In Blob We Trust

“In terms of the Moscow terror attack, the fact that those who carried out the attack were captured is now causing a huge headache for those who were ultimately responsible.” — The Sirius Report on “X”

     You’ve got to ask yourself: really, who seems to hanker more for a red-hot World War Three, “Joe Biden” or Vlad Putin? Since “Joe Biden” is only a figment of American politics, first you’d have to ask: a figment of what? Answer: A figment of our greater intel blob, led, of course, by the Central Intelligence Agency. Which is to say, the blob is our government now; there is no government except the blob. We are the United Blob of America! In Blob We Trust should be printed on our money.

     That being the case, blob policy rules. And since deception is one of the blob’s chief duties, we mere sniveling citizens should expect to be deceived at every turn about everything. So, when the blob’s news cut-out, The New York Times, serves up a comprehensive history of the gang known as ISIS-K Monday morning after the Moscow Crocus Concert Hall Massacre, you might suspect that some deception is afoot.

     ISIS-K immediately took credit for the Crocus Massacre. K stands for Khorasan, a set of provinces in eastern Iran, leaking over into Afghanistan and Pakistan. ISIS-K supposedly evolved out of the original ISIS that sought to establish an Islamic caliphate out of Iraq and Syria. After Mr. Trump broke it up in 2019, the gang regrouped in K-land, deeper in central Asia. Curiously, this ISIS-K has carried out attacks against Iran, where it lives. Go figure. . . . Its progenitor, the plain old ISIS-no-K was responsible for the horrific Bataclan Theater massacre in Paris, 2015 and the suicide bombing of the Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena, UK, 2017. They’re sort of the Concert-Massacres-R-Us of terror orgs — you really couldn’t find a better patsy for the Crocus op.

      Is it as simple as that? Not if you consider Scott Ritter’s theory that the first ISIS was a creation of the CIA, with the mission of ousting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, considered by the blob to be an uber-bad dude, largely for enlisting Russia’s help in ending Syria’s civil war. And if you can actually figure out what Syria’s civil war was about, other than a US blob op to gain control of Syria and its oil, you could win a MacArthur Genius Prize. But you might also ask: did the United Blob of America hire ISIS-K to slaughter 137 Russian civilians Saturday night? And also: did it do so directly or indirectly, through cut-outs?

    One blob weakness is that it can’t resist the impulse to telegraph its plans ahead of some dastardly act. Both “Joe Biden” and State Department war-hawk Victoria Nuland verbally signaled the op to blow-up the Nord Stream gas pipelines well before the act. Before “retiring” (or getting cashiered) from State this month, Ms. Nuland warned Russia to expect “some nasty surprises” in the days ahead. Was she fired for opening her big mouth? Now, a photograph has surfaced of one of the captured Crocus perps, Shamsidin Fariduni, posing in the Crocus concert hall date-stamped March 7. A set-up? A deep fake?

     In any case, on March 8 the United Blob State Department issued a warning to Russia’s foreign ministry that something wicked was coming their way, and likewise warned our diplomatic personnel to steer clear of concert halls and other public venues. Was the Crocus op already well in motion? And was the blob trying to cover for Ms. Nuland’s big mouth by warning about something that was too late to stop?

     Whatever else you think about the Russians, they are not dumb bunnies. You can be sure they are carefully putting together the puzzle pieces, having already been careful to take the suspects alive. They were, incidentally, all in one car driving toward the Ukraine border when apprehended by Russian police. That is being considered “a clue” as to who their handlers are. But then, who is Ukraine’s handler? (Cue: thinking music.)

Shooter Shamsidin Fariduni

      At least one of them — Fariduni — confessed that his gang received all their instructions over a Telegram social media channel. The gang, by the way, were all natives of Tajikistan, a former Soviet republic. Its population is 98 percent Muslim, around 97 percent of them Sunni and 3 percent Shia. Neighboring Iran is militantly Shia, for what it’s worth. The four Crocus perps were living as immigrant workers in Russia. How hard would it be to track who was the proprietor of the alleged Telegram messaging site that offered payment and sent orders to the perps? I’m guessing that would not be so difficult.

      The United Blob sent lavish condolences to President Putin on Sunday. We’re so sorry. . . boo-hoo. . . . The directorate of the CIA was awash in crocodile tears, I’m sure. Russia was already busy answering Ukraine’s attempted Belgorod incursion of the previous week by turning off the lights in Kharkov. Meanwhile, Polish, French, and German regular army troops have moved directly by rail and air inside Ukraine to Cherkassy, south of Kiev. The mental defectives running Poland, France, and Germany seem avid for NATO to jump with both feet into ground action in Ukraine, that is, go directly to war with Russia. It’s hard to imagine an act with a potentially worse outcome for NATO, for Europe, and, by extension, for Western Civ. Despite all their posturing, Euroland’s armies could not be less prepared to go up against Russia on the Ukraine battlefield, and are therefore begging for an epic ass-kicking. They’ve already sacrificed their industrial economies at the United Blob’s bidding, so why not just get Europe’s ticket punched for an express trip back to the 11th century?

      How about “Joe Biden,” front-man for the United Blob of America? What’s in it for “him?” We might surmise that the “Joe Biden” re-election campaign seeks a big, fat, juicy major distraction from its so-far pathetic effort to keep a near-mummy in the White House. Well, how about that World War they’ve been itchin’ for? Plus, they probably calculate, it’d be great for business! Besides, considering the poll numbers, this might just be the blob’s last stand, since they know as soon as Mr. Trump gets back in the White House (if the blob can’t manage to kill him first) the words “You’re fired!” will echo so thunderously between Foggy Bottom and Judiciary Square that every last critter in the DC Swamp will light out for the territories to avoid the prosecutions sure to follow.

    Coming off yesterday’s National Day of Mourning in Russia, we now have a lot to unpack. Is there any doubt that some of the weaponry used by this ISIS cell was obtained compliments of Biden’s terrible exit from Afghanistan?

    The “leaders” of the West do not care that this attack occurred in Russia. They are probably in their back rooms rubbing their hands in glee.

    • justanotherguy March 25, 2024 at 10:04 am #

      doubt about affy hardware? c’mon man, there are suggestions the final days prior to that final dark day in september were spent aligning the disposition of that materiel.

      there has been continuity in America’s “fundamental transformation” that started in 2008. red diaper boomer babies.

    • thirdcoastlegend March 25, 2024 at 10:25 am #

      cowbell-

      There are reports on Telegram that one of the attackers appeared to have a prototype AK12 rifle, which would be an unusual thing for a random jihadi.

      Also unusual was the attempt to flee, rather than standing and fighting against Russian security forces to try and get martyred.

      • cowbell81 March 25, 2024 at 10:30 am #

        Indeed, and they had the getaway car on standby, ready to go. Everything seems very sketchy. At least they were all brought in alive, so I trust the Russians will grill them for everything they are worth.

        Maybe Brittney Griner can give these ISIS terrorists some tips about life on the inside of Russian prison.

        • mary.m March 25, 2024 at 11:22 am #

          I suspect Britney’s tenure will be a far cry from the terrorists.

          Aleks, from Black Mountain Analysis was pretty blunt about what to expect. Short version: they will suffer. A lot.

          For those disappointed at no death sentence, there are fates worse than death. And they will likely be longing for death.

          Long version: see Chechnya

          I expect Russia will go to the ends of the earth to find everyone involved, including Toria the Hut & her zoo keepers. Ding dong, the wicked witch of the west will be dead. If she’s lucky.

          • Ron Anselmo March 25, 2024 at 11:28 am #

            Mary – I love your whispered sweet nothings – hopefully they’ll reach every single one responsible. One can only hope.

          • thirdcoastlegend March 25, 2024 at 12:39 pm #

            Mary-

            The Russian legislature is already discussing bringing back the death penalty for the perps.

            I find it hard to believe an ex-KGB guy like Putin doesn’t already have tons of sleeper agents with instructions already in place.

          • mary.m March 25, 2024 at 5:39 pm #

            Thirdcoast,

            There are mixed messages there. Otoh, the other day Putin said they reviewed the moratorium & determined under their constitution there is no way the rescind it. Otoh, he gave the defense or intel services carte blanche to do what they need to do.

          • mary.m March 25, 2024 at 5:42 pm #

            Oops, accidentally posted before done.

            Iirc, Aleks from Black Mountain wrote he expects they will end up killed, but not before a lot of suffering.

      • Paula D March 25, 2024 at 11:15 am #

        The car was a Renault, a French car. Message sending?

        I saw a Muslim comment that he looked at a photo of these dudes spread by the Mighty Wurlitzer, and they were pointing their fingers at the sky, as Muslims do (I didn’t know that, actually, but that’s what he said.)
        Anyway, he said they were all using their left hand, which an actual Muslim would never do.

        Also, it was a Friday night during Ramadan. We’re supposed to believe that Muslim fundamentalists would pick that night to go kill 180 people?

        Yeah, right.

        • Jarek March 25, 2024 at 1:02 pm #

          In other words, it’s all a Renault commercial?

        • Grandpa March 25, 2024 at 6:10 pm #

          actual mooslimes would not use their left “unclean” hand. actual mooslimes would have fought to the death, babaloo snackbar and all that, no 72 virgins for these tadjiks. Too many things don’t jibe, we need 51 former intelligence officials to investigate and report back.

          • astera March 25, 2024 at 6:49 pm #

            “we need 51 former intelligence officials to investigate and report back”

  2. justanotherguy March 25, 2024 at 9:56 am #

    my wife is now persuaded to begin reading “one nation under blackmail” by whitney webb. vol 2 will be here shortly for me. several former serving .mil intelligence types have asserted that webb must be receiving material from a whistleblower on the inside – connected of course with the blackmail of the blob organized by child trafficers.

    question to our host – have you read webb, and if so, your opinion?

    • JohnAZ March 25, 2024 at 10:15 am #

      Blackmail?

      Consider that the blob and the cartels may be fighting for the same side.

    • tuco22 March 25, 2024 at 10:53 am #

      Blackmail isn’t so hard to consider when you look at the legislation that emanates from our elected representatives.

  3. JustinMoab March 25, 2024 at 9:56 am #

    Lots to unpack indeed. Let’s start with the captured. Are they really the ones responsible? How do we know this? Short answer, we don’t. Here’s another thing that’s weird. Prime time torture. Since when has Russia done this. Like us, they usually try to hide it. Why go public with the ear and the ball zapper? It’s almost like they’re trying to get us to believe something. Probably. That said, it doesn’t mean I believe the other side any more than I do the Rooskies.. It’s all one big giant mindfuch at this point.

    • Beryl of Oyl March 25, 2024 at 10:08 am #

      Russians are good chess players. They are also masters of propaganda.

      • JohnAZ March 25, 2024 at 10:16 am #

        As are we, or at last used to be.

        • Cankerpuss March 25, 2024 at 10:33 am #

          I don’t know. It appears our nation is still pretty damned good a the propaganda game. Afterall, millions of Americans were duped by the media into getting the clot shot, close down their businesses and believe that standing 6 feet apart in Walmart would protect them from the Boogey Man virus they all suddenly started reporting on together.

          I’d say it is still very powerful.

          • tuco22 March 25, 2024 at 10:54 am #

            Yep, and if the PTB attempted that again, the lemmings would do it all over again.

          • Ron Anselmo March 25, 2024 at 11:32 am #

            CP – our propaganda isn’t getting better, our IQ is getting lower. That’s, as is now fashionable to say, fact-checkable.

          • Beryl of Oyl March 25, 2024 at 12:32 pm #

            That’s it, Ron. People who should have known better were going along with the exact opposite of everything we knew about pandemics.

            That takes a special kind of stupid.

    • mary.m March 25, 2024 at 11:25 am #

      They went public with Chechnya back in the day. We just didn’t have telegram or X/twitter back then.

      Why? Sends a message to terrorist wannabes.

  4. PeteAtomic March 25, 2024 at 9:57 am #

    Good morning, Jim. Thank you for the blog this morning.

    “The mental defectives running Poland, France, and Germany seem avid for NATO to jump with both feet into ground action in Ukraine, that is, go directly to war with Russia. It’s hard to imagine an act with a potentially worse outcome for NATO, for Europe, and, by extension, for Western Civ.”

    Yes, obviously. The Western European militaries of France, Germany and the UK are woefully ill prepared and completely undermanned. The French Army can maybe scratch together 7,000 troops, along with a thousand Belgians and (no joke) 27 Luxembourgers, to send to Ukraine. That is it. The UK maybe has an entire land army of 5,000 soldiers. Germany is little better.

    Furthermore, Russia is producing 250,000 artillery shells a month. The entirety of the US and Europe is barely 10 percent of that.

    So, like so much in the collective West, the elites believe delusion & fantasies become some kind of psychotic magic to transform reality.

    The sad Frenchmen who get dumped into Ukraine, will be completely destroyed like the number of Ukrainian armies have experienced in the last few years, and the supposedly “supermen” of the Wehrmacht, before them.

    None of these collective West leaders, or their dummkopf generals, have learned anything from history. Nothing.

    • thirdcoastlegend March 25, 2024 at 10:16 am #

      The WEF regional managers who are in the process of destroying Europe don’t seem to realize that the American public could care less if they send a bunch of their troops to die for nothing in Ukraine.

      • tuco22 March 25, 2024 at 10:55 am #

        Well, the American public could care less if they send our troops to die for nothing in Ukraine, either, for that matter, the only difference being that here, the beneficiaries get a lot of life insurance money.

        • tuco22 March 25, 2024 at 10:56 am #

          And some of them get to be on the Wounded Warrior Project commercials on TV.

