Father of Our Country

“If cocaine is so prevalent in the West Wing that there is somehow ‘extra’ cocaine just laying around, when is the White House going to start drug testing its employees?” — Margot Cleveland

     Consider for a moment, and be grateful for, how perfect “Joe Biden” is as president of this foundering republic. He and his family project the rectified essence of every depravity now driving the life of our nation to some murky bottom, where it may be forced to assess its sorry state, repent, and perhaps recover (or just give up and die). There he stands, without ambiguity or conscience: “Joe Biden,” the personification of a failed state.

     As a criminal enterprise, for instance, the Biden family influence-peddling operation among foreign powers reflects exactly the racketeering character of corporate America today — which is to say, making money dishonestly, and often for doing nothing. In America’s biggest industry, finance, this is absolutely the case. You may have forgotten what finance is, and what it’s supposed to do: namely, to lend money for activities intended to produce things of value, useful things that people need and want, sometimes even public works that benefit everyone in society.

     American Finance now is in the business of receiving free money (loans at minimal interest) from government-chartered central banks (issuing “credit” from nowhere), that banks, hedge funds, private equity outfits, and sundry freebooters can roll into instruments such as interest-yielding bonds (loans back to government) and derivatives (algorithmic bets derived, abstracted from, and tuned to market movements) magically multiplying money that finally produces nothing of value — though it may translate into yacht purchases, alimony payments, luxury suites at ballparks, private Caribbean islands, and traffic in humans for use as sex toys.

     The Biden business model also applies nicely to medicine and higher education, two endeavors saturated in prestige and pomp, like the doings in the White House, but which, similarly to that hotbed of policy and action, in the case of medicine, produces shocking amounts of unnecessary death (est. 251,000 a year from iatrogenic treatment errors), and in the case of higher ed, the production of specious and harmful Big Ideas — while both endeavors expand like turbo-tumors within the dying body of an expiring manufacturing economy.

     As in the Biden model, dishonesty is now the keystone in both “Meds” and “Eds.” Our public health officialdom hasn’t stopped lying about the Covid-19 episode since it began, and in every aspect from the origin of the disease (if that’s even what it was), to the deaths statistically attributed to it, to everything about the “vaccines” cooked up to stop it. In turn, those officials coerced America’s doctors into withholding the best treatments (ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine) while applying deadly protocols (remdesivir plus intubation) guaranteed to kill hospital patients — which the government then rewarded with gargantuan bonus payments.

     Higher ed has now turned its energies from learning to political activism, meaning the performance of morality preening stunts for acquiring status under the pretense of addressing social problems that boil down to bad behavioral choices and mental illness. Higher ed is now in the business of generating more of both those things in the form of manufactured racial antagonism and sexual torment (in partnership with the medical establishment). All fields of study in college are now racialized and genderized, and all at the expense of organized knowledge, which gets burdened with fatuous theory and spurious crypto-religious missions. The price of admission to this carnival of fakery multiplies at a faster rate than the generalized annual dollar inflation, abetted by federal loan guarantees that “Joe Biden,” in his munificence, seeks to abridge with a jubilee for student debt.

     Of course, it’s the fantastic psychodrama within the Biden family that presents the most arresting model for America. “Joe Biden” tells us over and over that he loves his son, who he calls “the smartest man I know.” A father’s love is a wonderful thing, for sure. And yet, is there anything that Hunter Biden has not done to destroy “the Big Guy,” short of, say, driving a number nine knitting needle ear-to-ear through the old man’s skull?

     Look at what Hunter has loosed on his loving dad: a photo archive of amateur pornography (including sex acts with children), drug crime, and bribery deal memos so vast and clear-cut that a first-year law student could write them up into a federal criminal case and / or a bill of impeachment. Hunter went and got a pole-dancer pregnant and lately tried to weasel out of paying to support the daughter he refused to acknowledge until DNA testing pinned it on him. He only just wriggled out of tax evasion and handgun charges due to his father enlisting the US DOJ as a private protection service, thus befouling the agency and destroying the public’s trust in it. Now Hunter’s suspected of leaving a bag of cocaine in a West Wing cubby, where White House security was sure to find it.

     What we’re witnessing is an order of magnitude greater than Greek tragedy: the implacable drive to destroy not just the father, who happens (by the sheerest electoral subterfuge) to be president, but to take down the nation with him. And it’s working. The Biden family is crashing into smoldering wreckage, and so is the USA — as acted out in the sad-sack nation of Ukraine, a festering hub of Biden family moneygrubbing going back more than a decade, now being needlessly sacrificed as part of a massive criminal cover-up, with America’s geopolitical prestige on-the-line.

     I know, the complexity of this melodrama is overwhelming. How can one bumbling political idiot wreak so much havoc? It’s a wonder, all right. But it’s all playing-out before us in real time. “Joe Biden” — who (let’s face it) is only partly there — Hunter, brother Jim, and the rest of this sorry clan are all going down. We won’t miss them, when they’re gone. Everything about them is ignoble, which you can’t exactly say about our country itself. One way or another, they will be thrown overboard, and then we’ll see if we can get this ship righted and under sail again.

In April, 2023, Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) Kathie Breault was indicted in the Eastern States District Federal Court for “Conspiracy to Defraud the United States” for giving vaccination cards to people who did not receive Covid-19 vaccinations. Her defense is that the vaccinations were ineffective and harmful, and to administer them would violate the Hippocratic oath of health professionals (First do no harm). Her legal battle against a dishonest and vindictive federal government will require lawyer’s fees that exceed her ability to pay — a reminder that “the process is the punishment.”

Kathie has also been accused of “professional misconduct” by the New York State Licensing Board for prescribing Ivermectin via telehealth visits in July 2021. Many other medical practitioners across the United States have been similarly persecuted and some have lost their licenses to practice. Kathie has been under investigation by New York’s Office of Professional Discipline since March 2022. No decision has been reached as of May 2023.

            It was a literary choice. Has a nice ring to it … alliteration … Number Nine Nitting Needle! The Beatles “Revolution Number Nine”.

            Some patriots I know suggest that the best thing we can do is to vote for the worst possible candidate – seeing no other way out than starting from scratch. The best thing being to let it collapse asap in order to have more resources and basic infrastructure left over for a fresh start. From this perspective, Hunter is one of us, working hard to bring it all down!

          Just who IS running the country? I was leaning towards Hillary, but after the French riots were amplified in social media like they were in Cairo and Kiev, I’m now going with Obama. It seems the Brandon Administration, whoever they are, had to let Macron see what could happen if you go off the empire reservation with China.

            I think it’s Victoria Nuland… the fat ugly kid who was bullied in school. She is Ukrainian, and has a huge chip on shoulder. She is a person with money and connections that would enable her to do anything – and her choice is to form a “think tank” for the “study of war”. But how would one study war, without wars to study? Look into her eyes … This fuker Loves War!

            My bet is on Barak Obama. Biden’s false Presidency is Obama’s 3rd term. When Michelle Obama gets the Democrat nomination that will be BO’s 4th term followed by a 5th. From there the transformation will be complete and the American people will still be sitting on their obese asses stuffing their pasty white faces with donuts and potato chips watching their favorite show about serial killers on their favorite cable network.

            My what a foolish, stupid and gullible breed we are.

          • MaryQueen July 7, 2023 at 4:06 pm #

            I think Obama made Hillary his bitch in the heirarchy, and that’s why she’s been such a miserable drunk these past few years, and being thrown crumbs like teaching Harvard classes, etc.

            When his star rose, hers started descending.

            He’s the boss. I have mentioned before reading that he is a ‘successor’ of sorts for Soros. I am guessing Soros’ psychotic son just doesn’t have the charisma or connections.

            I would tend to agree, given that Obama seems to be a billionaire at this point, with no visible means of having earned it.

            Obama bought into the ground level of the Blood & Gore carbon credit scheme.

            Obama is, Hillary was supposed to get her shot, but they underestimated Trump.
            So she was tainted because of Russia gate, so they put in the “ventriloquist dummy” and didn’t underestimate Trump the next time.
            This time, it’s a toss up between Gavin, Donald, and Robert. Place your bets!

          Tyin’ up our tomatoes with needles, not stakes,

      How can one bumbling political idiot wreak so much havoc? That is the point. Or, at least one big one. The one bumbling idiot is certainly an idiot and always has been and I would add the moniker “idiot” to the ones who elected him. Someone else is pulling the strings and causing the collapse of the country.

      • Beryl of Oyl July 7, 2023 at 11:27 am #

        That’s why we had a Constitution, so one bumbling idiot couldn’t.

        When we don’t do anything about it when these people flout or Constitution and our laws, it continues.

        Why isn’t Biden impeached for unconstitutional censorship by the government?

        Why isn’t Jen Psaki on trial?

        Not only is such censorship contrary to our Constitution, it is against the law.

          pyrrhus, Agent Orange (also a nickname for The Donald) would be no surprise, given their state of mind.

          A feeble attempt to justify deployment of cluster bombs: “The Pentagon will provide munitions that have a reduced ‘dud rate’, meaning there will be far fewer unexploded rounds that can result in unintended civilian deaths.”

          No mention of “…intended civilian deaths”.

          This bright news report also points the finger at the Russians. “They’re doing it so we should too.”

        Firstly, he convinced America’s southern boarder to transition itself into an open gate. Then he invited every third world unemployed, illiterate, non-English speaking person to walk right in. Quote:

        “Let me put it another way. We could afford to take in a heartbeat another two million. The idea that a country of 330 million cannot afford people, who are in desperate need and who are justifiably weak, and fleeing depression is absolutely bizarre,” Biden said.

        Lastly, remember that these non-English speaking, non-skilled people only know Americas culture through Tick Tock and Instagram.

        Bizarre indeed.

        • Beryl of Oyl July 7, 2023 at 12:44 pm #

          Speaking of non-skilled people, it is bending the truth to say that the White House was built by slaves. It should be obvious that there had to be Europeans involved when you see that kind of skilled work, and there were.

          The open border is for child sex-trafficking.

          Don’t believe me? Look at who used to come over the border: working-age men who got jobs and sent remittances back to Mexico to support their wives, children, and aging parents. Nowadays, the migrant stream is CHILDREN unaccompanied by parents, accompanied only by their traffickers.

          Which perfectly suits the pedophiles who hold the top positions in government, media, Big Tech, banking, corporations, and Hollywood.

          When diesel fuel gets very scarce and is rationed (the US has very little heavy crude left for making diesel) – then agriculture in the USA will revert back to the way it was in the 1800’s. You will need millions of field workers to bring in crops that were once produced using a lot of heavy and complex machines. Once the giant cotton pickin’ machines are parked due to no spare parts or no diesel, then we’ll be back to picking it by hand. Many of these immigrants coming in are still capable of doing field work.

          Most of the “soft people” who’ve lived in the USA for a long time couldn’t do this work. They’d just collapse and die in the fields. They’d need at least a year or two of hard training. It would be something like being in a military boot camp to get them ready for the physical and mental challenges involved in spending months on end picking cotton or using hoes for cultivating crops in the hot sun.

          • Paula D July 8, 2023 at 2:07 pm #

            You don’t pick cotton for months. When those cotton balls get rotten, you cain’t pick very much cotton, as the song tells us.
            You have a limited time to harvest and it’s balls to the wall (so to speak.)

            Same with other crops. When they are ripe, you have to pick them before they get rotten.

            So it’s basically a matter of enough people. Get enough people out there and you can succeed. Many hands make light work, and all.

            Bio diesel solves this problem. It burns cleaner and is the very definition of a renewable resource. Why is this never mentioned? One acre of rapseed oil trees can produce enough biodiesel to power the machinery for a 100 acre farm for 1 year…

          Maybe he’s a drooling pudding eater now, but let’s not forget how he got on the short list of presidential contenders in the first place. Biden is an evil, self-serving, narcissistic, pig of a man with decades of misdeeds to answer for. No offense to pigs. And that is how he maneuvered himself into this position. God obviously has the final say on how Biden will be judged for the sum total of his life on this planet.

        In the context of our current situation. Remember just a few years ago when our leaders told us we were all going to die from Covid?

        We were reminded on a daily basis by the Gov of New York that we were all on board the doom train. To make his point, he put all the demonstrably weak and infirm together with those that were infected. We all remember the results.

        Those people with no heaven to go to needed something. The mask was their only talisman. Their mask was their cross. Remember, they were out of their minds with fear.

        The effect of 3 years of stress and fear have taken their toll. Those that went with their talismans have serious mental issues. 3 years of terror, in their own minds. The damage is done.

        • Heartlander July 7, 2023 at 4:07 pm #

          It wasn’t just those who don’t believe in heaven. A depressing number of CHRISTIANS got caught in the psy-op, even to the extent of lining up for the jabs. (How did any Christian not have enough spiritual discernment to be suspicious of the “protection” being recommended by Fauci, an obvious psychopath, and by the Gates/Soros/Schwab trio, who have spent their entire adult lives ranting against overpopulation and arguing to get rid of excess human beings?)

          If Christians couldn’t even resist the Covid jabs, what the heck are they going to do when the going gets REALLY rough? It’s unnerving for me, since I no longer feel like I can just trust that all us Christians will stand together, united against our foes.

          Of course, one can hope that some people have had a hard awakening and have learned their lesson. We can hope that getting burned has “inoculated” them against the next big psy-op.

          • farmgal July 7, 2023 at 5:24 pm #

            Great point Heartlander. When the antichrist pays us a visit will these Christians be hiding behind doors or lining up for favored status. One does wonder.

            Boy, you would hope. Don’t hold your breath. Christian or not, you’ve got to possess critical thinking skills. Being a Christian obviously doesn’t guarantee that you do. I’ve watched the “dumbing down” of America for 6 decades and realized that you have to be mentally strong to withstand the onslaught of BS. Most don’t have it, all by design.

            Some churches actually came out in favor of the vaccines–though I only know definitely of one, which was the RLDS Church, which has a large presence in this area, and which I think is pretty much local to the Kansas City area, being centered in Independence, Missouri. The members of the RLDS Church (at least the ones I know) were horrified by their church’s position on this. (Members tend not to be dummies.)

            Iwas disgusted by the Catholic Church’s failure to take a stand on church closings and restrictions. The Church’s authorities are not dummies. I think it is fair to assume that they were fully aware the whole thing was a hoax. The decision to go along with church closings and other restrictions on the churches was made by the bishops heading up the various dioceses. (Otherwise, I would be pissed at the parish priests.) I think that, at one level, the churches feared that a staunch refusal to go along with covid measures would have angered many of their congregants. Old people, in particular, were terrified of covid, which, as an old person myself, really irritates me. But it could be that the Church feared a serious schism, if they had stood their ground. Nevertheless, I would say that it was spineless not to.

            One of the big “tells” that covid and all things related was a hoax was the abrogation of civil liberties. It was pretty obvious that the abrogation of civil liberties was the actual purpose of creating so much hysteria.

      Over the course of its history “homo sapiens” has invented hundreds of diabolical ways to kill each other. But few descend to the level of the cluster bombs the US of A is now sending to the Nazi Sons of Bandera. Apparently for no other reason than that Ukraine has used up all the other 155mm shells that fit the artillery supplied by the US of A.

