Is there some kind of game on in the USA? Have our public affairs ever looked so false and disordered? Is it ever more wondrous that Joe Biden somehow managed to win the Super Tuesday primary, let alone the national election?

The country has gotten exactly what it saw all through the autumn of 2020: the empty shell of a broken politician. Back in October, Ol’ Joe hiding in his basement was played as a bad joke in a nervous zeitgeist. Nothing to see, according to the captive news media. Wasn’t that exactly it, though? Nothing to see and nobody home, the essence of our now-president, Joe Biden. How on earth did this happen?

My own theory: it was the strange byproduct of the political establishment fumbling to cover up its crimes, an endeavor so transparently inept that the rest of the world goggles at us in nauseated incredulity, watching our leadership flounder, our institutions fail, our economy vaporize, and our power dissolve, like a some dying blob in an epic horror movie. Even our most devoted adversary, North Korea, marvels out loud at the spectacle of American collapse. They joke about it, but it must make them awfully uncomfortable to realize that the USA runs under a shadow government, and runs so ineptly!

Who or what is this shadow government? I’d say it amounts to a small group around former president Obama and former attorney general Eric Holder, plus a coterie of Intel Community figures led by John Brennan, all awkwardly funneling instructions through Susan Rice to the hacks in the White House, who form a flimsy cocoon around the barely-pulsating organism within: Mr. Biden. I will boldly suggest that this cabal is actually controlling the executive branch of the government, and doing it with stunning incompetence. If it sounds like a conspiracy, that’s probably because it is a conspiracy.

What were those crimes of theirs? Mainly the actions they took the past four years to cover-up their intense and sedulous ongoing corruption of previous years, especially all the channels of moneygrubbing that ran from Wall Street and K Street through the halls of Congress, and secondarily their political agenda to destroy by any means necessary the opposition vested in a weak and ineffectual Republican Party at odds with its own elected leader, Mr. Trump.

The “means” turned out to be one dishonest exploit after another aimed at disabling and eliminating the uncontrollable Mr. Trump: RussiaGate, the Flynn case, the Mueller Investigation, Ukraine Phone Call Gate (impeachment No. 1), Coronavirus hysteria, identity politics hysteria (including the 2020 summer riots), the social media companies’ censorship and “cancellation” initiative, and, finally, the engineered ballot fraud in the 2020 national election, with a re-play in the Georgia senatorial special election of January, 2021. How did you miss all this?

I think it worked this way: John Brennan’s CIA enlisted a desperately failing news media in an ideological campaign to propagandize and lie to the American public based on Brennan’s own past ideological disposition as a self-declared “communist.” Yes, he actually said that about himself, though his Marxism and that of his allies was a mash-up of foolish utopianisms used to cover a sheer wish to annihilate any opposition frustrating their will-to-power. I’d venture to suppose that Mr. Brennan continued to influence and even direct these agit-prop operations long after he was removed as CIA Director, even as he fought off accusations for his role in helping Hillary Clinton gin up RussiaGate.

Hillary’s crimes in particular, especially her Uranium One deal and the Skolkovo scam, involved large networks of accomplices in the State Department and in Intel, including the FBI when it was under Robert Mueller, and since they were conducted under the Obama administration, they implicated Mr. Obama too, and many around him. People-of-color and the gender-muddled were useful idiots in the game to bamboozle the public, and were allowed to turn their own grievances into lucrative hustles. Thus, everything became a “racist” and “sexist” boobytrap used to nullify anybody seeing through this game, while garnering new social advantages and large sums of money for the aggrieved, especially the Black Lives Matter org.

All of these cynical power games were, and still are, playing out against the very real collapse of America’s economy and culture. That is the part of the story that nobody controls or can even hope to control. The manufacturing part of the economy has been going-going-gone for forty years, but Coronavirus paranoia has been mobilized to destroy any remaining small business or service, leaving the shell of a commercial sector represented only by rapacious chain stores. The oil industry is on the ropes, confounded by the high costs of getting shale oil out of the ground and the shortage of investor money for an obviously profitless activity. All that’s really left are the financial rackets tied to the Federal Reserve and Wall Street — and they amount to the sheerest vapor given the de-linking of capital formation from genuine productive activity.

Last week’s antics featured two dazzling failures of American diplomacy under the Obama-Biden shadow government: the president’s stupid obloquies against Vladimir Putin, and Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s feckless negotiation with China — in which China nullified our “human rights” complaints involving the Uyghurs on account of America’s incessantly self-declared “systemic racism.” Coming up this week, Joe Biden’s long-delayed premiere “news conference.” Even though the “questions” are all pre-submitted and vetted, and the answers will be scrolling on a teleprompter, Mr. Biden will be working without a net. His handlers must be cross-eyed with anxiety over what might happen. Pretty soon, the game will be up. The election fraud story won’t go away against all efforts to suppress it. The shadow government will get outed as the nation sinks deeper into economic and civil disorder, and some people will have to do something.

    Perfectly summed up. Please forward to everyone you know, friend or foe. They all need to hear the truth.

    • Disaffected March 22, 2021 at 11:17 am #

      Seconded. I think I’ll copy/paste this one into Word and just send it to my idiot relatives as an attachment the next time they wonder about what’s going on in the world. Jim’s nailed every major point here. None of this will end well at all.

      • Beryl of Oyl March 22, 2021 at 11:21 am #

        One of my relatives obliquely enquired as to whether I’d be getting the COVID shot.

        I told her point-blank why I was giving it a pass (no, it had nothing to do with microchips).

        I haven’t heard back from her.

        • Ron Anselmo March 22, 2021 at 11:34 am #

          Did it have to do with the fact that, if by chance you tested positive for COVID, your chances of survival are about 99.97%? Or for those who struggle with math, a fatality rate of about 3 in 10,000?

        • MaryV March 22, 2021 at 1:52 pm #

          The best reason is that it’s in the experimental phase, which probably 99% of the people getting the jab don’t understand. “It’s approved!” they say, by the FDA!

          As far as I know, the FDA approved it for testing under Emergency Order.

          I also would ask anyone who tries to force it on me, will they be responsible for the cost of my medical expenses if the vaccine injures me? IF not, why would I take the chance, when CV19’s got less than a 1% chance of killing me?

          Seems nobrainer. And yet.

          • Disaffected March 22, 2021 at 3:39 pm #

            Now you’re talking mathematical common sense. We Americans don’t do that anymore, haven’t you heard? We prefer to blindly worship authority.

          • aibohphobia March 22, 2021 at 6:15 pm #

            Hmmm, actually in the US and Canada, all vaccines automatically have insurance to cover all medical expenses in the event of a bad reaction through Federal insurance provided by each government– and they have been so covered for many years.

            Any vaccine, not just COVID, has the possibility of going terribly wrong. Generally the odds of getting a bad reaction are about 1 in a million, whereas the odds of getting killed by the various bugs covered by vaccines is much higher without a vaccine.

            It works a lot like seat belts. Seat belts still sometimes kill people in car accidents. If a seat belt kills the driver in one accident out of 100, but the driver dies in 30 accidents per hundred without a seat belt, will you stop wearing seat belts?

            When the risk of harm from a vaccine exceeds the risk of harm from the disease, the vaccine gets taken off the market. This is why almost no one (except biological warfare lab employees) gets vaccinated for smallpox anymore. There has not been a wild case of smallpox anywhere in the world since 1977. Since the risk from taking the vaccine, though slight, is much higher than an ordinary person’s risk of catching smallpox, it is not given.

            While we are talking, a 1% risk of death is a pretty high risk. Not as bad as Ebola, but about 10X your risk from flu. And certain age and ethnic groups are at higher risk of death from COVID.

            Here’s a link to the US Vaccine Insurance Program:

            https://www.hrsa.gov/vaccine-compensation/data/index.html

            Here’s a link to the Canadian Programme:

            https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/news/2020/12/government-of-canada-announces-pan-canadian-vaccine-injury-support-program.html

            So Mary V, Happy Day! All your medical expenses _will_ be covered if you choose to get a COVID vaccine.

            Let us all know how your shot went, OK?

          • Tate March 22, 2021 at 6:50 pm #

            “Any vaccine, not just COVID, has the possibility of going terribly wrong. Generally the odds of getting a bad reaction are about 1 in a million, whereas the odds of getting killed by the various bugs covered by vaccines is much higher without a vaccine.”

            What is your source on that? You mean vaccines in general, the ones that have been thoroughly tested & in use for years?

            Oh, those vaccines.

          • sdf March 23, 2021 at 9:58 am #

            Ok if covid doesn’t kill you, that’s great obviously. The point is without the vaccine campaign or any restrictions we would clearly end up like Brazil, overflowing hospitals and total chaos. Speaking of clusterfuck nations, that country probably tops the list.

          • MaryV March 23, 2021 at 11:47 am #

            @aibohphobia, there is zero chance I’ll allow that DNA-altering crap into my bloodstream. I will be sad when I lose someone to the vaxx. I’ve lost no one to the alleged deadly virus.

            Your percentages are based upon CDC’s inflated numbers. You do realize that since day 1 there has been absolutely no scientific method for counting COVID19 deaths, correct? None.

            The PCR tests are flawed and return 97% false positives.

            One could almost claim that it’s a regular cold virus, rebranded. Or even death, rebranded, as this year the CDC stopped counting flu and pneumonia deaths… funny, that.

            Let Gates make you a GMO, I’m not interested.

            Check out vaxx tracker dot com while you’re at it, and VAERs, and realize that most reactions aren’t reported.

            Anecdotally, I’ve seen at least 200 claims that vaxx has killed loved ones or maimed them in the past 2 months, just on social media. Most don’t know they should be reporting them.

            Kinda hard to deny when the architects of the shitshow tell us what’s going on.

            Why do all the pro-vaxx Karens talk to other people in this ugly, condescending way? What is wrong with them?

          • MaryV March 23, 2021 at 12:20 pm #

            @aibohphobia, did you see the video where the Mexican comic punked Fauci, easily, trapping him into admitting this is an EXPERIMENTAL vaccine?

            And, there is no pandemic, if you go by even the CDC’s inflated numbers, and their own admission.

            But, keep listening to the MSM… you’re so ‘informed’.

            #TrustTheScience – lol.

          • GreenAlba March 23, 2021 at 1:30 pm #

            Goodness, Mary. As one of our regular commenters is wont to say, Aibohphobia seems really to have triggered you. Three replies to one post.

            “Why do all the pro-vaxx Karens talk to other people in this ugly, condescending way? What is wrong with them?”

            Would you rather they said things like ‘smother your children, you sick mess’?

            Do you have a single iota of self-awareness?

          • MaryV March 23, 2021 at 2:18 pm #

            I figured that was your other sock, GreenAlba. LOL and here you are, right on cue.

            My 3 responses were to a very lengthy comment. I will split up my responses if I so choose. That you see that as ‘triggered’ is your own problem.

            Funny to see you trailing around after me again. My biggest fan!

          • MaryV March 23, 2021 at 2:19 pm #

            Goodness, Alba.

            Smothering children is a good thing, in your world?

            OK then.

          • GreenAlba March 23, 2021 at 2:38 pm #

            Thank your for making my point.

            I don’t care about you being triggered. I just recall that your friend refers to others as being triggered when they respond to your sillier post, which I found mildly amusing. Write a dozen posts if you like, in response – all the more entertainment.

            My kids are 40 and 35 and neither has found any particular harm in popping a mask on to go into a shop or on to public transport. But thank you for your concern for them. It is touching.

            Shame you couldn’t answer the point about your hypocrisy, though, and gave yet another example of pathetic deflection.

            Following you around? Too funny. You’re in the 70s with your ‘comments’ so far and it’s only Tuesday.

            But I know that self-flattery is a big thing for you, so be my guest.

          • MaryV March 23, 2021 at 4:24 pm #

            Oh wow, you count my comments?

            Color me flattered.

          • GreenAlba March 23, 2021 at 7:32 pm #

            I’ll just colour you ignorant, Mary, not that it’s your fault.

            You don’t need to count them.

