The playwrights of yore had a neat way of resolving sticky plots: when it seemed all was lost among the confounded mortals on stage, a supernatural figure would descend from the riggings above the proscenium, lowered in a basket on a cable — Moliere liked to use an actor playing Louis XIV, his patron — to resolve, untangle, forgive, and pardon all the complications of the story. This device is known as the Deus ex Machina, God in a machine.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) announced last week that ex-Special Counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to descend from on-high into the witness chair of Mr. Nadler’s House committee chamber on July 17, presumably to resolve all the conundrums left by his semi-inconclusive RussiaGate report. Remember, in his nine-minute homily on May 29, Mr. Mueller said that if called to testify, he would only answer by referring to the text of his report — hallowed in Wokesterdom until its disappointing release.

Mr. Mueller’s notion of testimony-by-script is at least as unorthodox as his innovation of pronouncing the object of his criminal inquiry “not exonerated,” an unprecedented and certainly extra-legal spin to the prosecutorial standard of finding an indictable offense or not — without added aspersions, insinuations, and defamations. Meanwhile, Mr. Mueller’s standing as a potent God figure has eroded badly. He started out in 2017 as the Avenging Angel in a Brooks Brothers suit, morphed into Yahweh as the RussiaGate Mob patiently awaited his Last Judgment, and then got demoted to mere Sphinx-hood after his Sacred Text failed its basic task: to oust the Golden Golem of Greatness from his unholy occupation of the White House.

Did Mr. Nadler summon Mr. Mueller from beach or lake-side to just recite chapter and verse from his report? What would be the point of that? Well, perhaps to whip up enough media froth to refresh the public’s memory of how Comrade Trump stole the 2016 election at the bidding of his Russian handlers. Is that all? Could be. The problem is that Mr. Nadler’s majority Democrat members are not the only ones who get to ask questions. Did the Chairman forget that? Or did he think the minority — including Reps. Collins, Jordan, Gohmert, and Gaetz — would just lob softballs at the witness?

I can think of a few 90-mph sliders I’d like to pitch to Mr. Mueller, some of them already floated in the press: like, why did you allow the GI cell phones of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page to be destroyed shortly after you were informed about their unprofessional and compromising text exchanges, for which they were fired off your “team?” When did you learn that international men-of-mystery Stefan Halper and Josef Mifsud, whose operations spurred your prosecutions, were not Russian agents but rather in the employ of US and British government intel agencies? Your deputy, Andrew Weissmann, was informed by Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr in the summer of 2016, months before your appointment, that the predicating documents for your inquiry, known as the Steele Dossier, amounted to a Clinton campaign oppo research digest — when did he happen to tell you that? You devoted nearly 20 pages of your report to the Trump Tower meeting between the president’s son, Donald, Jr., and two Russians, lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin. Why did you omit to mention that both Russians were in the employ of Glenn Simpson’s Fusion GPS company, candidate Clinton’s oppo research contractor, and met with Mr. Simpson both before and after the Trump Tower meeting? How did it happen that you hired attorney Jeannie Rhee for your team, knowing that she had previously worked as a lawyer for the Clinton Foundation? Under what legal standard did you pronounce Mr. Trump to be “not exonerated” in the obstruction of justice matter, considering you told the Attorney General, Mr. Barr, that it was not based on findings by the DOJ Office of Legal Counsel concerning presidential immunity from indictment?

The public has been well-distracted by the Democratic Party primary circus, and all reporting about the aftermath of RussiaGate has vanished from the front pages of the news media. Ostensibly, Hillary Clinton is enjoying her solitary walks in the Chappaqua woods and all seems well in the Deep State world. Yet, consider that wild things lurk in those thickets. The DOJ Inspector General, Mr. Horowitz, is overdue with his own report — perhaps stymied by a lack of cooperation in wringing declassified documents from the hands of the many intel agencies involved… while Mr. Barr and his deputy, John Durham, are at work in the background on their own investigation. There will also be repercussions upcoming in the matter of General Flynn, who switched attorneys recently and may be reconsidering his guilty plea based on Mr. Mueller’s prosecutorial misconduct in withholding exculpatory evidence from Judge Emmet Sullivan’s court.

It’s just possible that Robert Mueller will not be reading chapter and verse from his sacred report, like an old-school Episcopal priest, but rather pleading the Fifth Amendment to avert his own potential prosecution.

    Id like Jim to talk more about inflation.
    Food costs are insane.

      I agree inflation is off the chart, the problem is that the government makes the charts!

        Yes, and CPI is changed to make things look much better than reality would show us.

    • Ron Anselmo July 1, 2019 at 10:38 am #

      Look at the Chapwood Index – a true measure of inflation. Annual rates of inflation, 8% to 13%, based upon locale.

      Using rule of 72, and an average annual rate of inflation of 9%, prices double every 8 years.

      Wages, flat to down over last 30 years, with true cost of goods doubling every 8 years – that feeling of being in a vise, not hard to figure out.

      You know Jim does not like to be told to write about. Writers are finicky that way. Jim wants everyone to know that he thinks there is something behind the p-tape allegations or not behind them or something like that. How could we ever know.

      WTF are you talking about K-Dog? This isn’t about P-tapes. Get your head screwed on — JHK Admin

      To believe one way or another would be taking a position sans evidence which shows you crazy catch-22 style. Whatever, as long as real issues are not discussed and Trump and the Dems can continues to game the system and extract value for themselves all is good it seems. The existing arrangement hobbles another few paces down eternities path.

      Except for the K-Dog Interview there does not seem to be anything special going on.

        And here I thought the article would be about Blob one, descending off of Airforce 1, waddling arm in arm with lil’ Kim, saving the World from Armageddon as he caves to accepting that NK has nukes and plans to keep them; just two days after caving to Big Xi on Tariffs and Wauwei.

        No, it’s about Mueller and Hillary. Again. In case you haven’t noticed, that ship has already sunk after striking the iceberg of anger and ignorance that elected Trump, or kinda elected Trump.

        This is what Collapse looks like: Bogus economics, delusions, spiralling debt, lack of leadership, rising inequality, anger, and focusing on the trivial and what no longer matters.

        LGBTQ, desperate political gambits, and additional nonsense that will never be implemented let alone paid for, will all be forgotten as USA continues its descent into hell, all the while proclaiming how great everything is, and how just and fair this rigged rule of law State really is. I always laugh at the MSM meme of USA Justice and human rights, while imprisoning more of its population by percentage than anywhere else on Earth. And NSA keeps trucking along while trump distracts and lines up the elite for an expanded trough.

        Trump is a metaphor for how the World sees the USA; fat, lazy, crooked, ignorant, loud, bombastic, smug, and stupid. Got preps?

            While I agree with your sentiment the truth is there are programs were people are paid money to post or control bots that do in order to steer the public belief systems.

            At least one called operation sockpuppet as far as I know that was defunded after Obama left office.

            @ benr

            Undoubtedly true and it goes without saying in this country where lies, spin, deceit and marketing BS are standard operating procedures. But it is lame to label everyone who might disagree with you as one of these paid trolls. Such tactics, usually employed by conservatives who seem to have that whole persecuted christian victim thing going on, are for simpletons.

        • TiredOfTheTreadmill July 1, 2019 at 9:26 pm #

          Nice post. I feel the same as you about reading here anymore. Once I come across the words Mueller or Hillary in anything Jim writes these days, I just stop reading. Good for Jim, and apparently plenty of angry posters here, for their endless devotion to giving a shit about the political deck chair arrangement as this ship sinks ever lower.

          I had no clue that a woman like Hillary could absolutely captivate such a large segment of our population. But it is on display here every Monday and Friday. It reminds me of silly country songs and guys in their 30’s who still can’t get over the girl who turned them down for their senior prom.

          • benr July 2, 2019 at 9:54 am #

            It’s the idea that people like her can get away with anything that you and I would land in jail for.

          • TiredOfTheTreadmill July 2, 2019 at 10:18 am #

            Yes. Apparently the tiresome ONLY example we have in this country.

            Let’s see…how about Dick Cheney and his puppet GW who got us into billion dollar wars we can’t seem to get out of and killed how many? Oh wait, that’s too ancient of history for our ADD society. Besides, they had Rs behind their names on the ballot and it’s a war thing so we don’t question it.

            What about the unaccounted $billions (trillions?) Regularly missing and unaccounted for in the Pentagon’s budget on a regular basis? I guess there’s no readily available face to put on that one so let’s forget about it too.

            Let’s see…the wall street parasites who bilked tax payers for billions what blow free market smoke up our asses…

            Gee, I guess really can’t come up with any examples that’ll fit your criteria. My mistake. Apparently Hillary really is the cause of all our troubles.

          • benr July 2, 2019 at 1:13 pm #

            “Let’s see…how about Dick Cheney and his puppet GW who got us into billion dollar wars we can’t seem to get out of and killed how many? ” -tott

            You do realize Hillary Clinton voted to go to Iraq?
            So again we have a nexus of Hillary being hip deep in something.
            82 Democrats in the house said yes as well as 29 in the senate so gee it was not all evil people with R’s behind their names. Yes it is ancient history some of which you have forgotten it would appear.

            Sens. Baucus (D-MT), Bayh (D-IN), Biden (D-DE), Breaux (D-LA), Cantwell (D-WA), Carnahan (D-MO), Carper (D-DE), Cleland (D-GA), Clinton (D-NY), Daschle (D-SD), Dodd (D-CT), Dorgan (D-ND), Edwards (D-NC), Feinstein (D-CA), Harkin (D-IA), Hollings (D-SC), Johnson (D-SD), Kerry (D-MA), Kohl (D-WI), Landrieu (D-LA), Lieberman (D-CT), Lincoln (D-AR), Miller (D-GA), Nelson (D-FL), Nelson (D-NE), Reid (D-NV), Rockefeller (D-WV), Schumer (D-NY), and Torricelli (D-NJ).

            I suppose you want to jail all the above or does the fact they have a D behind their name absolve them of the sin??

            Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists
            Also had many key Democrats signed onto it!

            “What about the unaccounted $billions (trillions?) Regularly missing and unaccounted for in the Pentagon’s budget on a regular basis? I guess there’s no readily available face to put on that one so let’s forget about it too. ” -tott

            Seems we already have a group of people who are to hold those using federal funds to account which also includes a fair amount of them Democrats you so love.

            “Let’s see…the wall street parasites who bilked tax payers for billions what blow free market smoke up our asses…” -tott

            Oh you mean the ones Obama loved so much he threw billions of tax payer dollars at?

            Seems you have a serious problem of who can you trust?

          • TiredOfTheTreadmill July 2, 2019 at 1:37 pm #

            You seem to think I am defending Hillary, Obama and Dems. I am not sure why. Perhaps it’s an internet anger thing or the whole conservative thing where a person who doesn’t think as you do must be a Hillary lovin’, Obama lovin’ snowflake. Only black or white in that world. I prefer to cover the full spectrum of coruption, not just one side of it. But hey, keep on building that straw man and kicking his ass. It’s fun to watch.

            I get it, we’ve been so conditioned to play the lesser evil game by the owners of this place that it’s easy to fall into that trap.By all means, keep on tearing up Hillary, Obama and the dems if it makes you feel better. No skin off my back. I’ll just check in on occasion to see how the asylum inmates are doing with their Hillary obsession.

            @tott

            Do I think you are a Hillary fan no I had read that you were not just several posts above.

            It’s all a house of cards get one conviction and they all start ratting each other out.
            Hillary at this point is the Gordian knot to slice at if she gets a trial and loses the entire house of cards falls and real change might just happen.
            If Trump falls it ends there and Washington goes back to the good ol club and the swamp goes back to complete control by K street enticements.

          Not just “imprisoning more of its population by percentage than anywhere else” but in total too.
          As always amerika leads the way, down.
          It also has, compared to other OECD countries, the lowest literacy and the highest perinatal & infant mortality rates, the highest spend for the lowest overall medical care and the worst welfare system.
          Not forgetting the biggie, a higher military expenditure than the rest of the world put together.

      That is correct malthuss, the real important issues, at least to the loony left, are all centered around sexual issues just as Cory Booker reminded us, such as abortion rights for African American trans-sexuals! Jim Kunstler has a long list of what we all might believe are serious miscarriages of justice, but none of them matter at all to the swinging dicks in jockstraps strutting down the main streets of urban America.

    I hope the Republicans on the committee who will be questioning Mueller use your questions, even if they don’t give you credit. I’m sure they will be more intelligent and to the point than any they or their staffs come up with on their own. The exception might be Justin Amash, who would be on the opposite side of the issue.

    By the way, a happy drum corps Canada Day to all of your readers from north of the border! I’m sure they’re watching the events on this side of the border with emotions ranging from wry amusement to dread.

    • Neon Vincent July 1, 2019 at 10:28 am #

      Last week, I asked that the readers here would wish me luck because it was time to make a couple of drinking games. I got a less than enthusiastic reaction, with at least one reader calling it a distraction. Why, thank you, that’s exactly what it was intended to be. It turned out that I found four drinking games already, but no drinks to go along with them. Since I didn’t feel like re-inventing the wheel, but also wanted to fill an empty niche, I suggested drinks for all the candidates in the debates, both Wednesday and Thursday/A>. I plan on being a good environmentalist and recycling them for this month’s debates in Detroit.

      • SoftStarLight July 1, 2019 at 11:58 am #

        I apologize for that Neon Vincent. I wasn’t in a drinking game type of mood when I came across your post last week and so I told you so. But you know that old cliché’ what a difference a day makes. Let alone a week! So now I propose you add grape Everclear jello shots to your game somewhere. But imbibe carefully!!!! Too many and you might not know which game you’re playing or where you’re playing it at ;-).

        • Neon Vincent July 2, 2019 at 5:07 pm #

          No problem, SoftStarLight. All is forgiven. I’ll see about adding Everclear jello shots to the next set of recipes. I think Mike Gravel would be a good candidate for them, pun intended.

      Thank you, Neon, from the CACA land! FYI, on Canada Day we do not watch events in the South. We gather in backyards, on verandas, balconies, rooftops, drink beer and babble about kids, exes and house pets until we become completely incoherent.

      And I wish a happy Fourth of July to you all as well. I have two requests to Americans on the fourth. First, don’t set any fires. 🙂 Second, get back to work updating my habitual websites first thing on Friday. That is all.

    So they’re basically going to reruns until the fall lineup comes out. It’s July now, so that sounds about right. Besides, the NFL will be firing up shortly, so no one will be paying attention to any of this shit either way in another month or two anyway. The smell of Labor Day barbecues and partially spent jet fuel raining down from the low level flyovers is already in the air!

      Did Mr. Nadler summon Mr. Mueller from beach or lake-side to just recite chapter and verse from his report? What would be the point of that? Well, perhaps to whip up enough media froth to refresh the public’s memory of how Comrade Trump stole the 2016 election at the bidding of his Russian handlers. Is that all?

