Probably the only crime not documented on Hunter Biden’s laptop is murder, though given his dad’s position in government, and given the desperation building over unfriendly forces currently deciphering said laptop like a Rosetta Stone of the “Big Guy’s” corruption, and given Pop’s access to the Intel Community and its various rogue workshops, who knows who might have got whacked along the Bidens’ road to perdition.

The “president” famously loves and admires his son — “the smartest man I know,” he’s said — but every once in a while, in those infrequent lucid moments between breakfast and the morning “lid” on his imperial duties, “Joe Biden” must smack himself in his Blarney Stone of a head wondering how the hell did that meshugganah kid of mine manage to lose that goddam treasure-map of a laptop! And just as quickly, the fugitive thought floats away like a soap bubble…. It’s easy to play dumb when you’re already senile.

Perhaps “Joe B” dimly senses the dark presence of the Deep State pussyfooting closer and closer to his zone of special protection. It’s said, for instance, that the CIA enjoys the use of Jeff Bezos’s Washington Post for molding public opinion to suit its agenda… and that lately the newspaper has joined the FBI-chummy New York Times in disclosing that Hunter’s laptop may, after all, not be the hobgoblin of “Russian disinformation” that fifty former Intel nabobs said it was… but rather… a thing… an unbelievably toxic hairball stuck in the Deep State’s craw — considering that however much the Deep State is disparaged, it at least is supposed to protect its government myrmidons from taint sufficient to keep them in their useful offices — and Gawd knows what else in the way of vile secrets will get upchucked behind that hairball.

Rumors have it that Merrick Garland’s DOJ is conducting an investigation of Hunter Biden’s tax quandaries. They must be wicked complex. In the case, for example, of monies exceeding a billion dollars transferred from CCP-connected companies to Hunter’s Rosemont Seneca Investment firm, was Biden-the-Younger a mere fiduciary? Or did those funds make a trip to some Baltic State laundry, where they got washed, rinsed, and delivered to the personal bank accounts of Hunter, Uncle Jim, Uncle Frank, and Dr. Jill? If memory serves, the much-maligned Rudy Giuliani probably has those laundry tickets.

The fabled Hard-drive-from Hell apparently contains evidence of felonious misdeeds other than tax evasion ranging from treason, bribery, and wire fraud, to child sex-trafficking and the use of Air Force Two in the commission of crimes. That leaves AG Mr. Garland on a hot spot of dreadful discomfiture. Does he call off the dogs on that vast bone-pile of perfidy and just “laser focus” on some rinky-dink tax charge — and then face the wrath in ten months of a sure-to-be Republican majority House and Senate capable not just of impeaching his ass, but making criminal referrals on it? Or is compelling evidence of high crimes going to be spewed all over the land by those aforesaid private-sector sleuths poring over Hunter’s hard-drive, in a way that the AG can only ignore at the risk of his own reputation… or maybe even a year in some federal slammer for obstruction of justice?

Kinda depends a little bit on what sort of commotion special counsel Mr. John Durham stirs up if-and-when he gets around to indicting any of the superstars of RussiaGate — many of them former and current DOJ and FBI personnel — because when that happens, the odor around Mr. Garland’s department will be so pungent that prosecutors will have to work the Hunter case wearing industrial-strength, full-face, carbon-filtered respirators.

In short, is the dear Deep State fixing to throw “Joe Biden” overboard in a play for its own legitimacy, as if it is actually looking after the nation’s interests? At some point, even ghouls and spooks have a certain survival instinct. And all that might kinda depend on whether President Vlad Putin of Russia happens to disclose what exactly his soldiers found when they captured the numerous “bio-research” labs that ringed Ukraine’s former eastern provinces near the Russian border. Hunter Biden’s companies had an ownership position in those labs, which were actually run by the US Department of Defense jointly with (who else?) the CIA. The wildest stories are circulating about the labs — like, they were developing horrific designer plagues targeted specifically at genetically Slavic people… to be spread by loosing infected migratory birds into the Eurasian skies… say, what…? When, exactly, did American foreign policy turn into something out of a Marvel Comic?

Anyway, in case you’ve forgotten, the Biden family melodrama is actually a sideshow to the main event in the center ring right now: the collapse of Western Civ, starring the USA as a once-promising beacon of liberty and decency, now reduced to the equivalent of a homeless fentanyl freak gibbering about gender Marxism in history’s gutter. The scaffold of the economy is collapsing, helped along by “Joe Biden’s” foolish bid to disrupt global banking arrangements, boomeranging right back in Western Civ’s chops, as the supply lines to every conceivable precious commodity from fertilizer to rare earths — with oil in the middle of all that — get recklessly severed. Isn’t it bad enough that we no longer make anything in our country; now we don’t even have access to the stuff we might need if we ever actually considered making stuff again? On top of that, no food for you, O nation of whimpering simps, lost in your Tik-Tok raptures of virtual orgasm. March of 2022 sure was a humdinger. And, of course, April always begins with a joke, before the serious fun starts.

    Wouldn’t it be great if they just came out and told us this “election” of Biden was all one big April Fool’s joke all along? Then they would reveal the real results of the election and Trump would take his post to get us back on track of business as usual. That would be grand!

    • Disaffected April 1, 2022 at 10:08 am #

      The election was intended as “smart” humor, all the rage in Hollywood story telling these days. If it has to be explained, that means it didn’t work. The smart one’s among us were smiling and nodding ironically all along and admiring the audacity and ingenuity of the perps. Unfortunately, for the lion’s share of the audience, the joke went right over their head and left their hair parted neatly in the process.

    • Night Owl April 1, 2022 at 10:18 am #

      The Rednut Liberal should be along any moment to remind you that it was the most transparent election in US history.

      Business as usual is what got us into this mess to begin with, business as usual was the dumping of trillions into the stock market to protect the wealth of the 1% where they made billions off the virus, so let’s dump the “business as usual as a bad nightmare that it really was”.

  2. megabeth April 1, 2022 at 9:45 am #

    My hunch is that Hunter and Ashley Biden’s negligence with their respective personal chronicles is a cry for help. What a crappy set of parents they had.

    And whatever is going on in our foreign policy probably only serves to cement the internal power and holdings of our kakistocracy. Our steward who moves and thinks like a tree sloth is still being shielded by the whores in the press.

    • Night Owl April 1, 2022 at 10:21 am #

      It truly is something. After four years of mostly fake news about Trump, the public begins to accept that the current [p]resident is a pederast and pedophile who showered with a minor and felt up children on television, and whose corruption may be greater than any previous president (elected or not). His son, ofc, may even have outdone him on all of those counts.

      How is this family even real?

        Visit the Mob Museum in Vegas. You will see the Biden Deep State mobsters predecessors in action. Gaining control of government has progressed from local and state control to federal control. Like prohibition, when good times become scarce, the Mob moves in to control things.

        Jill must be dirtier than we know, because there is no reason to put a husband who doesn’t know where he is or what he’s doing, through all this to protect him. If he went to prison he wouldn’t even know the difference.

          President Joe Biden is so deluded that he actually believes he is controlling the destruction of our country.

          Biden would be completely oblivious to his incarceration if his prison cell were decorated to resemble his current fake White House set.

          • cowbell81 April 1, 2022 at 11:55 am #

            Haha, that reminds me of when they built that fake set in the White House basement to film the latest Coronavirus happenings. It had those fake windows in back that actually made it appear you were looking at the outside lawn and trees.

            Does everyone else remember that? What ever happened to all of those fake stage props, and how come we don’t clearly see these being used any longer?

            There was some talk in the media the other day about Biden’s departure on MH1 as staged, something about the trees not being properly placed on the White House lawn.

          • Disaffected April 1, 2022 at 1:37 pm #

            Lots of strange happenings in that WH basement over the years. To wit:

            That reminds me of the day down in the basement of the White House several months after the Iraq invasion. Bushy, Cheney, and Rumsfeld were down in the President’s “play war room,” so called because the Joint Chiefs had a 3-D room sized “battle map” of the mid-east – rather much like a model train layout without the trains – made up for the president to fuck around playing army on. Bushy was totally lost in his eight year old fantasy world, with his two inch toy army miniatures spread out all over the place, mouthing shooting, explosion, and airplane noises – the whole bit – while Cheney stood by with that sinister grin on his face that made you sure he was secretly thanking his lucky stars to have landed the second most powerful job in the world next to such an easily manipulated infantile moron, all the while feigning that he was actually listening to the equally incoherent and paranoid Rumsfeld blather on incessantly about the many permutations of “knowns, unknowns, and simply unknowables” that he had wisely considered in his many analyses of whatever the fuck it was he happened to be analyzing at the moment.

            This had been going on all morning following the President’s daily national security briefing, where Bushy had embarrassed himself and Condi Rice by spontaneously blurting out the word “STRATEGERY!” in the middle of her briefing in response to nothing in particular, prompting a hurried bathroom break, as had become the norm for poor Condi whenever she was flustered, or, more often than not, just trying to suppress her laughter at the incredibly sophomoric antics of the dim-witted president. No one was quite sure if the president was suffering the after effects of his many years of alcohol abuse or whether he was just still reprising his role as the class clown, but in either case, it was obvious that the always gushing Rice had a real soft spot for his antics, idiotic as they were. All of which pointed toward another rather uneventful day in the bowels of the West Wing, when who should walk in but Douglas – “Dougy” as all of the President’s staffers had taken to derisively calling him – Feith himself, one of Paul Wolfowitz’s particularly egg-headed underlings at DoD and technically an underling of Rumsfeld’s as well, one of the key academic “architects” of the whole Iraq fiasco, and pretty much totally persona non-grata in the White House for his grating personality and outspoken criticism of the administration’s execution of his Iraq invasion plan. Tommy Franks, the General in charge of executing the Iraq invasion, had famously called Feith “the dumbest fucker on the face of the earth,” never a glowing comment coming from someone so obviously in a position to speak authoritatively on the subject.

            Feith had been warned repeatedly to stay out of the West Wing unless he had official business to conduct, and even then, to always be accompanied by his boss Wolfowitz; but like an unsuspecting fly being drawn by forces unknown into the spider’s web, the absent minded academic would often lose himself in thought and wander within the kill zone of Cheney, Rumsfeld, and their many minions. I could see the hairs on Rummy’s neck stand up from across the room at the mere sight of Feith, and when Dougy went straight over to the president and started offering strategic play warfare advice, even making not so subtle digs at Rumsfeld himself while within clear earshot of the old curmudgeon; I braced myself for the inevitable. Rumsfeld, who still maintained the champion wrestler’s physique of his days back at Princeton and was rumored to be a big fan of the movie “Fight Club,” went visibly taut like a pit bull eyeing a poodle, while Cheney, who had always exercised a sort of mind control over the impetuous Rummy, turned his gaze on the inept Feith in what clearly seemed to be a mental radar lock-on for the Feith-seeking missile that Rummy was poised to become.

