Gestapo the Steal

Despite all attempts to disable him in office, Mr. Trump, as president, got to see an awful lot of classified material, including all the evidence of Hillary Clinton’s Russia Collusion hoax, abetted by the FBI, the DOJ, CIA, and DOD, plus all the lawless shenanigans that took place in the FISA court….

To America’s political Left, serving its masters in the runaway deep state, reality itself must be portrayed as “baseless,” as in nothing to see here, folks. Is it any wonder, then, that half the country has gone mental. The reality they don’t want you to see is that the intel-and-surveillance agencies of our Republic have taken on a rogue life of their own as a dominant “fourth branch of government,” and that some time ago they embarked on a crime spree against anyone threatening their operations.

That would include especially target number one: Donald Trump. For a masterful explication of how this amazing clusterfuck developed, I commend you to The Conservative Treehouse website where the writer who styles himself as “Sundance” put together a four-part report on how the original sin of RussiaGate metastasized into the stage-four cancer of institutional necrosis that culminated in this week’s raid on Mar-a-Lago.

The gist is: it turns out that the president does not have sole authority, in practice, to declassify and release government documents. With the rise of the security state, many new procedures have been erected within that massive labyrinth to prevent it or slow-walk it. The most effective has been to make the president himself a target of, or a material witness in, drawn-out investigations. That was the exact purpose of the Mueller exercise. Any exculpatory documents released by Mr. Trump — for instance, the complete unredacted text exchanges of FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page — could have been used to hang an obstruction of justice charge on the president.

Mr. Trump adroitly avoided that trap, and many other legal pitfalls the deep state laid for him, and might have won reelection but for the well-organized ballot fraud of 2020. But the epic blunders of “Joe Biden” are giving Mr. Trump, and the movement behind him, a pretty good shot at routing the incumbent regime. Doing so, first in the 2022 midterms and then in the 2024 presidential election, portends a now quite visible effort coming to dismantle that reckless, unelected “fourth branch” of government. So, the intel-and-surveillance agencies are fighting for their lives — and the actual humans in charge must be keenly aware of their criminal liabilities.

Despite all attempts to disable him in office, Mr. Trump, as president, got to see an awful lot of classified material, including all the evidence of Hillary Clinton’s Russia Collusion hoax, abetted by the FBI, the DOJ, CIA, and DOD, plus all the lawless shenanigans that took place in the FISA court. A lot of it was assembled when, late in the game, Mr. Trump was finally able to appoint Directors of National Intelligence he could trust — Ric Grenell and then John Ratcliffe — who wrested many documents out of the foot-dragging agencies. Further maneuvers by artful Attorney General William Barr — the appointment of John Durham as Special Counsel and his drawn-out investigations — kept Mr. Trump from releasing any declassified RussiaGate material ever since. The catch was: he still had bales of that evidence in his possession among the personal papers he took with him from the White House.

Now, it also happens that in March of this year Mr. Trump filed a lawsuit in Florida against Hillary Clinton and many entities and persons who abetted the construction of RussiaGate. The person assigned to preside over the case was magistrate judge Bruce Reinhart, a one-time DOJ attorney who had been involved in the 2007 Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking prosecution, and who then mysteriously switched sides in mid-litigation and signed on as a lawyer for Epstein. Epstein was soon let off of serious charges with a wrist-slap, amid suspicions that he was an intel agency operative who required protection. And, of course, now Mr. Epstein is dead, offed under highly mysterious circumstances while in federal custody.

Bruce Reinhart was involved in the 2013 government defense of IRS officer Lois Lerner, who never answered for targeting conservative organizations for tax punishment and “losing” thousands of emails pertaining to the cases. Bruce Reinhart also left a long record of social media posts denouncing Mr. Trump for one thing or another. Yet, he remained as presiding judge over the Trump lawsuit against Hillary, et al., in Florida since March and then suddenly recused himself on June 22 of this year. Naturally, many of the aforesaid unclassified documents in Mr. Trump’s possession would be introduced as evidence in an effort to prove that Hillary Clinton sought to defame and defraud him over the confected Russia Collusion story.

And so it happened that Bruce Reinhart was just the right person for the FBI to seek a warrant from, though the choice looks ludicrous now. And hence, the desperate raid on Mar-a-Lago to get that trove of evidence, especially with an election looming that could transform congress and lead next year to a raft of investigations into the corrupt intel-and-surveillance deep state. Of course, it’s laughable to imagine there aren’t copies of all that material in other places, so it’s not as though the FBI can make the evidence just disappear. But the apparent object of the move is to hastily convict Mr. Trump in a DC federal district court on any Mickey Mouse charge involving his dispute with the National Archives that would, theoretically, prevent him from running again in 2024.

One must wonder if Mr. Trump did not catch the FBI (and DOJ) in a “rope-a-dope” operation of his own. He’d just come off a successful primary season in which over 90 percent of his endorsees won their races. The midterm elections look increasingly dire for the Democrats, the Party of Chaos, as led by the transcendentally incompetent “Joe Biden.” In June, Mr. Trump had met at Mar-a-Lago with FBI agents and produced many documents requested under a subpoena. Were the FBI and DOJ alarmed by what Mr. Trump handed over then, and did it suggest there was plenty of other material, possibly more damaging, in the former president’s collection headed into court? The momentous lawsuit against Hillary — which gets no coverage in the Left agit-prop news media — is not over.

In any case, the FBI and DOJ ended up embarrassing themselves with the August 8 Mar-a-Lago raid, an act as ham-fisted and tone-deaf as any in the nauseating annals of “Joe Biden’s” sinister regime. They outed themselves as an American Gestapo, dedicated chiefly to persecuting the ruling regime’s political enemies, and they probably succeeded in galvanizing even sturdier opposition to be expressed at the polling places this November, at great peril to the agencies’ officers, and perhaps even the agencies’ continued existence.

      The FBI was a more respectable law enforcement agency when it was led by a pug faced man in a dress who let gangsters pay for his vacations.

        Agree wholeheartedly. Enough of the lying bullshit from that fucking Wray. What a cocksucker, Wish I could of had some of these assholes in Vietnam, would have arranged their meeting with the almighty by putting them on point. Of course worthless pussy’s like Clapper never heard a round go by. When we let gutless pricks into positions of authority this is what happens. Trump is not really any different.

        • Beryl of Oyl August 12, 2022 at 10:27 am #

            Qshit, Although I sort of enjoy your little tantrums, had you read Faulkner, Tennessee Williams, Larry Brown, or Ron Rash etc. during your brain’s formative years, you would realize that language is a tool for understanding, not a list of grammar laws that must be obeyed.

            ===========

            And yet, for some reason, your comment abides perfectly with those grammar laws. Why is that? Don’t bother answering. It’s because you understand that abiding by the established rules of grammar you are more likely to be perfectly understood.

            Reference “Eats shoots and leaves.”

          • Islander August 14, 2022 at 6:07 pm #

            “not a list of grammar laws that must be obeyed.”

            Oh, please.

            Is it really beyond your abilities or the abilities you ascribe to your fellow humans, or fellow CFNers, to distinguish between a verb, “have,” and a preposition, “of”?

            “Could of” makes zero sense.

            This is not about grammar.

            I also cringe at “that” used in reference to humans.

          • Nigel Tufnel August 14, 2022 at 8:25 pm #

            Q – love you man, and glad you’re here. Part of the family. You make it fun. I’m grammitcally correct because it was hammered into me in a very strict high school. As you can see, the spelling part didn’t really ‘take’, and i hate spellcheck.

      • Beryl of Oyl August 12, 2022 at 10:32 am #

        If you are any kind of cop, you do lose your pension if you commit criminal acts. That’s why you will often see those in law enforcement file their retirement papers the moment they are accused of some kind of malfeasance.

        You also see an effort to pin everything on the lowest guy on the totem pole, because he’s the one who will be easiest to take care of in return for taking the fall.

        If this sounds like gangster behavior, that’s because it is gangster behavior. These people are gangsters with badges.

          The similarities of today and the run up of power for Hitler are becoming striking. This time however the global power structure is already in place,

          Just waiting.

          We have a Gestapo, Brownshirts, the intimidation factors that can dominate a population. Compliments of the DNC and its RINO auxiliary. The Deep State has already succeeded in the domination of America.

          Finding a way to escape is the only possibility left. I feel like a Jew in Germany in the late 30s.

          • thirdcoastlegend August 12, 2022 at 11:06 am #

            AZ: I feel the same. Leaving the US Corp is more difficult than it sounds, but probably the best option. However, there are multiple states planning to vote on secession in 2023. If that movement is successful, then we’re probably going to face backlash from blue state blue hairs in high heels swinging battle dildos attacking those of us in secession states who are heavily armed with rifles and ammo. CW2 could be a big joke.

          • Woodchuck August 12, 2022 at 2:33 pm #

            We all might feel like Jews and Germans waiting for the “good guys” to invade and kick out our illegitimate government. Eventually, the Nazis got wiped out – but a what cost? The cost was destroyed German infrastructure and countless millions dead. Perhaps Russia and China will step forward and take us down and take us apart just as we once did to the Nazis. The cost in lives to accomplish this will doubtless be in the millions, possibly billions of lives lost. Also, since the human race can’t understand it’s own history and cannot understand why republics and democracies don’t work well – we’ll keep doing this over and over.

            Of course they are JohnAZ, that was the eventuality that the Kennedy brothers both fear and fought (to the death BTW) – the unholy marriage of organized crime and the federal government. They are long ago not only married but are an old couple with so much wealth, power, and control that I cannot see how any of this can be reversed or even stopped.

            The decent, working US government had the motto of “We are the government and we are here to help.” They now decry, “Shut up and pay!” Don Corleone came right out and told us all that one day the mob would OWN the government and so they have.

            There is a big difference today with law enforcement from what it was when I was growing up. My uncle was a police officer in Hillside, NJ and had to work a second job as a milkman in order to support his family before he made deputy chief. The cops today, at least around here have substantial salaries pensions, (what’s that?), and great, affordable benefits. The cops of old were in no way owned by their employer as they are today and also had moral compasses that seem to be a thing of the past. NO, I am not talking about every one of them, because I have many in my family that cling to the beliefs and work ethics of those who came before us. But many, especially the FBI (Fucking Brainless Idiots), are as sold out as Al Capone’s street thugs.

            It is those who will do anything to protect their paychecks and pensions that we have to be concerned with. I do not know how many have adopted this mentality or how many still hold true to the idea of “protect and serve”, and who understand and revere the US Constitution, only the Good Lord has access to that database.

            Let us hope that there are enough out there that look back to their grandfathers, fathers, brothers and sisters and uncles and understand that the tradition and values that THEY held, are what we ALL need to hold and nurture. Godspeed all.

            And how many “good men and women” doctors resigned rather than following orders to inoculate children with an unproven experimental gene alteration procedure? A handful at best. How many bothered to investigate the fact that the mRNA drug delivery procedure had never gotten beyond the animal test stage because the subjects kept dying?

            How many “good men and women” bothered to read the Nuremberg Accord prohibition against medical experimentation on human subjects without their fully informed consent? The very definition of a minor child is that they are incapable of giving informed consent.

            How many Pfizer executives, their spokesmen like Dr. Fauci, their traveling drug pusher salesmen, and the millions of doctors and nurses who pushed the needle gave a moments thought that their actions are subject to the death penalty if they were to face a world court of law in a Nuremberg II? No, they have complete faith that justice will never prevail.

        At this point it looks like Federal “intel and surveillance agencies”, including the FBI — like the Cheka/NKVD, the SD/Gestapo, and later on the Stasi — is an unstoppable monolith capable of crushing anything or anybody who stands in its way.

        That’s where all power lies. Yes there is the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, but who gives a sh#t that anymore. Power, raw power, backed up by a corrupt financial system, AR-15s, and the largest prison system in the world, is what matters now.

        I concur, and I say this speaking as a former fed who once worked for one of the big 3-letter agencies.

        As I’ve grown older I’ve come to see how dangerous they all of them are to our constitutional liberties.

