The Washington political scene is looking less like The Apprentice and more and more like the old Marlon Perkins Wild Kingdom show, with giant crocodiles slithering down the muddy banks to encircle Donald Trump paddling fecklessly in his leaky dugout while a chorus of angry birds shrieks in the surrounding treetops. Yes, it really looks that bad all of a sudden for Ole Number 45, the Golden Golem.

RussiaGate is flaring to a toxic shock level event. Everything that spun out of Monday’s House Intelligence Committee hearing made all parties look bad. The spooks are everywhere and nowhere. The spooks are leaking to the press. The president is tweeting instead of governing. The two parties are literally at war in congress, and the news media is playing it all like a Stockhausen cantata for kazoo and trashcan lid.

One can’t help marveling at the way the “Russian interference” motif has shifted the spotlight off the substance of what Wikileaks revealed about Clinton Foundation and DNC misdeeds onto Trump campaign officials “colluding” with Russians, supposedly to support their interference in the election. It’s true that the election is way over and the public is no longer concerned with Hillary or her foundation (which is closing shop anyway). But the switcheroo is impressive, and quite confusing, considering recently retired NSA James Clapper just two weeks ago said on NBC’s Meet the Press that there was “no evidence” of collusion Between Trump and Russia. Okay… uh, say what?

On Monday, FBI Director James Comey revealed that his agency had been investigating the Trump Campaign since at least last August. Is that so…? Investigating how? Some sort of electronic surveillance? Well, what else would they do nowadays? Send a gumshoe to a hotel room where he could press his ear on a drinking glass against the wall to eavesdrop on Paul Manafort? I don’t think so. Of course they were sifting through emails, phone calls, and every other sort of electronic communication.

Trump’s big blunder was to tweet that he’d been “wiretapped.” Like the FBI patched into a bunch of cables with alligator clips in the basement of Trump Tower … or planted a “bug” in the earpiece of his bedside phone. How quaint. We also don’t have ice boxes anymore, though plenty of struggling weight-watchers across the land speak guiltily of “raiding the icebox.” But if it’s true, as Mr. Comey said, that the FBI had been investigating Trump’s campaign, the people around him, and Trump himself, since August, how could they not have captured some of Trump’s conversations?

Anyway, the action on Monday shifted to the question of how General Michael Flynn was “unmasked” after the CIA recorded a phone conversation between him and the Russian ambassador. (The CIA is expressly forbidden from spying on US citizens, and anything overheard incidentally when bugging foreigners is supposed to remain suppressed or “masked.”) Somebody at the CIA just handed the info straight to The New York Times, The WashPo, and CNN. That story broke in back in January. How come the CIA has not rooted out the culprit and handed him/her/zhe over to the Department of Justice?

For the record, apart from the General Flynn matter, I have no idea what connections Trump & Co. may have had with Russia before, during, or after the election. But nobody has yet demonstrated that the allegations about Hillary, her email, her foundation, the DNCs treatment of Senator Sanders, or the John Podesta letters were anything but truthful, either, and that was why Hillary lost the election.

It is also worth considering that candidates for high office in all advanced nations have relationships with people in other countries. It’s not against the law per se to speak to people in Portugal, Singapore, Germany, Argentina, and a hundred other places, including, yes, Russia — which, by the way, is no longer a communist imperium bent on world domination, though Senator Chuck Schumer would like you to think so.

Then, on Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee chair Devin Nunes (R-Cal) told the news media that an “unnamed source” in the Intel community informed him that Trump had indeed been surveilled during the transition period following the election. Was he just blowing smoke up America’s ass? I guess we’ll have to stand by on that one.

So, the long and the short of it is that the RussiaGate story is spinning out of control, and Trump’s adversaries — who go well beyond Congress into the Deep State — might be getting enough leverage to dump Trump. Either they will maneuver him and his people into some kind of perjury rap, or they will tie up the government in such a web of investigative procedural rigmarole that all the country lawyers who ever snapped their galluses will never be able to unravel it.