      Reminds me of a local TV show I watch growing up called Jean’s Story Time, wherein a soft-voiced matronly type would read little morality tale stories to us young kiddies, which would be illustrated on camera by some nice, uncontroversial pencil drawings by a studio artist. One can only imagine the wokester horror stories such a format would produce today. Regardless, I think we Baby Boomers are rapidly regressing to our infancy once again, even before we reach the shitting in our Depends adult diapers stage, very possibly due to the manifest horrors we’ve unleashed throughout our lifetimes. Problem is, it appears we’ve infected the younger generations with our insanity as well, as they’re no longer experiencing any semblance of rational adulthood whatsoever.

        Don’t fool yourself even with Mr. Trump pumping the brakes towards some conflict in the Middle East or Venezuela our military is ramping up readiness, the media is all but beating the drums and both sides of the aisle are as well.

            The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter! Look what you get for around a $100,000,000 a copy!!! Made in the USA!!!

            “Over the past several years, U.S. Defense Department leaders have gone from citing technical problems as their biggest concern for the F-35 program to bemoaning the expense of buying and sustaining the aircraft.

            But the reality may be worse. According to documents exclusively obtained by Defense News, the F-35 continues to be marred by flaws and glitches that, if left unfixed, could create risks to pilot safety and call into question the fighter jet’s ability to accomplish key parts of its mission:

            F-35B and F-35C pilots, compelled to observe limitations on airspeed to avoid damage to the F-35’s airframe or stealth coating. Cockpit pressure spikes that cause “excruciating” ear and sinus pain. Issues with the helmet-mounted display and night vision camera that contribute to the difficulty of landing the F-35C on an aircraft carrier.

            Gotta keep her throttled down as the old hag can’t handle too much speed!!! So sad. JDH

            Just chiming in here from Indonesia, where a nationalist just got cheated out of the Presidential election by a DS puppet. Prabowo Subianto commanded Special Forces under Suharto; his grandfather founded the first state bank and his father served as a minister in the cabinet twice.

            Millions of votes were “lost”, ballots marked up beforehand, government employees (including police and state company staff) told in no uncertain terms who to vote for, huge gushes of state funds for “development” doled out to village headmen days before the election.

            The conglomerates (mostly ethnic Chinese, many crooked), banksters,multinational thugs and thieves currently doing their sugar mafia or salt mafia or beef mafia deals all ganged up to cheat Prabowo out of his 52% win. They need a nice malleable front man to enable them to keep up the swindle.

          People flatter themselves to imagine the deep state is “American” and is working to score in this country. The deep state is what has brought the country to its present impoverishment.
          In Washington, everyone works toward acquiring power for self, their appointed office, and of course, MONEY. They are easily maneuvered by outside pressure. If you have enough money, and deep state has all the money it needs, you can get anything passed in DC.
          A second member of the dem debate, candidate Williamson, has acknowledged that her mic was also cut off during the debate. Knowing this, one has to ask, was Trump truly the people’s choice? Ignore the TV talking heads’ reaction, but focus on what CNN’s Jeff Zucker said about that campaign: he loved it, the ratings were through the roof. That was his price, personal and career aggrandizement, and of course, MONEY.

          We settle for Monday morning quarterbacking of the doings in government. Most folks are simply looking for some affirmation that what they can plainly see will be confirmed. We live in a world of cognitive dissonance.

          • SoftStarLight July 1, 2019 at 12:13 pm #

            Very good point!!!! The minions of the Deep State are operating for personal enrichment and empowerment. Their preeminent concerns being holding onto power for as long as possible and making the most money from positions of advantage for as long as possible. And each step that each individual takes in pursuit of these goals ironically works to strengthen the Deep State’s scope and reach. So it makes sense that all of the political shenanigans are intended to be entertainment, as well as, a fabrication of a faux political/ideological dichotomy that zaps the energy of the citizenry with circular and meaningless arguments over a perceived reality that doesn’t actually exist at the highest levels.

    The democrats are offering human sacrifices to win the White House. It is their only hope and means to shut down investigations into their collusion to overthrow the legally elected president. They have a good chance of pulling it off. The electorate is not interested in Trumpgate or AOC or pride day. They are scared to death that a job will be lost and that a car will get repo’d. A Democrat can win based on free shit and a jubilee year on school debt and who knows what else. I don’t think anyone cares now about anything other than survival in a sinking economy. And it is going down.

    • JohnAZ July 1, 2019 at 10:52 am #

      We have witnessed the reinflation of the economy from the debacle of 2008. It is just starting, manufacturing is the core of every good economy. China knew this when the stole and acquired a lot of the US manufacturing sector. However, manufacturing in the US is still diminutive due to international forces in trade. That is why I am pro tariff. For the economy to continue to grow unfettered by regulation and high taxes, manufacturing needs to grow and grow significantly. Then the economic multiplier will enlarge the service sector. National security is definitely in jeopardy if we cannot even build our weapons systems due to no raw materials.

      If Trump’s recovery continues, who loses? Big question!

      The globalists are losing with every dollar produced in the country. Every dollar spent here instead of globally grows the US. A few more years of this, the internationalists will be going bankrupt trying to keep their ship afloat. When they go, so goes drugs, and human trafficking.

      Which is why the main proponents of trying to suppress the economy, the Deep State and their masters in the global neo liberals HAVE to shut down Trump’s wing in 2020. We are witnessing a war for control of the world! Our main enemies in the war are domestic!

        “…manufacturing is the core of every good economy. China knew this when the stole and acquired a lot of the US manufacturing sector.”

        This whole bullshit narrative of how the Chinese STOLE the US manufacturing base is just such obvious hog-wash.

        For example, Apple is (or was originally) a US corporation, no?
        Most of the shareholders are American or American fund managers, no?
        How was Apple STOLEN by China when the shareholders, in demanding the biggest profit that could possibly be squeezed out of their capital, opted to move the manufacturing to China?

        Tariffs are bullshit also and will cause the US economy way more harm than you can imagine, while you start paying more as the tariffs take effect, onceteh importrs can no longer carry the impost.

      • benr July 5, 2019 at 9:14 am #

        @majella

        Companies move there and then China forces them to give up data on their companies.
        Take Huffy the once great American bike manufacture within a short period of time they moved to China and went out of business.
        Huffy was acquired by China for pennies on the dollar and is now 100% Chinese.

      >>> “… into their collusion to overthrow the legally elected president.”

      Many, including the Deep State, an Ex-president, the Left, etc. don’t agree with your assessment. Take Russian interference out of the picture for the 77,000 votes in the upper Midwest and what do you have? I’m not at all sure anyone knows the answer to that one.

      “Former President Jimmy Carter suggested Friday that a full investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election would show that Donald Trump didn’t win the presidency.

      “There’s no doubt that the Russians did interfere in the election. And I think the interference, although not yet quantified, if fully investigated would show that Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016. He lost the election and he was put into office because the Russians interfered on his behalf,” Carter said at the Carter Center’s retreat in Leesburg, Virginia.
      Asked if he believes Trump is an illegitimate president, Carter paused for a moment.
      “Based on what I just said, which I can’t retract,” Carter said to audience laughter.
      Jimmy Carter, Trump discuss administration's China trade talks
      Jimmy Carter, Trump discuss administration’s China trade talks
      Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report found that Russia waged a “sweeping and systematic” influence campaign during the 2016 election with the goal of electing Trump, but did not establish a conspiracy between Trump’s campaign and Moscow.”

      Old Jimmy has worked as an election “verifier” all over the world. I’m just saying…

      • JohnAZ July 1, 2019 at 12:01 pm #

        Russian interference in the upper Midwest?

        Wasn’t here a recount right after the election? It verified all the counts!

        What did the Russians do to interfere? No one has proven anything was done. We are just supposed to the the word of our intelligence community.

        The same intelligence community that is about to be clobbered by investigators for their interference in the 2016 election.

        Nice try, jdhines and Jimmy Carter.

            That is probably true, but his supposition is not without merit. I would say the Reds DID influence the 2016 election and it is possible (but not at all certain) that they were successful.

            At any rate, there is a question mark, and not just by Jimmy, that GGG’s election is not legit and it certainly was not of the same caliber as say, Ronnie’s 1980 win.

          No doubt Jimmy is getting upper there…. I hope I am doing that well at 94 and …… well, I also hope I make it to 94.

          Jimmy wasn’t saying that he thought ballots were changed by Russkies, he was saying he believes the money that was spent on bogus, conflicting and false social media posts likely influenced, at least, 77,000 pro-GGG votes in the Electoral college, when you look at the 3,000,000 surplus Hillary won in the general.

          Statistically, it is quite plausible the the Reds did have some influence, but it is NOT provable, so the electoral college “win” stands. I mean the Russians are deceptive, crafty, duplicitous, etc., but they are not stupid. The wouldn’t spend time and resources on all the interference if it wasn’t effective, right?

            Surely – quite easy. How about the receipts from Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. etc. for the money the Reds spent (millions$ by the way) buying advertising on behalf of the Trumpster? As testified to by those companies in open hearings before congress and detailed in Herr Mueller’s prosecuting document (v. 2).

            Please keep in mind, Trumpster only had to “flip,” 77,000 votes in the Upper Midwest (3 states as you will recall) and further, That HRH Hillary beat him by 3,000,000 (count ’em) votes in the popular vote. This of course implies, that the Trumpster is not so popular as witnessed by his inaugural crowd size when compared to the gargantuan crowds enjoyed by Mr. Landslide, President Barack Hussein Obama!

            Many rubes nationwide sucked those ads up like there was not going to be a tomorrow. Trumpster, even at this late date, says he would gladly accept help from foreign (read Russkies) for 2020. There you have it in a nutshell, as it were.

            There, evidence, signed sealed and delivered and you are welcome! What does this prove? That it is entirely possible that the Trumpster is, as Pres. Carter has stated, an illegitimate, undeserving, usurper of the office of President of The USA and further, that the American people have, quite possibly, been flim flammed by a conman of the highest order. That’s what it proves.

        Did Russia force Hillary Clinton to destroy her various devices with hammers and use BleachBit to scrub her devices which was an obstruction of justice?

        Did Russia force Hillary Clinton to do all kinds of shady things with The Clinton Foundation while Secretary of State taking millions of dollars from foreign governments then making dirty “quid pro quo” deals with them? Was it Russia that forced Hillary and Bill Clinton to screw Haiti for millions of dollars too?

        And Russia obviously forced Bill Clinton to go to Moscow for a twenty minute speech and pay him a cool half a mil for it? Right?

        And Russia obviously forced Hillary Clinton to give many speeches to Wall Street banksters for major $$ then try to deceive the voters about what she said to them?? Right. I could just see Putin pulling her strings making Hillary call Trump supporters “a basket of deplorables”.

          It’s a joke indeed as it is completely false. let’s get our facts straight. No fake news aloud. Saying it does not make it so. Come on now, be real and don’t lie to yourself.

          “RUSSIA SPENT $1.25M PER MONTH ON ADS, ACTED LIKE AN AD AGENCY: MUELLER”

          “U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller unveiled the details of an allegedly widespread and coordinated campaign by Russians to influence the U.S. presidential election in favor of Donald Trump, delivering on his initial mandate by the Justice Department.

          In an indictment announced Friday in Washington, Mueller describes a years-long, multimillion-dollar conspiracy by hundreds of Russians aimed at criticizing Hillary Clinton and supporting Senator Bernie Sanders and Trump. Mueller charged 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities and accused them of defrauding the U.S. government by interfering with the political process.

          Those involved spent some $1.25 million per month on ad campaigns and measured their efforts much as an ad agency would, according to the indictment. It says the group kept track of metrics like views and comments, and measured engagement.

          Prosecutors provided a remarkably detailed picture of how Russians used social media, fake rallies and secretive operatives in the U.S. to create “political intensity” by backing radical groups, opposition social movements and disaffected voters. The outreach from the Russians included direct contact with over 100 Americans.”

            Ah how that must gall at her and you to lose to Trump a former DEMOCRAT turned traitor to the party. The unforgivable sin of turn coating and of course if he will turn on party it stands to reason he is a traitor to the country right??

            Russia can spend a trillion on ads as far as I know its perfectly legal.

            According to some Hillary spending money to get a faux dossier FROM FOREIGN INTELIGENCE SERVICES is ok but not for Trump!
            No never colluding with Russia is only ok for Democrats!
            As it applies to Trump his rotund orangeness he must be fried in boiling oil.
            According to some he should be impeached and eventually jailed while the Empress is anointed up on high for gracing us with her putrid pretense of actually caring about Americans. Cankles is loving and caring after all.

But oh well, they are! The Republicans never seriously challenged the Clintons reign of power. And I am still trying to figure out how Trump’s election helped Russia. Our relationship with Russia is more strained now than when Obama was President. We were practically cozy with Russia at that point.

            Once again, missing the point, definitely missing the point. She, and I by proxy, did not lose to he (said rube) “who cannot construct a simple sentence” (your words, not mine), but rather we lost to the formidable and devious Russian (Bot Reds).

            All the unreasonable complaints as to why Mr. Trump is not fit for the office.
            Trying to establish where in mind space you really are.
            With that I clearly see peddling a narrative that many people are saying but that has no actual real world relevance.

            Hillary lost because she sucked, she mismanaged her campaign, and appeared physically as well as emotionally ill. She used words like deplorable and alienated a possible base of users. She lost because she was arrogant and it was her time only she failed in execution and management.
            The Russians had precious little to do with her loss.
            Trump out worked her and outsmarted her.

            Do try to keep up Mr. Hines your perspective is echoed endlessly all over the mainstream media but that does not mean it’s true or even coherent.
            Russian bots did not flip the bits on the voting machines for Trump nor did they hack the brains of delegates in the electoral college. Wish full thinking as to the why no never that Hillary just got out hustled!

    >>> Mr. Nadler’s majority Democrat members are not the only ones who get to ask questions. Did the Chairman forget that?

    No he didn’t forget. But, as Chairman, Nadler can effectively nullify questions he doesn’t like. He can interrupt, break any momentum, declare a member out of order, declare that the witness does not have to answer, etc.

    And since only the Chairman can recommend a witness for Contempt of Congress, Mueller is safe in the knowledge that his prearranged script with Nadler will be adhered to.

    The conservative press will of course report the questions Mueller refused to answer. The MSM won’t mention it at all. So it didn’t happen.

      Social Gospel postulates that Man can create Heaven on Earth by his own hands without God. Science chimes in and says Yes, we can – with technology, or even modification of the human body or genome.

          Isn’t the Old Testament reference actually a wolf rather than a lion? I believe both prophecies from the Old and New Testament refer to Christ establishing His Kingdom here on Earth. Is that correct? In any case, it is true that the Western world has replaced Christianity with Science and Reason. Our new religion is Science and the expectation is that Science will solve all of our problems and make us like gods. In a way its like a continuation of that original deception since it can never be.

          • GreenAlba July 2, 2019 at 3:38 pm #

            Science will not solve all our problems and it will not make us like gods. We’re still better paying attention to science, though (certainly rather than business people or politicians), but the word ‘belief’ is a category error in this context often made by people who don’t like what science tells them.

