Finally, you’re left with image of Scott Pelley sucking on his eyeglass frames as if he was trying to impersonate a character who might be called The Ole Sage TV Journalist, after neatly disgracing both himself and TV journalism in his puffy chat-up with Andrew McCabe, the ex-Deputy FBI Director who stage-managed the cover-up of the RussiaGate fiasco in both of its phases — first to interfere with the 2016 election on behalf of Hillary Clinton, and then to oust the winner of the election, Mr. Trump.

Perhaps Mr. Pelley was ruminating on all the topics he forgot to ask about, such as what Mr. McCabe meant by an “insurance policy” in his conversations with counter-intel agent Peter Stzrok and DOJ lawyer Lisa Page; or whether Mr. McCabe launched the Russia collusion investigation on the basis of the Steele dossier, which was already known at the time to be material furnished by the Hillary Clinton campaign; or whether the contents of said dossier had ever been verified via established FBI protocol (the “Woods” procedure), which they never were.

The audience was informed at the very end that Mr. McCabe’s case had been “referred” to the federal courts by the DOJ Inspector General. That was a nice way of saying that Mr. McCabe has been singing to a grand jury. If so, then he’s an early bird, because many of his feathered friends will be following him into the grand jury chamber and then we’ll have the great Battle-of-the-Alibis.

Mainly what the McCabe interview accomplished was CBS tripling-down on the empty Russia collusion “narrative” that has nourished the crusade to dump Mr. Trump by any means necessary for more than two years. Mr. McCabe describes the “chaos” in the C-suites of the FBI after the President fired Director James Comey in May 7 of 2017, “because we had lost our leader… it was an unbelievably stressful time,” he said.

Yes, I’m sure. Because so many top officers in the Bureau were desperate to cover their asses since Mrs. Clinton’s unbelievable election loss meant that all the FBI emails and official memoranda documenting their behavior either had to be shoved down the memory hole illegally or left to be discovered by Mr. Trump. Indeed, some of it was illegally destroyed, for instance the government-issued cell phones of Ms. Page and Mr. Stzrok, smashed to bits on Robert Mueller’s instructions.

Apparently, one of the main objectives in the 60-Minutes story was to paint Mr. McCabe as an heroic patriot defending America against the wicked, shape-shifting, all-powerful Russia, which had made Mr. Trump its captive. The 60-Minutes piece happens to coincide exactly with the release of Mr. McCabe’s ass-covering book: The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump. (Real superheroes fight both.)

It also sets up a nice contrapuntal battle between the enigmatic Rod Rosenstein and Mr. McCabe vis-à-vis the idea of “wearing a wire” to record the President en route to running him over with the 25th Amendment. According to Mr. McCabe, there was a lot of lively discussion around this plan. Mr. Rosenstein has brushed it off as a gag. Mr. McCabe, apparently, thought it was dead serious. They never did get their stories straight. In the meantime, Mr. McCabe’s own colleagues in the FBI’s ethics office and its Inspector General charged him with lying repeatedly about his role in this matter.

You had to wonder whether the attempt by CBS-News to sell “the sterling career” story of Andrew McCabe (as Mr. Pelley put it), is really just a way for the network to cover its own ass in acting as a propaganda patsy in the long-running RussiaGate affair. The 60-Minutes segment also coincided with William Barr’s confirmation last week by the senate as the Attorney General, as well as official reports issued by both house and senate committees stating that they found no evidence for the Trump / Russia collusion story. The ground is shifting under all this seditious hugger-mugger.

Whether you are a Trump cheerleader or not (I’m not), there is a reality-based chain of events behind the FBI’s actions from early 2016 on — and the actions of other official players in government — that can only be clarified now in the courts, and chances are pretty good that they will be. It concerns me because the specter of massive institutional failure in federal law enforcement and the news media bodes very darkly for this country’s future.

    Is McCabe delusional enough to believe that by confessing on a show like 60 minutes that he & other DOJ bureaucrats were seriously considering a coup, he will be excused of this behavior?

    It’s unbelievable.

      It concerns me because the specter of massive institutional failure in federal law enforcement and the news media bodes very darkly for this country’s future.

      So you are not one of the last holdouts who thinks the Orange Gibbon will ‘wake the country up’ and lead to massive swamp drainings! I’ll agree, the trend seems to be for dumb and dumber.

      People don’t think big enough. Why waste billions of dollars on a wall that could be spent on something useful. A jet can fly over al wall to land au pairs for NY city matrons before ink authorizing new visas is even dry.

      Mars bitches, that is thinking big.

      Crank up the drama. Rather a steel tower than a steel wall. A tower all the way to Mars. Then we can talk about illegal aliens. Aliens that will be a lot more dangerous than any army of leaf-blowers driving uninsured Dodge Ram pick-up trucks. Then we can be properly amused.

      As long as these not so very deep state investigations never conclude they are like ships that never reach a port to unload cargo. Be the load in their hold dubious or not. Eventually the investigations don’t matter because Trump will be gone or king.

      Silly K-Dog, Trump as king. That is not even legal and only a few women with daddy issues would even want that, but think a minute. Roll back the clock. Trump as POTUS. Lol, it will never happen!

    • Paulo February 19, 2019 at 10:27 am #

      I call BS on this tin foil hat article and those comments about a Deep State coup. This morning it was revealed the entire Gang of 8 was briefed BEFORE the investigation. McCabe followed protocal. Wait for the Mueller report to be made public and a few more endictments to tell the compete story.

      Is Trump a compromised leader? Absolutely. Is he an ignorant leader? Absoutely. He is an embarrasment.

  2. Neon Vincent February 18, 2019 at 9:59 am #

    I don’t know if Pelley’s interview with McCabe had him pitching any more softballs than his interview with Howard Schultz. The late night talk show hosts and their guests took aim at Schultz, not Pelley. I’m sure that more brickbats will be aimed at McCabe than Pelley, yours notwithstanding.

    • DrTomSchmidt February 18, 2019 at 10:22 am #

      Yeah, it’s nice that JHK is trying to hold not the criminals in government to account, but their aiders and abettors in the media.

      It’s like Rigoletto: the Duke is a scoundrel, but that’s expected, and he gets away with his crimes as his jester mocks the men the Duke despoils. At the end, the person who suffers most is
      Rigoletto for his utter lack of empathy with the victims of the State’s predation.

    The immediate future of the country is “very darkly”, but not so much for reasons of government corruption. That’s a given in every polity. The reasons are far more systemic in all social institutions, not least of which is the financial one. If you can keep your economy on solid financial principles, there is a fair chance that the government and other social institutions will work well enough to maintain stability. We are not in that situation today.

    Sedition
    sedition n
    [Latin seditio, literally, separation, from sed apart + itio act of going, from ire to go]
    : the crime of creating a revolt, disturbance, or violence against lawful civil authority with the intent to cause its overthrow or destruction

    Isn’t this an appropriate description of McCabe’s actions?

    • seawolf77 February 18, 2019 at 10:16 am #

      No that’s what Jesus Christ did.

    • DrTomSchmidt February 18, 2019 at 10:17 am #

      Revolt/disturbance/violence all implies some army. You could consider the court and police officers who might enforce a 25th amendment order as revolting troops, but they would think they are following lawful orders.

      Thanks for taking the time to actually define the crime. It might not be sedition if they didn’t have armed troops.

      • PeteAtomic February 18, 2019 at 10:23 am #

        “Section 4. Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

        Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.[5]”
        en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twenty-fifth_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution

        There is zero constitutional authority for the DOJ to arrest the President under the 25th Amendment. This includes FBI assault teams (like the one which arrested Roger Stone).

        • PeteAtomic February 18, 2019 at 10:34 am #

          correction here: the DOJ would have to be deputized by the Congress– “Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide..”

          The DOJ can not take the initiative to force the President from authority by itself. It would need the authority by Congress.

        • JohnAZ February 18, 2019 at 10:38 am #

          The end statement is that this is a political removal and requires a two thirds majority in both houses to execute the removal. Fat chance.

          The McCabe move is a pipe dream to limit the effectiveness of Trump. Just like Mueller.

          If two thirds of the House and Senate were to vote against Trump, it would be Fait Accompli for the Deep State and the days of uniparty would begin.

          • PeteAtomic February 18, 2019 at 10:51 am #

            yep you are correct.

            McCabe & his colleagues moving without the will of Congress, is a coup. Plain and simple.
            I agree with the rest of your post there.

        • goldpen February 18, 2019 at 10:52 am #

          …and it has been argued over the decades that the FBI itself is an unconstitutional agency. Certainly an extra-constitutional agency. It should be smashed to pieces and scattered to the four winds IMO.

          But Bill Maher says the FBI is “our guys” and can be totally trusted, and that it is traitorous to suggest otherwise. I guess I’ll defer to the Playboy Mansion/CIA official comedian.

          • wolfbay February 20, 2019 at 6:51 am #

            The FBI is exemplified by J Edger Hoover. Collect dirt on politicians and others illegally to maintain power. With the technology they have today it is truly frightening.

    • JohnAZ February 18, 2019 at 10:19 am #

      Not just McCabe, the entire Deep State. Why?

      Smile. The Deep State needs things just as they are now, open border, control of the Judiciary, cotrol over the legislative function , to Stop the Populists from halting the illicit trade across the southern border.

      Why?

      Because the money exchanging there is keeping the international financial structure from going bankrupt, along with the neo liberals and conservatives that support it. Trump shuts the border and he controls them. Add onto that that a lot of the backlash on the border is coming from Deep State users of drugs.

      It is indeed a time of revolution. If Trump succeeds with the border shutdown, what will these internationalists do to him?

      Ask the ghost of JFK!

      • Walter B February 18, 2019 at 11:42 am #

        My friends, family, and many who I work and associate with are mostly in law enforcement. There is not a single one that will not tell you that without the profits from illegal drug trade and the loot from seizure, the country, if not the world would have collapsed long ago. Heck, it’s not even a secret and certainly not a conspiracy theory, it is right out there in your face:

        miaminewtimes.com/news/is-miamis-latest-real-estate-boom-fueled-by-criminals-and-money-laundering-65…

        It is all a big game, a sham and the worst part of it all is that it has corrupted everything around it and made those who are supposed to manage our finances stupid and greedy and in it only for their own profit. It cannot end well.

          So when the border patrol confiscates a huge shipment of drugs, what do they do with it?

          • Walter B February 18, 2019 at 1:03 pm #

            Being from New Jersey I do not know any BP officers, but this article claims that they give them to “contractors” for disposal:

            cbsnews.com/news/how-are-authorities-destroying-seized-drugs/

            In the regular PD’s, the drugs go to “evidence” warehouses which never seem to get so full that they need to build more so one can only wonder. They claim that much is “incinerated” and being that everyone in the business is so “squeaky clean” honorable and trustworthy, I am sure there is no monkey business (wink, wink). The cash gets cycled into the system in many ways. My next door neighbor years ago was an assistant county prosecutor who used to get to take his family on “law enforcement meetings/seminars” a couple of times a year. They were held in places like Vale, CO during ski seasons and Miami and all sorts of vacation spots. He would have a few hour long meetings/talks in the am and then be free for the day and all expenses were paid. Tough work but someone has to do it, right?

            And that is only the small percentage that gets seized. Use your imagination. They do.

            Well gee, that sucks….