        My personal preference would be to “sunset” every single federal department, agency, bureau, etc. that has been created since 1791. Strip the whole federal government back down to the bare essentials originally erected by the Founders. Then, slowly, with great deliberation, start over again.

        The founder’s original vision was of a federal government of very specifically delegated and LIMITED powers. That needs to be the guiding principle going forward. If the constitution does not authorize a power as being possessed by the federal government, then no act of Congress granting such powers should be enacted. If Congress ignores this guiding principle, then any unconstitutional laws granting powers to the feds that rightly are reserved only to the States should be immediately declared NULL and VOID by the States and the SCOTUS.

        We may need a constitutional amendment to create an ironclad mechanism to insure that ALL new laws passed by Congress face an IMMEDIATELY judicial review to assess the constitutionality of the proposed laws BEFORE they go into effect. This would prevent much mischief. It would also be a strong deterrent to Congress to waste it’s time trying to pass unconstitutional federal power grabs.

          The way I understand it, the Articles of Confederation were that document.
          We were taught in school that the Articles were flawed. It was only a few years ago that I found out that the flaw was only in the eyes of those wealthy men who gathered in Philadelphia, locked themselves in a room with the windows boarded up, and wrote a new document giving far more powers to the federal government.

          And here we are today. I think we need to go back to the Articles of Confederation, plus the Bill of Rights.

          • JohnAZ August 12, 2022 at 3:11 pm #

            The Articles were weak. Nothing got done. Administration by committee never works. There was no executive function. One of the changes was the executive branch and the presidency to execute laws.

            The FF were really afraid of the Constitution due to this change. Concerned about one man rule.

            Exactly what we should be afraid of right now.

        • Woodchuck August 12, 2022 at 2:45 pm #

          I’ve written this before. We’re at the end of our expiration date. Republics and democracies have inate design flaws that prevent them from lasting very long. They get taken over by criminals and psychopaths and then you basically have no leaders. Instead what the republic has while dying is a rotten bloated parasite attached to it that eventually kills the host. Then you start over, completely mystified as to why democracy doesn’t work. Futile efforts arise to keep trying this until we get it right. We’ll never get it right because elected officials always conduct looting operations during the time they are in office. The don’t own the country – they are just renting it for a while, and people are the same the world over. They only have the time and energy to care about what they own. rentals? Why should we care about things that aren’t ours?

          A monarchy, on the other hand, has an incentive to keep a kingdom happy and prosperous. A real monarch owns his kingdom and wants to pass on something of value and is concerned about its long term prosperity. That’s why the House of Wittelsbach successfully ran Bavaria for some 700 years. The Nazis only ran it for a dozen years or so before they failed completely.

            Failed completely? You mean crushed by the International Bankers and their misguided legions of American and Russian yahoos?

            You evidently have never heard of the economic miracle of Nazi Germany. After a few short years, even normal German workers were taking vacations – and were encouraged to do so. The essence of the miracle? The parasite bankers and their debt based money had been chased out. Obviously the Internationalists had to act before other countries caught on and did the same thing.

            A return to Monarchy? Now you’re talking. But of course that would mean a return to religion as well. A very big change. National Socialism tried to attain the stability of Monarchy and Tradition in a way that accorded with the needs of the Industrial age, including a strong nation state. The experiment was by no means a total failure, but of course was cut short by outside forces.

        In truth, the FBI has never been a law enforcement agency. It’s a domestic intelligence agency, designed by J Edgar Hoover to be used for political purposes by one man, as a means of gaining undue influence within the US government.

        Hoover took over the Bureau of investigation and remade it into what he meant to be his own fiefdom. Once Hoover was gone, the agency has been used by political party bosses for their own short sighted purposes.

        The FBI should be defunded permanently and disbanded, IMO.

      The mumble is getting louder. If the Republicans control only the House and not the Senate, they cannot block Biden’s appointments. They can, however, cut off funding to EVERY bureaucracy that has oppressed their voters. They have the power of the purse, and they could use it as a nuclear option. Two years of no funding and imperial Dc goes out of business.

      Will they do it? Not a chance. But maybe they take down one agency pour encourager les autres.

      • Wizard of the Saddle August 12, 2022 at 12:27 pm #

        The power of the purse is the most potent power possessed by the U.S. House of Representatives. It has long astounded and perplexed me why the GOP does not utilize this power like the sickle that it is to slash and burn every federal department, bureau, and agency that is abusing the citizens of this country.

        Trust me, if there is one thing that will immediately seize the attention of ANY federal official or bureaucrat, it is a cut in their funding or a credible threat to do so.

        As the saying goes, “Money is the mother’s milk of politics.” That also goes for Big Government. “Mo Money, No Power.” The GOP is talking a lot of smack right now about doing this in 2023, but their history is “all talk and no action.” Will this time be any different? I sort of doubt it. But the threat we face if very different, and that should concentrate the minds of at least the Freedom Caucus members and others in the MAGA wing of the party. At least I’m hoping so.

      Yes! It is amazing what the primary source of news dissemination has on the politics of an area.

      New York City has The NY Times, DC has the Post., both Liberal rags. So the public involved, Democrats, Progressives.

      The Left over the decades have been astute at Getting power where it counts, the press, the courts and the DA offices. The elective Deep State is still a variable, but becoming less so as the constrictor called the Mob takes over. The vote is just about worthless now.

    The FBI’s actions may be ham-fisted but most liberals that I know fully support it and believe Trump must be sent to jail though they can never give me a reason why. Of course, these same people tell me that Trump is a Russian agent and that Trump led some sort of insurrection on Jan 6th.

    Being this ignorant about current affairs does come with some consequences though. These same people are also triple vaxxed, double-masked, and live in fear. Of course, there are two fewer of them just in this last week as “died suddenly and for no reason” has struck again.

          Secession initially seems to be the answer. Although, in this case, since about 30 states are “free” and about 20 states are “tyrannical” it is my view that the 30 should have the right, as the majority, to kick-out the 20.

          But, of course, that is unlikely to happen because the states are not uniformly “Red” or “Blue.” This is a rural vs. urban fight, for the most part, but even then, it’s not clear cut.

          Some have suggested that existing state lines don’t really work for effecting a proper political partition of the country. An alternative would be to allow the country to be carved up along the lines of county boundaries. This would result in about 90+ off the land mass of the USA going to a new Ruby Red Republic while the insane Wokesters in the Big Blue cities would become a confederation of Woke city states or perhaps independent city states.

          Something along these lines is inevitable, IMHO. I don’t much care for Abe Lincoln, but he was partially correct in observing that “A House Divided Cannot Stand.” It cannot – if two sides that will never agree on anything are locked in a perpetual struggle to control a single house. However, a DUPLEX could solve the problem. That kind of house will stand. Each side retreats to their respective half of the duplex and can do as they please. Good walls make for good neighbors.

          • Anthea August 12, 2022 at 3:12 pm #

            Perhaps the thing to do with the big blue cities would be to allow them the option of joining with the rest of the state in secession or becoming independent city-states. The prospect of functioning as self-sustaining entities whose population’s productivity would provide for everyone’s needs would terrify them.

            In Missouri, our two big blue cities are both on state lines, one on the Kansas state line and the other on the Illinois state line. So each of these could be given the option of joining up with a neighboring state–if the neighboring state would have them. In the case of Kansas City, Missouri, it seems unlikely to me that the state of Kansas would be willing to annex it. The people on the Kansas side view KCMO as practically a no-go zone. Not sure what KCMO would do if both Kansas and Missouri rejected them.

          • Woodchuck August 12, 2022 at 3:23 pm #

            Everyone is looking for answers. Here’s a possible answer, and it’s that the only way to have a stable form of government is via a monarchy. And this is the answer nobody wants to hear. But here it is anyway – from the Mad Monarchist:

            “Rebutting Republican Myths:

            Monarchies are un-democratic!
            Not true. Actually, most monarchies in the world today are more democratic than most republics in the world. Further, in most republics (even the United States) the President is not directly elected by the people anyway. However, being democratic is not necessarily a good thing. Benevolent leaders and bloodthirsty dictators have both come to power through democracy.

            Monarchies are too expensive!
            Not true, not by a long shot. Some monarchs (such as the Prince of Liechtenstein) cost the public nothing at all. In the United Kingdom, the money the Queen grants the government from the Crown Estates is considerably more than the allowance she receives from the Civil List, so Britain effectively makes money off the monarchy. Republics often spend more on their presidents, past presidents and first families than monarchies do on their royal houses. Many countries (like Australia, Jamaica or Canada) share a monarch and pay nothing and monarchies do not have the constant, massive expense of elections and political campaigns for the top job.

            Hereditary monarchy just isn’t fair!
            Why not? How can any system for determining national leadership be absolutely fair? It hardly seems fair that one person should receive the top job simply because he or she is more popular. Surely the correct criteria should be how qualified a person is rather than if they are good at making speeches, more photogenic or being more gifted at graft and deceit. In a monarchy the top job goes to someone trained from birth to fill that role. In a republic, even under the best circumstances, an elected president will take half their term learning to do the job and the other half campaigning to retain it; hardly a model of efficiency. Hereditary succession seems much more “fair” than granting power to those able to swindle enough money and promise enough favors to the powerful to obtain the highest office in the land.

            Monarchies are dangerous! What if the monarch is incompetent?
            The same question could be asked about republican leaders. However, rest assured, monarchs who are not capable of fulfilling their duties can be replaced and have been throughout history. Take two of the oldest and most stable monarchies; in Great Britain, when King George III became incapacitated the Prince of Wales was made regent and exercised his duties for him. Similarly, in Japan, when the Taisho Emperor was no longer able to fulfill his duties, the Crown Prince took over those duties for him as regent. On the other hand, even in the most successful republic in the world, the United States, only two presidents have ever been impeached and neither one was actually removed from office.

            Monarchy is an archaic throwback! It’s simply out of date!
            Certainly monarchy is an ancient institution as it developed naturally from the dawn of time and the growth of human civilizations. However, democracy and republicanism is just as archaic. The Greek city-states of ancient times tried direct democracy and found it of very limited value, lasting only so long as people found out they could vote themselves the property of others. Republicanism was tried on a large-scale by the ancient Romans and yet they too found that it caused too many divisions, factions and civil wars before they decided a monarchy was preferable. The oldest republic in the world today was founded in 301 AD. How out of date is that?

            What about cruel monarchs like Nero or Attila the Hun? Surely no benefits could be worth risking leaders like that!
            Actually, far more people have been butchered in wars or massacred by those in power since the start of the revolutionary period than in all history previously. Nero or Attila the Hun were unsavory characters but nowhere near as bad as republican monsters like Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Mao Zedong or Pol Pot. It has only been in the post-revolutionary era of mass politics and political ideologies that governments have taken to killing their own people in huge numbers. Nero was cruel to his own family and later persecuted Christians who were still a tiny minority and Attila the Hun, as ruthless as he was toward his enemies, ruled his own people well from what we know and with justice. No monarch ever wiped out as many of their own people as the communist dictators of the Twentieth Century, all of whom did so in the name of “the people” and “fairness”.

            Royals are too out of touch. They have no idea how regular people live.
            Some people believe this, but it simply isn’t true. Queen Elizabeth II was a mechanic and truck driver during World War II, the King of Thailand is a renowned jazz musician and composer, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark has painted illustrations for several books, including the Danish edition of “The Lord of the Rings”. The Emperor of Japan grows his own rice, the King of Cambodia was a practically anonymous dance instructor before coming to the throne and many royal heirs take ordinary jobs, often in obscure places where they are unknown, after finishing school. Despite what people think, royal life is not all champagne and caviar. Compare this to many presidents who have often never worked outside the public sector in their entire lives, never served in the military (as most royals do) or ever known any other life besides making speeches and casting votes.

            At best, monarchs are unnecessary. A president could do just as good a job.
            Not true at all. Some republics have ceremonial presidents that are supposed to be non-political but they still invariably have a political background and are beholden to the party that appoints them. A monarch, on the other hand, is above all political divisions and has a blood connection to the history of the country, its traditions and most deeply held beliefs. No politician could ever represent a people in the way a monarch can whose family history has been the history of the country itself.

