     In this springtime of the corona virus, Fridays creep around like hooded sentinels of dread as America faces another weekend of social emptiness and vanishing prospects. The bars have opened back up in some quarters of the country, sure, but who has the spare cash to pay for three margaritas at ten bucks a pop? Anyway, who expects the government hand-outs to go on forever? And if they did, as in current Democratic Party theory, what kind of country would we be, and what kind of people?

Fridays are also the days when things drop ominously: stock indexes, releases of shocking information, indictments coming down. Which brings me to the recent antics of Judge Emmet G. Sullivan. What sort of mischief has this cheeky fellow cooked up in the drawn-out case of General Flynn? Why, to draw it out months further by demurring to grant the DOJ’s motion to dismiss and to take over its role as prosecutor, which is not exactly consistent with American workings of jurisprudence.

Last weekend, in a well-leaked conference call, it appears, Judge Sullivan took marching orders from former President Obama who suggested snaring General Flynn on a perjury rap for withdrawing his guilty plea, and whaddaya know, the stratagem laid itself out this past week like a fully-crafted macramé, all the little tufts and knots neatly in place ­— thanks to the busy little fingers of Lawfare attorneys burning the midnight oil all week to get the thing hoisted up on the wall. The tortured logic of the scheme was really something to behold: by withdrawing a guilty plea Flynn had entered under oath, he would be guilty of lying to the court about being guilty in the first place, and therefore had perjured himself. Imagine the interior of the legal minds responsible for that: dank chambers of rot crawling with centipedes and mealybugs of subterfuge.

The judge’s transparently perfidious moves revealed the desperation of Mr. Obama and scores of former and current officials allied with him, who are themselves liable for prosecution in the unraveling tapestry of RussiaGate. There is a sentiment welling up in this land that enough is enough with these devious pranks of crooked lawyers, and today, being Friday, would be an excellent moment for the DC District US Court of Appeals to issue a writ of mandamus for Judge Sullivan to cut the shit and get on with his bound duty to put the Flynn case to rest. A nice added touch, if necessary, would be to kick Judge Sullivan’s seditious ass off the case and replace him with a judge who understands established law and precedent.

The precedent has been reestablished as recently as last week on another case (U.S. v. Sineneng-Smith) when the US Supreme Court ruled 9-0, in an opinion penned by none other than the Notorious RBG herself, that “…courts are essentially passive instruments of government… they ‘do not, or should not, sally forth each day looking for wrongs to right….’” The Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure (Rule 48a) give no power to a district court to deny a prosecutor’s motion to dismiss charges even when a judge disagrees. It’s pretty goshdarn cut-and-dry.

Of course, Attorney General Barr would have had to file such an appeal to the higher court. Being as how deathly quiet his office has been all week, since Judge Sullivan revealed his scheme, it seems plausible to me that Mr. Barr has done exactly something like that. It would be very Barr-like for him to do it with absolutely no fanfare. Grandstanding is not his thing, whereas sending a clear message in defense of the rule-of-law is very much his thing and the message now is that the law is not to be used as a weapon against the workings of justice itself.

I hope I am right in expecting that Mr. Barr has acted speedily and silently against this band of skulking white-shoed caitiffs. The situation calls for a swift and forceful response. An appeal for a mandamus order is, by definition, an emergency measure ­— for actions that require immediate correction. The lawyers who infest the DC swamp need a brisk whack on their toothy snouts, driving them back into their Lawfare mud-holes. Not a few of them need to be skewered and flayed, their hides nailed to a wall as a lesson to those remaining.

This Friday would be a truly ripe moment for some actual indictments to come down against some of the perps of RussiaGate and its associated misdeeds. There are so many of them that I suppose they will have to be brought out in bunches and batches, at regular intervals as spring turns toward summer, when all the free money is gone and the American people begin to seethe and holler, and need a vivid reminder that the law is still a presence in our lives.

    I had a look to see who appointed this judge and was a little surprised to see one of the Bushes appointed him.
    So is this a judge attempting to right a wrong OR is he simply grasping at his only chance for 15 minutes of fame and a book deal?
    Time will tell.
    Good essay today Jim.

      Jim, you must have read this bombshell from Powell… the fact that your excellent essay did not make even passing reference is mind-boggling!

      • sprawlcapital May 15, 2020 at 1:33 pm #

        I only read the Powell letter a few minutes ago; Is that mind-boggling too?

        By the way, you’re right, the letter is a bombshell. Sidney Powell is a legal genius, in stark contrast to Barack Obama.

      You are correct I did not read far enough down.
      That makes what he is doing more understandable he is simply helping his party of choice and being yet another ACTIVIST Judge in a long line of THEM.

    We should all know by now that the laws of the USA don’t apply to the likes of Obama et al. in govt. Even unelected bureaucrats seem to be immune from the application of law. The American people appear to be too lazy to give this issue any thought at all.

        Learned Helplessness is Martin E. P. Seligman’s best known theory of animal behaviour which he studied back in the day when applying electric shocks to beagles was ethically acceptable to research scientists in Behavioral Psychology in North America. This was also the same time that the CIA was torturing Americans & Canadians in their MKULTRA programme.

        Behaviourally, human beings have myriad adaptive responses & capabilities from that of Seligman’s animal model beagles that had no possible escape route from Dr. Seligman’s electronic torture sessions applied daily until the beagles habituated to the Conditioned Stimulus of electron shock and gave up entirely to fall into the experimental paradigm of Learned Helplessness.

          What kind of so called person spends so much time watching animals respond to pain ?

          • Robert White May 15, 2020 at 2:34 pm #

            Professor Martin E. P. Seligman is exactly the type of text book Psychopath that leans towards unethical manipulation of behaviour in animals & human beings under a guise of scientific understanding of behaviour.

            If you read Jane Mayer’s _The Dark Side_ you will see that Professor Seligman is one of the primary academics that loaned his scientific reputation to the Central Intelligence Agency contractors that designed the torture regime protocol for the George W. Bush & Republican Party Torture Regime that corresponded to the Iraq false flag events otherwise known as 911 WTC 1 & 2 plus Building 7 Controlled Demolition.

            Experimental Psychology houses some of the most diabolical minds in the world, believe me. Moreover, Seligman & U. Penn makes millions off of training the USArmy soldiers how to be ‘happy’ whilst raping, pillaging, & looting the third world sovereign nations that oppose USA hegemon status & oligopoly.

          • Robert White May 15, 2020 at 3:44 pm #

            I should also add that Seligman was an old colleague of mine mere months before the CIA hired him for in-house CIA lectures on Learned Helplessness held in 1999/2000.

            I used to be an administrator on InterPsych which was an international Experimental Psychology web forum for academics in the late 90s.

            In one anonymous post, a technician wrote how he was going to break a beagle’s leg the next morning for the third time. Not psychology, but some kind of physical test. He was dreading how the dog would wag its tail when it saw him.

            He was the only being in the dog’s universe. And being a dog, it needed to love someone…..

            To his credit, he was in great pain. No one knows what happened. Did he quit? And even if he did, someone would be hired to Break the Beagle’s Leg.

      Your right for the president can pardon them anytime he wishes,and he does if he can make a little front page news.Its strange how such nonsense can dictate three years as they do nothing except juice up the markets.

      I was reading earlier(Strategic Culture) how they gamed a nationwide shut/lock down back in 2001, that was under Bush’s war on terror, along with the Patriot Act and Homeland Security Act, so it was in the making waiting for just the right opportunity,perhaps that’s why Trump waited so long before he was even willing to admit that there was a virus. so that it would find ground thru out the country,of course we will never know for the people are the last to know.!!1

    When are we going to see a one hundred man strong SWAT team armed with automatic weapons and grenades break in to the Obama and Clinton mansions at three o’clock in the morning with CNN helicopters above broadcasting live footage?

    When are we going to expose the receipts for their treachery back to China? People seriously do not understand the big picture here and why it all happened.

        Dianne Feinstein confirmed that she turned over documents regarding stock trades ahead of the COVID-19 announcements. No word yet from Pelosi. Pelosi is notorious for such dealings.

        Calls were made and people sold ahead of the news of a coming “virus”. It was a staged a plan just a few months before. Look at Event 201 pandemic tabletop exercise hosted by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation on October, 2019, in New York City.

        Bill Gates already has India’s Serum Institute preparing a Gates vaccine for the Corona virus with 60 million doses before it has been approved. Who is paying for that? Probably Gates. Will he make a profit? That is not philanthropy when you get a return — it’s called an investment.

        EVERY journalist who has been pitching this story should be compelled to reveal their stock and bonds activity since August 2019. There has been way too much commie press to ignore. This is a political agenda and one that they also just happened to have profited from. Senator Burr is just the tip of the iceberg.

        The WHO waited to declare this a pandemic to ensure friends and family were all divested. It is time to include them in this investigation along with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and everything they are associated with.

        Tedros Adhanom should reveal his portfolio after all the damage he has caused around the globe. If he sold out before declaring this a pandemic, he should be in prison, but preferable shot dead.

        This is a deep international gov mafia mafia orchestrated event, and China is in the heart of it. They are profiting and acquiring US dollars via credit default swaps.

          China is one of the centers of global power that is identified in the Bible as playing a major role in the end. They will be on the side of the king of this world. No wonder they are playing such a significant role in creating the architecture and infrastructure for total global surveillance and control. That serves his purposes perfectly.

          • CancelMyCard May 15, 2020 at 12:40 pm #

            Sounds like horse shit.

            Winding stair cases in German (and most) castles from the middle ages are built with the same logic, but only because it actually gives the person positioned up top defending an advantage.

            In terms of a road, it would defeat the purpose when both people are right handed, as it just puts them on equal footing.

            Oh goodness, it hasn’t occurred to high-IQ Chickenhawk that being on an equal footing is what everybody might want, rather than being attacked by a highwayman (who already has the advantage of surprise) from the wrong side.

            So he says horseshit, because he’s so desperate for attention.

          • Nightowl May 17, 2020 at 4:19 pm #

            The point of the staircase design was to give an advantage to the person on top (usually the defender of said castle).

