Monster Mash-up

“My take is that the US is incredibly unstable right now, and could go in almost any imaginable direction between now and the election, as well as some unimaginable ones.” —John Michael Greer

     Did you notice that it took just a little bit of internal chaos to alert the Party of Chaos that maybe chaos wasn’t the greatest thing to be the party of? Something went awry the past two weeks when thousands of creamy coeds on every campus across America donned the keffiyeh and, in effect, demanded submission to history’s most notorious misogynist cult. It struck a most cacophonous chord among progressives, like Kumbaya as orchestrated by Karlheinz Stockhausen. To awaken from Wokery, you see, is a brutal shock to the brain.

     And so, over the weekend every big dog in the Democratic Party’s doghouse came out barking against the current direction of the Democratic Party — that is, over an electoral cliff, lemming-style. Bill Clinton lamented at the Milken Conference that “the political rewards of grievance politics and name-calling and being negative have been so immense that nobody could give’em up. That’s what this whole shebang has come down to now.”

     James Carville had a veritable nervous breakdown on X: “It’s going the wrong way, it’s not working. Everything we’re throwing is spaghetti at a wall, and none of it is sticking, me included.” Fareed Zakaria over on CNN confessed that “None of this is playing out the way I thought it would.” Gee, really?

     None of them could bring themselves to actually name the doddering donkey in the room, “Joe Biden.” Nor did they dare call out the stage manager behind the old Joe-from-Scranton show, Barack Obama, not exactly coasting into his fourth term, as expected. They’re all surprised the way things are turning out. And, of course, “JB” himself did not come out of his Rehoboth Beach hidey-hole after declaring no more bullets and missiles for you, Israel, which landed amongst the Party’s donor class like a tear-gas bomb.

     Hillary Clinton popped up on the Morning Joe show wearing royal purple to remind the audience that Donald Trump is another Hitler, threatening “the sanctity of the Constitution” and adding “maybe this will be our last election.” If she’s putting herself up as possible last-minute replacement for the ever more ghostly “Joe Biden,” she was not so crass as to say so. The party will have to come pleading to her on its knees, hoping she can once again muster the legions of indignant women to oppose the wicked Golden Golem of Greatness — who was, that very day, on display in a Manhattan courtroom having to endure the jibes of the paradigmatic wronged woman, porn-star Stormy Daniels.

     What else have they got, really? Gavin Newsom? If Mr. Trump is Hitler, then think of Mr. Newsom as Godzilla with hair gel. Imagine what he could do to the whole USA after trashing California, as he has managed to do. Sorry to tell you, but in an election contest between Hitler and Godzilla, Hitler would probably win. It’s a rock-paper-scissors deal. Any other ringers they might throw in? The only name that ever comes up is Illinois governor JB Pritzker, who actually looks a bit like King Kong, and has certainly done a Kong-job on Chicago. And, by the way, that’s where the Democrats’ convention will happen in August. Wouldn’t it be something to see King Kong versus Godzilla there?

     All of which is to say that something beyond desperation has set in amongst the Democrats, an emotion so dire that Elizabeth Kubler Ross couldn’t find a word for it on her transect of grief. They don’t know what to do at this point. They have only a few months to figure it out and there is more at stake than a mere turnover in administrative duties. The shadow of the gibbet looms in their nightmares. Their lawfare schtick was one thing, a kind of fun-and-games compared to what’s coming at them: the actual law, trials for more serious crimes than mere book-keeping errors and mis-pricing real estate valuations. Think: sedition, treason, bribery and tack on conspiracy to commit all the above.

     Meanwhile, Mr. Trump provided a further shock to the awakening Woke with a Saturday evening fan meetup down-the-shore in Wildwood, New Jersey. Somewhere between eighty to a hundred-thousand voters showed up in what is said to be among the bluest states in the country. Bruce Springsteen must have been weeping into his avocado toast over in Red Bank. Then, across the Sunday morning news digests there was talk about “a landslide win,” and even more amazed chatter about RINOs and Never-Trumpers returning to the folds of the Golden Golem’s heavenly garment, as though Mr. Trump had virtually Jeezified himself through a year of tribulation.

      Will the Democrats just go through the motions the next six months, awaiting execution? Naw. One way or another, they are going to jam Hillary into this psychodrama. Stay tuned for a couple of medical emergencies. First, Kamala Harris will resign on account of a sudden “health problem” that prevents her from attending to her duties. Cancer will be implied but not spelled out. “Joe Biden” will appoint HRC of the Purple Pantsuit as veep. Three weeks later, “JB” will submit his resignation for medical reasons, and nobody will need to ask why. Voila! The first woman president, she-whose-turn-has-finally-come, flies triumphantly out of the Democratic Convention in her hometown, Chicago, like Rodan the Flying Reptile emerging from the mythic volcano, cawing her battle-cry across the land. The Golden Golem answers with a roar. The great re-match is on!

      The Senate AND the House have to approve the new VP. Even Mike Johnson couldn’t vote for HER as VP. It would be an interesting flip, of course.

        Interesting conundrum. If congress cannot reach agreement on a new VP, then Johnson becomes president by default if POTUS resigns. Very interesting. The speaker is in the driver seat. So was the Senator from Naboo.

    Greetings,

    I do not see any of the above happening. No one that supports the Biden administration actually thinks he is in charge of anything. Talk to some hardcore Democrats and they will tell you precisely that. They believe that there is a Hall of Justice where woke Superfriends don their capes and meet to pull the strings and do such marvels as creating the greatest economy in US history.

    No one is bothering to pretend anymore.

    • Beryl of Oyl May 13, 2024 at 10:36 am #

          • Beryl of Oyl May 13, 2024 at 11:36 am #

            Now I remember. They had Ashley Biden trending on X; and the old news about her diary being real was being presented a if it just happened, and there were multiple posts claiming it proved that Joe showered with his teenage daughter (it doesn’t).

            It made me think why now, the free-for-all Joe bashing. That sort of thing is usually reserved for someone like Trump, on X.

            Gratuitous slams.

          • Paula D May 13, 2024 at 12:38 pm #

            Interesting.

    • Socrates-Detroit May 13, 2024 at 11:05 am #

      Interesting prediction about Hillary, it’s plausible.

      Over time, the US has been growing more and more fragile. The only bright spot was the uptick in crude oil production–which JHK says is a “blip” that is unsustainable. I think he’s right (because IMO, something too good to be true usually is).

      After that positive development, in the flood of red ink that was always growing higher and higher, we had three hits: COVID and the mRNA shots; Russia/Ukraine; and Palestine/Israel/Middle East.

      The smoldering conflict with Russia started by Clinton (expand NATO) and Bush (expand more), was ignited by Obama in the coup in Ukraine, the flames were fanned by Trump (“lethal” aid and large expulsions of Russian diplomats, thank you Donald), and then Biden decided to pour gasoline by green-lighting a renewed “Ukrainian govt offensive” in the Donbass, at which point Russia pre-emptively stepped in, Feb 2022.

      The US/West then attempted to embargo Russia and is actually in the process of STEALING Russian financial assets. This has unleashed WW3 economically, although the effects are slower to work their way to the US than Europe, this re-ordering of global trade relationships will be another hit to average Americans.

      And now, while JHK is unable to admit the obvious, the industrial grade slaughter of Palestinians has precipitated all these demonstrations that (we are told) are roiling the country.

      Perhaps some of the demonstrators are not sincere–they could be troublemakers, or people looking for some “excitement”, so they are joining the peace/cease-fire now demonstrators.

      The impetus for these demonstrations is pretty simple: it is wrong to bomb defenseless people and starve them, and our tax money and aid should not be enabling this.

      In any case, in the global scheme of things, while the Gazans are the big victims, the US unconditional support for Israel is eroding America financially (cost), and undermining America diplomatically in the Arab world and beyond, which will in the long-term also affect Americans adversely.

      COVID. Ukraine. Palestine.

      That’s THREE big hits in less than five years.

      They’ve all considerably increased the flood of red ink that will drown the US.

      If we are lucky, that is. If American foreign policy in general, and regarding Russia and the Middle East in particular–does not lead to hot WW3, with America itself coming under fire for the first time since the Confederates attacked Fort Sumter, and the Union attacked the South.

      I watched Jill Stein on podcast yesterday. youtube.com/watch?v=15MK_mHOR0Y I’m far from a Green, but her grasp of foreign policy is spot-on, like Ron Paul’s. She won’t win, but I may actually vote for here.

      As for the demonstrations and the chaos in general (and the blob wants CHAOS), if the election process had not been tainted, it’s plausible that we could something like 1968, when an unlikeable Trump beats an unpopular incumbent party with the help of a 3rd party (replace Wallace with RFK).

      • JohnAZ May 13, 2024 at 11:25 am #

        We are giving Ukraine, a lost cause, almost four times the aid that has been allocated to Israel.

        “It is wrong to bomb defenseless people”

        Since when? Iraq, Kuwait, Germany, Japan, Spain, England, Hawaii, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia to just name a few 20th century examples.

        It is war!!!! War is to be won, period. I split my sides when I hear people talking about respectable wars, war criminals, Geneva rules of war,.

        Wars are to be won, the victors write history, the losers die or are enslaved.

        • JohnAZ May 13, 2024 at 11:30 am #

          Add on the hi tech wars that are evolving, drones bombing ME lands being directed from Colorado Springs. Robot dogs being used as boots on the ground. Faster and faster missiles that will be impossible to defend against, Iron Dome descendants that will try to keep up.

          The Ukraine debacle has shown that WW2 or even Cold War tactics no longer work. The fear factor has of course filled up with Nukes, but the advance of chemical or biological warfare into the high tech delivery systems bothers me much more.

          • Breck May 13, 2024 at 12:23 pm #

        • sadlycdn May 13, 2024 at 11:38 am #

          Couldn’t agree more…..its all nonsense trying to stall and hamper the effort….

          • Beryl of Oyl May 13, 2024 at 12:01 pm #

            It looked from the beginning to me that TPTB wanted that area cleared out of those Muslims, and that they would just as soon have Israel take all the blame.

            The muslims are in the way where they are, but can be put to good use elsewhere.

            This is from Yahoo News.

            “Another demonstration by the Islamist organization Muslim Interaktiv in Hamburg will be allowed to proceed, less than two weeks after an earlier demonstration caused a national uproar in Germany.

            Hamburg’s police chief Falk Schnabel said on Wednesday that the group’s planned demonstration called for Saturday will be subject to strict conditions by authorities. Muslim Interaktiv is classified as an extremist group by the German authorities.

            Schnabel said that police intensively examined options for an outright ban on the group’s demonstration, and reviewed footage from the group’s previous demonstration on April 27.

            But authorities again could not find a solid basis for an outright ban on the demonstration, a conclusion that was also reached before the April 27 march, Schnabel said.

            The answer from experts was that “a ban will not be legally enforceable,” he said.

            However, as in April, authorities have warned the group that incitement to violence or comments denying Israel’s right to exist would not be tolerated.

            As an additional condition, calls for establishing a caliphate on German soil will also not be permitted.

            At the first rally at the end of April, which was organized by Muslim Interaktiv, around 1,000 demonstrators denounced what they saw as Islamophobic politics and media coverage in Germany.

            Some protesters also called for establishing a caliphate as a solution to social problems, something that sparked nationwide outrage in Germany and denunciations from leading politicians.”

            You can be fined in Germany for saying anything against the ‘migrants’.

          • Jarek May 13, 2024 at 1:53 pm #

            Since you can’t say anything against the migrants, and they keep coming, the Caliphate is coming in any case.

            Whites can’t stop from cancelling themselves. They think it’s the moral thing to do….

          • Socrates-Detroit May 13, 2024 at 2:27 pm #

            @Beryl. It is plausible that, as you say, the “PTB” are using Israel to clear out the “Muslims”. But, while at this time, the vast majority of Palestinians are Muslims, it’s not just Muslims.

            The Israeli government harasses various Christian churches and communities who have been in the Holy Land for a long time, including Armenians, Greeks, and Catholics.

            The PTB want division and chaos. Everywhere. All the time. Chaos distracts and angers people, and makes them easier to manipulate.

        • Jarek May 13, 2024 at 12:15 pm #

          Yes, the 20th century was a repudiation of the ideals of Western Civilization anent war. And this abject savagery for another people? Or do you admit that they are in fact our rulers? Unelected rulers who cannot be appealed to since they won’t admit to being so.

        • HappyMotorist May 13, 2024 at 2:58 pm #

    But, what about the part where Soros and all the usual suspects are funding the anti-Israel protests while at the time ruefully bemoaning all the rampant “anti-Semitism” in the US? There are no organic protests, just paid activists joined by silly women and effeminate men who are all in on: “I’m for the current thing.”

    • rudyspeaks May 13, 2024 at 10:15 am #

      The CN Peanut gallery! “Effeminate men”, in on “the current thing”…so nice to have someone solve this mystery of why people would object to GENOCIDE. I mean, what other explanation is there?

      • Beryl of Oyl May 13, 2024 at 10:41 am #

        People would object to genocide, but in the article I tried to post a couple of times on Friday even Caitlyn Johnstone acknowledges that the campus kids are in it to be cool. She sees it as a good thing as it gives the movement energy or something.

        They really did get brainwashed on their phones. The people doing the brainwashing have stated this.

        That’s a major reason we are seeing the ban on Tik Tok, though I doubt it’s the only reason.

        AIPAC objects to the brainwashing.

        • DrTomSchmidt May 13, 2024 at 11:02 am #

          Ban on TikTok is because it’s NOT a social media platform controlled by the Deep State. As Boss Tweed complained about Nast’s editorial cartoons undermining HIS control of the media, so the Deep State and AIPAC object to all the videos of rubble and children’s bodies being pulled out. It’s why young Chinese, in my experience, hate Israel.

          I do hope Israel wipes out Hamas, and fast. As 60 minutes pointed out last night, they are losing the media war. A bankrupt USA won’t do much as an ally for them if we are the only one.

          • Socrates-Detroit May 13, 2024 at 11:24 am #

            As other here have said (including OG), Israel helped create Hamas, in order to “divide the Palestinians”, so the Israelis could abuse them.

            As long as the Israelis deny the Palestinians basic human rights, Hamas (or some OTHER similar group, or groups) will continue.

            Israel has killed so many Palestinians and destroyed so much that the Israelis have created an abundant pool of Hamas volunteers among the survivors.

            I’m sorry that Israel is “losing the media war”.

            Perhaps it would help “the media war” if Tel-Aviv looked like Gaza.

          I do not believe any of these students who have worked so hard to graduate would throw it all away (plus the possibility of being cancelled from high-paying jobs) for a cause greater than themselves.

          They are not giving up and not going away. They are the conscience of the nation trying to pull the rest of us from our stupor.

          • RD3 May 13, 2024 at 12:10 pm #

            Haha. They went from preaching the Covid gospel of distancing, masking, and vaxxxxxxxxxing, to screaming to lock up the “insurrectionists” to picking up the Ukrainian flag. They just set down the Ukrainian flag to pick up the Hamas mantle. And next month, they’ll be on to something else. Do you know what that something will be? Whatever social media and sheep herders tell them to care about.

          • Jarek May 13, 2024 at 12:22 pm #

            The sillies are doing our work for us. We are too busy working or watching TV to get out there and protest Israel and its control over so much of our nation.

            And let’s face it, they wouldn’t be so gentle with us. So it’s good that alot of their own kids are out there doing this. That in no way negates their absurdities. The contradiction is built into our system and they are acting out the script.

            The Republicans want to sic the National Guard on them. Mike Johnson who supported BLM and George Floyd, wants this too. Why? What has changed? You know. The antagonist isn’t Whites this time, but Jews. You have to hold onto the big picture: This is the most important movement in our lifetime, forcing a conversation that has to be had.

        Yeah, we should just let the Israelis kill as many Palestinians as they wish, because that’s what the US did in Iraq.

        Where was their concern when over 1200 were slaughtered by the Palestinians, with the most heinous and horrible of tortures. But what can you expect when every Palestinian, and muslim, is taught to hate Jews as infants and to kill them were ever they are found, like behind bushes, which the Quran teaches. There have been too many offers of peace put to Hamas and the Palestinians that were flatly refused. So, what can the tiny Jewish state do to mollify their enemies or calm the waters? The war against the Jewish state and Jews is eternal and never to end without the genocide of every Jewish citizen of Israel. So, they either fight to destroy Hamas or die by destruction of Israel. What a choice!

        • Socrates-Detroit May 13, 2024 at 1:14 pm #

          Most everything you wrote can be reversed.

