In It to Spin It

“… [W]e’re done accommodating you lunatics. it’s time for actual adults to return to the room and supplant the squalling squalor you have inflicted upon us, our economies, our cultures, and our institutions.” — El Gato Malo on Substack

    Imagine: President “Joe Biden,” on the deck behind his Rehoboth Beach house Sunday evening before a most consequential week. He just declared to the nation that only an “act of God” will prevent him from running for re-election. Dr. Jill has gone inside for another martini, extra-dry, no vermouth, no ice, no olive. . . no glass. Chief advisor, Hunter Biden, just drove into Wilmington “to pick something up,” he said. Chocolate chip ice cream melts in the bowl on “JB’s” lap as he endures another Parkinsonian frozen rapture. His gaze is fixed on the gray-green Atlantic, a blank horizon, much like his current career prospects.

       As happens often these days, he slips off to sleep. In his dream, a red phone is ringing.
“Who’s this. . .?” he says.
“Me, God. Thought it was time you and me had a little chat. You can’t be serious ’bout this re-election thang.”
“I’m defending our democracy. Gotta stay in. Defeat Hitler.”
“Democracy my ass! You channelin’ Hitler yourself a little too much lately. How it is you laid ninety-seven indictments on my dawg DJT? You done George Floyded da man!”
“But. . . but. . . the insurrection—”
“Insurrection my ass! Why you keep sayin’ dat?”
“If you repeat stuff enough, people believe it.”
“Who told you that?”
“Andrew Weissmann.”
“Oh, really? I kicked his ass outa my house more’n four thousand years ago. He ain’t nothin’ but trouble. Who told you to listen to him?”
“Lisa Monaco and Mary McCord.”
“Oh? Them two! Just so you know, I canceled they retirement plan up here with me. They goin’ to the other place wid Weissmann. Now, I got news for you, Joey: Ima have to take yo’ ass out dis election.”
“But why? I’ve accomplished so much. Did you see me at Gettysburg, beating those insurrectionists?”
“I see everything. Didn’t see you around dat day.”
“What about when I stormed the beaches at Normandy?”
“Naw. You was in a playpen, going goo-goo-goo. Look, Joey, here’s the deal: remember you said ‘God bless America’ in all them speeches you made?”
“We all say that. Anyway. . . .”
“Maybe y’all go through the motions, but I got responsibilities, know what I’m sayin’? I been tryin’ and tryin’ to bless dis land but yo’ bunch making’ it mighty difficult for me. So, news flash: yo’ ass is out de race. Official act from yours truly. Sorry.”
“But. . .but. . . that’s. . . that’s racist!” the President stutters as his dream dissolves in a vapor.

       Dr. Jill is shaking his shoulder, rather harshly.
“I heard that! Don’t even dare think of dropping out,” she says. “Or you’ll never get another bowl of ice cream ever again! Do you read me?”
“Yeah, Okay! Okay!” Anyway. . . .”

      And so it goes in the twilight hours of our forty-sixth president. At least Rob Reiner hasn’t asked him to step aside. At this point, it looks like nobody’s in a position to save our democracy until and unless they do something to save the floundering Democratic Party. All hands are on deck in our nation’s capital. Congress is even coming back from vacation today. So much desperate chatter is rising out of the Potomac Swamp that it’s like a deadly miasma infecting everyone! What on earth to do now?

     There are Plans A, B, C, D, E . . . . Only one problem: they all look like variations on a Chinese fire drill. Let the demented bastard run and hope for the best? Please! You thought the debate was bad? And the Stephanopoulos colloquy was unnerving? Imagine the gaffes and flubs to come in the months ahead. For instance, the convention in Chicago. . . “Joe B” freezes up for five long minutes at the podium mid-acceptance speech like a defective android in a sci-fi movie. . . “Joe B” takes a header off the stage at a Midwest state fair. . . “Joe B” challenges a quadriplegic veteran in a wheelchair to a push-up contest. . . .

      Then there is. . . the Kamala question. Could she, uh, step into the breach, if it. . . you know . . . had to be? She comes with a dowry of over $250-million in campaign contributions, which no other candidate has dibs on. Quite a temptation. But the cackling. . . ? The vapid word-salad. . .? The record of accomplishment. . . ?

     Would Hillary even allow that? I said uh-hey (hey), you (you), get offa my cloud! Hillary is lurking so quietly in the background she’s like one of those self-camouflaging bottom-feeder fish pretending to be a rock, with a coy little tendril dangling in front of her garage-size mouth to lure the little fishies in . . . before . . . chomp chomp! But, has she plumb worn out her welcome in American politics? Is she a fazed cookie?  You can’t help but see a big, bold letter “L” on her forehead lately. She might, arguably, be even more loathed by more voters than Mr. Trump at this point.

     Then there’s the idea put out just over the weekend to stage an insta-bliz primary before the August Dem Convention. With the condition of “positive-only” campaigns. Does that mean no Hitler-talk? Can’t wait to see how that works out.

     Finally, there’s the novelty solution to this fine mess: “Joe Biden” stays in the race, bumps Kamala, installs Barack Obama in the veep candidate slot, they romp, then somewhere around January 21, 2025, “JB” bows out. . . and cazart! It’s back to the Good ol’ days with President Obama again! What a play!  Genius! You see, the 22nd Amendment only says: No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice. Doesn’t say anything about getting elected veep and then being elevated to president by happenstance. If that doesn’t save our democracy, I don’t know what will.

      We’re in for fast-moving developments this week. I’ll update here as necessary.


 Update July 9: It appears that ultra-super-lib Rob Reiner has turned on “Joe Biden” after all.

          The ads at you tube can be comical.

          The home invader is White, the guy from the alarm company is Black.
          Plus the race mixing and suave riche Blacks enjoying life.

          Or the blacks out hiking in the wilderness.

            Oh, come on malt, you haven’t run across a white guy and his black wife, and all their kids, hiking in the Northern Rockies? Where have you been?

          • Cankerpuss July 8, 2024 at 3:52 pm #

            It’s not just blacks and whites mixing in these ads. They mix latinos and asians. Blacks and poynesians.

            I’ve seen a few mixed race couples in my life and I really don’t care who one decides to mix it up with. But if one watched TV one could deduce that race mixing and black people are the vast majority.

            There is a facebook commercial where a messy haired persian or indian fellow is putting together a baby pen. His apparent wife is a pretty regular looking curly haired white lady. There is no way those two would get together in this world.

          There’s a new cable tv series set among the English nobility in Napoleonic times.

          Surprise, a good third of these lords and dukes are played by people of color. How’s that for historical honesty?!

            hmuller: historical rehabilitation is the essence of modern media which has replaced the old court historian. Tell lies long enough and you’ll piss off old people who know better BUT you’ll capture the newer generations with still developing brains and a ephemeral media. It’s all about the long game.

            It happens all the time here in the UK. We have had Anne Boleyn played by a black woman, Charles Dickens played by a British Indian, almost all costume dramas set anywhere from the Viking times to the second world war populated by black African and Caribbean actors.

            My great grandfather was African American and came to England at the turn of the 20th century. He met and married my white English great grandmother and settled in Manchester. It was unheard of to see any person of colour here back then that people would make their way to the street he lived on just to look at the black man.

          • Jarek July 10, 2024 at 3:19 pm #

            The movie Churchill has Churchill meeting a Black man and his White girlfriend on the underground. The Blacks helps Churchill with his speech while the filthy White racists look on.

            Maybe this is based on your Grandfather.

        • tuco22 July 8, 2024 at 11:27 am #

          Yes, most of the commercials are black, now, or mixed race. Always showing upper class blacks living in multimillion-dollar homes. An alternate reality that doesn’t exist. But most Americans don’t want reality. They want Fantasy Island land and that’s where the bulk of them live.

          • NickelthroweR July 8, 2024 at 1:41 pm #

            In our new world of subjective reality, showing blacks living upper-middle-class lives is the equivalent of actually living this life. If I can self-identify as a Leopard and that is “real” then showing black people living fantastic lives is “real” as well. No need to worry about CRT or Reparations anymore.

          • Cankerpuss July 8, 2024 at 3:53 pm #

    Still, I was hoping for some news tidbits today.

    • Alfred July 8, 2024 at 9:48 am #

      The big news today seems to be that France and England have moved FARTHER LEFT.

      How did that happen? What does this mean with respect to Ukraine?


      • Socrates-Detroit July 8, 2024 at 10:16 am #


        If you look at the numbers and how these votes came about, in Britain, the big news is the low turnout means Labor, what got ONLY 34% of the votes, will have huge majority in Parliament.

        The convoluted (on purpose!) British system of actually electing MPs is what has given Labor this majority.

        What this means is that the GAP between the elected rulers in Britain and the ruled public is bigger than ever.

        Reform UK (Nigel Farage, who led the Brexit and seems to be a “Britain first” politician) got 14% of the vote. And 1% of the seats….

        The smaller parties (anyone but Conservative or Labor) got 43% of the vote!

        Only 60% voted, so Labor really “represents” only 21% of Britons… but they will have more than 400 of 650 seats. Democracy in action, lol!

        In France, the voters in the first round gave the non-establishment right more votes–so in the second round, all the establishment parties, including the Communists, united around ONE candidate in districts where the Le Pen’s National Rally looked poised to come in first. Communists/Socialists endorsed President Macron’s party “centrist/conservative” party, or vice versa, to keep Le Pen’s party OUT>

        In France, Ukraine is a big issue. The establishment, globalist President, Macron, is a hawk who has discussed sending French troops to Ukraine. I think he has sent “trainers”.

        This is very unpopular with the French public. There is a lot of dissatisfaction in France.

        Will the Olympic event INSIDE the stadiums will be accompanied by Olympic size demonstrations and episodes in the streets? Quite a few French like to demonstrate.

        Both elections show the public dislikes the politicians, and at this point people are voting AGAINST the status quo. Which is kind of like here.

        In the Ukraine, unfortunately, I would not be surprised if the US provokes Russia, in the hope that the Russian reaction/escalation will help Biden and the Democrats keep the White House, and also help tether Trump to this failed policy of supporting the war, should he win, and also keep the European governments “in line” in project Ukraine.

        How much more money is the US going waste in Ukraine? I’ve lost track of how many billion–$125 at least, probably more.

        • Ron Anselmo July 8, 2024 at 11:29 am #

          “I think he has sent “trainers”.” ~ Socrates-Detroit

          Putin previously torched French “trainers” in an apartment building. Supposedly because they were too stupid and gave away their position by ordering out French food for delivery.

          Breaking AP: Putin has torched 5 Ukie cities this morning, with 40 incoming missiles.

          It may be time to short popcorn and get long marshmallows. God says, “They finna’ burn it down”.

          • Paula D July 8, 2024 at 11:41 am #

            I think that pro-Russian partisans in eastern Ukraine are telling the DPR and Russia where NATO is stashing their mercs.

            Same as in Odessa, where the burning of the anti-coup protesters is still remembered. They are helping the Russians, even though the SBU is kicking down doors looking for anti-Nazi partisans.

            “In Ukraine, Killings of Surrending Russians Divide American-Led Ukraine Unit” July 6, 2024, NY Times

            It’s mostly behind a paywall. My understanding is that it reports on surrendering Russians being killed anyway. Maybe one of you can verify it.

            That is the “story”.

            The message behind the story is to show Ukraine is not all good, and perhaps to prepared the sheeple who think they are informed because they read the NY Times for the end of “Project Ukraine” and for the “defeat” of the Ukranian Government.

            We also have the facts that Zelensky made opposition parties illegal, cancelled elections, and his term has expired. These facts can be taken out of the closet when the time is right.

            Here’s the NYT article from the WayBack Machine, which removed the paywall:


          • Paula D July 8, 2024 at 4:13 pm #

            This guy says that anti-Kiev regime Ukies who are refugees in Romania are sabotaging NATO weapons before they can get sent to Ukraine.

            Maybe, maybe not. But, interesting.


          • Blackbird July 8, 2024 at 5:53 pm #

            Another reason to release the information about the killing of surrendering Russians could be to get the pro-Ukraine sheeple over here to quietly (at first…) say, “Serves ’em right!” Lead them one small step at a time down rosy path to approving of atrocities.

            Anybody remember how the Democrats used to be the “party of peace”? Now they’re the most badass of warmongers.

      • Paula D July 8, 2024 at 11:38 am #

        Michael Hudson wrote about that recently (before France’s second round).
        ”Political differences between Europe’s centrist parties are marginal, all supporting neoliberal cutbacks in social spending in favor of rearmament, fiscal stringency and the deindustrialization that support of U.S.-NATO policy entails. The word “centrist” means not advocating any change in the economy’s neoliberalism. Hyphenated-centrist parties are committed to maintaining the pro-U.S. post-2022 status quo.

        That means letting U.S. leaders control European politics via NATO and the European Commission, Europe’s counterpart to America’s Deep State. This passivity is putting its economies onto a war footing, with inflation, trade dependence on the United States and European deficits resulting from U.S.-sponsored trade and financial sanctions against Russia and China. This new status quo has shifted European trade and investment away from the Eurasia to the United States.

        Voters in France, Germany and Italy are turning away from this blind alley. Every incumbent centrist party has recently lost – and their defeated leaders all had similar pro-U.S. neoliberal policies. As Steve Keen describes the centrist political game: “The Party in power runs Neoliberal policies; it loses the next election to rivals who, when they get in power, also run neoliberal policies. They then lose, and the cycle repeats.”


        • Socrates-Detroit July 8, 2024 at 12:08 pm #

          Well-said. The establishment parties are generally losing votes from “middle Europe”.

          The establishment answer is to use the media to paint the other parties as “extremists”. This is getting old, and not working as well as it used to.

          Here is a further point to consider:

          With the trade sanctions on Russia, Europe in general and Germany and in particular, lost their (relatively) inexpensive energy from Russia.

          Manufacturing, making stuff, requires energy inputs. When Germany/Europe is forced to buy LNG (LIQUIFIED natural gas) from the US that cost X TIMES as much as piped Russian gas did, or replace piped Russian oil with tanker shipped oil that costs more, the cost of Germany/Euro manufactured goods increases and they become less competitive.

          So, by shifting to a “war economy” (and many prominent European/NATO officials have said this is necessary–and it also happens to be what the US establishment wants), and substituting armaments for some of that goods production, manufacturing can remain viable.

          Unlike consumer goods that often must compete, armaments sales to governments or non-competitive, “essential”, and the government will pay whatever (and get the money from Euro taxpayers, borrowing, or creating money).

          • Yirgach July 8, 2024 at 3:26 pm #

            Manufacturing, making stuff, requires RELIABLE energy inputs

            You can’t run a blast furnace or aluminum smelter using wind and solar. Let alone any modern economy. NG is necessary to bridge the gap while the next gen nuclear plants are built.

            If your goal is anything less, then you are going back a few centuries in time.

            Good luck and have a nice trip!

    I thought 10 years was the time limit on any one person’s presidency. Ol’ Joe would have to at least live another two years into his term I suppose that could be arranged.

    Parkinsonism comes in many forms, but the sort associated with dementia, the most common being Parkinson’s with Lewy body, is probably the most unpleasant, and is accompanied by terrible hallucinations. My neighbor once called the cops and asked them to remove the naked head and torso of a woman dancing on his table. They had to call his daughter out of state to come and get him. They had to turn my cousin’s nightgowns inside out because she couldn’t tolerate the sensation of the seams against her skin, and it took her a God-awful length of time to die.

      As with most modern “dis-ease” there is a deficiency component.

      A few years ago you would be considered a quack for suggesting that Parkinson’s can be cured with vitamins.

      Look up “New Study Links Gut Vitamin B Deficiency to Parkinson’s Disease”.

      The Gut. Parasites can kill good bacteria in the gut. Modern food helps.

      Most “disease” and infection come from Parasites which is the same with our “leadership” and the government.

      Talk about how parasitical our system is and you may be dismissed. No one wants to see the obvious.

      • River July 8, 2024 at 11:47 am #

        Re: ‘deficiency component’ – I’ve just started reading ‘Super Gut’ by William Davis who states that our microbiomes have completely changed in recent decades and (on top of the damage from artificial foods, added emulsifiers, etc., gmo’s, herbacides/pesticides, you name it), we no longer even have some of the protective beneficial microbes in our GI tracts that we had even a few decades ago (although indigenous hunter gatherers still do) and he proposes that this is a key factor in the huge increases in disease (including Parkinsons) these days. – Very good info in this book!!

        • JoshuaThompson July 9, 2024 at 8:48 am #

          We have the option to not eat processed food. Much easier now that fast food is no longer cheap, and a bar snack plus beer is $20.

          We also can reduce consumption of animal food, thus reducing much inflammation and toxins.

          Beans, grains veggies, fruits. Maybe not as delicious but a lot healthier, and a rational tradeoff.

