While the China-sponsored hologram known as Joe Biden dazzled a sparsely-filled House chamber Wednesday night with a plan to turn the USA into the Big Rock Candy Mountain, events were spinning out of control so fast elsewhere that Rachel Maddow’s head was revolving like the demon-possessed little girl in The Exorcist, spewing a pea soup stream of Woke hysteria at her credulous audience. What’s got her noggin in a twist?

“Conspiracy Theorists” are auditing the 2020 election ballots in Arizona, causing “grave concern,” she gushed. An army of DC-based Lawfare attorneys attempted to quash the audit earlier in the week on the grounds that the vote had already been certified and that was that. But Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Daniel Martin ruled otherwise, that it was the prerogative of the state Senate to authorize it, and the audit continues. Democrats continue trying desperately to hit the pause button on the process. The venue, an old civic arena, is only rented until May 14, so physically disrupting the audit may be their only hope to prevent discovery of massive, widespread election fraud — exactly what the Democrats have aimed their firehose of propaganda against since last November.

The question is: what actually happens if the auditors come up with clear and conclusive evidence proving that the ballot count was wildly incorrect due to fraud? Might the Arizona legislature have to de-certify the results? One big tamale is the US Senate seat that former astronaut Mark Kelly, Democrat, took from Republican Martha McSally, giving the Dems a 50 plus one (Kamala Harris) vote advantage. Whoops, there goes Ol’ Joe’s agenda, right there. Might Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan have to submit to audits? Will it take lawsuits to prompt the courts in those states to order it? More importantly, does it shift public opinion further in the direction of cynicism and mistrust of the establishment — including their local officials and the news media?

The numbers are already pretty grim: 70 percent of Republicans and 30 percent of Democrats say they doubt the veracity of the 2020 election. Will the discovery that massive, widespread election fraud actually occurred lead to a constitutional crisis? How will Joe Biden survive in office if a growing percentage of the public sees him as illegitimate? And what might happen if the establishment attempts to blow the whole matter off? Can they still say “nothing to see” when the public has seen so much that they can’t unsee?

None of that will happen in a vacuum. Plenty of other events are roiling in the background with the potential to go critical. Joe Biden’s proposals to jack the US economy by $5-plus-trillion won’t be very good for the credibility of the US dollar, with other countries already eager to dissociate themselves from dollar-based global trade payment arrangements. But that’s just financial esoterica compared to what’s happening on-the-ground across America, with households running on debt and back payments for rent and mortgages piling up, and landlords and banks taking the hit in the meantime. There’s no Heimlich maneuver for a nation choking on debt. And that plan to become the Big Rock Candy Mountain, where they hung the jerk who invented work, is liable to disappoint even the mesmerists in the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Also, meanwhile, the US continues to stupidly stir the pot in Ukraine, to provoke war over the breakaway Donbass region in order to give NATO a reason to exist. The Russians don’t want or need to take responsibility for what has become a failed state. But Ukraine has been their buffer from European invasions for centuries and they won’t permit it to become a forward base-of-operations for NATO. Does the USA actually have any real interests there — other than to justify the earnings of defense contractors? The Biden family is not even taking any more payments out of there (as far as we know).

When it comes to real geopolitical friction, look in the other direction, at China. Not only is US weakness vividly obvious to them, they are substantially responsible for it, having successfully launched the bio-weapon Wuhan virus that pushed the disordered US economy over a cliff, and then helped install their errand boy in the oval office. Among other stupidities, the USA allowed most of its advanced microchip manufacturing capacity to relocate in Taiwan. We can’t run anything here from cars and refrigerators to municipal water systems, and probably even our war weaponry, without continuous supply and resupply of these chips. Game this out.

Then there is the fantastically stupid agitation and provocation on the home-front of the Democratic Party-sponsored Woke Jacobins, who are too dumb to even understand that if you want a police-state, you need police. Rather, they want to live in chaos and anarchy, the Satanic version of the Big Rock Candy Mountain, where the looters play in the stores all day and the jails have gone away. Joe Biden pimped for that hustle Wednesday night, too, declaring the nation systemically racist and “white supremacy” the nation’s greatest domestic menace. Oh really? Not our own DOJ, FBI, and the rest of the Intel Community?

The FBI raid on Rudy Giuliani was an interesting development on that front. The little imp that is Merrick Garland may have chosen the wrong guy to mess around with. If the bozos in DOJ actually charge him with something, they’ll find themselves in a special hell of discovery — that is, discovery of conclusive evidence that the DOJ has become a criminal operation actively working against the public interest. I daresay the truth is that just about everything the DOJ has done for the past five years involves the covering up of their own crimes, and a case against Mr. Giuliani will be just the wedge to open up public recognition of all that. That’s going to be a little bit of a problem when the people lose all faith that their public officials were elected fairly and honestly.

There’s a lot to push through and sort out in the months ahead. We’re all on ship, leaderless and rudderless, heading into a summer maelstrom.

    Nice reporting.

    I kind of think the raid on Rudy was more to prove that they can, and to see who he has dealings with that they might be able to dig up dirt on.

    Rudy wouldn’t have anything personally incriminating in his home.

    • MaryV April 30, 2021 at 10:07 am #

      Yes, seems more like a threat or a political feint, to scare him? Doubt he’s rattled much, he knows how the game is played.

      My first thought was that they really really really want to get their hands on the Hunter Biden stuff. But Rudy wouldn’t have that in his home, as you say. I’m sure he’s got that stuff in a vault somewhere with a dead man trigger.

      • Yohannon April 30, 2021 at 12:21 pm #

        He had it and offered it to them. They wouldn’t touch it with a ten foot pole. If they took it, they might have to look at it or explain why they didn’t.

        But yes, it would be good if he has made another copy as a dead man’s switch.

        • Redneck Liberal April 30, 2021 at 5:10 pm #

          So he (Giuliani) claimed anyway. I seem to recall posts around here over the last couple of years that the FBI already has a copy of the so-called evidence. So which is it? Has Giuliani made all the information on these devices public? If not, why not? If so, where is it?

          When I saw the title of today’s post, I immediately wondered if JHK was going to describe in exquisite detail how the GOP had lost its way. Alas, the first sentence encapsulated almost every conspiracy meme going today. Now, I’ll read the congratulatory back-slapping comments of like-minded conspiracists. Is there any hope left? I fear not…

          • Yohannon April 30, 2021 at 5:40 pm #

            Yeah I believe they do have a copy – which they’ve never done anything with. In fact, I believe the computer shop guy gave them the original after making a copy.

          • Redneck Liberal April 30, 2021 at 11:15 pm #

            Yes, Yoho, but you ‘believe’ a lot of things. In fact, like The Queen of Hearts, ’Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

          • MaryV May 1, 2021 at 12:29 am #

            FBI have all the Hunter Biden stuff. Just as with Anthony Weiner, and Hillary Clinton’s crimes, they will do nothing.

          • Ishabaka May 2, 2021 at 3:49 pm #

            It would be amusing if Rudy pulled a Wikileaks and dumped the entire hard drive onto the internet, for anyone to download.

          • MaryV May 2, 2021 at 8:54 pm #

            He probably doesn’t want to live in solitary confinement for the rest of his life.

          • Redneck Liberal May 2, 2021 at 8:55 pm #

            Ishabaka

            My question precisely. It’s like all the so-called ‘evidence’ of the election theft – put it OUT there, publically – if it exists, of course.

      • MisterBimmler April 30, 2021 at 5:57 pm #

        The coverage of stuff like Giuliani or the Arizona vote audit is always a variation of:
        “Today, Americans, so tolerant of differences ar forced to choke back the bile washing over their back teeth because lunatics and ‘conspiracists (Chip Berlet invented that one-the original Antifa) ae once again tying up our court system with ridiculous and utterly frivolous (plus racist) challenges to the 2020 election.”

        It’s like questioning any aspect of Covid. Fora like Reddit are stuffed to the gills with ‘cenrtrist’ orthodoxy enforcers. They pose as defenders of liberal values trolling ‘consrvatives’. But their purpose is obvious: clog up online discussion with a barrage of ridicule for any divergent opinion. How about short circuiting this mechanism by calling ourselves ‘opinion divergent and claiming spcial status as a subcategory of Woke?

    • Raindogs April 30, 2021 at 10:51 am #

      It looks to me like all of these scamdemic PsyOp crisis actors are now congregating in and around the Indian subcontinent region.

      Those shifty rascals!

      All part of the plan for sure!

      • Sean Coleman April 30, 2021 at 4:00 pm #

        I heard yesterday that India is the biggest importer of pornography in the world.

      • MaryV April 30, 2021 at 7:29 pm #

        India: 17 deaths.

        And covid19 still has not been isolated. They could have been hit by cars or died of cancer.

        Caught BBC using not 1, but 2, fraudulent photos of people ‘dying in the street.’ One was from a gas leak a couple of years ago, another was of a woman whose oxygen tank stopped working.

        But suckers gonna get suckered.

    • Sean Coleman April 30, 2021 at 3:59 pm #

      I suspect it is mostly childish pettiness. The mask slips and you see what you are really dealing with.

  2. tractorguy April 30, 2021 at 10:00 am #

    If the Democrats are so sure of the election results, why are they so afraid of an audit? “Never interrupt your enemy while he is making a mistake.” If no fraud is found, then the Republicans will have egg on their faces and look bad. Why would the Democrats not want that?

    It’s surprising how little you can find when you google “Arizona Election Audit News”. The MSM is really trying to bury this. Makes you wonder why.

    • O.G. Hawkins April 30, 2021 at 10:39 am #

      Nailed it.

    • JohnAZ April 30, 2021 at 12:11 pm #

      Yup! If Arizona shows enough fraud, about 10000 votes, and especially if any computer manipulation is found, the only reaction I see possible would be some form of dissolution.

      • bluedog April 30, 2021 at 12:58 pm #

        And what kind of dissolution would that be, we have heard for years all kind of stories that this state or that one is going to create their own currency with in state coinage, how they are going to do this or that when a state can’t even run its own electrical system leaving subscribers in the cold and dark with mega bills as if those meters were still running, repeat after me and you can wash and rinse if you care to neither the states nor their people will do jack shit but whine and complain, the message boards are loaded with it as if by typing those few words hey have done their share..

    • Redneck Liberal April 30, 2021 at 5:21 pm #

      Crap.

      I googled it and three sources at the top were NBC, Washington Post & AZCentral (AP). As I scroll down, I find links to NYTimes, Guardian.com, Washington Post, USA Today, and so on. The first Right-leaning outlet is Washington Times, and it’s an advert.

      Here the most interesting story among them. I’m posting this to pre-debunk what’s sure to come from some nutjob later on:

      https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/factcheck/2021/04/28/fact-check-false-claim-arizona-audit-found-evidence-election-fraud/4860721001/

  3. docmartin April 30, 2021 at 10:01 am #

    Everyone with half a brain knows the election was fraudulent whether they publicly admit it or not.

    • MaryV April 30, 2021 at 10:35 am #

      I concur. To believe that US elections are fair is just crazy at this point.

    • cbeard April 30, 2021 at 12:17 pm #

      That’s a big part of our problem. That is, most of the electorate doesn’t have half a brain. I still can’t believe people are so accepting of a completely fraudulent election.

      • Yohannon April 30, 2021 at 12:24 pm #

        Thus Democracy is contraindicated as a form of government. Most people hate thinking about big things. They want to relax when not working. If they think, it’s minute analysis about football plays or draperies. And if you try to make them think, they will hate you with a passion.

      • Wizard of the Saddle April 30, 2021 at 1:46 pm #

        People who accept a fraudulent election are endorsing fraud to win elections.

        At present, I’d say that constitutes roughly half of the electorate.

        Fraud, of course, is a criminal act. So, logically, we may conclude that the Democrat Party and its supporters have become an organized crime syndicate or the equivalent of the Nazi Party, a political party that behaves in a criminal manner most of the time.

        So, how can our Republic move forward in the current milieu, where one party is a criminal organization and the other party is mentally deficient, cowardly, and utterly incompetant?

        This is about as black pilled as things get in a so-called Free Republic.

      • David Webb April 30, 2021 at 3:37 pm #

        I half to wonder about the intelligence of almost half the people in this country who seem to believe that the 2016 election was undeniably stolen with help from the Russians, but the 2020 election was the most secure and accurate one ever.

        • MaryV April 30, 2021 at 5:32 pm #

          Right? Head-smacking.

          It really is about which team they are on. Not about logic or facts.

    • Redneck Liberal April 30, 2021 at 11:18 pm #

      Correct, but the rest of us, with one complete brain apiece, are not so gullible as your seething host of Trump grift-victims.

      • MaryV May 1, 2021 at 12:37 am #

        What’s your take on the years of election fraud that Democrat supporter Greg Palast amassed, published and protested for since 2000? Garbage, too?

        • Uncle Bob May 2, 2021 at 12:48 am #

          No doubt that’s all accurate information because, after all, a Demorat (or fellow-traveler) spewed it.

          • MaryV May 2, 2021 at 8:56 pm #

            That’s what I’m thinking.

  4. MaryV April 30, 2021 at 10:05 am #

    Incredible piece, James! So many great lines.

    “There’s no Heimlich maneuver for a nation choking on debt.”

    Perhaps my favorite.

    And: “the Satanic version of the Big Rock Candy Mountain, where the looters play in the stores all day and the jails have gone away.”

    Great description of ‘Democrat Heaven.’

    I listened to an Irish guy talk about how these people running the show now are in the throes of a psychotic breakdown. That sure would explain their bizarre desperate moves, and attempt to sow complete chaos, to distract from whatever they’re up to. Imagine the sheer volume of all the dirt they are trying to keep under wraps.

    Lets add to all this insanity the covid19 yet another excuse to usher in a police state (sans police – lol!), the border crisis, the destruction of schools, the collapsing healthcare system, etc. seems like The Big Unraveling is continuing apace, just as the neoliberals designed it. Is there anything these idiots can’t destroy?

    • Beryl of Oyl April 30, 2021 at 10:11 am #

      Speaking of schools, the refusal of teachers to go back to work is one of the factors driving the inability of businesses to rehire.

      Permission to open doesn’t do them any good if they can’t get workers.

      All according to plan.

      • MaryV April 30, 2021 at 10:22 am #

        And when they reopen, they will be OCD-driven indoctrination centers.

        I wouldn’t put a kid in any public school now. I would home-school.

        Similarly, colleges and universities are going insane. I would advise on skipping college, and attend a trade school or start an apprenticeship. This is no time to be attending one of those cuckoo indoctrination centers where you will now be taught it’s bad to be white and transwomen (men) and black people have more rights than anyone else. They are literally infusing every subject – no matter what – seeing things through a ‘black lens’ and people can wave bye bye to any literature that might include a ‘microaggression’.

        • Beryl of Oyl April 30, 2021 at 10:34 am #

          Some parents in Arizona took back their power from the school board, over the mask nuttery.

          • MaryV April 30, 2021 at 10:41 am #

            I absolutely love that.

            This is what has to happen EVERYWHERE.

        • Night Owl April 30, 2021 at 10:47 am #

          This is good advice. For many college grads, it can take a while for that piece of paper to translate into actually monetary returns. My auto repair guy here in Germany is a BMW specialist and makes an absolute killing. His shop is small, but he is a pro and can sustain a rather lavish lifestyle as long as there are vehicles on the road.

          TBH, I sometimes wish I had skipped college, as most of what makes life worthwhile is learned by living.

