Nostalgia for the Mud

“Resentful childless harpies unconsciously longing for domination. Why else worship at the altar of Hamas? Why else would it be so overwhelmingly female?” — Dr. Jordan Peterson

     Wasn’t it cute how the youngsters who “occupied” Columbia U’s Hamilton Hall — and were busy smashing things up inside — demanded restaurant-grade meals sent in to avert “starvation and dehydration” amongst their dauntless ranks? You could imagine a colossal mommy breast with three hundred nipples descending from the sky over upper Manhattan to nourish them back to action. “Feed me. . . !”

     It turns out, actually, that at least half the troops inside were not students at all, but rather semi-pro activists paid up to $7,000 each by George Soros’s Open Society Institute and other overtly insurrection-themed orgs, so you’d think that the troops could afford to load-up their ever-ready backpacks with Clif bars and bottles of Smart Water. The order-in food and beverage gambit suggests we should understand that this is not so much politics as the acting out of a game — which is exactly what you might expect of people who spend more time on video screens than in the real world — in which something like a half-time intermission for refreshments is de rigueur.

     Alas, they were not obliged with DoorDash servings of Alitcha (“Ensemble of potatoes, carrots, collard greens, and cabbage baked in turmeric,” $22.30) from the nearby Massawa Ethiopian bistro, or Firecracker Chicken from Junzi Kitchen over on Broadway and 113th Street. And then, when the cops came to roust them out into the big buses now used as paddy-wagons for such events, the occupiers were heard to whine, “I have finals and I need to go home!” You’ve got to wonder how they’ll make out when “Joe Biden” drafts their ass to go fight the Russians out on the Ukrainian buzzard flats, about which the White House is just now sending out early signals.

     It has been observed that a clear majority of the pro-Hamas activists are young women — which makes sense considering that they are the largest demographic evincing mental illness on America’s social landscape these days. Thus, they are marching in support of a sect that specializes in the rape, mutilation, and murder of young women like themselves, or at least treats them as chattels, hidden under black bag-like garments. The group psychology on display has more occult angles than any movie by the Wachowski sisters.

      Among the marching Columbia students who are not paid outside activists, a few are apparently Jewish, such as spokesperson Johannah King-Slutzky (actual name, hat-tip Alex Berenson, who ID’d her), the winsome creature who complained about the lack of order-in meals at Hamilton Hall. Another observer on “X” who styles himself @J9_ATX identified the syndrome in play as “oppression envy,” among women seeking compensatory validation for occupying such a privileged niche on Planet Earth as a cushy Ivy League college — featuring international cuisine stations in the dining halls — while their third world sisters trudge through the burning sands of Al-Kufra carrying water-jugs on their heads as they dodge the odious “wind scorpions” of the region.

     Higher Ed in the USA was already chugging down the suicide track before this spring’s eruption of pro-Hamas fury. The college loan racket (government-backed) had the perverse effect of pumping up tuition costs beyond what even many pretty well-off families could afford, while loading up young people with life-wrecking obligations (debt which “Joe Biden” is now shifting onto the creditors, US tax-payers). Decades of DEI have filled the faculties with incompetents and assorted malcontents teaching fantasy curricula with no real-life value, and burdened the schools with cadres of overpaid diversity busybodies and thought-police. Diversity college presidents are very publicly failing to cope. The whole rotten train is going off the rails.

      I’m not at all sanguine that the society we are becoming will need this vast infrastructure for babysitting young adults who could otherwise make themselves useful and productive on-the-ground in lines of work that actually keep civilized life going. This is too self-evident now to belabor, though there is an awful lot of confusion about what kind of society we might become.

     I doubt that it is to be the utopia of robots, A-I, and non-stop sexual titillation that the techno-narcissists dream of. Rather, it will be a society struggling to keep too much complex stuff running with insufficient energy resources and capital — that is, a society falling apart, losing knowledge, technical know-how, comfort, and convenience while having a hard time feeding itself.

       The campus Hamas zealots ironically (and tragically) represent exactly the sort of rough medievalism that the citizens of Western Civ countries would be chary of sliding into. You’d have to sadly conclude that many young people really can’t take much more Modernity, and are now pretty avid to opt out of it, even as they gaze into the magic, glowing pixels of their iPhone screens.

    The disconnect within the muddled brains of these young women is really hard to grasp. They spend half their time railing about women’s rights/empowerment, and the other half screaming in support of the most misogynistic group of people on the planet.

    • fugeguy May 3, 2024 at 10:31 am #

      It is almost as if most women (not all) are totally emotionally driven and devoid of logic. Go figure.

      • Cankerpuss May 3, 2024 at 10:56 am #

        They are emotionally driven and devoid of logic. It is their biological nature. Hence the reason the founding fathers didn’t want them to vote. They don’t think the same way men do. I’m not saying its better or worse, I’m saying that women think and react differently. Emotions govern their actions. Not logic. It’s as they were designed by whoever created them. The problem today is women are out of their element. They are confused and lost and angry, feelings of betrayal and resentment dominate their thoughts. So they lash out in rage and support the very cultures that would have them covered in burlap except for their eye slits, deny them education, cut out their clitorises and treat them less than the dogs.

        There is no other way to explain their behavior.

        • megabeth May 3, 2024 at 11:43 am #

          I tend to agree; women are more about the feels, in general. And perhaps more Machiavellian, in general. I confess that I vote and will keep on voting, but I try to vote with my loved ones (husband and son) in mind, among other things, stripped of the srcond-wave feminism I was raised on.

          I think that most women function best in their traditional roles, where possible, as mothers, housewives, caregivers, husband supporters, soothers and mediators. Yin to the guys’ yang. Very tired of the “stærke kvinne” self-congratulations—it is needlessly hostile to men.

          • Cankerpuss May 3, 2024 at 12:12 pm #

            There are many women who are part of this commentariat who would readily disagree with me and what you just said. Many women who believe that they can have a great career as a paper pusher somewhere and still have a great marriage and be a fantastic mother. Problem is, that is not true. It’s either the one or the other. Biology tells them one thing. Society tells them another. They don’t know which way to go. They feel emptiness of their wombs as time ticks on but they are told they can only be fulfilled if they are taking orders from a boss in some office somewhere. They are being pulled apart not knowing which way to go. Hence the insanity. The anger. The rage.

            They insist upon blaming the men when in reality the ones they should be blaming are those of their own sex. Women themselves are the harshest critics of women who gravitate to the more traditional roles.

          • ezinmn May 3, 2024 at 12:18 pm #

            MB – I don’t disagree in general, but I must say there are some tough conservative gals in our country whose chutzpah far exceeds most of our male leaders. Maybe that’s what our country needs?

          • megabeth May 3, 2024 at 12:48 pm #

            Cank,

            I got sold the bill of goods and waited too long to start a family. I did not plan on having so many miscarriages. So I was grateful to be able to afford staying home when my son was young. I pity women who can’t afford it. I, for one, am really teed off about having made poor decisions and having listened to the Betty Freidan types.

            It’s *great* to have a career and work outside the home, although I do not understand a certain subset of families who are already well off yet farm their babies and toddlers out to day care. That is a horrible trip to lay on a baby. And then being able to push paper rather than care for the baby seems like a bad deal.

            One thing Elizabeth Warren did right, years back, was to lay out an economic rationale for one-earner families.

          • Nigel Tufnel May 3, 2024 at 2:47 pm #

            Megabeth – I feel the same way –
            I was sold a bill of goods way back during my reproductive days, the 1970’s, – that the USA was overpopulated and short of resources, and that if you loved this planet and this country, your choices were either to have no kids (best) or one… two at most. That was a lie.
            Sadly, I listened. Now this country is importing millions and millions of illegal aliens who breed like flies. Is it to prop up a failed economic system of infinite growth on a finite planet?

            (Full disclosure, my real avatar name is Nigella.)

          • pranah May 3, 2024 at 4:07 pm #

            Cankerpuss, not all women want to be all that, and not every woman drives herself crazy trying to do everything. I for one was happy to have the choice to be childfree, and not to have to get married, and to be able to have a career. I was able to live a productive life and i’m grateful to have been born when and where I was. We’re out there. Maybe you just never noticed.

          • Paula D May 4, 2024 at 8:17 pm #

            What difference does it make if you reproduce or don’t, if you look at your entire life?

            No matter how much time you put into raising your kids, at some point they grow up and move out.
            Then they never write, they never call.

            You have a whole life after kids, which is remarkably like peoples who never had kids.

            Even my grandmother who had 10 kids lived for 30+ years after the last one moved out.

            Nigel, are you seriously sorry you never reproduced, when you see what is happening to your country?

            I would think you would look at what’s going on, and heave a big sigh of relief that you don’t have to worry about your offspring getting offed by some criminal lately come over the border, or ODing on whatever drug de jour the CIA is pushing this year.

        • Jarek May 3, 2024 at 12:40 pm #

          You’re not saying it’s better or worse? Lol, that’s weak. The Fathers, Protestant divines, Hindu ascetics, Catholic saints, and Mormon elders had no trouble saying it was worse or lower.

          The best women transcend all this and attain unto reason – without losing their feminine nature – the good parts that is.

        • Anthea May 4, 2024 at 8:04 pm #

          @ Cankerpuss:

          The women you’re talking about here are college kids. (And, as I mentioned previously, no one has given us any numbers as to how many of the “protestors” are men, versus how many are women. JHK makes it sound like they’re all women, which I doubt, and he has provided no figures.

          Both men and women at that age are “devoid of logic.” This is mainly due to bad formation: They’ve been systematically taught and conditioned to function on pure emotion. Our whole culture is steeped in this. Plus there is a secondary problem, in that young people today are expected to remain children until they are about thirty. The media and social media influences on them are horrendous: Drew Barrymore and Kim Kardashian for the girls, and porn and video games for the boys, as role models. And what percentage of them are on psychotropic drugs?

          It’s hard for me to see either the girls or the boys as suitable marriage partners or parents. Mentally and emotionally, they’re still in diapers. You naturally suspect that the kids attending our most prestigious universities are probably among the worst in that department.

          Anyway, my point is that you are not talking about grownups, or indeed even regular people, like the ones you or I might encounter in real life. At least I don’t encounter such people. Maybe you know more rich people than I do.

          Most of the women I know are quite a bit more clear-thinking and logical than their husbands. For example, a couple of years ago, one of my sons-in-law gave everyone in the family a copy of The Secret. We were all very polite about this. Nobody laughed at him–at least not to his face.

          But the women in my family–my daughters, that is–are terrifyingly efficient, logical, analytical. The men are the ones who are the dreamers, whose grounding in reality seems at times imperfect.

      • abbybwood May 3, 2024 at 1:37 pm #

        I’m still trying to figure out why Bibi was funneling millions in cash to Hamas through Qatar?

        Guess he’s “pro-Hamas” too??

        • Mac May 3, 2024 at 3:00 pm #

          Abby- It’s because Hamas also opposed a two state solution, as did Bibi.

      My favorite placard said:

      TRANSWOMEN FOR HAMAS

      Hamas has a practice called ‘Defenestration’ where they take Trannys and Homosexuals up onto the roof of high buildings … and toss them off.

      Transwomen in NYC might be for Hamas, but Hamas in Gaza are most assuredly not for Transwomen.

      • Anon1970 May 3, 2024 at 11:45 am #

        WTF

    • zekesdad May 3, 2024 at 11:16 am #

      I’ve been reading a very interesting book about how we got here. It’s called “The Long March: How the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s Changed Everything” by Roger Kimball. It was published in 2000, but it throws a lot of light on what’s happening today.

      Having grown up in the 1960s I had a somewhat vague awareness of the substance of what people like Allen Ginsburg, Norman Mailer, and Timothy Leary were really about. The author’s main point is that love beads and bell-bottom blue jeans may be cultural artifacts, but the nihilism and utopian narcissism of that era have been firmly embedded in the culture. I don’t know if Roger Kimball is still around, but his prophetic analysis is spot-on. Note: I waited over a week to get this book from Amazon before I cancelled the order, but was able to get it from Barnes & Noble in a couple of days.

      • megabeth May 3, 2024 at 11:33 am #

        Kimball still writes. Can’t say I care for his style; he picked up where George Will left off.

    • Nigel Tufnel May 3, 2024 at 2:32 pm #

      In short, what these women really want, deep down, is to be fucked and pregnant. It proves that the primordial limbic brain governing reproduction always ‘trumps’ the more recent frontal lobe which governs our intellect.

      • TruthSeeker1986 May 4, 2024 at 6:41 am #

        @Nigel

        Not really, if they did most women wouldn’t be advocating for abortion rights.

      • rightmom May 4, 2024 at 6:27 pm #

        Well they do want that deep down but some won’t ever recognize it, except the happy mothers of many.

    • Anthea May 3, 2024 at 3:22 pm #

      Well, I don’t know if others here have noticed or not, but there has been a relentless attempt to represent the pro-Israeli/Zionist position in this conflict as the position with which conservatives should ally themselves–and, likewise, to portray opposition to genocide and support for the Palestinians as the liberal position. (I would go so far as to suspect that the funding for these demonstrations on college campuses and elsewhere actually comes from Zionists, as a way to make the pro-Palestinian camp offensive to conservatives.)

      Most of these efforts to convince conservatives that the Israelis are their pals and natural allies have fallen to the ground. (Victor Davis Hanson has been indefatigable in this cause, and I notice that his readers over on Zerohedge are having none of it.) This is a tough sell, when Jews in the US are the very bastion of the left, and have been since Heck was a pup.

      So, what we have in JHK’s article is an attempt along these same lines, but using an entirely new tack. Instead of representing the Palestinian cause as leftist–and therefore odious–he’s representing it as effeminate and emotion-driven. (Admittedly, one does find that ones dislike for genocide is touched by emotion.)

      And of course, the men here, taking the bait, have evinced the desired (and predictable) emotional reaction.

      • messianicdruid May 3, 2024 at 6:18 pm #

        You should have said ‘males’. Men’s emotional reactions have not yet occured.

      • Rick Babley May 3, 2024 at 6:23 pm #

        Kunstler, in an earlier post, also intimated that because Muslims are invading Europe and threatening to overrun European culture, that’s just cause to commit genocide against middle easterners in their own lands. So the elites enable the invasion of Europe and then invoke sympathy for genocide.

    • Anthea May 4, 2024 at 6:38 pm #

      @ JackStraw:

      Well, with all due respect, this is precisely the (ahem) emotional reaction this article is intended to produce.

      Zionists and Israel find themselves in a bit of a fix. After spitting on traditional American values (and the values of honor, honesty, and decency in general) for the past hundred years or so, they find that…surprise!…conservative Americans have no loyalty to them, and do no reflexively support Israel (…and all its works, and all its pomps….).

      Hence, there is an urgent need to figure something out. How to sway them? How to herd them back into the pro-Israel camp?

      Several approaches have been attempted. One is the barrage of articles (Victor Davis Hansen has emitted a snowstorm) attempting to equate support for Israel with conservative values.

      The protests on college campus are a more recent gambit: Pay a bunch of obnoxious people–obnoxious especially to conservatives–to camp out and emote and impede the business of education and the lives of the students, for the purpose of promoting the Palestinian cause and opposing the Israeli genocide. This is a pretty sure method for making conservatives unfriendly–if not downright irritable–about Palestinians. Notice that about half of the “protestors” on George Soros’ payroll (or the payroll of some related group). The people writing the paychecks are Zionists. They are paying for this theatrical production because they believe it will benefit them.

      Of course, JHK has reminded us that we must oppose the Palestinian genocide because many of the protestors are from the distaff side–though I don’t think anyone has provided any actual numbers as to the number of men versus the number of women so employed. But, hey, JHK says it’s the girls who are behind this.

      He also accuses the protestors (who he has already assured us, without evidence, are the ladies) are “emotion-driven.” God forbid anyone should get all worked up about genocide. If you find that sort of thing horrifying, well, you must be a girl.

      So, at the risk of being unsubtle, I gotta tell you straight out that the article is plain, everyday manipulation. This is the kind of stuff you should have learned to recognize in high school.

      • Paula D May 4, 2024 at 8:52 pm #

        Men don’t react from emotion, Anthea, or so they tell us.

        The men on here reacting are doing so out of completely logical reasons, unswayed by the propaganda campaign now playing out on all media.

        • Anthea May 5, 2024 at 11:03 am #

          @ PaulaD:

          Interestingly, if you look at the comments on Zerohedge, many of those posting are very much alert to the emotional manipulation. I suppose many of these comments are coming from men. There seems to be more of a tendency, around here, for the men to lack emotional control, and to readily respond to appeals to emotion.

  2. NickelthroweR May 3, 2024 at 9:35 am #

    Greetings,

    The destruction of the USA is not a bug but a feature. Case in point: I have a buddy that works at a local power plant. It is a clean-coal power plant. They received notice this week from the Biden administration that they have to upgrade their systems with technology that hasn’t yet been invented or shut down. Keep in mind that this plant is already 99.97 percent clean emission but that isn’t enough.

    Another coal fired plant 10 miles up the road took a buyout from the Biden administration and has already shut down. Just to make sure it can not be reopened, the docks and other important infrastructure were immediately destroyed. All of this is on top of a tin mill (you know, to package all those cans of beans) that was shut down by some world governing organization.

    My buddy who works at this plant has worked there for 20 years and was planning to ride it out until retirement. I had breakfast with him yesterday and he was just gobsmacked. “We provide power to hospitals, schools, nursing homes, police stations, and the airport. How can they just shut us down like that?”

