No need to argue anymore about defunding the police. The police across America have been successfully disarmed and castrated. Why would any cop with a sense of self-preservation interfere in the commission of a crime now? Just assume that the social contract is cancelled. You’re on your own.

Interesting factoids, by the way: rape reports are up 322 percent in New York City over the past year, shootings were up 97 percent and murders up 44 percent — a good start to the new era of all-against-all, where life is solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short. But don’t worry, Benjamin Crump and his legion of super-hero personal injury lawyers stand ready to enforce the suspension of law, seeking multi-million-dollar payouts in civil suits, such as the $27-million recently settled on the family of George Floyd, which is $27-million more than Jesus of Nazareth got for somewhat harsher treatment years back, though, according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, George Floyd has by far outpaced the old lord-and-savior in sheer saintliness mojo. Looks like George and Jesus will soon be vying for Speaker of Kingdom Come in the new, revised cosmos of American Wokery.

Anyway, New York’s City Council voted last month to end qualified immunity for police officers, which formerly shielded them from personal lawsuits in the performance of their duties. Predictable result: they will no longer perform their duties. This is on top of Mayor Bill de Blasio ending the age-old practice of posting bail for charged felons pending disposition of a criminal case. Meanwhile, the city’s main jail, Rikers Island, is scheduled to be closed down in 2026. Abolish incarceration! Well done, Big Apple!

For the moment, Derek Chauvin is on ice, having served his purpose as sacrificial goat in a trial that had all the fateful velocity of the Chattanooga Choo-choo. No need to rehearse the prejudicial actions of Rep Maxine Waters (D-Calif), oval office occupant Joe Biden, sidekick Kamala Harris, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune newspaper, Minnesota AG Keith Ellison, and other workers on the railroad of justice. The case will surely go on to appeal and by the time it is finally adjudicated the old USA will be on ice, too — in the mortuary of lost civilizations.

Minneapolis police officer Kim Potter is teed-up next in the death of multiple felony suspect Daunte Wright, who was turning his life around when he made the impulsive decision to evade arrest on an outstanding warrant for gun possession. And on deck: Columbus, Ohio, police officer Nicholas Reardon, who (it’s said all over Twitter and cable TV) unfairly interfered in a knife attack between a couple of girls just going about normal teenage girl stuff in, like, their normal, playful way.

Critical Race Theory, and its enforcement arm, Systemic Racism, have got America in a full nelson, having put over the idea that any regulation of behavior among 13 percent of the US population is a crime against humanity — effectively rendering lawlessness a new social entitlement. Waiting to see how that works out as 2021 rolls forward. The weather didn’t cooperate much this week of the aforesaid events, so there was little action in the streets after the Chauvin verdict and all — except in Portland, Oregon, city of masochists, where the nightly riots continued as usual.

Is there a problem with all this? Only that the remaining 87 percent of the folks who live in the USA have so far failed to identify these operations for what they are, an epic hustle — by which I mean the seeking and acquiring of advantage, including large sums of money, by underhanded means. Sorry to tell you: the responsibility for this is on the 87 percent who are craven and feckless enough to allow themselves to be hustled. What’s the payoff for them in this game? A sense of radiant, self-informed moral purity for consenting to be coerced by the hustlers. The endorphin rush must really be something, a little like a snootful of fentanyl-and-meth.

Notice, too, how all this racial psychodrama is an effective smokescreen for other nefarious actions afoot by the Democratic Party. I refer to the various bills moving through Congress now to pack the Supreme Court, turn the District of Columbia into the 51st state (to gain two more senate seats), and to institutionalize voting fraud across all the states (HR-1). Not paying any attention to that? It’s just a gang of power-hungry maniacs trying to destroy your country. That is, unless Joe Biden & Co. manage to start World War Three in Ukraine or Taiwan before that bidness comes to a vote. Oh, and here’s the moral of the story: life is tragic. Sometimes things don’t turn out… they just turn.

    Hello CFNers,

    I propose that we all make efforts to be civil. Too many CFN conversations devolve into name-calling, schoolyard spats.

    Let’s share our thoughts, opinions, facts, wry & witty observations, pertinent links, etc. while conducting ourselves like adults.

    Thank you.

    • Slugoon April 23, 2021 at 9:46 am #

      Nicely said, OG. This is a pretty cool and unique place to interact and it has got a little fraught lately. I’ll do my best!

      • O.G. Hawkins April 23, 2021 at 10:00 am #

        Correct. They are everywhere, on every platform, or any social forum that has a decent number of people interacting on it.

      “I propose that we all make efforts to be civil. Too many CFN conversations devolve into name-calling, schoolyard spats.”

      I, too, appreciate this sentiment, OG. But when playing in the schoolyard, one inevitably learns that they must play or be played. And sometimes you have to call some guy a dick.

      Must admit, after seeing your post, it was really hard for me to resist calling you a dick just for the poetic irony.

      Well, I guess I just did. But you know I’m just having fun in the schoolyard.

      Onward and upward!

      • Blackbird April 23, 2021 at 12:12 pm #

        “Must admit, after seeing your post, it was really hard for me to resist calling you a dick just for the poetic irony.” I know! I was gonna staple his knickers to a tree…

        • Blackbird April 23, 2021 at 8:18 pm #

          Did O.G.’s comic response to the comic wedgie and knicker-staplin’ by MrMango and myself somehow end up rolling off the table? That would be unfortunate. A pioneer on the frontiers of free speech lost at sea. Don’t remember what ya said but it was funny. Got my hand in the water if you’re down there.

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder April 23, 2021 at 8:34 pm #

            Blackbird, it appears so! Only the Fates know why. I sure don’t.

      • benr April 23, 2021 at 12:36 pm #

        People like Tekapo and Redneck liberal are not here to have discussions they are here to push an agenda, talking points and just stink the place up.

        • Slugoon April 23, 2021 at 1:03 pm #

          I’m going to defend Tekapo here. He’s been a punch-bag for several weeks now but always remains civil and I believe he does engage in reasoned discussion.

          • O.G. Hawkins April 23, 2021 at 1:09 pm #

            Sometimes.

            That’s why it is so frustrating when he turns to mud-slinging, strawmen and ad hominem attacks. Always politely but trying to win arguments by ridiculing others & their conclusions and opinions.

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder April 23, 2021 at 1:34 pm #

            The Straw is strong with Tekapo.

            He’s done his homework…well, on that technique.

          • MaryV April 25, 2021 at 7:47 pm #

            Well, he’s a punch bag because he’s a condescending jerk.

        • MrMangoOnMyShoulder April 23, 2021 at 1:38 pm #

          And FWIW, I’ll give Redneck Liberal some slack after seeing his youtube posts (liberal redneck). The words he’s saying I still tend to disagree with in the overall, but most notably so when in written form. Once I saw his personality via video I have softened a bit. Genuinely funny dude.

          But I still ain’t running to the vaccination center. Even if someone calls me gay, while throwing a firecracker at a washing machine full of gasoline, (or however they’re choosing to spend their afternoon).

      • Anthea April 24, 2021 at 2:49 pm #

        Oh, I wouldn’t call O.G. a dick. “Officious bore” better summarizes my thoughts on this.

    • KappaJoe April 23, 2021 at 3:40 pm #

      Everyone deserves a fair shot. However, as we frequently see, it takes approximately a single post to identify a troll. And there are exactly two modes for dealing with trolls: IGNORE and then DENOUNCE, and denouncing at the outset simply cuts to the chase.

      Of course, the moderator has a third option, but far too few boards use it, while a great many abuse it for all the wrong reasons (cough… Facebook, Google, Twitter). See below.

      Just be aware that, aside from paid or ideological disruptors (which is what we usually get here), the true troll is actually a controlling narcissistic sociopath whose objective is to virtually own the board, dictate all facets of participation, and ideally become moderator.

      I’ve made a study of it and saw it happen more than once:

      Phase 1: find a board having rational, earnest discussion

      Phase 2: identify your competition, i.e., those who will likely prevent you from controlling the board

      Phase 3: build alliances against your competition through 3xcesdive flattery and feigned agreement with the non-competition

      Phase 4: participate in nearly every sub-thread, constantly creating division against your competition and creating controversy where none before existed (many original posters will first complain, then begin to exit in droves)

      Phase 5: offer to moderate to solve the dissension (board owners often agree to this to get the problem off their hands and the board back to “normal”)

      Phase 6: as newly elevated moderator, ban your competition on some pretext and dictate all facets of participation going forward

      Phase 7: all earnest, rational discussion ceases, the controlling narcissistic sociopath has his fiefdom, and the few remaining board members are clueless co-dependents, while newbies scratch their heads over whomever had recommended the board

      This dynamic plays out on all forums regardless of size. A board or platform is created, the destroyers arrive, and the place is finished up to and including behemoths like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, becoming sad shells devoid of rational, earnest discussion. The only solutions are to be on constant guard, or short of that, starting over with a new board or platform and guarding THAT.

      • Blackbird April 23, 2021 at 3:57 pm #

        Gotta give Clusterfuck Nation credit for maintaining a productive commentariat while embroiled in internal conflict. Biweekly gems of cultural critique, accented with a bare-knuckled brawl of beliefs. Well now, ain’t that America?

        • tully April 23, 2021 at 4:33 pm #

          Something I have been wondering: is there anyone in the commentariat that goes back to the old Kunstlercast forum? Duncan Crary used to do the podcast with Jim; in fact, there is a book that is a collection of those original episodes:

          https://www.amazon.com/KunstlerCast-Conversations-James-Howard-Kunstler-ebook/dp/B006LOSZU6/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=kunstlercast+duncan+crary&qid=1619209676&s=books&sr=1-1

          There was also a forum where folks posted on podcast topics, Jim’s books etc. Eventually, Duncan wanted to move on to other things, and Jim began doing the podcast on his own. The forum was taken down after that.

          I’ve sometimes wondered if anyone is still around; been so long, I don’t remember any of the forum posters’ names.

          • Blackbird April 23, 2021 at 4:56 pm #

            I don’t even know how far I go back – remote viewing, not participating – but far enough to a self I hardly know anymore.

      • Anthea April 24, 2021 at 2:58 pm #

        There are also quite a few forums where the resident snowflakes report you to the administrator if you dare to present a differing opinion. If enough of them are triggered often enough, you will be banned. Such people feel threatened by free discourse–and, often, so do the admins.

    • Raindogs April 23, 2021 at 11:24 pm #

      Everything that happens in the world that either scares me or that I don’t understand is either a PsyOp or just downright Satanic.

      • Justin April 24, 2021 at 10:08 am #

        That is very well said, and I agree with that as well.
        A 3rd possibility though, is that it could be a psychopathic act or event, since psychopaths are apparently in control.
        It seems that satanists are most likely also psychopaths, but not all psychopaths are satanists.
        Also, paranoia is only paranoia if you are wrong about it. So if you suspect a PsyOp, you are more likely right than wrong about it…

        • Anthea April 24, 2021 at 3:08 pm #

          There are whole Facebook groups that are psyops. I once joined a soapmaking group (of all things) on Facebook that was entirely devoted to promoting the LGBT agenda. I am pretty sure that most of the group members were sock puppets.

          During the Kavanaugh dust-up, they were almost unanimous in claiming that you should be able to convict someone without evidence–a mere accusation was enough. So I took the opportunity to accuse the admin of running a psyop. At this point, then entire thread vanished from the site, and I was blocked. I guess the admin took it really hard.

  2. bluekayak April 23, 2021 at 9:48 am #

    That’s a noble proposal, O.G., but you know the Bolshevik trolls will show up just to toss insults and stir the pot…

    • Slugoon April 23, 2021 at 10:06 am #

      The best course of action is to ignore such posts. Do not react nor reply, tempting as it may be.

      • O.G. Hawkins April 23, 2021 at 10:16 am #

        Good point.

      As I understand the Saul Alinsky book of tactics, the leftists trolls can use the moral restraints of their opponents to bind their opponents. While they are bound by no moral code whatsoever.

        • O.G. Hawkins April 23, 2021 at 11:19 am #

          Politeness is not the opposite of logic.

          Truly if one devolves into name-calling, one has already ceded the argument.

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder April 23, 2021 at 12:17 pm #

            Not if they are what you are calling them.

          • MaryV April 23, 2021 at 12:20 pm #

            Gotta agree with Mango.

            I hear that all the time, once you name-call you’ve lost the argument. Not necessarily. That doesn’t apply to all types of situations.

            As Mango says, sometimes they are what you call ’em.

          • O.G. Hawkins April 23, 2021 at 12:52 pm #

            But then you must wonder what you are even arguing for. Surely you won’t convince your adversary by calling him/her names, vald or not. Then it Just goes tribal here on CFN.

            It is much more productive to argue the facts and opinions rather than the person presenting the facts and opinions, imho.

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder April 23, 2021 at 1:08 pm #

            Only works if both parties are engaged using the same rules, say, debate club.

            Even then, you can still call the guy a dick when he oversteps.

            Not saying it should be the first, second or third resort…but sometimes it’s warranted.

            I know what you’re saying. There has been a lot of jumping to conclusions in this comment section. But there’s history there that often warrants that.

          • Blackbird April 23, 2021 at 1:13 pm #

            Yes, every sweeping statement sweeps up a lot of wrong – well, except for this one of course…

          • O.G. Hawkins April 23, 2021 at 1:15 pm #

            Good point, Mr M.

            Sometimes I feel like the substitute teacher with a bunch of Grade 8s. I don’t know the cliques or the history of long-running disputes.