        Yes it would, but I don’t think its going to happen. So far Trump and Barr (and Durham) have indicted/arrested NO ONE. NOT ONE of the coup plotters. They are all free, living big off of book deals and jobs at CNN or MSNBC. So disappointing. I thought Trump was a reputed hard counter-puncher. I guess if you go by his Tweets he is. But if you go by his actions, particularly punitive legal actions, he is as harmless as they come. I’m sorry but all the excuses in the world about “timing is everything” and “the pain is coming” is all BS. I fear that conservatives will be as disappointed in the outcome of the Barr/Durham affair as liberals were with the Mueller report and the impeachment hoax. Nothing will come of it and the corrupt will continue to rip us all off and keep us divided.

    From the looks of Judge Sullivan I would guess the onset of early dementia and the Lawfare rogues are taking full advantage of a guy if you said the word “Obama” to him he would have a rapture fit.

    What Jim said, but the stakes are extremely high. If the “White Liberals” get taken out by their own corruption they will be booted so far down the Intersectional totem pole they will be underground. All that easy loot from the government budget and lobbyist cashola, all those elite university spots for their Bradens and Briennas up in a puff of smoke. Sure some can coast on trust fund or two but most are a cash flow type of person.

      I have little doubt Sullivan is crooked, however there is much we don’t know here.

      Why encourage Flynn to plea innocent? Why did Flynn stick with the guilty plea? Why did he then change it when his counsel was replaced?

      We know Covington was crooked at this point (they just handed over another 17,000 documents they had hidden), and we know Mueller threatened Flynn’s family, but what else is going on behind the scenes? Van Grack perjured himself and left the case, resulting in the DOJ dropping it, and now via Lawfare, Sullivan is trying to make himself a prosecutor of sorts.

      Trump has repeatedly said Flynn will be fine, so I think there is much more going on than meets the eye.

      • Majella May 15, 2020 at 6:07 pm #

        So, Sullivan is crooked. Your sense of disappointment is palpable, given he was going to blow the whole thing up only a week ago.

        And “Trump has repeatedly said Flynn will be fine” sounds like famous last words. Given how indecently unreliable statements of anything by Himself are. it’s probably the kiss of death.

      Nah, they’ll just have that particular way of thinking removed and its diametric opposite installed instantly via Twitter and MSNBC. The mantra “believe all women” became literally “don’t believe all women” nanoseconds after Biden’s pussy-grabbing was alleged in the mainstream media. Not only have most Democratic party fundamentalists ignored the effects of their blatant hypocrisy on their supposed moral authority (being the self-described “good people”), there are even those who are reveling in that hypocrisy, because Trump poses an even bigger “existential threat” to our country than, you know, pissing on the Constitution, rule of law, actual moral principles, etc.

      And good call on this whole shit-show Jim.

    I agree with you and at the same time strongly disagree.
    If this is not responded to then we are quickly being relegated to a third world nation a banana republic.
    Some people need to be put on trial for this and then go to jail our alphabet federal law enforcement agencies have mud all over them now.
    Obama needs to go to jail and possibly GWBush as well for sure Hillary and after Trump gets out of office a solid investigation needs to be done to see what he has been up to.

      I admit to having a unique perspective. My eyes are open. Does anyone here think that my unmasking of Asoka so many years ago was without consequence? He really was working for the government and shock of shocks, ‘they’ have resources.

      The fact that I only used publicly available resources was the only thing that kept me from being arrested. There were consequences.

      In 1610 Urban VIII told his inquisitor to make Galileo recant. But Galileo was not tortured and only shown the instruments of torture. Not having broken laws my situation was similar. Leaving me with a particular and unique attitude about what it means for the FBI to be in your shit.

      And I say this shit does not matter.

Julianus was killed and the Praetorian were summoned to a field and ordered to surrender their arms and strip naked. Then they were told to leave Rome and never come back.

            Benr,

            It is certainly a real pheonomenon. There was a similar phenomenon with Bush, Jr., but different in that Bush actually had a rather long list of documented crimes. Many very serious.

            The Trump syndrome is driven entirely by McMedia wizardry. People of low intelligence or those who never learned critical thought or are low on information, become caught up in an obsessive pattern, focusing on things that exist in an increasingly deranged fantasy world.

            My wife (a social worker and psychologist) says if it were in the DSM V, it would be on the borderline spectrum.

            IDK, personally, but it is an incredible phenomenon.

          • Majella May 18, 2020 at 10:55 pm #

            “The Trump syndrome is driven entirely by McMedia wizardry. People of low intelligence or those who never learned critical thought or are low on information, become caught up in an obsessive pattern, focusing on things that exist in an increasingly deranged fantasy world.

            Perhaps, but not in my case. I recall first hearing about this Fool in the 1980s and from the very off, I thought him a Fool and a Liar. Since then, he’s only gone on to prove me right again & again.

            His accidental elevation to the presidency was a moment of some surprise – as much for him as for me, I believe. So, if it’s “TDS” I’ve had it since the mid-1980s, but never lost a wink of asleep over him.

        The last talking point I saw from the DNC Ghouls was that Biden has owned up to his actions and is the first candidate to openly do so while running for office.

        They are trying to flip it in anticipation of the hammering he will take for being a child groper and sexual predator.

    I seem to recall some several months back, that JHK was fulsome in his praise of Judge Sullivan and his decision to let Flynn ‘think about ‘ his guilty plea; it was augured as a sign that His Honour was keen to see the case tried and all the ‘dirt’ exposed. He was lauded most fulsomely…at the time.

        As Majella implies, nothing actually changed. Previously the judge made a decision that pro-Trump propagandists spun as vindicating Team Trump. Now he has made a decision that cuts the other way.

        It’s not that complicated.

        There is nothing else going on beyond Trumpists’ blind devotion to the Dear Leader and their anger at the outside world. It is a trait of cults. It is a mistake to look for sense in it.

        It’s amazing to see an honest to goodness personality cult in the US. And with such an absurd character at the head of it.

            We had a Democratic president for eight years, through January 2017. He took office during the worst economic crisis in 75 years and two long-running and quagmirish wars. Which had occurred under the previous eight years under a Republican president.

            I’m genuinely curious – how did that Democratic president make your life and prospects in life, or those of your kids, so much worse? Given that you view his party as psychopaths etc.

            But I can certainly explain how Trump has f*cked me and my kids:

            – signing McConnell’s upper-end tax cut well into an economic expansion and declining deficits established under his predecessor, taking ANNUAL deficits to $1 trillion for the first time ever – and that was BEFORE the Coronavirus stimulus. One way or another, present and future taxpayers are on the hook for all of that.
            – eliminating my SALT deduction
            – sabotaging Obamacare while flagrantly ignoring his promise to replace it with “something great” (which, let’s face it, we all knew was bullshit) – thus increasing the risk that I will be without coverage if I lose my job
            – running the most incompetent, disastrous and stupid response to a national crisis since James Buchanan. Or technically, I suppose, appointing his comically unqualified son-in-law to run it.
            – And last and least, wasting my time with his clownish press conferences and tweetings.

        • UN OUT OF USA May 17, 2020 at 8:58 pm #

          “There is nothing else going on”. Ridiculous. What is going on is that Flynn, a patriot, who was (and still is) feared by Obama, was smeared and falsely accused and whose son was also threatened if he didn’t admit (falsely) to lying to the FBI. What the hell kind of justice system is that? THAT is what went on! This has nothing to do with Trump. Flynn was toast the minute the mulatto president found out that Flynn wanted to clean house within the intelligence agencies which would have exposed the massive corruption going on within the Obama administration. The only thing this has to do with Trump, is that Trump might have to pardon Flynn since our (in)justice system seems entirely incapable of doing it themselves, thanks to corrupt activist judges with Sullivan. Since when can judges continue to charge someone with anything when their accuser, in this case the DOJ, drops charges??

          • HapMan May 17, 2020 at 10:41 pm #

            “…the mulatto president…”

            That’s pretty much what all of this comes down to for the fans of the Birther president, isn’t it?

    • Majella May 15, 2020 at 11:38 am #

      I also seem to recall HigIQwl referring to Judge Sullivan’s ‘other remarks’ etc, only last week…which remarks had been construed as indicative of the good Judge’s intention to expose all the BS etc.

      Now, this self–same Judge is no more than a cringing DNC lackey, taking “coded” orders from Obama. That this Judge is utterly corrupt,

          They can put Kiddie-porn there if they want to and the human being is generally not sufficiently cognizant of this fact. There are psychological reasons for this. To admit that ‘they’ have this power and to also simultaneously admit that they are without oversight is a chilling realization. Chilling realization, an uncomfortable truth, or an oh-fuck moment. Call it what you will. It is real. I’ll explain by analogy.

          Imagine there is a pandemic and a virus is decimating capitalism and killing people. Imagine that people are presented with the choice of:

          (A) It came from a wet market.
          (B) It came from a biological laboratory.

          Leaving the question of which is true aside, which one is more comfortable to believe.

          (A) Is scary because it could happen again. An invisible enemy is extra scary.
          (B) Is comfortable to believe. Find the lab and burn it to the ground. The enemy with a face can be dealt with. We want to know our enemies.

          (C) is there free will. Lets forget about (C) for a while and take on (D) for denial about that.

          (B) is more comfortable is the point and the temptation to do mental gymnastics and take on that belief for some is, irresistible.

          So can they put kiddie-porn on your phone and ruin anyone anytime they wish?

          Oh fuck no. This is AMERICA and that can’t happen here. We have RIGHTS. We have apple pie. This is what you want to believe.

            Thanks for that perspective and insight into why the Conspiracy Theory is the comfortable place to go.

            As to the State’s ability to do whatever it wants to shut down a dissenting voice, I have NO doubt. As to those to whom it happens, we generally don’t ever hear from them again, right? They lose credibility and voice.

            The Asoka exposure – I’ve been reading this blog since about 2007 or so, and can recall the name but I missed the expose – entirely. Can you possibly point to a year (if not a month) where I could find this in the archive?

            I have covered the story here before a few times. Which knowing any comment I make will be modified or deleted as the weeks roll by is kind of dumb. Nobody is perfect.

