As is always the case, history the trickster is taking us to a place we didn’t expect to go. Personally, I don’t lose a lot of sleep over Klaus Schwab, the James Bond villain who runs the World Economic Forum (WEF) and is behind the widely touted Great Reset campaign. The Great Reset proposes to reorganize all human endeavor going forward from the top town, directed by an elite cohort of technocrat commissars, to produce a “green” utopia — mainly for their own benefit.

It’s an elaborate joke, really. The human project is surely going somewhere. The direction is determined not by technocrat megalomaniacs but by the process called emergence, which means a self-organizing reality of more dynamic forces than any coterie of megalomaniacs could hope to control. These dynamic forces are not necessarily hidden; many are working in plain sight and you can make pretty good guesses as to what’s up with them. But they control the gameboard, not Klaus and his legion of economist-engineer nerds.

One of the forces at work is our old friend from physics class: entropy, the god of disorder, randomness, and uncertainty. He is very active lately in American affairs especially, to the degree that we have no workable consensus for running this society, so that all our standards and institutions are crumbling. It’s gotten so bad that we don’t even get the news about the crumbling because The News is one of the institutions that has fallen apart. Instead of events relayed in packets that comport with reality, we get “narratives” uniformly concocted in bad faith, that are knowingly in non-compliance with reality — which is as opposite as can possibly be from what The News once aimed to do.

The worst thing about the Trump years was that he enabled his adversaries to get away with turning bad faith into the greatest virtue of all. That’s what you got in the connivance of the anti-Trump Deep Staters and The News bringing you three years of RussiaGate, Robert Mueller’s coverup operation for RussiaGate, and Rep. Adam Schiff lying his ass off without any penalty. And now you’re getting more of it courtesy of Attorney General Merrick Garland allowing political adventurers like Deputy AG Lisa Monaco to go fishing for charges against Rudy Giuliani for the express purpose of burying him in “the process” and leaving him bankrupt. The Justice Department is a broken institution now, and there isn’t enough good will or good faith around these days to put it back together.

The Woke hysteria, on the other hand, is lately revealed to be a patent hustle, and is finally inviting pushback in the schools as parents begin to loudly object to “white privilege” struggle sessions for eight-year-olds and workshopping sexual confusion with children who are not ready for any version of sex, real or fake. The Great Reset’s connection to Wokery can be seen in the efforts of George Soros to finance the elections of district attorneys around the country, and that game is unwinding as their blatant incompetence is revealed. Kim Gardner, installed in St. Louis, now faces losing her law license for the malicious prosecution of former Governor Eric Greitens. The Missouri Supreme Court is conducting the investigation. A recall effort is underway to recall Soros-backed LA DA George Gascon, who doesn’t believe in prosecuting criminals. And the DA-equivalent, State’s Attorney, in Chicago (Cook County), Kim Foxx, another Soros installation, is on the rocks not just for covering up the Jussie Smollett hoax, but for allowing the county to become a free fire zone. What was Mr. Soros thinking?

Whoever thought a year ago that the fumbling old hack Joe Biden would be sitting in the oval office, fronting for his old boss, Barack Obama? Don’t you wonder how much Mr. Obama has in some fashion been behind all the culturally-destructive shenanigans since he “retired” across town to his Kalorama stronghold? Do you wonder how much of the shadowy activity in the DOJ has simply been an effort to protect Mr. Obama? The former president has done a good job of seeming to disappear into the woodwork. I think before long we’ll understand the role he continues to play in the country’s affairs, and it’s going to be an unappetizing discovery. It might provoke a whole different kind of reset.

    Good morning.

    I think this might be the most noteworthy sentence in the above:

    “It’s gotten so bad that we don’t even get the news about the crumbling because The News is one of the institutions that has fallen apart.”

    • messianicdruid May 21, 2021 at 10:34 am #

      Noteworthy, no doubt – but significant is “These dynamic forces are not necessarily hidden; many are working in plain sight and you can make pretty good guesses as to what’s up with them.”

      Mystery [ not in plain sight ] Babylon is hidden but the revelation is coming.

        Afraid that’s a little too deep for me, druid.

        Interesting, when I see the term “destroyed” nowadays, it usually refers to somebody’s dumb retort to someone else’s dumb remark on Twitter.

        • messianicdruid May 21, 2021 at 11:36 am #

          “The term “destroyed” just means that the nation itself will cease to exist until God raises it from the dead.”

          Discussions can be resurrected too. But there has to be interest [ recognition of need ].

    • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 10:58 am #

      The mainstream media and social media engineers (those that push the day’s narratives and pile-ons) have done so much damage to society that I consider them as responsible for the carnage as their puppeteer bosses. Imagine being paid all that money to lie to people day in and day out. It takes a particular type of sociopath or psychopath to be able to do that.

      I hope our illustrious host is correct that Soros & Co. (includes Obama) will be exposed as the totalitarian war criminals they are, but I don’t have a lot of hope they will just ‘go away’.

      • 100th Avatar May 21, 2021 at 11:23 am #

        It takes a particular type acquiescence to just follow orders.

        • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 11:57 am #

          And, gleefully follow orders. And they fight to get to those positions where they follow those orders. They actually aspire to it!

          Scaring fellow humans out of their wits for self-gain. Insidious.

            Governments as a matter of principal never give up power they have accumulated without a fight.

            Corvid has been such a useful toll in the march toward totalitarianism that they will hang onto it with the last shot of irrational panic they can muster.

            Even though the rule of law has long ago disappeared down the Doormouse Hole in the USA it still does have its uses.

            As a reader of this blog you are no doubt among the 50% of Americans who are rapidly being denied their basic rights as human beings and citizens because they haven’t had their genetic immune system permanently altered. .

            For us I’ve prepared a Demand Document to use every time they demand proof of inoculation with gene therapy in order to board a plane, go to a baseball game or go to work. Don’t leave until they acknowledge their liability or simply throw up their hands and allow you to board the plane. Insisting that they give you isolation in a first class private cabin isn’t a bad tactic once they fold LOL

            VACCINATION REQUIREMENT RELEASE FORM

            5/22/2021

            Compelling any employee or customer to take any current Covid-19 vaccine violates international, federal, and state law.

            First, federal law prohibits any mandate of the Covid-19 vaccines as unlicensed, emergency-use-authorization-only vaccines. Subsection bbb-3(e)(1)(A)(ii)(III) of section 360 of Title 21 of the United States Code, otherwise known as the Emergency Use Authorization section of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, demands that everyone give citizens and employees the “option to accept or refuse administration” of the Covid-19 vaccine. ( https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/21/360bbb-3 ) This right to refuse emergency, experimental vaccines, such as the Covid-19 vaccine, implements the internationally agreed legal requirement of Informed Consent established in the Nuremberg Code of 1947. ( http://www.cirp.org/library/ethics/nuremberg/ ). As the Nuremberg Code established, every person must “be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision” for any medical experimental drug, as the Covid-19 vaccine currently is. The Nuremberg Code prohibited even the military from requiring such experimental vaccines. (Doe #1 v. Rumsfeld, 297 F.Supp.2d 119 (D.D.C. 2003).

            Secondly, demanding employees divulge their personal medical information invades their protected right to privacy and discriminates against them based on their perceived medical status, in contravention of the Americans with Disabilities Act. (42 USC §12112(a).)

            Third, conditioning continued employment or the right to travel upon participating in a medical experiment and demanding disclosure of private, personal medical information, may also create corporate liability under other federal and state laws, including HIPAA, FMLA, and applicable state tort law principles, including torts prohibiting and proscribing invasions of privacy and battery. Indeed, any individual, corporation or employer mandating a vaccine is liable to their subjects for any adverse event suffered by that citizen. ( https://www.osha.gov/coronavirus/faqs#vaccine ).

            The CDC records reports of the adverse events already reported to date concerning the current Covid-19 vaccine already exceed the adverse reactions to all vaccines administered for all diseases since the advent of vaccines..( https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/vaers.html )

            Who is stating this?
            Looks like the airline etc. Not the passenger.
            Why would the passenger be sued by the airline?

      • SW May 21, 2021 at 12:02 pm #

        Among the DAs elected by George Soros, Philadelphia DA Krasner will be returning to his office:

        “A former defense attorney who rose to prominence by suing the police department and representing Black Lives Matter activists, Krasner was viewed as an improbable candidate when he jumped into the race for DA in 2017. He brought no prosecutorial experience.

        In 2017, New York billionaire George Soros spent $1.7 million on a political action committee to support Krasner’s election.”

        Why did Soros care WHO was the DA in Philadelphia? Looking at the people he supports, it’s hard not to believe he wants chaos in the cities. The spike in the murder rate was blamed on the pandemic (of course) and over-strict enforcement last summer. How they came up with that one, I’ll never figure out. This was just a primary challenge this time around but since Democrats outnumber Republicans 6 to 1, his job is secure.

        • Pete May 21, 2021 at 1:12 pm #

          Here’s another wealthy philanthropist-ruler-of-the-world-wanna-be, the Karen of all Karens

          Laurene Powell Jobs

          She writes a lotta checks with her left hand.

          • SW May 21, 2021 at 1:25 pm #

            Hmmm interesting — I never heard of her but looked her up. She’s worth 34 billion and —

            “Powell Jobs is also an avid art collector, has multiple homes in the Bay Area, and owns a megayacht, Venus, which was commissioned by Jobs and finished after he died.”

            She’s not going to leave the loot to the kids either and stated “it stops with me”. Why don’t these people ever give their employees a raise? Pay 100% of the employees health insurance? Build a factory here? Yet they want to be seen as so virtuous when in reality, they’re no different from any other greedy, shallow mediocrity.

          • Anthea May 21, 2021 at 1:45 pm #

            Replying to SW (below): “Art” is merely VERY high-denomination currency and generally has no more real artistic merit than the “art” on our paper money. Hence the “art” collecting.

        • Hereward the Woke May 21, 2021 at 2:22 pm #

          Soros is a psychopath who wants to create as much chaos in the world before he goes to meet Satan.

          • Uncle Bob May 22, 2021 at 12:16 am #

            And, as a good Nazi collaborator, he holds America responsible for cutting off his access to wealth that was afforded to him while he sent his fellow Jews to the ovens. And of course, he thinks it’s fun and “interesting” to tamper with national economies for his personal amusement, no matter who else is harmed.

    • Yohannon May 21, 2021 at 11:33 am #

      I challenged Elrond on the Narrative and he waxed eloquent. Yes it was sad that it often deviated from reality, but nothing else got the job done so well.

      As Marx said, the problem isn’t to understand reality, but to change it.

    • Wizard of the Saddle May 21, 2021 at 12:37 pm #

      I am more inclined to believe first-person reports by random strangers posting in Internet forums these days than any so-called “media” enterprise staffed by journalists – all of whom have their own political and social agendas to promote.

      Why pay attention to propagandists?

      • Ron Anselmo May 21, 2021 at 4:26 pm #

        Wiz – you are 100% correct – even just anecdotal evidence from people on the ground – more truth than the propagandists.

      • MaryV May 22, 2021 at 9:39 am #

        Same. People just sharing their experiences who gain nothing from lying are more reliable than the ‘news’.

    • Chippenhook May 21, 2021 at 2:23 pm #

      Yes Beryl, that is very noteworthy. I cannot think of a single national coverage newspaper, television, or other source of actual “just the facts w/o bias” news. They are all arms of either the DNC or RNC at this point. Even if one were to watch say Fox and CNN, you still might not know what really happened given the extensive selective editing of the content so as to fit their respective narratives. We are way beyond it just being differences of opinions when both sides are making up their own facts. Rather than give us the actual statements in context, both sides give us their usually creative interpretation of what the other side said.

      We’re left almost totally in the dark if we want to know what is going on in the world at large.

      Add to this the FBI, DOJ, DHS, and State Dept all being compromised with almost no risk of repercussions. Note that nothing happened to them in Trump’s 4 years, so it isn’t just a matter of the Dems currently being in control. These agencies may be working on behalf of the Dems but the Republicans didn’t do anything about it when they were in charge.

      Even the damn grocery store this morning was advertising something as being on sale, but I had just bought it a week ago for less than the current sale price. Raise the price but tell people you lowered it instead. They must be taking their cue from the major media.

      • rainmaker May 21, 2021 at 3:28 pm #

        What is the difference between propaganda and advertising? Nothing.

    • Goodwalkspoiled May 23, 2021 at 10:27 am #

      Not quite. The News has not fallen apart. It has morphed into the Democratic Party’s largest constituency. That institution controls the narrative. They determine how 70% of U.S. residents actually think. Hence the election of criminal Joe Biden and Sista Kamala.

      The U.S. economy is hyper-inflating. Within 2 years the citizens will be marching in the streets with shovels and pitchforks, demanding more stimulus. The Democratic response will be legalization of marijuana. They’ll keep 50% – 60% of the base stoned – like in the old folks home.

      Invest in chocolate, potato chips, cheetos, ice cream, beer, wine and spiritus frumenti. Soon this will be a 24/7, 365 party. Oh wow man, far out. Stoners rule. Sex and drugs and rock’n-roll are all you’ll ever need.

        Well, we’re talking about UFOs now.

        • Beryl of Oyl May 21, 2021 at 10:57 am #

          UFOs, and the 9/11 Truthers are rising up again, and then there i that Mars landing by China.

          I paid little attention to the Mars story, because space travel is not my thing, but when somebody said the video is an obvious fake I went back and watched it; sure enough, it looks like low budget sci-fi.

          They also said it was meant to look fake.

