Perhaps Arizona can adopt California’s new minority-friendly math curriculum before the election audit ordered by the Arizona State Senate is completed in a month or two. Under that new system of math, or maff, two plus two doesn’t equal four, it equals more, five plus five equals a lot more, and 1,672,143 minus X equals don’t-bother-me-with-your-racist-numbers.

It’ll take some kind of math or maff to unravel the mystery of Arizona’s 2020 election results, and the people who run Maricopa County — that is, Phoenix and its suburban asteroid belt, or about 60 percent of the AZ population — don’t want that mystery solved. So, they are not responding to a court-ordered subpoena to produce the evidence, namely, the vote tabulation files from their Dominion Systems voting machines, the county’s server routers, or the chain-of-custody records of the precinct batches of paper ballots. The county’s servers indicate that the folder containing the database of election results was deleted sometime after the election, so the county has no record of the vote. Hmmmm….

By a previous subpoena, the state Senate took possession of 2.1 million ballots and nearly 400 Dominion election machines and turned them over to the company, Cyber Ninjas, hired to do the audit. Problem was, the county didn’t hand over the passwords to the Dominion machines. Officials claim they never had the passwords, which suggests that the County Board of Elections never had control over their own elections, for which they are legally responsible. A curious situation, because the county says it conducted a previous examination of its voting machines weeks after the election. How’d they do that without the Dominion passwords?

Maybe the data was not stored on the Dominion machines but booted onto external hard drives, which would be against the rules. Or maybe the Dominion machines were connected to the Internet and information was booted into the Dominion machines from somewhere else on Planet Earth. That would be very very against the rules. If that was so, the log files on the machines would show time-stamps and where the outside information originated. Would that be enough for the State Senate to de-certify the Arizona election results? Or prompt audits in other states where the outcome is still contested: Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin?

An awful lot of interested parties don’t want a complete examination of the 2020 Arizona vote to go forward, including now the US Department of Justice, which sent a letter from its Civil Rights Division to state Senate President Karen Fann threatening legal action against canvassers directed to ascertain whether voters actually lived at the addresses recorded on their mail-in ballots.  The DOJ asserts that this would be threatening and coercive to voters — if they could even be found at these addresses. That was a week ago. So far, the auditors have not sent canvassers out and the DOJ hasn’t moved.

However, the DOJ is beefing up its home office defenses by appointing one Susan Hennessey to its National Security Division and one Lisa Monaco as Deputy Attorney General, assigned to run the little twerp in the corner office, Merrick Garland. Do they sense something coming at them… some possibly lethal threat that must be met with a rabid counterattack? Hennessey was general counsel of the Lawfare Institute, the gang of attorneys who coordinated with the DOJ, FBI, and The New York Times in the RussiaGate campaign, the subsequent Mueller investigation, and the shenanigans surrounding “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella and IC Inspector General Michael Atkinson in the first Trump impeachment. Lisa Monaco was special counsel to Robert Mueller when he was FBI Director and previously head of the DOJ national Security Division. Earlier, she was on the DOJ task force that was cited for prosecutorial misconduct in the Enron case. She’s the kind of lawyer Shakespeare was talking about in Henry VI, Part 2, Act IV.

Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr is reportedly ramping up an indictment of Donald Trump on financial fraud charges. He’s been dicking around on this for years. Do you wonder why he picked this moment to move? Pinning a felony conviction charge on the former president would be just the ticket for negating any undesirable outcome of the Maricopa County election audit, and any other formal inquiries in other states over the 2020 election. They don’t call it lawfare for nothing. The problem with that is ultimately you may be using the law to disable and defeat itself. You could say that these smoothies have just about succeeded in doing that. We are a country so far down the path to self-destruction, that the truth has been declared an enemy of the people.

    Ha! Thanks for helping me start my morning with a laugh, JHK. That first line is a winner.

    Our college (in CA) is spending its time adopting resolutions by the Asian community which include words such as “hxstory” and Phillipinox.

    And yes our ‘maff’ curriculum has been ‘adjusted’ to make sure that the white supremacists stop all those oppressive displays of intelligence.

        I’m *this* close to asking them to pronounce “hxstory”.

        Wouldn’t it sounds something like “hicks-story” or “hick’s story”?

        Isn’t THAT interesting?

            You flatter me, Ron – and maybe, inspire me!

            I really want to do a series on my dogs, for starters (they are hilarious, and I know how to bring the funny out of ’em).

            I lack motivation if I’m not collaborating, I think. That is probably my block.

          • Ron Anselmo May 15, 2021 at 8:54 pm #

            You flatter me, Mary – if I’ve inspired you.

            You’re smart & intuitive to have answered your own question. A collaboration is the answer – find he/she/them, and you’re off to the races.

            Serious on the full-circle return to live performance in small community theaters – a return to being human – being social – a warm gathering. A plus in the dystopian future, a return to more intimate things.

            You and your humor remind me of the writer below. Every time I read it, I laugh so hard, I cry. I’ve corresponded with her over the years, and she is one of the brightest, funniest people I’ve ever met – a real gem. Enjoy.

      New law proposed in Ct to teach ‘Asian history’ in the public schools.

      Will the ‘Rape of Nanking’, famine in NKorea, or Japanese medical experiments on POWs be in the Cirricula? Or just stuff about Panda Bears in China, and how healthy Japanese food is? What do you think?

      Brh

      • Beryl of Oyl May 14, 2021 at 11:01 am #

        I’m pretty sure I took something called “World History” in maybe the tenth grade.

        Of course that didn’t focus on race. Not that “Asian” is a race, although there is a determined effort to make it so.

        • tully May 14, 2021 at 6:04 pm #

          Yup, and American history in grade 11. Grade 9 had a full year of civics. All required classes.

          • Uncle Bob May 14, 2021 at 11:37 pm #

            Isn’t “civics” an ad for Honda cars?

            The effort to mal- and mis-educate the American people has been successful in setting up this country for destruction. Any attempt to direct the situation is met with derisive jeers, charges of racism, bad ESG scores, and threats of physical violence — or worse — from people who ironically believe the mantra that there is no such thing as objective truth or true evil.

          • mumbai May 15, 2021 at 5:30 am #

            In 1967, on the US Army base in Stuttgart, Germany as an alien working on the base, I did the university equivalency exam (auspices of Uni of Maryland) and one of the main courses was civics.
            I was totally besotted and convinced – this was the country of which I wanted to be part.
            Fortunately, reality intervened and I escaped its maws.
            Oddly, the many draft dodgers I knew in that decade (preNixon’s volunteer Army – and didn’t that work out well!) living the good life in civilised societies – less or more – ALL, without exception, returned to the World (as the GIs termed it).
            Probably Trumpsters now.

        I’m as white as can be but nobody ever taught me anything about my ancestry. Sure, I know my ancestors were English Irish Swedish Norwegian but this knowledge never gave me any cultural identity or ethnic identity. If you want to learn about your ethnic heritage simply take your cell phone and Google it for God’s sake—don’t expect or demand schools teach you about it

      • draupnir May 14, 2021 at 1:45 pm #

        I learned about the rape of Nanking in middle school history and have an accompanying film clip stored in long term memory, where it plays anytime I’m reminded of that incident (whether I want to see it or not, thank you very much), of Japanese soldiers digging a hole, then dragging woman and children to it, throwing them in and burying them alive. I know such things were taught in the mid ’60s. Things like small pox blankets and Japanese internment camps were, surprisingly not mentioned. I learned about such things later, on my own, and was considerably shocked, as I always believed we were the good guys.

        • Kevvia Knack May 14, 2021 at 3:35 pm #

          I was taught about Japanese internment camps in junior high school in the 1970s. And slavery in the U.S. and Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad, the US/Mexican War, Native-American mistreatment,etc. Racism was never swept under the rug. Again, this was back in the 1970s…and my school district wasn’t particularly known for its excellence. American history is euro-centric because the founding fathers were from England—-that is why there is a lot of talk about white people in U.S. history. I don’t think it is the responsibility of grade schools and high schools to devise tailor-made curricula for every race or ethnic group. That would be crazy. Unless they want to provide electives, maybe. It’s really up to the individual to take pride in his heritage and to do research on one’s free time. I would have had to have gone to a library in the 1970s to learn anything about my German or Scandinavian ancestors. Young people today of any race can learn about their ancestors simply using their cell phones. There isn’t any reason for them to feel deprived or victimized

          • Yohannon May 14, 2021 at 5:04 pm #

            In other words, out of One, many. They’ve succeeded in their evil and you’re helping to push it.

            More: Since Whites don’t dare to claim America and its history anymore, Blacks are doing it. They built America, right? Right?

          • MaryV May 14, 2021 at 10:03 pm #

            @Yo, those were Japanese Americans. Americans should not be locked up in internment camps because of baseless paranoia.

          • mumbai May 15, 2021 at 5:38 am #

            And yet they do. Your experience invites the comment “that was Then, this is Now” – an unending present in which the past controls the present but the present controls the (official) past.

        • Yohannon May 14, 2021 at 5:01 pm #

          In other words, you learned how terrible the Japanese could be, yet you want these people running lose in America? Because we locked them up, we become the “bad guys”.

          See the disconnect? How easily you are duped? This is why we’ve lost everything.

          • Kevvia Knack May 14, 2021 at 5:42 pm #

            If youre addressing me you seem to have completely misconstrued my point. As a working class white person I don’t feel any white guilt whatsoever

          • draupnir May 14, 2021 at 9:02 pm #

            We are the bad guys, at least no better than anybody else. Men at war are beasts. They wanted us to think that the Mei Lai massacre was an aberration, but I dated a guy who was part of an underwater demolition team in Vietnam and he once bragged to me that they threw a girl out of a helicopter–and laughed about it.

          • Yohannon May 14, 2021 at 9:38 pm #

            If we hadn’t defeated the Indians through force and fraud, we wouldn’t have been able to take their land. And if we hadn’t taken their land, there would be no United States – and no you, at least in the conventional sense in which you are now appearing. Thus you owe the Founding Warriors everything. All that you have and all that you are.

            Draupnir comes from a military background, yet she doesn’t even know the basics. Not to pick on you, Draup, no one does. That’s why we’re doomed. We’ve allowed all of our pride and sense of collective self to be taken away from us.

          • Yohannon May 14, 2021 at 9:39 pm #

            Kev: And no pride either, cuz that would be “racist”.

          • MaryV May 14, 2021 at 10:04 pm #

            White people commit terrible atrocities too, yet they run loose in America.

            I don’t see this line of reasoning making any sense.

            “They wanted us to think that the Mei Lai massacre was an aberration, ”

            A few decades ago, I got into M. Scott Peck’s books. He did rather turn out to have feet of clay in the end, but no matter – not the first or the last.

            In one of his books he discussed the My Lai incident at length. He was a psychotherapist, and had been commissioned by the Pentagon to produce a report on it and how it could have happened.

            Basically, his report concluded that in institutions like the army, personal morality tends to be swept aside by group psychology.

            The implications were such that he said the Pentagon declined to publish his report.

            All languages with gendered nouns will have to be torn down to the foundation – and then that dynamited – to make way for the new woke language. On the plus side, there will be far fewer words to remember, and most can be replaced with emojis.

            I’m just waiting to see someone try it with Russian, though I suppose Blackbird is right, and they would just declare everything neuter and even eliminate plural like most Asian languages, and render any sentence beyond ten words in length immediately impossible to decipher. I’m dying to see Dostoevsky Bowdlerized. I’ve laid in lots of popcorn.

            French cats and dogs of the female persuasion have had to put up with being wrongly ‘pronouned’ since forever, in everyday speech. Annabelle remains ‘le chat’ unless someone very specifically asks about her gender.

            Mind you, 99 women in a room with one man have also had to put up with the masculine plural pronoun forever too.

The fact she’s the daughter of Emperor Palpatine — the previous incarnation of evil, until GGG — should give people pause, but it doesn’t. Pay attention to Trump, and ignore everything the Establishment is doing, I guess.