            The next time I do it I will write it up and post it on my own website where any database hocus-pocus would have to be up close and personal. That gets to the reason why I write my own website from the bottom up by the way. Then I can just link to it in one of my fancy links.

            I control the vertical and horizontal at chasingthesquirrel and being intimately connected with all the code there I’m likely to notice any funny bizness. An additional perk is knowing that messing with me has to be a custom job unless malfeasance is totally naked and overt. In that case I can suffer from standard procedures just like everyone else.

            I am a pain in the ass to people who say stay off the grass. That is not all I want to be in life but it is better than nothing.

            When will I write it up again? When I feel like it but right now I am up to something and getting my learn on. And no hurry for me. It is an uphill battle so I’ll roll that rock my way.

            People don’t want to believe that a digital reality has no firm foundation and that invisible people control the net infrastructure and shape public opinion. Who wants to believe that? That is horrible thing. To think that is to apprehend we live in a disgusting world without hope, so Satan be away! It is too much to take on in one day.

            As an American I’m likely to have at least one gun. I won’t say if I do or don’t.

            I remind myself they have nukes. Big nukes, and drones so precise they could be used in the burbs.

    True story.

    My sister told me about a time her daughter in 4th grade came home from school and told her: “we studied gay history today; did you know this person was gay, and that person was gay…?”

    So my sister said she sat her daughter down, held her hand and said:

    “Now _______, we like gay people, we respect gay people; BUT WE’RE NOT GAY, understand?”

    I asked my sister why she said that last part to her, and she said she didn’t know.

    So I asked her if she felt the school was promoting homosexuality; and that was the reason she felt it necessary to remind her daughter “but we are not gay?”

    She paused, and then said yes.

    This was in the “Peoples Republic of Alexandria Va” circa 1994

    • Janos Skorenzy May 15, 2020 at 1:22 pm #

      Yes, this is exactly the confused way ordinary people talk. If she talked directly and strongly, her daughter might repeat it at school and then a shit storm would commence. That’s one reason anyway – not that this was a conscious decision or strategy of course.

    Incredibly ominous statement by Trump:

    Yeah, I think we’re gonna have a vaccine by the end of the year, we’re doing very well with a vaccine, and I will tell you something I just, literally left a meeting, we’re mobilizing our military, and other forces, but we’re mobilizing our military. On the basis that we do have a vaccine, you know, it’s a massive job to give this vaccine, our military is now being mobilized, so at the end of the year we’re going to be able to give it to a lot of people, very very rapidly.

    JS: Forced vaccinations then? How else to interpret this? Interestingly according to Rush, Dr Fauci was positioned behind Trump wearing a giant hijab, basically a muzzle. The little creep has finally been silenced and the Good Guys, REAL MEN, are here to save the day. Good Cop/Bad Cop of the kind that works in anti-intellectual, military loving America?

      • Janos Skorenzy May 15, 2020 at 2:53 pm #

        Why the quotations marks? Because they could just opt out of school? That may not be enough in the years to come. In Germany for example, homeschooling is outlawed. It may continue here, but the vaccine may be mandatory for all, everywhere. Dissent is fine: but you will not be able to buy or sell or enter any public buildings.

      Trump has to play the game at times. A good example is the bombing of that empty Syrian airfield. There is no way to get through the constant McMedia and Uniparty attacks if you telegraph every move and are openly belligerent before you have the power to act. What counts are policies.

            More totally nutjob bullshit ‘red meat’ for the Conspiracy Brigade to get all lathered up about. It’s known as “The Cross of St Peter”.

            Two facts (probably ‘alternative facts’ to your mind, of course):

            “According to the Church of Satan, an upside-down or inverted cross is not an official symbol of loyalty.” Apparently, if the cross’s arms are broken, THAT would indicate a rejection of Christ.

            “In Christianity, it is associated with the martyrdom of Peter the Apostle. The symbol originates from the Catholic tradition that when sentenced to death, Peter requested that his cross be upside down, as he felt unworthy of being crucified in the same manner as Jesus.”

            But then again I’m a lapsed Irish-style Catholic Atheist, so I really couldn’t give a monkey’s.

    The current average salary of an NFL player is…$860,000. The lowest entry level salary is…$480,000.

    What was really offensive, I should suggest, is that the two were not wearing masks…they are not socially responsible. I find this reprehensible. Why they thought they could get away with the crime is little understood.

            Janos et al;

            A post script regarding the Quinton Dunbar situation;

            A reason* has surfaced for the outrage committed in Florida. It seems that Quinton, aside from being an NFL player with a projected 2020 salary of…$3,500,000, is also a noted medical researcher**. Apparently he is very close to finding a cure for cancer. He has his own lab in the basement of one of his homes, on which he has spent…hundreds of dollars, and has spent…many hours searching for a cure for this most evil scourge of humanity.

            Success was very close. Working with common substances…orange juice and Bukov vodka, he was getting positive results. So near, yet so far. After several unsuccessful test results, he needed release from the enormous pressure, not to mention unfulfilled expectations his mama and peers laid upon him, and the incident in Florida was the result.

            The world needs men like Dunbar. Release him!

            *possible?
            **plays doctor regularly with his…escorts. Majors in Gynecology, with a minor in Proctology….

          I would say “unbelievable” but unfortunately it’s all too believable. Several years back, four talented and highly sought after young high school football players where I lived decided to rob a 7-11 for “extra cash for prom” (their words), were caught, plead guilty and might still be in prison or returned to it if they continued in their chosen career. There were indignant editorials in the paper claiming “their lives would be ruined and promising athletic opportunities destroyed!!!!” but not a word of sympathy for the terrified clerk.

    Glenn Greenwald’s latest installment of his show, System Update, is the most thorough analysis of the Flynn case that I’ve seen. Greenwald’s analysis brings up some larger issues such as the necessity of making a distinction between ideology and evidence. The failure to make that distinction in American politics has resulted in that politics becoming tribal, divided into two opposing camps, Right and Left, each willing to go out on a shaky limb of evidence-free assertions, thus Greenwald contends. Anyway, here’s a link to his show:

      It is called Kayfabe. First truth is denied and then a false narrative is created so inquiry into lies is prevented. The brain fold which all allowed you to apprehend Trumps game; and you are in the minority about that, is the next to the same brain fold that registers disgust. Hence your reaction.

      The Donald has had a long association with the WWF. They feel him and he feels them. That happens to be next to my locus of disgust.

      This is one of many articles which document the Trump kayfabe connection.

        Half the country saw Lucifer himself win the White House, while the other half saw a genius performer gouge the eyes of Crooked Hillary and toss her out of the ring, to the melodious howls of those who thought they had reality figured out. In the end, Trump’s antagonists failed to understand the heel’s motto:

        “If you counterattack me, I shall become more popular than you can possibly imagine.”

        This part does not apply to you, Laundromat Blues: To the rest of you, cut the shit about me having ‘TDS‘. It is getting old. I obviously apprehend what is going on rather well.

Any number of investigations can be launched … his shakedowns in Ukraine, his contacts with Chinese Intelligence, his brothers contracts in Russia, sex assault charge and stuff we don’t even know about yet … and they will be from Day 1.

He would give them tips and they would act on them and lose their shirt. They kept going to him amazingly and they kept losing. Finally he gave them a tip so bad they lost everything. So they got on the train and headed to West Palm Beach to tell the guy off. When they arrived in the train station, they jumped off the train and looked at each other for support. “Are you ready?” “Absolutely” They started walking again and one of them stopped short, grabbed tthe others arm and said “But what if he doesn’t give us any more tips?” Now that’s a Trump supporter.

    The girls be’ind the bar they laughed an’ giggled fit to die,
    I outs into the street again an’ to myself sez I:
    O it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ ” Tommy, go away ” ;
    But it’s ” Thank you, Mister Atkins,” when the band begins to play
    The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
    O it’s ” Thank you, Mister Atkins,” when the band begins to play.

    I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
    They gave a drunk civilian room, but ‘adn’t none for me;
    They sent me to the gallery or round the music-‘alls,
    But when it comes to fightin’, Lord! they’ll shove me in the stalls!
    For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ ” Tommy, wait outside “;
    But it’s ” Special train for Atkins ” when the trooper’s on the tide
    The troopship’s on the tide, my boys, the troopship’s on the tide,
    O it’s ” Special train for Atkins ” when the trooper’s on the tide.

    Yes, makin’ mock o’ uniforms that guard you while you sleep
    Is cheaper than them uniforms, an’ they’re starvation cheap.
    An’ hustlin’ drunken soldiers when they’re goin’ large a bit
    Is five times better business than paradin’ in full kit.
    Then it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an` Tommy, ‘ow’s yer soul? ”
    But it’s ” Thin red line of ‘eroes ” when the drums begin to roll
    The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
    O it’s ” Thin red line of ‘eroes, ” when the drums begin to roll.

    We aren’t no thin red ‘eroes, nor we aren’t no blackguards too,
    But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
    An’ if sometimes our conduck isn’t all your fancy paints,
    Why, single men in barricks don’t grow into plaster saints;
    While it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an` Tommy, fall be’ind,”
    But it’s ” Please to walk in front, sir,” when there’s trouble in the wind
    There’s trouble in the wind, my boys, there’s trouble in the wind,
    O it’s ” Please to walk in front, sir,” when there’s trouble in the wind.

    You talk o’ better food for us, an’ schools, an’ fires, an’ all:
    We’ll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
    Don’t mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
    The Widow’s Uniform is not the soldier-man’s disgrace.
    For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an` Chuck him out, the brute! ”
    But it’s ” Saviour of ‘is country ” when the guns begin to shoot;
    An’ it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ anything you please;
    An ‘Tommy ain’t a bloomin’ fool – you bet that Tommy sees!

      Tommy Robinson isn’t worth anyone’s hate. He’s an attention seeking little scumbag thug. And his name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon. He took his pseudonym from a well-known local soccer hooligan because that’s the kind of person he admires and emulates.

      Lost his decent job at a London airport for beating up an off-duty policeman (before his current ‘calling’). He put the successful prosecution of one of the grooming gangs in jeopardy with his attention-seeking antics outside the court. And when he last got out of jail, did he go to hug his traumatised little boy? No, he headed for the cameras, which are his oxygen.