            It’s a manipulative deliberate error that serves their purpose well, given how most people don’t think very deeply about the meanings of words.

            A little confused here – what ‘original deception’? As I read it, you’re referring to the deception of the bible and ‘Christ’ as a redeeming arm of the trinity godhead.

            If that’s what you mean then hurray for you! You’ve got it! But I’m thinking that’s unlikely.

          • SoftStarLight July 4, 2019 at 1:46 am #

            Of course many great advances in civilization have been made because of science. Science has its place just like religion does. But the two do not have to be exclusive. That is a false choice that has been foisted onto society. It’s so unimaginative and uncreative too in my opinion. And btw there are scientists who believe in God.

            And the original deception is simply a reference to the lie that the Devil told in the Garden of Eden. You should read Genesis to refresh your memory.

            “And the original deception is simply a reference to the lie that the Devil told in the Garden of Eden. You should read Genesis to refresh your memory.”

            Since it’s just a creation myth among many, it would be more honest and accurate to put ‘original deception’ in inverted commas, don’t you think? At best it’s metaphorical.

          • GreenAlba July 4, 2019 at 8:34 am #

            We are lovers of metaphor as a species. We tell each other stories to try to understand our existence. That’s art. The hard stuff is science, which seems to have less difficulty updating itself when new understandings arise, through hard work. Nostalgia has a strong hold on people, because we like our comfort zones.

    American caravan arrives in Canadian ‘birthplace of insulin’ for cheaper medicine

    ca.reuters.com/article/topNews/idCAKCN1TU0T4-OCATP

    “TORONTO (Reuters) – A self-declared ‘caravan’ of Americans bused across the Canada-U.S. border on Saturday, seeking affordable prices for insulin and raising awareness of ‘the insulin price crisis’ in the United States.

    “The group called Caravan to Canada started the journey from Minneapolis, Minnesota on Friday, and stopped at London, Ontario on Saturday, to purchase life-saving type 1 diabetes medication at a pharmacy.

    “The caravan numbers at approximately 20 people, according to Nicole Smith-Holt, a member of the group. Smith-Holt said her 26-year-old son died in June 2017 because he was forced to ration insulin due to the high cost [emphasis added]. This is Smith-Holt’s second time on the caravan.

    “Caravan to Canada trekked the border in May for the same reasons, which Holt-Smith said was smaller than the group this week. She said Americans have gone to countries like Mexico and Canada for more affordable medications in the past and continue to do so.

    “The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported in May that Canadian pharmacists have seen a ‘quiet resurgence’ in Americans coming to Canada looking for cheaper pharmaceuticals.”

    It may surprise some of you to learn a couple of things about me: (a) my sister used to work as a Canadian border guard, a job that included turning people back as she deemed appropriate, taking others into custody, performing invasive searches, and much else; and (b) I completely approve of the work she did.

    I can approve of it because I trust that the work was performed in a manner that was humane, and not needlessly cruel. That my sister, her colleagues, and the authority they represented recognized the humanity of every border crosser they dealt with, and didn’t conceive of them as vermin without rights. I’m reasonably assured of these things because we’re not ruled by dead-eyed ghouls), at least not yet.

    Another reason we weren’t skeered, when a caravan of needy foreigners from south of us arrived at our borders, is because the economic injustice that had driven them to us was something we recognized. Treating people like garbage as a deterrent to others is one of the shittiest policies in the long, dismal history of shitty policies. If the USA actually wants peace and order along its southern border, then it needs to address the causes that drive people to leave their homes and risk a desperate bid to make it north. Latin America needs a Marshall Plan, not more of the same abuse, imperialism and malign neglect from El Norte that turned it into a place people need to escape from.

    You all should stop treating your southern neighbours as a semi-colonial backwater and start helping them to become peaceful, prosperous nations instead. And we up here in Canada should help out. It’s the neighbourly thing to do.

      Lets face it Canada’s economy is just not that big.
      What are you going to do when peoples rent, food costs, gas, car insurance, electricity bills, water bills and natural gas bills sky rockets and quality of life plummets as a result of higher then normal demand? How about when there are thousands of homeless people living in tent cities all over the place because they have been priced out of anything resembling housing again as a result of illegal aliens pooling money and living 20 deep in the same dwelling?

      Fine and dandy to say all that you say until reality sets in and there is a limit to just how many people a country can handle.
      The Untied States hit that number years ago your time is coming.

      • Majella July 2, 2019 at 10:35 pm #

        The ‘size’ of an economy is directly related to population.

        Population USA 329,000,000; Canada 37;000,000 – or 11% of the size of teh USA

        GDP (a flawed measure but consistent) USA $20 trillion; Canada $1.7 trillion or 8.5% of the size of the USA.

        So, the differences between economy & population is measurable but not disproportionate – in fact, you could apply rounding on the Canadian stats & come up with 9% on both measures, therefore roughly equal.

        Yet when you look at what the Canadian taxpayer gets for their Loonies compared to your average Joe Sixpack, there’s a stunning difference.

        Canadian healthcare as %age of GDP is 10.5% while the USA spends in excess of 17% and yet more than 10% of the citizenry (let alone the illegal immigrants) have no access to healthcare.

        • benr July 3, 2019 at 12:10 pm #

          Yea except Canadas military is tiny. They also have the US border patrol defending their borders while porous there is an entire large country between them and the poorer neighbors to the south.
          Why because they know America is defending them.
          If Canada actually had to field a military to defend itself that “healthcare” would be far under funded and it will be VERY soon.

          Your gimme healthcare socialist pabulum and gruel never stops does it and yet you said you make 500k a year so healthcare should not be an issue for you and yours….right?

          • Exscotticus July 3, 2019 at 2:31 pm #

            Exactly. Even our resident Canuck, Elrond, freely admits that the USA effectively subsidizes Canada’s defense, leaving Canada with significantly more to spend on social services.

            Majella’s comparison is apples and oranges.

          • Elrond Hubbard July 3, 2019 at 2:58 pm #

            Yup. We have oceans on three points of the compass, and you guys on the fourth. Canada is The Shire.

            Except, what that means is that the USA determines Canada’s fate, especially given the huge disparities in population and ability to project force. What’s really fortunate is that you don’t treat us the way you treat your southern and Caribbean neighbours. For that, we can thank the British for being sturdier than the Spanish during the age of imperialism.

            Had we been fending for ourselves around the time you guys got that piratical gleam in your eye, either Canada would be a lot more like Guatemala or I would be paying taxes to Washington, D.C.. Neither prospect fills me with glee.

          • Majella July 3, 2019 at 9:09 pm #

            Okay, benr – I’ll give you that one – there is ACCESS to healthcare for the uninsured and the indigent, fair enough.

            But these are the people who cannot afford to carry even the shittiest of insurance plans, or who perhaps could have but due to an unforeseen expense could no longer afford it.

            But let’s be clear on the distinctions: showing up at an emergency room without insurance – IF you qualify as ’emergency’ (spurting wound, flu,), then you’ll receive treatment, but you won’t get to hang around for long. You’ll receive the minimum necessary and be shuffled away asap.

            Seeking urgent – but not emergency – treatment – will cost you, unless you can find a free community clinic. The bill won’t go away…it will be a debt the unfortunate seeking treatment have to drag around like a shackle.

            But the fact remains that 13% (44 million) of the US population doesn’t have/cannot afford even basic medical insurance.

            I recall you recently stating how your premium has doubled (‘under Obamacare’ naturally) to $800 per month. Are you happy with the coverage, co-pays, deductibles etc? Do you think you get value for your huge premium bucks? And all this is ON TOP of your huge (‘layered’, whatever that means) tax burden? Hmm.

            The fact that my household pays tax on around $500K of GP a year (so it’s definitely MY dime too) doesn’t make me immune to feeling sympathy with those whose circumstances are reduced and are simply treated as being third-class citizens by right-wing assholes who scream “free stuff for all will destroy this country!” and other such vacant unthinking bullshit.

            Exscotticus: You’re absolutely correct, and I commend you on your awareness of this urgent issue.

            Perhaps you’re also aware that Canada’s inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women and girls (MMIWG) recently rendered its final report:

            mmiwg-ffada.ca/final-report/

            The report has generated considerable controversy because it found, in the words of Chief Commissioner Marion Buller, that “The hard truth is that we live in a country whose laws and institutions perpetuate violations of fundamental rights, amounting to a genocide against Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA people.” [Emphasis added.]

            Genocide is a heavyweight charge to make against any country, let alone one like Canada that promotes a preferred image of itself as peaceful and enlightened. But the report was commissioned by Canada’s federal government, and its conclusions about the ongoing legacy of settler colonialism in North America are serious ones, having implications for both our countries.

            Glad we agree. So please don’t abuse language and misapply the term to score bona fides with your social circle. Millions of people are detained at borders around the world. And those millions are probably not getting their UN-mandated metric squeeze of toothpaste. It’s not genocide. If you’re going to bandy that term around, you better back it up with overwhelming evidence.

      @Elrond,

      A 20-man caravan, eh? That’s your straw man? Try 100,000 a month including children and some carrying diseases from the stone age. Oh and criminals mixed in as well.

      Canada’s tune toward migrants changed quite rapidly when its borders were inundated with Haitians and Nigerians. In fact, Canada sent its immigration and refugee minister to Nigeria, asking the Nigerian government to help discourage its citizens from crossing into Canada, and asking the United States to deny visas to people who might then go to Canada. Ouch! So much for “recognizing the humanity” and all your other self-righteous tripe.

        Exscotticus: Stop playing tu quoque. Everything I’m saying boils down to two points:

        1. Migrants at your southern border are a problem of the USA’s own making. The United States should recognize this fact, which is a fact, and start doing something to correct the conditions that the USA itself created. For details about how this is a problem the USA created for itself, read my response to RIB below.

        2. In the meantime, the USA must stop treating migrants like
        animals. Stop separating families, stop confining children without basic sanitation, stop stockpiling people outdoors without shelter. This is criminal behaviour committed by the USA against helpless people. You have an obligation to treat them decently, provide food, clothing and shelter, and judge their cases according to relevant international standards. If this is a burden you don’t want, then I say, tough titty. Man up and do what’s right.

        Note what I’m not saying: I’m not saying the USA must let migrants in. I’m not saying the USA should not police its borders. What I am saying: stop treating these human beings the way you’re treating them. This United States must meet minimum humanitarian standards and enact the rule of law.

      • Exscotticus July 1, 2019 at 9:50 pm #

        >>> Migrants at your southern border are a problem of the USA’s own making.

        Agreed. We saw a great example at the Dem debates, where every single candidate raised their hand for illegal immigrant healthcare at American taxpayer expense. Where every candidate supports open borders in everything but name. All of this serves to encourage more of the same.

        >>> In the meantime, the USA must stop treating migrants like
        animals.

        Animals? Oh that’s right; some kids didn’t get their toothpaste. The horror!

        Meanwhile, perhaps you should focus on your own country before you criticize others…

        The Canadian holding centres, which are off limits to the public, resemble medium-security prisons. They are surrounded by razor-wire fences and kept under surveillance by guards.

        There are three such facilities across Canada, in Vancouver, Toronto, and Laval, Que. In some provinces, asylum seekers are detained in prisons.

        Wait until you have 100k migrants slamming up against your border, and your Lefty leaders unwilling to even acknowledge that there’s a crisis, and certainly unwilling to do anything about it but encourage more of the same, before you embarrass yourself with more of your hypocritical moral platitudes.

        Not once in all your drivel about “animals” and “human rights” do you hold immigrants themselves responsible. Who told them to have children when they can’t even feed themselves? Who supports and encourages their reckless and irresponsible breeder lifestyles that routinely put children in harm’s way?

        Yes—that would be people like you.

        • Majella July 4, 2019 at 8:45 pm #

          So, as far as you’re concerned, it’s all THEIR OWN FAULT and literal genocide is an acceptable solution.

          • benr July 5, 2019 at 9:18 am #

            Literal Genocide?
            Are you kidding?
            Lord I hope so.
            The leftist media is shrieking about things they have not even investigated as usual.
            I can’t speak for Canada but in the US the conditions are crowded and not ideal but Genocide get a grip.

          • Exscotticus July 5, 2019 at 2:19 pm #

            Yes, Majella, it’s THEIR OWN FAULT for having children they can’t afford to feed. I would think that would be obvious. Then again, I may have gone a bridge too far in assuming that you understand how procreation works. You certainly haven’t grasped the concept of personal responsibility.

            No, Majella, no one but YOU has said anything about genocide. FYI, the destruction of language was a key concept in Orwell’s 1984. You ought to read it, as your misuse of the term, genocide, is a good example.

            When you throw out terms inappropriately, and try to generalize them to the point where they no longer convey their original meanings, you also normalize the actions they convey. You cheapen and degrade something that should not be taken lightly.

    • RIB July 1, 2019 at 3:51 pm #

      Explain to me why it’s the obligation of the United States to fix the problems of the countries south of the border, Elrond? I bet you’re one of the first people to scream bloody murder if the United States” stick’s it’s nose in the affairs of other countries. Why no ask the Chinese to do it? Why not ask the European Union to do it?

      • Elrond Hubbard July 1, 2019 at 5:11 pm #

        RIB, the obligation stems from a long history, which has already happened, of the United States “sticking its nose in the affairs” of Central America. This history, which you can actually learn about if you care about the truth, is what produced the conditions that are currently driving people to your southern border.

        Here you go, cubby:

        medium.com/s/story/timeline-us-intervention-central-america-a9bea9ebc148

        Go ahead, read it. There’s a pretty extensive timeline, so I’ll sum up: as far as the U.S. government and U.S. business interests are concerned, Central America countries is there to provide cheap goods, period. An economy based on supplying cheap export goods is an economy that can’t develop and where most people are poor, permanently. From time to time, someone in one of those countries gets the crazy idea that they should be producing for themselves and building their own economy. When that happens, they either get put down, using arms supplied by the USA; or if they manage to succeed, their harbours get mined and the US funds local murderers to make life impossible. All of this creates chaos, opening up power vacuums that get filled up by militias, drug cartels, and so forth. Meanwhile, observers from the wealthy countries go tsk tsk at the chaos, blaming the very people they’re keeping under their thumbs.

        You all have been stirring shit up in Central America for over a century in the name of cheap fruit and coffee. You blame your victims for conditions that are the consequence of your own actions. And now you’re complaining about a mess at your southern border, caused by people fleeing the conditions you created. That’s what makes this your obligation, RIB. Question asked, question answered.

        If anyone answers this, don’t bitch at me or make some sorry attempt at derision. Read the article and show that you’ve read it. Then write something that shows you understand the facts as they are.

        • RIB July 1, 2019 at 5:43 pm #

          WOW! I guess I don’t have to ask the Canuck how he feels about reparations

          • Majella July 1, 2019 at 10:09 pm #

            Thanks, Elrond.

