      The exhausting toils of the holidays are behind us; the mischief that could be done by the lame ducks in Congress has been done ($1.7 trillion Omnibus Spending Bill); and the time has come for the citizens of this land to get some answers about the escalating trips laid on them by their own government. The House of Representatives is in new hands. You’ll know in pretty short order whether they are capable, trustworthy hands, or just a blur of fast fingers running another three-card-monte table.

     The most pressing questions abide around justice, and the gavel of the Judiciary Committee passes from the barely-alive Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) to the very animated Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). He needs to ask FBI Director Chris Wray how it came to be that the Bureau sat in possession of the Hunter Biden laptop during the impeachment of January 2020 and did not offer up to the defense the exculpatory evidence it abundantly contained in the way of business deal memos between the Biden family and officials in several foreign lands, Ukraine in particular. After all, the impeachment hinged on a telephone inquiry Mr. Trump made about just those matters. Was there a good reason for that phone call, or not? Obviously, there was, and Mr. Wray’s conduct looks like obstruction of justice in the highest degree.

     Rep. James Comer (R-KY) comes in as chair of the House Oversight and Reform Committee. He announced months ago that he would hold hearings on interesting issues such Hunter Biden’s taxes and exactly who has paid to support his new career as an “artist.”

We’ve got national security concerns with respect to Hunter Biden. We want to know if you remember who bought that expensive artwork when he was an artist for about three days and sold the artwork for half a million dollars. We want to know why the Russian oligarchs who paid Hunter Biden money were mysteriously left off the sanctions list when Joe Biden started putting sanctions on Russians and Russian oligarchs. We’ve got a lot of questions about shady business dealings that Hunter had and whether or not they impacted the Biden administration.

     Next Mr. Wray has to answer for the FBI’s infiltration of social media. How did the top lawyer at the FBI, Jim Baker, come to be employed as the right-hand to Twitter’s chief censor, Vijaya Gadde? How did all those former FBI agents land at the company along with Jim Baker, and what did Mr. Wray have to do with the FBI demands to censor news and persons on matters of critical national importance such as vaccine safety and election fraud? How did more than a hundred former federal agents land on Facebook, Google, and other platforms? How did Mr. Wray decide to shut down the avenues of the First Amendment to the Constitution?

     Next up: Attorney General Merrick Garland. On what grounds are pre-trial January 6 Riot suspects being held in the decrepit DC federal lockup without bail on rinky-dink charges two years after the event? How does that square with American due process of law? What did he know about the existence of the Hunter Biden laptop and the evidence it contained? What is he doing about it? How did Mr. Garland happen to target for prosecution parents protesting school board policies on race and sexual matters? Of course, Mr. Garland is going to evade answering by using the ploy that all these questions “pertains to ongoing investigations.” Mr. Jordan had better hire a gutsy chief counsel with some brains to penetrate that bodyguard of lies.

      If the Special Subcommittee on the January 6 Riot is disbanded, turn the matter over to the Andy Biggs’ Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security. Let’s hear from Nancy Pelosi’s staff as to why her office (of the Speaker) turned down offers from the Trump White House for national guard protection that day. Let’s also hear from the then-chief of the Capitol Police, Steven Sund, who resigned from that job two days later — in consternation or disgrace? Bring back Mr. Wray and Mr. Garland. How many federal agents were circulating in the crowd the night before and on the day of the January 6 riot? Why was one Ray Epps never indicted for his much-recorded incitements to enter the Capitol? Who opened the magnetically-locked doors from the inside of the building? Stuff like that. What was the decision process for not charging officer Michael Byrd in the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt?

      I hope it’s not too impertinent to suppose that the January 6 Riot was engineered by our government to embarrass and punish its political opponents — taking advantage of the First Amendment “right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances,” which was what that crowd had come to do in Washington DC that day. Interesting how a little tweaking here and there turned that into a convenient fiasco. Entrapment, anyone? And how government control and interference over social media and corporate news reinforced the narrative that the stage-managed riot was “an insurrection” — one of many actual “big lies” of our time nurtured by our government against its citizens.

     A few other inquiries in this new Congress that need to commence ASAP: Can we hear from Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas as to how come the US-Mexican Border is absolutely wide open; why his employees are transporting illegal aliens all around the USA; why he is running a program in Mexico to give Venezuelans and other select alien nationals “advanced authorization” and “two years parole,” then sneaking them into the USA through regular ports-of-entry?

     Then there is the enormous looming storm-cloud of questions over Covid-19: its origin; the botched trials of the mRNA “vaccines;” the management of the emergency in 2020 by Dr. Anthony Fauci, Deborah Birx, and many others; the role of two other principals hiding in the shadows for three years, epidemiologist Ralph Baric of the University of North Carolina, and Peter Daszak of the EcoHealth Alliance; the demonization of early treatment protocols with safe and FDA-approved Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine to maintain the Emergency Use Authorization that protects the mRNA vaxx-makers companies from liability; the fudging of numbers and scrapping of web pages containing incriminating data at the CDC under Rochelle Walensky; the rising cases of disability and death now presenting via insurance company statistics in the absence of agency reporting; and, again, the coercion of social media platforms to conform to official narratives about the so-called pandemic. (Was it really?)

     Then there’s all the darkness surrounding Ukraine, our 51st state, as measured by the amount of taxpayer money funneled into it…. A lot of someones got a lot of ‘splainin’ to do about a lot of things in the weeks and months ahead. We’ll be a better country when we start getting some truthful answers.

    Does passage of the Omnibus Spending Bill imply that the majority of the lame ducks in Congress were frequent-flyers on the “Lolita Express”.

    • TPTB-USA January 3, 2023 at 10:11 am #

      What is the logic behind the votes that allowed passage of the Omnibus Spending Bill?

      Were they frequent-flyers (or wannabes) on the “Davos Express”?

      Could the system be starved for money, and the repo window is flying warning flags which the little people can no longer see because it has been moved behind the curtain?

      Something stinks.

  2. Walter B January 2, 2023 at 9:54 am #

    When you talk about our system and the possibilities for justice, I think we all need to kook back in history in order to be able to perceive how the future will play out.

    I watched a Glen Greenwald podcast last night in which he discussed the Kennedy assassination. It was gratifying to see someone that was born yet understand the truth as those of us who were to see it happen before our own eyes always knew. Mamy of us have always seen through the lies and deception and knew what was done that day. Far too many Americans continue to fall for the Mafia Defense where those who are caught red handed in the commission of a crime simply deny, deny, deny, successfully obscuring the truth from those poor sots that require admission of the guilty and/or confirmation from some “official” authority.

    The successful coup of the American government that took place on 22 November 1963 was aided, abetted, and covered up by what has become known as the Deep State in collusion with what was known at the time as Organized Crime. Today these powers have been merged into one and have absorbed the rest of the federal government, just as the Kennedy brother feared. Where is America headed any why is it in a handbasket? I do believe that this year of 2023 will give us all a much clearer picture of that destination as it unfolds.

    • TPTB-USA January 2, 2023 at 10:17 am #

      I think we are entering new territory Walter.

      After the likes of the Twitter revelations, anyone that questions speculation and/or a conspiracy theory needs to be brought before some type of “Jan. 6th committee”, as a sufficient number of the DC residents have not only discredited themselves, but until proven otherwise, have discredited all of the residents of DC.

    • Beryl of Oyl January 2, 2023 at 10:24 am #

      Yes sometimes a younger person isn’t clouded by what they think they know from memory, and can help us get a clearer look, or confirm to us what we know.

      A co-worker and I were once trying to explain what Watergate was to a woman in her early twenties, who kept hearing that term on the radio because one of the prominent figures had died or something.

      Both I and my colleague realized at the same time that we did not have a good answer as to why it ever happened in the first place.

      • JohnAZ January 2, 2023 at 10:43 am #

        Ha, to your question.

        I was there and I remember that Watergate was a big deal to a lot of my wife’s female friends.

        They were incensed that Judge Sirica would interrupt their chain of soap operas every day for six months.

        It was another fiasco chain of Deep Staters trying to nail someone without implicating themselves in the same pile of s*&t.

        Was plausible deniability invented then? It runs DC today!

        • Beryl of Oyl January 2, 2023 at 10:50 am #

          “It was another fiasco chain of Deep Staters trying to nail someone without implicating themselves in the same pile of s*&t.”

          That’s what New York State government constantly tries to do to Donald Trump.

          Good way of putting it.

          • pyrrhus January 2, 2023 at 11:56 pm #

            It was a CIA op to get the Democrats’ list of prostitutes and clients for blackmail purposes…No one ever told Nixon or Congress until a year or two later…

          • justanotherguy January 3, 2023 at 12:59 pm #

            can’t forget the artful “limited hangout” invented by the liddy crew.

            that maneuver then is like comparing the Wright flyer to the space shuttle when looking at the level of public manipulation these days.

            “its easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled.”

            if we get over the hurdle of breaking all this into broad public awareness, the cascade of failing personal and public narratives will be a thing to behold.

            i’m not holding my breath.

        • Uncle Bob January 2, 2023 at 11:04 am #

          That was my mom’s big complaint, too. She was a Nixon voter anyway and she hated Democrats, but the big sin was “knocking my stories off the air.”

          If you believe G. Gordon Liddy, the book “Silent Coup” was the closest to what happened. One part that’s generally glossed over in the media is that golden boy John Dean was plowing a bimbo whose roommate was the madam of a prostitution ring that serviced Democrat politicians. Some incriminating evidence involving Dean ended up in the hands of someone from the FNC, as I recall, so the Wayergate break-in was really more about covering John Dean’s, uh, ass than it was Nixon’s, at least at the beginning.

          I’ve always thought the 18-minute gap in the tapes was where Nixon and maybe others discussed the Deep State’s activities and/or explained why they did what they did in case they needed evidence. To me, that’s the only reason Nixon kept those tapes around.

          • Jarek January 2, 2023 at 12:25 pm #

            There’s one tape of Nixon and Billy Graham in the oval office whispering about the Jews taking over. Whispering! One is reminded of Trump retweeting covid skeptics in the early days of so called pandemic – while standing like a cigar store Indian behind Birx and Fauci during the day.

            Read C.S Lewis’ “That Hideous Strength” to understand. These men were right to be afraid perhaps, but if so, what were they doing in office?

            Of course they could rightly respond, The People will never believe us and never accept the Truth. Yes. Democracy is hopelessly flawed. They only understood that once they were in? Or that’s only when they began to care?

          • TPTB-USA January 2, 2023 at 1:04 pm #

            “… while standing like a cigar store Indian behind Birx and Fauci during the day. ”

            Consider the contrast between Trump’s bewilderment and Biden’s decisiveness on anything covid. Whats that all about?

            Are you in the loop?

          • Alzaebo January 2, 2023 at 4:12 pm #

            If I remember rightly, that 18-minute gap was Hillary’s to entry ticket into the game. She was a young Nixon staffer, the intern who revealed the gap.

            Alzaebo— that’s not so. She was a young lawyer on the Staff of the Senate Watergate Committee. — JHK Admin

          • Islander January 3, 2023 at 1:40 pm #

            Confusion re Hillary may arise because she did start out as a Republican and a Nixon supporter.

            Time mag had this graf about her:

            “The daughter of a Republican father and a Democratic mother, in 1960 13-year-old Hillary Rodham canvassed for Richard Nixon on Chicago’s South Side. She also worked as a “Goldwater girl” in the 1964 presidential election — cowgirl outfit and all — and was elected president of the Wellesley Young Republicans as a freshman the following year. “I’m a heart liberal, but a mind conservative,” she wrote to a high school friend during college. By graduation, the young leader had decided to follow her heart, stepping down from her GOP post because of her views on civil rights and the Vietnam War and throwing her support behind Eugene McCarthy for President. In 1972, she campaigned for unsuccessful presidential hopeful George McGovern — with the help of her new boyfriend, Bill Clinton. ”

            Oddly enough, in her Commencement speech, in 1969, she mentioned “Before the days of the media orchestrated demonstrations, . . . ”

            Odd . . . Were demos against, say, the Vietnam war “orchestrated”?

        • Alfred January 2, 2023 at 12:11 pm #

          Yes, along with the phrase, “appearance of impropriety.”

          LOL… I think I can empathize and might be incensed if all my laptop’s browser bookmarks were hacked and replaced with Jim’s bi-weekly political blather.

      • Paula D January 2, 2023 at 11:02 am #

        Indeed, the Official Story of that was a bit odd.