          • cowbell81 March 25, 2024 at 11:14 am #

            You get a “free” blanket if you give them enough money. How very kind and generous of them. How much donation money is wasted on blankets and lining CEO pockets when the intent is to have the money go to a worthwhile cause?

          • TallTim March 25, 2024 at 3:20 pm #

            Isn’t it nice that we have all the money in the world to create war, but sorry no money when you come back all FFF’d up.

          As Hillary said, It’s women who suffer in war. The men just die. Guess she forgot about all the permanently maimed. It didn’t fit her feminist narrative…..

            Women have always been the primary victims of war. Women lose their husbands, their fathers, their sons in combat. Women often have to flee from the only homes they have ever known. Women are often the refugees from conflict and sometimes, more frequently in today’s warfare, victims. Women are often left with the responsibility, alone, of raising the children.

      One of the persistent delusions of the West is that techno whizz-bang weapons win wars. Thus the insanely over-budget F-35, about 20% are ready for combat at any time.

      We lost our most recent war – to a group of Dark Age goat herders with no aircraft, no navy, no artillery, no armor, who were armed with only 1950’s era man-carried Soviet weapons.

      • thirdcoastlegend March 25, 2024 at 10:26 am #

        Ish-

        The GAO report on the F-35s is interesting.

        If one limits the F-35 population to those built from 2008 to 2012, the readiness rate drops to 0%.

      • tuco22 March 25, 2024 at 11:00 am #

        There is also something else over there that mainstream doesn’t talk about. I came by this information by way of a video, in which this air force pilot flying a C-130 gave an interview about a particular cargo. There are evidently giants living in Kandahar, Afghanistan. The army killed one after it basically destroyed the first army team that encountered it. These beings are so massive that the army had to change its battle doctrine on how to fire at targets. No lie. The pilot said it weighed 1100 pounds, was at least 12 feet in height. Red hair. Stank to high heaven.

        • tuco22 March 25, 2024 at 11:02 am #

          So, I’m thinking, gee, giants in Kandahar and pterodactyls in Arizona. And we were all brought up to believe these things didn’t exist anymore.

      “None of these collective West leaders, or their dummkopf generals, have learned anything from history.”

      They’re not “in it to win it”, they’re in it to lose, and to provoke a larger confrontation that will bring down western civilization, in order to pave the way for the long-promised New World Order (aka Great Reset, aka Global Government). They are doing exactly as their masters pay them to do.

    Greetings,

    Before jumping over here this morning I was over at the Hedge reading about the complete collapse of Baltimore’s police department and how the police department had but 3 officers on duty to police 61,000 people and could no longer respond to more than one call at a time.

    This is important because we’ve let in a lot of criminals from all around the world and when they unleash mayhem like we just saw in Russia, there wont be any police or security forces to respond to it.

    One final thing: Once the security forces are gone, who will enforce contracts? Who will do the evicting? Who will confiscate property? How will the blob collect its taxes when it has no strong arm to do so?

          You’re right, malthuss – what better way for a gibbering cadaver to retain office than to start a war? He can throw out his chest and like GeeDubya, claim to be a wartime president. Can’t change horses in the middle of the stream now, can ya?

          They hauled the 4 shooters into court. All were severely scuffed up, one was unconscious. No matter, arraign them and get them ready for trial and execution. Nobody messes with Putin twice. If Nuland has 2 brain cells to rub together – that’s IF – she should be twenty miles underground, shaking in her support hose.

          We are privileged to enjoy another superb offering from our host but I think it wise to disabuse ourselves of the notion that tRump will ever hold office again. It won’t be allowed. Even if he managed to get the votes counted (he won’t) in keeping with his previous form, there would be no firing, no prosecutions. He would squat squarely in the middle of his rightful domain, promoting one swamp creature after another and feigning outrage when they betrayed him. The US deserves better.

            I’m leaning more and more toward the idea that we will get Trump 2.0. The “right” will feel vindicated, and the “left” will be hysterical with rage – even worse than during Trump 1.0.

            The left foot has taken a giant step forward during the Big Guy’s regime. Time for the right foot to take us further down the same road.

            More Burn, Loot ‘n’ Murder. More Antifa. More rapes and murders by our beloved “newcomers”. More lawfare “against” Trump. More broken promises about “draining the swamp” and “closing the border”.

            Trumps supporters will defend his lack of action with “his hands are tied!” – as the supporters of every President do when he doesn’t do what he promised.

            I still like my Hildebeast theory though. It’s a long time until November. Things can go really crazy between now and then – and almost certainly will.

        As a former resident of that beautiful state of Arizona that I love, I could not agree more. Something that is being overlooked, in my opinion, is the actual reason for importing mostly military aged illegal invaders. Most are assuming they are for voting purposes, but feel there is a much more sinister purpose. Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin gives a clue to their true purpose when she pushes for 500,000 illegals to be taken into our military in exchange for citizenship. Think of them with automatic weapons and you may begin to get the picture. They are here to join with antifa and blm when the Democrats again call them out for chaos, rioting, mayhem, even murder, as they did in 2020, but put them back in place during the Biden marxist administration. Everything will be done to stop or impede the election of Trump, including his murder is they can pull that off, i.e., JFK.

        • tuco22 March 25, 2024 at 11:57 am #

          Baldwin is only a senator because she has two tits and a vagina and she’s a lesbian. Those are her sole qualifications as an elected representative. In the 90’s when she was a congresscritter, she and a bunch of her fellow lesbians got together to try to get the Boy Scouts national charter revoked because of their stance on homosexuality. More recently, she and Ron Kind came up with the vape tax and pushed to get vape products banned from the mail, which in turn led to the closing of businesses that did their business by mail and made vape products more expensive than actual tobacco. Now, a pack of cigarettes is cheaper than a couple of vape pods.

          Exactly. Votes don’t count. “Results” will be made up to support the selection of our pre-determined demagogue.

          The illegals are here to drive down wages, drive up unemployment and housing costs, crash the social safety net, bankrupt the economy, then rob, rape, and murder us – the citizens of the US – once the shit hits the fan.

          The “Biden” administration is the most criminal in the history of this country – and yet approximately half the country supports “him” because he isn’t Trump.

            @Blackbird

            You left out the most important part.

            The majority of “illegals” are desperately poor people caught up in a mass religious movement seeking a fraudulent dream of wealth they have seen on TV, nurtured by NGO’s who’s goal is the destruction of the former United states of america. The Border floodgates were thrown open by the DemonRat Party in an attempt to hold onto their political dominance garnered by decades of fake election circuses.

            And then there are the New Brigades. 320 thousand were recruited from all over the world by the OBiden administration. They didn’t have to face the hardships of the Darian Gap— instead they were flown directly to entry points in the US where free cell phones and monthly stipends await. A common departure point is Quito, Ecuador, one of the last US$ strongholds in the South American continent. The majority initially were from Venezuela, but now they come from all over the world. Colombia, Africa, Gaza, Ukraine, the Middle East conflict zones, and in particular China where a series of “hotels” have been set up to ease their passage.

            The New Brigades have several things in common. They are almost entirely military age young men. The arrive by airline, paid by the OBiden administration through cover fronts. They never are registered by US border patrol, even through the “Catch and Release” policies that prevail.

            Military recruitment into the US volunteer Armed Forces has fallen to the point where it misses annual targets by 40,000+++ every year. Very few join unless they are dead broke or mentally deficient. It seems that even West Point no longer believes in the concepts of Honor or Duty— even that institution is so ashamed of it’s own country that they changed their moto to “Army Values”.

            So what do you believe the role of the New Brigades is to be in the New World Order or the New Civil War?

      • NickelthroweR March 25, 2024 at 10:41 am #

        I’m not so sure that the military can do it. Policing large urban areas with equipment and tactics better suited to fight a world war isn’t going to work. The situation would escalate out of control rather quickly.

        The best that the military can do is run an open-air prison like Gaza. You can’t police what is inside but you can mostly keep everyone in their 15 minute prison.

        • john0 March 25, 2024 at 2:58 pm #

          Gaxa is not an open air prison. There are Fàkestinisns all over the planet.
          You might as well join the Biden campaign if you think there is a trace of validity anywhere in the 75 year UN Fakestinian Scam.
          It is not their land and it never was.
          Total land ownership by resident Arabs was 3 percent in 1947, and being a sharecropper never entitled anyone to the land.
          It’s evil Jew Hater BS, start to finish and even now, they officially remain dedicated to the genocide of Israel.
          Lies against Israel will not go unpunished, they are the precise focus of Armegeddon, God’s Vengeance against Jew Haters.

            @John0

            Gaza IS an open-air prison.

            I don’t know where you find “3%” Arab owned. Why don’t you just write “Palestine was 97% Jewish owned”?

            Why don’t you write that we have no inflation too?

            At the end of 1946, Jews had acquired about 6-8% of the land in Palestine, which represented about 20% of the arable land.

            The UN partition plan gave the Jews, who numbered around 600,000, 56% of Palestine, and the Arabs, who numbered 1.2 million, 42%. So, right off the bat, half the Jews got 33% more land from the “international community” (the West plus the USSR).

            But in actuality, the Israelis wound up taking more land in 1948 than what the UN plan called for.

            Afterwards,the Arabs were attacked in TWO major wars:
            the Suez War, and even more importantly, the June 1967 War.

            In June 1967, to keep their sneak attack a secret from the US, the Israelis even tried to sink the USS Liberty, killing 32 (or 37) US sailors and injuring another 150 plus.

            Your amateurish screed is straight of Goebbel’s planbook–challenge truths you don’t like with blatant lies.

            Israel is evil, just like Nazi Germany was evil (even though the Germans had legitimate grievances, and Hitler did point out the role of big money, big capital, in Germany’s defeat in WW1).

            Several Jews, like Albert Einstein, expressed serious reservations about many Israeli leaders like the terrorist Menachim Begin.

            w.thehypertexts.com/Albert%20Einstein%201948%20Letter%20New%20York%20Times%20Nakba.htm

            Israel is evil. Supporters of Israel’s campaigns in Gaza and the West Bank are supporting murder, theft, unlawful imprisonment, and ethnic cleansing.

            When the situation is viewed in its totality, Hamas’ actions are mere pin pricks.

            When we see block of Tel Aviv looking like Gaza, then Israel might have something to complain about.

          This reveals an often overlooked fact that is staring everyone in the face: Criminal Cartels are simply armed mobs not yet lawfully recognized as the de facto governments that they actually are of the territories that they have taken by force of arms.

          It is a very short leap from de facto ruling “mob” or “warlord” and becoming a de jure government.

          At the end of the day it’s just a legal fiction to call any armed organization that controls territory a “government.” The truth is that “whoever has the most guns, rules.” On our case, that is the USG and its MIC that backs it up.

          Mao recognized this truth many decades ago with his famous observation that “All power grows out of the barrel of a gun.”

          Our Founding Fathers recognized the same truth when they wrote the Second Amendment into the Bill of Rights” and made it part of our Constitution.

          So, at the end of the day, owning firearms and ammunition gives you more say over how you are to be governed than any damned ballot box. The CARTIDGE BOX is the real source of your political power.

        It’s not difficult for law enforcement, even dysfunctional law-enforcement, to mess with generally law-abiding citizens who have done nothing WRONG (this is different from breaking the law, when the law is unfair or wrong–like making an honest mistake on one’s taxes).

        It IS difficult to enforce laws against violent, armed criminals.

        So, when security forces are gone, beside contracts not being enforced (people choosing not to pay rent being the biggest likely offense), the question becomes, will the criminal gangs be able to organize and function effectively to steal, like the Mafia in its heyday.

        Or, will people be able to “band together” to prevent from being robbed or harassed?

        In small-town America, I think they will. In the suburbs… it depends on the neighborhood–the TYPE of people (good or not) and their political view (a nice neighbor who is polite, friendly, keeps their house looking decent, helps out when you need help, but loves Biden and hates guns is not going to be much use).

          Rapid change will ensue when citizens form innumerable neighborhood watch groups to provide early warning for law enforcement raids on citizens at behest of federal agencies.

          The change will further manifest when state, county, and local law enforcement begin refusing to cooperate with federal raids on local citizens for all causes.

          States will object to and deny access entirely for such raids following one or more “incidents” where a large number of deaths occur.

          Federal agencies will censure said states and begin sanctioning them officially and unofficially.

          States will respond by suspending permits for federal offices, buildings, and other such sites to continue operation.

          Federal authorities will respond by restricting/blocking road, rail, and air traffic into and out of said states.

          The Republic has already become something else. The people have not caught up to the fact until now. Only a spark remains. Something people will rally behind to the death, because following such event, they will truly believe they have nothing to lose.

          The people will push local officials, commissioners, boards, sheriffs, mayors, and motivators to act. It will be organic and impossible to reverse. The anger will be too hot.

          Well…,the fat lady hasn’t sung yet, CP. It ain’t over till it’s over.

          Just like today, where the mighty T-Rump was able to suddenly get the $534M fine reduced at the last possible minute by the appellate court to $175M – which he can apparently come up with – so that his appeal may go forward – thus thwarting Erdogon and James initial ploy to block his ability to appeal their kangaroo court summary judgment.

          Like the T-Rex of old, the T-Rump is a dangerous dude to fuck with and damned hard to take down.

          All these black female lawfare shits and their cohorts remind me of the raptors in Jurassic Park jumping on T-Rex’s back and nipping at his spine, only to have T-Rex bite them in two and sling them away one by one.

      • River March 25, 2024 at 12:10 pm #

        I used to loathe Trump but at this point despite his refusal to call out the Covid Hoax, I’ll vote for him if RFKJ – after having been fighting the good fight for so long – chooses a weak, unknown glamour VP.

        We need an ultra-strong team and if Kennedy somehow feels he needs a woman as his VP then it better be someone publicly known as strong and intelligent like Tulsi Gabbard. Some say that she’s WEF but hopefully that’s a rumor.