            And then it was on. In an instant, the incredibly spry Rummy had poor Dougy in a headlock on the floor and reduced to a limp mass of blue-faced flesh, seemingly intent on squeezing the very life essence out of his hapless prey right then and there. What was truly amazing however, was the similar grace and quickness with which the normally sloth-like Cheney followed, lagging Rummy by a mere microsecond in arriving at their mutual target to add severe insult to terrible injury, relentlessly kicking poor Dougy in the ribs with all the glee and abandon of a drunken redneck biker in a gay bar fight. Bushy, caught up in his military play and never the sharpest knife in the drawer anyway, paused for a moment to process the whole scene, barked like a hyena, and then fell rolling on the floor in a fit of hysterical laughter, eventually pissing himself for what turned out to be the third time that week.

            That might have been the end of the line for poor Dougy once and for all, when who should walk in but first lady Laura Bush with a big tray of milk and cookies for Bushy and his play pals. Upon surveying the carnage in general and Bushy’s soiled trousers in particular, she flew into her by now well-practiced and perfected rage, prompting Cheney and Rummy to beat a hasty retreat like two junkyard mutts caught digging in the first lady’s flower garden, leaving the hapless Feith on the floor in a gelatinous mass of fresh road kill and poor Bushy likewise in a pool of his own piss with that “oh shit, what do I do now” look on his face, for which those close to him had come to know and affectionately remember him so well. As a handful of Wolfowitz’s flunkies scrambled to scrape the remains of poor Dougy up off the floor and Laura led Bushy away by the ear to yet another tongue lashing of epic proportions, I shook my head and laughed at what passed for American “leadership” in the early days of the “New American Century.” Yeah, that day was a real fucking hoot alright…

    There is no more ‘western civilization’. The USA is probably the most pagan society in human history.

    • Disaffected April 1, 2022 at 10:12 am #

      I’m not sure even pagans are deserving of that abuse. We partake of the most popular religion in the world today. Self-aggrandizement, expressed as wealth/money and power.

      • Amman April 4, 2022 at 7:26 am #

        In short, to be full of oneself based on one’s wealth/money and power, typically over others.

    • Cactus Girl April 1, 2022 at 5:07 pm #

      @shotho: it was the pagans who _built_ western civilization. Everything our now crumbling civilization is based on was invented by pagans. Little things, like democracy, law, fine art… I do believe the dark ages came about after Christianity took over.

      • messianicdruid April 1, 2022 at 8:01 pm #

      “The USA is probably the most pagan society in human history.” As detailed by Cactus Girl… utter ignorance of the European pagan culture, and totally misses the generic definition as well (‘a person holding religious beliefs other than those of the main world religions’).

    The great irony may prove to be that no matter what is revealed, it won’t fix anything.
    Now 74, I’ve had the opportunity to watch, first-hand, the country slide from a promising place to a confused and toxic mess. There is such a thing as “too late”.

        If, as many posit, America is Babylon the Great, you need look no further than Revelation 17 and 18 to see where this ends. On the other hand, if America is part of Israel (due to our Jewish population and the promise by George Washington and the First Congress to consecrate America to YHWH’s will in accordance with Old Testament Law, on penalty of national annihilation), our path ahead will be difficult, but not involve national extinction. My personal feeling is that we are Babylon, and Biden’s pushing the Big Bad Russian Bear could lead to Putin launching a round of hypersonic missiles that will destroy America. That would remove Israel’s big protector and open the way for Gog and Magog to attack Israel, resulting in much destruction. It’s interesting to watch, but also terrifying.

    • Rowdypiglet April 1, 2022 at 12:10 pm #

      I’m afraid you may be right, izzy. What has already been revealed should have been enough and more than enough to arrest, try, and convict the nest of loathesome criminals that infest Washington and the corporate world. Every time we’re made aware of some new outrage, we think “This is it! They’re done for now!” But there’s rarely even a slap on the wrist, and the show just goes on. I don’t expect anything to be fixed at this point, but there will be an end to it. The rot is baked into it and will manifest itself in ways not even the most insulated can ignore.

      Izzy,

      We are of about the same vintage, so I suspect see many things through the same lense.

      I think your last sentence “There is such a thing as “too late’”. Remarkably simple, but profound.

      Personally, I think I’d like to live in what I call my “Norman Rockwell World” if it Ever even existed. Sadly, it’s gone too….

  5. PeteAtomic April 1, 2022 at 10:14 am #

    If you haven’t done it yet, it would be wise to plan some kind of vegetable garden this Spring. And joining a CSA, that is, a Community Supported Agriculture association, if they exist in your area. You can buy shares of locally grown food. Also reaching out to small, local meat producers if they exist in your area. For example, I can buy a half of a hog from a fella. Or chicken, or he’d sell me beef, etc.
    Learn how to can food. It’s not that difficult.

    Not everybody has the means to buy into their own farm or ranch. However, you can start to plug into locally grown sources of food, meat, etc.

    • stelmosfire April 1, 2022 at 10:23 am #

      Local hardware stores, lumber yards and H. Depot have lawn feriilizer stacked to the ceilings about now. 4 step programs for a few hundred bucks,etc Tank trucks will be driving around soon filled with fertilizer and pesticides for the perfect lawn. What a waste.

      • PeteAtomic April 1, 2022 at 10:45 am #

        Yes, I agree! The history of the lawn is rather interesting, actually. It is a sign of affluence, leftover from Britain’s influence on the US.

      Starting my veggie & pollinator garden for the second year in a row. I am hoping that we do not suffer another ‘heat dome’ incident like last year, which stunted and/or killed a lot of my plants. I still managed a pretty large yield, enough to give a lot of squash to neighbors, and to pickle 4 jars of peppers.

      I also had enough basil to make a LOT of pesto, which I froze and used up during the winter.

      Not to mention, gardening is good for the soul.

        Mary queen
        The wife and I also have been gardening the last few years.
        The heat dome at Yosemite west was awful.
        Way to hot and the soil was too acidic or nitrogen filled.
        It ain’t easy but it is both fulfilling and magical.
        The vita mix comes in handy for all the blending and such.
        The only downside is the neighbors are all too old to make change of any kind and this new paradigm shift needs some youth involvement or it isn’t much fun.
        Oh well..

            It is so hot that the grass standby, Bermuda, wilts and dies. Many cactus species do the same. So hot that walking on blacktop in endangerment in bare feet. So hot aircraft are diverted because the runways are too soft and there is not enough Bernoulli’s lift to take off.

            So, I don’t know. Taste is entirely subjective, obviously.

            I know lots of people love okra. I put it in my mouth once and was nearly sick. I seem to remember it being slimy too.

            Not sure if it was worse or better than the only two snails I ever ate in France, as I can’t remember. I swallowed the second one whole with a slug of wine and have never touched another one since. Frogs’ legs, on the other hand, were (as they say …) just like chicken, so the only question is why would you bother? Unless there were no chickens, obviously. At that point I’d go veggie by default. No frogs or insects, thanks.

            On the other hand, I used to love a nicely roasted andouillette, which turns a lot of British stomachs. I once read a thread on a blog where people were moaning about them and they said such awful things (one said they smelled of pee) that they even put me off and I had liked them.

            Sorry if I’ve put anyone off their lunch.

            Just realised ‘slug’ of wine wasn’t the best choice of words in the context.

            Only had okra in a mixed vegetable “Soup Mix” a couple times. Stopped buying it because it was indeed slimy (the whole mix) after heating. Now I know why, I guess.

            There are all sorts of kisses. If you go west from here, there is the Glasgow Kiss, which also has its refinements if you live in Glasgow …

            https://www.slanglang.net/slang/glasgow-kiss/

            It’s generally not very pardoning, though. Maybe that’s the kind of sun-kiss you get in Arizona.

        • Anthea April 1, 2022 at 4:51 pm #

          Okra is probably best in chicken gumbo, in which it is the main attraction. It’s also good rolled in breading of some kind and deep fried. Pickled okra is also really good.

          Okra is also insanely productive in the garden. If you could live on okra, you’d be a self-sufficient farmer your first year.

          If you mainly want the preserve okra for deep frying, just cut it up and throw it in the freezer (in freezer bags, of course).

          As for poke, I get quite a craving for it every spring. It tastes kind of like asparagus, and I used to buy it canned at some grocery stores around 40 years ago.

          I also LOVE mulberries. This is another food that I get a craving for from time to time. I prefer the white mulberries, but I’m not really all that particular.

          • Anthea April 1, 2022 at 4:56 pm #

            Also, if you’ve never tried wild parsnips, you are missing out. At the house I just moved from, wild parsnips were thick along the roadsides. You dig them during the winter or very early in spring. They are exquisitely sweet and flavorful.

            Jerusalem artichokes are also pretty good if done as roasted vegetables and heavily seasoned. (There is an indescribable weird taste to them that needs camoflage.) This is another vetable that is insanely productive. These also grow wild in my area.

        I used to live in a seaside town called Port Townsend. It’s so cute that the city has trademarked every last rhododendron bush. All the former working class houses have been Victorianized and what were originally front yards have been planted wall to wall with vegetables. There are so many tame deer wandering around that all the yards are fenced right up to the sidewalks. The deer even use the state ferry system to travel between islands. Fortunately for the deer, all the new agers who have bought up the houses are vegetarians.

        It’s too bad that everything that could have been a model for the Long Emergency has to be turned into a theme park and proximity to Seattle week-enders ushered in the million dollar shack.

    If there is a future, and it somehow supports historians, they will sift through the rubble of what was once called America and marvel: “How could corrupt families like the Bushes and Clintons and Trumps and Bidens have gotten away with plundering the country and breaking every conceivable law in plain view?”

    They may even find Jim’s weekly columns on an intact hard drive and admire how he collected the details, put them in order, and explicated them for a readership that still clung to the hope that something might be done about them.