            If all that is true, then those rumors about US troops guarding the poppy fields in Afghanistan don’t seem very far fetched at all. Rather they follow logically from the ethos of the System.

          • Walter B February 18, 2019 at 3:05 pm #

            Our troops DO guard the fields, I personally know soldiers that have done so. It may never be known if any of the product goes for illegal drugs or not, but much becomes the property of Big Pharma. What their deal with the government is I have no idea, but it does not take much imagination to figure it out.

            Usually it goes into drug storage and a sample is sent to lab to be looked at for markers as to where, who, how it was produced and purity.
            It is held in storage until it is no longer needed for the case being made and then taken to an incinerator and burned.
            No it is not held forever nor is it repurposed for sale elsewhere.

But if they or it every thinks things are getting too far out of control they or it will employ in-your-face totalitarianism for survival. But they prefer to have the majority comfortable, distracted, and asleep.

            To the right of the letter m is the comma key. On that same key is a leftward pointing symbol (a bracket) that is also a math symbol meaning “less than.” On the next key to the right is the period and above the period on the same key is a rightward pointing bracket which in math means “greater than.”

            Soooo, to italicize a word or series of words you type the less than symbol, the letter i, and then the greater than symbol. Use no spaces. Follow these 3 key strokes with the word (or words) you want to italicize such as the word them that you wanted to italicize for emphasis up above. After the word them, with no space, type the less than symbol, then forward slash (it’s below the question mark), then the letter i and finally the greater than symbol.

            To bold a word or words do exactly as above only replacing the i letters with b letters.

          “The Deep State,” the latest novel from Stephen King, tells the story of the Longworms, a family of earthworms who make a wrong turn and end up falling off a huge cliff in middle earth. Thankfully at the bottom of the gorge there are Posturepedic mattresses which cushion the fall and allow them to survive. Little do they know they have landed in the Deep State, a terrifying land where worms are ruled by shadowy spiders whose webs are subterranean. Can the Longworms figure out a way to survive, or will they to become bait for the spider’s Deep State’s rulers, who live and fish in Chatanooga TN and are AHGGGG!!!! HUMANS.

    A huge hole in the balance of powers structure is the elevation of the intel community to a ult power position. There is no effective check on them to keep them from becoming weaponized politically.

    The Left in this country have been in power for thirty years. Like hires like, so surprise the FBI is Leftist.

    The oversight function in the Congress is supposed to be the check on the DOJ, but saturation by the Deep State has effectively removed that function.

    there is a reality-based chain of events behind the FBI’s actions from early 2016 on — and the actions of other official players in government — that can only be clarified now in the courts, and chances are pretty good that they will be

    I wonder what life was like in the 60s before America lost its collective mind. Was law enforcement really like Andy Griffith? Were courts actually interested in justice, rather than winning, with Hamilton Berger regularly getting turned into hamburger by Perry Mason because Mason’s client was innocent, with Berger going along with it?

        The Clinton Age was the beginning of the Deep State and thus the globalist attempted takeover of the country.

        Face it, the Trump victory over Clinton was a slap in the face against the Deep State by the American flyover folks.

        The Deep State reacted by declaring globalist war against Trump.

        And the 2018 midterms show that they are still in control

        Sidebar. It will be interesting to see what the Deep State doesvabout the three remaining thorns in their side, the Supreme Court, the Senate and the Electoral College.

        Moves against any or all of the three could be the onset of Civil War II.

          Trump victory over Clinton was a revolt of American people against the Black Project, even without realizing that, purely on gut instinct.

        • DrTomSchmidt February 18, 2019 at 1:27 pm #

          I’m not too sure about the midterms. There was probably ballot box stuffing out in CA, but the country trusted the Republicans with control of Congress and the Presidency for exactly 4 years under W, and exactly two under Trump.

          That control spawned the Iraq war in 2003, a $4trillion bonfire. Also, let’s not forget No Child Left Behind, and Medicare Part D. W barely snuck over the finish line in 2004 by winning Ohio. The 12-year Republican control of the House was ended in 2006 thanks to some of those disastrous choices.

          The Dems have had full control of the Presidency and Congress for 4 of the last 39 years. Under Clinton, that got us a massive tax increase, destroying the 1986 tax act (but restoring none of the eliminated deductions). Under Obama, we got the “Affordable” care act. Both democratic presidents were soon denied the benefit of a compliant congress; luckily for them, all their Supreme Court opportunities were put through before the population wised up to them.

          All Trump delivered with full government control was the ridiculous 2017 tax cut, which specifically targeted the Blue States, leaving exactly ONE representative from NJ in the R column as a result. I don’t recall Trump’s voters clamoring for a tax cut.

          The thing that got a lot of Democrats elected was health care, not attacking Trump. Ending the scam system we all work and live under has been job 1 for a long time. W increased the burden with Part D. Trump delivered nothing on reducing the burden of healthcare on the middle class.

      a.) Politicians, and some cops were corrupt, but mostly accountable.
      b.) Tax, on taxable income, was high, but almost everything was deductable compared to current scenarios.
      c.) Dope was only sold in inner city areas, manufactured & imported by organized entreprenuers. See item (a) above for explanation of continuity.
      d.) Child molesters, rapists and other particularly egregious miscreants were often “disappeared” by the arresting officers; no paperwork or drain on the system required. Justice administered by tough-as-nails Irish guys who were not even from the same universe as Andy and Barney.
      e.) Corporations paid most of the tax revenue.
      f.) A guy could quit school at sixteen, go to the local factory, and make the modern equivalent of almost thirty bucks an hour at a unionized job that ended with a company paid pension that was in addition to SSA retirement benefits.
      g.) Voter participation was high, and if your guy lost, you tried again in four years.
      h.) Everybody knew that Communisim was for intellectual nut-jobs, and only looked good on paper.
      i.) College cost about five thousand bucks a year, but who needed it ? See item (f) above.
      And that ain’t all !

    This will all make an amazingly good treatise to curl up in an easy chair by the fire with someday, but for now, I can barely make any sense of it, even with Mr K’s amazingly detailed bi-weekly play by plays here to assist. Something tells me, however, that after the dust settles on this nothing of significance will have changed. Trump may or may not remain in the big chair, but the forces of globalist darkness that run this country will still be as recklessly in charge as ever and most of the citizenry who should have at least learned something from all this will remain as blissfully unaware as always.

    I keep coming back to the fact that if Trump had simply followed through on his election promises and 1.) investigated and jailed HRC and/or Obama and their entire entourage immediately after the 2016 election was over, and 2.) immediately directed the DoD to fund and build his wall in the same time period, that all the current hysterics would be moot.

    The famed “first 100 days” are always critical to the success of any administration, yet here again, we see a self-styled “leader with great vision,” fail to take the most rudimentary steps that might have allowed him to realize that vision during the critical time frame when his power to do so was at its peak. Why is that? Did we learn nothing from Obama, who made similar grand gestures in a time of even greater opportunity, before delivering nothing at all, other than even more of the same for the same old beneficiaries?

    If I didn’t know better (and I do), I’d think we’re all being played.

    • JohnAZ February 18, 2019 at 10:50 am #

      Trump made a huge error. He listened to too many Deep Staters for his initial appointments thinking he could make a deal with DC. Carter made the same mistake. His biggest flop was Jeff Sessions, who recused himself because he was right in the middle of the goings on. The whole intelligence fiasco resulted because of this bad decision.

      The border, yes the border is the central issue of the Trump administration. As I said above, the borders illicit activities are keeping the globalist financial structure in business. Shut it down hard and their source of liquidity needed to keep those interest payments coming disappears

      Think the Deep State will stand for that? Hope the Secret Service has their weapons loaded if the wall is built.

      • goldpen February 18, 2019 at 11:24 am #

        I just listened to this interview of Robert David Steele yesterday and he brought up the subject of Trump’s mistakes at the very beginning. Steele says that Chris Christie was actually giving Trump very wise counsel in setting up his administration but Jared Kushner hated Christie, for obvious reasons, and convinced his Daddy-in-law to jettison him. Then of course Reince Priebus and Co. take over for a while.

        Now, I go back and forth as to the credibility of Robert David Steele. But his interviews are always interesting. Here’s the one I heard and watched yesterday….

            Actually that was the official reason for letting Christie go, and for all I know it might be the actual reason. But the Kushner family does hate Christie because back when he was a Prosecutor he went after the father of Jared. Got a conviction too I think.

      The game was never to advance the group but you are not pretending to be surprised. Capitalism is about profit for owners and investors. Nothing else.

    The scariest part of this story is Trump trusting Vladimir Putin and his own uninformed instincts over the information and insights provided by career professionals at our various federal intelligence agencies. Maybe that’s because Vladimir communicates in sound bites, while our intelligence agencies write those pesky briefing papers that take minutes to read and informed questioning to understand.

    I fully expect you to turn against our justice system as well, James, as soon as the courts begin to validate the various charges levied by the intelligence community and Mueller’s team against the Trump Crime Syndicate.

          If I remember correctly, it was “W”, and his administration that sent us into Iraq based on outright lies, with the full cooperation of Congress, resulting in the longest, most expensive war to date, as well as much of the current turmoil over there currently. With the world on a collision course with reality (climate change), the conditions that prevail over there may well be exported to the rest of the world over time. I don’t like being forced into becoming a doom & gloomer, but given the circumstances, I think any other outlook is just wishful thinking.

            It’s true, Scratch, Bush was seated on Cheney’s lap the whole time. One must give credit where it is due. Evil Cheney’s hand was stirring the pot all the time. The only miracle was that it didn’t destroy that time. Given the way that the office of the presidency has fallen lately, it seems that 2008, along with the attendant problems, was only the first, not final, blow. I sincerely think that Trump has mental issues, and having first allowed a fool to run things, followed by a con man, and now Trump, we are inevitably going to be brought low. A barrage like this can’t be sustained.

  11. fugeguy February 18, 2019 at 10:44 am #

    First let me say again that I really do not like Trump. Most of all because I have seen this style in business for over 30 years:

    1) bombastic arrogance as a substitute for even minimal competence
    2) play the blame game without end and never admit to any mistakes
    3) fire subordinates for either failing when following your direction (see 2) or when said direction is so confusing, doing nothing due to being unsure what to do
    4) continuously over promising to get what you want first and then reneging ton your end of the deal once you have what you want
    5) saying anything, open lying and complete obfuscation of the facts to again get what you want
    6) self promotion/ deification over all other things including organizational objectives, colleagues and even common decency

    That being said:

    1) he is the duly elected president and sedition is not acceptable
    2) said present should never have to jump through so many hoops to get an agenda item that is less than 1/10th of one percent of the federal budget
    3) some of the ideas are good just not fitting the bureau of central control’s desire to spread like a cancer (news flash folks reality and said cancer are killing the host)
    4) he is an effective if flawed agent for change which we desperately need , even if, we are unsure what we’ll get- at this point we need to stop or at least slow the train

    So I guess despite all my misgivings about the man, the other side is so flawed, corrupt and bad for what is left of the republic/ humanity, he is the lessor of so many evils.

    But in the end we are most likely way past the point of no return as a nation, species and civilization we might as well take the blue pill and enjoy the faux prosperity until the end. Only then after exhausting all other options can we pick up pieces and consider another way.

    I wish it weren’t so and we could start in another direction rationally with some endowment in-tact but alas that’s not how we do things.