    I should also mention that he is one of those guys who thinks my prepping is ridiculous and that his position, income, and retirement are untouchable. Well, he has had his world rocked by this as the power plant and the now-closed tin mill are the only big employers around here. His big fancy house will join all the others that can be had for a song or will just fall into ruin.

    The people governing us hate us with all of their demonic hearts. Perhaps the 15-minute cities will have some power but small-town conservative America can go pound sand.

    • Beryl of Oyl May 3, 2024 at 9:49 am #

      Nickel, I’m seeing a lot of what you describe up my way.

      People really puzzled over what their government is doing, and believing if they just point this out clearly enough, other good citizens will rally to their side and TPTB will listen to the people.

      It makes me want to cry.

        I have to wonder if all the people buying electric vehicles know that the power grid is being dismantled. You can’t outlaw ICE engines and dismantle your power plants at the same time and expect a rosy result.

        I fled SoCal into Appalachia just weeks before the lockdowns. The people I spoke with when I first arrived must have thought me out of my mind when I explained why I gave up my home at the beach where I could hop on my bicycle and ride past Oprah’s house and the other celebrities they are so enthralled with to move to Appalachia.

        I told them that the people had gone mad and didn’t know which bathroom to use. I told them that stealing had been made legal and that to defend yourself was a crime. I told them business owners had become targets and that hurting one was “justifiable”. I told them that the borders had been thrown open and that criminal gangs were flooding into the country. I told them that we had terrible fires that burnt buildings but left the woods alone. I told them that we had brownouts and rolling blackouts and that the power company shut off our power on windy days.

        My neighbors thought me entirely out of my mind. They said, “those things can never happen here.” They were wrong. They don’t think I’m crazy but a time traveler.

          It doesn’t matter to them that the power grid is being dismantled. They’ve been conditioned not to connect dots, not to connect point A over here with what they’re doing with point B over there. That’s why they can never learn from the past. Every event is a new one, a new crisis, with no past precedent. They’ve only got a vague notion about where electricity comes from, and gosh, they wouldn’t deliberately sabotage that when they want us all to drive electric, would they?

            Gotta admit when I was doing my best to explain to people in early 2020 why making more ventilators was a bullshit narrative, which included explaining that people on ventilators had to be intubated, and sedated, and it took lots of trained people to monitor the patients and the machines, and that ventilators couldn’t be lined up in the hall, because you had to have suction and oxygen, and they didn’t have those in the halls, someone asked me where the oxygen came from, and I said, “From those adaptors in the walls”.
            Why would I know what particular apparatus supplied the adaptors in the walls?
            All I needed to know is that the halls don’t have them, so the whole bullshit about “With enough ventilators, we will save everyone”, was a Big Lie.

          It almost reads like one of those novels about a dystopian future, much like The Artificial Man. That’s where I first ran into a description of vaping, although it wasn’t called that in the book, but that’s what it was. Very prescient. Also, food and housing shortages.

        I don’t know if people are all that puzzled by what the government is doing. I think many people know what is going on. They can sense it deep in their bowels. Things are amiss.

        The problem is they don’t know what to do about it.

        A few years ago a large coal fired power plant near Page, Arizona was closed down sending 400 Navajo people onto the dole.

        In Kemmerer, Wyoming there is another large coal fired power plant that is slated for closer in the next few years.

        In the meantime China is building many coal plants.

        Who will inherit the Earth?

        There is nowhere to flee to, Nickel. The insanity is everywhere and the people just sit there with their thumbs up their asses hoping orange man with nice hair will save them all.

          Not puzzled, CankerPuss.

          The government has but one thing that controls it in this country, the biennial and quadrennial elections that they have to kowtow to the people and campaign.

          They hate it, they want their jobs in perpetuity along with the bureaucracy they support.

          So they are conspiring over time to remove that one control.

          Power people want unrestrained power, it is the hallmark of all socialists and dictators.

Sacrifice yourself defending a criminal regime? At that point in time, anything you might choose to do would have to be in your self-interest because the events in motion were unstoppable.

          The people waiting for Trump to save them are no different than the Germans believing that Wonder-Weapons were going to turn the tide. Sure, those weapons were remarkable but too little, too late.

            Ah, yes. PUA, or Pandemic Unemployment Assistance. Tens of billions of dollars lost to fraudulent unemployment claims that normally would’ve gone nowhere, but were paid because everyone was in a panic: politicians said to pay everyone so they could keep their jobs, while bureaucrats, bankers, and Wall Street demanded the payments so the economy wouldn’t collapse. It was an enormous transfer of wealth from the middle class to the plutocracy, but nobody gives a shit because it allowed them to smoke bowls while streaming tv shows for 2 years. While that information got out, in the last 3-4 years it’s been crammed down the memory hole so we can concentrate on who Trump fucked (figuratively and literally), Putin is Hitler (as long as GGG isn’t in the conversation anyway), and a war in the Middle East where the people who started the war are victims.

          Mike Adams (the Health Ranger) said that it’s cognitive dissonance. People have lived their entire lives expecting certain things from those they elected and appointed to govern them, and when they don’t get those things, or when those officials act in a malignant way toward them, they don’t know what to do about it, especially when they can’t get rid of them through the electoral process, because that’s been hijacked, too.

        And yet, many of these bewildered and benighted fools will still vote demoncommie from the top down. They couldn’t intelligently explain why. They have 4 years of examples of Trump that did no damage and a lot of good. And over 3 years of the horrendous purposeful damage that The Squatter has done. But still believe the trash about Trump being the ruination of “democracy”. Whatever that means. I’d love to hear their definition of the democracy that Trump is going to ruin and how he did just that in his 4 years. I guess the thinking is similar to those refugees running from the demoncommie shithole of California but still insisting on voting for the same failed crap wherever they wind of living.

      The cost of a “clean” (shifting definition) coal power plant is about 20% of its gross output…and that output in turn. Do the reGRETAble power series summation.

      Century Arms offers its US-made VSKA AK-47 rifle – supreme engineering in a budget package, +P chambered. Underwood Ammo offers Controlled Chaos 7.62×39 rounds (lead-free!), or plain full metal jackets, all loaded maximum SAAMI. Ask yourself…who won Vietnam?

        UNCLE: Excellent point, but likely missed by some due to its orthogonal subtly. I would add the following: check out the new Fort Scott Munitions TUI (tumble upon impact) 5.56 ammo in 40 and 62 grains. The 40 grain leaves the muzzle at 4000 fps (not a typo) and shoots shockingly straight at hundreds of yards out. The tumble effect acts like a more accurate version of standard AK ammo, and can penetrate any armor under level IV due to it’s speed.

      Nickel, in your area, where will the electricity be coming from?

      Where I live all baseload power plants are on schedule to be shut down by 2030, less than 6 years from now. Currently we have the highest utility bills in the nation, mostly due to climate activists in State Govt. interfering with the markets. We are assured all our energy needs will be met by Renewables, wind turbines and solar panels. But so far we have only 3 windturbines … and one doesn’t work, permanently. There is an offshore solar project in New London but from day one it’s been steeped in corruption and graft. People have been arrested. That leaves Solar Panels. Thousands of acres farmland, woodlands and meadows are being destroyed to build these ubiquitous ‘Solar Farms.’ My observation is that solar energy is not a good fit for New England we can go weeks without a sunny day. What then?

      • BackRowHeckler May 3, 2024 at 11:31 am #

        What is Lamont smoking these days?

      • cbeard May 3, 2024 at 12:48 pm #

        If the solar panel installations were done only on rooftops, they may help with utility costs and the destruction of arable land. Acres of solar farms make no sense, whatsoever. At least it would help in areas receiving sufficient sunlight. Then you have the greed factor. The big utilities won’t tolerate people having lower power bills. They would just raise their rates to keep up the cash flow. The solar farms are just a utility company smoke screen. All of the politicians are in the pocket of power generators.

All that might sound crazy but if I hopped into a time machine and went back 10 years and wrote on this forum that CPS would come and take your child away for the crime of “Dead Naming” and that the state would then pay to have said child’s genitals removed you’d but me a million dollars that such insanity could never ever happen in the land of the free and the home of the brave yet, here we are.

      • NickelthroweR May 3, 2024 at 2:07 pm #

        It is hard to discuss prepping with people without revealing the preps that I have. I typically approach it in very broad terms with questions like – Do you have the means to heat your home should an emergency happen? Or, Do you have a source for food should the trucks that deliver our food not show up when scheduled? Or, Do you have the means to barter/purchase should those colored plastic cards we all carry around stop working? Do you have access to clean and safe drinking water should it stop coming out of the tap for some reason?

        The answers I get back would make for a good Monty Python skit.

        Take the home heat for example. I asked someone this and they responded that they’d just “cut down some trees” and use the wood to heat their home.
        Do you have a chainsaw? No.
        Do you have an axe? No.
        Do you have any trees on your property? No.
        Do you have a fireplace? No.
        Do you have a wood stove? No.

        This is the level of denial we are facing.

I fear that China/cartel Joe and his leftist stooges have some very severe surprises for us this summer and fall, which the college riots are demonstrating. Antifa, blm, and even the illegal invading mostly military aged men, are getting warmed up for a summer and fall of total chaos all across this once-great nation. The destruction of our country is deliberate and well-financed by Soros, the UN, the Rockefeller Foundation, and even the Biden administration, who apparently do not mind ruling over a wasteland they have created.

        The BLM riots, funded by the George Soros types occurred just a few short years ago. Where was the massive law enforcement presence then?

          Ted Wheeler and Kate Brown wouldn’t allow Trump to send in the feds. Instead, they put targets on the back of local law enforcement, and told them to go out there and take the incoming.

          As it spread throughput the nation, the fear was that if LE stepped in, it would become a race riot. It would be interesting to know who was advising Trump, and what they were telling him at that time.

          Subsequently, Portland PD had been de funded, and currently Portland is peppered with structures that will easily be converted to 15 minute cities.

        Most of the drug adverts seem to be for the new-fangled and expensive biologics category of med. If I recall my pharmacology 101, biologics all screw with the complex and somewhat unknown immune system to, you know, get rid of say, psoriasis.

        As someone with autoimmune problems, I’d avoid all of them if I could (they do help a lot with things like Crphn’s and rheumatoid arthritis), but I suppose there’s a market full of people clamoring for clear skin, and who cares if it brings lymphoma down the road.

    “And sure enough I was right.

    This segment in which new IDW charlatan Konstantin Kisin (American as apple pie) derides Tucker Carlson gives up the game.

    The whole purpose of these charlatan mediocrities is to gain the trust of stupid cattle by conceding basic platitudes like “boys have penises girls have vaginas” or tepidly saying the left has “gone too far” and then using that trust to stick the knife in the right at critical moments

    See for instance Jordan Peterson on covid, on Bret Kavanaugh, and many other examples

    Even though these people are “conservative” compared to the dominant left, they are AGGRESSIVELY promoted by social media algorithms because of their established “de-radicalizing” effect — the idea is to move people away from genuinely subversive right wing voices and get them to listen to slop like Peterson, Lex Fridman, and this new algorithmic creature Kisin

        The same IDF that somehow missed the aggregation of 10,000 rockets and the staging of an invasion force on Oct 7, and then delayed responding to the “invasion” for eight hours. Not exactly a par performance for the world’s most advanced intelligence apparatus.

        The civilian body count in Gaza is north of 30,000. The IDF needs to “try harder” I guess.

      • DrTomSchmidt May 3, 2024 at 10:58 am #

        Amazing. You forgot the great blessings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

        Was it necessary to commit war crimes (which we charged the Germans with for bombing civilians) to defeat Germany and Japan? The Russians may have raped their way through Eastern Europe (they were “good” rapes because they were our allies) but they weren’t a bunch of arsonists.

        And since you cited WW2 war crimes, we point out how rape was used by our allies. Surely you must admit that rape by Hamas is thus legitimate?

      • ezinmn May 3, 2024 at 12:50 pm #

        Seems like straight forward war logic to me Lyndy33. It’s hard to avoid civilian casualties when your enemy holes up in hospitals and schools. Hamas needs to surrender, give up their weapons, and release any remaining hostages. And don’t cut their arms off first.

        Part of rooting out punks on college campus and thieves and murderers who go unpunished, is to enforce the laws society has in place. It’s the same way Giuliani cleaned up NYC. Cut the BS and do the right thing. No apologies. Don’t worry about being called names.

        The criminals running our government can be taken down as well. We will choose to either be part of the problem, or part of the solution.

        Focus on the first part of the statement: Civilians are fair game. This is the Israeli position.

    • Beryl of Oyl May 3, 2024 at 10:44 am #

      There is controversy over those convoys.

      Some say that Hamas has taken over the convoys, and is selling the food.

      Some say Israel was tricked into attacking one such vehicle by Hamas.

      Some say that Israelis are hijacking the food and throwing it on the ground.

      There is even proof, a fat guy wearing a yarmulke throwing bags of flour or something off the back of a truck and then walking around in it.

      What we hear heavily depends on who we hear it from, and what independent and unbiased news sources are over there reporting?

        They sound like the crap we see coming out of Iran.

        Anyone supporting Palestinians should be screaming to the rooftops accept the ceasefire from Israel, renounce ties to Hamas and spit Hamas forth.
        Get to the bargaining table and create your new welfare state of Palestine and for Gods sake quit having so many babies.

        They keep saying they are pro-Hamas.

        That’s one of the main objections to the protests.

        “Free Palestine” is one thing, protesting in support of an organization dedicated to wiping out Jews is another.

        I know for fact that there are people supporting the protests who do not understand that distinction.

        • DrTomSchmidt May 3, 2024 at 1:51 pm #

          I’m sure there are quite a few people who want to kill Jews protesting, Beryl. Probably a few who are doing it for Hamas, too. From what I’ve seen, a lot of people are just there todo, as Biden would say, the thing.

          I can easily see the protests are anti-Israel. I don’t see that as pro-Hamas, which seems to be the kind of organization that gets support the way the Nazi government got support late in the war.

      • Jarek May 3, 2024 at 12:58 pm #

        Yeah that’s ridiculous, Tom. Try to pose your objections more cogently.

        • DrTomSchmidt May 3, 2024 at 1:57 pm #

          So, are they passing around contribution cups to support Hamas? That would be pro-Hamas.

          The protests are clearly anti-Israel. Had JHK called them that, rather than using MSM spin of “pro-Hamas,” and quoting drug addict Jordan Peterson to that effect, I’d be less concerned here.

          I know maybe 2 Palestinians and quite a few more Israelis. I’ve watched Netanyahu throw away the world’s sympathy for the outrage on October 7th, to the point that countries are cutting relations with Israel. I suspect he is doing so for his own political survival. His actions have led to a LOT of civilians getting killed, and it’s going to get the State of Israel destroyed.

          At this point I’m hoping the Nation of Israel survives him.

            @DrTomSchmidt

            first they had better disarm their nuclear weapons before they attempt to do anything directly to Israel.

          • Beryl of Oyl May 3, 2024 at 2:46 pm #

            Yelling in support of Hamas and wearing Hamas headbands could be interpreted as pro-Hamas, also when people say they support Hamas it could be interpreted that way.

            Yes this is based on anecdotes but so is saying they are anti-Israel but not pro-Hamas.

            As I’ve said, there are people against the conflict who don’t know the difference between being against genocide and being pro-Hamas.

            In any case we don’t know who’s who at the protests, we can only guess.

    • BoomerDoomer3 May 3, 2024 at 2:16 pm #

      For a counter to those who are pro-genocide, please read the featured Giraldi article at unzdotcom.

      1st paragraph:

      “Well friends, the verdict is in! If you are opposed to Israel’s slaughter of something like forty thousand Palestinians, mostly women and children, or the clearly enunciated plans by that nation’s government to ethnically cleanse the rest of historic Palestine, making the developing Eretz or Greater Israel a legally Jewish state, and are prepared to protest or speak up about it, then you are an antisemite Jew-hater and probably even a holocaust denier. If you are a student demonstrating against the slaughter you are increasingly being referred to by talking heads and the media as a pro-Hamas terrorist. That you must be condemned and sanctioned or even criminalized as a consequence of the labels is only fair in a country that apparently has come to believe that Jews and Israel, uniquely, cannot be criticized due to their cited ad nauseam victimhood and their anointment by God no matter what the First Amendment to the US Constitution relating to freedom of speech might say. After all, it’s just an old piece of paper though it might strike some as a bit odd that a group of people carrying out a genocide are being given a pass while those trying to stop it are being beaten, going to jail and, in some cases, being denied that degree they earned from four years at college.”

      • Beryl of Oyl May 3, 2024 at 2:47 pm #

        I see the students being referred to as childish, uninformed, spoiled, ugly, but not pro-terrorist.

        • benr May 5, 2024 at 10:53 pm #

          Typically, they are chanting Death to Israel and Death to America.

    Instead of paying off the unpayable debt of student loans out of government funds, a good portion of which is borrowed or created out of nothing, confiscate the foundations of the Ivy League colleges and use that to pay off the bad student loan debt.

    Since we actually need some people with higher education – nowhere near the numbers we are training in higher education – I suggest that the government use the remainder of the confiscated foundation funds to pay the tuition of the top 10% of high school graduates who want to attend higher ed. Such grants will only be made to those who pass rigorous exams to test their actual knowledge with no allowance for ethnic origin or supposed past injustices suffered by any identity group. Strict meritocracy and limited production of educated elites should be the rule. If you, or your ignorant progeny don’t measure up – too bad!!!!

