Dirty Secrets

“The average Democrat knows the Biden family is profoundly corrupt and they simply don’t care…. Sam Harris spoke for all of them when he said it wouldn’t matter if Hunter’s laptop was packed w/pictures of dead kids.” — MartyrMade on Twitter

     This is the dirty secret of our time: the device that the Woke / Progressive elite used to finally get rid of Donald Trump — Covid-19 — shoved them over a cliff Wile E. Coyote style. And now, as they freefall off that cliff, the supposed antidote to Covid-19 — getting vaccinated — is blowing up in their faces, again, Wile E. Coyote style. The elite now have to wake up every day and wonder if the vaccines they rushed to get will end up killing them prematurely. This is what has finally driven them crazy. And, of course, crazy people will do crazy things: like destroy their own country.

    I decided early-on to not get vaccinated for a simple reason: as the vaxx program got up to speed in the late winter and spring of 2021, reports came out that the spike protein in it attacked the endothelial lining of the blood vessels and led to unusual blood-clotting. As someone who had bypass surgery some years earlier, that was all I needed to hear. This was before any Censorship Industrial Complex formed to attack “misinformation.” The news was still getting out.

    By then, Mr. Trump was out, too, deposed in a janky election rigged with Covid-19 ballot “innovations” that made fraud easy. He was replaced by a fake chief executive too impotent to even campaign, but useful as a front for the gigantic “security” bureaucracy that was actually running things. This naturally raises the question: what exactly is the relationship between the political elite and this security state?

    The elite are the useful idiots of the security state. They enable it and protect it with their divisive antics. The dirty secret of the security state is that it’s not about the security of the state, that is, of the nation known as the USA. It’s about the security of the people running the security state, the agency heads and their officers in the Intel Community and all its spinoffs, the State Department, the Justice Department, and the Defense Department and their accomplices in Congress and the federal judiciary.

    What does this security state need protection from? From accounting for all its prior cumulative crimes against the nation. These crimes slowly accreted over the decades after the Cold War and then blossomed in 2016 — slowly, and then all at once — when the security state was rocked by the election loss of its avatar, Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton had many crimes of her own to conceal, most of them committed with the help of the security state, such as the Uranium One grift, the Skolkovo transfer of US computer tech to Russia, and the Clinton Foundation’s financial escapades following the 2010 Haiti earthquake, to name a few biggies.

     The person who beat Mrs. Clinton had averred publicly and shockingly to her crimes during the campaign, going so far as to label her “Crooked Hillary.” That is why the Russia Collusion hoax became the centerpiece of security state harassment during Mr. Trump’s term in office. The Democratic Party was enlisted as the praetorian guard for the security state. The public had to be conditioned to believe any number of things that were the opposite of true.

     Like myriad institutions in recent decades, the Democratic Party had come to be dominated by women. Women, being hard-wired for safety-seeking, were easily manipulated by the security state into an hysteria fixated on Donald Trump, who was made to represent everything that seemed unsafe. They gave the game away on Mr. Trump’s inauguration day with their women’s march that featured thousands wearing the emblematic “pussy hats.” Message: don’t think you can have your wicked way with this!

     The hysteria hasn’t let up since then, and now that Mr. Trump is resurging from a thousand attempts to kill him off like some implacable axe-murderer in a horror movie, the corps of useful idiots is showing signs of nervous exhaustion. The Democratic Party’s front-man, “Joe Biden” (or the claque behind him backstage), has screwed the pooch on just about every matter of vital public interest at home and abroad, and now this president stands revealed as the head of a racketeering operation that specialized in bribery. Yet, oddly, it is Mr. Trump who has been fed into the cogs of the judiciary on an unending set of Mickey Mouse charges. There’s a pretty fair possibility that none of that will work.

     The Democrats must suspect this, and their nemesis has declared his intentions for a return to power pretty clearly: fire all the seditionists in the security state, pardon all the people on the Right who were unjustly prosecuted, and commence some righteous prosecutions against people who actually deserve it. Thus, the Left plunges ever-deeper into mental illness — celebrating it at every opportunity and even shoving it in America’s face, Joker-style, in defiance: Here, have another drag queen….

     A big part of the Left’s mental illness is the inability to even notice their own self-destructive trajectory. There’s a way out for them but it’s pretty drastic. That would be turning to RFK, Jr. for leadership. Trouble is, Mr. Kennedy intends to go after the Democrats’ patron, the security state itself, which he’s publicly blamed for the deaths of his father and uncle. Bobby Kennedy also happens to be an enemy of the US public health agencies and especially a critic of the Covid-19 vaccines that the Left has hung its identity on. They still can’t admit that getting vaxxed and boosted was a tragic mistake.

     But an election contest between RFK, Jr. and Donald Trump would be a most salutary exercise for our country. Both of them want to dismantle the overgrown surveillance apparatus and severely reform the agencies under the executive branch. That is, they are both intent on disarming the security state and the Censorship Industrial Complex it spawned. They are both against the stupid Neo-con wars. Trump versus RFK, Jr. would bring the people of this country together and refocus the nation’s attention on things that matter. It would also be the Baby Boomers’ last stand.

    Speaking of “dirty secrets” Chicago is getting their new mayor today. That city is rife of political corruption, and now they have the illegal immigrant debacle to deal with too. Lori Lightfoot is finally done presiding as Mayor of Chicago! She is the first mayor from the City to lose re-election since the 1980s. I am sure she will find a nice cush job in a public relations firm making tons more money from illegal sources. She is Black, Lesbian, and crazy ugly – a perfect trifecta for a federal job. Am looking forward to seeing what happens to that once great city on a Great Lake under the mis-rule of Brandon Johnson. I am sure he has his fleet of psychiatrists and counselors at the ready to fix up what ails you.

    • SW May 15, 2023 at 10:01 am #

      I read that some illegals were being shipped directly to Chicago and given Section 8 housing, knocking the people on the top of the list to the bottom. The really ironic thing is, this district voted 97% for Biden. hahaha Fooled you!

      Illegal Immigrants Lives Matter More Than Yours. Would you now mind sharing your food stamps, schools, and free medical care?

      • Beryl of Oyl May 15, 2023 at 10:09 am #

        It’s Chicago. How they voted and who they got arenot necessarily the same.

        • pyrrhus May 15, 2023 at 1:19 pm #

          Absolutely true…I very much doubt that Paul Vallas, a sensible Democrat who won the primary, lost to a wacko Marxist, disliked by a fair number in the Black community, and certainly the Hispanic community….

            I think elections were rigged for decades. Look at old man Daley who guaranteed JFK that he(Chicago) would deliver a win. I witnessed it in my IBEW Local. Had a decent business manager who worked with membership & business owners. He lost his re-election to a guy who never worked, but instead studied for law school on the job. A friend o’ the Daley clan. Nobody claimed to have voted for this new guy. A few weeks later they found 4 mail carts full of ballots against this crook. When they brought it to Wash DC they said a new election would cost money & to just let things go. When brought to a higher power to investigate it was quashed. Found out it was William Daley who put the rubber stamp on investigation. He was in the Clinton Cabinet and a childhood friend of our corrupt business manager. I left the trade in 2006 because of the corrupt BS. Not what I signed up for and stood against my political & personal beliefs. Want more stories? I have many to tell.

        I noticed the public “protest” by those who have been displaced from their position on the list of victims. I try to avoid responding with
        schadenfreude, but I can’t help noticing that these are the same people who believe that the belongings of those who have more than they do should be seized and redistributed to them. Illegal migrants, owning nothing more than they could carry with them, clearly have less than those who have been bumped off the Section 8 housing list. Why are they suddenly not so keen, in fact downright angry, at being taken at their word and having their own bounty redistributed to those who are here, in their sanctuary cities, at their behest? One would almost think it’s what they wanted for other people, but not for themselves.

      Nothing will happen to Chicago. The City will continue to limp along in corrupt decay and murderous actions just like it always has. Nothing ever collapses in this Country. It just limps along.

      More evidence that we are being taken down slowly and deliberately.

          Obama is building his presidential library and museum on the far south side of Chicago, which is causing gentrification, replacing and uprooting the people (namely Blacks) that Obama claims he was so in favor of representing, and who did all the grunt work to try and get him elected to his vaunted political positions in the first place.

          • RobofIllinois May 17, 2023 at 7:38 pm #

            Cow, if you are from Chicago you remember the whole lakefront from McCormick Place south was a ghetto of high and low rise buildings. The lake front & parks were always supposed to be for the people as Daniel Burnham intended. Then we had Daley jackhammer XXX’s into Meigs Field runway in the middle of the night as mentioned by another commenter here. They then built Millenium Park that enriched the connected, and gave the bill to the taxpayer whether directly or indirectly by pass thru business taxes. Then Waverly Island, more McCormick place additions, the parking meter and Skyway giveaway and now the Jackson Park giveaway to Barry Obama. I worked on a few hi-rises being built right on the lakefront and the guys I worked with were all black & asked why the hell would they build here? Many here know Hyde Park is filled with radicals & Marxists, or Progressives as they call themselves and alledgedly where the CPUSA started and the home to Saul Alinsky, Obama & Cankles mentor. Makes me sick how easy the voter is bought off.

            “The World Bank is… devoted to state-run corporate capitalism. Established and managed by a multitude of national governments, the World Bank promotes managed trade by which politically-connected individuals and corporations enrich themselves at the expense of the poor and the middle class. Western governments tax their citizens to fund the World Bank, lend this money to corrupt third world dictators, who abscond with the funds and then demand repayment, which is extracted through taxation from the poor Third World citizens, rather than from the government officials who were responsible for the embezzlement. It is in essence a global transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich. Taxpayers around the world are forced to subsidise the lavish lifestyle of Third World dictators and highly-paid World Bank bureaucrats who don’t even have to pay income taxes.” ~ Ron Paul

          • Billingsgate May 15, 2023 at 2:43 pm #

            Trump will be the GOP nominee. RFK, Jr., will not win the Dem Primary, but he’ll be a force for good by further educating the public re govt corruption and serving as a spoiler, splitting the Dem vote to help Trump win the General. Without admitting it to anyone, RFK will likely vote for Trump in the General.

      • cowbell81 May 15, 2023 at 12:06 pm #

        She was simply a terrible mayor in a city that I once used to love and frequently visit. A leader is supposed to step up, identify the problems, and work towards fixing said problems for the benefit of all, not the few. Lightfoot seemed to do nothing of the sort. The day she allowed riots and looting to run rampant on Michigan Ave. is the day she made it clear she had no interest in maintaining civility in the city. Furthermore, she continued to divide by telling all White reporters that they were not welcome at her press briefings. How crazy is that?

          Lori got carried away w/ her own position and belief that she had power; you don’t let the rabble destroy the businesses where the Elite shops and think you’ll continue in power. that was the beginning of her end.

      • Jarek May 15, 2023 at 12:31 pm #

        Wait – you actually like her? Explain that if you can. Is it because she’s a threefer? Do you share the positive prejudices of your Leftist clan?

          Or are you at work?

          Maybe that and your presence here are related.

          • Jarek May 15, 2023 at 2:13 pm #

            Yes, the sun shines and Blacks are still by far the best sprinters. We’re not all the same or “equal”.

            They also take the sun better than we do, another advantage they have. Do we have anything that they don’t have? What say you?

          • The Man They Call Zazelle May 15, 2023 at 5:42 pm #

            We’ve all survived up until now so whatever we have, from a survival standpoint, it’s ‘equitable’ if not ‘equal’ because we’re all at the same point from an evolutionary standpoint.

            So someone can ‘sprint’ and you can’t. Who gives a shit? Can you scratch your ass better than them? Well then there you go. Maybe you’ll be able to attract more mates by doing so.

          • Suburban_elk May 17, 2023 at 8:47 am #

            It’s the differences that matter, Zazelle.

            People who can’t tell the difference between Whites and blacks, are disingenuous or dumb.

            If, as you posit, everything is “equal” by virtue of breathing and having two hands and a tail, then we need to do away with biology, science, medicine, rational thought, discernment, and not to mention evolution.

            Why do you not want Whites to advocate for their own interests, at the exclusion of others?

            As an aside, I don’t see American Whites advocating for their own interests, at least not now; they are too demoralized and confused. In my better moments, it’s my mission to help clarify some of their confusion: they exist as a group with their own interests. Many who live among them, such as yourself, don’t want to see them as such.

          “Betegeuse” is the star, “Beetlejuice” is the Michael Keaton “incarnation” of that star and that’s who she resembles. (Sorry, P, I’m a proofreader and fact checker by trade and couldn’t stop myself!)

            He said neither of these, but rather some illicit union of the two. Can a person marry a star? If so, the result is Lori Lightfoot. And what of London Breed, yea, what of London Breed?

            @ Night Owl:

            Amen.

            Actually, it’s worse than “not using commas properly.”

            The first two clauses should be separated by either a semicolon or a period. You don’t just stick a comma between two independent clauses. And, of course, the third independent clause is not preceded by a comma. Besides that, “who” should be “whom.”

            Egad! is RCAnderson really a proofreader?

          • Night Owl May 16, 2023 at 6:50 am #

            He may have gone to the “Q. Shtik” school of proofreading, but as long as he is not an obnoxious loser who can’t even do that for which he attempts to criticize others, I won’t say anything else.

          • Anthea May 17, 2023 at 11:41 am #

            @ Night Owl:

            I am constantly astonished by the number of people around who can’t write to save their lives. Some of the worst offenders are the commenters over at tickerforum. What’s weird about it is that many of them are brilliant people with much knowledge to share. It’s a shame they can’t share it, or at least not very well, since I often can’t figure out what they’re trying to say.

            The thing is, correct usage can be learned, like anything else. There are books on this. If you want to know where commas go, this information is in the Chicago Manual of Style. It seems to me that people who are professionals in fields like engineering, IT, math, and the sciences, could also learn to write well, if they would apply themselves. I don’t know why they don’t.

