Where are Clintons, these dog days of summer? The Hamptons? Salty, sunny Martha’s Vineyard? Under a rock somewhere in the Chappaqua woods? Fate is turning in more than one uncomfortable way for the once-charmed couple of Boomerdom.

There is, of course, the freshly re-issued Jeffrey Epstein underage sex scandal, come ‘round again with a vengeance this time because there are fewer Clinton partisans left in the Department of Justice where the matter has festered for decades like a fistula slowly seeping its rot through the body politic. The vengeance emanates from the Clinton’s nemesis, the uppity Golden Golem of Greatness who dared to “steal” Hillary’s place in the Oval Office (and history). To put it plainly, Mr. Trump had enough of the two-year-plus persecution he endured from the Clinton-inspired Mueller investigation into the Clinton-propagated Russia Collusion flim-flam. And having patiently survived this audacious, seditious effrontery, is now out to squash the Clintons like a pair of palmetto bugs.

At this fraught hour of a frightful age, one turns to a metaphysical contemplation of these two Clintons, Hill-and-Bill, and just what it is that they represented in our national life these many years. Mainly, what I wonder is just how much power and influence they exerted behind-the-scenes in Washington since their exit from the White House in 2001. For example, starting with the most recent shenanigans, the curious composition of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel team, spiked with obvious Clinton insiders such as Andrew Weissmann, present at HRC’s aborted victory party on election night 2016, Jeannie Rhee, a lawyer for the Clinton Foundation, and several other former Obama-era DOJ staffers. How did that happen? How did Mr. Mueller get away with that?

One obvious answer: the media titans ignored it. This leads the casual observer to ask; how did it work that revered pillars of The News, like The New York Times, The Washington Post, NBC, CBS, and so many others became captives of the Clinton narrative? What is the reality there? Probably not so much that the Clinton’s actually control persons and agencies, but that they are figurehead monarchs of the bureaucratic monster called the Deep State; and that this Deep State has been doing everything possible to preserve its increasingly corrupt perquisites against the call to dismantle them — a.k.a. “draining the Swamp.”

Can there be any shred of doubt left in this land that if anyone “colluded” with Russians to interfere in the 2016 election it was the Clinton Campaign’s Fusion GPS disinformation unit, which assembled The Narrative, with the assistance of CIA Director John Brennan, and peddled it to the willfully credulous FBI led by James Comey and the news media. We won’t rehash any more of this excruciatingly complex criminal project, except to note that it is now unraveling with equally painful blowback to the people responsible, including Hillary Rodham Clinton who may be liable for a heap of felony charges in the matter.

All of that nasty business may redound to the various intrigues emanating from HRC’s years as Secretary of State, namely the fantastic hoovering up of hundreds of millions of dollars by the Clinton Foundation from foreign parties doing business with the State Department, including the Russian Federation. How did all that indecency slip through the cracks? Once again, the media ignored it because it would not advance their interests in gender and identity politics to investigate the avatar of the party promoting those crusades. And because the Obama Justice Department under Loretta Lynch deliberately looked the other way for similar reasons.

And now there is the Epstein matter, which threatens not only former president Bill Clinton, but a cosmos of political, financial, and entertainment “stars” in countless ugly incidents that involve a kind of personal corruption that has no political context but says an awful lot about the obliteration of moral and ethical boundaries by the people who ended up running things in this fretful moment of US history. President Clinton has already kicked off this debacle by lying to the media about the number of rides he took on Mr. Epstein’s notorious airplane.

I voted for Bill Clinton twice. When they came up from the backwater of Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1992, they seemed like the fresh, bright antidote to twelve years of fusty Reaganism with the GHW Bush moldy cherry-on-top. Governor Bill, so glib and charming. Tall and catnip to the ladies, too! And almost immediately he was in deep shit over that part of his act, but he wiggled through it all with the aid of his perky, stalwart wife and partner, who defended him sedulously on nationwide TV. (America had never even heard about her misadventures on the Watergate Committee, where, age 27, she gained a reputation for being less than honest.) And that was followed by the first instance of Hillary moneygrubbing when she turned a few thousand bucks into a six-figure bonanza almost overnight in a wired commodities trade.

After all that bother they mostly minded their manners in the White House until Bill got all sexed up by Miss Lewinsky, and they managed to slip through that fiasco without penalty. It was really in the years following — after they left the White House copping some historic GI furnishings, and got caught doing it — that they put together their fabulous empire of grift known as the Clinton Foundation, with its do-good cover act called the Clinton Global Initiative. Curiously now, we learn that Bill was pretending to be on various world-saving missions during many of those trips he took on the Epstein Travel Service plane. We’ll see how that pans out going forward.

When all is said and done, the official business of going forward with these various scandals and their unwindings may prove to be the most nauseating and destabilizing period in our nation’s history. Nemesis is rising.

    NEMESIS was the goddess of indignation against, and retribution for, evil deeds and undeserved good fortune. She was a personification of the resentment aroused in men by those who commited crimes with apparent impunity, or who had inordinate good fortune.
    Nemesis directed human affairs in such a way as to maintain equilibrium. Her name means she who distributes or deals out. Happiness and unhappiness were measured out by her, care being taken that happiness was not too frequent or too excessive. If this happened, Nemesis could bring about losses and suffering. As one who checked extravagant favours by Tykhe (Tyche) (Fortune), Nemesis was regarded as an avenging or punishing divinity.

        You know that is not what is going on. Perhaps you have wishful thinking going on. Chaos shall breed chaos and all will be ripped asunder. Only disparate parts will remain. A patchwork of nations. Insufficient energy remains to support any other equilibrium. Equilibrium requires energy for balance to be maintained.

        Perhaps you know someone who has written books about this. A land of ‘pickers’ in a nowhere geography of what was once America.

    • Neon Vincent July 12, 2019 at 10:47 am #

      As soon as I read the title of today’s essay, I thought of the Shriekback song “Nemesis,” which I consider my personal theme song. It mentions both prehistoric animals and parthenogenesis, which were subjects of my M.S. and Ph.D. research respectively, and is a cool song to boot. I have it playing in the background as I’m typing this.

      As for all the talk about the Clintons, especially Hillary, and sex, I’m reminded of what I wrote in Sarah Palin’s Naughty Monkey Shoes. Conservatives openly hate and fear Hillary, but I think they secretly lusted for her, too, much as liberals hated, feared, and lusted for Palin. I think both sides would be better off if they admitted their lusts.

      • K-Dog July 12, 2019 at 11:12 am #

        Lusting for Hillary should be listed in the ‘Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders book (DSM-5) as a serious affliction.

        I can see that pseudo-intellect abounds on this fools blog. Could you pontificate on why your leader feels the Clintons represent obliteration of moral decency, while giving our pussy-grabber-in-chief his moral seal of approval?

        • hmuller July 14, 2019 at 9:57 am #

          Locker room talk of pussy grabbing compared to actually raping Juanita Broderick. Yep, sounds like equivalency to me.

          • gonetohell July 14, 2019 at 7:40 pm #

            There are no degrees of moral decency. When electing the president of the United States we shouldn’t be searching for candidates with the smallest degree of moral bankruptcy. Even in that regard we have a president accused by 24 women of sexual assault or misconduct. Would you bet your own life he’s never inappropriately touched his own daughter? If you would you are a bigger fool than you appear.

      Did Nemesis have her hands as full of retribution then as she does today? Maybe her power is attenuated but maybe at least some mild pushback is warranted.

      Like for example to the Green New Deal scam? In a new scientific study released by Finnish & Japanese researchers, they find that

      During the last hundred years the temperature increased about 0.1°C because of carbon dioxide. The human contribution was about 0.01°C.

      Further,

      Because the anthropogenic portion in the increased carbon dioxide is less than 10 percent, we have practically no anthropogenic climate change,” the researchers concluded.

      • hmuller July 12, 2019 at 11:08 am #

        Tate, I saw that article and briefly thought about posting it here. But I’ve rattled that monkey cage before to no good end.

        The AGW crowd has the equivalent of a deeply held religious belief. It ties into their political ideology – the globalist doctrine of impoverishing humanity to save “mother earth”.

        They think their ideology is science based, but science is open to evidence and revision. AGW dogma is not.

        • K-Dog July 12, 2019 at 11:24 am #

          Others have a globalist doctrine of impoverishing humanity to rape “mother earth”. Using globalist was risky. You risked a dog coming along and pointing out how stupid that was.

          Sometimes an untrue statement.

          —-> science is open to evidence and revision. <—-

          Facts are facts. Facts are the subject matter of science. Only factual truth is allowed to modify science. 'Evidence' which is without the value of truth has no place in science.

        • GreenAlba July 12, 2019 at 12:00 pm #

          “The AGW crowd has the equivalent of a deeply held religious belief. It ties into their political ideology – the globalist doctrine of impoverishing humanity to save “mother earth”.”

          Where to start…

          I’ve already said that people who use the ‘religious belief’ accusation are generally religious themselves (so a bit touchy, as they should be, since extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence) and are generally just hitting back blindly. When you’ve got as much detailed evidence for your religious beliefs as climate science has for its conclusions, give us a call and we’ll let you call climate science a religious belief system. Or indeed call your own beliefs science.

          ‘Mother earth’ is going to be just fine for about 7.5 billion years or so, around which time Grandmother Sun will gobble her up without a second thought.

          In the meantime ‘she’ doesn’t give a flying er.. ‘duck’ about what happens on her surface or below it, or whether the dumbest intelligent species that’s ever existed makes actual choices that lead inevitably to its own extinction. If she had a sense of humour, she’d probably just shake her head and roll her eyes. But she’s a lump of rock, so we don’t need to be embarrassed by our uselessness on her account. But we should be embarrassed on our own.

          • hmuller July 12, 2019 at 12:31 pm #

            GA. My religious beliefs, if I had any, are irrelevant to the topic of AGW. Are you familiar with the term “red herring” as it relates to debate?

          • GreenAlba July 12, 2019 at 12:49 pm #

            I said ‘generally’, hm, so it wasn’t specifically about you. But the point still stands that the analogy is inappropriate, given that climate scientists, by their nature, produce research and evidence. Religious apologists produced apologetics, with no evidence. Again, by their nature.

          • GreenAlba July 12, 2019 at 12:50 pm #

            *produce*

      • GreenAlba July 12, 2019 at 11:12 am #

        Tate

        Any chance you could find the original source of that publication?

        In your linked article it says:

        ‘the just published study has found, a summary of which has been released in the journal Science Daily.

        But I find that:

        Science Daily is an American website that aggregates press releases and publishes lightly edited press releases (a practice called churnalism) about science, similar to Phys.org and EurekAlert!.

        “The site was founded by married couple Dan and Michele Hogan in 1995; Dan Hogan formerly worked in the public affairs department of Jackson Laboratory writing press releases.[4] The site makes money from selling advertisements.[4] As of 2010, the site said that it had grown “from a two-person operation to a full-fledged news business with worldwide contributors” but at the time, it was run out of the Hogans’ home, had no reporters, and only reprinted press releases.[4]”

        So, perhaps some serious source information about these findings would be useful?

        • K-Dog July 12, 2019 at 11:25 am #

          Good one. I was looking and could not find the source. They authors were making like cockroaches.

          • hmuller July 12, 2019 at 11:41 am #

            Calling those who challenge your belief system “cockroaches”. Yes, very scientific, very fact based, have a milkbone.

          • GreenAlba July 12, 2019 at 12:58 pm #

            It’s not a fabrication, Tate – the authors have a previous paper published by Sage Publications (2014) on the effects of clouds, but not within a scientific journal, as far as I can see, which suggests it wasn’t peer reviewed, although I don’t know.

            The current one would need to be considered along with peer assessment of their methodology and conclusions, but I don’t know why anyone would consider it fabricated.

          • Tate July 13, 2019 at 4:34 pm #

            Don’t try to be disingenuous with me. Your comment reeks of ‘janet.’

            I don’t care what my comment reeks of to you. You show your desperation.

            Which bit of it do you disagree with?

          • Tate July 13, 2019 at 9:57 pm #

            The fact that you pretend not to recognize that “lol” is virtually the same as “sarcasm”. No, I don’t believe that it would be literally attacked as a complete fabrication. That’s hyperbole.

          • GreenAlba July 14, 2019 at 5:31 am #

            “The fact that you pretend not to recognize that “lol” is virtually the same as “sarcasm”. ”

            I know perfectly well that it’s the same as sarcasm. What’s your point?

            It’s interesting, though, isn’t it, Tate, that you immediately take this study at face value, while you don’t accept tens of thousands of others.?

            What is it about the physics of this one that convinces you while the physics of all the others have failed to convince you?

            And would you agree that good science only becomes good science when the results are repeatable by other scientists? Otherwise it would just be the same as all the other studies that you reject out of hand, wouldn’t it?

          • Tate July 14, 2019 at 12:45 pm #

            What’s my point? My point, if it’s not perfectly obvious to you, is that you’re taking my comment at face value. You’re saying that I believe that those who are opposed to the conclusions in this study would attack it by claiming that it’s made out of whole cloth. No, I’m saying no such thing. But you knew that. In your desperation, you latch onto any little thing I say in order to find fault.

            As for me taking the study at face value, no I don’t take it at face value. Why do you assume I take it at face value? It’s pushback against the Green New Deal scam, which I do oppose. That’s all it is to me. I haven’t even read it.

            Any more than I’ve read the “tens of thousands of others” (according to you) studies. Have you? How many of those studies are meta-studies that simply piggyback on the work of others? It would be interesting to find out how much is original science. In any event, the ideal of “science” is one thing, but the way science is actually conducted is all too human, & therefore subject to the same biases & errors we all share, the herd instinct affecting scientists no less than the common man.