      Cluster bombs are outlawed by almost all the countries on the planet that still pretend to have a vestige of civilization, including the USA. Their only purpose is to seed the targeted area with death, and maim and kill children playing there for generations in the future.

      The only place where the deployment of such diabolical devices might be morally justifiable is the US Senate and House who authorized their use, or perhaps the White House Rose Garden and East Wing.

          • Paula D July 8, 2023 at 2:12 pm #

            Apparently, the Ukies were told to drop the ZNPP false flag.

            According to USA Today:
            ? Ukraine has taken measures to prevent a Russian attack on the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant and “the danger of an artificial technogenic catastrophe is quietly going down,” Ukrainian intelligence chief Kyrylo Budanov told The Times of London. President Volodymyr Zelensky had warned of the possibility of such an attack earlier in the week.”

            So Ukraine ”has taken measures” to stop the Russians from blowing up the NPP that they are occupying, in the midst of (now) Russian territory.

            Sweet trick. But it has the added value of protecting Russians and Russian land from being contaminated.

            Good thing the UKies stopped them!

          • ThorsHammer July 8, 2023 at 5:29 pm #

            Things are getting desperate in USNATO land. They’ve used up all the false flag “calls to action” that don’t have a nuclear warhead mounted on their nose. Joke drone attacks on Moscow that leave smoky stains on apartment buildings. Blowing up the dam that supplied cooling water to Europe’s largest nuclear power plant. Antique “modern battle tanks” from the storage yards of European “allies”. Patriot missile defense batteries that are destroyed as soon as they are unloaded from a Polish train. Even engaging in an act of war against Germany by blowing up their undersea energy lifeline.

            The RF destroyed the plan of the CIA/ Banderistas to turn the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant into a dirty bomb by publicizing Ukraine’s plans so widely that they could no longer serve as a false flag.

            The attempt to supply F 16’s to Ukraine is floundering on reality and is the last card in the deck. It is a flying antique, designed 40 years ago. Software upgrades have brought a plane designed for Maverick to dogfight with into a semi-modern fighter jet, but it is no match for any of the generations of Russian and American warbirds that have followed. And the versions sold to allies are not even updated to current software. Their main function is to recycle Dollars back into the US pool of debt.

            The design problem with the F 16 is more fundamental. Russian fighter aircraft were designed to fight in a real war and under real conditions. The SU 27 contemporaries of the F 16 are twin engined, with air intakes alongside the fuselage and provision for closing off underbelly intakes during takeoff. This allows them to operate from highways, unimproved runaways, even grass strips. By contrast the F 16 is a single engine design that pulls all its air in low near the runaway. It can only operate from a runway that is meticulously swept clean of every pebble and stick. Failure to do so results in destruction of the engine.

            If Slow Joe authorized the deployment of 100 generation V American F 16’s to Ukraine tomorrow, Russia would destroy every runaway in the Ukraine capable of accommodating them before the F 16’s could be delivered. They would be flown by USAF pilots or perhaps a handful of British or Polish pilots who are already trained for their systems. If they ever enter combat they will fly from Polish airfields, and the RF would find it nearly impossible to not respond.

            WWIII started when the US launched the Sanctions War in a vain attempt to destroy the Russian economy. It will only end with defeat like in Afghanistan or Vietnam, or nuclear suicide.

      erik, there needn’t be any historical precedent for this nation because history isn’t physics. It is the story of what was, not of what must be. We can learn from history, or not, but it does not control outcomes.

      There was no historical precedent for the USA in the first place, but it still happened.

      I agree, we are collapsing, but as for what comes after, anything can happen.

        Major events in history are like ripples in a pond when a pebble is dropped into. Those events progress outward through time affecting everything and everyone they come in contact with. We are here because of what others have done in the past and what we do in the present will effect what happens in the future.

        I think much of the American traditions of personal freedom, etc., can be explained by the fact that the whole North American continent had such a huge land area, which was ripe for both exploitation and settlemnt. The PTB of that time recognized that there was an urgent need for settlement, if they were to retain political control of such a huge landmass. Thus, “free” land, or what was essentially “free” land, was made available, and most of it was, for all practical purposes, beyond the reach of the State for a very long time.

        Americans enjoyed a relatively long history of freedom–the kind of freedom that results from maximum ownership of land by the people and minimal state intervention into private affairs. Both Nock and Henry George felt that economic freedom rests primarily on land ownership. I think it was the national experience of real freedom–both relative economic freedom and freedom from the intrusion of a centralized State–that shaped the national consciousness.

        • The Man They Call Zazelle July 9, 2023 at 1:35 pm #

        That’s a given. Western and asian populations are all declining as they aren’t having babies to replace themselves anymore. Demographic winter is upon us, especially as the Baby Boomers age and die off in large numbers.

        We are seeing a shift in the racial structure of the world. Blacks, whites, brown and yellows are interbreeding creating a mongrel brown skin, dark haired brown eyed super race. I rarely see blonde haired people any more and the ones I do see all have dark haired roots. These people are going to inherit the world from the rest of us because, in our self centered minds, we failed to produce children to replace us. Well, I didn’t, I have four, but many others didn’t have any.

        • FGB3 July 7, 2023 at 3:55 pm #

          Is it always “racist” to observe that racial groups tend to want to associate with their own ethnicity? I don’t think so. I know it’s crass to remind some folks that human beings are still, afterall, animals, on at least one level.

          And in the animal world like attracts like. And to get closer to the thesis here, our nearest animal relatives, the Chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes), always associate with other chimpanzees. I won’t even go into how ants behave towards “others”.

          I am focusing on Jarek’s phrase, ‘in our present configuration’, wondering if by that he meant that in the long run America will re-organize into various regions, and those regions will be, primarily homogeneous as to race.

          The problem France is having right now stems from a very heterogeneous population. France was, over the past century, a magnet for the various ethnicities from their overseas colonies. But that wasn’t too much of a problem as they spoke French, were used to French culture and laws, etc.

          But in recent times, France has, along with other European countries, “virtue signaled” to the high heavens, admitting any warm body from anywhere. And these refugees/”immigrants” do not speak French, or have French culture (which includes religion), and so on. They have not tried to be assimilated into the French way of life.

          Just as “good fences make good neighbors”, human beings need to have national boundaries, unless they want to be torn apart in time. Which is precisely what George Soros knows and why he promoted his Open Borders policy. He hates the Western democracies and seeks to destroy Europe (and America), so that, by divide and conquer, he and his buddies in the W.E.F./Davos crowd can take over the World.

          • farmgal July 7, 2023 at 5:42 pm #

            Yes, to all of the above. America will fall but into what? I’m not predicting all White enclaves only hoping for them. Americans are too far gone to actually insist on such things I’m afraid. They’ll be virtue signaling even late into the collapse. Hopefully actual hunger and fear of marauders will close the gates to everybody – including non-Whites. And since some areas are still largely White, perhaps they’ll be saved by the bell.

      • mrs_saj July 7, 2023 at 2:33 pm #

        Islander,

        These are great examples and I thank you for sharing them. I am not sure about Jarek’s purity of blood comment. For Japan, yes, that would be the case, but It is perhaps more complicated in your examples 1-6. Although his point is well taken in that there is more homogeneity in the bloodlines of these examples than there is the United States.

        What I found interesting though is the timeline for national renewal. I think the US is in the process of “collapsing”. I don’t pretend to know what it will actually look like. But once the “collapse” had reached its nadir, only then can the renewal commence. And most of these renewals, which are real, took quite a long time to occur.

        • Cankerpuss July 7, 2023 at 3:44 pm #

            The aftermath of the next turning will be favorable. However *during* the next turning in the West, things could get more ghastly and horrific than even WWII. A lot of people will have to exit this world in order to create a new civilization based on reality instead of toxic dreams and madness.

        • SpeedyBB July 8, 2023 at 12:59 am #

          Having lived, studied, worked, loved in Japan a total of eight years since 1962 I am quite curious as to whether their deep, innate and stubborn xenophobia – competing with the Koreans as the most-foreigner-detesting nation in the world – will inevitably be worn down by the inevitable influx of Filipinos, Iranians, Thais and others willing to do the “3K” work: kitsui, kitanai, kiken (strenuous, dirty, dangerous).

          Westerners are finally being admitted, albeit grudgingly, into the white-collar work force – but they better have mastered written Japanese. They will undoubtedly hit a glass ceiling after a couple of years. Everyone expects it.

          I’ve marveled at the naked racism, unabashed Japan-for-the-Japanese attitudes since I learned the language and experienced the work culture. Even young kids who have gone to international school with fathers stationed in Japanese corporations abroad are scorned and bullied upon returning to their home country: “You’re no longer a real Japanese. You smell like a subhuman ijin.”

          “The number of foreigners working in Japan has reached a new high of more than 1.8 million in 2022. After years of slow growth in the number of foreign workers admitted into the country, Japan has increased its efforts to attract them in the past couple of years. Since the Japanese population is aging rapidly, the Japanese government is feeling the need to bring in talent from abroad.”

          But boy, they sure resent it. Even Okinawans and Hokkaido natives feel discrimination when trying to fit into a new work environment in Tokyo or Osaka.

          They have no real choice: at a 1.3 replacement rate the pure Nipponese race looks truly doomed.

          Much of that derives from the new economic independence of women. They can become engineers, pilots, IT experts, senior managers. Why in the world would they want to marry? One look at their own parents is enough to cure that notion.

          Younger Japanese are astonishingly uninterested in sex – particularly the men. I’ve witnessed that at first hand. Visiting a 25-ish Nigerian student in an Osaka dorm, I listened to his sad story: “They won’t leave me alone. How can I get any study done when these good-looking women with money keep phoning me and inviting me out. I get so much sex here that I’m exhausted all the time.”

          I advise him: “The local people are fully aware of this. They say ‘Once a girl gets a taste of a foreign man she’s no good any more for a Japanese’.”

          • Islander July 8, 2023 at 7:24 am #

            Very interesting comments.

            Not questioning your observations, but it doesn’t seem to parse that the Japanese are xenophobic plus guys not interested in sex. They must study biology . . . Do you think there is a connection between the xenophobia and the low libido?

            Do Japanese women not want to become mothers?

            Regarding the race xenophobia, the idea of racial purity has been a guiding idea for many groups, whether or not they were able to maintain it in reality. It is often an effective way to enforce social control. It also may well underpin many images of ideal beauty held by different cultures. And, I do think all cultures have a beauty ideal, which helps drive mate selection and hence DIY eugenics.

            Plus, smell is important in mate selection, but mainly, I believe, at the unconscious level. Years ago I read a whole lot about pheromones, but I can’t recall the scientific details.

          • Jarek July 8, 2023 at 1:13 pm #

            Jared Taylor of American Renaissance wrote about a book about all this. He grew up there and is fluent. He relates the story of an exchange student who was told: We loved having you. You’re almost like a daughter. Please don’t use your knowledge of our language and culture to get a Japanese boy. We would view that as a betrayal.

            Their demons seem to have gotten the best of them, alas. Being xenophobic is a key element of survival, but so is a sex drive. They seem to have exhausted themselves with the corporate death cult. After work, you are expected to go out drinking, staggering home for a few hours of sleep, and then doing the same the next day. Executives dying of heart attacks on the trains was a common occurrence. Family life suffered terribly.

            So the younger generation of men reacted against it, taking refuge in the elaborate pop culture, comprised of both Western and Japanese elements. They already had their own strong degenerate traditions in any case.

            Let’s face it, they should have listened to Mishima. He saw what they were becoming and tried to stop it.

            Shame on you for not learning from them, both from their strengths and from their weaknesses; what to do and what no to do.

            And yes, the healthy elements of Japanese manhood are hard pressed, since Feminism is powerful there now too. Farmers are marrying healthy, wholesome Filipinas – an inferior race like all Southeast Asians by traditional lights (and also by IQ tests).

          • Jarek July 8, 2023 at 1:17 pm #

            Yeah Islander, just import ten million Nigerians into Japan, along with an intensive Japanese language program. Problem solved.

            This is the mentality. Everyone is intrinsically the same. The Japanese don’t believe that. They are still sane in this regard.

            The Chinese are making an effort to unite all East Asians into a prosperity sphere. This may be the best solution. Follow China! You cannot be White and you don’t want to be Black. You can rule the world as what you are. Hail Victory!

It is as though she was marrying a chimpanzee.”

      • Anthea July 9, 2023 at 12:26 pm #

        @ Heartlander:

        I too have a suspicion that our government is destroying the US with the intention of offering it up to the Chinese, though I don’t know how this wil be done. The government could initiate a “pretend” war, which it will duly lose, as planned and intended. Or they might simply allow the Chinese to flood into the country. Or the government might cede or sell vast areas of the US landmass to the Chinese in settlement of the national debt.

        My thinking is, should this play out, that the Chinese will only control certain parts of the US. One of these will be California and the rest of the west coast. I suppose I have an instinctive revulsion for the East Coast, which makes me think that no one would want it. Seems to me that it’s mostly just a big money sink–low on resources and high in population, with a massive and costly infrastructure.

        Anyway, the actual crux of this comment is the observation that, as far as I can observe, very few people here in the heartland have suffered from any ill effects from the covid vaccines. According to Catherine Austin Fitts, some areas seem to have been targeted for high levels of vaccine damage and deaths, while in other areas, innocuous versions of the vaccines were administered–or even saline. It appears to me that portions of the Midwest were spared. Maybe all of the Midwest. What this suggests to me is that, whoever will control the US after the coming collapse, they are people who would like to eat. Thus (IMHO), many of the large food-producing regions seem to have been spared, along with the populations capable of food production. It may also be that Midwesterners are pretty heavily armed, and the conquest of the region by overt means is simply more trouble than it’s worth.

    Great article as always, Jim.

    Biden is purposely sinking America because his overlords, including Schwab and Xi, want it sunk. He’ll do whatever he’s told because of his idiotic desire to be seen as Savior of America by turning us into paupers and serfs dependent on the Democrat Party for life itself. It’s evil, but between Biden’s arrogance, senility, and native stupidity, he thinks it’s good — and because the opposite of his policies is associated with Trump, anything other than Bidenism is called “satanic” by half the country, including almost all of our propagandists/newspeople.

    To answer the question in your introduction, when I started my current job I was told there was a USSC opinion that drug testing can be applied to everyone BUT government employees because a part of the Constitution prohibits state and federal employees from invasion of privacy, whereas non-government employees can be compelled to pee in a cup. So, the answer is, never.

      • FGB3 July 7, 2023 at 4:08 pm #

        International Man: What exactly is the Deep State?

        Doug Casey: All countries have a Deep State. The Deep State are people who control and profit from the State. In the US, its top-level might include several thousand individuals. Heads of agencies, top congressmen and senators, generals, top corporate people, bankers, top university presidents and professors, top state and big city officials, and the like. They equate to what were called the Nomenklatura in the Soviet Union. They pull all the strings, have immense power, and have huge amounts of money flowing into their personal pockets. We can call them “top dogs.”

        Underneath them, in the Deep State, we have several million people that are equivalent to the apparatchiks of the old Soviet Union. They’re middle managers under the top dogs. They have good positions and get to give a lot of orders. They’re low-level big shots. I like to call them “running dogs.”