          • Night Owl May 17, 2023 at 7:03 pm #

            Anthea,

            Yes, but I take a more relaxed approach. This stuff is what I do for a living, but I usually don’t even re-read my own posts. Communication does not require prefect spelling or grammar.

            Q types open themselves up to abuse though, and I just can’t resist.

          • Anthea May 18, 2023 at 8:22 pm #

            @ Night Owl:

            I’ve had several jobs as a proofreader/copy editor, though it’s been decades ago. I have also (for my sins) taught grammar. This causes you to see every little error for the rest of your life. But there’s not much point in mentioning it.

            I have yet to correct someone’s grammar and have them say, “Gee, thanks! Here’s five bucks!” So I don’t think there’s much call for this service.

        The last time I saw someone whose looks were as disordered as Lori Lightfoot’s, I was later embarrassed to learn that they suffered from a severe thyroid disorder. The reason I was embarrassed is because I should have realized that they were ill.

          • megabeth May 16, 2023 at 8:51 am #

            I have Graves’ disfiguration (though not Marty Feldman grade), and to me, Lightfoot looks as though she just has a normal amount of proptosis for someone of her race.

          • Anthea May 17, 2023 at 11:55 am #

            @ Megabeth:

            I cured my Graves Disease about eight years ago when I stopped drinking tap water. Initially, I switched distilled water (from Walmart). Now I have a good water filter. It took about six months of gradually reducing my medication before I was able to discard it altogether. Recent blood work confirms that my thyroid function is normal. But, obviously, you can tell if you are cured without needing to see blood work.

            You might give this a try, though it may not work for everyone. You have to be persistent. If it’s working, you should be able to tell the difference in as little as a month.

          • megabeth May 19, 2023 at 5:34 pm #

            Anthea,

            Thanks for the pro-tips! I am one of the lucky 30% who go into persistent remission easily with just a brief course of thyroid blocker or spontaneously. Got my first boyt at age 28 living in Mexico following an MMR booster. Second bout at age 42 after first giving birth, then foolishly taking a flu shot.

            My thyroid is still good, and it made me super-cautious about vaccines of any stripe. Still a pureblood!

        Well, I can’t speak to sociopaths’ appearances per se, but it is rather startling how many male lefties look alike: generally skinny, glasses, squinty eyes, salt-and-pepper Van Dyke, a general facial expression showing they desperately need copious quantities of prune juice and/or coffee to relieve the pressure on their brains. Are they clones? Are they manufactured this way? Is this the official lefty uniform created by Chairman Xi, et al?

      Check out the chaos at a Minneapolis city council meeting…
      On youtube, do a search for “minneapolis city council brawl”.
      I’m somewhat insulated here in this poor little county with less than 1% diversity residents, so I was quite shocked at the situation in Minneapolis… it’s like a horror film.

        I watched a video that ran 6:16 mins. Half way thru a white guy with a man-bun holding a microphone and wielding a gavel started yelling into the mic and pounding the gavel on a table presumably to gain control and get everybody to shut up and calm down. Of course man-bun man just made everything worse.

        Hahaha, I couldn’t help but laugh.

        In truth there were lots of people waving signs and yelling but I didn’t see any physical violence like bashing someone on the head with a folding bridge chair.

      Speaking of once and near great cities, what do you make San Francisco, Portland, Seattle & LA literally circling the toilet? How quickly it all happened, a mere 3 years. Some cities take decades or centuries to disintegrate; ours on the west coast went all at once. Businesses big & small closing or moving out, tens of thousands of vagrants living in the squalid streets, boarded up buildings covered with menacing graffiti, assaults & property crime commonplace so as not even warrant a response from the police, in short, hellscapes bereft of any shred of civilization & humanity. This apparently is the final stage of the ‘Progressive’ project.

      Well done.

      • cowbell81 May 15, 2023 at 1:10 pm #

        Listen to the recent podcast posted here by JHK with John Michael Greer. In it he describes the West Coast cities as the 21st Century version of the Rustbelt, but on the West Coast. This is because these cities were only prosperous due to the massive trade that we did with Asia on now worthless IOUs. That Asian trade is now drying up, and so are those cities.

        Can you imagine when San Francisco looks so totally abandoned and decrepit much like areas of Detroit did 20 years ago? At least all those homeless will have some mighty fine real estate to squat in before it goes up in flames. Add an earthquake to the mix and that should clean everything up nicely.

        Not very likely…The Donald’s ego will NOT allow him to do that… recall that although he named RFKJr “Vaccine Czar” in 2016 when he took office, he totally ignored him in favor of Fauci & Crew in 2019 and 2020, and despite all of RFK’s dire warnings Trump shut him out of any decision making regarding the mRNA shots, etc. Plus, RFK has said some disparaging things about Trump, and may not be willing to take any statements back.

      As much as I like RFK’s stance against the deathjabs and against the CIA and against the government-corporate racket… I just can’t give one red cent to further the Democratic Party in any way. As I understand it, some portion of any money given to RFK’s campaign goes to the DNC. Screw that!

      If RFK were to run as an independent, on the other hand, I’d be happy to support him.

      He can’t win in any case, so the whole purpose of his running is to get the most important issues out there in the open, raise public consciousness, and get people talking about them. Well, why can’t he do that as an independent rather than as a Democrat?

      Remember Ross Perot in 1992. He ended up getting 19% of the popular vote — not insignificant at all! But most importantly, he AIRED THE ISSUES that were most important to populist America, the same issues Trump ran and won on in 2016.

        It was 4 shahed kamikaze drones that hit a huge depot recently filled with UK’s promised depleted uranium weapons.

        You won’t read about it in the msm. Too late to call it a terrorist attack. More like karma kickback.

        Fortunately, or thanks to God, the prevailing winds are blowing predominantly west-northwest, blowing the released gamma radiation over Lviv & surrounding Azov Nazi strongholds. Soon to give Poland a taste of what it signed up for with Wile E Coyote, er, Nato.

          A legitimate target, at illegal weapons given by the UK (straight outta Marion, USA), to the nazis in Ukraine.

          • NickelthroweR May 15, 2023 at 2:43 pm #

            It is a dirty bomb. If the munitions in the warehouse were depleted uranium then that big dust cloud is full of uranium. It can’t be any other way.

            Right, Nicklethrower, it has released radiation.

        • Qwibqwib May 17, 2023 at 5:38 am #

          BTW, I read that the EU will soon ban DU, so that basically leaves the USA and the UK as the only powers in the world that still have and use DU. I think the UK had it in their mind to move the remnants of what they had to the ukes and wash their hands of it. That way they don’t have to spend the money to dispose of this toxic hazardous waste.

    “Like myriad institutions in recent decades, the Democratic Party had come to be dominated by women. Women, being hard-wired for safety-seeking, were easily manipulated by the security state into an hysteria fixated on Donald Trump, who was made to represent everything that seemed unsafe. They gave the game away on Mr. Trump’s inauguration day with their women’s march that featured thousands wearing the emblematic “pussy hats.” Message: don’t think you can have your wicked way with this!”

            @ Jarek:

            Well, actually, it is predominantly men who are who are unaccountable and who actively seek unaccountability. My main beef with “women’s liberation” is that the only people who were liberated by it were men, whom it freed from all social, sexual, or financial responsibility.

            The essential problem that women have with men is that they do not have honorable intentions towards women. Their intentions are immoral. That is, they seek sex without accountablility. That’s their whole schtick. They are thus mere sexual predators. Then they are surprised that women view them with contempt. They’re like blacks that way: immoral, irresponsible, lacking in impulse control, etc.–and angry and dismayed when whites view them with contempt. Like blacks, they complain that they are being treated unfairly if anyone attempts to hold them to any standard of decency.

            Women never touch us with a ten foot pole, Mary? Or is it that you would never allow any man to touch you with a ten foot pole? Isn’t that about the long and short of it?

            Note: In more sophisticated societies, or far more simple ones, women have more time to pursue the arts and do so. Whether their accomplishments equal that of men is another question.

            I bellieve you have stated that you are an incel, which is an acronym for “involuntarily celibate.” The “involuntary” part is normally due to being unable to find a willing partner, an indication that no one at all (of the female sex, anyway, assuming you are heterosexual) will “touch you with a ten foot pole.” Of course there are other possible reasons for being involuntarily celibate. Perhaps someone has you chained up in the attic. Perhaps you are in a mental institution or in prison.

            Actually, women who are married and/or have children carry roughly double the workload of men. This is chiefly because men will not assume responsibility.

            The double workload is probably the chief reason that there are fewer women who have distinguished themselves in the sciences.

            I would take issue with your statement that men dominate the arts. I’ve seen about an equal amount of fine work in the visual arts by men and women. The same is true in music. Women, it appears to me, dominate most crafts.

            A man is a sexual predator upon women when he seeks involvement with a woman without honorable intentions, i.e., marriage and family formation. Thus, the vast majority of men are mere sexual predators. (By the way, it follows from this that they should not be allowed to be around children. Children should be protected from lowlife-type people.)

            Of course women don’t want anything to do with creatures who are so degraded. Plus, of course, when a woman enters into a relationship with a man, it automatically doubles her workload. In the relations between the sexes, when a man enters into a relationship with a woman, she makes his life better. When a woman enters into a relationship with a man, he makes her life worse.

        Long before Covidmania busted up families and friendships, there was Trump’s election. My sister lost a friendship of more than 20 years over it, and a large, Christian, used-to-be-tightknit family I know suddenly got rifts in it that persist to this day, of course aggravated when Covid hit and made everyone crazy.

        Multiply those stories by millions. I’m sure everyone here has a story. Barring divine intervention, our nation is hopelessly and permanently broken. The divisions are just too profound. And this is not a simple red state and blue state thing. The split runs through nearly every community.

          From the NYT on November 9, 2016:

          More than half of the white women who voted in the presidential election cast their ballot for Donald J. Trump, according to exit poll data collected by The New York Times.

          The data indicate how deeply divided Americans are by race and gender: 94 percent of black women who voted and 68 percent of Hispanic or Latino female voters chose Hillary Clinton, but 53 percent of all white female voters picked Mr. Trump.

          The data can be broken down further: 51 percent of white women with college degrees voted for Mrs. Clinton, while 62 percent of women without one voted for Mr. Trump, a reflection of his success with working-class whites.

      • Anthea May 16, 2023 at 2:19 am #

        My impression is that the women marching around the streets in pussy hats were pretty much all government employees. If I remember right, the march was in DC, and pretty much everyone for many miles around DC is a government employee. The whole region is made up of affluent suburbs full of government employees, and they are, of course, all extreme leftists.

        The whole region–rather like NYC–is heavily Jewish. Frankly, it would make more sense to blame Jews. If you look into the actual beliefs of Conservative and Reform Jews, their belief system is actually just a rather thinly disguised version of atheism. A good reference on this is “Conversations with Rabbi Small,” which covers “instructions,” or the Jewish version of catechesis, of a woman seeking to convert to Judaism. The gist of the whole belief system is, “We don’t believe in anything at all except humanism and materialism.” It’s at least borderline Luciferianism.

      Yeah. If women’s “wired for safety” composition is why the Demos are going batty, what about the MEN whose safety wiring made my first 50 (Cold War) years a horror-story starring the Red Army…whose final act was to dig potatoes so their nation (where it took them 6 month to get a telephone!) wouldn’t starve to death? There’s some problem here, but it doesn’t look like “gender: is the issue.

      • Paula D May 15, 2023 at 7:56 pm #

        Women are ”wired for safety” so they voted for the woman who wanted to put a no-fly zone over Syria, and who was part of the administration that was provoking the hell out of Russia, especially from 2014 on.

        I fail to see the logic there.

        • MaryQueen May 15, 2023 at 10:06 pm #

      • Anthea May 16, 2023 at 2:56 am #

        I don’t know whether it’s true that women are “wired for safety” moreso than men. I do know that women–at least the ones I have known–are far more courageous than men. Put men under any kind of stress and they’ll fold like a cheap lawnchair. When women are under stress, they simply get on with doing whatever the situation requires. E.g., men will be defeated by trying to use the washing machine or by trying to prepare a meal more complicated than a bologna sandwich. Women will replace the alternator in the car.

        I doubt if there is any real evidence that “women are wired for safety.” That’s just one of those shibboleths that men repeat over and over.

        • Jarek May 16, 2023 at 12:22 pm #

          You associate with the lowest kind of men, obviously. The ones you can feel superior to. Or your memory is simply playing the tricks you’ve taught it to play, remembering only the things that bolster of gynocentric worldview.

          • Anthea May 17, 2023 at 3:02 pm #

            @ Jarek:

            Studies indicate that 75% of married men admit to having cheated on their spouses.

            Assuming you knew any real-life people, you would probably be aware that the vast majority of men expect sex before marriage. Perhaps from you online reading, you have noticed that most divorced men seek to avoid responsibility for supporting their children. Likewise, if you knew any actual people, you would know that, in most marriages/relationships, women assume about double the responsibility of the male partner.

            In reality, there are very few men who are not of “the lowest kind.” Now that I think of it, you have several times admitted to this yourself. You have stated that you think the government should provide free prostitutes for all yuou disadvantaged incels, for one thing. We also can be fairly sure that you live off of other people, as you have stated that you work as little as possible. (This probablly means “not at all.”) The fact that you are able to remain among the living–or at least not under a bridge–means you’re mooching off of somebody. (My guess is that you are on disability and living in someone else’s house.)

            Thus, you are rather definitively among “the lowest kind of men–and actually even lower than a good share of them. While it is not uncommon for a man to be an unemployed mooch yearning for a prostitute, most grown men are at least employed.

        • Anthea May 17, 2023 at 3:25 pm #

          I forgot to mention your pathological lying, as well as your boorishness.

          Neither these nor the above-listed traits are good qualities in a person.