          I have a theory that those of us who were reporting the obvious about the bat virus origin a year ago were called conspiracy theorists, so now that they have been proved correct somebody wants to distract from that with a bunch of conspiracy theories.

          • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 11:04 am #

            I think you are spot on. They are cooking up whatever they can in order to distract the masses, while keeping us stewing in fear.

            If people wake up to the COVID19 hoax, then they need something to take its place.

            I’m not surprised the Mars landing was a hoax, look at the shabby setup of the moon landing and people still believe that. Did you know that at the time of the so-called moon landing, 30% of people didn’t believe the hoax? But now most do.

            “”See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda.”” – GWB

            “We’ll Know Our Disinformation Program Is Complete When Everything the American Public Believes Is False.” – William Casey

            The UFO thing was being primed late last summer/early fall, with the mysterious monolith spottings… but those turned out to be kind of a joke, and not taken seriously. So I wonder what their next move will be.

        If he sits tight, and doesn’t make a move without the approval of the furthest left of TPTB, he will be left alone for now.

        Letitia James has bigger fish to fry, as she campaigned on a promise to prosecute Donald Trump, even though she had nothing to prosecute him for.

        The reason they don’t just go ahead and rid themselves of Andrew instead of just keeping him in check, is because he has enormous amounts of dirt on so many.

        • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 11:05 am #

          I agree completely!

          A NYer friend of mine said, they just squeezed him a bit to keep him in line, by allowing the press to report the harassment and eldercide.

    Rod Rosenstein’s sister up and quit her job with the CDC after it had been discovered that Randi Weingarten dictated the “science” of the CDC guidelines for reopening schools.

    Randi wants children stabbed with an experimental vaccine, or smothered in a useless muzzle.

    Both women belong in prison, as does the head of the CDC for allowing this on her watch.

    There are people who still belive this was about a virus.

    • jeff2002 May 21, 2021 at 10:49 am #

      The latest wonder from the CDC is its change, effective May 14, to how they count “breakthrough cases”–basically by throwing out any cases that didn’t result in a trip to the hospital or the morgue. (That’s most cases, incidentally.) They also lowered the PCR test threshold to 28 cycles–but only for vaccinated people. So, “disappear” most new cases and create a different testing standard for vaxxed folks. That’s not good science, that’s gamed science.

      • tully May 21, 2021 at 11:52 am #

        The latest shenanigans with testing and reporting standard for cases just astounds me. That they are brazen enough to do is astounding until I look around and see folks nodding their head like this is “good science.” And the biggest head nodders are the MSM. No one ever pipes up and says, “excuse me, your new testing protocols are not good science, and are a scam.”

        How can anyone read a report about the new testing protocols and not call bullshit??

        • Beryl of Oyl May 21, 2021 at 12:16 pm #

          They don’t read it. They read what the MSM tells them about it.

        • Redneck Liberal May 23, 2021 at 7:00 pm #

          But tully, according to the Very Large and Wise Brains running the CFN Commentariat, the PCR test doesn’t work anyway…and, besides that, the whole COVID-19 thing is a hoax. Therefore, such criticisms of changes to testing protocols are pointless, are they not?

      No worries about the stupid people falling for the ‘vax’ scam and accepting the gene ‘therapy.’ Most of them will be dead or permanently disabled within the year. That’s probably been the plan all along.

      What I find amazing, however, is that many many people who denied the reality of covid, clamored for and took the gene therapy/fake fax with glee. Stupid is as stupid does.

        Would you like to place a wager on this claim of mass carnage within the year from the vax or was this just a freewheeling bullshit claim that you can’t possibly be dumb enough to actually believe?

      • Redneck Liberal May 23, 2021 at 7:03 pm #

        “No worries about the stupid people falling for the ‘vax’ scam and accepting the gene ‘therapy.’ Most of them will be dead or permanently disabled within the year.

        That’s quite a big call, neurodoc. We can revisit it next May for an update. Didn’t you once assert that the vaccines would be the delivery mechanism for some sort of tracker/nanobot? What would be the point of that if the whole scam is simply a Malthusian depopulation plot?

    If all could see our present circumstances as clearly as we eventually will in the rear view mirror then all would possess the quality of prescience. Alas, the history of the future is reserved for the prophets and the herds shall be culled by those ’emergent circumstances’ or their respective existences repurposed to actually serve their community usefully, i.e. not gaming, hustling etc… Oh, the howls, the gnashing of teeth.

    “The human project is surely going somewhere.” Yes, and the current time is just a blip on the screen of human history. That doesn’t mean it’s unimportant, only that it’s not truly determinant of how well we do in the future. You could easily say that what is determining our fate today is the enactment of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 or FDR’s coddling of Stalin at Yalta; or how about Dealey Plaza in 1963?

        Makes you want to look up his family connections. How did this guy get elected to anything, ever?

        It has long been my theory that the US’s aristocratic families place their cognitively deficient offspring in political office to provide them with a sinecure. Thusly placed, they can siphon off wealth for the whole family–no brains required beyond doing as they’re told–and perhaps almost equally importantly, not have to be kept chained in the attic where the servants will have to mop up their drool all the time.

    • Beryl of Oyl May 21, 2021 at 10:16 am #

      They has Step-n pretending to drive a special car with two steering wheels the other day.

      I can remember, back before automobile safety seats, there were baby seats that attached to the top of the car seat, and the baby could look out the windshield, and they came with a tiny toy steering wheel so the infant could pretend it was driving, just like Daddy or Mommy.

    • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 11:31 am #

      Obama was the most destructive president we’ve ever had, IMHO.

      He gave the death blow to the middle class, and shredded the last of our rights, with his ‘open season’ on spying on us.

      Most of the blue-no-matter-who’s have a clue at just how horrible a president he was. They don’t care that he returned Libya to a slave state, or that he drone-killed an American citizen, or that he tried to pass the TPP, or the 5 new wars he started. None of them even bats an eye about it.

      • Yohannon May 21, 2021 at 11:43 am #

        His Two Natures, Black and White; Divine and Human. It doesn’t matter what he does – it’s all correct by definition. What matters is who He is, and your Faith in Him.

      • Blackbird May 21, 2021 at 3:16 pm #

        The True Beliebers swear Obama was the best president ever. When pressed for details the best anyone that I know has come up with so far is, “Well, he won the Nobel Prize!”

        • MaryV May 22, 2021 at 10:19 am #

          What a joke that was… a pre-emptive (hopeful?) award, which of course he probably laughed at as he started his drone bombing campaigns which dwarfed GWB’s.

    • Hereward the Woke May 21, 2021 at 3:45 pm #

      Obama wasn’t really a human being: just a bundle of hatreds walking a in human shaped formation. However, he is stupid and lazy, so it’s probably Jarrett or Susan Rice pulling the strings.

    Top headline at Yahoo News: “Amazon Halts Construction After 7 Nooses Found on Site in Windsor, Connecticut. FBI Task Force Assembled. $100,000 Reward Offered.” Methinks one of our correspondents lives near there. Maybe he can offer more insight.

    • BackRowHeckler May 21, 2021 at 10:53 am #

      Yeah, it’s clearly yet another hate crime hoax. That fact became evident this morning, when an ‘Activist’, in an interview on local news, was complaining that one of the contractors on the Amazon jobsite “was a white man from Lynchburg, Va.”

      Brh

        • BackRowHeckler May 21, 2021 at 12:03 pm #

          Yeah that’s the irony of it, and the point the Activist was trying to make. These warehouses near the airport are contractually built by local labor and local contractors, so I doubt if any “contractors from Lynchburg, Va.” actually exist.

          These Hate Crime hoaxes grow more and more absurd, yet the more improbable they get, the more FBI agents are deployed to “root out the hate.” Actually the whole LE apparatus in Ct has sprung into action. Meanwhile, in The Community itself, Shootin’ Season has begun with the arrival of warm weather; at least 8 Club Members shot in various cities so far this week.

    Yep, justices and true journalism will re-emerge in this country next week, and all of us will say – in unison – “Goodness!” Then Obama will be indicted, arrested, and jailed without bond due to the vast extent of his war crimes. Hahaha, yeah sure. If any individual of the US grifter class dares try to bring another grifter to justice, his personal grifter income will cease. It ain’t ever gonna happen. As long as there is something of value that can be stolen, anywhere in the world, then the US grifters will remain in business in their plush federal jobs.

    As unnerving as these days really are it’s actually comforting to know that

    “The direction is determined not by technocrat megalomaniacs but by the process called emergence, which means a self-organizing reality of more dynamic forces than any coterie of megalomaniacs could hope to control. These dynamic forces are not necessarily hidden; many are working in plain sight and you can make pretty good guesses as to what’s up with them. But they control the gameboard, not Klaus and his legion of economist-engineer nerds.”

    Klaus is gonna be really pissed off when he realizes that when (Klaus) Schwab speaks NOBODY actually listens……that was a little play on the old Charles Schwab TV ad for you young’uns.

            The Smart Money will have already cashed out.
            The Strip Mall Money will lose their shirts.p in the crash.
            The Smart Money will then buy the wanted stocks at pennies on the dollar from the Strip Mall Money.
            The result is that the Strip Mall Money is virtually all gone while the Smart Money now has both the money and the stocks.

        I’ve always liked Mr. Trump and still do. He would tend to the spout the inconvenient truth every once in awhile. I loved how folks would simply lose their minds over it. I think some still do. Since I would rather recognize reality than the shit sandwich that is routinely served now, he appealed to me. I thought his wife was classy. She always looked and acted like a first lady should. She was treated horribly. Some of my fellow americans are simply pigs in this regard.

          Not being partisan, and not believing in this absurd political theater, I really enjoyed Trump The Disruptor.

          He destroyed the milquetoast old vanilla white guy club of the GOP. (Still got Tom Cotton, despite America burning, out there complaining about the AP sharing an office building with Hamas. What a good little Netanyahu neocon).

          He exposed the shill media hacks for what they are.

          He ridiculed the Clintons and Barry Soetoro.

          He made it clear that nobody represents the working class.

          • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 11:25 am #

            Same here. I’m not a partisan, either.

            I laughed so hard when he got elected, and HRC had a meltdown of epic proportions.

            I loved it when he spouted the truth in a way politicians never do. I enjoyed that he was not a trained politician in general, and could therefore speak directly.

            Trump is one of those many people that you might very well adore as friends, but who would be difficult to be married to; namely, a Gemini. I love them–their smart mouth, their sass, their bluntness, and the way they are so abrasive and vulgar. I would never marry one. Melania should probably be canonized.

        • Bilejones@hotmail.com May 21, 2021 at 7:10 pm #

          “The Official Version of 9/11 goes something like this…
          (All this reported by “respectable” mainstream media or reported in the 9/11 commission report )

          Directed by a beardy-guy from a cave in Afghanistan, nineteen hard-drinking, coke-snorting, devout Muslims enjoy lap dances before their mission to meet Allah…

          Using nothing more than craft knifes, they overpower cabin crew, passengers and pilots on four planes…

          And hangover or not, they manage to give the world’s most sophisticated air defense system the slip…

          Unphased by leaving their “How to Fly a Passenger Jet” guide in the car at the airport, they master the controls in no-time and score direct hits on two towers, causing THREE to collapse completely…

          Our masterminds even manage to overpower the odd law of physics or two… and the world watches in awe as steel-framed buildings fall symmetrically – through their own mass – at free-fall speed, for the first time in history.

          Despite all their dastardly cunning, they stupidly give their identity away by using explosion-proof passports, which survive the fireball undamaged and fall to the ground… only to be discovered by the incredible crime-fighting sleuths at the FBI…

          …Meanwhile down in Washington…

          Hani Hanjour, having previously flunked 2-man Cessna flying school, gets carried away with all the success of the day and suddenly finds incredible abilities behind the controls of a Boeing…
          Instead of flying straight down into the large roof area of the Pentagon, he decides to show off a little…
          Executing an incredible 270 degree downward spiral, he levels off to hit the low facade of the world’s most heavily defended building…
          …all without a single shot being fired…. or ruining the nicely mowed lawn… and all at a speed just too fast to capture on video…

          …Later, in the skies above Pennsylvania…

          So desperate to talk to loved ones before their death, some passengers use sheer willpower to connect mobile calls that otherwise would not be possible until several years later…

          And following a heroic attempt by some to retake control of Flight 93, it crashes into a Shankesville field leaving no trace of engines, fuselage or occupants… except for the standard issue Muslim terrorists bandana…

          …Further south in Florida…

          President Bush, our brave Commander-in-Chief continues to read “My Pet Goat” to a class full of primary school children… shrugging off the obvious possibility that his life could be in imminent danger…

          …In New York…

          World Trade Center leaseholder Larry Silverstein blesses his own foresight in insuring the buildings against terrorist attack only six weeks previously…

          While back in Washington, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz shake their heads in disbelief at their own luck in getting the ‘New Pearl Harbor’ catalyzing event they so desired to pursue their agenda of world domination…

          And finally, not to be disturbed too much by reports of their own deaths, at least seven of our nineteen suicide hijackers turn up alive and kicking in mainstream media reports…

          And if you don’t believe that, you’re a “conspiracy theorist”

      I think it started under Carter, but I don’t think Carter was in on it. I don’t know if it was fully formed as an idea yet.

      I know that Jimmy stood up against at least one of the globalist goals.

      In my own research into what I called “What The Hell Happened” I kept pinpointing the beginning as the start of the Reagan years, but I couldn’t see where Ronald was actually doing anything that was contributing to what was going on beneath the surface.