    • JohnAZ February 18, 2019 at 11:02 am #

      You do not like Trump because he was shaped to be a successful wheeler dealer in New York City, the most corrupt business environment in America. He became so adept at handing opposition that he wiped out thirty years of political BS in one election. My only argument with him is that he did not wipe out the Deep State lackeys at the executive top levels. We are still having repercussions from that bad decision.

Once he was elected and strengthened the PA and sent more troops to Afghanistan, I asked those who supported him what they thought about his lying. “They all lie” was the universal reply, and people accept it.

            True. But Trump is in a class of his own. Just substitute moat for wall. Just substitute Atlantis for Mexico. We’re not talking about policy issues that may have strategic underpinnings we know nothing about. We’re talking about demagogic pie in the sky fantasies. Crap. Pure, stinky, runny crap that sad to say half my country ate it up like it was blue light special at the greasy spoon. Never in my wildest fantasies did I think my country would preemptively start wars on the most blatantly trumped up charges (WMD), would torture people for the flimsiest of reasons (more WMD), and would build walls not bridges between countries.

It is amazing how fast the destruction of our morals, ethics and civility has occurred. We hate each other at 1860 levels, but in 2019 there is no state or area or section of the country in which to hide. Those “other guys” are all around us. Hell, their even in our own families. All we need is the right spark to blow the powder keg of shitstorm to come.

      There will be no “day of reckoning” for Hillary or the Democrats. When you send investigations of this high level to Inspector Generals rather than appoint another Special Prosecutor, the problem gets buried.

    “…that can only be clarified now in the courts, and chances are pretty good that they will be. It concerns me because the specter of massive institutional failure in federal law enforcement and the news media bodes very darkly for this country’s future.”

    The future is dark indeed, but the Feral goobermint’s history of selective prosecution gives me little (nil) hope that the tide will turn and clarification achieved.

    Laws are for us little people.

    BTW, on the subject of laws for us little people, can anyone confirm the authenticity of this quote attributed to one (ea.) Mr. A. Hitler: “It is convenient to have a set of laws where everyone is a criminal.”

    Yeah.

    Take drug laws. Why is it that something as popular as marijuana and other drugs are still totally banned by the Feds? Why is it that most inmates are related to drugs?

    The inmates are victims of a globalist drug cartel that wants the price of drugs to remain as high as possible. The guys writing the laws are part of the globalist organization ie the Deep State.

    The conpiracy theorists are going to come out of all of this smelling like a rose.

      The government can’t replace all that lost revenue from cigarette sales with marijuana, when it’s something people can grow cheaply in their own yards or even on the porch (is that why it’s called “pot”?).

      Hence, medical marijuana, which isn’t really medical grade or anything, and shouldn’t it be called medicinal?
      Marijuana is marijuana.
      I know the edible form does work for people who have lost their appetite , due to throat cancer or perhaps other illnesses; but that’s still plain old street marijuana.
      Other uses, I really haven’t seen any evidence that it works better than other medicines.
      But if we go through the pretense of licensed dispensaries, the state gets a cut.

      AOC’s Green Agenda will be a litmus test for all of the Democratic candidates and by supporting it, they’ll come off as radicals that are on side with destroying an economy that no one has the imagination to change. Solyndra will be brought out as proof that the green revolution is a failure.

        And all of that is true. They neither know or care about what is good for human beings, only what hurts White people and Western Culture. And yes, the need for radical change is thus completely obfuscated and the Elite win again.

        The People will always fail. Only the High can battle against the High. Only the Cunning against the Cunning. Ruthless against the Ruthless. We need a new Elite which will prove themselves to be so in the Battle. Only the Fascist and National Socialist can match these devils stroke for stroke – because they have the Ideological clarity that enables them to do so. How did they acquire it? By gazing into the abyss (often present in the eyes of Leftists), and by repudiating the same in themselves. Thus they turn their eyes to Heaven and receive its Mandate to go forward conquering and to Conquer.

    Thank you for watching that stupid show Jim, so that I did not have to. I stopped being able to stomach 60 Minutes over a decade ago when it turned to crap. Not surprised to hear that it still is. I have a long time retired investment banker friend who just spent Saturday afternoon lunching with a close buddy of his, an FBI department director. As in all friendships with government insiders, discussions never include business, but what was and has been told my friend repeatedly over the last few years is that the agency may be run by political hacks and butt kissers, but the rank and file can’t stand any of them and cannot wait for a true purge. I always tell my friend to remind him that “when you lay down with pigs, you get up smelling like garbage” (thank you Tony Bennett), but I know that he never does.

    Meanwhile back at the farm. Mr. Jones got his final notice from the bank foreclosing on his property which had been in his family for 3 generations.

    The 22 TRILLION dollar debt grew larger such that the Treasury’s supercomputer could not keep up. It blew a fuse and must be replaced with a Chinese rig which has embedded software to trip up future calculations. Ms. Cortez says it is only numbers and we can fudge those like we’ve been doing for decades.

    Oil continued to be sucked from the ground and the party goes on for another few years. We are awash in oil and bullshit.

    Mr. Musk continues to proclaim that we will colonize Mars which sends tingles down many lefty legs. Evidently many lefties have no clue about space and science stuff.

    The public got treated to another false report of racial violence. Be assured this will go away quietly like everything else the left does. However, white guys, do not look at a minority directly in the eyes.

    Jose from Honduras managed to get inside the country. He has the incurable, untreatable form of TB. Let’s hope he makes it to a leftist sanctuary city.

    Stacey Abrams still figures she won the election in GA. Which Romney was the perennial candidate? Georgia should be wary of its future in several years though.

    Trump hasn’t accomplished anything because he is a terrible leader who believes he is an amazing leader, and the resulting gulf in perception and reality is called funny, and will continue to grow into hilarity, finally culminating in the entire country laughing its ass off while rolling on the floor, clapping their hands together and crying tears of pure joy, while Trumptards watch in stunned incredulity. In the meantime, Christie will spout “If he has just listened to me,” Coulter will yammer “Our president is an idiot,” Hannity will claim “People don’t know the Trump I know,” and Limbaugh will add “Beware the Ides of March.”

      And he will never accomplish anything nor shall any of those who follow him. The system is shot, it is so totally corrupt and worthless that it matters not what head you put on it, it is still a rotted, decaying carcass. Even at the small local levels all I ever hear is “there is nothing we can do about that”. The only thing that the Giant Shit Machine can do anymore is profit from the labors of those who still do the work and I am afraid that the ranks of those who still do the work are thinning out and eventually going away. Then perhaps there will at least be change, though we might not like the new system.

      On the contrary, he is an obnoxious man, but he is a leader. Unlike the previous idiots in the WH he tells the Pentagon “leaders” how the bread is buttered. If he can extract troops from the various shit holes, he will be a very effective leader. Obama was an ass kisser. He kissed ass around the world, Hollywood, and some asses we don’t know about I imagine. The sad thing is, successors will keep us buried in endless wars. Trump has been refreshing in a large sense.

      BTW, who do you see as a “good” leader? Surely you do not think Ms. Clinton is a leader. She hasn’t led anything. We cannot know her in that sense.

    Scott Pelley already made an ass of himself when he made CBS’ coverage of the inauguration all about teh Russians.
    H simply would not shut up.
    He was worse than the infotainers who cover events such as the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
    I can remember when they used to comment on the floats and the bands, you know, the actual parade, but now they just talk talk talk as if they were the show.
    Why are the reporters even on camera at televised events?

    Speaking of sucking on eyeglasses, I remember how offended Bob Dylan was when he was asked to do so by a reporter. That makes me think of how offended some viewers of 60 Minutes were by their heavily publicized Bob Dylan interview, because it was a very thinly disguised commercial for a product of the parent company.
    Bob did not seem at all happy with that, he wasn’t very forthcoming.
    Now they’ve gone full-on mega corporate shills, all the networks have.

    Oddly enough, the “journalists” at the alphabet news outlets seemed to believe Bob was some kind of sellout of their cherished ideals, when he ‘allowed’ the Chinese government to approve his playlist ahead of his performing over there.

    Bob plays music for a living. He gets hired to give concerts.
    If I hired musicians for an event, say a wedding, I would certainly discuss ahead of time what music I prefer with those I was paying.

    People like Lyin’ Brian seemed to want Bob to stand for the First Amendment or something. They wanted him to uphold values they don’t possess? Maybe they were waxing nostalgic for their innocent youth.

    The globalists are on the March. The war has been declared, not by the globalists as they do not have the cojones to confront anybody, but by Trump. He knows what is at stake at the border and finally, sans Sessions , he is moving to close it, whatever the political cost. The Deep State is going to throw every political trick they have at Trump to stop him from really enforcing the border.

    It really is a National Emergency and not because of the illegal immigrant problem. America is about to lose its autonomy to a group of globalist elites who think they are better and smarter than the rest of us. Everything being thrown at our border is a product of the Soros crowd. Waters protests today are a product of the Soros crowd. Border integrity is a necessity to hold sovereignty for a country and the Deep State is trying to do its utmost to destroy that integrity.

    It truly is an emergency.

    • Beryl of Oyl February 18, 2019 at 1:07 pm #

      One has to question why to politicians nowhere near said border are making it a top priority to leave it as it is, and then, and only then, can one begin to see what is really going on.

      I gather from your screen name that you are much closer than I am to the border, but my Senator Schumer really, really wants to insert himself into issues that affect you way more than they affect me.
      The open border does affect New Yorkers negatively as well, and I’m sure Chuck’s constituents are not in favor of his stance, because I personally don’t know anybody outside of politics or media who supports him on it.

      Chuck employed a spy, he really isn’t that smart on national security issues, so I don’t know why he should be up to his neck in this issue, with nobody in the mainstream media asking why.

    I keep coming back to the fact that if Trump had simply followed through on his election promises and 1.) investigated and jailed HRC and/or Obama and their entire entourage immediately after the 2016 election was over, and 2.) immediately directed the DoD to fund and build his wall in the same time period, that all the current hysterics would be moot. == Scratch

    Are you kidding? Before midterm elections Trump had no power whatsoever, all power belonged to the head of Deep State Hillary Clinton.

    Now, he got at best, 50%.

  27. Blah blah blah the fucking Globalists. The nuveau rich foreigners, like 21 Savage, just read this guys interview in the Times with the fawning John Caramanica. His vernacular is astonishingly moronic. “My situation is important ’cause I represent poor black Americans and I represent our immigrant Americans. You gotta think about all the millions of people that ain’t 21 Savage that’s in 21 Savage shoes.”

    Here are some of his contributions to lyric poetry:

    I’m playin’ with the rock like my real name is HOVA
    AK-47 still strapped to my shoulder
    Them niggas tote choppers like them niggas from Magnolia
    I fucked a nigga’s bitch
    I fucked another nigga’s bitch
    When you gettin money you can fuck a nigga’s bitch

    Unbelievable but this is lauded as quality popular music by “top critics”. Caramanica in particular. I’ve surveyed the lyrics of many of his favorite chart topping subjects. The lyrics are almost universally the same: profane, stupid, violent, sexist, etc. These songs are what high school drill teams practice to. Anyway, this guy is an illegal and he’s a millionaire. The best kept secret seems to be, to me, that many, many illegals aren’t poor. They’re rich. They are the drained brains, the petit bourgeoise, the families of criminal mafias. And this guy. Do you think Britain wants him back?

