Historians of the future, gathered round their campfires poaching armadillo tail-flaps in their own shells, will harken back to the wondrous day in 2024 when they could watch and compare two heads of great nations present themselves to the world for assessment. There was Mr. Putin of the land called Russia, calmly discoursing in fine detail on a thousand years of his country’s history. And there was Mr. Biden of the USA, facing the White House press pool, angrily refuting a special prosecutor’s glum conclusion that the President was not mentally competent to be tried in court on the finding that he’d indeed mishandled classified documents.

      The contrast between the two figures might even alert the mandarins of our Ivy League that something has gone very wrong in this country for a decade or more, and could arouse suspicions among the faculties that they had been gulled into a false view of our recent history. Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report issued Thursday said it rather plainly:

    In his interview with our office, Mr. Biden’s memory was worse. He did not remember when he was vice president, forgetting on the first day of the interview when his term ended (“if it was 2013, when did I stop being Vice President?”), and forgetting on the second day of the interview when his term began (“in 2009, am I still Vice president?”). He did not remember even within several years, when his son Beau died. And his memory appeared hazy when describing the Afghanistan debate that was once so important to him.”

     The disclosure raises not a few uncomfortable questions. If Mr. Biden’s declining mental condition was apparent to federal attorneys interviewing him — admittedly not top psychologists — then wouldn’t the same picture present itself to the scores of assistants and subalterns busy toiling with the president around the clock for three years in the White House? Not to mention the myriad other government officials, agency heads, corporate nabobs, and news media notables streaming through the Oval Office every hour of the day? And yet, every last one of them has gone along with the pretense that Mr. Biden is doing just fine and is capable of running for reelection. Weird, a little bit.

     If there has been any discussion about Mr. Biden being in possession of the so-called “nuclear football,” the briefcase full of launch codes for our arsenal of missiles and bombers, it has gone unnoticed in the press. I suppose a conspiracy to suppress that chatter would be labeled a “conspiracy theory,” which also suggests that Mr. Biden’s mental deficiencies have somehow infected the entire body politic of the USA. That is, much of the whole US population is mentally unwell, living in a national hall of mirrors. How did that happen? Is it possible that there are branches of our government dedicated to driving the population crazy. . . a kind of ordeal-by-gaslight?

      That impression was only reinforced by listening to the president of our supposed adversary, Russia, Mr. Putin, in his confab with independent journalist Tucker Carlson. For one thing, Mr. Putin dared to express the likelihood that somebody, or group of somebodies, must be secretly running the executive branch of America’s government behind the mentally vacant figurehead “President Biden,” but Mr. Putin would not venture to guess who that might be.

     What Mr. Putin displayed most of all was an air of prudence, an awareness that America’s behavior has become increasingly and dangerously unhinged over the years he’s been in power, requiring much delicacy and Christian patience not to worsen. Ukraine was at the center of the discussion, of course, since it has become a point of dangerous geopolitical inflammation. It is unclear whether the American audience was able to follow Mr. Putin’s detailed disquisition on the history of Ukraine, and how lately it eventuated in America’s bungling effort to wrest it out of Russia’s sphere of influence. He explained his view of events around the “Maidan coup” of 2014 and NATO’s repudiation of the Minsk Agreements that might have satisfactorily ended hostilities and provided a framework for reestablishing Ukraine’s status as a neutral borderland between Europe and Asia.

      Mr. Putin also confirmed my own conjecture: that, after the fall of the USSR, Russia had one overriding concern in foreign affairs: to be re-admitted to the European family of nations as a once-again “normal,” member, especially in trade relations, after seventy-five years of its peculiar communist experiment. He spoke of this quite ruefully as a lost opportunity to shore up Western Civilization — now engaged in a mystifying act of mass suicide that Russia decidedly wishes to opt out of by strategically reorienting with the BRICs bloc.

      This Friday morning, the USA is fraught with events unspooling. As I write, with dawn just breaking, there is almost zero opinion yet formed about these troubling matters on the vast Internet — but it will probably come in hot-and-heavy as the day ticks on. If Mr. Biden is truly mentally incompetent, as established more-or-less legally by Special Counsel Hur, then there is the obvious remedy of the 25th amendment — removal of a president for reason of disability. A debate over this would seem unavoidable now. The question also implies that Mr. Biden’s charade of running for reelection must come to an end. What will the Democratic party do about that?

     A not inconsiderable part of our Ukraine problem has been that our chief executive was for years engaged in bribery and money-laundering misadventures there, for which there is abundant and powerful evidence, meaning he may have had very personal interests in keeping that country disordered — and sending billions of dollars there, some of it surely embezzled among the Zelensky government. You’d have to also be aware that the bag-man in those operations, the President’s son, Hunter, might well have misbehaved with drugs and prostitutes on his many trips to Ukraine as a board member of Burisma. Hunter’s self-compiled archive of round-the-world drug-fueled porn recordings on the laptop that (the FBI confirmed recently) was unquestionably his own, suggests that the Ukraine authorities may have their own recordings of him behaving similarly, or worse, and are using them to blackmail “President Joe Biden.”

      We will also learn the judgment, probably with remarkable dispatch, of the Supreme Court in the matter of Colorado kicking Donald Trump off the election ballot. Meanwhile, the case against Mr. Trump in Fulton County, Georgia, is falling apart in DA Fani Willis’s pathetically comical scandal, now with a new “love nest” twist (paid for with public money). And Judge Engoron and AG Letitia James might be weighing the fates of their reputations in the shabbily-conducted and bogus real estate valuation fraud case against Mr. Trump, which will eventually be vivisected at some level of appeal. The old saying remains powerful: There are decades when nothing happens, and weeks when decades happen.

    I think that Dennis Miller is right when he said that things have gone too far now. Just look at how Karin JP spins the narrative around Joe Biden. It won’t be much longer before they roll out Michelle Obama as their choice to run in Joe’s place.

      That arrogant DIEversity hire called addressing a statement of fact by a reporter “going down that rabbit hole”.

      The DIEversity hires always, always think they are the best there is.

      • Nick Reynolds February 9, 2024 at 10:04 am #

        I think they call it DEI, but yours is better, and more accurate.

        • Yirgach February 9, 2024 at 4:49 pm #

          Oh, you mean Don’t Employ Idiots?

        • JimInFlorida2.0 February 10, 2024 at 11:03 am #

          DEI is a deliberate Jewish co-opt of the classical Latin word “Dei” meaning God.

          The Jewish god of chaos, Lucifer, is their DEI and they name the upending of Western Civilization with Affirmative Action on steroids.

          • Uncle Abraham February 11, 2024 at 1:29 am #

            What is your suggested remedy for this evil plot you have determined the no-good Jews are perpetrating?

          • JimInFlorida2.0 February 11, 2024 at 10:38 am #

            Well Abe,

            Remedies have been applied in the past. They were not only successful but, achieved the goals of restoring the people and nation.

            The methods are simply to either quell or get rid of the Jews. Quelling is not acceptable because the Jews are like a cancer simply put into remission. The threat remains.

            To get rid of them first requires a preliminary and extensive uncloaking of the Jewish mindset for all to see. Including their 3000 year agenda to enslave or destroy the Goyim. The methods of removal can range from the Romans’ destruction of that viper’s nest in 70 AD, to the Edict of Expulsion in 1290, to the Alhambra Decree and to the ALLEGED extermination of a few thousand in Nazi Germany.

            On the last one, Muh Six Million NEVER HAPPENED. That is a bald-faced lie that was IMPOSED upon the West and the Jewish media and power brokers enforce it to the uttermost. Indeed, Jews have a total hammerlock on the media and all other institutions that have the potential to hoist the Jews’ dirty laundry and bloodstained history up on a flagpole where all can see it.

            There can be no peace on the Earth with Jews. One of your spokesmen, Maurice Samuel said it quite clearly… and Whites are finally listening:

            [QUOTE] “We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever. Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands. We will for ever destroy because we need a world of our own, a God-world, which it is not in your nature to build.”

            Who is the god of the Jews? Lucifer and that is provable by their works, the chaos they create among the Goyim, and their own words. The god of Moses is brought out now and then to reassure the brainwashed Christtards who’ve drunk the Zionist Kool-Aid.

            Adolf Hitler (may Providence grant him rest and peace) was entirely too kind to you Jews. He initially wanted to round you all up and dump you in Madagascar. A far superior place to be than in the State of Israel. Plus, it is an island that can be 100% quarantined as one would do with a most deadly bio-weapon.

            The Final Solution was arrived at after centuries of bad experience with Jews and it seemed to be the only solution remaining. Take that as you will. I have an abundance of historical evidence and embarrassing quotes from rabbis and infamous secular Jews. It’s too bad that a tiny minority are actually very good people but, they are not enough to justify the evils of the rest. I am talking about Abraham and Lot, that story starting in Genesis 18:16.

            Yes, Abraham did negotiate with God to spare Sodom if just 10 righteous souls could be found. But, even God has his limits. You can be sure that Sodom and Gomorrah were packed full of the same Jews that plague the West today. BTW, LGBTQ…XYZ rights are key planks in the Jewish bridge to the Pax Judaica where the god they really worship, Lucifer (Harold Wallace Rosenthal said so), will visibly rule from Jerusalem.

            You thought you could just wave me off with a boilerplate Jewish diss. You weren’t expecting a comprehensive reply with undeniable evidence, did you?

      • Cankerpuss February 9, 2024 at 10:09 am #

        And why shouldn’t they when they are constantly told by business, government and media that they are the best there is. Like I have said before the white heterosexual male has all but disappeared from society, if you were watching television, that is.

        Saw an ad the other day talking about the increased amounts of hatred against Jews. The ad mentioned that there was too much hate against Jews, Blacks, Mexicans, Women, Gays, Asians, Indians. Guess which ethnic group was missing? Yeah, Whites.

        These people think they are the best because they are told they are the best.

        • Beryl of Oyl February 9, 2024 at 10:34 am #

          I’ve been seeing an ad on X, there’s a law firm (a legitimate one) looking for cases of discrimination against white men.

          I called it to the attention of someone in my family who has a friend trying to get hired for a teaching job for which he is more than qualified, and she forwarded it to him.

          He says he may look into it.

          I will report back if that happens.

        • TruthSeeker1986 February 9, 2024 at 11:04 am #

          @Cankerpuss

          They are full of shit, because for one thing Jews hate whites, that’s why they are wrecking all their nations. And Blacks hate Asians, that’s why they beat and kick their asses at will and they do the same to white people the very people that glorify and worship the ground they walk on. The Media is manipulative as hell…They simply mention all those groups because they are the people they rely on to take advantage of.

          Cankerpuss — It seems you have failed to notice that most Jews are white people. Your statement is idiotic and scurrilous. I’m giving you three demerits. — JHK-Admin

          • Uncle Abraham February 11, 2024 at 1:32 am #

            Aren’t the demerits meant for TS?

        • C.O.Jones February 9, 2024 at 11:28 am #

          Cankerpuss – I have had 2 different Indian friends tell me that part of the training in the “boot camps” set up in India by Bill Gates and company includes 2 weeks of intensive IT training – 3 weeks for a “master’s” – and the repeated drilling that white people are stupid and lazy and it is your job to go to the US and become their boss. If you fail to become the boss, you are disgracing your family and your national identity.

          I was incredulous when I was first told this but it is a reality I am living every work day.

          • Beryl of Oyl February 9, 2024 at 1:17 pm #

            I can’t address that, CO, but I have been learning from Indian individuals the pressure placed on them by their parents and their culture, that they are to be “exceptional” and that everyone must see it.

            When you look at Nikki Haley and Vivek, you can see examples of what I am talking about.

            The ambition came first, and then they decided how to fulfill that ambition.

            Nikki has said that she was influenced by Hillary Clinton and decided that’s how she wanted to be.

            No one in their right mind wants to be like Hillary, what Nikki was saying is that she saw a woman aiming at achieving what no woman had yet achieved, ambition-wise.

            Vivek got into politics because of seeing the presidency as a lofty goal to set his sights on.

          • Cankerpuss February 9, 2024 at 1:32 pm #

            Aren’t Indian people just dark skinned caucasoids?

          • Beryl of Oyl February 9, 2024 at 3:46 pm #

            Yes Indians are caucasoids; or I should say that’s what The Science said before this century.

            What they teach in courses like anthropology today bears no resemblance to what we were told.

            How can “Asian” be a race, any more that “North American”?

          • ThorsHammer February 10, 2024 at 2:02 pm #

            The window of opportunity is closing fast in the Ukraine. It has only about 90 days to re-build the Ukrainian Fourth Army to replace the first three sent to the meat grinder. Ukraine’s only hope is that the US institutes an immediate draft of all offspring of current US Presidential aspirants, Congresswhores, and registered Lobbyists. No training required. Nationalize the entire Carnival Lines flotilla to deliver them STAT.

            Zelensky has just appointed Gen. Oleksandr Syrskyi AKA (“The Butcher”) as head of the armed forces, so I’m sure he will find a suitable place for them.

            The problem most on the minds of North Americans is the fear that the six million refugees who have streamed across OBiden’s open border (voting card in hand) will use their pass stipend to move in next door. If OBiden would just mobilize the National Guard, round up all military age “migrants” in that invasion and ship them over to Ukraine to use as human waves, the US wouldn’t have to authorize any more 155mm artillery shells that it has already run out of.

          • C.O.Jones February 10, 2024 at 5:54 pm #

            I’ve always been mystified as to how people from a different country can be considered as being a different race. I also maintain the position that there is one human race and many tribes while fully realizing that belief places me squarely in a tiny minority. Look closely – this is me not caring about that.

            Convincing one tribe that another tribe is a different race has enabled and facilitated the cries of RACISM that have permeated the cultures of planet earth.

            I was told in a workplace setting by a person named Raja that white people, Jews in particular, were a slave race and he pointed out in the same sentence that Raja meant “king” as if me being white made him my overlord.

            That conversation came about as a result of me pointing out the many defects in code he had submitted. The quality of his code was terrible and, if introduced to the existing system, it would have broken the system in numerous places. It was my job to test the code to prevent such defects from making it into the existing system. “No pissing in the pool, please.”

            In today’s workplace, finding defects in code is RACIST.

            Raja later told me he didn’t care if his code broke every other piece of code in the system – the people who wrote the system code would have to change to accommodate his (garbage) code, the implication being that if they didn’t, they were racist.

            Check, please!

      “….sending billions of dollars there, some of it surely embezzled among the Zelensky government….”

      That’s an understatement!

      And where the US government doesn’t send cash, as in weapons, the money is spent at US defense contractors (part of the “blob”), and some of the weapons sent to the Ukraine are “skimmed” and sold on the black market.

      If/when things really start to unravel in the US or Europe, my concern is some of these shoulder-fired rockets might be used on commercial aircraft…

      I’ve seen the first third of Putin’s interview. Mr. Putin speaks well, carefully, and intelligently. The very antithesis of most US major Presidential candidates in my lifetime (let alone the mentally handicapped current President)

      • Beryl of Oyl February 9, 2024 at 10:02 am #

        IIRC, some of Congress fought the oversight and accounting of where the money and “stuff” we were sending to a known crime syndicate of a country was going.

        That tells me that a lot of what we were allegedly sending never left
        this country.

        Joe was no longer capable of demanding his slice, so who did it go to?

