The Arrest of Robespierre, The Night of the 9th to 10th Thermidor, Year Two, 27th July 1794

     What’s most amazing about the fiasco that was the French Revolution is that it happened at exactly the same time that the United States successfully organized themselves into an orderly and effective government following the American Revolution. George Washington was elected and sworn-in by April of 1789, with the backing of an exemplary constitution assembled by the best minds in the land. The Bastille fell in July that same year. France then fell into a years’ long orgy of beheading and chaos that went nowhere until 1799 when an artillery officer named Bonaparte put an end to it by sheer force of personality.

     Of course, France had assisted America in concluding our revolt against King George — surely you remember the Marquis de Lafayette from your high school history class (or has he been replaced by George Floyd?). There were plenty of Frenchmen still on the American scene during the years following the British surrender at Yorktown in the fall of 1781. Some of them must have kept tabs on the Constitutional Convention, May to September, 1787, out of which came our blueprint for managing national affairs, and not a few of these Frenchmen were active in their own revolution which kicked off two years later.

      By the way, Thomas Jefferson was in Paris from 1784 until autumn of 1789, months after the Bastille fell. He succeeded Ben Franklin as minister there to negotiate trade agreements (Ben went to London as ambassador). John Adams was also on-the-scene in Paris as our ambassador there when Jefferson arrived. These Americans met daily and chatted endlessly with France’s political players. The American Articles of Confederation were in effect then, to be replaced by the improved US Constitution in 1787. The people of France, including the various elites involved in public life, royal, haut bourgeoise, lawyers and generals, might have taken a lesson from the American experience of how to successfully come out of a political tribulation. Alas, they simply could not get their shit together.

     Rewind a little to 1793 in Paris, the revolution in full swing: King Louis XVI went to the guillotine in January. The National Convention had replaced the National Assembly as the furnace of political action. The radical Jacobin faction, led by Robespierre and Saint-Just, coalesced into a power-seizing majority there. They took their name from a political club founded by anti-royalists, but their platform became increasingly extreme as the revolution lurched toward pandemonium.

     During their year in power, the Jacobins turned the life of the nation upside down in their zealous quest to create a perfectly equitable society. They abolished the church (and replaced it with their own “cult of the supreme being”). They changed the week from seven days to ten days, they changed the names of all the months of the calendar. (1792 was denoted “the Year One.”) They put in price and wage controls while churning out money (paper assignats) which triggered (voila) monetary inflation! They confiscated grain from farmers all over the country. They condemned thousands (estimate: 20,000 to 40,000) of political enemies to the guillotine in their “Reign of Terror.” In short, the Jacobins made a bloody mess of things and pissed-off a lot of their countrymen.

      By the summer of 1794 (in their renamed month of Thermidor), everybody else finally had enough of the Jacobin nightmare. On July 27, Robespierre was at the rostrum once again denouncing his enemies and crying for blood when the out-group members present started throwing food at him and shouting him down. That was the magic moment when everything flipped — the shock of recognition that the Jacobins had lost power. Just like that! The chamber fell into a melee, a lot of shoving and shouting. . . Robespierre and his cronies were chased across town to the city hall (Hôtel de Ville) and barricaded themselves inside. The mob broke through and arrested them. Somewhere in the confusion a policeman shot Robespierre in the face, shattering his jaw (no more speeches for you!). . . and the very next day, Robespierre, Saint-Just, and twenty of their associates had their appointment with “the national razor.”

     This event became known as the Thermidorian Reaction. The insane Jacobin program of terror and social derangement was swiftly abolished. Nothing like it was seen again until the Bolsheviks, the Maoists and the Khmer Rouge came along in the 20th century, and now, in our time, The Party of Chaos as led by “Joe Biden” (or whoever and whatever is behind him), with their open border, their lust for another world war, their drive for censorship, their sadistic lawfare, their race and sex hustles, their compulsive lying, and their sick destruction of every norm and boundary in daily life.

     America is headed for its own Thermidorian Reaction. It’ll end up being called something else, of course, because it is a different time, place, and set of circumstances. But it feels close, doesn’t it? Everybody I know or correspond with mentions this feeling that something is going to blow in our country, and pretty soon. The air is alive with it, just as the air is alive with portents of spring. Are you waiting for it?

    I’m keeping a running list of events that got us to this place. If you have suggestions/things I’ve missed, let me know.

    Deep State Oracle’s Running List of Lies of the Political Class

    • Beryl of Oyl February 26, 2024 at 9:57 am #

      That’s a lot of work there.

    • cowbell81 February 26, 2024 at 10:13 am #

      Great list. Do you have anything in there about China and their ties to America? I am thinking of China spies and the balloons they sent our way.

      • abbybwood February 26, 2024 at 3:43 pm #

        Not to mention the tightly coordinated influx of illegal aliens from China now numbering in the thousands.

        What’s this all about??

    • cowbell81 February 26, 2024 at 10:16 am #

      Inflation, White Nationalism, and Replacement Theory are all other things they are most certainly lying to us about.

    • bobfitz03 February 26, 2024 at 11:00 am #

      Excellent list. Basically outlines the average news cycle for any given week in our Deceiver’s Paradise.

      One category worth considering – extraterrestrial disclosure. The Right People lied so much about UFOs, they had to make up a new name, Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), to seed the feed and make hay with the narrative again.

    • Irish February 26, 2024 at 2:04 pm #

      Very impressive!

    • Hardrock February 26, 2024 at 5:15 pm #

      Thanks to those who viewed the list and especially those who made suggestions.

      I created this list because I felt that those who don’t follow politics closely (and especially those who lean left) do not understand the incredible amount of “disinformation” that has already been disproven. WE read about this stuff weekly here on CFN….others NEVER see it. Many of the items on the list are getting revised frequently when new information becomes available.

      With the coming election on the horizon, I wanted a way to share what many of us consider to be the truth with those on the other side who have enough of an open mind to look at facts and base their vote on reason and not on some emotional appeal they see on social media.

    Utopians always create Hell on earth.

    • MiTurn February 26, 2024 at 1:08 pm #

      Because, as many of us might remember from high school English, Utopia means “no place.”

      Utopias are always forced from the top, down.

    • The Man They Call Zazelle February 26, 2024 at 10:47 pm #

      Mom, The Dictator

      The only feasible ‘utopia’ from the ‘top’, ‘down’ (so to speak) is the one prescribed by Mom Nature and the one we as a species left some time ago from our tribal anarchic cradles and into our current State monocultures/Matrixes/Zoos/Panopticon Penitentiaries/Plato’s Caves/Truman Shows.

      Any other top-down society brainwashed as a ‘utopia’ will inevitably become a dystopia if the checks and balances of Mom Nature go unheeded.

      Mom Nature is the only dictator we need to concern ourselves with.

      Jarek’s Utopia (In-Progress)

      “Whites who live with us will have to abide by our Laws and Customs or leave.” ~ Vlad Krandz (AKA, Jarek, etc.) March 25, 2012 at 2:03 am, Kunstler.com/Clusterfuck Nation

      • Jarek February 27, 2024 at 12:19 pm #

        How is that controversial? In your anarchist town, can people piss or wash their clothes in the water supply? Or drive on either side of the road they fancy? No laws or even mutual agreements?

        • The Man They Call Zazelle February 27, 2024 at 10:09 pm #

          Sensible societies may piss and wash their clothes from the water supply whereas less sensible societies will wash their clothes and piss in it.

          I am being metaphoric here, too, insofar as those former societies may last a bit longer, with part of the point being who will determine who makes and follows its laws and who doesn’t…

          And will a society that is more anarchic– therefore, perhaps making more sense– be the one that lasts longer.

        • The Man They Call Zazelle February 27, 2024 at 10:14 pm #

          IOW perhaps, and to be more direct, is your hypothetical society more or less likely to soil its own nest by its own rules?

        • The Man They Call Zazelle February 27, 2024 at 10:18 pm #

          I appreciate the water supply analogy, BTW, it seems to have worked well/conveniently for my argument.

        • Jarek February 28, 2024 at 12:46 pm #

          Exactly. You can’t just do what you want. There are rules, both of Nature and of Man. You can’t play badminton on a football field while a game is going on. People will get hurt.

          And rabbits can’t join coytote packs. They’ll get dead and ate.

          • The Man They Call Zazelle February 28, 2024 at 5:22 pm #

            Follow Dictator, Mom Nature’s rules and you can’t go wrong, unless she decides to throw an asteroid your way; follow the mortal lower dictators’ and see how long your societies last.

            To permaculturists, by the way, it’s in large part about permanent culture, rather than daisy-chains of declines and collapses over time because some elite set of clowns decided things for the rest of us to follow by hook or crook.

  3. Beryl of Oyl February 26, 2024 at 9:51 am #

    Waiting? Maybe in the biblical sense.

  4. jgalt February 26, 2024 at 9:54 am #

    With 10 million, and growing, illegal invaders here, and their home countries now refusing to take them back, we may look more like the French Revolution than we care to. Already the invaders are taking over cities and calling for more welfare and booty from our citizens. The murders so far are few, but the crimes are many from organized gangs of illegals, especially from Venezuela, who will not allow any to be sent back. The Biden regime will not protect us from what they have deliberately caused, rather, they will likely prosecute us for self-defense should it become necessary, which is very likely. My reply, as always is, better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6, unless you are tried in D hellholes like NY and DC. Lock and load to stay safe!

    • TruthSeeker1986 February 26, 2024 at 10:12 am #

      @Jgalt
      They can make them take them back, that’s not hard to fucking do. They sent the fuckers over here, they can take them back. They make the military force them to. Then they would have no choice.

      • Beryl of Oyl February 26, 2024 at 10:23 am #

        Push them all over the border into Mexico. What happens next is Mexico’s problem.

        • Cankerpuss February 26, 2024 at 10:57 am #

          And then put our military, all of it, along the entire expanse of the southern border. One of those fuckers puts a foot in the Rio Grand or steps across the border they are shot dead. That’s what our military should be doing.

          • Cavepainter February 26, 2024 at 11:19 am #

            Nope, instead aggressive military action (retaliation) against the cartels and its enablers within the Mexican government. It’s a war against us but so far not acknowledged as so by the traitors within the belt-way. Hang’um!

          Problem is not really with the immigants, though, but with the church/religion as The State and its zealous clergy, missionairies and disciples.

      • cbeard February 26, 2024 at 11:22 am #

        It would make more sense to send them all back to Mexico. The Mexicans/cartels refuse to enforce their southern border. They brought them here, let Mexico suffer the consequences of their own open border.

    • Cankerpuss February 26, 2024 at 11:00 am #

      Fact is, jgalt, there are too damned many of them to remove. How do you remove 20 millions of people? It’s impossible.

      They are hear to stay.

      We need to consider ways to get these people to patriate themselves as Americans. Eliminate all welfare benefits and all the perks, right to work, etc until they have learned English, renounced previous citizenships and sworn allegiance to America.

      Yeah, I am dreaming. Twill never happen.

      • Mac February 26, 2024 at 11:26 am #

        Cank- You remove them by creating the conditions that make it impossible to live here. Then they walk home.

      • cbeard February 26, 2024 at 11:27 am #

        That is exactly how to be rid of them, that is by not giving them anything. No welfare, no transportation, no phones, no housing,nothing. Make their life a living hell so that they want to leave our country. They need to get their own countries/houses in order, and Americans need to do the same.

            Are you serious or trolling? Then again maybe you aren’t… This reminds me of the story of that trans or whatever went around raping girls at a school, then got transported to a different school and repeated the same offense. I tell you Americans truly do take a lot of shit in this country. A LOT.

        • C.O.Jones February 26, 2024 at 12:10 pm #

          It used to be illegal to hire an illegal. Maybe it still is and nobody’s enforcing that law. Now we are issuing phones and pre-paid debit cards with astronomical limits to any criminal who can make it to the border. So many border town mayors and sheriffs are on the cartel payroll…

          Bobby Kennedy is right about the need to close our military bases in foreign countries and bring the troops home to guard our country. That would be a huge step toward balancing our national budget. RFK JR does not have the testicular fortitude to deport all the tens of millions of aliens from every country let in by the ‘merkin Jacobins but imagine if he did…US active duty troops stationed on the southern and northern borders. The US declares Mexican land within 100 miles of our southern border to be a protectorate and backs up the declaration with active duty – not national guard – troops. Mexicans are hired to cultivate the land within that 100 mile zone and produce…produce! Those Mexicans who want to immigrate to the US must work productively in those fields for a period of time and earn the right to a job interview in the US. If they are hired, they get in.

          The cartels would be out of business. The flow of fentanyl would cease. We would have more fresh food and no illegals on our welfare or voter rolls.

          Do I have a vivid imagination or what?

          • Cankerpuss February 26, 2024 at 12:39 pm #

            Yes, your imagination is as vivid as mine. Ironically, most of our national problems really aren’t that complicated to solve if our leadership and the people actually wanted to solve the problems.

            Want to stop immigration? See comments above:

            Want to stop inflation? Stop printing money.

            Want to stop the cartels? Stop buying their drugs.

            Want to fix elections? Go back to paper ballots and in person voting.

            The solutions aren’t difficult. They may be harsh but the lessons will be learned quickly.

            We have a lack of will to resolve the problems because the PTB profit too immensely from the filth.

          • Jarek February 26, 2024 at 2:05 pm #

            Love of money is the root of all evil.

            Christ

            The theory and practice of this evil love is called Capitalism. It turned our culture into a death culture which we then exported throughout the world. The National Socialists tried to protect themselves and were destroyed for doing so. We fought for our Slave Masters instead of for those who could have helped free us.

          • ThorsHammer February 26, 2024 at 8:55 pm #

            C.O.
            Your imagination is vivid because it lacks a concept of political power. The “border crisis” is not accidental. It is the product of a group of people who’s goal is to destroy the remaining cultural entity that used to be called the United States of America.

            The solution to the border crisis is relatively simple. (as is the fentanyl crisis and the homeless crisis) The USA has the Means. What is lacking is the Will and the Power in the hands of the People.

            The immigration Flood has two main streams. For most “migrants” it represents a normal human desire to escape an impossible future for them and their family, no matter the risk. Once the gates to the border were understood to be thrown wide open the psychology of the Flood built and built, overwhelming any reasonable expectation of a future.

            The second stream is more diabolical. Young military trained men— most from China, but also from conflict areas in the Middle East and probably Ukraine utilize planned transit networks and “hotels” along the way to arrive at the US border and walk across at their leisure. Since they disappear into the USA upon arrival, it is logical to assume that they are intended as sleeper cells designed to be deployed at the most opportune time.

            What might be their mission? A number of years ago I was driving out to hike the Washington North Cascades. I stopped to eat lunch at a viewpoint overlooking Grand Coulee Dam. Leading from the largest hydroelectric plant in the USA was a maze of power lines converging upon a transformer array. Guarded by a single chain link fence with no guard on duty. At the farm town 15 miles distant one could purchase enough fertilizer to build a bomb that would destroy the entire electrical grid for the Pacific Northwest. The transformers are all custom built using parts from Europe and China. The turn around time for replacement is measured in months if not years. A dozen coordinated attacks on similar transformer stations around the country would paralyze the electrical system of North America and turn the entire continent into a world made by hand.