            Monarchies must be bad or else there would be more of them!
            That argument could only begin to make sense if most monarchies had fallen because of a conscious decision by the whole people to see them end. This has certainly not been the case. Most monarchies have fallen because of brute force exerted by a powerful, motivated minority or because their country was defeated in war and their state collapsed. How about looking at how people live? The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development annually puts out a list of the best countries to live in based on a variety of factors and monarchies invariably outrank republics by far. Last year, 2012, is a typical case with 8 out of the top 10 best countries to live in being monarchies; the only republics to make the top 10 were the United States and Switzerland. If republics are so great, shouldn’t their people be living better lives than those in monarchies?

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

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

            @ farmgal:

            I like farmland, particularly if it’s not endless acres of governement-subsidized corn and soy, grown by a big corporation.

            The Ozark Mountains in the southern part of Missouri are beautiful: lots of pure, clear spring-fed streams (ice cold), dense oak-hickory forests, caves, and rugged scenery. I’d highly recommend going on a family float trip while passing through. Our favorite spot was Onondaga Cave State Park, near Cuba, Missouri, where you can float the Merimec River. The campgrounds are nice (hot showers, laundry facilities) and well maintained. There’s a good swimming spot right in the campground. The river is always high enough that you don’t have to portage the raft (or canoe or kayak) very much, if at all. The cave is also pretty cool, both literally and figuratively. Worth a visit.

            Before Prohibition, Missouri was the number one wine producing state in the US. Vinyards and wineries are making a comeback here.

            There seems to be an ever-increasing Amish presence in Missouri’s rural areas. I’m in the exurbs of Kansas City, but I recently noticed one of those highway signs reminding you that there may be horses and buggies on the road has appeared on a local main highway.

            In the exurbs, our farm fields are increasingly broken up into 5, 10, and 20-acre “estate size” lots, with people building often pretty fancy houses on them. (Or sometimes quite modest ones.) These small acreages are ideal for a fairly high level of self-sufficiency–and that may be at least part of the idea in the minds of the buyers, besides just getting out of the city. The proliferation of such homes has become quite stunning.

            Johnson County, Missouri, is known for having no building codes. Some areas of these exurbs are still quite inexpensive. My former residence of 20 years was a down-at-the-heels lake community–a poor person’s paradise. Twenty years ago you could hardly give away property there. (You had to haul water back then, and your neighbors might be hillbillies living in a trailer.) Now it’s an up-and-coming place, though still quite cheap.

          The method by which they’ve accomplished the dumbing down is increasingly transparent, and you can see it in the developmental phase with their present promotion of pedophilia.

          First: Manipulate perceptions by changing the language to suggest something bland and harmless. Pedophiles now become Minor Attracted Persons (MAPS). What could be more harmless than a map?

          Second: Plant lots of articles, using the new, judgment-free term, at the edges of the mainstream media so that it begins to filter into the public consciousness simply because they hear or read it.

          Third: Go to work on the most psychologically vulnerable, those who are always the first to support the narrative, i.e., the weak minded and suggestible who are ruled by their emotions. Get them to accept the pedos (now MAPS) as a new oppressed class (not in any way difficult) who have to be affirmed. Let them get to work spreading this narrative and beginning to garner support and sympathy for the persecuted MAPS in places you would expect to be immune. This builds an air of legitimacy.

          Fourth: Involve the next tier of stupid shills and psychologically damaged Karens (you can see these everywhere now in the women who push, coach, and reward their little kids to “come out” as trans, and attack any opposition under the guise of defending their children). These are people who will support any narrative once it reaches some perceived critical mass, particularly if they see a role they can play that appeals to their toxic narcissism and desire to bully people.

          Fifth: Invent a term with which to attack and smear anyone who objects to this process. The term has to be sufficiently offensive so that the next tier of idiots will not want it applied to themselves and will go to some lengths to prevent that from happening. We’ll see, in this case, what they come up with.

          Sixth: Attach a punishment to the accusations, so that being labelled with the term mentioned above results in serious consequences – social stigma, cancellation, loss of employment. This last step will pull in many who realize what is happening but are too afraid to say so or have too much to lose. These last may briefly resist, but an example will be made of them and they’ll be compelled to affirm, apologize, crawl, cringe, and submit to the inevitable struggle session. Even this usually doesn’t help them, but serves as a warning to others who may be similarly inclined.

          Seventh: Churn up the hatred and desire to persecute and bully that is just beneath the surface of the worst of these people, who ordinarily are not in a position to act out but are full of anger and resentment that’s seeking an outlet. Ramp it up constantly. Language used on the cable news channels is particularly effective. You probably all recall that they couldn’t let a sentence pass without mentioning Trump, and always with the word “lied” or “liar” attached to his name. This actively recruits the worst among us, from which you could derive your concentration camp guards should you require them.

          At this point, they’ve got everyone they possibly can – the stupid, the crazy, the vindictive, the resentful, the scared, the go along to get along, the ideologically possessed, even those who normally ignore politics (once the punishments begin, it’s impossible for most people in the working world to avoid taking a stand). Now their only opposition is the brave, the red pilled, the inveterately contrary, and those with nothing left to lose.

          The number of these last is growing as more people succumb to effects of the vax, but I’m not sure that it’s changing anyone’s mind. It seems the more they’ve lost as a result of their stupidity, the more emotionally invested in the narrative they become. I’ve seen in my own family that when someone dies in what’s clearly a response to the vax, they dig in and come up with all sorts of excuses almost as ridiculous as climate change, gardening, or taking a shower. If they didn’t do this, they’d have to admit that they encouraged loved ones to walk into the oven. That would be devastating, and they just won’t do it.

            During the first campaign, every single time Lester Holt referred to a statement by candidate Trump, he called it “rhetoric”. Every. Single. Time.

            Aside from the fact that rhetoric does not mean what Lester thinks it does, just what did Lester think he was doing? Didn’t he question what he was handed to read?

          • Wizard of the Saddle August 12, 2022 at 12:43 pm #

            Yes, this is how the Woke Left operates. But it is unsustainable. Just as Radical Feminism has just about totally destroyed the institution of marriage and the creation of stable families, the normalization of pedophilia will lead to millions of people choosing NOT to start families at all, thus leading to a population collapse amongst all residents of the country, citizens and non-citizens, legal and illegal, alike.

            As is always the case with institutionalized insanity, it will only continue until it no longer can.

            The sad part, though, is that millions will suffer in the interim while awaiting the inevitable collapse of their society.

          Thoughtful conservatives recognized the fact that government schools produce compliant, dependent, sheeple YEARS ago. These conservatives became home schoolers and pulled their children from the government indoctrination centers. The Leftist vermin HATE home schooling for this reason and have attacked home schoolers for years.

          • Jarek August 12, 2022 at 1:07 pm #

            Yes, there are the Paleos, but they have no access to either the halls of power or the mass media.

            Tucker has become one. Thus he is “on vacation” right now.

          • Anthea August 12, 2022 at 6:15 pm #

            The home-school movement really began to get legs in the early 1980s, but it was still considered “fringe,” even by “conservatives” back then, who considered home-schoolers to be religious kooks. You have to bear in mind that most “conservatives” were, at least in the past, staunchly statist. Their ranks were made up of doctors, lawyers, accountants, insurance-company personnel–in short, people who were beholden to the state and whom the statist system had treated very well indeed. In general, schoolteachers (in the “better” school districts) were numbered among “conservatives” of this type.

            If you were a home-schooler, a home-birther, or an anti-vaxxer, “conservatives” of this kind would come after you with their guns a-blazing, if they had the opportunity. Two midwives of my acquaintance went to jail thanks to such “conservatives,” and our area’s finest naturopathic doctor lost his license to practice medicine when the Board of Healing Arts came after him.

          • Anthea August 12, 2022 at 6:23 pm #

            The naturopathic doctor I was speaking of was Dr. Lawrence Doorman. He was an MD as well as a naturopath and had a HUGE practice in Independence, Missouri. Usually, when you went to see the guy, his waiting room was packed. Fees were modest, though not covered by insurance. In the 1990s, an office visit was $50. Most prescriptions were for herbal preparations you could buy next door, also for a relatively modest price. The three herbs he prescribed for my daughter’s psoriasis in 1999 came to a total of about $50. The treatment worked, by the way.

      • Anthea August 12, 2022 at 6:29 pm #

        I’ve always suspected that Trump’s bad faith and/or lack of resolve in some matters, especially after the stolen election, were because of threats against his life–or, more likely, threats against the lives of Melania and his children. This is not exactly without precedent. More like standard operating procedure.

        • TPTB-USA August 13, 2022 at 10:24 am #

          Trump boasts of being “Master of the Deal”.

          If he operates according to parameters, and the parameters only allow for a bad outcome, then he has to sit on it until the parameters change to the point where he could come up with an acceptable deal.

          • Anthea August 13, 2022 at 1:58 pm #

            Seems to me that the only way to make a deal with people who would just as soon kill you as look at you is to have an equally strong and ruthless organization of your own. If Trump made a fatal error, I’d say it was the failure to be thus organized before he ran for president.

            So…. Where would you find a ruthless, well funded, powerful, well armed, well manned organization that could effectively checkmate threats against you and your family by making a credible counter-threat? The only such organization that I can think of would be a Mexican drug cartel. But they are already owned by the federal government and the banks.

          • TPTB-USA August 14, 2022 at 12:23 am #

            Trump was a bit naive and did not think in terms of having to deal with a third world opponent “who would just as soon kill you” (and I suspect that he is still a bit naive in this regard).

            Just consider all the leaks and all the people he was firing initially, and his nonchalant attitude about the format for the Mueller investigation (early on Alan Dershowitz pointed out that the investigation should have been all encompassing).

            My read was that he didn’t think that he did anything improper, so he had no reason for concern.

    • JackStraw August 12, 2022 at 10:13 am #

        Unification is being accomplished by totalitarian means, elimination of the opposition. It is too late for Trump now. The vote is obsolete.

        Thank God the Dems have saved out democracy. Think, in the Democratic sense, this jackbooting is democracy.

        The only way out for patriots is secession. It is impossible to get any sort of control back.

          “The only way out for patriots is secession. It is impossible to get any sort of control back.”

          That’s pretty much guaranteed. Martin Armstrong has been saying that for several years now that the United States will breakup. He did a recent interview with Greg Hunter on USAWatchdog dot com and he spoke about the USA breaking up.

          I would post the link but it will go and stay in moderation.

        • Wizard of the Saddle August 12, 2022 at 1:08 pm #

          John – I agree, but I am of the view that the word “secession” – while technically accurate – is too loaded of a term, given our history in this country and the government school indoctrination that has convinced hundreds of millions of Americans that secession is somehow illegal, unconstitutional, impractical, or simply “settled by the Civil War.”

          While wrong on all counts, why go down the rabbit hole with the people who want to get us sidetracked debating “secession.” Instead, use the word “partition.” No history to deal with. It is functionally more malleable too, since partition can be effected through many schemes while “secession” was, historically, an action taken by a State to rescind it’s ratification of the constitution, thus rendering it independent of the federal union.

          Partition is how colonial India was carved up into modern India and Pakistan. That’s the model.

          We dodged a bullet there when China refused to take the bait and shoot down that plane (no matter how many Americans were egging them on), but it was impressive that so many people cared about the start of WW3 enough to watch the process.

            Paula, gazing from afar upon the hubbub of Norteamerica, it looks like people have succumbed to “nuclear amnesia”.

            I sure haven’t. I was terrified in October 1962 and had a pickup truck loaded with food and weapons, ready to head out from Austin for the Mexican border (dispersed fallout patterns in the mountains of Northern Mexico). Doubt whether the Mexican border guards would have let everyone through but I was 90% convinced that Kennedy would go for it. LeMay and others were urging him on. My elder brother, a USAF tanker pilot, commented “The only danger to us would have been from our bombers running into each other.”

            It’s not just the physical damage from even a single nuclear detonation over an urban or military center. The panic and confusion would freeze up all systems and crash the delicately interconnected global economy.