          The Israeli government and media consistently dehumanize Palestinians.

          Israelis (soldiers, police, settlers) routinely kill Palestinians for now reason.

          Israelis can arrest and imprison Palestinians without charge. Israeli whistleblowers have said torturing Palestinians is accepted practice.

          The Israelis consistently have moved the goal posts and have never been interested in peace.

          That’s not just me saying: that’s coming from Israeli Jews with impeccable credentials, like Gideon Levy and Miko Peled. They were even in the Israeli Army! They are professional writers/reporters.

          As to your “1200 victims”

          Many sources, including Max Blumenthal, have noted that over 600 of those Hamas killed were uniformed Israeli soldiers or police.

          As Israel occupies the West Bank and Gaza, an occupying power’s soldiers are legitimate targets.

          This whole “eternal war against Jews” is very old and tiresome. The whole “victimhood” thing, where, for the past eight decades, certainly since 1967, Israelis are the victimIZERS.

          There are virtually no Christians, Armenian or otherwise left in Turkey; Christians have been persecuted for centuries, from Rome to Communism to the present day, where Christians are harassed in Israel.

          That’s right. You don’t read about that–but in “democratic Israel”, that’s how it goes.

          Israel is going to drag the US down to obscurity. I hope you’re in the US and I hope you live to see it. And once the parasite kills the host, then we will see how Israel fares in the world at large.

            Hey Socrates, and others like-minded who talk about “genocide” –

            This is what genocide looks like: troops go door to door to force a whole population to camps, death marches. Armenians, Jews, and original peoples of the Americas, among others, suffered it at different times.

            Israel is not pursuing genocide but survival. True, many civilians have been killed. They would not have, if savages in green bandannas hadn’t had a day of fury in Israel’s sovereign land, burnin’ and shootin’ and rapin’ – and they wouldn’t have if the troglodytes in bandannas hadn’t hidden amongst them instead of facing the angry Jew army kicking the door.

          • Socrates-Detroit May 13, 2024 at 9:07 pm #

            @Rulo

            The Na-zi and Turkish governments did not have to worry about public opinion.

            Israel does not have the luxury, and it cannot totally disregard it.

            Based on the actual destruction we have seen so far, as well as numerous statements by Israeli government officials (such as one minister who LITERALLY suggested nuking Gaza), I’m pretty sure the Israelis would simply carpet bomb the place, and order soldiers to shoot any survivors afterward.

            And then, they’d bulldoze, and get Americans like the Adelson family or Jared Kushner (Trump’s son-in-law) to build hotel casinos at the beach. The Israelis would also get the rights to whatever oil and gas is off of Gaza’s shore.

            As to the “troglodytes in bandanas”, what is the difference between them and Israeli soldiers, police who can detain Palestinians without cause, and imprison them, who torture them, and even kill them with impunity?

            I don’t see any difference.

          • Rulo Deschamps May 13, 2024 at 9:52 pm #

            Socrates,

            “I’m pretty sure the Israelis would simply carpet bomb the place, and order soldiers to shoot any survivors afterward.
            And then, they’d bulldoze…” etc.

            You can be pretty sure all you want, yet you’re dealing in hypotheticals. You also contradict yourself. If Israel, unlike the reich or Turkey, is under the gaze of an omnipresent media, then why would they “simply carpet bomb the place”?

            Look at the real issues here: overpopulation and resource depletion. Plus, of course, ancient hatreds. But hatreds can be overcome, it has happened sometimes. The Arabs had many opportunities over the years to be good neighbors. Many are Israeli citizens. When Gaza was returned to them, it was returned with agricultural infrastructure intact, greenhouses, packing houses. Hamas destroyed it. There was the potential of a good living there for the masses, a start, a source of work and pride.

            The troglodytes are not the same as civilized soldiers, who can be ferocious and ruthless but don’t cross certain limits. If those greenhouses had been put to use, and more added, and other industries, and a trade deal w Israel and Europe, all that poor, young cannon fodder that the leaders sacrifice would own scooters, be able to afford a flat to live with their women, instead of sitting on the corpse of a dead, half naked young woman in the back of a pickup truck, bringing her as meat to be paraded.

            Troglodytes is right.

            @Rulo

            My apologies for my less than clear comment.

            I meant to write “If Israel had the luxury of being able to COMPLETELY disregard public opinion (as was the case in Germany and Turkey), then I am pretty sure that Israel would carpet bomb the place and have the soldiers shoot any survivors.

            I was implied. However, I have spelled it out for you and CFN.

            You are correct, that is a “hypothetical”.

            It’s a hypothetical based on the Israeli government’s current actions, statements by current Israeli officials, and the Israeli track record in general.

            Israel cannot COMPLETELY disregard public and global opinion. Up to now it has largely disregarded it, since the US has covered and helped Israel.

            However, Israel cannot suppress the images, or the actual testimonials from Westerners whose WESTERN relatives or friends have been killed.

            The Germans and Turks did not have these concerns.

    • dilbert113 May 13, 2024 at 10:53 am #

      Exactly. What is going on, at college campuses, is a conflict between anti-Israel Jews and pro-Israel Jews. It is causing great inconvenience to non-Jews, unfortunately. The parties involved need to take their conflict elsewhere so serious people can focus on their studies. The very idea that an internal conflict within the Jewish community is somehow “antisemitism” is laughable.

      The key to this election may totally depend on how successful the Dems are creating phony immigrant ballots. They seem too arrogantly confident to me. It may be a product of the complacency of the MAGA side patrolling the authenticity of the ballots going into the counters.

    • DrTomSchmidt May 13, 2024 at 11:07 am #

      The steal was: electronic vote counters showed votes for Biden in sudden middle night surges. When the actual paper ballots were counted, there were about the right amount of paper ballots to back the machines.

      The results in non-battleground states showed a gain for Trump over 2016: see, for example, NY. Most of the paper ballots were from real but non-voting people, which means they had to aggregate all the votes, find out who didn’t vote, and get their votes in place.

      So, they DO have to worry about losing. It was a cheat but an honest cheat last time. If Trump had won a majority of ALL voters, including those who didn’t vote, they could not have pulled it off.

      • MiTurn May 13, 2024 at 3:11 pm #

        DTS,

        That is sort of my fear. I can imagine that in the days going up to the election all polls show Trump far out in the lead. Even CNN and NPR will be predicting a Trump victory.

        But low and behold, another “sudden middle night surge” and the Dems “win” again. This will such an obvious steal that something will have to be done. I think that most Americans will be up in arms, like firearms.

        That would be an interesting scenario.

      • ezinmn May 13, 2024 at 4:09 pm #

        The swing states all stopped counting for several days, while the Blob backfilled fake paper ballots to meet the need. Something like 5 states won it for the cheaters by around 45,000 total votes.

Such as, closing down all of the military bases through out the world, slash defense spending, re-tool social security and medicare to make it solvent again, cut Federal spending and balance the Federal budget, give us a sound monetary system by abolishing the Fed. Those are just a few.

      • JohnAZ May 13, 2024 at 11:54 am #

        CankerPuss

        You are dreaming. You are espousing the bullshit of the Right.

        Slash defense spending? With the MIC being the core of the Deep State? With defense spending being the only non-crime manufacturing in the USA?

        Re-tool SSA and Medicare? I assume you mean the Trust Fund to cover payments? The non-extant bankrupt empty trust fund? Reality is that the government is just spinning the presses to pay out those payments. Impossible to fix something that really does not exist in the first place.

        Cut federal spending? Sorry, impossible, the country would collapse without paying the Debt interest. To pay it, other services are starting to suffer. It just went above 1 trillion annually. The Dems, who have not a clue about what money is, believe that they need to keep spending more and more to keep the economy growing. Read TLE for a really good idea of what is going to happen eventually. It has already started.

        Balance the Federal budget?

        Hahahahahahaha! You will never see it. The future of the Deep State depends on its spending enough on the people to keep their voting in line. BTW, the Clinton claim of a balanced budget was hogwash, so many numbers were manipulated to show that and it only lasted a couple of years. Bush destroyed what did exist with tax cuts.

        Abolish the Fed? Shut down the entire printing press mechanism? Also, do you enjoy living with high inflation? The Fed is the ONLY thing holding the Deep State’s feet to the fire right now.

        Your suggestion are all needed to save the economy, even the global edition. The problem is to save the economy, you must destroy the old one and create a new one.

        The Great Depression would be a mere bagatelle.

        JHK made an annual prediction that DemGOP, BidenTrump, would not make a difference, that events are running open loop now and no one or even the entire government cannot stop what is coming.

        Fourth Turning anyone?

        • Cankerpuss May 13, 2024 at 12:04 pm #

          Yes, JohnAZ, I am dreaming. I consider myself to be a fairly simple minded American. I live a simple life. I refused to buy a massive home and still reside in the same starter home I bought 20 years ago and as such easily paid off my debts, pay minimal property taxes (as compared to most with their mini mansions) and can easily afford to heat, cool and maintain my property. Life doesn’t need to be complicated but the choices we make complicate if for ourselves.

          I see no reason why government shouldn’t be the same. The solutions to what ail us are not complicated.

          1. Want to stop illegal immigration? Bring the US troops home and put them on the border. Shoot and kill any who try to cross. Sure, a few may die but the message will soon be had by all to stay away from the border.
          2. Want to stop inflation? Stop printing money. Inflation is a monetary phenomenon that comes from the Federal Government printing too much money to compete for too few products. States don’t print money. Cities don’t print money. Counties don’t print money. Citizens and businesses don’t print money. Only the Federal Government prints money and they are the sole cause of inflation.
          3. Balance the budget. Don’t spend more than what is coming in. How do you do that? Stop spending.
          4. Want secure elections? Go back to paper ballots and in person voting.

          I could go on but you probably get the idea. The solutions may be painful as you eluded to in your post. Painful to those addicted to the government teat but they aren’t difficult. If we as a society were serious about fixing things the solutions would be quite simple.

          Yes, I am a dreamer because I know, as you pointed out, that these simple solutions will NEVER happen.

          Sometimes the old order needs to come down to purge the filth and corruption and to rebuild a new order. I believe we have come to that point. We can’t fix what ails us, JohnAZ. We have to purge it. And purging requires removing everything and start over. The solution….as I mentioned…..is not complicated but it will be painful. Painful for a lot of people.

          So what is wrong with being a dreamer?

            The collapse and failure of the car culture in the USA will creat great pain – and for a lot of people. It won’t be as much psychological pain or sadness – much physical pain will also be involved.
            The average person in the USA cannot even comphrehend a life without automobiles, let alone start taking steps to work around not having one.

            In third world countries most people get about without autos by walking or using bicycles, motorbikes, and even beasts of burden. Roads in third world countries are in such poor condition that cars aren’t that practical anyway. Pain will arrive in being exposed to the elements. Pain will arrive via sore muscles. In a world made by hand your feet will be a large part of getting from point A to point B. Life has always been painful. The best way to avoid pain is to have not been born to start with.

            Or could it be that humanity is deliberately creating an impossible situation in hopes of forcing “God” or “heavenly forces” to appear and save poor suffering humanity at the last moment. We are crying here in our little sandbox, throwing sand in each other’s eyes and some of the other kids set a pile of trash on fire in the back yard somehow. There’s no adult management and we’re all just begging for one of our parents to show up.

            We’re hoping it’s gonna be mommy God who shows up to kiss it and make it better. But what if daddy God shows up, he’s drunk and angry to start with, and he has a leather belt in his hand?

            What if these “heavenly forces” turn out to be really angry about being ordered off course to come over here to deal with our shit? And they decide to teach us some lessons we won’t soon fergit?

            Like Iscariot’s attempt to manipulate Jesus into calling “ten thousand angels to destroy the world [ system ] and set us free” it will fail and the outcome will be quite traumatic for futurists.

            “Now someone told David, saying, “Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom.” And David said, “O LORD, I pray, make the counsel of Ahithophel foolishness.”

            This is a Hebrew play on words. Ahithophel’s name means “my brother is foolish.” His name is prophetic of Judas’ attitude toward Jesus, his “brother.”

            Judas disagreed with Jesus’ refusal to use violence to take His rightful place as King. It has long been believed that Judas betrayed Jesus in order to attempt to force Him into using violence to take the Kingdom by force, rather than by winning the hearts of the people by love.

            I have no doubt that Albert Pike understood the necessity of bringing the final war to the Middle East in the attempt to manipulate Bible prophecy for his own purposes. In his pride he thought that he could manipulate God. God laughs at Pike.

            The divine plan also called for World War 1, because it was necessary to take Jerusalem from the Ottoman Empire (now Turkey) in 1917. This was 2,520 years after Babylon had taken Jerusalem in 604 B.C. The long “seven times” of prophetic judgment was fulfilled upon Jerusalem, and so in 1917 a new page of history unfolded.

            The real purpose of WWII was to create the conditions necessary to establish the Israeli state in 1948. This too was part of the divine plan, because Jesus had prophesied in terms of the “fig tree.” Jesus had cursed the leafy but fruitless fig tree saying, “Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever.” A few days later, Jesus told his disciples that in the time of the end, the fig tree would again come to life and bear more leaves.

            He did NOT say the fig tree would bear FRUIT. Fig leaves have been the problem since the time of Adam and a false justification for sin that cannot bring forth the fruit of the Spirit that God requires.

            The Israeli state is the prophesied fig tree that was to bring forth more leaves, but no fruit. Albert Pike’s plan to establish the Israeli state fit into the divine plan, so God laughed again at Mr. Pike.

            As for World War III, it is God’s intention to bring about a final destruction of Jerusalem for the same reasons as the city was destroyed by Babylon in the days of Jeremiah and again in 70 A.D. by Rome.

            The fruitless tree must be cut down, this time to the root and all. Jesus confirmed this in Luke 13:6-9, after doing a three-year investigation which was called a “visitation” (Luke 19:44).

          Read “The Great Taking” by Webb, which can be downloaded on the internet for free and actually read online in about 2 hours. Everything is happening by design, including the destruction of our once great country. The Fed is totally controlled by the big banks, who established it along with the ruse that it was part of the federal government, which it never has been. They are hardly holding anyone’s feet to the fire other than the average American citizen, as their main job and focus is protection of the “too big to fail” banks. Incidentally, I was also a citizen of Arizona in 2020 and watched in disbelief as they Hobbs and crew stole the election for Governor, attorney general, and others with their midnight ballet stuffing, breakdown of voting machines in Republican districts, etc.

        Cankerpuss, I’m left with no choice. I’m going to vote for the only candidate who says he intends to do all the things you listed, except for ending the Fed – which I think is necessary.

        Think about the economic impact of closing down all of our 800 military bases on foreign soil. Social Security and Medicare would be solvent, the budget would be balanced, the military industrial complex would be apoplectic but defunded…huge side benefits would be derived, too. No more 20 year olds coming home wearing one boot or no boots, mommies and daddies working productive civilians jobs instead of marching off to war leaving their kids to wonder – as I did – if daddy was ever coming back.

        Trump’s deep state handlers would never permit those sort of changes because those changes are..scream it with me now: LIBBURL!

        We can’t have that.

        • Cankerpuss May 13, 2024 at 3:32 pm #

          As a nation our leaders have spent our strength and our means warmongering in foreign lands for more than 100 years and I am not just talking about all the wars the USA has engaged in. I’m talking about coupes and overthrows and drug wars and so much more.

          Again, I am a dreamer and I like to dream of a President who would do exactly as you have said, C.O.Jones.

          I’m also a thinker and I grow tired of seeing our young men and women come home from shithole places like Afghanistan missing legs, arms, brain damaged or suffering from intense PTSD and unable to function. AN FOR WHAT?

          Absolutely fucking NOTHING. We laud our troops as heroes and some of them definitely are. But few there be that asked them just what in the hell they were fighting for in those countries. Do the troops even know?

          America’s wealth has been spent. It’s gone. Caput. Vanished. We are living on the fumes known as foney money. This can’t last and it won’t last. Once the government runs out of foney money or the ability to print over its debts a new order will fill in the void that is left. It’s coming. I has to. It cannot be avoided at this point.

          • ezinmn May 13, 2024 at 4:23 pm #

            For nothing CP? What about all the unused weapons sitting on the defense contractor shelves? And the kickbacks the industry sends back to their political supporters? Old soldiers don’t fade away anymore, they become lobbyists.

          • C.O.Jones May 14, 2024 at 9:49 am #

            I realize I’m asking for the willful suspension of disbelief but work with me on this and imagine a sitting president who leans into the camera and says:

            “If, as I’m proposing, we close all 800 US military bases now on foreign soil, we will save $x bazillion. That money will make social security and medicare solvent again. The endless war will finally be over and we will balance our national budget which will cause an economic recovery the likes of which have never been seen before.