While the nation remains entertained by all this, the Potemkin financial system will wobble, crash, and burn and the humiliation of Donald Trump will be complete. Abandoned by the Republican Party, isolated and crazed in the White House, tweeting out mad appeals to heaven, he’ll either voluntarily pass the baton to Mike Pence or he will be declared unfit to serve and removed under the 25th amendment.

The after-effects of that will be something to behold: a “lose-lose” for both old-line political parties. The Trumpists will never forgive the Republican Party, and the Democrats will have gained nothing. Don’t let the door bang you on the butt on your way out.

    Actually, what Trump tweeted was that his “wires” had been tapped. Which, in its clumsily funny wording, evokes even more strongly JHK’s mocking picture of 50s-era spying techniques going on at Trump Tower.

    And what isn’t mentioned in today’s essay is that the head of the House committee charged with investigating the Russia-Trump campaign connections, Devin Nunes, ran straight to Trump himself and spilled what he knew—before even telling his committee members.

    I hear people say we could be heading for a “Constitutional Crisis.” I’d say we are in it NOW.

    In swamps,marshes, lowlands and other fetid, bug-infested, watery places; no animal is more ubiquitous than the leech.

    Doesn’t matter that other residents include gators, snapping turtles, cottonmouth snakes and other dangerous critters.

    Nope, it is the leeches that invariably latch on to a warm body and suck blood. That’s what they do. It’s their job.

    If President Trump was this moment pulled from his current up-to-his-armpits-in-the-mud position in the bog, we all would see his entire body covered with the blood suckers. It’s what “they” (the malevolent media, slimy politicians, putrid pundits, apparatchiks, corrupt career civil servants, welfare recipients etc., etc,- it’s a yuge bunch of critters) do. They are blood suckers. Parasites.

    I’m sure it provides a whole new perspective to the former reality TV program host.

    The anti-Trump frenzy kindled and kept ablaze by various interested parties seems to have unhinged our people. In some sections to be known as a supporter of the President can be a source of vitriol or worse from boisterous others. A sort of home spun Red Guard has taken to the streets, the airways and public assemblies to harass or threaten Trump loyalists. No dissent from political or social norm is tolerated by these zealots whose yearning for the old status quo is palpable. Perfectly normal citizens have been rioting, destroying property and duplicating the antics of Mao Zedong’s followers in the turbulent 60’s.

    • Petro March 24, 2017 at 8:42 am #

      With every passing day, it is Trump himself, and the blatantly greedy & unhinged people surrounding him that pour gasoline on the fiery frenzy. Unlike Democrats, who are generally more subtle and not quite as mean-spirited, with the Trump White House, what you see is what you get—and what they sow, so shall they reap.

      • routersurfer March 24, 2017 at 10:29 am #

        What we have gotten is a dimwit in the White House that does not understand high tech or politics. As far as the big time capitalist image–his IRS papers flamed that out. The only thing the GOP can do to save his Presidency is to pass the health care bill today. Without the deal maker myth in place what does President Trump have left ? War. So much for he will keep us out of war. He could be the next President Wilson.

        • zaphod42 March 24, 2017 at 10:46 am #

          Trump as Wilson? Hardly! Wilson for all the bad decisions he made, and those were legend, sort of “got it.” His two worst blunders? The Federal Reserve, and choosing England.

          And for as bright as Wilson undoubtedly was, Churchill was the winner, and certainly champion in political chicanery. Not once, but twice (the second one was actually part ii of the First Oil War, still ongoing).

          No… Trump is merely a shopworn effigy, waiting for the partisans to string him up. Enjoy the show!


          • routersurfer March 24, 2017 at 11:10 am #

            Thanks for reply. I was looking at it merely from candidate Trump running as someone that would keep us out of war. Like Wilson. It will be a great show. Hope we live passed the end of 45 rule.