            Best not to think about it—-. The Covid Pandemic of Fear was good training for that mind set.

        • SpeedyBB February 26, 2024 at 3:59 pm #

          I found it amusing that a pack of Iraqi freeloaders up and decided that, well, life in prosperous Finland was not quite as appealing as advertised by the snakeheads who they paid to shuttle them there. Darkness, intense cold, drippy days for much of the year, a stolid, tough population, a near-impossible language for a foreigner to master (also useless anywhere else) and a generally unwelcome attitude conspired to make them change their minds. “Hell, even Iraq could not be any worse than this.”

          Too bad the same cannot be said about pleasant, comfy France, Italy and Spain. At least where the invaders like to cluster.

          • Soul Forensics February 26, 2024 at 5:53 pm #

            Yes, and Finland is combating Russia sending their unwanted scum to border crossings into Finland by sending security/troops to those borders and blocking passage.

            Secure borders. What a concept!

          • TruthSeeker1986 February 26, 2024 at 6:07 pm #

            @SpeedyBB

            That’s because France, Italy, and Spain are all liberal as hell. I use to think Italy was at least tougher than this because of their past history with the Italian Mob. I was wrong.

          • The Man They Call Zazelle February 27, 2024 at 10:24 pm #

            America has a similarly benign climate to your France, Italy and Spain, too, without the problems associated with that particular landmass, and an extremely friendly government.

            It’s a party-like atmosphere.

            Woo! Ya!

      • TruthSeeker1986 February 26, 2024 at 12:21 pm #

        @Cankerpuss

        Fuck all that get them to participate in society shit…. Even legal immigration is bad on a massive scale. If it was possible for that many of them to flood into the U.S. like that it’s possible to make them all leave. The fact is there is going to be a lot of civil strife soon.

        • Cankerpuss February 26, 2024 at 12:40 pm #

          I don’t disagree.

      • socialisthater February 26, 2024 at 12:36 pm #

        Cankerpuss,

        Here’s how you remove 20 millions illegal aliens–or, more accurately, force them to deport themselves:

        By Legislative and Executive action, make the illegal aliens ineligible for any taxpayer-supported service, make it illegal–with hefty jail time and monetary fines–for anyone (including government employees or officials) to aid, abet, employ, house, or provide sanctuary to an illegal alien.

        Illegal aliens are just like cockroaches. The first step to getting rid of them is to deny them entry in the first place, then for those already here, deny them shelter, deny them food to eat, and deny them any way to live off of the resources of others. Do that, and most of them will leave on their own initiative. Then physically deport the small minority that won’t leave on their own. The illegals would be gone in a few months.

        • Cankerpuss February 26, 2024 at 12:41 pm #

          So right you are but you are thinking with common sense. This doesn’t exist in anymore in American government and most of the people it governs.

          Greetings,

          I agree. It wouldn’t be that hard. If your business hires an illegal and it is discovered, you forfeit it. If you are a homeowner and you knowingly hire an illegal then you lose your home.

          The problem solves itself in a manner of months.

          • RocketDoc February 28, 2024 at 10:22 pm #

            Several years ago I requested 3 quotes to roof my house. Two local companies for $12,000 and one with a Puerto Rican salesman, for $9,200. I asked the salesman if all the workers were legal and if he could prove it. He replied all our workers have legal papers. I asked again, I realize they have identification but do they have green cards to work in the US? He gave me a number to call who said all of their employees were legal. When they showed up to work, 8 Mexicans got out of a White Suburban from Brownsville Texas, did a good job, and were gone without a trace in one day. Extirpating illegal work is doable but not easy. And as for hiring, It is easy to tell illegal workers in an interview. And a $10,000 fine would make it unlikely that it ever happened.

        • geomo February 26, 2024 at 2:04 pm #

          Sounds reasonable…to someone who has never run a small business and had to hire people. They AlLL have ID including SSN that seems legit. How is the small business person supposed to know if it’s not?

          Seems like a situation ripe for setting up small businesses to be victimized by the corporate state. How so?

          Big business can afford all the legal protection they need in the event of such a finding. Small business, not so much (I have been a small business owner for 22+ years, and I avoid corporate clients because they have legal leverage that I do not). A corporate cartel could plant illegals in the ranks of small businesses it want’s to eliminate, then call the cops. Not hard to imagine.

          • NickelthroweR February 26, 2024 at 5:50 pm #

            I call BS. I’ve been a business owner longer than you and it isn’t that hard to figure out who is here legally.

            Let’s break down your post, shall we?

            Illiteracy

            Illiteracy means when a person cannot read and write and does not have any knowledge about the subject.

            Whoops the legion of dunce is once again flat out WRONG.
            Proving this know it all know nothing does not even know the meaning of someone who is illiterate.

            As far as paying $30 for a head of lettuce?
            What to pay your worthless ass to pick lettuce?
            It’s not an hourly rate they pay vegetable and fruit pickers they pay them by the box the faster they work the more they get paid.
            It won’t cause the price to go up or down.

            @ Mike Sherman:

            Who the heck do you think did the farm work and mowed the lawns before we were flooded with illegal immigrants? High school boys spent their late summer days bucking hay, and they did farm work for the rest of the summer.

            As of right now, I know two large market-gardeners in my area. They are white women. They grow massive amounts of produce: Each has two or three high tunnels and field crops to the horizon. Both have some hired help (who are white people). Both have stores. One is an “honor store,” where there is no one watching the store. (They had to put in security cameras because of some theft.) The other is a regular store with paid (white) employees.

            Now that I think of it, there is a third market-gardener in the area. He is a white man who has a store where he sells his own produce and also home-cooked carry-out food–which is some pretty impressive cooking. You have to order ahead to pick up on your way home.

            What do you find so undesirable about outdoor work or physically demanding work? Is it your view that the perfect state of human life is to sit motionless, indoors, in a chair? Seriously? You aspire to be inert? Why not just aspire to be dead, if you’d rather not move around?

          • Anthea February 27, 2024 at 1:45 am #

            @ Mike Sherman:

            As for the $30 lettuce, the growers I mentioned (all of them white, with all-white employees) grow and sell lettuce and lots of other produce. They do not charge $30 for a head of lettuce. Their prices for all their produce is competitive with grocery stores.

            In addition, many farmers’ market vendors buy produce from the Amish, at the produce auction in Windsor, Missouri. Farmers’ market rules usually allow vendors to sell purchased produce if it is grown within 100 miles of the market’s location.

            At the Amish produce auctions, you can buy vegetables of all kinds by the box full. The auctions are run by the Amish, and the produce is grown by the Amish. And guess what? The Amish are white people. And I don’t think they hire any farm labor at all outside their own community.

      • Jarek February 26, 2024 at 12:56 pm #

        Low estimate. Very low in my book. Bet it’s closer to 40 million.

        And what do you do about the legal immigrants brought in by laws contrary to natural law – and thus illegal in the deeper sense?

      • cbeard February 26, 2024 at 3:27 pm #

        It may be difficult to deport them, but it is in no way impossible. It could be done with difficulty and a lot of bloodshed. Better their bloodshed now than American Blood later. Damn the naysayers. They were imported therefore they can be deported. Out just like they came in. Make life so uncomfortable here that they gladly leave, even running away screaming to get away.

      • jgalt February 26, 2024 at 5:18 pm #

        These mostly military aged men have been brought here for very evil purposes, after the cartels bribed the Biden mafia with many millions. How else can this ongoing catastrophe be explained, since otherwise it make absolutely no sense. These invaders will be joined by antifa and blm when set loose on the American public by Biden and the Demoncraps, just as antifa and blm were set loose in 2020. With F-16’s being sent Ukraine to fly into Russia and drop bombs on their cities this summer, while the invaders are sent out into the streets and communities, there will be a demand to cancel or postpone the elections. China/cartel Joe cannot win, and NATO is very fearful of a Trump election, as he has plainly stated that he will only support them if they are paid up for their own defense. I repeat my oft-stated advice, lock and load, with training, to stay safe.

      It was 11 million way before Biden, and Biden’s added at least 6 million more. By now, it’s over 20 million, and I’ve seen estimates of close to 30 million.

        Was it successful? I think Jim’s write up asserts that the ultimate conclusion was successful because the political class ate themselves. The death, chaos, terror, fear, and destruction that ensued for a decade cannot be decried as success.

          I mean that it was a success in a sense that the people who caused the shit finally got their asses handed to them. I hate extreme violence but I really wouldn’t care if Obama was walking out to play with one of his little girls and out of nowhere he gets impaled in the throat by some maniac he created himself.

    • chopper February 26, 2024 at 10:27 am #

      This will be a revolution led by men in the street not political people. The political class had their opportunity to oppose this shit storm of abuse but they sat by and did nothing. Now we have no confidence in their leadership or allegiance.

      Revolutions are dangerous for government people because the scope and size of the target is painted with a very wide brush.

      within the target outline will be many who will say they did nothing to deserve punishment, but they will be swept up in the rush to get the most guilty of the guilty. Doctors will be remembered for pushing the shot. They will not be able to claim they were not aware of the facts.

        When it happens, as it did in France, the political class will be the ones swinging from lampposts.

        The reason America’s revolution was successful was because they had wealthy statesmen leading them.

        We don’t have that. There are no leaders in American right now. There are no statesmen. Nobody trusts anyone or anything. A revolution in this Country scares the holly shintoo out of me. It will be France only hundreds of times more violent.

        And they still have allies because other nations are low IQ, too stupid to cut the U.S. off. When they were sanctioning Russia all these other dick riding countries followed the U.S. and joined them. Yet no one is ballsey enough to sanction the U.S. except for Russia, China, and North Korea.

        • Paula D February 26, 2024 at 3:51 pm #

          I don’t think that any of those three countries are sanctioning the US, actually. They don’t have the power.

          The US has the power, because the petrodollar in necessary for the entire world, and they control SWIFT.
          Also, as you point out, they have vassals and colonies they control.

          But the US is losing that power because they got greedy and started going too far.
          Plus, they started outright stealing of sovereign funds.

          The rest of the world is backing away, trying to develop trading systems that don’t rely on the petrodollar or SWIFT, without incurring the wrath of the neocons. But the US controls the dominant media, the internet, and the UN.
          It’s not easy to escape.
          Even Russia is still selling the US oil and uranium, which I find despicable, while Russians are dying at the hands of the US. China still sells the US all kinds of goods, even though the US is busily arming Taiwan to attack China.

          It is mind boggling.

    Perhaps we will have an inauguration. Perhaps the dollar will still be a functioning currency. Perhaps travel will be permitted without submitting to the latest untested vaccine. Perhaps we won’t need to worry about a mob looting our home while we are away.

        @ TruthSeeker:

        The first thing a seceding state would do is to take over all US military installations within the state. E.g., if Missouri were to secede, it should/must take over Whiteman AFB. I understand that the personnel at military bases are not allowed to be armed, which is a plus. Besides that, I know of a case where one of my former neighbors was busted with weapons stolen from Whiteman, so it sound like their stuff is for sale.

        A seceding state should/must also take over all militarized police departments and their armories. (I think most of these would be in the control of the cities.)

            Yes, the Vietnamese prevailed…. in the end.

            The Vietnamese were tenacious fighters. They were organized. And their leadership was brutally relentless (in the sense that they were determined to achieve their objectives AT ANY COST in men lost). And they were fighting for THEIR country.

            These intangibles make a big difference.

            And one should not overlook that the Vietnamese took MANY casualties. Multiple times more than the US. And their country was physically devastated by the war.

            If one were so disposed, one could research the location of the visualization window on a given model of tank. That can readily be pierced by a 50BMG cal and maybe a 300WinMag (or even a very hot 308) at 100-200 yards. I’ve heard vets from Russia (via an MD resident xchange program) talk about tanks getting hit there with an old Afgan bold action Brit303 and everyone inside getting chopped to pieces. Think about the physics of the situation; after entry, the bullet slows down and bounces from one side to another easily piercing meat sitting inside. The Russians apparently feared it more than any other issue while there. Despite their tanks, they lost the Afgan war, as did the US Corporation. (Also the Viet Cong regularly disabled US tanks with track bombs and waiting out the GIs inside). So much for tanks. Techno triumphalism, a choice JHK term, definitely applies to military issues and reveals the overconfidence in things like tanks or patriot missiles (shown to be worthless in uke).

      Ah TEXAS! From what I have been hearing / seeing “Abbott’s Stand” is more of a Potemkin Village move designed to satisfy the hoi polloi that the brave WEFer governor is actually standing up to O’biden and the globalists. . Apparently the NGO sponsored human invaders are still invading just a short distance from the disputed entry point. IOW it’s” good theater” that seems to be satisfying the restless natives for the time being. Perhaps the “tough” governor is angling for federal office based on his “bold stance”. Enjoy the show…

        Eagle pass is just a model – that can be spread. If they are stopped there, they can be stopped in the rest of Texas.

    • cowbell81 February 26, 2024 at 10:09 am #

      A point I came across in some of my recent reading was that people were very polite to each other back in the 18th Century, namely because if they were not then someone could be challenged to a duel. This would result in the death of one or the other. Best to be polite and on your best behavior.

      Maybe we should bring back the tradition of the duel?

        Andrew Jackson, former President, had his honor challenged by the former husband of Andy’s current wife, stating that Andy had married him without her being properly divorced. A duel was challenged.

        Andy and his challenger paced off the necessary paces and turned to face each other. Andy Jackson stood their and waited while his challenger took aim and shot him, the ball lodging in his chest hear his lung. Andy then calmly took aim and shot the other man dead.

        Andy Jackson then lived the rest of his life with a cough from the bullet staying in his chest.

        Like him or hate him, Andrew Jackson was a mean son of a bitch.

        That is one of my favorite stories of our Presidents from the past.

        • Beryl of Oyl February 26, 2024 at 11:09 am #

            Andrew Jackson was the only President who paid off the entire Federal Debt. He also had a serious hatred against Federal banking.

            He told the Supreme Court to go Eff themselves and come and enforce their own judgments.

            He was also the first President to enter the office as a poor man and exit as a multi-millionaire. He abrogated peace treaties with native Americans (see Cherokee), buy up the vacated property before the investors and then sell it for an amazing profit.

            He was a mean son of a bitch and that part of him I admire. He was also evil and corrupt. That I don’t admire.

      Unkie, you remind me of my initial trip to Thailand, in 1968. I was impressed by the soft-spoken, polite and non-confrontational nature of just about every interaction I witnessed.

      Then I realized something. “This is just like it was back in Texas.”

      No in-your-face “Fuck you” Nu Yawk attitude because you assume, not irrationally, that the party you are facing off with may be armed. They most likely act in a similar manner – given the important exception of the Blacks, for whom impulse control is of sore concern (how about that felony-prone cat just shot his judge daddy in Alabama?)