        • Anthea July 10, 2024 at 2:43 am #

          The book posits that some of our modern food allergies, such as gluten intolerance, are the result of this change in the gut biome. The gut biome of the past allowed us to digest gluten.

        Could that be why ivermectin — originally a parasiticide — is turning out to be effective against diseases ranging from Covid to cancer?


        • Anthea July 10, 2024 at 2:58 am #

          @ Heartlander:

          Dr. Hulda Clark maintained that cancer was caused by parasites, in her book, The Cure for All Cancers. I don’t know when this book was first published, but it’s been around for at least 20 years.

          Her cure was to take a course of antihelminthic herbs: clove, wormwood, and black walnut hull tincture.

          I heard about the book because a neighbor of mine cured his prostate cancer this way, and he heard about it from a co-worker who cured his cancer by this method after being basically sent home to die. Yet another neighbor cured her dog’s cancer with this method.

          It’s a useful book, as it also gives directions for getting rid of gallstones and kidney stones. I’ve used the “liver cleanse” for getting rid of gallstones twice, successfully, once for a mild case, and once for a pretty severe case of gall bladder trouble.

          I also used her kidney cleanse to cure a neighbor’s kidney stones. His doctor had told him he had a kidney stone, I guess based on a sonogram, and he was desperate to get rid of it naturally, as he’d been through a very painful surgery for kidney stones in the past.

          We went shopping at the local herb store and got a bunch of cherry juice at the grocery store, and I made up a supply of Dr. Clark’s tea. I advised the guy to drink a lot of cherry juice and water. He was highly motivated.

          When he went back to the doctor, the doctor told him he had no kidney stones. So, either the method worked or the guy was misdiagnosed.

          Anyway, it’s a handy book to have around, even if you don’t have cancer.

        • River July 10, 2024 at 7:39 am #

          In Dr. Russell Blaylock’s (my favorite doctor – he never caved to the covid protocol, including the masks) current newsletter he states that the antiparasitic drugs: “ivermectin and fenbendazole have been shown to kill cancer stem cells” and “both seem to be quite effective against the new so-called ‘turbo-cancers.’ ”

          @Anthea – I’ve seen that book around for years and will now pick up a copy. Thank you!

          @ Jarek:

          I think that taking birth control hormones has an adverse effect on women’s mental and emotional balance.

          I say this mainly because I’ve seen or heard about the very deleterious effects of taking hormones for other reasons. Mainly things like insomnia,weight gain, and temperamental problems.

          On a more personal note, many years ago an old friend of mine told me that I should stop taking birth control because it was making me crazy. In retrospect I think there was quite a bit of truth to that.

    Great opening quote:” it’s time for actual adults to return to the room and supplant the squalling squalor you have inflicted upon us, our economies, our cultures, and our institutions”.Just one question: When,exactly, did “adults” ever run things? Were we better off under “W’s” (OK, Cheney’s) mob, staging 911s and invading irrelevant countries? Bill C, bombing Ethiopian pharmaceutical plants (over a blow job)? I assume we’ve come to accommodate the reality that even political ubermensch LBJ was a mob-connected psychopath. Maybe ceasing to pretend that the Uniparty offers a solution, rather than a 4-yr cycle of trading crime gangs & hoping that THIS TIME it will change ANYTHING. Trump was going to “drain the swamp”. Yeah. By hiring every slimy swamp critter (Bolton, Pompeo, Haley, already a re-hire!), further waging the war against real journalism (Assange’s embassy removal), and has expressed his desire to worsen the Zionist genocide that Genocide Joe is funding. it’s a UNIPARTY! Don’t get obsessed with it’s drama & personnel changes.

    • Cankerpuss July 8, 2024 at 10:30 am #

      Good point, Rudy. The previous “adults” in the room really didn’t do much good for us as a nation. Constant spending of money we don’t have. Constantly waging illegal wars in shit hole countries that pose absolutely no threat to America. Unchecked illegal immigration.

      In fact, I can’t think of any time when we had adults in charge in Washington during my entire life time and I’m half a century old now.

      • C.O.Jones July 8, 2024 at 10:53 am #

        Good points both rudy and Cankerpuss!

        People are starting to see how the deep state is controlling the narrative. “Joe Biden” was sharp as a razor one day and a week later was a train loaded with flaming dumpsters wrecking into a fuel depot.

        It’s plain to see that we have no viable alternative than the guy who promotes slimy swamp rats.

        The last guy who tried to end the forever wars lost his life for trying but his nephew is stepping up with the same agenda in mind. This man is aware of the power of the MIC (pronounced deep state) and doesn’t care.

        I realize it’s heresy to utter this challenge but I’m doing it anyway:

        The same people who told you Biden was sharper than ever are amping up the smear campaign against Bobby Kennedy. Did you believe them when they lied to you about Biden? Do you believe them when they lie to you about Kennedy? Go watch Kennedy’s interviews from this decade and give consideration to the only candidate who has a sincere intention of ‘ending the undue influence of the military industrial complex’ and actually turning the resources of our fallen republic to helping its people. Our alternative is to choose more of the same old BS.

        • Paula D July 8, 2024 at 11:19 am #

            Martin Armstrong just today calls for Trump to name RFK Jr as his Attorney General as part and parcel of his campaign ticket! (Essentially RFK could suspend his campaign and run as a ‘triumvirate’ with Trump and whoever he chooses as VP.)

            So long as nothing happens to the Pres, Armstrong argues that the AG is more important – and wields more power – than the VP.

            Yes, sometimes even a curmudgeon can be a dreamer!

          • C.O.Jones July 8, 2024 at 12:22 pm #

            While I think RFK Jr would be an excellent AG, Trump is not going to name any non-swamp rats to any significant role.

            Maybe Jeff Sessions?
            Bill Barr?
            Merrick Garland?

          • elysianfield July 8, 2024 at 12:28 pm #

            It has been suggested that, no more than a few days after the JFK assassination, that Bobby Kennedy, then still the highest law enforcement officer in the nation, believed that the CIA was complicit in the assassination. EVEN FROM A POSITION OF POWER, he kept his mouth shut and did nothing.

            And then, years later, in LA, some people did some things….

          • Heartlander July 8, 2024 at 12:44 pm #


            Yes, the Attorney General is a VERY powerful person.

            In my own state of Kansas, our former Attorney General, a Republican, saved us from the worst Covid policies of our batshit Covidiot governor, a Democrat (of course).

            The Democrat bitch actually got re-elected in 2022, but only because of the hysterical pro-abortion vote of the purple-haired millennials and rich liberal women.

            BUT our current Attorney General, a Republican, is doing awesome stuff like SUING PFIZER. And the Democrat governor can’t do a damn thing to stop him.

          • Paula D July 8, 2024 at 4:21 pm #

            I never heard that, EF, but I do know that Truman wrote an opinion piece that ran Dec. 22, 1963, (I forget where it ran), saying that the CIA needed to be reined in, so it makes sense that RFK would suspect them also.

            I did hear that if he had become president, opening an investigation into the JFK assassination was a top priority, and that was part of the reason he was running.

            RFK, Jr. already said that he knows who killed his uncle and his dad, and that they need to be reined in.

            We’ll see what happens. The CIA was only 16 years old when they blew off JFK’s head.
            They have learned softer methods of disposing of US presidents since then.

            Trashing RFK, Jr. will probably work on the American people, who have also changed since 1963.

            Propaganda works well on them.

            Did you know that men can become pregnant? Yes, it’s true.
            Science says so.

            Also, RFK, Jr hit on a 23 y.o. woman some decades ago. Obviously he is unfit for the presidency.

      I would disagree that Clinton bombed the pharma factory OR Serbia over a blowjob.

      As is clear to everyone now, (everyone with half a brain), Big Pharma is partial owner of the US government and the US government will commit atrocities to protect their profits.

      Clinton bombed the pharma factory in Sudan to stop them from producing cheaper drugs for Africans, period.

      The destruction of Yugoslavia started in 1991, long before the blowjob, and the bombing of Serbia in 1999, was the culmination of the long campaign.

      The US then stole the land of a farmer in Kosovo, built the biggest base in Europe, Camp Bondsteel, and has used to it train terrorists, and traffic drugs and women since.

      Nothing to do with a blowjob.

        No real disagreement. The “blow job” reference was more of a metaphor for the insubstantial bullsh-t that is often given as an excuse for the Crime Gang (either the “Dem” side or “Repub” cohort) for whatever illegal action they’re about to commit. WMDs were, also, not the reason we invaded Iraq…nor the (non-existent) Gulf of Tonkin attack, Libyan Rape Squads, Kuwaiti incubator babies… the point is not the excuse per se but the fact that flimsy cover stories are all the Crime Gang feels they need to con a nation that refuses to EDUCATE its citizens.

      Richard M. Nixon Will You Please Go Now!

      By Art Buchwald
      Tuesday, July 30, 1974

      My good friend Dr. Seuss wrote a book a few years ago titled “Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now!” He sent me a copy the other day and crossed out “Marvin K. Mooney” and replaced it with “Richard M. Nixon.” It sounded like fun so I asked him if I could reprint it. Please read it aloud.

          If republicans were not uniparty, they would invoke the 25th amendment and pull Biden out of office by end of week – just like the democrats would do to Trump if he doddered like Biden has.

          I think we are watching a rally by Biden and his supporters. I’m betting Trump and crew are so inept, Biden comes out of the convention with a groundswell of support – on to victory!

    As JHK hinted at, on a legal basis, Kamala Harris is the only person to whom his very substantial campaign war-chest can go to in the event that Biden can’t or won’t run for re-election, so a new candidate would mean starting fundraising efforts from scratch less than four months before the election. Possible, but not an enviable position to be in.

    And I don’t think having Obama run as the new VP would work as a legal dodge, because if you are elected VP, you are elected into that office as someone who is qualified to be President if the original President can’t or won’t continue on in that office. That, along with a side-gig of being a goodwill ambassador on behalf of the President, is what being VP is all about.

    • Heartlander July 8, 2024 at 12:53 pm #

      Karl Denninger has a good piece today on the constitutional requirement for the president to be a person whose parents were U.S. citizens when the person was born. Kamala Harris is NOT so qualified and never should have been named vice-president.

      Go to market-ticker.org, and click in the right-hand sidebar on “What the media does NOT want read.”

      Unfortunately, we already crossed that Rubicon in 2008, with Obama, whose father was a citizen of Kenya, not the U.S.

        I can read the Constitution also. It says that the president must be born in the US.

        It says nothing about the parents.

        The relevant person was John McCain, not Obama. He was born in Panama. His parents were citizens, but, again, the Constitution says nothing about the parents.
        The Congress back then passed a special law allowing him to run, I read somewhere.

        • Uncle Bob July 8, 2024 at 10:27 pm #

          If McCain (or anyone else) was born on a US military base or the grounds of a US embassy or consulate, that counts as being born on US soil.

      I don’t think they can get around Harris, for a number of reasons.

      Financial, legal, she won’t go peacefully, and more.

      I think they are stuck with her. They really should have thought about what could possibly go wrong earlier, and not played their childish games with the presidency.

      The DNC knew that Biden was deteriorating and nevertheless was so feckless as to put in an idiot as no. 2 that no one can even stand.

      What were they thinking?

      Now the public, or large swaths of it, is attentive, watching the game closely, and know that it is a game.

      I don’t think the DNC can get away with sidelining Harris.

    “You see, the 22nd Amendment only says: No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice. Doesn’t say anything about getting elected veep and then being elevated to president by happenstance.”

    And this is the reason I keep coming back to Clusterfuck Nation twice a week. Good God, Jim, I love the way your mind works.

    Just remember, nothing in politics happens unless it has been intricately planned before hand. They already know what they are going to do with “Joe Biden.” They already have his replacement picked. Having this brain dead old soup stinking fart in the oval office will only play into their dastardly plans.

    Obama being his VP? At this point I’ll accept any theory. After all, this is America. The land of emasculated men and fat, half naked women covered with tattoos who don’t know what a woman is. Anything is possible.

      Westernized males cooperated in their own emasculation. This is one of the reasons why women doesn’t respect them anymore, and are now actively seeking to be subjugated by men of the Islamic persuasion.

        Yep. Spot on. Women cannot deny biology. They try but they fail. They will always crave an alpha male that can provide for them and protect them. There may still be some American males that fit this bill but the pickins are slim and getting slimmer as the wimin continue to push women’s rights.

        I’m 50 years old. I can tell you that were I back in my 20s again I would avoid the modern day American woman like the plague. Most of them are freakishly ugly with their pierced faces, purple hair and tattooed cellulose bulging out of the too small under garments.

          Funny. My son, in his second marriage, had a step son with functional autism…evident enough, however, that the USMC would not take him. He is in his 20’s now, and once told me that he was going to Europe…Scandinavia specifically, to find a woman, as US women were unsuitable.

          At the time of the conversation, I thought the comment a bit odd, but evidence of an odd intelligence. He DID go to Scandinavia, and returned without success. He is in Wyoming, now.

        One lesson to be learned from the zeitgeist is that the human brain requires a moderate input of hardship in order to function properly.
        Once deprived from its former source of challenges – the struggle for surviving – the brain resorted to create its own internal challenges, hence the multiple and ever increasing mental disorders we witness all around us. Women are particularly prone to this mental disarray because, naturally (due to pregnancy), they have always been more protected (and will always be, as long as humans exist) than men.

      • tuco22 July 8, 2024 at 12:38 pm #

        Yes, I read yesterday that a Christian minister has proposed that Christians stop protesting or praying in front of abortion clinics, because that’s the “physical” way of spiritual warfare, and “they” are always going to outmatch us because they have limitless resources and we do not. Instead, he suggested just prayer, which would be the “spiritual” way of fighting the principalities and rulers in high places. I’m tending to agree with him. How many more old ladies do we want to send to jail because they prayed in front of an abortion clinic, and I might add that those brave boys in blue don’t have a problem arresting an elderly woman for doing so.

        • mary.m July 8, 2024 at 1:30 pm #

          I would add that Jesus specifically instructed that prayer should be in private.

          Matthew 6:5-8
          But when you do pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your father who is in the secret place, and when your father who sees you in secret will reward you openly.

          • Heartlander July 8, 2024 at 2:40 pm #

            The context of that quote is Jesus criticizing hypocrites, people who “show off” with prayers and then skimp on God’s other requirements for a virtuous life. Jesus never told people to NOT witness to Truth. In fact, His last instructions to His followers before ascending back to heaven were to go out and preach the Gospel to everyone on earth.

            Those who are praying in front of death chambers are witnessing to the Truth of God’s love for all human beings, each of whom is an immortal amd unique person whom He has lovingly and purposefully created.

            Stop praying the problem. Is it the “desire of your heart” that the “clinic” become a neighborhood thrift store?

            Give thanks for this outcome that you have envisioned and believe in. Call things that are not as though they are.

            Then take one step in that direction. Begin saving money to buy something in it.

            All things work together for good for those called to His purpose, which is to bless. Let the details be His.

            Jarek, the LDS Church blows hundreds of millions of dollars on opulent temples every year and claims to be the same as the church Christ established upon the earth during his mortal ministry.

            Makes sense, doesn’t it?

          • mary.m July 8, 2024 at 5:48 pm #

            @ Heartlander, not exactly. He is comparing how worshippers should behave to how hypocrites do behave.
            Give Alms in private. Pray in private. How to pray: our Father …

            Generally, he’s saying the hypocrites follow the letter of the (Judaic) law, but not the spirit.

            The Father wants worshippers to follow the spirit.

            Eg, don’t just recite “Thou shalt not kill.” Believe it & live it. That is why, right now, the Orthodox Jews are refusing to kill the Palestinians. Their Rabbis are telling them it is better to go to jail than register for the draft.

    In order to create this there must be an obvious landslide to bring along the hearts and minds.

    The only way to get any interest is chaos (hand-wringing about Biden as if he’s been running anything) and that’s not really even working.

      A former two term president can be appointed VP. If he/she becomes president, they can serve out the one term.

      Obama becomes VP under say, Harris. Harris abdicates, Obama is president until 2028. He appoints Michelle as VP or she wins in 2028, we would have 20 years potentially of a president named Obama. 20 years of a Black president in a nation that is 16% Black. 1/5 of a century.

      The second part says that if the VP is president for more than two years, he/she can only run for one term afterwards.

      The key word is “elected”.

        20 years. 1/5 of a century. 2009-2017 + 2021-2033 = 20 years. Correct.

        But 2033-1776 = 257 years

        20 years / 257 years = 7.8%

        Only 7.8% while 16% of the population? We’ll need yet another 20 years (2033-2053) to only get to 14.4% – and their 16% would still be under-represented.

    Old Joe is playing a dangerous game. His handlers have no intention of letting him run, no matter how much he declares that he’s staying. Dr. Jill does not want to give up her status to care for a sickly, demented old man with spoon feedings and diaper changes. Taki Theodoracopulos said last year that Trump would be the nominee, but not the next President and I don’t think anyone truly realizes the lengths that the Left will go to in order to remain in power. With the Clintons firmly in charge of the DNC, I think old Joe better sleep with one eye open.