          Then of course there is the habit of blaming your own deficiencies on women. Really, there is not much difference between your world view and general proclivities than those of an…ahem…”jogger,” who blames all his deficiences on “whitey.” It’s the exact same mentality: lying, mooching, irresponsibility, laziness, immorality, and complaints of being treated unfairly.

            100% spot on.

    • Cankerpuss May 15, 2023 at 10:57 am #

      I whole heartedly agree

      Although I know many smart and capable conservative women, I also know many more emotionally unstable women who want to save and help everyone on the planet and who believe that that is the sole responsibility of Government.

      I know of many women who voted for a man because he was “good looking” without regard to the candidates policies or history. I don’t know of many men who do that.

      Some of the wackiest politicians in Congress are women. They spout off their ideals without a clue as to reality. All caught up in emotions, never caught up in logic.

      Women have a hard time saying “no.” They want to appease. They desire to appease.

      Often I find myself thinking that the founders had it right when only land owning men had the right to vote. I know that sounds harsh but things seem to be festering worse and worse the more women get involved in politics. No, not all, but the majority of women are liberal. Black Lives Matter riots were populated with many young white women protesting a system that gives them more rights than most women on the planet enjoy. More girls are struggling with the transgender madness than boys. It feels as if the majority of women have lost their identity and have lost their way. They don’t know who they are and they don’t know what they want. Do we really want people like this in positions of power?

      Granted, there are many men in positions of power who are just as bad as the women. But women tend to be more leftist than men.

      The feminist revolution has not been kind to the fairer sex.

      • SW May 15, 2023 at 11:28 am #

        You might want to read some of Mary Harrington’s essays on why the feminists have gone berserk. When I considered myself one it was for the usual reasons (or so I thought) of equal wages, equal opportunity to be accepted in med or law school, opportunity to move up in jobs. I don’t even really know what it means anymore but one thing it seems to have accomplished is guilting young women who want to stay at home and raise a family. It’s taken a strange turn.

        And speaking of strange — why is always “what is a woman?” and I’ve yet to hear anyone having difficulty defining what a man is.

        • Islander May 15, 2023 at 12:56 pm #

          “And speaking of strange — why is always “what is a woman?” and I’ve yet to hear anyone having difficulty defining what a man is.”

          Yes, this reinforces my thinking that the constant questioning of what women are (includilng by the trans movement) is a branch growoing out of the unconcious premise that a woman is actually some odd version of a man—which started with the Adam’s Rib fairytale. .

        Some of the wackiest politicians in Congress are women. They spout off their ideals without a clue as to reality. All caught up in emotions, never caught up in logic.”

        I also know of many women who have voted for or against male candidates for completely emotional reasons. I’ve never known a single man to do this. That’s not to say men can always make a logical argument as to why they voted as they did, but some kind of thought is at the bottom of their decision. I’ve had women tell me they didn’t vote for Trump because they didn’t like the way he gestured with his hands! I’ve had women just scream “I hate him I hate him I hate him” over and over. In the rare cases where I persisted enough to ask what policies Trump advocated that they disliked, they could not name a single one.

        I agree with Jim that nature has made us different from men, and that seeking after safety and making emotional decisions is part of that. While it’s a generalization and doesn’t describe every woman, it’s nonetheless sufficiently true to make it plain that groups of crazed, overly emotional, ignorant women (like those on The View) are genuinely dangerous. I know way too many women who, as they listen to these harpies, get wound up like a child’s toy that then flies wildly around the room when the little key is released.

          I do kinda-sorta know leftist women–and also leftist men. Every one of them is government employee/retiree, and they’re all voting for “safety”–the safety of their jobs or retirements.

          As far as “safety” is concerned, show me a man who doesn’t worry about his job, his retirement. or his 401K. The whole “safety-seeking” of women is horseshit.

        Men are just as ruled by emotion they just don’t know what those emotions are.

          Of course it goes too far. If women were truly rational, they could help check this tendency. But they’re fanatical and oppositional, calling for Peace at any price one decade, and war to the death a couple of decades later.

            Have you ever been to a cock fight? Humans delight in tricking roosters to fight each other, pitting rooster against rooster. Same thing is done in the dog fighting scene. Staging rooster fights is illegal in the USA but not in south and central America. So we can watch you tube videos of legal cock fighting. Just as humans have discovered they can trick animals into fighting, other more clever and evil humans have discovered they can trick their fellow humans into fighting. No doubt they do this because they find that tricking humans into fighting can be far more profitable and fun than making roosters fight.

            Probably not a woman.

            The answer to the “why” part is: The men do this because they enjoy the emotional high–that is getting high off their own endocrine system.

            Men also get a pretty good high off of watching war movies. You can see it. I’ve seen guys duck and dodge in their chairs to evade cinematic depth charges. (That was when watching “Das Boot.”) It’s kind of funny, though the men’s claim that they are not emotion is more on the silly side.

        • Artur May 15, 2023 at 1:21 pm #

          Back when the World Trade Center was attacked, I was taking computer classes at night. I was the only woman in the class. That evening, all the men in the class were literally jumping up on their chairs yelling and screaming with excitement at the prospect of war.

            My father met me at work that day for lunch. We went to a local pub and sat down to eat. On the toob was the footage of the planes hitting the towers…over and over again. We didn’t jump and holler. We didn’t relish the prospect of war. We ate our lunch in silent shock. The bar was full of sad, thoughtful men that day. I got a call later on in the afternoon asking me if I was interested in going to Iraq as a contractor.

            I call bullshit on your story of men yelling and screaming about going to war. To this very day, I have never seen anyone jumping up and down, excited about that war or any of the wars that followed…

            @Jarek, this is the part that I can’t understand, and I do see it frequently in women and rarely in men. It seems almost like a natural and necessary aspect of women’s nature that has been twisted out of shape and weaponized against our own. There’s absurdly exaggerated defense of anyone and anything that’s off at distance and alien, either culturally or otherwise, and active, malicious fury at everything familiar, normal, and close to home.

            I notice that whenever I criticize women, there’s an immediate “yes, but” response of criticism for men. I’ve never suggested that men don’t have their flaws and faults, and that these don’t cause trouble in the world as well. I’m aware of them. It just seems to me that they’re quite different from the ways in which women wreck the world, and that those two separate ways are characteristic of the differences between men and women.

            Part of it, I think, is due to the extremism of our era. Any desirable attribute, if pushed to extremes, becomes untenable and destructive. As a woman, I think I notice more readily when the natural attributes of women are pushed to the point where they become toxic.

          • Jarek May 15, 2023 at 2:24 pm #

            During WW1, some young English women would give any young man not in uniform a white feather, indicative of cowardice. They would even walk into churches during service to do this.

            Fanatical as always, but at least they were for their nation. Now they are fanatical against it and the men of their own nation, culture, and race.

            Their basic nature is being played upon, their natural prejudices altered into unnatural forms. And the natural tension (energy!) between men and women has been weaponized to the nth degree.

            Fewer couples are likely to form, much less get to the “energy is eternal delight” (William Blake) stage. Or stay together after that phase and build a life together, perhaps occasionally revisiting that glory.

            In case you’re talking to me: No, because I made no absolute statement, posited no metaphysical absolute reality in relation to women. It’s all averages. So nothing can be said? No, far more women are far more liberal than men. That’s the truth, an “absolute” relative truth.

          • Rowdypiglet May 16, 2023 at 1:52 pm #

            I can’t honestly believe that a single instance of a man sporting a trans flag on his desk is proof of anything, or can be extrapolated to invalidate all other arguments. Can I ask where the logic is in that?

            It’s been my observation through my entire life that there really are inherent differences between men and women, not just the obvious ones. It seems as though you either disagree that there are differences, or think that the differences are other than what I think.

            If you genuinely believe that there are no inherent differences in the way men and women approach life and, for instance, there is no such thing as maternal instinct, then we’re too far apart to even argue about it.

            My remarks about women are generalizations and obviously don’t apply to everyone. They’re not intended as more than that. But I do see – for instance – the inclination to a variation on Munchausen Syndrome by proxy fairly widespread among women and rare among men. As I’ve said before, men have their own problems but I’m less attuned to them and – besides, we pretty much know what they are. Women, having not historically been in positions they occupy now, are showing traits that were once less noticeable or which played out domestically.

          OK Bill7424, let me sure I’ve got this straight. The title of the book you’re recommending is: The Age of Entitlement Chris Caldwell.

          And who is the author?

          Oh wait, it just occurred to me that you left out the word “by” between Entitlement and Chris. Whew, glad I caught that. 🙂

      I think there are two basic kinds of people: those who would prefer to live in a safe world rather than in a just world (which by its very nature requires confrontation and judgment), and those who would prefer to live in a just world rather than an absolutely safe world (which by its very nature would need to dispense with confrontation and judgment). I do not believe that these two different personality types break down along strictly gender lines. It may be that very generally women tend to prefer security over justice and that men tend to prefer justice over security, but my suspicion is that a tighter correlation would be the relative position a person occupied in their family of origin while growing up.

Following the coronation of Charles III, I asked my son-in-law if he watched it. He said he and his colleagues just laughed and said, “He’ll probably be dead in five years.” And so will I possibly being born in the same year and in the same month under a Scorpio sun as the king.

        If and when Trump gets the White House again he has to make damn sure of the team he’s selecting to do his bidding and not like the ones he chose the first time who were pro DeepState disloyal scums who went against him on every turn. I remember reading somewhere he wants Gen. Flynn back on his team. Wondering how that will pan out.

          Trump tried to please the national security state last time around and he’d be required to do it again next time if he wins. Desantis is no more of a war hawk globalist then the rest of the Republican pack and he’s still a better overall presidential candidate than Trump, whom I like.

      Great cage match!

      If we still went by the Constitution, the one with the most votes would be president, and the runner-up, vice president.

      I don’t even know when they changed that, but I think we should put it back the way it was.

      • MrMangoOnMyShoulder May 15, 2023 at 10:25 pm #

        Pretty sure the electoral college system is not based on “the most votes” to win. That said, the great state of Minnesotastan is passing legislation to join the “popular vote” movement, which will eventually negate the electoral college when enough states sign on.

        Of course, it will also negate any voting power MN has on the federal level (NYC alone has 150% the population of the entire state of MN, for example), but those in the big chairs in St. Paul right now think that’s just dandy.

    That was a pre-planned victory march for Hillary Clinton, to celebrate the first woman president in the United States. Thousands of ordinary women went ahead and held the marches anyway.

    That there were a small number of marchers wearing silly hats doesn’t alter that fact, and it is certainly not evidence of any of this being the fault of women.

    Yes, women are SO powerful within the Democrats that Barack Obama kept threatening to replace Hillary with Joe Biden and no one objected.

    What rubbish. Seriously.

    “The average Democrat knows the Biden family is profoundly corrupt and they simply don’t care…. Sam Harris spoke for all of them when he said it wouldn’t matter if Hunter’s laptop was packed w/pictures of dead kids.” — MartyrMade on Twitter

    This is very true.

    But it is also true that many Democrats simply refuse to believe it, and will insist to the bitter end that it is all Russian disinformation.

    I know this because I exist in an extended family environment filled with these people.

    • Rowdypiglet May 15, 2023 at 12:17 pm #

      I’m familiar with that family environment. They never heard what Sam Harris said, and wouldn’t believe it if they did.

      I’m convinced at this point that if they were both freezing and starving, they’d still be proclaiming the greatness of Joe Biden and blaming Trump. I’d go so far as to say that, if we had equally awful Democrat presidents for the next twenty years and Trump was long dead, they’d still blame him.

      In my family, their only real news source is “Rachel” (Maddow), whom they speak of with the greatest respect and affection, as if she were a trusted member of the family. Everything she says is the unvarnished truth!

    I watched the national news and the local news last night. Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas said there was a drastic reduction in migrant “encounters” in the two days since Title 42 expired. So as usual, he’s lying and manipulating language to do so.

    On the local news, a Congressman from one of border districts showed the shelters and one of them that was built for 900 people was housing 4000+. And the other ones were just as over capacity.

    In these pictures were lots of children. Our own statistics show something like 20% of our own kids live in poverty and we’re bringing more in? We all know Biden is not in charge of anything but reading the teleprompter so what is this really about? I realize meat packing plants, agribusiness and construction want cheap labor but how can we absorb so much need when we already have so much? Is it really about getting them in, pushing through amnesty and harvesting their votes?

    • Beryl of Oyl May 15, 2023 at 10:19 am #

      Bobby Jr. is going to reform our agencies but Homeland Security is clearly not performing according to the law, and all he can talk about is the poor widdle migrants.

      If you are still hearing about the illegal alien invasion on mainstream media, there is a reason. The media talks about nothing it doesn’t want you to know about.
      Like the Biden corruption, and the depleted uranium blown up by Russia before it could be used on Donbass.

      Personally, I think they are trying to divert attention from the revelations of Biden corruption.

      Yeah, the capitalists want cheap labor, but they don’t need that much.

      And they already rig the elections, so it’s not Democrat voters they are after.

    A presidential contest between Trump and RFK would, indeed, be the best imaginable tonic for the falsity and corruption of today’s American politics.

    That’s why colossal forces are arrayed to prevent any possibility of such a thing coming about.

    • Beryl of Oyl May 15, 2023 at 10:30 am #

      Trump almost had RFK Jr. on his team, but then he kicked him in the teeth.

      I thought it was all due to Bill Gates, RFK Jr. thinks it was due to money, but the fact is that Fauci and Collins moved in for the kill from the very start of the Trump administration.

      So, Trump had THREE YEARS to have somebody check out that Fauci fellow before they unleashed the virus, and neglected to do so.

      Incredibly, Fauci ended up as the head of the team responding to the virus he funded.

      People keep claiming that Trump did not hire Fauci and Birx, also claiming he could not fire Fauci.

      That is false.