        We’ve been, for a good while, in the position of having to choose the lesser of the evils. I don’t think Trump is a fine example of a human being, and in less desperate circumstances I doubt that I’d vote for him. I don’t think you can be in the hotel/casino business in cities like New York and Las Vegas without criminal ties. He’s probably out of the picture now as far as holding office again, but he remains a king maker of sorts. He had a couple things going for him, in my opinion. He has a big ego that needs to be fed, and he doesn’t want it associated with what he’d think of as a loser country. When we look good, he looks good. That motivates him to be on our side and promote our interests; he’s not a globalist. He doesn’t want his country to embarrass him by losing. The other advantage he has is that he isn’t in the club and he makes his money through hotels, not armaments. Insurance doesn’t cover the losses when hotels are destroyed through acts of war, so he has no reason to promote conflict and every reason not to.

      • Not_GeorgeT April 1, 2022 at 11:50 pm #

It’d be a screaming shit-show, and overrun by self-serving delusional politicians and right-wing pundits, all rushing to his defense.

          I just laugh my head off when I read here about how Biden is supposed to be incoherent etc. Have any of you actually LOOKED at any recent interviews with Trump on TV? Blithering, incoherent idiot is too kind a description.

          It’s funny you rant that it’s “30 years of unbalanced leftist BS” when it’s, in fact, the last 40 years (since Reagan) that the long-standing balanced, centrist, community-focussed mode of government in the US has been progressively undermined to the point now where the ‘community’ is little more than two warring factions. Each faction thinks the other one is crazy, when, in reality, it’s actually the nutjob ‘conservative’ cohort that has lost its mind. The evidence is so obvious now, when you look at how the GOP Senators and Congresspeople vote and generally behave. Then there’s the blazing evidence of crazy – Lauren Boebert, Majory Taylor Green, Matt Gatez, Hawley Cawthorn…I could go on, but it’s too depressing.

    Thanks for today’s article, James. I always wish I could share your optimism that there is some shred of accountability for those ghoul lawbreakers at the top, but having not seen any evidence of that for 25 or so years, I’m not very hopeful. Still, there IS always the political infighting aspect which means people can be thrown under busses, etc., I suppose. So a girl can still dream.

    And when heads of intel agencies show up in hearings outright lying (see: the Gaetz interview of FBI’s Assistant Director of Cyber Security Bryan Vorndran), it’s quite evident things have taken quite the bizarre turn. I mean, at this point, we all know about Hunter Biden’s laptop – especially that it exists. To be in denial of that now is just silly. It was surreal to see THE FBI guy who obviously knows all about it pretending it doesn’t exist:

      Hunter’s laptop? You have to see it from the point of view of perverts. They had it, but they didn’t want anyone else to have it. It’s the classic motive for murder: “If I can’t have her, nobody else will.”

    CONGRESSMAN TRIES TO REVOKE SECURITY CLEARANCES: Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) introduced a resolution to remove security clearances from officials who “lied” about Hunter Biden’s laptop. More than 50 national security and defense officials signed a joint letter calling the scandal “likely Russian disinformation.” Subsequent investigations by law enforcement are ongoing, but multiple media outlets now corroborate the information. (AC: The national security officials, including former Secretaries of Defense and Directors of Central Intelligence, signed the letter during the 2020 election’s “October Surprise.” Revoking their clearances may not be possible, but their public credibility is now in question. Current and former U.S. officials’ stance further indicts the legitimacy and capability of the national government. – D.M.)

    Great post today, James. Hairball is the perfect word to describe the Hunter Biden mess. I’ve had a few questions about this thing since the story first broke. Why would Hunter be kicking back 10% of his ill-gotten gains to his dad, “the big guy”? Usually people of Joe’s stature and age are looking for ways to get money out of their estate and pass it on to their hieirs. Was he simply acting as a go-between, passing the money on to fund The Deep State?
    It seems likely that Hunter woul have eventually sobered up and realized he’d left a ticking time bomb in a computer repair shop. I wonder if someone working for The Deep State stole it, and planted it there. Do we know anything about the shop owner? Maybe his business is a front like the one The Man From U.N.C.L.E. passed through every day on his way to the office?
    Finally, I would agree that Merrick Garland is in a pickle, but I doubt that he will ever be indicted for anything, much less spend even a day in the slammer for obstructing justice. After all, Loretta Lynch was caught red-handed meeting with Bill Clinton while Hillary was being investigated, and she’s now enjoying her retirement with a full pension, as are Hillary (destroyer of evidence) and Lois Lerner (weaponizer of the IRS).

    • JohnAZ April 1, 2022 at 10:47 am #

      These people know they have a lock on the entire Deep State including the DOJ and judiciary. They do their corruption thing with no fear.
      Marijuana legalization is moving up in the House. The Progressive Dems are moving forward on the legalization of drugs, one of their prominent desires. Their constituents want cheap drugs.

      CFN represents a relatively conservative group. The “American People” are moving away from “our” perspective with each new illegal and new socially educated graduate. We are losing the battle right now. Watch the ex pat rate.

        Oh no, the evil cannabis. Perhaps we should revisit prohibition in regard to alcohol too. (You don’t drink, do you JAZ?) If I remember correctly, prohibition worked great the first time we tried it. Let’s outlaw tobacco too while we’re at it – stinky damn deathweed. How about sugar? Kills more people than cannabis. “Sugar, you’re fired!”

        Let’s put as much business in the hands of criminal gangs as we can. Real businessmen who know how to get the job done.

        Speaking of weed, I think I’ll spark one up right about now, get in the car, run over some people, laugh my ass off, then play some crazy piano at somebody else’s house. C’mon JAZ – I’ll let you ride shotgun!

    Somewhere along our way as a nation males began to be raised as female companions for mommy while maleness itself was treated as a toxic nuisance better replaced by government agencies. In essence, no Boy Scouts of America, no male exclusive organizations for maintaining standards of responsible male behavior re the “opposite” sex — uh, such as gender specific athletics.

        Here we go, where you and I agree.

        The matriarchal family is a product of the Black Community. I have always noticed that Black athletes all say Hi Mom and not Dad.

        Brave single mothers are standard operating procedure in the Black community. Men are not raised to be Dads, ensconced in gangs, and impregnating women on the whim. I am stereotyping a large percentage of the Black community, mostly urban, because they deserve it. There are Black males, where honor is taught to them by Dads that matter, that succeed in life. They are scorned and “Tomed” by the other gimme community.

        • Jarek April 1, 2022 at 12:58 pm #

    “gibbering about gender Marxism in history’s gutter”

    Yesterday our U.S. State Department proudly began issuing new passports with “X”-Gender”. The TSA is planning new updates to its body scanners.

    Here’s an interesting link:
    https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/need-passport/selecting-your-gender-marker.html

    “Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI+) travelers can face unique challenges when traveling abroad. Laws and attitudes in some countries may affect safety and ease of travel. Approximately seventy countries consider consensual same-sex sexual relations a crime, sometimes carrying severe punishment.”

    • BackRowHeckler April 1, 2022 at 10:52 am #

      One wonders just how many weirdos and freaks who call themselves ‘Transgender’, actually exist? I’m reading .006% of the population, but for all the media, government and cultural attention they get you’d think they were at least 50%. I think this whole Tranny phenomena is a red herring, but what’s the purpose?

      • TaxDonkey April 1, 2022 at 11:11 am #

        The purpose is demoralization and demolition of the “dominant” culture so that what you have left is a bunch of splintered special interest groups all fighting for a piece of the pie to be doled out by the central authority.

        I think there are a few competing purposes, and not everyone in on the tranny thing is aware of all the angles.

        That reminds me, I read a piece where a guy argues that the people pushing the trans agenda aren’t all pedos, they are more into separating kids from their parents influence:

        “I’m seeing a lot of people on the right share this meme. While it may be a strong satirical response to those who get lost in nuance, it fundamentally fails to recognize why the left wants to talk to your kids about sexuality. Let’s connect some dots. ? 1/23”

          A long time ago, when the Department of Education was created, critics said that that power shift would allow the government to program our kids like 1984 automatons.

            I’ve been seeing more and more nutty men in the schools speaking out, since Disney has exposed the issue.

            Some kindergarten teaching freak worries that he won’t be able to talk about his social life to the kids.

            I cannot recall any of my teachers in the early grades, feeling the need to talk about their personal lives much at all.

          • Blackbird April 1, 2022 at 8:39 pm #

            First day of kindergarten, somewhere in the toxic waste dump identifying as “USA”:

            Modern women are only really comfortable around fags, or men made over in their image. Thus to get women, men become soft and then wondered why they get frend zoned. Mating isn’t a comfortable process after all. And most women aren’t attracted to women with dicks.

          • MaryQueen April 1, 2022 at 11:17 pm #

            Jarek, what you’re missing is, some women are more comfy with gay men because they are sick to death of being hit upon, and gay men are males that won’t hit on us.

            It’s really not that complicated, and it’s gone on forever.

            If ‘real men’ have sissified themselves to sneak into women’s favor, that speaks ill of them – not women.

        Leaving aside the motives of those who are promoting transgender, those who call themselves trans are weak minded, troubled, mostly young people who catch this the same way they caught the recovered memory, Satanic Ritual Abuse fad a while back. Every other confused kid suddenly thought they had a reason for feeling disaffected and angry: they’d been abused and had forgotten it! I knew someone who got caught up in that at the time, a troubled kid who didn’t fit in and thought she now knew why. She’d been given (by a school counselor) a list of questions which, by her answers, were supposed to reveal whether or not she was a victim. The questions were along the lines of “have you ever had a bad dream,” “do you feel sad sometimes,” “do you argue a lot with your parents,” “do you want to stay in your room,” “do you feel unconnected to your peers?” If you answered “yes” to a half dozen of these questions, it was proof you’d been abused and didn’t remember it. Like all such things (including especially the trans delusion) it became monetized and was an industry, with lots of people making money from pushing the belief on vulnerable kids. The trans madness is also now an industry, but it’s a lot more malignant than ritual abuse or anorexia. Those were delusions one might possibly recover from and heal, but having your body parts cut off is forever.

          I was briefly acquainted with a girl, about 25, who insisted that she be called “he”, “him”, “dude”, just one of the guys…

          She – because that’s what she was, and presumably still is – was (probably still is) in a relationship with another girl who also was trying to turn into a guy. So, a pair of lesbians want to be gay guys. Fine, have at it. Like going to a cosplay convention and never leaving.

