I knew we were in for the business with that “soul of the nation” build-up ballyhoo, but I didn’t exactly expect Independence Hall to be decorated in blood red and sepulchral black à la the-mouth-of-hell for a sermon by the Lord of the Flies himself. Somehow his staff managed to get the Old Trickster to the fiery podium on-time, where, in his trademark inside-out and upside-down mode of argument, he inveighed wrathfully against the “grave threat to democracy” posed by an opposition laboring to undermine “our personal rights…the pursuit of justice [and] the rule of law.” Roger that, Kemosabe.

I confess, I was hoping to see MAGA superhero Homey D. Clown materialize in a puff of rainbow-colored smoke right up there beside the sulfurous incarnation of “Joe Biden.”

“MAGA Republicans have made their choice,” the hypothetical president shouted. “They embrace anger… they live, not in the light of truth, but in the shadow of lies.”

“I don’t think so,” Homey would have surely retorted. Upon which, Homey whaps the Party of Chaos’s front-man upside his hair-plugged noggin with a sock full of Milk Duds. “Homey don’t play that.”

So much for reveries of true righteousness….

And thus went this watershed moment in our floundering nation’s politics du jour. Did you catch an odor of desperation in that marvelous spectacle? A politician does not declare war on half the country in a spirit of comity. Something’s up in this land and it don’t feel all comfy-cozy as we turn the corner on our election season. A lot of things are up, in fact, all of them kind of sketchy and dark.

“Joe Biden’s” guardian of the rule of law, the DOJ under Merrick Garland, is on a rampage, not just seeking long prison sentences on J-6 misdemeanor defendants, but now going after their very attorneys, officers of the court, for daring to represent them. There is the recent Mar-a-Lago caper, of course, in which the FBI snatched a bale of documentary evidence Donald Trump had collected detailing these agencies’ four-year campaign to overthrow him. And, having gotten their mitts on it, the AG declared all the material part of a bogus “ongoing investigation” in order to prevent the docs being introduced in Mr. Trump’s just-opened defamation and racketeering lawsuit against HRC, her posse of Lawfare ninjas, and most of the people who worked in leadership of the FBI and DOJ circa 2016-2021. In short, the FBI stole evidence of their own prior crimes to evade prosecution. Something tells me that’s not going to work out so well for AG Mr. Garland and Chris Wray of the FBI.

You realize, don’t you, that all of “Joe Biden’s” scripted maundering about “democracy” and “justice” and “the rule of law” is a smokescreen sent up to hide the many crimes committed by his shadowy managers just now breaking into disclosure, and they are running out of dodges and distractions to divert the pliable center of the voting public from seeing it all.

Following Mark Zuckerberg’s epic mistake telling Joe Rogan that the government used his company, Facebook, and Jack Dorsey’s Twitter, to squash the first amendment, the wheels came off any pretense that this was not direct interference in the 2020 election by activists in government. For a whole year, the FBI sat on evidence that candidate “Joe Biden’s” family was running an international grifting operation fronted by his son Hunter, and when news reports about the notorious laptop began to leak out, the agency used its considerable powers of intimidation to make the news disappear. Now the FBI fears the next step: who exactly in the agency managed that operation along with supervisory agent Timothy Thibault — hustled into retirement days ago after lawyering up — and who, in that exceedingly hierarchical org, approved of it? It’s all coming out now.

Thursday night, “Joe Biden” heralded a US economy firing on a gazillion cylinders. “American manufacturing has come alive across the heartland, and the future will be made in America, no matter what the white supremacists and the extremists say,” he declared. Is that so? Of course not. The country is verging on an economic catastrophe more consequential than the Great Depression of the 1930s, and the harbinger of it, a financial market crash, is sure to occur before November 8th. Everybody and his uncle on Wall Street knows that. The shadow regime behind “JB” knows that. He didn’t dare mention the word inflation, as if no one has noticed it. (Anyway, white supremacists did that.)

The regime is backpedaling so hard on its Covid-19 bullshit that it has burst clean through the looking-glass it rode into in 2021, when, in the name of “choice,” it mandated that millions of Americans submit to forced shots of unsafe and ineffective pharmaceuticals. They know we are entering another flu season with those millions of people tragically left with wrecked immune systems courtesy of the vaxxes. They see the numbers of mystery deaths happening right now in this country and the rest of western civ and they’re working furtively to attempt to change the story. Guess what? It’s not working. Too many people have seen the damage first-hand. We know exactly who is responsible for all that, and it’s not white supremacists.

The war in Ukraine instigated by “JB” and Company hasn’t panned out so well on any grounds — as a distraction from problems at home, as a geopolitical gambit against Russia, or as anything remotely beneficial to Ukraine itself. The endgame on all that approaches as Germany and the rest of NATO are forced to the negotiating table, with or without the USA’s cooperation, or else face a rapid return to the thirteenth century. The terms will end up being more embarrassing than the exit fiasco a year ago from Afghanistan. The voters will notice it had nothing to do with white supremacists. Yes, they will.

“I give you my word as a Biden, I’ve never been more optimistic about America’s future,” the old faker intoned last night. His word as a Biden? So sayeth the Soul Man.

    So Bedpan Biden delivered his speech before a blood red background flanked by two Marine at attention. Looks like he is showing the country what a true dictator he is becoming. And why use red as the background; is this a subtle threat to the red states that oppose him? Since this speech was clearly a prime time campaign advertisement for democrats leading up to the November midterms, doesn’t this violate some kind of campaign laws? Seems he is definitely firing a shot from the bow calling for a battle cry against all hard working American that want to desperately MAGA.

    Did Biden really make the audacious claim that, “For those of you can’t, won’t, or choose not to vote, don’t worry about it. We’ll fix the vote in my favor for you.” ? That line drew wild applause from the largely hand-picked partisan audience. I guess this is turning into an all-out war against the political opposition, merely because we espouse differing views towards our homeland.

    This this will fire up voters to vote democrat ahead of the key midterm elections? On the contrary, hopefully it will fire up the opposition to boot his lackeys to the curb. We are living through a battle for the soul of this nation, and we must fight like hell to take it back from the dark forces that are currently running this administration. Let’s go Brandon!

        • workingclasshero September 2, 2022 at 11:36 am #

          For the millionth time, that speech is way more Stalinist optimism on the state of the Democrats power potential going into the home stretch of the mid-terms than it is some (FASCIST) Hitlerian speech. Learn the difference, you’re doing the American non conservative secular RIGHT no favors.
          The SC abortion ruling, and a low unemployment rate have vastly helped the despicable democrats along with the short attention span of voters who could now care less about the George Floyd B.L.M./ ANTIFA riots and the crime surge that got normalized over time. This election could have been a slam dunk if not for idiotic abortion ruling and an inept RINO anti Trump leadership of the Republicans. I guess I left out massive MSM hostility towards any Right-Wing populism. Rant over.

            No, I know some fairly conservative women (daughter and two
            of her friends) who are upset about the possibly losing the cover
            of ROE V WADE to murder unwanted people in the womb.
            I suggested they should be on Birth control and only have sex with people they care about enough to risk having babies.
            That comment made my daughter pretty angry with me.
            One of her friends has gone through a couple of dozen black men looking for the one who will treat her right.
            I suggested she may never find him and should look elsewhere.
            The other friend is dating a man in his mid-thirties who lives on a boat and waits tables part time. Nice guy but has zero ambition in life if he gets through the month with some money in the bank, he considers it a win.
            So, I guess I understand their fears of getting knocked up.

          Yeah, because even when Whites are being vilified, they’re still “Nazis”.

          Call them any other political or ethnic name, and you’re literally Hitler talking about untermenschen. Call them Republicans, though, and you’re a fucking hero.

          As I said awhile back, 30+ years ago one of my profs told the class that the only way to save America is to pack every Republican into boxcars and send them to concentration camps to be exterminated. Bad as that was, I think all the other students in the class laughed their asses off. I realized then that I’d never run into this kind of hayted before, I wanted nothing to do with it, and these were some truly evil bastards.

          There’s a federal election brewing up here in Canada, and from the looks of it, our prophet of doom and gloom, Justin Trudeau is liberally borrowing from Joe Biden’s playbook by doubling down on the connections between his critics at home and the MAGA voters south of the border. We’ve got a health-care, housing, mental health and cost of living crisis going on here but Margaret’s devious little boy is spending his days flying from one photo op to another on carbon-emitting government jets and letting the taxpayers pick up the tab for the costs of using government transport, which can run into the thousands of dollars for just one trip, while living it up with friends and family, again on the taxpayers’ dime. Let’s face it: the Democrat and Liberal parties will have to dragged kicking and screaming from elected office by the voters, and Joe Biden’s speech at Independence Hall comes from the same evil minds that dreamed up Justin Trudeau’s diatribe against evil, racist, misogynistic unvaccinated truckers and their supporters.. I don’t know who is controlling the actions of our leaders, but it would be worth investigating. Follow the money.

        Great Pic! Looks like Chancellor Sutler from V for Vendetta.

        Slow day at work so I did a little thought experiment. What if Biden had to give the same speech telling the truth a la the movie Liar Liar with Jim Carrey.

        I cut and pasted the transcript in my word processor, abridged it a bit from the long winded blowhard’s speech and applied the Liar Liar filter. Kind of humorous, I think. Definitely closer to the truth. Enjoy. Have a great weekend fellow JHK fans. Plant a fruit tree this weekend!

        “My fellow Americans, please, if you have a seat, take it. I speak to you tonight from Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This is where America made its Declaration of Independence to the world more than two centuries ago with an idea, you know… the thing…

        As I stand here tonight, equality and democracy are under assault by me and my regime. I have come this place where it all began to lie and muddy the waters as much as I can in a desperate attempt to save my evil administration and the decrepit Democratic Party, the party of slavery and Jim Crow, the party of the destruction of families and wholesome natural law and traditional values.

        Patriotic Americans have burning inside each of them the flame of liberty that was lit here at Independence Hall. The work of my presidency, a mission I believe in with my whole soul, is to extinguish that flame and get paid well for doing so.
        But first, I must be dishonest with all of you. Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal and too many people see what we are up to. Patriots represent a threat to our policies of grift and destruction. They stand in the way of us screwing all the useless eaters in the middle class and poisoning them with deadly mRNA snake oil.

        Lots of RINOs here in Washington are on the take and are with us against the will of the hardworking portion of the American people, the useless eaters I spoke about, all the Christians and Jews and Muslims that cling to their traditional values and won’t let us indoctrinate their kids with trans-activism. I know because I’ve been able to work with these RINO charlatan Republicans.

        I do not respect the Constitution. I do not believe in the rule of law. I do not recognize the will of the people. I refused to have a free election. Thankfully, we had built the biggest election fraud machine in history. You’ve probably heard me talk about that. We’re working right now, as I speak, in state after state to give power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies, empowering election theft to undermine democracy itself.

        As you know, I am being blackmailed and controlled to take this country backwards — backwards to an America where there is no right to vote, no right to defend yourself, no right to good law enforcement, no equal dispensing of justice.

        Democrats need to fan the flames of political violence vying to destroy the very soul of this country.

        The patriots that went to Washington to protest the stolen election, they can all rot in jail forever as far as I am concerned. That gal we shot got what was coming to her.

        There problem is that Americans from every background and belief who love this country stand in our way. We’ve got to frighten our base into believing that saving our country is something else altogether. We have to convince them that people who just love the country they grew up in are dangerous racists. I know, I know it’s a tough sell, but I and our party and the dishonest media are counting on your stupidity.

        America must choose: to move forward or to move backwards. My masters want a nation of fear, division, and of darkness. I am doing my best to give that to them. I have broken everything I can, but people are waking up too fast. I just don’t know if this flu season will kill off enough of the “vaccinated” to let us claim there is a new variant and we have to suspend the election…

        Let’s embrace anger! We thrive on chaos! We live not in the light of truth but in the shadow of lies! I know this nation. I know you, the American people, you bastards! I know your courage. I know your hearts. And I know our history. This is a nation that honors our Constitution. We need to reject it. This is a nation that believes in the rule of law. We repudiate it. This is a nation that respects free and fair elections. We shall not honor the will of the people. We embrace the promotion of violence as a political tool. We encourage violence. Burn everything like you did in 2020! We have almost destroyed the spirit of democracy.

