between peoples will be restored on a new basis: trust and wisdom.”

    Let’s not get confused. ‘Russia’ is not (just) Putin or his crowd any more than all of America is Resident Joe Biden and his band of miscreants. Russia is a people, many of whom pray for peace and have the desire to just be left alone just like most of America and the World.

    No one with any sense today could say that the ‘hope of the World’ will be coming anywhere West of the Atlantic Ocean. So-called Western democracies are racing each other right now to see who can first install the worst form of Dead Red Communism and its Mark of the Best Social Credit and Monetary Tracking System.

    “Supply chains for everything are breaking, with sneaky ramifications.”

    Real leadership with loyalty to the people They represent would see this as a problem to be fixed. But today’s faux-leaders with loyalties to anything but the people They represent see this colossal breakdown as a great victory for themselves and Their own futures as gods of the Universe. You can’t and won’t fix a problem that you want to happen and in fact you enthusiastically encourage. The more we hurt, the more They win.

    “… Luc Montagnier, discoverer of HIV, the virus behind AIDS, who, just prior to his death predicted that 100-percent of the people injected with mRNA Covid “vaccines” would be dead in two years.”

    If ‘They’ don’t get us with the death stabs… then They have ‘the bomb’ or starvation or social unrest or the next designer disease or something else to get the job done.

    There was a famous Monty Python routine where one fellow says to another, “It took me six hours to bury the cat!” The confused pal says, “SIX HOURS to bury a cat?”. To which the first fellow replied, “YES! THE DARN THING WOULDN’T KEEP STILL!”

    Dark humor that hits the bulls-eye dead-center today. Like the unfortunate feline… We the People are not going away fast enough for Them. So look out for bigger shovels on the way. And lots of dirt on our heads.

    One last thing, this being Memorial Day. We have been conditioned to think that Memorial Day is set aside to honor the Strong Arms of the State. Well, it’s time for another kind of Memorial Day.

    We need to set aside one day a year to memorialize the Time when America was truly the great nation. One that stood for real virtues and had the most respected place on the World scene. When it was a place of unbounded plenty and opportunity. When it was a Shining City on the Hill. At least, it sort of was…

    Yes, we need another kind of Memorial Day. A day set aside to think about what we as a Nation used to be. A miracle of social and political philosophy and a bounty of natural resources that for a brief time shined upon and lit up the whole World with its promise.

    A Day to remember and mourn the loss of what We used to be. And a day to long for and pray that somehow a day like that could return. If not here… somewhere.

    When a miracle is all you’ve got. left.. you pray for a miracle. And then try to make that happen.

    • Disaffected May 30, 2022 at 3:02 pm #

      Yes, or could at least still imagine that was the case with a straight face. The truth is, we were never that nation at all, but at least we could harbor the illusion. Make it a Memorial Day for our lost illusions then, or as the title of Friday’s post went, “Childhood’s End.” Don’t let the exceptional be the enemy of the good.

      I’ve had many incarnations. I’m like Yog Sothoth and Great Old Ones, coterminous with time and space themselves.

      A poem for you: Day of the Lion by Mark Brahmin

      By insisting he accept their lies as real
      By insisting he was never to his people tied
      By dictating exactly what he might feel
      By permitting bawdy joy but never pride
      They believed a lion could be brought to heel
      That a lion could from his courage be pried
      That the lion himself would learn to kneel
      That a lion would not care even if his line died
      That the lion himself would accept such a deal

      In the end it was only to themselves they had lied.

      • Beryl of Oyl May 30, 2022 at 4:31 pm #

        Nice lion poem.

        I like this:

        “Rise like Lions after slumber
        In unvanquishable number-
        Shake your chains to earth like
        dew
        Which in sleep had fallen on you
        Ye are many-they are few.

        That’s not a whole poem, though.

    Perfect. Had me picturing all those clowns fiddling around inside a giant clock. Which truly is their world, their reality.

    But then Biden as “cigar-store-Indian” and with “Singing Censor”.

    Just beautiful.

    Did not know Montagnier made that particular prediction. If correct, we will virtually enjoy the Black Plague all the Karens dream of.

    The lower minions of the cabal have been getting high on their own supply for a while now. They’re fresh out of Hopium as reality grinds their Nazi’s down and Ursula Van der Loon comes up with a shiny new dose of Copium.
    The about turn on the Russian Oil Embargo is predicated on the geo-strategic necessity of preventing Russia selling Europe’s oil to others on the World market and making out like a bandit.

    It is her bounden duty to insulate the tyrant Putin from any Market Risk. Back in my derivatives desk days, we charged for hedges like that.

    The demons of Davos may, of course be proved correct. If they get their European population decimation times nine, the remaining 75 odd million may make it through the winter powered by unicorn farts and Punkah Wallah’s.

    From Davos yesterday

    “9 wealthiest nations pledge electricity production will be fossil fuel free by 2030.”

    The Climate Czar — John Kerry, Captain Planet, is in Davos, representing the United States.

    This means the US has 7.5 years to begin decommissioning legacy power plants and putting up ‘Wind Farms’. Leveling mountaintops, paving over prairie lands and felling forests to make way for 1.5 million windturbines. All I can say you’d better get busy time is running short.

    You know, it always amazes me how so many people who profess to be Christians love to quote the OLD testament, and are so mean spirited and judgmental. Many people who get EBT work full time jobs at places like Walmart, where they get paid wages that can’t support a family. Or they’re disabled. Or old.

    Instead of disparaging the people on EBT, perhaps you could instead look to a government that gives tax breaks to huge corporations, and then allows them to create “jobs” that pay people a minimum wage that in many places hasn’t been raised since 2009.

    A lot of jhks troubles and maybe said grace began with mention of black mischief. Imagine my shock to see a book by that very title written by Evelyn Waugh. Amazing coinkidink…, or not. 😉

    It suprised me no end to see the man embrace the grace of He who IS. I think it is the kali yuga, it is the purification of the world without end, but our memory is short, and so many civilizations have come and gone before us, and got it wrong as well.

    I hear from those who hear first hand from on high that from the ashes of this era there will be survivors, but you must have faith, be prepared, confessed or made good with God spiritually, be prepared physically, by way of food and water, seeds and tools, shoes and clothes, fuel and blankets. Leave the coasts if you can.

    I canned turkey last week. Filled the final jars with leftover spicy fried rice. It’s something. Maybe you’ll grab a jar floating on by, after the deluge. My advice? Say a prayer before you eat.

    “…when the dust settles, their grandiose, totalitarian, and ultimately wicked model of the human project yields to the astounding re-enchantment of a world pregnant with meaning, purpose, and grace. I’m not kidding around. God may be a prankster, as I’ve suggested many times, but he’s also still God, and he doesn’t appreciate wannabe faux-messianic technocrat pricks like Klaus Schwab messing with his glorious creation.”