        At this point I do wish that Kennedy and Trump would team up together for the good of the country… We need a strong team ready to crush Deep State, and Kennedy/Trump (doesn’t matter who is Pres vs VP) would be unstoppable.

        • Beryl of Oyl March 25, 2024 at 12:41 pm #

          I hope to God he doesn’t pick that rich DIE chick the media was talking about.

          That his campaign manager even thought “racial equity” work is a resume enhancer makes me want to throw my hand up in despair, or maybe just throw up.

          I wish that Tucker had actually grilled Tulsi about that, the WEF thing.

          You would think she was aware of the talk and eager to dispel it, wouldn’t you?

          • River March 25, 2024 at 1:01 pm #

            The nauseating ‘rich DEI chick’ is exactly who I was referencing!

            When asked if he’d consider being Trump’s VP, Kennedy laughingly replied that his wife would kill him… Well maybe his wife needs to give Hollywood a rest and think about what actions might most effectively keep this country from cascading further into a dystopian cesspool.

            Yes, I wish Tulsi would clarify the WEF rumors… Now I’d be OK with her – she’s tough as nails!

          • C.O.Jones March 25, 2024 at 1:02 pm #

            I can’t remember where I saw it but DEI really stands for Didn’t Earn It.

            I, too am waiting for tomorrow’s announcement of a running mate by RFK Jr. If he picks the ex-wife of that google oligarch, it will be a signal to all sentient beings that he is only kidding about…everything. Just because she paid for his super-bowl commercial doesn’t qualify her to be president if the deep state were to do what they did to his dad and uncle.

            @River – Tulsi was proudly displayed on the WEF website as one of their young global leaders or some such nonsense, as was Ivanka Trump. Trump himself hobknobs with herr Schwabenklausser.

          • Jarek March 25, 2024 at 1:04 pm #

            C.O., I know Tulsi was on their website back then. I’m curious as to what she has to say about it now.

            She may have just seen it as a way to get ahead.

          • Paula D March 25, 2024 at 8:14 pm #

            Tulsi, like others, has said that the WEF put her on their website without her permission.

            Apparently, they look for young, good-looking up-and-comers, and call them “Young Leaders”.

            They did the same thing to some guy in Canada, with the same result. People spouting trash about it, victim denying it. everyone ignoring the denial.

        CP – Consider the fact that most colonial subjects of King George III in 1776 either remained loyal or neutral between 1776-1781 because they simply couldn’t be bothered to risk upsetting the apple cart of their daily lives to back the play of Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, Washington and the rest of the Revolutionary Boys.

        Don’t let the fact that you are in the minority that gives a shit push you into BlackPill-ville.

      Just like they did with the Arizona elections in 2020 John. There is no way the Demoncraps won either the Presidential vote, or those for Congress, yet with a corrupt Secretary of State running for Governor, and a well-entrenched vote stealing system in place, the steal was done. Despite Republicans being aware, not sure the fraud and vote stealing can be overcome, but the Demoncraps are backing up their corrupt ways with violence to come this summer and fall here, and likely in Ukraine. Pure unadultered evil and corruption reigns.

  13. Zoltar March 25, 2024 at 10:16 am #

    THE TELL is always the same: within hours of the perpetration of some major official chicanery the Corporate Media all trumpet an identical message, without having time or need for any investigation whatsoever.

    “Trump accuses DNC of vote tampering without justification.”

    “The Covid pandemic originated in a fresh market near Wuhan.”

    “Russia invades Ukraine without provocation.”

    “ISIS-K bombs concert hall in Moscow.”

    ETC.

    In each case there are numerous plausible alternate hypotheses, all of which are summarily dismissed.

    In each case it would take months of serious investigation to determine the actual facts of the matter.

    And in each case every Blob mouthpiece happens to employ precisely the same wording, almost as if agreed upon beforehand – or directed from above.

    In these instances we citizens can no more determine the truth of things the next day than the Corporate Media can, but we can be certain of one thing: we are being lied to by those who know the truth of what has happened, and are likely responsible for it.

    • Cankerpuss March 25, 2024 at 10:22 am #

        That’s what got me to question the “official’ 9/11 story, was the speed at which the “hijackers” were identified. Having worked in a pathology department for a great many years, I knew it was impossible to make any identification without bodies. Yet, here they were, all plastered on TV. That served as the “crack” in the monolith for me.

        • Beryl of Oyl March 25, 2024 at 12:47 pm #

    Thanks Jim for your excellent write up. I have no doubt that the blob is involved in every minute detail behind this disaster in the Crocus theater.

    Of course they want to start a hot war. A hot war is the only way to continue to justify our enormous military budget and the very existence of the CIA. If there is peace, there is no need for a huge military and intelligence apparatus.

    These fuckers are evil. If they get their way it will be our sons and some of our daughters who will bleed. Not theirs.

      The old “Wag the Dog” strategy is bound to be implemented by this summer of Dementia Joe continues to resist stepping aside all while his poll numbers continue to erode. At some point they will simply need a major distraction to have any hope of de-railing the thundering Trump Train that is hurtling down the tracks in Biden’s direction. He will be squished like a penny laid on the rails unless he starts a MAJOR war to drive 99% of the campaign coverage off of the air.

  16. Paula D March 25, 2024 at 10:23 am #

    I interpret the fact that the Russians seem to be blaming Ukraine for this atrocity to mean that they do not want to start WW3.

    We all know who runs both ISIS and the Kiev regime. Pointing fingers at either is pointing a finger at Uncle Sam, but they are carefully avoiding saying so.

    And Maria Zakharova pointed out that the US still doesn’t know who killed JFK after 60 years, but they knew within an hour who done this dirty deed?
    Why would she pick the JFK assassination and not the Nordstream pipelines? I think it is to tamp down the war fever.

    Is Russia really going to suck up this horrendous act? It looks like it to me.

    But do I believe that four guys got instructions on the internet and managed to carry out a massacre PLUS start an enormous raging fire that destroyed the roof of a concert center, all in 10 minutes?
    (My husband and I had had trouble starting a fire in our stove the night before I read about that fire, so we both scoffed at the idea that it could be done without incendiaries, most likely pre-placed.)

    No, no, I do not believe that. You can’t get that kind of military instruction online, especially if you’re illiterate, which is another thing we were told.

    We are receiving the usual FUD propaganda that we get in every atrocity. They feed us bullshit in varying flavors, and let us argue over whatever story we latch onto. (People around here are fond of repeating propaganda they were fed 40 years ago, so it works.)

    • Socrates-Detroit March 25, 2024 at 4:18 pm #

      Did Maria Z say that?

      She is good!

      You’re right, I bet the US government is ultimately behind this.

      I’m just waiting for the other shoe to drop. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander?

      Why shouldn’t the Russian pay the US in its own coin?

      A well-done attack needn’t “rally people” around the government. The US government’s reaction (especially the Biden Administration!) can precipitate even sharper red/blue divisions, which in the long-term is more likely to affect the Military Industrial Complex, which is a concern for Russia. And China. And thinking Europeans. And anyone who doesn’t like war.

    • Blackbird March 25, 2024 at 7:21 pm #

      Paula, yes, four morons with guns did not start the blaze that burned the concert hall down. They were just patsies. This is much bigger than them.

      Sox, Putin retaliating in-kind? Why would he do that? So that the Big Guy can rally the sheeple for war with Russia? But if Putin won’t play tit-for-tat, we will surely run up a false flag to blame on him.

      Although my bet for a false flag is against Iran – “cyber attack” against international banking (don’t worry, the bankers will make out just fine – as they always do). Economic collapse = CBDC & martial law. War with Iran will allow us to fight Russia by proxy, keeping the destruction confined to the middle east.

        It’s been about 15-20 years since I read it. If viewed as a novel, it’s good read. If viewed as truth, it’s an even better read.

      • Paula D March 25, 2024 at 8:22 pm #

        Thomas Nogouchi, the LA coroner, determined the cause of death to be a bullet wound to the back of the head, from close range.

        No witnesses saw Sirhan to be any closer than 5 feet in FRONT of RFK.

        And yet, the Mighty Wurlitzer of propaganda has convinced most Americans that Sirhan dunnit. They completely ignore the coroner’s report and stick to their story, no matter what, even all these years later. And most Americans fall for it.

    What’s coming might as well be called “The War Among the Socialists.” With the exception of the MAGA crowd in the U.S., nearly every other political faction in the U.S. is now either Communist/Socialist or Fascist/Socialist. The mainstream Democrat Party (that’s the part with the wealthy corporatist elites financing the show) is largely Fascist/Socialist; the poorer–mostly quite stupid–rabble lead by the Squad is the Communist/Socialist faction. Both Socialist factions are busy calling the MAGA crowd the “Fascists,” despite the fact that the MAGA crowd does not adhere to single Fascist/Socialist tenet in their ideology.

    Internationally, the WEF and most of Western Europe is now mostly Fascist/Socialist and is stumping for the U.S. to become yet another Fascist/Socialist puppet state in the “New World Order”–likely better called the “Fourth Reich.” Communist China pretends to be Communist, but even it is behaving more and more like a Fascist/Socialist state. Russia, for its part, is more ideologically confused than anything. It can’t bring itself to become capitalist, but it doesn’t want to be full Communist again, and being led around by the nose of the Socialist/Fascist WEF (with or without the U.S.) doesn’t suit it either. As Russia doesn’t want to be a part of the “New World Order” makes it a target for destruction by the WEF, Western Europe, and the Democrat/RINO Fascist/Socialist neo-con WEF-ass-kissing U.S. political class. The irony of this is that a pro-capitalist MAGA Trump Administration in the U.S. may be the only way to avoid World War III. Right now, that is why the Democrat/RINO neo-con scum in D.C. seem so anxious to start World War III before the 2024 election. God help us.

      He promised everything to every (German) one. Put me in charge and you’ll have a good job, money, a CAR! Even pollution would go away!

      Another German, Klaus Schwab, promises EVERY ONE will be better off if we do as he and his masters want in the FOURTH Industrial Revolution.

      Klaus and Bill Gates and George Soros push “less is more” (for the masses, not themselves!), but essentially, they will save the planet and we will be universally content.

      “The Great Reset”. It’s all good, brothers and sisters!

    I wonder if somebody did this to distract from the pending Supreme Court case?

    Leslie Stahl on 60 minutes heroically took the side of government censorship, and rolled right over Jim Jordan.

    Now Ms. Stahl is a proven liar and I remember how Donald Trump wasn’t having any of it from her with that Russia Russia Russia nonsense.

    This time she decided the government should perhaps be able to step in in cases like the false stolen election claim, and actually bolstered her unproved statement that the election wasn’t stolen, with another unproved statement that “most people” don’t question who was the winner.

    Did he ask her who these “most people” are, or how she knows that for a fact?

    If the election were stolen, then “most people” do believe that it was.

    • sadlycdn March 25, 2024 at 11:11 am #

      • tuco22 March 25, 2024 at 11:35 am #

        Well, I don’t see that you can stop the steal again. The same people that were in place to facilitate the steal in 2020 are all still in their jobs today, including those democrat governors that allowed antifa and blm to riot and burn their cities and businesses (in Kenosha, Wisconsin, an entire car dealership). Short of what everyone wisely doesn’t want to mention publicly, given our “freedoms,” there isn’t any way to prevent it, and if there is, they’ll find a way to just not have an election. I really doubt if most of the hoi polloi would care, anyway.

        • Beryl of Oyl March 25, 2024 at 2:24 pm #

          Well Lara Trump had some really wild ideas, such as having trained personnel already in place if and when any untoward events occur at the polls.

          I thought that was Campaigns 101, but apparently Jared didn’t think of it, and we sat and watched the stealing happen right in plain sight, in the places where we knew cheating to be most likely.

          When I heard that Rudy Giuliani, an elderly man with serious health issues, was rushing to Pennsylvania on election night, I knew it was all over.

          It would be awkward, but they’d win (because there would be no way to scam a Dem win when the R or I ticket would poll well over 50%) and if they could work as a team RFKJ would be in an excellent position to run as Pres. in 2028 since it will be Trump’s second term and he’ll be out of the running. In fact, since it’s not about age, but mental acuity, RFKJ could conceivably end up in the WH for 12 years!

      There are reports the attack was delayed because security for a March 7th concert at Crocus was much, much heavier than the one this past Friday.

      • Paula D March 25, 2024 at 8:27 pm #

        Right. The US ”warning” they keep blathering on about, as part of the narrative, was a 48 hour warning.

        They planned to kill a bunch of young people at that concert, to disrupt the Russian election. (Why didn’t they just use Facebook ads?)

        But Russia put up heavy security for that one. They seem to have relaxed it after the election, but I hear that the US is trying for “regime change” as part of their propaganda.
        Yeah, “regime change” a week after the election. Nice try, dumbasses.

      oldandtired,

      There is a big difference between being extremely bright and being ruthless. Most of Blob THINKS that it is very bright and it works day and night to make the masses think that blob members are very bright. In fact, the Blob is not very smart, it is just ruthless. Ruthless people with power can cause unimaginable damage (look at Hitler and Stalin), but the more ruthless that they get, the more stupid decisions they make. Eventually, such ruthless people make very stupid and fatal decisions to themselves and their own cause. Think Hitler–he got drunk on power and by 1941, he was making evermore fatal decisions. It took until 1945 to rid the world of him, but he had screwed the pooch for himself and Germany by the autumn of 1941. The same fate awaits the leaders of the Blob–the only question is when their “1941” comes (it may have, already), and its “1945.” How much damage and death that the Blob causes in between is a matter of speculation, but, unfortunately, the answer is likely plenty.