      He’s the same kind of common thug as the typical profile of the minor ‘Muslim’ criminal who ‘sees the light’ and becomes a jihadi terrorist without ever having read a word of the Koran. The guy is just a wanker.

            JS: Do you recognize this hate filled spiel? That’s you from above. Own your own hatred.

          • GreenAlba May 16, 2020 at 1:21 pm #

            You don’t know what hatred is, Janos. The guy’s a nasty little toerag but not worth hating. Except perhaps to anyone who’s been done personal harm by him. He nearly did harm to the victims of the grooming gangs by putting his personal need for adulation and grandstanding above the workings of the law (which proceeded to find them guilty, but no thanks to the attention seeker).

            Again, you have no idea what hate is.

            Hate-filled spiel because I told you who he took his pseudonym from and called him an attention-seeking little scumbag thug? That’s just my observation of his character. It involves no emotional investment whatsoever.

            Maybe you think I hate you too. That would be sad. 🙂

            Wrong. The Government was studiously ignoring the Muslim gangs until people like Robinson made them pay attention.

            Fathers and Brothers who tried to save the girls were quietly (no attention from the State Media) charged, arrested, and jailed. If they actually got physical with any Muslim, they went down for the count of course to Prison.

            “Wrong. The Government was studiously ignoring the Muslim gangs until people like Robinson made them pay attention.”

            That’s too funny. Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (having lost his proper job due to his general thuggery) was running a tanning parlour in London. Oh, did I mention he has also used the names Andrew McMaster, Paul Harris, Wayne King, and Stephen Lennon? And that he’s been convicted variously of violence, financial and immigration fraud and drug possession?

            Like I said, a common thug, and one who doesn’t like using his own name (that’s how, as ‘Tommy Robinson’, his previous convictions remained unknown until someone dug out who and what he actually was).

            Funny, though, you have to admit, that he decided to make his living making white people less white. That’s cute.

            Anyway, to the point. The thug was in London managing a tanning parlour, not sleuthing in the northern wastes of Rochdale. He was a Johnny-come-lately to the grooming gang story and had nothing to do with uncovering it. His contribution was to put the prosecutions of the girls’ tormentors in jeopardy, because all he wants is media coverage of HIMSELF.

            Your hero is a publicity-seeking arse.

            “Fathers and Brothers who tried to save the girls were quietly (no attention from the State Media) charged, arrested, and jailed. If they actually got physical with any Muslim, they went down for the count of course to Prison.”

            And naturally you have some solid references for this nonsense, other than a load of tendencious drivel in Amren (the ones who tried confusing ‘refugees’ with Pakistani immigration from the 1950s – which would work fine with the kind of people who get their ‘facts’ from Amren).

            Some names, at least, please, of those fathers and brothers who were arrested and jailed. C’mon, Janos, you can do better than this. You’re letting the side down.

    The temp got as high as 88 today. I took my first bike ride of 2020 and dumped the bike. Scraped up my right knee and did just a little damage to the bike.

    Two minutes after going down a strong black guy in a PSE&G truck came along and got me to my feet. Then 2 other guys stopped and the 3 of them together lifted the bike into an upright position.

    I drove home and never mentioned to my wife what happened or that would have been the end of my riding career.

    I’ve owned 4 bikes since my mid-20s and this is the first time I dropped one. I’m sore all over, knees, wrists, shoulders.

    I was late in making a right turn and so my tires went into a deep squishy muddy apron on the left side of the street I turned into and I lost it. I stayed on the ground wondering if I broke anything and then the black guy came along. He was a biker too with a Harley soft tail. Believe it or not his name was Christopher Plummer.

    The judge’s transparently perfidious moves revealed the desperation of Mr. Obama and scores of former and current officials allied with him, who are themselves liable for prosecution in the unraveling tapestry of RussiaGate.

    Interesting essay again today, with some robust assertions, but I’m still not buying the fabricated “Obamagate” narrative at all, for the following reasons:

    William Barr is not an honourable man. He is an old-fashioned Hard-right Catholic activists, and these are people to monitor carefully – the Jesuits, Opus Dei, all sorts – they’ve had centuries of practice, and take no prisoners.

    Barr want a theocratic state (he has said so himself), and he has turned the DOJ into an instrument of this project. He has also turned the DOJ into a personal protection agency of Trump. I think it is laughable to assert that Barr has the “rule of law” as high light on the hill … there is far too much mendacious conniving that one can point at.

    Flynn pleaded guilty. And presumably he was guilty of the crimes as charged, and also why Trump dumped him so quickly, so that he wouldn’t be cross-infected by the Flynn-based shilling for Russia and Turkey. Why he is now proposing to plead not guilty is quite rightly something that a decent judge has every right to question, and question very hard.

    It looks, smells, and tastes like political skulduggery – cooked up between Flynn, Barr, and the darker corners of the West Wing.

    Russiagate is real. I certainly believe that Trump was massively assisted by Putin (and his surrogates), because Putin has lots of compromising material on Trump, and presumably Trump cronies.

    The various authorities in Washington had reasonable cause to be deeply concerned about Russian influence both before and after the 2016 election. Had it been the other way around – a President Romney having some intelligence on who was assisting say Bernie Sanders, the Republican-controlled “Deep State” would have done exactly the same as Obama did – but more howls of “treason”.

    There are no crimes. Whatever you think of the machinations of the Obama Administration – and the broader Dems – they certainly don’t have most of the “deep state” on their side. Some agency staff might have been quite partisan, but in what country on earth does that not occur?

    There are no crimes, and plenty of precedent for what has transpired: Republicans have been using FISA warrants for years too, and requests for the unmasking of various agents has been going on for a long time as well.

    The “deep state” has mostly worked against Democratxs and liberals, at least since McCarthyism and the Cold War, but even these very conservative agencies saw a compromised Trump as even a greater threat to whatever they protect – than a commie like Bernie. Their concern has proved correct – Trump (and his entire cabinet) have been a spectacular failure.

    Republicans do far worse. Whatever you think of Obama and the Dems, there is a lot of mock outrage, and faux horror … it is mostly transparently amusing, but it is how power games are played. The Republican Senate refused to appoint an Obama nominee for the Supreme Court – and waited until a pliant Trump allowed not one but two toadies through.

    I think this is far worse – a far greater poke in the eye for US “rule-by-law” than any of the trumped-up mock outrage we’re seeing on the right. “Obamagate” is a sham, and should be seen for what it is: A desperate distraction by a desperate Trump who fears losing on 3 November. I think most Americans will see it for what it is.

  48. thwack May 16, 2020 at 12:17 am #

    For many years I played the song “O Ye Como Va” and never knew what the lyrics meant. Then one time when I was living with a Guy from Colombia, he gave me an English translation of:

    “listen to how it goes, come and enjoy it.”

    Now thats what I find when doing an internet search.

    But thats not all of the lyrics.

    My Colombian friend translated something about a mixed race girl?

    I can’t remember the exact words; but when I search the internet, I can’t find any translation for the part that mentions “mullatta?”

    So my question to the big brained people on JHKs blog is:

    Are the lyrics being censored because they speak of a mixed race girl? (probably gyrating and twerking…?)

    Was my Colombian friend correct in his translation?

    Is the song racist for some reason?

    Here are the lyrics:

    Oye como va

    Mi ritmo

    Bueno pa’ gozar

    Mulata

    So I guess my question is, what does “Bueno pa’ gozar

    Mulata” mean in English?

    and also, why do all the web sites leave that part of the translation out?

    I understand that “mulatto is kinda a bad word because it compares mixed race people to mules, which I think are sterile?

    But two tears in a bucket, fuck it; I can finally keep up with Carlos, so I ain’t giving up on this song even if its racist?

    Somebody made that song for a reason?

    So what does it mean?

    • tucsonspur May 16, 2020 at 12:57 am #

    Don’t think for a minute that I’ve forgotten how it was just a few years ago. The pernicious perpetration of that ignoble perplexity, Oh, I can hardly stand to say it, ‘political correctness’. How can I forget the subversive promoters of sanctuary cities, open borders, chain migration, and endless diversity? That’s right, I can’t. Just like I can’t forget the attacks on whites and their so called ‘white privilege’, and the inclination of universities to question whites and the achievements of the West while constantly beaming about turd world tatterdemalions.

    Free health care for illegals, free tuition, even the right to vote in some cases. One can’t forget, one must not forget, as even now the plight of illegals is lamented because they can’t receive unemployment or PPP checks.

    It’s good to remind ourselves of these things with an election coming up amidst the preoccupations of Covid 19. If necessary, Trump will nail Fauci to the fencepost and chain the Chinee to a colonnade of culpability. Remember, early on Fauci said the virus was no big deal. Watch it though, people like him. Trump will cultivate an image of command and control, while using Biden as a pin ball or Bocce ball. Might just put him up on the cross like Barabbas.

    But it is still a Covid or a Catch-19 or a Corpse-19 situation if you will, and only time will tell the tale as they say. But in this case, so will dead men.

        So there it is again.

    Yes – I agree that some arms of the Democratic Party went overboard in their political defence of an out-of-control “illegal” immigration reality that required a very different response. And the Democratic Party has paid – and will pay – pretty severely I think for all of this.

    Although I would like to see some good evidence that non-citizens have been enrolled to vote – and if this has happened it’s probably minuscule, and probably not as big as the unlawful enrolling of Cuban “refugees” (who vote Republican) on to the Florida rolls.

      Both sides though, are equally portrayed as slightly off their rockers. Both sides are utterly convinced in the rectitude of their cause. Both have internal conflicts and political manipulations that cause blushing shame.

          The nations are owned by the people who are willing to fight for them.

The other 5% need to be sent home if they cannot assimilate. They have no right to come here and try to change the US culture to what they left behind. If they want what they left behind, go back there.

        Skorenzy – absolutely human beings (who happen to identify as ‘white’) have the same rights as everyone else. But there’s no ‘right’ to be a bigot and to demand that YOUR group should be held above any others. Which you do, precisely, at an opportunity.

