You’d think that Robert Mueller might know what any licensed attorney-at-law in the land tells a client in a tight spot with a lame alibi: better keep you mouth shut. Instead, Mr. Mueller crept Sphinx-like out of the Deep State woodwork on little cat’s paws and in a brief nine minutes blabbed out a set of whopperish riddles much more likely to get himself in trouble than the target of his hinky inquisition.

The key whopper was that he could not make “a determination” on an obstruction-of-justice charge against Mr. Trump because guidance policy from the DOJ’s Office of Legal Counsel had said some years ago that a sitting president can’t be indicted. That is not what he told his boss, Mr. Barr, the Attorney General (and a roomful of the AG’s staffers who heard it), in person when he delivered his final report a few weeks ago.

Upon receipt of that report, Mr. Barr asked the Special Counsel three times whether his inability to conclude anything on an obstruction charge was due to the OLC guidance, and three times Mr. Mueller answered “no.” Mr. Barr relayed this on-the-record in testimony before the House Judiciary Committee and, as averred above, he has plenty of witnesses. It should not be hard to reach a determination on who is telling truth here.

In fact, Mr. Mueller could have declared that he found chargeable obstruction crimes were committed based on the evidence, and also demurred to press them at this time — leaving them available to federal prosecutors until after the president was out of office, one way or another. The reason he didn’t is that Mr. Mueller does not want the case to come to trial, ever, because he would lose badly and his reputation would be destroyed. Consider that in any trial, the defendant gets to call witnesses and make his own case. The evidence for gross prosecutorial misconduct on the part of Mr. Mueller and his associates is mountainous compared to the molehill of Mr. Trump’s temper tantrums over the seditious hoax he was subject to. And that matter is now moving in the direction of adjudication.

So instead, Mr. Mueller has set in motion a potential political crisis as momentous as the Civil War, but completely unlike it. Knowing that congress can impeach the president on just about anything — especially this president, publicly reviled like no other before him — he served congress the platter of material to use in the form of his final report, and pretty much dared them to not go forward with it. Get this: it is a ruse. The object is solely to divert the nation’s attention with an impeachment circus, allowing Mr. Mueller to slip away harmlessly into history without sacrificing his own reputation in a courtroom.

Do you have any idea what a fiasco this set-up is? I will tell you. The US government itself will be discredited and crippled. At one end of Pennsylvania Avenue, you’ll have the impeachment circus in which the misdeeds of the RussiaGate perpetrators will be revealed in all their naked political indecency; and at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue you’ll have many of the same government officials involved in all that indecency marched into courtrooms to be tried by Mr. Barr’s prosecutors on charges possibly as grave as treason. On the sidelines, you will see something like a fight to the death between the White House and the rogue leviathan that the nation’s “intel community” has grown into — like the ghastly, slime-dripping creature that stowed away on the spaceship Nostromo in the horror movie Alien.

In his farewell performance, Mr. Mueller declared that he considers himself unavailable to testify before congress in whatever proceedings they convene going forward. That’s rich. If you take him at his word, he said that if called, he would simply refer to his 448-page report, where all the mysteries of existence may be found — like the Old Testament Yahweh laying his Good Book on the table before the cringing multitudes. It will surely come as a surprise to Mr. Mueller that he is actually not Yahweh with such supreme powers, but a mere mortal who has fucked up mightily in the service of an earthly political conspiracy. In the event, he may find himself citing not his fabulous RussiaGate report, but the Fifth Amendment to the constitution.

That’s what we have to look forward to in the months leading up to the 2020 election, if it can even take place during what may be an epic paralysis of government verging on sickening collapse.

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Lawyers are scumbags. I have yet to meet one or know of one who is worthy of my respect. They are the worst of civilization. They’re even worse than pedophiles, and that’s pretty fucking bad. Why are they worse than pedophiles? Because lawyers have the ability to do much more damage than pedophiles. Pedophiles can only damage one victim at a time as horrible and heinous as that is, but lawyers, especially government and corporate lawyers, can ruin millions, nay tens of millions and perhaps even hundreds of millions, of lives with their diabolical “legal” machinations.

    I have no faith whatsoever that justice will come from Rod Rosenstein’s appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel. The following Politico article validates my assertion. It didn’t inform my assertion, it validated it.

    Lawyers suck. Shakespeare’s Dick the Butcher had it right — what he said is as relevant today as it was centuries ago. They are evil incarnate. If you believe Mueller can be independent & objective in this endeavor, you are a fool and I have some swampland to sell you in the Arizona desert. No lawyer is independent and objective, especially Robert Mueller despite the lamestream media’s admiration for him and his “stellar, impeccable credentials.” Prove me wrong. I want to be wrong, but I know I’m not.

    Mueller’s Law Firm’s Clients Could Cause ‘Wrinkle’ In Appointment

    Robert Mueller, appointed FBI Director by George W. Bush and serving in that capacity for thirteen years making him one of the longest-tenired Directors next to Hoover, was the genius behind turning the FBI into a highly contrived, and illegal in my opinion, “counterterrorism” unit that creates terrorist plots out of thin air and recruits unwitting, basically retarded Americans to engage in terrorist acts. Do you trust this ass to find justice in regard to collusion between Trump andRussia? If you do, you’re an IDIOT!!! He has been appointed for containment purposes only. He will drag this out for many years to the point most people will forget about it and not care any longer. This ass works for he plutocracy of which Trump is a member of that club. The containment crew is being called in to mitigate the spectacle and contain any damage that threatens the status quo. Mueller’s a member in good dtanding of the plutocracy. He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth while Trump was born with a gold spoon up his ass. Mueller, as well as Trump, have nothing but disdain for the unwashed. Wake up, people!! The foxes are guarding the hen house and I have some news for you, Trump is not a hen. You are. Trump’s a pussy-grabbing fox.

    Here’s an article from Rolling Stone about the FBI’s new mission set in motion by George W. Bush and the then FBI Director, Robert Mueller. What a bunch of sick, twisted, sadistic bully boys. These people are about as anti-democratic as one can be. They rival Putin’s Russia in their mendacity. And we’re to believe they will be independent and objective and transparent about the influence Putin’s Russia has in American politics? Give me a break. Get the fuck out of here. How stupid do you think people are? Nevermind, you’re right, they’re pretty fucking stupid.

    How FBI Entrapment Is Inventing ‘Terrorists’ – and Letting Bad Guys Off the Hook

    • 450.org May 31, 2019 at 10:01 am #

      I wrote this up a couple of years prior when Meuller was given the special counsel assignment.

      • Neon Vincent May 31, 2019 at 10:35 am #

        On the one hand, 450.org, you look like someone who would enjoy a lawyer joke if you didn’t take the threat you think they pose so seriously. On the other, the current President and the previous Republican Commander-In-Chief, both MBAs, demonstrate that there are worse alternatives than attorneys as politicians. Lawyers at least have a code of ethics, as unrelated to conventional morality as it may seem, and professional bodies that enforce them. On the other hand, businessmen don’t seem to have either. If a business owner acted unethically, the local Chamber of Commerce can’t sanction them, not like a state bar association can an unethical lawyer.

        Enough of today’s topic. I’m returning to Monday’s, the trade war with China. First, the tariffs from the U.S.-China trade war are likely to accelerate the Retail Apocalypse, causing up to 12,000 additional stores to close. This is on top of the 6,000 stores that were already scheduled to close as of April. So much for recreational shopping at the mall. Also, U.S. restrictions on Huawei have prompted China to threaten retaliation by restricting exports of rare earths. That will cripple production of all kinds of high-tech goods here, as China supplies 80% of the rare earths used in the U.S. So much for “too much magic” from our technology.

          Many politicians are lawyers so you’re splitting hairs. Lawyers & politicians are cut from the same dastardly cloth. Peas in a pod. Can’t have one without the other like a horses and carriages.

        • Tate May 31, 2019 at 10:59 am #

          Mueller is trying to cover his ass for his ass-covering role in all this. What a tangled web we weave… &tc. Maybe he thought at the outset he was really going to find something. It almost certainly will all come out in testimony. If so, that’s no way to treat a “friend,” Rod Rosenstein, even one bracketed with quotes.

          When the truth comes out, it will be a mosaic pieced together from the competing lies of the rats as they flee the ship.

          • hmuller May 31, 2019 at 12:13 pm #

            From NBC News:

            “Mueller, whose report did not come to a traditional prosecutorial decision on whether Trump obstructed justice, reiterated his conclusion.
            If we had had confidence that he clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so,” Mueller said, implicitly refuting Trump’s repeated statements that Mueller had exonerated him. “We did not, however, make a determination to whether the president did commit a crime.”

            So in effect Mueller is saying Trump failed to prove himself innocent. “I can’t prove you’re guilty, buster, but you just better watch yourself!”

            I don’t know which night school awarded Mueller his law degree, but they really need to raise their standards.

        • shabbaranks May 31, 2019 at 11:53 am #

          FYI – President Trump DOES NOT have an MBA degree. He earned a B.S. in economics from the University of Pennsylvania in May 1968. He attended the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania for two years after transferring from Fordham University which he attended for two years, enrolling in 1964.

          Source:
          en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Trump#Early_life_and_education

          • Ol' Scratch May 31, 2019 at 12:55 pm #

            So he’s got at least a few brain cells and a modicum of common sense left that they didn’t kill off, then. That’s good to know. Having an MBA should be an automatic disqualifier for any type employment, never mind public service. Wharton’s a heavy hitter, especially back in ’68 before education became nothing but an expensive credentialing service.

            Thanks for the correction. For once, I gave Trump too much credit.

            Funny you should mention 65 years. Earlier this week one of the longest running records in all of sport was broken. A guy named John Schmidt (I think) sank 626 consecutive balls, calling every shot, in the game of straight pool. The old record was set by Willie Mosconi in 1954, 65 years ago …… 526 balls. The story appeared in the NYT one day this week. Mosconi’s record was set on a 4’x8′ table. The new record was set on a professional size table, 4.5’x9.0′. Most people believe playing on the larger table is more difficult. Some believe otherwise. If I can find the Times article I’ll post a link unless 10 or more commenters tell me “don’t bother, Who gives a shit.”

          Enough about Mueller and the trade war too. A subject of even greater importance is immigration control or the lack there of, and the refusal of our entire government, to do anything about it. Now Trump is pushing tariffs on Mexico because he doesn’t have the balls to close the border. Or maybe everything we were told during the campaign was all lies and bullshit. I would be in favor of anything that would bring manufacturing back to the U.S. and regain control of our border. Damn all the American companies who have relocated factories to Mexico. If you don’t control the border, NOTHING ELSE matters. One word. MORATORIUM. Demographics matter.

            Q. Shtik, I liked the straight pool item. I love Snooker. Played a lot of 9 ball, 8 ball, straight pool not so much. Great game though. Good pool halls are disappearing in my area. We have one about 20 miles away that still has the pro tables and snooker too. Old building with tobacco smoke and beer. They recently had a fire that burned the bar and cooking area up front but the pool tables and that part were unscathed. Used to have a rack man, but now its all by the hour and no smoking in the building. That sucks, as I like to smoke my pipe when playing. Anyway thanks for the broken record info.

          • SoftStarLight June 1, 2019 at 1:23 am #

            You are absolutey correct cbeard! Without a border we are not a country. We need the Wall and an immigration ban right away. This is an immediate emergency.

            Trump has tried to keep his campaign promise. The GOP, partly out of a desire for cheap labor, partly because they think they can grab the Hispanic vote as a counterweight to the Democrats’ de facto ownership of the black vote, and partly because Paul Ryan was a moron, did diddly dick to help Trump. The Dems, seeing millions of probable voters flooding into the US, refuse to help Trump achieve his biggest goal, despite last promises to secure the border. If Trump so much as farts, a Clinton- or Soetoro-appointed judge slaps him down, saying anything done to protect the United States from a de facto invasion is unconstitutional. Sheer fucking madness.

            I was skeptical of Trump when he took office. While I don’t agree with some things and wish he’d shut up sometimes, he’s done a pretty good job overall — certainly better than I expected. Moreover, the field of Dem presidential candidates is atrocious. Even though a recent poll found 40% of Americans support socialism, I’m not sure many voters will vote to bring the joys of Venezuela to America. Hopefully, not many will, or we’ll be fucked.

          • gonetohell May 31, 2019 at 8:00 pm #

            You actually have the stones to suggest that Trump’s OPPOSITION has no scruples. It just doesn’t get any better than that to illustrate the mental ineptness of Trump supporters.

        • Tate May 31, 2019 at 11:05 am #

          He probably is “one of them” in the limited sense of being controlled by zionist interests. But why is it that he just can’t get any love from them if he’s “one of them”? They sure have a strange way of showing it, no?

          His ego is way too big to willingly play the role he’s been assigned if he’s “one of them.” Witness his treatment at that press club dinner where Obamaa laid into him. That’s when he decided to show them a thing or two. I admire him for that.

            One could say the same about the Obaminable President!
            Thin skinned, mean spirited, easily angered his dislike of Hillary is legendary and speaking of the Hildabeast she was thin skinned as well.
            In fact by all reports she got mad if you said good morning or made eye contact with her walking down the hallways when she was the domestic goddess in the Whitehouse!