      Fauci’s position at NIAID and the covid task force only created in 2020 were two distinct things.

      Someone had to ask Fauci to come to those meetings. Trump has also stated that he thought about firing Fauci, but decided not to.

      He has said that out in public, that it was his choice whether to keep Fauci or fire him.

      People still try to defend that and act as if it didn’t happen. It did.

      They also think that screaming “he was lied to” defends the mess he made. He has had three more years to figure out that he was lied to, and he still stands by that entire covid team and response, which he has also stated publicly more than once.

      He has also owned the lockdowns, though people keep trying to say it was all the governors’ fault.

      • Islander May 15, 2023 at 10:52 am #

        Trump qua politician doesn’t have the skill set, or something, to understand the idea of a back channel.

        As president he could have tapped any number of people to get more information.

        When JFK wanted to talk peace with the USSR/Khrushchev, both understood the risks to initiate communication publicly. Kennedy found and used a back channel to convey to Khrushchev that he wanted to get off the confrontation trajectory. Of course such communication was anathema to both the Soviet and the DC hawks. Ultimately both men paid the price.

        Just an example, though.

        Trump chose to be surrounded by idiots such as Ivanka and Jared, and not to seek information from RFK and other sources.

        He has only himself to blame is he was “lied to.”

        He really didn’t know the ropes.

        • hmuller May 15, 2023 at 11:03 am #

            @hmuller – If by “on our side” you mean opposed to the deep state, I cannot analytically state that includes Trump. Trump has paid lip service to locking her up and draining the swamp but chose to promote nothing but deep-state swamp rats to key positions. His supporters claim he was poorly advised but he kept doing it repeatedly. How can that be construed as being anti-swamp? It simply cannot, no matter what rhetoric Trump wraps his actions in, he has promoted the deep state at every turn. I don’t think RFK Jr. would do the same. His IQ is roughly double that of Trump.

          • Beryl of Oyl May 15, 2023 at 12:22 pm #

            C.O. Bobby has the same problem as Trump in some ways. Trump wants to be liked and approved of by the Deep State scum.

            Bobby likes some of the people who are inextricably intertwined with the Deep State corruption.

            He never mentioned Nancy Pelosi or Joe Biden when he was talking about Ukraine.

            LOL.

            Never mind entering government in a situation where 75% of it has been aligned against you. I think people forget what DC was like as Trump took office. They tried everything short of assassinating him.

        • oilie May 15, 2023 at 1:43 pm #

          A new president needs to come in with enough capable people to take control at the top. Trump did not. He made a lot of bad choices and kept too many people, such as Fauci, who should have been dismissed. Trump probably still does not know enough people to foil the deep state in waiting. The cultural war is over and we lost.

          • Islander May 16, 2023 at 8:49 am #

            “A new president needs to come in with enough capable people to take control at the top.’

            I agree.
            JFK definitely had a kitchen cabinet—a group of absolutely loyal people who have broad and deep knowledge of various sorts—including, probably, where a few skeletons are buried.

            Trump had so little understanding of hiostyr, of Washington, of the workings of power in DC—he was, actually, doomed to fail.

            The term “kitchen cabinet” (a cute pun) is older than I thought.
            Per Wiki:
            “A Kitchen Cabinet is a group of unofficial or private advisers to a political leader.[1] The term was originally used by political opponents of President of the United States Andrew Jackson to describe his ginger group, the collection of unofficial advisors he consulted in parallel to the United States Cabinet (the “parlor cabinet”) following his purge of the cabinet at the end of the Eaton affair and his break with Vice President John C. Calhoun in 1831″
            .

          • C.O.Jones May 17, 2023 at 10:33 am #

            I agree with your statements ollie – but I’m not willing to throw in the towel and say we lost.

            What would Trump do differently if he regained the white house? His campaign slogan should be “This Time I Mean It” which would admit he was only joking the first time around. I suspect he would turn things over to sons and resume tweeting about the stock market from his perch on his golden toilet.

            I do have hope that Bobby Kennedy Jr. could get up to speed quickly with a team of competent professionals. He is an avowed free-market capitalist which is what crony-capitalists smear as a socialist. Listening to him speak, it is not hard to imagine him writing the books he has authored. This is an intelligent man. I am certain this country and probably the planet will not survive if those responsible for the covid fraud are not held to account. We know Biden won’t lift a finger and Trump is still taking “credit” for the death shots – that’s how damn dumb he is. Maybe, just maybe, president Kennedy would prevent another scamdemic and actually work to unify this country. Call me foolish but I still have hope.

    I disagree that another Trump term would have any intention of “disarming the security state” or performing any other swamp-draining activity. Trump failed to pardon Snowden and Assange and made no effort to “Lock Her Up,” despite all the chanting at the rallies. When he landed in office he surrounded himself with the very swamp creatures he railed against in his first campaign.

    Trump is useful theater. He very convincingly plays the part of Goldstein in Orwell’s 1984 at whom half the public can hurl their daily “Two Minutes Hate.” The other half of the public is mesmerized by his stagecraft and think he will actually deliver on his promises. But what he actually delivered, in tandem with the TV spell-casters (where he used to work), is massive division of the country.

    I no longer look at things at stage level. I’m on the catwalk above, watching who’s pulling the wires.

His best bet would be to fire as many people as he possibly can and just leave the jobs unfilled or reach down to the state and local level and find the most extreme, unhinged right wingers he can find and give them carte blanche to punish and destroy as many career government employees as possible. If they push back, bring in special forces and throw them in Gitmo.

          He’s obsessed with big guys and “winners”. Why would people like that want to change the system in which they flourish? Indeed, why would Trump in any deep way?

          Trump’s a mild conservative at best. Half way through his term he said of the illegals: I want these people here because the economy is so good. So much for his base and the promises he seemed to make. Apparently it was just insinuations that he was never serious about.

            NO: So he couldn’t say no to any of them? Yes, he could – assuming the office of presidency still has any validity. If he actually couldn’t say no, then our whole discussion is moot and his character doesn’t matter.

            I think he just didn’t/doesn’t know who is good or bad – he only knows who is “big”. And of course he became increasingly afraid as time went on – afraid to say no to people or fire them.

            He was in over his head – and to be fair, who wouldn’t be at this point? The system is too far gone.

          • Night Owl May 16, 2023 at 1:03 pm #

            You act as though he interviewed and hand picked his entire cabinet and staff across institutions.

            DC is a cesspool full of system lackeys. If the incoming president plays ball with what industry and the donor class want, all is well.

            If he doesn’t then the lackeys destroy him and use the corporate media to broadcast it.

            Personally, I don’t think any president has the ability to turn any of this around, no matter how much they may want to.

            Perhaps Kennedy could do some real damage, as he is a political insider, but even then, I doubt it.

        Most people just do whatever their boss tells them to do. The shit runs downhill.

        One evil person in a place of power can do a lot, simply by giving orders.

        Think of Fauci. He had 40 years of power in order to destroy the public health apparatus with corruption, mandatory vaccinations (starting with the children), and gain-of-function bioweapon research.

        Or earlier, Allen Dulles as ambassador to Switzerland, meeting with the Nazis during WW2 and conniving with the Vatican to set up the ratline afterwards, or setting up the assassination and cover-up of JFK in 1963.

        Beryl- Yes, he made bad staff picks. But remember, he probably thought he was go to lose, so he didn’t bother with planning an administration. He had two months to put it together. Of course he relied on people like Mitch. What choice did he have initially? The mistakes followed with time.

        • Islander May 19, 2023 at 6:48 am #

          “he probably thought he was go to lose, so he didn’t bother with planning an administration.”

          Good point.
          However, most presidents do not announce their cabinet immediately after the election.

          Theyhave over two months to plan, and even then I think many cabinet posts are not announced pre-Inaguration.

          It is possible that the “Trump team” was so preoccupied with the mechanics of the Inauguration and the move to Washington that they neglected the basics of erecting a powerful political defensive wall.

          As soon as the serious sniping–or snipering— got going right after the election, Trump should have realized he was heading into a firestorm and needed stormtroopers.

          It is possible that Melania was not on board with the whole project, and there were domestic brush fires to put out.

          For whatever reasons, Trump failed to fortify his presidency. .

    Round us up how? How will sick/dying agents round up anyone?

    Within my own group of family and associates, the clot shot has sent Kharma spilling in all directions. Not a day goes by without another death or serious injury with the most recent being a 32 year old having a heart attack.

  18. Frank Buttitch May 15, 2023 at 10:30 am #

    My VAX story,

    As Covid 19 was ramping up I was developing severe symptoms of heart disease. Turns out I had 5 clogged coronary arteries that needed immediate attention. The Mayo Clinic who did my surgery required the VAX, a booster and Covid testing for surgery.
    I was already fully vaxed like a good boy so I got the green light for the procedure.
    If I was an unvaxed non-compliant citizen I would not have been approved for admission.

    I am not being overly dramatic, I would have been long dead already without surgery.

    The Vax did not save my life, my personal submission saved me.

    • cowbell81 May 15, 2023 at 10:38 am #

      Maybe as a result of your surgery, the bits of vaxx that cause the clot shot deaths were someone removed from your system? That is a remarkable story and turn of events, like you said it was your submission that saved you, not the clot shot. Otherwise you would be dead, and surprisingly the malodorous effects of the clot shot have so far been nil for you.

      • Beryl of Oyl May 15, 2023 at 10:47 am #

        Not everyone gets the bad effects, at least not right away.

        There are also certain batches of the vaxx that apparently cause more ill effects.

        • thirdcoastlegend May 15, 2023 at 10:54 am #

          It’s hard to imagine the stringent handling guidelines for the juice were widely followed, thus rendering the gene junk in many vials inert.

          If the mRNA is so sensitive, one wonders how they are going to make it hold up for delivery via the food supply.

          • Paula D May 15, 2023 at 12:26 pm #

            Agree, thirdcoast.

            First they told us that the “vaccine” had to be kept at negative 80 degrees F, and injected into the body, bypassing the resp and GI tracts, but now they tell us they can grow it in a plant, and it will be active after it goes through our digestive system?

            This is not a believable story.

          • Rowdypiglet May 15, 2023 at 12:28 pm #

            thirdcoastlegend, I’ve wondered about that too. There are instructions floating around the web (perhaps suggestions would be a better term) for avoiding the effects of mRNA in the food supply, which seem to center on temperature. I also can’t believe that the temperature guidelines were adhered to very widely, considering the difficulty in doing so.

          • GreenAlba May 15, 2023 at 1:23 pm #

            Perhaps because the mRNA is not necessarily the most important agent of harm? There are apparently 26 teams of independent scientists analysing the contents of ‘vaccine’ vials (government scientists are forbidden to analyse them by the terms of the pharma contracts).

            Some have found large numbers of vials that contained no mRNA at all, but they did contain graphene oxide. Professor Pablo Campra (University of Almeria) is one of the better known scientists doing this work – his team’s work is published by La Quinta Columna – they recently put out a catch-up video of where things currently are with this research.

            Graphene oxide is being found everywhere – in the food supply, in other vaccines – I recently read it has been found in dental anaesthetic drugs (only since 2019 – those produced before 2019 were fine).

            Dr Ana Mihalcea has tested blood from supermarket beef products and found nanotubes and other graphene oxide structures in there too. It’s a broad-spectrum assault not limited to ‘vaccines’.

          • GreenAlba May 17, 2023 at 7:29 am #

            Not only that, Heartlander, but it was the taxpayer who funded the development of the ‘vaccines’. The pharma companies have never played a blinder quite like this one, but then they did it with the full back-up of the regulatory agencies, governments, media and Big Tech, most of whom they own. And the bits they don’t own are owned by the people who own them.

      Ya, we all make choices sensible only unto ourselves, I reckon.

      My choice would have been, and indeed has been to opt for death rather than for the attention of the medical monsters.

      Don’t misunderstand me; I consider surgeries and stitches to be among their noble achievements but the vast majority of what American medicine men perform these days is merely pharmaceutical madness and genocide.

      …probably sensible only unto myself.

      • Heartlander May 15, 2023 at 3:03 pm #

        I have long been pondering what happens if I am in some critical situation where I would need a blood transfusion. Would I accept the blood, which very likely comes from someone vaxxed and might get who knows what into my body? Or do I choose to die, and would that be morally equivalent to suicide, which is absolutely not thinkable to a devout Catholic such as myself?

        It is a very troubling question. I suppose there is always a CHANCE that the particular blood you might receive is not contaminated. As we know now, every batch of the vaxx is different, and the response of every vaxxed individual’s body is different. So, even if the blood donors were vaxxed, there’s some chance that the toxic stuff is NOT in that particular blood that you would receive.

        So I suppose I would accept the blood and pray for the best, putting it in God’s hands. Trusting that either the blood would be OK, or, if not, that God would give me the mental and spiritual strength to deal with whatever might happen afterwards.

        Maybe it’s pointless to speculate ahead of time about an event that may never happen, and just trust that God will guide me if it ever does.

        It complicates things that there’s a big part of me that feels that the whole vaxx project smacks of something satanic. So my revulsion to it goes beyond even the scientific evidence of how biologically harmful the shots are.

        • Heartlander May 15, 2023 at 3:06 pm #

          Edit to add:
          Of course I guess there would also be a CHANCE that refusing a transfusion might not kill me.

          I’m just going to hope that God will give me guidance in the event that this scenario ever cones about.

            No they mix all the blood, it’s contaminated. Jehovas got it right, no transfusions, use blood builders.

            Oh believe me, I’m not holy at all. I used the wrong word. By devout, I meant BELIEVING. As in: I believe what the Church teaches as true.

          You could also argue that all the saints who underwent martyrdom were essentially committing suicide. They knowingly put themselves in harm’s way or risked putting themselves in harm’s way for a matter of principle or belief.

          As with many other things related to modern medical practice, blood transfusions–and donating blood–have always struck me as ghoulish.