      Thailand is awash in firearms, so much so that illegal possession is considered something of a misdemeanor. Take a step over the border into Malaysia and one round of ammo in your pocket could earn you a death penalty sentence (a hangover from “The Emergency” – Commie insurrection in the 1950s). I hate to think of the number of times I was offered a heater by kids, motorcycle taxi drivers, friends of friends.

      Alas, working against this demure nature is a very low flash point in the ambient mentality. Thus the many spectacular murders you can read about every day.

I am amazed at how many people in my family know things are off in this Country but they don’t know where to direct their attention to. They blame Trump. They blame Biden. None of them know anything about the Federal Reserve, the WEF or the military-industrial complex. This is beyond the orange man and the house plant sitting in the White House. This started when Abraham Lincoln over threw the Constitution of 1789 with his war against the southern states and their people.

        • Cankerpuss February 26, 2024 at 4:36 pm #

          Loosethedogs,

          Three things happened about 111 years ago that accelerated the growth of leviathan.

          1. The advent of the Federal Reserve Bank (enabled the Government to run up massive debts and deficit spending making funding wars all the more easier).
          2. The advent of the income tax (the process to amend the constitution was done in the most shady of manners).
          3. Elimination of the Senate as a representative of the State, turning it into nothing more than a glorified House of Representatives (this was the death of the states’ rights compromise of the founders and gave unchecked growth to the Federals).

          Abe Lincoln took what was once a union of sovereign states and turned it into a grotesque federal organization with a bunch of administrative regions.

          • Socrates-Detroit February 27, 2024 at 1:14 am #

            I enjoyed today’s history summary by JHK.

            And also by @ Cankerpuss–as good a summary as any of the root causes of America’s decline, all of which happened around the time my grandfather was getting off the boat from Hellas.

            A major factor in France’s condition was its financial situation–which was not good.

            While France was instrumental in helping the Colonists (or rebels) defeat the British (the decisive role of the French fleet at Yorktown as well as French aid in general), two decades earlier, France lost the French and Indian War, 1755-63 (Britain, the colonists, and THEIR Indian allies vs France and their Indian allies). France lost Canada as a result.

            This was an expensive conflict for both sides. To equip and send armies to the New World to fight. The costs of soldiers, equipment, SHIPS, was huge.

            The French were unable to sufficiently address the costs and debts of the war.

            I was taught “No taxation without representation”.

            However, Britain had just expended millions of pounds and many lives to PROTECT the colonists. HARD money too, not elastic fiat paper money. The new taxes were unpopular in the Colonies and helped lead to a revolt (the American Revolution).

            In any case, Britain weathered the economic effects much better than France, it seems.

            My understanding is that in the late 1700s, Britain (or perhaps England) had 10 million population, the US 2 million, and France 28 million.

            France was likely the richest nation in Europe in terms of production of food and things at that time (though the steam engine was invented in Britain, and would usher the Industrial Revolution of the 1800s).

            The point of my little history spiel is that fiscal irresponsibility unraveled France and led to revolution and turmoil.

            Once Napoleon imposed “order”, he was able to harness the potential of France, to field a powerful army, which under the leadership of this military genius, dominated Europe (for a while). So France was wealthy–but without fiscal order, the ability to realize wealth potential is compromised.

            America has been fiscally irresponsible my whole life (and that is one of SEVERAL elephants in the room), but the debt “curve” is becoming more hyperbolic by the year…

            A more enterprising student of history might investigate the Rothschilds’ role in events between France and England during the 18th century.

            The MO of central bankers was to get monarchs in debt. The monarch then paid lots of interest to the bankers. If the monarch failed to do so? Well, the bankers could not simply arrest the king, could they? No. But, they could loan the neighboring king money, maybe more money, or on better terms, to build up his army, to attack the delinquent king and defeat him, and take his territory, which could then be taxed to raise the money with which to pay the central bankers.

            And when the winning king stepped out of line, then the bankers could throw their support behind another king, perhaps even the delinquent king or his heirs, and repeat the process.

            The bankers just became more powerful.

            This is why Jefferson feared central bankers.

            The Rothschilds begin in earnest in the late 1700s; France had fiscal issues even BEFORE the the French and Indian War (John Law).

            Perhaps the Rothschilds had something to do with the events leading to the French Revolution and Reign of Terror? Perhaps not. An enterprising student of history might find some dots worth connecting here. Or not.

            But big money definitely has a lot to do with where things are today.

          loosethedogs, I am going to jump in here and try and be the devil’s advocate.

          Somewhere around 2012 Martin Armstrong was preaching that gold would decline, while the gold bugs were preaching “Gold to da moon”. Well, gold declined, and I decided that I would start reading MA to prove him wrong. The more I read, the more I realized that there was logic to most of that which he was promoting.

          I would like to provide some information, “food for thought”, and get counter arguments, which I will attempt to provide additional information (assuming that this is not against JHK’s rules).

          So I will start with the following:

          “The Fed is not evil, but rather it is the manipulation of the Fed by politicians. It is use to blame for economy booms and busts while Congress avoids all responsibility. Now, the Fed is stuck in a very difficult situation. It is charges with Keyensian/Marxist ideas of manipulating the economy when its original design was only to deal with a banking crisis.”

        I deal with the same thing!

        They have no idea, because they don’t know, because these things were never taught in school or discussed on the networks or the papers then, or on mainstream media now.

        All we can do is try to break it down in as small bites as possible and try to explain and get them to understand. Usually they are not willing to listen, or “don’t like politics”. But, if they have a significant event, where the narrative is different from their personal experience, sometimes they are more willing to step back and look at things differently, and see all the key events and facts that have been painted out of the landscape, or camouflaged by the school system, college, and media.

      Last week I had a representative of our newly Congressional “representative” come to our office. This rep of the rep told us the new rep wanted to be there to help us and wanted to represent our district and wanted to change Washington. When the rep of the rep said this I audibly laughed out loud. He heard me and asked me why I was laughing. So I told him. “Our representatives don’t represent shit, they do as the party bosses tell them to do.” He didn’t respond to my comment but moved on with his diatribe.

      @Nick Reynolds

      I completely agree with you!

      If he/she is on the news, or we know them, at best they are a very high ranking “servant”.

      The string pullers like to operate behind the scenes without revealing their identity. If your enemy (and they are the enemy of free people and peace) is invisible, you can’t confront him, can you?

      What’s changed now, compared to 40 years ago, is they are a little more brazen about it.

      40 years ago, virtually no one had heard of the Council on Foreign Relations, or the Triliteral Commission, or the Bilderberg Group. Their meetings were typically low-key, closed to the press, and what we knew of them came from LOCAL news reports, who might have noted their meetings, but NEVER mainstream media.

      Now we have the Munich Security Conference, and WEF (World Economic Forum) Davos meetings, and they get press. Or perhaps they are a front to make it seem they get press? IDK.

      Robespierre, like Kissinger, Clinton, Nixon, Bush, Brzezinski, etc, was a front man for someone else. IMO.

      (This doesn’t mean that some one who is NOT in the club, or was but leaves the club is automatically “good”. Hitler comes to mind. But they might be–Putin comes to mind).

      And IMO, if one has the time and skills to go down the rabbit hole, they will find BIG MONEY orchestrating this, and BIG MONEY is supported by the forces of darkness, the Devil, who is (for the time being) the master of this world to the extent God allows (for the time being).

      There is a spiritual dimension to this. In the West, that is manifested by the man-made divisions and deviations in Christianity, where even nominal “Christian” denominations hold view that, on closer scrutiny, do not comport with the teachings of Jesus Christ and His apostles. For example, the Eucharist.

      Another example: there is a hot war in the Ukraine, of course. But the war has also divided the Orthodox Christians, and as such, weakened the Christian Orthodox Church–which is one of the Devil’s (or the “blob” if you prefer) biggest targets. And that’s why, even though you have several million Christian Orthodox in the US, and quite a few are converts, it’s pretty much painted out of the landscape here. We will hear about Jewish holidays, Muslim holidays, from media and even the corporate home webpage, but not about Pascha (aka “Easter”). That’s why the Turks relentlessly pursued and killed Christians in the Ottoman Empire (culiminating in the 1st genocide of the 20th century, the Armenians), but typically Turks did not harass “Western” Churches or Jews.

    For all the complaints and finger pointing the salient fact is that the vast bulk of the population is dependent on the system creaking along towards its doom. As long as the can CAN be kicked, it WILL be kicked.

    The population will not explode until the system breaks down.

      When considering this theme it is good to remember some things:

      First this beauty from Frank Zappa; “The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”

      The American people swapped freedom for “security” a long time ago.

      And the best interpretation (artistic) of the French Revolution I have ever seen is “Marat De Sade”*. It’s available on YouTube and Amazon Prime and well worth watching or watching again if you’ve seen it before.

      People can still pay for their meth, can still download their porn, can still tune in to watch the bachelor, can still pay for NFL tickets, can still whip out the credit card to pay for their vacation. People are still getting tattoos, still piercing everything on their faces, still coloring their hair purple and green (I saw an old man in the grocery store yesterday with a pink goatee. I kid you not. A fucking PINK goatee). The newest I-phones are flying on the shelves every time they are released. Extremely expensive homes still have people paying cash for them. I still see a lot of Teslas on the road.

      I agree, Epicur. This are still TOO GOOD in America to warrant a “thermidorian reaction.”

        My son is growing his beard out and intends to dye half of it red in time to see Pantera play in the Twin Cities this summer. (in homage to the late Dimebag Darrell, he says).

        But he’s very young, and this kool-aid beard thing is to be temporary and very Dimebag-oriented, so it’s fine by me. So long as he cuts it off and keeps holding down his full-time job.

        I hope to God he never gets a tattoo, though.

      The US Corporation has ~7.5Trillion $ to pony up by June 30 when that amount of US treasury (FED) bonds mature, i.e. come due. They have to either default/bankrupt or print the money (i.e. add digits on a computer) yielding hyperinflation (right now, the US treasury dept is issuing bonds that ONLY the FED reserve then buys). When a 100$ credit on your CDBC or SS account will only buy a McDonald’s burger and fries (for one), the asleep people will start reacting; that’s when CW2 will be able to start with a sequence of secessions (Tx, Tn, Ok, SC, Ga, Ark, Ala, for starters). All of these states have a population with 40%+ gun ownership; compare that to the blue states. Also 75% of the Army, Navy, Marines, and NG are politically ‘red.’ Things are READY!!!!

      • SpeedyBB February 26, 2024 at 4:54 pm #

        As an Air Force brat and student of military thinking, I would suggest that there will be no military intervention until cabals of “young colonels” coalesce and decide to go into action.

        Top brass is totally compromised and part of the elite. Soldiers and NCOs do as they are told. It has to be the captains, majors and colonels.

        On the plus side, Army lieutenants and sub commanders proved themselves amazingly inventive and improvisational geniuses in the fog of World War II, when a commanding officer was blown up or communications had broken down. This was extremely effective against the rigid-thinking, hierarchy-trapped Japs.

        Luftwaffe ace Franz Stigler once recounted to me how “…the Gestapo came to my mother’s house because someone had reported that she was listening to foreign broadcasts. I told them I would strafe their HQ if they ever bothered her again.”

        Once officers’ families start to get shot up, looted or the base commissary runs out of victuals they will be energized into making “alternative arrangements”. Getting rid of the generals and admirals, not to mention the politicians, will be top on the list of priorities.

        Also, shutting down the corporate media.

    If there is a “Thermidorian Reaction” I imagine it will have to come from within the US military itself. Any other mischief attempted by average citizens will simply be put down mercilessly, likely using technologies we haven’t even heard of yet.

        Ironically, the people could put this down peacefully. Just stop paying their taxes. I owe Uncle Sam about $2,000 this year. Never before have I considered not sending the money than I have this year. What if all us net taxpayers in this Country just said “screw it” and didn’t pay. What if all of us property owners in this wretched Country just stopped sending the annual property tax payment to the County?

        Starve the beast. We have the power. The problem is Americans can’t even agree on what a woman is much less agree on starving the beast by not paying our taxes.

          Yes, one would think they couldn’t possibly send that many SWAT teams to all those homes, but where there’s a will, there’s a way.

            “Yes, one would think they couldn’t possibly send that many SWAT teams to all those homes”

            Tuco, TS, et al:

            “They” would not need to. They would select a few high-value events in each city. Each would be assaulted with overwhelming force and violence. Every second would be put on tape, and from several angles. The protestor and his family would be vilified on every forum…loud and often. The family of the protestor would be put on the street to live in a cardboard box under the Interstate…dirty, hungry, weeping, they would be preyed upon by vicious vagrants… pimps…maybe even Canadians. They would be made an example of, and that example would be on every media outlet for days…until the next example.

            …then comes the amnesty…with strings attached, of course.

            Nationwide, there are 2.4 sworn police officers (of all types, fed, state, local) per 1000 people. Active duty military is far less than 1% of the population. The ‘cops’ don’t stand a chance.

            Interestingly, along these lines, in Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag, he reports that during the Stalin purges, 10-15 adults living in an apartment kowtowed to 2 KGB officers with revolvers, and allowed themselves to be arrested. Solzhenitsyn recalled that situation with remorse asking how a large number of people with hammers, knives, and heavy wrenches, were afraid of a couple of KGB thugs. There is a lesson herein.

          • Soul Forensics February 26, 2024 at 6:25 pm #

            neurodoc,

            Solzhenitsyn also extrapolated from numbers in and around 1938 that if arrests had maintained the same pace that the entire population of the U.S.S.R. would have been gulag-housed or dead in another decade.

            And you’re right, he bemoaned the fact that citizens went so meekly to their demise. But then, Russia had long been a slave (serf) collective for a very long time. It became part of their DNA.

        • Rowdypiglet February 26, 2024 at 11:25 am #

          @Cankerpuss, I don’t think that would work. First, all of their money is fake anyway. If you don’t pay, what? They just print for themselves or create out of thin air the amount you would have paid? How would that differ from what they’re doing now?

          Second, they’d make very ugly examples of a selected few people, and that would be the end of it.

          However, and I know I’ve boringly said this repeatedly, if people who do real work withhold their labor, that genuinely would bring things to a head. What if mechanics, electricians, plumbers, farmers, truckers, stockers at the grocery store, simply stopped showing up? Money doesn’t make things operative (especially when it’s fake money) but these people’s services DO make our world work. The truckers who are refusing to deliver to NYC have the right idea, but it needs to be expanded. Teachers staying home and withholding their “labor” would actually make the world a better place, but plumbers not turning up is another matter entirely.

          • tuco22 February 26, 2024 at 11:47 am #

            I believe Charles Hugh Smith wrote an article about this some time back, the workers that make the system go round simply not showing up anymore because it no longer pays to do so. I think this is being implemented with regard to the military and police forces.