        Donald Trump was actually capable of speaking intelligently on foreign policy issues, but whenever he did, our media reported that he had said things he never said.

            I’ve read that one reason why the population of the Soviet Union was able to resist the crude propaganda that they were continually subjected to is that they were readers. In the era before universal television that was pivotal.

            Thor, thank you for book recommendation.

            The Soviets were readers–good point, I hadn’t thought about it.

            Less TV.

            Plus (Dmitry Orlov said/wrote this, but it makes sense), most Russians KNEW what the papers and TV said was propaganda and not entirely true, and not to be depended on.

            Americans used to be more likely to believe the media and government.

            I think this is less today, and the internet has hastened this trend.

            Still, millions of Americans still bought the official COVID narrative it its entirety, took the shots. and many still cannot make the connection between mRNA shots and their new health issues….

        • cbeard February 9, 2024 at 2:32 pm #

          Putin was very impressive. Especially in comparison to his American counterparts. I watched a little over half of the broadcast last night and had to get to bed. I’ll watch the rest tonight. Also, the revelation (to some, how could anyone ever think he had a full deck) that Biden is/has always been totally incompetent and dishonest, should be enough to keep him from being able to pardon his son, extended family and others for their illegal shenanigans. The first thing Trump should do upon getting into office is pardon all of the January 6th political prisoners.

        There was a flurry of concern when Uncle vamoosed from Afghanistan – oh, no remember that no more, no? – that the scores of shoulder-mounted Stingers left behind could be used by the bearded pranksters to knock down airliners.

        In the event, air travelers had a narrow escape: it turns out the batteries used to power the missile-launchers are not your ordinary Duracells available at the corner mom’n’pop shop. I presume the authorities clamped down on the sale and export of said batteries the same as they do for those highly-accurate switches used to set off a nuclear reaction.

          Did anybody notice the hypersonic missile being displayed in pubic and blessed by the Mullahs in Iran a few months ago? They must have cracked the problem of creating a plasma shield as employed by the Russians. Why is it that the US attempts at hypersonic flight in atmosphere all burn up at well under 5,000 mph?

      • Jarek February 9, 2024 at 12:47 pm #

        I’ve watched about the first half. Yes, a most impressive man. He makes it clear that he will never leave Western Ukraine alone however. It must always just be a “border land”. Whites have no right to anything of their own, certainly not nations.

        The Bandaristas did themselves no favors by provoking the Russian bear. Evidently they can’t help themselves. In their National Socialism, Russians not Jews are the devils. So they made a deal with the Internationalists to drive the Russians out – as if those against all nations would then let them have their own. Oh the precious fools.

      • jgalt February 9, 2024 at 1:49 pm #

        I watched the entire interview and was impressed with Putin’s command of history and his memory. Naturally, he will be attacked even more viciously, along with Tucker, by the leftist Demoncraps, who cannot, and will not, abide the truth about the breech of the Minsk agreements by expanding NATO and inviting Ukraine to join while building up their military to fight Russia. With the nazi Azov Battalions attacking Russian speaking areas in Eastern Ukraine after the 2014 Maidan coup planned and paid for by the U.S., and Russia’s protests and pleas falling on deaf ears, Russia was forced to act. Interesting how Russia’s attempt to join NATO was rudely rejected, as was a negotiated peace agreement early on in the war, that NATO, UK and US, objected to, as they preferred to fight to the last Ukrainian. Everyone should be concerned about a senile Biden having the nuclear football under his control, as he is a spiteful and hateful President, even if totally incapable.

          Spiteful, hateful Joe must suspect that he’s gonna get the boot, since Hur’s report was made public. (the Blob usually buries oppositional info).

      Well, only 8 months until the election, so the Dems need to do something fast. My money is on Gov Newsom, who recently announced “Californians are the happiest, most satisfied people in the US”, and “I’m proud of San Francisco, it diversity, its tolerance, it dynamism.”

      And don’t worry about Ukraine. Sec. Victoria Nuland visited Kiev earlier in the week, reassuring Zelensky “We’ve got your back, keep fighting”, and the $65 billion held up in Congress is forthcoming. Meanwhile, Ukraine has a new commanding General, and a new Spting Offensive is being planned that will dislodge Russia from Crimea & roll up the Russian Army back to Moscow.

      • Suzie February 9, 2024 at 11:01 am #

        Victoria Nulamd was in Kiev?
        That is a very, very bad sign.

        • Socrates-Detroit February 9, 2024 at 12:46 pm #

          She was in Turkey Jan 30/31. Lots of “smiles” now that Turkey approved Sweden’s accession into NATO, and now that the Biden Administration is pushing Congress to approve the sale of 40 F-6s to Turkey, and 79 F-16 upgrade kits.

          Nuland even said “if we can work thru the Russian SS400 (that Turkey bought, which led the US to expel Turkey from the F-35) we can give/sell F-35s to Turkey”

          Then early this week, Turkish drone make Baykar announced it would build a plant near Kiev, employing 500, to make drones.

          After that, the Russians said “the plant will be destroyed before it ever makes a single Russian-killing drone”, and Mr. Putin cancelled his Feb 12 trip to Turkey.

          So, the Turks are playing both sides right, because each side is concerned that if Turkey goes “more” to the other side, it will be a bigger problem. Therefore, each side (US and Russia) tolerates many “irritants”, as the lesser of the evils.

          Both sides, of course, would want the Turkish government on THEIR side. Today Turkey is a large (20% larger than Texas) expanse from Europe to Iran, from the Black Sea (which borders Russia’s southern shores) to Syria.

          The Turks are playing both sides because they want to recreate the Ottoman Empire, by expanding south (into Syria, which they illegally occupy a good part of), and Greece (they also illegally occupy Cyprus, and are constantly disputing the the status of the Greek islands and Aegean Sea).

          And the Turks are playing both sides pretty well. However, Ankara’s tirades against Israel (and just to be clear, I do agree with the Turkish position on the on-going genocide in Gaza) was not very well thought out. Turkey is barking loudly, but has no real bite when it comes to Israel.

          The same powers in the blob that are ensuring Israel can methodically go about its business of removing the Palestinians will scheme against Erdogan.

          And I think this little “wrinkle” with Israel, in some way, will precipitate a chain of events which will break up Turkey.

          The break-up of Turkey is not necessarily ideal for either the US or Russia.

          BUT, the powerful do not like uncertainty. They don’t like Erdogan/Turkey playing them.

          Setting aside the morons at the top of the US, the US establishment (which guides them) and the professional bureaucrats in DoD and State, their pre-eminent interest is to keep Russia OUT of the Med. They will not allow Turkey to let the Russians have access.

          The Russians preeminent interest is ACCESS to their most loyal ally, Syria. Turkey blocks that.

          So, something will happen, the Turks may go to far, and when all is said and done, the Western Crescent (which coincidentally was the CORE of the Eastern Roman, or Byzantine Empire, which over time became Hellenized (Greek replace Latin)) will wind up in Western (US) hands or control.

          As with Britain in the 19th Century, it will be KEEP RUSSIA OUT of the Mediterranean.

          KURDISTAN will become independent, and Russia will be the midwife, it will be Russia’s puppet. Armenia will get enlarged–also Russian. And now Russia has access to Syria.

          What’s left, the high desert of central Turkey–that will be the new Turkey.

          Just my wild hunch….. for your consideration or amusement.

          And yes, where Nuland goes, bad things follow

            you’ve been paying attention.

            i might take issue though with a couple of points.

            turkey cast its lot with azerbaijan in the recent second nagorno karabakh war, while expected russian support for armenia never materialized. while this is not a permanent state of affairs, it does illustrate that turkey, for the sake of expanding local and regional influence, will toe right up to the line in opposing russia, in a very calculating way. i do not see russia levering a free kurdistan unless a larger movement by russia in opposition to turkey evolves to the fore.

            second, turkey, with respect to israhell / gaza, is barking again for regional positioning. every time an islamic power takes on a wider issue, the muslim world asks itself “next caliphate?”, and turkey has several times in the past played pussyfoot with that islamic wish, balancing that national force against its own secularists. so, concluding, if gaza evolves into anything wider, turkey wants to minimally risk itself, but still position itself as the vanguard against israhell, still a universally agreeable position in the muslim world.

          • Socrates-Detroit February 9, 2024 at 7:10 pm #

            I believe “we” will get Constantinople back.

            The Greeks will get it–not because THEY will dislodge the Turks, no I don’t see that happening. The (Anglo-)AMERICANS will give it to them, to keep it out of Russia’s hands.

            Perhaps they will strike some kind of deal with the Russians.

            Churchill and Stalin struck a deal, which Churchill summarized on the back of a napkin, in Moscow in 1944. As part of the deal, Greece was “90/10”–90% British/10% other influence.

            cassidyglobalcoldwar.weebly.com/percentage-deal.html

            Perhaps (I hope!!!) this new Greek (“Byzantine Empire II”?) entity will manage to be neutral, like Tito, and it will serve both the US and Russia’s interests to NOT try to take it over, and let it be. lest it join the “other”.

            Some big differences between Tito (of Yugoslavia, 1945-80) and Erdogan (Turkey, 2003-current) is that Tito was NOT an irredentist seeking other nations’ lands; he did not as blatantly play the USSR against the US; his “neutrality” suited both sides, and his location was not as vital to both sides.

            The US wants to keep Russia out of the Med–if Turkey allied with Russia, Russia is IN.

            Russia wants direct access to client/ally Syria. Today “Turkey” is in way–but if Kurdistan became independent, and Armenia gets a little bigger, Armenia-(Turk) Kurdistan-Syria axis. See what I mean…

            The plight of the Palestinians may inadvertently help the stateless Kurds. The Kurds are the world’s largest stateless people.

            Erdogan’s comments about Israel (did anyone else notice how they have abated since Biden said the US would sell Turkey 40 F-16s and 79 F-16 upgrade kits… it’s not just in Western media, I occasionally follow Hurriyet.tr, a newspaper that supports Erdogan, and their coverage of Gaza and the West Bank has plummeted…) might also play a part down the road.

            St. Paissios, a Greek Orthodox monk, predicted the above (St Sophia a church again, Constantinople “given” to Greece by the “Anglo-Americans”)

            Before Feb 2022 and the Russian liberation of Ukraine, I could not see a “path” to the fulfillment of Paissios’ prophecies.

            In the aftermath of Feb 2022, subsequent events, such as the trade sanctions, the new Cold War, the interactions between the US, Russia, Europe, Turkey, and Greece, I now see a “path forward” to the fulfillment of Paissios’ prophecies. Probably during my lifetime (based on my actuarial life expectancy), given the state of the world today.

            St Paissios said “Russia will attack Turkey”, implying a double-cross of some sort.

            Then, many (but not ALL) Western (probably France and some other select Europeans, perhaps the US) will say “we should go get some too” and attack Turkey.

            Paissios is said to have written that the war in/over Turkey will be very destructive to all the nations involved.

            When it’s over, Turkey will be broken up. Armenia will get enlarged with Trebizon (Trapezounta) which had many Christians until 1922; Kurdistan will become independent; and the coastal region will be separate from the high desert middle of the country (which is the poorest). The middle high desert will be the “new Turkey”. Check out the Sykes-Picot plan (google it) and see how close it is to what Paissios described. Sykes-Picot was the secret deal between Britain/France/Italy to divide up the “core” of Turkey after WW1.

            Look at a Turkish election map from May 2023. You’ll see it’s a divided country–the “coast” went for Erdogan’s opponent–he trounced Erdo in the more affluent areas–63% in Izmir. The middle provinces (the poor parts)–Erdo got 70%. The Southeast is Kurdish. It’s a divided country in some ways…

            “Greece is not going to join the attack”, though it will ultimately “benefit” from events. It will be a difficult time however, and Greece will suffer from famine. Paissios says people need to “act while they can, to go back to their villages (their ancestral towns), and set up their gardens for vegetables, and few chickens and goats for eggs, milk, and meat, because you will need it to survive those 6 months or so”

            Kind of rhymes with US preppers… Except older Greeks, those who were adults or teens and lived thru 1941-48 in Greece lived in real “Long Emergency” in which survival was directly correlated to being able to produce food to eat, many Greeks today still remember their parents or grandparents’ stories about this era.

            St. Paissios said that the signs that those days are near would be “Examila” and the “passing of the current generation of Turkish leaders”

            The “current generation of Turkish leaders” of his life was the Turkish “Deep State” that ruled via the military, or pulled the strings, from 1923 thru 200x.

            Now Erdogan IS the Turkish “Deep State”. IMO, he will rule as long as he is alive. He is 69. How much longer will he be healthy enough to run things?

            He has no anointed successor. If he left tomorrow, you will have a power struggle among the Islamists, with the old “deep state” trying to re-emerge. When Erdogan goes, I see a lot of instability on this very important piece of real estate…

            “Examila” could be the name of a place, a village. It’s also short for “exi milia”, or “six miles”. As in territorial waters. Turkey has been questioning Greece’s sovereignty in the Aegean, but also has conflicts with Cyprus, Israel, Egypt on sea rights.

            Two things to watch for–a flare-up over sea rights (and in the wake of the embargo on Russia, any oil or gas in the Aegean or Eastern Mediterranean is now a BIG deal) or the passing of Erdogan. Then some kind of dispute with the Russians.

            The Russian and the Turk are like cat and dog–their current “friendship” is an aberration and it won’t last.

            So in 2019, I didn’t see how Turkey gets broken up and Constantinople/Istanbul becomes Greek. Now I do.

            St. Paissios (1924-1994) was an Orthodox priest-monk. Those of you interested in him can google him, or find books about him online.

          • Socrates-Detroit February 9, 2024 at 7:26 pm #

            @justanotherguy

            Azerbaijan and Turkey are very close, politically and racially/ethnically.

            Erdogan calls the Azeris his brothers.

            Armenia is not only smaller than Azerbaijan, it does not have oil like Azerbaijan. And it is run by (seeming) idiots or traitors.

            The West can only get to Armenia via Turkey or Iran, but in their quest to undermine Russia, they make a lot of pro-Armenian noise. The current leader of Armenia, Pashinyan. looks West.

            Armenia is in a bad spot.

            Russia is playing Armenia. Kinda like the Godfather

            Frank Pantangelli “Michael, why do you make me lay down for the Risotto brothers?””

            Michael “Keep your friend close and your enemies closer. I want them to think we are good”.

            So, YOU need to suck it up. That’s Russia (Michael) and Armenia. Now. It’ll change.

            Not only does Turkey LOVE Azerbaijan, but so does Israel. Israel provided a lot of the weapons the Azeris use, as well as Turkey.

            Iran has been good to the Armenians–but again, if Pachinyan leans West too much, that irks Iran.

            Iran is good to Armenians not because the mullahs love Christians–but because the mullahs don’t like Azerbaijan being under Israel’s and even Turkey’s influence.

            It’s very confusing world…

        Yup I agree BRH.

        I think when the Dem National Convention comes around, there will be a dramatic, savage bait & switch between Biden & Newsom.

        Ole Slow Joe will be reminded who is “protecting” his family from danger, and be told to step aside, or else. They’ll trot him out, of course. He will speak less than 15 minutes (notice that’s the max time he is allowed to speak or is able to speak), and Biden will portray Newsom in glowing, messianic terms, like the kindly grandfather passing the torch down to his son.