      • Jarek March 25, 2024 at 12:51 pm #

        Hitler fought against the Blob and lost. If Hitler hadn’t fought, the Blob would have won too! Don’t blame Hitler for the Blob’s victory.

        The Blob would have been fine with Putin not invading Ukraine. They would have turned it into a globalist showpiece. And their weirdo, quasi Nazi thugs would have gotten none of what they wanted.

        The Russo-Ukrainians would have had to flee and it would have been a political disaster for Putin and his group. Big win for the Blob.

    The US has been talking about Ukraine switching to terrorism for a long time. They call it “asymmetrical warfare”, but it is terrorism against civilian populations, because Ukraine can’t win militarily.

    Victoria Nuland said that Russia would be in for a “nasty surprise”, before she resigned.

    Mark Milley told Ukrainian special forces to terrorize Russians.

    None of this is hidden, it just isn’t repeated 24/7, so most Americans ignore.
    Hey, how about Kate? Let’s all pray for her recovery. That’s what normies are focused on, because that is what the media tells them to focus on.

    “During one visit to Wiesbaden, Milley spoke with Ukrainian special operations troops — who were working with American Green Berets — in the hope of inspiring them ahead of operations in enemy-controlled areas.
    “There should be no Russian who goes to sleep without wondering if they’re going to get their throat slit in the middle of the night,” Milley said, according to an official with knowledge of the event. “You gotta get back there, and create a campaign behind the lines.”

    One thing is clear, the sophisticated weaponry & ordnance abandoned in Afganistan & dumped in Ukraine is finding it’s way onto the black market, an unprecedented weapons bazaars, a bonanza which will arm terror cells & criminal gangs worldwide, far into the future.

      The US military has plotted mass murdering & committing war on the population it supposedly protects, as far back to at least the 1960s, with such things as Operation Northwoods which: ….”was a proposed false flag operation that originated within the US Department of Defense of the United States government in 1962. The proposals called for CIA operatives to both stage and commit acts of terrorism against American military and civilian targets, blame them on the Cuban government, and would be used to justify a war against Cuba. The possibilities detailed in the document included the remote control of civilian aircraft which would be secretly repainted as US Air Force planes,[2] a fabricated ‘shoot down’ of a US Air Force fighter aircraft off the coast of Cuba, the possible assassination of Cuban immigrants, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas,[3] blowing up a U.S. ship, and orchestrating terrorism in U.S. cities.[2] [4] The proposals were rejected by President John F. Kennedy.[5][6][7]” (wikipedia)

      The US is more than willing & able to conduct mass murder on civilians anywhere, and everywhere.

      The most recent examples are countless in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

      Remember, one of the last official combat “actions” the US undertook in Kabul was to drone attack and murder an aid worker and most of his family.

    Well, ladies and germs;

    As you sit in your comfortable surroundings this AM, perhaps sipping coffee (or chugging vodka, if in the frozen wastes of Canada), consider the fate of the several accused gunmen captured in Russia after the Crocus Outrage. Russians are hard people. Their system of Penology, t heir rules of conduct, may offend those of even jaded human sensibilities. I am certain that the interrogations of the suspects in the Crocus event were…spirited. Medieval, even. Their lives will be a torment until they beg for death.

    But wait! Maybe they have friends in their corner…maybe…

    (5) PENNSYLVANIA ANARCHISTS MULL “INSURGENCY” STRATEGY: An anarchist blog posted a strategy that could move prison abolition activists from “mere activism to insurgency.”
    The missive posed several questions about the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, including: (1) How outside activists and prisoners on the inside could work in unison to foment the physical destruction of prisons, (2) What support systems and centers of gravity could be attacked to disrupt or destroy the prison system, (3) Where are the “chokepoints,” “vulnerabilities,” and other “targets for attack,” and (4) How outside activists could carry out operations without bringing undue punishment to prisoners on the inside.

    Yes! All hope may not be lost! They may have friends on the outside…eh?

    While sitting there I noticed the nursing home’s name on the wall behind the front desk. It was in large cursive lettering in a nice shade of red. The name is Parker. Beneath Parker in smaller black font was an encouraging message which said “We make aging part of life.”

    I began to laugh and Bo asked “what’s so funny?” I said I’m imagining the message under Parker being changed to read “Life’s a bitch and then you die.”

    In 1984 we see one side of a triad from the inside. One assumes the same conditions apply to Eastasia and Eurasia.

    However, Here on this site and in most forums, folk mostly buy in to the idea that Russia is real opposition to “the west”. Hmmmm

    While Russian generals and colonels are fighting like mad for real real, we get snippets that many high level Russians are like ‘finish it already’, however we have always been at war with Eurasia. So it drags on.

    Russia rolled out and heavily promoted covid, and their own deadly Astra Zeneca clone Sputnik V. Potatoe potato, I’m not sure Johnson and Johnson jabs are a step up from Pfizer/Moderna.

    I haven’t checked for 2 years but back then they had 60% uptake

    Internal debate and doctors speaking out about the dangers could be found, sounds just like the west. Lots of bad injuries and deaths. They appear to be trimming their population? Just like us.

    Russia would like CBDC and digital ID, just like our elite

    And that marvelous video of Putin in a bright yellow full on HazMat suit near the start of covid early 2020. Fear was stoked. Jabs in arms on warp speed. Hmmmm

    China is obviously trialling all the control measures, at least in severity if not structure. What can people take? It happened everywhere of course but China went furthest and hardest.

    China provided the excuse to lockdown the west.

    Strong links to whatever virus or deadly jab from China, yes?

    And here is something interesting, their Sinovac is said to be an inactivated virus, totally conventional and liable to be about as dangerous as a flu shot. So not very. Then Weinstein finds segregated self organized military age Chinese waiting to cross the border, long in a long line already I expect. They probably have viable sperm!

    I dunno. Just because the Russian dystopia looks a little different on the surface…. at the highest levels all important matters could be agreed. Putin cant help it if Ukraine actually couldn’t put up a better show, and that the west has bungled its public face of the war. He did his part? And he is dragging dragging it out.

    Lets all be alert to the idea that it is literally global and that at the highest levels at least the order and type of the major planned chaos events are agreed.

    First covid. Then disease X as may actually this time be dangerous. Then maybe a limited nuclear exchange brought under control by benevolent world parties, eg UN brokers peace after only 2 or 3 cities turned to green glass. Simultaneous is a cyber attack on banking AND the internet. Both go down. All debt (except that of the little folk) is lost, lost – records destroyed by terrorists. So sad. Guess we’re going to need a new money system…. Etc etc.

    Meanwhile both Russia and China benefit, in their own ways and in their own time.

    We have always been at war with Eastasia.

    Of course the vampire squids wont be able to keep the grid up. And there’s only 5000 of them worldwide who know the whole plan. So just below them, including likely some of their top minions, are folk who would choke on genocide of 4 billion. So their control is not capable of fine direction, they have to let misled and only partially corrupt minions execute bits of the plan, while the squids cross their fingers or appendages. Why stuff comes off the rails here and there, eg Brexit, their control is tenuous and were the whole awful plan be known that would be the end of them. It really is a war of ideas, and for hearts and minds. We can win that war.

        There are some pointers to powerful white hats. Omicron is weird, it shut down whatever original design pathway there was, is possible.

        And I think our hope is realistic. Here is an example, the British Royal family, who thought they were in the club, are NOT. King Charles was bought into a soft landing version of the real plan, but was unreliable. Off with his head (cancer for you). And cancer just everywhere in the royals.

        OK fine, another psyop. Could be. However if good evidence surfaces that the royals who die actually died, well now we are looking at a pretty small upper elite, who know the whole plan in its genocidal and dystopian glory. Which might not have even included the royals. If they die, well take note. We only have to kill maybe 5000 worldwide to rid us of their evil machinations? We can hope.

      Russia is not trying to trim its population.

      They were heavily de-populated by the collapse of the USSR. Dangerously so, as they still have not reached the replacement rate needed to maintain.

      They actually pay women well to get pregnant, give all kinds of bennies to families that reproduce.

      Women are given the option of staying home with children or going back to work with government paid childcare.

      And the astrazeneca vax is far less dangerous than the mrna jabs. Still dangerous because the original virus spike protein was meant to be a slow kill.

      Maybe wearing the hazmat suit was due to being out of the loop, as opposed to in on the planning.

      One of the 1st things Russia did was shut down those biolabs on their border, along with taking & securing ZNPP.

        The one thing that has not been investigated al all is the effect of the S Protein on the immune system. The effect of long term exposure.

        I remember that the over-reaction of the immune system in the lungs was the first killer noted and published to scare people. The Medicos put everyone affected on respirators and killed them. Then the pulmonary and cardiac blood clots started up, with no investigation on what might cause them.

        So I agree with your terminology, S Protein is a slow kill, both with the disease and the vaxx. The CDC just keeps trying to pump it into us.

      • GrantK March 25, 2024 at 4:57 pm #

        “Far less dangerous”? Perhaps, perhaps not. Somewhat less dangerous is probably fair although thrombotic near term effects may be worse on the adenovirus vectored style jabs.

        You may be right. Who knows? Not me. I only present a broad overview. Where 1984 is not just Winston and Britain, but the total package where Eurasia is playing a similar game on the other side.

        And a thing, we are confronted with bizarre contradictory policies in the west near daily. Some well meaning element of the gov is trying to do one thing and another is doing something contrary. Consider the point I am trying to make, the vampire squids who know the whole picture are just a tiny tiny minority. Just below them is compartmentalization stacked on compartmentalization with corrupt (but only partially corrupt) minions executing different aspects of ‘the plan’. The squids do not have fine control. Nor can they let even top minions in on the genocide and bring down society truth. They work from the shadows and also are subject to luck and happenstance. My point? The Russian gov could absolutely be trying to incentivise birth rate at exactly the same time as the real plan is to kill off say 20%. Its only a contradiction if you think like 20% of the Russian gov is ‘in on it’. I bet, if my bleak view is right, that only .01% percent are ‘in on it’. The rest think they are in the club, they are not.

        I hope you are right. It is hopeful to imagine that somewhere truth and good government exist.

          2 big dangers with the mRNA jabs:

          1. They give many, many multiples of the spike protein more than trad vax. A traditional vax gives a set amount, no more.

          2. They did everything they could to stabilize the mRNA. RNA of all types is meant to destroyed immediately after it does its job because it causes inflammation. They deliberately set it up to persist, causing chronic inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation is deadly.

          3. The longer the mRNA persists, the better the chances it gets converted to DNA by the enzyme reverse transcriptase and moved into the cell nuclease to be ome patt of one’s genome. Worse, without a “stop” signal. An individual can be turned literally into spike factory. Working 3 shifts.

          • GrantK March 26, 2024 at 8:34 am #

            Thank you. I can amplify a little, possibly clarify?

            Are you aware that only Sinovac is a trad vax? There is also uncontrolled production of spike with the Astra zeneca/J+J/Sputnik V, and these represent variations on the new and radically different ‘vaccine’, if you can call it that, alongside the Pfizer Moderna lipid nanoparticle delivery system.

            While this adenovirus vectored platform appears to have a mildly better and different side effect profile to the lipid nanoparticle mRNA delivery type, it remains a full order of magnitude worse than say the flu shot or other ‘trad’ vaxxes, and while it delivers the instruction set to the cell as DNA inside the chimp virus, it ends up presenting mRNA to the ribosomes as the spike producing step, just like Pfizer Moderna. The DNA in the adenovirus vectored is coded to get the nucleus of the transfected cell to produce the same nobel prize winning! stabilized ‘Mod’ RNA as is delivered directly in the lipid nanoparticle based Moderna and Pfizer jabs. So once produced it has the same potential to cause cells to crank out spike until….. no one knows…. the cell is offed by killer T cells…, dies of exhaustion….., never stops, all of the above?

            Of the spike based platforms novovax (sp) is the only one with a fixed dose of spike, the others produce the spike internal to cells in an unpredictable fashion. The spike being independently pathogenic I wouldn’t take it either.

            The adenovirus vectored have to date been studied much less, in the west, as it represents a smallish or small proportion of total shots. So less is known by a lot. But deadly nonetheless, its like if Pfizer was a 100% dangerous then Sputnik V would be 90% and the flu shot would be 2%.
            Something like.

            You may well know all of that and more, however because your reply implies? that the adenovirus vectored vaxxes, including Sputnik V, are ‘trad’ I thought I would amplify.

          • mary.m March 26, 2024 at 12:37 pm #

            Ok, it was a stretch to call adenovirus-vector “traditional.”

            Re: flu vaccines, per Dr Michael Yeadon, former vp of research, respiratory diseases & allergies, flu vaccines have no side effects and *no effectiveness* because they don’t do really do anything! ( He was head of base research, not product devrlopment)

            It should not be able to replicate as:

            “For both the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19[46] and Gam-COVID-Vac vaccines the producer cells for the production of non-replicating adenoviral vectors were obtained from the HEK 293 cell line.[47] Each dose of Gam-COVID-Vac contains (1.0 ± 0.5) × 1011 virus particles.[34]”.

