Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been clinging to her bill of impeachment for one reason: hoping that a judge will rule to release all the evidence and depositions collected by Robert Mueller’s investigation. What’s wrong with that? Mr. Mueller failed to find any prosecutable crimes. That was the sum and substance of his two-year-long exercise in bad faith. In which case, all that material is officially and legally evidence of nothing. Impeachment is a political act and sealed evidence of nothing can’t be released to one set of political actors in a political quarrel for use as a political weapon. More to the point — and to Mrs. Pelosi’s real motive here — the material is not for impeachment but rather to use the Mueller dossier as political opposition “research” for the coming election.

There is no question that from the start of his investigation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller knew that the case was opened under false pretenses, since his very close friend, the erstwhile FBI director James Comey, also knew by early 2017 that all the predicating material was substantially false, and that it was procured by Mrs. Clinton. To carry it beyond that was a scheme by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to issue a series of “scoping” letters that increasingly widened Mr. Mueller’s purview to go fishing for crimes in every area and every chronological phase of the president’s life. That smacks of what’s known in Anglo-American law as attainder by process: first declaring someone an outlaw, and only afterward seeking a crime to justify it. Under our system, first crimes are established, then persons liable for them are brought to court to answer charges.

Of course, there’s good reason to suspect that Mr. Mueller himself was a false front for the operation conducted in his name, which was really an intrigue carried out by a claque of Democratic Party Lawfare attorneys led by Andrew Weissmann, Mr. Mueller’s chief deputy. Mr. Mueller’s testimony before two House committees last July revealed a pathetic figure who was unacquainted with the most basic pieces of his own inquiry.

The case for House members to get access to all that backstage Mueller material could go up to the Supreme Court. In the meantime, Impeachment’s second act is about to get underway whether Mrs. Pelosi likes the terms or not. It’s the Senate’s prerogative to decide. These terms appear to be exactly the same as the ones used by the Senate for Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial — which means that each side chooses a team of “managers” to present its case, and then the managers are subject to grilling by senators. The House Democrats are insisting on calling witnesses solely to maintain their court claim for testimony from the White House counsel, with which the aforesaid Mueller material is associated in the case. If the rules eschew witnesses, that case is moot, and the Democrats lose access to a trove of political oppo research obtained for them under false pretenses by their own operatives in the Department of Justice.

Secondarily, the impeachment was designed to get senators in swing states on the record voting to acquit the president in the hopes that it will somehow taint their re-election prospects and possibly flip control of the Senate to the Democrats. That outcome would above all insure that Mr. Trump could not get another Supreme Court nominee confirmed in his second term, nor continue the wholesale appointment of lesser federal district judges. Plus, of course, it would obstruct any other legislative initiative his party brought for four years.

Personally, I would miss the chance to hear from the so-called “whistleblower” who instigated the impeachment phase of the long-running coup against Mr. Trump. Contrary to the disinformation put out by The New York Times and other coup co-conspirators, the “whistleblower” enjoys no right to anonymity. It would also be satisfying to hear how his enabler, Intel Community IG Michael Atkinson, might account for the process that steered the “whistleblower” to Rep. Adam Schiff and his staff — for instance, back-dating the official documents that green-lighted the “whistleblower’s” case. Mr. Atkinson is deeply implicated himself as a player in the earlier 2017 RussiaGate FISA court mischief, since his previous job was agency counsel to DOJ National Security chief John Carlin, who signed off on fraudulent FISA warrants. Mr. Atkinson must have counseled Mr. Carlin to do that. Testimony from Mr. Schiff about the “whistleblower” process would also be edifying. Senators would surely get to see Mr. Atkinson’s so-far-withheld deposition transcript from the House Intel Committee hearings of November. It might establish grounds for Mr. Schiff’s expulsion from the House of Representatives as a serial liar, a salutary measure to restore a sense of legitimacy in American affairs.

If witnesses were allowed in the Senate trial phase of impeachment, the president’s team could haul in scores of former and current government officials implicated in the seditious activities against him to testify. The nation would be well-served and enlightened. The only question is whether their testimony might queer the actual criminal cases pending against them outside the impeachment circus.

Note: In an earlier release, I misidentified Rod Rosenstein as Acting FBI Director in 2017.  That has been corrected to Deputy Attorney General.

    Impeachment is like a two week old Thanksgiving turkey – it’s gone stale, and no one wants it anymore.

  2. shotho January 10, 2020 at 10:09 am #

    It seems to me that Ms. Pelosi’s strategy is to prolong this process as long as possible in order for Democratic candidates to be able to say that the Senate trial was not fair, so that Trump’s acquittal Is spurious.

    • Rodster January 10, 2020 at 10:48 am #

      I take the side of JHK. This circus is nothing more than to throw shit at the ceiling and walls of Trump’s reelection process because the Democrats don’t have a candidate that can beat him in 2020.

      As much as they hate Trump ( I didn’t vote for him) they don’t have a fighting chance to beat him. I like Tulsi Gabbard because she stands for peace, not war. But she won’t make it because the DNC, hates her too.

      • wet dog January 10, 2020 at 11:11 am #

        I agree with you, Rodster. Tulsi is the only one out of this lot who stands for peace and could beat Trump. Though Sanders has an outside chance of winning, as so many people are seeing their parents get old and sick, and are scared about the medical costs coming their way, of losing their homes for the cost.

        If Tulsi or Sanders say they will cut the War department budget by 50% and put all that money into rehab and old care homes, they could easily win. Of course, the Fed would then instantly crash the economy to show who really runs this mess. But that’s coming no matter, so why not give the hurtin’ folks a little help before the implosion?

        The rest of this gang will get destroyed by Trump. Biden, Warren, Bloomie. They’ll be trolled into the ground.

          How about a deal that cuts the young of America in on Federal goodies. Cut Defense and “intelligence” spending to $200bln. Then pour half into “rehab and old care homes,” which will provide no benefits to the non-elderly population except for the workers in them, and half into some long-lasting infrastructure like JHK’s railroads. Amtrak says it would cost $150billion to build high-speed rail between Boston and DC. That might benefit the young for 50 years.

          • ellipsis January 10, 2020 at 11:57 am #

            And Amtrak is a joke. $150 billion. Who came up with such a moronic number? But when the shit goes down, there isn’t gonna be a need for no DC-Boston railroad. Those areas will be the “wild zones”.

          Exactly how any people have lost their homes due to paying their medical bills? Be specific, please

          • oryoki January 12, 2020 at 4:08 pm #

            “Exactly” and “specific” would require data to be separated that just can’t be separated. Family unit debt if fungible so it is beyond the pale to expect to keep and analyze for your political purposes.

            “The debate over medical expense bankruptcy will continue to have a place on political platforms, around dinner tables, and in academia for the foreseeable future. Politicians will continue to spin the numbers to work for the votes they need. What is undeniable, however, is that a vast number of people are influenced by medical expenses to file for bankruptcy in America.“ https://www.thebalance.com/medical-bankruptcy-statistics-4154729

            “ We need a reformed system with the following patient-centric features:
            Promotes price transparency – so that providers and patients can clearly know what medical services and products cost, whether they are covered and patients’ cost- sharing requirements;
            Delineates patient, provider and payer responsibility – so that all parties know how best to access the right treatment protocols and obtain optimal reimbursement; Provides homeowner protections – so that patients and their families do not lose their homes simply because a family member becomes gravely ill;
            Protects family members and other caregivers – so that a patient’s misfortune does not ravage an entire family financially; and
            Provides fairness and equity in credit rating – so that the credit worthiness of patients and their families are not inappropriately harmed and that medical debt is recognized as unique among other types of debt.” https://www.npaf.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Medical-Debt-White-Paper.pdf

          There is no such thing as ‘intelligent in a productive sense’. You mix up morality with intelligence. Macchiavelli was intelligent, and so was Ted Bundy.

    The impeachment machinations are meant to prevent President Trump from nominating new conservative Supreme Court judges in the likely event its dying commie members will soon die.

    The hope is, that through the impeachment process President Trump will lack “legitimacy”, so proclaimed by the Vatican/CIA propaganda outlets, and thus be prevented from doing his job long enough for new elections to take place. The Vatican mafia plans to win these elections via massive voter fraud, through the issuance of ID cards via its State agents to illegal Catholic migrants from Latin America. The Vatican/CIA mafia MSM propaganda outlets are silent on the issue of these ID cards, hoping it will go unnoticed under the radar.

    • Nightowl January 10, 2020 at 11:17 am #

      The strategy is simple. Hold the articles and continue to add more phony charges that will never be backed with any evidence.

