      Have you noticed how quickly our Ukraine problem went away, vanished, phhhhttttt? At least from the top of US news media websites. The original idea, as cooked-up by departed State Department strategist Victoria Nuland, was to make Ukraine a problem for Russia, but instead we made it a problem for everybody else, especially ourselves in the USA, since it looked like an attempt to kick-start World War Three. Now she is gone, but the plans she laid apparently live on.

      Our Congress so far has resisted coughing up another $60-billion for the Ukraine project — most of it to be laundered through Raytheon (RTX), General Dynamics, and Lockheed Martin — so instead “Joe Biden” sent Ukraine’s President Zelensky a few reels of Laurel and Hardy movies. The result was last week’s prank: four groups of mixed Ukraine troops and mercenaries drawn from sundry NATO members snuck up to the border of Russia’s Belgorod region to capture a nuclear weapon storage facility while Russia held its presidential election. I suppose it looked good on the war-gaming screen.

     Alas, the raid was a fiasco. Russian intel was on it like white-on-rice. The raiders met ferocious resistance and retreated into a mine-field — this was the frontier, you understand, between Kharkov (Ukr) and Belgorod (Rus) — where they were annihilated. The Russian election concluded Sunday without further incident. V.V. Putin, running against three other candidates from fractional parties, won with 87 percent of the vote. He’s apparently quite popular.

    “Joe Biden,” not so much here, where he is pretending to run for reelection with a party pretending to go along with the gag. Ukraine is lined up to become Afghanistan Two, another gross embarrassment for the US foreign policy establishment and “JB” personally. So, how long do you think V. Zelensky will be bopping around Kiev like Al Pacino in Scarface?

     This time, poor beleaguered Ukraine won’t need America’s help plotting a coup. When that happens, as it must, since Mr. Z has nearly destroyed his country, and money from the USA for government salaries and pensions did not arrive on-time, there will be peace talks between his successors and Mr. Putin’s envoys. The optimum result for all concerned — including NATO, whether the alliance knows it or not — will be a demilitarized Ukraine, allowed to try being a nation again, though in a much-reduced condition than prior to its becoming a US bear-poking stick. It will be on a short leash within Russia’s sphere-of-influence, where it has, in fact, resided for centuries, and life will go on. Thus, has Russia at considerable cost, had to reestablish the status quo.

     Meanwhile, Saturday night, “Joe Biden” turned up at the annual Gridiron dinner thrown by the White House [News] Correspondents’ Association, where he told the ballroom of Intel Community quislings: “You make it possible for ordinary citizens to question authority without fear or intimidation.” The dinner, you see, is traditionally a venue for jokes and jibes. So, this must have been a gag, right? Try to imagine The New York Times questioning authority. For instance, the authority of the DOJ, the FBI, the DHS, and the DC Federal District court. Instant hilarity, right?

     As it happens, though, today, Monday, March 18, 2024, attorneys for the State of Missouri (and other parties) in a lawsuit against “Joe Biden” (and other parties) will argue in the Supreme Court that those government agencies above, plus the US State Department, with assistance from the White House (and most of the White House press corps, too), were busy for years trying to prevent ordinary citizens from questioning authority. For instance, questioning the DOD’s Covid-19 prank, the CDC’s vaccination op, the DNC’s 2020 election fraud caper, the CIA’s Frankenstein experiments in Ukraine, the J6 “insurrection,” and sundry other trips laid on the ordinary citizens of the USA.

     Specifically, Missouri v. Biden is about the government’s efforts to coerce social media into censoring any and all voices that question official dogma. The case is about birthing the new concept — new to America, anyway — known as “misinformation” — that is, truth about what our government is doing that cannot be allowed to enter the public arena, making it very difficult for ordinary citizens to question authority. The government will apparently argue that they were not coercing, they were just trying to persuade the social media execs to do this or that.

     Maybe one of the justices might ask how it came to be that a Chief Counsel of the FBI, James Baker, after a brief rest-stop at a DC think tank, happened to take the job as Chief Counsel at Twitter in 2020. That was a mighty strange switcheroo, don’t you think? And ordinary citizens were not generally informed of it until the fall of 2022, when Elon Musk bought Twitter and delved into its workings.

    questioning received ‘truth’. maybe us oppositional nerds will someday have our day…

    • Socrates-Detroit March 18, 2024 at 9:55 am #

      “The optimum result for all concerned — including NATO, whether the alliance knows it or not — will be a demilitarized Ukraine…. in a much reduced state.”

      On THAT, I completely agree with JHK. Unfortunately, as he writes earlier in this column, the US has not abandoned its plans to foment problems in THE Ukraine. It’s just removed the face of this nefarious plan–Victoria Nuland, who is a key establishment operative–NeoCon, Zionist, evil.

      The Ukraine has receded from the news cycle partly because it has gotten old, partly because after two years, the fact that Ukraine is losing and will lose cannot be managed.

      Then, there’s the question of how much the US MIC (Military Industrial Complex) can support both the mischief in Ukraine, and the ongoing extermination of the Palestinians. The latter has also taken up some news space that went the Ukraine.

      While the slaughter of the Palestinians continues (and if there was an actual cease-fire today, thousands more Palestinians are condemned to a rather awful of death by starvation or disease or succumbing to war wounds, in addition to the 31,000 plus already dead), America’s (and the West’s position) in the world declines.

      Is it only a matter of time before the US government, ratchets things up into HOT world war?

      That is a good way, maybe the best way to distract people from inflation, from the effects of mRNA shots, from the broken health care system (for many, not all).

      Worse, people like Nuland, who are still running the show, may actually believe they can WIN, and this will be a good way to re-assert “US Primacy”.

      It didn’t work for Britain in WW1. Britain had the US bail it out. Today, no one will bail out the US. If the US sparks a hot war that spirals out of control (via Israel in Lebanon, or Iran, or Taiwan, or the South Pacific, or Ukraine/Russia), the US government won’t win.

      But the US public will be the BIG losers.

      • Land of the Banned March 18, 2024 at 10:17 am #

        NYT, WaPo, and CNN are all playing up the “fixed election” angle today in a typical pot-kettle-black maneuver we’ve come to expect from the US propaganda apparatus. I expect Stalin references to go mainstream any day now. Same as it ever was. Used to at least be creative. Now all we get is 60’s and 70’s era reruns.

        Also, funny watching Biden squirm trying to square the Israeli operation in Pali with world opinion. Biden says, “Knock it off, you’re making me look bad!” Bibi replies, “Who the fuck are you and who cares how you look anyway?”

      • JohnAZ March 18, 2024 at 10:24 am #

        Read a story on Apple News that the Gaza Strip Palestinians are starting to blame Hamas for their woes, saying that they are not living up to agreements they made and they have just used the Gaza Strip people.

        I will bet the Israelis are talking to these people.

        • justanotherguy March 18, 2024 at 10:41 am #

          matt bracken is suggesting the planned port of gaza is just another way to divert attention from ukr, and will be the means of importing gazans out of the middle east, at best, another beiruit 1982, with gulf of tonkin overtones.

          care to guess where?

          • tuco22 March 18, 2024 at 11:00 am #

          • Beryl of Oyl March 18, 2024 at 11:02 am #

            This is what I have been saying all along, this war didn’t make sense, one sign is that they knew where the leaders of Hamas are, then I find out that it’s because Blinken said don’t worry we aren’t concerned with extradition.

            I’m glad more people are onto that pier idea, that should have been a big red flag.

            I don’t believe the reason for the port is the people who are starving, I belive it’s the other way around.

            There’s a Palestinian activist on X complaining that the food being dropped there is low quality.

            That’s how dumb these “activists” are. There isn’t enough food, it is being stolen and sold, but the quality is what he talks about.

          • benr March 19, 2024 at 8:39 am #

            The food is low quality reminds me of Ethiopians don’t eat rice.
            Russia dropped tons of rice during one of the famines in the 80’s in Ethiopia.
            The above was the response.
            Probably because they could not steal the rice and sell it easily.

        • benr March 19, 2024 at 8:36 am #

          Or the reality has set in that Hamas has used them very badly.
          Even the dumbest idiots can see that eventually.
          They put up with Yasir Arafat using them badly for how long?
          The Palestinians have to be the second stupidest people on the face of the planet right behind Joe Biden supporters.

      • Cavepainter March 18, 2024 at 10:48 am #

        Get over it, Israel is defending 20th century values derived from our Western Enlightenment against 14th century beliefs of its neighbors. Taking your position WWII should have ended by sacrifice of half-a-million US draftees rather than use of the nuclear bomb.

        • BackRowHeckler March 18, 2024 at 11:12 am #

          Well put, Cavepainter.

          If for nothing else I’d like to see the IDF wrap this up pretty soon if for nothing else to put an end to the stupid chants in the streets of London & NYC about ‘Palastinas’ and absurd rhymes ending in ‘Genocide’.

          The fact is, Hamas Sewed the Wind, and must now reap the Whirlwind.

          Yesterday the IDF located and destroyed a massive tunnel underneath Gaza. It seems the main job in Gaza all these years has been tunnel building, with wages being paid by US & UN suckers.

          • Beryl of Oyl March 18, 2024 at 11:24 am #

            I see grown men chanting and acting thuggish in major cities. These men could be over there helping the people they claim to care about.

            “The fact is, Hamas Sewed the Wind, and must now reap the Whirlwind”.

            What a great poetic image! Can’t you just imagine someone ‘sewing the wind’? My two grandsons (ages 6 & 3) do that sort of imagining all the time.

            BRH,
            Both you and I have been horrified by stories of Americans visiting Israel being spat upon. I have it on good authority* that those Americans who were spat upon by those Israeli citizens were all, unknown to themselves at the time, on fire! And…and the spittle was the first line of defense, as the second required unbuttoning one’s fly.

            *Maybe…who knows?

        • TruthSeeker1986 March 18, 2024 at 11:23 am #

          @Cavepainter

          LOL Israel has also fucked over the West and is responsible for why Europe and America both are disappearing. Add on top of the fact people like you fail to realize this but keep pretending that Israel is the side of good when clearly they are not. Israel is a Mafia governed state that strongly HATES! Any of you who happen to be white, but I guess that’s okay with you so long as they kill all those Muslims you hate. The very Muslims who are going to blow your ass up first chance they get because you support a bunch of people who are kicking and throwing them out of their own lands.

          • Beryl of Oyl March 18, 2024 at 11:50 am #

            Truth, there is a lot of hate on both sides in that conflict.

            As far as hating Israel for kicking Muslims off their own land, I also see Muslims ready to desert the Middle East at the slightest opportunity.

            The US uses Israel and Israel uses us back.

          • TruthSeeker1986 March 18, 2024 at 12:21 pm #

            @Beryl of Oyl

            Either way no one should want Israel to overtake the whole of Middle East unless they want their own country to end up the new Middle East with the left over people flooding into America.
            Once America is 80% Third world, that’s it.

            The globalist have won. None of these useless people are going to make America or Europe better places. I remember when I was doing security, every single day I had to walk by homeless encampments….. You would think these conditions would make the whole country raging mad. But it’s almost like people WANT to live in these horrible conditions.

            Plus I don’t think Muslims want to desert their own country. They just want to convert everywhere else into the Middle East. Which is why when they move into these other countries they start trying to force their own belief system onto the rest. Their women still walk around in Hijabs. It’s obvious the reason for them invading these countries is so they can take over.

          • Jarek March 18, 2024 at 12:57 pm #

            Well said. Whatever they do to them, they can and will do to us eventually.

            How long before Whites are put in reservations? If we are even that lucky?

          With all respect, Israel is not…Old Testament values?

          Perhaps.

          • Cavepainter March 18, 2024 at 2:12 pm #

            Old Testament Values: wow, now that’s a mixed bag as diverse and ranging as the countless store-front church denominations springing up across America, numbered among were the Branch Davidians and Jone’s Guyana Jones Town disaster.

          • Islander March 18, 2024 at 3:02 pm #

            ““Get over it, Israel is defending 20th century values derived from our Western Enlightenment””

            LOL.
            Have you read the Talmud lately?

            As for 20th Century values, one of those is racial equality or at least “no racial bias.” Whether you believe it that or not is immaterial because it is in fact what I said. .

            One thing for sure: Zionistan does not believe in racial equality, either between the Jews and Goyim or between Ashkenazim and Mizrahim.

            For a pleasant eye-opening experience, I highly recommend Three Worlds, the memoir by the historian Avi Shlaim, professor emeritas of history at Oxford University.

          • elysianfield March 18, 2024 at 5:14 pm #

            Cave,
            I was suggesting that Israel, certainly NOT a secular state, cares more for God’s deeding the land in the Lavant, boreso than arbitrary lines on a map, or t he odd treaty, or casual promise by other countries.

            If..If I had a book that proved to me that God gave me the right to any property you own, I might suggest you get the hell off my lawn….

            Yep they are doing you a GREAT FAVOR. By flooding your country with Africans and Muslims and praying that the men erase whites from existence by breeding with the females. Yep they are doing you are GREAT FAVOR with all their weird “BLACKED” pornography as they have taught white men to hate themselves, offer up their wives to screw blacks in front of them while they shout dehumanizing racist slurs at their husbands to humiliate them. God Bless the Chosen Ones for all the good they’ve done for America and Europe both while they point and laugh at you. But don’t you worry, they’ll be sending more Muslim men to your country real soon.

        • Paula D March 18, 2024 at 12:32 pm #

          OR, the war could have ended by the US accepting the surrender terms of Japan, which they did only after they dropped the bombs.

          The war with Germany, of course, was already over, thanks to the USSR.

          • Cavepainter March 18, 2024 at 2:02 pm #

            Hmmm, Russia supplied and supported otherwise by Uncle Sam. And by what political calculus did Stalin, who’d murdered millions of his own citizenry during the 1920s-30s, seem the option of choice against Hitler/Mussolini before their respective campaigns of mass murder had started?

            Then as well, would the world be better today if Patton had gotten his preference of taking out Russia’s Stalinist reign, or if McArthur had gotten his preference of nuking the Maoist army as resolution to the Korean war?

          • chimayred March 19, 2024 at 7:00 am #

            Oh please. The only reason the USSR was able to turn the Germans back was because of the United States and allies invading France, bombing the hell out of Germany, and invading Italy at enormous cost all drawing, massive troops and material from the eastern front.

          • benr March 19, 2024 at 8:46 am #

            Stalin really did not defeat Hitler it was the Russian winters, muddy springs and the invention of radiator fluid and yes Americans flooding into western Europe with massive amounts of food, military gear and personnel.

            Had Hitler not attacked Russia and started a two front war I am not sure the US could have actually won.
            Lest we forget the US was pretty pro- Fascist Germany at the time.

          “Israel is defending 20th century values derived from Western Enlightenment”

          by using 20th century techniques to remove or liquidate the natives.

          OK. Got it.

          I guess it’s like comparing the Turks vs. Armenians and Germans vs. Jews…

          The 20th century students of Western Enlightenment, the best-educated populace in the world, used Zyklon B and kept better records. Those 14th century Turks, who reached the outskirts of Vienna, didn’t keep such good records, and used guns, bayonets, or just marched the Armenians to the desert and left them there. I don’t associate the Holocaust with rape or sexual abuse (at least not yet–perhaps the Israelis will add that to their victimization list later), whereas I do associate the Turks with that. But we DO KNOW that the Israelis enjoy sexually harassing or abusing their Palestinian captives.

          Is that what you mean by 20th century values?

          And the enlightened US government did torture those “14th century” types in Guantanamo and other places, yes? Or is that just propaganda?

          Or are you talking about such socially enlightened concepts as public homosexuality, public pornography, atheism and agnosticism? Is that what the Israelis are defending from those intolerant Moslems?

