Happenings Await

“Even Americans who have no particular interest in freedom and independence in democracies worldwide, should be satisfied that we’re getting our money’s worth on our Ukraine investment.” — Sen. Richard Blumenthal

     The Labor Day weekend looms like a gateway into an autumn hell-scape of political psychodrama, so enjoy those last clam rolls of the season before the zeitgeist darkens and events pound the shore like so many waves of  hurricane surf. Further inland, where the Swamp lies burbling and skreeking, unseen hands work overtime to falsify reality in a leaderless nation. Everybody feels the unbearable tension of things as yet unhappened.

     “Joe Biden” has LARPed his way to the final act of his performance. The evidence of his high crimes, and the covering-up of those high crimes by our lawless law officialdom, is piled high enough to eject him into the swales of infamy. We know exactly how the Ukraine grift went down — the documentation is stark and florid — as is the rest of the family’s bribery operations in other lands not necessarily friendly to our own land. So, add treason to bribery and there you have the complete kit of perfidious treachery against the nation.

     “Joe Biden” will be removed most likely by his own party before an impeachment inquiry can be launched in Congress. Not even The New York Times and CNN would be able to ignore the horrific spectacle and the party’s own minions might be shamed into learning how they were hosed for so many years. The unseen hands that jammed “JB” into the White House can then figure out what to do about the hapless Kamala Harris while Congress turns its attention to impeaching Merrick Garland, Christopher Wray, Alejandro Mayorkas, and Xavier Becerra. At least that’s how it might work if the USA was a sane polity.

      Otherwise, the people of this land will have to choose between being rolled-over by a globalist coup or find other routes of resistance. One would be for the governors of several so-called Red states to end mail-in voting, get rid of computerized ballot-counting machines, bring back paper ballots, and declare that all voting and hand ballot-counting take place on one election day. Don’t believe those who say it can’t be done. If it’s not done, we’ll never see anything close to an un-rigged election in this country ever again.

     In what might be one of his last official acts, “Joe Biden” announced last week that Americans would be “encouraged” to get a new-and-improved mRNA vaccine booster against the new Covid virus strain EG.5 “Eris” (named after the Greek goddess of strife and discord). The “president” said he asked Congress for funding “for a new vaccine that is necessary, that works…. It will likely be recommended that everybody get it no matter whether they’ve gotten it before or not.”

     Say, what…? Did the earlier vaccines not work, Joe? Most assuredly they did not. The shots injured, disabled, and killed a great many people, and it staggers the rational mind that the CDC is still pushing these shots. You might conclude that they’re pretending this didn’t happen to evade responsibility. After all, what would be the consequences if these officials admitted that all the previous Covid vaccines were ineffective and harmful? And what would be the reaction of the 81.3 percent of the population who got at least one dose of the previous vaccines and the 65.6 percent who are “fully vaccinated” with two or more shots? (Note, statistics from the CDC.)

     I’ll tell you what would happen: the CDC officials and a great many other persons on the public payroll would be in court on criminal charges. And doctors and hospitals would be subject to so many lawsuits they would never again have time to actually practice medicine, while millions of people with damaged immune systems and wrecked organs take flight like so many black swans flapping into the setting sun of their own prematurely attenuated lives. If you care to be astounded, listen to this talk that Dr. Peter McCullough gave to an audience in New Hampshire a few days ago, calling out all the principals who devised the Covid-19 fiasco by name: Ralph Baric, Anthony Fauci, Peter Daszak, and Francis Collins, and then describing exactly how the dastardly act and the cover-up went down.

    Speaking of happenings this autumn, expect the war in Ukraine to come to an end. The news media might omit to inform you about this, but it awaits. Russia will not trumpet its victory, so as to avoid inflaming America’s crazed neo-cons. Rather it will just quietly take charge of its successfully neutralized neighbor, make provision for some sort of administration over what remains of the rump state — in a way that affords Russia a sense of permanent security — at the same time that Russia commences new negotiations separately with several European nations to reestablish realistic relations.

     The US will be delicately hung out to dry on this. Short of resorting to nuclear World War Three, there is nothing the US can do about it — except for the Democratic Party to blame the whole sorry thing on “Joe Biden” as he is forced to resign from office pending that aforesaid impeachment threat. No other explanation for the end of our Ukraine project will be required. The party of chaos will flounder a while in the very chaos that it induced, trying laughably to switch out Kamala Harris for Gavin Newsom — or some other ploy to stay in business. But the party will be so badly damaged by then that it will have no other option except to let Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., in to drive out the remaining demons and save the venerable old org from suicide.

     If you think that these various momentous happenings won’t affect the financial markets and the banking system in the coming season, prepare to be amazed. This is how America truly gets to feel the pain, and this might be how the pitchforks finally come out for the people who wrecked our country.

    Cat out of the bag much? Not only is he describing BlackRock’s Mr Fink’s public pronouncement of there being too much democracy and how it impedes business, he just described the rest of the Wholesale Murder Machine itself. The gall. The smug, dead-eyed sociopathic gall.

        This wise bit of advice could work for JB but I doubt there’s anyone in the DNC with the foresight, much less courage, to step up and give him the Talk. They’re as spineless as the LPC “Trudeau needs to be told what he clearly doesn’t understand, that his sunny days have sunset, that his dismal poll numbers will not suddenly rebound and that there’s a low probability he will win re-election despite facing a hard-to-like opponent in Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre.” Don Martin CTV News

            I was being flippant and, being Irish, I’m more sensitive to and embarrassed by the actions of American Irish than perhaps, I should be. On the other hand, it was predominantly Irish Catholic priests who marched hand-in-hand with the Civil Rights agitators in the 50’s and 60’s and Irish politicians have, on average, been much worse than Italian, Polish, etc. politicians. I don’t regard any non-European, non-Christian, as American.

Wow, that’s a lot of Jews who openly oppose the teachings of YHWH, and the surface hasn’t been scratched. Then again, ancient Israel was destroyed in no small measure by the actions of Jews who hated God and undermined the society’s stability for their own benefit, much like the listed people do.

            Most of that ancient history is complete rubbish. They’ve been digging over there for that fabulous kingdom for decades and just can’t seem to find it. The old testament is just a bunch of borrowed tales from other civilizations and grafted onto the “chosenites”.

        You don’t have to worry about that, Uncle Bob:

        I just wrote in the comment section of the previous article that if the rest of the animal world could laugh, at least in a way humans understood as such, humans would likely be the laughing-stock of the animal world.

        It would probably be a bitter, ironic, sarcastic laugh, though.

            On The Wrong End Of The Butt Of The Joke

            They all could have the last laugh you know.

            (With ‘you know’ being a ‘literary device’ not to be confused with a suggestion that I think I know what you know.)

            JHK ‘rants’ through his sociomaterial technology, bi-weekly, as we read it through the same technology, that becomes, and/or could become, an end in itself, both in that meaning, as well as in terms of a/the law of diminishing returns, where the sociomaterial technologies– which include State government by the way– become too expensive to maintain.

            Hence, decline and maybe collapse.

            That’s part of the gag the fish would be bitterly laughing at and/or crying or ranting about if they got the ‘joke’ on everyone.

            Of course they get it, but it’s on the wrong end of the butt of the joke, if or until the tables turn.

        • Uncle Bob September 1, 2023 at 9:39 pm #

    • Jarek September 1, 2023 at 1:00 pm #

      Old German proverb: He who chooses has trouble. Studies show that if people have more than three choices, they end up unhappy, worrying that they chose the wrong one. In terms of politics, they almost surely did.

      The Founders hated Democracy, knowing the people weren’t really capable of informed choice for the most part. The franchise must be limited to a select group – the Qualified.

      That we are ruled by the Vermin you speak of is evidence of the people’s incapacity.

        It is amazing how dumb, servile, and sycophantic doctors really are. My wife has two cousins who are young doctors, in their 30’s. They are constantly on her and the rest of her family to get vaxxxxxxed up. She laughs at them. They know not to try it with me. They simply parrot whatever appears in the NE Journal of Medicine or some other Big Pharma pub.

        • Cankerpuss September 1, 2023 at 10:50 am #

          I have not had a single covid vaccine. I have not had covid. I will never know if I have had covid. I will not get tested. I’m not going to be like the idiots who get the sniffles and then run off and jam a 6 inch cotton swab up their nose to see if they “got it.” Good God. Whatever happened to “I got a cold” and letting it run its course. What a worthless bunch of limp wristed slack brained losers our people have become.

          I will not play their games. They can go f— themselves with their vaccine needles and cotton swabs.

            Had Covid, but not any shots, as my research showed they were deadly, which I informed my friends and family about. Sadly, too many drank the coolaid and took them. As for China/cartel Joe and his threat to give the shots to everyone, same answer as I gave in 2020. Pitchforks are fine, but upgrades are in order.

            Covid is the sacred disease now – like AIDS used to be. People want to get it so they can talk about it and feel part of the club.

            I am the purest of purebloods. I was required to be tested for Covidiocy before I could have cataract surgery. No Covid was found. All quiet on the Covid front.

          • Anthea September 1, 2023 at 11:35 pm #

            I just had cataract surgery on Wednesday (day-before-yesterday). It did not go well. This was because my pupils won’t dilate very much, which is common among people with Scandanavian heritage. The eye surgeon spent about an hour digging at my eyeball trying to remove the cataract through an opening that was too small, without success–and with inadequate anasthesia. So he stopped the surgery and referred me to a specialist for a second surgery the next day. When a cataract can’t be removed through the dilated pupil, the procedure is to remove it from the back of the eye, by making incisions back there. This surgery went well, and I went in for the post-op exam this morning. Everything looks fine.

            In about a month–after the eye is healed–I will have to go in for yet another surgery to put in a replacement lens. There’s no lens in that eye at all.

            I understand that these complications are relatively rare, but it’s been kind of an ordeal. Cataract surgery normally takes about ten minutes of actual surgery, so you might be in the operating room for 15-20 minutes. It’s a regular assembly line. Patients are lined up in the rooms where they prep you for surgery, and they get wheeled in and wheeled out of the OR very quickly, and then they walk out the door. So I don’t mean to alarm anyone who needs cataract surgery. As one of my friends put it, “I didn’t know that could even happen.”

            I know this is off-topic. But since you mentioned cataract surgery….

            Just venting.

          • SteveK9 September 2, 2023 at 9:26 am #

            No vaccine. Probably had Covid a couple of times, but not sure, because I also never had a ‘test’. What would be the point of that?

            Anthea: Get well, soon! And egads, you have me worried, now. I have the beginnings of cataracts while simultaneously being of Scandinavian heritage, and no, my eyes do not dilate well, at all. Nor do they see very well in bright conditions, despite the tight pupils.

          • Anthea September 3, 2023 at 11:49 am #

            @ megabeth:

            I had cataract surgery in the other eye about ten years ago, and that surgery went okay–except that the surgery took about 45 minutes, when normally it would take about 10 minutes. I had an uneventful recovery, except that I had to wear dark glasses for almost a year. Most people have no issues with bright lights after a week or two. Even my computer screen seemed blindingly bright, so I wore those very dark glasses to look at the computer.

            I really enjoyed the anasthetic they gave me with the first surgery. I spent a good part of the surgery running through the rain with friends, in 1975. For the recent surgery, I asked the anasthesiologist about giving me some more of that. She said, “That sounds like ketamine,” but she didn’t give me that.

            Hippocratic seems too close to hypocritical which, as such, may have a greater risk for subconsciously bleeding too easily into the former for some pseudo-medical careerists.

        • C.O.Jones September 1, 2023 at 10:57 am #

          I can think of some other adjectives that apply to doctors, RD3.

          Egomaniacal is one that springs to mind. My cardiologist refused to see me when I refused to wear a mask. He launched into a diatribe about how effective masks are and how amazing the technology in the death shot was and if I only understood technology, I would change my mind. Not bragging but my GPA for my degree in computer science was 4.0 and this egotistical SOB is telling me about technology. I worked on some of the very software he uses. The man is a dope, brainwashed into thinking he’s smarter than the rest of the world.