    Also, pay for training in trade schools for those with demonstrated aptitude for the trades.

    • Cankerpuss May 3, 2024 at 10:41 am #

      Endowment funds for Ivy League Schools:

      Brown University – $6.2 billion.
      Columbia University – $13.6 billion.
      Cornell University – $10 billion.
      Dartmouth College – $8 billion.
      Harvard University – $49 billion.
      Pennsylvania – $21 billion.
      Princeton – $34 billion.
      Yale University – $40 billion.

      Total – $180 billion dollars. Not enough to pay off the student debt which I believe is somewhere in the 2 or 3 trillions. Now, if we took in the endowments from all of the other universities we might be getting somewhere.

    • Beryl of Oyl May 3, 2024 at 10:50 am #

      “Since we actually need some people with higher education”. Thank you!

      Schools are starting to go back to the SATs and the old “competitive” ratings now that DIE has been exposed for what it is.

      I think the federal government should stay out of it almost completely, we still give loads of money to these schools.

      Individual states could have their own scholarship exams, the way it used to be.

      NYS had a “Regents” scholarship exam, that was dumbed down and for all I know it could have been done away with completely.

      Education used to be about knowledge and pursuit of excellence.

    Has it ever occurred to Jim that not all Muslims are men, that some of them are also women? I’ve clearly seen plenty of women at these protest who were in fact Islamic women. But of course we can assume that the women who aren’t muslim is there for the purpose of getting attention from men. But then again, who is the one that brainwashed white women in the first place with interracial shit? It wasn’t Islamic males that’s for sure.

    • Uncle.Al May 3, 2024 at 10:08 am #

      Muslim women are second to goats in Islam. US Women’s Lippers are curiously blind to their Sisters’ oppressions…possibly because Muslim men eschew discussion in favor of lethal masculinity.

      Islam is social order wherein traumatic amputation for “crimes” and generations’ old blood oaths are smoothly lubricated by perpetual homicide. It is a viable, appropriate system wherein potable water is valued above gold.

      • stelmosfire May 3, 2024 at 10:23 am #

        Uncle Al, speaking of traumatic amputations, I see that a judge down in the Pelican State has ruled that a convicted pedophile is to be physically castrated. None of that chemical castration BS. It is within the criminal code of the state. If we had more of these types of sentences it would certainly put a damper on some of this perverted activity.

        • Jarek May 3, 2024 at 1:00 pm #

          • DrTomSchmidt May 3, 2024 at 2:02 pm #

            We know from the distribution of mutations in human DNA that 2/3rds originated with females. That’s only possible if twice as many females have left descendants than males; the number cited by Roy Baumeister is an estimate that 80% of all human females have left offspring, and only 40% of males.

            Somehow the West has greatly skewed this number, with the percentage of childless women at maybe 45%. Muslims do a better job of allowing women to stay closer to the historical 80% number.

          • RD3 May 3, 2024 at 2:19 pm #

    Jim would have us think that the issue in the world at this moment is that the young people demonstrating on college campuses across America are all some combination of stupid, lazy, bought, and simply rotten human beings for protesting against Israel’s reprehensible behavior in Gaza.

    In doing so he is trying to distract us from the real issue: that Israel is committing genocide. Given that fact, the character and motivations of the protesters are literally irrelevant.

    Jim and I are of a similar age and I, for one, am not embarrassed to recall that I participated in protests of this sort against America’s destruction of Southeast Asia. Perhaps we are also all stupid, lazy, bought, and rotten human beings, but history shows that our opposition to the Vietnam War was right.

    I wonder how many more of Jim’s posts are going to consist of attacks against the character and motives of the large majority of the world’s citizens who find Israel’s continuing behavior intolerable, and how long he can hold out before expressing his opinion on the morality of slaughtering innocent women and children?

      Zoltar, I agree with you; the main focus should be on the fact that the Israelis are committing genocide and we are abetting it. Could it be that among the students there are many righteously opposing what we and the Israelis are doing? However, once HR 6090 is passed, it will be illegal to criticize Israel. Such an egregious attack on our First Amendment is what we should be discussing.

      • Zoltar May 3, 2024 at 11:32 am #

        Lars:

        I had also hoped that Jim’s concern today would be defense of our Freedom of Speech, but his unqualified support for Israel, no matter what it does, is more compatible with the proposed Awareness Act, and that is a Rubicon I had hoped never to see crossed.

      I’m not defending Israel, Zoltar, but how is what Israel is doing in Gaza any different than what the USA did in Iraq, Lybia, Syria and Afghanistan after the 9-11 attacks in New York? How many innocents were killed in these sovereign nations that the USA decided to invade? Hundreds of housands? Millions?

      Sure, let’s be silent about the destruction and havoc America has brought to the rest of the world because of a terrorist attack but if Israel does the same thing because of a terrorist attack, it is not genocide.

          Makes me sick.

            Waco was a warning to the church. Koresh was making up stuff [ doctrine, commandments of men ] and helping himself to a religious harem, to fulfill prophecy, of course.

        C’puss

        Let’s not set up any straw men here. I and many others have opposed every illegal, unjustified war that America has waged in our lifetime.

        If anyone on this forum would care to try and justify what we have done to any of the nations the US has victimized, let them have at it.

        The issue at hand is Israel’s genocide of the Palestinians, and I believe my stated position on that issue is unambiguous.

        In troubled parts of the world there are always antecedents that can be claimed to justify atrocities. Lieutenant Calley saw buddies killed by the Viet Cong before committing the My Lai Massacre. The Hutus undoubtedly had legitimate grievances against the Tutsis before slaughtering eight hundred thousand of them in Rwanda.

        The world can see such things for what they are, and those who justify Israel’s current behavior today will ultimately not have done them any favors.

        • Cankerpuss May 3, 2024 at 11:28 am #

          I don’t disagree with you. I hate what is going on over there, Zoltar. I hate war nearly all forms. In my opinion the only justified war is the one where a people engage to defend themselves from the invasion of a hostile force (the USA’s southern border).

          Fact is, I am not over there in Israel or Gaza and am really not qualified to offer an opinion one way or another other than to say that war is evil. Deeply evil. It destroys all and makes a few elites extremely wealthy. I hate all of this.

          What I can say is if we are going to criticize Israel for doing what it is doing then we should be criticizing the good old USA for doing what it has done since WW2 and is still doing throughout the world. How many millions of people have died in a war or a conflict that the United States of America caused or encouraged? Does anybody have that answer?

          • Paula D May 3, 2024 at 12:34 pm #

            I think the estimates range between 20 and 30 million, Cankerpuss, in US wars and blockades since 1945.

            It’s difficult to estimate, because body counts aren’t really kept that well.

        • benr May 3, 2024 at 11:43 am #

          The idea that Israel is the lone aggressor in this is hilarious.
          Israel has at least been willing to come to the table about a two-state solution.
          Hamas refuses every overture of peace.

          What all the Palestinian supporters seem to lack is an understanding of how the pieces fit together.
          One side wants the utter destruction of the other.
          The other side Israel might have the same agenda but I suspect if Hamas and all the other shitty pressure groups (terrorists) before them would have backed off there would be a Palestine.

          Mind you it would still be a cesspool full of angry uneducated people breeding like roaches till there is zero resources left.

          Palestinians for the most part are the dark side of humanity.
          For the roughly 15% of them that just want to live in peace and be left alone hats off to them they have enemies on all sides of them.

          • ezinmn May 3, 2024 at 2:55 pm #

            I agree benr. Hamas put themselves and their people in this situation. There is no attempted genocide either. More BS. Israel has gone out of its way to minimize any civilian casualties. If I had some punk-ass-bitch living next door and they came to my house and raped and killed a family member, would I want them living next door to me? Hamas will be exterminated, not the Palestine people. There is no other way without this flaring up again at a later date.

        • Paula D May 3, 2024 at 12:31 pm #

          You might have opposed those previous genocides, Zoltar, but was there the overwhelming press coverage of your opposition that you see now?

          I went to two demos in Washington, DC to protest the genocide* in Iraq. There were hundreds of thousands of people at both of them, but the only coverage was a blurb in the local section of the Wash Po, for one of them. Otherwise, they were ignored. If a tree falls in the forest, and all that.

          There has to be an agenda for the Mighty Wurlitzer to pull out all the stops, as we see here.
          The worldwide “outrage” at Israel, for bombing Gaza is clearly manufactured, if you have been a witness to previous history, at all.
          I think that there are probably at least two agendas going on, because that is how these psy ops work.

          One, they are getting ready to pull the plug on Israel

          Two, they are going for the destruction of the Bill of Rights in America.

          There might be more going on, but these are the ones being pushed openly, as far as I can see.
          If there are more agendas, they will be rolled out later, unless I’m missing another one now.

          *I used the word “genocide” in Iraq to be consistent with the insistence on using that word for Gaza.
          It is hypocritical to call it “genocide” in Gaza, but “war” in Korea (where the US killed 1/3 of the population and leveled every building, while bombing the irrigation dikes on the way out to starve the remaining population), Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria, and the rest of the lesser known bombing and mass murder campaigns the US has conducted.

          • Beryl of Oyl May 3, 2024 at 12:36 pm #

            I remember those demos in DC.

            Then one morning I glanced at the morning’s headline and, lo and behold, a yuge anti-war protest!

          • Paula D May 3, 2024 at 12:39 pm #

            Are you talking about the ant-war protests in 2003, Paula?

            I remember how the MSM was so thrilled, they couldn’t stop yakking about how they were “embedded with the troops”.

            We started hearing nonstop, the “we have to get behind our troops” mantra.

            You’d tell someone you were against the war and they would say, “We have to get behind our troops”.

          • benr May 4, 2024 at 3:12 pm #

            Saddam was an attack dog who kept trying to slip the leash.
            His final trich was to tell the US he was going to attack another country of slant drilling.
            The US of course ignored it and used that as a reason to clean house of Saddam and his two evil sons.

            Saddam was the strong man Iraq needed but his sons had become a real problem.

            Hindsight is 100% leaving Saddam in power was going to cause other issues.
            He also failed in taking out Iran and was destabilizing the region.

    • Mac May 3, 2024 at 12:27 pm #

      Zolt- I wonder if the survivors in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia agree that your opposition to the Vietnam War was “right.” That said, I wish we would spend our money solely on protecting our borders and global trade and let the tribalists the world over work out their own problems. The idea of simultaneously giving bombs to Israel and humanitarian supplies to Gaza is insane.

      • Paula D May 3, 2024 at 12:37 pm #

        Yeah, sure, the survivors who are still getting blown up by unexploded mines left by the US, and still having deformed babies caused by the chemicals spread by the US, are surely grateful that the US came over to their countries and bombed the hell out of them, killed millions of their countrymen and women, most likely including members of their families, and destroyed the fields and animals that kept them alive.
        I’m sure they give thanks every night before they go to bed, wishing that the US was still around to bomb them in their sleep.

            Not sure of your point, EF.

            If the US should not have attacked those countries, then the whole war is hell line would be irrelevant.

            If your point was, well, once we were over there, with our B-52s and our napalm and our Agent Orange and our mines, no one can complain about the results when we used them, then I disagree with your point.

          • elysianfield May 4, 2024 at 11:00 am #

            Paula,
            My point is that it is…difficult to qualify a war as being just or unjust. It is subjective, and the winners and losers of the war usually have different perspectives.

            War is war. Bad things happen.

          • Paula D May 4, 2024 at 4:24 pm #

            It isn’t difficult to see that the US had no business going thousands of miles away and attacking peasants of small countries who were no threat to the US.

            It boggles my mind that anyone could justify that.
            Of course it was unjustified and unjust.

            We are talking about millions of dead people, which continues to this day.
            And we are talking about environmental destruction which continues to this day.
            And we are talking about deformed babies, which continues to this day.

            And now you go all cultural relativity on me?
            Who can say who was right and who was wrong?
            tt’s all relative, man.

            The Vietnamese, Cambodians and Laotians have a different view than the Americans, because they are the ones who got attacked and murdered, but, you know, It’s all groovy and everyone gets to have their own viewpoint on it.

            I’ll do my thing and you do your thing, and it’s all beautiful, cause no one can say what’s right or what’s wrong.

            Yeah, no.

          • elysianfield May 4, 2024 at 5:21 pm #

            Paula,
            You speak to the results of the war, rather than the causal factors.

          • Paula D May 4, 2024 at 8:46 pm #

            I think I pointed out that there was no reason for the US to go thousands of miles away from our borders, in order to kill millions of peasants.

            That means there was no cause to justify the murders. No causal factor.

            It wasn’t a genocide though, so there’s that. Mass murder isn’t necessarily genocide, as everyone should know.

          Well why is it that the Japanese are still Allies with the U.S? They got hit with a nuclear weapon. TWICE yet look how happy they are to suck some American asshole dry. Besides, can’t they use mine detecting devices to find where these mines are hidden?

          • Paula D May 3, 2024 at 3:52 pm #

            The US has been occupying Japan for the last 78 years, TS.

            They have bases all over that country, taking up land that should belong to the Japanese.

            Same as Okinawa, where citizens protesting the occupation, the rape and murder of their women, and the destruction of their ocean are ignored.

            I highly doubt that the Japanese are happy with the situation, but they are occupied, same as Germany.

            Do you think that the Germans are happy to have their pipelines destroyed?
            But they are forbidden to talk about it by the occupiers and their sycophants.

          • Paula D May 3, 2024 at 3:54 pm #

            I know that the US promised to demine Laos, but they broke that promise. Are you surprised?

    • Anthea May 3, 2024 at 11:44 pm #

      @ Zoltar:

      Yes, the issue at hand is genocide–not whether you like or dislike the people protesting it, or whether they’re obnoxious rich kids, or male or female.

      You have to consider, too, that these protests are almost entirely theater, scripted by whoever paid for it all. It’s not even a real thing, so to speak. It’s a show that someone is putting on for the purpose of swaying your opinion.

      So, duh, someone with a lot of money and power doesn’t want you to like the Palestinians. So they have created an elaborate stage show (or many of them) to make you dislike them and their cause.

      If JHK has bought into it, it’s not because such an argument has merit, but because of his own predispositions. And if his argument–which is basically that opposing genocide is all girlie and emotional, I can only assume that he makes this argument, not because it has merit, but because he figures it will work.

    “You’d have to sadly conclude that many young people really can’t take much more Modernity, and are now pretty avid to opt out of it, even as they gaze into the magic, glowing pixels of their iPhone screens.”

    True that. It’s amazing to me how many twenty-somethings now don’t have driver’s licenses, no plans for the future, and no intent of marrying or having families. With the birth rate in this country now below replacement level, we are truly dying as a society.

    And the new word of the day: “Chary”. Thanks Jim, you broadened my vocabulary again 🙂

      I remember the boys I went to high school with used to buy their own cars if they were mechanically inclined.

      It was a mark of shame if your parents gave you a car, although many of the boys and girls did get to borrow the family vehicle.

      Old sixties cars, which were the ones the boys could afford, lasted a long time if you knew how to fix them, and they did, and they needed to, because those things broke down all the time.

      These young men can’t afford cars, their parents are lucky if they can, and no matter how hard they work the car and the apartment and food and gas to get to work aren’t covered by a single paycheck.

      The MSM tries to promote this as “Boomers'” fault for being able to buy a house in the first place, and for not selling it now.

      Better to get people fighting each other so they don’t fight the real enemies.

      • Cankerpuss May 3, 2024 at 11:18 am #

        Excellent post, Beryl. I still have and drive a 1968 Camaro. It requires constant maintenance but the car is all mechanical and is pretty simple to fix and maintain. Not to mention the car is absolutely beautiful, a piece of art in my opinion. Cars today are dull, drab and they all look alike. If you can’t see the logo on the grille you can’t identify the car. In my day, you could tell a Mustang from a Camaro from a Charger driving by it at 60 miles per hour.

        When I turned 16 it was a rite of passage to get one’s license, buy a car and gain some independence. I spent many an hour tinkering with my father to keep an old truck running. It gave me time to bond with my father and let us have something in common where today’s youth don’t have that.

        I had a good childhood at the tail end of the once great American empire. Now I get to live to see the ultimate demise and watch my children suffer it. My Dad warned me it was coming. He could see the writing on the wall even back in the 70s and 80s. God I miss that man.

          Kids aren’t buying these homes but somebody is. Who has the money to buy these homes? Pay these rents? Somebody does. If nobody was buying them the prices would come down. That’s the mystery to me, someone is buying these homes.

          In my state we are being invaded by California refugees who sell their shanty for millions and come here and pay cash for mini-mansions and drive up the bidding war. In my community simple town homes are now selling for $650,000.00. An average single-family home is $850,000.00. AND THEY SELL!

          California refugees are buying them. I get it. But who is buying up the properties in California for millions? Chinese? Blackrock? Are the Mexicans?

          Every western state that used to be affordable is now being overrun with Californians who bring with them wads of cash. So who is buying up California?

          • Paula D May 3, 2024 at 12:42 pm #

            Chinese and Blackrock are buying the homes, you’re right.

            Same as here in Illinois, where even the farmland is no longer solely owned by farming families.

            Blackrock and others buy it, then the farmers lease it to plant crops.

            You can thank the 401K scam for that. Blackrock, Vanguard, State St. and others have billions of funds to invest, thanks to the privatization of pension funds.

        I have not ever been much of a mechanic, but my dad showed me how to change tires, change the oil, replace the alternator, wire the lights, and how to honk the horn using a piece of metal (usually a coin from the unused ash tray), tapped on the open ring of the broken horn assembly.