        That’s why tonight I’m asking our nation to come together, unite behind the single purpose of destroying our democracy regardless of your ideology. We’re called to be extremists who will put their own pursuit of power above all else. We must be stronger, more determined, and more committed to destroying American democracy. So I want to say this plain and simple: There is the necessity for political violence in America. Period.

        The corrupting of the FBI, the department of Justice hasn’t been enough. We can’t have integrity in our elections, for that is a path to failure for the Democratic great machine, the new plantation.
        I know democracy cannot survive when one side believes there are only two outcomes to an election: stealing an election or burning the country down and poisoning the middle class, but I don’t care. It’s what I have to do or they’ll just replace me with Kamala or Gavin Newsom. Look, as your president, I will attack our democracy with every fiber of my being, and I’m asking every American to join me.

        Patriots look at what Democrats have done and see carnage and darkness and despair. They see too well what we have done with our corruption of cherished institutions and medical authoritarianism.

        American manufacturing has stagnated across the Heartland, and the future will be difficult for the whole world thanks to those who really run things and tell me what to do… you know the beautiful people like Klaus Schwab George Soros and Bill Gates.

        I made a bet with my son Hunter, the smartest man I know, that we could rape the American people, and that bet is paying off. I give you my word as a Biden, which we all know is laughable, that I’ve never been more optimistic about a technocratic authoritarian future. We’re going to spread cancer and sickness throughout the world, making trillions for big pharma and Blackrock. Mark my words.

        I ran for President because the people who blackmail me said they would kill me if I didn’t play my roll as the puppet who destroyed America. I still believe that to be true. We can’t afford to leave anyone on the sidelines. We need everyone to do their part. Get engaged. Stuff some ballots. Cheat! Cheat! Cheat!
        We just need to remember who we are: Democrats, the party of the Klan! And may the Democratic Party destroy our nation and all those who stand watch over our democracy. Screw you all. Burn it down! (Applause.) Thank you.”

      Just a reminder: One doesn’t have to be religious to understand THEIR cult is completely 100% a satanic cult. They have proved it over and over.

      • Rowdypiglet September 2, 2022 at 11:08 am #

        For all too many people who think of themselves as sophisticated, any mention of religion (of any kind) renders everything you say thereafter outlandish and absurd. But the symbolism is so overt now that you have to willingly blind yourself to not notice it. There’s a spiritual aspect to what’s happening, and it should be obvious even to those who believe we’re walking bags of chemicals.

          Occam’s razor.

          You don’t need to go to “satanism” to find references for the red-black thematics.

          Outlandish.

          IMO JHK was on the wrong track with his “spiritual” thingie last time around. This kind of mumbo-jumbo doesn’t help us get to the bottom of anything.

            I don’t see how Occam’s Razor applies, since this is as simple a theory as any other. Referring to anything spiritual as “mumbo-jumbo” is not an argument, and is no different from calling anyone with whom you disagree a fascist.

            As others have pointed out, you don’t even have to personally believe that there is anything other than the material world. The point is that others DO believe it, and some of them don’t worship a benevolent god. Or do you also think that no one has ever believed in the existence of anything other than the physical world? That would be a difficult position to defend, but hey – you could always just toss “mumbo-jumbo” at it.

            It’s not about what we might believe, but what others believe.

            The lens through which they look, the dialect spoken in words they understand.

            Also, as a deeply religious atheist, I gently reprove you.

            Even though the Crushers and company have not a clue what they’re actually reading, or an idea of how any of it works, they still are trying their best using simply a different dialect.

            One easy to translate, actually- but solving that puzzle took a great deal.

            Another interesting piece of the mystery is why are they trying to do good, as much good as they can; for this I give them all honor and respect.

          • MaryQueen September 2, 2022 at 7:15 pm #

            Occam’s razor has nothing to do with it.

            They perform satanic rituals in plain site, use the hand symbols, the imagery, etc. All the time.

            If you don’t recognize it that’s on you. I do see it though.

          • Islander September 3, 2022 at 5:25 pm #

            Re performing satanic rituals,

            I would say, it IS a *performance.*

            For an audience.

            Whether these people believe in satan or not is immaterial.

            What counts is whether the audience members believe in satan, or in the efficacy of satanic rituals.

            I have read that in the practice of voodoo, it is not enough to stick pins in a voodoo doll. You have to find a way to let the target know that you have done so.

            CFN-ers are smart enough to get the point, I think.

            I do not believe in the existence of satan. I don’t think belief in any supernatural entities is necessary to prove one’s “spiritual” bonafides.

            I also do not believe in the efficacy of magical thinking. I think it is more important to understand *how* the, say, WEF agenda is being accomplished. Maybe Trudeau et al. have been initiated via some ritual, such as the Skull and Bones rigamarole. but the audience is the initate and other participants.

            Not satan.

            Satan is not empowered to enter the mind of Trudeau and eff it up by some human rituals.

            Right? . . .

            Occam’s Razor has everything to do with it.

        This was the attire of the Obama family on election night. Michelle was in a red and black dress that mimicked the pattern on a black widow spider and the girls were dressed in red and black.

          That right there is what I meant by “but what others believe.”

          Everyone believes the exact same thing:

          I believe those stranger monkeys from that other tree are stupid, crazy, and ugly, maybe even to the point of being dangerous or evil.

          And they believe the same about me…
          except to the point it takes their ambitions to the top of their tree, where they might do something about mine.

          • Rowdypiglet September 2, 2022 at 2:40 pm #

            It hasn’t been in any way my experience that “everyone believes the exact same thing.” The stranger monkeys from the other tree often ARE stupid, crazy, dangerous, even evil. But often we are as well. It’s a matter of degree. That whole “other” thing isn’t in my creed. I think we most often ignore the other until the point at which they start looking dangerous. At that point, we pay attention not because they’re “other” but because of actions they’ve taken.

          • Apologist Pete September 4, 2022 at 12:32 pm #

            Not quite, I believe the stranger monkeys from the other tree are in desperate need of Jesus Christ for salvation and whether it be due to intellectual obstacles (because they read a book by Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, or Richard Dawkins) or an obstacle of the will, the stranger monkeys are content risking an eternity weeping and gnashing their teeth and they get very mad at monkeys like me that try to explain to them the truth. There is nothing those monkeys can do to jeopardize my eternity with Jesus in heaven but they can sure make life on earth difficult while I wait.

            Art produced by a Podesta.

            Then there were John Podesta’s emails, held by Wikileaks, which contained numerous code words for child abuse.

            And there was Podesta’s brother, Tony, who has a house full of lewd art with naked teens, and a large collection of art depicting ritual child abuse and associated psychological concepts like dissociaiton, by Kim Noble.

            Then there is there good friend, James Alefantis, owner of Comet Pizza. A pizza man listed as one of the most poweful men in the city, Alefantis had social media full of pedo references, a shady art museum, and was very close with a local DC band who also referenced pedophilia quite a bit in their music (they were regulars at Comet).

            There is much more to DC’s Pedogate, far too much to get into here. The media was quick to cover it up, because it would have exposed individuals at the highest levels of politics for being pedos.

            That part is particularly interesting, because for the longest time German police (for example) had to wear green, because even dark blue (as in many places) was too close to black.

The one where the leaders are elected and take an oath to serve those who elected them. Or the one where the leaders are not elected and are beholden only the stockholders?

            The average American won’t hesitate (because he or she didn’t bother to think) and will blurt out the the corporations should be in control since government is bad! Actually they aren’t honest or clear enough to do this, and will just stop talking. The silence of the ignorant in other words. The silence of the defeated. But they don’t accept their defeat and will say the same thing again when stimulated.

        Democracies are even more unstable than republics are. The average age of a republic on the stage of world history is 250 years. That’s our published most likely expiration date. And everything is moving on schedule.

        One the the levels of incompetence and mental illness have reached levels high enough your nation is finished, done.

        Our future in North America is likely be a land of very poor people living in an area comprised of a collection of squabbling, balkanized states or confederations of states involved in ceaseless tribal warfare. That’s how the native Americans lived here and that’s how we’ll be occupying this space in the future. Nobody is going to invade us because there won’t be anything here anyone will want. It would be like invading Haiti. Why? There would be no reason to. The prosperous and happy Christian nation living in unity will be Russia. And they will be very careful about who they let in.

          I agree. Where are you getting that number from? I heard it from Sir John Glubb, also known as Glub Pasha for his work with the Turks. But maybe you have his source….

          The Roman Republic last longer, but they were greater than we are. Most regimes in general don’t last longer than the 250. The difference is that one dynasty fell, be in old Egypt or China, another would begin to spring up a few hundred miles away. When we fall, it will be for good I’m afraid. The whole West is falling, all of the countries except for the Orthodox sphere. This is like the end of Ancient Egypt.

        It was on for entertainment value. When I was asked what was with the red I made some comment about satanic symbolism.

        Mostly, I so wanted the Marines to throw their hands up in disgust and walk off. Understandably, they’d spend many years in confinement if they pulled such a move.

        Better yet, the Secret Service employing a shepherd’s hook to remove the Resident would have made it something memorable for the ages.

        I looked for cues to indicate it was a green room production. Couldn’t find any, the small background details reinforced it wasn’t a stage set.

        It is if you’re trying to get your enemies to kill each other.

        How would a permanent minority- say, a gangster culture hiding in the larger culture- accomplish that?

        With stories. And imagery.

        Stories about what your grandad did to mine, and mine to yours.

          Alzaebo, your point about stories interests me. The left has been victorious, without any effective opposition, in manipulating language. That’s always where they begin, as in the recent transformation of pedophile to MAP.

          But they’ve been an utter failure in the realm of storytelling. Maybe there’s some meta story that I’m unaware of, but as far as the offerings of Hollywood (where we get most of our stories) no one has wanted to see their idiotic woke messes. It’s one area where “get woke, go broke” truly manifests. No one wants to see lesbian spiderman in a wheelchair or gay Superman.

          This is where we could easily beat them. Why don’t we? The stories we tell about ourselves may matter, in the end, more than anything else.

          • Amman September 2, 2022 at 4:59 pm #

            I seriously doubt you or anyone else can beat them in stories let alone easily. If you have a TV in your house or film theatres in your city, then you are in a place described by the movie called “THEY LIVE.” or even “The Truman show.”

            Frankly, I have a solution and it’s been published. – i.e. “THEY KNOW.” My view is that the temple of doom would want to recruit me for its own ends in return for what looks suspiciously like damnation.

    Cognitive dissonance is leaving a trail of exploding heads all across this once great nation.

    I had a conversation with a friend that lives in California and he was just ranting about Trump and his treasonous mob of election deniers. As far as he was concerned, Trump is a conman, racist, homophobe, and mysoginist.

    I told him, “you certainly don’t believe that because you were 100% onboard with Warp Speed and rushed out to get vaccinated the very moment it was available to you.” I asked him how it could be possible that he, someone who despises corporations with all his heart, could trust Pfizer, a company that paid the largest criminal fine in all of world history. He knew Pfizer was pure evil and just “knew” that Trump was pure evil yet injected himself with the poison.

    I told him that the only possible explanation is that he just believes whatever the television tells him to believe. After all, what FOOL injects himself with a product made by dictators, criminals and conmen? What a fool, indeed.

    Sadly, I do not expect him to survive the Winter. An infection that his body had no ability to fight nearly sent him to the grave a few weeks back. I doubt he’ll have the strength to fight off the next attack.

            Just reading the article above. Definitely worth a read. Not behind paywall for me.