          • MaryV April 30, 2021 at 1:26 pm #

            Same.

        • neurodoc April 30, 2021 at 10:52 am #

          None of my three kids ever went to public schools. They actually learned in private schools what most of their peers from pub schools were learning in freshman year college. But, college was a different issue, socio-politically. For ex., my daughter went to a top20 public university, and came home well educated in math and science, BUT full of all sorts of bullshit ideas about social justice. She tells me that my ideas are ‘old school’ and obsolete re economics and distribution of money based on work and achievement (ie meritocracy).

          I’m seriously considering informing her that my wallet. from which monthly grad school support checks come, is now obsolete and no longer functions in the new world.
          🙂

          • Lawfish April 30, 2021 at 12:13 pm #

            Did that happen to you too? My son, who left for college a fit, self-reliant conservative has now after 5 semesters at a private college decided to be a woke snowflake. I cracked a joke last night and he got all butt hurt about it and I got a lecture.

            I would very much like to vote with my feet on that one, but he’s got 3 semesters to go.

          • Wizard of the Saddle April 30, 2021 at 1:51 pm #

            I feel for you, Doc.

            Sadly, the usual response of such brainwashed offspring when cut-off by daddy is to scream “racist” and rage about “patriarchy” and “boomers” and so on.

            Honestly, what were you thinking to allow her to go off to a “Top 20” public university? If I were footing that bill, I’d have insisted on a more responsible institution of higher learning like Hillsdale College.

            Not trying to attack you, but just wondering if you didn’t send her off to that state school without some trepidation that this might happen?

          • RocketDoc April 30, 2021 at 11:45 pm #

            All of my 3 kids went to public school in Alabama. They are all (mostly) off the payroll and in their 20’s. They staggered through college “unWoke” and with degrees and no debt. It’s their call where they are headed now. They don’t ask me for advice because they know I am full of it….

          • Redneck Liberal May 1, 2021 at 7:03 am #

            Ah…there’s common sense. I guess that’s why I’ve always read your posts, rocketdoc.

        • cleanearth May 1, 2021 at 10:32 am #

          Mary V – The trade people need to learn is organic gardening/farming since food is rather critical to our existence and some of it is beginning to disappear from store shelves due to climate change’s droughts, floods, really strong wind storms which cause power outages which tie up everything….and on and on. Govt largesse ought to be aimed at re-developing an Agrarian Economy as used to be……….as well as encouraging and subsidizing home gardens a la WWII Victory Gardens…….first things first!

          • MaryV May 1, 2021 at 9:58 pm #

      • JohnAZ April 30, 2021 at 12:17 pm #

        Listened to many interviews of folks trying to hire people into work. The number one cause of the problem is the stimulus payments and unemployment making it possible to survive without working. The handouts are a better deal than working.

        I hope this is a death knell for UBI!! We are actually seeing the government takeover of the workplace, just as the Dems want.

        Even Hitler was not this stupid.

        • Beryl of Oyl April 30, 2021 at 12:26 pm #

          The amount given to those staying home just happened to be equal to what the Democrats want the minimum wage to be.

          How did anyone believe this was about a virus?

          • Yohannon April 30, 2021 at 12:31 pm #

            Oh is it too high? Well the Federal minimum wage is something like 7.50 an hour. Think that’s a bit low?

            The unspeakable greed of the Capitalists lead to this.

          • messianicdruid April 30, 2021 at 1:26 pm #

            The minimum wage in 1964 was $1.25. Those five quarters now cost you 25 bucks.

            This is why my dad & mom could raise 6 children on a single income of 400 bucks a month.

        • Yohannon April 30, 2021 at 12:28 pm #

          You miss the point: Why are wages so fucking low? Communism would have never become so popular without the ruthless greed of Capitalism.

          What the People won’t do for themselves will be taken over by the Government.

          These people stay up at night dreaming about cheap labor. Paying another man a living wage is unbearable to them. Capitalist man is a swine.

          • Grace April 30, 2021 at 4:47 pm #

            And yet it was the ultimate ‘Capitalist man’, President Trump, who aggressively brought manufacturing and jobs, and hope, back to the U.S.

            And the new ‘woke’ not-so-capitalist President who just as quickly made arrangements to offshore everything again.

            To the delight, I’m sure, of all the non-capitalist serfs slaving away in factories in China and parts Orient. When they’re not jumping out of factory windows, that is.

            I sincerely doubt Adam Smith would recognize whatever it is we’re living with that calls itself ‘capitalism’ these days. But I’d bet he’d recognize President Trump’s version. And I’m not even a fan of Trump.

            This hasn’t so much to do with economic systems as it does with cabals of people in power whose common trait is a lack of conscience and ethics.
            .

          • Yohannon April 30, 2021 at 5:42 pm #

            Yeah and Smith admitted their character, but thought the “invisible hand” would constrain them. Well he was as wrong as wrong can be.

          MessianicDruid points out that the minimum wage was a $1.25 in 1964. But, hey, as least those 5 quarters were all minted out of constitutional silver that year. At today’s bullion price, that works out to an actual wage of $23,40 / hour, which was not bad at all.

          This simply confirms how much stronger our money was in 1964 when it was still really manufactured from monetary metals.

            Wizard,
            Well, consider that I, and probably many on this site, have many more units of $23.40 now than we had quarters back in 1964….

            23.40 ÷ 1.25 = 18.72

            Druid,
            The point is that I was impoverished then, and now, with 60 years of white privilege, I am much better off. It is a discussion of relative quality of life. The inflation has served us all, to a degree. Nice home? Comfortable? The money may be whored up, but we still live relatively well.

            18 times as much? I would be embarrassed to say how many factors of 10 that would be off.

        You don’t actually expect AFT and NEA members to risk catching the flu (something they’d done for a century, until March of last year) in order to do their jobs, do you? Why, teachers are important, so much so that they should be able to fuck off at home instead of actually teaching their alleged students! Meantime, Wal-Mart cashiers, truckers, railroaders, cops, and toll booth operators, all of whom have greater exposure to the China Flu, have had to report for work and risk getting the worst disease since the Black Death (complete with a 99.3% recovery rate). But they don’t matter: they’re nonunion riff-raff, by and large, while teachers generally are stalwart Democrats. Kinda makes you wonder about the priorities of “the party of the little guy,” doesn’t it?

        My dad used to love to sing “Big Rock Candy Mountain” so I know it well. I remember Burl Ives’ version. Thanks for the history of the song. Fascinating. This is why I love folk music. It all comes from stories passed along generations. The good and the bad.

        • Yohannon April 30, 2021 at 12:32 pm #

            No! My dad was a devout Catholic. My mom is Catholic, but really a closet agnostic. My dad thought he had a ‘deal’ with the “Big Guy”. If he went to church religiously and never missed a Sunday or holiday, he was going straight to heaven.

            I’m guessing my dad picked up the song as a kid and really never thought much about the lyrics’ meaning.

          • Tate April 30, 2021 at 3:23 pm #

            I love that song. I didn’t know it had anything to do with communism. Maybe Burl Ives was a communist. You can read the song different ways, certainly communistic is one.

            The idea of the Land of Cockaigne goes back to the Middle Ages. It’s maybe the inspiration for the Big Rock Candy Mountain. The children’s tale of Pinocchio features a visit to the “Land of Toys” which is similar to Cockaigne.

      Here it is. What we have been debating for months. JHK acknowledged that Covid may be a bio weapon, intentional or not.

      Now assume it is.

      Exactly what do you propose we do if this weapon is considered a success by the creeps in the CCP. What should the US do to protect the people of the US and the world from the globalist creeps and their executioners in China?

      Ignore it? That is what I hear on this blog, over and over. Ignore it, because it really does not exist. Do you think the Chinese would just love this reaction? Do you think the Biden’s and Bill Gates would love this? Shut down the US! Great idea.

      How about blow this little sucker away? How about vax it into irrelevance?

      What would your opinion be if you found out that variants were being seeded into the world by the globalists and China? Would you put it past our own government to be participating in this?

      So far, we have two methods to try to knock the virus out. The first is hygiene, keep clean, distance and stop the spitting on each other. The second is to get enough folks jabbed to reduce the virus concentration low enough that it cannot pass easily. That is it!

      If you have better ideas, please send them to the CDC. If a number three exists that removes the inconvenience of masking and the risks of vaccination, it would be wonderful.

      Ignoring the problem to let people get really sick India right now, and so many people die that the funeral system is overwhelmed, is not a solution.

      All things considered, I got the shots, feel fine, am relieved that the pressure of arbitrary serious disease is just about 0%.

      And when the next virus is released I will take whatever vax is deemed safe. Whether it is the flu, or Coronavirus or Shingles or whatever.

      • feralandroid April 30, 2021 at 11:54 am #

        As someone who took the virus seriously in March ’20, I am leaning more towards Covid being a big Psyop. How come we never saw the same level of devastation to people’s health like we saw in Wuhan? Did you ever see people collapsing on the streets in your city? Why would that situation only be isolated to Wuhan? Why did no other city have to build extra hospitals to house the sick and dying?

        Now they are trying to say that the same thing is happening in India, after the virus been in one of the dirties countries for over a year and they rolled out the vaccine recently? It just doesn’t add up in my mind.

        At this point I know more people that have died or had serious side effects from the vaccine, then who have even gotten the virus.

          I have been checking in on the FB group where people post their experiences and it’s pretty terrifying. LOTS of death, lots of hospitalizations, lengthy stays, etc. This sure is a big boon for Big Pharma.

          When one considers that Gates & Co. are all making billions off of it, I would think it would be clear what’s going on.

            Bell’s palsy is a bitch. I and my family have had the vaccine with no effects. Everyone I know who has had the vaccine has had minimal problems. To be absolutely honest–I received my second Pfizer shot on Feb 10th and I can still feel a slight soreness where I got it. Perhaps it is festering–preparing to savage me…..

        Fact: The population fatality rate is less than 1 %.

        Fact: That means by the numbers, it not a pandemic.

        Fact: Vaccines are not traditional ‘vaccines’ and they are killing and maiming people. So there is no ‘vaccining’ it out of existence. That’s a fairy tale. If it could be done.

        Fact: Said ‘vaccines’ are in experimental stage, and people are not being told they are being experimented upon.

        Fact: Big Pharma engineered all of this through Davos, WHO and WE Forum. It is a means to an end, and it is laid out in full for your reading pleasure at weforum.org.

        If this was a ‘bioweapon’ it sure is a wimpy one. And it seems to have replaced flu, cold viruses, pneumonia and everything else we used to have until 2020. Funny, that.

        Answer me this, JAZ, why do graphs show that COVID19 (supposed, it’s never been isolated) was almost down to 0 when the jabs started, and now there are more and more people with it? Things that make one go “hmmm”.

          Well, no. 1, it was not down to zero, it had leveled off at the end of the third and largest surge. Arizona has leveled off at 500 to 700 per day. Other states still in the thousands. No official reason for the third surge declining except a small group saying we are approaching herd immunity. In the meantime, a few mid western states announced a mini surge which the MSM built up until it too petered out. Are we approaching the point where the viral concentration is low enough to stop further spreading? Hopefully, further vaxxing will drive it down.

          Never been isolated? Give me a break, you insistence of this is ignorant. I responded to this before with pictures, I won’t waste my time again.

Even those “with” the virus, may not exhibit systems or feel ill! Look up the CDC’s US death rate and you will see NO DIFFERENCE from prior years.

            There is no “test” . The PCR “test” was developed as a research lab factory to manufacture (reproduce over and over again) a sufficient size of the same item for research purposes in hopes of using the product manufactured in the lab factory to assist with developing an HIV/AIDS vaccine. That didn’t work out very well, still no HIV/AIDS vaccine. It was never intended as a diagnostic tool.

            So, cases, cases cases… all using a “test’ which was never a “test” to create numbers from repetitive cycles. Repeat the cycle enough times, everything “tests” positive. Try some fruit, it’ll probably “test” positive.

            Vaccine; provides immunity. This jab thing does not provide immunity. Read the info sheet (package insert) around paragraph 2. No mention of immunity.

            The only immunity surrounding this vax stuff is the immunity from lawsuits granted by the ever-trustworthy US Congress to the big pharma companies making it (and making billion$ of $$$ along the way).

            A few dollars or euros worth of OTC drugs like hcq, zinc, ivermectin and a few others just don’t have enough profit margin (being out of patent for decades).

            With a 99.xxxx% survival rate in the total population why need a vaccine? And why authorize it as an emergency use experimental biologic agent released upon the general public with a huge propaganda machine behind it?

            Sounds shady to me.

          My elderly parents got the injection 2-3 months ago. Yes, they are elderly so that makes them at risk. Elderly people have more medical problems. Both my parents were healthy and well and walked a brisk 3 miles a day.

          In the last month, my stepmother was diagnosed with a Stage 1 ovarian cancer (no cancer ever before), and my father got shingles 10 days ago. My father had a shingles shot many years ago (an older version than what is given now) but shouldn’t one shingles shot last a lifetime?

          Perhaps I am conjuring stuff up in my head because I have a bias towards the injection, but this seems more than coincidental to me.

        They took down that group on Facebook where people listed their bad reactions to those injections. My daughter and granddaughter had the wuflu with a stuffy nose and general malaise for a couple of days, followed by several weeks’ loss of smell and taste. It was easy. They say they’ve had worse colds. The COVID jab is not a vaccine. It is an experimental medical device. If does not, apparently, prevent infection, and only purports to lessen symptoms if you do get it, and how can that even be proven? Last time I looked, you can’t prove a negative. There have been over 5,000 vaccinated people already having caught it, with 88 deaths. The way they are pushing this experimental prophylaxis for a bug that is about 99.7% survivable, and considering Bill Gates involvement (and his enthusiasm for depopulation), I wouldn’t take the thing. I’m pretty definitely a useless eater.

        I’m hearing about women in their childbearing years having problems with their periods, including severe pain and irregularity. I am hearing about young men with dropping levels of testosterone. I am hearing concerns about prion disease, which would punch a person’s ticket quite effectively and show up at a distance in time from the injection. It comes down to how much you trust your government, how much you trust big pharma, and how much you trust Bill Gates, who obviously lives somewhere on the spectrum, and people like that don’t think the way most people think and are unlikely to share the same concerns.

        They are talking up the problem with COVID in India at the moment, but they have a population of over a billion people, with 201,187 deaths so far. You do the math.

        As a bioweapon, COVID seems to have been principally designed to target Chinese males. I don’t think the CCP would be heartbroken at the loss, as there is an oversupply of them. I wonder what DNA the populations of India, the ‘stans, parts of the Middle East, and Italy (for crying out loud) share with them.

            They want everyone to be poor, except the super-rich, so they’re doing this fake communism, which targets people who are not actually rich, but doing pretty good, because they have to be dragged down to the level of the perma underclass…ie new Americans and blacks.

            Someone who makes a couple million dollars a year is not “the elite,” even if moronic millennials believe that is the case. In fact, people in that upper-middle and upper class section of society actually are good for society, and do create jobs. This is very different than the billionaire parasite class, who actually have most of the money, and who the supposed “socialists” in the Democrat Party do not want to ever tax. It’s not “the 1%” that are the issue. It is the 0.00001%. It is a couple thousand people on earth that are hoarding all this wealth. You can find the statistics. ”

            What is the condition of the 99%?

            How sick are they? How long are they out of work? How much of an impact on the economy is the mass of people who get very sick for a couple of weeks and a significant percentage that take much longer to shake the crud.