        The many millions who accept these people, the masses who slavishly support the Deep State out of fear or habit, I call “whipped dogs.” They’re strictly pawns in the game. They’re thoughtless and delusional enough, thanks to schooling and propaganda, to believe they’re in control of a so-called “democracy.” Even though they’re 98% of the population, they don’t count unless they go wild due to a serious war, depression, or other catastrophe.

        The people in the Deep State deny their own existence. And nobody has a membership card or an official decoder ring. But the Nomenklatura, and a lot of the apparatchiks, went to the same schools, belong to the same clubs, and have the same philosophy and worldview. They all live off the State, which in turn lives off the 98%, the whipped dogs.

      But now the blinders are off. The Left is not innocently stupid; they are criminally evil. Their tolerance of, excuses for, and outright promotion of CHILD ABUSE show their true colors. From forcing masks on children, to injecting them twith poison that damages their hearts and leaves them sterile, to selling “pride” and “trans” clothing to 2-year-olds, to opening up the border for the sex-trafficking of millions of children….

      • Islander July 7, 2023 at 11:00 am #

        My earlier comment:

        Hunter was deeply damaged by *something*.
        His dad?
        They really are a pair.

        Like toxic married couples who enable each other.

        Jill Biden must have been brain-dead to marry into this incestuous moral cesspool.

        • hmuller July 7, 2023 at 11:08 am #

          His mother and baby sister were killed in a car crash when he and his brother were critically injured.

          I wonder if he ever got some kind of counseling. They didn’t do as much of that then.

          His brother appeared to have come out of that okay, but people are different.

          • mrs_saj July 7, 2023 at 11:53 am #

            Beryl,

            Just did a simple search.

            The Bidens’ sons, Beau and Hunter, were also in the car and survived with serious injuries. At the time, Beau was 4 years old and suffered multiple broken bones, while Hunter, who was 3, had a fractured skull.

            I have no idea if either of the boys received counseling (grief or trauma or any type), but I think its interesting that Hunter had a head injury from the crash. He was also the younger of the two. I think where you are sitting in the car, relative to the collision, comes into play certainly, as well.

            If you have dealt with a brain injured person before, you would recognize the symptoms that Hunter shows.

            Lack of executive functioning, “common sense” and lack of restraint are a big two.

        • Jarek July 7, 2023 at 12:36 pm #

        I suspect he is driven subconsiously to destroy his father. Given his father’s predilections, he probably suffered a certain traumatizing interference as a child.

          I saw an old picture of Biden visiting his sons in the hospital with both of these young boys in casts, on IVs and looking terrified. Joe had a full camera crew there and was smiling is oily smile. He used them for a photo op.

          I believe he loves his kids but he’s a true narcissist who can’t see outside himself and uses people (even his own injured children) to further his ambition. He’s been caught in numerous lies but never admits it directly.

          Well we know the daughter was subjected to showers with daddy at an inappropriate age. Also that he’s an obvious pedo.

      • farmgal July 7, 2023 at 5:53 pm #

        Hmuller you are so spot on. I have thought from the beginning that Hunter was out for Daddys blood. He has left a trail a mile wide. The problem seems to be that between the DOJ and FBI we are so corrupt even the application of 2×4 to the head isn’t enough to bring about justice. Hunter is a deeply disturbed individual.

        • Woodchuck July 8, 2023 at 10:35 am #

          Bringing justice will require thick and very hard hickory mattock handles. Lightweight and punky pine 2×4’s can’t do the job properly.

          As our man with no name did in the movie “Pale Rider”. Some guys with matches showed up to cause trouble. It ends with our man saying “there’s nothing like a nice piece of hickory”.

    So, I recently returned home from one of those epic American road trips of yore, clocking in over 3,100 driving miles from start to finish. Amazingly, after tallying up my gas receipts, the total came in at only $375.74. Gas prices averaged anywhere from $3.12 to $3.60/gallon, between the Midwest and the Colorado Rockies. I would consider this a bargain, as opposed to flying, having the freedom to move about the country and stop/go where I wanted as I pleased.

    Glad I was able to get this trip in. There is no telling when they will pull the plug and such adventures will no longer be feasible.

    That bag of coke reminds me of the January 6 pipe bombs in some manner.

    That, along with the sudden emphasis on how poorly Joe Biden treats his granddaughter are just too coincidental.

    At first I thought it might be to make Joe an object of sympathy, the coke, as in that poor guy an his addict son dragging him down.

    But the renewed emphasis on the girl, after all this time, it may just be preparation for the narrative of “well, we finally got rid of that Biden family, weren’t they awful people, they caused all kinds of trouble over there in Ukraine too, but now that they are gone it is all better with the Democrats”.

    The quote by Margot Cleveland exemplifies the mindset that helps drive the US down.
    To paraphrase: “If my boss can oppress me by demanding that I urinate on command, then I respond by demanding that others also be so repressed”.
    It is the equivalent of crabs pulling each other down into the boiling water.

    And people who have been taught to squat and piss on command are easy marks when it comes to rolling up their sleeves and accepting a toxic injection, from those same bosses.

    “If I have to be part of a vast medical experiment, than I demand that others also submit”, is what it led to.

      “If cocaine is so prevalent in the West Wing that there is somehow ‘extra’ cocaine just laying around, when is the White House going to start drug testing its employees.” — Margot Cleveland

      I don’t find the quote particularly revealing of anything except poor word choice and obscrue logic.

      Does Margot actually think that the coke was left there by WH employees? Does she work in the WH? Does she know anything about the situ besides what has been reported in the MSM?

    On the Meds and Eds rackets- I have mentioned that I am reading Dr. Scott Atlas’ book. It is very slow going, because like today’s piece by Mr. Kunstler, it provokes a lot of thinking and almost feels like work to read.

    The whole book deals with medicine, but the part about the school closures, chapter 8 I think, makes some offhand remarks about the value of both elementary and higher education that are IMO very important and also carelessly brilliant.

    We see a lot of attacks on education in general, and statement like we should all go into trades instead. Dr. Atlas deftly points out the value of being in a classroom, and the value to society in general of higher education.

    There are those who want to tear down what we once had. You don’t need to bother. What we once had is already destroyed.

    Dr. Atlas’ book just confirmed for me something I had already been thinking, that there were people within that task force who were receiving orders to do what they had to do to get our kids out of the classroom and keep them out.

    We all saw Randi Weingarten actually dictate public health policy to Rochelle Walensky.

    The school closures and the masks not only had no basis in science, EVER, the recommendations coming from the task force were contrary to the real-life data that was available to them that they never bothered to look at.

    Let me say that part again- the real-life data on the effectiveness of masks in controlling the virus (it didn’t) was available to the task force even as they pushed their voodoo.

      That was what red-pilled Dr. Mike Yeadon in Britain. He had gone to college with the people in charge, they’d read the same textbooks, been instructed by the same professors… so there was no way that they could NOT know that all the measures they imposed on us were nonsensical and harmful.

      Bret Weinstein has been on a similar trajectory, as has Dr. Robert Malone. They all say the same thing: that there’s no way the “experts” did NOT know what they were doing.

      It was planned.

      It was deliberate.

            This caused me to look further; truth be told, I sense something wrong about Malone when he appeared on teh Joe Rogan show.

            Most recently I posted a link to a long piece/podcast by Tereza Coraggio, who connected the dots on Malone and excavated his actual background and history—incluidngi his history since covid. Spotty.

            So, Heartlander, I have done due diligence on Malone.

    The essential crux of the issue regarding public sentiment about the current state of the USA, is that many people cannot escape their childhood brainwashing about the true historical account.

    If one were to review the past few millenia in an objective manner, one could easily draw a continuous arc from Hastings to Cortez to Washington and now “Biden” aka neo-cons: all waypoints that measure and mark the objectives, strategies and tactics of predatory behavior.

    The primary reason citizens are upset now is that the very policies that once benefitted working class Euro immigrants have been turned against them; As I’ve long said, no one likes being the Indian.

    How does it feel, knowing you were always just a tool to further the designs of the elite? And now with overshoot, depletion and degradation quickly reaching critical inflection points, the mask is off and the brutal nature of the truth is exposed for all to see.

    But, what happens if reality is too disturbing to confront? Do you revert to denial, reverting back to childhood fantasies about freedom, democracy and the promise of a return to Eden?

    Or do you conclude the future was foretold centuries ago, that eventually a peer level force would eventually emerge to not only counter, but actually destroy the private capital model of command and control?

    • Not_GeorgeT July 7, 2023 at 11:26 am #

      Confront reality.

      Likely a huge issue for many, which, if I’m reading it correctly, you are advocating as the course of action.

      ‘Action’ is a broad stroke to include thought and reasoning.

      Denial is a form of lying to oneself. It isn’t a good idea to lie to oneself.

      Doing so is in line to be a driving force behind all this dysfuntion we are living through.

    “Finance” is a completely unnecessary and money-sucking operation that was created by the monied interests in this country to steal back the means of production from Midwestern businessmen like Henry Ford. The bankers in the Northeast couldn’t stand to see the Midwest rise in prominence and power and for them to lose their power, so they schemed up the Federal Reserve, income tax, and finance system.

        A good friend of mine is a financial advisor. He indeed makes his money from clients that show up with $1M-$10M in their portfolio. He does well from fees.

        I don’t fault him, to each his own and “money is made to be made”, but I see cracks in the model. He struggled for a while until he bought the business from his dad (meaning he took over and has to pay his dad six figures for 10 years into his retirement), but suddenly my buddy is redoing his house at ridiculous expense and buying a new BMW every year (which I must admit find slightly chagrining, considering I doubt he would “advise” any of his clients to do that with new-found money).

    ” Higher ed has now turned its energies from learning to political activism, meaning the performance of morality preening stunts for acquiring status under the pretense of addressing social problems that boil down to bad behavioral choices and mental illness. Higher ed is now in the business of generating more of both those things in the form of manufactured racial antagonism and sexual torment (in partnership with the medical establishment). All fields of study in college are now racialized and genderized, and all at the expense of organized knowledge, which gets burdened with fatuous theory and spurious crypto-religious missions.”

    I like that a lot.

    I see RFK Jr. has turned his attention to the racket that is Higher Ed, which is a good thing, acknowledging the problem of student debt that affects so many.

    The he goes all Bernie and starts talking about the government helping people afford college or something.

    He just can’t help himself.

    We had affordable alternatives to the pricy private institutions.

    They were called state colleges.

    The state schools have become invested with communists,and also serve as ATMs for the political class, as well as other sub-rackets.

    It is actions of government that created the problem. Look at what caused it, before you go trying to solve it.

    Also, Bobby does not need to be crying tears that not every boy and girl can go to a school like Harvard.

    If you are angry that somebody else has something that you can’t have, but it isn’t something you need, that is your problem.

    Bobby’s upbringing blinds him to this.

    If you look at the Dave Chapelle clip about why poor white people love Trump, you can see that he makes no apologies for growing up wealthy, and he makes no apologies for having more stuff than they have.

    If poor people come into wealth they buy stuff too.

    Never empathize with people for not having what you have, never apologize for what you were born into.

      I went to a state school, back in the 70s. With one or two exceptions, I would say that the quality of the teaching was very high–as high as possible.

      Would it be possible for a school like Harvard to provide a higher quality education? I would doubt it. (I also doubt that the teachers at Harvard were hired based on merit, and suspect that it is more likely that the teachers at my state college were hired based on merit.)

      As far as the quantity of knowledge gained, it is for the most part true that students can only learn so much in a given period of time, and there is no way to hurry this process. More intelligent kids will pick things up a bit faster, and so will kids who have a backgrough knowledge of the subject. So I suppose it is theoretically possible that a college like Harvard might be able to impart more knowledge, and impart it faster, than a state college–but that presupposes that their student population is actually more intelligent and/or has a better background-knowledge base. This actually might be true in many cases, and more commonly so than in a state college. On the other hand, it might not be true–or Harvard might have a little bit of an edge, but not much of one.

      As far as a student is concerned, if the material is being taught well by a competent teacher, there’s no reason why he/she could not learn just as much at a state college as at Harvard.

      Of course, things are different nowadays. Seems like all colleges are crap–although, now, you might actually get a better education at a rural podunk college than at Harvard.

    Things are bad on a National level, corrupt and depraved. In North Carolina things are ok. The state seems to be governed fairly well, and my neck of the woods is doing well on many levels. Sure you see signs of the rot in some of the purple haired out there and what not, but then again, things are OK.

    Rome endured a lot of psychopathic evil emperors, but things continued on in that polity for centuries. I would fathom things were OK for many of the Roman’s even though things at the national level were beyond terrible.

    Sure, things could get really bad with nukes, financial collapse, and such, but maybe they’ll just continue on for a while too. I hope so, who wants to live thru disaster and collapse? There might be some recompense if justice were done, but it would be very unpleasant to say the least.

    Do I think disaster and collapse are coming? Yes I do, but maybe not, or not for a while. Living in a decadent society is much better than living in a collapsed one.

      Disrupt the supply and things rapidly go in a bad direction. Maybe we are not there yet.

      I’m not seeing it as a distant future problem because there are too many factions trying to destroy life in the present.

      So many, in my opinion, it is easy to go on information overload.

      One strategy regarding the ‘overload’ I find useful is to pause and reflect on what is important in this life. It’s never money except for the need of an exchange tool.

      Sure, it potentially makes living more comfortable. When it leads to greed it has exceeded its usefulness as a functional tool and becomes guide on the path to demise. It might be a long path, however it eventually terminates in a dark place.

        One strategy regarding the ‘overload’ I find useful is to pause and reflect on what is important in this life. It’s never money except for the need of an exchange tool.

        Money is not important as long as you have plenty of it. If you lack enough to meet needs and reasonable desires, it becomes consuming in importance.

        Part of the value of prosperity for an individual or country is that it makes possible enough leisure to explore ideas and spirituality, rather than just scrambling to survive. And while it’s true that many, perhaps most, of the rich don’t take advantage of the opportunities their money offers for acquiring knowledge and wisdom, the principle is still valid.

        When [money] leads to greed it has exceeded its usefulness as a functional tool and becomes guide on the path to demise.

        Money is morally neutral. It doesn’t cause greed. Human psychology takes care of that. Fear, envy, one-upmanship and other character flaws are the driving forces of greed. Money is only a board game where those forces play out.

    There is scant chance the ship will be righted, but if we are operating under hypotheticals, two things that would have to be accomplished would be completely destroying the surveillance state and getting rid of 100 million to 150 million people who have arrived here in the past four decades and have often inter-married with the native population. How do you solve these two conundrums?

    Biden won’t be the nominee.

    Even though elections are indeed rigged, he’s far too unpopular, openly criminal, and vulnerable (to expiration).

    Either this is a ploy to protect Hunter (relapsed addict) or to end Joe.

      Edge Lord,

      I have posited my theory in the last few weeks on this. I, too, believe Biden will not be the nominee. It gets rid of both Joe and Kamala in one fell swoop, so it’s cleaner.

      My theory was that RFK Jr. would surge in the primary, with the behind-the-scenes help of the DNC. The DNC would of course have dirt on RFK Jr, so their new pet would be manageable. Gruesome Newsom is destroying California. Nothing he has done has worked, at all. Could he be the DNC’s chosen one? Sure, but I am theorizing a different scenario. Time will tell!