          Because the Israelis sure as hell are NOT giving the occupied Palestinians the right to vote (that’s a Western enlightenment concept, right?) or any input in determining how they are governed. The Israelis don’t believe in property rights either. In fact, the ruling Israelis represent 8th century values–that’s 8th century BC.

          And the US taxpayer foots the bill! Even as US debt is exploding! We’ll see how that plays out.

          • benr March 19, 2024 at 8:57 am #

            You have skipped over a very valuable point!

            The Armenians were not attacking the Turks.

            The Armenians did not vote in terrorist organizations to run their country into the ground nor use most of the money to dig tunnels for war and hiding weapons of war.

            Nor did they use their women and children as Human shields for propaganda purposes with a flippant attitude of we can make more if they are killed.

            Nor did they invade another country capture, rape and murder it citizens and drag them through the streets and post videos of them doing this over and over.

            Did the also use tractors, cars, large trucks to murder them Turks every chance they got?

            Were they completely beholden to the Turks for damn near everything while attacking them?

            Are you a Sunni Muslim because you SURE push the propaganda like on?

            Or are you simply a garden variety Marxist because this is talking points of Cultural Marxism 101 which is even worse and scummier even then the Sunni angle.
            I’m not Jewish, not Israeli but I know if Israel loses this we all lose something.

            Palestinians are some of the worst people on this planet for their treatment of each other and everyone around them.
            They are literally brought up indoctrinated to hate everyone and everything as foot soldiers to attack the west.
            If they manage to get here, they use every scam they can and are as bad as any mafia group ever in the history of the world for committing acts of violence and criminality.

          • Anthea March 19, 2024 at 7:27 pm #

            @ Socrates-Detroit:

            Cavepainter’s premise that, “Israel is defending 20th century values derived from our Western Enlightenment against 14th century beliefs of its neighbors,” is remarkably vague, and I’m not at all sure that this is a correct characterization of Israel’s values. E.g., Wikipedia says that, “The Enlightenment’s starting point was the secular world, and included a range of ideas centered on the value of human happiness, the pursuit of knowledge obtained by means of reason and the evidence of the senses, and ideals such as natural law, liberty, progress, toleration, fraternity, constitutional government, and separation of church and state.” I’d say that it would be tough to try to characterize Israel as a torch-bearer of Western Enlightenment, based on this description.

            Indeed, Israel’s territorial claims–which are the premise for its
            very existence–are religious rather than secular. Based on that alone, you could make a pretty good argument that the Israeli belief system is a few thousand years more antiquated than that of its “14th Century neighbors,” and that, if anything, its relations with its neighbors are founded on the perpetuation of hatreds that are anything but modern (due to going back close to 6,000 years), secular, or “enlightened.”

            The whole mentality, if you ask me, is worse than Medieval–and certainly not “secular,” “enlightened,” or tending to promote “ideals such as natural law, liberty, progress, toleration, fraternity.”

            And, as Socrates-Detroit observes, some of us are not entirely behind all of those “20th Century values” to begin with, such as such “socially enlightened concepts as public homosexuality, public pornography, atheism and agnosticism.”

            Frankly, Israel and Jews in general have historically and invariably worked to undermine Western culture and civilization, promoting Bolshevism, atheism, and every kind of vice and sexual degeneracy, and degrading and vulgarizing its arts and literature.

            Representing Israel as some kind of standard-bearer for Western Civilization is risible. It’s exactly the opposite.

          For sure we can’t believe the Palestinians they lie about everything and will inflate that number as much as they can.

          Israel has a reason to low ball that number as well the Marxist rabble chanting in the streets are trying to gain traction.

          For the most part all they seem to do is annoy people to the point of goading them to violence.

    Greetings,

    The problem is this: the people who were telling me that the Russians were defeated and that their forced conscripts had nothing to fight with but shovels while the women and old men tore apart washing machines looking for parts to make missiles won’t admit that they believed any of this.

    They won’t admit other things as well even though FB & Twitter has a record of the things they ran their mouth about. I remind them that their very profile pic was them encapsulated in a frame of “I’ve been vaccinated” like some sick gag from Stephen Colbert.

    It would be no different than if I sat down and told you that Bigfoot and I had coffee and then went out and picked flowers and then two months later pretended that none of that happened.

    God help us.

    All of these political shenanigans are so blatant and excessive that even the liberal news agencies can no longer hide them. At a recent funeral wake for a recently diseased elderly family member, I was surprised to hear the most senior family members wondering how the US can survive. That was startling to me. These are folks in their 80s+.

    Also, on this same trip to Portland, Oregon, I noted Hispanic immigrants everywhere; whereas even 10 years ago this was not the case. But was especially notable was that they “no se hablan ingles.”

However, our Governor is suddenly extremely agitated and is promoting the building of tons of low-cost housing even though we don’t have enough NATIVE homeless to fill all the proposed housing even if they all able to pay low rent.

The official number who were “assisted” with MAiD is sixteen thousand; however, many deaths were attributed to whatever they wished to take refuge from; e.g., cancer, poverty, etc. The government has postponed the criteria “mental illness” until 2027.

      I just saw a picture of my cousins’ youngest daughter.
      She now identifies as them has a picture of herself recently having undergone a double mastectomy at the ripe old age of 23.
      Sitting in bed bound up with no more ample bosom a shame because she was a very good looking young lady at one time.
      Looking back, she had cut off all her hair apparently decided to quit showering for weeks on end had greasy hair and ran around in men’s clothes while her boyfriend wore dresses.

      I always knew she was a little loopy since she went to Cal Arts in Valencia and at one point had a budding career as a ballerina she had an almost full ride scholarship for it.
      Now it is hideous and looks like it has cancer probably from all the testosterone it has been injecting into itself. Almost demonic looking to be honest. went by Gladdie now goes by mak.

      Her mother a hard-core fundamentalist Christian till she hit forty suddenly announced to the world she was queer and that she had suffered severe sexual abuse from various men across her life including her stoner much older husband who poached her at the ripe old age of 15. Then married her long term girlfriend who hates normies and works in a circus of sorts.

      I had no clue any of this was happening.

      She had what I thought was the perfect family three kids two girls one boy and a house in IDAHO.
      Grandma absolutely doted over her till she got knocked up by the scum bag and ruined her perfect 4.3 gpa and was turned into a struggling house frau.

      Her Dad a Wicken priest complete scammer who could not keep it in his pants destroyed his family and her mother basically abandoned her to my Grandparents.

      Needless to say, something has destroyed her life and many lives directly around her.

      The middle daughter seems to be holding it together and the oldest son is solid or so I think.

      I feel like this is a Montel or Jerry Springer episode.

      Demeter, catastrophe is here. The USA has crossed the line on debt as we now pay more to fund the interest of our national debt than we pay on defense spending. They are talking about lowering interest rates but inflation is still rising. One way or the other, things are bleak for the USA. Either they print their way out of the debt which means massive hyper inflation and a devastated economy, or they default on the debt which means a devastated economy.

      I don’t think Vladimir Putin is a good man, however, I do believe that he is a REAL MAN. I also believe that he is beloved by many Russians. I wish we had leadership that were even 1/4 of the man that Putin is.

    ” V.V. Putin, running against three other candidates from fractional parties, won with 87 percent of the vote. He’s apparently quite popular.”

    That’s one of the reasons so many Ukrainians still hate and fear, and want nothing to do with, Mother Russia.

    Putin wins every election, and if he leaves the presidency he stays as prime minister and then comes back, and they even joked in one comedy sketch that if he did not win, the office would just stay vacant for the next six years.

He says nothing about the illegal incarceration of the J6 people who were invited inside the “peoples’ house.”

            When he didn’t fire him after the election, they blamed it on the steal, but he was still president, and he gave Fauci an award on his last day in office.

            Somebody even talked him into the idea of aid to Ukraine in the form of loans that don’t get paid back, and when Mike Johnson said he would consider aid to Ukraine separately from border security, they started screaming about him, but he is only doing what Trump wants.

            They want that pier thing built, and if it takes starving Gazans to do it, so be it.

            It’s funny that Biden mentioned a major public works project in January, to feed the population of Gaza.

          Remember that 85% of the expense side of the federal pie chart are obligations. They must be paid. Only 15% has any possibility of being cut and even it will hurt politically. Any politician saying the answer is to cut, is bullshitting as it would be suicide for them.

          It will be agonizingly long and painful but the answer is to stop the spending rises each year and increase expenditures by less than the rate of inflation. This means less increase in spending by 1-3% a year.

          As this would be the end of the gimme Democrats, as long as they are there, there will continue to be beefy spending every year. They need the illegals to spend on, to show off their largesse. The rest of us, even the rich, will continue to decline until bankruptcy occurs. Not typical bankruptcy but a slow slide of joe Average into poverty as his power of the purse declines with inflation. Look at the states that are vanguards of Blue philosophy right now. Money is deserting them with the middle class quickly. Remaining behind are illegals and impoverished Americans. Dammit, this is what the Dems want.

          If the Federal government was a corporation and had to answer to stock and bond holders, every CEO (president) would have been fired for non-performance.

            I don’t know, JohnAZ. There are solutions. Here’s where I would start were I to have the power to do so.

            1. Close all military bases in foreign countries, bring the military home, put them on the border and slash defense spending by hundreds of billions of dollars.
            2. EPA….gone.
            3. Homeland security…..gone.
            4. Department of Education……gone.
            5. Health and Human Services and the rest of them…..gone.

            If it isn’t explicitly authorized by the Constitution it would be gone, sent to the states to deal with.

            I would probably end up dead, but that is what I would do.

      The smokescreen is that Fani is guilty of adultery or something, so making her break up with her boyfriend fixes everything.

      Sounds stupid, but look how many people believe that the Stormy Daniels case is about whether or not Donald Trump cheated on his wife.

      The Deep State actually has TV shows that measure just how gullible Americans are, and they have been on prime time antenna TV, accessible to the masses, for ages.

      A little-noticed feature of shows like Dateline is that, periodically throughout the show, they ask viewers what they think of the blather they’ve just seen.

      Yes, they measure this stuff. A certain percentage of the public believes the guy making with the histrionics of “oh, I just got back from bowling and found my wife dead on the floor who could have done this?” is nothing but a grieving widower, even after being shown that he just took out extra life insurance on her the month before.

      @Bill of Rights, As for the Fani Willis situation, Jeff Childers’ blog, Coffee and Covid, is worth reading. He’s witty, knowledgeable, and is a lawyer – so he understands the legal aspects and constraints. He’s gone into this in some detail over the last several posts. The law is baffling much of the time, but there are (apparently) reasons for this ruling. It’s not as bad as it looks.

      You been watching too many of the talking heads in the mainstream media. I have heard Trumps “bloodbath” comments and the entire context of what Trump was saying. Trump was referring directly to the automotive industry and what will happen to it if China is allowed to build cars in Mexico and sell them in the USA. US media immediately took that comment out of context and spewed vicious lies. And as always there are plenty of stupid Americans out there to believe it.

      The House forgot all about Habeas Corpus as they took months to imprison J6 rioters with bogus long sentences. We are already a dictatorship that is being run by executive order because Congress is worthless.

      Trump “predicts” a bloodbath if he is not elected and he may be right. This country will never unite again without a war or the equivalent. We are currently on the edge of our own civil war which is going to happen regardless of who gets elected. Our country has too damned many gimmes, economic loads that do not contribute but consume anyway. No economic model can survive with that ideal.

      It IS very interesting that the latest polls show 28% of blacks now favor Trump along with a majority of Latinos. What happened? Biden corruption and non-performance vs. Trump improvement in the lots of both minorities.

        JohnAZ,

        I have heard Trumps “bloodbath” comments and the entire context of what Trump was saying. Trump was referring directly to the automotive industry and what will happen to it if China is allowed to build cars in Mexico and sell them in the USA.

      • tuco22 March 18, 2024 at 11:59 am #

        That’s why the Biden junta (I refer to it that way, now, rather than by the word “administration”) has brought in all the illegals. They have to shore up the black vote, and there aren’t enough gays and lesbians in the US to constitute a sizeable majority.

    • Rain Waters March 18, 2024 at 11:22 am #

      Where exactly did “he” promise a bloodbath if not elected?

      • benr March 19, 2024 at 9:53 am #

        In a speech about Chinese cars made and imported from Mexico destroying what is left of American car manufacturers.
        He promised if he is elected to impose 100% tariffs on these cars.

    • Paula D March 18, 2024 at 12:49 pm #

      Also, he wants Americans to inject bleach. The media said so, said it again, and is still saying it.

    The joke of “Joe Biden” is on us. We are becoming a failed state. As we send fake dollars to a fake country in Europe given to them by a fake president promoted by a fake media one realizes that we are living in a fake world. The only reason we are still able to live eat and breathe is the rest of the world is even more screwed up. The world is run by the “Joe Bidens” out there. No wonder they want to destroy Trump as he represents freedom and independent thought (although sometimes screwed up thoughts).

    • Cankerpuss March 18, 2024 at 10:49 am #

      Loved your comment Mark. It’s all fake. All of it. Let me add to your list.

      1. Our wimin are fake. Faces plastered with paint. Asses and breasts stuffed with saline pouches. Hair colored unnatural pinks, purples, blues and greens. Skin covered with tattoos.
      2. Our men are fake. Gone are the days of true masculine men who told their loud mouthed wimin to shut the hell up. Gone are the days of men who provided for the children they fathered.
      3. People who look like they are rich are so burdened by debt and have no intention of ever paying it off. They own nothing and only owe.
      4. Television. It’s all fake, pretend, lies. How many countless hours do Americans sit on their asses and take in the lies? What does that do to the human brain?
      5. Sports. Gambling and betting are rampant in sports now. So much fake money riding on the outcome of a game. Anyone who believes professional sports are legit in spite of the gambling is naive and foolish.
      6. Music. Listen to Taylor Swift and all you hear is autotune. No real singing. Hip Hop music is nothing more than a base beat with an autotuned perversion of black poetry.
      7. Food. Our food is supposed to be healthy and nutritious but that is fake. Most foods people eat are addictive, induce inflammation and result in obesity. Hence the reason most Americas are walking whales, barely able to hobble from one store scooter to the next.

      It’s all fake. Our entire society is fake. Reality will one day reclaim its throne. I hope I am alive to see it happen.

        Well said adder on Mark1.

        One comment though. Sports is the one glue that holds thing together nationally, whether MLB, NFL, NBA or the Olympics.

        Imagine where the country would be right now without sports.

        The entrance of big money on-line gambling however is about to make sports just another corrupted institution in the country.

        • cowbell81 March 18, 2024 at 11:11 am #

          Imagine how much cleaner and greener the world would be without sports. No more jetting from city to city for games. No more hotel suites that require carbon emissions to operate.

          Just speaking hypothetically here, but I’m surprised that Greta and her ilk haven’t already made this connection and tried to ban all organized sports.

          Cold turkey re: pro sports.

          Vast majority is rigged, lots of $$ on the line.

          I’ll choose the NFL as an example. Huge corporation with plans to take ‘American football’ international.

          But it is rigged.

          How? The refs, a small group of part-timers, are key.

          The athletes, for the most part, are playing a physically demanding sport with high potential for career-ending injuries. Most games will hinge on a few key plays. The referee group makes the calls. Though some calls aren’t too consequential, a couple of key plays going one way or the other changes the direction of the particular game.

          Notice how ‘key’ plays can be ‘decided’ (reviewed?) in NYC when the controversies arise.

          This seeking affirmation from a higher authority helps with the distraction.

          Refs? Some will be quite good (honest), it only takes a few less than honest ones, and there’s always the corporate hq with a vested interest in outcomes to sell the brand and viola… lots of $$ changes hands.

          So… who is running the game (and the table?).

          Did it happen overnight? I suspect no. It has crept in, like so much else in this country, until one day it can’t hide. it is there for anyone who seeks will see.