        • MaryV March 22, 2021 at 4:34 pm #

          I don’t think things are going to turn out like this woman thinks they will…

        • abbybwood March 23, 2021 at 8:05 pm #

          I saw today where a third of Americans don’t want the jab:

          https://www.investmentwatchblog.com/almost-a-third-of-americans-say-they-will-avoid-the-coronavirus-vaccine/

          I imagine a Twilight Zone episode where all those who can’t or won’t get the vaccine are “shunned” by the rest of society.

          (I cannot get the vaccine because I bruise easily. I wonder if I can still qualify for “the vaccine passport”?)

          • MaryV March 23, 2021 at 8:23 pm #

            I might not mind that shunning, considering the source of it… lol.

            1/3? That’s huge! Great news. I have 1/3 of the nation I can potentially get along with, and that’s way more than needed to fight back against medical tyranny.

      • Beryl of Oyl March 22, 2021 at 12:17 pm #

        “No matter which platform you prefer,” she told us, “social media has given us all an extraordinary new world, where anyone, no matter their gender, can share their story across communities, continents and computer screens.”

        I don’t know what the “no matter their gender” part is supposed to mean.

        • MaryV March 22, 2021 at 4:40 pm #

          That or racism has to be included every few sentences so that the paragraph is inclusive and not bigoted is my guess.

        • hortonz March 26, 2021 at 12:36 am #

          The American Democrat party and Canadian Liberal party are the biggest threats to democracy both here and abroad since the rise of fascism and communism in the 1930s. Through propaganda outlets like CNN CBC and MSNBC they are fomenting a Hobbesian dystopia where every citizen is at war with each other under the guise of “social justice”. No longer content to use dog whistles and outright pandering to get out their voters they have become nothing less than organized hate groups that seek to suppress any and all opposition to their domination of national politics by using every dirty trick from the woke playbook. I thank God that there are still rational and intelligent adults like JHK who are able to see through their deception and mendacity and aren’t afraid to speak up and tell the truth.

        “What explains the clampdown mania [censorship] among liberals?”

        They’re losing the debate, that’s what explains it.

          YOu got it.

          They just censor everyone with a different opinion.

          Mainstream media lies immediately become un-questioned, and no one is debating them. Meaning people like Tekapo and Green Alba, whose every decision is determined by mainstream media, believe they are in the majority and right. That there is no debate.

          No, it’s because any shred of debate is shut down, censored, and shunned. If they do manage to get through, they are called tinfoil hat.

          • Tekapo March 24, 2021 at 3:07 am #

            No, it’s because any shred of debate is shut down, censored, and shunned. If they do manage to get through, they are called tinfoil hat.

            Okay can you tell me why – if all this alleged evidence was discovered about election fraud – that none of it made it to an official, an admin tribunal, or a court? Many Republican controlled.

            It really is a question that you cannot answer. Are you saying that every official, every admin tribunal, and every court, that did not find in favour of election fraud is part of the Deep State?

            Some proof of that would be good. Over to you … take your time.

          • Tate March 24, 2021 at 1:48 pm #

            Both major political parties are controlled by the Woke oligarchy. The Deep State isn’t self-contained, it has tentacles. Any further questions?

          • kendar667 March 24, 2021 at 6:51 pm #

            @Tekapo

            Do you really believe all the crap you spew on here or is it just trolling? You contradict yourself in the below statement:

            “none of it made it to an official, an admin tribunal, or a court”

            then:

            “every court, that did not find in favour of election fraud”

            If none of it made it to a court, how can said court find in favor or not in favor of election fraud? Too easy. I can easily find similar contradictions or logical fallacies in almost all of your lame posts.

          • MaryV March 24, 2021 at 7:56 pm #

            @Tekapo I haven’t been discussing the fraudulent election. And I wouldn’t, with you, because you believe everything the authoritarian, CIA-owned, Bezos owned, Gates owned, mainstream media tells you.

            There is no point.

          • Tekapo March 25, 2021 at 3:00 am #

            Can I translate this code for you?

            Whenever there is a vote or decision going Trump’s way, it demonstrates the glorious democracy that Americans bask in, drinking free beer and riding pink unicorns through the sunny uplands. A victory for Real Americans!

            Whenever there is a vote or decision that does not go Trump’s way, well … I’ll leave it for you explain the many ways he wuzz robbed by the octopus of venality and corruption.

    Greetings,

    There is nothing we can do at this moment to stop the freefall collapse but get ourselves ready for the banquet of consequences.

    Right now, my goals are related for Force Multipliers. Two way radios – a group with radios can project more force than people without. Night Vision – a group of people that can operate 24/7 are way more powerful than people limited to daylight operations. Anyway, you get the point.

    Each passing day that I still have electricity and internet are blessings. Each day that I do not have to fight Communists in our streets is a blessing.

    • malthuss March 22, 2021 at 10:14 am #

      Look at all the restaurants that are permanently closed,
      all departments stores such as penny’s, macy’s, etc that are closing stores, all the shopping malls that are less than 60% full of stores, therefore, causing mall owners to file bankruptcy, the cruise industry that aren’t going to be bailed out & people not cruising, therefore, cruise companies will be filing bankruptcy, every week between 700,000-900,000 Americans filing for unemployment benefits.

    Well said. The riots in the summer of ’21 will be the event of the season. Similar to the Battle of Gettysburg. Where people sat in their carriages and watched the battle from a distance.

    Americans will be glued to their TVs to watch the riots. As Rhett Butler told Scarlet O’Hara as they watched Atlanta Burn. ” Your seeing the end of the Old South my dear.” Just as we are watching the end of the Old America.

    I am old and will not be around to see much of the New America for which I am grateful.

        Who needs Europe when there is plenty of skin and chaos to see right in Miami?!

Never mind all the germs being swapped, we’ll figure all that out in about two weeks after all the juniors have had their fun and returned to New York, Massachusetts, Indiana, Ohio, New Jersey.

        And a grand time was had by all. The perfect opportunity for Harris and Co. to bring DeSantis down a few notches.

      You’re thinking First Manassas (First Bull Run), where congressmen and other dandies took their friends and families out for picnics while watching the US Army and Marine Corps quash the rebellion. Except the Rebels won, the US forces were routed, and overturned carriages blocked roads, causing horses, fleeing troops and spectators to run for their lives. By the time Gettysburg rolled around two years later, civilians generally knew to keep away from the fighting.

    Some people somewhere will have to do something! And that’s the key question who will these people be. Will it is the military which is some kind of joke itself, those out of the two branches of government all ready bought and will stay bought or will it be the people tho I see little chance of that as it looks they would rather pretend this horror doesn’t exist. Indeed that’s the question that begs to be answered who will it be..

        I live in a small European nation which shall remain nameless. At the weekend my family and I went to the capital to participate in the demonstration against the China Flu madness. There were around 300 of us. It’s been estimated that there are 100’000 people directly or indirectly linked to our closed restaurant industry (owners, workers, suppliers, etc.). These are people who’ve often put 20 or 30 years into their businesses. How many of them were there on Saturday? Zero. If people aren’t willing to fight for themselves, they shouldn’t expect others to.

          The country from which you hail is Slovenia, a nation in which 300 barbarians left behind by evolution can still be found to make their last stand against progress.

          The rest of Europe has moved on to a future of grandeur and magnificence in which nobody has to work as everybody will receive UBI and where products will have become so cheap it is not worth owning them.

          The citizen will be a consumer of services and if in need of an artifact will order it and it will be delivered to her (xes, his?) door in minutes (well maybe not to his door).

          Freed of the need to work people will self actualize, become empaths or simply consume joyful experiences. There will be no need for strenuous learning or tedious activity.

          Such activity (including science and research and development) will be carried out by robots and AI or (before full mechanization is achieved) by a cadre of subterranian Morlocks (to be disposed of later).

          The contours of this vision are already fully defined and most citizens far advanced in adaptation to the new leisure society.

      Long time ago a sociologist by the name of Vance Packard wrote a book titled, A Nation of Sheep. In my opinion, he accurately described the American people as very susceptible to propaganda which could mold them in any desired direction. If that was the situation, in the heart of the Cold War, it is much more the case now. I would not count on any mass uprising of THE people, unless prompted by the specter of no heat and no food; definitely possible.

          Written by a working class dock worker and occasionally homeless man – with a briefcase of library cards as he moved about the country back when.

    Once again, I appreciate Jim’s impressive digestion of the facts behind the smoke screen, but the election fraud story has, in fact, gone away, just as the story of fraudulent Russian Collusion charges went away.

    Future historians, scratching their tomes in clay tablets, may record these matters as part of America’s post mortem but, like Russiagate,
    they will not be revealed in a time or manner that will rectify the damage they have caused.

      And it’s gone away because of the “cancel movement”. If the Mainstream Media along with Google, Apple, Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, don’t want you to know the facts or they deem you a threat, they will cancel/delete you.

      The wheels of justice have indeed ground to a halt.

      Who was occupying the white house when all of the unpunished actions listed in paragraph 6 of this article took place?

      Why was he so inept at defending and upholding the constitution as his inaugural oath dictated?

      Can anybody be that lousy at the job they swore to do? Or was it intentional?

      • Beryl of Oyl March 22, 2021 at 11:23 am #

        Is it intentional that you ignore all the actions that took place to impede him?

        • C.O.Jones March 22, 2021 at 1:12 pm #

          @ Beryl: No, there were myriad actions taking place to impede him – one would expect the snakes and alligators to resist being pulled out of the swamp or having their natural habitat “drained.”

          Respectfully, if your boss told you to have a certain document on his desk by x date, would you do it?

          What was to stop Trump from saying “I want indictment(s) for spying on my campaign and lying to congress about it on my desk by May 1. If you’re not up to the job, tell me now and I will hire someone who is. If you fail, you will be held accountable.”

          Barr was up to his eyeballs guilty of obstruction of justice but not held accountable. Trump should have fired him in the most public manner possible and hired someone – Sidney Powell? – interested in defending the constitution.

          What I’m saying is that Trump intentionally gave a free pass to many of the same people now running the shadow government. For the collusion hoax, Ukraine phone call impeachment hoax, paid rioters – all the items listed by Mr. Kunstler in paragraph 6, by issuing those free passes and not defending the constitution, Trump created the opportunity for the electoral fraud we have experienced, thus handing the United States over to the CCP.

          Nobody is that stupid, even the golden golem with a 200 word vocabulary. It wasn’t an accident. He did this on purpose.

        • C.O.Jones March 22, 2021 at 1:26 pm #

          He ran on draining the swamp but the swamp consumed him and barfed him out all the way to Florida.

          I voted for him twice. I supported him at every opportunity. I prayed for him. I’m done with him.

          To have a re-animated sardine of a woman – Pelosi – kick his political backside up one side of Pennsylvania Ave and down the other was a heart-wrenching thing to watch.

          I’ve had dozens of people tell me “he’s better than Hillary.” Yes. Yes he is but so is my dog who did just as much to drain the swamp as Donald Trump. Vote for my dog.

          • cbeard March 22, 2021 at 3:20 pm #

            I too voted for him twice and supported him the best I could. I’ve been done with prayer for a long time now. I will ascribe to Thomas Paynes thoughts on Deism. I too, am done with Trump, at least as far as him as a candidate. I hope he continues to run his mouth and rouse people from their apathy. We are all sitting on a powder keg and the fuse is lit.

          That’s it!

          He was the CEO. An experienced CEO!

          Hire the right people to get the jobs done and give us yearly progress reports.

          It is impossible to believe that Trump did not have the brains and ego and drive to figure out how to achieve success in his tasks.

          Which tells me “certain” roadblocks were placed in his path. Roadblocks he could not ignore nor could he speak of them.

          This article clearly spells out the roadblocks and they were planned at the UN and in Basel, Switzerland many years before Trump came down the escalator. Trump was either their oblivious pawn to buy time or was in on the scheme:

    I’ve read several news stories over the weekend regarding the rounding up of the capital rioters. The FBI is doing a bang-up job of identifying them from video footage. Their movements to the capital were traced by toll cameras, credit card receipts, and cell phone records, yet somehow the same diligence was never applied to hunting down the criminals among the BLM “protestors”. Will anyone ever be brought to trial for the murders of the off-duty cop in St. Louis, and the 2 teenagers killed in the Chop Zone in Seattle? What about those caught on camera setting fires to businesses and even a church in Washington, D.C.?
    And what of the Durham report? It was supposed to have come out 9 months ago, then in the fall, then right before the election. If it did come out, I somehow missed the coverage of it. It all went down the same memory hole that swallowed up Hillary’s server, the destruction of evidence, and perjury from government officials.