            Humans need to find a way to kill viruses, period. Until then vaccines are all we have.

If folks HAD masked, separated until the Trump group produced the vaccine and stopped the surges. The Dems and the MSM would not have won. When data from 40000 volunteers said that the vaxx was safe, a few opponents had to have their 15 minutes of glory. Millions are now post vaxx with almost no negative reaction. You keep bringing up all the terrible results with no sources for the data, and where sources are indicated they are repudiated by equally competent sources.

            IF, there had been no surges, there would have been no reaction, no lost election, Trump would have run a good vaxx program for the people who needed it. Just like Florida!

            Most people do not. They genuinely see masks as ‘just a bit of cloth’ and not an affront to their liberty. They genuinely believe that governments always act in their best interests and would not think to question what they are told.

            Friends of my parents, who are vaccinated and mask-up everywhere, have stopped going to a particular supermarket because they don’t have a one-way system inside.

      I was reading about a semi-profession curmudgeon who lived high on Mt Saint Helen and refused to leave. When it went off, he wouldn’t have heard anything because the sound goes straight up, drawn by the colder air. People further away heard the boom as the sound came down. He might have felt a shaking. If he was watching on his porch, he could have watched the awesome sight for about thirty seconds before his clothes burned off and he was turned into petrified ash. So fast he probably never felt pain.

      A young geologist also on the Mountain called and said, This is it. He sounded overjoyed. He died a happy man.

      One couple further down took refuge in a hollow tree, vowing to marry if they survived. They did and did.

    “As white Anglo-Saxons, as Europeans, as Brazilians, as Japanese and Indians – as people living in the non-totalitarian world – we need to know the truth. Our freedom is threatened. Our very existence may be at stake. Every government in the free world has been undermined by communists to one degree or another. Our schools and universities have been overrun with Marxists and socialist radicals for many years. Our culture has been manipulated by a sophisticated campaign of deception and disinformation. Both liberals and conservatives have been disoriented by this campaign. We have been deceived by false narratives, lazy journalists, corrupt politicians and treacherous agents of influence. And now, in the end game, the knives come out. Or rather, the missiles.”

    I really doubt the dems thought they’d actually be successful in the theft. Now that they’re in power, they realize they have neither an overarching strategy nor ONE team, with focus. The black Jesus must pay well to keep the Clinton wet ops team nullified. Holder, rice, podesta are incompetent without direction. Nuland could be a threat but I doubt she has her own org to back her. Pelosi must feel the hand of death upon her arm, causing panicked miscues such as HR1. Schumer too soft for the left and much too old to change his way of thinking. Warren, ocrazio, Bernie are totally out of their league on this level, and prove it every time they speak. Doesn’t bode well come midterms.
    Recounting verification of fraud will unlikely change the status. How does one invalidate a presidential race outcome after the fact? Have a special election? I can’t envision any scenario allowing a change at this point in the game. Carry it over to ‘22 and beyond.
    Red/blue identification based on policies is becoming much clearer. Passport or no. Open/concealed carry or no. Voter ID or no. Charter school or no. Something under the radar – gold/silver used as money.
    I really hope bidet and heelsup (is she alive?) get really radicalized to further identify Red/blue state status. Balkanization based on values/no values.

    “There’s no Heimlich maneuver for a nation choking on debt.”

    Wait . . . you can’t solve a debt problem by printing more money? Well we have a new plan!! Lower interest rates to zero while abolishing all form of cash and replacing it with digital “money”. That way you can’t take your money out of the bank while we lower the balance on a daily basis.
    Plus, we can instantly confiscate it, or program your “dollars” so that they can only be used in a limited/defined geographical area for items of our choosing. And that way hyperinflation isn’t a problem — we don’t have to print larger bills, we just do a daily/hourly/per second adjustment using our handy-dandy computers here at Central Bank Land (main headquarters, Bank of International Settlements, Basel, Switzerland, Rothschild Inc).

    “Among other stupidities, the USA allowed most of its advanced microchip manufacturing capacity to relocate in Taiwan.”

    Yes, as well as the majority of the former US industrial base moved to mainland China. Do you really think that China would hesitate to nationalize every single US-owned factory based there if we manage to start a shooting war with them?
    While at the same time, refusing to exchange goods and services for US digital dollars? I think the day is coming soon when that happens with or without war; China will announce gold-backing for its digital yuan in conjunction with Russia doing the same with the ruble. At that point, only commodity-backed currencies will be accepted . . .

        Interest rates on credit cards have been around 22 to 25% for a long time and even if you pay the minimum on the bill every month it will take years to pay it off. If a couple spends $5000 on getting set up for a new baby and puts it on a cc, pays the monthly rate — guess how old Junior will be when the balance is zero? 35. And this racket’s home state is now and has been for a very long time — Delaware.

      I will never forget NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani explaining that he and his team did not go to New York City’s brand new Emergency Response Center in WTC7 that Tuesday because they were warned that WTC7 would soon collapse. … … !

      WTF?

      Explain to me that one Bill or JAZ. A 47-story skyscraper that had been standing there for 14 years and then, with a few mysterious localized fires burning in the steel-structured building that was not hit by an airplane and:

      1) The NYC Mayor is told not to go to the place they Just built for Just such a situation because it was going to collapse. It did.
      2) BBC reported that it had collapsed with it standing in the shot. It did 20 minutes later.

      In the previous 140 years of steel-structured building architectural history (plus the 20 years since) no steel-structure had ever collapsed from fire.

        An alternative is that the folks in the know knew what a threat the construction design the WTC used was. People in the know may have leaked it with Bin Laden getting the data. Remember the first time they tried to blow it up from the basement.

        I actually remember a TV show showing the design shortcoming.

        Question, how could a demolition group have bombed and wired the three towers with nobody noticing? No one has come forward since saying I saw those guys in there doing something suspicious.

        Thousands of folks worked in those towers with no questions asked.

        What I got out of 9/11 was how easy it was for a foreign group to do what they did. I do not believe it is any different today. The virus just killed hundreds of thousands with little problem. Where is the counter to the Chinese we did in Afghanistan and Bin Laden?

          Now that’s a conspiracy theory, JAZ!

          WTC7 is the 3rd skyscraper that got pulverized into dust in the wind that Tuesday. WTC7 did not have whatever Popular Mechanic’s-identified flaw that WTC1 & WTC2 suffered for almost 30 years.

          WTC7 was built 15 years later with completely different architecture than of the twins.

          Office towers are constantly having weekend outages for myriad reasons.

          You are incorrect. People have come forward discussing the strange goings-on of Marvin Bush’s running of WTC Security in the weekends prior to that Tuesday.

          Those buildings, all 3 of them, were wired for demolition. We all know that.

          Thousands of people were like, “Gee, too bad we can’t have an office pow-wow and get extra work done Saturday this weekend on account of the building maintenance.” That’s what they be like.

          I … we have a bridge for sale, JAZ. It’s crazy to sell such a money-maker but my business partner’s aunt needs to save the estate and they need the money ASAP. Google it up. It’s called The Brooklyn Bridge. It’s got a great view of Larry Silverstein’s new WTC1.

          • O.G. Hawkins April 30, 2021 at 9:11 pm #

            Yes, you read that Right. Dubya’s brother, Marvin Bush, was a mover & a shaker of all sorts of failed Security. If Marv were in on it (as Bushes are apt to do), you’d be able wire WTC1 & WTC2 & WTC7 to demolish into their own footprint exactly like the World witnessed that Tuesday.

            Such an investigation could reveal some embarrassing Bush family connections with a company “that intersected the weapons and targets on a day of national tragedy.” As Margie Burns reports in The American Reporter, an electronic daily newspaper, Marvin P. Bush, the president’s younger brother, was a principal in a company called Securacom that provided security for the World Trade Center, United Airlines, and Dulles International Airport. The company, Burns noted, was backed by KuwAm, a Kuwaiti-American investment firm on whose board Marvin Burns also served.

            I will start a new topic with it at the bottom of CFN.

          • Sean Coleman April 30, 2021 at 4:44 pm #

            I am interested in the subject although I always skipped it until very recently. Serious analysts like Matthew Johnson and (I think) E Michael Jones do not believe the official story. Indeed, Johnson ridicules it. (There are interesting anomalies, like Kevin Barrett of False Flag Weekly News, who rejects the official story when it comes to the WTC but is sceptical of the electoral fraud claims.)

            My position had always been strongly sceptical of the sceptics, that is, I accepted the official version. That is because I am suspicious of sensationalism and of people’s ability to do do even basic fact checking. The problem is finding out where to find it argued in detail and cogently and where counter-arguments are dealt with. This is possible with the Holocaust, for example, but I have not really found any video or podcast exploring the WTC in depth, or the JFK assassination.

          • MaryV April 30, 2021 at 6:00 pm #

            @Sean, you’ve got it backwards. The official story makes sweeping claims and is not very detailed.

            The people who have delved into every single aspect of it are the skeptics.

            There are volumes written on it, videos galore, books, etc. I wouldn’t even know where to start, but I’ve probably spent months of my life reading everything I get my hands on.

            I have zero doubt it was an inside job.

          • Sean Coleman May 1, 2021 at 7:19 pm #

            Mary, I just want to get the best sources rather than waste my time wading through repetetive, excitable videos of collapsing buildings and precious little detail, apart from “this is obviously a controlled explosion”, and even then you never know if it has been checked for accuracy. What I have learnt from the likes of Moor Larkin (who has studied the Savile legend in obsessive detail) is that every alleged fact has to be checked.

            I have just come across James Perloff and he looks promising.

          • Sean Coleman May 1, 2021 at 7:30 pm #

            And I have not even got to the WTC with Perloff yet but have spent a most interesting two hours considering Pearl Harbour, the Lusitania, Korea, The Council for Foreing Relations, WWI, the setting up of the Fed, the setting up of obscure Yale professor Woodrow Wilson to bring in incoime tax, join the War and set up the League of Nations, Vietnam, the ownership of the media and a few other things I have already forgotten so I willl have to listen to it all over again. He is very good. And yesterday I was listening to Antony Sutton explain how the primary sources show clearly that the US bankrolled the Boilsheviks, the Nazis and FDR too.

      Yep, GOP and Dems both are now Deep State.

      Remember that Deep State are believers in Ultimate federal power, that the socialist, fascist communist styles are better than a capitalistic republic.

      You are right! Trump was an anti-Deep State populist who was overwhelmed by the Deep State forces.

      A huge question, if not Trump, who?

      Who is going to lead the Balkanization that is needed?

      It will soon be the Deep State (GOP+ Dems) against whatever succeeds Trump. Half this country needs a leader, a true leader! Trump was a manager, not a leader.

      • Beryl of Oyl April 30, 2021 at 12:22 pm #

        That’s interesting. I was having a conversation with someone about the workplace and management practices, and he told me he was taught that you don’t manage personnel, you lead.

        I still don’t understand how a man who made a second career out of saying “You’re fired” couldn’t manage to do it when he was president.

        • JohnAZ April 30, 2021 at 12:39 pm #

          Yup, the explanation is that there was nobody left in DC to hire on in the executive branch that was not integral to the Deep State.

          Nobody!!

          I think once Trump saw wha he had to work with, he brought in his family into the West Wing as they were the only folks he trusted.

          If this was the case, it gives a pretty good idea of how far down the Leftist pike we really were in 2016, 2020 and now.

          Bill Barr will become the latest Benedict Arnold to the populist cause. Remember though, his feelings are that he was being loyal to the Deep State, like most of Trumps hires. He never stood a chance, his loyal employees were his worst enemies.

          • Yohannon April 30, 2021 at 12:57 pm #

            Reality is round. Go far enough East and you’re in the West. Or West, East. Or Left, Right. Or Right, Left. North, South. South, North.

            The Deep State is both Capitalist and Communist. Left and Right.

            Agreed.

        • Night Owl April 30, 2021 at 3:27 pm #

          Because both parties are in on the take. The “intelligence” community runs the show. After 9/11, I think things went downhill fast. That was the event they used to take over, and we went quasi-police state. Go back and look at what Snowden and Wikileaks exposed.

          Trump was surrounded. The media coverage alone gave it away.

      • Hereward the Woke April 30, 2021 at 3:03 pm #

        Sort of agree. The dems stole the election and their aim is to finish Obama’s job of destroying America. However, much as I admire a lot of what Trump did, I almost hope he doesn’t come back. Firstly, because the economy is on suicide watch and it’s best if the dems are left holding the baby; and secondly, because we need someone with Trump’s populist touch, who hates the DS, but who is far more incisive and ruthless. The only person I can think of who comes close to that is De Santis. Mitt Romney need not apply.

        • JohnAZ April 30, 2021 at 3:28 pm #

          Mitt Romney is a socialist. Mormons believe in central control, their Church. The Church has a dream of Deseret, which is the US as a Mormon state.

            They’re not alone …there are millions of hardcore Christians in America who fervently want the country to be a theocratic state under (their) god.

            Just this week, Montana Governor, Greg Gianforte, signed legislation authorizing so-called people of faith to challenge any government regulation they claim interferes with their religious beliefs.

            The new Montana law “weaponizes” the fanatical evangelical religion against the LGBTQ community, women, and any Montana resident the fundamentalist Christians decide to target.

            The First Amendment expressly prohibits an established religion, but states with Republican majorities don’t give a toss about the US Constitution.

    The democratic US has high unemployment, social unrest, political turmoil, a rising crime rate, high inflation and a growing mountain of debt that will be impossible to pay off. We are now desperately seeking a leader with the ability to restore our country to its former glory.

      How did Hitler “fix” Germany’s hyperinflation. He built weapons and went to war.

      How did FDR fix the US’s deflation! He built weapons and went to war.

      How did Reagan pull us out of hyper inflation in the 70’s and early 80’s?

      He built weapons and then saber rattled. Bush saw the housing crisis coming and, you got it, went to war.

        He built weapons because he knew he was going to be attacked by Capitalism/Communism. He was.

        And yes, if hadn’t been, he would have invaded Russia sooner or later. Fallen Man does fallen things. If you don’t, you will be enslaved by those that do.

          I expect you’re familiar with “Suvorov’s” thesis that Barbarossa pre-empted a Soviet attack on western Europe. He makes a rather convincing case that the Soviet army in June 1941 was offensive in nature and occupied positions from which to launch an attack and not to organize a defense.

          • Yohannon April 30, 2021 at 5:57 pm #

            During the “sitzkrieg”, German agents pretending to be partisans in the Netherlands contacted British Intelligence and asked what they should do. They were told to a) Bring Germany back to International Banking and its usury, b) reject National Socialism, and c) kill Adolf Hitler.

            Yes, the Russian army was massing on the borders of Germany. He had no choice but to attack. Given what he was up against, Germany’s chances were always pretty slim. Only a new super weapon could have brought it to an even draw.

            HIs military mistakes only hastened the inevitable.

          • Blackbird April 30, 2021 at 6:52 pm #

            If he’d let his generals do their job I think there would have been a good chance they’d have taken Moscow before winter. Would that have changed the trajectory of history? Not if he still declared war on the US.

          • Socrates-Detroit April 30, 2021 at 11:18 pm #

            I’m not familiar with “Suvorov’s thesis”, or that the USSR was lined up for “offense” (I’m neither agreeing or disagreeing)

            June 22 was kind of a late start. It was about six weeks late, actually.