            George W Bush on the other hand seemed to have a pretty good sense of humor even laughed when someone threw a shoe at him not to mention pretty good reflexes for an old geezer.

            I suspect at that level most of the residents in the Whitehouse are thin skinned and quick to anger.

        One of my favorite speaking slides is to show a picture of Republican and Democratic Presidential candidates from 1984 onward, Walter. The R’s are all white men, and traditional American stock; the D’ s start with Mondale, go through Dukakis, and end at
        Hillary. The question to the crowd: which group is more diverse?

        After everyone chooses the Democrats, the reveal is the graduate degrees held by each of the candidates. The only law-degree holders amongst the Republicans are Bob Dole (undergrad) and Mitt Romney. The only non-lawyer amongst the Democrats? Maybe Hillary, who was censured while serving on the Nixon impeachment.

    • Ol' Scratch May 31, 2019 at 10:20 am #

      The Rolling Stone article is a great expose of how the FBI/CIA create
      and magically shut down synthetic terror events for PR purposes. Of course they also let more than a few carry through to completion for added dramatic effect, which are then aptly termed “false flag” incidents. No matter the term, all this bullshit has been going on in earnest since 9-11 – the mother of all false flag events – and to a somewhat lesser degree since at least the early 90’s and the halcyon days of Janet Reno and the BillyJeff gang of desperadoes.

      But shame, shame for impugning Putin in the same breath as W. and his gang of silver spoon adolescent miscreants. Putin is several orders of magnitude less malevolent and more wise than any western leader since at least FDR, and possibly ever. It’s a definitive sign of western decadence and decline that western citizens don’t even have the capacity to recognize a genuinely effective leader on the increasingly odd occasion that they actually see one anymore.

      • SoftStarLight May 31, 2019 at 10:26 am #

        You’re right about that Ole Scratch. Putin is a real leader that cares about his people and country. We haven’t had that in a long time. Not in my lifetime at all. I am not saying that some of our political leaders don’t have some level of care and concern. But selfless civil service is definitely not there in my opinion for the vast majority. But the reality is that most Americans when presented with different solutions seem to always go back to the status quo.

        • Janos Skorenzy May 31, 2019 at 1:09 pm #

          He cares for the people of his country – not the Russian People per se. In other words, not the Whites before the Turkic or Mongolian peoples, often Muslim. A political man who values a particular political order. Not the Organic order of National Socialism.

          • Janos Skorenzy May 31, 2019 at 1:13 pm #

            The people are a means towards an End, namely the glory of a renewed Russian Empire or Soviet Union – not an end in themselves with the political order serving THEM. And if you were going to serve the People, you have to delineate which People. You certainly can’t serve Russian Whites and Chechen Muslims in the same state in the same way.

          • Ol' Scratch May 31, 2019 at 4:09 pm #

            Don’t know for sure who he cares for, per se. But keep in mind, any single man can only accomplish so much in a single lifetime. Putin was dealt an historically shitty hand at the end of the 90’s by the drunken kleptocrat Yeltsin and his globalist shyster accomplices; but now, only twenty years later, he has almost singlehandedly returned the Russian nation to global prominence by selectively jailing the plutocrats and seizing their ill-gotten assets, thus restoring national pride and faith in a reasonably fair and lawful system. Try to imagine any single individual (or group of individuals) accomplishing the same here. Never going to happen.

          • Janos Skorenzy June 1, 2019 at 12:09 am #

            We all went thru it a few years ago – the Cult of Putin. He’s an impressive man and it was wonderful to see him stare Obama down and make fools out of NPC Western journalists while smirking and smiling. Even flirting with Meagan or Me Gain Kelly. But we then looked closer and listened to what he was actually doing and saying.

            This white racist (inbred?/retarded?) screed has actually been quite informative. Putin’s hit record on oligarchs is about as good as our drone bomb hit rates (plenty of innocent Russian oligarchs lost all their assets and sit in prison). So, hard to falt him, rLy.

      • Janos Skorenzy May 31, 2019 at 1:06 pm #

        Yes, but he wants a return to the Russian Empire, considering the death of the Soviet Union the greatest tragedy of the 20th Century. The actual Russian people (the Whites)? He doesn’t particularly care for them – and he hates White Nationalists who do. Thus he’s allowed millions of Muslims into the greater Moscow area to work – and what kind of real visionary or great leader would really allow such a thing?

        But yes, America is so bad that he is still ahead of our recent Presidents. At least he cares for the idea of Russia so he could be said to be of the West in some sense. But since he doesn’t care for the physical substratum of the West, namely the White Race, he’s just another one who wants the scent without the flower.

      “I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Lawyers are scumbags. I have yet to meet one or know of one who is worthy of my respect. They are the worst of civilization. They’re even worse than pedophiles, and that’s pretty fucking bad. Why are they worse than pedophiles? Because lawyers have the ability to do much more damage than pedophiles. Pedophiles can only damage one victim at a time as horrible and heinous as that is, but lawyers, especially government and corporate lawyers, can ruin millions, nay tens of millions and perhaps even hundreds of millions, of lives with their diabolical “legal” machinations.”

      Well, who should make legislation then? Not artists, shirley, you jest. Look what happened the last time a government a frustrated artist as its head of state.

      I go back and forth on this one. At some points it seems like nothing will happen. Like the Ol Devil says all of DC is in on the game at one level or another. However, on the other hand we know that people backstab and throw each other under the bus. And human nature doesn’t change. It could be possible that inertia is simply not an option in this case. I certainly hope not. But part of me is still pessimistic too.

            That’s true Tate. The Conservative side allows the agenda to be set by the Liberal side and then they try to fight the Liberals on narratives that naturally then favor Liberals. Conservatives have to learn to set their own agenda and narratives if the two party system even continues anyway.

Take out the dollar bill – the Cap Stone is separated from the rest of the Pyramid. Conceive of the Pyramid as a Mountain and that the Cap Stone is the level above the clouds. We can’t see them at all. But they can see us at times when they choose to, studying us like bugs. Their servants are many, known and unknown, but those below the Cap Stone don’t know their Masters in reality, do not know their real thoughts and desires.

          Gotta agree with you JAZ. Watching these power mad progs is horrible to behold. It is getting worse daily. I was telling my wife just last night that the worst part of all is how most progs know damn well what the truth is but DO NOT CARE. To them the end justifies the means.

          We have reached the breaking point now. One needs to tread carefully in their everyday life. Be wary of everyone. Sad that we have come to this but it is so. Know the political leanings of your Doctor, your children’s teachers (I could expound on this one for a books worth), your neighbors and relatives, you car mechanic… on and on. Your quality of life and even your very life could be in the hands of people who’s political leanings overshadow everything.

          Don’t believe me? Read history. The story of human existence is filled with enough senseless killing and enslavement by political ideology or despots to fill a library. Oh and it does.

          By the way it doesn’t matter the race. All races from day one have been lying, killing, enslaving, torturing, and territory stealing from the day we crawled out of the ooze.

  3. Walter B May 31, 2019 at 10:12 am #

    Right on Jim as usual. This nation has certainly degraded to a point where “anything goes and nothing really matters”, and unfortunately for US(A) all, “truth is now whatever it is that you want it to be so you can make it up as you go along!”

    I have spent most of my life dealing with and working with lawyers in the corporate world and in government. In the old days, the lawyers that uncovered the truth and presented it properly would win the case and collect the prize. Unfortunately for us all, the other side of the coin, the loser lawyers,have worked out a system where they can fabricate truth, deny fact, and prevent victory by either side. They have converted “innocent until proven guilty” into “guilty until proven innocent”, a starting point that defies vindication, doesn’t it?

    Because the lawyers own and operate the system from the top on down, I cannot see things ever improving, making collapse become the only real “solution”. A world made by hand will be far nicer than a world unmade by lawyers don’t you think?

    • SoftStarLight May 31, 2019 at 10:37 am #

      A world made by hand does seem like it will be nicer. But there will be great pain, suffering and lots of death in order to get there. Society has not prepared in any meaningful way for that eventuality.

      • Walter B May 31, 2019 at 11:43 am #

        Look around the world SSL there is a lot of great pain, suffering, and lots of death all over even in many places right here in America. Our rulers have distracted us all away from the existence of such calamities to keep up struggling to get that carrot on the end of the stick. We have not done a very good job of sharing as a species have we?

        • SoftStarLight May 31, 2019 at 12:34 pm #

          Well yes there is already a great deal of pain, suffering and lots of death. There has been for all of the eons we have been here. I was just saying that once the systems that most people have come to depend upon fall apart we will have a lot of mass suffering and death. And because our population is so huge now it’s probably going to be something never quite witnessed before. But it is true Walter. We are not very good at sharing and caring. Hardship is changing that for some people now and will change it for most people when the time comes. We are a social species after all and rely on one another naturally. Some people have forgotten that fact because all of our artificial systems allow some people to live without relying on others at least directly for now.

          • Majella June 1, 2019 at 6:44 pm #

            “…lots of death”
            It’s been statistically determined that the human race suffers a 100% mortality rate.

      • Sam Stone May 31, 2019 at 11:54 am #

        That is why it is called dystopian. One minute we are all living with iPhones, computers, air travel, every form of entertainment ever invented at your disposal 24/7, so much food that even the poorest among us are obese…then boom; emp, nuclear strike, massive volcano swarm, asteroid hit, or whatever catastrophic event you can envision and the world is an unrecognizable hell that the overwhelming majority of folks will not be able to deal with.

        One can only hope we end up with “a world made by hand.” Methinks that most will not survive “the event” and those that do will find that the “might makes right” mentality will prevail.

      • GreenAlba June 1, 2019 at 6:57 am #

        “But there will be great pain, suffering and lots of death in order to get there.”

        There will be great pain, suffering and lots of death once you’re there too. Remember what happened to Britney’s daughter.

        There will be no vaccinations or antibiotics. No modern anaesthesia. No maintenance of nuclear power stations or nuclear waste. No fire brigade.

        We could have started powering down and planning decades ago, as advised by Richard Heinberg. But if you told the population about what we’re facing they’d vilify you and call it ‘Project Fear promoted by the commies who want to tell you how to live your life’.

        • SoftStarLight June 1, 2019 at 12:50 pm #

          Yes I agree with you. I wish that more had been done to prepare us for what is coming. And no doubt there has been Capitalist propaganda to encourage people to be happy and ignorant consumers. Communist countries have horrible environmental records too. But human nature being what it is, I can only assume that people will try to maintain the status quo by any means necessary. There is still lots of coal. It will be used even despite the horrible environmental impacts unfortunately. There is still enough time to prepare but the problem is a human nature problem. It can’t be solved democratically. It requires the enforcement of law and absolute authority. And I don’t think you would be for it. Until then within an individualistic and free society people will do what they want and what seems best for them.

          • Majella June 1, 2019 at 6:46 pm #

            So, what are YOU, specifically, doing to prepare?

          • GreenAlba June 2, 2019 at 6:26 am #

            Indeed. You only need to consider how much time you’ve been prepared to waste denying that AGW is even a thing. Imagine trying to get people like that to accept ‘project fear’.

            Talk, talk, dither, deny, procrastinate, deny, talk, talk, dither, deny. Rinse and repeat.

          • SoftStarLight June 2, 2019 at 12:20 pm #

            Yeah and what are either of you doing to prepare? I don’t think embracing a mainstream theory about what may be causing a particular climate disturbance within our lifetimes is any type of preparation. Should you wish to really prepare then I expect to see you two disappear from the board because you’ll need to give up the use of any and all devices and gadgets requiring electricity and internet connections. Otherwise the traps can shut because you both rely on the current status quo like the next Jane.

          • GreenAlba June 2, 2019 at 7:45 pm #

            Did anyone ask you to give up all your gadgets?

            Just give up some of them. Every little helps. And helps prepare you. The car is the most significant one, though. I did that almost 20 years ago. A fairly good preparation too, since no-one else will have one either in the fullness of time. I don’t think I’ll get any credit (literally) for it though. I’m guessing the people who have sharp elbows now will have even sharper elbows then. And you’ve got a gun. 🙂

            I need my computer for work. Maybe you do too.

            A mainstream theory based on evidence. There is no virtue in being a maverick if you’re just being a maverick for the sake of it and because you don’t like the people who accept evidence.

        Like you I find the era of mass residential building of clone homes to be a ghetto of unsightliness that my brain has a hard time accepting. I’ll take old & historic any day of the week as well.

It’s like hearing someone scrape their fingernails along a chalkboard or a machine that is just about to crap out. I personally can’t stand dialup 56k connectivity anymore.

            The lowest level interface enables one to allocate dwindling finance more equitably budget wise in that I don’t get soaked by ISP charges. Unfortunately, there is the downside of access to media formats leaving Luddites like myself in a backwater of Internet at low cost.

      The problem is the number of politically stupid people has been grossly increased due to political correctness, a really poor propaganda machine aka the education system and an increasing influx of socialists called illegal aliens.

      The international Left knows it cannot militarily take over the country, but due to our political system, it can take over by making more stupid citizens to outvote the base. It is happening and is taking over the country state by state.

      There is no way to stop it. And it is accelerating in spite of Trump.

      What is coming? Look at the states farthest down the conversion curve, California and New York being tied for first. TLE in action.