            I’m calling on congress to pass this legislation immediately. I’m calling on the American voter to hold their senators and representatives responsible. Call them and urge them to pass this with the alternative being they are voted out of office. Email them and tell them very simply that they will be out of a job if they don’t pass this legislation. Do it now – tonight! To find the list of their phone numbers and email addresses, go to ____.”

            We know Biden will never do that. Do you suppose Trump has the brains to take a case to the American people? He had 4 years and never did.

            That leaves the candidate behind door # 3. The guy who holds the deep state responsible for murdering his father and his uncle. The guy with the cojones to take his case to the American people and make a difference instead of the same old crap we are sure to get with Triden or Bump. 6 of one, half dozen of the other = continued endless war and bankruptcy.

            Proposing to use the wealth of the United States to make its citizens more prosperous, instead of making its owners filthy rich, is what got his uncle and father killed.

            Our owners are better at propaganda now. If they can manage to get Americans totally onto ”The Next Thing”, and forget about the abuses of the covid years and the forced injections, they can shut him down without killing him.

            I see they have tried to kill the prime minister of Slovakia though, so the assassination days are not over.

            He had the nerve to be elected on a “no Slovak weapons to Ukraine” platform, so he had to go.

            The Empire doesn’t mess around.

    That is one hell of a frightening scenario you just threw at us, Jim.

    Unfortunately, I can see the possibility of it happening.

    • tuco22 May 13, 2024 at 10:38 am #

      The scenario I see is this: Biden gets in for a second term. Biden dies in office. Harris slides into the presidency for the remainder of the term, picking Pete Buttigieg as her VP. Even though he’s white, he checks the other boxes and has two half-black kids as bonus points. In the election, Buttigieg wins, becoming the first openly gay president of the United States, since Democrats love such pronouncements.

    It’s like a person trying to dance, but leave one foot in the same spot. Looking at the world thru an unchecked, never reconsidered Zionist orientation leaves one looking silly. I’ve seen lots of campus demonstrations (are they the ones JHK sees?). Their demand is an end to Israel’s Genocide against Palestinian civilians. Someone “demanded submission to history’s most notorious misogynist cult.”? Really? Not just a childish misrepresentation? Um…Citation? I’ve seen self-identified Jews and self-identified Gays BOTH point out that they are aware of Hamas’ attitudes, but, as is often the case with true adults, don’t consider that as important as stopping a vicious premeditated slaughter. Trying to confuse these 2 very different goals is dishonest. And, of no use.

    • JohnAZ May 13, 2024 at 10:15 am #

      No, their demand is “Death to America” and Genocide to Israel.

Menendez is next, Biden himself may be on deck with his garage full of the same sort of documents that Trump is facing trial with.

      Can the Left pull it off, nailing Trump while keeping their noses clean? My comment is that the Mob has been doing this illegal shit for a hundred years or more, they are masters at it. So good that they can fool most of the people all of the time.

    “My take is that the US is incredibly unstable right now, and could go in almost any imaginable direction between now and the election, as well as some unimaginable ones.”

    That’s what has been keeping me awake the last few nights. That sense of not knowing.

    At least Sybil Ludington new what she needed to warn about.

    BTW, one of the things that was really bothering me was looking up more about something or other I brought up here on Friday, and seeing the extremely accelerated rate that they’ve been replacing or language and history with the Woke (communist) version.

    Right this very moment, as I was checking on the spelling of Sybil’s name, I noticed that she has been under attack from Smithstonian, and if that weren’t enough to confirm what’s going on, Wikipedia has called her famous ride “alleged”, which means it did happen.

    One of the things the alleged historian at Smithsonian used to discredit (cancel) Sybil is that in records from the time, he name is spelled in various ways.

    I once visited the Old Stone Fort in Schoharie with my mother and some visitors. I was noticing that you could see the family names spelled various ways on the artifacts.

    My mother told me that’s because at the time not all people could read or spell at all.

    My mother knew this, but some “expert” pretends not to know.

    So, oral history without ironclad proof in writing with every i dotted and every t crossed is unacceptable when it comes to white westerners, but we just take somebody’s word for it who owned what and who has a right to which patch of dirt when it comes to “indigenous peoples”?

      Beryl, I read Wikipedia’s account of Sybil.

      The current “hysterical” review by the Left is being done to try to destroy the Legend of the USA. Betsy Ross is on the List. My belief is even if as been exaggerated over the years, their was an occurrence that triggered most legends. Why can’t people just luxuriate in the legendary sagas and just enjoy the USA.

      Another Revolutionary War hero, Molly Stark, mother of 11 and wife of General John Stark. Her statue and even a highway (Rt 9) are in Southern Vermont.

      From the Wiki:
      Molly Stark gained historical notoriety due to her husband’s battle call of “There are your enemies, the Red Coats and the Tories. They are ours, or this night Molly Stark sleeps a widow!” before engaging with the British and Hessian army in the Battle of Bennington.

      Stark is also known for her success as a nurse to her husband’s troops during a smallpox epidemic and for opening their home as a hospital during the war. In late November 1778, she petitioned the New Hampshire Court “praying for leave to inoculate herself and family for the Small Pox,” but her request was denied by authorities who feared it could spread the disease.

    • Anthea May 15, 2024 at 12:53 pm #

      @ Beryl of Oyl:

      Other objections by Wikipedia as to the truth of the story are also pretty flimsy.

      Apparently, Sybil’s ride appears in a memoir of her father and an 1880 book published by a local historian. The gripe is that, “Lamb stated that her account relied on sources including letters, sermons, genealogical compilations, wills, and court records to document details. She cites no sources, nor provides documentation of the ride.” None of this proves anything either way. As for providing documentation of the ride, I’m not sure how one would document that a young woman went on a horseback ride in 1777.

      The overall impression is that the story circulated in the family, among Sybil’s descendants.

      It’s absurd to suggest that the absence of details (her route, her horse’s name, or whether she rode side-saddle) cast doubt on the story. And why should she mention the ride in justification for her claim to her husband’s pension? It would be irrelevant.

      The article also mentions that she could not prove she was married to her husband. Anyone who has done any geneological research can tell you that the maintenance of marriage records in former times was very sketchy. There were no government records of such matters, and if there was any record at all, it was a church record. In predominantly Catholic areas of the country, parish churches did a pretty good job of maintaining such records, but Protestant churches may have been less diligent. Records of this kind are often damaged or destroyed. (E.g., some medical records I was seeking on one of my kids had been destroyed by flooding within a few years.) The same is true of the records mentioned by Lamb, the local historian. It is probably no longer possible to obtain the records she mentioned.

      As for Sybil’s course, after riding 40 miles along dirt roads and deer trails, probably much of it through raw wilderness, she probably didn’t remember it herself.

      If Wikipedia had any integrity, it would present the story as best it is known, perhaps with a one-sentence disclaimer that it is not very well documented–as opposed to devoting the entire entry to trying to debunk the story.

      There are probably many, many historical incidents that are not very well documented. Do we know whether Paul Revere rode side-saddle? And I notice that the name of his horse is also unknown.

        I wonder? Just as Biden has decided NOT to refill the strategic oil reserve, is he deciding not to replace the “strategic weapons reserve”? It is just another way to tear down this country for the WEF.

        You mentioned Israel, how about maybe there are no more weapons for Ukraine?

        OG, your worries about the outlay for Israel may be unfounded.

        Are we finding that the Liberal drives over the past fifty years are security and financially aching up with us. Do you think the CCP and Taiwan are going to okay the transfer of all the weapons components to Raytheon or Lockheed Martin? Is the MIC bankrupt?

          ” Just as Biden has decided NOT to refill the strategic oil reserve, is he deciding not to replace the “strategic weapons reserve”?” ~ JohnAZ

          You can’t wage war if you don’t have weapons and supplies.

          Even if their stated objective is not achieved, their primary objective of setting US up for failure will be achieved to some degree,

          “Joe Biden” left the equipment in Afghanistan, drained the oil reserve, and now as you speculate, is perhaps depleting our military arsenal.

          The NWO doesn’t believe in war. So, take away the means for a future administration to wage war, and if defense is absolutely necessary, then perhaps Trump will have to rely on NATO.

          These draw downs will serve to damage the US economically.

          I look for “Joe Biden” to set US up for failure royally between now and the end of his term. That is their SMO, and the only success they can be assured of.

    “Their lawfare schtick was one thing, a kind of fun-and-games compared to what’s coming at them: the actual law, trials for more serious crimes than mere book-keeping errors and mis-pricing real estate valuations. Think: sedition, treason, bribery and tack on conspiracy to commit all the above.”

    I wish, Jim. But not going to happen for one reason and one reason only. There is nobody left to enforce the actual law.

    The last paragraph of your essay today I found quite interesting. A rematch of Trump and Hillary. I keep scratching my head and thinking that out of a country of 330 million people these two are the best we can come up with? Good Lord.

    Excellent write up today. I enjoyed reading it. But I no longer have any faith that the system will punish the corruption. I no longer have any faith that the American people will do anything to fix it either.

      I was thinking that very thing the other day, that someone needs to walk into the oval office and clap Joe Biden in handcuffs, but there isn’t any man in the country left to do it or do the other things that must be done to save the country from dissolution into another quasi-Marxist shithole country. Now it’s pretty much everyone for himself/herself and to hell with everyone else, including the kids. If fixing anything is going to cost them, the hoi polloi will simply choose to live with the tyranny and corruption.

        The country is owned by the Mob. What I mean is the Western Mob, a combination of crime families from many countries using the WEF model ( Sorry Beryl) to forward their progress. The world is becoming run by crime families, starting with the Black, Latino, Irish (Kennedy) and Italian Mobs. The Cartels are no longer just Mexican, they are international involving all of Latin and South America, China and the Deep State. All the Mobs here reach out all over the globe. Mob, Blob, Deep State, Uniparty, DC, they are all part of the same gigantic crime family.

        Think for a moment. The world has had much of its capability to manufacture put in the hands of people making change per hour, if AI isn’t taking away their jobs. look at the USA, laced with manufacturing, the Rust belt being a gigantic tool and die empire to feed Detroit and Henry Ford’s empire. It is all gone, replaced by McDonald and server jobs. It is so bad that the evil governments have had to put in living wages for these teenager and elderly jobs, rather than admit they were wrong.

        Crime provides much of the “GNP” for the world today. Getting high or laid is still a big part of the business of the world and getting bigger. As resources fail, it is going to get violent as the various gangs protect their turfs.

    Factually, the Democrats believe that they don’t need to replace BIden. They could run Kermit the Frog as their candidate, and when he loses badly, in a big, obvious manner, the government and the medial will simply tell people “Don’t believe your lying eyes, our guy won, and if you dispute this you’re and “election denier” and you’re going to jail.” Lies are treated as the gospel truth, and obvious truths are labeled as dangerous information. Come out and dispute the election, loudly, online, and expect your bank account to be frozen, and worse consequences.

      You may be right. Puff the Magic Dragon could run on the Dem ticket this year and 50+-2% of this country would vote for him.

      Jeffries said with a lot of arrogance that the Dems are running the country again as the RINOs in the House are enabling the Democratic agenda. He is right, enough GOP people have quit to narrow the GOP advantage to 2. RINOs are deserting the ship of state.

      The country is getting its just desserts.

    • Yirgach May 13, 2024 at 12:09 pm #

      I don’t know exactly when but hyperinflation will occur soon after the US Dollar is no longer the World Reserve Currency.

      And that’s scheduled to happen real soon now…

    • JohnAZ May 13, 2024 at 12:14 pm #

      You are paying 18% more today than 2021. 2022 locked in a Congress that will not allow Biden to spend more and more, for now anyway. We are still inflating at a 3-4% rate. That doubles costs every 20 years or so. If Biden wins the Congress this year, you will see your hyperinflation as tax and spend goes into high gear.

      The Dems do not under stand hyperinflation.

      • Yirgach May 13, 2024 at 1:11 pm #

        The interest on the debt takes over for the lack of spending on the “budget” and soon dwarfs the budget due to compounding of interest on interest. It’s more interest all the way down. and we haven’t even started to have to settle trade in other than the US Dollar. Wait until that switches to the Yuan or the Ruble or Gold…

    The blob has been promoting Gina Raimondo, Secretary of Commerce and former governor of the most “Democratic” state, Rhode Island. Firts there were some puff pieces when she went to China to straighten Xi out, then 60 Minutes gave her a 15 minute tongue bath. She’s a plucky little gal, fighting for American companies!
    Her real calling card is a background in Wall Street, and then her neat “reform” of the RI State pension system, whereby the retirees had their pensions frozen, and the resultant savings transfered into fees for nedge fund “investments”.
    I see her as the more likely candidate to step in after Kween Kamala in your scenario. Even the blob knows how much Hilary is hated.

    • Blackbird May 13, 2024 at 1:24 pm #

      • Ron Anselmo May 13, 2024 at 4:37 pm #

        Yes, Bird – JHK once said something like – rather than vote for a Democrat, he’d crawl over a mile of hot broken pavement – if HRC, add carpet tacks and broken glass. So repulsive is she.

        • Blackbird May 13, 2024 at 6:15 pm #

          And (in my opinion), Trump helped make this possible.

          As I’ve mentioned previously, I think Trump was a golem manufactured by the HRC campaign to scare voters over to her side. Just as Bernie Sanders played sheepdog on the other side of the fence.

          Even with those two allies, and a lot of last-minute vote switching – which I observed in Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin between 1 and 3 am on election night 2016 – she still couldn’t win!

          During the fake election of 2004, I was talking with my supervisor at the time about a sensible Democrat strategy – as opposed to the non-campaign that “Kerry” was obviously running. I said that if the Democrats were really serious about taking the White House, they would put up a Republican so repulsive to many voters that it would scare them into the clutches of the Democrats. Well, in 2016, the Democrats finally adopted my strategy – and haven’t paid me for the advice…

          Once Trump got in, Democrat friends started talking about how Dubya “wasn’t so bad”… Because of Trump’s perceived “pro-Russia” stance, these same Democrats became the rabid warmongers that now characterize the party. Trump’s apparent skepticism about the “Covid” scamdemic, led these TDS sufferers to flock to the clot shot (despite Trump taking credit for it – “He’s just trying to steal the credit from selfless public servants like Fauci!”) and to avoid safer alternatives – “Trump said to drink pool cleaner!”, “Trump said to take horse dewormers!”

          Never mind that these public figures have no agency of their own. They are just actors playing an assigned role, to enflame our passions, to get us to react emotionally, and to eschew rational thought.

          • Ron Anselmo May 14, 2024 at 2:38 pm #

            You’re right, Bird – they’re against anything conservative, simply on principle.

            Whatever it is, they are “anti”, simply a reactionary, opposing position, no matter the subject matter. We have to use their intellectual shortcomings – stupidity – to our advantage.

            in the City of St. Augustine Beach proper – a little lefty enclave in our otherwise very conservative area – I’m thinking about proposing a city ordinance that all women at the beach, wear modest clothing, covered from ankle to wrist to neckline.

            Next thing you know, they’ll all be up in arms, demanding a clothing-optional beach – opless at least, and thongs required. Just in time for summer!

    I had to commend on this:

    “Something went awry the past two weeks when thousands of creamy coeds on every campus across America donned the keffiyeh and, in effect, demanded submission to history’s most notorious misogynist cult.”

    Stop this! You must know this is not what is happening, that you are purposely misrepresenting what these protesters are doing.

    They’ve been taught all their lives that colonialism is wrong, and really, it is wrong. Israel is a newly created state that is mostly populated by Russian and European Jews, that’s who runs that country right this moment. They, are colonialists, obviously they are.

    The Palestinians are the indigenous people. They have been there for 100’s of years. They’ve lived with Jewish people in that area, MOSTLY without trouble, but there was some, I wouldn’t lie about that, however there was never an inquisition in the Middle East, nor was there a holocaust. Problems to be certain, but not like those.

    The Middle East for more than a thousand years has been a sanctuary for Jewish people when times got rough in Europe and what was to become Russia. Israel in the short time it’s existed has absolutely destroyed that. It will never be a safe haven again, at least not for a 1000 years. The Muslims will not forget.

    Don’t you realize this? Stop pretending that the protests are about love of Islam or Hamas, you know it isn’t. It’s against the murder of the indigenous people, who happen to be Muslim. It wouldn’t matter if they were Christian (some of them are), or atheists. That’s not the issue.