          There was nothing masculine about this girl – except maybe her clothes. Her hair – a self-inflicted butchery – and her piercings – they hurt to look at (were you attacked by a ninja?) – were “feminine” in that weird twisted modern way. Her personality, feminine, nervous, brittle, prone to hysteria and depression.

          In short, she had no idea what a guy is, yet she insisted she was one. Messed up kid. I treated her as if she were normal (other than avoiding pronouns), she didn’t need more disappointment or confusion in her mad sad life.

    Republicans- I remember how well before Trump, on any conservative site that allowed comments, or any other site for that matter, any concern for the off-shoring of everything was met by claims that Americans benefitted from cheap consumer goods. I personally have done a few informal surveys of Americans, and I couldn’t find a single one who was glad to find cheap junk from China crowding out quality merchandise.

    Oh, and there was also the part about “robots”. Americans couldn’t expect to have jobs, because of robots. Except the offshore jobs weren’t being performed by robots.

    We can’t come back from this without a real vote, but we can’t vote our way out either.

Lots of people were saying that as countries like China become more prosperous they will eventually embrace some form of democracy. They obviously were totally wrong. They also said that the U.S. was becoming a service economy as if everyone could or wanted to work in an office or in a low-wage retail job.

      • Beryl of Oyl April 1, 2022 at 1:12 pm #

        Nobody ever thought to ask how the news media knew that we were going to be a service economy.

    Well, if Hunter goes down the world is losing a great artist. It’d be like when Jackson Pollock — another human train wreck — bit the dust in a drunken auto accident on LI.

    Hey, it looks like Russia is laying down it’s own sanctions. Yes, ‘Unfriendly Countries’ are now required to pay Russia for oil, coal & natgas in rubles, not dollars or Euros. It looks like whoever has the most natural resources, and the willingness to exploit them, comes out on top. Germany doesn’t have many natural resources, and is an ‘Unfriendly Country.’

      Could it be a plan?

      • SW April 1, 2022 at 11:29 am #

        What other explanation is there? I can’t figure it it out. Michael Hudson in an interview stated that refusing to acknowledge Russia’s sphere of influence in Ukraine (which even Obama did) is a scheme to raise oil prices by knocking Russia off market and raising grain prices for the same reason. Making millions for the commodities market.

        “America” to the people who appear to be running it and the rest of the West, are only markets to be manipulated. Russia is not a concept to Putin — it’s his homeland and he’s prepared to defend it. It’s hard for me to believe anyone can look at him or read what he’s said and think he will ever allow Russia to be exploited or threatened with no consequences.

        • SW April 1, 2022 at 12:03 pm #

          This article appears to support that interview:

          https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/ending-russia-energy-leverage-by-simon-johnson-and-oleg-ustenko-2022-03?a_la=english&a_d=6245d1353260b82c6f28f224&a_m=&a_a=click&a_s=&a_p=%2Fsection%2Feconomics&a_li=ending-russia-energy-leverage-by-simon-johnson-and-oleg-ustenko-2022-03&a_pa=section-commentaries&a_ps=&a_ms=&a_r=

          “Putin underestimated the horror and fear that his invasion would create, particularly in Europe. Even worse for him, the United States, Europe, and their allies have all the tools needed to end Russia’s energy leverage. Importers around the world are shunning Russian oil and gas. Europe, certainly, will never again risk its national security on Russian energy imports. Consequently, Russia will soon be finished as a major player in world energy markets.”

          • Paula D April 1, 2022 at 1:55 pm #

            LOL, that is hilariously deluded.
            No one will buy Russian oil and gas? They are lining up to buy it.
            Lavrov is in India as we speak, making a deal.
            Meanwhile Germany is screaming in agony from losing the gas Project Syndicate declares they don’t want.
            Who knew you couldn’t insult Russians, fire Russians from their jobs, make it illegal to use the letter “Z” and steal money from Russia without consequences?
            That’s not fair!!

          • Hereward the Woke April 1, 2022 at 2:27 pm #

            Sorry, SW, but that article is garbage. Putin knew exactly how the West would react and planned accordingly. He’s been stockpiling gold for years and building trade links with other nations. Europe, and to a lesser extent, cannot live without Russian commodities – not just oil, natgas and wheat, but also fertilizer, palladium, nickel, etc. As as for “importers around the world shunning” Russia? BS! 60% of the world at least are not participating in the sanctions. This is the rubbish I expect from the Economist, FT or other NWO mouthpieces.

          Their planned LNG scheme will enable them to make bank off elevated prices in the US and Europe.

          That 10% off the top will be much larger in absolute terms.

          The LNG scheme also has many more stages where they can grift by charging additional service fees.

            The plan is to wreck the U$ – and its bitches, if any stick around. We – in the person of the Big Guy – shot ourselves (I mean, the rest of us) in the wallet, intentionally.

            We, the people of the west, are too expensive. We eat into the profits of the plutocrats. We will be got rid of and our assets seized – for our own good of course. I think somebody wrote a book about it recently…

            The world economy is a hot-air balloon and the plutocrats are skimming the remaining skin (real assets). The world economy is a lot faker now than it was in 1929. We ain’t comin’ up from this one.

        John, if we knew the answer to that question, we could change our names to God. Some days I think it’s just total arrogance and stupidity; others I believe it is all part of the Great Reset and bringing down the global economy. It’s hard to believe these people can be that stupid, nevertheless, history is littered with incredibly stupid and deluded leaders. Japan seriously thought they could beat America; likewise with Hitler taking on Russia. If on the other hand it is all part of the plan, I believe they have bitten off more than they can chew. They will fail. However, there will be a lot of “collateral damage” in human lives and treasure.

        • SW April 1, 2022 at 3:29 pm #

          I posted the article as an example of what is being written and as confirmation for what Hudson said about America and the EU trying to push Russia off these markets to increase prices (blame the war) and reap the profits. According to him, that was the plan.

          India and China last week refused to cut ties with Russia and agree to the US sanctions. It sounds like they’re whistling past the graveyard with the “we have all the tools we need to end Russia’s energy leverage.”

          Here are the two buffoons that wrote it :

          Simon Johnson, a former chief economist at the International Monetary Fund, is a professor at MIT’s Sloan School of Management and a co-chair of the COVID-19 Policy Alliance.

    “Does he call off the dogs on that vast bone-pile of perfidy and just “laser focus” on some rinky-dink tax charge — and then face the wrath in ten months of a sure-to-be Republican majority House and Senate capable not just of impeaching his ass, but making criminal referrals on it?”

    I wouldn’t be so sure about that Jim. The Republicans are part of the Cabal. Remember Obamacare? It took a conservative Supreme Court Judge to push it thru. Remember how the Republicans got elected on repealing Obamacare? It was John McCain who overrode the repeal.

    There is no left vs right or conservative vs liberal politician. They are two sides of the same coin. Nothing is going to happen to Joe Biden or Hunter Biden.

      One of the many delusional lubricants that grease the American System and have so far kept it sliding is the notion that there are two opposing political parties that engage in elections to determine future policy.

  22. SW April 1, 2022 at 10:42 am #

    I think if Biden just read off the teleprompter, presented a benign, reassuring grandfatherly face to the media and kept his mouth shut then Hunter would remain protected. But threatening Russia with regime change and pretending to be a virile, strong, alpha-male figure when he’s turned loose for a moment is too much for his handlers to handle. He’s gotta go.

    Maybe Will Smith could be installed? He’s in the news a lot for a scripted slap that’s getting him and Chris Rock lots of free publicity. All he has to do is act presidential. A comedian is the point man in Ukraine, so why not him?

    Here’s a bit more mental masturbation…

    The real power, whoever they really are, is removing Joe Biden as their, metaphorically speaking, suicide bomber and he will be replaced by someone coherent, and less likely to fuck up their plans, and blow up on que like he or she is told. EVEN IF THAT REPLACEMENT IS A REPUBLICAN. Did you hear that?

    • Beryl of Oyl April 1, 2022 at 11:00 am #

      The replacement will have the advantage of having everything that needs to be destroyed, in order to be built back better, already destroyed for her.

      She will have no fingerprints on it.

      She can even deplore the state of affairs, but then never actually get around to trying to put it back together again the way it was before Joe wrecked it.

      She will tell the people, “this is the best I can do”, and many of them will believe her.

    So just to be clear. If you’re on Team Schwab at the WEF, this is your plan. First, implement a plan to destroy your all star team (western civilization). Try to kill and maim as many of your own population as possible with “vaccine” program. Declare war on half the American population, the deplorables. Attack the fossil fuel industry. Once your own team is in tatters, start a war with nuclear superpower Russia and do everything you can to escalate the conflict into a nuclear confrontation. Then start threatening sanctions against China, India and pretty much the rest of the world. Make sure that your magic wand (the dollar) goes flaccid. After all this, you’ll ride your solar powered magic carpet into the sunset and you’ll enjoy an eternity of tranhumanist nirvana while feeding off the energy of insect-eating digital slaves. What could possibly go wrong?

  25. JohnAZ April 1, 2022 at 11:02 am #

    Reality is a bitch.

    Jobs report came out positive today.

    Trump had this country juiced up employment wise before Covid hit. The government shoved us into a recession, especially the service sector, and we lost millions of jobs. The government then rewarded folks for staying home to the point of creating an inflation bubble. Resistance to returning to work is still in place.

    It makes me sick to hear Biden claim responsibility for the uptick in jobs, when it is solely the response to the end of the gimme programs. What is the response going to be when Powell’s manipulation of the Phillip’s curve starts unemployment up to control inflation.

    He says that inflation will subside when wages and employment go up. It is obvious that he and his advisors skipped Econ 101.

    Comments up to this point leave me with a sense that your readers don’t believe these damn culprits will face justice. However, recall that our original revolution, driven only by a small minority, was able to extinguish the oppressive Crown based colonial system here. Its agents then abandoned their possessions and fled to Canada and England. History demonstrates we do not require a majority on board to have a revolution that brings needed change. Revolution, while a blunt instrument, is the ultimate public weapon when government fails to deliver justice.

Even on just one issue, that of teaching kindergarten kids to be trans, it’s obvious few parents want that. I’d argue that, once they’ve actually seen the materials in question, you’d be hard put to find any parent who would endorse it. Yet their “revolution” is proceeding apace and, whenever they meet a defeat, they return invigorated. They never stop, and never tire, and that – I think – is the difference. The men who broke away from the Crown were an entirely different breed. I don’t think we’re making them anymore. They were used to and unafraid of hardships of all kinds. They expected to make sacrifices and were willing. We are not of their calibre, at least, I see no evidence of it. That, of course, goes for the far left as well. They’re spoiled, weak, and debased, but they’re zealots with unlimited persistence for their cause. Real physical hardship would quickly finish them off, but until we see that, I don’t see us making anything like a revolution out of our small numbers.