That didn’t go as far as the elites wanted, so we got several more waves of progs, up through The Man Who Thinks He’s God (Soetoro) and his senior flunky (Biden).

          In any case, here’s a link for findings that the Arizona election results were, in fact, tampered with.

            Notice Cuomo was nearly out the door for eldercide and harassment, and then… crickets. Suddenly, it was all just gone.

            Mary,

            Like JHK, I have the dubious privilege of living in upstate New York (which autocorrect tried Gog make “hostage,” which isn’t too far off the mark). People were rubbing their hands with glee, thinking the adulterous, crooked bastard was finally gonna get some payback for things he’s done over the years (murdering old people; trying to steal all the ventilators in hospitals north of Westchester County and ship them to NYC, while flooding Upstate medical centers with NYC and Lon Gisland Covid patients; refusing to negotiate with public employees unions unless they accepted his preconditions, even as he maneuvered to steal their pensions; setting up the Moreland Commission on government corruption, only to dissolve it when it started finding trails back to him; announcing that if you believe in God, gun rights, the US Constitution, low taxes, the greatness of America, and other “discredited” ideas, “you aren’t welcome in New York;”- and many, many more). His handpicked AG, Leticia James, is gunning for him, so that seemed to make him more vulnerable — especially since she’s a communist woman of color, at a time when those seem to be quite trendy (Stacy Abrams,for example). However, it would seem that a lot of plutocrats don’t want to have to move to new states where they lack influence, so they’re pushing back against ditching Cuomo for fear they’d lose their asses. (Some of this may also be due to Cuomo knowing where the bodies are buried,so he can coerce people into supporting him.). Long story made seven longer by me, neither Cuomo nor James is worthy of their positions, but it looks a lot like they’ll be in office for life.

            Not that it’s going to change the successful steal of the last election, but if this audit in Arizona has not finally proven beyond a doubt that the Democrats were up to no good with the Dominion voting machines last year, then nothing ever will.

            This should be enough evidence to persuade GOP lawmakers in every state we control that they MUST take action to do away with electronic voting, not to mention, voting by mail. We will never have the possibility of another “honest” election, (if there is such a thing), until we return to strictly paper ballots with poll watchers who cannot be fucked with and voter ID required everywhere and ballot custody control procedures to protect the ballots in every box like we protect the gold in Fort Knox.

          • Blackbird May 16, 2021 at 4:30 pm #

            Wiz, we should protect those ballots better than we protected the gold in Fort Knox. Go looking for that gold and you’re likely to find a note: “Went out for beer and cigarettes – be right back”.

      Doc……not only is CW2 here, but the elites do not plan to participate. They are ordering mass quantities of popcorn via Amazon and kicking back in their fortified mansions to watch the rabble (you and me) duke it out with the Antifa / BLM scum. The goal is population reduction while leaving Oligarchs sitting pretty.

      • thirdcoastlegend May 14, 2021 at 11:38 am #

        Yup.

        CW2 fits neatly into the Great Reset and Gates depop agendas.

      • Chippenhook May 14, 2021 at 1:40 pm #

        CW2 isn’t here; not even close. Lots of chest thumping going on but it won’t go much further than that. If that fiasco at the Capital in January was a foretaste of CW2 tactics, it is going nowhere. It is hard to imagine anything more poorly thought through. It only served to erode public support for the cause while strengthening the Dems.

        Odds are much greater that we’re on the cusp of WWIII; not guns and missiles but rather biowar and cyberwar this next time around.

        • Uncle Abraham May 14, 2021 at 7:10 pm #

          You misunderstand the nature of this war. It’s started with rebellion against authority and has been ongoing with subterfuge, lies, legal chicanery, fraud, gaslighting, intimidation, and will eventually lead to bloodshed.

        • Wizard of the Saddle May 16, 2021 at 12:06 pm #

          I would agree that the hot phase of CW2 has not yet initiated, though we certainly have had a sufficient number of sordid, but still sporadic and isolated incidents, of politically motivated violence in the past five years to concede that we are firmly within “Bleeding Kansas” territory.

          “Cold” CW2 IS here, and it has been here since at least Jan. 20, 2017 when Democrats openly stated that they were not going to be a loyal opposition, but were instead opting for “active resistance” against a duly elected POTUS.

          This choice was no different than the choice made by the Southern States in 1860 when they made it clear that if Lincoln won the election they would refuse to accept the outcome and would resort to other means to secure their interests.

          Like the East/West Cold War of the 20th Century the only question now is whether a Cold War alone will prove sufficient to resolve the conflict or if we must undergo a hot war phase to decide things with finality?

          The answer may be, “a little of both.” When both sides fear a full scale hot war, but are frustrated by the stalemate that is inherent to a Cold War, it seems inevitable that we will continue to experience intermittent “hot” moments when each side loses patience and flirts with testing the other side’s resolve by resorting to violence.

          This far, only the Left has truly done this, as seen with the Antifa and BLM street thug violence against Trump and his supporters over the past few years.

          The Right is less comfortable with the idea of sending violent mobs into the street and has done little in response other than occasionally turning out 2A supporters lawfully bearing arms as a not-too-subtle reminder to the Left that the Right is heavily armed and prepared to exert its 2A rights as a firewall against tyranny if the constitutional order is overthrown.

          The Jan. 6th riot at the Capitol was not a 2A action. Virtually no armed participants. It was a spontaneous riot probably spurred by agents provocateurs at the rally. Nothing more. So the ludicrous failure of that outburst is no real reflection on what 2A supporters are willing to do if and when the constitution is clearly and openly overthrown and its “game on” time for CW2.

        • ThorsHammer May 15, 2021 at 11:15 am #

          O.G.

          The use of experimental biological agents upon human test subjects without their explicit and informed consent is prohibited by the Nuremberg Code. Nearly 30% of Americans have been used as test subjects for Pfizer and Moderna biological agents, the vast majority without understanding or consenting to their use as test subjects.

          The Nuremberg Code provides for severe penalties up to and including the death penalty for violators. That is you, Dr. Fauci and acting President Biden.

          The legal system is based upon a hierarchy of laws. International law as codified in the Nuremberg Code supersedes (Biden) tweets, administrative regulations promulgated by city councils, governors, military law, and national laws. As well as inside deals for immunity from the law.

          There are literally millions of qualified plaintiffs for a class action suit against the drug manufacturers, censors, propagandists and drug pushers who have enabled illegal emergency use approval of the Pfizer/Moderna biological agents.

          Too bad we live in a world where justice is something purchased by the highest bidder and owner of the largest army of lawyers rather than adjudicated by reference to law and morality.

            Dead-on Thor – nice summary, awesome. Keep it up.

          • ThorsHammer May 15, 2021 at 2:36 pm #

            To be clear, the case against Pfizer/Moderna biological intervention has nothing to do with their short term success or failure as “vaccines” , safety—theoretical or actual, or long term death rates or infertility. The Nuremberg Code is clear— under no condition may any government, organization, or individual treat human beings as experimental subjects without express INFORMED consent. By definition that excludes all children under the age of legal responsibility.

            Buy suppressing information about alternative treatments (AKA “The War on HCQ and Ivermectin” ,Pfizer/Moderna have proven the case for their test subjects inability to provide informed consent.

          • Ron Anselmo May 15, 2021 at 6:45 pm #

            Yes, on children: I have cousins who, for all their advanced degrees in humanities, arts, social work, etc., have always been mentally deficient. Seems since 2016, their conditions have only been exacerbated.

            They have now loudly announced on social media – virtue-signalers that they are – their two early teen daughters are so relieved and have never been more excited & happy, because they are now “vaccinated”.

            As you say, legally unable to provide INFORMED consent. It’d be a shame if we lived under the Rule of Law, and my cousins were incarcerated (at best) under The Nuremberg Code. I’d sure miss them.

          • MaryV May 15, 2021 at 10:54 pm #

            Yes. Justice is purchased by the highest bidder, and not enough people are upset by it.

          • Wizard of the Saddle May 16, 2021 at 12:15 pm #

            Codes? Laws? Rules? Regulations?

            Do Democrats impress you as people who give a fig for following the Rule of Law? For that matter, do Elites in general strike you as the kind of people who follow rules promulgated by legal authorities?

            Let’s face it: They wipe their posteriors with all such written regulations intended to constrain their criminal behavior. Just as criminals at lower levels of society do.

            The only difference is that this highest class of criminals has the money, power, connections, and influence to get away with their crimes and remain out of jail.

            In fact, anyone who goes after them will find themselves under criminal investigation for one thing or another and at risk of bankruptcy, ruination of reputation, and incarceration.

            Citing the Nuremberg Codes merely elicits hoots of derision from these high flying scum.

          Yes. Hollywood is the easiest place to see this in action. All other seats of Power – Legislative, Judicial, Financial, Propa … I mean, Journalism – are populated by old money handing down to snot-nosed kids who glee in their own perceived brilliance (much like Tekapo does) and those who have successfully played their game. Everyone gets it. Prosper or suffer/die.

          It works. For example, you can ask questions about that Tuesday or you can have a career in Journalism. It can’t be both.

          Fraud is one sided political litigation. Revenge!

          If Trump developed his business base in NYC in real estate, he competed with people that were a heck of a lot worse than he was, whatever they say he did. Where are those indictments?

          • Tekapo May 14, 2021 at 4:36 pm #

            Trump stuck his bare head up above the parapet, for five years. He knew what risks he was taking jumping out of NYC real estate … or at least he should have.

            As I have said several times – for Trump, winning the presidency was a really bad career move.

            While political revenge prosecutions are not pleasant (and not that rare), the reverse is just as bad, if not worse … that the rich and powerful get off unscathed.

            The Ford pardoning of Nixon for Watergate was egregious in the extreme.

      • Wizard of the Saddle May 16, 2021 at 12:33 pm #

        In principle, I agree. The rub is this: How does one define what IS a “political” prosecution and what is not?

        The lawyers will always have the final say.

        This is why such prosecutions will likely endure.

        The only real solution is for the GOP to grow a set and learn how to do it back to the Dems.

        Only a “balance of terror” will keep political prosecutions in check.

        Once you accept the fact that these people are untouchable you can re-focus your mind on other more important matters – like putting in a garden behind your house so you can still eat once the oligarchs have destroyed the economy and the trucks stop delivering food to the grocery stores.

            I hear you, friend. I have read the first 3 installments of JHK’s WMBH opus magnus and am about to start on the 4th installment. I also read One Minute After quite a few years ago.

            Yes, the 2A and a lot of organized resolve could set things straight…….but only after some sort of massive collapse of the current corrupt civilization all infrastructure has transpired.

            Until that happens, the black pilled viewpoint on the untouchability of the corrupt elites is the only rational viewpoint. It is a simple acknowledgment of the reality of the status quo. Daily events continue to reinforce this point.

            I believe that the slate must be wiped clean before there can be any real chance at restoring honest government and true civilization again.

    If the DOJ whores itself to these Democratic criminals, then the rule of law is dead. The vote is dead, as anyone can change the results to what they want, just pay enough money to the computer manipulators.

    Po. I think you should be a little less flip about the investigation, and there are election judges all over the US sweating Arizona out.

    We go into new territory if Arizona de-certifies their results. I do not think anyone knows what will happen if it does and the other states start investigations. For me, it is good, finally, that all the affidavits may be exposed now after the Deep State did its unanimous squelch of them.

    Even if Trump does not get in, removal of the slime that occupies the WH right now would be wonderful. As the Dems are in control of the DOJ, I would say that people may die before any info is released.

    Chances are, right now, that Deep State is about to become Uniparty as the overwhelming gimme state just continues to grow.

    Oh yeah, by the way, all you Libs who deny a gimme state? Better think again, employers all over cannot find folks for their jobs. Why? The people prefer to sit at home on the dole. Even at $15 an hour.

Hasn’t happened since Clinton passed some law in the 1990s making it impossible to hold anyone at the top accountable. I literally think they could murder someone on live TV and laugh about it, and no one would care… oh wait, they have.