      Avoid a trial in the senate and use the corporate media to parrot related talking points in the hope that this damages Trump in 2020.

      There is nothing else they can do. The corporate media remains one of the greatest threats to our system, as without it, none of this would have been possible.

      Reinstating the ban on domestic propaganda in Smith-Mundt (which Obama reversed shortly before leaving office) would be an excellent start.

    • SW January 10, 2020 at 11:27 am #

      I don’t think Nancy’s working for the Vatican, just herself and to keep a death grip on the Democratic party. I agree that they’d like illegals to vote b/c they correctly assume it would be for them but I don’t think religion has anything to do with it.

      It’s all a game to the them I think. We (taxpayers/voters) are just life-support so they can remain in power — need proof? What’s actually been done to help the majority of citizens, Democrat, Republican, straight, gay, black, white, Latino? Pretty close to zip. And that’s true for both parties. Name one institution in America that’s going well — medical? education? military? environmental? transportation? quality of life for most Americans? Nope. Debt peonage is a reality now and we haven’t even seen the worst of it. A Harvard study estimated 45,000 people die every year b/c of lack of medical care for treatable illnesses.

      I understand the impeachment process is important and the participants should be exposed and punished and that it’s crucial to the rule of law. I just don’t think it’s going to happen.

      • akmofo January 10, 2020 at 11:46 am #

            Selected individual “Jews” are promoted and used as the Vatican’s storefront manikins for the Vatican propaganda outlets to constantly highlight and point at and scapegoat, and thus hide and distract from the real criminal enterprise that is the Vatican mafia.

            To the extent the Vatican is still Catholic, it has little power. To the extent (overwhelming) it has been infiltrated by the Masons, Satanists, Jews, and Homosexuals – it has great power. In other words, their power, the power of the coalition of alien elements.

            Latin American Liberation Theology has born strange fruit. The Coalition seems to have a scheme to use Ecology and Amazonian/Incan occultism is to creat a New World Religion out of the ashes of what was once the Faith.

          I don’t know what diseases specifically but probably the usual culprits of diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiac problems and some forms of cancer. And not all the people who suffer with these cause the condition. Do bad habits and obesity add to the problem? Yes but who’s profiting off our industrial food industry? Not the people with these diseases. While the government reports low inflation numbers, anyone who buys real groceries and cooks knows the price of healthy food vs frozen pizza has gone up a lot. It’s not an easy explanation just to blame the patients or to completely let them off the hook either. Simple, basic health care where a person could take a 10 cent pill for high blood pressure, live in a walkable community and eat locally grown food would go a long way toward a solution.

        I also noticed that the “Justice” Department finished their “investigation” of Hillary Clinton with no charges.

        How on Earth can there be a thorough “investigation” of Hillary Clinton especially with all The Clinton Foundation fraud PLUS everything she was involved in with servergate and now the whole DNC paid for Dossier etc.

        And one of the most important defendants in US history who had a history of trying to kill himself is left unguarded for 12 hours and was most likely murdered and all Barr can say is, “It was a perfect storm of screw-ups”???

        We have NO criminal justice system in the United States, especially for the rich and well-connected.

    I listened to Tulsi this AM. What a Democratic lackey. It was certain she had her AM briefing from the DNC on what to say today. Her highlight was saying that the Iran-Ukraine plane that was shot down was Trump’s fault because of the war like condition in the area. I one missile strike, the Iranians shot down a year’s worth of innocent citizens. Good job. If I ever had a good thought about her, forget it. She is just another liberal doofus unable to think on her own.

    All you scaredy cats about Iran, they missed everything, four of 15 missiles failed, and their air traffic control was so stupid, it did not even know the difference between an American jet and a Ukrainian airliner. The only reason to fear these losers is if you are flying within a hundred miles of their border in a commercial jet.

    Another winner this AM. DOJ is clearing HRC of any crimes during the election run up. I totally am not surprised. Everything she is accused of was standard operating procedure for the people in the in crowd around Obama at the time. The Deep State worked on the principles that she, Obama, Bill, Jeff Epstein, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch held dear at that time. They, the in-crowd used their modus operandi as the pattern to attack Trump before and after the election. Do what you know best. Trump was not in the in-crowd and was not privy to a lot of the corruption going on, and was blind sided by what the Deep State had been doing. His early staffing mistakes, like Sessions, probably tie into this ignorance. Anyway, the Deep State wins another one.

    JHK alluded to the idea that the idea of the delays is to make tenuous GOP senators vote and then try to regain the Senate. Heard the same thing yesterday. Makes sense. Seems to me if the GOP, Trump style, is serious, they will put campaign money into bolstering these close races. Trump is sorta being acknowledged a shoo-in.

    One more. Anybody consider that the whistleblower is just a myth. Why does everyone think he exists? Something I haven’t heard. Is he or she just a figment of the mind of Schiff, Pelosi and Nadler to kick off the impeachment process? Is this the great secret they have been hiding, that the basis for the “great crimes” is a total fabrication? That the whole Democratic Party is God’s ironic joke on the American people. ????

      Of course we believe you! But exactly how many American service families were notified of a loved one’s death from a helicopter crash or in a Baghdad traffic pileup last week. Did your ‘source’ give you any numbers?

        I suspect this is closer to the truth.

        Iran appears to have fired the missiles into vacant areas where they were unlikely to cause significant harm, according to a U.S. official who was not authorized to speak publicly. The attack, the official said, was designed mainly for a domestic audience to show Iranians that the regime was responding to the killing last week of Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani.

        Or this could be deliberate disinfo and a comfortable patriotic lie. Who’s to know? Not you and that’s for sure.

It’s not hard too see how fatigued everyone must be given the length of time that has passed. One feels sorry for the american public.
    On another note, the rapidity with which photos were produced showing the missile shoot down of the Ukrainian airliner on Iranian (very hostile) territory versus no such photos being brought forward when Malaysian Flight 72 was shot down over Ukraine is quite interesting. We all know who has the capacity to produce such evidence and the lack of it for Flight 72 shows reluctance fueled by an attempt to cover for the western backed side.

    However, Australia was known as dry continent before, 80 % of it is dead outback, and the global warming does not ignite woods.

      Going to Debka myself:

      Head of the Revolutionary Guards Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said on Thursday that the missile attack on American bases in neighboring Iraq was only the start of a series of attacks that will take place across the entire region. Satellite photos of the damage to the US Al-Asad Airbase in western Iraq showed at least five structures, including hangars and buildings, “hit hard” by the Iranian ballistic missiles launched on Wednesday. “Some of the locations struck look like the missiles hit dead center,” said one analyst, confirming advances made in the upgrading of Iran’s missiles for improved precision.

      If Iranian’s are Bozos then limiting ‘executive response time‘ would be smart. If Iran can hit ’empty’ buildings as described with accuracy then limiting ‘executive response time‘ would be prudent.

      But limiting the presidents ability to murder from the air is not going to happen and that is the end of that story.

          If 90% of the fires were started by ‘Muzzie boys’, then it is good that we should know this. For now it’s a moot point, but we just don’t know. But it changes nothing with regard to the point that matters, which is that climate change is increasing the periods and places where tinder-dry land is susceptible to less controllable fires, whether started by ‘yoofs’, daft picnickers, or by self-generated lightning or fire tornadoes from existing smoke columns

          https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-11-28/bushfire-storms-can-spark-fire-tornadoes-dry-lightning-and-more/10561832

          And it’s going to get worse, since we have decades of the effects of today’s CO2 already baked in.

          Jihadi arsonists need to be dealt with, as do other arsonists, if they can be found. But allegations, assumptions and internet memes should involve the same standard of evidence as for the other arsonists.

            Zionism is a religious/political philosophy shared by both Christian and Jewish alike, which should hardly be a surprise, since one is the once heretical offshoot of the other.

            The Evangelicals Who Pray for War With Iran

            Mike Pence and Mike Pompeo, who urged Trump to kill Qassem Soleimani, are ardent proponents of Christian Zionism.

            By SARAH POSNER
            January 9, 2020

            Last Friday, a day after Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani and nine others were killed in a U.S. drone strike in Iraq, the Christian Zionist advocacy group Christians United for Israel emailed its millions of supporters to praise President Trump’s move. “This Decisive Action Will Save Countless Lives,” read the subject line, echoing the assessment delivered that morning by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Fox and Friends. The bombing showed that Trump would take “swift and decisive” action to protect Americans, Pompeo had told the president’s favorite morning news program. Vice President Mike Pence later claimed that Americans are “safer today.”