        This vehicle had a third-party cruise control unit that my dad installed below the radio. When the unit occasionally malfunctioned, it was a “piece of cheap Japanese trash”, said my dad, but when it worked it was pretty cool. High-tech stuff.

        It used to occasionally die while traveling 65mph on the freeway, and you could start it again while coasting and continue on your journey.

        It also had a built-in trash chute, because the front passenger floor had a rusted-out hole underneath the floor mat. Yes, I know, as a grown-up I know littering is bad and all…but when you’re 16 and it’s the early 90’s, and you just went through the White Castle drive-thru with your friends…you find the humor in what you have, dumb as it was.

        Good times. I miss that piece of shit car.

        Now you have to run a code at the shop to find out what needs to be fixed.

        • Blackbird May 4, 2024 at 12:48 pm #

          When I was in high school, most of us kids had rusted out clunkers, held together with bailing wire and duct tape. I used a length of heavy copper wire to reach behind the driver’s window to pull up the door lock. Didn’t bother to fix it because the rest of the car was sucking up all my paltry minimum wage income. Made me the resident expert at the grocery store where I worked at getting customers into their locked cars.

          Air shocks to keep the back end off the tires because I couldn’t afford to replace the springs. Combined with the rear spoiler, and the general loss of metallic structure, they caused the car to porpoise at speeds above 117 mph, with resulting loss of directional stability.

          A cool emergency exit in the floor just forward of the driver’s seat through which alcohol and other contraband could be dumped while on the run.

          I drive by my old high school now and the parking lot isn’t as full of cars as it used to be. A lot of kids these days don’t seem to care about the freedom a car provides – or any freedom at all as they open portals to their souls via social media. What cars are there seem strangely devoid of rust, and way too new – thank you mommy and/or daddy.

          My first car still appears in my dreams. None of the subsequent ones do. It wasn’t really a car, it was a demon that materialized as the used car lot came into sight. It stole my soul, robbed me, but for some reason known only to itself, kept my body alive.

            Excellent. A lost time…Glad we got a piece of it.

            My Chevette couldn’t go 117mph though.More like 81 when traveling downhill. What were you driving?

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder May 4, 2024 at 9:49 pm #

            In the Chevette’s defense, it was manual trans and rear-wheel drive, and living in Minnesota I could shitty down the street without banking it, and then pull into the driveway sideways and still straighten it out. The tire tracks in the snow (for all to see for weeks) were spectacular.

      With the birth rate in this country now below replacement level, we are truly dying as a society.

      Dear tractorguy / Babies ‘R’ Us,

      With a population less than half of today’s, the US victoriously fought a war that stretched from Japan to Germany. And was so successful economically that it was instrumental in feeding and rebuilding Europe afterward.

          IMHO, the natural flow of Americans entering the workforce is to become more conservative to protect their capital from the tax and spend policies of the Dems, (GOP now too). There is a constant drift to the Right of the political spectrum.

          The Dems understand this and accommodate for it with the university BS and the open border. Right now, the Dems are scared shitless of the polling data on both Blacks and Latinos realizing they were played for fools in 2020 by a chronic liar and his Mob. There is no way they will stop the inflow of future Dem voters. Or change the university structures. Kids are such gullible targets for the bleeding hearts.

            The Jews of America mystify me. The are supporters of the Liberals in spite of the damage Democratic institutions like the KKK (Remember Byrd?) have done to them forever.

            I know a Jewish couple that the husband is as conservative as can be but she is an avowed liberal. Interesting get togethers. She has never given me a good argument for why she is liberal.

            Same with the NYT liberal Jews who favor handouts and Gimme “charity”. Jews are notorious for Taking care of their own, so why do they not favor the conservative Bibi and his zeal for Israeli independence?

            A mystery?

          • Jarek May 3, 2024 at 1:20 pm #

            The KKK was pro-White. Democrats of today are vehemently anti-White. It’s a different party under the same name.

            ““I admit that I have always harbored an exaggerated view of self-importance—to put it bluntly, I fancied myself as some kind of god or an economic reformer like Keynes or, even better, a scientist like Einstein.”3 Expanding on this theme in his 1991 book Underwriting Democracy, Soros said: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood,” fantasies which “I wanted to indulge … to the extent that I could afford.”4 In a June 1993 interview with The Independent, Soros, who is an atheist,5 said he saw himself as “some kind of god, the creator of everything.”6 In an interview two years later, he portrayed himself as someone who shared numerous attributes with “God in the Old Testament” — “[Y]ou know, like invisible. I was pretty invisible. Benevolent. I was pretty benevolent. All-seeing. I tried to be all-seeing.”7 Soros told his biographer Michael Kaufman that his “goal” was nothing less ambitious than “to become the conscience of the world” by using his charitable foundations,8 which will be discussed at length in this pamphlet, to bankroll organizations and causes that he deems worthwhile.”

            “… Soros, who is an atheist,”

          • TPTB-USA May 3, 2024 at 10:14 pm #

            “By no means was this the first time that Soros had aimed to engineer the fall of a government which he deemed oppressive. On several previous occasions, he had used his extraordinary wealth to bankroll popular movements seeking to undermine communist and authoritarian regimes in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Specifically, Soros had funded the training, organization and mobilization of many millions of demonstrators who took part in a series of bloodless political revolutions—commonly known as “velvet revolutions” or “color revolutions”205—that ultimately brought down governments in those regions. Typically, these mobilizations consisted of massive street rallies (sometimes with hundreds of thousands of participants) and carefully coordinated acts of civil disobedience such as sit-ins and general strikes. In several instances, such Soros-funded protesters challenged the results of popular elections and accused incumbent leaders of election fraud—charges which were then echoed by Soros-funded exit pollsters and Soros-funded media outlets, thereby greatly amplifying the effect of the accusations. A brief survey of Soros’s most noteworthy foreign interventions will be useful at this point.”

      Soros is old, so he is passing off his evil deeds to his evil son, Alex.

      “Soros’ son Alexander agreed with the Ukrainian authorities to allocate 400 square kilometers of agricultural land to American corporations for the disposal of hazardous waste, according to an investigation by French journalist Jules Vincennes.
      He writes, citing a source in the Ministry of Agriculture of Ukraine, that in November, Soros Jr. and the head of Zelensky’s office, Yermak, reached an agreement according to which Ki?v indefinitely and free of charge transfers land in the Ternop?l, Khmelnytsky and Chern?vtsi regions for the disposal of hazardous waste from chemical, pharmaceutical and oil production.

      Among the companies named are Dow Chemical, DuPont, BASF, Evonik Industries, Vitol and Sanofi.
      We remind you that Dow Chemical is the company which provided Agent Orange and Napalm to the American military to poison and destroy Vietnam. Whilst BASF is the company which provided Zyklon B to the Nazis.

      This situation threatens an environmental disaster not only for Ukraine, but also for other countries in Eastern Europe and the Black Sea basin as a whole.

      Ki?v and Washington continue to use all means to prevent the possible entry of Western Ukrainian regions into the Russian Federation in the context of the ongoing retreat of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.”

      And yet there are deluded Americans screaming “Slava Ukraine”, convinced by their overlords that bombing, destroying, and selling off Ukrainians and their land for the benefit of the west is the moral thing to do.

      In 60 years, there will still be apologists for these atrocities, ignoring the ongoing birth defects and cancers from the toxic waste dump, still claiming that the US brought “democracy” to Ukraine, just like there are still people supporting the decades-long US onslaught on the peoples of SE Asia.

    Excellent write up today, Jim. Loved it.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again and again. What we are witnessing in today’s America is a people who have had it too good for far too long. Spoiled. Lazy. Decadent. Stupid. Prideful. Silly.
    Greedy. Ignorant. Arrogant. Current generations no longer know what it is like to go hungry. They don’t know the meaning of the word “sacrifice.” They don’t know real work. They don’t know how to produce anything. They don’t know what it is like to suffer, struggle and want.

    A people who have had it so good for so long start to feel useless if not guilty for such a circumstance. They lose their purposes in life and lose track of the little things that make us feel better about our measly existence.

    For example, I love to garden and I grow a great garden. After enduring a frustrating day in the feminized work place where I avoid making contact or speaking with the women I work with, I go home and work in my garden. Getting my hands in the soil, working the soil so it will support vivacious plants gives me subtle joy that these jerks at the colleges cannot understand. There is nothing better than eating a ripe tomato that I grew, or feasting on a Red Pontiac potato that I raised. The simple things.

    As people lose the pleasures of simple things they have to go find their personal crusades. So now we have idiots fighting for the great wester titmouse or preserving crypto-biotic soils. We have idiots who don’t even know where Gaza is fighting for the rights of the Gazans. The special interests are everywhere and represent everything.

    Too good for too long. We need a good economic depression or a war to get people to enjoy the simple things in life. Perhaps it is coming.

      You depend upon the cooperative community of soil organisms to nourish your plants. I will harvest cherries in a few weeks, so I know your pride and delight in growing things.

      Why, as a man who understands the cooperative soil community and the importance of a web of life, would you criticize people who support ecosystems by “fighting for the great western titmouse?” Ecology for me, but not for thee?

      Or are you pumping that soil full of chemicals from outside and not actually building a soil community?

      • Cankerpuss May 3, 2024 at 11:35 am #

        Dr. Tom, I didn’t say the great western titmouse or cryptobiotic soils are not worth understanding or even preserving. I simply used those things as an example of the many “causes” that privileged people latch onto in order to find meaning for their useless privileged lives.

        Let’s face it, if people had to spend more time worrying about where their next meal would come from they’d be less inclined to worry about a patch of cryptobiotic soil in the baren desert lands of Nevada.

        I do not use chemical fertilizers. I use a chipper/shredder and recycle all of the plant material I grown back into the soil.

        • DrTomSchmidt May 3, 2024 at 2:21 pm #

          Ah, well done. The death of chemical agriculture will lead to a healthier relationship with the living earth and organisms. Of course the fertilizer industry grow out of munitions in WW2 and reflect the same mentality: bomb, kill, tear apart the web of life, destroy.

          Those people advocating for the titmouse? They’ve started a journey to thinking beyond their own navels. We need them to take up our yoke and start thinking about ecosystems, taking Man’s place on earth and helping it be fruitful and multiplying.

            The original environmental movement of the 60s and 70s was started by Americans born before WW2, who grew up in a natural paradise, and wanted to protect it from the industrial savages.
            The birds were being killed, rivers were on fire, and the redwoods were being clearcut. The Americans back then did not approve.

            That movement, which produced the EPA and the Endangered Species Act, has been demonized by the Mighty Wurlitzer, and what is left of the environmental movement has been steered into All Climate Change, All The Time, a cause so patently ridiculous that not very many people support it.

            And most of the Americans born before WW2 are now dead, so the ones around now don’t even know what it was like to hear birds sing, or have bugs all over your windowshield.

        • DrTomSchmidt May 3, 2024 at 2:23 pm #

          I have mostly given up on my sweets because I can buy sweet cherries. Cannot buy sour cherries, so I fight the birds for those.

          Last year, by accident, I managed to protect a few sweets. You’re absolutely correct: a fully ripened sweet cherry off your own tree FAR outshines what’s available commercially. I’m going to try to net a few this year.

          • Anthea May 4, 2024 at 2:03 am #

            I grew a couple of sweet cherry trees very successfully many years ago. One of the trees must have produced a bushel or more of cherries. If you choose the yellow sweet cherries, such as Emperor Francis or Royal Anne, the birds don’t bother them.

            For the past few years, I haven’t been successful with them. In one case, the trees had just started to bear when we had two summers of absoloutely torrential rains. Cherries don’t like wet feet, and the excessive rains killed them.

            So then I planted two trees in a somewhat elevated spot that I figured would drain well. One tree flourished. The other tree was run over by a truck, when a friend visited me at night and veered off the driveway. I replaced it, but a neighbor I had hired to weed-eat the drive way tore it up with a weed-eater. I replaced it again, and someone who was mowing the area ran over it.

            Sweet cherries must have a pollinator. If you don’t have two trees, you get almost no cherries. These problems all happened at my previous house. Since I’ve moved, I planted two sweet cherries here, last fall. They seem to have survived, but they’ll need some TLC, because the soil here seems to be lacking. The other fruit trees have been slow to bear.

            The catalog (Stark Brothers) says it takes sweet cherries 4-7 years to bear, and I already have a lot of mileage on me.

          Driving through British Columbia, we used to stop by the side of the road to pick wild blackberries, inevitably getting some scratches from the thistles. Nobody in BC would have thought to purchase them when they grow wild all over the Province.

          And the flavor of commercial fruit is inevitably discouraging.

          I’m now living in an agricultural area of West Java where sweet corn is a hot ticket, as both the ag authorities and the farmers have discovered you can grow it and sell it for vastly more than the rice or tubers they traditionally cultivate. We buy ears of corn that were harvested the same day, and I’d never tasted anything as heavenly.

      I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again and again. What we are witnessing in today’s America is a people who have had it too good for far too long. Spoiled. Lazy. Decadent. Stupid. Prideful. Silly.
      Greedy. Ignorant. Arrogant. Current generations no longer know what it is like to go hungry. They don’t know the meaning of the word “sacrifice.” They don’t know real work. They don’t know how to produce anything. They don’t know what it is like to suffer, struggle and want.

      Puritanism lives! Misery uber alles! God, make us wretched, so we can know the true meaning of life!

      Cankerpuss, take heart. The woke ruling class is gathering strength by the day, to make the rest of us learn the joy of hunger, suffering, struggle and want. Enjoy.

    The Israeli response to the Hamas attack as reported in the major news sources reminds me of something from the Old Testament.

    The disconnection with the Bible stories is the modern day incoherent descriptions – my normal dreams are more logical than the news reporting.

    If it is true that the women at the protests want to be dominated wouldn’t the exaggerated stories of gang rapes by Hamas stimulate them? “Raped so violently that the victim’s pelvises snapped.” “Soldiers gang raping women then using a shovels to decapitate them rather than using a bullet.” Like the way Ted Bundy got love letters in prison. Isn’t it also consistent with the women supporting George Floyd and Michael Brown. A law abiding non-violent nerd from their workplace awkwardly asks them out and it is sexual harassment but they are OK with violent felons.

    • Cankerpuss May 3, 2024 at 11:02 am #

      There is no logic here, Jo-G. These women are lost souls. Angry at the wonderful world they were lucky to inherit. They feel guilt for having it so good while their sisters across the pond are treated like scum.

      Can’t wrap my brain around it anymore.

    • JohnAZ May 3, 2024 at 11:30 am #

      Nice guys leave women as dry as the desert. That doesn’t mean they want to be gang raped to death but it can lead them into holding very foolish idealisms and into bad situations if they persist in the former.

      Well, you can see how the logic works, when you see the men on here defending the US attack on Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.

      Sure, millions were killed, and millions more crippled, farmland was poisoned, farm animals were killed, houses were burned, people were rounded up into concentration camps, women were raped and then murdered, children are still being blown up by mines……but it’s all good, doncha know, because feelingz. Male anti-communist feelingza, which justifies any atrocity, because it makes them feel self-righteous.

      Still waving their virtue flags, “making the world safe for democracy”, all these decades later, when all the excuses and predictions their rulers gave them for the atrocities have already turned out to be lies.

      Don’t let the truth interrupt your feelingz, guys! You just keep clinging to them, like children cling to their teddy bears. You’re the Good Guys. The government told you so, so it must be true.

      They are correct in not believing they are hearing the truth, but they don’t know how to find out the truth and tell it from fiction.

      Someone in my family told me that people she knows (not the ones on the campuses), when asked why they support Hamas, will say in serious, hushed tones, “because we have friends that are Muslims”.

      After the American people of the past rose up against the CIA in the 70s, the evil Reagan farmed off the worst of CIA meddling to NGOs, such as the NED and Open Society, and many more.

      George Soros is used to do the bidding of Empire.

      Watch what is going on in Georgia right now, where the legislature tried to pass a bill similar to the 1938 US FARA bill, which the Mighty Wurlitzer calls “Russian inspired”, because they think that we are idiots.

      The NGOs have released violent mobs onto the streets, trying to overthrow the legislature.
      The president of Georgia is a French woman, no doubt one of Soros’s minions, and she will veto the bill.

      It’s all part of their agenda.

      “The plethora of organizations involved,” explains The Washington Times, not only shared Mr. Soros’ funding, but they also fed off each other, using content and buzzwords developed by one organization on another’s website, referencing each other’s news columns and by creating a social media echo chamber of Facebook ‘likes’ and Twitter hashtags that dominated the mainstream media and personal online newsfeeds.”

        Yeah, that quote is part of the rulers’ attempt to shut down social media.

        The problem with Soros and other NGOs is not ‘likes’ on FB or shares on Twitter.

          I finished watching the discussion.

          There is some logic to Soros and the 2030 Agenda, but I see the cycle of the empire of Russia as being at the start of capitalism, and I don’t think that Putin or Russia’s citizens would vote to pass up the opportunity in favor of the 2030 Agenda.

          Macgregor and Ritter come to similar conclusions on how the war in Ukraine will play out. Macgregor implies that Putin will mop up the blood within the next few months.

          It seems that social media and internet networking will be the death of Soros and the 2030 Agenda, Do you think they will pull the plug on communication, or do you think they view it as a net positive for their agenda?

          Macgregor talks about citizens in the ME wanting peace, and Bibi and Iran leadership being the problem. Do you think regime change would facilitate implementation of the 2030 Agenda, or do you think Iranian citizens want the benefit of growth like Russia?

