Daddies in Mommie-land

Welcome to the season of everything losing ground, at least for Western Civ. Sore-beset with idiots and scoundrels running things, the West stumbles backwards into neo-medieval darkness and superstition, hurling garlic bombs of objurgation against the supposedly wicked Putin along the way.

Your “trusted news sources” in our corner of the world will not tell you this, but the mythologized golem of the West’s collective sick mind, The Putin, mounted Operation Z in Ukraine at our country’s foolish behest. It was a twisted variation of the old head-trip Let’s You and Him Fight — described so well in psychologist Eric Berne’s classic book Games People Play. It’s a game instigated generally by women. The West detests the actual Mr. Putin for systemically and doggedly having to correct the mischief that the USA set in motion there in 2014 — putting out a dumpster fire we kept feeding for eight years.

Mainly we hate the Russian president for doing what he said he would do, acting like a man, literally having to set boundaries for the unruly children, like Daddy used to do. America hates daddies. To America, all daddies are monsters (rapists!). That’s why America wants to turn all daddies into mommies. Anyway, we barely remember what daddies used to do. The context for daddies — the family — has been obliterated in America by every agency and institution in the land. The only role available these days is the chimerical creature known as a “baby daddy,” which is as much a baby as a daddy, developmentally speaking. Real daddies are men, which is to say: not babies. Mr. Putin acts like a man, especially having to do a dirty job that needs doing, without complaint. America can’t stand that.

If the USA and its NATO allies actually cared about Ukraine, we would have just left the place alone to slowly settle into the de-industrialized agricultural backwater it was becoming. And if we wanted to prevent widespread devastation once Operation Z got underway, we would have promoted peace talks, with an emphasis on our previous declaration that Ukraine would not be a candidate to join NATO. Instead, we set up Ukraine as a launching pad for annoying Russia (while also using Ukraine as a money laundromat for public officials and arms-makers).

America is a drama queen, like the Queen Bee in one of those Real Housewives shows on cable TV, whose entire purpose in life is creating colorful conflicts within her circle of sisters. Daddy is not needed around that house, except offstage maybe as the wide-receiver for a multi-million-dollar paycheck courtesy of the NFL (a rival entertainment). When one of America’s drama queen stunts goes wrong, the Queen Bee melts into a puddle of tears — boo hoo — tripping the empathy toggle.The sisters cluster around her, beating their wings. Somebody, please, help her feel better… fetch her a glass of pinot grigio or a Xanax!

Drama Queen Bee America does not like how the Ukraine drama is playing out. The mean old Daddy Putin is rocking the joint, cleaning out the place like Gary Cooper in some Long Branch Saloon of the Eurasian steppe — heaving all those Azov Nazis through the swinging doors out into the dusty street. The other sisters in the NATO circle were induced to acting as cheerleaders for the Azov boys, and now Mr. Putin has gone and turned off Europe’s gas. Western Civ is about to be sent to bed without dinner — the ultimate daddy trick. Now the sisters are all going boo hoo. Nothing is working for the sisterhood.

America’s president, “Joe Biden,” suits the current national script perfectly. He’s a mere prop for the drama queens. No one mistakes him for “Daddy.” He’s the old, impotent, intemperate, often confused “Grampy,” a figure of bathos and derision, a shell of a man who, in his prime, lived just to work his official positions for millions in grift. How, otherwise, do you account for his fortune? The Ukraine money laundromat was one of his favorite stops, managed carefully by cheerleaders Victoria Nuland, Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, and NSC official Fiona Hill, America’s foreign policy establishment there back in the day.

But who, exactly, is managing Grampy now backstage in the White House? My guess would be Susan Rice because you never hear anything about Susan Rice or her role there: Director of the Domestic Policy Council of the United States. Wow! Sounds weighty. When was the last time you saw her name in The New York Times or cable TV news? You’d think they’d be interested in her doings. Yet I doubt that one-in-a-hundred US citizens could tell you who Susan Rice is and what she does. (Was that her the other day in a bunny suit at the White House Easter Egg Roll, assisting a confused Grampy offstage?)

Somewhere in the White House there must be phone logs that record how many times a day Ms. Rice makes and receives phone calls across town to and from the Kalorama neighborhood of DC. Does that make Barack Obama America’s secret daddy? Or is he playing a somewhat different role… like, head of a cartel?

    I think Jen Psaki is running things. Because with the Left, everything is OPTICS! No matter how dumb the policy, or how badly it fails, the fault is always – We need better messaging!

    Now that she is going to MSNBC, maybe that gives her an additional edge for MESSAGING!

      I believe Rice is very involved in running Biden and that Obama is running her, but who is running Obama?

        • Unperson37854 April 22, 2022 at 12:24 pm #

          People forget about Ayers and Dhorn, and there’s that other revolutionary chick I always see with them at the BLM rallies who all but gleefully admits out in the open that BLM is a means to an end.

          And Ayers was a proponent of grooming, er, I mean indoctrinating children as early as possible. You don’t need to indoctrinate if you’re ideas are good or sound, but you do need to indoctrinate if your ideas are garbage and a little life experience would expose them as such.

        That is the 64k question…Meanwhile, Ukraine having been the money laundering center of the Universe…it still is…How much of this “aid” that we are supposedly sending do you think ever gets there? How much of it is useless, like Stingers with dead batteries, or never existed at all, except on the Pentagon’s books?
        By sending the useless or nonexistent to the UKR, it can be written off those books, covering up the fraud…great scam!

      After the first few years of disciplined messaging and narrative from the Bush Administration, the Dems really took messaging to heart, passing around George Lakoff’s _Dont Think of an Elephant_ pamphlet. It was all about framing Dems as “nurturing parent” as opposed to ‘Pubs’ “strict father” frame. It’s all very barfworthy to review, considering how shallow, friable, and self-serving their messaging always is.

      Ashamed to admit that I still own a copy.

        Many Americans seem determined to pretend that the Mighty Wurlitzer of propaganda is somehow a neutral institution, something that can be played by anyone with a message. Hence, the book advising better messaging.
        You hear that a lot with people frustrated that the US is wining the propaganda war “Why doesn’t Putin just release information?” as if CNN and NPR would spread it every hour on the ”news” if someone came out with important information.
        The Douma “gas attack” was a primo example of the power of the US over the world’s media.
        The US PR firms and their White Helmet production crew made a film about the gas attack, which starred a telegenic little boy being hosed off by heroic “volunteers”.
        But Russia came into Douma before the terrorists could clean up their traces and they brought the little boy to the Hague to testify about how he had been used, and how there was no gas attack.
        Did the “news” media cover it? Of course not! Russia presented the star of their damn show, and debunked it,and they deemed it unnewsworthy.
        Meanwhile, whistle blowers at the OPCW blew the whistle about how the “report” had been censored and how they had been not allowed to give their assessments.
        Did the Mighty Wurlitzer spread that Truth, because that’s all you need, the Truth?
        Ha!

        • Uncle Bob April 22, 2022 at 7:12 pm #

          Funny how the people who have spent decades telling us there’s no such thing as objective truth are the same ones telling us their version of agitprop is “The Truth,” and anything that disagrees is mere propaganda and falsehood. Why, The One was even trotted out to tell us this in the last day or two to remind us of this “Truth!”

          • Paula D April 23, 2022 at 1:07 pm #

        And stop thinking of your pimp and act for yourself and true community. Leave your pimps behind. That’s right: Let go of daddy/nanny-State.

          • The Man They Call Zazelle April 23, 2022 at 7:05 am #

            Well I just threw that in at the last minute for the hell of it, but you have a valid point of course, and appreciate it.

            If you do a lookup for ‘Caelan MacIntyre’ (me), ‘Introducing Permaea’ and ‘Permaculture Global’ (the site), and then do a page-Find for ‘money’, you’ll find it referred to a few times.

            7 years or so later, I’m unsure money, given its symbolic nature for one, would necessarily work and I might be leaning toward something of a gift and/or barter economy.

            What do you think?

            And is an ethical, unpegged currency viable?

            If the State is printing its money, what happens if it becomes no good in an alternative society, like Monopoly money?

            What happens at certain points in time to the erosions of certain levels of trust in a system?

            Perhaps you would like to pore through my 7+ year-old essay there (And/Or write your own and let us read it.) and let me know how you would change it and I would consider the changes and credit you. Otherwise, I might get a book done, not that that is necessarily an easy inclination. (I have been trying.)

            The issue is essentially about making changes that work for both people and planet, the living creatures on it.

    • Penelope Dreadful April 22, 2022 at 2:25 pm #

      OH, BTW my TOP-SEKRIT book just came in about an hour ago, that book I did not want to name last week because I found a $10 copy of it, and everywhere else it is a lot more expensive. And I did not want the mailperson to get waylaid, SO – from 1972:

      It is (drumroll…) Triage, by Leonard C. Lewin! The Most Shocking and Prophetic Fiction Experience since 1984!

      Here is the blurb off the back cover:

      A plan for government-approved murder for social benefit had already been scheduled by the President.

      It called for the latest technique in liquidation: controlled wars, psychological self-destruction, and selective termination of the aged, the infirm, the unstable and the unfit.

      The first phase began with a unique method of extermination for hard-core drug addicts.

      And only God knew where the second phase would end. . . .

      ==================
      I have not read any of the book yet, but already I am thinking Fentanyl and COVID and puberty blockers, OH MY! fentanyl, COVID and puberty blockers – ohhh those poppies are sooo pretty. . .

        Putins first responsibility is protecting the safety of Russians from enemys. How hard is it to recognize NATO as an enemy of Russia?

            Putin is acting as a head of state should act by putting his own country’s interest first but he’s consistently presented as a blood thirsty psycho (think: Dick Cheney’s spawn or Liz Cheney. with hair loss) rather than a man who wants no enemies perched on his border. I don’t think as many people would be cheerleading for this war if any of the history of this conflict was honest.

        • C.O.Jones April 22, 2022 at 11:53 am #

          The Russian nukes in Cuba were a response to US nukes in Turkey. Khrushchev told Kennedy to move the nukes from Russia’s front porch and Kennedy said no. Khrushchev’s response was to place nukes in Cuba thereby creating the Cuban Missile Crisis famed in song and movie.

          Fast forward.

          Ukraine is getting ready to join NATO and place US nukes on Russia’s front porch. Putin says no way. Putin stands on the table shouting he cannot allow the safety of the Russian people to be endangered. “Joe Biden” dares him to do something about it. Putin takes the dare.

          Khrushchev backed down. Vladimir Putin did not.

            “Joe Biden” is a pussy who continues to act like a tough guy – only a front for the cabal of pussies behind him – acting like tough guys (and girls).

            Putin is a real man, a leader, looking out for the interests of his people (and admittedly himself & the Russian elite) – and he ain’t having any of it.

            News flash:

            C.O.

            In a midnight coup, the province of Quebec deposed their detested boy leader Turdeau and declared their independence. . The new leadership was hand picked and vetted by Vladimir Putin, and duly sworn in overnight.I

            In other news, Russia announced that it is gifting a full S400 missile defense system along with Russian technicians to train their Quebec counterparts in its use. These events caused incredible amounts of consternation among the Decision Makers in the US, inciting a wave of mass suicides, among them Susan Rice.

            What are you going to do about it, Uncle Sam? Consult with Joe Bedpan?

            The Man They Call Zazelle, Biden, Putin and other heads of state are leaders. Like it or not, there is a hierarchy to everything: business, government, families, whatever. Bad leadership results in catastrophe, while good leadership generally results in success. Acting as a lone wolf just gets you killed, no matter how much of a badass you think you are.

            Uncle Bob, smarten up.

            And don’t expect everyone to swallow your ostensible and relative mischaracterizations, decontextualizations and/or misguided notions of so-called leadership– whatever that actually means to you.

            There are whopping differences between family, tribal and village leadership versus large-scale State so-called leadership. Putting all of them in the same bag is disingenuous to put it one way.

            You likely don’t personally know Putin or Biden and you cannot exactly walk on over to their mud huts and poke them in the eyes if they pass one by on you either.

            They are flat/cartoon characters framed on flat screens for your consumption, ‘leading’ you and the sheeple by ‘remote-control’.

            No one is suggesting acting as a ‘lone wolf’– I’m one of the last who would– and this passage of yours (which echoes the State-influenced/controlled media Unabomberesque trope tripe) only helps in a kind of chilling effect– yet again in favour of the State, of upholding it/propping it up, to everyone’s detriment, including Mother Earth’s.

            Despite your garbage here, people can act together and simply transcend the State. It doesn’t have to be fought, just abandoned. Parallel networks and all that.

            The State abandoned people long ago. People, say, a la Dunbar number, do not belong in the large-scale nation State too and anyway. it is a large-scale sociopolitical cognitive dissonance to our small-scaled tribal wiring and, as such, ultimately self-collapsing in time.

            Here’s what you don’t understand, because you’re not an Alpha male. Humans exhibit pack behavior. Pack behavior is dictated by a hierarchy. Alpha males lead. Putin is an Alpha male.

            The pack (followers, if you will) needs to understand the dynamic – the pack order. Putin challenged Biden (the supposed leader of the NATO pack) and backed him down from day one.

            Like it or not, all the other NATO members understand now, that their “leader” is no longer, and never was, an Alpha male, and there is a new true Alpha male in the picture.