            Pompeo and Pence reportedly were the top officials pushing Trump to kill Soleimani. They’re also devout evangelicals and major allies of CUFI. This is not a coincidence. While the organization is best known for its unflagging “support” for Israel—that is, for Israel’s expansion of settlements in the occupied West Bank and protracted erasure of the possibility of a future Palestinian state—it has, since its founding in 2006, depicted Iran as an existential threat to Israel. The group opposed President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, denouncing it as “dangerous for Israel, the United States and the entire world,” and in the Trump administration, CUFI has found hope for a more bellicose posture.

            If the ‘other guy’ hadn’t been killed, the books they wrote about him wouldn’t even exist and neither would the belief system they wrapped around him. So (a) logically they should be at least neutral on the point, if not grateful, (b) It Was Foretold that it was going to happen, so they were just doing their job, and (c) anyone who equates ‘those guys’ with anyone around today has to have a screw loose.

So (a) logically they should be at least neutral on the point, if not grateful, (b) It Was Foretold that it was going to happen, so they were just doing their job, and (c) anyone who equates ‘those guys’ with anyone around today has to have a screw loose.

            Alba,
            At what point can or will you call people who believe in various religions completely “logical”? belief is more often borne of emotive fervor…administered AT their mother’s knee when very young.

            Consider that the dominant culture in Europe for many, many generations, was driven by Christianity, in all of it’s iterations, and that the dogma of those ages was simple…Christ was a good guy, and the Jews killed him.

            akmofo asked for an ostensible reason for the hate. I give you one that you dismiss outright.

            When we were children, those in the USA believed in Santa, the Easter Bunny, The tooth fairy, the boogeyman….

            Some adults find early lessons comforting…except for the boogeyman thing…which is the only real specter of the bunch. You are dismissive of that lesson which might, in some small part, be cause for enmity.

            Is the “Christ Killer thing” a dumb reason? Of course, and without argument. Could it be a component of the answer akmofo requested? Possibly, and this I will argue.

            A final point…”If the ‘other guy’ hadn’t been killed, the books they wrote about him wouldn’t even exist and neither would the belief system they wrapped around him.”

            Alba,
            Another thought. The Jews have been pilloried for two centuries. Why? Has there been a thread of dialog that has mirrored that period other than what I offer?

            I would like you to offer another explanation for the issue….

            Please.

            “akmofo asked for an ostensible reason for the hate. I give you one that you dismiss outright.”

            I think you have misread my point, EF (for which I may possibly take the blame). I am not dismissing the explanation at all.

            As a young’un taken to church every week for years and years I had never heard the ‘Christ-killing Jews’ trope in all that time. Jews seemed to be kind of referred to as our cousins – they had the old covenant and we had the new one, but we were all family. The killers and those who pushed them were individuals, not people whose descendants could be blamed for their actions.

            I only came across the ‘C-KJ’ trope as an adult or near-adult, with more intellectual exposure to the history of the Catholic Church, where the trope seems to have – or have had – more sway.

            So I am not in any way suggesting the trope, in itself, has not given rise, to a significant degree, to the longstanding animosity. My explanation was merely meant to indicate that its reasoning is utterly stupid, on which point I don’t think we particularly disagree, unless I misunderstand you.

            The unreasoning animosity had a few positive feedback loops, like early prohibitions on Jews doing certain jobs, which then pushed them towards others, for which they were then vilified.

            That’s the way unreasoning prejudice works.

            And you are disingenuous when you ask about Germans and Irish in congress. These people do not actually have dual citizenship with their home nations, do they?

            @sophia

            The Vatican is Rome. Its empire is dead. Its language is dead. Its god-Caesars are dead. Its Cathedrals are empty museum spaces. Its culture is failed and collapsed. Everything that they are is corruption and death.

            This is what Janos Skorenzy wrote to me the other day and it summarizes perfectly what they are all about: “You could have enslaved the Malagassy or genocided them or confined them to reservations.” This is their thinking about life and other human beings. This is their whole culture and history — mass theft mass enslavement mass deception and mass murder.

            Simply by existing and thriving, Israel is a living testament to the lifeforce and vitality of righteousness of YHVH, while these Roman Satanists die off and disappear into garbage bin of history.

          • akmofo January 10, 2020 at 10:02 pm #

            @sophia

            I’ve already addressed the false claim of dual citizenship. The people listed are American Jews and some are not even Jewish but supporters of Israel I presume. Very few if any of these people lived in Israel, so they would not have Israeli citizenship.

            But again, it is a question of selective discrimination against Jews, because there are others with real dual citizenship and real dual loyalties and they are never mentioned or questioned. It’s always about “DA JOOS”.

          • sophia January 11, 2020 at 1:01 pm #

            akmofo,

            The 7th Day Adventists are the group that is most keenly against the Vatican that I have met, thus my question. Now, it appears you are Jewish and your hatred of the Vatican is … unusual.

            I think your argument is very weak that Israel stands out as a falsification of the Roman church. Any thriving people would be in a similar relation. Most Jews are not even religious.

            Me, I blame the Hebrews for the awful infection of the western world with their god. It has poisoned Christianity and probably Islam. I feel bad about it, and I think that sincere Jews have done a fair job of having a viable spiritual life despite their god being an imposter and a very negative one at that. But there have also been many Catholic saints and I think they manage to progress spiritually more in spite of their religion than because of it.
            Of course, I don’t really blame the Hebrews. It’s just unfortunate that some bronze age scrolls got preserved and people clung to it. Negative memes are often very sticky in the psyche.

            Now, in your comment about Janos, are you saying he is a Catholic?
            He suggested a different homeland, and that you could have taken Madagascar? It’s a valid complaint (without the genocide). You could have taken Oregon. For example. But that will leave you cold as you seem to be a believer and only Israel will do. I have sympathy, but if you are humanitarian, how do you justify the treatment of the Palestinians? And Israel was not taken by religious Jews at all, Which means they don’t actually believe that God ever gave their ancestors that land.
            But they did it roughly, not kindly.

            As for the duals, that is important if true because it means I believed a lie. But I don’t think there are a significant number of people in congress with real dual citizenship, and certainly not 1/6th or so of the entire congress with one nationality.

            I would be less concerned if the influence from Israel were not so great. We can criticize Roman Catholicism till the cows come home, but try it with Israel.

  19. beantownbill. January 10, 2020 at 12:35 pm #

    Global warming: the NOAA published its State of the Climate – Global Climate Report for July, 2019, in August. In July, 2019 global land and surface temperature departure from average was the highest for July since global records began in 1880.

    Nine of the ten warmest July’s have have occurred since 2005. 2019 marked the 43rd consecutive July and the 415th consecutive month with temperatures above the 20th century average.Africa had its warmestJuly on record. July 2019 marked Europe’s 23rd consecutive July with above-average temperatures. On July 25th Paris’s high temperature reached 108.7 degrees, it’s highest temperature ever. None, Alaska hit 90 degrees on July 4th for the first time.

    Iceland’s Vatnajokull glacier has been shrinking year by year, so much so that the earth’s crust is rising from the sea, draining fjords, shifting sediments and twisting sewer pipes (NY TImes, August 12).

    Arguments have been made that their has always been climate change periods in the past. These changes have been local or regional, but not global. Today’s warming is global, affecting 98% of the globe. Journalists have focused on stories that show direct, local effects on individual lives, but not on what is happening globally.

    I have taken the above from the November-December 2019 issue of the Skeptical Inquirer, pages 10-13. Due to obvious space limitations, I did not copy the entire article, particularly with references..
    You can read it yourself in the magazine. The upshot is that global warming is in fact occurring. I’m not stating my opinion, just facts. If you don’t want to believe in global warming, you have a closed mind, or have a personal bias, for whatever reason.

    • axisboldaslove January 10, 2020 at 1:39 pm #

Before you jump to conclusions, why don’t you read the article, and if you still think the information it contains is a lie, attack the authors, not me.

          Are you claiming there are millions of climate scientists or just millions of scientists of all stripes, like mathematicians, physicists, astronomers, biologists, etc.? If the former, you are not thinking clearly, and if the latter, how do you know their opinions on this matter?

          I don’t think this is true at all. (That 98% of the globe has warmed.) You listen to one-sided reporting you will certainly get a lopsided impression.
          But to say warming or cooling has never happened to the whole globe before? This globe is in an ice age. The warming when the last glaciation ended was world wide.
          Your side says the Medieval warm period was local, but that’s damage control. Besides, there have been several global warming periods during this interglacial.

          By the way, what would be the cause of a local warming?