    I don’t buy that the vaccines are some mass population cull as part of the Great Reset’s master plan. I don’t buy it because it was the GR Vanguard of software companies that led the vaccination charge. I know because I worked in one of the biggest that was once led by the guy who, when asked if there is a lesson in his association with Jeffrey Epstein, said, “Well he’s dead. In general you always have to be careful.” The giant financial institutions mandated vaccines as well. Many of these company’s best and brightest took the vaccine.

    So, to pull off their grand techno utopia where humans are hacked and robots rule, they will need all of these hardware, software and financial engineers to build it. So, why would they kill them all off? They wouldn’t. This project is rife with stupidity and stupid people, but it isn’t that stupid.

    I think the vaccine program was to provide a legal pretext to turning humanity into Bourla’s cattle and as Harari said, to, “get the surveillance under the skin.” He said this directly in talking about the historical significance of Covid. It wasn’t the disease that was significant, it was that the surveillance state would get under your skin – presumably by injection. We have to take them at their word. It was also an amazing financial grift as well as a way to ram socialized health care down the throat of America.

    Of course turning the corporate world into race based hiring institutions, which is what they are doing, to promote DIE is not a recipe for creating a technological utopia either. Their grand plan is marked with problems that include these racist and sexist hiring projects, and the problem with the lack of energy density of the sun, wind and batteries.

    As for Russia and Ukraine, I don’t think that was a part of Davos Man’s master plan. I think it was the first of many Black Swans that flew into the grill of their luxury bus. While they were propping up a comedian as their puppet head of state, they declared war on over half of the American population. They also declared war on the segment of the population who comprise the most lethal elements of our military – white men from the Midwest and the South when they declared war on, “white supremacy”, and stood down the US military. Europe waxed and bow tied their balls and gently lowered them into Russia’s hands by dismantling their reliable energy systems in favor of intermittent and low density sun and wind powered machines – that have to be backed up 24/7 with Russian coal and natural gas. Then there is the choice of Biden to front for the third Obama administration. Is Susan Rice in charge? Could she administer an efficient Bingo night at the Cedar Rapids community center?

    They handed Russia gift after gift after gift. Davos Man was standing down the US military hunting for white supremacists and instituting racial reckoning programs while making Europe wholly reliant on Russia for coal and natural gas to run their society. I think they just royally screwed up, and this is the opening act of many more opera buffas for the regime’s, “weight and shape challenged” sopranos to sing at.

    Now the markets are melting down and the Fed is stuck in a trap of its own making. This is an epic moment. The West’s financial and moral house is falling down, the elite are termites here to help, and the top 10% of the society – the professional class – is clueless as to what is going on to the point that they are unwittingly behind The Davos Man Project. This is a bad bad recipe. Rome had some bad regimes, but I am not aware of any of them that were run and supported by people who openly hated and sought to destroy Rome. Whoah! This is bonkers folks! I think JHK has the right idea of getting and staying out of the blast radius.

      Right, Russia vs. Ukraine is in no way part of the Davos plan.

      Obama and Elizabeth Wathuti and some Davos fiends are directing the action.

      Europe’s biggest problem at one time was the Euro, now it’s Euro-energy.

      The Fed just can’t raise rates high enough to stop this inflation.

    Hi Jim

    Recent beneficiary of your podcasts and long time admirer of your writing, since all the way back in the peak oil days. I wonder what your thoughts are on that topic now. I hope that doesn’t come across as snark, because it isn’t. I just don’t know what your perspective on that topic currently is. Maybe I’ll peruse the sight and see if I can find anything.

    Anyway, the title of this latest piece inspired me to subscribe and comment.

    I’m happy and encouraged to see you publicly acknowledge God. I’m happy to see a lot of thought leaders and intellectuals beginning to acknowledge the spiritual nature of the digital and physical human internment camp that the globe is being turned into.

    One thing I would say however is that you may be overly optimistic in assuming God will soon kick over the tables of the human soul traffickers currently running the planet, unrequested. In other words, a lot of us, say maybe one in ten, are going to have to get on our knees and ask for God to do that first. I don’t think he’ll do it otherwise. He’s known to be fond of his creation and desire the best for it, but then there’s this interesting wrinkle where love seems to lack validity if coerced or otherwise not somehow based on a choice, a decision, an act of will. It’s complicated and I don’t pretend to understand it all, but I guess what I’m saying is, if God created us for relationship with him and we all despise him, is it reasonable to expect him to undo the hell we create for ourselves? For how long? How many times?

    God will have his day, I’m sure of that. In the meantime I hope enough of us have the sense to avail ourselves of the grace offered. Otherwise, the Davos demoniacs may continue to increase their reign. For a time.

      ‘God’ just seems to me like people’s anthropomorphization of the cosmos.

      Guy: ‘Hey, God, how’re you doing today? Wanna join me for an aimless walk around the neighborhood?’

      God: ‘Which one?’

      Guy: ‘Well, mine of course… unless you can beam us to anyone you want. Then I say, take your pick!’

      God: ‘Ok, sounds good… Are ya ready?’

      Guy: ‘Yep.’

      God: ‘It is done!’

      Guy: ‘Oh wow! This is crazy!’

        Shoplet, I understand your perspective. If you’ve been indoctrinated from childhood to accept as dogma a magical story that says the mindless, purposeless, cosmos created intelligence and purpose by accident because it had a lot of time, while at the same time being programmed and conditioned to have an allergy to any beginnings of contemplation of the supernatural, then the above breakdown is likely to be the extent of your perspective.

        I’m not ridiculing you. I have genuine empathy for you. We are all products of our environment, to some extent. I don’t consider myself better than you. Just more fortunate. I don’t understand why some people are allowed insight and others not. That is another mystery of the cosmos.

        I can only encourage you to try to open your mind and seek truth. You may find it very rewarding.

        • Shoplet™ June 1, 2022 at 5:05 am #

          The cosmos is ‘alive’, Jody, what with its forces/laws, and us.

          Certainly some of us are mindful and purposeful, yes?

          Therefore, so is the universe.

          It peers at itself through us.

          So I feel no need to anthropomorphize it.

          What’s the point?

          Because then, what created God?

          I am comfortable with the idea that the universe is infinite, that it always was and always will be, or at least that the continuum of universes that ultimately gave birth to ours is.

          In some sense, we echo the universe’s apparent infinity from our parents and through our children.

          So we die and yet we don’t.

    • tucsonspur May 31, 2022 at 4:04 am #

      God no, spirituality yes. Where in the Universe does God dwell? Everywhere, right? Maybe ‘God’ is dark matter or dark energy. I think I just spotted him, reconstituting, beyond the Whirlpool galaxy.

      I know, it’s all part of his plan, like all wars, all hate, all suffering–like Uvalde. Yes, the children are all angels in heaven now, aren’t they?