          In an effort to get me out of the hospital bed and “up and moving” I was being walked around a hospital floor by a very attractive nurse one time when a doctor approached her and basically chewed her out for some minor thing. The nurse stood there and took it and after the doctor stormed off in a huff, she said “What’s the difference between God and a surgeon?” I smiled and shrugged. “God doesn’t think he’s a surgeon.”

          I have zero confidence in any member of the medical profession.They are co-opted, corrupt, arrogant and greedy.

          Q: What do you call the person who finished at the very bottom of their class in medical school?

            They used to be called Pill Pushers, but they have upped their game.

            Although my sister sent me a copy of the shots we got as children, yesterday.
            My mother wrote it all down, and my sister is cleaning a room and found it.

            We got THREE smallpox shots, apiece! WTF? Smallpox was wiped out in the US by the time we came along.

            And we each got 6 polio vaccines, and I got a tetanus every two years.

            So they were pushing shots back then, also. They just didn’t have as many.

            Dr. McCullough said that he got a lot as a child also, but the kids today get around 70.

            I think the confusion stems from the fact that surgeons wear masks at work.

            That leads people to think of mask efficacy as a medical issue, and doctors are trained in medicine.

            Whether masks work or not isn’t about disease, it is physics.

            You only need perhaps a 9th-grade level physics education to understand that.

            Very early on in this plandemic I researche

          • Islander September 1, 2023 at 7:32 pm #

            They definitely were giving smallpox vaccinations in the 1940s. In fact, the word “vaccination” as far as I knew referred only to these specific vaccinations.

            They were more like variolation—a series of pricks on the skin to introduce the vaccine. Most men had them on their outside upper arms, where these scars were perfectly visible.

            Later, children got them and carried the pinprock scars on the outside upper thigh. Mine is still visible, on my left leg. I don’t know how soon after my birth I was given the vaccination. It might have been later.

            httpX://www.healthline.com/health/smallpox-vaccine-scar

            That was it for “vaccinations” until the polio vaccine came along. I have no recollection of anyone referring to these shots (later the oral vaccine) as “vaccinations.” They were just called “polio shots.”

            The obsession with vaccinations” shtick to me seems like a relatively recent phenomenon.

            The number of vaccinations given to infants is shocking.

            I speculate that many of those born in the early baby boom years will end up living longer than later-born who were heavily vaccinated as infants.

            Nurses are paid to take ORDERS from…..doctors!

            I know. I practiced nursing for over 40 years!

            Once in a while a surgeon would be concerned about something he couldn’t figure out. One had a post-op plastic surgery patient who had intractable hiccups for two days and nights.

            Finally he asked me what I thought. (Gasp!)

            I said, “Let’s give him 50 mg. of Thorazine. I have seen that work.” So we did.

            When I left my evening shift the patient was out like a light and the next day he woke up sans hiccups.

            This surgeon called me that afternoon and thanked me.

            Well, the screen suddenly flashed and the incomplete sentence “Very early on in this plandemic I researche” landed.

            So ,Very early on in this plandemic I researched masks.

            Apparently they have a 100+ year history in the OR. There is a paucity of studies, thus they remain a question mark.

            Here’s a few results:

            I’ll round the numbers for this one:
            Day on, day off, study to investigate impact on post-op illness, 1500 (round #) enrolled in each group.

            Result 3% in one group and 4% in the other group got post-op illness. Statistically insignificant.

            Another studied air quality after scrubbing the OR, mask always required. They found no matter how ‘sterile’ the OR, was, as soon as those double doors open to bring in the patient, all the stuff in the hallway air sweeps right in along with the patient. Hardy a sterile OR.

            N95: should be used short term, and wearer needs to be FIT tested. Change mask frequently, like every couple of hours.

            I had a whole list of links, got tired of doing it because the result was aways reinforced: there is no clear evidence of stopping microscopic material with masks designed for use in healthcare settings.

            The cloth designer masks? Not going to bother going there.

            So, now I and many others are being confronted with ‘the masks are back’ stories, stories based in fact by first-person reports. The fiction is getting a tune-up and a replay is in progress.

          My oldest son, 32, was to get married two Januaries ago admist covid. Myself, my wife and my youngest son never got the jabs but (my daughter in law’s family is super pro vaccine) you couldn’t attend the wedding unless you were vaxxed up-that was the law in Ontario at the time.

          Without telling me my wife got vaxxed up (2) then my son came by and asked me:

          “You’re not coming to my wedding cause you won’t take a shot ”

          I replied, “I’d rather attend your 40th birthday party”

          Anyways, the wedding got cancelled because of covid regulations in January and they had it in June, the restrictions came off I attended the wedding.

          However, my wife’s heath has declined since she got vaxxed , nothing major but discernable; and , as any long time married man (5 plus years) knows she constantly blames me for letting her get the vax and mad that my health has improved.

          • NickelthroweR September 1, 2023 at 12:06 pm #

            I can’t prove it but I strongly suspect the vax is decimating my family.

            My daughter was diagnosed with RA & Lupus shortly after shot #2. Her work would have terminated her had she not complied.

            My father lost the ability to speak after his round of shots and has very advanced dementia now.

            My mother is now in a wheelchair having had a series of strokes that afflicted her immediately after round two.

            Two of my cousins died so suddenly that they were found sitting upright in chairs. They didn’t even have time to fall over.

            My sister has had both breast and skin cancer.

            Yesterday my Uncle was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer.

            I know that people get sick but much of this is suspicious.

            Nickel-my wife’s co worker has a brother was a healthy 38; after the third vax he had bad lung trouble; now he is on a waiting list for a new lung.

            From further research, apparently what he signed off on as the deal has ‘safe and effective’ specificlly those words, at least 15 times.

            So why does he not come and be transparent? I suspect it is his ego. He also has a personal policy of never apologizing.

            Not George- Trump will be rolled by his staff again. They’ve got him figured out pretty well. He may think he’s his own man, but he’ll be manipulated. He’s being rolled right now with this electoral campaign. I think he’s sincere as a narcissist can be, and the injustices he’s suffering are certainly real, but all this is being orchestrated for a reason. Think Color Revolution. It’s something the CIA and other nefarious orgs have perfected all over the world. Ukraine is a prime example. The US is the main target now.

            The actors may be sincere, actually they’re the best type for Color rev’s, but all this is being done to destroy US society. Why? Because it has to go down in order to be replaced. People’s grievences on both sides are real and deeply felt, but they are being rolled too. Egged on by NGOs and other well funded actors who are usually sincere too though often nuts.

            Comparative Impact Velocities

            Jimpa, energy is key and it’s all going down, not just the US.

            It seems simply just a question of who will get more of the scraps/dregs.

            Last I looked and, if recalled, the US was 5% of the global population consuming 25% of the global energies and/or resources.

            America seems to have has a longer way to fall and, as such, a higher impact velocity.

            If you want to continue to drive, maybe consider a vehicle that’s better/best for off-road, increasing civil infrastructure degradation and even sleeping/camping in.

            For a person with a huge ego like Trump, to say ‘I was scammed by Fauci and made a big mistake’ … is not easy. He probably figures if he waits long enough, he can just switch sides and not have to say ‘I was wrong, I was fooled’.

            At least he is saying the right things now, as they gear up for another round of tyranny.

            “Covid-19” has never been definitively shown to exist. Just another layer of fraud to keep us digging away as the Great Reset threads of deception intertwine to form the hangman’s noose.

            Patrick Henningsen over at TNT Radio just had another great segment on this very topic. Mike Yeadon has stated repeatedly that he has seen no evidence for the so-called virus.

            When one pieces together the circumstantial evidence, nearly everything points to one thing: Fraud.

        I knew three male-to-female sex changes–by which I mean they had had the dick removal, fake boobs, and artificially constructed vagina–back in the seventies. I guess I didn’t exactly “know” them. They were just people at the periphery of my social group. Once, after making a very late night of it, I decided to take a cab home, and one of the ladies asked me if I wanted to go to breakfast with her. We took a cab to the Brasserie (this was in NYC) and had a pretty long chat. She told me that she had been married, but that her husband never knew she was a trannie.

        While we were eating breakfast, she kept rolling her eyes and licking her lips at some guys in a nearby booth. (Surprisingly, the place was packed at four in the morning.) We went our separate ways after breakfast–she for some lucrative early-morning prostitution and me to get home and get to bed.

        But it turned out okay, I guess, as the guys picked up both our tabs. In subsequent years, I’ve realized that I was probably “bait” in that instance.

    ““Joe Biden” has LARPed his way to the final act of his performance. The evidence of his high crimes, and the covering-up of those high crimes by our lawless law officialdom, is piled high enough to eject him into the swales of infamy. We know exactly how the Ukraine grift went down — the documentation is stark and florid — as is the rest of family’s bribery operations in other lands not necessarily friendly to our own land. So, add treason to bribery and there you have the complete kit of perfidious treachery against the nation.”

    One can hope but ignoring it and then pretending it happened too long ago to matter has got them this far so why think it cannot continue?

    I mean the checks to C. Steele, emails, texts and other documentation for the Russiagate hoax/ conspiracy have been laid out for years now and slightly more than 50% of US’ers still think the “Don” was the villain in that fiasco.

      “One can hope but ignoring it and then pretending it happened too long ago to matter has got them this far so why think it cannot continue?”

      With no counter-group to punish any of these people, it will continue. Nothing will change. The elite cabal will re-install Biden if they feel like it, or change him out, if they feel like it. They will keep Trump as a foil and to draw out all the people they want to punish, or they’ll take him out, if they feel like it. They’ll keep murdering people with new jabs if they feel like it, or if they think the job is sufficiently accomplished, they’ll retire the jabs, if they feel like it. They’ll continue to import millions of third-world peasants to destroy the Remnant, drive down wages, bring in new diseases they can exploit, if they feel like it, or they can shut the operation down, if they feel like it…..

        • JohnAZ September 1, 2023 at 11:05 am #

          Okay, to all you non-voters.

          The Dems have figured out how to cinch elections.

          They have culled out a group, the Blacks, and kow towed to every whim, every gimme request to the point of ridiculous reparations.

          The result? When elections are separated by 1-5%, having a bloc like this is powerful stuff. The 50-50% split makes owning the Blacks almost unbeatable.

          Add on the cheating factories that cultivate the illegal vote trade and the Dems can pretty much do what they want.

          I laugh, maybe cry at what Trump is accused of doing in Georgia. Just think, an hour before Trump queried whether the GOP could come up with 1100 more votes, the Dems were querying how many more votes did they need to falsify to win. All in Atlanta, a Black megapolis.

          • JohnAZ September 1, 2023 at 11:06 am #

            The problem, JohnAZ, is even if we do get that Republican into office what do they do when they get there? Nothing. Not a damned thing.

            Look at the “freedom caucus” that stood up to McCarthy’s speakership. Rogue Federal Courts in the District of Columbia are under the direct oversight of the US Congress. Constitutionally, it’s all there. The Congress has the authority to remove rogue justices. Since all lawsuits involve the Federal Government are heard by Federal Courts the US Congress has the Constitutional authority to address the situation.

            Where are the “freedom caucus” members on this? No where. Nada. Zip.

            So what good does it do to vote for these people?

            Trump was promising to outdo them if elected last time around. His “platinum plan” would have rivaled Johnson’s Great Society.

            In old Haiti it was the mulattoes who held the balance of power, often attaining wealth and even Black slaves. When a new French regime ordered them stripped of their privileged, the Whites knew it was the stroke of doom. The mulattoes threw in with the Blacks and the carnage began. Jefferson met with some of the Whites who escaped the genocide.

            Cankerpuss – get real, man. The Freedom Caucus has a lot of pull, but they are still only about 10% of the GOP total caucus in the House. The RINO’s will NEVER vote to do the things to the DC court that you suggested. Since political capital is a precious thing, the Freedom Caucus chooses their fights carefully and resists the urge to tilt at windmills they cannot topple alone.

            As long as the blacks and Latinos stay on the plantation. Notice how crazy they got after so many blacks and Latinos started to support Trump. That was really when the knives came out for MAGA. Trump had hit on an unshakable coalition of half the white population and a (growing) third of blacks and Latinos.

          • Ron Anselmo September 1, 2023 at 10:52 am #

            Agreed. Better not to stick your head up. Better to deliver a message from 300 yards out – from a place they will not see, a sound they will not hear.