            Until the validity of the election results can be proved to be valid by paper ballots counted and validated by hand, the process is bullshit.

            No matter what the Deep State judges say.

            Right now, the vote can be manipulated by many % points and as the split is close to 50-50, that makes it anyone’s game to cheat.

    In breaking news, Donald Trump has disavowed Project 2025.

    Alex Jones is apoplectic.

    • ezinmn July 8, 2024 at 12:07 pm #

      The dems plan to use Project 2025 to cast the GOP as radicals. Trump knows what P2025 is about. The main thrust of the plan is to bring in a team of highly qualified individuals to help run the government on Day 1. Its been up and running for nearly 2 years. Trump’s disavowing is a head fake.

      • C.O.Jones July 8, 2024 at 12:13 pm #

        Oh, my gosh, you should see some of the dire predictions the democrats are spouting about P2025. The coming dictatorship of DJT! It’ll be a dictatorship! (like we don’t already have one). Everyone will lose their rights! They’re running a commercial on TV right now warning that DJT will force women to carry dead babies within themselves because of the “rollback” of Roe vs Wade. Honestly.

        “Trump knows what P2025 is about.” ~ ezinmn

        Details are important. Did Trump know what “Project 2025” is about, does he know about the Heritage Foundation Policy, or perhaps he is only familiar with their recommendations?

        Trump Administration Embraces Heritage Foundation Policy Recommendations Jan 23, 2018


        About Project 2025

        “The actions of liberal politicians in Washington have created a desperate need and unique opportunity for conservatives to start undoing the damage the Left has wrought and build a better country for all Americans in 2025.

        It is not enough for conservatives to win elections. If we are going to rescue the country from the grip of the radical Left, we need both a governing agenda and the right people in place, ready to carry this agenda out on day one of the next conservative administration.”


        It sure looks like the Trump team has come to the realization how corrupt and serious the deep state democrats are about holding onto power and wining this 2024 election, and they are gearing-up to counter the corruption in a professional manner. Is this part of the Project 2025 plan?

        The Republican National Committee’s Election Integrity Program


        [RNC Chair Michael Whatley, who appeared Sunday alongside Lara Trump, said the committee is working with state legislatures, boards of elections and secretaries of states to ensure “we get the rules of the road right.”

        “And if they’re not, we’re going to go file lawsuits. We have already filed over 80 different lawsuits in 24 states to make sure that we have the ground ready to go for safe elections,” he said, adding later, “What we want are fair, accurate, secure and transparent elections. And when we have it, then we’re going to protect the sanctity of that ballot. We’re going to make it easy to vote and hard to cheat.”]


        [“This year is the year we do it,” Lara Trump said at Turning Point USA’s Detroit convention. “We are also sending a loud and clear message out there to anyone who thinks about cheating in an election: we will find you, we will track you down, and we will prosecute you to the full extent of the law.”

        “What we need to ensure is integrity in our electoral process,” she added. “We can never go back and repeat 2020, but we can learn the lessons from 2020.”

        The scale of the effort is massive — Trump announced the effort would include “over 100,000 poll watchers and over 500 lawyers.” The RNC will also set up hotlines allowing poll watchers to report issues quickly and efficiently.]


        “We need to have election integrity. So that we do not have drop boxes, for example, that we have voter ID, for example, that absentee ballots have to have a witness signature, have to have a signature by the voter,” ~ Michael Whatley


        It sure looks like the election will be contested.

        Trump is telling voters that “if he becomes resident again, the US will quit spending hundreds of millions of dollars fighting other people’s wars.”

        He is telling the audience at fundraisers for “superdonors” that if Russia invaded Ukraine or China invaded Taiwan, he would bomb Moscow and/or Beijing.

        While those may sound like two different promises, it is possible that Trump thinks Ukraine and Taiwan are wars of the US. That’s the deep-state point of view – no different from “Joe Biden.”

        I don’t think those statements would elicit a smirk or an eye-roll from Putin. I’m not sure how Pee Pee Jing would react.

        • TPTB-USA July 10, 2024 at 5:02 pm #

          I would suggest that we need more details.

          I suspect that Trump would consider Putin’s point of view, and perhaps not consider it an invasion because of the implications that it was provoked. I think we can also assume that “Joe Biden’s” perspective on Ukraine is perhaps 180 degrees different than Trump’s.

          As far as China and Taiwan, isn’t their an arrangement where a peaceful unification is supposed to happen in 10 or 20 years. So, doesn’t it seem reasonable for Trump to tell Xi that he would bomb Beijing if he invaded China during his watch? I mean, what is the difference between an all out war with China, and just dropping a bomb on Beijing?

          The devil is in the details, and details matter.

  27. Heartlander July 8, 2024 at 12:10 pm #

    Everyone’s talking about Biden’s CAMPAIGN… but why is nobody talking about the fact that Biden is the President of the United States NOW? AT THIS MOMENT, and for SIX MORE MONTHS. With WWIII going on — on two very active fronts right now, with more coming any day now — and the hand of the President (or some mystery person) on the nuclear button.

    Is there nobody who cares that the fate of the world is right now, at this very moment, in the hands of a dementia patient? Forget November, this is the reality TODAY.

    And in case you need reminding, some common results of dementia include paranoid delusions and aggressiveness. Yep, just the person we want to have access to the nuclear launch codes.


    • Paula D July 8, 2024 at 4:36 pm #

      Exactly, Heartlander.

      The Overton Window allows you to say that Biden has dementia and should not run again, but it does NOT allow you to make the obvious conclusion that if he is too senile to run, he is too senile to rule. (Although he did claim that he rules the world, in one recent interview.)

      Just as in Feb. Prosecutor Hur said that Biden was too senile to stand trial. You were also not allowed to ask that same obvious question about ruling.

      The other part is that you are allowed to endlessly speculate about which Democrat governor you think they will choose, but you may NOT talk about RFK, Jr as a viable option.

      Most Americans stay within the proscribed Overton Window, no matter whether they call themselves left or right, including most people on this blog.

    • mary.m July 8, 2024 at 6:41 pm #

      He’s been too senile to rule all along. Before that, too unethical & corrupt to be anywhere near government. Too inept to be dogcatcher.

    Bill Gates launches “maggot milk” to replace dairy products


    Now that he has already gotten the ball rolling on eliminating and replacing all meat products for the slave classes, billionaire eugenicist Bill Gates is now going after milk and dairy.

    Gates announced a new food-like liquid product called “EntoMilk” that he says can replace milk from animals. EntoMilk, by the way, is made from crushed up maggots.

    This “dairy alternative” is made from either maggots or “black soldier fly larvae.” Once blended and processed, the result is a “rich and creamy liquid which looks and acts just like dairy.”

    “It’s got a very creamy mouthfeel,” said someone in the promotional video for EntoMilk below.

    According to Gates, EntoMilk is necessary because traditional dairy milk comes from farms that he claims are destroying the planet.

    I look forward to God’s Judgement Day.

    • C.O.Jones July 8, 2024 at 12:34 pm #

      Saw the video for that, OG – positively nauseating.

      This evil bastard – Gates – is responsible for more crimes against humanity than anyone I can think of and I’m giving him a free pass on his crappy software.

      Releasing malaria-ridden mosquitos into Florida.
      Atmospheric Injection to blot out the sun.
      Paralyzing and killing infants in India with “his” polio vaccine.
      Covid -19.
      Promoting the drinking of chemically treated urine.
      Lab grown meat derived from cancer cells.
      Maggot milk.
      The next pandemic he guaranteed.

      It’s a sad commentary on society that this guy is walking around, man boobs swaying in the breeze, breathing free air.

      I. too, am looking forward to God’s Judgement Day.

            It just gives the self-appointed “elites” something else in a growing list to laugh about.

            Marie-Antoinette is attributed the quote “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche” which was translated as “Let them eat cake.”

            Now we have Bill Gates saying:
            “Let them eat bugs”
            “Let them eat maggots and we will tell them it’s ice cream!”
            “Let them eat cancer cells and we will tell them it’s meat.”
            “Let them drink urine.”
            “Tell them trees are bad for the earth and must be cut down.”
            “Tell them they’re all going to die without my death shots.”

            The most egregious quote is something like:

            “Tell them it’s all to save the planet! These idiots will be dead before they figure out we are lying to them.”

            Yeah, Bill – har de har har.

          Many, many decades ago, a farm owner’s dog gave birth to her puppies deep at the bottom of a gopher hole.

          I was the only one small enough to squeeze in, so they grabbed me by the ankles & 5′ down I went, face first.

          Did I mention some flies had laid eggs between the puppies toes & the gopher hole was now lined with maggots?

          It was a good 10 years before I could eat rice again. ???

    Another take on the god-biden chat, c+p from WSJ’s editorial page:

    Mr. President, the Almighty is on the line. Not the Deity you invoked Friday night in your interview on ABC. The Big Guy appears to be sitting out this presidential race. We mean the closest thing to the Almighty in American politics: the Democratic-media establishment. They want you gone, sir, and the question is when you admit it and oblige.

    President Biden’s interview on Friday with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos was a portrait in defiance that won’t stem the establishment campaign unfolding against him. The media that covered for him has turned with a vengeance. The sleuths at the New York Times and Washington Post have suddenly discovered that the debate wasn’t merely a “bad night.” Now they tell us that there have been many such episodes of demonstrable cognitive decline. Who knew?

    Well, the American people knew, since they are not oblivious to evidence they can see. They have said so in every poll for a year. Special counsel Robert Hur knew. (See our editorial, “A Tipping Point on Biden’s Decline,” Feb. 10, 2024.)

    But the debate has forced the establishment to admit the truth they could no longer deny. The Times, the Atlantic, the New Yorker, CNN, Morning Joe, Politico, Axios, the Hollywood and Wall Street donors—the gang’s all here, moving in sync to cover their coverup tracks. Now that Mr. Biden looks like a loser to Donald Trump, Scranton Joe has got to go.

    Elected Democrats have been more cautious, but those defections have also begun. First came the backbenchers in competitive seats, like Maine Rep. Jared Golden. Mark Warner, the Senator from suddenly competitive Virginia, is said to be rounding up colleagues to see if they can ease Mr. Biden out. The goal is to protect Democrats running for re-election in states where a Trump tide could engulf them.

    The decisive moment will come when the Obama wing of the establishment turns. Barack Obama’s early post-debate backing—“Bad debate nights happen. Trust me, I know”—has become studied silence. His former adviser, David Axelrod, all but said on CNN Friday night, more in sorrow than anger, that the end is nigh for the President.

    Mr. Biden may continue to resist, as he did on Friday night with Mr. Stephanopoulos. But the longer he does, the more brutal the establishment campaign will become. The President’s every word will be scrutinized for mistakes, his every step examined for signs of Parkinson’s or some other malady. The questions will be who knew what about his decline, and when?

    CNN’s chief medical correspondent, Sanjay Gupta, now wants Mr. Biden to take a cognitive test. Mr. Biden said Friday that his daily work is a cognitive test, which is the problem. Here’s how the President answered Mr. Stephanopoulos’s question Friday on his debate performance:

    “Yeah, look. The whole way I prepared, nobody’s fault, mine. Nobody’s fault but mine. I, uh—I prepared what I usually would do sittin’ down as I did come back with foreign leaders or National Security Council for explicit detail. And I realized—’bout partway through that, you know, all—I get quoted the New York Times had me down, at 10 points before the debate, nine now, or whatever the hell it is. The fact of the matter is that, what I looked at is that he also lied 28 times. I couldn’t—I mean, the way the debate ran, not—my fault, no one else’s fault, no one else’s fault.”

    It’s admirable that he didn’t blame his advisers, but Mr. Biden has a hard time finishing a sentence, much less completing an argument. When he loses his train of thought he deflects with the word “anyway.”

    This is not a man who will be able to persuade Democrats that he can stand up to Mr. Trump’s assaults for the next four months—nor persuade the public that he can withstand the rigors of the office and deal with Vladimir Putin until he’s 86 years old.

    Democrats know that as long as Mr. Biden remains in the race, the news cycle will be dominated by his infirmities. Even if Mr. Biden defies the establishment and marches to the nomination, Democratic divisions and unhappiness will be an almost daily story. Mr. Trump might help now and then by reminding voters why they dislike him. But there is, to reverse Mr. Biden’s formulation, no deus ex machina coming to save the President’s campaign.


    The backroom conversations are already underway about what to do if, or more likely when, Mr. Biden bows out. The encomiums will be effusive. He will be praised as if he is George Washington at the Chicago convention.

    The establishment consensus is already forming that the only alternative is Vice President Kamala Harris. There will be some grumbling that she also trails Mr. Trump in the polls, and she will have to defend inflation and other parts of Mr. Biden’s record. Democrats would do better to have an open contest and settle it at the convention, which would grip the world’s attention.

    But the establishment in a party that reveres identity politics will fear taking the nomination away from a minority woman. That argument is for another day. For now the nation waits for Mr. Biden to take the Almighty’s call.

    • OG July 8, 2024 at 12:52 pm #

        Not my thoughts, OG. Just sharing what the wall st journal published in its editorial page with the CFN crowd.

        I have nothing to say about the electoral farce, except fuck it. I’d only repeat myself, sermonizing about chucking the TV, quitting the rat race, growing your own, living as much as possible in the gray economy, interacting as little as possible with the Leviathan.

        And the vote is into screens, into a virtual digital realm. No paper ballots: who needs another reason to stay out of it? But there are plenty more.

        • OG July 8, 2024 at 1:39 pm #

          And those are the valuable thoughts of which I speak. It is good to have you posting again.

          Hat’s off to you, too, Rulo for not just talkin’ the talk but for also walkin’ the walk. A lot of people see that the end is indeed nigh and they run to Walmart and buy some beans, rice and a 5 litres of water. And they hustled home and made it in time for the kick-off.

          iirc, you are in … north Florida? Farming and preparing for what’s next, right?

          I don’t mean to get too personal but a fella doesn’t get to talk to a guy that walked the walk too often.

          • Rulo Deschamps July 8, 2024 at 5:53 pm #

            OG, walking the walk is embracing voluntary poverty, minimal consumption, make do, do without, all that. Not necessarily going into farming (yes, small farm, North FL).

            Sometimes my comments about “grow your own” get misinterpreted here. I am told I’m not being realistic, the person may be older, having never grown anything, not having land or whatnot.

            “Grow your own” is a way to say “be useful to the community” and it can take many forms. The goal is to be able, in time, to not depend on the money economy; we don’t know when but digital currencies or other forms of control are coming.

            So my point is not so much the “grow” part if you cannot do it, but we all know things and can do things that others will value: repairing things, building things, being able to cure, to teach, to entertain, to protect… and yes, to raise chickens, if that’s your inclination and you have a talent for it.

            Anyway, thanks. I don’t comment much because of too much work, and would bring only frustrated comments to the room, in the sense that I believe our host here has lost sight of some important alternative angles (energy, resource depletion) that were the reason I started reading his books in the first place.

            You’d be surprised, but years ago Mr K would explain the Middle East clusterfuck by too many people in very arid, unproductive lands, made possible by generations of cheap food imports and donations made possible by abundant cheap oil and gas.

            I only mention this because I know how… intense, let’s say, you and others here are re the current Palestinian situation. My 2¢: It’s not about good guys and bad guys, or religion, or the Holocaust. It’s about millions living in lands that can only support thousands, with little water, topsoil, etc.

          Merton wasn’t really a Christian, just a generic mystic practicing in a Christian context. Even more so than me, actually.

          He dreamed on jumping ship to Tibetan Buddhism. Nyingmapas. Tantric consorts. Movie stars!

          A nice man, deeply learned, with some real spiritual practice and experiences under his belt, but marred by his obsession with Leftism.

          • Rulo Deschamps July 8, 2024 at 5:29 pm #


            “a generic mystic practicing in a Christian context…” – perhaps, but most of us only know the spiritual tradition we grew up in, and frame the insights and revelations we receive later in life within the parameters of our spiritual upbringing.

            For example, in my prayers, if I say the Hail Mary, of course I see her as “mother of god” but also as “our mother” and thus, as “earth” or “Gaia” or “Pacha Mama” – the divine, nurturing mother archetype.

            All this without words. The only words, which are good words and don’t need anything added, are those of the prayer; in Spanish, too, because the rhythm and cadence also matter, as the orientals and American Indians and many others know, chants, mantras, repetition of a ritual. What am I going to do? Sign up to Hare Krishna or Russian Orthodox and learn new prayers and mantras that will feel forced, like new shoes that cannot be broken into?

            Left, Right, both are part of this crap world and mean little anymore. Both fail to imagine the possibility of living in the world in a different manner, outside greed and profit. Only the fringes of both reject capitalism, but their visions are even worse, mass murder, gulags.