    This is a slow, deliberate attack on a people that’s been going on for 75 years all the while having the Russian and European Jewish colonizers claim THEY are the victims. They’re the victimizers.

    If we would just commit to talking honestly about this situation instead of engaging in hyperbole, misrepresenting each other’s position and sides, and reasoning – this could be ended. Palestinians HAVE peacefully protested, for years, our media doesn’t report on it. The West Bank did lay down their arms – Israel promised there would be peace when that happened, but what actually happened in a massive increases in settlement building and expansion. More than 200 Palestinians were killed in the West bank in 2023 before October 7th.

    You may not know this, but I do. If I try to post this on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube – either you will never see my comment. It will be shadowbanned, hidden, denounced, called abuse – but what I wrote is true.

    The whole purpose of the Internet is that if we can just talk to one another, we can find agreement. We don’t just have to argue endlessly for our entire lives, try to take advantage of one another, undermine people. Everything I wrote above you’ve had the power and ability to know yourself for 30 years. You won’t hear it on television “news”, because there is no news, at best they misinform you by lies through omission and at worst will simply outright lie to you.

    I wish this bloodshed would end. I wish the arguments would end. I’m getting too old for this crap.

      The bloodshed will cease, when one side wins totally destroying the other. Israel’s victory will stop the wars and Israel as the victor will dictate their future. All the caterwauling and what ifs will not change that.

      It took five years for the South to be subdued in CW1, but they were destroyed by Grant/Lincoln. Israel has finally realized they cannot buy off the Arabs and are going to eliminate the enemy this time. No ceasefires, (Sorry idiots), no compromises, remember what the USA used to say?

The Bildebergers. The Trilateral Commision. The WEF. Whether the above are tools of the Zionists, or (more likely) Zionists are tools of the above, it doesn’t really matter. They are evil, masquerading as “doing good for the world” while seeking to lord it over everyone (and trying to play God is a sin).

            These are the people running things, and there are people unknown to us, running THEM. They are Satan’s disciples in this world.

            The Devil tempted Christ in the desert with the Kingdoms of this world, which implies, at the time (and today), THIS world belongs to the Devil. Until Christ returns.

            In general, in life, in big organizations, if you look at who makes it to the top, they tend to be very smart, and amoral.

            They may go to church (or even a synagogue), may be prodigious sources for charity, faithful to their wife, but to get to the top, rest assured, they screwed some one, or several people over. If THEY had not, some one else would have.

            And once they get to top, the exhort the troops. or workers, to do the right thing, with the “right values”. That’s what I’ve seen in the big entities who have signed my paycheck–the military and corporate America.

            Sharp people who do the right thing, but don’t screw others over, never reach their full potential in large organizations (government, corporations).

            However, God determines how far he will let the Devil go.

            While I don’t know if it is an act of God, or not, in history, many “bad” nations or rulers have been taken down by other “bad” nations. Even the “good nations” tend to go bad. Look at Israel and Judah in the Old Testament.

            We all know how Na-zi Germany was BAD–from history books, newsreels, or from the survivors, and what they passed on to us (I have several, including my parents and grandmother).

            Yet who defeated the Germans? It took THREE big, BAD empires (two of them with popularly elected leaders), to take down the Germans by 1945. Without the USSR, or even the US, it would have taken longer, but quite likely, the Germans would have imploded. Nazi-ism was not sustainable.

            Let’s look at the countries that defeated Germany: the USSR. We know Stalin was not a nice man. Millions of Soviet people died, and many were banished to labor camps in Siberia.

            Great Britain: they ruled over much of the third world, using a combination of force and cleverness. The British had no problem slaughtering the natives if the natives did not comply–from Sudan to gassing Baghdad in the 1920s.

            United States: a nation that came into being with a poison pill called slavery (a REPRHENSIBLE PRACTICE or importing African slaves, which has resulted in some serious internal problems for the US up through and including the present day), and which used force to remove the native Americans.

            That doesn’t sound very Godly to me.

            USA. Baby! A country that killed millions of civilians in WW2. That before WW2, viciously subdued the Philippines (according to Mark Twain and others). A country that prolonged a colonial war in Vietnam, leading the deaths of about 1.5 million Vietnamese. A war that also led to many deaths in Laos and Cambodia.

            A country that, once the “evil empire” USSR imploded, proceeded to destroy or destabilize Iraq, Libya, and Syria, causing countless deaths and creating countless more refugees.

            I forgot Yugoslavia

            So, some body tell me, is that “God at work”?

            Or, is God fixing to empower some other bad actor to take America down? Perhaps like he “empowered” America to replace the British Empire in 1918

            It seems to me that America has a lot to atone for.

            In the 20th century, we saw 3 evil empires disappear–two with force (Germany and Japan); one imploded, the USSR.

            I think they have paid for their sins.

            We saw another decay–Britain. We saw another one “change”, Communist China, which grew out of a China which was exploited by the West–the British, and later others, even Germans and… Americans! (good hollywood movie, “The Sand Pebbles” with Steve McQueen, on TCM)

            But has America paid for the sins of the US government? The Indians? The African slaves? The nuked Japanese? The napalm and agent orange? Southeast Asia? Depleted uranium in Yugoslavia? The Middle East?

            And I haven’t even mentioned America’s role in Palestine, especially since 1967.

            Quite a few Americans, including a lot of “Christians” seem to think “we are special”, God has given us a pass.

            Is that because of commercialized vices like gambling (made Sheldon Adelson rich enough to buy the GOP!) and pornography? Infanticide?

            So, I think America has a lot to atone for. And the events of the past five years indicate, to me at least, we are going to pay sooner rather than later.

            That for every Israeli civilian killed in act of terrorism, I’d say 10 to 20 Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli authorities.

            That Israeli authorities can arbitrarily imprison and arrest Palestinians, without formal charges?

            That Netanyahu has legal issues, and that if he ceases to be Prime Minister, the Israeli justice system could punish him?

        • Cankerpuss May 13, 2024 at 3:48 pm #

          OG, I believe the idea that the Jews are “God’s Chosen People” is wrong in that it is mis-interpreted Bible lore. If one reads the Bible they will find that God covenanted with Abraham and God’s chosen people come through Abraham by way of his son Isaac and Jacob. Jacob had twelve sons who each became the heads of great tribes. Each tribe inherited a portion of the “promised land” or the land surrounding the Sea of Galillee and the Dead Sea. The Assyrians conquered and dispersed the northern 10 tribes about 650 B.C. These 10 tribes never returned to the promised land. In 500 B.C. the Babylonians conquered Judah, Benjamin and Levi and took them captive. They were permitted to return some hundred years later or so but what were they like upon their return? Pure blood Judah or Judah mingled with the blood of the Babylonians, Persians, etc?

          It should also be noted that the Jews of today are different from the Jews of 2000 years ago. The term “jew” originated as a description by the Romans to describe anyone from the province of Judea which history records at the time as being a cultural melting pot of many different cultures and races.

          If you believe in the Bible then you would need to understand that God’s Chosen People are not the Jews but the House of Israel consisting of all 12 tribes. That is Joseph, Ephraim, Manassah, Issachar, Levi, Dan, Gad, Naphtali, Zebulun, Judah and Benjamin and Asher. Only one tribe, Judah, claims to be part of the Jewish people. So what of the other 11 tribes?

          • Cankerpuss May 13, 2024 at 3:52 pm #

            There is a tribe of Ruben, though, Ruben lost the birthright and the birthright was then transferred to Joseph whose two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh headed the now divided tribe of Joseph to replace Ruben who’s tribe had waned to a status of unimportance.

            Esau converted to Judaism in 126 BC. By the time of Jesus’ ministry the members of the priesthood sent to inquire of him claimed to “have never been in bondage to any man.” The only way this could be true is that they were not members of any tribe that had been in Egypt.

            This is how people following Judaism could be fulfilling prophecies pertaining to Edom. Obadiah is brief.

          • messianicdruid May 13, 2024 at 7:26 pm #

            @ UncleAbraham, do you think Obadiah is conspiracy theory?

            “The deliverers [“saviors,” KJV] will ascend Mount Zion to judge the mountain of Esau, and the Kingdom will be the Lord’s.”

            The prophecy is given in Old Testament terms which must be interpreted through the eyes of New Testament revelation. The old Mount Zion in Jerusalem was identified with the earthly city that Paul called Hagar.

            The city under the Old Covenant was governed by Mount Sinai in Arabia (Galatians 4:25). We, however, no longer gather at Mount Zion but at Mount Sion, which is Mount Hermon—the place where Jesus was transfigured and where the voice of God pronounced Him to be “My beloved Son”.

            The government of God has shifted from the earthly Jerusalem to the heavenly city, the city which Abraham sought. The three disciples that accompanied Jesus up Mount Sion represented these “deliverers” who were to “judge the mountain of Esau.”

            Obadiah ends with the final outcome of the divine plan: “the Kingdom will be the Lord’s.” It implies that the Kingdom, prior to this outcome, was occupied and ruled by Esau and by others who failed to be proper stewards of the Kingdom.

          • Uncle Abraham May 13, 2024 at 10:03 pm #

            To Messianic Druid:

            Why a conspiracy theory?

            All of actual Scripture is perfectly true, harmonious, and spiritually understood.

            “In that day I will raise up the booth of David that is fallen and repair its breaches, and raise up its ruins and rebuild it as in the days of old, that they may possess the remnant of Edom and all the nations who are called by My Name,” declares the LORD Who does this” (Amo 9:11-12).

          • messianicdruid May 14, 2024 at 8:44 am #

            “Not here to defend Netanyahu from your nutty conspiracy theories.”

            Your entry @ 3:33 refers to the things OG, SD, & md as theories.

            Then you provide a scripture from Amos saying the same thing as Obadiah: that Edom will not prevail!

            Now, if we could correctly identify the actors, by letting the scriptures interpret themselves, we could learn.

            There are two fig trees of Judah. The tree bringing forth the evil figs, Jeremiah says, are those who refuse to submit to the judgment of God according to the law of tribulation. The tree bringing forth the good figs are those who submit to God’s judgment and [ in the prophet’s day ] go to Babylon.

            The mob preferred a military messiah to throw off the yoke of Rome that God had imposed upon them. Jesus came as a Prince of Peace, however, and those who accepted Him were of the good fig tree that brought forth good fruit.

            God then brought judgment upon the evil fig tree of Judah in 70-73 A.D. The Christians, however, escaped that judgment. God used the Jewish religious leaders of the evil fig tree to drive out most of the Christians by persecution described in Acts. In this way, the good figs from the good tree were sent abroad into a type of captivity, much like Daniel and others had gone into captivity in Jeremiah’s day.

            These Christians as a body formed what is called “the Church.” It was actually the good fig tree of Judah, whose Root was Christ (Rev. 22:16). To this tree were engrafted peoples of all nations, each producing its own good fruit, and each sustained by the life of Christ. Soon these other nations outnumbered the Judahites. But it was still a Judah fig tree.

            Hence, the Church never replaced Judah; it always WAS Judah. The only possible replacement that might have taken place was if the good fig tree replaced the evil fig tree in carrying the promise of the Kingdom.

            The Church in later centuries began to think of itself as having replaced the fig tree, for it forgot that the very trunk of this tree was Judah. This was how they developed “Replacement Theology.” But they were wrong. They replaced nothing.

            God considers the Church to be true Judah. This is what Paul tells us in Rom. 2:28, 29, where the apostle tells us who IS a Jew (Judean) and who is NOT a Jew (Judean). These are God’s definitions, even if the world thinks otherwise.

      This is so wrong that it is hard to know where to start. The muslims were created as a conquering force, and forcefully converted everyone they conquered, but the Jews resisted. That resistance brought the hatred of Jews found in the Quran, and the very virulent passages to hunt them down and kill them. Everywhere Islam went, the victims either submitted and adopted Islam, or were slain or lived as second class subjects, which muslims could do with as they chose. They were also taxed at a very high rate that was not applied to muslims, so in effect they supported the muslim rulers. These infidels also had to step aside for muslims, and like women, their voices did not count as much in legal matters. They allied with Germany in WWII mainly due to their shared inbred hatred of Jews. Their overarching goal is world rule by a Caliphate, sparing no one from their ideology.

          As far as I can tell what jgalt wrote up there is basic world history. A long time ago in the late 60’s I was enrolled in a liberal arts college wasting time, dodging the draft with a student deferment, and taking courses such as world history. I did remember how dismal the history of Islam seemed, it spread by constant warfare with one country after another being converted at swordpoint. But on the other hand Christianity and the power of the Roman Catholic Church was also spreading at sword point with entities such as the Holy Roman Empire coming about. The Jews have had a tough time of it navigating through so many centuries of stormy seas. They have had two other very powerful world religions both claiming Abrahamic descent contending with them.

          The Christian religion grew from being a small Jewish sect possibly influenced heavily by the Essenes – into a global religion that was influenced instead by “apostle” Paul’s teachings. Paul and James (brother of Jesus) didn’t get along. If Paul and Jesus had met in real life before the cruxifixion Paul would not have been able to convince Jesus that Jewish laws and customs didn’t need to be followed anymore. Jesus never preached anything like that in the synoptic gospels. Paul didn’t have any of synoptic gospels, at least he never refers to them. His letters were written before the gospels were written.

            You’ve got a big chicken/egg logical problem here. The Quran (written 609-632) was a conquering force, the Jews resisted that force, this caused hatred for the Jews to be written into the Quran?

        All documented in Islamic sources like the Quran and the Hadith, so one can’t be accused of citing a source prejudicial to their cause.

        Here’s an interesting verified quote that demonstrates a critical aspect of Islam’s tactical warfare, which is to use lies and deception for maximum leverage in attaining conquest over the “infidels.”

        Zuheir Mohsen, PLO executive committee member, as quoted in 1977: “The Palestinian people do not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism. Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity exists only for tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”

        Jews also resisted conversion to Christianity, and that resistance brought hatred towards them coming from Christians. Some “Christians” take their creed so seriously that they believe Jews could be responsible for people burning in hell forever. And that crazy belief next justified persecuting Jews in Europe. Jews have a really hard time of it even in the New Testament. “Apostle” Paul contended with the other Christian evangelists who unlike Paul, supported Jewish law and saw no need to break with their Jewish cultural heritage. Jesus saw no need to break any of the rules of Judaism and Jesus and Paul weren’t preaching the same things. They would have instead gotten into some fierce arguments.

Was God’s mistake in creating foreskins or was it His mistake in requiring circumcision? Ouch! Quite frankly, if I was an adult about to be circumcised I’d try and negotiate for some other form of pain not requiring permanent removal of flesh. Something like being branded with a hot iron.

          Not so. In the Book of Acts the apostles including Paul and Barnabas came together with the mind of the Lord and didn’t lay all the minutiae of the Mosaic Law on the nations. And that didn’t mean they were giving a pass to sin – they weren’t. Paul directly reflected the Spirit and Mind of God in Christ in his letters recorded as Holy Scripture.

            It’s not possible to know for sure what Jesus actually said because Jesus was apparently illiterate and could not write. If Jesus had written down his ideas in quality Greek – then the history of Christianity would not be burdened with constant arguing and even fighting about doctrines and interpretations. There were four major sects in the Israel at the time of Jesus. With John the Baptist appearing in the Gospels along with the rite of Baptism, we can assume that Jesus was being strongly influenced by one of those 4 sects – the Essenes. Very likely the Romans got involved somehow with Jesus as a popular figure and thought Jesus to have been a zealot instead of more like an Essene. Zealots caused real problems for Rome and the empire responded to the Zealot sects at times by using military force and public executions. The Essenes were a harmless group of more fundamentalist and purity minded Jewish males who practiced celibate lifestyles devoted to God and devoid of any riotous partying or good times that were happening in Jerusalem. The Essenes didn’t go about carrying daggers under their cloaks for the purpose of carrying out assasinations. They vanished after the destruction of the second temple.

            Neither do you. The earliest copies we have of John’s gospel don’t include the story of the woman taken in adultery and Jesus next writing something in the the sand. That story is a later addition.

            Jesus teaching in the temple? Not likely if he grew up in Nazareth which was such an insignificant and hole in the wall place that a few historians argued it was a mythical city until some archaeological evidence appeared proving it was real place 2 millenia ago. But it was not a place for literary people – Jesus was a construction worker – not a greek speaking bookworm. If Jesus was God he would have known from the very beginning all the chaos that would follow in the centuries to come via doctrinal disputes and incompatible interpretations. Jesus could have saved humanity endless heartache if he’d only written the New Testament himself. That he did not seems negligent and cruel to me. Of course, if JC was never literate than who among us will throw the first stone at him for not taking the time and trouble to learn Greek?