        • Jarek September 1, 2023 at 1:25 pm #

          During a debate Trump did say, Proud Boys stand by. A throwaway line but it helped support the Democrat narrative.

          Reagan (I think) made a joke about a strike against Russia. Russia immediately scrambled all their jets, etc.

          Trump never served in the military. And as we know now, is very cautious about actually taking action. He is about the last person who would ever lead a coup.

      • Cankerpuss September 1, 2023 at 10:43 am #

        Bingo! RD3 got it. There is nobody to counter the PTB. The Republicans? Seriously? The Republicans are so feckless they can’t even get themselves a real minority leader in the Senate. Mitch McConnell is in rapid decline and will soon be dead or incapacitated from dementia yet the idiot spineless Republicans still salute him and uphold him as their leader. What an absolute joke?

        And what are the Republicans doing about the shame justice system administered by the Federal courts in Washington D.C.? Nothing. Even though the Constitution grants the Congress direct authority to remove and establish judgeships within the district of Columbia. The Republicans do nothing. Where are those tough Republicans who stood up to McCarthy? Gone. Like a fart in the wind, those “tough” Republicans say nothing while rogue leftist judges put peaceful pro-life protesters who harmed nobody into prison for 17 years.

        There is no opposition to the ruling party. Republicans are worse than the Democrats. They give lip service but their actions show they are in full support of what is going on. Or, they are spineless boobs who are content to sit there and collect their big stipend and lobby for their next media talking head gig while the nation burns.

        I absolutely despise and hate all things Republican.

            They seem so to me, in retrospect. If it’s not intentional, it nevertheless has the same effect as if it had been a deliberate encouragement of the belief that someone is taking care of things and we need not do anything.

            Speaking of civil war, this could not be more true, and we have all seen it happen:

            “First thing that happens when civil order breaks down is people start using the lawlessness to settle scores.”

            This is from Martyr Made.

            First thing that happens when civil order breaks down is people start using the lawlessness to settle scores. We have a blinkered view of Civil war because of how ours went down. We didn’t really have a civil war; we split into two countries and had a regular war. Civil war looks like Beirut or Sarajevo, where you couldn’t walk outside for fear of being randomly sniped, and there were no pitched battles, just kidnappings, assassination, and basement torture sessions…

            @ Beryl of Oyl:

            You got that right. There are some towns and counties where there are a lot of stored-up grievances. I think they’re mostly related to abuse of power by various governmental entities, so probably most of the scores that would be settled would be with crooked judges and lawyers, cops, and city and county officials. People might also want to take out their neighborhood drug dealer, whom the cops have allowed to operate unmolested for ten or fifteen years.

            People may be annoyed with their neighbors, but they only get “killin’ mad” in relation to people who abuse their power. Well–except for the neighborhood tweakers who siphon gas from your car or break into your shed and steal your tools.

      I have come to the unfortunate realization that this Country isn’t worth saving anymore.

      $31 trillion in public debt.

      $36 – $72 trillion in private debt.

      Women who think they are men.

      Men who think they are women.

      Children being preyed upon by sexual deviants.

      Pornography is a multi-billion dollar industry.

      Religion is dead or dying as churches are useless.

      Fathers are gone having been destroyed by the feminists.

      Women have gone absolutely nutso.

      Tattoos abound everywhere on everyone.

      Drugs.

      Established law is ignored while implied law is enforced.

      Spanish is becoming the primary language.

      English is being warped to mean things it never has meant before.

      Everyone lies about their lives.

      Nobody owns their land and never will own their land.

      The nuclear family is dead.

        You are describing social discipline, the morality of a culture.

        With diversity, there is no central culture. So every perverted group can pretty much do what they want, especially concentrating political power in areas to take over.

        Diversity is NOT a good thing. The idea that diversity gives us great restaurants is absurd. Diversity gives us all the wonderful items CankerPuss just described.

        Without a central unifying culture, morality dies, the collective church dies, individuality dies, and the culture dies.

        We are all witnesses to this change, and every immigrant we admit makes it worse.

        BTW, where is the main center of peoples with social values that have not been destroyed by diversity. They are homogeneous zones, Russia, Middle East, Japan, China.

        BRICS++

        It is ironic that the diversity treasured in this country, and used by the government to divide us, will probably be what destroys us.

When and if Christ returns do you think he’ll be invited to a joint session of Congress to debate the merits of abortion rights? Or, if Christ comes back do you think he’ll be invited onto MSNBC to debate the pros and cons of transgenderism with Joe Scarborough? No. When he returns there won’t be much left.

          My daughter tells me that MOST of the married couples among her friends are unable to have children. I think this must be at least a slight exaggeration, because some of the groups she belongs to are always having a “food train” for a new mom. But there really does seem to be an alarming increase in infertility among white couples–which seems to be mostly female infertility.

          It’ difficult-to-impossible to get any figures on this. How would you measure it? I suppose you’d look at the numbers of couples seeking treatment for infertility, compared to past figures.

          Although the lack of statistics makes it hard to say anything with much certainty, I have the impression that infertility is disproportionately a “white people” problem. Since all of my daughter’s friends are well educated professionals, you can’t help but wonder if this group is disproportionately affected.

          Since–anecdotally, at least–you don’t see this problem among blacks or Hispanics, it makes you wonder if whites, and particularly whites of the professional class, have somehow been targeted for infertility. How would you even do that?

          I wish someone would look into this problem.

          • megabeth September 2, 2023 at 7:00 am #

            I belonged to the community of infertiles, back in the day, but my problem was a developmental fluke–a congenital uterine anomaly. Most couples I knew suffered from anovulation, frequently from polycystic ovarian syndrome which, frankly, is a disease of affluence. Nobody is concertedly trying to make whites infertile except whites themselves, through their own economic success.

          • Anthea September 2, 2023 at 10:12 am #

            @ Megabeth:

            One thing you see, when it comes to infertility, is that it seems like infertility is much more likely among educated, health-conscious professionals–people who eat right, exercise, and lead a healthy lifestyle.

            You could do that with a virus genetically altered to attack specific ethnicities & an mRNA “vaccine” against said virus designed to migrate to specific organs, such as gonads.

            And yes, it can be done. Different ethnicities have genetic differences beyond skin color. Eg, some (forget if north or south) Asians & Africans have more Ace2 receptors than whites. And the covid “vax” has constituents that cause the mrna to congregate in specific organs, including ovaries & testes, where it produces the lethal spikes.

            Anthea, I also noted that the infertility support groups I was connected with were predominantly made up of the well educated, typically in their 30s and 40s, when fecundity naturally drops, and that’s not much of a surprise. When it comes to PCOS, a lot of younger women with it manage to have a baby in their late teens or early 20s before finding themselves secondarily infertile. Whatever the particular cause, infertility largely affects older women.

          • Anthea September 3, 2023 at 9:32 pm #

            I think what happens in many cases is that couples begin “trying” to have a baby while still in their twenties but don’t begin to suspect infertility until several years have passed, so they’re apt to be in their thirties before they see a doctor about it.

            Another tip-off is when young people in their twenties have been sexually active for years but have never had even one “false alarm.”

            I’m not sure, mainly because I haven’t asked my daughter about her friends’ ages, but I’m guessing that they’re in their thirties and were probably diagnosed with infertility many years before.

            Also–though, again, I haven’t looked into the statistics–it doesn’t seem to me that the decline in fertility ater thirty is all that significant. In former times, it was quite usual for women in their thirties to have children. I can see how there is probably a greatly reduced likelihood of falling pregnant in your forties, but even that was not uncommon in former times.

    “The US will be delicately hung out to dry on this. Short of resorting to nuclear World War Three, there is nothing the US can do about it — except for the Democratic Party to blame the whole sorry thing on “Joe Biden” as he is forced to resign from office pending that aforesaid impeachment threat.”

    There is another option for Democrats- blame everything on Trump. They can’t, you say? Don’t worry, they’ll manage.

    RFK Jr. is leading the way, here he is blaming the border situation on Trump, and crediting Biden with just trying to be more humane than his predecessor:

    “President Biden justified his open borders policy as a humanitarian response to the appalling media revelations that the Trump-era Border Patrol had 2,600 “children in cages.”

        I didn’t leave out anything. That’s what the link is for.

        Yes I know what it is, and that’s the PROBLEM.

        He is maintaining that what Biden does is all the result of misguided policies.

        He’s running against the policies, not the man, and he is LYING about the policies.

        Did he not know those cages were from the previous administration, which Joe Biden was part of?

        • MaryQueen September 1, 2023 at 8:17 pm #

          And the cages actually started with Obama. Bet he’s not bothering to mention that, either.

          2013 – kids started going into cages.

        • mary.m September 2, 2023 at 11:51 am #

          Ok, I didn’t understand the nature of your complaint. I still don’t get why it’s a problem.

          Campaigns reduce everything to sound bites & here he is running against both Biden & Trump in one sound bite.

          Since Trump inherited the “cages” from Biden, but didn’t eliminate them, he, too, owns the policy.

          He doesn’t need to run against “the man”
          JB, at least not at this point. The GOP investigation & impeachment process will do that for him.

          Plus, the policies will remain the same regardless of which deep state candidate “wins.”

          Finally, if he runs against JB & the deep state replaces JB with, eg, Newsom, he’ll be back at square 1. Whereas, differentiating himself from policies works against any theoretical deep state candidate.

        • mary.m September 2, 2023 at 1:01 pm #

          Also, you wrote he is trying to make Biden look more humane than Trump. But he clearly shows Biden drastically increased the # of kids in “cages.’

          Or are you suggesting thay he thinks more kids in cages is an improvement?

        He’s ignoring what the administration is trying to do to Trump, and at the same time the revelations about the Biden crime syndicate are finally starting to creep into the MSM, he gave Biden a sterling character reference, and now he invented the tale that the open border is the result of Joe wanting to help those poor kids in cages.

      I’m sorry to see this, but I expected that at some point RFK Jr. would begin modifying his message in order to placate the corrupt party he insists on supporting. If he really was serious, I think he’d have run as an Independent – where he could have had a slight chance of picking up refugees from both parties, as well as some anti-Trump Republicans. He’s realizing he has to cosy up to the Dems and repudiate Trump to have even an outside chance (which he really doesn’t have anyway). Note that earlier he’d said he was proud that Trump liked him. He has changed his tune, and clearly read the room since then, or had it read for him.

    RFK Jr isn’t going to save anything.

    His fudging of the truth on the Palestinian/Israel conflict and the subsequent, and very precise, takedown by Max Blumenthal and Aaron Mate (on the Grayzone) seems to have given his campaign a pause.

    He sticks to light topics and easy things like “peace” (except for those pesky Palestinians) and avoids anything of substance.

    Here are a few titles of his recent video releases on Rumble:

    – Not My Job to Judge (won’t judge Joe Biden)
    – Eric Clapton for Truth, Unity & Peace (more rich & famous friends…)
    – Free Passports for Americans (national ID)

          The media, when it was in love with the Kennedy clan, spun the whole Camelot narrative. While Jack was busy banging away at Marilyn Monroe, random young secretaries, Jayne Mansfield, and generally anything he could find, the media crafted a fictitious tale about the handsome, brave young hero and his gorgeous, glamorous wife and perfect children. Obviously, the truth has been out there for a long time, but do you think, that if RFK, Jr. gets any serious traction, the corporate media will start burning down Camelot? There are still a lot of dumb Boomers out there who worship the whole Jackie O. fable…

          500 MM years ago-where I live in Oakville Canada on Lake Ontario-the climate here was tropical and there was 500% more CO2 in the air.

          18,000 years ago there was 1.5 miles of ice above where my house now sits.

          in 1000 AD Eric the Red colonized Greenland with his Vikings where they fished and grew barley.

          By the beginning of the 14th century the Vikings had to abandon Greenland as a mini ice age had occurred and they couldn’t grow barley any more.

          All this happened before one joule of fossil fuels was used (with the exception of Byzantine ‘fire’ – naphtha) on Earth.

          The earth is coming out of an ice age and temperatures go up.

      Why wouldn’t any country today have their best financial people fine-tooth-combing the national balance sheet to look for ways to get rid of US dollars and US treasuries?