        All of this will be couched in Orwellian terms like “for democracy” & “for democratic norms”.

      But they can arrange it so that Newsom (appears to) run things behind the scenes, a la Cheney.

      Of course the real string pullers will be managing Newsom.

      But Newsom may turn out to be a PITA and decide that he is really in charge. He may have enough political experience and backbench (Pelosi & Co.)—unlike the tyro, Trump—to figure out how to wield the power of the Executive Branch.

        There have been amazing strides forward in the science of mummification since the Incas. Why, I’ll bet that during his next four years as mummy/president Joe would even grow younger. After all, it worked on Osama bin Laden after his death from kidney failure in a US military hospital. Or maybe the CIA used body doubles to make his nose grow longer, his hair blacker, and his cheek bones change?

    I loathe the man but watching him fumble like the buffoon he is in front of the world as the figurehead running our ship of state makes me sad for the fate of this country.

    How do so many people think this is ok?

    At a minimum this is elder abuse.

    • Beryl of Oyl February 9, 2024 at 9:51 am #

      Yes. He can’t defend himself. Anybody who has ever dealt with this heartbreak in their own family knew exactly what they were seeing with Joe.

      A question that remained unanswered is just why Jill was going along with this? What was in it for her?

      Don’t anybody tell me she wanted power. She doesn’t have any power, and she can’t be enjoying what her life has become.

      She’d have been better of without Joe staying in office, so what is she covering for?

        I’ll offer he might have enough capacity to demand he go in front of the press as he did last evening. As noted, his mental capacity has been ‘covered up’ by the staff and a litany of others. Suddenly they stand up to him?

        I was waiting for an anger-infused meltdown, which would not be a first, particularly when he left the podium and then walked back to it.

        Does anyone think his handlers (about whom Mr. Putin declined to speculate ) put him out on center stage?

        If the answer is ‘yes’ we’re in a deeper latrine than many think possible.

    He seemed genuinely dismayed that the Russian people, having thrown the communists out of power, were not given their shot at joining the world order. Such an opportunity that was squandered by those who thought they could have it all.

    The overture to join Nato was a big surprise. I never heard that before, but in the telling I realized that had Russia joined Nato, the reason to have Nato would be moot.

    All that money, power and influence via Nato would have been moot too. That’s why they said no.

    America should keenly observe Russia’s sense of history, and obligation to it’s people.

      The United States blocked that Russian overture. You can probably guess why.

      1992, the USSR broke apart. One condition of the break apart was the USA and Europe helping Russia Through its economic problems at the time. One year later, we reneged on that deal.

      The whole issue is the USA not wanting to lose its European alliances to its “enemy”. The EU cannot accept Russia as a European nation, although it has always been. Remember on the Crown that Elizabeth made a big deal out of England’s recognition of Russia that her relatives the last Tsar and Tsarina were found and recognized. European through and through.

      I knew about the ‘Russia joining NATO’ discussion at the time.

      Good summary of the possible ramifications.

      We don’t seem to have the same grasp of history as shown by some in other cultures. Is this in part because history, civics and other topics are no longer taught in the US?

      In part it could also be shown by the actual lack of ‘history’ in the US. The land mass was greatly unexplored by Europeans, and the areas explored were not coordinated as they were ‘owned’ by a variety of colonial powers in competition.

    That’s what Ukraine wanted as well. Not the entire country, of course. The average patriotic Ukrainian.

    That’s even in that TV show Zelensky starred in. They used the word “normal” (not the English word, obviously).

    They wanted to become more like the rest of Europe.

    Thanks Jim.

    “This Friday morning, the USA is fraught with events unspooling. As I write, with dawn just breaking, there is almost zero opinion yet formed about these troubling matters on the vast Internet — but it will probably come in hot-and-heavy as the day ticks on. If Mr. Biden is truly mentally incompetent, as established more-or-less legally by Special Counsel Hur, then there is the obvious remedy of the 25th amendment — removal of a president for reason of disability. A debate over this would seem unavoidable now. The question also implies that Mr. Biden’s charade of running for reelection must come to an end. What will the Democratic party do about that?”

    Yes, I’ve been pondering these things, too. I think there has been a perfect political storm the last couple days. State Media doesn’t know exactly how to deal with all this. It’s like the Goebbel-esque machinery which the US State Media operates & depends is starting to malfunction badly. The Matrix is becoming smoky & static filled.
    For one example, on State Radio this morning, the segment I listened to was about Super Bowl Half Time bands (?) Apparently ignoring steep national decline is how the State will handle these serious problems.

    “In a case where the government must prove that Mr. Biden knew he had possession of the classified Afghanistan documents after the vice presidency and chose to keep those documents, knowing he was violating the law, we expect that at trial, his attorneys would emphasize these limitations in his recall.
    We also expect many jurors to be struck by the place where the Afghanistan documents were ultimately found in Mr. Biden’s Delaware home: in a badly damaged box in the garage, near a collapsed dog crate, a dog bed, a Zappos box, an empty
    bucket, a broken lamp wrapped with duct tape, potting soil, and synthetic firewood. A reasonable juror could conclude that this is not where a person intentionally stores what he supposedly considers to be important classified documents, critical to his legacy. Rather, it looks more like a place a person stores classified documents he
    has forgotten about or is unaware of. We have considered- and investigated-the possibility that the box was intentionally placed in the garage to make it appear to be there by mistake, but the evidence does not support that conclusion.”

    –From pgs. 208-9 of the Biden classified Doc. report

    The investigators in this case cite repeatedly that mentally incompetency would ‘most likely’ preclude Biden from conviction, because a jury would see him as so mentally unfit that his actions wouldn’t constitute as “willful”.

    • pranah February 9, 2024 at 11:01 am #

      Where, and the conditions in which, those documents were found is just how I’ve read one is advised to disguise important items you don’t want found in case of burglary. And who, exactly, put the documents there? Joe? Jill? What does =she= know, I wonder?

    It was refreshing to see Tucker complete the assignment and interview Putin, though it was clear throughout that even the cream of US journalistic popularity pales in comparison to the long game and sheer powers of focused intellect that Putin brings to bear. How many times did Tucker impatiently interrupt Putin’s answer to his question with an ADHD tangent question, only to be mildly rebuked by Putin, then have Putin calmly continue answering for a few more minutes, before seamlessly moving on to the interjected question.

    Jim, you nailed it when you expressed concern that the American public couldn’t follow Putin’s 25-minute contextual introduction. Tucker couldn’t see the relevance, and he’s the cream of the US crop with 4 million daily viewers.

    Tucker, who should be applauded for his attempts at independence and balanced reporting, was made to seem a cackling fidgeting mental lightweight. Some of his questions were just to keep himself relevant.

    Putin’s hemisphere analogy was masterful, but Tucker failed to follow it up with a question about what should US citizens do about it. If the Roman empire took 500 years to collapse and the US empire is collapsing much faster than that (as Putin explicitly stated), what should concerned and thinking Americans DO? Given that we Westerners are so pragmatic.

    A useful interview. Let’s hope the US Federal Supreme Court reverses the Chevron Deference this year, opening the way for concerned and thinking Americans to do something about deflating that blob.

    • Nathan February 9, 2024 at 10:14 am #

      Also, I wanted Tucker to ask some questions relating to the length of Putin’s leadership, where Putin’s answer could describe eldership governance by the competent, with democratic veto powers when elders cease being competent. Clearly, as demonstrated during the 2 hours, Putin’s Statehood, clarity of thought, grasp of historical and current world events (he quoted the US current GDP figures offhand, can anyone in Washington these days do that?) is the best argument in favour of his continuing fitness to lead. Hyper-polarised and constantly propagandised Americans cannot comprehend that democracy can flourish in forms other than the US model. Generational eldership is the governance model used in the smallest social construct possible (the nuclear family consisting of one man, one woman and their children), so why wouldn’t it work when scaled up? Of course it works. When the adult children decide amongst themselves that Dad needs help showering and going to the toilet, then that Mum and Dad need assisted living, and they elect a sibling as power of attorney, that is democracy in action. The governance moves to the next generation.

        • Nathan February 9, 2024 at 10:31 am #

          I’ll paraphrase, because I don’t have a transcript handy. Tucker asked what Putin thought about power shifting in the world, dividing into two hemispheres (e.g. West and BRICS). Putin paused for around 5 seconds, then launched into an analogy of the human brain being split into two hemispheres. Each controls differering but important functions. But it is still one head, and there need not be conflict between the two hemispheres. Just as there need not be on our one globe. Adapt peacefully and gradually is his hope for those in the half undergoing lobotomy.

        Also, I think I saw an earpiece on P, away from the camera, so some of that mastery may have used prompts.

        Not to denigrate the man, nonetheless…

        • Nathan February 9, 2024 at 10:32 am #

          That earpiece was feeding Putin a Russian translation.

          • anmariwakaranai February 9, 2024 at 10:39 am #

            Good point!

          • Nathan February 9, 2024 at 10:42 am #

            It increases the respect, given Putin was working from a translation, and that his responses were phrased clearly enough for the Russian translator to provide a more eloquent and larger vocabulary of English in his translations than Tucker himself ordinarily uses.

          • kidseyedoc February 9, 2024 at 11:16 am #

            KUDOS TO THE TRANSLATOR

            The translator for Putin translated flawlessly, seamlessly and simultaneously, with detailed, finely crafted syntax rendered in exquisitely perfect American English. Better American English than most of us speak.

            The translator had to have lived for many years in the United States. He undoubtedly has a most remarkable backstory.

      Yes, Tucker has a brand to sell, and he let that affect his work. His work is still head and shoulders above what the legacy media reporters produce, but he can certainly do better.

      We aren’t stupid, or we wouldn’t be watching in the first place.

      Tucker didn’t need to try to dumb it down and make it more like what the other “journalists” would have done.

      • Nathan February 9, 2024 at 10:34 am #

        Exactly. Perhaps Tucker is cognisant of his audience’s ability to digest the content, so was trying to break it down into American sized segments.

        • JohnAZ February 9, 2024 at 10:47 am #

            In Jerry Mander’s book, 4 Arguments Against Television (sic) he refers to the cuts in television as “technicals”. These cuts stimulate the brain and keep it focused on the propaganda being shown. The optimum is around 30 seconds long.

          • RD3 February 9, 2024 at 11:25 am #

            I think that Marshall McLuhan spoke about that, as well.

            Is his name actually “Jerry Mander?” Cruel parents. Though, as time goes on and people regress mentally, I’m sure few even know what “Gerrymandering” is.

          • oldandtired February 9, 2024 at 12:50 pm #

            @RD3. Yes, his real name. Died last year. Of interest in the book was a quote from Bill Keane(sp) who was Captain Kangaroo on tv. Keane said that young children should be outside playing rather than watching tv.

          • RD3 February 9, 2024 at 12:54 pm #

            Well, it seems obvious, but they were certainly right about that. My children are far better behaved when they spend a lot of time outside. It was beautiful here last night, and I managed to get home from work in time to play football in the yard with my older boys. Of course, it ended in them fighting, but they are pretty competitive. I give the younger one a little more leeway in pushing and shoving, and it perturbs the older one.

      Good analysis, Nathan. I remember thinking, “please, Tucker, just let him finish,” then, when Putin later circled back to Tucker’s interjection, “wow, what a mind.”

    • Jarek February 9, 2024 at 1:35 pm #

      Perhaps this is why the CIA rejected him. It was pretty funny when Putin brought that up. On the other hand, his questions about why Putin didn’t press his claim to Ukraine from the first was right on target. As was his, Why not give Hungary back its part of Ukraine? Or hell, what about the German part of Poland?

    Sadly true. Some are trapped unaware. Some are starting to see the mirrors, but cannot allow themselves to admit the truth because…Trump. Some revel in the madness and just want it to continue.

    Regardless, the choice in front of us is very clear. Continue with the Globalist agenda of unreality or face reality and reject the bastards once and for all.

    Russia chose to finally stop the madness and reject the bastards. Putin encourages the West to learn from Russia’s tragic example and spare the world some pain. Will anyone listen?

      I’ll say it once again. Russia and Putin are way on board with the globalist agenda and their government is full of WEF functionaries. They push the clot shots, have digital ID’s, CBDC’s and jail just about anybody they don’t like, including bloggers.
      Ukraine is about who gets to eat which peasants, but for the globalist agenda both sides support it. Putin is no alternative for anything.

      One of my guilty pleasures is imagining how current news stories/headlines would be received by historical figures.

Never mind Chinese machinations, or Admiral Levine.

      Although he would not have been surprised that Trump got elected; Nixon really exhorted Trump to run, someday.

      As a kid, reading Heinlein’s “Crazy Years” headlines, as presented in Stranger in a Strange Land, I thought they were ridiculous. Porn Star Gives Birth While Skydiving; wife of world leader consults astrologer for her husband’s every move; senile SCOTUS justice wakes up during hearing and roars, “Divorce granted!”

      They don’t seem quite so preposterous, now.

    “That is, much of the whole US population is mentally unwell, living in a national hall of mirrors. How did that happen? Is it possible that there are branches of our government dedicated to driving the population crazy. . . a kind of ordeal-by-gaslight?”

    Excellent write up, Jim. I particularly enjoyed your comment quoted above. I have long believed the US government is only a bright reflection of the people it rules over. A righteous and a sane people would have long ago ridden itself of this broken and failed system.

    However, Americans are not a righteous nor a sane group of people. Television and movies, in my opinion, have devastated our society. Causing people to have false belief in lies and fakery over truth and honesty.

    Just walk through the store and you’ll see what America has become. People are typically obese. Dressed in their pajamas. Covered in Tatoos. Degeneracy abounds in all of its forms. Drug and alcohol use is out of control. Sexual perversion permeates society. Iliteracy, ignorance and intolerance are the norms now while time honored traditions of family and love are quashed. Women butcher and murder their own children and then have altars in their homes where they worship the remains of their children.

    How can we expect a people this lost to reclaim its government?

    It can’t, Jim. I think you understand this just as well as I do.

      More & more often I’m beginning to see men out in public dressed up like women. You notice the person, something seems off; it’s a dude in a dress! I think of the classic 1950s film ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’. Who has been duplicated, who is still human? Some of them are frightening, the stuff of nightmares. Face tatts add a special touch of horror … like one has unwittingly wandered into a carnival from hell where Side Show Freaks have escaped their bounds and are stalking the Midway, looking for victims.

    In 1971, President Nixon took the US off the gold standard. That was probably bad. But the same year, by a Congressional Reorganization Act, votes in Congress which had been secret, became public. That’s what we have now, and it’s the worst mistake the US has ever made, among quite a few. Public voting allows big donors to know how everyone in Congress votes. That has led to “donor capitalism,” or the best Congress money can buy. We should go back to secret ballots in Congress before it’s too late.

Didn’t Democrats use to be the party of the KKK at some point, now all of a sudden they act like negros are superior over white people in every way. And now they’ve recruit all the LGBTQ types and every other “oppressed” group that’s easy for them to manipulate forever.

            Growing up in the early 1990s television use to be so much cooler, now out of nowhere white people don’t exist on the networks….I’m honestly surprised they haven’t had every single movie with white people on them burnt and destroyed or that Hollywood still bothers to make films with white people in them when television itself is hell bent on making it seem like they don’t exist anymore.