            It’s not an easy read…just the El Salvador story stretching from 1932 to 2015 was uke-making, especially when Ike, the Saviour of the Free World in WW2, opposed free & fair elections if it meant a left-wing government that might, you know, care for its people more than for the corporatist rapers & pillagers.

            The most recent entry SMACKS of quadruplicate hypocrisy in the era of Trump tariffs:

            “2015: Under the tariff reduction model of CAFTA-DR, all U.S. industrial and commercial goods enter El Salvador duty free, creating impossible conditions for domestic industry to compete. As of 2016, the country had a negative trade balance of $4.18 billion.”

          • Majella July 1, 2019 at 10:13 pm #

            The article only covers three countries – Guatemala, Honduras & El Salvador. It would double its size if it added even a similarly brief summary of the US state/corporate crimes against Nicaragua.

          • Majella July 1, 2019 at 10:13 pm #

            So, RIB – DO you have an answer to Elrond’s question?

            That was then this is now.
            Are you somehow responsible for the debts or sins of your parents grandparents and last forefathers of the country?
            What country did you bail on to come to America you know the country you bash and want to destroy with Socialist policies?

            Are you trying to say those same leftwing governments care about their people or are even in a position to make life better? You know like the wonderful loving embrace of Say Cuba or Venezuela? I wonder how it’s going for even the “rich” down there I hear they have managed to clean out all the dogs, cats and rats and have collectively lost an average of 25 pounds. Ah the love of a leftwing government with that kind of love you might as well pick up a case of herpes as well.

            In doing so you reveal just how out of touch with reality you are.
            Guatemala, Honduras & El Salvador all have one thing in common extreme poverty, epic corruption and an uneducated people or peasant class they exploit to no end.

            American foreign policy vis a vis the Monroe doctrine or even the no transfer principle allowed some amount of self determination from Mexico to Argentina what they did with it was on them.

            You burble on about ‘property rights’ as if the US food corps directly indicted the article Elrond linked to (which I’m guessing you STILL haven’t read), went in and made fair&esquire deals with the ‘owners’. The facts are blindingly different – they south out and support corrupt politicians/military juntas and did deals with THEM. Part of the deal was significant kick-backs as long as the favoured regime kept the peasants ‘in line’ and allowed starvation wages & horrific & dangerous working conditions -BY LAW. This kept the profitability as high as it could be.

            Whenever a populist movement said ‘Enough!’ It would be crushed. If such a populist movement got lucky – viz the Sandinistas in Nicuargua – and got power, very poseible resource (clandestine, usually) was deployed to crush it, along with smearing the movement as ‘commie terrorists’ while the kill-squads for Ronnie Raygun were ‘freedom fighters’.

            The author of Elrond’s historical article would not fit your expectations, being of Asian extraction and studying at Brown University (so clearly he’s a lying, leftist SJW of no account whatsoever).

          Absolute post hoc ergo propter hoc nonsense.

          Using your specious logic, it is Spain and not the USA that is responsible for the caravans, since they “stirred up shit” when they decided to colonize the entire area. Prior to colonization, these murderous cannibal cultures (Aztec, Mayan, and Inca) were perfectly happy playing soccer with human heads before the conquistadors arrived and put an end to it. The horror! But please Elrond, go ahead and argue that Spain should NOT have “stirred up shit”, and that the indigenous populations should be permitted to return to the old ways. Maybe they could take a vote!

          Once again you lay the blame for the entire world’s woes at America’s doorstep. You start your historical analysis when it’s most convenient for you, ignoring the massive contributions and sacrifice the USA has made for the Third World. And nowhere in your analysis are Central or South Americans responsible for their own actions. Nowhere do you hold migrants responsible for their own irresponsible breeder culture lifestyles that promote socialist dictators and create generational dependency for their sustenance.

          As the old saw goes ‘As ye sow, so shall ye reap’.

Just like good old Venezuela by all reports their gold was shipped off to Mother Russia for safe keeping not to long ago. Their loving DICKTATOR made it so to line his own rats nest in fear of being deposed.

            Like a pot full of crabs as soon as one looks to be getting out the others drag them back down and so it goes endlessly in these countries. That is until one gets way ahead and then he kicks everyone in the face he does not like or who does not revere them like a God.

            Is it right to take land form someone that lawfully paid for it ever?

        There is zero obligation to do anything. As if the ordinary everyday American has any leverage to change what rogue agencies and assets do on behalf of the Global Elite under the official auspices of the US military or whatever. You love the United Nations when they promote LGBTQIA rights in Africa or subsidize women owned businesses in Laos. But you don’t like it when the UN is deeply involved in regime change or embroiled and entangled in conflict.
        Which is often. The Elite in Canada have flourished along with the American Elite for many many years now. Do you translate this to mean that ordinary Canadians need to feed, cloth, and house migrants and essentially pay the price for the misdeeds of the Elite?

    Good morning CFNers.

    How about this suggestion for a fine Monday

    The Trumpers and the Biden Delaney Dems are being forced together by the extremist nuts on both the right and left. The ldiots in Portland are the latest example. It is definitely starting to warm up again. Remember who is funding Antifa.

    The moderates are going to have to reconcile to prevent America’s demise.

    So a new two party system may emerge with the Trumpers and moderate Dems in one party and the nuts either merging in their anti-American globalist doctrine or staying separate Left and Right. The latter would be fatal for both. This will not occur without lots of violence.

    Also, it will occur with or without DJT. He is a strong rallying point for the moderate, anti Deep State factions but this change extends beyond him. His successor may be being groomed now. ???

    It will start when the Leftist Democrats drum Biden out this fall. What will Biden do when the Leftists start to tear his America apart?

    Or maybe not!

    • Ol' Scratch July 1, 2019 at 11:17 am #

      Except that Biden is globalist to his core. He only appears to be moderate. Mostly, he’s just vacant. The lights appear to be on – probably just from holes in the roof – but the house has been empty for years.

      • JohnAZ July 1, 2019 at 11:48 am #

        Ha, love your description.

        Biden is what his puppet masters tell him to be. I agree with you, trying to keep all his directions straight may be too much for him to handle.

        There are many more moderate Dems out there, a lot of them won House seats in 2018. Biden has to break from the Obama Clinton mold. I doubt he has the guts but we will see.

        The Moderate Dems need a leader, perhaps Trumps’s successor.

        Not possible?

        How many folks thought that Trump would lay the ground work for cooperation with NOKO, China. And maybe Iran and Russia.

If it has hardened you get a head ache like Andrew Ngo now in hospital with a brain bleed.

        Poly Sci won’t teach it – even at the College level – so your confusion is understandable. It makes too much sense so they’ve encouraged its morph into a mere “snarl” word. But you’re a masterful man and I assume one who wishes to see past what is given to children. Hope so anyway.

          I have stated several times many who decry fascism don’t even know what it really is or was and that it has many forms and flavors some less wholesome than others.

            Fascism is just a European word for Nationalism. All Nations are established by violence (and yes there are other factors) and maintained by violence or the threat of it. The Left knows that. The Right – un-fucking-believably – does not. They’ve made fools out of the Right for generations now.

            Of course they’re hypocrites. As Sun Tzu said, War is deception. A Raccoon was waltzing up to big Tom Cat on my porch, just whistling Old Man River or something. The Tom wasn’t fooled – hissing and swatting at him. Many have said Pit Bulls pretend to be friendly even as they ready for attack. Thank God for the Alt-Right who understand these things.

            It’s just so disappointing too Ben because you recognize that tribalism is natural and that racism is inherent. But you fall short of embracing these realities by stating that your ultimate goal is essentially color blindness as you recognize good and bad in all races. But that is a no-brainer since of course you have good and bad in all groups. But what of your group? You don’t have to dislike other races or consider all non-Whites to be less than simply because you choose to embrace your White Identity. That’s a false choice that society pretends exists. You can love all people and still be dedicated to your race. The sooner all Whites come to this realization the better.

      China is fully implementing the social credit system next year. Once in effect an individual’s score will effect everything from their purchasing power to where they can and cannot travel. I don’t doubt for one second that China is just the laboratory for this. The Globalists intend to use this system to govern the entire planet if they can indeed pull it off. The whole 5G implementation is part of this. Now that they have the population not only dependent upon but excited about every new little electronic gadget and digital device it will be much easier to convince people to give up all of their autonomy to AI and the internet of things. That is what progress is after all right? And god knows there must be progress at any and all costs!

          Yes I do believe the chip is part of it and will ultimately determine who is in and who is out. It will especially effect one’s ability to buy and sell in a cashless society. There will be no real way of escape at that point other than dropping off the grid altogether if possible.

    For starters, it would be good to recall the initial four pages of Attorney General Barr, summing up the preliminary results of a 2-year investigation by his friend Mueller, which Barr published the day after Mueller presented him a 500 page report.

    And according to these 4 pages, Mueller didn’t find convincing evidence of Trump’s election campaign cooperation with Russian intelligence, and the evidence that Trump’s attempts to obstruct “justice” (by “justice” they understand an investigation of a crime he didn’t commit) that Mueller’s investigation was able to find is not enough for a court of law.

    And after reading aforementioned four pages of Mueller’s friend Barr, I right away assumed that they do not absolve Trump from accusations of collaborating with Russian intelligence, they absolve Mueller from accusations of participating in a plot – an attempt to overthrow the lawfully elected US President.

    And I can understand Mueller – his position is just awful. He is cleared of these charges thanks to his friendship with Attorney General Barr, and the people whom he led and whom he involved in this story are now forced to answer questions from John Durham investigating a crime for which an electric chair or lethal injection is prescribed in the US.

    And the reason Mueller changed his mind and agreed to testify in Congress is that he afraid of Hillary Clinton – his Fuhrer – more than he is afraid of electric chair.

    Jim,

    I know this is off-topic, but have you checked your books’ listings on Amazon recently?

    It has “A History of the Future” as the first book in the series, and “World Made By Hand” as number three; the exact opposite of there respective places. New readers would be rather confused if they purchased them in this order.

    Maybe you have already seen this and contacted them, but then, being Amazon, it would not surprise one to know that you were completely ignored.

      Modern ‘Shakespearian’ dialogue, such as found (with pretty base profanities) in the work of David Milch in “Deadwood” is a real treat when delivered by such accomplished actors as Ian McShane.

      If you haven’t seen it, it’s recommended. If you have, revisit it (after watching the new movie) and revel in the loquacity.

    The Rise of White Supremacy

    Just wondering if anyone here thinks this is a problem or just good clean fun? Did anyone catch Fareed’s special? Thoughts?

    “CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, host of CNN’s flagship global affairs program, Fareed Zakaria GPS, feels it’s time Americans understand the modern explosion in white supremacy, why the ideology is growing in the U.S. and abroad, who the leaders are, and what they want.

        Are you saying that you think that “White Supremacy” (Aryan Brotherhood, “The Order,” KKK, etc.) is desirable, good, or what? Just wondering.

        • SoftStarLight July 1, 2019 at 1:45 pm #

          White Supremacy is code word for Whites looking out for their own group interests. This is forbidden activity, but only for Whites. Any other racial group can cherish and celebrate their customs, traditions, history (they get their own months of the year!) with abandon. As all groups should be allowed to do. But Whites with strong in-group preferences are labeled White Supremacists. Non-Whites with strong in-group preferences are simply called people who our proud of their origins and their behavior is considered so natural and normal that our government literally sanctions it with official celebration.

          • jdhines July 1, 2019 at 5:01 pm #

            I think you left out the part that Whites are better than Blacks and Hispanics, that they deserve their own country, the Jews are evil, along with Muslims. You also didn’t mention Eugenics, Lynchings, death camps for the less than desirables and Nazis. I know those Nazis and KK’ers throw wonderful picnics and parades for the white kiddos, but they do some rather “unspeakable” things to, don’t they?

            It’s a little different than just “white pride,” but, of course you know that and don’t care. Please continue, you’re free to be a “racist” in the USofA, if you wish. Like Trump says, “a lot of good folks,” unless you’re not a white hillbilly. All this, despite the fact the humans share 99.999% of the SAME DNA and they all bleed RED, but why quibble over scientific details, when it’s so fun and easy to hate? Why indeed?

          • Janos Skorenzy July 1, 2019 at 5:21 pm #

            Rats bleed red too, hines. And a people who don’t value themselves are not long for this competitive world. So speak for yourself, yourself alone.

            Quite right my dear Janos, and so do spiders and snakes, but rats, spiders and snakes are not human. Well, unless you consider… (fill in the blank yourself).

            Get over the WHITE CULTURE shit. There is HUMAN culture and a lot of it really sucks. Read some history to see how wonderful the Whites (Vikings) and other European “cultures” (Celts, Franks, Visigoths) were. How about Alex the Great and his crew? Sweethearts, right? Napoleon, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin… Just fucking great too! Compassionate, caring, G_d fearing… not. How about our Spanish Conquistador friends and those quaint souls who gave us the Spanish Inquisition? Beautiful! Anyone for pulling out tongues and hanging folks by their thumbs? Well, those weren’t really people, were they Janos, just uspurers getting in the way of your vaunted Whites. I’m sick? Wrong answer – think again, ass opening.

            Care much for unprovoked attacks, rape and pillage? How about killing of innocents? Oh, that’s quite all right isn’t it? Now you want to whine when YOU BELIEVE the shoe is on the other foot. Get over your lames ass, violent, crfuel, sick, white culture. It’s a mess and always has been. Just look at where it has gotten us to this point. Nice!

            What I don’t see in your anti-white screed is the recognition of what other races have done as well.

            How about the Mandella communist crew setting tires filled with gasoline alight upon peoples necks and watching them slowly roast? The crime speaking out about the evils of Communism and refusing to go along.
            Or ripping the still beating hearts from peoples chests and selling the meat at local market?

            Roasting people at the stake many Native Americans engaged in that as well as slavery?

            Africans enslaving villages and selling them to Arabs who sold them to Dutch traders for the new world?

            Hutu and Tutsi fun and games anyone?

            Pol pot, Ida Amin, mao, Pinochet, Fujimora these are certainly not white people engaging in mass murder and mayhem. Sickness and chaos is part of the human condition and whites are no better at it nor worse than anyone else.

So we will never talk about how the Mongols and Huns and other assorted Asians brutally massacred so many people or how many millions have been slaughtered by Brown Muslims or burned alive and literally devoured by Black Africans. Nope. ONLY the White race is responsible for evil in the world according to JD.

            If JD truly believes that Western, White culture is so bad then he would completely get offline and off grid and move to like Mauritania or something. But he won’t ever do that. Nope he will always feed at the trough of Western civilization. Sucking it dry all the while condemning the trough that feeds him.