      You need a God, fine, but you just may need spirituality more.

      • JohnAZ May 31, 2022 at 10:36 am #

        God is everywhere and is everything. Look up on a clear night and contemplate the cosmos, the presence of God. Think about a new born, the power of God’s intelligence, DNA, the master programmer. Every cell of a human being, all three trillion of them, master planned for function and location.

        Every human needs to realize that the presence of the creator is so much bigger than they are, whatever his “form” may be. He is not dark matter, dark energy, light, human, granite, gaseous giants, solar plasma,

        He is all the above. He is God.

        • tucsonspur May 31, 2022 at 4:44 pm #

          • Shoplet™ June 1, 2022 at 5:26 am #

            Jody, your apparent notion of God is that He/She/It came from nothing, yes?

            If so, and as I’ve written elsewhere, that is a kind of ‘dead/lifeless’ beginning.

            The beauty of an infinite universe that came from another parent universe and so on is that it echoes our own lives.

            Its start is a living start.

          • Jarek June 1, 2022 at 12:46 pm #

            No Tusc. As Santayana said, the universe gains nothing by calling it God.

            And God is diminished to mere matter.

    I’m somewhat surprised by the sudden and accelerating retreat in Ukraine. I’ve even seen some speculation that the current regime there won’t make it through the summer intact. Delaying negotiations now simply means that more infrastructure is leveled guaranteeing the destruction of Ukraine. That may not be an issue for a regime that seems ambivalent at best about the grinding down of its own people and armed forces. But it is probably no small thing at all to the people. Thus the growing disunity within the EU and NATO comes as no surprise given the odds now. What will they make of the apparent collapse of their blue and gold narrative? Yet another bold and very public attempt to seize power in the current thing? One must be as wise as a serpent to trace their steps.

            If your plan is to crash the whole works anyway, letting China and India burn through the lifeblood of our economy many times faster than we could is a smart move. Russia only has so much of the stuff too, so the faster they go through it, the faster they revert to the norm and crash along with us. If everyone in China and India were to start driving and enjoying even a semblance of our lifestyle, how long could that possibly last? 25 years maybe? Not long, for sure.

    One surprising development is that black shooting victims have slipped to 79% of total casualties, with Hispanics gaining ground, up to 16%, which may reflect the 250,000 illegals arriving at the southern border each month.

      250,000 illegals arriving at the southern border each month”

      Where do you get your numbers from, BRH? Out of your ass?

      From CBP website, “unique encounters” (which includes legal immigrants as well) was less than 158,000 in April 2022. Perhaps you have more up-to-date numbers to share?

      CBP Southwest Border Enforcement Numbers for April 2022

      Since many people expelled into Mexico under Title 42 try to reenter the U.S., Title 42 has contributed to a higher-than-usual number of migrants making multiple border crossing attempts, which means that total encounters somewhat overstate the number of unique individuals arriving at the border.

      The number of unique encounters nationwide in April 2022 was 157,555, a 2% decrease in the number of unique enforcement encounters compared to the prior month.

      There were 201,800 encounters by U.S. Border Patrol agents along the southwest land border in April, a 4 percent decrease compared to March.

      An additional 32,288 encounters occurred by Office of Field Operations officers at a port of entry, an increase of 183 percent compared to March. This is attributed to the high number of Ukrainians processed at southwest border ports of entry. Of the 234,088 total encounters, 28 percent involved individuals who had at least one prior encounter in the previous 12 months, compared to an average one-year re-encounter rate of 15 percent for FY2014-2019.

      71 percent of all southwest land border encounters were single adults, with 166,814 encounters in April, which represents a 2 percent decrease compared to March.

      96,908 encounters (41 percent of total monthly encounters) were processed for expulsion under Title 42. 137,180 encounters were processed under Title 8.

      89,642 encounters involving single adults (54 percent of all single adult encounters) were processed for expulsion under Title 42, with 77,172 processed under Title 8.

      7,058 encounters involving family unit individuals (13 percent of all family unit individuals) were processed for expulsion under Title 42, with 47,715 processed under Title 8.

        We had two try to get around the wall in Imperial beach one drowned and one was rescued and released into the country.

        This is not good for anyone including those seeking ILLEGAL entry into the country.

        Since they installed Joe Biden into the Whitehouse the numbers have gone straight up and the VP has intentionally bungled the mission of securing the borders.

    Jim, welcome to acceptance. You’ve long held all of the pieces, but denial kept you concluding it was just a cluster. That’s what led to a lot of political conjecture and rationalization ie classic negotiation stage.

    The next step for you and commenters is to at least fully appreciate the logical consistency of the WEF programs. You may not like them, but they, like yourself and others, also have a plan.

    Actually, when you were writing about post surplus 15 years ago, while you in effect were coming to similar conclusions, you really only differed in possible solutions. So, same facts, different conclusions.

    If we remove the fantasy of peaceful kumbaya, then we’re left with a top down effort at managing the crash. Why is an organic, self organizing effort objectively superior in favor of uniform corporate directives, especially if it fails to accomplish the end goal?

    Perhaps the final hurdle is to reevaluate whether WEF leadership is really driven by some cartoonish evil hatred for mankind. Maybe, just maybe they’re carrying the burden of Sophie’s choice. Was she evil being forced to choose who would survive?

    Anyway, your writing is now much clearer – you’re addressing the fixed reality of what’s really happening without injecting hopium and other fanciful outcomes to superficial distractions.

    The only variables remaining is whether the post industrial human project successfully powers down in a controlled fashion WEF style, or it goes critical and takes everything with it.

    It would be nice to see an intelligent conversation in that regard. Maybe your forum could lead a rational discussion about counter WEF solutions.

    A tribute to Joan of Arc on her feast day.

    To arrive at a just estimate of a renowned man’s character one must judge it by the standards of his time, not ours. Judged by the standards of one century, the noblest characters of an earlier one lose much of their lustre; judged by the standards of today, there is probably no illustrious man of four or five centuries ago whose character could meet the test at all points. But the character of Joan of Arc is unique. It can be measured by the standards of all times without misgiving or apprehension as to the result. Judged by any of them, judged by all of them, it is still flawless, it is still ideally perfect; it still occupies the loftiest place possible to human attainment, a loftier one than has been reached by any other mere mortal.