        Do not forget the millions of illegal invaders. When money also drys up for them, and perhaps before that, they will be attacking Americans in their homes, or anywhere they can be found. Do not understand the supposed 30,000 military aged Chinese who have crossed our border, since China keeps a tight rein on all comings and goings. My take is they are special operations from the CC military sent for a specific purpose like sabotage, guerrilla warfare, and infrastructure attacks. Of course, other countries may be sending military for the same, as well as emptying their jails, as has been reported. Sadly, the tribe against tribe may be very close at hand.

    This morning – as I was thinking about getting out of bed to get ready for the day, I must’ve been still half asleep, and suddenly I had a “vision”, or an emanation from my unconscious. I saw a giant bloodshot eye staring at a giant clock. The eye was clouded over, and was not seeing that the clock was ticking down, time was running out….I’m not a psychic, but to me, this image of the giant eye represents unconscious humanity, not realizing how close to a collective disaster we are.

    Great post today, Jim. I was glued to reading it. I love reading history.

    A few days ago you posted and asked a question about the reprobates and deviants running the clusterfuck we call America. After reading that I posted a comment that said something to the effect that these fuckers who are foisting this nightmare upon us will not find themselves immune to the wrath of the people when the people finally have had enough. Your write up today reinforces my comment of that day. Eventually, the Jacobins that caused the French nightmare earned the same treatment they had placed on so many others.

    “Are you waiting for it?” You asked.

    Yes, Jim, I am waiting for it. Eagerly. I have been waiting for it for years now. The system is broken but it seems to just keep plodding on in spite of itself. Perhaps that is a shout out to the American people. The “tell all” evidence of a broken system is in the $34 trillion dollar debt and trillions in deficit spending. Nobody in their right mind can declare any country with such a debt burden as healthy. Nobody in their right mind can declare 17 trillion in private debt as healthy.

    The system is broken. A correction MUST come. My question is when and what will finally be the fatal flea that finally causes the massive collapse?

    And so I will continue waiting.

    Face it, the tact of the feminist movement since the 1960s predicated itself on the simplistic contention that no distinction could be made between maleness and bestiality. Simply survey the general condition of males today to recognize the result, pudgy slobs as though puberty had never occurred.

    Brings-to-mind the common expression known during my youth (I’m 86) “pussy whipped”. Not a label that can be applied to Trump regardless of criticisms otherwise, possibly signaling too underlying social psychological explanation for why so many men today broadcast revolt with motor-cycle rebel regalia or otherwise refusing to “doll themselves up”.

    Consequent reaction to self-respecting male grooming and mannered gentlemanliness having been kicked-aside by “pussyfied”?

    Go figure. Being of my age I’m caused to reflect back to the love and honor displayed by female family members toward brothers, in-law, uncles and cousins coming home from WWII and Korean war?

    Despite Mr Kunstler’s history lesson, nothing will happen to the deep state even if they allow Mr Trump to win again. He will say it’s time to get America back on track and leave it at that. Oh, there may be a few show pony senate hearings, some humiliation, but no bloody revenge. I know I’m right. Keep the circle jerk of revenge fantasy going if it will float all of your collective boats.

        And how will he prevent WW3? He’s got 4 years to remain in power and then what? Plus November is really far away…WWIII can happen today, tomorrow, the day after or any time this year. I don’t see how one man can prevent such an event from going down… The fact is Neocons don’t give a shit, and unless Trump can get rid of these neocon assholes, he’s not going to prevent anything from happening.

          I think that if Hilary Clinton had been elected, WW3 would have already started. And probably ended. She was gung ho on continuing the Obama policy of provoking Russia.

          So Trump, and Putin, gave us an extra four years of life, just by refusing to go along with the plan.

      docmartin – you’ve not been listening. Drumpf has already – more than once – outlined just exactly what he’d do:

      1) Take over all roles of Government with an absolutist power grab;
      2) Pull out of NATO and leave Europe for Putin to do with what he wishes;
      3) Weaponize the DOJ to prosecute political opponents;
      4) Put armed guards on the border with ‘shoot to kill’ orders;

      As if that’s not enough…

      • Anthea February 27, 2024 at 3:26 am #

        @ Mike Sherman:

        1) Not sure what you mean by this one. Perhaps you mean purging the government of traitors who are destroying the country.
        2) We should pull out of NATO. Let Europe see to its own defense–and pay for it. What Putin/Russia wants is to engage in mutually profitable trade with Europe: Russia sells them gas; Germany enjoys the prosperity of an industrial economy.
        3) I think it would be good for the DOJ to prosecute traitors.
        4) Putting armed guards on the border with “shoot to kill” orders would be the normal methods nations employ to defend their borders, if such is necessary.

        What’s the problem?

        • benr February 27, 2024 at 7:03 am #

          The lie is that Mike Sherman aka Majella likes the United States.

    The French Revolution happened because peasants were starving while the elite lived in luxury. That had been several previous peasant uprisings that failed, this was not a one time thing, it was a series of revolts that got bigger and bigger until one finally worked. Respectfully, I do not see US citizens rising up en masse against their national government any time soon. They live in comfort, and aren’t going to take up arms because it costs more than it used to, to buy groceries, I think that the Texas Border Crisis could eventually escalate into a full-blown Secession Crisis, but again, I don’t see that happening soon, more as a possible threat for some point down the road.

      I hope that a secessionist movement takes place and is done without the bloodshed of a civil war, but I don’t see the leaders of those red states having the conviction to actually go through with it.

      Any revolution will most likely be driven by the hopeless youth of today, and their goals are dangerously leftist.

      • Mike Sherman February 26, 2024 at 8:00 pm #

        Besides, most of those Red States rely on a net INPUT of Federal tax dollars. Without the Feds, these States will have to get serious about local taxation and fleece their newly independent citizenry like never before. Good luck with all that.

        • Anthea February 27, 2024 at 3:40 am #

          @ Mike Sherman:

          I think it may be true that the blue cities in the red states enjoy a net input of feder tax dollars. (They don’t produce anything and require an immense amount of costly services.)

          The main difficulty with secession is that it would leave the blue cities, and most of their inhabitants, high and dry. The newly independent citizenry of the blue cities would doubtless be in some difficulty, as they would have to engage in productive work of some kind. The red areas outside the cities would manage reasonably well. Their main difficulty is that even the rural red areas are full of government employees and quasi-government employees.

          My guess is that the blue cities would empty out, and many of their people would emigrate to non-seceding blue cities in blue states. The former government employees and quasi-government employees in rural red areas would piss and moan about having to get a real job, but the seceding states’ ecnomies would be booming, so they’d find ample means of employment. They’d still piss and moan for the rest of geological time, about having lost the comforts of looting their fellow citizens, but their complaints would fall on deaf ears.

    Well, back in the day, TPTB killed this guy, his wife, and young daughter (and made it look like murder/suicide) … for putting together what now looks to be a very realistic dystopian vision for the US, moving forward (Gray State).

    youtube.com/watch?v=Gy7FVXERKFE

    You can read about that appalling incident, here: policestateusa.com/gray-state-and-his-family-dead-in-apparent-murder-suicide/

    They then made a propaganda-doco telling everyone “for sure he actually DID kill his young family and then himself” … and conveniently gave it almost the same “(A) Gray State” name (along with some serious SEO), such that the original would eventually disappear off normal search results and be permanently memory-holed.

    One wonders why the shadow-people were so bothered by it. Perhaps we’re about to find out.

  32. Monas2 February 26, 2024 at 11:25 am #

    There’s no predicting what will happen, period. But there’s no doubt something will happen, and it won’t be an orderly process. Violence is almost assured. A country with so much dishonesty and outright malevolence imbedded in it’s institutions, coupled with half of it’s population living in queersville, simply can’t avoid a crash landing. Buckle up and prepare for the crash.

    The Waters of March
    Antonio Carlos Jobim

    A stick, a stone, it’s the end of the road,
    It’s the rest of a stump, it’s a little alone,
    It’s a sliver of glass, it is life, it’s the sun,
    It is night, it is death, it’s a trap, it’s a gun.
    The oak when it blooms, a fox in the brush,
    The nod of the wood, the song of a thrush,
    The wood of the wing, a cliff, a fall,
    A scratch, a lump, it is nothing at all.

    It’s the wind blowing free, it’s the end of a slope,
    It’s a bean, it’s a void, it’s a hunch, it’s a hope.
    And the riverbank talks of the Waters of March,
    It’s the end of the strain, it’s the joy in your heart.

    The foot, the ground, the flesh and the bone,
    The beat of the road, a sling-shot stone,
    A truckload of bricks in the soft morning light,
    The shot of a gun in the dead of the night.
    A mile, a must, a thrust, a bump,
    It’s a girl, it’s a rhyme, it’s a cold, it’s the mumps.
    The plan of the house, the body in bed,
    And the car that got stuck, it’s the mud, it’s the mud.

    Afloat, adrift, a flight, a wing,
    A cock, a quail, the promise of spring.
    And the riverbank talks of the Waters of March,
    It’s the promise of life, it’s the joy in your heart.

    A point, a grain, a bee, a bite,
    A blink, a buzzard, a sudden stroke of night,
    A pin, a needle, a sting, a pain,
    A snail, a riddle, a wasp, a stain.
    A snake, a stick, it is John, it is Joe,
    A fish, a flash, a silvery glow.
    And the riverbank talks of the Waters of March,
    It’s the promise of life in your heart, in your heart.

    A stick, a stone, the end of the load,
    The rest of a stump, a lonesome road.
    A sliver of glass, a life, the sun,
    A night, a death, the end of the run.
    And the riverbank talks of the Waters of March,
    It’s the end of all strain, it’s the joy in your heart.

          Can’t wait for your “MAGAt, hurr durr” reply as if “MAGAt” is some clever wordplay you can’t stop congratulating yourself for repeating, ad nauseam. Allow me a little kind, helpful advice: it doesn’t even rhyme; it’s DUMB; you know, like modern Hollywood and Saturday Night humor. Sound it out: it’s based on “MAGA,” i.e., MA-GA, so “MAGAt” sounds like MA-GAT, not MAG-GOT or MAG-IT. The more you write it, the stupider you look.

          Further to what may be your unsurpassed inanity, there’s a new article out entitled, Starship Troopers is Not a Satire. You should read it. The “brilliance” of logorrheic shitlib “midwits” like you who not only suffer from malnourished critical thinking skills but also can be relied on to salivate in response to whatever the status quo decides “the next thing” is, on demand, like one of Pavlov’s dogs to the sound of his bell, all the while reassuring themselves they’re exceptionally intelligent, independent thinkers, is described in stunning detail. You’ll feel right at home, I swear.

    Your closing words has been written in many forms by many writers at many different periods of American history. Using the French as an analogy is disingenuous as any reading of French history reveals dozens of changes in governments and monarchies in the time that we have been a country. Witness the Paris Commune’s existence of only a few months. We are far more practical here. You seem to welcome the “revolution”. Most of us know it is nothing to be welcomed. Far more welcome will be the obsolescence and death of the boomer and later Xer generations who have done nothing but suck from the teat of all that have come before. The younger generation will see the way forward and work together in ways you cannot even imagine.

    There is one old habit that American conservatives need to change: conservatives continue to refer to the radical Socialist scum that now controls the Democrat Party as “Communists.” To be sure, many of them are Communists, but many of them are also Fascists. The key point is that the Democrat Party is now a toxic mix of Communist/SOCIALISTS and Fascist/SOCIALISTS. Both factions are totalitarian, both factions hate free market capitalism, both hate the U.S. Constitution and Rule of Law, the elite of both factions hate American citizens and would exterminate any American opposing Democrat scum dictatorial rule when given an opportunity, and both factions are completely evil to the core.

    No longer is the American political scene about polite debate between two ideologies–conservative and liberal–that have more in common than what differentiates them; it is now a war (cold only for the moment if things don’t change) between a conservative ideology that believes in freedom and the Socialist ideology that is determined to crush freedom. The Democrat Party is now a party of profound evil that, sooner or later, must be destroyed as it now exists.

    Just how evil the Democrat Party is willing to be is going to be amply illustrated in the coming months. In a fair election, the Democrat Party is likely to be decimated at the ballot box, but, more than likely, the Democrat Party will perpetrate the most heinous acts of fraud and violence to “win” the election or will burn the entire election process to the ground before November.

    Or course, whatever happens will be blamed on conservatives, just like how the Democrat scum and its boot-licking media hacks have largely omitted the fact the University of Georgia female student was murdered by an illegal alien running free after being “caught and released” by New York, while the media now is “blaming” the victim for being careless or “irresponsible” for walking in a public park. Democrat Socialist pigs are just waiting for a violent reaction to this kind of Socialist tyranny, so they have an excuse to extinguish the Constitutional rights of anyone who opposes the Socialist regime.

    JHK is correct–if this breaks bad, it will break incredibly bad. Anti-freedom Democrat thugs had better figure out that freedom-loving, working Americans don’t like their freedom, their property, or their lives taken from them by criminal thugs, be those thugs in or out of government. They’ve had just about enough of that shit.

      You promised us that you had repented.

        No date jar, I repented. So what is it you want? Get thee to a excorcist, for a full life still possible in these your twilight years. Many goodies on the tube, the utube. I posted one in the last couple threads.

    “The insane Jacobin program of terror and social derangement was swiftly abolished. Nothing like it was seen again until the Bolsheviks, the Maoists and the Khmer Rouge came along in the 20th century, and now, in our time, The Party of Chaos…”

    Bad ideas never die. They just get reincarnated and regenerated and appear in various places upon our troubled Planet.

    You can remove a man or woman from the Earth but you can’t wipe away the bad ideas they have believed in and worked to promote. Humans seem to love to recycle their worse ways of acting and thinking. We seem to be stuck in a feedback loop of self-defeating and destructive behaviors that some member of our species seeks to transcend while others seem to enjoy always sloshing around in a tub filled to the brim with their own waste products.

    “America is headed for its own Thermidorian Reaction… something is going to blow in our country, and pretty soon.”

    Any person with a tea pot knows this. You can keep a lid on a boiling cauldron for just so long before the contents explode and expel themselves in all directions without regard for what gets ruined in the process.

    The Dark State has long been fomenting anger and dissonance and waging various forms of attack against We the People. And We the People – just like in any area of the Globe that becomes a boiling cauldron – are going to find ways to respond to this boiling of our skin and futures.

    There seem to be many among us in fact that enjoy that We are being boiled alive. Out of their own personal mental deficiencies and devianicies and death-wishes for themselves… they cheer on the chaos and destruction. While others of us have tolerated this ongoing (now generational) attack from the Dark State with various degrees of patience, disgust, and collective anger.

    There’s been a popular bumper-sticker which one still might still see from time to time that reads, ‘GOD BLESS AMERICA!’.

    Well, that display gets half the story right and leaves out the other half. God HAS ALREADY long-blessed America. But the other half of the bumper stick needs to read, ‘BUT AMERICA EFFED IT UP!’

    Not all America. And not all Americans. But enough to ruin the stew and the Nation. And certainly most all of today’s ‘Ruling Class’ that in fact should not rule anything and that has no class.

    God blessed America. America effed it up. The pot is boiling. And America and the pot and all of us are next going to be scorched by the red-hot-liquid-contents and we are never going to look or be the same.