          I don’t know what my decision would be if I was told I required a transfusion, but I have long suspected that most transfusions are unnecessary in the first place. (I have no data for that, though much of my research about medical practice indicates that just about everything they do is unnecessary or harmful.)

The list is so long it boggles the mind, especially those computer crimes of extra special significance by Hillary and/or her staff.

    Destruction of hard drives is still a stand out, the private server at home which was used for secret comms only intended for a State Department server; her use of a Blackberry with its known security flaws; she as Secretary of State flaunted with feckless abandon from her future presumed perch of power of the presidency knowing she already had a get-out-of-jail-free card in her or Huma’s handbag.

    And the sorry thing is, she was totally correct in her presumption.
    Because Comey and Holder were never going to do fuck-all to their once and future meal ticket. Remember, the FBI had (has?) their own office within the Democratic party’s law firm, Perkins Coie.

    Obviously the “Me” generation has problems with the concept. Look around.

    Trump vs. RFK Jr. sounds like a dream contest created purely The Controllers to gin up interest in their dying two-party franchise clown show called a democratic republic.

    Neither one of those candidates could do anything to change anything at this point. We need to crash and burn first.

      Agreed. I’m sick of these old farts who are too self consumed to retire and go play with their grand children who stay in power far longer than they are wanted or needed. The Baby Boomers are the ones at fault. Voting themselves constant benefits and putting the cost of those benefits on the backs of the younger generations. I harbor a lot of anger and hate towards this generation and they are still in power and still kicking the can down the road. They just won’t go away.

        Pelosi, McConnell, Biden, and Feinstein are not “boomers”.

        Neither is Klaus Schwab.

        Generations are an abstract concept, the baby boom refers to an increase in babies after the WWII soldiers returned.

        People mocked Nancy Reagan for consulting astrologers.

        People born at a particular time have some kind of collective guilt?

        Do we ever see a horoscope for April 20 that says, “Born today, you are literally Hitler?”

        Of course, they may be texching numerology as hard science in our universities today and I just haven’t got the memo.

        BTW 58,000 of my generation went off to war in Viet Nam and came back in bags, if at all.

My vote has counted little with most of the asinine policies our government has put into place. And I have had it with those of other generations blaming me for events occurring during my lifetime, as if I am personally responsible for it. C-pus must be from the generation that is incessantly victimized by the weather, gravity, the Ghost of Christmas Past, and everything in the sixth dimension. And, not afraid to whine about it, my God, endless whining and it’s everybody’s and everything’s else’s fault. Can’t be his fault because, “look-at-me, I’m a victim”. You want to hear whining??

          Boomers never had any more say in anything than people do today. Another factor is that they lived most of their lives in an era when it was almost impossible to access information about much of anything. In my youth, the only major newspaper in the area was the Kansas City Star, a liberal rag since time immemorial.

          If you wanted to research something, such as vaccinations, you had to go down to the public library and sort through the card file and request books from some distant library system. This normally took some time.

          At one point around 1985, I asked the Kansas City Public Library to search for books I could read that were opposed to (or at least skeptical of) vaccination. The lady I spoke with was indignant and kaghast. She flatly refused to help me find any such materials. I asked to speak to her supervisor, which settled her hash, but I think my point–that boomers were denied information–still holds.

    One of the “signs of the times” is a rampant explosion of intolerance, perhaps hatred, for those who “disagree” with some CORE belief one holds dear to the heart. I think psychiatry has labels for such persons, but I’ll skip that for now. But as example, watch this 46 second video in which RFK JR states that among others, the KOCH brothers should be IN JAIL for promoting their view that the sacrament of “CLIMATE CHANGE (as in man made climate change) is BULLSHEEET.

    Seems like EVERYONE is VERY “amped up” about THEIR core beliefs, and rightfully so. Because if EVEN for one minute, people found the clarity of THEIR OWN THOUGHT, and realized how STUPID they were for being played a SUCKER their WHOLE FREAK’N LIFE, by the CONTINUAL PSY OP(s) that are created to program their LEEDLE minds, they might indeed have a very REAL nervous breakdown.

    Well, the sum total of my point is just this….”infantile narcissism” is the #1 disease in this world, and reality has a way of dragging the miscreants out to the proverbial woodshed, where some receive a VERY vigorous WHACKING. Let us pray YOU and I somehow avoid those rather distasteful “teaching moments” and can somehow rise above our own seething prejudices. But I wouldn’t count on it.

      RFK jr has been bamboozled by a science scam. Most people are scientifically illiterate, don’t understand the basics of it or how it works, and are thus easily taken in by frauds. They hated the subject in high school and have forgotten most all of it.

      Somehow people think of universities in the same ways as they used to think about church authorities centuries ago. There are high priests (professors) in these universities, and since science cannot lie then neither can the professors who are supposedly ruled by logic and scientific principles. So if a scientist says it, we believe it, and that settles it. It works just like the Pope does when he is speaking “ex cathedra” and can speak only truth.

      And this is precisely how cults work. RFK jr has only seen part way through the big smoke screen. But at least he’s focused and looking.

      • Rowdypiglet May 15, 2023 at 1:33 pm #

        @Woodchuck, I completely understand being blinded by science and having difficulty knowing who can be trusted. On the other hand, two things come to mind:

        1. You don’t have to do much digging to discover that the scientists who march in lockstep get their grant money and funding from the same entities that benefit from promoting the scam. Any reasonable person can see the conflicts of interest that pervade the climate emergency agenda, while those scientists who speak out against it are specifically those who have no financial ties to the entities that promote it.

        2. Those who most zealously push this as an emergency do nothing whatsoever, either in their personal or public lives, to act in accordance with what they preach. How is it possible not to notice that the loud voices of climate emergency fly their personal jets to expensive resorts to bloviate about the sacrifices we (not they) must make, when they could have just as well chatted over Zoom? I recall Tony Blair being invited to speak for a half hour at one of their pow wows (as if he’s an expert of any kind), offered some grotesque sum of money (I think it was L350,000) and turning it down as insufficient for his needs. It’s just not possible to look at this even glancingly and not notice it’s all about money.

        RFK Jr is more than smart enough to be aware of this, and in a better position to notice than most people. How can he not see this for the scam it is? If he’s looking, he’s not seeing. If I were really cynical, I’d think it might be because he can’t run as a Democrat if he doesn’t embrace at least one of their sacred articles, and that’s the one he’s chosen.

    • Beryl of Oyl May 15, 2023 at 12:35 pm #

      RFK now understand how the climate change concept is being exploited for authoritarian purposes.

      It would be better if he’d come around to the truth, but oh well.

      We have one candidate who knows the truth about global warming but is stuck on stupid when it comes to the vaxx, one who has modified the stupid somewhat when it comes to the warming, but is clear on the vaxx, and the rest of them who are extremely stupid on both.

      Most of them men btw.

      It looks like RFK jr. has a slight edge, if one is inclined to give slight edges in the case of stupid things MEN want to do to the whole world.

    • Woodchuck May 15, 2023 at 11:56 am #

      @ cowbell I’m a baby boomer, a child of the 50’s. I’m able to compare how kids grew up in the 50’s and how they grow up now. About all I can say about us boomer is we did a piss poor job of raising children and creating a decent world for them to grow up in. My parents grew up in a world that was far more dismal and frightening than was post war 50’s. A child of the 30’s and 40’s will remember war, rationing, and often dismally hard work mixed with boredom. Those decades included a lot of suffering.

      But not the 50’s. In the 50’s it was time to relax and have some fun, and we did. Each year brought excitement like the times families on your block bought new automobiles. Or when some mom on the street popped out a new kid and a few of our gang had a new baby boom kid brother. Children would gather around a brand new Pontiac station wagon down the street. It had that new car smell and was a great car for going on vacation trips to the Great Smokies. Elvis Pressly was horrifying and scandalizing my grandma and teenagers were going to sock hops. Some homes were even getting air conditioning. There was no gender confusion and the gay stuff was only wispered and rumored about. Or joked about. And that was it. People ate in restaurants only on special occasions. Women and homemakers everywhere both prepared and preserved food at home. There was a big difference between men and women in the 50’s and the roles they played and the work they did. During the war many women were doing factory work, farm work, and other activities ordinarily done by men. And the men were off to war. At war’s end, women much preferred to be homemakers again rather than driving tractors or running cranes. That’s how things are in a sane world.

      Insanity didn’t really get started in the USA until the 70’s. Then we took the wrong road and we’ve been on that wrong road ever since. At the end of it we’ll find a “dead end” sign – the road was never completed past that point. And now we’ll all be getting off the bus that’s out of fuel. And we’ll be walking home. It’s gonna be a very long walk. Blaming the bus driver won’t help.

        The voice of an expert. That’s the way it sposed to be.

        Well, FYeffin’I, women were flying planes around during the war, and some of them were mighty pissed off to be shitcanned from the “cockpit” and sent back the kitchen sink when the boys came home.

        • Woodchuck May 15, 2023 at 4:08 pm #

          Nobody was around stopping women from flying. Look up the stories about Amelia Earheart, Jackie Cochran, Pancho Barnes, etc. As for flying in the military, that was a separate issue those days. Women can fly just as good or even better than men can. But it used to be men didn’t think it appropriate to have women fighting either against or with men in actual warfare. Maybe inappropriate unless you are losing and acting out in desperation. A few of my mom’s friends got assigned to operate anti aircraft guns during the last year of the war in Germany. In desperation women and children were given guns and told to go fight. Women in the US flew big military planes as “ferry pilots” during WWII. They were freeing up other pilots who were needed to fly combat missions instead of just flying planes around in friendly territory. My guess is that if these women who were “mighty pissed off to be shitcanned” had been flying combat missions and seen their friends burned alive and blown to pieces – or seen their peers parachuting out over enemy territory and on the way to prison camp – well – I feel certain they would have been happy to see the end of the war and the end of their military service.

          • Islander May 15, 2023 at 6:25 pm #

            “Nobody was around stopping women from flying. ”

            Wrong.

            Why don’t you look up Amelia Earheart, ” Died in 1937. Independent flyer, funded by a rich guy.

            Jackie Cochran: Private test pilot and aviator, funded by and married to a millionaire.

            Barnes was an heiress, private aviator/stunt flier.

            This has nothing to do with the situation of the WASPS, which is what I alluded to.
            “The WASPs were disbanded on Dec. 20, 1944. Amold’s letter of notification to WASPs stated, “When we needed you, you came through and have served most commendably under very difficult circumstances, but now the war situation has changed and the time has come when your volunteer services are no longer needed. The situation is that if you continue in service, you will be replacing instead of releasing our young men. I know the WASP wouldn’t want that. I want you to know that I appreciate your war service and the AAF will miss you…More than three decades later, on Sept. 20, 1977, a select House subcommittee on veteran affairs heard testimony on H.R. 3277, a bill which recognized WASP service as active duty in the armed forces and entitled them to veterans’ benefits.””

            So, “look up the story of the WASPs.” I’ll help you:

            @ Islander I reckon I’m an old guy stuck in the past and mired in misogynist propaganda. I would never have liked having women around in a period in my youth when I was employed as a carpenter/builder on framing crews. It had nothing to do with not liking females. It was all about how men behave when women aren’t around. Most construction crews doing work requiring some muscle are rough blue collar guys, with all the cussing, dirty jokes, jostling each other around etc. Sometimes we’d act like real buttheads and the foreman was there to make sure order was maintained and that we had some teamwork going on.

            Whenever a well dresssed woman realtor showed up, or we were doing a custom home and the future lady of the house was there, we ALWAYS acted like gentlemen. We were capable of being gentlemen but it was an act. We’d be pounding nails, moving walls, and standing them up. If a woman shows up on the jobsite she’s there for a reason. She has a personal stake in the project. So all the cussing, deliberate farting, dirty jokes, all the uncouth and rude behavior stops when a lady is present. After she’s gone, we’re back to behaving as men ordinarily do in all male environments. As far as I could tell, most everybody in the 60’s and 70’s was ok with this arrangement. But now it seems women want to be like men. There are even delusional females out there miffed because they can’t join outlaw motorcycle gangs.

            I think the military, just like construction crews, should be a guy thing only unless your country/nation is in a real crisis. During WWII the Russians had some really badass female combat flyers called the “night witches”. And during this time Russia was in very serious trouble with Germany attacking them. Sending women into combat should only be part of a last ditch effort. Russia was in that sort of crisis. During peace time there’s no good reason for women to be in the military.

          • Jarek May 16, 2023 at 12:44 pm #

            Yes, very few women want to go into actual combat. I don’t think Islander would like it very much – or the other jobs that men do and women want no part of.

            This is the bullshit “side’ of feminism. Actually feminism is mostly bullshit.

            But yes, kudos to the women who can step up with the chips are down. The Russians made big use of them – but no longer. Tradition has reasserted itself. Hitler said no to it, telling women that if they had seen what he had seen, they would understand. Bad enough to see men shattered and mutilated, but women? He loved them too much.

            It’s part of our tradition as well: Women standing by their Men, reloading as he fired at Indians attacking their cabin. Or shooting right along with him.

    Trump had his chance to form a team with RFK Jr., and he blew it.

    “During an interview on CNN, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., son of the late-Robert Francis “Bobby” Kennedy who was assassinated in 1968, said Donald Trump “could be the greatest president in history if he wanted to,” and could easily be “the next Teddy Roosevelt.”

    In the discussion with CNN Tonight host Don Lemon on Dec. 14, Lemon noted that Microsoft founder Bill Gates had said Trump could be another JFK and asked Robert Kennedy Jr. if he thought a comparison could be made between the Kennedys and the Trumps.

    Kennedy said, “Well, I think Donald Trump can be, you know, any kind of president he wants. He’s actually — he has this extraordinary opportunity because he’s coming into office less burdened by obligation than probably any president in our history with the possible exception of Andrew Jackson.”