      I think you’re right. Joe Biden has become too much of a liability to the Deep State, regardless of his servility. All politicians who make it to the top of the greasy pole are spokespeople for the Powers; they won’t have any trouble replacing Joe with another lackey whose brain rot is less obvious.

      It serves to keep the people in their place. I know a young mother whose pediatrician told her that her son’s asthma wasn’t being treated aggressively enough.

      Following doctor’s orders required buying a lot of Sudafed. Then she got hassled at the new branch of the security state, the pharmacy, for buying the Sudafed too frequently.

      • MaryQueen July 7, 2023 at 8:04 pm #

        Sudafed doesn’t help asthma, it helps allergies.

      • Anthea July 8, 2023 at 10:40 am #

        Well, you can certainly see that keeping an eye on Sudafed consumption has little effect on meth cooking or consumption.

        In the town where I used to live, there was a notorious drug dealer, who probably dealt in meth (and perhaps cooked it), along with everything else. He was in business for YEARS, with the full knowledge of the cops and everyone in town. I’m guessing he was actively dealing for 10-20 years. His mother was very wealthy and was on the city council. Hence, the city cop’s chief assignment was to protect her son from being busted, and also from suffering any inconvenience in the way of competition from other local drug dealers.

        The town’s residents frequently observed the drug dealer having late-night meet-ups with the town cop. They had a business arrangement.

        Finally, late one summer night, my neighbor came running over to my house to tell me that there was gunfire on her block at the drug-dealer’s house (which was also his mom’s house). She used my phone to call 911. Our city cop arrived immediately, and by the time the county cop arrived, they had agreed on the drug-dealer’s story: Someone was messing with his truck, and he fired a few warning shots over their heads. Meanwhile, our city cop hid the drug dealer’s guns in his squad car. The county cop backed off.

        For the next two weeks, there were a number of low-flying helicopters buzzing our town. At the end of that time, the state police raided the drug-dealer’s house with a swat team. They discoverd a large quantity of drugs and quite a number of weapons stolen from Whiteman Air Force Base. The drug dealer did a year or two in prison and moved to another town nearby. Shortly afterward, our city cop stopped by my house to chat with me about how “he had been instrumental in that bust”–lest anyone get the idea that quite the reverse was true. (Everyone in town knew that anyway.)

        I have been told that the SOP in southern Missouri is that drug dealers and meth cookers can operate with impunity, as long as they pay off the cops–though I suspect there’s more to it than payoffs. No one really wants to stop the drug business. They’re all in on it and profiting from it.

        If you’d like to watch a very good movie about this, “Winter’s Bone” is excellent. It is set in one of the more remote reaches of southern Missouri. It is unrealistic only in the sense that the cops are portrayed as actually fighting the drug business, as opposed to being in on it.

        • Woodchuck July 8, 2023 at 12:25 pm #

          It was the very same situation here in hillbilly country back in the 50’s. We had real hillbilly moonshiners here. The famous Robert Mitchum movie “Thunder Road” (free on you tube) realistically portrayed the ‘shine business back in the day. Every now and then our small local newspaper would have a front page story about a still the cops had just busted. There would be a photo of the still with the smiling lawmen posing for the photo before the still was destroyed. The problem with these newspaper stories is that only half the story was being published. The local lawmen were being paid by the moonshiners to leave them alone. Whiskey makers that didn’t pay tribute to the cops were the ones most likely to be busted. When I first heard about this from some old hillbillies I didn’t believe it. In my childish imagination I assumed all cops were honest people.

        • Paula D July 8, 2023 at 2:34 pm #

          There was a famous bust here of meth cookers, because they came up with a novel way of doing it.

          Apparently, there is a smell involved in meth cooking (I forget what the smell is).
          So in order to keep their neighbors from turning them in, they decided to cook it in their car, while driving it, so the smell would not concentrate.
          Truly brilliant!

          But as they drove down the road, weaving, the smoke pouring out from the windows of their car attracted attention, and they ended up busted anyway.

          They had a baby in the car, but it was safely ensconced in a car seat, so that was responsible of them.

    Yes, you see the black people, the street dealers in the media.

    There isn’t enough money in the black community to make it lucrative to be in the coke business. Your base has to be successful white people.

    You don’t see the successful white customers on the streets, homeless, because their families can pay for private rehab if they fall too far.

    Somewhat off the topic today, but I spend a lot of time looking around the internet and in recent years, Twitter in particular, and I have noticed a couple of things lately on conservative or at least not liberal or mainstream sites.

    One, is people are seeing one of Bobby Kennedy’s speeches or interviews, because they are featured in atypical places, and I see a lot of commentary, and it is increasing exponentially, along the lines of admiration and respect for the man and what he is doing.

    Unfortunately I see that couple with, “even though I would never vote for him”.

    Bobby is becoming the Ben Carson. People liked him, the just didn’t want to vote for him.

    The reason Bobby is becoming Ben is simple. People don’t want to vote for someone who falls back on typical liberal tropes. No, Bobby isn’t woke, I think that is what is getting him the respect, but liberalism is what got us woke.

    Bobby sees a problem, and he becomes Bernie.

    I also see a lot of dismay from well-wishers, people who don’t identify with any party, thy lean conservative but have become disaffected, even with Trump.

    They would love to throw in their lot with Kennedy, but then he talks down to us about affirmative action or whatever, and we see that he bought into the whole white privilege schtick, and believes some of the nutty stuff about the effects of poverty that were written to help usher in the NWO, and he’s also got a touch of White Savior Complex.

    I saw Ben &Jerry’s lunacy about returning land which just happens to be happening in the same way at the same time in the country of Australia, and any fool out to be able to see what that is really about, and I was terrified that RFK Jr. was going to chime in and maybe offer to give Indians the family homestead in Hyannisport or something.

    I’m rambling, but my point is, Bobby is gaining ground but then he scores own goals, because he can’t see past some of the fallacies he grew up with.

    He needs to be very careful who he listens to.

      And the Ojibwa-Cree drove the Sioux out the Northern Forest and onto the Plains. The Sioux were camped on the fringe in Southeastern Minnesota. They weren’t sure what to do and sent out scouts. The scouts begged the tribes in the Dakotas for food and warmth. Thus replenished, they went back and told the Sioux that Peoples of the Dakotas were weak and gullible. The Invasion was a Go.

    I do believe the brain trust in D.C. is increasingly burdened by the wildly underestimated greed, thuggery, and open depravity of the Biden Bunch.

    Couple of thoughts on Hunter…

    Is the creature playing “Joe Biden” his father and is Dr Jill his mother? No? That could explain some acting out.

    And how is he still alive? Well into his 50’s, he’s survived blowback from money, sex, and power addiction. Hookers, blow (crack no less), Ukrainian gangsters, CCP spooks, an angry baby mama, and Obama’s fixers have taken him to the woodshed repeatedly.

    While I understand the sentiment, this isn’t a Hollywood movie cliché of course.

But who knows. Only time will tell.

    Knitting can be good therapy too and more constructive than, say, cocaine-enhanced sex with minors.

    There is an old trick that has been used over and over again by the autocratic Deep State. The cocaine farce is just another example.

    Want to change social morality, with drugs in this case, just show them in everyday, Joe Average situations such as the White House.

    Just like lies over and over become the truth, exposure to evil over and over becomes the norm..

    Think prostitution, gambling, marijuana, human trafficking, LBGTQ, all immorality made acceptable by media processing.

    The Mob has used the technique over and over again. No wonder the Mob now controls the country.

      Sex with minors and farm animals: the next taboo items that will be forced into mainstream acceptance.

      • Woodchuck July 7, 2023 at 2:50 pm #

        “Sex with minors and farm animals:”

        The next taboo to fall will be necrophilia. The necrophiliacs will have the time of their lives after the big die-off is underway. The prelude to the long emergency. They’ll be able to have fun with the corpses that the coyotes have somehow missed.

    It’s an age old power enforcement technique that can labeled as the “Versailles” method.

    A regime can demonstrate its completely unfettered ability to do anything it pleases, unconstrained by law and simultaneously projecting its utter contempt for those who lack the power to mount organized resistance.

    The odds are so small that any change might be effected, and even when it is as in France, the ancient regime was placed back in power a mere 30 years later.

    So, it’s not form of government nor is it economic basis. Rather, it’s the 7 venial sins that neatly summarize human nature, and why the same personality types (your criminal mob reference) continually resurface each generation.

    UFO Hunters Say Spacecraft Debris Appears ‘Artificial In Origin’
    July 6, 2023 by sd

    From Washington Examiner:

    Two Harvard University scientists, widely known as “alien hunters,” said debris recovered from an unidentified flying object that crashed into the Pacific Ocean in January 2014 appears to be “artificial in origin.”

    Professor Avi Loeb and researcher Amir Siraj recovered 50 “anomalous” iron spheres last week after tracking down the UFO in question, named IM1, as part of a $1.5 million underwater search off the coast of Papua New Guinea, the Daily Mail reported. After analyzing the metallic alloys, both scientists concluded they belong to an “interstellar spacecraft.” “This composition is anomalous compared to human-made alloys, known asteroids, and familiar astrophysical sources,” Loeb said
    ————–
    When a meteor enters the atmosphere and disintegrates, tiny iron ball bearing are often found in tthe debris field.

    Mary, this goes to your ball bearing found at the bottom of an ancient mine in SA.

    NY Post

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s official website published advice for trans and non-binary individuals on seeking guidance on how to “chestfeed” their infants.

    In sections of the major health institute’s guidance on breastfeeding, it contained information for those who have had much of their breasts removed in gender-reassignment surgeries, or for biological men taking hormones to grow breasts, on how to feed their newborn children.

    However, several doctors criticized the guidance, not simply because CDC has appeared to guide biological men in how to breastfeed children, but because they claimed the CDC has failed to gauge the risks posed to children drinking milk produced by chemicals used in gender-reassignment medical operations.

    Jarek: Trans-women CAN breastfeed, that’s the good news for modern man, the gospel. If such chemicalized “milk” causes infants to have heart problems, well that’s a small price to pay. Look how dangerous cars are? Do we stop driving? Ok, then.

    ‘we’ll see if we can get this ship righted and under sail again.’

    The corruption of the UScorporation is so wide and deep, from courts to medicine to education and business, that there is no redemption possible. Who will right the ship? Congress, loaded to the gills with lobby money from every criminal enterprise in amerika? Judges, who are on the take at every level? The doctors, who aren’t about to wreck their racket of the Rockefeller model of big hospitals (who literally hold patients hostage) and big pharma medicine? The college profs who possess delusions they force upon their students, while being unaware that they, themselves, are delusional? Like Rome, the US system will crash and burn and fall into the dust bin of history. 500 years from now the world will speak a common Mandarin language and their history books will have vague references to an evil and morally corrupt ‘civilization’ that resided in the americas until they destroyed themselves.

    “… be grateful for, how perfect “Joe Biden” is as president of this foundering republic. He and his family project the rectified essence of every depravity now driving the life of our nation to some murky bottom… the personification of a failed state.”

    But there is another perspective to consider here!

    We are told that a having a good family life means doing things together, sharing things with each other, and pretty much being headed in the same direction.

    On this scale, why should these qualities not apply to toxic families and those who indulge in blatant corruption? Are these not shared values that can unite a family?

    Note: This is merely a general question to consider and this has absolutely nothing to do any particular high-profile individuals who may be abusing their positions of Public Trust for their own personal gain by-any-means-necessary. We the People have no reason to fear this in real life because American State Media has assured us that everything is fine and there is nothing to see here… or here… or there… or over there… or under there… and in that bag over there… or those envelopes over there… Well, you get the idea.

    And as we have all learned during the CovidCon Psy-Op, American State Media is trustworthy and has nothing but our best interests at heart! Glad to know in times like these we have someone to trust and guide us!

    We can be thankful that we live in a Nation where families can still share things together and have common goals and common ethics. It’s things like this that make a Country great and warm our hearts and give us hope and belief in having a Bright Future! (cue the ‘Hallelujah chorus…).

    • SW July 7, 2023 at 4:29 pm #

      I can’t remember the name of the psychologist I heard this from in a radio interview but what he said about toxic families stuck with me. He said one hallmark was no one gets in and no one gets out. The Biden clan, joins the Clinton, Bush, and probably Trump too clans in keeping the wealth and power in their grip. Maybe that was one of the reasons the media attacked Trump’s kids so quickly and it’s still going on. But never a word of criticism about Chelsea or the Bush twins.

      We’re lucky we have so many government agencies to kindly watch over us and shield us from misinformation and do our thinking for us too. Families can share common goals and ethics provided we’re not in lockdown and we don’t use a gas stove to cook on.

    Return to France and the riots.

    Here is a first-rate analysis, by the excellent Alex Krainer, of the political and social background of the French riots.

    I have speculated that there seemed to be organized groups ready to spring into action at the occurrence of some kind of trigger event.

    Krainer speculates here on the possible role of the USA/NATO/EU globalists in trying to weaken France—always the rebel within the EU. Not bowing to diktats from either the USA or NATO or the Anglosphere. Now, with Macron . . . Macron will have to make a choice very soon: Which side is he on? .

    Krainer is no fan of Macron, but presents a nuanced view of Macron and the particular role of France within the EU and in the bigger global picture.

    Boy, do i appreciate nuance!! Also, quite a few of the comments are well worth reading. This article was mentioned by Vanessa Bealey, and UK Column. Not sure I agree with all of her comments on the France business, but she gives a different perspective. This was Wed’s news show: httpX://www.ukcolumn.org/

    Krainer is always good. Thoughtful and logical. So lucid, too, in his oral presentations.

    I don’t know, Jim. You are exactly right in your description of the cesspool that is the White House and the filthy family that occupies it. There is no honor in that group. Just grift, filth and corruption.

    Where you are wrong is in your quote I have pasted above. They will not be thrown overboard. They will continue and continue and continue.

    I guess I’ll add, as a parent of an adult who has been to Rehab, and since has done herculean work to deal with their situation, and remained sober for close to 15 years now ~ this isn’t “Love”.
    This is absolutely not maternal or paternal love for a child of any age. Love is not covering, excsue-making, and allowing a child to sink into the depths that Hunter has, and then marshalling armies of powerful people to act as professional, paid enablers. This is one of the more obscene cases of “child” exploitation and emotional abuse that I have seen. All played out in front of the public.

    Biden monetized his own son.
    Using him as a photo-op as a 3 year old boy even while on the child’s hospital bed after losing his mother, who likely suicided. (Then Joe ruined the trucker who ran into her by saying the trucker was drunk when he wasn’t. She pulled out in front of him and he couldn’t stop in time. The man died a wreck, and his own adult children are left with terrible scars of their own).
    Joe has used his son at every turn, and in every way. Who is prostituted here? the females in the videos, or Hunter?. Both of course. But this is not “Love”.

    I do not feel sorry for Hunter. No one should. He’s responsible for his choices in this ugly family and he’s spread enormous destruction. He should have walked away decades ago. When Joe makes his public declarations of “love” for his family (as well as his so-called Christian faith) but his false claims of love for his sons especially, I want to vomit.
    And Jill is just a curtain-clad demon, not worth typing about. This is not “Love”.