            Study wolf pack behavior and you’ll understand social hierarchy. Lone wolves leave the pack voluntarily, knowing they’ll never be the Alpha male, nor at a high level in the pack hierarchy, or have been banished by the Alpha male.

            You seem to have chosen to leave voluntarily. Good for you.

            Your adolescent-level conjectures aside, if your Putin, and I were in the same place/room, reality would be much different.
            But given complexity and the here and now, it seems far less about Putin or Biden than we might think anyway.

            That’s maybe partly why our host puts quotes around “Biden” or people talk about who’s ‘controlling’ him. They are like sticky labels on ‘The Machine’– which I’m responding to, incidentally.

            Have you been hitting Hunter’s crack pipe? LOL, thanks for the education. As JHK has said for years – a la TLE – our living arrangements will change – much simpler, due to resource constraints.

            All wars are resource wars – always have been since the beginning of time, and always will be. It has nothing to do with sadomasochism or adolescent-level conjectures.

            Your utopian fantasy world, where we all sit around and sing Kumbaya, may yet happen, but in the meantime, aptly named, there will be difficult times.

            The hopium you’re smoking, is blind to the meantime and supposes a seamless transition in living arrangements. Sorry, but it won’t unfold that way. Much to your dismay I’m sure, there will be no “safe spaces” in the meantime.

      • Hereward the Woke April 22, 2022 at 1:30 pm #

        Actually, Shotho, it’s incredibly easy to justify Putin’s decision to go to war. For the last 30 years, Russia has been saying “Ukraine will not join Nato”. Fast forward to the Nato summit of 2008 and the neo-cons state that Ukraine and Georgia will be part of Nato and Russia can’t do a damn thing about. And don’t even get me started on the 2014 Color Revolution! If Putin had been doing this in Mexico, we’d have been radioactive dust years ago. Wars happen because diplomacy fails. In this case, the West didn’t even try diplomacy. I hope Putin grounds them into dust.

    • thirdcoastlegend April 22, 2022 at 10:46 am #

    A bit misogynistic today Jim, though I think that I can add some clarification to your idea. As I grew up it seemed to me that those who were manipulating our society took the Ward Cleaver and Father Knows Best wise man of the house model and decayed it into an Archie Bunker, Family Guy village idiot paradigm instead. Women were lured out of the traditional roles of housewife and motherhood by demeaning and degrading those roles, so that industry could make them work harder and get paid less and a lot of them fell for it.

    Degrading the roles of all men through pornography, sexual deviation and the current gender bending has had the effect of pretty much removing men from the roles of leadership and replaced them with geriatric zombies who hold the reigns of power in the old, cold hands until death.

    I know many women who are exceptional bright and seriously talented and frankly not too many men of value, especially in leadership roles.

    As I have posted before here, men and women were designed to work together in life to achieve all sorts of goals and when we choose to fight one another instead we get crap like Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden. Right now there are few in the political arena that I have any use or respect for, but Tulsi Gabbard, Allen West, and Rand Paul are certainly my top three in the respect category.

    Let us strive to work together and refuse to work against one another .

      Men and women were designed to work together with men leading. Women have no interest in men who are below them in the social hierarchy – usually calibrated in terms of how much he makes.

      Classic Feminism threw in the idea that Feminism would free men from being success objects. No doubt many idealistic women believed this. But their lower brains, chakras, and glands did and do not.

      Still with me? Thus? Thus the higher women rise, the less they marry. Thus? Fewer high IQ couples. Thus? Thus fewer high IQ children. Thus? Thus we decline as a people and nation. Replacing what should have been with high IQ Asian immigrants really isn’t the same thing. Their loyalties are in question to say the least.

        IQ is an interesting thing as it doesn’t necessarily quantify the type of intelligence one has. Currently it is fashionable to consider those with the STEM skills to be the intelligent ones. All those wordy, philosophical types be damned!

        The STEM high IQ couples that marry often hatch progeny on the spectrum. You know, the types who willingly fit into a slot somewhere where original thoughts are unwelcome – just knowing complexity is key. Not smart in a way that matters when SHTF.

        Some of the young smart daughters of my friends can’t get a relationship going due to Wokeism. If they date a fella that checks all the Woke boxes he turns out to be an immature jerk (surprise!). Dating a “regular’ guy is out of the question for these gals so they are left in a perpetual circle of romantic disappointment because the Woke “man” is unable to truly fulfill his role. They are losing precious time.

        Of course a young gal I know without the university education is the real smart one. She has taken a different tack and has joined a Christian Orthodox church. She is one of the faithful but she’s also on a mission to find her future husband there among the congregation. She’s pretty, kind and is eager to start a family. I reckon those will be smart kids.

        “Men and women were designed to work together with men leading.” ~ Jarek

        Nature is adaptive and changeable and can resist/transcend the little compartmentalizations/categorizations/labels/expectations/notions/etc. that humans attempt to bung nature into.
        That includes ‘men’ and ‘women’.

        One problem with ‘feminism’– and you’ll likely agree– and probably the fundamental one– is precisely its ‘semantics’ or ‘lens’ (of ‘feminine/female’)…

        It suggests what Thomas Kuhn, if recalled, once suggested, namely, and to paraphrase, that ‘it is the lens which determines what we can see’– the ‘Law of the instrument’. Or, to put it another way, ‘with a hammer, everything looks like a nail’.

      And a great read, as usual!

      I myself have been working on the “passive aggression” angle.

      Over at Andrei Martyanov’s blog there is a link to a fellow named Darren Magee who dissects the narcissim complex. Not just personal vanity type narcissism, but the psycho controlling type..Definitely worth a look.

      All of these attempts to understand the underlying neurosis or pathology of the USA show that people have noticed parallels of different kinds between the psychopathologies they deal with in their personal circles and what they witness on our national and international stage.

      People have been very free and easy in their armchair psychologizing of the Germans under the Third Reich. A lot of this is pure BS because the psychologizers do not have a strong enough grasp of the actual history and mechanisms of the Third Reich and the Nazi Party to reach any sensible conclusions.

      Be that as it may, now the gaze is turning toward the USA and its unique combo of aspects of all three viewpoints listed above: narcissism, passive aggression, game playing—they are all related. And for sure other neurotic and psychotic mechanisms come into play. Top of the list: sense of entitlement, a.k.a. exceptionalism.

      Decades from now tomes will be written on what the he– happened in the USA in the 2020s—how it all went wrong.

      Meanwhile Americans continue with their clueless virtue signaling regarding the Ukraine and their self-righteous judgments regarding the responses of Germans to the quite sudden imposition of a totalitarian regime after the whole society had been brought to its knees in the wake of WW1 and Versailles.

        Islander,

        Germany isn’t much better. These past two or so years have made both myself and my wife (a native German) despise Germany.

        About 55-60 percent of the population here are full-on Covid Nazis. We are currently on vacation in the Netherlands and one can identify other Germans here by those wearing masks.

        As much as the average American’s knowledge of and judgemental nature about Germany’s particularly nasty descent into totalitarianism is shallow and oboxious respectively, they aren’t far off base.

        There is more actual resistance to the Corona Hoax in one or two US states than in the whole of Germany. The nastiness I have witnessed here among the peasantry, and the sheer calculating evil of the political class, is something I will never forget — and it has changed my outlook on many things.

          There are a number of books that are out there and one that I read chronicling the USMA Class of 1941 and their exploits in WWII. especially in the rebuilding of Germany after the war.

          From what I read; the American occupational forces not only populated the new government with US sympathizers and those that could be controlled, but they instituted a series of policies that pretty much de-balled the entire population and rammed enough guilt and fear up their wazoos to pretty much assure that Germany would never again be a threat and pretty much not even a country, only a puppet. Isn’t that right, Frau Merkel?

          Looks like it worked.

          • abbybwood April 22, 2022 at 11:51 pm #

            Yet Putin allowed Merkel to talk him into accepting the empty Minsk Accord with Ukraine in 2015.

            An accord that Ukraine completely ignored.

            I feel certain yet to this day he regrets going along with her “advice”.

          • Sean Coleman April 23, 2022 at 5:50 pm #

            E MIchael Jones says that Germany was subject to merciless brain washing after the War and remains the most brainwashed country in the whole world. The Holocaust story is central to the process and EMJ seems to have been looking at the the story per se in recent weeks because in a recent video on Bitchute he said that his early expertise in English Literature heoped him in evaluating the H literature since, he says, it seems to be all based on childhood reminiscence. In short, fiction. I wonder if I may have played a tiny part in nudging him in that direction through the coments section. Doubful but one never knows. He has written a lot about Heisinger (the phyicist), Ratzinger and Das Hungerjahr (the winter of 46-7, from memory) when there appeared to be a real attempt to starve the Germans. It looks like this latter threat is coming around for all of us this time round.

            I have failed to commit tot memory the name of the American Jew who acted as censor in post-war Germany. Everything that was published had to get his approval first.

            It is difficult to commit these things to memory. And even when you succeed it just washes over people and their eyes glaze over.

          Netherlands, last week of April: tulip heaven!!

          I have such wonderful memories of biking for miles and miles among the tulip fields.

          Truly my vision of heaven.

          Hope you are having a good vacation.

          As for Germany, it seems like the country was basically politically lobotomized in the twentieth century. Healthy midcentury efforts to throw off the American yoke were nipped in the bud. The Overton Window was always very narrow in Germany. Narrower than in the USA. Walking on eggshells.

          It’s a miracle that Russia emerged from the disastrous twentieth century with mental structures more or less intact. I ascribe that to the leadership of Vladimir Vladimirovich.

          • Night Owl April 22, 2022 at 4:16 pm #

            Yes, the tulips are out in force. I also forgot how much the Dutch seem to value beauty in their communities. The towns here are absolutely beautiful, and the people take great pride in keeping them that way. I think the Germans had it all sucked out of them after the war.

            Hereward, I hope not. We don’t have plans to leave anytime soon, as we have invested too much at this point.

        • spaingaroo April 24, 2022 at 9:23 am #

          but, the Germans of today have so little relationship to the Germans that loved and respected Hitler. Those Germans were exterminated, wholesale slaughter, the very thing we are supposed to never never think about. Went on for years after the end of the war, for those who define these things. The only Germans that were left were the ones who cowered, and still cower and the rats, as you noted. Every person who frequents this blog and has still not seen Europa;The Final Battle documentary series owes it to themselves to do so. And then the rest of those most banned docos, like Hellstorm, or the Greatest Story Never Told.

      Those old TV shows were models for functional families. Ward Cleaver reminded me of my dad, always calm and rational.
      When they started attacking society they went for the family.
      There were a slew of movies with children born evil, spawn of the devil and the TV fathers changed to total assholes.
      I watched The Cosby Show and he was a traditional TV father, but the commercials for the show, which aired constantly, featured one line….”I brought you into this world and I can take you out”.
      I never heard that line in the actual show, but I heard it hundreds of times in the promos,
      I found that interesting. They featured a father threatening to kill his child?

    • Anthea April 23, 2022 at 7:28 am #

      @ Walter B:

      I’ve never known anyone even remotely like Ward Cleaver, Archie Bunker, Family Guy–or Desperate Housewives, or sitcoms set in NYC in which marginally employed young people live in apartments that suggest they must have a helluva trust fund.

      All of this stuff is wildly fictional and not really suitable material from which to draw conclusions about the American family.

      I am tempted to draw portraits of the families I have known, but that would get lengthy and tedious. Suffice to say, they are nothing like TV, either past or present. One of the main differences between TV and reality is that, in the real world, families have REAL problems: cancer, foreclosure, autistic kids, car trouble, substance abuse, frozen pipes, cows that get out onto the highway and such.

      To tell you the truth, I could rarely take an interest in Leave It to Beaver because it lacked dramatic tension. In other words, there was no real problem to resolve.

        The interesting thing about “brightness” is that it is often found where you’d least expect it. In fact, I’d say it’s most often found where you’d least expect it. (This also true of “dumbness.”) You’ll find the least brightness among people who have papers to prove they are bright, and the most among those without papers to prove it. If you don’t recognize it among the common run of humanity, including those whom society had told you must, given their circumstances, be dull, you won’t recognize it anywhere. You don’t know what you’re looking for.

    Someone needs to tell Europe that the US will NOT be able to supply their energy needs, especially LNG. For one, we’d need added wells, processing, storage, transportation, ports and a fleet of ships. Last time I checked, we are not in possession of a fleet of ships to move all this LNG around.

    The situation reminds me of the 6th Army encircled at Stalingrad. A drug-addicted Göring flippantly announced that the 6th Army would be resupplied daily by air and everyone had to pretend that such a thing was possible while the encircled starved. Everyone could pretend such things until it was no longer possible for the 6th Army to fight its way out. BTW, some of the very last transport planes carried awards and honors to the men of the 6th Army so that at least they could starve to death wearing a nice piece of colored ribbon.

    Bye bye NATO. It was nice knowing ya.

    • PeteAtomic April 22, 2022 at 10:11 am #

      “The situation reminds me of the 6th Army encircled at Stalingrad”

      I agree. Complete with similar propaganda stories coming from the front, as well.

      For example, today, MSN article reporting “Ukraine now has more tanks than Russia, says defense official”

      hahaha

      like, wtf??