      Keeping schools, closed against all reason, also helps keep jobs from being filled.

      Unless they can afford to pay someone to be with their children during the school day, at least one parent has to be at home.

      They can try to juggle their work schedules, but that’s harder to do than most people can imagine.

      The CDC head already admitted to allowing a union to have a say in what is supposed to be scientific guidance, yet she still has her job.

      “IF” the DOJ whores itself to these Democratic criminals?

      John – Don’t you think the past 5 years have already proven that such is already the case?

      It is unlikely to change. The rot is too deep. You cannot re-constitute a piece of lumber once it completely rots. You have to go get yourself a new pice of lumber.

      The DOJ can only be abolished, not reformed. Same is true for the entire federal government.

        True. Many conservatives are still bigging up 2022 and 2024 revenge scenarios. Even if – a big if – the elections are fair, a GOP Potus will have no more success than Trump did in defeating the DS. The only answer is bypassing the swine via secession. It’s already happening, and as the Biden/Kamala/Backseat driving Obama circus gets even crazier, the pace will pick up dramatically.

        • Blackbird May 14, 2021 at 3:52 pm #

          For those who have missed the last five years or so, elections are a joke. Want things to stay the same (meaning constantly get worse), keep voting. Want to stop the laughter? Secession. Seems part of the population has seceded already, since they aren’t subject to the enforcement of laws, etc.

        • Wizard of the Saddle May 16, 2021 at 1:35 pm #

          I am in sympathy with this point of view. But I admit a bias. My ancestors were Confederate soldiers, so I have a long-standing view that secession is merely a word to describe a political act whose design is to further the cause of political self-determination.

          Without a right to dissolve one’s bonds with an unrepresentative government, one lacks freedom, liberty, and self-government.

          The recent BREXIT by the U.K. from the European Union is a prime example of this principle in action. I Democratic, anti-freedom Libtards strove mightily to deny the right of secession to the British people and they damned near got away with that.

          The notion that all political unions are “perpetual” is about as goofy as the notion that all matrimonial unions will be perpetual.

          The fact of the matter is that people and circumstances change over time and the institutions that bind people together must also be flexible enough to allow them to reorganize those arrangements from time to time as necessary. Otherwise you have a formula for endless acrimony and conflict.

          Anything that can be joined can also be rendered asunder if the causes are substantial and justifiable.

        And as an aside, have you seen the prices for a new piece of lumber lately?

        The stench of inflation has remained sealed since President Reagan was getting the air traffic-controllers in-line. Modern-day people were kids or not even born yet. Modern-day people (ex. Venezuelans) have no experience of that sinking feeling of a life’s work becoming worthless within a few months of hyper-inflation.

        After non-Market zero-interest rates forever based on nothing more than creating nothing out of thin air and then cranking up the volume and frequency of that, it is time to pay the piper.

        JHK, can this be fixed, or is this by design? It hinders discussion not to be able to post links to good articles. It is not clear to me why some URL’s are rejected and others are not. Is there some kind of black list by the web hosting service? I don’t get it. I seem to encounter this problem no matter whether the URL comes from a right wing website or a mainstream media website. Yet, others seem to manage to post URLS in their commentaries. So, is this just some kind of bug or glitch? It seems very random….

Pretty sure this is a WordPress site, and on all mine I use ASKIMET for spam (otherwise the amount of it is unmanageable). But I’m not sure what its criteria is for weeding out possible spam. There are probably a lot of other factors that could explain it also, such as his internet provider, etc.

      This has been happening to me for several years on this board. For me, it’s always been associated with “politically incorrect” websites. Never had a problem with a mainstream website. I always save what I write in an editor before posting. That way, either the link can be deleted before posting, or you can modify it so it’s not an active link, or reference the link indirectly & assume readers know what you’re referencing.

    This piece by Matt Taibbi is one of the most chilling reveals of just how far down the surveillance state rabbit hole we have descended. The Leftist collusion to squelch freedom in this country is nearly complete. Constitutional protections have been rendered meaningless.

    The emergence of mass databases as tools of social control was a development that the Founders never could have anticipated. Freedom in the United States is essentially at an end. We literally are no better than Russia, China, or Iran under this New Democrat digital tyranny infrastructure.

    Now that Big Tech and Big Media are on-board, the social control will be complete. Orwell’s boot on your face forever is here, but it is a digital boot.

      Something I thought I would never see. Not just a former CIA director but one who blatantly lied, working for the MSM. Just one of many reasons the MSM cannot be taken seriously, and is no-longer the impartial Fourth Estate whose job it is to be the eyes and ears of the American people to hold their elected officials accountable.

      This is assuming they were ever truly “impartial”, but they at least tried to give that appearance.

      • Wizard of the Saddle May 14, 2021 at 11:49 am #

        Tully – it is indeed disturbing. I am an old school veteran of the Agency. Been out of federal service for almost 30 years now. It would have been unimaginable in the 1980’s for CIA officers to be media celebrities after leaving government service. At best, a few wrote memoirs of their service in those days and had to allow Langley the right to pre-publication review in those days.

        It caught my attention ten years ago when I started seeing a flood of former officers becoming regular “talking heads” on the cable news networks. It’s like the whole “secrecy agreement” shit went out the window the moment the Deep State decided that having former CIA officers on the news shows commenting on everything under the sun was suddenly a good idea.

        I remain flabbergasted by the phenomenon.

            It is. Intelligence officers are NOT supposed to be selected from personality types who seek fame, notoriety, and recognition, but apparently the screening process either does not work or no longer screens against these narcissistic personality types.

            The whole point of being covert is to not seek to draw attention to oneself.

            But, hey, the old Cold War CIA is long gone. The buildings are the same, but this 21st Century version of the agency is a vastly different animal.

      I assure you that Russia is much better off than the US. In the 1990s under Yeltsin they underwent “economic shock therapy,” which looked an awful lot like what the US looks like right now. Really depressing, with the oligarchs (former party apparatchik insiders who claimed control over state property) literally able to get away with murder. Putin is despised by the people who control our MSM because he put a halt to the economic strip-mining of Russia’s assets and restored some decency to the politics of that country. It’s not paradise–ask Edward Snowden, but it is a lot better than when the internationalists were getting their way.

      • Blackbird May 14, 2021 at 10:28 pm #

        And that’s why we have to take him down. How dare he not play by our rules. Forcing Russia and China together at a time when China is overtaking us economically. Could be our oligarchs are putting their money on the red horse.

      • Wizard of the Saddle May 16, 2021 at 1:54 pm #

        This is my view as well. Putin is authoritarian, but I continue to believe that he enjoys majoritarian support because most Russians were completely disgusted by the Al Capone style oligarchy that took over everything during the Boris Yeltsin years.

        Russia lives in a tough neighborhood and her people know it. They were well and truly sick of the Soviet totalitarian tyranny and oligarchy of the Communist Party. The last thing they wanted to replace it with was a Robber Baron Capitalist oligarchy largely run by opportunistic former Soviet apparatchiks.

        Of course, Putin is former KGB, but it can be argued that it takes a thief to catch a thief. Putin has ruled as an authoritarian Russian nationalist and this is the real secret of his success. Sort of like in the old days when absolute monarchs were often loved by their people if they were perceived as having the interests of the nation and its people first in their heart.

        Honestly, I think Russia is doing a better job of defending their national culture against the globalist oligarch class than any Western country is.

    The DoD is coming to the end of its ‘Stand Down’, its effort to root out “White Supremacists”, and “Right Wing Extremism” from the Armed Forces, in effect, a Witch Hunt. We haven’t heard if the Witch Hunters have found any White Supremacists in the Army, Navy or Marine Corps, but I’m certain it ain’t for lack of trying. (Note the Army’s latest recruiting ad, featuring a young tranny with 2 lesbian mothers) What has been announced, however, is the arrest of 3 black soldiers from Fort Campbell for buying guns in Kentucky and reselling them to their gang banging homies back in Chicago, 97 guns = alot of dead people. Think of the ‘Stand Down’ on Memorial Day weekend when you hear ever so briefly on the news that 100 people were shot in Chi over the past 3 days.

      • Wizard of the Saddle May 14, 2021 at 10:48 am #

        That’s easy. Leftists have always believed in those things, they are just more open about it now. They are also emboldened. They have been testing the limits of just how far they can go in breaking our laws and ignoring the Constitution and have recently concluded that using the battering ram of race politics is all that was necessary to clear the way for ‘the Revolution” that they so fondly seek.

        Add to this the fact that the teacher’s unions and universities are dominated now by radical Leftists and we have the perfect storm because now the youth of America are being indoctrinated to believe in the fairy tale of Socialism.

      Yes it is. I subscribe to Matt since he went out on his own (brave man). He also was able to renounce some of his former lib brainwashing, which I found really astounding and unusual.

      With the jailing of Assange, the writing was on the wall. Lots of apologists for the deep state love to get all technical with the reasons for Assange’s arrest. But skipping bail has never landed anyone years in solitary confinement, esp. when the case was dropped.

      And many deep state characters have called for his assassination, right out in public, so there’s that.

      You will not find a NY Slimes reporter who will tell the truth. They hire squawking heads only now. The intel agencies give them their talking points and they all comply.

      I was watching a hot mike picking up a health official before a press conference. She was saying to the man next to her, “I don’t know what this stuff is, I just read whatever they give me.”

      BTW, unelected health officials and silicon valley billionaires now seem to run everything, globally. So yes, journalism at large is dead, and so is rule of law.

        It is bad. That much is clear. Which is why I have been waffling between being Red Pilled and Black Pilled. At this point, I’ve pretty much accepted the fact that the entire constitutional system has broken down. The corruption of party elites is complete. They are joined at the hip with the billionaire class oligarchs and are quickly assimilating absolute power.

        For a time, they tried to cloak what they were up to, but now they are baring their fangs and don’t give a damn that the average Joe now is starting to see that they have installed themselves as de facto rulers.

        The key to their success has been the same as it was for Ancient Rome: Bread and Circuses. Today we call it Welfare Statism and Professional Sports / Hollywood Entertainment / Video Games / Music Starts / Reality TV, etc., etc.

        Same effect. The deal is simple: Don’t challenge our power and we will let you live and maybe eat well and be entertained. Challenge our power and we will Epstein your ass.

        The only way this ends is when the energy inputs to our complex civilization finally peter out, making it impossible for the Oligarchs to buy-off the population in this manner any longer. At that point, they will have to go full Nazi on us all. Mass extermination’s. Totalitarian state. The whole ball of wax. It is coming and people who are observant, alert, and still have some grey matter between their ears know it. This is why there is a continuous, non-stop run on the inventory of every gun manufacturer and gun store in America right now.

          Excellent overview. This is exactly how I see it and have for years; the Covid19 and lead-up especially clarified things. You are correct: They are no longer hiding their satanic cult rituals, they are indeed baring their fangs and don’t care what we think about it because they have already won.

          Destroyed by bread and circuses.

          Most of the population is completely programmed, but as you say, there’s a reason the sale of guns and ammo is way up and it’s not because we fear our neighbors. So a sizeable contingent do not buy into the Great Reset nor will go along with the New Woke Normal.

          I for one am very glad that they didn’t manage to remove our guns, all efforts were thwarted, and I do believe they tried to get that done before they launched this final ‘event’. If they failed at that, they may fail at other things. We shall see.

        “Lots of apologists for the deep state love to get all technical with the reasons for Assange’s arrest. But skipping bail has never landed anyone years in solitary confinement, esp. when the case was dropped.”

        You are somewhat behind the times, Mary.

        https://www.arabnews.com/node/1629916/world

        That was more than 15 months ago. And he was originally in solitary confinement in the medical wing.

        He was, more recently, in lockdown, as were other Belmarsh prisoners, because of several Covid outbreaks there, but not in solitary in the normal sense.

        And you didn’t say which deep state you were referring to, when referring obliquely to their apologists.

        If it weren’t for a British judge, he’d currently be down a black hole in the American legal system. And it weren’t for the American legal system refusing to accept the judgement, he’d be home with his family.