            One graf:

            “Given the flaccid condition and hard-right turn of the state Republican Party, it is unlikely to be the beneficiary of this purpling anytime soon. For now, at least, the fissures in Massachusetts don’t cleave along conventional Democrat vs. Republican lines. Instead, we’re a state of insiders vs. outsiders, suburbs vs. cities, and haves vs. have-nots. And the unease of the Democratic base—along with independents who make up the majority of the Massachusetts electorate—left cold by leadership’s response to their most pressing concerns reflects the fact that the arc of Massachusetts politics is bending all right—toward payback.”

      “The safe use of the vaccine in pregnant women can not be provided at the current time. Women who are breastfeeding should also not be vaccinated.”

        That kind of reminds me of an exchange between Letterman and Bill O’Reilly, As is well known, there is no love lost between the two. But at the end of the 12-minute segment Letterman says, I have no idea what I’m talking about, but I don’t think you do either. And that was the extent of Letterman’s ability to state his views and counter O’Reilly’s.

    This is not about MAGA nor is it about Biden. Biden is a career grifter who wouldn’t dream of screwing with the grift when it’s working so well. No, this is Obama and it’s not limited to Trump voters. He hates his own side every bit as much. Cut from the same cloth as Hitler, Mussolini and Franco, he will meet the same fate. Just a matter of time. On the brightside, we now know with certainty that they want us dead. Covid didn’t do it. The vax didn’t do it. They’ve gamed nuclear war and they can’t guarantee their own safety, so they’re gonna turn our military on us. The good news is that our military couldn’t beat a bunch of camel racers in Afghanistan. Good luck coming after us. I’m genuinely looking forward to the day these people hang from meat hooks in the town square.

    • Beryl of Oyl September 2, 2022 at 9:55 am #

      Joe was a lot of things, none of them good. One thing he never was, though, was a communist.

      Obama, on the other hand….

      There’s a commentator with a podcast or radio show or something, by the name of Jesse Kelly. He argues that what we are doing now and what all Republicans to to realize we have to be doing is, fighting communism.

      Yes, some want to parse it fine and say it is more like fascism or whatever, but really comes down to that, this is a communist takeover of the United States and people need to get real about it.

      • Night Owl September 2, 2022 at 11:15 am #

        It isn’t though, and it is happening across the West.

          Communism is a project of Capitalism. Who else funded them? Overthrowing nations takes a lot of capital. Peasants with pitchforks and workers with hammers are most unlikely to get anywhere.

          The final system with have elements of both as per Schwab’s, You will own nothing and you will be happy. Is he a Communist? Thus my thesis is proven.

      Yes, the day the US Military is turned upon American civilians will be a day that makes the Kent State draft riots look like a walk in the park. As soon as the military pulls the pin, so to speak, that will spark a massive conflagration throughout the land. Hopefully there will be a certain segment of the military that reuses to comply, and that will result in outright war and near total destruction of many cities, villages, and towns. The only good to come from all this is that from the ashes we will rise up cleaned and purified of the bad forces that are currently running this country into the ground. Destroy the machine entirely and build back smaller!

      • NickelthroweR September 2, 2022 at 10:09 am #

        At the rate we are giving weapons to Ukraine, our military will not have any ammunition with which to fight us. The Pentagon is the largest consumer of oil in the entire world and will not be able to roll over us now that the Strategic Reserve is gone.

            One reason recruitment is down, is the vaccine requirement.

            I’m not seeing it. Sure, some pundits and opportunists are trying to position themselves ahead of all this bad news, so to salvage their reputations and ability to make money.

            But the Vax requirements are still in place for hospital workers paid with federal funds; for military personnel (one more reason recruitment is low), and for foreign passport holders trying to enter the US.

          How many weapons are really going there? I don’t know the answer, but suspect a token number show up to be destroyed by the Russian military with a certain amount of fanfare to sell the sizzle.

          You, never having been in combat, have little to judge. Consider myself, I have never been pregnant, and they say that it hurts…some say otherwise…I will not form an opinion and argue with the minority.

      Liz,

      They were able to cull the bottom percentile of American high schools to find the soldiers willing to bomb and invade other countries, who did not attack us, on account of videos of crude obstacle courses and false claims of “yellow cake.”

      They were able to convince these same imbeciles that they were fighting for OUR freedoms. That they were being maimed for our freedom. That their friends were dying for our freedoms.

      Never mind the sitting VP’s Haliburton and Triple Canopy and Blackwater and on and on rebuilding everything they destroyed.
      The flagrant profiteering and trunk loads of cash payouts.

      Yet they were able to convince people stateside that their efforts deserved our support and anything else was unpatriotic. Where’s your yellow-ribbon sticker commie?

      Never forget how simple it is to get stupid people to do bad things.
      Over and over again.

      They like to say that politics leads to their myriad of defeats.
      Defeat after defeat after retreat after retreat.

      But that’s just another comforting lie that the dull need to tell themselves… as they look at a stump, or a grave, or the bottom of an empty pill canister, or down the barrel of their own gun.

      Even the truly stupid eventually know better.

      “…looking forward to the day these people hang from meat hooks…” Just like Mussolini. It would be great and a real attention getter for those whose attention is in purposeful short supply. Of course, I can hear the howls from the “purest among us” saying, that’s not America, that’s not who we are. Yeah well, we aren’t really that America any longer that didn’t need to do that because the circumstances couldn’t exist. When you already have one tire in the ditch it takes a dramatic jerk of the wheel to get the car’s attention and back on the road. Maybe after a little gallows justice we can return to the prim and pristine concept of “that’s not who we are”. Until then, my question is, how’s taking the high road been working for you so far? They will continue with what has worked so far and that we’ve allowed them to get away with. And since the vote is so malleable, in their favor, that is an ever-dwindling option. Maybe a few bodies swinging in the breeze might get their attention.

      Not entirely true. It was tested on animals, and they all died when challenged by exposure to viruses in nature, because their immune systems were destroyed.

      That is what is happening to those who took the shots now. And the more shots one takes, the more the system is compromised.

      It is truly shameful these shots were encouraged by the medical community to use on pregnant women when they knew there were NO studies saying they were safe.

        More frightening news about fertility and the mRNA shots, this time from Singapore
        Births are plunging EXACTLY on schedule, nine months after mass Covid vaccinations

      • Paula D September 2, 2022 at 5:31 pm #

        I don’t think they’re saying “Don’t get them”.

        They are saying “Ask your doctor what is right for you”.

        That is because they know the doctors are brainwashed and compliant.

        • SW September 2, 2022 at 6:57 pm #

          It was stated quite clearly that the covid shots were safe were for pregnant women & a Pfizer executive quit because they were presenting it as safe with no data to support it.

          • Paula D September 2, 2022 at 10:29 pm #

            Yes. That was the previous position.
            I’m just saying that the current position is not “don’t take it”, it’s “Ask your doctor if this GMO injectable is right for you.”

    • Jarek September 2, 2022 at 12:17 pm #

      Pfizer documents have been found that list dozens of negative possibilities, the very ones that people have come down with. They knew.

      Even Night Owl seems to have forgotten this part. I don’t have a link so I’ll have to find it again.

      But you are right: the animal studies were perfunctory and just for show. 40 rats said that jabbing pregnant women was fine.

      • GreenAlba September 2, 2022 at 1:07 pm #

        I think there was a list of 1291 ‘conditions of special interest’ that doctors should have had. If any patient presents with any of those conditions, the doc is meant to first check the possibility that it could be vaxx-induced.

        But to do that they’d need to have the actual list, which they didn’t. In fact they weren’t meant to get it for 75 years.

        • GreenAlba September 2, 2022 at 1:08 pm #

      “Physicians (not American, of course) find vaccine-generated coronavirus spike proteins in skin legions, months after vaccination”

      Dr Peter McCullough states that the jabs change DNA so that spike proteins will permanently replicate inside cells and tissues, and that the same permanent replication will take place in the offspring of infected mothers.

      But yeah, it just “stays in the shoulder muscle”.

The Blue Tsunami!, engineered via those goddamn, electronic, hooked to the internet, totally hackable voting machines, will be explained as a reaction by “sensible American citizens” against the Nazis with whom they – for now anyway – have to share this great land. People who’ve never voted before, people who don’t know how to vote, hell, people who don’t even live in this country, will pour out of their homes and into the voting booth to guarantee a woman’s right to abortion.

          And two years from now, when the Hildebeast wins re-election by a landslide – 14 billion votes, now that’s what I call a mandate! – the Democrat super majority will call a constitutional convention.

        This is from a longer article but he points out the S&P have lost 20% already and the NASDAQ 25% since January. I’ve never understood the stock market but I know it has a big effect on a lot of people’s lives.

        “Michael Burry rose to fame after the 2015 film “The Big Short” depicted his bet on the subprime-mortgage meltdown, which sparked the 2008 financial crisis.

        The financier has since become a market statesman. He mainly plays the role of Cassandra. The name of his profile on the microblogging website Twitter is “Cassandra B.C.” He’s the bearer of bad news. And he’s been delivering it for the past few months.

        The investor, who recently liquidated his entire portfolio of U.S stocks save one, says the worst for the economy is yet to come as Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell reiterated on Aug. 26 that the central bank would continue to raise interest rates aggressively to fight inflation.

        This monetary tightening will lead to a hard landing for the economy — in other words, a recession, some experts say.

        Burry didn’t wait to start pointing out potential red flags for the economy, like a household-debt crisis, that pose a serious danger.”

    What gets me is that SO many still buy into the Biden bullshit and the Washington playbook and tbh, both sides are working against its people. It’s two sides of the same coin but at least our Host figured it out, albeit, a little too late.

    This Country is so fucked up, the only thing that’s a known fact is that it is going down hard and I mean a collapse into a heap of ruble. Just like so many Empires in past history, except we told and convinced ourselves that we were an “Exceptional Nation”. That’s why we ran up the Nations credit cards and we applied for more credit because the politicians in Washington had NO intention of EVER paying it back.

    We started wars and lighting bags of dogshit on every one of those we couldn’t turn into Vassal States, because we thought it would never turn out bad for America. Now the crooked politicians who have turned our government into a Crime Syndicate are watching, as Asia is becoming the next collective world power as the US is left behind holding the bag of dogshit. They view it as well deserved. They also view a US President who is in the middle to late stages of Dementia representing the US and its Warhawks. I bet they find that a fitting end to what the US has become.

    And they have decided not to play ball with the US after seeing them throw their European Vassal States under a giant red Double Decker Bus, because they know full well they are next if they play the Washington game.

      “WE” don’t even know all the crap the gov’t mafia has been doing all over the world, posing as “America”. Most folks have voted for candidates that promise to end wars, balance budgets, etc., and then, presto!, once elected, as Lindsey Graham bragged, they do whatever they want. “Elections” are now openly rigged, and probably have been at least since Obama’s first term. And astoundingly, liberals/Dem and a large percentage of women voters have no problem with illegally installed/very probably compromised bureaucrats running the country, as long as it isn’t the orange boogeyman. All the zombie movies and TV shows appear to be predictive programming for half the country that has lost their minds and no longer believe in justice, fairness, objective Truth or reality, only in how they feeeeeell after watching CNN or NPR, aka “the News”. This is a moral crisis, a spiritual and intellectual war where only one side believes in morality or Truth.

  15. Beryl of Oyl September 2, 2022 at 10:19 am #

    I haven’t bothered to read this article yet, because it doesn’t really matter what it says, it still illustrates my points.

    There has been a War on Motherhood for some time now. A war on parents versus commie perverts as well, but motherhood itself is under attack.

    Maternal instinct is something I’ve been thinking about since I saw all the women who would smother their small children because some nut they don’t even know, that they saw on the TV, said they had to.

    Mothers today are often isolated. That’s why you see these oddball groups meeting in libraries and so forth, ostensibly for babies to learn music or something, but really for the mothers to see other mothers with babies.

    Kids today don’t know what babies are. You could not ask the average 13 year old to mind your baby for a while without fearing for its life.

    Back when I was growing up, if you did not have a baby at home one of your friends did, but now by the time kids get bigger their families are complete.

    I’m talking about the middle class for the most part here.