          • capt spaulding January 10, 2020 at 9:06 pm #

            The difference this time around, Sophia, is that the warming has been attributed to human beings rather than as a by product of natural occurrences. The conditions that contribute to global warming are caused by overpopulation, and the subsequent overuse of natural resources. Ignore it at your peril.

            No need to reply to me – I didn’t publish the article or take part in the exchange. 🙂

            Detailed objections or questions should be addressed to the authors (scientists) and I’ll be happy to read their responses to you second hand. I trust you to be honest. The exchange takes place in normal everyday English that anyone can understand, even the person who claims it’s all above his head, despite him being so much cleverer than people who don’t find it a problem.

            My overall opinion, which I know I don’t adhere to practically, is that deniers (in this context anyway) should probably be left to deny – in harmony and building to an emotionally satisfying crescendo if they enjoy it – just as you should merely smile patiently and beatifically at someone trying to persuade you to read The Watchtower and wish them a nice day, rather than try to engage with them, because it’s pointless and you know it’s pointless (which makes it a travesty of normal human communication). Just mentally file your nails or something.

            My dad, who died long before normal people had heard of anthropogenic climate change, used to be fond of saying ‘a man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still’.

            Quite. And the significant word here is ‘will’, because deniers continue to deny because of their ‘will’, so you will not – ever – get them to acknowledge the validity of evidence. That, as I’ve said before, is the difference between a sceptic and a denier. Scientists are sceptics – that’s their job. The role of the everyday denier requires no training, reading, exams, insight, evidence, peer-review, perspective or humility. Pure Dunning-Kruger.

            And I know the above is a bit flippant. It’s flippancy born of exasperation. I need to stop worrying about people believing what they want to believe. It’s the human default.

          • sophia January 11, 2020 at 12:38 pm #

            Captain Spaulding,

            Yes, ‘attributed to.’ But he said it had never happened before. I like a bit more accuracy. Of course, if the narrative is true, the fact that humans are causing it is very significant.

            Green Alba,

            I shall try to have a look at your link.
            You are wrong about something, Green Alba. You say to be a denier requires no reading. But on the contrary, I beg people to read a bit so they can actually try to respond to why I don’t find the ‘science’ credible. They won’t. I’ve had the same problem with Darwinists. They won’t even read the articles they are using to bolster their arguments.

            You say deniers deny because of their will. I agree that most people choose what to believe first and figure out how to justify it second. But that would apply to you as well as me. In my case, I think I am just the sort to buy into something like climate change as I tend to be pretty strongly in favor of preserving the environment and I worry about many modern trends and other environmental issues. It just to happens that I read a lot and I have read enough to satisfy me that it is nonsense.

            A lot of what you say, though, strikes me as such boilerplate that it does not seem to come from real consideration, but rather that you want to follow a certain demographic. At no time have I ever seen you engage with an open mind on this topic. Thus, the ‘ad hominem’ that you accused me of a couple of weeks ago.

        If the warming is caused by human activity, it’s at least theoretically possible to halt it, but if something else is causing it, we probably just have to ride it out – unless the endpoint is a Venus-like climate. In which case we’ll be toast, literally and figuratively.

        I question whether there has been any real warming at all. It has gotten more and more corrupt and they are becoming more desperate as more and more intelligent voices are spreading the word about the holes in the theory, and because of that and the general corruption of science, it appears to me that even their data is now suspect.
        It would be a more believable theory if they were not infected with the (all too human) intense desire to win at all costs. They always present the data in the most alarming way possible. One of the latest ploys is to constantly harp on the idea that the warming is actually worse and going faster than predicted, even though the reality is that the predictions and models were incorrect, in the direction of predicting too much.

        When they tell people loudly that such and such a year was the warmest on record, why don’t they give the caveat that, although worrying, it was only by 4 100ths of a degree, and therefore well within the margin of error? See, that is a lie by omission.

        Another thing they do is trumpet loudly the heat waves but are silent on the many, many, many reports or record snowfall, record cold, record late melting of winter ice, record cold weather and snow in areas which rarely get it, and so on. How am I to have confidence in the theory when it needs to be propped up with such an obvious skewing of facts?

        I mean, why is it so east to lie to people?

    for a working class person to be called smart is anything but a compliment . It is instead the kiss of death.

    I’ve lost track, what’s this impeachment all about anyway? I’ve forgotten, did Trump ask the Ukrainians to look into what exactly the fuck is going on with the son of an American Vice-President sitting on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company? Did Trump ask to know why that same American VP demanded the squelching of a Ukrainian investigation of said gas company on pain of losing American aid? Because these circumstances smell fishy to say the least so I don’t know about anyone else, but I’d sure like to know what’s up. 

    The oft-made claim is that Trump is up to his nuts in corrupt steppe-dwellers. OK, let’s look at a few things: 

    * Horn-dog Bill accepted fat speaking fees from a Kremlin-connected Russian bank while Hill was Sec of State

    * Hill’s and Bill’s – cough – charitable foundation accepted megabucks from investors in that deal for the Uranium One purchase. The buyers were Russians. The deal required State Dept approval while Hill was boss there. The State Dept approved the deal. 

    * John Podesta sat on a board of directors of a company with Russian investors one of which was Vladimir Putin 

    * a Russian bank had a lobbying contract with Podesta Group (owned by Tony Podesta) 

    So, who exactly is up to their crack in Russians? Nothing to see here? Lots and lots and lots to see here. Tons of Kremlin cash, finding its way to powerful and connected Americans. Nothing to it?

    But this isn’t corruption, nope, we have it on good authority. So if this isn’t, then what is it? Maybe these are the ways of people far superior to us, who fly at too high an altitude for us to understand. So maybe this impeachment is just Lysol to suppress the smell? But don’t get too far over your skis because we’ve been told, nothing to see here, move along.

      The Man Who Would be King

      Short story by Rudyard Kipling, based upon an American from Philadelphia named Josiah Harland, who in the 1830s actually travelled to Afghanistan with the aim of becoming King. He didn’t make King but he became a high ranking prince. Some people stay home and play it safe, others take a risk and strive for greater things.

    The trouble with Washington is that far too much power has been aggregated at the federal level. This accumulation of power attracts the sociopaths and psychopaths among the general population like ants to a leaky bag of sugar.

    All the worse people are drawn to politics, and soon, thanks to self-serving legislation and deal-making amongst themselves, sociopathy in government service becomes entrenched and the apparent norm.

    Evidence of this blatant sociopathy has never been more obvious: the shameless lying, the endless projection, the unbelievable gaslighting, and the remorselessness when being caught red-handed in criminal activity.

    Soon, these activities spread to the borderline cases among the rest of the population, e.g., the media, relatives of the politically connected, and tools like Jussie Smollett.

    To date, there has never been clearer evidence of the need to keep the federal government small and well within it’s defined constitutional limits if for no other reason than to encourage the sociopaths to find another line of work.

      The general US population is rather corrupt now. In my spare time, I like to watch these YouTube videos of “Retired” white blokes who have “Retired” overseas. A typical profile is the old divorced white bloke who is largely without any savings, but who gets a monthly Social Security check. He often has a few kids in the US and at least one ex-wife in the US; sometimes multiple ex-wives and kids. Since their Social Security checks don’t go very far in the US (or Australia), they run off to either a third world Latin American country or an Asian country where everything is much cheaper and start a new life in retirement. For some of these single blokes, it basically means hanging out in girlie bars. For other blokes, it means marrying a local girl in her 20’s and popping out a couple of local kids. I guess that it makes sense?

      Most of these old blokes seem to do ok, while others flounder if circumstances change to their detriment as, for example, when the currency exchange rate disadvantages them and/ or their respective countries change the visa rules to try to squeeze out less affluent “Retirees”.

      Anyway, after listening to most of these blokes, they seem to lead somewhat pointless lives of aimless consumption, but, nevertheless feel better off as their dollars go further overseas.

      There will probably be a huge wave of such old white Baby Boomers flocking overseas in the next decade to “Retire”, which sucks, as it will create friction in some of these target counties.

    A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

    https://www.marketwatch.com/story/worlds-largest-asset-manager-blackrock-joins-41-trillion-climate-change-investing-pact-2020-01-09

    “BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager with more than $6.8 trillion under its control, becomes the latest signatory to Climate Action 100+, an influential big-money pact that’s pushing — although with spotty results so far — many of the world’s largest greenhouse-gas emitters to take action on man-made climate change.

    “BlackRock joins more than 370 global investors, including pension giant CalPERS and HSBC Global Asset Management, already participating in the initiative, which aims to sway companies ranging from fossil-fuel producers to consumer-product conglomerates to be carbon neutral by 2050. With BlackRock on board, total assets under management represented by Climate Action 100+ now top $41 trillion.”