    That was a nice way of saying that Mr. McCabe has been singing to a grand jury. If so, then he’s an early bird, because many of his feathered friends will be following him into the grand jury chamber and then we’ll have the great Battle-of-the-Alibis.

    Jim,

    Heh, more like a Battle-of-The-Aviary in all of its droppings-smeared glory courtesy of the feathered friends, and, of course, Collusive Andy himself.

    Network journalism on the national level has transformed into vile and shameless infotainment, and the biggest newspapers are not far behind. Blogs and other websites are rich on opinion (although some of them are at least at times worth reading). Not sure how we can have an informed public in the future at this rate.

        As an aside, I actually was able to visit the Pays Cathare once. At the foot of the hill upon which are found the ruins of Montsegur, there is a small monument to the Cathars.

        The monument is worn, and would not be so impressive were it not for one fact: it commemorates an event, a demonstration of faith … that took place over 770 years ago. I haven’t run across many monuments that “look” that far back … talk about Long View.

        There are, of course, many ruins and sites related to ancient times, but although preserved, very few are actually commemorated by modern society — the preference today being the commemoration of more recent events and persons.

        As to the “dangerous awakening” … well, the Pope today, like the Pope then, has entered into secular alliances of questionable morality.

    60Minutes and CBS, for a certain generation, is the benchmark for journalistic integrity. Their last swashbuckling righteous reporter was Dan Rather, who even had his heroics put to music by an alt-pop band back in the 90’s, “What’s the Frequency Kenneth?”.
    Ole Dan committed journalistic suicide, ostensibly be questionable “facts” and source gathering, but really for his relentless work against a certain establishment deep-state wartime president, George Dumbya.

    60 minutes had a few more doozies, and most people stopped considering them a legitimate source even after they had long ago stopped accepting them as an unbiased source for “news”.
    Pelley is just another one. A rather preening and curious bird that enjoys the affectations of a hard-hitting journalist: muscles, tailored shirts, and eyeglass arms in lips.

    But, as we all knew, or know, it’s all an act. A last act for a dead program.

      Chuck Schumer pledges eternal loyalty to the Eternal Jewish Nation, both in Israel and here in “America”. Apparently his name means “guardian” in Yiddish and his ancestors were guardians of Galician Ghetto.

      youtube.com/watch?v=Qh8rpFTVBuM

      English Jews have their own police force – the Schomrim – which sounds cognate with the above. How is such a thing legal? It wouldn’t be if England was still England. And how is this guy allowed to be in Congress? Same reason on the level of principle.

      Not to pick exclusively on the Jews. There are Muslim and Black congress people who have zero allegiance to the United States. Thus do we crumble, and you think it’s progress.

    And when it all comes out in the wash, we will learn that they had to, because Trump is such a miserable human being and abject failure intent on destroying this country.

      So a President is elected, right?

      Then the other party gets in power and uses the 25th to oust him.

      Then the other party gets in and ousts his replacement.

      I have an idea. Let us just replace the voters with a committee from the Deep State and appoint a president. We will save lots of money that way.

      And oh, yeah, with a committee like that, they can make our decisions for us, so let’s get rid of our legislature too.

        I’ve got a better idea, let’s get a reality TV star, one entirely manufactured by who knows who, who is supposed to be a billionaire but no one really knows, and turn him into a champion for the people since who would be better in that role than a businessman billionaire. Then run him as an anti-establishment Republican. Since he is neither a billionaire, nor a champion of the people, we would need him to lie about everything, including his wealth, and accuse everyone else of being fake. We would give him an immigrant wife, since his entire campaign is anti-immigrant. We would also launch his political career on a lie that disparages the the first duly elected (by a far greater margin than he won by) black president, that he was not born in America, but was really Kenyan and a superb marathon runner and singer. Then pit him against the media so everything is a big huge drama, which gives his base erections, and nothing gets done ever, except tax cuts for the rich. Genius.

            hmuller, you make a big mistake in saying that henceforth you will ignore (i.e. not read) Seawolf’s comments. I’ve been on this CFN Blog going on 11 years and have seen about a hundred instances of people saying the same thing, and then trying to get others to join them in boycotting someone’s comments. It never works. You will continue reading Seawolf’s comments, perhaps even more so than anyone else’s comments. The reason is that you are now obsessed with the incredible fact that Seawolf could possibly hold opinions so opposite your own. You are doubly pissed off that he rather cleverly expresses those heinous opinions.

            Take me for example, I almost never read one of the comments posted by the guy who used to go by the name John Galt (can’t think of his current handle). I also never click on one of his links. I also almost never read a Finca comment especially if it is long. This is because I have no knowledge of Russian history or present day Russian politics. But I DO NOT attempt to get others to join me in my boycott. It would be useless to do so.

          Every presidency is a show. Except in Bill Clinton’s case where it was a “blow”. Wasn’t he the one accused of rape by 4 or 5 women but no one cared. How do you feel about him?

          How is it Trump is accused of being anti-immigrant. He is anti-migrant. There’s a difference. Do our laws mean nothing?

          Where is it in the Constitution that says a president must reveal his tax returns? Why is that such a big deal?

          Wasn’t it Obama who was using the IRS to hammer conservative organizations? Does that not bother you?

          Obama was, and is, all about bling. Nothing of substance there at all. But then I think Harry Truman was the best president the nation ever had.

I felt like W ceded control of his administration to the Dick Cheney, who worked his ass off to screw all of us and benefit Halliburton which at the time owned Kellog, Brown and Root which got rich off the Vietnam War via Lyndon Johnson and is still getting rich off of the wars we fight. W was asleep at the wheel. Tax returns did not exist when the Constitution was penned, but Alexander Hamilton was known as a British stooge none the less. Today we need to see the president’s tax returns so we can see if they are beholden to anybody or any country. I mean it is evident the Trump is a Russian stooge. The question is why? Obama got the average American healthcare and forced insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions. Republicans took his singular achievement away and now they are trying to go back to when insurance companies did not have to cover people who were sick and make them pure profit machines. What good are they when they do not actually function as insurance?

            Obama and the democrats jammed a bill through congress because they could. They disallowed any input from the other party. This is hardly democracy. Of course then payback comes when the WH changes hands.

            I despair that anyone thinks that because Clinton worked his ass off that his alledged rapes go uncontested, not investigated not to mention ruining the life of a young intern. Then there is his relationship with Mr. Epstein and the young girls in his web.

            Obama got nothing accomplished to get us out of these absurd and endless wars. His only “accomplishment” with the military was to bring in trans types and to make the military into a social restructuring experiment. Meanwhile, young people die and get maimed for nothing. Mr. Trump tells the Pentagon to shut up and obey and he gets grief.

            If Trump is a stooge for Russia, he sure is putting the sanction screws to them. If you want to look at Russia connections, then let’s investigate Mrs. Clinton. I have to give the democrats credit for their relentless campaign to keep the heat on Mr. Trump instead of their own crimes.

            When they impeached Bill Clinton I said to myself this country has far more important things it needs to be working on, thinking about, talking about. Look at all the time and effort that went into that impeachment and what did it accomplish? Nothing. Now the Republicans have led us into immigrant purgatory. We just have to sustain ourselves for a short while and soon we’ll be in heaven. In the grand scheme of things it is less than nothing. It should be relegated the stature it deserves.

      The 25th amendment was created because of President Wilson, who had a major stroke in his 2nd term. His second wife and a character known as ‘Colonel House’ made most executive decisions after that.

      Can the 25th be used on Ruth Bator Ginsberg? She appears to be near non functionable about this time?

      • hmuller February 18, 2019 at 4:37 pm #

        The 25th amendment was passed by Congress in 1965; ratified and became law in 1967. While memories of Wilson may have played a role, so did memories of FDR’s ill health, Eisenhower’s heart attacks, and the thought that Kennedy might have survived Dallas in a much impeded condition.

        The 25th Amendment applies to the President and Vice-President, not Supreme Court justices.

    I think now would be a good time to make an assessment of Mrs. Clinton’s style of statecraft. When trying to reach a conclusion on some issue, it’s useful to get different points of view. The best opinions are often the ones of those with first hand knowledge. With that in mind we should ask Mr. Muammar Al Gathafi, former prime minister of Libya, how Mrs. Clinton’s policies affected his country. Oh, wait. We can’t. He’s dead. Maybe we should ask the refugees from the Honduran coup. You know the one with the Hillary Clinton seal of approval? They’re the ones clamoring to seek asylum at the US-Mexico border. No luck there. Most of them don’t speak English. Let’s give Haiti a try. Remember how Mrs. Clinton intervened on behalf of sweatshop owners to cut the minimum wage in half? I doubt many Haitian seamstresses would have a good word for Mrs. C. Maybe someone closer to home would have a good word for her. How about Henry Kissinger? He thinks Mrs. Clinton has done a bang-up job. However, “Butcher of Cambodia” has a rather bad connotation, so maybe we should take his assessment with a grain of salt.

    My conclusion is that Hillary Clinton is willing to throw anybody under the bus in the pursuit of power. She’s also a schemer, always working a few moves ahead. It doesn’t seem like much of a stretch for her to undermine a sitting president of the US while trying to shift the blame to someone we’re all meant to see as evil incarnate, the dreaded Vladimir Putin, author of everything bad and eater of babies. Nice try, Hill. Where did you go so wrong?

    It turns out Trump is someone the military-industrial-complex can work with. Your assessment of Trump as a bumbling oaf may have been correct, but even a bumbling oaf can still carry water for global capital accumulation. Worse than Trump would have been a failed presidency and that was probably the thing the Deep State refused to accept. Above all the deep state wants a government busy making hay and not standing around the barn arguing about who gets to swing the scythe.

    Now that the Russia-gate ruse had played itself out with no tangible benefits, what’s next? You have to do something to keep all those eyes from turning to the DNC. Maybe lay low and let the attention shift to one of the perennial enemies like, i don’t know, Iran? How about a new pantsuit that matches the wallpaper? Or just leave the country on a speaking tour of Saudi Arabia, Brazil, and the City of London?

    Ukrainization of the United States, or what we have to do with all that?

    So much has happened over the past week that at other times such a number of sensations would be enough for six months.

    But on Sunday political broadcasts, all this news was overshadowed by an announcement by the US President Donald Trump of the state of emergency, officially for the construction of a steel wall on the border with Mexico.

    Moreover, among the “democratic” media verbiage about the illegality of the official reason, a sensible thought flashed that in fact the state of emergency was declared due to the obstructionist position of the democratic majority in the House of Representatives and these same media – that is, o horror! – this state of emergency was announced against them.

    Oh God! From this thought, they just lost the gift of speech! Meanwhile, only this week:

    1. On February 14, the appointment as US Attorney General of the former Attorney General in the George Bush Sr. Administration, William Barr, became the culmination of the historical and political intrigue I call the Big Bargain, which I began writing about at the end of September after a dramatic change in the strategic balance of the forces of the World Colored Projects which manifested itself during the hearing of Judge Kavanaugh for position of Justice of the US Supreme Court

    2 The day before yesterday, the former. FBI chief executive McCabe gave an interview to “60 Minutes,” in which he said that Deputy US Attorney General Rosenstein had suggested that he work out a plan for forcibly removing US President Donald Trump on the basis of the 25th amendment to the Constitution

    3 Vice President Pence, one of the initiators of “crusade” against Venezuela, was ostracized by US NATO allies at a security meeting in Munich, after Congress tried to pass a special law prohibiting President Trump leaving NATO and taking with him the rest of the United States.