      The Capitol’s security officers opened the doors to the building and invited people in, it is recorded on video for fscks sakes. Why don’t we know the names of these supposed security officers and who ordered them to do so?

      Who ordered the military into Washington to occupy the Capitol?! Who ordered the already prefabricated fencing and barbed wire around the Capitol? Why are they there?

        Yes, they are that stupid.

        Once the goals of the vaccine passport and no unauthorized personal travel are accomplished, there goes any dissent whatsoever, because they will come and pick you up and hold you for trial, without any evidence that you have broken any law.

        There’s a woman in jail in Michigan for the “crime” of running her business, which wasn’t against the law but against an unconstitutional order, so technically she is in jail for operating a restaurant without a food license, because they yanked it when she defied the unconstitutional order.

        As soon as Trump lost the election, the report – if indeed it had any substance – was moot, redundant, last year’s news, surplus to requirements, dead meat.

        There is also the distinct possibility that a report about foreign interference in the election would have found that it was all pro-Trump.

          They’re going to throw the book at them. This from Yahoo News:

          WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Federal investigators have found evidence that would likely allow the government to file sedition charges against some of those involved in the deadly Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol, a Justice Department official told CBS’ “60 Minutes” on Sunday.

          “I believe the facts do support those charges,” said acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin for the District of Columbia. “I think that, as we go forward, more facts will support that.”

            Because as Biden said they hold to their truths verses fact.

            Facts don’t matter only the narrative they wish to live by.

            The protest on Jan 6 is a joke compared to ones that actually had live bombs and actual violence but in the end never let a crisis go to waste even a made up one.

        1. Politicians cry all sorts of crocodile tears about starving babies in Africa, mass shooting victims, etc, but what really angered them is that THEIR house was attacked.

        2. I think the elites, the PTB, Wall Street, everyone at the top, want Pelosi and Schumer to nail the rioters to the wall too – with extreme prejudice.

        3. The Democrats (I suspect) believe that there is good theater and good politics to be had in proving it was no false-flag, no leftie head-fake, and that Trump supporters are violent and dangerous.

        Perhaps they’re trying to get enough electronic evidence to impeach Trump again … the Dems would be mad not to if they have rock-solid evidence of pre-meditated coordination.

    Social networks
    Tech giants
    Banks

    CIA/Military Generals
    Doctors/Hospitals
    Poison phood industry
    Chemtrails
    “Global Warming” propaganda
    Satanism and faggotry everywhere

    Who’s controlling this script? Who scribed it?

    How is it that everyone that counts refuses to acknowledge the blatant fraud and/or do something about it?

    President Trump, within 2 weeks in office, disavowed his call to put her in jail. They all skated, I like I knew and said they would. Not a single one prosecuted.

      Nothing is coincidence. Nothing is by accident. Everything is planned. This is scripted Roman mafia staged theater.

      I think the point about the US “mess” is that it is a big sprawling nation with a lot of political and financial power-plays going on every single day. It is chaotic.

      As a result, everything is unpredictable, not in control. The election of every president since whenever – let’s say Nixon – has been kind of odd and fluky.

      Most recently, Trump’s win was against all predictions – he didn’t expect to win, and Hillary Clinton didn’t expect to lose. Same with Biden – even though all the polls showed he had a winning edge right through July-November, I expect most people really didn’t believe he would do it.

      As for the “Deep State” and the puppeteers puling strings … there may be some of that – but I believe it has, through history – since at least Sen. Joe McCarthy and FBI’s J Edgar Hoover – been a handmaiden of the right, and the Republicans.

      I think the idea that the “Deep State” has swung Democrat and anti-Trump is over-stating stuff. But I do listen to what JHK has to say about the backers and minders of Hillary and Barack Obama … may be true, I dunno.

      But I do believe that Trump winning the presidency was not a good career move for the guy. Time will tell.

    Whatever that ‘something’ is, it will likely involve desperate measures aimed at keeping the social hierachies firmly in place. Which may prove impossible now that the ‘tangled webs’ of some sixty years of Wisner’s Wurlitzer droning on have so confused ‘the herd’ with contradictory fear narratives and congnatively dissonant strands of reality fabrication that the spell is wearing off. What started out in the late 40s as a perpetual hate campaign against ‘The International Comm’nist Conspiraceh’ lost its way when said Conspiracy broke down under stupendously bad management, as these things tend to do. So after a series of ‘Wars’ on a series of cardboard ‘Hitlers’ and vaguely defined concepts like Dangerous Drugs or Terrrorism and finally a virus which may or may o be any more dangerous than a cold. Now that biology is just ‘like…your opinion, man’, everything is up for grabs. Joe Biden perfectly represents his constituency.

    I saw an elderly man attempt to go bounding up a very steep flight of what looked liked carpeted stairs, a well-known safety hazard.

    For some reason he had a piece of cloth affixed to his face, just under his eyes. This cuts off your lower field of vision, which is necessary for depth perception, something many elderly people have trouble with anyway, which is one reason they are more prone to falls.

    The hand rails are there for a reason, safety.

    I also saw a number of younger men, presumably responsible for the older man’s safety, ignore what was happening.

    As the older man was the reputed leader of the free world, perhaps a little more attention should have been paid to what he was doing?

    “The shadow government will get outed as the nation sinks deeper into economic and civil disorder, and some people will have to do something.”

    Yes, but what can they do? Look at what’s happening at the border with lots of people (and more to come) flooding in. Biden’s administration refuses to even call it a crisis and are trying to float the lie that “they inherited a broken system”. Trump forced the Mexican government to keep the people on their side of the border while they were seeking asylum and the new idiots in charge (b/c it was TRUMP’S policy) changed it. And now there are 1500 adolescents in the convention center in Dallas and nowhere to put them.

    Dr. Fauci can’t decide if we are to wear one mask, two masks or masks for the rest of our natural lives.

    Putin openly taunts Biden with invitations for open debate, knowing he can barely string a sentence together.

    And let’s not forget the astonishing statement of ‘Latino’ (actually Jewish from Cuba) Homeland Security Chief Alejandro Mayorkas –

    “The message is quite clear: do not come. The border is closed, the border is secure,” Mayorkas told ABC on Sunday

    Families with children are being spurned back into Mexico, only ‘unaccompanied children’ are being let in, whenever pushed in by their families or the smugglers

    Wait, wat – isn’t that all very Racist? Trump talking about controlling the borders, he was arch-racist Hitler –

    So why aren’t Biden and Harris and Mayorkas ‘Hitler racists’ now?

    Kids are in camps behind ‘cage’ fencing … no pictures now allowed tho, because of ‘covid-19’ HA … Media discuss it all lightly, giving Biden & co a pass

    “They are closing the border only temporarily in order to work on ‘solutions’ for migrants” HA

    It’s as if George-Soros-backed Bolsheviks can do the same thing as orange golem Hitler … but it is all ok, just because they are Soros Bolsheviks

    • SW March 22, 2021 at 11:05 am #

      I saw Mayorkas on the news saying that — he looked very grim and unhappy. What people don’t understand is there is a huge difference between HIM saying “stay out” and Trump saying “stay out.” Don’t you see?! It’s not hypocrisy at all!! He says it with love and compassion and Trump said it b/c he’s an arch-racist Hitler who puts innocent babes in cages.

    Folks seem to think that “the Powers that be” want to destroy American manufacturing and small business, and I think that that is just projecting motives backward.

    I suspect that all makes sense when seen through the lens of “profit”. Manufacturing was offshored by individual factory owners because it was more profitable and there would be greater wealth personally accumulated. Bankers and others discovered “financialisation” and realised that there could be great personal wealth generated there. So they did it.

    Now the end of the game is becoming clear – there are fewer good manufacturing jobs that provide disposable income for families to buy the goods from offshored factories. And the banks are running out deals to make.

    But the Powers will want small business running, because it keeps the unemployed off the streets and not in the mobs. When folks are without “agency” (inability to control their circumstances to some extent) they will acquire agency through participation in the streets. And no-one wants that.

    This is not planned. It just happened as a consequence of greedy, short-sighted thinking.

    • JohnAZ March 22, 2021 at 11:02 am #

      The real mystery though is how they are going to pull off the financial miracle that the Communist takeover needs to get their job done. How to make value out of nothing. How to get a population of do nothings to produce some form of wealth.

      I remember Captain Picard saying that in their century, money has no value, that self motivation and improvement is all that counts.

      Wishful thinking Captain, the idiots in charge today do not have a clue how to implement anything.

        • Yohannon March 22, 2021 at 12:29 pm #

          No. Fascism loves the Nation and would protect the borders. Fascism is not just a pejorative, but an actual political philosophy.

          Communism was and is a dire threat to the West. It is funded by Capitalism, the two being one System, heads and tails. Capitalism and wealthy for the Elite and Communism and poverty for the masses. Destroying the middle class is they key. Covid shutdowns and mass rioting helped to do that.

    Well, all of the folks that believed there is a design behind everything, an organized effort, A CONSPIRACY, can smile for a moment before the blocks come tumbling down. JHK said it, it has been going on for forty years, the continuing ascent of the Marxist class, the power creeps that feed on the gimme class. Feed on and encourage the gimme clas, you know, through a propaganda machine called public education and bringing in immigration to the point that the gimme folks are becoming politically dominant.

    The conspiracy folks have been right all along. The conspiracy no longer fears them and the obvious nature of their domination is now flaunted at all levels. The unanimous nature of the election fraud response was the final annunciation of their power, the Uniparty wins, the Deep State is in control. A demented has been has “beaten” the most effective president in forty years.

    Right now, the result of the Deep State takeover is running rampant. Left wing riots continue, anti lockdown riots in Miami, soon to be economic riots against the oil shutdown and the illegal immigration situation are soon to come.

    Trump is starting to come back to life. I hope his and his followers can make a dent in what is climaxing now in this country. Acknowledging human nature says though they are fighting a losing battle against a political empire feeding on the gimmes.

    Remember the “me” generation of the seventies, the back end of the boomers. That is when the descent and the political gimme movement started,

    That was fifty years ago, that is how long it took to turn the American population into a cadre of gimme whores.

      JHK said that manufacturing has been heading overseas to low-cost countries for 40 years. Seems to me that is the continuing ascent of the capitalist class – the elites, the corporations. They care little (if anything) about the working class of America.

      And the racket called Wall Street – totally divorced from production as JHK noted – is another huge pipeline of wealth heading to the capitalist class. No Marxist ascent there either, that I can see.

      Keep watching those “cages” very carefully, I tell you. Watch how they will soon grow and increase in number.

      Watch how, in a fairly short time, they will wondrously begin to transform into just the sort of gulag-archipelago for Deplorables that our Wise Managers so obviously yearn for.

      Watch even more carefully, for a little longer still, and you will find yourself on the inside of the cages, and the “undocumented” running helter-skelter on the outside. A few, pointing at you, delighted at your fate. The rest, enjoying their little government gibs, or focusing on their own internal vendettas and squabbles.

      We let so much of this happen. We are still *letting it happen. So, it *will happen.

      Whether you believe in “popular sovereignty” or not (I don’t, not much), there is some sense in which a people tends to get the government they deserve. Collective karma, perhaps.

        And the Corporations offshored our manufacturing jobs, and insourced mass 3rd labor, both blue collar and white collar. Capitalism is the Disease, Communism is the symptom. One can die of Communism. I’m not down playing it. But its cause is Capitalism. One can die of Capitalism as well – that’s why people take refuge in Communism.

        Industrialism takes jobs. The early Socialists talked about that, though they didn’t have a solution. That tendency only accelerates with automation and even more so with IT. UBI is the only answer, unless we can go back somehow. Not likely I admit.

        We’re in uncharted territory. Simple answers like “go back to work” aren’t going to cut it.