Last fall Dutch farmers shut down the Netherlands for a week for the same reason. Wait until the first governor of a northern state — Wisconsin or Maine or Michigan — tries to ban the importation of natgas and No. 2 heating oil, “to keep the temp below 1.5°C within the next century” and people begin freezing to death in their homes in January?

            You’re going to die anyway, eventually whether you take the treatment or not. Just like the oil’s going to run out eventually and you can shout all you like and tell the empty oil wells and petrol pumps you won’t stand for it. When there’s no oil you might wish you’d got something to keep the worst at bay for a few more years. Basically all you’re doing is giving preference to one set of years against another set of years and hoping, probably, that you’ll be gone before the second set of years arrives. Kids be damned. And while you’re at it making the weather more extreme so that your insurance will cost you more. For as long as there are any insurance companies.

            See, I can accept your point of view that the climate hopefuls can go f*ck themselves because my heating and my car. It’s a point of view. It merits sympathy even. But you don’t need to slander climate scientists to make that point. Or oncologists. They’re just telling you how it is. They can’t make you do anything about it. It may be the case that we all can’t significantly do anything about it. But at least get pissed off at the right set of people. Because honesty matters. And a society that throws away the truth because it doesn’t like the consequences will get other consequences it won’t like.

            The set of people to get pissed off at would include everybody everywhere who’s pissed the oil away without a thought for tomorrow, when things could have been set up differently from the start.

            Ooooh look, magic black goo that works miracles!

            Said everyone.

            Wait a minute, before we build everything around it and piss it away by selling it for less than milk, so that every individual person can have their own personal metal raincoat on wheels and work tens of miles from where they work every day, do we think it’s going to last forever, like things generally don’t? Or should we create towns and systems NOW that help us carry on when it’s gone.

            Said nobody.

            But let’s blame the climate scientists. B*st*rds. I bet some of them even have cars. How dare they?

            Hey, BackRowHeckler: Dunno if you’ve heard about it, but there’s a plan for addressing all that stuff you’re raving and drooling about. It’s called the Green New Deal. It’s a plan for redirecting all the misdirected and wasted resources of the current dispensation for the exact purpose of making sure people aren’t left freezing in the dark when the SHTF.

            Look, we all know you’re alienated and nihilistic and just itching to see your frustrations explode in an orgy of redemptive violence. There’s plenty of those dark psychic forces at work nowadays, especially here at CFN. I urge you to calm down. Smoke a doobie (is it legal where you live yet?). Remember that life is a gift, and hope is a choice. Peace, brother.

            He didn’t slander climate scientists. He said they are corrupt. Hmm. Are they?

            “In your first paragraph there to BRH, the comparison is not apt; it is a non sequitur.”

            In this case it was merely a light-hearted analogy. Not peer reviewed.

            “He didn’t slander climate scientists. He said they are corrupt. Hmm. Are they?”

            You are merely making a suggestion, sophia. If you have concrete evidence that they are largely corrupt, you should have presented that, instead of the suggestion. But if brh says climate scientists are corrupt, he is slandering them. Until he proves otherwise.

            “But it CAN be a bit of an indication of the general rottenness of the whole narrative.”

            Only in your mind. Again, you are guilty of suggestion, following your own prejudices. If someone wants to make money from pushing electric cars, and electric cars lessen respiratory disease, the evidence on respiratory disease is in no way compromised.

            BackRowHeckler: “that’s what it going to take [i.e. gulags] to enforce your lefty green/red mandates.”

            Uh, the United States is hardly a stranger to open-air gulags, BRH:

            – The concentration camps (often euphemized as ‘internment camps’) in which some 120,000 Japanese-Americans were involuntarily held from 1942-1946.
            – The infamous tent city jail operated in Maricopa County, AZ under sheriff Joe Arpaio.
            – The Guantanamo Bay detention camp. Home of torture and indefinite detention, GTMO is a recognized, ongoing human-rights violation by the U.S. government which is still up and running as of today’s date.

            Looking over that list, one thing that’s hard to miss is that none of those past examples were ever applied to real people (i.e. white Americans). Is that what you’re afraid of? That having unleashed hell on people you don’t like, you’ll see it turned against you next? Nonsense. There was plenty of answer to that question in the berniesanders.com website had you bothered to read it. Quote:

            “The renewable energy generated by the Green New Deal will be publicly owned, managed by the Federal Power Marketing Administrations, the Bureau of Reclamation and the Tennessee Valley Authority and sold to distribution utilities with a preference for public power districts, municipally- and cooperatively-owned utilities with democratic, public ownership, and other existing utilities that demonstrate a commitment to the public interest.”

            “[W]e will provide $150 billion in infrastructure grants and technical assistance for municipalities and states to build publicly owned and democratically controlled, co-operative, or open access broadband networks.”

            “The goals and outcomes of the Green New Deal should continue to be developed under the Jemez Principles for Democratic Organizing with strong and consistent consultation with the communities most affected by the currently unequal enforcement of environmental laws.” (My emphasis – EH.)

            Believe it, don’t believe it, whatever. But you could be doing everyone a favour and actually informing yourself about these things, BRH, instead of making me do it for you.

            Alright Elrond, you put a lot of thought into that post …

    Don’t you think that it’s a bit weird that the Americans refer to something that they intensely desire and covet as “Weed”?

    In agricultural societies, a Weed is something bad and pernicious and a constant annoyance that a diligent farmer must be vigilant against. A “Weed” is something to be aggressively extirpated from the garden. Right?

      Weed is aptly named. All kinds of studies out now showing its ill effects on human health.

      • Pucker January 10, 2020 at 6:43 pm #

        Apart from damage to the lungs from smoking Weed, what are the other harmful effects of Weed?

        Jordan Peterson in his book “The 12 Rules of Life”, says that Weed can be either good or bad depending upon the user. But he only gives negative examples of Canadian “Stoners”, and he gives no example of a person who has benefited from using Weed.

        • ellipsis January 10, 2020 at 7:02 pm #

          Weed defies the capitalist ethos of WORK HARDER, LONGER, AND BETTER (so the capitalists can duly steal the profits of your labor), so it will always be reviled. And “studies?” For crying out loud, I can’t believe anyone seriously quotes studies about anything! Studies say anything you want them to, depending on who’s paying the freight.

            Studies aside, it gave me hardcore panic attacks when I used it briefly.

            Studies are certainly manipulated or cherry picked in a variety of areas, but I have never seen any good come from weed in my personal life.

          • ellipsis January 11, 2020 at 6:10 am #

            Socialist ethos in an “ideal” world? Take care of one another. It answers the biblical question “Are we our brothers’ keeper?” in the affirmative. Admittedly, that would be in an ideal world, which even a cursory examination reveals we don’t currently have.

            Secondarily it might be: learn to be happy with what you have and stop greedily piling up more. Your riches should be reflected in your own and those around you’s mental, physical, and spiritual well-being, and not in your material possessions.

            That said, as Vince Lombardi once said (I’m paraphrasing), “Only by relentlessly pursuing perfection, knowing full well that we’ll never achieve it, will we eventually achieve excellence.” Pursuing greed, avarice, enmity, and personal exaltation through unbridled capitalism is exactly the opposite of that. The evidence is pervasive and incontrovertible.

        • Robert White January 11, 2020 at 5:40 pm #

          I have benefitted from getting stoned on weed whilst I listen to music instead of Jordan Peterson on TVO. TVO is the only station that would have him on aside from maybe CBC.

      Love is the most constructive force in the universe. I’ve always thought there’s only 2 forces in the cosmos, love and fear. Every other emotion is a variation of the two.

      • ellipsis January 10, 2020 at 6:55 pm #

        You’ve no doubt thought that because you’ve either read or been exposed to the many “New Age” texts which trumpet it. It’s true, but the word love has been so polluted by modern concepts that it’s hardly useful any more. Agape is much more accurate substitute, although most people would look at you cross-eyed and simply reply “huh?” if you used it. That said, discussing deep philosophical concepts with 99.9% of Muricans is sure to elicit either a yawn or a quick change of subject in the first place, so why bother? Religious dogma on the other hand…

        • beantownbill. January 10, 2020 at 10:29 pm #

          You’re right, agape is a more accurate word, but most people have no idea of what I might be talking about, so I have gotten used to using “love”. I’m not a new-ager, but some of their concepts I agree with. I do believe most aspects of life begin with philosophy. It is the mother of science.

      • Pucker January 10, 2020 at 7:49 pm #

        Freud defines “Love” as dependence.