            Rulo: No. That’s not good for you. You’re already grounded. You must rise…..

            Consider Nuit, of the Book of the Law:

            26. Then saith the prophet and slave of the beauteous one: Who am I, and what shall be the sign? So she answered him, bendingdown, a lambent flame of blue, all-touching, all penetrant, her lovely hands upon the black earth, & her lithe body arched for love, and her soft feet not hurting the little flowers: Thou knowest! And the sign shall be my ecstasy, the consciousness of the continuity of existence, the omnipresence of my body.

            27. Then the priest answered & said unto the Queen of Space, kissing her lovely brows, and the dew of her light bathing his whole body in a sweet-smelling perfume of sweat: O Nuit, continuous one of Heaven, let it be ever thus; that men speak not of Thee as One but as None; and let them speak not of thee at all, since thou art continuous!

            28. None, breathed the light, faint & faery, of the stars, and two.

            29. For I am divided for love’s sake, for the chance of union.

            30. This is the creation of the world, that the pain of division is as nothing, and the joy of dissolution all.

            Now compare this with the Woman clothed with the Sun in Revelations. And our Lady of Guadaloupe, with the stars under her feet.

          Hey Rulo, good of you to join us around the old pickle barrel.

          Yes, the election is a farce. Anyone who thinks that “We the people” may have any influence in the direction of our country is dancing to the tune played by the Mighty Wurlitzer.

          All of the “news” is just the Narrative setting us up to accept a future that has already been decided. The unease among the Democrat faithful. The Big Guy’s dogged determination to not be pushed aside. The seductive whispers of “Big Mike can do it!” As organic as astroturf.

          Distractions to deceive us into thinking that the life we have lived thus far can remain relatively unchanged into the future.

          • Rulo Deschamps July 8, 2024 at 8:55 pm #

            Hey Blackbird, I do hang around the barrel, and don’t like to miss the musings of a few of the regulars, including you, or especially you. But I rarely participate, because I have very little to say that I haven’t already said ad nauseam.

            “The future is already decided…” Not yours, not mine. Why?

            Your future, and mine, WILL remain relatively unchanged until the day we die, which may or may not be the day some enforcers and revenooers show up at the gate. If nobody shows up, we may live longer, but in a future nobody else but ourselves chose… for our neck of the woods, for a limited time, without hope of winning in the end, but under OUR rules.

            We have to start seeing these courtiers, these grifters and megalomaniacs, for the carnies they are, low level magicians that can only trick an audience drunk on cheap gin, “look here, not there”

            They will fail in the end, not because of heroic revolutions but because they’ve made everything so hypercomplex, crappy, poorly designed, energy-hungry, and absurdly irrational, but because the resources will just not be there to control the world much longer.

            Smaller and smaller units are the future, Balkanization everywhere, Republic of Michigan with an hour a day of electricity in the bigger towns and none in the countryside.

            That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

            Cheers, Bird!

          • Blackbird July 9, 2024 at 5:06 pm #

            I don’t say anything new either – although my latest theories on Trump and Big Mike are kinda new – but that doesn’t keep me from commenting.

            I like your optimism for the future, and if “We, the people” have any chance of surviving into the future, I think the course you have chosen is the correct one. Self-sufficiency and community.

            Unfortunately, I don’t think we will be allowed to survive disconnected from the Matrix. And of course staying connected will guarantee our destruction. The world will be easier for our masters to control when there are fewer of us in it. Between “Covid” (we haven’t seen the “long term effects” of the Vaxx yet) and “Disease X” – and its WHO mandates – not to mention declining birthrates everywhere but Africa, I think we are on our way to a much smaller, and much more controllable, population.

    It is painfully obvious that “President” Joe Biden is a mindless, decrepit old man being manipulated by his handlers. This ridiculous attempt to fool the American people into believing Biden is worthy of a second term as our leader has failed miserably.

    With this in mind, a commentator recently stated that Joe Biden’s rapidly deteriorating mental health is nothing to worry about. It was pointed out that incapacitated Joe Biden has absolutely nothing to do with running the country. This would indicate that Joe Biden is nothing more than a stumbling, animated corpse, being propped up for the cameras. This was also an admission that Joe Biden has no part in running the Biden “Administration.”

    It was then claimed that we should focus on all of the wonderful things that Joe Biden’s “Administration” has accomplished over the last 3 plus years. (Open boarders, rampant inflation, overwhelming national debt, the ongoing financial collapse, dramatic increase in violent crime and the prospect of a full scale nuclear war were not mentioned.) We were further assured that there will be even more great things to come, under another Democratic presidency run by Biden’s administrators, if Joe Biden is elected to a second term.

        I’m born in 1965. I had a lot of free time when I was 22. Summer of 1987.

        So I watched a fair bit of the Iran Contra Hearings live on tv. That’s when I knew that POTUS* was a figurehead.

        Now the USA is sometimes referred to as The Jones Plantation.**

        * Of course, I had not yet heard of the term POTUS until … when did that acronym/nickname start? I wanna guess Bush/Cheney Admin. POTUS sounds like a Karl Rove, doesn’t it?

          Ha, OG, I graduated from high school in 1965.

          I really believe that the Deep State started forming two years earlier, in 1963, and it has been a constant battle by them against the power limitations of the Constitution ever since. Socialism is a cancer, pushed by the power elite of the government, to the level of what is now the Uniparty. They have taken 6 decades to erode the separation of powers and their attack on the SCOTUS is the last straw. Uniparty totalitarianism could exist within five years if the Left stays in control.

    Meanwhile in France, Islamists and Marxists, without really having much in common beyond their hatred of the traditional French Nation, team up to win a surprising electoral victory. Despite the win, they were in the streets of Paris setting fires, smashing windows & battling the police. Huge crowds formed to celebrate, many Palestinian, ISIS and red Hammer & Sickle banners were flying, not a French flag to be seen. Two demands were immediately made: recognize a Palestinian State, and remove all immigration restrictions from 3rd World countries. It looks like the Camp of the Saints have arrived and France has fallen (as predicted by Jean Raispail 50 years ago)

    “And so it goes in the twilight hours of our forty-sixth president.”

    And so it also goes in the twilight days of once-laughingly-characterized The Indispensable Nation. When a sound societal and institutional foundation has become cracked into a billion concrete pieces and the once-formidable four walls have crumbled into so much piles of corn flakes… the Shining City of a Hill now takes on more the look of a bombed-out-looking tenement on a mostly empty street in the worst section of Detroit in the ’70s.

    “He just declared to the nation that only an ‘act of God’ will prevent him from running for re-election.”

    Prevent him from running? No. The Almighty has put the Resident right where he is to be today’s avatar for a Nation in full retreat and collapse. The perfect Captain for the Good Ship Titanic. (So why are Jill and Hunter now wearing life jackets all the time?).

    America should not be piling on and demanding that The Resident take the next slow train to Dover. America should be thanking The Res for ‘Beating Medicare!’. Who the hell else was able to Beat Medicare. Trump never did. Kamala sure wont. Mister Cali Hair wont. The overweight governor of the bankrupted State of Illinois wont either. No… only Resident Biden was able to defeat that dreaded menace of Medicare. You know, that one social program that actually does some good for millions of older Americans. Imagine that – a governmental program that actually does some good! Who would have believed that?

    So glad that the Resident beat Medicare and put a stop to all that helpful service to people who needed it.

    “For instance, the convention in Chicago…”

    Again, what a perfect avatar for Our Times. A failed Democrat Party holding a National convention in a failed and bankrupt Blue City. Overseen by a Chicago Mayor who many see as even worse than the last horrible Chicago Mayor. In a State lead by a governor who has way more wealth and body weight than answers to our problems.

    And it the scenarios to get Saint Barack somehow back into the Big Chair become true… all America can say is ‘So The Hell What? Hasn’t ‘He’ been running everything the past four years anyway! Democracy… Shlemocracy. We want Our King! King B!

    Take a good look at Chicago, America. Take a good, long look. Chicago used to be a great American – a great World City. Now it is well on its way of looking like Detroit after the Sixties riots. And America is well down the road of becoming Chicago. Failing… bankrupt… delusional… with two bad baseball teams to dull our senses.

    And they quit making Cracker Jack and Jays Potato Chips and Field’s Frango Mints in Chicago many years ago. The canaries in the coal mine for a Age of Decay and Shame.

    re: boarders

    Border is a noun that means the boundary of a geographic location, such as a state or country. Border is also a verb that means to form such a boundary. Boarder is a noun that means a person renting lodging, which includes food. To help you remember boarder, think of “room and board” and “boarding school.”

    Be grateful for small mercies. Here on Airstrip One, we’re having to watch the other half of the Uniparty congratulating itself for forming a ‘majority government’ with (a) fewer votes than it got when it lost the 2019 election and (b) only 20 percent of the electorate actually voting for it. And they’re calling it a landslide …

    I went along to the polling station and defaced my ballot paper with a message. It didn’t feel as useful as I thought it might (they have to read out the number of spoiled votes) and I think I should have probably just stayed at home as the turnout was so abysmal that the message must have got through, even though no-one in ‘power’ will acknowledge it.

    My MP was re-elected with a significantly increased majority and is now Secretary of State for Scotland, a position I feel he has reached by walking over the bodies of vaxx-dead and injured Scots, about whom I’ve been trying to engage him for 2 years, to no avail. He even handed me back the copy of Ed Dowd’s book that I gave him on my doorstep and said he wouldn’t read it.

    Keir Starmer is a former member of the Trilateral Commission and is the Public Prosecutor who let Jimmy Savile carry on without hindrance. He was asked on national television if he preferred Davos or Westminster and fell over himself to enthuse about Davos and those ‘people I could see myself working with’.

    And he wanted to lock down harder and pass legislation to ‘deal with anti-vaxxers’.

    Heaven help us.

        The picture of his 3-year-old daughter over his shoulder was added to his Twitter and Facebook pages for the election. I will be reminding him that kids her age have died of heart attacks and strokes in the last few years. Then I’m done with him because, if it was a waste of time contacting him before, it will be an even bigger waste of time now.

        In other news, one of my husband’s female medical colleagues, aged around 40, has just ‘died suddenly’, with no cause mentioned. At least he still tells me. The similarly aged wife of another colleague dropped dead a couple of months ago while running a marathon. I predict none of them will say anything about it to each other, apart from how sad it is and what a shock.

        In different, but related other news, I saw on UK Column News today that the ADL has listed topics and terms whose use constitutes ‘extremism’. These include ‘died suddenly’, ‘turbocancer’, ‘plandemic’, ‘Agenda 21’ and many others in that vein.

          Attacking Israel on geopolitical grounds, or human rights grounds, is one thing. Bringing up a few names and not others when it comes to any controversial issue, the vaccination swindle in this case, is revealing of a prejudice, a bias. You have stated that’s not the case, you’re no antisemite (or anti-jew, Arabs are semites too) – so what gives?

          I looked it up, and it appears this iteration of the ADL is very different from what it was decades ago, woke. Still, my point stands.

      • GreenAlba July 8, 2024 at 8:46 pm #

        I don’t know, Rulo, but it seems that, for the Censorship Industrial Complex, talk of Agenda 21 means global conspiracy, which they reckon always comes back to anti-semitism. Likewise, talk of a ‘plandemic’ and vaxx issues generally suggests a global conspiracy, so same reasoning.

        • GreenAlba July 9, 2024 at 5:21 pm #

          I just remembered two more phrases whose use signals ‘extremism’, according to the ADL – ‘do your own research’ and ‘do the research’.

    As I write this I’ve just heard the Sec’y of State reaffirm Biden’s mental competence. So, on the hilarious presumption that our country is still grounded in logic and good faith, I offer this logical argument:

    If Biden is fit to hold office, he’s fit to stand trial.

    If Biden is unfit to stand trial, he’s unfit to hold office.

    Let’s believe our lyin’ eyes these past several years and proceed on the basis that Biden’s mentally unfit to hold office.

    If VP Harris is so clueless that she couldn’t see what the rest of us plainly saw, she’s manifestly unfit to be President or even a heartbeat away from the presidency.

    If VP Harris knew he was unfit, like the rest of us, then she’s guilty of dereliction of duty and should be impeached on that basis. And the complicit cabinet should resign as well.

    In this alternate universe, the Speaker of the House becomes President.

    But in our universe, many of us are apparently content to let an unelected cabal call the shots.

      Vote? March? Riot? Defenestrate?

      • Greg July 8, 2024 at 10:54 pm #

        Blackbird, I’ve asked myself that same question. I’ve slowly gathered a few suggestions. Mostly at the local level. Easy to say, hard to do, but far less hard than changing things well beyond your neighborhood.

        1) Make sure your county’s chief law enforcement officer, the County Sheriff, supports the 2A and considers your county to be a 2A sanctuary.

        2) Soros infiltration has been extending to County and municipal offices; at the local level, an aware citizenry has a fighting chance of having patriots rather than poltroons holding local office.

        3) Parents must also think of themselves as teachers, with the aim of making their children, on or before age 18, financially independent enough not to live in their basement, and emotionally mature enough to be spouses and parents themselves. A lot of teens fit that bill before WWI; let’s hope they don’t grow up the hard way after a WWIII. (In the short term, patriots on the school board will have a hard enough time keeping students away from hardcore porn and the mutilating scalpel; look to homeschooling and like minded parents for your children’s education.)

        4) If you belong to a church or other place of worship, get together with your fellow congregants and figure out how to keep it viable without the 501c status. Before the Revolutionary War, churches were speaking out against British tyranny. During the 60s, black churches were speaking out in favor of civil rights. What is your church doing today? Hopefully the pastor is not a FEMA-paid Judas goat to get you to board that bus to “safety.”

        5) Is your state legislator willing to nullify unconstitutional laws, whether by a packed SCOTUS or a cowed one?

        6) Courtesy of Dave Hodges.com, consider boycotts.

        These suggestions are more easily tackled in a conservative, rural county that a densely urban one. So maybe Step 1 is to move to friendly territory and circle the wagons with your new neighbors. I think Jim K’s right about society becoming more local and decentralized. If nothing else, these suggestions are in line with this megatrend.

        I’m sure other CFers have other ideas worth sharing. Good luck to all of us.

          “3) Parents must also think of themselves as teachers, with the aim of making their children, on or before age 18, financially independent enough not to live in their basement”

          I know a young man who graduated from high school and immediately landed a job in N Dakota in the oil fields. Some of what he did on that first job was driving locomotives and putting trains together that were hauling explosive and very flammable oil field products, including petroleum. He started out in life making around $100,000.00 a year. The reason he was able to pull this off is his job interview went extraordinarily well and his employer decided he was mature, responsible, and worth training. It was hard and they made him work 12 hour days. At the moment he’s 26 and owns his own oil services company and he’s doing very well.

          How could this have happened? The boy was home schooled or private schooled all his life, he grew up on a farm, and he never spent as much as one second in our utterly fucked up and destructive public education system. It shows.

          • Greg July 9, 2024 at 5:53 pm #

            Thanks for the great story. Let’s all do what we can to make this young man’s kind of story the rule in this country rather than the exception.

        • Blackbird July 9, 2024 at 5:17 pm #

          All good recommendations Greg. I think it all distills down to: self-sufficiency and community. And a big part of that is home-schooling. The few people I have known who were home-schooled were all far more intelligent and well-adjusted than their peers.

          This can work, as you point out, on a local level, especially in overlooked rural areas to which the cancer of centralized authoritarianism has not yet metastasized, but how long can those communities – if you can build one – hold out? And what power will they have to sway higher levels of authority?

          I think the best we can do is to attempt to weather the coming storm – at least for awhile – but we can’t prevent it. But those are just my discouraging words. Others sing more pleasant songs.

          • Greg July 9, 2024 at 6:00 pm #

            I get it, Blackbird. We try to come up with a best-odds strategy, which can still be very long odds. Let’s hope and pray that God has loaded the dice in our favor when we roll them.

          • Groundhog July 10, 2024 at 11:20 am #

            @ blackbird Home schooling vs. centralized authoritarian schooling. I have a couple of great great uncles who were “home schooled” in the small town they grew up in – but in the late 1800’s. This town also featured a small religious affiliated college, if you went to this school the odds were good you’d become a teacher or preacher. But this was 1800’s and before the time of compulsory education via the Prussian model. My uncles walked to school, but the schoolhouse was simply the home of a local woman who had a teaching degree from the local college. Her house had been remodeled to feature a large classroom, and the school was also her home. It was just a version of the old one room schoolhouse we’re all familiar with from old movies and historical photos.