          Saudi Arabia had bought into the 2030 Agenda, with the vision of prosperity for its citizens as a result of the mega projects. If the UN tossed out mega projects to nations around the world, could that appease the citizens of the ME and bring peace to the region? What bone would they have to toss at Iran (just let them have their money back, add some, and let them trade their oil)?

    The semester ends in a week or two, and except for some bitter enders which will be easily dealt with by police, these absurd disruptions should end.

But I am supposed to give a damn about some dessert tribes that have been fighting forever? I am supposed to care because a bunch of loons have their own interpretation of the Bible that says nonsense about the chosen ones and ends times? If the Jews are the Chosen Ones that means I am not so you don’t need my help assholes.

      The Jews are not the “chosen ones.” The chosen ones are the House of Israel, or all of Jacob’s descendants. Remember he had 12 sons and the House of Israel was divided into twelve tribes. Only one of those twelve tribes was the Jews as they claim to be descendants of the tribe of Judah (I personally don’t believe modern Jews are descendants of Judah but that is a different discussion for a different time). The “chosen ones” are those descended of the 12 tribes.

      10 of those tribes were taken by the Assyrians and dispersed through the north countries. Where are they now?

      I whole heartedly agree with you on having to choose between Palestine and Israel. This fight has been going on since before the days of King David who lived, what, 4000 years ago? I’m personally sick of all of it. Let them kill each other off. But, nooooooo, what ails them there, has to come all the across the ocean to my country and become our issues. Disgusting.

          I don’t know from chosen, but a main point of the Abraham and Isaac story was to allow Jews to stop performing human sacrifice and instead sacrifice fine animals to their bloodthirsty god. This came about as the people’s sensibilities evolved a bit, and they started frowning on human sacrifice. So I have read.

That alone pisses me off, the fact that America is willing to do anything for these people. It’s because of Israel I gave up on faith and started even resenting religion entirely. I got so sick of this self worship chosen one stuff, and how we must be obligated to help them cause hell on earth to fulfill whatever prophecies they believe in. The U.S. would be wise to not even help them, let them get their asses kicked by the Middle East if they don’t know how to behave.

      My point, Jassage27, is if you are a white person with ancestry from Great Brittain, Germania or scandinavia, you might very well be part of those lost 10 tribes dispersed by the Assyrians and part of the “chosen people.”

      It’s not just the Jews.

      • JohnAZ May 3, 2024 at 1:58 pm #

        True, remember that Kings 1&2 describe the breakup between the ten tribes and Judah and Benjamin. The 10 tribes settled Galilee and Samaria, the other two Judea.

        The difference was the belief that Jerusalem was the location of Yahweh, the 10 tribes believed it was in the North instead. They also worshipped Baal and others as part of their beliefs.

        At the end of Kings, God has had enough of the disobedience of the Northern tribes and destroyed them, dispersing them. Much later, He did the same to the South.

        Like the DNA studies showing that Ghenghis Khans genes are in 1/3 of the world’s population, maybe the dispersal has done the same thing.

    JHK simply has gone off the rails.As the world’s worst, or at least, most publicized, Genocide since WW2 is committed by his childhood idols, on American tax-payers dime, what is important to talk about? Why, insignificant perceived attitudes of the only people who are actively opposing it! They want nice food (the fiends!) and to take finals! I guess that’s more accommodating to Jim’s cognitive dissonance than Israel’s refusal to investigate nearly 400 tortured, mutilated bodies of prisoners (hands still tied) dug out of a mass grave…under a hospital! Or Israel’s uncontested other war crimes…or Bin Gvir’s anti-Semitism (“Arabs are animals…”). Sad and disappointing, it’s a desperate diversion, replete with all the shameful dodges (a string of Israeli lies, rapes, beheaded babies, etc., ALL thoroughly discredited) to distract from the glaring reality: Israel is behaving exactly as the 1930’s Nazis.

          So how could they have killed and buried 400 bodies under it?

          • JohnAZ May 3, 2024 at 2:00 pm #

            With most buried before the Oct. 7 debacle.

            Some people will believe anything negative about Israel.

          • rudyspeaks May 3, 2024 at 3:48 pm #

            They just found them! There has been no investigation of any type, and the risible notion that “Israel didn’t have control of that hospital.” is [sh-t, how can I put this diplomatically”?] about at the level of MSM coverage! Israel controls every inch of Gaza! If Israel has established one fact beyond contention, it’s that NOTHING those psychos say can be trusted. Half of the comments here are shallow Zionist propaganda!

          • Paula D May 3, 2024 at 3:59 pm #

    “I doubt that it is to be the utopia of robots, A-I, and non-stop sexual titillation that the techno-narcissists dream of. Rather, it will be a society struggling to keep too much complex stuff running with insufficient energy resources and capital — that is, a society falling apart, losing knowledge, technical know-how, comfort, and convenience while having a hard time feeding itself.”

    Some observations.

    State Media is pushing/inflating & overdramatizing these college protests hard. I’m not entirely sure what their calculation is. If it is to galvanize support Biden, that is failing. So is attempting to gin up another war in the Middle East. Nobody is interested. So if this current psywar operation was to firm up support for the Deep State, I think it has failed pretty miserably.

    Almost half of the people occupying university buildings are professional activists.

    The other half who may be college students– remember, there are general public community people involved too in the protests– strike me as completely clueless, naive young adults who are acting out a psychodrama out of the realization that many of them are facing a meaningless future after graduation.

    I’m not sorry for any of these universities. The corruption, waste, frauds, and organized racketeering these “institutions” have perpetrated on the youth of the nation has been terrible. Higher ed. is just another business, at the end of the day. All the staff, the professors, the administrators– will all get paid. Regardless if these degrees these young adults are “achieving” (using that word lightly) will be as worthless as the paper it was typed on.

    I wouldn’t be surprised one bit if the professional activists hold liberal arts degrees from these colleges they are now working at. I’d also wager the students protesting disproportionately come from the ranks of the Gender/Queer studies, Ethnic studies, etc.. “sociological” study majors. No doubt.

    The students are basically doing their internship for their future “job” as professional civilization destroyer.

    I’m not endorsing what these people are saying in this video as being accurate, and I’m not saying I agree with their conclusions. What I am saying is that there is something going on here that is getting ignored while people scream past each other with talking points.

    The pier thing, I believed that the plans for that were ready before October 7. I had forgotten about this, not really forgotten but I wasn’t thinking about it:

    ‘Plans for artificial island off Gaza coast in the works’

    Intel Minister Katz tells the JPost Annual Conference that the venture would seek to connect the Palestinian territory to the movement of people and goods.

    jpost.com/annual-conference/plans-for-artificial-island-off-gaza-coast-in-the-works-says-intel-minister-katz-454721

    That was back in 2016.

    So, going on way before the October attacks.

    This video has Antony Blinken running things. I doubt that very much, he seems as much of a boob as John Kerry; an errand boy, getting humiliated and treated disrespectfully by real leaders.

    What the verifiable facts in the video here do is tend to support some of my conspiracy theories:

    Holy SH*T The U.S. is Building WHAT in Gaza???!!! This explains EVERYTHING

    youtube.com/watch?v=TUiu6mcgk88&t=4s

    W still don’t have the answer to how that attack was allowed to happen and how it was allowed to go on for so long.

    They should have expected it might, and been on high alert.

    The NYT posted a feeble preliminary report that it looked as if it was just that intel didn’t get passed along.

    Gee, where have I heard that before?

    So, “mistakes were made”? Who made them? What were they?

    No answers.

    If the NYT tells you something, it’s safe to believe it didn’t happen that way.

    Then there is Blinken telling Qatar not to worry about getting any requests to hand over Hamas leaders.

    The Biden syndicate hies ties to Qatar.

    Qatar has a hand in building the alleged food pier and it looks like the US has an interest in making sure the fighting doesn’t end until they get the pier built.

    Nobody is talking about this, just about the show on our campuses.

    It isn’t as if the campus protests aren’t newsworthy, it’s that the story that begat the protests is being pretty much ignored.

  24. PeteAtomic May 3, 2024 at 11:45 am #

    Defense Sec. Austin told Matt Gaetz in a Congressional hearing that there will be around 1,000 US troops on the beach in Gaza working the “humanitarian pier”. If US troops receive fire, they will be firing back into Gaza.

    So. The Biden regime will get its war, one way or another. Ukraine isn’t working out. Iran is too tough, and backed by too many powerful players.

    The US military will do what its been doing for over 20 years now. It’ll go back to kicking in doors swat team style, abusing women & kids, and beating up unarmed men.

          There may have been many enemies of JFK, but George Giancana stated in his book that his brother Sam organized the assassination by the Mafia at the direction of the CIA for MIC interference with Cuba and his reducing the advisors in Vietnam. The Italian Mafia in Chicago was incensed at Bobby opening investigations into the Mafia after Joseph Kennedy promised hands off with Sam for his support for Kennedy in 1960.

          If the Rothschilds were involved, more fuel onto the fire.

    It warms my heart to see coeds protesting in support of Hamas dressed in short shorts, halter tops, and a kaffiyeh cleverly wrapped into a fashion statement. It just screams, “I have no fucking idea what’s going on in the world or what I’m doing here. But I look good, right?”

    How the war in Gaza became the Current Thing on campus

    American universities are the perfect breeding ground for these uprisings, having long embraced revolutionary ideologies that seek to delegitimize and destroy the foundations of our civilization.

    JORDAN SCHACHTEL

    King-Slutzky is a PhD student and lecturer at Columbia. An avowed marxist, she has spent many years in the digital communications space supporting leftist political movements. She describes herself as “ancestrally Jewish” in order to distinguish herself from white people on the woke hierarchy. She also describes herself as “poor,” despite having two doctors as parents, one of whom operates a successful private practice in Manhattan. King-Slutzky, who is in her mid 30s and without any semblance of a legitimate career path, is the epitome of a limousine marxist.

    Jones, the guy wearing the belly shirt, is part of the “Queers for Palestine” movement and is the lead organizer of the Columbia/Barnard branch of Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP). It is Jewish in the sense that its membership roster includes some “ancestral Jews” like King-Slutzky. But in reality, JVP is a fringe leftist group that is funded by George Soros’s charities and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Essentially, JVP exists to put a “Jewish” flavor on the destruction of Israel and western civilization as a whole.

    Alwan is a leader with Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), a Hamas adjacent student group that has organized and facilitated the nationwide disruptions on college campuses. A true radical, Alwan has expressed support for jihadist terrorism and has demanded the destruction of Israel and annihilation of its people. Although she supports Islamism, she frames her struggle within the marxist dichotomy of the oppressed (Palestinian/Muslim) versus the oppressor (Jew/Israel/USA/Western culture), in which the former can do no wrong and the latter can do no right.

    And these young activists are not alone in their efforts. They are being guided and maneuvered by professionals. The students are being assisted by deep pocketed outfits and longtime movement organizers like Lisa Fithian of Occupy Wall Street fame and former leftwing terrorist Bill Ayers.

    So domestically, we are witnessing the reincarnation and emboldening of the Red-Green alliance.

    Out here in the conservative hinterlands–where people, including young people, still produce things of value like food, energy, shelter (you know, boring stuff the production of which leftist urban dorks think is unnecessary), common sense people look at what is happening in urban yuppieland and wonder how any of these leftist morons are going to survive when the gubmint–meaning the rest of we actual taxpayers–no longer fund their lazy follies.

    The old joke is that you wouldn’t want to be down in the LA or NYC hood the day that the welfare checks bounce. That’ll suck plenty enough, but now things won’t be safe (at least for awhile) when all the lazy leftist activists get cut off from their trust fund checks, student loan forgiveness, and soon-to-be bankrupt Mommies and Daddies who can’t support their useless exercises in Fascist/Communist/Socialism much longer. For all those useless leftist Karens now seemingly willing to engage in violence, the may get the ultimate in “women’s liberation”–the “right” to bleed out right next to their leftist man-bunned, gender-confused violent vandals, looters, and arsonists when law-abiding people get sick of having what they have worked for, paid for, and fought wars to protect is being wrecked by leftist human vermin.

  33. Rowdypiglet May 3, 2024 at 1:42 pm #

    Thanks to our host for today’s message; it needed to be said.

    It’s been said before (by me) but little girls are no longer offered the option of a traditional life. The message “you can be anything you want” (with one major exception) begins long before kindergarten. Once in the system, it’s relentless. No sort of traditional life, of the kind women are suited by biology and evolution to play, is mentioned except occasionally, scornfully, with absurd tales of the horrors endured by housewives in the 1950s.

    I won’t argue the numbers because I have no idea what they are, but I have no doubt whatsoever that if a traditional life of raising children in the home was treated from birth as at least equally deserving of consideration and respect, a choice girls could make without shame, it would be chosen by many, maybe by most. That said, what could better induce the kind of madness we see in young women than to be blocked permanently from the role that one’s own nature calls out for? To never even have sufficient awareness to know the source of that wasp-like rage? These women lack even the level of self knowledge that produces denial; they don’t know they have anything to deny. Yet they do accomplish one thing with their shenanigans: they delay the point at which they will have to enter the working world.

    I’ve been in and out of that world all of my life, at every level, and seen more miserable women than I would have thought possible. Always, without fail, the more they get of what they demand, the angrier and more vengeful they become. They don’t dare display that anger openly because it might be traced back to the source, so they carefully disguise the harm they cause others and justify it as a requirement for advancement in their careers. I remember being struck by an interview with Candace Bergen, in which she spoke about how proud she was that she allowed her husband to die in the hospital without her company because she was filming some crap tv show and they both agreed it was more important than being with him on his deathbed. Does anyone seriously think that holding such attitudes is deeply satisfying and rewarding? I think it’s profoundly unnatural for women, and in no way surprising that they’re acting deranged in response to the expectation that they’ll endorse this anti-human attitude. Women are primarily feeling creatures, and are clearly showing that they can’t think their way out of this.

    We’re no longer barred from the workplace or at any conceivable disadvantage there; on the contrary. Sane human beings, when they receive what they have asked for, are gratified and proceed to enjoy it. This isn’t what happens when people receive what they’ve been told would make them happy but which is actually destructive of happiness. Not every woman is out in the street shrieking, but offices are rife with women who are every bit as filled with inchoate rage and who exhibit it semi-covertly toward those they work with and generally in their lives. They’re just a bit more in control of themselves than the lunatics in TikTok videos and out on the streets. I don’t want to argue with Beryl about who started it. I just want it to stop.

    • Jarek May 3, 2024 at 2:04 pm #

      Remember, many women despise their husbands. They didn’t get the one they wanted so as the big Three Oh approached, and all their friends getting married, they chose somebody too. They needed a sperm donor and walking wallet and let’s face it: Some one to abuse. It’s his fault. What is? Everything. Especially his not being the right one. And also remember, five minutes alone with a high level alpha like Bill Clinton and a women is ruined for life in terms of respecting ordinary men.

      New finding indicate the deep commitment the average woman has to being miserable. They endorse the “old findings” of sages of every clime and culture.

      • Rowdypiglet May 3, 2024 at 2:46 pm #

        @Jarek, yes, I’ve encountered way too many of the husband-hating women. The first time I was ever in an office setting, I was astonished and disgusted at the way women spoke about their husbands. The mockery, the disdain, the exposure of private failings and petty flaws that should have been treated with tenderness and kept where they belonged. It’s never everyone, but it’s often enough to keep silent those who would object. If you want to keep your job, having other women oppose you covertly in an office environment is a death sentence.

        And as for being commited to misery, I don’t think these women dare to confront the ruination of their lives so they have to double down and defend their choices. That’s particularly true as they grow older and the options become more limited.

        • Beryl of Oyl May 3, 2024 at 3:22 pm #

          Oh come on. I remember one time when a number of men in my office were commiserating over how their wives would not let them run off to do things with “the boys” on weekends.

          When they opined that women couldn’t stand to see a man have fun, I had heard enough of their crap, and I brought up my late brother, who was at that time alive and well, and I told them that his wife did not have to nag him, because there was no power on Earth that could MAKE him forgo weekends with his family.

          Disparaging the people closest to you publicly is not solely a woman thing.

          • Rowdypiglet May 4, 2024 at 12:07 pm #

            @Beryl, I keep trying to explain myself when it seems my words have been misunderstood or elaborated upon. I accept that I have my share of blame and have probably not made myself as clear as I could have.

            I never said disparaging the people closest to you publicly is solely a woman thing. What I do believe is that men and women are fundamentally different, a point on which it seems to me that you disagree. I think those differences are manifest in the ways we typically misbehave. It’s never everyone, but both men and women who act mostly on their natural impulses will act on them in ways that are characteristic of either men or women. This seems to me so obvious that I think it must take a great and ongoing effort not to notice it.

            I have women friends, in and out of family, whom I would trust with anything. We could all be much better than we are, myself included, but that requires knowing and acknowledging what drives our behavior. Honest self examination isn’t popular in our culture, and I hope we could at least agree on that point.

          • Jarek May 4, 2024 at 1:14 pm #

            Very well said, Rowdy, as per the Crumb character, Mr Natural. Men are strongly conditioned not to be too natural because everyone knows where that leads. But women, being supposedly “sugar and spice and everything nice”? Oh it’s fine for them to act natural and quietly slander everybody.

      @ Rowdypiglet:

      My father died when my oldest daughter was about 5 months old, and I was recently married. This was how I happened to encounter some relatives I hadn’t seen in 20-odd years. We were all gathered at the hospital.