        Later on we found out that it was a Deep State takedown of Nixon, for some still unclear reason.

        The whole “blow their heads off in public” thing was wearing thin, after the open assassinations of the 60s, so they used Watergate to take down Nixon and the Iranian hostages to take down Carter.

        And the entire Mighty Wurlitzer combined with Congress and the Deep State (and now the “Justice system”) to take down Trump.

        • Uncle Bob January 2, 2023 at 11:06 am #

          Wrong. Carter was owned by the Left’s money men (see: Bert Vance, BCCI, etc.). He was an early attempt to castrate America, which was finally achieved under your heroes Obama and Biden.

          • CrusherMuldoon January 2, 2023 at 12:52 pm #

            Wrong! It’s Bert LANCE

          • justanotherguy January 3, 2023 at 1:08 pm #

            BCCI – anybody else remember adnan khoshoggi? from wiki (flawed mess that it is):

            “Khashoggi was born in Mecca, to Mohammad Khashoggi, who was King Abdul Aziz Al Saud’s personal doctor,[5] and Samiha Ahmed. Khashoggi’s sister was author Samira Khashoggi who married businessman Mohamed Al-Fayed and was the mother of Dodi Fayed.[6] Another sister, Soheir Khashoggi, is a well-known Arab novelist (Mirage, Nadia’s Song, Mosaic).[6] He was a paternal uncle of murdered journalist, Jamal Khashoggi.”

            poor Jamal just went to pieces – sins of the father, uncle et al….

            the elites watch each other’s backs until they don’t.

            a worthwhile project would be to get them all to betray them all, and off each other until it can no longer remain hidden.

            i think that project is occurring naturally, but not fast enough. their time is nearing its end because the universe abhors contradictions as much or more than power abhors a vacuum.

        • Beryl of Oyl January 2, 2023 at 11:30 am #

          The part we could not explain is why Nixon even believed he needed to resort to extraordinary measures in that election.

          He had it in the bag.

          • Paula D January 2, 2023 at 11:48 am #

            We don’t even know if Nixon actually approved the operation.

            What we do know is that it was botched so badly that it looked like a setup from the get-go.

          • Walter B January 2, 2023 at 12:44 pm #

            I’ve always believed the story that Howard Hunt blackmailed Nixon when he was in the can threatening Nixon with revealing “that Bay of Pig’s Thing” which when told to Halderman, sent him into a tirade.

          • Paula D January 2, 2023 at 1:45 pm #

            Yes, and here are two more weird things, Hunt’s wife being murdered by taking down an entire airliner, and Martha Mitchell being kidnapped to prevent her from talking.

            WTF? If we’d had the internet back then, we would know exactly what actually happened.

            But we didn’t. The Mighty Wurlitzer was unopposed, so they got away with it.

            And that is why they are censoring social media now, and want to make information sharing so difficult, even criminalizing dissent or heresy.

          • Paula D January 2, 2023 at 1:48 pm #

            And Walter B, we know that JFK wasn’t told about the Bay of Pigs beforehand.

            There is no doubt in my mind that Nixon was in on the planning before he left office. He was still buddy-buddy with those CIA dudes in the 70s.

            So if JFK didn’t know about the Bay of Pigs, then I can believe that Nixon didn’t know about Watergate.
            A different bunch of thugs took him down.

          • MaryQueen January 2, 2023 at 11:09 pm #

            But we have the internet now, and they still do these things, and it’s worse than ever, because more people believe the Official Story.

            So how is the internet helping us?

          • Islander January 3, 2023 at 1:46 pm #

            Per Russell Baker, Family of Secrets (2009), IIRC, Nixon was taken down by Bush Sr./CIA because he was getting too interested in seeing classified docs relating to Dallas.

            Great book.
            Baker was the first investigative journalist I know of who went after the deep state—but it wasn’t yet called that.

            He still has his website, WhoWhatWhy?, but seems to have been overtaken in some sense by people like Whitney Webb and Glenn Greenwald. Perhaps he is not the right fit with all of the videos people put out nowadays.

            He has definitely done very good work.

          • Islander January 3, 2023 at 1:47 pm #

        The evidence of shots from the front has been there from Day One at the very moment.

          Having walked the plaza and been up to the “snipers” nest, the grassy nole is where I’d have been. No question about it. I don’t care how thick of a commission book you publish. You walk that plaza and see how far the second floor window is, and how shockingly close the back nole fence is, and then try to grasp a guy using a poorly made carbine shooting a moving target from that far away window. You come to the conclusion pretty fast. No way.

      Fletcher Prouty, who was there when the Deep State was organized, helping to coordinate the military and the newly formed CIA, called it the Secret Team.

      Of course, back then it was a team, a group of men in the military, CIA, and the government, colluding with each other to control the US government and overthrow disobedient governments abroad.

          There’s a financial talking head on CNBC named Tyler Mathisen. Peter said back in high school they would beat the shit out of any guy named Tyler or certain other names. I think Bruce was one of them. No other reason, just the pansy name.

          The opposite is knowing that a person is destined for success simply because he has an interesting name.

          Take this past Saturday. The Georgia Bulldogs (ranked #1 in the country) played against Ohio State (ranked #4). OS lead 41 to 24 at the end of the third quarter. Georgia came back to win the game 42 – 41. As far as I was concerned it was a given that this would be the outcome.

          Why? Because Georgia has a quarterback named Stetson Bennett IV. This very cool name alone accounts for the win. I especially like that he was the Fourth just as my brother Armand was the Third.

            Interesting theory, Q. Man. Can’t say I’ve ever heard that one before. Bennet has seemed to play over his head since winning the QB job last year. He was a walk on as a freshman who transferred out to a JuCo for one year before transferring back in again and eventually winning the job from a highly touted USC transfer, J.T. Daniels. I don’t think he’s regarded as an NFL prospect.

            Until I met your brother – virtually, of course, via his brother – “Armand” had always been – to my mind – some rich pansy, sipping California red wine.

            Now I recognize Armand III as being someone too goddamn sophisticated for this world. Someone who hot-tubs with supermonkeys and supermodels. Stay thirsty my friend.

            i remember the cartoons just prior, where superheros like superman were often caught in moral dilemmas, then the commercial break at the cliffhanger moment.

            oh for the days of looney tunes – utterly un-politically correct, completely just for laughs and the art of it…

            it was the formative moment of my young brain – what would superman do?

            answer – he always did the right thing. always.

            the next gen of cartoons was flat out degenerate – that irritating virus song from “Groovie Goolies” that got repeated every episode – and our idiot babysitter insisted on that shit *every fraking day*.

        The present logjam over selecting the House Speaker this week is yet another red flag ? waving in the breeze boldly telling us that the Republic is about to fly off the rails again.

        The historians state that an inability to elect a Speaker on the first balloting only has happened a handful of times in the history of the Republic. One of those times was in 1855 during the lead-up to the War for Southern Independence. The country was highly unstable at the time and is took way over 100 votes to produce a winner. That sort of gridlock sure does resemble the sort we have in DC today.

        I fully expect this union to come flying apart again while I’m still above ground. The manner may be a bit different and way less formal than the secession winter of 1860-61, but fly apart it will.

        The center cannot hold.

      No, it won’t.

      I believe that we are going to see a big increase, perhaps a doubling of deaths from suicide, overdose, violence, and “Sudden Adult Death Syndrome”. I think that Deagal report might have some validity.

      There have been more and more busts of Fentanyl laced pills and other CDS coming across the open border and causing great problems for our already taxed systems. As a local CERT Team member, I have taken many classes dealing with subjects such as Human Trafficking, dealing with “anxious young adults, and a 7-hour course on being an Adult Mental Health First Aider, all of which delved into growing and serious problems that are plaguing our communities.

      Those of us on the inside of our government and our systems are privy to much more than the average citizen is, though communicating to the public does not seem to be what we do much of at all. Guess I have a big mouth. Of course, broadcasting to a general public that will state that the death of a seventy-year-old person is too soon and tragic while teens through 50-year-old people dying from heart attacks out of nowhere is acceptable.

        Assisted suicide is now big in Canada. I assume it will be coming here – even for “mature” minors. Maybe they’ll get one or two Zoom counseling sessions to determine this is what they really want to do. That’s all it take for trannification after all.

        And once the kids on Lupron find out that they will now never be either men or women, perhaps they will make for the nearest Exit.

            Farmgal,

            Your analogy is spot on and make me tear up. Our dog is 16 and at death’s door. Kidney failure. We have been getting her weekly sub-cutaneous shots of saline plus vitamins for a year now. I got the three year rabies booster six months ago as required by law. But the administrators at the vet office started to hassle me about the other vaccines. I had them mark her chart. No vaccines, She’s dying. Don’t bother her parents. I was livid.

    • Night Owl January 2, 2023 at 10:56 am #

      Just one, at present, as many things are too hazy.

      We will see another massive uptick in excess mortality from the poison shots.

      We are currently at 20% (reported that is) in Germany, which is absolutely unprecedented.

      This will continue for the next few years as people’s immune systems give out, and cancers, heart problems, and other diseases make a field day of the situation.

      • mrs_saj January 2, 2023 at 11:54 am #

        Hi All,

        I’d like to talk for a moment about the all cause death rate being up by 20%. On its face this sounds extraordinary. From a statistical analysis perspective, this IS extraordinary. As has been mentioned on this blog before, this reality is something life insurance companies don’t even test or model for, its so off the charts, statistically.

        However.

        You knew there was a however, didn’t you?

        I want to emphasize, this is not a 20% death rate. THAT would be impossible to hide or ignore. This is a 20% increase in the death rate.

        What does that mean? What is the US death rate?

        Well, according to the CDC (ha ha, I can hear you laugh), the numbers for 2020 are the latest available and in that year 3,383,729 people died in the US. This equates to 1,027 people per 100,000 of the population. So, a 20% increase is 205 additional people per 100,000 for a total of 1,232 people per 100,000 of population. In aggregate, it is 676,745 extra people dying each year on top of the 3.3 Million.

        Pardon me for saying, but spread across 12 months and 50 states, this is a piece of cake for the government to hide and the media to ignore.

        The average person (who of course has taken on average two of these shots) will never see this nor do they want to.

        Some of the people who die are over 65 and thus their deaths are less noticeable because they are less statistically rare. Some of the people who die are criminals or drug addicts and their deaths are less traumatizing to the public so to speak.

        Ed Dowd has a theory that at the other end of the spectrum, if enough people are killed off at the peak of their productive careers, there will be market dislocations. The recent Southwest debacle may be a good example, I don’t know.

        I just think we are going to be stuck with unacknowledged higher death rates for a long time. Unless there is some breakthrough and the main stream media grows a conscience and starts digging into what is happening at life insurance companies and mortuaries.

        I still remember the week of July 19, 2021. I got into it with my neighbor (she’s a VP in corporate HR for a construction company) about the vaxxes. That was the first week, according to my information, that the vaxxes killed more people than the virus did. I will never forget the way she looked at me. Absolute incredulity. She quoted things from the CDC. I quoted from the CDC that 94% of Covid deaths had 2.6 comorbidities and only 6% of the Covid deaths were caused strictly by Covid. She denied the CDC had ever published such a thing. She sent me a ridiculous group of videos that day from healthaction .org about how wonderful the vaxx was. She had convinced her husband and two daughters (22 and 20) to all get vaccinated. We have stayed friendly, because I refuse to get into a war with my neighbor. She has NEVER come back to me and asked what the heck is going on, even though there is far more content available today in the alt-media about the vaxx related deaths and disability. This is who we are dealing with.

        I don’t fare well in predicting the future. The is just seems to be the beginning of a long slog as far as the adverse events from the vaxxes go.

        • Beryl of Oyl January 2, 2023 at 12:15 pm #

          Your neighbor and her entire family are fully vaxxed by her insistance. She can’t afford to contemplate such things and is in denial. My sister (fully vaxxed) had covid twice in 2022 and three other viruses in quick succession since November. She is always sick. I suspect she is going to become so run down if this continues that a minor virus is going to carry her off. I don’t mention things like impaired immune systems to her, as it’s too late to do any good and would just be cruel. She keeps herself carefully ignorant, and I suspect many of those who fell for the vaxxes are reacting in a similar fashion.

          • mrs_saj January 2, 2023 at 2:13 pm #

            Sorry to hear about your sister. The thing that boggles me is these people can at least stop taking the shots. And maybe they have stopped. The uptake on the 2nd booster (4th shot) is much lower than the other shots.