            What’s so sad is people rolling their eyes and unable to explain why students back in the 1800’s were ahead of their public school educated peers today. They were ahead both in terms of maturity as well as scholastic achievement. Yet multiple grade levels were all working and learning in just one room. And this is precisely how in the Long Emergency the citizens of the USA will be educating children. The USA will be too poor and won’t have the physical resources to continue with public ed. Those giant school buildings will be repurposed or demolished. No funds will be available to maintain the buildings, let alone pay for teachers and staff. There will be no diesel fuel available for bussing children to schools. There will be no spare motor fuel or spare motor vehicles for moms to be hauling kids back and forth to giant mega schools. Instead, school will be happening in remodeled basements of homes in various neighborhoods. CHILDREN WILL WALK OR RIDE BICYCLES TO SCHOOL!!!! Some unemployed former school teachers will
            be setting up shop in their homes, and we’ll be back to the 1890’s and school will return to the way it was for my ancient relatives and ancestors.

        She has repeatedly given dates for the beginning of the Apocalypse. They go by and she gives new dates – as if nothing happened. As if she wasn’t wrong. She’s part of a Catholic prophecy cult.

        Some legitimate Catholic prophets have said there will be a great Warning given to the world. And an illumination of conscience, where all see themselves as they are. An inner warning to match to the outer, basically.

        • Groundhog July 9, 2024 at 8:27 pm #

          @ Jarek “Some legitimate Catholic prophets etc. etc.”

          So how would you rate father Malachi Martin? I first encountered him decades ago while Art Bell was interviewing him. Martin predicted a lot of the severe problems in the RCC that are manifesting now. The current crisis being discussed in many places is archbishop Vigano’s defiant stand against the pope who Vigano claims is a false and apostate pope.

          So there is a crisis of leadership and groups splintering off – both in the Vatican and in the White House.

There are people requesting MAID because they can’t pay their bills and the authorities think that is fine. They’ll be printing an invitation on the bottom of your utilities bill next: Options (1) contact your utilties provider to arrange a longer payment schedule or (2) eff off and die.

            While I don’t agree with assisted suicide in general, I have seen where someone is sick enough and, in enough pain, to want to end it before they run through their money and leave nothing for their children.
            The medical establishment does seem to be set up to suck all the money out of people as they cling to life dying.

          • Blackbird July 9, 2024 at 5:41 pm #

            I kind of agree with assisted suicide.

            I think it is cruel to force someone to die slowly – over the course of weeks or months – and in increasingly unbearable pain, with no chance of cure – because we “care so much for life”!.

            And it is cruel, if they decide they can’t go on, to force them to rely on their own inadequate means to depart this life – whatever pills they can get their hands on, a rope, a gun… Think of the determination needed – and the misery accumulated – to put a gun to your head, or strangle yourself. The victim should never have been pushed that far into a nightmare of darkness and pain.

            And if you want to be with them as they voluntarily take the off ramp, hold their hand as they take their last breath, you become a criminal, accessory to manslaughter for not preventing your dearly beloved from taking his own life.

            It is a sacred right to kill the inconvenient unborn, but to end your own life – with dignity and in peace – when it is no longer livable? Oh no! We can’t allow that.

    By Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild at CKGSB in Beijing on April 11, 2013

    John should love this:

    “I think we can only have sustainable economies if we have inclusive growth. To get there, I go right back to the founder of capitalism—Adam Smith. In the 18th century, Adam Smith believed that the collusion of government with powerful business interests exercising near-total control of the market was unethical and also unproductive. He conceived of capitalism as an economic system that was in opposition to the mercantilism of his day—what we refer to today as Crony Capitalism.

    He believed that markets that favor consumers over the privileged aristocrats and politicians would unleash huge productivity gains. This system could create wealth across the board, and would encourage discipline, moderation and order throughout society. He defined the wealth of a nation as the wealth of the people in that nation. Moreover, he believed that you could both break the yolk of poverty and remove the manipulation of aristocrats and mercantilists through capitalism.

    Crucial to Adam Smith’s concept of how markets needed to work was his understanding of how we work as human beings. Seventeen years before he wrote The Wealth of Nations, he wrote The Theory of Moral Sentiment. He was first and foremost a moral philosopher, more than he was an economist. Philosophy was his first love. Adam Smith believed not that business or mankind would be selfless, but that our vanity for our position in society would lead us to do the right thing. Because by doing the right thing we gain respect from the people around us, which he believed was the most important objective of people in society. For this reason, I was very happy to learn that all of you at this school are required to do hours of community service and that the humanities is part of what you are learning as you are also studying management and entrepreneurial skills. You might have watched a movie called Wall Street that portrays greed as good, and the objective of life as money, cars, houses, and wealth for wealth’s sake. Well, that is the wrong set of priorities and it does not lead to happiness.

    As most of you are Executive MBA students, I want to speak to you for a few minutes on our focus at the Henry Jackson Initiative on Inclusive Capitalism. Instead of naming and shaming bad behavior, we decided to try to identify pathways for business leaders: pathways that, for business reasons, create more inclusive growth.

    One pathway that we identified as very important is that business leaders require work forces that are educated for what their companies need. McKinsey did a study: the United States has 30 million jobs that cannot be filled because of a lack of people qualified for those jobs. Right now in America, in order to get accepted to Harvard, you have to study and be proficient in trigonometry. Are there any land surveyors in this room? No. That’s what trigonometry is for. Knowledge of probability, on the other hand is not required. However, probability and mathematical engineering skills are what are useful in a high-tech world. They’re not required in American higher education today. The McKinsey study also states that by 2030, there are going to be 85 million jobs that are not going to have people with the right skills. So we, as business leaders, need to step up and participate in educating the work force we need.

    On our website, you will see Rolls-Royce as one example of a company that is training its own work force. Twenty-five years ago, before anyone talked about corporate social responsibility, Rolls-Royce created an academy because they wanted their future leaders to be trained in all areas of the Rolls-Royce business, in quality control and in the values of Rolls-Royce. They offer training to fully-paid employees at the company, and now 25% of their top management are graduates of the Rolls-Royce academy.

    In conclusion, I would like to share with you my favorite statement on capitalism. It was made by Yuval Levin. He said “Clearly, the case for capitalism requires us to roll back policies that have distorted the market’s ability to produce this wealth and cultivate these virtues. Properly understood, the case for capitalism is not a case for license or for laissez faire. It is a case for national wealth as a moral good; for the interest of the mass of consumers as the guide of policy; for clear and uniform rules of competition imposed upon all; for letting markets set prices, letting buyers make choices, and letting producers experiment, innovate, and make what they think they can sell— all while protecting consumers and punishing abusers.

    Capitalism is in trouble today because we have grown forgetful of the case for it. It is an argument for individual freedom amid moral order, and for prosperity sustained by sympathy and discipline. It is an odd modern hybrid: a conservative case for the liberal society.”

    Lady Lynn, a Rothschild, is to be praised here, not pilloried

    Here’s a list to think about:

    List of the Top 10 Richest Families in the World
    1. Al Nahyan Family
    2. Walton Family
    3. Hermes Family
    4. Mars Family
    5. Al Thani Family
    6. Koch Family
    7. Al Saud Family
    8. Ambani Family
    9. Wertheimer Family
    10.Thompson Family


    Here lies the power, the wealth and the influence. No mention of the Rothschilds. Or Bezos or Gates.

    We know that the Rothschilds were bankers to the czars, financiers of imperial ambitions, and that William Thackeray said of Nathan Rothschild, ‘he was not king of the Jews but the Jew of kings.’ Then was then, now is now. But the anti-Semitic conspiracy theories still abound, mostly finding root in the exploits of the distant past.

    • OG July 8, 2024 at 10:18 pm #

      People don’t despise the Rothschilds for being Jewish. People despise the Rothschilds for all the slavery and wars that they subject us to.

      Calling people opposed to the Rothschilds “anti-Semitic conspiracy theor[ists]” is uninformed and lazy.

      Just because the Rothschilds are conspicuously absent from your list hardly means that they are not the richest and most powerful family on earth.

      • tucsonspur July 9, 2024 at 5:48 am #

        Please cite the slavery and the wars that they subjected us to.

        Do you mean us as in the US?

        In the 1800’s, the Rothschilds supported abolition and agreed to arrange funding for reparations to the slave owners. Many wealthy owners received huge payouts. Slavery abolition act of 1833 in Britain.

        I don’t know if they profited from US slavery by doing business with the South.

      They don’t produce things, they produce money. Thus they trump families that produce mere things.

      If you spend your whole life trying for profit, you will become a greed head. The above idealism simply falls by the boards. There’s money to be made! If you don’t adopt this mentality, you won’t be one of the big families – nor work for them.

      Smith actually believe the system would keep itself moral! An invisible hand. What a jackoff.

      • tucsonspur July 9, 2024 at 3:20 am #

        Smith may have been too idealistic, too full of ‘moral sentiment’. I wouldn’t call him a ‘jackoff’, that’s too crude and just misses the mark. His ‘wishful’ description of a well working capitalistic system is right on and shouldn’t be so callously dismissed.

        “If you spend your whole life trying for profit, you will become a greed head.”

        Not necessarily. Profit can be a good thing, leading to growth, more jobs, charitable donations, etc.

        Amazon didn’t turn a profit for many years, it now does so, and high revenues continue. Initially, investors believed not so much in profit but in the promise of growth and revenue.

        Okay, so they don’t pay much in taxes (0 at times?) and they don’t pay dividends, but they employed about 1.6 million people worldwide in 2021, without making fantastic profits, but the profit trend is upward.

        Should one try for a loss, or just to break even, rather than a profit?

        No, greed is never good, but profit can be.

      • JohnAZ July 9, 2024 at 10:17 am #

        You are right about finance, Jarek, it destroys capitalism. It also makes it easy for the government to manipulate the economy as the current basis for the financial system if the US Treasury. (Not for long!)

        Money for money’s sake is not the ultimate though. How much money does someone need? It is an avenue to power. The rich compete against each other for power in the marketplace. A healthy economy will have new faces continuously showing up, and not the stagnation we have now. A company president I knew told me that an entrepenuer should fail at times because that is their learning curve. Their goal should be to hit it once to earn their keep.

        The system corrupts itself, same as the government, greed and more, power acquisition. The government just provides the focus to that corruption. Like the Constitution, Smith believed that an unrestrained marketplace would provide a division of power where smaller upcoming companies would make ongoing competition for the ‘Old Guard”. I think back to the late 1800’s where the Barons took over. We have been fighting the corporations ever since. Our best weapon is innovation and aggressiveness. If all the corporations and companies were headed by Elon Musk types and his aggressiveness, we would not have to worry about crony capitalism.

        Jarek, maybe the enemy of that necessary aggressiveness is security. People want jobs that last forever. Having a Silicon Valley of the 80’s, where getting another job after a RIF meant going to the mall, would make things easier. All the work reduction and off-shoring the government taxes have done, AI, speech recognition have made the workplace a very insecure place. People have shown their willingness to give up their liberty for security, so giving up entrepeneuership follows.

        Capitalism – entrepeneuership = socialism, whatever form you want.

        • Jarek July 9, 2024 at 1:19 pm #

          Thanks, but no. Not just banking. Even productive work expanded endlessly out of personal lust for success. Careerism in other words. In the old days, women and kids never getting to see their husband and father. But if he wasn’t like that, would she have married him?

          Now? Both sexes doing it. Marriage is kaput because of this and even more so because of the feminist divorce industrial complex.

          So great people don’t want to live like that and prefer security. Vegetables? Maybe. Or maybe they’re incredibly creative in other areas and just don’t want to worry about money all the time. In any case, those with money considered everyone else as losers. Aristocracy has taken a different form, an incredibly destructive one that most everyone accepts.

    Well, ladies and germs;

    By this time next Monday, we will know who Trump’s pick for VP will be. The pick has always been based on politics, demographics, and the way the winds of culture are blowing…in effect, what the pick will bring to the table the most votes in strategically important areas.

    My fervent choice would be the one that would unite 7-11 owners as a voting block.

    Yeah, Rammin; Sammy Ramaswamy would be my choice on emotion alone. He develops verbally the Trump policies in a brilliant, concise manner, he is personable, young, and knows more about the realpolitik of American history and governance than any other politician I have ever experienced. I just like him.

    But sadly he probably does not bring enough to the ticket to make the cut.

    • Ron Anselmo July 9, 2024 at 3:02 am #

      Yeah, that, and there’s only about 13,000 7-Eleven’s.

      • Blackbird July 9, 2024 at 5:58 pm #

        But it’s not just 7-Elevens, they’ve bought up lots of “mom ‘n’ pop” liquor stores too – even way up here. And they’re constantly expanding their range.

        In the end, it doesn’t matter “who Trump picks” or who is picked for him. It will be another nobody. Can’t let Trump be outshined.

        If Trump were serious, he would choose RFK jr., or Tulsi Gabbard. Not that either of them could ever turn anything around – even if they wanted to. However they talk the talk better than anyone else. But Trump isn’t serious, he is doing as he is told.

        • Ron Anselmo July 10, 2024 at 12:27 pm #

          Bird – agree, regarding Tulsi. When they’re not at the Honky Chateau (way overdue props to you – hysterical, as in hilarious), “working”, I’d much rather see more of Tulsi surfing, and less of Orange Jesus playing golf.

          • Blackbird July 10, 2024 at 5:11 pm #

            Everybody would rather see Tulsi surfing than the Golden Golem golfing. Therefore, Tulsi will not be his running mate.

    OG et al

    I read an article yesterday about a study of Covid victims both alive and post-Mortem. Two groups, a control with no Covid history and no vaxx is being compared to folks with Covid in their history. The study started in 2020.


    The group with the covid history had recurrent attacks of covid symptoms. They were thoroughly worked up on a periodic basis looking for a residual of covid that might explain Long Covid.

    And they found it, localized areas of viable virus entrapped in various areas of the body, with the gut being number one. I was interested with what happened with the wife and I last fall, the periodic cough and mucus production in our throats. Sure enough, the upper pharynx is one of the spots.

    I will send the source info.

    IMHO, this may finally open the can of worms necessary to getting Covid understood. Also, there is an indication that the RNA and possibly the spike protein may also contribute and be preserved over time.

    The latter could definitely, finally put a finger on the vaxx and hopefully stop mRNA for good.

    • Yirgach July 8, 2024 at 8:27 pm #


      Don’t forget its not RNA but mRNA, which is modified RNA which is foreign to your body which triggers an immune response when it is detected as a foreign agent by your body’s immune system.

      All the myocarditis and “died suddenly” deaths are due to this.
      Just the tip of the iceberg…

      • JohnAZ July 8, 2024 at 8:36 pm #

        Pls read the article before espousing opinions

        The RNA in this case is from the original virus infection, not mRNA. And possibly also from the vaxx to. Plus it may be the s protein that themRNA makes that triggers the inflammation recurrences. I do not believe it is one source, but a common denominator is not the mRNA but the s protein it produces. Remember it is the s protein that triggers the immune response from both the disease and the Vaxx mRNA.

        Anyway, it is on google

        “Visionary” Study Finds Inflammation, Evidence of Covid Virus Years after Infection

        • Yirgach July 9, 2024 at 11:51 am #

          There’s nothing “visionary” about the study, it glosses over the fact that people who were treated with mRNA gene therapy produce the spike proteins FROM the mRNA which concentrate in the reproductive organs and for those who lose the injection lottery, the heart muscle. It’s pay-walled so you can’t look at their data or methodology. I’ll stick with experienced independents like immunologist Geert Vanden Bossche or statisticians like Ed Dowd or Steve Kircsch who have all reached the same conclusions but by different paths.

          Because these proteins are not recognized by the innate immune system, they are considered foreign and are attacked. The mRNA has been known to transcribe into the DNA which was not supposed to happen.

          This is the reason why mRNA exposure leads to repeat infections and immune system failures.

          • JohnAZ July 9, 2024 at 5:00 pm #

            It is not just the mRNA, it is the RNA from the virus itself. When they do autopsies and follow up scans months later, the RNA from both is still “alive” in the mentioned areas, especially the gut. I agree with you, the study I saw was that liver cells are reverse transcripted to modify the DNA. Does this make a s protein factory? Will we ever know? IMHO, it is the s protein on the virus AND the s protein that is produced by the mRNA and maybe the altered DNA cells that causes the inflammation. Remember the intense lung inflammation in the early stages, 2020, of the disease, before the vaxx was even introduced. That was the virus s protein.

            As the Vaxx result is s protein, IMHO, it is an accumulative adder to the s protein load the body carries. The most important part of this study is the proof that RNA and s proteins accumulate and do not go away as the model says.

            One more, I have always said that a major deficit of the vaxx was its IM injection getting the mRNA into the bloodstream which allows it to go anywhere in the body. IMHO, the mRNA model that says it only affects the muscle into which it is injected is bullshit.

          • Blackbird July 9, 2024 at 6:13 pm #

            We should be careful to distinguish between mRNA – messenger RNA – which is produced naturally by the body and is vital for the maintenance of life, and modified RNA which we have managed to survive without since the beginning of time.