      I had only one brief exchange with an aunt–whom I probably hadn’t seen since I was a child, 20 years before–in the hospital cafeteria. I’m sitting there eating and holding the baby, and she’s snidely implying that I must have married and had a baby because I didn’t want to work.

      That was literally the sum total of what the woman had to say to me. No condolences about my father, congratulations about the baby, or normal inquiries about normal things.

      This is the kind of thing young women encounter, at least from some people. Apparently, the kid should be in day care by the time it’s a week old.

      • Rowdypiglet May 5, 2024 at 3:48 pm #

        @Anthea, that’s a withering kind of encounter, especially considering that it plays out in slightly different forms throughout the lives of young women now. Little slights, nasty little asides, mockery, insinuations. Most girls aren’t strong enough to stand up to this kind of thing. They’re being trained to have disdain for any traditional role, and it usually works. But, for many women, underneath their devotion to career, there is envy and rage at those who made a better choice, the one they secretly wish they could have made.

    What are you asking of us Mr. Kunstler? That women not protest the wanton killing and maiming of countless innocent children? Are we to be like the female IDF solder / heavy equipment operator in the video making its rounds on socail media, who sings Hebrew folksongs while she pushes Palestinian corpses into mass graves?

    And quoting that simp Jordan Petersen is a seriously weak move. If he is your idea of what a man should be or that he has anything relevant to say what a woman should be – tells me you are seriously off your rocker.

    “You’d have to sadly conclude that many young people really can’t take much more Modernity, and are now pretty avid to opt out of it…”

    I’m not particularly young, but I’d gladly opt out.

    I don’t think that a Western society can function properly without a large percentage of its people engaged in agriculture. Some of this mess could be ameliorated by smashing agribusiness to bits and allowing family farms to take its place. More people living and working on farms would be good for the economy and good for the people.

      Rowdy, fewer than 1.75% of Americans live or work on farms.

      A few YouTubers out there make their subject matter dying American towns and abandoned rural areas. It’s pretty discouraging, the empty main streets and decrepit farms. But here’s the thing, people still live out there. Yet don’t see any livestock on their property, nor any gardens. Their houses are falling down around them, and the yards are littered with abandoned automobiles and junked agricultural machinery. It’s almost as if they’ve forgotten how to live in the Country, and have just given up,

      • RD3 May 3, 2024 at 2:43 pm #

        “It’s almost as if they’ve forgotten how to live in the Country, and have just given up”

        Yes, but this was intentional. Secretary of Agriculture told family farms to “get big or die.” Small farming operations were out-scaled by agribusiness and the only way to continue to run them is over-leverage and live on the thin blade of bankruptcy. Most people can’t do that, so they can’t farm anymore, even if they still live on the land. Ain’t finance grand?

        @BackRow, I think you meant to reply to RD3 but what you describe, while widespread and found in every rural area, isn’t the whole picture. Where I am, almost everyone has a vegetable garden and we often trade for what we didn’t grow or just give away as well. My neighbors trade two loaves of fresh baked bread to their neighbors for eggs from the chickens. There’s a large farm two miles from us with hundreds of cows, our neighbors have goats (they make cheese and soap), almost everyone has chickens. They also sometimes have abandoned cars and other junk, but there’s only so much you can do in a day.

        • BackRowHeckler May 3, 2024 at 4:25 pm #

          That sounds more like it Rowdy. We have young families moving into this rural/suburban neighborhood and I note nice gardens & one family has a dozen chickens, another home schools their kids and has put in a grape arbor & a blueberry patch. The guy with the chickens was home alot & I was wondering what he did for a living; he told me he is a songwriter and named some of the songs he wrote, which I recognized. He’s from Manhattan but has taken to this more or less rural area. Altho I have to say it’s less and less rural with every passing year.

          The videos I was referencing were shot in panhandle Texas, Arkansas, OK, Kansas & other midwestern & western states, places with an agricultural pedigree. How much does a gallon of paint cost to paint your house? Lumber to fix the fences? Seeds you could probably get for free from the County. All that junk in the yard could probably be scrapped for a profit. I might mention that the narrator suggests fentanyl has hit some of these towns hard, which might be an explanation.

          There’s a film that touches upon this subject, Rowdy.

            @ BackRowHeckler:

            I think you mean “Winter’s Bone.” This is an excellent movie.

            The characters were in some ways like my old friends where I used to live at “Dogpatch-by-the-Lake,” except that my country-folk friends were much more witty, fun, and funny.

            That would be my only criticism of the movie: The people were much too serious. Real-life rural people have a keen sense of humor, and someone is always regaling you with some hilarious story.

        • Anthea May 5, 2024 at 2:24 pm #

          @ Rowdypiglet:

          That’s about the way it is around here. There are quite a few market gardeners, many of whom I got to know by doing farmers’ markets. Among family farmers, hubby generally has a job. The wife is likely running the farm. Hubby may grow some government-subsidized row-crops. Other farmers are actually ranchers; they run cattle on their land. I doubt if most of them make a living doing this, as it would take a lot of land and a lot of cattle.

          But most of the farmland around here is farmed by people who own large acreages–and often rent still more–to grow government-subsidized row crops. If you want to make a living doing this kind of farming, you must have farm machinery that probably costs millions. To make this equation pay, you have to farm a very large acreage.

          We have a large and growing Amish population. Just ten or tweny years ago, I don’t think there were any Amish around here, but now there seem to be several families. I think they make a living by farming, though the Amish men sometimes do construction work.

          Anyway, the agricultural economy around here is functional.

          • Rowdypiglet May 5, 2024 at 4:06 pm #

            @Anthea, We’ve been able to attract some Amish people to this cold part of New England, and they’re thriving here. They have a store where they sell everything they make, from fresh food to quilts, and do very well. Their kids help with everything and are sweet, polite, willing, and artless. There are lots of small organic farms here that sell locally, and we have a mill where you can buy local grains whole or ground. It’s a good place for small farmers and, fortunately, you can do without the extraordinarily expensive and fiddly pieces of huge machinery that bankrupt once prosperous farmers like my brother-in-law.

      The converse statement is also true, RD3, the more people pushed into the cities, the more dependent the society. Just what the Deep State ordered. Per JHK’s description of entropy in TLE, Big Box thinking which city life is an example, eventually dooms an economy.

    “I’m not at all sanguine that the society we are becoming will need this vast infrastructure for babysitting young adults who could otherwise make themselves useful and productive on-the-ground in lines of work that actually keep civilized life going.”

    And how did ‘we’ get this kind of babysitting-needing young person in the first place? They were not hatched out of an egg or brought here by space ship. They were created by a culture of Earthly parental neglect and generational deterioration that has proceeded since The Greatest Generation had their day.

    The Sixties still had a good number of thinking and truly idealistic young people and adults. But many of the Sixties generation was not very good at their own raising youth… and thus the cycle of generation deterioration was spawned.

    Look, of course not every person in each generation is bad. Painting with that wide a brush is not accurate or respectful. But few with eyes open can deny that since the 1940s and 1950s America and much of the World has been in a generational-wide tailspin. And again, this did not have to be. This has been accomplished by a combination of parental neglect and by leading lives as bad examples… or deliberately spun by the Dark Side that sought to create generational rot in a plan to bring down the best of America and make USA one of those ‘S’-hole Nations ripe for fleecing and erasure.

    We have been deliberately taught NOT to think. We have been cautioned never to question or stand up to those who have grabbed power. We have been conditioned how NOT to raise up responsible youth. We have allowed rot into all our institutions and allowed our Divine rights to be obliterated by the vile ones. We have lost our moral and ethic anchors and tossed them over into a sea of Wokeness and full allegiance to nations OTHER THAN America. We spend tax dollars and toss aside any moral authority we once had to support atrocities around the Globe. And all this is fueled by our willful neglect of raising young people to think and live in good directions.

    You plant good seed, you reap good crops. You don’t tend your garden and allow bad seed to flourish… and you reap crops of weeds and fields of despair.

    Young people are always the canary in your society’s coal mine. They indicate the health your society… and the competence of those who raised those youth (or didn’t). They are our social score card of results. And for some time now… America has been striking out way too much.

    Wanna know your future? Look at your young people. Look at what we have created – and the kind of world that we shall reap as a result.

    And today, pray.

    • JohnAZ May 3, 2024 at 2:26 pm #

      Very good!!!!!

      The most important lesson that kids need to be taught is how to handle the world, represented by their parents, saying,

      NO!!!

      The Fourth Turning cycles are caused by generations being told NO by the elder generation and then spending their time in power challenging the NOs from their youth.

      There are lots and lots of reasons for NO!!!

      The real problem?

      Parents and teachers becoming less “talented” with each generation. The Fourth Turning states that until the next crisis happens, this trend will continue, parenting worsens and teachers become dumber.

      That is up and beyond the Marxist indoctrination of the universities. I wonder what % of the staffs are not native and civics “trained” people. In other words, they do not even understand what America is, so how can they teach it?

    Higher Ed in the USA was already chugging down the suicide track before this spring’s eruption of pro-Hamas fury.

    The college loan racket (government-backed) had the perverse effect of pumping up tuition costs beyond what even many pretty well-off families could afford, while loading up young people with life-wrecking obligations (debt which “Joe Biden” is now shifting onto the creditors, US tax-payers).

    Decades of DEI have filled the faculties with incompetents and assorted malcontents teaching fantasy curricula with no real-life value, and burdened the schools with cadres of overpaid diversity busybodies and thought-police.

    ResearchGate

    The agony of partner choice
    The agony of partner choice refers to the emotional distress and anxiety that individuals may experience when faced with an overwhelming number of potential romantic partners. This phenomenon is often associated with the rise of dating apps and social media, which provide users with an unprecedented level of access to potential matches.

    Research suggests that excessive partner availability can have adverse effects on individuals, including increased fear of being single, decreased self-esteem, and feelings of partner choice overload. This can lead to a sense of anxiety and uncertainty, as individuals struggle to make decisions about who to pursue and who to reject.

    One study found that high partner availability increased fear of being single, decreased state self-esteem, and increased partner choice overload. Another study discovered that popular young women with low self-esteem were more likely to imitate a popular peer, while unpreferred young women with high self-esteem were less likely to do so.

    The agony of partner choice can also be attributed to the pressure to make a “perfect” choice, as individuals are bombarded with curated profiles and seemingly endless options. This can lead to feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt, as individuals struggle to measure up to the idealized standards presented online.

    Ultimately, the agony of partner choice highlights the importance of self-reflection and self-awareness in the pursuit of romantic relationships. By acknowledging the emotional toll of excessive partner availability and the pressure to make a “perfect” choice, individuals can work to cultivate a more authentic and fulfilling approach to dating and relationships.

    • Rowdypiglet May 3, 2024 at 3:03 pm #

      When we still lived in an urban area, I knew lots of women who chose way too many times. They got to be in their late 30s and had been through more “partners” than they could remember. Every time one of these inevitably broke up, the redistribution of living quarters and objects (and sometimes children) was messy and prolonged.

      But the husband store and all it implies is downstream from the bigger problem, which is that we’re growing people who have no principles, no ability to commit to anything, no common sense, no decency, no depth, and no apparent ability to grow into adults.

      • Jarek May 3, 2024 at 3:12 pm #

        Women tend to do shame (external) rather than guilt (internal). So once society said it was ok, they just did whatever they wanted.

        Sometimes, something deeper comes up. One girl was late getting home, so she lied about the taxi driver raping her. That’s perfectly reasonable, right? Months after the trial, with him safely in prison for years, she started screaming. She was being attacked by a Monster – her conscience.

        He was released, his life ruined. Nothing happened to her at all.

          @Jarek, It’s that weird thing that began with the Satanic Panic, where suddenly you’re required to believe and affirm any “victim” story (unless a man is the victim, in which case the presumption goes the other way). I’ve seen this demonstrated in family custody hearings many times. The judges don’t dare do anything that favors the man, no matter how obvious it is that he’s being railroaded. All a woman has to do is make an accusation, which will be immediately affirmed and accepted as truth.

          It’s patently unfair, but the worst thing about it is that it creates the conditions for men and women, intended by God and nature to complement one another, to instead be enraged and at odds. It saddens me to say that the rage I see men exhibit in all sorts of ways (and I think trans “women” are a good example) is for the most part justified rage, whereas the rage of pussy-hatted women is . . . not.

      • Anthea May 4, 2024 at 12:58 pm #

        @ Rowdypiglet:

        That’s the real problem: the deterioration of the whole society, in terms of principles and values. I’d say that the society has been deliberately undermined, and I’d even consider it something of an excuse.

        There’s been a failure of the whole society to transmit the values of Western Civilization, and to resist incursions against it, going way back. I think this may be partly due to our being a largely frontier society with a widely dispersed population, where education was inadequate, and religious formation was not attended to: There just weren’t enough people with the requisite mental and moral training to go around.

        Unfortunately, this vacuum was filled by ever-more-encroaching mass media, which worked to undermine the values of Western Civilization and even work directly against them. Public education was another factor, and its increasing centralization into the hands of people whose intent was also to undermine Western intellectual traditions.

        So I’d say you had these factors working against a nation whose people were particularly vulnerable, due to bad formation.

        The solution is for people to become virtuous. The is a difficult proposition, since most people don’t want to become virtuous, and because we’re in kind of an Augean Stables situation.

        • Anthea May 4, 2024 at 11:02 am #

          @ Jarek:

          It is through women that men advance in everything that truly matters: social connection, a meaningful life, a purposeful life, and even the practical arrangements of civilization, and often religion.

          For example, in some animal species, the young males are basically kicked out of their pack when they reach sexual maturity. They become “lone wolves” or rogues, and their principle objective in life is to find female which which to found a pack of their own–after which they will care out a territory of their own.

          The situation of human males is very similar. Human males may not be ostracized by their birth families/communities, and may enjoy a position of some sort within the community, but it will normally be a position of little importance–because they’re not doing anything important.

          In America, the “lone wolf” male has been much romanticized, mostly in Western movies. It probably can be an interesting time of life, where you wander the lonely desert Southwest (like Louis L’Amour heroes), go on cattle drives, go to sea, get in fistfights and gunfights, vanquish the bad guys, etc. As a woman, I have always found the possibility of such a life enviable. Sounds like a heck of a good time. But it’s essentially a “phase” or maturing period, where a man becomes a man by proving himself in adversity. Women don’t get to experience anything like this.

          Nevertheless, the essential nature of the quest is both to find a woman and found a community, and to become worthy of both.

          A Tennyson put it, “She is coming, my dove, my dear. She is coming, my life, my fate.”

            Good men are many. Good women are few, now at least. Women must prove themselves to be worthy of us, starting with the most basic morality. You can’t be worthy if you aren’t even human.

            As Don Juan told Carlos, Don’t assume someone is human because they have two arms and two legs.

            As the Pancatantra puts it:

            Anthea, I met a professor on Amtrak one time who explained the reckless behavior of teenaged boys and young men with the example you used.

            Throughout most of human history humans lived in tribes. Inbreeding is not best for reproducing, so when boys hit puberty it was best that they leave the tribe and look elsewhere for a mate.

            What human wants to leave the tribe? We can see from the herd behavior exhibited by Americans, which makes it easy for our overlords to use peer pressure to manipulate us, that sticking to the tribe is a strong instinct.

            But teenaged boys are notably reckless and seem convinced of their invincibility, just what is needed to get them out of the tribe exploring for a mate.

            Seemed like a likely explanation to me.

          • Rowdypiglet May 5, 2024 at 11:09 am #

            @Jarek and @Anthea, I readily concede that good men are many and good women are few – at this moment in time, in this particular culture. But I think Anthea is right in her description of what women are meant to be, what they can be under the best of cultural conditions. Conditions at present are the worst imaginable, and so pervasive that you’d almost have to live in a separate community, like the Amish, to raise children who aren’t constantly exposed to toxic behavior as the norm.

            Cultures are tolerant of different things at different times. Right now, our culture tolerates and even praises almost any behavior from women, no matter how destructive and deranged. Men, on the other hand, can do almost nothing that meets with approval and are expected to make themselves scarce or non-existent.

            It’s unnatural and can’t last. We’re meant to cherish each other, and to gain wisdom and genuine authority in our own realms. I’ve been lucky to know both men and women who have left the world a better place than they found it. Our culture doesn’t value this kind of life, but to live such a life is really the only thing worth doing.

        I think what this man is saying is much closer to what a lot of Americans’ experiences have been.

        He manages not to blame the women.

        I can’t imagine anything that is less someone else’s business how many children someone wants, or whether or not they choose to have them. Or the timing either.

        There are so many factors that outsiders just don’t know, and it isn’t as if anybody owes someone else who doesn’t even know them an explanation.

        wanye

        @wanyeburkett
        I have no idea if my own experience generalizes, but I am skeptical about takes related to the birth rate question, because none of them match my own experience. Basically, I always knew that I wanted kids, but I took seriously that it was a big decision and so I wanted to make sure that it was with the right person, at the right time, and, more generally, I worried about whether I’d be a good parent at all, if it was a good idea for me to bring new people into the world to care for.

        So, the years just kind of stacked up. When you have total control over fertility, via the pill or by other means, it’s the easiest thing in the world to kick the can down the road for a while. And I think it’s no surprise that it’s the smarter, better educated, more conscientious people who are more likely to do this.

        If you have a default culture in which the default action is to get married to have children, then people will do that without thinking. But if it’s supposed to be this huge decision and almost nobody is encouraging you to get started, then it really couldn’t be any easier to delay.