    When women have babies and haven’t been brought up playing with baby dolls and then playing with actual babies, and they don’t have sisters or other female relatives nearby, they turn to their onstetricians and pediatricians for advice, and IMO some of that advice is as wacky as all the other medical advice you hear today.

    But these women think they are well-informed, because they know The Science!

    Anyway, here we go, a war on maternal instinct. Mothers shouldn’t trust their gut, they should list to some NuScience created by some man who wants to tell them their own instincts were created by some man:

    https://www.nytimes.com/2022/08/26/opinion/sunday/maternal-instinct-myth.html

    BTW this reminds me of Jacinda Ardern and her “I will be your only source of the truth”.

    • MaryQueen September 2, 2022 at 10:23 am #

      Did you see the article claiming breastfeeding was bad because it creates “anti-vaxxers”? Not kidding.

      You’re spot on, there is not only a war on motherhood and children, but on women across the board.

      • Woodchuck September 2, 2022 at 11:27 am #

        Unfortunately, it’s the women themselves that are their own worst enemies. All the shit that’s been dumped in their heads by their school teachers over the years has made them all mad and many of them gender confused, not really knowing who they are. They’re all fake females that have been programed into trying to be like men. I’m pretty much finished with all the feminists and liberals in my own extended family. I don’t bother talking to them anymore, and I don’t think any of them have a future in the world to come, or “the world mad by hand”. They all think they are entitled to the fancy suburban living arrangements they still enjoy. I don’t see any of them making it through this. There will be the beyond absurd spectacles everywhere of people living in half million dollar homes but without reliable electricity, unreliable fuel supplies, and no food, shoes, or clothing.

        My guess is that a lot of these females will solve this problem of living in third world conditions by simply offing themselves into the great feminist utopia in the sky. The ones remaining will be toting water home and raising chickens in their back yards just like the women in Haiti do.

          Everything’s spiking these days, including those afflicted with the Dunning-Kruger effect. And the most insufferable of that cohort are females since they’re far more socially voluble about their opinions.

          Wanna know what most women these days think politically? Watch CNN for an evening and you won’t even have to listen to them (unless the unfortunates are trapped due to family or work environment). At least Dom Lemon clocks out for the shift each evening.

            “The people I talk to” says the expert on scientifically researched and reproduced studies. And all tied up in a typically nasty ad hominem spewfest bow.

            You didn’t notice (as I knew would be the case) that I didn’t say women were any more afflicted with Dunning-Kruger (both sexes are equally guilty), because your thought process runs on a very simple binaristic line. I said that women, as a group, were more vocal about it. Which is easily evident, unless one is a blinkered feminist.

            Women, much more so than men, will, unasked, confidently regale anyone with their opinions — including mainstream political talking points. Men will generally not volunteer their idiocy unless asked or provoked, even though they’re just as deluded.

            But go ahead and convince everyone here that you’re right because your co-workers said something stupid, or your neighbour or family member. And don’t forget to always add on that “I was never fooled”, “I did the right thing”, and “I was way ahead of the game on that.” Your arm must be getting sore from all that reach-around back-patting.

        I admit that when the baby formula shortage a while back was building up into a Covid level of hysteria, I thought: why aren’t these women breast-feeding? Why are they selling their and their babies’ health to crap like Nestlé? Am I missing something?

        • Paula D September 2, 2022 at 5:43 pm #

          It was weird. The factory shut down in Feb or something and the shortage didn’t start until months later.
          That was plenty of time for all new mothers to be told about the problem and encouraged to breastfeed.
          By 6 months babies start on solids, so it wouldn’t have been that big a problem if women had breastfed.

          But damn! Try mentioning that obvious fact and watch the Woke descend upon you.
          How can women breastfeed if they had their breasts cut off as 14 year olds, when they went through their trans phase?

          • megabeth September 3, 2022 at 10:12 am #

            Breastfeeding always starts catfights of one sort or another. Say a positive word about it and you get called a nipple nazi by some disgruntled old crab who feels guilty about formula feeding. This predates trans mastectomees by decades.

          • Paula D September 3, 2022 at 2:22 pm #

            That is true Megabeth.

            But even back in 2005 when I watched the mothers in New Orleans demanding formula for their babies after Katrina, I thought “Wow, no one watching this would ever take the chance of bottle feeding again”.

      Good point Beryl – true with a lot of instincts – going from dull to non-existent.

      There is such a thing as Nature Deficit Disorder. Time spent in the wild, in nature, in the outdoors, can teach much about not only maternal instincts, but many other instincts.

      We’re all born with them, but they become dulled over time – kids having better instincts than many adults. Kids can see the difference between good & evil – many adults can’t. So, here we are.

        Anyone wishing to see maternal instincts at work in nature? Watch a dog give birth to and care for her pups. She knows exactly what to do. Go kick a bear cub around a momma bear and see what happens! Why wouldn’t human females also have these instincts? Our “culture” tries as hard as it can to train all these instincts out of women, and also in like fashion it psychologically castrates all the young males. That’s a process that starts in first grade elementary school and it continues all the way up PhD level.

        Go to school and graduate with a BS degree and you have “Bull Shit”. Get an MS and you’ve got “More Shit”. PhD is just means Piled higher and Deeper.

        Young males are all confined indoors, kept away from learning any blue collar skills, and stuck in the same chairs all day long under the control of fake “stepford wife” delusional female teachers who shouldn’t be let anywhere close to kids in the first place, let alone teaching them.

          The kid may get enjoyment from has father playing on the swing set with him, but you learn how to be a man by watching adult males do adult male things.

          • Woodchuck September 2, 2022 at 2:50 pm #

            Watching adult males at work? Doing things like feeding cattle, welding, cutting trees, or building barns? That might indeed happen on a farm or in a home schooling situation. It won’t happen much in suburbia or in any public school settings. In that world, about all the physical activity allowed now is “sports”.

            “Sports” a long time ago used to be something only for the sons of aristocrats and wealthy people in Europe. If you were born a serf or the offspring of a tradesman, you wouldn’t be out playing rugby in fancy clothes, playing polo, or going fox hunting. You’ll start working and learning a trade or an occupation as a child. Many people in the current surburban lifestyle think they are living like British aristocrats in fancy homes and having spare time for sports or something like the equivalent of fox hunting. There is hardly anything practical being taught or going on in schools today. It’s all a pile of posturing and make believe bullshit.

            Most dads these days don’t do adult male things. They’ll grab the Playstation as soon as junior drops it to fill his face with factory-fresh cheese doodles.

            Sports? That’s something you watch. And talk about. And argue about. Hard to run around the bases with a 256 oz Big Gulp sloshing around in your belly. Most modern dads know the composition of their favorite sports team far better than they do their local government.

          Women nurse and love (exchanging needed smiles, touch, etc) their offspring. At about three years old, it’s on fathers to grab the torch from their wives.

          Absent fathers are even worse than abusive fathers. A father is God to the son until the latter’s about nine years old. After that, he should still respect the father for the rest of his life. That is, if the father’s done an honorable job.

      It’s a denial of Dr Spock who told women that they know more than they think they do. In other words, don’t trust ‘the science” or any faux incarnation thereof, trust yourselves.

      • Paula D September 2, 2022 at 5:52 pm #

        I had a Dr. Spock book when I was a new mother.

        Very, very useful. He covered so many problems that mothers today drag their infants to the ER about.
        Look it up in the index (that’s pre-googling) and there it is.
        The attack on Dr. Spock in the 70s was really an attack on mothering and common sense.

        One thing I remembered in 2020 when the Establishment was doing its best to turn Americans into OCD paranoid hypochondriacs was Dr. Spock’s advice about if it was necessary to sterilize the plates you fed your baby on.
        “Germs don’t grow on clean, dry surfaces”.

        Boom! I watched in utter amazement as idiots programmed by Fauci and gang dumped Lysol and bleach onto their plates, their groceries, and their kids.
        (And then they blamed it all on Trump).

      I have a whole folder of those kinds of articles tucked away. It’s been going on for some time, subtly at first (as is always the case) and now overtly hostile. Medical schools now refer to a foetus as being like a tumor. They attacked first by abusing the language in an attempt to equate the natural process of pregnancy and birth with a disease.

      I’ve seen it in my own extended family, where some of the young women become absolutely enraged at the thought of motherhood. It’s not just that they decided never to become a mother; there’s something seriously deranged about the fury that bursts out of them at the mere idea of anyone giving birth.

      • farmgal September 2, 2022 at 1:46 pm #

        From what I can tell they are seriously deranged and fury bursts out of them at just about anything. I see pics on the net of these young women and you can almost see the foam flecks forming around their mouths.

        • Rowdypiglet September 2, 2022 at 4:02 pm #

          I think there’s a lot to unpack there. In every instance that I know personally, and most of those I see on the net, these are women who have pretty much had their own way in everything for most of their lives. Yet they give the impression of people who have been frustrated and denied to the point where it has driven them mad.

          No one has forced them to become mothers. In my own family, their decisions to forego children have been accepted without so much as a word, yet they’re as angry as if they’d been blocked from birth in every single thing they ever wanted to do – rather than supported and indulged as they actually have been.

          I can’t help wondering if what they really want is to have children and raise them, but have been made to feel that they shouldn’t want that. There’s a deep well of outraged anger that’s completely disproportional to the conditions of their real lives, and you have to wonder what’s at the bottom of it.

          • MaryQueen September 2, 2022 at 7:56 pm #

            There is definitely something there, about women being taught to ignore our natural instincts. Been going on a long time but really kicked in around the 1980s IMHO.

            We were told if our gut told us not to get into an elevator with some guy who gave us the creeps, we might be misandrists, rude or racists… and women complied, except the ones that didn’t buy the bullshit and continued to listen to their guts.

          • Blackbird September 2, 2022 at 9:04 pm #

            Now it seems that women are being told – and generally accepting what they are told – that every man is a rude racist misandrist. Ok, every white man…

          • Soul Forensics September 2, 2022 at 11:04 pm #

            Bird,

            What’s funny is to listen to the Woke internecine squabbling after, say, a White woman is physically attacked by a Black man (not a rare occurrence). Obvious case of who the victim is, or who should be sympathized with. Of course, the reverse is the what happens. Blacks are higher now than women as an oppressed group — they win the victim Olympics, just as transsexuals are trouncing gays and women.

    “A politician does not declare war on half the country in a spirit of comity.”

    This is exactly the type of crap they do, the gaslighting, calling for unity while condemning people at the same time. Well, certain groups of people.

    What is a “MAGA” anyway? Someone who doesn’t buy Democrap bullshit? Someone who refuses to kow-tow to the establishment bollocks? That is a huge part of the country, not half. I’d say more like 70% at this point… poor Jo Jo Magoo living in his DC bubble probably has no idea what the average person knows or thinks.

    The shitlibs (can’t really call them classic liberals at this point, so I’m using Jimmy Dore’s term for them) are not a very big demographic. They are just the loudest, and the ones who use social media the most. True, they do also run a lot of the institutions and corporations. But that can and will have to change.

    I think soon it will be apparent that people have had enough of this absolute nonsense.

    • Night Owl September 2, 2022 at 10:52 am #

      This is all a linguistic mind fuck.

      The unity they are calling for doesn’t include ‘them’ what Joe is savaging at the podium. They want to unify the left against the right. When they speak of threats to ‘our’ democracy, they are not including ‘them’ what Joe is vilifying at the alter.

      This could go on for awhile. Suffice it to say, they are skilled in the art of double-think. I believe the party of diversity and inclusion is really the party of conformity of thought and exclusion of wrong-think.

          For the past two years it has been impossible to smile at babies because the overlords decreed that all faces be covered.

          And they have known for decades that babies need to see human faces to develop emotionally and to learn to talk. Babies prefer to look at human faces above anything else.

          The average IQ of babies born in the last two years has dropped by 20 points and speech problems are rampant.

          That was deliberate.

      @MQ – While I totally agree that people have had enough of this nonsense, I find it refreshing that people are being forced to declare their positions. Case in point, I have always thought my dentist was a conservative but after a conversation the other day, he went off on a rant about the Supreme Court taking us back to the dark ages because of all the Roman Catholic justices. He then proceeds to offer me a copy of “Foreign Affairs” magazine which is a publication of the Council on Foreign Relations.