          LA RAZA

          MECHA

          BLACK PANTHERS

          COMMIES

          Kathy Boudin was born on May 19, 1943, into a family with a long left-wing history. She was raised in Greenwich Village, New York City. Her family was Jewish.
          Her great-uncle was Louis B. Boudin, a Marxist theorist. Her father, attorney Leonard Boudin, had represented controversial clients such as Judith Coplon, the Cuban government,[2] and Paul Robeson.[3] A National Lawyers Guild attorney, Leonard Boudin was the law partner of Victor Rabinowitz, himself counsel to numerous left-wing organizations.[4]
          Kathy Boudin attended Bryn Mawr College and is a member of the class of 1965.[citation needed]
          Boudin fell in love with David Gilbert in the 1970s and gave birth to their son Chesa in 1980.[citation needed] Chesa Boudin was adopted by former Weatherman leaders Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.[5]

          Boudin was paroled in 2003 and has since been an adjunct professor at Columbia University and a scholar in-residence at the NYU School of Law. She is well known for her AIDS activism and scholarly work in education both during and since her release from prison.

          leftist domestic terror group the Weather Underground (WU), Boudin was first arrested in 1970 after prematurely setting off a nail bomb she and another WU member were building and which was ultimately intended to be used against U.S. soldiers at Fort Dixon, New Jersey. Released on bond, Boudin skipped town only to reappear eleven years later working as a getaway truck driver with the Black Liberation Army in the robbery of an armored car carrying 1.6 million dollars.
          The U-Haul getaway truck was spotted and two officers then pulled it over. However, they were expecting to be confronted with the Black men who had just been spotted robbing the armed car, not Boudin.

          Police officers later testified that Boudin exited the vehicle with her hands up and implored them to lower their weapons even as two more officers arrived. Officers maintained that Boudin attempted to lull them into a false sense of security. Boudin maintained that she stayed silent.
          Regardless, at no time did she warn them that there were six men armed with automatic weapons in the back of the U-Haul. As a result, when the robbers leapt from the back of the truck and opened fire on the officers they were caught completely unaware and two were killed.

          Boudin, trying to escape on foot, was quickly nabbed as were most of the other robbers and WU members although two were shot and killed. Boudin was later tried along with the other members of the robbery crew. Boudin received by far the lightest sentence of 25 years to life perhaps because her father was a well-known and connected attorney himself and her attorney was able to arrange a plea bargain of one count of felony murder and one count of felony robbery. Most others involved in the robbery and shootings received triple that.

            The UN includes in its definition of “genocide” the creation of conditions likely to lead, in whole or in part, to the elimination of a national, racial, ethnic or religious group.
            The counterargument that non-Jewish whites are “not a racial group” can be refuted both with DNA evidence and by pointing out the existence of concepts such as “white privilege” and “white supremacy” as well as the existence of affirmative action programs that discriminate against whites.
            Proof of “elimination” can be supported by the following facts: 1) without the explicit permission of whites, and often on the basis of deception, massive non-white immigration has been taking place into majority-white nations; 2) whites have been forced against their will to integrate with non-whites; 3) whites have been discriminated against in affirmative action programs that favor non-whites over whites in college admissions, corporate hiring, corporate promotion and government contracting; 4) non-whites are being encouraged,in tax-supported public universities, to hate and want to take revenge on whites; 5) media, licensed by government to use the airwaves in majority white countries, promote race mixing and intermarriage and portray white people as weak and ridiculous on the one hand, or evil on the other;

            6) whites who speak out against these things are censored and retaliated against in the military, in public universities, and in corporations holding government contracts.

            I saw a movie of one the Boer training camps. Huge caches of weapons apparently. As one of the older guys said, it takes awhile (they have classes), but the young guys come to realize that peace with the Blacks was never going to be possible. It was never in the cards. But an amazing number of people – even Whites who have fled South Africa – still don’t get this. You don’t get it either. This silly pseudo-Christian ideology of “peace” has completely conquered the White Race, perhaps unto our doom.

            I so wish that you could attend one of these camps. The Boer Leader, Terry LeBranch (sp?) still didn’t quite get it either: he was slaughtered in his sleep by his house staff. He employed Negroes, trusted them with his life, and would have been grossly offended if you questioned him on this despite the countless other Whites who had been slaughtered by their servants. Mind blowing.

        Yes that is one aspect of it too. White Supremacy is anything supportive of the traditional Western world or culture. Also anything to do with European or American Nationalist movements. But White Supremacy can also be books, food, glances, unconscious hand movements, and so much more.

      Oh stop it with the sadism already! There are many here who see that the two parties are ultimately two sides of the same coin. People have their own biases of course though. In the instance of the general public what you say is true no doubt. But you know why. Our education system does not produce critical thinkers. Certainly it does not encourage questioning either. Unless your questioning your racial identity or sexual preference. That they can work with! Give the general populace a little slack. Most people are busy trying to make enough money to make sure the lights still turn on and something of what can be considered dinner can be put on the table. There isn’t a lot of time for thinking and when there is, well, there are a whole lot of distractions to keep people busy doing pointless and meaningless things. You know why that is too.

      Very few people on this blog are adverse to your statement, and most believe you are correct, as do I.

      It is the second sentence where the problem arises.

      >>> “To ensure that they go [u]n investigated and un-prosecuted for a coup d’[e]tat?”

      If this was a “coup d’etat,” which I do not believe it was, it was certainly a quarter-hearted one, at best. Much easier to have achieved coup with a “lone” assassin. Why would the 2 sided coin party want to get rid of the guy who signed into law the huge tax giveaway to the patrons of the Deep State? Makes no sense.

            Mr. Nightowl,

            “Pushing for a strong border” – Pushing for one, maybe, but certainly not achieving one, in fact the exact opposite. Due to his incompetence there are record numbers crossing the border as we er, write.

            “working to get corps to bring outsourced jobs back to the US” – again, perhaps “working” to get jobs back, but not succeeding unless you count all the new “service” (low pay, can’t support myself) jobs

            “reinvigorating our industrial base” – and this newly invigorated industrial base is where, Detroit, Akron, Pittsburg, Milwaukee – where exactly can we find this reindustrialization, pray tell?

            “controlling immigration” – See item one = worse than ever

            “taking an antiwar position on potential conflicts supported by the neocons and libs” – 10 minutes away from striking at Iran for the “drone” shoot down? Really?

            “openly speaking against globalism (“nationalism not globalism will be our credo”).” – Again, SPEAKING, talk is cheap. He can talk, the talk (BS), but he cannot walk, the walk, unfortunately. Just ask Janos and SSL.

            “He is a globalists worst nightmare” – Sure he is. That’s why he sends Ivanka all over the world trying to set up little distribution deals for her clothing line and other Trump assets. He’s quite the globe trotter (globalist trotter) as of late. Loves them ferners, Big Kim and Puttie Put and he’s very found of MBS and R. Duarte in the P.I too real true blooded ‘Merican he is.

          >>> “It isn’t a giveaway, when they are keeping more of their own money.”

          Ah, but that is where you are in error, definitely in error.

          It IS a GIVEAWAY when they are reducing the ability to payback money that has ALREADY been spent (e.g. the $22 trillion debt) and the folks who have incurred it (those living now) will not be paying it back, but rather their grandchildren and great grandchildren, etc.

          Well, of course, no one will be paying back, but that is beside the point. This is merely an extremely brief treatise on accrual accounting, debits and, of course, credits.

          So to summarize, you are in favor of the wealthiest among us paying LESS TAX, even though we are deeply indebted, is that your position? You do realize that, if you give the wealthy tax cuts, the difference gets made up by the rest of us ordinary people, right? It just how this shit works… (in case you haven’t notice) and it has always been that way… everyone takes a hit to give the aristocracy a cushy life. Is that what you are for?

        You’re confusing means with motivation. Just because they tried a “soft” coup doesn’t mean they weren’t 100% motivated. Appearances matter. Perception matters. Removing Trump through violent means would open a pandora’s box of unanticipated consequences. They needed this to appear legal and above board. They had to convince a majority of Republican Senators to go along with it. And the only way that could have happened was a smoking gun. Mueller had two years to find or conjure one. Finally they settled on the oldie-but-goldie: obstruction. But that’s not good enough for Senate Republicans, so the coup failed.

            Indeed they could have easily eliminated Trump if they had wanted to. That’s always puzzled me as well, as my first impression after he was elected was that was what would happen. But it also tells me that they had better uses for Trump, which we’re still seeing unfold. He’s certainly a favorite of the Zionists and the MICC now, so that’s always a plus. He’s divided DC straight down the middle providing cover for every manner of stupid behind the scenes shit and completely stalling any kind of coherent legislative agenda, and he’s completely discredited both the left and the right politically, thus utterly destroying what little faith anyone might have had in the ability of government to solve any problem in this country whatsoever, a feat that virtually no other politician now living could ever have pulled off. Quite a list of accomplishments indeed!

            When it comes to the Deep State and hidden agendas you have to think deeper, much much deeper, as the Globalist Zionists giving the orders do. Putting a bullet in Trump’s head would have just been primitive, old school, mafia hit style shit, which, though it was all the rage in 1963 for someone who was actually a threat, is now just considered gauche and inefficient, especially when the prospective target is not a threat at all, but a YUUGE opportunity! Trump has overwhelming support from the rank and file in the US, the one group that could be a genuine threat to rise up due to their current circumstances, so that releases the building pressure from them. He also stirs up the passions and the fears of the upper middle class loony left who are about to be thrown in the same pit of despair as “the deporables” already inhabit, which, along with the hysterical MSM media, paints them as the incompetent and ineffectual idiots that they truly are. Meanwhile, perpetual war, big oil, and generalized corporate capitalism are all raging along as profitable and efficient as ever. Not bad results at all for the criminal elite who are presiding over the three ring shit show in DC.

            So tell me again, exactly why would anyone want to do something stupid by killing Trump while all this is going on? Think bigger, focus softer, and all answers will be revealed.

            And by the way, you’re an idiot if you haven’t looked into 9-11 – aka “America’s New Pearl Harbor.” The evidence has long since been in and it’s conclusive. Conspiracy “theory” is now conspiracy “fact.”

            I think you have somethings confused here. Please see my post relative to the 2 sides of the same party that control everything and why they have decided that they actually love the Trumpster as he does their bidding pretty handily. Of course, they do not want to overthrow the loveable GGG! He does their bidding. Coup d’etat, my ass! For G_d sake, try to keep up!

            As for 9-11 conspiracy facts, I have an open mind on that issue and have not taken the time to delve into that matter even a little bit. I’m still trying to come to grips with Cyrus II, Alexander the Great, Charlamagne, William the Conqueror and others, but I will get to it eventually.

            If ‘Ol Scratch believes it to be true, it absolutely deserves a credible look. I mean, the devil himself, would know, right? It certainly is in the realm of distinct possibilities.

            A point of clarification please: “… the incompetent and ineffectual idiots that they truly are.” Is this referring to the loony left, the deplorables or both?

    I was going to say something like, once a reporter, always a reporter, but that doesn’t fit with the behavior of men like Dan Rather, Bob Woodward, and Carl Bernstein.

    I think these three exemplify the dawning of the era of celebrity journalists, rather than the old-fashioned “reporters”, who were largely a disreputable lot.

    he mission of our newspapers and television news programs switched from getting the story to bringing down a president, but nobody noticed.
    That’s what got Dan Rather and Mary Mapes in trouble. He still insists his story on President Bush’s National Guard service was accurate.
    It could have been, I don’t know.
    What neither of them seemed to get, and don’t get to this day, is they started with the concept that they needed to stop Bush and the means came later.
    Mary bemoaned the fact that due to personal issues, she had been unable to follow up on the Bush story earlier, when it could have influenced an election.
    That’s bias, deciding who needs taking down, and then working backward.
    That’s probably why Dan, who certainly knows how to investigate, basically leaves the Trump vs. Deep State story untouched.

    Another example, Megyn “Who Was I” Kelly, just prior to the first Republican debate, celebrated prematurely that she was going to change the course of history.
    An employee of a news organization, openly declaring that she is going to make news, not report it.
    The only course she changed was her own career trajectory, but she came out ahead financially anyway. Oh well.

    Ted Koppel recently touched on this issue, when he stated that journalists today are out to get President Trump, and that they do have a political bias.
    Then he had to go and ruin this refreshing bit of ethical journalistic honesty by saying they may be right in thinking Trump is bad for the country.
    I never subscribed to the notion that the MSM has a liberal bias. If they did, people like Dan Rather would be screaming about the violations of or civil liberties and rights under that Constitution he says he carries around.
    What the MSM has is its own peculiar code, it could be called a media bias.

    They all reserve the right to decide amongst themselves, who needs taking down, IN THEIR JUDGEMENT, and then they all become nothing but useful tools, passing along the propaganda “talking points” willingly.
    Maybe this is what they learn when they go for their journalism degrees, who knows.

            I never said he had blond hair Alba. Jesus had brown hair obviously, with some hints of red here and there. Same thing with his beard. Remember, we had this conversation before about how Muhammad had similar features and thats why the Muslims dye their hair and beards with henna so they can look more like the prophets.

            And JD that is a common misconception that the races are going to merge into a single, generic race. Certainly that has been an underlying goal of the Satanists since the Tower of Babel. But God makes it clear that all nations (yes, plural) will worship him in the end and his Name shall be praised in all languages (plural too).

    Last week’s democratic debates finally showed with crystal clarity -Hillary Clinton managed to completely finish off the US Democratic Party and, accordingly, the US bipartisan system, since after 2016 the Democrats were unable to nominate at least one candidate capable of attracting the attention of a democratic voter with a sane program.

    Instead, all candidates try to imitate Bernie Sanders ala 2016 edition and trying to stand out from the crowd, making more and more “leftist” statements ala Leon Trotsky, and Bernie Sanders himself, who in 2016 was a sane EuroSocialist, now, having been in the hands of Bastinda, most of all looks like a broken toy robot.

Your calling him out for EARNING a taxable income that took him to that level is just shitty-bitchiness. If his books hadn’t sold – that is, been in demand – he wouldn’t have succeeded.

          Please tell – just what ‘excuses’ has he made? And besides, if his books stop selling, that income could dry up as quickly as it arrived. Sic semper gloria mundi.

          FYI, maybe YOU’RE in the 1%!

          “Just how much do you have to pull in to join the 1 percent?

          A minimum family income of $421,926, according to a new report from the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), which used the latest available data to analyze how the top 1 percent of earners, and the bottom 99 percent of earners, across the U.S. have fared between 1917 and 2015.

          In affluent metropolitan areas, however, the threshold is much higher. In New York City, for example, your household needs an annual income of $744,426 to be in the 1 percent of earners. In San Francisco, it’s $943,782.

          There are even a handful of metro areas where the threshold is above $1 million, notably Jackson, Wyoming, home to extremely wealthy residents like former Vice President Dick Cheney and Walmart heiress Christy Walton. In Jackson, you have to make $1.7 million to be among the 1 percent.

          Keep in mind that these numbers just represent the threshold you have to cross — the average income of the top 1 percent nationwide is $1.32 million. In the Jackson metro area, it’s $16.2 million.

          The other 99 percent, on the other hand, earn an average of $50,107 a year. That means that, in 2015, the EPI reports, “the top 1 percent of families in the U.S. earned, on average, 26.3 times as much income as the bottom 99 percent.”