            But why don’t they say anything? Why aren’t they asking public questions about how to detoxify? The detransitioners, God bless them, are loudly calling out about how their transitions weren’t the solution they thought they’d be.

            2 of my sisters are constantly sick now. Every time I talk to either on the phone, they have a deep, croaky voice but you know, if they hadn’t gotten the jab it would be MUCH worse.

          • MaryQueen January 2, 2023 at 7:39 pm #

            Yeah I don’t say anything to mine, either.

            What would be the point?

        • Paula D January 2, 2023 at 2:06 pm #

          Thank you for that, Mrs. Saj. I read it out loud to my husband. I

          We were talking the other day and he said to me that it doesn’t actually seem like a lot more people are dying. And people are still having babies.

          But as you say, the numbers are not actually that big and spread out over an entire population and a 3,000 mile wide country, and who is going to notice?

          Like Dimitri Orlov said about the massive drop of population in Russia in the 90s, people are always dying and babies are always being born.
          Why would you notice that more people are dying and fewer babies being born?
          You wouldn’t. And we aren’t.

          • mrs_saj January 2, 2023 at 3:11 pm #

            Paula D,

            You are helping me understand an important point. Statistical significance is not the same as noticeability and I should quit conflating the two.

          • Jarek January 2, 2023 at 5:47 pm #

            This is a point I’m always bringing up with the ladies: Statistics matter. He said, she said, your friends and family – all of that is not going to take the place of statistics.

            You may be unusual and thus have unusual friends and family. Another bomb: Most people aren’t “normal”, normal being an abstraction – but an essential one.

          • Suburban_elk January 2, 2023 at 6:42 pm #

            My experience is that more people are dying, by a lot. Some of these deaths are being attributed to alcoholism, but they are organ failure and I suspect that it is from the injections.

            People are noticing and don’t want to (notice).

            And it’s a cruel situation, because talking about it doesn’t help. It’s like pretending is the best option.

          • MaryQueen January 2, 2023 at 7:41 pm #

            Jarek, I have been quoting stats since day 1. And I run into countless MEN using anecdotal accounts.

            Stop already. You sound increasingly unhinged.

          • Suburban_elk January 2, 2023 at 9:55 pm #

            It will be nice if we don’t have to choose, whether patterns are perceived statistically or anecdotally.

          • mrs_saj January 4, 2023 at 4:32 pm #

            I do think statistics matter. And I know a lot of people on this thread absolutely refer to stats. As do i. And let’s not forget, statistics can be manipulated, too. I’ve read some really imbecilic articles about x% of the Covid deaths in New Hampshire are vaccinated and (100-x)% are unvaccinated, so let’s draw conclusions. And I laugh because the article doesn’t tell us what percentage of people in New Hampshire got vaccinated. So duh, there’s no conclusions to draw unless we can see how the death results differ from the New Hampshire population at large.

            But we must also use our anecdotal experience as well. I only know of one person in my acquaintance who “died suddenly”. And I know of one person who was absolutely killed at the hospital by the idiots there following the federal protocols of a ventilator and remdesivir. Other people know a dozen or more folks in their circle who have died suddenly or by design. I learn a lot by listening to others talk of their own experience as well as by reading studies that all of your think are interesting.

            We are expanding our knowledge base together.

        • Paula D January 2, 2023 at 2:09 pm #

          The next comment is about the war in Ukraine.

          Here is something amazing. They are managing to keep the number of dead Ukrainian soldiers secret from the Ukie population!

          You wouldn’t think that would be possible, but they don’t publicize it, they tell the families they are MIA instead of KIA, and the bereaved families are kept from comparing notes.

          The same thing is probably happening here, with the dead mercenaries.

          Same as the vax deaths.

          • draupnir January 2, 2023 at 4:09 pm #

            The difference being that I don’t really care about dead mercenaries. They have no business getting involved, and are being paid for the risks they take.

          • Lyndy33 January 2, 2023 at 5:11 pm #

            How many American Special Forces ‘Advisors to the Ukraine’ are actually there in country? No way of knowing with things the way they are.

          • Paula D January 2, 2023 at 6:40 pm #

            I don’t care about the dead mercenaries either, to tell you the truth.
            I see them in the videos and they seem like scumbuckets.

            But still, how many have died? We have no way of knowing.

            And yeah, we don’t know about the special forces either, or the HIMARRS operators.

            If Americans die and the media doesn’t report it, it didn’t happen.

            Douglas Macgregor: Underestimating Russia Is Bad Idea For The West, Tough Christmas For Ukrainians
            YouTube Video

            If this video is true, it substantiates some of your claims.

            If it is not true, why hasn’t it been removed?

            What is in it for Macgregor?

          • Paula D January 2, 2023 at 7:46 pm #

            They only remove true videos that go against the narrative, for one.
            So they yet remove it.

            For the second, it is my impression that McGregor is motivated by having character, which values truth and honor.

          • TPTB-USA January 2, 2023 at 7:54 pm #

            If it is not Macgregor’s words, then I would think that he would want it down as well.

          • TPTB-USA January 2, 2023 at 11:04 pm #

            The following is a discussion post:

            1. You are confusing “russian speaking” with “ethnic russian” so your premise is wrong from the start. Most people in the former USSR spoke Russian my dude, including in the Baltic countries. It’s called an official language, look it up.
            2. Of course protecting the ethnic Russian (not Russian speaking, actual Russians) was a pretext but the fact is Ukraine did discriminate against these people. They are real people, millions of them and that’s what you fail to understand. They chose Russia because it was the lesser of two evils. And they are not only Russians, they are also Hungarians, Romanians, Bulgarians even, Gagauz, Rroma, etc. These people were discriminated against constantly by the “democratic” authorities from Kiev and used as meatshield against the Russian separatists. Would YOU want to be part of Ukraine when Ukraine’s president incites to violence against you?! And these people didn’t want to be in USSR and then Ukraine, they were taken as war spoils after WW2.
            It’s super annoying to see western people (maybe like yourself) regurgitating mainstream media opinions and giving lessons to us, eastern Europeans who are living these events and are more aware of the situation.
            I need to do my research? Really? I did, it’s called university and I took my “reseach” aka studying history very seriously. Fun fact for you: Novgorod, the first ever Russian state is today in Ukraine…but by all means, continue to lecture me on the ethnic composition of the region…what do I know, only 10 years of university and post grad studies and the fact that I live next to Ukraine.

            **

            I suspect that the majority in the West that support the war in Ukraine, are nothing more than a bunch of twitter ninnies.

          • justanotherguy January 4, 2023 at 1:30 pm #

            TPTB-USA – a lot of what you say is accorded visibility in the minsk accords. i vowed not to type a thing or open my mouth on this subject until i had some understanding of the greater context.

            it is good to see a well informed subject matter expert weighing in, thank you.

            re: minsk accords, it looks like merkel from the start agreed to germany as a guarantor of those accords, in order to delay a reckoning while the ukr grift was growing and making ties to the uk and usa, allowing the neocons in both uk and usa to box in possible action to what we see now – continuing the fight to the last drop of ukr blood.

            any comments on the bad faith participation in minsk agreements, or the specifics of the grift and its visibility from that side?

            FWIW: An assessment from both perspectives.

            Gravitas Plus: Did NATO push Ukraine into war?
            YouTube Video

            From my perspective the Minsk Agreements could have been used by the West as an off-ramp. Cohen, Black, and Chomsky promoted this idea.

            Then one can argue that comments by the West were the trigger that prompted Putin to act.

          That is, I understand the material presented, but I don’t see why it is preceded by “however.”

          BTW, it is the excess death rate in the young—working-age people—that has the insurance cos spooked.

          • mrs_saj January 4, 2023 at 4:46 pm #

            Islander,

            To be clearer, I should have said, “However, statistical significance to the life insurance companies does not mean it is noticeable to the average Joe.”

            That was the overall point I was trying to make. We are experiencing an unprecedented increase in our country’s death rate and yet the citizenry (or half of the citizenry as least) seems contentedly oblivious.

            My apologies for the confusion.

            But a Man arose who crushed the Weimar deviants, those behind them, and those who defended them (antifa) and drove out the Carpetbaggers and those behind them – the International Bankers. And then? Then he enacted the economical miracle of Nazi Germany.

    I like those questions. Clear cut, simple, something any reasonable person has a right to have answers to.

    It reminds me of Hillary and her 11 plus hours of testimony (shouldn’t it be ovarimony?) to alleged seasoned prosecutor Trey Gowdy, in which he skillfully managed not to ask her one single thing of substance, and his hair looked great the whole time.

    It took an unspoiled local reporter in New Hampshire to ask and get an answer to one direct question, to actually expose her in any way over the pure evil surrounding the Benghazi attack.

    She told the families the lie about the Youtube video.

        • Wizard of the Saddle January 4, 2023 at 5:45 pm #

          Like most shysters, Gowdy had the gift of gab, but he proved to be a poser when it came to being a crusading Congressman in search of the truth. For a time he tried to portray himself as “Mr. Smith goes to Washington” but in the end he decided he couldn’t take the heat and so he ran over to FOX News to cash in his chips and become a commentator.

          He has been about as successful at that as he was at getting Democrats sent to prison.

I suspect that the toppling of Khaddafi was part of a pay to play scheme whereby his successor would pay his Western allies some of the billions of newly acquired oil and gas revenue.

        A beautiful mind. Most people’s are so ugly. One poster wrote: All wars are resource wars. How very ugly, but do I say there is no truth there? No. But I protest the absolute nature of the statement, as did Sayyid Qutub in his seminal book, Milestones. To say the Islam conquered the world out of greed is to deny Allah, the Prophet, and the Koran.

        Jarek’s corollary: All marriages are resource marriages. Same caveat. Apparently, according to the pundits, about 10% of women are capable of seeing men as something more than just a piggy bank and a sperm donor.

        • MaryQueen January 2, 2023 at 7:51 pm #

          Your view of relationships is really sad and speaks to the reason you are single.

          While I elected to remain single, it was a choice. I had a few long term relationships and I was the bigger breadwinner in all of them, and I absolutely saw the men as great companions, and neither of us really cared who made more money, etc.

          But then, I’m not a materialistic person. I suspect you are, otherwise you wouldn’t be so obsessed with it.

          • Jarek January 2, 2023 at 9:25 pm #

            No you’re the one making a big deal about money. I ask why women make such a big deal about it because nearly all of them do. I know it’s human biology, but it’s sad that people can’t overcome it when it ceases to apply. Men don’t care, but we are strongly programmed in other ways.

            You must have sought out men that you could have power over. Also men who wouldn’t touch you much – gays and bisexuals as you mentioned before. When they tried to – what was the expression you used – pfft, later. Not very nice. How long could such a thing have lasted?

          @ Jarek:

          Like it or not, marriage is a serious business. It’s purpose is the procreation of children and raising children to capable and well principled adults. Each child requires at least a 20-commitment, as well as a lifelong commitment, though to a lesser degree once the child is independent.

          Due to the very serious nature of marriage and the very high level of responsibility required, both men and women need to think pretty hard about the suitability of the prospective spouse–who will be the father of your children or the mother of your children, as the case may be.

          Financial stability and responsibility certainly enters into this evaluation. You would not, for example, go to work for a company that didn’t manage financial (and other matters) prudently. You’d go to work for a company with a good track record. The same with a business partnership. (And marriage is, at one level, a business partnership.) One consideration in choosing a business partner is whether they are adequately capitalized for the enterprise. Marriage will likewise make some serious demands, money-wise. You’ll want to think about whether the prospective spouse is adequately capitalized for the marriage enterprise–or at least promises to be, due to strength of character.

          Obviously, many other factors enter into selecting a spouse, but the financial angle cannot be neglected. All this would be very clear to you if you had a daughter.

          Jarek, imo your problem with women is not that you don’t make much money. It seems to be your view that human relationships are a battle, and your determination to win each interaction with other human beings. Most people don’t look at everyday innocuous interactions as win/lose situations, but you seem to.

          It is merely annoying on a comment thread, but I can’t imagine how horrible it must have been for your girlfriend to have to deal with your need to win every conversation, your tendency to bring up past fights again, your spontaneous sniping and your non sequitur attacks on unrelated subjects.