      I recently found out that some of the people lining up to get their vaccine think they are giving an “in your face” to the conspiracy nuts like me who believe Bill Gates put a microchip in the shots.

      I think the conspiracy theory is that anybody who doesn’t want the vaccine believes that there’s a microchip in it.

      The reason that microchip idea got started is because Bill talked about putting a marker in a vaccine that could be read by an iPhone.

      Oh, yuge difference.

      He also is funding research into a ‘digital’ ID where your personal medical information would be available anywhere in the world.

      But none of this would be used for “tracking”, oh no, that’s crazy conspiracy theory stuff.

      • Disaffected March 22, 2021 at 11:49 am #

        The NFL – unofficial spokesman for corporate America and the MIC – is now pushing the vaccines with every available breath as well. Their upcoming draft – an obscene exercise in excess and greed – is going to be devoted to promoting vaccinations so that things can return to normal by the fall for their annual bacchanalia of football, beer, hot wings, and corporate advertising blitz. As if. The masks, vaxxes, and all the rest of the silliness will indeed be the “new normal;” that was the intent all along.

        • Beryl of Oyl March 22, 2021 at 12:05 pm #

          Speaking of intent, I was speaking of the COVID 19 with someone much less politically oriented than I am, and discussing how I had suspected that “wet market” story wasn’t true, and the minute I learned about the lab in Wuhan, I was certain it wasn’t true.

          Even though she is disinclined to think in terms of global politics, she is of the opinion that the virus did not escape the lab, but was leaked deliberately.

          I was thinking about that last night.

          The Chines commies are known to play the long game. President Trump was standing up to them, and standing up for America, and doing pretty well, all things considered.

          Then in year four of his term, everything went to hell, with that fifteen days to slow the spread.

          They’d had plenty of time to study the man, his strengths and his weaknesses, and they knew exactly how he’d react, when confronted with this challenge.

          China was actively spreading most of the bs about the virus, it was their idea to push the ventilator fraud, for instance.

          They found his weak spot.

          It wasn’t just the commies, some of this scamdemia comes from George Bush, and there were multiple rackets within rackets in play.

          • Yohannon March 22, 2021 at 12:48 pm #

            He was full of weak spots. He knew the testing was fraudulent and thus the whole thing was to a large extent. But he just tweeted about it – as if in his mother’s basement. During the day he stood like a cigar store Indian while Birx and Fauci stole the show right in front of him. He was clearly afraid of the people behind them. So since he couldn’t derail it with his tweets, he decided to top them and take the narrative over with Operation Warp Speed.

            Ditto the Platinum Plan to put Blacks even more above us. We didn’t elect him to take over the narrative and show how much of a “winner” he was. We elected him to overturn the narrative. He got confused about that – or he was just too afraid in the end to really fight. Many kinds of fear, for himself, his wife, his family, or just being seen as a loser.

          Prof sports started creeping me out like 25? 30? Years ago. And then I stopped watching TV altogether 10 years ago. I always felt like I was participating against my will in some whacked out mind control manipulation. And as it turns out, we all are.

            In 2012 there was the alleged “Mayan prediction” of “the End of the World” on December 21, 2012. What the Mayans actually predicted (accurately in my opinion) was the end of the “Age of Fire” and the beginning of the “Age of Movement”. Of course once the New Agers discovered the Mayan calendar, they repackaged it as stupid sauce for the masses.

          The entire point is to locate and then shut out independent thought-processes within the population, as well as any form of unauthorized cross-checking or evaluation. “Accountability” is to be understood as something *They impose on *us, not vice-versa.

          After all, what use is critical thought if we are meant to form a perfect Collective, with all minds smooth and flowing towards the Singularity?

          I was never a big fan of the Enlightenment, but you cannot deny the counter-Enlightenment evil genius at work here. This is like the precise, purposeful undoing of the Enlightenment, somehow using the Enlightenment’s own tools and gifts. We see nothing less than the systematic demolition of all rational, societal and intellectual functions by strategically-placed tangles of contradictions.

          Long story short: the only critical thinking that will be acceptable to them going forward is “critical theory”.

        Quantum dots–a way to instantaneously barcode people so they can be read by a simple optical scanner if they’ve been vaccinated. One of the marvelous “cutting edge” topics in modern medical science; not to mention, an early stage in the Transhuman paradigm of melding the human and technological until they eventually can no longer be distinguished.

        Technically, the dots are not “microchips”–rather microscopic semiconductor crystals of carefully controlled size, which remain indefinitely suspended in solution. You might call them “nanochips” or “picochips” instead. But the term “microchip” is close enough for government work, you might say.

            Provide evidence or quit your pathetic, childish insults. It’s really not the way to go.

            My observation of your MO is that you can make over 120 comments in two days but you will not tolerate that even two of these be accepted with anything other than obsequious sycophancy.

            Someone with your repeatedly self-declared critical-thinking skills should be able to put a name or two to this kind of personality. But if you’re really stuck, I’m happy to help you out.

            “Your sock did it. You can’t hide your style very well.”

            I’m not entirely au fait with US slang yet, so could you please clarify what that actually means, with scrupulous honesty and no disingenuous insinuations.

            Actually, I just don’t like you or the way you talk to people. And you’re constantly spreading disinformation, and you provide no proof of anything you say – and then project that onto me. No one is required to ‘prove’ their opinion. That’s the new wokie think. Go disprove it, if you don’t like it.

            You also use puerile, juvenile tactics that you are too limited in self-awareness to detect – if you knew what others see, you might be embarrassed, but ignorance is bliss I guess.

            Not sure what the counting my comments is about either, perhaps OCD?

            Can’t help yourself, can you? Projection? Don’t make me laugh.

            You’re a narcissist who simply can’t cope with being questioned, so your response is to insult. You project a gallon of childish bile then accuse people on whatever is the other side of ‘invective’.

            You picked up the term narcissism and think it will get you sympathy. Do you see anyone supporting you in your lies and idiocies when they’re pointed out? I don’t. Much as they also value being on the ‘right team’, they value their credibility too. They know they have to do more than just fling childish insults like you.

            And of course you don’t like me. Narcissists never like the person who points out their lies and stupid nonsense, whether it’s fear mongering or just self-aggrandisement.

            You never actually defend the point you’re challenged on, just go straight for the ad homs.

            And it takes a few seconds to get a rough number of
            someone’s comments, BTW. Take off a few for when other people mention their names and Bob’s your uncle.

            You referred to my sock. Please clarify, liar. Really, liar, I insist that you clarify, and with evidence.

            You said I was *probably* one of those people who approved of forcing religions on people throughout history, and despite my response to that you did not apologise.

            Check out your lie about Prince Harry. You can’t help yourself. You are a sensationalist, and you spread lies to feed your narratives and meta-narratives.

            I don’t even dislike you in return, Mary, you are not worth it.

            I’ll help you out, MaryV. Ctrl + F and write in your name in the box at the top of the screen. It will give the number of times your name comes up. Or any other word.

            It’s quite useful in cases where some daft commenter accuses you of following them around the board and you can check that they’ve made around 130 comments and you only took issue with two of them, even if there were many more that might have merited your attention.

            Says the person who tells us Prince Harry is bringing ‘global muscle’ to Silicon Valley by becoming CEO of a new start-up when he’s just got a job as a paid employee same as her, but presumably a bit better paid.

            Go on, Mary, tell us that was an ‘opinion’ so doesn’t need to be proven before you spit it out.

            Get help, Mary, and stop projecting your character failings on to me. Then I’ll just ignore your posts.

      My coworkers are giddy about getting the vaxx, even as they double and triple mask like good little serfs. One was excited about how sick the second jab makes you, and said she’d take a sick day to recover.

      And these people run a college.

      It was over before C19. It was over by the time TDS robbed half the country of its critical thinking skills. They are mind control victims now living in a fake reality.

          Not one question or doubt that what the authoritarians tell them to do is the right thing or good for them. They see these authoritarians more as their equals, or maybe a level up. They don’t see themselves as the low-level serfs they are.

          Vaccine Derangement Syndrome has already robbed Mary of her critical thinking skills to the point where she has theorised (‘read somewhere’) that someone has put microscopic quantities of metal (aluminium?) in The Vaccine to act as antennae for 5G (no, really – stop smirking at the back …), when her blood – all 8 pints of it – is already full of iron. All so that Bill Gates of his friend Xi can tell her what to eat for breakfast.

            You probably are a fan of the authoritarians who forced their religions at knife and gunpoint on populations all throughout history.

            You’re happy to be on the side of the eugenicists, testing their poison DNA-altering crap on an unsuspecting populace, who as we can see, have been driven insane. Otherwise, why the giddiness and cheerleading for a vaccine? This isn’t normal, but you seem to think it is. Good luck with that, and your trolling.

            My concern for ‘your side’, since you seem to need to be on a side, led me (as I mentioned already, but you are not honest enough to acknowledge) to sign the ‘no vaccine passports’ petition on the UK government website, then (putting my money where my mouth is) to join Liberty (National Council for Civil Liberties) specifically because they have a no-vaccine-passports agenda.

            OK, Mary, so with you being a renowned critical thinker an’ all, why didn’t you just say, ‘That makes no sense, of course, because I’ve got 8 pints of blood in me with loads of iron in it. So adding a microscopic amount of aluminium or whatever is going to what exactly, to add to my 5G-radiation-attracting capabilities?’

        I see similar things—the tendency of people even at my church to gab excitedly about their “jab” experience, comparing interminable stories about side-effects or lack thereof, all with the glowy blushy pride of a debutante winning Miss Congeniality, is positively ghoulish.

        I really want to say this must be an early sign of brain damage from the vaccine, but it’s probably just the educational system plus media doing their usual thing—which just happens to *look like brain damage.

        The needle-worship itself reminds me of how Larkin described the girls getting married in The Whitsun Weddings: “a religious wounding”.

        Today, we know better than to actually get married and start families. Instead, you stay at home, perhaps do some OnlyFans for companionship and/or provision, and then get your “religious wounding” at the end of a needle, bearing Sacred Mystery Serums from the hallowed chambers of government and Big Pharma. O raptures!

        What really fascinates me though is how, as it has become more and more obvious that virus is minimally if at all dangerous for the overwhelming majority of people, the mask fanaticism has actually intensified. But it is said that indignation is the soul’s defense against the wound of doubt, so hopefully this doubling-down is a sign the B.S. dam is close to finally bursting.

          It’s so disappointingly prosaic this side of the pond. Three-minute chat (my nurse managed to fit in a mention of Vit D), quick injection, and 15 minutes in a comfy seat reading your Kindle or whatever, then home for a cuppa.

          Well said. Also I found doing some research that the 1918 pandemic they love to compare this to (ridiculously) included astronomical injury from forced masking, which a lot of doctors have been warning about for months.

          Hiding from a virus by breathing in ones’ own effluvia, and wearing a petri dish on their face makes sense to people who get their info from the TV and British hushed voice radio.

    “…some people will have to do something.”

    Ominous words. And while obviously not meant to incite, I’m pretty sure that that “something” will be kicked off in Minneapolis by the supporters of the very “representative” who first uttered them to much public shock and disgust (except for those socially bolstered by their peers for overwhelmingly voting for the Woke choice).

    Things are going to heat up soon as the world watches the Chauvin trial on their phones, tablets and TVs. The coverage will be the OJ trial many times over in terms of reach.

    Cooler heads will likely not prevail for quite a while as the legal driftwood twists and turns from shore to shore each day.

    Whatever that something is, please let it remain in the sticks and stones category. But I’m not so confident that will be the case.

    People are cooped up and ready to be riled and loosed upon the streets…and those pulling the levers of the masses know this just as well, indeed far more, than we do.

Instead, he waited until his last few weeks in office to do it and nothing’s been heard of it since. I love Trump and think he did amazing things, but he seemed to just give up at the end. Maybe he had no choice and had no more allies. Who knows.

          Absolutely. For years now, I have been repeating moratorium, moratorium, moratorium to anyone who would listen. Legal, illegal, it doesn’t matter. It needs to abruptly stop and the only way to fix it is by mass deportation, that the powers that be, nor the citizenry have the balls or brains to do.

      • Yohannon March 22, 2021 at 12:53 pm #

        And a big part of the dumb down was mass education – believing that most people are educable in the first place in any deep sense.