        Women generally think of “Love” as an emotional feeling of security provided by the Man. This kind of “Love” can easily morph into “Slavery” through dependence on the State. Women perhaps should not be allowed to vote?

        • Pucker January 10, 2020 at 8:12 pm #

          It was typically Women in the Native American tribes who put pressure on the male Chiefs to succumb to the Whites to resettle on the Reservations. After prolonged wars and depletion of male warriors this female pressure to become dependent of the White Man’s dole became irresistible.

        • beantownbill. January 10, 2020 at 10:34 pm #

          OMG that is so clever of you! Ok so if you are not dependent on a man but you are dependent on the state a lot of people think you are independent weirdly enough. So instead of saying “I want to fall in love” you say “I want to fall in dependence”. And everybody will think you really understand what’s important in life.

          • ellipsis January 11, 2020 at 5:55 am #

            We’re all dependent these days on one thing: continual flow of our economic life blood, money. So it’s funny to listen to some brag of their “economic independence,” as if there were any other kind these days. Not that it all couldn’t be taken away in an instant due to confiscation, or far more likely, inflation and/or deflation. Power over others is what money grubbers are ultimately seeking, something for which money is ultimately a very poor and temporary substitute. It’s also a zero sum game in any semblance of a “normal” economy (which our current debt-based fiasco definitely isn’t), meaning that for every winner there must be (usually multiple) losers. But the game plays on nonetheless…

The power idiots in the Jewish religion thought they had out powered God in the form of Jesus. The Resurrection was God’s statement of who really has the power. Jesus had to die to rise again.

      Man will never out power God. Jesus’ ministry’s success is evidence. One non-ordained teacher in a society of religious snobs converting the West. Wow!

And then she turns only to see a Asian/Pacific Islander? man chowing down sloppily on a sub sandwich. Yuck! So she gets right on her phone, gets on the lenders’ app and presto whamo she is driving down the street in solitary bliss, completely undisturbed by White breeders and Asian masticators.

          The ads are quite sick. much propaganda.

          I saw one where a black secretary? has a silly white man who is stuck behind a glass door.

          The funniest [unintended humor] are the burglar alarm ads,
          white mans about to break in and the break in is foiled-
          ADT has a black man to the rescue, on the line.

          and the heart medicine where the gizo dances as he gives the bride away, to a negro…have you seen?

    sophia quoted , “You say that the Vatican is against Israel because Israel exposes them for frauds. How does Israel do that?”

    No, he said, “To live in Israel is the essence of being Jewish. That’s what the Hebrew Bible teaches, that’s what it’s all about.

    The Vatican opposes this [ jews living in Israel ] and does everything it can to avert this, because it [ jews living in Israel ] … ”

    Someone akmofo doesn’t like doesn’t want jews living in Israel. We are still trying to figure the nomenclature.

      Well then the Vatican hasn’t done a very good job seeing that Israel has been an intentionally Jewish state for 71 years now. They’re going to rebuild the Temple. And then the Lawless One will come and he will proclaim himself as God. He will have a mortal wound and yet will live. He will perform miracles and signs and wonders and the world will follow after him. Even the Elect will be deceived. Jesus warned of the Man of Lawlessness and their abomination of desolation. In this way the Jewish state and Vatican will be of one mind.

        All of the last few Popes have had Jewish advisors. How many Rabbis have Catholic Priests or Bishops as advisors? So it’s obvious who the senior partner is in their alliance.

        The Anti-Christ will be born a Jew, and his two seats of power will be Rome and Jerusalem. So Akmo is half right – and half wrong.

    akmofo said. “There’s no “switch”. To be anti-Zionist is to be anti-Jewish.”

    All these labels are confusing. Do you like or not-like the Satmar? Who attacked them? Are they being silenced because they are Jewish or Zionist, or some other reason?

    “The supposition is that at a hypnotic level of public, subconscious “Group Mind” cognition, a link was made and brazenly shown (within 24 hours) between the attack on the anti-Zionist Satmar Judaics at the kosher grocery store and Trump’s executive order silencing those (like the Satmar), who are engaged in educational efforts demonstrating that Zionism is a racist, Nazi-type ideology.”

    Do you feel like Trump’s executive order is scurrilous?

      akmofo’s obviously never been to Israel, as even Israeli’s know there’s a distinction to be drawn between Zionists and Jews. An overlap in some cases, yes, but the groups are still distinct. Zionism is the Jewish crazy lunatic fringe, much like the Christian fundamentalists in Kansas and Oklahoma over here. No surprise that the two groups have essentially merged. Mass psychosis is like that.

        You are hinting at Dispensationalism, the worldview of Messrs Pence and Pompeo.

        “As a boy, Crowley was given a dose of the message that millions of evangelical Christians would listen to in the future. During Crowley’s childhood, The Rapture was not widespread. The End-Time scenario, Rapture, Antichrist and his horrible tribulation, and the gnashing of teeth was not your run of the mill evangelical doctrine but something exclusive to a handful of churches, one which little Aleister Crowley happened to attend.”

        https://www.patheos.com/blogs/keithgiles/2018/11/the-crowley-darby-connection/

        “So, thanks to John Nelson Darby, we not only inherited a wonky end times theology that regularly spawns date-setting “end of the world” predictions – which always fail, of course – and an entire cottage industry for those who claim to know the identity of the anti-Christ, or how some future events will bring us inches closer to the return of Christ, we also have Darby to thank for the twisted ideas of Aleister Crowley – a man often called “one of the wickedest men in the world.” 

        • Janos Skorenzy January 11, 2020 at 1:52 pm #

          Interesting. Crowley had an unspeakable loathing of Christianity due to having grown up under these ignorant fanatics.

          Despite this, he did admire his Grandfather who would accost people on the street and interrogate them as to what they purpose was. Where are you going? And then? And then? Ending with the ferocious injunction, “Get right with God!”.

        But yes, as Buchanan says, Likkud is straight up National Socialism. It works for them, and it will work for us. Works in India too under Modi.

        And yes, the rise of Jewish National Socialism helped give birth to German National Socialism. We have much to learn from the Jews – as long as we look at what they do, not what they say.

    So my toaster finally died. I went on Amazon to order a new one. There’s a shitload of toaster manufacturers. I found that the vast majority of them are in China. Curious, I began reading reviews from actual purchasers. It seems the China-made toasters look sharp, some even work well, but the one thing they have in common is they last only for a year or two. In contrast, I went to another site that sold refurbished American-made toasters from 100 years ago; they still work.

    Toaster sales are a very minor fact of life, but my two points are that this is an example of how far we have fallen, and how we are consistently willing to put up with inferior quality. It shows in our politicians, too.

      This has nothing to do with toasters but rather coffee makers. Coffee maker bites dust. Now what? Been brain-washed that you need some kind of coffee maker.

      Then I started to wonder. After all, how many cowboy movies did we see with the fellas out on the range pouring coffee from a steel kettle sitting on an iron grill over a fire?

      So then I saw my sister making coffee with a french-press. And that made me wonder too.

      So the next time I made coffee I boiled water in an ordinary pot, took it off the burner, dumped in a measured amount of ground coffee, put the cover on the pot and waited for six or seven minutes for it to steep. Then I poured the liquid through a kitchen strainer to catch the grounds. My wife doesn’t bother with the strainer. The results were not bad. Point is, no coffee maker.

      • BackRowHeckler January 11, 2020 at 2:26 pm #

        It’s called cowboy coffee, V. You can still get those old coffee pots at Goodwill, or garage sales, the kind you fill with water and put on top of the gas range. Probably is what your parents had when you were a kid. I keep one around here for when the power goes down, break out the propane camp stove and make coffee for the neighborhood.

      The very slow reaction of closing up the ozone hole shows how long any change to the earth unfolds. It does not make any difference if the politics call it AGW, or global warming or climate change, it is here and currently increasing. Freon causing destruction of the ozone was discovered in the 70’s. Changes took 30 years to be implemented, the hole is still closing.

      If we started decreasing fossil fuel usage now, the effects on CO2 will not be noticed for another 30 years or so.

      Hmmm! Something about Peak Oil starting to happen about the same time?

      Tate,

      I can’t get what your point is. I like to use global warming because it seems to me that the name change to climate change was a way to take the attention off the warming. That way, every time there is unusual weather, it can be blamed on “climate change.” i get that global warming can cause intermediate conditions, like even heavier snow. But in the end, either CO2 warms the atmosphere, or it doesn’t.