      • NickelthroweR April 22, 2022 at 11:11 am #

        I can only imagine. Goebels had an amazing propaganda film made after the disastrous defeat at Kursk. If that newsreel were your only source of news, you’d believe that the Germans had just destroyed the entire Russian Army. You’d never know that that was the last offensive on the Eastern Front and that all that was left was a slow retreat back to Berlin.

        Our tranny army isn’t going to save us so that leaves our “wonder weapons” just as the Germans put their faith in their “wonder weapons”. But our wonder weapons require an insane amount of maintenance to run. Take the F35 for example. It is an aircraft that is so complicated that at any given time 90% of the fighters are simply unavailable. Worse still, it has a supply chain that includes most of our allies (what better way to launder money). For example, Turkish industries produced roughly 1,000 parts for the F-35, including 188 associated with the engine but those contracts were canceled when Turkey bought the S400 anti-aircraft system from Russia. Of course, that is probably for the best as we’ve discovered that the engine parts made in Turkey are failing years sooner than anticipated.

    Yep. Mariupol pretty much cleaned out this morning, with bad guy Azov’s (and their NATO “advisers”) gone subterranean like the rats they are in the tunnels under the steel works. Won’t get much press time here in the west, other than to fuel the propaganda fires that Putin has somehow “lost his nerve.” Which means the Ukies in Donbas will soon be receiving the “tender loving care” they’ve longed for so much since this whole affair began. Hope they got their personal affairs in order ahead of time. I’m sure their masters in Kiev will be watching anxiously.

    So one wonders where exactly all those heavy weapons promised by “the Joe Biden” yesterday will go and who will end up in possession of them? Surely even the stupid Polacks next door have figured out that Mr. Vlad will certainly not approve and has already demonstrated his capability to take them out prior to or as soon as they enter the country. What future conflict(s) will those fuel and who will be on the receiving end? And maybe more importantly, whose pockets will get filled from the proceeds? Enquiring minds want to know.

      There is zero reason for the Russians to assault the Avostal.

      It would mean flamethrowers, shaped chargers, use of robots. Very high death toll. There may be civilian hostages that the neo-nazis are holding down there.

      The Russians rightly will seal it off, and allow them to starve and run out of potable water, while shifting the Brigade Combat Groups to the front.

      Btw, doubtful anything will get to the Donbas. From the interviews I’ve watched, most equipment from NATO is stuck in warehouses in Lviv, getting used by local area commanders there.

    So, just be aware. This summer, when it is 105 F in places like Detroit, or Baltimore, or Cleveland– after warning the US government of its interference, Russia just may decide to look at the range of American power systems– like let’s take the electrical grid– and turn it off for a week, or two.

        The US wants to maintain control if for no other reason, the biological weapon grade (illegal) labs in the county which Cruella Nuland admitted to, the stacks of evidence of money laundering and corruption the Bidens and other high ranking US politicians have been involved in and Ukraine provides copious amounts of wheat and corn.

        Did you know after the overthrow of their government in 2014, one of the first things implemented was to legalize Monsanto’s GMO wheat?

        “In fact, a bit of political maneuvering by the IMF gave the Ukraine a $17 billion loan – but only if they would open up to biotech farming and the selling of Monsanto’s poison crops and chemicals – destroying a farmland that is one of the most pristine in all of Europe. Farm equipment dealer, Deere, along with seed producers Dupont and Monsanto, will have a heyday.

        In the guise of ‘aid,’ a claim has been made on Ukraine’s vast agricultural riches. It is the world’s third largest exporter of corn and fifth largest exporter of wheat. Ukraine has deep, rich, black soil that can grow almost anything, and its ability to produce high volumes of GM grain is what made biotech come rushing to take it over.”

The IMF being nothing more than a public/private slush fund set up for making extortionary loans to third world countries, most of whom have been previously softened up by the US war machine. This is just another criminal mafia operation writ VERY large, largely legalized by the fact that “the mob” in this case owns the governments who write the laws.

          Monsanto and Cargill moved in to cannibalize Ukrainian topsoil. They did the same thing in Iraq after the US destroyed it.
          And then they set up an ID system in Iraq which relied on biometric info, like eye scans.
          I just read that Ukraine has instituted a digital currency system like what the WEF is pushing.
          The US uses the countries they destroy for multiple purposes.
          Don’t forget the woman and child trafficking that has been going on for years.

            Iraq was known as the cradle of civilization because it was one of the first to invent agriculture.
            After the destruction the US passed a law making it illegal for Iraqi farmers to save seeds, as they had been doing for 10,000 years.
            They had to buy Monsanto seeds every year.

The Great Reset is about clearing the decks, ending the useless eaters. We are there now. Right in front of us. What is the point of thinking that things still work? Everything is financed with fake money. When the fake money goes, everything goes. The Great Reset is a failure plan. We lose, they win. If the Great Reset wins, they win. If the Great Reset fails, they win. We lose either way.

It will have to come to all the safe suburbs full of Dem voters who think they’re still supporting the party of FDR, and have no idea whatever that they’re enabling the destruction of everything they have known. It will also have to reach the middle and upper level management of corporations, who have voted to eliminate the police because they thought their wealthy enclaves would be safe no matter how unsafe they made it for lesser humans.

Canned soups, stews, tuna, rice, barley, and other grains are good choices if you can afford it. Those who can but don’t have space – get rid of something you don’t really need. Use a closet, put things under the bed. Unfortunately, lots of people expect that things will get dicey, but don’t act on it even though they could.

And he’s out of the fight since he didn’t feel free to say anything but “I’m fine and “Thank you” over and over again. He is thankful – his fame may well have saved his life. His computer and phone have been taken from him and he has been ordered to stay in the city.

    I thought “Coach Red Pill” was just a name Anglin made up, but apparently Lira was a famous Men’s Right advocate with hundreds of thousands of followers at one point.

            If you isolate his sentences, and study them one by one; most of them are so vague and obtuse that they would never hold up in court as a lie, and or a false statement.

            Thats why he keeps saying:

            “Im ok, Im ok, Im ok…”

            That part is true, hence why he keeps repeating it.

            Lira has worked as a filmmaker and a novelist.

            Thus, we can assume he has at least above average storytelling skills. Those are certainly very useful skills in this age of narrative.

            I think people are taken in by Lira because he’s good at projecting a fairly gentle nature without coming off as a completely naive dolt.

            He did do a good job breaking down some of the staged propaganda videos that were put out in support of the Zelensky side.

            Anyway, who knows what the real story is. Perhaps it’s simple opportunism to build his social media following, perhaps he thinks there’s a book and/or film in here somewhere.

        Truly a damning statement.

          Not when Barry sez it. Now it’s ok. (Ok that “we have now essentially clinically tested the vaccine on billions of people”.)

        He meant to. He knows the populace is too hypnotized into mass formation to do anything about it.

        Where’s Redneck to tell us all it’s a conspiracy theory? LOL.

        • GreenAlba April 23, 2022 at 10:51 am #

          I’d like to know what Redneck thinks of this very recent scientific paper on Science Direct (Elsevier):

          https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/35436552/

          Innate immune suppression by SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccinations: The role of G-quadruplexes, exosomes, and MicroRNAs

          (Seneff, Nigh, Kyriakopoulos, McCullough)

          Key points:

          > mRNA vaccines cause sustained synthesis of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein;

          > The spike protein is neurotoxic, and it inhibits DNA repair mechanisms;

          > Suppression of type 1 interferon responses results in impaired innate immunity;

          > The mRNA vaccines potentially cause increased risk to infectious diseases and cancer;

          > Codon optimization results G-rich mRNA that has unpredictable complex effects.

          Also, since the two articles are somewhat complementary, it would be good to have Redneck’s critique of a slightly older one in the journal ‘Circulation‘, which has been posted on here already, as I recall:

          https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/10.1161/circ.144.suppl_1.10712

          Abstract 10712: Observational Findings of PULS Cardiac Test Findings for Inflammatory Markers in Patients Receiving mRNA Vaccines

          “mRNA covid vaccines dramatically increase endothelial inflammatory markers and ACS (Acute Coronary Syndrome) risk as measured by the PULS cardiac test: a warning”.

          I sent both of these articles to my MP yesterday, in response to a load of blather he sent me about the Online Safety Bill being necessary because of all the covid misinformation rife on social media, as well as ‘Russian disinformation’ about the Ukraine war (which I hadn’t even mentioned, but since he called it the ‘illegal invasion of Ukraine’, I asked if he meant more illegal or less illegal than the UK’s illegal invasion of Iraq). Awaiting his next reply, if forthcoming …

            I should say that the key points above are pretty much what I recall our sometime CFNer, ‘michael’ listing about 9 months ago, but it’s found its way into an Elsevier journal, which makes it no longer hearsay. 🙂

        I think that’s the most repulsive 10 seconds of Obama I’ve ever seen – and yes, I was taken in by him the first time around.

        • Islander April 23, 2022 at 5:35 pm #

          I was taken in by him until Inauguration Day.

          The video/Steadicam that followed him as he strode through the Capitol to emerge on the balcony in front of his adoring people revealed to me a face that I will never forget: closed, haughty, hieratic, cold, calculating.

          It froze me cold.

          I said to myself, “I am going to be happy for one day to see the backs of the Bushes.”

          But I knew Obama was poison.

          I have tried a couple of times to locate that footage. It must have been an MSM channel because I went to a local hotel which had opened its lobby to the public to see the Inauguration on their big screen. But I was never able to find it. Must be in some video archive.

          My gut said he was bad news (in part due to the massive PR campaign behind him, which was like nothing ever seen in history), and I did not vote for him. That said, he was far worse than I could have imagined.

          I used to call him Shrub Lite, but that doesn’t come close to cutting it.

      Even Bill Gates, vaxx-pusher extraordinaire, has said out loud that the vaxxes don’t stop infection and don’t stop transmission (I think Obama said 1 in 5 Americans were willing to put themselves and their families at risk by not getting vaxxed.

      Gates says it in the last couple of minutes of this interview with Jeremy Hunt (which, unsurprisingly, didn’t make its way on to UK mainstream TV).

      • TaxDonkey April 22, 2022 at 2:43 pm #

        In the sexual harassment training I’ve been through, they set up video learning scenarios where they have the victims, perpetrators and rescuers. (It’s called the “rescue game”, it’s as old as man). In the 8 or 9 teaching scenarios shown, every victim was a female of various races. The one exception was a gay black man victim taking shit for not wanting to go to a party and date women. The perpetrators were virtually always white males stereotypical of the “dominant culture”. Interestingly, the rescuers were essentially all female supervisors making sure the systems worked correctly. The race of the female authority figures was about split 50:50 white black down the middle. Not sure if Jacinda was her name.

      It’s impossible not to notice the sadistic glee with which these creatures anticipate crushing us. They don’t make the least attempt to hide it, publicly smirking as they describe the punishments they intend to inflict on us. They’ve usurped the Daddy role, but instead of setting things right, they turn every norm upside down and create chaos and ruin everywhere. We’re no longer making enough actual men to round them up and send them to their rooms with no supper.

            I’m a retired blue collar worker. Home paid for. I pay property taxes, exorbitant levels of sales tax, ad valorem on two autos and one motorcycle. If I could avoid them without a jail term, property confiscation or a shootout with the feds, then I would do it in a heartbeat. Thirty five years ago, or so. A local farmer who lived about 3 miles south of me, lost his farm to the IRS for non payment of property taxes. He claimed the tax laws were unconstitutional.

          • Disaffected April 22, 2022 at 1:16 pm #

            Yep. And there’s no statute of limitations in tax law. The IRS can ignore it for years and then some little thing pops up on their radar and you’re done. And oh yeah, they add interest and penalties on all the backlog, so it doesn’t take much to clean you out entirely.

          • Disaffected April 22, 2022 at 1:26 pm #

            Took one semester of tax accounting in college before running for the exits in abject horror. The text book was a ten pound beast printed on rice paper, with appendices and bibliographies galore. Felt like I was in Law School, which is essentially what tax accounting is. The instructor (a CPA, of course) even warned us ahead of time that he had to grade us on a curve, cause if he used the standard scale every single one of us would fail. The high marks usually hovered around 50%, with the fat part of the curve at 20-40%. It felt like a boot camp to see who was insane enough to come back for more abuse. Rest assured, I wasn’t and didn’t.

      • JohnAZ April 22, 2022 at 12:22 pm #

        Easter bunnies are white, the color of Jesus’ purity. Pet bunnies have been bred toward white to feed a market.

        My grandson raised a rabbit into a commercial marketplace. I still do not understand what market that is. His rabbit and all the competition were not white.

        • malthuss April 22, 2022 at 5:39 pm #

        You made an excellent point, Thwack. There’s no justice in the bunny world and many lab rats are white with pink eyes. Talk about racist!

        • Blackbird April 22, 2022 at 10:13 pm #

          All those white rabbits and rats, chickens and turkeys – especially them ones with the red eyes – of course they’re selectively bred to be that way. Hundreds of generations in those chosen few families since anyone got to decide who to fuck. Always decided for them. Sometimes it was a close relative. Gotta bring those valuable genes to the surface.

          Live fast and die young. Many live their entire lives under surveillance, even their excrement collected and used for divination. Dissected, analyzed, to death and beyond.

          That’s the Easter Bunny’s white privilege.

      • Islander April 22, 2022 at 4:29 pm #

        Quite true, re white Easter bunnies.

        I guess spring is the season of pastels.

        Still, most bunnies are brown.