      He probably wasn’t, he in fact slowed the agenda somewhat.

      Remember who his vice president and successor was.

      Someone on here said that 1974 was probably the peak year in America, I think that sounds about right.

      • butter56 May 21, 2021 at 10:51 am #

        It did seem like nothing was impossible in 1974. Maybe we have a more realistic view of things once we get older

          Just a reminder, 1980 was the year of Iran grabbing our hostages and the helicopter Carter rescue fiasco. The incompetence led to the election of Reagan.

            People have always blamed President Carter for the US Military yahoos that planned then screwed up their hostage rescue attempt. If those same yahoos would have succeeded, Jimmy would have done absolutely nothing different and gone down in history as a gutsy genius.

          A few weeks back, came across a couple of You Tube videos of Lynyrd Skynyrd performing in Oakland the summer of 1979; about three months before the plane crash. Good versions of “Freebird” and “Sweet Home Alabama.” Band was firing on all cylinders, but what was equally striking was the crowd.

          Watching, I realized I could not remember the last time I saw that many slender and healthy looking people in a crowd. Any crowd shot today, weather a sporting event, concert, etc is filled with pudgy folks, and a lot of them don’t look all that healthy.

          And no cell phones in 1979. Just people totally into the music and the moment.

          In a way, those videos symbolize the peak for me.

            Growth hormones, antibiotics, herbicides, pestacides, fertilizers, GMO, salmon farming, etc., etc. etc.

          Peak America: Depends on who and where you were.

          I’d say it was 1948-63. (which was before I was born)

          Why? If there was ever a time when being willing to work hard paid off, that was it. People had less stuff, but had reason to be optimistic. The economy. TV. Jet travel. The interstates. A rising tide!

          America was in good shape. American products were the BEST.

          People visiting America for the first time, or immigrating (some illegally) were overwhelmed—by everything, in a positive sense. It was like American movies.

          The very wealthy paid their share of taxes. The poor didn’t expect hand-outs.

          That’s the high point of 1945-1973, which was the high-water mark for middle America!

          It helped that, until the 1960s, there was no real foreign competition.

          Of course, success breeds complacency. Our leaders began to promise more less, then something for nothing. Americans gave their lives (and many MORE of the… “natives”) in stupid wars. Deficit spending is like drug addiction…and the new regime, as has been true of EVERY administration, makes the previous one look…’frugal’.

          Success led to excess, which helped lead us to where we are now–too much “stuff” that our society increasingly cannot sustain–and demography will make things even more challenging.

          MaryV: the 1970s….good music, lousy cars, lol.

          And in my lifetime, I consider Donald Trump the most honest, most transparent, least compromised President is the one who was most reviled by just about everyone except Americans who work and pay taxes. And he is definitely NOT a saint.

          The next most honest, Jimmy C….well, one does not go from governor of a relatively insignificant state to the White House in six years without kissing the ring the elite…Carter was a member of the Trilateral commission, and duly paid homage to the Klaus Schwabs of his day… Which is one more reason I disliked him back then. Still, like Trump, he did not start any wars. His misfortune was the Iran hostage crisis, and inflation (to be doing an encore any day); Trump’s was the plandemic.

          The Matrix (movie) is sci-fi, but it is a metaphor for today. In short, you take one pill to live in the facade, and another to see reality. The reality is grim.

          We have the facade we live in that most people take as reality (which JHK and others have pointed out) is not sustainable, and that is where most people think they are. In that facade, Trump was good in many regards, rather than universally deferential to “the elite”, to the detriment of most people (those who work and pay taxes) like every other prominent politician (except Bernie Sanders…whose ideas are unworkable, and would require a dictatorship…see USSR and China 1949-79)

          But in the reality that more and more have been starting to see since 2008-09, despite the smartphones and Zoom, the center is slowly giving way, and it’s not pretty.

          That view is not Trump’s arena, as he’s trying to take us back to simpler time. But Biden is 10x worse…as the center breaks, the current administration’s policies are driving this country, which is fragile (the benefits of complexity are easily fragile…see Dmitry Orlov–who I learned about from some one here on CFN!!) to a place we haven’t been since 1968 (civil strife), mis-educating kids, and hyperinflation. As the sh*t hits the fan, it will be much worse than it might have been…

          • MaryV May 22, 2021 at 5:21 pm #

            I remember that our childhoods (60’s, 70’s) were very easy and uncomplicated.

      • JohnAZ May 21, 2021 at 11:29 am #

        IMHO, Bush one was the beginning of the total takeover of the Deep State, until him, the MIC pushed their weight around once in awhile. Bush unified the intelligence arm into being a tool for the Deep State. We have been going down into the pit of communism ever since. Remember he was Director of the CIA.

        Remember how DC used to be afraid of J. Edgar Hoover and his filing cabinet? Bush promoted that oversight mentality and Bush 2 cemented it into place after 9/11. That encroachment of privacy is one of the reasons I do not dismiss OG’s theories of Federal involvement in 9/11.

        Remember JFK. The Deep State hides its involvement well.

        • Beryl of Oyl May 21, 2021 at 11:46 am #

          Sometimes it doesn’t even hide its involvement.

          A TV show, calling itself “Access Hollywood” with a Bush as a host, held on to an eleven year old outtake, and then tried to use it to take a political outsider out of the running. Nobody got it.

        • O.G. Hawkins May 21, 2021 at 5:16 pm #

          I agree, JAZ, and I add the following:

          1) “Poppy” Bush 41 was a 2nd generation Yale Skull & Bonesman

          2) VP “Poppy” Bush 41 dined with Hinkley’s family a night or two before he almost became President in 1981 with young Hinkley almost assassinating President Reagan. Reagan’s wings were clipped and Bush 41 had 3 terms.

          3) VP Dick Cheney, on the same page as 41, ran “Dubya” Bush 43’s (3rd generation Yale Skull & Bonesman) 2 terms including That Tuesday months into their first term.

          4) While I have been an advocate for Truth on CFN, I merely point to documented facts and logical analysis of That Tuesday. That is, aside from one exception,* these are not my theories. Michael Ruppert (RIP) deserves the credit. Then thousands of Architects & Engineers who have studied the 3 skyscraper collapses and signed their names to The Truth. Then hundreds pursued Truth in all sorts of ways circa 2002-2007. Then they finally got exhausted and, like JFK getting his head blown off in the daylight sun, That Tuesday Just … kind of … went away … down the Memory Hole while they rubber stamp the pre-written PATRIOT Act every so often.

          *It is my theory that the commercial airliner that went down in the “Let’s roll!” moment near Shanksville, PA was intended to be the coup de grace: Flying Right over what remained of the pulverized ruins of 110 stories of WTC1 and 110 more stories of WTC2 and into WTC7. When they unexpectedly lost that plane in a field in Pennsylvania, owner Larry Silverstein’s dick was left slapping in the breeze with a wired building jam-packed with CIA evidence that needed destroying and no plausible explanation for it’s 2.5 seconds of free-fall collapse. He decided to “Pull it” anyway. What choice did he have (although admitting it on video-tape sure is cheeky for a mass murderer).

          Tekapo quickly pointed out (weeks ago) the common wisdom that that commercial airliner was headed for the Capital Bldg in Washington DC. I asked him how he knows what those terrorists were targetting that day. He never responded because he had never before considered how ridiculous it was that US officials claim to know the terrorists’ intended target.

            Great rundown, O.G.

            Exactly what my research has pointed to as well.

            Makes a lot of sense. Bldg 7 was probably headquarters for the whole thing. Why just blow it like that? Something must have gone wrong.

          • Blackbird May 21, 2021 at 9:55 pm #

            O.G., in regard to your point #2, are you sure it was Poppy a night or two before, and not Son-of-Poppy Neil the night after? The Houston Post reported on March 31, 1981 – the day after the assassination attempt – that Neil Bush was scheduled to have dinner with Scott Hinckley, brother of John jr., that night (the 31st). I remember hearing that on the news at the time. I was surprised that the planned rendezvous was reported. But I wasn’t surprised to hear no more of it.

            Regardless, the elite link of the House of Bush and President Reagan’s (attempted) assassin sure does not get much scrutiny.

            ——-

            Of course Tekapo does not explain how he knew that the Shanksville airplane was headed for the Capital Bldg in DC. He can not possibly.

            Instead, he attacks Mary’s extensive research and then ner motives (when it is clear that Mary seeks The Truth).

        Peak America is different for different people.

        I’d say peak America was 1945-1973, with the caveat that if you wound up (served is not the right word, and not all who went fought…), you returned with your mind and body intact. That’s definitely peak America for middle America, which was mostly white.

        Peak America for blacks is 1969 to 2000. Legal barriers off. By 1991, African American families (literal families–aka father, mother, with their children) were earning 91% of what white familes made.

        The rot started with the death of JFK. Who did he piss off? While we can never know what JFK would have done, LBJ’s war and Great Society (“Great”? we see how that’s turned out..) led to inflation. The truly unjust treatment of blacks birthed the Civil Rights movement, which I applaud. However, the Civil Rights movement and Vietnam DELEGITIMIZED much in government and society, and by throwing the baby out with the bathwater, led use to this place, these culture wars, which are more toxic to this country’s future than China.

        In the ‘conventional thinking’ realm, culture wars plus incipient massive inflation is a recipe for civil strife….

        It’s important to note that JHK pointed out the resource constraints and major trends that did not bode well, in the sense that our current living arrangements cannot remain indefinitely, in the Long Emergency. That tide of entropy probably would trump the tide of good governance. Entropy is the overriding reality that no politician considers–if they do, they never discuss it.

        I bet Klaus and company see this coming too. They want to keep their perks and privilege. And it’s not fun being king of the caveman, so they need to retain many elements of civilization for themselves. For the rest of us….cull the herd perhaps, and if you’re left, you better go along or you’ll be gone. Or so they think–that’s not gonna happen either. Only God know what will. We certainly are not in Kansas anymore. In this space, most of you see it. Do you most of your fellow human beings do?

        We have bad governance in the US: politicians who must promise more than is feasible to get elected by a generally ignorant, naïve, self-centered public (the result of the golden era of 1945-73, which bred complacency and apathy and dumbing down). This has led to living beyond our means in general, manifested in massive debt that cannot be paid back, for decades! As a kid, I remember Reagan berating Carter for doubling the debt to one trillion (I think). That was a lot! Ronnie was right. What happened on HIS watch?

        However, some points about governance. Klaus Schwab (sounds like a James Bond villain)…. Well, for a relatively obscure governor to become president, one needs connections. Mr. Carter was on good terms with Schwab’s predecessors (the Trilateral Commision). For this, and other reasons at the time, I despised him as a teen. However, he did not start any wars, and over time, has my grudging respect. After Trump, he is the least offensive living President, by far. Carter tried to convey resources were not limitless. He had the Iranian Hostages sink him (Trump had the plandemic sink him!)

        Reagan…started the debt train. Sure, give me a charge card and I can live better….

        But the USSR imploded! I was young, and 1989 was the focal point in time. America could have come home and tended to it’s affairs.

        A more introspective America then would have less suburban sprawl than we do today. More fiscal sanity. Probably fewer culture wars. But NO, Bush senior got us into the Middle East (and Carter had made that a ‘line in the sand’ 12 years earlier…).

        Then Clinton discovered that war is a great distraction. He launched an illegal war against Serbia. That’s your precedent for Iraq. He lobbed missiles. He took Glass-Steagall down (with GOP support). He pushed NAFTA. Something for everyone–war for PR (and defense contractors), hall pass for Wall St, and a hall pass for the globalization folks from Davos. Way to go Bill!

        Then Bush launched his stupid wars, CRIMINAL WARS that have foisted misery on tens of millions of human beings, decimated the Christians in Iraq, and not made the world safer; wars that have bled us dry. He legalized the police state with the Patriot Act (Goebbels himself would have wonder, “how did ziss happen, zat he outdid me???). W cut taxes and raised spending.

        So, CLINTON and BUSH JR were the nails in the coffin.

        Obama…he simply one-upped Bush Jr in many regards.

        Trump… said the unspoken truths. His record is mixed–but he is the only President, with Reagan, in my lifetime, maybe Ford, who is not worse than his predecessor.

        And now we have… I read it here and like it, Clouseau Joe and the Democrats…

        But entropy trumps all these people. And at the end of the day, outside of this space, most Americans are delusional and ignorant, and vote the the slickest used car dealer who promises something for nothing. And now, the system is rigged in favor of sheeple who vote Democrat.

        Kind of sad

          That part about Reagan and the credit cards, the way I put it was the Reagan years started the “everybody pretend to be rich” phenomenon.

          Everything became about money, and people were suddenly very dissatisfied with their lifestyles, at the same time the good-paying jobs were beginning to disappear.

          People didn’t know what was hitting them, and it hit the black communities very hard, because they had only just gotten near the standard of living of average whites before it started going the other way.

          What you can’t tolerate is that your totally incompetent and corrupt Orange Man (Donald J Trump) lost really big-time – because a ten-million person majority absolutely did not want the Trump Circus to have another four years.

          Everything else you say on here is just horseradish – the absolute duck’s guts is that a very serious majority of thinking people did not want any more four more years of Trump.

    The unraveling of the USSR happened very, very quickly. From the time those East German youngsters mounted the Berlin Wall to when Mikhail Gorbachev signed away the Soviet republics was the blink of an eye. This feels like that. It’s not necessarily a bad thing. Out here in the middle, I have more in common with people in the Canadian prairie provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba than I do US liberals and their MMT and endless QE. They stopped being my countrymen when they stuck their hands out. Fuck them.