        • Janos Skorenzy May 16, 2020 at 12:24 pm #

          In other words, we have no group rights – unlike Blacks, Browns, Yellows, etc. And without a viable group, you are nothing as Solzhenitsyn found out in the gulag.

          In fact, we are discriminated against for BEING White as per affirmative action in hiring, loans, contracts, set asides, applications to university, etc.

          I have no right to be a bigot, but non-White individuals do is what you’re saying when you’re statement is broken down into its barest form past the blather.

          Because you apply different standards to us and to them as per the media. Isn’t that right? Don’t shoot off an answer, think about it first.

          • Janos Skorenzy May 16, 2020 at 12:35 pm #

            A “bigot” simply being a person who prefers their own group. Maj would never call a non-White a bigot even if they preferred their own group as natural people invariably do. She applies this different and horrendous standard only to Whites.

            Now a “bigot” might not hate other groups – just as one does not hate other children because one loves one’s own. But obviously in the face of competition for scare resources and over-crowding hate is going to arise. So the Leftist wants this so they can then “solve” the problem by the more of the same means that caused it in the first place. Rinse and repeat until Whites are destroyed. Then they’ll turn on the East Asians – starting with Japan. They haven’t forgotten which side Japan fought on after all.

            Oh you poor thing … LOL! No white person – particularly those full of self-important rage and resentment – has the slightest idea what life-long (centuries-long) real discrimination feels like and tastes like. No idea at all … so I really would stop your eternal whingeing on this point.

            However I do agree that a “society” (however defined and constituted) has every right to decide how it will be grown … but White Supremacy / White Apartheid isn’t an answer to anything.

            Apart from the fact that it is unachievable (like the wall is a hopeless pipedream), it is also unhealthy, static, and an economic disaster. I have asserted many times that thee healthiest, most vibrant, and interesting mix is one where no group has so much dominance that they get to rule the roost over others.

            So I think it’s a GOOD thing that whites have to compromise, and be respectful of others, and learn that they don’t have privileges above and beyond those of any other group.

            I live in a very multicultural society, and think it’s great. I’m seventh generation Australian (my direct forebears came out as convicts on the First Fleet – our version of the Mayflower) and I love the fact that my country is now hugely multi-ethnic.

            There are kids from a hundred countries in my wife’s school … it’s a great place, and I argue far more interesting to live in than all-white Podunk Indiana. All those kids grow up and most become good Aussies. The ratbags … well you get them in every group.

        It’s way to complex for simpleton trolls like us, with Sino-Russian masters (who, I’m guessing must be arguing amongst themselves constantly as well, as to who’s really running the shop) to see through the miasma of shit-drizzle (thanks for that one!) being displayed here.

        But never fear! HigIQwl will make it all plain as day for us, by directing us to the unvarnished truth, as filtered by and disseminated through, with unselfish truth, Twitter. Thank The Stars for his selflessness!

          I’m actually not quite so cynical, and nor am I are a hard-core pro-Biden commie … I’m actually much more middle of the road than the ultra fruit-loops on here understand.

          But their view is – if you’re not a total devotee of Breitbart or Hannity, or their alt-right White Supremacist shite, or the very dark web they inhabit, then they think you’re straight out of the Hard Left.

          They are so freaked out – so mind-fucked by the Trump thing – that they don’t understand that we Centre-Left types do actually have a vision of things that is reasonable.

          But they have drunk so much Kool-Aid that they can’t cope with even the tiniest alternative view. Gosh they must have very very sad lives out there in Podunk Indiana … trawling through the strip malls with their minds in zombie control.

          • Majella May 16, 2020 at 4:31 am #

            I know, Cargill.

            Because I have an unusually strong distaste for bullshit & President Dumbfuckery, the ‘right’ (which they’re actually not) round here immediately extrapolates some sort of ‘love’ or ‘worship’ of The fecking US Democratic Party. Are you fecking KIDDING me?

            As you’ve said many times, the ‘Conservative’ arseholes in the Liberal/Country Coalition are way more ‘Left’ than the US DNC on any day of the week. The same can be said for the “National Party” in NZ.

            So, Americans who have always (mostly) lived in America really have no idea what Social Democracy is, even those who have visited the Twin South Pacific Paradises.

            So, I have no dog in the various races around Flynn, Biden, Hillary, Obama, or any other distraction-du-jour. It is entirely an aqueous rejection from my dorsal plumage.

            But the sheer hypocrisy of the “Trumpistas” is galling. Their lack of self-awareness is galling. Their arrogance in their cultist worship is beyond galling. So, I feel compelled to have a say, knowing, in advance, exactly verbatim, often – how many of the denizens hereabouts will react.

            It’s laughable really. The delusions they exist under in their cult are powerful and abiding. They will never recognize just how they have been conned by a world-class grifter until they either have their personal epiphany or when it’s all over with President Chlorox & his Merry band in the ditch on 4 November.

            So, these guys can slam Obama, Hillary, Biden. Comey, Mueller, Strozk, Page, Brennan, Clapper & whoever else they’d like to see lined up & shot – all good with me. (N.B. they won’t get what they’re jonesing for, anyway.)

            I’m here to point out just how ridiculous their Commander -in -Thief actually is, coz they can’t see the wood for the trees. Not yet.

            To watch a fine intellect like HigIQwl slip into the steamy realms of utter conspiracy theory is a shame. He’s young, smart, with a young family, high-paying job in an international conglomerate. Therefore, I’m pretty sure he’s unlikely to vent the opinions he does here, at work. He surely knows he’d be looked at sideways. I guess this forum gives him relief. Happy Endings, possibly.

            Yes … apart from their very powerful adherence to the Republican Party, or Trump himself, or some set-in-stone version of “America” that they yearn for … they are overwhelmingly hostile to the point of view of anybody else.

            I simply don’t get where all the anger comes from … but as you suggest, perhaps the anonymity of being keyboard warriors here is a release from the straitjackets of their lives – at home, at work, at church … wherever.

            Despite its flag-waving and “freedom” sloganeering, the US is in the main very constrained and conformist. Sure there are pockets of “counter culture” in big cities, and probably always have been, but the place is overwhelmingly straight and conservative. Buttoned-down collars of the mind.

            If they spent quality time in Australia and New Zealand they could actually see what free people can be like – even us staid old whities are a lot looser and groovier than they are in America.

            There actually isn’t a Podunk in Indiana – but there is one in Michigan – that’s close enough. Americans use “Will it play in Peoria?” – Richard Nixon was quite keen on it … checking how his “base” would like a policy decision.

            They also use “Does it pass the smell test?”, but Australians, being beer-addled bogans, tend to use “Does it pass the pub test?” – would the guys propping up the bar believe something a politician says?

    More on Flynn’s original 302 interview form (that the FBI is hiding).

    Seems it was last in the posession of Coupster Sally Yates before disappearing.

    “On May 2, 2020, the DOJ, using new information gathered by U.S. Attorney Jeff Jensen, declassified and released a segment of James Comey testimony that was previously hidden. Within the transcript Comey says Pientka wrote the Flynn 302 on January 24th immediately following the interview […]

    That January 24, 2017, version of the 302 is the one that has gone missing.

    People defending the FBI have even said it never existed. However, the testimony of FBI Director James Comey proves the 302 was drafted on January 24th […]

    Additionally, recent evidence from Brady material turned over to the defense by auditing attorney Jeff Jensen showed FBI lawyer Lisa Page and FBI Agent Peter Strzok rewriting, editing and shaping the 302 on February 10, 2017, more than two weeks later […]”

    Did you ever listen to Chaz’s “Buttijams” music playlist? Chaz Buttigieg says that he likes to listen to it in the shower. I’m always suspicious of blokes who talk about what they do in the shower. George W. Bush, Jr. used to paint oil paintings of himself naked in the shower, which was “Really Weird”. Americans are weird people. Chaz is an elementary school teacher turned politician. Hillary Clinton was a failed lawyer, failed housewife turned failed politician, like Chaz. America is a society that will never let go of bad ideas, like shopping malls. I like to watch the videos of rural bumfuck communities in places like rural Kansas and Oklahoma flattened by EF5 tornadoes. The reporters interview the survivors amidst the rubble, and the traumatized survivors remark: “Thank God! God finally destroyed this place.” It must be the end of the world as we know it? When I was a kid the aborted kids never survived. It seems that now they harvest the aborted kids’ fetal tissue and then re-grow them into bizarre organic politically correct life forms like Chaz Buttigieg? I wonder why the mad feminist scientists are doing this? Chaz is like something out of one of those futuristic dystopian HG Wells novels….

    • Pucker May 16, 2020 at 8:20 am #

      Chaz Buttigieg has a new book out. I thought that we can concluded in one of JHK’s podcasts that since Amazon has a stranglehold over book distribution that Amazon vacuums up all of the royalties and that writing books is, therefore, now an economic cul de sac?

      I Have Something to Tell You
      A Memoir
      By Chasten Buttigieg
      Hardcover

      About The Book
      A moving, hopeful, and refreshingly candid memoir by the husband of former Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg about growing up gay in his small Midwestern town, his relationship with Pete, and his hope for America’s future.

      Throughout the past year, teacher Chasten Glezman Buttigieg has emerged on the national stage, having left his classroom in South Bend, Indiana, to travel cross-country in support of his husband, former mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Pete’s groundbreaking presidential campaign. Through Chasten’s joyful, witty social media posts, the public gained a behind-the-scenes look at his life with Pete on the trail—moments that might have ranged from the mundane to the surprising, but that were always heartfelt.

      Chasten has overcome a multitude of obstacles to get here. In this moving, uplifting memoir, he recounts his journey to finding acceptance as a gay man. He recalls his upbringing in rural Michigan, where he knew he was different, where indeed he felt different from his father and brothers. He recounts his coming out and how he’s healed from revealing his secret to his family, friends, community, and the world. And he tells the story of meeting his boyfriend, whom he would marry and who would eventually become a major Democratic leader.

      With unflinching honesty, unflappable courage, and great warmth, Chasten Buttigieg relays his experience of growing up in America and embracing his true self, while inspiring others to do the same.