        Also, most lilies are not white, but Easter lilies are white.
        So, there is definitely something going on with white and Easter!!

        The white of the paschal (word) lamb must have been transferred to Easter bunnies and lilies.

        All of our holidays are linked to very clear color schemes. I can’t think of any holiday that has been clearly linked to either white or brown.

        Bonus gardening tip:
        If you buy an Easter lily in a pot, keep it after it has finished blooming and let it die back—then it can be planted in the ground and will come back in the summer of 2023. Asiatic lilies are wonderful perennials: they are pretty reliable, get bigger each year, and put on a fabulous display in the summer.

        • Anthea April 22, 2022 at 10:34 pm #

          My favorites are the Black Dragon lilies. They get about five feet tall and have a cluster of white flowers with a maroon reverse. The individual flowers are not as big as lampshades, but close. They smell divine.

        Watching that video, if you didn’t know who the old guy was, it would be reasonable to have sympathy for him. Think of the emptiness in that head. And the vague awareness of that emptiness. And of being lost in it.

    And what about the situation in Shanghai?

    We are to believe this was a Covid response but beyond that very little was said. Videos of people crying from apartment towers seemed very fake and the killing of pets seemed to be western propaganda. Not saying there wasn’t suffering from the shutdown but that happens in a soft war.

    The lack of comment from western world leaders seemed to be because they couldn’t actually believe the Chinese would use Covid to screw them back. But they did and have.

    I suspect Obama and the merry band of NeoCons sent old Lindsay Graham to Taiwan in hopes it will “show China a thing or two” but I find it hard to believe China has much respect for anything LG has to say. They know who and what he is.

    I thought the essay was weak; it seized upon one minor aspect and projected it onto the whole. As if leadership itself was some kind of feckless incompetent like the degraded father figure.

    To figure out what is happening today, you need to understand the long term objective. Again, the notion that the great mass of useless eaters who do nothing towards advancing science & discovery, yet continue to fuck & consume ever more of the most critical resource known to man is preposterous.

    So, the Great Reset. Population back down to 500m, 95% of which are productive workers keeping the basic infrastructure gowing – nursing along the last available reserves – to allow the advanced to continue making progress towards total AI. That is, non organic ‘intelligence’ light wave travel to explore the universe.

    In this rapidly approaching techo-feudal environment, a genderless, raceless core will be satisfied with virtual reality programming, as much sex for the sperm (porn), and as much drama (social) for the eggs, that either group could desire.

    If you get the end goal, then you’ll understand why every traditional form of personal organization eg family unit, has to be ridiculed, disparaged, regulated and dismantled.

    People can mistake these actions as if the elite actually care about any particular issue. As if they really give a damn about woke or whatever. The truth is, they’re just levers to be pulled.

    The old fashioned way to effect change was brute force; simply kill everyone. The smarter way to achieve progress is what we see in action today. The one key obstacle, the one promoting the old obsolete form is Russia.

    Anyway, I know some/many will claim this is monstrous; yet what is their solution? To continue along a path ruled by archaic human forms the very impulses that got us here? Does no one see that we are in a box canyon with no way out?

    If the reset isn’t effected, we’ll all be starving, desperate. Civilization will collapse and warlord states will gain access to nukes and use them. We then degrade to barbarian clans with local raids, slavery and cannibalism.

    This is how the world works. Intelligent apes have maybe a slight chance to apply logic to turn us away from a natural outcome.

    • JohnAZ April 22, 2022 at 12:31 pm #

      JHK has said, over and over, that the main problem facing humanity is how to run economies with slow to no growth. I think everyone agrees that over population density is causing most of the problems today. To slow the problem, slower population growth is mandatory, hence the economic problems.

      No one in government knows what to do with slow economic growth. GOP wants to give more money to the private sector, and the Dems think the government should doing the decision making.

      If the last thirty years is any indication, no one seems to have any answers.

        The Smartest People in the Room think they can handle any unforeseen consequences and convinced themselves they’re right up there with God (whom most have no use for). Frankenstein by Mary Shelley was about this arrogant belief that science could create a perfect man but the perfect man turned out to be a monster and not a man at all. Oppenheimer quoted the Hindu holy book when he saw the first atomic bomb detonated —

        “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds”.

        He knew this bomb was going to be used on civilian populations b/c of all the bombs already dropped on them. Arrogance + brilliance produced this monstrous ego who dismissed the suffering he was going to cause. The people (whoever they are) are cast in the same mold as those who gin up these unnecessary wars, fake pandemics, and hire the media spaniels to broadcast them.

    • Anthea April 22, 2022 at 3:00 pm #

      @ mitchellc:

      Well, yours is an interesting argument: “If we don’t kill off humanity pre-emptively, they’re all gonna die.” This is kind of like the pro-abortion argument that goes, “We should kill them so they don’t have a miserable, unhappy life” (which we can foresee due to our psychic powers).

      I am not sure I see where the techno-feudal world is in any way superior to a world in which humans revert to what they’ve been doing all along; namely, fighting wars, starving and doing without when resources were scarce, enslaving each other, and occasionally snacking on someone’s succulent haunch.

      And yet, concurrent with all this barbarism, many people still managed to live fulfilling lives, have meaningful personal relationships, raise families, engage in meaningful work, and enjoy some fun and adventures. They also managed to create high cultures and fine music and art.

      Life is tough and has always been tough. But is also is, and has always been, good. The chief underpinning of human dignity and happiness is suffering, effort, sacrifice, and confronting challenges. And if these involve no risk of failure or death, they wouldn’t be much of a challenge, would they?

      People don’t understand what life is, and apparently this makes them keen on exchanging it for nonentity.

    Loved the article. The US, despite all the tantrums women throw about the oppressive patriarchy, is a covert single-mother matriarchy. A nation of single mothers raising a generation of emasculated men who cower to women. And as such, the US (more specifically the Democrats) exhibits on an elephantine scale the typical character of a badly-bred woman: she deals in manipulation, is given to tantrums, has no functioning conscience, and is petty, small-minded and unsportsmanlike. For example, she twists arguments and accuses her enemies of the VERY thing she is guilty of. She holds people accountable to their own standards and restraints, yet she has none of her own (“Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” – Saul Alinsky). She breaks all the Ten Commands and does so gleefully, taking a sadistic delight in getting away with sin and in inflicting pain upon those whom she dislikes. She is Eve, Delilah or Queen Jezebel from the Old Testament: the corrupter of the man’s conscience, the destroyer of everything the man has painstakingly built. She is chaos and destruction incarnate, and has been let loose to bring down 10 thousand years of man’s progress from savage to near-godlike stature. She wants to tear him down and reduce him to animal again.

    I must disagree with, or rather fill in, Kunstler on one point: I strongly suspect that the progressive cathedral is using Ukraine as a proxy to sap Russia’s strength, just as the Philistines used Delilah to bring down Samson. In this sense, their provocation of Russia is a calculated move. Russia undertakes a costly campaign to conquer Ukraine, then is bankrupted and exhausted by war, thus leaving only the US and China on the world stage as the only superpowers in contention. I don’t know if they factored peak oil and oil depletion into their calculations. Russia, and its apparent new ally Saudi Arabia, have a surplus of oil going forward, the US does NOT. This means they may ultimately emerge victorious. The US may have an agreement to protect the Middle East, but if a Ukrainian missile can sink a Russian battleship, why can’t Russian hypersonic missiles sink US batttleships in the Persian Gulf? The US would not be able to project its power in that region (by weaponizing crude-oil sales and traffic) and force its will upon the world.

    I have been watching the political situation for quite a while.

    I do not see how the West and the East will ever reconcile into a United economy or culture.

    Half the wealth in the country are in the cities. Most of the cities are on the coasts. Hence, national political power is on the coasts. Even the coasts differ, the West being more progressive in nature.

    The impasse in DC right now is a joke. The cities are minority, gimme in nature just because they do not produce staples, but consume them. The more rural, the more conservative, the more independent, and the less gimme. The two used to be interdependent, any more that political interdependence has been denied more and more.

    How to split the country, East vs. Wast and cities vs, countryside.

    Right now, no one has a clue. Hence the discord in DC.

    Going to Las Vegas, take in the Mob museum. Looking at the progress of the multitude of Mobs in the US may suggest that the only thing holding the country together right now might be the Black Markets, drugs, trafficking all under the auspices of the Mobs.

      “Half the wealth in the country are in the cities.”

      That’s only if you consider wealth as exclusively dollar assets. The productivity, when it comes to the basics rather than financial bullshit, lies primarily in rural areas (e.g, food production). The productive skills, other than financial bullshit, are primarily among the working class. I would also postulate that the divide is more rural vs city rather than east vs west.

    “America hates daddies. To America, all daddies are monsters (rapists!).”

    Men are a victim of Cancel Culture.

    Forget that it was men that allowed human civilization to last into the 21 Century against all odds in a hostile universe and a planet filled with dangers and perils. Forget that men are responsible for most of the great inventions and advances within society. Forget that men were placed in a position to lead families along with their female co-partners to raise responsible children who would be worthy of carrying on the family name and taking useful a place upon the Earth.

    But because there have been bad men along the way who abused their positions or took advantage of others or who did not respect the high calling and responsibility that men have to be leaders and elders and teachers and friends and counselors and help-mates and visionaries and all the other things that men have been created to do in this Life… MEN HAD TO GO.

    Forget all that stuff. ‘Men have to go!’ – thus says (not) the Lord in today’s twisted Woke gospel of idiocy but horribly confused and twisted minds that have no sense of the treasured role of men in the human family and who have no respect or appreciation for the infinite number of things that men have contributed to Life and the human family.

    And don’t worry, ladies… you have just as much a high exalted place in the human family as men. Let’s not get hung up on that rivalry nonsense. This is about the Cancellation of Real Men in today’s Woked-Up, Effed-Up, Dark Alley of a Nightmare Society that is being created by and for us today.

    “America’s president, ‘Joe Biden,’ suits the current national script perfectly. He’s a mere prop for the drama queens. No one mistakes him for “Daddy.” He’s the old, impotent, intemperate…”

    He’s not just a prop. He’s a full-on, nail-on-the-head symbol of the entire functional mess of an apparatus (such as it as) of the United States governing class and structure. He’s confused… out of touch… no longer knows who he is or what he should stand for or why… out for to pillage for himself and ‘The Smartest Man I Know’ who just happens to be closely related to him… having no thoughts for tomorrow… not serving any useful purpose… trying to shake hands with ghosts that had already left the building out of boredom… just like the government that pays him and in whose name he goes around wrecking the World like a wayward child acting up in pre-school when he doesn’t get the pudding he wants.

    He is the perfect avatar for a once-great dream of a Nation that no longer has any resemblance to the brilliant concept and ideals it was born as.

    He is many things. But, a man?…

    All you men who are still left around… don’t let anyone steal your Johnson from you. Or make you feel bad that you have one. That’s letting Cancel Culture go just too damn far…

    Be a man. And then act like a man should.

    • Rowdypiglet April 22, 2022 at 1:19 pm #

      “But because there have been bad men along the way who abused their positions or took advantage of others or who did not respect the high calling and responsibility that men have to be leaders and elders and teachers and friends and counselors and help-mates and visionaries and all the other things that men have been created to do in this Life… MEN HAD TO GO.”

      Their beliefs about men are a bit downstream, I think, from their beliefs in general. These are people who compare everything, including every culture and civilization that ever existed, to a Utopia that has never been and never will be – an imaginary place where they get everything they want just by asking for it. Men don’t measure up when compared to The Perfect Man who never existed. The U.S. doesn’t measure up when compared to The Utopia that Never Existed. This is how they think, and why they are never satisfied with anything. There is nothing and no one that can compete with what exists in your imagination and nowhere else. Any imperfection is unacceptable, no matter how petty it is in the greater scheme of things.

      This way of looking at things ties into other beliefs that we’ve inculcated into children for a while now. One of these is that you can do anything you put your mind to. If this is true (and we’ve brought up children to believe that it is) then the only reason that someone with an IQ of 90 is not a theoretical physicist is because he’s been oppressed by our evil culture. All of our fixed beliefs, from the top down, are detached from reality. I’ve worked with low IQ children, and you cannot believe the rage that results from adults telling them that they can be anything they want to be. It’s a lie, but the supposed adults keep saying it and become apoplectic when challenged.

    There is ONE solution required here!! One!!

    How do we convert the energy requirements of the people of the world away from fossil fuels by using something else. The discord is a battle between the different alternatives. So far, renewables has increased is share up to 10% overall. Experience in Europe has shown we may be topping out the efficiency of solar, wind.

    Peak oil should be an absolute warning to the world that the FF issue is moot. If 2050 shows up with the same amount of stupidity about energy that exists today, the major die off will commence starting in energy poor areas first. FF will be history.

    “Mainly we hate the Russian president for doing what he said he would do, acting like a man, literally having to set boundaries for the unruly children, like Daddy used to do. America hates daddies.”

    Well, if by that you mean that daddy is a psychopath with a god complex who beats up his kids and rapes them, then, yeah, most Americans hate those kinds of daddies. Most sane folks do. Daddy thinks he is the Redeemer of the Russian soul, protector of the Russian spirit and that he is answerable on this plane to no one but himself–and certainly not the rule of law! And he is ordained by GOD to do as he pleases and woe be he, she, they who disagree with him! And if he has to burn down his own and his neighbour’s house to impose his will, then his will be done.