    And God will bless some other Nation and hope that they will respond much better than we have. And that all they want in a tea pot is tea.

    “America is headed for its own Thermidorian Reaction.”

    But is should be emphasized that before the Reaction was the dictatorship (approximately August of 1793 to March 1794).

    Crushing dissent was the essence of Robespierriste
    dictatorship. His coup was swiftly followed by the suppression of most newspapers and publications.
    Because without annihilating press freedom, disinformation and manipulation could not have achieved its firm grip.

    I believe it can be persuasively argued that the French Revolution consisted of three revolutions, a democratic republican revolution, a moderate Enlightenment constitutional monarchism invoking Montesquieu and the British model as its criteria of legitimacy and an authoritarianism prefiguring modern fascism.

    It just may be that in late February of 2024 that we are only on the cusp of real dictatorship (moving from an increasingly inadequate attempt at narrative persuasion or the so-called necessity to save democracy) to a more hard-core totalitarian coercion.

    Command headquarters (our 19 intelligence agencies) have not yet made their final decision.

    If we’re going to adopt a national execution device for our Jacobins, I vote for the wood chipper.

    Feet first. So sick of this national looting, and these pathological snobs who seem to think that obedience is their due.

    I know I sound OTT, but I do fantasize, especially when I think of how my mother was imprisoned in her last days, denied cancer surgery, and died alone, thanks to public health criminals drunk on power. They did that while plundering her bank account and (probably) stealing her vote. Hell, I’d gladly help with the first chipper candidate, telling him or her, “This is for my mother.”

    IMO, our Benevolent Host has the cart before the horse. I’m sure he knows the French Revolution quite well but, sometimes one must look for prior motives. Like the people being desperate for somebody to hear their grievances against the elites and take action on their behalf to remedy them.

    Robespierre was the only one to take the grievances of the Third Estate and revolt against the First (clergy) and Second (nobles) Estates who were too corrupt to remedy themselves or their privileges. He wasn’t wrong to do what he did. He tried to ride the tiger and lost control of it. Instead of the Third Estate being awarded its proper reparations, the Reign of Terror went off on a wild tangent and began radical social engineering.

    Who is the First Estate today? JEWS. They also have total control over the churches and seminaries. I am just citing Harold Wallace Rosenthal on that one. If you don’t agree, you’re a hateful anti-Semite, racist, and bigot.

    Who is the Second Estate today? Corporate elites, banksters, and senior Federal officials (both elected and appointed). Secular Jews (and their Shabbos Goyim) also make up a disproportionate percentage of that class. Not by merit but, by Hook AND Crook.

    At this time, I don’t see a new Adolf Hitler to rescue Whites (especially employed straight White men) from our Talmudic oppressors. The Jews have done their homework and, with skillful use of psychology and social engineering, they have tied Gulliver down with chains instead of mere rope.

            I just boggles my mind how people sit on this site criticizing the federal government, criticizing Deep State, you’ll openly criticize anyone BUT the very people you are willing to defend. Nevermind the fact that they hate you are the main ones trying to make your own country unrecognizable so they can flee to their own country and laugh at you whites disappear from both America and Europe.

            But you go ahead and keep defending them. I’m just a half breed who once use to love America but see who runs it. And the saying goes anyone you can’t criticize, that’s who you know runs that place. Not only have you people totally lost America, you don’t even have the respect from your own women either. Who gladly spread their legs and advocate open borders. What other ethnicity of women does that besides white ones? Who’s using interracial porn to make them believe you white men are inferior to negros sexually? Who’s using Disney to promote faggotry to your kids?

            Everyone wants a scapegoat, and the Jews are easy to scapegoat.
            A very long running campaign to demonize them has been going on and is in full screech mode right now.
            Are there some bad people who happen to be Jews?
            Sure.

            I know some really nasty people with no religion also enmeshed in the system in fact the Roman Catholics have some pretty nasty shit in their history.
            The Vatican has been pulling the strings of power for a thousand years it wouldn’t surprise me if they are still whispering nastiness about Jews just like they did in Europe.

            While we are at it them Muslims sure hate Jews and have been attacking them off and on for the last seven hundred years.
            All because some Jews mad fun of mad Mo.

            That accounts for two billion people who have some sort of Grudge against them Jews.

            Oh, wait and the regular Christians since them Jews insisted the Roman put Jesus on the cross.

            Thats three million people with some form of reason to dislike them beyond all the propaganda.

            As far as fearing Jews that might be the dumbest thing, I have seen in two weeks.

We agree with both and disagree with both. We can synthesize them because we attained the apex of the triangle and from there, drew our own higher, line. How did we do that? Because we asked the right question: What is good for the Nation, the People at the full stature, past (culture), present (capacities and deficits) and future (vision).

          Bean, when it comes to hate, nothing comes close to Jewish hatred of Whites. Especially the dreaded employed straight White Man.

          I’m going to keep repeating myself.

          **I**READ**YOUR**STUFF**

          “YOUR STUFF” being Jewish content online and in print. I don’t make anything up because it is too easy for me to go directly to Rabbi Shlomo’s hate-filled mouth.

          BTW, when I hear these overeducated Black Sistas vomit forth their anti-White bile, that putrid phlegm has a lot of Gefilte Fish chunks mixed in it.

          Again, I can surf around in old Civil Rights content and find Jews stoking discontent among the Blacks. Again, as I said previously, Civil Rights in the modern context is Jewish hate laundered through the dark races and then those proxies project against the White nations. There’s no need to cite the obvious because we can see this in plain daylight. I have plenty of pix showing Jews marching with huge banners saying, “JEWS FOR BLACK LIVES MATTER” and “BLACK LIVES MATTER IS A JEWISH MATTER.”

          Why am I so virulent on this? Because Jews have made it clear that they want Whites eliminated. Either through mass mongrelization (the single “golden” mutt race you rhapodized previously) or by war or by defacto enslavement.

          You can’t shame me on this because you know it’s true and casually spoken of in both the synagogues and in domestic terrorist organizations: like the ADL and AIPAC and SPLC. All you can do is shame me for making it visible.

    I picked up on an on-line article about Nigeria, a country whose travails have always fascinated me.

    I once met an exchange student in Osaka, sponsored for study by the Japanese government. Sharp, energetic, committed guy. In our conversation he complained “Nigeria has the highest per capita rate of business jets to population in the whole world!” alluding to the immense wealth of the military and their cronies, draining the treasury as …

    [Source: BBC]

    “What is causing Nigeria’s economic crisis?

    “Inflation has soared in many countries, as fuel and other costs spiked as a result of the war in Ukraine.

    “But President Tinubu’s efforts to remodel the economy have also added to the burden.”

    Ukraine?? WTF?

    Excuse me, BlobBlobCompany? Ukraine? How did that faraway conflict wend its iniquitous way into the mix of West African economics?

    OK, maybe they export grain to the Africans. Big deal. But still – can’t allow the propaganda to rest, not even a wee moment.

    The Mighty Wurlitzer (excellent term, Mr. K.) just won’t let up its pounding rhythm.

      The Mighty Wurlitzer was coined, as far as I know, by Frank Wisner, one of the original members of the CIA, referring to the CIA’s control over the media.
      And that was in the 60s! Today they have embedded members in various platforms.

      I use the term a lot myself, because I think it is very illustrative. It’s become part of the culture.

    Old Men, Still Naive: Craig Murray: Mea Culpa on Ukraine
    Consortium News, February 24, 2024

    “The same powers who fund and arm Ukraine fund and arm genocide by a racial supremacist Israel. My belief in some kind of inherent decency in the Western political Establishment was naive

    I was complacent in my dismissive attitude to the argument that the Western powers would back ethnic cleansing and massacre in the Donbass by forces including some motivated by Nazi ideology.

    The same powers who are funding and arming Ukraine are funding and arming a genocide by racial supremacist Israeli forces in Gaza. It is beyond argument that my belief in some kind of inherent decency in the Western political Establishment was naive.

    I apologise.”

    Hey look, America, over the years, you’ve plundered and pillaged other places and cultures in the name of ‘capitalism’, you bombed them into ‘democracy’ and using spent uranium, you helped destabilize their democracies and installed puppet dictators, you nuked innocent civilians, you assassinated foreign officials with impunity, you installed military bases all around the world and you engaged in illegal preemptive war under false pretenses.

    So you’ve got an ‘immigration crisis’. Big fucking deal.

      You are quite wrong in your regard to put blame entirely on America for all the things that has been done to the world. It wasn’t US the people that did all that shit. It was the U.S. government that did it. And the Immigration crises is caused on purpose by that same government. They don’t give a shit, the purpose is to have enough of these illegal assholes here so that when things get so bad. We’ll all be fighting and killing each other while they are sitting around on their asses somewhere hiding in Davoa or whatever. People will be doing all the dirty work for WEF. And as for the Israel thing, tell that to the idiots on here who are always calling people “Antisemitic” whenever they call out the Jews for anything they do because of some horseshit they read out of a bible the Jewish themselves wrote in order to convince ignorant white people that they are the Masters of the Universe and own their sorry asses.

      And they can’t figure out WHY they are losing their nations, the rights to their own kids, they’ve lost everything because of them including their own leadership and still defend the them above all else. You can ridicule “Deep State” You can attack the Democrat party, but GOD forbid you mention anything Israel is guilty of doing or else you deserve to be banned and censored according to a large percentage of Christcucks and hardcore Conservatives that for whatever reason love to cling onto these people. What makes them doing what they are doing any different from what any other fucker with power wants to do to people just because they can? Or because they have all the wealth, or because they own half of the universe.

        Yes, the United States is just another piece on the chessboard of the real rulers of the world, and they have their boot on the neck of the American people, just the same as with so many other nations and peoples. It is foolishness to try to identify the American people with the globalists.

        The globalists have systematically stripped Americans of their assets and wealth for generations. Where are the farms your great-grandparents owned? Where are the businesses they owned? The role of the American people in the globalists’ despoilation of the world has been the despoilation of Americans to fund it.

          Read Joel Salatin’s books for how one of ‘the little people’ does his best to resist the food fascists. His accounts of US ignorance of food production are heart-breaking.

          He woke up to the antics of the tyrants years ago. Unlike most of us, who are consumers or at the most gardeners, he has to deal with them constantly to run a farm. He calls them the ‘food police’ but I think it’s worse than that. Fascism is the merger of the state and big business which most western countries seem to have had since 2000 or before.

          In the UK and USA, >50% of the food eaten is now classified as ‘ultra-processed’. In Italy and France this proportion seems to be <10%. Maybe that's why Italians live to 84 on average and Americans 76 even though Italy is poorer.

    “Shortly before his final act in this world, Bushnell posted the following message on Facebook:

    ‘Many of us like to ask ourselves, ‘What would I do if I was alive during slavery? Or the Jim Crow South? Or apartheid? What would I do if my country was committing genocide?’

    ‘The answer is, you’re doing it. Right now.’ ” ~ Caitlin Johnstone

      @ The Man They Call Zazelle:

      Well, re Jim Crow and segregation, I think we are currently getting an object lesson in what happens when blacks are allowed to mix freely with white society: extreme violence and lawlessness, and a degradation of the whole society. Jim Crow and segregation provided a way for whites to live reasonably amicably with blacks.
      . .
      The trouble with trying to deal with black violence and lawlessness through the judicial system is that (i.e., simply enforce the law) is that it is too prevalent, and there are too many of them, for this to be affordable. What I keep saying over and over again–here and elsewhere–is that the reason the cities don’t enforce the law and put the criminals in jail is because they can’t afford to. The cities are broke, and even if they weren’t broke, the cost of incarcerating a large percentage of their population would break the bank. They have no money left even to maintain the streets and pick up the trash. They’d spend their entire budget on keeping blacks in jail.

      While Caitlin Johnstone may well inquire, “What would I do if I was alive during slavery? Or the Jim Crow South? Or apartheid? What would I do if my country was committing genocide?” she might equally well inquire, “What would I do if the cities of America were crime-ridden and unsafe, and were being burned and looted? What would I do if 100,000 Americans a year were dying fentanyl overdoses? What would I do if my country’s government were committing genocide (which it is)?”

      And, of course, the answer would likewise be, “You’re doing it right now.” (If you have some remedy in mind to propose, I’m all ears.)

      Here’s what you do when living in a world full of evils over which you have no control: You treat everyone with kindness, courtesy, and respect. You fulfill the obligations of your station in life: Engage in honest, productive work, take care of your own, and offer as much help to others as you are able. That’s something you can do right now. It’s those grandiose schemes to set things right that lead to those Robespierre types.

        Well that was Bushnell’s quote Johnstone was referring to, perhaps to make the point of doing what’s right– as you suggest very well– but also maybe going beyond the call of duty sometimes– even putting our lives on the line. I suspect that was her, and Bushnell’s, main point.

        I guess when societies collapse and during periods of extreme adversity and emergency is where our mettle really get put to the metal and perhaps where we discover parts of ourselves we never knew we had. How do we perform?

        WRT remedy in mind, there appears no silver bullet, so no remedy as such, but I’ve been working on something related. Unsure it makes sense anymore in these increasingly uncertain times, but I can ping you once or if it is ready for an unveiling. But I’ve already left a link here in the past to its formative brainstorming draft a couple times.

        Excellent observation, @Andrea The levels of crime, lawlessness, and disrespect exceed society’s ability to arrest and imprison the perpetrators.

        Society presumes the overwhelming majority of residents will be law-abiding and not steal, beat, or kill.

        Per Dmitry Orlov, one of the factors that allowed Russia and the Russians to make it through the crisis of the 1990s was that most people followed the rules, and when they did not, it was not the (discredited and in disarray) “authorities” which enforced law and order, but the ordinary people. A code of honor of sorts. Admittedly a lot easier in a much more (but certainly not TOTALLY) homogenous society.

        Perhaps that mentality applied in the ghettos of the US up until the 1950s?

        Just like one can drive like a maniac IF everyone else follows the rules and get away without an accident, if only a few people don’t follow the rules, the maniac will hit, or be hit, by one of them.

        We have way too many people NOT following the rules.

        And why should they? As bad and awful as street crime are, and they are bad, in total dollar terms, WHITE COLLAR CRIME such as embezzlement and other illegal acts dwarfs street crime. And that excludes LAWFUL swindling (the health care industry, the financial industry, crooked government contracts, and so on).

        Yup, we are in bad shape. And as bad as it was, we now have the blood of 30,000 Palestinians on our hands. I’m sure God will just ignore it, the way we ignore them. NOT!!!

    “Many people’s thinking is permeated by state perspectives. One manifestation of this is the unstated identification of states or governments with the people in a country which is embodied in the words ‘we’ or ‘us.’ ‘We must negotiate sound disarmament treaties.’ ‘We must renounce first use of nuclear weapons.’ Those who make such statements implicitly identify with the state or government in question.