            It was late because, Mussolini was desperate to have some kind of victory in Europe (vs invading Abyssinia and Libya in Africa). So, the Italian Army in Albania attacked Greece in October 1940. The Greeks not only repulsed the attack, but counterattacked and occupied about a third of Albania–really Northern Epirus, which is really Greek anyway, but we’ll set that aside.

            By attacking Greece, Mussolini opened the door for Britain to “help” Greece. The Brits did not do much of substance–but now they had potential air bases, to zip up to Romania and attack the oil fields in particular, and be a pain to the Germans in general.

            Hitler was furious at Mussolini, because now, the Germans’ southern flank was not quite as secure. So, the Germans had to clean up the Italians’ mess. Germany overran Yugoslavia in short order in early April and Greece immediately thereafter.

            The Greeks fought bravely, but were outnumbered, let alone the formidable Luftwaffe and German armor.

            When the Greek Army surrendered, out of respect, the Germans allowed the Greek General to carry his weapons to the surrender site. The only army treated so by the Germans.

            The swastika flew in Athens by late April.

            The German paratroop assault in Crete prevailed, but the Germans took such serious losses they never attacked anything with only paratroopers for the rest of the war. Crete was secured mid-May

            Hitler himself lauded the Greeks, saying they were the only adversaries who had put up real resistance.

            Well, the German had to leave behind a few thousasnd occupation troops, and also redepoly their forces for the Soviet invasion. And that took time.

            So, instead of attacking in mid-May, they attacked June 22.

            If, all things being equal, the Germans had arrived outside Moscow SIX WEEKS earlier, six weeks before the snow, chances good they might have taken Moscow. While the end would probably be the same (Napoleon took it–and he did not have to contend with the USA’s formidable weapons production and large army and navy), many, many more Americans would have died in the war.

            If Mussolini is not egomaniac, it gives Germany six weeks.

            And, to show that good does not always win, what did the Greeks get for their troubles?

            A brutal occupation that was the catalyst for a nasty civil war (which gave many American officials the impression that, since the Communists were defeated there, the same would happen in Vietnam).

            Cyprus, a Greek island, was kept by Britain, and Britain is responsible for letting the Turks take 38%

            Greece today is neighbors with Turkey, which is an expansionist, aggressive nation that has never apologized or expressed remorse for it’s many crimes–after all, as Hitler wrote in “Mein Kampf”, “who speaks of the Armenians?”, and Turkey is armed by–you guessed it–the US.

            The bottom line—Greece whipping the Italians, the FIRST allied victory of WWII, was the pivotal event that ensured that Operation Barbarossa would not knock the USSR out in the opening round.

            And we all know which country had “staying power”–Russia.

          He also built weapons to take land for his Aryan race. It was in Mein Kampf. The man felt that the people of Germany were a master race. He was incensed by the Versailles surrender after WW1. When the French surrendered to Germany in WW2, Hitler made sure it was in the same RR car on the same site as the WW1 treaty.

          You are right about the more forceful nations being in control, something the Deep State has forgotten.

          A good example is the billions being spent on our military right now. For what? To defend us from who? Is the carrier navy the way to go now, or should we build battleships? Our army can clobber Iraq or Afghanistan but what about China, how do we handle the big boys. We are scared to death of Iran for some reason. We seem to be in a confused state of retreat.

            @JohnAZ

            Objectively, the Germans were treated very unfairly by the victors. Very unfairly.

            The Germans agreed to a cease-fire. The Allies blockaded them for another year.

            The Germans were made to pay huge reparations, when the “fault” for WWI was multi-faceted, and the allies were shared much of the responsibility for the war.

            As others say, history rhymes. Sometimes the rhyme is louder and more violent than than others.

            Unfair treatment of the largest, most productive, most economically advanced, country in Europe yielded a HUGE backlash–WWII. BIG Backlash!

            The backlash is always there. Sometimes it cannot be controlled, with bad, or even dire consequences.

            The Francophones in Quebec–backlash.

            African-Americans in the US. BACKLASH

            And the coming backlash to the above backlash….TBD, but it’s coming. Had Trump been in President, it might have been contained. Biden (aka his handlers) is going out of his way to bring it on.

            On the bright side, I see another backlash coming, in my lifetime: the backlash against the Ottomans, succeeded by Turkey is coming.

            Turkey, a benevolent neutral toward the Axis, which declared war on Germany in 1945 out of fear that Stalin would take some territory because of their pro-Nazi neutrality, has been aggressive since the 1950s. Coddled by Americans. But Erdogan, seeing the chaos, has expanded the list of countries that Turkey threatens or meddles, from Greece and the Kurds, to Iraq, Syria, Armenia, and even….the Crimea, even as he plays nice with the Russians. The lira is plunging, and adventurism and faux patriotism are needed to keep him going. It won’t end well.

            Alone among the great, or once great, powers of the past 200 years, the Turkish government has not apologized, genuinely or even superficially, or even acknowledged, it’s crimes of genocide against Christians, Armenians in particular, the pogrom against the Greek minority in Istanbul (Constaninople) in 1955, or the invasion, and murder and rape of Greeks in Cyprus in 1974.

            The backlash is coming. I don’t see it being delivered by modern Greece, though they may play a part, or may enforce the “post-Turkey order”

            And that backlash, I will welcome! PerhapsTurkey breaks up, or is broken up, into three nations (probably close to the Sykes Picot deal that sought to divide among among the pathetic has-been or wanna-be powers of 1915, France and Italy):

            1-Kurdistan, 2-Ankara–Central Plateau, and 3-the coastal periphery from Constantinople to Attalia, which will probably entail some understanding between the great powers at the time so they all have a piece of the action, much like Smyrna in China in 1910.

            Backlash usually can’t be controlled. Many people in charge, from the Old Testament, to Ancient Greece, through our day, don’t seem to realize that, and push things too far….

          • Socrates-Detroit May 1, 2021 at 10:03 am #

            ..much like Smyrna OR China in 1910.

            The Western Powers had special trading privileges in both, at the expense of the host governments.

            BTW, Great old movie on TCM called the Sand Pebbles, with Steve McQueen, from mid/late 1960s, evokes the situation in China.

            It’s fascinating to see how Hollywood portrayed China and the US, circa 1920.

    Re Giuliani: It is basically a fishing expedition, most likely to see if the former mayor is stupid enough to keep the incriminating evidence on Hunter Biden around in his apartment. The narrative of the MSM that Giuliani was involved in Russian plot to overthrow the 2020 presidential election would be really funny, if the US didn’t have four years of that joke already.

    Re Ukraine: The crazy saber-rattling of Zelenskyi making threats to defeat the breakaway republics in the East and retake Crimea didn’t fool the Russians. They knew right away that the Ukies were just throwing a smokescreen to a planned “color revolution” in Belarus. The massed Ukrainian armor was to help out in Minsk. The rumours in Moscow’s fashionable media is that Putin talked the Americans out of that excellent adventure. Trump’s appointee, John Sullivan, remains as US ambassador in Moscow and appears to be the point-man in the behind-the-scenes wheeling dealing. Interesting thing is that noone in the western media pointed out that the troops of the Smolensk military district were in fact on Russia’s borders with both Ukraine and Belarus, ready to catch any Ukie troops moving north north in a deadly pincer with the Voronezh brigade sitting across the border with Lugansk/Donetsk territories.

    • SW April 30, 2021 at 2:40 pm #

      They’re milking’ that cow for as much as they can get. After all, they have to have SOMETHING to put on the news now that the Floyd trial is over and the summer riots haven’t begun yet. Rudy is always good for a few cycles while they bring Breonna back to life and come up with a game plan for the father-son-killed-an-innocent-jogger hysteria in Atlanta. We’ll ignore the fact that our fitness guru often claimed to be out “jogging” when caught in other people’s houses.

      I get the distinct impression they have no idea what they’re doing or are going to do in Ukraine. Installing democracy? Beating back Putin? It has the feeling of “having bitten off more than they can chew” and the poor Ukrainians have to put up with being the latest proxy war zone.

      • O.G. Hawkins April 30, 2021 at 3:39 pm #

        And what a logistics advantage Putin holds. He can supply his well-trained cis army to war next door while Prez Bedpan flies supplies in from half-way around the Earth and dropped in by pregnant queers in transition.

      • Blackbird April 30, 2021 at 4:22 pm #

        Russian elections in September. Give Putin a bloody nose in Ukraine and NATO hopes he’s out the door.

        Also, create a “crisis” in Ukraine and maybe NATO will lift the “territorial integrity” clause in order to let them join NATO. Boom – NATO and missiles right on Russia’s doorstep.

        I also think the NATO presence in Ukraine (and the Balts) was there to storm into Belarus after Lukashenko (and a big chunk of parliament) were killed on May 9. Uncle Sam may have lost that one (a simple rescheduling matter), but there is still a lot of damage to be done.

        And the interesting thing is, they consistently show white men with black women. In real life, that is quite uncommon, and biracial couples are black men/white women.

        • SW April 30, 2021 at 2:45 pm #

          Actually, from what i’m noticing, is that white men are not shown at all. The only white men I’ve seen in commercials are the local guys selling furniture, or a new bathroom redo, gutters, etc. I’ve noticed a lot of the actors are of the single women, head of families narrative.

      I don’t know how you can watch TV over there. I stayed in Goodyear, AZ for six months back in 2009. I distinctly remember watching an episode of M*A*S*H: there were around five minutes’ worth of adverts, the opening credits rolled… and then it broke to another five minutes of mind-numbing ads. Man alive!

      It’s the same here though, regarding the make-up. I think the ad agencies are so petrified of offending one group or another that families are invariably made up either of a white woman and dark-skinned man or a white man and a light-skinned woman with a big afro. It’s very predictable.

      It’s even more imbalanced on the ‘net. Whenever I go somewhere like Apple’s website, or see a YouTube ad, it is overwhelmingly non-whites. I’m all for equal representation but the over-representation is blatant.

      • beantownbill. April 30, 2021 at 2:44 pm #

        A one hour tv show had 44 minutes of programming and the rest in commercials. Then I read last year that shows added 2 more minutes of commercials, for a total of 18 minutes. I can’t stand these mind-numbing ads, so I now get my tv through Hulu, which eliminates them.

        • Not_GeorgeT May 1, 2021 at 10:23 am #

            I do not remember the misogyny. What appalled me was how they ganged up against the straight-laced one, the man who I think took his job seriously, or the rules at least. Our heroes laughed at the rules (which I suppose they saw as responsible for “this old crazy Asian war”) but they gave every ounce of their compassion to their innocent patients. You see, they were free spirits who despised the conventional. Convention morality is such hypocrisy, you see, which turns things upsdie-down. The transgressives, the weirdos, hippies and drug takers, the carefree, unconventional hell-raisers are the genuine rough diamonds. Or the solitary hippies, gentle but resolute int he pursuit of self-actualization.

            Was it a mock suicide they were staging at the end, where they arranged themselves into a tableau mocking the famous Last supper painting?

      It’s gotten so bad that I’ve pretty much stopped watching television and I never go to movie theaters any longer.

      The only way to prevent this rubbish from being firehosed down your throat every minute of every day is to pretty much boycott all media and entertainment from Western countries – all of which are presently insane and in the process of committing societal, cultural, and political suicide.

        Same. I turned off the TV for good in 2012 and never looked back. I don’t read any mainstream publications and now, as a result, if I get a glimpse, I can’t even believe what I’m seeing. Same lies and propaganda over and over and over. Sadly now people are groomed into thinking these people are actually giving them information when they are merely gaslighting, manipulating, and pushing propagand.

    Yahannon, if its a commie song, it was way early.
    Sounds more like a childs song, not an ode sung by Seeger.

    Big Rock Candy Mountain”, first recorded by Harry McClintock in 1928, is a folk song about a hobo’s idea of paradise, a modern version of the medieval concept of Cockaigne.
    It is a place where “hens lay soft boiled eggs” and there are “cigarette trees.”
    McClintock claimed to have written the song in 1895, based on tales from his youth hoboing through the United States, but some believe that at least aspects of the song have existed for far longer.

    Scientific American article – “The Flu Has Disappeared Worldwide during the Covid Pandemic”

    https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/flu-has-disappeared-worldwide-during-the-covid-pandemic/

    And no surprise, they go on to say it’s because of masking, distancing and washing hands.

    You don’t even want to wade into the comments on Reddit. They all (and I mean all just lap it up.

    It seems our youngins, who, by the nature of their years, think they have the perspective to comment flippantly about something like this, and apparently us older humans (all considered “doddering boomers” in their eyes) have been “doing it wrong” for thousands of years, and we should mask up forever, while ordering in some Chipotle and surfing Twitch.

    And God forbid, the whippersnappers say, don’t even try to argue with some “covid denier” about why the flu has “disappeared”…they’ll just tell you “it’s because they’re recording those cases as covid now, or something stupid like that.” (which is apparently not even conceived as a possibility to these smug young omnipotent lads.)

        Meanwhile, every brainwashed 20-something attending a local college or university persists in running around outdoors with face masks plastered across their stupid mugs.

    For those interested in just how insidious the FDA is. From my friend who works in the pharmaceutical industry, running trials (being up close and personal, she sees what a big hoax the covid19 thing is):

    “As a note of clarification for those here who don’t know, I work in the pharmaceutical industry in clinical research. The following FDA image is from an email I received at work. I’ve added a bit by way of explanation so that it hopefully makes sense. It’s actually very confusing because it’s total bullshit. I had to read it several times.

    In clinical trials research, we recruit both healthy subjects and patients with specific conditions of interest to test pharmaceutical products and devices in order to ascertain both safety and efficacy. Before we can recruit any subject, we must confirm that they meet all pre-determined inclusion criteria (e.g., must be between 18-55 years of age, consent to participate and use birth control, etc.), and do not meet specific exclusion criteria (e.g., subject is diabetic or taking prohibited medications, etc.).

    In ALL studies, subjects are excluded if they’ve taken an investigational medicinal product (IMP) within one year of being dosed in a new trial (with limited exceptions), or receive an IMP while on study that is not the IMP under investigation for the trial they have currently consented to.

    Naturally, the concern arose in the pharmaceutical industry that with the advent of millions of people receiving these investigational “vaccines,” new and ongoing clinical trials would not be able to recruit or retain subjects by virtue of this exclusion criterion.

    Hence, many asked the FDA if these “vaccines” were to be considered experimental/investigational. Below is their response.

    This is as clear an example of doublespeak I’ve ever seen. In essence, we’re told by the FDA that because the “vaccines” are authorized for emergency use (while they’re clear to state they’re still not approved or cleared), they’re not considered experimental because the subject is not receiving the jab as part of a clinical trial.

    However, note that they go on to say that if the very same jabs are taken while under the auspices of a clinical trial designed to determine efficacy and safety (the very trials still ongoing now), the jabs are experimental. In other words, if you’re a consented subject in a clinical trial, the jab is experimental. If you’re an unconsented, ignorant Joe Schmoe who gets the jab because you’re too stupid to know better, the jab is not experimental.

    Totally fucking mental!”

    Here is the FDA’s Q&A, from the email:

    Q27. Certain clinical trial protocols have an exclusion criterion for receipt of another “investigational medical product.” If a participant receives a vaccine or other medical product for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 authorized under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), would FDA consider this receipt of an investigational medical product?

    A: When a medical product is being used under an EUA, it is an authorized (though not an approved or cleared) medical product for use in clinical care that has met the statutory criteria under 564 of the FD&C Act. The product is not being studied under an IND or IDE when used pursuant to an EUA, and the FDA therefore does not consider receipt under an EUA as receipt of an investigational product. In contrast, when the same product is used in a clinical investigation under an IND or IDE, the product’s safety and/or effectiveness is being studied for investigational uses, and FDA would consider receipt in this situation to be receipt of an investigational product.