          I don’t know what ”pundits” you listen to, but their characterization of women is beyond laughable. In any case, you and your fellow incels can mutter to yourselves on your We Hate Women sites, but your attacks on the women here are missing the mark, because there are no women here who look at men as piggy banks and sperm donors, fyi.

            @ Paula D:

            If you look at the overall pattern, Jarek’s views about women and marriage are rationalizations for his being a decidedly undesirable choice as a spouse or life partner. His reasoning is that, “Women are not interested in me because they are grasping and materialistic.” The corollary to this is that men with jobs, wives, families, and adult responsibilities are slaves to women. So he pretends that he refuses to be a slave to women, when what’s actually going on is that he refuses to get a job, make something of himself, and assume adult responsibilities, when by doing so (in other words, by growing up) he could become a contender in the marriage market. Women find him undesirable because he’s a child who refuses to grow up.

            A number of years ago, one of my daughter’s male friends from high school (then in his late 20s), asked one of his female co-workers at Dollar General for a date. The girl (perhaps unkindly) replied, “You’re not really ‘datable.’ You have a part-time job at Dollar General, you live at home with your parents, you don’t have a car or a driver’s license, and your mom drives you to work.”

            My daughter’s opinion was that, however unkind the girl’s words were, it was something her guy friend needed to hear.

            This is, broadly speaking, Jarek’s predicament. And instead of improving himself, he likes to rail against women’s tendency to be selective in these matters–preferring to date responsible adults–and ascribing this preference to females being greedy and grasping.

            But, like it or not, most women don’t go shopping for a husband down at the rescue mission. Some men are beneath consideration in such matters. It appears that Jarek is one of them.

            Thank you Ant for setting Paula straight: It’s because I don’t have money. If I did, I could have just about anyone.

            Your “antidote” about the dollar store nails: She said no to him because he worked in a dollar store – just like she did! Now if he was manager, maybe, right? As usual, you make my case for me.

            Paula: Thank you for your idealism, but you are obviously not reading Anthea very closely. She has said that men should not get to see their children at all after divorce unless the ex-wife allows it. Sperm donors.

            Now get this: She believes in small government too! You need a strong oppressive state to keep fathers from their kids, right?

  13. PeteAtomic January 2, 2023 at 10:47 am #

    Hi Jim. Thanks for the blog this morning.

    Sadly, I believe you much, much too optimistic.

    You aren’t going to be getting many answers. Moreover, you won’t find any justice.

    The few forthright representatives of the “People” will perhaps churn out a few admissions from various unelected bureaucrats about their misdeeds. Sure.

    However, then what?

    The US public has become a golem, remade in the mass psychotic formation by a State Media which is 110% controlled by various US Intel agencies.

    In other words, the “People” don’t give a shit. The sane and otherwise non-malevolent are fewer, while deranged narcissism grows yearly.

    For example. Get on Twitter. You can see it in real time. One of these admissions of malevolent action comes out publicly, and those who support the Party of Chaos continue cheering. And look– it happens on the other coin of the Uniparty, as well.

    So., I don’t know what the answers are. A societal collapse would certainly “reset” everything: With the destruction of almost everyone past the age of 70, and many under the age of 10.

    That’s not a real solution.

    Perhaps a re-ordering of the political union on North America– with people self-segregating to areas of more or less liberty. I don’t know.

    • Hereward the Woke January 2, 2023 at 12:14 pm #

      I keep on coming back to the quote about things continuing until they no longer can. No individual can save us. Things will indeed continue until the Dems and DS wreck the whole system and take themselves down with it. Then – if we’re lucky – we can build something better.

      • Wizard of the Saddle January 4, 2023 at 5:52 pm #

        Sadly, our only hope seems to lie in the failure of the Republic and the utter collapse of the DS power structure. Only then will their death grip on our society be removed.

        You know the country is well and truly beyond redemption when vast numbers of its citizens have reached such a conclusion.

    • Jarek January 2, 2023 at 1:26 pm #

      Now draw the only possible conclusion: Democracy is contraindicated. Let these animals vote? Are you fucking kidding me? They are stupid and ugly – even if not overtly or covertly evil as some are.

      By way of explication (where did I get that word? The jinn just gave it to me): One poster here is wildly idealistic. Yet at the same time they (lol!) think that matter is everything and that all wars are resource wars. If matter is everything a la Marx, then war is the only sane thing to do. Thus their philosophy contradicts itself in its very essence. Marx was consistent at least, but it falls apart when he thinks any kind of worker’s paradise can be achieved. Why shouldn’t the workers just war amongst themselves in order to get control over the most matter once the owners are disposed of?

      • PeteAtomic January 2, 2023 at 2:08 pm #

        The idea of “progress” is limited by the fundamental realities of human nature.

        There will never be a “paradise” on Earth, for anyone. Unless God wills it.

        Peaceful solutions to political problems ought to be attempted first. So, yes. Vote. The interference on the Public by both State Media devices, and the malevolent role of university education– has been a thumb on the collective scale in public opinion.

        There definitely is a war. It’s an information war. We must be info-warriors (to steal a phrase from Mr. Jones). So. It’s also a spiritual war.

        The State is very good at handling shooting wars. Be careful with that in consideration of societal change. Well. The US may not be so good at shooting wars after 20+ years of Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. I wonder about the morale of the US military. If the populace had a true uprising, it’d be interesting to see how many in uniform would join in. ? I don’t know.

        We need an attempt at a Constitutional Convention, first. Peace first.

    I think the answers to a lot of your questions depends on the power of the Senate and White House on the five or six, maybe more of the RINOs in the House. All the changes desired depends on whether those folks are more concerned about their own futures as related to the future of the Deep State. Washington, DC is one sick puppy!

  15. Beryl of Oyl January 2, 2023 at 10:47 am #

    I want to talk more about government controlled media without getting too meandering, specifically Netflix.

    Netflix started out as a more convenient way for people who couldn’t get out to Blockbuster easily, to watch movies.

    It changed and went all online.

    People started noticing in recent years, especially during the lockdowns, how little they were actually offering to watch.

    They also started spending quite a bit on producing content.

    When people like the Obamas and Prince Harry started to get hired, and there didn’t seem to be enough profit to pay them from, I know very little about business but it should have clued anybody in that they had hidden sources of funding, and the US government was probably involved with that as well as Twitter and the rest.

    Notice right after the Obamas got involved was when Netflix dipped a toe in the waters of child pornography with that Cuties film.

    I could have some details wrong about some of this because I hadn’t watched any Netflix up until recently.

    So, Netflix, CIA, propaganda outlet to push globalism. Also smart TVs spy on you.

      Beryl, Money is at the root of it all – something I haven’t really understood until recently. How is it that the thugs of antifa always have money to turn up everywhere when it’s plain that none of them work? How is it that Hunter Biden sells his “paintings” for vast amounts of money? How is it that piles of bricks are delivered to street corners for the benefit of rioters? How do politicians get rich on their salaries?

      Catherine Austin Fitts has often correctly pointed out that this country is being run as a criminal enterprise. The proof is in the theft of our money, which disappears into a black hole of non-accountability. I don’t know how we can fix this, short of returning to the state our host has predicted for us – a return to living conditions of the early 19th century at best. That’s a steep price to pay but we may pay it whether we agree or not.

      • Beryl of Oyl January 2, 2023 at 11:36 am #

        Hunter didn’t paint those things. It takes some skill to master that, even if you don’t like the stuff he did with it.

        Try blowing ink through a straw and see if you can get anything other than one big splotch.

        Yes, Hunter has a way with a straw, but he has never applied himself to anything at all in his entire like, except not applying himself to anything.

        • Paula D January 2, 2023 at 11:44 am #

          lol, good point, Beryl.

        Rowdy Piglet,

        Check your bible, the love of money is the root of all evil. Big difference. Money is a medium of exchange and a store of value during our time on earth. Evil (the devil, some may call it) resides in people’s hearts.

        The second amendment version of this is guns don’t kill people, people kill people.

        1 Timothy 6:10

        For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs. Berean …

        Hitler painted, Hunter does not? Sad – they are pretty good, as was Hitler’s. One would like to believe he is good at something besides degeneracy.

        He is good at that. In contrast, poor Carlos Danger sent dick pics to underage girls with a lampshade on his head.

      And how did a used book online salesman get so rich?

      And how does Pornhub make billions?

    • MaryQueen January 2, 2023 at 11:51 am #

      Thanks for bringing this up, Beryl.

      I had noticed all of what you say and when I read the Obamas were involved, I ended my subscription. I was already disappointed with their content. All the series are dark murder mysteries usually involving grisly crimes performed on women and children. Yuck. No thanks.

      And then the Cuties thing. I was already gone by then, but I convinced a few other people to leave. They also noticed the content really had tanked.

      It was way better when they were just a hub for renting movies. Now they make them, and who knows what programming is involved.

      Again, no thanks!

      The biggest ‘tell’ IMHO that they are really pushing a way of thinking on the public? The rash of superhero series and movies – which is the only thing that dwarves the depressing serial killer/murder mystery series and movies.

      That’s for a reason! Americans already have a weird sense that some hero is going to save us, so sit back and do nothing. We have that mindset in part because of popular culture, IMHO.

    • mrs_saj January 2, 2023 at 12:09 pm #

      I have never been interested in Netflix as a subscription service, although I do watch their stock. I think you have the general story right. They have raised their prices a few times over the years much to the consternation of their subscribers.

      I don’t know much about any of their series or movies, so I don’t understand many pop culture references. Oh well.

      I don’t know about government funding of Netflix, but I too noticed a shortage of things to watch with video on demand. About 5 years ago there was a wonderful independent video store near my home. They had thousands of DVDs, including film noir, foreign, music videos, new releases, etc. It was always crowded around dinner time especially on weekends. Eventually I started noticing fewer customers and fewer people working there until they finally went out of business. At the same time my current computer doesn’t even have a DVD drive, and I’m hoping my old one doesn’t give up the ghost. We had a few decades of freedom from the tyranny of the big 3 networks and Hollywood studios, and now everything is becoming concentrated again. Don’t get rid of your DVD player or computer with a DVD drive! Also, there are other video on demand players beside Netflix and Prime, such as Criterion that feature a broader array of offerings.

      FWIW, I read an article this weekend about the same concentration taking place in book publishing where a handful of companies publish a large percentage of books, and that many mid and lower level publishers that nurture up and coming authors have been pushed out. The result is that many authors like movie studios concentrate on blockbusters and sequels, and even talented authors are not encouraged or allowed to try something new.

      • Jarek January 2, 2023 at 1:54 pm #

          A lot of old but not that old work is nearly impossible to find.
          I read a tweet from actor James Woods about movies on cable and commercials, and I thought I knew what he was talking about, becase when they used to put old films on television they were full of commercials; but it is worse now on cable.

          I tried to watch a film from the 1970s that I had missed. There were commercials literally every five minutes. It was impossible to watch.

    The Jan.6th Cmte had several goals. The overriding one was to increase the power of those on the committee, obviously. These people are politicians. A second goal was to further attack Trump. The Deep State must continue attacking him.

    However, the underlying goal was this. To send a message to the 90% out there. You fuckers can run rampant in LA, or Minneapolis, or Denver… or wherever, we in government don’t give a shit if you do that… but if you come to the center of the power– and riot on the grounds of where we work– we are gonna put your ass in federal prisons, to the maximally allowable time under the law.

      I think that Putin brought their plight up one time, in answer to the propaganda the US puts out about “political prisoners” in Russia.

      They usually bring up Nalvany, who is in prison for embezzling money from a French corporation, as an example.

      Meanwhile, men languish in horrendous conditions in the US for the crime of “parading without a license” or “trespassing” (on public property).

            And it took an hour for him to kill all of them, as we know from the phone calls they were making, desperately asking for someone to save them.

            But in Sandy Hook we are told that one skinny kid, carrying 300 pounds of weapons and ammo, managed to kill 26 people in 5 minutes, so dead that there were no attempts made to save them or even transport them to the hospital.

            Quite a difference.

          • MaryQueen January 2, 2023 at 8:00 pm #

          • Paula D January 3, 2023 at 11:30 am #

            No, I don’t think so, Mary.

            The difference was the internet. The Official Story was that a crazed man took a gun and killed kids so we need gun control, same as Sandy Hook.

            But this time we had cell phone videos and parent testimony and the story of the cop whose wife was in that classroom (still alive) who was stopped and disarmed by the other cops.
            Because……”No one was in charge” (Official Story).