    • King of Comedy May 21, 2021 at 10:59 am #

      In many respects, the US is a fiction on par with the late stage Soviet Union. While the fiction of the USSR was almost entirely the result of the advance of the Red Army 1942-45 and the occupation of peoples who wanted no parts of the wonders of Bolshevism, the fiction of the US has been created over the last half century by the project of admitting multitudes to these shores who not only do not share in an appreciation for Western civilization but in many cases hold it in contempt. A house divided against itself indeed.

      The only question vis-a-vis the good old USA is if the breakup will be violent a la Yugoslavia or more Velvet Revolution. The breakup itself though is, in this reporter’s opinion, a foregone conclusion…

          @ 100th

          The throngs at the southern border seem to posit a counterfactual to that last sentence.

          The only difference between the Ellis Island types in the 18th and 19th centuries and the latter day version is that the Germans, Irish, Italians, Jews and Eastern Europeans were not actively encouraged to hold on to the untenable culture that had caused them to emigrate in the first place. Quite the opposite as a matter of fact.

          By way of contrast, we have a system now that welcomes the “huddled masses yearning to be free” while encouraging them in two generations or less to endlessly browbeat the welcomers how shitty the wecomers’ culture and by extension the wecolmers themselves are.

        Spot on, King of Comedy. The glue has come unstuck, and it’s terminal. There is already a quiet secession going on with many Red state governors simply ignoring DC on key issues. Something will spark off a real succession. And like the USSR, America will seem highly permanent until one day we wake up and it’s gone.

        • King of Comedy May 21, 2021 at 7:57 pm #

          @ Hereward

          So many somethings to “spark off a real secession” and so little time but the top three IMHO:

          1. HR1 (probably the gambling man’s favorite)
          2. A few extra Supreme Court justices
          3. Statehood for DC and Puerto Rico

          At some point, sensible, productive souls will see no real purpose in being associated with Equityland, politically or otherwise, and that will be that.

      You are right on. The gimmes are in control. The Democratic give away for votes is very close to being in control. I am with you all the way. I condemn the Deep State for much of it, but the gimme attitude pervades all the Blue states. That is why they are blue.

      IMHO, and I have been saying this for a long time, the real cause of the Liberal swing is two fold:

      The extreme liberalization of the university campus, which I do not understand how that happened, and even more so illegal immigration.

      Rainmaker, I think that is your answer. THE problem is the Democratic engineering of the American populace. What to do to escape the oncoming gimme deluge is the number one issue now.

        It happened because the Elite funded it. Endowments. They wanted an education that produced a certain kind of person who believed certain things.

        Free thinkers is what they didn’t want. Thus a Liberal Arts education had to be turned into a long indoctrination program to create slaves and/or social activists (commissars).

        Maybe this will help: What makes a great employee? The same thing that makes a great slave. Neither one makes a great citizen in the Revolutionary War sense. But it is the model for what They want as a citizen.

        Certain slaves get to direct other slaves. That’s management or being a commissar. Keep going an you get to the Plateau. You know quite a bit at that point. Enough to know that this world is a lie, or Babylon to use Biblical language. Then you wait to be chosen by the Kings of this World – or you become a fisherman in a remote village.

      • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 12:16 pm #

        Get a load of this gimme story:

        My lawn guy who is a tireless worker, with probably the best work ethic I’ve ever seen, just picked up 500 new clients because, he said, the other landscape/lawn care people decided they’d rather take covid money than work (apparently all of them were subsidized, including my guy, James). So, they lost all their clients. Problem is, James said, the governor has now halted all the subsidies, and they can’t sit at home all day drinking beer and watching soaps now. He said most of them don’t even realize the governor halted it (last payments in September he said). So, they will have lost all their clients to the hard-working guys who never stopped working, and in fact picked up the slack.

        So James’ income has increased by $4K while the gimmes will probably have to rebuild their entire client base from scratch.

        The gimmes are stupid and greedy, and in the end self-sabotagers, is what I get from this story.

          Your lawn guy, James, is a busy man indeed…

          $4,000 over 500 clients is an average of $8 per (assuming that’s ‘a month’?). I’d have him mow my lawns for $8 per!

          If he’s not employing anyone else (is he?) then he’s doing a minimum of 700 lawns per month (assuming he already had only 200 regular clients)…and all this despite being almost murdered by the “vaxx” assholes.

          Assuming two hours per lawn (including travel time), he’s up to 1400 hours per month. Assuming a couple of days off and an average of 28 working days per month, he’s working 50-hour days. Superman! Halve the time-per-lawn and you’re still getting phenomenal productivity.

          Hmm… There’s not a lot of time left over for running around the woods playing “militia guy” as well.

      America is losing its identity because its people do not give a damn about it.

          If the US caves, will anyone be the new “leader”? Has there ever been a voluntary turnover of authority without war? Is this what the Biden mob is trying to pull off, the peaceful turnover of world dominion to China?

        Heat = good. Cold = bad. As evidenced throughout history.

        Our mini-ice ages caused pestilence, famine and real pandemics.

      • JohnAZ May 21, 2021 at 12:31 pm #

        My only comment is that each generation faces its own battle with the microbe world. Mother Nature is marvelous at figuring out ways to get past our immunity and eat us from the inside out.

        The two sexes evolved as a way to naturally mix up the genetic structure of the species in an attempt to stave off the bugs. The IFF (identification friend of foe) system must genetically change to avoid being overwhelmed by the hordes of microbes. Old people, like with Covid, suffer the fate of a microbial world that has caught up to them.

        Man uses his ingenuity to stay one step ahead of the bugs. Without it, we would probably have gone extinct a long time ago.

        Just like 98% of all the species that have inhabited this planet.

        • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 12:52 pm #

          Well, if you ascribe to germ theory, evolution largely includes the very recent ‘vaccine’ answer to the reason we aren’t extinct.

          What about the 200K years humans thrived before vaccines?

          If you ascribe to terrain theory, that is all explained.

          • JohnAZ May 21, 2021 at 1:02 pm #

            I ascribe to the theory that we are survivors of a evolutionary tug of war between our immune systems and the bugs. Species that lose that war go extinct.

            Vaccines are artificial ways of triggering the immune system, pointing it a specific antigens. Remember that Cancer is a genetic deviation that normall the immune system detects and killer Ts eliminate. When that does not happen, Cancer occurs.

            I believe pharma is playing with using the mRNA system to introduce specific cancer cell identifiers to sensitize the immune system to go kill the cancer cells. Think of Cancer DNA as an antigen instead of a spike protein.

          • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 3:09 pm #

            You don’t trust the human body immune system to do its job.

            I do, that’s where we differ.

            You want to improve upon God’s/Mother Nature’s design. I think tinkering with it by people who are acting out of desire for profit only is a dangerous and foolhardy thing to do.

        • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 1:12 pm #

    The direction is determined not by technocrat megalomaniacs but by the process called emergence, which means a self-organizing reality of more dynamic forces than any coterie of megalomaniacs could hope to control.

    Yet they control The News, gov’t, military, finance, the arts, food production, chemical production and blankies for all in a never-before-seen concentration of such abundant Wealth & Totalitarian Power.

    While Mr Kunstler is correct that a self-organizing reality of more dynamic forces than any coterie of megalomaniacs could hope to control will prevail, the game’s afoot and a coterie of megalomaniacs are, Right now, indeed trying to control the future of mankind.

    Truly, we all know that.

    • JohnAZ May 21, 2021 at 12:07 pm #

      Emergence may be the way things deeper than the megalomaniacs drive for power seem to take over. It seemed to be mission impossible before the Civil War, but the issue was resolved. In the past, emergence usually meant war when two factions faced irresolvable issues. War was annihilation of one side and assumption of the winners agenda. Rape was commonly utilized to drive this to the genetic level.

      The black cloud in America right now may be the fear that emergence is not possible, that the dark forces have won.

      For good reason. The hopefulness and optimism that has characterized the American populace seems to have flagged.

      Maybe because who resides in America right now are no longer the American people?

      • O.G. Hawkins May 21, 2021 at 12:28 pm #

        The American people make up 4.x% of mankind, JAZ.

        This is a global phenoma. Get over yourself.

        Emergence sounds to me like happenstance; like the Rothschilds and the Illuminati do not exist or are Powerless while, of course, they do and are not.

      Nah, man. Emergence has locked down all of the countries in the world after it created a fear porn video of Chinese writing in the streats due to the moderately annoying flu known as the Covids. And emergence created vaccine passport protypes in secret before slowly beginning to unroll them in 2021 after telling people such a thing would never happen.

      And emergence decided those passports are no longer called passports, they are global IDs that will just happen to contain all possible data about you. Emergence also wrote a sweet book on this called Covid-19 and The Great Reset.

      There are no megalomaniacs behind this at all. That would suggest that someone had a plan. No siree, this is all organizing itself.

      • Pete May 21, 2021 at 5:01 pm #

        Good Rant.

        I don’t think emergence as an organizing factor is mutually exclusive with megalomaniacs attempting to rule the world. There certainly is a never ending line up of Pinkies and Brains attempting such day after day.

        What lurks in the woodpile is black alright. But it’s a swan swimming in the confluence of emergence and megalomaniacal pressures.

        This scientist seems to have a good rant as well…

          Dr. Yeadon is a BRAVE man. People from big pharma who whistleblow have a tendency to get suicided or accidented. See: Brandy Vaughan, just this past year. She made the mistake of getting too large an audience (1 million plus).

          They told her that they were coming for her, too, and she did all the security she could around her home, but they got to her anyway, as they do. She was brave enough to report that they were threatening her. They don’t like that.

    Just a thought. Do you think that God has turned over the reins to humankind for the management of our species and the planet.

    People have been scratching their heads over the difference between the Old Testament God and the Love God of the New Testament. All the corruption and depravity of the Sodom and Gomorrah times were wiped out. Recent archeology confirms the existence of the two. God floods the earth to eliminate the ugliness of Man, He disperses the Babel crowd, He destroys two hideous cities. He uses direct intervention to deal with Man.

    Jesus was the final direct messenger from God. He taught that God was a Father figure, a coach, a mentor for Man. From the ascension on, it is in Man’s dominion to control himself. And we still suck at it.

    A real reason for concern in America is our drift toward the same depravity that condemned Sodom. God will not intercede under the Jesus covenant, because Man destroys himself.

    Watching the world from this perspective, it is easy to see why the End of Times may be approaching. Not caused by God, but by Man himself. God maybe just a janitor with a broom cleaning up the mess we leave behind.

    • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 12:03 pm #

      After watching a series on lost civilizations and realizing just how many episodes of “end times” we’ve already lived, I am guessing this is just another in long line of them. We don’t even know how many there actually have been.

      And, not just small civilizations, but entire world catastrophic events that wiped out almost everyone.

      History repeats itself whether we like it or not, or whether we learn from it or not, it would seem.

      Whether a God directed any of it is open for debate, but it seems to be how Mother Nature directs it.

      • JohnAZ May 21, 2021 at 12:13 pm #

        History repeats because the Evil which is the dark side of Man’s character never goes away and actually grows with time. God will not have to deal with the Evil of Man, Man will destroy himself.

        Consider a difference, MaryV, will history repeat when the end result of conflict resolution is mutual destruction.

        If Emergence never occurs?

        • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 12:37 pm #

          I just don’t see any possibility of the dark side of Man’s character changing or going away.

          It appears that that is what runs the whole show, sadly.

          And yet, the little people, we tend to mostly be good.

          To me, it looks like this is just the way it is. So, the bad ones get us to the point of total destruction because they are unable to rein themselves in, which is happening now, and the the civilization collapses.

          I wonder what it must be like living at the beginning of a burgeoning civilization’s cycle?

          • JohnAZ May 21, 2021 at 12:51 pm #

            Uh, the little people elected the rat’s nest that is DC now.

        Mary, in the Biblical sense, the “End Times” are still to come. They are prophesized throughout the Bible but most specifically in Daniel from The Old Testament and Revelation, the final Book of The New Testament.

        The collapses of the major empires are explained with a statue of 7 layers. Sumerians, Babylonians, Greeks, Romans, etc. (I’m sure Yoho will fact-check me [Thx, Big Guy!]).

        As in the days of Noah so shall mankind be when He returns like a thief in the night. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. He is seated at the Right-hand of our Father.

        The prophesized “End Times” includes, among myriad fulfillments, the stars falling from the sky. That has not happened yet. It will.

        I Hope that you can find God again, Mary. No church necessary. No religion necessary. You are God’s Temple. You are protecting God’s Temple by avoiding Satan’s kool-aid. God loves you.

        • JohnAZ May 21, 2021 at 12:39 pm #

          God is within you, he makes up part of your essence. All the good things that you are stem from God.

        • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 12:42 pm #

          Oh I have found God in my own way, O.G. It is the worship of his creations and the protection of them to which I have dedicated a good portion of my life. I will be fighting on Mother Nature’s side for as long as it’s possible.

          I just don’t ascribe to any one organized religion.

          I am probably more hyperaware of Satan’s kool-aide and how to avoid it than even the most religious folks.

          I gotta wonder, on that topic, why so many Christians go to Disneyland and watch all the Hollywood garbage? And why are so many of them porn addicts? That makes no sense to me.

          • O.G. Hawkins May 21, 2021 at 4:14 pm #

            That is Great to hear, Mary! Good for you! I believe that us Irish Catholics can use the teachings and ceremony, take the rest of the dogma with a grain (or bowl) of salt and find our own, personal Jesus. He will take it from there.