          Yes, that was the opening premise of the movie Idiocracy.

          Smart and conscientious people don’t want to produce children until they are sure they can properly nurture them.

          Nurturing children is a concept that the rest cannot understand.

          • Anthea May 4, 2024 at 11:46 am #

            @ Paula D:

            If our forbears had waited to be financially secure before having children, few of us would be here–possibly none of us. The world has always been a dangerous and uncertain kind of place. I don’t think there is such a thing as being in a position where you are “sure you can properly nurture them.”

            It’s also maybe a little ironic that “proper nuture,” to such people, may mean some very weird and negative things, such as the affordability of daycare for the kid, when he’s a week old, the prestigious schools later on, or your state’s supportiveness of “gender affirmation.” Or maybe you want to be sure you’ve mastered vegan cookery.

            Recently I was discussing this with an old friend of mine. We were both single moms for many years. We agreed that kids are worth anything–including, if it came to that, living much of your adult life on welfare in Section 8 housing, in extreme poverty. (It never came to that for either of us, though we were both very poor when our kids were at home. Later life was pretty good to both of us.)

            My grandparents raised eleven children through the Great Depression. History and literature is full of stories of families surviving and thriving on a pretty slim material basis.

            To me, it seems there is some fault involved in this demand for complete security before having children. Maybe the fault is lack of courage or lack of faith, but I suspect a lot of it is the the sheer lack of backbone to go against the pronouncements of the crowd–which decree that you shouldn’t have kids. And, of course, you’d have to find a like-minded partner.

            @ Jarek:

            Pariahs to whom? In my experience, single moms have a rich social life, a rich family life, and maybe even a rich work life. Plus their lives are continually enlivened by kids.

            I’m not sure whether this is commonly the case, but it seems to me that husbands tend to be, if anything, a hindrance, when it comes to ones social and family relationships. In many cases, husbands actively work to isolate their wives from friends and family.

            From your own account of yourself, it sounds like you are a pariah, even in your own family.

        No, mine was the original meaning of impeachment – as you would know if you didn’t have a tin ear for language or if you were able to use google.

        And your definition of genocide is the complete extermination of a people. In other words, you can’t accuse anyone of genocide until after it’s complete – thus making the word useless.

        You’re good at being wrong, that’s for sure. You admitted as much the other day, remember?

        • Paula D May 4, 2024 at 4:47 pm #

          No, that was never the meaning of impeachment. Never.
          You made it up, and then tried to bully people into accepting your definition.

          And it isn’t genocide when a population quadruples during the so-called “genocide”.
          You don’t have to kill everyone, but killing a thousand of people a year, while those people produce a net new one every 40 minutes, is not genocide.

          I said that my predictions were frequently wrong, which I have said before.
          For instance, I didn’t think that the Dems would be shameless enough to run Biden. I was wrong.
          Then I thought they’d get rid of him after two years. I was wrong.

          I’m not wrong about word definitions that can easily be checked in a dictionary.

It’s a ghetto thang. Oftentimes the wounded pitbulls get loose, are abandoned, or released, and end up running in packs, terrorizing neighborhoods.

          What I find remarkable about the Roosevelt story is the President was wearing his Colt revolvers. Can you imagine, say, Obama, riding his manservant, Reggie, in the Lincoln Bedroom, with his revolvers strapped on?

    Spoke to @CounselorDOS and expressed my sincere disappointment with the two revolution attempts of 2020-2023 supported by the former US Ambassador and those carried out through NGOs financed from external sources. Had these attempts been successful, the second front line would have been opened in Georgia.

    Besides, I explained to Mr. Chollet that false statements made by the officials of the US State Department about the transparency bill and street rallies remind us of similar false statements made by the former US Ambassador in 2020-2023, which served to the facilitation of violence from foreign funded actors and to the support of revolutionary processes back then.

    Also, I clarified to Mr. Chollet that it requires a special effort to restart the relations against this background, which is impossible without a fair and honest approach.

    I have not expressed my concerns with Mr. Chollet about a brutal crackdown of the students’ protest rally in New York City.”

    The spoiled nature of many of the protesters is not the issue with Israel. The issue is that Jews demand a racial-nationalist state for Israel while also demanding “diversity” for everyone else.

            lol statitics aren’t always correct, and If Israel is 73% Jewish what does that tell you? That tells you there are far more Jews living there than anybody else. And Christianity isn’t a race, that’s a religion. How many fags, queers, and trans people are in Israel John? Do they have pride events there?

            How many Jewish women are married or dating Arabic males or spreading their legs for black men and making racist pornographic videos on Onlyfans about how inferior Jewish men are with their little dicks to them in comparison?

            How many Jewish men are letting their women get awkward tattoos on their bodies that brand them as the property of someone else?

            How many Jewish teachers are promoting and teaching Jewish kids to hate themselves just because there are a few Arabs around who their own people are killing right now.

            Find me a single white country today where blacks are even slaves anymore aside from being a slave class to the dipshits who are weaponizing them against everyone else just to stay in power. America is certainly far more “diverse” than Israel on so many levels. So you’ve lost this argument my friend. You can walk into Israel if they allowed you and you won’t find a bunch of people speaking various different languages like you will here in America.

      Maybe.

      Undoubtedly some of the protestors are truly dismayed at the slaughter going on in Gaza.

      Undoubtedly others are paid agitators, sowing unrest to eat away at the foundations of this country for their globalist paymasters.

      Many are also, in my opinion, using the catastrophe in Gaza as an excuse to scream victimhood. Standing on the bodies of the dead in Gaza and screaming, “I’m a victim too!” Even though they are not any kind of victim. Coddled and spoiled their whole lives they know all they have to do is scream and cry to get the attention, power, money, etc., that they want. They have no idea what is going on outside of their lives, and they don’t care.

      Twenty-something women in this country – based on my experience and observations – are, for the most part, a mess psychologically. Narcissistic, greedy, and directionless, they take all they can, heedless of the damage they cause, then blame others – usually men – for that damage. Many of them are selling “intimacy” to strangers they will never even see on OnlyFans and Fansly – yet their lives are devoid of any real intimacy, and are instead filled mainly with conflict.

      Not all of them however. Young women with an education in science seem to be doing fairly well psychologically and socially – even though for the most part, they have been brainwashed by the MSM – mainly regarding anthropogenic climate change and its proposed solutions. Few or no tattoos or piercings. No hysteria or screaming. Functioning relationships. I’m not saying there’s hope – there isn’t. We’re doomed. But some young women have avoided the mind-fuckery that most seem to have succumbed to.

        Just because Hamas is fighting with Israel does not make them Iran’s proxy – except in the cartoon world of the MSM. Iran is Shia. Hamas is Sunni, and more than that they are Palestinian. They not need Iran to encourage them to fight Israel, they have their own reasons.

        Hezbollah is Iran’s proxy – while also Palestinian with their own reason for fighting with Israel. Iran and Hezbollah are both Shia. My understanding, which seems to be backed up by the evidence on the ground, is that Iran is not encouraging Hezbollah to attack Israel, because Iran is seeking to avoid the larger regional conflagration that Israel seems to be attempting to ignite.

        If Iran is provoking Hamas to attack Israel, then why aren’t they also encouraging Hezbollah to do the same?

        Have you read Revelation lately.

        God is NOT a kind entity, if humans do not measure up to His standard. He kills them. Revelation is all about the killing of non-conforming humans.

        Yahweh gave the human race a way out of sin by sacrificing His son. He has given Grace to mankind.

        But a human still has to measure up. Those that do not go in the Lake of Fire.

        Most of humanity will be consumed by the Lake of Fire.

        Jesus will be the leader of the return, so much for your idea of a benevolent Christian God.

    James, everyone knows the student protesters are not Hamas, not Hamas sympathizers and not a cheap knock-off of Hamas fighters. The students are protesting Against Genocide. The saying “never again” originated from the Jewish People who were the victims of a Genocide. By definition, never again MEANS never again a Genocide.

    The students, along with the common people all over the world, have taken up the Jewish People’s “fight against all odds” ~ have taken up the Jewish Banner ~ joining them in saying Never Again.

    The oxymoron in THIS case is: the protagonist is the Israeli Government. You ask yourself, as I am asking myself; how can this be ?? It is what it is ~ but not by My Hand.

          Ben if you’re looking in, I’m sure you saw the story about the 3 missing surfers in Baja, Mexico. One American and two Australian brothers. Their torched truck was was located first then the bodies. Is it known in the Surfing community that Baja is a dangerous place? Because the article I read suggested events like this are not that uncommon. Why go? Why not just surf in SoCal?

          • benr May 5, 2024 at 9:52 pm #

            I stopped going to Baja twenty years ago after I saw a series of beheading pictures from a Rosorita dance club.
            Around the same time, they started hanging bodies from bridges.

            The reason to go is empty surf and still fairly cheap trips.

            I know a guy from San Deigo bought house on the bluffs overlooking a point called Salsapuedes this was in the mid 80’s.
            He leased the land for 99 years and spent $100k building a pretty nice house.
            The outside he kept humble but dumped a ton of his money on the inside.
            He left one weekend came back two weeks later and his house was sitting on the beach after a rainstorm flooded the house and the concrete pad right off the bluff.
            To make matters worse the local Mexicans were ransacking whatever was left.
            He was then told he could not build another house and was forfeit the land.
            He was also missing another car a motorcycle and an extensive surfboard collection.

            I worked with a lady who went down to Scorpian bay with three other people.
            She was raped at gun point repeatedly while the three guys she was with were tied up and forced to watch.
            The then stole everything and these four people had to walk on in their underclothes and shoes minus everything else.
            She never really recovered from that event.

            I know of several people who have been in the desert near Mexico but on the American side who had everything stolen at gun point and had to walk out of the desert with the clothes on their backs.

            Mexican linguist lived in TJ bought a brand new car, had a decent condo in TJ and was robbed of said new car while waiting for her garage door to pen in a gated community with roving security guards.

            I have personally been shaken down for money by corrupt cops.

            As a teenager my mother and I were riding horses on Rosarito beach and the Mexican marines confiscated the horses.
            The scam was they split the deposit with the horse owner.
            The horses were back in the little stalls waiting for the next sucker.
            The kicker I watched my mother start arguing with teenage Mexican kids with m-16 and started the I am an American citizen you can’t do this to me.
            I literally told her you have no rights here get of the horse before they shoot us both.

            We rented a bungalow on the cliffs near where the Rosarito hotel is still I believe it was called Felipes and when I opened the closet to put the luggage in there someone one had taken a shotgun blast to the face and their brains were still dripping down the closet wall.

            They are watering down the booze with poorly made alcohol in many resorts causing all sorts of health issues.

            I have been as far South as one can go in South America and the only other country I ever felt as unsafe as Mexico was Brazil.

            Watched a gun fight on the beach over a boogie border and a regular surfer running into each other.

            Guy shot dead twenty feet away from me.

            Yeah Mexico is bad.
            Never travel early in the morning or at night.
            Stay in pay campgrounds and hotels do not drink and get drunk, do not do any drugs.
            It is not worth it in the end.

      • Jarek May 4, 2024 at 1:35 pm #

        Yes, Ben Gurion told them to get rid of the Palis but the world was watching and they became afraid. They failed! And that failure may be the see of their downfall.

        Just as our lust for cheap labor made us ignore Jefferson’s clarion call to remove the Blacks beyond the seas. Or was it more than greed? Did the secret Brotherhoods already have an idea that the Blacks would come in handy some day?

        • OG May 4, 2024 at 4:40 pm #

          Of course, the canal that Israel plans to build through Gaza is named in Ben Gurion’s honour.

        You are using long-term trend-line statistics to pooh-pooh the recent and current genocide, Heckler. The Palis’ Gaza population sure the Hell hasn’t grown this last half year, right?

        35,000+ dead, 78,000+ wounded, 221,000+ residences obliterated are all commonly understood to be the bare minimum carnage since Israel’s 9-11 [Registered Trademark].

        According to my math, that’s 1,750 9-11s to the Palis.

    China killing off 100.000 Americans with fentanyl last year while zero Chinese died of fentanyl to me is genocide. We have genocide every day, every year. Is it right? Young people are popping pills while they protest.
    So, if you were the leader of Israel, what would you do? Would you sit back and get bombed on a daily basis?
    We all know how the Jews operate. However, they have the right to peace. I don’t care what they do, the Arab world will hate them.
    War is hell. People get killed in wars both soldiers and civilians. Sometimes civilians are a soldier’s worse enemy.
    If you were getting bombed on a daily basis, you would have a different opinion. In this world, if the punishment is so bad, people will have second thoughts of misbehaving.
    Should we give Hamas a “TIME OUT”?
    Some of you who post are going to get a real wakeup call in the future. You have no idea how tough things can get. An APP on your phone won’t fix this, I’m sorry!

      Jim, speaking of lunch, how’s your garden shaping up? Have you planted anything yet, or will you?

      I have seedlings all over my window sills at home here and it’s still too cold for many of them to transplant. Maybe the arugula…

      • Anthea May 5, 2024 at 3:38 pm #

        @ The Man They Call Zazelle:

        We have all the brassicas in, and a row of carrots, and some flowers. The tomatoes and peppers should have been planted about May 1st, but the weather has been uncooperative: continual rains.

        We have decided that this may be a lackluster year–and we’re okay with that. My daughter has the baby to contend with, and I seem to get older every year.

        The rabbits have been nibbling on the brassicas, and my daughter can’t find time to fix the garden gate. I need to get out the .22.

        I have developed a fondness for cannas, if they’re the kind with the multi-colored leaves, like Pretoria, Durban, and Tropicana. I ordered rhizomes and planted them in pots indoors about a month ago, and only one out of four came up, though, on inspection of the rhizomes, the laggards look healthy enough. I’ll probably end up buying the plants at the garden center.

          Happy-Belly Gardens ^u^

          Lovely flowers, I’m getting an education…

          As for your tomatoes, last summer it was unusually damp, foggy and rainy and indeed my tomatoes didn’t do well.
          Fortunately, I hadn’t planted many anyway. Best with yours in any case.

          This year, I have roughly 20 seedlings on the go; 10 of some cherry tomato variety and the other 10 a beefsteak variety if recalled, both seed-envelopes bought from the grocery store.
          So nothing extravagant, like a funny-coloured convoluted heirloom or any seed-saving. Maybe next year.
          (I did save butternut squash seeds last fall from a store-bought squash, and have a few seedlings from its seeds on the go, along with capsicum.)

          Rabbits make for good eating. With your 22? Gut, skin, cook and eat it? I’ve only done that with fish. A 22 is the only gun I’ve ever tried.

          As I may have mentioned, I decided (as additions to my green teas) to cut/use only the top of 3 store-bought lemongrass stalks and plant their lower halves to see if they’d sprout. 2 succeeded, much to my pleasure and are doing quite well so far: One was planted in soil and the other was rooted a different way; half in water. It has since been transferred to soil.

          Of course for my green teas, I also have lemon verbena ready to go (with 3 other clippings-in-progress to add to the five plants) and lemon balm, a perennial that overwinters fine here, that’s already growing in the garden, along with rhubarb, chives, strawberries and the garlic planted last fall (all doing super-well already).

          • Anthea May 5, 2024 at 11:11 pm #

            I am still hoping for an okay garden and thinking we are just off to a late start. One big problem is that it appears that the riding lawnmower, which is very old, has crapped out. Lots of time has been lost working on the mower. My daughter has a tendency to take on too many projects and obligations, and she’s finding that, now that there’s a baby thrown into the mix, she doesn’t have enough time.

            Hopefully we’ll get out two 50-foot rows of tomatoes and one 50-foot row of peppers planted soon.

            I wound up with six poke plants. A couple of years ago, I noticed that eating it lowered my blood sugar–at LOT. I need to grow it in the garden, as I can no longer walk all over the place looking for it.

            I’m behind on planting flower seeds, too.

            “My daughter has a tendency to take on too many projects and obligations…” ~ Anthea

            I can empathize and have been struggling a bit with that lately.

            50-foot rows of stuff is practically industrial-scale. ‘u^
            Unsure how long my plot is… maybe 25 feet? I’ll have to casually measure it with my feet next time. I probably have too much stuff for it and might have to give away some seedlings, which is fine.

            With your flowers, do you see any hummingbirds? And have you thought about dispensing with the mower and adding mulch or woodchips or something like that where you wouldn’t have to mow?

    • OG May 4, 2024 at 3:14 pm #

    The Guardian

    Ukraine on Wednesday presented an AI-generated spokesperson called Victoria who will make official statements on behalf of its foreign ministry.

    The ministry said it would “for the first time in history” use a digital spokesperson to read its statements, which will still be written by humans.

    Dressed in a dark suit, the spokesperson introduced herself as Victoria Shi, a “digital person”, in a presentation posted on social media. The figure gesticulates with her hands and moves her head as she speaks.

    The foreign ministry’s press service said that the statements given by Shi would not be generated by AI but “written and verified by real people”.

    Jarek: Yes, nothing represents the fake state of “Ukraine” better than a light skinned Black digital person with a Chinese name.

    What are the ancient Hindu texts that discuss the social and legal status of women?

    The Laws of Manu, also known as the Manusmriti, are a collection of Hindu scriptures that outline the social and moral code of conduct for ancient Indian society. The laws are attributed to the sage Manu, who is said to have been the first man created by the gods. The Laws of Manu are considered to be one of the most important and influential texts in Hinduism, and they have had a significant impact on the social and cultural practices of India for centuries.