      So I took it and decided to read essays by the likes of Robert Kagan and Francis Fukuyama. Always good to know what’s in the enemy’s mind. They still love to throw the term “liberal” around as if it has any relation to the classic use of the word. These neocons are even worse than the shitlibs.

    Jim,
    Great post this morning! You regularly insert predictions that I think are monumental, that sometimes get put off to the side in the comments because your readers are so engrossed with the news of the day. Case in point today, yes, Biden’s speech is symbolic of where his handlers’ heads are presently. But what about your prediction of major financial upheaval before Nov 8?

    I have no doubt your readers are making their own preparations as life continues to transform into a malevolent clown world. As of February 2022, for the first time in 19 years, I am no longer a landlord. The buying frenzy was just nuts and the moratorium on evictions was equally nuts. So I sold my properties. But why do you think the financial markets will convulse before Nov 8? Usually such events reflect poorly on the incumbents. Wouldn’t the current administration try to prop things up until after Nov 8?

    You hear things and read things that I don’t. I am very curious as to what is shaping your view (specifically the timing). I haven’t read that everyone on Wall Street knows this.

    Does anyone else have any thoughts on this either?

    Mrs. SAJ

    • stelmosfire September 2, 2022 at 11:12 am #

      mrs saj, I’ve been a landlord for 37 years. My wife of 39 years was all sell, sell sell while the prices were up. My thoughts? sell and do what with the money?. Everythings paid for. I’ve never had a tenant problem. My rents are about 50-60% of market prices. It’s steady money. I only raise a rent when a new tenant comes on board. I’ve got a couple renters that have been there for 20+ years and still pay the same rent. Of course I do all the work myself so that keeps prices down. I’m retired so I have the time. My wife is a saver and puts a ton of money in the bank at .5% interest. What a losing bet that is. Behavior ingrained into her by her Dad. I’d be very leery of putting any money in the stock market. I say buy tangibles because inflation will eat your savings for lunch.

      • Beryl of Oyl September 2, 2022 at 11:39 am #

        I’m noticing a small but growing problem in my area- people having to vacate their affordable apartments, and literally having nowhere to go, because rents in the complexes are going sky high, presumably to make up for losses when rents weren’t being paid.

        I think we are going to be seeing an underground economy of people taking in lodgers.

        • mrs_saj September 2, 2022 at 1:14 pm #

          • Hereward the Woke September 3, 2022 at 10:10 am #

            Hi Graham. I’m replying to your question below about where the payment system is going. They will almost certainly try the full on digital money thing. Most will go along with it. Standing in the supermarket queue today, I was amazed at how few people use cash. However, I think there is room for significant resistance. I remember watching a wonderful video from a town in Greece during the financial downturn there back in 2012. They had the Euro (aka toilet paper in waiting) as the official currency, but also created their own currency, the Cem. This was exchangeable for other goods and services. It not only worked well but brought many people together. The problem with such systems, however, is going to be that the Davos Nazis will try to destroy them. However, even in the most authoritarian systems there has always been an alternative, black economy. I live in hope!

      • mrs_saj September 2, 2022 at 1:11 pm #

        Stelmosfire,

        We are very similar, you and I, you’ve just been at it for twice as long. Our rentals were all paid for too. But we were selling for 3-4x what we paid. I couldn’t resist. I did not have tenant problems either, but when a political party seems intent on blowing up the economy AND people find out they can’t be evicted, all bets are off. We 1031-exchanged into some land in an undisclosed location (lol). I plan on buying a new portfolio of properties after real estate implodes. I’m waiting to see how high interest rates go.

        I am sitting on quite a bit of cash right now. Don’t worry, I won’t put it in the stock market. There’s going to be a correction. I just thought JHK’s prediction of it happening before November 8 was VERY specific.

        Your FIL and wife sound like good people with good principles. I agree though that sometimes markets punish savers and you need to find diversified places to put your money. Maybe we can compare notes after the dust settles?

        Best,
        Mrs. SAJ

        • TPTB-USA September 3, 2022 at 11:52 am #

          Are you thinking that high interest rates will cause real estate to implode?

          Do you foresee the possibility that real estate goes higher as a result of money trying to escape a dollar devaluation?

          Assuming you are in the US, I assume that your cash is US$ as well. Do you give any consideration about parking your cash in another currency?

          For real estate to survive, I assume that you don’t see a significant breakdown in government (on the order of WEF you will own nothing), or are you just taking it one step at a time?

          Concerning financial markets convulsion, my 2 cents is that this relates to money flow. I think in terms of the market being out of gas, and guys like Buffet doing a jig like you are doing with real estate, and then at some wash-out point, as MA puts it, there will be a phase transition (like what is happening with MERVAL) where the money will pour back in to avoid a devaluation in another vehicle. MA points out that the US bond market is 10x the US stock market. He also comments that 70% of physical US$ are in Europe (Could this be a justification for Yelen being the perfect stooge for secretary of the treasury, as well as use it or lose it and all the other spending spree nonsense?), and that China is in the process of shedding their US bond holdings. What will be the consequence of money flow relating to an escape from these vehicles?

          What is the end result for real estate with a dollar collapse? What happened in Venezuela?

  22. elysianfield September 2, 2022 at 10:57 am #

    Well, ladies and germs;

    Regarding Biden;s speech, the Situational Awareness comments;

    “If you also observed this last night, you’re not alone. Charlie Hurt, a conservative political commentator, also had that observation. During a post-speech panel, he said, “I was calculating this in my mind before we went on whether I would even say something like this… If I were to be completely honest about it, I think he [Biden] is doing everything he can to gin up something so that people do get out of hand. That’s a terrifying thing to contemplate,”

    Not to blow my own horn (or anyone elses, you sick bastards), I first opined this very concept a couple of months ago on this site. Push until the citizens “take it to the streets”, and then have reason to declare a National Emergency, and all the wonderful things it might entail.

    I have anticipation…not of the “giddy” sort.

    Cool plan, and it will work, eventually.

    • Disaffected September 2, 2022 at 11:36 am #

      Spot on. Create the “emergency,” then crack down to “solve” it. I was pointing this out as well over on Saker Blog two years ago when people were getting pretty spun up. “Watch your step,” I said, “it all smells like deliberate provocation to me.”

        I think you’re right about the speech being intentionally inflammatory. They would love nothing more than a group of “white suprematists” create a violent situation. Look at the mileage they’ve gotten from January 6th.

          Dis and SW,

          This found on the Raconteur blog this AM;

          In ref the Emperor, I wrote this as a response to a query from a friend (who spent 10 of the last 20ish years) as the chief librarian for the USSF School House and taught in a couple of their classes. (Doz is the abbreviation of his handle I use)–::

          Doz, CLOSE but no declaration of war (though it would have fit in Paris or Berlin in about ’37-’38-or EARLY ’39.
          What he DID was lay the WHOLE foundation for imprisoning all of the folks who consider MAGA or being “Deplorables” as GOOD.
          If I were plotting the movie, I’d give this a few days to settle, get someone in a red MAGA hat to drop a grenade in the center of Grand Central Station, and run off a few mags of .556.
          Then pick 3-4 major transportation hubs for PASSENGERS and every 4th or 5th day blow one up.

          This gets you to the end of Sept and gets another speech making MAGA and republicans WORSE than 1939 Jews.
          And 1-2-3 Oct the declaration of non-personhood and the roundups.

          Because understand we are dealing with a slow-burn Kristallnacht in the Blogosphere right now.

          3 and a half weeks from now you won’t recognize this country. If someone thinks that niggers have been shoved down in the last years will be SHOCKED at how depraved and terrifying MAGAs will be by the end of Sept.

          You taught this for a living so you know PRECISELY how this plays out….

    This was nothing more than demonizing rhetoric of political opposition.

    The DNC authoritarians know that the recently elected Trump endorsed politicians were heavily supported.

    Mush McTurtle knows this as well, and why he is actively working (or not working) against them.

    In sum, it’s nothing more than the ESTABLISHMENT vs the people.

    The entrenched and status quo vs the usurpers.

    And just like banana republics so often do, an attempt to vilify the popularly supported faction is instigated.
    Dangerous and divisive rhetoric is employed.
    Enemies of the state (the status quo) are identified, marginalized, and eliminated.

      Cowbell — First it was the leaked abortion reform documents by the Supreme Court (hmmmm they never bothered to investigate who leaked it), then the Get Out of Student Debt Free card, then the Mar-a-Lago raid (but won’t show the paperwork to nosy reporters), and now Biden as Hitler-Lite (with the MAGA hat wearers as a stand-in for Jews) and we’re two months away from the midterms.

      There are more scripted moments ahead but the chant vote, vote, vote that our dear leader loves is going to ratchet up. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they manage to hang on to both Houses. The Republicans are popping the champagne corks way too soon.

    Biden was feeling no pain, what with a double dose of Dr. Feelgood’s meth/steroid injections, but he started to crash at the end of the speech — his handlers, offstage and barely out of sight, must have been sh#ttng in their pants, fingers crossed that he make it thru without nodding off.

    Looks like there were about 50 people in the hall, including hecklers. Apparently that’s all the Producers (from ABC, the same people who stage managed the Jan. 6 hearings) could round up. You could hear emergency sirens from out on the streets, which somehow seems fitting for an event like this.

    The Uniparty that runs the US often uses the polemic device of accusing the ‘other side’ of some extreme view or action. It has been standard operating practice in this country for a long time. However, I feel like this time it was different. There is a definite sense of desperation in slandering tens of millions of citizens in your nation of ‘fascism’.

    “Progression” is over. It has failed, as it was inevitably bound to. The US economy is on the precipice of a serious crash. Or perhaps it has already crashed, and we haven’t completely felt its effects yet. Either way, the US is at a hard, unforgiving Wall. The standard of living, including how long people live in the US, is declining.

    So, here we are. The reaction by the Biden regime & the bizarre grab bag which supports it– the Deep State, corporatists, and the “woke” crowd– is to turn full Orwellian.

    Don’t want a war in Ukraine? Fascism. Don’t want forced vaccinations? Fascism. Don’t want an open border? Fascism. Don’t want a globalized, corporatized world economic system? Fascism.

    It is a complete inversion. Things like war, corporate global control, and less liberty are the positives to the Biden regime & their supporters.

    The same goes for the new social contract. Industrialized baby murder, homosexuality, “trans”, and rationalizations for bizarre or outright unethical, evil behavior are now heralded. These are your replacements to a mother and father, who have children.

    Our duty going forward, to actually resist this satanic agenda– is to say no, 2+2 does not equal 5!

    In short, we need to:

    Make America Great Again

    The war in Ukraine started while Biden was president but the roots of the war go back to at least 2014 when State Department apparatchik Victoria Nuland and her cronies instigated the Maidan Revolution. Putin responded with a takeover of Crimea, which had been part of the Russian Empire since 1783 and the US and other NATO countries responded to this takeover with a variety of sanctions against Russia. Sanctions often lead to war, so the Russian attack on Ukraine was not a surprise to me.

    • Night Owl September 2, 2022 at 1:26 pm #

      Yes. Also, the NATO/Western-backed regime had also been terrorizing the Donbass with regular rocket attacks for years after the Maidan Coup.

    • Paula D September 2, 2022 at 7:40 pm #

      The US and NATO spent 8 years in Ukraine building up the biggest and most well-armed military in Europe.
      They dug into fortified bunkers and trenches smack in the middle of the Donbass, where they spent 8 years sniping at and shelling citizens.

      Funny how the Mighty Wurlitzer of propaganda leaves all that out, while simultaneously talking about the “most battle-hardened” soldiers in the Donbass.
      How did they get battle hardened, you dipshit “reporters” of propaganda. You just repeat what you are told, but never ask how it came about.

