On War and Wars

“When we see the few truth-tellers who are the stars of their organizations jettisoned – Tucker Carlson from Fox News, Matt Taibbi from Rolling Stone, Glenn Greenwald from The Intercept, James O’Keefe from Project Veritas… we must face the fact that there is an organized conspiracy to suppress truth.” — Paul Craig Roberts

     The weird part the news media isn’t telling you about World War Three is that America’s main enemy in this struggle is… the US Government itself! America is looking like that crazy person on the street, punching himself in the head. How else do you explain this epic act of national self-destruction?

     The “Joe Biden” regime is “standing up for our democracy” by trying to silence all and any public speech about what it does in the world and how it treats its own citizens. Meanwhile, the entire scaffold of American life crumbles and you are supposed to not notice it’s happening. The funny part is that the Democratic Party thinks this is an election strategy. The funniest part of the funny part is that we bother holding elections at all.

     You understand, “Joe Biden” is only pretending to run for president again, in the same way that he’s only pretended to be president the past two years. Are we to believe, for instance, that the old zombie has become a fervent Maoist? Or that he follows any known structured political philosophy at all, other than cashing checks from favor-seekers from all  over the world? “Joe Biden” is pretending to run — no matter how preposterous it seems — because his handlers know that only a titanic pretense of political strength can stave off the reveal of his family’s awesome criminality and the fall of everyone hitched to that broke-down wagon.

     So much for the funny stuff. Things are getting to the point where we stop laughing. It’s only a question now of how the calamity rolls out. There are so many more parts to our national fiasco and they are all out-of-hand in the most disastrous way. The Ukraine project is a big part. It was prodigiously stupid to provoke a war at Russia’s door-step and the side we backed, the Nazi-ish Zelensky regime, has already lost. You just don’t know it because the American news business is a joke on the American public. It reports nothing honestly.

     Ukraine is the last in a string of hapless military adventures that has exhausted America’s credibility in the world, especially as regards our military superiority. (Think: Russia’s Kinzhal hypersonic missile.) There will be many unexpected consequences of the Ukraine screw-up. One will be the crack-up of NATO, which has only been a false front for American military power. Germany couldn’t fight its way out of a duffel bag with what it’s got, and it is supposedly Europe’s leading economic power. The sad truth is that it will stop being any kind of power without the cheap Russian natgas it was running on, and later this year Germany will be in a panic to try and restore its horribly damaged trade relations with Russia to get that natgas. Since NATO’s essential mission is to oppose Russia on everything, that will be the end of NATO. Europe will return to what it has always been: a region of squabbling national interests. Let’s hope Europe does not become again the slaughterhouse it was in the last century.

      The failure of the Ukraine project could easily stimulate a collapse in Europe’s banking system, which would instantly spread to America’s banking system as obligations dissolve and payments stop. The net effect of all that will be the vanishing of a whole lot of capital, including the money in bank accounts, the money invested in stocks and bonds, the money lodged in pension plans, and the money controlled by insurance companies. As I’ve mentioned before — it’s worth repeating — you can go broke two ways: you can have no money, or you can have money that’s worthless. We’ve been steadily following the latter path through the “Joe Biden” years, but we’re close to simply not having money at all. Being broke will get Americans’ attention. And the first place they’ll look is the party in power.

     Multiple scandals have finally caught up to “Joe Biden” and are escaping the formidable suppression apparatus erected by the Deep State’s legal department. Attorney General Merrick Garland himself is now directly implicated in obstruction of justice by an IRS whistleblower. The allegation is that Mr. Garland interfered in the case against Hunter Biden in the Delaware US attorney’s office and lied about it to Congress. On top of that comes a new allegation, with hard documentary evidence (testimony by former Acting CIA Director Mike Morell), that Secretary of State Antony Blinken and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan arranged, as “Biden” campaign officials in 2020, for fifty-one intel officers, including five retired CIA directors, to sign a phony letter denouncing the Hunter laptop as a Russian disinfo project, knowing it to be untrue. A case can be made for that amounting to election interference.

      All that is fairly fresh news. For many months, it’s been known that Rep. James Comer (R-KY), Chair of the House Oversight Committee, has possession of bank records that show more than a hundred instances of the decanting of millions of dollars from foreign lands into various Biden family accounts. Doesn’t look good. Looks impeachable.

    On top of all that, observers are reporting that more than ten thousand illegal immigrants a day will be crossing into the USA from Mexico in the weeks ahead. Alejandro Mayorkas’s Dept. of Homeland Security and Mr. Blinken’s State Department have made arrangements with international NGOs working through the UN, to systematically conduct these immigrants across the border, furnishing them with pre-cooked phony asylum documents. This week, Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) introduced legislation to allow unrestricted immigration to any person claiming to be LBGTQ. Co-sponsors of the bill include Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. How is any of this a re-election strategy?

    It’s not. If these matters are not adjudicated, it will be a civil war strategy.

        I prefer the hypothesis that human civil institutions have been infiltrated by another species that plans to control earth and those of us left after demolition of our values is complete. Humans are proving they are no match for this superior species. We prefer flight to fight, a strategy that will not win. Suicide is not a battle plan.

        • Ron Anselmo April 28, 2023 at 10:35 am #

          Exactly chopper – we need to learn to eliminate our fear. As it relates to a fight or flight response – in the absence of fear – flight is not an option, the default response is to fight.

          • Beryl of Oyl April 28, 2023 at 10:42 am #

            There is another response. Freezing.

          • Ron Anselmo April 28, 2023 at 11:31 am #

            Beryl – not temperature. You mean “frozen” in fear, right? If so,
            eliminating fear, eliminates the freezing option as well – nothing left to do but fight.

          • Beryl of Oyl April 28, 2023 at 11:42 am #

            True, Ron.

          From Transexual, Transylvania”

          • chopper April 29, 2023 at 6:27 am #

            Something with more control than traditional human, political and civil consensus has in short order turned western values upside down. Yes we can point to the flaws of human behavior, economic forces, even foreign influence, but those do not account for the speed and uniform direction with which western civilization(s) have abandoned educational, medical, economic and judicial common sense. The strings of control are attached to a force we do not see, and the puppets we do see are all destroying, in like manner, the institutions we depend on to continue a stable and productive future. So I leave readers with the question; what is at the other end of those strings?

          • Ron Anselmo April 30, 2023 at 2:28 am #

            chopper – pure evil – no other explanation. Nothing less than pure evil manipulating the strings.

          Our species is clearly susceptible to mind control. We’re easy targets. Flipping the switch between Awake and Woke is battle for the future of humanity.

          • Cankerpuss April 28, 2023 at 11:24 am #

            Humanity will survive this battle. But what will it be like when it emerges from the rubble of a once great society of plenty?

          • SuperDave April 28, 2023 at 2:50 pm #

            Don’t think if it as mind control…more like “training”

        • Cankerpuss April 28, 2023 at 11:23 am #

          I post the hypothesis that humans have de-evolved, western humans particularly. Decades of plenty have soured people to reality and their minds are no longer functioning as they once were and can no longer freely think for themselves. Television, I-phones, computers are now the reality that has caused an evolutionary shift in brain functions. We are witnessing an evolutionary change in humanity. Morally vacuous. Stupid. Lazy. Fat. Useless. Gullible. Arrogant. Greedy. This is the new humanity. This evolutionary change will surely lead to another. What will it be?

            “Just over 7% of the US adult population identifies as LGBTQ, according to a Gallup poll published in February. This figure has risen with each passing generation, with 20% of Generation Z (those born between 1997 and 2004) identifying as LGBTQ, compared to 11.2% of Millennials, 3.3% of Generation X, 2.7% of Baby Boomers, and 1.7% of those born before the end of World War II.”

            And the West thinks it is going to fight a land war against Russia with an army consisting of the sexually confused? Boots on the ground are worn by Males doing what males have always done in almost all species. Fighting, winning, and breeding with the most desirable females of their species. Some more advanced tribes like wolves or elk have evolved mechanisms for ritual warfare that allow them to sort out their breeding order without using up all their winter fat reserves. But humans have developed nuclear weapons instead.

          • Ron Anselmo April 30, 2023 at 2:40 am #

            realwinnerdonotcheat – you make an excellent point about loving, and especially, fearless parents. Many times, I’ve said that – because children take cues from their parents – fearful parents raise fearful children and conversely, fearless parents raise fearless children.

            To wit: Covid was a perfect example. Masked, terrified and hysterical parents masked up their terrified children. Meanwhile, my boys wondered what all the fuss was about. But then again, we live in the freest part of Free Florida – North Florida.

            If mom and dad are still around, thank them for raising you to be fearless. Always remember, fear is a disease.

          Anyone who considers plant food, aka, Carbon Dioxide, to be a toxic is a loon and not worthy of consideration. RFK jr, considers Carbon Dioxide, aka plant food, to be bad for the planet.

          That alone tells me he is nothing more than another worthless political shill in it for the personal glory and wealth that always follows every politician.

          I mean, I find it fascinating that a person can enter Congress making $180K per year and leave Congress a multi-millionaire. Nobody else seems to care, but I do. That’s American politics today. Rape the public treasury, enrich ones self. Nobody cares. It just keeps going and going and going. No justice. Nobody is watching the watchers. Nobody gives a damn.

            Most people have it too easy all the time so there is no reason to get upset with the status quo. Of course there is a small percentage that don’t. I remember during the depression no one had it as easy as we have it now.

          • Jarek April 28, 2023 at 12:03 pm #

            Yes, AOC went to a ball wearing a gown that said, Eat the rich – but she was already a millionaire after a few short years in Congress.

            The real Left has caught on to her of course.

            A millionaire but she couldn’t pay back the rest of her student loan or get her grandmother’s roof fixed.

            Dating a white boy, but she picks one that doe not know how to fix a roof.

            Most Puerto Rican women know that’s the reason you date a white boy in the first place- for the higher standard of living that comes with not having to put up with broken stuff.

            The whole Greenhouse Effect thing is a legitimate scientific concern, just the whole “climate change” movement is way out of proportion to the reality of the problem. The economic damage done by their quack agenda is far worse than any environmental damage out there. Wind and solar are not viable methods to power a modern economy, only nuclear and hydro electric can actually replace coal. Furthermore nothing is going to replace jet fuel, if we want air travel we need oil period. Right now the economy is way too fragile to embark on this “green” boondoggle. A realistic plan should be to replace our coal fired power plants with nuclear gradually over the next 40 years. But since we are ruled by women (the female voter) we won’t get common sense solutions but hysteria and fantasy projects.

        “I notice that Bobby Jr. is now cautioning us against “retribution”.” ~ Beryl of Oyl

        My concern is that there is only a short period of time before some combination of Xi and the WEF/Build Back Better/The Great Reset gain sufficient power to where the citizens no longer have a say in their destiny.

        Some politicians have pointed out that disparity is an issue that should be addressed, but there has not been a comprehensive discussion of this issue.

        Last Monday The Man They Call Zazelle posted the following:

        “Back in Classical Greece, Plato suggested that in a just society there should be no more than a 5:1 spread in income between richest and poorest. That was a hard sell then, and still would be…

        Given the seriousness of what we face, this is a conversation we must have. The wealth already wrenched from nature might just be enough to buy us a lasting future if it were shared, managed, and ploughed into solutions.”

        For there to be any hope for a say in our destiny, the population will need to unite (and “retribution” is not a unity ingredient). The only person I see that has any hope of accomplishing unity is Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and my read is that in his recent speech he recognizes disparity as being a major issue.
        youtube.com/watch?v=68MhtliIAvk

        If he is one to allow and promote an open discussion of the issues that confront the world, why should we assume that his position on issues can not be changed?

          The RFK Jr. Tapes by David Samuels

          “Does it hurt you when you are painted as a nut? Or do you not give a shit?

          I wouldn’t put it in either of those ways. I would say that the way that I do decision-making is to just say that what other people think of me is not my business. It doesn’t mean that I don’t care, but I’m just not going to pay attention to it. I’m going to make decisions based on science and reason. If you can show me the evidence, you can change my mind, and I’ll admit that I was wrong, happily.

          But don’t try to do it through bullying or through intimidation, because I’m just going to say, “No, show me the evidence.” I try to live my life in a way where I only got an audience of one—which is my conscience, my higher power, and my wife—and I try to live a life of integrity.”

        Yes, and last week Germany closed the last of its nuclear power plants. Without nuclear power, Russian energy imports, and the shutdown of coal mines, it will be interesting to see how Germany keeps its industry running and the nation operating. Presumably it will be done with solar panels & wind turbines providing all necessary energy, which I think is the plan.

        • Cankerpuss April 28, 2023 at 11:19 am #

          No, Germany will be just fine. I have been hearing croakings of doom about Germany. Hell, I remember last fall predictions that the German people will freeze to death due to the lack of natural gas. Did Germans freeze to death? No. Nothing seems to happen. Things just keep marching on as they are. Debts grow. Energy supplies diminished. Currencies debased but people still just continue plodding along. Nobody gets angry. Nobody does anything. Governments still march to their insanity.

          Nothing happens. I keep waiting for one of these “predictions” to finally come true, for something to finally open the flood gates but…….nothing happens.

          • NickelthroweR April 28, 2023 at 11:45 am #

            The Germans didn’t freeze because they circumvented the sanctions by buying Russian energy from 3rd parties and paying a premium for the inconvenience.

            I could survive the loss of the grid during Winter for about 2 months before my supplies of propane and firewood ran out. After that, I could survive but I’d have to downsize dramatically like heating just one room or eating precooked packaged food.

            The Germans find themselves in the same situation. It just isn’t apparent to us that every household is packed into that one room to stay warm.

          • Beryl of Oyl April 28, 2023 at 12:31 pm #

            Yes Nickel I have a large tent I could put in my basement, and I have a number of sleeping bags and if you have enough wool clothing etc. You might even survive with no heat, but that’s all it would be, surviving.

            That’s what some of the Indian tribes did in the colder climes. They all hunkered down in a structure with a fire in the center, vented out the top, and breathed smoky air and lived off their fat.

            It can be done.

            Actually, there was quite a lot of starvation among Native Americans in the late winter.

            I would welcome an end to idealizing and mythologizing Native American life. , Many tribes had virtually no knowledge of agriculture. They often had to resort to eating their horses to get through the winter. They often were under pressure from other tribes. Many died brutal deaths at the hands of adversaries.

            It was inevitable that an “encounter” was going to occur between Earth’s technologically advanced societies and the less advanced societies of North and South America.

            Messy, yep.

            Messy, too, when Genghis Khan and his horse-mounted horde swooped west out of Asia. The Golden Horde controlled most of the Ukraine until Muscovy “broke the Tatar yoke” in 1480. The Russian Empire finished the “encounter” job by taking control of the Crimea and the Kazakh khanate in 1783 and 1847, respectively.