          Then there’s Ukraine…

          @Jarek, I’ve been saying for years that we need to bring back shame. It usually gets a laugh, as though I must be kidding. But nothing is more effective than shame and humiliation, when they’re genuinely deserved and understood as such. We’ve had an opportunity to see how people behave when we applaud and affirm everything they do. In a broader sense, it’s a very leftist, utopian thing – the belief that there are natural and necessary parts of human experience that are unnecessary and can somehow be eliminated.

          • Jarek March 19, 2024 at 1:07 pm #

            If a, then probably not b.

            If you believe in women voting, you probably don’t believe in the actual use of the scold’s bridle, just as a “metaphor”.

            The final step is a huge one, not a small step for a woman and a giant step for womankind.

          • Jarek March 19, 2024 at 1:08 pm #

            @Jarek, Having seen what has happened since women have had the vote, and most particularly since they’ve really started running the world, I can’t say it has been a good thing in any way. My personal experience has been that there’s one sane woman voter for every fifty sane men. And that’s being generous. I wish I could say otherwise, but lying wouldn’t change anything except to make me into a liar.

            I wouldn’t necessarily blame some things on the women, Rowdypiglet. We’d have to see proper studies done, some of which would seem near impossible if not impossible.
            The world was already moving in a certain direction; women entering the work force and voting and whatnot probably was inevitable from a ‘sociopoliticeconomic’ standpoint. Anyway, things seem to be changing and/or about to change in big ways yet again, as ‘the only constant being change’.

          • SpeedyBB March 22, 2024 at 8:59 am #

            Rowdy, when I first went to Japan, in the early 1960s, and decided I wanted to live there permanently [based on an ignorance of the culture – the more I learned the less attractive it seemed] I was thoroughly inculcated in a “shame culture”.

            It is powerful and not simply “psychological” or “behavioral” – as it can exert serious humiliation on one’s goals and objectives. From the bottom of their society to the apex, the shame factor is an intensive and effective modicum of social control.

            It works.

            Its terrible downside is that aggressive behavior is turned inward. People drink themselves to death or simply decide to commit suicide or go catatonic when there appears to be no way out.

            I haven’t lived there in decades and suspect it may have weakened to an extent but in the corporate and academic worlds it still carries a strong sting.

            Politics? Banking? Not so much. That is where the smart-ass cynics end up.

            Yes and we have people making high salaries spending time on data entry and record keeping and such, and the worst part is they don’t know what they are doing. They are just playing with the printer.

            Secretaries, at the executive level, determine who gets in to see the boss, keep track of when and where the boss will be, how the boss will get there, who needs to be included in meetings, who needs to be excluded, and whether the records being kept comply wit official policy.

Plenty of curves in that formation, with blond curls spilling out underneath their neat caps. The guidon was carrying a Swedish National Flag, but on one side of that was an EU flag, a NATO flag, and an LBGQT Pride flag.

            No, the Swedish army put on a military parade to celebrate joining NATO. They trotted out their crack units. Everybody loves a parade, especially when its long legged beauties, attractive sky blue uniforms, and blonds. I was a little puzzled by the Pride Flag, but look, this is how Sweden rolls. Sweden is proud of its ‘Feminine’ foreign policy, its ‘Feminine’ domestic policy, and its gay friendly, feminized armed forces Alot of this is left over from the days, not long ago, when Swden had a homogeneous, Nordic, Protestant population, and maintained a stance of neutrality. That’s no longer the case; Sweden is hard against a resurgent Russia, is a NATO member, and contains millions of hostile, unassimalated Africans and Muslims within its borders. I suspect a gay friendly, feminized armed forces, and a feminized foreign policy, is a luxury Sweden can no longer afford.

    Our Congress so far has resisted coughing up another $60-billion for the Ukraine project — most of it to be laundered through Raytheon (RTX), General Dynamics, and Lockheed Martin — so instead “Joe Biden” sent Ukraine’s President Zelensky a few reels of Laurel and Hardy movies.

    Thank you!

    It drives me nuts how people can’t see the crime. They “think” that it is just bumbling fools in DC “wasting” tax dollars that are then “spent” and “gone forever” while, of course, it is actually compromised shitbags who must do whatever they’re told to keep the money and pizza flowing lest those pictures become public a la Larry Craig (aka Mr. Widestance) and your new debt becomes obscene profit for every pig at the trough.

    ***
    Zelensky: “Give me another $116B or I’ll cry!”
    ?“Joe Biden”: “Do it!”
    ?Congress: “Done!”
    ?Treasury: “We need another $116B.”
    ?Fed rubs its hands together in maniacal laughter.
    ?Fed: “Done.”
    ?MIC: “Over here!”
    ?Treasury: “Done.”
    ?MIC then sends infinitely over-priced, inventory dumps of killing machines to Ukraine.
    ?MIC then dumps the money into the NYSE.
    Money laundered and doled out.
    Elaborate racketeering theft, plain and simple.

    Just listened to the Oral Arguments for Missouri v Biden, and it did not go well for “Missouri”.
    My two-cents:
    The “Missouri” attorney did not make a compelling case at all.
    The 4 ladies of the court were clearly not buying why he was selling.
    Unless ALL 5 of the men on the court vote in favor of “Missouri” – a most unlikely scenario in my opinion – it’s going down.

        Haiti’s a failing State with outside State intervention. So it doesn’t really have much to do with anarchy/anarchism, except to suggest that States’ failures will inevitably turn up there.

        It’s a bit like if you open the car (car as the State) door and jump out while the car is still moving, You tumble around and maybe you live, maybe not, but eventually when you come to rest, that’s your new equilibrium, or anarchy to be metaphoric.

        Tough shit for the Statists, try as they might to drive straight.

        Kumbaya is possible, incidentally, so fear not, Marlin. Just that it depends on what or whose tribes or villages we are talking about.

        But we’re not there yet in any case. More road-rash for the school of hard knockers appears in the cards. Some people/naked apes only seem to learn from being bitch-slapped silly around the town.

        In any case, right now the State is nowhere near kumbaya, if it ever was (for a brief time in the 1950’s maybe?), and appears to be drifting further from it.

        Oh what to do…

    The sudden urgency to ban Tik Tok and today’s court case. Are they related?

    The war mongers and the Tik Tok haters look like they might be the same people, I haven’t checked that closely.

    There are some how believe the orders to ban Tik Tok came from Israel.

    Nikki Haley did say, at one debate, that it needed banning because it was teaching anti-semitism. I didn’t watch the debates, and I wasn’t paying that much attention, I was noticing how she talks through her teeth, and also watching my man Vivek.

    I’m just thinking Israel isn’t calling the shots it’s this country and other outside forces.

    “‘Joe Biden’… is pretending to run for reelection with a party pretending to go along with the gag.”

    And We the People pretend that we have two actual and distinct political parties. And we pretend to hold actual elections. And we pretend to vote. And then, every four years we pretend that the person installed in the White House is an actual President. Looks like a whole lot of people are going along with this gag… and have done so for a good long time now.

    Not to mention we pretend to have ‘Freedom and Democracy’ (!) And a competent military that fights for the good of the American People instead of dark corporate and MIC and Neocon and Chosenite and other Hidden Hand interests… and which is not fully populated (don’t ever (!) say MANNED) by White-People-hating Wokesters of various forms of personal sexuality variations and conjured faux identities who no longer are allowed to embody the legacy military mottos regarding service and purpose.

    So much pretending going on all the time that we can hardly remember what ‘Real’ feels like any more. In fact, ‘Real’ doesn’t seem real any more in a World that has been so fake for so long that Fakeness is now our full default lifestyle.

    ‘GET REAL’ used to be a saying. But not any more.

    We no longer want anything to do with Reality. ‘We’re an Empire now (!)… and We make our own Reality’ (as famously uttered years ago) is the word of our Times.

    These days, it’s nothing but sight gags and tag lines and empty slogans and making up ‘Reality’ to fit our whims, deviancies, and impulses. Can’t wait to see where all that will take us in the years ahead…

          I’ve done lots of work from home jobs, did security and Loss Prevention. But I quit after I was physically assaulted trying to uphrehend a woman from stealing. I’ve dealt with a lot of violent mfers working security. Then I did some filthy job involving trash sorting on an assembly line and that was the most disgusting job in the world.

          The people who run our nation today is so damn obsessed with power they have successfully turned the U.S. into every other failed nation all molded into one…. Just wait until people start getting shot in the face while at the stop light like what happens in Brazil. Violence in Brazil is so horribly bad that the people see it as tolerable. I recall reading an article where this woman had to call her boss and let them know she was going to be late for work. When they asked her why, she told them “I’m being mugged right now.” I do not want to live in a country that’s so mind numbing bad that the people are tolerant and okay with it being unlivable. What it looks like to me is that they want to make sure that the only class of people living in America is the poverty class, no middle class what so ever. Just the poverty line class, and the 1% ruling over them.

          @BackRowHeckler

          lol yeah no, I’m not looking forward to something that will make 2020 look like a little incident. I didn’t have to worry about anyone causing trouble in my neighborhood, but my apartment complex is already looking like I live in the Middle East….I swear all they move over here now are Muslims, and I see so many women in hijabs walking around here.

          When I say America is boring as hell, I mean it’s not as fun as it use to be anymore. Last year I had to work two night shifts, and I saw a naked homeless child laying on the side walk wrapped in a blanking shivering. The mother was pretty much ragged and barely clothed herself. And you have no idea how many times I’ve had to avoid getting stabbed, raked in the face, spat on, or even ran over with a vehicle. One homeless woman actually did try to hit me with her car when I tried to remove her off the property. She climbed in it and tried to chase me down the parking lot. But I was able to get the hell out of the way.

          There are also so many encampments now, and people think this is normal…..All I can think about is how America was back when I was in my early teens. I would wake up, take my bike out for a ride or even roller skate and back then there were no homeless encampments. You had to go to the very worse part of the city to find such sightings. Like there is a neighborhood here in Sacramento called Marysville. It’s near Grant Highschool where I went to school. This area is mostly 89% black, but it’s always been riddled with drugs, violence, and other issues associated with such areas.

          I lived in that area back in the 1990s in a very small apartment block. My aunt and her three kids lived next door to me, my mother, and brother. My second youngest cousin father was shot three times in the chest in that neighborhood and lived. This area has looked like shit ever since, and if you go there now and looked at it? It’s still the same, now add all of this up and almost every block in California is a Marysville except some areas are a lot worse than others. Especially in cities like Fresno, Oakland, etc.

          • TruthSeeker1986 March 18, 2024 at 4:03 pm #

            Of course moving conditions improved once I moved into the Plaza’s back in 1992 from that crappy neighborhood I use to live in, that was like where all my best memories are, I really do miss living there. I wanted to get an apartment in that area but then I realized I had to go on a waiting list because all these “immigrants” have taken up everything. Across the street is an apartment were 90% of the people living there are Asian (Hmong). And half of them have been living in those apartments ever since the 1990s and early 2000s.

            Man Heckler it was great though in the mid 90s and early 2000s. I had so much fun with family and everything…Now I look around and all I see is all this man made depression, sorrow, pain, suffering, defeat, anger, rage, and hatred. Caused and fabricated by people that hate the shit out of this country.

            I watched “E.T.” the other night for the first time in many years, a classic movie if there ever was one. I think this was set and filmed somewhere around Sacramento. All I could think was that if this was set in present day, Elliott would be shot, robbed, raped, or worse while in the woods. Not to mention what would happen to poor little E.T. He would never be allowed to “go home”.

            The cast interview on the DVD was very interesting. They talked about how this film brought so many different people of different walks of life together as one, back when it was released in 1982. We don’t have movies like this anymore to bring people together and give us a common heart-rending story of human goodness. Everything these days is slasher porn, but hey, I guess that latest Civil War movie that came out is really making a splash.

    Let me just cut thru all the ‘noise’. Most of it is just the five stages of grief transferred to our national political life (denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance).

    The normalcy bias folks are still stuck in denial. Next bunch is a lot of us, with anger. I don’t see too much bargaining yet. But LOTS of depression and even glimpses of acceptance.

    What I wonder is what would happen if this whole SNAFU takes some of us beyond grief, beyond acceptance?

    Since there is no way now to stop this train wreck (the millions of illegal invading aliens have seen to that), the question is ‘what to do when you have nothing to lose’? That’s when things will change into forms of behavior and acts that have not been seen before in this nation.

    The Civil War? Nope.That was fought by two armies raised by two organized national governments. What we would have in our present circumstance would be ad hoc fighting groups scattered into disparate geographies. In that instance, a lot of these foreigners would be shot as soon as they showed the whites of their eyes.

    If the current Federal Government made all of these mutts United States soldiers, then the former TRAINED U.S. soldiers would not be in that army. They would be part of and providing leadership to these ad hoc citizen fighting groups.

    If you have nothing to lose but your chains, then many will begin to understand what Patrick Henry was saying. History doesn’t repeat but it rhymes.

    Don’t worry, if all inhabitants want to abandon their Indian Ocean islands to me, I will be more than happy to take their lands off their hands ASAP:

    Quote article:

    In under 50 years large swaths of norther South America, central Africa, India and northern Australia will become too hot to allow human life. And the acceleration of global warming suggests this deadline is being moved forward.

    Once these regions become too hot for human life an estimated 3bn people will be forced to abandon their homes in the largest migration the world has ever seen, which will play out over the next three decades.
    Closer to home, and the drought levels across the Mediterranean in Spain and Italy and elsewhere are already alarming. Last year was the hottest on record and with sea temperatures already smashing last year’s records this year is set to be worse. While Europe will not become uninhabitable, the temperatures in the coming decades will become uncomfortably high.

    “If this region gets the summer we expect with record global temperatures, these drought conditions will become even more severe,” says climatologist Peter Dynes.

        No, Truthseeker, huge dislocations are in the offing as the impact of changing global conditions takes hold. I have always argued that all the money spent measuring climate change needs to be spent helping populations adapt and move. Climate change is real as temperatures are rising world wide, but it will not have the ginormous change as predicted by the global power freaks. BRH will not see much change in his yearly excursions to the coast.

        However, there may be another sort of impact. The world’s weather is affected by ocean driven atmospheric effects, like La Niña and El Niño. We have no idea why this ocean phenomenon does what it does. We do know that it has big effects on the weather world wide. The changes mean that an area cannot count on predictable weather year-to-year. The effects on human activity is bigtime. Farmers for example cannot count on rainfall or drought in their areas. The Atlantic gyres have similar effects.

        I would like to add something to this. The atmosphere is organized into wind belts, north to south. Westerlies and trade are two examples. This is due to the coriolis effect. If these belts are movable due to temperature change, ???. If you looks around the world, you will notice that deserts occur at the same latitude belts, savannas the same, and wet zones the same. So does a warming of the globe cause shifts in whole climatic regions? Does the Sahara become a savanna if conditions change, recent work says it has been green in intervals before.. Does the American SW become habitable at intervals as Anasazi history shows. More important, do arable regions become uninhabitable as temperatures change?

        Bottom line, the artificial boundaries set up by people makes no difference to Mother Nature. Changes to local conditions will overwhelm Man and cause much discord in the future. Man has intelligence, well some of them. We are adaptable. Will it be enough?

        BTW, Putin has been heard saying he is in favor of climate warming. His country has so much promise in Siberia if it warms.

    Another thing I forgot happened. This is from a publication called Palestine Return Center:

    “An American of Palestinian origin, Maher Al-Bitar, was appointed as director of the intelligence service in the US National Security Council.

    Bitar served as general counsel to Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee and played a huge role in former president Donald Trump’s first impeachment.

    He also worked as the director of Israeli Occupation-Palestinian affairs on the National Security Council under former president Barack Obama.