    “And you know, both of them, Jackson and Trump came in, they were — people were sickened, they were outraged when Jackson came in and they thought it was the end of the world and he became a — unless you were an American-Indian, he became a very good president in defending the country against corporate power and really democratizing America in many ways,” said Kennedy.

    Trump does not have obligations, he said, and if Trump cares about history, “he could really be an extraordinary president.”

    Kennedy further said that Americans want the idealistic and positive leadership that they saw in JFK and they also want the country to “get rid of this bullying and this bellicose, pugnacious foreign policy.”

    “Do you think Trump can do that?” said CNN’s Lemon.

    Kennedy answered. “I think he can do that. You know, I think he can do anything he wants because he is not — he is not bound by ideology. He is less bound by ideology than any president probably that we’ve had this century.”

    “[H]e said to Leonardo DiCaprio the other day that he wanted to be the next Teddy Roosevelt, and he can easily do that,” said Kennedy.

    Lemon then said, “I just have about 10 seconds here, but do you think the new Kennedys, do you think that’s a fair comparison?”

    Kennedy said, “Like I said, I think he can be any kind of president he wants. I think he could be the greatest president in history if he wanted to.”

      I watched the interview with Russell Brand and liked a lot of what RFK said. But if Biden’s still (barely) alive he doesn’t stand a prayer of getting the nomination. The Democrat convention has something called “super delegates” that are chosen by the party and there are a lot of them. That’s why Hillary declared herself the nominee before the convention b/c they were all pledged to her per prior agreement. With RFK wanting to end the Ukrainian war, purge the CIA and reform the NIH & CDC, the Democrats won’t want him and will cut him off at the knees. We’re screwed.

        JFK, RFK, Perhaps JFK, Jr as a prospective star. I would believe that one of the inspirations for RFK, Jr is the destruction of the Deep State bastards that assassinated his family.

        Something he and Trump have very much in common.

        Third party?

        • Beryl of Oyl May 15, 2023 at 12:44 pm #

          Trump decided not to release the JFK files.

          I don’t know what RFK will do if they deny him the nomination after he obviously does better in the primary.

          Whatever he does, I hate the word unprecedented because it gets overused, but I think it will apply.

    • Islander May 15, 2023 at 6:26 pm #

      Wow, Beryl, that sure is an interesting interview.

      Suggests that RFK Jr. did/does (?) understand the need to get rid of the monsters, root and branch. Smash the combine into a thousand pieces.

      If this was to come true, I would be wary about attending any of those campaign rallies. I am sure the deep state would have one of them cues for demolition in order to take care of business.

      They would have to ensure they are never together at the same time in public, or they would have to retain body doubles.

        That’s why there weren’t more people at Bobby Jr.s anti-mandate event.

          I have wondered if that was the reason the Feb. 19 “Rage Against the.War Machine” rally was so sparsely attended. Fear of the dungeons. I wonder if there will ever again be a big public demonstration against the Establishment., if that is now, like personal privacy, simply a thing of the past.

    Related to Bobby Jr.s father, one of my favorite memories of my late brother is the way he really got a kick out of elections in America, the whole political process.

    In particular I remember how RFK was running for the Senate, and my brother went down to see him when he came to town.

    If I am remembering correctly, he went by himself.

    Trying to refresh my memory, I looked up what I could find about that day, and Bobby’s appearance was in the morning, during the work and school day.

    I have a vague memory that the teachers said they would excuse absences for students who attended, but I also seem to recall that there was no official school trip, he went there on his own, an eleven year old boy.

    I don’t really have a way of researching that, but young kids, particularly boys, did travel far and wide on their bicycles or even by bus.

    I went along one time when he was a little older, he and a friend went to all the storefront headquarters to see what sort of paraphernalia they were giving away.

    It was sort of like trick-or-treating.

    Election Day was a big deal back then. A half day off of school, a crosstown rivalry football game, bake sales, sound trucks…

    The whole community was involved.

    Anyway RFK had a pretty good crowd, maybe as many as 4,000, and it was exciting to see the pictures the next morning, in the local paper, of such a national figure, and to know that someone in my own family was there.

    • beantownbill. May 15, 2023 at 12:16 pm #

      I went to see a Harry Truman rally in my hometown in 1951. I stood 5 feet from him. I also went to a Nixon rally there. They set up a stage in the square and I stood behind it. I was real close, but all I saw was Nixon’s rear. Does that make me famous? For Nixon’s sake, it was a good thing I wasn’t like Joe Biden, or I might have reached out to fondle him.

      • Beryl of Oyl May 15, 2023 at 12:50 pm #

    I don’t get you people. Isn’t it obvious that ANYONE running for office is emotionally warped? This is one reason I don’t vote. I remember reading a science fiction story where no one could run for election. Instead, a computer picked out a citizen who would be president. That person, whether an office worker, an electrician, or a truck driver going about their business had to serve as president for 4 years, whether they wanted to or not. In real life, this concept probably wouldn’t work, but the story made a point.

    Trump, DeSantis or RFK, Jr. – the choices make me sick.

      One comment, Bill.

      Hundreds of thousands of the youth of America have gone to war defending the right of Americans to change their government with the vote, with many giving their lives. Even if it seems useless, it is our duty to vote our hearts.

      Looking at Biden yesterday declaring that White Supremacy is the number one enemy of the US, the number one terrorist threat, tells me that I will vote against these SOB despots at every opportunity I can.

      There is not much else left, and the Deep State is trying to undue that.

        “The ‘iron law of oligarchy’ states that all forms of organization, regardless of how democratic they may be at the start, will eventually and inevitably develop oligarchic tendencies, thus making true democracy practically and theoretically impossible, especially in large groups and complex organizations. The relative structural fluidity in a small-scale democracy succumbs to ‘social viscosity’ in a large-scale organization. According to the ‘iron law’, democracy and large-scale organization are incompatible.” ~ Wikipedia

        “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. I more or less ignore them and I pay attention to municipal politics and things at lower levels, but I don’t expect anything good from the top down…” ~ Nicole Foss

        “Consequently, resources that have traditionally been managed communally by local organizations have been enclosed or privatized. Ostensibly, this serves to ‘protect’ such resources, but it ignores the pre-existing management, often appropriating resources and alienating indigenous (and frequently poor) populations. In effect, private or State use may result in worse outcomes than the previous management of commons.” ~ Wikipedia, ‘Tragedy of the Commons’

      ANYONE running is warped etc? Well shucks, it sounds to me that you might be someone who’d be interested in checking out the Mad Monarch’s website. This site is primarily about the history and traditions of monarchies, from ancient to modern. The site owner doesn’t ever post his real name or email adress. He doesn’t like getting contacted by people who are very upset about his pro-monarchy views. We’ve all been taught from first grade on up that monarchies are bad, nothing good or positive about them. And here’s a copy paste from the MM’s site:

      popular claim: “Monarchs are so set apart, they cannot represent ordinary people.”

      MM replies: “Actually, that is precisely why they can represent everyone in a way no politician ever could. President Hollande of France is an agnostic socialist, so how can he truly represent those French who are Catholic or capitalists? President Napolitano of Italy was a long-time communist, which is certainly not representative of most Italians. President Obama of the US, a liberal from Hawaii, cannot have much in common with a conservative from South Carolina. Yet, a monarch, because they are set apart, can represent everyone because they are not from any particular group.”

      popular claim: “Republics bring progress, monarchies only oppressed.”

      MM replies:

      “Historical fact says otherwise. Time and time again history has shown that the end of monarchy makes things worse for a country, not better. In France it resulted in the “Reign of Terror” that saw tens of thousands of people get their heads chopped off. In Russia, the loss of the monarchy allowed the Bolsheviks to take power who then created the Soviet Union which spread oppression around the world and murdered millions of people. In China the result was a chaotic period of warlord rule followed by the bloodiest civil war in human history and then a communist dictatorship that took the lives of 60 million people. The end of monarchy in Germany and Austria resulted in divided republics that allowed Adolf Hitler to come to power, devastate the continent and butcher 9 million people. The fall of the Shah of Iran allowed a radical theocracy to take power that has spread terrorism around the world and brutally oppressed its own people. These are only a few of the examples that could be cited and the facts are inarguable.”

    The security state is just another element of the Deep State. The primary job of all parts of the Deep State is the preservation of its own existence. This is paramount to party, constituents, even the US Constitution.

    Think of all the drives the DS is involved in. Globalization, socialization harboring on communism, state ownership of everything, keeping all state information from the press and public with “classification”. The DOJ is no longer a protector of the judicial system from the power of the state, it is used as a control of the judiciary over the people. The double standard of the Biden Mob with the Trump clan is a perfect example of the DS bias shown by the Leftist DOJ.

    The Deep State is the result of seventy years of concerted effort by the Left communistic element of the country. The power boys, the boys and girls that think they are smarter than the Founding Fathers and the people today. NAU had Bill Gates as a speaker and he was disgusting according to my grandson. “This generation is going to fix all the bad stuff that America has created” to paraphrase him. He forgot to ad, “With me in the lead, because I know best.”

    The Deep State is after the last obstacle to its uncontrolled power, the electorate. Changes to voting has allowed the huge influx of really stupid people, people with no idea of what America was created for and designed for, The power of the people over the government. The of, by and for of Lincoln’s oratory. That is the bullseye of the communistic Deep State, the removal of the power of the people to remove bad governance. We are currently about 90% of the way to that end. Proof of this is the total despotic takeover of the press, the watchdog of the people, by the Deep State. It still amazes me how this was done, but the changes at Fox is evidence of the slow insidious methods used to undermine opponents of the Leftist Deep State. Is the New York Post, or Newsmax next? This despotic government has shown the ability to destroy every spark of opposition, and that is the most scary thing there is.

    God loves irony. The fact that the BRICS++ may end up being the defenders of Republican democracy against the globalist dictators of the US and the WEF has got to be one of the biggest ironies of human history. Could it be that God no longer views the USA as following His creative efforts with the Founding Fathers? Has He deserted the USA? If so, the American experiment of people controlling their government is over.

    • Woodchuck May 15, 2023 at 2:27 pm #

      Who can tell for sure what God is thinking or planning? Around a thousand years ago a monolithic Church split into two separate pieces that mutually excommunicated each other. It was really tough, say, for an Eastern Orthodox Christian to receive communion in a Roman Catholic Church. Neither faction would recognize the other side as legitimate. So imagine that this issue appears in front of none other than God himself in God’s court. He has to look at the situation of the church splitting in half and determine which side had a legitimate complaint and which side was the source of the trouble. Should God choose a side or should He remain neutral and stay out of it. If God knows everything that’s going on anyway maybe He knows damn well which half has been listening to satan. What if God chose the Eastern position a long time ago and he is backing the Russians instead of us? The other possibility is God thinks both Orthodox and Roman Christians were and are listening to satan. His Church has failed him in every official way and God is getting more and more pissed at humanity by the second.

        The church splits in half and one half invades Constantinople, killing thousands, burning the city and allowing the Muslims to take over.

        Then that same half instituted a bloody takeover of Europe and set up a brutal occupation that lasted for centuries.

        Same half supported the Nazis in the 30s, and is now doing the same, while the Nazis they support wage war against the Eastern Orthodox Church in Ukraine.

          PaulaD, If you believe there is a God (and I do) it seems to me that my trying to understand why He does or doesn’t do any particular thing is like an ant trying to understand my own activities. If He exists, he sees the widest of all pictures whereas we see a single dot on the canvas.

          Any being that exists on a higher spiritual plane than I do will be pretty much beyond my understanding. There are things that an adult cannot make a child understand, no matter how smart the child is – and I think we’re not particularly smart children. Somewhere in the Narnia books, Lewis beautifully illustrates this point with his dimwittedly disobedient creatures, the Dufflepuds.

      Johnson takes the reigns as Lightfoot’s office came under fire from fed-up citizens after demanding she receive an annual pay rise of 5 percent, despite facing growing criticism over her handling of violent crime in the city, as well as her failure to address its historically high murder rate.

      Lightfoot, currently takes home an annual salary of $209,915, made the brazen request Wednesday in an ordinance that would give the mayor, city clerk, and treasurer access to a pay increase each year.

      If approved, the pay bump would see the city official’s salary rise to $216,210 starting May 22 of next year.

    “the security state, the agency heads and their officers in the Intel Community and all its spinoffs, the State Department, the Justice Department, and the Defense Department and their accomplices in Congress and the federal judiciary.”

    This is a perfect tail-wagging-dog scenario.

    The State Department, the Department of Justice, the Department of Defense are part of the Executive Branch. Their boss is the president—for better or for worse. They are not spinoffs of the Intel Community. Neither is Congress a spinoff.

    That fact that the CIA and other intel entities seems to rule two branches of the US Government as if they were subdivisions of the “Intel Community” is absolutely shocking.

    Furthermore, the military profile of this country seems now to be run out of the State Department, not the Defense Department, by staffers who know nothing about either the conduct of war or procurement. Their forte is sabotage and other dirty tricks, a la the CIA.

    Most shocking is that no one seems to care or notice.

    Who is the Deep State? My guess: the CIA and the banksters. The former need the latter to help them hide and launder $$$$.

    Some tough-talking hick congressman from Misery, er, Missouri, has said that the “Democrat’s” plan is to overburden and destroy the present immigration system. From border officers to immigration court judges to asylum offices.

    Partisan, disingenuous, and partially correct.
    It’s a uniparty plan.

    Cue the big reveal: a Biden/Democrat plan to overhaul the immigration system. The big gimme for this year’s election: the promise of amnesty to follow. Included in the plan will be a modification of the present system that allows permanent resident aliens to serve in the military. There will be a loosening of restrictions and a quicker promise of “regularization” and citizenship for those who serve.
    There is a reason why there are so many “military aged” entering: the meat grinder needs numbers.

    I decided not to get vaxxed because REALLY? A vaccine for a coronavirus?