      • Pucker May 16, 2020 at 11:56 am #

        The book review says that Chaz is “unflinchingly honest”. That’ll be the day….

      “and the traumatized survivors remark: “Thank God! God finally destroyed this place.” ”

      Reminded me of John Betjeman’s famous poem…

      Slough

      Come friendly bombs and fall on Slough!
      It isn’t fit for humans now,
      There isn’t grass to graze a cow.
      Swarm over, Death!

      Come, bombs and blow to smithereens
      Those air -conditioned, bright canteens,
      Tinned fruit, tinned meat, tinned milk, tinned beans,
      Tinned minds, tinned breath.

      Mess up the mess they call a town-
      A house for ninety-seven down
      And once a week a half a crown
      For twenty years.

      And get that man with double chin
      Who’ll always cheat and always win,
      Who washes his repulsive skin
      In women’s tears:

      And smash his desk of polished oak
      And smash his hands so used to stroke
      And stop his boring dirty joke
      And make him yell.

      But spare the bald young clerks who add
      The profits of the stinking cad;
      It’s not their fault that they are mad,
      They’ve tasted Hell.

      It’s not their fault they do not know
      The birdsong from the radio,
      It’s not their fault they often go
      To Maidenhead

      And talk of sport and makes of cars
      In various bogus-Tudor bars
      And daren’t look up and see the stars
      But belch instead.

      In labour-saving homes, with care
      Their wives frizz out peroxide hair
      And dry it in synthetic air
      And paint their nails.

      Come, friendly bombs and fall on Slough
      To get it ready for the plough.
      The cabbages are coming now;
      The earth exhales.

    The science must be out-of-control?

    I read several years ago that the Americans legalized experiments to create human-animal hybrids? God only knows what experiments they’ve been up to in the lab?

    And we’ve been training all of the Chinese scientists. I like Chinese people, but I’m not sure that people appreciate that the Chinese focus on “practicality” and belief in magic, including the magic of money and science, makes the Chinese really crazy. If you incentivize them, they’ll run in any direction, even over a cliff and into a bottomless gorge.

    The Americans love this and that’s ultimately why the Americans trained all of the Chinese and helped them to build that P4 biohazard lab in Wuhan, the probable source of the Covid 19 virus.

    How would you feel if the Chinese kept coming into Australia, to the point that they demographically took over your nation, then tried to change everything to their way of doing business?

      This seems to be a pre-occupation of some … but of course it will never happen – we are an island nation and relatively isolated.

      As a former conservative prime minister said, “we will decide who comes to this country and the circumstances in which they come, and we’ll decide that applying humane equitable principles …”

      We have a ruthless long-term detention program that is cruel but effective – illegal arrivals are processed over time, and only genuine verifiable refugees are allowed to stay. It has stopped the flow of people-smuggler boats.

      I agree that your illegal immigration situation is a crazy mess – I don’t have any solutions either (and btw the wall isn’t a solution, and never was).

        The vaccine against measles very effectively prevents death from measles. Sadly a whole lot of dumbos listened to some other dumbos with a propaganda message.

        A Covid vaccine isn’t necessarily going to happen, for various reasons. It may work or it may not. I’m hoping the Oxford one will work, obviously, then I won’t have to listen to endless stuff about Bill Gates if I take it. You will be aware vaccination isn’t compulsory in this country for anything at all. Forcing people to accept any kind of medical intervention is ‘assault’ in law.

    Posted on May 16, 2020Motherhood Changed the Way I See Race
    Jane Moss, American Renaissance, April 18, 2020

    This is part of our continuing series of accounts by readers of how they shed the illusions of liberalism and became race realists.

    Like most people of my generation, I was raised to believe in “equality” above all else. The adage, “all men are created equal” always appealed to my innate sense of fairness and justice — and skin color always seemed like a silly reason to mistreat someone. I held on to these beliefs as long as I lived in the 98 percent white community I was brought up in, a place where crime was almost unheard of and everyone worked together to better the community. It was only when I started to experience the world outside of that environment that my perspective on the importance of race began to change.

    Many of you are likely familiar with the horror stories told by white teachers who work in “urban” schools — American Renaissance has published plenty of them. As one of those teachers, I can tell you it’s all true — we are the canaries in the demographic coal mine. I have witnessed every sickening example of the consequences of low IQ, affirmative action, multicultural bureaucracy, low impulse control, black culture, and victimization of white students you can imagine. My experience with all of that certainly colored — no pun intended — my awakening to the dangers whites, as a people, face. But there was another, more important, factor: Over the past 20 years I have raised the most reviled creature on the planet — a healthy white male, my son.

    It was only after he was born that I began to fully notice the relentless propaganda of the mainstream media, and how it promotes miscegenation and presents men like my son as bumbling weak fools. I saw how our people’s history is appropriated and manipulated in arts and entertainment, and how our nation’s heroes are twisted and discredited — their monuments torn down and replaced. I’ve shopped for children’s books and been unable to find one with a protagonist who was a positive example of a white male. I’ve filled out countless college and scholarship applications only to find that opportunities for white males are reduced or blocked entirely — regardless of his good grades and impressive test scores. Each one of these things, combined with my experiences at work, pushed me toward the truth about which race is truly disenfranchised and oppressed in our country. It was a realization that fully awoke the protective mothering instincts inside me.

    Then one day, I stumbled across an American Renaissance video and heard the quiet, reasonable, practical, and polite voice of Jared Taylor. He wasn’t wearing a hood. He wasn’t a skinhead or a jack-booted thug. He was a gentleman, a rational, intelligent, gentleman sharing factual information. I was intrigued and began to learn more about what race realists had to say. I was “red-pilled” in no time. Now I consciously work towards uplifting and supporting our people and our civilization in whatever way I can. Whether through financial support, reaching out a helping hand to young white men in need, purchasing books from pro-white authors, or just standing between the leftist machine and the lone white male student at work: I make the extra effort to be there. I look forward to the day when I retire and no longer have to do this in the shadows.

    JS: Yes, many women only become real human beings after they have children. Before that, it’s nothing but ideology. Real love changes them. A love greater than that of loving a man. And for others, not even this is enough. They will encourage their sons to be feminists to allow women and minorities to walk all over them. They were given a Choice, and they choose Evil. Jane Moss has rightly chosen the Good.

    • BackRowHeckler May 16, 2020 at 2:44 pm #

      And that right there is why Trump will win in 2020: white women will not stand by and watch their sons and husbands f##ked over by a miserable matriarchy and an army of Hate Whitey opportunists looking for the main chance.

        From you lips to God’s ear. But I’m not sure it will matter much. Certainly not if Trump goes along with mandated vaccination and tracking as he appears to be doing. Good/Cop Bad cop is as old as Human Civilization. Everyone normal hates Fauci/Birx but what does it matter if Trump does the same thing in the end?

          Some are insisting he is gaming the globalists here at home and abroad both with the announcement of the partial funding of WHO (are you serious right now!?) and the announcement that the military will distribute the vaccine. I don’t have the faith they do. IMO this ship is going down Trump or Biden. It deserves to really. We are going to have to do our best with what remains. It isn’t going to be comfortable or fun.

          • Janos Skorenzy May 16, 2020 at 4:26 pm #

            Yes, by their fruits shall we know them. He never mentioned Us once he got elected. And his Wall to the extent any was ever built, is a ridiculous thing that can be scaled by little kids and contraband passed thru as well. A “slatted” hybrid between a wall and a fence, having the strengths of neither. A fence with razor wire generously strewn on top might well be better.

            The Leftists mock it and us. They are correct in this. Their hatred of Trump, as bizarre and over the top as it is, shows their hatred of us. They take him as a symbol of Us. That’s incorrect, but more importantly, it’s scary considering its intensity.

            I’d stick with the Zionists but the whole thing seems passe now. The whole World fell for this Campaign. They’re going for it and no one is stopping them – not even the Zionists.

            Akmo is as betrayed as I am. And Russians have been betrayed by Putin. National Socialist India – no better. That’s disappointing indeed. Catholics, Protestants, and even Jews – we may find ourselves worshiping in the same Catacomb Churches.

        Biden is an appalling choice for the Dems, but he might do better than the incumbent – despite all the dirty tricks that will be played.

        And I agree that Biden is too old to be trying this – and so is Trump.

    “This Friday would be a truly ripe moment for some actual indictments to come down against some of the perps of RussiaGate and its associated misdeeds.” Here we go again. Indictments are coming, the Democrats are going down, it’s about to happen. . ..give me a freaking break. People breathlessly said the exact same thing last week, last month, last year, the year before that, and the year before that. No matter who wins in November, in 2021 people will say the exact same thing yet AGAIN. Indictments are coming, real soon, Hiillary, Comey, All the Democrats are Going to Jail! It is nothing but an off-repeated lie. Nothing Ever Happens, Too Big to Jail, etc.

    • SoftStarLight May 16, 2020 at 2:56 pm #

      The deeper question is why and what sustains it. Maybe? Is it a condition to accept or is it an unacceptable condition. Many people who appear to be friends are really foes. It was set up that way?

    • Nightowl May 16, 2020 at 4:13 pm #

      Lots of things have happened. If you have been paying attention.

      The idea that a group of career government criminals are just going to be rounded up and sent to gitmo over the course of a year or so is absurd.

      Trump needs a decent amount of public support, the cases have to be airtight, and information networks in touch with the public must be strong to counter McMedia propaganda. The people must feel they have figured a good part of the crimes in question themselves — long before you frogmarch anyone out.

      Trump has begun publically stating that Obama is the head of the snake. This is a huge development.

      Perhaps it is my background in poli-sci and media, but I am astounded when I read shit like this.

      • Cargill May 16, 2020 at 6:34 pm #

        Trump has begun publically stating that Obama is the head of the snake. This is a huge development.

        I disagree strongly … Trump stating anything isn’t “a huge development” – he’s done it a thousand times and it’s come to nothing much … it’s just more lies, more distraction, more red meat for the base.

        If you knew anything about pol-sci and the media you would recognise that there is an incumbent president with very flaky poll numbers under six months out, and he has a cratered economy.

        He’s in trouble, and they’ve cooked up “Obamagate” plus the Flynn plea reversal … it’s legal thuggery in the months prior to November – far worst than anything the Democrats have tried.