    Additionally, Bitar worked with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Malaysia as well as the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) in the Near East in Jerusalem.”

    Laura Loomer has suggested this on X:

    The United States is to blame for October 7. And a Palestinian operative at NSC named Maher Bitar is the person everyone should be blaming and investigating.

    Why did
    @JoeBiden
    put a Palestinian Muslim jihadist named Maher Bitar in charge of being the Senior Director for Intelligence at the National Security Council?

    Israel and the US share counter terrorism intelligence.

    Maher Bitar is the person at NSC who directed security officials to not focus on HAMAS and Hezbollah in the weeks leading up to October 7.

    Sure looks like October 7 was an inside job by the Islamists who work for Biden in our intel agencies.

    How come Maher Bitar hasn’t been investigated?

    That’s why Mossad and US intel had this intelligence failure. The intelligence was intentionally sabotaged by the United States government.

    Everyone should be investigating Maher Bitar.

    He’s a Palestinian terrorist lover and BDS supporter.

    Why the hell is a Palestinian the Senior Director for Intelligence at the National Security Council?

      Good question. Thanks for the info. Here’s more from the Muslim Mirror:

      ‘As many as 12 Muslim Americans have been selected for various positions in the new US administration, led by Joe Biden. The induction of so many Muslim faces is reflective of how the new government is going to function in the upcoming four years.

      Biden has received appreciations from various groups and individuals for forming a team that comprises people from various sections of the society.

      He was also praised for excluding two Democrats, Sonal Shah and Amit Jani who were purportedly linked with India’s Hindu right-wing organisation, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, which is the parent organisation of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party.

      List of Muslim Americans appointed by Joe Biden in his Admin:

      1-Aisha Shah – partnership Manager at the White House Office of Digital Strategy

      2-Sameera Fazili – Deputy Director at the US National Economic Council (NEC)

      3-Uzra Zeya – Under Secretary of State for Civilian Security, Democracy, and Human Rights

      4-Ali Zaidi – Deputy National Climate Advisor

      5-Zayn Siddique – White House Deputy Chief of Staff

    Belief in the systemized political deception(Uniparty Theatre, Inc.)is as strong as a Swifty believes Taylor knows Button Joe is the shuffler to vote for, even if he’s wearing wide bodied, white New Balance sneakers assembled in and paid for by some Asian nation. Button Joe is the decorative sphere that is put in the loop to tie the two-sided garment together. Yes, Button Joe of Uniparty Theatre, Inc.

    Let’s get to the point. It’s a uniparty, sucka, and you’re on their white knuckle ride
    The curtain pulled back for the awakened to see
    Refuse to participate, just don’t take a side.
    It’s a game of deception and power, and they will no longer hide(when you own everything there’s nothi g left but power).

    Let’s launder our money
    traffic their kids for our pleasure
    We’ll jab those mf plebes
    And start two more wars
    We’ll open the gates for the invading horde
    Imprison the protestors
    Takeaway their speech and meats
    Depopulate this planet
    Just tell’em to reduce the fictional heat
    We hate, lowly subjects beneath Uniparty Theatre, Inc.
    Let’s go to fucking mars or a bunker
    Well nuke ’em
    We can no longer stand their God damn stink.
    It’s always been a game of pickle. Can’t you see? American’s are running between the two bases, blind and aimlessly.

    They have it locked down in the the least important, most distractible places.
    But they’re(only)competence excels
    In lying to our faces:

    “Tell me lies
    Tell me sweet little lies”

    -“Donald Trump will never be president.” Fmr HOR Chair Pelosi of the Uniparty
    “Joe Biden is a good man.” 44th of the Uniparty
    -“I will drain the swamp.” – 45th of the Uniparty
    -“I’m responsible for This beautiful Vaccine that saves lives. It’s safe and effective ”
    -“If I’m not elected it’ll be a bloodbath.” -45th of the Uniparty
    -“Trump is telling you it’s gonna be a bloodbath.” -46th of the Uniparty
    -“It’s a bloodbath if Trump is elected.” MSM of the Uniparty
    “Their code is to tell you what they’re going to do.” -One observers outside the Uniparty.

    It’s a uniparty, sucka.

    • TruthSeeker1986 March 18, 2024 at 6:23 pm #

      Seriously if they wanted to nuke us and everything why wait? Just do it already and get it over with. And if they go to Mars, what are they going to do up there? It took millions of years for the world to be where it is today, no way in hell those dumb aging old fucks will be able to do much up there on another planet. They are deluded as hell.

    It is becoming abundantly clear that a cataclysmic, violent, and deadly confrontation between good and evil is coming soon to the United States. The evil preparing to seize control of the U.S. is the full Socialist Democrat Party, a Party that now has fully embraced the absolute worst characteristics of Fascist/Socialist and Communist/Socialist ideologies. As pure evil goes, Socialism has flourished in three empires in the last century–Communist Socialism in Stalin’s Soviet Union and Mao’s Communist China; and Fascist Socialism in Hitler’s Germany. Fascist/Socialism also flourished in Mussolini’s Italy, but Italy under Mussolini never became worthy of “empire” status. All three “empires” killed millions of their own citizens who dared oppose the Socialist regime. All pursued evil conquests beyond their borders and killed millions more, directly or indirectly.

    Now, Socialism, complete with its total evil, is now working day and night to end the U.S. as a functioning Republic, and transform the U.S. into a de facto dictatorship run with an iron fist by a Democrat Party that is as far from anything remotely resembling freedom or democracy as one can get.

    Standing against this evil tide are “conservatives”–which, in fact, would be considered centrist or only moderately conservative by any historical standard, but who have been branded as “MAGA” or “right-wing zealots” by full-blown anti-freedom, anti-American Democrat Socialists.

    The Socialist Democrat Party is now enacting an unbridled assault on any of their political opposition who dares to question their ideology. They make this assault to weaken or destroy their opposition and/or to goad their opponents to react violently (just as Hitler did to his opposition) to “justify” the quick imposition of Marital Law to declare full-scale violence and war by the Democrat Socialists against any and all of their opponents. Democrats WANT a Civil War, and they will do (and are doing) what is necessary to get one.

    • TruthSeeker1986 March 18, 2024 at 9:45 pm #

      @Socialisthater

      I don’t think we’re going to have a civil War…I hear about this a lot but I doubt people are about to arm up and bother to fight them. I believe the Democrats are going to get what they want….And the Republicans will support and help them achieve it. Just look at the border and how it’s STILL open. Civil War would be terrible in America……

      Some Civil Wars can go on for years and years! I’m talking non stop violence every day of the month…… Such conflicts seem rather impossible to win. But you are correct on the assessment that they are trying to make the citizens strike first. As I said before, it’s not going to happen. For one thing I think people are too afraid of getting thrown in prison like the January 6 protestors….

      The only way I see people fighting is if food and water runs out or there is less of it to go around. THEN you’ll start to see a lot of infighting taking place everywhere. Still, there are very few instances where people will take up arms and fight their own government. It rarely happens no matter how hard they put their foot down on the citizens neck. People have a very high tolerance for abuse, and being trampled all over by the GOV….

      We are the only heavily armed nation in the world and people are still hesitant to do something. That’s why at this point I can’t even tell the difference between a nation where the people gave up their rights to bare arms vs a country where people still have their right to bare arms…..Because even in a disarmed country citizens are abused….We are a nation of fully armed people and STILL put up with this communist shit.

    The Scribe & the terrorist orcs are the only ones cheering the mad dog Putin. The terrorist navy has had 30% of the Black Sea fleet liquidated. The fleet is quite fleeting. The orc oil refineries have lost 30% of production thanks to 1000 km range Ukrainian drones. More cancellation of refineries are in progress. Production loss is permanent since the refineries were designed & constructed by European engineering companies & and the terrorists haven’t a clue how to rebuild. The orc economy is sinking fast like their navy. They will evolve into a decentralized local economic model much like the Scribe advocates.

    I tend to think of the sundry trips that the overlords lay upon the people as feeding frenzies. Not from the perspective of the people but rather from the perspective of the overlords. This is because they, or at least the most powerful subsets of they, literally feed off of and receive psychic and energetic nourishment from the energies created by their psychic and spiritual torments and atrocities. With each new atrocity it is as if they are a pack of piranhas in a delirium upon smelling blood.

    Within Western countries the Western overlords (i will no longer refer to them as elites because they lack the luster, gravitas, and charisma of actual elite essence) are generally thought of as gods by their subject populations. Their plans are inevitably perceived as fool proof and inevitable. This is likely not the case and could in fact be very far from the reality. It is hard to tell because we actually live behind an iron curtain in the West. Censorship has been the case since mass communication was a thing. Of course, acting like the hunted could be a ploy and distraction. But it is curious that these all powerful gods spend an awful lot of time behaving as if they are being hunted.

    Why was Prince William recently seen out and about shopping with a Kate Middleton double?

    • TruthSeeker1986 March 19, 2024 at 3:12 am #

      ….I don’t believe in all that “Double” nonsense. If people had doubles, then every single person that’s been dead for many years would have one. Unless I see a double of George Washington walking around somewhere, I don’t buy into this science fiction junk of there being multiple versions of certain people who might already be dead.

      • SoftStarLight March 19, 2024 at 10:59 am #

        You’ll have to check in with others who follow the royals more than me. Many of them are even more convinced than I that it was not Kate Middleton out and about with William recently. I simply asked a question.

        However, there are many things that go on that people “don’t believe”. Most people believed chemtrails were conspiracy theory just five years ago.

        For the longest time they kept claiming there were several Putin doubles too.

        And don’t even get me started on how they kept on hyping up all Putin’s health ailments. (“Putin’s going to die of cancer any day now!”) We haven’t heard about those in a while so they may be giving that line a rest.

        Putin certainly comes across as healthier and more fit than most Americans I regularly encounter.

            And he fought the Mongols. For hundreds of years. He never gave up. He eventually pushed them back to Mongolia – which is where, by definition, they belong.

            He destroyed Atil too, and put an end the the Khazar empire. He smashed the nest, but the birds, they flew.

          Yeah, I mean there could be maybe some “possibilities” of them using a double but I still don’t too much believe this stuff is extremely common. Sounds too easy, and far fetched. I mean how many people can you get to look identical to someone else? I read an article that says that they often use plastic surgery on the person to make this possible which is bullshit lol. 99% of plastic surgeries often resort in people looking uglier than they normally look. For a person to look 100 percent like someone else they would have to clone them.

But the real Trump is somewhere else doing this or doing that!” Reality is not the damn movies. I highly doubt that every last one of these people are using body doubles to hide and shield their true identities or whereabouts.

      • SoftStarLight March 19, 2024 at 11:59 am #

        Yeah, in all honesty I haven’t really heard too much about Trump doubles. And I am definitely plugged into the static and white noise of Magadonia so. When it comes to doubles I typically only think of the most inner circle families and people. So heads of state, royal families or extremely powerful families. That is where I see the possibilities. For what reasons? That is a whole separate set of questions.

        • cowbell81 March 19, 2024 at 12:17 pm #

          Would it be possible for me to get a double of myself? That way I can send my double to work my 9-5 job, while I relax at home and drink beer.

            lol well I guess that is certainly possible. What would you do if your double rebelled and wanted to switch up that routine now and then for a break?

          • Blackbird March 19, 2024 at 7:12 pm #

            You would have to maintain your double – feed it, house it, clothe it. Might eat into your beer money. If you house it in your home, that might cause some problems with Mrs. bell.

            Of course you could recruit a smarter double who could hold a more lucrative job and make more money for you – but that presents another set of problems…

        I think we saw the Hildebeast’s double on 9/11/16.

        Remember how she collapsed at the 9/11 memorial service, and had to be dragged into a waiting van?

        Then how she miraculously emerged a few hours from Chelsea’s apartment all shiny and new? “Oh I just had a slight case of pneumonia!”, as she paraded out to the sidewalk to meet with her adoring fans. And, “Come here little girl that I’ve never seen before, let me give you a hug!” – which was totally ok because pneumonia is never contagious…

        Different ears, different nose, different body mass, different sized pantsuit.

    It is frustrating to watch the “news” about Biden and all he has done.

    Here is the truth.

    When he took over. He undid all that Trump had accomplished, just because Trump did them. Since then every single thing he has done has turn to shit. Everything, I mean the absolute statement. His response to every problem has been to ignore it first, then use the media to explain away the negative impact of not doing anything.

    He is a legislator, not a leader. If we get another four years of his ineptitude, ??????

    • SoftStarLight March 19, 2024 at 2:18 pm #

    Hopelessly Imprisoned In State Self-Reinforcing Feedback Loops

    “Those who think anarchy, rather than the nation-state, equates to chaos and suffering, seem to have allowed the state-/corporate-controlled media to do their thinking for them.” ~ Caelan MacIntyre

    “Conventional news reporters tend to downplay police crimes because the police are important sources for news stories. But regardless, violence by police, sociopaths killing random crowds, and rising suicides are but symptoms of a society looking more like a madhouse than anywhere else besides war zones.” ~ Jan Lundberg

    “The state has moved into many new areas as they become significant… This expanding role of the state helps prevent the rise of any significant competing forms of social organisation

    The obvious point is that most social activists look constantly to the state for solutions to social problems. This point bears labouring, because the orientation of most social action groups tends to reinforce state power. This applies to most antiwar action too. Many of the goals and methods of peace movements have been oriented around action by the state… Indeed, peace movements spend a lot of effort debating which demand to make on the state… By appealing to the state, activists indirectly strengthen the roots of many social problems, the problem of war in particular…” ~ Brian Martin, ‘Uprooting War’

    “I wonder if or how much of journalists’ articles, including new, non-legacy media outlets like Consortium News, help serve to somehow empower people, or if their articles more or less simply feed, for their own bottom-lines, off State transgressions and, from that, help instill a sense of fear, uncertainty, doubt, helplessness and powerlessness among the general populations and perhaps indirectly further State transgressions, in a kind of self-reinforcing loop.

    Consortium News, we have to be honest with ourselves, even if it takes some bread off our table at the end of the day. Go grow a garden and join Transition Towns, permaculture ecovillages and whatnot. Or/And talk about them.

    We know my previous comment about the spooks that didn’t make your moderators’ cut is still what nevertheless matters and what’s important in the bigger picture if we are to get anywhere and if CN are to eventually have almost nothing to write about anymore, at least where the State and its fundamental corruption & immorality is concerned.

    The people at CN, if not CN itself, would also appear to do well to borrow from the pages of real anarchism (so, no, not the chaos kind) or at least reflect it more in their writings, unless it ultimately cares little for what it’s writing about, or at least about getting out of or around it.“ ~ The Man They Call Zazelle (immediately preceding threads)

    On October 27, three weeks into Israel’s war with Hamas, Biden’s top foreign policy officials told a small group at the White House that “Israel was regularly bombing buildings without solid intelligence that they were legitimate military targets,” the newspaper wrote, citing three sources familiar with the meeting.

    The officials also expressed concern that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had no clear plan for defeating the Palestinian militant group, with one source telling the Post that “from the very beginning, there’s been a sense of us not knowing how the Israelis were going to do what they said they were going to do.”

    At the time, the US was rushing military aid to Israel. Two weeks before the meeting, Biden visited the Jewish state and publicly declared that “as long as the United States stands…[Israel] will not be alone.” On the same day as the meeting, White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters that the US would not impose any “red lines” on how Israel conducted its military campaign.

    The meeting did little to change the rhetoric of Biden or his officials. The president didn’t criticize Israel over the repeated bombing of a refugee camp in early November. Likewise, the White House publicly backed Israel’s decision to bomb Gaza’s largest hospital later that month, with Kirby telling reporters that Hamas had hidden a command center beneath the facility.