    That was my WOMAN’S intuition.

    Then there was finding out that the damn thing wasn’t even a vaccine, it was an experimental gene therapy, and it didn’t actually stop anybody from getting or spreading the virus.

    A surprising number of people claiming to possess logic and reason and you know, The Science argued that I should not be calling this thing experimental gene therapy even though that’s what it is.

    If that’s reason over emotion you can keep it.

    The truth is many MEN forgot how to think when they became skeered of a cold virus after seeing that obvious commie propaganda of one moment of one day in an Italian ICU, or the people fine one minute and falling over the next in commie China.

    All this was right there from minute one. What kind of moron would think a ventilator was a cure for a virus? That was known and knowable right away, and whipping up hysteria worked and reason flew out the window.

      It was my understanding (??) that usage of a ventilator was to help victims breathe because they couldn’t get an adequate breath, not because they hoped it would cure covid. Am I wrong?

      • Beryl of Oyl May 15, 2023 at 5:08 pm #

        It was known early on that the use of ventilators might have been doing more harm than good.

        There is also some evidence that the reason less invasive forms of breathing assistance weren’t used before resorting to the ventilators was because they feared the virus spreading if it wasn’t contained via the tube down your throat.

        There’s also the fact that it was worked out early on that hospitals were paid a bounty to be shoving the tube down a patient’s throat.

        The patients were being told to go home and wait until they couldn’t breathe and then come back to get put on life support. They didn’t even have the right kind of ventilators either.

        It was planned that we would copy the Chicoms “response” and it was planned suspiciously early.

        No you aren’t wrong that the ventilators were employed to help patients breathe, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. They were employed as if that was the treatment protocol for the disease.

        “Doctors like Kyle-Sidell (who TIME could not reach for comment) argue these numbers are so high because physicians are ventilating patients as though they have a condition called acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), when they in fact have a different type of lung damage that may not respond well to mechanical ventilation. A group of European physicians submitted a letter to the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, published March 30, detailing COVID-19’s discrepancies from typical ARDS and calling on doctors to avoid jumping to unnecessary mechanical ventilation. Other physicians say mechanical ventilation can help some patients, but doctors are jumping to it too quickly, potentially subjecting patients to unnecessary traumatic treatment when they could use less-invasive respiratory supports like breathing masks and nasal tubes.”

            $35,000 for each ventilated patient.

          • WilliamShatnersPants May 16, 2023 at 8:01 pm #

            It’s not untrue that hospital compensation was raised if a patient required ventilation – the expense of that level of care is massively more than those who did not need it.

            What IS a ‘lie’ is the idea that it was a ‘bounty’ and that medical professionals would place people, unnecessarily, on a ventilator for ‘the money’. Utter bullshit.

            If the hospital beancounters were working in the acute wards, then I could entertain the idea that it may have happened in one or two isolated incidents, but how can you all smear the whole of the medical profession with this lie, for fuck’s sake!

          • Paula D May 17, 2023 at 11:38 am #

            It was a bounty, because it was on top of the usual hospital billing for ventilator care.

            Apparently you have never worked in a hospital. The doctors and nurses don’t make the financial decisions, the administrator does.

            As I pointed out in an above comment, all you need to do is influence the decision-makers, and they will issue the orders that everyone else must follow.

            The government gives a bonus for ventilators, the administration writes a protocol, everyone downhill follows the protocol. Or else.

            The hospitals also received bonuses for each covid diagnosis, in case you are wondering why the USA had such high covid cases compared to the rest of the world.

            Am I impugning the purity of the US medical-industrial complex, including the doctors who follow the decrees?

            Why, yes, yes, I am.

        This thread talks about a another look at the covid data, and yes, The Market Ticker dude did talk about this quite some time ago:

        BREAKING: A new analysis suggests that ventilators used for treating COVID-19 patients helped attribute to more deaths than the virus alone.

        https://twitter.com/Jabbed_Pandemic/status/1657347833522016256?cxt=HHwWgMC-5drEioAuAAAA

        • Paula D May 17, 2023 at 11:49 am #

          The ventilators were used for people in respiratory distress, which usually showed up about 8 days after the viral illness The virus was usually gone by then. The respiratory distress was caused by a cytokine storm in those few patients.

          I watched a video of a doctor in New York who was in charge of a covid ward, and he was puzzling that the ventilators were not working. This was in late March, 2020.
          He pointed out that the mechanism of distress was not the usual for pneumonia that doctors are used to.

          Usually you put people on ventilators because they are worn out from struggling to breathe, but these covid patients were not struggling for breath, they just had ridiculously low O2 saturations.
          Clearly there was another mechanism of distress in play. But these people were really sick, in any case. They didn’t just put anyone on a vent.

          They figured it out eventually, but in the meantime, the media and the government pushed hard for ventilators.

          I remember distinctly reporters pushing Trump to provide more ventilators, and newspapers accusing him of personally failing in the ventilator manufacturing department.

          It reminded me of the Idiot Reagan and his announcement that we could survive nuclear war With Enough Shovels, (which we were supposed to use to dig nuclear shelters, after we turned in our Change-of-Address cards).

          With Enough Ventilators we will all survive!

          And the government made sure that hospitals would go along with the plan, by giving a $35,000 bonus for each ventilated patient.

    Re: “They still can’t admit that getting vaxxed and boosted was a tragic mistake.”

    Who said it was a mistake? Clearly, this vaccine was prepared well in advance of the Covid outbreak, even having some of its RNA sequence appearing in a Moderna/NIAID patent several years earlier. The case can be made that Covid was the pretext by which the populace was persuaded to accept this “vaccine”. One is left to consider the possibility that the intention all along was population reduction rather than disease prevention.

      It had several purposes if you listen to the WEFers talk and read their own white papers and take other contextual evidence into account.

      Depopulation yes, but also the gateway to a digital ID/vaccine passport system, similar to what is done in China (which WEFers claim is a model society).

      Lastly, it would have brought in medical tyranny, initially in the form of a forced vaccination model with new shots required for participation in society every few months. This part was openly discussed by the perpetrators here in Germany and elsewhere.

    “The elite now have to wake up every day and wonder if the vaccines they rushed to get will end up killing them prematurely.”

    ‘Prematurely’ depends on which point-of-view one is looking from. But of course, it would be a damn shame if these gods-among-us had to suffer the consequences of something that they had savagely foisted upon humanity.

    “… what exactly is the relationship between the political elite and this security state?”

    They each have headquarters in the same Deep State building just down the hall from each other. Also in that building: MIC, the Medical Mafia, State Corporate News, and other various rogues and never-do-wells…

    “…now that Mr. Trump is resurging from a thousand attempts to kill him off like some implacable axe-murderer in a horror movie, the corps of useful idiots is showing signs of nervous exhaustion.”

    The 2024 Election is setting up to be the most toxic in American History… a long history that has not exactly been the smoothest ride on the river. Many people have either already given up on the process or they believe it is so tainted with manipulation that the whole country is now 1960’s Chicago under Old Boss Daley always coming up with ‘Whatever We Need…’

    “… an election contest between RFK, Jr. and Donald Trump would be a most salutary exercise for our country.”

    An election like that would be a miracle with all the forces of Darkness working against both of them constantly.

    “It would also be the Baby Boomers’ last stand.”

    It’s been said that the Boomers were the first generation in history that never wanted to grow up. And maybe they were really on to something… Who the hell ever wants to grow up in a world that looks like THIS? And before you say the state of the World is the Boomers fault… Boomers only get a share of the blame. All generations have lustily contributed equally to the dismantling of the United States.

    Including some of those who came before Boomers were just winks in the Greatest Generation’s Eyes.

    I think you are correct that despite a few flaws, RFK jr is the guy we need, not just Democrats. The nation needs him but we really deserve a vengeful Trump.

    Excluding the few sane voices out there such as yourself, most of the American people kept their mouths shut during the numerous deadly hoaxes perpetrated on us. It didn’t take a genius to see through the Russian collusion hoax, if Trump was a traitor, the NSA would have receipts. Turns out, the NSA are traitors…
    It didn’t a take a genius to see that the vaccines, at best, never worked. I am guilty of not expressing my vaccine hesitancy to my coworkers, due to my cowardice. Even though I couldn’t know how right we would turn out to be, I still feel guilty. Maybe I could’ve convinced one of them to not let their kids get it.

    Times are going to be tough no matter what, but right now I think a vengeful Trump and all the dark things that may result from that are the best we can hope for.

    The longer we deny reality the harder it’s going to hurt when we imminently crash into it.

    Jim K has presented an extremely accurate observation about our national security managers when he states:

    “The dirty secret of the security state is that it’s not about the security of the state. That is the nation known as the USA. It is about the security of the people running the security state, the agency heads and their officers in the Intel community and all its spinoffs…”

    I would argue that it is this stratum of individuals which is truly in charge of our country including both its foreign and domestic policy. Back in 2020, Barton Gellman wrote an eye-opening book “Dark Mirror: Edward Snowden and the American Surveillance State” in which he maintained that the essence of its power was its accelerating digital capability. He believes that sometime between 2011 and 2013 the power equation within our country shifted profoundly in favor of the NSA/FBI/CIA complex with the completion of what he called a real time map of American life, a type of surveillance time machine consisting of telephone logs and social graphs in which the security apparatus could now track us in retrospect as easily as if it had tracked us in real time.

    The creation of such a digital surveillance apparatus (called Mainway), stored within the bowels of the NSA, profoundly changed the balance of power between government and governed. Gellman consequently argues that such tools have given this national security network the self-confidence to move ahead with the consolidation of its power, as seen today, through the gradual implementation of counter-terrorism tactics on our domestic population.

      Some of us don’t need writers/books to form our opinions, at least all or most of them, and often ideas in books can even corrupt our thinking and acting, perhaps especially the more impressionable.

      And then it’s off to the races… wherever they may lead… maybe clean off the proverbial Wile E. Coyote’s cliff… and a ‘dirt nap’…

        Completely missed my point; rather, purposely ignored it. I didn’t need to read that schlock to gain any perspective of my own, nor would I have chosen to without a reason.

      Hey Za, gotta give props to Jar for that one, I’m reading it everywhere now, but he said it first, here.

      There’s another one too, can’t remember it just now, maybe it’ll come to me.

      And Za, Anarchy isn’t the answer, it isn’t gonna work.

        Zaz is here to convince us that Anarchism hasn’t been a murderous, blood soaked screed that lends itself to assassination, mass murder, destruction of property, and undermining of institutions ~ all evidence to the contrary.

        It looks like I’m going to have to start digging into history and listing Anarchist depredations. It’s a long list, starting about 1870, and continuing right up until today.

        A dirt nap? Who knows where they got it from, but whatever…

        Relative anarchy is our natural wiring. Maybe you need to look up a proper definition.

        It’s the large-scale centralized State system that is new and fundamentally in cognitive dissonance with the tribal species that we still are and probably will remain as this civ comes to a slow and grinding decline.

        So, yes, anarchy is and will be the answer, as it always has been. Some, like you apparently, just don’t know it yet.

        Otherwise, you’re happy in the matrix/truman show/zoo/Plato’s Cave. Take your pick or roll your own.

        • anmariwakaranai May 15, 2023 at 4:54 pm #

          Dirt nap is a pithy phrase I probably picked up from Gerald Celente or some such talking about Zimbabwe back in the day.

          I am ALL about decentralization Za, and the less gov the better. But Anarchy? Who is going to respect your boundaries under that apalling idea?

          Methinks you go too deep sometimes, parsing the letter and missing the mark which is freedom of choice under a loose coalition under God

          And His son Jesus Christ, and our Advocate, the Holy Spirit, not a bird, but a person.

          I understand you don’t believe, and that is your right Za. But Anarchy? Ffs

          Btw, I firmly believe, in the end, after the warning, that even Islam will be in said coalition, and I honestly hope you will too once you see Him and your conscience.

    You are absolutely correct about all of that James.

    1- Jesus comes back and jails the money changers.
    2- The cold Civil War goes hot. We get 2.0, and the leftists get routed. They have few weapons, and even less knowledge of how they function.
    3-We cut off the parasite that is the IRS. Stop feeding the beast en-mass.

    Amren

    The Art Institute of Chicago has sponsored a volunteer docent program since 1961. The volunteer basis of the program has never served as an excuse for lax standards. Prospective docents attend curatorial lectures, read widely in the museum’s library, and write papers proposing ways to communicate art historical concepts to children and other visitors. The 18-month training program is run with “military” discipline, according to one trainee, and gives docents a body of knowledge virtually equivalent to a Master of Fine Arts degree. Even after graduating, docents follow up with ongoing study of art history and pedagogy.

    In September 2021, the Art Institute shut down this program because too many of the docents were white. More than 80 unpaid docents were replaced with six salaried, part-time employees chosen on the basis of their anti-racist credentials. Obviously, they will be unable to offer nearly as many tours or presentations, and the chances that they will be as passionate about art as the white volunteers are nil. Following the docent sacking, letter writers to the Chicago Tribune speculated that if the Art Institute can do without volunteers, it must not need financial support either.

    Jarek: Behold the dying of the light. Islander talked about this awhile back. What a wonderful thing this program must have been for some. Someone who had loved art all of their life, but hadn’t dared to major in it. Perhaps an ex-housewife or retiree with the time on their hands to get the equivalent of a Master’s Degree In Art – and then share it with others.

    What kind of tours can the diversity hires give? All they know about is diversity, and what is that but being anti-White?

    • The Man They Call Zazelle May 15, 2023 at 3:39 pm #

      ‘White’ is judging a book by its cover. You can get some idea of the book, but once you open it and read it, the notions you may have once had by its cover fall away.