            I’m as prone as anyone else to favor the prevailing theory, by the way, that CO2 is building up & causing the atmosphere to warm. How can I not be, what with the ubiquitous photos & video of burning smokestacks, & teeming freeways? I mean, can’t you just see it happening in real time?

            But I resist that impulse, because I know that science is never “settled,” although it may reach a consensus for some long stretch of time. If this study throws a little sand in the gears of the headlong rush to madness, i.e. the Green New Deal, then I’m all for it.

            And in any event, even if it’s true that the earth is warming due to human activity, what do you propose be done? I know, I know, each of us should reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible & be like you & ride a bicycle or take public transport & live in a one-bedroom dwelling. Like Miss Grundy, your virtues are a shining beacon & give hope to us all (I hesitate to add “lol.”)

          • GreenAlba July 14, 2019 at 2:07 pm #

            I didn’t take your point at face value – it was a stupid point and sarcastic pointless points deserve the same back.

            ” It’s pushback against the Green New Deal scam, which I do oppose. That’s all it is to me. I haven’t even read it.”

            Then it’s not science, it’s politics.

            “I’m as prone as anyone else to favor the prevailing theory, by the way, that CO2 is building up & causing the atmosphere to warm. How can I not be, what with the ubiquitous photos & video of burning smokestacks, & teeming freeways? I mean, can’t you just see it happening in real time?”

            None of that proves AGW, just GW, which is where the science comes in. The science you claim is totally corrupted so they might as well all shut up shop and go home. Glad we got that sorted out.

            Your last paragraph is just your usual desperate fuckwittery.

      • peter m July 13, 2019 at 10:53 am #

        Ah yes, that study gets peddled about. I have read some of it but found one lie already glaring: That none other study had taken into account of the cloud cover influence when just a short look into google showed a study of exactly that in a study of Northern China, with a bit different conclusion: That the cloud cover had mitigating influence alright, but that rising temperature through increase atmospheric CO2 actually decreased cloud cover over time and thus the mitigation becomes less and less efficient.

        Of course studies countering the consensus by the majority can be useful to point out where likely mistakes modelling could have been made, but a couple of studies of a rather doubtful value does not in itself devalue the multitude of studies confirming overall temperature increase and human produced CO2 release by burning within a few years carbon that has been sequestered over millions of years.

        • Tate July 13, 2019 at 4:42 pm #

          But doesn’t this study say that the decrease in cloud cover is due to interstellar cosmic rays? And they are making the claim that there is only a 0.1% increase in CO2 & that of that 0.1% only 10% is man-made, or 0.01%, which is a negligible contribution through man-made causes.

          • GreenAlba July 13, 2019 at 7:14 pm #

            You’re assuming everything they have shown is correct. This is why we have peer review.

          • Tate July 13, 2019 at 10:01 pm #

            True. Some day reality will set us straight, I suppose. I’ve never said I absolutely don’t believe in AGW, just that I’m skeptical. But don’t call me a denier because I’m skeptical.

          • GreenAlba July 14, 2019 at 6:15 am #

            “Some day reality will set us straight, I suppose. ”

            So what aspects of ‘reality’ would specifically prove to you that GW is AGW? Do you not accept scientific observation as ‘reality’?

            And how long do we have to wait before you accept that we have wasted decades? Till the albedo effect of polar ice is removed? Till positive feedbacks like the permafrost and the ocean depths burping up their methane (26 times more ‘effective’ than CO2 as a greenhouse gas) in existential quantities lead to runaway climate change? When?

      More simply, Nemesis followed Hubris which is overweening pride & self satisfaction, especially when not due to ones integrity, effort or probity.
      Which would certainly apply to most of the characters in the current appalling tableau vivant.

      It is, it seems, our civilisation’s turn to experience the inrush of the savage and the unseen; our turn to be brought up short by contact with untamed reality. There is a fall coming. We live in an age in which familiar restraints are being kicked away, and foundations snatched from under us. After a quarter century of complacency, in which we were invited to believe in bubbles that would never burst, prices that would never fall, the end of history, the crude repackaging of the triumphalism of Conrad’s Victorian twilight – Hubris has been introduced to Nemesis. Now a familiar human story is being played out. It is the story of an empire corroding from within. It is the story of a people who believed, for a long time, that their actions did not have consequences. It is the story of how that people will cope with the crumbling of their own myth. It is our story.

    • hmuller July 12, 2019 at 10:32 am #

      Aside from the crime and corruption issues, Hillary was already falling apart physically in 2016. Did you see the video from SEP 11, 2016 as she collapsed and was carried into a van?

      There are a couple unusual theories – which I am not endorsing, but simply relaying.

      1) Hillary has “Kuru” a disease one gets by eating human brains – a side effect of those ritual, satanic, cannibal feasts she attends.

      2) Hillary has a body double (possibly a clone). The supporting evidence is too complex and lengthy to present here, but if interested you can google “hillary body double”

      • GreenAlba July 12, 2019 at 10:42 am #

          2) And, there are great deals on bulk tinfoil at Costco. 3 packs, cheap.

            Yes, I see Isikoff, now at Yahoo News, formerly at NBC and Newsweek, is putting out that story. Believe what you like. But I’ve witnessed the MSM lie so often to run cover for the deep state players, I won’t take their word for anything.

          GA, just because I’m a proud, tin-foil hat, conspiracy theorist doesn’t mean I’ve lost my sense of humor. I know the great majority of conspiracy theories are meadow muffins; but they do offer some amusement. E.g. Angela Merkel is Hitler’s daughter; Putin is a team of clones, the earth is hollow, the earth is flat, the Titanic was sunk to eliminate a few powerful opponents of the Federal Reserve (Yes, the iceberg was in on it). My world is a chuckle a minute.

        I have heard that several of our leaders are robotic cyborgs. The first one was JEB!. He was run over by a car about eight years ago but no one noticed. So, they brought in a robot of him from North Korea. They smuggled it through Cuba to Florida.
        Next was Hillary. Her battery was giving her trouble in 2016. The CIA brought in a Trump replacement when his campaign began to get traction. It immediately went rogue. Now, they are not sure if it Trump or robot Trump in office. Either way it’s pretty scary.
        This info comes out of Rick’s Cafe American in Casablanca, Morocco. I’m told good intelligence has been coming out of ther since World War Two.

        • hmuller July 12, 2019 at 11:54 am #

            Just curious 🙂

          • Janos Skorenzy July 12, 2019 at 1:43 pm #

            Good, Alba. A hole is just a hole after all. In one stroke, you display the whole Liberal Mentality and Ethos – an example often being more instructive than a definition. And since all “holes” are just the same, and anyone who says differently is a hater, there are no genders, not really. “Women” are just front holes.

            And all legislation must be geared towards “making it so” since Marx said, the goal is not to understand the world, but to change it. But wouldn’t that be an admission that the first premise is wrong? In any case, Trangression is the Sacrament of the Day and the weirder the better is the metric of human evaluation. Thus “cis” is a pejorative – no matter what the new Priesthood says or pretends. Their (your) whole ethos affirms the fact.

          • GreenAlba July 12, 2019 at 4:08 pm #

            Janos

            Do you miss the point for a living or is it just an unfortunate hazard?

            If I wasn’t babysitting and trying to read tiny print on my phone I’d expand but it’s not worth getting RSI for. Try rereading and not missing out the adjectives, dear.

          • GreenAlba July 12, 2019 at 6:18 pm #

            OK, I’m back from babysitting.

            “And since all “holes” are just the same, and anyone who says differently is a hater, there are no genders, not really. “Women” are just front holes.”

            That’s spectacularly nonsensical even for you, Janos.

            There are genders. There are women. There are men.

            Men and women have two primary orifices in common and have another that men don’t have.

            Some people get their knickers in a twist when gay men do two things that heterosexual men also do, and in very roughly the same proportions these days. There is only one thing that gay men can’t do and that’s the one that makes babies.

            But since no normally born gay men can make babies, we can’t blame those gay men for the birth of other normally born gay men, who seem to be entirely the issue of heterosexual men and women as they have been since the beginning of time. Annoying but true. Believers can blame God if they wish to – most of the rest of us just accept that anomalies exist in nature.

            But the two main things that heterosexual men and gay men both do some people only get exercised about if gay men do them. And the one that gay women also do, heterosexual men don’t just not mind about, on the whole, but they’ll switch on their computers to watch very intently when their wives go out.

            That’s irrational. And nothing whatever to do with one’s opinion on the existence of either genders or women, both of which exist, in my very humble opinion. Not everyone feels they fit them exactly, it would seem, but they do exist.

          • hmuller July 12, 2019 at 7:36 pm #

            That was a very confusing post, GA. Can you demonstrate what you mean with anatomically correct hand puppets?

            Actually, many gay men have fathered children – in the bottle (via sperm bank) or directly on tap. After a few drinks, a man may look for any port in a storm – man, woman, farm animal. But you already knew what swine they are.

            Human sexuality is far more fluid than people who pin labels may realize or admit. Look at prisons, for crying out loud! Most of those guys will vehemently deny being “faggots”, but their actions ….well, you can fill in the rest.

          • GreenAlba July 13, 2019 at 6:20 am #

            You’re right, hm, gay men (and certainly bisexual men) do father children. I wrote that in rather a hurry after spending several hours with a seven-year-old and was primarily aiming at responding to Janos’ mad rant. That bit wasn’t even necessary to my main point so I should have left it out.

            The fact remains that all the gay men and women I know and those that most people know were produced by heterosexual parents.

            I think you’re bright enough to work your way through the confusing anatomy, which was an attempt not to frighten the pearl clutchers, so I’ll leave that one with you or for another time.

            “Human sexuality is far more fluid than people who pin labels may realize or admit.”

            And here was I trying not to offend the ultra-conservatives, who don’t recognise or approve of ‘fluidity’, and keep things simple and inoffensive for them! But noted – it’s OK if a Conservative says it. That’s good to know 🙂 .

          • hmuller July 13, 2019 at 7:58 am #

            GA, I said human sexuality is fluid. I didn’t say fluidity is good. If someone wants to be a good Christian, it involves a lot of self control – largely due to Paul who was very “puritan” about human sexuality. He basically wanted everyone to never have sex, but he tolerated it within marriage.

          • GreenAlba July 13, 2019 at 11:20 am #

            Let’s call it a design fault, hm. If there were a designer, one would know where to place the blame.

            Or we could accept that it just evolved and that the current iteration retains some features of the original which had a point (or, more accurately, an evolutionary advantage) in earlier times, but which are somewhat dysfunctional now that the imperatives of that time no longer apply to this one.

            Which would suggest no designer. 🙂

            But we are still free to choose to behave in a way that facilitates or follows the values we currently find valuable, which we may share whether or not we think there is a designer.

          • Janos Skorenzy July 13, 2019 at 12:54 pm #

            And thus, since one act produces babies, that act is FAR more valuable to Society than all the others and such couples are to be lauded and enabled, while the others are to be ignored, politely or otherwise.

            Thank you, Alba. Together we got to the Truth. You served, as you often do, as my foil. But in that sense, you were a great help, this time at least. You laid it all out, and I just put the Cap Stone on top.

          • GreenAlba July 13, 2019 at 7:20 pm #

            “And thus, since one act produces babies, that act is FAR more valuable to Society than all the others and such couples are to be lauded and enabled, while the others are to be ignored, politely or otherwise.”

            Oh, the sophistication of your thought – I mean it’s just overwhelming. 🙂

            It’s only valuable if you need lots more babies. Those who do other things, or engage in that act, as most do, without the possibility of babies, help to keep the population under control.

            Where they don’t, there are massive problems and many of them head your way, which you don’t seem to like.

            What people do behind closed doors is none of your business if it’s consensual and they’re adults. Personally, I prefer not to know.

          • hmuller July 14, 2019 at 9:42 am #

    JHK, for saying the same things you are now saying I’ve been reviled as a “conspiracy theorist”. Welcome to the club.

    I’ve noticed that the people who label others as paranoid conspiracy theorists have no ideas or alternate theories to explain the facts. They simply apply derogatory labels as the MSM has programmed them to do.

    For them name calling has replaced reasoned debate. We are taught that you can always win an argument and shut someone up by calling them racist, anti-semitic, zenophobe, homophobe, etc. Thanks for not being afraid to speak the truth.

    • Walter B July 12, 2019 at 10:29 am #

      It is my belief that those that toss the “conspiracy theorist” title about as a slur are simply those people that cannot live comfortably knowing that they are being manipulated, coerced, or otherwise connived into doing the will of a superior entity. These folk have to convince themselves that they are totally free of influence and simply choose to get the newest Dinglebox the day it comes out, or actually want to max out their credit cards because that is what they choose to do and really want.

      If that is what it takes to keep them from perpetrating acts of violence against a society and an economy that uses them like so much toilet paper, so be it. I take pride in being a conspiracy theorist and I conspire pretty much constantly with others to achieve the desired effects. It is how good fights evil and visa versa.

        Well put, Walter! As I approach the twilight of my life (I’m 64) I can see more clearly how used, manipulated, and brainwashed I was; and still am. “They” have their hands into almost everything, certainly popular culture, entertainment, and the media. It’s like we live in on a prison planet, and we’re fed so much “medication” we don’t know it.

        You’d like the explanation in the book Bullshit Jobs, Walter. He cites the concern from the Depression that, due to automation, work would disappear. Of course that didn’t happen… or did it?

        Graeber, the authors, takes you through a whirlwind of bullshit Jobs, citing evidence given by workers themselves that 37% of workers believe their job contributes nothing of value. Since the currently employment ratio in the USA is about 61%, that means that 39% of the population isn’t working, and 22.6% of the population is working at self-described bullshit jobs. In sum, there’s real work for only 38.4% of the population, and that share will drop as jobs with real social value (truckdriver, e.g.) get replaced by robots and algorithms.