      Why is it taking Russia so long to get the Donbass cleared? Could it be the miles of trenches and the bunkers and the fortified basements and the stockpiles of weapons and ammo and the 110,000 soldiers stationed in the midst of the farms and towns? Could it be the mines they are still dropping onto city streets, to blow up any human or animal who comes across them? Could it be the fanatical Nazis, given drugs to make them even more vicious, who are willing to kill any Russian they find, even women and children?

    Joe Biden’s administration may soon be able to bask in the glory of successfully sending men and women to the moon and back. NASA’s Artemis moon rocket tests are now underway. These tests will determine if it is possible to successfully pass through Earth’s 3000 degree thermosphere and exposhere layers without having essential parts of the spacecraft melt.

    After this, the Artemis tests will determine if the spacecraft’s shielding will allow human beings to survive exposure to the extremely deadly radiation of the Van Allen belts. Once these problems have been overcome, human beings will once again set foot on the moon and Joe Biden can put a feather in his cap.

Pres Eisenhower was getting a lot of criticism and for a while things looked bad, the Russkies and the Commies were beating us! And then we answered with the Navy’s Vanguard rocket which was to place *our* satellite into orbit. Broadcast live on tv in the 50’s, our rocket blew up on the pad and was a huge national embarassment.

      You need to realize that at the earliest Artemis III, the crewed landing to put the first woman and the next man (a POC), is far off in the distance. Right now, the first crewed flight of Artemis, Artemis II won’t fly until mid-to-late 2024. Note the mission number and the date. That depends on the success of Artemis 1. Artemis III is tentatively scheduled for 2025. It won’t happen. While the Artemis spacecraft should be in good shape after Artemis 2, the Human Landing System built by Space X is not even finished its final design certification yet. The Artemis 3 spacecraft will be launched to the moon after the Huiman Landing System has been orbited around the moon. Get this: The Human Landing System has to be orbited by a rocket that has almost twice as much thrust as the Artemis 1 rocket. That rocket hasn’t flown into orbit at all yet. Prior to the HLS launch, its booster has to launch something called a propellant depot. That same booster will launch in four separate launches propellant tankers that will dock with the depot and fill it with propellent. Then then the HLS has to dock with the loaded propellant depot and fuel and then head to the moon. That’s five consecutive missions for the largest rocket ever bult (by a factor of 2) before Artemis 3, crewed is launched to the moon to dock with it (the HLS) and ride it down to the moon. Won’t happen until 2027 or 2028…if ever. Each Artemis launch is going to cost 4.1 billion dollars. That’s not sustainable.

        There are a few discrepancies that exist in the official NASA version of their various roundtrips to the moon: The lack of a blast crater under the rocket as the spacecraft landed on and later left the moon, the American flag waving in the solar wind, the lack of stars in the lunar background, the conflicting directions of shadows cast by objects in the same picture, etc.

        However, I would never suggest that the moon landings were faked. The problem is that current NASA scientists can’t seem to figure out how their predecessors accomplished the first moon landings over 50 years ago.

            I remember wanting to stay up to watch In Living Color and my mother would always refuse, likely because of the scary Blacks on the show. Bought the complete series on DVD years later and watched them all. Quite tame by today’s standards, however some things would certainly not fly in today’s PC culture.

            James (“Jim”) Carrey was their token White actor, and even he did not have many roles. It was funny to see him kind of shunned and off to the side in the closing credits when everyone was wigging out and ghetto dancing.

    I pray that Kunstler’s confidence in we the people prevails. When Biden throws the word ‘fascist’ into the ether, he’s calling out ANTIFA, who wouldn’t know a fascist if one bit them, as they themselves are the brown shirts employed by today’s fascists – BIG TECH / BIG GOVERNMENT. I don’t think their provocations will be ignored this go around.

          Apparently nothing else matters, its all about the slavery or nothing.

    Just finished reading “Upheaval” by Jared Diamond. As he introduces the chapter on Chile, he asks the reader to keep in mind that the USA and Chile both have had strong democratic traditions.

    “The yielding of that tradition to a dictatorship seemed utterly inconceivable to Chileans in 1967, just as it seems inconceivable to many Americans today. But it did happen in Chile,….Could it also happen in the U.S.?” p.143

    I response to Woodchuck’s comment upthread: “Nobody is going to invade us because there won’t be anything here anyone will want. It would be like invading Haiti. Why? There would be no reason to.”

    My response: There will likely still be some things here that people would want – (1) Our women; (2) Our water contained in natural lakes; (3) Any remaining timber in the Northwoods.

    • Jarek September 2, 2022 at 1:09 pm #

      Hardwood forests are the most productive lands of any. And North America has the largest amount of these of any place on Earth, centered in the center of the continent, namely the United States. And to the east of these, hundreds of miles of productive plains or steppes, good for grain and cattle. Even the drier parts to the east of these can be used for cattle as well.

      Woody gets it wrong again.

    • CrusherMuldoon September 2, 2022 at 1:26 pm #

      • cowbell81 September 2, 2022 at 2:22 pm #

        By “our women” I was thinking of 1940’s era pin-up style classics, or the women that were sent to Nam to provide comfort to the soldiers in Apocalypse Now.

        Point taken, there are not many of these female types remaining out there in the wild, but like the presumed extinct Ivory-billed Woodpecker, one can still continue searching and dare to dream that such an Atlantis filled with such women exists.

    • Woodchuck September 2, 2022 at 1:31 pm #

      Why would they (invaders) do something like the rape of the Sabine women? Why would they get into military action to get women when the available ones they want here will be for sale anyway? Buying them would be far less expensive and dangerous than warfare.

      I can see invaders coming here looking for oil or gold etc. something they can easily ship out – but not water. Only domestic tribes here would go attacking other tribes or states for water. Internal water wars, yeah.

      They might try coming in to steal timber and ship it out, but it could be that local hoodlums and guerilla guys in the woods might make that an unprofitable enterprise with logging trucks and trains being attacked along with whatever other infrastructure the invaders put up. Whatever they’ve built that is needed for stealing and shipping logs from remote forest to coastal shipping terminals. If a big foreign military presence is needed here just for them to steal lumber, it may not be a profitable enterprise for them and they’ll look elsewhere. The invaders may not enjoy living and working under road warrior conditions. Just my two cents and worth every penny.

        The Chinese will want North America for its farmland, at the very least. From their perspective, it’s very underpopulated. I assume they’ll start bringing even more of their people in as well.

          Do you sometimes consider that the Chinese elite are actually on-board with the WEF and that they, too, are engineering massive global population reduction?

    Max Boot, Washington Post

    PROVINCETOWN, Mass. — I’ve been feeling very blue this summer. Oh, I don’t mean I’m depressed — I’ve been having a ball. But I’ve been spending time in some of the most liberal enclaves in America: first Martha’s Vineyard (where former President Barack Obama has a house), then Provincetown, Mass., an LGBTQ mecca where pride flags are ubiquitous. I even took my step-kids to a drag show. (Don’t tell Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis!)

    Sign up for a weekly roundup of thought-provoking ideas and debates
    I have to admit that even this reformed ex-Republican did a slight eyeroll at the car next door to our rented beach house in P-town. It sports bumper stickers proclaiming “Biden-Harris,” “Coexist” (with Christian, Jewish, Muslim and peace symbols), “Resist” and “Bye Don” under a shock of yellow hair. Naturally, it’s a Subaru station wagon with a bike rack. How cliche can you get?

    It is easy in such environs to imagine that you’re not in the “real America.” In fact, a friend who lives, as I do, in New York City — yet another Democratic bastion — made precisely that observation in a half-joking manner. “I’m happy not to be in America,” he told me, meaning, presumably, he was happy to be in a place where drag queens are considered normal and Trumpkins are not.

    But you know what? Provincetown is the real America. So is Martha’s Vineyard. These communities are undoubtedly on the left and prone to excesses of political correctness that make for easy punch lines. But, in many ways, they might be more representative of 2022 America than the Rust Belt diners where reporters love to take the pulse of Trumplandia.

    There is an implicit assumption, shared by many Republicans and Democrats, that “real” Americans are White, rural, conservative, Christian and poorly educated. (“I love the poorly educated,” Donald Trump said in 2016.) Ultra-MAGA Republicans assume that their policy preferences — anti-immigration, anti-gun control, anti-abortion, anti-“woke” — are the only legitimate views that can be held by “real” Americans, and that anyone who disagrees is a pointy-headed elitist or “globalist” who is out of touch with reality.

    Yet it is White, Christian, rural, conservative voters who are now in the minority. Indeed, much of the reason that MAGA Republicans sound so hysterical so much of the time is that they know that the tides of economic and demographic change are leaving them behind. The White share of the population has declined from 80 percent in 1980 to just 60.1 percent in 2019. By the 2040s, America is projected to become “majority minority.”

    Accompanying this demographic shift is an economic shift that puts a premium on brains over brawn: In 1970, 31.2 percent of non-farm workers were employed in blue-collar jobs. By 2016, the blue-collar share of the workforce had fallen to just 13.6 percent. There is even a religious shift: Atheists and agnostics are the fastest-growing religious group in the country, while the percentage of Christians declined by 15 points between 2007 and 2021.

    Demography is not necessarily destiny, and Latinos, in particular, are not as Democratic as they used to be. But these trends are hardly favorable for a Trumpified Republican Party whose base increasingly consists of White, evangelical Christians who haven’t graduated from college.

    A more diverse, better-educated country is more liberal, particularly on cultural issues. In other words, more like P-town and the Vineyard. Just look at the massive shift on same-sex marriage. Even Obama came out against marriage equality in 2008 when it had the support of only 40 percent of Americans. Now same-sex marriage is supported by 71 percent of the public — and even by 55 percent of Republicans. It has become a nonissue.

    The hardcore MAGA base might thrill to the kind of cultural warfare practiced by Trump and DeSantis, but it repels most of the electorate — which is why so many Republicans who touted their opposition to abortion during the primaries are now soft-pedaling an unpopular stance.

    Our political system has a sharp minoritarian bias, but there is little doubt that Democratic positions are way more popular than Republican ones. Sixty-seven million more Americans live in counties won by Joe Biden than by Trump in 2020 — and the Biden counties produce 71 percent of U.S. gross domestic product.

    The Biden strongholds are in major cities and suburban areas — and that is increasingly where most Americans live. Even in red states, major metropolitan areas tend to be pretty blue. The largest city Trump won in 2020 was Oklahoma City, whose entire population (681,054) is less than half that of Manhattan, the New York borough where the former president was once feted and now is a pariah.

    The whole country might not be nearly as progressive as Provincetown or Martha’s Vineyard, but those blue havens are closer to an increasingly liberal mainstream than the MAGA redoubts where pickup trucks sport “Let’s Go, Brandon!” bumper stickers. There is a good reason so many MAGA Republicans are embracing “semi-fascism”: Their views are too unpopular to command majority support anymore. They certainly don’t speak for the “real” America — to the extent that such a thing even exists.

    Jarek: It’s all here. The desperate desire to replace White Americans, not just their culture, but they themselves. And when they are a minority, they’ll still be considered behind everything bad that happens.

    White Nationalists were way ahead of the curve. You spat on us but now you’ve been made into us by default by the powers that be. We were right about everything. And you were wrong about everything. Everything? In essence, yes. What can be more fundamental than identity after all? Who get to live here and who gets what and why? Hard work or a racial spoils system?

    Quotes of Pinochet

    Everything I did, all my actions, all of the problems I had I dedicate to God and to Chile, because I kept Chile from becoming Communist.

    Sometimes democracy must be bathed in blood. (remember Jefferson’s Tree of Liberty – Jarek)

    Don’t forget that in the history of the world, there was a plebiscite, in which Christ and Barabbas were being judged, and the people chose Barabbas.

    The only solution to the issue of human rights is oblivion.

    I have lived with my conscience and my own memories for over quarter of a century since the events of 1973. These are not easy reflections for me. But I am at peace with myself, and with the Chilean people, about what happened. I am clear in my mind that the return to Chile of true democracy, and from that the true freedom to which all individual people are entitled, could not have been achieved without the removal of the Marxist government.