    An absolutely beautiful expressed summary by Biven at MoA. JHK talent level, addressing the real root causes.

    The underlying cause of Ukraine -and every other conflict of the kind- is the US government’s commitment to Full Spectrum Dominance.

    It really is as simple as that- the US government is the global equivalent of Organised Crime. And everywhere that it goes, from south east Asia to Europe, to Africa and Latin America, it recruits and trains the criminally inclined to work with it and for its objective which is to produce a Hell on Earth, in which a small class of exploiters devour the substance which humanity, in harmony with nature, produces.

    The war in Ukraine, where victory is critical to humanity’s future, is nevertheless little more than a sideshow in world wide struggle between imperialism, no longer masked as anything more than a criminal project, and life. Life demands balance, justice and love and abhors cannibalism which is the very essence of the criminality of Empire- a greedy minority surrounded by the bones and the shortened, blighted lives of those whom they have devoured.

    What Biden is telling us, and those like him have been telling us with increasing confidence for eighty years, is that obvious breaches of law and morality no longer matter because the domination that the ruling class has over the world includes control of information and opinion, which means that the criminals have the ability to re-write the law to ensure that they cannot be identified as breaking it.

    The US government has been breaking every rule in the book, reneging on every agreement it ever made and betraying both the letter and spirit of every law it runs into-domestically and internationally- since people started paying attention to its actions. And long before it sealed its independence in the C18th. It has always been a criminal conspiracy.

    But since 1945 it has ceased to pretend otherwise. And it’s government has been taken over by the CIA, an institution which is not only out of but beyond control- it runs all three branches of government, the entire law enforcement system, the media, the internet, all means of communication and education. And is rapidly taking over every other government- it owns the UN for example. Its agents fill the legislatures across Europe- they command the armed forces of most of the world’s military, and they are constantly beavering away, gnawing at the roots of the few power centres that it does not already control.

    But there is hope, yet, in those countries which have hasd, over the centuries enough of imperialism-as its colonised objects- to teach them that there is one imperative in politics today, one precondition to the solution of mankind’s many problems, and that is the defeat of the Empire and the re-education of the millions that it has corrupted.

    This last will not be hard- the basis of imperialism is the belief that it is the winning side, once that is dealt with in the form of a comprehensive defeat, the Empire will expire with the whimpering of bullies and time servers learning that might is not right and that justice, the foundation of all physics and philosophy, will triumph or life will end.

    • Islander July 7, 2023 at 5:34 pm #

      And whence do these criminals get their conviction that theirs is the right to rule all and destroy others at will?

      Two guesses, and the first one doesn’t count.

      Re “the basis of imperialism is the belief that it is the winning side, once that is dealt with in the form of a comprehensive defeat, the Empire will expire with the whimpering of bullies and time servers . . .”

      The source of the fanatical conviction must be proclaimed and destroyed in root and branch.

      That requires more than a Russian win in Ukraine. These criminals are very good at going to ground, hiding their spoils, and reemerging as victims a little while later.

      Not true.
      It doesn’t give AF
      In fact, it more than likely abhors life as so little of it exists, and on the one planet where there is an abundance, almost everything is killing something to survive in the Earth cage match.

      There are bullfrogs in Africa who lay a sufficient amount of eggs to allow for the later-born to hop right out of the watering hole and right into the mouths of their waiting older brethren, providing them an important first meal.

      Imagine the mental state of someone who goes from one failed date to the next with not a twinge of self reproach.

      When December 8 failed, she didn’t bother offering any apologies or explanations. She been doing this a long time and is hardened.

      • anmariwakaranai July 9, 2023 at 1:35 pm #

        In that father Rodrigues prophesy, he said the events of the tribulation would begin dec 8th, if I remember correctly.

        It was MY OWN opinion that you mistrued, as usual. ;(

    Thing is, when you throw people overboard a sunken ship, well, they still float to the top.

  62. taijitu July 7, 2023 at 8:38 pm #

    Isn’t it when the ship is righted? The cocaine was found in the library. Maybe that should be capitalized. Thus, the Library is found in the East Wing where na’ry a person goeth, except you know whoeth.

    • Edge Lord July 8, 2023 at 9:51 am #

      They will always come out on top.

      This “ship” did not capsize
      It was scuttled

    I wonder if the ancient Eastern Island princes started shorting Coke towards the end?

    In the book “Overshoot”, William Catton says that our industrial civilisation today is just like Easter Island and that our quixotic faith that technology will save us from population overshoot is akin to the “Cargo Cultism” of the Melanesians.

    But, our corrupt Elites have “Vaccine” technology to get the population numbers way, way “Down”….

    • Pucker July 7, 2023 at 9:46 pm #

      The use of “Vaccine” Technology to dramatically lower population rather than to postpone temporarily collapse by raising the “Carrying Capacity” of the environment represents the desired mental “Paradigm Shift” that Catton calls for in the opening chapters of his excellent book?

    • SoftStarLight July 8, 2023 at 4:36 am #

      Easter Island, and you probably meant snorting? The Rapa Nui though were very sophisticated people. Some people say that their civilization didn’t decline because of overpopulation but because they were so remote they were unable to obtain supplies that their ancestors were used to having when they lived on other islands. What if the whole “vaccine” depopulation thing is just a mass sacrifice to Satan? Perhaps like past cultures sacrificed people to their gods. Were people sacrificed for the Moai?

      • Heartlander July 8, 2023 at 2:12 pm #

        Interesting the way you phrased that.
        I have, for some time now, had this idea that getting the injection is (or at least is akin to) participating in some sort of Satanic initiation ritual.
        Makes it easier to resolve to resist the thing even to the point of martyrdom.

        • SoftStarLight July 8, 2023 at 3:33 pm #

          There was a time where I would’ve laughed at you if you’d told me that the “elites” were actually just a bunch of genocidal Satanist pedophiles. Now I’m afraid they could even be worse than that if you can imagine.

    My wife and I spent this afternoon at our condo swimming pool enjoying the sun and the good weather here in the Boston area (I hear this weekend is supposed to be wet). Anyway, we were sitting at a table with several of our friends from the complex when someone brought up when the next vax shots would be coming.

    We were horrified to learn everyone else at the table already had been vaxxed four times. My wife and I just looked at each other horrified. We were stupid enough, in hindsight, to have been triple vaxxed. It may yet kill us early, but we’re still kicking, so who knows? I look at our injections as two rounds because the first shot was supposed to not be effective unless we had a 2nd shot a month later.Then we had to compound the matter by going a 3rd time. But we’ve learned “never again”. Que sera, sera.

    But today our acquaintances are planning on taking a fifth shot and maybe a sixth shot when the authorities announce the next version is ready – plus maybe even more shots for the latest threat du jour. You have to remember we live in the ultra-liberal state of Massachusetts where this is the prevalent attitude.

    These people are my neighbors and friends. I feel bad for them. But we kept our mouths shut.

    BTW, my wife is doing terrific. She has responded very well to her weekly chemotherapy. No side effects except that two days after injections she gets a little fuzzy-headed for a day – it’s called chemo brain. Next month, if all continues to go well as it has, since she doesn’t seem to have any cancer cells left, she’s going on maIntenance. They’ll stop some of her meds and then she goes only once a month. Forever, because the cancer is not curable, and without any treatment the bad cells will reappear. But once a month for only two hours isn’t bad. She’s driving now and living normally.

    • Edge Lord July 7, 2023 at 10:56 pm #

      Departing a grocery store with only a bag in hand, an older gentleman, perhaps in his late 80’s and following behind his equally aged wife, gave me a very wide berth and paused before entering. It was totally unnecessary and as I attributed his act to old-fashioned politeness I paid him a thank you.

      Moments later I looked back over my shoulder and there he was putting on his mask before entering.

      I felt foolish and a bit egocentric for having thanked him in mistaken belief.
      I then felt feelings of annoyance that another codger is a slave to the mask mandate. For life.
      But I checked those sentiments, for his life is most likely not much longer, and he still has his wife with him, and he’s out shopping and life is good and normal for him, and if he thinks this prolongs it, who am I to judge?

      • beantownbill. July 8, 2023 at 12:10 pm #

        Exactly. Other people live their own lives the best they can. That doesn’t mean they’re doing or not doing the most effective living, but such is life.

    • Islander July 8, 2023 at 7:38 am #

      Good news, BTB, re your wife’s recovery.

      I wonder, have you looked at all into nutritional supports for helping the body deal with chemo?

      I, too, live in Mass. The ultra-Woke mindset is suffocating.

      At the same time these Wokesters with their victim- and “intersectionality-seeking radar do not give a shite about the Palestinians.

      • beantownbill. July 8, 2023 at 12:04 pm #

        Thanks. Today, on schedule, my wife has chemo-brain, but otherwise is ok.

        Re the Palestinians, my friends or acquaintances don’t mention the Palestinians, or even the Middle East. I think that’s because they are wrapped up in their own lives. I have an acquaintance couple whose daughter and grandchildren live in Israel. They visit them in Israel a few times a year. They interact with the Palestinians when they visit, but they don’t think much of them. They’ve told me some scary stories about their interactions.

        The first duty of the Conqueror is the bear the hatred of the conquered.

        It’s no small thing. Ben Gurion said to drive them out – but you failed in this regard. Just as we failed to follow the mandate of our Founding Father, Jefferson, in regards to the Blacks. Now look at the results of that.

      • WadeWaters July 8, 2023 at 10:14 pm #

        Massachusetts is not a state; rather, it is a state of mind.

        Or so it says on the top floor of the Prudential Building in Boston.

        • beantownbill. July 9, 2023 at 11:45 am #

          That’s assuming you have a mind.

    • Heartlander July 8, 2023 at 2:21 pm #

      Massachusetts, eh? The land of Irish “Catholics.” Who evidently do not give a shit that these “vaccines” were developed and tested (and in the case of J&J, even manufactured) using fetal cell lines from murdered babies.

      If all the Christians in the U.S. had stood united against these Frankenshots, we would not be in this mess we’re in.

      I would like to think that most of these Christians were simply ignorant that these “vaccines” were developed by exploiting the organs “harvested” from aborted babies. But then that raises the question: WHY didn’t they know? Anyone who read pro-life sources such as LifeSiteNews with any regularity would have come across this information. So that makes me wonder how many Christians are truly committed to a Culture of Life.

      • beantownbill. July 8, 2023 at 6:14 pm #

        My friends and neighbors generally are in the technological dark ages. Some don’t even have internet or computers. Their contact with the wider outside world is reading the Boston Globe and the local newspaper and watching network tv. I graduated college in 1967 with a scientific education, but that was a very long time ago, so I guess I’m used to technically ignorant people. But they generally are nice. They just don’t see the irony of supporting vaccines while being Democrats. One of my friends is 86, but he understands as he’s more conservative and skeptical.

      @beantown bill

      How are you doing your friends a favor by helping them to perpetuate their mental illness? If their fifth booster is the final shot that pushes them over the edge of cardiac failure, breakdown of the blood-brain barrier, (AKA long Covid) or acceleration of tumor growth how have you helped them? They may be beyond recovery in their mass psychosis, but what about their children?

      Is it worth it to your mental health to keep quiet in order to still call them your friends?

      How is the business of cancer different in practice from the business of mandatory genetic alteration and destruction of the natural immune system disguised as a vaccine? Why do you trust one profit center of standard medical practice when you have learned that another cash cow is a fraud based solely upon greed?

      • beantownbill. July 9, 2023 at 12:07 pm #

        What a nice, idealistic thought. The problem, Thor, is the world doesn’t work that way. Their children are adults. It’s their grandchildren who need proper guidance.

        I’ve seen what happens when someone has a pov that others don’t want to hear and that person keeps harping on it: Everyone avoids them. Over the years I’ve lost friends (by death) from doing wrong things that I pointed out to them. Not one listened to me.

        Once, one person in my condo kept harping on this one angle. She was right, but everyone avoided her because she already made her point. She ended up committing suicide.

        I’ve learned the hard way to make my point and then shut up.

        • Anthea July 9, 2023 at 8:29 pm #

          @ beantownbill:

          Yes, I think that’s usually the best course. Realistically, there’s not much you can do to change people’s minds. The best you can do is to plant a seed here and there.

        • Islander July 10, 2023 at 9:07 am #

          “I’ve learned the hard way to make my point and then shut up.”

          So true. Harping on things just raises hackles, and resistance. Especially in social settings where no one wants to be lectured to, regardless of the good intent. It is really frustratingn to listen to people retailing stupidity.

          The Germans have a great comment, impossible to translate the “atmospherics.”

          “Ich sage nichts.”
          “I say nothing.”
          Uttered with a certain pointed tone.

          If one does shut up and let “nature” take its course—-some people starting to “get it”—I think they will be far more likely to sort of admit this if one just shuts up.

          Recently my nephew commented, in passing, that a good, old friend—super healthy guy, outdoorsman– is not doing so well. He said, ” I don’t know, maybe a reaction to the vaccine, maybe covid effects.” So, he was actually admitting, in passing, that he now understands that there can be bad results from the jabs.

          He and his wife (I think she was the neforcer) were 150% on board with all the jabs and boosters and PCR tests and having TG dinner sitting outdoors eating turkey sandwiches a couple of years ago.

    The ship is adrift and is captained by a maniac. I am grateful. So, is this time of overwhelming melodrama and moral paralysis something like the summer doldrums? The air is hot, humid and stagnant. Like stifling censorship and cancellation. But sometimes there are sudden, almost spontaneous storms. Wow there is cocaine in the White House that is sending cluster bombs to Ukraine! And the winds are so still and calm that the water turns to glass. Glass frozen just like all the people who seem oblivious or unconcerned that the captain is indeed a maniac. Will the inevitable mutiny bring forth a non-maniacal captain or will we need to swim for it?

      We must grow stronger like Humphrey Van Weyden did in ‘The Sea Wolf’. Biden might be a maniac but he’s no Wolf Larsen and yet we can’t bring him down. Can you imagine him surviving Trump’s ordeal? No way.

      Biden is no captain, not even a bosun, not even a capable deckhand.
      He’s sinking the ship and probably won’t go down with it. Yes, who will be our Fletcher Christian?

      Record heat out this way, well into triple digits, but as one skeleton said to the other, ‘but it’s a dry heat’. Dry as a bone. Furnace wind. Desert dreams. Monsoons are a bit late this year in bringing relief. Torrential rains lower the torrid temperatures. Desert deluge, desert delight.

      • Woodchuck July 8, 2023 at 7:20 am #

        We used to have plenty of triple digit days here in the southeast in July. Not anymore. It’s cooler and rainy with high temps averaging in the mid 80’s. When you have triple digits combined with very high humidity blowing up from the Gulf – now that’s what you call misery! It’s a wet heat and it makes you feel like you’ve been wrapped in a hot wet blanket all day long if you are working outside.

        But not now, I’ve not turned my ac on at all this summer, and with a bit of luck it will stay off all the rest of the year. I usually don’t wimp out and turn on ac until it gets into the mid 90’s and higher during the day. I can endure heat ok and I’m used to it, but find it difficult to sleep in a sweaty bed with temps in the 80’s at night. I can make it using a fan at night, but ac works better. Could I make it here in the south with no ac? Sure! I just wouldn’t be as comfy.