            Pfizer and Co. have played a mindfuck on us by calling their lab-engineered monstrosity “mRNA”. “It’s natural!” Yeah, natural like Frankenstein’s lab accident.

            “Truth in Labeling” should require Big Pharma to market their genetic manipulation product as “modified RNA” which might make part of the population – ok, probably just 1 or 2% – think twice before taking the Jab. But of course Big Pharma makes the rules, they don’t follow them.

          • Yirgach July 9, 2024 at 7:06 pm #

            Thanks JAZ,

            It is confusing enough for the researchers to deal with a Corona Virus they are already aware of besides a synthetic one supplied by mRNA used by the Pharma.

            It has made a protein factory by transcribing itself into your DNA as it is meant to do, which was the whole point of using mRNA to get into the cell nucleus.

            The real problem with Pfizer, Moderna, etc is the drugs were released under an Experimental license which allows them to bypass the normal multi-decadel testing cycle.

            Anyone familiar with drug development has recognized the problem as it unfolds. Unfortunately for most people who are not aware of the testing process they succumbed to the “OK and effective” BS and have continued to swallow the whole enchilada to this day.

            They are currently finding out what immune system destruction means the hard way.

          • Yirgach July 11, 2024 at 5:15 pm #

            in case some of you haven’t realized it yet, the entire paradigm of mRNA vs mod-nRNA is flawed and extremely dangerous.

            Big Pharma is salivating over mRNA vaccines for multiple diseases using the mod-RNA delivery system which has been shown to not only cause adverse immune response all over the body but actually transposes into the human DNA!

            Why this is continuing is absolutely unbelievable.

            The results were first seen in the 40% increase in Myocarditis in males as well as the similar increase in stillbirths during the same time period.

    • OG July 8, 2024 at 10:50 pm #

      JAZ, until you understand that Fauci and those other evil fucks planned to shutdown the world with a virus, kill multitudes with ridonky financial incentive mal protocols [Remdesiver, intubation and starvation] to whip up fear and misery and poison as many people as their depop agenda requires, you can read about s proteins until the cows come home (presumedly with bird flu) and never understand the magnitude and scope of this crime.

      2020-22 was bat shit crazy. Remember?

      They met and game-planned it. Then they did. Globally!

      • JohnAZ July 9, 2024 at 12:04 am #

        Well, OG, while you cannot resist repeating all your conspiracy BS that has never been proved and never will be with the government in control of everything, I will be watching for any information that may prove what the real truth is, what may be able to be done about it, and anything to prove what Fauci’s Mob did to develop Covid and its Vaxx. Read the GD article.

        • OG July 9, 2024 at 12:14 pm #

          No. I’m not going to go search Google for some bull shit article that pretends that this was not the biggest crime in human history.

          It sure as Hell isn’t my conspiracy, JAZ. I’m merely pointing out their blatantly obvious conspiracy.

          Do you really, honestly think that it was just some impossibly-weird coincidence that they hosted their Agenda 201 event in the Fall of 2019 and then, lo and behold, had it strangely go live (and exactly like they had just war-gamed it) merely a handful of months later (in the Spring of 2020)?

          Talk about sheep.

          Wanna buy a bridge?

          God gave you a brain to use, JAZ … but, instead, you went out and got repeatedly jabbed!

          And then, instead of trying to learn from the people that got it right, you call them names?

          “You can’t fix stupid.”

          The financial incentives for COVID-19 protocols in hospital of Remdesiver, intubate and starve is not some wonky “conspiracy theory.” It really happened and hundreds of thousands of innocent Americans died thusly to up the hysteria.

          These are not “conspiracy theories,” JAZ. These are undeniable facts.

          • JohnAZ July 9, 2024 at 5:12 pm #

            Simple OG there are NO undeniable facts, the government will not fund the effort to do adequate studies to find out much of anything. They will not admit they did wrong.

            Your facts are people’s opinions of what could be going on. They still do not know for example why heart tissue is being damaged which is the only adverse effect that TPTB have acknowledged.

            Just once, the original OG, once the data started coming in my family stopped.

            Do you get off on calling people names? That behavior was supposed to stop in grade school, I think.

            Did you get Covid? I did, and it was different than anything I had had before. If you didn’t, good for you, but it means you have no idea what you are talking about.

            My daughter has autoimmune disorder probably from Covid plus the Vaxx. A friend may have terminal autoimmune disorder from the same.

            You keep coming up with your undeniable facts that are not. Try keeping up with the latest data being issued, it might keep you apprised of the facts, the few that exist.

          • OG July 9, 2024 at 5:59 pm #

            there are NO undeniable facts

            That is stupid-squared, JAZ. -Cubed, even.

            Of course there are books and books and books of undeniable facts. Smarten up.

            Hospitals were financially incentived big-time to:

            a) Get a positive COVID test
            b) Put the otherwise healthy victim on Remdesiver
            c) Intubate them
            d) Starve them
            e) Have them die a long, painful death in isolation with no family contact

            These paid-for murders were then used to scream death counts in the MSM to frighten sheep into willingly taking their poison.

            Those are undeniable facts, JAZ, because the truth matters. The truth is undeniable.

            Now you’re poisoned and you know that they intentionally poisoned you yet you still keep eating their bull shit! May God drop the scales from your eyes.

    • Paula D July 9, 2024 at 1:08 pm #

      They have decided on “long covid” to explain vax injuries, it is clear to me.
      I get a daily medical digest by email, and have for years.

      It used to be varied, as a digest should be, ranging from diabetes to gallbladder disease to foot funguses.

      When covid started it was All Covid, All The Time.

      When the vax campaign started, it was All Injections, (Safe and Effective), All The Time.

      And now they have just started the “long covid” campaign.
      The whole “Video games, gardening, sun spots, animal ownership, etc. causes heart disease and sudden death” campaign was not working.
      All but the stupidest laughed at each new “scientific study” they touted.

      So now, they are switching the narrative to long covid. Oh, and by the way, if you have these symptoms, but you never had covid?

      You DID have covid! Yes, indeed, what you had was “asymptomatic” covid, and what you have now is long covid from your asymptomatic covid.

      Covers everyone. Easy, peasy.

      Don’t fall for it.

    Here is reality:

    The 2024 Democrat Party a complete evil pile of shit. All of it. Every candidate. The Democrat Party machine will “flush” any actually honest candidate that doesn’t toe the Communist/Socialist/Fascist Democrat Party line right down the ol’ crapper. So, whether Biden the Traitor stays in the 2024 Presidential race or not is immaterial. If Turd Biden gets dumped, the Democrats will just nominate another turd to replace him. Same sewer pond, different turd. So, voting for any Democrat is just voting for a pile of shit who will continue wrecking the U.S.

    All of the hand-wringing by the Democrat elite has nothing to do with any desire to fix what they have broken in this country, it’s about the fact that their puppet President outed himself as a demented, insane narcissist and the public is figuring out that that the rest of the Party and their propaganda lackeys in the media have been hiding it since before the 2020 election. The Democrat elite is now scared shitless that, if Trump and the Republicans win in 2024, a goodly number of the Democrat scum elite may legitimately be facing criminal charges for everything from election fraud to outright treason. When the Democrat scum bleat that Trump will take revenge on them what they really mean is that they fear that Trump will actually enforce the Laws justly, and those Democrat miscreants will get just what they have so richly deserved for years–jail time, lots of it.

    • JohnAZ July 9, 2024 at 12:15 am #

      You are correct, but only part way.

      Trump knows what is going on, and he is smarter than all these Asshats put together. They fear him because he knows where the closets are and what skeletons are in them.

      Last time, he tried to deal with the structure to get his reforms. It did not work. This time he will rip these SOBs a new set of assholes.

      Why the hell do you think they are throwing everything but the kitchen sink at him, for now short of assassination? Maybe because they are scared shitless of him, and what he is going to do to them.

      Hopefully!!!!!!!!!!! The entire Biden Mob deserve lifetime terms in Rikers.

    I love when you do this format, Mr. K!! It feels like a little play is happening. But it really does seem like some sort of psychological operation is happening too. Apparently Joe is having a big boy press conference on Thursday. KJP and that Kirby man literally called it a big boy press conference and both of them said it with a little laugh. So this is something that is being orchestrated at every level. Maybe they are making a big joke out of it all because they know we aren’t even going to have an election? Jake Tapper is also acting very suspicious these days talking about how the elites didn’t see what the public has been seeing with Joe’s condition because basically the elites live in a bubble. So there is some really weird stuff happening. They’re disclosing through little info drops and innuendos. I feel like hundreds of years are about to happen in a few weeks. Don’t put on your seatbelt :0).

        The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many died from the water, because it was made bitter.

        I watched while he ripped off the sixth seal: a bone-jarring earthquake, sun turned black as ink, moon all bloody, stars falling out of the sky like figs shaken from a tree in a high wind, sky snapped shut like a book, islands and mountains sliding this way and that. And then pandemonium, everyone and his dog running for cover—kings, princes, generals, rich and strong, along with every commoner, slave or free. They hid in mountain caves and rocky dens, calling out to mountains and rocks, “Refuge! Hide us from the One Seated on the Throne and the wrath of the Lamb! The great Day of their wrath has come—who can stand it?”

    What archetypes are we working though this week. If you are feeling a bit energetically overwhelmed and sort of chaotic, depressed, or like you are losing faith or struggling with purpose then you may be dealing with the grand air trine of Black Moon Lilith, Sedna, and Pluto? Basically the Moon, Sedna, and Pluto have aligned in a perfect triangle within the air signs. I’m not super schooled in the charts and explanations but you can look it up for more technical detail. But this alignment should persist through July 25. And these are really major archetypes particularly within the divine and dark feminine. So these are some of the energies working through in the background right now and are thus contributing to our collective experiences. I will probably address each of these archetypes this week but i’m super tired rigth now. Nighty nite xoxo

        Good night Mrs. Anselmo, wherever you are…

        • Ron Anselmo July 10, 2024 at 1:14 pm #

          Bird – she’s back from a recent dive trip to the island of Dominica. The outfit she dove with didn’t provide depth gauges. She wasn’t happy – an entirely volcanic island, steep drops to the blue water abyss.

          She’s looking for a Divemaster partner to open a small dive shop there. Talk about a bug-out island/country – check it out. Great place – although, third world – great people, healthy, locally grown food. Beautiful, but very simple way of life.

          We got minimally sideswiped by Hurricane Beryl, which passed south and ran over Barbados. It disrupted Caribbean Island air traffic and we had to stay an additional three days to get a flight out. Very interesting juxtaposition in storm preparation between Dominicans and US Citizens.

          Dominicans: fearless, no panic, self-reliant, knowing the Government is not coming to save them, independent, preparation is matter-of-fact, just another day.

          US Citizens: fearful, panicked, no thought of self-reliance, thinking the Government is coming to save them, dependent, preparation is hair-on-fire, panic buying toilet paper(?).

          No tv’s, so no whipped-up hysteria. They’re a stoic bunch, nice to see. They just put their heads down, put the blinders on, and do what needs to be done.

          Travelling international, I always travel with a little silver – which in a pinch, may get you where you need to go. Made it through three separate customs searches.

          Obviously, there are reportable currency thresholds – I had $800 face value – about $4800 intrinsic value – well under the “currency” thresholds, so nothing they could do.

          Do some due diligence on the island. I am for sure. May go back sooner than later – longer term, if you know what I mean.

          • Ron Anselmo July 10, 2024 at 1:20 pm #

            If we’re destined to go to an island – it’s better than Gitmo! And voluntary! Check it out, but do it soon.

          • Blackbird July 10, 2024 at 5:28 pm #

            Mrs. Anselmo would choose Dominica. Been studying it myself lately.
            One of the best locations for whale research (my newly rediscovered scientific passion) – especially sperm whales – in the world.

            I would imagine Bonaire would be another of her favorites – great nearshore diving. (I’ve never been to either island by the way.) Had a great opportunity to go to Bonaire – 19 years ago – with an intern from work and her family, all I had to cover was my airfare. Sadly, I chose responsibility… Ten years later I sacrificed a month-long trip to France for the same stupid reason. Never again! (Not that I’ll ever have the opportunity again.)

            Mrs. A. doesn’t have a Suunto dive computer? Or did she send it in to get the battery changed (yes, even Suunto has gone bad…) and didn’t get it back in time?

          • Ron Anselmo July 11, 2024 at 6:22 pm #

            Bird – you’re exactly – even suspiciously – correct. Have you been diving around my reef?

            She dove Dominica 25 years ago, and still loves it. She dove Bonaire a few times, and it’s still a favorite. Actually, I think she had some underwater pictures from Bonaire published in Alert Diver Magazine.

            She has her own dive computer, but this recent trip was more of a hiking focus, so she didn’t take her personal gear along. Interesting aside that I didn’t know, but you probably do.

            She’s a PADI member, as you may be, and apparently if you’re a Divemaster, on a dive trip with multiple divers, and it goes sideways and you don’t render aid, you can be legally liable, even though you’re not in the employ of the dive company, just a paying client diver like all the rest.

            We went on a near-shore fishing charter, and the guys on the boat said they also do a whale watching run, and that whales are very common along their coast.

            In closing, stop being so f**king responsible, would you?! Be more like me!

          • Blackbird July 11, 2024 at 8:21 pm #

            Ron, if you’re still here at this late hour… In regard to responsibility, I’m chukkin’ it out the window like a 3/4 empty can of Sweetwater Hazy IPA with the Sheriff on my tail.

            In regard to divemaster stuff, I never finished my Divemaster certification – kinda like my Master’s degree which was lost at sea about the same time. But… I’ve always played jr. (ok, maybe sr.) dive guide on my recreational trips. Always playing sheepdog to those irresponsible tourists. Always last on the boat – to make sure everyone else got on. It never bothered me, it’s one of those things you just do when you have reached that level – certified or not. But yeah, once a Divemaster, always a Divemaster.

            There’s a good video about sperm whales and Dominica – by some totally uneducated but totally inspired guy – on YouTube. Then watch some good videos about consciousness and acoustics – and the electromagnetic field. Then let’s discuss where we want to build our whale communication/consciousness-raising retreat on Dominica. (Ever read John C. Lilly? Right idea, wrong track – in my opinion.) I’m already working on the architecture, still remote-viewing the best location…

            Then remind Mrs. Anselmo – as if she doesn’t know already – never leave without your Suunto!

          • Ron Anselmo July 12, 2024 at 12:19 am #

            Bird – I’ll check out the whale video, and the consciousness/acoustic/EMF stuff sounds even better. It’ll take me a little time; I have a long list of irresponsibility’s I have to attend to first, you understand.

            On architecture, check out the “Ti Kai”, it’s the native island house structure – form follows function – designed for passive cooling, cross-ventilation and hurricane resistance – basically handmade from local timber.

            Saw an interesting book in the Dominica airport, “Still Standing: The Ti Kais of Dominica”, which had a great history of the architecture and design. Thirty-five dollars there, twenty-two at Barnes & Noble, so I may buy it. Read about half at the airport.

            Good on you for policing up the divers. It’s a great pastime, but as you know, can be dangerous if not taken seriously.

            The diving sucks here around STA, but the fishing bite is getting hot in the next two months, with the fall bait run. Stop being such a Michigander and come back down to your old haunts.

    How bad can things be?

    It was announced yesterday that the head basketball coach at our State University signed a 5 year, $50 million contract. And a town just south of here, population about 25 thousand, listed salaries of their employees; 155 of them are paid over $100,000 per year. So make sure you get that quarterly income tax payment in, and your property taxes are up to date suckers, local and state govt have a payroll to make. Don’t like it? Move? If you want to make bank, get a govt job.Of course you have to know somebody to get one.

She says the field worker/analysts have not been in the office for 4 years. Absolute .Insanity.Good work if you can get it I guess

      • Blackbird July 9, 2024 at 6:36 pm #

        But those offices are still being maintained – lights, “climate control”, “water-saving faucets*”, etc., as if they are fully-staffed. I work in one – pretty much by myself…

        *In one restroom, one “water-saving faucet” runs for half a minute after you put your hands under it. (The other is broken.) I can hear it still running as I’m walking away down the hall. In another restroom, the “water-saving faucet” stops if you move your hand just a little bit in the wrong direction – and won’t restart for half a minute. (The other is broken.) So you grab extra paper towels to wipe the soap off your hands. This, in the “most energy-efficient” office building in the state…

    Must be one huge file.

    Hackers now have access to a set of 10 billion passwords
    The passwords are in a text file that was posted online on July 4
    Researchers say they’ve uncovered a text file containing nearly 10 billion unique passwords, all stored in plain text, TechRadar reported. While a serious development, it seems that the passwords have been gathered together from various attacks and leaks over the last 20 years.

    “In its essence, the RockYou2024 leak is a compilation of real-world passwords used by individuals all over the world,” the researchers said, adding that it could lead to an increase in attempts by hackers to access users’ accounts.