    I am not waiting on it, but it is waiting on me. I’ve recently been reminded of the spiritual and sacred nature of hierarchy. Hierarchies can also be thought of as dependency chains. The food chain is an organic example of hierarchy. I feel that the misunderstanding may come in when one confuses freedom for self actualization and equality for optimal cohesion and oneness. Thus the revolution moves us away from the natural harmony that the revolution was intended to return us to. So many dilemmas in our world or due to a lack of understanding and insight. And so many good ideas go to the dustbin after they’ve been mauled by political creatures.

            Just yesterday he called Bo (who is in Florida) demanding to get out of the nursing home (which he calls the hotel) and come “home.” He thinks our house is his home. He has no idea how difficult it is to care for somebody who frequently shits and pisses themselves and has to be bathed.

            He thinks he still has a car that he jumps into and goes to a bar. It has been more than three years since we sold his car and brought him back to Jersey in my truck via AutoTrain. This is all in his demented mind. We try to explain that he needs professionals to care for him 24/7 but he thinks there is nothing wrong with him. Ten minutes after we explain these things to him he forgets the conversation. He also falls frequently and luckily hasn’t broke any bones.

            All three of my kids have visited him and he really loves that since he has no kids of his own and his wife died ten years ago.

        Merritt’s comments about the cottage industry that has sprouted up to “treat Covid injury” is also interesting given what just happened with the fraudulent Wellness Company.

        One of the podcast I listened to was discussing the micro metal particles in the Moderna, pFizer and AstraZeneca Mrna jabs were affected by 5g.
        He went on to say that 5g’s antenna are so small they have figured out how to use sweat gland as mini antennas for the next phase of 5 and 6 g.
        In effect using the human body as a phased array antenna.
        The more humans the more phased arrays which will then form a mesh network not unlike the sidewalk project most people are now part of and don’t even realize.
        “What is Amazon Sidewalk?
        Amazon Sidewalk is a shared network that helps devices work better. Operated by Amazon at no charge to customers, Sidewalk can help simplify new device setup, extend the low-bandwidth working range of devices to help find pets or valuables with Tile trackers, and help devices stay online even if they are outside the range of their home wifi. In the future, Sidewalk will support a range of experiences from using Sidewalk-enabled devices, such as smart security and lighting and diagnostics for appliances and tools.”
        Sounds crazy but at this point who knows.

        Some twenty years ago the raving conspiracy types went on and on about how our phones and devices would listen to us and then serve content back.
        This is now an undeniable fact.

        Government mind control
        Conspiracy: The CIA was testing LSD and other hallucinogenic drugs on Americans in a top-secret experiment on behavior modification.

        The truth: The program was known as MK-ULTRA, and it was real. The CIA started by using volunteers; the novelist Ken Kesey was one notable subject. But the program heads soon began dosing people without their knowledge; MK-ULTRA left many victims permanently mentally disabled. Don’t miss these 11 controversial medical theories that are actually true.

        John Lennon was under government surveillance
        Conspiracy: The FBI was spying on former Beatle John Lennon.

        The truth: Crazy conspiracy theories regarding celebs are always interesting—and this one is most certainly true. Like many counter-culture heroes, Lennon was considered a threat: “Anti-war songs, like “Give Peace a Chance” didn’t exactly endear former Beatle John Lennon to the Nixon administration,” NPR reported in 2010. “In 1971, the FBI put Lennon under surveillance, and the Immigration and Naturalization Service tried to deport him a year later.” Lennon is one of 13 more notable celebrities you didn’t realize were watched by the FBI.

        The government is spying on you
        Conspiracy: With the advances in technology, the government is using its vast resources to track citizens.

        The truth: In 2016, government agencies sent 49,868 requests for user data to Facebook, 27,850 to Google, and 9,076 to Apple, according to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (the EFF), a major nonprofit organization that defends civil liberties in the digital world and advises the public on matters of internet privacy. You’ve probably also heard that your computer camera could be used to spy on you—here’s the real likelihood someone is watching you through that camera.

      I listened to a Lee Merritt interview a couple of years ago where she mentioned that flu (whatever it is/was) used not to be seasonal. There would be a bad flu ‘season’, then nothing for a number of years, then it would come around again. I think she said that flu became seasonal with the advent of telecommunications infrastructure.

      I’m having to keep an open mind on all sorts of theories of infection. We just got back from a week on the west coast, during which I had a very sore throat for several days, but no other symptoms – not even a cough – and I felt perfectly well, except for the minor agony when swallowing.

      On our return, my husband got the same but with bells and whistles – terrible throat, cough, feeling ill, in bed for several days. We are both assuming he got whatever I had from me and I’m additionally assuming my immune system must be in better nick than his! I’ll have to call it germ-ain theory …

    Did they not learn from the first failure?
    Is Gavin horrible?
    Yes, but at the moment the wheels of power have been trapped and until something is done about the voting situation nothing is going to change.

    A recall attempt against Governor Gavin Newsom was defeated back in 2021, but his detractors are not giving up just yet.

    “Governor Newsom has abandoned the state to advance his presidential ambitions, leaving behind a $68 billion budget deficit and a public safety, immigration, and education crisis,” Rescue California said.

    A notice of intent to recall was served to the governor on Monday morning. Rescue California, a conservative activist group, was the organization behind the initiative.

    However, on Monday, Newsom did not seem very concerned and utilized the occasion to raise money for his campaign. Since he entered office in 2019, critics who are tired of California policies that “favor criminals,” among other issues, have tried to recall him six other times. Out of them, five were not eligible to be on the ballot. The one that did result in a recall election occurred on September 14th, 2021, yet, it was rejected by the state’s overwhelming Democrat majority at 62% to 38%.

    “Earlier today, the same Trump Republicans who led the recall effort against me in 2021 announced they are launching another recall campaign against me this year,” Newsom said on Monday, referencing 2024 presidential front-runner Donald Trump. “We beat them once—handily—and we’ll do it again if we must. But I can’t do it alone.”

    Recall campaigns for governors are not uncommon. Jerry Brown, a fellow Democrat and Newsom’s predecessor, had five recall attempts. However, none of them were successful enough to make it to the ballot.

    Democrat Gray Davis was the only recent governor of California to be recalled back in 2003, receiving a 55% vote. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Republican governor and Hollywood star who was elected in his place, withstood seven recall attempts, none of which were allowed to go to vote.

    In order to qualify for the ballot in 2021, supporters of the last Newsom recall need to gather enough signatures, “around 1.5 million,” to match 12% of the total votes cast for governor in the previous election.

    “It’s very difficult—intentionally difficult—to recall the governor,” Larry Gerston said, who is a professor emeritus of politics at San Jose State University. “And it’s very expensive—it’ll cost millions to collect enough signatures.”

    Advocates for the proposed recall campaign list the numerous issues besetting the Golden State on their website, including exorbitant housing costs, rising rates of homelessness despite billions of dollars being spent to combat it, $3 billion in free health care coverage for undocumented immigrants despite a nearly $70 billion budget deficit, and an increase in violent and retail crimes that critics attribute to the governor’s supported criminal justice reforms.

    The manager of the recall campaign, Anne Dunsmore, stated that the initiative would not interfere with Republican contests and that it is primarily driven by volunteers who were involved in the previous Newsom recall that was put to a vote.

    Rather, she claimed, it would compel Newsom to distribute his political funds in order to protect his position. Newsom has been advocating for the Proposition 1 bond initiative for mental health as well as for Democrat candidates in other states. She mentioned that those who were angry with Newsom had signed 2.3 million signatures the previous time around for the campaign.

    “We’re better prepared, we have all the resources we had last time,” Dunsmore said. “It’ll drain more money from their coffers. He’s also spread himself thin—he’s paying for Prop. 1 and campaigning for people in battleground states.”

    In response to harsh criticism directed at the governor over COVID-19 public health regulations that imposed unwanted restrictions on individuals, businesses, and churches, the Newsom recall movement qualified for the 2021 ballot. The governor fueled the recall movement by dining at a posh Napa restaurant with friends shortly after hypocritically advising Californians to stay at home, stay away from social events, and wear masks to protect the virus from spreading.

      It’s not going to work, he’s not going to get recalled. He beat the recall by mentioning Trump. And he said California will be paradise for women that want to have abortions. California is finished, it’s never going to recover as long as he’s still here. And I barely remember how it was with Arnold. I do know he was the one that said “Californians are better off with Newsom.” It’s beyond me how he keeps beating recalls when he’s garbage and doesn’t even care about the State no more than Nancy Pelosi cared for SF. That’s why she ran off to Florida and bought a house there.

      Plus all these homeless people here aren’t even from CA, most of them came here from other States because of the weather here. It only got worse with all the illegals here now, and the cost of living was only cheap in the 1990s, but when you have all these illegals and people getting gov aid. There’s not enough to go around, the illegals get gov aid before anyone else do, and they don’t even have to have any problems to get it either. Simply being here you can get gov help and that applies to illegals.

      That’s why when I wanted to move back to the apartment complex I use to live in. I had to go on a damn waiting list and the waiting list was so long I never got a call back because all the fucking illegals and even the legals took all the places, and across the street from those apartments is another apartment complex where 98% of the Residence are Hmong, and they never leave. Some of them been there since the 1990s.

            Well, you are forgetting one major point, in all the wars between the Arabs and the Israelis except maybe one, the aggressors have always been the Arabs. Starting in 1948, when the Jews took their land and left the Arabs to theirs, that was not good enough, so they attacked the UN allocated Israel. And got whipped. So many wars, so many attacks by the Arabs, so many whippings by the Israelis. Only one was orchestrated by the US and UK to try to stabilize the Suez Canal. That Israel may have started. They have been attacked by Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, and Iran and whipped all of them.

            You all remind me of Yankee haters, you hate the proverbial winner.

            Are the Israelis arrogant, you bet they are, like Mohammed Ali. If you can back up your words, so be it.

            Walk a mile in their mocassins! If your neighborhoods were invaded over and over, you might want to kick ass when attacked also.

            Heckler, I let left out. Pro-Israel. But actually, anti-Muslim terrorist. If the Arabs in 1948 had just moved into their zone and developed it like the Jews did theirs, we would not even be discussing this today.

            The forces against the Israelis have been war-like for a long long time. Like the Indians of America, fighting amongst themselves until a common foe shows up. Both lost.

            Ben,

            There are thousands of videos on social media showing wanton slaughter of Palestinian families, razing of entire civilian areas, and IDF soldiers taking sick pleasure in murder.

            The conflict needs to be worked out at the political level, but Netan. and co. are using what was a rather small incident in the grand scheme of things to ethnically cleanse a massive tract of land in order to simply take it, which is what the Zionists have wanted from the beginning.

            There is no justification for what they are doing; this is Holocaust 2.0, and no amount of wordplay will change it.

          • benr February 28, 2024 at 8:30 am #

            @NO

            How many attacks did the Israeli people absorb before a response?
            How many people were staged around the area to film any response?
            How many crisis actors were on scene to make it look worse.

            Palestinians have elected people who do not want peace nor a two-state solution they want it all.

            They indoctrinate their children to hate Jews not unlike the rest of the Arab world and it would appear a fair amount of the western world as well.

            There are how many Jewish countries?
            One

            There are how many Muslim countries?
            49

            Nor pro- Israel but I am also not anti-Israel.
            I am however very anti- Palestinian.

            I disagree with some of what you wrote there, but none of that really matters. What matters is that an entire ethnic group of people are being wiped out and it is happening in plain sight.

            Whatever one thinks of Hamas, or the Palestinian situation, nothing justifies the mass slaughter going on right now.

            Most of it captured on video. It’s pretty mind-boggling, TBH.

            I have never seen anything so disgusting in my time on earth, aside from the even larger mass murder carried out by his globalist friends in conjunction with the Great Reset.

            Of course, Netanyahu was involved in that, too, instituting mandates, passports, etc., making Israel one of the most repressive and fascistic states on the planet for its own people.

    Look, I know I’ve been vociferously pro-lsrael and rabidly anti-anti-Semitic. There’s bad Jews, but there’s also many bad non-Jews. What I don’t understand is why pick on just Jews? I’ve never said Jews are perfect. But neither is any group. After all, we’re only human.

    As for Israel, they’ve always had an attitude. An arrogant attitude isn’t a reason to hate them. Not liking them is fine, but being viciously against a group with a certain personality trait is uncalled for. Even I sometimes get turned off by that attitude, but I don’t think it’s ultimately important.

    The only thing that would turn me off from Israel is if OG was right about 10/7- that it was all an Israeli government set-up. I like OG, but he believes a lot of current events aren’t what they seem. Maybe he’s correct, but until I see proof rather than logic, I’ll pass on it being an Israeli government operation. But I’m open to anything.

      The propaganda machine has really cranked up against Jews and Israel in the last few months.

      Some airman burned himself alive over the subject.
      Wait a minute, he belongs to the imperial war machine that has killed over 22,000,000 humans since WW2, and is now bombing Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and (covertly) Russia, but it is Israel he freaks out over?

      The US is occupying 30% of Syria, and is stealing their oil and wheat, while Syrians go hungry, but it is Israel that is the worst human rights abuser? The US participated in the blockade on Yemen that starved untold children to death, and announced that the deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children in the 90s was “worth it”, but that’s A-OK with him? I see him as a victim of the anti-Israel 2 minutes of Hate that has been unleashed. (24/7) He got carried away with it.

      I don’t know if they are ramping up the propaganda to get rid of Israel, or just Netanyahu. I guess we’ll see.

      • Jarek February 27, 2024 at 1:59 pm #

        Serious people don’t distinguish between Israel and the United States in these matters. Certainly the Syrians don’t. They know that our foreign policy is under the control of dual American/Israeli citizens with non dual loyalty.

    For the second day in a row, the propaganda bellwether is pushing a Muslim Democrat initiative to write in “uncommitted” on their D primary ballots.
    I think this may be the way they get rid of Biden without getting stuck with Harris. They will really, really push this, and if they have to, they will stuff the ballot boxes, or flip the computers to make it look like Dems have rebelled against Biden.

    “We’re just following the will of our voters” they will say, (ignoring the primaries stolen from Bernie Sanders in 2016 and 2020, when they went to court and filed statements saying that they are a corporation that has no responsibility to the voters.)

    Nope, they will show a sudden deep concern for their voters. Except for the part where they put in Gavin Newsome, instead.

      Newsom isn’t going to get elected. I highly doubt they will choose him. Unfortunately for me I’m starting to not care anymore who gets elected. It’s one thing if the United States had people who cared about the country but you have some like Trump that partially care but not nearly enough. And even if he does get elected, he can still be prevented from doing much because of the Supreme court.

      • Paula D February 28, 2024 at 11:58 am #

        I agree. I think they have chosen Nikki Haley to put into the White House.

        I’m just speculating that they will replace Biden with Newsom.

        It seems clear that the majority of Americans think like we do, that it doesn’t matter who is elected.
        They all just obey their owners.

        But they like to keep Americans all hyped up over the elections, and this year nobody seems to give a damn.

    It is interesting to note, from a religious perspective that March 25 this year there will be a total lunar eclipse, and April 8th I believe, a solar eclipse.