            “For the production of the vaccine, to propagate adenoviral vectors in which the E1 gene was deleted, HEK 293 cells are used, which express several adenoviral genes, including E1.[49][50] However, although rare, homologous recombination between the inserted cellular sequence and the vector sequence can restore the replication capacity to the vector,[51] with less than 100 replicating adenovirus particles per dose of the vaccine.[48]”

            Side effects are mostly mild and similar to other adenovirus vector vaccines such as the Oxford-AstraZeneca and the Janssen vaccines. However, *unlike the Oxford-AstraZeneca and Janssen vaccines evidence does not suggest a risk of vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia*.[40]

            “On April 13, 2021, India’s health ministry said its drug regulator had found that safety and immunogenicity data from a local trial of Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine was comparable to that of a late-stage trial done in Russia.[81]”

            Two preliminary studies, one from Argentina and one from San Marino, found mostly mild adverse events and no vaccine-associated deaths.[40] Another study carried out in San Marino has concluded a high tolerability profile in the population aged ?60 years in terms of short-term adverse events following immunization.[204]

            An article published by the journal Nature on 6 July 2021 cited data released by the United Arab Emirates on some 81,000 individuals who had received Sputnik V, according to which the vaccine demonstrated an efficacy of 97.8% in preventing symptomatic COVID-19, and 100% efficacy in preventing severe complications. The figures echoed similar findings from unpublished data on 3.8 million Russians, according to which Sputnik V demonstrated an efficacy of 97.7%.[205]

            A study published by the Journal of Medical Internet Research analyzed the dataset consisted of 11,515 self-reported Sputnik V vaccine adverse events posted on Telegram. Telegram users complained mostly about pain, fever, fatigue, and headache.[206]

            pubmed/34662291/

            Conclusions: After the Sputnik V vaccination, Russian Telegram users reported mostly pain, fever, and fatigue. The Sputnik V AE profile was comparable with other vector COVID-19 vaccines.

          • GrantK March 26, 2024 at 2:27 pm #

            For some reason there is no reply possible to your latest post so put it here.

            I believe you are confusing replication of the adenovirus with replication of the modRNA. No one is suggesting the actual delivery package, the adenovirus with its DNA payload, is subject to uncontrolled replication.

            The DNA in that (non replicating) adenovirus goes to the nucleus of the transfected cell. Once in the nucleus it initiates the production, at that point for the first time, of the modRNA common to between the adenovirus and ‘mRNA’ platforms.

            That modRNA comes from a different source than Pfizer Moderna but it is the same strengthened RNA as won the Nobel prize. This modRNA then does the same thing as it would if it showed up direct in the cell via lipid nanoparticles a la Pfizer. It gets the ribosomes to produce uncontrolled amounts of spike.

            You then relay a series of reports which say Sputnik is safe as houses. I’m not going to go through them all and determine if they have similarity to the voluminous and extensive set of papers which prove Pfizer is safe, I will say it would be trivially easy to trot out 10 or 20 papers which glowingly report efficacy and safety for Pfizer/Moderna. The ‘efficacy’, for a singular simple example on first pass, is highly likely to the the misused misinterpreted ‘relative’ efficacy the Pfizer Janssen Moderna Astra Zeneca crowd used, instead of the more useful and traditional measure of ‘absolute efficacy’.

            Hey, maybe even though it is pretty much identical to the western adenovirus ‘vaxxes’, for which we have sound knowledge they are thereabouts as bad as Pfizer, it performs simply enormously better and is like totally safe. Those clever Russians turned a bolt or two in a complex process and rendered it both efficacious and safe, despite it is as I said almost identical to Astra Zeneca.

            I feel you have some ‘skin in the game’ and wish to believe the best of the Russians and their astra zeneca clone, well I dont say it is impossible. I doubt it though.

        • Paula D March 26, 2024 at 11:00 am #

          But does that mean that they are all in cahoots? Not in my opinion.

    “…‘Joe Biden’ is only a figment of American politics… A figment of our greater intel blob, led, of course, by the Central Intelligence Agency.”

    Did you know the Beatles wrote a song about The Resident? Yes! Come on, You know the words…

    “He’s a real nowhere man
    Sitting in his nowhere land
    Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
    Doesn’t have a point of view
    Knows not where he’s going to
    Isn’t he a bit like you and me?
    He’s as blind as he can be
    Just sees what he wants to see
    Nowhere Man can you see me at all?
    He’s a real Nowhere Man
    Sitting in his nowhere land
    Making all his nowhere plans for nobody”

    “We are the United Blob of America! In Blob We Trust…”

    One of the dictionary definitions of ‘Blob’ is… “a large object having no distinct shape or definition”.

    But the United States Incorporated, a/k/a “The United Blob of America” DOES in fact have a distinct shape. And that shape is the long and huge and countless tentacles of The Dark State Demented Octopus. Reaching into everyone and everything on this Planet and violating and polluting it with its essential vigorous toxicity and moral bankruptcy. A huge and ugly creature… much uglier than anything seen on those great old ‘B’ grade horror monster movies of the 1950s.

    Tentacles that reach all the way around the Globe in multitudes of directions and reaching around to be able to give itself tentacle-handshakes.

    “The United Blob sent lavish condolences to President Putin… We’re so sorry.”

    In the old TV series ‘The Untouchables’ they would often show one gangster group laying waste and finishing off another gangster or group of them… and the first gangster group would always do one thing after that: Send flowers to the poor victims. Gee, who knew World foreign policy responses could be learned from a 1960s TV show?

    “We might surmise that the ‘Joe Biden’ re-election campaign seeks a big, fat, juicy major distraction from its so-far pathetic effort to keep a near-mummy in the White House.”

    One correction needed for the above. The words “Joe Biden’ re-election”… should be amended to ‘Joe Biden ELECTION’. To be re-elected you need to have been elected the first time.

    But whatever happens in our days ahead… in the famous words of The Pointer Sisters… “You got to believe in somethin’.” And the United Blob of America says…

    “In Blob We Trust!”

        I seem to recall catching a short portion of that a long time ago, along with hearing about Jensen getting into a bit of hot water maybe because of it or related to it, but I didn’t think anything of it at the time. What are you getting at?

        Jensen apparently rejects the label, ‘anarchist’, and there are enough anarchists, or so-called anarchists, who agree and take exception to some of Jensen’s ‘hierarchical’, etc., politics.

        But of course, in nature, there are a lot of mimics. So I take a lot with a grain of salt.

        As for pedophilia– whatever that is– we already had an small exchange about it if you will recall and my position hasn’t changed. As I may have mentioned, I used to deliver the paper in my teens to apartment building complexes with many single, hot women in bachelor apartments and I wouldn’t have given a damn about any age laws if any of them had expressed an interest. But of course there is a difference between puberty/post-puberty as I was and pre-puberty and also wilful intent and not and stuff like that.

        So with that in mind, I’d be cautious about what they’re talking about exactly WRT this Jeopardy thing.

        How about you? I imagine you have some thoughts?

        • Jarek March 26, 2024 at 12:21 am #

          Yes, indeed I do remember your emphatic rejection. But Jensen says anarchism as a whole strongly endorses this. Do you disagree with him? Anarchism does have a mainstream after all – even despite itself.

          • The Man They Call Zazelle March 26, 2024 at 7:47 pm #

            I don’t know what they or he means by it. If under puberty is what’s meant for example, are they still anarchists? Were they ever?

            If Statists break their own laws are they still Statists? Were they ever?

            If a Christian sins, are they still a Christian? Were they ever?

          • Jarek March 26, 2024 at 9:46 pm #

            Good point. John Locke simply said children were people and had rights – chief among them being the right to be exploited like everyone else (he left that part out).

            Alas I would wager that Jensen is right in terms of the majority – and it speaks well of you for not being one of them.

            A very, very vocal minority? Perhaps. Someone said that the big five queer theorists were all Tribe. And Jensen’s intense distaste with their pov speaks well of him.

            If a Christian commits a mortal sin, they are mortally wounded or spiritually dead until they repent. But yes, it could have been real before they fell from it. We’re not angels able to give our unwavering consent to something and never change from it.

            By that light, Anarchism could be seen as a spiritual discipline that one can indeed fail and repent in order to regain.

    As all the world in general knows, everyone has an opinion about something. They’re not all equal, but, sometimes one person’s opinion stands out to me. Such was the prophecy by one Gary Cardone (one half of the Cardone Twins phenomenon).

    On Michelle Makori’s (KITCO News) show, a short while ago, Gary made a startling prediction: He said (and I loosely paraphrase) that ‘he would be very surprised if there is not a major Black Swan Event before August’, and furthermore he was ‘95% certain’ that this would happen so that he would ‘wager $100,000 on his prediction’.

    That got my attention just from the sheer audacity of the man’s certainty, so I did a bit of research on this man I’d never heard of. He’s a very smart investor who ‘reads the tea leaves’ of the zeitgeist as well as anyone, and much of his financial best bets have come from that. And $100,000 is a lot of money (still) despite Gary’s millions (he didn’t get rich by throwing his money around).

    The other side of this coin is that I seem to have some sort of Inner Radar in my consciousness. I often seem to realize, ahead of the ‘popular curve’, when certain things need to be heeded. And Gary’s prediction somehow sent off my ‘bogey spotted 100 miles out radar’.

    I mention this in response to those who are still thinking in Normalcy Bias Mode. Jim was when he wrote this, “this might just be the blob’s last stand, since they know as soon as Mr. Trump gets back in the White House (if the blob can’t manage to kill him first)…”.

    I reckon the Blob has a better Ace up their sleeve than a simple assassination – such as gigantic monkey wrench that upsets the whole apple cart, metaphorically speaking.

      In fact, during his recent interview with Tucker Carlson, former U.S. Representative Ron Paul specifically warned about the potential for a black swan event…

      Ron Paul, recognized for his consistent principles and foresight into economic and foreign policy, used the platform to express his concerns about unexpected, significant events that could catch the world by surprise.

      “I think we’re reaching this point where some sudden thing is going to happen. I believe in that theory of the black swan. Yes, it’s going to pop up, and it’s not going to be controllable,” Paul said.

        “House Chooses New Cold War with Russia”

        “Last week the US House voted overwhelmingly in favor of an anti-Russia resolution so full of war propaganda that it rivals the rhetoric from the chilliest era of the Cold War. Ironically, much of the bill condemns Russia for doing exactly what the US government has been doing for years in Syria and Ukraine!”

        “The resolution condemns Russia for what it claims are attempts to ‘illicitly acquire information’ about the US government. But we learned from the Snowden revelations that the NSA is spying on most of the rest of the world, including our allies! How can the US claim moral authority to condemn such actions in others?”

        “..this is one of the worst pieces of legislation I can remember. And trust me, I have seen some pretty bad bills. It is nothing but war propaganda and it will likely lead to ALL SORTS OF UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES.”

        “ONLY TEN MEMBERS – five from each party – opposed this reckless resolution.”

        (CAPS are mine)

        From Ron Paul’s Freedom Report. Vol. 17, No. 10 – December 2014

        Ron Paul called it.

        ONLY 10 Congressmen/women could be found. Only FIVE supposed constitutionalists (aka conservatives) and only FIVE supposed “doves” (aka anti-war liberals).

        That was in 2014. That’s why US foreign/military policy won’t change much, if at all. Because “the blob” owns and controls both major parties and all the key positions.

    “Lastly, Gandhi developed the concept of nonviolent revolution, to be seen not as a programme for the seizure of power, but as a programme for transforming relationships. The concept sits neatly with the observation of the German anarchist, Gustav Landauer (1870-1919): ‘The state is a condition, a certain relationship between beings, a mode of behaviour; we destroy it by contracting other relationships, by behaving differently.’

    In its first decade several themes, theories, actions, all distinctly libertarian, began to come to the fore and were given intellectual expression by the American anarcho-pacifist, Paul Goodman (1911-72) (36): anti-militarism, the rediscovery of community, community action, radical decentralism, participatory democracy, the organisation of the poor and oppressed inter-racially, and the building of counter-culture and counter-institutions (such as new co-ops, collectives and communes).

    The collapse of the New Left coincided with the exhaustion of the less well-publicised Sarvodaya (welfare of all) movement for nonviolent revolution in India, led by Vinoba Bhave and Jayaprakash Narayan (1902-1979), which had sought through voluntary villagisation of land to realise Gandhi’s dream of an India of village republics. The implication of Sarvodaya for the subject of this book is brought out by the statement of Jayaprakash Narayan: ‘In a Sarvodaya world society the present nation states have no place.’ ” ~ Geoffrey Ostergaard, ‘Resisting The Nation State’

      Now that I’m more aware of the manipulation of the public through the media, I realize that Gandhi was a media creation.

      The UK couldn’t hold onto the Grand Jewel anymore, and Gandhi was used to bring about a transition that didn’t involve more war. The propaganda telling us how wonderful and peaceful he was, and how he singlehandedly ended the Crown rule was amazing, and it worked.

      I think that MLK, Jr. was also a media creation. The USSR was making headway in former colonies after WW2, pointing out that similarities between Jim Crow and the Nazi policies of apartheid of the Jews.

      The feds decided that Jim Crow had to go, so they had the Supreme Court decide that school segregation was outlawed, they sent in troops (the hell with Posse Comitus), and they elevated MLK, Jr. to saint status, using the precedent of Gandhi, to boot. Why not? We’d already been conditioned to think so.

      Right up until MLK, Jr. spoke out against the Vietnam War. Then they offed him.

      But Jim Crow was kaput, and that took away the propaganda points.

      Then they used TV and movies to make the US look really, really good to the Third World, and many of them still believe.

        I wrote the below at the late Jan Lundberg’s site, Culture Change, 10 years ago:
        (culturechange.org/cms/content/view/924/68/)

        —-

        “Peter Gelderloos claims that traditional histories whitewash the impact of nonviolence, ignoring the involvement of militants in such movements as the Indian independence movement and the Civil Rights movement and falsely showing Gandhi and King as being their respective movement’s most successful activist. He further argues that nonviolence is generally advocated by [the] privileged… ”

        “William P. Meyers argued that nonviolence encourages violence by the state and corporations… with notions of non-violence in a deliberate (and successful) attempt to render [groups] harmless and ineffective.”