      And when they find opportunities to bypass US dollar involvement in their trade deals, I think we are done seeing the media announcements on how they are doing it. No more, “today Japan and Saudi Arabia have announced a new bi-lateral trade deal allowing Japan to pay for oil using a blend of yen and gold, blah blah blah….”

      Countries are going to quit telling us HOW they are bypassing the dollar and US tbills and they are just going to keep finding ways to do it.

        At this point, it seems to me that other countries are more transparent than the US.

        We get bullshit handed to us by Squawking Heads quoting sources “who cannot be named”.

        Other countries put out readouts, and official announcements.

        At least, that is how it looks to me.

    A good write up by Mr. Kunstler as always. His writings always give me a feeling of hope that something is finally going to break loose and the devious evil acts of our ruling class will finally come to light and the filthy bastards will finally reap the rewards for their crimes.

    But…..nothing comes. The weeks turn into months and “JB” stays in power. The Ukraine disaster continues on. Congress does nothing. The justice system sends peaceful pro-life abortion protestors to prison for 17 years. Nothing happens. Nothing changes.

    At some point I just want something to break, something to come loose and for the truth of what these bastards have done to finally come to light for the idiot masses to see.

    It won’t happen. As much as I look forward to JHK’s writing I see things a little differently. Our collapse is not going to be quick. We are witnessing a very slow and deliberate destruction of the USA. So slow that the average American nitwit doesn’t notice. For he/she is too busy downloading their porn, looing for their next heroin fix, watching celebrities play army games in TV, fighting with fans over their NFL team, stuffing their faces with Big Macs, and so on and so forth.

    I just want something big to happen. I feel like I am stuck in the middle of a road and I can see a Mack Truck barreling down upon me. I know it is going to hit. I know it is going to hurt like hell. But the truck never comes. It just sits and idles a few yards away from me. Almost like it is mocking me. Just hit me already so we can move on to the next phase of our lives, whatever that will be like.

      Don’t worry. It’ll get much, much worse. Then, if we are indeed Babylon the Great, the country will cease to be in an hour. On the other hand, if we are last days Israel, the archangel Michael will deliver us from destruction by Russia and Iran, only to have a tremendous liar say he is God and he saved Israel. Either way, expect persecutions, murder, and mayhem to continue to be increasingly pervasive.

Too much of the public is suffering from mass psychosis not unlike Germany in 1930s. You know where that went. Half the nation is duped into thinking LGBTQXYZ++++ issues and climate change issues and race issues really are the MOST IMPORTANT crises of our time. They are never coming round again until they are on the streets hungry. So Mad Max World basically. It’s got to get a whole lot worse before there’s any great awakening if you ask me.

      Yep. I thought the Government tyranny that was clearly evident during the covid debacle would awaken freedom loving Americans but, to my dismay and shock, most Americans doubled down on the tyranny and even began enforcing Government mandates on their own.

      Here are my theories as to what is wrong. We have had it too good for too long. Our people no longer have to work to feed themselves. No longer have to work and build their own shelter. When people no longer have to worry about the basics for survival they then have ample time to worry about insignificant things such as their gender, their sexuality, their hair color, their piercings, their tattoos, their genitals and most nefarious, their pet causes. We really need a good war to cull the herd, a REAL pandemic to cull the herd, or a real DEPRESSION to cull the herd. The strong and intelligent will survive while the stupid blue haired tattooed grifters will kill themselves off.

      The elimination of God has also had horrible impacts on our people. We are hard wired to believe in deity, possibly done on purpose by that deity to help us want to be better and to improve ourselves and make ourselves better than the dogs. As our people have rejected deity and self improvement they are still hardwired to worship deity. So, they turn to false deity. They worship depraved celebrities. They worship Government. They worship trees. They worship the creations of their own hands. They worship false Gods.

      And so, here we are. A decadent, lazy, depraved society so far gone that there is no way to fix it.

      I’m still waiting for that Mack Truck to finally hit me. Get it over with already.

        And I argue that people today are lower than the dogs.

        Dogs don’t abort their young.

        Mother dogs work feverishly to care for their young, not destroy them like human females do.

        Dogs don’t cover their bodies with graffiti.

        Dogs don’t sexually exploit their young.

        Most dogs love unconditionally and are loyal and faithful to even an abusive owner. Humans have no loyalty to anyone.

        Dogs don’t waste. Humans waste everything.

        Many people today are lower than the dogs. Way lower than the dogs.

            Dogs are highly variable. Most dogs are dogs, but some dogs are people. (I suppose you could say the same thing about people.)

            The different breeds are very different. Some breeds are highly intelligent, and particular individuals among the intelligent breeds are REALLY intelligent. Some breeds are well mannered, but a lot of the “mutts” are not. Some breeds are courageous and will protect you and your property; others will hide behind you, if a stranger comes over.

            Working dogs, like herd dogs, are AMAZINGLY skilled, devoted, and courageous, when it comes to protecting their charges.

            Most dog-lovers want a “companion” dog, and it is often the only critter in their lives that gives them unconditional love and devotion. I’ve known animal-lovers who love dogs (and animals in general) and detest other humans. Often this is because their dog loves them, and nobody else does–though it has sometimes occurred to me that if they treated other humans as well as they treat their dogs, someone might like them.

            My daughter and her husband had a wonderful herd dog who was part Great Pyr and part Akbash. He protected the goats and chickens from varmints and the garden from rabbits, and fearlessly ran off the neighbor’s cattle when they strayed onto their property. As my daughter put it, “He took such good care of us.” Her husband sat up all night with him, the night he died.

            There are just different kinds of dogs.

          • mary.m September 2, 2023 at 1:30 pm #

            Dogs have significant mutations that distinguish them from wolves. Specifically & significantly, much smaller adrenals & a mutation similar to “Williams Syndrome” that causes them to be flooded with oxytocin. The bonding hormone.

            My mutt (lab/chow/heinz57) was well mannered, loved everybody, learned ridiculous amounts if human language, slept against my aching back, & after brutal,14 hour overnight shifts in the lab, would gently wash my feet one toe at a time. Humped my slippers as a tiny puppy, never again.

            My black mouth cur saved me from attack by a dog nearly 3x his size. But let my lab puppy chew his ears, face & tail, & protected her. He had impeccable manners & smelled like warm cinnamon buns until he was very old. Never humped. Velcro dog in the house. Protective of his home & family outside.

            My lab also has very good manners. She knows more human language than a lot of people. Her 1st full day home, at 8 weeks, learned her name, sit & come in minutes. Insanely smart.

            None of my 3 dogs has ever exhibited the negative traits you claim.

          • Jarek September 2, 2023 at 1:14 pm #

            Various little snubs like your wife hating you for not chaining her inside so she couldn’t destroy herself.

            And simultaneously wishing you were as sick and stupid as she is.

            You drove your man off and then despised him for acceding to your desire to be rid of him.

            You can’t win with many (most?) women.

          • Anthea September 3, 2023 at 5:31 pm #

            @ Jarek:

            Well, I think most of us–at least those who have been married–can tell many tales about how our spouses did stupid shit that we warned them against. Or they did stupid shit that one would think it would be unnecessary to warn them against (since surely nobody’s that stupid), and afterward blamed us for the bad outcome.

            Ones expectation in such cases is acknowledgement of the fault, contrition, an an improveent in their after-conduct. If that doesn’t happen, your response will be proportionate to the severity of the problem. The wife’s behavior mentioned in the above case, as best I can evaluate this without knowing her or her husband, is on the order of a sulky teenager. While that will definitely get old, it can be managed–and even fixed, over time and where there is good will. If I were him, for example, I would confront her and point out that she must take responsibility for her own actions. You can have these conversations without displaying any rancor–at least on your own part. If you’re addressing a husband, he might blow his stack, and, if a wife, she might run weeping into the bathroom.

            Some people can put up with this crap, and some people can’t. Some people respond to correction, and some people don’t.

        Everything has been carefully beta tested over the years. They wouldn’t have done it if they thought that they couldn’t suppress and manage the awakening. In fact, part of the plan was to cause some degree of “awakening” so these people could be identified and marked for destruction.

    Anyone following the Niger story? A military coup dislodged a France friendly government a few weeks ago, prompting a short visit by Satan’s girlfriend Victoria Nuland. Just the other day, the new leaders announced they were throwing out the French ambassador from the country, though so far they refuse to leave. Why all this bother about the poorest country in Sahel? It is France’ source of uranium for their nuclear reactors. Hahahaha.

    T b ere are many ideas about the instigators of the coup. China? Russia? I think it’s the US. France went off theNATO reservation with China a few months back. So the neocons are showing them a world with no US protection.

        • The Man They Call Zazelle September 1, 2023 at 9:57 pm #

          My response here is similar to the defund/remove-some-cops scenario I responded to hereon recently, wherein the premise was that, as cops are State lynchpins/keystones, a society can’t just remove them just like that without taking any precautions and expect things to be hunky-dory.

          So it is with removing a State.

          But decline it must, and likely will, since its structurals, their quality, and how they were assembled and how they operate are all fundamentally defective.

          Unlike anarchy.

            Zaz,
            I would like to further explore your perception of anarchy. You suggest that, in a declining state, that the quality of life will degrade, and that steps must be taken to mitigate the effects of those qualities that degrade? Further, you suggest that the state should be degraded to a point where active controls are defeated, and the quality of life then becomes…what? Have you any examples of anarchy in real life, or any historical period where anarchy might have been beneficial to human civilization? Or…or is civilization important?

            Have you ever experience anarchy?

        • The Man They Call Zazelle September 1, 2023 at 10:13 pm #

      Not the US. The coup/Niger leader refused to meet with Nuland. She met a low level lackey & left with nothing accomplished.

      Wagner has been active in Niger, as well as Mali, Burkina Fado & other adjacent countries.

      More likely that the US downed Prighozin’s plane to disrupt Wagner in Africa by taking out its entire leadership.

      • Paula D September 3, 2023 at 11:46 am #

        Wagner was not in Niger yet. Piroghzin had met with the leaders before he was killed.
        I agree that the US killed him, smack in the middle of the BRICS conference, and then conducted a world-wide media blitz blaming “that thug Putin”.
        That’s how they do.

      Don’t miss that Dr Peter McCullough speech in the enclosed video.
      It is sublime, superb in imparting the whole truth of what we and most of the world have been put through, and by whom over these past 3-1/2 years. He really lays it out authoritatively.

        It is a condensed version of what he has said many times.

        IMO, he is limiting the boundaries of the discussion on “Covid-19,” continuing with the idea of a “deadly” virus was released.

        A virus with a 99.8+ survival rate (even with manipulated statistics), a lack of any test capable of testing for said never-isolated virus, and a program of lockstep tyranny that would make the tyrants throughout history salivate.

        As usual, the freedom fighters are in disarray, as half of them say one thing and the other half another.

        Just as the technocratic psychopaths would like.

        This is the greatest fraud in human history, and even guys like McCullough are spreading bat-soup tin foil.

        • Amman September 2, 2023 at 3:39 am #

          He did not say deadly virus but he did affirm that

          1. There is such as thing as a corona virus which made people sick and

          2 That he and his team successfully treated patients infected by a corona-virus.

          Indeed “guys like McCullough” saved Lives as a Doctor and as a Speaker.

          • Night Owl September 2, 2023 at 7:53 am #

            My point was not that it wasn’t deadly (which was another lie from the powers that be), but that it has never been shown to exist at this point.

    Once again, I mostly agree with you about voting procedures, but I still think there should be early voting available at City Hall two weeks before Election Day, because you don’t have the detrimental chain-of-custody issues with those ballots that you do with mail-in voting.

      After a four-year absence from the local election officials work, I reapplied to work the 2024 elections, which would include the November presidential election. I was informed that we’d have NINE days to vote per election in 2024, and that the process has been streamlined. One thing is that as ballots come in, the envelopes will be OPENED by election workers, the ballots removed from the envelopes, the numbered tabs torn off the ballots, and the ballots returned to the envelopes. I almost laughed in total disbelief! Secure, anyone?? I didn’t catch exactly when all these pre-opened ballots would be tabulated. When I was working the absentee voter counting board before, the ballots came up to the counters (who were sequestered) in tubs arranged by precinct, still in their unopened envelopes. We’d then go through them by precinct and tabulate them. We wouldn’t be released until all were done, which often went into the wee hours.