    For Catholics these are significant dates, march 25th being the Annunciation, of the conception of Christ in the ever Virgin Mary, and April 8th, Divine Mercy Sunday, the last hope of absolute remission of all sin, from the living and the dead, (who we intercede for in prayer to God, thus shortening their purification).

    The moon symbolizes bv Mary, the sun, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

    The sun, the sun, oh glorious sun,
    Who heats the earth and hearts hearth run
    Leave us not in your shadow
    Burn us not our poison mallow.

    If we refrain and beg forgiveness
    Burn us not forever furnace.

    The moon, the moon
    Our night light light sole
    Oh Lady of the perfect row
    Despise not our need for your glow
    To lead us through this darkness.

    Oh perfect soul
    Oh Virgin pure
    Please pray to God
    That we endure.

    Add Ukraine to that, and maybe even the new Israel-Palestine war and we need an extra release valve and storage-tank…

    Oh where to find it…

      Europe and America both are finished….Neither one of these nations have tried to get rid of the migrant invasions, not a single fucking country has even remotely tried. They don’t even give a shit anymore at this point. The only country I can think of that said they would deport a lot of people was Ecuador and that’s because of they are dealing with a serious new crime wave that happened a month or two ago when a notorious cartel leader escaped.

      Then a news station was attacked. They were terrorist because they had explosives with them and some of them were even set off around the city in public places. Then they had to declare martial law and said they were departing a whole lot of people from El Salvador. I’m not sure if I’m correct its been awhile since I looked into that story.

      But Europe and America is just allowing all these people to flood in. We have about 300,000,000 citizens in America and half is living below the poverty line. Now just add all these goddamn illegals coming in on top of that. It makes me sick, I wish just for once I could live in a country where the government isn’t full of corrupt BS. So far Hungary is probably the only sensible nation in Europe that’s not intentionally trying to culturally suicide itself.

      • MrMangoOnMyShoulder February 28, 2024 at 11:07 am #

        I’m glad you mentioned Hungary. They’re like the Idaho of Europe. That said, they are about 2% of the nearly 450B people in the EU. They will fight hard, but will eventually be steamrolled into compliance. (unless the EU is destroyed in WWIII…which it would be, easily)

        I’m saddened and frustrated by the expectation that every country must change themselves into something else other than what they have been. “Diversity”, in practice today, actually means “the lack of diversity”. Everyone must eventually be the same. Which is…impossible…and stupid. I meet dozens of folks every day who are clearly not my equal, and I presume meet dozens of folks every day who know that I am probably not their equal. Goes both ways. Humans are smart, dumb, held back, left behind, advantaged, staunch, retarded, depraved, hopeless, pacifist, violent, community-oriented, evil, devout, optimistic…everything. If everyone is considered the same and treated as such, we will become WALL-E pods.

        Hungary says fuck off. For now. But they’re small potatoes and will be relegated to the dustbin of history eventually.

        Perhaps I’m wrong. Sure feels like we have no power through logic or history. Twain would puke, as liberal as he was for his time,.

      Too many damn countries have joined up with Nato…and even though the UK left. I heard they are STILL having a crises up there…. So even electing far right leaders isn’t solving the problem. You might as well keep the fucking liberal Governments if the far right governments are going to commit the same treasonous bullshit act like parading around pretending to care about their own country. That’s how Italy got fucked.

      • The Man They Call Zazelle February 27, 2024 at 11:33 pm #

        Apparently, many governments are already bankrupt and that it’s not a question of if but when collapse really digs in for the long haul. There’s likely no going back.

        You have people, upthread– God bless their little hearts– coming up with ideas of how government is going to get rid of millions of immigrants, who often already have their own support networks– essentially their own little ‘countries’– anyway, in one of the largest countries like the US when, as Anthea suggests, governments are broke and can hardly pick up the trash, at least the city ones. I’ve already read some years ago about the US’ slowly decaying civil infrastructure, so it’s not just city/local governments.

        The ‘solution’ would seem to be to bail/jump from this runaway train, ideally when it crosses a body of water, before it derails entirely.

        Ironically, many immigrants may already be better situated and suited for what’s to come.

        IOW, cutting off immigrants’ government social benefits might be a bit like the effect for Russia of sanctions against it; a nothing burger or better than no sanctions.

          Someone is financing and marketing the redistribution of people from around the world into Europe and America. There is no way that a group of destitute people from many different countries could put together what is happening without significant support.

          So why haven’t we tried to cut off this funding, heck, even identify where it is coming from?

          Hypothesis. It is being financed by the WEF, or even the BRICS++ group or maybe both to try to break down the West. Why hasn’t the Deep State done anything? They are part of it, the illicit trades pay their bills and the Left wants the United States supremacy destroyed.

          Totally intentional and now they are not even trying to hide it.

          IF Trump uses the Red zones to fight back against these Liberal SOBs, we might see a decrease in the degradation of the West.

            Political Draculas & Zombies, AKA, Parasites

            Your hypothesis seems to make sense…

            As we’ve noticed, there seem to very strong/concerted efforts by TPTB to divide and conquer people at every fissure point they can think of, like with sex, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity/’race’…

            …and immigration (native resident/new arrival).

            At the same time, there’s also the point that corporations, organizations and governments are often, if not usually, parasitic on the human populations. They are parasites, not leaders as such. So they don’t really know how to lead, fundamentally at least. They only know how to create jobs jobs jobs to then suck/skim the taxes/labor juices from them, and divide/conquer/disorient/confuse people so they are less willing or able to organize significant fronts against their parasites.

            Immigration falls neatly into that sort of thing, do you think?

            We think so.

            Over here in Halifax, NS, Canada, we have both homeless natives– so-called ‘whites’ if you will– in encampments of tents and lone tents alongside newly-arrived people apparently from India and/or thereabouts, all working hard in retail and wherenot, all presumably paying their taxes and labor-skims, all quite visible and nary one seen so far at least in any kind of tent/tent encampment.

            When the parasites as politicians keep talking about jobs as their main talking-points, it’s probably because they need juice.

            When they can’t seem to function as leaders some of us imagine them to be, it’s because they are parasites, not leaders.

          Since you are focused on economics or the science of the kitchen: Think of a nation as an entity of collective bargaining – a union! And the immigrants as scabs brought in by the owners and enabled by the police and Pinkerton goons.

          One baboon by itself is weak, but the pack or union can drive away or kill leopards and hyenas.

          The Culture Hero, Cincinatus, held up one stick and broke it. Then he tied together a bundle and tried to break it – but could not! Thus the fasces or bundle of sticks is the symbol of Fascism. It’s nice to obey Mother Nature. And the group or entity of collective “bargaining” is what She intended for us.

            But in your example, it’s a decontextualization, because America doesn’t currently run like that– collective bargaining, etc..

      Sounds like more weak excuses to me “They are broke” if America was so broke how are people still able to afford paying their rent? And purchasing food? When someone says broke, to me broke is being unable to afford anything at all. And here in Sacramento we still have an active law enforcement. Their police vehicles are brand new, the damn things almost look like sport cars compared to cop cars in the 1990s. The fact is once there is a full collapse the same conditions that destroyed venezuela is going to destroy us too…The moment people start eating their own pets or eating the neighbors dog will be theday I say America has truly lost it….

        TS the police are well funded. In this town of 25,000, with a 55 man department, the Lieutenants, Captains & the Chief are in the $225,000-$250,000 range, and patrolmen with a few years in routinely pull down $150,000. It’s all public record. I have to say it’s a professional, well run force. Not every town or city have the resources we do, I understand that. Governments on all levels seem to have plenty of cash to do whatever they want to do. I can see the day when all business & industry lie in ruins, the landscape is a smoking wasteland; meanwhile, the local Public Safety Center, High School & Town Hall are gleaming palaces.

          When I started in public service at the end of the 70’s I took a big cut in pay moving from my factory job into the FF. We had early 60’s engines, a ’57 ladder truck and two power wagon hand me down brush trucks from the Korean War. Most of the guys were working on the side and were driving beaters. Fast forward to today. Same total number of personnel as 1980 but twice as many officers. A $1.75 million platform truck and 5 fairly new engines. The brush trucks are $150K loaded Chevy K4500’s.The privates all make over 100K and you can’t even get them to work OT because they don’t need the money. Parking lot is full of new cars and trucks. Money is no object. Our Mayor is in a conundrum. He’s trying to figure out how to spend the rest of the 20 million the Feds gave him for the ‘vid. We’re also building a huge new elementary school for 120 million where everyone will be bussed and closing 3 older local schools where most students walked. My property taxes went up another 10% this year. This bubble has to pop soon.

          • stelmosfire February 28, 2024 at 9:04 am #

            I didn’t mention. We’re also planning a new police station for $50 million. I suggested to my councilman/neighbor that perhaps we could repurpose one of the closing elementary schools for the station. Plenty of land and square footage. Haha, what are you kidding? that would only cost 10-15 million. We’re converting it into low income housing instead. How silly of me for even suggesting it. It’s all funny money anyway.

            Yeah, think about it.

            Bidenland is bragging on the inflated economy we have today. Economic law says that pushing the employment envelope will eventually blow us up inflation wise. Infrastructure is the key right now, build, build, build. Build things that are not necessary, give money away for jobs that do not deserve it.

            How come? So that the increased population have resources they need, yeah all those immigrants.

            I actually read an article from the WaPo stating that the glorious economy is the result of increased immigration.

            Never mentioned is the fiat money that is financing this double debacle.

            The monster inflation is coming, worse than last year. Those who believe that monster inflation will be used to obsolete the debt may be right. I am waiting for the Deep State to stop the Fed from increasing rates to offset their chicanery.

            BTW, we are still inflating at 3+% and increasing. Absolutely no deflation in the forecast. Wages are stagnating, interest on the national debt is about to pass military spending annually, things are about to get interesting. Son of a gun, it is an election year.

            Reading this makes me think of those Chinese ghost cities and what has happened to them since. The other thing I think of is reading some time go how civilizations, more their governments perhaps, were building unusually big/glamorous things just before collapse. Something like that. While I’m on about that, apparently elite in-fighting is also supposed to ramp up just before collapse. Maybe when the rest of the population has been wrung dry.

          The truth is there are some places here that really are BROKE and vulnerable. Chicago comes to mind, as do places like Detroit, Oakland, etc. If you went to any of those cities you’ll notice the decay immediately. Detroit have buildings with trees literately growing out of them… It’s like I am Legend down there..And Chicago you can’t walk anywhere without hearing gun shots being fired, and law enforcement will rarely come around it’s like the damn wild west except even the Wild West still had some enforcement around.

          In Chicago it’s practically everyone for him and herself you get caught down there. And it’s a real shame because a lot of these cities use to be great. But they’ve been broke, crime ridden, and piss poor third world for decades…. THere’s a neighborhood here that looks like that, it’s called MarysVille and it’s been in ghetto ruins ever since the 1990s, and still looks like that.

          The point of them being here isn’t to integrate them in the first place. If that was the case they wouldn’t even have them here. The purpose is to have a stupid ass class of ignorant fucking people that are so clueless as to what’s going on that it will be easier to manipulate them, rule over them, and control them.

          You don’t integrate a bunch of people who will eventually turn on you the way your citizens are doing out of anger and frustration. You replace them with an ignorant class that wouldn’t know how to fight back. Besides, even if they did try to integrate them, I still don’t want them here. I don’t want to live a country that doesn’t feel like the United States anymore, and having all these Latinos here mixed in with the blacks is just going to make the U.S. within several years resemble and look a lot like Brazil.

            Yes! Kick off the blades and get a good pair of tennis shoes. Ball hockey’s the best but, alas, it’s a young man’s game. There are no 60+ ball hockey teams. Skating’s tiring enough. In ball hockey, you run like basketball.

            With everything melting, including the puck, I’m worried that rollerblades will only go so far too, then, such as if the wheels melt and even the asphalt. Asphalt does get soft and kind of melty of course. What the hell are we talking about anyway?

      @SteveK9

      I always thought it was Neocons who were the ones lusting for another major war, not the Democrats. Unless Neocons are also part of them as well. Regardless I pray a third World War never happens…. Honestly am so sick and tired of these goddamn people. I enjoy coming around to read the articles and every now and then I’ll contribute in the comment sections while trying to keep my anger and intense level of rage under control. But at times it’s just so damn hard to do and even easier to just lash out when I feel threaten or challenged in some way.

      Point being, if another World War does happen let it happen when we’re all dead and won’t be around to see it. Because they’ll start such a war but none of these war mongering assholes will fight that war themselves. They’ll just get everyone else killed in the process of trying to make money. A third World War would easily rival and out do the second one. No one should want another war like that ever again. Abolishing all wars would be better, but we know this isn’t going to happen until half a billion of us are dead caused by their reckless bullshit.

      Of all the images and videos I’ve seen of Oakland I’ve never once seen an oak. Are there actually oaks in Oakland, or is it more like a Pebble Beach Circle in Palm Desert?

      • Jarek February 28, 2024 at 1:43 pm #

        The area is lush. It’s not southern California, which itself has some lush areas near the coast.

        Evidence of heavy fighting has been found in and near the Oak Groves of ancient California. Acorns are a very good source of protein and thus the groves are worth defending. Territory. Some here don’t believe that hunter gatherers had any sense of territory and/or didn’t engage in warfare. They are wrong.

        • SoftStarLight February 28, 2024 at 2:07 pm #

          Wow that is very interesting. I wonder if there were clashes between the ancient Indians and the tall giants whose remains exist on Catalina Island. Allegedly the giants roamed the whole west coast at one time.

          It’s cray cray to think people have that disconnect in their minds. If anything hunter gatherers were far more territorial than we can even fathom nowadays as they were completely tethered to the land and had specific “haunts” for each season and microseason. And I’m sure strange people foraging and hunting in their areas wouldn’t be tolerated because it would threaten the survivability of the band.

            Northern California is not lush. It is a Mediterranean climate, like southern California.

            The oaks are coastal live oaks. They are also called scrub oaks, because they don’t grow as tall as the oaks back east.

            On the coast redwoods used to grow and that could be called lush, because of the ferns that grow in the shade. But Oakland is not on the coast, it’s on the bay.

            There are still hunter gatherers around, mostly in jungle areas of the world, like the Amazon, the Congo, India, and Papau New Guinea.

            The Sentinelese don’t like intruders, that is for sure.

          Guerrilla Agriculture

          Territories, like diets, can be vast, diverse and overlapped with other territories and require patterns of seasonal migrations and don’t necessarily require warfare.

          They are not necessarily WEF or Gates Foundation-sponsored industrial monocultural tracts or food labs that one hangs out at and guards 24/7.

          Warfare, incidentally, if carried on to a certain extent, would seem to run counter to survival, would seem inefficient to a point, such as if we consider energy expenditures and potential for injuries.