        He hasn’t gained respect (or better polling) out of the pandemic, so he’s trying a different tactic.

        And the question remains: what is the crime?

        And I do have to agree (at least partially) with the cry above – we’ve heard “indictments are coming” against x, y, and z for a lot of years now. If there were anything there, Barr and the DOJ would be all over it by now. They have presidential backing and almost limitless resources.

        • SoftStarLight May 16, 2020 at 6:44 pm #

          But the entire bureaucracy is totally against anything that could jeapordize the current setup. Ditto with a majority of Congress and the judiciary. There are two different sets of laws and rules. So despite my disappointment I disagree with you that Barr has limitless resources. Most of the professional bureaucrats in the DOJ are probably working against Barr. No Elites will be touched if they can help it.

          • Cargill May 16, 2020 at 11:24 pm #

            I sort of agree with you – that politicians, senior bureaucrats, and much of the judiciary are totally committed to maintaining the “system” as they see it (governance as “business as usual”) – I guess it’s always been like that.

            There again – maintaining stability (even if it totally benefits the elites who control all the wealth) against a rogue administration is not an ignoble objective. Trump promised to drain the swamp but he failed – because of his ineptitude and his lust for unfettered power.

            When the Global FInancial Crisis hit in 2008-2009, the elite apparatus – Treasury, Federal Reserve, Wall Street, and all regulatory agencies – worked extremely hard to maintain a corrupt and haemorrhaging system … and it cost trillions in taxpayer money. WHy have power if you don’t use it, eh?

          • Nightowl May 17, 2020 at 4:50 am #

            SSL, why do you think the “entire” bureaucracy is against anything that would jeopardize the current setup?

            There is no evidence for this. A good chunk of it may be, but there is an equally large chunk that is not ok with it. Were things as you described, Trump would have never even made it to office.

            The events of the past month or so are unprecedented. What part of “We caught them!” did you miss?

            There is nothing to worry about.

    The Four Olds were: Old Customs, Old Culture, Old Habits, and Old Ideas. The campaign to destroy the Four Olds began in Beijing on August 19, 1966, shortly after the launch of the Cultural Revolution.

    Wikipedia

    To the Four Olds of Maoism, Political Correctness (our Communism) adds a fifth: Old Races – namely Whites (right now at least). Thus young Blacks are often heard railing against “old White People”. One murder trial descended into chaos at the sentencing when a Black girl exclaimed in protest over the harshness of her brother’s sentence, “All this for just an old White person?”. The White relatives of the deceased attacked the Black contingent in a justifiable rage.

    • SoftStarLight May 16, 2020 at 3:08 pm #

      Not too much rage and raucous about the elderly white couple assassinated in the veterans cemetery by that young black man avenging the jogger’s fate. White lives don’t matter. Remember how plain and awful they say vanilla is. It’s ok for them to hate. It’s ok for them to live. The quicker their steady state can be disrupted the better. This all exists because it is allowed to and has been allowed.

        ****************

        You’re right, that story has been buried for some reason?

        But at least he was black.

        A proper white shooter would have donned a police uniform and driven a fake police car on a multi state shooting spree for 12 hours with a double digit body count.

        • SoftStarLight May 16, 2020 at 6:33 pm #

          That’s not true. I looked for an example and a Hispanic guy popped up. Plus most of the victims of this proper white shooter would probably be white. So why do you think the story has been buried? Wasn’t violent enough for the media’s tastes?

          • thwack May 16, 2020 at 7:20 pm #

            “So why do you think the story has been buried?”

            ***********

            are you talking about the black guy killing the elderly couple in the cemetery?

            Hmmm?

            Lets see, how can I say this diplomatically?

            ah fuck it;

            a random racial revenge killing requires a greater level of foresight and malice thats generally absent in the tiny negro mind.

            And at the same time, white people have greater knowledge of how black people have been harmed and abused under the system of white supremacy they all benefit from, whether they practice it or not.

            So the idea that a black guy understood this concept and acted on it is so disturbing, that our “handlers” made the executive decision to bury it and hope it goes away.

            I would say black people only detect a quarter of the racist attacks they experience; because the system of racism white supremacy is under constant refinement, and at the same time OUR “handlers” encourage us to think of ourselves as Kangz and Quangz who “overcame”…

        It isn’t because it was allowed. It’s worse than that. It is encouraged. And not only encouraged, but taught, as in propaganda, as in false reporting. Most whites I know believe it, even though it is false and slander, and so I am sure most blacks believe it too.

        They want a race war. They want destabilization. This really is Biblical – they are the destroyers of the world. See Revelations 11:18.

        • SoftStarLight May 17, 2020 at 12:53 pm #

    • BackRowHeckler May 16, 2020 at 3:58 pm #

      I’ve been holding off on this because not all information is in. A few nights ago a family wiped out in a home invasion in Windsor, 3 towns north of here. All we know so far is two women, an 85 yo mother and her 55 yo daughter, murdered, and the daughters husband in a coma. We are not being told how they died. They were a solid family who owned an optometrist office in town and funded many events and organizations like little league and 4H.

      Two arrests have been made, 17 yo ‘Youts’. The police, the media, and town administrators have pretty much been mum on the details, which makes me suspicious. You can’t find out anything about it. CNN is not here, and pretty sure these 3 old people were ‘unarmed’. Windsor is the oldest town in the state c1633, but is described now as a ‘town in transition’. Its not hard to figure out what that means. AP isn’t looking into it as far as I know. The Hartford newspaper is worthless in matters such as this and will expend more energy obfuscating what happened rather than reporting what the details are. I’ve been mentioning the phenomena of ‘Youts’ from the inner cities raiding suburban towns in early morning stealing cars, and the theory is that these two Youts were confronted stealing cars and decided to eliminate witnesses. That’s where it stands right now, and at some point the media will not be able to bury the story any longer. Don’t expect to see anything about it on David Muir’s ABC evening news.

        It seems most of the countries in the world are more or less deliberately killing the elderly in nursing homes. The UK is.

        • GreenAlba May 17, 2020 at 5:33 am #

          More or less deliberately’ is an interesting phrase. One that covers the weasel-worded user from defending it, perhaps.

          The UK has shown utter incompetence in relation to nursing homes (although it is not alone in this). Some of this related to patients being discharged to care homes without being tested. These were not Covid patients, but people – contrary to your belief system – who were in hospital for non-Covid reasons. Because they were not Covid patients, they were not tested, which was dumb. The Covid hospital patients had to test negative twice before being released to care homes.

          But the original incompetence is one in which the whole of society was complicit, which possibly accounts for why people so desperately want to find a more focused target. And that is because care home staff are chronically underpaid (and chronically undervalued) and mostly do not benefit from sick pay. Hence many will go to work even when they have Covid symptoms because bills have to be paid.

          And on top of that many are peripatetic and work at several care homes within the same time period. Which is much the same as my husband going to three different care homes to see patients, with inadequate PPE. Not sure what your solution is to that, other than a general raising of competence levels in the people responsible for maintaining stockpiles of PPE.

          Oh, did I mention that function was subcontracted to a private company? And that company belongs to an American healthcare company? You couldn’t make this stuff up. That’s what happens when you progressively hand over your national healthcare system, in dribs and drabs, to a private sector that only cares about pounds. Sorry, dollars.

          • GreenAlba May 17, 2020 at 5:45 am #

            Incidentally, just how do we guarantee people in hospital for non-Covid reasons are definitely testing negative when they leave? Given it takes time to get the results of the test, any person could contract Covid from a member of the hospital staff immediately after being tested.

            I thought about this when I heard my brother was tested for Covid (because Covid can cause myocarditis). He tested negative and was moved to a non-Covid intensive care unit. But who’s to say he didn’t contract Covid between being tested and being moved out of the ‘suspected Covid’ section?

            There just isn’t any 100% foolproof way of ensuring anything much with this virus.

          • GreenAlba May 17, 2020 at 5:47 am #

            For clarity, there were three intensive-care sections: definitely Covid, possibly Covid, and non-Covid. Not sure how much else you can do.

      I’ve never heard events 1918-1920 called The Wilson Pandemic. Is that something new LB?

Its located in a run down strip mall that must have been built with such high hopes in 1964. You see Harleys parked out front all hours of the day and night. There is prominent sign out front ‘No Colors’, and somebody with not too much artistic ability painted a picture on plywood canvas of a biker pulling a wheelie — that’s Poppa Wheelie!

      So, today I suddenly became aware that China has had fewer than 5000 deaths. Say what? With 1.4 billion people, in the worst months of winter. Most of China was only locked down about 2 weeks, although Wuhan much longer.The European countries with about 1/5th the US population have had about 1/5th the number of deaths. Yet somehow China has 4400 deaths to Italy’s and UK’s, both with over 30 thousand.

    The American cultural trait of Virtue Signaling is a bit weird. Americans seems to seize upon opportunities to Virtue Signal, which requires simplistic, black-and-white narratives, such as the recent Ahmaud Abrey case. They tried to, in Procrustean fashion, make the narrative a case of white blokes out hunting a black bloke who was just jogging. It appears like the owner of the construction site may have called the cops when the automatic camera at the construction site alerted the owner of the trespasser on the property. The Cops then told the owner to call the rednecks with the shotgun who lived 2 doors down, which he did and then the rednecks went out looking for Ahmaud at the direction of the cops. One redneck was former “law enforcement.” Total Clusterfuck. Apparently, the owner of the construction site had had fishing stuff stolen from the site on previous occasions as well as multiple previous breakings and enterings. The nuance of the case was quickly drowned out as people stampeded to Virtue Signal. Weird…. They’re all crazy….

    • BackRowHeckler May 17, 2020 at 9:35 am #

      Apparently, when a case does not fit the narrative, and cannot be virtue signalled, it is simply ignored, like what’s happening with the murders in Windsor right now. Altho it was revealed that all 3 victims were stabbed “with sharp objects.”

    The link is to a PDF file of the letter Brunswick District Attorney George E. Barnhill wrote to the Glynn county police department explaining why his office would not charge Gregory and Travis McMichael in the shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery.