    When we reflect that her century was the brutallest, the wickedest, the rottenest in history since the darkest ages, we are lost in wonder at the miracle of such a product from such a soil. The contrast between her and her century is the contrast between day and night. She was truthful when lying was the common speech of men; she was honest when honesty was become a lost virtue; she was a keeper of promises when the keeping of a promise was expected of no one; she gave her great mind to great thoughts and great purposes when other great minds wasted themselves upon pretty fancies or upon poor ambitions; she was modest and fine and delicate when to be loud and course might be said to be universal; she was full of pity when a merciless cruelty was the rule; she was steadfast when stability was unknown, and honourable in an age which had forgotten what honour was; she was a rock of convictions in a time when men believed in nothing and scoffed at all things; she was unfailingly true in an age that was false to the core; she maintained her personal dignity unimpaired in an age of fawnings and servilities; she was of a dauntless courage when hope and courage had perished in the hearts of her nation; she was spotlessly pure in mind and body when society in the highest places was foul in both – she was all these things in an age when crime was the common business of lords and princes, and when the highest personages in Christendom were able to astonish even that infamous era and make it stand aghast at the spectacle of their atrocious lives black with unimaginable treacheries, butcheries, and bestialities.

    She was perhaps the only entirely unselfish person whose name has a place in profane history. No vestige or suggestion of self-seeking can be found in any word or deed of hers. When she had rescued her King from his vagabondage, and set his crown upon his head, she was offered rewards and honours, but she refused them all, and would take nothing. All she would take for herself – if the King would grant it – was leave to go back to her village home, and tend her sheep again, and feel her mother’s arms about her, and be her housemaid and helper. The selfishness of this unspoiled general of victorious armies, companion of princes, and idol of an applauding and grateful nation, reached but that far and no farther.

    The work wrought by Joan of Arc may fairly be regarded as ranking with any in history, when one considers the conditions under which it was undertaken, the obstacles in the way, and the means at her disposal. Caesar carried conquest far, but he did it with the trained and confident veterans of Rome, and was a trained soldier himself … but Joan of Arc, a mere child in years, ignorant, unlettered, a poor village girl unknown and without influence, found a great nation lying in chains, helpless and hopeless under an alien domination, its treasury bankrupt, its soldiers disheartened and dispersed, all spirit torpid, all courage dead in the hearts of the people through long years of foreign and domestic outrage and oppression, their King cowed, resigned to its fate, and preparing to fly the country; and she laid her hand upon this nation, this corpse, and it rose and followed her. She led it from victory to victory, she turned back the tide of the Hundred Years’ War, she fatally crippled the English power, and died with the earned title of Deliver of France, which she bears to this day.

    And for all reward, the French King whom she had crowned stood supine and indifferent while French priests took the noble child, the most innocent, the most lovely, the most adorable the ages have produced, and burned her alive at the stake.

    -Samuel Langhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)

    Jarek: In all probability she saved France, and after doing so, became a sacrificial lamb to seal the deal – like the old Romans (and others) putting sacrificed people at the cornerstones of their buildings.

    The English “www” transliterated into Hebrew is “vav vav vav”, which numerically is 666.

    Each letter has a number associated with it. Was this by chance? Terrifying if so. Or was it done on purpose to pave the way for the Beast?

    Tusc’s spirituality without Spirit is grotesque. Don’t try to glorify aesthetic experiences by calling them spiritual. Aesthetic experiences are valuable and renewing. That’s it. They don’t solve the dilemma of mortality.

    • tucsonspur May 31, 2022 at 8:39 pm #

      My Spirit is always aflame, measured in the power of many suns. It blazes like Betelgeuse. Yours, is perhaps measured in candle power, and not too many candles at that. You shine with the light of false gold.

      Aesthetic experiences can be inspiring, even spiritual, although I didn’t call them that as you say. You must work harder to feel Oneness with the Universe and remove the delusions of a God that doesn’t exist, no matter how comforting that delusion may be to you.

      It goes beyond aesthetics, certainly. It goes to recognizing a higher entity, a supreme prime mover, a power that has resulted in our creation. I’m willing to call that power ‘God’.

      There’s no dilemma in mortality. You live then you die. You only create a dilemma, hoping that your fabricated God will be the answer to it.

      Can that mumbo jumbo vav, vav, vav, 666, Beast shit. It’s undignifying.

        SCOTUS will be packed after abortion decision.

        Then they come for your guns.
        With that stacked & packed court.

        Not that your guns will actually stop them, or they worry about them. They are going to freeze you out economically: fines, taxes, asset garnishment, etc.

        It is that they feel a majority of Americans will be onboard to get rid of guns

        Once and for… some.

        And they know who most legal gun owners are via background checks. Private sales may provide a conundrum until original buyer/seller is forced to divulge and the chain is linked.

        The penalties for owning an illegal gun after the open period will be draconian and economically devastating.

        So the entire “they fell out of my boat in the Pacific” tact will be just an overused joking threat.

        This will create conflict and more chaos, but it creates the opportunity to present pro-2nd and conservatives as backwards revolutionary radicals who want to wage war on Biden’s America.

        • Disaffected May 31, 2022 at 2:45 pm #

          Not gonna happen for both. Abortion and gun rights are simply too great of issues to let go by ever settling them definitively. And neither one is necessary in the least to assert total control. Letting nut cases have guns and encouraging them to use them is actually manna from heaven, as it allows all manner of crackdowns to take place that otherwise would never be tolerated. More likely that they’d actually mandate guns for all so they could clean up on all the carnage. The PTB don’t live among us anyway, so they have absolutely nothing to be afraid of.

      One day you may come to understand “your” USA was nothing more than a sophisticated con job. You had no more influence or power than a common peasant.

      Step back focus and consider the actual time line: the nobility gained power over the monarch during the English Civil war. This political structure was replaced by a domestic version, with suffrage slowly gained over the ensuing century.

      Now, why would a system based on governance of an aristocracy going back 10,000 years voluntarily grant franchise (ie lose power) to the underving masses?

      Well, it just so happened to coincide with the growth and development of the major institutional businesses we still have today. Banking, military, energy, manufacturing, consumption.

      With this concentration of economic wealth came the ability to maintain control while providing the illusion of inclusion. The techniques of Bernays et al guaranteed the elite would never be challenged.

      So, since you had no influence when only the gentry voted, and you never had any power when the corporations took charge, why make statements like the US was overthrown?

      Lose the allegiance to faith, and the history of the N American conquest reads much more logically. Every move makes sense, including importing millions of ambitious, hard working proles to build out the country.

      But now conditions are radically different, so of course the previous generations have to be replaced. Viewed from their shoes, it makes perfect sense to eliminate people with demanding expectations of entitlement.

No doubt that things are going to get much rougher and intense, thanks to the corrupt Bidens and their corrupt supporters in and out of government. Not much being said about the importance of preparation, but purchase of weapons and ammunition, with training, is the best thing you can do for family and self. No guarantee of survival, but surely increases your odds.

      Yes, if I were to make any prediction at all about what the future holds for those living in the US, I would predict increasing lawlessness and crime–that life will become incrementally more dangerous, as it has for decades already.

      I think it’s a safe bet that people will continue to grow poorer and less secure, the dollar will lose more and more of its value, and more and more people will become desperate.