        Putin drew a red line. Unlike the cowardly US presidents, his red lines mean something.

        The cause of this war is the USA through NATO. 2014, Putin drew the line, the Baltics, Romania and Bulgaria joined NATO, but Putin said, not Ukraine. Could the USA leave well enough alone? Heck no, push push push. Three Ukrainian presidents have been exposed to Putin, all three manipulated by elements of the USA including the Biden Mob. So now, Z decides he is going to mess with Putin, backed by NATO, or so he thought. So now, Ukraine is being leveled.

        Hi Rowdypiglet.

        “First you make a number of statements about Putin with which many here disagree”
        Yes, I do.
        As for “serious daddy issues” it is no more silly than “momma-ville. And I don’t hear much blowback on that. But it is a sad commentary that a state that is authoritarian and engaged in a war of choice on a lack of a even a flimsy justification apart from naked ambition is supported by many here. And before you tell me of all the “evidence” that JHK Admin has cited in the past– a careful look at it suggests–zero. If it had been true–don’t you think the Russians would have been sharing it? They can’t because they have nada.

        That is a serious daddy issue! “Believe what I say even when events unfold that show my predictions based on these claims are wrong. And further–I will expect you to IGNORE what I said about my predictions because I am never wrong. And you must always uphold what I say–regardless of what evidence says.” That is an authoritarian impulse–“OBEY THY FATHER!!!” Yep, serious daddy issues…

        And there is a LOT of that here.

      Yes, the death of civilizations is cyclical. They all die, and their deaths are often attended by the descent of their people into degradation. It seems to be the way that works.

      The notion that this process can be reversed is like thinking that a terminal cancer patient in hospice care can become 21 again. While it is possible to slow the death process–i.e., give the terminal cancer patient an extra three months–it is not possible change the outcome (death) and restore his youth and health.

      With civilizations too, this is just the course of nature. We’re living through an era of advancing decay and will probably soon be living through an era of death. But nature is a fine thing; spring follows winter, and so on.

    Jim, like so many others, only sees the shadows and is forced to use his own imagination to construct reality. This is a result of 3 key factors:

    Ego – only a few know the truth; the rest, including most everyone in govt is a clueless hack ergo CFN.

    Indoctrination – the belief that the general mass have influence, the ability of self determination. This has never been true, going back to when wealthy land owners seized N America for themselves.

    Naivete – the belief in happy outcomes, that actions don’t have consequences. We got ourselves into this box, consuming every possible resource and wildly outpacing any sustainable pop level. But somehow if we all cooperate, we can share the pain and live on.

    No, the counter position, the one ruled by facts, the one where the very plans are openly discussed, rebut each of the above:

    Awareness – anyone at any level of understanding and/or influence knows the score – maybe 10s of thousands.

    Leadership – the elite who control finance, media and govt would/do laugh at the pathetic notion that commoners have any input. Recall if wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

    Reality – kumbaya is a killer; drop unicorns and rainbows. This is a fight to the finish. There are only 2 ways out: the western way of compassionate genocide vs the Russian way of raising the gates while the world burns.

    Does Ukraine have an army, navy or an air force? The only fighting formation that’s been identified is the Azov Brigade, which is buried under rubble in a defunct steel mill in Mariuopol. In Mariuopol, which is a seaport, why isn’t the Ukraine Navy evacuating trapped soldiers, or shelling Russian positions with naval artillery? Where is the Air Force, and why isn’t it providing close combat support targeting Russian tanks? It seems like Ukraine’s armed forces consists largely of phantoms, and the only war they’re winning is the bullsh#t propaganda war spun out by Zelensky and amplified by western media.

      I read somewhere – probably the Saker – that back when the Ukrainians had a navy, they tried to evacuate that forlorn hope from Mariuopol, and got their backsides spanked by the Russian hedgehog.

      I’m surprised that wasn’t spun as, “We told our Navy, ‘Go home! We wish to fight and die for our nation!'”

      Or that the navy just stopped by to drop off some pistol packin’ drag queens.

    The situation in Mariupol is becoming more and more tragic and painful… Orcs are storming and destroying by all means Azovstal, where our soldiers have been bravely defending for almost 2 months.

    Jarek: Anglin feels that Putin is reading his site and getting ideas. He is going to seal the “supermen” ( super swine) inside their fortress. Anglin is disappointed: he thinks the river should be diverted to drown them like rats! If Putin takes, why not take this too? Why? Why?!

    • Disaffected April 22, 2022 at 7:04 pm #

      The consensus seems to be that Putin is still playing the public relations card to counter the West’s “war crimes” propaganda blitz. Remains to be seen how well all that will play, but it doesn’t seem to be too effective on this side of the pond. Maybe it plays better to the Russian audience? The dramatic possibilities of embedded NATO swine coming up from the tunnels all war torn and ragged after a few weeks of starvation would be great, although you can bet their own governments will disavow all knowledge of their involvement.

      • Islander April 22, 2022 at 8:32 pm #

        No, not public relations.

        Putin is probably listening to the ladies in his advisory circle.

        Why waste men and a perfectly good industrial installation when the easy way is to wait it out. Also, there are probably civilians in there.

        And Who Knows Who Else Is Hiding in Azovstal???

    Meanwhile, ontop of everything else, in Kenmore, Ohio (outside of Akron) a group of about 10 Eagle Scouts enter a Louis Vuitton store and strip it clean like locusts in a matter of just a minute or two — stripped the shelves clean — then sprinted out to waiting vehicles. They’re gone. Here’s the beautiful irony of the situation: a few years ago when cities were burning and stores were being looted coast to coast, Louis Vuitton declared itself “down with the struggle” and made sizable donations to BLM coffers lol!

    On the other hand if any CFNers want to score some Louis Vuitton merch on the cheap, check out Ebay; some of it should be appearing for sale as early as now.

    “One thing I would say about the prospects for government action. Governments are crowds. They are reactive not proactive. And essentially it means that whatever they do, they’re… extrapolating past trends forward and not anticipating trend changes. So that’s like driving your car, flooring it, while only looking in the rear view mirror. It’s practically a guarantee of a really nasty accident. Plus the people who are in power tend to have the most invested in the status-quo. They tend to have benefitted greatly from that. These are not the people you are going to look to to change that kind of system.

        Yup and while I appreciate much of his efforts, alas, that’s what JHK’s doing.

        But he’s nowhere near alone in, paradoxically perhaps, kind of nevertheless upholding the State by giving it attention here on his soapbox platform. I mean, why stop with the State? Why not talk/bitch about the Pope/Vatican because they are ‘important’? I am being somewhat facetious of course.

        The State and its so-called monopoly on violence has taken over the planet, and handicapped, via media and blog soapboxes, etc., notions of what might be possible beyond the State in terms of sociopolitical organization.

        It’s like a disease and I often feel like Charlton Heston’s character in The Planet of The Apes. Even in Soylent Green. (You could tell people that they’re eating dead-&-prepared people and they’d look at you funny, despite what you just said, as if you’ve lost your mind.)

    The antonym of fantasy is reality, not fatality. Fatalism is giving up versus altering perception and adapting.

    If a person dreaming of becoming the next Justin beiber is advised to study, work hard, save & invest, they are not a fatalistic downer, but rather a prudent, mature mentor.

    So too the rebuttals to the hopium served up weekly and in fictional books. The facts are quite different than ideals; it doesn’t mean to give up, rather to bear down.

    Btw, anyone notice the drop off in high emotionals looking for assurances that the cv/Vax reign of terror might result in justice? It’s because they’re not interested in discussing broad macro concepts – rather they just needed some soothing talk before bedtime.

    Senior IRGC General Mohammad-Reza Naghdi: Western Culture Is A Path To Racial Extinction, Loss Of National Identity; Europeans Are Not Having Babies, So They Are Forced To ‘Import’ Population From Africa
    #9496 | 03:50
    Source: IRIB Ofogh TV (Iran)

    Deputy IRGC Commander-in-Chief for Coordination General Mohammad-Reza Naghdi said in a March 31, 2022 interview on Ofogh TV (Iran) that Europeans are losing their national identity and are headed for extinction due to the negative population growth in Europe. He said that Western countries preach to other societies how they should conduct themselves, yet Westerners are not getting married or having children. As a result, he said, the West is headed towards extinction and is forced to “import” populations from Africa and other parts of the world. Naghdi gave the example of France’s national soccer and basketball teams, which he said comprise mostly of Africans. He predicted that in a few years the European race will exist only in museums, and that if the African immigrants to Europe embrace the Western lifestyle, they too will be headed for extinction.

    Interviewer: “If I am not mistaken, you expressed an opinion about the French national soccer team. You said that out of the 23 team members, 15 were Africans, and that of the 12 members of their national basketball team, ten were Africans. You inferred that France has no national identity.”

    […]

    Mohammad-Reza Naghdi: “The West delineats a certain lifestyle for [other] societies, and [tells us] how we should live. What has this done to the West itself? It has caused negative population growth, which forces them to import population from abroad. European societies will reach a point, within several decades, where you will have to search for a single person of the European race in France or in England, for example.

    Interviewer: “But many countries do this. In the Persian Gulf, for example, Qatar and the UAE do this.”

    Naghdi: “In this situation, there is no more meaning to national identity. According to statistics, if you hold free elections in England in 2060, a Pakistani or an Indian will be the prime minister, and [British] Parliament will be filled with [immigrants] from Iraq, India, and so on. What will be the meaning of national identity there? There will be no such thing as the English people anymore.

    “This will be a different nation and different society. Some people might interpret what I say to be racial discrimination, but if you care about the value of preserving a nation’s identity and the continued existence of that nation, [know that] the path [the West] outlined for human society will ultimately be the annihilation of future generations.

    “If the people who came from other places embrace this lifestyle as well, they will become extinct too. Humanity as a whole will head toward annihilation. In a few years, you will have to find the European race in museums, and they will tell [about] the people who used to live in Europe with light-colored eyes, blond hair, and white skin, and they spoke in such a manner.

    “This will be the outcome if they continue this process. Is this a desirable process for any society?

    […]

    “The reason that the Africans went there and took over the national teams… They swarmed society as a whole, not just the national sports teams. Those sports teams constitute a reflection of society.”

    Interviewer: “Exactly.”

    Naghdi: “The reason is that within their own societies, those [immigrants] have not embraced the European lifestyle. They gave birth to children, started families, grew in number, and took over that society. These things are addressed to them too. If those Africans embrace the Western lifestyle, they, too, will head towards extinction.

    […]

    “Human society is heading towards extinction. Nobody is willing to get married anymore. They live with dogs, crocodiles, and cats. Nobody is willing to give birth to children, raise them, and build a life. This lifestyle they created… In England, they presented a new cabinet member for loneliness affairs.”

    Jarek: Wisdom from Persia. I doubt the Blacks will become completely European to any great degree, but his point is well taken in general. East Asian societies that have adopted the Western way of Life, are also experiencing an accelerating sterility. Japan and Singapore are in the late stages of this. Signs are also apparent in Korea and China. Probably not India as a whole, but the middle and upper middle classes perhaps? Especially in the diaspora?

    Europeans are going to disappear unless something radically changes. It’s just that simple. Their replacements are such radically different peoples (Black and Brown Muslims) that the idea that European Culture will be maintained is simply fatuous. And in any case, White Leftists hate their own cultures and are aiding in its destruction.

    Turks, at least in Western Turkey and Iranians may be better being closer to Whites racially. Of course this can be nullified by any of the various schools of fanatical Islam.

    • mitchellc April 22, 2022 at 8:04 pm #

      The same old race nostalgia. Why does jim allow you to post here? You don’t add to anything of value to conversations about real events and trends.

      Newsflash: there won’t be any race, any group supremacy. Rather, there will be the creation of the desired servant, a mix of the Middle range Hispanic and asian.

      The two ends of the spectrum, representing ability and criminality, will be eliminated. Whites because they represent a challenge to the new order, and blacks because of their soon to be unaffordable high overhead.

      Perhaps if you focused on the big picture, and then tied back to specific policies like population substitution, you’d add something interesting to say. Otherwise it’s just whining and complaing without any relevant context.

        Mitch: Most of the people don’t get this. Or, like you they do but they don’t care – which is another way of not getting it.

        The Muslims are rioting in Sweden because a politician burned a Koran. Tucker is outraged: Burning a Koran is rude, but they’ll burn building in response?

        The Muslims are correct: If you value yourself and your civilization, you simply don’t allow certain things. The Koran is more important than the buildings. If he was healthy he would know this because he’d feel the same way about the Bible or the Flag or something.

        Next question: Why did we let such healthy but alien people into our Civilization? They’re obviously not going to assimilate to our tawdry, broken down nonsense.

            Why did we let such healthy but alien people into our Civilization? They’re obviously not going to assimilate to our tawdry, broken down nonsense.

            It seems rather obvious that they’re trying to destroy the civilization itself and replace it with something more third-world, the better to continue the exploitation. In the end, there’s only two classes: those who exploit capital to their considerable advantage, and those who are exploited by it; and it’s a lot easier to exploit the underclass if they’re reasonably uniform and undifferentiated, at least from a cultural standpoint. Of course they’ll all celebrate their individual quirks, not realizing that even in their individuality they’re all the same: consumers of and programmed by the overriding mass media super culture that demands nothing less than their total obedience lest they be canceled altogether.