            So they tried the whole “We need gun control” line, but there were too many outraged citizens showing the truth, so they dropped it.

        “the second Biden got in they put up prison-like barriers with razor wire around the WH.”

        That was shocking.

        I was and am not sure what I think of that—what I think the real purpose was.

        But I think its purpose is basically a stage prop, to reinforce the “insurrection” narrative. To make people act like they believe that ridiculous story, even if they don’t.

        Making people pretend to think something or just keep their mouths shut is just about as good as actually making them believe it.

        Look at how useful it is that everyone pretends to believe the Dallas and 9/11 narratives, even though everyone knows that basically no one believes either one.

        We are very, very deep into “Emperor’s New Clothes” territory. We need a “child” to blurt out the truth in a very public space.

    Lots of pointed questions here to start off the new year. I expect the looming war escalation in Ukraine to be conveniently used to drown it all out. War, what is it good for? Ask any corrupt politician and they’ll tell you “quite a lot!”

      In the news a Ukraine missile kills 63 Russian soldiers.Their biggest hit yet. Ukraine says they killed hundreds of soldiers. This was not a Ukrainian missile. It was a US HIMARS missile probably fired by US “advisors.”. Putin’s patients must be wearing thin at this point. This war is really gonna’ take off in ’23

        Every year my husband and I make our own predictions about the coming year.
        Last night we read last year’s predictions and they were heavy on the “people are going to wake up about the ‘vaccines’ as more people die”.
        Yeah, not so much.

        This year mine is heavy on the “the war in Ukraine is going to escalate and we’re all going to Die!” We’ll see if we’re around next year to read them.

This is hard for me because I’m emotional about my house. And yet, it should be done. Time will tell if my logic trumps my emotion.

        Yes, I saw that. Putin has already pledged to go after the real perpetrators and not just the idiots on the ground who do the dirty work. DC is apparently daring him to do just that. The mindset in DC has gradually changed to nuclear war is winnable and might be their only option, so I think atmospheric “testing” will likely become a reality again in 2023.

        • Not_GeorgeT January 2, 2023 at 12:31 pm #

          Putin, embodying the Russian mindset: if the fight is inevitable, strike first.

          Massive EMP bursts would not vaporize very many. They would toss the world back into the 18th or early 19th century at minimum. Essentially hastening the course of events in a major way.

          It would become more than interesting with the ‘flip of a switch’.

          Disaffected, I was curious (actually amazed) when I heard about a Pentagon study on “winnable nuclear war”. Hunted it up on the web and downloaded it.

    Our host offers a perfect compilation of our list of grievances. I suspect they will all be addressed and taken note of, but I also think it’s quite possible that no action will be taken against the guilty and nothing will change.

    After all, if we consider what is known (and has been known for years) about the Kennedy assassination, 9/11, etc., the information is available and could have resulted in prosecutions and punishments, but it has not happened. We all know why that is.

    Is there some point at which the outrages reach critical mass and some equivalent of a nuclear reaction takes place? If it’s possible, the events of the last ten years should be sufficient to bring it about. If not, I’ll have to assume that the Deep State is so entrenched, and the public so debilitated, that there is literally nothing “they” can do to us that we will not simply accept.

      They used that same gambit with 9-11 “investigations”.

      They charged a dupe named Zacarias Moussaoui with conspiracy, telling us he was the 20th hijacker (before his trial), and then using his upcoming trial as a reason to withhold evidence from the investigators.

      So he was convicted in the media before trial, but in the name of a “fair trial” evidence was withheld from the public.

      Sweet scam.

  22. AlD666 January 2, 2023 at 10:59 am #

    I beg to differ with fantasyland conspiracy theories. The idea that the new Republican House leadership will waste taxpayer money investigating some guy’s laptop because he happens to be related to the President is chicanery of the highest order. Hunter Biden was a drug addict trying to find money wherever he could; smearing him to get at Biden is pathetic. Vaccinations saved lives. When Trump was President, he gave tax breaks to billionaires. By contrast, Biden is working for each of you who comments on this blog. As for January 6, it’s quite clear by now that Trump hoped to keep the election from being certified so that he could somehow pull off a coup. The election wasn’t stolen; he lost fair and square. Dozens of courts found that his crazy enablers had no proof of chicanery; the idea of a stolen election was based on the false assumption that somehow early voting is suspect. It’s not; it allows more citizens to cast their ballots without waiting in long lines on election day.

    As for Kennedy, it’s not especially clear what Kennedy would have done differently than LBJ; we like to think he would’ve avoided Vietnam escalation, but that’s hypothesis. He was a cold warrior, just like LBJ. The idea that MacArthur enlightened him and he would’ve allowed South Vietnam to become Commie is far-fetched. We’ll never know. What we do know is that LBJ, in Kennedy’s name, managed to pass needed legislation that benefits all of us. Civil rights, voting rights, Medicare.

    I too like the Feynman quote, but ‘reality’ isn’t what any of us pretend it is. I suggest many of you read Kurt Andersen’s Fantasyland about Americans who live in a post-truth world where they make it up as they go along, which pretty much describes the conspiracy theories that rely on talk show blather and factoids that are either misinterpreted or completely bonkers.

    Good luck. Happy New Year.

      It wasn’t Early Voting™ that was a problem for us, it was the late votes at 2 am in truckloads that were 90% for Biden that made Biden’s vote count rise vertically in 4 states that all stopped counting votes at the same time.
      It was the evidence gathered in 2000 mules by geofencing that the mules were going to NGOs linked to Democrats. The same sort of evidence the DOJ used to get January 6 protesters ya know.

      The election wasn’t stolen; he lost fair and square. – AID666

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

      Hey AID, in the election in question I personally cast 2 fraudulent mail-in ballots anonymously, one each for Biden and Trump. The object was to prove it could be done, not to actually influence the election outcome one way or another.

      I have described here on this board a half dozen times exactly how I did it. I won’t bother to describe it again. It was soooo easy. It was obvious to me that a million others could easily duplicate what I did. Whether they did or not I couldn’t say. I even wrote to my county clerk (the woman in charge of the election in Middlesex Cty NJ) and told her what I did and how I did it and I challenged her to discover who I was and arrest me.

      I said I looked forward to jail time since I had/have a shit-ton of books I would never get around to reading otherwise. Needless to say I never heard another word about it.

    In that vein, I’m sharing this amazing substack post. The author created an in-depth chronicle in poem form on the covid hoax/fiasco with all the requisite research and links. Totally brilliant:

    Mistakes Were NOT Made:
    An Anthem for Justice
    by Margaret Anna Alice

    “The following poem was inspired by a conversation with Mike Yeadon. We have both independently noticed the increasing use of terms like “bungled” and “blunder” to describe the crimes against humanity perpetrated under the cloak of COVID. Even well-meaning people who share similar values and goals sometimes fall into this trap being set by those preparing their parachute jump from culpability.”

    Speaking of businesses that made a profit without visible means, and Disney providing entertaining Woke propaganda to indoctrinate the children…..

    My husband was brought up on the east coast and a couple of years ago he told me about a great amusement park his dad took him to called Freedomland. It sounded great. We looked it up and it was built by an ex-Disney employee in the most heavily populated area of the USA. It only lasted 4 years.

    Meanwhile, in LA, with a population 1/4 of the size of the NY area, Disney built a very expensive amusement park out in the middle of farm fields in Orange County. The electric bill to run that place must have been more than the total admission charges, imo.

    But somehow Disneyland flourished and grew, while Freedomland went broke.

    How? I think that there are some deeper pockets than Disney involved here.

      Well I’ll probably get trounced for this, but I have read a very credible-sounding account from an adult who was a sex-trafficked child and that DL is where they did a lot of their programming, grooming, schooling, etc. It was a horrific account.

      So if there was human trafficking that would account for how well it’s always done.

        Look at the universities and their giant endowments. With those, they are able to dominate their local economies, snap up local real estate, support the Leftist project, support their foot soldiers, and print money as the management team plays in the markets.

        Note I haven’t touched on the enormous amounts of income they receive from alumni giving and federal money. Much of that is tax-free.

        So we get to Disneyland and the line of teenagers went around the entire park! I’m not kidding, it was insane.

        So we got in line and waited for a couple of hours and then I said “Let’s get out of here”.

    The Battle of Bakhmut purportedly has shaped up to be a major battle in this war in Eastern Ukraine, but it’s hard to find any video or battlefield reporting that one might expect in this age of instant communication. You can find more video from the Battle of Verdun in 1916 than you can find on Bakhmut. It seems the armies are dug in, like they were along the Marne outside Paris a century ago. (slugging it out with artillery duels) Why would this be? Panzers, helicopters, drones, and close air support with fixed wing aircraft, long ago made this sort of warfare obsolete. This is a strange war, nothing being quite what it seems.

    On CNN this morning one of expert guests, a retired US General, suggested that even tho Ukraine is winning on all fronts, hundreds of billions more in military aid will be required to secure final victory. CNN seems more like Zelensky’s agit/prop department than they do a US news gathering organization.

      The media always goes along with the foolishness of showing the president poring over battle plans etc. as if he is somehow equipped to be making military decisions by himself.

      We don’t even get that silly over here.

      I still do not understand his personal motivation for wanting to stir up WWIII. I am aware of the deep and abiding hatred of Russia of some people in that part of the world, but I don’t see that as being a big enough motivation for anyone except a zealot, which her heretofore never appeared to be.

      People keep repeating that “Florida mansion” nonsense as if that could possibly explain things.

      From everything I have seen, he could have bought property over here before he ever ran for office.

      I did learn that before her went into performing arts, he went to law school.

      I don’t think law school is the same big deal in other countries as it is here, but it could be where he learned how to grift, if a Ukrainian didn’t just come by that naturally.

      I thought that someone doesn’t go through all the rigors of a presidential race just for some extra cash when they already likely were living very comfortably.

      I learned that he didn’t go through a typical campaign. He mostly just released a series of videos.

      He was politically aware before he ran for office, as his comedy shows often dealt with politics.

      That show of his, Servant of the People, he didn’t just act in that, he wrote it.

      It aired over there in 2015, which was after our government was finished with their coup or whatever, wasn’t it?

      Interestingly enough, it found it’s way to Netflix in this country in 2017.

          He’s an actor, working from a script. Whose script? I understand taking on a role and getting paid. But to the point of putting yourself in danger, and harming your countrymen by getting them into a war they can’t win?

          Nothing in his background makes him look like a crime boss or sociopath.

            He cannot do what he wants. First the Azovs, now the Yanks, laff in his face when he stamps his foot and says he is he president, godammit. He probably will not get out of this alive.
            Have you noticed how short his arms are, from the shoulder to the elbow? Really weird.

            If he had more charm, he would make a great protagonist for some kind of play. Because of the current tensions and modern tragedy he represents—“El Yid.” Of course, in the future they can find someone like . . . Liam Neeson . . . to play him. A Jewish Liam Neeson . . . Or at least “Ukrainian” . . .

      • Paula D January 2, 2023 at 2:41 pm #

        I don’t think that Zelensky knew what he was getting into. Much like Trump, he seemed to think that the president could make a difference.

        The coup was in 2014, so yeah, his show was after. He was elected in 2019.

        He was not hired by the US. The US backed Poroshenko. But Zelensky ran on a Peace With Donbass and Carry Out the Minsk Accords platform and he won with 72% of the vote, not counting the people of Donbass, who were not allowed to vote.

        I have put this here before, but I will do it again, because people are overwhelmed by propaganda and forget even recent history.