    The incident is a reminder to review your password practices and to never use the same one for multiple services …

      Ben, I meant to ask you, when you deploy on a US Navy ship as a civilian, where are your quarters? Do you have to stand watches, also do you pay for your meals like officers do?

      • JohnAZ July 9, 2024 at 10:20 am #

        They stay in Officer country, do not stand watches, and I do not know about meals. The ones I saw were tech reps from sonar mfgs.

      • benr July 9, 2024 at 1:25 pm #

        Yes, the meals are around $17 a day we pay up front and get an extra $20 a day for food and incidentals.
        At the moment I have a three-person stateroom on the 03 level between two catapults.
        Probably the nosiest place on the ship.
        I have been stuck in gen pop with low level enlisted, berthed in cpo overflow and on the Makin Island put in Marine forward berthing which was a cattle car experience.
        Living conditions are often uncomfortable and at times somewhat difficult to deal with.
        The pay underway is adequate in fact I wish it was that much every paycheck.
        As JAZ said we don’t have watches unless our gear is broken then its work till its fixed.
        No GQ station but we do have to muster for man overboard drills when they remember we are riding the ship.

Rode the diesel sub and french frigate for two days was volentold to do so.
            The French tried to kill me with alcohol in Montevideo Uruguay.
            At one point in their on-boat bar I had ten shots of crown royal lined up and was told it’s an insult to not drink them even worse they would not let me buy them drinks.

          Do you eat as well as the crew on NOAA vessels?

          Surf ‘n’ Turf on Fridays – Sirloin and king crab, or porterhouse and lobster. Prime rib at least once per week. Chocolate mousse. Designer coffee. They won’t leave port if their shopping list isn’t completely filled – it’s in their contract. The Captain of the R/V [redacted] bragged to me that they once ran out of grapes and had more flown out by helicopter.

          While I’ll admit that I did enjoy the food, the extravagance didn’t impress me. Kind of like autoworkers bragging about getting paid to play euchre.

          Deepwater Horizon was the best thing that ever happened to me, financially.

    This is the real reason Joe isn’t dropping out. His wife and son Hunter (along with the grandkids, reportedly) have pressured him to continue running.

      Rob Reiner, Michael Moore, and other leftists are correct: Joe Biden should resign, right now. It’s not about him serving 4 more years, he’s not competent to serve four more days as President. That said, the best thing for Trump is a race against Joe Biden, so Biden’s refusal to step down may be helping him.

    Pillowcase Murders is a three-part documentary currently streaming on Paramount + that tells the story of Billy Chemirmir, a Black man who murdered more than 20 elderly white people in the Dallas, Texas, area from 2016 to 2018.

    His murders all followed the same pattern: He would stalk a victim, get her (all but one were female) to open her front door, get inside the home, and smother his victim with a pillow. Then he would steal any jewelry he could find.

      As a kid I lived on a street in Hollywood between Sunset and Hollywood blvd.

      The 90 something year old lady across the street opened her front door to two black men who beat and raped her.
      Nicest old lady they shattered one of her legs when they kicked the door open and when done with her left her bleeding and broken with her front door wide open.
      She survived the attack but if memory serves, she got pneumonia and eventually passed away from that.

        When I was about 14, some kids who could have been Obama’s sons, if he had sons, vandalized our park, cutting down the basketball nets, knocking the fixture off the water fountain, spray-painting everything, etc. A couple of us walked up on them doing it and chased them across the road and back to the filthy shithole from whence they came. A couple days later they came back and hit a 7 year old white kid in the face with a brick, knocking out several of his teeth. Its in their nature.

    The curtain is no longer concealing the rot in DC, but this time it is not being drawn, but ripped down.

    Macgregor has basically exposed the residents as being a bunch of grifters.

    Colonel Douglas Macgregor: Stephen Gardner 7/3/2024. It’s Beyond Our Worst Fears

    My sense is that all the news, every option, and every action is ultimately a setup for failure. That which comes to mind is Dalio’s discussion about various factions vying for power in China during empire transition periods.

    Perhaps only a few months ago, it looked to me like the only viable option was the UN 2030 Agenda, with “Joe Biden” presiding over the demolition phase, and passing power to the globalists to usher in the Build Back Better phase.

    Well, the war fronts have been a failure, and the citizens of the world aren’t buying that which their globalist leaders are selling. So, it has become obvious that change is inevitable, and the mad dash to grab power is on.

    My hope is that Project 2025 will amount to a viable option to counter the 2030 Agenda. It appears to be a realistic, reasonable set of proposals, put forth in a professional manner.

    Comments like “Joe Biden” losing young voters (I’d suggest that no one wants to fight in his wars), black voters having to acknowledge that their economic situation was better under Trump (but they are still not ready to ditch Biden), etc., reveal that the Globalist plan may be in trouble.

    One of my main criticisms has been that there has not been a mainstream discussion about the 2030 Agenda, but it is being implemented in a deceitful manner by “Joe Biden” and his G-7 buddies..

    JohnAZ, you and others have wanted a discussion about Project 2025, what is your take?

        As I posted above,

      • TPTB-USA July 9, 2024 at 4:52 pm #

        Perhaps Project 2025 is merely the conservative equivalent of the CFR?

        “The same applies to the comment by Hillary Clinton, who, while secretary of state, admitted at the CFR’s new Washington, D.C., office that she had been many times to the organization’s “mothership” in New York, but that the new office was much more conveniently located. “We get a lot of advice from the Council,” she claimed, “so, this will mean I won’t have as far to go to be told what we should be doing, and how we should think about the future.” (Emphasis added.)”

            “CFR Running the Executive Branch — Again

            Kerry is not the only CFR member to be appointed to the Biden administration. In fact, Joe Biden’s Cabinet and higher echelon “public servants” choir are beginning to look like the CFR White House stables of old. As the tables on pages 24-27 show, the Council has, over the decades, gained a lock hold on the Executive Branch of our federal government. From FDR through Obama — through both Republican and Democrat administrations — the CFR has functioned as our “Invisible Government,” as constitutionalist author and former FBI agent Dan Smoot called it in his 1962 book of that title, one of the earliest critiques of the Council. From Secretary of State An-tony Blinken, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo, and Director of the CIA William J. Burns, to White House Press Secretary Jennifer Psaki (and many more — see page 17), Joe Biden — or whoever is overseeing him — has stuffed the upper management of our government with the usual CFR retreads. And there are yet many important vacancies to be filled, many of which undoubtedly also will go to Pratt House camp followers.

            Why is it not a concern — or even a news story or topic of discussion — that a semi-secret club of uber-powerful individuals such as the Council on Foreign Relations has attained a virtual monopoly on the running of our nation? The CFR, with an exclusive membership numbering a little more than 5,000, serves as a revolving-door placement service that rotates its people from government “service” into top slots in the corporate, philanthropic, media, academic, and think-tank worlds, and then back into government stints as “public servants.””


            If Trump should extract CFR members from government, does that jeopardize the capstone?

            Does BRICS jeopardize the capstone?

    “Conspiracy theory” is no different from “Poopy head.”

    Like children, they call someone a name and then they can smugly ignore all that that person says. Facts and truth be damned.

    “You’re a big poopy head!”

    People in power have always conspired. History is nothing more than a chronic series of conspiracies and reactions to conspiracies.

    Did you think that, somehow, people in power recently stopped conspiring? If so, why, do you think, did they do that when conspiring had always served them so well?

          United Airlines Boeing Jet Loses Wheel Seconds After Takeoff From LAX

          Looks like Boeing is getting their shit pushed in as of late.

          A wheel has fallen off a United Airlines Boeing 757-200 just moments after takeoff.

          On Monday, United confirmed in a statement that a wheel fell off the jet as Flight 1001 departed Los Angeles International Airport around 7 a.m. local time on its way to Denver.

          About three hours later, the aircraft safely landed in Denver with no injuries sustained by any of the 174 passengers or seven crew members on board.

          According to a United representative, the wheel was eventually discovered in Los Angeles, and the company is looking into what caused the accident. It was not immediately clear if it resulted in any harm on the ground.

          “The wheel has been recovered in Los Angeles, and we are investigating what caused this event,” the statement said.

          The incident comes after a similar one that occurred in March when a Boeing 777-200 carrying 249 people lost a wheel shortly after takeoff from San Francisco on its way to Osaka, Japan.

          After being rerouted to LAX, the aircraft in March had made a safe and injury-free landing there. However, the wheel caused serious damage to cars parked in the airport parking lot.

          Was the crew working on this aircraft in a state where marijuana is legal?
          Drug test all around.

            Don’t worry about Boeing. Apparently they hold ‘Pride’ celebrations on the shop floor as a regular course of events, and not only in Pride Month either, but all year long. Every month is Pride Month at Boeing.

            Boeing is also big on creating ‘All Women & ‘All Minority’ project teams in their quest to meet Federal labor DEI requirements. We are seeing the results.

          • OG July 9, 2024 at 3:57 pm #

            If it’s legal, why test to see if people are enjoying a legal substance? Positive or negative … what’s the diff?

          • JohnAZ July 9, 2024 at 4:16 pm #

            Just like wildfires, why are so many “accidents” happening all at once?

            Why is Boeing the target only?

            Conspiracies usually have a reason to start and most end up being true.

            It worries me that we are dropping the average aptitude in this country every time an immigrant crosses. In these cases, DEI may be lethal.

            I agree with the drugs theory.

          • OG July 9, 2024 at 5:06 pm #

            What drugs “theory,” JAZ? benr suggested that the airline mechanics be tested for use of a legal substance. What would be the point? So a mechanic tests positive for the use of a legal substance … then what?

            Talking of planes and their problems, Mark Crispin Millier (who sends out a ‘died suddenly’ email to his subscribers every week) sent an email about plane crashes last month. Apparently it was raining planes in the US.


            “Plane veers off runway at Newark Airport, grounding flights; crop dusting plane crashes into truck in CA; pilot dead after crashing into MA river; 2 killed after plane crashes into CO trailer park.
            It’s been RAINING PLANES this month—another trend that we must track, since “our free press” isn’t doing it, even though it surely is NOT NORMAL”

            I sent the link to five Guardian journalists whom I periodically harrass. I thought if we can’t get to their consciences, we might as well go for their nerves, since they probably still fly.

            Hey Mensa boy what happens if you show up to work after drinking a few.
            Alcohol is legal but if you break something, cause an injury or get in an accident on the job you will be terminated if found to be under the influence.
            THC is a measurable intoxicant and contrary to popular opinion they can’t really tell if you indulged ten minutes ago or yesterday.
            Wake and bakers have a larger thc load in their systems and are often VERY forgetful.
            Legal but unlawful to drive under the influence….but dude its LEeeeeeeeguuuuul.

            Try harder or stop drinking the bong water.

          • OG July 9, 2024 at 5:45 pm #

            THC is a measurable intoxicant and contrary to popular opinion they can’t really tell if you indulged ten minutes ago or yesterday.

            That’s the problem (or did you goof up what you typed)? Did you actually mean:

            THC is a measurable intoxicant and contrary to popular opinion they can‘t really tell if you indulged ten minutes ago or yesterday.

            If that’s the case, we’re dealing with some serious irony, ya stoner.

            If you didn’t goof it up, are you saying that you “think” that airline mechanics cannot consume legal THC ever?

            You are some piece of work, benr. You draw a BIG paycheque from the very people that you despise. Regardless, you take their money and defend these rotten scumbags and their crimes. Then you ridicule the little people living their little lives “LEeeeeeeeguuuuul”ly.

            Miller’s substack is good.

            Though it should be obvious, it still needs to be said: sailing along in a metal tube seven miles above sea level for long hours most every day is bizarre and unnatural, and fucks with one’s immune system, circadian rhythm, need for fresh air, and proximity to high-powered EMFs.

            Combine that with a compromised immune system and organ attack from multiple, enforced clot shots, and voila! … pilot debilitation and death mid-air.

          • benr July 9, 2024 at 6:03 pm #

            Many jobs require people to be focused and engaged something imbibing in certain legal and illegal drugs is not only frowned upon but discouraged even in off times.

            Airplane mechanics/pilots, boat captains, air traffic controllers, bus drivers, doctors, surgeons really any job that puts people at risk when you are not performing well.

            Correct for the good of the public aircraft mechanics should refrain from smoking dope…you dope.
            Want to smoke dope go sell tickets at the movie theater and I bet they still have restrictions on showing up to work under the influence.

            Legal in states but federally well:
            Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Some examples of Schedule I drugs are: heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy), methaqualone, and peyote.

            And no, I can’t stand the smell of weed and most stoners annoy me with that said o do most drunks.
            I like vodka and orange juice.
            Rum and coke
            Whisky sours and old fashioneds or good whisky on ice.
            A nice gin and tonic with a twist of lemon.

            Lots of ice and lemonade with crown royal blackberry flavor.
            Look I finally found something besides syrup that comes out of Canada!

          • OG July 9, 2024 at 7:14 pm #

            So … to summarize: Presently airline mechanics are not THC-tested but you suspect that they are using this legal substance on their own time and, therefore, you believe that they should be THC-tested and that, further, a positive test should result in their dismissal from their livelihood.

            Is that what you’re saying?

          • Qwibqwib July 10, 2024 at 7:48 am #

            Just in case you guys didn’t know, MJ was recently re-scheduled by the justice department from schedule 1 to schedule 3…so there is that.

            Alcohol has a horribly debilitating effect which is much worse than THC. Sure, pot heads are likely forgetful, and also lazy (in the extreme, lol) but alcoholics cause so much more damage.

            The forgetfulness comes with chronic use, while as chronic use of alcohol has many more serious implications, death of self and others being paramount. Nobody really dies from THC except in rare instances where other causes are equally or more likely.

            Alcohol caused 178,000 deaths in 2020. THC caused 118ish. Alcohol is much much more dangerous. THC deaths, and as the cause of death are so small, they disappear into background noise.

            Since this appears to be a Boeing or united problem.


            Zero tolerance policy.

            If your job falls under DOT they are required to drug test and take action.
            Dept of Transportation
            They have been fined over $500,000 for not drug testing people in the past per infraction found.

            I don’t know of a company that does not test for substances and deny employment when applying.
            Gavin Newsom passed a law saying it was not legal to do so but given everything going on I suspect If you pop positive for alcohol or weed no job.

            OG think about that for a minute….your view is exactly Gavin Newsomes on this subject. You might want to step back and ponder how many other views you have mirrors his idiots.
            You old bleeding heart progressive you.

            Break something or hurt someone on the job damn near every company will in fact drug test you.
            Even LEGAL substances will usually get you terminated and yes THIS includes weed if they don’t fire you expect to go to a detox center or start attending a steps program.

            Amazing as it might seem I voted yes for legalizing weed in California.
            I was tired of seeing people jailed for something half the nation is on.
            It doesn’t mean I like what the substance does to so many people in fact went to a Padres game last night and got lost looking for the car in the dark.

            To put it mildly the homeless problem in San Diego is beyond bad.
            My wife was physically grabbing on to me as we wandered around the downtown area.
            All those videos of people in a zombie state from fentanyl I saw last night over and over.
            The smell of people smoking weed was everywhere as trash, human waste and wasted humans.
            It was depressing.

          • benr July 10, 2024 at 10:29 am #


            I wish I had a dime for every time someone comes out and says bullshit about smoking weed being safe.
            Smoking anything is toxic even them tasty nugs.
            Weed is still schedule 1 federally.
            I your job falls under any federal agency using any drug or showing up with it in your system will probably get you fired.
            Boeing had an acceptable threshold 50ml.

            Test results may vary depending on your age, gender, health history, and other things. Your test results may be different depending on the lab used. They may not mean you have a problem. Ask your healthcare provider what your test results mean for you.

            A positive result can mean recent and past marijuana use. The urine marijuana test will be positive if the amount of THC in the sample is more than 50 nanograms per milliliter (ng/mL). If you use marijuana but your test is negative, it could be because your THC levels are below this level. A confirmation test can be done by a more sensitive method if the screening test is positive. Confirmation tests are done to be certain that the original test result is a true result. It is done to make sure the result was not caused by a medicine or other substance affecting the test.

            Urine tests can’t show the exact day or hour that marijuana was last used. This is because THC can stay in your system even after you’ve stopped using marijuana. THC can linger on average up to 10 days for a casual user. It stays in your system for 2 to 4 weeks if you use marijuana often, and more than a month if you use it more often.

    Peaceful protest 100% behind…what these idiots are going to bring nope frozen water bottles, bricks, shields, hockey sticks, knives, guns, blocking roads, looting, burning private property, actual violence and only the lord knows what else.

    Out comes the firehoses, pepper spray and eventually rubber bullets.

    Why not just move on up to real crowd control measures it’s the only way to put down this paid for protest venues.

    A Wisconsin judge has shot down a suit over planned protest routes by the ACLU and March on the RNC Coalition, ruling the city of Milwaukee and the U.S. Secret Service are within their rights to maintain a “hard security perimeter.”