        South Africa is in a state of total collapse. The rioting, looting and arson last summer totally wrecked the country — forever. All the public systems of a modern country built by whites prior to 1990 — roads, electrical power plants, rail, water reservoirs, cities … have deteriorated into dust due to lack of maintenance, investment and upkeep. South Africa, with its poverty, violence and decay, more and more resembles the rest of sub saharan Africa; in a few more generations evidence of any prior European presence will hardly exist.

    It is right and right makes might – especially if it’s something Emperor Vlad wants to do.

    Taking Odessa would also enable him to crush the Ukrainian mafia who are headquartered there. They are the local internationalists behind Zelensky as Gonzalo Lira has made clear.

    ” The Russian nukes in Cuba were a response to US nukes in Turkey. Khrushchev told Kennedy to move the nukes from Russia’s front porch and Kennedy said no. Khrushchev’s response was to place nukes in Cuba.

    Then the United States did remove its missiles in Turkey , which , of course , was what the Russians wanted to begin with. ”

    Fixed that for you.

    ” Khrushchev backed down. ”

    If getting what you wanted to begin with is , ” backing down ” ?

    —-

    Since I’m on the subject , a few days ago someone trotted out the old saw :

    Russia had to withdraw from Afghanistan because the rebels were shooting down Hind helicopters and Frogfoot ground attack aircraft right and left with Stinger misslies.

    Russia ‘s withdrawl from Afghanistan had nothing to do with battlefield losses in Afghanistan , or defeats of any even marginal significance in Afghanistan.

    Russian forces in Afghanistan were called , ” The Limited Contingent ” and in this case that was no euphemism , it was simply the truth.

    In the entire ten years of the Soviet – Afghan War the Soviets never put into Afghanistan even one fifth a force the size of its deployment in East Germany at the same time.

    In this case the Soviet – Afghan War DID mirror The American War in Vietnam.

    The U.S. Armed Forces never suffered any significant defeat in Vietnam ,

    and , with all due respect to grieving relatives , U.S. Armed Forces battlefield losses in Vietnam were quite minimal.

    The United States lost Vietnam — but that had scarce anything , or nothing , to do with what happened on the battlefield.

    The same was true of the Soviet – Afghan War.

    Soviet losses in Afghanistan were Flea – bites on an Elephant.

    Nothing more.

    By the way , I have noticed they have dragged this old saw out of retirement , dusted it off , and are using it again in regards to Ukraine.

    If Russian air losses are really so bad , then why does Russia , ,quite obviously , still have control of the air ?

    Air control is not losing.

    Air control is winning.

      Flea bites you say?
      Death by a thousand cuts or 10,000 fleas.
      After the US handed over stinger missiles the air superiority in Afghanistan disappeared.
      Prior to this event Russian heavy helicopters were mowing down afghani fighters and shortly after the stingers showed up Russia turned tail and ran.

      2+2=4

      Russia would have still been in Afghanistan had those stinger missiles not made it to costly politically, lives lost and treasure shot down to be there.

    “The state has moved into many new areas as they become significant, such as… promoting nuclear power. This expanding role of the state helps prevent the rise of any significant competing forms of social organization…

    The obvious point is that most social activists look constantly to the state for solutions to social problems. This point bears labouring, because the orientation of most social action groups tends to reinforce state power. This applies to most antiwar action too. Many of the goals and methods of peace movements have been oriented around action by the state, such as appealing to state elites and advocating neutralism and unilateralism. Indeed, peace movements spend a lot of effort debating which demand to make on the state: nuclear freeze, unilateral or multilateral disarmament, nuclear-free zones, or removal of military bases. By appealing to the state, activists indirectly strengthen the roots of many social problems, the problem of war in particular…

    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. It is important to avoid this identification, and to carefully distinguish states from people…” ~ Brian Martin, ‘Uprooting War’

    • Disaffected April 22, 2022 at 9:49 pm #

      Good points all. That said, it’s states – aka representative governments – that reserve the right to “Declare War” in the first place, so it’s probably only right that people’s acquiescence or objections be permeated by state perspectives. At least at the start.

          I’m just saying it’s a paradigm thing. People see problems caused by the state and naturally assume that it’s a problem to be solved by the state. Much the same as the eternal D vs. R shell game. The knee jerk reaction – and the one officially promoted of course – is to think, well hell, the D’s fucked shit up again, better switch back the R’s, I guess. The better solution would look something more like people not only refusing to vote, but somehow refusing to let the vote to even take place absent some significant changes. Refuse to pay taxes, refuse to join or support the military, etc. After 2020 especially, surely we need ideas that radical and a mass movement of people to enact them.

      @ The Man They Call Zazelle:

      Nock makes the point that “the State” originated in conquest and confiscation, and that its purpose is the continual exploitation of whatever people it has conquered and battened on.

      The State in its very nature is not “us” or “we the people,” but rather our conquerors. This should be obvious, in that virtually all state actions vis-a-vis its people employ force or the threat of force.

      Nock made a careful distinction between “government” and “the State.” According to his definition, “government” is a social organization whereby the people are governed by their own social and cultural values–social power.

      Nock also made the point that every increase in State power results in a diminution of social power–which was one of the points you made.

      It is absolutely in the interests of the State to eliminate social power altogether, since it is a competing source of power. Hence the drive to destroy all social institutions: marriage, family, parenthood, community, and religion.

      The near-total destruction of the social organization and social power is a feature of State systems in decline/collapse. The people become morally degraded and just all-around bad pieces of work. The reason for this is because a State system in decline/collapse has expanded State power to the point where social power has been completely or almost completely subsumed. And it is of course the enormous expansion of State power that causes the State to end in collapse.

      • KesaAnna April 23, 2022 at 1:06 am #

        I don’t know this Nock guy ,

        ( I’m joking )

        It’s been quite a while since I last said it on CFN ,

        but I’ll say it here again ;

        The preponderance of the evidence indicates that for the lions share of human history ,

        including recorded history , including the advent of civilization ,

        the primary or real government has been the family and religion.

        The idea that the state is the axis around which life revolves is a peculiar aberration of the era of cheap coal and cheap petroleum.

        But then , even if we acquire free energy and perpetual motion machines —

        ” And it is of course the enormous expansion of State power that causes the State to end in collapse. ”

        There is still that very thorny problem ,

        which , so far at least , proved insoluble no less in a world made by hand.

          Anthea would have us go back to exactly the thing that got us here: the “free” market. And the only reason it worked so well was because of Christian virtue and the small town Christian ethos that kept a close watch on people. That and the richness of the empty Land we conquered from the Indians. Neither of those it true anymore.

          You can’t just change one thing and get back. Because the longer for “Back” was itself the result of many causes and conditions.

          The free market isn’t free. Just as a plant needs more than good soil, more than sun, and more than water. It needs all of them, in the right proportions.

          • GreenAlba April 23, 2022 at 12:30 pm #

          • Jarek April 23, 2022 at 12:57 pm #

            Yes, thus National Socialism does not crush the market, but guides it. But what must be prohibited (be it a bad “good” or usury) will be prohibited.

            There’s an art to all this. During very hard times (such as war), expect a black market to rise up. Look the other way officially while keeping an eye on it. Capitalists have tremendous energy, not only at the highest levels but also a the humble level of the “flea market” (interesting word, eh?). Use that or in this case, allow it for the good of all. It’s human, it’s natural! But that’s not to say it’s always good. It bears watching….

          • JohnAZ April 23, 2022 at 1:08 pm #

            The main problem with any socialism is that the controlling entity, the government is inherently greedy and evil.

            Some people say the ideal government is a benevolent dictatorship.

            Trying to find one is the impossible task.

            Any system focusing economic power into fewer hands is bad news. Entropy. The more diffuse a system is, the better able to endure shocks. Right out of TLE.

          • Jarek April 23, 2022 at 1:26 pm #

            Yet the ethos of Capitalism is focused on the individual making as much money as possible. Later in its more sophisticated form, they ally and form Corporations and practice group warfare against other Corporations. Now they have allied into the Funds, and are practicing war against whole nations and race and our very Civilization.

            No, John. Stability must be enforced from the top. China will win because they are National Socialist now. It’s obviously not Communist anymore, right? You get that, right? But it’s not our system either. It’s something different. It’s National Socialism.

            Our National Socialism would be less like an Insect Colony. Why? Because we are more individuated than the East Asians.

            That being said, they already let the Capitalists wreak havoc by creating the “ghost cities”. Utterly ridiculous. You have to be ready to come down on the greed heads at any time.

        Indeed, if many people (depending, naturally, on their place and time) actually take the time to think critically and deeply about their sociopolitical realities, it would seem that they inevitably arrive at similar conclusions.

        “The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself… Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable…” ~ H.L. Mencken

    “Lastly, Gandhi developed the concept of nonviolent revolution, to be seen not as a programme for the seizure of power, but as a programme for transforming relationships. The concept sits neatly with the observation of the German anarchist, Gustav Landauer (1870-1919): ‘The state is a condition, a certain relationship between beings, a mode of behaviour; we destroy it by contracting other relationships, by behaving differently.’

    In its first decade several themes, theories, actions, all distinctly libertarian, began to come to the fore and were given intellectual expression by the American anarcho-pacifist, Paul Goodman (1911-72) (36): anti-militarism, the rediscovery of community, community action, radical decentralism, participatory democracy, the organisation of the poor and oppressed inter-racially, and the building of counter-culture and counter-institutions (such as new co-ops, collectives and communes).

    The collapse of the New Left coincided with the exhaustion of the less well-publicised Sarvodaya (welfare of all) movement for nonviolent revolution in India, led by Vinoba Bhave and Jayaprakash Narayan (1902-1979), which had sought through voluntary villagisation of land to realise Gandhi’s dream of an India of village republics. The implication of Sarvodaya for the subject of this book is brought out by the statement of Jayaprakash Narayan: ‘In a Sarvodaya world society the present nation states have no place.’ ” ~ Geoffrey Ostergaard, ‘Resisting The Nation State’

      The obvious counter-argument being that, is replacing the nation-state with a supra-nationalist global-state an improvement in any sense whatsoever? Indeed, wouldn’t that just be an exponential amplification of all the problems we already have, given the rather obvious exponential mathematical problems already posed by the runaway exponential growth economic and population paradigm?

      Doubling down on past and current failures would seem to be just a better paved road to perdition, although that seems to be our intention from the start.

      • The Man They Call Zazelle April 23, 2022 at 7:59 am #

        I’m unsure that a ‘supranationalist global state’ is what they had in mind (What gives you that idea?) and suspect it’s more along the lines of this, or at least its spirit:

        “To empower the powerless and create ‘a million villages’ to replace nation-states is the only safe future for the preservation of the biosphere. Let interdependence and personal responsibility be our aims.” ~ Bill Mollison, ‘Permaculture: A Designer’s Manual, second ed.’

        In any case, it really seems to boil down to a sense of ethics and its practice. If we look at the system today, it’s about the opposite of ethics on a myriad of levels.

          Didn’t mean to imply that’s what you had in mind, but I can’t help but thinking that’s what would be implemented anyway. We’ve been conditioned very effectively to love hierarchies, and of course hierarchies have grown to love that arrangement as well. Who wouldn’t?

          @ Zazelle:

          These ideas are excellent. I think what we often overlook when we recoil from State systems in disgust and horror is that it is not enough to simply be opposed to it. We must create alternative systems.

          The main problem you run into with the creation of alternative systems is that the State is vehemently opposed to them and that much of the State’s organization is always aimed at making rival organizations either economically impossible or explicitly illegal.

          The chief way to make rival systems uneconomical is to make land ownership difficult or impossible for the average person. An independent economic basis for a community pretty much requires land. (Henry George had much to say about this.)

          The Amish/Mennonites have been extraordinarily successful at creating the alternative economy that is the needed underpinning for alternative cultures and communities. On the other hand, it is a common observation of those who have a lot of interaction and dealings with the Amish, that they are much more dependent on the “English” world that most of us think.

          Another difficulty for those of us who would like to create communities that would be equally resilient is that many of the cultural requirements stick in our craws. In my case, I do moderately creative work that is highly ornamental and colorful–which doesn’t fit well with being “plain” and wouldn’t be allowed. I might be frustrated in such a setting–or I might simply have found another creative outlet.

          For example, has anyone here ever considered that their interactions with others can and should be spiritual medicinal projects of a sort–or maybe just working to heal past wrongs we’ve done. This is creative work, though it’s too bad that the palette is invisible and the canvas won’t hold still.

          In any case, I suspect that creating an economically independent (more or less) community/culture really requires some very difficult restraints–and that attempting to dispense with any of them would be done at our peril.

            Soap-making is on my to-do list, but I lean toward more plain unscented clear glycerine and/or hypoallergenic types. But your stuff looks great and I wonder how you do the leaf-wrapped motifs and so on. Can soap be molded that ornately? How do you get it out of the molds? Does it get stuck sometimes?

            Anyway, the State seems like a bit of a monoculture, if with different flavours, that consumes out-of-scale energies and materials for little or diminishing relative gain or benefit and sprays chemicals on everything and is increasingly contending with ‘superbugs’, ‘superweeds’ and serious energy and material, etc., loses.

            It’s unsustainable.