    Behind the scenes, however, US officials worried that such a statement would be seen by the Israelis as a “green light” to attack the hospital, the Washington Post reported. Democratic Senator Chris van Hollen told the newspaper that there was “some disconnect” between what Kirby said and what US intelligence reports actually showed, without explaining further.

    Amid growing discontent from his own voters, Biden has since become more critical of Netanyahu. As early as January, the US president claimed that he was “quietly working with the Israeli government to get them to reduce and significantly get out of Gaza.” However, “When those conversations yielded little result, US officials offered few public rebukes and no evident consequences,” the Post’s sources said.

    “At every juncture, Netanyahu has given Biden the finger,” van Hollen told Axios in January, declaring that the Biden administration is “pleading with the Netanyahu coalition, but getting slapped in the face over and over again.”

    Netanyahu announced on Friday that he had approved plans to attack the city of Rafah in southern Gaza. Rafah is currently home to more than a million Palestinians displaced from other parts of the enclave, and Biden told MSNBC earlier this month that an Israeli operation there would cross a “red line.”

    Biden partially walked his comments back moments later, telling MSNBC that Netanyahu “has a right to defend Israel,” but must “pay more attention to the innocent lives being lost.”

    Jarek: They’re lying to us, but the miserable Zio-Cucks and Christians believe it because they want to be lied to.

    Biden in his dementia is smarter than they are. Israel controls the United States, not vice versa. Some of the Satanists/Globalist don’t like it – thus the mass demonstrations. Republicans are virtually all Zios, thus utterly worthless.

      imho it isn’t so much Israel that controls the US but rather Greater Israel or perhaps global Khazaria. This whole Ukraine scenario could very well be about the establishment of a second homeland for this particular horde. Or the reestablishment of the original homeland. That is one reason why the overlords will never let the Ukraine thing go. It is not even so much about Russia. Just that Russia is in the way of the plans. And many Israeli civilians are likely not part of all of this. Look at how zealous the Israeli gov was in ensuring its pop was force vaxed.

    The author of War and Peace and The Kingdom of God Is Within You is widely regarded as among the greatest writers of all time. In his middle age, Tolstoy suffered an existential crisis, questioning whether God exists and, in turn, whether life had meaning. He wrote his way through this crisis in The Confession, and afterward became a Christian anarcho-pacifist.

    In his piece On Anarchy, Tolstoy wrote

    The Anarchists are right in everything; in the negation of the existing order and in the assertion that, without Authority there could not be worse violence than that of Authority under existing conditions… And this is the will of God, the teaching of Christ. There can be only one permanent revolution — a moral one: the regeneration of the inner man.

    His faith led him to believe that all government was inherently violent and all violence inherently un-Christian. Because of this radical fusion of politics and religion, the Russian Orthodox Church excommunicated him in 1901.” ~ BigThink.com

      Gish-galloping Zaz doesn’t just use one logical fallacy when multiple ones will do. Like all sophists, he runs much of the sophists’ gamut, here using the appeal to authority. Unfortunately, Zaz’s use of quotations to back up opinions he can’t himself express coherently is often at odds with his fallacies. To wit, from the above:

      “[Tolstoy] is widely regarded as among the greatest writers of all time.”

      Indeed. And so …. ?

      Tolstoy was a great novelist. He wasn’t a noted philosopher.

      Literature is rife with authors who can write wonderfully delightful plots with aesthetically pleasing prose, can create psychologically compelling characters with (sometimes) great insight into the human condition. And yet, when they venture out into the political arena, they fall flat on their asses. Philosophers, themselves, aren’t immune. (One thinks of the egregiously distasteful Jean-Paul Sartre, e.g.)

      Zaz also doesn’t realize that Tolstoy, a God-fearing man, isn’t an anarchist. In fact, such a hard line Christian is the opposite of an anarchist. How does horizontal power exist within a framework of Godly authority?

      Notice also Zaz’s hiding behind someone who Zaz can’t even name- check — BigThink. How are we to vet this anonymous author? Note also the numerous non sequiturs in the cut-and-pasted “BigThink”‘s quote .

      Zaz, I hope, for your sake, that recruitment is at least going better outside of CFN.

            Does that apply to your preferred authors, too? Or just the ones whose side you don’t take?

            Hypocrite.

            Dostoyevsky lived, intimately, among people who were passionate nihilists and anarchists. He knew them inside and out, knew what motivated them because he was an extraordinary judge and observer of humans. Just one of the reasons he’s one of a handful of greatest novelists.

            Your historical knowledge of anarchism seems to be rather sketchy. In the mid 1980s in Russia, it was very much in the air. (“You could look it up!”, as EF likes to say.)

            IOW, a pressing problem, with very high stakes.

            Dostoyevsky shone a light like no other at the time to show what anarchy is, how it works, and the psychological and spiritual inadequacies, self-hate, and envy of those who fuel it.

            You might even recognize yourself in his characterizations!

        He apparently came to reject the legitimacy of the State – all of them, including the ostensibly Christian ones.

          The author at your link is correct when he references Tolstoy’s guilt at seeing the poverty in the cities, after having lived a life of luxury. Parallels to Gautama the Buddha. But this guilt led Tolstoy to a reactionary position, never a good emotional base upon which to create a grand vision.

          Being a Christian, Tolstoy would never be able to resolve the spiritual conflict in revering God — a soft or hard despot, depending on one’s perspective or Biblical concentration — yet having no authoritative figurehead on Earth.

          When one defers to God, one naturally defers to those who have God’s grace or easily-evident qualities on Earth.

          The internal contradictions that anarchists have to deal with are wide, numerous, and unresolvable.

          • BackRowHeckler March 19, 2024 at 6:46 pm #

            And yet, altho a traditionalist, Tolstoy’s earliest books may have influenced the Czar to free the serfs in 1861.

            Tolstoy was from Tula, southeast of Moscow; it occurred to me I have an old Russian battle rifle, a Mosin-Nagant, made in Tula.

          • Soul Forensics March 19, 2024 at 7:21 pm #

            BRH,

            Yes, and contrasted with later Russian rulers, the Czar was more indifferent than cruel.

            Serfs, obviously, were poor, but they had much more to fear from landlords than the heavy hand of gov’t.

          • Soul Forensics March 19, 2024 at 8:35 pm #

            Speaking of Tolstoy, why doesn’t Zaz, a Western Canadian, not say anything about the Doukhobors? Their Christian anarchism was heavily influenced by Tolstoy.

            To expand on internal contradictions, here’s a snippet from the website Kootenay History (author not attributed):

            “While the Doukhobors effectively employed communal labour to survive those first years, conflicts within the community began to emerge. In a foreign country devoid of their spiritual leader, the Doukhobors faced the daunting question of how best to be a Doukhobor in Canada. No longer united in their opposition to the Tsar or Church, they faced the lure of individual freedom as well as the influence of Tolstoyans who were eager to propagate their ideas of true Christian living among them.

            Consequently, three distinct groups began to form. Firstly, came those who were enticed by individuality to take up homesteads and abide by all Canadian laws. This group would eventually be known as the Independent Doukhobors.

            Secondly, came those who took Verígin’s interpretation of Tolstoy’s interpretation of the teaching attributed to Christ as representing God’s truth. However, they did not quite shut their eyes to all the lessons of experience and… wished their labour to be productive, their relations with their neighbours to be harmonious, and the order of their lives to be definite and settled. This group would become known as the Orthodox or Communal Doukhobors.

            Lastly, came those who were determined to embody the Christian Life and dutifully carry out what they perceived to be God’s work. They believed that if the new life and the law of God proved unworkable, it was only because they had not carried it far enough. This group would become known as the Freedomites or Sons of Freedom.

            One primary conflict between these groups and eventually with the government was the issue of land ownership. While the Independent Doukhobors felt nothing was wrong with acquiring land individually, the Communal Doukhobors and Sons of Freedom saw private land ownership as conflicting with the will of God.

            It is important to note, however, that this idea was thrust upon them by the persuasive influence of Leo Tolstoy.”

            End of quoted text.

            It’s unsurprising that competing sub-groups sprung up so soon (1902) after the Doukhobors’ emigration from Russia to Western Canada. Transplanted to a place where private property was coveted and possible, who would believe that the Tolstoyan doctrine of private property abolishment would be a unanimous choice?

            Of course, what followed when the gov’t, much less violently than Russia’s rulers, enforced local by-laws as they did to all citizens, was straight from the anarchist playbook — arson, bombings, and (new twist?) wholesale public nudity.

            Zaz frequently touts anarchists’ freedom, in which they supposedly would be able to use their collective imagination, ingenuity, and skill to create a just society. Why, then, do they have such a limited — and degraded — playbook?

Dead bodies are left lying in the streets to be eaten by wild dogs. No clean water or food available, & State Authority non-existent. This is Anarchy, in spades.

            If we don’t change our tune as a species, if we don’t mature as a species and get up on our feet, then Haiti, writ large, is likely what we’ll get periodically over time. We’re already getting it and have gotten it. But we won’t likely be getting off this planet.

    Next 3 huge wolves circled me, sniffing my crown. They might have been 7 ft tall. I was terrified.
    Next I was inside, maybe in a bedroom, with a older beat up lioness. I was nervous but not scared to death.

          Oh boy, here goes. It is kind of sketchy to piece together when I wake up, but I recall one I had two nights ago where I was in the backyard sorting through some pipe, and a woman of authority comes in and says I need to move everything because they will be doing work on the lot line. I forcibly told her to get the hell off my property or I would smash her nose into 50 pieces. Then I woke up.

          Then last night I recall dreaming about gathering up a bunch of old photos and stashing everything securely in the back hatch of a car. The store I was in was about to close and they were hustling me out, and I needed to get to a dinner, concert, play, or some other such event with some friends.
           
          Maybe I have some latent anger issues towards authority? Security and attachment issues? I don’t know what these dreams are trying to tell me.

      Most of us are in a near-constant dream state when “awake”.

  47. Soul Forensics March 19, 2024 at 4:00 pm #

    I had a dream. No, not the MLK kind.

    My wife called to me from the kitchen. As I entered, I saw her looking through the window to the back yard as she said: “Honey, there’s a naked old man swimming in our pool”.

    This was puzzling to me for several reasons, one being that we don’t have a pool. Nevertheless, I went outside and — by cracky! — my wife was correct. A naked old man emerged, with difficulty, out of the pool, his wrinkly skin pale and ablaze in the mid-day heat.

    It couldn’t be! But … but it was, it was Joe Biden, and he looked pissed.

    “Hey, kid, get me a double scoop, chocolate, with raspberry sprinkles, and make it snappy!”

    Irritated at being addressed in this fashion — I’m only a little over a decade younger than him — I ignored his command and instead asked him:

    “Joe, when are you gonna quit sending weapons and supplies to the Israelis?”

    Joe’s response was immediate and pointed:

    “Listen, you lying, dog-faced pony soldier …”

    But before he could finish his splenetic outburst, he evaporated in a snowstorm of pixels, taking with him the small puddle of water at his feet.

        earlier today I ran into a video where a teenage girl was savagely beaten on school campus and nobody tried to prevent it, she was also a white student. I didn’t read the entire article or click on the video either to see if the person beating her up was the same ethnicity or not. But the fact is I read the title and it said “student gets savagely beaten, no one steps in to help”. It popped up when I was looking into that whole Body Double thing.

        Yes, TS, a pretty little 17 year old blond girl, now in a coma.

        The back story is the school is 98% black, 2% white.

        I’m not sure if the family was trapped there by economic circumstances, or if they voluntarily lived there to experience the wonderful diversity. (And were willing to sacrifice a daughter)

If only you would read the Mainstream Media you would know that illegal immigrants are less violent than citizens, and that “legal” immigrants are virtual angels. (Unfortunately I don’t have the links – but a quick search should yield dozens of articles in support…) We need to flood this country – and every other white country – with “newcomers” to overwhelm the awful, evil, violent whites. I read this on MSN, so it’s gotta be true…

        In another story I discovered on MSN – how did they let this get out?:

        In diversity-blessed St. Louis, a 15 year old white girl had her face pounded into the street by a black “honor student”. Kaylee Gain – the white girl – suffered severe brain hemorrhaging and is in a coma. If any white racists want to help, her Go-Fund-Me page is here: gofundme.com/f/kaylees-recovery-funds

        The internet – of course – has exploded with support – for the “honor student” – Maurnice DeClue (“Say Her Name!!!”) – ’cause she’s so special, and of course a victim of white oppression since before her ancestors were born. I don’t know the address of her Go-Fund-Me page…

        Anybody wanna go burn down some vibrant ‘hoods in “mostly peaceful” celebration of Kaylee’s life?

          Turned into an all-out brawl where she was left bleeding and twitching on the street while people causally stepped over her.
          It was not her face but the back of her head that got bashed three or four times into the pavement by a girl that outweighed her by at least a hundred pounds.

    Times sure have changed in the past 63 years.

    Two months after graduating from High School in 1958 I started school at St Joseph’s College in Philly. The student body was all White and all male and you had to wear a suit and tie or at minimum a sports coat and tie. It was/is a Jesuit school yet being tiny, under 1500 students at the time, was a perennial basketball powerhouse.

    This currently being March Madness season of 2024, I am reminded of the like period of 1961, my junior year.

    To appreciate this, although I’d guess all y’all couldn’t give a shit, google “Why was Saint Joseph’s basketball win loss record revised in 1961?” Then, click on the first link which reads “A forgotten classic and the complicated legacy of the 1961…”

    Look at the team picture. Those players are all White and the tallest was only 6’8” and these guys had to attend classes. Jim Lynam was in my Logic class. Read the whole story. It takes me waaay back.

    • BackRowHeckler March 19, 2024 at 6:21 pm #

      Any Whites left at that school? The reason I ask is because I was reading an article about the Bronx, just up the road from you.

      This shit is really starting to piss me off now man….Like really, do people in Europe love living under the rule of these fucking assholes from other countries telling them wtf to do? Even when I was in school I would have rebelled against something like this. Trust me, I use to make liberals fear me in college. A teacher once said something and I know I didn’t like it. I picked up a chair and threw it right at the class door as hard as I could and that teacher left me alone because I didn’t like liberal teachers telling me what to do while they were craming their far left BS down my throat. I didn’t rebel just to act up, I did it because I was sick of their leftism preaching.

      • TruthSeeker1986 March 19, 2024 at 8:20 pm #

        Really if I was in Germany I would have mouthed off at the teacher, wouldn’t have cared about getting kicked out or expelled. First thing I’d say is “this is my country, you invaded me. If you don’t like me drinking water you can get the fuck out and go back to where you came from.” And that would have been the end of that conversation.

          There are quite a few people here fighting against the globalist plan for Europe.

          Like all Western nations, the news is controlled (known here as the Lügenpresse), WEF-controlled leaders have infiltrated the governments over the course of years, and the legal system is just as corrupt as in the US (particularly in Germany).

          We protested often against “Covid” regulations, and the risk we took doing so was serious. We were barred from shops, had curfews (that we broke) and faced serious consequences for speaking out.

          Many people spoke out here, and they continue to do so. You do not have the full picture.

    “[Howard Zinn] …especially was influenced by the liberating vision of the young Marx in overcoming alienation, and disliked what he perceived to be Marx’s later dogmatism. In later life he moved more toward anarchism.

    Zinn testified as an expert witness at Ellsberg’s criminal trial for theft, conspiracy, and espionage in connection with the publication of the Pentagon Papers by The New York Times…

    I explained there was nothing in the papers of military significance that could be used to harm the defense of the United States, that the information in them was simply embarrassing to our government because what was revealed, in the government’s own interoffice memos, was how it had lied to the American public

    Zinn’s testimony on the motivation for government secrecy was confirmed in 1989 by Erwin Griswold…

    In a column in The Washington Post, Griswold wrote: ‘It quickly becomes apparent to any person who has considerable experience with classified material that there is massive over-classification and that the principal concern of the classifiers is not with national security, but with governmental embarrassment of one sort or another.’ ” ~ Wikipedia

    • Soul Forensics March 20, 2024 at 1:00 am #

      Zinn is a vile individual, just one reason being that he’s a hypocrite in that he’s a limousine socialist. Ever read his “history” of the U.S.? Even Zinn admits it’s not history (truthful, that is).