          • GreenAlba May 15, 2021 at 6:35 am #

            The thing is, OG, LHB, that back when Assange was removed from the embassy, I rather cynically suggested on here, since the May government was in Brexit-crisis mode, that the poor man might find himself a pawn handed over in exchange for a trade deal with the US.

            But, for now, my cynicism has been proved wrong*, although we remain in limbo on the question until the US presents its appeal against the British judge’s ruling. Given the reasons she presented in defence of her decision, it would be difficult to imagine how the situation would be any different on appeal, but I wait patiently, and hope that Mr Assange will soon be able to be reunited with his family.

            If the US side are trying to wear him down mentally by dragging the appeal out for as long as possible, they should only succeed in making the British judge’s case stronger.

            As I’ve said before, the long arm of the US judiciary will always be sweeping around trying to ambush him (and possibly to get one over on the Brits), so he’d be well advised to avoid international travel, once he’s settled either here or in his home country.

            *I also very definitely heard it stated by a minister in May’s government (don’t recall who) that the UK would not hand him over to any country with the death penalty. Hence, he could not be handed over to the US. I have not been able to find any record of this anywhere since, but I heard it with my own ears at the time. Not that anyone feels obliged to keep promises.

          O.G. – What next? See India. What you see in India today, we will see in the US in a few months.

          They announced victory over the virus in late April/early March (sound familiar). Having almost totally flattened the original curve using ivermectin and HCQ.

          Then – then they started ramping up the vaccinating with experimental mRNA (making recipients sitting ducks for a variant). Enter variant B.1.617, and cases, hospitalizations & deaths went vertical.

          Exponentially vertical – ~25K cases daily to ~400K cases daily – in TWO MONTHS. We’re led to believe that vaccinations would slow cases – the data is exactly the opposite.

          “Vaccines” promote rapid spread of variant strains and offer near ZERO protection against the variants.

          The “vaccinated” here, are in deep trouble. Set up. Led into a trap. A depopulation trap, precisely because they are “vaccinated”.

            What is the target number for US vaccinations that is continually bandied about? The target number for herd immunity? Anybody? Yep – 70%. Just sayin’…

            You might not be into numerology Ron, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they are. In Hebrew, and later Greek, numbers started out as letters. Those old texts are more than just words, they are multi-layered puzzles, understood only by those trained to understand them – and to tell the rest of us what they mean.

            I read an interesting book, The Most Dangerous Book in the World: 9/11 as Mass Ritual. Yeah, kinda over-the-top title. The author, makes the case, based on numerology, that 9/11 was a mass occult sacrifice. A problem I have with numerology, is that it’s easy to grab the numbers that support your theory and ignore those that don’t. As Bevis and/or Butthead said, “Numbers, there’s too many of ‘em”.

    The DOJ asserts that this would be threatening and coercive to voters

    This is what the World has become. A bunch of lawyers making up some noble bull shit to put lipstick on the pig of corruption.

    The DOJ is all of sudden concerned about, as part of verification of a hotly contested election for President of the country, voters getting contacted by his/her gov’t? And, for a limited time only, if you act Right now and buy, sight unseen, both the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, I’ll throw in the Holland Tunnel for free.

    If the DOJ is so concerned about the voter’s sense of … [I don’t even know what word to use here] … , well then they outta take a look at the activities of the IRS. I hear tell of many voters that feel very threatened and coerced by those yahoos constantly.

    Why would an American voter, while fending off the IRS his/her whole life, feel threatened verifying votes cast match Real voters? Do they need Dr. Faucci to endorse it as a necessary step to maybe, possibly, in-the-realm of near, almost likely some day normal? That’d get those nasty threatened feelings sealed-up tight, Right?

        And Biden declares the new rule is get the shot or wear the mask.
        Guess he is sufficiently dimwitted at this point to think this will motivate people to line up and roll up their sleeves.

        Sorry Big Guy—-not in a red state that never had a a statewide mask mandate, and cities starting to drop the local indoor mask mandates. Thankfully, sightings of people outdoors wearing masks are so rare now, I assume they may be wearing them due to allergies. There have always been a few folks who did that.

        Where I live is probably going to end the city mask mandate on May 27. Gonna be real curious to see what happens at national retailers with mask requirements for all stores. We don’t have any locations of the chains I have heard are are the worst–Trader Joe’s and Sprouts are both alleged to be mask Nazis. I think Target has one, so will be interesting.

          There are about 17 Democrats that are on the fence. Hmmm, mask or shot? He’s probably convinced all 17 with such a wonderful carrot.

          The other 30MM people – 40% of Republicans – have said, “No fucking way,” to the vaccine, since day one, and many who’ve never worn a mask, will hardly be tempted.

          If they are giving out treats for taking off the mask, I might put mine on, then take it off to get a treat. If I could only remember where I put it.

            Ron A, people move here to flee wokeness run amok: southern MO.

            It is an odd state, in a lot of ways. St Louis city, KC’s Jackson Co and Wyandotte on theKS side and Columbia are blue. St Louis county, KC metro north of the river and Johnson Co in KS have been going purplish to red.

            Rural areas and Springfield and Joplin in the south are red. The bottom third of the state has more in common with Arkansas in terms of terrain, ideology and politics, than it does with the two cities.

            As an agnostic person who was a Democrat for most of my life (similar to JHK), originally from the KC area I often chafed at the conservatism of southern MO. Over the last 10 years, that feeling has subsided as the Democratic party I knew once finally disappeared for good. And this past 14 months I have truly been grateful to live where I do.

          Masking has quickly fallen out of favor here in ‘Bama. Most here only masked up to be polite because it’s not the Southern way to “be ugly” about such things as masking up to go grocery shopping, etc.

          But most folks here came to realize that the masks are actually useless and unnecessary. The masks disappeared faster than vampires at sunrise once Gov. Ivey rescinded the mask order.

          There are a few “mask Nazi” stores left here in town, but I noticed that they have little to no customer traffic as a result. Now that the mandate is gone folks are voting with their wallets. Someone needs to remind the mask Nazi sore owners of this: Stay Woke – Go Broke.

    Previous involvement with RR, Crowdstrike,etc.
    Bridges has been working with the DOJ, even though he’s a convicted felon at this point, and crowdstrike for over a year now. And all of a sudden very sophisticated hacking is taking place connected to Crowdstrike

You can also try changing its address or ‘fool’ whatever detector is on here by using TinyUrl.com. It gives a link a new URL that may get through. I fool Twitter and FB doing that.

      My feeling is that the only option left for organized resistance to the emerging federal Deep State / Tech Oligarch tyranny is for State governments to call for a Constitutional Convention of the States.

      We’d still be at the mercy of unitary politicians at the state level, but at least they are a bit closer to the people than the federal elected officials and sometimes have priorities that are at odds with those of the elites up on the Potomac.

      My thinking is this: What do we have to lose? The Constitution is being roundly ignored by the Feds. An Article 5 convention may be the very last opportunity to try to fix things. Of course, the first thing that should be changed is to introduce a ban on political parties. That should be followed by a ban on campaign contributions of more than $100 per eligible voter. Furthermore, fiat money should be banned and the Federal Reserve dissolved and the formation of future central banks outlawed forever. Likewise, the 2nd Amendment should be enhanced with more explicit language affirming it as an absolute individual right. Also, we need terms limits. One term and OUT. Citizen legislature, not career politician legislature. Screw that. No salary or retirement for the elected federal politicians. None. They gotta keep their day jobs if they want to eat. That will keep them engaged with the REALITIES that the rest of us live with every day.

      I could go on and on, but I’m sure many of my fellow CFN colleagues will have ideas of their own to suggest.

        The last time that was proposed in New York, the voters rejected it, because we were afraid to let state government get its hand on the state constitution.

        We still had some real reporters back then, who were genuinely outraged at the idea that the citizenry was afraid of its elected officials.

        A Constitutional Convention is a part of the story line of John Michael Greer’s “Twilight’s Last Gleaming.” I mentioned it last week, when there was discussion of near-future science fiction. The story begins in 2025. Interesting book.

        • Wizard of the Saddle May 14, 2021 at 12:17 pm #

          Funny you should mention Greer’s novel. I’m about 75% of the way through reading it right now. Great book. However, I’ve been interested in this Article 5 Convention of States idea for several years now. I don’t see it as a panacea, but I’m pretty much for wiping much of the slate clean at this point and starting over. My only hesitancy is over the 2nd Amendment. If we ever lose our constitutional guarantee of gun rights we are well and truly screwed.

        You’re doing good today, wiz. I agree with you on what should be done. However, I think calling for a concon is very dangerous because it opens the door for the DS to propose changes that are not in our best interests. With the other side’s majority (at present) in Congress, forcing them to call a concon gives the DS the ability to eliminate your suggestions, while adding their own.

        Unfortunately, any changes have to be in the hands of patriots, while bypassing the normal channels.

            Not at all. Some of my Best friends in Toronto are Jews.

            I fell in love with Jewish culture reading Mordecai Richler in 1989. The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz. Brilliant. I read a lot of Richler after that but Kravitz is his Best work, imho.

            I love Jewish delis and sought them out as I travelled to many North American cities. Schwartz’s Hebrew Deli had the most amazing Montreal Smoked Meat, I can’t even begin to describe … sort of like pastrami but that’s like saying a ’74 Vega is sorta like a ’74 Corvette.

            Bob Dylan is the Best lyricist ever, imho. Not even close. Nobel Laureate no less.

            Charlie Chaplin to Milton Berle to Howard Cosell to Lenny Kravitz to Jon Stewart to Jesus Christ of Nazareth himself.

            Big fan of the Jews. In fact, their Holy writings are my Old Testament.

            I love all of mankind no matter how shitty youse all keep actin.’

            I find it unfathomable, however, that US Congressman must swear an oath to a foreign country, any foreign country. Do not you?

            I have told you multiple times that I don’t have any psychological problem at all with the theory that 9/11 was an inside job.

            You keep ignoring that, no matter how many times I destroy your basic premise. So, having begun by doubting your logic, I am now beginning to doubt your honesty.

            “GA, I believe that you provide my 2 quotes in effort to display inconsistency. They are not inconsistent.”

            I don’t care whether you find consistency in them or not.

            I care that you are a person who has stated you will be HAPPY to see people burn in hell. Not that you will watch (or avoid watching) with unfathomable pain and regret because you love them all, but HAPPY.

            That is the most important thing about who you are, to my mind, so it is what I will remember every time you say anything, scientific or otherwise.

          • GreenAlba May 15, 2021 at 6:50 am #

            And I’m still waiting for anyone at all to explain to me the mechanism by which they find themselves able to *love* a god who burns human beings, any human beings, for eternity.

            I’m supposed to be made in the image of this god and all I see in worshipping a being who burns people forever is psychopathy.

            I told you a story before (which you conveniently ignored) about a one-time friend of mine who was a baptist, with pentecostal leanings. Her parents were atheists, and were quite surprised when she converted.

            But they were good parents and had take care of her and her sister in all the ways that good parents do. And her particular faith means she has to believe that the parents she loved are burning in hell forever, for the sin of not believing something in the absence of any evidence.

            How does a person live with that, 24 hours a day? And smile about god? I’m curious.

          • GreenAlba May 15, 2021 at 7:52 am #

            And the technicality I was referring to, OG, LHB, mirroring your own phrase, was the word wizardry I knew you’d engage in to try to walk back from saying watching people burning was going to make you HAPPY.

        • Wizard of the Saddle May 16, 2021 at 3:25 pm #

          That’s the rub, for sure. No one can think of an absolutely foolproof way to keep Libtards from hijacking an Article 5 Convention and that also gives me serious pause.

          The better alternative is obviously secession of the Free States and a formation of a new confederation of free states.

          The Confederation of Free States (CFS). Has a nice ring to it, no?

          But that means CW2 goes hot immediately. Libtards will never agree to a peaceful separation. They are leeches. We are the host. No leech ever detaches from a host voluntarily. Force will be required in every such instance to effect a permanent separation.