        They started gaining ground when they persuaded Americans that there were emergency exceptions to our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

        We are in a situation now where we are hoping that someone who thought it was just fine to lock up Americans and even seize there property, over a cold virus, is going to lead us out of this.

        The Red State/Blue State narrative is a myth. DeSantis in Florida tried roadblocks to stop Americans from getting to their winter homes, because somebody told him he could.

    Can anyone suggest a website that provides a concise list of all the failures, frauds, disinformation, treachery, ect., that our government has foisted upon us over the past years?

    I’m looking for “just the facts”….not a conspiracy theory site.

    I have searched for “reasons to not trust government” and I’m not finding what I’m sure is out there somewhere.

    This list would include the following kind of thing:

    Hunter laptop, Burisma, CIA/FBI collusion, Steele dossier, causes of inflation and specifically liberal/democrat policy that has increased energy prices, focus on gender issues, Afghanistan withdrawal, supposed Russian involvement in our government. election fraud, Hillary’s email server, you get the idea.

    • cowbell81 April 1, 2022 at 11:51 am #

        True, but a person could compile quite an extensive list by scrolling through several CFN postings. Every so often JHK will have a paragraph so stuffed with incidents and names that it’s hard to read without choking to death. And a quarter of them are incidents and names that haven’t been mentioned in a while, and are in danger of being forgotten.

        Like, what about that IT guy that wiped and crushed Hilary’s hard drives after setting up her secret server? That’s just one of the little people who should have been prosecuted.

    Well, ladies and germs;

    The Forward Observer today posits;

    ARMY BRIGADE READY FOR WAR IN EUROPE “WITHIN ONE WEEK”: Sen. Inhofe (R-OK), ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC), questioned General Tod Wolters, Commander European Command, on the effectiveness of Army Prepositioned Stocks in support of U.S. Forces deployment to Europe in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Gen Wolters replied that the Army Prepositioned Stocks were critical to being able to move a U.S. Army Brigade Combat Team into theater and have them ready for operations within one week. (AC: Prepositioned stocks of heavy equipment, such as tanks, armored fighting vehicles, and trucks, have been in the Army and Marines inventory for decades. The equipment is normally held at forward facilities or staged on large roll-on-roll-off ships to enable quick delivery to potential conflict zones. In this case, the 1st Brigade Combat Team (BCT) of the 3rd Infantry Division (ID) deployed to Germany and began live-fire training in less than one week. The 3rd BCT/4thID was also ordered to Europe on March 23rd. – M.M.)

    …Nothing to see here folks…move along….

        Comment for you.

        Two problems for expatting to Mexico. It is a step back in time in most places, if slow governmental response irritates you, watch out.

        The second is the language barrier, okay in expat areas. One person said it well, if you want to get the best bang for your buck, learn Spanish.

        In your research, make sure you include good and bad watching you tube.

        • neurodoc April 1, 2022 at 4:37 pm #

          Thanks for the info; I’ve heard about the sluggish govmint in Mexico and Uruguay. That could be an issue if I try to start some sort of clinic. The second issue re native language fluency I agree is of paramount importance. I’m now relearning spanish intensely, after having 2 yrs of the ‘spanish language’ in college (many years ago) that were worthless.

        Someone at this site got really made at me when I mentioned that my gun-owning friends were the first people who you’d be able to turn to in an emergency, one because of their willingness to help, and two because they knew how to help.

        Yes, I have friends still quite skilled in the old ways, and what a great resource to have, to turn to for advice on all things related to getting along when the going gets tough.

        I think the key word here is self-reliance. You see those two things going together a lot, guns and survival skills, and no, they are not “survivalists”. just men and women who know how to take care of their families.

        • neurodoc April 1, 2022 at 4:50 pm #

          I can’t image what moron would have issues with you having survival friends who have guns. Such morons will surely become food or sex toys (or both in reverse sequence) as things fall apart rapidly. Many people seem to assume that the ‘rules of civil behavior’ will hold when hoards of people are hungry and angry and foraging for survival. What’s coming is NOT the last depression of the 30’s (with at least some people helping others and a degree of civil organization). What’s coming is the savagery prior to the world made by hand. Does anyone really think that we can get from here to a localized world of smallness and cottage industry without massive bloodshed and savagery? Between here and there, people aren’t going to be sitting around sewing, whittling, knitting and singing cumbyhah; they’re going to be prepping HUNTED food, tending injuries, and cleaning guns and reloading for the next wave of raping and pillaging marauders. Its just the history of humankind.

          Knee milling is a type of milling machine, one with a bed that can be raised….the vast majority of milling machines are “knee” type.

          Depth of cut can be gotten two ways…from the quill, or from the knee action.

          “a Bridgeport was indeed a machine”

          Technically, it is a V-Ram Turret milling machine, with a knee, of course. Bridgeports are great for prototyping and other one off work in the shop…not so good for production work, however.

      That’s an adjustment I’d actually enjoy watching. Gen Z and millennials are the most helpless group of people who have ever infested this planet. Years ago, my Dad used to comment on the loss of practical knowledge and the ability to make and use things. When he was growing up, men commonly had all the skills with which to build a house, and women had their own extensive set of necessary skills. Dad built his own house, plumbed it, wired it, made all the light fixtures and door latches by hand – and none of these things were skills by which he made his living, but he’d acquired them in the process of living a full and interesting life. I’m absolutely convinced that Gen Z and millennials would die off in vast numbers if deprived, for even a few weeks, of those little screens they look at 24/7. They’re helpless as babies and ignorant as swans.

      • neurodoc April 1, 2022 at 5:15 pm #

The thing I love today is you can figure out how to anything yourself on the internet and the younger folks are the best at it. I fix stuff on my car by watching younger tech savvy mechanics doing instructional youtube videos. Do you really know many? IMO the biggest challenge of growing old isn’t disability but egocentrism and a loss of touch with anyone different than ourselves. I see it constantly among my parents and their cohorts.

      There is an entire range of low to medium volume boutique manufacturers serving the classic car industry that could adjust course and repurpose to a more generalized effort to rebuild US industry.

        You think police chases are bad now? Wait until a cop decides to shut down the vehicle in front of yours on the highway.

        Also, lithium, REQUIRED in massive amounts for EVs, is in peak supply mode. Also, for the green people, one pound of lithium mined requires that 500,000 pounds of soil/earth/trees be mined–i.e. dislodged/destroyed. Then massive electrical energy is needed to fully refine it and make it into battery form.

        Also, on average about 50% of electricity in the US (varying slightly state to state) is produced by gasoline or petro products. EVs are a pipedream of the libtarded.

        • JohnAZ April 1, 2022 at 7:52 pm #

          Lithium is just one resource. Nickel is in short supply.

    LIfe Site News

    An Austin, Texas school teacher said that of the 32 fourth-grade students in her class, 20 have “come out” to her as “LGBTQIA+,” according to a leaked internal school message.

    The claim reportedly came from a teacher at the Austin Independent School District (ISD)’s Blackshear Elementary School, according to the Daily Caller, which originally obtained the internal messages from the “Libs of Tik Tok” Twitter account.

    The teacher’s revelation came as part of a complaint that Blackshear Elementary School principal Rick Garner referred to the morning’s Pride Parade — an ISD-wide celebration of LGBTQ sexuality and gender — as a “wellness walk.”

    “I feel that it is inappropriate to call our parade this morning a ‘Wellness Walk’ at all. While I understand that Wellness Walk is something that was previously in motion to promote health and fitness and is something we want to continue, it really takes away from the experience of celebrating Pride to couple the two,” wrote the teacher, who has not been publicly identified.

    “The first Pride was a riot,” wrote the teacher, apparently referencing the Stonewall Riots that inspired the first gay pride parades. “It is not enough to just ‘welcome,’ ‘love,’ and ‘celebrate’ Queer folx. Your allyship should always lead you to activism — speaking up and fighting for what is right, even when it feels uncomfortable,” the teacher continued.

    She went on to write, “Out of the 32 students that I teach, 20 of them are LGBTQIA+ and have come out to me. I feel that we need to do better — for them. To affirm our students, I think it would be only appropriate and right to publicly announce what we had this morning was a PRIDE Parade. Our students are aware and are paying attention.”

    Jarek: Only about 2/3. She’s not satisfied. She wants ALL her kids to be good kids.

          She is fighting from the Traditional pov. She sees, correctly, that Feminism is part of what got us here.

          Radical Feminists dress in a distinct fashion, sometimes overtly male if they are of the butch persuasion. So they helped popularize the blurring of the sexes and their roles.

          Of course one could argue that they didn’t ask to be as they are. The homosexual men as well. Thus compassion would allow it to go back to being a private affair,
          a personal lifestyle or vice, and struggle – not something to be celebrated. This is the tack Putin has taken.

            The world would immediately be a better place if all of us, not just misfits of one sort or another, would recognize and practice the concept of “private life.” Strangers (and, especially, children whether known to you or the children of strangers) don’t need and shouldn’t want to know about your sex life or private interests. I’m sure most everyone here remembers knowing absolutely nothing about their teachers’ personal lives. We still referred to female teachers as “Miss” or “Mrs.” and therefore knew whether they were married or not – and that was ALL we knew. Out of this complete lack of information, no drama of any kind was possible and none ever occurred. What mitigates against that happening, I suppose, is the seizure of public space by narcissists who began by forcing their intimate details on us and now demand that we affirm them.

            Believe it or not, the Austin school system is a mess. The mayor Steve Adler was deep blue and kept them closed for over a year, then only a partial return with masks, distancing, things called “pods” where if someone in your pod tested positive (no sx of course) then you had to quarantine for two weeks.

            I’m not surprised by this story. Wouldn’t it be great if the teachers were as enthusiastic about teaching their students a love of literature? the scientific method? My grandson is in this school system and in advanced physics. His teacher told him when he hit a snag, not to ask any questions of him (the teacher) b/c he needed to figure it out for himself. This man draws a salary.

            Homosexuals (born that way) made the mistake of being too inclusive and allowing the trans to piggyback on their successes.

            They also started that surrogate parenting nightmare.

      Here in Idaho, some brave reps & a senator tried to get Bill 675 going, it criminalizes doctors for performing genital mutilation on kids. It passed the house, but died because no senators would take it up.