(My “opinion” isn’t, it’s fact. As I said in my post, Zinn himself admits that he lies. The man was a grifter.)

            I HAVE actually made numerous points — as have others — and valid ones, regarding the historical record of anarchism, as well as making many salient points regarding human nature, as well as pointing you towards many works — historical, literary, philosophical, and spiritual — but you’re either too embedded in cognitive dissonance and ungrateful intransigence to acknowledge it and thank me for that, or you’re simply disingenuous.

    12 anarchists who changed the world
    Nirmalya ‘Nemo’ Dutta, india.com/viral/12-anarchists-who-changed-the-world-7780/

    “While Arvind Kejriwal is thoroughly being denounced for being an anarchist, the truth is that some of the greatest revolutionaries in the annals of history were called the same things…

    ‘The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.’ ~ Dante Alighieri

    Arvind Kejriwal’s statement that he’s an anarchist might have got a lot of flak from the media and opposition parties but we have to remember that some of the greatest revolutionaries have been labelled anarchists from time to time. The concept too has diluted over the years – nowadays it’s far common to use the term to describe anyone who agitates against authority but anarchism has been around since the Vedic era though the term has never been used in India.

    The rishis who gave us the Vedas lived in anarchist societies, in forests which were outside the control of states and rulers, but unlike Western anarchism, Vedic anarchism was more about a balance between man and nature. The modern concept of anarchism came from the works of William Godwin – a journalist, novelist and political philosopher who gave birth to the concept. Here are the greatest anarchists the world has ever seen:

    Mohandas ‘Mahatma’ Gandhi…”

    • Soul Forensics March 20, 2024 at 1:18 am #

      Dante wasn’t an anarchist.

      As for the rest of that bilge, we’ve been over this before. You know fuck all about Vedic scripture, so your digging up a string of non sequiturs from an author who — until your discovery — meant and means nothing to you is both pathetic and predictable.

      Imagine — using a completely different culture, from 6,000 years ago, in a completely different political system, with a completely different understanding of the world, to people who have no understanding (obviously) with what’s happened in the intervening millennia, and with radically different religious traditions and understandings — all to make a wildly speculative point filled with fractured leaps. And about anarchism, no less!

        They don’t highlight Dante as an anarchist in the article if I read it correctly. It’s just a quote of his.

        As for your rest, ‘opinions’ noted, whether we agree with them or not or whether those ‘anarchists’ or author of said article would have agreed with you or not.

        I don’t, at least necessarily, present things to argue at length online, perhaps most certainly not with some anon like you, maybe also with an agenda that is more in keeping with a bee in the bonnet.

        Some things can simply be presented for the sake of grist for the mill. Hey, you’re grinding it, so there you go.

        Besides, I’m inclined to view it as a bit of a cop-out on your part anyway. Ultimately, you have mostly yourself to live with, not Zinn, Wikipedia, assorted website authors or Dante.

        Maybe if/when you’re so pumped, go try to argue whatever with whoever has the time and desire such as for your style/approach, which, incidentally, is doubtful would make for a better world if clones of you attempted to run it.

        No disrespect intended there, just dubiousness.

    Brave Search Engine Summarizer To; ‘Was Jesus An Anarchist?’

    “According to various sources, Jesus was an anarchist. Some argue that he led a purely anarchistic life with the added dimension of a higher being: that of God. Others claim that he was a libertarian anarchist, consistent voluntaryist, and a supreme example of authentic anarchy, creative, and vibrant. Jesus’s anarchism has profound implications for Christians’ attitudes toward government and its actions. However, at the most basic level, Jesus taught that we must be servants to God, which disqualifies him from being an anarchist.”

    Was Jesus An Anarchist

    “I think a good case can be made that yes, in many ways, he was. To quote Tolstoy: ‘Christianity in its true sense puts an end to the State. It was so understood from its very beginning, and for that Christ was crucified‘…

    There is also the third temptation in the desert, a pretty clear condemnation of state idolatry. Or the Temple Cleansing, where Jesus’ direct action clearly implies a denunciation of the concentration and abuses of religious, political and economic power (and most Christian anarchists insist the action was nonviolent, by the way). Then there are all the bitter criticisms of the Pharisees as hypocrites in their application of divine law, criticisms that don’t seem that inapplicable to some church authorities today. Jesus’ arrest and trial also exemplify his attitude with respect to political authorities, and his crucifixion embodies both his condemnation of state violence and his forgiving alternative to overcome it. Then there is the Book of Acts, the many Epistles, and of course the Apocalypse – all of which one can find convincing Christian anarchist interpretations on. In other words, according to quite a few passages in the New Testament, Jesus’ teaching and example tend towards anarchism broadly defined.” ~ William Crawley, BBC,

    Jesus Is an Anarchist

    “Abstract

    The teachings and actions of Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha’Mashiach) and the apostles recorded in the New Testament are analyzed in regard to their ethical and political philosophy, with analysis of context vis-a-vis the Old Testament (Tanakh, or Hebrew Bible) being given. From this analysis, it is shown that Jesus is a libertarian anarchist, i.e., a consistent voluntaryist. The implications this has for the world are profound, and the ramifications of Jesus’s anarchism to Christians’ attitudes toward government (the state) and its actions are explicated.” ~ James Redford, Social Science Research Network,

    All cultured, kindly men; all gentlemen; all just men are Anarchists.

    Jesus was an Anarchist.

    A monarchist is one who believes a monarch should govern. A Plutocrat believes in the rule of the rich. A Democrat holds that the majority should dictate. An Aristocrat thinks only the wise should decide; while an Anarchist does not believe in government at all.

    Richard Croker is a Monarchist; Mark Hanna a Plutocrat; Cleveland a Democrat; Cabot Lodge an Aristocrat; William Penn, Henry D.Thoreau, Bronson Alcoa and Walt Whitman were Anarchists.

    An Anarchist is one who minds his own business. An Anarchist does not believe in sending warships across wide oceans to kill brown men, and lay waste rice fields, and burn the homes of people fighting for liberty. An Anarchist does not drive women with babes at their breasts and other women with babes unborn, children and old men into the jungle to be devoured by beasts or fever or fear, or die of hunger, homeless, unhoused and undone.

    Destruction, violence, ravages, murder, are perpetuated by statute law. Without law there would be no infernal machines, no war ships, no dynamite guns, no flat-nosed bullets, no pointed cartridges, no bayonets, no policeman’s billies, no nightsticks, no come-alongs, no handcuffs, no strait-jackets, no dark cells, no gallows, no prison walls to conceal the infamies therein inflicted. Without law no little souls fresh from God would be branded ‘illegitimate’, indelibly, as soon as they reach Earth.

    Without law there would be less liars, no lawyers, fewer hypocrites, and no Devil’s Island…” ~ Elbert Hubbard,

      Jesus was not an anarchist. Jesus was apolitical. His message was for each of us the relish his position in life, and remember that allegiance and adoration of God is number one in life.

      Anarchists do not say:

      Give unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s. And Give unto God that what is God’s.

      Jesus avoided any political involvement at all.

          Anarchists believe that any government is bad, any one in control over them is bad news. As Jesus said, give to the state what it is due.

            Chomsky may have suggested that government was ok if it was legit– legit, meaning, presumably, that everyone agreed with it and it could be opted in and out at will, so voluntary.

            At least that’s my tentative feeling about it.

            Or, if not government, then maybe some kinds of ‘mutual organizations’ that, say, help us develop rockets and/or space ships to travel to other planets.

            Or, perhaps along the lines of John Zerzan’s thinking, we all exist in green harmony with the planet and little if any technology, until the sun ends and the oceans boil away.

    Zen Anarchy

    “From the beginning, Zen was more anarchic than anarchism. We can take it on its own terms. Just so you don’t think I’m making it all up, I’ll cite some of the greatest and most highly-respected (and respectfully ridiculed) figures in the history of Zen…

    Zen is also the strictest and most super-orthodox form of Buddhism — and at the same time the most iconoclastic, revolutionary and anarchistic one. The roots of Zen go back to the beginnings of the Buddhist tradition — not to any founding sacred documents or to any succession of infallible authorities, but to the experience that started the tradition: the anarchic mind! Forget the ‘ism’ of Buddhism. It’s not ultimately about doctrines and beliefs. The ‘Buddha’ that it’s named after means simply the awakened mind or somebody, anyolebody, who happens to ‘have’ that kind of mind.” ~ Max Cafard

    Haiti & The Corruption of Business, The State & Its Defenders

    UN Peacekeeping has a Sexual Abuse Problem

    Haiti is just one of many countries where peacekeepers have raped women and girls, or sexually exploited them in exchange for food or support. My colleagues have also reported on rape by African Union forces in Somalia, French and UN peacekeepers in Central African Republic and UN troops in the Democratic Republic of Congo. While the UN can investigate allegations of sexual abuse and rape, peacekeeper accountability is up to the country that sends the troops. As a result, prosecutions have been rare even after media coverage and outrage…

    For decades, desperate civilians have sought UN peacekeepers to alleviate some of the worst horrors of our times. Survivors of violence, displacement and poverty shouldn’t have to fear that those charged with protecting them will contribute to their suffering.’ ~ Skye Wheeler, Human Rights Watch, hrw.org/news/2020/01/11/un-peacekeeping-has-sexual-abuse-problem”

    “ ‘I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested.

The July 1915 invasion took place following years of socioeconomic instability within Haiti that culminated with the lynching of President of Haiti Vilbrun Guillaume Sam by a mob angered by his decision to order the executions of political prisoners. The invasion and subsequent occupation was promoted by growing American business interests in Haiti, especially the National City Bank of New York, which had withheld funds from Haiti and paid rebels to destabilize the nation through the Bank of the Republic of Haiti with an aim at inducing American intervention.’ ~ Wikipdedia”

      • Rowdypiglet March 20, 2024 at 12:15 pm #

        @Zazelle, I won’t enter into the argument about anarchy because . . . definitions. Without agreeing on what the terms mean (and it seems that we don’t) it’s useless to discuss it. So this is not an argument, just an observation.

        It appears as though humans have always contrived to have government or something that functions more or less in the same way but with a different name. We create governments and laws because it’s instinctive in humans to attempt to impose a degree of order upon chaos; without order, we can’t create anything. I think it would be true to say that humans function best when there is minimal law and order, with room for a soupcon of chaos. It was the reasonably orderly world that allowed for a Thoreau or Whitman; in an anarchic world, they wouldn’t last five minutes.

        It doesn’t seem to me that you have any investment in your own arguments. How long would you survive in Haiti? No one argues that governments are always benevolent, but anarchy seems to me just another fake utopia in which actual human beings cannot live. Adults accept that nothing in this world is anywhere close to perfect.

          “Adults accept that nothing in this world is anywhere close to perfect.” ~ Rowdypiglet

          You don’t say. Have you emailed JHK about that?

          Because I mean why should he bother with much of the subject matter of his articles that, presumably you drop in to read and write about?

          Adults take steps to make things better, especially if/when they’re often, if not chronically reading, writing and complaining about and experiencing problems that shouldn’t be there.

          Other adults, well, I guess they simply like to wallow in their own shit.

          • Rowdypiglet March 20, 2024 at 3:23 pm #

            @Zazelle, You’ve misunderstood me. I never said that people (adults) shouldn’t take steps to make things better. I’m a perennial optimist, and I’ve been poking things to try to improve them all my life. But perfection is a utopian concept and, as such, it’s particularly appealing to the left. It can always be better, but it can never be perfect; there’s a sweet spot that we touch on occasionally where there’s just enough order to take us out of the jungle and just enough chaos to produce art, literature, music.

            I’m trying to understand you, but I genuinely don’t understand how or why you think a lawless, unstructured world would be an improvement. In that world, most of us would soon be someone’s barbecue. It’s easy to be critical of hierarchies, but they’re part of nature and seem to me to be inescapable.

            Well State governments currently fall into the former.

            “The most absurd apology for authority and law is that they serve to diminish crime. Aside from the fact that the State is itself the greatest criminal, breaking every written and natural law, stealing in the form of taxes, killing in the form of war and capital punishment, it has come to an absolute standstill in coping with crime. It has failed utterly to destroy or even minimize the horrible scourge of its own creation.” ~ Emma Goldman

    Solar eclipse coming!

    “The sun at Chartres seen thru an open door
    Was like a rest wherein I hatched a score
    Of red-gold sunthoughts now unheralded
    They change to sun nymphs on my hearts dark shore.

    The sun at noon is like a pool of gold
    Towards whose uncertain brik the clouds have rolled
    To quench their thirst likewise the invisible winds
    Drank firemen and all my heart is consoled.”

          • BackRowHeckler March 20, 2024 at 1:37 pm #

            No, he wasn’t broke. He had peddled a lot of nonsense to many impressionable young girls from Paris, to Boston, to NYC throughout the 1920s. I think it finally caught up with him.

            He was thirty, the expatriate scene in Paris was ending — Fitzgerald, Hart Crane, Hemingway, Dorothy Parker, Powers Smith etc. — had all gone home. The party was over, the money was drying up, the Great Depression was coming, and he simply did not want to be a responsible adult. To get a sense of that period read Fitzgerald’s ‘Babylon Revisited.’

            Crosby was a big fan of Arthur Rimbaud, more specifically his book ‘A Season in Hell’, which led him to lead a rather helter skelter life.

            Rimbaud died an early death, and Crosby espoused the idea that it was a poets duty to die young. He sounds like a crackpot but there really is something attractive about him. The thing about Harry Crosby is he lived to only about the age of 30 but he had plenty of cash and showed himself a mighty good time in those 30 years.

      • Anthea March 20, 2024 at 2:17 pm #

        It’s been quite pleasant here, with some warm days (70°), but with some nights dropping down into the twenties–so the seedlings that have been hardening off on the porch have to be brought indoors overnight. We got the cabbages (Early Jersey Wakefield) planted today–nice big transplants that are about five inches tall and almost as wide. The kale (Russian Red and Dazzling Blue) and collards (Georgia) need to be transplanted to the garden too, but we ran out of time for them. After those comes the broccoli. They are a little less cold-hardy.

        We had a lot of trouble with pests on the brassicas last year, but we’re well armed against them this year, so–fingers crossed.

        • Rowdypiglet March 20, 2024 at 3:29 pm #

          @Anthea, It’s snowing a bit here today and feels particularly unspringlike. Wish I had the courage to plant cabbage, but I’ve read that it attracts lots of pests and I try to make a garden where I don’t have to wage war. Year before last, I planted quite a bit of Swiss chard. It was delicious, grew like crazy, insects were quite uninterested in it, and it reseeded itself last year. I picked the last of it in November. I’ve planted kale a few times, but the bugs won’t leave it alone.

          • Anthea March 21, 2024 at 12:11 am #

            @ Rowdypiglet:

            This is about the right time to set out kale and cabbages in this climate zone.

            In past years, the white flies (worm stage) always ate up any brassicas, but we’d get a good harvest before they appeared, and the kale and collards would put on new growth after they were gone–starting around September. So we’d get a long fall season for harvesting kale and collards.

            Last year I applied worm castings to the brassicas, which helped (though not much). I was able to harvest a few early cabbages before the white flies set in–which I had never succeeded at before.

            Anyway, we had particularly bad luck last year: no fall brassicas at all, because we had a bad infestation of harlequin bugs–which I had never even seen before.