    As always in the design of a clinical investigation, there may be valid scientific reasons to have an exclusion (and even a discontinuation) criterion for a medical product – a monoclonal antibody or vaccine, for example – whether that product was used under an EUO or not. These scientific reasons may include risks to an individual if they enroll or continue to participate in a clinical trial after receiving (or having received) the excluded product, or the potential impact of the use of the excluded product on trial objectives, such as confounding the determination of effectiveness of the product under investigation.

    2) Intimidate Conservatives who, like Giuliani, had the temerity to challenge the criminal machinations of the Left.

    3) Fish for evidence to use to target Trump criminally.

    4) Fish for ANYTHING useful in embarrassing, harassing, or prosecuting Conservatives in general.

    Folks, if anyone here still harbors doubts about politics being the ultimate blood sport, please lay all such concerns to rest.

    Nevertheless, I fully expect the the legions of liars on the Left to continue to spin the narrative (LIE) that there’s nothing to see here. The DOJ and the FBI are not corrupt. Move along now….

      “Among other stupidities, the USA allowed most of its advanced microchip manufacturing capacity to relocate in Taiwan. We can’t run anything here from cars and refrigerators to municipal water systems, and probably even our war weaponry, without continuous supply and resupply of these chips. Game this out.”

      Game over.

      Years ago I described the automaker’s near-future plans: fleets of on-demand autonomous vehicles.

      Subscription based.

      More ‘murican than apple pie? The F150.

      What does one go for today?
      +$50k.
      Chip shortage means low production.
      But these prices are not going anywhere lower.
      They are here to stay.
      That membership program looks more enticing now.
      Right?

      The plan is to get the ordinary people off Personally Owned Vehicles (POV’s).
      Particularly combustion engines. Particularly the segment that loves freedom and loves trucks.
      This plan has been in place for some time. The low hanging fruit libs are already in a Prius or a Tesla.
      Now it’s bubba’s time.

      Shifting to electric fleets. Shifting to limited production and smaller fleets.

      How do I get to my condo in Flardah on a charge? You swap out transportation in North Carolina. Or Georgia.

      The chip shortage, like COVID, related to COVID, is the opportunity to force change.
      The Trojan Horse.

      Back to the game?
      It has been reset.

      • Disaffected April 30, 2021 at 3:29 pm #

        Exactly right. ICEs will be obsolete for most people within 10 years, while POVs are rapidly getting to be already. Expanded leases, where you lease a car(s) as a service, will replace the current mortgage model fairly quickly, and the early adopters (people who regularly buy new now) will likely find that option very attractive. The downsides will only become apparent later, as the potential for bottlenecks, lousy service, and price hikes rear their ugly heads. That market will also stratify, with upscale customers getting much better access for a premium price.

        But again, the target market for all this is the young, who have in many cases already been priced out of the current market and grew up indifferent to “car culture” in the first place. The concept also works best in big cities, which is where future humanity is already being herded, and not so well in rural areas, which are being actively depopulated as fast as possible as we speak. When the dollar goes “poof,” investment in rural areas and smaller cities will dry up overnight and the migration to big city slums will commence in earnest. All the easier to control and eliminate with another BioTerror release, which no doubt is sitting on a shelf in some US BioTerror lab as we speak.

          The stories rhyme. Just as MSM “coverage” (aka active endorsement) of COVID-19 vaccines is one-sided, so it is with EVs.

          The EV has to be plugged in. At the other end will be a power plant.

          Presently, wind and solar don’t supply enough, and are not consistently reliable. You need acres of solar panels. You need to store energy, so you can supply it when it gets dark.

          But the EV is but a quick jump to the AV (autonomous vehicle). People will get used to driving less (because of range anxiety, and the hassle of waiting HOURS for your cars to “fill up”). And THAT is the objective. AV, for your own good.

          Next…

          Set aside that EVs currently cost more to make than ICE (internal combustion engines). That’s because of the battery pack. Remove that, and EVs cost considerably less to manufacture.

          But right now, they cost more. And that will probably be the case. Still, set it aside for a moment.

          AVs will cost A LOT MORE. The cameras/sensors will have to be very precise and very robust. A car must contend weather extremes and physical shock. The computing power to process the data they acquire will also not be cheap. An AV today would probably run hundreds of thousands of dollars. Those prices will not be coming down quickly.

          No one can afford them. But now, think of Uber, minus the driver. If the AV is deployed like that, well now, the AV can “work” 10-18 hours a day, charge permitting, serving 15-30 rides…. Well, now I can afford my ‘driverless Uber’ ride, because I’m sharing it with the other riders. When it senses it will be running low on battery, it drops the rider off and goes to a recharging station, where it’s automatically recharged. Day or night. Then it goes back on the job.

          It’s perfect! Safe (Zero accidents), Clean (Zero emissions), and “Smart” (Zero congestion). What’s not to like?

          AND, if you like your smart phone–well this is kind of like a BIG smartphone,, or device, with room for riders, connectivity–you can text, twitter, shop on Amazon, watch a movie–all on your way to your destination, and the car maker and google and Microsoft and apple can monetize your trip.

          Of course, it will also enable the corporate state to not only monitor you, but determine where and when you can go somewhere, or not. For your own good. For safety. For the planet.

          It’s just another control mechanism.

          While I find this dystopian and dread it, with our government’s obfuscation of things reaching new highs every day, I see it coming. I don’t like it.

          At the same time, I recognize that, as our host would say, Americans are too car-dependent, and when the price and supply of fuel go in the wrong direction, it won’t be pretty. It will be pretty grim in much of suburbia/exurbia.

          • Chippenhook May 1, 2021 at 12:43 pm #

            My guess is the folks hyping AV’s have never left their urban/suburban cocoon, especially in winter.

            I live on a dirt road. There is not always a clear delineation as to where the sides of the road ends and the non-road begins, yet those of us who drive it known the difference. The width of the road is anything but consistent. One section is barely wide enough for two vehicles to pass each other. We go very slowly as we do. How would an AV manage this?

            During mud season will an AV be able to tell the difference between the mud up ahead being the kind you can drive through vs the kind you will sink into? You need to know this before you get there.

            During the winter will AV’s be able to tell the difference between a wet road ahead and black ice up ahead? Will they know that bridges freeze before the road does? The difference between wet hardpack up ahead vs dry hardpack up ahead? Will they be able to even know where the road is vs the non-road to the side when it is covered in snow? Detecting all these kinds of things once you are on them will be too late in many instances.

          • Socrates-Detroit May 1, 2021 at 4:08 pm #

            Chippenhook, your points are very logical.

            Look at the mainstream news. How many other logical points are totally ignored, deliberately, because they don’t fit the narrative?

            Look at this space! Our host often simply points out the obvious, or informs us of things that the mainstream media ignore. The commenters do the same. And I appreciate (many of) you for it!

            You make sense, but your situation doesn’t fit the narrative.

            EVs are not ready for prime time. My hypothesis is that one of the hidden motivations is that the jump from EV to AV is easier than from ICE to AV.

          • MaryV May 1, 2021 at 8:18 pm #

    @Slugoon

    If someone rigged half a kilometre of explosives up the building, as I think you’re suggesting, and evil Dick hit the red button, aren’t you still going to be left with your problem of where the building went?

    That is not my problem. They claim that 2 airplanes made 3 skyscrapers disappear. The problem is that the official story does not explain what happened while it must or stand naked in its corruption.

    I’ve just watched the collapse videos again and here’s what I saw. Firstly, I saw the building buckle at the impact zone. A few thousand gallons of kerosene and all that combustible material inside would burn pretty hot, enough to weaken steel I should imagine.

    Not so. Jet fuel burns at max. of 1500F. Lobby furniture at far less than that. Steel melts at 2777F.

    A few floors in 2 of the 3 buildings had a flash of jet fuel heat for less than 5 seconds while the vast majority of the 267 floors that pulverized were exposed to absolutely no fire whatsoever.

    I then saw the section of building above that zone fall down as one complete unit. There was no buckling in any floors above or below that impact zone at that moment. It would be some feat for a ‘hijacker’ to pilot a commercial jet into the exact floor where that initial detonation was planned to happen (trust me, I know) and what if the plane had ruptured the detcord? The game would be up!

    It is well-known that slamming those airplanes into those skinny targets was WAY beyond any and all of the 19 Florida Strip Club-frequenting Flight School student jihadi Muslims piloting capabilities.

    It is not up to me to explain what happened. I need merely point of that the official story could not have possibly happened and ai can remove cards all over their awful stink pile.

    The weight of a building acts vertically so it’s not odd to me that it should collapse downwards into itself. Neither is it odd that the shock load of a large section of building hitting the floor below it would be enough to buckle it, and so on for each floor in turn.

    1) Buckle, sure, but pulverize into toxic dust?
    2) Floor after floor after floor failing simultaneously and symmetrically in 267 perfect pancakes 100% perpendicular with Earth? Would not one side or one corner fail first on one floor and throw the crushing weight askew leaving a 65- or 44-story stump?

    Looking at the aftermath of high impact air crashes everything gets pulverised into little pieces. Add to that intense fire, the basements and all the tons of dust and debris flying out across the city, I think on balance it wasn’t an inside job.

    The basement levels were full of cars and boilers and giant elevator motors. They weren’t a cavernous 267-story storage unit empty cavity awaiting debris.

    Speaking of the basements, though, how/why did intense fires burn down there with no access to oxygen for weeks? Thermite would cause such a Reality but thermite is not part of the official story. Hi-jacked airplanes can’t cause thermite basement fires.

    What else would explain these fires’ Reality and why did the official report simply ignore this Inconvenient Truth?

    This was the biggest crime scene in US history. Why was all the steel that did not pulverize shipped to China for re-cycling ASAP?

    Why was earth-moving equipment resurfacing the lawn outside the Pentagon crime scene within hours of that impact?

    Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

    —–

    When someone builds a house of cards, you only need remove one to bring the whole shit-house down.

    P.S.
    I went to YouTube to send you a link to WTC7’s obvious controlled demolition but could only find propaganda there.

        If one objectively looks at what happened that day and the PATRIOT Act already written and raring to go, one either:

        1) Accepts the fact that there Really is no Santa Claus (i.e. Adults)

        Or

        2) Hides under their blanky (i.e. Children)

        CFN is a clearing-house for thought and idea of many of the most pressing issues mankind faces. It is useful, therefore, to know if you are reading the words of a Santa-Claus believer or an adult.

        Sure , it was an impressive terrorist attack — that killed less than half as many people as die in one states auto accidents in a single year.

    • Slugoon April 30, 2021 at 3:30 pm #

      Well, there are rational answers to some to those questions but first what I’m not understanding is the idea that if the explanation is not satisfactory it must have been an inside job. Those are two separate propositions. If you don’t believe the official version then you have to put forth what you DO believe. It is absolutely your problem to offer a theory to support your position. The ‘disappearing building’ problem applies just as much to an inside job as it does to two aeroplanes.

      You say it was explosives. How do explosives make three buildings disappear? How do explosives melt steel? How do explosives annihilate matter?

      Steel softens at 800F and loses half of its strength at 1100F. It wouldn’t need to get anywhere near to its melting point to fail structurally, especially if the building was under-designed as I’ve read it may have been.

      I’m perfectly comfortable with the idea of it collapsing vertically under its own weight given the absence of any real lateral force. If explosives were involved then I’m assuming they’d have to set them off at all four corners simultaneously for it to fall symmetrically in your view, so what, now we’re saying they wired all four corners without anybody having any idea?

      On schematics I can see tunnels running into the basement area, which could supply oxygen to sustain a fire.

      I can understand the panic at the Pentagon to make good or cover up all the interesting stuff that must go on there. I don’t see anything too sinister in earth-moving machinery. Why do you think they were doing that?

      For now my Extra Strong Kitchen Foil remains in the drawer.

      • O.G. Hawkins April 30, 2021 at 4:10 pm #

        Slugoon,

        According to your logic, I’m hooped.

        Bear with me. If TPTB deployed a new matter-pulverizing technology to pulverize those 3 skyscrapers into toxic dust that Tuesday but did not include a disclosure of that fact in their official report, then it is impossible to dispel their official report. Is that Right?

        No. The onous is not on me to explain how they made hundred and hundreds of acres of matter disappear that Tuesday. The onous is on the official story to match Reality and Science so that their explanations match what happened and they do not.

        The matter pulverized into toxic dust. Many people breathed it and died. 2 airplanes cannot possibly do that to 3 skyscrapers yet that’s the official story. That is, they are lying to us.

        —-

        So a few floors out of hundreds on 2 skyscrapers out of 3 have temperatures hot enough to weaken steel for less than 5 seconds and all 267 stories of the 3 buildings all collapse into their own footprints? C’mon!

        JHK – I suggest that each CFN poster be designated with the blind-scale of Justice or a Santa Claus.

        • Slugoon April 30, 2021 at 5:49 pm #

          The Jet-A1 didn’t weakened the steel. The Jet-A1 set the contents of the building alight, which burned for an hour or so at temperatures well capable of causing structural failure. It only takes one floor to collapse and gravity does the rest.

          Now we’re onto matter-pulverising technology there’s not much more I can say. It’s not my area of expertise.

          Since the official story is most likely to me, I’m caught between the blind-scale of Justice and Santa Claus because neither do I believe in the magic man that everyone talks about at Christmas.

          • O.G. Hawkins April 30, 2021 at 6:29 pm #

            Ok. Now I understand your misunderstanding. Ok, you acknowledge that the less than 5-second heat blast of the Jet-A1 on maybe 5% of the 220 twin office tower stories and 0% of the 47 WTC7 stories.

            I misunderstood. I thought that you understood that for roughly 160 years there was never, ever a non-Jet-A1 fire that burned hot enough to collapse a steel-structured bulding. Ever. In all of Earth … until those 3 buildings that day.

            There have been towering infernos burn for more than 24 hours but lobby furniture and particle-board desks do not burn anywhere close to hot enough to collapse a steel-structure.

            Just those 3 in 160 years! 3 in one day in one complex?

            The matter was reduced to a toxic plume. People breathed and died. The official story does not go there on account of it is bull shit.

            They pulverized 3 skyscrapers that day and you be
            Ieve that they achieved that with 2 airplanes!

            Your logic is not holding water at all.

            Because in 160 years there has never been a high-rise steel-structured building penetrated at high speed by a fully fuelled-up jetliner either.

            There is not the data to say that a aircraft penetration could not make a steel-frame collapse like a stack of dinner plates … in exactly the way the twin towers collapsed on 9/11.

            It literally only took one – or perhaps two – floors to lose structural integrity then everything above and everything below will collapse too. It’s common sense physics.

            But as asked elsewhere – why is all this stuff so important to you? The 9/11 attack was used by Bush to start a series of disasters for the US. Not the least the setting up of a gigantic DHS surveillance regime. It is an extremely unhappy period in American history – but there is no credible evidence that it was an inside job.

            Same with a fraudulent 2020 election – no credible evidence. Same with Covid-19 being a Chinese bioweapon – no credible evidence.

            We could go on with similar observations, but I will invoke the mercy rule. I can only assume that once you accept / believe one conspiracy theory, there’s no stopping there. I don’t think it’s an accident that so many evangelicals are QAnon types – extremely credulous.