      Sounds beyond nuts now.

        Yes, Q is clueless as to the correct usage (and non-usage) of commas, among other issues.

        I once attempted to edit someone’s book of short stories. He had a similar unfamiliarity with what constitutes a comma’s inclusion or exclusion, and where to exactly place them. I saw, very early on, that the work involved would outrun the compensation I was getting, so I sent back his creative efforts.

        Q’s gripes are just another example of churlish behaviour. JHK pumps out two weekly essays, proofed at least adequately. And that’s good enough. This isn’t part of a trade book or academic essay in a poli-sci journal.

        • Anthea September 2, 2023 at 1:38 am #

          @ Soul Forensics:

          I once got roped into editing a self-published book by a man who had no idea about grammar, punctuation, or much of anything else. It turned into a nightmare. He wanted to make constant revisions, plus my perfectionist tendencies drove me to make some embellishments. He loved the embellishments–which, as best I can remember, were some well chosen fonts–and wanted more of them.

          Anyway, the same guy asked me to edit his second book, and I declined.

          • Night Owl September 2, 2023 at 3:40 am #

            Be happy you don’t have to edit articles and other English-lang. works from non-native speakers–particularly in Germany, where every change requires a long-winded explanation or is potentially subject to review from a German-born English “professor.”

            I haven’t done copy-editing work in years. The nightmare job I mentioned actually involved both copy-editing and typesetting (on computer).

            Q. Shtik should go to work as a copy-editor for a year or so. That drills that stuff into you–almost permanently. (I think I’ve forgotten a thing or two over the years.) Once you’ve done copy-editing, you will never again be able to read a book without every little goof-up jumping out at you. You are scarred for life.

          • Anthea September 3, 2023 at 11:32 am #

            I’ve also done typesetting using the old photo-typesetting machines (the Compugraphic II, in my case), as well as paste-up. You changed font sizes on the Compugraphic by opening up the machine and changing the lens. The screen was about 2 1/2 inches wide, so you could never see more than about three words of your work at a time. When you got done, you took the film out of the machine, and the darkroom guy took it back to the darkroom to develop. Then you pasted up the galleys on graph paper, using a light table and a hot wax roller.

            Back in the 70s, before photo-typesetting, typesetters were big, burly guys who were able to cart around cases of lead type. They often worked late into the night and then went out to carouse around the titty bars.

  27. bobfitz03 September 1, 2023 at 11:24 am #

    Happening, happenings…crazy days indeed.

    The Democrats perch at the apex of political power in the US, they have never been in this position before. Big money, media, courts, and technology are arrayed to serve them. How did they get here?

    The globalists simply switched horses after they rode roughshod across the Middle East in full neo conservative glory. Bush/Cheney sucked the soul out of the Republican Party leaving a dried husk for the RINOs to play with.

    The Republicans were useful for wrecking nations internationally. But to get the job done domestically, the Big Club needed the Democrats. Who better than the hippie, yuppie, self righteous, hateful, morally devoid, gender confused, ever offended and victimized liberal left?

    Enter Obama, darling of the left, and harbinger of doom for the last, best hope for humanity. He set the stage alright. A cold, clean, smooth technician who installed apparatchiks at key posts across land and courts. His last act was to hand the axe to Hillary to deliver the coup de grace and usher in a good old fashioned Jacobite reign of terror to mop up the opposition.

    Enter Trump, the scourge of the left, an anti-woke orangutan casting wrenches and mean tweets into the machine. Generally grinding the gears to a halt and riling up the herd. The Blob in turn went ape and summoned all available hell energy to expel the man.

    One of the great mysteries of this psychodrama is why on earth team Obama installed “Joe Biden” to address Trump’s MAGA movement and lead the long march home. Clearly, he follows orders while Satan’s little helpers get things back on track. But the Biden program is the antithesis of value-add. The price of ceaseless lies, gaffes, stumbling, bumbling, pawing, petting, and grifting adds up.

    The incompetence and depravity of the Biden Bunch is exposing some ugly truths about the Democrats the globalists who pay for the party of chaos. Old Joe might take another tumble over Labor Day and need to call a lid on his tenure in the Oval Office.

The vehicles are already here, and the soldiers keep pouring across our southern border. The end game is upon us. Be prepared.

    Lest we forget, the damages done by the “vaccines” are not limited to the physical effects on the body, one must take into account the psychological effects as well.

    Millions of new prescriptions for Adderall were issued to combat the “side effect” of “Brain Fog”, (an as yet, clinically undefined term).

    That didn’t daunt our health care “Experts” one whit. The prescriptions were pumped out faster than hundred Dollar bills at the Dallas Fed.

    Over three years, I watched a very close friend descend into the darkness of Adderall insanity (“Madderall”).

    Trust me, the Oxycontin crisis ain’t nothing compared to what’s coming “down the Pike” on this shit. Unfortunately for my friend, the supply of Adderall was suddenly interrupted, ergo, “Cold Turkey”. The “street price” went to $10, $20, $30 a Tab.

    If you love anyone who got sucked into that lie, keep a very close watch on ’em.

    I’d suggest to that our “elected representatives” that the HIPPA guarantees of privacy, do not apply to anyone who thinks that killing a bunch of little kids (or other certifiable acts of Lunacy) is the right thing to do.

    I want to see prescription histories and the names of those prescribing. (and who in Government took the campaign bribe).

    Like I said, the Oxy epidemic, will “be as nothing”.

    • RD3 September 1, 2023 at 11:59 am #

      Very true. The pot-induced schizophrenia epidemic is barely being mentioned, but is looming on the horizon, as well. I think that the oxy/heroin/fentanyl has been a huge success for the elites. It has killed millions of white middle-Americans across huge swaths of Kentucky, West Virginia, rural Ohio, rural Pennsylvania, etc. and cleared out entire towns for third-world peasants, the new American people, to be moved into. At the same time, it has made the Sacklers and people like them, fabulously wealthy. If you don’t like the results of an election, elect a new people.

        Schizophrenia is also a result of MKUltra programming.

        And there are plenty of them out there.

        At this juncture, having learned all I have in the past 20 years, I have to wonder if schizophrenia would even exist without extreme mental and physical (including sexual) abuse of the individual, and/or having suffered through the CIA’s (or their minions) programs.

        Again: Ted Bundy, Unibomber, etc. etc.

        Watch Britney Spears some time, just take a look at her Instagram. She’s another one.

        They’re not all programmed to kill. Some are programmed to perform.

          MaryQueen, In 1967, I was 12. One day some shiny black shoes in suits, showed up at my homeroom, my teacher called my name and asked me forward. I was told to go with the two guys to the principals office, they had something to ask me.

          They explained that they were from the government and were forming a small group of kids to enter an “accelerated learning” class. I participated for one year and dropped out. They wanted Physicists, Mathematicians and others with useful weapon making intuitions.

          That, was MKUltra at the civilian level.

            One day in fourth grade, Scott (3 days older than I), Sue (3 days younger than I), and I were taken from our classrooms, out into the hallway, by some people we’d never seen before, and made to play Twister.

            We had briefly been a team – the Cuckoo Birds – in first grade, but had drifted apart.

            Makes me wonder what I don’t remember about elementary school…

          • SpeedyBB September 4, 2023 at 5:12 am #

            I experienced something analogous as a sophmore in Descriptive Linguistics at the University of Texas.

            A tentative appraisal by someone who had to have been a spook, perhaps looking at my language skills – an approach which the British refer to as “a hand on the knee”. I was polite and noncommittal, mostly because I suspected I would have to be dealing with permanently-embedded fuckups, and also because of my sexual predilection, which wouldn’t matter these days, apparently.

            My wariness paid off, when serpents like Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen were eventually busted, after getting lots of cooperative Russians nabbed and killed. Serious drinking problems, blowing money like there was no tomorrow – money the agency could clearly ascertain was not from the family or business gains. Yet these traitors carried on far too long. Hanssen even said, as he was busted at a dead drop “How come it took you so long to get me?”

            The only saving grace was that the other side was worse: the KGB proved riotously incompetent, time and again, outed, exposed, bumbling and fumbling their overseas assignments.

            In retrospect, the only intelligence organizations worth their salt – or the budget they are allotted – seem to be the French and the Israelis. For what it’s worth.

        • Anthea September 2, 2023 at 2:02 am #

          @ MaryQueen:

          That’s an interesting theory. I’ve only known one person who was actually diagnosed with schizophrenia. We were good friends–though I haven’t heard from him in years. He absolutely fits the profile of someone who had been subjected to MKUltra programming. He came from a very wealthy, very troubled family. His mother suffered from recurrent bouts of severe mental illness (though she was okay most of the time). Although he could not remember much of anything that happened before the age of 18, what he did remember suggested some kind of abuse. The reason he couldn’t remember anything was because he had nine months of shock treatments when he was in a mental institution at the age of 18.

          He was about 20 when I met him in college. He was delightful, empathetic, and insightful person–in some ways one of the finest people I’ve ever known. (He was also gay.) Everyone loved him.

          The reason I never hear from him is that he’s spent the past twenty years or so wandering around India and Eurasia without a laptop. The last I heard, he was afraid that “someone was after him.” He was also warning me, about ten years ago, that very dire things (unspecified) were coming.

          I’ve long suspected that he was an MKUtra child–probably a discard, because he just wasn’t going to “work out” some way or other. So the decision was made to erase his memory.

          • MaryQueen September 3, 2023 at 5:09 pm #

            Super interesting. Thanks for sharing that story. I have read a LOT of them that are so similar they might be the same one.

            It sort of reminds me of addiction. After watching that series “Intervention,” it appeared that 99.9% of the addicts all had major trauma of some sort in early childhood.

            It’s of course a common denominator that no one likes to look at. Much like it’s basically ignored that as the number of teen killers rise, there is the common denominator of SSRIs, marijuana, horror flicks, and video games.

            Then the yahoos come out shouting that it’s because of GUNS!! Which have always been around for the past few centuries.

        “…pot-induced schizophrenia epidemic…”

        Yeah, if you redefine “schizophrenia” and “epidemic”, and well, “pot-induced”…

        What I see is overlap between an overabundance of schizophrenia diagnoses, and an overabundance of stoners, but no pharmacological connection.

        • Jarek September 2, 2023 at 1:24 pm #

          It’s massively over-diagnosed in the United States as compared to Britain. Low level people get into drugs and criminality, ending up in institutions. Low IQ people are easily confused and get more confused when they do drugs. Then they learn “learned helplessness” and the diagnosis becomes part of their shaky self identity.

          Recently a paper was published that proved that SSRIs do nothing to help depression.

          They sure are found in a lot (most) of mass shooters’ bloodstreams, though.

    • MaryQueen September 1, 2023 at 12:23 pm #

      Agree completely.

      Let’s review what the minds of especially the younger generations are constantly subjected to:

      available violent porn
      available violent video games (they are designed to be addictive and hard to quit)
      available violent/horror/gory movies
      available and over-prescribed pharmaceuticals (esp. SSRIs, which in a recent study have shown not to help depression – at all)
      constant peer-pressure into the trans agenda
      teachers indoctrinating students into queer theory & trans
      parents throwing their kids under the bus for social credit
      isolation and forced screen learning during covid19
      available alcohol, pot (not your grammaw’s pot), hallucinagens, etc.

      and the big one:

      constant fearmongering from all gov’t controlled media 24/7 for years on end

          What they have done with manipulated sound frequencies, the repetitive rhythm patterns, combined with the visuals, it’s all too much to ponder, but is far from a stretch of the imagination to conclude it is one of their major go-to psy-ops. Not only are we chumps naturally, we are drawn to the hypnotic. Moth-like.

          “It can’t happen here” is reinforced by the always present notional fear of being named as conspiracy wackos, with the drummed into our heads messaging that it is always best to “move along with the herd and you’ll be just fine.”
          Boiled down, it’s the primal fear of being too far away from the fire, out in the range of the growling and the glowing eyes in the dark.