          This is why all true Americans need to own firearms and be competent in their usage. At some point in time, the sovereign states of this union that have a free state orientation will need to reconstitute state militias and it will expedite that process if the citizen patriots of said states are armed and ready to serve.

          • Blackbird May 16, 2021 at 4:50 pm #

            “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of the free State…” It’s in the constitution (for now). The states, more specifically the people in them – have been negligent in upholding their constitutional duty.

      • Blackbird May 14, 2021 at 12:03 pm #

        I think the US Constitution was flawed from the beginning, set up to limit the freedoms of the unwashed masses and protect the power of the elite. But this is hardly the time to revise it. Remember, not just reasonable people will have a hand in “re-imagining” the “law of the land”. Put the Constitution on a gurney and roll it into the operating room and see what kind of Frankentution monster comes rolling out.

        • Wizard of the Saddle May 16, 2021 at 3:42 pm #

          You are probably right. Secession is the better option.

          Bottom line is this: “Freedom is not free.”

          The reason everyone on the Right is twisting themselves up like pretzels over “what to do” is because too few people have reached the final conclusion that CW2 will have to happen if they want to be free of the emerging Wokester Socialist tyranny.

          The prospect of an honest-to-God, bloody, Yugoslav style civil war causes the blood to drain from most people’s faces. That is totally comprehensible. War is an awful thing and civil wars tend to be the most awful.

          Nevertheless, there are worse alternatives to fighting and possibly dying. Allowing oneself to be placed under the yoke of a totalitarian regime is a fate that is worse than death.

          I should not have to explain why to anyone who regularly posts here. This is a forum of much higher than average IQ’s for the most part. But we here at the CFN blog are not “most people.” Therein is the problem. Most people are soft. Most people are poorly educated. Most people are apathetic, or greedy, or non-serious. Most are simply sheeple. Happy to give ground forever to a tyrannical state so long as the Bread and Circuses are maintained in their operation.

      • abbybwood May 14, 2021 at 12:59 pm #

        I think an event like that would be easily sabotaged.

        Midterms are around the corner. We need state legislatures in swing states to clean up their elections.

        Plus if the Senate goes along with SR 1 (House already passed it), this law will federalize election rules allowing ballot harvesting, massive mail-in voting for weeks, un-monitored drop boxes on every corner etc., no signature verification/ID requirements etc. This legislation is the big Dem coup. Lawsuits will be swirling around en masse.

        Which is why Dr. Jill and Jennifer Garner are wining and dining Sen. Joe Manchin now in West Virginia. I hope he doesn’t buy what they are selling.

        We have bigger fish to fry I think than spinning our wheels with ANY conventions that can be easily infiltrated with agent provocateurs.

        I’m a member of a Mewe group, Take America Back.

        This group is promoting a Convention of States as called for in Article 5 of the Constitution. Such efforts have failed many times, because various factions want different things. The current effort would allow states to discuss amendments that deal with only three things:
        1. limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government
        2. imposing fiscal restraints
        3. placing term limits on federal officials

        This could be successful if 34 states will pass resolutions calling for the convention.

        • Wizard of the Saddle May 16, 2021 at 3:53 pm #

          I like the idea, but I also confess that I do see the possibility that any seated convention could go “off-topic.”

          Precedent?

          The Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787. Originally called to “revise” the Articles of Confederation.

          The Founders almost immediately threw the Articles under the bus and wrote a whole new constitution from scratch.

          It turned out well, but only because the delegates were largely the same group of people who fought the Revolution and drafted the Articles. So there was no real danger of them going off on a wildly different tangent.

          But is has been over two centuries and much has changed. Modern American society is not made of the kind of enlightened folks who founded the country. Only about 1/3 of the citizens are even directly descended from the founding stock any more. I readily concede it is risky. Of course, the status quo cannot stand either.

          The center cannot hold.

          Something has to give. And eventually it will.

    The lawyers and government employees listed in the article are all sipping margaritas in the same giant hot-tub together. It’s located in DC and they know they can do exactly as they please — including deleting election results, forgetting the passwords, and giving the voters of Arizona, and by extension, the US voters, the middle finger.

    They know that we know (making only the most gullible really believe they’re in any sense patriots) the system is corrupt and there’s not a damn thing we can do about it. Their arrogance and thinly veiled contempt directed at the people who disagree with them or don’t hold the same views are not even disguised anymore.

    For years, 70% of the public in poll after poll wanted a form of public health insurance for everyone yet what did we get? The Orwellian Affordable Care Act which jacked up premiums and the cost of medicine to stratospheric levels. And the Republicans are no better. They accept plenty of loot from medical lobbies.

    • MaryV May 14, 2021 at 12:24 pm #

      I knew at the time, and posted often, about the ACA being a GOP plan from the early 1990s but the Dems were in the throes of ecstasy at having elected Black Jeebus so no one would listen.

      Even after Obama personally went to visit Dennis Kucinich to strong-arm him (threaten?) to drop the single payer bill he had proposed that was very popular.

      By 2008, they must have known that people had been programmed and dummied down enough that they’d go against their own interests as long as they put a minority in charge as a ‘historical first’. Obama’s propaganda campaign was irresistible to lefties. They knew exactly what to do to appeal to them. It’s even worse now, as TDS reprogrammed most of the left to support the neocons they once hated and the spook agencies.

      Talk about mission accomplished.

      • SW May 14, 2021 at 12:59 pm #

        And then gerrymandered Kucinich out of his Ohio district. Yep, mission accomplished all the way. I think people, including people in Congress, were afraid to criticize him b/c they’d be accused of being racist. So here we are — ANY criticism is considered racist no matter what the topic.

        USA systematically slated for destruction.

        We’ve lost the institutions of higher learning, we’ve lost the education of our children, we’ve lost our private clubs, we’ve lost our ability to hire the best people for the job, we’ve lost the entertainment industry and practically all professional sports (besides hockey, which will be “woke” in another 5 years). We’ve lost all the government alphabet agencies (FBI, CIA, NSA, NASA, IRS, DHS, INS etc.)

        We’ve lost both major political parties and we’re on the cusp of losing our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights as well as our choice of professional healthcare. And we’re about to lose our National Military.
        We’re just a few years shy of being completely shut out of the Nation our ancestors built for us.

        It’s the 1870s all over again, only this time WE’RE the Plains Indians.
        Theodore Roosevelt believed the Indians were destined to vanish under the pressure of white civilization, stating in an 1886 lecture:
        “I don’t go so far as to think that the only good Indians are dead Indians, but I believe nine out of ten are, and I shouldn’t like to inquire too closely into the case of the tenth.”
        This is exactly what non-whites think about whites today, and is supported by probably 20% of whites themselves.

Hell, even this not so cheap shit Apple iPad I’m typing this on was made in a Chinese factory thanks to Apple abandoning our shores to do their manufacturing over there.

            Clearly, we are all going to have to adjust our habits going forward. China is a rising power and they are going to mop the floor with this country if we do not completely halt and obliterate this multikulti Woke bullshit that currently holds sway here.

            100% correct. America was a success because of the unifying culture passed down by the Founders. Even with the influx of non-British Europeans we managed to maintain that culture through assimilation until 1965.

            Then we allowed Teddy Kennedy to plant the time bomb that is now detonating.

            Worst thing we ever did was to change the immigration laws in 1965. Even worse than the errors made in 1964 with empowering the descendants of former slaves.

            Between those two major errors, it was inevitable that America would reach the breaking point it is at.

            My Tribe and your Tribe are at war. It’s already happened – in the future.

            We’re not descended from Negroes. Their genotype contains something (a ghost species) we don’t have at all. They are a late development and not the people who left Africa to colonize the world.

            Oh dear … so sad.

            Poor Yoho can’t handle the harsh scientific reality that his chubby little white ass is directly descended from them negro savages hangin’ out in the African jungle. LOL.

            Homo sapiens evolved just once – one line from Southern Africa 200K years ago, and they radiated out right around the world, replacing earlier hominid species (Java Man, Peking Man, and eventually the Neanderthals in Europe).

            One of your ancestors many millennia ago was born with slightly paler skin, and they prospered because of greater ability to absorb Vitamin D, and also at higher latitudes, their was less need to block out strong UV rays.

            Blond hair evolved too – so the human race spans the full gamut from the most extreme blond Swedes through to darkest black Ethiopian, and everything in between – Asians, Slavs, Indians …

            Despite all the apparent external differences, they are trivial, and are nothing but random mutations, or genuine adaption to local conditions. We are all 99.999% identical.

            Enjoy your humanity Yoho … but you ain’t special!

            I do think the usa will break up and tribalize eventually.

            If i was ranking factors for future usa tribal divisions in order of importance I might go:

            1. Locale (regions)
            2. Philosophical divisions
            3. Racial groupings
            4. Physical “fitness”

            2. Philosophical divisions
            3. Racial groupings
            4. Physical “fitness”

            Obviously all those are important, but I think it would also depend critically on energy resource, food production, water, access to ports, industrial capacity, and similar nuts & bolts.

            For example, you would think Montana and Wyoming would need to be with Washington and Oregon, rather than just the Dakotas.

            California could survive on its own, and possibly Texas.

            Homo sapiens evolved just once

            Tekapo, for you or anybody who is interested here is my research in the matter:

            Australopithecuswas one of the first primate species to walk upright on two feet, in the Pliocene. Australopithecus then split into two lines: robustus and the more lightly built and omnivorous africanus.

            In the Palaeolithic, Homo habilis was the earliest ‘human’ species having evolved from Australopithecus africanus although robustus continued to co-exist for a while along with a possible ‘Third Man’ descended from africanus.

            Homo erectus evolved from Homo habilis with an increasing brain and body size but Australopithecus robustus and the possible Third Man are believed to have gone extinct by 1,200,000 BC.

            Around 1,000,000 BC Homo erectus spread from Africa into Eurasia continuing to evolve an increasing brain size. There is also evidence of the first use and control of fire around then.

            Homo heidelbergensis evolved from Homo erectus with an even larger brain and more advanced tools; there is evidence of heidelbergensis in British Isles around 500,000 BC.

            Homo heidelbergensis then split into two lines: Homo sapiens (Africa) and Neanderthals (Eurasia). Anatomically modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) evolved in Africa while the Neanderthals inhabited Eurasia. Both species were still primitive in their use of tools, behavior and innovation.

            Around 50,000 BC modern Homo sapiens (called Cro-Magnons in Europe) broke away from warm areas of Eurasia into Neanderthal Europe with some interbreeding take place. The earliest evidence of Cro-Magnons in the British Isles is 30,000 BC and Neanderthals were either killed off or assimilated by Cro-Magnons around that time.

            The Mesolithic Stone Age marked the end of Last Ice Age around 12,000 years ago (funnily enough there were no CO2-emitting cars or planes then, but still) at which time Homo sapiens (Cro-Magnons) were the only existing hominid species in Britain and spread across whole of British Isles.

            Alternatively, the Earth is only six thousand years old and it was all done with the wave of a magic staff and rod. In which case, disregard.

          • MaryV May 15, 2021 at 10:40 am #

            Great job, Slugoon.

            This is along the lines of what I had studied in my biological anthropology class a few years ago.

            Fascinating stuff. Much more involved than people realize.

            O, yes, it could just be 6K years ago someone waved a magic wand.

          • Tekapo May 15, 2021 at 8:54 pm #

            And not only is every human being on the planet descended from a single homo sapiens genesis in Africa, there is evidence that there was a real bottleneck about 75,000 years ago, following the huge volcanic eruption of Mt Toba.

            According to the genetic bottleneck theory, human populations sharply decreased to 3,000–10,000 surviving individuals, which is not very many at all.

            So not only is Poor Yoho descended from them negro savages, he is very closely related to all of them!

    “Perhaps Arizona can adopt California’s new minority-friendly math curriculum…”

    Arizona? California’s?

    You mean the public school’s new curriculum?

    Because just like everything else, it does not apply to the elite, and their schools.