        Definitely worth a read.

        • Tate July 12, 2019 at 3:37 pm #

          Most of those bullshit jobs are in government or corporate government compliance positions, such as most of the HR staff.

          • DrTomSchmidt July 13, 2019 at 11:37 am #

            That’s what I used to think. But there are plenty of bullshit jobs outside government. He makes the point that the bullshitization Of academics is actually WORSE in private universities than in public ones. From my experience of both, this is manifestly true, for whatever has driven the dynamic.

            You’d be interested to read his comments on banking. While nominally private, it’s really a rentiér on government’s teat.

            He’s a red diaper baby and claims to be an anarchist. Worth a read.

          • Tate July 13, 2019 at 4:51 pm #

            Private vs. public universities is understandable. It’s because of the student loan scam which affects private no less than public universities.

            The student loan scam fuels the growth in admin positions within academia. The proliferation of sub-deans with titles longer than their names is the essence of bullshit jobs.

            Taking the broadest view, then, it would appear that cheap money growth is the wellspring of bullshit jobs.

      • DrTomSchmidt July 12, 2019 at 1:01 pm #

        Oh, forgot to add: he cites Orwell who mentions the fear of the elites is the fear of the mob, and that the only way to keep the mob from revolting is keeping them slaving away at jobs for so long that they haven’t the time or energy to revolt. In other words, keeping them from perpetrating acts of violence.

        • BornToKillPeace July 12, 2019 at 5:46 pm #

          How many people do we all know and often love, whom often bitch and moan about their jobs every chance they can get, then go on blowing their money on the dumbest of things, that if not bought could allow them to reduce their investment in said work. Then these jokersters go on about how much harder they work at said job than anyone else (most often not true).

          • DrTomSchmidt July 13, 2019 at 11:41 am #

            A lot is personal attitude. Gary North once talked about upper and lower class as future orientation. The woman scrubbing floors so her child can go to school and live a better life is upper class; the trust fund baby spending money and time on frivolities is lower class.

            Of course, with fiat money we’ve made it pretty hard for the lower classes to accumulate secure wealth. If your money is going to be inflated away or stolen by government edict, you might as well spend it on “the dumbest of things,” rather than having it stolen.

          • Tate July 13, 2019 at 5:12 pm #

            Low time preference is upper class; high time preference is lower class. It’s a useful distinction. But there are floor-scrubbers who have high time preference & trust fund babies who have low time preference as well. Depending on one’s position in ideological space, one relies on different sets of stereotypes.

    • gregor July 12, 2019 at 10:48 am #

      Yes, being called a ‘conspiracy theorist’ is all too common for anyone thinking to upset the current narrative. I found the information below to be helpful in combating that label. It’s from the ‘guns and butter’ site hosted by SoundCloud. A 911 firefighter recounts his experiences since telling his story about the events of that day, and discuses ‘ad hominem’ attacks and what to do when labeling happens to you.

      He says:

      “Ad Hominem Attack is a logical fallacy that automatically discredits the disseminator of information at question, based on a preconceived bias. That is the exact thing that is done when we allow ourselves to be labeled and debated as conspiracy theorists in regard to 911 issues. We cannot open a clear and honest discussion on the topic, when we base the context of that discussion with the conspiracy label. Ad Hominem Attacks are everywhere; on the news, on the internet, in the papers. You hear it when Ann Coulter speaks about liberals, or Sean Hannity calls you crazy before he interviews you. It’s the perfect method to create an automatic bias. It’s a way to sway an argument to one side, making the other side seem either impotent or irrelevant before a word is even spoken.

      The second logical fallacy supposes that because of true or reported credentials that the expert making the argument and disseminating accepted information is automatically correct. Peoples faith in the governments official information, because it supports our president or country is an example of this second logical fallacy.

      If we are to be taken seriously and we are to be respect in our search for the truth we cannot allow ourselves to fall prey to either one of these logical fallacies.”

      “We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men – not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate, and to defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular”
      Edward R. Murrow

      • Tate July 12, 2019 at 11:08 am #

        So true. For example, skeptics of AGW are called “deniers.” And those stubborn ‘deniers’ are labeled very bad people by the Good-thinkers because they have the effrontery to demur against the consensus of the so-called ‘5000 climate experts’ who have proclaimed under the supervision of the IPCC the coming climate Apocalypse being human-induced.

        But now there’s a new study which shatters the consensus view:

        zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-11/scientists-finland-japan-man-made-climate-change-doesnt-exist-practice

        • GreenAlba July 12, 2019 at 11:24 am #

          “So true. For example, skeptics of AGW are called “deniers.” ”

          No they are not. Sceptic are sceptics. Scientists are sceptics, by inclination and conviction. It is in the nature a scientic enquiry that the enquirer must be sceptical.

          Deniers are defined as those who remain in denial no matter what evidence is presented to them because denialism is not skepticism.

          It is suggested that the way to identify a denier is to ask them what evidence would convince them. If they can’t come up with the details of the evidence that would convince them, they are likely to be a denier. If they tell you exactly what evidence would convince them and that evidence does not (or not yet) exist, then they may yet qualify as a sceptic.

            Thank you, hm. I wasn’t clear what ‘some of the power structure meant’ and don’t really thing the nutty Austrian professor really fits the bill or Mark Hertsgaard, who is just a journalist of some sort.

            But yes, some of it looks inappropriate.

            However, I would have no objections whatever if ExxonMobil were indicted for some suitable offence relating to the revelations that they hid the findings of their own climate scientists back in the 80s and then spent millions on deliberate denial and obfuscation, which helped to bring us to the current situation where our only options are mitigation of the very worst scenarios (but no guarantee that we’ll even attempt that). I’m not sure what they should be hauled in front of the court for in legal terms, but they did do something heinous when they themselves were part of the de facto power structure.

          • Tate July 14, 2019 at 4:08 pm #

            ExxonMobil had climate scientists working for them back in the 1980s? That’s surpassing strange. Why would an oil & gas exploration & development company have “climate scientists” on their payroll in the 1980s, let alone that the company suppressed the findings of these putative scientists? What findings did they suppress exactly? And was it really the findings of “climate scientists?”

            Do you have sources you can cite for this astonishing tidbit? One that, frankly, I’ve never heard before.

    Perfect Jim, perfect. The ill-advised actions of scorned HRC to destroy DJT have run out of steam, fallen short of the objective, and she/they are left holding a leaky bag containing a bloody mess. Just as the Wehrmacht was destroyed at the Gates of Stalingrad then sent fleeing for their lives with Russian bears snapping at their heels, so too does the failed Clinton coup army now flee the hot pursuit that shall probably devour them.

    If a movement is going to crush its opposition, especially one that it situated on higher ground, and fails after giving it all they’ve got, the ensuing counteroffensive is hard to stop.

    Why even here in our own little Township, when our entrenched incumbent, career politicians gave it their all trying to thrown us out of office last year and failed, our ensuing counter attack destroyed them in the primary and paved the way for a new administration.

    The rule that seems to always apply in these types of warfare is that all out attack had better be totally successful or the attackers must be prepared to fall on their own swords if they are not. What does not kill us makes us stronger!

          Ol’ Scratch, Walter B

          My hope is that the conspiracists cannot interfere with this Epstein situation. You can bet the PTB are desperately trying to put a lid on this as fast as possible. The reason is obvious, THEY are the group that is behind the whole mess associated with the Southern Border. We have a situation here that can uncover the rotten truth about the USA, that the rotten underbelly of this country’s power structure is so repugnant to the average American that a huge upwelling of ill will will be directed at the perpetrators.

          I dream about what could have involved Jeffrey Epstein. How many rotten souls could be clobbered by the expanding cesspool.

          Deep Staters, Globalists, cartels, billionaires and especially the prime enabler, the MSM are going to be working to get this shut up ASAP. It is easy to see why the press is so corrupt in this whole mess, they are literally owned by the conspiratorial element.

          Remember Estulin? One of his premises was that the Deep State and their collusion with the Globalists was using the wealth of the US acquired with drugs and trafficking to finance the interest payments keeping the global financial situation afloat.

          The potential impact of Jeffrey Epstein’s exposure as a probable soldier of this whole ginormous group is huge, huge, huge.

          I have mixed feelings, I would like to see the whole rotten mess blown sky high. The impact of how wide this could spread into the rot could run us right into the global collapse we at CFN like to predict.

          I wonder if Epstein makes it to his trial?

          • Ol' Scratch July 12, 2019 at 12:14 pm #

            Yep. Still making my way through Estulin’s book. It’s so spot on true and depressing that I can only take it in small bites.

            Does Jeffery Epstein connect all the dots between the politicians, the media, Hollywood and dear I say Mossad?

            During the 2016 election, I have to say that Pizza-Gate was a divider, even if there was an ounce of truth to it. People who spoke of it were considered crack pots, tinfoil wearing, foam spewing nut cases, but how far off were they?

            NLH,

            The version of Pizza Gate pushed by the MSM, was an MSM creation.

            In reality, Pizzagate was nothing more than evidence that James Alefantis and the Podesta’s were pedos.

            All of the circumstantial evidence was available in the hacked Podesta mail at Wikileaks and various online social media accounts from Alefantis and other sketchy folk who were part of a rather sick group of individuals. Much of it was scrubbed around the time Megan Kelly interviewed Alefantis.

            The pedo murals at Comet were also very real. I saw them back when I used to play rock shows there. Everyone was creeped out by them.

            The basement sex dungeon at Comet was a media construction created to deflect from some nasty truths.

            The basement sex dungeon wasn’t at the Comet Pizza location, but at another location that Alefantis owned a block away, identified as some sort of “museum” on Google maps. This is from my recollection of the events surrounding the Comet Pizza story. I stopped following the story, as I knew it would probably be successfully suppressed.

            Are there Epstein connections to Alefantis?

      Yes, the Clintons are easy to dislike. While not caring about them, I am concerned that the Democratic Party, having fallen under Hillary’s spell, is now apparently on a course of self destruction that will likely manifest as a party split: the fanatical progressives, and other Democrats who would prefer to return more to the political center.

      This will cast (what is left of) the two party system into chaos. We’ve all seen the Repubs can also be buffoons, and when the party system worked as intended, each party acted as a watchdog and moderated the behavior of the other. Of late, the Uniparty tendency suffocated those checks and balances, which is why the seniors of both parties reacted with undisguised dismay when the “outsider” Donald Trump won the 2016 election.

      All this would probably be managed (if not elegantly) in more normal times, but along with the social / financial / economic / infrastructure problems that loom ever larger … yes, it is going to be The Perfect Storm.

The feud between Pelosi and AOC will be ongoing and is emblematic of what is to come. AOC is an ignorant upstart? But Pelosi is a “racist” – and that trumps everything.

They are a relatively crude form of cookie, certainly not haute cuisine, but I suppose they are okay, since I do not recall not liking them. Nowadays, with concerns over my diminishing metabolism, I would probably eschew eating them because of their (likely) high simple carbohydrate content.

    Curiosities –

    At age 20, Jeffrey Epstein was hired to teach maths & physics to teen-age girls & boys, at Manhattan’s Dalton School for 1973-75 … The headmaster who hired Epstein, was Donald Barr (1921-2004), father of Donald Trump’s current Attorney General William Barr (born 1950) … William Barr at that time working for the CIA, 1973-77, & gong to law school at night … Barr later working for the Kirkland & Ellis law firm … whose clients included Jeffrey Epstein

    Prosecuting Epstein in New York, is US Assistant Attorney Maurene Comey, daughter of scandal-tainted former FBI Director and Hillary Clinton partisan James Comey, who had been fired by Donald Trump

    In 1988 Epstein filed a financial statement giving his net worth as only US $20 million … he is a billionaire now? How? His fortune is a black box ever since Epstein left Bear Stearns in 1981 to start his own firm

    The Epstein money source seems to be Leslie H. ‘Les’ Wexner (born 1937), billionaire founder of retail chains including The Limited and the chief executive of the company that owns Victoria’s Secret … Wexner was named in the 1990s by the Wall Street Journal, as lead in a group of about 20 ultra-pro-Israel Jewish billionaires the ‘Mega Group’

    Wexner bought the Manhattan mansion in which Epstein now lives, which police raided the other day … it was showing as still belonging to Wexner’s trust even after Epstein said he bought it

    Alex Acosta, now Trump’s cabinet Labor Secretary & the US federal prosecutor who in 2008, granted Jeffrey Epstein his ‘sweet deal’ for a light sentence despite horrendous under-age sex trafficking charges – Claims he was ordered to go easy on Epstein to benefit ‘intelligence’ agencies, un-named

    Epstein’s longtime ‘best friend’ who allegedly helped him procure underage girls, is Ghislaine Maxwell … daughter of ‘Israeli super-spy’ Robert Maxwell

    People are speculating Les Wexner, financed & created ‘Epstein the billionaire’ and the whole ‘underage girls’ scheme, in order to ‘honeypot blackmail’ poiticians who were filmed by Epstein residence cameras

    Daily Beast reports an early 1990s party with about ’28 girls’ and only two major rich guy attendees – Trump & Epstein

    Seems Epstein’s once-lawyer, Alan Dershowtiz, sabotaged him, Dersh going to court to demand unsealing Epstein files, Dersh said to ‘exonerate himself’ … Dersh won that on 2 July, Epstein arrested 4 days later

    The ‘raid on Epstein’s home’ this week was weird … police ‘breaking down the door’? That 21,000 square foot palace has full-time, 24 / 7 live-in servants, who surely would have answered the door for the police when they rang the bell … and then we saw ‘police agents’ in grubby civilian clothes taking out cheap black rubbish bags … in the most high-profile ‘crime case’ in America?