      I do have to say that surely city people would have to be pretty desperate to drive out to the country with the idea of robbing rural people. All my neighbors are well armed, and it sounded like most of them were out practicing with them on Memorial Day–as were we.

      And that is some very good fun–sitting in a sunny meadow on a nice day trying out my new AR with the family, and practicing with the pistols (a .38 and a .22). I have decided that I need a .22 rifle.

    A new Peter anecdote:

    To appreciate this you need to understand that Peter has lived about 2 years in total out of the last 3 years on the third floor of our home. In addition he and his wife (before her death in 2014) had visited our home hundreds of times in the 44 years that my wife and I have lived here. What I’m saying is that you’d think Peter would have some basic familiarity with the place.

    And so………… Peter came down to the kitchen in the late morning. He downed his morning meds after a brief search for a glass in several cabinets. He settled on using his sister’s special tea cup for water. He doesn’t know where glasses are kept, never mind utensils like knives, forks and spoons. There is no storage area in his brain for such minutiae of life.

    After the meds Peter decided to go out on the deck for some air, as uncomfortably warm as it was. This involves exiting via the backdoor from kitchen to deck. The latch on the door has two positions: vertical (locked) or horizontal (unlocked). Peter began to angrily fight with both the latch and knob. He began to pull on the knob using both hands with all the force he could muster as if he had been a tug-of-war team member.

    “Peter! PETER!! I yelled to stop him. I came over to the back door and, as I assumed, found the latch in its vertical position. I easily gave it a clockwise one quarter turn to the horizontal (open) position. I had hoped for at least a remorseful look of ‘Oh my God I must really look stupid’ but au contraire. Peter exited, took a seat in the shade and was asleep within a minute.

    • cowbell81 May 31, 2022 at 4:26 pm #

      Oh boy, what a special case. It certainly must be like living with a pet, although I am sure there are many dogs (and even some cats) that are more astute and better companions than Peter.

But we have recently concluded, as we look back over his life, that the crazy shit was ALWAYS there but he had devised ways of hiding it.

After all, we don’t need to give the haters any ammo to f#kk up Pride Month with, which starts tomorrow. The timing was off for the Monkeypox — it should have been rolled out after Pride Month and closer to the mid term elections in Nov. That way it could have been put to better political use.

          Whatever happened to bar bottles? Built twice as thick and reused over and over. For years that’s all I bought. 16 oz. Rheingold, Carling, Narragansett, etc. 35 years ago the deposit was $1.50 on the case. 5 cents a bottle and 30 cents for the case. That;s almost 4 bucks in 2022 dollars. It pretty much guaranteed they were returned. I’d keep them for homebrew. I still have 4 cases in their heavy waxed cardboard boxes downstairs. The only beer bottles my father ever drank and I also was buying them for years. I even have some smaller 8 oz pop bottle’s in the wooden cases from a local soda company.

            I remember the cokes at the local ‘Flying A’ gas stations being icy cold, so cold they were painful to ingest. 10c, sometimes I’d get 2.

    Voxday

    The day of the Uvalde shooting, a US Army MC-12W recon plane left FortHood/Killeen at 10:15am CT. It approached the Uvalde area ~ 11:02 and flew over KUVA; entered a pattern at 11:16, & landed at 11:25. At 12:48pm, the plane took off and returned to Ft Hood.

    The MC-12W is designed to intensify data collection operations through intelligence-collection capabilities in-theatre, allowing real-time full-motion video and signals intelligence for battlefield decisions of military troop leaders.

    Reports are that Ramos entered the school at 11:28am and was taken out at 12:50pm. Why would a military recon plane like this that had never been to Uvalde, land there and leave there near those same times? Did it drop someone off and/or pick someone up? Did they need to collect all cell phone activity by all players, to ensure their future narrative doesn’t collapse under a kid with some video footage emerging a year from now with a somewhat different set of facts?

    Jarek: Many mass shooting involve rumors of a second shooter.

      The moment I read that the trial was going to be in DC, it was obvious what was going to happen.

      As someone mentioned above, his fat hand was methaphorically still in the cookie jar, with clear cut evidence , and yet here we are.

      I think people are going to have to accept that institutions are irreversably damaged. What needs to happen next is the development of a parallel society. I see it happening, and it is going to have to shift into high gear soon, as no one with two braincells to rub together is going to want to live in Beast system 2.0, post Great Reset.

      Even my normie neighbors here are starting to question if the supply chain nonsense is being purposefully set in motion. One of them got clued in when they found out that a big Porsche factory near where his son lives has a large area strewn with brand new Bosch washing machines.

      Porsche has nearly emptied the market for the machines, as they are buying them to remove the computer chips for reprogramming in their vehicles.

    “It’s given me a business idea: to start an Amish skills school, buy a few acres with a barn and hire some Amish men to teach all us non-Amish how to do a few things that might be good to know in the years ahead, like how to harness horses to a cart or a mule to a plow. (The Amish like to make a bit of cash-money when they can.) That’s my idea of how to build back better. What do you think?” ~ JHK (from previous, recent article)

    I think it’s a great idea, Jim…

    Just some thoughts off the cuff (and not necessarily precisely related to nor critical of what you might have in mind):

    ? No-Till agriculture might be the way to go, at least in many, if not the majority, of cases. So there may be less plowing than what some might deem necessary. Maybe some initial plowing to get the fertility back up?

    ? Some people have allergies to farm animals.

    ? Many Amish skills appear quite useful.

    ? People arriving at your town for the education might stay on and live there afterward. So it might give the town a head start and over others in terms of its own revitalization and potentially lead, to boot, to a nice runaway dynamic of attracting yet more people and resources.

    ? Permaculture

    ? Transition Network

    ? Your Amish ‘hook’ would seem a clever way to go rather than calling it something else that might not be as immediately understandable.

    ? Other Amish elsewhere might be inspired to initiate this model and so again, we’d get a nice beneficial feedback dynamic going. Do different Amish in different places communicate with each other?

    • Shoplet™ June 1, 2022 at 1:01 am #

      The idea behind my mention above of the ‘Amish hook’ is similar to the idea behind leveraging what already exists– for example of using off-the-shelf-parts, rather than starting from scratch or reinventing the wheel.

      To add something that might be important:

      Theoretically, your blog’s setup– as-is, perhaps ideally, with minimal alteration– could be adaptively-reused for occasional articles/photos/comments/facts/opinions on what is happening in town and vis-a-vis The School, including from those involved.

      The reason why I think the site might work best if left relatively alone/intact is because when something is changed too much or too fast, there’s a danger that we might lose somethings in the process, including people.

      This site already has sections, like photos, garden, art, articles, and comments, etc..

      It even already has, in the header, a sort of Amishy horse-pull.

      • Shoplet™ June 1, 2022 at 1:09 am #

        Of course The School and related could be advertised and organized via this site as well, maybe including accommodations and transportation/ride-shares to/from postings board, a personals section for people seeking Amish partners, as well as discounts for less funny-money-advantaged people.