      That’s where we are: Dems and Repubs – even in red states – refuse to pass legislation that protects kids from genital mutilation.

      I was also hoping a side effect of that bill might have been to stop forced circumcision, too.

      • Rowdypiglet April 1, 2022 at 1:44 pm #

        I’ve idly wondered what would happen if some of these practices were challenged in court as a result of being adopted for other than the presently approved purposes. For instance, what if a doctor cut off someone’s legs because they asked him to, saying they couldn’t bear to live with legs and felt that nature had made a horrible mistake. Would the same people who support genital mutilation support the doctor and would doctors then have free rein to cut up living persons at their request? If they objected, how would they attempt to get around objecting to a mutilation that is in no way distinguishable from the mutilation they support?

        • Jarek April 1, 2022 at 2:28 pm #

          There is such a condition, but I forget what it’s called. One patient convinced his doctor to get him some acid or drano to put in his eyes. He went blind and felt immensely relieved since his eyes were not part of him. God help us.

            Apparently it’s because the Jews inundated the American medical profession and just started doing it without any comment or even asking in some cases. One guy wrote about how he almost got in a fist fight with the doctor about it. Very weird indeed.

            The URL you loaded, Blackbird. No bueno: tinyurl linky stinky. 500 blah blah.

            Regarding “…the unkindest cut of all…”: a sad Jewish acquaintance remarked “The only way to lose a foreskin is to wear it off”.

            Islam in the Philippines, once dominant, has been prety much confined to Mindanao and environs for hundreds of years. Catholicism, introduced by the Spanish colonialists, is sitll dominent but threatened by the well-financed evangelists and new DIY types.

            Still, all the boys get the cut. If you are not circumcised it is considered shameful – as though you are too “puluvi” – too desperately poor – to afford the operation. They call uncut fellas like this writer “supot” which translates as “baggy” but with a pejorative connotation.

            Here in Indonesia the Christians (around 10% of the pop, and heavily geographically-weighted) all seem to go for it as well. Only the Hindu Balinese refuse to go under the knife, the same as they refuse other cultural and religious attacks.

            A very sweet, self-confident five year old in the house where I’ve lived a decade knew what he was getting into, but had no choice, Islam being totalitarian. I observed how he started regarding all the adults with alarm and mistrust just after the op.

            “So this is how you treat me?”

            It is deeply traumatic. My theory is that circumcision is the inescapable message of the culture you are inculcated in telling you “This is what we can do to you. Submit”.

            A college friend of mine – head of a “skeptics” group, remarried in his 50s, in central Texas. Then he found that his new wife, also a late middle-ager, refused to have sex with him unless he got his pee-pee carved up. When he mentioned this is an email I shot back “Oh I presume his buxom bride got into the spirit and had herself mutilated as well”.

      Kids under 11 or 12 are, by definition in developmental medicine, called latency aged. Their sexuality is LATENT. They have no true sexuality in terms of sex drive and mating, hence their LATENCY. To make them think they must choose their sexuality in the 4th grade (age what, 9 or 10) is anti-psychological, anti-biological and anti-neuroscience. ; i.e. simply stupid and lacking in knowledge of human development.

      • JohnAZ April 1, 2022 at 7:32 pm #

        Yup!!!

        The real question is what are the perverts trying to accomplish? IMHO, they are trying to get their indoctrination in from pre-school on. They are on a power drive, like everyone seems to be. We need more Democrats, we need more LDS, we need more whatever.

        How insidious are they? Enough to corrupt one of the best kids things in history, Walt Disney. The real super hero here is Ron DeSantis.

        BTW, sexual role modeling happens at age 7 – 10 depending on maturity and age of puberty. The perverts know they need to get in there before the boy or girl starts to model after their same sex parent and peer group. This IS an attack on parents.

        Yes, fools rush in where angels fear to tread. Leave the kids alone. Let the parents decide what and when to tell them. Maybe after they get curious? And only as much as they need to know at their psychological level – which will vary with the child even at a given age.

      That’s why you take your kid out of school.

        Chris made a scripted remark about a movie famously played by Demi Moore, who had a shaved head, not baldness. Jada also had a shaved head.

    Thank you for the awesome post Mr. K and happy Friday to you, and to CFN!! Merrick Garland it would seem is definitely guilty of weaponizing the justice system against parents who disagree with critical race theory in their children’s curricula as just one example . Obviously he believes deplorable children should be indoctrinated rather than educated, however, his family has a substantive financial stake in enforcing CRT since his son in law’s firm creates school curricula imbibed with racism. And don’t forget that he presides over a justice system that is directly involved in human rights violations and crimes against humanity in their persecution of the Jan 6 protestors. The truth is that probably most people in “Joe Biden’s” orbit are deeply corrupt and compromised. Jen Psaki is fleeing to MSNBC lol. Makes sense since it is all an intel operation.

    For a person, especially a woman, to have a condition which causes a loss of all hair, Jada Smith should feel very fortunate to have an exceptionally well-shaped head.

    My wife went to vocational school to learn cosmetology. One of the skills was hair cutting. She has been cutting my hair every month or so for the past 30+ years. She never misses the opportunity to tell me how flat the back of my head is. I had never even noticed it until she mentioned it. Now I am paranoid about it.

    “The ‘president’ famously loves and admires his son — ‘the smartest man I know,’ he’s said…”

    And Mister Resident just might be right and honest when he says his son is the smartest. But this is more of a reflection on the kind of people The Resident knows and hangs around with than it is a statement about the intelligence level of The Resident’s closest family grifter.

    “The fabled Hard-drive-from Hell apparently contains evidence of felonious misdeeds other than tax evasion ranging from treason, bribery, and wire fraud, to child sex-trafficking and the use of Air Force Two in the commission of crimes.”

    When this drive was previously examined by certain individuals in dark rooms, no one saw anything strange or unusual in there at all. That also says something more about the level of ethics and sanity of those who poked around this smoldering smoking gun than it does about the sewer pit of material the drive contains.

    “When, exactly, did American foreign policy turn into something out of a Marvel Comic?”

    Actually, US foreign policy is more like something out of the Book of Revelation. Or something you might have seen years ago on ‘Alfred Hitchcock Presents…’

    ‘GOOD-EEEVVVVEEENNNINGGGG…, AMERICA!…’

    “Isn’t it bad enough that we no longer make anything in our country…”

    We make plenty of stuff in this country. Outrage and Wokesters to start. Children confused about which of the 81 sexes they are. And lots and lots of Virtue Signalers.

    We are drowning in anger and confusion and millions of people who live without useful purpose all trying to Out Woke and Out Signal each other and Out-Outrage each other each day.

    And we make more debt. Lots and lots of debt from fake ‘money’ conjured out of the dust of the wind and treated like useful currency. Actually, the dust of the wind has more actual substance and usefulness.

    “March of 2022 sure was a humdinger. And, of course, April always begins with a joke, before the serious fun starts.”

    People think that’s ‘Groundhog Day’ when we live the same day over and over. But not any more. April Fool’s Day is the new Groundhog Day, when we live the same Clown World Fools Day absurdities and assaults upon the human family over and over every day of the year.

    There are two major problems that stand in the way of any of this hard evidence of wrongdoing, lawbreaking, and moral and societal depravity ever leading to even the slightest rendering of “justice”.

    The first is the hard to argue fact that the judicial system has been corrupted pretty much totally and certainly to the point that even the “Supreme” Court doesn’t even want to do its job anymore, unless the subject matter is something sublime and superfluous.

    The second reason is the real deal breaker, and it is that so much of the general public simply doesn’t give a damn about anything they can’t eat, drink, smoke or stick their peckers into and so anything goes, nothing really matters, and no one really gives a damn!

    April is the cruelest month, breeding
    Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
    Memory and desire, stirring
    Dull roots with spring rain.
    Winter kept us warm, covering
    Earth in forgetful snow, feeding
    A little life with dried tubers.”

    The vernal equinox has passed, and Spring is here, but Eliot doesn’t seem to relish its kindness or its beauty. He counterpoints Chaucer who said,

    ‘When that April with his showers sweet The drought of March has pierced root deep and bathed each vein with liquor of such power that engendered from it is the flower.’

    The paradox is evident with, ‘Winter kept us warm’, that there isn’t really much hope for regeneration even though it’s Spring. Eliot broods in 1922, the War just over. See here:

    “What are the roots that clutch, what branches grow
    Out of this stony rubbish? Son of man,
    You cannot say, or guess, for you know only
    A heap of broken images, where the sun beats,
    And the dead tree gives no shelter, the cricket no relief,
    And the dry stone no sound of water.”

    One can only imagine what Eliot would think today. One also wonders what Sinclair Lewis would think of the world today, this being the centenary year his great work, “Babbitt”. Remember “Main Street”? Think of main street today, more than 100 years later!

    April is an awesome month, with the life force awakening, the passions aroused, the anticipation of sweet spring and summer sex in a field of flowers or in a delightful dell or on a beautiful beach. Follow the Sun, have some fun. The heck with Eliot.

    Trafficking. Unconscionable.

    “Ukrainian company Biotexcom (German ownership) offers a child for 49K Euro.

    Real horror is that women currently pregnant and under surrogacy contract are not allowed to leave Ukraine due to contractual reasons.

    They are herded into underground facilities (dungeons)

    If these kids are born outside of Ukraine, it would be considered child trafficking.

    West is truly fighting for its values in Ukraine.

    Encourage Ukrainian women to become reproductive cattle for rich homosexual elites, turn man into Nazis to protect the farms.”

    https://twitter.com/davidsarac/status/1509823140079321094

    Ukraine is one of the few countries that allows this surrogacy, so it’s a hotbed for this horrific industry with the support of the rest of the west (who won’t allow it in their own countries).

    I had read that Ukraine had a massive child trafficking problem, and this part of it is a piece of the much larger puzzle.

        It seems quite likely that the Ukraine is one of the few places where white children can be thus bought.

        Last night I watched an excellent video at The Last American Vagabond, hosted by the too loquacious and somewhat irritating (but he has gotten a lot better) Ryan Christian.

        But the guest lineup was unbeatable: Alex Thomson, Vanessa Beeley, and Eva Bartlett.

        The reason I mention this is that after a long and very informative program the wrapup topic was “Any predictions?”