          And I can’t think off the top of my head any nation’s military-psychological warfare units not incorporating and having capitalized on this all-important aspect of dominating an enemy with fear, even if only a civilian’s the fear of rejection, the dreaded ‘othering.’
          On one hand it’s as old as the hills, but with the tech and subtle methods now available… So many Faucis and Daszaks, Barics and Christian Andersons, too many of themas leaders guided by the experiments done by Mengele & Co, and the Japanese Army Unit 731. Capturing their records was of the highest priority—and not for use in war crimes trials. “It’s the Science,” I tell you.

          It’s only when you dig—with a strong stomach—that you find it’s a ghoulish trait inherent to all cultures and races, that ‘enemies’ both foreign and domestic, are treated equally when the rationales of victory or knowledge gained compel these fellow humans to commit their unspeakable atrocities.
          God help us, for apparently they have concluded there. is insufficient knowledge about what goes on during world wars.

            A visceral reaction? I damn near spontaneously combust.

I was about to attempt to politely ask that someone change the channel, when one of my co-workers beat me to it. “Could you please shut that shit off?”, he asked, quite politely.

            Autotune: the fetishization of fake.

    Loved the article until this line: “But the party will be so badly damaged by then that it will have no other option except to let Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., in to drive out the remaining demons and save the venerable old org from suicide.”

    RFK, Jr. is one of the elites, he just appointed the CEO of American Zionists as an advisor. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Are zionists suddenly OK? Maybe they seem tame compared to, say, transhumanists? Surprise – they are a huge part of the cabal behind it.

    Venerable Org? I do not see how the Democrats have ever been “venerable.” We were just bamboozled into thinking they were, with programming and propaganda from birth. They have always been authoritarians who used cultural distractions to get people on board. They started the KKK, FFS.

    • Jarek September 1, 2023 at 2:35 pm #

      Yeah and now they’re against Whites. Content matters, Mary.

      But a fine post otherwise. Ted Kennedy worked tirelessly on behalf of the Zionists to open our borders. He was their front man while they worked behind the scenes. RFK is simply reviving those old connections.

      Maybe they’re a different faction from those currently in power? After all, Obama never pretended to care for Israel. But for us, you know, Whites?, it will all be much the same.

    They don’t seem to realize that decent moral people are appalled by these callous and blood-thirsty admissions.

    “Even Americans who have no particular interest in freedom and independence in democracies worldwide, should be satisfied that we’re getting our money’s worth on our Ukraine investment.” — Sen. Richard Blumenthal

    Can someone please make sense of this?

    I am sincere when I say I have no idea where to begin with this.

    Why would they be satisfied? How is this conclusion made? How is the first clause even made, let alone the conclusion?

    Not surprising that this word-jam comes from the lips of the politician who forgot that he never served in Vietnam, and is still in office.

    • DaveO907 September 1, 2023 at 2:29 pm #

        That is a very bold take, but alas it is the only one that even makes the slightest bit of sense.

        He is acknowleding the preponderence of people behind this war are not in it for anything more than a return on investment. For $.
        And (it is a very big “and”)
        these same people could not care less about democracy and freedom! I am so accustomed to politicians veiling their tue thought and motives that I tried to view it throuhj that lens. Nope! He siad the truth. This country has totally jumped the shark.

    Earlier this week, the out-to-lunch border authorities have reported at least 7,000 known entries on one day alone.

    The lastest estimates place the Mayorkas orchestrated invasion in the vicinity of 10 million people. 10 Million people.

    Depending on where one lives, you would have to be blind to have not noticed. Every city and small town in America is experiencing the effects of the open borders. This is only the first ripple.

    Many here believe that we are headed to a third-world or failed-status. I don’t remember them predicting that the third-world and failed-state would be simultaneously invading.

    “Losing income is the No. 1 reason Californians end up homeless — and the vast majority of them say a subsidy of as little as $300 a month could have kept them off the streets.

    That’s according to a new study out of UC San Francisco that provides the most comprehensive look yet at California’s homeless crisis.

    In the six months prior to becoming homeless, the Californians surveyed were making a median income of just $960 a month. The median rent for a two-bedroom apartment in California is nearly three times that, according to Zillow. And though survey participants listed a myriad of reasons why they lost their homes, more people cited a loss of, or reduction in, income than anything else.”

      Well, duh.

      It blows my mind that so many people buy into the fancy 1% bullshit explanations for homelessness, while the talking heads on TV gush over rising housing prices as something wonderful. Of course you will have people priced out of housing, when housing prices and rents rise. This started in the 80s, and has been going on for 40 years, and still people act baffled about the cause.

        Also, mental issues. 40 years ago, those with mental decline or disease, at least in Canada, would’ve been housed in mental institutions, or at least halfway houses or other social communities that could tend to them. Now, because of gov’t cutbacks, they’re just released onto the streets.

            It’s so much easier to blame the victims.

            There were no drug addicts or alcoholics before the 80s, you see. And there is no such thing as people who hold down jobs but tipple off-hours.

            And then, in 2001 and 2008, all of a sudden, people again became too drug addicted to stay in their houses.

            It has nothing at all to do with mass layoffs. Or Blackrock buying up houses and raising rents. Or cities closing down trailer parks and single-room-only apartment buildings.

            Nothing at all. It’s all the fault of the individuals who can’t afford to pay the rent.

            If I hadn’t had a support structure and great experience work-wise, or had kids to take care of – wow, I can’t even imagine.

            It’s no wonder people turned to drugs. At least selling them probably paid the rent.

            And this is also why people resort to trafficking and prostitution, while we’re on the subject.

            That is my answer too.

            I am so tired of the ills of our failed state, as well as the ills of those who have nothing, blamed completely on those who have already been stomped into the dirt.

            The class warfare instituted by our masters is working: the poor beat up on the poorer, in order to identify (probably mostly subconsciously) with the rich.

            @ Paula D:

            I remember the single-room apartment buildings. They had a stove, fridge and Murphy bed, and the bathroom was down the hall.

            That was where you lived if you were a young person who had moved to the big city to find work, or if you were an old person with no income but Social Security. People who lived in such places for any length of time usually formed friendships and provided each other with a support structure. It was a good setup for the old people, too. There were chairs, couches, and a TV in the lobby, so that the old people could gather to watch TV. Presumably they got to be friends, or at least had some social interaction.

      Bullshit. More talking points. I live in SD and the reason for homelessness is DRUGS. They are addicts. There are plenty of services and I believe the “affordable housing” narrative is complete and total BS.

      • The Man They Call Zazelle September 3, 2023 at 3:51 am #

        I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and we are seeing practically an explosion of homelessness. It can’t be all drugs, can it?, and looks to be at least more socioeconomic and social-decline/collapse-related. Maybe drugs are in there to help cope with their situation, At the same time, it is possible that society is deliberately being flooded with drugs.

        —-

        ” ‘I am a former Los Angeles Police narcotics detective. I worked South Central Los Angeles and I can tell you, Director Deutch, emphatically and without equivocation, that the [Central Intelligence] Agency has dealt drugs in this country for a long time.’ (He then referred Deutch to three specific CIA agency operations known as Amadeus, Pegasus and Watchtower… Ruppert… [said] that in his experience as an LAPD narcotics officer, he has seen evidence of CIA complicity in drug dealing for a long time.).” ~ Michael Ruppert, documentary film, ‘Collapse’

          @ The Man They Call Zazelle:

          “It can’t all be drugs, can it?”

          Well, if you think about it, it seems likely that most people who were just down on their luck due to job loss or eviction would be taken in by relatives, or even friends in some cases.

          The fact that most of the homeless are unable to even couch surf tells you something. I’ve “sort of” known three people who were homeless, at least for awhile. One was severe alcoholic, one suffered from undiagnosed lifelong cerebral palsy, and one was a druggie with at least one conviction for child-molesting. In the case of the last one, my impression was that he was not allowed in his parents’ home, due to the restraining order. The first two were able to get housing and go on disability. I think the third one went back to jail. The guy with cerebral palsy was taken in by a local woman, who got him to a doctor and helped him get on disability.

          The woman who was the severe alcoholic was gifted a vacant lot in a rural township. She lived quite happily there in a camper-trailer for many years and was finally taken in by a daughter when she was dying of cancer.

          I also met one formerly homeless young woman, back when I was doing the farmers’ market. She had gotten a job and an apartment and moved out of the homless shelter. She was intelligent, hard-working, and a pretty young thing. I didn’t ask her how she got in such fix, but I guess it could happen to anyone.

          My point, though, is that a pretty large percentage of the homeless are people whom no one will take in, even as couch-surfers.

          • Paula D September 3, 2023 at 12:01 pm #

            I have taken in homeless friends and relatives. The situation usually lasted only a couple of months, at most.

            It’s one thing to tolerate people as visitors, but when they move it, you find out that they do everything differently than you do.

            Their kids keep yours awake, or fight with them. They eat more than you thought possible, and your food bill goes up. The bathroom is more in demand, and that leads to uncomfortable situations.

            After a while, I asked each of them to leave. No alcohol or drug abuse by any of them.
            One lived in her brother’s van for a while, but the rest moved in with other relatives, or out of town.

            Hi Anthea, I get that, but we can’t discount socioeconomic upheaval either.
            It seems it’s rarely a case of ‘It’s just the homeless’ fault.’, especially now.
            Also, as I mentioned elsewheren in these threads, there may be some sort(s) of subcultural war(s) going on as well right under our noses, such as between some of the homeless (perhaps they are homeless by choice and it is a kind of protest) and the State.
            Don’t forget the defund police thing, Wokeism, which, sometimes, ironically perhaps, can be anti-state, BLM and so on.
            Consider also cost-of-living increases, like for all of us, as well as increasing job insecurity, general life stress, increasingly-poor future outlooks, and so forth.

            Systemic nuance.

    Despite what 50-60% of the commentariat think here, I believe JHK now has a pretty firm grip on what the Zeitgeist holds in the immediate future – “…the pitchforks finally come out for the people who wrecked the country.”

    Everyone now knows (at some level) that we are experiencing the most profound cultural, economic, political crisis of our lifetimes.

    All of the elites, of all political persuasions, are in the processes of going all in–taken the stakes

    Our general population, of all political persuasions, are also in the process of realizing that they must go all in–taken the stakes.

    JHK has painted one scenario for how this might all work out.

    As we collectively enter this hell-scape together, let’s keep in mind that we are all broken in some way–each of us, as well as our friends and our enemies.

    One process few people seem to be discussing (?whistling by the graveyard) is what happened at the recent BRICS+ meeting in S. Africa. The major event was the unanimous agreement of US$ rejection. This has been misunderstood, or obfuscated, by most of the propaganda ‘financial’ corporate press. The meeting did not announce a gold BRICS currency, as many expected, but they did announce that all trade will be done exclusively with native currencies of BRICS+ members (i.e. NO MORE US$s). Also, the African Union was allowed into the BRICS+ membership; think no more strategic metals for non BRICS+ countries, or very very high prices as they will have to be bought with the Yuan at parity with the US$. It sure is a good thing that the US Corporation doesn’t have to import anything from others!!!!! Sarcasm intended 🙂

Stop listening to CNBC, CNN, Fox, etc; they’re trying to talk up the buying power of the us$ and down playing the power of the BRICS+. Wait until you can’t get antibiotics this winter because the Chinese, part of BRICS+, are putting an embargo on the USCORP. If smart, Get out of the US$!!!

            At my last visit to my doctor (the GP), she said that if I had any issues requiring surgery, I should get them taken care of now. We talked a little about what might be on the horizon with medical care–or the future lack thereof–but there wasn’t enough time to go into a deep discussion. There are many, many issues.

            I had a similar discussion with my daughter (the one who works in health care) a couple of weeks later–once again just scratching the surface as to the possible issues. I didn’t go much beyond mentioning that Medicare and Medicaid are grossly insolvent, and many hospitals are in financial trouble. With most people, when you start talking about medications and devices becoming unavailable–or serious social collapse–you’re getting into deep waters, where they cannot follow you, so it’s often best to keep your mouth shut.

            I’ve thought a lot about getting out of the US–which I consider a good idea. I’m thinking mainly in terms of family members who live in this immediate area. The trouble is–even apart from the ones who live on the east coast or the west coast or the far north–the family is just too darned big. There are too many people who would have to agree to relocate–and come up with the money. And there are some old folks, like myself, who might not be eligible. There are the married kids, whose spouses have siblings and older/aging parents. And of course every family has a couple of potheads or people who are otherwise so looney that no other country would accept them. I can’t see abandoning a whole bunch of family members.