      • SoftStarLight July 8, 2023 at 3:43 pm #

        It’s been really hot here too. A few days ago we had a massive monsoon deluge filled with this incredible and intense lightning. Literally like a bolt with explosive thunder every minute or less. We got a month and a half’s worth of rain in less than an hour. The frogs were so happy it sounded like a multitude of choirs outside lol. I can only imagine how beautiful the desert is when in full bloom!!

    • Woodchuck July 8, 2023 at 7:28 am #

      “or will we need to swim for it?”

      My man Shine decided to swim for it, and he made it!

      “Shine and the Titanic,”

      It was a helluva day in the merry month of May,
      Shine was the stoker on the Titanic that day
      When a big iceberg come a floatin’ their way.

      Shine said, “Cap’n Charley, Cap’n Charley, there’s a big iceberg floatin’ our way.”

      Cap’n said, “Shine, Shine, don’t you be no clown,
      I got ninety-nine pumps to pump the water down.
      I got pumps made of pipes and chumps to pump.
      I got a trillion dollar load I ain’t going to dump.”

      Shine said, “Cap’n Charley, Cap’n Charley, if you look now,
      There’s a whole lot of ice comin’ ‘cross the bow.
      I ain’t never read a book, ain’t never been to school,
      But Louzeeanna Annie ain’t never raised a fool.”
      Shine said that to himself.

      Cap’n Charley said, “Shine, Shine don’t you know my might?
      Anything I say and do is right.
      You work for Cap’n Charley when the sun comes up
      You brings my favorite slippers and my coffee cup.
      You work for Cap’n Charley, stokin’ the coal.
      You work for Cap’n Charley and I owns your soul.
      You might be a Christian and pray to the Lord,
      But on the Titanic, I outranks God.”

      [Pfister makes a sound to indicate that an iceberg hits the ship]
      Then there was a loud, crashin,’ smashin’ sound
      God pulled rank.
      Shine said, “You might be the Cap’n on the land and the sea,
      You might run the engines, you might turn the key.
      You might be Cap’n Charley, well all that’s hip,
      But I’m gettin’ off of Cap’n’s stinkin,’ sinkin’ ship.”

      Jumped his black butt into the sea, he did.
      He said, “I’m going to tell you one thing, and I don’t mean maybe,
      But I was long and grown when Father Time was a baby.
      I done kilt a whole lot of men’s way better than you.
      Done kilt a thousand V.C. in Dien Bien Phu.
      You can be Tarzan and Rambo and Jungle Jim,
      But that’s one iceberg that sure ain’t slim.
      Forked is your tongue, I done heard all the lies,
      I’m going to ride with the water and make my own enterprise.”

      Just about then a beggar came on board cryin,’
      “Save me, save me, Shine, in the name of the Lord.
      I gots money and dollars I can’t even spend,
      I owns a whole lot of people, got stock in the pen,
      I give you fine black women and white ones, too,
      because I gots more money than the U.S. Mint do.
      I give you big pretty houses and Cadillac cars,
      Give you fifty hotels and ninety-nine bars.
      I runs all the drugs from Harlem to Watts,
      I takes food from the mouths of the tiniest tots,
      I buys all the missiles and guns for the planes,
      I own ninety-nine ships and three hundred trains.
      I give you all the money that a black boy needs,
      Give you ten tons of coke and twenty tons of weed.”

      Shine thought for a while. . . .
      “I’m the runner of the world,
      The master in the Lord,
      I’m going to please her with my Visa and my Bank Americard.
      I’ll give you money and power and fortune and fame,
      Every fine black girl in the world going to know your name.”
      Shine said, “You can giggle from the weed, you can laugh from the coke,
      But get your bootie in the water and cut your stroke.
      You can have all your money, your friends and your foes,
      You can finance your wars and your G.I. Joes.
      You gots more money than a human had oughta,
      So get your butt out here in this freezin’ cold water.
      You rich and you greedy, ain’t never been broke,
      So get your butt in the water and cut your stroke.
      You can call on the mounties and the C.I.A.,
      But they going to get their dry behinds wet today.
      Sorry, Mr. Banker, I don’t need your pain,
      because I’ll be sittin’ with my baby just a listenin’ to the Train.
      I’m going to swim to New Orleans for some panne meat,
      Going to do the Mississippi Mambo down on Claiborne Street.
      Going to wear orange and gold and purple and green,
      Go runnin’ with the Injuns, eat all the red beans.
      You might like Chaka, you might like Rufus,
      Even Leon Spinks know you lying through your toofus.”
      Just then the banker’s daughter floated by Shine.
      She said, “Come over here, Shine.
      Save some o’little ole mine.
      I got a body like a ballard and cheeks like Gladys,
      Butt like Bertha and hair like Alice.
      I got legs like Tina and a chest like Dolly,
      I can almost sing colored and lilac ollie.”

      He said, “I like my women’s lips red and my crawfish burled
      I like the mamas with the boom booms and their hair all curled.
      I like hot filé gumbo and devilish eggs.
      I like them Uptown girls with they big fine legs,
      I like Downtown womens with they night dark eyes,
      I like Backatown womens with they big brown thighs.
      I done lived on the land and on ships in the sea,
      And the ladies on land is the ladies for me.”

      And Shine swam on. . . .
      Shine swam down past the Florida Keys,
      He was trembling in the arms and weak in the knees.
      While Shine was a’swimming, the ocean grew dark,
      And he bumped right into a great, big shark,
      A biiigggg black one.
      The shark he was purty, with pearly white teeth,
      He said, “Come over here, Shine, I’m a make you my meat.
      You sure look good, swimming in my sea,
      Gon’ make a right mighty fine meal for me.
      I ain’t got no chilrens and I don’t have a wife,
      But one thing I got is your no-swimming life.
      I’m a take you and eat you and swallow you whole,
      Make you cuss the very day your mammy borned your soul.
      I’m big and I’m strong, I takes what I like,
      I done robbed Robin Givens and beat up Mike.
      Yeah, Mr. Shine, Mack the Knife is sweet,
      I can outswim a wave, and I like dark meat.
      I rules all the waters, I’m King o’the sea,
      Ain’t ne’er whale or minnow can get past me.
      All the fishes in the water gets outta my way,
      From the Rock o’Gibraltar to Barataria Bay.
      Ran into a whale, he thought he was slick,
      Lil’ minnow told me his name was Moby-Dick.
      When I tore my teeth into that little ole whale,
      I had to hang out a sign saying [high-pitched voice], `Blubber for sale.’
      I done wrote with Alex Haley and dunked with Kareem,
      Hung with I. W. Harper, got drunk with Jim Beam.
      I done ate up the bones o’Gunga Din,
      Got Cap’n Bligh’s blood on my chinnie, chin, chin.
      I done ate up some pirate when they walked the plank,
      I done lied with Nixon and sang with Frank.
      I done ate German subs and planes full o’people,
      Ate the rock from the Hudson and the bell from the steeple.
      I done ate up the quail that was hiding in the bush,
      Took your grandma to the mountain and gave her a push.
      I’m a meeaann shark.
      I done ate up Sally, I done ate up Sue,
      Start choking, quit stroking, I’m a eat up you!”

      Shine said, “Mr. Shark, I’m a tell you, and it ain’t no lie,
      I taught the Signifying Monkey how to signify.
      I done taught Hank Aaron how to hit the ball,
      I showed Barbie’s mammy how to make a doll.
      That ain’t really nothing, cause I tell you what,
      I done showed Big Bertha how to do the butt.
      You might rule the water from London to Selma,
      But you ain’t no badder than J. J. and Thelma.
      My daddy’s a poet, my mama’s a singer,
      I got a uncle out West who’s a baaadd gunslinger,
      Kilt three white men and lived, he did.
      If you wants you some bones and some flesh to tear,
      There’s a cap’n and a banker and his daughter out there.
      If you might chance to think you can catch this man,
      You might as well be a tuna in a tunafish can.
      Who you out here call yo’self trying to warn?
      All you sayin’ ain’t but talk behind the barn.
      You mighta ate a lotta pirates when they walked the plank,
      But I likes shark meat, don’t you see my shank?
      I like red, silky shirts, I done paid my dues,
      I like black Cadillacs and shark-skin shoes.
      You might rule the ocean, reign over the sea,
      But you gotta grow new fins to outswim me.

      And Shine swam on.
      The Titanic sank and a lotta folk died,
      Grandmamas was weepin’ and little babies cried.
      When the news hit shore about the Titanic that night,
      Shine was in New Orleans, high as a kite!
      He played him some music with Satcha-moe,
      Went to a cemetery party with Marie Laveau.
      He was the slickest and the quickest,
      He was fine like wine.
      He was wicked in the picket, my man, Shine.

      They thought Shine was dead, somewhere down afar,
      But Shine was in New Orleans,
      Hankin’ and a pankin’
      Glidin’ and a slidin’
      Honkin’ and a tonkin’
      Dreamin’ and a schemin’
      Smackin’ and a mackin’
      Smokin’ and a jokin’
      Bammin’ and a jammin’
      Jumpin’ and a bumpin’
      Winkin’ and a blinkin’
      Coolin’ and a schoolin’
      Juicin’ and a goosin’
      Hangin’ and a bangin’
      Skinnin’ and a grinnin’

    You know that you’re having a bad day when they throw you in Jeffrey Epstein’s former jail cell where Epstein allegedly hung himself from his bed with a paper bed sheet with the tensile strength of a sheet of notebook paper.

    “ The Constitution forbids secret trials under the Sixth Amendment. Yet, Judge Richard Owen closed the courtroom and even threw out the Associated Press, causing them to question publicly if I would get a fair trial on April 27, 2003.

    Judge Owen removed all my lawyers, threatening them with contempt as well. He threw me in maximum security with the terrorists of the first World Trade Center attack, and yes, they even tried to kill me in the same prison where Jeffrey Epstein supposedly committed suicide. I was beaten and in a coma for days but awoke in the hospital; to their dismay—I survived.

    The Fifth Amendment states: “Due process essentially guarantees that a party will receive a fundamentally fair, orderly, and just judicial proceeding.” So much for human rights.”

            The Hildebeast’s greatest trick (so far…) has been to convince (most of) the world that she is not interested in being dictator of the US.

            If Horseface Hubbell (aka “Chelsea Clinton”) has any ambition, she’d better “get informed, get inspired, and get going!”. She’s getting a bit long in the tooth to begin any kind of political career. She probably knows that there is no time left for that kind of thing. Unlike her parents (Webb and the ‘Beast) Chelsea will live a life of unearned luxury, without having to toil in the political trenches like the previous generation.

    And the other shoe is dropping.
    Millions of gallons of radioactive water is set to be released into the Pacific ocean yet again by Japan.
    The failures of just this one plant are actually changing our planet and not in a good way.

    The Koreans get it but apparently some Islanders don’t and want everyone to believe Nuclear power is safe and effective.
    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Hundreds of people marched in South Korea’s capital on Saturday demanding Japan scrap its plans to release treated wastewater from the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant, as the head of the U.N. nuclear agency met with senior officials to discuss public concerns over foods safety.

    The protests came a day after South Korea’s government formally endorsed the safety of the Japanese plans, saying that the contamination levels of water pumped out from the plant would be within acceptable standards and wouldn’t meaningfully affect South Korean seas as long as the plant’s treatment systems work as designed.

    The announcement aligned with the views of the International Atomic Energy Agency, which greenlit the Japanese discharge plans this week, saying the treated wastewater would meet international safety standards and pose negligible environmental and health impacts.

    Braving blistering summer heat and closely watched by police, the protesters walked in long lines through a commercial district in downtown Seoul, holding signs reading “We denounce the sea disposal of Fukushima’s nuclear wastewater!” and “We oppose with our lives the sea discharge.” The marches proceeded peacefully and there were no immediate reports of major clashes or injuries.

    “Other than discharging the water into the sea, there is an option to store the water on their land, and there are other options being suggested,” said Han Sang-jin, spokesperson of the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions, whose members accounted for many of the marchers.

    He said that allowing Japan to discharge the water “is like an international crime.”

    The protests provided a tense backdrop to a meeting between IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi and South Korean Foreign Minister Park Jin to discuss the IAEA’s assessment of the Japanese discharge plans. Park during the meeting called for the IAEA’s “active cooperation” in verifying the safety of the released wastewater more clearly and reassuring the South Korean public, his ministry said.

      Have you read the background on the faulty construction of Fukushima?

      Per Oliver Stone’s film, no deaths were attributable to the Fukushima accident, but instead were attributable to the chaotic evacuation scenario that ensued.

      Furhtermore, per Stone’s film, the accident at Fukushima was caused by the earthquake that occurred.

      Briefly:
      “How did the Fukushima accident happen? An earthquake and tsunami led to power loss in the Fukushima Daiichi plant. Without power, the cooling systems failed in three reactors, and their cores subsequently overheated.”

      Fukushima was deemed a manmade disaster.

      ” TOKYO—A report from a high-powered commission today blasted the government, regulators, and Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) for not anticipating and preventing the crisis at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant triggered by a powerful earthquake and tsunami in March 2011. Multiple reactor meltdowns and massive radiation releases forced authorities to evacuate 150,000 people from around the plant and shattered confidence in Japan’s nuclear industry and in the government’s capacity to respond to a disaster.

      “The TEPCO Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant accident was the result of collusion between the government, the regulators and TEPCO, and the lack of governance by said parties. They effectively betrayed the nation’s right to be safe from nuclear accidents. Therefore, we conclude that the accident was clearly ‘manmade,’ ” states the report from the panel, chaired by Kiyoshi Kurokawa, former president of the Science Council of Japan. “We believe that the root causes were the organizational and regulatory systems that supported faulty rationales for decisions and actions, rather than issues relating to the competency of any specific individual.”

      Created by the legislature to probe the Fukushima crisis, the 10-member commission is the first of its kind in Japan and had the power to obtain documents and other evidence. Among its recommendations, the panel’s report calls for a new independent and professional nuclear regulatory body.”

      Not well nor honestly argued, Mr. Benr.

      The decision about the water is not a referendum on the efficacy and wisdom of shifting to nuclear power for much of societies’ and economies’ energy requirements.

          It’s not just the waste, but how nuclear power is not insurable. So the coercive/violence-based centralized State picks up the tab on our coerced dime of course on the road to State/complexity lock-in.

      P.S.

      “In the peer-reviewed Philosophical Transactions A of the Royal Society, researchers Costas Synolakis of the USC Viterbi School of Engineering and Utku Kâno?lu of the Middle East Technical University in Turkey distilled thousands of pages of government and industry reports and hundreds of news stories, focusing on the run-up to the Fukushima Daiichi disaster in 2011. They found that “arrogance and ignorance,” design flaws, regulatory failures and improper hazard analyses doomed the coastal nuclear power plant even before the tsunami hit.