    • BackRowHeckler May 15, 2023 at 4:05 pm #

      This Chicago Art Institute sounds like it will be a good target for looter & arsonists when sh#t breaks loose in Chi this summer. “It be full of racist art, dat sh#t burn real good.” Of course the museum Directors will beg to agree — how could they not? — and might even lend a hand in dragging priceless art exhibits (testaments to the achievements of western civilization) off the shelves and tossing them out into the bonfire on the street, where roving gangs of Crips, Bloods, Gangster Disciples and Blackstone Rangers are stopping traffic and dragging people out of cars.

      How do you like it now, Gentlemen?

      • Jarek May 15, 2023 at 4:24 pm #

        The new “docents” will unlock the doors for them – and show them the most expensive stuff for selling not burning.

        • Islander May 15, 2023 at 6:34 pm #

          This has been happening across the board in museums large and small. As I think I mentioned in my original post about this, the same kind of thing occurred locally. A longtime docent (who also happened to be a “local girl” with family connections to a lot of the types of material in the institution), was told she had to go through a whole new raft of training at the behest of the new hire, and would have to apply again to be docent.
          No seniority.
          No respect, actually.
          She said no thank-you.

      Jarek, I recall reading about this when it occurred. It made me heartsick. What a perfect illustration of our gleeful destruction of everything of value that we possess! The thought of all that painstakingly acquired knowledge simply being thrown away – I can only imagine the bitterness and rage in the hearts of those docents.

    • The Man They Call Zazelle May 15, 2023 at 3:59 pm #

      Some people would seem to do well to ask themselves if their online free speech would still stand in person, verbatim.

      Some of us already know the answer.

      Free speech has consequences. Some consequences can be felt right away, while others take time to filter through the systems.

      • SoftStarLight May 15, 2023 at 4:13 pm #

        A review of the Constitution may assist you in determining that there is no mention of the consequences of free speech or a concern thereof. However, no doubt the current power centers are very concerned about the consequences of free speech for their criminal enterprises. Thank you for the amazing clarifications on this wonderful Monday. It would be interesting to see if our host agrees with you on the consequences of free speech.

            You can’t really have free speech in its purest form on an Internet message board, because the Cargill-types simply make the board unreadable by flooding the space with hundreds of posts.

            In real life, the crowd will get rid of those types. JHK’s comment section is about as close to a free-speech zone as one can get on the Internet.

    ‘White’ or ‘Black’ or whatever have you as a socio-racial construct is rather like a radically-distorted, worn, faded and damaged freeze-frame or two of the real life motion picture of evolution and adaptation…

    Attempting to take those kinds of frames, as problematic as they already are, and inorganically anchor them misses the whole point of systemic change, evolution and adaptation and how people came to be in the first place.

          Yeah. It was amazing to me how in high school all the groups segregated themselves in the cafeteria despite being able to technically sit with whomever they wished to.

            The Neanderthals’ Last Pitch

            Government schools are segregations in and of themselves, such as by age, whereas government curricula (brainwashing/ideological kidnapping) are mandatory for some ages in some places.

            Weird, sexualized library books/readings anyone?

            Cliques and other groups come and go and change as people grow, move and future Earth dynamics place different sorts of pressures to adapt, or die.

            Perhaps the last few Neanderthals thought that it was in their best interests to pitch their last remnants into that other offshoot.

          • SoftStarLight May 16, 2023 at 3:32 am #

            Because we were essentially told that everyone should associate with everyone and there should be no boundaries or barriers. I mean essentially that was the message ingrained in everything whether music, media, etc. And yet people would end up self separating into more or less homogenous groups. Not always just simply by race but also social levels and style of dress etc. But race was also a big segregation factor. So I was always like why do people do that until I just figured that maybe people felt more comfortable that way.

          • Mike Sherman May 16, 2023 at 11:52 pm #

            “Because we were essentially told that everyone should associate with everyone and there should be no boundaries or barriers.”

          • Jarek May 17, 2023 at 12:56 pm #

            No one has to say it or lay down an edict (yet). It’s implicit in not letting people freely associate with their own kind.

    • Jarek May 15, 2023 at 4:38 pm #

      Yes, different groups being treated different ways for different purposes. The overriding strategy is to pull down the White man and his civilization. The tactics are many and changing. But the goal (a One World State) and the strategy (the destruction of the West via racial mixture) is clear and unchanging.

      They may try the same with East Asia. Japan is said to be weakening with many young Japanese open to immigration. China stands strong, but their presence in Africa is leading to mixing with native women.

      • SoftStarLight May 15, 2023 at 5:05 pm #

        Yes, and for those who are concerned with talking about the racial aspect of these things can certainly look to other issues to see that this migration and mixing can have very deleterious impacts. I saw footage this weekend of all of the trash left by illegal migrants at the border in otherwise untouched xeric shrubland and riparian areas and the sights were truly devastating and heartbreaking. There is no telling how many animals were killed and eaten too in the deserts by these people. We know they have killed eagles right here within the country.

      Anarcho-tyranny sounds like an oxymoron in an attempt at its marginalization

      —-

      The Reduction of Anarchism to Marginalisation

      “By crafty methods, not used against other political theories, it is endeavoured by Statist propaganda to marginalise Anarchism to nothing. It is confused by journalists, professors, and subsidised ‘researchers’ to show that Anarchists are identical to dropouts, drug-takers, nationalist assassins, New-Age travelers, political dissidents, militant trade unionists, young rebels, middle-class theorists, dreamers, plotters, comedians, frustrated reformers, extreme pacifists, murderers, schoolboy rebels, and criminals. Some Anarchists, one supposes, could be any but hardly all of these — as could members of all political persuasions — but none could be descriptive of the cause. By misuse of the word ‘Anarchist’, or by added ‘alleged’ or ‘self-confessed’ Anarchist; or by conjoining the word with an obvious contradiction, Anarchism can be marginalised and, by implication, Statist theories made to seem the norm.” ~ Albert Meltzer

        My ideal , for lack of a better one ,

        was the Holy Roman Empire of the German People.

        Which they liked to say was not Holy , was not Roman , and was not an empire.

        I’m not sure anyone ever wrote out an exhaustive list of the states in the HRE ?

        First , because the number varied from time to time , or even from day to day.

        Secondly , because the whole subject was maddeningly complicated.

        Some ” states ” ( ? ) in the HRE were no bigger than your typical suburban lot , or even a single building.

        And they took different forms. Some states were theocracies ; The guy in charge was a Bishop , and the folks running things down at the Department of Motor Vehicles were ordained Priests.

        Some States were ” Free Cities ” ; Think Chicago meets the Wild Wild West.

        ( Though , near as I can tell , Chicago ALWAYS HAS BEEN the Wild Wild West —- as imagined by a Stalinist. )

        Anyway , my guess is if you called the Holy Roman Emperor an Anarchist , or had called his many tin pot German and Italian Robber Barons Anarchists ,

        they would have been decidedly nonplussed.

        On this side of the pond ,

        I have always been fond of the Confederate States of America.

        Folks in pretty grey uniforms with a prettier flag , wild Indians and French – speaking Creoles.

        It was simply a reflection of the fact that America never was one culture , and one nation ,

        except in the wet dreams of New Yorkers , Bostonians , and Washingtonians.

    Just read a story that they are starting testing on a universal flu vaxx based on mRNA technology.

    Great! I wonder how many people this one will kill?

    Why test? Just tell the stupid American public that it is good for them. They will believe anything. Even after the Covid debacle.

    The security state started officially in 1947, when Congress passed the National Security Act.

    The CIA developed from the wartime OSS, and it was officially disbanded after the war, but it never really disbanded.

    For the years between the end of the war and the official taxpayer’s support, they supported themselves mostly by drug running, allying themselves with the Kuomintang in the Golden Triangle.

    They were also supported by certain wealthy benefactors.

    For a while, they were known as Wall Street’s hitmen. The top men at the CIA were Wall Street bankers and lawyers, and they recruited at Ivy League colleges, until they went Woke.

    The CIA overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran in 1953, in support of US and UK oil companies.
    They overthrew the government of Guatemala in support of John Foster Dulles’ United Fruit.

    Technically, the CIA is under the Executive Branch, but I think that if anyone actually believes that the president controls them, they might want to review the Zapruder tape.
    JFK fired Allen Dulles and vowed to break the CIA into a thousand pieces and throw them to the wind.

    Congress appointed Allen Dulles controller of the Warren Commission. Who is in charge?

    The National Security Apparatus has grown since 1963, especially after the spectacular production on Sept. 11, 2001, which led to the Patriot Act, the Homeland Security Act, the Military Commissions Act, and the establishment of the Director of National Intelligence, and NORTHCOM. The fusion centers centralize information collected about America citizens and the Utah Data Center in Provo is a massive sprawling center of oppression.

    • MaryQueen May 16, 2023 at 8:45 am #

      They also began their MKUltra and other psyops then, including bioweapons development and drugs, like LSD, which they released on the public under the guise of it being a way to “turn on” among the hippie culture. The most famous event around that of course is the death of Frank Olson. They also sprayed the coast of SF with a bioweapon in 1957 (well documented, written about) and no one said much about it, which is probably why they still run rampant killing and maiming the populace today.

    The beauty of the universe is in its infinite diversity.

    Yet there are those who want to create “tan man” by blending all the races together to create a low IQ serf with no history or traditions – and thus no loyalties.

    This is known as the Kalergi Plan, named after a mixed Austrian/Japanese nobleman who hated the people of Europe with a passion. Or perhaps one of his Jewish girlfriends or wives put the idea in his head.

    homeland security is coordinating with the Mexican side having them fill out asylum app electronically then loading them on buses to cross the border into the US where they are being released.

    There’s large groups of thousands heading to the border.

    Add in the 60,000 unscreened Afghanistan folks being brought over and it’s a perfect storm.

    Many of the illegal immigrants are being housed in school gyms in the northeast and jb just announced they will be eligible for work permits after 6 months…what happened to the rule of law?

    • SoftStarLight May 16, 2023 at 3:18 am #

      Well, come to find out that the rule of law is some sort of globalist satanist talking point that in reality represents the complete opposite of what you may think the rule of law means. “Rule of law” is like “our democracy” iow.

      • Paula D May 16, 2023 at 2:07 pm #

        If you actually listen to the globalist satanists, they don’t talk about the rule of law at all.

        They are pushing the “rules-based order”, instead.

        The rules-based order, as Putin frequently points out, has no basis in any sort of written law or international treaty.

        It means that the US makes up rules, announces them, and then punishes anyone who “disobeys” them, usually with sanctions, but sometimes with bombings and assassinations.

        It’s rather like “community standards” in social media. What are these community standards?
        They are vague and amorphous, used to ban and censor heretics and dissidents.
        There are no methods of appeal. There are no judges or courts.

        For both the rules-based order and the social media community standards, there is no written guidance nor accountable executors.

        It is global cap gone wild.

        • SoftStarLight May 16, 2023 at 5:30 pm #

          Very good point! Yes, the rules based order. As if anyone would even know what that is. Whose rules? What rules? Ah ok, their rules!

    Dear JHK Admin,
    “By then, Mr. Trump was out, too, deposed in a janky election rigged with Covid-19 ballot “innovations” that made fraud easy.”
    You can say this as much as you want but in the absence of evidence that would stand up in a court of law that would show the widespread systemic voter fraud that you assert, this is nothing more than a desperate claim meant to help explain why what happened–Mr. Trump was booted out of office because he was an awful President–as being due instead to the machinations of “the deep state.” Sorry–but you don’t have any evidence that would stand up in a court of law. We know this because those folks with standing to make the case–never could. And that is a story that many here do not want to face. Not a single one of your predictions claiming that the election fraud cover-up would be blown up and uncovered for all to see have came true. No krakens were unleashed; … anyway, the point is that saying that something happened does not mean that it did. So, why do you keep affirming something that you have so little evidence for?

    “… pardon all the people on the Right who were unjustly prosecuted.” Is this a reference to the folks who have been prosecuted for their role in the 6 Jan 2021 Insurrection at the Capital? It seems odd that jury after jury of these folks’ peers have found these folks guilty of a variety of crimes including seditious conspiracy. Of 45 defendants tried so far, only one so far has been acquitted. That doesn’t sound like “unjust prosecution,” where rates of acquittal would be much higher one would presume. I am sure all those police officers injured by those folks peaceably protesting must be thinking how unfair it is for those boisterous people to be sentenced to gaol time for their enthusiastic presence at the Capitol on 6 Jan 2021. You can have both people protesting peaceably AND other folks who aimed to misbehave in brutal ways that were premeditated or carried along by the naughtiness of those around them. The second group are guilty of numerous illegal acts.

      The ‘janky election’ trope has worn so thin, it’s now transparent. Guiliani, as early as February 2019, is reported to have predicted this bullshit as a strategy:

      “In February 2019, the complaint notes, Giuliani told Dunphy about then-President Donald Trump’s plan if he were to lose the 2020 election. “Specifically, Giuliani told Ms. Dunphy that Trump’s team would claim that there was ‘voter fraud’ and that Trump had actually won the election,” the complaint states. “This plan was discussed at several business meetings with Giuliani and Lev Parnas.” ”

      But you just believe what you want to believe NightOwl. It’s just one of the myriad delusions you harbor.

        Whenever I think of Ann Frank, I think of the thousands of German girls who were raped to death by the Russians and Allies.

        Why didn’t we focus on one of them, complete with pictures and little diary? Personalize!

        They are so much better at this than we are.

        As Stalin said, one death is a tragedy and a million just a statistic. There speaks a Master Manipulator of fallen humanity.

      Glad to see you haven’t abandoned us, Slugoon – I was wondering!

      Did you see this? Dr Paul Alexander has written a few speculative pieces about pilots collapsing or otherwise having ‘medical incidents’.

      palexander.substack.com/p/9-pilot-incapacitations-and-3-pilot

      He has also said that there are rumours about regarding the introduction of single-pilot commercial flights, which could be disastrous in the circumstances. He says all pilots should be specifically tested for sub-clinical myocarditis in order to be able to fly. O