          • RD3 February 9, 2024 at 1:07 pm #

            Well, historically, the Democrats had various factions, while the Republicans were the party of corporate plunder.

            In the 1950’s, Northern Democrats began to push Southern Democrats out of the party. I believe Strom Thurmond was the first significant Democrat to turn Republican. Then, over time, most of the Southern conservatives became Republicans. In the end, it was probably a bad move for Southerners. The South was as nation at the time, and no longer is.

            Joe Biden was friends with Klan Democrats. If they had retained power, he still would be. A man devoid of any principles whatsoever.

            In contrast, the rank and file are now Communist fanatics who hate whoever they are told to hate. That means Whites. Whites hating their own race? No problem, apparently. It’s a religion, and they are the elect, the saved. It’s led by Feminists of course.

          • Beryl of Oyl February 9, 2024 at 2:16 pm #

            The Democrats “hate whitey” because that’s what Obama the commie was brought in to do.

    Every generation thinks its experiences are unique, which is why the recurring manifestation of evil constantly surprises people who lament that it was “all for nothing”.

    Au contraire, it most certainly was for something, a rewarding exercise in the fulfillment of power. Humpty Dumpty explains:

    “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.”

    “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”

    “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that’s all.”

    Talk about letting the cat out of the bag.
    We all had an inkling this was going on when they had people commit crimes that were just released but to hear out plainly said from a Democrat politician is astounding.

    Mr Kunstler’s repetitive statements can be condensed into one phrase: The Emperor’s New Clothes. I find zero new revelations in todays post. There is no drama about Biden. The democrats are allowing and making sure the public knows he’s gone. Hunter made sure Harris will pardon him if the old man totally dements or croaks.

    Joe Biden may have dementia, which I think is a convenient act, after all, they selected the investigators for an investigation that suddenly popped up that no one was aware was being conducted. But, the head of homeland security, the CDC, the FBI and these other alphabet agencies appear to be in their right minds. Hunter Biden appears cognizant of his actions. They can care for a dementia patient in prison, they have fully equipped, fully staffed, health facilities in federal prisons. Not buying the he’s all of the sudden frail and weak, but the borders are still open, our economy is destroyed (on purpose) and let me guess, he has an occasional moment of lucidity so he can pardon all of these federal criminals from further prosecution. I know people who have been released from prison doing 20 for having a joint in their ashtary, but we supposed to let him and others off with no consequences for what they put this country through. This so called president didn’t just become corrupt, he’s been that way for a long time. Does anyone seriously think that if that was us in a somewhat similar situation, that they would let us slide?

        Good question. And the same goes for a president that has been fraudulently selected. I am not naive enough to think that cheating doesn’t happen in elections, but not on the scale of the last one. We have to start with an investigation of our modern voting system. We should REQUIRE an audit of the voting process in every state, I don’t care if it takes as long as until the next election. These boards or commissions overseeing these elections have one job and 2-4 years to get ready for ONE job and they can’t seem to get it done. The people of those states should demand it, and get rid of the dysfunctional members on those boards. It shouldn’t take 2 weeks to count votes, thats bullshit.

    You would think that a discussion of Biden’s mental capacity cannot be avoided, but it seems that it can, and has been for the last 4 years.

    During the first impeachment of Trump in 2019, they managed to display great indignation that he held up weapons to Ukraine without once mentioning why it was so important to get those weapons to Ukraine (the Kiev regime), and what the Kiev regime was doing with them (killing the citizens of eastern Ukraine).

    They also based the impeachment on the assertion that Biden was the “front runner” and any question of legal improprieties of a opposing candidate was an outrageous violation of democracy. Is that discussed today?

    I thought at the time that them pretending that that senile old pervert was the “front runner” was absurd beyond belief.

    I never imagined that they would put him into the White House and leave him there. Nor did I imagine that the Mighty Wurlitzer would tell us that “everyone” was relieved that now there was an actual adult in charge. Nor did I imagine that those shameless criminals would then use lawfare against the actual front runner of the next election.

    But here we are.

    Interestingly enough, my husband reports that NPR didn’t mention the Putin interview at all, but they did report on Biden’s dementia.

    I would have thought it would be the opposite. Is this going to be the plan? Cover up the interest in the interview by stirring up debate about Biden’s mental capacity?

    Note: Please do not comment simply to point out that you don’t like NPR. I know this and I don’t care.
    They are a flagship of narrative control, and that is why their spin is interesting, which is why I am reporting on it.

    What we saw from Biden was the (D) party beginning the public show of finally allowing Bidens mental decline to be openly discussed. This will allow for Biden to resign and the unelectable Harris to step in.

    She gets to check off a bunch of diversity boxes and play President the rest of the year. Since she is unelectable pardoning all Biden family crooks wont hurt her nonexistent campaign.

    More importantly, whomever she’s told to pick for VP will be the next POTUS.

    We’ll probably be gathering our thoughts about the interview for the next year. My personal immediate observations signal that there are more questions than answers. I think for anyone who has been halfway following current events for the past several years there were no new significant revelations. This makes me think that the interview was intended to be a comm. Not to Western publics but to the dark inner circles within the West. That being said I do think it was significant that Putin telegraphed to the American public that Western elites have made a decision to collapse the United States like the Russian elites decided to collapse the Soviet Union in the 1990s. So the controlled demolition meme is very real.

    I get the sense that Putin was letting the Western elites know that a new monetary system is being determined and will be established without Western input. It appears that the BRICS powers will be the determinants of the new currency or system of currencies that eventually replace the US dollar. He was also clear that he understands exactly who is doing what within the US. He knows the centers of decision but only made it clear in the immediate moment that it was not Biden or anyone who is elected. Western governments are basically just ” ” and are actually nothing more than intel psyop operations is what I gathered but perhaps it is even more elaborate?

    The interview imo was not organic but was part of the movie. Another chapter in the unraveling revelation. Note that Tucker never mentioned the biolabs or organ harvesting ops in Ukraine. One step at a time perhaps. The body language was well choreographed and was intended to show that the workers of light are in control. Putin was wearing a purple tie. To me this was an indication that he is representing and speaking for the actual center of power. He also did not appear to be the same man as those who were shown in the pictures that Tucker placed at various points throughout the interview. I won’t go there at this particular point. Tucker was wearing a gold and midnight blue stripped tie. To me this indicates that dark mysteries will be illuminated. The light is being shined into dark corners.

      Oddly enough, they say that the color of the revolution being attempted in the U.S. is purple. Since I heard that, I’ve been attuned to its appearance here and there. Most especially the overhead lighting when public figures speak. Or the Clintons’ matching apparel the day Hillary conceded. Purple stage lighting has been “a thing” for the past decade.

      • SoftStarLight February 9, 2024 at 1:43 pm #

            When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
            With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
            And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
            And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
            I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired
            And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
            And run my stick along the public railings
            And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
            I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
            And pick flowers in other people’s gardens
            And learn to spit.

            You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
            And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
            Or only bread and pickle for a week
            And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

            But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
            And pay our rent and not swear in the street
            And set a good example for the children.
            We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

            But maybe I ought to practise a little now?
            So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
            When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

          I talked about the Purple Revolution years ago.

          It is the revolution the globalists planned for the US. Those involved often wear purple in public speaking appearances (ties, pantsuits, etc.).

          I mentioned way back how my old company had an event centered around it. We had a WEF-backed speaker tell us we were the shapers of the future. The stage was lit in purple, we were served purple-colored champagne, etc.

          The color revolutions of the past few decades have all been backed by the same groups.

      Or perhaps you are right. There is the picture of him as WW1 soldier. Perhaps he’s just pretending to get older or using a body double. He may be a Highlander.

        Yeah, I am never sure of these things of course, but it did seem a little strange. For example in one of the pictures it almost appeared like an earlier Putin was older than current Putin. Like he had more wrinkles and all. Now of course that could be cosmetic surgery and that is likely the easiest and maybe most real explanation. But questions kinda linger just because of the strangeness of it.

      He might not be as easy to get rid of as some people think.

      However, a bunch of groups and individuals want to keep the gravy train running and he’s an easy way. A few more coins into the laundromats to maintain the show.

      People say ’25th Amendment” however it’s not so easy to use as one might expect.

      Short of his exit via Section 1, section 4 is a tough way to go.

    “There was Mr. Putin of the land called Russia, calmly discoursing in fine detail on a thousand years of his country’s history. And there was Mr. Biden of the USA… angrily refuting a special prosecutor’s glum conclusion that the President was not mentally competent…”

    The Resident is living proof that the person who currently occupies the White House runs nothing in ‘The Indispensable Nation!’. A figurehead that does not currently have much of a figure nor most certainly (much left inside) a head.

    Most of us have had the sad occasion to watch an elderly person stumble their way out of a rest room while trailing toilet paper hanging like a tail from the back of their worn clothing. A silly and sad sight that they are clueless to their obvious appearance as they are sadly struggling like hell to function.

    Does that picture remind you of anyone today, hmmm? Someone that everyone around them can plainly see is having a terrible time even doing simple things while still angrily and with little grasp of reality insisting that they are ‘FINE!’?

    There are Adults in the Room. There are Children in the Room. And then there are Adults who are acting like Children. Or of a child’s mind.

    Again, does that remind you of anyone today… hmmm?

    While America and other parts of the World will be consumed by the nonsensical mind-warping, soul-perverting psy-op called the ‘Soo— Per– Bowl!’… the Planet will be continuing its descent into madness and disorder and peril. And while countless millions of people will be consumed with all things Swift and Usher and Kelce-Wellsie… serious leaders around the World will be thinking about how best to deal with an Empire in its death throes. And a wounded animal is always a dangerous one.

    And so is any Nation without competent or benevolent leadership. You can only stretch things so far with lies and puffery and thuggery and conjured money out of thin air. Sooner or later, the Devil is coming around to collect his due. And usually he is not satisfied until you surrender your soul. Which is something that very many in today’s ‘Indispensable Nation’ have already happily surrendered to the Smiling Red Guy With Tail.

    So while you are placing bets on the Mind-Effing Fiasco in the Nevada Desert… or on whether or not ‘He’ is going to pop the question (!) to ‘Her’ in a Taylor-made media setting… you might give a thought to whether or not we will still exist on this Planet in twelve months when The Next Great Psy-Op will be held.

    Maybe in the land of 500-million Americans left? If so, the Globalists will be partying like there’s no tomorrow. Because for many of us… there won’t be.

        How could much of America care about the country when they don’t even care about themselves?

        Look at we Americans today. How we dress. What we eat and drink. What we allow to be done to our children. How we think (or not). What we let happen to our freedoms and our way of life. And… what countless tens of millions of Americans will be willingly doing this Sunday night with their time and eyeballs. Eating and drinking stuff that is bad for you and being propagandized by social manipulators and mind-warping and soul-sapping commercials and a ‘Half-Time Show’ that every year is written by the Devil himself.

        We ‘vote’ about things by what we choose to care about and do with our time and thoughts and energy. Sunday Night will prove once again what America really cares about… and what it doesn’t. A Super Hole. A Super… Shame.

          @Roundball Shaman

          You are right but the problem is America wasn’t always like this…The country got heavily engineered, and it is fear that keeps people from taking action. If someone walked up to someone’s kid and slapped them in the mouth or tried to abduct them with the parent standing there, do you think the parent will just allow it to happen? Most likely no unless the person aims a loaded gun at them putting them in a position as to where one move will lead to their kid getting shot, or both the parent and the child getting shot. Such a situation would be difficult for a parent to comprehend how to deal with because real life isn’t the movies.

          One would have to why are they allowing teachers to mind fuck their kids and do nothing about it even without aiming a gun at them? Because the FBI will come after the parent and label them a terrorist for trying to protect their own children.

          People have given up due to fear of consequences so they just rather surrender and not even care. A lot of people are just “coping” at this point, coping is a form of not caring or ignoring reality. Look how leftist white people were acting in 2020…Down on their knees apologizing for being white and slavery, washing the feet of blacks, now they offer up their wives to be sexed by them in front of them while they dehumanize themselves to the entire belief of being an inferior human being to the woman cucking him while another man emasculates him in front of his garbage wife.

          It’s a disgraceful nation full of disgraceful degenerate losers that openly embrace it like it’s some kind of badge of honor. Japan gave up on themselves too, I’m seeing a lot of countries where a vast majority of it’s own people have given up on fighting or remember what their ancestors were like during invasions, and so fourth.

          And that’s because when you have a mentally sick society. That just makes it easier to rule over their lives. Mentally sick people can’t fight, and now they are importing more worthless people into the country. Ones who can’t really speak any goddamn English, don’t know shit about the laws, culture, or constitutions, etc. Add these invading parasites on top of the loser degenerates and you have a double society to lord over that can’t fight or have no desire to do so with a high tolerance for humiliation, abuse, and mind rape.

          • Suburban_elk February 10, 2024 at 7:41 am #

            America stopped caring about itself when it stopped caring about its kids, and let 120 MILLION of them have their genitals cut out and thrown into the trash, with the dirty shit rags and bloody towels and w/o so much the courtesy of a biowaste disposal protocol. [1] Blame the medical establishment, mostly, or Abrahamic religion(s), or the human condition, but a society that doesn’t protect its children when they are vulnerable, has no grounds for life, and deserves put down. Russia laughs at us, for submitting to this ritual which is a slave marker.

            1. Back in the 70s, before they were sold to Big Med and Big Cosmetic, that’s what was done, with the baby body parts: they were thrown into trash w/o so much the courtesy of a biowaste disposal protocol.

            This is the reason why American Men are confused about what is their purpose and identity. That it’s not even allowed on the table of discussion, is part and parcel of the total own.

          • Roundball Shaman February 10, 2024 at 12:58 pm #

            TruthSeeker1986: “… it is fear that keeps people from taking action.”

            Fear is the Dark State’s control mechanism. But people are fearful because they think they are alone. But We the People always outnumber the Dark Siders. And it is always collective efforts that hold back the tide of their dark agendas. As individuals we are in fact alone. But as a collective… that is power in action.

            People will collectively party or go to a football game. And watch tomorrow’s big mind-eff. But getting them to stand up to school boards or abusive employers who demand death shots seems to be beyond the thinking of most people.

            “… the FBI will come after the parent and label them a terrorist for trying to protect their own children.”

            That organization has already used that fear-peddling label against all Americans who don’t follow along like sheep to the Dark State Globalists. Name-calling is a bullying tactic used by abusive little kids on playgrounds. And that does not belong there, either.

            “A lot of people are just ‘coping’ at this point…”

            Yes they are. An coping like that is the sign of a captured and surrendered mind. It is a de-powering robbing of one’s energy and vitality. It is a form of personal death.

            “… how leftist white people were acting in 2020…Down on their knees apologizing for being white and slavery…”

            Again, this is another form of being captured and a form of mind abuse. No one alive today had a damn thing to do with slavery. And anyone who thinks they owe because of what some people did a long time ago are unhinged and have personality problems. We are all equal in the sight of God and no one should throw their skin color around like it’s the most important thing in existence. Because it isn’t.

            “Add these invading parasites on top of the loser degenerates and you have a double society to lord over that can’t fight…”

            No one lets someone off the street just barge into their house and sit down and demand money and to be fed. This is called being a trespasser and a thief. And this remains so when the scale is enlarged to the size of a nation.