            I tried.

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder April 23, 2021 at 1:41 pm #

            “I tried”

            It’s all good, OG.

            So did Jesus.

            And Gandhi.

            Worth putting it out there.

            But then you have to factor in the human equation and shrug.

          Time and again, reading about these astonishing displays of vandalism and lawlessness – disproportionally hurting the middle classes and the poor – I have the amusing thought “What if they tried these shenanigans in downtown Fort Worth or Phoenix? What if BLM put together one of their smash-‘n-grabs in Panama City?”

          I daresay the results would be, well, riotous. With luck the violent grifters would be tarred and feathered and ridden out of town on a rail. More likely they’d end up where the law says they should: doing serious time.

          Living in Southeast Asia for three decades, I must confess that observing the parade of sad-sack felonious heroes, the incessant demands – and the payoffs – get ever more bewildering. Reparations? Where do I sign up? I got some Cherokee blood bubbling downside me that howls for revenge.

          No, seriously: is corporate America and the MIC that anxious to shatter the consensus which has more or less served for two centuries?

          Sure looks that way from ten time zones away. Genie’s flown out of the bottle. Flown the coop.

        Good reminder. There is a reason Republicans are frequently referred to as “The Stupid Party.” It is because they keep insisting on adhering to Marquis de Queensbury rules while their Communist (Democrat) opponents are engaged in a down and dirty street fight that acknowledges no rules whatsoever.

        Under such conditions one must toss the so-called rules out the window if you do not wish to be summarily trounced in an unfair contest.

        So, sorry, but I don’t believe in treating communists like they are a civilized and loyal opposition when they are clearly nothing of the sort. I reserve the right to smack them around at-will, using every low-down trick in the book, if pushed to it, to prevail over such scum.

Of course it is Good to agree and have allies but Real progress is in flicking dark lightbulbs on. Complete the logical circuit & Voila!

    Tocqueville, 250 years ago, and Nietzsche, 150 years ago, predicted our current predicament. When you destroy the sense of the absolute in a culture, you have only the individual to fall back on for guidance on how to live a life. Individuals, being weak and feckless, depend more and more on government to lead and care for them. At a certain critical point, government assumes sufficient power to force totalitarianism and the masses are just a faceless crowd. American central government is now doing what Mr. K has described and is busy identifying the totems that are to be used in mass control, race being the main one.

    • MaryV April 23, 2021 at 10:20 am #

      Well said, shotho.

      So many could see the writing on the wall which clearly stated where we were headed. It just took time. Just in our lifetimes, what a massive shift.

    • Hereward the Woke April 23, 2021 at 2:41 pm #

      The relativists always make me laugh. They declare their belief with the most absolutist statement possible: there are no absolutes. Shouldn’t they be saying, “There may not, perhaps, maybe, actually, without jumping to conclusions, be absolutes”?

    • JohnAZ April 23, 2021 at 9:23 pm #

      Try this on for size.

      Throughout US history, old average Joe could keep up well with the current required knowledge of the technology available. He made a good voter, and could judge BS when he heard it.

      Today, and it is getting worse and worse, the average Joe has not a clue what makes his world turn. Lousy education and millions of uneducated immigrants have lowered the capability of the electorate to make rational votes.

      The last election showed this very much. If the real majority of the people are really suckers for the Deep State, we are history.

      Wonder why absolutely no one in the Deep State questioned the vote counts? The Deep State is not smart enough or informed enough to tell the difference.

      The result? Social media and computerized election making now control the country. The Patriots might as well not show up if something concrete is not done about legitimizing the election.

      One thing to think about rather than ignoring the situation is if the Dems win majorities everywhere, SC and Senate with DC, what are you going to do. If a world like this will exist, most of the folks in CFN will never fit in.

      • MaryV April 24, 2021 at 10:16 am #

        I already realize I don’t fit in. And that’s fine with me.

        I checked out of most aspects of American society years ago, not always consciously.

        Now, it’s consciously. Nothing society offers me is interesting or valuable.

        I wonder how many people that is true, for…

  4. vanman April 23, 2021 at 9:59 am #

    Wife & I left the big city in January to move to a small town. The pace of life & sense of security has us wondering why we didn’t move years ago.

    In the city from which we moved, there’s a murder or shooting a day. The Democrat administration makes excuses for the violence & is busy re-educating the police force.

    Don’t see how any of this ends well for the country.

    • MaryV April 23, 2021 at 10:26 am #

      I left a big city for a smaller one, and live out in the suburbs, mostly removed from city life, as well. I vastly prefer it. I did this last August, when I saw the direction the lockdowns and forced masking were going (e.g., permanent). I also wish I had done it years ago.

      There is little benefit to living in a city now, especially if you’re older and not someone who goes to the opera or out to eat.

      • Night Owl April 23, 2021 at 10:43 am #

        Same here. Although in Europe, one is never more than a stone’s throw from a large city.

        Still, it has been quite interesting to observe the differences in behavior between cityfolk and suburbfolk during the Corona Hoax.

        We got out right in time, not that it matters though, since the nightmare affects us all and shows no signs of ending soon — or at all.

        • MaryV April 23, 2021 at 12:18 pm #

          That’s interesting, that Europe has so many cities, one can’t get all that far away. What a difference from here, where you can drive for 6 hours without hitting one.

          Exactly, Night Owl. I live in a small Swiss farming town. I’m almost phobic about going to the nearest city. I can’t stand the maskholes with their dead, vacant eyes. Why be afraid of a zombie nightmare when we’re already zombies?

          • Night Owl April 23, 2021 at 4:51 pm #

            You should look to see if there are local groups that are on your level.

            One thing I have found is that there are many people who are quite aware of what is going on right now, even if they can only chalk it up to a feeling.

            The aim of the media these days is to make people feel alone. The reality is that many are awake.

            My wife is a died in the wool hard lefty and she had a rather extreme awakening over the past few weeks. Particlularly after Germany passed the Naziesque changes to the Infektionsschutzgesetz, which was already Verfassungswidrig in its orignal incarnation.

            Pretty much her entire office of social workers are now ready to march on the Reichstag.

      • SW April 23, 2021 at 11:39 am #

        I left Austin for a small town in north Texas less than a year ago. The cost of living in a small town is less, the traffic less homicidal and people are friendly and have no signs in their yards listing their virtues. We’ve all seen them — Love lives here, etc etc.

        A friend told me a few weeks ago that virtually everyone wears a mask at all times even though the governor opened up the state. No one wears one up here except the clerks who are forced to.

        The country is going to spit again and everyone who can get out of the city is going to run for their lives.

          This phenomenon also explains the ever widening divide between those skeptical of hasty vaccination programs and those insisting that anyone who does not comply should be punished. It’s not enough to declare oneself saved, everyone must convert.

          • GreenAlba April 23, 2021 at 11:20 am #

            There are people in the middle, MD.

            I think pretty much everyone on this website who has opted for the vaxx has said they made a personal and pragmatic decision, based on risk assessments. Risk assessments which are their business.

            I haven’t heard any of them suggest they want anyone else to get vaxxed if they don’t want to.

            I live in a quiet street in a capital city (not in the suburbs). I have known a number of my neighbours for the best part of 20 years. i don’t know anyone’s vaxx status or intentions and no-one knows mine. I would no more ask them than I would ask to see their medical records.

            But I’ve listened to a lot of insults and insinuations of stupidity and declarations of feigned (patronising) pity on here chucked at the people who made their own pragmatic decision without requiring any of you to follow suit.

            So I guess it can work both ways.

          • GreenAlba April 23, 2021 at 11:27 am #

            And I would add that ‘those skeptical of hasty vaccination programs’ and those who choose to be vaccinated may be one and the same in many cases.

            But as with many other not-entirely-cut-and-dried situations in life, you just have to make a decision and live with it.

            I haven’t heard any of them suggest they want anyone else to get vaxxed if they don’t want to.

            Not yet, GA, not yet.

            We are still ramping up. We are still jabbing the voluntary.

            But we are now plateauing in several countries and TPTB will not stand for this divide.

            Heckler pointed out Lester Holt yesterday. 22 fully vaxxed seniors were infected by an unvaxxed care-giver. One of the 22 died. What an asshole, Right?

            As Heckler pointed out, what kind of a vax is that? [A: Useless at Best]

            They are always twisting the vice handle, GA. Always. Tighter. Tighter.

            VaxPass and demonizing the unvaxxed will be of top-priotity through the rest of 2021, GA, and you’re like, “Me and my neighbours get along swell!”

          • cbeard April 23, 2021 at 12:08 pm #

            I have passed on the vaccine. I did get the Ziverdo drug combo to have on hand if I become infected with Covid. Someone here, I forget who, put up a link from India to get the zinc, ivermectin, doxycyline regimen of drugs. It came in blister packs with enough for 9 weeks. Since the start of the plandemic I have literally traveled coast to coast and only masked up when I had no choice. I am older and have some comorbidities but I won’t stop living life for fear of death.

            Indeed I have driven coast to cast and flown three times this year.
            Come into contact with literally thousands of people and have not even had the sniffles since the last time I got dreadfully sick right before all this got blown out of proportion.

          • pranah April 23, 2021 at 12:43 pm #

            @GreenAlba re: “i don’t know anyone’s vaxx status or intentions and no-one knows mine. I would no more ask them than I would ask to see their medical records.”

            Must be nice! I’ve never yet asked anyone their vaxx intentions–don’t have to. Just about everyone I know has volunteered their status/intentions to me, and at least half have asked me mine. I get this in person, over texts, email and phone, and from friends, family and casual acquaintances, on the street, in the stores, in restaurants, and on and on. It’s all I can do to hold my tongue when they tell me they’ve already taken it. I’m asking folks now if they had any reactions and am getting some harrowing stories of fevers, chills, pain so bad they can’t move their arms, full body aches, headaches, and so on. One young woman just told me the day after the second Moderna shot hit her like a runaway truck. WTAF, there’s never been a vaccine before that affected people so severely.

            And I still know only two people who have told me that they themselves had COVID–one of them just yesterday. But people don’t walk up to me and volunteer this information, so there’s that. But I do think I’d have heard if closer friends, family, or my chattier acquaintances had had it.

            Of course, we hear about escalating number of “cases” and people testing positive, but when I say, “But how many of these people are sick?” no one knows. One friend, a retired nurse, yet, said she thought everyone who tested positive had at least mild symptoms–I told her that’s not true, that there are an appalling number of false positives due to the way the PCR test is run, but she was absolutely not interested to hear it. And so on and on.

            It’s difficult to even try to stay informed anymore, because of the lies and spinning and general confusion. Only one person I know is savvy enough to say you can figure this out at least partially by following the money–and he’s right, as far as it goes. Division, deflection from other huge issues, depopulation, control and f knows what else is at play as well. But that’s all crazy conspiracy talk, according to most folks I know, so out of a sense of self-preservation I have decided to lay low, keep the eyes open, and not shoot off my mouth about my own thoughts. All I have to say is “I don’t do vaccines,” and people aren’t interested to pursue it. Works for me.

          • pranah April 23, 2021 at 12:45 pm #

            Sorry about the wall of italics! Never tried them before and thought I had only italicized “sick.” Wish there was a way to edit comments here.

          • GreenAlba April 23, 2021 at 12:45 pm #

            OG, I was talking about the people on here, who have had the vaxx and do not wish to force it on you. I could cite at least six, and I haven’t the slightest doubt that some on here have been vaxxed and wouldn’t mention it on here because of the level of discourse.

            I don’t doubt the existence of control freaks, official or otherwise.

            “Heckler pointed out Lester Holt yesterday. 22 fully vaxxed seniors were infected by an unvaxxed care-giver. One of the 22 died. What an asshole, Right?

            As Heckler pointed out, what kind of a vax is that?”

            Well, on first viewing, OG, I’d say that was a vax that was doing pretty much what it said on the tin. As in 95% (?) effective in preventing death or serious illness.

            In fact it seems to have done rather better, since there were apparently 83 residents in the home, 75 of them vaccinated.

            Eighteen of the 75 fully vaccinated residents were infected, but only one was hospitalized and later died.

            Meanwhile, six of the eight unvaccinated residents were infected. Four were hospitalized, and two died.

            Just depends where you do the cut and paste, eh, OG?

            By the way I’m fascinated to learn (from the citing of this story) that y’all are now promoting positive PCR tests as valid.

            Nice one. 🙂

            Alba: Maybe if you don’t come down with the symptoms, you also won’t be able to go thru the process and throw it off. Thus the vaccinated will become carriers and incubators of the various covids that are unleashed upon. Typhoid Mary’s. The Walking Dead – until their immune system collapses that is.

          • GreenAlba April 23, 2021 at 1:21 pm #

            Maybe the moon is made of green cheese, Yoho.

            In the meantime, in the care home cited, 50% of the unvaccinated residents were sick enough to be hospitalised and 25% of said unvaxxed are now dead.

            You do your thing and I’ll do mine. And good luck to all of us.

            But, really, do you wonder that I get so fed up of the dishonest use of statistics on here?

            If 22 of the whole bunch were ‘infected’ and I take 97% off that to humour the 97%-false-positive brigade, how many were infected? Supposedly?

            Bad faith. Visible from the green-cheese moon.

            @GA,

            I keep asking you this one simple question but you keep avoiding it:

            How, on God’s Green Earth, did a Saudi elite boy, former CIA, engineer the complete stand-down of US Air Defence of the Eastern seaboard of the Homeland one fine Tuesday morning from a cave in Afghanistan?