    And the main initiator of the aforementioned crusade against Venezuela, the senator from Florida Marco Rubio, the leadership of the Republican Party asked to resign after Rubio said that he did not support the presidential decree on the introduction of state of emergency.

    The most interesting thing is that all these events are the result of only one phrase from Trump’s address to the people and the Congress “On the State of the Union”, in which he launched the anti-Venezuelan campaign in the US against the left wing of the Democratic Party, which caused a split in the Clintonoid camp right about 5 minutes before they were supposed to impeach him.

    But the counter-intelligence reported precisely this time and the situation in the United States was quite adequately described by Russia FM Lavrov, avoiding any dirty Russian swearing, but quite intelligently calling the Minister of Defense of the United Kingdom the Minister of War and politely dressing down the correspondent of the Washington Post newspaper which belongs to the richest man on the planet Bezos, who, judging by this Lavrov’s reply, in the very near future will have to explain to the officials of the Department of Justice how the US Postal Service got underpaid billions of dollars from his company, Amazon.

    And in this regard, I suggest taking a look at following video in an interview with the sponsor of the “hellish” sanctions against Russia, the very influential Chairman of the Senate Judicial Committee, Lindsey Graham. It seems to me that the expression of his face after viewing these passages better than anything else characterizes not only the essence of these confessions of McCabe and the situation in the United States, but also the meaning of “hellish” sanctions against Russia.

You all must realize he’s guilty as sin, and since you right wingers could never back a traitor, then he must have been removed from office via a coup. Nice try.

    • SoftStarLight February 19, 2019 at 1:56 am #

      Very interesting post. I have always loved fire too. It’s so powerful and destructive, yet it is so beautiful it can lull you or put you in a trance watching it dance, leap and glow. An elemental connection with the divine nature of creation and destruction maybe?

          Bravo. The last nation in Europe to become Christian – but they chose to do so instead of being conquered. Not that the Christians didn’t try either. Every year for many years they would trek thru the horrendously thick forests and mud, only to be met by the fierce pagan warriors who knew they were coming – and were better rested and knew the land better.

          I assume they began to fee isolated, surrounded by strangers. No doubt their holy men studied the new religion and found it contained some of the same great Truths as their own, albeit in a very different form. So they switched without believing they were becoming the equivalent of Satanists.

          The Sioux Holy Man, Black Elk, converted to Catholicism – without seeming to give up his earlier beliefs but also without hypocrisy. This kind of thing baffles the narrow. When asked why, He replied, I want my children to have Life.

    Here is a big rub about the border.

    The wall is an attempt to put in a stop against the immigrants illegally crossing the border. It needs to be 30 ft, tall, concrete to 20 ft. Underground with sonar monitoring for tunneling.

    Without violence.

    The illegal crossings will not stop with open gaps or with 10 foot steel barriers.

    They will not stop until someone is shot and killed attempting to cross illegally.

    This is an invasion trying to tear down our country and until someone has enough cojones in DC to shoot to kill the invaders they will just keep on coming. It is a tough pill to swallow but necessary.

    Hey, if the invaders were ISIS, what would we do? There is not much difference in their impact.

    If the commitment is not made to protect the border to this degree, then throw it open and start adapting to the New World Order taking over the country.

    • seawolf77 February 18, 2019 at 7:32 pm #

      Oh please give it a rest boy who cried wolf a million jillion times. Do you realize the important things we could be talking about like healthcare, MIC, drug legalization, the green economy? Don’t you see? It’s a distraction, like Bill Clinton’s impeachment. It’s not even a red herring, it’s a brown cockroach, but you people have it crawling across a white carpet with its antenna on fire laying down a line of roach turds that stink to high heaven and glow an iridescent brown. It’s a nothing burger. On a scale of 1 to 10 it’s 88th. It’s not even a pimple on my ass. But you people have made it the whole world. Shame on you. Shame on you!

      • JohnAZ February 18, 2019 at 8:02 pm #

        As usual, you are talking out Your posterior.

        The border is the number one issue in the country as it is changing this country from a self dependent group of folks into a Gimme State. Are you a gimme person, you sure sound like one. It makes this country into a land ripe for a socialist, Communist takeover, just what people like you want. Drug legalization? The green economy? Get real!

        If you have kids, do you want to teach them to be independent self reliant people or people dependent on the government for their well being.

        I want the 30 ft. Wall with underground protection as an alternative to having to shoot these invaders. Stop them from coming in the first place. Stop the incentive they are getting from neo-Liberals globally.

        Just stop them.

      I do agree with you, JohnAZ, just from the viewpoint of overpopulation if nothing else. Like I’ve said before, if you think it’s bad now, just wait until the conditions of global warming make their entry fully. I don’t think anyone can imagine all of the problems which will present themselves when the full onset of climate change hits, and one of the biggest will be the population shift, which will occur as various parts of the globe become uninhabitable. Mass immigrations will occur, probably along the lines of Camp of the Saints, and first world nations will be inundated with refugees. That’s when the ugliness will start, and it won’t be pretty. Near as I can see, a lot of people don’t want to think about uncomfortable scenarios like this, and it’s only human to want to ignore the unpleasantness that will follow. Humans ignore unpleasant thoughts until reality bites them in the ass. I’ve seen it happen before, & it’ll happen again. I know i’m repeating myself, but this stuff needs to be said.

      • 100th Avatar February 18, 2019 at 8:32 pm #

        Humans have evolved an incredible capacity for cognitive dissonance.

        It’s a veritable lifesaver.

        To be able to store unpleasant thoughts and truths
        in the darkest reaches of the memory hole.

        An evolutionary advantage.

        It seems to me that our sentient forbears took long walks off short tree limbs.

        They couldn’t live with knowledge.

        We can however, and it’s through an evolutionary advantage called willful ignorance.

        Some of us have gone a step further. We are inured.
        This is through practice.
        Mind over the mind.
        Those not counted amongst us, they’re the ones that will kill us all.
        They’re delusions that we must not speak of.

          In my case, Avatar, just the opposite was true for me. In the service I saw many examples of what could happen to me. Before a mission, rather than try to put it all out of my mind, I followed the advice in the Hagakure, written by Yamamoto Tsunetomo, who said: “Bushido is the way of dying, or, living as though you were already dead.” It solves the problem of PTSD if done properly. It also allows you to think with a clear mind, and, paradoxically helps to keep you alive. It also allows you to think without emotional encumbrances which might cause you to make a wrong decision, based on your desires. Cognitive dissonance is everywhere, and I see it screw people up all the time.

    If they equate Trump with God and God’s “Plan”, then don’t the Christians give Trump basically a “Free Pass” to do whatever he wants since every time Trump reneges it becomes another Christian Circle-Jerk Test-of-Faith in their Belief In God?

      As a Christian I can say God gives you the leaders you deserve at the time they are needed.

      He gave us Trump to see just how corrupt American Politics have become and the lengths the media will go to cover one and attach the other.
      With that said no leader gets a free pass without media covering up their misdeeds!
      So no your post is 100% wrong and should be point squarely at Democrats who hate the Constitution and the bill of rights as well as America with a passion.
      Just listen to them they hate the founders and the framework!
      They hate the people that are not in lock step and are doing everything they can to make America look like the racists nation they so desperately crave.

One who only fears and desires the All Father and has sworn to serve Him and His people until his dying breath – and is not chary about making the Communists die for their beliefs.

    In the windup, JHK sez:

    “Whether you are a Trump cheerleader or not (I’m not), there is a reality-based chain of events behind the FBI’s actions from early 2016 on — and the actions of other official players in government — that can only be clarified now in the courts, and chances are pretty good that they will be. It concerns me because the specter of massive institutional failure in federal law enforcement and the news media bodes very darkly for this country’s future.”

    Justice has been completely politicized, as always happens when megalomaniacs seize the levers of power. It’s been creeping towards total control by these freaks of nature since the end of WW2 (brought into being by yet another freak of nature). A sweeping away of competitors helped immensely.

    Allow me to go even “bigger picture” than JHK’s immediate warning about the rule of law failing.
    Look at the blatancy of the meddling in Venezuela by the Deep State (Eliott Abrams! Are you SHITTING me?!?) in their quest to install a satrap in that state benighted by massive amounts of the ol’ Texas Tea. Um, *why now* exactly?
    In my foolish opinion, it’s to get us used to transparency in toppling duly elected governments… because “They” are assiduously working to make it happen here. This used to have at least a thin veil of legality and humanitarian justification; no more. (All bald-faced lies, I might add.)

    Sedition? By the time this shakes out, Treason will be more like it.
    What I’m finding a black comedy about this whole clusterfuck is that Trump and his Trump-humpers are falling for this “evil dictator who must be deposed” horseshit in its entirety! Pretty amazing; cheering for ones’ own disenfranchisement and the destruction of common law.

    If you are one of those guzzling the Kool-aid about Venezuela that Trump is helping to pour, you drink to your eventual obliteration. That also goes for those beating up on the powerless and helpless.

    The message is: “We do as we like, you can’t do shit about it so shut up and go back to sleep.” Turdblossom said much the same, and damn if he wasn’t correct. Things are much farther gone than most would like to think. (That includes the surrendering of supposedly “inalienable” rights at the same time; it’s all of a piece.)

      I don’t disagree about the reasons for not meddling in Venezuela. It’s not a nail for the US hammer to be hitting.
      However, I know a few Venezuelans, and Maduro and his mafia are devastating that country. A mafia stealing and secreting wealth. But who rescued us from the wealth transfer that we suffer from the mafia of vulture capitalists and corporate welfare defense contractors?
      Nobody.
      Why should the US rescue them from theirs’?

      • Target practice. The only reason Maduro is holding on to power is his military and official goon squads.

        Target practice is a real good reason! Ammo goes bad after a while. Machines that aren’t regularly operated tumble down to “Russian” levels of reliability.

        Plus Trump already made a big show of declaring the opposition leader the rightful president.

Maybe that is why the made up media ginned up the whole Russia collusion narrative? They projected onto Putin and the Russian government what they expect of leaders here. Constant and corrosive meddling in the political affairs of other countries.

    So Pete, regarding Venezuela what do you think should be done considering conditions there are pretty bad and getting worse?

    Just hands off and let them go down?

    Or try to help in some other way? (than what we are doing now, which you obviously disagree with)

    I think a few days ago the Dept of State landed 3 C47s full of medical and sanitary supplies in Columbia near the Venezuelan border, which should help some. Clearly something has to change as there is actual famine inside the country right now as well as unchecked street violence and brutal police methods employed by Cuban security agents against Venezuelan citizens. One thing the US might be concerned with is a general collapse creating a power vacuum, and Chinese elite marines and Russian Spetznatz rushing in to fill that vacuum.

    Its a complicated situation, made even more so by existing oil reserves, that’s for sure.

    cheers

      “Just hands off and let them go down?”

      M.,
      In a word: yes.
      It’s their mess; let them handle it. Things will go as they must. Too much repression by those trying to help the poor, or those just helping themselves and shit gets real, as always. Not twisted by outsiders imposing their will for the purpose of grift and skim. (And we know damn well that’s what the motivation is. Any other ‘excuse’ is a horrific and deadly lie.)