      Almost everything RWicks has stated here is false and the overall conclusion is exactly backwards. The colonialists were the Ottomans, Crusaders, Mamluks, Romans, Greeks, etc…. But what does that matter? The Jews have made a country where almost 20% of the citizens are Arabs and the Arabs have made their countries “Judenfrei.”

      And where do the Arabs prefer living? In Israel, not Syria or Egypt or Lebanon or Jordan or Iraq – all the countries attacking Israel over the decades since inception.

      The Jews never claimed to be victims in what was called “Palestine”: (when they were also “Palestinians”) or as Israelis repeatedly attacked by Muslim Arabs and now other Muslims from Iran. Wicks has apparently never read the Quran or been in Israel. Or if so, with eyes closed and hands over his ears.

        Uncle, I travelled to the Holy Land a decade or so ago and I personally spoke to Arabs working and living peacefully in Israel. Our tour guide was an Arab who was very much in favor of and preferred living in Israel.

        It is often forgotten that many Arabs live, work and thrive within the borders of Israel. They seemed to be getting along just fine with their Jewish neighbors.

        Just stating what I personally saw and witnessed when I was there.

        You must whip it
        When something’s going wrong
        You must whip it

        Now whip it
        Into shape
        Shape it up
        Get straight
        Go forward
        Move ahead
        Try to detect it
        It’s not too late
        To whip it
        Whip it good

    No mention today of where RFK Jr. fits in.

    Here’ the thing, and it is literally getting worse by the day. I was going to write something about RFK Jr. with allusions to Jay Gatsby, and I did a very quick search on the interwebs to confirm a couple of details.

    Just minutes ago, I did this search.

    I found an article, The World’s Most Misunderstood Novel, and it was from the BBC so I can’t say I didn’t know better, but I clicked on it, out of sheer curiosity.

    I had heard of a Gatsby miniseries in the works, but I didn’t pay attention, but now I find that Fitzgerald’s great-grandaughter is ashamed of his work, but doesn’t mind cashing in on it as she was or is to be a consulting producer as it has been her dream to create a woke inclusive version of her famous relative’s work.

    God help us. I can’t be around people like this.

    It’s nice to see someone – our host of all people – come around to my way of thinking on this year’s (s)election: the Hildebeast.

    I’ve been predicting, for over 3 years now, that the Dems would slide the ‘Beast into the Ho’s position, and then slide the Big Guy out of the way to make way for Our First Woman President! My expectation is that it would take place after the convention – which will be a show of “Unity” for the Party of Chaos.

    I also lean toward the imposition of martial law rather than risking an election. A (fake) election would take some sophisticated meddling to overcome what would likely be a (another…) Trump landslide.

    The war in the Ukraine will help grease the skids – in terms of “narrative” for the ‘Beast. “White nationalists” “supported by Russia!” assassinate the ‘Ho – after the convention – incensed by the idea that a half-black prostitute will soon become President upon the no-longer cover-up-able decay of the zombie in the Oval Office.

    And of course there will be no way to have a “secure” election – once the corpse of the Big Guy is flushed down the toilet and the Empress takes her place upon the golden commode. Not with those evil Ruskies interfering – amid an insurrection by white nationalists. So no election. At least 40% of the brain-dead population in this country will wildly support this move – many unashamedly wetting themselves in excitement – with another 20% uncommitted but going along for the ride. “I’m with Her!”

    As an additional benefit, we’ll get a wider war with Russia in Europe. War with Iran in the middle east. “We came. We saw. They died!” And what the hell, let’s throw Taiwan into the witch’s cauldron! Smash those semiconductor factories after a false flag incriminating China.

    Who has the testicular fortitude to steer us successfully through WWIII? No one but…Hillary! Hillary! Hillary!

    Big Mike? I have no strong sense of his role in the demolition of the US – and the world in general. Maybe VP? It’s a useless position. All he would have to do is pontificate, bloviate, and complain about white people. So yeah, why not? A Unity ticket!

    A witch hunt for “white nationalists” – and other “Russia-lovers”. Gun confiscation. The strangling of the internet. A “Russo-Sino-Irano” “cyberattack” on banking. Economic collapse. An invasion from within, as our treasured newcomers take what is rightfully theirs. And those are the accomplishments of only the “Beast’s first 100 days!

    That’s the light I see at the end of this tunnel. We could get the same with Trump too. Same dish, just slightly different spices.

    The architect myers briggs characters
    The Architect personality type, also known as INTJ, is a rare and unique individual. They are known for being reserved, logical, and analytical. Here are some key characteristics that define the Architect:

    Rational: Architects pride themselves on the power of their mind. They can reframe nearly any challenge as an opportunity to hone their rational thinking skills and expand their knowledge.
    Intelligent: INTJs are known for their intelligence and ability to think critically. They are strategic thinkers and set themselves high standards.
    Analytical: Architects are analytical and detail-oriented, often preferring to focus on the inner workings of a system rather than the overall picture.
    Decisive: INTJs are decisive and confident in their decisions, often relying on their own judgment rather than seeking input from others.
    Private: Architects tend to be private and reserved, preferring to keep their thoughts and feelings to themselves.
    It’s worth noting that Architects are a rare personality type, making up only about 2% of the population. They are often misunderstood and can come across as aloof or distant to others, but this is often due to their introverted nature and tendency to focus on their own thoughts and ideas.

    Brother AI

    Jarek: Brother, we can focus on the details because the overall picture is so clear in our minds. We see how they will fit into it. Do you understand, my mechanical friend? Other detail oriented people can work under our direction. You don’t want them at the top since a simple collection of details does not a blue print make.

    “… something beyond desperation has set in amongst the Democrats.”

    Democrats have fostered and empowered a sense of desperation among the American People for a few decades now. Now that They are also feeling desperate is yet another example of things going full circle. Karma you could call it. What you sow, you reap.

    And for the Destructive Dems… they are now reaping… and weeping. And desperate people are always dangerous because they add irrational panic to their already irrational politics and distorted view of themselves and lack of a grip on reality.

    If all this wasn’t so serious and potentially catastrophic this would be highly entertaining in a deeply morbid sense. Like watching the biggest train wreck that ever occurred on Planet Earth with sounds and impacts reverberating all over an uneasy Globe.

    But this is deadly serious and the whole Planet is in the crosshairs of badly damaged people who are not grounded in reality or morality. And that is not a recipe for success.

    “The first woman president… flies triumphantly out of the Democratic Convention.. The Golden Golem answers with a roar. The great re-match is on!”

    This is just like those scripted Wrestling entertainment-industry matches. But usually those wrestling shows like to match a Good Guy against a Bad Guy to get the Normies juices flowing.

    But although this National Political Wrestling Match is just as scripted and absurd as the TV version – this one would be a bit different. Two Bad Persons grappling with each other and calling each other bad names and getting their clueless follower’s juices flowing. With one of them being slightly less bad than the other.

    Sorry, Miss Never-Should-Be-President. Once a loser, always a loser. You’re going to get wiped out you know… ‘like a cloth’. All you can hope for is Gavin to jump into the ring and help you double-team that yuge guy who’s slightly less bad than you are and hope that you bought off the Ref enough to declare you the winner.

    While America cheers wildly for the Less Bad Dude to trump the written script.

    The 2024 reality is that nearly every significant Democrat politician on the state and national scene is a full-blown anti-freedom, anti-Constitution, anti-free market Socialist. Good luck finding any prominent Democrat that isn’t a Socialist–you won’t.

    The real internal battle–and one that is now tearing the Democrat Party apart from within–is the battle between the Fascist/Socialists and the Communist/Socialists in the Democrat Party. Most of the “traditional” Democrat politicians are now in the Fascist/Socialist crowd–the Pelosis, Schumers, Newsoms, Hillary, Obama, et al–all vehemently anti-freedom, anti-middle class, pro-dictatorship, BUT who are (just as Fascist/Socialist Hitler was) willing to allow fat-cat monopolistic and oligopolistic corporatists to exist, so long as the corporatists pledge their total allegiance to the Socialist regime. The Communist/Socialist faction of the Democrat Party–the Squad, Bernie Sanders, a goodly chunk of the BLM and anti-Jew crowd, and the many of then “climate change” clowns, et al–want to burn the whole private property system to the ground, including the corporatists.

    This leaves Biden and Co. in a total quandary. The Fascist/Socialists and Communist/Socialists–though both Socialist–can not co-exist with each other. Worse for them yet, their infighting is making their mutual hatred of freedom, hatred of the middle class, and hatred of the Constitution all the more apparent to an ever-increasing number of Americans. All of this is likely to boil over by the Democrat Convention, if not before. That will make the 1968 Democrat Convention look peaceful by comparison.

    He was looking downright chipper over the bargain we were getting in dead Ukrainians, but by March he was over in Ukraine again, looking exhausted, trying to broker some sort of deal that former president Trump would approve of, even though Trump is not the president now.

    He’s got fellow weirdo Mike Johnson on board, but he’s in tears that this thing, whatever it is, isn’t moving fast enough.

    A lot of talk today in the comments about Satan. Who he is, what groups constitute Satanism or Satanic worship, what the end game is for Satan and our common fate.

    By necessity, this causes similar talk about God, who He is, and what groups constitute Godly values, though — always a fascination to me — very little or nothing to explicate or praise the concrete or spiritual outlines of what a post-Godly world here would look like.

    The twin obsessions — Satan and God — form the classic religious dualism inherent in all three monotheistic religions, and it plays out in those arguing from both sides of the current Mid-East insanity which, of course, has its roots in the millenniums-old Jewish-Muslim divide.

    A big part of this partisan acrimony, certainly in the above comments, but also inherent in all three religions, is this insistence on God and Satan as anthropomorphic entities.

    Christians love to answer rivals’ challenges by a cop out, saying “it’s all in God’s hands — we don’t know what God thinks, or how He will handle things from here”, but they then go on to describe exactly when He will arrive to “set things right” and what He will do to unbelievers.

    Muslim supporters, though they’re not seen on CFN, follow the same playbook, of course.

    I get it. It’s a very seductive emotional game to play, similar to why Star Trek and Indiana Jones are wildly popular movies. We have the good guys (which we automatically identify with, and believe ourselves to be aligned with — self-satisfied virtue, no matter how much phony humility we assume for ourselves), and the bad guys (which, of course, we would never become, even if circumstances awarded us lopsided power — and even though the last century has proven what a joke, what a farce, humanism has been shown for, as a philosophical benchmark.)

    This anthropomorphism of divinity itself is ultimately shallow. Its fatal religious flaw is dualism. We think evil can be safely divided into us and them. We don’t know what we don’t know.

    • JohnAZ May 13, 2024 at 5:57 pm #

      I agree with you on the humanizing of God. We do not have a clue.

      Also, Satan which I believe is the collective evil that is the other half of humans. Each of us has our ideas of good and evil and must battle with that. Who is right and who is wrong.? Opinion!

      This blog is a good example. People calling people Satan or Satanic when their own viewpoints are Satanic. Who is right and who is wrong? Who is the ultimate Judge of that? Certainly no human being. “Judge not lest ye be judged!”

      • OG May 13, 2024 at 6:20 pm #

        Who is right and who is wrong.? Opinion!

        No, JAZ. There really is a God and there really is Satan. There is right and there is wrong. Absolutely. It is not merely a matter of opinion.

        For example, bombing God’s little innocent children to smithereens is wrong. Absolutely. Supporting other people’s bombing of God’s little innocent children to smithereens is wrong. Absolutely. There is not enough opinion in all the world to change those absolutes.

          What would I call God performing that interesting long list of activities with us humans? Well, how about calling it the Torah? Would that be a place to start – or also a place to stop as well. Or in other words is the Old Testament good enough for any of us by itself? Orthodox Rabbi Tovia Singer has a very interesting you tube channel that explains how in his view as a rabbi the Torah is all the religious literature one needs if you are seeking a relationship with God. He regards the “New Testament” as a sort of pagan corruption of Judaism. The messiah in the New Testament bears little resemblence to the messiah predicted, expected, and described in the “Old Testament”. People will reply that Singer is wrong, but of course there’s no way to really prove or disprove that. Yeah, it’s that egg/chicken question and argument that has no end.

          • messianicdruid May 15, 2024 at 7:39 pm #

            The Nation accepted the Covenant on their Oath that they would do all that stuff to be justified, which, of course, was and is impossible. Being based on man’s determination instead of God’s Promise to perform justification in them and through them. A Better Covenant.

Besides the irony of muslim Malmo boycotting a singer from Israel, which is not a part of Europe anyway, the other thing that caught my eye was the blatantly satanic mise-en-scene. It’s become fairly common, the occult references in pop culture. Eminent historians have explained that most dying civilizations become obsessed with dark magic.

          Well, OG, it would be nice, I suppose, if evil didn’t exist, but it does. Perhaps its only reason for existence is so we can reject it, abhor it, in others but most importantly, in ourselves.

          Perhaps life, or most lives, is a race against your short time on this planet: recognize one may be a sinner, and reject sin (I prefer to call it evil), asking for help in this task from Good – Logos – Life – God in His many names, Goddess in Hers, Angels in theirs; or, don’t recognize and realize on time, exit this plane, and be harvested to keep Moloch fed.

          Every life is different, but to be blind to this general idea is a terrible way to exist in the world.

            You are a good man, Rulo. I assume that you are generally quite successful at this.

            I have witnessed true evil. I have witnessed people actively choosing Satan. Not failing but actively choosing evil to hurt God.

            I have witnessed Satan’s power.

    Another angle of the Middle East crisis (good observation before by another poster of the triple whammy of c-19 – ukr- Holy Lands war) is I recall JHK writing about the true sustainability of the large populations of N. Africa and Middle East. Some areas are fertile. Most are not. USAID, the UN, Russia, EU, all send food aid.

    The Green Revolution of the 60’s created chemical pesticides and fertilizers, GMO seed, etc. The cheap energy era now coming to a close allowed for ample diesel, coal and gas to fuel all these advancements.

    But why do you think when Jews and Arabs feud, olive groves are burnt? Goats killed? Without cheap energy and food, population would be about what it was for 99 percent of history: a lot less.

          spur, dude, careful! “God can’t reveal himself to me because he doesn’t exist”

          I’d be careful about spitting in the face of a higher spiritual power, called many things by many cultures, but of which “God” is the commonly accepted form.

          Not because the higher power would care, but because it shows hubris, which begets nemesis.

          Chill out with the announcements that God is dead. You’re no Lucifer, you’re some guy in Tucson. You don’t know. You do know there’s good and bad. Just accept others call the good “God,”

          Now, if you think that there’s no spirituality at all in the Universe and our Earth, that only the material matters or exists, then there’s very little we can talk about.

          • tucsonspur May 13, 2024 at 10:27 pm #

            I’ve said many times here that I respect other people’s beliefs regarding God and religion. Existence and mortality are tough to deal with and I understand people’s need for meaning and comfort.

            Expressing my belief that God doesn’t exist in the way many people envision shouldn’t be taken as ‘spitting in the face’ of a higher spiritual power and it should not be taken as hubris. Those who take it that way are on their way to intolerance and narrow mindedness. But religions have never been known for their tolerance.

            Also, I did not say that God is dead. I said that he doesn’t exist even though he’s very much alive through ‘faith’ and fabrication in the minds of many.

            Spirituality is the key; I’ve always said that. I’ve answered questions about what I mean by that, probably rather awkwardly. Folks here can look up its various interpretations.

            Less religion and more spirituality and the world would be a much better place.

          • Rulo Deschamps May 13, 2024 at 10:46 pm #

            spur, good enough for me. The God is dead thing is Nietzsche, should have been in quotation marks. A very tortured man, who ended his life in madness. He got his own flavor of Nemesis, or of Karma.

            Less religion and more spirituality is something we can agree on. I hope we also agree that there’s a territory we should avoid at all costs, evil, and a garden we should cultivate, good actions, good thoughts and gratefulness. If ritual and religion can help one get there, great. But there are other avenues.

        Well, it should be an easy enough task for God to reveal himself to the human race – if indeed he does exists. It would certainly be a courtesy to us if he did, and it would solve many problems for us. Why is God choosing to be so absolutely mysterious and unavailable? Satan makes himself much easier to find – why won’t God?