            Bonus question:

            How did me make 3 skyscrapers pulverize into toxic dust that same day?

            —-

            You see, once you face The Truth, everything changes. Clearly 9/11 was an inside job. D’uh!

            Once you know that, corraling 7,500,000,000 souls into a medical experiment is nothing more than standard evolution.

            So, GA, do you believe MSM explanation for 9/11?

          • GreenAlba April 23, 2021 at 1:33 pm #

            “VaxPass and demonizing the unvaxxed will be of top-priotity through the rest of 2021, GA, and you’re like, “Me and my neighbours get along swell!”

            A rather typical deliberate manipulation of what I said.

            What was actually there, if you cared to ‘think’, rather than insult, was a distinct lack of Covid hysteria in the sane place where I live.

            Three Hail Mary’s, OG.

          • GreenAlba April 23, 2021 at 1:36 pm #

            OG, under normal circumstances, I would answer your question.

            But since you are using it manipulatively as an alternative to apologising for the dishonest statistical mish-mash above, I’m not going to bother. Imagine that.

            And you’re an economist? So, no excuses for your deliberate misuse of statistics.

          • O.G. Hawkins April 23, 2021 at 2:43 pm #

            GA, I am sorry that I quoted Heckler & Lester Holt of NBC News and didn’t dig deeper. My bad.

            However, it does kind of prove my point. Lester Holt also did not provide me the stats that you have since provided.

            ——

            Now will you answer how a madman in a cave in Afghanistan pulverized 3 skyscrapers in Manhattan into toxic dust?

          • O.G. Hawkins April 23, 2021 at 4:30 pm #

            You see, GA? If you can’t answer that then it is hard to take anything that you say about our future seriously on account of you having your head up your ass.

            Seriously, OG, who the heck do you think you are?

            (1) There are things called time zones.

            (2) I have a life, things to do – I do not spend all of it in front of a keyboard, so if you want to throw your toys out the pram because you don’t get a reply on demand, that’s your problem.

            (3) I just spent valuable time answering your question, at some length, and when I clicked ‘submit’ I got ‘internal server error’, which I get not infrequently, and the whole thing disappeared.

            So I’m already pissed off that I wasted my time on a post that disappeared into the ether, because I forgot to copy it first, just in case, but your arrogance and bad faith have just entirely pissed me off so you can wait till I feel like it for me to type the ruddy thing out again.

            I’m going to walk the dog. And then my husband will be home from work (it’s 10pm here) so you can go and vent your arrogance on someone else, because I’ll be having a civil conversation with him instead and then going to bed.

          • Slugoon April 23, 2021 at 5:44 pm #

            Hoisted by your own petard there, OG! I would get those Hail Marys done and call it a night.

            Few things are more savoury than GA’s put-downs.

          • O.G. Hawkins April 23, 2021 at 8:26 pm #

            Seriously, OG, who the heck do you think you are?

            I’m Just a guy with some opinions, GA.

            Sorry if my adding to my thought appeared as impatience. It was not intended as such. I do happen to have some spare cycles while being a Refusenik hermit but will not apologize for that.

            As for my request for civil discussions on CFN, I was told to Fuck off so I shrugged and when in Rome …

            So … Now that we have all those formalities aside, I still am concerned that you are assuring us of science while you believe 2 airplanes pulverized 3 skyscrapers into dust.

            You see, that is not possible. The official story of that day is not possible. This becomes a litmus test.

            It is binary:

            If you believe the official story of that day, your head is up your ass. That is a fact. If you do not believe the official story of that day, then you can see that this vax sham to jab 7,500,000,000 souls with experimental gene therapy Frankenshit is crooked.

            You, however, believe that the vax sham is straight shootin.’ Therefore, your head is up you ass.

            Simple logic.

            GA – “(3) I just spent valuable time answering your question, at some length, and when I clicked ‘submit’ I got ‘internal server error’, which I get not infrequently, and the whole thing disappeared.”

            Alba, when this happens to me here (also not as infrequently as I’d prefer) I just hit the Back button in my browser, click on the same reply tab I did before, and my previously-typed “lost” comment reappears there, ready to send again. The next click almost always works.

            YMMV, but it’s been a pretty good fix.

          • MX Vet 57 April 24, 2021 at 1:36 pm #

            Excellent point, MD.

            OG, maybe I missed it, but I don’t recall anyone telling you to fuck off regarding your first post at the very top. Some said we should self police. Some said it’s not your job to moderate.

            What I don’t get is how you find it acceptable to tell GA she’s got her head up her ass. Bad form, dude.

            I hardly ever comment, but I do read the comments and have a general feel for most posters’ personalities. GA is smart and I am sure her head is not anywhere near her posterior.

          • O.G. Hawkins April 24, 2021 at 4:42 pm #

            @MX Vet 57, thank you for your thoughts on my form. Point taken.

            I should explain a couple of things:

            1) Actually, I got called “a dick” and that was seconded. I used some literary latitude to refer to that as being told Fuck you. I then further got told to not be a hall monitor. So I was like, ok, colloquialisms are accepted & even encouraged here at CFN. I am new. I am learning.

            2) I have asked GA a few times, since she assures us of jab safety with Science, her stand vis-a-vis 2 airplanes pulverizing 3 skyscrapers (and their over 250 stories of offices, kitchens, bathrooms and boardrooms) into dust one fine Tuesday morning.

            You see, I am not Just being insulting and foul-mouthed for rudeness sake. Or unfairly directing that at Green Alba.

            Rather anybody and everybody who believes that Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld were surprised on that day have their heads up their respective asses.

            My point is: If you believe the official story of that day then you are disqualified from speaking about Science.

            GA, I am frustrated with my fellow man as they are sheeple. Please do not take it personally as billions walk around with their cranium up their rectum.

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder April 24, 2021 at 7:39 pm #

            “So I was like, ok, colloquialisms are accepted & even encouraged here at CFN.”

            Well…CFN is Clusterfuck Nation, afterall. Colloquialisms (or “colorful metaphors” as Spock and Kirk once said back when I was a lad) work just fine…of course, using them carefully, and with a point, tends to go a long way.

            It’s all good.

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder April 24, 2021 at 7:43 pm #

            “My point is: If you believe the official story of that day then you are disqualified from speaking about Science.”

            I like you, OG, but we do a lot of talking here about Straw Man arguments…and the above is a prime example.

            e.g.”You believe the vax is a good thing? So you must believe the official 9/11 story too.”

            e.g. “You voted for Trump? So you’re a racist, homophobic narcissist then?”

            Same thing.

            Just sayin.

            That said, can’t argue with you on 9/11. That was a complete shitstorm of a coverup from the get go.

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder April 24, 2021 at 8:49 pm #

            OG – not to nag you, and not that I think a Straw Man is a bad way to argue, it can be very effective.

            But dicks like me will call it out, because when noticed it’s obvious…

          • MaryV April 24, 2021 at 9:24 pm #

            @prana, it’s nauseating. Zoom meeting after zoom meeting, I see coworkers high fiving and squealing about their vaccines, and rolling their eyes about anyone who is ‘stupid’ enough not to get it or even ask which vaccine they are being given. Yeah, not exaggerating… these are people with advanced degrees and not one has researched anything about it. They do whatever their idol Fauxi says. Not one of them know he’s a psychotic bag man for the global big pharma/banking cartels.

            They are so far away from reality, it’s amazing. At least my boss (a vaxx addict, who also just got her teenage daughter vaxxed, and they all got sick, hope she doesn’t want grand children) hasn’t put me on the spot to outright ask me if I got it. But my department have all been, and all got sick. One still feels like crap and can’t figure out why. She got the jab like 3 weeks ago.

            This is insanity on wheels. I am so VERY glad I learned about social engineering, control, hypnotism, mass psychosis, and mass hysteria over the past 20 years so I was prepared to resist.

            A quick hello to those on this sub-thread. I have just dropped by at 12.45 a.m. to find it longer than I was expecting.

            So, very quickly, before I disappear to bed, again:

            (1) Hello and thank you to MX Vet 57, whom I do not know, but whose support I appreciate;

            (2) Thank you to Mr Mango for the tech advice – I think I have tried that one and found it not to work for me. I really should know by now, because that damned ‘internal server error’ thingy really gets my goat, to do a quick Ctrl + C before attempting to submit anything more than two sentences, but I often forget.

            (3) Mr Hawkins’ post deserves a longer reply than I’m prepared to consider at bed time, so he’ll just have to wait till the morning. And I would note, further – given Mr Hawkins’ manner – that his post deserving a reply is a very different thing from Mr Hawkins deserving a reply. But he should not, even in the case of his post, read too much into the word ‘deserve’.

            (4) “Actually, I got called “a dick” and that was seconded.

            I try to be polite on here, normally, but, just this once, please consider it thirded.

          • GreenAlba April 26, 2021 at 9:12 am #

            Mr H

            OK, where to start … Perhaps by asking you to remember that this is a discussion forum and not the Lubyanka. And that you are a recently arrived poster who hardly waited to get his feet under the table before presuming to separate posters who’ve been here for years into sheep and goats. You are not the only one – I could mention another two, who followed much the same pattern.

            One of the big differences between you and me is that you *know* things, whereas I mostly *know* what I don’t know.

            For example, I don’t know the origin of the SARS-Cov-2 virus. It could have been leaked from a lab doing dodgy research – or not. I don’t think China released it deliberately, because I think they would know it would be a very very loose cannon that might come back to bite them on the arse (I like mixed metaphors – they add to the gaiety of life). But maybe they really are that arrogant? Or it could just possibly have a more ‘natural’, if culturally bizarre, origin. So it goes into a compartment in my mind called ‘things I don’t know enough about’. It’s a phenomenally big compartment. I’m not sure from your approach to things if you even have a small one.

            Moving on to your bête noire, you seem to think I have been avoiding a question about 9/11, while I have no recollection of seeing any such question before this thread, apart from possibly in a list of other happenings you included in a post, in my response to which I pointed out that you’d never seen me comment one way or the other on any of them. But you are in Gotcha mode, so I guess I have to sit tied to that chair under the naked lightbulb in order to comply with your view of your place in the world – and on here. (But do try to remember that not everyone reads every post and goes back assiduously every few hours to check they haven’t missed an update.)

            It took me the time necessary to watch George Bush’s face when told the news to figure out that something wasn’t right about that ‘surprise’ attack. He sat in a kids’ classroom looking as if he was waiting for Nanny to tell him what to do. Or think. So, as far as deep state dodgy geezers being ‘involved’ in whatever way, even just by knowing in advance and saying nothing, I suspected that from the first.

            For the mechanics of it, I’m not an engineer. So, years ago I read an account of the ‘debunking’ of the mainstream narrative. Then I read a ‘debunking’ of the ‘debunking’ of the mainstream narrative. And finally, as regards the mechanics of the thing, that got parked in the big compartment of ‘things I don’t know enough about’.

            You can make of that what you will. Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.

          • GreenAlba April 26, 2021 at 9:17 am #

            Moving on… The word sheeple, for me, goes into the compartment of ‘hackneyed phrases best avoided’, but if you insist, let’s go there. There are different flocks of ‘sheeple’. Let me mention another flock.

            There is a person on here who told us, in defence of the anti-mask brigade, that Dr Fauci (in whose reputation I have zero interest – he’s just some furrin medic) co-authored a paper in which it was suggested that masks themselves were a cause of the post-viral bronchial pneumonia which killed people in the 1918 flu pandemic. This is the fakest of fake news, since masks are not even mentioned in this paper. But it fits the narrative of another flock of sheeple.

            And another person who *knows* everything and can’t stop congratulating herself on her superiority to her fellow beings, believes the moon landings were a hoax because the astronauts couldn’t have got through the Van Allen radiation belts alive. Now, guess who called this aspect of the conspiracy theory (yes, in this case, we can call it that) ‘entertaining nonsense’?

            No, no guesses? Well, it was a certain Dr James Van Allen, he of said radiation belts. But this poster also swallows fake news (and very eagerly) so is equally a member of another flock of sheeple. And this person, who thinks she *knows* more about the astronauts and the Van Allen belts than Dr Van Allen himself, calls other people ‘narcissists’ if they call her out on anything in her hundreds of weekly posts. She thinks that’s what ‘narcissist’ means. I mean, how dare they? And she got that from the other one in the same flock of fake-news sheeple.

            Note that you are also a willing spreader of bullshit, in the case of the care home where, in actual fact, 1.33% of the vaccinated died when infected with Covid (better than the advertised 95% effectiveness) while 25% of the unvaccinated died. I wonder what you’d have advised your dad to do, if he’d been in there. Your weaselly excuse, like Trump’s when he forwarded a lying post by someone from ‘Britain First’ – i.e. it wasn’t me – a big boy did it and ran away – makes you no less of a bullshit spreader on that occasion.

            I will deal with your ‘false witness’ issues separately. Those commandments really are dropping like skittles, Mr Soprano. 

        • MaryV April 23, 2021 at 12:10 pm #

          Spot on. The term ‘dying of embarrassment’ has its roots in reality.

          Most of us like to admit when we’re wrong, and we truly hate admitting we’ve been duped. I learned to do it and it gets easier every time.

          The perceived shaming people expect when they admit mistakes usually doesn’t occur. People for the most part, are forgiving. So, I wonder why we have this innate fear of being wrong?

            Is it just me or has anyone else read about those who have been vaccinated creating spike proteins and contaminating those who have not been vaccinated through respirations?