      I’ve been to that area; some of the richest (formerly volcanic) cropland I’ve ever seen. Beautiful fruits and veggies year ’round. If there are people starving, it’s for some very fishy (corrupt) reasons, or plain and simple over-population. They really have no need to import anything for basic survival.

      There’s nothing justifying invasion or meddling, as Trump has overtly threatened. If this trickery is successful, how should we perhaps feel if Nancy Pelosi stands up and declares herself “the legitimate President of the United States”? Same kinda deal that our Dept. of State is pushing on Maduro. There’s much bullshit that isn’t being put ‘on the table’ here. Believe that, if nothing else.

      Not to get too far into the weeds here (as the only tangential factor regarding the curious case of the S. American country that would not obey is Rule of Law), but there are whispers and rumors. These rustlings, creakings, and twig-snappings refer to a real-life Troopus Americanus (and that good ol’ Coalition of the Willing-for-a-cut-of-the-proceeds) invasion of Venezuela as another (and most assuredly, LAST) excellent Viet-raq debacle/clusterfuck that will put an end to the world-straddling Collosus of American Empire.*

      In those rustlings is a consummation devoutly to be wished by those particular mousies. They say, “DO it, go ‘head; what could go wrong?” Is it a dark ploy within a dark ploy? (Your opinion/guess would probably be more accurate than mine, for sure!)

      *I guess the lesson would be: Don’t start a bound-to-fail civil war that you have no hope of ending… to the satisfaction of the corporate plunderers.

        That might have been me, Pete. My brother has a place right on River Road, and I’ve been doing some ‘magnet fishing’ in the area, pulling out reels, jack knives, tools, scraps of iron, you name it, from the river.

        Just on the nice days (above 25dF, and sunny), which are few and far between.

        Oz, I think when the president threatened armed intervention in Venezuela it was to pressure Maduro to flee to Cuba, his most likely destination. Altho, one of my nephews, an army paratooper, was suddenly sent with his unit to Louisiana about 2 weeks ago for training at Fort Polk, which we thought was a little strange because he just returned from Afghanistan not very long ago. So who knows.

    I think that the future of our country looks very dark too. I am very tired of being lied to. Aren’t you? If there isn’t trust what is there? Without basic trust, the institutions that we rely on will crumble. They’re actually in the process of falling apart now. And without the facade of normalcy and the illusion of functioning institutions we are left with disparate groups of people with very little in common living under the same roof so to speak. What history has shown to be a recipe for disaster. And to boot, we have a media who enjoys stirring the pot of animosity and distrust as though they want bad things to happen so they can justify their otherwise useless occupation of airtime. So yeah, its not looking too good. But there is no reason to be completely blue! One more day without major unrest or turmoil is one more day to get ready.

        • seawolf77 February 20, 2019 at 4:02 pm #

          It was such a sham. Everyone else in the world knew it was a coup, but no one in America suspected it, except the good people of Texas who knew LBJ, knew what he was capable of, knew he could and would get away with it. I think Governor John Connally killed JFK and everyone thing we know was just show. All the rifleman were told to shoot and miss. So people heard rifle shots and bullets whizzing by. But that’s not how he died. It was a simple hit, up close and personal. Everyone there smelled gunpowder at street level, and the wind was blowing across Dealey Plaza that day, meaning it could not have come from the grassy knoll. Notice how Jackie was not perturbed about all the rifle fire, not until that last shot which came from the floor of the car, and the trigger was pulled by Big Bad John Connally. They were best friends, LBJ was best man at his wedding. Those 2 Texans changed the world.

    • SoftStarLight February 19, 2019 at 1:04 am #

      So who are the other 29 million if they are not illegal? I think there are probably between 30 to 40 million illegals actually but nobody knows because its racist to think about and to talk about. And they almost made it illegal to ask the citizenship question on the census!

      • Lets see

        “An estimated 13.3 million legal permanent residents (LPRs) were living in the United States on January 1, 2012 (see Table 1). An estimated 8.8 million of the total 13.3 million were eligible to naturalize.”

        This recent paper study’s model posits: “The mean estimate based on our simulation analysis is 22.1 million”

        journals.plos.org/plosone/articleid=10.1371/journal.pone.0201193

        13.3+22.1 = 35.4 million.

        So where to find an extra 4.6 million?

        Maybe retroactive denaturalization of all the Chinese anchor babies. Or perhaps certain revocations of citizenship for certain bad apples.

        A punishment for violators of US labor laws (hiring illegals)… how many?

        162,000 are serving life sentences. Do they really need citizenship? For what?

        There are quite a few ex-pats that could be downgraded to permanent ex-resident status.

    Women have no business in MMA. If trans-women want to be in MMA, that’s fine. I knew one who was going for xer’s green belt who had some big honkers. Fair enough, but xer probably didn’t have the typical number of nerve endings in an at-birth-womyn’s breasts.

Or rather, we must choose for you. A girl who craves MMA or other forbidden things will be free to leave once she comes of age. Whether she gets back in again will be a far more difficult question.

        Janos is right. I think he means dances, not testicles. Not only do I realize some chicks are crazy, I realize ALL chicks are crazy deep down, including you. That is why the 19th was such a mistake. Women do not belong in the public sphere, period. Feminism was THE Big Mistake of the modern age. Even most males on this site cannot bear to admit this. Shariah or something like it is inevitable. The woman must be dominated by the man, if not by one of her race, then by that of an alien one, which means the downfall of Western Man in the latter case. She will keep shit-testing until she finds the dominant male. It is our task to awake the sleeping masculine spirit in the Western psyche. See F. Roger Devlin.

For that I don’t know what to say, but that you made me speechless and unresponsive for a minute. But you know what? I appreciate this moment of sincerity and truth. Part of me wanted to get a little bit of an attitude in response and another part of me kinda liked being talked to this way. I mean you have seen how I have been talked to here before so I have to be a tiny bit masochistic to keep coming back. But I do have good ideas and beautful posts no matter how 19th amendment-worthy you think I am! And I prefer gentility and pedestals and finery and your either/or lol so I guess everything worth something requires sacrifices. That’s what happens in a relationship anyways. These posts really threw me off. I feel like I was having some fun and joking with you (but not at you) and then I crashed into a wall of testosterone lol.

        • Janos Skorenzy February 20, 2019 at 2:02 am #

          Balls as in Dances! But yes, getting back to that will take Brass Balls. Btw, I’m all for athleticism for women – including martial arts and firearms. In the East, aristocratic girls were often so trained.

          Once near Calcutta during the British Raj, drunken English sailors overcame the Temple Guard and made their way into a Hindu Temple. A devout Rani or Queen who had been praying heard them coming. Instead of running for her life or out of fear of being raped, she took a weapon off the wall and prepared to defend the inner sanctum against defilement. The authorities had been alerted and intervened before it came to that however.

          You have to understand that better society had issues even with men boxing, but understood the deep need that was there, at least in the middle and lower classes. But women doing it? Such a thing is like dog fighting, only for the far fringes, completely incompatible with our historical civilization. It can be tolerated in Men, but not in Women.

          On the American Frontier, there was a form of fighting called “gouging”. It was as horrible as it sounds. No holds barred. Utter savagery. We left all that behind but now we are going back to it, it seems. Now young women competing in say, a Karate competition, is something else again. But again, the whole ethos will be towards gentility and domesticity. Girls who really want some rough stuff will have some opportunity (ever watch girl’s lacrosse?) and of course, martial arts training. But never can they be allowed the same brutality as men display – not in polite society.

          Old London descended into chaos caused by industrialism. Crimes soared and many of the upper classes took up boxing to defend themselves and their women. Others took to carrying pistols and sword canes, etc. Some women carried small pistols in their purses and were willing to use long hat pins.

I would end up being like that French policewoman who started crying because of the Yellow Vests. Did you hear about that? But I will carry a little pistol with me and some pepper spray. Oh and I also would like to have a taser. I mean I keep pepper spray and a taser in my purse when I have to go into town and stuff because there are maniacs everywhere now in our society.

            But at least they are being honest. Which is more than I can say for others I have run into. And actually it seems like they care more. I mean, the men who are supposed to be bad are nice to me at the end of the day. So it’s difficult for me to resolve what is supposed to be a contradiction. Like, I have more respect for you when you point out the bad things in me because it makes me want to work on myself. If I can just run over you then I won’t respect you. I don’t know if any of that makes sense but that’s how I feel right now.

          • GreenAlba February 20, 2019 at 10:19 am #

            “If I can just run over you then I won’t respect you.”

            Why would you run over someone in the first place?

            Mutual respect is where it’s at. If you’re talking about relationships. Maybe you’re talking about something else.

            And those men that are supposed to be bad but are nice to you might only be nice if you toe the line. Their line. That’s not nice.

            “Like, I have more respect for you when you point out the bad things in me because it makes me want to work on myself.”

            Entirely fine if it’s entirely mutual. Mutual self-improvement? No problem. That’s not what these guys are touting. They’re touting you-improvement – improvement to suit them.

            I once accidentally chanced upon a Reddit conversation between disgusting men discussing how to keep their ‘bitches’ in line. One went into great detail about his system. His er…girlfriend did something he didn’t like. So she had to be punished to learn her place. She got moved down to level one of the four levels he defined in his relationships. She might, by grovelling and all sorts I don’t want to imagine, move back to level two. Or possibly even level three, if he hadn’t replaced her by that time. But never level four. She’d seen level four for the very last time just by displeasing him.

            Now I have difficulty imaging scrote-bags like this, but the twatosphere assures me they exist. And makes me very glad I’m independent enough (including financially) to never have to suffer subhumans like that who dole out niceness like I give my dog ‘juicybones’.

            Freud was right: control of human sexuality is the bedrock of Civilization. And the Feminists are right: Control of feminine sexuality is the basis of civilization.

            Is a normal man – a man worth having – going to support a child which he doesn’t know is his? As if HE has no desire to reproduce and a child is a child is a child? As if women wouldn’t care if they were given the wrong baby from the nursery? Ridiculous? Of course, but I’ve heard Feminists talk this way about men, blaming them for wanting THEIR OWN.

            Thus Freud and the Feminists are on the same page. Sexuality must be channeled – and female sexuality is more important to channel for the reason I give above. It’s good you learn this stuff, Alba. Better late than never, eh?

            Janos, my kids are grown up and responsible members of their respective communities. ‘Better late than never’ is somewhat inappropriate. They are also honest, because that’s the way they were brought up.

            I can’t answer for dishonest people – male or female – I have no time for them and they make their own problems.

            And I don’t have to answer for feminists of any silly variety. I don’t call myself any kind of -ist but I know what I’ll put up with and what I won’t put up with.

            And I know of men who’ve supported children they knew weren’t theirs from the start, if they’ve married a widow, for example. They treat them as they’re own, on the whole, if the child is young enough and the man is man enough.

            I had a husband who didn’t love one of his very own because she was the wrong sex, so don’t waste your breath.