        “There was a breaking point early into Zelensky’s presidency where he and his team was made aware of the position of both president and parliament in Ukraine in the overall pecking order. The chiefly ceremonial transition of power was still in progress, coupled with nearly a month of relative calm devoid of street action by right-wing radical organizations, as they too reassessed whether they still had state backing or would be held accountable for past misdeeds.
        Suddenly, hostilities on the front-line with Donbas resumed, and with such ferocity that it spilled over onto the UN platform and threatened to bury the Minsk agreement there and then. Zelensky was basically called to the front with this provocation, which gave us the notorious exchange of him trying to dress down the military: “I’m 40-something years old and I’m the president — I’m not some shmuck.” The military told him to go fuck himself and that they would do what they want, that they do not answer to him. That much was obvious by infuriated statements made by his cadre on return to Kiev.
        Back in Kiev, Zelensky and his party of clowns attempted to push back by quickly formulating a law proposal, restricting the use of weapons on the front-lines to only be used in response. Needless to say, this stirred such a hornet’s nest that the proposal was scuttled before the ink had time to dry; perhaps someone was even made to eat the paper.
        That week it was made apparent to everyone that neither the president nor a parliamentary majority had any control over the military or security services. Protests by right-wing radicals erupted all over, with police supervision. Court-houses and government buildings were stormed, the president’s office was vandalized and the state appointed security detail responsible for “protecting” Zelensky abandoned their positions for the duration. The message was unequivocal — the nationalists are in control of all state organizations capable of projecting force and the political establishment is merely a figleaf on a military junta.
        Following this cold shower, team Zelensky reorganized the party apparatus who hadn’t even had time to warm up their seats, they rubber-stamped the advisory positions of prominent neo-Nazi figureheads to positions within both political and security organizations — presumably, for the people actually in charge to have more immediate access to their respective areas of responsibility. The only aspect that wasn’t flipped like a pancake was the conciliatory rhetoric coming out of Zelensky — in this, he was braver than his spokespeople who put on their brown shirts almost immediately.
        That is not to say that there weren’t nationalist tendencies within Zelensky’s party even on the campaign trail — it is my impression that Ukrainians in general, even when neither particularly radical or militaristic, are generally comfortable with ethno-nationalist ideology or, at best, downplay the significance of discriminatory or hostile ideas, symbols and statements to themselves.
        For eight years, the Russian information sphere was saturated with coverage of manifestations of Ukrainian neo-nazi ideology and always tried to bring in Ukrainian political analysts to explain their position. That position, without fail, almost always amounted to marginalization — deeds, images and statements were made by or depicted nobodies who held no power and did not represent official Ukraine, even when these nobodies were official representatives of Ukraine, advisors to the same or acting with the approval of Ukrainian officials. At most, manifestations of government approved neo-nazi ideology was labelled as “excessive” by Ukrainian political analysts, embarrassing not for the evil that it represented but for the negative impact it might have on PR.”

      • Paula D January 2, 2023 at 2:49 pm #

        Also remember that Zelensky was open to negotiations with Russia.

        The first negotiations were in Minsk, in early February. The SBU then killed their own negotiator!!!
        Blatant thuggery, ignored by the Mighty Wurlitzer.

        So then the second negotiations were in Ankara and they came up with a tentative deal.
        That is when Russia left Bucha, as part of the deal.

        Then Boris Johnson flew into Kiev to personally strongarm Zelensky into scrapping the dea.

        Then the SBU went into Bucha 2 days after the Russians left and slaughtered “Russian collaborators”, and the Mighty Wurlitzer started playing the “Russia did it” tune, and the whole west went along with it.
        Because they stupid.

        And Russia said “You are not agreement capable”, and carried on liberating Mariupol.
        And then moved on to liberating Donbass.

        Zelensky is following orders now, for sure. But I don’t think that he knew he was going to be following US/NATO orders when he ran.

        He had the backing of a powerful oligarch. But that oligarch has lost his wealth and power, under US orders, and has a US warrant out for his arrest.
        Just a little showing of power to make Zelensky know he had better do what they want.

        And then people personalize the whole damn war onto Zelensky as if he chose to do it himself.

        So now Hollande, Merkel and Poroshenko are all on record saying that the Minsk Accords were only meant to buy time for the US/NATO to arm and train an Ukrainian army and dig them in on Donbass territory.

        They never had any intention of carrying out the agreements, and they have now all confessed in public.

        Which raise a whole lot of questions. One of the justifications for putting women in US Marine & Army ground combat units is that warfare is not like it was at the Battle of Loos in 1915 or the Somme in 1916; somehow it has been sanitized and is more amenable to the ladies. But judging the few photos of the battlefield at Bakhmut it looks exactly like the Somme in 1916.

        Loos is where the British first shot canisters of poison gas into German trenches. People are worried about Russians deploying battlefield tactical nukes but I think it’s more likely that one side or another lobs a few phosgene gas shells into the opposing trenches; if that doesn’t work then the nukes will come out.

      Ultimately, both mommy and daddy are on the same side, with one or the other being more willing to work with you and compromise, or willing to give assistance on a given issue.

      But make no mistake. They are working together to keep you in line, obedient, and minimally contented.

      What we had with Orange Guy was a temporary live-in Grandpa.

      Mommy and Daddy didn’t see it coming, but Grandpa got in the house and boy did the kids love him. Someone was actually paying attention to their grievances with mommy and daddy and telling it how it was: mommy is a vindictive whore with despotic tendencies, and daddy is a closeted fetishized cuck behind a wall of religiosity and puritanism.

      Grandpa knew how f_cked up and sick both of them are and Grandpa really enjoyed letting you know. He gloated in it and grew overconfident. He thought he could trust in Mommy and Daddy’s old friends from the neighborhood, and was oblivious to their machinations to keep him in check and ride him off to the sunset in heaven’s waiting room: Florida.

      Grandpa kept with the bombast and pull-my-finger-jokes to the delight of the kids. Yet, he was naive enough to trust mommy and daddy’s octogenarian doctor who worked with Mommy and Daddy to get the kids to resent Grandpa. They started to doubt Grandpa’s sense, but still preferred him to the alternative dysfunctional family arrangement.

      Alas, the kids really never have a say, and despite their opinion and their vote, Grandpa was sent packing to Florida.

      Mommy and Daddy never did forgive him. Even swearing out warrants for the precious Moments tchotchkes he pilfered from their curio cabinet.

      He still sends postcards, although the USPS refuses to deliver them.

        The only thing that can save us now from all these malformed and sickly life forms is a good-old Crazy Uncle or Aunt. And he’s not actually crazy, of course. He just looks that way to those who have wilfully untethered themselves from truth and reality. When you embrace the truth during insane times it makes you look crazy to all the deluded suckers. That kind of crazy has never looked so good.

        And also, getting some additional help from a few Black Sheep members of the family who never did like taking orders or living up to someone else’s expectations.

        Ultimately, most families are dysfunctional. They may not want to admit it but they are. But what else could you get from a collection of confused and gullible human beings with harmful tendencies that are easily led astray?

        That is NOT our true nature of course which is grounded in Spirit. But we were all sent down to this Penal Colony Planet to learn just how effed up we can get when we take our eyes off the Spirit ball and pretend we are something less.

    Consider the various rackets that are frequently mentioned and discussed here, including health, education, and the MIC.

    Now, why would we leave media out of this group? The answer of course is that we cant; the next question then is, how are profits to be generated in an organized scheme?

    Hence my favorite QED conclusion: duh. Media is based on advertising, which is driven by delivering viewership aka eyeballs. And what causes people to tune in? Ah, the good old venial sins.

    So, here’s the trick: create sufficient drama exploiting natural desires triggering wrath, envy, etc. Any writer, dramatist knows the game (Including of course our esteemed host).

    So who puts it up on the big stage, strutting and preening about during their moments of glory, providing bofo box office while keeping the masses enthralled, enraged, despondent, etc?

    As I keep saying, walk away. The fate of this country is no longer in our hands. It’s being determined on the other side of the world. All I can advise is stay as far away as possible from any segment that is dependent on welfare, ss, mic, finance, etc

    The show gets underway when mouse click money no longer holds value.

    Old wine, shiny new bottles! You really have to marvel at how Jim ‘crafts’ his rantings. He has his checklist next to him:

    Deep State orchestrated 1/6-Check
    Hunter Biden-Check
    Ivermectin-Check
    The Party of Chaos-Check etc. etc etc

    Jim, hard to tell exactly when, but perhaps when he got off the Peak Oil kick, noticed a shift in his freakish audience, and like any good grifter, took advantage of the paranoid style in ‘merican politics and here we are with a good ol’ fashioned ‘merican circus show.

    Let’s go over a few things again for the slobbering hordes here who think they ‘really know.’

    1. Ivermectin and Hydroxy don’t work for the Rona. Numerous double blind studies on thousands have demonstrated this.
    2. Dumpy did nothing on 1/6 to quell the white trash party so Nancy P didn’t refuse the National Guard.
    3. Hunter Biden…while a pos, has nothing on Javanka and the rest of the Dumpy criminal crew.
    4. Funny how Jimmy fails to mention the fact that Dumpy, in light of recent tax docs, failed to pay taxes using illegal schemes.
    5. And let’s just ignore all of the video evidence and text messages to/from Mark Meadows.
    6.Right, the white trash was just in DC hoping to ‘peacefully assemble.’

    Sorry Jim, but you just suck. You lie about nearly everything. Just stop.

            Sweetie Pie, you can get the low-down on Ivermectin all by yourself, by acquiring Dr Pierre Kory’s book, The War on Ivermectin when it comes out next month. (Do come back with a detailed scientific rebuttal when you’ve read it.) Dr Kory is an Ivermectin expert and has saved many lives by using it for covid. He started the AFLD, whose doctors have successfully treated thousands of covid patients. The one thing that almost all the covid dead have in common is that they were not given available and appropriate early treatment.

            The book will include:
            (a) the overwhelming (but censored) scientific evidence for Ivermectin’s success in treating covid;
            (b) details of the criminal conspiracy by governments, publishers, health authories, Big Tech and others to censor true information on Ivermectin;
            (c) details of the personal and professional attacks, defamation, censorship etc. inflicted on Dr Kory himself for speaking the truth.

          He won’t read anything but officially approved sources.
          His overlords tell him that questioning Science™ is very, very bad.
          Science™ is pronounced by his betters (Dr. Fauci) and then becomes ”established” Science™.

          Also, medical treatments cannot be questioned. Once an official protocol is distributed to medical corporations, all doctors must follow it.
          Any doctor that does not bow to the protocol must be threatened with the loss of his or her job and/or license.
          Because medical Science™ is also a sacrament and heresy is not allowed.

          You may have learned last century that science is never settled and that science that cannot be questioned is not science.

          That is now outdated, just like human biology and the definition of ”vaccine” and ”woman”. Science is what your ruling overlords tell you, so shut up about it.

      Conclusions:
      Moderate-certainty evidence finds that large reductions in COVID-19 deaths are possible using ivermectin. Using ivermectin early in the clinical course may reduce numbers progressing to severe disease. The apparent safety and low cost suggest that ivermectin is likely to have a significant impact on the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic globally

            The Department of Justice is trying to prevent disclosure of 400 pages of sensitive documents on Hunter and Jim Biden’s dealings with China, Russia and Ukraine – by pretending they don’t exist.

            Colorado lawyer Kevin Evans sued the department in March after it failed to comply with his request for records on the Bidens’ dealings under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

            Evans, a FOIA expert, asked for documents pertaining to ‘any relationship, communication, gift(s), and/or remuneration in any form’ between the president’s son Hunter or brother Jim, and China, Russia or Ukraine.

            He said government lawyers first admitted in court to having at least 400 pages of ‘potentially relevant’ documents – but are now trying to get away with saying they can ‘neither confirm nor deny’ the existence of any records that match his request.

            You’re really bad at this you should quit while you only look ignorant and stupid.

            Donald J. Trump declared a $916 million loss on his 1995 income tax returns, a tax deduction so substantial it could have allowed him to legally avoid paying any federal income taxes for up to 18 years, records obtained by The New York Times show.

            Although Mr. Trump’s taxable income in subsequent years is as yet unknown, a $916 million loss in 1995 would have been large enough to wipe out more than $50 million a year in taxable income over 18 years.

            So much for your leftwing hack expert.

            “Mr. Trump is a highly-skilled businessman who has a fiduciary responsibility to his business, his family and his employees to pay no more tax than legally required,” the statement said. “That being said, Mr. Trump has paid hundreds of millions of dollars in property taxes, sales and excise taxes, real estate taxes, city taxes, state taxes, employee taxes and federal taxes.”

    I don’t know how much of it is true, because I don’t believe that out State Department and George Soros care about corruption in Ukraine:

    “In other words, Hunter Biden’s boss and benefactor at Burisma Holdings is the same Ukrainian billionaire-oligarch who also claimed the position of boss and benefactor over Volodymyr Zelensky before he became Ukraine’s president.

    Kolomoysky Owns 1+1 Media Group

    Kolmoysky, who currently holds a net worth of $1.8 billion, making him the 1750th richest person in the world, owns holdings in metal, petroleum, and the media sector, where he has had a long history with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

    For years, Zelensky’s company produced shows for Kolmoysky’s TV network, 1+1 Media Group, one of the largest media conglomerates in Ukraine. Zelensky achieved national fame, portraying a president on a hit television sitcom called Servant of the People, which was broadcasted on a channel owned by Kolmoysky.