When denial of death manifests we get people like Musk advocating for increased space exploration in hopes of finding another planet to destroy with the hubris of the uncivilized man.

      Man has not learned to live in harmony with all life due to ego. Freud’s ambition in life was to replace civilization’s id impulse & lack of control with reasoned self analysis and control of the ego.

      ‘Where id was ego shall be’ was his guiding principle.

      If corporatists represent all the uncontrollable ‘id impulses’ we the people are representative of the control of ego going forward.

    Don’t you get it. 2016 was an attempt to put the Liberals into power in DC permanently. They are using the Constitution to lawyer the Constitution out of existence. The want to control our religious expression, our speech, they already control the press next will be disallowing opposition assembly by intimidation.

    Amendment one will be gone.

    Gun control by the Left

    Amendment two will be gone. So will the ability to fight back.

    Congress is no longer functional in its job of creating laws and providing funding

    The president is hamstrung in his ability to do just about anything.

    The Supreme Court is a rubber stamp.

    Habeas corpus, innocent until PROVEN guilty, rule of law. All taken out by the Kavanaugh hearings and the Mueller “investigation hoax.

    Mueller’s backtracking to be expected , the Left has found a weak point and has leverage on him. His capitulation will be total.

    The Left of this country is the worst enemy the defenders of the Constitution have ever faced in our history, much more dangerous than the rebels of 1861. They have no desire for the goodness of their country. They want power period, unchallenged dictatorial power.

      IRS harassment of individuals with political views counter to those promoted by pro-globalism neolibs/cons

Only because the everyday Joe and Jane are beginning to notice that the America we believed exists doesn’t really exist anymore is there any backlash at all.

          God’s sense of irony is definitely being expressed here.

          Fifty years ago, the US was the capitalist capital of the world luxuriating in their manufacturing monopoly over a war ravaged world. The USSR was the capital of socialism in the world. We fought and won the Cold War to preserve capitalism.

          We have switched places.

          What happened?

          I say it is the socialist forces, now global, have been thrown out of Russia and have been brought into the US in droves. We demographically are no longer capitalistic, we are a socialist country.

          We have switched places.

          The New Left is an expression of this. Capitalists are outnumbered but luckily not outgunned, yet.

          The Left has done this so well that it was not even noticed until recently.

            I would just switch that word Socialist with Communist. Real Socialists John are not Communists at all. The problem is there is little real Socialism in the world. After all most political systems end up getting corrupted. If Socialism would be done correctly with corruption punished maximally and stamped out every time it reared its ugly head it would be the best of both worlds. But it also needs a Nationalist component. Because the Nationalist component will keep the Socialist component honest. But yeah if we keep going with Democracy the Communists will manipulate the electoral system to win elections. Because right now they are in the game and the Nationalists (which you are one) are not in the game with them or at best they are very bad at the game right now.

            The uncivil war was as much about States rights as it was about the end of slavery.
            I believe slavery would have ended sooner or later without the massive blood shed and hard feelings.
            Fore reference Slavery was alive and well all over the new world and no one else had to fight a massive war to end it.

        Thank you Tate. The Confederacy was America. The Union was too but they supported what was un-American. States constitutionally had the right to secede. Slavery would have ended naturally because it was a horrible and wicked system. Eventually the South would have industrialized like the North and things would have balanced. But we killed each other in mass numbers for them and they could care less now. And yes, now slavery is confined to the Brown and Black countries and Brown and Blacks are the slavers and the enslaved. So go figure.

        • Tate May 31, 2019 at 2:54 pm #

          Yes, & many Whites were equally enslaved, press-ganged from among the most desperate of the poor out of the public squares & pubs of Old Blighty.

          The first Blacks to come to Jamestown had been captured from a Portugese slave ship. Because they had been baptised, & it was English tradition that a Christian could not be a slave, they were put into indentured servitude instead the same as the Whites. This was in early Virginia. That’s why there were Blacks who owned slaves, having won their freedom. Some of them even assimilated successfully into White society, or their descendants did.

          But gradually over the course of the next generation, from 1619 to about the mid-1600s, attitudes hardened. British settlers developed prejudices spontaneously against them for no reason whatsoever it seems & a system of brutal chattel slavery evolved piecemeal one statute (not statue) at a time.

            Given that Tate said the British settlers developed prejudices against them for no reason, which is of course what defines a pre-judice, the problem seems to have been a bit one-sided.

            Some people back then took succour from what are generally now considered misinterpretations of the bible in the matter of racism.

            Not that it would make any difference if the bible actively promoted racism, since it was written by human beings anyway and contains all their faults and foibles, as well as their better aspirations.

            Oh well I took that part as sarcastic Alba. The common narrative is that Whites are inherently wicked. So of course they would spontaneously choose to hate another group. Why not lol? Yep you got it. Human beings are absolutely spiritual as well as material beings. Thus humans naturally have a proclivity to worship and to religion. More interesting to me is your absolute faith that there is no possibilty of revelation. No possibility that we can connect with that which is greater and beyond ourselves. It is within us too and thus you at least recognize or give credence to the idea that some forms of religious expression are the manifestation of our better angels. One way or another though its clear we all have faith of some kind.

            “It is within us too and thus you at least recognize or give credence to the idea that some forms of religious expression are the manifestation of our better angels.”

            We have evolved as social creatures and thus have also evolved to realise what traits lend themselves to functional social societies. That is not strange.

            We like poetry and ritual too, though, because we like to impute meaning to the universe and fear the bleakness of there being none. Many of us are happy enough with the meaning that living in family and society give us.

            Other people’s suffering causes us distress; other people’s happiness makes us happy.

            So basically its odd to have a differing point of view? Why do you suggest that I think someone cannot appreciate beauty and create beauty and not believe in anything supernatural? I never said that. I’m not sure what you are getting to here.

            “So basically its odd to have a differing point of view? Why do you suggest that I think someone cannot appreciate beauty and create beauty and not believe in anything supernatural? I never said that. I’m not sure what you are getting to here.”

            Of course it’s not odd to have a differing point of view, but you keep telling us what is true for everybody.

            I mentioned beauty because some people consider an appreciation of beauty to come under ‘spirituality’. So, if you look at it that way, people can be ‘spiritual’ without believing in anything supernatural. That’s all I meant.

            And if people are ‘naturally religious’, why have other advanced countries, apart from the US, moved on from high levels of religiosity, leaving you as an outlier?

            Europe, Australia, Canada – none have the levels of religiosity that the US has, so it would make more sense to look at why the US is like that than to make statements such as that ‘human beings have a natural proclivity to worship’ just because that’s what you know from your own experience.

          • SoftStarLight June 2, 2019 at 12:09 pm #

            Well that is interesting Alba because I am pretty sure you keep telling us what is true for everybody when it comes to climate change though you have nothing to rely on other than other people’s studies and theories. So this could be said about anyone and anything since nothing is really guaranteed in life beyond death. People choose those things to believe in that makes the most sense to them. And since no two people are quite alike you have billions of opinions and viewpoints.

            In terms of your assertion that one can be spiritual without believing in anything supernatural. How exactly can that be? If you look up the definition of spritual you’ll find that it basically means a connection with the supernatural. Beyond our mere material existence. So let me know how one can be spiritual without recognizing anything supernatural. I am genuinely curious and open-minded to your explanation of this.

            And lastly, you always emphasize how much of an anamoly the US is in comparison to the rest of the developed world on the issue of “religiosity”. I would think it has more to do with the US having traditionally been a society tolerant of religious expression. The rest of the developed world is not quite as free and much less tolerant of religious expression. Although the freedom to follow Islam does appear to be sacrosanct in even the most intolerant first world societies. So it seems like you are calling the US out because you have a specific problem with the Christian religiousity you see as being problematically anomalous and outlierish.

And since no two people are quite alike you have billions of opinions and viewpoints.”

            You are never going to get that something people accept on the basis of the best evidence available isn’t the same as something the ‘believe’ on the basis of no evidence at all. So you will just keep repeating the same thing endlessly. The reality of climate change doesn’t depend on billions of opinions and viewpoints – it depends on the evidence, which is pointing one way.

            In terms of your assertion that one can be spiritual without believing in anything supernatural. How exactly can that be?

            The definition you use will determine the logical outcome. I said some people regard an appreciation of beauty as spiritual. If you don’t accept that (I didn’t say what I think one way or the other) and that the spiritual must involve the supernatural, then you’ve disproved your own contention, which was that all people are spiritual. Have it whichever way you want.

            And supernatural is a non-category anyway. If something exists, it’s natural, if it doesn’t exist, it doesn’t exist and doesn’t come into any other category than that.

            Anyone can be religious in Europe or Australia or Canada. They are just less so, by choice.

      Maybe it’s because I don’t support either major party, and therefore not confined by rooting for my team, that I can see both the Left and the Right are obsessed with making everybody live in the way they think is correct. The flip side to the SJW/antifa contingent are the Christian dominionists. These people clearly want a Christian theocracy, regardless of what the majority wants. Both sides allow increases in the power of govt while they are in charge, but are horrified when they are out of power and the other side starts using the machinery they built themselves.
      There’s two ways both sides can get what they want. 1.). Slaughter the shit out of each other until people are geographically divided up according to ideology or 2.). Chill the fuck and live the way they want while allowing others to live the way they want. People only get hostile when they feel like some other is trying to force a foreign way of life down their neck. The harder a person believes they are in possession of the one, absolute truth, the more friction they are going to encounter, not because people are out to get them, but because they’re being arrogant.

      Sorry, pal, but that’s incoherent drivel and self-contradictory in so many ways, my head hurts.

      ‘The left will destroy Amndmt 1’ – from what I’m seeing, Orange Tariff Man is doing a stunning job of that with his ‘free press is the enemy of the people’ schtik.

      Who’s coming for your guns, exactly? You gun-nuts have been rolling that old trope out for YEARS but there’s absolutely no evidence of it, anywhere! FFS! Give it up….

      ‘The president is gamstrung…’ if so, it’s because he lacks any IDEA what he’s doing. Even if he did, he’d have no idea how to achieve anything anywa. He’s a fraud and a loser.

      ‘Congress is no longer functional’ …yep pretty much since 1994 & that two-faced dipshit Newt Gingrich. Followed more recently by the Teabaggers, and now Trump & his total infiltration of the Banana Republican Party as evidenced by the utter hypocrisy of McConnell and the shape-shifting caucus in the Senate.

      The Supreme Court is a rubber stamp’ if you mean it’s now so politicised that it’s its irrelevant, then you may be right. Add another right-wing conservative faux-Christian Justice and you nut-jobs will gave it stitched up. You’ll end up with a ‘Christian’ legal system that will be just as nasty as Sharia law. Look at Handmaid’s Tale.

      ‘Habeus Corpus taken out by the Kavanaugh hearings’ Huh??? I thought you got your man. It was an enquiry, a trial, if you will. Standard process. How was HC ‘taken out’?

      All the crap about Mueller doesnt make any sense at all….

      Then writing off EVERYONE who you think disagrees with you as would be dictators? Pot, meet kettle. What a load of utter unadulterated crap.

    Mr. Mueller said all that because

    A. He’s more afraid of Hillary Clinton – his Dear Fuhrer – than of the electric chair

    B. He needed to throw a bone to his colleges in the House of Representatives, who are so eager to fuck Trump up that they can’t eat.

    • SoftStarLight May 31, 2019 at 11:04 am #

      I agree with you on B for sure. On A I still think that Mueller is friends with Hillary and not necessarily afraid of her. After all he has done a great job of distraction and deflection and she has been able to run around free and continues to damage and reap benefits from the destruction in her wake.

But they are here and they’re never leaving. And the Deep State has plenty of both parties in it. Parties being just an illusion at that level.

    Remember Martha Stewart? Remember how she went to prison?
    Remember what she went to prison for?
    If you said “insider trading”, well you are wrong.
    There wasn’t any evidence of insider trading, probably because she didn’t do it.
    Instead they got her for not being truthful with investigators, and maybe there was some obstruction charge or other in there.

    Remember Rudy Giuliani, discussing whether the president was going to talk to the Special Council, stating that investigators were trying to get him in a ‘perjury trap’?
    Rudy has been around the block a few times, and knows sneaky bottom-feeders when he sees them.

    Back to Martha.
    Anybody remember who the head of the FBI was when she went to prison for basically nothing?
    Remember who the questioner she was evasive with was?

    We’ve already seen one high government official pleading the 5th. That Lerner character with the IRS.
    The government at the time received a whole lot of Americans’ tax records they had no business asking for, let alone receiving.
    But let’s all look away, in unison.

    Sorry folks, the human psyche can’t tolerate circumstance beyond its ability to manage. That is, reality is its nemeses. Thus so, mystical (supernatural) powers are conceptualized as benign intervention elements (ego extension). Prophetic religion, Voodoo, Cargo Cult, and all such mystical agents, or, in the case of secular “beliefs”, there are the various “isms” that have proliferated since Western scientific pedagogy took preeminence . Taken together = myth and fantasy to allay anxiety. So, don’t believe that any significant proportion of the population has the intellectual capacity or curiosity to look beyond the manufactured, institutionalize denial scripts, whether of religious or Utopian nature. Essentially, our “human nature” combined with all the difficult to manage complexity we’ve created (nuclear power) we might have cajoled ourselves toward the cul-du-sac of human existence.