            Young women who have not had the jab are suddenly experiencing weird menstrual problems and passing huge clots. Some women who haven’t had a period in 20 years are suddenly bleeding with large clots.

            An unvaccinated person sleeps with a vaccinated person and wakes up with bruises all over her body.

            I hope all of this is merely anecdotal bullshit, but I have to laugh at the potential irony. All the people in my life shaming me for not getting the vax and them not wanting to come to my house out of fear that I might be an asymptomatic carrier.

            Now I can tell them I don’t want to be near them cause their spike proteins from the vax could kill me!

          • Blackbird April 23, 2021 at 3:26 pm #

            Abby,

            I’ve read that too, but so far have been too lazy to follow up and see if a mechanism has been hypothesized. If these reports are accurate, that’s one (or more?) weird vaccine.

            I have read that the mRNA “vaccine” could cause complications (like infertility) due to the production of those “spike proteins” in order to trigger an “immune response”. But these interactions seem to occur within individuals and not between them.

          • Pat Ormsby April 23, 2021 at 6:14 pm #

            @abbybwood,
            I’ve heard this from several sources in the past two days, one of which I trust (doctor involved in studies of electromagnetic bioeffects, i.e., open-minded, who is corresponding with the dr. reporting these). We will probably be hearing a lot about this, denounced as disinformation by the corporate press and suppressed in the coming weeks. Here is what she related this morning:

            “I watched the video from Dr. Larry Palevsky on COVID-19 vaccine shedding that R sent. It is clear and concise as R said, and explains the shedding issue well.
            https://www.bitchute.com/video/oAoEyug8Lz2U/

            “My notes:

            “4:52 the vaccine provides genetic (mRNA) instructions to make spike protein in our own cells. It’s safety has not been tested, and we aos don’t know then this process or our own cells producing spike proteins wil stop.
            6:00 – the spike protein in the natural SARS-CoV-2 virus is responsible for brain inflammation, neurological damage, kidney disease, heart attacks, lung and liver disease, interference with male and female reproductive systems, and interference with blood binding to oxygen and causing clotting.
            8:00 – in those infected with SARS-CoV-2, the spike protein has been found in saliva and anus. So the question we need to answer is “is the spike protein found in exhaled air and sweat of people who have been vaccinated?” and “Does that impact people they come in contact with?
            9:22 – as long as spike protein is produced, antibodies continue to be produced
            10:00 – the spike protein is not specific to SARS-CoV-2. We have genetic instructions to produce spike proteins that are similar to many proteins in humans. So the spike protein antibodies we are producing will attack our own tissue too (autoimmune condition)
            11:00 European study found similarities in instructions in spike protein of male and female reproductive systems to the instructions of the coronavirus spike protein. This could problems with sperm, eggs, and placenta.
            13:40 – there are hundreds of percents higher miscarriages, stillbirths reported now following vaccinations. Now seeing women around those who have been vaccinated having miscarriages also.”

          • hmuller April 23, 2021 at 8:48 pm #

            OK, tin hat time. I’m not presenting truth or fact here, just laying out some possibilities.

            A few years ago I was amazed and confused when I came across something called the Deagle Report produced by a shadowy defense-intell community corporation. It,predicted a decrease of the USA population to under 100 million by year 2025. GDP decreased by a far greater percentage, indicating the surviving remnant would live in abject poverty.

            Deagel says it references government and military web
            sources to make projections of things like population,
            GDP, PPP and the like for various countries, although
            it doesn’t show the formulas.

            The link below discusses Deagle and shows an excerpt from one of their recent reports predicitng 2025 USA data.

            https://www.algora.com/Algora_blog/2020/04/10/deagel-makes-mysterious-changes-to-2025-population-forecast-for-america-as-bill-gates-launches-gran-d-challenge-the-holy-grail-of-influenza-research-and-b

            Then you compare that to what blogger Clif High says (in the two links below) about the mRNA vaccines causing infertility, dementia, and death on a mass scale. It’s all very worrying. We shall see what happens. My approach is “see everything, hear everything, believe nothing.”

            I also have been reading a lot about that.

            In fact, I am seeing more and more articles/posts coming out warning that people who are not vaxxed but are near a vaxxed person for long periods are having bizarre reactions. So there is likely something to it? But I think it is transferred through spit so if you’re not kissing someone I think you’re probably OK. At least that’s what I am seeing so far. If I get a comprehensive report I will post it.

          • Yohannon April 24, 2021 at 12:33 pm #

            One of these bitchutes talked about how the body might be making these spike proteins endlessly. Thus the body will body will start to “shed” them in the breath, sweat, etc.

          For me this has been especially troubling. My stepmother said that they would not see me at a family get together because I was unvaccinated. I did not submit. When that did not work, she told my sister that if my sister interacted with me, then they would not see my sister either.

      • Slugoon April 23, 2021 at 12:46 pm #

        As a point of order, JHK was talking about the race hustle when he mentioned 13%/87% whereas I was admittedly thinking more about the pandemic reaction (and so were others by the comments). Perhaps you were too? But there are parallels.

        From the pandemic point of view, almost nobody I have encountered in any social circle is even remotely fired up about any of it. Half the country is scared witless and with do or believe anything the government tells them for a few crumbs of ‘safety’. The other half, well, they might not like it but they are going along with it for an easy life.

        From the race hustle point of view, it is apparent that a significant number of the 87% (white people) are fully on board with all of the things JHK outlines above. Not all, of course, and many people will undoubtedly be afraid to speak up. Afraid. Look up the meaning of the words JHK used: craven and feckless. You might not agree with it but you’re going along with it, i.e. getting hustled.

        • Wizard of the Saddle April 23, 2021 at 1:49 pm #

          Actually, white people are more like 62% of the national population. The other 25% that gets you to the 87% level are comprised on all other racial minorities excepting negroes.

          Of course, it does not take all 62% of whites to facilitate the current Afro Supremacist race racket. 13% (blacks) + 25% (other minorities) + another 13% (Marxist White Morons) gets you to a 51% majority for fraudulent misgovernance.

          Given this country’s current demographics, it simply does not take many defections by deluded Wokester whites to tip the balance of the country over to “Full-On Insane” anymore.

          This is why the only hope left for non-deluded white people is separation and partition. American traditionalist whites who do not wish to surrender their language, culture, free economy, and Republican constitutionalist form of government will have to carve off a big chunk of free states for themselves and let all of these multikulti freaks have places like California and a few other Blue State tyranny basket case states to sit and stew in as they continue to pursue the socialist road to ruin.

          • Hereward the Woke April 23, 2021 at 2:48 pm #

            Correct, Wizard. Trump’s tenure in office and his demise showed clearly a) how evil and deep the corruption is in DC and b) that it is virtually impossible to destroy. Therefore, the only answer is some kind of secession. How that will happen, and what the body count will be, are another matter.

        • Slugoon April 23, 2021 at 3:55 pm #

          Good points, Wizard. I stand corrected on the demographics and concede that it only takes a vocal minority, not even 51%.

          I wasn’t intending to imply that you are all sitting back letting it happen. I know your hands are tied. I was a staunch Brexiteer and am a staunch anti-masker/anti-lockdowner and I know the feeling of being demonised for expressing such views.

There are a lot of people (namely, my coworkers) who have zero idea this is going on, so they just go along with it, because it seems like the ‘right thing to do’. Some seem uncomfortable but won’t articulate why, for fear of reprisal, etc.

          I think people are even more afraid to discuss this than they are covid19 opinions.

          • Yohannon April 24, 2021 at 12:36 pm #

            It is the most powerful force in the average human life. I think many may think they are weighing the evidence but really are just kidding themselves. They are going to take it because everyone else is.

            If they really weighed the evidence, they wouldn’t take it.

    The one thing I try to do is keep a sense of humor and not completely lose touch with the people we’ve known who have joined the woke cult.

    I can hardly talk to one friend for how woke he is. Happens this guy is a friend of Jim’s, too. But I am determined not to cut him out of my life.

    The division is the one thing the real, true, universal bad guys want.

    • hmuller April 23, 2021 at 10:09 am #

      Once they’re woke, they are walking zombies. Pile them up and light them on fire. It’s the only humane thing to do.

    • SW April 23, 2021 at 10:29 am #

      A friend who lives in an all white enclave in Santa Fe is so woke she makes Al Sharpton look like overseer. Of course there’s little chance of crime affecting them and Trump is the man who caused all the problems anyhow.

      I don’t think 87% of the people are responsible for this mess or agree with what’s happening. Maybe 20 to 30% but I’m no judge really and it’s just a a guess.

      • Ron Anselmo April 23, 2021 at 11:20 am #

        You’re right SW – 13%, plus 7-17% of the remaining 87% is correct, so 20-30%. Right on.

      • Mountain gal April 23, 2021 at 11:24 am #

        Yes, I’m not sure what the actual percentage of the terminally woke is but it’s not 87%.

        • MrMangoOnMyShoulder April 23, 2021 at 11:41 am #

          Agreed. But the hard part is that most keep their mouths shut for fear of the 20-30% who currently “have the floor” ruining their lives.

          I feel the same pressure, and generally stfu when around woke friends/family (defined as “people who keep bringing the woke topic du jour up in order to let others know they are virtuous”).

          If I’m pushed, I’ll talk, carefully. But I’m not out there starting anything up in public. Of course, I probably should, as should everyone with a voice to be heard when illogic is being given the run of the land.

          Probably haven’t been pushed far enough yet?

          Either way, Joe McCarthy would be proud.

          • O.G. Hawkins April 23, 2021 at 12:20 pm #

            people who keep bringing the woke topic du jour up in order to let others know they are virtuous … and current.

            Once confirmed, a MSNBC zealot must be virtuous in the most recent ways and topics. They must stay current with the current.

            Corporate brain-washing needs ratings for corporate advertising. This costs money and America isn’t going to dumb itself!

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder April 23, 2021 at 12:28 pm #

            “And current”…interesting point.

            Kind of a direct offshoot of the progressive mindset. If you’re not on to the next perceived disaster you’re not progressive enough.

            To my mind, fixing things that are broken or obviously breaking is of course a smart move. Looking for the next thing to fix just because you have to find one breeds insanity. (unless, say, you’re an engineer at a nuclear power plant or something…then that mindset is a good idea…the rest of us though, insanity.)

          • Blackbird April 23, 2021 at 12:31 pm #

            There is little point in attempting a discussion with someone whose mind is already made up. Whatever the issue, people are more polarized than I can remember. They want affirmation, not discussion.

            A good time to see what family and friends are really made of. I liked most of them better before I knew them so well…

          • Yohannon April 23, 2021 at 1:07 pm #

            No, McCarthy was fighting Communism and was destroyed by them. If we had listened to him, we wouldn’t be here.

            Yeah, one side fights by the Queensberry rules and the other is using Frontier “gouging” (no hold barred”). Who is gonna win?

            Oh it doesn’t matter, right? Better to lose than not play fairzies.

            A very long way to go. You see that’s Liberalism in its late or corrupted form. The very thing that enabled the monsters.

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder April 24, 2021 at 10:00 am #

            Fine, Yohannon. Go for it. Tell me what people need to do to not “have a long way to go” to “see the Truth”.

            Don’t know too many people more cynical than myself, so I’m guessing you’ll not be breaking much new intellectual ground with me when it comes to humanity/society, but you can give it go if you somehow still don’t see that.

            I’m also a generally reasonable person, who has no desire to do harm, just to live life for me and mine.

            But I like to learn people’s angles.

            So lay it out. What is your endgame here? What actions, motives and thoughts do you require of people not playing the woke game in order to acknowledge they are sentient?

            Instead of just continually saying the equivalent of “You have just begun to learn, Grasshopper” as if this were an episode of Kung Fu.

            Perhaps the best time to speak up would have been very early on–back when most who were skeptical were keeping their heads down. As in, back in March and April of 2020.

            I was able to do so–mainly by posting articles and engaging in discussions on our local community page on Facebook. The reason I was able to do so is because my income is not dependent on the local economy, and I don’t have a job where my company’s HR department is checking my social media to make sure I hold the “correct” opinions.

            I began to post dissenting views and information back in March of 2020, and even I was a little afraid to. I knew I had to speak up, to prevent others who were skeptical from being cowed into silence. I began getting PMs from people who agreed with me but did not feel able to go public on this: local schoolteachers and business owners. (I get it.)

            I found that most of my family members agreed with me, though some waffled quite a bit longer than I thought was reasonable. I mostly avoided the subject with liberal friends. (We seem to be mutually agreed to avoid political subjects.) If they chose to bring it up, it was the worse for them. I will not humor mentally ill people if they are harming or advocating for harming others. (Otherwise, it has long been my practice to humor other people’s often rather fantastic delusional systems, and even encourage them to spin ever-more-fantastic yarns, for my own enjoyment.)

            I like to think that it was because I began speaking up early, that other people did too–thus (perhaps) alerting our local authorities that they did not have the desired consensus.

        • messianicdruid April 23, 2021 at 12:29 pm #

          I thought the 87% was being attributed to the silent majority. So who is the 13% , not a majority.

            The 13% represents the community from which such flowers as St. George, Daunte Wright, OJ, et. al., blossomed.

        Divide and Conquer is a real thing. Been tested and proven many times. Usually not with positive results for the majority of the people caught in the fray.

        FWIW – I think the most important thing we can do as civilized people is to still be friends with someone with opposite views. As long as they are willing to offer the same. Those that can’t, yes, discard relations. Toxic relationships are one thing…but long friendships that are tested due to politics and world views are worth giving the benefit of the doubt, or at the very least a second look.