            Medical care is already being rationed based on what insurance you have. Once the insurance companies start failing (they are all heavily invested in Treasury Bonds which are literally worthless), the rationing will involve who has CASH (or gold/silver/crypto).

            @ neurodoc:

            The reason my doctor got to talking about potential future problems in accessing medical care is that it is time for a government audit of her private practice. I think she said the last one was five years ago–at which time she experienced no problems. She didn’t say who will be doing the audit, so I’m not clear on the details of this.

            What she did say was that if the audit went unfavorably, she could be put out of business. I don’t know the mechanism for this, whether the loss of her license or merely shutting off her practice from insurance payments. The reason for her concern is that she is a little heterodox. She does not vaccinate children (or anyone else)–doesn’t do vaccinations at all. She also prescribes Ivermectin when needed, and did so throughout the covid nonsense. (The pharmacy in town will fill a prescription for Ivermectin.) A young couple I know who took their newborn to her for a well-baby exam, at the age of two weeks. She advised them not to allow the baby to be vaccinated for covid, under any circumstances. She also provided the couple with references for researching vaccinations, to help them decide whether to vaccinate the baby.

            She said that if she were to find herself unable to accept insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid, she would simply go to all cash transactions.

            Since this is in a relatively poor rural area, it might be a tight squeeze to stay in business, and a serious reduction in income for her, but I think she’d manage.

          • JohnAZ September 1, 2023 at 7:18 pm #

            Right, think of the US treasury note, right now the backbone of international debt, as an IOU. The only thing stopping international bankruptcy is the fact that interest payments on the debt are being covered, so far. How? Think illicit trades and the border.

            The book I read a couple of years ago stated that shutting down the border will tumble the house of cards that is the IMF. Scary, Trump builds the wall and the WEF and BRICS both collapse. Gee, I wonder if that is why the Liberals will do ANYTHING to stop him.

            The PTB get away with this because there is not an appreciable drain on the debt by its creditors, ie us, US Treasury holders. Yet, but it is coming as Boomers start drawing on their savings, ie Rooted in US Treasuries.

            One more, what is going on is a product of manipulation by the US Deep State and globalist finances for decades. The enormous Deep State debt is 33 trillion, but that is trivial compared to the personal US debt and the global debt.

            Shut down the border, the human trafficking, the drugs, etc., and it may bring on the fiscal end as the IMF will not be able to cover its basic payments.

            As the US is the peak of the finance pyramid, we will fall the furthest.

            If the liquidity financing the global debt interest payments, which the author stated was coming from illicit trades, was to disappear by closing the border, it all comes down.

            Microeconimically speaking, think if a debt laden, interest only paying household were to lose its job.

            The global boys are only as good as the US ability to support them. When we go down, so do they, WEF and BRICS included.

          • Dr Zonk September 1, 2023 at 7:59 pm #

            I don’t think so, John. BRICS is not another house of cards (fiat). BRICS is tangible-asset based. That is, BRICS is backed by gold (i.e. real money). A border wall between Texas and Mexico would not crash Brazil, China, Russia, India nor South Africa.

            In fact, BRICS is being constructed for that very reason – to survive after the collapse of US$, IMF, et al.

      BRICS is an alternative organization, meant to organize countries who see what is coming, into what we might call survival community.

      The US is going down, we all know that, and people on here constantly tell each other to prepare for the collapse, and to learn to trade goods and such.

      But when countries targeted by the US rulers organize themselves to trade and deal with each other, using alternative payment methods, somehow it’s suddenly a threat to us? For doing what we know we need to do?

The criminal Rockefeller group took over medicine years ago and eventually linked ‘medical’ practice inextricably to BIG hospital systems and BIG pharma. Now 80%+ of physicians, and their slave darlings, the nurse practitioners, are corporate employees; the remainder, like myself, are dinosaurs in private small group or solo practice (i.e. independent and not owned by anything and hated by corporate health care, especially after turning down buy out offers from the hospital systems).

          and nurses (who used to run hospitals). Next MBA morons, knowing nothing about healthcare, were brought in to run hospitals and their clinics. Profit motive began to supersede medical ‘care.’The rest is history and horrific. Stay out of hospitals at all costs!!!!

      McCullough’s video is still on YT because we are swamped in trivial and irrelevant information. You don’t have to suppress something that almost no one is prepared to believe. Everyone is too busy pursuing and guzzling Soma.

      • MaryQueen September 2, 2023 at 9:54 am #

        I cannot disagree with that.

        Also, as others mentioned, he is still pushing the existence of some sort of pandemic that never occurred.

        People got poisoned by something – but the death rate was not the 4% required to call it a pandemic.

        It was no higher than a regular flu season.

        • megabeth September 2, 2023 at 12:56 pm #

          Is it possible he’s just positing that there was a pandemic for the purposes of even talking about what just got pulled on us?

          • MaryQueen September 2, 2023 at 1:02 pm #

            Sure, it’s all still very helpful, IMHO.

            He’s pointing out – in detail – that the health mafia pulled all this shit to make billions. And they set up a system to do it, and that system will expand to keep it going, and growing, in leaps and bounds.

            Health is being “built in” to the sustainability stuff, so that they can make laws forcing all sorts of shit on us.

          It wasn’t “others” who claimed there was no virus, it was one person doing his robotic maniacal repetitions, as he does on every thread, as autists are wont to do.
          Have we ever had a thread which he did not spam with his ill-informed chants?

          It takes a lot of damn gall to tell people who testify how sick they were, “You weren’t sick, you just had a cold. There is no such thing as the disease that wiped you out for a week. You just want attention.”.

          But it is going to new narcissistic heights to claim that the foremost doctor in the country didn’t treat sick patients, because NIght Soil watched a video that convinced his feeble mind that there are no such things as viruses, or bioweapon research labs, or mad scientists working on gain-of-function pathogens. So he trashes Dr. McCullough, as if he were qualified in some manner to do so.
          He is either an idiot or a NAFO troll.

    The Russians have put out a powerful message to those poor Ukrainian boys press-ganged off the streets to be thrown on the frontlines.

    Not the nazis lined up behind them, holding guns to their backs to force them into the kill zone, so as to gratify the likes of Romney and Graham and Larry Fink.
    A lot of the press-ganged Ukies are actually ethnic Russians, which gives a special thrill to the western ghouls watching them suffer and die.

    “… where the Swamp lies burbling and skreeking, unseen hands work overtime to falsify reality…”

    Those who know the true and real history on this Planet know that this kind of mind-altering garbage on We the People has been going on for a very long time. It probably has been going on in some form ever since humans began to organize themselves into defined groupings. And the leaders of those groups need a narrative to hold the group together and to grab a solid hold on power over The People.

    In other words, the Swamps may change… but they always remain Swamps. Always drowning We the People in a deluge of lies, propaganda, contrivances, and overwhelming horse manure. And being so proud of Themselves in the process. Anybody got something else they want to sacrifice to an Owl Statue?

    “… the people of this land will have to choose between being rolled-over by a globalist coup or find other routes of resistance.”

    This is the eternal struggle over the preservation of the human soul. Ours. The liars and energy vampires always want to steal it from you forever. So, we never can let down from our necessity to tell these bastards to go straight to hell and stay there.

    “… ‘Joe Biden’ announced last week that Americans would be ‘encouraged’ to get a new-and-improved mRNA vaccine booster…”

    And We the People similarly encourage The Resident to take his mRNA boosters and (deleted) it all the way up his unroyal (deleted).

    “If you think that these various momentous happenings won’t affect the financial markets and the banking system in the coming season, prepare to be amazed. This is how America truly gets to feel the pain…”

    America has felt little but pain since 1963. It felt plenty of pain during the first two World Wars. Then we were allowed by the Hidden Dark State Hand a few years of relative peace and prosperity. But – so as not to make the mistake of letting We the People get used to that kind of life – we were quickly ushered into the dark mid-60s years of being led by a War Monger and his newly installed associated misfits. And that unholy kind of rule has gone on unabated since then.

    Americans and pain have become almost synonymous. We don’t want it. We don’t need it. But we are never asked about what We want.

    ‘THIS’ (our lives and times today) is what you’re going to get!’ the Hidden Dark State Hand tells us. ‘And you had better-the-hell like it’… ‘or we can make it WORSE.’

    Hell exists for a reason. And hell is not meant to be lived on this Earth. It is reserved for those who are earning their place there. And all those who lived that way before to earn their place in the hot realm. And one day, they’ll all be there together (And don’t you just love happy reunions?).

    “In view of the foregoing arguments, we might well restate Olsonís ultimate economic conclusion on anarchy as follows: If a population acts to serve its common interest, it will never choose the state. In reaching this conclusion, we need not deny the countless problems that will plague the people living in a society without the state; any anarchical society, being peopled in normal proportion by vile and corruptible individuals, will have crimes and miseries aplenty. But everything that makes life without a state undesirable makes life with a state even more undesirable. The idea that the anti-social tendencies that afflict people in every society can be cured or even ameliorated by giving a few persons great discretionary power over all the others is, upon serious reflection, seen to be a wildly mistaken notion. Perhaps it is needless to add that the structural checks and balances on which Madison relied to restrain the government’s abuses have proven to be increasingly unavailing and, bearing in mind the expansive claims and actions under the present U.S. regime, are now almost wholly superseded by a form of executive caesarism in which the departments of government that were designed to check and balance each other have instead coalesced in a mutually supportive design to plunder the people and reduce them to absolute domination by the state.

    My arguments in support of self-government, as opposed to society under a state, may have little point, of course: if people do not choose the state, but, as I think, simply have it imposed on them, then it makes no practical difference that the state is unnecessary to solve any particular kind of problem and that life without the state would be superior (Holcombe 2004). Life without cancer would be superior, too, but so far we have not found a way to get rid of it, and we have no guarantee that we ever will find a way, so we can only strive to make the best of a bad situation. We need also to consider the likely outcome if our society had no state but another society did, and that state had the capacity to harm us greatly and, for whatever reason, sought to do so. I am not convinced that this particular problem is insoluble, and indeed I believe that the state’s defenders may have blown it out of proportion, but I do not dismiss it entirely. The Irish monks may have had the better argument, but it availed them little when Henry VIII decided to rip the roof off the monastery.

    Here, however, I have tried only to show how we may think more clearly about the choice between a society under the state and a society composed of self-governing individuals. Assuming that we really had such a choice, the better option seems to me fairly obvious. If the reader takes anything away from my arguments here, however, I hope that it will be an appreciation of how highly warranted is an application of the precautionary principle in choosing between anarchy and the state. Fire has proven to be a magnificent aid to human beings, but a fire that cannot be contained portends our utter destruction, and the state is precisely such a fire.” ~ Robert Higgs, ‘If Men Were Angels: The Basic Analytics of the State versus Self-government’

        Think that the homeless are there because the Feds, in their drive to make us more dependent, are actually succeeding. These folks, the ones that are not mentally impaired, may not have an Avenue of economic recovery. Having a paycheck to paycheck job for decades that has been obsoleted means no Avenue of recovery. No retraining, no nothing.

        The Deep State loves it. Andrew Yang loved it as he ran for president based on UBI. UBI is a brain child of the hi tech culture on what to do with obsoleted workers that the companies want no part of. So slough it off onto the government’s back.

        Yeah, the same government that is 33 trillion in debt trying to cover the millions of illegal immigrants it has admitted.

        No matter what economic direction I look, the end is coming and accelerating.

        UBI, what a joke. It represents the separation of money from wealth, the end of which will be hyperinflation. Idiots in the government just think money is a piece of paper, they do not care if it says $1 or 1 million $ on it.

        A LOT of people who were previous addicts and alcoholics relapsed during the Covid19 forced lockdown/hoax/touchless torture episode that went on for 2+ years.

        And a lot of people lost their businesses ofr jobs to the lockdown fascism. Add to that, after the clotshot started, people have gone bankrupt with medical bills paying for their loved ones’ injuries, deaths and funerals.