      Jeffrey Epstein was born January 20, 1953 – the day Eisenhower took office, although I’m not blaming him.

      But yes, there are a lot of curious facts surrounding this case – the Israeli/Mossad connection, the blackmail issue, all those celebrities vacationing on his island. A few months ago they were pouring concrete to fill in underground chambers and tunnels at his Caribbean estate. Why?

    Let’s also not forget that Hillary Clinton started her war against the Christian America as early as Spring of 1993, in Waco, Texas.

    It appears that she, as the First Lady, was closely involved in coordination the FBI actions there, which lead to this Massacre of the Innocents.

    • mike d July 12, 2019 at 10:53 am #

      Yes, but also don’t forget that the initial planning phase of the Waco raid started under the Bush Sr. administration. And of course it was on Bush’s watch that Randy Weaver’s family was militarily attacked with both his wife and boy murdered in cold blood.

    • zekesdad July 12, 2019 at 11:02 am #

      They weren’t all innocents. Don’t forget the FBI or ATF agents murdered there in the process of serving warrants. And please don’t run into the weeds about the legality or illegality of David Koresh’s right to bear arms. The point is, law enforcement people were murdered. Koresh could have fought them in court, but chose not to.

      • mike d July 12, 2019 at 11:11 am #

        Well you are a willing ignoramus because you don’t know the facts. This raid on Koresh was because the ATF desperately needed a reason to literally keep existing. Before congress at that time was a proposal to get rid of the ATF and roll those duties up into the FBI or another Federal Agency. Many Republicans were even for this. Also they needed an “assault weapons” ban in order to justify their existence. After Waco they got it. With just enough Repubs to go along.

        David Koresh was not a threat. He had a good working relationship with the Sheriff of McClellan County. The Sheriff said more than once that if they had let him go with them to serve the warrant peacefully that there wouldn’t have been a shoot out. From the beginning the ATF and FBI planned this as a military operation. They shot first. That’s why they made goddamn sure those front doors were destroyed. It was planned for show and I guarantee you the sociopaths who planned the operation were HOPING agents would get killed. It would play to their agenda much better.

        Those agents were not murdered. They were killed while trying to murder people. They were shot in self defense.

    Not a separate “system”, but the system we have definitely operates differently for some people. I don’t think money is the prime determinant for that different treatment, but connections to the Deep State may be (I’m not crazy enough to say money does not matter).

    • JohnAZ July 12, 2019 at 11:36 am #

      The Deep State is the source of the judges forming the basis of the judicial system, just like the basis for our DOJ the core of the intelligence group.

    >>> FBI Director and Hillary Clinton partisan James Comey”

    Do you really stand by this statement? I find it very hard to believe that Comey was a Hillary partisan. No doubt he loathed Trump, but to think this lifelong Republican… well, it seems unlikely, at best.

    “James Comey… makes no secret of the disdain in which the former FBI director holds the president who fired him. Comey compares President Trump to a mob boss, calling him a liar living in a “cocoon of alternative reality” and a man who is “unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values.”

    HOWEVER

    “In July of 2016, Comey held a press conference excoriating Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for her handling of classified information, but announcing his decision to decline to prosecute her, said her actions were careless but inadvertent. Then, on October 28, 2016, days before the presidential election, Comey wrote a letter to Congress announcing publicly that the case was being reopened, a decision that experts have argued likely cost Clinton the election. At the same time that Comey was publicly discussing a federal investigation of Clinton, the FBI was investigating whether Trump’s campaign was aiding a Russian influence operation aimed at putting the real-estate mogul in office. Comey kept the latter secret. The investigation into Clinton found nothing new—the inquiry into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia is ongoing and has already led to guilty pleas from several former Trump campaign officials.”

    “During the week of October 24, 2016, Hillary Clinton was decisively ahead of Donald Trump in many polls and, more importantly, in the battleground states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Then FBI Director James Comey sent his infamous letter to Congress on October 28, saying the bureau was investigating additional emails that may have been relevant to the Hillary Clinton email case. In The Unmaking of the President 2016, attorney Lanny J. Davis shows how Comey’s misguided announcement—just eleven days before the election—swung a significant number of voters away from Clinton, winning Trump an Electoral College victory—and the presidency.”

    • FincaInTheMountains July 12, 2019 at 11:03 am #

      Comey’s misguided announcement—just eleven days before the election

      I hate to find out what happened to the FBI and NY Police agents who forced Comey to reopen Hillary’s illegal server investigation 10 days before the election after they found the entire Hillary stuff on Huma Abedin’s husband laptop entertaining with teenagers – just to be closed again a few days later.

        Indeed, it was a great day for those who wanted to see the USA in another civil war, albeit a cold one. Who benefits from a heightened and new US civil war?

        Well, extremists on both sides of the political spectrum have built-up so much hate and venom, that they would be candidates to include under the heading, “Those Who Love US Civil War.” Vengeance and tribalism, are strong, strong motivators.

        Certain foreign nationals would find it helpful if their arch nemesis were to fortuitously stumble into a civil war, even a cold civil war. What could be better? Now, whom might fit the bill here…?

    And then we have that little matter of Janet Reno’s tank and gas assault at Waco, resulting in many dead children.

    “Can there be any shred of doubt left in this land that if anyone “colluded” with Russians to interfere in the 2016 election it was the Clinton Campaign’s Fusion GPS disinformation unit…”

    There is more than a shred – what’s left still looks like a mountain of the stuff. Or maybe I just have the bad luck to keep stumbling into pockets of True Believers, who are, by definition, immune to critical thinking. In any event, the narrative lives on.

    Hillary and Bill are the fuhrer’s of the mighty Deep State and couldn’t manage to beat GGG when she won the popular vote by 3,000,000? The full power of the Deep State, lead by Hillary, whom the Republicans have never been able to even lay a glove on, couldn’t have GGG done away with by some means or another? These are the same folks that pulled-off the 9-11 Twin Tower job? Really? I mean … REALLY?

    So tell me, are they (Billary) all powerful, or are they not? Which is it?It would seem many on this blog want it BOTH ways.

    Might it be that the white, uneducated, poor working class Americans (with valid grievances) in Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan decided, for whatever inexplicable reason, that Trumpster (jet setting, billionaire, loudmouth, reality tv star) was their man and they, along with Russian social media help, gave us the fluke of history known as GGG?

    It seems like a plausible explanation for this inexplicable situation the USA now finds itself in.

    So thanks a bunch to the rubes (and Reds) who gave us the worst president in American history, barr none. Yes, that AG reference was intended.

    • mike d July 12, 2019 at 11:38 am #

      No Billary isn’t all powerful. They were very powerful, but still had vulnerabilities. One was Hillary’s arrogance. I’ve read several accounts that during the final months Bill was furious that the Hillary team was ignoring Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and even Pennsylvania. He sensed the trouble brewing and saw that Trump was going to those states a lot. I read that in one instance he was talking to either her or her campaign manager while on a balcony of some Hotel when he got so mad he threw his cellphone off the building. Of course I’m sure one of his lackeys quickly retrieved that phone. Can you imagine what might have been on it? Lol…

      Anyway, Hillary arrogantly thought that she had the above named states wrapped up. She thought that there were going to be enough urban and suburban educated voters to give her those states without having to “beg the deplorables” for their votes.

      Of course she was wrong. (Plus not as many suburban educated women voted for her as she was counting on).

      JDHINES that 3 million in just California alone includes now at last estimate 1.5 million illegal alien votes.
      You keep harping that number but I would suggest Hillary lost the electoral college and if every vote was properly accounted for and everyone was forced to prove they had the right to vote and only vote once Hillary also lost the popular vote.

      Which is exactly why the Democrats fight any thought of making people use the real id to vote.

      • jdhines July 12, 2019 at 12:20 pm #

        I cannot agree with you on that supposition benr, as there is no reliable evidence that illegal aliens are voting in mass. Why would they risk arrest and deportation by going to the polls? It’s not what illegal do.

        The whole issue with voter ID, is that it suppresses the votes of poor, minorities. That IS proven. Same situation with the Census citizenship question, to suppress voters in regards to Republican gerrymandering. That is why, even the conservative US Supreme Court could not allow the question to remain, even though they would like to. It is too blatant, even for them.

        • hmuller July 12, 2019 at 1:24 pm #

          I agree, no one can prove Trump got more popular votes than Hillary. We can only speculate. In any case the issue is irrelevant at this point.

          The electoral college vote matters. And if there’s ever a Democratic candidate who loses the popular vote, but wins the electoral, you would agree it’s a fair and just system.

          If the census takers can ask “how many guns in your house”; they should be able to ask about citizenship. Personally, I wish they would ask neither. Just ask how many people live here, that’s all they need to know. They should stop at that.

          And why would asking for proper ID’s scare away a higher number of minorities from voting? Because they have outstanding arrest warrants, maybe? Do you actually think voting anonymously is a fair method? What’s to stop voting in 10 different precincts if no ID is ever required anywhere?

          • jdhines July 12, 2019 at 3:23 pm #

            I don’t care how we vote as long as the vote is fair and not controlled by politicos attempting to “stack the deck,” whether Left or Right. With the way the congressional districts are drawn now, you have one party getting a majority of the votes, but ends up with a distinct MINORITY of seats in the legislature. Is that how you want the country governed?

            Also, I’m not too fond of the sparsely populated states deciding what is “right” for the entire country.

          • hmuller July 12, 2019 at 4:22 pm #

            You didn’t explain why you think people are entitled to vote with no ID. Neither did you address the multiple voting abuses such a practice would allow.

            I wasn’t aware that congressional districts across the country have been gerrymandered to favor Republicans. How did they pull that off in states with Democrat majority legislatures and governors?

            As for your objecting to sparsely populated states having a slight over-representation in the electoral college, that’s the way it’s always been. We were created as a nation of sovereign states, not the centralized Orwellian state we’ve become by too much power in too few hands.

            And personally, I think farmers and ranchers make better voting decisions than the criminal and welfare masses of the big cities, as embodied by AOC..

        • Janos Skorenzy July 12, 2019 at 7:21 pm #

            >>> “Is your assertion that these folks should be on welfare instead?”

            John, Not at all. My assertion is that we shouldn’t claim the economy is doing so great for all when it is doing great for maybe only the top 20% of the population. The other 80% are basically treading water.

            I myself am quite happy with the stock market and my stock options, in fact, I hope it keeps going as it has, but the guys working out in the heat, at 7-11, WalMart, etc. don’t really have that much in the marker, but I may be wrong.

          Do you ever not make an excuse for why you hate Trump?
          Most of your arguments are specious at best.
          What is wrong with showing valid ID to vote and prove you are who you say you are?
          What is more important than protecting the voting system from fraud?
          In California illegal aliens are getting drivers licenses they are not afraid of getting deported or in trouble!
          There are to many of them to put it bluntly and when they get the id they have to uncheck the register to vote block so they get singed up to vote with zero effort on their part.

      This stuff is painful to read.

        NIghtowl, I just saw your response to a comment of mine on the last thread.

        You say your wife and a friend of hers, a clinical psychologist, both have first-hand evidence of ritual satanic abuse in Germany. Would you mind doing me a favour and checking with your wife and friend that they actually do have first-hand experience and are not merely reporting what they have heard. RSA does not exist. It is an insane belief.

        In the meantime have a look at this. It is not RSA (or is it?) but close enough to make the point.

        richardwebster.net/cleared.html

        Extract:

        Gradually police and social workers collected allegations from numerous children, four of whom would eventually join Sharon and Tracy to form the basis of the criminal prosecution.

        The allegations against Reed and Lillie were nearly all based on fragmentary remarks made by children who had been anxiously questioned by their parents. The children had then been interviewed by social workers and police officers who were evidently committed from the outset to the idea that abuse had taken place. When the children said something that could be construed as evidence of sexual abuse, they were praised, rewarded and enthusiastically believed; when they said that nobody had hurt them, or proclaimed the innocence either of Reed or Lillie, they were disbelieved or ignored.

        In the atmosphere of anxiety which had been generated by the Jason Dabbs affair and in an attempt to protect its own reputation, Newcastle social services insisted on holding disciplinary hearings in advance of the trial. Without access to any of the vital documents (including the video interviews) they relied on second- and third-hand hearsay evidence provided by social workers. Both nursery nurses were found guilty and dismissed.

        Now, demonised as members of a sinister paedophile ring who abused children behind black doors, Reed and Lillie became the evil protagonists in a mythology whose grip became stronger as it grew more fantastic, commanding belief not only from parents but from social workers, local councillors, paediatricians and therapists.

        The myth was so powerful it survived the criminal case. Having examined Tracy’s video evidence in detail, Mr Justice Holland had concluded that the evidence was so weak that it should not even be put before a jury. When the not-guilty verdicts were announced a near-riot took place in the courtroom, with cries from the parents of ‘Hang them!’. That same day, 14 July 1994, Tony Flynn, acting leader of Newcastle city council, stood before the television cameras and said: “We do believe that abuse has taken place … we have dismissed the employees and rejected their appeals and there is no question of us or anyone else employing these people again.”

        Under pressure from distressed and angry parents who had been led by the council itself to believe that their children had been abused, Newcastle city council commissioned an independent report from a review team consisting of Dr Richard Barker, a lecturer in social work at the University of Northumbria, independent social worker Judith Jones, psychologist Jacqui Saradjian and retired director of social services, Roy Wardell. They would receive £360,000 between them for their work.

        Although Reed and Lillie were advised by lawyers not to give evidence to the inquiry, and were not legally represented at it, the review team had no hesitation in finding them guilty of some of the most horrific criminal acts it is possible to imagine.