    Just as:

    -The poor immigrants streaming across the border do not live in their neighborhoods, go to their schools, take their jobs, use their hospitals, etc.

    -high gas prices, odometer taxes, expensive airfare, does not curtail their travel, their freedom.

    -inflation witnessed in basic home expenses: food, energy, medication, etc., does not affect them as it does those living on a budget.

    -shortages and cost run-ups in protein, be it beef or chicken, does not change their diet, their eating habits.

    -shortages and prohibitive pricing in the vehicle market does not factor in to their next auto purchase.

    and on, and on, and on…

    But if you have not been paying attention, well, you might be forgiven, but you will not be spared.

    Because this is all going according to plan.

    The world and society you inhabit is totally alien to the world of the elite.

    Alien, and disregarded.

    The bed they’re making is for you to lie in.

    This is the reset.
    This is the reduction.

    Now, in action.
    You are witnessing the transition. Daily.

    You and your progeny will simply be priced-out of the new world.
    The new order of things.

    And they and their paid-off help will tell you that it’s not a class issue, despite all the evidence to the contrary.

    They will tell you that blaming the wealthy is anti-American, socialist, communist, etc., despite that being the exact world they are creating for… YOU.

    And even if it is an issue, for you, what are you going to do?

    Write their congressman?

          Back when the Nazi and later Communist regimes were rounding up people and taking them off to camps – why didn’t they resist? Did they think they’d survive?

          Another good book: Six Bells off Java. Dutch citizens on a boat escaping the Japanese occupation of the Dutch East Indies in the spring of ’42 couldn’t believe that the Japanese would intern all of them. They made the captain of the vessel return to port. They were wrong. Few lived to regret their mistake.

      Avatar is right. One has to pay attention. And I don’t mean to what they want you to think. I learned that growing up under a junta. All the local NYT & CNN local equivalents blaring, “there’s no disappeared! only malcontents question the gov! We sunk another British ship, and we’re winning this war!” If you questioned any of that: “conspiracy theorist! communist! anarchist!”

      All bullshit. All lies. Ignore the media. Think for yourself. Put 2 & 2 together, your observations, your instinct. It’s Darwinian, an acquired trait, a survival strategy: assume the worst. Plan for the worst. Dante: “lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch’entrate” – abandon all hope, ye who enter. That’s the world, not hell as Alighieri dreamed. The Greeks saw hope as a liability, and I see why. It blinds you. It keeps you hoping a hopeless system of gluttony and greed will reform itself. It won’t. One has to opt out of the system, embrace voluntary poverty, renounce the perks and privileges of stocked shelves and endless tv. You have to be a mouse and get out the way of Moloch. You have to pay attention. Good insight. So many distracted, conned by the carnie: “look here! not there! look, a rabbit!”

            If you knew the shit that is consumed there that is flat outlawed here in Europe, you would never eat anywhere other than a farmer’s market again.

    I appreciate Mr. K’s dedication to searching out answers to what are supposed to be logical political and legal processes. And his consistency. Two things that are not in any sort of great supply in our current “culture”, and certainly not within the political and legal circles that populate our society’s “institutions”. The fact that more of the population is not emulating his behavior reveals a dramatic dearth of common sense and critical thinking.

    • MaryV May 14, 2021 at 2:44 pm #

      Critical thinking seems to be non-existent these days. The ones the used to know how, are too scared to do it, and the younger ones were probably never taught.

      • SoftStarLight May 14, 2021 at 3:31 pm #

        Is it non-existent or just turned off? I am more inclined to think its a feature that can be turned off or on depending on environment and social cues and pressures. I saw an interesting video the other day about changes in the brain that occurred in researchers who were stationed at the South Pole for I think it was three months or maybe six. But the changes that occurred in their brains due to just isolation and monotony were profound. But also reversible. There were actual chemical changes noted in the hippocampus.

        • Blackbird May 14, 2021 at 3:38 pm #

          People who have turned off critical thinking cannot turn it back on – and wouldn’t want to anyway. Less reversible than a sex-change operation.

        • MaryV May 14, 2021 at 3:54 pm #

          Agree, for those that have the ability, it’s simply switched off because the fear portion of the brain is in the driver’s seat.

          And so does isolation, big time!

            I acknowledge your point with my saying, “two birds with one stone”. I simply show you the corollary or the other point.

            Take a segment, ab. You’re talking about a and ignoring b. But the a implies the b. Thus is the nature of segments. If White men are marrying Black women and having kids with them, they won’t be marrying and having kids with White women.

            I probably could have kept us out of the ditch by adding “or men of any color” after the “white men”, the point being the wide-spread lack of responsible men in the lives of black women. I’m no demographer, but I would suspect that there roughly as many unmarried black fathers as there are unmarried black mothers. For some reason the attraction seems temporary.

            Marriage is weak among this breed, my fine feathered friend. We see the same in Black Africa. The nuclear family is weak but the Clan is strong: the kids get shunted off to relatives when the pair go their separate ways.

            Yes – when we dominated them psychically and before welfare, they used to imitate us. Now they return to form, but without the healthy clan influence I’m afraid.

    @JHK re: technical terms, other

    The word ‘boot’ in that context is iffy, even if most of us would recognize the non-computer colloquialism. The word ‘exfiltrate’ is the correct word for this context, and is surgically precise at calling out the crime.

    As for logging, the machines will log what Dominion engineers ask them to log. There might not even be sufficient logging written into the code, let alone enabled at varying levels. This is hopefully a line of inquiry, and should lead to the authority that vetted/approved Dominion machines for use. The machines should have been able to pass a baseline audit before approval. Where is that audit? Should be public record, eh?

    If these Ninja fellows are careful, and advance from the ‘Al Capone tax avoidance’ unexpected angle, this could get interesting.

Two things that are not in any sort of great supply in our current “culture”, and certainly not within the political and legal circles that populate our society’s “institutions”. The fact that more of the population is not emulating his behavior reveals a dramatic dearth of common sense and critical thinking.

    Then why am I one of the very few on here prepared to use critical thinking?

    One of few to articulate that the Arizona exercise does not look honest, organised, or kosher, and isn’t even close to being a non-partisan, competent election audit.

    The outfit brought in – Florida’s “Cyber Ninjas” ffs – is owned by ardent pro-Trumpers, and is being “advised” by QAnon types who fervently believe the election was stolen.

    That instills a lot of confidence, what?

    Especially after they brought in blacklights to check for the secret watermark, and microscopes to check for bamboo in the paper. They are chasing any & every piece of alleged conspiracy fucknuttery. It’s not an audit, it’s a transparent fishing expedition (or if you prefer, a witch-hunt).

    As I have mentioned previously, I believe the Arizona Republicans have shot themselves in the foot on this.

    Had they had genuine concerns about the conduct of the election in Maricopa County, they should have engaged professional, experienced, non-partisan election auditors whose results might have had some credibility.

    Who is going to believe any “results” from the Beagle Boys in white shoes – other than those who are already inclined to believe the election was stolen? The right-wing media will be in a froth for a few days, the Dems and MSM will mock the methodology and ignore.

    I don’t know whether there was in fraud in Maricopa County or anywhere else, and I don’t know what’s going on with court defiance, hidden activity logs, missing passwords, Internet connections, and deleted files.

    It could be crooked as hell down there in Phoenix, but this is not the way to conduct an inquiry – toss some (undisclosed) coin to your hyper-partisan ideological buddies, and give ’em a basketball stadium. Perhaps no-one who actually valued their reputation would take on the project.

    There you go SSL – there is some critical thinking.

        Meanwhile – does anyone think the Arizona event has (or will have) any credibility? That is the point of the discussion.

        And speaking of credibility – I wonder what the voters in the district of Marjorie Taylor Greene are thinking? There she was, bent down yelling banalities into the mail slot of AOC’s Congress Office.

      So, your complaint is that Trump partisans are making the inquiry to try to determine if Biden partisans stole the election in Arizona?

      I don’t see the issue.

      The whole point of the two-party system is that each party serves as a check on the other.

      So, on that basis, it is the most natural thing in the world for the Republicans to investigate the Democrats. Likewise, Democrats never show any hesitancy about investigating Republicans.

      It is in each party’s self-interest to hold the other party’s feet to the fire.

      Sorry, Tekapo, but what would be the alternative? To have Democrats investigate Democrats? No biases there to worry about, I suppose.

Most of the country is waking up to the scamdemic, if not illicit then demented bidet, dems attempt at HR1 passage. Then what? Don’t participate. Identify necessities, acquire Said items, plan in response to evolving threat, continue on with daily life. They change the rules, fine. Do not play.

        Yeah, that common ordinary flu (plus whatever other comorbidity the cat could drag in) was really a bitch this year. Not to mention the totally falsified statistics (lies, damn lies, and damn statistics!) that rubes like you subscribe to. The Big Lie (TM) has never been stronger and more virulent and the good sheeple have never been more trusting and naive. You really should get a hobby. Listening to the MSM News is bad for your mental health.

        I’m 63, in better than average health, and have taken absolutely NO precautions in the past year WHATSOEVER other than wearing a mask in the local grocery store due to mandate (it goes on and off at the door and not one step sooner or later) and I’ve never felt better. Don’t know ANYONE who’s been sick and the local hospital is the same sleepy little place it’s always been. Other than being subjected to naive uptight dipshits walking around virtue signaling in masks and the fact that I get to work from home now (BONUS! Thanks “CV19!”), I can easily forget that the current scamdemic even exists. Anyone who believes otherwise is a damn fool and fully deserves to be eliminated from the gene pool, which is the real test going on here . May the virus be with you idiot!

        • Wizard of the Saddle May 16, 2021 at 6:59 pm #

          Pretty much the same here for the past year. I’m pushing 60 and have done nothing more than you have. No signs of mass death hereabouts. Just a lot of people who feel rather foolish for wearing masks everywhere for a year. No one knows anyone who died of COVID where no other co-morbidities or advanced old age wasn’t already pushing that person into their grave already.

      • Slugoon May 15, 2021 at 7:57 am #

        Tek, I’m calling you out on 500,000. (I believe you quoted 588,000 a few blogs ago.) If that number is true then they will show as excess deaths. The annual death rate from all causes will have increased over the previous years’ average by that amount.

        If you can’t provide CDC figures, or whatever, to demonstrate that then I absolutely refuse to believe the total is anywhere near that number, not even close.

      • Slugoon May 15, 2021 at 9:18 am #

        After a brief search I’ve turned up the provisional CDC report for 2020 that puts Covid deaths at 375,000.
        https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/wr/mm7014e1.htm

        Not quite 588,000 but higher than I would have thought. Based on a population of 331,500,000 that is an increase in the mortality rate of 0.11%, which isn’t far off the UK’s 0.16% so it would seem about right.

        A look at the demographics tells a similar story, that anybody under 45 has little to fear, likewise anybody under 65 in good health. (But get those needles into the kiddies’ arms, Americans.)

        You can also see that the virus is racist, with Asians and Hispanics faring best and Blacks the worst, and sexist, with men faring much worse than women. No mention how trans or any of the other forty genders got on. I’m sure that will be the focus of a future EO.

          I didn’t think Asians were faring best? A disproportionate number of the doctors and nurses who died were Asians, I think.

        • Slugoon May 15, 2021 at 10:44 am #

          Slight correction, it was Asians, Hispanics and women that fared best in terms of overall deaths. For C19 specifically it was still lowest amongst Asians but actually highest amongst Hispanics.

          During 2020, COVID-19 was listed as the underlying or contributing cause of 377,883 deaths. COVID-19 was listed as the underlying cause of 345,323 deaths.

          This is of course taken from the CDC report. I haven’t looked into it for the UK in terms of ethnicity.

        • MaryV May 15, 2021 at 10:59 am #

          Have you factored in the thousands that were recorded as covid19 but were not? The CDC incentivized medical personnel to diagnose it and nurses have been reporting for months that this is going on.

          Also, the tests don’t work. Also, CDC stopped recording the flu.

          And why didn’t the counting start over in January? Why are we conflating 2 years together?