    “Now, in the Democratic Party, because the mantle of the Democratic Party became identity politics. At its base, like the Black Lives Matter movement and all kindred movements like that, they had adopted Palestine as a cause, it’s true. And then when October 7th. happened and thereafter, the genocide in Gaza, that base was now energized by Palestine because, already… they were supportive of the cause and that created the big split in the party now, where the leadership doesn’t know what to do… because it created this monster, namely, it invested in the identity politics. And now the identity politics is saying, ‘Well, Israel, too, is a settler colonial State.’ That was part of identity politics. ‘Israel is oppressing the Palestinian identity’, you know.

    And so, in a way, the identity politics backfired on the Democratic Party because the leadership is deeply entrenched, both ideologically and financially… in supporting Israel. But the base of the Democratic party, because it was created on the ideology of identity politics… is totally committed to Palestine. And so, as I said… it backfired on the party, because the base had appropriated Palestine as its cause.”

    Political Opponents

    “Colombia and Israel have long shared close ties, Israel providing military equipment, training and more. The late Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez famously called Colombia ‘The Israel of Latin America’ for its role as a U.S. proxy and platform for maintenance of control throughout the region.

    Israel played a key role in turning Colombia into a narco-state terrorized by paramilitary death squads that, in collaboration with the military, committed what a Colombian court ruled was a ‘political genocide’ of a left wing party known as the Patriotic Union.

    Petro directly referred to this bloody history in his tweets denouncing Israel.

    ‘Neither the Yair Klein nor the Raifal Eithan will be able to say what the history of peace in Colombia is. They unleashed the massacre and genocide in Colombia’, he wrote. ‘Someday the army and government of Israel will ask us for forgiveness for what their men did in our land, unleashing the genocide.’

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to Petro:

    ‘Israel will not be lectured by an antisemitic supporter of Hamas, a genocidal terrorist organization that massacred, raped, mutilated and burned alive 1,200 innocent people on October 7. Shame on you President Petro!’

    I investigated Israel, Klein and Eitan’s role in the decades-long Colombian bloodbath for MintPress News in 2021, republished here…

    Castaño also ‘received lectures on how the world arms business operates, and how to buy arms.’

    In addition to the military training he received, Castaño credits his time in Israel with revolutionizing his entire worldview. During that period, the soon-to-be mass-murderer became an ardent admirer of Zionism and became convinced it was possible to stamp out the insurgency at home in Colombia:

    ‘I admire the Jews for their bravery in confronting anti-Semitism, their strategy for survival in the diaspora, the surety of their Zionism, their mysticism, their religion, and above all for their nationalism.

    It was there that I became convinced that it was possible to defeat the guerrillas in Colombia. I began to see how a people could defend itself from the whole world. I understood how to get someone involved who had something to lose in a war, by making such a person the enemy of my enemies. In fact, the idea of ‘autodefensa” [self-defense] weapons I copied from the Israelis; every citizen of that country is a potential soldier.’

    In some ways, it is even more remarkable that two Israelis advising Colombian government in mass-murder of its political opponents were operating independent from and unbeknownst to each other…” ~ Dan Cohen, Consortium News, ‘The Secret History of Israel’s Role in Genocide in Colombia’, May 13, 2024

I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested.

    AIPAC-funded Republicans threaten ICC: “Target Israel and we will target you”

    America’s top Republican senators are threatening the International Criminal Court (ICC) with retribution should the Hague-based tribunal proceed with serving Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other top Israeli officials with arrest warrants over the war in Gaza.
    A one-page letter that media outlets are describing as “terse” lays out the terms of these Israel-first senators in so many words: leave Netanyahu et al. alone or else.

    “Target Israel and we will target you,” the letter to Karim A. A. Khan from the ICC’s Office of the Prosecutor reads. “Such actions are illegitimate and lack legal basis, and if carried out will result in severe sanctions against you and your institution.”

    All of the letter’s signatories are Republicans and include the following names:

    Katie Boyd Britt of Alabama
    Kevin Cramer of North Dakota
    Marco Rubio of Florida
    Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee
    Mitch McConnell of Kentucky
    Pete Ricketts of Nebraska
    Rick Scott of Florida
    Tom Cotton of Arkansas
    Ted Budd of North Carolina
    Tim Scott of South Carolina
    Ted Cruz of Texas
    Bill Hagerty of Tennessee

    ***
    Such actions are illegitimate and lack legal basis, and if carried out will result in severe sanctions against you and your institution.

    They can’t possibly know any of that. They don’t even try to hide their corruption anymore.

    For shame.

      Some time ago, when doing a little bit of reading on civilizational (My spellcheck doesn’t like that word. Q… Shtik, can you get on this please?) collapses, I came across one point that was especially salient, namely that, toward the end of a civilization, the elites’ (politicians, etc;) infighting can ramp up.

    I disagree as to ‘they’ knowing what they’re going to do. And of course we know exactly what they’re going to do.

    One doesn’t need to be a student of history to know that situations like this is where assassination plots are generated.

    What a nightmare sequel. No one has the wherewithal to tell her, sweetheart, bless your heart, that ship has sailed. I assume it is because people wish to live. Sometimes when a giant skyscraper is collapsing its best to just scooch out the way a bit. Even if you simply wander over a few blocks. Or maybe help it and call Kong in lol. In any event, the ship has kinda sailed on the whole kitten caboodle but a lot of people missed the notification. Or they still don’t know how to receive notifications? What comes next is anybody’s guess for sure. It really could go any which way. I honestly don’t feel comfortable with any of these camps. It just doesn’t feel like home. It makes so much complete sense that when the world was a smaller place there were these little tribes that would literally move away from everyone. Like a hedge against mind rot and Sovietology.

      Somewhat relatedly (my spell-check doesn’t like that word), just before logging onto CFN, my mind sort wandered around how Jews– and everyone else– are a ‘diaspora’. We can’t seem to handle a State. And the thought does find a bit of support in the Dunbar Number (and similar numbers)… which segues nicely into your mention of tribes.

      My nickname over at the now-defunct/in-storage ‘The Oil Drum’ was ‘Tribe Of Pangaea- First Member’. Its concept was, for us and our situation, a metaphor; a species that faced an extinction bottleneck– ‘The Great Dying’– that took place around the time of the hypothetical landmass, Pangaea. I registered during the Macondo oil platform disaster as it was still leaking. Not too long after, Japan got its tsunami and Fukushima disaster and we chatted about that too as it was playing out.

      And now I’m on Clusterfuck Nation/Kunstler.com chatting about political disasters.

        Wow ok, so you are making your rounds then lol. We can also talk about ecological and economic disasters. Disasters R Us, would be a cute name for a little shop of some kind. Maybe we could sell miniature figurines of monsters like godzilla and kong and maybe bigger ones too like Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

        I think it has a lot to do with population density. Once things get dense and the social order gets complicated different people start to leave for different reasons. Most usually because they aren’t aligned well with the system that has been set up or maybe just because they are sick of all their close quarter neighbors.

        • Ron Anselmo May 14, 2024 at 4:28 pm #

          Hi Dreamy, nice to see you back. You’ve been missed. To your point, studies have been done with mice, showing that there is direct correlation between density and societal function.

          Beyond some critical point – too many mice in too close quarters – causes all kinds of aberrant behavior. A small population functions fine and flourishes – too many, not so much. Glad you’re back. <3

          • SoftStarLight May 15, 2024 at 2:11 am #

          • Ron Anselmo May 15, 2024 at 12:29 pm #

            Dreamy, to that point of yours, coincidentally, just as you and Zazzy talk about opening a little coffee and curio shop in Greenwich, as a means of income, simplifying your life and maintaining your sanity, I once was going to open a little coffee shop in downtown Missoula, Montana – Off the Wheel.

            For the exact reason you suggest – as the proposed name indicates. Twenty-four years ago – at the tender age of thirty-eight back then – I’d already had enough.

            Hope your weather’s been good in LA, we’ve recently had quite a run of violent storms coming in off the ocean – typical in the winter, but not the spring-turning-summer season. They’re more foreboding than usual. See anything over the horizon? <3

          • SoftStarLight May 15, 2024 at 4:06 pm #

            Wow that is really cool, Ron! I hear ya. I would love to do it now but there are some logistic issues I would have to work out to do so. Was Off The Wheel the name of your dream coffee shop? I love that!

            Um, not any instincts at the moment other than I am a little concerned about the upcoming hurricane season. I believe they are triggering stronger storms and weather events via geo-engineering. So if that is correct then we are looking at a rough ride through the Summer.

          • Ron Anselmo May 15, 2024 at 4:13 pm #

            Yep, Off the Wheel was the name. I was tired of running on the wheel, even back then.

    I never realized how much offense some people took to my saying that the out of Africa theory was a big sandwich of crap. It took even longer for me to procure concern. But since it is still a discussion point I would like to add that another ginormous dispersal point is actually in Siberia. There are at least seven and probably many more? Or at least a few. Where do you think mammoth hunters proliferated. These are all questions you can ask yourself when you realize you are 0.02% Nganasan.

    • The Man They Call Zazelle May 14, 2024 at 3:16 am #

      If you stand further back from the pointillist painting, you may find that we’re all ‘out of Earth’.

      Then again, some might inform me that I’m mistaken and that we were originally planted here by an alien species. Or abducted by them.

      Then there are those who supposedly think that Earth is flat or that astronauts never landed on the moon. But maybe they don’t actually believe it and are just playing games…

      • SoftStarLight May 14, 2024 at 11:25 am #

        I’m not sure if astronauts ever landed on the Moon. If they did would they have not already replicated such an achievement or gone further than they allegedly did in 1969? Yes, I too have heard many theories. It seems like a lot of science-y minded individuals believe that comets brought life, or the ingredients of life to Earth. The Breath of Life was breathed into the mud clay man. So, of the Earth while not of the Earth?

        • sadlycdn May 14, 2024 at 11:38 am #

          SSL, there were 5 other crewed moon landings after the first one in July, 1969. We were in such heated competition with the Soviet Union at the time I think they would have made an issue out of it if they suspected the landings were phony. There is no evidence the moon landings were a fraud.

          • SoftStarLight May 14, 2024 at 3:52 pm #

            But why did they not get out onto the surface and bounce around again? They should have done that to convince people it was all real. It’s just hard to believe we can’t do what we did 60 years ago. Btw, a Moon landing would be amazing so I would like to believe it for sure.

            SSL I doubt if there will another crewed moon landing. The Artemis Program appears to be going nowhere but consuming a prodigious amount of dollars. The head of NASA is elderly political hack Ben Nelson, and Artemus is a designated DEI mission, whose stated goal is to “put a minority and women crew on the surface of the moon.” With that mentality you can just imagine what the engineers & scientists look like, and what kind of quals they have.

      Did you know that those 12 traitorous scumbags threatened retaliation against not only International Criminal Court lawyers [!] but also their families! Did you know that this extortion letter from 12 of your AIPAC-funded (almost $7,000,000 (on the books) for this Dirty Dozen) ended with an Edward G Robinsonesque “You have been warned.”? [!]

    I’m sitting in my living room, looking out to the woods in my backyard through my wall-length sliders. We get lots of bird’s flying around with typical woodland creatures about.

    I now can understand why a lot of old men sit in rockers on their front porches and just look out at the world. It is very peaceful.

    Birds are everywhere. A lot of the time they congregate on the railing of my deck. Plain sparrows, red-breasted robins, beautiful red cardinals, huge, cawing crows, different kinds of woodpeckers, the occasional hummingbird and magnificent, soaring hawks. This year big honeybees are flitting to and fro. Woodchucks, turtles, deer cross through my back yard. And it’s not that far from downtown Boston.

    It’s so spiritual watching this parade of life. Since I retired and now have more time on my hands, I’ve really appreciated the world around me. I’ve always known I live in a beautiful place, but I usually had too much to do to enjoy it.

      We were so sick with the stomach virus, but although somewhat weakened from the after effects, we are fine. My wife now weighs what she did when we met 41 years ago, and I’m exactly at my high school weight. We look like a couple of old, wrinkled teenagers, lol. Well, not very wrinkled, but my white beard (hopefully soon I’ll cut it off) and grey hair (I’m grateful I still have most of it) is an obvious giveaway.

      Tomorrow we’re finally going to Foxwoods for a few days. We’ve had to postpone our visit 3 times already, but with one day to go, it’s looking good.

      I’ve said I appreciate a lot of things, but I know – almost for sure – that the SHTF is bearing down on us very soon. At least I’ve had some peaceful times.

          Mostly craps, but mixed with blackjack. How much blackjack depends on how lucky the tables are. Way back, I hit a fantastic blackjack lucky streak one day. I kept parlaying my bets and couldn’t seem to lose. I didn’t have much money in those days. I kept piling on the $5 chips (red chips) until I had a sky-high pile rising up from the table. I remember the Asian (probably Chinese) dealer asking me, “you still want led chips?” He couldn’t pronounce the ‘r’. I remember saying, “no, I want platinum chips”. I thought it was funny, but he didn’t get it. Oh, well, another tale from the casino.

          And thanks for the kind wish, OJ. From your mouth to God’s ear. Just say a little prayer for me. Maybe God will listen.

          There’s a very sweet, religious old lady with whom I play poker in my weekly game at our clubhouse. She tells me she prays for my wife every week in church. My wife’s been feeling better since the woman told me that. Funny thing.

    “Then, across the Sunday morning news digests there was talk about “a landslide win,” and even more amazed chatter about RINOs and Never-Trumpers returning to the folds of the Golden Golem’s heavenly garment, as though Mr. Trump had virtually Jeezified himself through a year of tribulation.”

    I haven’t read the Sunday Times article. I don’t like the sound of this:

    “Citing a “senior source,” the Sunday Times reported that Cameron had told Trump: “What are the best conditions in which you as president can make a deal in January? It’s both sides holding their lines and paying a price for that.””

    Lindsey Graham made a sudden appearance in Ukraine in March.

    Then Trump had Speaker Johnson at Mar-a-Lago in April, and Johnson was all in favor of all kinds of funding except the border, and Trump was all in favor of Johnson.

    Now errand boy Lindsey is talking about using nuclear weapons, because we did it to Japan. He’s getting real emotional over it.

          Putin has always been open to negotiation about the issue in Ukraine, and in the Tucker Carlson interview, he spelled it out that no one in the West has even attempted to communicate with him.

          At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised that the only thing Putin wants to hear from the West is a confession for the Moscow concert attack and the Nord Stream 2 explosion.

    Hard Truths About Civilian Combat Tactics When There Is An Active Shooter
    (Repost by request in light of the attempted massacre at a Mass in Louisiana on Saturday. It sounds like the parishioners, including women with young children, stepped up and physically thwarted the young demoniac. No casualties reported. -AB ’24)

    “Hard Truths About Combat Tactics”
    originally penned and posted in September, ARSH 2011

    I have received emails from very well-meaning guys and had conversations with various law enforcement and military fellows about civilian combat tactics, both in a general context AND as they apply to me directly given my situation. While I always appreciate expert advice and soak it up as much as I can, I have been struck by one commonality that I have heard and vigorously disagree with. I have been told over and over again that the first thing one must do when a close-quarter combat theater unfolds is to seek cover.

    I’m sorry, but that is wrong. And yes, I realize that I am directly contradicting the near-unanimous advice of men who have training and experience that I lack. I realize that, but I still must disagree. If I EVER encounter a gunman or gunmen situation as we saw yesterday* in Norway, or as in the Giffords shooter in Arizona, or as in musloid Mumbai-syle attacks I will NOT seek cover. The “seek cover” tactic completely hems YOU in and basically demands that the gunman move into a position such that YOU have a shot on him, but he doesn’t have a shot on you. Guys, that’s never going to happen. And it is completely chickens***.

    Any adult, male or female, with any degree of physical capability, regardless of armament, upon seeing a shooter should immediately RUN AT THE S.O.B. as hard and as fast as possible. If you have a gun, you draw it and start shooting as soon as you can. If you have a knife, draw it and brandish it and then go for the face and neck as soon as you are in range. If you are unarmed you can still tackle him and beat him into submission or death, if necessary, or gouge his eyes out (ladies).

    At this point, most everyone in this culture would say, “That’s crazy! I’m not doing that! I’d just get shot!”

    Um, yeah. I know.

    When crazed gunmen start shooting in public places, people tend to get killed. But there are two variables that can be modified: WHO gets killed and HOW MANY people get killed. I remember hearing Dennis Miller speak very poignantly about the Virginia Tech massacre shortly after it happened in 2007. One of the dead was an elderly professor, Dr. Liviu Librescu, who was a Holocaust survivor. When the gunman appeared at his classroom door, Dr. Librescu ran straight toward him and forced the classroom door shut and held it shut while the shooter tried to force entrance. This bought time for the students to escape through the window. The gunman eventually killed Dr. Librescu by shooting him through the door. All but one of Dr. Librescu’s students escaped. The point Dennis Miller made was that Dr. Librescu, when he saw the evil standing in the door – which he had seen before six decades earlier and thus recognized – didn’t run AWAY from the evil, he ran STRAIGHT AT IT.