            I understand that, but I’m not interested in your attempted diversion.

            The issue is that you do not believe the Twin Towers (WTC1 and WTC2) could have collapsed on themselves, but you have absolutely no historical data to predict what a steel-framed skyscraper might do if hit by a large, fully fuelled aircraft at very high speed. None.

          To date, the US government has never been able to prove why or how the towers came down. And all alternate theories of what happened have been attacked by the McMedia, and the low of IQ.

            Does that also apply to those claiming the US Gov’t did it?

            The burden of proof is on the entity making the claim.

            The relevant authorities have proven that the buildings collapsed as a result of structural failure caused by a jet crashing into the two buildings.

            It’s up to anyone else to prove any of the alternative theories, whether pre-wired or Zionist laser-beams.

            The burden of proof is also on the disgruntled to prove that the 2020 election was fraudulent. They seem to be having about as much luck there as they have had for 9/11. LOL.

    ” Our only real identity become making money. So if someone else could make us more, then they got our jobs. It was the only moral thing to do!

    Capitalist Man is a Swine. Communist Man is a Swine. The Third Way is the Only Way. ”

    — Yohannon

    Some observations ;

    The Nation of Islam ( Malcolm X ‘s old outfit , before he went soft. ) once invited Lincoln Rockwell to give a talk at one of their gatherings.

    They also did the same with Muammar Gaddafi . ( He accepted , and attended via video – conferencing )

    I’m not familiar with Gaddafi’s ideas , except that likewise he said that capitalism and communism sucked , and called his way , ” The Third Way ” .

    To me it isn’t mind – blowing to consider that Nazis and Blacks might see eye – to – eye. But it might be so to folks steeped in the Western / American propaganda bubble.

    And I don’t know if Lee Harvey Oswald was a Patsy , but certainly in hindsight , while Gaddafi was no Angel , clearly he was something of a patsy when you consider the nightmarish wreck the U.S. and NATO replaced his regime with.

    • thirdcoastlegend April 30, 2021 at 5:29 pm #

      Adding to lbs’ comment, the Taiwanese folks who launched TSMC were trained in the late 70s by a lab in New Jersey.

      The people who started TSMC saw huge opportunity in being a contract fab on the other side of the coin from design-only IP houses. Both positions lined up nicely with the globalist project.

      Truly, the students have become the teachers.

      South Korea is of equal importance since they produce 65% of the world’s memory chips, per the 2020 annual report from the Semiconductor Industry Association.

      South Korea and Japan are also the sole sources for lots of interesting components that go into things like the F-15.

      You can bet that Kim has a standing order from Xi to invade, possibly level Seoul if things get hot over Taiwan.

    WaPo reporter says Fauci behind Wuhan leak.

    “Scientists fear criticizing ‘gain-of-function’ research or saying COVID-19 may have leaked from a lab because it would risk their careers and government funding, according to Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin.

    People don’t want to think about the fact that our hero of the pandemic Dr. [Anthony] Fauci might also have been connected to this research which might also have been connected to the outbreak of COVID-19, Rogin said.

    U.S. dependence on China’s supply chain has allowed China to threaten retaliation if the U.S. is critical of China’s role in COVID-19’s outbreak, Rogin writes in his book.
    The simplest explanation for the pandemic’s origin is a leak from a Wuhan lab, according to Rogin.”

    Top of the news today, a ‘Noose’ or something that looks like a noose, was discovered near an Amazon parking lot in Windsor, Ct. Hate Crime Alarms went up, Windsor PD mobilized, investigations launched, FBI notified, and the NAACP offered a $5000 reward for the arrest and prosecution of the obvious White Supremacist who would commit such a dastardly act.

    Most of these events prove to be hoaxes, so this most likely will be the last we hear about the epic Hate Crime. Nobody is even sure if there was a Noose; one story says it was a piece of rope laying around.

    Windsor is an ancient town, with a history that goes back to 1635. Its where the ancestors of Grant and Sherman, John Brown and the Tafts landed. In recent years demographics have changed; believe me, the new inhabitants won’t be celebrating Founders Day any longer.

          How tragic. And what an outrage that these stories are just ignored.

          But we did get to see our President pick dandelions for his wife.

          It’s also discouraging to note that the the Fed’s took Giuliani’s devices, yet while Trump was President, they dragged their feet on investigating the degree to which Obama and the Obama administration hand-cuffed President Trump from T-60 with their actions, the absurd impeachment of Trump for the Ukrain, when Biden’s son sat on the board, not to mention Hunter’s laptop.

          CFNation, and several of the comments, are an oasis or reality in the matrix of delusion and lies that we are bombarded with every hour of every day, by news outlets AND the politicians and “experts” they interview, and of course Biden’s address to Congress!

          • Socrates-Detroit May 1, 2021 at 4:19 pm #

            MaryV, I googled “how many US police killed in 2020”. You are correct.

            Here is one of the links

            https://www.fbi.gov/news/pressrel/press-releases/fbi-releases-2019-statistics-on-law-enforcement-officers-killed-in-the-line-of-duty

            It appears, that, even after removing “accidents”, more police died of “felonius acts” (49) than blacks at the hands of police (13–from “reliable” sources like USA Today/Washington Post).

            The difference is that we are likely to be bombarded with every black victim, whereas the police…..no.

            But I bet in most station house and police departments, police are aware–if only for the need for self-preservation and lessons learned.

            https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/factcheck/2020/06/23/fact-check-how-many-unarmed-black-men-did-police-kill-2019/5322455002/

            And the result the USA “open season on police”: Retirements/resignation up, recruitment down, reluctance up, and ….DING-DING record-breaking crime increases are the RULE, comparing 2020 to 2019.

    Trouble brewing in Illinois.

    It seems a distinguished citizen named DeShawn Tatum got ventilated by the cops after stealing a car at the ‘Chicken Shack Gas Stop’ in Rockford, ran down some cops in his mad scramble to get away, brandished a 9mm, ended up taking many rounds and is now dead. As the possessor of a stolen car, an illegal weapon and many open warrants, it appears Mr. Tatum wasn’t too eager for a meet and greet with the local PD.

    We’ll see how this one plays out. The racial outrage/lawsuit machine is still pretty busy in NC so maybe this latest tragic Club Member/PD interaction will slide by relatively unnoticed. On the other hand it could spark massive civil disturbances and impromptu springtime shopping sprees all across America, like last year. Riot season approaches.

      Dozens were shot, hundreds were arrested, and thousands were teargassed – protesters and innocent bystanders alike. During the military occupation of Berkeley by National Guardsmen, a helicopter launched a chemical attack on the University campus, children were surrounded by bayonet-wielding soldiers, and journalists were detained under the supervision of brutally sadistic guards. Following the upheaval, Gov. Reagan cracked, “If it takes a bloodbath, let’s get it over with, no more appeasement.”

    “Man is comprised of an organism, which is to say an organised form, and of vital forces, as well as a soul. The same may be said of a people. The national construction of a state, while taking account of all three elements, for various reasons of qualification and heredity can nevertheless be chiefly based upon a single one of these elements.

    In my opinion, in the Fascist movement it is the state element that prevails, coinciding with organised force. What finds expression here is the shaping power of ancient Rome, that master of law and political organisation, the purest heirs to which are the Italians. National Socialism emphasises what is connected to vital forces: race, racial instinct, and the ethical and national element. The Romanian Legionary movement instead chiefly stresses what in a living organism corresponds to the soul: the spiritual and religious aspect.

    This is the reason for the distinctive character of each national movement, although ultimately all three elements are taken into account, and none is overlooked. The specific character of our movement derives from our distant heritage. Already Herodotus called our forefathers “the immortal Dacians”. Our Geto-Thracian ancestors, even before Christianity, already had faith in the immortality and indestructibility of the soul – something which proves their spiritual drive. Roman colonisation introduced the Roman sense of organisation and form. Later centuries made our people miserable and divided; yet, just as a sick and beaten horse will still show traces of its nobility of stock, so too the Romanian people of yesterday and today reveals the latent features of its two-fold heritage.

    It is this heritage that the Legionary movement seeks to awaken. It begins with the spirit: for the movement wishes to create a spiritually new man. Once we have met this goal as a “movement”, we must then awaken our second heritage – the politically shaping Roman power. The spirit and religion are thus our starting point; “constructive nationalism” is our point of arrival – almost a consequence. Joining these two points is the ascetic and at the same time heroic ethic of the Iron Guard.”
    ? Corneliu Zelea Codreanu, The Prison Notes

    Yoho: Thus National Socialism is deeper than mere Fascist idolatry of the State and Leader, having a racial ideal and looking towards the future. And he sees the Legion as deeper still, including the best of these two previous systems, but focusing on the spirit – and thus the individual. We are not saved in bundles after all, as Emerson pointed out.

    Of course many Fascists were Catholics and would be fine with this. And National Socialist of the new Dispensation (Paganism reborn) would say they have their own spiritual foundation and individual aspiration thereto.

      I joined the Catholic Church with the thought / understanding in mind ;

      WHEN was the Catholic Church EVER NOT fucked up ?

      It’s been 2,000 years of muddling through.

      Consider our very first Pope ; Peter . By all accounts he wasn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer . And when the shit hit the fan , he heroically ran away and denied Christ three times before the cock crowed.

      Paul was very smart , educated , apparently well – to – do , and an all – around sophisticated cosmopolitan.

      He was also both a scion of a Jewish priestly family , AND a Roman citizen.

      Talk about ambiguous allegiances and loyalties !

      As far as current scandals are concerned , in my view the hand – wringers suffer from historical myopia.

      For example , in my view a far worse scandal , so bad that 700 years later it still should embarrass , was the suppression of the Templar Knights.

      Everyone knew , perfectly well , that the case against the Templar’s was utterly bogus . But the Vatican went along with that bullshit , in order to suck up to the King of France , who was no friend of the Church anyway.

      So it was a case of hanging your friends to serve your enemy.

      Like I said , 700 years later the shame should provoke blushing !

      Then there was the Avignon exile. The Pope left Rome , and went to live in France as a guest of the King of France.

      Except that , in a New York minute , ” guest ” became ” puppet”.

      Incredibly though , there are today folks calling themselves Catholics who think it an embarrassing anachronism that the Pope is a sovereign prince and the Vatican is a sovereign state ! *

      Gee , what could possibly go wrong if the Pope became subject to Joe Biden , or Angela Merkel , or Idi Amin ??

      Unlike religion , the secular state has such a spotless and unblemished track record ! * sarcasm *

      Historical myopia indeed !

      ( funny thing though ; They don’t think there is anything embarrassingly anachronistic about sovereign states of Kansas or Togo , or sovereign princes of Jamaica with salaries of 100 k a year , doing the vital work of manufacturing license plates , printing stamps , and issuing those all – important fishing licenses.

      But somehow it is scandalous that an institution superior in age to any of these by a thousand years should have any sovereign rights ?? )

      Anyway —

      where modern scandals are concerned , the real skeleton in the closet isn’t pedophilia or million dollar rectories.

      As someone , I don’t know who , said ,

      ” If you want to know what is really taboo , ask yourself what is it that you are not allowed to talk about at all. ”

      In the Catholic Church —

      Pedophiles ?

      Pfft , we can talk about that all day , every day , for , so far , 30 years now.

      What we cannot talk about is Francisco Franco.

      We cannot talk about the Carlist’s and the Falange.

      You might think African Moslems fighting to save white people would be politically correct and hip ?

      No !

      Not when the African Moslems in question are fighting shoulder to shoulder with Catholics AGAINST the supposed saviors of Western Civilization.

      To summarize , political polarization in Spain turned into armed conflict because the Freedom – Loving Spanish Republicans

      ( note , it is fair to say that the Spanish Republicans were fair equivalents of , or stand – ins for , The American and British Capitalists , and the Russian Communists )

      started shooting priests , burning down churches , and telling kids that Gay was the new cool.

      What really irks me about all of this is that you cannot say a kind word about Fascism ,

      even when the choice for Fascism , like in the case of the Spanish Civil War , the choice for Fascism was made in Self – Defense.

      Sure , we threw in our lot with Franco !

      Why ?!

      Because to do otherwise was to become a human door mat.

      Because to do otherwise was to offer your throat up to be slit.

      How the fuck is self – defense immoral or unethical ?

      I say , Viva Franco !

      Viva Falange !

      • KesaAnna April 30, 2021 at 11:32 pm #

        The above written in response to your ;

        ” Of course many Fascists were Catholics ”

        Yes.

        And not a God damned thing in that to be ashamed of.

        Certainly in the case of the Spanish Civil War , the American cavalry never did show up to save us .

        Because maybe they didn’t give a fuck anyway.

        So what the fuck were we supposed to do ?

      • MaryV April 30, 2021 at 11:35 pm #

        Excellent historical breakdown, and conjecture. I came to some similar criticisms of the RCC which is why I stopped going to church or accepting its teachings at around 16 years old. Got in lots of troubles with the Catholic fam but they’ve come around.

        Ratzinger was a full on Nazi! That was a fun one. They had to hustle him out of there. Then they put an Obama-like created personality in there. What a joke.

        I agree with akmofo that the Vatican is straight up evil.

        • KesaAnna May 1, 2021 at 12:41 am #

          Not sure what you mean.

          I JOINED the Catholic Church.

          Not only am I not a cradle Catholic , near as I can figure , the last Catholic in my family tree , on either side , was 300 years ago.

          My background ?

          I recall two incidents from my childhood . On both occasions my parents had to go to West Germany for some reason , and wanted me to go along with them. But I adamantly refused .

          I didn’t want to associate with / be contaminated by those fake German stooges and puppets of the Americans !

          Actually , the policy of the Socialist Unity Party , and the attitude of East Germans in general , was to play nicey – nicey with West Germany.

          So my own dogma was actually a hell of a lot more hard core Stalinistic in those days.

          Much more hostile to West Germany and the West in general than was the norm in the East.

          If I had remained in East Germany then hypothetically I would eventually have been a good candidate for the Grenztruppe or the Stasi.

          ( Or maybe rejected because my views were too extremely pro – Soviet ?? Who knows ? )

          And , in line with that , my views regarding Christianity were frankly hostile.

          My religion was the East German state , and East Germany was the Holy Land.

          But then , I would call that consistency . If a bad consistency.

          And a cosmological honesty.

          What I despise about Secularists is that they fancy themselves non – religious , when they are religious.

          Fancy themselves as nuetral , when they are anything but neutral , fancy themselves as dispassionate , when they fly off the handle every ten seconds.

          ” I hate Christians ” is actually a thousand – fold improvement.

          It would be an improvement if these people at least admitted that they worshiped the Star Spangled Banner as God .

          And if that is too much ?

          Then that is too much isn’t it ?

          Either the United States of America is no more historically significant than the Principality of Anhalt – Zerbst ,

          or it is.

          But it sure would be nice if they would make up their fcking minds and shit ,

          or get off the pot !

          At least my Workers and Farmers paradise had some fucking epistemological consistency.

          Anyway —

          I joined the Catholic Church because —

          — Jesus Christ founded it.

          — It’s LESS TROUBLE to leave to Protestants and Atheists to figure out how that isn’t so. ( When it is so. )

          — It’s LESS TROUBLE to leave to Protestants to work out how that wouldn’t amount to Christ didn’t know what he was doing in founding it.

          — Joan of Arc , quite possibly the single best and most exhaustively documented life of the Middle Ages , said the Catholic Church ( the same Church that looked the other way while they burned her ass ) was the real deal. And I believe Joan of Arc was telling the truth.