          • benr July 5, 2019 at 9:29 am #

            Since it globalist pushing this 1% narrative they don’t think locally or even nationally so your NUMBERS are way off.
            I do mean way off so all of your numbers mean nothing you need to figure the global high and low and derive the number.
            I thought I saw somewhere it was around 72,000 a year.

          • benr July 5, 2019 at 9:33 am #

            Oops according to this website I am way off as well.

            Ranking by Income
            According to the Global Rich List, a website that brings awareness to worldwide income disparities, an income of $32,400 a year will allow you to make the cut. $32,400 amounts to roughly:

            28,614 euros
            2.307 million Indian rupees
            218,532 Chinese yuan

            So if you’re an accountant, a registered nurse or even an elementary school teacher, congratulations. The average wage for any of these careers falls well within the top 1 percent worldwide.

            We have homeless people panhandling that make that much a year.

    Trump, who was sitting next to Merkel in Osaka, threw in information that the US Democratic Party is going to rename itself into the Socialist Party of the United States, and Merkel had an expression on her face that he had said into the US National Socialist Party.

    Well, the indignation of “experts” that Trump violated the tradition of forbidding criticism of domestic political opponents outside the US can be neglected after Trump’s internal political opponents mixed him with shit when he was in Helsinki and Hamburg, but commentator’s reaction to this incident forced me to go back and review all recent Trump’s interviews.

    And I came to the conclusion that Trump “blurted out” about his readiness to get acquainted with the compromising material on his opponent in the election campaign, and only after call the FBI because he had already received such compromising material from another power and wants to declare it openly, because such compromise requires indication of sources of its receipt.

    And it could be anything: from 33 e-mails that Hillary Clinton erased when they were under the subpoena of the Congress, or even about the connection of the US Democratic Party with the National Socialist Party of Germany through the Bormann’s Nazi money.

    Funny man, Ricky Gervais, makes a good point:

    It’s interesting that the people who believe that throwing a milkshake in someone’s face shouldn’t be considered assault are often the same people who believe that ‘saying things’ should be.

    JS: One remember Alba and Elrond chuckling after a British politician got milkshaked. And both of them are down with the speech as violence idea. The Worms and the Spice – is there a connection?

    • GreenAlba July 1, 2019 at 7:10 pm #

      I’m happy to chuckle at Farage and then chuckle at the milk-shake thrower being taken away and charged with assault. I said I didn’t believe in milk-shake politics, but I can still have a laugh at Farage.

      I believe you prefer presidential candidates who tell the punters, nostalgically that hecklers used to be carried out on stretchers.

      I pointed out at the time (of the milk-shake assault) that Ed Miliband dealt with his own episode of eggy assault with much greater style than Nigel.

      That’s the way to do it…

      • SoftStarLight July 2, 2019 at 9:47 am #

        That “egg attack” honestly appeared to be staged. Ed didn’t even seem all that surprised. I wonder if this is just theatrics to elicit exactly the reaction you had. That Ed Miliband simply handles everything with so much more grace and style than Nigel Farage could ever muster.

        I would have had more respect for Ed if he would have taken the eggy mess and smeared it onto the face of his “attacker”. But then again I like a more “in your face”, “brawly” type of style. There is a lot of grace and dignity in chuckling at your opponents. Simply follow up the laughter with a “bless their hearts” and you’re good to go.

        • GreenAlba July 2, 2019 at 12:24 pm #

          You do know that the egg incident was 7 years ago?

          No, no reason why you would.

          And, no, grace and style was never Ed’s forte. See ‘Ed Miliband and the bacon sandwich’. This was an exception, but entirely the way to deal with something that silly.

          But yes, you are beyond help in the conspiracy game.

          “I would have had more respect for Ed if he would have taken the eggy mess and smeared it onto the face of his “attacker”. “

          I’ll let him know for next time. I’m sure your respect is something he just wouldn’t want to be without. And, since you like a more ‘in your face’ ‘brawly’ type of style, I’ll tell Nigel to stop whingeing like a big girl’s blouse over a milk shake too. Given that Aaron Banks seems to have subbed him half a million that he er…forgot to declare when he was still an MEP, I’m sure he can afford the dry cleaning bill.

          • SoftStarLight July 2, 2019 at 12:56 pm #

            Well it did look funny but of course you know more about it than I do. I would hope that Ed would want my respect if I were a UK voter. And yeah I wouldn’t like Nigel whining about anything either. But I do have a question. I am sure that the “milkshake attack” was more of a big laugh over there compared to Ed’s “egg attack” no? Sort of like over here the only thing you ever see if you ever turn on any mainstream channel are people making fun of Trump, Trump supporters, red states, and then Trump again.

          • GreenAlba July 2, 2019 at 2:55 pm #

            They got pretty much the same coverage. In fact Ed’s media detractors spent far more time having a go at him. He spent his short career having people take the piss out of him.

            Like I said, check the bacon sandwich. And then the ten commandments. And on top of that he had to deal with antisemitism. They even tried to attack him with allegations about his father. There’s a lot of barrel scraping goes on in the UK ‘popular’ press.

      They have professionally printed signs around the libraries, telling us where we can and cannot sit, and of course the required cameras.

      I read someplace where someone was asked how the Stasi enticed East Germans to inform on their neighbors, and the answer was they didn’t, the people just did it voluntarily.

    I almost guessed: out of the four hours of Sunday political broadcasts, very important statements by Donald Trump at a rally in Orlando, Florida, in particular, the statement that he was running for a second term and intends to make the issue of Hillary Clinton one of the main themes of his election campaign, was given a total of two minutes.

    It’s funny that this is exactly the sign of the election campaign that has begun, because thanks to it, this information is no longer information, but the enemy’s propaganda from the point of view of American journalists.

    And this is almost not connected with the aforementioned minutes, but with the fact that one of the best US journalists, Chuck Todd, the host of the Sunday political program “Meet the Press”, on June 23, at the request of Trump, took a live interview where Trump’s election campaign, announced June 19, was also not mentioned.

    Despite this, on the democratic forums Chuck Todd is already being called a rat that escaped from the Clinton’s ship, and I’m not surprised if this is the case, although I think this interview is actually an act of jealousy of George Stephanopoulos, who on June 17 Interviewed Trump in which the US President “let it slip”, answering Stephanopoulos’ direct question, that if a foreign country, such as Norway, offers him compromising material to his opponent on an election campaign, he will first get acquainted with this compromising information, and only then may call and notify the FBI or the Attorney General.

    Moreover, he said this allegedly in a fit of rage, remembering how he was blackmailed in 2018, threatening to put his son in prison for negotiations with Russian representatives.(3:30)

    youtube.com/watch?v=O2nkQMZEI6Q

    George Stephanopoulos is the son of the Archbishop of the Greek Orthodox Church, and many consider him the chief architect of the (Hillary) Bill Clinton victory in 1992, for which his father was rumored to have driven him out of the house.

    I saw him at the jazz club “Blue note”, when he, realizing what he had done, was on the verge of suicide and got into a psychiatric hospital, the one in which John Nash was “treated”.

    Nevertheless, the treatment went to his advantage, and, having left this hospital, he realized that he had nowhere to go and had to return to the Diocese of Hillary Clinton – he began working on TV channel 7, cutting Hillary 30% of his salary (which became the subject of a big scandal when he was a moderator at the presidential debate in 2016).

    And I repeatedly paid attention that very often he, attacking opponents of Hillary Clinton, actually rolled the ball into their penalty area. In particular, in this interview in response to a question from Stephanopoulos, Trump, allegedly making a mistake, said that the question about Hillary Clinton is actually a question about relations with Russia.
    And after watching the interview with Chuck Todd, which took place 3 days after Trump announced his election campaign and 6 days after Stephanopoulos’ interview, Chuck Todd got into the trap set for him and asked Trump about his attitude to impeachment, and I understood that Trump outwitted everyone again. It was with this question that Trump himself planned for the question posed by Stephanopoulos, which in those 6 days drove the American democratic (Clinton) hangout batshit crazy. And I realized that he demanded a live interview just for this (23:00)

    youtube.com/watch?v=aBglxa6K8gc

    Naturally, I was looking forward to the program “Meet the Press” yesterday, assuming that this week Chuck Todd would understand what happened a week ago and show himself in all his glory, especially considering he was the only one “democratic journalist” who three years ago told about the book “Clinton Cash”, in which in every detail was outlined how much Germany and Saudi Arabia contributed to Hillary Clinton’s election campaign.

    And yesterday was the 85th anniversary of the Night of the Long Knives.

    And Chuck Todd did not disappoint me. In a dull voice, he talks about what all the other political programs said yesterday:

    Namely, about Trump’s “spontaneous” visit to North Korea, about the problem of illegal emigration, no different from a similar problem in Russia and in Europe, and also about one of the few journalists supporting Trump Tucker Carlson, who I remember a month ago, when he publicly considered the problem of illegal emigration in terms of the general crisis of capitalism, and now shook American society, dissuading Trump from bombing Iran.

    youtube.com/watch?v=An-erzs4xLg

    P.S. Reviewing the interview with Chuck Todd I once again want to draw your attention to Trump’s emphatic respectful attitude towards Barack Obama, and I came to the conclusion that Trump already got the evidence of a Hillary Clinton coup d’etat on June 10, 2016, about which I wrote many times.

          I doubt he’s very interested in what goes on in the University of Cumbria, brh.

          But most people reading it wouldn’t believe it. There’s a section on denial, even among the environmental community, that’s worth reading.

          My guess is that people like Putin don’t think they personally need to worry (and nor does he, compared to most people – he’s amassed an unimaginable fortune). I think we’re all capable of processing information like that and being horrified, then going back to our normal lives and thinking ‘it can’t really be that bad, can it?’, when everything still seems relatively normal, bar the odd bad storm or wildfire. We all compartmentalise, and I think people with that sort of power probably do it more than most. Helplessness before something as big as climate change is not an emotion they willingly submit to.

          And, as the author says, in different words, we’re on a roundabout that we’ve made it almost impossible to get off.

          No-one with sufficient power has the guts to (a) take it on board personally, then (b) stand up and say it. And nobody will probably ever stand up and say it, then submit themselves to the ballot box. You can very easily get killed for undermining the beliefs that people’s lives are built on.

      I once knew a crazy middle-aged white blond woman in California who thought that the characters on the TV Show “Dallas” were glamorous. She made up weird stories about herself to try to impress people. For example, she once claimed that she had decorated Facebook CFO, Sheryl Sandberg’s house. She also insisted that she had been a personal stewardess to US Presidents on Airforce One. After I fired her, the last that I heard she ran off to Hawaii to have her tits cut off as a preemptive move like that big Hoywood movie actress married to Brad Pitt.

    if a foreign country, such as Norway, offers him compromising material to his opponent on an election campaign, he will first get acquainted with this compromising information, and only then may call and notify the FBI or the Attorney General.

    One thing is clear, Trump purposely hints at having the dirt on the Democrats because he needs impeachment, and the Democrats, in fear of the unknown, will deliver him this pleasure, despite Nancy Pelosi desperate resistance, after which the Senate trial will raise the question not about Russia’s interference in 2016 elections, but that the information they published was not false, and those responsible for these manipulations in the electoral process cannot blame Trump for allegedly receiving this information from another state, and this opens the way for the publication of compromising material that he got stashed for 2020.

    I’d like to see Jim get back to topics on which he’s more fully informed. Jim suffers from confirmation bias just as do we mere mortals. Jim’s filter bubble has him equate the alleged email scandal of the Clinton campaign to the rest of Trump’s activities before and after he became commander-in-chief.

      It ain’t the emails, it’s the illegal server(s!!) outside the US Government secured system with tons of classified materials, including the identities of US undercover agents, hacked by entire planet.

      Just transferring such classified materials to that server(s) is a crime in itself under the US Espionage Act and still NOBODY could explain how Hillary did it, but one thing’s certain – there ain’t legal ways to do that.

    JHK:
    “Mr. Mueller’s notion of testimony-by-script is at least as unorthodox as his innovation of pronouncing the object of his criminal inquiry “not exonerated,” an unprecedented and certainly extra-legal spin to the prosecutorial standard of finding an indictable offense or not — without added aspersions, insinuations, and defamations.”

    In a binary judicial system, there’s only room for “Innocent” and “Guilty”, hence JHK’s characterization of Mueller’s pronouncement as ‘unorthodox’.

    However, in the Scottish legal system, there is the unique verdict option (I think, unique to Scotland – I trust GA will correct me on this if I’m wrong) that a jury can bring down, that of ‘Not Proven’.

    I think that is what Mueller was trying for – “hey, he’s as guilty as the day is long, that’s as obvious as the bollocks on a racing hound, but we can’t quite PROVE it in this case, given he’s, you know, the ‘Prez’…”

    • GreenAlba July 1, 2019 at 8:26 pm #

      I think it is unique to Scotland, Majella, but there has been pressure for some time to get rid of it. It’s unflatteringly known as ‘the bastard verdict’, since it leaves suspicion even when there is no proof of wrongdoing.

      It’s obviously true that with the binary system some people will be acquitted when they were indeed guilty of wrongdoing, but that’s the price we pay for minimising the number of innocents who are wrongly presumed guilty.

      As they say, the law can’t always dispense justice – it can only dispense the law.

      • Majella July 1, 2019 at 10:00 pm #

        Thanks, Green Alba

        I’ve done a little research on it now

        (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Not_proven)

        Originally, it actually WAS a binary system – ‘Proven’ or ‘Not Proven’ – till 1728 when a jury asserted ‘its ancient right’ to declare a defendant ‘Not Guilty’. Thereafter, there have been these two acquittal options.

        While I can see your point about ‘the bastard verdict’, I also can see its use in situations like Mueller’s decision, as it captures the concept that he’s not exonerated.

      • Majella July 1, 2019 at 10:02 pm #

        “As they say, the law can’t always dispense justice – it can only dispense the law”

        I’ve often felt that the law & justice can be complete strangers to one another.

        • GreenAlba July 2, 2019 at 7:07 am #

          I’d agree with you there, Majella, although I don’t agree with those who are totally cynical about it. The adversarial system unfortunately means that sometimes it’s just the person who can afford the best lawyer who wins, but that’s far from being the case in the majority of instances, I think.

          And sometimes when justice has not been done, it’s been the police who have been discovered to have withheld critical evidence (to the point where the London Met.(back in the days of such famous miscarriages of justice as the ‘Guildford Four’ and the ‘Birmingham Six’) were jokingly referred to as ‘sponsored by Tippex’, in pre-digital days).

          At least in this country you can get Legal Aid if you’re poor but the income levels necessary to qualify have gone down so much over the years that only those with no savings and the very lowest incomes may get it. I benefited from it myself some 30-odd years ago – not for anything criminal, I hasten to add 🙂 .

          It’s true the legal system generally benefits most those who most resemble its majority members – white, middle class (UK sense), educated and well spoken.