          I don’t know why anyone would imagine that we are anywhere close to knowing how many people died of this alleged virus.

          • Slugoon May 15, 2021 at 11:21 am #

            I haven’t Mary and like you I can only infer things from the report on the assumption that it’s been given in good faith. Believe me, if I could find a hole in the data that diminished the narrative I would.

            What I would say, in defence of the report, is that excess deaths do seem to have increased by a comparable number, which is an indication that something out of the ordinary happened in 2020. Okay, you could start to argue that 100,000 of those excess deaths were wrongly classified as Covid but then you’d have to explain what they should have been classified as and why there was an increase compared to previous years.

            I came across something months ago on the ONS site explaining how they work out the death stats (I believe, in the long run, ONS figures are more accurate than daily PHE totals, for example, because of the way they process the information. If I can find it again, I’ll let you have it. I bookmark zillions of pages of everything, which ends up being a nuisance, even with my tidy system!

            My view is that UK figures are more accurate because of the lack of financial incentive, also because of the general ethos of the medical profession.

            One of the commissioning editors previously at my work is married to a maths-whizz Cambridge graduate whose work is public health statistics. Not just her work, her life! They are normal people, church-going an’ everything! I don’t believe she’s being operated from behind by the bloke with the white cat.

            I do believe the nurse in Mary’s video, which was shocking. I don’t think that goes on here – no reason for it to.

    Glenn Greenwald:

    Liz Cheney Lied About Her Role in Spreading the Discredited CIA “Russian Bounty” Story

    As part of her ideological war to reclaim the GOP for neocons, the now-deposed House leader falsely denied her role in a tale designed to block withdrawal from Afghanistan.

    https://greenwald.substack.com/p/liz-cheney-lied-about-her-role-in

    • MaryV May 14, 2021 at 8:57 pm #

      “In an interview on Tuesday with Fox News’ Bret Baier, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) denied that she spread the discredited CIA “Russian bounty” story. That CIA tale, claiming Russia was paying Taliban fighters to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan, was cooked up by the CIA and then published by The New York Times on June 27 of last year, right as former President Trump announced his plans to withdraw troops from Afghanistan. The Times story, citing anonymous intelligence officials, was then continually invoked by pro-war Republicans and Democrats — led by Cheney — to justify their blocking of that troop withdrawal. The story was discredited when the U.S. intelligence community admitted last month that it had only “low to moderate confidence” that any of this even happened.

      When Baier asked Cheney about her role in spreading this debunked CIA story, Cheney blatantly lied to him, claiming “if you go back and look at what I said — every single thing I said: I said if those stories are true, we need to know why the President and Vice President were not briefed on them.” After Baier pressed her on the fact that she vested this story with credibility, Cheney insisted a second time that she never endorsed the claim but merely spoke conditionally, always using the “if these reports are true” formulation. Watch Cheney deny her role in spreading that story.”

    Do you remember Nov 22, 1963? I sure do. I was in class. What I do NOT remember is any teacher saying one word about it. Strange that but, no matter, memory is what it is. What I DO remember is hearing all about it on TV when I got home. And when I look back I am amazed at the sheer audacity of the thing.

    They didn’t do a poisoning, you know, a quiet rub-out in private, out of sight, they didn’t try to conceal the nature of the death, there wasn’t a morning announcement that the president tragically passed away in the night, in his bed, from natural causes, possibly from ailments he had long been contending with.

    No, what they did was to blow the president’s brains all over the road in broad daylight, in a wide public plaza, in the full view of thousands. And then when the purported assassin was arrested, they shot him in a police station no less, right in front of TV cameras. And then wouldn’t you know, the shooter that shot the alleged shooter, died history’s most convenient death until the mysterious demise of Jeffery Epstein.

    Why do I bring this up? BRAZENNESS, sheer fucking, balls-out BRAZENNESS, the same as we’re seeing in this laughably fraudulent 2020 – cough – “election” and the in-your-face-full-frontal obstruction in this joke of an audit.

    How do they get away with it? Many, many examples. The same way that Hill got away with monumental email malfeasance, the same way that “investigators” routinely manage to selectively not connect side-by-side dots in dealing with her and people like her, to see no arrows in patterns of events, to see nothing worth investigating in large transfers of money, the same as they managed to not see the obvious especially when it’s on film and you can see it with your own two eyes, and to intuit who dunnit, or who mighta dunnit, in the JFK coup d’etat.

    The message in all these? WE decide, not you, WE get the last word, you don’t, and most importantly, WE are above the law. It’s simple and clear-cut.

    As we’ve seen with the treatment of many people who had the temerity to blow whistles, or to get in the way, or speak out of turn, you will be slowly roasted by investigators until your financial juices are gone and you have no choice but to plead guilty to sham crimes to save your family from ruin. See what happened to Mike Flynn who had the effrontery to work for a president that wasn’t supposed to win, and who had attitudes out of synch with Swamp consensus? One guy I remember went right to the day before his trial on bogus nonsense was to start and then all charges against him were dropped. He stuck it out but by then he was destroyed, money-wise, career-wise, in every way.

    Prosecutorial malpractice? Investigative misconduct? Bah, this is the system of power and privilege. There is no system of justice for the wealthy and connected and powerful, but there IS a system for its obstruction. And there IS a system designed to ruin the innocent.

    In this last instance of electoral fraud, to the everlasting shame and discredit and the vast dishonor of the United States of America, they WILL get away with it.

    • MaryV May 14, 2021 at 9:03 pm #

      I hate to agree with you, but I do, 100%.

      There has been no justice for us against the people at the top since I’ve been alive. There was a slight appearance of it, here and there, to quell the masses. So many lower level scape goats get tossed to the wolves when the big wigs’ crimes are exposed. See: Scooter Libby.

      And let’s add, not only are some whistleblower’s lives and the lives of their families ruined, but so many of them have been assassinated, driven to suicide or suicided.

      Prosecutorial malpractice? Investigative misconduct? Bah, this is the system of power and privilege. There is no system of justice for the wealthy and connected and powerful, but there IS a system for its obstruction. And there IS a system designed to ruin the innocent.

      It seems to me there is a huge concentration of power in Washington, and yes, mostly of the players in there are rich, privileged, and if they know how to work the system, and make the right connections, they can avoid any accountability, survive and prosper.

      I expect there isn’t a country on earth where there isn’t a powerful elite, that has control of the economy, government, the courts, media, and bureaucracy. It is the scale of the thing that is breathtaking in the US. And there are 50 states below the federal level that replicate all of the above.

      However what you have not mentioned at all, is that there is fierce competition between a lot of these players – firstly to get in, and then to acquire a lot of money & influence, and of course to survive long-term.

      I don’t believe as some do – that there is some unified elite club or cabal – and they control the machinations of everything. Not at all – in so many cases when we analyse events over the last 50 years – the ultimate cause is fierce battling between opposing forces and vested interests, and of course individuals.

      I don’t believe JFK was killed by the Deep State – it seems much more likely it was The Mob – but if he were killed by elements of the Deep State, it was because of that fierce competition. Some believe he was despatched because he was not giving the MIC a big profitable war in Asia, others because he was cracking down on powerful illegal activities, and so on.

      In relation to Trump, I expect there were just as many forces against him as for him … and if there were some impregnable Deep State this would not have been the case. I just can’t buy all the theories – there is too much chaos, too much clusterfuckery, and too many selfish suspicious grifters around for that to happen.

      • Slugoon May 15, 2021 at 4:21 am #

        Tekapo, you are swaying me further from the idea that a Soros-type figure sits in a bunker somewhere in the Hills of California stroking his diabolic cat while orchestrating some master plan.

        It is likely that there are many such wannabe-masterminds on many sub-levels and ultimately there is too much chaos, too many variables, for anything to be done on a global scale.

        That’s not to say the future isn’t going 1984 but that it will just be chaos and disorder all the way down.

          I agree Slugger … I am just responding to the extremely nutty fruit loops on here (and unfortunately they’re not that rare) who believe there is a high level pyramid somewhere … and that is the control centre.

          My view is that there has never been – and isn’t now – any high level control layer.

          What we have are very competitive layers among the elite. I have never seen an example of those alleged elite turning out a good result. I’ve been a sentient human being roughly since JFK has his brains splattered all over the black limo,

          Every single clusterfuck and stupidity I’ve seen in the last 58 years tells me that absolutely nothing and no-one has been in control over that time.

          If there were a high-level controlling elite, looking at the history of the last 500 years would tell us they’re doing a very piss-poor job of being elites. LOL.

          • O.G. Hawkins May 15, 2021 at 12:07 pm #

            There ya go, Slugger. You can rest assured from a guy who doesn’t understand what a pyramid even is.

            If there were a high-level controlling elite, looking at the history of the last 500 years would tell us they’re doing a very piss-poor job of being elites. LOL.

            It is rare that I find myself in agreement with you, but I concur that I also do not believe in most of the grand conspiracy theories. What I do believe in is human nature. It is human nature to compete and struggle for things like, money, mates, entrance to the best colleges, career success, power, fame, etc.

            This competition goes on at every level of society.

            However, the competitors at the higher ends of society possess vastly greater resources and so their efforts tend to be much larger, better organized, better financed and are often more visible.

            This sort of thing sets everyone’s jaws to chattering. Inevitably it becomes something of a sport to try to discern which groups of powerful people are collaborating to elevate themselves at the expense of those who lack their resources and connections.

            So conspiracy theories will always be with us, Tekapo, and people from every part of the political spectrum are fond of theorizing. You find QAnon to be the world’s greatest hoot. So do I. But I also think Russia! Russia! Russia! Is an even bigger hoot. Do you?

    Most of the elected folks go to DC and become DeepStaters in their first term. Why? To get access to the party money that it takes to get re-elected.

    The Deep State. Think of the entire population of southern Maryland, the District and Northern Virginia wanting to preserve their job security. Then having the power through their jobs to do so.

    That is the Deep State. When elected folks get there, they join in. Then the Corporations and Wall Street join in through their lobbyists. The Feds send influence out through the judiciary and other federal agencies to infiltrate the states. They are also the Deep State.

    The Deep State is unified more than any other group in the US. Their job is to promote and preserve themselves. They transcend party, or any other organization. They are the 1%. They are also the taskmasters of the illicit trades, and probably the cartels, or vice versa?

    Great Tucker tonite anent masks and the CDC’s new guidelines. Many of the hard core are having a hard time with these. They like wearing masks or making you wear them. They like telling people what to do. The inconveniences are a small price to pay for the orgasmic pleasure of power.

    David Hogg (Herr Swine), gets to the nub of it: I’m not going to stop wearing a mask because I don’t want people to think I’m a conservative. Little danger of that, Dave. As Tucker said, he has the bitterness and neurosis of a much older woman. Ouch!

    Of course they are triangulating. We’re going to pay a high price for the CDC’s brief moment of semi-rationality. How do we know who the good people are who have been vaccinated and who deserve to show their face? We’re going to have to federally mandate vaccine passports.

          Are you claiming a vaccination against a coronavirus will affect immunity to an influenza virus, OG, LHB?

          Perhaps just getting one’s annual influenza jab will suffice to do the trick?

            Good question, GA.

            I am not sure of the Science of how their obviously evil kool-aid will result in a massive die-off.

            Mary has provided links to many experts who inform us that Faucci’s gene therapy completely alters one’s immunity at the cellular level. For example, guinea pigs jabbed with mRNA become spike protein factories for the rest of their lives.

            How this will … position the guinea pig for what they release from their Wuhan lab next is beyond my pay scale.

    “We are a country so far down the path to self-destruction, that the truth has been declared an enemy of the people.” – JHK

    “In war, truth is the first casualty.“ — Aeschylus

    Therefore, we are at war and, it would seem, have been for a very long time. Yet, one can easily surmise the changing ferocity of that war by the ever-increasing attacks on even the most apparent truths.

    • Night Owl May 15, 2021 at 4:20 am #

      I am not sure I would day we are at war. We are, however, under assault by the power structure.