      Well that is a fine little point you bring up but I see you haven’t accepted your re-education just yet ;-). See brh, only Whites are racist. The Chinese are therefore NOT racist even though they are literally imprisoning an entire population. Something the world has not seen before on this magnitude from what I understand. But it would ONLY be a bad thing if the Chinese were White. Otherwise, it is just their business and no one has one word to say about it. Meanwhile you just need to mind your business and remember that you can’t have a country, a border, a wall, safety, security or liberty because your White Male patriarchy is literally killing the world.

    “Just stop them” is the way to go John. An armed presence on the border with shoot to kill orders, after say 30 days of saturating Mexico with warnings.

    Strict protocols will be followed. Subsequently, no one will be spared. No one.

    Vehicles with machine guns. Helicopter flyovers, with attack Apaches spitting fire and fury, turning those cholos into chorizo.

    Then put out some possibilities of what might happen to illegals already here. Exit corridors could be determined. Nothing but assholes and elbows moving South.

    After a dozen or two entering illegally are shot dead, with wide publicity, border security would return as sure as the sun will rise.

    But there is no will, no strength. We are barren of resolve, filled with only the diarrhea of diversity, dysfunctional Democracy and a dung hill of depraved political devils.

    God, it could be so easy.

      I am sick of these stinking liberals fighting the immigration crackdown when they do not have a clue what they are talking about.

      Call it a superwall. 30 ft. High with broken glass at the top, or razor wire, with a concrete foundation twenty feet into the ground and sonar sounding looking for tunneling. A second smaller fence fifty feet behind the primary wall with a patrol road between to stop throwing drugs over the wall. Motorized surveillance every fifteen minutes with real time visual surveillance 100%.

      Ports of entry will be the only access points. Their security will need to be tightened up with inspection done on every entry that history shows is used to bring in drugs. If with vegetables. Every shipment of vegetables to be inspected. And so forth.

      Expensive? Yep!

      But less expensive than letting all the drugs, etc. and welfare cases into the country.

      And definitely less expensive than letting the globalists drain this country’s capital base.

      The object of the superwall is to avoid the bloodshed of enforcing the border by force of arms. One Kent State incident at the border would stop a lot of the illicit crossing, a policy of shoot to kill would stop it especially with warnings to the potential immigrants. All the incentives given to them would not stack up against an impenetrable border, one way or the other.

      It is just a matter of time until the US will have to defend the border as the resources of the country are drained off. I would prefer the potential immigrants and drug mules faced a real superwall than machine guns and Apache gunships.

        The only way is to take the profit out of drugs. Lower demand or increase supply. It’s expensive because it is illegal. Simple.

          Exactly. Talk about a racket, it’s the racket of rackets. If I have to hear these bleeding heart conservatives cry over the poor children, all the people dying because of drugs. Grow the fuck up. Legalize it and let people be adults and take care of their own children.

            Duarte is trying the same thing in the Philippines, but he’s getting some pushback from the butt pounders on the UN Commission on Human Rights.

            Duterte would have your son shot down on the street if he just took drugs after falling for Oxycontin, no pushing (he’d probably leave the genteel Sackler family alone).

            “‘If you know of any addicts, go ahead and kill them yourself’”

            (Duterte’s inauguration speech).

            If you didn’t like your son being shot and claimed human rights, people might call you a butt pounder. But we’re in the realm of hypothesis here. I trust you’ve been lucky as regards your kids. Me too. Sans hashtag.

            amnesty.org.uk/philippines-president-duterte-war-on-drugs-thousands-killed

            Maybe Duterte’s just a psychopath. Like in the Westerns where someone killed yer pa’ so you could go on a shooting spree and tell yourself it wasn’t just because you liked shooting sprees.

            Seems all you have to do in the Phillippines to get shot by police is to be poor. Mistaken identity? No problem. Neighbour doesn’t like you? No problem. Vigilantes are paid by the kill.

            *******

            Still, things seem to be moving on the Sackler front, so small mercies and all that…

            jwatch.org/fw114981/2019/01/17/lawsuit-sackler-family-pushed-efforts-mislead-public

            Fingers crossed. Justice may not be a property of the universe, but maybe it’ll find a temporary space in Massachusetts.

            Or perhaps you should just invite Duterte over to deal with them.

            Seriously, brh, what about that? Should the Sacklers – all of them, since individual justice involves hard work and public expense – just be dragged into a back alley by paid angels of vengeance and dealt with? Where’s Charles Bronson when you need him?

            If not, why not? And if it’s not OK for the Sacklers why is it OK for some poor sod in the Phillippines who never got to go to secondary school?

    The way the crown ended piracy in the 1720s is hang pirates and leave them hanging sometimes for years at port entries where they could be seen by incoming and out going ships — in London, Boston, Newport (mass hanging of 27 pirates in 1725) New Providence, Kingston … prospective pirates got the message real quick that turning pirate was not a good career move with a long term future.

        Yes, we must bring back public execution. If it’s done in semi-private, its invaluable lesson is wasted. So therefore, hang ’em high and let ’em swing in wind.

        There is nothing cruel or unusual about it. Not doing it is cruel and unusual if it can deter other would be criminals. As for the convict, give him time to repent, etc beforehand. The trapdoor method is very quick and humane in terms of his suffering. Far, far more so than the Chair or Injection, despite or techno obsession and feminine fixation on “medicine” even as we’re putting someone to death. And there is a minimum of gore, so the horror addicts and sadists won’t get off on it to much. Of course they will enjoy the decay process of the hanging corpse, but what can you do? There is also a great lesson in that for many. Life is fragile and brief. Our kids are so sheltered that they do things like throwing concrete blocks of overpasses for kicks – and then are amazed that it wasn’t a video game and they just caused carnage.

        • BackRowHeckler February 19, 2019 at 5:44 pm #

          ‘Hang ’em high’, good slogan, and an excellent place to start. In Boston and in Newport, RI, Cotton Mather would show up before or after the executions and say a few words, so any guilt the townspeople or executioners might have felt was expunged.

          I agree. We should take a show like “Soul Train,” and in a split screen, while everybody’s grooving to Marvin Gaye “What’s going on,” you could have an execution going on in the split screen. One week the electric chair, the next lethal injection, the next hanging (yawn), the next drawn and quartered. Get the message to the right people. Afterwards, the latest hit from Trump, “Space Force,” starring Donald Trump as Admiral Quirk, Stephen Miller as Speck, Katelyn Conway as Uhura-rah-rah, and Mick Mulvaney reprising his role as the Boner.

            I suppose ‘discrete’ vices would be better than some kind of vice co-morbidity. Although I suppose, in truth, that there are many vices that congregate with other vices. And breed.

          I like the line of thinking on this thread. Who says execution doesn’t have any deterrence value? If that’s true, why is it that so many on death row file endless appeals to put off the day of reckoning?

          • SoftStarLight February 20, 2019 at 10:05 am #

            As long as they are just decisions it seems like it is better for society altogether. I mean taxpayers have to fund the death row inmates until their day of justice no matter what horrible things they have done. That doesn’t seem fair. If you have done something to deserve capital punishment then there shouldn’t be a long waiting period for justice. It should be swift and just get it over with. And with other people in jail on lesser charges society should do more to reform these people and get them out of the prisons quicker. There should be no such thing as private (for profit) prisons.

          • GreenAlba February 20, 2019 at 11:04 am #

            “As long as they are just decisions…”

            But they’re not always. It was after a man was wrongfully hanged in the UK after someone else murdered his wife that the death penalty was abolished.

            And there have been a number of high-profile miscarriages of justice in the UK, including the ‘Birmingham Six’ and the ‘Guildford Four’ where the public and the media were gagging to see someone – anyone – punished for IRA atrocities. And the Metropolitan Police (joking referred to at the time as ‘sponsored by Tippex’) were happy to oblige. Who needs justice when you can have hot ‘vengeance’? Those men spent years in jail before being cleared but at least they were there to be freed.

            “Who says execution doesn’t have any deterrence value? If that’s true, why is it that so many on death row file endless appeals to put off the day of reckoning?”

            If that’s true, why is anyone on death row in the first place?

            Change exists on the margins. Of course, it probably won’t deter the majority of those who end up on death row. Not only are they violent, but they’re stupid; that’s why they’re on death row.

            It will deter others however, who are capable of greater foresight & self-control.

            It’s been hypothesized by researchers that swift execution in Britain for capital crimes gradually eliminated most of the stupid violent people over several hundred years & that’s why the incidence of violent crime diminished steadily over that period. Notwithstanding that all such historical or social research is suspect, the hypothesis is a reasonable one. People used to understand this. Where did the common sense go?

            I’m a believer in common sense, Tate, where common sense is appropriate.

            I don’t follow it without thinking, e.g. where ‘research’ seems ‘reasonable’ without any actual evidence of its reasonableness.

            Lots of things have been hypothesised. In ‘Freak Economics’ the authors hypothesised that the observable reduction in crime in the US was likely due to the liberalisation of abortion laws, i.e. fewer children were born into poor, drug-addled or otherwise less favourable households, ergo, less future crime.

            I couldn’t say – the evidence that it was a major cause would be pretty impossible to find, but the authors thought their hypothesis seemed reasonable too.

            “A 2009 survey of the most leading criminologists in the country from found that the overwhelming majority did not believe that the death penalty is a proven deterrent to homicide. Eighty-eight percent of the country’s top criminologists do not believe the death penalty acts as a deterrent to homicide, according to a new study published in the Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology and authored by Professor Michael Radelet, Chair of the Department of Sociology at the University of Colorado-Boulder, and Traci Lacock, also at Boulder.

            “Similarly, 87% of the expert criminologists believe that abolition of the death penalty would not have any significant effect on murder rates. In addition, 75% of the respondents agree that “debates about the death penalty distract Congress and state legislatures from focusing on real solutions to crime problems.”

            “The survey relied on questionnaires completed by the most pre-eminent criminologists in the country, including Fellows in the American Society of Criminology; winners of the American Society of Criminology’s prestigious Southerland Award; and recent presidents of the American Society of Criminology. Respondents were not asked for their personal opinion about the death penalty, but instead to answer on the basis of their understandings of the empirical research.

            You really like to fall back on expert opinion, don’t you? It’s laughable how often that shuts off debate amongst the uncritical.

            Your high percentages of “experts” in these spurious disciplines are not really persuasive to me. People should learn to place a healthy dose of skepticism in the studies of sociologists & criminologists. And they are biased against the death penalty despite their protestations to the contrary.

            This is one of the great evils of our times — the Gnostic fallacy — that through the mediation of so-called experts our society will reach perfection here on Earth. Nothing could be further from the truth. There do exist real experts in the world. But in those areas of study, unless opinion is carefully hedged, it should all be taken with a large grain of salt.

            I don’t believe them merely because they are “experts” any more than I believe those researchers who claim that crime was reduced because all the violent criminals were winnowed out over time. (It’s a provocative hypothesis all the same.)

            Notice, though, that the study I mentioned was not claiming anything about the deterrence value upon other would-be criminals. It has more to do with Q’s observation that a deceased cutthroat cannot continue cutting throats. I failed to notice that so it was actually a non-sequitur on my part. My bad.

            Bottom line, you can believe whatever counter-intuitive thing you want on the subject. It won’t keep me from believing that execution would have a strong deterrent value.

            I’ve read that also in that same book. Let’s be honest here, though. Poverty & drug-addiction don’t cause crime. Criminals are born into families of low IQ, low impulse-control parents who are members of dysfunctional subcultures.