        The publication of the report had led newspapers to believe that they could say anything about the two nursery nurses, At one point the Newcastle Evening Chronicle quoted a Shieldfield mother as saying of Reed: ‘She tortured my son and to be honest I would trust Myra Hindley with my children more than I would her.’

    I have the greatest respect for JHK and have been a faithful follower and of his Blog for years . But I do not think Hilary Clinton will ever be arrested and charged with anything . Because if it has not happen by now , it never will. Trump has talked big about lock her up , but has done very little.

    I feel sorry for the Clinton’s . They were very excited when they came to Washington and believed what they were saying.

    It was Bill Clinton’s refusal to engage in endless war that set the Military Industrial Complex upon him and their puppet Ken Starr tried to ruin them . When they left office they were millions of dollars in debt from legal fees. It is no surprise they took the attitude they did about using the Clinton Foundation to make money.

    I have always admired the Clinton’s they shared power equally and survived situations the would have destroyed most marriages.

      “It is no surprise they took the attitude they did about using the Clinton Foundation to make money. ”

      I’m no admirer of the Clintons (or politicians in general), but I will tell you from personal experience that it does not take much exposure to the inner workings of our government to make one quite cynical about the whole affair.

    • mike d July 12, 2019 at 11:23 am #

      Lol! They don’t have what you call a traditional marriage. It is a politico/Business partnership. Hillary never gave a damn about who Bill was boinking. She only got mad when he was careless because when he got caught it affected her as well.

      But I agree about the ridiculous Ken Starr “investigation”. I was a bona fide Clinton hater in the 90s and even I came to see that it was truly a witch hunt that it wasted a lot of time and money. Plus Ken Starr is a far right wing Evangelical wingnut. That’s why Baylor University made him their president. It was a perfect fit.

          Interesting that Starr essentially turned a blind eye to all the sexual predators on the football team until it got so bad that he finally had to act like he cared. He’s a real scum bag piece of shit. Typical hypocrite fundamentalist.

    Another one bites the dust!

    President Trump said Friday that R. Alexander Acosta, his embattled secretary of labor, will resign following controversy over his handling of a sex crimes case involving the financier Jeffrey E. Epstein when Mr. Acosta was a federal prosecutor in Florida.

    Mr. Acosta’s resignation brings to four the number of cabinet agencies led by acting secretaries. The department’s deputy secretary, Patrick Pizzella, would assume the role of acting secretary, Mr. Trump said.

    So, it begins to get a bit more interesting….

      I’m no fan of Acosta, and it’s too bad he could not seek a heavier sentence in Epstein’s first pedophilia trial. But you do realize that Acosta was told by higher ups that Epstein is connected to intelligence and they had to go easy on him. The deep state was protecting its own, and Acosta had no choice in the matter.

      From Wikipedia:
      In June 2008, after Epstein pleaded guilty to a single state charge of soliciting prostitution from girls as young as 14,[31] he was sentenced to 18 months in prison. Instead of being sent to state prison as are the majority of sex offenders convicted in Florida, Epstein was housed in a private wing of the Palm Beach County Jail. He was able to hire his own security detail and was allowed “work release” to his downtown office for up to 12 hours a day six days a week.[32] He served 13 months before being released for a year of probation. While on probation he was allowed numerous trips on his corporate jet to his residences in Manhattan and the U.S. Virgin Island

    A day late and a dollar short? Too little too late?

    President Donald Trump hit back at former House Speaker Paul Ryan in a late-night Twitter thread, following reports of Ryan’s comments in a scathing new book from POLITICO reporter Tim Alberta.

    In a series of tweets on Thursday evening, Trump blasted the former Republican lawmaker from Wisconsin for “poor leadership and bad timing” during his House tenure.

    “Paul Ryan, the failed V.P. candidate & former Speaker of the House, whose record of achievement was atrocious (except during my first two years as President), ultimately became a long running lame duck failure, leaving his Party in the lurch both as a fundraiser & leader,” Trump wrote, referring to the 2012 presidential campaign where Ryan was number two on the ticket with now-Sen. Mitt Romney, who was then the GOP nominee for president.

        Based on the experience of my sister-in-law, Darlene (wife of the infamous Peter) who died 5 years ago on the 4th of July, I will predict Merkel will be diagnosed as having one of the various forms of Parkinson’s disease. And when they’re not sure which form it is they call it Parkinsonism and/or MSA (Multiple System Atrophy) which is the perfect name for what happens to a person, namely EVERYTHING begins to degrade and break down in slow motion (it takes years) until the person can’t even talk. And then they die on a national holiday which makes it very easy to remember their date of death and thereby have a longer life in memory.

  26. volodya July 12, 2019 at 12:23 pm #

    I wish I’m as optimistic as our esteemed host as to nemesis. They say that the arc of the moral universe bends toward justice. Does it? This and the idea of nemesis sounds tantamount to religious conviction. But I’m not religious. What do they say, that justice delayed is justice denied? And so events do unfold but it’s never timely, a shambolic process, never a neat and tidy movie ending, the good guys riding off triumphant, with justice adequately meted out.

    So is there really some restorative agent working behind the scenes? Or is it just the usual normal working of things, the normal operation of natural laws intersecting with human nature and especially with that most human attribute of hubris.

    You’ve seen it, people have a bit of success and it goes to their head, making them think they’re more capable than they really are. Or they pull off some shit, and they aren’t called to account, at least not right away.

    Maybe what looks like nemesis is just people getting too far out over their skis. Maybe it’s simply a complex world that overwhelms people’s ability to cope, even the most powerful and wealthy. After all, other people have got contending interests and they react if they get stepped on. And, even if you fool some of the people some of the time, you can’t fool them all of the time as you can’t fully control information.

    And so even if the Epsteins get away with heinous acts for a while, people get hurt and people talk and inevitably there’s blow-back.

    The Deep State arranges things for the advantage of the monied elite and its enabling nomenklatura and it tries to control the narrative as to what’s what, and it tries to discredit malcontents, those people that get hurt by the machinations and who speak up.

    But people have got eyes and ears and minds of their own and they act in their own defense. And events start to overwhelm even the most entrenched and well-armed and densely tentacled governments. And the same happens with the vampiric squid-like financial businesses currently strangling the productive economy. They can’t control everyone, everywhere.

    And so it looks like nemesis. Will it engulf the Clintons and the Deep State? The timing may not suit us but It’s a matter of time.

    Hillary as a Subjective Factor of History

    I have already said many times that Hillary Clinton is the head of the War Party, possessing outstanding qualities for that position, such as intelligence, will, cunning, apparent hypnotic abilities, sadism, pathological deceit and of course adorable laughter.

    Moreover, if the “role of the individual in history” is simplified to a primitive, then if the very existence of the War Party is completely objective, but the above personal qualities of its head are a subjective factor.

    And as an exercise on this very philosophical topic, I propose to recall that I have said many times that all modern politics, up to the seemingly inevitable approach of nuclear war, is determined by the permanent election campaign of Hillary Clinton.

    And geopolitical events, such as: major terrorist attacks, revolutions, wars, etc. and so on, they do not influence the campaign too much, but certain campaign turns change the geopolitical situation drastically.

      The matter of the fact that Hillary was responsible among the American Elites for making sure that Russia sticks by the still undisclosed unconditional surrender signed by Spotted Judas Gorbachev in Reykjavik.

      Judging by the latest events, she fabulously fucked up the assignment.

    Hillary Clinton is a Red Herring. She’s the person they want you to focus on. Sure she’s evil incarnate, but she’s taking your eyes off the people that really run things.

    S. Donald Sussman, J.B. Pritzker, Cheryl Saban, S. Daniel Abraham, Fred Eychaner, George Soros, Haim Saban and James Simons raised a Billion dollars for her in 2016

    Jesus, what a clusterfuck of comments and another ridiculous post by JHK in which senility must be setting in as he repeats himself every week. Like Fox News, Kunstler, makes a major story about Epstein into a story about the Clintons somehow forgetting Trump’s grotesque habits and how they are probably linked to Epstein’s grotesque habits. Funny how Jim fails to mention Christopher Steele’s credible testimony this week….

      Clinton has so many frequent flyer miles on the Lolita Express how can it not be about him as well? It’s well known by just about everyone in both parties. Somehow you didn’t get the memo it appears.

      But thanks for the laugh….”Christopher Steele’s credible testimony”! That is effing hilarious!

      Trump has grotesque habits. For sure. But Epstein’s habits are far worse than just grotesque. They are felonious, sociopathic and just plain sadistic.

    “Leopold had paid £ 800 a month, a former servant of the house testified, for a steady supply of young women, some of whom were ten to fifteen years old and guaranteed to be virgins. A Paris newspaper reported rumors that Leopold had secretly crossed to England in his yacht and paid a royal sum to the house’s madam to be sure his name was not mentioned again. More likely, what made the case close with unusual speed was that the Prince of Wales was said to be another of the establishment’s customers. The British home secretary sent a special observer to the court, apparently a veiled message to all concerned that the less said, the better. After pleading guilty, the madam of the house got off with a remarkably light fine.“

    The Clinton Foundation…. I read that The Clinton Foundation does a lot of philanthropy in Africa to help people with AIDS. Bill Clinton made several trips to Africa aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s jet.

    “Stanley was savvy enough to demand his money from Leopold in advance because, despite a plethora of contracts, whom he was working for remained foggy: was it the king himself, the king’s International African Association, which seemed to be withering away, or a new and somewhat secretive body called the Committee for Studies of the Upper Congo? The committee’s stockholders officially were a small group of Dutch and British businessmen and a Belgian banker—who, in fact, was quietly holding a large block of shares as Leopold’s proxy. A trusted henchman of the king’s, Colonel Maximilien Strauch, was the committee’s president. Ambitious as his and Stanley’s plans were, Leopold was intent that they be seen as nothing more than philanthropy. The contracts Stanley made his European staff sign forbade them to divulge anything about the real purpose of their work. “Only scientific explorations are intended,” Leopold assured a journalist. To anyone who questioned further, he could point to a clause in the committee’s charter that explicitly prohibited it from pursuing political ends. The king wanted to protect himself against the widespread feeling in Belgium that, for a small country, a colony would be a money-losing extravagance. He also wanted to do nothing to alert any potential rivals for this appetizing slice of the African cake, especially France, which was starting to show interest.“

    There is no doubt that Jeffrey Epstein was arrested in response to the Deepwater Losharik incident.

    That means others will follow (a lot).

    I will explain in details a little later, in the post about the Sakharov Plan

  34. FincaInTheMountains July 12, 2019 at 5:15 pm #

    The Sakharov Plan

    First of all, I want to draw your attention that Andrei Dmitrievich Sakharov was a genius.

    I have spoken to him for a total of two hours, but during these two hours my opinion about him was final.

    Then he was a patriot, and this was manifested in the fact that even being a Soviet dissident of the highest order, he never discussed state secrets with people who were not supposed to know these secrets.

    In particular, under no circumstances would he discuss with me the plan of his, which undoubtedly related to the highest State Secrets and therefore what I call the Sakharov plan is actually my plan, or rather a puzzle, which I put together.

    Some of them were discovered at the Courant Institute near Washington Square and also in a townhouse in two blocks from a luxurious mansion of a registered pedophile named Epstein, who was arrested in response to the fire on Losharik.

    It was in this townhouse that graduates of the University of Göttingen gathered, including Professor Antony Sutton, the only anti-Soviet whose anti-Sovietism inspires respect.

    In addition, the slips of tongue of physicists who worked with Sakharov and discussed the human relations of Soviet scientists and party leaders at that time were very important pieces in this mosaic. But putting all these pieces together allowed me only knowing how Andrei Dmitrievich brain worked, as well as the situation that developed in the world and in his family in the mid-60s.

    In any case, the result, I think, turned out to be quite close to reality, but this is not for me to decide, but you. So decide for yourself to believe or not to believe my “conjectures.”

    And we must begin with the fact that Andrei Dmitrievich stepped onto the slippery path leading to being an opponent to the Soviet regime as a result of a quarrel between physicists for the honor of being called the fathers of the atomic bomb, as a result of which students of Vlasov and Bogolyubov, who had no relationship to creating the hydrogen bomb, began to engage in fundamental physics, but they the students of Igor Evgenievich Tamm, who created it, began to study fundamental problems through cosmology.

    I should mention that Andrei Dmitrievich taught the General Theory of Relativity and this greatly influenced his thinking and led to our meeting, and my theory, which I could not explain to Nirenberg and had to return to 1976 in order to explain to him at least something, Andrei Dmitrievich understood literally instantly.

    Unfortunately, he was in a few days sent to the Sladky, and it began in 1966, when he first showed himself as dissident, signing a letter of twenty-five.

    After this letter, the Central Committee began to be wary of his recommendations, as Sakharov recalled:

    “Now I assume that the initiative of our letter belonged not only to E. Henry, but also to his influential friends (I don’t know where in the party apparatus, or in the KGB, or anywhere else). Henry was by no means a “dissident.”

    And Sutton argued that around this time in the USSR it became known about the first successes of the United States in creating a Multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle (MIRV)

    It was the creation of this technology and the installation of MIRV warheads on Poseidon missiles launched from submarines in the Baltic Sea that enabled the West to gain a decisive military advantage in the form of the ability to deliver a disarming strike to the launch positions of Soviet missiles, with one Poseidon missile capable of destroying 10 Soviet missiles, moreover, the flight time to the Soviet missiles launch pads in the European part of the USSR was about 5 minutes.

    And Soviet missiles of a retaliatory strike, which were supposed to start after a mass launch of missiles by the United States, flew 40 minutes to their targets.