      “While most studies have focused on the response to the accident, we’ve found that there were design problems that led to the disaster that should have been dealt with long before the earthquake hit,” said Synolakis, professor of civil and environmental engineering at USC Viterbi. “Earlier government and industry studies focused on the mechanical failures and ‘buried the lead.’ The pre-event tsunami hazards study, if done properly, would have identified the diesel generators as the linchpin of a future disaster. Fukushima Daiichi was a sitting duck waiting to be flooded.”
      Regulatory failures

      The authors describe the disaster as a “cascade of industrial, regulatory and engineering failures” leading to a situation where critical infrastructure — in this case, backup generators to keep cooling the plant in the event of main power loss — was built in harm’s way. . . . ”

    Sandy Adams on 15-minute cities and what this concept actually hides, and portends.

    Sandy Adams is from Glastonbury, UK.
    Glastonbury is quite a famous town in southwest England, well known for its connections with Arthurian and other legends, for Glastonbury Abbey, and for music festivals.

    Do you understand the UN’s and WEF’s Agenda 2030? Do you understand the implications of digital IDs and CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency)? Do you understand how the possibly attractive idea of 15-minute cities relates to establishing total surveillance and control and mining people’s personal data, which is sold on an international market? This is already occurring.

    Sandy Adams provides a clear summary in her address to the Glastonbury Town Council. She pulls a lot of details together and connects dots that many people have not (yet) done. She knows what she is talking about. This whole Absolute Zero surveillance and control agenda is far more advanced in the UK than in the US, but this is a warning shot. Please watch—it’s not very long, just 12 minutes:

    When thinking about the potential chain of events which might lead to a further consolidation of blob power, prior to any social collapse, it seems to me that AI must also be more carefully factored into the situation.

    l tend to be firmly in the camp that views AI as the ultimate tool for blob authoritarian control which will make the present attempts at censorship seem quite quaint, ushering in the AI Surveillance Blob/State.

    There now appears to be a growing consensus among AI experts that this tool can generate emergent capabilities not foreshadowed by its own designers.

    But I have yet to hear any explanations of why such capabilities do, in fact, emerge.

    What are the consequences of an instrument which appears capable of making itself more powerful through the absorption of more and more data?

    We have already experienced our growing economic powerlessness because of a failure to understand and then corral credit generating capabilities.

    AI now sees us as endless data producers—what will that do to our sense of power? Already employees in many types of industries are providing the necessary information for AI to replace them.

    Data, in itself, will probably become as powerful as money–initially generating organizational structures worth trillions.

        I have a hard time taking AI (in it’s current iteration) seriously. Anything “produced” by AI is fairly easily discernable as such. It bases it’s “knowledge” and “wisdom” on what it can derive from internet searches, some 50%+++ is complete and utter BS. AI (in it’s current iteration) is misnamed. What we have is intelligent search disguised as AI. No artificial intelligence programs are able to come up with new content. They just cleverly separate, combine, and/or re organized information found on the internet (50% of which is BS). Show me an example of “AI” and I will show you enhanced, autonomous searching protocols.

    “The anarchist, as the born foe of authority, will be destroyed by it after damaging it more or less. The anarch, on the other hand, has appropriated authority; he is sovereign. He therefore behaves as a neutral power vis-à-vis state and society. He may like, dislike, or be indifferent to whatever occurs in them. That is what determines his conduct; he invests no emotional values.”
    ? Ernst Jünger, Eumeswil

    I always assumed this war hero was some kind of early National Socialist, but definitely not. He chooses the subjective, his own development as end in itself. As such, he may be closer to Nietzsche’s vision of the Great Man, beyond Good and Evil than we are.

    As Whitman said, either the Work or the Man must remain incomplete. Junger chooses himself. Whitman chose the work – as do National Socialists. At the higher level all of this can be reconciled of course.

    He was considered “a fellow traveler” because he glorified the effects of war on the individual’s consciousness. Not only a soldier, but an important literary figure, a chemist, and a philosopher.

    Is our own Mitch an anarch? Like Tusc, perhaps?

    • SoftStarLight July 8, 2023 at 4:56 pm #

      He might be. But I don’t think he is indifferent even though he displays no particular investment in any specific outcome.

      • Jarek July 9, 2023 at 12:09 am #

        As Lao Tzu said, he strives with none so none can strive with him. Opposite implies a line. The anarch is on a different line than others. His own private one?

        Opponents? His lower self perhaps. Or those who do care about society and have not renounced, be they anarchists or National Socialists.

    I watched a Pentagon press briefing which was astoundingly hypocritical.

    First, the Pentagon talking head justified sending cluster bombs to the Kiev regime by saying “Russia uses them also” (even though the Pentagon said before that there is no evidence for that. Never mind! We have a new propaganda campaign to run now, so that goes down the Memory Hole.)

    What happened to Whataboutism, the usual comeback by the shitlibs when you point out the hypocrisy of criticizing others for what you do?
    In the rules-based order, the rules change with every new atrocity.

    Then a reporter asked him about the US law that forbids the US sending cluster bombs with a high dud rate.
    He informed the reporter that the US was not breaking the law, because Biden had signed an EO overruling the law.

    The president can change laws with a signature?
    But a president can’t declassify documents that were prepared for him? Some presidents can overthrow laws, but others are prosecuted for taking their own papers with them?

    And finally, he was asked about the audacity of Russians interfering with US aircraft in Syrian airspace.
    He informed us that the world supported the US being able to fly wherever it wants over Syrian land, as it occupies 30% of Syrian land and steals its oil. (He left the last part out, of course. And no one was rude enough to ask why the “world” thinks that Russia entering the Ukrainian civil war was an unjustified invasion, but the US invading and occupying Syria is totally fine.)

    Hypocrisy to the max.

          I saw a video by Eva Bartlett, who was in Donestsk at the time.

          She pointed out the petal mines the Ukies sow all over the city.
          Which is a war crime, of course.

          They are little and look like leaves, so they are really hard to see.

          They can be defused, but there are thousands of them, and they are hard to see, so they miss some.

          So children and dogs, especially, are regularly blown up by them.

      • Paula D July 8, 2023 at 7:09 pm #

        That is another good example of hypocrisy and double standards, saint.

        The US went in and destroyed Libya because, and I quote, “He’s killing his own people”.

        But now Sullivan tells us that sending cluster bombs to the Kiev regime is hunky/dory, because they are only killing their own people.

        Where is the logic in that?

        But as you say, they know they are killing Russians, so I guess it’s not really hypocrisy.

        It’s lying scum.

    I’ve had a couple of suspiciously severe “bites” which I assume are mosquito, but… I can’t be sure.

    Anyway, I got a golf ball sized inflammation on a bite in my calf. I started massaging Ivermectin injectable solution into it, and simultaneously took a treatment level oral dose, so I would be attacking from both the exterior and interior surfaces.

    Within THREE HOURS a 3? diameter swollen hotspot bite now is… hold on, let me measure… gone. All that’s left is the bite itself, which I will continue to treat both externally and internally.

    So, here’s my question: does Ivermectin work on Poison Ivy? Because the anti-inflammatory properties are clearly HUGE. If anyone out there amongst the hundreds of thousands of you gets Poison Ivy this summer, which someone will, can you please, literally for science, treat it with Ivermectin, both topically and internally, and let me know? I grew up in sultry Eastern Kansas and remember well the absolute scourge of Poison Ivy, Oak and Sumac. It doesn’t exist where I am now, and I’m not wading in brush or undergrowth much these days, but the question looms: does Ivermectin help Poison Ivy, Oak, Sumac??

    Because I can tell you straight-up right now that it is borderline magic on insect bites.

    This could help a LOT of people.

        No big deal. I grew up with ticks.

        But the bite site kept itching for a month, plus subsequently I had what looked like multiple small bites that also itch—but not aware of anything having bitten me. Like a rash that looks like small scattered insect bites.

            AGS is transmitted via tick bites

            Alpha-gal syndrome (AGS) (also called alpha-gal allergy, red meat allergy, or tick bite meat allergy) is a serious, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. AGS is not caused by an infection. AGS symptoms occur after people eat red meat or are exposed to other products containing alpha-gal.

            EAT THE BUGS! Do you know that this has precedent in the Old Testament of the Bible? True story.

            Just finished a book on a first person account of some guy that visited every site that could be recognized as mentioned in the Old Testament. There were a few pages on manna. Manna is the excretion of a particular wood louse found only on Tamarisk trees in various deserts in the Middle East.

            God sent the Israelis bug shit to eat.. Or bug guano if squeamish. Apparently they collected the accumulated droppings every morning…reports have it that it was sweet, and did not taste like chicken.

            You could look it up….

        @ Night Owl:

        Spider bite?

        • MrMangoOnMyShoulder July 10, 2023 at 8:09 am #

          Not sure if Germany has chiggers like southern Missouri does, but after most visits to the family farm those bites tend to last me at least a month or two on my ankles, resurfacing and becoming itchy again multiple times. Those little bastards are something else. Never really even see them, but they clearly like me.

          • Night Owl July 10, 2023 at 8:38 am #

            Interesting.

            I have noticed that new skin starts to grow over it after a few days, but if I am active, it turns red oddly swollen again.

    • elysianfield July 8, 2023 at 7:02 pm #

      “Because I can tell you straight-up right now that it is borderline magic on insect bites.”

      Jarek,
      This is good to know…because….

      I found a huge, football sized hornet nest at the roof in one of my shops. Bald faced hornets, big evil bastards that attack with an attitude, and hold a grudge. What to do? What is the correct thing to do? The socially and environmentally correct way to handle this problem? The damn things will, when it becomes hot, practice area denial on my sorry ass, and, according to public records, I am the one paying the property tax on the ranch, so…

      I prepared for battle with my Barra 400e BB machine gun…got 30 feet away, in a circuitous route that did not approach the nest, and then let them have it…over two hours I dumped three 30 round magazines into the nest…their outrage evident, with at least 100 swarming the nest seeking revenge. The nest is looking a bit savaged, and in the following days it will only get worse.

      If they discover my hide during an attack, I will need a butt-load of Ivermectin, and a kind word or two.

      • Blackbird July 8, 2023 at 7:51 pm #

        Ely, don’t rely on sharpshooting to protect you from wasps. Ninety rounds, one-hundred plus swarming, snarling, outraged wasps? Bad odds.

        A few years ago, a colony of white-faced wasps (Dolichovespula maculata) built a nest under my mailbox. Discovered them one day when I went to pick up the mail and 2 flew into my car. I rolled down all the windows, cranked the A/C fan, and floored it down the road for a quarter mile. Blew them out the windows.

        Didn’t want that to happen to my mailcarrier, so I took a small 2×4 and smashed the nest, and its builders.

        A couple weeks later, and I’m walking past my tomato garden – and BAM! BAM! Like a couple of bullets to the rear, right corner of my head. “I’ve been Kennedyed!”, was my first thought. But then I had a few more thoughts.

        Found the nest – a lovely work of art about 1.5 feet long by 1 foot wide – in my big silver maple tree (Acer saccharinum). Set up my 8-foot stepladder underneath. Connected my garden hose to my 3-foot watering wand, which I duct taped to my rake, which I ran up through the top step of my ladder. (I can send a diagram if that helps…) Turned it on and blasted those sons’a’bitches – for 2 hours.

        Stood underneath wearing a hoodie, motorcycle helmet and goggles, and leather gloves. And smashed every one of those little bastards as it fell, waterlogged, from the tree to the ground.

        Got another wasp nest under my current mailbox. I may have to finally invest in ivermectin.

        • Islander July 8, 2023 at 11:16 pm #

          You can get a Black Flag spray can that will take care of that wasps’ or hornets’ or yellow jackets’ nest.

          You can set the nozzle so it shoots a high-speed stream right at the nest.

          But do wear protective clothing.

          Many of the beasties will be killed in the nest, but some will come out and buzz around dazed but still ready to roll . . .

          • benr July 9, 2023 at 10:48 am #

            IF you are in a safe spot for a little fire action…WD-40 hose the nest down with it and light it on fire.
            Very satisfying watching them burn and I don’t say this lightly of any of God creatures but wasps and yellowjackets are from the other guy..

          • Night Owl July 10, 2023 at 8:40 am #

            The wasps in my part of Germany are incredibly aggressive. Have wondered if they are the infamous “Africanized” version.

            They will chase you for a good distance and I have had many of them just randomly land on me and sting me for no reason.

        • elysianfield July 9, 2023 at 7:37 pm #

          Bird,
          All men, all right thinking men, realize that destroying these nests is doing God’s work. I have heard it said that three things that God should never have allowed were flies, wasps, and Jehovah’s Witnesses….

          Well, the Germans did their best with the Witnesses, and he has delivered the wasps into our hands…..

        • Blackbird July 9, 2023 at 8:04 pm #

          Why I used water to knock down a wasp’s nest, and a 2×4 to kill the wasps:

          Why not Black Flag? I try to never introduce poisons into the environment, especially when it is the natural environment that I am fighting with.

          Why not fire? The nest was 16 to 20 feet up in a tree (a lovely silver maple). I’d have needed a flamethrower, and that would have probably caught the tree on fire – and the tree was right next to the power lines… And I don’t have a flamethrower (well, not “officially”…)

          Why not earth? I tried throwing stones, and found I throw like a girl – a crippled girl with a broken arm.

          Why not wind? It’s difficult to summon a tornado to hit such a small target – and my house was right next door…

          Plus, revenge is so delicious when served cold and wet.

          What God wants: If I had the last housefly, deer fly, horse-fly, blow fly, or botfly busy crawling around vomiting on my knee, I would most certainly smash the little fucker and endure the scorn of all hard-core “environmentalists”.

          Wasps: I only escalate to killing when it gets personal.

          Jehovah’s Witnesses: I don’t celebrate holidays either.

          Mosquitoes have caused me immeasurably more torment, but I have developed a grudging respect for them.

          Jarek,
          Have used shotguns in the past, 22 cal, using birdshot, and very effective. Hand grenades? Got me thinking. Hand grenades, of course, are very expensive, and require exotic licensing from the government.

          But what of Bangalore Torpedoes? Doable. A 20 foot pole with an M80 attached to an electric fuse…This can be very easily done, and could prove spectacular.

      • elysianfield July 9, 2023 at 12:44 pm #

        Bird, Islander, ben, et al;

        I, with WAY too much time on my hands have delivered to various nests, over various years, hell in various forms. The Barra was purchased for exactly this scenario. When I first observed the nest, I was elated, and immediately began planning my assault.

        Over the years, I have used fire, chemicals (diesel being the best), 22 cal shot charges, and even built a nefarious device for their benefit…a 20″ weed eater (Saint take note). The weed eater takes about a day to kill them all, but very satisfying…used it twice, and hundreds of bodies evident…it only works on nests in the ground, however…hence the Barra.

        There is something very satisfying about laying siege to one of these big, dangerous nests. I am always victorious. My only regret is not hearing the lamentations of their women….

        • benr July 9, 2023 at 7:36 pm #

          Yes!!

      • SpeedyBB July 9, 2023 at 10:04 pm #

        I have always been attracted to liquid nitrogen spray as an effective way to rid the joint of wasps, red ants and other claimjumpers.

        Send the bums to the Arctic. Freeze ’em out.

        You have to be quite cautious with the stuff (some chef in Europe lost his hands monkeying around with a souffle or some fancy dish and it blew up). But it is environmentally harmless.

        Wasps never knew what hit ’em. Just be sure and stay upwind when you let ’em have it.