    The city of Severodonetsk has fallen to the Russians. And as if on cue we receive notice that it would only take 2 Sarmat “Satan 2” missiles to annihilate Atlantic megalopolis. Two more could similarly vaporize the megacities of Pacific-Cascadia. Is Ukraine the only party that will need to negotiate its way to peace? It is a fair question to ask who could negotiate on behalf of the US given the thoroughly compromised state of its political class. It is a somewhat satisfying series of developments given the full spectrum Ukraine idolatry of the Davos cult at WEF last week. The Atlanticists believe they are ascendant. Unable to see or comprehend that the cosmic juju if you will has shifted back to Eurasia.

    • BackRowHeckler June 1, 2022 at 6:31 am #

      Yet, yesterday Biden did approve sending medium range missiles to Ukraine. These are tactical battlefield missiles that could possibly hit Moscow if fired from the Ukraine/Moscow border. Not to worry, we are assured Ukraine will use this ordnance for strictly defensive purposes only.What’s more, several expert ‘Guests’ on MSM news programs state that Russia’s nuclear capabilities are eroded due to lack of maintenance and we have nothing to worry about on that score. It seems there are powerful people at the top who believe this and are willing to test the theory.

      • SoftStarLight June 1, 2022 at 10:25 am #

        It makes sense that the top of the pyramid wouldn’t be gun shy about a potential nuclear war. I suppose in their estimation a nuclear war would be a great step forward in the depopulation quest. They likely think they can fully survive such an event in their underground shelters or isolated hideaways.

        That said, the unelected German health minister is threatening us all again with masks and forced clot shots for “something” he sees in his crystal ball, set to arrive in the fall.

          The reason warnings about the US becoming a third world country keep showing up is because Americans would much rather eat meat than bugs. IMHO, I would rather support an agriculture based on cattle, pigs, seafood and sheep than one based on things that go click and buzz in the night.

          Anybody do a study to find out if bugs provide enough nutrition for human metabolisms. All those malnourished overseas pictures we see probably have open access to all kinds of critters.

          • rube-i-con June 1, 2022 at 10:32 am #

            i may prefer sheep & fowl as well, but the gist is that insect husbandry has great potential to feed the legions of useless eaters

        A huge mistake is concentrating on Biden.

        Biden is a shell and a shill for the WEF. People still think he is stupidly making mistakes causing all the problems.

        Do not believe it! His minions are successfully undermining the US in all ways to clear a path for the NWO here.

        Gas prices up, planned totally to make FF conversion, no plans to undo it.

        Inflation up. Debts shrink in comparison. It allows more tax and spend psychology. By the way, Yellen just admitted she was wrong in underestimating the inflation impact. She was wrong, not Biden. Bad girl!

        The border? Hahahahaha! More than anything, this shows the direct connection between Biden, the WEF and the Mob. The cartels are actually on the border, organizing the efficient passage of illegals into the country. 1.2 million so far this year. The real effect of this is not to lower labor rates, as a prime directive of the Dems is raising minimum wages, but the lowering of the education standards in the country.

        When are folks on a grand scale going to realize what these cretins in DC are actually doing, blazing a trail for the WEF to rush in and rescue us.

        The lesson of Sussman is that the 2022 election is not the shoe in for the conservatives. The Libs are so entrenched in our country that they do not have to fear retribution for their illegal activity.

        Sussman was open and shut, well documented. Unanimous not guilty. Remember every one of Trumps folks, Guilty, jail time.

            I think you have mentioned doing rather well for yourself by aligning with the Dark Side. One other option could be to decide that you don’t need to be all that rich. There are many ways to make a living with modesty and integrity. It’s a big country and a bigger world, with many fine people in it, whose company does not require a country club membership.

            Plus, if I were you I would be uneasy about allying myself with the WEF crowd. Are you sure they are worthy of your trust? Do you think you can depend on them? They strike me as being an unsavory bunch of crooks. Is it ever wise to do business with crooks?

    Oddly enough, grasshoppers are quite the delicacy in MX. Chapultepec (grasshopper) hill/park is the former seat of government in CDMX.

    In particular, I like to get a jar of ground paste, add some guacamole, and have a salad. I cannot tell you how rich and nutty it is; seriously, I’m hopelessly addicted.

    Anyway, as expected, commenters are once again demonstrating why the WEF is running the table. Everyone here knows the facts, everyone here knows the score. Every program, every initiative is perfectly logical within the overall set of goals and objectives.

    And yet, what does everyone do? Moan, complain, snark, criticize – no counter, no plan. Now consider this is coming from the 2% who know what’s happening. The majority are either pure animal (sub 85), normal drones (100) or intelligent normies locked into denial.

    So we take this super minority, and here we go on again again about insects, health minister dictates and so on. But we should know better. We know about the why behind meat substitutes, the drive for Vax tracking, the conversion to wind/solar, etc.

    It’s a waste of time complaining. Informed people better get busy presenting counters, or rightly conclude that it’s a losing cause and join in with the elite.

      The top down micro-management of 7-8 billion mammals is not the natural order of things, mitch. You exude the smug air of one of them, a self-appointed elite, a technocrat with utopian ideas that humans are going to somehow be controlled by QR codes and such like.

      It’s only a matter of time before a fabled black swan shits all over those sanctimonious WEF bastards. I hope you’ve got a big umbrella. I’ve got champagne on ice!

      I don’t think there can be a plan for what’s coming (you’re right on that front, at least – we won’t go on as we are now forever, and yes, most here understand that). It will be organic. And painful. Not ‘as directed’ by Schwab or Gates et al. My money is on a game of ‘last man standing’.

      • mitchellc June 1, 2022 at 12:02 pm #

        Ah, there it is, I was waiting for it: “its only a matter of time.” It sounds like … “two more weeks”. Or, perhaps you prefer “trust the plan”?

        Every conquered people, going back to proto human troops, have used denial and deflection to help ameliorate their defeat.

        It’s a natural bio chemical reaction to cope with the stress of capture/death. Ever notice how prey go limp and relax once they stop struggling?

        Like Nazi Germany in 1941, the WEF is on the offensive and in control on all fronts. Any black swans will of course be incorporated as an opportunity to further extend reach and control.

        The only poster here pointing out the obvious end game is JohnAZ. Now I admit thats really sort of a surprise because he’s come all away from a standard, novice political pov.

        Anyway, of course what happens, just like it already is, is that traditional white Americans will continue to move and concentrate in the Trump states.

        At some point secession will be first informal as the respective states increasing ignore DC. A formal declaration would come if the MIC breaks ranks and some nuclear capabilities side with the patriots.

        There’s also the added effect of Russia pledging support, which explains why it’s critical for it to be defeated and neutralized before any further political fracturing occurs in the US.