            Maybe they should have stayed in their own country and worked to fix the problems there instead of invading someone else’s land and demanding to be treated like kings and queens.

            But that would require one to have respect and sense. Two things largely missing from the whole damn Planet.

    Putin and Film?
    Putin, maybe a little funny, but he reminds me of Foyle in the British series “Foyle’s War”.

    When you watch other English (European) films, you often experience a certain kindness, decency, respect and vivid faces that express the entire range of human emotions.

    Check, or compare to American movies, hm?
    Approx. 80% of Americans are circumcised. No, no, it doesn’t matter – has nothing to do with movies and emotions.

    By the way, Putin referred to the Motherland and the soul. Not to the ridiculous circumcised Jesus-no-man.

    Putin seemed to me to be, well feeling “othered” by Europe, caught in a romantic three way, his real crush rejecting his advances, and hurt by the lies and broken promises of getting to go to the prom; he began by telling the “creation story” of the Rus and how they became Orthodox Christian, how they never surrendered their “identity” got sobered up from the abusive lying sweet talking cluster B relationship, and decided Russian national interests would in all cases get higher priority than any corporate CEO’s interests — just the opposite of the USA, UK, EU, and special services.

    The intro creation story was to sketch out how Rus identity is an “Old Soul”, and how ever Europe lusted for her commodities, driving Rus to the bottle, really it was her own gullibility, her own damn fault. She has it straight now, the West is run by people who lie right to your face, and then blame you for attacking you, using trickery to avoid accountability, lie to their own people as they are are denounced for political disagreements. Promoting the venial, and punishing those who point out the “Emperor has no cloths”

    He seemed to imply the first step to get the USA house in order might just be, stop listening to the lies. Stop being the victims of our own sugardaddies, and start taking responsibility for our own thinking and surrendering our own power.

    For Ukraine, after the anti-Russian nazies and neo-uniparty nato arms and technologies have been defeated in violent war, healing of Ukrainian and Russian family would be “inevitable”. It will take a long time, he said, but it would happen.

    He has concluded that the CEO’s and bankers, MIC and MSM, who are in control of the West are harming their own interests due to their incompetent, short-sighted, conflicting cluster B propensity for violence, threats, lies, and propaganda such that everyone not on the gravytrain has or soon will tumble to reality just as Russia has.

      Any claim or embodiment of victimhood implies someone or something else is to blame. The root of blame is the denial of personal responsibility. Wherever we find ourselves, it’s our fault we are there, not anyone else’s.

      Russia can now understand that the West lusts after her resources, but that won’t stop the West. They will never stop, they want those resources.

      In the last two years, they have dropped the pretense, at least among themselves, and they had a conference last year in which they discussed how to destroy Russia by using her nationalities, stirring up the kind of grievances they have done so well in other countries, including the Kurds in the Middle East, and the blacks here in the US.
      People seem to be suckers for being told how oppressed they are, and how much more they deserve than they are now getting.

      Anyway, the plan is to stir up the nationalities, overthrow Putin, and divide Russia into parts, in order to more easily steal and loot all those resources.

      Our ruling overlords don’t really think that Russia is just a gas station. They know there is far more to loot, they already did it with abandon in the 90s. They don’t care that millions of Russians died in the 90s. They are happy to kill off the rest.
      That is why they sit back and chortle at the sight of Russians killing Russians in Ukraine.

      Putin should stop selling resources to the West, if he has really learned his lesson.

They used an abused everyone to fill their bank accounts and at the same time laugh at us fools. The man isn’t very bright. with or without dementia. He knew that his service as President was a joke. He knew he was just a placeholder. He knew he could continue to fill his bank account while others ran the show. And now we, the American people are stuck with a terrible situation. We have an economy that is failing, there’s no respect for the law, there’s no respect for the military, and we are being overrun by the losers of many nations who expect us to keep them. Thanks Joe Biden!

    Nobody’s commented yet on Putin’s response to Carlson’s question on if the Russian leader’s worried that American provocation could result in nuclear conflict.

    Roughly paraphrasing, Putin, calm and offhanded: “We have developed the best cruise missile and military defense systems in the world, and are improving them every day.”

    You don’t fuck with Russian engineering.

    I wasn’t surprised when Putin referenced Russia’s cultural history as being more about the soul than the practical, the latter as exemplified by the current West (to mark it as different than the continental Euro West that Russia has often flirted with). He brought up “our greatest writer, Dostoyevsky” as support.

    But I found that to be curious and a little unsettling. It reminded me that Stalin also put sincere stock in the Russian literary masters, not just the obvious Marx and Lenin readerly genuflecting.

    But Putin, like Stalin, was (still is) at base a Chekist. He was a go-between for the higher-up Russian secret service and the Stasi. One might say he’s the consummate politician: outwardly diplomatic, but quietly brutal. No wonder he jabbed the CIA several times in the interview. He must think them incredibly inept and gauche.

    The next decade will be the rise of the political strong men vs the New World Order. Us proles can only contribute so much.

        Why should Russia do that again? This time the war will be brought to US shores. At least that is what Putin said.

      What I have learned from this war is how strong Soviet defenses were.

      I was brought up the same as everyone else, believing that “We pretend to work and they pretend to pay us.”

      But now we watch as Russia struggles to evict Kiev regime forces from the Donbass. We are casually told that it is difficult because the Soviets built everything to survive nuclear bombs.

      Every frigging public structure has underground shelters, and the bridges, railroads and energy supplies are built to survive multiple attacks. Their air defenses are stellar, and it has taken 2 years for Russia to overcome the old Soviet defenses. Luckily for them, the Patriots suck.

      Meanwhile, in the US, we were told to get under our desks and cover our heads.

      It is clear who it was that both the US and the USSR thought would actually launch nuclear weapons.

      Remember when Hawaiians were told that missiles were on their way and to “Take cover”?

    Here’s my short rant of the day:

    This is what RFK Jr. had to say recently –

    “America is a nation of nature lovers. It’s true of liberals and conservatives, urban and rural folk, climate activists and climate skeptics. As president, I’ll tap into the American love for nature to protect our environment and to inspire the world with our example.”

    Sounds nice, doesn’t it? All kumbayah and everything. Even us “skeptics” (what the HELL is a “climate skeptic”) share a love of nature with climate activists.

    Au contraire, Mr. Kennedy. I share NOTHING with the people who glue themselves to art and stalk Taylor Swift.

    I share NOTHING with John Kerry, Al Gore, Leonardo DiCaprio, or any of those filthy dirty megalomaniacal lying swine.

    But you do, Mr. Kennedy. You are in bed with them, even though you KNOW what they want to do to us.

    Mark Steyn, a good and decent man, has been fighting the FRAUD known as global warming, climate change, and now just “climate”, for TWELVE YEARS.

    A DC jury has just ordered him to pay Michael Mann, “climate scientist”, a million dollars, for “defamation”.

    Is that how we do science in this country? We sue anyone who questions how we came up with our iffy results?

    I understand not wanting to lose the votes of the climate nuts, but don’t pretend you can lump me in with them as one big happy family of nature lovers.

    Climate change is not man-made. Say it. Man up.

      I think capitalism is the supercar of greed and propaganda is the fuel. When Tucker asked Poutin why he didn’t try to score any propaganda points if he had intel on the popeline bombings he said control of the whole USA media including some of EU was in the us elites hands. Same when he said the two different presidents changed there minds on agreements discussed after going back to there respective countries. Like there controlled by some other entity. The germans leadership of WW2 would blush i think at the poetry in motion before us.I think our elite have proved that their form of propaganda has no equal as explained by Putin.

      Climate change?

      It changes constantly, it is called weather.

      Look at the effect that the Pacific El Niño has on the world. It says that a warming of the ocean from unknown, NO HUMAN, causes at the equator can affect climate throughout the world.

      Phoenix’s weather is so totally different this winter, rain, rain. It is raining right now. The reservoirs are refilling, the water table is refilling, everything is verdant. Last year we were worried that Lake Mead and Powell were going to empty out. That is one year.

      The climate nuts have spent twenty five years measuring and measuring more to “prove” that man is warming us up. I do believe they have shown warming, Phoenix has been pretty hot the last five years, and ice is retreating, IN THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE. Instead of trying to figure out why that is happening, the PTB have used it as a hammer to stamp down global expansion. The Leftist nuts in DC are at the top of that conspiracy followed by Europe.

      So it is warming. Putin, in the Carlson interview said it well, Russia may get Siberia as a result of the natural warming cycle that is happening. Canada should be celebrating too as the shield warms up to be arable land. The big loser? The place that may see its SW deserts extend to much of the rest of the country, is the USA. IMHO, we will look like Mexico, wet zones near the coast, mountains in the middle and desert for much of the rest.

      Instead of measure, measure, measure we ought to be figuring out how to handle what is coming, as a planet. If America ends up being a desert, how to move agriculture to the coasts, or north to Canada. Is Russia going to be the new breadbasket, will Ukraine just become an extension of the Mideast deserts?

      The toughest part is that global leaders, in their fight for power, are using the minute changes for propaganda. Unless the peoples, like the farmers in Europe, take their power back, the government controlled decline will continue.

      EV’s are a joke, a bad dream, conservation never works in the long term, opening the border to a huge group of ignorant malcontents certainly does not work, and college degrees of sustainability have not provided one single usable alternative to offset the minute changes.

      Are we effed? We are if we continue down the current path. Resource wars have already started with no solution in sight. Wars are going to resort to obliteration of the opposition instead of political ceasefires. Diverse cultures, yes us, will subdivide as competition for resources intensifies. The USA as world leader is going to disappear in five years as everything the Deep State is doing is WRONG, WRONG, WRONG. BRICS++ is the future as the competition between the USA and the WEF destroys both of them.

      Putin’s interview is a premonition of the future. He is correct on most of his prophesies, IMHO, so do not pay much attention to the addled brain reactions of the Deep State and its media.

      • JohnAZ February 10, 2024 at 12:07 pm #

        Think about history, every time humanity has been confronted with nature caused climate changes, think Ice Age, or overcrowding, like late Middle Ages, they move on, America is the result of the latter. Right now, we are running out of space to expand.

        We are supposed to be sentient beings, being able to reason through problems. Right now, the idiocy of Leftist politics is blocking any intelligent reaction to this century’s first crisis.

      I think it’s actually a very nice sentiment and one that should be welcomed and not eschewed. Did he say that he agreed with the ruling against Mark Steyn? I think he would probably be against such a thing. And the narrative that they are putting out about climate change may not be real it is extraordinarily clear that human activity can modify weather and obviously ecosystems. And now they are also geogineering with chemtrails and spraying plastic and metal nano particles onto the Earth. So it’s not so simply black and white.

    The PTB, the “leaders” of the world should set a good example for the rest of us by being the first to volunteer for euthanasia. After all, they are the ones telling us that overpopulation is killing us.

    They can line up for their covid shots, every six months and then just die away.

    When enough of them die, things will run a lot better and the rest of us can get back to just living normal lives.

    “Mr. Putin also confirmed my own conjecture: that, after the fall of the USSR, Russia had one overriding concern in foreign affairs: to be re-admitted to the European family of nations as a once-again “normal,” member, especially in trade relations, after seventy-five years of its peculiar communist experiment. He spoke of this quite ruefully as a lost opportunity to shore up Western Civilization”.

    That part got me, too. I recalled the big hue and cry about our finally getting a “peace dividend” because the Cold War was over. The (back-then) Blob came up w some lame excuses for maintaining and even increasing military spending. And here we are, dead broke and still in the war business.

    • TruthSeeker1986 February 10, 2024 at 4:21 pm #

      Well if we were really half as broke as everyone keeps saying we are, then we would be in the same situation Venezuela is in right now, but we aren’t at the level where people are digging in the trash, not to collect bottles and cans to sell for a few dollars, but they are digging because they are savaging around for food to eat. So far not even the homeless in California are eating out of the trash yet.

        You need to understand the reason why Venezuela citizens are eating their zoo animals as opposed to US citizens vacationing in Disneyworld.

        The reason is the US owns the printing press for US Dollars while Venezuela does not enjoy the privilege of owning the world’s reserve currency.

        That capability is changing and US citizens may soon be facing the same choice as those in Venezuela.

        The real nightmare is that this horrific outcome has been caused by that government “elected” by the US citizens themselves.

      Well John F. Kennedy was a democrat too… Maybe a different one I mean he did see some combat, was in the navy, etc. From what I read he even almost got torpedod. I guess that counts for something vs the assholes who warmonger at DC today and won’t set foot anywhere near a battlefield but will gladly have everyone else die while they collect the spoils.

      • Blackbird February 11, 2024 at 1:02 am #

        Almost got torpedoed? Hell, the PT-109 (Lt. [j.g.] JFK commanding) got rammed and cut in two by a Japanese destroyer. You don’t get much closer to the enemy than that. He even had to present falsified medical records to the Navy in order to have the opportunity to put himself in harm’s way.

        JFK had many weaknesses, but he also had strengths to offset them – a balance unachievable by most of the corrupt imbeciles in DC today.

        • TruthSeeker1986 February 11, 2024 at 1:48 am #

          I didn’t know that about the PT-109. I’m guessing he was probably the last President to ever be involved in the heat of battle like that because the rest so far would scoff at the very idea of putting themselves in that situation. It’s much easier to round up a bunch of other people and have them do it.

    As a former reader of JHK’s blogs in the mid-2000’s, before he went down the rabbit hole of right wing hyperbole, hypotheses and dogma, there used to be intelligent discussions/comments here. Now, after a 15 year hiatus, all I see here is the same echo-chamber/dumpster fire of verbal diarrhea being spewed out from those on the “right” as I see from other sites from those on the “left”. Just switch the names and it could easily be script for the other side.

    After having only read the comments from the last two recent posts, it’s clear this has become a cesspool of self-referentialists, simply reinforcing the echo chamber. Cogent thought doesn’t seem so cogent here anymore.

    And when exactly did an (unholy) alliance between Putin, Trump, Jinping (and presumably Kim-Jong Un) become a desirable outcome? Sounds like a totally perfect plan for the remaining 8 billion underlings, i.e. you and me. Hey, if this servitude isn’t killing it for you already, you gotta try this! Here boy. Here boy.

    The boys are just going to go have drinks – or maybe go for a game of golf – and decide to be BFF’s… maybe do a little dick sucking or trading wives to “seal the deal”. Wars will be over. The Europeans will become irrelevant (fascist libtards that they are), and Iran will soon become the next club member. They’ll all hang out at Mar-a-Lardo making sure the rest of us have the very best of life possible – because we all know in the deepest of our souls that these people truly have our best interests at heart.

    What exactly is it that has infected your brains that you’re so unaware of? Oh, I know! COVID vaccinations. There we go… that’s always a perfect go-to answer in the conspiracy-rich ecology of the right, as has been demonstrated in several comments here: mom died of something because of COVID vaccines. Is buddy a doctor? Doubtful. But it sure makes great cow feed to spread around the stable. 🙂

    I must comment on this tho: “President Biden” in quotation marks.

    Total. Fucking. Eye. Roll.

    WTF is that supposed to mean? (As if I don’t already know.)

    There used to be a Canadian game show called the Front Page Challenge just like What’s My Line. Out of three hidden individuals, the 4 person panel had to guess who the the “real” person was based on their answers to questions. I guess the inference here is that the “real” president of the great and amazing US of A is Trump?