            @ Beryl of Oyl:

            One of my friends has another friend who decided not to work for a living. She inherited her mother’s house–which Medicaid will take for compensation, but she is allowed to live there until she dies.

            My friend tells me that she can’t heat her house in winter, so she pitches a tent in one of the rooms and lives in the tent all winter.

            Of course there are other ways to manage without central heat. One is the Japanese kotatsu. Historically, the Japanese did not have anything in the way of home heating in the winter, so they spent the winter around the kotatsu. This is a low table covered with a quilt, with a piece of wood the size of the table on top, to provide a hard surface. A space heater can be placed under the table. The lower half of your body is under the table and covered up with the quilt. Historically, the Japanese used a small charcoal-burner under the table.

            The main problem with this in modern homes is that you’d have to have minimal central heat to keep the pipes from freezing.

            The kotatsu was always my plan for using in case the electricity went off or there was no heat for some other reason.

            I do keep a space heater under my computer desk all winter–but no quilt. Keeps me comfortable when it’s cold outside.

            Actually, Canker, yes many Germans did have a hell of a winter last year after the Nordstreams were blown up by Joe Joe Magoo and the blessing of our unelected neo-socialist chancellor and card-carrying manlet Olaf Scholz.

            The trick they have pulled to date is to import energy from other countries, so that they can continue to destroy Germany’s infrastructure for Klaus Schwab behind a Green figleaf.

            In Wyoming we are just emerging from the Winter from Hell. The wheat fields that should be turning green are just emerging from the snowbanks. The Wyoming Range mule dear herd that winters in the Eastern deserts lost every single fawn born last year. Yes, they will survive, but recovery will take years.

            If Germany experiences a Winter in 2023, and Russia decides to divert all its NG and oil to it’s BRICK partners and not allow them to re-sell it to Europe at a 4x mark up, Germany may yet look like our mule deer herds.

            TH – on water, I used to think the same thing, but 3 days is an oft-repeated myth. Just came off a 7-day, hard, dry, fast.

            Fast is self-explanatory, dry means no fluid intake at all, hard means no exposure to water – no showering, no swimming, no washing hands, not even brushing teeth.

            Was at 178 lbs, from a 201 lb start – so 23 lb weight loss in a week – with only slight, barely noticeable fatigue. After rehydration, 190 lbs, so an 11 lb loss of body fat. Days 1-3, the body runs down glycogen stores (stored carbohydrate energy) to near zero.

            Days 4-7, the body goes into ketosis, burning ketones (stored body fat) as an energy source. The metabolic breakdown of fat releases hydrogen, which combines with O2 breath to form a minimal amount of H2O for survival.

            The health benefits of various fasts are staggering, from weight loss, to detoxing from processed food, to eliminating disease, to stem cell regeneration at the bone marrow level.

            For me, the fast was much more – a little personal experiment – I have a wife & two sons and a few other dependents in a grid-down scenario. The longer I can go without – the more time I can buy for them.

            We’ll need to know our limits ahead of time, allowing us time to calmly think, in a fluid, chaotic, and rapidly changing environment. Grid-down will be all of that. WY a good place to ride it out. I’m jealous.

What real things can a sensitivity reader or a trans youtube influencer actually do other than cancelling their betters?

    Trans teens forced to FLEE Texas to Minnesota in order to find the sanctioned (by law) Dr. Mengele clone/butchers who are willing to chop off healthy body parts for profit. apparently led by a new “trans” legislator (get a load of it in the photos).

    I put this in the comments of the last post, but it’s worth seeing again. If people see these photos & the reality of the butchering, might they finally snap out of the stupor? Then again, so many have seen the scars across young women’s chests and shrugged or called it “stunning and brave.”

      I did not, nor will I, click on the link you provided. I don’t want to have that etched in my brain for all time. But the people making these laws should have to. One MN GOP senator sent an email to all of his senate colleagues that included a link to video of such procedures last week. He was reprimanded and accused of distributing graphic sexual video without cause. The email did not contain the actual footage, merely a link, making it their choice to view or not.

        “A trans-identified male politician who drafted a bill declaring Minnesota a “refuge state” for the medical transitioning of minors has proposed an amendment to state legislation removing a stipulation that prohibits “sexual attachment to children” from being classified as a protected sexual orientation.

        Leigh Finke, 41, is an elected Representative to Minnesota House District 66A and is cited as a chief author of HF 1655, a bill which seeks to establish gender identity as a protected category and aims to remove rights act sections of existing legislation “that allow for discrimination based on sexual orientation.”

And to have to go through more surgery and reintegrate into their old life or maybe a better version of the their old life is just so sad.

      @Mary — If you’d have told me even 10 years ago a doctor would do this to a child I wouldn’t have believed you. And now this gender mutilation surgery is demanded as a “right.”

      This would stop in an instant if the insurance companies refused to pay for it. Not everyone signing their confused (abused) kids up for mutilation can have Medicaid. Insurance companies have no problem denying care for truly sick people but are too cowardly to say no to this.

      • Jarek April 28, 2023 at 12:12 pm #

        Perhaps being a doctor is intrinsically dehumanizing, at least in our modern system. One has to desensitize oneself to human suffering or one won’t be able to last. And surgeons focus on their technique and the job at hand – not the person. Add to this the onerous weight of the medical bureaucracy, motivated by profit, and you have a perfect storm.

        • SW April 28, 2023 at 12:28 pm #

          You’re right that doctors or anyone working directly with the sick have to have some kind of emotional distance to do their job effectively. But no one can or should use that as an excuse to do harm. The Hippocratic Oath — First, do no harm. — recognized centuries ago the power doctors had to do great harm if they abandoned ethical, responsible behavior.

          You make an interesting point, Jarek, about surgeons. It reminds me of my father’s explanation about certain kinds of music. My father was quite a fine musician, he played the “fiddle” as he would put it. He called some pieces of music “virtuoso pieces”. These were pieces that were not especially “good” music, but were designed to showcase the performer’s technique. Thus the surgeon can display his proficiency by turning a male into something that, to the untrained eye, looks like a female.

          • Jarek April 28, 2023 at 1:06 pm #

      • MaryQueen April 28, 2023 at 1:11 pm #

        The doctors will still do it even if insurance doesn’t pay, for those who will pay out of pocket – but it would slow it down, that’s for sure.

        Yes, I would not have believed this 10 years ago, either.

      • Rowdypiglet April 28, 2023 at 2:35 pm #

        @SW, it particularly enrages me that genuinely sick people struggle to get insurance to pay, and any serious illness leaves the victim with huge bills. Yet this, which is actually an extreme form of physically damaging cosmetic surgery, is increasingly covered.

        The medical/pharma industry has been searching for a long time for some condition they could monetize that would (usually) not kill the “patient” outright but would require expensive care – drugs, surgeries, psychiatric “care” – for the rest of their lives. This is not the first invented disorder that they’ve tried out on confused adolescents and blown up into a fad. Remember anorexia? Every other teenage girl was anorexic for a while there, but it didn’t suit their purposes well enough because it did no permanent damage and the kids eventually just forgot about it.

        They learned from their previous attempts and now understand that they have to start working on them at the earliest possible age. By the time they reach adolescence, they’re so confused, unhappy, and entrenched in a system of rewards and punishments, that they have little capacity to resist.

        And yet – I think the whole trans thing is very much a “look over there” distraction from the bigger things they’re doing with little to no opposition. It’s just that the threat to children, distraction or otherwise, is one that most people cannot ignore. It’s not a price we’re willing to pay, and they know it.

        • SW April 28, 2023 at 4:18 pm #

          The medical field is such a mess it’s hard to know where to begin. The trans are an opportunity for the progressives to grab the spotlight for themselves to proclaim their enlightenment and universal love and courage for standing with the outcasts while providing a red herring (extra bonus points). But the tide is turning and some common sense is beginning to gain ground.

          Anyone with a brain can see the trans Nashville shooter was a woman and she shot little kids and adults trying to protect them. Yet the focus was on guns, guns, guns and worry that a backlash would harm the trans community.

          And the trans community really showed its hand with this one. Instead of condemning the shooter it reminded silent. Silence is assent.

          A distraction? In the Bible, the demons often refer to themselves as they/them. And as Baphomet, the Devil is imaged as both male and female.

          The Trans fits very well into the world the Elite are trying to create – far better than procreative heterosexuality.

          Very interesting piece at Unherd on exactly this topic: how the trans confusion has replaced anorexia as the “problem” that seems to solve other typical adolescent girls’ problems. (And don’t forget bulemia along with anorexia, as one of the “body image” challenges that girls face.)
          NB: The adjective is “anorectic,” not “anorexic.”

          httpX://unherd.com/2023/04/is-trans-the-new-anorexia/?tl_inbound=1&tl_groups[0]=18743&tl_period_type=3&mc_cid=ea21fb2f0f&mc_eid=8a008a1ec2

          I can well remember how resistant I as a preteen was to the reality of the inevitable. Ugh. I really wanted someone to make it stop. I had to have back surgery as a youngster, and I asked the doctor whether he could give me something to prevent periods etc. He said it was not possible.

          Another issue is, or was (not sure how this stands now, with earlier onset of puberty), that girls “mature” at different ages. Those who “mature” early are the butt of projected hate/fear/envy/confusion from the other girls (and jokes and teasing from the juvenile boys). Adults, including “well-meaning” avuncular males, make open comments in social settings as to how a girl is “developing” —not that different from creepy comments made by Uncle Joe). All of which puts a telescope on their bodies. So there are plenty of actually rational, reasonable, grounded=in-reality reasons for some girls to dread these out-of-control changes and wish to wave a magic wand and make it all STOP.

        Medicine doctors are in large part “groomed” for their role as pill dispensers by their intense psychological immersion in medical school. Once they emerge into practice their continued employment, paying off their bills, and becoming wealthy is dependent upon not challenging any aspect of standard practice. They are guided in this path by Pharma’s sales force who introduce them to the latest and greatest (and most expensive) new medicines and assist them in multiple ways up to assisting in specialist aspects of surgeries.

        Is it not surprising that along the way many lose sight of admonitions to do no evil or refrain from encouraging people to violate the Nuremberg Accords and perform medical experiments upon entire populations? And become monsters rather than doctors.

        Yes, and without (so far) any recourse. I do think there are now some legal cases going on, but I don’t harbor much hope. Some of the victims may have to shut up if they do receive any compensation – so that the public stays mostly ignorant of what went on.

    Morning Jim – excellent as always. Thanks as always for your insights & articulating same in simple, concise language. That’s your gift (to us).

    They keep their foot on the pedal because we won’t come to the defense of our own – and they know it.

    Watch the Cape Buffalo defend their own against a pride of lions. They defenseless single buffalo bellows and the herd responds in kind – viciously & violently running down the lions – taking the fight to them, the predators.

    After Katrina, Blackwater illegally disarmed American citizens – the citizens bellowed and no one came. The J6 prisoners bellowed – confined for over 2 years, many in solitary and no one came.

    Fear is a disease. Have we become so sick that we won’t even defend our own? Probably. So why would these people take their foot off our throats.

    For heaven’s sake, even mahi-mahi fishermen keep the first caught fish in the water, so the school will stay close – attempting to help their own.

    One would guess we’re higher up the evolutionary ladder than fish and the Cape Buffalo – but maybe not. We’ll get just what we deserve.

Data shows that the Covid-19 vaccine has prevented millions of hospitalizations and deaths from the disease.”

          She just stated that as a fact and moved on, not even letting the viewers know what he said that they considered “misinformation” or “false claims”.

      That’s what all the division was for. Most Americans don’t know who they are defending against.

      Not too long ago, there was a major campaign in the media, telling young Americans that it was their fault that they didn’t make enough money to live on.

      Americans were too lazy and didn’t take the right kind of courses in school. STEM was the way to go.

      That was the opposite of the truth. You notice that they just quit saying that?

There is a lot less of that now. coming out of the Sudan And the American public has hardly looked up from their TV or their Nachos BellGrande to notice.

          Most don’t know where Sudan is and the MSM has barely said a word about it. Another One Bites the Dust must be Blinken’s theme song.

          But there was a nice infomercial about a new weight loss drug (pretending to be for diabetes) that costs 1k/month and you have to use it forever or weight comes back. Pharmaceuticals are right up there with the military-industrial complex.

    ‘Being broke will get Americans’ attention. ‘

    Damn right!!! Americans have been living in a SET of intertwining delusional realities including but not limited to those of military superiority, financial superiority, stability and invincibility, and, of course, covid issues of many stripes. On top of that, we’ve got the craziness of gender bending, pronoun bs, and a whole generation of blue hair schooled but uneducated losers that will be called up to fight and lose WW3, and try to manage the after wreckage.

    When food, housing, medicines, transport, and fuel are to expensive to readily afford, or simply not available at all, the delusions will crack and (many) people will come to their senses. That’s when CW2 starts. WMBH Much later.

      I don’t think so, Neurodoc. People are too lost, too brainwashed. They might get angry about being broke but they’ll blame the local credit union, not the Federal Reserve. Why? Because most Americans are so damned stupid they believe water comes from the tap and beef comes from the store. They have no idea where their drinking water comes from and how it gets into the pipes that lead to their taps. They have no idea the work involved in getting a calf grown to an adult cow and the effort behind getting that cow to the slaughter house, processed and onto the grocery store shelves. They don’t care. They don’t even know what the Federal Reserve actually is and does. Anger might come but it will be totally misdirected and the wrong ones.

      • neurodoc April 28, 2023 at 1:26 pm #

        Unfortunately, I cannot completely disagree with your assessment of the level of stupidity out there, esp of kids coming out of HS or college, who have no idea of things work, such as you describe in the processing of a cow to the grocery store. No idea. They No concern about it.

        What I’m trying to articulate is that people are living in a delusional fog consisting of matrices of delusions, all of which combine to make the average person appear to be more stupid and to act more stupid than should be the case (delusions de-focus the person REALity). I was trying to say that MANY but by no means ALL people will wake up to reality in the face of hunger and lack of things they need. Those people will by necessity become more grounded, i.e. dealing with making and growing things, ala 1800’s; many others will go completely nuts (being off their meds and in a high stress state), stealing and plundering and many will suicide, directly or indirectly. I believe that the people who become more independent and reality oriented as noted above will group together with like minded people as communities, regions and maybe even states or at least parts of states (that’s clearly happening now, as one looks at the state to state migrations). Those groups will ultimately have conflicts between each other (over water rights, land boundaries etc, right out of the 1880’s) and between them and less independent groups who will try to pillage. That’s the start of the CW I’m proposing. Who really knows?