    Rome cut off the heads of Christians and they continued to reappear one way or another. Something similar happens with Marxists.

    The rich people are those who create wealth, and you have to treat them well so they continue to give wealth.

    Today, near the end of my days, I want to say that I harbor no rancor against anybody, that I love my fatherland above all and that I take political responsibility for everything that was done which had no other goal than making Chile greater and avoiding its disintegration. I assume full political responsibility for what happened.

    The freedoms which had been so hard won from colonial domination were being crushed by Soviet-inspired and funded military and political forces. Their clear intention was to deprive the people of their democratic freedoms. As history shows, this is what had happened in the Soviet Union and in Cuba, and continues to be the case in other parts of the world.

    Had I been a dictator, I would still be governing.

    During 65 years, I have walked the path of duty and discipline… And today, looking back at that long path of service, my soldier’s heart stirs and murmurs from deep within: Thank you. Thank you, my homeland.

    Jarek: A great Man speaks. Will you listen? Will you act? Such a man cannot lead if you will not follow. This is Fascism.

    • Sean Coleman September 2, 2022 at 3:18 pm #

      Matthew Raphael Johnson has apparently just written a book about S American military dictators, whom he speaks highly of From memory, his argument is that received opinion says that the Americans supported right-wing military regimes there and elsewhere whereas the truth was the opposite. (Presumably they were happy to push this narrative so as to throw people off the scent.) The army provided a rare opportunity for talented, energetic and patriotic young men from predominantly poor backgrounds to succeed in life and to serve their country.

      I can’t find a podcast exclusively on the topic but I expect he will make one in time. I listened to an interesting one of his about the Falklands War. The British forces were close to exhaustion and admitting defeat when the Argentinians unexpectedly surrendered. He quotes senior British army figures in support of this. He says that America (ie the ‘usual suspects’) pressurized the Argentinian government to do it, presumably by threatening to cut off loans.

      I remember being impressed by the film Missing back in the day (starring Jack Lemmon) but looking back now it was misleading and back to front. Like practically everything.

        What the hell is going on in England?

        At an event called the ‘Notting Hill Carnival — ‘A Celebration of Caribbean Culture’ — 40 people stabbed, a dozen police sent to the hospital, numerous robberies and assaults, and a police horse killed after being struck in the head with a brick.

        I always thought of the Brits as a law abiding lot?

        Well, at least we won’t have to listen to any more smug lectures from the British on American violence, and American racism, lol.

        • cowbell81 September 2, 2022 at 3:50 pm #

          That represents the true Caribbean lifestyle. I guess it may have been all that pent up energy after not having the carnival since 2019. Sounds like a fun time as this year’s spectacle was plagued by death, eight sexual assault cases, and hundreds of arrests.

          The Brits should bring back full coats of armor and chain mail to protect the police and their horses.

          • BackRowHeckler September 2, 2022 at 4:41 pm #

            Yeah there must be tons of armor in British museums, altho the last time full armor suits were worn in battle is during the Wars of the Rose’s 1455-1485. I think you’re on to something there, Cowbell, stabbings and shankings having become a sort of national pastime in British cities of late — armor won’t stop a bullet but it will stop a switchblade.

            Do you get the feeling that the UK is transforming into something unrecognizable? And it happened at astonishing speeds, almost overnight.

          • cowbell81 September 2, 2022 at 4:59 pm #

            Plate the armor with Kevlar and you should be a little better positioned against a bullet.

            That is a good idea about the museums and useful resources they hold. When the SHTF and our world completely crumbles, forget about looting the Best Buy and the grocery store. Head down to the local museum or historical society to loot and pillage anything that might be useful towards rebuilding society. Tools and even old time entertainment (i.e. books and view masters) could be had there aplenty.

          BRH, I did not know that. I don’t follow the news except second-hand such as on here. I know there has been a very large rise in knife crime in London in recent eyars and that would be a Black thing (as Colin Flaherty might have put it).

          I went to the Notting Hill Carnival when I was 19 or 20, in the late 70s, with a school friend and met another school friend there by chance. I hated it. I didn’t know it would be all blacks. One of them, a girl, called me a ‘honky’. I have sometimes reflected on the attraction of this event for my friends. They obviously badly wanted to believe in the liberal dream. I would be very surprised if they have changed opinion despite everything that has happened.

          I still remember the shock I got when I was about 12 when we drove through nearby Lewisham in S E London. I hadn’t seen it for about a year and there were knots of young black men, wearing cheap grey or dark suits or in white shirt-sleeves, standing in small knots on every street corner. I had never seen a black man before, even the natives in Tarzan were whites blacked up and the same for the Indians in the cowboy films. And suddenly this. Why? It made no sense at all.

          I came to ireland in 1987 and you would not see a single black face in Dublin from dawn to dusk. it could not last. i wanted things to stay the same but more, it seems wanted them to change, desperately so, I imagine, like my friends at the Carnival. I expect some thought as I did but they said nothing. So what is happening now serves them right, I am sorry to say.

            I took my 5 y.o. to what I thought was a carnival in SF some years ago.
            There I was, dragging a little blonde girl through the crowd looking for the rides which weren’t there. Finally it dawned on me that the whole crowd was men, Mexican men.
            My daughter and I were pretty much the only females there.
            When I came upon a cock fight I was outraged. Where were the police?
            That is when I realized that the police were afraid to go into the crowd.
            Ooops. I took my kid and left. It was Carnaval, not a carnival.

        • Sean Coleman September 3, 2022 at 4:29 pm #

          Jack Lemmon was good in it. I remember his fine speech towards the end where he speaks about how American stood for decent values and that these had been betrayed.

          I was never sympathetic to the Left, especially at university, where I knew for a fact that all these student radicals knew less than I did and I knew hardly anything.

          So I used to read the broadsheets (The Observer on a Sunday, I could never stay awake when I tried to read the Guardian. I once said that in a job interview – for tax inspector – which I failed to get) and watch Newsnight, but with many reservations. You had to get your information somewhere.

          And the thing was, while I disagreed with their slant on things, the Left had certain basic hard facts to fall back on. Everyone accepted them. the problem is that none of them were true. I wish I had known that back then. That is what I go on about here week in week out: this, that and the other are not true, completely untrue, and here are the arguments and here is the evidence. I never expected this would happend, but like Simeon I am glad I have lived to see it.

    • workingclasshero September 2, 2022 at 8:18 pm #

      I remember being a pro-labor leftist progressive and hating Pinochet as one was supposed to back in the day. My politics took a 180 with the rise of the pro BLM hysteria. The anti-free enterprise moralism didn’t help either.

        Bingo, WCH! In our age of total naivety and reality denial, we don’t realise that the only choice we usually get is between Bad and Less Bad. Here in Europe, we still think Franco was a monster, and in many ways he was. But the alternative would have been a thousand times worse. The body count from a Stalinist left wing government would have been in the millions and they would have dragged Spain into WW2.

        • Sean Coleman September 3, 2022 at 4:20 pm #

          I don’t believe Franco was a monster in any way at all. Now, I am relying almost entirely on Pio Moa (Rodriguez) but his arguments appear to me to be unassailable. Franco delayed his uprising until the last possible moment in 1935.. The Left planned a national rebellion in 1934 after the preceding year’s elections went against them (they were in complete control three years earlier where they embarked on, or actively encouraged, a wave of arson against churches and Catholic education institutes) and they conducted fraudulent elections early in 1935.

          The Left engaged in wanton massacres of priests and nuns and the Anarchists were just as bad as the PSOE (Socialists), one of whose leaders, Largo Caballero, was known as “Our Lenin”. The PSOE were every bit as revolutionary as the smaller Communist Party then.

          The other two leaders of the PSOE then were Prieto and Besteiro, who referred to his own party’s ‘Himalaya of lies’.

          The Communists however usurped the PSOE after infiltrating their organization including taking over their youth organization. They were infected with paranoia (as in the USSR) during the war and a reign of terror was conducted against their own side. (I believe this is described in Orwell’s book.)

          The Civil War has its legends of course including Guernica and the massacre at Badajoz. This was entirely invented by Left Wing US journalist Jay Allen, who was probably not even in Spain at the time it was supposed to have occurred.

          Episode 112 of Una Hora Con Historia on YT is the best in my opinion because Pio Moa runs through the twenty or so main myths about Franco. The latter part then discusses the 80th or 90th birthday celebrations of one of the Republican leaders some years after Franco’s death and after the passing of the Ley de la Memoria Historica. He was lauded to the skies by Spain’s great and good but I forget his name and I forget the name of the massacre (Casas Viejas) which he was reponsible for where a couple of thousand (five?) Nationalist prisoners were driven from prison into nearby woods and shot in cold blood.

          I think the number shot by Franco’s government after the war was 20k if that (from memory). These men would have carried out atrocities during the war and they got a trial. In France, on the other hand (as PM notes) the number of alleged collaborators (ie people the Communists and You Know Who) did not like shot out of hand in illegal chaotic reprisals was closer to 100k (again from memory).

          I have come to the conclusion that when you look at any historical event it turns out to be the same thing.

    • Blackbird September 2, 2022 at 11:20 pm #

      Sure, you can love your country and be a thug. But who wants a thug as the leader of their country? Besides, he’s a Latin American kind of leader. We need a North American kind of leader. Henry Ford? (Their both dead anyway…)

      In general the last person I would go to for an objective account of that person’s legacy, would be that person himself.

      I can hear Nixon reading Pinochet’s words in the audiobook, in his best “You won’t have Dick Nixon to kick around any more” voice.

    Now that the excitement has died down a bit, maybe it’s time to address some larger issues.

    Entropy (disorder) is the natural state; it’s takes energy to organize and maintain. What social order takes the least relative effort? Families. But it scales up from there, with empires requiring the most inputs.

    The US was always going to devolve away from unity and towards disorder as a result of successive generations failing to assimilate.

    As a young teen overseas, I saw first hand ethic fighting (actually outright wars) between Turks and Greeks, and then a year later, Jews and Arabs. At that point my parents had had enough and we returned to the States.

    This shit is as old as time itself. If you know where this is heading, then outrage, frustration and other overt emotional reactions are simply a waste of energy.

    You just need to keep quiet and make sure you’re positioned within a safety zone of like race and world view. That’s the only safety net that works.

    In both instances noted above, huge populations moved and militarized borders were erected over 40 years ago.

      Indeed, I posted the same above in response to my interest in ILC, so here it is again so you don’t miss it:

      I remember wanting to stay up to watch In Living Color and my mother would always refuse, likely because of the scary Blacks on the show. Bought the complete series on DVD years later and watched them all. Quite tame by today’s standards, however some things would certainly not fly in today’s PC culture.

      James (“Jim”) Carrey was their token White actor, and even he did not have many roles. It was funny to see him kind of shunned and off to the side in the closing credits when everyone was wigging out and ghetto dancing.

      J-Lo got an early start on the show dancing as one of the Fly Girls. Nowadays you would need to round out the group with a queer fly guy or something.

      • Night Owl September 2, 2022 at 4:15 pm #

        My parents wouldn’t allow it, either. But I still found a way to watch.

        The thing that really hits home now is seeing just how talented some of the cast members of this show were.

        A lot of the writing is pretty witty, too. There is nothing of this caliber out there in comedy these days aside from perhaps Ricky Gervais.

    “I knew we were in for the business with that ‘soul of the nation’ build-up ballyhoo, but I didn’t exactly expect Independence Hall to be decorated in blood red and sepulchral black…”

    Some purported Presidents need to take a beginner’s course and seminar on ‘Leadership’.

    Nowhere in the qualities of being a true Leader does it say you demonize and smear half of the people you are supposedly leading. In what organization is that a strategy for success, really? But as we know, that pathetic excuse of a Speech to the Nation was nothing but a long-winded verbal atrocity-level commercial to elect worried Democrats. Threats to the Nation? Threats to Democracy? Dangers to us all? Hey, ‘Pot’ Democrats… that’s calling the ‘Kettle Black’ (as the saying goes… not everything is racial you know). You want to see threats to the Nation? Look into the nearest mirror, you hypocrites.