          My point is valid. When the price of oil skyrockets following supply and demand in the future, the absence of affordable oil will make some sort of substitution necessary. What that is is YTBD? JHK makes a strong case in The Long Emergency that there are no feasible alternatives to keep going as we are, thus significant sociological changes will occur, including lots of folks dying. His best fit in the book was nuclear supporting hydrogen fuel cell technology, but who knows.

    Who Decides Who Gets In – Michelle Malkin, Amren

    My plan to “Keep America Great” is very simple:
    1.Stop exporting American soldiers to countries that hate our guts.
    2.Stop importing people from countries that hate our guts.

    When I voted for Donald Trump in 2016, I thought this was the plan. The “America First” champion rightly assailed Barack Obama for recklessly endangering the lives of our soldiers to pursue politically driven endless wars. President Trump promised to build an effective wall on the southern border. He enacted tough travel restrictions, upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, on visitors from countries whose terror-coddling governments pose national security threats.

    Yet, here we are at the dawn of 2020 with thousands of U.S. troops headed back to the Stone Age Middle East maw, Mexican drug cartels on the loose while our Border Patrol hands out diapers to illegal immigrants and refugees from around the world — including nearly 1,400 welcomed just last year from the very high-risk countries the Trump travel ban was supposed to block — transforming the nation without the consent of the governed. The leaky block list includes Syria, Iraq and Iran, which launched multiple missiles at U.S. airbases late Tuesday in retaliation for our deadly airstrike last week that killed Quds General Qassem Soleimani.

    Now, we are on heightened alert here in our homeland with authorities nervous that Hezbollah sleeper cells (which I’ve documented since writing Invasion in 2002) might strike from within.

    Some of you still wonder why I write so frequently and vehemently about our failed immigration and entrance policies. It’s because nothing matters more right now to the survival of our country than the right to determine who gets in and the ability to enforce it.

    As I reported last year, thanks to an executive order signed by Trump in September, local communities were given the explicit opt-in rights to stem the lucrative tide of refugees coming largely from Third World countries and jihadist breeding grounds. This Wednesday, religious “charities” that profit the most from this multi-billion-dollar racket will be in court to assert blanket, open-borders veto power over the people.

    The U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland will hear arguments from vested refugee resettlement interests who oppose Trump’s order requiring government contractors to obtain written consent from all localities and states in which they plan to resettle refugees. The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Church World Service and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service — three of the nine State Department partners who resettle all refugees — argue that the federal government should prioritize family reunification of foreign refugees over local control.

    Translation: Americans come last.

    The lawsuit assails the White House executive order for threatening “to systematically dismantle the organizations — including Plaintiffs — that have spent decades developing networks, expertise, and resources to carry out the American ideal of welcoming refugees.” Those “resources” come from you and me: Tax subsidies that constitute the vast majority of these nonprofit activists’ budgets. Over the past decade, according to an analysis by immigration researcher James Simpson, the three plaintiff groups have raked in the following amounts from the federal refugee resettlement program:
    ?Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services: $471.6 million (94% from of its budget).
    ?Church World Service: $433.3 million (72% of its budget).
    ?Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society: $186.1 million (54% of its budget).

    The refugee resettlement contractors, in turn, spread their massive wealth — from both public and private sources — to a galaxy of subcontractors looking to register Democratic voters, fill their pews and recruit new clients and constituents. The “Interfaith Immigration Coalition” holding a protest event after the hearing on Wednesday to support the refugee pipeline includes: Columban Center for Advocacy and Outreach; Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd; U.S. Provinces; Daughters of Charity; Disciples Refugee & Immigration Ministries; Franciscan Action Network; Interfaith Immigration Coalition; Jewish Council for Public Affairs; Leadership Conference of Women Religious; National Advocacy Center of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd; National Council of Jewish Women; Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism; Rise for Refuge; Sisters of Mercy of the Americas – Institute Leadership Team; T’ruah; The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights; The United Church of Christ; and We Are All America.

    Thanks to pressure from these groups with bottomless budgets and clout, 18 Republican — yes, Republican — governors are also standing against Trump and self-determination in favor of increased refugee settlement, including: Doug Ducey of Arizona, Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas, Eric Holcomb of Indiana, Kim Reynolds of Iowa, Brad Little of Idaho, Mike Parsons of Missouri, Larry Hogan of Maryland, Charlie Baker of Massachusetts, Mike DeWine of Ohio, Kevin Stitt of Oklahoma, Pete Ricketts of Nebraska, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, Doug Burgum of North Dakota, Kristi Noem of South Dakota, Bill Lee of Tennessee, Gary Herbert of Utah, Jim Justice of West Virginia and Phil Scott of Vermont.

    The names must be named and the sellouts must be shamed, especially as war breaks out on all fronts. What’s the point of sending young American troops to fight enemies “over there” if we are welcoming them by the tens and hundreds of thousands over here?

    JS: Read the role of horror, the litany of shame. Jews and so called Christians (actually just Liberals) are united in their desire to color America out of any real existence. And the fool Republican Governors – the stupid party strikes again!

    Oh Michelle, Michelle – you have made this name sweet for me again after long bitterness. You are our Galadriel, another one of our strong brown girls. You will push and AOC will pull and America will slide into the slime pit on the edge of existence. I will catch your hand at the last minute, pulling you to safety. And together we will walk into the Sun of the New Day – the Final Order!

      Almost all the immigrants | refugees into the US are not the “enemy” at all – they are fleeing from the same zealotry and aggressive religious stuff that the US is allegedly fighting,, and which causes economic grief in those countries.

      I agree that almost all rich Western countries have had fairly massive immigration programs for some decades – mine (Australia) is very heavily invested in it. Personally I think it makes countries much better – pale vanilla mono-cultures are just dull.

        “Personally I think it makes countries much better – pale vanilla mono-cultures are just dull.”

        So would it be safe to assume you feel that way about all monocultures no matter the color? Or do you specifically feel that the White race alone deserves no native homelands? Japan is an East Asian monoculture. Nigeria is an African monoculture racially speaking. Given your philosophy you would agree that these countries must receive steady and large migrations of immigrants to dilute and break up the monotony right?

        • Cargill January 12, 2020 at 5:23 am #

          Japan and Nigeria are awfully dull too – in their particular ways culturally. White people don’t have a mortgage on dullness – no.

          I feel very privileged and lucky to live in a multicultural society – it is vibrant, interesting and fun. My partner teaches in a school where there are kids from 128 cultures – something like that; they have regular (and fabulous) international days.

            Such silly, irrelevant arguments. It matters not that you like to be immersed in different cultures. The point is that nations cannot afford the huge influx, that it hurts the working class, both black and white, that we have not taken care of Americans’ medical needs and we have not gotten black people in decent shape. We are in no position to take on more. Let’s get black culture functioning again. A big impediment to that is immigration. Not fair!

        And you say that most immigrants coming to the US are not our enemies. Most immigrants coming here now have no interest in assimilating into Amercan culture. For most its just a matter of having access to take the resources and jobs of our country. A great deal of the waelth immigrants generate gets sent back to their home countries too. Immigration should be banned altogether and the Statue of Liberty taken down.

        • Cargill January 12, 2020 at 5:30 am #

          I assume you have some facts and data to back all those statements up? I expect 95% of immigrants | refugees just want some peace, sanctuary, a job, and an economic and education future for there kids.

          Just exactly the same as your migrant ancestors almost certainly did – whether they came here in 1940, 1840, or 1740.

          Most couldn’t care less about the politics or conflict back “home”, and are glad to be well clear of it. By the second generation, the kids are little Americans – like everyone else.

          • JohnAZ January 12, 2020 at 10:53 am #

            It would be true if the country was not approaching capacity, like the rest of the world. The last statistic I heard was 73% of the illegals last year ended up on some sort of government support.

            The open jobs we hear about all the time are highly skilled and the immigrants do not fill the bill. All we are doing is bringing people to the cities to increase the urban problems that are already there. One of the great mysteries of the homeless problem in California is it looks like the incoming hordes are dislocating the folks already there. How can this be?

            Another interesting trend. Iowa is trending towards Bernie in the caucus polls. How can a conservative bunch of farmers support a socialist? Maybe because they are outnumbered by what is in the urban areas.

          Only disagree with you on one point. We have professional and highly skilled jobs that are not being filled. As we bring in more and more unskilled people, the need for these skilled positions rises.

          Our liberally biased education system is increasingly turning out nincompoops instead of fully educated folks to fill these needs.

          So the US is going outside to find people to fill these jobs. The proof of this is the Doctor trade where the entry level family folks and hospitality ranks are increasingly foreign born.