  6. Alfred April 28, 2023 at 9:48 am #

    I have for many years ruminated, fantasized, feared and half-assed prepared for civil-war 2.0 in America. But I just don’t see it happening.

    When we defocus from the manufactured outrage issues, Americans get a sense of our commonality and our humanity. Before you take another’s life you will see them more like you than you think.

    In civil-war 1.0, a very large percentage of the guns found on the battle field, in the hands of dead soldiers, were never fired. Even the American military struggled until the Viet Nam era to instill the killer instinct.

    What is more, much of the opposition is made up of young people, our sons and daughters, our friend’s and neighbor’s sons and daughters. We won’t kill our children.

    I fear many, with good cause will flail themselves against a wall of inertia needlessly chasing the illusion of the America we were indoctrinated with as youths ourselves. That never was.

    This is not a fight to make a stand in. This is one to walk away from. I would prefer national divorce, and some kind of property settlement to outright civil war.

    • MaryQueen April 28, 2023 at 10:53 am #

          The country is under attack?

          From whom? Russia, uh no. China, economics only. NOKO, never.

          MAD still is a fact. Mess with Russia or the U.S. ultimately means self destruction for the fool trying it.

          We hear about all the land based weapons systems and the surface navy.

          Big whoop.

          MAD is rooted in submarines, big FBMs carrying enough firepower on station to destroy any opponent. Neither side has a solution to the submarine’s invulnerability. ASW is a joke, these quiet running subs are undetectable. As both sides can destroy the other, sanity prevails.

          Now, the real enemy of the USA is its own Deep State trying to become a Uniparty dictatorship by destroying the entrepenueurial spirit in America and making the people dependent on the government. Remember “Moscow on the Hudson”? Making fun of the Russians standing in line for toilet paper? Memories of the US having to do the same thing are still fresh.

          AND THE COVID VIRUS IS NO EXCUSE!

          BRICS++++ is planning the demise of the USA. Did you see that Xi is talking to Zelensky about setting the war with Russia? Next will be an invitation to join BRICS+++ to eliminate the corruption in Ukraine that the USA caused, specifically Biden’s Mob.

          Would the destruction of the Mob in the US be worth the ascendancy of BRICS+++? That abomination is being discussed on this blog actively.

            “Who is the number one enemy of the goodness of the US?”

            Why that’s easy. The moral rot that governs the USA, and has captured and keeps under lock and key the election process. Just for one.
            That this evil has consolidated and conquered in the decades since the coup of November 22 1963 seems all too evident now.

            That it originated from Wall Street’s Praetorian Guard (CIA) and the JCS (the executive structure for kinetic ops of the MIC) was a natural partnership made in Hell.
            JCS leader General Curtis LeMay had to have had the biggest hard-on of his life while attending the Bethesda autopsy of JFK, puffing so hard on his cigar that the attending doctors demanded he put it out.
            LeMay just glared at them. I’ll hazard a guess he even gave them a “Fuck You!” smile knowing he and Dulles had pulled it off, right down to having snatched the body from its rightful place of jurisdiction, Dallas. Then Allen’s appointment to lead the Warren commission? I’d be smiling too. And I tend to think they’re still smiling.

            The “ascendancy of BRICS” an abomination? Hmm, that’s one take on it, a bunch of countries asserting themselves out from under the murderous extortions of both the British and U.S. empires going back to the Opium Wars—wars to keep populations addicted to narcotics, nation-destroying ones at that. (Iran has a place in this conversation too.)

            The Chinese-Indian labs of fentanyl, that wretched stuff, using the same tactics against their former oppressors has a certain element of poetic justice about it, that said knowing how it affects all of us, my own family included.
            Is what it is though. Like they were just supposed to forget? Like “let’s let bygones be bygones?” It sucks when your own tactics are turned around and used against you.
            “The sins of the fathers will be visited upon….”

            So it all comes back to the 19th century Occidental dynasties. They’re still pulling the strings for THEIR class interests, nothing to do with the pee-ons, as most of us are perceived in their eyes. Their depopulation schemes are “for the good of us all” after all, as are their rights to control all of the world’s resources and territories, their ongoing and relentless reasons for hating Russia into infinity. They finally had it made (so they thought,) they got their good taste of raping Russia in the 1990s, but then fate in the form of one V. Putin stepped up to the plate.

            Our Owners will have no qualms sending our young off to fight their bugaboos once again to satisfy their rightful (in Their eyes) aggrandizement schemes once more. All they have to do is turn up the heart-swelling music, wave that flag harder and higher.

            But something’s terribly wrong with this picture. They force-jabbed the entire enlisted military of this country while the vax regimen pedigree for all of the immigrants being hustled in via the southern border (including the military-aged men) seems to include no such clause.
            Whatever could be the matter….?
            I cannot answer that, but do believe it will all be revealed soon enough to those of us who notice such things.

            Great post, Dave.

            But I think the importation of fentanyl was started to get the attention of Americans off of the heroin epidemic, which started when the US invaded Afghanistan in 2001, and released the opium growers from prison, and guarded their fields.

            I remember the rapid increase in heroin addiction and deaths, and that Americans, due to social media, were making the connection.

            And then they suddenly switched to “Oh, no, it isn’t heroin, it’s fentanyl. Nothing to see here”.

            And now that the US is out of Afghanistan, the heroin has dropped to almost nothing, but the fentanyl is rolling on.

            Coincidence? I think not.

          • Ron Anselmo April 29, 2023 at 2:45 pm #

            Paula – very good point, never looked at it from that angle – the correlation you make seems clear.

            As the drums beat In the run up to war – getting the “terrorists” who orchestrated 9/11 – claim was made that the Taliban used illegal drug proceeds, ostensibly from heroin, to fund their operations. One of the many lies sold to the American public. (to cover the lies of 9/11 of course).

            The Taliban were against heroin production and drug use and sales on principle – mainly religious. Production under the Taliban was pushed down – averaging less than 3K tons annually from 1994 to 2000.

            Enter the US in 2001. Under the watchful eye of the US military, production went to 7K tons in 2007 – all the way to 10K tons in 2017.

            Now back under Taliban control, production will decline rapidly again, according to their wishes.

            The lies never end.

      I saw the war in Bosnia/Serbo-Croatia up close and personal as a US Army Contract Doctor; people from the same communities (mixed muslim/orthodox) killing each other with abandon. People who worked in the markets and saw each other often would kill each other during water hole sniping attacks with NO remorse. Working as an ER doctor early in my career here in the US, I saw gang killings (inner city and hillbilly) done by neighbors to each other based on lines in streets or hood/country boundaries.

      What I’ve seen to be one truth is that when STHF (or if life gets tougher) people will kill each other for the other guy’s food, money, weapons, drugs or women, and sometimes for the pure hell of it (adrenal rush; think Grand Theft Auto, for REAL). Perhaps you’ve seen something very different and softer. Congrats.

        Doc – you’re exactly right – collapse or SHTF environments foster emotional killings – based on hatred, revenge, greed, envy, thirst for power – but also killings out of necessity, due to resource constraints.

        These will also – out of the need to maintain one’s sanity – be done without remorse. It will have to be done. It will be done by those few, who have already thought through the need to be emotionally detached when that time comes, enabling them to do what needs to be done.

      While I appreciate the sentiments expressed in your thoughtful rejoinder, Alfred, I would like to see some evidentiary citations for those un-fired rifles. It paints several pictures that deserve further scrutiny.

      I’m saying this partially for wanting it to be true, but on the other hand, it goes against the grain of camaraderie and “fight or flight” survival instincts.
      There have to be adequate numbers of those whose killer instincts (kill or be killed) are present in combating groups, tribes, and nations who would have had a difficult time of ever evolving into a larger social structure if failing to mortally confront ill-intentioned enemies of our own species.

      We are so much more than passive cud-chewers and/or a contemplating-higher-ideals species. Otherwise it’s hard to imagine we’d ever have been able to keep the desires of the many psychopaths down through the ages in check. We must (and do) exist in the physical world first and foremost. Ours happens to be a normative and therefore habitual perch of comfort and perceived safety, a very ephemeral thing if the SHTF.
      By my saying “we are so much more” I mean we are also so much less than any pedestal high enough to overcome our essential animal nature.
      The will to live/survive is necessarily the highest priority for most. Our baby steps so far toward a higher consciousness has been and likely will be our lot for who knows how long? The strong and most vicious of a given moment are elementary needs for us. Keeping them in check requires always of a civilization the counsel of the wise, something we sorely lack in this moment in this country. Rather we have Nulands and Kagans, Bidens and Blinkens.

      We sit, trapped and paralyzed, under the Sword of Damocles and its single thread. Such is our moment in the sun.

        There was a book called “On Killing” that discussed the “problem” of soldiers refusing to fire their guns, and how the US military dealt with that problem.

        He didn’t mention the Civil War, but he did talk about WW1 and WW2.

        My mom’s co-worker was part of the June 6th, 1944 invasion of France, D-Day. He told her that he just hauled to shore as fast as possible and then hid. I have to think that he was not the only one.

        Dyer, Gwynne. War: The Lethal Custom. In chapter 2, “Anyone’s Son Will Do,” Dyer quotes Col. S.L.A Marshall, who says…

        “The thing is simply this, that out of an average one hundred men along the line of fire during the period of an encounter, only fifteen men on average would rake any part with the weapons. This was true whether the action was spread over a day, or two days or three… In the most aggressive infantry companies, under the most intense local pressure, the figure rarely rose above 25% of total strength from the opening to the close of an action.”

        It’s been a while since I read that book, but the aversion to killing seems to be innate.

        • Jarek April 29, 2023 at 2:12 pm #

          Such groups would have been selected out by the evolutionary process. Human history is intensely violent from its earliest days, both human and pre-human. These people are degenerates or would be if the theory was true.

          Much opposition has arisen against this theory, driven by pacifist ideology. It’s probably greatly exaggerated.

        • DaveO907 April 29, 2023 at 3:59 pm #

          I appreciate that response, Alfred. Now I go on to wonder if that is not the result of the stand-off weaponry being used (technological evolution in action) as in so many previous iterations of warfare there was no getting around hand to hand combat, nor the immediate opprobrium from those who did do the fighting vs those who refused. And I’m honestly not trying to belabor the point to presume to ‘win ‘ in any sense an argument.
          The defense of kith and kin seems the ultimate point of no return and no retreat.
          Thank you for that cite.

          Isn’t it incredible? I like to play a game I call “stupid or evil.” I listen to a person speak and then I try to decide whether their erroneous view is a sign of pure evil or mere stupidity. Sometimes its both. For example, my mother’s family is a bunch of fallen-Puritan, progressive New Englanders. They are mostly evil. The Catholics who send their kids to Catholic school because they don’t like all of the indoctrination, but then turn around and pull straight “D” in the voting booth, are just dumb as a box of rocks. They should be disenfranchised, but not euthanized. The others? Well…

          I know a girl with four kids who go to Catholic school. She was talking my ear off about how crazy the world is with tranny this and gay that, etc. Then she told me that she could never, ever vote for Trump because he was so vulgar and mean. She told me “We’re Democrats,” meaning she and her entire family always vote straight Democrat, because that is what her dad told her to do 30 years ago and his dad told him to do 50 years ago. I just sighed.

          I don’t see that scenario playing out. Humans can live for weeks without food but only a few days without clean water. It will be the lack of sanitation that takes everyone out given how we have poisoned most of our surface water.

          First to go will be the desert mega-cities like LA/San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Tuscon, Albuquerque, etc. Those guys will be hit the hardest. Following them will be the rest of the cities once they run out of energy to purify toxic river water. 70% of Americans live in cities of 100,000 people or more. Those people are screwed.

          A grid down scenario would return us to population levels last seen around 1850 and do so within a year. You’ll run out of people before you run out of available food. The survivors will take up farming, hunting, fishing and gathering just like their ancestors did. After all, at the end of year one, only the fit and prepared will be left – about 30 million people.

          • Ron Anselmo April 28, 2023 at 2:04 pm #

            Add El Paso to that list too. A man who used to work in the water dept. there told me the water for the city was recycled, filtered gray water. If that plant went down, if electricity failed, there’d be no potable water. The Rio Grande gets so low people can walk across it and they do.

    But in a world where resources are finite, it is a zero sum game.

    If we trade faster, we use up those resources faster. Now that the resources are almost gone, both in Europe and the US, their hungry eyes turn toward Russia – a country with resources to plunder, resources that could keep their game going a while longer while they work on a getaway plan.

    And so here we are, the corrupt politicians using our last remaining ‘seed stock’ to feed the war machine in a tenuous gamble on the possibility of success.

    The reason for this is that a significant percent of the population has visions of an idyllic retirement, where their financial planners have prepared them for the worst case scenario of a Y2K speed-bump, and as long as they hear no evil and have Don Quixote Biden to stave-off MAGA, it will be smooth sailing to the finish line living like Kings and Queens.

        The tour introduction assured everyone that there would be excess provisions in the event of such a scenario. The evening prior to the wait-out day, you realize that there is only enough water for one individual to survive the day. To add to the dilemma, one of the terms of the tour were that in the event that you became aware of such a situation, you were not allowed to discuss it with anyone else (or else you would forfeit your all your possessions).

    Related to the “trans” phenomenon, I have been thinking for quite some time that there is more at work here, than just some looney teachers trying to recruit kids.

    I think if someone were to have told my brothers that they might actually be a girl, they wouldn’t have gotten any more than possibly a kick in the shins.

    There had to be some reason that so many boys are becoming susceptible to this sort of thing.

    I’m finding out that there is research being done on possible factors:

    Prenatal phthalate exposure and reduced masculine play in boys

    https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1365-2605.2009.01019.x

    This is the thread I got the tile of the study from:

    https://twitter.com/Babygravy9/status/1650890382589263876?s=20

    I may have mentioned this here before, but I learned through reading about the infertility industry, that in Russia they advise getting all plastics out of a woman’s environment as she tries to become pregnant.

    Russia has a higher success rate than the United States.

    I also believe that there are environmental/medical reasons for the obesity epidemic.

    We always had some fat kids, but we never say kids with all this type two diabetes.

    I stated previously as well, that just looking at the fat young women, I can see for myself there is something wrong hormonally, and no it isn’t just a simple matter of calories in/calories out.

    We are still blaming the victims though. The movement for fat “acceptance”, though, is a coverup of things they don’t want you to know about.

    I don’t have enough hard data to prove any of this. Not yet. Just theories. I know I’m right about this. Eventually everyone will see that.

    • mrs. theolddays April 28, 2023 at 11:25 am #

      And everything is packaged in plastic wrap or styrofoam too. Briefly in Texas, plastic bags were outlawed but someone in Dallas took it to court and it was reversed. It’s going to be really tough getting that crap out of the environment.