    The only answer to this threat before creating your own MIRV was to increase the power of the warheads and deploy missiles in Siberia, which was thwarted by an attempt to deploy American medium-range missiles in Afghanistan.

    An alternative response to the American threat of MIRV could be an extremely expensive missile defense system or a preemptive strike, but the same group in the party apparatus that provoked the letter of 25 (Khrushchev’s supporters?) managed to renounce the right to a preemptive strike with an ideological dogma and declared the moral advantage of socialism, and as a result of this game of geopolitical chess, the moral advantage of the USSR was multiplied by minus one, since Soviet missiles were aimed at causing unacceptable damage to the American cities, and American first-strike missiles aimed at the launch positions of Soviet missiles.

    To be continued…

      What are the facts of the Epstein case? I don’t know and who do I believe? Where do I go for the facts except to the media or bloggers who I can trust for their competence?

      Here is a very short video by John Ziegler about what most people believe to be the facts in the Paterno/ Sandusky case:

      youtube.com/watch?v=6D_iUi2Gy4Q&list=PLroWPePriqFv3P8Nw_e6lvcxgyQyp93u2&index=5

      and this

      youtube.com/watch?v=onXDBlXn9Zw&list=PLroWPePriqFv3P8Nw_e6lvcxgyQyp93u2&index=4&t=138…

      and

      youtube.com/watch?v=GCMLuUZIHL8&list=PLroWPePriqFv3P8Nw_e6lvcxgyQyp93u2&index=4

      and a few others in the Penn State Scandal playlist on Ziegler’s YT channel.

      I don’t actually agree with his analysis insofar as it has little to do with the media’s inability to handle complex stories, or their desire to make money or whatever. I believe they do it because it is a question of collective fantasy. Journalists see themselves as moral crusaders and this is incompatible with reporting the facts, or even recognizing them.

      • hmuller July 13, 2019 at 6:45 pm #

        Sean Coleman, I detect a pattern in your posts. Every time someone is accused of pedophilia. you jump to their defense and declare them innocent. You do this no matter the ideological flavor of the accused. It’s as if you don’t want to believe such things can possibly happen in our world.

        Of course, you will always find flaws in the media coverage. Do we then conclude every case is all smoke and delusion? No such acts occurred? Where does all this denial come from? (That was a rhetorical question or one for your therapist. We don’t need to know)

          hmuller

          “Sean Coleman, I detect a pattern in your posts.”

          I am glad I am getting through to someone because there is a pattern, a very simple one, but one I never see anyone else making, anywhere.

          “Every time someone is accused of pedophilia. you jump to their defense and declare them innocent. You do this no matter the ideological flavor of the accused.”

          Not quite, though I can see why you might see it that way, if you are not paying attention. I don’t always say they are innocent but that it is very likely they will be shown to be innocent. This is because there is pattern to these things (again a simple one) which indicates that all high-profile, sensationalist (note the qualifications) are unfounded witch hunts. So, with the last one, the Michael Jackson, scandal a few weeks ago I said that it was very likely to be unfounded although there was always a first time. The ideological ‘flavour’ of the accused is neither here nor there, although I am always much happier if it is someone from the Left (because nearly all of our contermporary collective fantasies are of the Left).

          “Of course, you will always find flaws in the media coverage.”

          No, there are absolutely not just flaws. The reporting is always outrageous. Journalists are the lowest of the low (except for criminals).

          “Do we then conclude every case is all smoke and delusion?”

          When it comes to these cases the answer is a resounding ‘yes!’.

          “No such acts occurred?”

          Nearly always ‘something’ occurred but never in the way it is reported, or even anything close. See my three short (5 mins) links to videos from John Ziegler’s YT channel on the last thread – search for the word Ziegler. These relate to the disgraceful media reporting of the Paterno-Sandusky affair.

          ” Where does all this denial come from?”

          Whose? Do you mean mine? This is not denial. It is all fully argued and backed up with evidence. Your reluctance to engage with my arguments shows denial on your part. The collective fantasy is so strong that people cannot bear it being called into question. If you do not agree with that explanation then you go ahead and tell me why you won’t deal with my arguments.

          “(That was a rhetorical question or one for your therapist. We don’t need to know)”

          So now you are speaking for everyone else here? I agree with most of what you write here but if you don’t get this bit you don’t really get anything.

    The Sakharov Plan

    as a result of this game of geopolitical chess, the moral advantage of the USSR was multiplied by minus one, since Soviet missiles were aimed at causing unacceptable damage to the American cities, and American first-strike missiles aimed at the launch positions of Soviet missiles.

    An additional ideological loss to the USSR was that the Americans declared their first strike preventive, and Hillary Clinton’s style is already felt in this ideological maneuver, the elevation of which was due to the fact that it was in 1972 that she hypnotized President Nixon and tore out of him the resignation letter, when he refused to disavow START I treaty even after he was informed about the benefits that the United States obtained with the creation of the MIRV technology.

    It was under these circumstances that Andrei Dmitrievich Sakharov, between signing a letter of 25 in 1966 and meeting with Yelena Bonner in 1970, suggested using a “puff” (a way to generate fission explosion) to create mega-tsunami that would wash away both US coasts, but he did it not to kill as many Americans as possible, but in order for the USSR not to spend all its economic resources on the arms race, but to create the possibility of such an answer to the first disarming American strike, which is also a preventive strike by the United States, that the very possibility of such a strike would lose for a potential aggressor its appeal.

    And who knows, maybe if they believed him in the Central Committee then there would have been no Watergate, and Hillary Clinton’s main talent would have remained the talent that made Bill Clinton her husband and gave her a nickname Deep Throat in the editorial office of the Washington Post.

    And Sakharov’s proposal consisted of using a thermonuclear explosion to slide into one of the ocean depressions of a sufficient massive rock that stood on the edge of this depression in unstable equilibrium.

    Please note that by itself the thermonuclear explosion of even 200 megatons does not have enough energy to generate such a mega-tsunami and could only be used as a trigger for a massive(several hundred million tons) mass of rock to drop into the enormous oceanic depth and displace huge amount of water at high speed.

    And as I was told by the people who worked with Sakharov, after many years, having already lost clearance, he struck their imagination by approaching the huge map of the World Ocean, he unmistakably pointed his finger at the places where such rocks exist, of what they were convinced a few days later, contacting oceanologists and geologists of the Russian Academy of Sciences, using their official position for this.

    Now quite a lot of such rocks are known – enough to drown all of NATO several times over, but then it was a problem, although the mega-tsunami in Lituya Bay was already well studied, as well as the fact that the island of La Palma could slide into the ocean depth of 4 km during the first eruption of the Cumbre Vieja Volcano, and then with mega-tsunami, the whole of West Africa, Western Europe and the East Coast of the USA will be washed away by one kilometer high wave, and Chile will also have some hard times.

    And what is known to the general public as Sakharov’s plan, he may have been discussed in the smoking rooms, but in the late 50s, and the government was told about this by the rocket people, who were afraid that Sakharov’s tsunami would take money from them to develop new, more powerful and fast missiles needed for a retaliatory strike.

    They compromised Sakharov’s idea back in 1961, when Andrei Dmitrievich quarreled with Khrushchev, but even after Khrushchev was removed, this obviously impracticable idea went ahead of his proposals, and after meeting with Yelena Bonner, he was not up to the mega-tsunami. Later, the Andropov-Gorbachev clan took advantage of this, which used the threat of the American Tridents with the MIRV and the threat of American missiles in Afghanistan in the political struggle.

    But the fact of the matter is that only workable ideas have occurred to Andrei Dmitrievich.

      Okay I’m going to call BS on a 27 year old Hillary hypnotizing Nixon into resigning. I just don’t buy that for a second. Prove it if you can.

      Nixon finally decided to resign when Barry Goldwater came to the WH and told him, “Mr. President you have lost most of the GOP in the Senate. The House will Impeach you and the Senate will then remove you from office”.

      And of course it wasn’t like there were a lot of Repubs in the Senate at that time anyway. But if all of them had voted NOT to remove it would’ve been enough to keep the vote from reaching two thirds. Barry set him straight on this.

      A twenty something gal with oversized librarian glasses would NOT have intimidated Richard Nixon into resigninig. That is laughable.

      I’ve definitely noticed that fat is the in thing again among the SJWs. I can dig a fat girl if they don’t get carried away with it, but becoming a sweathog out of some misguided sense of cool is just totally misguided. What most don’t realize is that being marginally fat at a young age will more often than not also consign them to eating disorders and major>, potentially life threatening, weight gains as they age. In the end, being fat is simply a sign of ill-health, and in that sense, public shaming, while sometimes harsh, is warranted. As a sign of western decadence, it’s also a sign of moral depravity.

    Punjabis have completely displaced Europeans as a ruling class in Canada, and now they’ve set their sights on America.

    Ruthless repatriation of Punjabis back to Punjab is the only insurance against White Extinction.”

      and

      Racial alienation does strange things to otherwise normal brains.
      Saini’s racial instinct rebelled against her minority status in British society so she decided to play the victim and adopt an anti-white racist attitude since it’s infinitely better to blame one’s alienation on the host society rather than on those who brought her to England in the first place.
      When immigrant leftists demand that western societies admit non-whites, what they don’t realize is that they are doing so in order to make their host country racially compatible to them – ergo, for racist reasons. The hypocrisy is laughable.

      As for the leftist denial that race exists, I often prefer to use the word breed instead whenever I encounter the nonsense of race-denial. It’s worth pointing out that there are breeds of men, as a result of natural selection, in the same way that there are breeds of dogs. After all, what self-respecting leftist doesn’t believe in evolution?

In other words, they get themselves into a lather about something they don’t even believe in (Tibetan Buddhism and the institution of the Dalai Lama) but want to make “equal”.

    Dissident Gay says:Next New Comment

    As (conservative) gay, I have to admit I find it really funny that the first gay candidate for president has the word “butt” in his last name.

    Plus his first name, Peter, can be used as a euphemism for “penis.”

    I like Ace of Spades’ term for him, “Mayor Buttplug” (a popular sex toy among some gays).

    I didn’t catch the irony that he comes from “South Bend”—funny!!!

    Mayor Buttplug is just a typical lefty radical who can talk slick and make the stupidest ideas sound somewhat reasonable. He’ll never get the votes of straight blacks, as they generally don’t like gays. He’d be a disaster as president; fortunately he’ll never make it (I hope and pray!!). There are sensible gays who see Buttplug for the sham that he is. I keep hoping someone will dig up and spread over the Internet naughty pictures of him doing what gays do with other guys. I’m sure they’re out there somewhere on cyberspace

    I don’t know how the pedophilia gets intermingled with the occult Satanism, but it must be an organic phenomenon? You’re got the element of secrecy, and it’s an organized activity in the procuring of young girls (and boys) for the rich and powerful by dark intermediaries. And then you’re got Authoritarian personalities involved. I think that it was Carl Jung who did a lot of research into the Authoritarian Personality, and he discovered that Authoritarians have a strong proclivity for superstition and the Occult. This pedophilia inherently involves the taking of young innocence so it is basically human sacrifice, of sorts, to begin with. It’d be a short step to rituals offering the young girls’ ( and boys’) innocence to some weird god that they worship?

    “Leopold had paid £ 800 a month, a former servant of the house testified, for a steady supply of young women, some of whom were ten to fifteen years old and guaranteed to be virgins. A Paris newspaper reported rumors that Leopold had secretly crossed to England in his yacht and paid a royal sum to the house’s madam to be sure his name was not mentioned again. More likely, what made the case close with unusual speed was that the Prince of Wales was said to be another of the establishment’s customers. The British home secretary sent a special observer to the court, apparently a veiled message to all concerned that the less said, the better. After pleading guilty, the madam of the house got off with a remarkably light fine.“

    I suppose that it was great and tragic historical irony that it was the US Civil War, the so-called “War to Free the Slaves”, which proffered the advances in military technology that enabled the enslavement of Africa? ( “Mine eyes have seen the glory…He’s unfurled the fateful lightening of his terrible swift sword.”) In fact, I read that one strong motivation for the US Congress to be the first country to recognize the Belgian pedophile, King Leopold II’s claim to the Congo was that the Congo presented a potential opportunity to repatriate the American “Freed” slaves back to Africa. Henry Morton Stanley who was King Leopold’s “Main Man” in the Congo “negotiating” (swindling) treaties with the multifarious tribes was a former soldier in the Confederate Army who fought at the Battle of Shiloh.

    “And compared to his household, for Leopold things in the Congo ran more smoothly. Just as he had found the perfect political moment to acquire his new territory, so he found himself at the right technological moment to consolidate his grip on it. As he prepared to develop the enormous colony, he found a number of tools at his disposal that had not been available to empire builders of earlier times. The tools were crucial, for they would soon allow a few thousand white men working for the king to dominate some twenty million Africans. To begin with, there was weaponry. The primitive muzzle-loaders which were the best arms that most Congolese could obtain were little better than the muskets of George Washington’s army. Starting in the late 1860s, however, Europeans could rely on breech-loading rifles, which had just shown their deadly power on the battlefields of the American Civil War. These shot much farther and more accurately, and, instead of needing loose gunpowder, which was useless in the rain, they used quick-loading waterproof brass cartridges. An even more decisive advance quickly followed: the repeating rifle, which could fire a dozen or more shots without being reloaded. Soon after came the machine gun.“

    General Zhukov’s tactics during the Battle of Kursk were primitive, but effective: The strategy was basically to use the Soviets’ numerical superiority in soldiers, planes, and equipment to wear down the German’s tactical sophistication and technological superiority in a programmatic, wash-and-repeat approach. For example, the Russians would first place a big obstacle in front of the awesome German panzers, such as a big field of anti-tank mines, and bunkered soldiers with anti-tank weapons. This tactic forced the Germans to employ infantry and engineers to clear the mines taking huge casualties Similarly, the Soviet Air Force was outclassed by the Luftwaffe, but during the battle the Luftwaffe became overextended such that the Soviet planes had opportunities to hit Na…zi panzers exposed without air cover.