            The empirical evidence on which the experts gave their judgement. They didn’t give their judgement on the basis of their opinions, which is what you are doing.

            So they might absolutely love the idea of frying someone but they’d still have to bend to the evidence showing that the prior awareness of the death penalty doesn’t stop people killing. Because when people kill they have other things on their mind. And they don’t expect to be caught.

            And given how many countries don’t have the death penalty, there is scope for comparison. And within countries there’s evidence from before and after the death penalty was abolished – or revived. That’s what evidence means.

    I am about 2/3 of the way through the book I wrote you about and the master plan that is being executed by the global powers is becoming very apparent to me. The solution to the takeover is simple and you will have to take my word for it until you invest time into reading the book.

    The solution that will collapse the financial takeover?

    Secure the border, period. Stop the illicit trades. Those trades are keeping the global financial system afloat.

    In the Shadows of a Presidency by Daniel Estulin

    Assuming that this author is accurate with his reporting, Trump’s overall plan becomes clear. It is to shutdown the power and financial wherewithal of the globalists and as he says, Make America First.

      Thank you for re-posting the title because I still need to order it! I do want to believe. I want to believe that someone wants to do something good for America and Americans. Not serving another agenda. I am in a love/hate relationship with Trump right now but sifting through the disinformation is almost impossible. So it’s hard to know what to believe and in that way they, the globalists the elite whatever, they have us right where they need us to be. Wouldn’t it be amazing if he came right out on national television and told us exactly what is happening and cut through the BS? I don’t want to hear political gobbledy-gook anymore.

        Trump’s problem is making an impact on a situation where he is a sneeze in a hurricane.

        He spends most of his time trying to outwit the PTB that are actually running things.

        The book will be an epiphany when you realize the extent of the Elite globalists and their breach into the US. Also, how close we are to American autonomy collapse. And the why of the situation.

        Here is a hint. The main source of the globalist financial movement is collusion between get this, American and British interests. Many other familiar names, Soros, Rockefeller, Mellon, Rothschild come forth also.

    Facts do not refute Trump derangement syndrome, which seems to be a type of religious fanaticism. Just as carbon dating of fossils is easily explained away by “The Bible is Literal Truth” Christian fanatics, who believe God created the heavens and earth in seven days, the deep state machinations, and; indeed, the Jussie Smollett hoax are easily explained away by the Progressive fanatics who believe the President is literally Hitler.

        Finca what did the Battle of Towton in the Wars of the Roses sound like, aside from the occassional blast of a hand cannon? The roar of 100,000 voices like at an Ohio State football game? The clink of metal striking metal? Thump of arrows penetrating sheets of steel armor then penetrating flesh fired from 150 yards away? The groans of 25000 Englishmen dying in 3 hours. Conservation between soldiers of both armies, who knew one another and were most likely related by blood. It must have been singular hand to hand combat when the formations collided in those snowy fields. Totally unlike the noisy impersonal battlefield of modern times.

    Gorbachev, Venezuela, World Colored Projects – Ideas are Flying in the Air

    I began to develop the theory of the world projects as a result of a meeting with Ioan Petru Culianu, but one of the motivations was the desire, despite everything, to do science, and not just science, but Russian science, which was created by Peter the First and Euler as a part of the Red World Project. It is hard now to explain why Euler was red, but in order to realize this fact as a fact, and not as a historical process, it is enough to look at the main protégé of Euler and the successor of his cause – a man who, in the words of Pushkin, was the first Russian university.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ioan_Petru_Culianu

    Unfortunately, at the moment when I started to get it, this brainchild of Peter the Great was bitten by HSE (Higher School of Economics), and with what the Whites are trying to recreate in Nizhny Novgorod, I have no contacts. And when I say Red and White, I do not mean the civil war in Russia, I mean the Red and White roses in the 15th century crypto-religious war in England, to which Marx and Lenin joined in the British Library.

    The Red Welsh Dragon spawned by Pierre Abelard and Arnold of Brescia, whose works explain the Communist Manifesto and Marx Capital, and not vice versa, as was the case 30 years ago. The way of understanding the world around us, which is given to us in sensations that are not too pleasant, changes as soon as the Maya of materialism begins to subside and religious consciousness moves to the fore.

    clker.com/cliparts/U/C/s/5/g/C/welsh-red-dragon-hi.png

    And in this regard, I cannot fail to notice that white academics in Nizhny Novgorod, trying to recreate the Academy of Sciences, absolutely do not understand that for historical reasons, science in Russia can only be Red, and White science will inevitably speak English simply because that Black speaks German.

    And history is important, and in my opinion it is Clio who is the mother of all sciences.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clio

    For example, it is impossible to understand what is happening now in Venezuela, not knowing that 40 miles from Caracas is a German colony founded by refugees from Baden, who in 1848 became the center of the revolutionary movement ruthlessly suppressed by Prussia and the Russian Empire, which paid for its participation in this suppression by defeat in the Crimea, and the Margrave of Baden was founded in the 12th century as a stronghold of those who later became Red and White against the Black world project, which was already raging in Europe.

    And all this has a direct bearing on this interview with Andrei Fursov, which I strongly recommend to compare with this post, if you want to understand what I am going to write in the next.

    Andrei Fursov: Who recruited Gorbachev in his childhood.

        Add on

        Gun violence black males and crazy people that happen to get guns In spite of gun control laws, like the Aurora shooting. Guns laws do nothing to prevent violence. They do however take away guns from the folks that will prevent a coup d’etat in this country.

        Most of the children(separated from their families) were actually separated from the coyotes that smuggled them across the border. If it wasn’t for the goodness of the border folks, these kids would be homeless.

        And snowing in Las Vegas. The climate IS changing, for whatever reason and the puny Paris type political takeover ploys will not change one thing. Put money into adaptation and people movement.

        Healthcare. ACA is failing, Medicare for all will break the bank, costs are too high because there is no real competition, the DC crowd cannot come up with a solution, maybe there is no solution. Americans dying, fat chance, the ER Is open for everyone, look up Emtala.

Why do you hold onto it like a blind squirrel does an acorn? Dirk Diggler is the same. Hates electric cars. So with the competition, we have now in healthcare kept prices down? No. You talk in circles and make no sense. Medicare for all is the ONLY system that won’t break the bank. Finally, you think building a wall will cure the country’s ills and you think I have the wrong priorities? Are you fucking shitting me? I’m talking gun violence, healthcare, immigration policy and you say wall. I say climate change may pose an existential threat and you say wall. I say the drugs from the pharma companies are far more dangerous than any illegal drug and I have the stats to prove it and you say wall. You’re a 2-year-old masquerading as an adult.

    A good faith message to the white Christians:

    Trump is not the “Deliverer” sent by God to deliver us from the “New World Order” and the “Globalists”. Trump is a real estate developer, casino operator, and a Reality TV show host with a gargantuan ego limited vocabulary and who doesn’t read. So it’s not a test of your faith in God to hold Trump accountable. It’s ok to hold Trump accountable.

    Germans were in South America in the 16th century with the Pizarro brothers == brh

    The biggest mystery of Soviet Perestroika and the fall of the Berlin Wall was that Gorbachev, being a greedy and cowardly man, receiving money from the British and Americans, how could he afford to disobey Thatcher and Bush and allow Germany to unite?

    Moreover, Bush personally called him and spoke harshly – do not dare to unite Germany, Thatcher called him and said in no case we will go along with Germany unification.

    Moreover, Gorbachev understood that in the conditions of his rivalry with Yeltsin, the Anglo Saxons would easily change their favorite horse in Russia.

    What did the Germans have on Gorbachev that he disobeyed his senior in rank?

    The fact is that when the Germans occupied the Stavropol and Krasnodar Territories, the German “feld gendarmerie” – these are people who went in civilian clothes and created an agent network – they had a special program for children 12 – 16 years old – this is how old Gorbachev was during his life in occupied Stavropol.

    Highlights of the bill:

    $1.375 billion for 55 miles of bollard fencing along the southern border and Rio Grande Valley of Texas;

    Funding for 40,520 ICE detention beds by the end of the fiscal year, a reduction from the current 49,060;

    $415 million for enhanced medical support, transportation, food and clothing for migrants who are in detention centers;

    $900 million for enhanced inspections at ports of entry, new technology, opioid detection and customs officers;

    Funding for a new Coast Guard Polar Security Cutter;

    A 1.9 percent pay raise for federal civilian workers (overriding President Trump’s order to deny them a pay raise);

    $100 million for border security technology between the ports on U.S. southern and northern borders, such as mobile surveillance capability and innovative towers (surveillance towers that are able to differentiate between people and vehicles and whether they’re carrying weapons or drugs)

    $564 million for non-intrusive inspection equipment at land ports of entry to scan vehicles entering the U.S. for narcotics and other contraband;

    $563.4 million to hire new immigration judges to reduce the backlog of cases;

    $527.6 million to support the U.S. Strategy for Engagement in Central America, a program focused on addressing the causes of migration of undocumented Central Americans to the U.S.;

    $191 million for new infrastructure at the Calexico land port of entry;

    $112.6 million for aircraft and sensor systems, including $86 million for 3 additional multi-role enforcement aircraft;

    $14.5 million for integrated coastal interceptor vessels for patrolling U.S. maritime borders; and

    $76.9 million for countering opioids with detection equipment and staffing at international mail facilities.

    What it does NOT include:

    Back pay for federal contractors affected by the shutdown;

    An extension of the Violence Against Women Act (though it does include nearly $500 million in grant money for VAWA programs);

    No increase in total fencing money compared to fiscal year 2018 (the appropriation is $1.375 billion);

    Funding can’t be used for any concrete wall or other Trump wall prototypes. Only “existing technologies” for fencing or barriers can be used.

    Much of this seems nebulous to me, this last line above and the first line of what’s in the bill on top. Is that fencing for Texas only? Can anybody clarify? No, I don’t want to look up the bill.

    That $86 million could fund about three Apaches?

    A half billion for more immigration judges? Please! When the fuck does it end!? That’s about 15 more Apaches.

    That Polar Security Cutter will help keep out illegal Eskimos, so that’s good. Maybe some Russkies.

    Let’s put up some igloos with ICE detention beds. We now have funding for about 40,000 down south. Food, translators, lawyers, challenges in court, etc.

    What a pitiful, sorrowful, clusterfuck of a mess. Put up some wall, fly the Apaches, stop being soft and save the nation.

        Apaches in Mexico:

        Most Americans today believe the Apache rein of terror ended with the surrender of Geronimo and Naiche and their 20 some followers: warriors, women, and children, nearly all close relatives.

        But almost 4 decades later, the Chiricahua war against alien invaders continued sporadically.

        In 1924, while Hollywood was still pumping out silent Cowboy and Indian westerns, an Apache raiding party left the safety of the Sierra Madre and rode north to the Animas Mountains of Southwestern New Mexico. This raiding party consisted of perhaps a dozen warriors and a woman on a mule dragging a travois.

        To make it difficult for their enemies to determine what direction they were headed, the Apaches had tied buckskin on the hooves of their mounts.

        By chance, they came across Frank Fisher, a local cowboy and some-time prospector. They easily killed him and stole his gun and mule. It wasn’t long before another ranch hand discovered the body and sounded the alarm. “The Apaches Are Back!”
        No one had to explain to the local ranchers, miners, and town folks what this meant.