        “D. A. Clarke… suggests that for nonviolence to be effective, it must be ‘practiced by those who could easily resort to force if they chose’. This argument reasons that nonviolent tactics will be of little or no use to groups that are traditionally considered incapable of violence, since nonviolence will be in keeping with people’s expectations for them and thus go unnoticed.”

        “Indian guru Osho Rajneesh heavily criticised teachings of nonviolence, on psychological and spiritual grounds:
        ‘…For five thousand years people have been taught to be non-violent; they have learnt the trick of pretending. And all that has happened is that they have repressed their violence… Let there be a riot, and all that piousness simply evaporates as if it had never been there…
        This violence erupts again and again in this country because of the teaching, a wrong teaching, which is based on repression. Whenever you repress something, it will come up again and again.
        I teach you awareness, not repression. That’s why I don’t talk about nonviolence. (…) And the more you become aware, the more your life will attain to silence, peace, love. They are by-products of awareness.” ~ Wikipedia

        “Gandhi was not a pacifist; he believed in the right of those being attacked to strike back and regarded inaction as a result of cowardice to be a greater sin than even the most ill-considered aggression.”
        ~ What Gandhi Says About Nonviolence, Resistance and Courage, by Norman G. Finkelstein

        —-

        The interesting thing is that our host moved into a bit of a village (while he writes about ‘The Outside’ [Blob, etc.]), a bit in the spirit of that Gandhiesque ‘voluntary villagisation of land‘ as in my quotes above, while people are slowly ‘taking their law into their own hands’ again and making their own forms of anarchy and self-empowerment, sans State, work, such as apparently in Texas WRT the immigration influx.

    “…it is clear that the existence of a centralized state vastly increases both the profit and the prevalence of violence. The fact that the violence is masked by obedience in no way diminishes the brutality of coercion. All moralists interested in one of the greatest topics of ethicsñ the reduction or elimination of violenceñ would do well to understand the depth and degree to which the existence of a centralized state promotes, exacerbates and profits from violence… as we can see from countless examples throughout history, violence always escalates until civil society is utterly destroyed. Because the state so directly profits from violence, eliminating the state can in no way increase the use of violence within society. Quite the contrary… eliminating the state will, to a degree unprecedented in human history, eliminate violence as well.” ~ Stefan Molyneux

      Gandhi also was a protectionist. You could even say he was for India First.

        An interesting parallel in what you write WRT textile imports is WRT the panel discussion video about Haiti that Paula D mentioned in the previous threads and its mention of the economic dumping of overseas rice that placed a strain on Haiti’s local production.

        • Paula D March 26, 2024 at 11:20 am #

          I remember after their earthquake Amy Goodman mentioned that Haiti was self sufficient in rice until the 90s, but now they are dependent on US imports.

          Say what? I had not known that before.

          I remember back in the 80s, the Evil Reagan was trying to force Japan to open their rice market to US rice, which pissed me off, because I lived in California, and was very careful with my use of water, because of the droughts.

          But they were growing rice in the fucking desert??? Wasting all that water.
          And then trying to force Japanese farmers off their land, to boot?

          Japan refused to comply, and the US turned on them big time.

          Haiti apparently buckled.

          So did Mexico, with NAFTA. After they signed that treaty, the US started exporting tons of corn to Mexico.
          The small farmers couldn’t compete, so they lost their land.

          12 million of them came to the US over the next decade or so, to work as unskilled labor here, many of them taking jobs that Americans used to do, before the Evil Reagan broke the unions.

            There are reasons why we see signs that say ‘Don’t feed the wild animals.’. Perhaps it’s in large part because they become dependent.

          Hey, OG. Nice to hear from you again!

          The problem with your view is that Zaz’s sole function on this board is to flood it with his pet ideology. When one is so obsessed with a singular worldview, it is obvious to conclude that every quote he musters is on behalf of that worldview, especially as it pertains to issues directly appropriate to anarchism’s purview, e.g. centralized gov’t.

          Zaz can’t have it both ways. He’s denied the link before, but that’s just deflection and passive-aggressive absolution of his own views. The only confusion is in his own mind, not that of any readers.

          To be quick about it, stating a problem with central gov’t structures doesn’t automatically mean that anarchy is the solution.

Apparently, reading comprehension only works if you’re smart enough to actually comprehend anything other than “anarchism good”.

            As to Zinn, I, again, “ad hommed” him because the man was an inveterate liar, by his own admission. Why would you be in support of someone’s opinion who constantly lies? (We’ll leave aside the fact that he was a jet setter, only after the $$.)

            Wikipedia: does it need to be explained to you that the entire operation is Woke, and can easily be (and is) manipulated by anyone with a computer and an IQ hovering at 70 to represent whatever crackbrain ideology they favour?

            Yes, it’s very brave to publish poetry criticism, as a practicing poet, in Canada of the negative evaluative kind. You wouldn’t know how that affects one because you know nothing about anything.

            Why should I publish my real name on a highly controversial anti-PTB blog. So that I can be more easily tracked by them? So that you can doxx me? Are you this incredibly naive, or just obtuse beyond hope?

            Just pointless massaging of your own self-image or something it seems.

            Frankly, I really don’t care what your sociopolitical notions are. What concerns me is where they attempt to blanket people who don’t want them, who don’t want anything to do with them.

            Like the State.

            I’m not talking about ‘his philosophy’. This is not a treatise on Molyneux’s philosophy.

            When you meet someone, do you tell them your life’s story? Or do you start with some kind of ice-breaker?

            I could go on and split hairs like that too but that’s my point: It quickly becomes a ridiculous road that splits into nowhere.

          The problem, OG, and as I just pointed out, is that if you look closely, Soul Forensics doesn’t actually have anything.

          There’s nothing there.

          Just hot-air ‘filler’ consisting of destructive criticism, minus anything constructive.

          In drive-by/snipe style.

            Ok, well that’s about as flaccid as Soul Forensic’s stuff.

            Difference is they icing & filler it all up with assorted distractions– noises, snarl words, posturings & puff-outs, etc..

            Have you ever attended university? Maybe not some of what pass for the ones in North America nowadays. But even so,
            if the prof asked you that question and that was your answer, you’d likely fail that test or essay.

            Same thing for a court case; same thing for a science periodical.

            ‘I saw some videos and that’s what I thought.’ is hearsay, yes? ‘One of us’ is also problematic for reasons that should be obvious. Who’s ‘one of us’?

            And so on and so on… splitting the road into nowhere… until you forget where you began. (Maybe that’s part of the point too.)

            Incidentally, you don’t have to wash your entire self of the ‘status-quo’, however you may view it. Doing so just just seems to run the risk of eroding your capacity to make concise judgements about reality, strange bedfellows and all that.

            Believe it or not, we do share things with the status-quo and our purported ‘others’, including even (gasp) the so-called Woke.

            Soul Forensics, referencing Molyneux is not an endorsment of Molyneux’s politics or his love life, etc.. It’s a reference of his/that quote, pure and simple.

            So your ‘issues’ WRT that is/are a bit of a red herring/straw-man/ad-hom, all rolled into one. As one who appreciates a tight concept, in a peculiar way, you are saluted.

            As for your excuse about not providing your name, etc., ‘cuz spooks’, unless you’re snowing us, you’ve already provided a fair bit of personal info in the brief time I’ve been posting; your age, general location, type of work and that it is or will be published and by which State.
            This is all without perusing the archives and without any other method your spooks might have at their disposal.

            But you see, it all detracts from the point of the quote, doesn’t it?

            Saying he isn’t a White Nationalist is libelous? In what court? Saying he is might be since White Nationalism is the ultimate evil, supposedly.

            But again, the deeper issue: Everything comes from somebody. Why can’t that somebody sometimes be me? I have no right to a judgement, an opinion? Or no right to express it?

            Back to the surface again: You think he is a White Nationalist?

            Deeper again: The Judge wanted our judgement, but of course only within the narrow framework of the system. The juror’s veto is long gone. If someone mentioned that, they’d be dismissed immediately.

    I have a quite strong tendency towards an often delusional type of catastrophic thinking, as a personal coping strategy, for what I sometimes mistakenly view as a completely hostile world.

    But I really get anxious when what I take to be real-world networks of power seem to also be going off the deep end:

    “Well, how about the World War they’ve been itching for? Plus they probably calculate it’d be great for business.”

    Russia now has a domestic justification to really finish off Ukraine and important factions of our Blob may now feel that the potential Trump threat to their existence demands some type of international escalation.

    Is there enough nurturing left in ourselves and the world to contain the oncoming apocalypse?

    • Paula D March 26, 2024 at 11:29 am #

      Russia doesn’t want to “really finish off Ukraine”.

      They consider Ukraine part of Russia and most Ukrainians as Russians.

      They don’t care much about the Polish/Nazi part staying around.

    • mary.m March 26, 2024 at 1:10 pm #

      As one analyst put it the other day, “there goes the hope for a rump Ukraine state.”

      Or words to that effect.

      So I think by “finishing off,” Jim could mean finishing off Ukraine as a sovereign state & return it to being “the Hinterlands” of Russia.

      • Paula D March 26, 2024 at 6:48 pm #

        Maybe. I’m not familiar with this poster’s views.

        But most Americans mean “finish” to mean “kill them all and let God sort them out.”

        It’s just how we are raised.

  45. Q. Shtik March 25, 2024 at 2:38 pm #

    My two grandsons and their parents came up from Maryland for a visit this past weekend. The occasion was the 12th birthday on Friday of the older boy. The younger boy will turn 11 in early May, just one year and 41 days apart. Almost like “Irish twins.”

    The parents of these boys always have enriching activities lined up to do every weekend. On Friday we all visited Uncle Pete at the nursing home where the birthday boy gave us an energetic demonstration of a martial arts routine he learned in a class both boys attend.

    Yesterday, Sunday, the activity was bowling which we did at a place called Majestic Lanes in Perth Amboy, NJ. There are 40 lanes and much to my surprise the place was packed. I didn’t realize bowling was still “a thing.”

    I would describe the clientele of this place as a low rent motley crew. Every ethnicity known to man, scruffy kids and their parents and everybody scarfing down pizza, fries, and sodas from the snack shop. I found it all very depressing.

    In the lane just to our left was a group of trannies. Bo said “no, they aren’t trannies they are just very “butch” gay women.” The most “butch” of this crew was sooo masculine you would never know “she” was a woman except for two small breast bumps under a nondescript sweat shirt. She had very short hair and one arm thoroughly tatted from hand to shoulder.

    It seemed that no one in this place knew how to bowl to save their ass. One person I watched fired the bowling ball with both hands like a basketball chest pass from 4 or 5 feet above the floor and it landed with a crash.

    I couldn’t get my grandsons to insert the correct fingers in the holes of the ball. Where there are two holes side by side they kept putting in their index and middle fingers rather than their middle and ring fingers.

    For all these inept bowlers a button could be pushed which would raise a set of bumpers that prevented the ball from going in the gutters. This was another sign that times have truly changed since back in my mid-teens when I used to set pins in a bowling alley.

    This afternoon of bowling made me lament not only the collapse of Western Civilization but of all life as we know it.

        Did punks used to try to break the ankles of the pin boys – Jar

        =============

        No, all the bowlers were serious league players.

        I had balls and pins crash into my legs a few times but I’m sure the fault was mine, not the bowlers. You had to keep your eyes open and make sure you were out of the pit before the ball arrived.

        Sometimes a pin setter who was especially fast and energetic would cover two alleys at the same time. This made it more dangerous than just one lane.

        Now, of course, there is no need for human pin setters. It is all automated and the system even keeps all the bowlers scores.

        The thing with the bumpers that blocked the ball from going in the gutters was totally new to me. Never saw it before.

        It was the mid -1950s when I set pins for league bowlers on certain days of the week. As I recall, I made $15.30 a week. There was a rack with ten slots in it. When you filled the slots you pulled a cord and the rack went down and deposited the pins in there proper places. I developed the skill to jump in the pit, pick up 3 pins in each hand and cleverly deposit them in six slots all in one motion; then bend over and pick up two more pins in each hand and fling them into the remaining slots, then pull the cord.

        I also enjoyed the flair of pulling the cord before all 10 pins were in the rack and at the last moment flinging the final pin into the head pin slot at the last possible moment. Like any job, a worker develops a certain art to his performance.

          Yes, it sounds wonderful. Let’s see if we can find a video of it on youtube.

          I assume a large ball could break an ankle. If the victim was unable to get up in time, the next one could be aimed at his head for the coup de grace.

            ===========

            All the balls are the same size (diameter/circumference) but they can weigh more or less. I believe 16 lbs was the standard maximum. Yes, they could break an ankle or leg.

      No mention of Peter! Your eager audience slumps and sighs.

      Funny about bowling. Down Texas way there are women and men who spend (or spent) so much time at the alleys that they became quite skilled. My late sister, all four feet ten inches of her, was one.

      I bet there are pockets of seriously dedicated bowlers around the nation, most likely in the hinterlands. It’s a harmless, sociable activity and good exercise to boot, if you don’t go and make a fool of yourself.

        ============

        Today marks two months and 3 days since Peter entered the Parker at Somerset Nursing Home and he is none too happy about being there. His belief that there is nothing wrong with him is laughable. The place is first rate. He’s in a brand new wing. He has an excellent room with a great view out the window. The food and care are top notch. Bo decorated the room with photos and artwork. He says to Bo, “I’m walking out of this hotel tomorrow.” He has no idea that he’s 5 miles from our house. He can’t even walk 50 feet using a cane or walker. The staff would never let him out the door anyway. It’s all bravado.

        My wife Bo, Peter’s sister, got a phone call yesterday asking if she was OK with increasing the dosage of a particular medication because Peter was “acting up.” He verbally abused and tried to hit one of the aids who care for him. What a job, taking Peter to the bathroom, changing a shitty diaper and cleaning his shitty ass.