            ——

            As for porn: Men are weak. The female body stirs desires from deep in the reptilian portion of our brains.

            If Satan can make Sodom & Gamorah available 24x7x365 to all of mankind (he has), he will ensnare billions (he has).

            In the interview for it, Matthew Perry was drunk or drugged. Really embarrassing.

            The others look used up and spit out. And so it goes, with the Hwood life. Me, all I can do is laugh at them.

      Modern western “civilization” with its sexual depravity, abortion and general insanity makes Sodom and Gomorrah look like nunneries. If God does intervene – as a sort of deist, I don’t believe he does – it would have to be around now.

    • O.G. Hawkins May 21, 2021 at 12:50 pm #

      A religious belief holding that God created the universe and established rationally comprehensible moral and natural laws but does not intervene in human affairs through miracles or supernatural revelation.

      Sometimes God lets His creation run under those moral and natural laws while He observes. Like old Job.

      Other times He kicks butt. As in the days of Noah or Sodom & Gamorah.*

      God has been “laying low” since the Ascension. Now it is time for the Biblical fireworks that He has prophesized.

      *Sodom & Gamorah had nothing on internet porn.

      I used to be a christian but found it too full of absurdities, most notable of which was christians saying how God intervened at this or that time in History – usually to their benefit. I see no evidence of this. Good triumphing over Evil is rare and seems to occur through Chance. If God didn’t intervene to stop the Holocaust, then he doesn’t intervene. The evidence to me suggests there IS a God or Great Designer (choose your title) but that he gave us a moral code, a conscience and Reason and let us get on with it. I hope that doesn’t offend anyone here because you’re a great bunch. Just me sounding off!

        “The evidence to me suggests there IS a God or Great Designer (choose your title) but that he gave us a moral code, a conscience and Reason and let us get on with it.”

        Do you believe Jesus followed this “moral code”?

      • O.G. Hawkins May 21, 2021 at 6:35 pm #

        If God didn’t intervene to stop the Holocaust, then he doesn’t intervene.

        You presume to know God’s motives Better than God does, H the W?

        That is not Good Police work even if we were assessing the motives of a mere mortal let alone Almighty God.

  21. MaryV May 21, 2021 at 12:22 pm #

    Another great article, James. Thank you.

    I cannot imagine things improving for humanity until and unless we get over our addiction to screens. Screens have been indoctrinating us for decades, to the point where we no longer know how to survive without them. They serve many purposes, among them being 1) mindless distraction; and 2) propaganda and indoctrination delivery.

    Günther Anders from 1956:

    ”To suffocate any revolt in advance, it must not be violent. Hitler’s types of methods are outdated. Just create a collective conditioning so powerful that the very idea of revolt will no longer come to the minds of men.

    The ideal would be to format individuals from birth by limiting their innate biological skills. Secondly, conditioning would be continued by drastically reducing education, to bring it back to a form of professional integration. An uncultured individual has only a limited horizon of thought and the more his thought is restricted to mediocre concerns, the less he can revolt. Access to knowledge must be made increasingly difficult and elitist. Let the divide be widened between the people and science, let the information intended for the general public be anesthetized with any subversive content.

    Especially no philosophy. Again, persuasion must be used not direct violence: massively, through television, entertainment will always flatter the emotional or instinctive. We’ll occupy the minds with what’s futile and playful. It’s good, in chattering and incessant music, to keep the mind from thinking. Sexuality will be the forefront of human interests. As a social tranquilizer, there’s nothing better.

    Generally, we will make sure to ban the seriousness of existence, deride everything of high value, maintain a constant apology of lightness, so that the euphoria of advertising becomes the standard of human happiness and the model of freedom. Conditioning will thus produce such integration itself, that the only fear – which must be maintained – will be that of being excluded from the system and thus of not having access to the conditions necessary for happiness.
    The mass man, thus produced, should be treated as what he is: a calf, and he should be watched as a flock should be. Anything to sleep his lucidity is good socially, what would threaten to awaken him must be ridiculed, suffocated, fought. Any doctrine involving the system must first be designated as subversive and terrorist and those supporting it should then be treated as such. ??

    Günther Anders, ?? The Obsolescence of Man “, 1956

    Very prescient, this Mr. Anders.

    • JohnAZ May 21, 2021 at 12:35 pm #

      Did you say Screens? I’ve done work in this area investigating a new type of screen for something we call “DNS Cinema.” (The hip version of the name is “RefLEX Cinema.”) Anyway, DNS stands for Dual Narration Screen and its easy to illustrate, less so to describe. You are right though – the mono-screen is not doing any good anymore.

      Knowing full well how bad screens are for young children, the teacher’s union was able to compel “remote learning” under cover of a plandemic, which boils down to no leaning at all, and torment for the pupils.

      Unintentional double entendre.

      I’m thinking the churches going to ZOOM services made it easy to spy on them to see if they weren’t fomenting any of that rebellion or anything.

      BTW, anybody hear anything from any American religious leaders about that Canadian pastor forced to his knees and handcuffed in the middle of a busy wet roadway, for the crime of holding church services?

      • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 1:37 pm #

        YES. We were starting to realize screens may be bad for us, so then magically along comes Zoom, where we are forced onto screens for school and work.

The yakking, the high pitched voices, the rapid speech and loudness. I get irritated instantly hearing it. I have to leave the room.

            @Blackbird – Perhaps this has been discussed before but I watched an HBO documentary entitled “Kill Chain”. It is a deeply disturbing documentary on cyber hacking of election systems. Although it is totally slanted toward the 2016 Trump win and Russia hacking it sets the stage for the 2020 election fraud. It’s a must see.

            There are clips of Georgia governor Brian Kemp testifying before congress that there is no way voting machines can be hacked. In fact, he’s so smart that when a judge ordered Georgia to change it’s voting machines from Diebold he chose the very company they had sold their voting machine division to… none other than DOMINION.

            Votes are cummulative. Simple whole numbers.

            1 + 1 + 1 + … + 1 = x

            1 + 1 + 1 + … + 1 = y

            There is no reason for votng machines at all. Elections were ran by simple addition for centuries. The very idea of Diebold or Dominion is ludicrous. All sorts of cost then suspicion for what? To add?

            I am fairly convinced that Trump was controlled opposition, and they needed someone to install TDS into the lib’s brains so that they’d always be controlled using Trump. And what do you know, that’s what happened.

            I have a few sources who are reliable and say all the presidents are selected years beforehand. I’m sure that they have to adjust here and there, but seriously, in 2016 it seemed like it was a done deal for HRC until the last minute.

    “What percentage of victims have been jabbed? I need the raw data of who got which kool-aid complete with manufacturer’s lot numbers.”

    —-

    Also, I still await answers on logical analysis of:

    A year ago, we were told of the impossible task of stream-lining a vax to solve this World crisis. Vaxxes take decades but our Science community are going to pull all the stops the worried sheeple are told.

    Then, within a year, there are not 1 or even 2 impossible vaxxes but 6!

    Pfizer
    Moderna
    J&J
    AZ
    Sputnik
    Chinese

    Who’s buying that shit? 6 impossible streamlines all coming within a month or two of each other.

    “What? The NYPD shut-down your toll-both on the bridge that I sold ya last week? No way! Did you show him the paper-work that I provided? Did you get a badge number? I’m going to look into this for you, free of charge. I need time to talk to the Right people at City Hall. Call me again next Tuesday, ok?”

    We all know that they have been working on this kool-aid since SARS in 2003 but every time they injected this new cellular-altering gene technology into animals, they all died.

    Interesting how 12 & under are exempt. Right?

      I am surprised to see the investigation into this new disease hasn’t branched out to major medical centers/teaching hospitals all over the world.

      Who knows what diagnostics have been done on these 48 patients? There should be a standard of diagnostics like MRI, specific labs etc. for comparison. Histories must be compared including any jabs, which ones and when they were received.

      The authorities in Canada need to bring in some top gun researchers to get on this one.

      Reiterate that survival on planet Earth is a continuous battle between us and the microbe world. Maybe the toxicity of the rest of the world also.

      Question, like Typhoid Mary, is there a center to the outbreak, indicating a contagion?

      Are these people affected from a common genetic stock causing an inherited weakness to something?

    Many of us have foreseen this, because we understand what the true goal of the Covid19 hoax is. I’ve been posting that the vaccine is the pandemic, because it follows the template of other man-made (by Fauxi & co) plandemic hoaxes. When will we wake up?

    “Bombshell: Nobel Prize Winner Reveals – Covid Vaccine is ‘Creating Variants’

    Prof. Luc Montagnier said that epidemiologists know but are “silent” about the phenomenon, known as “Antibody-Dependent Enhancement” (ADE).

    While it is understood that viruses mutate, causing variants, French Virologist and Nobel Prize Winner Luc Montagnier contends that “it is the vaccination that is creating the variants.”

    The 2008 Nobel Laureate made the explosive comments as part of a larger interview with Pierre Barnérias of Hold-Up Media earlier this month. The clip was exclusively translated for RAIR Foundation USA, and is quite damning for the agenda-driven left-wing establishment.

    As reported at RAIR in April of last year, Prof. Montagnier presented a powerful case that the coronavirus was created in a lab. His comments at the time offended the left-wing establishment so much that they aggressively attempted to discredit his statement. Now, the media is backpedaling on the origin of the coronavirus after prominent scientists called for further scrutiny.”

    The above headline is incorrect in that the murder took place the same day in the early hours of the morning when it was still dark.

    In this very creepy video, you can see both twins in the crib with the Orc lurking about and standing over them.

    The Orc kidnaps the first one while it’s still dark outside but comes back later when it’s daylight and stands there staring at the remaining twin. I suspect he was planning to kill Cash’s brother as well but probably thought he couldn’t get away with carrying him off and down the street in broad daylight, murdering him and dumping the body as he did with the other child- too much risk of bein

      We are one step removed form vaccine passports to travel, work, or shop, but the idea that the WEF is trying to do what said they want to do is some kind of myth. […] Very disappointing piece.

      I enjoyed the essay, not least because JHK reiterated the main point I’ve been arguing for a long time: that Klaus Schwab and his WEF can prance and dance all they like with their self-serving and self-promoting jive (The Great Reset – A Kinder Form of Global Capitalism), but it’s not where the real problems, solutions, and power lie.

      In fact the whole WEF / Davos thing has lost a lot of glitter and influence since 2007-2008 … the likes of Tim Geithner, Hank Paulson and all the rest can’t and don’t swan around luxury Swiss hotels like they’re Masters of the Universe any more. Much of the hubris has gone – even more since the pandemic.

      Anyway, the Great Pandemic Hoax, the Great Vaccine Weapon, the Great Reset, the Great Depopulation … all nice distraction myths for those of a fevered mind … but they are myths.

      America (and the EU) have a wide range of real problems swirling around in an unholy mess – a toxic brew of a parlous economic structure, a corrupted financial system, unemployment and wage stagnation, obscene wealth at the top, and failing infrastructure.

      Mix in a hyper-partisan political arena, huge racial and cultural divides, and the poisoning of just about every societal institution by bias and blatant partisanship – even though their virtue and social license to operate should be (used to be) objectivity, neutrality, fairness, strictly by the book – the law, law enforcement, the courts, bureaucracy, schools, and the media.

      These are where the real issues and challenges lie … nobody seriously considers Klaus Schwab and the WEF are worth a pinch of shit, in the real scale of things. They are simply not that influential, powerful, smart, or coordinated.

      Pay the mortgage, be nice to your mom, play golf, go to art galleries … and we’ll see you all back again same time next year.

          If you find that amusing, then I can only put it down to the surfeit of zinc in Idaho potatoes.

    Please lend me your eyes/ears, all of you purveyors of the tyranny of happy endings, future denizens of Utopia, the consequence-free planet:

    Nothing exists outside duality.

    Perfection is freedom from choice. (Perfection is not having to chose*.)

    Perfection is nothingness.

    * Willingly being bossed around is how simple folk manifest their yearning for perfection. (Simple folk become confused, act erratically and can even rebel when the rulers are weak, failing to exert clear, authoritative leadership, the only way to appease that longing.)
    Logical folk often feel confused (=sad and/or angry) because they have a hard time trying to square that to strive for betterment (perfection) is to aim at nothing(ness).

    The Trans Parade, cancelled last year because of Covid, is on!

    It’s part of Pride Week. Local TV stations give the event comprehensive, all day coverage. The main attraction in the parade are outrageous 300 lbs. men on floats, dressed up like divas, with big bouffant hair, heavy make up, black fishnet stockings, glittery dresses and flashy jewelry, gyrating to Alicia Bridges “I Love the Nightlife”, broadcast at 120 decibels. I caught some of it from a boat on the Connecticut River a few years ago. Its billed as a family event. I suppose its harmless enough.

    Supposed to be a warm weekend, the first of the spring, which usually signals the start of Shooting Season in Hartford, New Haven and Bridgeport. The 2021 season is predicted to be epic.

    Once upon a time war was profitable , at least if you won.

    And not necessarily only profitable for arms dealers and the ruling class.

    Like , for example , somewhere in the 17th or 18th Century the British Isles crossed a threshold where they could no longer adequately feed , clothe , and house their population out of their own resources.

    Now they NEEDED foreign markets and foreign supplies.

    And it is probably better if you control those foreign markets and supply sources.

    Hence the British Empire , which I suppose pretty much everyone has heard of.

    But there were many other examples of the same ; What the fuck were Dutchmen doing in Borneo ??

    Same reason.