    In 2019, Kolmoysky’s media channels gave a big boost to Zelensky’s presidential campaign, while Kolmoysky even provided security, lawyers, and vehicles for Zelensky during his campaign. Kolmoysky’s bodyguard and lawyer accompanied Zelensky on the campaign trail as Zelensky was chauffeured around in a Range Rover owned by one of Kolmoysky’s companies.

    The Pandora Papers showed that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his TV production partners were beneficiaries of a web of offshore firms created in 2012, the same year Zelensky’s production company entered into a deal with Kolomoysky’s media group, which allegedly received $41 million in funds from Kolomoysky’s Privatbank.

    Zelensky’s political rival, President Petro Poroshenko, commented on their connection during the campaign trail, “Fate intended to put me together with Kolomoyskiy’s puppet in the second round of the elections.”

    After Zelensky’s victory, Kolomoysky, who had spent the last few years living between Israel and Switzerland, returned to Ukraine to keep up his relationship with the new president, nominating over 30-lawmakers to Zelensky’s newly established party and maintaining influence with many of them in parliament.”

      Just another good ole boys club in another good ole boys place huh. Essentially Zelensky is a fabrication and a template. And so it definitely makes sense now that the war is really a media production and an emotional swindle. Very interesting connections, thanks for posting!

        The Ukrainians are dug in. Defensive trenches protected by artillery make Russian movement west difficult.

        It took years to prepare the zig-zag trenches for this shitshow. The Zelensky brand planned years in advance for all this.

        • SoftStarLight January 2, 2023 at 5:15 pm #

          Wow I did not know that K-Chien re the digging of trenches over the course of several years. Though I did read somewhere that the Ukrainians have been fortifying Donbas ever since the 2014 revolution. All the weapons and arms producers must love this and probably have been invested in this for a long time too.

          They started in 2014, after the coup.

          Don’t personalize this to Zelensky. The Russians don’t.

      @ Beryl of Oyl:

      Fascinating! So…. It sounds to me like 1) Ukraine gets billions in aid from the US, 2) Hunter Biden gets a nice cut of that, through his paycheck from Burisma, 3) Kolomoysky probably also gets a nice cut, 4) Kolomoysky needs to control the Ukraine government by placing Zelensky in the presidency, lest someone (such as Trump) starts to make inquiries about whose pockets all that US aid money is flowing into. Besides the 10% for the Big Guy.

      I’ll bet Kolomoysky is a central figure in the Ukraine money-laundering operation as a whole.

      • Paula D January 3, 2023 at 12:12 pm #

        Nope. He has fallen out of favor. Zelensky’s sugar daddy was removed by the US and Zelensky was forced to bow to the US/NATO instead.

    I always feel enriched by your positivity Mr. K but I must admit that I am not super enthused about this supposed Kevin McCarthy House of Representatives. He is also the same person who right after Jan 6 was checking into getting people kicked off twitter for one. He also supposedly told Liz Cheney that he was going to ask President Trump to resign. And basically Marjorie Taylor Greene who has sided with McCarthy has said there is no chance that the 14 thousand hours of video from the Capitol on Jan 6 will be made public. I’m kinda done with her too. But at the same time i do hope that there are some good things that will occur on the investigation front. Anyhoo, happy Monday!!

    • literofoyl January 3, 2023 at 5:09 pm #

      Any estimates on how many lost rounds of Votes will happen, before Kevin McCarthy removes his name for Speaker? After five rounds, the odds of getting the 218 magic number become very long (unless he offers to buy free dinner and drinks for the next week while the voting continues).

    Hunter Biden is a party animal and he could have sex with a flock of sheep on his laptop. So what?

    The chain of evidence for his laptop is nonexistent. Anybody could have put anything on the damn thing by now. The laptop will have no standing in a court of law.

    People will only believe what they want. Haters will hate the people who ignore will deny. From a legal point of view the laptop is worthless.

    So an adult playing with a full deck cant get their undies in a bunch because there is not point.

    Hunter never was elected to anything. There are no voters hunter is accountable to. He is a guy with a rich daddy, that is all he is.

    “we are creatures of outside influences; as a rule we do not think, we only imitate”

    Mark Twain knew everything is a remix. The temptation to believe what you want is tempting. Knowing this it is best to consider how clean your facts are. Most likely you won’t look at how clean they are unless you think about it first, if you admit you may be easily influenced.

    Most people can’t do that. Pride gets in the way.

    I look at the laundry list of ‘wrongs’ in today’s article. America seems short of cosmic justice. This is true. I too am impatient but what do we want? Vengeance or justice? There is a difference.

      You forget a major point here politically.

      The folks after Hunter are really after his dad who if proven, used his position in the government to enrich the Biden Mob. Illegal as hell. Ukraine and China as well.

      If the same terms were used against the Biden’s as have been used against Trump, the whole crew would be indicted.

      The other big part of this is the very evident bias in the FBI for years. This is an organization that spends 100% of its time trying to sway politics and yet cannot stop a single shooting even when the perps are on some sort of watch list.

      In all ways, this Federal government is worthless as tits on a boar.

        I understand the delicacy of your position, non-Stormfront Bro. All the ladies support you – Now! And will continue to support you as you climb the Pyramid. All moral concerns are as nothing compared to keeping the wife in furs and jewels and keeping “her” kids happy. That’s just what men are supposed to do! Slaves, walking ATM’s and sperm banks.

        Unless you were to find another position of both equal income and equal potential, then your wife would suddenly feel you were holding her back. And the other ladies would back her up.

        Is there no limit to this? Unless she is one of the 10%, no. Why would there be? That’s what men are for. She gets to have moral scruples, not you. Any limit is in you. Would you be willing to make offerings as the Dutch Banker said he was being asked to do? A chicken to Moloch as Hillary put it?

            River is with you! What does that tell you?

            sciencedirect.com

            Carrying capacity is the maximum number, density, or biomass of a population that a specific area can support sustainably. This likely varies over time and depends on environmental factors, resources, and the presence of predators, disease agents, and competitors over time. The concept of carrying capacity has been explicitly recognized for more than 175 years, and its use has waxed and waned during this time. Currently, the use of carrying capacity to describe any particular population requires caution, although the concept remains intuitive and invokes questions that challenge our fundamental understanding of factors that regulate populations over time and space.

            Jarek: Carrying capacity directly determines optimum population and thus by extension (for any normal mind), what is over-population. Your attempt to separate the two is like trying to separate roads from the cars they were built for.

            Ok so let’s take it out for a spin: If a pack of wolves needs fifty square miles of territory, how many packs could five hundred square miles hold?

            Trying to fit more packs of wolves in, would lead to environmental degradation – such as too many deer killed, and ultimately starvation for all of the wolves. Undefined variable: the size of the wolf packs. Can it very? If so, by how much. Other variable: Domestic animals and the reaction of ranchers to wolves killing them. Do the packs fight? Don’t know.

            The concept also has applications to vehicles, boxes, suitcases, roads, any and all species in a given niche, and of course, the Earth itself relative to human demography. In terms of biology, there are always two aspects: the species itself and the niche in question. Interrelated since the health of the latter has everything to do with the health of the former. And the number of the former has much to do with the carrying capacity for that species in that niche.

            Mocking this most broad of concepts is bizarre in the extreme.

          • Jarek January 2, 2023 at 9:08 pm #

            Mary: Not true. I don’t begrudge him that at all. I’m simply amazed at people’s acceptance of success at any cost – including that of working directly for the Enemy. Isn’t this the kind of Lust that got us here to being with? That and the acceptance of it as not only necessary but Moral! The Ladies like it!

            Yes, he is far more successful than I. Satisfied? Now address the above.

            If he is really good, then he could find similar work someplace else. But perhaps making a bit less? And that simply isn’t acceptable, is it? Notice how all the ladies put themselves in the place of the wife when questions like this come up.

            Fascinating, is it not? My sister looks down me because I’m not a good catch. Isn’t she supposed to be my sister? But no, she’d rather put herself in the place of some prospective girlfriend or wife.

            Not all women. Apparently there are ten percent or so you accept men as human beings. She is not one of them. Obviously you aren’t either.

            My Mother loved me even though a pretty limited person in many ways. Perhaps only in this bond can the average woman transcend the terrible conditioning of her sex. And some women not even then from what I hear….

            Are you putting yourself in the position of his wife? You all seem to do it – maybe even the half mythical ten percent though not to the complete exclusion of a man’s humanity.

          • GreenAlba January 3, 2023 at 7:45 am #

            “Are you putting yourself in the position of his wife? You all seem to do it […]”

            Are you addressing me? If so, do be assured that I would not presume to put myself in the position of anyones’s wife. What a frankly bizarre thing to say, especially to someone in my position. I own my own home. I married someone earning a lot less than me, and subsequently married (and housed) someone else recovering from a business bankruptcy, so if you’re looking for mercenary women, you’re looking at the wrong person.

            On top of which the only thing I know about Mrs Owl is that she is a professional and has her own career. And shares a son with Mr Owl. I don’t know her views on anything, other than that some of them have changed with recent circumstances. Which is probably more than you know.

            In other words, eff off with your devious insinuations about women.

            You could equally say that Night Owl is operating behind the lines and getting useful intelligence on the perpetrators.

            But like I said, Blackrock probably paid my salary and currently pays my pension(s) for as long as they last, which I don’t think will be that long. I hadn’t even heard of Blackrock 2 years ago, but we live and learn. Or we should.

          • Anthea January 3, 2023 at 9:25 am #

            @ Jarek:

            You are rather obviously living off of somebody. It also appears that you have been living off of somebody for your entire life. Must be somebody who is/was worth very considerable bucks. Where did it come from?

          • Anthea January 3, 2023 at 11:06 am #

            @ Jarek:

            Re your comment that, “Apparently there are ten percent or so you accept men as human beings,” adult human beings (both men and women) have adult responsibilities. The chief of these is the capability to be self-supporting and, if married, the capability to provide for a family. Traditionally, the position of provider/breadwinner is primarily the responsibility of the husband, as, particularly if there are children, the wife’s time and energies will be largely consumed by children and the other responsibilities of the domestic sphere.

            The reason your sister looks down on you as “not a good catch” is because you refuse to assume adult responsibilities. One has the very strong impression that you have never even assumed responsibility for providing for yourself (let alone assuming responsibility for a family) or engaged in any productive occupation. Not only that, you continually carry on about the injustice of anyone (particularly any female) expecting you to assume adult responsibilities.

            One of my former neighbors was like that. He had moved into the utility room of his dad’s trailer (where he had a cot set up by the water heater), because his girlfriend had kicked him out, he had lost his job, and his car had been repossessed. And he had a pretty bad drinking problem. He was about 32 at the time.

            His refrain was much like your own: Women are selfish and materialistic, and every time he meets a woman, the first thing she asks is, “What do you do?” He frankly stated that he was looking for a “cougar,” so he could become a “house-husband.” The duties of a house-husband were, in his view, mowing the lawn and drinking up all the liquor–which was what he did while living with his dad.

            Funny that he never applied to any of his guy friends (some of whom were high earners) to take him in and support him. The menfolk too are fully cognizant of the disadvantages of supporting their unemployed acquaintances–and are perhaps even more reluctant to do so than the ladies. Like the ladies, the guy friends will decline to feed and house them and cook and clean for them. Nor will they provide free sexual services, as a rule.

            Your sister rightly views you as a kind of superannuated child who had never assumed adult responsibilities, and who is quite determined not to ever do so–and is even made angry by the suggestion that he do so.

            I’ll bet your guy friends (if you have any) also regard you as a loser.

          • Anthea January 3, 2023 at 11:35 am #

            @ Jarek:

            Now that I think of it, this is probably the reason you have almost no human contact: Everyone, both male and female, regards you as a loser and a mooch. Social contacts thus become painful and embarrassing.

            People probably ask you what you do. Not much you can say, is there? And you probably have sense enough to know that, if you wax eloquent about the injustice of (men) being expected to have a job and (minimally) be self-supporting, such an assertion will be met with derision–probably much more so by men than by women.

            You doubtless feel a little silly in the company of adult men who have bought houses for their families, taken them on vacations, bought cars for the teenagers, remodeled the kitchen, and are planning to renovate the small barn/garage on their property to make it into a carriage house for their aging parents, in order to have them nearby so they can look after them.