      • MrMangoOnMyShoulder July 10, 2023 at 8:13 am #

        If you’re choosing to do battle with wasps via firearm, I would go with a 12-gauge shotgun slug. That would take most of them out in one shot, and the nest certainly wouldn’t exist anymore. Not saying it would be my first choice though.

    • socialisthater July 9, 2023 at 10:24 am #

      Ever notice how the leftist scum always disparage Ivermectin? Well, my physician has used it to treat COVID and has seen very good results in most of those who took it. He is actually quite knowledgeable about Ivermectin and how it works because he also happens to be from a ranching and horse-raising family. He was also educated as an M.D. before universities decided to train obedient morons to be M.D.’s.

      Interesting. Mosquito bites usually don’t trouble me very much, as the inflammation passes off in about 30 minutes, but spider bites always become very inflamed and are very slow to heal. I’m not allergic to poison ivy and have often hand-weeded it. Neither my kids nor my ex-husband was allergic to it either. We used to do a lot of hiking and camping, and would sometimes walk through waist-high patches of poison ivy with no ill effects whatsoever. Poison ivy is literally everywhere, around here. It grows everywhere along the roadsides. I have a plant growing under the porch steps that peeks through periodically, till I cut it back.

      One of my herbalist friends claims that shiso, or Japanese beefsteak plant, is a good remedy for poison ivy, if you eat a few leaves. She is allergic to seafood and says that including it in seafood dishes prevents an allergic reaction. She also says that’s the reason it is used in so much Oriental seafood cuisine. Obviously, I have never been able to try this remedy. Shiso is easily grown. In fact, it is wildly invasive.

      I have Ivermectin tablets that I ordered online, but maybe I’ll pick up some of the injectible kind.

      • SpeedyBB July 9, 2023 at 10:06 pm #

        Shiso is also quite fragrant and tasty. Eat it with sushi.

    As far as I know, we don’t yet have artificial intelligence. What we got is some computers with very complicated and detailed programming. Programs are merely electromagnetic instructions that operate on different parts of the computer.They have the intelligence of a rock, but can perform tasks so well that many people think they are intelligent, but they’re not conscious.

    Some day we will develop much more advanced neural networks such that it is possible – maybe – that a machine could achieve self-awareness. The jury is out on that.

    There’s a next step in development where a non-conscious machine has such advanced programming a person can’t tell whether the machine is self-aware or not. Scientists will have to spend a lot of time and effort to determine if a machine is truly conscious. Testing has been developed to see if a machine is alive (mentally). It is called a Turing Test.

    The media has been invested in describing true AI, as anyone can see or read books and novels, but so far it’s all science fiction.

    • jim July 9, 2023 at 1:46 pm #

      “What we got is some computers with very complicated and detailed programming.”

      However, what we now appear to have in AI (at this stage of development) is the capability to generate or create something that programmers did not program or that programmers did not expect to be there.

      One famous example is an AI taught to answer questions in English but simply by increasing compute power it began to answer questions in Persian without being programmed to gain that ability.

      What exactly is going on here?

      • Qwibqwib July 10, 2023 at 4:13 pm #

        I would have to see the program to know for sure what is “going on”. I would be very surprised, however, to find true AI. It is likely as described above, a very complex program.

    It pisses me off that the WMBH series will not be produced by a major studio with a major director and a mega budget. It really needs all of that to make a major impact and do it justice. Produced with a tiny budget, it will only appeal to friends and relatives of the makers. It is a perfect story for a blockbuster mini series. Dammit.

      Talking of Twatter, I joined up recently when they stopped me reading as a ‘guest’. Then I got locked out and had to do lots of verification, in the form of daft tests, none of which worked. Then it went back to normal and I was able to read comments again.

      Yesterday and today, I am locked out of my account – again. I have never written a word on Twatter, so I have no idea why this is happening, but I refuse to do any more of their ‘verification’ nonsense, which did nothing last time but waste my time.

          I’m getting the impression my laptop is under surveillance/attack! Despite using a VPN. Maybe that’s paranoid, but, in addition to Twitter, since this morning my comments on UKC are showing greyed out (it’s certainly not down to the folks at UKC) – I don’t think they can be read by anyone else. And I signed on to MSN news to be able to comment on there and it won’t let me comment either. It tells me to sign in to comment, but when I do, it just tells me to sign in again, repeatedly. So no comments. I know they censor madly on there, from what people say in their comments, but sometimes you just want to say something to the normies.

          Perhaps the Guardian has reported my email address to the 77th Brigade for writing them snarky emails!

    • JohnAZ July 9, 2023 at 10:36 am #

      SCOTUS just told the Mob they cannot censor the social medias.

      Then the Mob said that they would continue doing it anyway, in spite of the Supreme Court.

      Next will be an attempt to load the SC with additional liberals.

      The Left are pushing and pushing their socialist, autocratic, totalitarian agenda. Getting what they want will destroy the US Constitution.

      Rule of men, no more rule by law. Liberals that follow the Mob are traitors to the tenets of the United States.

      It is hard to see the takeover of the US government by the Mob.

      Question. Joseph Kennedy was the patriarch of the Boston Irish Mob and put in sons, one successfully in charge of the US government. Theories say that the Italian Mob, incensed by Bobby’s investigations, bumped them off.

      Has the US government been a contest of power between different groups of the Mob? Is RFK, Jr, the next attempt, what is his affiliation with old Joseph Mob?

      Was Trump connected to a Mob or is he an independent that all parts of the Mob want to erase? I have always thought that he made his money in spite of the NYC Mob, so is part of his motivation to destroy the national Mobs?

      • JohnAZ July 9, 2023 at 10:39 am #

        If so, is he a latter day edition of the Kennedy brothers, trying to tear down the Mob’s control of the USA, and will the same result happen?

      • SpeedyBB July 9, 2023 at 10:16 pm #

        I was always under the impression that the Kennedy clips were payoffs for a double-cross. Our colorful Sicilian compatriots helped turn West Virginia (also Illinois?) to JFK in an extremely close election.

        Then Bobby got busy chewing Hoffa’s ass.

        Amazing Irish confidence, to go after those who gave you a boost.

            Mick, I’ve written before that it is suspected that SoftStarLight is Jarek’s sockpuppet. Also, if you look at the archives, you may find other nicknames that have that oh-so-special ‘Jarek’ signature, like Vlad and maybe Janos (both have last names).

            Jarek and/or previous incarnations was kicked off this site.

            You may have noticed that Jarek and SoftStarLight go on this frequent back-and-forth in a kind of mutual support. This is of course handy when one wants to further one’s ideas and make them seem more accepted/acceptable than they may actually be.

          • SoftStarLight July 9, 2023 at 3:33 pm #

            You really are paying a lot of attention to the matter aren’t you Zaz lol. Your obsession is flattering, really. But I wouldn’t necessarily characterize myself as a sockpuppet. Though there is a lot of reality to the whole idea of imprinting. Like, if you’re around someone long enough they become part of you. It’s too bad you can’t respect me as an individual. But at the same time its not like this story hasn’t happened before. In any event, it simply doesn’t change the fact that Eric Clapton’s name is Eric Clapton. And it’s honestly weird that someone would pronounce it Clapner but fine. I said it was good to know. What else do you want from me?

          • The Man They Call Zazelle July 9, 2023 at 4:00 pm #

            What’s interesting, and seems rather revealing, is that you don’t actually deny my suspicion outright:

            “But I wouldn’t necessarily characterize myself as a sockpuppet.” ~ SoftStarLight

            Necessarily?

            In any case, I have every right to suspect something and say so of course, especially where it can affect people’s perceptions and sense of reality/truth and on a site I participate on as well where the one-in-question, likely under different nicknames to boot, has been previously kicked off this site.

            Incidentally, did you ever respond to Q. Shtik’s recent comment/question to the effect that you’ve never mentioned your children since your ‘arrival’ or did you quietly skip over it?

            I realize that it would be tough to be manage various sockpuppets while having to field different kinds of things like that.

            Back in the 90s Bill Clinton’s Surgeon General Jocelyn Elders was complimenting Eric Clapton for a reason I don’t remember, but she said Clapner instead of Clapton.

            Rush Limbaugh had a lot of fun with it. I thought more of you would remember this, but it was almost thirty years ago.

        That’s Eric Clapton CBE. During the Covid scam Clapton and Van Morrison stood up and were anti-lockdown anti-mask.

        “In August 2021, Clapton released the single “This Has Gotta Stop” and an accompanying music video. It was described as a protest song against COVID-19 lockdowns, vaccinations, and contains lyrical and visual statements against what Clapton sees as the erosion of civil liberties as the result of lockdown policies.”

            Yep. Of course, you know this, but for those who don’t….For about two weeks after the Oxford vaxx he could not use his arms and hands. Specifically, from the elbows down he had no feeling. He thought he’d never be able to play guitar again.

            But he’s a hater for speaking out. How dare he! How dare he!

            With some guidance from my anarchistic perceptual superpower, early on in the CV19 ‘demic, I found everything so surreal that it was a no-brainer for me to avoid, reject and/or ignore pretty much everything the C19 surrealists were advising, etc..

            Also, thanks in part to the Offguardian site that published an article about what to say to the gatekeepers (usually a security guard at the door) about why I am not wearing a mask, save for only two exceptional instances, I didn’t wear a mask.

          I believe Clapton is one who has stated that he had had a very serious side effect from the jab.

          Something that affected his arms, I think.

          • GreenAlba July 9, 2023 at 5:14 pm #

            I think it was some kind of peripheral neuropathy. It hasn’t entirely gone, as far as I’m aware, so he still suffers from it.

            He’s supposed to take one for the team and say nothing about it, of course, since that is what passes for public health ‘morality’ these days.

    In France, the situation was calming a bit, but last night in an historic town in NE France some miscreant torched a 16th century Catholic Church. Apparently it went up quick, as you can well imagine, being 5 centuries old. Think of the generations who worshipped there, were baptized, married, and buried in the churchyard. No matter, France isn’t a Catholic country any longer, or even a Christian country. They’ll tell you that themselves. Time to worship something else, but what? Anti Racism? Climate Change Doctrine? Islam is waiting in the wings, and Catholic Churches throughout France can easily be converted into Mosques, as chapels are being converted into Mosques all across the UK.

    Meanwhile, the US will be sending cluster munitions to the Ukraine army. Apparently these cluster bombs are nasty pieces of work ~ the gloves have come off. An obvious question which our media isn’t asking is “Does Russia have cluster munitions as well?” And if so, is this a green light for the Russian Army to deploy them, and with their overwhelming superiority in artillery & airpower, would this be bad news for Ukraine? I dare say at some point the Russian people will come to realize that these different weapons systems introduced into eastern Ukraine by the west are sent there to kill their sons in great numbers, and to take umbrage to the fact.

    • Islander July 8, 2023 at 11:18 pm #

      And if so, is this a green light for the Russian Army to deploy them, and with their overwhelming superiority in artillery & airpower, would this be bad news for Ukraine?

      Given that Russia’s main goal is to pacify Ukraine and neutralize the western threat, I would think not, but then again, you never know. Certainly the western lapdog press will accuse them of it whether they do or not, so maybe that’s the point of all this? At some point Putin’s going to have to draw a hard red line and actually enforce it, so maybe this is the thing that finally prompts that? Seems like we’ve been saying that forever, though. I think we’re going to see tactical nukes deployed in theater (at least) by the fall if this keeps up. Remains to be seen who will use them first, not that it will matter all that much. Let’s just hope they’ve got a strong contingent of strategic models on standby for DC, which is the source of all this madness in the first place.

      The Kiev regime has been using cluster bombs on the Donbass for years. They attack civilians in the cities, especially Donetsk City.
      Little children and dogs are blown up frequently by the petal mines they spread over the city.

      They launch the weapons from Avdeeka, which is close to Donetsk City.

      The Russians need to root out the Ukies infesting Avdeeka. Why are they taking so long? It is frustrating.
      Send Elysian Fields to do the deed. He’s up to the task of relentless attack of evil creatures.

      The US is sending them cluster bombs because they ran out of other 155 ammunition, apparently.

      Not necessarily. E Pluribus Unum is dissolving quickly.

      Things will change when more things split us apart than hold us together.

      It is happening now.

      Troubled? Maybe fatally.

      Just a thought. European colonialism occurred when manufacturers in Europe wanted raw materials and had to get resources from colonies around the world. The US was a colony once. China sorta resembles the colonialist powers today and is using the US as an economic colony. As in the 16th through the 19th centuries, economic power and consequent wealth will flow to the manufacturing nations.

      We are watching history rhyme as China buys the US.

      Are we trying to fight off the Chinese? Heck now, we are selling the USA to them. Actively!!!

      Are Biden and the Mob traitors to the USA?

        If and when our US car culture implodes – it’s quite possible that most of our autos will be purchased by China and shipped overseas. Maybe they’ll purchase all the scrap iron we’ll have laying around everywhere and manufacture bicycles for the former US middle class. Once upon a time China was on bicycles, and I’m sure most of us have seen some old photos of China with streets teeming with thousands upon thousands of bike riders. Most everyone rode a model called the “Flying Pigeon”. I think more of these were made than of any other bike model in history.

        As the volksvagen is the “people’s car” – we’ll have a “people’s bicycle”. What would we call it? I’m trying to think of a bird. “Flying cuckoo” maybe. Flying starling? Flying sparrow. The sparrows were the birds that picked the seeds out of the horseshit in the streets and ate it. Pigeons are city birds. If China makes our bicycles then they get to call ’em whatever they like in the catalogues. Or they could make a model with carbon fiber frames using past its expiration date carbon fiber. China could call that one the “Flying Titan”.

        • SpeedyBB July 9, 2023 at 10:29 pm #

          China will NEVER take over the USA or even some or one city in the USA. This is a nearly impossible feat and China is not up to the task. Just a cursory examination of the math involved will show you that this is an impossible scenario. I don’t understand why people are so scared of China. They are LITERALLY a paper tiger. There is absolutely NO intention among the Chinese to “take over the USA” in any form. They simply want us the F#$% out of their backyard. It’s pretty understandable really. IF the USA fails, China will sit back and watch it burn. Prove me wrong…

        • Qwibqwib July 10, 2023 at 5:50 pm #

          Not to mention the demographic decline that China is going through right now. Some studies show the population will decline as much as 20% by 2050. This on top of the shift from an average age of 38.4 (c.2022) to an average age of 46 by 2050.

          The average Chinese male is barely military age right now, this minute. They better strike very soon, while the iron is hot or they will lose their chance (they never really had one btw).

          ROFL!! The USA has a YOUNGER average age than China! Average age here in the US of A is 37 (c.2022) and will rise to 41 in 2050. Chinese conquest of USA is a pipe dream…

    JHK just shed light on what has happened to the liberals and Democrat Party. They have fully transitioned into a brainwashed mess of miscreants following a Socialist ideology that mixes the very worst poisons of Communist Socialism and Fascist Socialism into to a toxic brew of ideological sludge that could destroy even the strongest free society. Worst of all, the Trump-hating scum floating at the top of this sludge are so brainwashed and programmed that only in death will they escape their toxic ideology, just like the brainwashed Nazis and hardcore Stalinists that preceded them. The only question is how much death and suffering among innocent people will they cause before they meet their own demise.