      I read that Trump calls Mueller a “Man out of the blue,” appointed by an obscure Justice Department official without confirmation. It was an investigation that actually began with Trump’s own decision to fire James Comey, while Comey headed an investigation into possible Trump campaign ties to Russia.

      As I remember, the attacks began immediately after Mueller’s appointment, and have never abated. What I can’t figure out, is why they’re still attacking Mueller after they say his report exonerates Trump. What more could they want? I suppose Mueller committing seppuku on the Capitol steps would help heal the wounds he caused Trump to suffer, unjust as they were, and the Deep State, don’t get me started! It’s pretty obvious to the enlightened, that the Deep State is simply the new form that the Illuminati has chosen to help enhance it’s rule of the world. A suggestion; every time you read the words “Deep State”, replace them with ” Illuminati “, and see if everything doesn’t add up all of a sudden

      The problem is: there really IS a loose group of people trying to run the world, but using the “Deep State” to excuse every misdeed committed in D.C., allows the Deep State to mock it all as radar chaff, thrown up to obscure the actual maneuverings going on in that city. What you all call the Deep State is really very happy with the confusion that is being caused. It makes their job easier.

      • Ol' Scratch July 2, 2019 at 6:21 am #

        The Deep State is the working arm of the Illuminati (a highly dramatic term, to be sure). The Illuminati decides and gives the orders, the Deep State executes them. The only thing that can cure the Deep State and its Unholy Crescent (DC/NYC, London, Tel Aviv/Jerusalem) is total dissolution. Probably not going to happen in our lifetimes.

        • SoftStarLight July 2, 2019 at 10:25 am #

          That’s actually a very concise and clear description of some of their machinations there Ol’ Scratch. So the Deep State is literally the hands and feet of the Elite. The foot soldiers and the movers and shakers. And the Illuminati is like the Elite’s brain trust. The Illuminati is like Dr. Claw and the Deep State are like M.A.D. agents.

      >>> In a binary judicial system, there’s only room for “Innocent” and “Guilty”, hence JHK’s characterization of Mueller’s pronouncement as ‘unorthodox’.

      We also have nolo contendere. It’s not an admission of guilt. It merely means you don’t wish to contest the prosecution.

      Why would someone do this? Imagine for example that the result of NOT contesting the prosecution makes no difference to you. Or maybe the court’s “remedy” for winning the case is not acceptable to you. So there’s no point in being involved in a costly and lengthy process that offers you no benefit and no effective loss.

    Did David Livingstone compromise his Christian Missionary Principles by tagging along with and soliciting the assistance of Arab slave traders in Africa? Or is this just another example of Perfidious Albion? Or are Livingstone’s shiftless, good-for-nothing African porters to blame when they dropped the Honkey Livingstone’s luggage in the middle of the jungle which may have pissed off Livingstone and rendered him sympathetic to the A-Rabs?

    If Mueller actually does show up to Nadler’s 3 Ring Circus on the 17th, he will continue to do what has been doing since the beginning. Obfuscation.. like his quickie “news confab” that he had a few weeks ago where he said cryptic statements similar to “there isn’t enough evidence to convict Trump… but… if there were. .it would be up to Congress”..

        I would not put too much faith in those statistics. Granted, there are gender differences in how males and females react to mistreatment, but we really don’t have a good handle them.

        For a long time it was said that dissociative personalty disorder (“multiple personality”) was almost exclusively female, but there is disagreement on that now (among the “multiple personalities” there is always an aggressive, avenging personality). If you think a dissociative female is less destructive than a narcissistic male you need to get around more.

        Most people, when they talk about narcissism are talking about malignant narcissism which is a lot more than just being overly concerned about one’s image.

        The whole field of “abnormal” psychology is in transition. In the past it was mostly bullshit while today it seems to be less, but a lot of that is because they have eschewed sharp definitions and admitted their ignorance.

    What does the Bible say about Slavery? The Koran seems to have institutionalized Slavery. Wasn’t Obama’s African dad a Muslim? There was that photo of Obama wearing that A-Rab outfit…,

    “Few men of his era spoke out as passionately against slavery as Livingstone. To eat food that was paid for with money earned from slavery was against everything for which he stood. In his journal there was no attempt at rationalization, just a matter-of-fact admittance that he’d come across a caravan led by a slaver named Magaru Mafupi. The slaver was a “black Arab,” born of an Arab father and African mother. The lineage might have confused the outside world, but Livingstone knew well the symbiotic relationship between Africans and Arabs. Although Europeans perceived the African continent to be an uncharted land populated by indigenous cultures, the truth was that Arabs had lived alongside Africans for over a thousand years. It was the seventh century A.D. when Arabian ships began trading beads for ivory with Bantu tribes along the East African coast. A mingling of their cultures began: The Arabs brought Islam; Swahili, meaning “coastal,” was formed by merging Arabic and Bantu; the financiers of India and Persia set up shop in Zanzibar to outfit caravans; African men found work hauling ivory, giving birth to the occupation of pagazi—porter. Little boys of the Nyamwezi tribe even carried small tusks around their village, training for the great day when they would join the mighty caravans. That relationship between Arab and African had been corrupted, though, as slavery became lucrative in the sixteenth century. Losers in war were routinely enslaved, and children were often kidnapped as their parents worked the fields. As early as the seventh century, men, women, and children from subequatorial Africa were being captured by other African tribes and spirited north across the Sahara’s hot sands. Two-thirds of those surviving the epic walk were women and children about to become concubines or servants in North Africa or Turkey. The males comprising the remaining third were often pressed into military service.“

      Slave Registers from London Name the Slaves Kamala Harris’ Ancestor Owned

      Patrick Howley, Big League Politics, July 1, 2019

      Democrat presidential candidate Kamala Harris is descended from Irish slave owner Hamilton Brown, the namesake of Brown’s Town in Jamaica, who recruited massive numbers of Irish migrants to Jamaica to work on his sugar plantations after the British empire abolished slavery.

      Kamala Harris’ father Donald Harris wrote an essay entitled “Reflections of a Jamaican Father” for Jamaica Global Online, in which he made a startling admission (emphasis added):

      Hamilton Brown was not only a slave owner, but also an engineer of mass Irish migration to Jamaica after the British empire abolished slavery in 1834.

      Jamaican Family Search recorded: “Hamilton Brown owned several plantations over the years 1817 to about 1845. According to the 1818 Almanac which can be found on this site, (Jamaican Family Search) , he was the owner of Minard (128 slaves) which he must have acquired from its previous owner (John Bailie) in 1815 or later. The number of slaves on this estate approximates the number of slaves in one of the registers attributed to his ownership (124 slaves). The other register (86 slaves) cannot be assigned to any estate, although he is listed in Almanacs for subsequent years as owning several, (Antrim, Grier Park, Colliston, Little River, Retirement and Unity Valley).”

      Here is a full accounting of the slaves owned by Hamilton Brown, according to the National Archives in London, as of June 28, 1817 in the parish of St. Ann in Jamaica:

      Hamilton Brown officially swore to the authenticity of this record, stating:

      “I Hamilton Brown do swear that the above list and return consisting of two sheets is a true perfect and complete list and return, to the best of my knowledge and belief in every particular therein mentioned of all and every slaves possessed by me as owner, considered as most permanently settled, worked and employed in the Parish of Saint Ann on the twenty Eight day of June One thousand Eight Hundred and Seventeen without fraud, deceit or evasion So help me God.

        Wow so the Caramel Woman is going to have to start sending out payments to YT for the absolution of her slave owning ancestors sins. Sweet!

    • SoftStarLight July 2, 2019 at 11:14 am #

      Interesting. Thank you for posting. A true accounting of the history of slavery should be taught in all schools but I know that is a pipe dream. Additional proof of the deep roots of the institution of slavery within African and Arab cultures generally.

      • GreenAlba July 2, 2019 at 11:26 am #

        The difference was that the episode that’s had the modern repercussions was run by er…’Christians’, who, you’d normally tell me, should know better because… values and such. Granted it was Christians who campaigned to put it to an end, but many didn’t agree.

        And certainly in the UK the ‘Christian’ slave owners were so well compensated that the fortunes they made enabled them to start up the factories that made them mega-fortunes in the industrial revolution. It took a few of the more enlightened in the country, later on, to point out that kiddies shouldn’t be working every daylight hour and risking falling into a machine that would butcher them. But ‘Christians’ could be slow in the uptake about these things, just like their benighted ‘inferiors’.

        • Janos Skorenzy July 2, 2019 at 12:54 pm #

          It’s because of Christianity that Europe gave up the slavery of the Pagan Roman Empire. Humanity is BAD, Alba. Yet because Christians are human and therefore far from perfect, you seize on this as if THEY were the problem. How utterly twisted can you get?

          Other major religions have their own versions of the doctrine of a fallen humanity. I mean if we were fine as is, why would religion even exist? Doctors exist because of sickness…..

        • SoftStarLight July 2, 2019 at 1:13 pm #

          Absolutely! Just as we get physically sick we also can and do get spiritually sick. And of course many of the world’s problems are due to spiritual sickness and darkness in men’s hearts. This is natural. But what is also natural is that some have been given the gift of knowledge that they then use to heal others of their physical ailments. And we have also been given spiritual doctors who help heal our souls. You talk as if being Christian is a sort of static state identity. This is totally false. Being a Christian is a daily and sometimes minute by minute struggle and fight. It is not an identity really. It is a goal. One that can never be completely reached on this plane of existence. But God knows the heart and its intentions and we are recompensed accordingly. Yes Alba, professed Christians do terrible things sometimes like all other people. You have made it clear to me in the past that when Muslims do terrible things it is in no way reflective of Muslims generally. I assume you exercise this discretion in your consideration of Christians.

          • GreenAlba July 2, 2019 at 2:46 pm #

            I just think, in the circumstances, you should maybe stop thinking how superior your race is.

            It’s odd because you accept that Christians were wrong then but you can’t imagine that you’re wrong now.

            ‘God willing’, you say, we’ll achieve this or that. How do you know God is on your side and not on the side of the people you consider your enemies? I get why you’re on your side but I don’t get how you assume ‘God’ is.

            I think you have two separate things going on which you try to combine and which I think are antithetical. I explained it in another post, although some of it was tongue in cheek.

            You have two aims, as far as I can see – one is to further your belief in white supremacy and the other is to follow what you see as a biblical path. I think these are in opposition to one another – that’s all. You don’t need to choose if you can persuade yourself that they are one and the same. Obviously, from a psychological standpoint, it’s helpful to think there’s no contradiction.

    Note to JFK:  Latin “ex” (usually “e” before consonants, as in “e pluribus unum,” “out of several, one”) means “out of” or “from.”  It does not mean “in.”  “Deus ex [or e] machina” means “a god from/out of a machine.”  Latin, incidentally, like Russian, has neither a definite (“the”) nor an indefinite (“a, an”) article.

    The Deep State is the working arm of the Illuminati == Scratch

    The main thing that makes me laugh when now Marxist science has been declared a conspiracy, and this whole Gnostic rubbish a mainstream science. Meanwhile, everything is exactly the opposite, and in the Soviet Academy of Sciences, all those involved in this knew that Hegel was the main ideologue of the Illuminati, and not just the Illuminati, but the very lodge that created the Yale University and is called the Skull and Bones society.

    The members of this lodge are George Bush Sr. and Junior, and why don’t you all take a look at one of the official mainstream biographies of President’s grandfather Prescott Bush, referenced in the English version of article in Wikipedia.

    There everything is written quite mainstream about who and exactly how brought Truman to power, who on May 8, 1945 made peace with Nazi Germany.

    Separate peace!

    This means that the United States has nothing to do with the Victory Day on May 9, 1945, and this statement is at the same time an absolutely reliable historical fact and a conspiracy theory.

    Liberalism and Western-ism in Russia emerged as a historical-scholar, literary and artistic movement around the Hegelian community of Berlin, whose leader was Peter Stankevich, and the most prominent and articulated figure was Timothy Granovsky.

    Under the influence of German historical science, this circle created a certain mythological idea of the liberal West, which had nothing to do with the real West and even might have been hostile to it.

    Liberal ideology in Russia is based on a substitution. Although it is unclear whether this substitution is random or deliberate, but given the environment for the formation of these ideas, which gave rise not only to Russian liberalism, but also to German nationalism and militarism, we have to recognize it as legitimate.

    This substitution has a landmark character and hides the deep essence of Russian liberalism, as an ideology proclaiming the desirability and even the need for desacralization of power.

      Russian liberalism as you describe it is an “ideology proclaiming the desirability and even the need for desacralization of power”. Well who achieved this? The Bolsheviks of course. They removed the primacy of Russian Orthodoxy from the lives of everyday Russians and they removed the Czar, the Russian Caesar, from power. Everything the Bolsheviks stood for was God-less and secular. Those are your Russian liberals. And no!!!!! They do not compare to German Fascists. The Fascists wanted to bring spirituality back into the lives of every day Germans. They wanted to re-invigorate the German nation with a spiritual life since Germany had become so God-less and secular. Hah! You’re not going to get away with confusing us!

        SSL

        en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_Nazi_Germany

        At least the original Nazis were logical:

        “Hitler’s Propaganda Minister, Joseph Goebbels, saw an “insoluble opposition” between the Christian and Nazi world views.[34] The Fuehrer angered the churches by appointing Alfred Rosenberg, an outspoken pagan, as official Nazi ideologist in 1934.[35] Heinrich Himmler saw the main task of his Schutzstaffel (SS) organization to be that of acting as the vanguard in overcoming Christianity and restoring a “Germanic” way of living.[36] Hitler’s chosen deputy, Martin Bormann, advised Nazi officials in 1941 that “National Socialism and Christianity are irreconcilable.”[35]”

        Which is kinda what I’ve been saying all along, and what most rational people would conclude in about 30 seconds flat. But you go ahead – a Nazi state in which the Church is subordinate to the state sounds just like the way the priorities line up in your head.

          A Germanic Christianity! Sounds about right! But yeah, He didn’t like it, really. But He didn’t want a rebellion at home. So chose the gradual path of change – scheduling the Youth Meetings on Sunday mornings for example. He did believe in God and did feel religion was necessary, so you’re wrong in that much if you thought otherwise.

          And the problem with modern Christianity is the lack of unity and the fragmentation of the Church into literally thousands of denominations. We would do better if we had thought leaders who could bring us together. Despite their differences in opinion…and it appears that even Nazis have diverse opinions…they did agree that Germany needed a public (and private) spiritual life. Do you realize this is more for us to work with than the absolute authoritarian Secularists who are in power now who are intentionally erasing all aspects of religiosity and spirituality from public life? I know you have no tolerance for my ideas but the State would function better if it incorporated the Church. In many ways the Church could be the hands and feet of the State, but there would also be many occasions in which the State was the hands and feet of the Church. But for this to truly work the State would need to be comprised of one people and one basic religion. No room for multiculturalism or multiple races.

            Tolerance doesn’t need to enter into it, SSL, for me to observe that your ideas are un-American — very clearly so.