          Exactly! And I am completely grateful and thankful that we have made such great advancements in medicine and health among many other things. And guess what. A lot of great discoveries have been made by religious people and at religious universities. My only point is that we can have technology without giving up our religious nature. The association of atheism with technological advancement and ultimately progress is a myth at best and disingenous misdirection at worst.

          • GreenAlba June 1, 2019 at 2:56 pm #

            I didn’t suggest atheism was associated with technological advancement – or indeed science. Look at what the Golden Age of Islam achieved.

            I just wondered what the point was of saying that modern society is an anomaly in its degree of secularism. What else would it be? People had no idea previously why certain things happened or where humans came from, so they made up stories.

    Rober Mueller was head of the FBI when that questionable Uranium One deal was made.

    There was a rule in place about ten year term limits for FBI directors, because so many felt that Hoover stayed much too long.
    Anyone remember a special exception being made for Robert Mueller?
    Both parties went for it.
    When both parties go for something, it means they are working for themselves and not the people who put them in office.
    I would say the people who pay their salaries, but these people have become so stinking rich off of “public service”, that it can’t possibly be the public they are serving.

    That’s why the old and addled can’t go away. They are waiting for anyone who might uncover what they’ve done, or even care to, to die off.

    Does anyone really believe Nancy Pelosi’s heart bleeds for a bunch of border crashers from south of the border?

    I see it as a confrontation between Trump and the media. It is a collective fantasy centred on the media. Or embodied in the media. It is hard to define it because it seems that the media “are” the fantasy (as per Bruce Charlton’s Addicted To Distraction). For them Trump is the Evil One so the ends justify the means, even if the rule of law is destroyed in the process. Witch hunts always cause institutional damage, to the credibility of government, judiciary and police (as well as the media, of course. Take that as read.)

    Since “everyone knows” Trump is the problem and it is as obvious as the nose on your face I expect inconvenient parts of the Constitution to be ‘forgotten’ and an even more creative interpretation applied to the law. I expect deceit on a(n even) massive scale and media misreporting and dishonesty on a (what?) titanic scale. Expect logical non-sequiturs and baby talk, and stupidity in spades. Perhaps Academia will drop all pretence of even-handedness and come out against Pure Evil too.*

    *A columnist in Ireland’s big-selling Sunday Independent, Declan Lynch, has more than once calledl on the media (sic) to stop bending over backwards and treating the President with disrespect (n the light of all his crimes) and instead to call it as it is, which is so ridiculous it is difficult to know where to stop laughing and start crying. But that’s collective delusions for you! (I am currently engaged in a surreal YouTube discussion with a person who is trying to convince me that the nuns working at the mother and babies home in Tuam, in Ireland, did indeed throw 800 infant corpses into a septic tank. I am trying to get my point through that it would have made more sense to give simple funerals, and maybe even while they were at it to throw in a few ol’ prayers (which need not have been heart-felt, but at least would maintain appearances and avoid arousing suspicion) rather than clogging up the sewerage system with corpses. But he has me down as a fantasist. My next move, if our correspondence continues, is to suggest that it would have made more sense for Evil Nuns to torture the children in secret and to arrange for only carefully select clericaled operatives to be initiated into the Diabolical Plan thus ensuring the success of the Cover-Up. (Perhaps the Russians might have been persuaded to assist.) The drawback with throwing their bodies into the septic tank would be that someone might see it (if only the man who is called out to unblock it) thus blowing the operation, and it is not always possible to ‘silence’ whistle blowers, even for the Vatican. I hope you are all keeping up with me.)

    • Sean Coleman May 31, 2019 at 12:15 pm #

      I found Lynch’s column (4 Nov 2018).

      Start of quote:
      But it may be too late – last week The New Yorker journalist Adam Davidson was beseeching his American colleagues to abandon what he called the High Church of Both Sides, “an ideology which believes that journalists are at their best when they ignore their own beliefs/prejudices, etc and are able to cover ‘the other side'”.

      Davidson describes this both-sideism as “a useful tool in normal times… but it has no crisis mode”.

      Of course some of us didn’t need the emergence of these various “authoritarian” leaders across the world to realise this – and some of us would even dispute the assertion that both-sideism is “a useful tool in normal times”. As for the belief that journalists are at their best when they ignore their own beliefs/prejudices, it seems to have escaped the attention of those who teach and preach in the High Church of Both Sides that that would rule out Ernest Hemingway, George Orwell, Christopher Hitchens, Tom Wolfe, Hunter S Thompson and Just About Anyone Else Who Was Any Good.

      They don’t see that, because strangely enough these advocates of both-sideism will only accept their own side of that particular debate. But as Adam Davidson and other leading American journalists are observing, there are not two sides to the Trump story, and to suggest otherwise is not just an error of judgment – it is worse, it is an error of fact to be reporting what Trump is saying without immediately pointing out that it is either a lie, or a statement issued with no concern whatsoever as to whether it might be true or false.

      It’s too late now in America for a Section 31. They should have seen this monstrosity coming, but they didn’t. Or not enough of them saw it. Some of them still don’t understand what’s happening, otherwise those White House correspondents wouldn’t be sitting there as usual, maintaining this false impression that democracy is still the name of the game.

      So the very minimum that is required now, is that they stop going to that room to be “briefed” by Sarah Huckabee Sanders – it would be symbolic at least, and might even upset the Trumper, to have the enemy dictating the terms for a change.

      They must also stop going to the rallies, where he has made them part of his act – again he would miss them there.

      Forget about the mythical journalistic “balance”, because the far-right, the Provos, so to speak, are everywhere now. Forget about the “both sides”, because the media helped to put them there, and the media has to do everything it can to get them out – there’s only one side now.
      End quote.

    • Sean Coleman May 31, 2019 at 12:25 pm #

      Correction “and treating the President with disrespect” should read “respect”, which does of course alter the meaning somewhat.

      There are other mistakes in there so, for fear of misunderstanding, what I am saying is that the Irish media (like everywhere) think the US media are being too decent towards Trump, trying to see both sides, when they should really be speaking truth to power. (Yes, I know…)

    If you look deep down into that thing we call reality, and what it’s made of, that veritable botanical garden of subatomic bits and blobs, that appear and disappear, whose existence can often only be inferred with the most expensive pieces of hardware and information technology, that play peek-a-boo with physicists, well, then we’re into “mysteries of existence”.

    All this shit happens on a realm that only the mind with the creative and computational power of a deity (if such a thing exists) can fully apprehend. Protoplasmic sacks like us get glimmers maybe, but the energy and time necessary to get to the bottom of it don’t exist on a scale that we can conjure. Is the observable universe really in effect a hologram whose information is encoded on a two dimensional surface? How do you prove or refute such stuff? Here we’re really talking “mysteries of existence”.

    So what about this Mueller magic show and the mighty tome he produced? How many mysteries of existence are buried in it? None really. The only mystery is what George Carlin would say about it. I can picture the commentary as to the stunning full of shitness of it all.

    I doubt he’d miss the fact that people claiming to be the most intelligent and well educated are willing to believe damn near anything they’re told, even the most improbable narratives typical of what you’d hear from homeless crazies who forget to take their meds. Because that’s where Russian collusion sits on the scale of likelihood to anyone with even a tenuous grasp of what’s real and what isn’t.

    I have a better idea and I consider myself a journalist as much as any journalist. I’m a citizen journalist. I don’t have sponsors who insist I see it a certain way and report it thusly.

    Transcendence. To be fully independent, you must transcend all sides rather than getting mired in understanding one side or two sides or any side.

    The issues stand on their own merits and are mutually exclusive from one side or another. The sides don’t get to define the issue or own it. You define it on your own terms with an objective, open mind not sequestered by suffocating ideology.

But we do agree I think that a lot of diversity has negative impacts. Ultimately people naturally associate with those they are most comfortable with. Yes this has a lot to do with class and education. But the race factor can’t be ignored. Because in-group preference is generally hardwired. Whites are more “color blind” because of the total and complete brainwashing on matters of race that was implemented long ago to bring about exactly what is happening today. The demise of the West via the demise of Whites. I can understand you being sick unto death of it. Nobody ever said life was easy. But it is still real and true.

    Long live the national interests of the United States – Russia’s best friend!

    It’s been a year and a half since Trump made a speech about Afghanistan, in which he said that he had a plan for this unfortunate country, but he would not tell anyone, except for the clearly indicated promise to attack. Then the battle began in the Crimea, everything is in smoke, nothing is visible.

    When the smoke cleared a little, I personally saw that the battle did occur in the Crimea.

    Indeed, at first it became clear that Trump is going to attack nuclear Pakistan, for that he is going to help nuclear India, which is on the verge of a nuclear war with China, which can receive Iranian oil only through Pakistan, if the US blocks the Strait of Malacca.

    And for some reason I remembered that the United States wants to force nuclear China to nuclear disarm the nuclear North Korea, which supplied Pakistan with the missiles needed to deliver nuclear ammunition, for which they conduct maneuvers at its border that mimic the invasion of the United States and South Korea into the North Korea.

    It became clear that Trump does not want to disclose the Anaconda-2.0 plan; only the object of strangulation is not the USSR, but China, which is impossible while Russia is its ally.

    And Russia will be a loyal ally of China, while America does not recognize the Crimea as part of Russia, because without the Russian Crimea, the Black Sea turns into a launching pad for American missiles.

    But since Afghanistan, in which the US Army has been at war for 18 years, has become the reason for not laying out this plan, and since Iran and Pakistan are allies of China, the territory of Russia is becoming the only way to supply this army for reasonable money, which is especially important due to the additional deployment of fairly significant contingents in Afghanistan.

    Otherwise, it will have to be transported either by air, that is, 10 times more expensive, or with three transshipments through Georgia, Azerbaijan, the Caspian Sea, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, which is about four times more expensive than the route through Russia.

    The problem is that a year and six months ago, when the still inexperienced President Trump offered Putin a deal “lifting sanctions in exchange for betraying China, Iran and Syria,” it turned out that he was not thinking about that at all.

    Hillary brought the relationship of Russia and the United States to such a shithouse that Putin could offer Trump in response to his really warm feelings toward Russia only the lack of nuclear bombardment of American cities.

    In this situation, Russia cannot refuse such allies as China and Iran, and besides regional truces in Syria, assistance in supplying the American army in Afghanistan is almost the only opportunity for Russia and the United States to cooperate in the fight against Islamic fundamentalism.

    And this is incompatible with all this fuss in Ukraine, especially considering that to the unlimited the supply of Ukro-Nazis with lethal weapons, Russia can respond to US with a similar feat in Afghanistan and the American soldiers in this country will become either hostages or a target in the shooting range.

    Unfortunately, not only the citizens of the United States, but also the so-called political elite of the United States, are completely unaware of these circumstances and want to arrange a second cold war, foolishly hoping that it will end just like the first.

    Therefore, before Trump starts to somehow change the trend that Minister Lavrov quite diplomatically calls the “Obama Administration”, Americans must be thoroughly frightened, and Kim Jong-un in this sense made an outstanding contribution to the cause of World Peace.

    In addition, it would be nice for Americans to remember who was an ally of America in World War II, and who was its enemy, and for my part I can testify that, without additional reminders, Americans remember who bombed them on September 11, 2001.

    And no Michael Moore will convince them of the opposite.

    In this case, conspiracy theories only add anger to Americans, but do not essentially change anything, since the knowledge of what happened is based on the supersensible perceptions of the collective conscious of USA. And the fact that it was awakened under the influence of this event for me personally is beyond doubt, although the very fact of its presence was a big surprise for me.

    Actually, the fact that America will have to rethink its history after World War II became clear in 1998, when the newspaper Le Nouvel Observateur asked the chief architect of the US victory in the Cold War whether it was worth provoking the Afghan war, if it led to the creation of Islamic fundamentalism in the person of Osama bin Laden.
    marxists.org/history/afghanistan/archive/brzezinski/1998/interview.htm

    By the way, on the day of the killing of Osama bin Laden, I felt for the second time the presence of a collective conscious in America, which brings us back to Trump’s speech and Zbig’s answer to the question Le Nouvel Observateur.

    He replied that the destruction of the USSR cannot be compared with the appearance of Al Qaida, which from his point of view was then nothing more than a regional force. But Trump was elected by the President of the United States by the people who strongly disagree with him, and Trump in his speech showed that he does not intend to give up his main electoral promise – to abandon the policy of regime-change and focus on America’s national interests.

    And the America’s national interests are the main ally of Russia, much more important than Trump’s friendly feelings.

    This is all the more important because 2 years after this interview, Osama bin Laden very theatrically refuted Zbig’s thesis about the regional nature of Islamic fundamentalism.

    And the modernization of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces and APL somehow levels the American joy of the collapse of the USSR, especially since recent events have shown that the appearance of the North Korea’s delivery vehicles for nuclear warheads, and the very existence of these warheads are also a consequence of the collapse of the USSR.

    Now the United States are being targeted by more warheads than in 1989, plus the Islamic state bombing US allies every week, and the need to compete with such an economic giant like China.

    So long live the national interests of the United States — Putin’s Russia’s best friend!