    An electric grid collapse?

    A “hack” of oil pipelines on a bigger scale then the Colonial Pipeline shutdown?

    The declaration of martial law & no Presidential election this year? (I wonder if that is in the works).

    Or, maybe absolutely nothing at all.

    Just more of the same. The slow ebb & tide of a slowly, sliding declining US empire that is choking on too many financial rackets & ponzi schemes, and elites who are desperately attempting to redirect a restive proletariat towards a new enemy anywhere, anyplace—- but failing miserably.

      “Black Swan events”. – PeteAtomic

      =============

      People on this site and just about everywhere have a misconception of Black Swans. They think they are always bad events. But this is not the case and people would know this if they read The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. Such events can be either good or bad. What makes them black swans is that they are utterly unexpected and cannot even be conceived of as something that may happen someday.

      An bad event such as an electric grid collapse does not meet the qualification of a black swan event because it is very conceivable and often predicted.

      A good black swan event would be, for example, the arrival from another galaxy of beings who traveled at a million times the speed of light and delivered to us earthlings an overnight cure for all cancers.

          Q., I bet this is one of those “editing errors” where a writer changed his mind, then went back to mend a sentence but failed to correct the article, from “an” to “a”.

          Word processors are like that – although their nanny-features are getting more and more ferocious, in terms of alerting a writer to possible errors.

          I had Mickeysoft Word attempt to “correct” a draft letter to an Ambassador I had been assigned to write, commencing with “Your Excellency”. The goofy-gates program suggested “You’re”.

          Another, more recent clinker I caught on a website was the following: “Despite the fact that the level hasn’t been this low since 2008, though, the deputy director general of the Quebec Maple Syrup Producers says no immediate shortage or prince jumps are expected.”

          Word-processing alerts will undoubtedly get to a point where an oddity like “prince jumps” will get automatically flagged, although in fact it is grammatically correct.

          In the meantime, the accuracy and general readability of articles on the web continues on a death spiral. All I can imagine composing them is a legion of starving liberal arts grads working at minimum-wage, writing a first draft and then tossing it off. No editor, no proofreader.

          Were I to point out an error in the following text, the response would likely be “Oh, people can figure it out”:

          “She never exacted to have to deal with something even close to this madness.”

          My response would be that if you expect your readership to puzzle out what you are attempting to express, you are going to lose their [already-minimal] interest.

          Because obviously Europe is extremely soft and want Negros and Muslims there to hurt their own people intentionally just like our Gov wants the hordes flooding here to do some harm to us. Putin isn’t the one fabricating violence against his own people. I’m guessing this is a message being sent to any idiots that try some shit like this again as to what will happen.

          So they are better off raising hell in Europe or America where the governments will pamper and defend their acts of violence against their own citizens. After all, you don’t see a tidal wave of illegals trying to break into Russia…. And Putin isn’t trying to harm his own people, at least not in a way similar to our government.

        The officer who cut off Rachabalizoda’s ear had military patches including a far-right Totenkopf (dead person’s head) previously worn by Nazi SS units.

        The knife he used has been auctioned off online as the “ear-cutter”, according to Evgeny Rasskazov, a member of the far-right paramilitary battalion Rusich, who facilitated the sale.

        “The auction is closed, the lot was sold by the [state] employee privately,” he wrote. “Congratulations to the lucky owner of the ear-cutter.

        So according to the article i just read on the guardian, they are already claiming the act was committed by “White supremacist.” Why even post articles from these shitty liberal platforms like The Guardian that’s going to use this whole situation to make people on the right look worse than themselves? The moment they mentioned “far right/Nazism” I was beginning to wonder why anyone would post an article from that website because it’s their attempt to try to make it seem like the Far Right is that ruthless and savagery.

          TS,
          I think it is an attempt to alert those who fuck around with Russia to experience FAFO. It was axiomatic in the 60’s and beyond that Soviet (Russian) diplomats were not to be put upon by terrorists, Canadians, or other Anarchists. The results would be entire bloodlines removed from the planet. The Soviet Organs were then thorough, effective, brutal, and well understood. Maybe this is just a wake up call for those who forgot the lessons of the past.

            @Elysianfield

            Yeah, but that website is pretty far left sometimes about everything. They had to just mention Nazism so they can compare the Russians that did all of this to those men similar to Nazis, but I don’t recall nazi’s torturing anyone like this, if they did I never read about them doing it. Plus they also tossed “far right” in there. I am kind of curious as to who those men were really working for.

            If they were working for the U.S. Putin could have just sent the people in DC the severed ears, or even their dicks. But who knows if that would just make the U.S. retaliate even harder. I mean we’ll know for sure if the terrorist won’t attempt to try anything else in Russia or if they’ll go for something bigger next time and then kill themselves before they get caught.

Cutting a man’s ears off and forcing him to eat it is tough enough…What the hell do they want him to do, cut off their heads and play kick ball with it? What they did to those guys is brutal, still not as brutal as Islamist who behead people or what MS-13 have done. But brutal none the less. I mean he could have cut off their heads and severed their dicks, then shoved the cocks in their mouths like what happened to this one gay African dude in Africa. Now that would be sending a message.

    Greetings JHK

    We had a minor The long emergency event in our western New York state city. They found a body in the city’s major water reservoir. We had a boil water alert, and then it turns out the body was in there for 3 weeks. Possible suicide attempt, and the cameras that monitor the site recorded his entry but no alarms, no one was watching the cameras. Closed the city schools, even our hospital which is not on the city water, had to use bottled water because of the fears of patients and staff.
    But it’s all good, please carry on.

      Anyway, this water guy goes to some national water department meeting and finds out that New York has their water reservoir fenced off and guarded.

    Powerball is at $800 Million and draws TONIGHT, March 25 at 7:59 p.m., with sales closing at 7:00 p.m. Mega Millions is at $1.1 BILLION for tomorrow

    We talk about how the money in this country is worthless, but somehow they are able to still have lotteries where they can give out Millions or even billions if you are fortunate enough to win one of them.
    I’m pretty sure someone is going to win either one, usually someone does. But in their mind they won’t be thinking “all this money I just won is worthless… I can’t do anything with it!” Wrong because they can do LOTS with it despite it’s considered to be “worthless.”

Hell that’s what I would do if I won such large sums of money. lol sure as hell wouldn’t stay in a country that’s trying to seize all of Trumps assets and could just as well do it to me for any reason.

      You left out Jerusalem and Damascus.

      Blindness has continued to the present day, for we see many great prophets and seers, having unusual giftings, who cannot understand Isaiah’s vision. They think that Jerusalem will never be destroyed. They think that the earthly city will be Christ’s capital in the Kingdom. They think that the children of the flesh are God’s chosen people. They think that those who oppose Zionism and the Jewish occupation of Ariel are God’s enemies.

      The problem did not begin in our time, or even in the past few centuries. The blindness came in Isaiah’s day, specifically upon the prophets and seers, and this legacy has been passed down to their spiritual sons and daughters to the present.

      It appears, though, that the eyes and ears of the prophets and seers will not be opened until Jerusalem has been destroyed and Hagar and her fleshly children have been cast out. This is probably the event that will astonish churchianity and force them to seek the truth with their whole heart.

        A comment. The interstate highway system was built in the 1950s-80s, most of it anyway. The construction technology becomes dated in about 30 years, as the concrete and steel parts of bridges deteriorates. 695 was completed around 1960 along with the bridge. So what was its condition today? Are we seeing the beginning of a collapse of parts of the Interstate system, and even the local and state highways?

        Will the infrastructure effort stop the degradation in time? Should we be putting trillions of dollars into a highway reconstruction or into high speed and local railroads? I wonder if that will even come up? Maybe this bridge collapse will bring it up?

        I am glad this bridge is not on my commute what a mess.

        • Socrates-Detroit March 26, 2024 at 2:37 pm #

          Baltimore may quite possibly be the most dysfunctional city in America. The way Bill Bonner (who is from the area) describes it (and Bonner is brilliant–he is a peer of JHK as far as commenting on the scene), it makes Detroit look like a Swiss watch. Baltimore City must be an awful place for an American to have to live in.

          All I know is that I saw a video of a container ship hitting the support head on, and the bridge collapsing–a bridge I drove numerous times in the 80s and 90s.

          Beyond that, who knows what happened? Who know if the authorities will ever get to the real truth? Who knows if they will tell us? Who knows if the press will truthfully relay what they know?

          My bet NO. NO WAY all of the above happens. Likely NO to every question I posed. That’s how much I trust the US government and media (and in fairness, that’s true of most Western government and media).

          Others have said, and I have repeated, that as an “advanced” society, the US is a fragile society.

          A bad car accident can stop a freeway and lead to tens of thousands of lost man-hours. There is a cost to that.

          This bridge collapse is very disruptive to the lives of the people of the great Baltimore area. Possibly to truckers. To businesses. There is a huge financial/economic cost to this bridge.

          We can’t snap our fingers and have it back “up and running” in a week.

          It will take time. It will take money. Where will that money come from.

          Still, as the resident (or one of the few) contrarian here, I must note that it’s interesting how this bridge will get a lot of coverage, with what, maybe 10-20 people killed, while the Israeli disproportionate massacre in Gaza is mostly ignored by Americans, or even supported.

          Of course, the bridge is in the US. And money is involved. Still…

          Gaza, with 31,000 dead, who know how many thousands more under the rubble, and how many thousands more have a date with death due to malnutrition or illness that is not going to be put off, even if the Israeli bombs stopped and the floodgates of aid opened.

          And as noted in JHK’s article, 100-plus Russian were killed in a terrorist act last weekend, and the US first reaction was to say “it wasn’t Ukraine”. Coming from the same government which warned (the bitch Nuland) “we have some surprises for Russia”. The same government that said (both President Biden AND Nuland) that Nordstream would not operate.

          You people let the US government run amuck overseas. Actions have consequences. This isn’t 1965, when the war was confined to Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, and when America was populated by AMERICANS–and I include the MANAGEABLE number of foreign-born Americans of that era who spoke accented or even poor English, because they were not likely to cause trouble.

          I have hard time thinking this was just a simple accident, and the stars aligned and this container ship just scored a direct hit on the bridge. It may have.

          I don’t know what to believe, but in 2019, I wouldn’t have been as skeptical.

        The Pilot would have been in command of the ship until it cleared the bridge. See: ‘h t t p : / / w w w .charts.noaa.gov/OnLineViewer/12281.shtml

        That purple box outside the bridge is the Pilot boarding area. I think they likely use the same place to disembark as well.

        This may truly be a black swan, as I said earlier, all the data that’s needed to reconstruct this is available. I’m sure there’s thousands of models being built.

        It may also be a complete coincidence that the Captain was Ukrainian, but my mind drifts to those who can influence these types of individuals, and what pressure they bring to bear. At face value, yeah doesn’t seem likely. But, who’s to say what the motive is? This ‘accident’ fits quite well with a few American memes in circulation.

    The bridge accident was a result of the ship losing power, it was called in before the hit. Someone mentioned the Titanic, yeah, it always seems that the work up to catastrophes are ordained. Watching the videos showed a couple of things to me,

    When the ship veered after losing power, it went directly at the bridge support, was that current that spun it around and why was the current aimed right at the support. How fast was that ship moving when it hit? Are container ships too big trying to “Big Box” the seaways?

    I feel, like the Twin Towers, that that bridge was under designed. The second span fell in because the weight of the first span was gone, a result of a cutesy design like the floor supports of the WTT. The supports looked puny when the ship plowed into the one affected and just sheared it off. Where was the concrete bulwark that should have been there? The bridge should be the one that damaged the ship, not vice versa.

      The Twin Towers were not underdesigned. They took the hits from the planes with a mere shudder and remained standing.

      It took massive explosions to remove the overdesigned support columns to bring them down, each about an hour later.

      That bridge folded like a line of dominoes.

      I doubt it was Russian sabotage. They build their bridges to withstand multiple blows.
      How would they know this sucker would go down in less than a minute?

      Who built that thing?

      • Jarek March 26, 2024 at 10:12 pm #

        The Russians built it in order to do this later.

        The Ukies took down part of the Crimean bridge, even though “Russian”.

        • Paula D March 27, 2024 at 12:23 pm #

          The Crimean bridge didn’t collapse like a house of cards.

          Only the targeted section was damaged, and it didn’t fall into the water.

    Re: RFK, Jr. on CBDC. His statement in it’s simplicity is brilliant, and self-evident.

    If CBDC(s) are adopted in the US and accepted by US citizens (which will be enticed via a shock and awe event like 9/11 on steroids), the freedom of speech, enshrined in 1A, is immediately extinguished.

    Think that one through, It’s not hard to figure out.

    Wavy Gravy, now there’s a living Anarchist Zaz hasn’t quoted yet.

    Dude grew up right around here, father was an architect.

    Wavy espoused a laid back, live and let live, cool kind of Anarchism. IOW, he wasn’t blowing stuff up and murdering people. In fact, Wavy Gravy may have not even considered himself an Anarchist, altho his ‘Hog Farm’ was arguably founded on Anarhistic principles.

    The ‘Hog Farm’ didn’t last too long, altho it lives on in popular imagination.

    I know! It was the Jews who did it. After all, anything bad occurs, it has to be their fault. See, the Ukrainian ship captain’s dog knew a neighbor’s dog whose owner once walked by a synagogue. That right there shows a plot was being hatched. And Bibi knew about it! And the neighbor’s 50th generation back great grandfather made the nails that were used to hang Jesus on the cross.

      My brother is a retired Coast Guard engineer, also worked on container ships and two of Exxon’s oil tankers (not the one that ran aground)

      He was saying a ship that size should have been tied to 4 tugboats when it made entrance to the harbor. Even the little 4500 ton DDG I was on never entered a harbor or port without tugboat assistance.