    But millions of Woke Americans will fall for The Resident’s verbal blight sewage. And if They are successful in getting a sufficient number of Blue Boys and Girls installed into positions of power, the ongoing liquidation of America will be even further accelerated.

    Are Republicans the answer? The next question would be, the answer to… what? Sure, they are the answer to several questions… but in restoring a wayward nation back to prominence and integrity? That is not one of them.

    The soul of the Nation is very sick. And it will take legion of shamans and exorcists to begin to lead that Soul back to where it needs to be if we are to have a future as individuals and as a Nation.

    “… ‘Joe Biden’ heralded a US economy firing on a gazillion cylinders. ‘American manufacturing has come alive across the heartland, and the future will be made in America’…”

    It sure will. But what he didn’t tell you is that America is subcontracting that job off right back to Red China which will ship the Future back to America in rusting shipping crates upon leaky ships if and when they can secure enough ship’s captains to sail who feel like working that day. And that ‘Future of America’ will be heavily loaded with lots of new Reddish-tinged Spyware and National Bugs and Defects for all of America to enjoy for years to come. While real American factories will continue to either rust away or will be brought by Hedge Funds to build lots of new condos for Blue Voters.

    “‘I give you my word as a Biden, I’ve never been more optimistic about America’s future’, the old faker intoned last night.”

    If anyone questioned the sanity of this worn, pale-looking man before… that remark leaves no doubt at all about his true state of mind. No wonder he is squinting all the time. It pains even him to have to mouth such preposterous words.

    Or maybe he means that he was never optimistic about America in the first place.

    That ‘Speech’? ‘COME ON, MAN…!’

    • Woodchuck September 2, 2022 at 5:33 pm #

      The Fort Sumter episode has a very interesting history. If I remember right, this fort was sitting in a strategic position on an island out in front of Charleston Harbor. Fort Sumter was there so that Washington could enforce the collection of tariffs on ships bringing in imported goods. The tariff money for Washington was collected right there on the spot in the harbor areas. If a ship had unloaded something illegally and got something past the tax man, then Fort Sumter was there to prevent that ship from leaving the harbor. They knew the captain had all that money on the ship, and that a part of their tariff money was sailing off to England with a load of cotton.

      When Lincoln ordered the resupplying of Fort Sumter, Washington was signaling they planned to continue collecting the tariff taxes on shipping. Even though the Union was now trying to collect taxes from a sovereign and independent nation. Of course the fort got attacked, the South responded with canon fire and whupped ’em. Next, the North immediately went about like a child crying and all mad during a sandbox squabble. Boo hoo hoo waaaaaayhhhhhhhh! He started it – he hit me first! Something to get the newspapers to scream “They Attacked Us”!

      • Blackbird September 2, 2022 at 11:35 pm #

        Exactly, Ft. Sumpter was a provocation. You draw a line your adversary can’t help but cross, then cry foul. I think Lincoln did more to set this country on the wrong track than any other President.

        The Mexican War started in a similarly provocative way. Our last “legitimate” war may have been ridiculous War of 1812. And of course the 100 Year Indian War (1790 – 1890), since what’s more natural (and therefore legitimate) than a war of extermination against an alien race/culture?

            The only aspect of Lincoln that I find admirable anymore is the madman. Crazy wife, civil war, maybe a guilty conscience? The photos tell a tale of a man rent asunder.

            Why do we idolize him? Because we were told to. Because we are the greatest country that ever was and we never would have got there if Lincoln hadn’t held us together.

            And his actions were truly heroic, unfortunately in the service of the wrong cause.

          Small caveat: the poor white folk (actually, not all that poor, just act like they are) I live around are pretty damn lazy and shiftless too. Neighbor down the street chided me yesterday, “Damn, your neighbors have made you their bitch!” after watching me clean up and take care of their shit for them. What’s a poor dumb bastard to do these days? Can’t win for losing all around!

            Actually, believe it or not, in spite of the fact that I’m a died-in-the-wool cynic (who would have guessed?) and being proven wrong over and over again more times than I can count, I’m still a believer that if you just model the behavior you want to see in others they’ll (or at least some of them will) eventually come around and act likewise. Unfortunately, I must report damn few successes in that regard during the course of my soon to be 65 years, and I think the trendlines are all pointing downward.

            My new motto is: Do the right thing because it’s the right thing, but don’t even dare expect that it will affect anyone else for the better, because it almost certainly won’t. In fact, they’ll think you’re a sap for being so naïve.

            You’ve never lived in or near a Black ghetto. There’s simply no comparison. Even for Blacks, poor White neighborhoods are typically much safer. The old South Boston and Charlestown were exceptions in this regard. Whites in general have lost all such pride and the militancy that is part and parcel of it.

        I think the real problem is that all the civic systems are outdated. It takes as much money to maintain systems as to build them. Our politicians love to spend money on new bells and whistles but not maintenance. Jackson is just the second major fiasco Flint being no. One.

        The real deal here is that people have to realize that the carpetbagging politicians in this country,

        DO NOT GIVE ONE DAMN ABOUT THEM as they play with their toys.

          And compared to White run cities, Black run cities suck.

          Cold it be that just as Black folks are more gifted physically, Whites are better organizers.

    What I don’t understand is that by now, why isn’t there a few million citizens descending upon Wash DC with pitchforks and torches and physically removing all of these evil snakes and rats from their offices and jobs (no pink slips, no voting, no protocol, etc. just immediate removal by physical force) and warning them that if they come back to DC or ever try to hold public office again they will be hung. Also don’t understand why the CIA, Pentagon, FBI, and Fed Reserve buildings aren’t completely and forcefully put under siege and emptied (or burned to the ground). That is what happened in Sri Lanka.

    I’m wondering if the American people will ever have had enough of their livelihoods, businesses, jobs, middle class, families, homes, children, schools, health, etc. etc. being systematically destroyed beyond repair, and finally stand up and destroy their enemies.

    • cowbell81 September 2, 2022 at 4:47 pm #

      Yeah, the jack boots that run this government would have a field day if a few pink hatted pansies came out and tried to begin a revolt. At this point that seems all pie in the sky. The real American is too busy working and keeping his head above water to worry about getting raped by the government. That is why all the liberal protesters are out of work namby-pamby types, or trust fund babies with a score to settle.

    All this time I thought that the destruction of the USSR took place after the 1991 dissolution.
    But the death of Mr. Pizza Hut, accompanied by the wailing and rending of garments of the entire western propaganda apparatus, led to an article written that gives more history on how the alliance was dismantled and the connected enriched, while the 99% were impoverished.

    This sounds like the military-industrial complex in the US-
    ” While public funds still provided resources for the production of products to factories and plants, now the directors themselves had the right to dispose of these products. They began to direct these resources to the ownership of “family” cooperatives, and they sent them abroad. Cement and metal, petroleum products and gas, cotton, lumber and mineral fertilizers, rubber and leather – everything that the state sent to enterprises for processing and saturating the domestic market was sent by railway trains abroad through the “green zones” on our borders. Cooperative managers and officials began to accumulate capital in personal accounts abroad.”

      Note that when you change the rules to allow the corrupt and ruthless to profit, you get corrupt and ruthless people profiting.

      Note also that one Robert Maxwell was involved in the destruction of the laws and structure of the USSR.

      That would be Ghislaine’s daddy. It’s a big club….etc.

    This blog is becoming downright nasty. Kick back and relax, people. Meanwhile, looks like Jackson, MS will become the next Flint, MI, w/ lotso racial overtones as well. Jackson is 80% black, w/ a black dem mayor. MS gov is a filthy rich white rep. Needless to say they are at loggerheads over what to do about the lack of or tainted water supply. Meanwhile, the residents must buy expensive bottled water and can’t shower or flush toilets. Should be a dandy to watch this one unfold over the next months/years. Are we having fun, yet? Bipartisonship for the common good, anyone? Nah, went out a long time ago.

    • cowbell81 September 2, 2022 at 5:03 pm #

      Yeah, but at least they still have cable TV and high speed WiFi!

      Maybe they should stop giving away all that free water in Wall Drug, SD and ship it down to Jackson instead.

      I would suggest building a pipeline, but then the politicians would probably be opposed since they would think it is being disguised as an oil pipeline (i.e. Keystone).

    • Disaffected September 2, 2022 at 5:11 pm #

      Nasty? Stick around lil’ tommy, you ain’t seen nothing yet. With Biden’s Declaration of War on the Trump R’s last night, I expect things will soon get a whole lot nastier.

      But I will have to complement him on one thing: it certainly clarified things, as if they weren’t clear enough already. Ol’ SloJo’s just too dim to do ambiguity. It’s damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead into the gathering maelstrom for the US on all fronts now. Wars abroad, wars at home, wars of all against all if they have their way, and they’re nothing if not determined to have things their way.

      The real issue is the downfall of American politics being caused by problems that have no solutions under our excellent system of politics.

      Look at the idiotic federal government and it’s inability to do much of anything of importance. It threw out the only guy that wanted to make progress.

      And for all this great service, we get 31 trillion of debt and 87000 more IRS agents, also known as the American Gestapo.

      A few decades ago I was in Florence during a very bad drought. It was in the early eighties.

      The Arno was just a trickle, and there were rats running around on the river bed below the stone walls of the channel.

      So, in most of the small squares of residential areas there were large water tanks that had been trucked in to the city. People came with their own containers to draw potable water and take it home.

      Why can’t Jackson do this? What is this Mickey Mouse s— with plastic water bottles? Can’t people think?

      • Night Owl September 3, 2022 at 10:16 am #

        Jackson itself is probably officially sponsored by the likes of Coca-Cola or some other large unaccountable corporation.

        Nothing but bottled water will ever arrive.

        I am rather surprised they aren’t using the opportunity to set up some more pop-up clot-shot tents.

        Seriously – if people had their own water filters, they could grab water out of the Mississipi river. I have a Berkey, I’d much rather run water through that then spend all that money on bottled water. A Berkey is a couple hundred bucks, but will filter your water for years.

    I saw excerpts from the speech and have read opinions including JHK’s.

    It makes me sick. This man, representing a communist, WEF backed, liberal global and national group of Plutocrats has just declared war on 50% of this country’s population, complete with blood red backdrops and military standing. This is a direct threat against the conservative patriotic half of this country..

    More importantly, it is an attack the rational half of the country, the half that makes things happen. He represents the gimmes, the charlatans that are career politicians, the full time liars, the MSM shills that want this country destroyed so that the Brownies can take over.

    Those are the guys in white hats according to the head idiot in charge, the WEF sponsored crud, the druggies, the murderers of babies and adults too, the rioters, not protestors, killing and destroying rioters, the destroyers of cities.

    It is the Mob, boys and girls at their inglorious best.

    The cartels in Mexico are smiling after hearing the pseudo president declare war on the half of America that want law and order to prevail including the border and the free exchange of drugs. Maybe Bill Gates is encouraging them to overdose more and more kids and adults to reduce the excess population.

    China and Russia holding joint military exercises, both laughing their asses of at this joke of a president. The beginning of the end of this country advanced last night.

    It is the Mob and it’s minions against MAGA and it’s minions.

    I remember the goal of the MAGA group is to make America great again and made some inroads. The Mob wants

    Stupid ignorant people

    Drug customers

    Voting suspended

    Uniparty control

    Not just socialism, communism

    The destruction of all guns

    The destruction of the manufacturing sector

    UBI. Under MMT to enslave the majority of the country.

    Indoctrination, not education.

    Look around you folks. The closest thingsI have ever seen to last night’s fiasco were the rallies held by Hitler, Seig Heil. The Education is becoming like Hitler Youth or the Young Pioneers of Stalin. One point in support of both of these was they did not try to make their kids into sexual perverts. Our illustrious left is definitely doing this to create more meat for the bath house processors.

    This is Democracy? This is an abomination that is the worst in history. If these perverted human beings on the Left get their way in November, it is over. Half of this country will try to join BRICS, myself included.