        Elitism must play a role in any viable society. A citizen is a cut above the average person because the average person does not deserve to vote. They are simply unqualified.

          “And a big part of the dumb down was mass education – believing that most people are educable in the first place in any deep sense.”

          Novelist Saul Bellow spoke to this when he opined that the working- and middle-classes who got a helping hand up the ladder re college education after WWII subsequently learned quite a lot of shallow information without any inherent wisdom in how to use it.

          The result was many people in managerial jobs with no imagination feeling free to float their superficial views with confidence as if their regurgitated thoughts were the equal of anyone else’s, proving the Dunning-Kruger effect in agonizing detail.

          Of course, with Woke enabling, this has only increased. And exponentially.

    “How did you miss all this?”

    I didn’t miss it, I saw it all with my own two eyes. Washington DC is Mordor. This goes back to the days of Allen Dulles, whom I consider the most evil American that ever existed. So far in my lifetime there as been 9 coups in the USA starting with JFK and then his brother. But just what are we suppose to do? Protesting no longer works. In 2003 a million people showed up in DC to protest the invasion of Iraq. That was ignored. And then there was Occupy Wall Street. What did that accomplish. Look at the yellow vests in France, what did they get out of it. And I don’t think this weekends protests against the lock downs in London and Europe will done anything either. Voting for an outsider doesn’t work either, as we just witnessed. My own theory: the one enabler to all this, the deep state, the shadow government, etc. is the fiat currency known as the US dollar. Since Nixon did his thing back in August of 1971 these shenanigans have been increasing exponentially. Crashing the dollar will be like throwing a bucket of water on the wicked witch of the west. The prices of bonds, gold and silver at one time kept governments within certain limits, but mechanisms for their price and discovery are manipulated much like everything else, including elections. I stacked plenty of silver a dozen years ago and still sitting on it, at pretty much the same price it’s at today. Now along comes Bitcoin. Bitcoin was created as an equalizer. It has replaced gold and silver. So for now, I’m a big fan of Bitcoin. Will it work, maybe, maybe not. But for now, like millions of other Americans I’m enjoying live outside of the matrix. It was a good winter for ice fishing and skiing. Lots of us out on the frozen lakes enjoying good conversations with each other without the masks. Call us insouciant, but I like to think of us as getting on with life. Look a Florida, they seem to be unplugging from the matrix as well. And Mississippi is moving forward too, they passed a law stating if you are going compete in girls sports you have to have be born a girl.

        Agree. When I marched with OWS, I actually saw some libertarians and conservatives in our midst. Same with the anti-lockdown protests, which people (thankfully) are finally realizing are not consisting 100% of conservatives, right wingers or the religious. Many of my left-leaning friends are marching right along with them. In fact, one such friend led a march and did a speech over the weekend, informing people of the technocracy trying to take us over.

      Bitcoin won’t last. If the U.S. government’s currency machine is threatened they will kill Bitcoin. Outlaw it. Hack it. Shut it down.
      They’ll replace it with their own version of crypto. Don’t fight the Fed or U.S. government. Those boys can wage war, raise an army, levy taxes, control the banking system etc. Far too powerful than to sit back and watch Bitcoin push them around. Sovereignty is predicated upon the ability to issue currency and coin money. Ultimately they won’t stand for Bitcoin replacing that.

      You must be relatively young.

    Finally some answers, and who the Shadow Government pulling the strings really is. Altho, frankly, its kind disappointing to learn ‘the man behind the curtain’, is just some washed up political hacks left over from the Obama administration. Why couldn’t it be Venusians, or Martians, or Lizard People? No, it’s just John Brennan et.al., an ambitious lunatic and political crank. What a letdown!

    Is it ever more wondrous that Joe Biden somehow managed to win the Super Tuesday primary, let alone the national election?

    I think he won the primary race (from Super Tuesday onwards) because the field he was against was not that strong, had various forms of baggage or flaws, and despite his age, Joe Biden was seen as the Dem candidate who could most likely win in November.

    He was the one seen as most likely to attract sufficient white working class plus black votes. This proved to be the case.

    Through the summer and deep into fall, Biden had a modest but very steady winning lead in the polls – in the 6-7 swing states he needed to win to get the electoral college.

    So he laid low, nursing his poll lead, while Trump kept criss-crossing the country – shooting himself in both feet. Some of the things Trump said and did were SO bad, so vote-losing, that more than one commentator wondered out loud whether he was deliberately trying to lose.

    So by November, they were two spectacularly unappealing candidates in my view. And Donald Trump could never garner more than 45% of the vote – so not enough to prevent the ascension of the cigar-store Indian.

    However, President Biden’s approval rating has ticked upwards:

    President Joe Biden’s job approval rating ticked upward on Friday, across three different polls, following his victory in stimulus negotiations and distribution of 100 million COVID-19 vaccines.

    In one poll conducted by Reuters/Ipsos, 59 percent of voters said they approve of the way Biden is handling his presidency, while 35 percent said they disapprove. The 59 percent approval rating is an increase of 5 percent from the previous week, as 54 percent said they approved of his job as president. (Newsweek)

    The Biden Administration is still in a “honeymoon” phase – and hugely assisted by having a Dem Senate …

    I don’t know the real state of President Biden’s mental capabilities – but no-one does outside a very tight inner circle. But it would be very good to see him handle a no-holds-barred, sprawling, unscripted, media conference for an hour or two. Just to give the nation solid assurance.

      He was the one who had worked under Obama and thus his loyalty was a known quantity. As was his loyalty to China, another plus to these Traitors.

          Any one who would repeal the Bill of Rights, in whole or in part, is no American. Else what does being an American mean? Obama is on record expressing deep disapproval of our Constitution. Wish I could tell you more, but his record has been sealed. You tell me why, sport.

          In the same way that the left sees everyone who supported Trump to be a “traitor”, because…well, I’m stil trying to figure that one out.

          Oh wait, that’s right…the rallying cry!

            I don’t think that’s right … Dems might think the Trump MAGAs are deplorable, tattooed and toothless, yet not treasonous … but it seems to be Repubs who believe that a vote for a Democrat is un-American.

            Personally, I support democracy – who you vote for should be personal and private (neither a badge of honor nor a badge of shame).

            Stirring up the base to storm the US Capitol was a huge strategic mistake by Donald Trump. And attempts to blame it on leftie agents provocateurs have fallen flat … there’s too much video evidence.

            @Tekapo please quote where in Trump’s speech from that day he incited a riot. BTW? It happened before his speech was done.

            @Tekapo please quote where in Trump’s speech from that day he incited a riot. BTW? It happened before his speech was done. It was a false flag.

            I actually agree that it is very tenuous whether Trump explicitly incited the storming of the US Capitol, and I thought it was a pretty weak impeachment.

            There was a much, much stronger case the year prior – when he clearly stood over the Ukrainian prime minister. But the Republicans in the Senate were too gutless to nail him … I bet they’re regretting their cowardice these days.

            However in a broader sense Trump incited the tattooed and toothless for months beforehand … there was a lot of grief, a lot of damage to the republic, and a lot for Trump to answer to.

            But he doesn’t care – for him life is all about him alone – and everyone else be damned!

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder March 24, 2021 at 3:13 pm #

            Nice backpedaling, Tekapo.

            But if, as you so reasonably just stated, that it was very tenuous as to whether Trump explicitly incited violence…

    This is a great one, JHK! Thank you for the continued excellent analysis and conjecture.

    The note you end on is my biggest fear – someone will have to do something when it all unravels. I am seeing a lot of green screen bizarreness surrounding POTATUS, and that is not reassuring. When these people are up against it, their go-to seems to be shoddily performed false flags of some type, and they are obviously never concerned about the size of the collateral damage (lives lost). They’ve blown up buildings and terrorized entire nations, and desperate people do the worst things.

    I also don’t know how we handle a society that now consists largely of people who are in a psychological fog and live in a state of false reality. James Lindsey coupled with SOTT’s commentary has done an excellent overview of this (and so we can see how wokeness plays its very important part).

      I don’t see desperation in the actions of “the powers that be”/”the deep state”/”the Masters of the Universe”. Why should they be desperate? They got the Big Guy “nominated” in the biggest scam of a primary that I am aware of. They got the Big Guy “elected” president in the most obvious election theft I have witnessed in the US. And they’ve got us running around like chickens with our heads cut off due to a “virus” of mysterious origins (unless you look at the evidence…). They are promising to take our guns – and everything else – but don’t worry, we’ll be happy. And what are we going to do? What we always do – nothing.

      Desperation? Sure, growing like a weed – but not in the gardens of our masters.

        They don’t want the child trafficking that so many of them are tied to exposed. So one of their tactics is to normalize every perversion known to man – seems to be working (see: Cardi B, the Dem’s attempt to make pedophilia simply a ‘disorder’ not a crime, the Drag Queen story hours, the availability of porn to children and even child porn – they refuse to shut that down).

        There is proof right out in the open – that the highest powered people in the world are connected to or actually fund or participate in sex trafficking, including adults and minors. There are 40 million people trafficked in the world right now.

        They can’t have that exposed. Much of the trafficking is also used to blackmail people in high places so they can be controlled. That’s also why the corruption is so bad. They’ve gotten to just about everyone.

        • Blackbird March 22, 2021 at 2:48 pm #

          Absolutely, I see normalization, not only of the elite’s perversions, but more importantly of the post-factual world, and the preeminence of emotion over reason. But I don’t see fear – only that reflected off their Raybans.

          • MaryV March 22, 2021 at 4:53 pm #

          The “interview” Biden did with Cardi B struck me an a new cultural and political low.

          We had some black bodies having a rally yesterday at the capitol for Breanna Taylor’s death-a-versary, and 40-50 counter protesters, but that was about it. No rioting, etc. Apparently, the numbers were way down from last year’s protest, which makes sense.

    ” Even our most devoted adversary, North Korea, marvels out loud at the spectacle of American collapse. They joke about it …. ”

    JHK

    I gotta admit this made me smile.

    No doubt many will think it’s because I hate the United States Government.

    I do hate the United States Government. .

    But I think it is because , well, for example , the other day I read elsewhere ,

    ” more than 90% of participants in psychological studies come from countries that are Western, Educated, Industrialised, Rich, and Democratic (W.E.I.R.D). ”

    ( of course I , personally, already knew that. But then , it’s pretty obvious IF you ACTUALLY EVER DO read more than a paragraph of this social ” science ” stuff. )

    And to all appearances , you are completely oblivious to little things like that.

    It’s not even on the radar.

    Some CFNers might ( ?? ) be mildly pleased to hear me say that in this , in my view , Leftists are incrementally worse about this than the MAGA crowd.

    Their mantra is , ” We are the world. ”

    No , you are a cultist subculture.

    Back to North Korea ;

    In my time on CFN I have heard a good share of utterly dismissive condescension directed at North Korea.

    This strikes me as exceptionally weird , bizarre , unaccountable , especially so here on CFN .

    How so ?

    What if gasoline did cost 50,dollars a gallon ?

    Well, thanks to absolutely punishing and punitive sanctions , North Korea has been dealing with pretty much just that for about 30 years now.

    But , yeah , dismissive condescension.

    Whatever.

    Granted , presumably you don’t want North Korea as a role model , you don’t want to imitate North Korea.

    But it would seem , at least to me , that if you don’t want to imitate North Korea ,

    and if the shit does hit the fan ,

    you might want to study places where the shit has already hit the fan , instead of waiting until you are neck – deep in shit ?

      • KesaAnna March 22, 2021 at 2:24 pm #

        Funny how Christopher Hitchens pointed out that , though North Korea is avowedly atheist , and doggedly secular , it is never the less arguably one of the most profoundly religious societies on the planet.

        But then , at least as far as I know , he didn’t pursue that thought any further.

        And maybe it isn’t paradoxical at all. I have said many times that it seems to me that the BEST arguments FOR religion are presumably anit – religious arguments.