    Regarding women, the Laws of Manu prescribe a strict code of conduct that emphasizes their subordination to men. According to the text, women are considered to be inferior to men and are expected to be obedient to their husbands, fathers, and brothers. The laws also emphasize the importance of women’s purity and modesty, and they prohibit women from engaging in activities that are considered to be unbecoming of their gender.

    Some of the key provisions of the Laws of Manu regarding women include:

    A woman must never be independent and must always be under the control of a man (Manu 5.148).
    A woman must be subject to her father in childhood, her husband in youth, and her sons in old age (Manu 9.3).
    A woman must never leave her husband’s home, even if she is unhappy or mistreated (Manu 9.90).
    A woman must always be obedient to her husband and must not speak back to him (Manu 9.94).
    A woman must not engage in activities that are considered to be unbecoming of her gender, such as wearing men’s clothing or engaging in physical labor (Manu 2.67).
    These provisions have had a significant impact on the social and cultural practices of India, and they have been used to justify the subordination of women and the restriction of their rights and freedoms. However, they have also been criticized for being patriarchal and oppressive, and for perpetuating harmful gender stereotypes and gender-based violence.

    It is worth noting that the Laws of Manu are not universally accepted as authoritative in Hinduism, and there are many different interpretations and criticisms of the text. Some scholars argue that the laws are not necessarily representative of the views of all Hindus, and that they are not necessarily binding on all Hindus. Others argue that the laws are an important part of Hindu tradition and culture, and that they should be respected and preserved.

    Brother AI

    Jarek: Thank you, bro. Manu is the Man. Women must never be left alone without male help and guidance. The father gives his daughter to a husband and his wife to his sons upon his death, actual or in terms of renunciation.

    But of course as in real Islam (not fundamentalism), there is something above Sharia Law. Some women will also renounce the world. Right now I’m reading the sayings of Lalla Yogeshwari, the mystical poet and naked dancer of medieval Kashmir.

    If and when White Sharia is formulated, or should I say reformulated, we must leave room for exceptions, those who transcend the Law or who can’t live up to the law at all.

    Similarly, America itself must be refounded, with the Law being reverenced but not worshiped per se. And the Law must be based on morality and morality on religion – for most. As Washington himself said, Those few who can be good without God are few, being both highly educated and strangely formed. And the Law is not written for such anomalies – the Law is for All!

    There have been a number of videos over the last several days showing (mostly) White boys on college campuses beginning to push back and treat the Marxist vermin with the mockery and disdain they so richly deserve. And of course there was the “counterattack” by the Joos on the UCLA encampment earlier in the week. Being the unrepentant colonizer and oppressor that I am, I thoroughly enjoyed the cosplay Jihadis getting the shit kicked out of them – alas there were none thrown off the roof but everything in its time. All this is a way of saying that the spring is tightening and the armies that will fight CW3 are assuming their inchoate structures. At UNC, there was even a moment that had the faintest echoes of an iconic flag raising a long time ago (the best part for me was one of the dudes protecting the flag telling a screeching bloated elephant seal of a protester to “lose some weight”). It’s close but my second favorite thing was the videos of cops throwing “Palestinian” flags on the ground like so much trash – it’s good to know and it’s incredibly thoughtful of old George but should another toilet paper shortage arise, there will be plenty of these flags to wipe our asses with).

    I think the “brave” gluten-allergic protesters will have an extremely short shelf life when it all goes down. The attempted redemption of maggots saturated in Marxist horseshit for the entirety of their lives will be (correctly) deemed a waste of everyone’s time and the ancient and visceral impulse of a healthy society to rid the body politic of the unhealthy will obtain. Since these DoorDash Maoists find Communism so appealing, I think a little Khmer Rouge action with a plastic bag over the head would be the most poetic means but time will tell on that front.

    As far as the old man-gina contingent goes, I realize that the menstrual angst is more acute when contemplation of genocide™ brings on the cramps and excruciating nipple pain. You’re all as hysterical as a Canadian eunuch searching for tree roots at a Catholic residential school. It’s a pisser to watch and as much as I enjoy the yuks, I would recommend that you go join the encampments and “globalize the Incontinentifada”. The pimple-faced useful idiots shouldn’t get all the fun – the Metamucil crowd should represent as well. The added benefit of potentially seeing you get pummeled when the “vigilantes” show up would certainly be worth the price of admission but we all know that, alas, in the end none of you will be willing to leave your basement…

        I wouldn’t mind living in a tropical area, particularly in a mountain setting where it gets a bit cooler and maybe is more subtropical in nature. It would be more stable actually than a temperate environment/climate. But you do have the occasional cyclone and all.

    “New York hedge fund manager George Soros is one of the most politically powerful individuals on earth. Since the mid-1980s in particular, he has used his immense influence to help reconfigure the political landscapes of several countries around the world—in some cases playing a key role in toppling regimes that had held the reins of government power for years, even decades. Vis à vis the United States, a strong case can be made for the claim that Soros today affects American politics and culture more profoundly that any other living person.”

    Soros, by words and actions, intends to use his wealth to change the world.

    “Those agendas could essentially be distilled down to three overriding themes: the diminution of American power, the subjugation of American sovereignty in favor of global governance, and the implementation of redistributive economic policies—both within the U.S. and across national borders.”
    discoverthenetworks.org/individuals/george-soros/

    He has amassed his wealth by exploiting capitalism, and wants to fix the flaw.

    “Calling the global capitalist system “deeply flawed,” Soros maintains that “as long as capitalism remains triumphant, the pursuit of money overrides all other social considerations.”[10] As Soros sees things, capitalism “is today a greater threat than any totalitarian ideology.”[11] Lamenting that “the richest 1 percent of the world’s population receive as much as the poorest 57 percent,”[12] Soros suggests that only by reining in “global capitalism” can that gap be narrowed. He further complains that global capitalism, by encouraging the free flow of money across international borders, reduces the vital “ability of the state to provide Social Security to its citizens.”[13] “The globalization of financial markets has rendered the welfare state that came into existence after World War II obsolete,” Soros explains, “because the people who require a social safety net cannot leave the country, but the capital the welfare state used to tax can.”[14]”
    discoverthenetworks.org/other/the-shared-agendas-of-george-soros-barack-obama/

    The flaw can’t be fixed, unless, as Klaus Schwab promotes, all nations participate.

    It appears that his (Soros) belief’s are the same as the UN 2030 Agenda, Clinton’s, Obama’s, Biden’s, Sander’s, Warren’s, and many members of the CFR, and there is plenty of evidence that they are implementing the UN 2030 Agenda.

    Recently:

    Russia and China’s ‘no-limits partnership’ could see joint invasion of Taiwan, US spies warn
    msn.com/en-us/news/world/russia-and-chinas-no-limits-partnership-could-see-joint-invasion-of-taiwan-us-spies-warn/ar-AA1o5kfj

    The “Biden Administration” has been desperately trying to get all nations to adopt the 2030 Agenda, but it is becoming increasingly clear that “human nature” is going to prevail; so, what happens to “Joe Biden” and the 2030 Agenda, with a prostrate America, if they do not get all nations to participate?

    Will they consider population reduction on a global scale a success? My guess is: Yes.

          Long lines at OTB. All of humanity there pouring over the racing sheet, sweating, scratching their heads, consulting with their friends — what a mob, its Kentucky Derby Day! I get to the window, the clerk is literally buried in cash, stacks of it piled up all around him. I’m not a big bettor: $10 on Mystic Dan to win. Plus I’m placing bets for family and friends, some of which are pretty complicated (exacta, across the board, trifecta)

          OTB is in a Hispanic neighborhood, not 10 miles from my house but I feel like I’m in a foreign country. Puerto Rican music blares from lowriders, and a sidewalk preacher with a powerful loudspeaker blared his message across the city in a Spanish we couldn’t understand. I said to my wife “We aren’t in Kansas anymore.”

            That seems so low tech. In Canada, we just use our smart phones to bet.

            I know OG, but I like going down there once or twice per year, have a look around, talk with other people, see what the vibe is. Until a few years ago this old couple would show up in a Mercedes on Derby Day, in the middle of the ghetto, dressed up like they were attending the race in Kentucky. It was really quite charming.

            Besides, gambling off my phone would make it a little too easy for me to place bets and I don’t trust myself to keep it under control.

    Chris Cuomo says he has a covid jab injury and wants a 9/11 style committee to investigate the covid jabs and side effects. Well. the committee would have to have teeth and be fully put through purity tests to make sure they’re not pharma and/or intel minions. But the NYT is talking about it now.

    revolver.news/2024/05/chris-cuomo-covid-jab-injury/

    • Paula D May 4, 2024 at 7:59 pm #

      So he just now came out with it? Hmmm, I seemed to remember that he was fired for some bogus reason.

      Oh, look. It was in Dec. 2021. You know, most likely after he had taken the jab and had the symptoms. Is it true that he never mentioned it? Or did talking about it get him fired?
      Jimmy Dore and Eric Clapton both fell for the propaganda and took the jab, and both were heavily attacked for saying they were injured.

      But look who was involved in the excuse to get Chris Cuomo fired…

      “While the contours of Chris Cuomo’s involvement with the governor’s office were reported several months ago, the specifics were detailed in a massive document dump on Monday. The documents – released by New York Attorney General Letitia James after an investigation into the governor – showed that Chris Cuomo, while working as one of CNN’s top anchors, was also effectively working as an unpaid aide to the governor.”

      • SoftStarLight May 5, 2024 at 4:36 pm #

        Letitia James, ha! Very interesting connections and now it all makes a little more sense. Working for Biden to shut Trump down and any talk of covid jab injuries. No doubt it is all part a a big criminal conspiracy. Julie Kelly and Mike Davis are putting out a lot of information about this whole effort by Letitia James, Jack Smith, Alvin Bragg, Fani Willis et al. in coord. with Merrick Garland and DOJ.

    I mentioned near the end of last CFN that the GLT has been quiet lately and suggested new categorizations for CFNers:

    Doves: CFNer opposed to $61B to Ukraine and opposed to $26B to Israel
    Bibi Bum-kissers: CFNer opposed to $61B to Ukraine but for $26B to Israel
    Zelenskyy Zanies: CFNer for $61B to Ukraine but opposed to $26B to Israel
    Hawks: CFNer for $61B to Ukraine and for $26B to Israel

    SSL & I are both doves. What are you?

      • OG May 4, 2024 at 7:48 pm #

        I know that this seems unbelievable, Heckler … but scout’s honour:

        I bet $20 on Mystik Dan to win just 5 minutes before the race. I did it through a friend as I don’t even have a gambling account. Mystik Dan was the first horse bet of my life.

        I just had a feeling.

    ‘The order-in food and beverage gambit suggests we should understand that this is not so much politics as the acting out of a game….’

    Maybe I missed something, but I saw the Columbia protestors hauling up food in baskets by rope.

    ‘Another observer on “X” who styles himself @J9_ATX identified the syndrome in play as “oppression envy,” among women seeking compensatory validation for occupying such a privileged niche on Planet Earth as a cushy Ivy League college — featuring international cuisine stations in the dining halls — while their third world sisters trudge…’

    Nothing but fanciful psycho-projection by @J9, maybe feeling guilty about his own status. How about ‘oppression anger’ felt by these students? They may be quite naive about the long-term picture, but I get the sense that a lot of this outrage comes from the slaughter of 30,000 to 40,000 Palestinians. Are they just pawns? Maybe so, but I join them in their outrage.

    ‘You’ve got to wonder how they’ll make out when “Joe Biden” drafts their ass to go fight the Russians out on the Ukrainian buzzard flats, about which the White House is just now sending out early signals.’

    What a whopper! He may ‘draft’ them to fight the MAGA crowd, but other than that there’s as much chance of that happening as another attempt to take Vietnam.

    “Nobody’s right when everybody’s wrong”.

    We talked about the matching Ukrainian flags waved by Congress, and I compared it to the matching flags waved by Bostonians when their overlords let them out of lockdown.

    Looks like it’s happening in Georgia, also.

    “On a side note, watching all the clips out of Georgia, there sure are a lot of EU flags flying about, people waving them, people wearing them, but I’m in the heart of the EU and I don’t have clue where to buy one, I’m sure they are available somewhere but I’ve never ever seen them in stores of any type anywhere.”

    Another commenter on MoA then testified:

    ”About a decade ago I attended an anti NATO protest in Prague. A large group of counter-demonstrators showed up with a ludicrous amount of NATO flags. I noticed further down the square that they were being handed out to the right sort of people from a large cardboard box.

    A few years later there were the red-card protests against then Czech president Zeman. The gimmick was passing out football related red-cards to university age protestors, who were then photographed en-masse waving them. Someone got a very clear photograph of the cards being handed out from a cardboard box in what could be deemed the “staging-area”, and on this occasion there was an address clearly visible. It was traced down to the home address of a secretary working at the US Embassy.”

    The optics are always important, PR-wise.

    The alarming poke-the-grizzly effort goes on, in spite of a sense of impending doom, as detailed in this excited “Microsoft News” article on the ATACMS missiles supplied to Kiev, the latest whizbang Wunderwaffe that Shall Turn The Tide Toward Freedom

    “This strategic capability, as OSINT analysts and the Institute for the Study of War assess, has allowed Ukraine to target military training areas approximately 50 miles behind the contact line. Videos geolocated by Osinttechnical, affiliated with the Centre for Naval Analyses, and GeoConfirmed suggest a multiple ATACMS strike, within the space of a minute, delivered a deadly payload on Russian forces in the village of Rohove. The precision and ferocity of these attacks are indicative of the growing sophistication of Ukraine’s military response, enabled by international support.”

    Should the Russians respond by lobbing a few into Belgium or Germany, NATO can then chirrup “See! See? We told you so! They’re going to overrun Europe!”©

    For those few readers with functioning memory cells in the brain, the contemporary whip-up-the-war-fever in corporate media articles is truly astonishing (and not very encouraging).

    Helpful hints on “What to do in case of a Nuclear Attack”… and do I not feel 1950s déjà vu creeping in at this point?

    From 11 times away it sure looks like the “parents” are speed-freak maniacs ready to burn down the house before the sheriff shows up to foreclose on it and the “children” (350m+) feel lost, helpless and deeply bewildered. But too intimidated by their armed mommy and daddy to do anything but run.

    The only hope – and it is a pretty forlorn and quixotic one – is that a cabal of colonels will eventually get together, form a posse and root out the varmints. Without the firepower (maybe “fire fighting fire”, as certain doggy elements will follow deep state faithfully into the conflagration, no matter what, as Vlad pointed out) or at least the threat of a revolt, a cowardly congress and entitled deep state will never back down.

    Unless indeed, and this is less and less farfetched as the clock ticks down, those in charge of those in charge – reptilians, satanists, aliens curious to see a race demolish itself – are indeed ready to rock with the strategic exchange.

    I think you have to be over 70 years of age to vividly remember the deep fear of the early 1960s. Now of course the weaponry is much more sophisticated, automated and deadly.

    And the citizenry (the children) apparently feel they can do nothing about it.

        1991

        USSR breaks up with us offering assurances that the USA and Europe will help with economic help to Russia and Gorby to recover from the Arms race damage done to Russia.

        A year or two later, that promise was ignored and Russia was on its own.

        Well they did recover, by getting away from the USA dominance for a couple of decades and turning away from Europe. Putin’s weakness has always been economic inferiority, but rapidly now that weakness is going away.

        Now Putin has discovered the ultimate weapon against the USA to plot his revenge.

        BRICS++. We have seen nothing yet. Story today showing that some of the weaponry being used against Ukraine is coming from NOKO. The USA Biden Mob is just ignoring the ascension of the BRICS++ group.

        OG, what do you think, is BRICS++ the rise of the Anti-Christ and the start of the Revelation?

        And is the Deep State is the USA rise to incompetence under whoever a symptom of the oncoming power of the Beast?

        Is the ascent of BRICS++ the earthy kings that are going to try to defeat God? A lot of current events. IMHO, are starting to match the start of the End Times.

          FWIW

          “Soros, in turn, had connections with a young economist whom he had been funding—Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Harvard Institute for International Development. The U.S. Agency for International Development assigned Sachs’ Institute to oversee Russia’s transformation to a market economy after more than seven decades of communism. As a consequence of this assignment, Sachs and his team essentially represented the United States as official economic advisors to Russian President Boris Yeltsin. Soros worked closely with Sachs on this project, and the pair held enormous sway over Yeltsin.152 So great was their influence, in fact, that on one occasion Soros quipped that “the former Soviet Empire is now called the Soros Empire.”153 But before long, members of Sachs’s team became involved in massive corruption, exploiting for personal gain their access to Russia’s political and economic leaders. Their actions contributed to the collapse of the Russian economy and to the diversion of some $100 billion out of the country.154 Though Sachs himself was not accused of profiting personally from these activities, he resigned as director of the Harvard Institute in May 1999, under a dark cloud of scandal.155 The U.S. House Banking Committee investigated the matter and called Soros to testify. The billionaire denied culpability but admitted that he had used insider access in an illegal deal to acquire a large portion of Sidanko Oil.156 Soros further acknowledged in Congressional testimony that some of the missing Russian assets had made their way into his personal investment portfolio.157 House Banking Committee chairman Jim Leach characterized the entire sordid affair as “one of the greatest social robberies in human history.”158”

          Armstrong contends that BRICS++ is solely an economic union at this juncture, in order to circumvent Western control by the SWIFT.

          Push come to shove, I can see it developing in other areas like you have been promoting for some time.