      I agree with you that all these chemicals we’re exposed to have had an effect on our bodies. Many are known to be hormone disrupters and the most important hormone in our body is insulin. Insulin resistance has dramatically increased and it’s the underlying cause of type 2 diabetes and polycystic ovarian syndrome in women.

      Whether hormones or the obesity epidemic play in, the trans agenda is a concerted effort to groom the population into transhumanism, and put women back to second class (and then some) status, with men in charge, whether they wear dresses or not.

          Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and probably other outlets will not allow you to say a word against the trans movement, although Twitter is loosening up, probably because Musk is waking up to how dead serious these people are.

          Here’s one example of resistance:

          The pushback against gender ideology in Ireland has begun

            Beryl: Feminism played a huge role in the rise of Transgendism by shaming men and teaching boys that they were inferior to women. This only increased as the decades passes so many began to seek to cease to be the evil which women hated, namely, men.

            And women were shamed for being women, and wanting a man and a family. They began to seek to be the men, especially once men were feminized or absent from their lives.

        • MaryQueen April 28, 2023 at 1:04 pm #

          On the conservative side, women are fighting as well. I am wondering how you are missing Riley Gains, and other women fighting to keep women’s sports ‘women-only’.

        • Jarek April 28, 2023 at 12:55 pm #

          Junk food fat at the very least. And add to that the hormones, from the burgers, the plastics (koo koo kachoo Mrs Robinson), and the birth control pills in the water, Beryl.

          • Beryl of Oyl April 28, 2023 at 3:24 pm #

            Something I’m confused about. I’ve read about the hormones in pee, and about the fact that municipal water treatment plants do not filter out hormones.

            What I don’t get is why the emphasis on hormones from birth control pills?

            Don’t hormones from other sources and naturally occurring hormones end up in water too?

          • Jarek April 29, 2023 at 12:34 pm #

            Good question. Don’t know. Maybe because they’re artificial, like plastics, but even more effective at mimicking the naturals?

      • Islander April 28, 2023 at 11:09 pm #

        Clif:

        Basically confirms my gut feeling that there IS a difference between types of calories. Namely, what I call junk food calories–donuts chips, Big Macs, etc. —will make you fat and even kill ya!

        Meat and fat and veg and fruit calories will not. I save all the bacon fat and use it for sauteing/frying.

        Per Clif, olive and avocado are also problematic, if heated for cooking or in their production (there was some discussion of this on an earlier thread).

        I don’t eat any low-fat foods at all. I put a couple of tablespoons of butter on my veg or potatoes. I drink whole milk. I don’t worry about my weight. I weigh less than I did in college.

        I blench when I see recipe books with all of the nutrition info for each recipe, replacing cream cheese with yogurt, etc. but the recipe contains canola oil!!

        If I want to use such a recipe (say, for a cake) I replace the oil with melted butter.

        • Islander April 29, 2023 at 4:23 pm #

          Basic take-away from the Clif-cast:

          Oils and fats are two completely different types of substances.

          This might be a good place to start in trying to get people to start using animal fats instead of oils.

          McDonald’s used to fry their French fries in melted tallow. They were much better then, I am told (I never ate any Mac food).

          Then some protesters or vegans went crazy and put a lot of pressure on the company to switch to vegetable oil.

    • badberries April 28, 2023 at 11:39 am #

      Beryl, You’re right, as I grew up in the 60’s, we always had a couple of fat kids on the playground, they had diagnosed Hormonal imbalances and we respected that. (my parents made certain we respected everyone)!

      The Walmart waddlers, we see today are a different breed. Something changed, sure, the “gut bombs” of Mickey D’s played a role but, that’s not the whole answer.

      I have a step daughter, she’s had two kids, the first was natural delivery and the daughter immediately began shedding the 80 pounds of baby fat. Within six months she was back to pre-preggers weight.

      The second was a Cesarean and after delivery, the daughter continued to gain weight. It was not a simple function of “calories in/ calories out” she returned to her pre-preggers diet but to no avail. Her hormones are within normal parameters, no diabetes, no change in meds.

      The daughter and her man are currently in crisis/separation and although I haven’t asked the father if the weight gain played a role. I’m fairly certain that it did.

      It’s tragic, especially for the two G-daughters. I love those little girls to the moon and it breaks my heart when they say they miss when we were all together. It’s the shits.

      • Beryl of Oyl April 28, 2023 at 12:16 pm #

        I know so many women who were smokers, quit smoking because they wanted to have children or at least abstained during their pregnancy, but then just could not shed the weight after pregnancy until they took up smoking again.

        It seems as though giving birth once changes things, the second pregnancy is very often nothing like the first.

        I saw Heidi Klum on television once, talking about how much faster she started showing with her second pregnancy. She said it was as if her body remembered.

        She also shocked the woman who was interviewing her, by giving actual numbers for her weight gain, and her pre-and post pregnancy weight.

        Those pictures of people at the beach during the 1960s going around are misleading though.

        People weren’t all thin back then, it’s just that an obese woman or an obese young man would not be caught dead at the beach.

        Skinny men and women were ashamed to appear in beach attire as well.

        There used to be ads in the back of magazines and comic books, for products to help women gain weight so they could wear a bikini.

        I kid you not.

        The men had ads directed at them for getting in good enough shape so that when they took their shirt off at the beach, the bullies wouldn’t kick send in their face.

        It’s odd, we went from women no longer being ashamed of being skinny, but cultivating that look, to women showing off extreme amounts of excess weight.

        • Islander April 28, 2023 at 11:17 pm #

          In my school there was exactly one fat kid, and he had a bonafide condition of some kind. We laughed at him, and his two sisters tried to stick up for him when he was able to attend school. In fact, I recall some kind of plan they came up with to save aluminum foil or something to get money for additional medical treatment for him. We all saved the string, or the foil, or whatever it was. But I can’t recall any meaningful follow-up with the plan. On hindsight it was very sad, because he was also somewhat mentally deficient. .

          He died at a young age.

          Other than that there were no fat children in our school.

    • Jarek April 28, 2023 at 12:45 pm #

      Yes, plastics and the results of women’s birth control pills getting into the water.

      Add to that the intense hatred of men and masculinity foster by Feminism, that has been taken up by academia and the highest levels of government and corporations.

    • Anthea April 28, 2023 at 2:30 pm #

      @ Beryl of Oyl:

      Another thing that I can’t find any hard data on is the increased infertility rate in women over, say, the last twenty years. It seems like there should be some data on the number of couples seeking medical help for infertility.

      One of my daughters is a millennial, and she tells me that her guesstimate is that about one in four of the couples she knows are infertile and usually seeking to adopt.

      My generation suffered from the “Fertile Myrtle” problem. Infertility was almost unheard-of. Just anecdotally, one of my friends was an adopted child and his adoptive mother was infertile. When he was in his fifties, he learned (from a spiteful relative) that the reason his mother was infertile was because she had had a botch abortion when she was fifteen. So…. Not saying infertility didn’t happen in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, but that there is more than one possible reason for it.

      Phthalates do seem to be a major issue in infertility, as they screw with the hormones. It is VERY difficult to get all the phthalates out of ones environment. Just about everything is made out of plastic, including many textiles, wall paint, floor covering, most fragrances (used in soaps, home water lines, laundry detergent, dish detergent, fabric softener, air fresheners, perfumes, etc.)

      My daughter once commented that about the only way to get the phthalates out of your environment would be to move to a log cabin in the woods and use almost no modern conveniences. The stuff is omnipresent.

      I think you’re right about the obesity problem often being hormonal.

      I’ve mentioned this before here, more than once, but about ten years ago I was diagnosed with Graves Disease (hyperthyroidism), where the thyroid hormones are in overdrive. The cure was simple: I stopped drinking tap water and drank only distilled water. I was able to gradually reduce my meds until, after six months, I needed no meds at all. Since I never went to the doctor after that for many years, I was unable to verify that my thyroid hormones were normal again. But I started going back to the doctor this year, and blood work indicates normal thyroid function.

      So, something is in the water.

      • MaryQueen April 28, 2023 at 6:18 pm #

        I believe the obesity problem is less hormonal than it is food doesn’t have enough nutrition, so people are starving, even if they eat like pigs.

        If you eat empty calories (which is the bulk of stuff most people eat) then your body is always craving actual nutrition.

      • MaryQueen April 28, 2023 at 6:19 pm #

        Yes, also something is in the water. I use a Berkey filtering system.

      • Paula D April 29, 2023 at 12:25 pm #

        When I was pregnant, I read Adelle Davis’s “Eat Right For Healthy Children”, or something like that.

        She was advocating that women should gain at least 20 pounds during pregnancy. Apparently, it was a thing for a while that women should not gain weight during pregnancy.

        OBs even gave them amphetamines to keep them thin. Davis thought that was horrible. I agree.

        I did gain 20 pounds with each pregnancy, but it was difficult to do, because I was also trying to eat right.

This, not climate change, is the real environmental catastrophe. We have created this toxic crap and made use of it, having no idea at all of the ultimate effects. It’s everywhere, in everything, and there is no end in sight and no accountability.

          Once electricity becomes unreliable due to resource and materials shortages, millions of people will be leaving the South. Maybe. I’m not exactly sure about where they can go, but I was living in the South in the 50’s when air conditioning wasn’t that common, and the commerical establishments that did have it had signs on the front windows saying “Come in – It’s cool inside”.

          My elementary school had no ac, and heat in winter was provided via steam heat coming from a coal furnace, not electric or gas. For cooling on hot days the teachers had all the windows and doors open, and a big industrial pedestal fan was blowing across all us students. But I can remember being hot in class and seeing beads of sweat rolling off my classmates. I can remember coming in from recess with temps in the mid 90’s, and us boyz would come back to class, covered by both dust *and* sweat. There was always a baseball or softball game going on, with no adults around telling us how to play or who was playing. The teachers were remote, way off in the shade sitting around a picnic table, watching everything but hardly ever interferring unless something went seriously wrong.

          We all went about our daily business here in the Southern 50’s, and we did it without ac. I wonder how many people here in the South are willing to live that way again? Unless you’ve lived down here for a number of seasons with no ac – you won’t really understand what I’m talking about. Experiences like going to bed at night still feeling the day’s heat burning on your skin, and trying to sleep in a sweaty bed. Leaving piles of wet/sweaty/stinky clothing in the hamper. Or going about your day feeling as though you’ve been wrapped in a stinking wet hot blanket all day long. It’s the humidity here in the South that makes it so miserable. Things don’t dry well, including you. Is everyone ready for this? I don’t think we are.

          • Disaffected April 28, 2023 at 5:36 pm #

            Nice! Brings back the days I spent in GA in the 80’s (’83-’89) down at Valdosta for the USAF. Worked day and night shift variously maintaining F-4 aircraft avionics systems on aircraft. Indescribably hot in the summertime, which lasted from Apr-Oct. Lived in a trailer park no less. When you ran the little wall mounted AC the whole trailer would sweat on the outside. When I worked day shift it was all I could do to go home, drink a beer in front of the AC, and go to sleep. No energy left to do anything at all. Night shift was only sightly better, but if you didn’t have AC you damn sure weren’t going to sleep past 7 AM or so. By far the hottest place I’ve ever lived. Simply unbearable combination of heat and humidity.

          • hmuller April 28, 2023 at 6:17 pm #

            I remember the summer of 1985 at Ft Benning, Georgia. You got used to the heat and humidity. And there was a thunderstorm nearly every day around 4 to 5 PM to cool things off a little.

            I live in N. Florida and worry about the heat problem way more than I worry about anything else. I’ve explored a geo-cooling system, but this requires burying thousands of feet of coiled, small diameter pipe. HOA would freak out.

          • cbeard April 29, 2023 at 7:57 am #

            I have lived in South Georgia all my life, but for a little while in NY state. I guess I am used to the weather. I don’t mind the heat or humidity. It is nice when the fall season rolls around and we usually have very mild winters. On occasion it gets really cold and then I’m longing for summer. I cannot function in extreme cold. I’ve worked a lot of hard, heavy jobs in the summer. Once worked in a cold storage warehouse full of mostly peanuts, some pecans. Most of my coworkers were black. It was the kind of job where a lot of people would hire on and on the first day they may make it until lunch time and then you would never see them again. Loading tractor trailers and boxcars with 110 pound burlap bags of peanuts in the summer heat of 100+ degrees made you tough. Working inside the refrigerated warehouse wasn’t too bad as you spent an equal amount of time working the docks loading and unloading products. Winter to me was more of a bitch than the summer.

          Jarek, it will be interesting (assuming we’re in a condition to still care) to see just where people will go as they flee the cities. Being in a cold, northern place myself, I like to think that they won’t come here where it goes down to 15 below zero in winter, and that those who are here already will head for warmer climes. It takes a lot of work and preparation to keep barely warm in a place this cold. Depending on one’s ethnicity, there are varying levels of tolerance for both cold and heat. There will undoubtedly be a redistribution, likely along ethnic lines, so I think you are onto something.

    The quote you started with — “When we see the few truth-tellers who are the stars of their organizations jettisoned…”

    They’re not simply jettisoned anymore but vilified, threatened and sued. The woman that worked with Carlson was (to me) obviously a plant. She recorded conversations that her lawyer is now twisting to make it seem :

    “The Spectator also asked Grossberg’s legal team how many of her approximately ninety audio recordings from her time with Tucker Carlson Tonight featured Carlson’s voice. They said they are “reviewing and analyzing” the recordings, which amount to “approximately thirty-four hours” of evidence.”

    And now she’s making the rounds of talk shows:

    “Tucker and his executive producer Justin Wells, who was also fired, really were responsible for breaking me and making my life a living hell,” Grossberg said in an MSNBC interview with Nicolle Wallace yesterday.

    And the cherry-on-top is the fact that poor, miserable Abby never even met Carlson.

    “Like many on the [Tucker Carlson Tonight] staff, Abby never met Tucker Carlson in person because he taped the show from his personal studios in Maine and Florida, and he did not visit Fox’s NY HQ during her time there,” Kimberly A. Catala, one of the attorneys representing Grossberg, said.”

        No offense, but predicting that Carlson would eventually lose his gig at the corporate McMedia clown car that is Fox News was not a particularly difficult prognostication to make.

        Tucker going solo is the best thing that could happen to both him and the clown world media landscape.

        The media is the nearly the only reason the tyranny of the past 7-8 years has been possible. None of the absurdities the masses believe would be a “thing” had those ideas not been implanted in the brains of the masses by the media.

        • Islander April 29, 2023 at 4:12 pm #

          Tucker could not have planned it better.

          First he gets a huge national following and name recognition.

          Then he ditches Fox ans emerges as a national and perhaps international leader.

          I don’t think that name recognition is going away anytime soon.

          And it is name recognition for all the good reasons. Tucker is immensely personable, he is mainstream, he is Mr. America.