        As you know the DoJ no longer publishes useful raw data; besides, what would get YOU ten for “hate crime” is not even counted when BellCurvious does it to you.

        So, from the slightly dated crunches of Edward K. Sims:
        – From a spike in the lower 1990s (“crack wars”) murders dropped sharply over all demographics and continue to, except in blacks who steadily rise since 2006, with marked steps for O´Bummer and Ferguson.
        – 3/4 of black violent offenders are male 16-24; the sharp drop at 25 is present in Whites too, but black geezers are still slightly more violent than White yoof.
        – Blacks murder Whites 20x more often than the reverse (per capita, probably worse now)
        (In absolute numbers they still murder a lot more blacks unlike, say, rape; for every yoof self-defended by wayciss YT – i.e. whose life “matters” – over 40 are killed by their own)
        Gang assault, >300x

        Rape, >1000x (i.e. the reverse does not happen)
        (National averages, a correction for “proximity” is not feasible; IOW if you see blacks, the probability is already higher )

        – Urbanization raises violent crime by a factor of slightly over 10, i.e. rural blacks are only slightly more violent than urban Whites.
        – For big cities, the correlation between % blacks and murder rate is r=+0.77
        (0.2 = “weak”, 0.4 “significant” and 0.6 “alarming”)
        – Correlation with ambient temperature is good.

            To walk around with a huge chip on their shoulder.

            Yes and no. Blacks ARE people too! They have their own bell curve and thus there are some Blacks who excel, achieve and can compete with White and Asians academically. But not many and much of that is culture. You know culture is an extension of innate intellectual capability too. And you can see that native Blacks in Africa generally have lower levels of culture even after exposure to Western culture and advancements just like American Blacks. And hey I don’t condemn them for it. It isn’t their fault in that sense. But that is why we should stick with our own and they with theirs. No need for animosity and conflict. I do agree with you that media targeted to Blacks should encourage healthy family formation and adherence to law and order. But that isn’t going to happen. Don’t ya know we are White Supremacists for even suggesting this?

        Maybe it’s the hypocrisy of associating the word “love” with the sliminess of what they actually manifest in their words and actions.

            Now consider: Our Race is dedicated to sharing everything it has with other Races – including its women. Other RaceS are natural me firsters. The Government, in its infinite benificence, has chimed into to make this tendency into Law. Corporations are all In for it too. These trends doom us. It’s just that simple. We can’t help others who only help themselves while our Government helps them to all that we have. Not and survive that is. And finally, Western Culture is dependent on the Western Genotype. If dies as we do. Or are you another who imagines the fragrance can exist without the flower?

Even he measures people by who they are and how they act over external features. You need to grow up and get out a little not all Black people have that nasty chip on their shoulder and not all White people are worthy of your instant approval. In fact the Zulu in SA are now siding with the White people over the ANC the ruling communist party in SA.

    JHK’s commentary perfectly sums up why impeachment won’t be initiated. Not only will it fail in the Senate, not only will it hurt Dems in 2020, but it opens up a Pandora’s box into the investigation itself.

    In this regard, it has more in common with the OJ trial than with Nixon. We went from a suicidal OJ speeding away from a phalanx of cops to Mark Fuhrman potentially planting evidence. Expect the same from any impeachment proceedings.

    You think OJ had a “Dream Team”? Imagine what kind of team Trump-billionaire money buys. Nixon redux? Think again. Nixon actually committed the crimes to which his obstruction was tied. Trump’s alleged obstruction consists of exercising his Constitional prerogatives, for reasons that exceed even the most stringent burdens of credibility.

    There were excellent reasons, for example, for firing Comey. Claiming the intent was to “obstruct justice” lacks even the foundational pilings of plausibility. How would firing Comey stop Mueller from pursuing his investigation? It wouldn’t, couldn’t and didn’t. What it did do was remove a partisan incompetent scumbag from thoroughly destroying the FBI’s dwindling integrity. Kudos to Trump for doing so. Does anyone recall tens of millions of Nixon supporters celebrating Nixon’s actions during the Saturday Night Massacre? Tens of millions rallying to Nixon’s defense?

    If Dems want another OJ trial then bring it on. And that plan for Mueller to use the Fifth Amendment? Sorry, dude, it’s not an option once Mueller is granted immunity. He either talks or goes to jail.

    • Ol' Scratch May 31, 2019 at 3:14 pm #

      Nixon actually committed the crimes to which his obstruction was tied.

      Actually, he didn’t. He plausibly would have had the idea been presented to him and actually believed in the resulting confusion that he did, but he didn’t. He was “righteously punked” by his own party, as the young’ns might say these days.

      But impeachment? Nope. Good ol’ Nancy’s standing firmly in the way of lifting the lid on that Pandora’s Box.

        >>> Actually, he didn’t.

        Actually we don’t know if he ordered the Watergate break-in.

        But it’s an undeniable fact that he ordered the Brookings Institution break-in. To quote the Nixon tapes…

        “Goddamn it, get in and get those files. Blow the safe and get it.”

        Not only is this felony conspiracy, but it implies that he was well aware of the types of felonious activities his fixers were involved in. He repeatedly used the full weight and power of the presidency to investigate his political enemies to “screw” and “blackmail” them.

        • Ol' Scratch May 31, 2019 at 4:22 pm #

          Yeah, he was an Ol’ Dirty Bastard alright, which is what made the whole Watergate fiasco so deliciously ironic. They got him for something that he committed in his heart, if not in fact, and he was all too happy to resign because of that. Just too funny!

          With Nixon, the old saying, “I’m not [just] paranoid, they’re actually out to get me,” definitely applied. Any DC pol makes a lot of enemies in their careers, but Nixon – the man behind the man in the McCarthy hearings and the consummate old money DC outsider – certainly made more than most.

      Yep, just had my own brush with Type II. Just got my latest bloodwork results today and it’s beginning to turn around now. It was REALLY REALLY tough to beat this time, however! Shocked me straight for good this time. Alcohol, especially strong beer (refined carbs + alcohol), is the biggest contributor for most men, while women generally favor the sugary treats. Combine that with a normal American diet heavy on starches and cheap carbs, and if you’ve got even the slightest pot belly you can be sure that you are either already Type II or soon will be, no matter what your age. Makes it damn near impossible to lose weight and SEVERELY impacts the proper functioning of your entire endocrine (hormonal), hepatic (liver), nephrologic (kidneys), and cardiovascular systems. And as an added bonus: it kills you nice and slow too!

        The really sad thing is that the “normal American diet” tastes like shit even to the non-discriminating palate such as mine, The mask is the addiction to high fructose, msg, and perhaps few other specialties with a fluoride back.

        Dive into the kale, chard, broccoli, et.al., spuds, brown rice, grass fed beef, ripe fruit, and nearly anything else not in a package, organic all, and find out how shitty that American diet actually tastes.

        Then enjoy a single strong beer of an evening if you don’t share my genetic predisposition for alcohol gluttony and recheck your definitions of what is.

        Fast for one day per week and you will not have to worry about Type II D. Eat natural yogurt with live cultures/enzimes & make sure to take vitamin C on a regular basis.

        Beer has too much yeast and that will cause GI Tract difficulty so it’s best to stay away from too much brewers yeast. Alcohol coverts to acetaldehyde and it produces fat/carb effect because it converts to sugar which is just more useless carbohydrate.

        The upper paleolithic diet is best for long term health. Think hunter/gatherer anthropology and then take a good look at the modern diet which is front loaded & back loaded with far too much refined white sugar or fructose which will destroy the nephron tubes in the liver.

    Sorry, Jim, I am not getting it. I am convinced you (and Andrew McCarthy, e.g.) are right in that Mueller does not want an impeachment trial in the Senate. He would not be able to excuse himself as a material witness to any number of critical facts in the investigation of the president, which will likely make him look like a scoundrel. What I don’t understand is how his presser and the change of tune (“it’s the OLC guidelines”) speaks to that. Why would he egg the idiots to impeach – and my guess is that they will – if he does not want that? He gave the Dems all he could on the Russkies low-budget “interference” in the 2016 election. He even indicted Russian nationals on that ! But beyond that there was nothing. The collusion thing was a non-starter. You could see that from the fact that the whole case ended up in an incessant obsessional harping on a single meeting of Junior with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower, who it turned out under microscope was not connected to Putin but to Fusion GPS. So, Mueller gave the Dems and the Intel honchos their morcel, and hit Trump best he could with what he had. So why would he not retire on that? Why did he not say, e.g. that Trump’s hostile attitude and intemperate remarks aimed at the investigation were unworthy of the office of the president but – in view of a lack of evidence of an underlying crime – did not rise to a level of indictable offense ? I mean, if he really wanted wash his hands of the whole mess and retire in peace, if he really wanted to rise above the fray. See what I mean ?

    This is the logic of Mueller’s statement to the press, merely turned on him instead of Trump:

    “I can find no evidence to clear Robert Mueller from charges of conspiring in an attempt to destroy the Trump presidency. Therefore I cannot exonerate him of that possibility.”

    I believe we are in the midst of a revolution.  The oligarch’s headlong rush to imprison the world in globalism in an effort to stave off its eminent financial collapse and their opponents who want to put a bandaid on what is currently modus operandi.  But the situation cannot be made better. America was sold out to a vision of itself as a global superpower, above the laws of prudence, conservatism, moderation. The cast of characters assembling for the televised showdown of good vs evil moderated by zombie panels are appalling.  Not a one of them has the self respect, the dignity of a 10 year old kid.  The dollar sign on their foreheads are there to be seen by the whole world.
    What we await is the inevitable financial collapse, in other words, the wake up call where there is not enough money to keep the elites on their perches.  The United States of America is no longer functioning.  Most of it is becoming an eyesore, cities are on the verge of bankruptcy and Trump wants to cut welfare, Medicaid and food stamps, a mere drop in the bucket for the gargantuan military budget.  Capitalism has failed.  The elites believe they can keep this going with wars, and I’m afraid as the country starts to implode a third world war will be instigated.  Other than that, we wait for the cataclysm to unfold.
    It need not be that onerous, and it will give the people an edge and a voice.  If there is anything to be done it is in coming up with ideas on how to create something more efficient, with more control on the rules that govern the behavior and actions of elected and appointed government officials, insuring a need for transparency.  Getting rid of the Fed would help, also bring an end to the congressional game playing one-upmanship, and put these people to work on issues of relevance to the ruling a country, etc, etc.

      “Capitalism has failed.”

      Could that be misstating the problem? It is easily possible to imagine world/historical scenarios in which high quality life for a much higher percentage of people could have existed for years, even centuries longer.

      Capitalism as we see it in play today and mostly always have is just one of the possible mutations of a system. Today’s mutation became malignant but it could have been otherwise.

      At the core the failure is the failure of humans. Every single human is born to face the same challenge. Overcome ego. Foolhardy religions put it outside the person and called it Satan, the devil, evil spirit etc. It’s that thing within you that always wants, needs, seeks attention and glowers at all other contenders.

      Any system is born to fail until humans in charge evolve.

      • Ol' Scratch May 31, 2019 at 5:08 pm #

        Capitalism as we see it in play today and mostly always have is just one of the possible mutations of a system. Today’s mutation became malignant but it could have been otherwise.

        All true, but those are the main questions to be answered in a nutshell. Could today’s “mutation” have possibly been otherwise, or was it inevitable all along, especially given that human foibles are a presumptive part of any system’s design? In that light, systems of any kind must be reasonably “human proofed” before they are ever adopted in the first place.

        Whereas Communism was an inherently conservative system that presumed individual humans were inherently selfish and needed to be restrained for the good of the whole, capitalism is inherently optimistic (liberal, if you will) and assumes that unrestrained individual selfishness will somehow magically result in the optimum outcome for the whole. Obviously, to my mind at least, neither is correct.

        • libertysghost May 31, 2019 at 5:31 pm #

          Both appear to culminate into despotism as the sociopaths/psychopaths consolidate power.

          I can be argued, however, that Communism realizes that end quicker because the consolidated power center is there from the beginning maybe.

          • Ol' Scratch May 31, 2019 at 5:39 pm #

            I think that’s right. Good capitalists are able to camouflage their true intentions much better and for far longer. Let’s face it, greed is inherently more enticing than personal sacrifice to most people. It sells itself quite easily. A lot like sugar in the diet, now that I think about it. Coincidence?

        • Janos Skorenzy May 31, 2019 at 5:35 pm #

          All ethical system presume man tends towards the bad – else why would they even exist but to try and correct that? Thus Communism is more correct, but of course can’t be taken seriously because it tries to quash men or thinks they can be remade.

          As far as Capitalism, don’t know if you are correct. Adam Smith was a strict moralist who for some daft reason didn’t think all that came into economics or should. That rather some “invisible hand” would save the system from human corruption. That is obviously insane yet John Az and countless others struggle to overcome this propaganda. Tate has said he struggled for decades to do so. Q has never struggled with it at all. Just accepts human debasment as the norm.

          Btw, Q has his share of goodness, it just doesn’t enter into his thought system very often. Sometimes it intrudes as disenfranchised psychic complex, with him indignant that I have him all wrong, etc. Just wanted to add this caveat that discriminates between him as a person (father and family man and one who loves the hapless Peter) and his amoral Capitalist ethos.