            The highest law of the land in the USA declares that there shall be no ‘establishment of religion’ (i.e. no official state religion along the lines of the Church of England), and no intervention into people’s religious freedom. Your founding fathers made rather a point of ensuring that the government would never be in the business of telling people how to worship, or whether to worship.

            I mean, you don’t have to agree with them; but this is the case. To get what you want, you would have to knock down what America has been since its founding, and replace it with something else. Why not come out and say so?

        Byzantium – the new Rome – achieved the ideal of Caesaro Papism far more than the West or old Rome ever did. And Russian, the Third Rome, adopted this as an ideal as well.

        From the Wiki heading on the same:

        In its extreme form, caesaropapism is a political theory in which the head of state, notably the emperor (“Caesar”, by extension a “superior” king), is also the supreme head of the church (pope or analogous religious leader).

        So indeed, where is he getting this stuff?

      Yep, 22 years into a treaty with the UK that was meant to preserve democratic self-governance in HK for 50 years, China tells the UK what it can do with its treaty, i.e. it can mind its own business and keep its nose out, this is an ‘internal matter’ because we say it is. Maybe there will be some spare room in those Muslim-reeducating facilities for some others needing reeducation.

      What a great time for the UK to try to go it alone, and in need of a trade deal with China too. And now selling more arms to the Saudis has been ruled illegal too. Oops, bad luck for the weapons merchants and the Treasury.

      What is it exactly that Pelosi could win? She’s already achieved her highest level of incompetence by presiding over the sham resistance Yellow Streak Mule Dem Party. They used to at least provide a reasonably convincing illusion of genuine resistance, provided you stayed drunk enough to not really notice, but Trump has stripped the cheap veneer of that rotting piece of cheap furniture and tossed into the fire for all to see. The fact that they’re trotting out Uncle Joe Biden now and his merry band of circus freaks pretty much signals the end for the Yellow Streak Mules for the foreseeable future. I’ll give AOC credit for lively hysterics and reasonably good looks at least, but the walking stiff Pelosi appears to be little more than a political zombie, waiting for her inevitable and long overdue demise.

    Dmitry Orlov weighs in with a masterpiece this morning, which should even be received well by most here:

    The Death of the Liberal Idea

    cluborlov.blogspot.com/2019/07/the-death-of-liberal-idea.html

    ************

    And then comes the bombshell announcement. In an interview with Financial Times Putin declares that “the liberal idea… has finally outlived its usefulness” because it no longer serves the needs of the majority of the peoples. Not “people,” mind you, but “peoples”—all different, but all the viable ones united in their steadfast adherence to the principle that family and nation (from the Latin verb nasci—to be born) are über alles. Some might perceive hints of fascism in this train of thought, but that would be akin to arguing that since fascists are known to use toothbrushes, then ipso facto toothbrushes are fascist implements to be outlawed and everyone must go back to cleaning their teeth with twigs and sticks. That Putin was able to utter words to the effect that the liberal idea is dead—something no Western leader would dare say—shows how much the world has changed.

    Not that some Western leaders wouldn’t say it, if they only could. “Our Western partners,” Putin said, “have conceded that some elements of the liberal idea are simply not realistic… such as multiculturalism. Many of them conceded that yes, unfortunately it doesn’t work (LOL) and that we must remember the interests of the native population.” Not that Russia doesn’t have its share of problems related to migrants, due to its open border policy with certain former Soviet republics, but it works to resolve them by demanding competency in Russian and respect for Russian culture and traditions, while “the liberal idea presupposes that nothing needs to be done, that migrants can rob, rape, steel, but that we must defend their rights… What rights? You broke a rule—you are punished!”

    The migrant crisis is a perfect example of how liberalism has outlived its usefulness. Liberalism offers two ways forward, both of which are fatal to it. One approach is distinctly illiberal: halt the influx of migrants by any means necessary; insist that the migrants already in the country either conform to a strict set of requirements, including demonstrated competency in the nation’s language, detailed knowledge of its laws and administrative systems, strict obedience to its laws and demonstrated preference and respect for the customs and culture of the native population—or be not so much deported as expelled. The other approach is liberal at first: allow the influx to continue, do not hinder the formation of foreign ghettos and enclaves which native citizens and officials dare not enter, and eventually surrender to Sharia law or other forms of foreign dictate—guaranteeing the eventual death of the liberal idea along with much of the native population. Thus, the choice is between killing the liberal idea but saving the native population or letting the liberal idea die willy-nilly, taking the native population along with it. It offers no solution at all.

    ************

    • JohnAZ July 2, 2019 at 11:22 am #

      Well written!

      The native population must first recognize that there is a problem. Our biggest current problem is that the enemy of the native, yes European Caucasian Population, is itself, a group of White idiots that are giving away American heritage. So yes, the Whites better get their act together and be willing to fight for the cause. The second step is to grow a set of cojones big enough to offset the onslaught.

      Control the borders! Without that starting point, the rest is useless. Hand the keys to he country to the global Liberals.

      The only way to control the immigration, trafficking and drugs at the border is a wall, period, one tall enough and into the ground far enough to stop 99% of the illegals. The other 1% that figure out how to get in, we probably want anyway.

      I will say it again and again, the enemy of the native population of this country is the Democratic Party, and not the GOP. I would love to see the indigents invade Pelosi’s space in California and Schumer’s in New York.

      • SoftStarLight July 2, 2019 at 11:52 am #

        The GOP is not the enemy of the native population? John you know that is way off. Many within the GOP are in lock step with the Chamber of Commerce and want to flood this country with cheap labor. Additionally, the GOP was in charge of the entire government for two years and did nothing about immigration or the border. This is not even addressing their support for foreign wars and interventions. As long as you continue to give them a pass then there isn’t any way to move forward. The GOP and Dems all work for the same donors at the end of the day. And they have the same agenda but they work the crowd in different ways. Trump was never really a GOP guy anyway according to conventional wisdom.

          And he doesn’t think we are special anyway. As long as the Non-Whites adopt our Culture, everything is fine. But why would they? Why adopt a Culture of people too weak to keep them out?

          If they had stayed home and adopted our Culture THERE, I would be far more impressed than the superficial lip service that they give here – and even that is fading since they don’t need to do it anymore.

          Alex Jones, the same. He said, So what if a hundred million more Blacks and a hundred million more Browns entered America as long as they assimilated? Such complete ignorance of psychology, sociology, ecology, and economics is not rare, alas.

          • SoftStarLight July 2, 2019 at 1:52 pm #

            It’s amazing to me that men of such knowledge adamantly refuse to acknowledge that no people group will willingly give up their identity unless they are forced to do so, and even then there are plenty of examples of people not abiding by such oppression. Then there is the whole psychology of people being attracted to winners and not so much to losers. And in today’s America, Whites are talked about openly and everywhere as the demographic and cultural losers. The Browns, the Blacks, the Muslims, all types of foreigners are seen as the winners and they are very open about their plans to usurp and displace Whites. Ilhan Omar recently said that America is not a country of White people. Who is she to say anything about it? She is not an ethnic or cultural American. But yeah, these guys just don’t care. And apparently they think immigrants are going to assimilate somehow into a culture that makes no demand for assimilation. It’s very sad. The world has changed but in their mind they still live in an America that doesn’t exist anymore.

          • Janos Skorenzy July 2, 2019 at 2:19 pm #

            No one would ever give up their identity? Yes – only Whites would. Were Special. It used to be in good way, now it’s in a Special Olympics way. Christianity changed us. And when it corrupted, it brought us down even more. But we’re still different, though that might be changing. Paganism is obviously on the rise, most of it decadent but some of it healthy. We need the latter since Christianity isn’t going to regenerate in time to save us, except in small enclaves and churches I’m afraid.

      • Walter B July 2, 2019 at 1:50 pm #

        Yes John SSL is right, the GOP is also the enemy, even if they are not as rabid as the democrats, they are still just as corrupt. The best evidence to this effect is how they too have fought DJT and still are not coming to his aid, at least not in any real way. Here in NJ the heart of left loonie-ism, the loser GOP has finally taken up the “don’t fight Trump” mantra ,but it is too late IMHO for them to become relevant.

        In our small municipality we have reached across the aisle and teamed up with concerned citizens who realize that it is the quality of the individual rather that the political affiliation that gets results. We were able to throw out a four term career politician and next year everything changes. Although this can probably not be done on a national basis, until we create a group that has value, those who hold office shall continue to have NO value.

        • JohnAZ July 2, 2019 at 5:38 pm #

          The gist of my message is always that the Deep State is the enemy to America. The RINO portion of the GOP is a part of the Deep State. The Trump GOP, Lindsey Graham is an example, has realized what the Deep State is up to and are trying to do something about it. So yeah, part of the GOP is a traitorous lot with Mitt Romney and John Kasich in the lead.

          The Democratic Party however is the main culprit here. The Leftist drive is what is destroying the country. If you’all could get rid of one element to stop the down slide, would it be the Dems or the GOP. I know where my vote would be.

      Straight Pride organizer Mark Sahady announced the parade on Facebook, claiming he received permits for the event that would likely take place on August 31.

      But Sahady isn’t just a particularly aggrieved straight dude. Instead, he has a long history participating in controversial right-wing events around Boston as an organizer for Resist Marxism, a group Chapman founded at the height of the fame he earned attacking left-wing anti-fascist activists with his eponymous “stick.”

      Chapman appears to no longer be involved with the group now that he’s facing felony charges in two states over two assaults. But Sahady has taken up his position, organizing Resist Marxism events around the Boston area.

          What happened in the United States, and how did it happen? In the United States, the leading US companies –the companies, their managers, shareholders and partners – made use of these benefits. The middle class hardly benefitted from globalization. The take-home pay in the US (we are likely to talk later about real incomes in Russia, which need special attention from the Government). The middle class in the United States has not benefited from globalisation; it was left out when this pie was divided up.

          Smart as Putin is he would not believe something like this just because he figured it out. This is info that can be fact checked. Unless Russian intelligence is as incompetent and self serving as the American machine is the following must be true.

          The middle class in the United States has not benefited from globalization V. P.

            Smart as Putin is he would not believe something like this just because he figured it out. This is info that can be fact checked. Unless Russian intelligence is as incompetent and self serving as the American machine is the following must be true.

            I saw Putin & Trump sitting in chairs & laughing about our elections. Putin never looked more malevolent than he did at that moment. He’s got Trump’s number, as do many of the others, and he’s playing Trump like a one string fiddle. Easy to do, when you know that Trump is a narcissist.

    Putinomics 101 (Cont)

    As I have already written, after 2000, the liberal economic model in Russia forced the entire country to work for the military-industrial complex, and as a result of this maneuver, Russia for the first time in its history gained a decisive military advantage that made the new cold war meaningless and turned the discussion of the possibility of hot war to the purely theological level.

    By theological level, I mean the well-known argument of the Russian president about who goes where after a nuclear war – despite the playful form, it speaks of very serious things.

    Vladimir Putin took the office of President of the Russian Federation at the moment when it already had the economic model that still exists with major, but not fundamental, changes, and I call the Putinomics these changes that Putin made to the system that was created in the 80s, but in the 90s it was adapted to the realities of the capitalist world, in which the USSR ceased to exist, and the globalists-liberals of the Clinton pack, about which the Russian president spoke 4 days ago, prevailed.

    Unfortunately, this system, or rather, this economic model still remains an undescribed economic theory and does not even have a name. And we still do not know how it works, but if you approach it as a black box and track how the Gorbachev system at the entrance turned into Putinominics at the exit, then you can guess what is inside it if you ask it questions in the form of thought experiments.

    And I’ll say right away that the main result of this thought experiments will be increased confidence in Vladimir Putin, despite the well-grounded drop in his rating, if of course we do not assume that he reads the CFN and the rubbish I am carrying here and start the revolution from above immediately.

    The problem is that I don’t want an immediate revolution from above and do not advise him to do it, but I prefer to strengthen the historical optimism of the citizens of Russia, who by the will of fate had to go through rather terrible times when the Motherland told them: “I don’t need you anymore! Survive as you see fit!”

    In fact, all this is obsession, false memory. The Motherland didn’t say anything of the kind, and it was all invented by people who, in the 1992 approached actor Lanovoy at the WTO restaurant and mockingly asked him: “Well, old man, now you understand that there is such a profession – to sell Motherland!”

    Suffice it to recall that yesterday was the 27th anniversary of the devaluation of the ruble against the dollar 220 times, which simultaneously impoverished 140 million citizens of the Russian Federation:

    On July 1, 1992, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation issued a statement “On the official exchange rate of the ruble,” the Bank of Russia equalized the official exchange rate of the US dollar with the commercial exchange rate, raising it from 56 kopecks to 125 rubles.

    And if you read that statement of the Central Bank of Russia carefully, it turns out that it did not devalue the ruble, since the commercial exchange rate is being determined by trades, in which only legal entities (companies or organizations) participated and at these trades, even if to disregard enormous abuses, the rate of non-cash ruble was determined.

    So the Central Bank equalized NOT the official exchange rate of the US dollar with the commercial exchange rate, but the rate of cash-ruble to non-cash ruble, which in 1981 was quite officially four times more than non-cash ruble.

    Indeed, for example, in construction, in order to receive one ruble of salary (cash ruble), it was necessary to officially fulfill the contract in amount of 4 rubles.

    Naturally, by July 1, 1992, those who had the opportunity to convert a non-cash ruble into dollars had already done so a long time ago, and the $1 to 125 ruble exchange rate determined on the stock exchange had nothing to do with the real ruble exchange rate and was determined only by the amount of non-cash billions which the Soviet State, seized by the Black World Project, transferred to its “perfecti” for conversion into dollars, so that they could buy property when the Soviet State would hit a copper pan with a bang:

    On October 26, 1990, USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev signed a decree “On the introduction of the ruble’s commercial exchange rate to foreign currencies and measures to create an all-Union foreign exchange market.” According to the decree, in addition to the official rate set by the USSR State Bank, a commercial rate was introduced, at which, from January 1, 1991, legal entities (companies) could buy currency for rubles. The commercial dollar exchange rate was set for the first time on November 1, 1990 at the level of 1.8 rubles per dollar, while the official rate remained the same – 55 kopecks.

    And as I wrote in the previous post of this series, the last generation of the Soviet generation can be proud that in 1991 it supported Boris Nikolayevich Yeltsin, who stalled this wagon, the purpose of which was not only to break the backbone of Historical Russia but also to reduce the population on its territory ten times at least.

    Indeed, as a result of the changes that occurred in the socialist economy in the “damned” 80s, and not at all in the 1990s, economic liberalism took on the role of collective farms and the GULAG in 2000, and Russian people suffered the consequences of this invention for a reason, in order to protect the Motherland from worse misfortunes than 10 Chubais (I wanted to write 10 thousand Chubais, but the Universe could not stand such a number of redhead spawns of Hell)

      That Pandora needs to keep her box under tighter control! She always was a loose and wanton little hussy, even by the Devil’s own admittedly modest standards.