          I would be surprised if Fox’s attempt to shut him up didn’t redpill a few folks.

      It becomes clear why the astro-turf #MeToo movement needed to be borne into the public conscience.

      The purpose is a quick and easy way to take down men who have become inconvenient. I am not saying that none of the men haven’t done bad things, but we have no way of knowing whether or not they have done the harassment, abuse or rape other than some woman’s say-so, usually 20-30 years later (I suppose in this new case more recently).

      I see Tara Reade as one of the few actually credible accusers (against Joe Biden). Of course, the #MeTOo movement shunned and shamed her and called her a liar. This is because her accusation is real: She actually talked about it and tried to do something about it WHEN it actually HAPPENED. Not 20 years later. And her own mother corroborated it, as well as others.

      Compare and contrast to Christine Ballsy Fraud (a friend’s hilariously apt name) and E. Jean Carroll, who said nothing for 20-30 years until the man they say raped them came into prominence. Pretty convenient.

      The #MeToo movement – much like the trans agenda and other victim-based psyops – exists only to provide a method of removing people who have become pesky and threatening to the ruling overlords.

      • Paula D April 29, 2023 at 12:37 pm #

        I agree, Mary. I thought the Me Too narrative was weird from the beginning and I never participated. It was too clearly another Establishment ploy.

        At first it was just about the workplace, or so I thought, and I only had 2 male bosses my entire career, so it wasn’t relevant to me at all.

        Then they switched it to any sort of pass any dude might have made in his life. That was total bullshit. Guys can be clumsy in their attempts. So what?

        I told my husband about a time when two guys I knew tried to rape me. They were holding me down and tearing off my clothes and I was screaming in fear. Some other guy heard me screaming and came in and pulled them off of me, and told them to leave me alone.

        My husband said “Well then, you were sexually assaulted!”

        And I was like, “Yeah, but I got over it quickly. It’s like being in a car and the brakes go out, and you’re sliding on the ice, and you think you’re going to crash and die, and your adrenaline is flowing, and you are really scared. And then the car stops and you don’t crash or die. You can’t compare that to someone who actually crashes and becomes a paraplegic or something. You were scared. OK, so what? Get over it.”

        That’s how I feel about it.

          It was used to try to bring down Bret Kavanaugh (who could have been blocked with far more relevant issues; I didn’t like him, but I also didn’t like the chosen mode of attack).

          In the end #MeToo seems to be just another way to throw sand into the wheels of justice.

          Replace due process with “Believe the victim!”

          I think there are a few women judges who are saying “cut the BS.”

      No, you are not paying attention. The trends are undeniable. JHK started by talking about the impact of oil depletion on the world. Look around, it is everywhere. Ukraine? Oil. BRICS++ formation? oil. USA weakening, oil plus AGW insanity? Oil. The oncoming disaster of EVs? Oil. The weakening of the Western world? Oil.
      $5.00 a gallon gasoline? Oil. Truckers in trouble? Oil, diesel. Thousands of $s in heating bills.? Oil.

      JHK has been spot on with just about everything he brought up. Extrapolating his prophecy should make you very uneasy.

      • Beryl of Oyl April 28, 2023 at 12:52 pm #

        Speaking of whites and Europe, I have been watching some of that TV show that Ukraine’s president wrote and starred in.

        One of the surprises I have gotten from actually watching the show, aside from the fact that people bought it as a wild coincidence or something, is that there are still people who also buy into the notion that Ukraine is this pitiful little Iron Curtain territory struggling to become a free nation, being menaced with the threat of the Soviet Union once again swallowing them up.

        If not for the beneficence of the freedom-loving Americans toward their peasant president, the evil Putin would crush them.

        All people have to do is watch the show, and it’s a comedy, for crying out loud, not a dry history lesson, and you’d see in simple form, what the issues are for the average Ukrainian.

        It’s all there. The political corruption, the unwillingness of the people to keep funding corrupt bureaucrats through taxes, the real concerns about Putin, the prejudice against Russian Ukrainians, NATO, all of it.

        Granted, it’s from their president’s POV, but the reality can be confirmed through other sources one you know where to look.

        Ukrainians have had their troubles from within, and from without, as they really do worry about Putin, but their worst problems are The United States and those pushing globalism.

      • TPTB-USA April 28, 2023 at 5:44 pm #

        JohnAZ, I will give them the benefit of doubt, and assume that they believe that they have the best solution.

        The problem I have with this, is that I find it illogical to assume that an immoral group of individuals would represent my best interest (or anyone’s for that matter).

        • TPTB-USA April 30, 2023 at 2:47 pm #

          They are a one trick pony because on this single issue the “Joe Biden” government is telling the truth when they say “if you are not with them, then you are MAGA”, because near every single one of them has no intention of MAGA.

            Ray Dalio has written in detail about cycles of an empire and their eventual downturn.

            One has to look no further than Ukraine to comprehend how bad the downturn can be with bad leadership at the helm.

            Several experts advised taking Putin’s offer at the start, but at this point destruction is massive, and the citizens that are forced to go to the front line and fight for Ukraine, have an expiration date of four hours.

            Anyone supporting this conflict in Ukraine is a criminal and should be on the front line fighting for that which they believe.

            The demise of the US can be managed to some extent, but we are going to need leadership material that represents the citizens at the helm in order to mitigate the downturn.

    There’s a sickening irony that this coalition of western countries has banded together to fight ‘evil’ in a totally corrupt country like Ukraine which as an ugly history. Reading ‘The Ravine’ by Wendy Lower at the moment. She writes ‘ Every fourth Jewish victim murdered in the Holocaust was from Ukraine (based on today’s borders) .’ The Nazi’s did a lot of their evil deeds outside of their own backyard, and a lot of it occurred in eastern Europe with collaborators. Ukrainians were among them. Don’t be fooled by Zelensky, the Bandarista’s are alive and well and their brutality survived the war. How will this end? With China stepping up as a mediator and showing the way through diplomacy and negotiation and with Ukraine carved up like a side of beef. Hundreds of thousands of lives lost or destroyed, cities and farmland ruined, trade alliances and supply chains brutalized for years to come. All because NATO (USA & the arms manufacturers and dealers) insisted on staging a Coup with the goal of regime change. They underestimated the leadership, military capability and proud people of Russia. The USA is now cornered with no way out. As Dr. Phil sez…” How’s that workin’ for ya”?

        Pogrom
        noun

        An organized massacre of a particular ethnic group, in particular that of Jewish people in Russia or eastern Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

        “the pogroms of the 1880s drove many westwards to the USA”

    Jim, like johnaz, you two are prime examples of the radicalization process

    You might already be there – just haven’t written about (yet) – but the ultimate truth underlies what you touched on 15 years ago

    Depletion, overshoot, degradation

    Top level planners -for over 100 years – have always known that we have grossly exceeded our carrying capacity

    So, the conclusion was to engage in king of the hill, last man standing. Subjugate foreign countries, emasculate domestic populations

    In gambling parlance, trying for the whole pot in a high low game is called going hog.

    That’s what’s happening today. US/western populations are seen as the same enemy adversary aka competition over scarce resources, challenges to power, etc

    Different targets require different weapons, methods. Foreign is color, perhaps kinetic. Domestic is Hybrid, media control, enable social destruction

    It’s all deliberante, it’s all intentional, and for people who understand limits, it’s entirely logical

    We just like the idea of reducing global pop by 7b, while at the same time restricting per cap energy consumption to pre industrial revolution levels

    now, who benifitted the most from the post ww2 period? Who still have living memories, perhaps some resentment and maybe are beligerent?

    Yes, the tall grass gets cut. It’s so obvious what is occurring, who are the targets and what the motivations are

    But the question remains, will they win? And the answer is no, but the victory will be empty. We are never going home again

          Understanding limits is a concept one learns in early childhood.

          Claiming there are limits, and that these limits are why we are experiencing what we are experiencing, while providing no hard evidence is the stuff of the overpopulation cult.

          There is a reason these concepts are not discussed in public forums with scientists, polis, and the industry folk.

          Such claims would be dismantled with ease.

    In what alternate universe is Tucker Carlson a truth teller when he says one thing in public and the complete opposite in private? Only in the universe of a delusional fantasist like Trump. Don’t kid yourselves, my friends. This is about power. The right wants it, not to help me and you but to put bucks in their pockets and in the bank accounts of their masters. Yes, oil is not a renewable resource, and that’s Jim’s contribution to cultural prophecy, but this idea that anything outside the MSM is plausible is not the road to the truth, my friends. Biden and his cronies are no more criminals than Trump and his cronies, or the billionaire thrusting money at Clarence Thomas for favors. In fact, they’re all in it together, and that includes Tucker Carlson, who’s playacting. This idea that anything one side says is false and anything the other says is true is BS at its horniest. One reason we trust the scientific process is because it’s repeatable if it’s right. Test every hypothesis you make. Don’t take the word of any blowhard from anyplace on the political spectrum or the word of some talk show guy with a microphone. Mostly, they want to push your buttons. Get you riled. It’s a commonplace method of manipulation.

    “The weird part the news media isn’t telling you about World War Three is that America’s main enemy in this struggle is… the US Government itself!”

    When someone is lying to you… the last thing they will ever do is tell you that THEY ARE LYING TO YOU. You have to figure that out all by yourself.

    Of course, The Liars don’t ever want you to figure that out. So what do They do? They try to take away your ability to think. To reason. To be grounded in a useful shared Reality. All that stuff has to go. And with that… whatever remains of your human dignity and sanity.

    The fundamental Lie that Liars tell is that THEY DON’T LIE. And once you foolishly lower your Guard of Reason down and accept that Cowpie Lie from The Liars… the rest of your ruination comes easy. You have let the barbarians in through the your gate… and They will fully have Their way with you now.

    “Things are getting to the point where we stop laughing.”

    If we are laughing we are doing so out of nervousness and shock that things could ever become as fully effed-up as they are now.

    Mama never told us there’d be days like this. Bad days? Yes, she told us that. But not that Life in the World would become a Clown Show run by the kind of people that Mama told us to stay away from out on the street. Sorry, Mama. We tried to stay away from Them. But They would not stay away from us.

    “If these matters are not adjudicated, it will be a civil war strategy.”

    Maybe things do come to a Civil War. And as Mama would tell you… that War will be anything but… Civil.

    Something I meant to post earlier-

    Bobby Jr. has said we shouldn’t be looking for retribution, but that anyone who has broken any laws should of course be punished.

    I have here a short article from the Market Ticker about the FDA:

    “That which was no longer is, and therefore “approved” by the FDA no longer means anything as they have proven they can, and will change the rules whenever they want, without notice and for those who lie about what something means when they approved that thing they not only will let that happen they consider it perfectly fine.”

    https://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=248658

    This is the problem. Look what the FDA did, they changed the rules about what a product has to be in order to be approved. Is that against the law, in itself? No. Didn’t they know what would happen when they made these changes, that many people would believe that it was not only fairly safe, but beneficial to themselves or others for them to use this product?

    But no laws were broken. My brother is dead, but no laws were broken.

If they were to be opposed, finally, with force of arms, they will not go quietly into the night. If that should happen — that we get a patriot to lead the rebellion against the Deep State — the riots (“peaceful protests”) of the summer of 2020 will be like picnics in the park. The left will have their puppet then declare martial law. At that time, members of the military will have to choose sides.

      “a 1000-year reign of terror?”

      I sometimes see the thousand year mark on the calendar referred to as having special qualities. The end of something and the beginning of something else. If I remember the prophecy stuff correctly, 1000 years after the 2nd coming of Jesus – Jehovah will open the lid to the pit of hell and let satan out to stretch his legs and get a bit of excercise. How long he’s allowed out isn’t specified, very little additional info is available in the prophecy. Then there is the Third Reich that was supposed to last a thousand years and fortunately only lasted 12. Western European feudalism did last around 1000 years maybe for some of the blueblood families like the Habsburgs. They managed to keep it all going until the early 20th century.

      People will claim that feudalism is a form of tyranny. The case can be made that feudalism was the best living arrangement available for Europe after the time of the Dark Ages. Peasants and serfs provided food for everyone, tradesmen and merchants built cities and made up a sort of “middle class”. Blueblood families maintained and trained all the military forces needed to protect a kingdom. If you didn’t have an army, the king next door or even some Muslim invaders might bust up your little hobbit kingdom and and take captives. Feudalism was a system that had three different classes of people. Everyone depended on the serfs because they grew crops needed by both beasts of burden and by people. Since there were so many of them an individual serf couldn’t possess much personal power. Power grew on a sort of feudal pyramid, in theory with the pope at the apex of the structure and the kings and emporers crowned by the pope were next in line below on the pyramid of power.

      From the serf’s point of view, this setup would look like tyranny. It was difficult but possible to go from peasant to tradesman/builder. And from there maybe to become a page for a knight and try to fight your way up to a baron’s position some day. Us folks here in America don’t like the idea of this, of being restricted by a whole set of artificial barriers towards moving upwards socially. And what’s worse is the idea of being born into your blueblood social position instead of having to fight for it. Somehow that’s not fair.

      My guess is we might have a future consisting of a very bare bones simple type living arrangement here. A system not dependent on automobiles. Getting to this point and living that way will doubtless terrify many people before they adjust to it. Perhaps we’ll have 1000 years of poverty and what might be described as a new Dark Ages. A fallen USA could have a similar effect as the fall of Rome – a period of Dark Ages.

      Montana passed a law keeping the kids from the surgery, despite the attempt by a trans-plant (lol) in their house grand-standing about it and threatening the chamber, calling them genociders. Instead of caving to the trantrum by Zooey Zephyr, a delusional man in a dress who got elected by Millenial Missoulans, the House voted to censure him and keep him from doing the same for (I think) the rest of the session/year.

      Good work, Montana! This is why the WEF increasingly wants to work at a more local level: Their resistance is now at the city council, or local state legislation level. They will soon assimilate these people unless more people snap out of their inclusivity stupor.

      In Minnesota, a Zoey Zephyr clone (although much worse, as he has openly championed pedophilia) was successful in his bid to make Minnesota a “sanctuary state” for trans kids looking to find surgeons who will willingly chop them up as was posted above.

    The mass psychosis of the Communist System was able to persist for over 70 years in the Soviet Union only because the Russian communists were able to keep absolute control over what the people read and heard. And, if anyone reached a different conclusion about anything, then he was immediately censored and “Cancelled”. When I was growing up in the US, the only thing that got “Cancelled” were TV shows with poor viewer ratings lacking entertainment value.

    Didn’t the British government leave the brave, stalwart hero Charles Gordon hanging on by a thread for weeks fighting against Muslim Jihadi’s and to eventually perish in Khartoum? Did we ever figure out whom Gordon had offended? I wonder how Dr. Fauci was able to negotiate a BioLab project with the Muslim Sudanese government? Is that a reliable business partner?