    Joe Biden’s SOTU address, April, 2021

    Scene: House Chamber

    (Various Congresspersonhoods scattered throughout, masked, desultory. John Roberts, robed, trying to rub out a migraine, slumps. Brian Kemp has a coughing fit into his mask, which he then removes and reverses before putting it back on. Kamala Harris, behind Biden, heels up on a table, in a short, tight-fitting black dress, legs spread, heaves her shoulders, head back.

    Biden, nervous and confused, waits for the teleprompter to roll. Face transforms into a waxy frozen smile.)

    Biden:

    Ladies and gentlemen, transgendered, ungendered, gender fluids, multi-genders, unknown genders, women, Latinx, Blacks, Natives, multiracials, aliens from another galaxy, the moribund, the sick, the disease-ridden, the addled, the vain, the silly, the myopic and carbuncled, the triggered and titillated: you have my pity and brief attention.

    It’s been a Dark Winter, a Winter like no other in our country’s long history. A winter of viral loads, and I’m not talking about those in our pants. No, these loads were loaded with the motherlode of all viruses: Covid 18! We’ve seen many people — well, actually we haven’t seen them — but we’ve heard about many people succumbing to this horrid disease, especially in Red States where masks were only worn at Hallowe’en parties. We also know that Covid 17 will continue to be with us through our Dark Spring and on into our Dark Summer and beyond. But as Gene Roddenbury said, Space is the final frontier. Space between my ears.

    (Roberts groans. Kemp lifts his mask briefly to expectorate between his shoes. Harris rubs her thighs ambiguously.)

    But of course, all this pales, this Corona 16 thing — I’ve never liked that cheap Mexican beer anyway — next to the real scourge, Trump and the Insurrectionists. We’ve taken steps to ensure that these criminals will never again have the right to infect us with their views, starting with my enactment of the National Emergencies Act whereby everyone who voted Trump will have to consent to wear an ankle bracelet at all times, and until the wrist microchips are finalized and rolled out. (Long pause.) Don’t ad lib, you fucking dolt … oh. (Clears throat loudly, wobbles.)

    Here are some other things that we’re fast-tracking into motions and orders: an annual award for the County and State that has the most gender-alphabet-friendly public bathrooms in the nation.

    A Harriet Tubman $20 bill, replacing that old White guy, can’t remember his name. And don’t worry, Robin DiAngelo will make it on the $1 bill soon enough, replacing some other dead guy with dead ideas.

    Quit going off-script, you fucking moron …. don’t read that part out loud, Jesus Christ, we primed you for this the past three weeks. Keep to the script, then wrap it up …. excuse me, folks, don’t mind that.

    I’d like to single out and honor our Fighter of the Year, LaTeesha DeMonterus Nelsesha, a courageous Black Muslim transgender feminist just fast-tracked here from Chad, and picked for her exotic looks and bedroom skills … stick to the fucking script, dummy.

    Stand up, LaTeesha! There she is folks, what a babe. Makes all my leg hairs stand up firmer’n all the peckers in a porno house showing Cheerleaders Fisted on a Prison Field Trip. (Long pause, tears forming. Biden rubs his eyes with the upper part of his mask.) I think that was Volume Three, I’ll have to check. Time to watch it again anyway.

      Instead , it is 30 year olds bragging about beating up 8 year olds. ( in so many words , that is. )

      So everything is focused on , and blamed on , little people who have scarce any say in anything.

      This is great news, thanks for sharing.

          As long as ‘white’ remains a race, then I have a case. Maybe wokie culture doesn’t consider white to be anything but a condition, but in law it’s a race.

          The law says they cannot discriminate against someone based on race.

          I think this will all be blowing up soon!

          • Ishabaka March 24, 2021 at 3:57 pm #

            Well the Biden administration just shut down the Justice Department’s case against Harvard for discriminating against Asians in admissions, so good luck with your case.
            Discrimination against Whites is fully supported, as to a lesser extent is discrimination against Asians (despite what you might hear from the hysterical media these days).

          I suspect that it extends far beyond DC – federal judges, governors, state reps, county sheriffs…

          • Night Owl March 22, 2021 at 5:50 pm #

            It is called globalism. It extends to the OSF, 5EYES, and every NGO that worked with Obama, Brennan, and their hacks at State, the FBI, etc.

            It crosses party lines.

            It is amazing to see how many still don’t see it.

            And the pandemic. It is a hoax. Also perpetuated by global capitalists. The numbers are fake (PCR test does not work), the symptoms encompass any symptom they want it to, and the vaccines were poorly tested and do not even function as normal vaccines. Face diapers of cloth and paper adorn faces for no reason, as they induce sickness rather than prevent sickness.

            And of course, in all of the big McMedia narratives, the same names show up again and again.

            As much as I like JHK, he has been very reluctant to talk about the core of the issue. This week’s post got a little closer, but it ain’t there yet. This is not just an American problem. What do people think these fuckers do at DAVOS. There are pics of all of them toasting each other with big tech. execs. and media heads. There are white papers outlining nearly all of what is going on.

            Yes, the truth is coming out. However slowly.

            A year ago I asked why planes were still able to fly, if this virus is so deathly and threatening.

            Never answered… planes are flying petri dishes, but for some reason, they were never grounded. How can that possibly be?

            Not much about the plandemic was done well, it contradicts itself at every turn. And yet, for a year, they have been able to keep people believing in it as if it’s some new religion. Complete with rituals that must be practiced all day every day.

            Like the one James Alefantis was trying to access by jackhammering through the floor of his restaurant, as per a now deleted post on Fakebook? I’m sure J’aime Les Enfants was just shuttling pizzas around. That’s the kind of customer service that made him #49 most powerful person in DC according to GQ. Now move on with your metaphysical speculations, we got a hole to dig.

          • Night Owl March 23, 2021 at 5:12 am #

            I don’t recall that post, but I do recall the references to kiddie smut he had posted before his Instagram, Twitter, and FB stuff went offline.

            I have mentioned this before, but I used to play rock shows at Comet. I saw the pedo murals back by the tables, and there were other oddities about that place. The motto of Play Eat Drink (PED). The “hidden bathroom” gimmick, which involved pushing a false wall to reveal the bathroom.

            There were many red flags that made that place worthy of a proper investigation by authorities, not to mention Alefantis’ connections with other pedo art afficianados. Google Tony Podesta art (J. Podesta’s lobbyist bro).

          • MaryV March 23, 2021 at 10:53 am #

            @Blackbird, we saw all it took to steer the bad attention away from Alfantis – and yeah it’s plainly obvious who and what he is. And his connections.

            Just one guy shooting a few bullets, I’m guessing yet another crappy but effective false flag, and then the press glomming on, and that was that.

          • MaryV March 23, 2021 at 10:55 am #

            @Night Owl wow! I had not seen your posts about having played there.

            I have seen Podesta’s art – OMG.

            I have also seen all of the Comet stuff.

            I have absolutely no doubt that what the people uncovering it claimed is true.

            It is only possible that this was not broken wide open because of the media pile-ons, censorship, public shaming and banning of everyone who put forth evidence.

            The media is on the side of the pedos, 100%.

          • Night Owl March 23, 2021 at 5:00 pm #

            Mary — yes, this was back in 2007/2008 before any scrutiny was placed on Alefantis or the restaurant.

            That said, it was known to be a bit creepy even back then. The Pizzagate narrative was a media concoction. I have little doubt that Alefantis was involved in some sick shit. From social media posts to oddities about Comet and that whole gang. There were several bands that regularly played there (not mine), who had crossover in the member department. A few were truly demented fucks.

            Alefantis’s connections to the Podestas make perfect sense. Would be curious to find out who else he is linked to and what his true background is.There is a Rothschild family photo with a guy in it who looks just like him, and his facial similarities to Phillipine are pretty clear:

            https://edge.alluremedia.com.au/uploads/businessinsider/2014/08/734565491.jpg

            Reminds me of good ol’ Anderson Vanderbilt (er, I mean Cooper). Here he is with his mom in a truly wholesome photo:

            https://neonnettle.com/features/images/anderson-copper-exposed-as-satanic-elite-pedophile-ring-member-2151217.jpg

            LOL.

            You would not believe some of the people I met in person at various social functions in DC. Sickos, weirdos, occultists, oh my.

          • MaryV March 23, 2021 at 6:23 pm #

            @Night Owl I am positive Alfantis is heavily involved with the DC pedo underground. My gawd, just his name – criminy.

            And the emails Wikipedia exposed, with Podesta parties… ugh.

            It’s enough to paint a pic, and we can connect the dots. Well, others have. And the pics I saw of kids taped to tables in Comet? Ummm. And the pedo art? Yeah, that whole thing was about to blow, enter the false flag crazy guy with a gun.

    ” They don’t want the child trafficking that so many of them are tied to exposed. ”

    — MaryV

    Only if they really are running out of bribery money I think.

    After all , in 1861 the narrative was , ” Slavery is baaad . ”

    Except that it was blatantly overlooked easily enough apparently that in the north you had 12 year old white girls working ten hour shifts , 6 days a week , and the day you can’t make your quota , our girl is tossed out in the street. We don’t owe you shit.

    And apparently it is overlooked easily enough a hundred years later , too.

    And , in the hundred years since , we have repeatedly seen the Untied States go into a village — a village the average American couldn’t point out on a map , and wouldn’t care to either — and torch the whole village.

    Granted , torching the village isn’t exactly the same as diddling a kid , but it is arguably royally fucking the kids ?

    And it isn’t as if you need some Conspiracy theory website to find this shit. You can look this shit up in the Encyclopedia Britannica.

    Never the less , the story is that American foreign policy has been all sweetness and light , leaping unicorns and rainbows.

    And no kids got fucked.

    Then you have the sexual revolution . It started with short skirts , free love , the pill , and Playboy Magazine.

    50 years later , near as I can tell , the actual Playboy bunnies are 13 , and the only guys getting any pussy are the Pedos on country club row.

    — Meanwhile the culture wars are being won by folks who stuck with Catholic doctrine — even if they aren’t Catholic , even if they never even heard of the CCC.

    That is , they are winning the war not with guns , but with babies.

    Never mind all of that , though , we are gonna win by dropping a few billion more on super – tanks ,

    and adding a few thousand more homosexual bureaucrats to the FBI.

    That’s what I see , anyway.

    • KesaAnna March 22, 2021 at 3:25 pm #

      Leaving out the part about how public schools aren’t public schools , and maybe never were.

      No doubt five minutes from now someone is gonna bemoan the deplorable society – wide ignorance and dishonesty —– but then two minutes later assert that things have improved soooooo much since the state sidled up to our 12 year old factory worker and said , “Let me help you. ”

      So , no doubt , I’ll have 500 opportunities to address that bullshit.

          I heard – and this may be just a rumor – that Ronnie OD’ed in a gay club in SF in 1969. His corpse (well preserved in advance from years of disciplined alcohol consumption) was reanimated by the electronics of one of the Pirates of the Caribbean from the display at Disneyland. Supposedly if you watch Wonderful World of Disney religiously (as I did), during the 1968-69 seasons, there was one more pirate in the opening credits in ’68 than there was in ’69. Can’t say I noticed. I was already wound up from Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom and ready to dive into the main attraction.

          Now the theft (by the Reagan mafia) of John Wayne’s soul – that’s something I don’t want to get into.

    @ MaryV ( again )

    I finished reading ,

    ” Inside The LC: The Strange but Mostly True Story of Laurel Canyon and the Birth of the Hippie Generation ”

    A few days ago.

    The bad news :

    I think the Hippie generation as a military Industrial complex psy – op

    is far – fetched .

    I think world – wide Satanic pedo conspiracies are far – fetched.

    ( In brief ; I don’t think Anton LeVey himself took himself seriously , and who needs a conspiracy ? The nickle – and – diming – of children to death is blatant . )

    The good news ; ( ? )

    Here it seems to me , in anecdote after anecdote , is an object lesson in the point that , if you think Senators and rock stars and college professors are a cut above plumbers and waitresses ,

    they aren’t.

    • Blackbird March 22, 2021 at 4:22 pm #

      Read a lot of Dave McGowen. Gotta say I find “Laurel Canyon” rather convincing. Don’t have the data for a statistical analysis, but the number of folk/psychedelic rock acts that burst onto the SoCal scene in the mid-60’s with military intelligence backgrounds/connections (and no discernible skill) appears significant. The role these bands played in redirecting ’60’s youth from social activism to hedonistic narcissism seems undeniable. Satanism and pedophilia? Seems they’ve made serious progress in gaining acceptance since Ike’s day.