        I don’t think any of this has been tracked, but it’s widespread.

        It’s not just people who don’t want to work and don’t know how to pay bills – it’s people who can’t, by no fault of their own.

          I have read that the biggest growth in homelessness is in the elderly, those who worked all their lives, but now live on SS.

          Then a hedge fund buys up the apartment they live in, raises the rents, and then evicts the ones who can’t pay.

          Just a poor choice on the part of the elderly, you see, to live in a place that was bought by a hedge fund. How irresponsible of them.

            Mary & Paula – check out the Chapwood Index on real, true inflation. Ed Butowsky started it back in 2008.

            He is a financial planner and his impetus for looking at inflation was that his mother in her 80’s had to go back to work after running thru her money.

            Elderly on SS get COLA’s based on US Gov reported CPI of 1-2%, when real inflation rages at 10-15% annually.

            Not hard to figure out the math & why the elderly run out of money.

    • BackRowHeckler September 1, 2023 at 4:53 pm #

      Zaz, the State was supposed to disappear under Lenin, too; instead, the State grew stronger, and murderous.

      It was a simple matter of “The killing will continue until attitudes improve.” The question is, what will you do with Conrade Citizens not down with the Anarchist program? How will you deal with them? Or are you simply talking about theory, not practical application? The fact is, whatever outcome you are hoping for, the opposite might happen, in fact, most likely will happen.

      • The Man They Call Zazelle September 2, 2023 at 2:57 am #

        BackRowHeckler, in order to have many things, including anarchy or the State, conditions need to be met. In some places and times, the conditions will be met and, in other places and times, they won’t.

        Anarchy is not a ‘program’, although it can guide/inform one. It’s just a very simple set of ethical principles.

        At present, we appear to be hitting peak State as more and more people begin to question and challenge its ethics and as they look to anarchy in the process

        So the conditions appear to be changing, at least for some people in some places.

        • BackRowHeckler September 2, 2023 at 4:12 am #

          Zaz, human nature being what it is, conditions will never be met that would foster an Anarchistic State. He term ‘Anarchistic State’ itself is an oxymoron.

          The closest thing I can think of is right here where I live, in the year say, 1675: a town with plenty of resources and land, populated with educated, hardworking, self sufficient, middle class people from England, who belonged to the same (Congregational) church, spoke the same language (English) each with a farm — about 300 acres — but also each fulfilling an important vocational role, one being a cooper, another operating a sawmill, yet another an ice house etc. Best I can tell no established law enforcement existed, and the only ‘Government’ was the Church, who kept the records and levied a very small tax. Citizens seem to have been ‘self policing’ at the time. Even then, north & east of here, King Phillip’s War broke out and a defense force had to be organized, and also a company of soldiers was mustered to fight Indians in Rhode Island..

          So there you have it, people sharing the same religion, language, culture and background, living in orderly anarchy. It worked pretty good until Baptists showed up, and then in about the 1820s, Irish laborers, who wanted to build a Catholic Church. That’s when the sh#t hit the fan, and a more organized & official state govt established itself.

          Can you name any other place and time in history where Anarchists ran the show and things went smoothly? Without assassinations, and no bombs be set off?

    • elysianfield September 1, 2023 at 5:01 pm #

      You want to experience anarchy? Go to prison and become the bitch of the largest negro on the block who bought you for two packs of Kools….

        “Every man for himself”

        “Let the strongest man win”

          If the State cannot keep itself together– and many indications suggest it can’t and won’t– then it will fragment into smaller and more localized social structures.

          Some of the more mature, responsible, enlightened ones may survive and thrive, while others perish or have a harder time adapting.

          Some sorts of people who thrived best/better in the Mommy and Daddy State ecosystems might find themselves unable to adapt, such as when they need a diaper-change after a little accident.

          My take is hardly Kumbaya. Kumbaya might come more from those with little appreciation for where I’m actually coming from.

            You don’t owe me or anyone else subscription to a particular kind of ethical prescription or perversion, except of course where I have a gun pointed to your head along with some demands, never mind your prison analogy.

            But that– the State– seems a monoculture that’s blanketed and infected the entire planet as well as, perhaps, your way of thinking and doing.

            What does Mother Nature have to say about monocultures? What is her ‘ideology’?

            (shrug)

            Hunter and Joe Biden, the ‘Deep State’ and all its particular cronies, could be viewed as among anarchism’s anti-heroes in their subversions, often in plain sight, of the American State system (and of the State system in general) and any ethics it might have had.

            I am not necessarily enamored with our current status. It is heavily flawed, as are other systems, as is humanity. The state exists to, at some level, to protect the weak. It might be arguable, in an academic setting, to argue that the weak should not live, nor breed. In a truly just society of right-thinking men, this might have merit. But humanity, in general, is selfish, uncaring, and sometimes predatory. It is the mark of EVERY utopian paradigm that humanity be changed to something other than what it represents.

            The state is/or will soon be dysfunctional? Maybe at some level. However, a real life, real time experiment is currently being conducted to study your most basic premise, naked of qualifications.

      I don’t know. Legalizing murder is pretty anarchic, and I think I would support it.

        Gus,
        The “Wild West” was a bit idealized. The reality would be your neighbor shooting you in the back because your dog crapped on their lawn once to often.

          On the whole, the highly trigger-happy would get retributionized and weeded out.

          Legalizing murder also legalizes revenge murder..

            A lot of wild-west crime was outlaw vs. forces of (weak) civilization (farmers, city settlers, the overly wealthy).

            Rather than outlaw vs. innocent citizens pure as the driven snow.

      Zazz, anarchy (“no ruler”) would be my ideal form of government too. But it is a form of government that I think is impossible. It could work with a rational and conscientious population, but they’re a rare species.

      And if rational, conscientious anarchists managed to carve out a home of their own, they would be beset by slobbering mobs of the emotional and selfish, now sadly bereft of the ameliorating influence of the rational who once lived among them.

          Zazz, I witnessed your gunfight above, and side-stepped to the end of the line to avoid the cross-fire (i.e., being accused of agreeing with you!).

          If you haven’t already, you should visit The Corbett Report. James Corbett is an anarchist, aware, and articulate. He also provides references for the claims he makes – I like that.

          I think most people conflate anarchy with chaos. Just as they conflate fascism with plutocracy, and sociopathy with psychopathy.

          So many terms to define, so little time…

          • The Man They Call Zazelle September 3, 2023 at 3:11 am #

            I’ve been aware of Corbett for some time and already mentioned upthread or in the previous article’s threads that he’s an anarchist.

            But if we really think about it, shouldn’t we all be anarchists, unless we are sociopsychopathic?

            I also wrote this in the previous article’s threads:

            —-

            “You’re looking on the wrong end, folks…

            The other end is the foundation, where things start and are built upon, unless you live in cloud cuckoo land:

            • The State is foundationally coercive/non-consensual.

            • Anarchy is foundationally non-coercive/consensual

        Until FUKIS destroyed Libya, I had no idea how their government was organized.

        Apparently, Ghaddafi thought that the best democracy was grass roots democracy, so Libya was organized so that all decisions were made in mass meetings. Everyone was supposed to go and have their voice heard.

        Reality check- very few people like to go to meetings. The meetings were not well attended.

        Still, the country worked well enough to be considered the country with the highest standard of living in Africa.

        Now, of course, it is a terrorist-infested hellhole which holds slave markets, and which people have been drowning in the Mediterranean to escape, since Hillary Clinton first cackled “We came, we saw, he died”.

        You could call it anarchy now, but since war lords have organized and are battling it out, it was actually more anarchic before, if you consider anarchy to be self government.

        It’s just that people don’t like to go to meetings.

        • gustafson.robert.22 September 2, 2023 at 12:47 pm #

          Nation-states don’t work. They’re too big, economically compromised towards the benefit of higher ends of class systems and towards shortsighted ecological practices—and, at the root, common people hate them and merely find themselves unfortunately enmeshed in them.

          Nation-states are inherently unstable and shortlived, and social-reform ideas that assume the continuation of nation-state structures are as doomed as those structures.

          • Paula D September 2, 2023 at 1:33 pm #

            In theory. But Libya was destroyed for her oil, gold and silver.
            Only a nation state can protect itself from predators.

            Libya managed to fight off FUKUS for 9 months, which is pretty impressive for such a small country.

            But you can see now why they had to fight so hard.

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

          • BackRowHeckler September 3, 2023 at 7:54 am #

            Zaz, you seem to justify previous acts of Anarchist violence by pointing out wars modern nation states engage in. But the modern Nation-State wasn’t created until 1648 with the Treaty of Westphalia; there were plenty of wars before that, my friend. Even in pre historic times your idolized neolithic hominids were fighting over territory & resources … chucking spears at each other and throwing one another off cliffs.

          • The Man They Call Zazelle September 3, 2023 at 9:06 pm #

            City States preceded nation States, but in any case, it should be obvious that some States, tribes, bands, relationships and individuals are/were different, like for example, less violent/unethical/dictatorial/unenlightened/etc. and more gentle/ethical/anarchistic/enlightened/etc. than others.

      • The Man They Call Zazelle September 3, 2023 at 2:56 am #

        Anarchy is, with some exceptions/qualifications, against government, so aside from you and BackRowHeckler, above-thread with ‘Anarchist State’, no one is mixing those two things up. If I did, it was likely with some qualification.

        Anyway, problems that might beset people attempting to acheive or improve things, such as through anarchist principles, is no reason not to try or, at the very least, to hold and express such principles.

        Otherwise, what are we saying exactly? That corruption for example is ok?

        Then we might as well applaud the actions of all those State players that JHK laments each week.

        • elysianfield September 3, 2023 at 12:43 pm #

          Zaz,
          What WE are saying is that corruption is baked into any system that involves humans.

          “Anyway, problems that might beset people attempting to achieve or improve things, such as through anarchist principles, is no reason not to try”

          The reason not to try is that nowhere, in recorded human history has anarchy bettered the lives of humans or advanced their civilization.

          Ever. Full stop.

          • The Man They Call Zazelle September 3, 2023 at 8:35 pm #

            As I suggest previously, it’s about evolution and what who wants to achieve.

            Human evolutionary forks are going to function differently.

            It’s entirely possible that this may prove to be the currently-existing-human’s– homo-sapiens’– paradox/conundrum if they want civilization or at least civilizations of certain kinds.

            As a related aside, it may also answer the Fermi Paradox.

            Nate Hagens, if you may know of him, has suggested that we are a superorganism.
            I argue that we are almost one, but not quite.
            This is because true superorganisms are supposed to actually work for reasonable lengths of time and don’t keep collapsing, due to their ‘corruptions’, as you might write in your broad brush strokes.

            Unfortunately, civilizations, depending, may require the levels of hyperspecialization that are at fundamental odds with, at least the current, human’s individual complexity– that seems wont to go its own way (get corrupted).

            So what do ‘we’ (or at least some of us) do?

            Wait for Klaus Schwab to emerge from his volcano island lair and rescue us?

            And in the mean time, keep bitching ad nauseum behind anonymous monikers on some corners of the internet (while it lasts) as if it matters?

    • elysianfield September 3, 2023 at 12:52 pm #

      “everything that makes life without a state undesirable makes life with a state even more undesirable. ”

      Zaz,
      I would not accept that premise. Consider that the state has, and attempts to maintain, a monopoly on violence.

      Explain Haiti.

      • The Man They Call Zazelle September 3, 2023 at 8:48 pm #

        Elaborate.

        As I already wrote, you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink…

        People who want to improve things, despite the hurdles, apparent paradoxes and naysayers (anyone we know?), still might.

        Others, who feel they can’t, that it’s hopeless, well, it’s their prerogative.

        Some will simply be content to blow in the wind, and then maybe bitch about it online, cuz it feels good to rant/vent.

      One ‘benefit’ of increasing immigration numbers (assuming that’s what’s happening), along with UFO, LGBTQWERTY+, Black Lives, Women vs White Patriarchy, CovidRedux, warmongering under the pretense of peace and democracy, and other ‘distractionary issues’, is that if they increase the conditions for social strife, FUD and similar among people, people won’t likely be concerned, or as concerned, about those running the State and pulling those strings. They’ll have enough on their plates without bothering about proverbial pitchforks.