    “ While the fighting has plunged Sudan into massive chaos, one of the major concerns of the fighting was that the rebels have forcefully taken over the National Public Health Laboratory, one of the important centers for disease control and research on epidemics in Africa. National Public Health Laboratory was established in 1992 and since then was instrumental in carrying out several research projects with the help of western funding. In 2012, the World Health Organization (WHO) started supporting it and enhanced its research capabilities to a very large extent. Today, it is one of the major research centers for pathogens in entire Africa. During the COVID-19 pandemic, this laboratory successfully carried out genome mapping, testing and research on COVID-19 virus.”

    Re: “Let’s hope Europe does not become again the slaughterhouse it was in the last century.” All too often (in my opinion) the two World Wars as well as a few other European wars are attributed to the evils of “nationalism”
    I believe this is incorrect.
    The prime cause of the big European wars was Imperialism and imperial rivalry.
    With the possible exception of France (which still hangs on to a rump of “overseas provinces”) European countries no longer have any empires to their name and are extremely unlikely to reacquire any in the future.

      Actually, most overseas holdings had the option to become departments of France. These departments have exactly the same political status, administration, laws, etc. as the mainland departments. The former colonies that took up this option are faring better than those that did not, but there are other official statuses they could choose vis-a-vis France. AFAIK there is no French overseas area that is in the political limbo of Puerto Rico.

    For those here who understand what has happened over the past few years and the fact that this assault is ongoing, here is a great and recent discussion with Alex Antic, Naomi Wolf, and Malcolm Roberts about the latest findings in the Corona Hoax, global corporate coup, assault on the food supply, and the perspective at present.

    A two-part discussion that is well worth a watch:

    • GreenAlba April 29, 2023 at 8:11 am #

      Thanks, NO. Just starting on Part 2. This is fantastic. I’m finding, as time goes on, that there are more sources like this that are a kind of catch-up for people who don’t know what’s going on. The earliest interviews necessarily covered discrete issues separately, because they were slowly finding stuff out, but this type of interview is fantastic for showing the whole picture (although there are still bits not in it – so far anyway – including the nanotech issues, which are not limited to the vaxxes).

      • Night Owl April 29, 2023 at 2:48 pm #

        I found Naomi Wolf to be particularly eloquent in this talk.

        I generally like her, but she has really put the pieces together in a way that has a level of logic to it (backed by hard evidence) that makes one’s hairs stand on end.

        • thirdcoastlegend April 29, 2023 at 3:15 pm #

          • Islander April 29, 2023 at 10:20 pm #

            Her “evolution”?

            Naomi was basically on top of this from the get-go. That is, at least from 2008.

            She knew immediately what “emergenciy powers” really signified. Because according to her 2008 analysis, that was the “tipping point” in the collapse into fascism.

            The big surprise for me after watching Part 1 is the apparent role of China. Wow.

            Off to Part 2 now.

            PS. These are must-sees for everyone here, including our host, if I may be so bold as to say so.

            Nah, Islander. Third got it right. She was partially right regarding the assault on the West, but she got Trump wrong and she took the Clot Shot.

            She is a work in progress, but she is no dummy and her heart has always been in the right place. I like her a lot, but she has been blinded by ideology on more than one occasion.

          • GreenAlba April 30, 2023 at 8:23 am #

            islander – in her recent covid writings she has always made China the main bogeyman, suggesting this is basically a Chinese attack on America. She includes the rest of the world as a kind of add-on. (‘m not criticising her as I think she’s great, but people have different perspectives depending on where they are).

            I thought this perhaps made her blind to the likelihood that this is primarily an Anglo-American agenda. Obviously the WEF types plan to emulate China’s social credit system and its general taste for government by internment camp.

            I think it’s pretty obvious that the CCCP is in cahoots with the Anglo-American project (and I think Putin is as well, at some level, although there is clearly group infighting for influence).

            That’s just my impression. None of us can know exactly who’s doing what. As Mike Yeadon is wont to say, ‘I don’t know – it’s not my crime’. While it’s satisfying on some level to put the pieces of the jigsaw in place, I think he’s right to say it doesn’t really matter who exactly the perpetrators are – what matters is resisting what’s coming next (digital ID, 15-min. cities, social credit, CBDCs, attacks on our food system). And I have to say that when I go to my corner shop and the young assistants shove the card machine at me while I’m still saying ‘I’ll just give you cash’, I don’t hold out much hope, as several generations now have been groomed for this and think nothing of sharing their data and their ID with the world and his wife for the sake of convenience.

            I watched the Smart Cities session (behind a paywall, unfortunately) run by the Alternative View Conference folks on Sunday, with help from UKC. There was a quite strong view from a couple of speakers that the struggle is now at city council level. There has been a decades-long effort at using local authorities to implement globalist policies, bypassing national governments.

            Sandi Adams (who has a 3-part talk on UKC about Agenda 2030) can be seen here addressing her local council (Glastonbury) about the globalist nature of the policies they intend to implement.

            GA,

            I don’t think Covid is the whole story.

            This whole thing is a long-term plan. Covid is just a part of it.

            The Chinese think long term.

            Maybe longer term than anyone else.

            There are certainly multiple time frames in play. Multiple potential strategies and tactics. Plus, “Wendigkeit”—flexibility and quick reaction potential to new developments or intelligence.

            Me, I doubt that Putin is in cahoots with the Anglo-American project. Of course, I am not sure how you are defining this. .

            Re mayors, yes, I have read a few pieces (but not very recently) on the potential for coalitions of mayors to bypass state and national governments. For good and for ill.

            From my recent reading I am concluding that strong centralization a la France has more going for it than anything other state format currently on offer. The French Republic broke a lot of eggs along the way to create their Omelette a la Republicaine with all authority for everything basically centered in and directed from Paris.

            In fact, it occurred to me to wonder whether the French state wasn’t Hitler’s model for Germany—but to be accomplished in two years rather than two centuries.

          • GreenAlba April 30, 2023 at 9:49 pm #

            islander – I agree covid is only part of it (but I think the next fake pandemic isn’t far off).

            Putin is implementing the digital ruble and digital ID. They didn’t push the vaxxes as much as the West (although they were pushed – also people didn’t want them because they have low levels of trust in their government). Russians don’t particularly want the digital ID/CBDC either, I gather, but once you can’t even get on to the internet without it, what will people do, either in Russia or in the West?

        • Islander April 29, 2023 at 7:10 pm #

          I agree that Naomi has been a standout.

          Recall that she was zeroing in on the 10 stages of growing fascism long before the covid launch.

          For me the Chinese role is the most shocking aspect of Naomi’s presentation.

          Dr. Peter Breggin called out the Bidens as tools of the Chinese quite early on—before he published his book The Global Predators: We Are the Prey.

          I think it was in early 2021. He pointed out that both Biden and Fauci were deeply entwined with members of the Chinese elite.

          I think that fellow who blew the whistle on Hunter Biden’s bribe taking and payments to “the Big Guy” also called attention to their dealing with Chinese players.

          As I have said before, I would love to know more about what, if any, role Overseas Chinese play in these global power and financial games.

    Could be the Fourth Turning has had its 15 minutes. Deterministic theories of history can be entertaining and provocative, and satisfy the human need to make order out of chaos. The Fourth turning in a sense anthropomorphizes the flow of historical time; not quite the man in the moon but stemming from a similar region of the brain.

    Maybe I missed something and will perhaps give it another listen. But it is difficult to maintain the same belief as one may have had in 1997 in view of the Hero generation which will do the heavy lifting in the present Fourth Turning — Millennials?

    From an interview of RFK, Jr. in Tablet that has been disappeared….

    ”The Military-Pharmaceutical Complex
    I want to keep going for a little while about the pharmaceutical complex itself and the responses to COVID. It’s clear that there was a large-scale Pentagon bio-weapons program. Bill Gates was brought in as a partner for the investment in that program. Research for that program was offshored to labs in China. It seems obvious now that the virus likely escaped from one of those Chinese labs. And that there was funding for exactly this kind of research from the U.S. government at that specific Chinese lab that the virus escaped from. So why isn’t there an effort to create some kind of chain of legal responsibility for the enormous amount of damage that was done, the same way you would do if Monsanto was dumping toxins in the water?

    First of all, it wasn’t just the military that ran the funding for the Wuhan lab. It was the military and the intelligence agencies. The EcoHealth Alliance was a CIA front. USAID, which was the biggest funder of the Wuhan lab, has a long, long connection to the CIA, and they had a much bigger investment in it than NIH did. So you have all of these U.S. military and intelligence agencies who are running the lab, and then killing the investigation. So there was a State Department investigation immediately, and Vanity Fair documented how people with intelligence agency credentials from the nonproliferation branch of the State Department ordered the investigation to stop specifically because it would implicate the U.S. military and intelligence agencies.

    But I’m asking you, as someone who participated in 300 environmental lawsuits, why isn’t this a lawsuit?

    Because if you look at how it was done, they gave themselves complete immunity from liability. You can’t sue them. If you look at actually who produced this vaccine, it was not Pfizer and it was not Moderna. It was military contractors, and it was the Pentagon. They did it under a series of provisions that were created after 2002, between 2002 and 2019, that allowed the Pentagon to evade any regulatory authority.

    I’m not talking about the vaccine, though. I’m talking about the damage done by the virus itself, which is a man-made creation.

    Oh, I misunderstood your question. I think there will be litigation on that, eventually. I feel we have enough evidence now that if I were allowed in front of a jury, that I could convince virtually any jury in our country that we made the virus, that this was a U.S. government and Chinese government collaboration.”

    I would argue that organized political resistance does not just automatically happen. There are internal psychological emotions like fear which need to be admitted and discussed (particularly the potential methods for overcoming such fear).

    Another important issue is deference to authority which appears built into any socialization process. What types of conduct are conducive to overcoming such deference and then taking the first steps to establishing a new authority?

    How exactly can we collectively come alive and take our freedom back from our consolidating one-party state?

            Your imagination runs away with you. You insist you know what people are thinking as well as what they say, which betrays some kind of psychological issue I can’t quite name.

            I read the Erin Pizzey story and then read dozens of other articles. I’m not sure why you’d expect it to be at the forefront of my mind. You don’t aspire to agreement – you aspire to grovelling.

            I don’t support the Scottish development you mention, assuming it’s real – I haven’t heard of it, but I don’t follow mainstream news so I miss things.

            I’m not a feminist. I expect certain things as a matter of course, like being able to buy a house without some bloke standing guarantor, because I’m a sentient adult.

            Garou more or less means a man-wolf. The loup part refers more to wolf or wolves specifically. Rougarou more or less came about because “loup” almost sounds like “rou” in pronounciation. And of course as you know the French consider Cajun French to be a degenerate iteration of French.

    There certainly won’t be US civil war like North vs. South. No clear lines of demarcation, no clear geographic entities. No need for big supply lines. Rather, domestic violence and terror could increase with initially sporadic attacks on things like Democratic or Republican headquarters, political rallies and political figures, and plain ordinary citizens.

    Beware of the ambush, the sneaky sniper, the deadly drive-by. Do you really know your neighbor? He or she could just have one with your name on it, ready for special delivery. With four to five hundred million guns in the country, the chaos could be high caliber. What will law enforcement do? Who takes what side?

    Could really get ugly, with martial law being imposed, then what, a ratcheting up or down of violence?

    Currently, woke is winning and the weak are losing. Republicans still yammer and stammer, hold hearings, call people liars, etc., with no real effect.

    Fortunately, or unfortunately, much of the above-mentioned chaos will probably not take place, not on any significant scale. Neither the heart nor the stomach is there. Neither are the numbers.

    Could most of the effective Democratic propaganda and gaslighting be reversed before the 2024 election? Could the Democratic social engineering replacement agenda and all of their lies finally catch up with them? Always a chance, but I wonder.

    I wonder who really runs Joe Biden and the DNC?

    Lenin got a lot of surreptitious financing from the German Intelligence service under the Kaiser during WWI, which was trying to undermine the Russian war effort on the Eastern Front. The Germans gave over 50 million marks to finance anti-Tsarist Bolshevik propaganda, which was a huge sum of money at the time. The Germans probably gave Lenin logistical support to show Lenin how to set up the Bolshevik Party basically along the lines of an “Intelligence Agency”?

    The Russian Communists probably later gave similar advice to the Chinese Communists? What happens when heretofore “Political Parties” are no longer really “Political Parties”, but rather “Intelligence Agencies”? The Intelligence Agencies will organically link up with Organized Crime networks.

    Since Lenin set up his Party as a tightly organized, disciplined “Conspiratorial Organization”, it was inevitable that the Party would become interwoven with the Russian Intelligence organs, including the Secret Police, the “Cheka”.

            The Germans wanted to take the Russians out of the War (WW1) so they allowed the sealed train full of high level Communists to go through German into Russia. It worked – sowing the seeds of disaster for the next generation of Germans, Russians, and everyone else.

    • FGB3 April 29, 2023 at 11:10 pm #

      “I wonder who really runs Joe Biden and the DNC?”

      Excellent question. It cuts to the chase. Whoever it is, that is a very powerful group, a CABAL, at the very center of the power apparatus. Once one begins to get close to that CABAL it becomes very difficult to see who is who and what is what – and that’s the intent.

      It wouldn’t do for the American people to know who is actually behind the Grand Plan – too many loose ends would come together so that even someone of the meanest intelligence could figure it out.

      As it is, one has to stand back a bit to begin to see the Plan. Let’s just take one element, the open borders operation (that’s Soros by the way). Allowing anyone who wants to, to come into our country will destroy our country as a nation. And it’s not just anyone who wants to! Soros operation is actively seeking intruders.

      A nation, in order to exist, has to have a body politic in which certain major things are held in common as culture. Bringing hundreds of thousands of people from other cultures into ours causes disorder and it fragments the American culture. It causes division.

      And that is precisely as intended. ‘Open Borders’ Soros is on the record as saying he hates the United States. He hates us because we stand in the way of his One World “initiative”. Destroy the USA and who else is going to stand in your way?

      Now keep in mind this is all about the West. The West needs to be destroyed. The Cabal is not strong enough (yet) to take on the entire world. So you have bastions of nationalism inviolate with Russia, Hungary, and others not allowing unlimited “immigration”. They know better!

      After America the country standing in the way of the Cabal is Russia and its coalition of states. They see the Cabal for what it is. And they want no part of it. But having gobbled up the West, incl. America, the Cabal might know of some way to get Russia and China into their One World system.

      The poor American people have no idea what is going on. They are not capable of looking at the Big Picture by putting all these different things together into a meaningful whole.