        I would suggest this forum would provide much more value if it simply addresses the facts at hand. It’s already one of the few places that is now discussing the WEF in rational, measured tones.

        “The mammalian immune system has evolved to efficiently ward off a panoply of external threats while minimizing, in most cases, self-inflicted damage. Many infective organisms, however, have themselves evolved sophisticated strategies to circumvent and overcome the immune response of the host.

        It is in this fascinating interplay that we have come to recognize that some parasites can directly manipulate and suppress inflammatory responses to an extent that actually protects the host from immunological disorders such as allergy, autoimmunity and the metabolic syndrome.

        A major question then arises as whether the disappearance of parasites from most of the industrialized countries is causally responsible for the relentless rise in inflammatory disorders such as asthma, inflammatory bowel disease and type 1 diabetes over the course of the 20th century.” ~ ‘Regulation of immunity and allergy by helminth parasites’, Rick M.

          I’m not so sure that there has been nearly as complete a disappearance of parasites as is generally assumed. I think there is a great reluctance on the part of doctors to diagnose them.

          One of my daughters had a parasitology professor in college who told the class that he had contracted a parasitical disease and told his doctor this. His doctor refused to take him seriously, so he finally drew his own blood and grew his own culture to prove it.

          Another of my daughters has chronic Lyme Disease, although now she is almost completely recovered. There are several protocols involved in the cure, and one of them is cleansing the body of parasites. I suspect parasites may be involved in a number of chronic diseases. They are just unacknowledged.

    Schools are now hosting Drag Queens, and even classes to teach children how to become them.

    Anglin:

    At this point, I don’t even know what the point of talking about this is.

    No one is going to do anything. It’s been as bad as it can be for like over two years. The only thing that could make it worse is when they finally come out and say “we’ve started to masturbate the children and teach them how to masturbate adult penises as part of their gender growth and development.”

    But going from “we’re grooming your children to be trannies” to “we’re having sex with your children now” is a much smaller leap than the leap from not grooming children to be trannies to grooming children to be trannies. So there is literally zero reason to believe that when they finally come out and say “we’re having sex with your kids now” that anyone is going to do anything other than talk about women’s sports.

    “I believe they have a right to have sex with my kids, but we have to protect girls’ swimming.” That’s a narrative you will hear.

    Jarek: Is he wrong? “Allowing” or making a child change their sex is small compared with “letting” them have sex with adults, existentially speaking. If this isn’t wrong, nothing is wrong. So expect everything in the near future.

    • MrMangoOnMyShoulder June 1, 2022 at 12:46 pm #

      A bit of a reach, and thoroughly disgusting to consider, but what they are doing already is shockingly wrong, so who knows…

      If what he posits eventually takes place, teachers and school administrators would be wise to immediately fear for their lives.

      School shootings would suddenly be parents targeting staff, not older kids targeting other kids.

      These programs and the people behind them are sick to promote and/or go along with this intentional slide into unnecessary depravity.

      Many adult trannies have been speaking out and saying this new direction is extremely unhealthy before the age of personal adult choice is reached. (Except for those that are going to elementary schools to show kids how to be a tranny)

      • Jarek June 1, 2022 at 12:55 pm #

        If the child can change its sex (or to use their word, gender), why on Earth would any one object to allowing them to take a lover?

        Your instincts are correct of course. But if they can get people “thinking”, then they’ll win. In other words, if they can get them to accept the above premise, it’s all downhill from there.

        Very few people will ever advance enough intellectually to understand why they believe what they believe – and be able to argue for it. In other words, good instincts, both innate and cultivated, are the guarantor of civilization. Not learning.

Of course the Pride Parades kick off this weekend and you’ll see some there, on a float, all dressed up, gyrating to the beat of Alicia Bridges “I love the Night Life, I like to boogie”, a 45 year old tune that’s still pretty catchy.

          I seem to recall reading mention of that song, perhaps by you, more than once…

          So my question is, is it a Pride Parade’s fave, or yours?

          Perhaps when the parade comes to town, you, too, could dress up, like with a dress, and get up (there) and gyrate too. Show ’em some support. Maybe make them so agitated and embarrassed that they call ‘The Whole Thing’ off.

      One of the Nation-States that I hope will energe when the Empire finally breaks up into its natural States is one I call the Nation of Buttfuck. Naturally it would have San Francisco as its capital, although it would need to include Silly Con valley as well due to the prevalence of Woke.

      There will be one universal law: no child bearing. If a citizen shows signs of pregnancy they would be immediately banned out into the old Disunited USA. Failure to comply punishable by death.

      The great benefit of this law is that it is self-limiting. Within a century Californian would return to becoming a natural paradise where cougars outnumber people.

Like the cops can’t find their way into some drug dealer’s apartment or house without a key? Of course they can

      They were there to stand down and let things unfold, then go find Groundskeeper Willie to save the day.

      “Nothing to see here, folks, but time for everyone to rail on gun owners for the next few weeks until we come up with something else for the public to focus on.”

    “Hauntology is a genre or a loosely defined category of music that evokes cultural memory and the aesthetics of the past…

    …is… described as an attempt to evoke ‘a nostalgia for a future that never came to pass, with a vision of a strange, alternate… constituted from the reordered refuse of the postwar period’… an attempt to construct a ‘lost utopianism’ rooted in visions of a benevolent post-welfare state. A sense of loss and bereavement is central to the phenomenon…

    Production often foregrounds the grain of the recording, including vinyl noise and tape hiss derived from the degraded musical or spoken word samples commonly used. Sampling is used to ‘evoke ‘dead presences’ ‘ which are transformed into ‘eerie sonic markers’

    …'[h]auntology as aesthetics is firmly rooted in the idea of nostalgia as a disruption of time… [i]nstead of mere repetition, this distance provides a sense of loss and mourning, […] and revitalizes the potential for a utopianism for the present age’…

    …[W]hen cultural innovation has stalled and even gone backwards, […] one function of hauntology is to keep insisting that there are futures beyond postmodernity’s terminal time. When the present has given up on the future, we must listen for the relics of the future in the unactivated potentials of the past.

    Hauntological music is stated… to suggest ‘an uncanny mixture of shared but faded cultural memories with sinister undercurrents’. Hauntology… was likened to ‘sonic fictions or intentional forgeries, creating half-baked memories of things that never were— approximating the imprecise nature of memory itself’.” ~ Wikipedia

    I don’t know if commenters here at CFN have given sufficient thought to the vastness of the universe and what it means relative to the existence or non-existence of God the creator of it all as spelled out in the Bible’s old and new testaments and other scriptures that are the basis for various belief systems.

    I think in particular about certain commenters like messianicdruid, Jarek and others too numerous to name. These are the true believers who have bought the whole story which I see as a collection of ancient myths. “Ancient” actually being a brief blip of time of about 6,000 years. Although, I can fully appreciate the appeal of believing these myths as literally true.