            Now would seem a good time for many, if not all people to ‘seize the day’ and maybe go peer-to-peer/’FLOSS-inspired’ (Free, Libre, Open Source Software) and leave those who want unsolicited coercive, unethical, war-mongering quasi-or-pseudo-leaders/hierarchies and whatnot to their own devices/evolutions/adaptations.

            Maybe weaken the systems by simply leaving them and creating superior ones…

            Like a better soap to, say, Pears that, since being taken over apparently by Unilever has seen its quality plummet.

            “Bill Mollison: You see, the worst thing about permaculture is that it’s extremely successful, but it has no center, and no hierarchy.

            Alan Atkisson: So that’s worst from whose perspective?

            Bill: Anybody that wants to extinguish it. It’s something with a million heads. It’s a way of thinking which is already loose, and you can’t put a way of thinking back in the box.

            Alan: Is it an anarchist movement?

            Bill: …You won’t get cooperation out of a hierarchical system. You get enforced directions from the top, and nothing I know of can run like that. I think the world would function extremely well with millions of little cooperative groups, all in relation to each other.”

            @ Zazelle:

            Soapmaking is fascinating and kind of “sciency.” You can find basic recipes on Soap Queen, which I think is run by Brambleberry, a good company for buying soapmaking supplies from.

            To create your own recipe, have a look at soapcalc.net, under their Recipes tab. It will tell you the properties that each oil give to soap. After you input the oils you want to use, it will kick out a recipe telling you how much lye you need.

            Also, regardless of how you feel about Facebook, joining the Facebook soapmaking groups are the best way to learn about soapmaking. There are hundreds of them.

            The leaf soaps are made with silicone molds, the best kind for getting highly detailed impressions. The trick to getting soaps out of the molds is to put them in the freezer (after they’ve been in the molds for about 12 hours). For highly ornate molds, it’s best to freeze overnight. Once you establish a routine that works, and stick to it, you won’t have any trouble getting the soap out of the molds.

            What’s really fun is working with the colors to create swirl patterns. (I do in-the-pot swirls, the easiest kind. There are lots of tutorials and videos showing how to do this swirl.) Most people use mica colors, and probably the best place to buy these is from Mad Micas.

            Soap shampoos are fun and really fascinating. Liz Ardlady’s shampoo bar recipe is generally considered the best out there. Here’s her recipe: http://lizardladysoapinfo.blogspot.com/2014/06/so-you-want-to-make-bar-of-shampoo.html

            If you look at the sidebar on Liz’s page, there is a link to her conditioner recipe, which is super easy. Plus you can add stuff to it, such as Panthenol, which is great stuff.

            Some people can’t use soap shampoos, but if they work your you, they are miraculous–makes your hair feel like it did when you were ten years old. They are excellent for people with scalp conditions. I sold a bar to a very elderly white-haired lady who asked if I had anything that would help her dry, scaly scalp, which was also troubled with sores. She came back two weeks later to tell me her scalp problems were cured. (Commercial shampoos are harsh detergents that dry you scalp and give you eczema and all kinds of other problems.)

            I make a liquid shampoo using Liz’s recipe, by using KOH instead of NaOH. https://feltmagnet.com/crafts/How-To-Make-Homemade-Liquid-Shampoo-Using-Liz-Ardladys-Famous-Shampoo-Bar-Recipe

            I also make a facial soap using Liz’s recipe, using KOH, but leaving it undiluted to make a Beldi-type soft-gel soap (in a jar). I think the Beldi-type soaps are the very best for skin. They will usually clear up acne. This is my recipe. You can see that I went all-out on the fine cosmetic oils and the essential oils that benefit skin, like frankincense and carrot seed. https://bellatory.com/hygiene-grooming/HOW-TO-MAKE-THE-ULTIMATE-FACIAL-SOAP

            A lot of people add herbal extracts to their Beldi soaps, so there is much fun to be had in trying different herbs and resins. I had a fad for awhile of adding gromwell, honeysuckle flowers, and other stuff I’ve forgotten.

            Sorry to get carried away, but this stuff is endlessly fascinating.

        Sounds to me as if he’s saying Alec Baldwin’s daughter opined on the Depp trial and says she’s not down with the man hate, meaning, she’s probably on Depp’s side.

          Correct.
          “The thing is, I know women who are exactly like this. They are manipulative and cold and they use their very womanhood to play victim and turn the world against the man because we live in a society where it’s cool to say men are all the worst and blah blah f**kity blah.

          ‘Men can experience abuse too and this absolute disaster of a human being is a terrible person and I hope Johnny gets his reputation and his life back. And I hope he’s in like five Pirates movies.”

        Dang, that anarchy discussion was some awesome sauce – just what this site needs.

        What I like about the old school social analyses was the assumption that pointing out the obvious was the prize.

        Perhaps no one considered that the power dynamic is as fundamental to nature as earth, wind and fire.

        Remove the lion and a new predator will arise; kill all the Jews, and a new clan of educated scribes will emerge.

        The antidote to corporatism is not communism. Both result in the merging of state interests where Rockefeller is no different than Lenin.

        So, what is the answer? Surprise, there is no “solution” because the other forces of nature are birth and death.

        Now, is this fatalism or realism? Do you plop down in a huff because you realize you won’t live forever? Or do you become realistic and focus on maximizing what you happen to enjoy?

        That’s my theme here: be smart, figure out the game determine the odds, and play. Don’t complain, don’t engage in fruitless debates over invented concepts like right and wrong.

        The facts are were just some intelligent apes that exploited 200m years of stored solar energy that in turn enabled us to engage in the fantasy of being somehow unique.

        But just 3 days without a bath or meal reduces men to his native state, so don’t be fooled by appearances. Understand what motivates leadership to fight for the last remaining privileges in rapidly approaching scarcity.

        • Disaffected April 23, 2022 at 10:57 am #

          Agee for the most part. However, I’d caution that there’s a fine line between fatalism and realism, with the general tendency being to blur that line until one no longer knows that it even exists. And I think the idea of “fruitless debates” lies in the mind of the beholder. People have all kinds of reasons for engaging in such, so I don’t think it’s useful to just dismiss them out of hand. People are feeling their way from one long established societal paradigm to an as yet un- or ill-defined other, and a certain amount of coping through “fruitless debates” will be part of that process. Not sure any amount of realism will prepare most for their first shot of three days without a meal and a shower with the additional realization that that will be the “new normal.” That’s gonna be too much for most.

            That’s the challenge, then: to retain our humanity in difficult conditions. It is good to remember that the humane life of cooperation and care for others is perhaps our chief evolutionary advantage. Morality and ethics are the basis for economic success.

            It’s also good to remember that extraordinary cultures originally arose from a bunch of savages huddling around open fires wearing animal skins. Latent within them was the Hagia Sophia and St. Peter’s, the prose of Shakespeare, the music and art of…well, our musicians and artists. And science and mathematics, besides.

          I tend to think Mr Mitchell doesn’t want people to talk about right and wrong because he very much doesn’t want right and wrong to be a thing. Out of sight, out of mind. Which is actually quite childish. As is, possibly, the constant petulant demand to only talk about what Mr Mitchell wants talked about. And that’s before the worst of the new normal is even here.

          I dare say if someone who didn’t believe in right and wrong poked out Mr Mitchell’s eyes and left him alive but pretty useless and dependent, he’d revised his views PDQ. Or maybe he’d just smile and say ‘fair cop guv – ya win some, ya lose some …’. But I’m not over-concerned about Mr Mitchell. A world of Mr Mitchells is not one that appeals to me very much, so I’m happy enough to cede my place to someone more desperate to hang around just for the sake of hanging around.

            It’s just that, as regards ‘the trick’, for me the game’s not worth the candle. Mr Kunstler’s WMBH would be worth surviving for (I won’t survive anyway, but it’s not about me), but the world you’re willing to accept – transhuman drones and top-dog psychos – isn’t a world I’d remotely try to accede to.

      After a lifetime of practicing Odinism, Priest Stephen McNallen “came out” as a White Nationalist. Why? Because there is no more “de facto” any more. We are second class citizens in our own nations. Whatever else it is, a religion must serve. And this one is ours and ours alone.

      More, Odinism or “Asatru” had become infested with people like the ones in the video you posted, who acted like they were the real thing, and that the “racists” were the perverters. American Odinism split down the middle decades ago. There can be no parley between the two parties. They have an utterly different vision, wanting to make a Tribal God into a Universal One for everyone – as if we don’t already have that in spades.

      Same thing has happened in American Indian circles. Whites are welcome at Pow Wows as public events. But if they show a deeper interest, they will at some point be gently (or otherwise) shown the door. There’s no need for rudeness – except with these types.

        I doubt Odin is taking anyone’s calls these days. Probably blowing his wad at the craps table in Valhalla with a valkyrie on each arm. Wakes up each morning with a pocket freshly refilled with cash and two new valkyries.

      Hi Disaffected,
      “All well-supported and documented”?
      Nope.
      Not one shred of evidence to back this and plenty of BS spread.
      Just ONE Example: “CIA Director Burns’ statement about Russia’s possible use of tactical nuclear weapons is absurd.”

      Just as a reminder: Putin has made quite clear that he is willing to use nuclear weapons if he feels that Russia is threatened by the West in his current endeavour–making noises about the West being too supportive of Ukraine as a trigger for such use.
      So, that statement from the website “briefing”, given above is when put in its historical context of statements made by Putin, is A grade our BS.

      • MaryQueen April 23, 2022 at 3:13 pm #

        US: We’re going to take over Ukraine and it’s going to join NATO. Then we will point our weapons at Russia.

          • Disaffected April 23, 2022 at 9:12 pm #

            It’s very tiring. I’m beginning to think mitchelc is right. The disinformation campaigns are so thick on almost any issue that’s newsworthy right now that it might just be a fool’s errand to have any opinion about any of it at all. He calls that realism, but I still maintain that it’s at the very least a large part fatalism as well, which is actually just defeatism. But I dunno…

            But as to this one example: BOTH sides are gonna claim false flag on the part of the other if an NBC event takes place in Ukraine, and accordingly, BOTH sides are going to use it as an excuse to escalate further. Who can possibly know who’s telling the truth in that case, or indeed, that they aren’t BOTH lying and using it all as a joint excuse to “escalate and eliminate,” which might have been the plan all along?

            I certainly can’t eliminate that possibility, and although I don’t want to think it’s true, none of that’s going to matter in the least if that’s what’s actually going on. Bottom line is that all of this global conflict bullshit we’re seeing unfold right now could just as easily be another ConVid19 ploy to distract us all from the fact that drastic population reductions by the globalists using various means might just be what’s really going on here. All of which makes my head hurt to think about, as it should, so I think I’ll need another beer or two about now to let that sink in.

            And to add: if any or all of that is true, then we are all TRULY FUCKED! And that’s nothing to dismiss lightly. Now there’s some realism for ya!

            And Disaffected–
            We have history–we have books written from reputable academic presses that offer you a basis for grounding your thinking in history. This is not something that people here, including JHK Admin want to do much of, because historical analysis works steadily against the Putin Russian narrative that propagandist sites currently offer.

            The problem with a lot that is written is that it is not grounded in history; this is not accidental–Putin’s Russia is not interested in history–Putin has made it clear in the philosophers that he cites with approval that history is a mugs game–Russia is eternal–living in the now with a history that can be fitted to fulfil whatever needs Putin’s state requires of it. History is just something the can be moulded to suit Putin’s purposes–so, Kyiv becomes the cradle of Russia a thousand years ago, centuries before the Duchy of Muscovy makes a deal to support Khmelnyts’kyi’s recruiting of the Tartars against the Poles and what Muscovy saw as a permanent subjugation of the area to the tsar. Under the analysis offered by JHK Admin, Ukraine is part of Russia–but you might as well say it is part of the greater Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The difference today is is that the Poles and Lithuanians don’t say that Ukraine belongs to them! But then again, both the Poles and the Lithuanians KNOW what to expect from the Russians. As do the Ukrainians.

            @ hustled enough:

            Meh. The history of Russia may or may not have some relevance to the Ukraine war. What definitely does have relevance is practical, objective reality.

            For Russia the issues involved are starkly existential. To allow its avowed enemies to place military installations directly on its borders, or to allow them to deprive Russia of its deep-water ports ensures invasion and conquest by these hostile forces.

            No nation can allow this. It would amount to nothing less than an engraved invitation to its enemies to come on in and conquer the nation.

            To argue that Russia should not take whatever measures are necessary to ensure its continued existence is pretty much the same thing as arguing that Russia has no right to exist.

            If I had a Mexican drug cartel at the edge of my town, and they amassing arms and ammunition with the intent to attack, and they were also attempting to close off the roads, and they had been shelling the homes of my near neighbors for eight years, it would be a reasonable response if the residents of my town decided to clean them out.

    If you believe something deeply, you also want to enact it, or act it out – almost like a sacrament. Thus say you believe that race is only skin deep. And thus there really is only one race, the Human Race. You want to show that belief to a world that doesn’t believe it, or at least doesn’t act on it stuck in conventional belief systems or ways of life. Thus you are driven to inter-racial sex, marriage, having inter-racial children or adoption them as a sacred act. This is a big part of the religion of late Liberalism, or the Religion of Wokeness. Putting minorities ahead of Whites isn’t enough – you must make it even more personal.

            @ Jarek:

            I read some of Alice Bailey’s books back in the 70s and don’t remember much about them. As best I can recall, they were mostly bullshit. I can’t see much use in them. I think they are in some way promotions of the NWO. Lucis Press is mixed up with the UN in some way too.