    Grrr , now I suppose I’m going to sound all Snowflaky ( But read on , the really grim shit is coming. )

    Unfortunately though , war has become so effective and so efficient that it destroys the profits too , and likewise destroys the very power you were seeking to wield in the first place.

    So , steadily , increasingly , throughout the 20th Century and now into the 21st ,

    Where the policeman , or the policeman disguised as a school teacher , used to follow the soldier ,

    now the soldier follows behind the policeman , or the soldier is even just a decoration.

    ( Like Sweden hasn’t been to war in 200 years , and my East Germany never did go to war . But the police in both countries need scarcely have even noticed. )

    Increasingly the enemy isn’t really some person or persons in Nepal or Yemen , but a person or persons in your very neighborhood.

    ( But that person or persons couldn’t possibly be YOU , right ? )

    And the war is —

    — Well, as MaryV keeps saying the conspiracy is hardly hiding in the dark , more often that not you are told outright and plainly exactly what the deal is.

    War on poverty ( which seems to be working out as a war on poor people , not a war on lack of steaks in the icebox . )

    War on bigotry ( But it sure seems like the definition of bigotry just keeps expanding , and expanding , and expanding. )

    War on drugs ( which seems pretty darn PROFITABLE for lawyers , police , court stenographers , probation officers , social workers , etc , etc , etc , long before we get to the actual drug traffickers )

    Do you , by any chance , see a pattern here ?

    At least every third TV show or movie is a police drama , in one guise or another.

    Like , it sure looks to me like your typical super hero movie or TV show is basically a police drama.

    The Super hero is basically a policeman , only in a gaudier and more outlandish costume.
    With the wrinkle thrown in that our super hero is not just an ordinary asshole like the rest of us.

    No , our Super hero is an honest – to – God representative of the Aryan Master Race. ( Except we don’t use that term , of course , so its all good ! )

    Let’s talk about the War on Terror.

    I wish I could find some idiot who was willing to bet me 10,000 dollars that I can leave my chair right now , without peeking first , and within five minutes find a movie or TV show on the tube involving Serial Killers.

    Shit and fried eggs !

    The odds that you will encounter a serial killer in a dark alley are about the same as the odds that you will die of Covid …..

    Those are my numbers , of course ,

    — Except they aren’t.

    They are the numbers coming from the very people who want you to throw another billion at policing.

    They are the numbers coming from the very people who want you to jump through another hoop on account of Covid.

    Addressing terrorism more specifically , add up all the casualties from all the terrorist acts in every country on the planet in a given year ,

    and the odds are still greater , much greater , that you will die in an auto accident , of heart disease from all those cheeseburgers you voluntarily ate , or you die from simple stress because your spouse or your parents are such total assholes.

    War ON Terror ?

    It looks to me suspiciously like a war FOR terror.

    Now I have no doubt that it is true , as some have said , that the politicians have finally figured out that they can print money to infinity , so they can continue this war on everybody , by everybody , in perpetuity .

    The bad news , or the good news , depending on how you look at it , is that YOU cannot do the same.

    For you there is no free lunch. Everything costs something.

    And jumping through hoops is no exception.

    Jumping through hoops costs money.

    And sooner or later they are going to raise a hoop for you to jump through and you will not be able to afford it , and will find yourself criminalized.

    Or , lol , you could say that you just joined the East German Army by default.

    Or , well , I suppose some of you folks really are Angels , right ?

    OK , so the point is they will sooner or later criminalize one too many other people. And so you will wind up in the Hell of the trenches right along with us , Angel though you may be.

    • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 8:09 pm #

      Uncannily timely. Was just watching a YouTube by a guy I find interesting, and he was talking about how the TV shows/movies went from making the good guy the ‘hero’ to making the bad guys the ‘heros’, like mafia and cops, and then now they are making demons and monsters and mass murders the heros in movies and series.

      Even I didn’t see it/notice it years ago, this has been something I have come to see clearly in the past 5 years.

      As I come to these realizations, I move farther away from pop culture and recent movies. I like the old stuff, when there was actual art involved. Music after the 1980s also seems to suck for the most part.

      • Blackbird May 21, 2021 at 9:09 pm #

        Clint Eastwood’s “Man with No Name” was the trailblazer for me. Technically maybe he was “morally ambiguous”, but even back then we kids knew he was a bad guy – that’s why he was cool. Promoting the outlaw (Easy Rider, 1969), the criminal (Bonnie and Clyde, 1967), or even a good guy as long as he’s ultra-violent (Walking Tall, 1973), became Hollywood’s new message. Part of the psyop called the “Youth Rebellion”.

      • KesaAnna May 21, 2021 at 9:14 pm #

        Interesting psychology perhaps.

        The good guys have become the bad guys.

        They know it , secretly .

        But ………

        It’s itching to break through , though.

        I had already been introduced to the idea that I’m the monster when I was all of ten years old.

        So I don’t have that problem.

        Like , a little art project I have been ruminating on lately is that I want to mesh this song ;

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktoaj1IpTbw

        with this scene ;

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmBvUtJDyJg

        ( There’s no end of smut coming out of Hollywood and Washington , so it always kinda irked me why nobody did a movie that remotely did justice to the Dirlewanger Brigade .

        All the prurient , morbid goodness there you could ever want.

        Turns out my Soviet pals did so , back in 1985 ! )

        Grr , the entire scene is about 20 minutes. The song is only four minutes .

        Problems !

        Shows like “Dexter” and “Breaking Bad”? I saw a little of each, and knew a lot of people who were fans, but couldn’t get into them.

        There is one show I did get into and watched faithfully and looking back, cannot believe how well played I was. Remember “24” ?

        Debuted Nov 2001, two months after 9/11. I know filming started the previous January, and was probably green-lighted a year or two before that. Still an interesting coincidence, in hindsight.

        • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 9:40 pm #

          I liked Breaking Bad, but I was under no illusion that the ‘hero’ was not a fiend. I thought it was well done, because it showed the steps and circumstances and psychology involved in becoming a monster. It actually taught me some stuff.

          Dexter, though? They found a way to make a serial murderer ‘likeable’. Yuck.

          Agree with Mary on Breaking Bad. Good story, no attempt to whitewash Walter White. The train robbery sequence was to me the most suspenseful few minutes in TV history.

          Dexter, yeah, whitewashing serial killing as long as it’s “the right people”. Should have made him a true, evil, psychopath – get adventurous, make the viewer uncomfortable. Dexter teaming up with Miguel Prado was totally out-of-character.

          Anything with Kiefer Sutherland is a no-go for me. Can’t stand him. Not sure why, don’t plan to change.

          Gotta admit I enjoyed Sons of Anarchy finally watching it on Netflix long after its original run. While the no-consequences mayhem stretched the bungee straps of credibility, Jax’s death scene cancelled that debt.

          • MaryV May 21, 2021 at 11:44 pm #

            Wow, yes, the train robbery was brilliant, as was most of the series. Jesse served as conscience of a near-normal person caught up in insanity, I can identify with that given our current situation.

            What an incredible character sketch of each person. I found it brilliant.

            Couldn’t get into Sons of Anarchy, or 24. Agree – Keifer Sutherland is unlikeable to me.

            Dexter tried to make serial killing actually funny. Just, no.

            As the Cop told the blind girl about Red Dragon: He wasn’t a Freak, he had a Freak on his back. Same with Dexter. He only killed those who met the code. He was no danger to good people. Are there any people really like that? Probably not. Maybe that is our loss?

    If we’re talking a material peak year of the U.S., I’d vote for 1971, specifically August 14, 1971, the day before Nixon abrogated the Bretton Woods agreement and turned the U.S. economy into a hot air balloon – which was later moored to Saudi Arabia. Also, at the end of 1971, Earl “Rusty” Butz became Secretary of Agriculture. He told farmers to “get big or get out”, making government policy the destruction of family farms, and planting the seeds for the globalized agriculture we now can’t live without. Nixon was reacting, however, to problems inherited from the free-spending Johnson (as well as creating his own, new problems).

    If we’re talking about a material and cultural peak year, it was before the Great Mistakes of ’64 and ’65. How about 1963? A good specific date would be November 22, 1963 – but I think that assumes too much of the martyred JFK. A better date, in my opinion, would be November 22, 1962, the day Castro was told that the Soviets were taking the nukes back home. JFK had successfully surfed the tsunami unleashed by the Bay of Pigs fiasco, and now had the opportunity to “splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds”, as well as quagmires not-to-step-into overseas and a kettle on the stove about to boil over back home. Two more years until the next election – in what direction would he lead? I’m not sure a year since 1963 has seen such widespread optimism in the U.S.

      JFK walking on the beach – an Irish American God. Establishment Nerd, Nixon, “imitates” him by walking on the beach in his suit and penny loafers.

      That being said, JFK was all over the place ideologically, one time even talking about disarming America in favor of Globalism. But in the end, he seem to divine a great Threat against America and it may have cost him his life.

      And Nixon knew that Israel was doomed in long term. He wasn’t a fool about everything. He knew how to handle violent Black protestors too.

    “Ink,” the latest short film by Santa Monica College student
    Osvaldo “Ozzy” Ozuna, addresses the trauma caused by family separations at the U.S. border.

    Years after being forced away from his mother by immigration agents, a teen desperately tries to draw her face to reconstitute his memories of her. Despite the film’s dark undertones, Ozzy wanted to convey a sense of hope.
    The film’s images are as vivid as its subject is personal, and based on the trauma Ozzy’s own family has endured.

    Huff Post, Lee Moran

    A former Secret Service agent has detailed the racist abuse that was leveled at Michelle Obama during her time as first lady, and her frustration and inability as an assigned protector to do anything about it.

    “I could do nothing,” Evy Poumpouras told Insider in an article published Wednesday. “There’s freedom of speech in the United States, and even if I personally feel that speech is wrong, the law doesn’t give me the power to take that person’s speech away.”

    “When it came to speech, they could call them names,” Poumpouras recalled. “They could say whatever they wanted so long as there was no imminent threat of harm.”

    In Poumpouras’ 2020 memoir “Becoming Bulletproof,” she revealed how Obama had as the first Black first lady withstood “certain kinds of disparagement that none of her predecessors ever faced.”

    She recalled one particularly ugly incident:

    I was on her protective detail when we were driving to a school to deliver a speech; we passed someone on a bridge holding up a shockingly racist sign directed at her. I remember feeling outraged — after all, it was part of our job to protect the first family mentally as well as physically. But if the first lady saw the sign, she gave no indication of it. We arrived at the school and she walked out with her head held high, ready to inspire all of the students eagerly waiting for her.

    Yoho: It was their job to protect the first family mentally? Really? News to me. So no more First Amendment I guess?

    I know a businessman whose Motto is: “The paranoid survive.”

    Pol Pot was paranoid.

    During its height in 1977, the Khmer Rouge torture facility in Phnom Penh, Tuol Sleng, ran out of fellow Khmer Rouge officials imported from the provinces to torture and kill, so they started torturing and killing the Tuol Sleng guards (about one third to two-thirds were eventually “smashed”) and then began grinding up the wives and girlfriends of tortured and executed prisoners.

    One survival strategy at the time was to shout politically correct slogans at the Tuol Sleng guards, which the guards and staff found very frustrating because politically correct slogans about the hated Vietnamese and revanchist recovery of lost historic Cambodian territory make piss-poor Confessions. Eventually, the guards would just beat the subject up first and tell him which politically correct slogans were forbidden to utter before the torture began.

    Check out this Muslim Father and Son. Completely assimilated into the American middle class – cowardly wimps in other words.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IfCSEX0V44

    If you can’t get angry, you’re probably going to get your ass kicked. Anger energizes the body and prepares you. So does fear. But you have to really feel it. The son was caught in a “socialized state” and didn’t know what to do. So he watched his father get knocked out with one blow and then screeched while he got used as a punching bag.

    Good kids never cause problems for mommy, teacher, boss. Maybe a woman can get away with being like this, but a man? This is just the way the Elite want us to be. A true American success story. Citizens!

    Most Muslims aren’t like this by any means. Classically, they raise their sons to feel like they’re Kings. They’re not liking this a bit, I bet. No one expects an intellectual like this to be a great fighting man. But he could have at least tried to defend his father. This is getting too far away from the lower man and the animal instinct.

    Yohannon said, “Even the racial crisis is predicted: The Toes will of the Giant will be of clay. Metal can meld with other metals, not with clay. Thus it wobbles and it will topple.”

    I took it the other way. We are made of clay. In this metaphor the rulers of empires were metallic [ different in kind from clay Gen.6 ]. Giants have adapted but clay can be made i n t o ceramics.

      But the metaphor is about Empires, so your example doesn’t apply. The earlier Empires are of more precious metals, and are thus higher. But since they are all metal, they can be melded together, handing the baton off to the next. But the Iron can’t pass the baton of Civilization on to the clay (the dark races). All Western Civilization can do now is fall.

        “And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken?. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay,

        they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men:

        but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.'”

        It is your example that doesn’t apply. We have been ruled over by demons and their offspring [ tares ] since the beginning. The last cataclysm killed off most of them, or we would never have had a chance.

        If you look at Psalm 2:9 and Revelation 2:27, you will see that iron is a symbol of a ruling power. So in terms of the world, iron would denote a civil ruling world power. And what about the clay? If you read Isaiah 64:8 and Jeremiah 18:1-6, you will see that clay in the Bible denotes the people of God.

        But, the clay is dirty, muddy clay. So what does that tell us? It tells us that the church represented by the clay in the feet is a corrupt, apostate church.

        It is the combination of civil and religious [ = tyranny ] that is corrupting Western Civilization.