          “The Eden that Europeans described when they reached North America was not a wilderness, but a well-managed resource, a complex combination of nature and culture, ecology and economy, a system so subtle and effective that it eluded the settlers who saw only natural wealth free for the taking. The result of this land grab in North America is that only 2% of the land is now wild, its major rivers are polluted, its lakes have caught fire, and its forests are dying from the top down. The tragedy of this commons was that it never really was a commons after colonization, but was surrendered to plunder, privatization, and exploitation in the name of Manifest Destiny and progress.” ~ Joline Blais

            Eh, lighten up, Joline.

            It’s a big country.

            33% of the US is forested as of 2024. Dry regions and mountains take up a good chunk of the geographical pie after that.

            Okay, only 2% is “designated” as protected wilderness (in the lower 48…Alaska adds another 3%)…that doesn’t mean we’ve used up 98% (or even 95%) of the land. Probably not even close to half…and there are a lot of Dollar Stores, Walmarts, Chuck E. Cheeses, parking lots, and Cenex stations out there and it still doesn’t really make much of a dent in the overall.

            What “argument” does Blais (through you) have? It’s a lot of podium-style claptrap. Empty rhetoric. People used to demand proof for their assertions. These days, an opinion doesn’t need reinforcement if it’s just aping what the crowd desires to be true vs what is actually true.

            My own “argument” on the matter falls on your deaf ears because you’re historically illiterate. I gave you a clue with Rolvaag’s serious, detailed historical novel, but you’re much too enamoured of wiki sound bytes and partisan know-nothing quotes-without-context to read it, or anything similar to it.

            In short, the reality is that early settlers didn’t fall into a ready-made functioning society, they earned their keep by putting down roots in an often arid, unwelcoming frontier, unwelcoming in its geography, weather, and lack of human and resource support.

        Saint,

        West Point AND Special Forces? My God. My respect for our institutions has gone down another notch or two.

        Vaguely part of the storyline;

        One night while on patrol in Special Duty, the report came out regarding a group of armed burglary suspects (all white, believe it or not) who were holed up in a house in East Oakland, and it was reported that they were not only armed and dangerous, but that they stated they would never be taken alive. The group was seen getting into a econo-like van, and were on the move. We were close, and in an unmarked vehicle. We turned onto a side street and observed the van heading towards us…this was about 11:00pm, more or less. When the van closed on our position, we swerved in front of them, stopping the van. My partner, weapon drawn, approached the driver side of the van and ordered the driver to keep his hands on the steering wheel…he dropped his hands and my partner shot him in the head. I had bailed from the driver position of our vehicle and was covering the van weapon drawn…even as my partner shot the driver, I saw no other threats and just kept the vehicle covered. Other units soon arrived and all were taken into custody. The driver survived.

        I didn’t get into a Service Academy (even though I tried), and was never a warrior/recondo…but shooting without a threat observable Just. Was. Not. Done.

        Who the hell knows?

          Not uncommon. Cop will yell hands up while shooting the suspect at the same time. Just like the poor, would be Somali Warlord, such guys don’t have the instincts to be a legitimate officer. They’re just too scared.

    A week ago MA posted that Larry Fink was promoting that Bitcoin was going to go to $60,000+.

    Armstrong stated that it would be unconstitutional for Bitcoin to replace the US$, but went on to speculate that like “the censoring of free speech that the First Amendment ONLY restricts the government – not Facebook, YouTube, et al.”, Fink’s ETF may ultimately “push the industry in the wrong direction into the ultimate way the government can trace everything you do and ensure they tax everything.”.

    • TPTB-USA February 28, 2024 at 2:35 pm #

      In the article, Armstrong also touched on the idea that “If Bitcoin replaced the dollar, the country would collapse, the debt would be unpayable or serviced, and private assets would decline, including gold.”.

      My sense is that if Bitcoin were to become an escape vehicle, the movement could feed on itself, and “that you are really talking about the collapse of the entire government, its debt, and the political system that would most likely fuel the divorce between the Blue & Red States.”.

      This has the potential to render all the “noise” insignificant.

        Classical Skills & Knowledge Trade

        Roughly 10 years ago, I had a suspicion that cryptocurrency was not an individual’s creation, but a government’s. So I did a little online search about that and discovered that I was not the only one with the suspicion and, for example, read a piece explaining why. The piece suggested the possibility of Russia or the US. I mentioned this over at Peak Oil Barrel.

        Unsure precisely how cryptocurrency actually works, but if the internet goes down, unsure if the currency remains viable/valid. Over the years, there have been stories about people’s wallets wiped clean. Banks can do that too of course, but in any case cash-on-hand or under the proverbial mattress seems quite different and more secure.

        Perhaps especially in emergency and collapse scenarios, some fundamental or traditional forms of knowledge and skills are also forms of currency that may never go obsolete or be easy to steal or be required to stockpile/hoard.

        “Only after the last tree has been cut down,
        only after the last river has been poisoned,

          Assuming that Armstrong’s assessment of the evolution and bastardization of the Federal Reserve is correct, I envision that the Fed will not be able to deal with the volatility associated with a Bitcoin death star (that is my assessment of the logic behind his conclusion).

          But, my thinking is that Larry Fink is in the camp that would like to destroy the existing format for life, and I suspect that BlackRock is positioned to be a primary beneficiary of The Great Reset/2030 Agenda.

            We appear to be at a critical juncture for our global-industrial civilization and so it would seem to stand to reason that many actors around the world, from so-called elites to the ‘average Joes and Janes’ will be attempting various forms of control more or less all at once, both over their own lives as well as over the lives and apparati of their outfits/organizations/groups/etc..

            As this sort of thing ramps up, it also stands to reason that more and more entities will be entering the fray, thereby making things even more chaotic, unpredictable and inexplicable than things are even now.

            So if we were at a bar now, that’s what I’d say. Then I’d sort of shrug and then take a sip of my drink and maybe momentarily look away from you and out the window.

            Presumably, the reason covid19 worked so well as a global choreograph was because it was a common enemy or at least concern. At the moment, however, that’s not there anymore. So there’s little in the way of choreographing collapse. Little in the way of controlling demolition.

            Even if the so-called elites are more choreographed than I realize, they still won’t have the choreograph of many others.

            So after the sophisticated lockstep marching dance of covid19, we now have increasingly a fragmentation into more free-form dances under the multicoloured gyrating and pulsing lights and driving IDM/Trance/D&B of a hardcore big-city urban nightclub… Do they still exist?

    Just a reminder. We visited Loch Lomond and Inverness during our cruise last fall. I got a cold then a horrific cough in Inverness, and my wife a month later. Cough like never before. Mucus pouring out of my throat. The cough lasted five months. My wife had it for about three months.

    She got tested for Pertussis and was positive. I assumed as we were having the same symptoms that it was my gift from Loch Lomond,

    Anyway, Pertussis evolves through three phases.

    One. Symptoms of a cold that evolves into

    Two. The persistent cough that finally starts

    Three. A slow monthly recovery.

    The other name for Pertussis is Whooping Cough or the 100 day cough which are both apropos.

    The infection with me went up into my ears, my TMJs and jaws. Pain in all locations, It has been 6 months and I still have vestiges in my head.

    My wife skipped the latter problems.

    As I have heard that Scotland has had an outbreaks of Pertussis, just thought I would review this with you.

    BTW, two Z packs, Bactrim both just bounced off but Amoxicillin whacked it pretty good.

    RT, Rachel Marsden

    Thanks to Nuland’s nuking of any plausible deniability on Ukrainian “aid” not going to Washington, it’s now clear that Ukrainians continue to die so poor weapons makers don’t end up shaking tin cans on street corners. She has also removed any doubt about the ultimate US goal being Russian regime change, calling Putin’s leadership “not the Russia we wanted,” and sounding like someone who chronically sends back a meal to kitchens of a dining establishment. “We wanted a partner that was going to be Westernizing, that was going to be European. But that’s not what Putin has done,” she told CNN. That’s exactly what Putin has done, actually. It’s the West that’s moved away from itself and is becoming increasingly unrecognizable by its own citizens. Pretty sure that it goes beyond just wanting a country to be “European,” too. Because Germany’s European, and an ally, and Nuland wouldn’t shut up about how much she hated its Nord Stream gas supply — until it mysteriously went kaboom.

    Regime Change Karen saying the quiet part out loud has decimated the Western establishment’s narrative so badly that it’s a miracle no one has yet accused her thermonuclear mouth of being an asset of Russia’s weapons program.

    Jarek: Paula criticizes Cookies Nuland on Ukraine but seems fine with her actions in Palestine. Well, Russia isn’t fine with it. They just told the World Court that Israel is a criminal nation and that all of them need to get out of the West Bank so the Palestinians can have their own state. God bless Russia, the Third Jerusalem.

    Poor Paula. So utterly confused. No vision of her own, utterly dependent on a Leftist party ideology of many decades ago. Russia has moved on to much better things that than failed ideology.

      Well at least Putin isn’t scared to all them the fuck out. But I seen some images of him wearing a small hat, and reading out of a book. Not sure if he was down there in Israel doing this or not but he was surrounded by a lot of Jewish men. I think America is just jealous that it fucked itself over. So jealous they want to drag every other fucking country down with it. Look what they caused all over Europe, if I didn’t know any better I’d say it’s America’s fault why all these shitty European countries are committing cultural suicide.

      America is jealous of the fact that Putin actually love his country while Leftist Democrats fucking hate theirs. If they gave even an ounce of shit about America they wouldn’t be flooding us with illegal assholes, they wouldn’t be acting racist toward white people and trying to erase them from everything. Seriously fuck the people running this country. I know a Russia guy I chat with sometimes, he fled Russia and moved to Mexico because he was afraid that Putin was going to draft him and make him fight. He doesn’t like Putin at all. He’s also quite young and doesn’t seem to really get it. I tried to explain to him several times why Putin even attacked Ukraine because he was upset about it.

      Point is America just want to overthrow Russia so they can fuck over another White country. I’m not even White myself I’m mixed, but even I can see what the U.S. is doing and have done globally is wrong.

        Hopefully it was him tricking them. Apparently the great Oligarchs (all but one were Jewish) thought that he would support them at first.

        The bad news: He’s not pro-White but only pro-Russian – whatever that means. How can you really be pro-Russian without being pro-White? Sounds like he doesn’t know what a Russian is and doesn’t care to know.

        His background is high level Communism, an economic philosophy like Capitalism that doesn’t get to the root of things, Man himself.

      I do hope that none of this leads to a fight between Russia and Israel though. That will give the U.S. the excuse it’s looking for to attack Russia by helping Israel, and we both know that if the U.S. does this…. It’s all over. That’s part of the reason I wish I could have left the United States a long time ago because as long as we allow these no good people to remain at the top, they are going to get us involved in some mess we can’t get out of.

      But there honestly aren’t too many places left to flee to anymore. About 89% of all the European countries belong to Nato now, and a vast majority of them are still letting Muslims and Africans flood in like they just don’t give a shit if these countries become unrecognizable. I can’t go from one backstabbing failed country to another backstabbing country that’s taking a filthy crap all over their own citizens.

      I want to live where the country feels exactly like the place I fled to, not some mixed nation where people are losing their damn identities and sense of self pride because of “Diversity” and all the other stupid liberal bullshit that’s made me not even want to travel the world anymore thanks to America’s far left garbage influence on every other country. About the only countries in the world that still have their identity in tact are nowhere I’d like to live…Asia, Africa, Middle East…

        Sorry I mean countries in Africa, Middle East and Asia.

        Argentina was once a great refuge but then they opened their borders to the Indians and Mestizos from neighboring countries. Now people can’t go out at night. All to make a bit of money. There’s nothing cheap about cheap labor.

        I hear Uruguay is still nice. Chile too, but it was never as White as Argentina once was.

    What Israel is doing is just a harbinger of the future. We will have a more violent world. To be too scandalized is to be naive.

    (Beantownbill saying it would make a big difference if Oct 7 was Mossad-orchestrated sounds naive to me too.)

      @Gustafson.robert.22

      Not really, because the past was just as bad, this isn’t anything new. It’s not like what Israel is doing today never happened before. It has, the only reason it’s going on now is because powerful forces today feel like they can’t be stopped. Especially any nation with nuclear weapons. Those weapons alone has created a GOD like complex among these nations. I think if America didn’t have nukes, they wouldn’t be constantly poking Russia so hard. They know that if Putin were to ever use one, they can flex right back on Russia and you’ll have two idiot nations creating a shitty situation that can’t be reversed and it won’t end until one or both nations are in ruins with everyone dead.

      This is why they also refuse to destroy nuclear weapons. Everyone wants to feel like a threat to someone. They all want to be feared rather than loved. And when people fear you? You can do whatever the hell you want to them.

      Abuse them, steal their property, take their kids away. That’s why the Democrats are acting like pieces of shit. This is also why Jan 6 was such a big deal to the Democrat party. They loved the fact they got to make an example of the very people they hated. And when that one protestor committed suicide because they were viciously interrogating him. They felt no remorse, no sympathy for his hurting family members. I’m willing to bet they felt downright proud of hurting them. They are proud of destroying everything that was once great. They do all of this because they love the pain we’re going through.

      And now they are doing it to Trump because they hate him just as much as they hate us. That’s their way of saying “Fuck all of you! What are you going to do? WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? THAT’S RIGHT NOTHING!” Even with the open border that’s another way of them showing they could care less about how it all ends. We live in an era where everyone is just saying f the people we do what we want, because the people fear us and they’ll always fear us. This whole French Revolution scenario still happens in some parts of the world, but such an act of defiance will never happen in America today.

          “The nations rage. In the Greek Old Testament the idea is that the nations were stirred up, meaning they were shaken or unsettled. Our world is terrified and confused to be honest. Just look around. Kingdoms fall down. Even the most stable of governments or kingdoms can be thrown into a downward spiral pretty quickly. God makes his voice heard and the earth is shaken, the earth melts. The Psalmist doesn’t tell us how God’s actions frighten the nations but somehow, they do. Does God do something directly or does he simply allow this sinful world to go its own way for a bit? We don’t know. But the end result for our world is the same – an unsettled fear. The panic these days is almost palpable.”

    Apropos to today, this is from the Astronomy Picture of the Day:

    Explanation: In 46 BC Julius Caesar reformed the calendar system. Based on advice by astronomer Sosigenes of Alexandria, the Julian calendar included one leap day every four years to account for the fact that an Earth year is slightly more than 365 days long. In modern terms, the time it takes for the planet to orbit the Sun once is 365.24219 mean solar days. So if calendar years contained exactly 365 days they would drift from the Earth’s year by about 1 day every 4 years and eventually July (named for Julius Caesar himself) would occur during the northern hemisphere winter. By adopting a leap year with an extra day every four years, the Julian calendar year would drift much less. In 1582 Pope Gregory XIII provided the further fine-tuning that leap days should not occur in years ending in 00, unless divisible by 400. This Gregorian Calendar system is the one in wide use today. Of course, tidal friction in the Earth-Moon system slows Earth’s rotation and gradually lengthens the day by about 1.4 milliseconds per century. That means that leap days like today will not be necessary, about 4 million years from now. This Roman silver coin, a denarius, depicts Julius Caesar (left) and Venus, Roman goddess of love.