      Nah, all just a big coincidence – that’s a relief.

Amazon used to have a record of my purchases – they probably still do but I can’t find it. Maybe it wasn’t Kindle, but it was an ebook. Nowhere on my computer. So I can’t tell you how many or who until I buy a hard copy. Very interesting book, maybe you could buy it and tell me?

          • Soul Forensics March 22, 2021 at 6:19 pm #

            Blackbird,

            I mentioned this phenomenon a few weeks ago. You don’t own any book on Kindle, even the ones you bought, not borrowed. Amazon, at its own discretion, can delete any book from their store, and any book from your own library, without reason or justification. It’s all in their TOS.

            If you purchase anything from Amazon that you dearly want to preserve, copy it right away on to another device, or even a copy-and-paste job onto a Word document.

            It’s all very convenient for TPTB, of which Bezos, the owner of WaPo, is a member.

        I have been also trying to find some connections to the sudden rock scene and mass hysteria/hypnotizing. Culture, TV, academia, movies, music – all seem to have been used as tools to deliver us into the mess we are now. I find studying the psychology behind it fascinating.

      Good point about LeVey.

      He was basically a showman and snake oil salesman who made fun of his so called ‘followers’ and considered them suckers. LeVey worked in the circus as a kid, which is where he got schooled on fleecing the rubes.

        I have one of the country’s largest Anton LaVey collections. I have about 200 magazines dating back to the 1960s. Not once have I ever heard or read that Anton put down his followers.

        • Yohannon March 22, 2021 at 6:18 pm #

          Did you get the last one, the eulogy Black Flame? One of his disciples talked about traveling by bus across country to see him. He hid a large (what do you call it?) of cheese where no one could find it, just so he could enjoy watching people suffer from the stink and go crazy looking for it. Then he would describe the scene to La Vey when he arrived. La Vey loved it and was eager to hear all the details.

          • Kevvia Knack March 22, 2021 at 7:09 pm #

            No I don’t have any of the in-house publications. Most of my items are men’s magazines and tabloids from the ‘60s and ‘70s but I’ve got more recent publications as well. I never met Anton but I’ve met and had interaction with his grandson, Stanton

      • Yohannon March 22, 2021 at 6:14 pm #

      Like Blackbird, I find a lot of McGowan’s work very convincing.

      I think his dissemination of the Boston Bombing is superb.

      The connections he has drawn are pretty much undeniable, and I am not a believer in huge coincidences.

      So much of it works for me. I do like reading other sources as well, seems a lot of people have come to the same or similar conclusions.

      I also took time to read some of McGowan’s detractors, but sadly they all use the same false argument formulas and tactics I’ve studied and am well aware of. So, nothing solid… the only refutations I’ve seen are basically people saying he’s wrong, with nothing to back it up.

    Spot on. How more than 80% of the nation can’t plainly see what happened – right before their eyes – is truly scary. The end game cometh. It may take another 6-12 months for hyper-inflation to emerge, but it’s coming and it will be game over. Gallon of milk will cost $10 very soon. Pound of ground beef $20. Dozen eggs $5. Housing prices triple in 1 year. Multi-families will be forced to live under one roof. You will be told by the media how ‘much fairer’ that is, comrades. Food strikes, general strikes, etc. will emerge like post WWI Germany. History repeats, and big time.

    Woman of Asian descent assaulted in NYC on her way to protest anti-Asian violence

    “The NYPD said its Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating.

    ‘The unidentified male is described as being approximately 6’1” tall, 200 pounds, with a medium complexion, [huh!] slim build, black hair, last seen wearing a red Chicago Bulls hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, a black baseball hat, a black face mask, black sneakers and carrying a green back pack,’ the police said in its public request for help identifying the suspect.”

      An Asian woman was killed last night in Los Angeles. She was abducted apparently in Corona and her body was found in Compton (Black area). The news report I heard on the car radio was short and sweet, apparently because the perpetrator was Black. If a white guy was suspected of killing her I’m sure the crime would be getting more attention. Maybe it is I haven’t been listening to the news but I doubt it

      They’re still extremely happy that they helped (in their very small way) to cause the demise of Orange Man, and they defeated Fox News on this front.

      But I think you’re still looking in the wrong places. The vast majority of the middle-of-the-road voters are watching the mainstream broadcast channels (CBS etc) … not the cable news dudes.

      And the reality is, that for MONTHS prior to the Nov 3 election, all the polls (and average of polls) were showing that Joe Biden had a winning lead in the 6-7 swing states. Hard to deny this.

      The Dems did not have to steal the election in my view … Donald Trump lost it through (a) some really serious errors, and (b) his support never getting above 45% – and that was not enough to win.

    I don’t read MSM alleged news articles, but it’s hard to completely ignore the headlines when they roll across my screen on my MSN feed as I wait for my e mail to fire up. I suspect that most of the deluded populace doesn’t read the articles either, which is why most of Fear Inc’s efforts are focused on creating a headline that is both click-bait worthy and Woke.

    Here’s one today: ” ‘Covidiots’ overwhelm Florida’s Miami Beach in Spring Break swarm.”

    Notice, first, the quotes around Covidiots. In this way, they can both highlight the supposed stupidity of those without masks, while also deflecting any blame for being non-objective by stating it’s what other people have said about the maskless.

    Then we have “overwhelm”, as if the beach was inundated with these fearsome people, and no one could escape from them. The interwebz informs me that Miami Beach is 100 miles long. What, the entire population of China managed to make it to Florida over the weekend to jam up every inch of sand?

    The scare headline ends with “swarm”, bringing to mind, of course Biblical plagues and horror movie infestations.

    And the actual brainwashed idiots nod along, then re-post to their friends on facebook where they can bask in each other’s superior virtue and powers of discrimination.

        Why are airplanes – flying petri dishes – still allowed to fill the skies, and are not considered ‘superspreader’ events?

        Why can no liberal plandemic believers explain that?

        Shouldn’t they be whining and throwing fits about planes not being grounded?

        Instead, the planes are full of masked Karens.

        • benr March 23, 2021 at 4:59 pm #

          Actually s long as the planes are properly cleaned everyday they are pretty safe even without mask protocols.

          The hepa filters work wonders and the air is actually moved out and new air moved in according to the plaque on the Southwest flight I just took every 2- 3 minutes.

          I had a good laugh with a lady Sunday when we landed in Norfolk after a horrid flight from Chicago about the social distance stickers on the ground after sitting cheek to jowl like Sardines in a can for the last six hours on two different flights.

          She rolled her eyes and stated very flatly how stupid all this covid nonsense was and the funniest part everyone in earshot also piped up except of course that one twenty something obese non gender binary Karen with Purple hair and tattoos all up her arms.

          She got so angry she started spitting venom and one of the other twenty something in the crowd told her to pipe down.

            Re: the air in there? Where is it filtrating in from?

            The outside of the plane? Where the atmosphere is so thin that you have face masks waiting to drop down if you lose pressure?
            People can’t survive Mt. Everest but we are told that planes now exchange air at 50,000 feet. I think you’re sold a bill of goods.

            No, they are flying petri dishes, even if they slap some hand sanitizer on it.

            Masks don’t work, so everyone is breathing in everyone else’s germs.

            I am assuming all the Karens just sit there seething the entire time, policing people for the slightest infraction.

            No, I read quite a long time ago that the air in airiplanes is clearner than the air in, say, the terminal. Yes the air is recirculated, but the filters are very affective.

          Someone stated that the Internet informed him that Miami Beach is 100 miles long – and then extrapolated that error into an argument that the beach could not possibly be crowded. I was pointing out that Miami Beach (and specifically the popular spots) are not that long.

          I’ve also been to Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, the Keys, and other bits – I agree that there are long stretches of continuous beach, but not the point here. Anyway – not worth fighting over details … we’ll see soon enough whether Spring Break was a super-spreader event.

    This week’s article by James Kunstler is the best summary of recent American socio-political history that I have seen to date. It highlights all of the obvious, and some of the more hidden, crimes and malfeasance of the worst malefactors, delinquents and parasites the nation has ever seen. The massive corruption of the federal government is beyond repair, and the Republicans are, as Kunstler says, weak and ineffectual in opposing it. The use of quasi-religious accusations of cis-normal racism, sexism and transgenderphobia are used to divert the mass mind from the massive and profound oligarchic-Leftist criminality in these last days of the Empire.

    “Any one who has common sense will remember that the bewilderments of the eyes are of two kinds, and arise from two causes, either from coming out of the light or from going into the light, which is true of the mind’s eye, quite as much as of the bodily eye.”

    “I actually believe that a set of measures that are understood by the Russians, but may not be visible to the broader world, are actually likely to be the most effective measures in terms of clarifying what the United States believes are in bounds and out of bounds, and what we are prepared to do in response,” Jake Sullivan, US National Security Adviser, told the New York Times this week.

    Mr Sullivan stressed that traditional sanctions alone do not sufficiently raise the cost to force powers like Russia, or China.

    A senior Russian government source said they were anticipating the cyber attacks would come in the form of “large-scale information campaign” aimed at discrediting its coronavirus vaccine.

    Russian officials are reportedly expecting “fake news” around the efficacy of its Sputnik-V vaccine, primarily targeted at the European countries which have given emergency approval to the shot such as Hungary, Slovakia and Serbia.

    Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin spokesman, said he was alarmed by the reports. “This would be pure international cybercrime,” he told state media.

    In his first real foray into foreign policy since taking office in January, Mr Biden this week signalled he will pursue an aggressive stance against America’s foes.

    A simmering feud with Moscow escalated this week when Mr Biden blasted Mr Putin as a “killer”, promoting the stung Russian president and his aides to brand the new US commander-in-chief old and senile.

    I read Talbot’s book “Devil’s Chessboard”. It’s good.

    If you have a nefarious spy organization with unlimited money and underworld gangster ties and control over the MSM, it’d be rather tough to extirpate it from the government? I saw that Rachel Maddow was recently parroting the “Russian Collusion” narrative quoting “Intelligence Sources” purporting that the Russians controlled Trump’s Covid 19 response. They’ve got the deranged population all divided and pumped up on real or imagined racial and gender grievances. It’s totally insane.

    Trump is probably knowingly or unwittingly “Controlled Opposition”? Trump doesn’t do anything to help the people economically, but just stirs the pot enough to keep raking in the donations?

    Like all empires, the US empire will collapse in some kind of horrible implosion, or they will start a war? It’s just a matter of timing.

    Excerpted from Jim Goad’s ‘The Worst Week Yet”:

    Jewish Paper Jokes About Shooting Palestinians

    “Jews are accomplished at many things, among them the unparalleled ability to scare the shit out of people for saying anything bad about Jews.

    Though I’m no fan of Muslims… I took a sweet small sip of venomous pleasure at the sight of Islamic activists in New Jersey forcing an apology from the publishers of a small North Jersey newspaper called Jewish Link who’d run a satirical article with the title ‘100,000 Palestinians Shot By Israeli Soldiers.’ The ‘joke’ revolved around them being ‘shot’ with COVID vaccine rather than bullets: ‘doses are being injected by an elite unit of Israeli soldiers, who are specially trained in the use of hypodermic needles.’

    Selaedin Maksut, executive director of CAIR-NJ, gave those satirical Jews a tongue-lashing:

    ‘Suggesting the systematic murder of 100,000 people of an oppressed minority will never make for good comedy. Israeli soldiers shooting Palestinians is not a joke. It is reality. A reality I am afraid the Jewish Link is all too comfortable with. . . . Jokes about killing would never be entertained let alone published in an article had they been aimed at any other minority demographic.’

    Jewish Link apologized, but it wasn’t enough for a spokesperson from American Muslims for Palestine of New Jersey to remind the Jews that there was still much more work to be done:

    ‘This step is the first step; however, in order to rectify this issue, there must be robust and honest conversations within the communities that Jewish Link serves about the reality of Palestinian day-to-day experiences and the colonization of Palestine as a whole.’