        • Anthea April 24, 2021 at 6:58 pm #

          The run-on sentence has a venerable history. The modern view that it is automatically poor English usage is a product of modern subliteracy, short attention spans, the ubiquitousness of communications in “sound bites” and slogans. A run-on sentence, provided the writer does not find himself lost in a maze of his own creation, is often the most concise possible expression of a complex idea.

          Our present-day arbiters of language would restrict us to communicating in grunts, growls, and howls. It would be best if we did not concede to their incremental imposition of strictures that tend in that direction.

      There’s a hint as to why they are as they are in Jim’s excellent interview with the anonymous high school physics teacher: Victimhood is all the rage. If people aren’t a victim, they aren’t special, so they have to figure out how to become a big enough victim to win the Oppression Olympics. It’s no way to go through life. Sadly, now these professional victims hold all the cards and the coddling is being institutionalized everywhere. This is in large part why we are doomed.

        I have few “woke” friends, but, for the past three or four years, their dinner-party conversation has consisted of a litany of their lifelong sufferings at the hands of the “un-woke.” These are mostly tales of how Mom liked their sibling best, or they were befriended a Jesus freak in college (forty years ago), who betrayed their trust by pretending to like them, when they really wanted to convert them.

        Listening to these people describe their unique affliction with indifferent or malicious friends and relatives was like listening to a cub scout list his merit badges. And it went on, and on, and ON.

        Exactly. The adults failed that kid, starting with her birth parents and up through the people who have cared for her. Apparently everyone forgot the lesson about not using physical violence to settle normal everyday disagreements.

        I’ve heard two versions of the argument: one that it was over a messy room and untidiness among the girls, the second that it was over sneakers. The messy room argument seems more likely, and should not have generated such a knock down drag out fight, let along thinking getting a knife was a good idea.

        But it is so easy for many to try and pin the blame for this kid’s death on the cop. Yes, he shot her; but he is not to blame for her death. Lack of a decent upbringing is why she is gone.

      I’m guessing though, the family that wouldn’t take care of her & put her in foster care (probably couldn’t keep her under control) will walk away with millions of dollars if they put up a big enough stink.

      • Ishabaka April 23, 2021 at 10:39 am #

        Another whitewash (again, racist?) is the idea that four shots were excessive. Real life is not like the movies – one pistol shot rarely immediately stops a criminal. I personally have seen a man who was shot 7 times by the police who was fully functional about eight hours later, with no medical care.

          Exactly, depending on where shot, someone may not even react if they are in a fit of rage. Adrenalin does that.

      Two 13 year old girls got into a fight and one stabbed the other to death; happened just the other day in Cincinnati, Ohio. Both girls are black. No one cares though as it didn’t involve a cop. They ignore the fact that attacking someone with a knife is not just harmless, can be lethal and is not a normal way for teenagers to behave. And if the cop didn’t intervene and shoot the 16 year old girl with the knife, she may well have killed the other girl. But as BLM and the woke don’t actually care about black lives, just defunding the police, it’s not important to them.

      • Ron Anselmo April 23, 2021 at 1:02 pm #

      • Yohannon April 23, 2021 at 1:19 pm #

        It’s not normal for White girls to behave like this. But who knows what’s normal for them? In the ghetto violence is quite common.

        Back when we dominated them, psychically as well as physically, they didn’t act like this. But now that our influence is wearing off, maybe they are returning to their norm.

    • Yohannon April 23, 2021 at 1:15 pm #

      I think they stepped in it on this one. Flush from their victory they tried to keep pushing the Agenda – and disgusted normal White Americans completely.

      Does anyone still think these people are like us? The more they talk, the more alien they show themselves to be. Ditto the Whites who accept this.

      And this incident is said to have happened at the same time as Chauvin’s verdict. God led them into a Trap and they fell into it.

      • Wizard of the Saddle April 23, 2021 at 1:58 pm #

        Yohannon – Indeed they did. Tucker Carlson was in supreme mocking mode last night pointing out that the latest Leftwing enthusiasm is that white cops should refrain from interfering white black girls busily trying to stab one another. It was a real hoot to listen to.

          I think that’s a great idea. If the issue is between blacks, let them solve it. Don’t involve the police as in the end, the police will only be blamed.

    And the cherry on top of this pile of … (well, you know) is that the bill to “reign in the police” will be named after none other than George Floyd, Career Criminal. Because, you see, all he was doing was passing a counterfeit $20 and counting on the fact that his imposing size would intimidate the clerk (which it did) but I guess he didn’t count on the quivering clerk to call the police since it would be taken out of his dismal paycheck. So hard to think of everything!

    The trial served the purpose of revenge beautifully but justice, not so much. I watched the press conference after the verdict and the usual race hustlers were spouting off. They have no intention of ending the drama as they made clear.

        Just the usual spineless collapse. Until someone or some company takes a stand that it’s their decision and not SJWs how their company will be run, it will continue.

        I agree with Jim’s column today — it’s essentially over now that the police has been stripped of any authority to enforce the law, there will be no law in the ghetto and it will spread out to the cities they’re in. Look at Minneapolis for a glimpse to the future. What company would want to relocate there? Or even downtown Seattle, seeing what happened last summer?

          Presently, this mainly is an issue the most “woke” of cities where communist city governments reward black criminals and punish white cops. Any white cop who fails to resign and move away from such hellholes will, eventually, end up either dead or in jail.

          In sane Free States law enforcement goes on as normal without these bizarro world distortions, for the most part, but all fear the “Woke” DOJ emerging under A.G. Merrick Garland, which could make life more difficult for cops even in sane jurisdictions.

    We are told that the Earth reversed its magnetic poles a number of times in prehistory and may be about to do so again. Historically, political parties have occasionally been known to do something similar.

    Since Bill Clinton managed to outflank the Republicans with Neoliberal economics, Big Business has largely switched its allegiance to the Dems. At some point aren’t the Republicans likely to reconsider the idea of representing now-forsaken working class people?

    After all, most politicians care more about votes than principle, and polarized social issues are already divvied up in such a way that increasing numbers of the ninety nine per cent have had a belly full of what now stand for Democratic “values.”

    I can imagine a time in the not-distant future when the liberal professional elite discover that the masses hate their guts like they did Herbert Hoover during the Great Depression, and that working people regard the Republican Party as their hope for salvation.

    • O.G. Hawkins April 23, 2021 at 10:38 am #

      Zoltar, it is Frick v Frack. Laurel & Hardy. Abbott & Costello. Pro rasslin’.

      most politicians care more about votes than principle

      They care about Power & Money. They need votes to attain Power & Money and they need Power & Money to attain votes.

      Priciples? As if.

      Your 2-Party System and its noble goal of bi-partisanship is a ruse. A sham. A shake-down.

      • Zoltar April 23, 2021 at 11:49 am #

        Hawkins:

        It is not my two-party system, and far be it from me to attribute any positive motivations to any American politicians in the twenty first century.

        But the Republicans have been out-cheated by the Democrats in recent years and will have to devise a new strategy, no matter how disingenuous. It’s not as if the voters are hard to fool.

        If you see another strategy for them, let me know, but I speculate that they may prefer to pretend to represent the working classes than never to win another election.

        A new generation of Republicans may surprise you by starting to condemn Big Business and billionaires.

        • O.G. Hawkins April 23, 2021 at 12:38 pm #

          Apologies for calling it ‘your’ system. Please know that I view that the American system of government was a shining beacon for all humanity and it is tragic that it has been hi-jacked.

          Sure. If the Republicans want votes, sure. I guess. Flip from fat-cat Right to blue-collar Left.

          But know that it is all window-dressing. It is shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic.

          The all-seeing capstone of the pyramid runs Washington. They wear Blue & Red. They own everyone. Paul Wellstone & Cynthia McKinnon are rare and are weeded out.

          So, ya, if you like being a little Hulkster and are eating your Cherios every morning, you can cheer for the big GOP comeback if you like.

            Yes, the binary code is a big part of life. Yes/No. Hate/Love. Go/Stay. Good/Bad. A lot of “thinking” is just reacting as per to binary. If you have both sides of the coin, you have the vast majority who can only react in binary fashion. Even ONE decent Third Party would throw a monkey wrench into that.

            My respect for Trump reached the nadir when he said at CPAC, Why would I leave the Republican Party? Some are thinking as the previous poster said. But by and large they will just continue to be the professional losers they have been for generations. And if somehow they manage to get power again, they will do nothing with it. Pro-Wrestling. They’re all friends in the purple locker room.

            Thanks for not blaming me for the “two party” system, but now you accuse me of rooting for the Republicans. The only thing I have rooted for in the past couple of decades is the destruction of both partisan tribes.

            Nor am I foolish enough to suppose for a moment that the trend I anticipate will make things a damned bit better. We have all seen both parties supposedly on the brink of dissolution more than once. They know they need each other, and it ain’t gonna happen.

            All I have done is suggest a possible scenario for the next act of the great national farce, so kindly do not attribute sentiments to me which I have not expressed.

      Most of the GOP leadership consists of RINO globalists who need be taken out back and shot. Once that’s done, there is hope.

      I think that time’s already here, more or less. That said, the masses also seem to hate both sides more and more everyday. That’s encouraging at least. Not that the pols care either way. If we had an election where everyone sat it out in protest they’d just manufacture the numbers to support whoever they intended to install anyway. That was the lesson of 2020. Vote, don’t vote, or stay home and get drunk and do drugs. It just doesn’t matter. We’re going to do what we do no matter what, and what you people think about it is totally irrelevant to us.

    Someone asked me on Monday what my take was on the Ashli Babbitt shooting.

    One thing that confused me was that respectable sources kept saying the name of the shooter was known, but not being released.

    I recently heard another reputable person state that there were two names being floated as the gunman, so he wasn’t going to print either, not knowing which was correct.

    So, if there are two names in circulation ( I have only heard one) then one of them has to be false.

    If there is one false name being put out to confuse people, isn’t it also possible that both names are false?

    My opinion right now is that the Ashli Babbitt shooting didn’t happen.
    I haven’t seen any evidence that it has, and there is plenty to suggest that it did not.

    A man lay in state in the rotunda based on a bald-faced lie. If they’s lie about one death, they’d lie about another.

    The timing of the announcement of the closing of the case seems to be a planned effort at provocation.

    A white Trump supporter shot down in cold blood, and the (allegedly) dark skinned cop doesn’t even get named, let alone prosecuted, while a white cop who may o may not have contributed to the death of George Floyd doesn’t even get the presumption of innocence and a fair trial?

    That’s rubbing our noses in it.

      hello Beryl.

    • MaryV April 23, 2021 at 10:43 am #

      Beryl, your conjecture is spot on. We are of like mind. I think they can’t release the name of a shooter because this was a horribly flawed and badly executed false flag. That video breakdown inside the room? Laughable! Even a friend of mine on FB who was there said she saw them wheel a woman out of there, with her chest bared and still alive! Why do this spectacle?

      That they have not named the ‘shooter’ to me speaks volumes. Maybe they are still desperately looking for a scapegoat.

      The other deaths that happened either on that day or near to it also had nothing to do with the event. We now know that the cop who CNN reported had been hit with a fire extinguisher was not, and he didn’t die in the hospital that night, either. All of those deaths that were attributed to the riot suddenly became hush-hushed or outright ignored for what really happened to them (heart attacks, etc.) but the number SIX DEAD! is still bandied about.

      Everything about the incident is fraudulent. I wish David McGowan were still alive to take it down piece by piece as he has for other events of this type.

      • Beryl of Oyl April 23, 2021 at 10:51 am #

        They needed a Trump supporter dead at the hands of police.

        If they’d gone ahead and actually killed one, they couldn’t contain the fallout, and there would be too much chance someone would end up being tried for murder.

        I watched the John Sullivan movie – not the documentary being made about him as he joined those touring the Capital, but the one he made as he was starring in his own movie… Terrible script, acting and direction. It’s like they don’t even try anymore.

        Ashli Babbitt took a long time climbing through that window – with a “cop” pointing a gun at her almost the whole time, and a line of cops standing behind her doing nothing. They continued to do nothing even as she “fell” slowly and carefully to the floor.

        I think they decided this one stinks so bad let’s just sweep in under the rug and everyone will forget. And they are right – even though that’s getting to be a mighty lumpy carpet.

          I saw a black woman trying to convince a Trump supporter to go in and start some violence. She was wearing a MAGA hat, but sounded like an instigator.

          That documentary I posted shows a lot of this pattern. The ones that have obvious jobs, the agents provacateurs, the bad actors.

            This is pure speculation but I think that TPTB were counting on Trumpers to be more violent than tourists both at Capital Hill Jan. 6 and throughout the country in the weeks following. I think that Ashli Babbitt was a false flag to stir it up but it fell flat. Thus Blackbird’s lumpy carpet.

            YES! They buy their own bullshit narrative. As Karl Rove has said, they create their own reality. And their narrative was built on “Trump supporters are all violent white supremacists”.

            Well, I have a LOT of FAR lefty friends who voted for Trump, because he didn’t start wars, or sign any more laws that further dissolve our constitutional rights.

            I grew up with mostly conservatives, and none of them were ever racist much less white supremacists.

            They believe their own lies, bottom line. SO they are continually surprised.

        I did not think I had commented earlier. I was going to ask why they needed a Trump supporter shot dead by the police. E Michael Jones (as well as Matthew Johnson) described it as another ‘colour revolution. Talking about these, he has mentioned once or twice that there need to be some deaths (eg in the Maidan Square in Kiev), but I do not really know why this is so.