      But we have only spoken about The Plan in terms of its attack on nationalism/culture. Why do they want to destroy nations in the first place? Is there something even more fundamental behind this?

      Yes. The ultimate goal behind everything is Depopulation. It has been for over a hundred years now. I imagine that the small group that comprises the Cabal has an ideal they are pursuing, which is to rid the Earth of most of the human beings. They have stated several times that they want a world population of 500,000,000.

      It’s an attractive idea, I have to admit that! Can you imagine all of the land, and air, and seas, all basically devoid of people? The Cabal thinks it would be paradise once all of the shit created by all those billions of people is gradually cleaned up.

      For those five hundred millions life would indeed be very different from now. So in a sense I believe the Cabal are idealists. You can’t have a persisting conspiracy generation after generation just based on “evil” and destruction. So there has to be some altruistic idea behind the One World thing they want.

      That’s my take.

        P.S. I just read this about the current situation in Poland with the flood of Ukrainian “refuges”. It’s the same old playbook.

        “Our essentially open-border policy of flooding Poland with anyone from Ukraine since February 2022 has hit Poland with a human wave unseen in our history. As was pointed out in a policy paper last year: “With the scale of the Ukrainian presence as large as it is now, Poland is in danger of becoming a country of fractured identity and constant factional fighting along ethnic and cultural dividing lines, as is happening both in countries where historical minorities are numerous, and in countries of mass immigration adopting the model of multiculturalism.”

        How about the idea that the existing format for life is nothing more than a flawed game, with the current iteration, whose primary beneficiary has been the US, about played-out, and an objective assessment does not happen, because no one wants to discuss anything that might lead to their economic detriment?

        Why shouldn’t anyone be allowed to venture anywhere in the world? Why should people be confined to where they were born, or perhaps where they are put?

        I would suggest that human nature and the saying “birds of a feather flock together” offer the answer. If you have 10 kids, and you are unable to take care of them properly with the help of government assistance, why should you be allowed to take on 10 more?

        The likes of Soros has decided that an objective assessment is never going to take place, so he has taken it upon himself to try and impose his version of a new format for life. The problem is that he and his cohorts aren’t going to do anything that might lead to their economic detriment.

          “… no one wants to discuss anything that might lead to their economic detriment”

          ********

          The RFK Jr. Tapes by David Samuels

          “And when you go to Monsanto or Exxon or any of these companies that you sue and say, “Hey, you guys, you’re dumping this shit into the water and it contains mercury or whatever that could be harmful to kids, so why don’t you stop it?”, what kinds of responses would you get?

          The official response from those entities is sophisticated. And you’re usually dealing with lawyers, who are very guarded.

          The interesting question that I think most Americans have is: Why would a corporation like Monsanto or General Electric poison all the fish in the Hudson if it’s their fish too? And that question was answered by Sinclair Lewis, who said that it’s impossible to persuade a man of a fact when the existence of that fact diminishes his salary. There’s an economic law called “tragedy of the commons,” which basically says an individual following their own economic interests will capture and kill the last fish in the ocean no matter what it does to the rest of society.

          So those people are able to put blinders on to persuade themselves that they’re creating jobs, that they’re doing good things, and they judge themselves by their intentions rather than their actions. And ultimately their ultimate redoubt is, I can live in Aspen, or I can live in Hawaii, or I can live in a gated community, and the mayhem that I’m creating for other communities will not reach my door.”

    Why did the Brits leave Charles Gordon to die in Khartoum? Did he offend a member of the Royal Family? What gives, man?

    Didn’t the British government leave the brave, stalwart hero Charles Gordon hanging on by a thread for weeks fighting against Muslim Jihadi’s and to eventually perish in Khartoum? Did we ever figure out whom Gordon had offended? I wonder how Dr. Fauci was able to negotiate a BioLab project with the Muslim Sudanese government? Is that a reliable business partner?

    “ While the fighting has plunged Sudan into massive chaos, one of the major concerns of the fighting was that the rebels have forcefully taken over the National Public Health Laboratory, one of the important centers for disease control and research on epidemics in Africa. National Public Health Laboratory was established in 1992 and since then was instrumental in carrying out several research projects with the help of western funding. In 2012, the World Health Organization (WHO) started supporting it and enhanced its research capabilities to a very large extent. Today, it is one of the major research centers for pathogens in entire Africa. During the COVID-19 pandemic, this laboratory successfully carried out genome mapping, testing and research on COVID-19 virus.”

    When the American public finally learns of the failure of the much ballyhooed Ukrainian Spring Offensive in Ukraine, it will cause the Biden government and the economy to collapse?

    “ News of the defeat of the Galician offensive aroused first despair and then anger towards a government which seemed utterly incompetent. Lenin and his entourage at once sensed a change in the public mood, and he decided to speed things up. Pravda fiercely castigated the government for ‘throwing thousands of men into the meat grinder’.

    Bolshevik influence grew rapidly. The Party Central Committee agreed that what was needed was a powerful, mass action that would force the Provisional Government to resign in favour of the Soviets, where the Bolsheviks stepped up their efforts to gain control. The idea quickly caught on in factories and among troops who did not want to go to the front, and therefore supported the Bolsheviks. ‘Taking power’ in the capital was far more appealing than the filthy trenches and the lice.”

Essentially what Tucker was saying was in regard to Janet Yellen when she was saying that if you wanted to help the economy you should get an abortion. He said it was an Aztec ritual or principal or some such. But he was saying that like every society has human sacrifices of one form or another. I think Baal worshippers used to burn people alive. And of course the Aztecs were super gory.

            @ SoftStarLight:

            I think that LSD does open the doors of perception, sometimes allowing you to travel to different planes of existence–though I think that’s rather rare. (It happened to me once.)

            Mostly, it just greatly sharpens the perceptions, and I think too the mind’s capability for pattern-recognition. Part of it is that the mind normally has a lot of filters in place. There are many things that are perfectly present to your senses that you just don’t see, because the mind filters them out. This is probably because there is only a limited spectrum of sense data that is really relevant to your ability to get through the day and get the day’s work done. So you work on auto-pilot, don’t really taste the food, don’t experience the bliss of the shower or bath, and don’t really give much attention to other people.

            LSD turns off the filters so that you see all the stuff you’ve been blocking out. Much of what you’ve been blocking out is the great joy and beauty of much of your sense experience, and this can include the great joy you sometimes experience in connection with other people. One thing I noticed about LSD is that, if you trip all night with some other people, by morning you will have formed blood-and-bone bonds of friendship with them, or you will detest them. You’ve really “seen” them.

            Maybe the best analogy for the effect of LSD is to imagine you’ve been living in a very dimly lit room all your life, and somebody came in and turned on the light.

    In part 2 of the video discussion linked up=thread, with Naomi Wolf and some informed Australians,
    Naomi asks (I am paraphrasing):

    “Why did ‘they’ let us have 60 years of the best quality of life, at least in the West? I don’t understand why they did this, and are cutting us down now?”

    The answer that popped into my head this a.m. is that the answer has to do with the killing of JFK. They had to get rid of him and RFK because they would steer the country away from the destructive agenda.

    Possibly the assassination(s) were merely the opening shots, literally, in the “Killing Hope” agenda of the horrible people, the global elites, who have created an “upper crust” of world government to reduce each nation, and spark of patriotism and national or cultural identity, to dust.

    Without those anchors—whatever they be (a tribe, a country, a state, a religion, a memory of ancestors)— H. sapiens is lost and vulnerable

    Now people are forgetting about JFK and his legacy. 1963–2023 is sixty years. Perhaps this is what Naomi actually was alluding to when she said “Sixty years . . .”

    I hate to break it to Naomi, a “good Jewish human,” that it is quite likely that the state of Israel and the Mossad were behing the Dallas event, and Israel and globalizing Jews are significant elements in the elite that is destroying humanity.

    At least she does recognize that Israel is one of the “petrie dishes” (along with Australia) for this takedown of H. sapiens.

      After WW2 and the baby-boom and the attendant wealth generation of the working and middle classes it only took 70-80 years for the .1% parasites to vacuum America’s middle-class wealth away.

      401K’s, exorbitant student loans, variable rate mortgages, extortionate credit rates and availability, inflation rated negative earning savings products (money narkets, CD’s), wage depression, cheap labor importation.

      This has happened before in the west and there is always a reckoning. A reckoning that ironically does not give pause to the perpetrators to reflect on its repetitiveness, but instead the victims are gaslighted into believing they are to blame, but deep down they know better no matter how impossible they try to keep all from reaching the obvious conclusion.

      Simple. They needed to milk the productivity out of first. All that human capital (along with cheap fossil fuels) transformed the world. Now that the world is mostly transformed to their liking and the cheap energy gone, it’s time to foreclose on the human capital part of the equation.

      The race wars are just a convenient extra benefit of all this, diverting the real conversation away from class issues. Archdruid’s latest sums it up pretty well.

        Rudolf Hess’s son, Wolf, said that Hess was killed by British operatives wearing American uniforms. He was told this in the strictest confidence by kitchen staff who heard them talking as they went to “visit” him.

        He struggled, knocking things over, trying to indicate that he didn’t kill himself.

            He was about to be let go. “We” thought the Russians had insisted on his dying in prison, but they were surprised by that, saying they didn’t care. No doubt it was the Globalists playing all sides as usual.

            They didn’t want him released. He was sane, though of course depressed, and utterly unrepentant. So they killed him.

      Good ideas, all.

      GA, t hanks for the link, again.

      I will look at it. So much to take in!

      And weigh.

      I must say that I find Laurent Guyenot’s work pointing to LBJ and the Mossad as the Dallas culprits pretty convincing (at the Unz Review).

      But, as James Douglass emphasized in JFK and the Unspeakable, there were so many groups who hated JFK (and RFK) The MIC hated him for standing up for labor and actually shutting down steel companies that openly flouted the Steelworkers agreement of . . .1962?
      I am hazy on details here. the main point: JFK ordered RFK to show the steelmakers that the law was in charge. Not them.

      Good, Islander. At last a bit of White Nationalist conspiracy “theory”. Like the theory of gravity. The Jews control our financial system. The old Americans (WASPS) are just along for the ride, at least in this regard.

      JFK was apparently on to the Federal Reserve scam, actually issuing debt free dollars. He may have signed his death warrant by so doing.

      In a used book I bought on the assassination, I found one of the debt free dollars.

      And that is what for the life of me I simply cannot piece together. The Jews have obviously been extraordinarily interested in themselves and their destiny. So why would they poison their own all of a sudden? To me it makes absolutely no sense. I mean they are some of the most ethnocentric people in the world after all. And even let’s just say that their rulers thought this to be a good plan because of depopulation still, the Jews are a really tiny population compared to the world. So basically i am lost.

      • Jarek April 30, 2023 at 5:29 pm #

        Me too. Evidently my brother was right: The (the Jewish Elite) never took the Jewish thing nearly as seriously as they pretended to, or as seriously as the Jewish people themselves did. They hid behind the Jewish people – and the Jewish people benefited from that.

        Also my friend: The Jews have been called different things in different places throughout the ages.

        Interesting fact: Are the Rothschilds, Jews? They accept that outwardly. But privately they trace their lineage back to Sumer.

        They did help start up Israel, perhaps as a base of operations or a fall back if needed. But they don’t seem to think they need the Jewish people anymore – thus using them as vax guinea pigs. I mean it makes sense if they want a model as close to their own genotype as possible to experiment on. But at the same time, it means they don’t care about them. You don’t experiment on those whom you love.

        In the end, the secret Luciferian doctrines and sects were stronger than Judaism per se. Christianity too, alas. Islam? Remains to be seen. Obviously it’s been infiltrated.

    NY Post

    All hell broke loose in Boston Saturday for the city’s annual SatanCon when hundreds showed up to protest the devilish event with signs declaring “Satan has NO rights!” and “Hellfire awaits!”

    Celebrating its tenth anniversary, the controversial convention is hosted by the Salem-based Satanic Temple — which does not worship the Bible’s Satan as a deity, instead uses satanic imagery to “reject tyrannical authority” and promote the separation of church and state, according to its website.

    The protests came amid reports of a video showing moderators ripping out pages of a Bible and destroying a “Thin Blue Line” flag, which is flown in support of law enforcement, according to the Catholic News Agency.

    On Saturday, Catholic protesters were joined by members of the white nationalist group Patriot Front, according to the Boston Herald.

    One protester carried a banner that read “Satan has NO rights!” while another’s stated, “Don’t be deceived! Homosexuals, baby killers, idolaters, unbelieving, liars, drunkards, gossips, cowards, thieves, mockers, fornicators: Hellfire awaits.”…

    The Archdiocese of Boston previously released a letter asking Massachusetts Catholics “not to organize or encourage others to go to the event to protest,” although people “are appropriately concerned by such an event taking place in Boston,” MassLive reported.

    Anglin: It’s not about worshiping Satan, btw.

    It’s like, a sort of Nietzschean philosophy, bro.

    Check out this photo gallery of, you know, Nietzschean philosophers.

      I have a feeling these “satanists”, as are the trans activists, are really just feeble people in desperate need of attention and in desperate need to feel engaged in society.

      They do not have access to the levers of power that the parasite class has, but they do want to feel they are contributing to societal change. As they are mostly average, poor, and stupid people they are totally ignorant to the fact that the parasite class is merely using them to divide, confuse, and break down the society that, with total irony, offers them this exact opportunity to act out.

        Aryan Supermen they’re not. Nor any other kind. But at least of the Elite are into this stuff so they have very powerful backers.

        Fun Fact: Anton LaVey had a very good relationship with the police, believed in elitism and law and order. But apart from that, he had much of the same spiel as these people do. Transgression as pleasure and growth. Satan as just a theraputic motiff.

    I’m glad naomi is addressing reality in a matter of fact manner. Two points

    1. This is where I see Jim heading, as he realizes his framework of the US once exercising justice, social progress, agency/free will (the whole freedom and liberty ad campaign) was simply a function of this 60 year period

    2. As to the question of “why?”, this is the direction some conversations I’ve had recently have gone. That is , awareness has reached a point where one doesn’t have to raise questions, debate issues, etc. Every seems to have concluded that what is happening is deliberate and intentional

    So, that then opens up the next logical step as to why. Why us, why now, what’s the point, what’s the reason?
    And this touchs on the 60 years; Why was it allowed, why has it been revoked?

    My response would be similar to Dis – the overwhelming post ww2 surplus couldn’t be directly attacked. Rather a shift in tactics caused them to set up a casino to draw in the suckers; a classic ju jitsu move. Once fleeced, the other shoe is now dropping

    This pov also suggests that pre war society was a continuation of traditional class organization, and it was only the 60 years that was both an anomoly and a situation that has now ended

    That’s why – like our host – if that was your sole lifetime experience, it makes sense you would hold dear certain beliefs that would be projected as defining, absolute truths

    When one finally rejects the propaganda and walks away from the fantasy, you’re able to clearly see the entire broad spectrum truth

            The Netherlands is a good example of an empire/country that bowed out tactically and fairly gracefully from their empire and their imperial illusions and delusions, while maintaining a strong metropolitan economy that effectively continued to draw on the former colonies’ resources.