    Trump – best described as:

    Grand Poo-bah.

    Strong man! Whoop, whoop, whoop! (My testosterone levels are already rising as I write this!)

    Victimus Extremis Maximus.

    The poster-boy of being downtrodden and abused. (Maybe all that orange tan stuff and bleached hair is masking a black, disabled lesbian underneath. No wonder he feels so disenfranchised…. fucking disabled lesbians! They get all the attention now instead of me.)

    The penultimate innocent, selfless, law-abiding, man of stature and honor being persecuted by a pernicious deep state that only started AFTER JB got elected and the system is 100% in the hands of the despicable “left”.

    A Jesus incarnation.

    The ultimate – grab-them-by-the-pussy-and-rape-them-in-a-change room – role model for children – especially boys now that they have free reign over raping women without consequences. 🙂

    The laudations must be endless for y’all.

    Come back as you probably will with attacks that I am a Biden “blob” (isn’t that such a clever collective group-think euphemism) but I am Canadian and have little to no skin in the game, other than whatever consequences flow from your next election… which I fear could be highly problematic for Canada because there is no doubt Trump will go pedal-to-the-metal on protectionism and instead of “Blame Canada”, it will become “Fuck Canada”.

        You’re really reaching with that one when your President Joe mashed potato brains Biden literally hung out with a former member of the KKK.

        Has uttered such notable lines as “You ain’t black if you don’t vote for me.

        Biden white-splained that Latinos in America resist vaccinations because “they’re worried that they’ll be vaccinated and deported.”

        “They are used to being experimented on—the Tuskegee Airmen and others,” Biden said.

        In this, he confused legendary World War II fighter pilots with a long, notorious governmental study of syphilis among black men—the Tuskegee Experiment.

        “unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.” -Joe Biden

        In the same interview, responding to a question on whether he had taken a cognitive test, Biden angrily fired back with the suggestion that the black reporter was a drug addict.

        “That’s like saying you . . . before you got in this program, you’re take [sic] a test whether you’re taking cocaine or not,” Biden said. “What do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?”

        In 2010, he warmly eulogized Sen. Robert Byrd, a former Exalted Cyclops in the Ku Klux Klan, saying he was “one of my mentors” and that “the Senate is a lesser place for his going.”

        In 2007, he referred to Barack Obama as “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean.”

    I just finished watching Tucker Carlson’s interview with Vladimir Putin on Carlson’s YouTube channel. It was titled, “Exclusive: Tucker Carlson Interviews Vladimir Putin”. A more accurate title would have been, “Vladimir Putin Educates Tucker Carlson”. Well, at least Putin tried to educate him.

    Carlson disappointed me with his seeming ignorance on the history of the current situation in the Ukraine, and how it developed out of the actions of the US toward Russia since the fall of the Soviet Union. For example, he kept asking, basically, “Why did you wait until 2022 to invade?” Anyone following developments in that part of the world, even in such a casual and piecemeal fashion as I have, understands that Putin was trying to avoid the destructive confrontation that ultimately developed.

    Carlson, with his background in history, and career as a journalist covering political and international issues, should have been well aware of the development of the conflict between Russia and the Ukraine, but seemed almost as oblivious as any run-of-the mill US citizen. His questioning in regard to any potential Russian designs on the Baltics, Poland, or other European countries, may have been simply to set to rest this nonsensical belief widely held by the unthinking US masses, but if so, he probably should have addressed the issue from that perspective. The way he approached it made him look even more uninformed than I think he really is.

    I was also disappointed by Carlson’s frequent interruptions. Typical of the short attention span of the average US citizen.

    Putin’s tact – something unfashionable among western politicians these days – led him to being (in my opinion) somewhat less than honest in some of his answers, to questions such as, “Who is really in-charge in the US?” His seeming bewilderment over why the US, and our vassals, would make such self-destructive decisions, also appeared to be a smokescreen. (The decisions of the US are meant to destroy the economies of the US and western Europe in order to tenderize them for consumption by the New World Order. They are not reckless or incompetent mistakes.)

    I was disappointed by Putin’s omission, during his lesson in Russian history, of a discussion of the fact that while the Principality of Kiev resisted the Mongol invasion, and suffered horrendously as a result, the Principality of Novgorod acquiesced without a fight and survived relatively intact. This may be because Kiev would not turn the rebellious Cuman turks who sought their protection, over to the Mongols – the “noble” thing to do, while surrendering without a fight – as Novgorod did – was, and still is in many circles, considered “cowardly”. Well, one principality survived, forming the seed of what later would become Muscovy which eventually evolved into Russia, and the other was crushed with great loss of life as well as a long-term loss of sovereignty. Who made the best decision?

    The Mongol invasion also set the stage – in my opinion – for the separation of the Ukraine from Russia. Due to constant slave-raiding by the Tatars “Wild Fields” between Moscow and the Black Sea remained largely unpopulated for centuries, earning the label of “Ukraine” – the border lands. Meanwhile, the ethnic Russians in what had been the western part of the Principality of Kiev came under the rule of The Grand Duchy of Lithuania, and eventually the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. This is a history which festers to this day and – in my opinion – is very important to understanding the eventual separation of the Ukraine from Russia. For Putin to leave this out of the conversation was unfortunate. I suspect he did it because that era in history legitimizes, for some, the Ukraine’s separation from, and antagonism toward, Russia. Also, it would have added another 20 minutes to Putin’s history lesson. Carlson, and much of his audience, would probably have checked out and made a run to McDonalds.

    Damn, look at that wall of words. Fortunately you all have a scroll button. Unfortunately some things just can’t be adequately explained by emoji. Hard to believe, but true – in my opinion.

      Carlson was everyman trying to extract cash value from Putin’s learned but somewhat biased lecture.

      Putin also left out the vicious treatment of Ukrainian peasants by the Polish lords, who used the Jews as their bully boys. The Peasants couldn’t get at the Polish knights but they did extract revenge at night. Unfortunately for the Jews, the Orthodox peasants found powerful friends in the Cossacks who turned the tide in that conflict, with resulting great loss of life. But nobody forced the Jews to put themselves in the middle of a conflict between Civilizations. They chose and suffered the result of their choice.

      To be fair, he did mention the name of the great Cossack leader. But he gave no juicy details, content to be a pompous little professor, a Russian Glenn Beck. I’m being harsh. He was just playing a role. He’s very comfortable with the martial aspects of life. But he knows most people aren’t. How fucked up is that?

    ‘Mr. Putin also confirmed my own conjecture: that, after the fall of the USSR, Russia had one overriding concern in foreign affairs: to be re-admitted to the European family of nations as a once-again “normal,” member, especially in trade relations, after seventy-five years of its peculiar communist experiment. He spoke of this quite ruefully as a lost opportunity to shore up Western Civilization — now engaged in a mystifying act of mass suicide that Russia decidedly wishes to opt out of by strategically reorienting with the BRICs bloc.’ JHK

    Well, Ukraine wanted to be admitted to the European family of nations back in 2014, but Yanukovych reneged on his promise to side with the West and went with Russia. He was found guilty of treason by a Ukrainian court for trying to suppress pro-Western demonstrations and fled to Russia.

    Piss on Putin. I suppose he should again control the Baltic states, Poland, Hungary, etc. Putin’s claim to Ukraine is dubious at best. Putin is a dictator who stays in power through rigged elections and the murder of political opponents.

    The Russia, Russia, Russia, hoaxes here led by the Left don’t change the facts as to who Putin is and how he stays in power. If he really wanted to be part of the European family of nations, why didn’t he join Ukraine who wanted just that back in 2014?

    In a rather sick and naively warped way, the romance with the Prince of Pricks grows in direct proportion to our government’s attack on our own nation. It’s somewhat understandable but seems to ignore a huge moral issue, to wit: The Ukrainians want to be independent, they’ve had enough of Russian domination. Remember Stalin and the Holodomor, for example.

    Our involvement in Ukraine is another issue. Even if it were for truly noble purposes, sometimes being right on the moral issue can lead to dangerous tactical and strategic consequences, which may wind up being the case here.

    It’s true that our democracy has failed us. Maybe a ‘benevolent dictator’ is the answer. But Putin is a malevolent one, an anachronistic assassin, a titan of tergiversation and totalitarianism, or at least its hybrid. See the following:

    A significant number of those Russians who support Vladimir Putin’s “special military operation” in Ukraine vehemently refuse to listen to any arguments that would challenge their blinkered vision of the world. This is a sign of a society that is no longer authoritarian, but partly totalitarian, and accepts the state position as its own.

    Once spoken about in terms of hybrid authoritarianism, Russia later turned out to be a fully mature authoritarian regime. Now, following the evisceration of civil society and civic life in general, including independent media, and following the “special operation”—unprecedented in its negative consequences—there are elements of totalitarianism in Putin’s authoritarian system that can no longer be ignored.

    Even before the “special operation,” the sociologist Lev Gudkov defined the system as “recurring totalitarianism,” meaning the regeneration of totalitarian elements that had been briefly paused under the Boris Yeltsin model of governance. What has happened to Russia as a result of Putin’s twenty-two-year rule could be termed “neo-totalitarianism.” However, given the preservation of a range of key elements of authoritarianism, I would propose the term “hybrid totalitarianism” to describe the regime.

    SILENCE IS NOT ENOUGH
    In their book, Spin Dictators: The Changing Face of Tyranny in the 21st Century, Daniel Treisman and Sergei Guriev argued that modern dictators rely more on the manipulation of information than on more traditional methods such as repression, especially on a mass scale. This was also true of Putin up to a certain point, but it became clear back in 2020—the year that the Russian constitution was changed to allow him to remain in power beyond his present term, and also the year that the opposition leader Alexei Navalny was poisoned—that his “spin dictatorship” was degenerating into something more uncompromising and repressive. Putin, who retreated to his bunker during the pandemic and has never really left it, has become increasingly embittered and ruthless, as has his system, based on the complete subjugation of the political and economic establishment and the silent assent of the masses.

    The silent assent of the majority, according to the sociologist and philosopher Ralf Dahrendorf, is one of the key signs of authoritarianism. Those who refuse to submit, he wrote, are persecuted, silenced, imprisoned, sometimes exiled, but the state, as a rule, no longer kills them.

    Those who stay silent together are acting according to a kind of unwritten social contract: the government provides people with a basic level of wellbeing or stability, and ordinary people refrain from interfering in state affairs, or even taking an interest in them.

    From 2014, wellbeing was replaced by something akin to “making Russia great again,” but the general public was still required to do one thing only: keep out of the affairs of the elites. Ultimately, however, wherever there is a central thesis about a state’s greatness, there will always be mobilization: in support of the government and the flag, and now, as it turns out, in support of military “feats.”

    This is the mobilized model that Dahrendorf called totalitarian: when regimes use complete mobilization of each and every person in the name of some kind of ideology, and in the interests of the leader, or a small ruling clique. War, the German-British political scientist observed, is invariably built into this kind of regime as the inevitable culmination of its development. Of course, mobilization requires artificially provoked crises, which are used to consolidate power.

    In the 1950s, Zbigniew Brzezinski and Carl Friedrich devised a theory about totalitarian dictatorship versus autocracy. In their interpretation, the main element of authoritarianism is prohibitions, and understandings of what people must not do, while totalitarianism encompasses both prohibitions and imperatives or prescribed behavior. In other words, subjects have to know not only what they should not do, but also what they should do, at the direct behest of the state. It’s not just repression and control that are important, but also the mobilization of the already submissive masses.

    Sure enough, elements of such interaction between the state and society appeared in full force following the start of Russia’s war in Ukraine. It’s no longer enough to keep a demobilized silence; people must trumpet their support for the regime, whether by arranging young children in kindergartens into the shape of the letter Z (the symbol of the “special operation”), holding lessons in schools on combating “fake news” about Russia’s actions, or encouraging students and teachers to denounce each other for any expression of opposition to the war.

    Putin’s public call for a “self-cleansing” of society is a totalitarian practice, rather than authoritarian. So is dividing the population into “patriots” versus “national traitors” or a “fifth column.” In other cases, it’s not enough simply to sit in silent assent; it must be spoken aloud. Loyalty must be demonstrated. This is a sign of a good citizen—or rather, a good subject.

    AN (ANTI-) CULTURE OF HATRED
    Hatred of the enemy is also required, without motivation and without thinking. This applies not just to the foreign foe, but also to the enemy within. A totalitarian system cultivates a love for violence against its enemies, and looks for justification in historical examples. This partly explains why in the modern Russian public consciousness, Stalin has in recent years been transformed into a positive figure.

    An (anti)culture of hatred toward everything declared alien justifies the comprehensive purging of civil society and the public sphere in general: from this stems the complete block on independent media, the destruction of reputable educational organizations, and the ban on work by any foreign research structures. All authoritarian legislation rests on this culture of hatred and intolerance, including the much-used law designating organizations and even individuals as “foreign agents.”

    This culture of hatred is expressed through the language of hatred. The problem is that in a society gripped by aggressive submission, the discussion gets broader and broader. You can call your compatriot—a fellow citizen, but one who happens to have a different opinion—a “traitor” and consider them an inferior kind of person. You can, like the most senior state officials, speculate freely and quite calmly on the prospects of nuclear war: something that was certainly never permitted in Soviet times during Pax Atomica, when the two sides understood that the ensuing damage was completely unthinkable. Now that understanding is waning, and that is yet another sign of the anthropological disaster Russia is facing.

    It was only through sheer good fortune that a nuclear crisis was avoided during the occupation of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant by Russian troops. The people who contrived to dig trenches in a radioactive zone are being taught non-existent lessons from a non-existent history by Putin, but don’t know the real lessons of history, not even from Chernobyl.

    Totalitarian practices are self-destructive. They reduce the quality of human capital, because the best people are hunted down, while the worst are promoted, resulting in negative selection. They facilitate the deterioration of the economy. But imagined political expedience is put above socio-economic rationality.

    The presence of the state in Russia is enormous everywhere, not just in the economy. But economically, the dependence of millions of people on the state as their employer and, effectively, an ATM, is an additional factor in keeping workers subjugated. Economic dependence engenders political dependence.

    Meanwhile, the state—forced in turn to maintain high budget revenues in order to buy the political loyalty of the majority—is dependent on oil. Oil and gas have made their own invaluable contribution to the evolution of the political and ideological system of Putin’s Russia. Dutch disease is also, it turns out, a political disease. Back in the 1970s, the former Venezuelan oil minister and OPEC co-founder Juan Pablo Perez Alfonzo warned: “Ten years from now, twenty years from now, you will see: oil will bring us ruin.” That is exactly what happened, only the economic collapse is also accompanied by political degradation.

    One final sign of totalitarianism is self-isolation and false beliefs about a country’s ability in the modern world to live solely by its own means, eschewing anything foreign. Russia is no stranger to such thinking: Stalinist ideology claimed Soviet/Russian superiority in everything, from the invention of the radio to cultural achievements.

    Russia has immersed itself in an anti-utopian delusion. This truly is “recurring totalitarianism,” but it has elements and properties that are difficult to explain, given that the country does, after all, now have some idea of what political democracy, a civic culture and market economy, and rights and freedoms look like.