        I heard an eye witness report of Babbitt’s death and he seemed genuine, although I could be wrong of course. As i recall, he had blood on his hand and said that she had said she was all right before collapsing. In one video you can hear someone who sounded like Sullivan saying, “He’s got a gun! He’s got a gun!” Does anyone know who the young man was who was hammering away at the glass?

        • Yohannon April 23, 2021 at 1:38 pm #

          Watch the bitchute. The glass (if it was) in that panel just came right out in one piece. It wasn’t the same as the other panels that they had been hammering and chipping.

          • Sean Coleman April 24, 2021 at 2:37 pm #

            Yo, I watched half of it. It kept changing shot just when I was trying to focus on what they were pointing out. You think the glass was fake? Perhaps the whole scene was fake, including everyone in the crowd, all the security, the reporters, Trump, Pelosi and the rest of Congress. I will let you into a secret (but please do not breathe a word to anybody): Babbitt, Trump, Nancy and a couple of thousand other people (the REAL ones) are at this very moment living in a tunnel under the Haut de la Garenne children’s home in the island of Jersey, where they are undergoing plastic surgery and assuming new identities. Soon they will emerge and blend in, appearing normal in every way, but they are sleepers waiting for The Call…

      I’m not big on conspiracy theories but there are certainly a number of very puzzling things about the AB shooting. First off, where’s hubby? If my wife had been killed in a such a situation, I’d be on hunger strike and placarded up outside Congress. Also, where are all the testimonials from friends, family, Air Force vets? It’s like it all fell into a black hole.

        I hear so many people say, “I’m not big on conspiracy theories but …” as more tumblers click into place.

        Like Mary said earlier, people can’t admit that they were Wrong. They can … but do so rarely and very reluctantly.

        I remember discussing Fukishima with a pro-nuke. I explained the dire situation there and it’s potential horrific ramifications to the Pacific Ocean.

        “Don’t tell the anti-nukers that!” he says from his Bay Street office.

        “What? That they were Right?” I snapped back.

        His face Just dropped. He had never before even fathomed that the anti-nukes could possibly be Right until that very second.

        Hereward, me neither. They could always dig up her grave and see who is in it. (That would be the equivalent of bringing in the mechanical diggers at the climax of a moral panic, like the McMartin case or Haut de la Garenne in Jersey). It is quite possible that her husband did have a great deal to say but it was not reported. As Matthew Johnson says, the media decides what is real and they can (and reularly do) create black holes for what is not so deemed (eg the insanely high rate of Black crime).

        There is a lot in the news here today in Ireland about the ‘Covid’ crisis in India. My default approach is simply not to believe it unless they can provide persuasive evidence.

        English conspiracy theorist Chris Spivy claimed that British soldier Lee Rigby, who was killed by two black Muslims high on cannabis a few years ago, in broad daylight on a London street (they cut his head off), had not really been killed. I think he argued that it was somebody else.

        The linked video needs to slow down and go into much greater detail.

        The Capitol was definitely a false flag though.

          • Sean Coleman April 24, 2021 at 2:27 pm #

            The climax of a moral panic is that when they bring in the diggers there is nothing to see and everyone gets a bit embarrassed and changes the subject if anyone mentions it. What was in the tunnel? Was it really a tunnel? Why was it there? Or had aliens built it? OR were the Chinese designing a new killer virus in it? Was Adolf Hitler hiding there? Ha? Now the truth is coming out! They don’t want you to know that!

            In Jersey there were supposed to be torture chambers under the Home where young children met hideous deaths. But then the story just fizzled out. Why? I suppose it was so ghastly that they had to cover it up. The newspapers need to get in on this quick. It is going to be BIG!!!!

        • MaryV April 24, 2021 at 11:38 am #

          Other possibilities – if Ashli was/is a CIA asset or crisis actor, most likely her husband would be aware of it. Or, is he even really a ‘husband’? Could they both be CIA actors? Myriad possibilities here.

          Having discovered in the course of 20 years or so just how deep the rabbit holes go for many psyops that were covered up with ‘official versions’ that most believe, who knows? Only the people who orchestrated this. And even as powerful as they are, they did a shit job. Otherwise, we wouldn’t be discussing it.

          So far, none of the major tragedies/events unleashed on us are what the official stories tell us they are. From the moon landing to the Gulf of Tonkin to the OK federal building bombing to 9/11 to the Vegas shooting to the Boston Marathon bombing to Covid19. All have flimsy veneers and fall apart the second one investigates. Problem is, most don’t. So they get away with it over and over.

          • Sean Coleman April 24, 2021 at 1:07 pm #

            It is tricky. I come at this from studying moral panics (in no depth I might add) which has made me sceptical of all ‘conspiracy theories’ (a phrase which can mean different things, of course). This began with the Irish Catholic Church scandal, which Rory Connor of Irish Salem showed to be very largely imaginary. From that I looked at the late Richard Webster’s Sceptical Essays website, the false allegations section. (He died ten years ago, having written a brilliant study of the North Wales Chidren’s Homes abuse witch hunt, and the website was taken down recently, a severe loss.) Then I looked at the witch hunts against well known men, starting with Jimmy Savile, and including Rolf Harris, Sandusky (Penn State), Weinstein, Epstein (yes) and the assault allegations against Trump in late 2016. Also the demonizing of Dr Andrew Wakefield (not a moral panic, of course).

            From that I went on to take in other collective fantasies, as they all share certain characteristics: global warming, health scares, the myth of black victimization (Colin Flaherty), the myth of bogus refugees. This widened into fake news in genearl, as the same characteristics appear there too and it is just another form of the same fantasy.

            The problem is that the ‘Truth Seekers’ in the case of Savile were on the wrong side. They were gullible and swallowed the fantasy of the Pure Evil of these men. The Epstein case showed it all over again. It happens every time. This is why I have no respect for the likes of David Icke and all the others. Icke is credited with having ‘seen through’ Savile years before everyone else. The problem is that he got it all wrong; there is no credible evidence against Jimmy. These fools get in the way of proper thought and are distracting nuisances. My heart sank when I saw that Icke was speaking at the giant rally in London last summer against the ‘Covid’ ‘lockdown’. Things were already bad enough for us without him joining in; it just made it easy for the media to dismiss us.

            Conspiracy theorists just make lazy, spectacular claims with little or no evidence. The fact that they appear almost reasonable compared to our governments and the media just shows how insane the world has become. Practically everything of importance produced by the mainstream media is fantasy.

            I hate them all.

            Other ways collective fantasy has shown itself include evolution, heliocentrism (yes – see Robert Sungennis) and (predictably) the ‘Holocaust’.

            Where there is sensationalism and heightened feelings, where wild, extravagant claims were made (“who would have believed he was like that?”) it is a reliable sign of colective fantasy.

            Historical distortion is a huge area of collective fantasy in itself. I began with the Spanish Civil War. I will pass over this here.

            I came across Matthew Raphael Johnson not that long ago and his research has confirmed what I already knew and opened my eyes to a great deal more I had not even thought of. Just to take China as an example, he has made good arguments for a number of myths: Tianamen Square, Tibet, the Rape of Nanking (early 1930s), the moves to stage a colour revolution in Hong Kong.

            Now, Johnson is sceptical of the moon landings because of what Russian scientists have written about eh Van Allen Belts, that they are so dangerous as to make it impossible to cross beyond them into outer space. I do not believe him and it makes me apply a discount to his other claims. I am open to persuasion. Ditto WTC and JFK’s assassination. I am open to persuasion if anyone can make a decent case and back it up with evidence, but i do not expect this to happen. Same thing with Babbit. But I do believe the Capitol event was a false flag, and that the election was fraudulent.

          • Sean Coleman April 24, 2021 at 2:07 pm #

            “I hate them all.”

            A little bit harsh. I hate the media all the time and the conspiracy theorists only most of it. i have been listening to a good few of their videos over the last few days and they often appear quite lucid but then go off the deep end. It is exhausitng.

          • Sean Coleman April 24, 2021 at 2:19 pm #

            You are right about the ‘flimsy veneers’ though. This was obvious to me from the very start. You barely have to dig at all. I think of it as a body buried under a quarter of an inch of sand. I have been learning a little bit about the Piltdown Man hoax, where in 1912 it was claimed that the missing link had been found. The skull was examined in 1953 and it turned out that the had joined a human cranium to the jaw of an orang utan. And it was done clumsily, yet for forty years Piltdown Man was shown in all the university papers and the school books. Here again (just as with ‘Covid’) the question is how much was deliberate. Certainly those in on the hoax were deliberately lying but the argument is over whether Charles Dawson or whether a number of other experts joined him. But it also seems that so many people wanted to be deceived and for this reason no awkward questions were asked. Then there was ‘Nebraska Man’, where a single excavated tooth led them to conculed that it was an example of early Homo Erectus (complete with detailed artists’ drawings of the man and his wife). It turned out, five years later, to be from a wild pig. I am thinking just now of the artist’s impressions of the mythical ‘covid’ virus.

          • MaryV April 24, 2021 at 8:20 pm #

            You really should treat yourself to David McGowan’s series, and then get back to me.

            Saville was outed as a pedophile because he was, sorry to burst your bubble. Posthumously they were finally allowed to out him. Sadly they let him do what he wanted while alive, because of his connections and power. Many lives were ruined by him and police gave him cover.

            Yes, there is no way in hell we had (or have) the technology to land a man on the moon. Not only the Van Allen radiation but the temperatures, and where was the gas tank on that little raft to hold enough fuel for a 248K mile trek?

            That’s just the tip of the iceberg. NASA also reports that oops, they ‘lost’ the technology to go there. All of it.

            Looks like you haven’t gone far enough down rabbit holes and have made the mistake of listening to the protectors of the establishment rather than the people who have done the research to expose these crimes against humanity.

          • MaryV April 24, 2021 at 8:23 pm #

            Also, if you learn anything at all about our intel agencies, and their ‘programs,’ which they don’t try to hide, you will probably get more of an idea of their patterns and behaviors.

            I suggest H.P. Albarelli’s book, “A Terrible Mistake”.

            Also, David McGowan’s series. Hell, even if you don’t believe him, he’s funny as hell, and they are entertaining whether you ‘buy in’ or not:

          • Sean Coleman April 25, 2021 at 10:41 am #

            Mary, I will take a look at your links.

            9-11. I have been looking at this a little bit. First Swiss left-winger (I think) Daniele Ganser and now Kevin Barrett of Interesting Times. I am listening to this video of his as I write: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQ26tSUmFHM&list=PL7tFc-S5M6b9-d6_OU2CDgCINNiEvlAdc&index=3

            Barrett was (still is?) a university professor and put his reputation on the line, so I am most interested in hearing what he has to say. (In an interview with, among others, Kevin McDonald he expressed scepticism of the argument that the Dems stole the election, so he has an independent mind.)

            Savile. Look at Moor Larkin’s blog, starting from the very start. The Savile legiend is the official narrative. It seems to ahve begun a few years before Jimmy’s death when former inmates of Duncroft School (a progressive school to reform intelligent but troubled or criminal teenage girls) let their imaginations run riot on a Friends Reunitedy-style blog. Once Savile was dead everyone could say what they liked about him without fear of consequence. I have spent a great deal of time looking into it and none of the cliams stand up; the vast majority are ridiculous. There are an enormous number of liars in the world. The thing about habitual liars is that they do it so naturally and can be superficially convincing, but they do it very badly in that they cannot cover up their tracks, and often do not even try to.

            Moon Landing. As I recall, Matt Johnson mentioned a kind of death-bed admission by Stanley Kubrik that he had faked film footage of the landing. This is flmsy, to say the least. As I said, Johnson is excellent, and along with E Michael Jones (probably even more so) quite possible the best you can find. But this forces me to apply a discount, however small, to his other claims.

            I have always been contrary and remember arguing with a first cousin visiting from Chicago when I was about 16 (that would have been 1974) about Nixon. I thought he was being treated unfarily. Johnson brackets him with Trump and (I htink) Carter to an extent as outsiders who were a threat to the ruling class.

            Having said that, by nature I am on the gullible side so I have to be watchful not to be taken in by anyone.

    NYPD still need to make a few arrests specially in the most egregious cases; I’m reading that each and every arrest in the city, no matter how justified, is leading to a personal lawsuit of the officer making the arrest.

    Al Shapton calls Dante Wright a Noble Prince among men, but just a few months ago this noble prince robbed a woman of her rent money –$850 — on the streets of Minneapolis, holding her at gunpoint, and choking her out with his free hand.

    The social contract is cancelled but it looks like the lead discussion is keeping conversations civil. I think that is basically the core of the problem in a seed form. Perhaps quite uncivil resistance to the “long march through the institutions” could have saved the country. But many highly intelligent, decent, and more traditionally leaning people appear to still believe that if we can just be civil with one another that eventually everyone can be educated and lifted to a higher level. However, that is exactly what the last several years and decades have shown us exactly does not and never happens. Behaving civilly does not really achieve anything when sociopaths and psychopaths simply make end runs around all social, cultural, and political norms to gain absolute power. And comically enough, or maybe not so funny at all, these same people are often the ones lecturing about behavior and verbalizations. The problem with the 87% is that half of them support to varying degrees the cultural bolshevism implemented by the corporate anarchists. And a majority portion of the other half either don’t realize that the situation on the ground has shifted permanently from anything they consider “normal” or are unwilling to do anything to actually stop the trajectory we are on. Sadly it has been that way for a long time and the Elite know that and that is why they are winning.