    Per Jim:

    “And that was followed by the first instance of Hillary moneygrubbing when she turned a few thousand bucks into a six-figure bonanza almost overnight in a wired commodities trade.”

    Per Wikipedia:

    “Hillary Clinton cattle futures controversy – Likelihood of results”

    “Various publications sought to analyze the likelihood of Clinton’s successful results. Clinton made her money by betting mostly on a market downturn at a time when cattle prices actually doubled.The editor of the Journal of Futures Markets said in April 1994, “This is like buying ice skates one day and entering the Olympics a day later. She took some extraordinary risks.” Her activities involved exposure to losses that could have been greater than her family’s net worth if the market had turned sharply against her. The former head of the IRS chief counsel’s Commodities Industry Specialization Team expressed skepticism that a novice trader could make such a return. One analysis performed by Auburn University and published in the Journal of Economics and Finance claimed to find that the odds of a return as large as Clinton obtained during the period in question were about one in 31 trillion.”

    “I do not announce my plans ahead of time.” –Trump

    Trump said raids were set to begin Sunday. ICE sent around 2,000 letters to families in ten cities. The names of the ten cities were made public. The upcoming ICE operation is expected to target approximately 2,000 people, according to a senior immigration official. How much more of an announcement do immigrants need to avoid being arrested?

    DHS estimates 12 million “illegal aliens” reside in the US. (They are not referring to Area 51.)

    Let’s see. 12 million divided by 2,000 = 16 years to remove those currently in the USA, if 2,000 a day are removed. More like 160 years… and… New immigrants arrive daily.

    Maybe in 16 years the wall will be built?
    Maybe in 16 years Obamacare will be repealed?
    Maybe in 16 years we will get some infrastructure built?

    One thing is for sure: in a few years coal will only make up 10% of our energy mix. Another broken Trump promise.

    U.S. coal production will decline by 72 million short tons (MMst) (9%) in 2019. Coal supply is expected to decline across all regions of the United States in 2019. Covfefe.

      Henry Morton Stanley described his African porters as “Slaves”, and as “Knaves”. Henry Morton Stanley was a Welch bastard whose mother was a whore and a witch. Henry Morton Stanley joined the British merchant navy as a cabin boy who was sodomized by the crew on his maiden voyage from Liverpool. He jumped ship in New Orleans and later joined the Confederate Army and was wounded and captured at the Battle of Shiloh. He later joined the Union Navy during the US Civil War. He later became a reporter and then an African Explorer. Stanley later found himself on a retainer of King Leopold II of Belgium. Stanley played a key role on King Leopold II’s scheme to get control over the Congo. King Leopold II bears striking similarities to the Clinton’s in how he schemed and maneuvered.

        Carlos Marcello, Trafficante, and Giancana certainly had the motive, the means, and the capabilities to pull if off and with the aid of some of their rogue CIA buddies from the Fidel Castro assassination operations it made the most sense to me.

    Another problem with this nemesis thing is that the Deep State is populated by people aligned with either one of the two main parties. Trump is aligned with neither. Yeah, he got the Republican nomination. But he got it despite the opposition of Republican officialdom, both inside elected public office and outside of it. And don’t forget Republicans with cozy sinecures in the Washington ecosystem aka the Swamp, that Trump vowed to drain.

    So, if you’re looking for remediation for the multifarious offences committed during the conduct of the 2016 election campaign and after Trump’s ascension, you’re depending on Deep State institutions populated by Democrat and Republican loyalists that regard Trump as they would an intestinal parasite.

    People will believe what they want. Ah, you say, you’re entitled to your own opinion but you’re not entitled to your own facts? Tell that to the country’s bi-coastal intelligentsia. Russia put Trump in the White House. Russia meddled, altering the outcome, full stop, end of discussion and if you’re a serious person, if you’re intelligent and well educated and well meaning, then that’s what you believe.

    No facts? That doesn’t stop them. There’s patterns of events that could not plausibly have otherwise occurred without the assist of an outside power. Trump’s nomination, the leak of DNC emails, Hillary’s eventual loss, none of this squares with what is known about the known universe. It HAD to be the Russians. Hillary could NOT have lost a fair election against one such as Trump. It just doesn’t scan.

    Of course the known universe of known facts to such people ignores a known universe of known facts entirely outside their experience and it’s this latter universe that they’d prefer to ignore, that if it’s brought to their attention, they discount as being unreal.

    “Alternative facts” as Kelly Anne said in relation to attendance numbers at Trump’s inauguration. But there really is a large set of “alternative” facts, and as FACTS, they abide in the real world. These FACTS comprise a lived experience for a large multitude of people, a large number of which voted for Trump because he called attention to them and attested as to the reality.

    But Trump’s opponents, whether they’re main-stream Republicans or Democrats, would rather chew off their own thumbs than acknowledge this state of things outside their immediate view. They won’t admit to it because they’re responsible for inflicting for much of what they say doesn’t exist.

    IMO, there will be nemesis, but not because of the Deep State, and not because of the operation of its institutions, but despite it.

          I went to the Urban Dictionary to make sure I had it right….

          1) well said
          2) said in a agreement
          3) can be used as a greeting, “hey whats up”

          When I used it I was saying, “Well said”. I also agree with much of what you said, but not sure if I do one hundred percent. I have recently come to the conclusion that Russia did more in the 2016 election than I previously thought. Malcolm Nance has changed my mind a lot on this.

          Of course the “proof” Trump colluded is still not airtight. But the Russian Intelligence should not be undersold. Just like no major country’s Intelligence shouldn’t be. They are good at what they do.

            Thanks for the nice compliment. The question in my mind is, given who the Democrats were running against, how was this election lost?

            IMO, politics in the USA is tribal with the two major ethnic groups, North and South, lining up against one another with small number of constituencies going one way or the other. That small group shouldn’t have been that difficult to convince that Trump is utterly unsuitable and unfit.

            Trump is a dirty-dog by multiple measures. There should have been enough Republican voters that looked at Trump and said this guy is a bankrupt and low-down New York City degenerate and passed on him by not voting at all.

            Yet, somehow, after voting twice for Obama, hundreds of counties voted for Trump. Was it the Russians? Hard to believe they have the acumen in American electoral politics to pull that off. Hillary’s “deplorable” speech should have been enough to do it, at least in my view.

            OK, so maybe I overlooked Nance. I have to admit that after I read a bit of what Nance was saying I never thought he was credible. So, maybe it’s time for a revisit. According to Nance, what did the Russians have that tilted the table? I recall that his view is that Trump is Putin’s man, at best an unwitting dupe.

            I don’t discount the Russkis. Far from it. Count the number of “firsts” they chalked up in the 1960s in the space race. But I’ve got to be honest, I’ve never seen intel agencies as particularly competent. The opposite in fact, especially the CIA, which if you put an elephant in the room, would fail to see it.

            According to the social media companies the volume of Russian activity on their platforms up to the election was negligible compared to the daily deluge. Does Nance differ with this assessment? He also apparently takes a dim view of Mueller because he came to a conclusion that was utterly at odds with Nance’s. Don’t mean to sound snarky, but does Nance figure he has the resources to do an investigation more thoroughly than Mueller?

            If Mueller had a motive to give the all-clear to Trump, despite evidence to the contrary, what would it be? I mean, we have to be realists, Washington has more inter-locking wheels than a swiss watch. Did Trump have more on Mueller than Mueller had on him?

            In the end, it’s a question of facts. It’s like that guy said a long time ago, when the facts change (or when new facts come to my attention) I change my mind.

            Volodya,

            I believe Russkie Intelligence did various things to influence the election. Our CIA does the same basic things in various other country’s elections around the world. It is nothing new. I think that Nance does a pretty good job of explaining what the Russians did. Of course he’s a spook himself, so his hands aren’t exactly clean, shall we say. He should know how that world operates. He operated in it himself for decades.

            Now would Trump had one regardless of what the Russians did? I think so. You were asking how could Trump have won given that he’s such a low down degenerate. He got lucky. Hillary was his opponent. She is so reviled and despised by such a large segment of the population. Like I said in another post, she lost enough of her fellow female votes in those key swing states to really hurt her chances. Many, many women can’t stand her either. Let’s face it…..she’s a Bitch. Total, unlikable, snooty, arrogant, Bitch. Trump was so lucky the Dems nominated her. Well, I should say the DNC that the Clinton Crime Syndicate owned fixed that for her.

            Back to Nance, I’m not as convinced as he is that Trump acted in a co-conspiratorial manner with the Russians. Obviously Mueller strongly suspected this, but couldn’t find enough smoking gun evidence. So Nance is interesting to listen to with regards to learning how Intelligence Agencies jack with other country’s elections. But I take the “collusion” part of his message with a grain of salt. It’s pretty much moot now anyway.

            I do think Mueller is compromised. We may get to see exactly how in the months ahead, as JHK has been saying. This Epstein case may be a huge headache for him. Get out the popcorn.

        It’ll no doubt be available in the form of a pill. It’ll be street hawkers at first because at first it will no doubt be illegal. But, as time passes, and as corporate interests declare to their elected representatives that they want to muscle in, safe-space pills will be legalized. And then look out, Madison Avenue branding, the inevitable IPO with execs at the NYSE opening bell clapping and cheering. And with a fig leaf of regulation.

        The urge to police speech is as old as time. You police your own speech to be one of the boys, to be in your boss’s good graces, or, depending on the country you live in and the era, to avoid getting your head busted by the local capo and his bullies. The question is how deep it goes. Will the American nomenklatura turn out to be as thuggish as the Soviet?

        No matter the motive, policing speech is a thing crying out for another thing, technology, specifically in the form of algorithms to suss out unacceptable phrases used on social media or in your own house (Alexa), or, it’ll come in the form of video surveillance to make sure you have the requisite expression of quiet optimism.

        But speech policing isn’t just about social justice warriors bugging everyone’s ass about lezzies, gays and trannies, it’s also about not raising uncomfortable questions about operating assumptions. A lot of people would rather be comfortably wrong, even if it’s costly to them in the long-run, rather than re-examine what they think is right, to avoid those same costs down the road. It’s stressful IOW, and disruptive to raise questions. Consequently, questioners will be laughed at, and derided as negativists and will face ostracism. Nobody wants that. A lot of people would rather keep quiet and go over a cliff if they know everyone else goes with them.

          Volodya, they could be even worse. Americans, after all, have the legacy of Puritanism to draw upon, which is why so many of our political causes become crusades. The “wokester” clowns of today, in their fiery faith, resemble too closely for comfort dear old Cotton Mather.

          And you are unfortunately correct. For many, it is more comfortable to say nothing and let others do the thinking for you. I could easily look down upon those people for that, but then I recall what you mention about the boss’ good graces. A single guy putting his job on the line and getting fired is one thing; involving one’s family in such acts is a lot messier and quite possibly irresponsible.

          Gotta keep The Man happy. But what happens when the entire concern collapses and suddenly, the boss has no answers to the difficult questions?

    This morning I was tidying up one of my email accounts and I came across this in the Drafts folder. I didn’t compose it and I don’t remember who did. But it is a very concise little essay on how banks work, and the foundation of real evil in this world IMO. It would be nice if every High School aged kid would read and really get this, and then be motivated to look into it more. The vast majority of you here already know this information inside and out, but I thought I’d share it anyway. Pass it on to your kids and/or grandkids if you feel so moved:

    As Henry Ford, long dead founder of Ford Motors once said “If the American people understood the banking system, they would revolt over night.” The “Federal” Reserve is federal in name only. It’s only quasi federal. The U.S. President can name the Chairman, but the government has no control over the Federal Reserve. It’s essentially owned by the major shareholders of Goldman Sacs, Chase Manhattan, J.P Morgan (Morgan Stanley), and a few more. One question, always unanswered, is who are the major shareholders of those major banks. History seems to point to the Rothschild Family Cartel and their extended families, such as the Warburgs.

    The Rothschilds became the central bankers of most of the major European nations in the mid 1700s and learned to fund both, or all sides of international conflicts. During the aftermath of WW1, at the time of the Treaty Of Versailles, a Warburg represented the German Bundesbank and his brother, obviously another Warburg, was the U.S. Treasury Secretary representing the U.S. During the U.S. “Civil” War, one Warburg (think Rothschild) bank funded the North, another Warburg bank funded the Confederacy. Pres. Lincoln, in an attempt to get out from under the bankers, had the Treasury department create honest “Federal” money, later called “Lincoln Greenbacks”.

    John Wilkes Both, Lincoln’s assassin, was employed by the Rothschild cartel. Pres. John Kennedy was assassinated two weeks after he announced that the U.S. intended to issue some of its own money.

    The mostly hidden international banking cartel funds the warring factions, the military industrial complexes, and the war reparations.

    Small independent banks in the United States can become members of the non-federal Federal Reserve Banking System. I’m not sure of the requirements.

    I do know that any bank can legally lend 10 X the value of it’s assets. So I can borrow. as an example, $100,000 for a home loan if the banks assets were only $10,000. The bank simply adds the digits ($100,000) to my account and then sits back and receives over, say 30 years, $100,000 that it never had, plus 30 years of interest on something it never had to loan in the first place. Poof! Money out of nothing! And to top that off, that outstanding loan of $100,000 is then considered an asset of the bank. Seems like there’s a bank on every street corner of every town in America. I wonder why! Duh! Banks extract more money than drug cartels, and legally.