          Another irony. The nincompoops come out of high school or college without marketable skills. Great! Not only that, they have been indoctrinated that they are too good to be doing menial labor jobs. So guess who keeps coming to fill those menial jobs. With full liberal approval.

          • SoftStarLight January 12, 2020 at 12:55 pm #

            That is one of the biggest most dire issues that we face but the attention it gets is not enough and that is the black hole that is our whole system of education. Today schools don’t prepare kids for a productive future per se. Rather it seems that the schools have taken on the role of political indoctrination camps and social engineering programs. That’s why kids today can tell you about all of the different genders that “exist” but they have no clue that our government has three branches. All of this has been intentional. The Elite cannot abide an educated and motivated population. They want cattle. That’s why they are committed to dumbing us down and stripping us of the last remnants of our heritage. And that’s why they are importing millions of replacements that they can easily control. That’s why the Elite and the Globalists need to be taken out of power.

            John AZ,

            You’re perhaps talking about the H1b visa types. I don’t think it is true that Americans can’t fill them. And if it is, it is no solution to fill them with immigrants who will make finding a decent job only worse, You don’t think that the lower salaries the immigrants accept plays a part in spreading the meme that Americans are too stupid to fill them?

            But it is really the lower classes and also businesses like construction that are really hard hit by being outcompeted because the immigrant or illegal labor is cheaper.

      The elites, who stay behind the lines, have very distorted viewpoints on human life. Just squares on a map.

      WW2 had a similar situation. The 8th Air Force was sacrificed prior to Dday to get the Luftwaffe to attack them to knock out the Luftwaffe’s capability to wipe out the invasion. It worked. The statistics were grim. The bombers were clobbered in the bombing raids over Germany. More 8th Air Force guys were killed than Marines in the Pacific.

    In the 1970’s, college football teams had strong running attacks. Less emphasis on the quarterback.

    There were no transgenders in the society. No one even knew what a transgender was. It was only when college football teams placed primacy on the passing game that transgenders came to the fore.

      That interesting bloke who writes the excellent Fabius Maximus blog has a new article in which he posits that the “Birth Control Pill” basically functions by hormonally tricking the female body into thinking that it’s pregnant so that the woman’s ovary does not release an egg as usual. Is this true? (Don’t be Fuck’n with me now!).

      The author of the article then suggests that since many women are in a constant artificially induced state of pregnancy that this mentally influences and fucks up their choices in men.

      Any thoughts?

Does she think that it makes her look inconspicuous? Trump’s wife has a very nice rack! Trump has his arms around both of ‘em. Holy Shit Balls!

    And why isn’t there an Arrest Warrant out for Ghislaine Maxwell? She’s just as culpable as Jeffrey Epstein. Everyone pretends like just because Epstein allegedly killed himself that the case is closed. Just because one bank robber is killed doesn’t mean that the rest of the gang walks. And where-the-Hell is Epstein’s body? We had this dodgy autopsy, but Epstein’s body is missing. My guess is that Epstein walked out of the Manhattan Correctional Center, which would explain why all of the prison video tapes are missing.

          That is the extortion the Boards in NY have been using since WW2. Letting locales compete against each other for manufacturing and supportive service jobs. A good argument can be made that the demographic changes in the country are shaped by this competition as the corporations tend to locate in urban areas. This trend has worsened lately as the competition has driven the corporations to get bids from overseas and the loss of jobs in the 21st century has been significant enough to swing elections.

      • JohnAZ January 12, 2020 at 11:24 am #

        A hidden fact is that as wind and solar power have increased, so has fossil fuels. We are producing more now than ever. The real situation is we need more and more energy of all types, including oil. That is why our no.1 problem of the future is not energy conversion, it is what we do when we use up affordable fossil fuels.

        Hint: Affordable in today’s mind is different than in the future’s mind. We HAVE to have energy, or we die. Every effort will continue to be used to develop petroleum mining. No matter what the cost, until it is gone. It will be very cold and dark after that.

            AND I do not trust our corrupt Deep State government to supervise any form of nuclear energy construction. They will get bought off by shoddy contractors or sell the fuel to Russia, you name it. The China Syndrome is too monstrous to put in the hands of the creeps in DC.

        Reason being I think there wasn’t much heavy industry in Vermont to attract migrants from the south looking for work. There was a machine tool base in Springfield and Windsor but it had faded out by the 1920s.

        Lot of hippies went up there in the 60s from Brooklyn, the Bronx, Boston and North Hampton — Howard Deane and Bernie Sanders being two — and these newcomers altered the politics of the state. No longer was it dominated by flinty Yankee Republican Vermont natives.

        My wife and I went into the Capitol building just to check it out. The dome is not gold flaked like in Ct, but painted green. It’s really a beautiful building. We walked around, had lunch, checked out the Senate chambers, went up another floor to where the offices were. Suddenly a door opened and this distinguished looking guy walked out, said hello, asked if he could help us. It was the Governor, Governor Scott! We told him we were just visiting, he asked where we were from, if we liked what we’ve seen so far etc. Then he wished us a good day. That’s how it is there, a cool vibe all around.

He is one of the GOP governors that is wanting to increase the scope of resettlement too. He says its another tool to bring in skilled workers and that refugees bring countless contributions to the community. Just imagine if our governors were this excited in investing in American childrens’ education so that they were skilled workers.

    ” To the extent the Vatican is still Catholic, it has little power. ”

    Perhaps it is time to let the secular humanists obsess over who gets to eat at Golden Corral , instead of at Burger King , for all the good that has done them or us ?

    Maybe their lust for power just demonstrates they are fucking idiots ?

    ” To the extent (overwhelming) it has been infiltrated by the Masons, Satanists, Jews, and Homosexuals – it has great power. In other words, their power, the power of the coalition of alien elements. ”

    My guess would be that comes under the umbrella term , “Clusterfuck ” , like in the title .

    I don’t suppose JHK is Catholic though.

    While the end of cheap oil , and climate change , and scientism run amok , apply to the whole world ,

    my guess would be his , “Clusterfuck ” applies primarily , in his case, ….. to his own beloved United States .

    He’s not primarily talking about Columbia or North Korea , or even your Commonwealth buddies ?

    ” Latin American Liberation Theology has born strange fruit. ”

    Politics makes strange bedfellows , perennially.

    In this case I think that what is perhaps far more important , for example , than this idiotic clap – trap about the doctrine excusing homosexuality ,

    is the fact that Europe and North America have become mission territory.

    YOUR kind aren’t filling the pews , YOUR kind aren’t tithing , YOUR kind do anything but submit to the discipline of obedience. YOUR kind do little but complain about everything.

    What the fuck is the Church supposed to do about all of that ?

    I think that is really more YOUR problem and YOUR fault.

    It is , after all , YOUR household.

    ” The Coalition seems to have a scheme to use Ecology and Amazonian/Incan occultism is to creat a New World Religion out of the ashes of what was once the Faith . ”

    So now queers and neo – pagans know better and are more estimable than Christ ?

    We survived the Gnostics , the Borgia Popes , a French exile , and the blatant betrayal of the Templar knights . And I suspect those calamities were much , much worse.

    The folks who make license plates and issue fishing licenses can play all sorts of funny games with authority. But Christianity cannot.

    There is no getting around the fact that Jesus Christ founded this Church. You cannot just go elsewhere.

    Or am I just talking to a John Calvin , Brigham Young , or Jim Jones Protestant ?

    By the way , who would get my vote for best Pope of the 20th century ? The one they won’t canonize ; Pius XII.

    Nazis and Fascists on one side , Bolsheviks on the other side , and the American cavalry ( who , by the way , were bankrolling both the Nazis and Bolsheviks. But let’s never mind that ! ) won’t deign to show up for 20 years.

    He did a phenomenal job , given the shit sandwich he had to work with.

      As Barnhardt says, even the apostate Popes of the past didn’t preach Occultism, Satanism, or Indifferentism. Something prevented them – either the prevailing ethos and their Brother Bishops – or the power of Christ in the blessing given to the Church. Without discounting the former, Barnhardt says it is the latter. Hers is a mystical Legalism – far beyond anything I have ever considered or come across. But she says it IS the Teaching from all Ages. She may be right. The people who taught me weren’t as serious as she is – almost on one is now.

      So the real Pope is Benedict, as horrible as he was he didn’t corrupt the way this one does. Or none at all – the Sedevacant position. I don’t know, but Barhnarhdt’s position is glorious, and one that would support your Orthodoxy. Nothing else will, quite frankly.

      Pius the 12th – good choice. A saintly man slandered by the Dark Powers of this World. “Hitler’s Pope” according to the Tribe, despite his encyclicals against National Socialism. What dreck.