    Its only 3 pages; but it does make a strong case for why the McMichaels were not initially charged and arrested.

    Georgia is an “open carry” state, so it is entirely legal to stand in the street with your shot gun.

    What is NOT legal is to deliberately attempt to take a legally owned firearm from another person, through the use of force/violence; and that is what Arbery attempted to do, and resulted in his being shot to death.

    So no, Ahmaud Artery was not killed because he was jogging, or trespassing at a house under construction…

    He was killed because he tried to steal a mans shot gun.

    Finally, if you attack a police officer and attempt to take his gun; brace yourself for some lead poisoning because he’s gonna shoot you dead, and will not be charged with any crime.

        My younger brother came down with Covid; he had meningitis as a kid at the Air Force base where we lived, never really recovered, been in an out of assisted living facilities his whole life. We thought this would finish him off, but he appears to be recovering, talked to him this morning by phone, he said for him it was like having a really bad cold.

            Apparently meningitis wasn’t uncommon on military bases in that era. Do you have any insight on that, Q?

        Maybe covid-19 isn’t even real. Maybe doctors have been told to classify any coronavirus related illness to covid-19. Supposedly humans and all other mammals have coronaviruses or cold viruses all the time in their bodies.

            Piffle.

            Your fear-porn proclivities are just downright embarrassing – the bigger danger is that everything just rushes right back to what is was always like.

            Here in Australia the news is full of “back to living” stories as restrictions relax … pubs, clubs, cafes, markets, beaches, schools, and much else.

            There is a strong sense of now being “post-virus” and it’s back to normal. There is no “new normal” threatening to enslave you.

            Even those who hate the economic impact of lockdowns must recognise that without immunity, treatment, and vaccine, that physical separation and isolation are the only weapons available to reduce spread.

            And don’t rely on the “let it rip” strategy – a new study from Spanish health authorities show that, despite the high case numbers and horrific death toll, only 5% of the population have antibodies (and it’s only about 12% even in Hadrid – the epicentre).

            Herd immunity might be totally unattainable (certainly at acceptable cost), and the true death rate might be quite high.

    An interesting video. I’m biased I’m in it.

    Ugo Bardi, George Mobus, Monsta666, Surly1, RE and K-Dog.

    Ugo is in Italy, Monsta666 is in London. George and I are twenty miles apart. Surley1 is in Virginia and RE is up by Anchorage. I was last in the que and technical problems made for issues getting going. A clusterfuck of technology. I don’t say anything until thirty minutes in but that is fine because the rest is a good listen.

    NY Post

    Big Tech companies are aggressively tamping down on COVID-19 “misinformation” — opinions and ideas contrary to official pronouncements.

    Dr. Knut M. Wittkowski, former head of biostatistics, epidemiology and research design at Rockefeller University, says YouTube removed a video of him talking about the virus which had racked up more than 1.3 million views.

    Wittkowski, 65, is a ferocious critic of the nation’s current steps to fight the coronavirus. He has derided social distancing, saying it only prolongs the virus’ existence and has attacked the current lockdown as mostly unnecessary.

    Wittkowski, who holds two doctorates in computer science and medical biometry, believes the coronavirus should be allowed to achieve “herd immunity,” and that short of a vaccine the pandemic will only end after it has sufficiently spread through the population.

    “With all respiratory diseases, the only thing that stops the disease is herd immunity. About 80% of the people need to have had contact with the virus, and the majority of them won’t even have recognized that they were infected,” he says in the now-deleted video.

    “I was just explaining what we had,” Wittkowski told The Post of the video, saying he had no idea why it was removed. The footage was produced by the British film company Journeyman Pictures.

    “They don’t tell you. They just say it violates our community standards. There’s no explanation for what those standards are or what standards it violated.”

    In articles and interviews across the web, he has likened COVID-19 to a “bad flu.” That likely made him a target for YouTube, which said in April it would be “removing information that is problematic” about the pandemic.

    “Anything that goes against [World Health Organization] recommendations would be a violation of our policy and so removal is another really important part of our policy,” CEO Susan Wojcicki told CNN.

    Anglin: Wittkowski’s argument is a minority opinion among his colleagues, but still well within mainstream thought and currently is the basis for Sweden’s non-lockdown approach to the pandemic.

    The embattled WHO, however, is not a fan, with the group’s executive director of health emergencies, Mike Ryan, this week calling it “a really dangerous, dangerous calculation.”

    Mike Ryan the week before that praised Sweden for their handling of the virus, calling them a model.

    Sweden is following the plan that Wittkowski has encouraged to develop herd immunity, and Sweden is going to be fine. It isn’t required to take a person like Mike Ryan seriously, because he’s a lunatic.

    As far as Wittkowski’s argument belonging to a minority – I’d love to see the data on that. Because no one has seen that data. Every single epidemiologist who I’ve been able to find who does not work for the government is extremely critical of this lockdown. In fact, I’m not aware of a scientific expert in any of the related fields who does not work for the government who supports it, and some of the people who do work for the government are calling much of this scheme a hoax.

    Here’s a video of Dr. Wittkowski that’s still online, if you want to get an idea of the kind of things he’s saying.

    JS: “Digital Reality” (thoroughly alterable) is really making big strides now. Even comments of that arch Karen, Dr Birx, are being edited to exclude her explanation of how liberally they are labeling covid, covid.

    If she was your teacher or principle and you struck back at a bully who was tormenting you, you know that you would get no sympathy from her. Fighting is bad! would be all that she would say. And if that bully was Black, you’d be sunk. Her kind are a curse and the blight of our civilization.

    Ditto Youtube’s Wojicki in a similar way. No doubt she believes In “SCIENCE” but she wouldn’t know the real thing to save her life. She does know what side her bread is buttered on though, and she will always keep on that sunny side of street – humanity be damned.

      That is ridiculous … it is super-intelligent, emotionally stable and dedicated scientific types that have kept your sorry little flabby ass safe, secure, and well-fed for the last 40-50 years.

      Do you have any idea where anything in our complex world comes from? Do you know how disease is fought, why food is safe, why planes don’t crash, why smartphones talk to each other? There are thousands of people like Dr Birx making it happen.

      You live in a fact-free fantasy. You’ve moved on from Daniel Boone shooting a deer to feed the family.

      Why do all you alt-right nut-job types want to tear down everything in America? I’ve never been on a forum with such a concentration of self-destructive, self-haters … and people who hate everything about their own country … amazing stuff.

      Big Tech companies are aggressively tamping down on COVID-19 “misinformation” — opinions and ideas contrary to official pronouncements.

      I actually agree with the sentiment of this post … I’m a fierce advocate of free speech, as long as it’s genuinely free … in other words the case against has to have as much access to ‘air-time’ as the original speaker (or propagandist). I intensely dislike free speech being a weapon of power, however – where the powerful block alternative views (ie, Murdoch).

      So happy-clapping Christians can evangelise all they want, but it is really hypocritical of them to demand freedom from criticism, and to try to make it ‘offensive’ to ridicule them.

      But in this case if this dude from Rockefeller University wants to put the “just a bad flu / let her rip” argument, then so what? Let them do it, and then tear them to shreds with facts and the science … that’s the better way.

      BTW Sweden has been an “unmitigated” (pardon the pun) disaster … did they think they were just going to stroll casually to herd immunity on the sun-filled uplands?

      Sweden – deaths per million 365
      Australia deaths per million 3.85

      Sort of says it all, eh.

        ****************

        Sorry Barf hill, but all roads lead to Sweden. You can stall coming out of your house; but sooner or later you will be forced to become a Swede.

        No amount of accounting tricks and slick misdirection can save you from the fact that at some point, you will be forced to engage in the very same behavior the Swedes have engaged in from the beginning.

        Think about it?

        How long to you think young healthy people will put their lives on hold in order in order for boomers to collect a few more pension, SS checks?

        * we had to destroy the village in order to save it*

        There are only two ways out of this nightmare; you can take the window, or you can take the steps.

        Either way your black ass will be forced out of the house (where you and you big lips can lift weights and convert to Islam…)

        The U.S body count is nothing more than a reflection of our high standard of LIVING, where you can live well into your 80s and 90s with multiple co morbidities…

        In many parts of the world you only live long enough to reproduce; and then you die.

        The truth is black and ugly, thats why nobody wants it (until its all they have left)

        It says Sweden is a wee bit colder and less prone to Uv intrusion.
        Everyone knows colds flus and this virus does less well at transmission when its hot and the sun is strongest.

    What happened? These two fine peoples seemed to have been getting along so well together. Both were interested in enslaving Whites so why couldn’t they work together on that important project? Did the Chinese object to being next on the chopping block perhaps? Or did the Jews realize that they these people would never accept being 2nd class in any context. In other words, did their Elite refused to betray their own People and Nation for personal gain?

    This Flynn issue at the centre of the confabulated Obamagate brouhaha…

    The DOJ has become a Trumpian ‘creature’ viz former DOJ lawyer Jonathan Kravis on Barr’s hijacking of the rule of law.

    “…if the President demands, we will throw you under the bus”

    If, like me, you find the bewildering array of links to partisan tweets getting a little too much and NOT contributing to your understanding in any useful way, watch this analysis. It starts way, way back (2015 in fact) and goes way way deep in the various aspects & elements of the WHOLE case.

    It’s not a grandstanding partisan hit-piece like all the self-preening & self-congratulatory distractions posted by those who’ve fallen into the CT rabbit hole.

    HigIQwl, I HOPE you watch it and critique it, but I’m guessing you’ll be too busy combing through the documents Ms. Powell has assigned to you to assess (after all, there are tens of thousands of them…and this is your shot at a Cabinet Post next year!)

      Don Jr is a slimeball … but you get that from rich young brats who never have to work … and it’s often the case that the third generation is the worst. Donald Sr worked hard, trying to be as good as daddy … and the next gen says “Fuck work – where’s the money, the chicks, and the drugs?”.

      It’ll be an ugly dirty campaign … Trump is absolutely shit-scared of losing. But Joe doesn’t look like a winner to me … he will only get there by default (if he does) because Trump has been so bad. Surely the Dems could do better!