    Makes me laugh, “an elaborate joke, really,” sez our esteemed host, and that it surely is, and those four words will no doubt resonate as one of the top10 understatements of the 21st Century.

    The jokesters have surely got some gigantic misconceptions about themselves, their power, their schemes, their state of knowledge of the world and its varied people which they apparently think they can control, which I most humbly submit that they do not and cannot. If they THINK they can, which they most surely DO think, then they are outta their cotton pickin’ minds, which judging by the many economic and financial and military follies they’ve delivered up, they most surely are. Outta their cotton pickin’ minds that is.

    I must have read a dozen times in the past few years pundits lamenting the end of the liberal world order, as if its passing was something to be mourned, as if this liberal world order was something even workable in the first place. It wasn’t workable, not even close, wishful thinking at the core of it, political and economic theoreticians having built in contradictions that not even reasonably astute tenth graders could have missed.

    And those contradictions in fact weren’t missed, in fact, they were pointed out over and over by many people over the past few decades, for example, by one presidential aspirant of the early 1990s who was mocked by his purported betters who thought they knew better. Well, they didn’t. And by later presidential contenders, one of which was sandbagged by his own party and who thus failed in his campaign, and by another, who, against all odds, and contrary to the expectations of elite and considered and seasoned opinion, won the big prize.

    But there were many, many other people that knew that these arrangements would fail, that it was just a matter of time. And the human project is surely going somewhere as our host writes, just not in the direction of the megalomaniac dreamers.

    An incredible notion, they actually thought that American workers and others in the western world would accept destitution and ruin with equanimity, they actually thought they could make those men in Beijing do their bidding, as if those guys were puppets of board-rooms in Manhattan and legislative offices in Washington, they actually thought they could change the Chinese, a civilization that was old when George Washington was in short pants. Somebody once said that we have Shakespeare, but the Chinese have many. As for the Persians, they’re in their third millennium as an imperial power, having already fought the ancient Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, and any unfortunate locals that drew their attention.

    I’m repeating myself but what the hell, the Middle East is a civilizational layer-cake that’s ten thousand years deep, there’s artifacts in China eight thousand years old that have symbols on them that look like writing. Most of the world is like that, a product of societies and civilizations millennia old. The people there aren’t chess pieces, they have ideas and agendas of their own, they will do what suits them, and it was the height of absurdity for a handful of wealthy men from western financial capitols and their apologists from universities to suppose otherwise.

    Never mind about a Great Reset, one supposedly about the public good. It’s never about that, in the end it’s all about money and power and advantage, a small coterie bending and breaking stuff so it all accrues to them, but even so, things have to actually work, which by the evidence of the naked eye, they do not. JHK calls it entropy, and you can certainly call it that, I think of it as unmanageable forces in a world of people and things doing what they do. I think it was Lenin that said that nothing happens for decades and then in days decades happen. But nobody knows when those days will be when decades happen.

            “I will not enumerate all the crimes that have been committed under the pretext of justice. People robbed native inhabitants of their land, made slaves of them, let loose the scum of mankind upon them. Think of the atrocities that were perpetrated upon people made subservient to us, how systematically we have ruined them… We decimate them, and then, by the stroke of a pen, we take their land so they have nothing left at all…” (Schweitzer)

            “I have given my life to try to alleviate the sufferings of Africa. There is

            they will either destroy him or devour him. And they will destroy all of his
            work. Let white men from anywhere in the world, who would come to Africa,
            remember that you must continually retain this status; you the master and
            they the inferior like children that you would help or teach. Never
            fraternise with them as equals. Never accept them as your social equals or
            they will devour you. They will destroy you.” –

            Dr. Albert Schweitzer, winner of the 1952 Nobel Prize for peace, in his
            1961 book, From My African Notebook.

            Yoho: Will you not learn now, at the last? I admit that if we go back to hunter gathering or even agriculture, we will not need the high IQ that we have evolved. But I for one, would like to keep it. Thus my tribe will remain aloof from others; from other races or from tribes like yours that don’t think IQ or race matter. And your social justice tribe is doomed from the get go in any case, so the question is moot.

            Everything he says there can describe (and he may have even intended to describe) a cultural inferiority, not a genetic. Of course africans were culturally inferior. They had been railroaded by 3 centuries of colonization and uprooting by then.

            And i’m not sure i would share schweitzer’s assumptions about the value of the “civilization” he represented, measured contemporary africans against, and proselytized for either.

            And the “IQ” difference? Again, what value is this “intelligence quotient” if its great creation is a modern globalized economics set to blow stupidly like a time-bomb?

            And what false assumptions underlie “IQ”?

            And are you underrepresenting the intelligence of primitive tribal peoples in key ways? I think so.

          • gustafson.robert.22 May 22, 2021 at 1:32 pm #

            I know you would like everyone to either be an sjw or an actual racist (true believer in absolute or significant genetic inferiority between human groups as opposed to believing that most significant value differences are cultural)… or both, but unfortunately we live in a world where one can be neither. I don’t care about social justice for anyone…except maybe intact primitive tribes…

            To me, efforts to justify conflict with another group by rationalizing some inferiority theory are unnecessary anyway. You want to take a certain group out? Go for it. Just do it. If you think it’s the right thing, put that plan into action. Desiring conflict is probably justification enough if the desire is real. Then, if “god is on your side” or what have you, you win. Or not.

        Interesting idea.

        Could it be that the move into a “better idea” government wise requires liberal ideas and attitudes until the change is made but then requires traditionalist, conservative ideas to maintain the newly created credos.

        IOW, we need a balance of both. Something, as with all former empires, eventually goes away. Compromise dies as one side ascends. Dictatorship emerges as the empire dies.

        Ethnocentrism triumphs, evil wins, good is diminished. The wheel turns.

          Onerous Garbagebrain wants to know how many people died in the concentration camps in WW2. He keeps on asking me, and whether or not I’ve said I’d do research on it, obviously I haven’t. So why does he keep asking me, when he could look it up himself very easily? Seems to me he has another agenda.

          Concerning magnetism in covid shots, that doesn’t make sense. First, the accounts of this occurring are anecdotal. Are they true? I’ve had the jabs and I tried hanging a magnet on my shoulder to no avail. Why would they put magnetic material in some shots and not in others? My father couldn’t wear any wristwatch without it prematurely stopping. We concluded he might have some-built in magnetic field. I never really believed it, but I couldn’t understand why all watches he wore stopped running within a few hours.

        @ po

        Don’t know about the demonizing thingie but Fauci looks to be increasingly in the position of one who starts a fire and then complains that the rest of us aren’t doing enough to put it out. The Wade article, absent any evidence that definitively proves a natural origin of the SARS2 virus, is a pretty damning argument that Fauci et al at minimum have some ‘splainin to do.

        The anger directed at the lockdowns and the Orwellian groupthink of the vaccine pushers finds a convenient focus in the person of Fauci. That would no doubt be unfair if he had nothing to do with prying the lid off of Pandora’s box but at present, again absent any evidence to the contrary, the stink of negligence (hubris?) and obfuscation lingers in Fauci’s wake…

        • O.G. Hawkins May 22, 2021 at 2:34 pm #

          Negligence and hubris lead to negative but unintended consequences.

          Dr Anthony Fauci is not negligent and this is not the result of his hubris.

          This is a fallacious and illogical argument. “Absent any evidence to the contrary …” – what sort of legal principle is that? “Absent any evidence to the contrary, KoC is guilty of murder.”

          Fauci is not a showman nor a great public speaker – yet he was placed in an unbearable position of having to tolerate the lies and BS from Trump for a year … anybody would be hard-pushed to do so.

          Obviously I don’t believe Dr Fauci is up to anything nefarious, and nor is he in their for personal financial gain beyond his salary … the reasons the US might have been cooperating with the Chinese on coronavirus research – I’m sure there are good epidemiological reasons for doing so.

    Agree completely with the idea of ’emergence’ as a solution to chaos. To me this another word for the hand of God in our misbegotten affairs influenced by the creator of chaos, the devil. Thomas Aquinas could have used it as another proof of God or a Higher Power if you will.

    Every time a sperm gets into an egg, emergence, creation happens. One cell organizes into three trillion cells that coordinate themselves with thousands of reactions a minute enough to make a home for a human mind.

    What does it? DNA, mRNA, ribosomes and proteins.

    Wow, a bonafide miracle. You think God, DNA has a hand in it somehow?

    The universe is comprised of trillions, quadrillions of stars each with their own function. The human body is comprised of trillions of cells, each with its own function.

    No where else is the complexity more obvious than the workings and coordination of the immune system.

    Existence of everything from nothing is a miracle and it happens every single second. The agent for creation is the supreme miracle, call Him God or call Him Yahweh.

    Something from nothing! Anti entropy! A miracle from the Author of all miracles!

      Where did evil come from? Is it a natural law that all things are bipolar? Seems to me that things would be a lot easier if evil had never been created!

      It seems like there is a spectrum of evil, little white lie evils, progressing up to big evils and the acquisition of evil is very individualistic. Is evil built in and varies from person to person? Is the perversion of a person built in, genetically? Is the decline in the human genome that is being tracked include the resistance to evil, ie Good? Is that why things seem to be going south from so many directions?

      Are the End Times built in and inevitable?

      Where did evil originate? Is the ultimate big evil the destruction of all forms of creation?

    JohnAZ asked, “Where did evil originate?”

    “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.” Isa. 45:7

    “One of the most difficult and persistent questions in history is how a loving God could allow evil to occur in the earth. Usually, men explain evil as a creation of Satan in order to remove all responsibility from God’s shoulders. Yet the problem with that view is that it lessens the problem but does not resolve it fully. The leftover problems that this explanation leaves must be ignored in order to make the theory workable.

    For instance, if Satan is the creator of evil, who created him? Did not God create him? Did God create a defective angel? Was Satan a perfect angel with a free will which caused him to sin? Do all angels have free will? Is God taken by surprise when an angel falls? Is not a creator responsible for what he creates?

    The common explanation to the problem of creative responsibility is “free will.” If Satan has a free will, then he is said to be fully responsible for all that he does, leaving God innocent of anything evil that happens in the world.

    This principle then extends to man as well. If man does evil, then he does so by his total free will, leaving God innocent of anything that men do.

    These explanations come at the expense of God’s sovereignty, of course. Is God incapable of creating any being without giving them a free will? Is God really an innocent Bystander in history? Is God really a helpless Superman in the sky who has all the POWER to stop evil, but is too much of a Gentleman to do much about it?

    The leftover problems are: (1) When God created beings with free will, did He not know that they would start doing evil things? (2) Is a Creator not responsible for that which He creates? (3) Why would a good and all-knowing God create either spiritual or physical beings with the capability of doing evil things?

    We are usually told that such things were necessary in order to avoid creating a bunch of robots. Well, first of all, necessity does not remove liability. We are back to our original question, except that instead of asking how a good God could create evil (or evil beings with free will) we must now ask what it was that seemed to compel God to create them this way. And how does such reasoning eliminate God’s liability?

    We have been told that this was the only way God could end up with a quality product in the end of time, and that God knew ahead of time that only a tiny percentage of men would “pass the test” and become the sons of God. We are left with the impression that God did not like this result—that He grieves over it—and yet this All-Wise God could find no other way to achieve His goal of bringing forth children.

    The bottom line is that God’s sovereignty and wisdom are greatly eroded by this explanation. The view first postulates spiritual beings who do things according to their own will, independently of God, and then postulates billions of human beings each having their own will and domain independent of God. By the time we enter all of these into the equation, we find that God is largely shouldered out of His own universe.

    Worse yet, all of these independent gods in the spirit and in the world have no problem using force and coercion to impose their wills upon others in the earth—yet the rules somehow forbid God to do the same. Who makes up these one-sided rules?”

    • JohnAZ May 22, 2021 at 11:36 am #

      Yeah, I hear you.

      I suggested that maybe what we call the rules of nature are the essence of God, and the fact that everything has an opposite, electron, proton, NS magnetic poles, good evil are essences of God’s makeup.

      What is good in some cultures are evil in others, eg. The Islamic mandatory conversion requirement, Jihad, is a direct violation of the ministry of Jesus.

      Who is right?

      Is good and evil learned or genetically built in? What explains serial murderers? PTSD? Why does the declaration of war by a bunch of political con artists allow murder to become legal?

      Jesus never even tried to explain the Kingdom or essence of God. It is beyond the understanding of Man, just like eternal life.

      Grrr , I wrote a wall of text on this subject , and don’t feel at the moment like writing it all over again.

      So I’ll go with the very short version ;

      I don’t necessarily see a problem at all.

      The question or problem of evil , the question or problem of free will , seems to be grounded in the assumption of finite creatures in a finite world with finite resources.

      But , it seems to me , if you assume eternal life , i.e . infinite beings in an infinite world with infinite resources ,

      these questions might very well be irrelevant.

      The problems non – existent.

      For example , and I have used this example before ,

      on 9th November , 1888 , this happened to some person named Mary Kelly ;

      https://allthatsinteresting.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/kelly-coprse.jpg

      Now let us hypothesize for a moment that the actual result of what happened in this scene is that Mary Kelly then entered a world of PERPETUAL AND INFINITE HAPPINESS AND JOY.