          • Anthea January 3, 2023 at 12:03 pm #

            @ Jarek:

            Oh! And try telling these adult men (assuming you know any) that you’re the smart one for remaining a child and dependent, and that they are slaves to wives and children.

            Sure, you can say that to Night Owl anonymously, on an online blog. Try saying it to some gainfully employed, successful family man in person. Maybe you know a chemical engineer working in the oil patch who would like to hear your views on this matter, and how much better of a person you are for being a zero.

            You will be speaking to someone who knows you, who knows you’ve never held a job in your life and are a loser without knowledge, skills, or backbone. You will, in short, be speaking to someone who knows that your your motivation for espousing such views is to try (unsuccessfully) to make an argument that anyone who is not a zero is a slave. And the main person you’re trying to convince is yourself–such a (pretended) view being balm to your ego.

            Not one of you has addressed the point: In a corrupt system like this, the higher you go, the lower you go.

            Anthea is frothing at the mouth. Her God is matter. I’m probably the only one who bothered to read her theological posts – and that IS what she said. The idea of anyone escaping from this is anathema to her. Thus she serves Black Rock (the stone deep in the UN’s meditation room is said to be this) in the Religious Department. There are different sub-Pyramids that make up THE Pyramid itself. See the work of David Icke.

            My dream girl will be as proud of her gumball machine ring as other women are of their blood diamonds – red with the blood of their enslaved fiance or husband if not the enslaved Black workers themselves.

            Being poor in spirit is not the same thing as being poor materially. But alas, the latter is an aid to it. Christ said, It’s harder for a rich man to attain unto the Kingdom as it is for a camel to go thru the eye of the needle – the gates of Jerusalem. That was then. Now? Now it’s like trying to thru the eye of an actual needle.

            This is rare. For most the cost is very high. Night Owl can’t even think any more. He literally cannot understand “carrying capacity”. I have no doubt he was once a finer person, before drained by his career.

            You’ve had much leisure too – I can tell. How? Because of your great knowledge in many areas. Leisure is the greatest wealth of all, is it not? Yet you rage when men are lucky enough to have it. Pure evil.

            Being wise, I work as little as I have to. If I found a someone who loved me, I might well work more for Us. I won’t be a slave for anyone….

            Lying toad lies again. I don’t ‘accept’ – I just presume. I don’t have the slightest clue which companies my company pension organisation invests in but since I recently learned that Blackrock ultimately owns pretty much everything, I assume they are involved in my rather meagure pension. The other bit – my state pension – comes from the government and another minuscule amount from a small public-sector teaching pension.

            Who exactly have I encouraged to climb a pyramid? What Night Owl does is his business and his wife’s but it really seems to get to you.

            As for my situation, you odious, presumptuous ignoramus – not that it’s any of your business but I tore up my husband’s Will, which was mostly in my favour, and have declined to take any of his money if he dies before me, because it came from the NHS. So FUCK OFF, you lying toad. I never climbed any greasy pole and never encouraged anyone else to do so.

            So now we know that Jarek is a loser-type who refuses to work. I wonder how much he sponges off his family and friends? Being a parasite is also an indication of narcissism, where the person imagines themselves “above” having to work, so makes all sorts of excuses (as Jarek provides) about why working is evil and for suckers, etc. But it’s working people who support Jarek in some way, I’m betting.

            “My Mother loved me even though a pretty limited person in many ways.”

            I love how that sentence is a textbook example of ambiguity! How sweet.

            Regarding not working much because clilmbing the greasy pole leads you into temptation, I am reminded of M. Scott Peck, who felt somewhat contemptuous of people who thought like that. He only saw virtue in poverty – relative or absolute – if the person had achieved success and voluntarily given it up. The other scenario is just as easily interpreted as laziness, either in the simplest sense or because the person wants to avoid the moral dilemmas that any thinking person comes across in a high-achieving career.

            I recall Mike Yeadon mentioning that he gave up a job at a very inconvenient time for him and his family because staying in it would have involved doing stuff he thought was wrong. He was pointing out that scientists he knew professionally, who were now either high-level public health officials or CEOs in the key vaxx companies, should resign – or sue him.

            NO – I meant in the sense that Blackrock seems to ultimately finance everything – including our governments and public services. I suspect they financed the lockdowns, one way or another.

            I’m thinking of that excellent documentary of Tim Gielen’s, ‘Monopoly’ that showed them to be at the top (or bottom) of literally everything.

          I actually agree with Jarek here.

          Why work your butt off for The Man to get bling when you can be happy with the simple things in life?

          This story illustrates the point:

          AUTHOR
          Courtney Carver
          An American investment banker was at the pier of a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were several large yellowfin tuna. The American complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them.

          The Mexican replied, “only a little while. The American then asked why didn’t he stay out longer and catch more fish? The Mexican said he had enough to support his family’s immediate needs. The American then asked, “but what do you do with the rest of your time?”

          The Mexican fisherman said, “I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take siestas with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine, and play guitar with my amigos. I have a full and busy life.” The American scoffed, “I am a Harvard MBA and could help you. You should spend more time fishing and with the proceeds, buy a bigger boat. With the proceeds from the bigger boat, you could buy several boats, eventually you would have a fleet of fishing boats. Instead of selling your catch to a middleman you would sell directly to the processor, eventually opening your own cannery. You would control the product, processing, and distribution. You would need to leave this small coastal fishing village and move to Mexico City, then LA and eventually New York City, where you will run your expanding enterprise.”

          The Mexican fisherman asked, “But, how long will this all take?”

          To which the American replied, “15 – 20 years.”

          “But what then?” Asked the Mexican.

          The American laughed and said, “That’s the best part. When the time is right you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public and become very rich, you would make millions!”

          “Millions – then what?”

          The American said, “Then you would retire. Move to a small coastal fishing village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take siestas with your wife, stroll to the village in the evenings where you could sip wine and play your guitar with your amigos.”

            @ Paula D:

            Well, the thing is, the lifestyle of the Mexican fisherman that you describe is not what Jarek advocates–or at least, so it appears to me.

            You notice that he advocates “escaping from matter,” and equates providing for a family with slavery. Jarek’s general view about how to make ones “escape from matter” appears to be that this is best done at someone else’s expense.

        • Anthea January 4, 2023 at 10:52 am #

          @ Jarek:

          You seem unable to face the fact that you are a bum.

          So your latest rationalization is that you are too far above the material world to concern yourself with practical adult responsibilities.

      Hunter Biden was in pay-to-play with the Big Guy, helping him with his Ukraine business deals, including coercion. Probably laundering as well.

      That’s not something that should be glossed over.

    • Paula D January 2, 2023 at 7:14 pm #

      The Bidens have never said that the laptop was not genuine.

      Also, actual reporters have verified many of the emails on the laptop by asking the recipients if they were real.

      The significance of the laptop is that there are not just sex and drugs and rock-n-roll evidence on it, but evidence of corruption, including corruption in Ukraine, with the Big Guy demanding 10% of the cut.

      Hunter being on the board of Burisma, pulling down $50,000/month is significant, and the Bidens are not denying that either.

      We have the video footage of Joe Biden bragging to an audience at the CFR that he personally threatened Poroshenko with the loss of a billion dollar IMF loan unless Poroshenko fired the prosecutor looking into the corruption at Burisma.

      But you think it’s irrelevant??? Trump was impeached in 2019 when he called Zelensky to congratulate him on winning the presidency and then asked him to look into the corruption case.

      The Democrats were outraged! And the FBI sat on that laptop throughout the entire farce of impeachment, although there was exculpatory evidence on it.

      Not that asking another president about a corruption case is grounds for impeachment anyway.
      And neither is the other reason they stated, that Trump held up weapons to Ukraine.
      It is illegal for the US to send weapons to a country that is killing its own people, which Ukraine was doing, although somehow they managed to hold an entire impeachment hearing without ever mentioning that salient fact.

      And to this day, dumbass Democrats still don’t know that Ukraine was killing the people of Donbass for 8 years, even though they watched an entire impeachment supporting it!

      What a bunch of idiots.

        Uh, Paula D you forgot to mention that what Trumpy was doing was a mob-boss shakedown. You also fail to mention that Dumpy was the first pres to allow lethal weapons shipments to Ukraine, something Obummer was hesitant to do.

        • Mac January 3, 2023 at 7:19 am #

          River- Wait. I thought it was Trump, not Obama, who was Putin’s boy. Which one sent arms to Ukraine and which one sent blankets?

        • benr January 3, 2023 at 10:02 am #

          No Obama just droned a 16 year old American to death.

        • Paula D January 3, 2023 at 12:34 pm #

          No, Biden did a mob boss shakedown when he demanded that Poroshenko fire the prosecutor.

          Asking about the progress of an investigation is by no stretch of the imagination a ”shakedown”.
          You must know that. But I guess you’re getting paid to proclaim absurdities.

          Obama was president when the arming and training of the military by NATO commenced. Of course he allowed lethal weapons to be shipped.
          Trump supposedly sent a category that Obama did not. Why wasn’t he impeached for that?

          Because Democrats are war mongering lying assholes who supported it then and support it now.

      • Night Owl January 3, 2023 at 6:28 pm #

        Even if they said it was not genuine, it would never stick.

        I posted links to about 100 videos off of that laptop from a Chinese media site well over a year ago. Showed him doing all kinds of stuff. Waving a gun around, plowing hookers, posing naked post sex with his sister Ashley, etc.

        Dude even had several of the vids on sites like PornHub.

        The chain of custody for the laptop was well documented. It went from Hunter Biden to the repair shop bro, who turned it over. He even had Biden’s signed work order.

        Everything else is Shareblue nonsense.

    In the Better Late Than Never department,
    I just want to thank JHK for the outstanding previous post with its comprehensive tying together of “Christmas Past” with “Christmas Future.”

    Well and truly worthy of Janus, “the god of beginnings, gates, transitions, time, duality, doorways,[2] passages, frames, and endings. He is usually depicted as having two faces. The month of January is named for Janus (Ianuarius).[3] . . .

    “The name of the god I?nus, mean[s] in Latin ‘arched passage, doorway’, . . .

    “From Ianus derived ianua (“door”),[9] and hence the English word “janitor” (Latin, ianitor). ”

    Whoa!!
    Today JHK invokes our our DC janitor gods to clean up the current squalid mess.
    I sure hope they are paying attention.

    For RR

    Some facts for you

    MYNBC.COM Thursday June 9. 2022
    Alec Schemmel/ The National Desk

    TitleTrump administration was ready to deploy National Guard on Jan. 6, Capitol Police timeline shows

    Paragraph 1

    “A Capitol police timeline of the days and weeks surroundingJan.6 shows former President Trump’s Department of Defense (DOD) offered the National Guards assistance in the days leading up to the violent attacks on the US Capitol, validating claims from the Trump administration officials that were said to be false by Liberal fact checkers.”

    Further

    “What we also know is that President Trump wanted to make sure that the peoplethat came, that there was a safe environment for that kind of assembly. And I’ve said that publically before, the 10000 National Guard troops that he wanted to make sure that everything was safe and secure. Obviously having those National Guards available, was actually the reason they were able to respond when they did, was becausr President Trump put them on alert.”
    Mark Meadows to Sean Hannity

    “Liberal fact checkers like the Washington Post and Politifact argued the claim about National Guard assistance coming from Meadows and other top Trump administration officials was false, but an official timeline of the events leading up to Jan. 6 apparently shows different.”

    JohnAZ The rest of the article expounds on the happenings involving the Trump administration, the Capitol Police and the Guard. It is documented in Capitol records. Also documented is that the Sergeant of Arms of the Senate refusal for the Guard on the 6th and reported to Schumer thus. This is such an overt lie by the media, what else can be believed?

    If I remember right, the Committee did not read the Capitol Police reports and guidelines. No wonder.

        The shedding is of the spike protein, which you must know is produced by the body of the person injected with the GMO product.

        That is its stated purpose, you must know, since that is the Official Story.

    • SoftStarLight January 3, 2023 at 12:36 am #

      Terrifying. It makes me think about when I briefly seriously considered wearing saran wrap because of fear that the injected were shedding everywhere. Dr. McCullough though says that he isn’t sure the jabbed are shedding by breathing out and stuff. At the end he said that it looks like the injections are permanent so that shedding will always happen when someone is jabbed. So that is a problem if your significant other is jabbed and you are not. I’m single so I don’t have to worry about that quandary.