    Our culture with its new god of “self esteem” has destroyed the average person’s sense of courage and self-sacrifice. There is no virility, and certainly no potency. While our fighting men in the military still have plenty of bravery, their pants-pissing, self-esteem candy@$$ generals refuse to let anyone fight because “someone might get hurt”. And so, our soldiers have to sit and watch as the enemy moves free and uncontested, and then our boys get killed as a result of that enemy freedom of movement. We should be bumrushing the S.O.B.’s with everything we have, from nukes to bayonets, if needed. Speaking of bayonets, did you know that the U.S. military has removed bayonet training from basic training? Apparently it was too aggressive, or some bee-ess like that. Nevermind that a bayonet charge is still an incredibly effective tactic which was last used by a squad of Brits in Iraq who were ambushed, pinned down and outnumbered 5:1. They fixed bayonets, charged, killed 35 of the 100 Iraqi rebels, and sent the remainder running with the contents of their bowels evacuated. The Brits suffered three very minor wounds. If they had used contemporary Western sissy self-esteem “I might get hurt” combat tactics, they would have been shot dead to the last man.

    This is also what happened at Columbine High School. The SWAT Team sat outside the school while the killers roamed free because the SWAT Team was trained to not engage if they could potentially get killed. So, they sat and waited for Harris or Klebold to step in front of a window and give them a clean, “safe” shot or some such. The only reason Columbine ended was because the two shooters shot themselves. They were granted 100% situational control to the very end by the SWAT Team.

    In Norway*, even if there were two gunmen (they’re still not sure), the gunmen were outnumbered something like 200:1. The adults and older boys (I think it was a group of teenagers) could have rushed the gunmen. Would people have been killed? Absolutely – but not the 85 that were killed. A gunman can’t kill everyone if being rushed by dozens of people. Numbers WILL break through.

    And here’s the tough part for most people. Let’s say that I rush a gunman. In the time it takes the gunman to see me rushing him, aim, fire and drop me, other people have advanced four or five steps closer to him. Each person he has to kill buys the other people four or five steps. This is war, writ small. What do you think D-Day was? Eisenhower knew that the Nazi machine gunners would mow down thousands of troops – but both Eisenhower and the soldiers themselves knew that the Nazis couldn’t kill all of them. Zero casualties was never the objective. The objective was victory, and those two things are NOT the same, and sometimes they are exact opposites. If you want zero casualties, surrender.

    In our culture, not only has the notion of self-sacrifice unto death been completely lost, but people have been taught that they are personally “God’s gift to the world” and that their life is the single most important thing that there is, ever has been and ever will be. People have such an inflated sense of their own importance that they simply cannot fathom that perhaps their ultimate “purpose” on this earth might be to buy 2.3 seconds of time so that someone else can advance on a gunman, ultimately saving numerous lives. This ties directly to the fact that pretty much no one believes in the first paragraph of the Catechism: Q: Why do I exist? A: I exist to know, love and serve God in this world, and BE HAPPY WITH HIM FOREVER IN THE NEXT.

    What people fail to understand is that the life of freedom and decadent prosperity that they now enjoy was bought and paid for by millions of men who ran into gunfire, bayonets, canon fire and swords over the centuries so that the cause of righteousness could advance. Do you like being a free person who can sit and read whatever you want on this thing called the internet? (For now…) Are you glad that you are Christian and not musloid? Thank the long dead and individually forgotten men who fought at Vienna, Lepanto and Tours. If it weren’t for them, you either wouldn’t exist, or you would exist and be a musloid. They died not just for their immediate families, but also for YOU. I’m sure many an evening campfire throughout the centuries heard soldiers ask the question, “I wonder what the world will be like in the year 2000?” Our lives are the answer to their question, and sadly we have almost completely pissed all of it away.

    The problem today is that people are so monstrously narcissistic that they are incapable of viewing themselves as anything other than the sole beneficiary and culmination of history, when in fact we are all just bricks in the road of time that stretches on in front of us. Everyone has been taught that every single person is born for earthly glory, fame and riches, and anything that falls short of that just CAN’T be right and certainly can’t be God’s will. I have had, on more than one occasion, Christian people say to me with a completely straight face, “What purpose can a person serve and what good can they do if they’re dead?”

    Oh, none. There is no example of death serving a greater purpose. Especially in Christianity. Not-a-one. Sigh.

    Peter Paul Reubens, The Crucified Christ, ARSH 1613

    The amount of damage that the infiltration of the Church and the resulting Novus Ordo effiminized “church of nice” paradigm, and Super-fun Rockband entertainme-church (™) has done to this culture can not be overstated. And you wonder why I rail about these things like I do.

    When the devil shows up on your doorstep, you fix and raise your bayonet and run at him as hard as you can, precisely for the love of God and for the love of your fellow men, and leave the rest to God.

    Jarek: Number of women who have an appreciation of our mighty dead? Zero – at best. In fact, many have a negative appreciation of them, in other words they despise them a la Cultural Marxism.

    The number of men who appreciate what our heroes bequeathed to us via the Conquest? Five to ten percent perhaps. Are you starting to see what women shouldn’t be voting? And only a few men?

    Some have questioned the behavior of the White male victims during the Knoxville massacre. Surely they could have at least died fighting instead of letting themselves and the women be slaughtered.

    Obviously Churches need armed guards at this point. Let Muslims or antifa know that they’re going to pay with their lives if they even succeed at all.

    A few feminine outliers appreciate the sacrifice of our mighty dead. But their number isn’t statistically significant. Women don’t understand numbers very well. The other day Ber cited Crisupus Attucks as an example of the major Black influence anent the Revolutionary War. Soon they’ll be considered the major influence. He was a Black thug who got his head blown off for throwing ice balls at British troops. That’s it.

    And ice ball made out of heavy melting snow can break facial bones. It warranted a deadly response.

      “Number of women who have an appreciation of our mighty dead? Zero – at best. ”

      “Are you starting to see what [sic] women shouldn’t be voting?”

      So, the toad makes an assertion with zero evidence to back it up. In passing, he insults all the widows, fiancees, mothers, grandmothers, daughters, sisters, cousins, aunts, nieces etc. whose men died fighting, and who spent their lives grieving them.

      Then he makes his usual stupid point, by referencing the thing he just made up without providing any evidence.

      And this clown thinks ‘women don’t understand numbers very well’

      Give me strength.

      Just because this Crispus was a “black thug” he’s not worth remembering and celebrating as a ballsy man who was true to his convictions and died for it, that a new Nation be born.

      It’s disheartening how a narrow race tunnel vision blinds you to the fact that this Crispus (I had to look him up) with his snowballs was doing just what the article you shared suggested: be bold in the face of aggression, attack with or without weapons (are ice balls weapons?)

      The black, the native, the Spanish, the French, the waves of immigration, as as much part of the historical American Nation as the Anglo Saxon Protestants.

      For a self proclaimed Catholic Irish, you seem to profess a strange allegiance to those of “purer blood” who always consider your race untermenschen. “No dogs, no blacks, no Irish” was a common sign in London back in the day.

      • Jarek May 14, 2024 at 11:38 pm #

        During the Irish riot, Blacks came out to loot stores. Ballsy? Always. It has nothing to do with what was being protested. The Irish should have stomped them.

        Found a good quote for Rulo about those whom Alba won’t talk about because you’re not supposed to because they don’t like it:

        “The homogenity of European nations is
        fundamentally against the interests of the
        Jewish people. We are at a critical turning
        moment in history. The West is becoming more and more racially diverse, and soon the
        White Race will be forced into submission.
        The future of the west is that of an ethnically
        diverse melting pot, where the evil divisions
        Of race and white supremacy no longer
        reign. This is all thanks to the tremendous
        power of our movements and
        institutions. This great change will be
        catalyzed by Moslem settlement. From the
        land of Israel, Jews will forever be a light
        unto the new monoracial world as
        guarenteed by G-d.

          Alba doesn’t have any problem talking about ‘it’. She just doesn’t think ‘they’ are uniquely the problem. For every Rothschild, there’s a Rockefeller, and a Li, and a DuPont, and a Kennedy, and an Onassis, and a Collins. That’s about as many as I can ever remember off the top of my head (oh, and I never forget Satan, the daddy of them all – he concerns me most of all). And you literally don’t know what they get up to. And don’t forget the Rhodes-Milner bunch and everything they’ve spawned, including two world wars, with the specific aim of extending the British Empire forever and everywhere.

          Don’t twist my words, toadie. Word twisters shouldn’t be allowed to vote, because they’re not trustworthy.

          And just so you know, because you have reading comprehension difficulties, I don’t like Islam, specifically, one bit, despite my kids and now my grandson all having had very nice Muslim friends from school. But then I’m not keen on Aryan pagan mystics either, because that leads to a lot of nasty shit too. Nothing to choose between an Islamic psycho beheading someone and a Nazi psycho beheading someone, or burning them alive in a church.

          • Jarek May 15, 2024 at 12:06 pm #

            Same old feminine crap: Weak, feminized “good” guy vs evil, masculine Nazis. You’re good so you’re for the good guys who will always be defeated.

            Thank God for feminine hypocrisy. You SAY this but choose your husbands on their strength. Unfortunately you don’t know you’re doing this and will still vote for “good” guys.

            Everything you had, have, or will ever have is because of “bad” men you would have hated but been attracted to (if normal).

            Still pretending there’s no difference between fighting a war and committing what everyone recognises as war crimes and atrocities (and yes, I know there are some who see no difference, because their moral faculties are blunted).

            You have to keep doubling down because you talked yourself into a corner by explicitly justifying burning old men, women and children alive, when there is no possible justification.

            I am tempted to say you’re irredeemable, but I don’t believe anyone is irredeemable, even you.

            And anything I have that is due to the kind of men who burn women and children alive you are welcome to – you obviously value it more than I do.

            Further down you say (rightly) that Jesus is present whenever two people meet together in His name. Perhaps you think He’ll still hang around when they try to justify burning children alive. You pervert Christianity, when you are not insulting it.

            Just because Satan is Rex Mundi, it doesn’t follow that you’re supposed to serve him. Your job here and now is to advance God;s kingdom, not his. Sorry if your church didn’t teach you that. Or rather the church you used to pretend to believe in.

            If you’re definitively post-Christian and are a settled Aryan pagan, then you have no such obligation and are free to admire people who burn children alive to obtain land and ‘stuff’ for whomever.

          RD: What do you think of Michael Jones? A genius on the Jewish problem and a staunch defender of Catholicism – which he don’t appear to understand too well. Hates the Traditional Catholics and the Latin mass movement – which is simply crazy.

          • RD3 May 15, 2024 at 12:28 pm #

            Jones is extremely knowledgeable about the the history of the Church and the Jewish problem. His greatest deficiency is that he affords zero weight to race or ethnicity. To him, only religion and language are important. In reality, race isn’t everything, but its not nothing.

            I think you are misinterpreting his views on traditionalist Catholics and the Latin mass. What he is saying is that the traditionalist movement and the Latin Mass are being used as a wedge to divide Catholics and to create schism. I wouldn’t be surprised to see that some of the same people funding the Hamas protests are also funding elements engaged in fomenting schism. Archbishop Lefebvre was a great man and he was correct about the evil interpretations of Vatican II that have led us to our present situation, but breaking away was ill-advised. The Catholic Church is unique in that it hasn’t splintered into a million squabbling little protestants sects with only minor quibbles separating them. Every time they split, they grow weaker and more ridiculous. And, of course, most of them have moved hard left over the past several decades.

            We must “break away” because they have already left the Church and the “Church” is no longer Catholic.

            The Church isn’t the buildings, but where any two are gathered in his name. They have the buildings – basically all of them. Spiritually they left us. So physically we must leave them.

            I used to think that way, and at one point, I contemplated joining SXPX. I reasoned, however, that Jesus directly handed Peter the keys to The Kingdom. While man is weak and fallen, and man is capable of evil, the Church was handed to us by Jesus and cannot be evil. It must not be torn apart, but built back up.

          • Jarek May 15, 2024 at 10:12 pm #

            Well something is obviously drastically wrong. The alleged pope is teaching heresy. Is he is still the Pope? Can a non-Catholic be Pope? As far as I can see, the Council elected an overt and manifest heretic, so the whole process has broken down.

            What of the Petrine promise? Barnhardt proposes an answer to this mystical legalism, namely that Benedict never actually resigned so Bergoglio’s election was invalid.

            This is more mysterious than a man invalidating himself by heresy, or the Council electing such a man. This seems to be your mindset, thus I bring it up to show you you’re wrong even from this angle.

            “SSPX”

            Are you familiar with M.E. Bradford’s book: “A Better Guide Than Reason?” In it, he argues that tradition, custom, manners, convention, heritage, and the wisdom of those who came before us, etc. are a better guide to our actions than reason. I’m not classically educated and my training pales in comparison to say GK Chesterton, Thomas Aquinas, Hilaire Belloc, Evelyn Waugh, etc.

          I haven’t deliberated on that particular question. I didn’t follow his reasoning completely though it seemed like he was saying the t has a relationship to old English and the harshness of old English or something like that. Instinctively I am feeling against his suggestion. Because saying it with a southern drawl can provide the effect that he’s seeking to achieve by leaving the t off and at the same time retain a connection to the original. Perhaps the Southernization of Zar is the actual needed change lol.

      Jars, you need to learn to use quotation marks – actually most folks here do. At the beginning of every paragraph quoted, and at the end of the last. You of all people, who understand the sanctity of language, should know this. I expect better from you in the future.

      But you make a good point. I have long said this about the people herded into cattle cars, and Solzhenitsyn said it about the victims of Stalinism – “Attack the sonsabitches!” Sure some of you will die, but so will some of them. Let their hearts pound and their pants be pissed the next time they try to SWAT some Amish farmer for selling unpasteurized milk.

      The greatest compliment ever paid to me, by the most bad ass sonofabitch I’ve ever known – 3 tours in ‘Nam as a LRRP with the 101st Airborne – was, “You’re the kind of guy that runs toward the sound of gunfire.” Well, if the time ever comes, I hope he was right.

      Listening Truth? And where are those goddamned chickens?

        BB, “I have long said this about the people herded into cattle cars, and Solzhenitsyn said it about the victims of Stalinism – “Attack the sonsabitches!”

        I always wondered the same thing.

        One knows: many times he could have died, friends and relatives worthier than one have been dead for years, one has been spared because of Grace or sheer luck. What’s wrong with dying now?

        Another thinks: If I comply and don’t make waves, I may survive all this.

        I think both of us are of the former category, aided perhaps by whatever insights were gleaned from philosophy, meditation and psychedelics. The luck or the Grace that brought us to today are to be grateful for, but we know they are not forever.

        The latter category is where most people are, and in fairness it’s wrong to call them sheeple or other insults; they just can’t see; they don’t understand; they are peaceful, dedicated to the arts or commerce or whatever, and above all: trusting authority. A terrible flaw and blind spot of which few are aware.

      Janos – yes, very few men of valor left. Thus, our present predicament. There a few though, and their women that support them.

      We see what’s happening but lack the courage to run toward and overcome the obvious clear and present danger. Our children and grandchildren will judge us; accordingly, harshly.

      You may be right; they’ll read scrolls of your comments and ask why. Why didn’t we do anything? Anything but type comments? Every man needs to look in the mirror and ask himself that question.

      The only answer I can come to leads me to the thought, “I have too much to lose”. My eldest son, twenty-one in June, advises me that’s an error in thinking – if we don’t fight now, we lose everything. He’s a smart young man.

      There is no greater sacrifice than giving one’s life so that others may live.

      Here’s an example, of the “never-should-be-forgotten” kind. In January of 1982, a plane goes down in the frozen, icy Potomac River. Crash survivors, in shock, are fighting for life in the severely hypothermic conditions.

      Chopper rescue was in it’s infancy, the only chopper pilots qualified to make such rescues, were the ones experienced in lifting men out of the boonies in ‘Nam. Luckily, the police chopper pilot was just such a man of valor.

      A man of even greater valor, was Arland D. Williams, Jr., a crash survivor in the river – one of six. Each time the chopper dropped in with a life ring on a rope, he made sure someone got in, and pulled up.

      He did it five times – for five others – before himself. When the chopper dropped in the sixth time, he had gone under. The video is out there, it’s heart-wrenching.