          — In my view Martin Luther was an asshole. Leo X and Johannes Tetzel were much more reasonable .

          — The only reason you can read Plato , Aristotle , Euclid , Ceasar , Xenophon , etc , etc , etc , is because the Catholic Church preserved their works through a period of about 700 years where the only thing secular states did with libraries was burn them down and use the pages of books for soldiers toilet paper.

          — You think human rights was something John Locke or Thomas Jefferson pulled out of their asses ? No . The idea of human rights comes from Jesus Christ , and his creed , which the Catholic Church preserved as I already mentioned through 700 years of secular rape , pillage , and burn.

          — You can read and write ? Then thank religion ! ( Though this is not exclusive to Catholicism , or to Christianity. )

          Worldwide , it was religion that built and maintained the educational framework over 5,000 years. 95 % of schools in America , 95 % of schools in Europe . 95 % of schools in Asia , 95 % of schools in Africa , with a pedigree older than 100 years , were founded and run by religious institutions.

          With very few exceptions , the secular state only got involved in education in a big way in barely these past 100 years.

          And , so far , their great ” contribution ” to education has been to make of the school a police apparatus and a propaganda ministry.

          I suppose I could list other reasons. But I suppose those will do.

          In sum , I joined the Catholic Church because the Catholic Church IS WESTERN CIVILIZATION.

          Period.

          You have no greater claim to fame than that.

          And all else is but pale imitation and gross exaggeration.

          Yes , it has faults.

          But you have no alternative.

          • MaryV May 1, 2021 at 11:27 am #

            Well, it’s all fine and dandy to believe all the mythology of the church. Before it, there was Greek mythology, basically the same stuff, and before that, somewhat overlapping, was Egyptian deities (e.g., Horus), that mirrored Jesus completely.

            So I’m not sold on any of it, given the years of research I put into it.

            I’m also not into cannibalism, which the weekly Catholic ritual emulates.

            Since I was raised as a Catholic, I know that most Catholics don’t really talk about religion all that much, they just go to church once a week and that’s about it. I don’t remember having any religious conversations with my friends growing up. It wasn’t on our radar. It was just a thing we did once a week. No spirituality involved at all.

            There were too many things that the religion couldn’t answer, and I’d get in trouble for asking them. Such as, why don’t animals go to heaven? Why only humans? Why would I want to go somewhere where there were no animals? And so forth. Also, a friend committed suicide and I was told that meant she went to hell.

            So I bailed and never looked back.

            It’s not really a loving religion, despite what they tell you.

            Then there is the evil pedo-trafficker Vatican mirroring the satanic hell they want you to fear, and hardly anyone will admit it.

          • MaryV May 1, 2021 at 12:21 pm #

            There was no literacy before Christ?

            Please explain the existence of Greek literature and the Alexandria library then, for me?

        • Yohannon May 1, 2021 at 12:55 am #

          No. He was made to go to Nazi youth meetings. Later he was in seminary and he was made to join the army. One day he just walked out. His heart was never in that at all.

          Or if you mean hard right in his general views? No again. He was and is completely in favor of Vatican Two and the new religion (basically) of the Novus Ordo. He is conservative compared to the Communists and Satanists. So naturally they played that up to hide what they are. But in reality has was not and is not.

          A parallel: A liberal of a few decades ago would be seen now as a hardcore conservative. They’ve moved the goal posts and the meaning of the word has changed. A real Conservative is now seen as “Nazi”.

          But we agree about your final point: Straight up Hell!

        Yes, Franco was a great man. He didn’t like Nazism but the West wouldn’t help him. Already the nascent New World Order was all in for Communism/Capitalism, not nationalism. So he accepted Hitler’s aid.

        And he beat an incredibly nasty bunch of Communists, the darlings of American Left. He came to believe he had been chosen by God, but never promulgated a Cult of Himself. He just shared his belief with his family and friends on occasion. In any case, the Fascists weren’t hard enough and failed to transform Spain: Within two generations the average Spainard considered Franco a villain and the Communists the good guys. The Left obviously managed to recapture Education right under their noses.

I was moving from the food tents back to our ‘camp’ and was caught up in a big crowd, and felt it carrying me along, and it was terrifying. That was the last time I’ve ever been in a crowd that size.

        And probably a large part of why I now live a pretty secluded life. I’ve got zero interest in being in a crowd ever again.

    K-Cars (how the K-shaped recovery is reflected in used car prices):

    I just checked my credit score on a paid service that I subscribe to.
    As part of that, they also monitor things like my car loans and what the car is worth currently.
    We have a loan on my wife’s car, which we bought a bit over a year ago. (My 2002 Honda is paid for.)
    We paid $20K for it (a 4 year-old Acura SUV) and got a loan for most of that, though we are down to $10K owing now.

    The interesting thing is that her car is now valued at just over $20K, more than we paid for it 15 months ago!
    I have been reading about the surge in values of used cars, but this really brings it home for me.

    This was a major ‘Aha!’ moment for me, although I have been seeing this train coming a long ways off, thanks to Jim.
    What we are experiencing has never happened before, at least not in modern times in the US.

    This is hyperinflation. Think Wiemar Germany or Zimbabwe from the 1990s to now.

    Inflation is pegged at 1.6% by the US government, but it is hard to say if that is fantasy or just science fiction. Independent analysis puts the real rate at more like 20-30% annually. Just look at the prices of gas, lumber, food, education, health care, etc. About half of all US dollars in circulation (not the paper ones, as there are not many of those remaining, and soon will not be any left at all) were created within the past 12 months. And the U.S. government is going on a spending spree, to the tune of $6 Trillion (with a ‘T’) over just the past few months. That is more than the annual GDP of Japan, plus Europe, plus Australia!

    House prices have more or less doubled in Canada over the past 5 years. But their owners are not any richer, as they still have the same house they had before, although now with double the property tax bill. They could sell, but where would they go? Every place has gone up by almost the same amount! It is important to note that more or less all of the increase in value can be accounted for by more money being created by central banks. Same in the US and everywhere. This is a gift to those that own more than one property, at the expense of those that own none, while those who own just their own home are onlookers (unless they also own stocks and such).

    The US stock market is booming, but nowhere near as much as the world-leading stock market, which is the Bolsa de Venezuela. Why is that? Because the Venezuelan central bank has been creating unprecedented amounts of currency, which has led to massive asset price inflation, as well as inflation in everyday goods. People in Caracas make sure they get paid in the morning and then quickly buy bread and rice before the price goes up, because by afternoon it will be much more expensive. No wonder folks are starving there (of course, the US has been blockading their country to steal their oil, but that is another story). The only hope ordinary Venezuelans can look to is Bitcoin, which at least preserves the little purchasing power they have. There is also a major property boom, with cranes dotting the Caracas skyline, building condos for upper-middle class folks to put their cash into. It’s unclear if anyone actually lives in them, as that is an afterthought.

    Back here in North America, the same thing is happening in the property market and now the used car market. Used Kleenex will soon be worth double what we paid for it new (I exaggerate for effect).

    This is nothing less than a financial revolution. Not one being carried out by the middle classes, but by the elites. They have declared war on the masses, and they are winning. They never fail to use an opportunity and the COVID pandemic, as well as the overreactions by governments in all countries of the world (save Sweden) have given them a golden opportunity. The overwhelming bulk of the newly created money is going to the top 1% of the top 1%, in the form of soaring stock values, increased property prices, and cryptocurrencies that are increasing tenfold in a matter of months in many cases.

    We all need to take note of what is happening around us, as many millions will be permanently impoverished as a result.
    Money as we know it is coming to an end, and with it the hopes and dreams of countless millions.

    And the government will not help us. They never do. They are there for one reason only – to help themselves, and they are very good at their job. Any crumbs that fall off the table will be for the purpose of distracting ordinary folks from the obscene theft that they are perpetrating, all in the name of helping us. They say it is ‘equity’ (not equality, mind you) they are working for, and they are not lying – they are working for the sake of their own equities, as in stock options in the big multinational tech companies that they work hand in glove with/for, those that essentially own the governments of all Western countries.

    We cannot stop them. They are far too powerful, and the tech companies that own them also control what we see, hear and read. The only thing each of us can do is try to help themselves and those close to them. You cannot stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.

    The dollar, and all fiat currencies will be worth less and less every day, every hour. Time to bail. Those who do not will be entirely dependent for their survival on whatever the government du jour deigns to give them. It may sound nice at first, but once they have that power, it’s game over for those that do not have a means of survival that is not based on government handouts. Even if you think the handouts are a nice and necessary thing, they will not – they can not last. The Federal Reserve can only print so many dollars before China decides to take a pass on sending us their manufactured goods for worthless (or worth less) pieces of paper (actually just blips on a screen). Even before that happens, there will be a backlash by the deplorables: essentially, plumbers who are sick of paying taxes on their work, when everyone else gets paid to sit at home and play video games. In 1-3 years, the Republicans will take over, at least in the Senate; then the gravy train comes to a screeching halt.

    This is (mostly) not about partisan politics. I did not vote for them, but the current US regime – much more than the last one, which was already pretty good for my socioeconomic class – is benefiting me enormously through asset price inflation, as I have been planning for this since 2003 by buying leveraged real estate and other inflation-proof assets. I am so thrilled to see the Democrats in power, as they will allow me (and many other relatively wealthy folks) to retire early, at the expense of the precariat (sorry guys, but either way you’re screwed). The cliques that run the Democratic party are now showing their true colors as the party of the well-off (the ‘diplomables’ is what I call them, and I am one of that group, as much as I despise them). The country will be destroyed, but it’s not like there was much hope for it anyway.

    But not all are as fortunate as I am, and I am hoping that they will start to prepare, before it is too late.

    What you can do: essentially, you need to borrow money at as low rates as you can get and use that money to purchase appreciating assets, especially those that can produce an income (houses, farmland, and even cars, which can be used to produce an income through Uber or Lyft if need be), or at least use whatever currency you can accumulate to secure assets that hold their value (precious metals, cryptocurrency, etc). Do not hold cash, at least not more than what you need to get through a crisis. Use what you have as a life raft that will not sink with more and more money printing, as you will need it.

      The money you make from you “appreciating assets” will still be worthless when the dollar crashes unless you’re fortunate enough to front run the crash and get out of US$ denominated assets. Good luck with that. Almost no one pulls that feat off, absent those who trade on deep insider information, and if you’re posting on this board you certainly don’t have access to that.

      Borrowing money in the meantime to invest in leveraged assets may or may not prove to be a good short term strategy, but you’ll still end up defaulting in the long run, which may or may not be a bad thing, depending on whether there’s a legal system remaining in the aftermath to enforce property rights. If not, you’ll probably get to keep the property, but good luck defending it or extracting economic rents from it.

      On the whole, the best bet is to get out of the $US now and the US itself as well. And even that’s not likely going to save you. The time to go was twenty years ago at the latest. The same ills that have infected the US also infect most of the rest of the world now. The few places that it hasn’t are mostly understandably hostile to the US and its peeps. You won’t be welcomed with open arms there at all.

    Yes, the mesmerists produce mesmerical numbers, theoreticians in august academies having provided the conceptual underpinnings.

    And not only that but the professors disseminate this balderdash, the ivy-covered schools they work for charging outlandish fees for what amounts to propounding incantations for the idiot progeny of America’s wealthy clerisy.

    I only say this because the only people taking BLS numbers seriously are those cretinized in institutions of higher learning. That’s what four years and tens of thousands in yearly fees results in, the systematic disablement of a healthy mind’s ability to think and reason coherently.

    Given the evisceration of the US economy during the past few decades of offshoring and globalization, is there anyone that takes seriously official inflation numbers? Is anybody that credulous besides university grads?

    We’re supposed to believe that the Fed understands the interlocking wheels of the cycle of production and consumption and saving and investment such that they were actually able to maintain inflation within a narrow band of a couple of percent. We’re expected to believe that they have such an acute understanding and such a steady hand on monetary levers. Well, the financial crisis of ’08 should have been instructive as to what they know and don’t know.

    Janet Yellen said that they don’t understand inflation. That’s akin to NASA not understanding Newtonian mechanics.

      Simple supply and demand says no. Print many more dollars, same amount of production, prices rise?

      Well ,

      one would have known all this was coming if one looked at social science skeptically , dispassionately , and soberly in …. oh ….. 1892 or there – abouts.

      Social – Darwinism ?

      Selfish Genes and such ?

      Uh……….. how the fuck does a Gene know it is selfish ??

      How does an Atom know it is doing the right thing ?

      Especially given how ” right ” and ” wrong ” , ” good ” and ” bad ” are SUBJECTIVE , NOT OBJECTIVE ??

      Sure , plenty of species live communally and cooperatively.

      But , then , plenty of species do not live communally and cooperatively.

      Spiders live solitary lives. They kill and eat their own kind.

      Surely the philosophy of spiders is , ” Look out for Number One ! ”

      And spiders have survived a few million years.

      And so on , and so on.

      Remember that killing Anne Frank was a public safety and health measure.

      Though n one can tell you how exactly a 13 year old spoiled , love – sick , full – of – shit 13 year old girl amounts to a mortal threat to millions , or a kind of living virus .

      As far as the virus – part goes —

      Well , if Anne Frank had lived , she would be about 95 or 100 years old now.

      So no one but an extreme and kooky fetishist would want to fuck her anyway. And who the hell would begrudge that license anyway ?

      If , however , someone wanted to fuck her in her famous 13 year old guise ?

      Under the Nazis , that would be a violation of the Nuremberg Race laws. You’re in big fucking trouble !

      And under current American Puritan prudish ( but not Christian ) law that would be a sex crime under statutory rape.

      Either way , God only knows how this virus is gonna get out of the starting gate.

        Culture is full of bizarrely unaccountable things.

        Anne Frank is an example of this.

        Once upon a time there was an traveling exhibit at my State’s history museum of Anne Frank.

        The crowning glory of which was some letter Anne Frank wrote to a girl in America , IN ENGLISH.

        ( Odd thing was , no bullshit , when I saw the letter , Anne Frank’s handwriting was very similar to mine. )

        But it was a loooonng drive to the state capitol !

        I finally arrived at the state musuem five minutes before closing !

        And in the whole experience , I felt like a real pervert.

        So that is an example of what I mean by , “Culture is full of bizarrely unaccountable things. ”

        They shove Anne Frank down your throat.

        BUT , Anne Frank is only licit and legit if you are —

        — A 13 year old girl.

        — A sexually neuter robot.

        That , of course , excludes 90% of the population at any given time.

        So what the flying fuck is the Anne Frank thing about ?

        If , God forbid ( ! ) a horny 14 year old boy , for example , should take an interest in Anne Frank , it would be WORSE than if he took an interest in Bestially porn !

        So what the fuck is that all about ??

        A Diary of Anne Frank —- that 90 % of the population should not licitly read !

      The thing about inflation is that they’ve figured out how to narrowly target it by where they target the cash infusions. That’s why it’s mostly confined to necessities (home prices, healthy food (not junk food, which is cheaper than ever), healthcare, nominally education, etc.) and assets owned mostly by the rich (stocks, bonds, financial instruments of mass destruction, collectibles, yachts, high-end cars, etc.). Then they measure the crap that everyone wants but most assuredly doesn’t need (big screen TVs, smart phones, low end clothing, junk food, cheap cars, etc.) and claim inflation is near zero. All accounting sleight of hand, in short. People’s near religious belief in and complete credulousness of official statistics allows them to get away with it all too easily.