          I’m no expert, but I think other big guns shared Smith’s contradiction. John Locke for one, another moralist who agonized over whether child labor should be allowed. He decided in favor of it – not wanting to deny them their rights. Despicable insanity, totally cut off from the realities of human life. Yet the same man took out a scapel and operated on a friend who needed some cutting. Renaissance Autist.

            Excellent thoughts. I’m still not entirely sure what to think about capitalism either. Seems to me one has to contort oneself mightily to even think of it in moral terms. Seems more like the very definition of an amoral system to me.

            Even it’s so-called economic benefits are for the most part extremely short term and shortsighted, leading to our current long term predicaments of overpopulation and rampant environmental degradation in particular, among many others.

            Capitalism at its heart means you are rewarded for your own labor. If you are a person who feels rewarded by being able to share good fortune you are a different capitalist than if you only feel rewarded when you see your pile is the biggest.

            LOL! That’s a real knee slapper, especially in light of current events. Capitalism hasn’t rewarded labor for what, 75 years now at least? And even then, that was mostly to do with FDR’s New Deal, which was barely a speed bump for the globalists. Piling up the biggest stack is the basic point of capitalism!

        This would assume that evolution is working towards some higher nobility or improved design when in fact it doesn’t. It has no foresight.

        I think Ol’ Scratch is right. It’s the inevitable trajectory of our species. A mammal in overshoot. Perhaps capitalism has merely replaced good old fashioned physical violence in eliminating the weak, for now at least.

    Arctic Fox from an Oil Rig, biting Netanyahu up the Ass, and Kabbalistic Madonna

    I am very sorry to not have provided a post describing Bastinda’s retaliation after the appointment of John Durham as prosecutor in the case about the beginning of the Mueller investigation, with a video about arctic foxes from the oil rig, which workers taught to drink, smoke and swear in dirty Russian, because these foxes very much resemble Madonna who studies Kabbalah:

    youtube.com/watch?v=8h0eE0r-PAc

    Moreover, recent events have shown that this funny resemblance actually has a very deep and very scary meaning, and Madonna is in a sense an Arctic Fox from a drilling rig who did bite Bibi on the ass.

    Immediately I warn you that in order to substantiate this point of view, I’ll have to lift the veil of secrecy over Madonna’s performance, but the interpretation of a work of art is quite complicated matter, and I didn’t have time to research on the Internet and test the hypotheses that connected Madonna’s performance with the Rammstein video “Deutschland” and the family of Herods, who seized power in Judea on the eve of the Nativity of Christ.

    But since this statement really has a direct bearing on the political crisis in Israel, I took it as a sign to write about it again, at least in dotted lines, but in more detail than in the tip I left in the previous post.

    Therefore, I ask you in advance to forgive me for possible inaccuracies and even mistakes, but there are too many coincidences, and I am confident in the general direction of my conclusions, and errors and tensions that I may admit can be corrected using Google without changing common meaning.

    First of all, I must say that the political crisis in Israel is much more serious than what is written about it, and the main question to which I do not have an answer is that it was:

    A. Bastinda’s retaliation against the appointment of John Durham

    Or

    B. Bastinda’s response to the Big Bargain between Trump and Bushes and the refusal to support Huntington’s “civilization” unity on the G-20 in Argentina and at the funeral of George Bush Sr. after the arrest of Ukrainian sailors in the Kerch Strait and the early closure of the last holes in the Russian early warning system on nuclear attack.

    Meanwhile, from the answer to this question, in theory, should depend the reaction of the Church and the Russian society to the events in Yekaterinburg.

    Agree that if this is a bite of a rat, driven into a corner, then the protesters should be crushed and the Temple should be put in that place, and if this is a well-prepared attempt at a coup d’état in the first answer to this question, then the State of Russia and the Church are vitally interested in the speedy descent of this scandal on the brakes otherwise it is possible to play up to the new Red Presnya (Revolution), and there it is not far to February 1917.

    Unfortunately, there are too many people in Russia who want to re-check the causal relationship between the Pogrom of Russian Athos by the hierarchy of the Russian Orthodox Church, who after a few years after that Pogrom put on red bows in honor of the overthrow of the Tsar.

    And the Blood Libel with the pogroms in Moldova and in Ukraine should not be forgotten, since the Jews, though they left Russia, but again they were in the same boat with the Russians.

    Indeed, the main battle for Russia with the Islamists takes place on the borders of Israel, and the events that determine the assessment of the Yekaterinburg crisis take place in the Knesset and at the Eurovision Song Contest of 2019.

    The fact of the matter is that the Knesset voted for self-dissolution after the failure of negotiations with the leader of the Russian emigration after it became clear that a Jew from Moldova was flapping on a Bastinda’s hook like a pike who swallowed her bait, and you can only pull it out with his guts.

    All negotiations with him were directed to buy the time, and in the meantime the President of Israel and the rumored old enemy of Bibi Reuven Rivlin was preparing to create another government that practically canceled Israeli election results in 2019, just like the start of the Mueller investigation almost canceled the 2016 elections in the United States.

    Netanyahu did not have the slightest chance of forming a government, since the failure of these negotiations was laid into the script initially, and the new elections give him at least some chance, and Trump’s America has time to finally strangle the original source of its problems.

    And these events, in particular the bait in Moldavian pike, make us look at the performance of Madonna not as a work of art, and not even as a certain ritual or even an act of black magic, but as a call for the revitalization of certain religious and political forces in Europe and Israel, which I, as a Jew, is ready to drench in the shithouse anywhere in the world and in any religious affiliation, including because half of my family died in Ukraine, and my grandfather, having survived near Rzhev, was crippled during the crossing of the Dnepr.

    To be continued…

            Used to be that Scotland and England had competing nobilities, Robert the Bruce era. Does Scotland still have a noble elite?

          • GreenAlba June 1, 2019 at 5:29 am #

            I wasn’t being that serious, JohnAZ. We have Sirs up here as well. The international tennis player you know who was for a long time British (in the media) when he won and Scottish when he lost is now a Sir. A Sir with a damaged hip, unfortunately so his days of glory are pretty much over.

            I’m not an expert on the aristocracy of any of the constituent countries of the UK There are lots of their descendants still living in country piles – without the historically compliant peasantry with no other employment options it’s difficult to keep financially afloat and maintain such piles unless you go into business and offer them as wedding venues or conference centres. Or you can sell them to the National Trust, which does an excellent job of retaining them for the pleasure of the public.

            Jacob Rees-Mogg married into such a family and so did David Cameron.

            But for the biggest fish, retaining the family pile remains a going concern.

            In Scotland we have the dichotomy of an ordinary population more minded to take care of its fellows than parts of England, but a still-feudal land ownership system, on which I am not an expert. Occasionally the population of a small island will manage to a buyout and henceforth own their island themselves, install some wind turbines and the like, and run things themselves. Although the owner of a small island these days could be a rock star, just as much as a hereditary aristo anyway. But they generally move on and put the place up for sale.

            I have a friend whose husband is a sheep farmer about 40 miles south of Edinburgh, as were his parents. He owns his own house, I believe, but his parents were tenants of theirs and the land they both work on belongs to the Duke of Buccleugh, who owns swathes of land across the region.

            Here he is – he’s one of the biggies:

            en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Scott,_10th_Duke_of_Buccleuch

            He owns bits of Edinburgh too, I think, and has a steet named after him. He has a number of titles and sits in the House of Lords, so I guess he has both that power (although it’s not the same power as the House of Commons) and the power he gets from his fortune in land, houses, paintings and whatever else. You never see these people, unless they’re mentioned as part of a debate in the second chamber, so I don’t know anything about him.

            As you can see he went to Eton and Oxford, as they tend to – they often sound just like their aristocratic English counterparts.

            Other times you see a bloke and his wife with a title living in a small Scottish castle that needs millions spent on it that he hasn’t got and he’s not much different from anyone else living round about. They might be happy to retire to a warm bungalow and I’m sure some of them do!

            That’s probably a big reason why Rory Stewart (candidate for the premiership) supports May’s deal with the EU – lots of his constituents are Cumbrian sheep farmers, who aren’t ‘globalists’. They’re as local as you get – you don’t get rich being a hill farmer.

        Wow! You should have bet me, you would have broken even.

        You suck at trying to analyze me.

        I have to say, it makes me sadder a black person was the shooter. That just makes it harder on all other members of his race.

        If it was a white shooter that would just bring more pressure to bear on guns. Now it will just be the ‘ol people kill people screed.

        How about just making it illegal for black people to own guns? They would be the main beneficiaries.

        I don’t think I’m not racist. I think it is idiotic to not be conscious of race. If you are conscious of race then how can you not be conscious of differences? It’s completely out of line that just to be aware of racial differences allegedly makes one racist.

        I’m wary around adolescent and post-adolescent blacks. Just as I am around white guys wearing wife-beaters with dobermans in their lifted pick-ups. Most of the time people who make us wary turn out to be as nice as anyone you call a friend.

But I have never heard the story you mention about Jesse Jackson. Funny that he feels safe around White people and yet essentially advocates for White genocide. But his attitude on the matter is pretty common among Blacks. Anyhow not to digress too much. I am happy that we can agree on the basics :-)!

          That pic is circulating far and wide and keeps coming up in searches. More likely they just want to hide his identity because he isn’t White. If he was White many photos of him would already be available and we would have lots of juicy details by now.

            Turns out the shooter was a black guy who was recently fired from his job with the city. It doesn’t seem like race was much of a factor in this shooting. Chalk it up to a case of ‘workplace violence’.

            One thing tho, his weapon was a .45 semi auto handgun, first manufactured by Colt in 1911. What that means is we won’t have to hear about ‘assault weapons’ and all that for the next 2 weeks.

          Two witnesses told police they saw a black man later identified as Willie James Hayes, 46, assault the victim, throw him onto the tracks, walk to the edge of the light-rail platform and say, “I (expletive) told you I was going to kill you.”

            In the ‘Mansions’ section of the WSJ on Friday, section dedicated to giant houses in LA county, one selling for $500 million, many more in the $50 million range. One of the points was that these properties aren’t exactly selling like hotcakes. As houses go they seem pretty ugly in their extravagance, IMHO. Last week on this board we were talking about tens of thousands of vagrants living amongst rats and other vermin on the streets of LA and the emergence of dysentery, Typhus, and Bubonic Plague. It doesn’t much imagination to predict these tbis high end real estate, in a dystopic near future, to be tbe future home of squatters and various tribes of homeless, or otherwise abandoned.

      A gun is a tool in fact as far as murder weapons go globally they rank fairly low except here in the Americas.
      Edged weapons, poison and blunt force on the other hand!
      Just remember the term assault weapon should be used on the weapon used in an assault.
      Calling an AR15 an assault weapon makes someone look ignorant.

    This is who I am by Morrissey. Irish blood, English heart.

    In early old age could I please express very sincere thanks to BBC Radio 2 for their broad-shouldered support given to “California Son”, “Wedding Bell Blues” and “It’s Over”. Whatever the future brings, I will always remember Radio 2’s steady support during these rocky weeks – especially from Jo Whiley.
    I am sorry the UK print media’s contorted interpretation of who and what I am has gone all wrong. In these days when most people are afraid to even whisper, the print media write as if someone is coming to get them. This aching nervousness brings on the vengeful and paranoid. Inventing Britain’s doomsday is the preoccupation of the tabloids, and they can hate you for having lived.

    I straighten up, and my position is one of hope. The march backwards is over, and life has begun again. With voice extended to breaking point, I call for the prosperity of free speech; the eradication of totalitarian control; I call for diversity of opinion; I call for the total abolition of the abattoir; I call for peace, above all; I call for civil society; I call for a so-far unknowable end to brutalities; “No” to Soviet Britain; prayers not to gods but to forces; an end to disingenuous media cluelessness; the people have the power; hatred and beheadings belong in the furnace of history; music might still be your only friend; for every shade and persuasion … we shall always be alongside each other – everyone’s culture of value; no more fashionable outrage; cows are friends to humans – don’t kill them; beware of those who write in headlines; moral fiber means holding on … to your friends; give up on inferior arguments; God gave you your life to enjoy – you will cry for your life in years to come … death always answers back; do not be a nobody; you have survived this far in order to make the remainder peaceful and funny; your very survival proves that you have a right; ignore the cold eyes of fascism; your life is Art.

    JS: They hate him because he loves the real England just like Orwell did. The Liverpool Mayor (if memory serves) said of the bombing, It was done by extremists. Morrissey quipped, “Extremist what? Rabbits?” So now he’s actually supporting an England First far right party. He has grown bold in his older age. But the need is great. Bravo, Heart of Oak.

    “….your life is Art.”

    This is from “A Bucket of Blood”, a film about an artist who literally kills for his art.