    • MaryV April 23, 2021 at 11:32 am #

      Well said.

      It’s time we were uncivil. Not to each other, but to the scumbag psychopathic Mighty Wurlitzer cabal.

      As many up here are fond of saying, nature dictates that we kill or be killed at some juncture, when things break down.

      That time is quickly approaching.

      • SoftStarLight April 23, 2021 at 12:04 pm #

        And if uncivil is such an odious option for one then perhaps look at it as a spiritual duty to defend one’s family, friends and nation. But that is just it. Many do not even perceive the US to be a real nation even if they have never really pondered it. So most are not going to be willing to defend a suggestion or whimsical notion. Because we live in a corporation (think Umbrella) we have all been slowly but surely atomized, deculturalized and deracinated and many don’t even perceive it.

          agree. think we live in the age of identity politics because every population in the USA…all the races n creeds… actually have NO viable identity right now, or little.
          The identity vacuums will be filled. Those who create the most viable, reality-based, forward-thinking identities for themselves will be more successful down the line.
          But in the climate of identity-lessness, inertia is powerful. Not convinced the US can’t keep coasting on inertia for a good while longer, waiting for a real sit-hit-fan moment when a circumstantial demand for actual strong identity absolutely can’t be postponed any longer.

        Indeed. White identity politics is likely to go mainstream if this crass, undisguised, overt, anti-white racist campaign of wokesterism continues to advance. Tucker Carlson has predicted that whites will be radicalized as such if current trends continue and I think that is a spot-on assessment. The Left is prosecuting a race war, but only non-whites and a few deluded self-hating whites are currently engaged. This will likely change if the present hysteria about phantom “White Supremacy” continues.

          Wizard. We need to take a leaf out of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. Make THEM live up to their beliefs. For example, a father recently took his kid out of a posh private school, accusing them of racism because they’d gone in for all the CRT and white “privilege” garbage. In other words, he read out to them their own rules and showed them how racist they were being. We need to start calling these people what they are: racists of the worst type.

      People can speak soothing words. But then other people can speak unsoothing words. William Seward in 1858 called the dispute between North & South an “irrepressible conflict”. Kind of like a container with a defective safety valve slowly building steam pressure until it explodes. In the Age of Steam, everyone understood the reference. He was proven right. Did his words enflame? Sure. In the end, did his words matter? Not really. Two fundamentally different visions at-their-root of how the country should operate being continually fueled by greater & greater outrages cannot be safely contained within the vessel of the Union.

        We’re in a pincer movement: Fascists beat down the people from above while Communists inhabiting the “streets” attack from below. All stops are out: America must be utterly destroyed if World Government is to be established.

        It’s not that there are too few sufficiently obsequious Whites; the race distraction is just a tool, like a wedge or a pry bar. If it wasn’t race it would be gender (and it’s that, too), or class, or shoe size, or belly-button orientation.

        Each Totalitarian faction believes they are in control and will take that final prize. My money is on the Fascists, simply because Communists have proven themselves to being utterly incompetent at running an economy. No one likes a Fascist either, but at least the trains run on time if you don’t mind a full cavity search every time before boarding.

        The beauty of this approach is that both Fascism and Communism are so nearly identically demonizing and repressive that it is quite easy to switch sides as long as one isn’t wholly wedded to the specific ideology – lust for unrestricted, centralized power over one’s fellow man is all that is required.

        O.G. I imagine you’re talking big underground facilities for the Elite. Lest anybody call us “conspiracy theorists” there is no doubt such places exist, constructed since 1945 with a view to WW3. The question is the size and capacity of all these DUMBS put together.

        But I once read about one consultant to rich people with private, personal doomsday bunkers. He said their biggest concern was ensuring the loyalty of their security staff. In Mad Max world what’s to keep security from offing the boss & his family and enjoying all that was his?

        One rich guy thought he would keep all the food in a vault to which he alone knew the combination.I wondered how long could he keep that info secret under torture.

          Yes, I am referring to exactly that, hmuller. TPTB have built incredible infrastructure under the USA.

          The $2,200,000,000,000 that Donald Rumsfeld announced MIA at the Pentagon on Monday, September 10, 2001 is an example of how it was financed.

    Here’s a mind-bending closing quote from an Op-Ed in the Thursday, 4/22 edition of The St. Augustine Record:

    “Until it is instilled in police that their first loyalty is to the George Floyds of the world, there will be no winners for the conviction of Derek Chauvin.”

    So, our law enforcement personnel’s first loyalty should be to criminals during their commission of criminal acts – JFC!

    For some perspective, the paper’s positions represent the blue cancer-ridden trendy enclave, town proper, with about 15K of the 260K heavily conservative county residents.

    Their Chief of Police, making $120K/year, recently retired and took a position with city Code Enforcement for $50K/year. By a show of hands, who can guess why?

    • SW April 23, 2021 at 12:36 pm #

      “the paper’s positions represent the blue cancer-ridden trendy enclave,”

      I have a friend who lives in one of these enclaves and they have the luxury of dewy-eyed liberalism as there are no brushes with criminals nor are there likely to be. I find it ironic this is where they chose to live — in part — b/c of safety. Who do they wish to keep out? Fundamentalist Republican Christians? Probably not since they’re the plumbers, electricians and handymen who keep the place functioning.

      There was a story about 2 months ago about some B-list singer in Beverly Hills who thought she heard gunshots, called the police immediately but it turned out to be a car back-firing. Only days before she had tweeted to Defund the Police.

    Fear not, friends. A race of higher beings all made of pure light are coming to Earth. (They’ve been busy visiting countless other races in our galaxy who are sunk in the mire of darkness like us, hence their delay.) Once they arrive they will open our collective inner eye and enable us finally to realize and hence to leave behind the folly of our present way of life. This will release vast reserves of spiritual energy hitherto locked away deep within our inner being, and the energy will bring about a great cleansing and healing on this planet. All will be restored to the original condition in which it was meant to exist: as an expression, a manifestation, a vessel of the Light of Pure Spirit. All the terrible things we face today will fade away like a bad dream; love and peace will finally prevail. Om Shanthi.

      “Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries.”

      When pulled into a conversation about the injustice of George Floyd’s death, I listen to them. It’s always a tragedy when a fellow human being throws their life away “in shallows and in miseries” as he did. That it ended on a street in Minneapolis after the police were called was predictable — one crime too many, one police encounter too many, one speedball (fentanyl and meth) too many and it caught up with him.

      Now, if you want to declare Gates, Bezos and the rest as such we can not do anything about it, but still have a need to voice what we think. That voice is by no means “bringing left ideas” (remember we left the old country because of it and somehow associate it with sentimental stale stench of naphthalene), but rather a expressing the puzzlement that you basically admit the defeat and “solid as a rock” system “somehow” allowed “commie/soc” to pry open it? Is that the case?
      Imagine revolutionary in the train from the “Doc Zivago” clutching his rifle and dreaming: “I have this great idea and one day when this is over I will start my own business” or someone in NK thinking that excessive need for the medals in the country is the “market need” that needs to be fulfilled and in both cases they ended up to be a huge success?

Vladimir Putin mentioned it in a speech, and there have been articles in the alternative media (The Duran and Zero Hedge have mentioned it, and some international networks such as RT, teleSur etc.)…but mainstream news? Totally silent.
    This is not some “crazy conspiracy theory”, the request (pictured above) is publicly available on US government websites.
    The lack of coverage of this issue in the MSM, while predictable, still serves to highlight how little objectivity our notionally free press really have. Can you imagine the headlines if Russia, China or Iran’s military had started doing research on British or American DNA samples?
    The hysteria would be deafening.

    Yes, absolutely, Jim, the Chauvin trial was a disgrace, a Stalinist show trial (minus the forced confession), which had very little to do with civilized process of justice. It was not just the jurors who were intimidated by the mob, btw. Some of the police and medical prosecution witnesses were visibly hedging in their answers, lest they be fingered as the ones responsible for acquittal and have their houses torched. The only issue was whether Chauvin applied reasonable, and necessary amount of force; at worst, he should have been convicted of involuntary manslaughter. There was no evidence TMK, that he intended to kill or was aware Floyd was in mortal danger by his action, which needed to proven for his act to be murder. We will learn during sentencing if the trial judge was intimidated too.
    Where I don’t agree is that we are at a peak of the woke nonsense. Nowhere near, I would say. It’s a perfect expedient combining stealth and distraction for the ruling elites. The only antidote to it would be a popular competing political platform (way more popular than Trump’s) one that is focused on the middle but fair to everyone. Only a strong new political paradigm could jolt the US out of the gutter it is in. But there isn’t a platform of this sort with a respected leader to animate it and I don’t see one coming in the distance. Both parties remain deeply committed to one-party dominance in the country. The Dems are winning. They will ratchet up the Kulturkampf, I have no doubt.

    “…The remaining 87 percent of the folks who live in the USA have so far failed to identify these operations for what they are, an epic hustle.” Situate this statement in the following conttext – “Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state.” I draw the conclusion that 90 percent of these 87 percent never had a chance.

        Are you a strawman?

Race-relations – the Conflict, its Control, and its Resolution is DEFINITELY NOT the intent I am seeing on CNN or on the Police Web news.

Anyone think he was referring to some other demographic? The Black “hustlers” & the rest of us, the hustled. His words, not mine. You see we really are all racists behind the mask.

    There is a forecast by the Deagel.com site that appears to predict that the U.S. population by 2025 will be only 99.5 million. If that were to occur, query whether the 87%/13% Black/White ratio would continue. The Deagel forecast is discussed at https://www.lewrockwell.com/2021/04/doug-casey/shocking-2025-deagel-forecast-war-population-reduction-and-the-collapse-of-the-west/

      I’ve read the deagel report before and have now seen their updated post in which they talk about Covid and the response. I guess what I want to know is just who are these guys and why should we take them seriously? They definitely have some animus toward the developed western countries. To some extent I get it as they observe that the most highly developed countries are those most dependent on technology with a population used to living “the good life’. Thus the US, Western Europe, Canada, Israel etc all predicted to lose shocking amount of its population due to I gather starvation, suicide, conflict, emigration and other impacts.

      It’s interesting as China does well as does Russia, many other Asian countries, central and south America, much of Africa. Even basket case countries like Haiti, Lebanon and Syria are posited as doing fine. Hard to imagine Venezuela doing just great. Or Brazil. Mexico. So do these guys actually have solid info or do they just despise the west and it’s wishful thinking on their part?

      • MaryV April 24, 2021 at 12:33 pm #

        Good questions. Maybe they know about some sort of ‘schedule’.

        I have a friend on FB who claims to have some good insider knowledge as he is a gay man who had close gay friends in the intel community… and he says he was told about all that is happening now in 2013 by this man, including the plandemic. Who knows? If it is all planned out, then plenty of people know what will happen. Maybe that includes the deagle people. They claim to be military insiders, right?

        In any case, there are a lot of possible reasons for our population to tank. But those reasons seem to be the same all over the western world – mostly forced vaccing and the continued lockdown/masking/etc bullshit. Already has claimed many lives and they are just getting started, from what I have learned. We are in the stage where they psychologically and physically wear us down and make us hopeless. So we’ll do anything they say going forward.

    I agree with Soloview that at most, there should have been an involuntary manslaughter charge, and that even was probably too harsh and could be appealed. But the murder convictions especially, are beyond the pale. Never have I seen a more unfair, predetermined, prejudicial, cya trial. The moment the unrest continued past 2 evenings, Chauvin was screwed. I’d hate to be the other officers awaiting trial.

    I will say that Chauvin should have let up on Floyd, but that was a judgment call in the heat of the moment, and who’s to say most of us would have done it differently? IMO it was not a crime. At worst, In a fair world, Chauvin should have been reprimanded for poor judgment.

    This entire incident reminds me of 19th and early 20th century lynchings. The only true, accurate verdict would be as a result of reading his mind and learning if he had Black hatred in his heart, and intended to harm Floyd.

    And George Floyd, a 5 time convicted felon and drug addict, treated like he’s the Second Coming.

    • beantownbill. April 23, 2021 at 4:16 pm #

      Marlin, I do think an appeal is worthwhile, if only for the sake of justice (Lady Justice is supposed to be blind, so she can’t see a person’s skin color). It really bothers me that Chauvin is spending his entire or nearly entire, life in jail. To top it all off, Floyd being hailed as a saint is outrageous, unjust, inaccurate and disgusting. Same can be said of most of the recent spate of Black deaths by the police. These people were not heroes.

      A 16 year old girl about to stab another girl, plus maybe a few others? A 20 year old wanted man running from the police? Their deaths were their own responsibility. Sure, they were tragedies, but extremely poor judgment is not a survival trait. I’m not saying every Black shooting by police in the past was justified, but these recent ones sure were.

      I’m sure they will also charge and convict the cop who shot the guy by accident instead of using her taser.

If the violence just stayed there I’d be fine with it. You get what you ask for………

    Ever since reading the first JHK World Made by Hand book, I have said, in this forum and in conversations with colleagues, that the ‘WMH’ world will be hard, but far more tolerable and safe than the world in between then and now. We are now early in the BETWEEN, on our eventual way to world made by hand and its’ economic simplicity and community. IMO, that’s a major point of JHK’s above commentary this friday.

    As we more forward in the BETWEEN, in addition to a food and water source you control, you better have firearms, ammunition, and know how to use them; as well as having the will, and balls, to kill your assailants. Otherwise, you may as well give your possessions, wives and daughters to the savages and give yourself up to be enslaved or eaten.