            The USA has never been bombed. Impossible to imagine. Thus the recklessness and arrogance.

            Note that the Ukrainians are still shelling the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant with the clear intent to cause an explosion or meltdown.
            This will send radiation all over the newly liberated parts of Ukraine and most likely Europe.
            The Mighty Wurlitzer of propaganda is telling us that the Russians are bombing their own soldiers in the nuclear power plant.

            This is because our ruling overlords think we are absolute idiots. And apparently enough people are absolute idiots that they don’t change the bullshit.

      I think that narrative is complete and total bullshit. Even if the FBI produces a document that is a classified one pertaining to nuclear weapons in one way or another I have two reactions to that:

      1) Why is it a big deal – other than the fact that the SCARY WORDS “nuclear weapons” are used to describe the document?

      2) Since the FBI physically prevented Trump’s attorneys from following them around the premises of MEL to watch what they did and what they took, how do we KNOW that the document was there and not planted there by the bureau?

      So – no, I am not impressed by this latest stratagem of the Wokester Regime.

        You’re thinking by the rule book, Wizard. You know, like decent, ordinary people often do. We are way beyond that. It’s very simple: the Dems CANNOT lose power. They need to finish destroying America. Ergo, they will do anything they can to destroy Trump and win the election in Nov. Many think that the MAL was a fishing expedition. I believe it was more a planting trip. They will plant any stuff on him that sticks, including the nuclear garbage. The evil SoBs don’t or can’t do reverse gear, so I think they will indict Trump and arrest him. Then they’ll declare martial law to “safeguard” the election. I hope in a few months’ time we have both houses and I look stupid. Let’s see.

He had all the proof he needed against the Biden cartel, had in his possession the Hunter laptop and kept the truth from the American people and was probably instrumental in helping the dems. put their senile patsy, Biden in office.

      Okay. No defense of the FBI coming from me, but we discredit ourselves as credible critics if we paint with too broad of a brush.

      I honestly think that there are decent people working in the federal government – even the 3-letter agencies and bureaus – but there are clearly MANY working for the FBI who need to do an integrity check on themselves.

      The agents who participated in an unjustified and historically unprecented raid on a former president’s residence should all have refused to follow those orders. It is clear to the entire country that this raid was politically motivated and corrupt. By failing to resign, the agents who participated in this raid violated their oaths to uphold the constitution and should all be subject to being fired by the next administration.

      So, it is better that we keep our focus where it belongs – on condemning the corrupt people at the top and those in the rank-and-file who violate their oaths and allow themselves to be used as armed thugs to promote tyranny.

  14. Irish August 12, 2022 at 10:18 am #

    It would not surprise me in the least if the alleged “mole” turned out to be the lure that enticed the FBI to raid in the first place. Never underestimate Trump’s ability to play 4-D chess, while the rest of the pikers in DC are fumbling around with checkers. I’m sure that place was completely wired for sound and video too and I can’t wait to see what Trump releases next.

    On another note, what if Trump actually does have something? Something so scandalous and so incriminiating that the Deep State will stop at nothing to retrieve it? Something like Ghislane’s black book or knowledge about why secret settlement monies were paid to sitting members of Congress?

    I think the “October Surprise” is that Joe Biden is going to convienently drop dead right before the mid-terms and the election is going to be put on indefinite hold while the country “mourns.” If I was him, I would be very afraid. It’s not like he can count on his wife to properly support him. She’s in on it too.

    I weep for the state of my beautiful country.

      • Wizard of the Saddle August 12, 2022 at 1:27 pm #

        If they did that, the proper response would be for the state legislatures of every Free State left in this union to convene in special session and vote to nullify the martial law edicts. The governors of said states should also order local law enforcement to arrest and detain all federal agents and/or federal military officers in their states who attempt to enforce the regime’s unconstitutional power grab. This is why we have federalism, folks. The founders were no dummies. They knew that the States would always have to be a VERTICAL check on federal power run amok.

        They have to pull something like that. Voter fraud might do the trick again, but they can’t rely upon that.

        Sadly, this is true. No one is ever allowed to be “neutral” in a civil war and we are presently in a cold civil war that occasionally flares up into localized incidents of politically motivated violence. The next ratchet up will likely be into something akin to what Northern Ireland went through for decades with “The Troubles.” Hang on to your asses, folks.

      JFK had his brother. As David Talbot relates it, Joe told Bobby he had to go back to DC to watch out for his brother, as reluctant as he was to return to DC. That was about it for protection.

      With the passage of time the acknowledged need for layers of protection has grown.

      example: DJTs personal jet was in for extensive overhaul while he had AF1 access. If I had his jet and his money in his position, it would have emerged with much more sophisticated security features than it had going into the shop.

    It feels like something big is coming. It just never does. Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. But in the meantime, we wait and keep working/going to our proverbial Walmarts.

        I think we all could try to understand our minds a little better. We have greatness in us, yet we wait for the next car wreck at the NASCAR race, with quiet, guilty pleasure. That’s what I’m talking about. The pandemic changed the country forever, the needless baseless riots in celebration of a criminal changed the country forever, but over half of the people still don’t seem to know that. They need to be slapped in the face, and I’m just saying something like that is coming. I just don’t know if that’s going to be a good thing or a bad thing. Methinks bad. But it shall be interesting.

        Okay then, carry on.

        • Beryl of Oyl August 12, 2022 at 1:17 pm #

          I feel that weight too, MrMango.

          I think some of us are anticipating something like The Shot Heard ‘Round the World.

          When will it come, and what will it be?

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder August 13, 2022 at 9:21 am #

            When will it come, and what will it be?

            My presumption for a while now has been “sooner than we expect”, and “something similar to a Monday Night RAW wrestling gag”.

            We had no warning for 9/11 (well, the majority of the public didn’t, at least). I distinctly remember how much of a surprise it was. People I hadn’t spoken to in years were calling at 10am on a workday.

            We had no warning JFK was to be shot, then Oswald, then Jack Ruby subsequently swept off the Risk board via “illness/natural causes” (well, the majority of the public didn’t, at least).

            And let’s be honest, our grandparents were pretty much waiting for Pearl Harbor, as well as the government, so that one doesn’t count as a shocker (well, in grand retrospect, at least).

            The Civil War was predicted for nearly ten years before the first shot was fired. Yet it came as a surprise (well, to the majority of the public, at least), and that changed the landscape of reality forever for that generation.

            Jarek is correct in pointing out the “pandemic” being a clearly-planned shock to the system, this time essentially worldwide, and the overall cultural effect has been just as great as 9/11 was, if not way more.

            There will be more. They are just holding their cards close, trying to figure out the best way to surprise people again and have a good chuckle. And they’re getting much better at the whole idea.

            You think I’m getting bored?

            These are people who have all the money and perceived power in the world, and turns out that’s fun, but also very boring, as their lives have no real daily purpose, so they spend time planning ways to basically flick the ears of the masses…for entertainment.

            I think you are making it too complicated.

            Have a look at from the perspective that the existing format for life is a flawed game that is played-out and at the point of failure. Then what? How should TPTB solve the problem?

            Dalio writes about different factions vying for power throughout Chinese history during transition periods.

            I am only aware of two dominant factions with a detailed game plan at this point, China and the WEF, and push come to shove, I suspect that the WEF crowd will throw in with Xi.

            Is it realistic to think that another group could cobble together a viable plan to dominate the next cycle?

          • GreenAlba August 13, 2022 at 2:08 pm #

            Well, indeed, Hereward. The odd thing was that in December 2020, when he was hearing about the gene shots being ‘approved’, he said (on the basis of talk on his docs’ blogs mostly I think, ‘I’m not going near it and I think most doctors will be the same’. Then by January he’d totally changed his mind and I asked if his colleagues at work and the docs on his blogs thought it was safe and he said yes, he thought they did.

            I have to admit that was what nudged me into getting it myself – I thought they knew more than me (oh, how I laugh at that one …). Plus a couple of risk factors and the fear that he’d bring it home from work. When I asked him much later (when I knew the score) what changed between December and January, he said he couldn’t ever remember saying he wouldn’t take it.

            What can I say? I don’t want to make one of those generalisations about how men so often seem to say things then deny they ever said them, even when their wife can remember it verbatim, because that wouldn’t be right. 🙂
            But I have to say, entirely anecdotally, that it has happened a lot over the years.

          • GreenAlba August 13, 2022 at 2:09 pm #

            But yes to investment bias. And to the bias that says you can’t, as a doctor, admit to knowing less about something medical than your wife, who is not one. 🙂

      No no landslides. The electorate is a 50 – 50 split.

      If it was a landslide, no need to cheat.

      The adoption of the mail in vote was the kick off of the Democrat manipulation of the ballot box.

    • Wizard of the Saddle August 12, 2022 at 1:35 pm #

      They seem to be laying the groundwork for the next STEAL by having their media whores publish a series of articles and “polls” (haha) that are pushing the narrative that the Dems will increase their majority in the Senate and might hold the House.

    Hello, my name is Janet. I have discovered a wierd trick that can alllow you to make over $4500 per HOUR when working from home. In my first week, I made almost $500,000…my first week! and it is so much fun . If you would like to learn my trick, and earn ooodles of cash, just respond to this opportunity online, or call me at BR=549…

    TREASURY DIRECTS IRS ON AUDITS: In a letter to the IRS, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen directed the IRS not to increase the audit rate of small businesses and households making less than $400,000 annually. Instead, Yellen instructs the IRS to target “high-end noncompliance… [from] large corporations, high-net-work individuals, and complex passthroughs”. Yellen points out that the IRS can make $4,500 per hour by auditing those making over $5 million annually. (AC: The math may support further audits of large earners, however, the IRS has a history of targeting political opposition. While the IRS and Treasury want to go after an estimated $1 trillion in hidden, outstanding tax revenue, the 87,000 new employees over ten years is also likely another federal jobs program and moves the country closer to a federal job guarantee program which, in addition to price controls, is on the table as stagflation takes hold this decade. – M.S.)

    • JohnAZ August 12, 2022 at 11:23 am #

      Hey, you make a great point.

      These 87000 jobs could be work from home jobs.

      Perfect for the Brave New World.

        Thanks for reminding me of this outstanding article by Jeffrey A. Tucker.

        Did Lockdowns Turn Americans Into Lazy Bums?

        “Lockdowns acculturated an entire generation to believe that work is fake, productivity is a ruse, money comes for nothing, the boss is an idiot, and many workers are privileged to be wealthy forever due to papers handed out for $200,000 by colleges and universities. Who needs productivity, much less ambition? ”

        • cowbell81 August 12, 2022 at 12:04 pm #

          I like the following quotes from the above linked article:

          Lockdowns kicked off a national substance-abuse crisis: liquor, drugs, weed, you name it. And depression too. Even today, one cannot help but notice the smell of weed in large cities. This is not the smell of ambition and productivity.

          In the old days, in an ethos formed from bourgeois experience over hundreds of years, the idea of working and doing one’s part was ingrained as a moral habit, part of the liturgy of life itself. When the government told everyone to stop in the name of virus control, something went haywire in people’s brains. If governments say that the work ethic amounts to nothing but pathogenic spread, and we can all contribute more by staying home and doing less, it’s hard to go back. It wrecked a generation. We are paying the price now.

          • Jarek August 12, 2022 at 12:31 pm #

            True, but at the same time, much of what we call “work” is nonsense and would be best not done.

          • Disaffected August 12, 2022 at 2:28 pm #

            Yes. Very true. Working from home has reminded everyone that I know that the actual work involved in their 8-10 hours a day onsite job can usually be done in 4 hours or less at home. Imagine that! Even management seems to be down with it now.

    Say what you will, but at least Trump was the owner of his vacation home getaways and didn’t have to leech off of others.

    Article snippet:

    Joe Biden and the First Family are enjoying a sumptuous summer getaway on a secluded island thanks to a big money Democrat donor who has had the ear of Presidents and VIPs, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.

    The President and disgraced son Hunter are staying for free at a sprawling beachfront estate in Kiawah Island, an exclusive beach resort and gated community on the South Carolina coast.