    “I will talk to you of Art, for there is nothing else to talk about, for there is nothing else… Life is an obscure hobo bumming a ride on the omnibus of Art. Burn gas, buggies, and whip your sour cream of circumstance and hope, and go ahead and sleep your bloody heads off. Creation is, all else is not. Creation is graham crackers; let it all crumble to feed the creator; feed him that he may be satisifed. The Artist is, all others are not. A canvas is a canvas or a painting. A rock is a rock or a statue. A sound is a sound or is music. A preacher is a preacher, or an Artist. Where are John, Joe, Jake, Jim, Jerk? dead, dead, dead They were not born before they were born, they were not born… Where are Leonardo, Rembrandt, Ludwig? Alive! Alive! Alive! They were born! Bring on the multitudes with a multitude of fishes: feed them with the fishes for liver oil to nourish the Artist, stretch their skin upon an easel to give him canvas, crush their bones into a paste that he might mold them. Let them die, and by their miserable deaths become the clay within his hands that he might form an ashtray or an ark. Pray that you may be his diadem: gold, glory, paint, clay, that he might take you in his magic hands and wring from your marrow wonder. For all that is comes through the eye of the Artist. The rest are blind fish swimming in the cave of aloneness. Swim on you maudlin, muddling, maddened fools, and dream that one bright, sunny night the Artist will bait a hook and let you bite upon it. Bite hard and die!… in his stomach you are very close to immortality.”

    Also from Maxwell H. Brock:

    “To be uncreative you might as well be in your grave….or in the Army.”

    “I’m proud to say that my poetry is only understood by that minority which is aware.”

    An amusing, and funny cult classic. Beatniks and all.

    But what about the billionaire? To Earn that sum, this guy would then have to work about 19, 800 years, rounding off and forgetting taxes, etc.

    I listen to the on-going debate on mass shooting and gun control, over and over and over.

    Effectively, nothing has been done ever about reducing the number of incidents. As the technology develops on consumer weaponry, the body count continues to increase.

    Anybody who would be a mass killer is insane, mentally ill. Our society sucks in its handling of mental illness. Its attitude, pretend it does not exist. Pay no attention to it until someone blows a gasket and erupts. Many years ago, what little mental illness care that was utilized by the government was discontinued and the insane folks were turned into the streets. The government washed their hands of responsibility and today most of the truly insane are on the street, many on drugs.

    Mental illness is real! Some is heredity, some is environmental. Folks with bipolar disorder or schitzophrenia have the disorder in there makeup. It is not treatable by just talking things out in therapy. Some help with proper drug usage can help, but much of the medical care these folks receive is not thorough enough to monitor them.

    The current administration makes a big deal about protecting the population from violence. There is more violence stemming from mental illness than a decade’s worth of immigration influx. A lot of the immigrants that create violent crime here are mentally ill antway.

    So if anything is aimed at really stopping this periodic, yes periodic bloodletting it needs to address the containment of mental illness.

    Containment, yes limiting the “rights” of mentally ill folks, permanently if necessary. Proper diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing assessment of these folks is necessary to try to control the situation.

    This is not being done now. The government is failing the public horribly with this. How many times do we hear about a post analysis of shooters including tons of input that they were “obviously” mentally ill”. This is an area that the government should be involved and active. It is always an indication of how poorly the government would handle health issues in general with socialized medicine. If something becomes hard to do or fiscally inconvenient, just pass some law and ignore the issue. It will happen!

    The government is the primary bad guy in this. But how often do we hear about mental illness as a political issue, almost never. Like everything else, if it is hard, sweep it under the rug.

    This social debacle will not go away or the shootings decline until the issue is addressed and dealt with. With our current impasse in DC not paying any attention to real issues, the prognosis for improvement are slim to none.

    Make sure you check for the nearest exit, next time you go to the movies or even go to work or school.

    Sick!

      What happens to people with mental illness who don’t have insurance?

      Mental health is a bit of a Cinderella service here too – mostly schizophrenics are well monitored and they are pretty compliant too on the whole in terms of taking their meds. The CPNs (Community Psychiatric Nurses) are very good with them, but there aren’t enough of them and the state of Mental Health Care is not good – it can take ages for new patients to get the help they need, especially young people, in whom stress, anxiety and depression is increasing.

          If you look almost every instance of mass shooter events the shooter is on some pretty heavy doses of SSRI far exceeding the normal doses and usually of a leftist mindset.
          That is why people like EvelynV are so desperate for it to be a righty type doing the shooting.
          The douchebag that shot up the Chabad here in San Diego claims to lean right but he is just another idiot with serious mental illness issues as all of them appear to be. He should be tired and fried it’s a shame the state of California simply won’t execute him.
          Make fun of these people point out they are crazy instead the media speaks endlessly about them and in that forum glorifies what they have done.

      John, Please. The government is failing because proper diagnosis, treatment and ongoing assessment does not control the situation. There IS NO proper treatment and diagnosis.

      The field of mental health, in a nut shell, is a fucking art form…not science. There are no answers. The art form cannot even provide a base line for “normal” human mental health.

      Proper diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing assessment of these folks is necessary to try to control the situation. – JAZ

      ==============

      I have known people who I would describe as ‘nuts’ or someone who we say ‘needs help.’ But when such people have actually sought out ‘help’: attended sessions, spoken with shrinks, gone on some regimen of meds, etc. I cannot think of one who I would consider to have been cured or successfully managed. I am a great skeptic about mitigation of mental health issues by *cough* ‘professionals.’

      Take my b-i-l, Peter for example — yes, here I go again about Peter. What started as a minor traffic violation: failure to come to a full stop at a 4-way stop sign 1/4 mile from his home, escalated into ‘resisting arrest.’ It is a long tale with many interesting details (court appearances, lawyers, fines, etc etc) but suffice to say that Peter is ‘on parole’ as we speak. He is a powder keg looking for a match. He gets into confrontations over little shit like being asked for ID while buying a bottle of wine at Rite Aid. I have had several screaming matches with Peter. Peter’s Uncle Ted has warned me to “be careful” around Peter. He feels it’s just a matter of time before Peter ‘totally loses it.’ I don’t know if Peter owns a gun but I wouldn’t be surprised if he did. His is a case where if the worst actually comes to fruition everyone will look back and say the signs were always there.

    As far as the results of spelling bees go, it points to a societal degradation of white Americans as opposed to any kind of biological deficiency. Stupidity has no known racial barrier, neither has sloth. You can blame a mass culture that puts more value in social skills and smiling charmingly than in intellectual achievement.

    While Caucasians may have historically been behind the developmental curve, it wasn’t because of genetics. Galileo and Isaac Newton were White and so was Charles Darwin and Paul Dirac and so were Plato and Aristotle for that matter. I could give you a hundred others. If it was a genetic deficiency, Americans wouldn’t have split the atom or put men in space or got to the moon, simple as that. And it was the detested White man that did all that and built the Large Hadron Collider and built gravitational wave observatories. And now they’re building detectors to see whether the universe’s quantum jitters point to a hologram-like basis for existence.

    When you’re talking about “race” people are more blind to fact and deaf to reason than if you’re talking about climate change.

    Neither topic has got any room for common sense but I’ll give genetics as a scientific field credit for being more resistant to the dictates of the political realm and geneticists as academics their due for integrity and honesty.

    All you can do is put facts as they’re known into the public realm. The best disinfectant as they say is fresh air and sunlight.

    I know the counter-argument, that facts didn’t do any good in the 1940s when it came down to massed armies and ultimately the hangman’s noose to sort out the lunatics running the death camps.

    Never mind scientific facts, historical facts never get answered by people that claim superiority on the basis of their skin tone and geographic descent. So, try this, tell them that their ancestors were thousands of years behind the civilizational curve. And then ask whether they would therefore judge themselves as racially inferior compared to people in other parts of the globe whose own ancestors built and rebuilt cities and invented writing and mathematics while the precursors to those claiming racial superiority were living in grass huts, people who invented neither writing, nor a usable numbering system nor useful stuff like paper. Nor gun-powder. Nor were they on the forefront of engineering nor architecture.

    Predominance for the past few hundred years doesn’t point to any kind of superiority when the building of civilization was thousands of years in the making. Ten thousand years ago Jerico had stone defensive walls and guard towers and it wasn’t untypical of what you found in the middle-east. There are artifacts eight thousand years old from China that have symbols that look like a forerunner to modern day Chinese script. Thousands of years ago the looked-down on brown-skinned Amerindian started farming and building cities. Two thousand years ago they built Teotihuacan, a spectacular place with pyramids and plazas. They built astronomic observatories and developed their own writing system, something that happened in only a few other places like Egypt and the Tigris and Euphrates and in China but not by the ancestors of those those claiming racial superiority. You’ll get accusations of various types but never refutations based in fact or logic or reason.

    Facts, after all, are exceedingly stubborn things and facts have an existence independent of what we think or whether we recognize them as such. You can’t change historical facts by re-writing history any more than Nazi scientists could refute relativity on the basis of Einstein’s inferior “race”.

    And yeah, I know, in the end the debate could get settled by bullets in foreheads. Too bad, that’s how it is sometimes. But don’t be too eager to pick up a gun because bullets fly both ways. And White men did get to the moon. Stubborn fact that is.

      Evolution, adaptation caused by environmental pressure. The more adaptable, ie adaptable survive and reproduce. Good characteristics are magnified, bad characteristics die out.

      Go back 500000 years. Where were the environments extreme and where were they difficult. Temperate areas with changeable and cold weather were much more challenging to life than the warmer areas. This speeds evolution. It continues today in humans. If the location of societies was static and people stayed in their traditional environments, things would be harmonious.

      Invent the jet plane, cruise ship etc. and all hell breaks out. Mixing of the folks into new environments is always stressful.

      Inventing a New World where everyone is mixing thing up is chaotic.

      • Slugoon June 1, 2019 at 4:01 pm #

        I think it was Daniel Dennett (there are probably many others) that explored the idea that religion conferred a survival advantage on its believers, not because of some divine protection, of course, but by the fact that any group sharing a common bond, whether it be religion, language, kinship, culture etc. has strength and safety in numbers.

        When the strains of a finite planet eventually give way and the population crash begins in earnest, where are the fault lines going to appear?

        I get the impression that Janos takes a lot of heat here for his views but is it possible he’ll have the last laugh? I haven’t thought this through enough personally but someone will be ‘last man standing’ and I wouldn’t be surprised if it is along tribal lines.

        In other words, everyone is the same so Whites can be driven into extinction and nothing will be lost.

        Face it E, they’re too clever for you, what to speak of the John Azes of the world. Only the Fascist or National Socialist who has stared into the Abyss and had the Abyss stare back into him has the Cunning to take on these Devils and pay them back stroke for stroke.

        Whites could have never created Chinese or Japanese Culture – and they know it because they love themselves. You don’t love your people as a group thus you don’t know it despite your high IQ and street smarts. To know is to love? Yes. But it works the other way too: Only those who love can or will know.

        • volodya June 1, 2019 at 1:17 pm #

          And business is business and facts are facts and love is bullshit. I mean, where did it all lead?

          National socialists, albeit aided by the dick-heads running the UK and Russia, put Europe on its death-bed.

          The problem? Delusions of superiority, to be fair, not only on the side of the Nazis, but on the side of the fuck-ups in charge of Britain because if they didn’t have a superiority complex then I don’t know anything. And let’s not forget the delusionists in Moscow because, after all, Russia is European.

          And so what do their successors they come up with? The EU and the Euro, which is something like tying rocks together and hoping they float better. You can say what you like about the Russians. Good grief, letting Putin and his gangsters run the show there? WTF?

          To know is to love? Maybe, but familiarity breeds contempt too.

          • SoftStarLight June 1, 2019 at 2:14 pm #

            So basically it does all come down to money and power in your estimation? What a bleak world. And since power is preeminent, those with the will to power will rise above those with less will and power. The issues at hand have nothing to do with superiority and everything to do with survival. Familiarity may bring contempt if their is great inequity and unfairness but otherwise that isn’t necessarily true. I am sorry but everything being strictly about money and power is a repulsive idea. I would much rather choose the path that offers Life. And yes V, Love and Life are actually hand in hand.

          • volodya June 1, 2019 at 2:41 pm #

            SSL, business is business and facts are facts but regardless, the route to survival is by means of reason, knowledge, wisdom, forbearance, foresight, and things like that. You know, seeing things as they are. There wasn’t much of any of it especially in 1914 and 1939. I suppose you could come up with a lot of dates when people took leave of their senses. But I would agree to choose the path that offers Life.

          The situationally-aware being just does not couch his arguments in a manner that they become instantly dismissed by a large segment of people.

            No, cuz Whites just aren’t that subtle. We can’t beat them that way. You have to beat the basics into the heads of the Azes again, and again, and again. I mean maybe we could become like them if we lost everything and became global vagabonds for the next two thousand years, but let’s take the easy way, k? Far more likely that we’ll just go extinct once we lose all of our countries, actually. Far more.

            People like benr (assuming he’s one of us) and Az didn’t appear by magic. They’re created by 12 or 16 years of school propaganda, reinforced by the Tube, friends, family, etc. It’s a science…..

            If you believe what I believe than you should know that John and Ben do not. And that most Whites aren’t going to get it until we set up machinery to make them get it. And that mean winning first. Unlikely? Yeah, I know. But what else can we do but try?

    Number two of the morning. BTW

    Good morning everyone.

    Why can ‘t Mexico and the US cooperate in building a wall, not in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California but between Mexico and Guatemala. Why is Mexico reluctant to do this and stop the influx there. They are being hurt just as much by “too many peons” as the US is. It is a mystery to me. And we should both pay for it.