    ‘American Muslims for Palestine of New Jersey’? That sounds like a franchise of Ruth’s Chris Steak House located on the campus of the University of Miami at Ohio.”

If their survival depends on it, the something that some people will likely do is to take matters into their own hands, probably at the start on a local scale as the central government collapses into farce and impotence, its reach contracting year-by-year until it reaches no further than the environs of DC. Something like the Afghan national government.

    And it could go that way for a long time, maybe permanently. Many people of a – cough – progressive and intellectual bent spent the last five years screaming about incipient fascism in the US. They were either mistaken or delusional or dishonest. Fascism in the German and Italian and Japanese forms was imperialist and expansionist, but I think that what will come in the US will be the contrary.

    Given that the manufacturing backbone of the US was transplanted to China and Mexico, there’s no way for the US economy to support and supply the American military in a prolonged large-scale war. Everyone knows this, including the Chinese and the Russians and any other prospective shot-caller. And so the so-called American “empire” has been rendered a shell, with hundreds of military bases scattered hither and yon, held together by a massive and massively expensive navy and air force. No way for it to survive with its supply lines coming out of Chinese territory should the Chinese mount a direct challenge (and even if they don’t). And this goes for the American “empire” within the continental US.

    The Chinese have got the US by the short ones which was amply illustrated by the debacle over PPE when the covid epidemic bit down. All that stuff was made in China and they were using what they produced for themselves. Same situation with a multitude of other critical items, especially semi-conductor chips. As you well know there’s currently a global shortage of this product. Seems that some companies like Huawei have been doing a bit of hoarding.

    When the western Roman Empire went tits up 1,500 years ago, its various provinces went their own way, governed by tribal war-bands, some recently from outside the borders, some that had been resident inside for generations. That’s the most likely template for the US IMO.

    • Tate March 23, 2021 at 3:00 am #

      Not just semi-conductor chips. All types of commodity products are in short supply now. Can’t get quality cowhide for example I’m told w/o paying a fortune. You have to go to Belgium to get it but it’s unavailable. What’s the cost of living going to look like in 6 months? I do hope the U.S. stays together because there would be a lot of scores to settle if it doesn’t. The Armenians & the Azerbaijanis got along well until the Soviet Union collapsed. Many others.

    • tucsonspur March 23, 2021 at 3:25 am #

      In just a few more decades things are really going to get dicey, with resources getting extremely scarce. China’s leadership is visionary and preparing, the Belt and Road Initiative being a good example. It is wise to remember that the Chinese could very well afford to lose more than half a billion people to annihilate say, 360 million of us.

    Do you think that it’s possible for a Society to Party its way out of a historical crisis?

    In the book “The Fourth Turning” the authors posit that American History is cyclical and that every 80 to 100 years there is a huge historical crisis precipitated to some extent by generational moral decay and that the young conservative generation stoically sucks it up, tightens their belts and rises to meet the crisis and restores the Republic. The cycle then repeats itself. The last such heroic generation was the “GI Generation” during WWII.

    Well…that’s the theory….

    The body count has reached ten in Boulder King Soopers (Krogers) shooting. Motive unclear at this time.

    • Ron Anselmo March 23, 2021 at 12:48 am #

      This does not, and would not happen, in North Florida. Too many legally armed citizens. Shooter would have been taken out post-haste.

      Lefties have disarmed Boulder – read the stories – they all ran & hid – as they’ve been conditioned to do – their only option.

      I repeat, not in North Florida. Over.

      • Tekapo March 23, 2021 at 1:30 am #

        I can’t recall a single mass shooting in the US over the last decade where a good guy with a gun has been around and stopped X number of deaths by being on the spot, armed, and ready. There may be one or two – but in general – having an armed populace has not lowered the body count in the overwhelming percentage of events, AFAIK.

        • Ron Anselmo March 23, 2021 at 2:35 am #

          Are you serious? Yeah Tekapo, it doesn’t generally make front page news. I wonder why that is. Completely ruins the narrative don’t you know?

          In addition, the “overwhelming percentage of events” take place in target-rich – soft target environments, i.e., “gun-free” zones.

          OK, second-grade class, by a show of hands, can anyone tell me why that might be?

          Mass shooters are insane, but they’re not stupid. Would you hold up a gas station in North Florida, with 2 or 3 armed customers in line

          Moral of the story: Known armed citizens not only stop shootings – being known – they discourage shootings.

          Of course the opposite holds true. Known disarmed citizens encourage shootings. Make sense? You’re smarter than that T, think about it.

            Are you serious? Yeah Tekapo, it doesn’t generally make front page news. I wonder why that is. Completely ruins the narrative don’t you know?

            LOL I love it – when someone (like me) puts up a cogent argument, they always resort to the “mainstream media are corrupt and biased”.

            You still cannot name a single mass shooting where the presence of someone armed and competent stopped it – or even reduced the fatalities.

            You make my very point for me – mass shootings occur where there are soft targets – or at least unarmed ones.

            The only solution is to make the ownership of high-performance weapons completely and utterly illegal. For those MAGA tattooed deplorables who still want to go out and slaughter Bambi’s mother – okay – a 22 rifle is sufficient for that. Always has been.

            The whole POINT is the elimination of high-performance and military-style weapons … what part of that sentence do you fail to understand?

          • Tate March 23, 2021 at 3:08 am #

            I did know a guy in high school who killed a buck down by the river with a .22 long rifle with iron sights. That’s not recommended. Kinda like bow hunters, they leave too many wounded animals. You don’t know much about firearms, do you? Also, tough titties, dummy, no gun confiscations for you at the present time.

            LOL I’ve heard that argument from gun-nuts for years … decades. So we should allow the presence of high-performance weaponry because if we don’t there might be the odd mother of Bambi out there who might only get wounded.

            Give everyone a break … this is the stupidest argument for HP weapons ever made – but it gets a good run – Ill give you that!

            Yet another leftist talking point splattered across the blog.
            Shooting Deer and Boar with a 22 is outlawed in many states because it leaves the animals alive long enough to put serious distance between them and the hunter. Or in the case of boar hunting they come right at the hunter and cause serious injury and death.
            So when they do bleed out they are often not found.

            Shall we ban all swimming?

            But wait, there have been drownings in bathtubs. Shall we ban all baths, mandating showers only?

            But wait, in the shower, someone could potentially die of a slip ‘n’ fall.

            No – you’re making it difficult for yourself to sound rational. You do understand that car smashes and drownings are accidental – while mass shootings are deliberate violence?

            Anyway – you make my point for me – over the past 50 years cars (and roads) have become hugely safer – both through legislation and market forces – and saved countless lives.

            Removing all AR assault rifles and the like from the landscape would stop the lethality of mass shootings.

            My argument is straightforward: ARs are only used to kill human beings in combat situations. They are not required for slaughtering all the harmless herbivorous critters of America – like Bambi’s mother.

            Even wild boar are at an extreme disadvantage when faced by a hunter with a simple pea-shooter or shotgun. Or make a sport of it and use bow & arrow or crossbow.

            Tekapo – As I understand it, the ultimate goal, now according to our alleged President, and the other imbeciles, is “saving lives”.

            Ready? if you eliminate all cars & forbid all swimming, will you save lives? It’s a simple yes or no question.

            Maybe you should just stay in bed. It’s relatively much “safer” there. The real world is a dangerous place. You have to be wiling to accept some risk.

            Personally, I’ll take a dangerous freedom over safe slavery, any day.

    From AlterNet:

    President Donald Trump vowed revenge for those who refused to support the “big lie” that he won re-election, and one of his first targets is Brad Raffensperger. The Georgia Republican Secretary of State stuck to his guns and the law, refusing to be intimidated by Trump and his minions and overturn the results of the 2020 election.

    Trump has found a candidate to primary Raffensperger: a pastor and far right wing Republican U.S. Congressman from Georgia, Jody Hice, who is one of the 147 Republicans who voted to overturn the results of the election.

    It will be interesting to see how much clout Donald Trump retains in his post-presidency. I expect it could be quite a lot. But there again, a good percentage of Georgians (even Republicans) probably support the position that Brad Raffensperger took in respect of certifying the Georgia election results, and standing by them.

    Who knows – anyway, it could all be interesting for 2022.

    So you have rich people with bad character.

    And you have poor people who think these rich people with bad character are never the less the Bees knees because their budget for soda pop and crackers alone is 500 dollars a week . Glamour , and shit.

    Gee , what could go wrong ?

    Like , I think 911 was a conspiracy.

    The conspiracy was that the CIA and the FBI aren’t that good.

    I suspect if you doled out the policing job by lottery / conscription , like they did in ancient Athens , you might not actually be any worse off.

Head shots, stabbings, hangings, chainsaw amputations.Working in the ER is fine but that is a controlled environment.Have you ever picked up a head.?They’re damn heavy. OD’s with the screaming Mom is horrible, What can I do? Narcan? Maybe.

        Illegals from all points on earth massing at the Mexican border, literally tens of thousands of them. Apparently, Sleepy Joe and his people didn’t see this coming; they’re acting like it’s a total surprise. Arriving with no visa, no passport, no money, no English language skills … where will they all go, what will they do? Sleepy Joe plans on putting many of them up in hotels, but what about the 100,000 homeless citizens living on the streets of Cal.? Who’s putting them up in hotels?

          Have you seen the videos being snuck out of Tijuana. Tent city to an unbelievable degree. Guess what is going to happen when these people say “Screw it, let’s go.” And bust over the border.

          That stupid Biden tells them during the campaign that they are all going to come in, then when they get here, tells them not yet, you have to wait until we have facilities. Do you think they are going to say, OK Joe, whatever you say? No way in hell. Migrants interviewed said as much.

          Those tents are coming with them, tent cities are about to explode in all the blue states.

          Another thing, all the folks from everywhere are being shipped here by the globalists. China number one, China has found out that they can conquer the US by just moving in and buying everything. The US population will jut roll over and give the country to them. Heck, half the country hates the country anyway.

          A big question is what is the other half, the Deplorables going to do.

          How about if the Deplorables all move to Mexico, a lot of expats are doing that, and just trade Mexico for the US, bringing all of them up here. I think Mexico could be better ground now than the US anyway. I do not hear Mexicans continuously rioting and killing each other.

            We should annex the northern hundred miles of Mexico, build the fence there, and keep the immigrants there. There’s your new state [ maybe just a new territory til we get things straightened out ].

            There ya go, Messi. At last. Leave the Bible alone and just talk from your gut like this more often.

            Many are the men whose guts are fine but their heads filled with mush and their hearts corrupt beyond all things.

            Imagine if Trump had never consulted with anyone and had just let loose?

      Actually yes I have and also retrieved various other body parts.
      Highway 126 between Ventura and Santa Clarita was at one time the most dangerous stretch of road in the lower 48 states.
      Saw lots of accidents and stopped to render aid several times.

      I also helped hold a mans guts in while in the Navy in Venezuela that was a mess and horrible my best friend on the ship was the corpsman we stopped to render aid after the man was run over by a large truck.
      That guy got me into more messy bloody situations than I even like to think about.

        No wonder Obama said corpse man! He never met a White soldier he liked except perhaps the cucked prince, Harry, once shanghaied by Me Gain.

        CA-126 had the nickname ‘Blood Alley’ for a while. It was part of one of my 100+ mile bike routes. Once, while I was on-bike eastbound and nearly to I-5, some schmuck in a passing LaBombaMobile threw a 12-pack of empty bottles out the window at me. Missed by a mile, but the message was clear.

      Stelmosfire – Reminds me of a family member who took a walk in the center lane of an interstate at 3 o’clock in the morning. He was overtaken by an eighteen wheeler. The truck was disabled and the truck driver couldn’t sign the accident report because he was so upset. Of course, they picked up that dude in a number of bags over 800 feet of accident scene, but had enough to get a blood alcohol level of .43 . I had known for 15 years that guy was a functioning alcoholic, but when I called him that his sister sternly corrected me and told me her brother was not an alcoholic; he had a drinking problem. I thought, honey, I don’t care what you call it, it still killed him. God bless the ambulance folks that can do this work.

    Reality?
    Not so much it appears no wonder agent Po is so hard at work propping up the lies.