    The nine-bed retreat is owned by Maria Allwin, 66, the wealthy widow of New York hedge fund mogul James Allwin and a long-time Democratic Party donor.

    Allwin, who has homes in Connecticut and Manhattan, shares Aetos Captial with her son Christopher Allwin – an asset management firm with $11.31 billion under management.

    In a span of just five years, from 2014-18, her family’s foundation donated $1.9 million to charitable causes.

    An administrator at Manhattan’s exclusive Trevor Day School, she has backed a string of prominent Democrats down the years including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Vice President Kamala Harris.

    She’s also attended multiple DNC fundraisers and made three trips to the White House, meeting twice with Obama in 2014 and attending a reception thrown by Biden at the Vice President’s Residence in 2013.

    Indeed one such meeting with Obama on April 4, 2014, was deemed so important that it was arranged just a few hours in advance, according to White House visitor logs.

    The First Family flew into Kiawah Island on Wednesday and were whisked to Allwin’s 10,500 square foot property amid tight security to begin their week-long vacation.

    Secret Service agents were seen patrolling the perimeter on golf carts and guarding the beach immediately behind the sun-drenched private estate which is surrounded by dunes and lush vegetation.

    Two Coast Guards defender-class boats equipped with machine guns were stationed off shore.

    The Bidens have stayed there multiple times since 2009, enjoying the run of the house – which boasts a separate guesthouse as big as a family home and huge saline swimming pool – while Allman lives at her main residence in Connecticut.

    They are paying nothing for their stay, the New York Post reported Thursday, citing a source close to the First Family.

    Allwin’s husband James Allwin died of cancer in 2007 at age 54. He founded the investment management firm Aetos in 1999 and was a long-time board member for Communities in Schools, a stay-in-school program.

    They bought their Kiawah Island pad back in 1991 for $1.2 million and it was briefly listed on the market for $20 million in July – making it the most expensive property for sale in the state of South Carolina at that time.

    ‘This architecturally significant 10,500 square foot home sits on a rare 2.07-acre double oceanfront lot with 200 feet of ocean frontage, located within the Southeast’s most exclusive and desirable resorts, Kiawah Island,’ reads a now-deleted property listing.

    Another excellent article! Thanks, James.

    Again: I wish I could share your faith in what’s left of our legal system. Your research on this seems sound and if it’s all shaking out as you say, it’s quite the clusterfuck. Like Trump or not, if he is battling the deep state then I still wonder how he could possibly have stayed alive this long.

    It might be because he has all of the documents stashed somewhere where the feds can’t get at them, and they can’t do away with someone who knows where it all is and likely has a dead man’s switch.

    In any case, that’s one theory.

    I still don’t trust Trump as he has done too much to prove that he is controlled opposition, and I believe also he keeps the populace believing that the two parties are actually in opposition when they really are not.

    Shit show continues apace!

    • TPTB-USA August 13, 2022 at 10:57 am #

      [… the two parties are actually in opposition when they really are not.]

      Would it be more accurate to describe DC as mainly being comprised of “bad apples”, and a hoard that is just lost in the noise?

      Trump’s limited vocabulary makes me wonder if he has dyslexia and is not well read, and the appearance that he is controlled opposition could be explained by: What percent of the population would agree that, up to this point, Biden and his cohorts are conducting a soft coup?.

    So much to do! In retrieving an article by Jeffrey Tucker, I noticed a reference to a new article by Alex Berenson.

    I was going to bring up Alex anyway, because he has been PROVEN absolutely right; but this needs more immediate attention:

    The White House privately demanded Twitter ban me months before the company did so

    Federal officials targeted me specifically; when they met with Twitter in April 2021, “they really wanted to know about Alex Berenson”

  35. Beryl of Oyl August 12, 2022 at 11:57 am #

    On the topic of people being proven right, this is from Karl Denninger:

    “Rapidly-mutating viruses, such as influenza and coronaviruses, are not measles. They don’t have a stable genome, trying to cut off aerosol transmission is a waste of time which we’ve known it for 40 years since Neil Orr’s original mask study published in 1981, and trying to jab your way out of an active outbreak of a rapidly-mutating virus does not work. At best its futile and when you use untested technology and do not perform the work required to know if its safe you run the risk of screwing millions of people, which we did and we have.

    That damage will not be fully realized for a decade or more.

    There were a few of us who were right.

    Now the CDC has admitted it, so when are you going to shove it up the ass of all those who were wrong and hosed you, your family members, friends and our economy?

    No, I will not “forgive and forget.”

    NEVER.”

      Corona viruses are not rapidly mutating. We used to know that before 2020.
      They are releasing new bioweapons and telling us that they are “variants”.
      From the Russian MoD…

      • Jarek August 12, 2022 at 12:41 pm #

        Yes, they are. So much so that trying to vaccinate against them is a fool’s errand. The bioweapon aspect is something else again, a new and worse horror.

        • Paula D August 12, 2022 at 1:11 pm #

          No, Jarek. Corona viruses were known for not rapidly mutating right up until the fear porn on SARS 2 started.
          Saying they rapidly mutate is adopting a new definition, just like “pandemic” and “vaccine” and “natural immunity” and “recession” and “woman”.

          • Jarek August 12, 2022 at 1:15 pm #

            So if relatively stable, why not vaccinate against them like they did the flu?

          • Paula D August 12, 2022 at 1:17 pm #

            Because they never came up with a safe and effective vaccine against corona. Every time they tested one the target animals died.
            And by the way, the flu vaccine is usually ineffective. Most of the time they pick the wrong strain.
            I usually to check the CDC every year to see what the last year’s vaccine had done. (Because they were pushing it at work and I didn’t want it).
            They invariably reported that last year’s was not effective, but be sure to take this year’s! For sure this year’s will work.

          • Jarek August 12, 2022 at 1:40 pm #

            I’ve heard that. But why? If the coronavirus vaccines they tested didn’t fight yesterdays variant, why were they so harmful? Did they damage the immune system even before the mRNA madness?

            Many reported getting the flu only after taking the flu vaccine. Perhaps the dead and dying cells they used weren’t always so dead and dying.

          • Paula D August 12, 2022 at 1:54 pm #

            Because they caused antibody-dependent enhancement.
            They never overcame that problem.

      • Paula D August 12, 2022 at 1:09 pm #

        Dammit. I accidentally hit post while looking for the quote and then my computer froze.
        “”According to our experts, this is evidenced by the uncharacteristic variability of the genovariants that cause different peaks in the incidence of coronaviruses, significant differences in lethality and contagiousness, uneven geographical distribution, and the unpredictable nature of the epidemic process as a whole. It appears that despite efforts to contain and isolate the disease, the pandemic is being artificially fueled by the introduction of new variants of the virus in a particular region.”

        • Paula D August 12, 2022 at 1:15 pm #

          It’s like monkeypox only showing up in countries without monkeys.

          Only total idiots would believe the story they tell us about that.

          Well, it’s the same with different “variants” suddenly showing up in certain countries, all over the place, while completely skipping other countries.
          Or believing that a new “variant” can be identified in South Africa on a Thursday, named on a Friday and “discovered” all over the USA the next week.
          That is not how viruses naturally spread.
          Remember Lambada? That was one from Brazil they were “watching”.
          But that never made it out of Brazil. Why? How can a “variant” from South Africa make it all over the USA in one week, but the one from Brazil never showed up here?
          My personal opinion is that they were watching us, not the “variant”, and the name didn’t play in Peoria so they dropped it.

          • Beryl of Oyl August 12, 2022 at 1:19 pm #

            I thought Lambada was a dance craze.

          • Paula D August 12, 2022 at 1:49 pm #

            Yeah, Beryl, the memes on Lambada were just too good, so they dropped it like the Twist.
            They don’t like the ridicule.
            But people did point out that omicron was an anagram of
            moronic. That might have been purposeful though. Them ridiculing us instead of vice versa.

            Turns out it was Bill Gates, reaching out to make sure I updated to Windows 11 by f*cking with my computer.
            That man has way too much power.

    Alex Berenson has gotten around to reviewing Dr. Deborah Birx’s book.

    It is truly sickening? Remember trying to force nurse’s to get the damn flu shots? Remember how the shots, which were recommended for the elderly and infirm previously, were suddenly necessary for everyone, and we started hearing very dubious claims about herd immunity?

    Remember NYC forcing flu shots on schoolchildren? Remember nurses who refused the shots being forced to work in masks for their entire shifts?

    This from Alex’s article:

    But Birx’s testing obsession is not the most disturbing part of Silent Invasion.

    No, that moment comes near the end, on page 409, in what is basically an aside as Birx discusses the Covid vaccine rollout. She writes:

    Historically, flu vaccination rates in America have been nowhere near high enough for the population to develop herd immunity [emphasis added]…

    The CDC should have worked to understand vaccine hesitancy and, more important, how that hesitancy could be overcome. If we had increased annual flu vaccinations over time, we could have been very near or have exceeded the number of people needed to achieve vaccine-based immunity [emphasis added].

    (I didn’t make this up. I couldn’t make this up.)

    How do I put this politely?

    If Deborah Birx believes the United States could reach “vaccine-based immunity” to influenza by increasing the number of flu shots it administers, she lacks even the most basic understanding of epidemiology.

    The DOJ and the FBI are both fatally compromised and corrupt to the core. Both have too many Deep State operatives loyal to the Communist Woke DNC.

    Reform and oversight will not work and have proven to be a big, fat, joke.

    Just as the INS was dissolved after the 911 fiasco, so too much the FBI and DOJ be dissolved after this fiasco.

    The United States got along just fine as a Republic for many years without either of these two 3 letter organizations. The DOJ did not even exist until 1870 and was the corrupt creation of the victorious Union faction from the Civil War. It was a tool of the Radical Reconstructionists then, and it is a tool of the Woke Consitutional Deconstructionists now.

    Likewise, the FBI did not exist until 1922 and was corrupt from the get-go under J. Edgar Hoover who immediately began using it to collect dossiers on elected officials for the purposes of blackmail – Gestapo style.

    Forget all the Ephram Zimbalist, Jr. “The FBI” TV propaganda from the 1960’s. The FBI’s creation represented a MASSIVE increase in federal power. It should be abolished. Let the federal Marshall’s service handle federal law enforcement matters like they have done since 1789. They can pick up some of the bureaus interstate law enforcement responsibilities. Otherwise, 99% of all law enforcement in this country needs to remain at the STATE and LOCAL levels to prevent federal tyranny.

    One more thing: An immediate halt needs to happen regarding this business of every 3-letter agency in the federal bureaucracy “arming up” with all sorts of weapons, ammo, tactical gear, SWAT teams, etc. What the Dems are trying to do is to build a domestic, paramilitary, army of armed federal agents that will answer to the Democrats. Sort of like Hitler built up the SS as an armed domestic paramilitary force loyal solely to Hitler and his Nazi Party. History teaches us the danger of “standing armies” and especially of domestic political party armies. All of this breed TYRANNY. Enough is enough. The next GOP Congress needs to move fast and hard to defund all of this.

    • Woodchuck August 12, 2022 at 5:00 pm #

      That’s very well written there Wizard. One thing on all these types of forums is sooner or later Germany’s famous period of ’33 to ’45 is brought into the discussion.

      The SS was first considered to be a joke, and Heinrich Himmler a harmless “hang around”. Like the label “hang around” placed on wannabe bass ass bikers who socialize with outlaw motorcycle gangs. Himmler’s weird little SS organization suddenly became very important to Hitler when a second private army was needed to liquidate his first private army – the Brownshirts. It seems that Captain Rohm was getting rebellious and that Hitler and Rohm had a falling out. Captain Rohm and his staff were gay, and Hitler chose to make a gay scandal out of it as a way of justifying taking the organization down. The SS provided the muscle to arrest and kill any Brownshirt opposition. From that point on, the SS rapidly gained power in Germany, and they were just as much a cult as they were a fighting organization.