            I’m sure there is some kind of historical-economic term to describe the trajectory of the Netherlands’ mercantile empire, but I don’t know it.

            You probably know that MA contends that the strength of an empire is a product of trade (not war).

            Dalio writes:

            “For the Dutch, the collapse of the guilder was massive and relatively quick in taking place over less than a decade, with the actual circulation of guilders falling swiftly by the end of the Fourth Anglo-Dutch War. This collapse came as the Netherlands entered a steep decline as a world power, first losing a major war against the British and subsequently facing invasion on the continent from France.”

            … and in the 4th chapter he writes about it more extensively:

            “The Dutch Empire and the Dutch Guilder

            Before we get to the collapse of the Dutch empire and the Dutch guilder let’s take a quick look at the whole arc of its rise and decline. While I previously showed you the aggregated power index for the Dutch empire, the chart below shows the eight powers that make it up from the ascent around 1575 to the decline around 1780.”

      Thanks for posting. It’s very reasonable and he addresses both the green energy and traditional carbon energies. He is saying that it all needs to downscale, so that is good. I don’t think it can happen with free market capitalism though. Way too much of a profit incentive. Unless he is ok with letting the government play smash mouth to make the downscaling happen. People have said that I am anti-government. My retort to them is that y’all just don’t understand what kind of government I want.

      • Jarek April 30, 2023 at 4:15 pm #

        Yeah, it’s a dodge. There’s no answer here. Free Market Capitalism leads to winners and losers. The winner gobble up the losers and become bigger and bigger until there is only a few left. They then cooperate to control the industry and regulators (if any). When they become Trans-national and Mega, in union with the Banks, they create “funds” which control the whole Western World.

        The Government must remain stronger then they are – at all stages – so as to prevent this from happening.

        What to stop the Government from becoming corrupt? Nothing. If one wants certainty, then they have come to the wrong world, in the wrong universe, in the wrong existence. But there’s a chance – if the people are good. There’s no chance with Capitalism which is selfish by its very nature and will corrupt the people if left untrammeled.

        • JohnAZ April 30, 2023 at 4:47 pm #

          Yes, but-

          Government by its nature is evil, power is evil, any excuse to centralize power is evil.

          The Founders knew this, Lohan Locke knew this, the Masons knew this. The acknowledgement of the evil of government is written into our founding documents, that were written to severely limit the power of the US government.

          How? By balance of powers, by not letting one part of government be in total charge of things. This is what the Dem totalitarian folks are using to set up their Uniparty dictatorship, slowly eroding away the power of the Congress and Supreme Court in favor of the executive authority of the President. This is a fail of the Constitution, not being able to control the presidential power, not being able to remove presidents that are corrupt. So they have run roughshod over the other branches. The government loving Dems will continue to push executive power until the dictatorship is established, that is the future.

          Capitalism is the same. I agree with you that monopolistic capitalism is bad news. The same as socialism, both being controlled by individuals rather than the market. Two things stop monopolies, truly free markets and the suspension of the too big to fail concept. A healthy economy has companies going under all the time with hungrier companies taking their place. Think for a moment, people like Bill Gates, they want risk of failure to be zero. Bill Gates, the creator of millions of computer glitches by releasing software with known bugs in it. Microsoft should have been shut down long ago by competitive pressure. Instead, thanks to the government, we have one operating system for the world, Bill Gates’. Think our MIC might have had something to do with that.

          Capitalism practiced correctly with free market and regulatory controls when necessary, is the only system, like the Constitution, that will control the power of the Elitists. Socialism sounds good, find a benevolent dictator and he will care for us through the government. It has been tried over and over and has failed as many times as it has been tried. Why? Easy, because when people are dictated to they no longer give a damn.

            Regulatory controls? Regulated by whom? Themselves – people only dedicated to making money?

            Or by elected officials who have taken an oath to serve the people – not shareholders?

            Man is a fallen being and requires the checks and balances of a government as Madison said. In contrast, Capitalism in its modern form is simply an expression of that fallen nature.

            Anthea came out strongly for Capitalism as a check on totalitarian government. Fair enough! But it in turn must be kept small or medium sized. And where that is not feasible, more directly controlled. Scale is an important issue in latter stages of Capitalism. Many industries favor large scale.

            When I made the distinction between subsistence farming and farming dedicated to getting bigger, she went into a rage, calling me a bum for not wanting to always GROW! Same old, same old. Women shaming men. The force which thru the green fuse drives the nuclear weapon.

            Since the earliest times, men have retreated into lodges and brotherhoods to escape from harridians and termagents. Into the solitude of workshops and caves, to have the peace of mind needed to CREATE. Get back to work they scream from outside. If you’re not suffering, you’re not working…..

            Competition is for suckers. For the little guys. One is reminded of the young English chump who challenged his Muslim tormentor to a fair fight after school.

            He went with no one. The Muslim boy had a crowd of Muslims with him. No need: the older brother broke his skull with a claw hammer. Permanent brain damage.

            Without cooperation, we would have never survived this long. As Marx said, the upper class “remembers” this before the others, attaining “class consciousness”.

            Fair fights are fine, like bucks fighting over does. It doesn’t negate the broader cooperation against enemies though. Whites have mixed the two up. Combat is first and foremost. You want to fight as individuals against a ruthless tribe of Oligarchs. You would have be like the young English boy.

            The US Constitution hasn’t failed. What has failed is the very concept of a successful and long lasting republic. Republics last only an average of 250 years, and the US is on its expiration date. Beyond that and you have completely incompetent eadership incapable of running a country and even less capable of running an empire.

    • Islander April 30, 2023 at 4:35 pm #

      Hmmm, I like the quote cited.

      But not sure RFK understands carbon. Later on he seems to make “carbon” responsible for acid rain. Is that true? First of all, let’s be clear that “carbon” means carbon dioxide, CO2.

      Per a Wiki search on the cause of acid rain:

      “Acid rain is caused by the release of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides into the atmosphere, where they react with water, oxygen, and other chemicals to become sulfuric and nitric acid respectively. The pH of acid-impacted rain is generally below 4.5 on the pH scale.”

      Any compound that ends with “oxide” is not the same thing!!

      But I agree with Kennedy that our so-called “free market” does not couint the costs to the environmenbt and the costs of many natural resources such as water, mountaintops, etc.

      He recommends ending all subsidies but seems to have in mind only the “carbon industries.” What is this, anyway?

      Ending subsidies would also require ending subsidies to the “alt-energy” world. That would put a quick end to wind turbines on the Continental Shelf, etc.

      In sum, I don’t think Kennedy has really thought things through. Maybe he can be excused for this . . . It is bloody complicated. He needs to create a group of climate advisors to hammer out a coherent policy or set of policies. The members of this group must be “catholic”—in the sense of “including a wide variety of things; all-embracing.”

      I think Naomi Klein has provided a great model in her shout-out to all types of medical professionals to analyze the Pfizer document release. Kennedy needs to do the same to all stripes of “climate professionals.”

      Someone needs to tell him that many topnotch scientists think the CO2 fearmongering is total bunkum and have the math to prove it. Think logarithms. Check in with William Happer, dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Princeton, an award-winning astrophysicist.
      Check this out:
      httpX://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGn-6kGoD0c

      RFK Jr. needs to understand that there is a “climate orthodoxy” just as there was/is a “vaccine orthodoxy.” He must question everything and proactively search for understanding of deeper forces driving international and national “climate policy.”

        Remember that the PTB will just find something else to bitch about..

          Per William F. Ruddiman, a paleoclimatologist and Professor Emeritus at the University of Virginia, AGW is not “bunkum,” but the way it is used by climate change fearmongers is. He thinks, after analyzing a plethora or different cycles and databases, ice cores, etc, that AGW is delaying the onset of the next ice age, which is more or less due to start up, gradually . . . .

          See Ruddiman, Plows, Plagues, and Petroleum: How Humans Took Control of Climate.

          Ruddiman concludes, from an examination and analysis of hundreds of different types evidence, that H. sapiens sapiens started to influence the earth’s climate as soon as they started clearing forests to facilitate hunting, then did it more to facilitate agriculture. This effect was an overlay over a number of natural cycles having nothing to do with H. sapiens.

          He also explains very clearly the difference between a hypothesis and a theory, and demonstrates in this book the way genuine scientists welcome challenges to their theories, because meeting each challenge with new data and analysis strengthens the theory.

          Or, the opposite—the theory is weakened, and scientists must come up with new hypotheses to account for all the available data.

          Professor Ruddiman shows why he feels that he has met all the challenges (as of when the book was published) to his theory, so for now he is sticking with it: AGW is occurring, but it is not accelerating global warming; it is holding back global cooling. (I haven’t read any of his more recent publications.)

        I’m sure he knows all about the orthodoxies. I am guessing he is trying to straddle the fence as much as humanly possible. Might not be possible during the campaign.

          I couldn’t follow what he was saying about carbon. Sounded like “Carbon bad.”

          • benr May 1, 2023 at 8:52 am #

            You are carbon if carbon is bad then so are you.

            Do you not understand what these people are telling you?

            Dirty carbon emitter unclean!

      He made a major error. He declared himself a Democrat. The DNC and its power base are going to Trump Him. Just watch the press.

      • edpell April 30, 2023 at 5:00 pm #

        Yup.The DNC is going with Micheal.

      • TPTB-USA April 30, 2023 at 5:09 pm #

        RFK jr. declaring himself a Democrat, may garner attention.

        If a percent of democrats want to hear what he has to say, and MSM silences him, they they may come to realize how corrupt MSM has become.

        • benr May 1, 2023 at 8:53 am #

          I doubt a good chunk of DEMOCRATS WILL EVER SEE THE MEDIA AS ANYTHING BUT A ONE STOP SHOP FOR THEIR TRUTH NOT THE TRUTH THAT DONT CARE.

        Of course they will.

    Last I knew, the “government” was made up of imperfect human beings like you and me. Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, Bobby Kennedy Jr, even tottering Joe Biden are humans, not automatons. Vote for whomever you wish or don’t vote at all, but remember, WE are the government, YOU and I. I believe it was Teddy Roosevelt (a Republican) who said that.

      WE were the government, until the Wokie globalists took over. They are now the authorities (self-appointed) and they consider you and me scum of the earth and lower than ants, and of course not worthy to make decisions.

    • SoftStarLight April 30, 2023 at 10:45 pm #

      It’s sorta a strange thought to me. I’ll have to ponder that more to truly understand it.

  64. MaryQueen April 30, 2023 at 5:58 pm #

    I really like James Lindsay and am listening to a lot of his lectures. I highly recommend them if you want to understand the postmodernist nightmare/Wokeism/etc. we are living through.

    The Gnostic Parasite | James Lindsay

    “In his first talk at the Mere Simulacrity conference in Phoenix, Arizona, in December 2022, James Lindsay introduced the idea that there is a long, running current of “Secret Religions” in the West. These are the Modern and Postmodern manifestations of the Esoteric Religions like Gnosticism and Hermeticism as they developed through what we might consider the Middle Age’s “New Age” period, famously codified by G.W.F. Hegel. In the second lecture in his “Secret Religions of the West” series, Lindsay explains that these “philosophies,” including Marxism, are actually mystical Esoteric cult religions posing as science, economics, and politics, and that their success in infiltrating our religions, societies, and institutions is down to their intrinsically parasitical nature. They mimic and illegitimately claim the language and structure of the things they pretend to be and bring destruction and madness into the void they create. Join him to understand not only this but how the “handshaking” balance between Reason and Faith is the only way to stop Gnosis.”

      It sounds interesting but is such a long video I’ll have to check it out fully tomorrow. I’ve heard that the Sphinx is actually much older than 10,000 years old. That much information about ancient Egypt and before that has been hidden from us. Just imagine all the information the Vatican has hidden away.

        The Great Pyramid [ the largest book in the world ] was copied by the Egyptians:

    The evidence of foreign pay offs to the Clinton and Biden Families is overwhelming? They are trying to bring down the US from within?

    “ The government’s authority was waning fast. But it was not the charges associated with the ‘July Days’ that Lenin feared most, it was the consequences of the allegations being printed by Alexinsky and Pankratov in Zhivoe Slovo (The Living Word) about Bolshevik ‘espionage’.

    As we have seen, there is evidence suggesting that Lenin did not know the extent of the government’s information about the Bolsheviks’ financial links with the Germans. One point he would not have been able to refute was the existence of a strategy to help bring about the defeat of Russia in the war and its transformation into a civil war. The evidence was there in countless articles and speeches and proclamations.”

    • SoftStarLight April 30, 2023 at 11:07 pm #

      So was Lenin actually working with the Germans?

      • Pucker April 30, 2023 at 11:20 pm #

        Lenin lived for a while in Zurich, Switzerland, the German-speaking part of Switzerland, convenient to meet with his German contacts.

        • Pucker April 30, 2023 at 11:38 pm #

          It was probably a huge shock to the jingoistic Russian people to learn after 1991 that Lenin was basically a traitor and a tool of the Germans….

            Of the Germans? Or the German Jews? Or do you think those are the same?

      I watched some of that, it was a love fest. The amount of blatant media asskissing by the supposedly ‘Adversial Press’ of Biden was beyond the pale.

      In other news, it looks like Ukaine’s “Great Spring Counteroffensive” has morphed into the “Great Summer Counteroffensive.”. IOW, there isn’t going to be any counteroffensive ~ Ukraine is weakened to the point where it is incapable of launching one but keeps the delusion alive to guarantee billions flowing into Kiev from the gullible and hopeful West. Does it occur to Zelensky that the first rule of a Counteroffensive, is that you don’t tell anybody you are launching a Counteroffensive; you keep it on the down low, a state secret, so as to preserve the element of surprise? That’s of course if all along the ‘Counteroffensive’ isn’t part of a massive international money laundering scheme designed to keep the grift going all of 2023 and into 2024.

    When you were a kid, did your misguided parents ever let you watch the TV show “Hogan’s Heroes”, a “Situation Comedy” about life in a WWII German concentration camp?

    • BackRowHeckler May 1, 2023 at 6:19 am #

      Actually, the German war against Western Allies 1944-45 was pretty conventional, and much less brutal and intense than what occurred over the same ground in the 1914-18 war.

    Last nite … First Republic Bank went down, the 2nd largest bank failure in US history and the third major bank failure in two months. Not too worry, markets are up! EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL!