    A couple of weeks ago someone on this blog posted this most amazing and useful link.

    Astronomy Picture of the Day Archive 2015

    I bookmarked it and every day or so I spend an hour clicking on these photos and reading the “explanation” of what is seen in the frame. The images, (there are more than 2,700) particularly of galaxies, are breathtaking and when you read of the impossibly vast distances of these objects from earth, from our solar system, from our home galaxy, the Milky Way, it could change the way you think about EVERYTHING.

    When we look at the night sky, even with our unaided eyes, we can see the Andromeda Galaxy as a fuzzy little blip of light. That light departed Andromeda 2.5 million years ago and has been traveling at 186,000 miles per second all that time to reach our eyeballs. The diameter of that galaxy itself is about 220,000 light years. People need to mull this over real hard.

    And Andromeda is one of the closest galaxies. With our telescopes we can view others that are 300 million light years away. It boggles the mind.

    So when the Bible tells us that God created “his only begotten son” 2,000 years ago on the third planet of a very common star of which there are trillions and trillions upon trillions (I could write “trillions upon trillions” all day long and still the actual number would be greater) the truth of the statement, “his only begotten son,” seems HIGHLY unlikely. Why earth? Why the long wait of 14 billion years since the supposed Big Bang?

    I think the universe is literally crawling with life and much of it intelligent. Sorry folks, I’m not buying our ancient myths.

          Riding on the train from Tokyo to Nagano, sitting across from a well-to-do middle-aged, middle-class male, ostensibly-polite smile smeared across his face, and his third question, after the inevitable “What is your country?” and “What is your purpose in Japan?” (pronounced “papoose”) IS…

          “When are you going to leave Japan?”

          Quite telling.

      We peer into space and try to estimate the number of planets with “conditions necessary for life”, but we don’t know how life came to be in the first place.

      I think it is quite possible that the only life in the universe is right here on Earth.

      (And if there is life elsewhere, I doubt it looks anything like us. It took 5 mass extinctions, occurring at just the right time, to steer us from under the feet of the dinosaurs to the top of the food chain.)

      Want awe and wonder? You don’t need to look out into space. Look inside and consider the improbability of your existence, of intelligent life, of life at all. (But yeah, space is cool too.)

      @Shoplet:

      “So when the Bible tells us that God created ‘his only begotten son’ 2,000 years ago on the third planet of a very common star of which there are trillions and trillions upon trillions (I could write “trillions upon trillions” all day long and still the actual number would be greater) the truth of the statement, ‘his only begotten son,’ seems HIGHLY unlikely. Why earth? Why the long wait of 14 billion years since the supposed Big Bang?”

      Why would God take so great an interest in li’l old insignificant humanity on our humdrum little planet out in BFE at the edge of an unspectacular galaxy?

      Well, because God has gifted his own infinite life to everything in existence, so that the smallest little thing contains infinity and is of infinite value–as in Blake’s lines,

      “To see a World in a Grain of Sand
      And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
      Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
      And Eternity in an hour.”

      I think there is a touch of this same meaning in the first line of the Magnificat: “My soul magnifies the Lord.”

      In any case, this being true–that you are of infinite value and a God-bearing vessel–all sorts of other things follow. One of them is that you should comport yourself in a manner consistent with this great dignity and glory. Another is that the sacrifice of “His only begotten Son,” is the foundation upon which the creation rests and is an ongoing thing. And the creation itself is an ongoing thing.

      To me, all this stuff seems intuitive–although you have to do quite a bit of reading (and thinking) to get to where these ideas are clear, and are not just vague and amorphous. Surely you must sense these truths.

          @ Q. Shtik:

          “Only” begotten son is God Himself in microcosm, as human. Jesus is unique in being “consubstantial with the Father”–which I would argue that we are too, the difference being that our consubstantiality is imperfect due to our willfull rejection of our own divine nature.

        • Anthea June 2, 2022 at 7:16 am #

          You also have to bear in mind that Christ, as the third person of the Trinity, is/represents the Creation itself: God made manifest. So at a certain level, you can have only one Third Person of the Trinity. We are also God made manifest, but we are not the Third Person of the Trinity–though I suppose we are in potentiality.

          I think this is what is meant by John 17:

          21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

          22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

          23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

        • Anthea June 2, 2022 at 7:45 am #

          What we say of Christ (Third Person of the Trinity) is, “Through Him all things were made.”

          This is because the One God is the overarching “one” which encompasses the Trinity–which, in my somewhat heterodox view, are the male/female polarities of the Holy Spirit and Mary (the generative aspects of the Trinity) and Jesus, the creation produced by their union.

          When we say, “Through Him all things were made,” we mean that all things were made by Him literally giving away his life to the creation. So he is “the lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” We have life and being because He gave us His life and being.

          Thus He is “the only begotten son.” But at another level we are (or can be) consubstantial with Him.

          Many people are offended by the Church’s emphasis on humility, but this is what is meant by it: It is God’s own humility.

          I should caution you the my opinion about the nature of the Trinity is not 100% doctrinal.

        • Blackbird June 2, 2022 at 10:59 pm #

          Listening to Alan Watts last night, he said that “the” – as in “the” Son of God – was inserted by the Romans when they chose the books to include in the bible and translated from Greek. In the original Greek – according to Alan Watts – Jesus says he is “a Son of God”. Adding “the” took the management of one’s soul from one’s self, and placed it in the hands of the Church. I haven’t checked Watt’s research, but I’m inclined to agree with his interpretation.

        Could it possibly be that Jesus was His ONLY begotten son because even though the rational odds are against it, there was ONLY one world for Christ to give His life for?

            “Yeshua said to her, “Mary!” Mary turned around and said to him in Hebrew, “Rabboni!” (This word means “teacher.”) Yeshua told her, “Don’t hold on to me. I have not yet gone to the Father.”

            Jesus is not his name. It is his translated name. Once we get his name correct we can then discuss the heliocentric theory vs geocentric theory…

        • Blackbird June 2, 2022 at 11:10 pm #

          I don’t think that rationally, the odds are against there being only place in the universe with intelligent life – or life at all. I think it is likely that the only life in the universe is found on Earth.

          What is necessary just to physically put together the most basic of life forms – without even bringing it to life – is so complex, that the probability of all of those components coming together randomly, is, I suspect, damn near zero. I’ll put my money on a roomful of monkeys (not even chimps) cranking out A Tale of Two Cities before life appears elsewhere in the universe. James Tour, professor at Rice University, is an excellent source of info on the subject.

        So what happens now? Does Amber have to come up with the $15 million and send it over to her ex husband. Who enforces it? Also, what if she can’t come up with that much cash? I’ve read that Depp has made over $300 million in his career and has blown thru most of it. I wonder what the legal bill was for this one trial (and there have been others)