      There is no greater sacrifice…

      • Rulo Deschamps May 15, 2024 at 8:15 pm #

    J,

    And who will be the first to charge the gunman, who will be the first willing to die? Can you have faith in others to follow through after they’re splattered with the first victim’s brains, their ears still ringing from the gunshots? Maybe they gain two or three steps, but the gunman drops back four. Now what? Die mutthafukka!, the gunman cries out, and blasts away at the bold and brave, stepping backwards again.

    There are now, say, 11 dead. Is the crowd still charging?

    Sometimes even the best can’t pass the test.

      How about the heroes of 9/11. Controversies aside, the NYPD and NYFD went towards the conflagration and were compromised by the burning contents of the fires. Many, a large % have died and gotten cancer from the toxins that the fire released from the contents of those buildings.

      I wonder, if the fires released the toxins, what does everyday exposure do to the people working in those insulated buildings.

      For example, PVC in the heat and sun in Arizona will fall apart with time, literally dissolve. Long term exposure of any plastics and paint, hmmm?

    Remember the example of Pope John Paul I–
    Don’t remember him? He died of old age about a week after being declared Pope, getting the oldsters of the Vatican to think about what God might think for the first time in decades.

    That in mind, what would happen if both Trump and Biden passed away from natural old age about a week before the election? I am hoping this is how it works out.

    MSNBC tells me Potatohead Joe will “steamroll” the Donald if there is a presidential debate. They predict DT will try all sorts of tricks to weasel his way out of any debate. Joe is taunting him in his latest commercial. “Let’s get ready to rumble”. Trump will get destroyed just like Cornpop.

    • beantownbill. May 15, 2024 at 10:28 am #

      @stelmos,

      I recall a Sgt. Bilko episode from back in the ‘50’s wherein Bilko gets what’s-his-name, Muldoon, from Car 54, on the $64,000 Question ( which was very hot then). Of course, Bilko being Bilko, tries to fix the game so his person couldn’t help but win. He inserted a tiny device in Muldoon’s ear so Bilko’s team, armed with encyclopedias, could feed his guy all the answers. Remember, this was in the 1950’s.

      I bring this up because it’s a little scary that Biden is being allowed to debate Trump. Biden has no mind, so why would the Dems ok this? Unless they have another plan. Something’s up. Well, we’ll see.

      • stelmosfire May 15, 2024 at 11:05 am #

        Joe 54, Where are you? Biden will debate after strict rules are laid down. 1. No open mics, so no interrupting, which would totally derail SloJoe. 2. CNN runs the debates so Joe has all the pre-arranged answers, ala Clinton in ’16 3. RFK is excluded.

        • JohnAZ May 15, 2024 at 11:53 am #

          That sounds about right.

          I am amazed that the handlers have allowed Biden to do this, if he has a bad night, it could be disastrous for the Black hats.

          Shenanigans are afoot, you better believe it.

          Left alone, the debate would be a sword fight between a blind man and an expert at the skewer.

        The way that I hear it, we’re being shown a real-life movie, Bill. A Hollywood production that dwarfs Kubrick’s now quaint Apollo Moon Landings [1969-1972].

        In real life, the valid 2020 ballots were water-marked as President Trump had his Space Force run the biggest sting operation in the history of mankind.

        The real Joe Biden was executed in 2021. At the mock inauguration, where military turned their back on the faux POTUS, “Joe Biden” was played by actor Arthur Roberts. He still does to this day. [“My butt’s been wiped.”]

        The White Hats have chosen to awaken the sheeple slowly lest they invoke pandemonium in the streets, we’re told.

        The world of Q always provides such addictive “hopium” … but the real world keeps matching that conspiracy theory step-by-step.

        As Archie Bunker famously said, “Kay saroo saroo.”

        ***

        They only had one debate last time.

    Anyone else watch Shogun? Clavell’s novel about power in 1600 Japan has rung a bells with me.

    Toronaga, the Japanese lord the novel is centered upon, is a Japanese edition of DJT. Quickly, the story is about an Englishman that is shipwrecked in Japan in 1600 and gets involved with Toronaga as he connives his way to being Shogun, the top dog in Japan at the time.

    Th similarity comes in that Toronaga has the Japanese book thrown at him, in all ways. The council working for an underage Emperor tries all kinds of political shenanigans to get him to commit Hari Kari. Ishido is the “bad guy” who has all the other regents in his pocket as he tries to bring down Toranaga.

    Toronaga with he help of Angin, the Englishman, is smarter than the entire council, clobbers them politically, and becomes the Shogun at the end.

    Hmmm, sound like any man or situation that is happening today?

They aren’t going to do shit but be the first to run and hide somewhere. Just like Hitler did. He spent all that time chest pounding and flexing, then when the time came he got scared and ran underground just like Blinken and the rest of them would do.

    Russia informed the UK ambassador that if UK weapons were used to kill Russian civilians, Russia would respond by hitting UK military assets, not necessarily in Ukarine.

    So “Ukraine” used Czech weapons to kill 30 civilians in Belgorod last Sunday.

    Now the prime minister of Slovakia, who was refusing to go along with the sanctions against Russia, and weapons sending to the Kiev regime, has been shot, possibly fatally.

    At what point does Russia realize that the Empire is going for broke?

    That is, the Empire is broke, and really, really wants to be able to loot Russia the way they did in the 90s.

    They can’t stop, won’t stop…..until someone stops them.

    • TruthSeeker1986 May 15, 2024 at 2:23 pm #

      @Paula D

      But who is going to? I wish we could. By we I mean the people.

      This is what a guy from Spain told me when I copied and pasted what you said.

      “A funny thing in Russian politics is that they blame others of things they do. Another funny thing of Russian politics is that they have been saying “if this happens this will escalate”. And that eventually happened. And never escalated that’s why nobody takes them seriously”

      “The weaker they are the louder they bark, mate. Remember that.”

      • Paula D May 16, 2024 at 7:19 pm #

        Spaniards get the same propaganda that we do. Is he accusing Russia of bombing its own civilians? Because that is nuts.

        It is true that Russia has issued warnings that the west ignored, and that Russia still has not used nuclear weapons.

        That is the same thing that Iran did.

        It is too weird for westerners to understand that some people don’t want to destroy the world, and will back down when the chance comes, even if the Golden Billion then points their fingers and laughs.

        The west would rather die in a nuclear war than look weak.

    • TruthSeeker1986 May 15, 2024 at 2:25 pm #

      He also said

      “Also the problem of Russia strategy is that yeah, nuclear weapons are scary but…. what happen if your enemies no longer fear your great asset? Imagine that Russia start launching nuclear weapons… where? How many? What happens next?”

      • Paula D May 16, 2024 at 7:21 pm #

        Putin said a long time ago that if nuclear war breaks out, Russians will die martyrs, but the western public will just die.

        I’m not religious, so I think we’ll mostly all just die. No one goes to heaven.

      • Paula D May 16, 2024 at 7:23 pm #

        It’s all about the resources, though.

        They can loot us, but we have blown through all our resources.

        Russia still has a lot. That is what they are going for.

      The PM of Slovakia had, just days before he was shot, (a) said his country would not go along with the WHO Pandemic Treaty and (b) that he was going to open a criminal investigation into the ‘pandemic’ response that had killed so many of his people.

    During my nearly 16 years here on CFN I have periodically become disgusted enough to attempt to stop posting comments but eventually I fall off the wagon. My disgust is primarily for two reasons: 1. other commenters who make no attempt to correct their errors BEFORE posting and 2. a certain group of religious fanatics who quote chapter and verse from so-called holy scripture in the apparent belief that doing so will save their immortal souls or the souls of others. Sorry to inform you that I’m a non-believer in the mold of Tucsonspur…no God, no Satan, no afterlife, etc., etc.

    So, effective today, I will once again attempt to not read the CFN comments and not post any comments of my own. I will, however, continue to read JHK’s biweekly essays.

    When I disappear like this someone inevitably will wonder if I have croaked. If I DO croak you will be advised by my wife who will inform you via a comment under my screen name.

        I didn’t tell you because what if you were disgusting? Then I could sneak out without you knowing it was me. I’m sorry, that’s not very admirable.

    I suspect it’s all of the above. A person can only take so much pressure. Historically I’ve been emotionally strong, but I’ve never been 79 before.

    Oh, well. All I can do is keep on carrying on, so that’s just what I’ll do.

      @Beantownbill

      79, honestly if I were that old today I dont think it would bother me much unless I had grandchildren or something to be concerned about but I have no kids. Still I think people my grandmother age don’t worry a whole lot even if they do have grandchildren.

      They worry some but not as much as most people my age usually do who are young and still have a long way to go unless we die of some illness younger. My grandmother also don’t spend a lot of time focusing on news stuff either and she may not be all that aware of everything that’s happening. She’s 94 years old, she lived a very long time.

      But to live as long as any of you have, you were probably always healthy most of your life. My grandmother survived a venomous spider bite in her garden, she survived eating too much pork that almost did a number on her so she had to quit, yet she still lived to be 94 and is still alive today.

      Considering how bad everything is….I can understand how it even affects much older people whether they have family or not. In my case I just don’t want to live in these troubling times at all anymore..Times were always hard and tough but all this nuclear war talk shit is just so hard to deal with anymore. So far I’ve had three nightmares about it this year.

      I feel like seeing someone pulling off a Sarah Conner on some of these instigators. If you don’t know what that means. Look up that scene from Terminator 2 judgement day after Sarah Conner loses her mind and goes after the guy responsible for causing Armageddon. People like Blinken, Lindsey, all of these assholes make me wonder why their mothers failed to abort them.

But I’m slowly getting my endurance back. I’m a strong sucker. Pretty soon I’ll be able to run from Boston to Baton Rouge. When you see a very dirty, sweaty old man, you’ll know it’s me

    • TruthSeeker1986 May 15, 2024 at 5:44 pm #

      Anyway I’m sorry if I’m always negative all the time…I feel dark in my thoughts daily because of the way things are going. Even more so due to the lack of valor in the world to stop any of it…Waiting around for the citizens to rise up and say enough is enough, some people prefer to pray and believe some spiritual beings is going to do something, others put their faith in politicians…

      Regardless, I’m in the same position you are in. I feel less upbeat about the world around me, even more so due to the fact I feel disconnected from this country thanks to all the illegals flooding in….I then look around and try to figure out “what is the point anymore?” I use to pledge my allegiance to the flag in school back in the 90s and had no idea why we had to do it every morning.

        @ TS,

        I have a motto: Never, ever let the world do you in emotionally. Of course there’s ups and downs. We’re all human. But stay strong. Just the fact you’re talking about it is a good sign.

        It’s very nice to feel happy. But you know what? The world doesn’t owe us any happiness. Therefore it’s up to ourselves. You don’t believe in God? No problem. God won’t hold that against you if you’re a good person. Just think of the upside. You die and wake up In another environment. What a pleasant surprise!

        Of course, we can’t prove it. That’s why we’ve been blessed with the ability to have faith.

        It’s not all about us. Those who’ve had the most rewarding lives are those who’ve helped others.

        When I say this, I can’t help thinking about Jimmy Carter. He made a lousy president. But he grew in spirit. After his presidency he devoted his life helping others. He’s not a perfect man, but he’s done a lot of good.

        • TruthSeeker1986 May 15, 2024 at 8:32 pm #

          @Beantownbill

          The world may not owe us any happiness, but that also doesn’t give the world the right to cause me problems and pain either. When I go out I mind my own business, I’m not out in people’s faces starting shit and then getting my family members house shot up because I’m trash talking some thug in the street with bigger guns than me and then saying “that guy is just bluffing, he’s not going to do anything”. That’s how I look at the U.S. a nation that constantly provokes others and who ends up paying the price for this? We do. It’s not that hard to leave other nations alone but the U.S. refuse to do so which is WHY it need it’s ass kicked.

          “ Of course, we can’t prove it. That’s why we’ve been blessed with the ability to have faith.”

          Its a blessing to have doubts. You have to learn to trust someone. The trustworthy will increase your faith while you sort stuff out.

          Stick to gambling at Foxwoods Bill . You don’t have any correct information about Christianity especially “You don’t believe in God? No problem. God won’t hold that against you if you’re a good person. Just think of the upside. You die and wake up In another environment”. What a pleasant surprise!” If you believe this you’re in for an UNPLEASANT surprise

    Remember my Pertussis last September through March this year.

    Interesting read:

    “Whooping Cough Didn’t Appear o worry the NHS”

    Epidemic in London, it really got the author.

    I caught it in either Belfast or Inverness. There was a woman on the bus in Inverness with the deepest cough I have ever heard.

    I found out that the problem may be that the DpT vaccine is scheduled every ten years. BUT, the Pertussis part only lasts 5-7 years. We had allowed the ten year period lapse.

    I also believe after many colds, Covid and now this Pertussis that the immune system molds itself to a locale. So travelers to other areas are at higher risk for catching their local bugs. Remember that the memory system in the immune system is based on exposure. Al the Vitamin C, Zinc and D cannot stop something that you haven’t seen before.

      I can’t read the article, John, as I’m not a subscriber.

      Here’s one this week’s or last week’s The Expose UK on the whooping cough vaccine. You’re welcome to it – the vaccine, that is.

      expose-news.com/2024/05/14/whooping-cough-vaccination-a-story-of-dishonesty/

      And guess what they’re using to ‘test for’ whooping cough? That’s right – PCR – the ‘test’ that had a 100% failure rate when ‘diagnosing’ whooping cough in 350 people (in Tennessee?) in 2005, who, it turned out, didn’t have whooping cough at all. That story is on the CDC website.

      My husband had a PCR ‘test’ for pertussis back in February or March. We still don’t know if he actually had pertussis as no-one has given him the results of the ‘test’.

      Another thing they’ve always done to over-hype the pertussis vaccine is to call whooping cough ‘croup’ when it presents in vaccinated children, so it doesn’t get counted as ‘breakthrough cases’ of pertussis.

      I’ve been coughing for weeks, although I’m not – and have not been – otherwise unwell. Today my hairdresser said her husband was the same but worse (coughing until sick in his case). I’m willing to bet that the people who are getting these extra respiratory conditions are covid-vaxxed. Immune systems have been depleted, so it’s hardly surprising that respiratory illnesses are up and are harder to shift.

        I will give you a marker. Pertussis does not go into the lungs, it hangs out in the throat just above the larynx. Its real characteristic is the GD mucus production, which seems to be never ending. The cough is a result of the mucus. I will tell you the thins we did to get rid of it, which none really worked.

        Antibx. Z pack X2, Bactrim, amoxicillin.

        Changed lisinopril to losartan, one side effect of lisinopril is chronic cough.

        Upped our proton blockers for the stomach as reflux can cause mucus production.

        The model I found was that the bacteria wedge themselves in between the cilia in the throat which makes them hard to attack for the immune system or antibx. Most pertussis just runs its course.

        If you have a newborn in the family, they cannot express the mucus and can die because their lung capacity is too small to express the mucus. We have a new one on the way in the family, so we doubled up vaccine plus disease to insure no transmission. My. Wife still has not kicked it totally. It is in her larynx now.

        It is really nasty stuff, I agree with you that the Covid plus vaxx probably debilitated the immune system and opened the gateway.

        It is distressing the NHS seems to be ignoring the situation, as you are finding out, it is not trivial.

          I have given hundreds of DT shots to adults, John, over the decades.

          As I told you before, they only added the P to the DT for adults maybe 15 years ago. I tried to go to the CDC to find out when, but they pretend that it was always so.

          When they changed to the TDaP the instructions were that if an adult had never had a pertussis vaccine (most adults at the time), then they would get ONE dose.
          After that they would go back to the DT only. They didn’t recommend that they get the P every 10 years.

          I don’t know why you still believe that natural immunity is not as good as a vaccine. That was never the stance before 2020, but you seem to have internalized it.

          You don’t need a vaccine for any disease you have already recovered from.

    If Anthea is around… you posted something over the weekend about a stubborn rash you’d been dealing with.

    Have you considered nickel allergy in foods? My gf had an “eczema” rash on hands and feet off and on for years that cleared up when we read that chocolate is very high in nickel and she quit eating any chocolate.

    • stelmosfire May 15, 2024 at 6:57 pm #

      Nickel allergys huh? When I was a kid I had a terrible allergy to copper. My feet would swell up something terrible. Once I took the pennies out of my loafers my condition improved considerably. Of course then all the kids accused me of being “light in the loafers’

      A lot of jewelry has nickel in it. I had a ring that all of a sudden started to make my skin under it break out and itch like crazy. Remedy? I put the ring in a drawer.