    • Janos Skorenzy July 13, 2019 at 12:41 pm #

      Yes, the greatest fraud in Human History and of greater practical import than any other. The have created a de facto system of slavery that few have the wit to see or the honesty to admit to themselves that they are slaves.

      In the old system, a Bank might invest in a mercantile venture, but if the ship sank, they lost out too along with the Merchants. But now the Bank wins no matter what. The untying of money from the actual physical world is unnatural and ruinous.

    • hmuller July 13, 2019 at 7:12 pm #

      Mike d. you wrote: Banks extract more money than drug cartels, and legally.

      Are you following the story reported by all media (even the MSM) that a ship own by JP Morgan was caught carrying nearly 20 tons of cocaine valued at $1.3 billion? The banks and drug cartels are intertwined. It was public news a few years back that Wachovia laundered nearly $400 billion in narco money; same with Hong Kong Shanghai Bank.

      • mike d July 13, 2019 at 8:18 pm #

        Actually I didn’t write it. I can’t remember where I got that little piece and who wrote it.

        Anyway, yes you are right about the banks and drug cartels being intertwined. That’s been going on for decades. I think what the guy who wrote that meant is that Banks do extract money in more accepted ways that are legal. Not necessarily moral, but legal.

    JS: Speaking of Altered Realities, one must mention the so called Climate Change, the biggest Scientific hoax since Pitltdown Man – and of far greater scope and import. Greater than the Scopes Monkey Trial in that sense as well. Of course spiritually, Anthropological hoax is of the first importance. The idea that we are descended from Apes or Negroes is damning, is it not? Our bodies may be descended from a line of Hominids, both African and non-African, but not our Souls. And not Negroes in either dimension. All good men and ghosts are outraged by the latter supposition as per the scene in The Shining.

    RT

    A new study conducted by a Finnish research team has found little evidence to support the idea of man-made climate change. The results of the study were soon corroborated by researchers in Japan.

    In a paper published late last month, entitled ‘No experimental evidence for the significant anthropogenic climate change’, a team of scientists at Turku University in Finland determined that current climate models fail to take into account the effects of cloud coverage on global temperatures, causing them to overestimate the impact of human-generated greenhouse gasses.

    Models used by official bodies such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) “cannot compute correctly the natural component included in the observed global temperature,” the study said, adding that “a strong negative feedback of the clouds is missing” in the models.

    Adjusting for the cloud coverage factor and accounting for greenhouse gas emissions, the researchers found that mankind is simply not having much of an effect on the Earth’s temperature.

    If we pay attention to the fact that only a small part of the increased CO2 concentration is anthropogenic, we have to recognize that the anthropogenic climate change does not exist in practice. The study’s authors make a hard distinction between the type of model favored by climate scientists at the IPCC and genuine evidence, stating “We do not consider computational results as experimental evidence,” noting that the models often yield contradictory conclusions.

    Given the evidence presented in the study, the Finnish team rounded out the paper by concluding “we have practically no anthropogenic climate change,” adding that “the low clouds control mainly the global temperature.”

    The results sharply cut against claims put forward by many environmentalists, including US lawmakers such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who argue not only that climate change is an immediate threat to the planet, but that it is largely a man-made phenomenon. Ocasio-Cortez, better known as ‘AOC’, has proposed a ‘Green New Deal’ to address the supposedly dire threat.

        Only a small amount of the Carbon Dioxide is man made. The Sun decides when He wants to take a nap. When He does, it’s Ice Age time. Venus is very cloudy and the temp is over 800 degrees. But there is no anthropegenic warming since there are no anthros there. They are closer to the Sun, that’s all. The clouds keep the heat in perhaps. Or perhaps it would be even hotter without them. Probably the latter since “years without summers” happen after major volcanic eruptions.

        Are you saying Greenhouse Gasses act differently than “clouds” as such? Venus has both! So it is a poor example being on both sides of the equation.

        • Tate July 13, 2019 at 5:49 pm #

          Surface temperature of Venus is hotter than sunny side of Mercury, which has no atmosphere. Yet it’s farther from the sun, therefore atmosphere of Venus, 95% CO2, creates the hotter temperatures.

      I think I heard on the news that the Dems in the US Congress have declared a Climate Emergency!

      Breadline Bernie wants a mobilization similar to what the US did to prepare for WW2.

      Its reminds one of the Soviet Union in the 1930s, when the Bolsheviks would whip up the Russian population into a frenzy over this or that project they wanted done, for example, collectivization of agriculture and “the liquidation of Kulaks as a class”, or the building of the Volga Canal. Of course, since it was an emergency, the govt could do anything it needed to do, including mass murder.

      Can you see the day, like in Cambodia in 1970, empowered lefties, led by AOC types emulating Pol Pot, enforcing ‘Climate Change Social Justice Mandates’, sends antifa and MS13 squads into the suburbs to round up whitey (by the millions) drag them from their houses, confiscate their property, turn over the emptied houses to illegal aliens and other political allies, and send whitey into camps in the south and midwest to grow beets and turnips and atone for his Climate Crimes?

      Sure, why not? Does whitey deserve less? Its happened before. Didn’t you ever read Dr. Zhivago? That was pretty much Bill Ayers plan in the 1970s. Its whats happening right now pretty much in SAfrica.

      Speaking of weather, so far its been a lovely summer, not too hot, cool at night … and then there’s this: Long Island Sound is in the North Atlantic, it takes a long time for the water to warm up in the summer. Historically it reaches 70°F at the end of the first week in July. This year it reached 70 on July 7, right on schedule.

      No ‘Climate Emergency’, at least this summer.

          Vlad, Newport was a pirate haven in the 17th and early 18th century. Everybody in town was in some way linked to pirate raids in the Indian Ocean, the Red Sea, the Caribbean, the Spanish Main, the Canadian Atlantic Coast, and Africa. Slave trading was just another way of making money, part of the pirate round, part of the world economy of the time, an important part. Yes, some Jewish families in Newport RI were involved in the slave trade, as were the few Catholic families extant. Overwhelmingly, the slave traders in Newport were Calvinists, and it ended sbout 1726. Why just focus on ‘the Jews’. They were small time players.

            So why did you listen to it in the first place? Do you like listening to salacious gossip then pretending you don’t?

            Don’t tell me, they tied you to a bed and forced to listen?

            You were covering your eyes and ears and shouting ‘la la la’ but it wasn’t enough? The yuk forced its way into your consciousness anyway?

            You poor thing.

    I watched it happen on the television and then spent 58 years reading everything I could about it == Walter B

    No doubt that the JFK was killed for failing to start a nuclear war with Russia during Caribbean Missile Crisis and consenting to USSR to withdraw Atlas missiles from Turkey.

    And he was killed by the same people who brought you the Russia Gate circa 2016/19 – people working for the Fourth Reich and who dream of starting a war between two former allies who defeated Reich the Third.

    There is one interesting quirk though!

    I am convinced that JFK himself was a member of that sect (later headed by Hillary Clinton) early in his life, but repented and got out and was killed for his betrayal. (that explains the merciless persecution of the Kennedy family members).

    That is how the principle entrance is a dollar, but exit is a hundred works.

    And that means John Fitzgerald Kennedy died as a martyr for Christ!

      The Secret Societies speech, eh? If we can look at ourselves and our societies objectively, and with even a little bit of insight, it is pretty obvious that human beings tend to socialize with those fellow humans that fit in to the same socio-economic classes and circles as they do. I cannot image Bill Gates sharing a spliff with a circle of homeless beggars outside a Starbuck’s in LA or Homeless Harry vacationing on the Rivera with Prince Harry. No, social class and economic achievement pretty much dictates the circle of friends that we hang with. So if there are a number of extremely wealthy, powerful individuals, families, and organizations out there somewhere, it is only logical to think that they talk to each other a lot and probably get together occasionally. Do they really form clubs, societies, and other such groups to advance their own interests and agendas and keep the wealth coming in strong? Ha, ha, ha what a conspiracy theory! Conspiracy theorist – count me in!

        My turn to admit that I do not know what the hell are you talking about.

          • Walter B July 13, 2019 at 10:05 pm #

            “For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence on influence on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day.”

            He made one allusion to secret societies. I took it overall as an exhortation to the media to be responsible. It was a homily to the press, after you strip away all the verbiage, to treat the Cold war as a hot war.

            My question looking back with the perspective of almost 60 years is, who was the real enemy?

            I for one do not believe that the real enemies are the men, the pawns who work to bring about suppression and tyranny to the people, but rather those dark malevolent forces that are behind them.

            “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” “

          • Tate July 14, 2019 at 1:22 pm #

            You are correct Walter in the abstract, but we can’t fight against principalities & powers, the rulers of darkness, & spiritual wickedness in high places without engaging flesh & blood, even though it be not the real enemy,

            “Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, & having done all, to stand.”

            So what is the “whole armor of God?” Can it be limited to words & gentle persuasion?

          • Walter B July 14, 2019 at 5:59 pm #

            I suppose the whole armor of God “may” be limited to turning the other cheek, but forgiveness is achievable, so standing firm and fighting back to whatever end remains a choice that will not necessarily cost us everything.

          • Tate July 14, 2019 at 6:32 pm #

            “May” be limited? “Not necessarily cost us everything?” Not necessarily cost us everything? Walter, you should know better.

    White, Christian, Heterosexual Men, the best people, the Cream of Creation, have been turned into the Niggers of the New World Order. How perverse is that? And the Worst people have risen to the top – thus the persecution of the best. We tried to warn our Brothers not to wage War on Nationalist Germany, but they wouldn’t listen. This now is the bitter fruit of the brother’s war.

    Sakharov Plan 2

    In the previous post, I talked about the so-called “Sakharov Plan” – the use of a thermonuclear explosion to generate mega-tsunami, which would cause unacceptable damage to a potential enemy, washing away the East coast of the USA. And probably no one paid attention to the standard formula “unacceptable damage”.

    First of all, I want to draw your attention to the fact that the “unacceptable damage” formula contains an explanation of the emerged situation, since the damage caused by Soviet thermonuclear warheads was unacceptable to the Pentagon, which introduced the term.

    And the question immediately arises: why should Soviet missile men be concerned about what is acceptable for the Pentagon and the US leadership, and what is not.

    The fact of the matter is that the Pentagon has always known and built its military strategy with the expectation that the USSR will never strike a nuclear blow first, and the unacceptable damage to the USA would be a strike back from the USSR, and it becomes unacceptable because it makes unacceptable for the US leadership to deliver the first disarming strike on Russia.

    It would be completely wrong to assume that, according to Sakharov’s plan, the tsunami is attacking the United States for no reason at all, that is, because of the natural evil of the communist regime, and now because of the natural evil of Putin.

    Naturally, within the framework of such assumption, Sakharov’s plan does not make any sense, also because the mega-tsunami travels to the coast for several hours and during this time the country’s leadership will be evacuated to a safe place with a red button in their hands.

    But the fact of the matter is that according to Sakharov’s plan, thermonuclear charges that generate mega-tsunami explode only after the explosion of several US nuclear warheads on Russian soil or the mass launch of American nuclear missiles and the inevitable death of tens of millions of Russian citizens.

    Sakharov proposed not to serve the Washington strategy for the destruction of the Soviet Union by the arms race. He advocated placing nuclear charges of 100 megatons each along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of the United States. And with aggression against Russia or its friends, push the buttons.

    100 megatons is certainly nonsense, but this quotation shows the main goal of Sakharov’s plan – evading an arms race, which, if drawn in, contributed to the victory of the West in the Cold War and played an important role in the collapse of the USSR.

    And none of the notorious humanists shed a tear at the tens of millions of Soviet citizens who have disappeared who knows where as a result of this collapse.

    And now this question is all the more relevant because after Trump’s victory over Hillary, who thirsts for a hot war, the Black World Project will not go anywhere and will try to entangle Trump in the new Cold War with Russia, in which the newest Russian missiles will not be able to protect the Russian Federation more than UR-100 and Pioneer missiles protected the USSR.

    But Poseidon and Losharik, if they are some continuation of Sakharov’s plan, will be able to!

    So it’s not for nothing that the fire on Losharik blew up the internal political situation in the United States, and if it was sabotage, it showed that US Attorney General Barr and the federal prosecutor Durham might not have enough time to finish their investigation in the beginning of the Mueller’s investigation.

    That is why four days after this “sabotage”, financier, philanthropist and registered pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was arrested in the US, the strings from whom stretch to the most intimate, most secreted parts of the Deep State.

    And just today it became known that the refusal of the leadership of the USSR to consider Sakharov’s plan played an important role in the development and rooting of pedophilia in the United States, and apparently it was the Black World Project that provoked the discussion of this topic, just as Hillary Clinton herself forced Donald Trump to nominate his candidacy for the President of the United States.

    Well, in Hartford, it looks like the cease fire lasted only 24 hours, if there was a cease fire. Rumors of another casualty last night, a fatal one. No details as of yet. Somebody else was gunned down in New Haven last night too which might mean the intertribal war, if that’s what it is (could be just random killing, for the fun of it, Why not?) is spreading statewide. If that’s the case we got a problem on our hands; plenty of summer and hot weather left.

      Your stories bring back fond memories of my youth growing up in a low income housing project in Brooklyn. By the time I moved out I was the very last white person and it was a very large project.

      It was a very dangerous place to live and I am lucky to make it out alive.

      I would bet I had more fights than all the people on this site times three!

      • Tate July 13, 2019 at 6:58 pm #

        You could be right. I had a few fights growing up, but only once as an adult. With a Black dude, no less, who had just been released from a mental institution as it turned out (just your everyday ‘crazy nigger’). Walking down the street minding my own business & he decided for some reason to come up & hit me in the back of the head. Maybe to him I represented ‘the Man?’