    One important question is how long this aggressively conformist mood can be sustained—and indeed the hybrid regime itself, given that it relies on bayonets, police batons, and orders from the Justice Ministry and communications regulator. From the inside, the current situation seems not only hopeless, but irrevocable. History has shown, however, that totalitarian regimes are inefficient, and that their rulers are capable of hacking away at the very pillars supporting them. This won’t help the Russian people, but it’s a case, unfortunately, of us having proven the most banal and trite political truth: that every nation has the government it deserves.

      If one seeks to water a plant, one waters the roots not the leaves and branches. What is the root of Ukrainian nationalism? National Socialism. Will you affirm that?

      I admit that it has been poorly practiced so far. I don’t know if their theory is solid or not. In any case, they trusted the Global Slave masters to help them drive out the Russians, expect that they would then just leave and let them have an ethno-state. They were never going to do that. Zelensky had already begun creating a Globalist hell on Earth, complete with Blacks and trannyism taught in the schools.

    Posted on February 9, 2024Legitimate Preference: A Guide for Our People
    Jef Costello, American Renaissance, February 9, 2024

    This powerful little book, which boasts a foreword by Jared Taylor, advances a simple but revolutionary thesis: that we have a right to prefer — specifically, a right to prefer our own people. We owe life itself to our racial forebears, as well as the culture that makes our lives meaningful. “Legitimate preference,” writes Tim Vorgens, “could be defined as the disposition of mind which makes us systematically and exclusively favor [our own group], rather than . . . those groups to which we owe nothing.”

    The attachment we feel to our own is pre-rational and does not result from conscious choice. Imagine if Big Brother commanded us to love our own children and the children of strangers equally — to stop preferring our children. We would regard such a demand as perverse. And yet, it is this that is expected of us when it comes to our feelings about our extended family, our nation or race.

    The situation is actually worse. We are not told that we must love our own people and other peoples equally. We are told that we must prefer “the other” and repudiate our own kind, that we must perpetually wear sackcloth and ashes, in unceasing repentance for the supposed sins of our race. Guilt, we hear over and over, is the only legitimate feeling we can have about our history.

    Many whites have been thoroughly cowed by the taboo against preferring one’s own race. Indeed, we have been taught to “adore the other as an ideal,” Mr. Vorgens writes, though only the most doctrinaire leftists seem truly capable of this. They are the people who are willing to put their fellow whites in danger “for the sole pleasure of being elected the most moral community in the world.”

    Strikingly, Mr. Vorgens writes of liberals that “they are the flesh that wants to become a concept.” This is a memorable way of calling attention to the fact that leftists seem to live in denial of the body, denying the influence of genetics (on intelligence and other factors), the inherent differences between the sexes, and natural inequalities of all kinds. They are willing to risk their own bodies, and yours too, for the sake of signaling their commitment to the impossible ideal of multiculturalism.

    Leftists might deny biology, but their own bodies, like those of all living organisms, seek to survive and flourish — even if their bodies must do so by deceiving their conscious minds. Thus, liberals build what Mr. Vorgens calls “safe spaces” for themselves — for example, living in gated communities with other whites or moving to new locations in search of “good schools.” Mr. Vorgens refers to this as “hypocritical preference.”

    Through their actions, even leftists therefore concede that our great multiracial experiment has failed. “So why continue the experiment?” Mr. Vorgens asks. “Why not reclaim our right to Preference? . . . Preferring our fellow human beings and hiring, and renting a property, and accessing services . . . as we already do in the field of love, or in the field of daily relationships.” (Note: Mr. Vorgens often uses the expression “our fellow human beings” when what he actually means is “human beings like us.”)

    Mr. Vorgens writes that “In our situation of disenfranchisement, we cannot demand anything less than the right to Prefer.” This is at once an extremely simple idea and, in present circumstances, an extremely radical one. If a black man stated that he preferred to live and work around other blacks, liberals would hardly notice. But woe unto any white man who expresses the same preference for his own race.

    We have to state our preference frankly and forthrightly, Mr. Vorgens argues, as if it were the most simple, obvious, and natural thing in the world (which it is): “I prefer living and working with other white people.” And this must be said without the slightest hesitancy or apology. To use one of Mr. Vorgens’s examples, mothers should say, “My kids need doctors who look like them.”

    To express such preference, he says, is “just to let our nature speak.” Here, Mr. Vorgens refers obliquely to the power of genetic similarity. We are drawn to others who are genetically like ourselves, and we feel varying degrees of discomfort around those who are genetically dissimilar. F. Roger Devlin has summarized some of the scientific research in this area:

    When white and black people are shown pictures of strangers, the amygdala region in their brains displays heightened activity, indicating vigilance or wariness toward unfamiliar faces. But when the pictures are shown a second time only the other-race faces provoke high amygdala activity: the brain perceives the same-race faces as “familiar” after only one viewing.

    Incidentally, researchers have found that conservatives have bigger amygdalae than liberals. Reclaiming the right to prefer means giving your amygdala a “much-needed vacation.” It means being able to breathe and relax. It means being able to leave our houses or cars unlocked and possibly even to leave our babies out on the sidewalk while we have lunch in a café, as they do in Denmark.

    Though their amygdalae may object, white people do make a strong effort to direct good will toward “the other.” White benevolence is not entirely a matter of ideological indoctrination. It flows from the qualities of openness, generosity, and curiosity about difference that are Europeans hallmarks. Mr. Vorgens acknowledges this, writing that “white ‘kindness’ must not be eradicated, but contained, framed and re-educated. Legitimate Preference is the framework in which it can be exercised in a non-pathological way.”

    Mr. Vorgens does not, however, have much to say about how to accomplish this. Throughout the book, he insists that rational arguments alone are not enough to exhort whites to re-claim the right to prefer. He states that “Being right [i.e., being correct] often leads one to rely on the supposed power of truth, but truth has no power. Truth is not a power. The rationality of our cause is, most likely, not enough on its own.”

    I’m not sure I agree that “truth has no power.” I’ve personally witnessed many cases in which people of average intelligence, with little or no claim to being “intellectual,” changed their minds on major issues when presented with simple arguments founded on well-supported premises. Nevertheless, there is no denying the power of rhetoric, and it is really rhetoric that Mr. Vorgens has in mind (though he does not use the term), when he writes, “We must use tools that reach the emotions.”

    Surely this is the only path to achieve one of the major goals he sets for himself: to make white preference “trendy” within the next 10 years. And Mr. Vorgens’s own book is certainly charged with emotional power. “Legitimate Preference,” he writes, “makes you realize that you are more than an individual. You are a lineage that crosses time and conquers space.”

    This claim will stir something deep within many of Mr. Vorgens’s readers. Yet we all know that many whites would be entirely unmoved. What can we do with such people? Is it possible to teach love of one’s own, including a love of one’s history and lineage, to someone who doesn’t feel it? Maybe not. But if an atrophied remnant of that love slumbers within, surely it is possible to awaken it.

    One approach is to offer some version of “white eschatology” — the title of one of the later chapters in Legitimate Preference. Here Mr. Vorgens offers us a vision of the white race as “the promethean people.” By this, he means that whites possess a kind of “racial mission” that amounts to the mastery and control of nature.

    Prometheus Bound and the Oceanids by Eduard Müller (1879). Credit: Album / Tolo Balaguer

    No other race seems to possess the same infinite striving both to know nature and to transform it. To many, this is inspiring, but it could be our downfall. It may be that prometheanism is both our glory and our tragic flaw.

    As Mr. Vorgens notes, white prometheanism has given us “earthquake anticipation, storm forecasting, early detection of cancers, weather monitoring, anti-flood dams, artificial intelligence risk forecasting, pollutant management, concern for ecological changes, etc.” And yet it also proclaims that even though multiculturalism has always led to the downfall of civilizations, this time we will get it right. Prometheanism has such confidence in its powers that it wants to phase out fossil fuels before we find viable alternatives. It is prometheanism that brought us gain-of-function research and “sex change” operations. We hear its siren song when college professors declare that “real communism has never been tried.” All these follies have been brought to you by “the promethean people,” that is, white folks.

    Oswald Spengler was arguably closer to the mark when he called European man “Faustian.” Our tremendous strides in knowledge and mastery do indeed seem a bit like a deal with the Devil, since they have ushered in modern hubris that sees nature as infinitely malleable and man as its measure.

    It is modern prometheanism, in fact, that is at the root of the Left’s denial of all natural limits and its conviction that everything is open to subjective human choice. We need to have a more nuanced view of our promethean nature than Mr. Vorgens offers.

    Mr. Vorgens’s “white eschatology” also bears more than a passing resemblance to William Pierce’s “cosmotheism.” Pierce was prompted to develop cosmotheism when a high school student asked him, “Why do you think it’s so important for the white race to survive?” In response, he argued that the universe is evolving toward consciousness of itself and that the white race is the vehicle of that cosmic self-awareness, principally through science.

    In other words, science is nature knowing itself — and science was created by, and continues to be dominated by, white men. William Pierce’s theory is intellectually exciting (though it is essentially just a warmed-over version of Hegel’s philosophy). Cosmotheism presents a case for why the white race is worth saving. But is it successful as a way to exhort whites to save themselves?

    Mr. Vorgens is correct when he says we need to awaken “self-preference” in whites — or, better still, self-love, love of one’s own. But love is not based on reasons or justifications. Men don’t love their children because they’re rationally convinced that they are the best children in the neighborhood. They love their children simply because they are their own.

    We must, as Mr. Vorgens argues, reclaim the right to prefer our own, without apology, but also without justification. If I tell people I prefer to live and work around other whites, and they ask, “Why?” it is an entirely legitimate response simply to say I just do. Other races don’t need a “reason” for preferring their own. They just do.

    Nor do we need to spin grandiose myths about the white race to justify our love for it. A love that we feel the need to justify is a weak love. A religious man who feels the need to supplement his faith with rational arguments for God’s existence is, whatever he may tell you, suffering from a crisis of faith. True love, like true faith, requires no justification.

    Legitimate Preference concludes on a surer footing, with a chapter titled “The Fifteen Rules.” Here Mr. Vorgens sets forth a kind of ethics for white nationalism. He argues that we need to cultivate three qualities: intolerance, opportunism, and clannishness. These are all self-explanatory save, perhaps, “opportunism,” by which Mr. Vorgens means seizing “what offers an advantage to our compatriots.”

    These three are usually seen as vices. Yet, they are essential to the continuance and flourishing of an ethnic group — and only groups that cultivated these ethnic “virtues” have survived through centuries of change. Jews are undoubtedly the best illustration of this.

    Mr. Vorgens invokes the Greek concept of storg?, which means “familial love,” in contrast to eros (erotic love), philia (love of friends), and agap? (love for humanity as a whole). For the ancients, storg? commonly referred to the love between parents and children, but it can include an extended family or clan. Mr. Vorgens writes that “Storg? at its maximum size (that of the entire racial vessel) becomes the Legitimate Preference.” To safeguard our race and culture and promote its flourishing, storg? — the pursuit of our common good — must become our morality, he argues, and “we must abandon everything else.”

    I will not discuss in detail the 15 rules that follow, aside from mentioning a few examples. Readers will surely agree with the first rule: “Every individual in the Preferential family must favor the creation of harmonious white homes [i.e., homelands] for himself and then for his fellows, as soon as circumstances permit.”

    The second rule tells us that our preference for other whites must take precedence over all sympathies we might have for others. The third enjoins us to be honest and open with our fellow whites and to “save cunning for [those outside] the community, when necessary.”

    Mr. Vorgens is clearly speaking to the young men in our movement who seek in white nationalism a “way” — a discipline and a hard path — when he calls for “a cult of health, body, knowledge, heroics, and positive eugenics,” and tells us that “the link between Europeans of the past, present and future, is to be the object of regular meditation.”

    We are asked (rule ten) to become role models, especially for the young, by “confronting them with our unabashed Preference.” Other elements are less clear, as when Mr. Vorgens calls on us to “Reduce the gap between scientific discovery and understanding of the world,” and when he speaks of cultivating a “vitalist metaphysics,” though the idea is intriguing.

    There is a great deal of good advice here and much that can provide inspiration for those on our side. Legitimate Preference is brimming with ideas, and it is written with great passion. Tim Vorgens’s text is clearly a labor of love — born of “legitimate preference,” or love of one’s own.

    Some ideas are less clear and less persuasive than others. Also, Mr. Vorgens has translated the book into English himself, and there are a number of errors of usage. While the author’s meaning is usually clear, the reader scratches his head over some sentences.

    In this age of print on demand, it is not too late to correct that problem. I recommend that the publisher find a native English speaker to revise this translation.

    Setting aside these minor reservations, there is much in Legitimate Preference that anyone in our movement can profit from.

    Jarek: What a treasure in a few simple words. The golden thread to lead us back home through the matrix: To prefer one’s own people, to be natural, like everyone else.

    The diagnosis: The Prometheanism of Faustian Man. We think we can overcome all natural laws, even those within our own selves. That’s different than working with those laws, is it not? Our outer technology is not a denial of the laws of physics and chemistry. Why do we think we can deny the laws of our psyche? Hubris indeed, with nemesis already all around us, inflicting its penalty.

    I would add a bizarre Marxist Christianity as another ingredient in the toxic brew. We don’t need God or his Heaven. We’ll create it right here on Earth by OURSELVES. Sure we will…..

    Faustian Man – Whites – need to reconnect with humility. Only then can our promethean nature serve us instead of destroying us. As Mr Vorgens says, Storge or familial love in its broadest possible context, is the only way forward. And what is National Socialism but the application of exactly this?

    From a more typically American angle: The Bill of Rights is meaningless without the unwritten right of free association.

      @Jarek

      I really hate to sound black pilled but it’s too late… I don’t see how whites are ever going to recover from self hatred. This was clearly done to them on purpose. Should I blame this on the Jews or someone else that taught self hatred to whites? Was it Obama or a combination of Obama and Jewish elites that felt that white people were a threat and hated them so much they decided to use blacks to eradicate their self esteem?

      Leftist women outright hook up with black men as a way to rebel against their own whiteness even going as far as to brand themselves like cows with these weird Queen of Spade tattoos to show how deep their hate is for who they are.

      It’s become even more mainstream in pornography after a Jewish Frenchmen realized that white people were at their lowest, to take advantage of the increased self hate and low self esteem epidemic among them. He decided to introduce a studio known as BLACKED and managed to use that to manipulate, brainwash, and cuck the world into believing that black men are some kind of “superior” race of man that every woman desires of every ethnicity. So they’ve even used black men in Japan to emasculate Japanese men the same way they are emasculating White men with the West. And I’m trying to figure out why are the Japanese doing this to themselves? Obviously whatever white women do in the States, the shit spreads like aids to other countries.

      And now you have Europeans who are on the brink of losing West Europe to Negros and Muslims because of all that mental abuse and white women advocating open borders. I’ve only seen a few women regrets this but only after they were a victim of sexual violence like that one German feminist that turned on feminism after she was victimized by Middle eastern men and admitted that she advocated open borders.

      You have interracial porn, television, movies, the education system in schools… All of these factors contribute to destroying white people on a psychological level. Not only did a Jewish Frenchmen use interracial porn to mind fuck whites and is doing it to Asians. You had that half Japanese clown promoting the Kalergi plan which is probably why they started pushing blackness on Japan hoping that blacks will do the same to them like they’ve done to White people. Destroy them mentally and psychologically.