            I actually worked for Lucis Press very briefly in the 70s. I did not dislike anyone there in particular, other than my immediate supervisor–who also didn’t like me. He was stone deaf and worked there for free, which I think was the only reason they kept him on.

            The entire staff began the day with a group meditation, which I was never invited to join–though one guy who was hired after me was invited to join almost immediately. I think the decision was made very early on that I was not going to fit in around there, though I don’t know why. I like to think I was not satanic enough to suit them.

            According to Alice Bailey’s autobiography, her husband was a minister who was abusive and left her with a young (and sick) child to raise alone–and a bunch of debts. She worked at some kind of low-paying factory job as a young single mother (I can’t remember doing what).

      I agree, they’re very competent! I’ve said before that I expect my mortgaged daughter and my mortgaged nieces and nephews to have to hand over their property in due course, in exchange for cancelling their mortgage debt, when ‘they’ collapse the economy.

      I’ve also said I don’t think fully paid-up home owners will be safe either. You only have to present someone with a tax bill of whatever sort that they can’t pay (because you’ve cancelled their money) and their assets can be demanded in lieu I’m sure they’ve got it all covered. I expect eventually there will be a drone to send round instead of the bailiff.

    Black Granny was outraged at the thought that her four year old grandchild MIGHT have taken a sip. Why? Anyway, she had to be punished. You like it? You drink the whole thing. The mother just watched!

    White kids do stupid things like this. As Robert Bly said, it’s a very bad idea to have kids trying to initiate themselves into Manhood. In the old British Isles, a young boy would be invited into the pub to drink half a mug and then sent out. When he’s older, a full one. Like that.

    Not even an issue in Southern Europe: the kids grow up with wine at dinner. But of course, the boys still have to be initiated into manhood another way – and it’s not happening. Girls into womanhood, not happening. So they do it themselves, in all kinds of stupid ways.

    Gang beatdowns are a classic initiation and bonding ritual. Of a new member or the group beating an innocent. Hardcore Black gangs are rumored to insist on the pledge killing a White person.

    Anyway, one expects more from parents, especially grandmothers…..

    Anglin on the Weapons

    There’s no real reason to send them to the doomed frontlines of the Donbass, because those troops are all either going to surrender or die. It would make more sense for the government of the Ukraine – to sell those weapons on the black market.

    They could also give them to the fleeing Azov troops, who are headed into Poland and probably Western Europe, to create a “white supremacist terrorist movement.” Most of Azov has left Mariupol, fleeing through civilian aid corridors when the situation was clearly hopeless. Large numbers of them were outside of Mariupol anyway. The fact that they are going to end up as WHITE TERRORISM in Europe is just so obvious it makes you sick.

    That is of course exactly what happened with ISIS – Western intelligence went in and trained all of these terrorist forces, then they started blowing up things in the West. Some people claim that was accidental “blowback,” others claim it was on purpose, but it doesn’t really matter. Even if it was just a stupid accident, ongoing terrorism in Europe serves the purposes of the security state and the anti-freedom agenda, as well as just creating a general “state of fear” among the people, which serves social engineering goals.

    Are people other than yours truly saying this thing – that after the Ukraine is defeated, there is going to be a neo-Nazi terror army operating in Europe? Well, I’ve heard the total bros at The Grayzone say it (site, YouTube).

    Thankfully on Friday, Tucker Carlson had on Colonel Douglas MacGregor to say something similar – we do not know where these weapons are going, and there is a very good chance that these weapons will end up in the “wrong hands.” The Tucker segment (at the top of the page!) was good all around, with MacGregor also hitting on the point that the cynical Western establishment is “fighting to the last Ukrainian” in a war against Russia that doesn’t even have anything to do with the Ukrainian people – but we’ve really been over and over those points, haven’t we? This “where are the weapons actually going tho????” topic is something we haven’t talked enough about.

    Jarek: The Azovs have fought ferociously, holding off the the Russians and even the Chechen terror troops for weeks. This is a project that has paid off. People on the right are too stupid to see that they aren’t National Socialists. And even more bizarrely, the Left accepts them as the same cartoon Nazis but have been emotionally engineered into worshipping them!

    So as Anglin said, why not take this show on the road? Give some of the weapons to the fleeing Azovs and then use as them as heavy muscle in support of the mostly amateur Muslim Jihadis. I’m afraid Anglin’s old meme of “White Shariah” is going to come true in a very bad way.

      The regime officially stated that they have no idea where the weapons are going. I’m of the mind that their terror group creation charade won’t be as easy to pull off this time around. The credibility of the West is just not there and over half of the world is seeking to distance themselves from it. Not to say there won’t be incidences but I believe the regimes of the West will be squarely blamed. Plus so many people distrust the regimes compared to like 10 years ago.

      • thwack April 23, 2022 at 4:13 pm #

        The weapons are going into fake “bunkers”, and then the Ukrainians are alerting the Russians who then bomb the empty “bunkers”.

        The Uks then claim the weapons were destroyed, while they sell them on the black market, and at the same time request more weapons from the West.

        rinse and repeat…

    The net is drawing tighter around the Clinton campaign. An article in The Spectator:

    “These vigorous efforts to hide communications tell us something important. They point to hidden evidence that the claimants were involved in a well-planned, well-financed, and multi-pronged effort to create a false narrative that Donald Trump was secretly working with the Kremlin to win the presidency. If the FBI or CIA was willing to launch a full-scale investigation, then the Clinton team would leak that to the media, ideally in the weeks before the 2016 election. The Democrats continued that effort after Trump’s election to hobble his effectiveness in office.”

    A Queen Bee is perhaps a good analogy, but given the mood of the large majority of the inhabitants of the colony my suggestion is that the Queen Bee has been kidnapped and is hostage to an evil parasite cartel. I personally think the Queen Bee would have prefered negotiations. Some concessions would have likely allowed the colony a continuing foothold of some sort in the Eurasian breadbasket. Given the situation that seems unlikely now. A sting is not a light thing. I am in sympatico with Kari Lake and believe its time to start blowing up the honeycomb of tunnels at the southern border. We can also easily coax the Central Americans into doing our dirty work as you say lol. It’s all simply a matter of sophisticated diplomacy and ameniable incentives.

    EC President Ursula von der Leyen revealed that every EU member state would be required to adopt EU Digital Covid Certificates, a digital health passport issued to those with proof of vaccination, a negative PCR test, or proof of recovery from Covid-19. While the validity period for such certificates was due to lapse at the end of June, the EC is not only renewing it another year, but making it mandatory for all 27 EU countries from July 1.

      Slugoon: Although I wasn’t sceptical enough of the EU’s motives generally, I think the only think I’ve been right about all along was that the Tory Brexiteers (maybe not Farage – I don’t know how genuine he is) were all just into a different kind of globalism because they want to be top dog operating from the City of London without the EU telling them what to do. I’ve been following the MHRA stuff that UK Column have been doing and the MHRA is fashioning itself into a global hub for fast-track ‘vaccines’ and other sci-fi horrors. ‘Enabling’ is the new buzz-word, replacing ‘regulating’, which used to the their job. I think that’s why the UK didn’t mind being kicked out of the European Medicines Agency. The UK is aiming to be at the centre of the global biosurveillance dystopia, from what I’ve seen.

    Been looking into the WEF to try to understand what it is all about.

    Remember James Bond since Daniel Craig took over.

    First bad guys were Un designated but Mr. White was a member. They killed Vesper.

    In the second, the group was Quantum, a global group into everything, specifically trying to buy up all the water in Bolivia. Members were all influential plutocrats.

    The third,Skyfall, sorta left the genre.

    Spectre brought it all together though, big global group of plutocrats trying to run the world in cyberspace.

    Bond was fighting a fictional version of the WEF. The little I have found has shown that this organization is a group of plutocrats trying to convert the world to a non democratic form where the elites run everything. This is the Great Reset, a book by the founder Krause Schwab.

    They are into everything, everything. Names such as Prince Andrew, Bill Gates, Putin, Xi, Un, Prince Charles, Greta Thunberg are involved at one time or the other. Xi, the CCP, sees themselves as primary drivers of the world economic domination.

    Another fiction account is Tom Clancy’s Sum of All Fears, where a Neo Nazi group tries to start WW3 by getting the US and Russia to destroy each other with their organization taking over the world.

    Believers in the role of entropy in economics better be scared of this group. The idea that a group of Bill Gates types can run the world is catastrophic and disgusting.

    I will be continuing to read up on and watch The KWAK brothers on You Tube.

    I have been looking for the group that is destroying bipartisan republicanism (small r) in the USA. Maybe I have found them.

        I am a leader of the fact that the two party system is no longer existent.

        D=R right now in the US. The GOP rejecting Trump in protection of the Deep State was a catastrophic event.

        The Deep State runs the US right now as a model of what the global plutocrats want to drop on the world.

        No democracy, plutocrats, redistribution not only of the wealth but also populations. Just what the Deep State is pulling in the US right now.

        I will be looking into links between the East Coast Mob, the cartels and the WEF.

        BTW, is Ukraine just the WEF playing both sides against the middle

        Sorta like Sum of All Fears.

      My view is that one of our purposes here on earth is to do work within our sphere to recreate the beauties and glories of heaven here on earth.

      This is done in many different ways. In the arts, we create beautiful things. Things are supposed to be beautiful, including all mundane and utilitarian things: clothing, architecture, furnishings, perfumes, etc.–as they are in heaven. Music is supposed to be beautiful–as it is in heaven. The sciences are supposed to be the highest refinement of our understanding of the material world so that, as in heaven, all “things” are sacramental and objects of reverence.

      In human relations the goal is the highest refinement of intellection and love. “The work,” in this area, for we ordinary folk, is to express these things in our interactions with others, along with the avoidance of negative actions and emotions. Do primitive societies have these (Christian) values? I don’t know for sure, since I have no direct knowledge of them. They are also doubtless highly variable, as well as a little short in the “intellection” department. What little I do know of such societies suggests to me that they are/were no better than most people today in “advanced” societies. In other words, they’re just people. Maybe not always either remarkably good or remarkably bad, but sometimes both.

      In primitive cultures these refinements exist only in the most rudimentary form and are undeveloped. In the modern world they are largely subverted, and in the best of times the masses are systematically denied access to them.

      Nevertheless, it is better for these refinements to exist than for them not to exist. They are self-justifying, just as heaven itself is self-justifying: good.

    Looks like Bill Murray is the latest Hollywood celeb to fall into the cancel culture crosshairs. Could be castration for him! OH, THE HORROR!

    **********

    New details have reportedly come out regarding Bill Murray’s “inappropriate” behavior on the set of Being Mortal. The film was suspended indefinitely earlier this week and was meant to be Aziz Ansari’s first directorial feature. Now its status is up in the air, and many are trying to find out what happened.

    According to Page Six, the complaint against Murray stems from some unwanted touching with female cast and crew members. The source clarifies that his conduct was not legally crossing a line, but some felt he had gone a bit further than they were comfortable with on-set.

    “He was very hands-on touchy, not in any personal areas, but put an arm around a woman, touched her hair, pulled her ponytail – but always in a comedic way,” the source alleged to Page Six. “It is a fine line and everybody loves Bill, but while his conduct is not illegal, some women felt uncomfortable and he crossed a line.”

    Another source confirmed these details, adding that Murray took his single status to heart on set. The source said that Murray “loves women and loves to flirt, he enjoys poetry and romance, he’s always flirting, but it is always couched in comedy. It isn’t clear if he crossed a line.”

      Man the youger generations have turned into light-loafer complaint factiories.

      They literally said he didn’t do anything across the line or illegal in terms of harrassment, but still, it was somehow offensive enough to put an entire film in jeapordy. These folks don’t see the big picture for anyone but themselves and their ability to derail and generate headlines with their name in it.

      To find Bill Murray’s personality offensive is to discount his entire life and career before. He’s always been aloof, dismissive and somewhat offensive. That’s why he’s funny.

      Granted, I’d imagine he can be a massive dick if he doesn’t want to be around you, but so what? He’s Bill Murray, and he knows it.

        Apparently everyone at the event was pretty well lubricated. There were witnesses to the stolen kiss, which was described as a peck on the cheek but characterized by Federal Prosecutors as a violent sexual assault on all women everywhere.

        At this point I suggest the USA start over and kick all hetero white men out of the armed forces, then recruit a cadre of transvestites, lesbians, homosexuals,black women and illegal aliens. Now there’s General Milley’s New Model Army.

          I don’t know if anyone here has ever been around people who kept a pair of spider monkeys as pets, but their whole existence revolves around the male chasing the female for sex, as the female is in constant flight.

          This is a good analogy of what it’s like to be a young, attractive female in today’s world–and probably yesterday’s world as well. It’s annoying.

          On the other hand, it’s merely nature, and one must accept it.

          But it seems to me that the whole problem could easily be resolved by ordinary good manners. The main problem with the modern world is that good manners have fallen by the wayside. E.g., it would be bad manners to stare at someone’s tits. It is equally bad manners to display your tits in a suggestive manner so as to invite stares. It is bad manners to come up and smooch on someone.

          While it sounds like the Major General was ill-mannered, it’s hard to blame him in a world that is awash in bad manners, probably while attending a party where everyone else was being ill-mannered.