      • BackRowHeckler March 26, 2024 at 1:01 pm #

        And that ship is massive. 100,000 tons, 1000 ft from stem to stern, 175 ft wide.

      • cowbell81 March 26, 2024 at 1:05 pm #

        Another quite likely scenario: That ship and everyone running it was a DEI hire. This is what you get when you prioritize color/gender/sexual orientation over actual knowledge and experience.

        • BackRowHeckler March 26, 2024 at 1:14 pm #

          The freighter that broke apart in a hurricane off the coast of Florida about 6-7 years ago had a lady Captain, lady Navigator, and lady engineer. The CO of the Merchant Marine Academy on Long Island was a man hating lesbian whose main mission is to stamp out “toxic masculinity” from the campus & merchant ships. Another goal is to install more POCs into Officer ranks.

            Was that the car carrier, the MV Golden Ray?

            I remember the MV Golden Ray, a car carrier with about 4,000 cars sank off of coast of Georgia.

            Specifics would help, like the name of the ship, where it broke.

          • BackRowHeckler March 27, 2024 at 10:08 am #

            SD, the auto carrier that sank off the coast of the Azores was the Felicity Ace; also, there were 4000 new automobiles lost, not 3000.

            Like I mentioned it was determined an EV spontaneously ignited, which caught the whole ship on fire.

            Yeah I just posted that off the top of my head from memory, should have looked into the details first.

            Thanks! I did see something about that Felicity Ace. One or two of the EVs (electric cars) self-ignited fire and it sank in the middle of the Atlantic

  68. BackRowHeckler March 26, 2024 at 1:21 pm #

    Another thing that’s happening now is massive ships carrying automobiles from Europe to the USA are catching on fire and sinking. Two so far, one with over 3000 new & luxury automobiles off the coast of the Azores.

    EV batteries are igniting in the hold, burning hot (5000°F), and cooking the whole ship. Benr & JAZ will tell you there’s nothing worse than a shipboard fire.

    What are you learning and what messages are you receiving this Holy Week? I’m kinda feeling overwhelmed and nauseas by this worm moon right now. Sometimes I simply have no understanding of the messages i receive. A raccoon may assist me in finding my way out of this debacle. So I looked into the symbolism of a raccoon to understand what this means. Raccoons are actually symbols of resourcefulness and determination because they are so adaptable and can find food in the most difficult of circumstances. They are also symbols for new beginnings and transformations. Because they wear “masks” they have an innate ability to navigate change! Raccoons are also symbols of trickery and mischief so be really careful. But this is not always a negative thing or may often not even be negative. They use trickery to outsmart predators and escape bad sitches. So you may wish to consider adopting the Raccoon as your totem animal even?!

      @ SSL:

      My belief is that reality is the best way to get by in this world, so because I like you, I want you to think realistically.

      The phases of the moon have no influence in your life. It’s 240,000 miles away, and any influence it could really have is exceedingly minuscule. Many, many studies have disproven lunar phases have an effect on people. There’s a reason such beliefs are called lunacy. Sorry, SSL.

      I know you like magical thinking, but I do know that scientific reasoning is ultimately much more fascinating,

      Regardless, I hope you successfully navigate through this world.

      • SoftStarLight March 26, 2024 at 3:51 pm #

        You’re so thoughtful, Bill. I so appreciate your good will and concern. I do believe that the Moon and the planets effect us very much. The Moon’s orbit effects the Earth in many different ways and so it is very difficult to believe that it has no effect on the beings living on the Earth. Additionally it is scientific understanding that the planets can effect the Earth’s weather and climate phases. So there is scientific data out there. And there is also so much science doesn’t even know yet. So I would disagree with you in a very friendly way.

          We are going to be hearing much, much more about a thing called “circadian rhythm” and its effect on mental health, and even {drum roll} WEIGHT. Weight, as in obesity and weight loss.

          That is, if we ever go to real scientific studies on human health, instead of finding ways to make bat diseases kill more people.

    Anybody who knows me, knows I like to gamble. But I don’t gamble too much on the lottery. Can’t say never, but not very much. I only bet when the payoffs are pretty high – like when they are higher than the odds of winning. In other words, when the mathematical expectation is equal or greater than 1. Even then I don’t gamble much because the taxes lower the expectation to less than one, which means they are poor gambles.

    I don’t like obfuscations. It irritates me when someone wins a large amount, the lottery says this winner is a millionaire or a billionaire. It’s basically dishonest. If you win a million dollar jackpot, say on a scratch ticket, you net out $350-$450,000. While that’s a good score, it doesn’t make you a millionaire. I always think in terms of the net.

    The odds of winning the big games are in the order of around 200 million to one or more. People don’t understand what those odds really mean. It means it’s almost impossible to win. But people hear about someone winning millions. They believe they can as well, not thinking about the hundreds of millions of tickets it took to get one or 2 big winners.

    If you buy a hundred tickets, you’ve only reduced the odds to 1 or 2 million to 1, again a ridiculously small chance. I remember what one person once told me: “If God wants you to win, you only need to buy one ticket.”

      Bill, I might have told you this lottery story. My father in law was a city official in a city where, over a period of about a decade, every employee from the Mayor to the City Hall janitor was arrested for some sort of malfeasance or another. Everybody except him. He had this neighbor who lived in big brick Italian style mafia mansion with Iron gates and concrete lions guarding access to the driveway. Real Mustache Pete stuff. One day he got arrested by the Feds, which is when I found out in the local paper he was linked to the Genovese family in NY & the Patriarchas in Providence. He ended up getting an 8 year sentence, but just before reporting to Lewisburg he won the State Lottery, $8 million. Well I figured the fix was in, that the game could be, and was, manipulated. Because remember around the same time Sonny the Bull Gravano won the NY State lottery for a few million, and Whitey Bulger won in Mass. But the fix wasn’t in, and the games really could not be manipulated or handicapped. My FIL exclaimed to me these gangsters would spend tens of thousands of dollars on each draw, so even when they did score a big jackpot they were still on the losing end.

      • Paula D March 26, 2024 at 7:04 pm #

        That is an amazing story, BRH.

        Maybe that’s why they sold the whole thing to actual Italians. They figured they’d be less crooked than US Italians?

    “The message that I gave you and you put out—the warning for the world (Message from 3 March 2024)—tell people that it is a serious message and not to ignore it. It is coming. It is coming. There is no way out—I have to purify the world. The world is in a terrible state and has never been as bad in history as it is now.”

    “Encourage people to repent and change. You have no idea how beautiful it is going to be to enter the New Era of Peace. You are now going through these difficult times, but the prophecy I have told you must be fulfilled. Whatever comes your way, bear it with patience and love. Don’t be afraid—I Am always with you to protect you and guide you through all that is coming, and that is upon you.”

    I asked, “Lord Jesus, how is this going to affect our world? Will it affect the buildings? Will they all be ruined and completely destroyed?”

    Our Lord answered, “Not so much the buildings; some will be ruined, but mostly it will affect the person because there will be a great transformation that has never happened before. Those who are spiritually prepared will be affected less, but those who are not, who are far away from Me, will suffer great consequences. Fear and confusion will overcome them; they don’t like to change; they would rather live like they used to, rolling in the mud! So you have to pray very hard, My children, for these people to let go of their worldliness. Pray for their salvation.”

      Lately when i’ve been meditating I get into a prayer space and find that to be a wonderful compliment to just meditating. One may wish to consider each day an opportunity to be purified with the fires of life which can be very dramatic, let alone a catastrophic event. I would like to see the return of the Christ but then realize that it will certainly come at a price and in that respect is certainly one of those thing to “be careful what you wish for”.

      • anmariwakaranai March 26, 2024 at 6:07 pm #

        Good to pray Star. Catholic saints and prophets talk about 1000 years of peace before the coming of Christ. This purification now upon us will usher that in. But it will be brutal, the cleansing of earth.

I have moved outside of more orthodox Christian beliefs over time. I haven’t really done so (at least i think) because I want to be transgressive or because I intentionally want to turn things upside down so to speak. It just seems to be a learning process. But at my core I still revere Christ and at this point I don’t think that will change. I know you do too.

    The bridge collapse looks like another domino in the chain of things going down.
    The airlines have become too inept to keep planes flying in one piece.
    The various supply lines have multiple issues related to ineptitude and gross mismanagement and that affects everything.

    Instead of some sudden planned event, it looks like we will just slowly come undone like a poorly knitted sweater.
    Resistance is futile.

    Perhaps the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore was NOT an accident, it just appeared that way. Perhaps it is a warning.

    I don’t know. But anything is possible.

    From a Russian perspective, it’s not just the Moscow Crocus Massacre. The Ukrainians are attacking Russian cities, like Belgorod with drones and Western-supplied long-range missiles.

    The Ukrainians are attacking civilian targets in a desperate attempt to put off the inevitable, and the US is supporting it.

    The loss of life from the destruction of the bridge was relatively minor. However, the economic impact is significant. It is not far from Washington, and the visual impact in the mainstream media is significant.

    As such, it is a good opportunity for Americans to stop and reflect on the role of the US government and military outside the US, and the death and destruction caused by US foreign policy.

    A foreign policy that brings NO BENEFIT to the vast majority of the American people, but which enriches and empowers a select few.

    This policy is pushed by “the blob”. It makes the blob stronger, and everyone else weaker.

    Had the bridge collapsed between 6am and 10pm (0600 and 2200), the loss of life would have been far greater.

    Was the collision an accident? Or deliberate and made to look that way? I don’t know. I would not rule anything out. I do not trust the US (or Western for that matter) government and/or media to get to the bottom of this and tell us the truth.

    Just one more piece of bad news. But one that should make us stop and think for a moment that our government’s meddling and actions overseas are causing a lot of problems for others, and those others might react in ways we will not like.

      It does seem like a good lesson to the US.

      Little loss of life, but massive economic damage.

      That’s hitting them where they actually care.

      But I still think that the Russians wouldn’t know how flimsily that bridge was built.

      One thing I do know, is that we won’t get the truth from our overlords.

      • Socrates-Detroit March 27, 2024 at 11:01 am #

        @Paula D

        Great summary!

        Harbor closed! For auto companies which use Baltimore as a Port of Entry, this is HUGE potential hit. You just can divert all those Mercedes, Subarus, VWs, etc to another port of entry, because the other ports have no where to HOLD thousands of cars for X hours or days until they are shipped by rail or truck to dealers.

        Potential supply chain issues–just in time parts must be diverted.

        The bridge itself–the good news is most traffic from the South to the North can be re-routed to the Beltway. But for local people and business, it’s a huge hit.

        Now, I raised the possibility that is was NOT an accident. Given the US-instigated war in Ukraine, it could be a Russian response made to look like an accident.

        BUT, what if some of the crew are Ukrainian, and THEY are angry the US is not helping Ukraine more? Individual actors.

        What if some of the crew are Palestinian sympathizers–Malaysians or Indonesians or some other Islamic ethnicity?

        By the same token, they could be Israeli sympathizers angry that the US did not dutifully veto this UN cease-fire resolution (as it had been doing up to now). That possibility seems remote to me, because I associate Zionism with Jews and some Europeans and Americans, and my sense is that these groups are under-represented in cargo ships of this type.

        My point is, ANY aggrieved group could have “lone wolves” in cargo ships, living in the US as naturalized citizens, or on legal work visas, or illegally, in the vicinity of sensitive infrastructure.

        When the US meddles in foreign affairs, the “oh shit” is always much bigger, and more dangerous, than the “attaboy”.

        Don’t take my word: go and ask Pakistanis and Indians, and they BOTH blame the US for supporting the other. Ditto Greeks and Turks.

        There are even ISRAELIS who say the US supports the Palestinians–even some of you CFNers have said that.

        Of course, the Palestinians have legitimate grievances, with no chance for justice. What does one do in that situation?

        Some angry crew member does something deliberate that he is confident can look like an accident, and….”boom, take that America!” And this has relatively low loss of life, but huge economic (and visual) impact!

        Of course, it could be an accident also. But that’s the narrative the PTB will want us to believe–an accident.

        Tying this to a “lone wolf” is the LAST thing they would want.

        This is among the better articles I’ve found. I references a source saying the ship’s Captain is Ukrainian (and that snippet prompted me to write this, since I felt it’s plausible–and UNDERSTANDABLE, and unfortunately, WARRANTED, that Russia might have something to do with this).

          I tried to look up the nationalities of the crew of the ship (all Indian), and found that the six workers missing are all immigrants from Latin America.

          I guess they were doing the jobs that Americans won’t do.

    Patrick Henry wrote the Star Spangled Banner. Just as a guess I imagine this bridge down thing is another message from the Satanic blood sucking parasites that lord over the United States that they are destroying your nation in front of your face piece by piece and laughing because no one will react or do anything.

      It’s the same for the Europeans as well….People are too afraid to do anything.

        Its too bad. Clearly there are people who are not too afraid to do something.

          LOL right, I guess typing on forums count as people doing something or waiting for a zionist like Trump to do something. I’ll believe it when the illegals stop coming and get deported in both America and Europe.

          I’ll also believe it when someone with balls tell everyone in DC to stop trying to piss off Putin and remind them exactly what would happen if a third world war does start since everyone is too stupid and dumb to realize the consequences of such a war.

          Until then, the only thing I see happening is more “accidents” more and more attacks similar to the ones in Russia, and more people just talking about it on the internet vs actually doing something. There’s a big difference between doing something vs talking about doing something. The way you worded your sentence at the end is why I said what I said.

          “They are destroying your nation in front of your face piece by piece and laughing because no one will react or do anything.”