    NAFTA was conceived as a way to increase cooperation between us and Mexico. Trump is wrong with his tariffs which will aggravate the situation instead of ameliorate it. Mexico needs to be the vanguard in the battle against illegal immigration and we need to assist them with cash and tech help to stop it.

    Part of the cooperation needs to address the drug problem which means that both governments need to grow cojones and clobber the cartels.

    I wonder what would happen in the US if a miracle happened and 90% of the incoming drugs stopped tomorrow. My guess is that we would have a revolution against the enforcement. Oh wait, isn’t that happening now being led by the Left, but not only the Left, and especially Hollywood. Can you imagine the mass withdrawal that would happen if that miracle happened?

    See my previous post on mental illness.

    The US cannot solve the border issues by itself.

    • beantownbill. June 1, 2019 at 12:10 pm #

      All living things on Earth are subject to mutations – such, is the nature of life. Mutations are a change in the way one’s body was originally designed. Some of those changes lead to mental illness. Crazy behavior in our species is a given. Take away guns, knives and the like, and the truly crazy will find a way to initiate violence. It is a fact of nature.

      It seems to me that drug use, or in other words, altered states of consciousness, is endemic to Homo sapiens. Liquor and some altered-state plants have knowingly been used by people for at least 5000 years, and probably a lot longer. You think a law can make people change their inherent nature? No, the only effective action is to make all drugs legal. Yeah, sadly, some people will die because of that, but aren’t they dying in droves now?

      An added benefit is that legalization of drugs would eliminate drug cartels and reduce the resulting violence.

      Making drug use a moral issue when it is something inherent in the human condition is a huge waste of time and resources.

        • GreenAlba June 1, 2019 at 2:14 pm #

          You think no-one ever thinks about these things unless they have an agenda – other than wishing to see the least harm done, that is?

          I’ve thought about it heaps and neither I nor my children take drugs (apart from moderate amounts of alcohol and none of us has anything to gain from drugs being either legal or illegal. But it doesn’t stop any of us from thinking long and hard about what Beantown said. It’s a valid argument. It may not be any more valid than its opposite, which is why I’ve never come down definitively on either side, but such is the human condition. Sometimes there isn’t a right answer.

          Tate,
          Make all drugs legal? How about legal and cheap. There is a segment of the population, and I am not speaking of race, which, once becoming a regular user, becomes not only useless to society, but provides a host of negatives. Providing the wherewithal for their destructive habits will result in two things…a massive reduction in crime, as well as a relatively swift die off of their population. Recidivism is considerable, treatment beyond the resources of our society, and EFFECTIVE treatment non-existent

          The truly intelligent will view their condition as an object lesson. There will be a reaping of consequences sooner or later…As Ronald Reagan said regarding the protesters in Berkeley that wanted bloody confrontation…” …well, let’s get it over with, then”.

          No one wants to see the pain and horror, but it is inevitable.

        I disagree. I have friends whose lives were completely destroyed by addiction. This is a careless and dangerous idea. No doubt humans have been finding ways of getting high since the beginning. And sure many people can recreationally use substances without becoming addicted but many people can’t. I’m not sure what the perfect solution would be but Bill I don’t think blanket legalization is one. Why not eradicate the cartels and gangs and those who profit from addiction? You care about people so please think about this.

          You get this…”eradicate the cartels and gangs and those who profit from addiction”

          You want to eliminate vast numbers of bootleggers? Make liquor legal.

          Considering our ineffectual 50 year war on drugs…is it time to do something different?

          • SoftStarLight June 2, 2019 at 1:53 pm #

            Yes liquor is legal but alcoholism is still a serious problem in society. It would definitely be a positive if legalization ended the cartels and gangs. But if alcohol is any example it won’t bring an end to addiction and there will be more of it most likely. Maybe nothing can be done to stop some peoples self destructive behavior. But it causes lots of problems and it seems like its in our best interest to try and figure it out.

I went outside Time as we usually experience it, and saw where it would lead, time collapsed and I just saw the whole tragedy all at once. Once the sickness lessened and abated, I’d be addicted, my brain permanently altered. Even if I could give it up, I’d be jonesing for it the rest of my life. And the giving up would be frightful.

            There is a very rare type who just used heroin or morphine to calm themselves and to be able to function in the real world – some of them successful professional men. In other words, they didn’t keep upping the dose to get the same High. Needless to say, I was not one of these.

    Just watching an add wanting money to support a group cleaning up the trash, especially plastics, from the oceans. A wonderful effort by two young me.

    I wonder where they are putting the tons and tons of trash that they are recovering. I question that because the oceans have always been the site of last resort for the discard of just about every form of human waste.

    I hope what they are pulling out is finding a recycle site. I have heard however that there is so much recycling that the demand has collapsed and recycle centervare discarding just like everyone else.

        True, benr, but all plastics don’t make their way to recycling depots. Only a fraction of plastic water bottles are recycled.

        I watch staff in eating establishments – especially those with more plastic waste – chucking it all together in with the landfill refuse. And I see plastic bottles sticking out of street waste bins everywhere I go.

        I watched a fascinating series of programmes on modern and less modern landfill sites a while ago (yes, I know, I’m far gone) and they discovered some bacteria like these in a landfill site – it seemed they’d mutated spontaneously to munch plastic waste – but it doesn’t happen overnight.

      Whereas it nurtures outstanding gentlemen?

      • GreenAlba June 2, 2019 at 9:46 am #

        My confusion in these matters of double standards tends to centre round how all these young gentlemen are supposed to sow their wild oats if the young ladies aren’t allowed to.

        It presupposes the existence of a cohort of lesser women who exist specifically to oblige the young men, but who shouldn’t expect to be among the blessed who inherit the promiscuous shaggers and possibly their social diseases – and even the random fruits of their wild oat sowing – for keeps (or not).

        No hypocrisy at all. As ever. Unless they just shag one another of course, which would at least sort out the maths.

        Another area where one should remember there won’t always be antibiotics.

          GA, there used to be a cohort of older “experienced” gals to satisfy the sowing of those wild oats. There still are but they’re pathologized as ‘preying on the young’ lol in the current year.

          Then too there were Houses of Ill Fame which operated more or less in the open where a young man could go if all else failed. With early 20th century Progressivism & its “Good Government” jag against police corruption, that got squashed as well. Funny how the Sexual Liberation movement came along in the nick of time…

          • GreenAlba June 3, 2019 at 6:03 am #

            I’m perfectly aware of what the arrangements have been since the beginning of time, Tate.

            What I find unacceptable is the hypocrisy. What difference does it make if the cohort of ‘gals’ is older or younger?

            It hasn’t taken till now for the hypocrisy to be obvious. Thomas Hardy showed how Tess of the D’Urbervilles died of societal hypocrisy.

          • Tate June 3, 2019 at 11:21 am #

            No, actually she died because a noose snapped her neck. The reason a noose snapped her neck was for the crime of murder.

    Arctic Fox from an Oil Rig, biting Netanyahu up his Ass, and Kabbalistic Madonna. Part 2

    I ended the previous post with a description of the Knesset’s self-dissolution on the personal instructions of Netanyahu, after the latter discovered that all his confidants on negotiations on the creation of a coalition government are participating in the plot of the Black World Project and are negotiating only to delay time and allow Israeli President Reuven Rivlin to form an alternative government.

    In this situation, repeated elections are the lesser of evils, since Netanyahu can win them despite the threat of arrest on several allegations of corruption, which are the same means of political blackmail just like the case of cooperation of the Trump election campaign with Russian intelligence.

    And participation of Madonna personally reminded me of the sad fate of Socrates, who was killed by the judicial process by people who were then called Sophists, later Gnostics, and now Democrats.

    And now Hillary Clinton is the unsurpassed master of sophistry, whom I called Bastinda due to the fact that supporters of Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012 called her “The Wicked Witch of the West” from Frank Baum’s children’s novel “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”, which during the Great Depression gained immense religious and political significance, and Barack Obama himself was rumored to participate in the creation of this video:

    youtube.com/watch?v=T5ayK694PZI

    And apparently, Frank Baum himself laid this meaning in his story initially, and the first two intersections of this story with the Rammstein video “Deutschland” consist in the fact that the mother of Frank Baum comes from that very district of London, where in the 12th – 16th centuries were the statues of the black Madonnas that were associated not only with the Templars, but also with the Order of the Cistercians, for which they were burned by the “commissars” of King Henry the VIII in 1538 during the Dissolution of the Monasteries.

    Moreover, this term is absolutely not adequately translated into Russian as “Tudor secularization”, and Henry the VIII more or less successful attempt to restore the Orthodox Churches of England, in Russia for some reason is considered Reformation and Protestantism.

    And there is every reason to believe that Baum shared the opinion of these “commissars” about these Madonnas, portraying them in his stories as witches.

    But this intersection does not end there, as Madonna was clearly out of the voice to say the least and took quite a few false notes during her performance in Israel, and she knew that she would be false, and an automatic frequency control was put on the microphone, which only worsened the situation, since Madonna fake too much because of a cold or a very strong cold. In America, all music critics have already gone nuts, discussing who allowed her to perform in this condition, and I want to ask another question: “Who and why made her perform in such a condition?”

    youtube.com/watch?v=rhyUEYLD15s

    And the answer to the second question is the only one – this speech was of great importance for the very religious and political forces, compared with which Madonna is just a insignificant bug, and the Israeli Prime Minister is an object of manipulation, on the outcome of which depends not only Israel’s existence, but the Greater Middle East, since Israel is not going to test in practice Iran’s promise to destroy it and respond experimentally to the third question: “Will Iran deliver a devastating blow to Israel if it has a nuclear weapon?”

    As Golda-Meir said: “Israel does not have nuclear weapons, but if it is necessary, Israel will use them.”

    And believe me, in this matter Netanyahu is her faithful student.

    Having understood these rather obvious things, let us turn to things that are not so obvious.

    First of all, what are these cylinders, which are dragged along with the fake-singing, and even the one-eyed Madonna-Kabbalist, whose performance in Israel is broadcast to the whole world?

    Given the facts set out below, the answer to this question is only one – these are the terracotta cylinders of the king of the Sumerian city of Lagash named Gudea, on which he four and a half thousand years ago ordered the Sumerian epic to be written, and the one-eyed Madonna depicts Sumerian goddess Lamashtu, who in Slavic mythology is known as Liho or Mara, and in Kabbalah, which Madonna is so fond of, this goddess is called Lilith.

    Well, after that the fourth intersection with the Rammstein video “Deutschland” is cast in granite and becomes a control shot at the head of King Herod, since Lilith was one of the statues in the home town of King Herod in Petra, after seeing which the founder of the Templar Order decided to bring it to Europe, because one of them portrayed the patron saint of Troy, the refugees from which allegedly founded both Rome and the Royal Merovingian dynasty.

    And finally the circle closes, if we recall that the Templar statute was written by the founder of the Cistercian order “saint” Bernard of Clairvaux after the statue of the Black Madonna immediately before the liturgy in front of numerous spectators gave him a stream of breast milk under pressure that sprinkled from her breasts right into his open mouth.

    And Hitler acquired the hatred of Jews after talking to the Jerusalem mufti, who sent him to the Spear of Fate, from which the ghost emerged and explained to Adolph why all Jews must be destroyed.

    Hitler left this record in his diary, which was declared fake by an “expert”, who a little earlier became famous for proving that all icons of Andrei Rublev were fake.

    No takers on the 1 to 100 sum? I think it was Euler who did it in a few seconds, confounding his instructor.

    Here’s the secret: Lay the numbers out in your mind from 1 to 100.
    Under those numbers reverse the order, 100 down to 1. Each column adds to 101. Multiply by 100. Divide by two. 5050 is the answer.

    Same with 1 to 1000.

        But the plague of politics only infects the use of mathematics and its interpretation, the actual mathematics itself unable to be contaminated remaining stoically immune.

        The exponential or natural growth equation is a simple and powerful delight. In basic calculus, the seemingly simple integral of 1/x dx can’t be evaluated by the ‘usual’ means. The natural exponential function allows us to do so.

        If it’s a ‘small’ lake, after processing losses, about e^3.14159265359 days. Or thereabouts.

    “Hitler didn’t want to exterminate the Jews at the time, he wanted to expel the Jews. And Haj Amin al-Husseini went to Hitler and said, ‘If you expel them, they’ll all come here.’ ‘So what should I do with them?’ he asked. He said, ‘Burn them.’”

        I ran into an old classmate, he told me he’d been working for a shipping company, stationed in Madagascar.

        Madascar was a big pirate haven in the late 17th century, with links to Boston, Newport, and ‘specially NYC, where they’d ship slave labor captured in the African interior. It was also a place where pirates would rest up, drink grog, and chase wenches before raiding Mughal and East India Company ships in the Indian Ocean and the Red Sea. The hauls of loot were huge, setting these pirates up for life.

    Well, and the second part of Madonna’s performance is explained by the fact that Madonna, in addition to Kabbalah, became fond of Sufism and even made a video about the culture of whirling dervishes, which became the basis of the Ottoman Empire, declaring Lamashtu-Lilith the primary source of such a notion as Dajjal, the Islamic false Messiah Antichrist.

    I was wondering, are you driving down to London to greet President Trump and give him a warm welcome? What is it, about 1/2 hour drive from Scotland to London in that little island country of yours?