            This year, the plan is to keep the brassicas sprayed with neem oil, and also I think I’ll pick up some diatomaceous earth tomorrow. (DE should work for harlequin bugs.) My next-youngest daughter is an expert gardener, and she says that the best way to get rid of white flies/cabbage worms is to diligently pick off the worms every day until they’re gone, which she says takes about two weeks.

            We’re determined to make it work this year, with the brassicas.

            I don’t like chard very much, but what I do like is beet greens, and chard is really just a beet bred to produce greens that are larger and more dense (and have pretty colors).

            @ stelmosfire:

            Our average last frost date is April 15th, but it’s best to wait till May 1st to set out tomatoes and peppers.

            Kale and cabbage are okay with frost down into the mid-twenties. Broccoli is supposedly a little more tender–only good down to about 28. Anyway, this means that the kale and cabbage can go into the garden starting about now. (I think they say to plant them out about two weeks before the last frost date.)

            I started a bunch of peppers indoors, but germination has been very slow and poor, and I can’t think of anything I did wrong. Peppers are slow anyway, so maybe I have some varieties that are super-slow.

            I was hoping to have enough pepper seedlings to share with my oldest daughter and her husband. They bought a house about a year ago, and now they want to have a garden. My daughter likes to make “poppers,” and you can use just about any kind of pepper for that.

            I just bought an air fryer, which really simplifies making poppers or “blistered” shishitos, and supposedly you can use an air fryer to roast poblanos and other peppers to remove the skin.

            @benr, In my part of the world, winter lasts a long time. Ducks (and geese, and chickens) need someplace well protected to live during the winter, preferably with a bit of heat. People forget this because they see chickens wandering around freely all summer, sleeping on people’s porches at night. They get themselves a few chickens and, before you know it, it’s 10 degrees out with a foot of snow. That’s how people come to have, as my neighbors did, a very nice rooster living in their bathroom. They tried to persuade us to adopt the rooster but we didn’t see that putting him in our bathroom would be much of an improvement. Fortunately, someone did give him a home. Otherwise he’d have been living in our house because we’re suckers and he looked at us with his big rooster eyes.

    Republican U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump drew outrage from the White House, Democrats and leaders of Jewish groups for saying Jewish Americans who vote for Democrats hate their religion and Israel.

    “Any Jewish person that votes for Democrats hates their religion, they hate everything about Israel and they should be ashamed of themselves,” said Trump, who hopes to unseat President Joe Biden, a Democrat, in the Nov. 5 U.S. election.

    “The Democrat Party hates Israel,” he said in the interview with his former adviser Sebastian Gorka posted on his website on Monday.

    Jarek: Trump is apparently reading my posts. Am I secretly (even to myself) in charge? It is said the Secret Society of the Nine Unknown Men who kept the world running, held no meetings and were unknown to each other and to themselves.

      Trump is such a desperate little bitch to get back into the white house. When he isn’t acting like a pathetic shill for Israel, he’s constantly bragging about how he’s the only person that can prevent World War III, and how if he was still President Russia wouldn’t have done this or done that. He talks so much crap and tries to come off as tough. But at the end of the day, one thing we all know is that he’s Israels proud bitch that cares more about them than he does about the very white people they want to destroy and have erased by the Negro races.

      • JohnAZ March 20, 2024 at 5:34 pm #

        I do not understand your statement that Israel is trying to destroy White men.

        They are White men, Eastern European and Russian by origin and what was left after the Holocaust.

        Israel is the only “European” style republic in the Middle East.
        He has some bragging right as the USA was at peace at the end of his administration and Ukraine and the Israeli wars have started on Bidens watch. Remember Trump wanted the Biden/Nuland interference in Ukraine investigated. Biden very successfully got him impeached over the issue which became a war.

        Look deep, Biden is behind much of what we are seeing right now.

          • JohnAZ March 21, 2024 at 11:22 am #

            TS1986 is a relatively young person who is repulsed by what he is seeing in the world now. I empathize with him because I was his age when I discovered what a shit hole the USA was then, and it is much worse today.

            He has a chip on his shoulder about Israel, maybe he should explain why?

        • BackRowHeckler March 20, 2024 at 7:41 pm #

          I know JAZ many otherwise intelligent posters blame Israel for everything, a country smaller than New Jersey with less population than New Jersey. How much influence does Israel actually have in world events? Right now Israel is fighting for its life; They’re surrounded by 800 million hostiles, including 150 million Egyptians right next door. Lebanon used to be a decent country — Paris of the Middle East — when it was majority Christian. But Christians were driven out. Now it’s an open sewer, run by Hezbollah. Israel is the only Democratic, prosperous country in that quarter of the World. It seems like there is an attempt in Western Capitals, filled up by Muslims, to isolate Israel, in London and NYC especially. At least this time around, unlike 1939-1945, Jewish people have a homeland to operate out of, trained soldiers, and plenty of weapons to protect themselves, including presumably nuclear weapons.

        Yes, he’s ridiculous and desperate. The Israeli lobby is powerful and it can help him win or at least stay out of jail, perhaps. Or will they betray him again as Netanyahu did – the first world leader to recognize Biden as president.

    • TruthSeeker1986 March 20, 2024 at 1:47 pm #

      @Jarek

      And the stupid remarks he made will only cost his desperate ass the election most likely again. Just like it did the first time even before he said all of that. Paul Craig Roberts mentioned how Trump did more for Israel than anyone else, and they still fucked his ass out of the Election in favor of Biden. But he won’t mention that, because it’s easier to blame Democrats for everything instead of accepting the fact they didn’t want him, they want someone who will be easier to control. But who knows maybe this time Trump will prove to be worse than Biden to keep them happy.

    To conflate the two is the pre/trans error of Wilber; To think that the pre-personal spontaneity of the child is the same as the trans-personal spontaneity of the sage, a spontaneity not born of animal spirits, but of Spirit itself.

    Likewise the latter is much higher than strictly personal “spirit” of the intellectual or man of action.

    Enough with the anarchy already. Things are the way they are. I don’t feel the subject merits all the analysis and argumentation. Let’s move on. Although, it seems that humans need some kind of authority. We’ve always had government of some sort to maintain order. It may have not worked out so well. As the ultimate fallback, we’ve used the concept of a supernatural entity to tell us how to live our lives. Why?

    It seems that humans – primates – don’t have the ability to act on their own. They need direction. Humans, the apparent evolutionary end point of primatism (a word I’ve made up) have a major disadvantage over other species: We realize that our lives will end – and of this date, have no way to prevent this. This is a biggie. As far as we know, a dog or a cat doesn’t know that. What an advantage! No wasted energy on the future, just freedom from worrying about it.

    A solution to the problem is for us to take responsibility for our lives, not to seek outside help. I guess anarchy of some type is that solution. Still, how can we trust others?

    Being taught respect others is necessary for us humans. We haven’t really emphasized that. Until we’ve tried, we can’t be truly free. Or maybe we primates are not capable.

          BRH,
          Words have meanings and consequences. You want Zaz to change the meaning of “anarchy” to something warm and fuzzy? No, I don’t think so. Examples;

          Looting and arson is “mostly peaceful”

          Illegal Immigrants are currently “undocumented”

          Feral thugs are “youths”

          Pederasty is “loving childcare”

          Gun confiscation is “sensible gun control”

          If Zaz decided to never mention anarchy again, with his ill supported notion of the term, then the subject would be closed. If I were to call all white men in Connecticut who attend treasury auctions as racist white supremist, and continue to do so over your objections, would you let it stand? Probably not.

          It is Newspeak. I will continue “busting his balls”, because someone has to do it. Let me here apologize to the assembled readership for my continued postings.

      @ beantownbill:

      Maybe what Zazelle (unbeknowst to himself) means by “anarchy” is “government”–as per the distinction Nock made between “government” and “the State.” In this model, “government” is pretty much a matter of custom and social controls exerted through consensus, while also allowing for the possibility of “negative interventions” against an individual who got seriously out of hand. “Government” imposed no “positive interventions” against the individual; i.e., there were no top-down demands that the individual do one thing or another, such as pay taxes and tribute, license his business enterprise (same thing), buy health insurance, etc. Obviously, society at large, would impose “positive interventions” against the individual–and probably plenty of them, which it should be unnecessary to list.

      Anyway, Nock is worth reading on this subject, and, since the guy’s at outstandingly good writer, this would be an enjoyable project. (Read Our Enemy, the State.

      I always just scroll past Zazelle’s posts, since I’ve never been able to figure out what the guy does mean by “anarchy,” and he does not seem likely to enlighten me about this. Whenever I’ve read his posts in the past, they seemed to me to just so much jibber-jabber. Hard to even make sense of them.

        Well I’ve already said that anarchy and government don’t seem necessarily mutually exclusive and that government in that context may simply need to be voluntary/mutually consensual– like any reasonable relationship between two beings.
        I’ve also previously made a distinction between government and the State.

        The work of Nock’s you are referencing contains many words too, but perhaps it is indeed a good alternative.

        If my jibber-jabber prompted your reference of it, then perhaps it was not entirely in vain.

        Right now, we are in an unreasonable sociocultural relationship that is doomed to fail, precisely because– and as you and Nock may suggest– it is unreasonable/non-consensual on many levels…

        ~ The Man They Call Zazelle, October 19, 2023 at 4:04 am

        “Lest anyone protest that the state’s true ‘function’ or ‘duty’ or ‘end’ is, as Locke, Madison, and countless others have argued, to protect individualsí rights to life, liberty, and property, the evidence of history clearly shows that, as a rule, real states do not behave accordingly. The idea that states actually function along such lines or that they strive to carry out such a duty or to achieve such an end resides in the realm of wishful thinking. Although some states in their own self-interest may at some times protect some residents of their territories (other than the stateís own functionaries), such protection is at best highly unreliable and all too often nothing but a solemn farce. Moreover, it is invariably mixed with crimes against the very people the state purports to protect, because the state cannot even exist without committing the crimes of extortion and robbery, which states call taxation (Nock 1939), and as a rule, this existential state crime is but the merest beginning of its assaults on the lives, liberties, and property of its resident population.”

He was an Idiot Savant, remembering everything forever, and thus could pass any BAR exam they gave him. He actually took LSATs for folks, for money, and could adjust the score to what the person “should” get. Genius. He was an impressive, innovative lawyer.

          Anyway my curiosity was piqued and I looked up the requirements to be accepted by the BAR in NY. Surprisingly, if you can pass the BAR exam and have had some law school, you can be accepted by the BAR and practice. A JD is not required.

    ‘Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) got into a heated exchange with former Hunter Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski on Wednesday over whether he witnessed President Joe Biden commit a crime.

    The congresswoman asked whether it was Bobulinski’s testimony that he witnessed the president commit a crime. When Bobulinski attempted to skirt around giving a direct answer, Ocasio-Cortez repeated the question more firmly.

    “Did you witness the president commit a crime?” Ocasio-Cortez asked.

    “Yes,” Bobulinski said.

    “And what crime have you witnessed?” the congresswoman asked. “It is simple, you name the crime. Did you witness him steal something?”

    Bobulinski then claimed to have witnessed the president violate corruption statutes, commit crimes under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, and violate the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

    “What is the crime? I asked you to answer the question,” Ocasio-Cortez repeated.

    “I answered the question — RICO. You’re obviously not familiar —” Bobulinski said before being cut off.

    “Excuse me, sir, RICO is not a crime. It is a category,” Ocasio-Cortez interjected.

    “RICO is a category of crime that you’re then charged with,” Bobulinski said.

    Ocasio-Cortez also encouraged House Republicans leading Joe Biden’s impeachment inquiry to name the crime they are charging the president with.

    The exchange occurred during the second House Oversight Committee hearing into the impeachment inquiry of the president. Bobulinski also testified that he believes the president is lying about his involvement in Hunter Biden’s business dealings because they had a meeting in Los Angeles in 2017.

    “The sole reason Hunter wanted me to meet his father was because I was the CEO of Sinohawk,” Bobulinksi said. “’If Joe Biden was not involved in son’s business dealings … why would he take 45 minutes out of his night to sit with me for 45 minutes to an hour to discuss my background, the business we’re doing with the Chinese, and his family’s background.

    Hunter Biden has admitted that the meeting at the Beverly Hilton took place, but he said no business was discussed.

    Another former Hunter Biden business associate was also at the hearing, along with former Trump administration aide Lev Parnas. Hunter Biden was also invited to testify but declined the invitation.’

    James Comer and Jim Jordan have bupkis on Biden. Smoke but no gun. AOC is all Puerto Rican fire.

    I’ve been reading about celebrity announcements of cancer, the most recent being Richard Simmons. The cancer being basal cell carcinoma (bcc). Well, fyi, bcc is something of not great concern. It doesn’t tend to spread. I had one on my upper arm about 20 years ago. I was not happy. It so happened that my wife’s cousin was a top cancer doctor. I was planning a vacation and thought I would have to cancel it to deal with my cancer. He almost laughed. He said bcc was not serious, it almost always never spreads unless untreated, and some of his colleagues didn’t even consider it a cancer. He also said if I waited several months to treat it, that would be fine. All they do is burn it off and then you’re done. So I went on vacation and then had it removed a few months later. It took less than an hour, and it never came back.

    The scary skin cancer is a melanoma because if left untreated will probably spread through your body and kill you. Even if it’s removed, you don’t necessarily know if some cells still remain. My sister had 3 or 4 of them. My skin care provider said some people just sprout them. My sister died a couple of years after, but from acute myeloid leukemia. I don’t know if it was somehow related to the melanoma.

    Anyway, my point in mentioning this is because of how the media reports bcc. They say that the celebrity has just stated they’ve received devastating health news. He or she has a bcc. Woopie do.
    They catastrophize it to get viewers. Very dishonest. Kinda like the covid narrative. God, I really dislike the media.

    • tucsonspur March 20, 2024 at 7:08 pm #

      I’ve had bcc two times. Right, no big deal, but be vigilant. Media and sensationalism, what’s new?

      • JohnAZ March 21, 2024 at 11:05 am #

        Of course you have had skin cancer, TS, you live in Arizona.

    • JohnAZ March 21, 2024 at 10:44 am #

      Morning, all. I have had two melanomas. They need to be caught very early as they are very active cancers. They burrow into the skin and if they hit blood circulation, metastasis is very quick. The key is how deep they are. It settles in the bones and brains very quickly.

      For all the White, fair skinned 0ver 65 folks like me, our dermatologist is a best friend.

      BTW, BCC can spread over an area but you are right, not that dangerous.

  68. tucsonspur March 20, 2024 at 7:00 pm #

    Some say that we are moving into totalitarianism here, if we’re not already there. They despise the situation, attack it with a venomous hate.

    Yet, to them, when it comes to Russia, they sing a different tune and totalitarianism becomes just a lovely lullaby.

    Like macho, ignorant, impressionable schoolboys, they’ll blindly go for the brute, forgetting the background, with testosterone and the desire to see toughness somewhere, anywhere, twisting their thinking.

    Fools in Putin’s pocket.

    • Jarek March 20, 2024 at 7:28 pm #

      You have to love and hate the right people. Putin hates his enemies and loves his people. Our leaders hate their own people and love the enemies of their people.

      Fascism is clear on this. You need to read more Ezra Pound.

      • tucsonspur March 21, 2024 at 5:36 am #

        Be careful with your reasoning, be more specific. Saying that our leaders ‘hate their own people’ is too broad a statement. Do they hate themselves and their supporters, or just the MAGA types and the Right in general?

        In some strange and twisted psychological fashion, I guess they could hate themselves, but I don’t really believe that to be the case.

        I ‘hate’ the murderous Putin, who I believe loves his power more than his people, but I’m not sure if I can say that I ‘love my people’. Too broad. I will certainly support and ally myself with honest, hardworking, conservative whites with integrity, intelligence, and backbone. One also might ask, “What’s love got to do with it?”