      The SS had a special castle for themselves called “Wewelsburg” and Himmler thought of the SS as the reconstruction of the old Teutonic Knights. He was fascinated by occult/crackpot theories of the time, and wanted to replace the Christian cross with the Nazi swastika. He was fascinated by old Medieval tales and had a group out searching for the Holy Grail. The Spear of Destiny also fascinated Himmler. Just as Rome injected pagan beliefs into Chrisitianity to make it easier to convert pagans, Himmler wanted to inject a bunch of demonic crapola into Christianity and therefore finish it off. It seems the SS plan was to first destroy Judaism and next take down the Church.

      • Night Owl August 12, 2022 at 6:47 pm #

        The SS was never considered a joke.

        The SA was, however. The SS culled the SA, and at that point, most civilians were shitting their pants.

      • Amman August 13, 2022 at 5:45 am #

        You sound very interested in this time. How do you find David Irving and his Novel on Himmler?

        • SpeedyBB August 13, 2022 at 10:20 am #

          I’m likely one of the last standing David Irving fans, as I found his bios of criminals like Göbbels vivid, credible and realistic. I never knew of the novel on Himmler; have to check that one out.

          The free .pdf downloads of the bios, available on his website, are riddled with misspellings and odd grammatical errors. I thus volunteered to proofread and clean up the text (including clinkers like full paragraphs repeated on facing pages). He put up with my corrections, actually informing me that many of the errors could be attributed to the fact the books were scanned in India in the 1980s (!), up to a point anyway. Then in classic Irving fashion he got tired of my interference and told me to piss off.

          So off I pissed.

          But I still admire the guy and his work. He’s a fighter and a smarty.

          I don’t care about his views on the Holocaust. Or his taste in automobile colors. He’s a great historian and a fine, if somewhat clumsy and error-prone, author.

          • Amman August 13, 2022 at 12:02 pm #

            I understand his best books are the bios on Winston Churchill and Adolf Hitler. Plus the 50’s classic on what the Americans and British did to Dresden.

            Personally, he reminds me of a middle school Principal.

          • Jarek August 13, 2022 at 12:23 pm #

            Yes, he had to be destroyed because he criticized Shoah Business.

        • Woodchuck August 13, 2022 at 2:56 pm #

          About all I know about Irving is he was notorious as a holocaust denier. From that point on I didn’t care to know much more about him. However now I see people claiming that he was very skilled in rooting around in historical archives and making some interesting finds. The SS had a sort of “occult bureau” called the Anenerhbe or something such. If you google “Nazis and the Occult” you’ll get over into to the wild and controversial side of history. This bureau left a big pile of documents hidden in a cave in Germany. I wonder if Irving ever got his hands on those. Legit historians can get access to those old docs.

          As a child, Himmler was known as a sulky spoilsport and tattle tale. His father was typical as a figure of the hated pedantic schoolmaster type. The sort of person Mark Twain mocked in his novels.

      • Jarek August 13, 2022 at 12:22 pm #

        The Night of the Long Knives. Was there ever such a night?

        Yes, Hitler didn’t like Christianity. Many can’t accept that and he hid it on the popular level, but it is true. His criticisms of it are not without merit of course, but I can see both sides.

    • Not_GeorgeT August 13, 2022 at 12:43 pm #

      If they follow the Constitution, Article I Section 8 allows for raising an army, with the funding limited to two years. Seems reason enough, since these agencies are now armies, to just defund them.

      My take is they (Founders) had a justifiable fear of standing armies.

      They did authorize a navy and post offices and post roads under the same Article and Section without such a time limit.

      Clearly it was a standing army they feared, not a navy and not post offices and post roads.

      I agree, but the 2-party system is what it is: Entrenched. My personal feeling is that neither can be dismantled, but each is capable of suddenly collapse.

      My fervent hope is that the Democrats will suddenly collapse when the Woke hysteria finally runs its course and 75% of the country turns on the Dems.

      In the meantime, MAGA efforts to wrest control of the GOP from the treasonous RINOS is a worthy activity to participate in.

      It is also worthy to continue to register one’s manifest disapproval of the the Democrats by voting – even if the elections are rigged and dishonest. To stay home and do nothing is at all simply yields the playing field entirely to the bad guys.

      Russian people were powerless to stop the Soviet machine in the 70’s and 80’s too, but the Soviet Union still collapsed on its own anyway. Stubborn political resistance by the masses is the slow way around the block, but it almost always wins in the end.

    Well, ladies and germs;

    Canada, O Canada….

    In Canada, where the politically correct Trudeau regime clearly craves recognition as a humanitarian superpower, the government has followed in the footsteps of Germany and several other European states by enshrining the official narrative in the Criminal Code, s. 319. Henceforth

    (2.1) Everyone who, by communicating statements, other than in private conversation, wilfully promotes antisemitism by condoning, denying or downplaying the Holocaust

    (a) is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years; or
    (b) is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction.

    I, personally, think this is a good thing. For years, those bastards have been coming down from their frozen climes to insult our men and steal our women…and spread vicious lies, too.l

    I actually SAW one of those bastards writing an article about the Holocaust without capitalizing the word “holocaust”. They should all die….

      In all fairness, EF, we do not “steal” your women. They naturally flock to us. It’s purely biological.

      —–

      Thank you for posting this new Canadian law. I was unaware of it but am not surprised.

      Historically, I had argued that there is no way that it was “bang[on” EXACTLY 6,000,000 Jews exterminated in the Holocaust and that, therefore, it be reasonable that people might speculate that the TRUE EXACT number be Over or Under 6,000,000.

      Although I clearly do not know the answer, I must admit that I was sort of leaning towards “taking the Under” back when I was free to think and speak however I so choose (like a free man).

      Now that it is Thought Crime in my country to “take the Under,” however, I refuse to wager.

    From Josef Bosch on Gab

    Politically, best case scenario, some people who don’t hate our people as much as the other option ostensibly gain control of the government.
    For funsies, let’s say it’s a clean sweep… majority of governorships, House, Senate, Presidency.
    Demographically, nothing’s changed… your children are now an absolutely minority in the nation, the bureaucracy is intact, higher education carries on as-is, the press operates as it always has, status quo is preserved at every financial institution, zero turnover among military leadership, and the culture’s tastemakers continue to chip away at every value you hold dear.
    So, what’s REALLY been achieved here? What does TOTAL POLITICAL VICTORY change in the short term OR the long term?
    Nothing.
    Your country is gone… your people are all that you have now.
    Admitting as much is the first step to a new life.
    Gather as many good White people around you as humanly possible and begin building and sacrificing and struggling and insulating and preserving and hoping and loving and laughing and singing and writing and dreaming and exploring and fighting and growing and and and…
    You and I are pioneers now… we’re going to have to carve out a place for our people in this most-hostile-of-all-environments.
    And we can’t do that while reminiscing about the places we left behind, about how it could’ve been, how it should’ve been, about what was lost.
    We have to keep our eyes on the future now.

      That was Marjorie Post’s estate.

      Once the world’s wealthiest woman, she has an interesting history. Amongst other things she was married to the first US Ambassador to the Soviet Union and lived in Moscow during the darkest days of the Great Terror and Stalins Show Trials. At the time the Soviet Union was desperate for cash and was looting ancient churches and royal museums thru out Russis for valuable relics, precipitous metals and rare works of art — which Marjotie Post bought for pennies on the dollar. In effect she happily took advantage of the Bolsheviks looting of Mother Russia.

          No the Bolsheviks looted Russian & E European Churches & Museums, even private collections. Much of it ended up in museums in DC & NYC.

          Some of it has been returned to Russia in recent years.

    Last week one of the men here had a high speed comeapart when faced with logic.
    Yep, a man, even though men are ruled by logic and women by emotion, (so sayeth the men), went ballistic with rage and vitriol.
    .Anyway, I gave my perspective as a medical control certified trauma nurse, saying that the emergency response was suspect and the Official Story clearly bogus.
    And I remembered that I had seen a school safety expert who gave his perspective also.
    So I ran across this video of that man. Anyone who prides themself on their logic should watch the video and see if they can pick holes in his case.

        My computer froze again when I was 30 minutes in, so I posted the link and did other stuff.
        Now I’m watching more and he says that he doesn’t think any child died. I actually think they did kill some kids.
        That is because I don’t think that our government draws the line at killing kids.
        Anyway, the first 30 minutes are where he asks questions like:
        How does one shooter kill 26 people so dead that no one transports them to a trauma center?
        Who made that decision?
        Why were the parents not allowed to see the bodies?
        Why didn’t the parents insist on seeing the bodies?
        Why did no ambulances respond to the scene?
        Etc.

        • SW August 12, 2022 at 5:21 pm #

          When that happened I think everyone was so shocked that details like this were easy to miss. I hope it was a hoax (I have no idea either way) so no kid died but why would parents say their child was dead? It makes no sense.

        Mary,
        Funny story.

        A guy I knew had a wife who, for some reason, began giving nude massages to their neighbors. He objected…it became an issue. On night, she hit him with a lamp, he hit her with a hammer in defense.

        She had him arrested. Threw all of his belongings into an open boat they had on a trailer in the yard…during the winter. While he was incarcerated, she took his dog to the vet and had it put down.

        He eventually was convicted and served a year in the state pen.

        Mary, if not rage, what the fuck do you call it?

        • MaryQueen August 12, 2022 at 11:21 pm #

      • GreenAlba August 12, 2022 at 9:00 pm #

        “Going ballistic with rage and vitriol is a very male thing.”

        Indeed. In many jurisdictions tolerance (not to say admiration, in some cases) of such behaviour was, until relatively recently, enshrined in law, with men being able to plead a ‘crime of passion’ to get away with murder, a benefit that was generally not extended to women.

        • Rhett Dawson August 12, 2022 at 9:29 pm #

          But was it not extended to women on account of unfair application of the law or, rather, because it rarely applied?

          Men “lose their nut” and act violently WAY more than do women.

            “But was it not extended to women on account of unfair application of the law or, rather, because it rarely applied?”

            It was literally enshrined in law in certain countries (e.g. France, because it was men who made the laws (but it was, of course, also men who applied them – indeed, there are men on this very board who wish this situation to be reinstated). Just like men used to be able to put their wives in a lunatic asylum if they spoke out of turn (definition of ‘out of turn’ obviously decided by men).

            Nobody thinks like that now, except in particularly macho societies where honour killings and such are still thought to be excusable, even if not now protected by law, and enjoy high levels of societal support.

            This is not meant to be a denial that there are also ways in which the modern justice system may benefit women (e.g. fewer custodial sentences), but knowing that your husband can kill you and get away with it, or just get a couple of years for manslaughter, is not a comforting situation to be in.

            Rhett,
            Really? Funny story I heard recently:

            A guy meets his buddy in a bar. He looks like he slept in his clothes, and he had a big welt on the side of his face. His buddy asks why he is in that condition;

            “Well, my wife attacked me and threw me out of the house without any reason”

            “What”? His buddy said…”why did she attack you”

            He replys “No reason at all…she attacked me out of the blue when I walked in the door…she just went crazy”

            His buddy suggested that there must have been SOME reason for the assault.

            No reason…she just went nuts!

            :Gotta be a reason…think about it” his buddy pressed.

            The victim then said…”No reason at all…she found out I was screwing her sister, and she just went nuts:!

        • Hereward the Woke August 14, 2022 at 6:59 am #

          Not quite true, GA. Many French women got away with the “crime of passion” excuse too. It’s a French thing. A great example is the Mme Cailloux murder case in 1914. The lady in question was married to an important member of government. The editor of Le Figaro newspaper threatened to publish letters related to Mr C’s extra-marital affairs. Mme C shot him dead and was acquitted for a “crime passionel”. Whatever the rights or wrongs of the case, there was actually quite a lot of sympathy at the time for women who committed such crimes after being wronged by unpleasant men.

          • GreenAlba August 14, 2022 at 2:56 pm #

            I stand corrected, Hereward. But I think that in Latin American cultures, where crimes of passion are also a thing, they status quo favours men. And in some Asian cultures, honour killings are pretty much the same thing (in both Latin American and Asian cultures the murders can extend to daughters and sisters).