        Beeley discussed the issue that she sees as a central unacknowleged problem, namely, the insertion of basically white jihadis (Ukrainian Nazis) into Europe. All of those refugees. Many of them are opportunists who have no thought of returning ever to Ukraine. They could become a huge problem for the EU countries that have taken them to their bosoms.

    Whitey on the Moon
    Song by Gil Scott-Heron

    A rat done bit my sister Nell.
    (with Whitey on the moon)
    Her face and arms began to swell.
    (and Whitey’s on the moon)
    I can’t pay no doctor bill.
    (but Whitey’s on the moon)
    Ten years from now I’ll be payin’ still.
    (while Whitey’s on the moon)
    The man jus’ upped my rent las’ night.
    (’cause Whitey’s on the moon)
    No hot water, no toilets, no lights.
    (but Whitey’s on the moon)
    I wonder why he’s uppi’ me?
    (’cause Whitey’s on the moon?)
    I was already payin’ ‘im fifty a week.
    (with Whitey on the moon)
    Taxes takin’ my whole damn check,
    Junkies makin’ me a nervous wreck,
    The price of food is goin’ up,
    An’ as if all that shit wasn’t enough
    A rat done bit my sister Nell.
    (with Whitey on the moon)
    Her face an’ arm began to swell.
    (but Whitey’s on the moon)
    Was all that money I made las’ year
    (for Whitey on the moon?)
    How come there ain’t no money here?
    (Hm! Whitey’s on the moon)
    Y’know I jus’ ’bout had my fill
    (of Whitey on the moon)
    I think I’ll sen’ these doctor bills,
    Airmail special
    (to Whitey on the moon)

All Xi Jinping would have to do is promise to Crush Whitey and half the US citizenry would welcome the PLA in with open arms.

            I’m also amazed that Jesse Plemons is married to Kirsten Dunst. He’s hella ugly.

            But, of course, there is no accounting for taste.

          • MaryQueen April 1, 2022 at 11:44 pm #

            Interesting tidbit though: I found the 2d season of “Fargo” to be the best, and it was in large part because of Kirsten Dunst’s character. She did an amazing job. And that’s where she met Plemons; they played husband and wife, and then they got together in real life.

            They’re both (seemingly) very quirky people – so perhaps that’s the attraction. In any case, whatever.

          • Disaffected April 2, 2022 at 10:20 am #

            Yeah, that’s one awkward pair. Jesse’s put on a TON of weight, and not surprisingly, Kirsten has too, although not nearly as much. She’s completely transitioned from coquettish young teen queen to adult woman roles now, so she might have some staying power in the biz. Plemons appears in a lot of stuff now too, but I’m always a little puzzled how he gets the roles. He’s not bad, just rather plain.

          • MaryQueen April 2, 2022 at 11:41 am #

            Yeah Plemons has not a lot going for him and his fame is a complete conundrum for me.

          Second that! We had a lot in common:

          “A member of this peasantry, I quit school at age sixteen in the eleventh grade to join the U.S. Navy. I hated school, hated the social class differences in a small town that make life so miserable during adolescence, when one’s community and social status is being nailed down permanently for anyone planning on staying here. As a former young white cracklet I can say with all confidence that when you live with a rusty coal stove in the middle of the living room for heat, your old man smells of gasoline and motor oil no matter how much he bathes and your mom suffers from strange, unpredictable behavior due to untreated depression, you do not much feel like inviting the doctor’s daughter home. Or anyone’s daughter for that matter. Doctor’s son = College, career, golf, nice car and a bimbo. Redneck laborer’s son = Well, if you stay out of trouble, there’s always room for one more broad shouldered chinless pinhead stamping out bright yellow plastic mop buckets on the injection molds at Rubbermaid. Thus, at sixteen and choosing options, I decided that launching fighter jets from the deck of an aircraft carrier to kill gooks and the notion of pussy and booze on some exotic foreign shore looked damned good. When I think about what happened to my boyhood friends who stayed home and put in 30 years at Rubbermaid, my choice doesn’t sound that bad even today. They all became redneck ultra-conservatives, mostly out of some sort of fear and bitterness that I can never seem to put my finger on. But I knew these people in a younger and more hopeful time. I know they were capable of –not to mention deserved — more than they got out of life. Maybe their bitterness stems from that.”

            Thanks. My circumstances weren’t quite as stark as Joe’s, but they were pretty similar in the broad strokes nonetheless. One of the two guys I ran with in HS and the year after ended up doing life in the Iowa State Pen for committing a really stupid drug related murder and the other one ended up languishing in drunken and drug induced mediocrity. I realized at the time I was headed for the same thing if I didn’t break out of it, but that was back when the military could still offer a legitimate step up (1977), which I don’t think it does so much anymore. All of that was certainly fading fast in 2003 when I retired and I know without a doubt that things have only gotten much worse since then.

    (How does one express gratitude?)

    Every newborn child is just another nail in the human fate.

    What is the human fate?
    – To colonize the Universe;
    – to straighten things out;
    – to rectify the bad, bringing good about;
    – to put an end to randomness, bringing order to a chaotic world, you say?

    (If you do, please come closer: see that bridge over there? It’s a bargain; it will be yours by a very reasonable price: your sanity.)

    Human beings are nothing more than state-of-the-art havoc spreaders; they do it using three main vectors: tourism, factories and bombs (the choice being mainly geography dependent.) And aviation is just the quickest way to spread havoc around.

    Why did Nature came up with such a destructive species?
    Because Nature wallows/basks in change.
    And one simply cannot stop Nature (even when one is somehow able to stop him/herself.)

    (How does one express gratitude?
    By not thinking too much about anything.
    By being as carefree as one possibly can.)

    World War Z is a strange war, in that the gloves appear to be on. Apparently tactics like strategic bombing of urban targets and massed infantry and armor assaults are off the table. Oh, there are casualties, and property is being destroyed, but nothing like 1914-1918 or 1941-1945. Of course it could get worse as the war grinds on. (And indeed might be spreading, as trouble is brewing once again in the former Yugoslavia, also between Azerbaijan and Armenia.)

    During the American Civil War European armies sent officers to America as observers. One British officer commented on how similar the Union and Confederate armies were, speaking the same language, worshiping in the same Protestant churches, with the same national antecedents, that he could hardly tell them apart.

      Ironically in my copy / translation of Sun Tzu’s , ”
      The Art of War ” the FIRST SENTENCE is ;

      ” There has never been a protracted war from which a kingdom has benefited. ”

      You mentioned Yugoslavia.

      It is as if America came to the conclusion one day ;

      ” Those Serbians , Bosnians , and Croats have the right idea ! That’s what we should do !

      Endless wars and endless pretexts for those endless wars ! That’s the ticket ! ”

      ( Though it seems to me that two tiny countries fighting over 5 or 50 square miles of territory right next door , makes a lot more sense than a country that covers four times zones fighting over real estate it doesn’t really want. )

      The American Civil War ?

      Yes , you could scarcely tell them apart.

      And their respective causes were likewise pretty boring.

      One side wanted greater centralization ,

      The other side wanted to uphold or expand subsidiarity.

      Not good movie material , unless maybe you think things like organizational charts are fun.

      So a cause with some pep was needed.

      It couldn’t be that cause would totally muddy the waters ,

      and such muddying of the waters might eventually turn out to be an intractably thorny ambiguity for BOTH groups of White People ?

        The thing that jumps out at me regarding American propaganda concerning Ukraine is ;

        First it is , ” Those poor Ukrainians ! ”

        — followed at most two minutes later by , ” The longer it drags on the better FOR US. ( Not the Ukrainians. )

        The same thing that happened in Afghanistan.

        And they haven’t the foggiest clue why the Afghans now hate Americans as much , or more than , Russians.

      Strang as well because other than NOT being in the ME and NOT having the US as the prime antagonist, it’s pretty much just like any other “war” going on these days. I think DC is just jealous that Russia’s taking the lead on this one. Maybe China’s turn will be next?

        Good Saturday morning!

        I believe that what we are seeing from both Russia and China is a strengthening of their borders against boots on the ground invasion.

        Tibet with China and East Ukraine with Russia.

        Compare them with us. It is why I know the Deep State, and yes this time the Dems only, are going to destroy the USA with our open borders.

        I really do not understand.

        This AM. Russia consolidating to East Ukraine and turning over the Kiev area, including Chernobyl to Ukraine. This is confusing. If Russia really was the devil and trying to take over Ukraine, why have they not bombarded and stopped weapons shipments in the West and not gone all out in the East including Kiev.

        Right now, things are strange, what is Putin up to?

        • Disaffected April 2, 2022 at 12:29 pm #

          Wha’sup JAZ! Read the Saker for updates. They’re letting Kiev stew in its own juices for tenderness, while they prevent Ukie reinforcements from moving east to reinforce the Donbass, for what is sure to be a messy and bloody final showdown. They don’t want to destroy Kiev because they don’t want to rebuild it later. The strategy appears to be to wipe out the Ukies once and for all in the east, so that resistance appears to be futile in the west, and the lion’s share of the knuckleheads simply give up. All the while keeping large force elements fresh in reserve in case NATO decides to get froggy elsewhere, which might still happen as well. Never discount DC’s ability to do something really stupid to widen the conflict even further. They’ll fight to the last Euro to protect the mighty (former) globalist hegemon across the water.

          • Disaffected April 2, 2022 at 12:35 pm #

            To add: Putin still hopes and envisions that this can be a relatively small neighborhood conflict – a family fight with a drunken brother-in-law, if you will – while still realizing that the US desperately needs it to be a much larger regional conflagration that will drastically weaken Russia and the Euros as well. Time will tell who’s right, I guess. My money’s still on Putin. He’s still got the only level head on the world scene.

          • MaryQueen April 2, 2022 at 12:52 pm #

            Thanks for the update. Where do you get your info?

            Sounds like what Scott Ritter was saying, that they want to extract the Azov battalions and wipe them out.

            And Putin has always proven to be patient, that’s for sure.

          • Disaffected April 2, 2022 at 1:43 pm #

            I just read all the various Saker updates and sources. They’re all mostly quite similar, but if you read them all you start to get a more nuanced picture. Putin’s strategy seems to be quite conservative and methodical for now, with the US and NATO trying to force his hand to act more rashly. Hopefully wiping out the Azovs – who has been trying to evacuate key leadership from Mariupol over the past few days – will settle things down again.

          • BackRowHeckler April 2, 2022 at 2:01 pm #

    Speaking of culture shock —

    Sobran uses the term ” Liberal ” about three or four dozen times.