        Even the great Bo Diddley popped the question;

        I walk forty-seven miles of barbed wire
        I use a cobra snake for a necktie
        I got a brand new house on the roadside
        Made from rattlesnake hide
        I got a brand new chimney made on top
        Made out of a human skull
        Now come on take a walk with me, Arlene
        And tell me, who do you love?
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?

        Tombstone hand and a graveyard mind
        Just twenty-two and I don’t mind dying
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?

        I rode a lion to town, used a rattlesnake whip
        Take it easy Arlene, don’t give me no lip
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?

        Night was dark, but the sky was blue
        Down the alley, the ice-wagon flew
        Heard a bump, and somebody screamed
        You should have heard just what I seen
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?

        Arlene took me by my hand
        And she said ooo-wee, Bo, you know I understand
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?
        Who do you love?

        Guess he really wanted to know. Is it true that Eliot saved the Nazi lover Pound from a firing squad?

        “Don’t send me no more letters no
        Not unless you mail them
        From Desolation Row”

        • Jarek March 21, 2024 at 1:34 pm #

          Interesting if so. Eliot spoke out a bit against the Jewish takeover, but no hero, he shut up when it was time to shut up. It had already happened at the higher levels in any case. Fait accompli. Or as the old saying goes, the fish rots form the head.

    “No Tesla is safe”, anarchists vow, as mysterious Vulkan Group declares War on Elon Musk after EV plant firebomb attacks in Brandenburg.

    I don’t see why this is newsworthy. According to Zaz, the eco-righteous are just exercising their freedom.

      Maybe EVS are the poster children for the climate changers in Europe, a group that is increasingly in the crosshairs.

      Wait until Biden tries to enforce the POS EV legislation that went into effect yesterday.

      You vill buy EVs, whether you want one or not.

      BTW, how the heck has the public been fooled that the MAGA folks are fascist and the Dems are champions of democracy when just the obvious is SO obvious.

    “Last night we cut off the tiny padlock to the breaker box of a butcher shop “pasture pdx” [in Portland, OR] and shut off their power to make the flesh they butchered unsellable. we also sealed the lock on the door with spray foam insulation. We also shut power to two adjacent stores because it was fun. These things are easily reproduceable and we encourage anarchists to think outside of the box. you can do other things then smash windows.”

            The liquidiation is already underway. The deaths from the shots continue to pile up, as the immune system of it’s recipients continues to be chipped away until it is non-existent.

            Ignoring it won’t stop it.

    OK! So the Kazars eliminate the Slavic Ukies making room for the Palestinian populace. Some say 10 million Ukies gone missing. So there is plenty of room and good farm land to farm, for Palestinians to learn farming from UN-EU Ngo instructors. Hey! Just maybe this solution would work.? Every body wins except the Ukranians?
    Oh my God . . .I just got out my dream nightmare!

    • jayrome March 21, 2024 at 11:40 am #

      Everybody wins . . .Palestinians can rebuild their society in peace as farmers. Israel gets the land to expand their society plus the bonus of off-shore oil/gas fields. Homer would say Woo Hoo! Is everybody Happy?

      • SoftStarLight March 21, 2024 at 12:43 pm #

        That actually may very well be the plan. I think the Ukraine war was an attempted territorial expansion of Khazaria. Fertile farmlands and all those natural resources in addition to their existing Middle Eastern holdings. Just imagine it! No matter what happens with the war Ukraine will never be the same, which is was the point too.

      • jayrome March 21, 2024 at 1:51 pm #

        An added Work-Project for Palestinians in the Ukraine would be Dealers of salvaged high quality scrap steel and aluminium. Just think of all the rich Mil-grade scrap metal just for the picking up. Free! Human ingenuity will figure out how to do that salvage operation and make a shit-ton of money too!
        Hey, let me know when the shooting stops there. I’d like to help them start salvage scrap yards with attached mills for casting ingots.

    So funny, yet so sad. Below are a few of my favorite excerpts, and a link to the article:

    Agents at the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and throughout the intelligence community were distributed a newsletter that celebrated an intelligence official for crossdressing, saying that dressing up in women’s clothes makes him “a better intelligence officer.”

    “Although I like wearing a bra, I know it isn’t comfortable for everyone, and is less comfortable after a few hours,” the stunning document from the office of the United States’ most powerful intelligence official reads. “On top of the biases that women often face at work, it must be hard to be uncomfortable too.”

    “I think my experiences as someone who crossdresses have sharpened the skills I use as an intelligence officer,” the anonymous intelligence officer claims, going on to say he is now “more aware of, and hopefully more supportive of, my women colleagues.” He expands on the point, saying that he has a “better appreciation for how it can be uncomfortable to wear women’s clothes sometimes.”

    “I know firsthand how wearing heels can make your feet hurt and make it take longer to walk somewhere,” he says.

How do we troll them? How do we manipulate, brainwash, or kill them?” This is the sort of thing that will make a man tie a noose around his neck and just get it over with already… This country gets harder every year to put up with.

    I hope everyone is enjoying their new astrological year!! If you are of European descent or have some European ancestry just do keep in mind that your ancestors were indeed witches. I never fully realized or appreciated the violence that the Gregorian calendar inflicts on the body, the mind and the spirit. Also keep in mind that we are now within a fire season of courage, determination, aggression, leadership and power. So its time to kinda wash learned helplessness and resignation away and cleanse the mind and soul of the slave programming that is now our culture.

          No salve, eh? Here is a nice poem I heard sung at a Wiccan celebration. I had no idea it was lifted from Rudyard Kipling until now.

          A Tree Song by Rudyard Kipling
          (A. D. 1200)
          Of all the trees that grow so fair,
          Old England to adorn,
          Greater are none beneath the Sun,
          Than Oak, and Ash, and Thorn.
          Sing Oak, and Ash, and Thorn, good sirs,
          (All of a Midsummer morn!)
          Surely we sing no little thing,
          In Oak, and Ash, and Thorn!

          Oak of the Clay lived many a day,
          Or ever AEneas began.
          Ash of the Loam was a lady at home,
          When Brut was an outlaw man.
          Thorn of the Down saw New Troy Town
          (From which was London born);
          Witness hereby the ancientry
          Of Oak, and Ash, and Thorn!

          Yew that is old in churchyard-mould,
          He breedeth a mighty bow.
          Alder for shoes do wise men choose,
          And beech for cups also.
          But when ye have killed, and your bowl is spilled,
          And your shoes are clean outworn,
          Back ye must speed for all that ye need,
          To Oak, and Ash, and Thorn!

          Ellum she hateth mankind, and waiteth
          Till every gust be laid,
          To drop a limb on the head of him
          That anyway trusts her shade:
          But whether a lad be sober or sad,
          Or mellow with ale from the horn,
          He will take no wrong when he lieth along
          ‘Neath Oak, and Ash, and Thorn!

          Oh, do not tell the Priest our plight,
          Or he would call it a sin;
          But–we have been out in the woods all night,
          A-conjuring Summer in!
          And we bring you news by word of mouth-
          Good news for cattle and corn–
          Now is the Sun come up from the South,
          With Oak, and Ash, and Thorn!

          Sing Oak, and Ash, and Thorn, good sirs
          (All of a Midsummer morn):
          England shall bide ti11 Judgment Tide,
          By Oak, and Ash, and Thorn!

            I don’t think this poem passes muster, Jarek. Museums in the UK are removing landscape and rural scene masterpieces on account of they ‘promote racism’, ‘foster national pride’, ‘and are unwelcoming to the immigrant community.’ They also promote White Supremacy. So they have to go.

    Queer Theory-Pedophilia Jeopardy with Derrick Jensen

    Derrick Jensen: There is a long correlation between anarchism and pedophilia and support for pedophilia.

    Audience: Outbursts of anger.

    Audience 1: Can you talk about something relevant?

    Derrick Jensen: Oh wait wait wait that’s a beautiful line, thank you so much for asking ‘How about something relevant? I’ve been talking about rape culture all day and pedophilia and the support of pedophilia is not rape culture?

    Actually, you’re acting as if this were a spurious connection so we’re gonna play Jeopardy. We’re gonna play Queer theory, pedophilia Jeopardy.

    Ok, answer: Commonly called the godfather of queer theory.

    Audience 1: Foucault.

    Audience 2: Who is Foucault?

    Derrick Jensen: Who is Foucault?! Ok 100 points!

    Hum Foucault, another way to ask this is: Who argued?… No I guess the answer would be: ‘Argued for the eradication of age of consent laws as in down to infants’.

    Audience 1: Who is Foucault?

    Audience 2: Thank you.

    Derrick Jensen: Ok, next one: The author of the founding document of queer theory.

    Audience 1: Who is Gayle Rubin?

    Derrick Jensen: Who is Gayle Rubin?!

    What percentage?… No, no the answer is: 50%. Question is?

    Audience 1: The amount in that article that was a defense of pedophilia, specifically the defense of Boy Lovers who were men not boys.

    Audience: Applause.

    Derrick Jensen: And since you’re not believing me: quote, quote, this is in the founding document of queer theory:

    ‘Like communists and homosexuals in the 1950s, Boy Lovers are so stigmatized that it is difficult to find defenders of their civil liberties let alone for their erotic orientation.’

    That’s in the founding document of queer theory. Oh I’m sorry I’m using facts!

    Audience: Laughter, applause.

    Derrick Jensen: A thousand a thousand apologies: one must never let facts on the way!

    Oh she also compared by the way pedophilia, (outbursts of anger in the room) she compared pedophilia to a preference for spicy food. The thing is I have never heard of anyone who asked to have years of therapy because they ate hot harissa soup.

    Audience: Applause.

    Derrick Jensen: Ok so up to 200. Now it is, now it is pedophilia and queer theory for 300. That would be: Author of Macho Sluts and Public Sex.

    Audience 1: Pat Califia !

    Derrick Jensen : Pat Califia !

    Audience 2: Derrick Jensen is an eco-fascist

    Audience: Laughter.

    Derrick Jensen: Wait, wait, wait, what was it that somebody said? Stay relevant!

    Audience: Laughter, applause, complaints.

    Derrick Jensen: Ok, let’s talk about Pat Califia.

    Audience: Complaints.

    Audience 1: Fucking transphobe.

    Audience: Complaints.

    Derrick Jensen: Here is something from one of Pat Califia’s books.

    Audience: Complaints.

    Derrick Jensen: You know it’s really interesting that when I actually start talking about the relationship between queer theory and anarchism and pedophilia that hum it becomes… they really want to shut me up now.

    Audience 1: They sure do.

    Audience: Outbursts of anger

    Derrick Jensen: Ok so here’s Pat Califia.

    Audience: Complaints.

    Audience: Indistinct debate.

    Audience 1: You’re a homophobe.

    Derrick Jensen: Pat Califia… Oh wait wait wait, just a second, just a second I was accused of homophobia because I am against pedophilia… Who is it who actually makes the connection between that?

    Audience: Applause.

    Derrick Jensen: Ok here’s something by Pat Califia.

    Audience: Complaints.

    Derrick Jensen: Pat Califia has written:

    ‘any child old enough to decide whether or not he or she wants to eat spinach, play with trucks or wear shoes is old enough to decide whether or not she wants to run around naked in the sun, masturbate, sit in someone’s lap or engage in sexual activity.’

    By which she does not mean play doctor, she means with adults, she’s very clear about that because she also says that pedophiles should be more and not less invested in children’s lives.

    Ok so we were at 300, 400! Is the most famous queer theorist of today, answer!

    Audience 1: Judith Butler.

    Derrick Jensen: No, it is not Judith Butler! It is ‘Who is Judith Butler’?

    Audience: Laughter.

    Derrick Jensen: Ok Judith Butler is the most famous queer theorist of the day.

    Audience 1: We see you all of you supporting here. You do not care about trans people’s lives.

    Audience: Complaints.

    Derrick Jensen: Ok, ok here’s a great quote from Judith Butler. Here’s a great quote from Judith Butler.

    Audience: Indistinct debate.

    Audience 1: That’s the fucking truth. You don’t care about trans people’s lives.

    Derrick Jensen: Ok, so Judith Butler wrote:

    ‘So, I keep adding this qualification: “when incest is a violation, suggesting that I think there may be occasions in which it is not. Why would I talk that way? Well, I do think that there are

    Audience 1: We see you!

    Well, I do think that there are probably forms of incest that are not necessarily traumatic or which gain their traumatic character by virtue of the consciousness of social shame that they produce.’

    Yeah that’s Judith Butler, that’s one of the queer heroes.

    Ok now we have for 500, we have the last one in the Queer theory and pedophilia. The answer is: queer theorist who has spoken out strongly against pedophilia?

    Audience 1: 0

    Audience 2: 0

    Audience 3: Who is no one?

    Derrick Jensen: Who is no one? Not a single one. Because the entire thing is based on transgressing.

    Audience 1: Dear fucking God.

    Derrick Jensen: Yeah, I know, dear fucking God!

    Jarek: This man is apparently an eco-philosopher. From his passion for the Truth, he sounds like someone we should know about. Has anybody read him? Or should I say red him?

    It would seem like the article I once read while working in a book/magazine store from the Anarchist Journal was not just a one off, but part of mainstream Anarchism. It was a record of people relating their positive sexual experiences as children with adults. The stories might be real. Or the whole thing might be made up. People this committed will lie, just as Capitalists devoted to making money will cheat.

    In any case, most children are not going to have positive experiences, quite the contrary. So deviations from the norm must not deter us from laying down the Law. All the more so since, as he says, the whole thing is based on Transgression. If this was to be accepted, they would have to up the ante to get their transgressive thrill, right? That doesn’t bode well for the children…..

    One also is reminded of the Libertarians. John Locke wrestling with the question of child labor and coming to the conclusion, the children were human beings(!) and had rights, including the right to work (and the right to have their hands torn off by the machines and the right to work 16 hour shifts until they fell asleep and fell into the machines). And of course our own beloved Kesa who doesn’t think childhood exists. Where does that idea lead? No place good….

    The Luddites were good anarchists. They didn’t hate the machines just the machines in the hands of capitalist scum.

          Jars, you can find the recipe in The Teachings of Don Juan, A Yaqui Way of Knowledge. You have the book, don’t you?

          But remember, Don Juan called it “the Devil’s Weed” and disdained its use.

    Glory! But it might not have been patriotic outrage or at least not just that. He spoke strongly to Biden against Israel. And he was accused of hiding a refugee camp for St Patrick’s tourists – as if there something shameful about replacing the Irish people.

    No matter. Anglin says they have another drainbow type guy waiting in the wings.

      Why does Israel think it’s so much better than every other country that they can’t be talked about? It’s just one country, and I don’t see anything that they’ve done to make them so much more special than every other country on earth that they should be immune to what people say about them. I swear these people think they are a GOD themselves. And yeah these countries will never be free until the people themselves take action…. Look at the Haitians they have a lot of chaos in their town BUT that’s the kind of action that will get rid of corrupt leaders that don’t give a shit about your country. Now Italians need to just get rid of Georgina sorry ass. But it won’t do any good if someone just as crappy and eager to flood Italy with Africans will take her spot and do the same self destruct BS.

    Well, ladies and germs;

    The balloon maybe going up;

    The Situational Awareness, this AM reports that France may be sending up to 20,000 troops to fight in (The) Ukraine.

    Apparently earlier French efforts at attacking Russia have been discounted…They’re gonna get it right, this time.

    (those fucking surrender monkeys are going to promote a nuclear exchange)…Oh, did I say that out loud?

    Forgive me.

      And…God help us, the quote;

      France is prepared to send 20,000 troops into Ukraine and could command up to 40,000 allied troops, according to the