        @Jarek

        The fact is, blacks won’t feel guilty not even in a million years about colonize white people, taking their women or even successfully breeding them out of existence if they were to attempt to do so. And it would be impossible to make them feel guilty about any of it because one thing for certain. Blacks are less empathetic even toward other blacks. That’s why they have no problem killing their own. Tell them that blacks owned slaves and they scoff at this, their only concern is focusing on the whites who owned slaves because it’s easier for them to direct their hate and anger at white people than it is toward other blacks for this.

        Why? It gives them an excuse to be racist toward white people and they are allowed to do so. That’s why in America you have blacks who demand having their own colleges strictly for blacks and only blacks. Back in 2003 a black Muslim was going around Sniping people in Washington, mainly targeting white people because he wanted to build a nation for young black males. Although he was executed for the shootings. Had he done this today, he would have been pardon for it.

          But you are right, white people are forbidden from wanting their own of anything. All of this is done on purpose. It’s easier to bully them and take their nations from them…. Caucasian people today won’t fight to defend what belongs to them. The Farmers did it because their livelihoods were being threaten. But you don’t see the fighting spirit to push the invaders out, instead more of them just keep coming while white people stand there and take it because their own leaders have betrayed them.

        • Jarek February 11, 2024 at 12:53 pm #

          Yes, we can expect no mercy from the Tribe or their dark skinned servants, be they Black or Hispanic. Nor from the Chinese if it goes that way. Nor from the Muslims. I’d take the Chinese before the rest. They might at least let us live and remain White.

          One famed White Nationalist, Harold Covington, even mused that we might have to convert to Islam to save ourselves. If we did it voluntarily, the other Muslims wouldn’t be able to take our women and breed us out of existence. The Bosnians did so and remain White. The Albanians as well, if less so.

          Yes, it’s very late in the day. If we could begin again, perhaps we could remedy the errors that doomed us. But we’re not going to be just given that chance by anyone. Perhaps only God, after a cataclysm. Saved by the BELL.

      The media & cultural elite mock religion & morality here, and actively promote amorality & irreligious behavior amongst the citizenry. One wonders, everything else aside, how can the West survive when those on top have turned against it? In the past few days we’ve been witness to a sort of Grand Guignol in our State, with murders, shootouts and massive wrecks with stolen cars occurring all thru out the “Hoods” And the ‘Hood’ is spreading, with State govt housing project being built in small town & even in the remaining rural areas.

But I think people in Red States are still safe because their gov allows them to fight back if the hoods come down there starting trouble. Which is probably why they haven’t tried moving into those areas yet. Otherwise we would be hearing stories about rural America shooting back.

      Interesting!

      Is the behavior of ethnocentrism learned or innate?

      Love is built in relationships that grow in known steps. The first step is meeting someone, acquaintanceship. Step two is trust, which is developed by babies being taken cared for by their mothers, feed me, change me etc. When I cry, do something, when I know you are always there, I trust you.

      I feel that trust is given warily by everyone and does depend on how people have treated you, especially in youth. I believe this reluctance to trust people that are different is innate, as a guard against foreigners doing you badly. In a world of families and clans disseminating around the world because they are different, brother against brother, son against father, family against family, clan against clan, state against state, nation against nation, trust of one’s own type is important. We are pretty much typecast when we are adults, programmed by the environment we are raised in. That includes who we trust, who we prefer to have relationships with.

      If this is why people act the way they do, how come people cross ethnic lines? Religious teaching? Parents who raised them colorblind? School environments that were colorblind?

      How does a diverse society break down ethnic barriers? It is not by giving advantage to one group over the others. People will beg for advantage, fight for advantage, and use the advantage to the extreme. We are seeing that today around the world. The problem with using advantage is that the group using the advantage becomes dependent on the agency granting the advantage.

      When Trump was in power, all boats rose because he took away advantage and the water level rose for everyone. The gimme dependents hated him for it.

      Why do candyass “Whites” feel compelled to give advantage? IMHO, it is not out of the goodness of their hearts, it is to gain power for themselves, to advance their power goals. Power is contagious, power people can never get enough. Once their immediate power goals are fulfilled, they look for the next level to conquer. Sound familiar? Sounds like the Deep State. So about sixty years ago, the Dems looked around, LBJ in particular, and said that to get more power, the minorities were growing in percentage so phony kowtowing to the minorities started with the Civil Rights Acts and has continued to today with almost total dependence by Blacks.

      People on this blog seem to have two directions, either distrust the people who are gimmes and demand and get more and more. The other is distrust of people that are ethnocentric and successful because of it, Two that immediately come to mind are Jews and Mormons. No judgement here, just an observation.

      The Constitution is colorblind, genderblind, and religion blind. If it was followed as it is written, diversity might just work. Alas, human nature makes that impossible to do. Trust is meted out to very few by people, and again, human nature makes it do. Long term successful societies are homogeneous, people look and act alike. Diverse “empires” inevitably fail. So by the Leftists and their phony diverse reasoning pushing diversity, they are ensuring the demise of the country.

Then when she got her ass kicked by blacks, she changes her tone and slams democrat policies for failing to protect people.

        The Constitution may be, but the Founders were not. I believe Adams said it was only meant for White Europeans of the Christian religion. Of course that’s not entirely true: Many of them were free thinkers, Deists, and/or Agnostics. But in the general sense, people of Western European heritage living up to the morality that had evolved via the Christian religion in its contact/conflict with the earlier pagan religions of Western Europe.

        John AZ,
        I totally agree with you. DIVERSITY will ruin this nation. Even though we have a Constitution there are those who will ignore the rule of law to appease a minority. We see it every day!
        We need to establish a level playing field in this Country. We need to tell those whites, blacks, browns etc. if they are here for freebies, then get the hell out. If you can’t contribute to better the Country, get the hell out and go back to the shithole Country you destroyed.
        Honestly, I’m tired of babysitting the blacks who for years now haven’t learned how to act as civil contributing citizens. It’s time we make the black race responsible for their actions. We continue to look the other way and give them priority while they cause more havoc in our beautiful Country.
        The new Muslim population will be as bad or worse than the blacks. It’s in their genes.
        So, I’m sure there are people out there who say that they know many good blacks and Muslims, so do I. But that doesn’t fix the fact that we have a problem, and the good ones may be few and far between. We need more independent workers and thinkers in this Country, not more and more dependent trash wearing out those who work hard.
        We don’t have a race problem in this Country, face it, we have a problem with a couple of races in the hood!
        Take a look at Europe if you don’t believe me. Do you want to live in fear?

    “You have not begun to appreciate the real depth of our guilt. We are intruders. We are disturbers. We are subverters. We have taken your natural world, your ideals, your destiny, and played havoc with them.”- Marcus Eli Ravage, Jewish author, quote from January 1928 issue of Century Magazine

    Christianity is a universal religion? So make them prove it by taking in all the people of the world. Christ said, Go out to all nations. But they’re too dumb to remember that. Make all nations come to them. Drown them in the sludge of the 3rd World.

    Marcus Eli Ravage

    Jarek: I’m not sure you’re right about that, Marcus, not completely. No one ever spoke to the Jews like Christ did. And it did deal with the Jews far more strictly than the commercially focused Greeks and Romans did.

    But it is alien to some degree. An otherworldly religion that we had to make our own, for better or worse. One the Germanic warrior element waned, the original alien spirit came back – and then was perverted by both humanism/feminism and prometheanism.

        I like the energy creature they keep on their arms as a weapon.

        A very beautiful episode coming up: Sandoval’s Run. It explores the tender part of his psyche that lies beneath the fanatical soldier of the Taelons.

    Is the Swift – Kelce romance genuine?

    Here’s how to find out. Have Taylor demonstrate that she actually knows something about football. If she knows something it would demonstrate a genuine interest in what her man does for a living.

    Ask Taylor these questions:
    . When a team scores a touchdown how many points do they get?
    . What is the distance between goal lines stated in yards?
    . What is the width of the field stated in feet? This question introduces another element regarding Taylor’s smarts, namely how many feet in a yard?
    . How many points is a field goal worth?
    . What is a “touchback” and how many points is it worth?
    . What is a post-touchdown “conversion” worth in points? Note: there are two types of conversion. Describe them.
    . How deep are the end zones at either end of the field?
    . How do the dimensions of a high school football field differ from a pro football field?
    . When a receiver such as Kelce catches a pass near the field’s sideline how many of his feet must be “in bounds,” one or both? Is it the same or different in college football?
    . Define a football position known as “long snapper.”
    . Why are there so many Black athletes with the name Jalen?
    . Does an athlete get paid more if he has ridiculous hair, ugly tattoos, and an apostrophe in his name?

    If Taylor Swift does a good job in answering these questions it indicates her romantic interest in Travis Kelce is probably genuine.

      It would unnatural for a female to be interested in football–though she might make the effort to learn something about it for prudential reasons, if they were exceedingly weighty.

      But, generally speaking, if she were able to answer these questions, this would be an indication that she is a) not female, or b) unnatural.

    You know that the whole woke, now mostly Socialist-controlled “free world” is so far off the rails now that Vladimir Putin now appears to be the most sane, common-sense superpower leader.

    Meanwhile, in the U.S., the Democrat scum are lying like rugs trying to paint Biden as “just fine,” when even sane elementary schoolers can see that he’s a complete vegetable. Putin is correct about Bide not actually running the U.S. Worse yet, I suspect Putin knows exactly who IS running the U.S. now, while the Democrat scum voters of America are too dumb and brainwashed to figure it out.

    The whole Democrat mantra since before 2016 has been “Trump did it, “Republicans did it,” “MAGA did it” while it was the Democrat scum “doing it” and wrecking the U.S. The Democrat scum elite are pathological liars who will do or say anything to stay in power. Now that Biden is thoroughly outed as being an evil vegetable, the Democrat scum elite must get rid of him.

    The Democrats scum elite could get rid of Biden under the 25th, but that makes the Democrats look bad. They could “allow” Biden to be impeached and removed–even more embarrassing for the Democrats. They could force him to resign, but Biden might just refuse to resign–another bad look for the Democrats. Now the really scary option for the Democrat elite to do–that I no longer think is likely off the table: assassinate Biden and frame the “MAGA extremists” for it. Think of it–Biden would be gone; Harris would immediately declare Martial Law, suspend habeas corpus, “postpone” the 2024 election (forever) and begin rounding up conservatives to “send to the camps.” Even Tulsi Gabbard, former candidate for the Democrat Presidential nomination, now says that the Democrat elite are capable of doing anything, legal or not, to stay in power. Americans need to realize that the Democrat Party is now completely evil and anti-freedom.

      And the Republican Party is also, for the most part. If not by direct action then certainly by collaboration. The agenda is way way bigger than the whole blue versus red Republican versus Democrat narratives imo. I do think it is a very alien agenda actually.

      • BULLITT February 11, 2024 at 3:56 pm #

        The bottom line is the fact that there’s a lot of money and power to win or lose in this next election. It won’t be as easy to alter the outcome as it was in 2020. There will be more drastic means taken to keep the status quo for both Republicans and Democrats. We, the people will suffer.

    Meanwhile, on the West Coast, in the filthy, urine & feces stained streets of lefty utopian cities, underneath blue tarps of sidewalk encampments where hundreds of thousands of addicts & the mentally ill lead their truncated lives, cases of Bubonic Plague are emerging, spread by rats made fat as Easter hams by feeding on the bodies, dead and alive, of fentanyl & tranq Zombies. Medieval times have arrived in the USA, and with them, Medieval diseases. Bubonic Plague, like its 1348! In Portland, Seattle, SF & LA, Armies of the Living Dead haunt the streets, sidewalks, & alleys like specters from hell, carrying meningitis, polio, dysentery, AIDS & every other infectious disease known to man. More disease is arriving daily from the fetid jungles of Hondarus & the decaying cities of the Caribbean in the form of 10,000 border crossings! In Denver, NYC & Chicago ERs are swamped by ‘Migrants’ seeking (free) medical care. CFNers, have you been vaxxed … against Bubonic Plague?

    The Super Bowl will kick off with the playing of the Black National Anthem. When did 13% of the population deserve such an honor?
    Next year, the Muslim’s will be honored.
    I thought we were all equal in this USA,
    Does this bring people together?
    As a Veteran, they better not hold their finger in their ear waiting for me to watch this anti-American crap to include our sweetheart Taylor.

      “Blacks are pretty patriotic” – Beryl

      • BULLITT February 11, 2024 at 5:06 pm #

        I will agree that SOME Blacks are patriotic. I served with Black soldiers that were very patriotic and trusted them with my life. If Blacks were that patriotic, there would be things like BLM and ANTIFA. They wouldn’t such a thing as flash mobs.
        BTW…for you people who believe in the 2nd Amendment, all of your major sports organizations to include NASCAR have written the U.S. Congress for more gun control!
        These are your true Americans???
        Maybe if they spent more time cleaning their own houses, we wouldn’t need gun control.

      “The most watched event in the history of the world” is what is being said about this Superbowl lol. KC in the middle of nowhere, and a decaying SF, two cities written off decades ago and which at this point nobody cares about. I think the hype around Taylor Swift was cooked up by the NFLs PR department to generate some interest in this event which otherwise would be in the tank.

      • BackRowHeckler February 11, 2024 at 5:50 pm #

        And look for the big High School football romance to be quickly forgotten and dropped by the media as soon as the Superbowl excitement is over.

      • RUfuckingkidding? February 11, 2024 at 6:14 pm #

        Quite possibly, but look at all the CTNJ media outlets sucking it up & regurgitating it for heir loyal minions.

    • BackRowHeckler February 11, 2024 at 5:55 pm #

      What if one of the few White players ‘takes a knee’ during the Black National Anthem? I say the sh#t would hit the fan, no?

      • RD3 February 11, 2024 at 11:03 pm #

        Why was the “Trans Community” so under represented in the Super Bowl? Seems like a hate crime to me.

        • RD3 February 11, 2024 at 11:05 pm #

          Shouldn’t each team have had at least four or five trannies? Where were the Asians? Why wasn’t there at least one female quarterback?

      Honor?
      That was one of the worst sounding songs I have ever heard even worse than when tone deaf can’t sing at all Roseanne Barr defecated on the national anthem by screeching it out.

    Over/Under was 47 – the final 47 (22+25)

    JFC do the Vegas Boyz know their business! The house took everything. Bet the Over, lose everything – bet the Under, lose everything.

    A lot of purple throughout the production. Just sayin’…

    • SoftStarLight February 12, 2024 at 12:19 am #

      Ok so that explains what that means. Good thing I told you not to listen to me lol. So what do you make of the purple?

      • SoftStarLight February 12, 2024 at 12:23 am #

        Apparently the proposal didn’t happen so I did get that one right. Where do I collect my winnings 🙂

        • Ron Anselmo February 12, 2024 at 12:34 am #

          You’ll have to:

          1) Meet me in the ether.
          2) Send an address.

          Ladie’s choice.

      • Ron Anselmo February 12, 2024 at 12:47 am #

        Dreamy, not sure what to make of the purple.

        Symbolism is always important and deliberate, but from whom, to whom and for what reason is hard to sort out. You need to look very, very closely to see the unseen. You already know that.

        Short answer? I’m not sure – purple is almost always royalty-related, but who are the royalty – the rulers? Not me. As Lorde says – I crave a different kind of buzz.