    Don’t live in a city/state that allows self defense? Several choices: move now, more latter if possible, learn to use kitchen utensils as weapons, learn to shoot a bow and arrow if your masters allow such, or take a lethal dose of a high potency opioid and go to sleep…forever.

I want to register that not everyone believes the shit sandwiches he is serving. The latest is that no accelerated math classes will be offered in public schools until the 12th grade. No algebra, no algebra II, no geometry…WTF? They want to make sure everyone passes the same dumbed down math classes. Everyone has to be equally ignorant, despite your talents. . If I was a minority, I would be pissed. It’s like saying because you’re a minority, we have to make it so easy that even you can pass. How insulting.

    Re the new greenhouse gas proposal by unaware president Biden:

    First and foremost, the US is responsible for only about 15-20 percent of total annual world emissions. I tried to pin down an accurate percentage, but I found it very difficult to get anything but a general percentage. If true, this percentage means even if the US eliminates all its emissions (an impossibility), more than four fifths of the total annual output would remain. How effective would that be, without world-wide cooperation?

    Biden wants a 50% reduction by 2030. This is a ridiculously ineffective proposal because even if that goal is reached, it would result in only a 7.5-10% world reduction. And the cost to America would mean the sacrifice of our economy. And in 2030, a new group of politicians would be in power, so the odds of following Biden’s original plan are slim.

    The MSM media doesn’t push the idea that a first step is to get a global consensus. This whole idea is a scam.

    The only effective proposal would be to institute a reality-based program of viable energy alternatives, like small nuclear reactors, with heavy research into LTSR reactors. Wind and solar, not real dependable, could probably account for 15-20% of our energy requirements, but not more, otherwise we will ruin our environment.

    With an alternative energy research program, we could proceed with more speculative alternatives as well, like fusion reactors (I know we’ve been trying for at least 50:years, but that’s the most common energy production in the universe), and solar-power satellites.

    The most important aspect of all this is to adopt a realistic, non-political
    attitude for our energy issues. Of course, this is probably too much to expect, but we ought to try.

    BTW, the real issue is overpopulation. We have way too many people. We can’t stop reproduction, so something is going to give sometime this century.

      All those experts and scientists do not have a clue. All the Bill Gates in the world are messing with fire.

      Here is a specific example. 9/11 proved that the world surface temperature increased during the period of time the planes were not flying. The nascent clouds in the stratosphere did not form and the particulates did not scatter sunshine. Further work agrees that clouds, part of which are smog decrease GW. Oops.

      Even Gates wants to scatter seltzers in the atmosphere to block the sun.

      So reducing pollution increases warming. Hmmm?

      My point is, we know so little about what is happening with our climate that no one should be allowed to mess with it.

      My favorite is heat islands. The bigger the cities grow and the farther north and south they increase in size and numbers the warmer the ambient temp is around the world. Result. Melting icecaps, glaciers, permanent frost, everything we observe to support AGW. GA, how many more folks in Scotland, or the Shetlands over the past fifty years. Each one produces heat and when cities form, heat islands.

      We do not have a clue.

    look at any documentary profiling the lifes of those who live on the streets

    Officer Chauvin was sacrificed alright, but not on the altar of George Floyd

    seems there is quite a lot of silence where often is heard calls for privatization. privatize everything under the sun, a market solution – economy of scale, efficient allocation of capital, structured management systems with reduced labor costs and maximazation of profit and return of investment

    • tucsonspur April 23, 2021 at 6:49 pm #

      ‘might I propose that law enforcement is the main driver behind defunding law enforcement.’

      I can’t buy into that. You seem to be saying that law enforcement is responsible for the large amount of damaging drugs. There has always been some complicity between drug traffickers and the law, but I don’t believe they form anything near a major business merger.

      Yes, major crimes because of drugs resulting in police shootings, resulting in calls for defunding, but blaming the cops doesn’t make sense.

      ‘the quantitiy of drugs available for intravenous injection is staggering

      gives a tarnished view to Protect and Serve’

        We both live in a state that will be a leader of the influx of drugs with the continuation of the Biden lack of border program.

        I contend that drugs are a major part of the economy of the US. The reason the government does nothing about it is that they are complicit. What do you think is the source of liquidity that is keeping the world wide financial system going?

        Look South. The cartels with their sponsors the Chinese, will own and control what is now the US. Do you thing it might be revenge for the opium wars?

        I wonder what that 19 years in Afghanistan was all about anyway.

    • JohnAZ April 23, 2021 at 10:16 pm #

      Exactly. Who supplied the drugs that the cartels shove through the border.

      Fentanyl from China is proven. How many others are heading our way.

      Point is, it is a world wide problem bobbing on a sea of geopolitics.

      • tucsonspur April 24, 2021 at 5:39 am #

        I’m really not up to date on the latest in narconomics, but I remember that the Mexican cartels were actually growing marijuana here at one time, and elsewhere of course, and I thought that most of their drugs came from South America, places like Colombia. Things change, I guess.

        I can see the Chinese working with the cartels, but they supposedly halted the sale and export of fentanyl related drugs, with certain exceptions, back in 2019. No, I don’t trust them.

        I think that the source of liquidity is the Fed continuing to create dollars. Please, say it isn’t so, that the dollar is backed by cocaine.

        Could a major drug enterprise involving US government officials remain secret for so long? What about dime droppers, sellouts, backstabbers and such?

        Well, these days anything is possible I guess.

      • Mountain gal April 25, 2021 at 5:45 am #

        The known information should have been provided with suggestions on how to protect oneself if you were vulnerable. Then people could have made a decision to do so. Obviously, those in care homes and the like were unable to make that decision and it needed to be made for them. Then pretty much let it rip and go through the rest of society much like the flu. We’d already be done with it. Any vaxes should only be offered to those at high risk.

      I knew him a little, he lived in our town. His dad had a tree business. It was a good family. Bruce was ahead of me in HS and I actually gained a little local notoriety when I broke a few of his school track records at a field day we’d have every spring.

      Jenner was just a nice guy, and were all proud of him when he won those medals in the 76 Olympics. I don’t know what the hell happened that he ended up like he did.

            Ha! I was not too bad at football (linebacker) and hockey (Left Wing) but was awful at track & field. “Elephant Feet” a baseball coach once nicknamed me back when that would not yet destroy his life for the horrific child abuse.

            Obviously I’m irrelevant though.

            I legitimately ask the question, though. In today’s Politically Correct Wokesters Jizzfest, is it ok to say:

            He won the gold medal in Men’s Decathlon at Montreal’s 1976 Olympic Games?

            I genuinely do not know.

    A question was asked, “How did a madman in Afghanistan orchestrate 9/11.

    Because the goons who got the planes spent a year getting themselves trained on those big planes, how to fly them not how to land them.

    The internet gave a perfect base to communicate any instructions to the bad boys. You know how folks today think that our grid is in danger from foreign hackers?

    How did these guys get into the US? Liberal bullshit immigration Laws.

    How did they get into flying schools, ask the FAA?

    Want proof of their intent, listen to the transcripts of flight 93.

    Is our government complicit or just plane stupid. Here is a hint, nothing has changed. Both! You know who knew this fact.

    It’s like something out of “Brave New World” in which the insouciant people are all drugged out on “Soma”? We are witnessing this bizarre spectacle of people injecting themselves repeatedly with an experimental vaccine substance that can foreseeably cause dementia as a trivial decision so that they can go to the pub or on holiday. Meanwhile, there seem to be people who find meaning in Life by “Saving the World” by forcing kids and babies to get the Jab? I thought that it would come to a head with an oil/ resource shortage or a financial crisis-induced big war. But it looks like we’ll go out via a Covid lockdown-induced National “Woke” mental breakdown? What’s really crazy is that people refuse to recognize facts.

      The University of San Diego is requiring students to be vaccinated if they wish to live on campus or attend classes non-virtually this fall. Apparently 33 other public universities in California are also requiring covid vaccination and this is happening in other states too. I also read that a hospital in Houston is requiring staff to be vaccinated or they will be terminated. And they acknowledge that you might be worried about it since its all a big experiment but the general attitude is oh well you have to take it anyway.

          Yes it is all part of His plan. It’s actually amazing in a way to see it happening. It is hard to believe so many people are so willingly accepting this which ultimately does appear like it is going to be the mark but yet here we are. I guess though I shouldn’t be too surprised since it is all part of the unfolding story or His story.

    Ongoing 2020 election drama in Maricopa County AZ. Even if massive fraud is found what would follow from that given that the entire system is riddled with fraud at this point? And then the corporate censorship and their total distraction/disinformation campaigns. But undeniable massive proof has a possibility to disrupt some of the currents I would think, hope.

      But undeniable massive proof has a possibility to disrupt some of the currents I would think, hope.

      Yeah well… have you seen some of the cowboy outfits that the Republican Senate has “employed” to undertake the alleged audit. Cyber Ninjas from Florida – FFS – owned and run by pro-Trump far-out conspiracy nutters.

      Are the Republicans going to spend the rest of their lives bitter about the loss to Biden – and engage hyper-partisan Trump backers to carry out a totally unnecessary audit? They aren’t even trying to disguise their cynical ploy – it’s hard to make this stuff up indeed.

      I have never said the election is squeaky clean (although I believe it is) – but this is absolutely no way to try and prove … something. The public are simply not this dumb – not even in Arizona’s sun.

      • SoftStarLight April 24, 2021 at 5:02 am #

        Oh Tek you just can’t help yourself. It’s high time you put your money where your mouth is. If you believe the election was squeaky clean then it is already past time for you to speak it. You must verbalize it. You must embrace it. Or. If not, then you may not believe what you think you believe. I’m not sure what Republicans will do or won’t do. In that regard I have always had lowered expectations. But I myself am not bitter. I also happily embrace civil discussions and polite behavior. I won’t allow myself to be arrogated by such unworthy jackals. Either way I would think its time you do the same. And as a first step I think it would be good for you to really say what you really believe.

        • Tekapo April 24, 2021 at 5:13 am #

          Oh Tek you just can’t help yourself.

          Oh SSL, neither can you, and a nice try.

          I see you are totally avoiding the main issue – the totally corrupt (or Trump-crazy) Arizona Senate is “employing” completely corrupt Trumpists such as Cyber Ninjas (can you believe such a name?) to carry out a completely bogus “audit” – up to and including issuing staff with pens that can alter historical votes.

          That is what you should be addressing – not my views about the election, which in the scale of things don’t amount to a hill of beans.

          And let us not forget, there has not been a single court in the whole land, from dogcatcher tribunal in suburban Flint or Milwaukee through the the US Supremes, who have said there was any credible evidence of fraud.

          There is a very good reason for that. I’ll leave it to you to guess what that might be.

          • JohnAZ April 24, 2021 at 8:53 am #

            Yeah, Tekapo, not a single court, not a single judge would even look at the data. Sort of scares me that thousands of signed affidavits by people under threat of perjury would not have been reviewed , not one. The unanimity of this reaction is a tip off of how full of fraud the election was.

            This country’s political machinery is so afraid of the power of the Deep State Uniparty that it is frozen. The judiciary does not work. Yesterday an alternate juror in the Chauvin case stated the entire jury panel was intimidated so badly that the guilty verdicts were a given.

            Your lovely Liberal side of this country is nothing but a bunch of bullies destroying the fabric of America.

          • SoftStarLight April 24, 2021 at 1:38 pm #

            Can you link that info about the ballot changing pens, etc? I would be interested to see it. Well my opinion about the matter does not amount to a hill of beans either. But if you want me to address it I guess I would say that the audit does not bother me at all and it should happen. The election was clearly irregular in many areas with lots of violations. But the entire system is filled with routine violations of law. Like all the poll observers kicked out of the counting centers and the windows being covered by pizza boxes. Or the suspicious secretive count of ballots brought in by trucks at 3 am for weeks after Nov 3 as just a tiny few examples. So no. Let the audit proceed.

          • Tekapo April 24, 2021 at 4:05 pm #

            Can you link that info about the ballot changing pens, etc? I would be interested to see it.

            If you just search on “Cyber Ninjas blue ink” there are a lot of links to mainstream sources, especially in Arizona.

            There is no valid reason to have an audit at all. The Arizona ballots have been re-counted twice, including a hand-count – and everything checked out.

            What is blatant, egregious, and criminal coming from these crazed AZ Republicans are the outfits they have engaged to do the “audit” – they are biased, conservative-right election conspirators.

            Can the Republican Senate in Phoenix be so dumb? Even if, as you would expect. these “auditors” return an adverse report, nobody who matters is going to believe or accept a report from such obvious Trump hyper-partisans.

            And they are apparently totally incompetent. And they have refused to allow any media in to watch the process other than OANN and Newsmax – you really can’t make this up.

            It is all so ludicrous. What is in the water down there, JAZ?

            Yeah well … we disagree. I still hold the view that the “Uniparty Deep State” – all those mysterious actors and agents in the dark shadows, work in the interests of big capital, big banking, big military, big business, and their Republican representatives.

            The Deep State is not a friend of the Democrats and liberals, and never has been. Do you remember Joseph McCarthy, J Edgar Hoover, Kent State?

            I share the urgent question JHK raises – how long (and why) are the 87% going to tolerate the social chaos being generated by a small slice of the 13% Black community?

            I’ve stayed in Portland Oregon – it was a beautiful place – what does it say about a society when you see it destroyed and laid waste? Can’t see how you can blame liberals for it.