      The people need to fight back before there is a war, and half of them can’t even recognize the enemy yet.

      Even on CFN most are still ranting about Biden and BLM. Exactly as the enemy wants you to.

      • O.G. Hawkins May 15, 2021 at 10:13 am #

          It is a mix of divide and conquer and sleight of hand.

          BLM does not matter. Biden does not matter. All that matters is the fact that they are ferrying us into a port from which we cannot leave. The virus hoax and the vaccines are the vehicle.

          Once we have people accepting that vaccine = freedom, it is over. And we are nearly there.

          Yet every week, people go on about meaningless shit. My wife just commented yesterday that her colleague’s biggest concern right now is starting a citizen action group to block off his street to residential traffic only.

          Is anyone home? Even among the writers and media personalities I still trust, CJ Hopkins is the only one who seems focused on the biggest threat the planet faces: enslavement.

            Reminds me of the “sensible” and “politically aware” kids in the 1960s … didn’t want to go to school, didn’t want to do their homework, “What’s the point, there’s a nuclear war coming, and the world is going to end!”. Sob.

            But it didn’t. I suggest people still go to work, pay the mortgage, be kind to your parents, plan for your kids 21st birthday. Have arguments over Republicans v Dems, Yankees v Mets, Giants v Jets.

            And yes – create a local action group to get your street zoned just for residents, if it’s important.

            There is no Big Reset, there is no Big Plan for Enslavement, globalisation will not survive peak oil, financial collapse, and isolationism and trade wars.

            The coronavirus escaped (a lab, an animal) and entered humanity, and in record time, safe, effective vaccines have been developed.

      Indeed. War is the default setting on the earthly plane. Thus peace is an untrustworthy mirage and a surreal fantasy here. And so your enemies encourage you to give peace a chance and disavow the very option of war. So much of war occurs in the psyche. And one is a casualty of war if they believe that there can be peace in this Age.

        • SoftStarLight May 15, 2021 at 1:32 pm #

          In a way I fear the answer as it seems a certain amount of doom will befall those who embrace these ideas. This is standard Americanized propaganda. A newish evangelism if you will. A sort of call to “join us, as we are all basically the same”, “we all bleed red”. At the amoeba level 🙂 this is actually a fact. They simply forgot or better, were intensely trained, to conveniently (or inconveniently) forget all the extra human layers that are actually involved in making an “us” in the first place. The amoebas will be surpassed and usurped by the multi-cellular organisms and will be extinguished or pushed to the marginal areas of existence.

          • Yohannon May 15, 2021 at 2:43 pm #

            Bingo! They did this to David Duke when he was in college. Cutting their fingers and then holding the bleeding appendage up. He would respond: Do that to a rat and it bleeds red too.

            At a human cultural level, we are so different from the Blacks. And even at the physical, the brain is different. This may have been the source – and ages of acculturation has only widened the gap.

          • sevensec May 17, 2021 at 12:45 am #

            Undoubtedly the goal is a kind of coalescence, as you describe: the destruction of the individual, the unique, the colorful, and all the history that goes with these.
            In its place: a new organism, pure instrumentality and standardization, divested of all the distinguishing qualities of the “amoebas” that made it up. “One single, vast, immane holding-company”, in the capitalist’s vision; more like a hive-like cyborg Collective, in the Great Resetter’s vision.
            Yet note: they are essentially *the same vision*.
            The hope behind the vision–and it is indeed a quasi-evangelical sort of hope–seems to be that this new organism will be inestimably more intricate, more beautiful, more efficient, and of course more “just” than any of the natural systems (and persons) out of which it was coalesced. You know: “Imagine there’s no countries…”
            Yet as you hinted, this project seems to have some suspicious requirements. How can we not notice that creating this ultimate beauty seems to demand the defilement, indeed negation, of all existing beauty? Or that creating the new perfected justice seems to require that we do the very opposite of what we all once considered just?
            Do we not begin to feel a nagging doubt that this glorious new Superorganism might, perversely enough, wind up being *lower* than the amoeba from which it was coalesced? That in this case, the evolution towards complexity leads *downwards* in consciousness, instead of *up*?
            We are taught all these slogans of universality, of interchangeability, not because they are true, but because they facilitate the process of coalescence; they provide a Beautiful Lie to drug and distract us from what is actually a process of remorseless, wholesale destruction and descent.

    Philip Zelikow was the man who headed up the 9/11 Commission. Guess what his new gig is? He is to head the Covid Commission planning group.

Yes, he ran that sham investigation as to how a Saudi elite boy, ex-CIA, made US Air Defences stand down in order to pulverize 3 skyscrapers with 2 airplanes 1 Tuesday.

      But, be careful, tulls, beantownbill. and Tekapo have decreed that you are not to speak of the Tuesday that irrevocably changed Western Civilization on this forum of Free Speech. They do not like The Truth and they hide from it.

      What a farce!

      I will never forget Cokie Roberts on the Brinkmeister after Oliver Stone released JFK. She stated that the Warren Commission’s findings were correct and that she knew it for a fact. I watched intently awaiting her explanation of how she could possibly know such a thing.

      Cokie Roberts says (paraphrased), “I know that the Warren Commission’s findings were correct and accurate because my Dad was on the Warren Commission!”

        I have been wondering, “Where is the House of Bush?”

        US abondoning their poppy fields after guarding them to destroy millions of herion addicts and their loved ones. wtf? Someone said that private contractors would guard their opium fields now but I believe that the House of Bush knows that the herion profits, like many things, have no future.

        Then I hear that the Kuwati incubator PR firm from 1991 is now duping the hesitant into taking their kool-aid.

            Who denies slavery? What a stupid accusation. Slavery happened…….to lots of races, cultures and nationalities. History records this well.

            About the only business that is older is prostitution.

            What offends white Americans who actually know a little history is the silly notion that African negroes are the only people in the world who have had a turn at being the property of other people.

            The real denial is on the part of African-Americans who embrace the viewpoint that they, and they alone, are the only race of people ever to have been enslaved in the whole history of mankind.

        Rock and Roll played a big role in the transformation downwards. How do you reconcile your passionate love for it with what you know? It is difficult, is it not? I’ve met some guys who are struggling with this – as do I.

        • O.G. Hawkins May 15, 2021 at 1:34 pm #

          Indeed, Yoho. It is a very difficult.

          First off, I give the Devil his due. He is very effective with what he does. The music of 1965-1985 is some of the most amazing art in mankind’s history.

          Secondly, I can remove myself and my soul from examining God v Satan. Then, when I consider my soul in that analyzed environment, I see my own humanity. Each of us has a finger-print mix of The Seven Deadly Sins. I most definitely have mine while being the … beneficiary of several others’ unique brew.

          Further, I believe that God had every intention that I know evil. It surely has transpired that way.

          I was so looking forward to being a teenager when I was 5 (1970) and beautiful people danced and picked flowers and put the crooked old guys in their place for our future of Love & Peace.

          Then, at the time I started high school, they released AC/DC’s Back in Black and the Devil started appearing eveywhere. Album covers and T-shirts. Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Sab, Ozzy, Dio et al.

          I was somewhat ostracized with my Beatles & Doors in the early 1980s but thought that I was choosing Good over Evil. Of course, all superstars did what they were told and I merely fell into a different trap. They shot John Lennon on account of him being uncontrollable.

          I have seen the Greed of Wall Street first-hand. Worked with it for over 2 decades. I have seen Hedonistic Lust & Gluttony. I have witnessed and participated in far more evil than I care to dwell upon.

          I repent my sins. I pray for His forgiveness. I thank Him for taking His wayward son back and I try my Best while still suffering the fallibility of a human (i.e. sinner).

          I still enjoy Eagles’ Hotel California. Every time. It is sadly tattooed on my soul. God knows that and Rock n Roll is a cultural touchstone that can be used for Good.

          • tully May 15, 2021 at 2:01 pm #

            Also Rumours, which beat out Hotel alifornia for album of the year. The two combined were a good chunk of the soundtrack of the late seventies.

          • SoftStarLight May 15, 2021 at 2:02 pm #

            It’s really all anyone of us can do. I mean IMO based on everything I have understood. We naturally have a sinful nature that isn’t really going away. And that’s why we must have that personal relationship with Him. The rarest, true believers get closest to God when they die to themselves and to the world. Most cannot do that. But it doesn’t make it any less noble of a goal.

          Same.

          Figuring out how they used it to create the mass hysteria, and the nostalgia, etc. has been mind-blowing.

          Joan Baez is getting shit on FaceBook for posting a portrait of St. Greta she painted. This is who these people really are.

          And of course McGowan’s Laurel Canyon series was an eye-opener. Then I looked into the Tavistock-created Beatles.

          That answered my questions on how could 4 ignorant young teens from Liverpool have so many hit songs by their early 20’s? Impossible. Unless you have a whole team behind you.

          Really hard to resolve it having grown up with and loved rock ‘n’ roll. However, I also grew up with and loved classical, jazz, and that’s what I play (on piano) so I am fine without the R&R, too.

          • Yohannon May 15, 2021 at 10:06 pm #

            Not Greta Thunberg I take it. Yes, the cognitive dissonance is quite literally mind blowing. But as Og said, there was a lot of good music. They used the good to promote evil – but the music was still good in itself.

            From a spiritual pov, Classical may be higher, and doesn’t stimulate the lower chakras so blatantly. But of course they need some stimulation. Traditionally that came from Folk music in the European tradition.

          • Wizard of the Saddle May 16, 2021 at 7:46 pm #

            Well, I listened to and loved many of the artists mentioned. Of course, my personal favorite band is Lynyrd Skynyrd. Nothing makes one want to mash down on the accelerator of an old muscle car flying down the highway like listening to “Free Bird.”

            I was just watching an old concert video of Skynyrd last Friday evening. They were playing before a crowd of what looked like 100,000 in a stadium in Oakland, California around 1976 or so. Enormous Confederate battle flag erected behind the band as they played. More battle flags seen waving out in the audience of young, mostly white, California teens and college aged kids.

            Lordy…..

            Imagine what will happen to some of those folks, who are all now my age or older, when the Wokester doxxing squads gets around to trying to ID every kid at that concert so they can track him or her down today and punish them for their “racism” and “white privilege” on display in the [GASP!] sainted Bay Area of Cali nearly half a century ago.

    “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

    US CongressCritters must swear an oath to a foreign country and not a single Frick nor a solitary Frack has a syllable to say about that?

    “Well that’s strange.”
    – Kosmo Kramer

    Nice clothes, Emperor!

      Why would they care about that? They don’t even care about their own enslavement.

        I Hope that some will break through their delusions built to protect their earlier misconceptions as they closed their minds.

        They decided a long time ago that it is cuckoo to believe that our planet is ran by Satanists. Then they closed their minds.

        I Hold such feet to the fire as they become aware that they were Wrong.

        The Truth is unstoppable. We all know that.

      Do you have the wording of the Oath?

      • O.G. Hawkins May 15, 2021 at 12:49 pm #

        I do not, Yoho. Cynthia McKinnon made a big stink about it a long time ago. A couple of others. Paul Wellstone was opposed to ADL’s stranglehold of Washington.

          I’ve heard of it, but our opponents will say if you can’t produce it, how do you know it exists?

          • GreenAlba May 15, 2021 at 1:32 pm #

            I’ve looked and can’t find it. Found one thing to say if it existed it would be unconstitutional. And another saying there was an understanding about US-Israeli co-operation, but no-one had to sign anything. Also mentioned, though, that anyone openly not supporting co-operation would find it difficult to be elected.

            So maybe it’s a myth. Or one of those things we’re not allowed to mention. You know, con… con … No, I just can’t.

            See my article “below”. Many things exist but can’t be proven, Alba. Those who know, know. They know because it is told to them by those who know – those higher up the Pyramid.

            Here is one example of such a thing Alba. Different, and yet let me know if you feel such a thing at a higher level within government is doubtful. And you know as well as the next one that politicians keep secrets. Until they can’t. So actually, yes you can.

            Thanks, SSL. That’s pretty bad.