    But , notice that the people he is presumably referring to , rarely or never refer to themselves that way anymore.

    Why ?

    My theory is that ” Progress ” , from which we get , ” progressive ” , has always been a word with a vague or nebulous meaning.

    Ultimately , what is or is not , ” Progress ” depends on your point of view.

    Ultimately depends on wish , want , whim , desire , preference , like or dislike.

    Arguably , in contrast , ” Liberal ” is far more denotative than connotative.

    Arguably it has something like a concrete empirical definition.

    Arguably , for example , bitch – slapping someone because they said something you disliked would be a lot harder to label as , ” Liberal – like “.

    Another example ; what is ” Liberal ” about compelling a 12 year old by force or threat of force to wear a mask on account of a germ that has a fatality rate of less than one percent ?

    ” Liberal ” seems to imply some set of principles you are obliged to stand by , even where terribly inconvenient to do so.

    But ” Progressive ” can mean ………..anything at all.

    Great name for an insurance company I suppose , when we all know that at least half the time insurance companies do not have your back , and do not pay out no matter how legitimate or modest your claim.

It’s just that too many now see the fucking state and its puppets as the one true director; the only one to really trust, ultimately. If Fow Chi says “mask up,” they mask up. If “Joe Biden” says “food shortages coming,” they say “Thanks, Gramps, we’re stocking up, but not too much!” If gas prices rise, they say “Putin!” cuz the dictator in diapers has revealed the truth.

      For added background:

      “In 2019, Zelensky announced a partial withdrawal of forces from Donbass. His soldiers revolted. He went to Zolote to speak to them. Azov troops told him they wouldn’t let him pull back. Here he is getting chewed out by a soldier. Later, nationalists threatened to kill him. ”

        • Disaffected April 2, 2022 at 3:08 pm #

          I read it as Zelensky actually isn’t in charge over there and he can’t make any peace agreement with Russia for fear his own troops won’t honor it and he’ll be exposed as a Us puppet. At that point he’d no longer be useful to the US and bad things would likely happen to him in fairly short order. He’s in a bit of a spot.

            Borrow from the Mafia and rue the day. Hire vicious thugs and then have them turn on you? It’s an old story. Hope he gets what he has coming from them. He’ll get a pass from the World Court, Interpol, etc.

            Agree.

          • Islander April 2, 2022 at 9:32 pm #

            Joaquin Flores states unequivocally that Ukraine has been a puppet state since 2014, being run by the US State Department.

            He compares it to Croatia as a puppet state of the Third Reich.

            Zelensky is truly between a rock and a hard place. It is definitely good news that he is 99% certainly in Poland, not Kiev;

            In Poland he is under the physical protection of the Poles/Yanks, but also under USA control.

            Probably the best thing that could happen to him would be if the Russians threw an ether-impregnated rag over his face and extracted him to Moscow!

            There, his life would be safe from the Ukr crazies, and he would get a chance to think things through.

        • MaryQueen April 2, 2022 at 6:00 pm #

          Not at all.

          Zelensky seems to have genuinely (perhaps) wanted to effect change in Ukraine but he couldn’t control the Azov battalion nazis. And they call the shots, he doesn’t. That’s what Putin is allegedly trying to put a stop to.

          • Jarek April 2, 2022 at 7:39 pm #

            Yeah, he wanted to make Ukraine into a degenerate, multicultural state, much like the United States and Western Europe.

            And you think this is a good thing?

          • MaryQueen April 2, 2022 at 9:22 pm #

            I don’t really care what he does. I am stating the way things are. You have a hard time distinguishing from reporting and peoples’ heartfelt opinions.

          • Jarek April 2, 2022 at 10:09 pm #

            The way things are? That he “genuinely” wanted to effect “change” in Ukraine? What do you mean by change? You mean like what Obama wanted to do? You actually think he’s good because NAZIS BAD and anyone they are against must be good?

            Again, I think they are only nazis in the pejorative sense of being thugs. Of course liberals think all nationalists are thugs. I don’t know if you think that or if you even know what you think about that. You won’t define words after all, usually content with mere pejorative or school yard connotations.

          More St. Joe’s basketball history:

          St. Joe’s was like this year’s St. Peter’s, a tiny Jesuit school but a B-ball (lovable underdog) power. In my junior year St. Joe’s went undefeated in the regular season and made it to the final 4 of the NCAA Playoffs. They lost that final 4 game badly to Ohio State but then played a “consolation game” against the other final 4 loser, Utah, and beat them 127-120 in four overtimes. In a sense you could say St. Joe’s finished #3 in the country in 1961. I don’t think the NCAA does consolation games any more.

          There were no Black players on the team and in fact I don’t recall there being any Blacks in the entire student body. No women either. Jarek would have loved it. It was a different world then.

          In the 2003-2004 season St. Joe’s again made it to the final four led by Jameer Nelson and Delonte West who both went immediately into the Pros.

    So, boys and girls … Omicron pater familias, as you know, begat Omicron BA.1 and BA.2 (if I’ve got that right), and now Omicron BA.1 and Omicron BA.2 have been getting up to some incestuous mischief and have begotten Omicron XE, which is, OF COURSE, more transmissible than mummy and daddy were.

    And the best way to avoid getting Omicron Junior is – you’ve guessed it – to get those jabs.

    Now, this bloke here (‘The Science’) is telling us that it’s a no-brainer – nobody that’s fully vaxxed is dying of Omicron (mummy and daddy O), which is odd because in the last Scottish figures that they dared to publish, 478 people had died of covid, up to 4 Feb., and 417 of them (87%) were vaxxed. In England the figure is over 90%.

      As folks have been saying, the answer is to take care of yourself, do not touch much in public, keep your distance from people you do not know, eat well, sleep well,and read CFN on a regular basis.

      Masks are ineffectual as well as the alpha boosters. I actually read a report that the MD stated that number 4 is worthless, based on Israeli info. So skip it.

      All the vaccines is is another hit with s protein. #4 is just another chance to get s protein reaction.

      Good thing the EPA just mandated 49 mpg for new cars sold beginning in 2025. It’s an unattainable goal, which will force people into EVs. You mentioned you saw your first Rivian and the cost is $67,000. The true cost is $83,000 plus a $15,500 subscription. I’m surprised there are Rivians out there, as fewer than 1200 have been released by the factory.

      EVs are a scam. Even Tesla is a scam, as 2/3 of their vehicles are sold in foreign countries where they are heavily subsidized.

      • JohnAZ April 2, 2022 at 5:31 pm #

        Reasons why EVs will just be another Cadillac, Mercedes or BMW. Never a Chevy.

        • JohnAZ April 2, 2022 at 5:44 pm #

          Oops.

          Cost is 3x credible level. Cost is NOT volume dependent as resource limitations will limit possible supply.

          Resource limitations the first order issue. How many cars in the US and the rest of the world? How much lithium or nickel or ??? Is available.

          Electric grid limitations. Politics is killing the potential ability to enlarge the electric grid. Needed to keep up, solar, wind, coal, natural gas, nuclear, hydrogen, all of them.

          Petroleum still needed in manufacture, especially plastic.

          Range limitations, the newest discovery is it may be temp. Dependent in some vehicles. People will be pissed at the range limits.

          I have a Prime Toyota and have discovered a potential problem. “Honey, did you plug the car in last night?”

          Oops, how do I get to work?

          If you want quick charge, 4 – 6 hours at home, $1000 to $1500. Because Prime is electric and hybrid, not a problem. Also, with range.

          The wealthy will always have Happy Motoring. The rest ????

        We’re calling it ‘World War Z’ now DA, for the letter Z prominently painted on Russian armor. Apparently Z is a Russian symbol for victory, but its grown to mean so much more. Several European nations have banned its use — Latvia and Germany if I’m not mistaken — under the penalty of law. The letter Z has become very controversial in the west, like a MAGA hat, or a Confederate battle flag. If your name is Zach you are screwed.

        World War Z, we’re in the early innings.

    Our healthcare system is about to experience a tsunami! Potential side effects of jabs include chronic inflammation, because the vaccine continuously stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies. Other concerns include the possible integration of plasmid DNA into the body’s host genome, resulting in mutations, problems with DNA replication, triggering of autoimmune responses, and activation of cancer-causing genes. Alternative COVID cures EXIST. Ivermectin is one of them. While Ivermectin is very effective curing COVID symptoms, it has also been shown to eliminate certain cancers. Do not get the poison jab. If you want to get Ivermectin you can visit https://ivmcures.com

      Interesting timing with so many leaving ‘healthcare’ due to refusing the jab.

    Read your comment about the plutocrats not liking the Western folks for holding too much wealth.

    It really struck me.

    True unfettered capitalism if taken to the nth degree means that one or two survivors of a niche will survive the battle of competition. It is the competition that controls prices, but when the number of players drops, price manipulation happens. Right? Some sort of control, regulation needs to be put in to prevent the monopolization.

    If competition would be world wide, then the monopolization could be world wide. Plutocrats could drain all peoples dry if world level capitalism took over to its end.

    The greatest argument for nationalism and against globalism I have thought of. The global shenanigans of the NWO are creating a global market right now for petroleum, and we the huddled masses are paying the price.

    • Disaffected April 2, 2022 at 8:49 pm #

      Certainly no coincidence that the popular board game Monopoly that we all grew up playing was and is widely reviewed as a primer in the ways of capitalism for the youngsters to learn from. I guess it’s worked pretty well. They should have added oil field properties as well to heighten the realism even more. Maybe in the next version?

      Entropy

      TLE talks about it. I understand that if economies are broken down to smaller units, the ability of plutocrats to manipulate open capitalism is limited. Globalization is going to be catastrophic for the masses as the PTB destroy the marketplace.

      The NWO must be destroyed somehow to prevent this from happening. Nation to nation competition must be allowed to prosper. Even trade blocs should be discouraged. The more players in the game, the more the good parts of capitalism will work.

      JHK was talking the nationalizing of the US economy being detrimental in TLE. Maybe we have passed that now with globalization.

      Is the seeming elevation of global oil prices a sign of these times?

Luckily from the gitgo I went with Tito’s Vodka distilled in Texas (probably the best out there) so the silly ban on Russian Vodka doesn’t affect production. If it was about 125 years ago I’d be rolling into your town on horse and wagon, selling Marlin William’s Smoothdriver Smoothie Elixer, $1 per bottle, good for what ails you, cures Covid, influenza, diabetes, drowsy, cancers, malaria, you name it.