    The decision came down on Tuesday, just a week out from the Republican National Convention.

    The month-old suit was filed by protest groups seeking to be “within sight and sound” of the convention venue.

    In Tuesday’s ruling, the judge found that the defendants have “legitimate security and other governmental interests.”

    March organizers say that the ruling is unacceptable.

    “There is absolutely no reason they cannot accommodate our march. If the city will not play ball with us, we will simply take the ball and play ourselves,” said Omar Flores, co-chair of the March on the RNC 2024.

    The coalition has previously said it will march “within sight and sound” of the venue regardless of security conditions.

    Demonstrators have two days to decide if they will continue to pursue legal action.

    CBS News. Melissa Quinn, Jacob Rosen 7/9/24

    What is Project 2025? What to know about the conservative blueprint for a second Trump Administration.

    “Over seen by the conservative Heritage Foundation, the multi-pronged initiative includes a detailed blueprint for the next Republican president to usher in a sweeping overhaul of the executive branch.”

    First, IMHO, Democrats,scared to death, are trying to tie this to Trump and he is trying to distance himself from it.


    Four Pillars
    1) a policy guide
    2) A LinkIn-style database of personnel as a labor pool for the administration.
    3) Training for that labor pool.
    4) A play book of actions to be taken within 180 days in office.

    Most of the focus is on number 1. It is a 900 page policy book that lays out an overhaul of the government.

    Abortion FDA to reverse approval of Mifepristone or reinstalling stringent requirements. Also, prohibiting mail delivery of it.
    Family. HHS to state that men and women are biological realities and that married men and women form the ideal natural family unit.
    Federal Agencies. Downsize NOAA especially the National Weather Service as it has been a main driver of the Climate Change Alarm Industry( I do love that name). Homeland.security disband it and place needed parts with other agencies.
    Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Disband
    DEI. Wipe out a slew of positions and elimination of funding for partners that promote DEI. (Watch out universities)
    Immigration. Finish the wall. Take aggressive action against the cartels including military and National Guards. Enforcement prohibition at “sensitive” areas such as schools and churches to be rolled back. Rules to deal with surges in immigration can be made and enforced for as long as necessary.

    Heritage Foundation president Kevin Roberts said in a podcast interview that the nation is
    “In the process of the second American revolution which will be bloodless if the Left allows it to be.”

    Trump wrote, “I know nothing about Project 2025. I have no idea who is behind it.”

    IMO, Liar, Liar, Pants on fire.

    This is documentation of the Right, what most of us are talking about bi-weekly. It concerns me that Trump is backing away from it.

    The Democrats, in the meantime see it as the end of their great experiment with socialism and federal domination. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Well, unlike most of us (actually ALL of us), she decided to read the boilerplate in it’s entirety. What she found was a number of restrictions on the use of her account…specifically purchasing guns and/or ammunition, along with several other restrictions listed.. She contacted her CU and was informed that her acceptance of the new terms was required…”our way or the highway”…to her credit, she chose the highway.

    I know what you’re thinking…Woke Idaho…land of fruits and nuts. Even Jarek once admitted to living there.

      The Political & Business Parasites’ People-Factories

      “Stephanie McMillan: ‘You’re working for $10 an hour and you’re making boxes of frozen waffles. You’re working at a factory. The amount that you’re payed is a wage that corresponds to the working day. So you’re paid… $80 a day, and you produce $80 worth of waffles in an hour, let’s say. So the whole rest of the day, you’re producing waffles for free. The value of those waffles belongs to the capitalist,it doesn’t belong to you who made them… You’ve produced that much surplus value for the capitalist.’
      Derrick Jensen: ‘And the argument is that the capitalists deserve that because they’re taking a risk with their money, right?’
      McMillan: ‘Yeah and because they own the factory. But the factory, itself, was made through the same process, and so it’s congealed[/embedded] stolen labour from workers as well… Capitalists do have the most weapons usually, and they take that stuff at the beginning [historically]. So that’s why they claim to own it– they conquer it. The… first part of capitalism is called primary[/primitive] accumulation, and that’s basically going out somewhere and stealing money and resources and enslaving people… So basically, it begins as conquering and then once it’s owned, they claim to have a right to it. Capitalism involves the domination of this class over the working class and it also involves the resistance of workers to that domination in the matrix of social relations that are manifested in political and idealogical fields. So that’s class struggle, and it shapes our everyday lives, everything we do. It shapes our taste in music, what we care about, what we wear… It’s ideological domination... The whole society, the way that it exists has been shaped by the economic system that we live under… and in the interests of that class that dominates that system.”

      “People who dismiss the unemployed and dependent as ‘parasites’ fail to understand economics and parasitism. A successful parasite is one that is not recognized by its host, one that can make its host work for it without appearing as a burden. Such is the ruling class in a capitalistic society.” ~ Jason Read

    I’ve mentioned before Disney’s tv show Texas John Slaughter starring Tom Tryon (Texas John Slaughter made them do what they oughta ’cause if they didn’t they died). Anyway, one of the character’s shtiks was that when he sensed danger he would get this itch in the back of his neck.

    Well, that’s how I feel. I’ve been getting this danger sense, stronger and stronger as time goes by.

    I believe that every important thing that’s happening now is just an illusion that TPTB are trying to put over on us so we don’t realize what is really occurring. It’s like we’re taking the wrong pill in the Matrix.

    Let me tell you, this feeling is very unsettling. I’m just waiting for the hammer to drop.

    But still, I sleep well at night – for now.

    Life is going to become very difficult for us, I’m afraid. I’m not even close to being properly prepped.

    Last week my car unexpectedly had a computer glitch saying my brakes were malfunctioning – pull over now! I wasn’t going to do that as I was 20 miles from home. I did get home ok, and the next day brought my car to the dealership. The mechanics thought it was the computer messaging, not the brakes themselves. They said this was a common issue with hybrid cars. The problem was they had to find the defective part, order it and then re-set everything. The process took 6 days.

    They had no loaner cars available, so we were carless for those 6 days. We had plenty of food and water, but it was very inconvenient.

    It was then that I realized how unprepared we were, and how much we were dependent on a machine we couldn’t repair ourselves. I’ve been thinking maybe we should buy bicycles.

      Some form of power a generator would be preferred but not gas powered since gas may be hard to find.
      I bought a solar panel 250 watts to recharge a battery bank strong enough to run the fridge and or a coffee maker.
      Do you have at least one gun and bullets to protect yourself and your supplies?

          To continue, guns and bullets are concerned, there’s nothing I will mention directly on-line, but let’s say I’m not worrying about that.

          As far as bugging out, I may be relatively near Boston, but I’m well-hidden away in the woods, and if push comes to shove, then I’ll go down fighting. We’re too old to stay on the run, but I do keep my car fully-tanked, which gives me about 550 miles worth of gas.

          What I’m really lacking is a solar generator. It’s on my ‘to get’ list.

            You can break the bank prepping.
            Get them solar power panels they are cheap, but I suggest looking at the connections closely.
            Costco was selling a pretty good power bank.
            Don’t stress about the things you can’t control just keep buying small things as they come up on sale.
            Some good books to find are off the grid living books.
            Bushcraft books
            Herbal medicine and folk medicine books.

            @ benr:

            When it comes to herbal medicine and folk medicine, you won’t be able to use these effectively unless you are already in the habit of using them whenever possible. That way you’ll be familiar with what works for what purpose, and what dose to give.

            What you choose to keep on hand will be based on the kinds of health or first-aid needs are typical in your household.

            Personally, I’d say everyone should have echinacea on hand–not the Walmart kind, but the dried root purchased from an herb dealer and preferably already made into a tincture. This is a true multi-purpose item, good for many infections and a specific for teeth, kidneys, and the urinary tract. High doses will cure a toothache. A moderate dose will knock out a UTI. I’ve never dealt with a kidney infection, but I would expect to have to go with a pretty high dose. It is completely non-toxic, and the key to using it effectively is: Don’t skimp on the dose!

            Beyond that, an ordinary first-aid kit would be good: some bandaids, bandages, and antibiotic ointment. The rest depends a lot on your typical run-of-the-mill ailments. If you are prone to colds/flu, have the stuff to treat that on hand. (The list for that sort of thing is endless.) If you or your family members get pink-eye from time to time, keep castor oil on hand to smear over and around the eye. (Fixes it right up.) If you get tummy aches, there are several good herbs for that. Have aspirin/tylenol/ibuprofen on hand. Alcohol is good to have around.

            Get in the habit of doctoring yourself now.

    I’m watching Scott Ritter on Judge Andrew Napolitano’s Judging Freedom. Judge Nap just reported that The Lancet (the oldest medical journal on earth) has just reported:

    it is not implausible to estimate that up to 186,000 or even more deaths could be attributable to the current conflict in Gaza. Using the 2022 Gaza Strip population estimate of 2,375,259 this would translate to 7.9% of the total population in the Gaza Strip.

    He also reports that the Israeli newspaper Haaretz is reporting that the IDF:

    a) did invoke its euphemism for mass murder: The Hannibal Directive and
    b) killed more than half of the Israelis that died on 10/7


    There are massive street protests in Israel right now against Bibi-gun the Nutty Yahoo but Western media won’t show it to you.

    If I were a Bibi-gun the Nutty Yahoo supporter, I’d swallow my pride and face facts: Bibi-gun the Nutty Yahoo is a greedy, murderous egomaniac that must be tried and then hanged from the neck until dead.

      Heckler, I know that 186,000 dead is still peanuts compared to 6,000,000 but, if accurate, are they now getting close to your genocide minimum?

      It’d be so much easier to discuss if you’d simply tells us what your genocide minimum is. Right?

      I saw some interesting old population statistics that published in the late 1940s. It indicated that there were more Jews in Europe in 1946 than there were in 1939.

          These numbers are from The Lancet, benr. The Lancet British and is, in fact, the oldest medical journal on earth.

          Are you saying that The Lancet are now in cahoots with Hamas?

          What? You’re now saying that “Hamas members ARE civilians”? Your whole excuse for all this death is that they ARE NOT civilians but, instead, combatants.

            You’re dumber than a rock. The Lancet is not in cahoots with Hamas, you fool. The Lancet performed a scientific study using all data available and came up with this number. You don’t like this scientific finding so your little hawk brain blithely dismisses it as “bull shit.”

            It’s possible anything printed is bullshit, and you obviously know this. Whether or not The Lancet is being sincere on this topic, it seems you may be viewing this through the lens you want it to be seen through.

            Also, let’s not forget from 2022: “The Lancet COVID-19 Commission strongly endorses WHO’s central role in global health, arguing that “WHO should be strengthened” and that reforms “should include a substantial increase of its core budget.

            WHO echoes the Commission’s conclusions that COVID-19 exposed major global challenges, such as chronic under financing of the UN, rigid intellectual property regimes, a lack of sustainable financing for low- and middle-income countries, and “excessive nationalism,” which drove vaccine inequity.”

            I should add that The Lancet, from much more condemnatory evidence, has lately been putting out biased, poorly informed and vetted articles on what is supposedly their mandate: scientific studies on medical topics.

            NYT plus Lancet on COVID. Touché!

            The Lancet is compromised. I’ll accept that.

            OK … now why would TPTB want to now muddy the waters with the truth about 186,000+ Palis dead? Or is it actually far less (as Heckler and benr claim (but sans thought – rather just ‘Go Team Go!’) and they’re exaggerating to … stir the pot even more against Bibi-gun the Nutty Yahoo?

            I’m unclear why TPTB would want this much larger number coming out through this channel at this time. They made us lethargic and ambivalent. Are they now trying to ruffle our feathers? I just don’t see cui bono?

            Regardless, I’m going to search out the Lancet article. I’ll be shocked if there is not real scientific work analyzing real scientificdata. Unlike NYT, the Lancet doesn’t randomly publish just “news.” I’ll bet that they micro-analyzed satellite pix for hours.

            Of course, I could be wrong.

            The same could be asked about why they are suddenly running Biden’s dementia through every page of the paper after denying it for years. Likely answer – because now is the time to do it.

            I think you’re right about ruffling feathers. It may be true, it may not (see: George Floyd), but the timing was right to get people focusing on something they don’t know the truth about for sure to sway public opinion and cause the result they are looking for.

            Please do look into the Lancet’s research on this, because that’s a pretty startling difference in numbers. Did they get that from word on the street, or the Red Cross, or funeral home numbers in Gaza, or their nephew’s Magic 8 Ball? Or did they just say, as you quoted, “it is not implausible to estimate that up to 186,000 or even more deaths could be attributable to the current conflict in Gaza.”

            Because I could just as easily say “it is not implausible that Jupiter is about to be hit by a cataclysmic asteroid, throwing the solar system into imbalance.”

            Certainly since covid, The Lancet is a joke. I worked for 20 years for the company that owns The Lancet and, in my early days, Richard Horton (Ed.-in-Chief) came to our office in Edinburgh once for some reason I don’t recall. What I do recall is that he seemed very nice and he had five boys all at private schools. I would surmise they were at good (=expensive) private schools. They would then need to be financed through university. People like that can’t put their head above the parapet, although, to his credit, RH spoke out in about 2018 (IIRC), like the former editor of the NEJM famously did) to say that he reckoned at least 50% of published science (or it might have been medical science) was false and that science ‘had gone to a very dark place’.

            I’m surprised he got away with that. He had also published Andrew Wakefield’s paper that got him struck off and made a pariah, but retracted it later under pressure. One can imagine the pressure. But during covid, the Lancet lost all credibility (not with normies, obviously). I don’t know how RH sleeps at night – perhaps with difficulty. And surely all those boys must be through university by now, so he didn’t have that excuse. Not that it’s even an excuse.

            If anyone is interested in Vanessa Beeley’s coverage of Gaza and the Lancet figures, you can see it at 43m40 in today’s UKC news. Some of it’s quite harrowing.


          • GreenAlba July 10, 2024 at 9:21 pm #

            To clarify, I’m not saying The Lancet’s figures are wrong, just that arguing from authority, using The Lancet, is ill-advised.

            FWIW, Vanessa Beeley thinks their figures are probably an under-estimate. But then she would?

      @OG @CFN

      The “massive street protests” in Israel are happening, but it is VERY IMPORTANT to note that Israelis are NOT protesting against the war on Gaza; they are protesting against Benjamin Netanyahu being Prime Minister.

      The circumstantial evidence

      (Netanyahu’s serious legal troubles in August 2023, analogous to Richard Nixon’s in July 1974; reports that Israel was aware Hamas was planning to attack, and that the Israeli government then proceeded to relax security).

      and Netanyahu’s own statements that “Oct 07 is our Pearl Harbor” and that “we will remake the Middle East”)

      indicate that Netanyahu leveraged Hamas’ “Tet Offensive” as a pretext to launch the war ON Gaza to secure his position.

      Indeed, various accounts/reports content that 65-80% of Israelis support the so-called “war on Hamas”.

      I have not seen any account of how many support the “ethnic cleansing of Gaza” or “the removal of all Palestinians” from Gaza, because the question is NEVER phrased that way.

      Yet in addition to myself, many informed people, for example, Professor John Mearsheimer, understand that this is the Israeli government’s goal–the removal of the Palestinians.

      In October 2023, a document prepared by Israel’s Intelligence Ministry that was leaked to the media said the best post-war scenario for Israel would be the expulsion of all 2.3 million Palestinians living in Gaza.

        Do not make me laugh. Ever think that Soros, who hates Israel and us, might be doing the same stuff in Israel that is happening here.

        Bibi has clobbered the Hamas fighters in Gaza to stop the rocket flow from there. He is scooping up hostages where possible. How come the idiots in the street are not protesting Oct. 7 and Hamas rather than Bibi?

        Because they are idiots just like here, and bought and paid for by Soros.

        You think any of the idiots might consider that the hostages have all been killed or starved to death? That that might be the Hamas edition of the Samson effect?

        I notice that as Hamas is being neutralized, here comes Hezbollah, shooting rockets off. Next thing we will hear is how Hezbollah is being picked on by big bad Israel. Israel cannot win the PR battle in a world of Jew haters,

            And it was I that ended our marriage, not her. That was my choice. She’s spending her half of my life’s income with what she could attract after I pulled the pin.

            You carry on like I wish that I was still with that scowling buzz-kill but you’re wrong. I left her to be with a better woman and now I am.

            So … there’s the truth. Ridicule me with that if you so please, half-a-man.

            Your rambling, incoherent, factually incorrect rants are amusing.

            You remind me of Biden in the debate. Trump could not respond to Biden

            “I don’t understand what he said, I don’t think he understands what he said”

            That comment applies just as well to your string of comments.

            Yeah, that is not the tune you were squealing about when you first darkened this website with your presence and your arrogance

            No wonder your lady was miserable.

            Keep lying to yourself and projecting that obvious inferiority complex.