    Marjorie Taylor Greene

    “Comparing wearing masks to the abuse of the Holocaust is a not so subtle diminution of the horrors experienced by millions. It’s a grotesque idiocy mixed with a neurotic lack of self awareness. What do you expect from a truther, Q believer, and gaslighting conspiracy theorist?” said former Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-Va.), referencing conspiracy theories for which Greene has voiced support.

    https://thehill.com/homenews/house/554894-greene-under-fire-for-comparing-mask-policy-to-the-holocaust-a-neurotic-lack

    It looks like we finally have a topic for which crossing party lines against a fellow party member is a comlete no-brainer. Also, notice the podium of the pic of Greene in the article.

      I have respect for Marjorie Greene for sticking to her guns.

      I am wondering why she chose to equate wearing masks to the Holocaust. She has a great point, but she should know that’s a hot button subject. I think she would have had much better luck pointing out the violations of the Nuremburg Principles.

    For once, Whites accepted normally. An African, both Black and Brown, invasion of the Spanish city of Ceuta was beaten back by the Spanish army. This Spanish woman was filmed hugging one of the invaders. Why should she be allowed to return to Spain? Shouldn’t she stay with them and comfort more of them?

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/may/20/spanish-aid-volunteer-luna-reyes-abused-online-for-hugging-african-migrant

    Of course she was with the Red Cross and their mission is to help people. But hugging? And then being praised as being a Spanish Heroine for so doing? If anything, she’s an anti-Spanish heroine. People like this will be the death of Spain and Europe.

    Yeah, she was helping: Helping them to invade Spain and end her People, Nation, and Civilization. I understand that Doctors take an oath to help all. Fine. But there are other oaths and other values – like keeping Spain, Spanish. This must take precedence on Spanish soil.

    “Leftists have caused enough suffering in America. They ruin everything. It’s time to segregate the lunatics into designated socialist states & let the rest of us live in designated constitutional states. Let them enjoy high gas prices, massive tax hikes, mask/vaccine mandates/passports, sanctuary cities, decimated inner cities, trans happy hour, & gun free-zones.

            Yeah, she says she is now a non descript entity. I think it is a pure attention move. You can be anything if you are a they. So I bet anything she doesn’t change anything really. And that is the reason I think she didn’t say she was a boy. Because then she would have to really change her look and style. And this is all about just keeping her relevant and in the mood of the moment IMHO.

    “To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written, which no one knows except him who receives it.” Revelation 2:17.

    God loves His creation. Sin corrupted it, but now He has a plan to return it to its original state of perfection, and He will reward those who help Him carry out this plan.

    Sin was born because of Satan’s desire to set himself above God, and it destroyed the harmony of heaven. Now God needs sin to be completely eradicated from all of His creation, in such a way that there is no possibility of it happening again.

    So He created mankind with the express intention that they should rule over sin. (Genesis 4:7) His entire plan is that mankind should live a life where they hate and resist sin, and say yes to Him – to overcome. One who overcomes sin in their life is proving that God’s way is perfect, and is part of the work of abolishing sin for all eternity. Each one who does this will taste the rich rewards of living such a life. These promises apply to all who overcome.

    The hidden manna
    The hidden manna is something that you receive already in this life. It corresponds to your hidden life. Your hidden life is that place inside where no one knows what is going on except for you and God. It’s where you are tempted to impure thoughts, to pride, to lying, etc. It’s where you fight and overcome those temptations.

    The hidden manna is the help that you get when you pray for it in those times. It is the nourishment you receive, the power from on high. It is given to everyone who asks for it, everyone with a longing to be free from sin. The hidden manna gives vitality and life.

    The white stone and a new name
    At the time the book of Revelation was written, a white stone was equivalent with innocence. If you were to be tried for a crime, a white stone signified acquittal, and a black stone signified guilt. To receive a white stone means that you are free from condemnation. You have been tried and have been found worthy.

    The white stone is a symbol of whom you have become through your faithfulness and your determination to rule over sin. It is rock-hard faith and purity. Here on earth your faith is being tested – there in eternity it will have been proven; it’s withstood the testing. Written on this stone of flint-hard faith will be your new name.

    This name will reflect the battles that you have stood in, and sufferings that you have endured. It will illustrate who you’ve become because of your faithfulness and God’s grace. (2 Peter 1:4) You know the battles you had to endure to get there, and you will immediately identify with that name. It will be the ultimate symbol of victory and transformation.

    All of this is proof that your faithfulness is highly esteemed by God. This new name, that only He and you know, is the testimony of your spirit; it’s how God sees you. He doesn’t see what you were according to your human nature. He sees the new creation in you, the result of your faithfulness to Him and His commandments. (2 Corinthians 5:17) And that is what you will be for all eternity. No more battle to overcome sin, but a new creation to live in eternal purity!

    Yoho: Does your name feel wrong or superficial? That’s because it is. God will give you your real name, the one that fits you and that you deserve. Maybe you can share that with those whom you love or maybe it’s just between you and God. I assume in Heaven there will be no need for any secrets anymore.

          This is me, for forever
          One of the lost ones
          The one without a name
          Without an honest heart as compass

          This is me, for forever
          One without a name
          These lines the last endeavor
          To find the missing lifeline

          Oh, how I wish
          For soothing rain
          All I wish is to dream again

          My loving heart
          Lost in the dark
          For hope I’d give my everything
          My flower, withered between
          The pages two and three
          The once and forever bloom gone with my sins

          Walk the dark path
          Sleep with angels
          Call the past for help
          Touch me with your love

          And reveal to me my true name
          Oh, how I wish
          For soothing rain
          All I wish is to dream again

          My loving heart
          Lost in the dark
          For hope I’d give my everything
          Oh, how I wish
          For soothing rain
          Oh, how I wish to dream again

          Once and for all
          And all for once
          Nemo my name forevermore
          Nemo sailing home
          Nemo letting go

          Oh, how I wish
          For soothing rain
          All I wish is to dream again
          My loving heart
          Lost in the dark
          For hope I’d give my everything

          Oh, how I wish
          For soothing rain
          Oh, how I wish to dream again
          Once and for all
          And all for once

            I thought so too. Had you heard of her before? I wasn’t sure you’d like it – maybe too goth. I guess she left the group and they had other singers, but none with her magnetism.

          • O.G. Hawkins May 22, 2021 at 5:43 pm #

            I was not familar with her or the group yet see that that vid had, idk, 12mm views or something and another one by them had over 30mm views.

            You are correct, I generally stay clear of goth & metal and felt guilty building the TruVinyl database producing Sabbath, Ozzy, Iron Maiden, etc. As a rock n roll curator, I had no choice. As a Christian, I pray to God that He understands while I built my own, personal, corporate-quality 19-channel webcasting network.

            There have been a few Good Christian songs in Classic Rock.

            Jesus is Just All Right by The Doobie Brothers and All You Zombies by Philly’s The Hooters come to mind. Of course, the whole of Jesus Christ Superstar is a strong rock opera both musically and in its presentation of the Passion based upon the Gospels.

      And I think the tie in with “carbon lockdowns” is exactly what they wanted. But covid does seem to have allowed them to push that agenda up in time without people thinking about it much. I saw a video on youtube from Laura Ingraham’s show and it said something about the covid lockdowns being a test run for climate lockdowns but I didn’t watch. Laura basically made me angry before the election last year and then after the election omg. I really can’t deal with anyone on Fox anymore but I will still watch Tucker. But.

          It was actually that interview with Trump she did in the summer last year prior to the election. She came across as abrupt and she interrupted throughout the interview and often had a disrespectful tone. I personally think she was trying to demonstrate how she is a no nonsense, tough and “fair” journalist. But it was just a bad look all the way around and I just never got past it and every time she talks I hear that tone. And I think that helped Trump’s opposition and yet she says she is completely against them.

          • Yohannon May 23, 2021 at 7:41 pm #

            She’s direct and that often means abrasive. That’s her thing. She’s at her best when she says what others won’t. Was that the interview after Trump had said, “We need these people (the illegals) because the economy is so good?”. Where she told him that’s not what you campaigned on? Her greatest moment.

            He was never going to stop the invasion. He never took up the issue of legal immigration at all. So he wanted to just legalize the illegals – the George Bush idea.

        C’mon. CONTROL! The Democrats have no real ideas and issues to base their public control on so they make them up. Climate Control is deadly because it is global. The Liberal segment of our government want to give US autonomy to global powers because they hate what the US stands for.

        But the Dems are more deadly than that. They have pushed and pushed for total control of this country and subjugation to the global group. They have actually changed the demographics of the country, they have successfully browned America.

        Anti pollution efforts are good, especially particulate reduction. It is a proven health hazard. Fossil fuels should be reduced over the long term and alternatives introduced. Why? Not CO2, that is a crock, a Liberal excuse. It is needed because Peak oil is real and many of the alternatives take decades to put into place.

        That is one of the main problems I am having with our governments, all of them. They do not do anything. Except make excuses. Except make up busy work like investigations to justify their existence, which it doesn’t.

        I heard a good saying.

    ” If not religious, just ignore that part. ”

    If religious , then the most you can credibly , or sincerely ( ? ) claim is that it is anyone’s guess whether Hell exists or not.

    And if it does exist , whether the population is five zillion , or just five.

    If not religious , then it is rather unambiguous ; It’s eternal damnation for billions , and not a few of them were guilty of nothing more than slipping on a banana peel , or the crime of being two days old.

    Many if not most of the people into supplements are liberals – and have gotten the jab. This is a paradox of the ages, but I suppose not really. They’re worried and jump at anything that will help them live forever, such is their desperate credulity. Of course the more learned know enough to trust their own immune systems and aren’t just apathetic or reflexively against the Government (which isn’t a bad reflex these days).

    Looks like the new game of shooting stolen handguns into moving or otherwise occupied vehicles is spreading like wildfire. In the past day or two little girl shot and killed in Minneapolis (where the city council still wants to disband the PD) 6 to boy shot on the way to school in LA, 7 yo boy in NC, 4 yo girl in Chicago. It’s not clear if these gangstas are targeting little ones, or little ones are getting in the way. Can it all be coincidental? Maybe it’s a way to gain some street cred, and show what a tough guy you are. “Look at me, I can shoot down a little kid and not feel any remorse. That’s what a hard case I am.”

        Some folks don’t need direction – they are naturals. Give them the ingredients and they will whip up a batch of hot steaming mayhem without even trying:

          Well, that’s unfortunate…

          The link is to the YouTube video of West African soldiers giving an AK-47 to a chimp. (Fast and Furious 2.0?)

      The gangs are simply just filling the power vacuum in the urban areas, as law enforcement retreats.

      There will always be some power or some kind of organization in control. So, if it isn’t state power then it will be a gang, or a militia, or a warlord, or one armed group or other.

        The shooting of kids indicates that this is some evil people. Even local gangs don’t usually kill their neighbors for yuks. But who knows.

    Barnhardt

    Let’s begin with a definition.

    This is the definition of “fundamental”:

    Adjective form: forming a necessary base or core; of central importance; affecting or relating to the essential nature of something or the crucial point about an issue; so basic as to be hard to alter, resolve, or overcome.

    Noun form: a central or primary rule or principle on which something is based.

    The root is the Latin “fundare”, meaning “to found”.

    I was thinking about mathematics this morning, and found it very, very interesting that mathematicians, physicists and engineers that believe:

    in the commutative properties of addition and multiplication
    in the associative properties of addition and multiplication
    in the distributive properties of addition over multiplication
    that the reciprocal of a non-zero number x is 1/x
    that the additive inverse of x is (-x)
    that the additive identity is 0
    that the multiplicative identity is 1
    …are never called “fundamentalists.”

    No one ever accuses an engineer of excessive rigidity or of a “fortress mentality” for his unswerving and intransigent belief in the fundamental properties of algebra. No one deems an engineer deeply flawed as a human being if he refuses to entertain the notion that the additive inverse of x might NOT be (-x), much less tolerate a plan for a building put before him in which the plans operate on the premise that the reciprocal of 2 is ¼.

    The heresy of Modernism has been well defined as “to not believe what one believes”. Only in the irrational, self-contradicting philosophical matrix of Modernism does believing in the fundamentals of one’s professed belief system make a person either stupid, crazy or evil.

    Sadly, in today’s Church, thoroughly infiltrated by Modernism, it is simply incomprehensible that a Catholic not only should, but MUST believe the fundamentals of the Catholic faith with more certainty and less doubt than the fundamental properties of algebra. The supreme truth in the universe is Catholicism, not mathematics. After all, five loaves and two fishes went into baskets, and hundreds, if not thousands of loaves and fishes came out. The multiplicative identity did not hold.

    Anyone who actually believes anything is, with regards to that belief, a fundamentalist. To be a fundamentalist is nothing less than to believe what you believe. It is a truly, truly deranged and depraved mind that can hold as not just tenable, but admirable and virtuous that he does not actually believe what he believes.
    What the hurling the word “fundamentalist” as a pejorative at Catholics but not mathematicians, physicists and engineers proves is that the hurler fully and completely assents to and believes in mathematics and does not harbor any doubt. The facts of Divine Revelation to which the Church bears witness? Not so much.

    Therefore, I am a Catholic fundamentlist, and I cannot be gaslighted by anyone for being so.

    Yoho: a is a, as John Galt said. If that’s not true, you got nothing. If an apple isn’t an apple, you can’t add it to another apple to get two apples. Or if it is there and then not there, you can’t even add to another unnamed object and get two ambiguous objects.

      I venture to suggest your Barnhardt knows very little about Mathematics, Catholicism, or Modernism … if these are the best arguments they can muster.

      Lacking in the fundamentals, I’d say.

      • Yohannon May 23, 2021 at 12:43 pm #

        So a isn’t a? And there’s no reason why things are the way they are? So why should anyone listen to you either?