        Try riding a bike!
        I have almost been run over in a bike lane at 5 am with only one other person on the road in a jeep.
        She was screaming obscenities at me for being in her way as she tried to get on the freeway.
        All she had to do was tap her brakes or speed up just slightly instead she got her passenger side window right next to me and assaulted me with a steady stream of profanity and bumped me with her jeep.
        She then slammed on her brakes got over and went on the freeway.
        With me desperately attempting to regain control and not slam into a curb and then going face first into the iceplant or as some call it pickleweed.

        It took me a year before I would ride my bike on a city street.
        The next incident occurred in a bike lane near a target shopping center where someone in a Jetta made a right turn in front of me and just stopped causing me to slam into the rear quarter panel.
        Ruined my rim, bent my forks and handle bars and sent me into the trunk. This time I was so pissed I punched out their back window by way of repeatedly punching their back quarter panel and area that held the window. At which point they too off and it was a good thing I was so angry not sure what I would have done had I managed to get ahold of them. Parts to repair the bike were more than the sum total of a new bike.
        At this point I realized a bike in the big city was serious business.
        I now live one mile from my place of employment and have a new shiny bike but after two years have yet to ride it to work or anywhere that cars and I have to deal with each other.

    A Statement by Newsmax (a source you can trust):

    “Newsmax would like to clarify its coverage of Dr. Coomer and note that while Newsmax initially covered claims by President Trump’s lawyers, supporters and others that Dr. Coomer played a role in manipulating Dominion voting machines, Dominion voting software, and the final vote counts in the 2020 presidential election, Newsmax subsequently found no evidence that such allegations were true.”

    [ … ]

    “There are several facts that our viewers should be aware of. Newsmax has found no evidence that Dr. Coomer interfered with Dominion voting machines or voting software in any way, nor that Dr. Coomer ever claimed to have done so. Nor has Newsmax found any evidence that Dr. Coomer ever participated in any conversation with members of “Antifa,” nor that he was directly involved with any partisan political organization.

    On behalf of Newsmax, we would like to apologize for any harm that our reporting of the allegations against Dr. Coomer may have caused to Dr. Coomer and his family.”

    It seems to me that , in simple terms , that would describe me.

    On the other hand , G.K. Chesterton said that same thing a hundred years ago……

    I’m pretty sure I wasn’t born in 1902.

    ?

    ” He ( POPE BENEDICT XVI ) was and is completely in favor of Vatican Two and the new religion (basically) of the Novus Ordo. ”

    I joined the Church in 2014. ( The eve of the anniversary of WW I.. 🙂 )

    So the only Mass I have ever seen is the Novus Ordo.

    The Church — which looked the other way when the English burned her ass — was good enough for Joan of Arc.

    And it was good enough for Saint Dymphna , whogot her head chopped off by her own horny father when she was 13 ,supposedly.

    Except I’m convinced Joan of Arc was the real deal ,

    and I’m convinced the biography of Saint Dymphna is true.

    So the Church is good enough for me.

    sadly , I have to date never been able to locate it again .

    An army of Germans and French and English , Dutch and Croats , Spaniards and Hungarians and Moors and American Indians !

    The real Western Civilization , not te fucking joke which was the French Republic , or the United States , an Empire built on cheap petroleum and cheap coal which barely managed to clusterfuck is way through a single century .

    ( What luck ! Yellow is my favorite color ! And Yellow was the flag of the HRE ! )

    It’s actually a song about just one emperor , specifically.

    But , since two – thirds of the world DOES NOT speak German , who would know better anyway ? Lol .

    Fun fact ; The motto of the Hapsburgs was A.E.I.O.U —

    “Austriae est imperare orbi universo”

    “All the world is subject to Austria”.

    Sounds ludicrous ?

    No , for a brief time it was true !

    At one point , the Hapsburg’s were both Holy Roman Emperors , AND Kings of Spain / the Spanish Empire.

    For a brief time , ” The sun never set on the Hapsburg Empire ” .

    Of course , Charles V and Phillip II were far lessthan perfect in their service to the Church. 🙁

      Admittedly, Holy Roman Empire has a more noble ring to it than French Republic or United States far and away. But could a Holy Roman Empire rise out of the rubble of the dead French Republic? Looking around there doesn’t seem like much hope for the West. But of late it seems like there is a profound stirring of old nationalist sentiments in France coupled with what appears to be an acknowledgement of the survival instinct and the death bed on which that nation currently lies. But apparently a critical of mass of French even prefer military rule now to save historic France from the Islamic takeover. Wouldn’t that be interesting if France was ground zero for a Western immune response finally. I can’t see that in any of the Anglo countries. Those all appear to be full tilt suicidal.

        Well , the significance of the Emperor of Japan , according to Shinto , is that he is a direct , lineal , descendant of the sun Goddess Amaterasu , the Mother of the Japanese people and Holy Japan.

        That institution is two thousand years old.

        Then you have the Catholic Church.

        If Catholics are to be believed , then that institution likewise is two thousand years old.

        ( And if you don’t believe the Catholics then , err , you have one heck of a problem Christianity – wise. )

        As far as I know , both regimes have ANY other regime beat by an easy thousand years.

        Turning to more recent regimes ?

        The significance of the Monarchy of England ,for example , once upon a time was that they derived their authority from God.

        As for Republicanism , I’m pretty sure that , ” endowed by their creator ….” was somewhere in the first fucking paragraph.

        So ….. if secularists really took evidence as seriously as they claim ,

        I suppose I can confidently predict , without being psychic ,

          Following people around and insulting their well-thought-out comments reveals you as a puerile and boorish bully troll. Aren’t you SJW/Wokies against bullying? Or is it sanctioned as long as your target is a ‘white supremacist’ (e.g., someone who doesn’t share your deranged world view)?

          • Night Owl May 1, 2021 at 1:52 pm #

            Note again how the board was relatively peaceful, with thought-provoking nuanced takes on a variety of issues.

            Until …

            LOL.

            Every week. Just observe the pattern.

          • MaryV May 1, 2021 at 9:35 pm #

            I have, especially since you pointed it out a couple of weeks ago.

            The first 24 hours or so are always pretty great, and then… here comes the stink crew.

            And the pattern is, they wait ’til there are around 300+ comments, then they start with the establishment narrative regurgitation, and target specific people.

          • Night Owl May 2, 2021 at 6:53 am #

            Yes, Mary.

            They all arrive at once after about 24 hrs. Each week.

            Same pattern.

            I wonder why?

          Bad people always pick on SSL. Her humility enrages them. Even Neurodoc, who isn’t all bad, went after her in a truly vicious fashion.

          She isn’t as educated as some here, and that triggers the snobs. But she is a great natural talent, both intellectually and stylistically. She is often able to make fools of them all by herself.

          • SoftStarLight May 1, 2021 at 2:23 pm #

            Thank you! It’s such a pretty bouquet of electron flowers it makes me feel speechless. Though you know I probably will find at least one more thing to say lol 😉

          • Yohannon May 1, 2021 at 2:53 pm #

            All tied up with a string. The more one writes, the better at it one gets. But it’s no more than you deserve.

          • MaryV May 1, 2021 at 9:37 pm #

            I would peg SSL as someone who is highly educated, but on her own accord (not institutionalized learning). I prefer that. I was, too, until I officially recently finished my degree, for professional reasons, although now I wish I hadn’t bothered, perhaps.

            You say they pick on her because of her humility, and I would agree that the bully-types see that as a weakness rather than a strength, which is a mistake.

      At some point Francis will invalidate the Consecration in one way or another (perhaps the wording) and you will have to go into the Catacombs to even get your Novus Ordo level of Catholicism – or the real Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.

    Tearing down Confederate monuments ?

    Is after the fact.

    For one hundred years Colonel George Armstrong Custer and his 7th Cavalry was an American Martyr.

    After all , they got their heads blown off for the old Red Whit and Blue , didn’t they ?

    ” Man have no greater love than this ; That he lay down his life for loved ones , friends , and neighbors ” ?

    https://iartprints.com/prints/edgar_samuel_paxson_custer%27s_last_stand-27546.html

    But then , because he happened to share a conceit that was ubiquitously popular in his time ,

    and because he happened to lose. ( As if cavalry getting their asses kicked is a rare occurrence or something . *sarcasm * )

    They re – named Custer National battlefield !

    To exclude and shame his now stigmatized ass !

    Need I mention that this guy fought ON THE SIDE OF the Republicans and Abolitionists 1861 – 1865 ?

    So who , in their right mind , would get their head blown off for your sake now , given Custer’s example ?

    You have a track record of pissing on those who get their heads blown off for your sake.

    Of course I despise your United States .

    Everything it stands for — like pissing on Custer — is a disgusting obfuscation or otherwise shameless lie.

    • KesaAnna May 1, 2021 at 3:55 am #

      The stigmatization of Custer ;

      That’s one reason this black girl flies the Confederate Flag.

      I utterly despise and want nothing to do with your damned union.

      Stigmatizing Custer is what you do to people who do give you the benefit .

      • Disaffected May 1, 2021 at 8:04 am #

        You’re in top form again this morning. Always a provocative read. Well done!

      • PeteAtomic May 1, 2021 at 10:25 am #

        I recommend the book, “A Terrible Glory: Custer and the Little Bighorn”

        by Donovan

        best account of Custer’s life leading up and to the battle.

        • O.G. Hawkins May 1, 2021 at 12:56 pm #

          I was fortunate enough to visit Little Bighorn in 2016. They have an informative museum that sticks to the facts of the battle and does not, that I saw, choose sides.

          It is very sobering standing there at Last Stand Hill and imaging the goings-on on that land that day as the markers designate where each man was left dead or for dead.

          And, those men were not so lucky as to have their heads blown off that day. Instead, they lie there bleeding to death in torturous agony amongst the cries of anguish of their compatriots. Slaughtered on a hill.

            The continent of Atlantis was an island
            Which lay before the great flood
            In the area we now call the Atlantic Ocean
            So great an area of land, that from her western shores
            Those beautiful sailors journeyed
            To the South and the North Americas with ease
            In their ships with painted sails
            To the east, Africa was a neighbor
            Across a short strait of sea miles
            The great Egyptian age is but a remnant of The Atlantian culture
            The antediluvian kings colonized the world
            All the gods who play in the mythological dramas
            In all legends from all lands were from fair Atlantis
            Knowing her fate, Atlantis sent out ships to all corners of the Earth
            On board were the Twelve
            The poet, the physician, the farmer, the scientist
            The magician and the other so-called gods of our legends
            Though gods they were
            And as the elders of our time choose to remain blind
            Let us rejoice and let us sing and dance and ring in the new
            Hail Atlantis!

    It actually feels like a massive invasion of holograms and nanites is underway. Or rather, has been underway for sometime but is reaching a critical mass. The entire goal appears to be to flood the zone in such entirety and totality as to bring the intricately and precariously put together tower of civilization down in a catastrophic crash. Almost as if their whole business of “cvilization building” is actually a superscaled and immeasurably cruel game of jenga How else to explain the most recent psychopathic flirtations with open mass nuclear genocide and ecocide? How else to explain the use of a pandemic to empower possibly the most vicious tyrants to have ever usurped power in human history, annhiliate whole swaths of national economies, and introduce global scale genetic and nano engineering and wanton experimentation under the guise of “vaccines”? How else to explain the breathtaking and callous bulldozing and demolition of all manner of political, cultural, social, and religious norms represented by such divers injustices as Joe Biden’s “victory”, among countless examples? So yes, it seems like we are definitely drifting into a storm of the century. centuries? biggest ever? I believe in freedom of thought. And yet the biggest moral imperative of our time apparently is the willing subjugation of the self to the the whims of billionaire super predators whose humanity (fine, regard for humanity) is truly open to question. I hope many more will see and hear so that we could steer clear. But I tend to think we are certainly not headed into the doldrums.

    • KesaAnna May 1, 2021 at 5:20 am #

      Well , if we had signatures on this forum , then my signature would be , ” Remember the Maine ! ”

      The point being , if these if these people are the Keystone Cops , or the Prince of Darkness himself , either way their time will be but a season.

      The Third Reich was but a hectic 12 years.

      The whole mighty Soviet Empire was but 70 years.

      Winston Churchill’s idea fixe , no less in 1952 than in 1902 , was to preserve the British Empire.

      Today the British Empire is never the less a historical footnote,

      and self – serving , dead – horse – beating Western propaganda aside , who gives a flying fuck about Winston Churchill except history buffs ?

      As invincible as these crack – pot assholes seem at the moment , the clear track record is that they rule for but a brief season , and no more.

      Seriously now , do you suppose Joe Biden is even a pale shadow of Caligula ? lol.

      • KesaAnna May 1, 2021 at 5:25 am #

        Not that Caligula was even that that special.

        • MaryV May 1, 2021 at 10:58 am #

          True! He was a very damaged person, who grew up to be a deranged psychopath just as Tiberius raised him to be. Not a lot of difference between him and any other royal.

          • BackRowHeckler May 1, 2021 at 1:22 pm #

            Henry Vlll especially. The more I read about Henty VIII, the less I like him.

          • MaryV May 1, 2021 at 3:28 pm #

            Henry VIII killed his wives out of lust for other women so yeah, that’s pretty hard-core psychopathic.

          • GreenAlba May 2, 2021 at 6:25 am #

            He could have satisfied his lust for other women without marrying them, as other kings have done through the ages.

            His psychopathy is a given. But he desperately wanted a son., which you can’t get, in a legitimate sense, just by shagging half the court.

            Deathbed Catholic too, apparently, after his psychopathy re the monasteries. No different from ISIS in Palmyra really, but more widespread.

        • Night Owl May 1, 2021 at 1:49 pm #

          But Caligula was sentient.

          Joe Joe was installed because he is a houseplant.

          • MaryV May 1, 2021 at 3:29 pm #

            True.

            Caligula was just the next in line.

            I’m not sure how cognizant he was, given his massive disorders / insanity, but he wasn’t any drooling old potato, that’s for sure.

        • SoftStarLight May 1, 2021 at 2:42 pm #

          Lol good one! Right! Give me a break. But perhaps Hunter could try out for the special!? In his instance the historical record lends itself to the idea that at least he wishes to be Caligula ish.

          • MaryV May 1, 2021 at 9:40 pm #

            Oh VERY Caligula-ish.

        On the contrary my dear Majella.

        KesaAnnas posts are priceless.

          • Redneck Liberal May 1, 2021 at 7:42 pm #

            I find Kesa’s post way more sensible and level-headed than your “product”, MaryV. Your third-person trolling is amusing though, as it’s usually way off base with regard to accuracy or insight.

      Extremely well said, SSL.

      I see similar. And I agree that they are going to pull out ALL the stops soon. They have actually begun. The ads saturate all of social media. You can’t search for anything any more, because the search engines have been reprogrammed to deliver the propaganda. People are primed now with fear and a year of touchless torture. If they start their hologram/alien invasion bullshit that is really going to destroy what’s left of many peoples’ brains. I am convinced they are making zombies out of a large portion of the population, between the culting and the vaxxes. Look how they act. Their ability to think is gone. They depend on mommy and daddy government, and their gov’t wants to squash them like gnats. This isn’t going to end well.

        Last night Tucker revealed that a huge release of UFO documents is scheduled for June. His guest and Tucker both agreed that this was a crisis and that National Security has been letting us down for decades.

        Knowingly or unknowingly (I hope the latter), he helped set the Table for Them.