      Many women can be logical. But they will only be so when it serves them. Without even thinking about it, they will turn logic off when it goes against their wishes or needs.

      Men do this too – but not so often or easily as women do. That is the difference.

      Example: Your rejection of Solzhenitsyn for his criticism of your beloved Russian Communism. Do you struggle with this? Of course not! You just rejected him out of hand. Turned off your higher functioning.

    One might think that…

    Any organization that purports to serve ‘Law’ should actually… SERVE LAW. It should not serve as just another thug arm of the Lawless Predator State.

    A true arm of ‘Law Enforcement’ only can draw legitimacy and their very right to exist as such from the Social Contract of Government having a valid mutually beneficial relationship with We the People from which all arms of government are purported to draw their right to exist from.

    An arm of Law Enforcement has no legitimacy if it is born and totally in service of lawless thuggery and submission to Predatory Elitists and all those who have no loyal to the Nation.

    And when any social institution does not draw its authority from… legitimacy… it is totally at its heart void of any lawful and moral authority.

    And additional layers (and ‘laws in service of’) thuggery are necessary to carry out the lawless dictates of such ‘Law Enforcers’.

    BUT…

    These are existent only when there is a common acceptance of We the People being sane and rational and at least in theory working toward some kind of common good.

    Today, one might conclude that…

    People no longer seek the social foundations of sanity and rationality and a real and true social contract with government.

    Instead, People want delusion… self-gratification… the right to every form of insanity and breakage and cancellation of social norms and social arrangements that have served the human family for thousands of years.

    So… we have half of America trying to hold on to what remains of a life-preserver of sanity and a desire for a true social contact based on honesty and mutual benefit, and…

    Half of America is Living in a Fantasy (thanks, Leo Sayer).

    Trump and Biden and all those pols who stand behind them lined up neatly in two rows are but the obvious scabs over a gaping wound that now describes the Body of America. A deeply sick Nation that no long seeks health and unity but vengeance and getting even.

    You might try to treat a skin wound to make it look better. But it’s tougher when the sickness is deep within the body. So, let’s watch everyone argue over who has the better looking skin wound while we ignore the deep illness within.

    • Woodchuck August 12, 2022 at 5:59 pm #

      A deep illness within?

      We’re only ill because we can afford to be ill. Once the resources to experience self inflicted misery through fossil fuel living are unavailable, we’ll recover our health. Instead of watching tv and spending time online arguing, we’ll be engaged in activity like servicing chainsaws and checking out our wood splitting gear. Others will be engaged in back yard gardening cores along with preserving food at home. When the car culture implodes it will take down many other activities like shopping in giant grocery stores. The practice of making clothing at home will begin once again and move back into the position it had in the 50’s. You either figure out how to use patterns and a sewing machine or you root around in used clothing stores for stained stuff in poor condition. Want the best and the new? Make it yourself or fuggedaboutit. The only self gratifiction available will be that of having the skills to make something with your hands that you formerly depended on a poorly paid Asian worker to do for you. Self sufficiency in the future will feel much better than self gratification.

        what you describe has given this culture the leisure and restlessness to believe stupid things, things that divide us. we search for solutions for the sense of malaise that infects many of us. divisory beliefs like feminism, that lead to silly contention between individuals withing the most necessary and fundamental complementary pairing in creation.

        yesterday, i brought my son to his weekly flying lesson. the cfi is a real gem of a human, and is giving my son those lessons in exchange 2 for 1, hours of work.

        as we were wrapping up, bill (lets call him) was doing what he could to interest my son in an exercise for damaged but savable local kids, building a large and complex model airplane. my son is not the type to jump up and down withe enthusiasm, and finding time is going to be a challenge.

        on the way home, we talked about how in days longer past, it was natural for elders to mentor the youth – bill is trying to get my son to see and learn that the responsibility starts as an early habit.

        lately, the recent retiree attitude looks more like “we are going to live it up and bounce the check to the undertaker”. no wonder this country is on the skids.

        woodchuck, i will enjoy every time you make and expand upon this point. i would only add – teach the kids at the same time.

        peace, and thanks.

        ps to add, one of the watchwords between my bride and i, with respect to raising our beloved children, is when i say “quit following him around with a diaper”…

        she has a tough time seeing when its time to choose between nurturing, and letting him become a man.

        a few weeks ago, we found out he had been doing some stupid, risky crap with some people his age that are stomping that old path down.

        it’s in many kid’s natures, but especially boys, to take risks and challenge them selves. last week, it was 90 and 100% humidity, but time for him to ride his bike to work – she (in concern, of course) piped up “this seems like heatstroke weather”.

        we had just finished cleaning the gutters, good job for a hot day, but hearing her say that, i had to say “here we go again”.

        next thing out of my mouth was “bud, i’ll ride up with you”. and we did. i pushed myself to keep up with him, but we both got a good experience. and had some very sweaty fun.

        again between she and i later – to the effect – “if you fear every time he has the urge to take a risk and prevent it, he will take stupid risks behind our backs, like 3 weeks ago”

        i complement any man (and his mom) well raised by a single mother, because about 85% of the men in jail had no father in their home.

    “We will have systematic population reduction, forced sterilization, or anything else which the planners deem necessary to establish absolute control in their humanitarian utopia. But to enforce these plans you must have an all-powerful world government. You can’t do this if individual nations have sovereignty. And before you can facilitate the

    Great merger

    you must first centralize control within each nation, destroy the local police and remove the guns from the hands of the citizenry. You must replace our once free Constitutional Republic with an all powerful government.”

      I’ve thought from the very beginning of the Defund the Police slogan that the logic behind it (and mindlessly parroted by BLM a& Antifa) was to abolish local police, let the crime wave crest & then use it as an excuse for an “emergency measure” to install a national police force.

      I don’t own a gun, have never shot a gun & never will but I’ve done a complete 180 on gun ownership. People can keep their guns but no one under 21 can buy one.

    • Soul Forensics August 12, 2022 at 5:17 pm #

      Have to disagree BRH. I know you’re using “tragedy” in its common, desecrated sense, but the contemporary term too often gets conflated with its original, powerful meaning: a fall (and spiritual regeneration) after a great height. Heche was never great, and she certainly never ascended in any notable way.

      • MaryQueen August 12, 2022 at 5:25 pm #

        Agree. She relied more on trying to get attention off-screen and her abilities were not stellar. Plus she was an embarrassing drunk, and that did her no favors. I just saw a video of her ‘out on the town’ and it was cringeworthy. Completely drunk out of her mind, trying to sign autographs for fans.

      • BackRowHeckler August 12, 2022 at 7:12 pm #

        I like Mob Films and think she did a pretty good job in Donny Brasco.

        Granted she wasn’t a great actress, but she did have a career. Hollywood history is one of my subjects, and quite a few actresses ended up similar to Ann Heche, going back to when the film industry started in Hollywood in 1916. Others, like Mae West & Heddy Lamar, were very successful.

        • MaryQueen August 12, 2022 at 7:57 pm #

          I will admit to being less than objective when it comes to people who drive wasted out of their minds.

          One killed my cousin, it was devastating. Also happened in Los Angeles. The woman (who tried to flee the scene but was trapped by good samaritans) got only 4 years. These people then come out of prison and do it again.

          Privileged people (like Paul Pelosi and Anne Heche, etc.) rarely see jail time, they just go to fancy detox, then start the whole cycle over again a few months later.

          Successful actors need a stable personality since Hollywood amplifies personality problems. And most actors are narcissistic by nature.

          Peter Sellers said he didn’t have a core of identity. He couldn’t differentiate between himself and the characters he played.

          • MaryQueen August 12, 2022 at 11:26 pm #

            That is very sad to me, as having identity crisis is really a horrible way to go through life.

        she also slept around, reportedly a lot, with many men. but, gotta have it all. probably nuked her ability to pair bond.

        it kills me that some feminists adopt a persona such that a gazing in the mirror, they do so much to see themselves and become the fantasy that attracts them. lots of mannish characteristics.

    The existence of a rogue intelligence community within the top echelons of the United States government is nothing new. It started with J. Edgar Hover when Truman was president, although the roots go back into FDR’s time.

    Compartmentalization within the FBI and CIA communities makes any attempt at tracking projects and responsibilities very difficult if not impossible. Even the directors of the intel agencies do not know and cannot know all of the various cells within those agencies. Probably the most responsible and trackable intel groups are those within the military.,

    Eisenhower warned us about the “Military/Industrial Complex”. Today the interwoven entanglements of the Congress and the MIC are pretty much beyond any attempts by the citizens to hold those government agencies and the private sector lobbyists and bribers who steer and control our federal government.

    A total house-cleaning is way overdue in our federal government.

    • Paula D August 12, 2022 at 9:41 pm #

      J. Edgar Hoover started during WW1 when the government was persecuting and prosecuting citizens who spoke out against the war.
      He had a 50 year “career” prosecuting dissidents, while denying that there was any such thing as a Mafia.

    A perfect example of a deep state operative is the character Colonel Baker, from the last episode of Miami Vice “Freefall”. Col. Baker is tasked with manipulating western hemisphere interests on behalf of one of the ‘dozen intel agencies’:

    Crockett: “Is it about protecting dictators, and letting drug dealers go free? Is that it?”

    Col. Baker: “Take a look at the map, Crockett. Real estate is turning red all over this hemisphere. Your brand of law and order went out with Wyatt Earp. There is only two things that count– American interests, and anything that’s counter to them…”

    Tubbs: “You are what is counter to them, Baker. You and all those slick, deal making lawyers.”

    Col. Baker: “I don’t make policy, I enforce it.”

    Crockett: “…and cover it up when it goes wrong.”

    Col. Baker: “That’s right. And I’ve got carte blanche, baby. I could shoot you, right now. Easy….”

        The UK recently passed a law permitting members of the intelligence agencies and others to commit crimes with impunity in the pursuance of their duties, up to and including murder, as far as I am aware. I think it includes police and military. So it won’t even be covert. It covers other agents of the state too – can’t remember which. Iain Davis covers it well, both on his own site (In-this-together) and on UKC. We’ve already had the Police, Crimes, Courts and Sentencing Bill, which almost outlaws protest, and are just waiting for the Online Safety [Censorship] Bill, which has been put back till autumn. Then we’re into the sunlit uplands of total dictatorship. Fun times coming, with more jabs.

        I think I am going to predict that they will eventually be quite open about the purpose of the various mRNA jabs too, while forcing people to take them. Once they have total digital control. Could be wrong, obviously – it might stay more Logan’s Run.

          This from a Mexican citizen (sorry I don’t have a link, it’s from telegram):

          “Well, let me tell you that in Mexico that the narcos and the government ARE THE SAME. These bastards have a political and social endgame. It is the usual recipe: first they provoke fear and then they come to provide the “solution”, which in this case of the drug war will end up being the militarization of the country with the National Guard. That has been one of the objectives of the last 4 decades that the puppet governments have had to fulfill, and it seems that the puppet government in turn, MORENA, is going to achieve it, if not in this six-year term, then in the next with Ebrard. And of course a number of new social control measures with the excuse of security, such as biometric digital identity.

          In each six-year term, the federal government is backed by one or another cartel… This six-year term, the privileged cartel due to its links with the puppet imposed by the financial elites (AMLO) is the Sinaloa cartel.

          But in the end, the entire drug and arms business worldwide belongs to vulture funds like BlackRock and Vanguard. “

    Interesting that the search warrant was issued pursuant to offences under the Espionage Act.
    This ancient piece of legislation, from the WWI era, has rarely been used.
    The only occasion in modern times that it has be used is against Assange.
    Nice symmetry for those who recall the Orange Ogre bellowing during the2016 campaign “I LOVE WIKILEAKS” and urging them to release Killary’s 33,000 emails.

        Trump said he was going to release a stack of classified documents a foot high before he left office.

  67. BackRowHeckler August 13, 2022 at 5:43 am #

    To pick up an earlier thread …

    For an example of an actor whose personal life wasn’t much different from the roles he played in film and TV, look up Lawrence Tierney. A tough street guy on screen, a tough street guy on the streets of NYC & LA. Spent quite a bit of time in various lockups. Quentin Tarantino cast Tierney in ‘Resevoir Dogs’, perhaps to lend to the movie a patina of authenticity — Tierney (by this time an old man) was too real for even Tarantino.

    Another was actor James Caan, who was linked to the Genovese Crime Family and was a close associate of Mob Kingpin Mush Russo.

    • BackRowHeckler August 13, 2022 at 7:29 am #

      Correction: Mush Russo was a honcho in the Bonnano Crime Family, not Genovese. He was an interesting character. Mush lived in a mansion in Oyster Bay near the Roosevelt Estates; he made his fortune in Carting, that is, trash collection on Long Island. One time, out on his motoryacht on LI Sound with his grandchildren, he rescued people whose boat had sunk. The Feds kept arresting Mush and he’d do stretches in Federal Prison. When asked by a reporter “Mush, you’re an old man, you have all the money you’ll ever need, why not just retire? Why continue in mob life?”

      Mush answered, “I’m a Gangster, I’ve been a Gangster my whole life; it’s all I know.”

      • stelmosfire August 13, 2022 at 8:17 am #

        Nothing wrong with being a true gangster. Not like the gangsters glorified in the MSM today (rappers, illegals,ballers, fentynal dealers, ) Old schooler paisons lived by the code “No innocents hurt”. I wish the politicians running this country had such a code.

          Any time I have had peripheral dealings with Mafia or Mafia types, I’ve always found them to be fair and honest. Historically, the businesses they’ve been involved in were gambling, booze (when it was illegal), and prostitution–and also doubtless drugs. When you’re engaged in something illegal, enforcement of contractual agreements is necessarily extra-legal. Dishonesty is a particularly poor business practice when your customers can’t file a civil suit against you or report you to the Better Business Bureau.

        • Jarek August 13, 2022 at 1:00 pm #

          Yes, there’s some truth there. Hell’s Angels are said to have the same code. And Whitey Bulger protected South Boston from many bad elements.

          Great Kings go beyond the Criminal Code, but many did not even live up to it. Obama certainly did not and does not.

    What pisses me off is that the majority of this country actually believes that Trump should eventually end up behind bars. I mean, he was a president, and by definition and history every single one of them is basically a war criminal that gets a pass…but, he’s actually done far less harm than most. He’s just a dickhead when he expresses himself…okay.

    Why is GW sitting on his TX porch with no worries in the world?

    Why does Wild Bill still go into an office in NY (for some reason?) with no worries in the world?

    Why does Barry Soetero get to ride off into the sunset with 30 million pages of documents from his time in office with no worries in the world?

    Hell, why is Jimmy Carter viewed as a saint? (many would be surprised at the crimes he’s been privately accused of )

    All these people did horrible things…sometimes because they had to, sometimes because their dad had a beef with Saddam Hussein and their VP was an evil deep state overlord tool (“ahem, paging Dr. Cheney”).

    Yet they’re floating “espionage” accusations at Trump for having some papers from HIS office when he was president. If they were in a library, they’d be just dandy to exist. Yet he’ll never get a library…which is fine, because he’s probably never read a book in his life…nor did he write anything of note beyond some amusing tweets. But I tell ya, neither has really any other president going back 50 years. Hell, I’d venture say there are only a dozen or so in our entire history that were truly worthy of the position.

    And I have friends and family that actually think this crap all has merit. Not only that, they trust that whatever the FBI says they have…is true. Like they couldn’t just slip a few memos into that box and claim espionage, or high treason. It hurts my brain.

      And what makes you think it’s a majority that wants Trump behind bars? From everything I see it is the exact opposite. It’s a very small minority that is actually orchestrating all of this.

I guess I’m just taking my limited sample set and extrapolating that out to the general world. Perhaps I’m wrong. But five minutes on Twitter would suggest I’m not entirely wrong.

      It is nearly as bad here in Europe, only the names change. In Germany, anything that is anti-establishment (the establishment being the German Uniparty of the FDP, Greens, CDU, and SDP) are lambasted as Nazis, right-wing extremists, etc. The Bundesnachrichtendienst is the equivalent of the criminal FBI. Political opposition at every level is monitored and, if they have any power and speak out, raided by federal agents.

      The recipe is the same around the world, and it things have come to a head at the same time nearly everywhere because we are all run by a global criminal mafia.

      As sad as the situation is, the amount of truth that has come to light over the past 6-7 years is something for which we should be thankful.

    Donald Trump is the biggest enemy the fifty year Liberal globalist takeover campaign in the US has had to face in its bid for power.

    Period!

    He must be destroyed and the campaign to do so has entered another phase with the raid. The electorate has blown off the Jan. 6 investigation per the polls. The Deep State is in a panic. It’s primary spokesperson re the Investigation, is going to be primaried big time on Tuesday. Good riddance to a relic from the Bush dynasty GOP.

    The Deep State is really getting pissed. They have tried every lie, every dirty political trick in the book to put down Trump in the eyes of the Deplorables. It has not worked. Now they are crossing the lines in desperation. Will they turn Trump into a martyr?

    BTW, Trump is winning by default. He left behind a fairly stable US when he left office. The Dem mob has made a shambles of the US since 2021. Trump and his minions have reversed the strategy, they are allowing the Dem Deep State show how inept its program is.

      For some of them, the “not my president” thing started with Reagan. But it went into even higher gear with George W Bush. And of course went nuclear with Trump. But W is still around – and he loves the Obamas and hates Trump. So what does that say about their belief system?

      Not that the “conservatives” have anything to boast about either. Same dissonance. Same unwillingness to engage with it.

      Capitalism and Communism are one system, both hostile to nationalism. To the extent Trump is for America and making it great again, to that same extent “both sides” are against him.

      Yep. As Mr. Bannon often says the globalists and terrorist leftists use the legal system to take out their opponents simply by attempting to bankrupt them through legal fees etc. “The process is the punishment”.

    This may not be a spiritual blog but this Scripture describes perfectly what is going on?

    “The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the working of Satan, with every kind of power, sign, and false wonder, and with every wicked deception directed against those who are perishing, because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them. For this reason God will send them a powerful delusion so that they believe the lie, in order that judgment may come upon all who have disbelieved the truth and delighted in wickedness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

      There’s a lot of controversy over who actually wrote 2 Thessalonians. A lot of top tier Bible scholars have noted that the 2nd Thess is much different in tone and style from first Thess. Of the 13 books attributed to Paul, I think only 7 of them can we be sure about.

    Tucker did an interview with an 18 yr old, White, heterosexual college student with a German name. Truly amazing.

    Student: I mentioned that all the major porn websites are owned by the same company, MindGeek. It’s a secretive company that you don’t hear much about, despite being so powerful.

    Tucker: Someone is probably making billions of dollars from destroying the country. What’s his name?

      Bernd Bergmair otherwise known as Bernard Bergemar, an Austrian businessman is a majority owner of MindGeek. Feras Antoon, David Marmorstein, and Leonardo DaSilva are minority owners. It’s a Canadian company.

      In the 70s & 80s most of the porn on the east coast was manufactured and controlled by the Roy DeMaio and John Gotti crews in the Gambino Crime family. It was a big moneymaker, which got kicked upstairs to Big Paul Castellano, the boss. Bada bing!

        Get it?

        Ever since I visited the Mob museum in Vegas, it has been apparent tome that what we are seeing, the truly big picture is continuing growth of the Mob. Evil is growing faster and faster. Morals breaking down, drugs and all illicit trades getting bigger and bigger, the evil growing world wide, not just America.

        Elements include

        Open borders, the East Coast mob taking over DC. The Deep State formerly known as La Cosa Nostra. The evil penetrating all the government agencies, the biasing of the judicial system, the cartels being go betweens between China and the American customers, the cartels quickly taking over American cities via MS13 and being aided by Soros “appointed” Mayors and DAs.

        The Mob is taking over globally.

        What is the Mob? Sociopaths with power motivations that never fit in and are going to get themselves ahead by punishing everyone else with evil. Bigger and bigger with technology providing more and more instruments to wreak havoc with.

    Dear JHK Admin,
    “Mr. Trump adroitly avoided that trap, and many other legal pitfalls the deep state laid for him, and might have won reelection but for the well-organized ballot fraud of 2020.”
    and,
    “Despite all attempts to disable him in office, Mr. Trump, as president, got to see an awful lot of classified material, including all the evidence of Hillary Clinton’s Russia Collusion hoax, abetted by the FBI, the DOJ, CIA, and DOD, plus all the lawless shenanigans that took place in the FISA court.”

    When I read about the heuristics of historical thinking and analysis, I was given a number of rules of thumb as to how to assess information given to me from history as to the confidence level that something could be believed or not. Could this eye-witness account be trusted more or less than that other one?

    The most interesting and subtle of these heuristics is the “absence of relevant information.” What should we be seeing if someone is speaking about something that is factual?

    The Trump campaign was given the opportunity to present relevant and incontrovertible information to prove its case of voter fraud in courts of law and CHOSE not to do so in any substantial amount, relying mostly on unproven hearsay (or even hearsay of hearsay). In the two years since, no one has been able to prove widespread systematic fraud of the sort you claim as true. Do not be surprised if many people do not agree with you on that basis. That violates that heuristic of absent information.

    If what you wrote in the second quote were actually true, given what we know of Donald Trump–he would have USED it. He isn’t shy about destroying his enemies and dancing on their graves. Why was he so shy? The deep state? You have suggested that he had his own people in place towards the end. So, why not use it if he had it assuming his people would have given him access to it? It is deeply unsatisfying to argue that “he was keeping it for the best time!” The best time to use it would have been BEFORE the election, rather than hold onto it. The ex-President is a cunning and worthy opponent to those who oppose him. Holding this information when he can’t use it instead of using it when he could use it with the full power of his office makes zippo sense to me. And I am pretty sure that the ex-Prez would have made the calculation that it is better to defend the outrage as the RE-elected Prez of the US than as a general (though very wealthy) citizen after the fact.

    • Slugoon August 13, 2022 at 3:28 pm #

      It’s a bit rich to talk about a lack of evidence and ‘absence of relevant information’ when it comes to DJT given the numerous hoaxes and falsehoods put upon him.

      I apply the same heuristic analysis to vaccine efficacy, systemic racism, the Ghost of Kiev, white supremacists, Jan 6th… works both ways.

    • MrMangoOnMyShoulder August 13, 2022 at 5:24 pm #

      hustled – I’m disappointed that you only used the word “heuristics” three times in this post. Surely you could have fit in a few more if you had just applied yourself.

    • justanotherguy August 13, 2022 at 11:03 pm #

      two problems – trump has evidence to use in suits against several bad actors, shrillary is the one mentioned in the article, but faced obstruction of justice charges vis a vis the constant ongoing investigation they had him under. they are terrified he uses what he has now that he is not encumbered by the constant entanglements. and guess what they were after? but these idiots can’t imagine this the evidence he has against these criminals has not been copied?

      second, not a single vote fraud court action ever entertained any evidence – every single one was dismissed on procedural grounds, prior to *any action at all* that could have resulted in adjudication of that evidence.

      if the claims of voter fraud were absurd, why did they never let the cases come to light in an actual argued contest in court?

      that was rhetorical, by the way.

      h.e. – you often seem to pick a point of view that requires deliberately ignoring inconvenient facts? remember going round and round about ukraine until you took a look at the history of the minsk accords?

      • Jarek August 13, 2022 at 3:24 pm #

        Actually at least one Men’s Rights Advocate, Aaron Clarey, agrees with you. He says that women have never really like men that much, only needing us to support them. Now that the world has changed, they don’t have to pretend any more – and some like you, don’t.

        Interesting even if hard to take. As a Libertarian ethicist, he says their choice has to be respected.

        And of course, it underlines our need to protect ourselves from the women who continue to pretend they like us but will screw us over in time.

        Somebody did a sociological study of the Japanese internment camps: Many of the marriages broke up since there was no economic incentive to keep them together. In other word, no reason for the women to pretend any longer.