          • venuspluto67 March 24, 2017 at 12:16 pm #

            And honestly, I think getting cashiered would probably be the best thing for Trump himself. I don’t think he ever really wanted to be president, he just said some things that resonated with a very angry and disaffected faction of the electorate, and his vain, shallow, narcissistic ego caused him to be swept away on the tide. If he’s forced out, of course he’ll be very butthurt about it, but I think being in the Oval Office for all four years would ultimately be much worse for him. Whether or not it would be worse for the country I can’t really say, but I sure wouldn’t be surprised if it were so.

          • shotho March 25, 2017 at 10:24 am #

            Don’t forget the IRS and League of Nations! But generally agree that Wilson was worst president ever.

    Let’s summarize. We are currently in the visible “meltdown phase” of governance. Meaning that governance has been progressively dissolving for years, but now it’s becoming obvious to even the dimmest of the dim. “Let all of the poisons that lurk in the mud, hatch out.” Well, now they are hatching out. Those that have been paying attention are not surprised.

    • Paulo March 24, 2017 at 9:56 am #

      What I thought was astounding that right after the election Sir Trump filed his ‘papers’ for 2020 and began a fund raising campaign. This ‘outsider’, openly talked about ‘8 years’.

      This was after less than a week into the job!!

      Now, his lack of ability is quite obvious, and his Presidency is most certainly NOT tremendous, wonderful, and/or outstanding, (despite how often he says it). I would hazard a guess that at least 60% of Americans are embarassed by Trump.

      The only conclusion I have made, besides watching the unwind of the Empire and a consumer society, is that I should have actually tried a bit harder to make more money along the way. After all, if an Idiot like Trump can be rich, what excuse is there for the rest of us?

      Oh yeah, we might have to play a buffon and steal from others.

      I sure would like to see those tax returns. Pride goeth before the fall, for sure.

            Wiretapping is an old but useful term that has survived the transition into the Cyber Age as a general term indicating surveillance of individuals, organizations, or nations. The NY Times itself uses it – or at least they did until Trump was vindicated. Perhaps they’ll delete the word now.

            I am old enough to have known a man who went out for a spin in a new-fangled invention called the motor car. Or machine, to those in the know. It had a tiller for steering. He said he got up to 10 mph and lost control.

            I wore shirts with pearl buttons. I knew a man who said ‘yon end.’ If I had helped to build the pyramids, I would feel infinitely superior to those callow youts who built the cathedrals. I did not misspell that word.

      Please read JHK’s bio. Perkins ran a show called Wild Kingdom on TV…… that box with the bright light that turned two or three generations of Americans into a nation that would run slimy crap like Clintons and Trump’s for high office. BTW, the Deep State ended the Republic in 1972. Everything passed that date is farce. The replacement for Wild Kingdom is run by Jack Hanna. Hope this helps. Yes, I am old as dirt. Read The Fall Of The Roman Empire or even The Foundation books by Asimov. The skeleton of the former is based on the latter. Now back to rereading The End of Normal. One of Jim’s great podcasts brought the book up and it seems like the perfect time to revisit. Good read. Been a fan of both Galbraith’s for five decades. Forgive the grammar and such…… small screen and old dim brain.

    Maybe one reason HRC lost is because she is a woman and for years there has been a Republican war on women. That war on women continues and is in evidence in the Trumpcare bill to be voted on today.

    The Trumpcare bill gives states the ability to revoke Medicaid from new mothers if they don’t find work within 60 days of giving birth. That is two months after giving birth. Work requirements disproportionately impact women as they currently account for 62% of Medicaid enrollees who are not working.

    And by eliminating the essential health benefits, or EHB, provision, which requires plans to cover maternity and newborns, the bill makes it less likely that plans will cover maternity care at all.

    Then there is birth control. The “controversial” product that tens of millions of women, including Republicans, not only rely on, but support would become more expensive for many women who have birth control covered by Medicaid, as a result of the Medicaid cuts the GOP proposes. Paying out of pocket for birth control can cost a woman up to $600 per year, and for the 16.7 million women who benefit from Medicaid, that simply isn’t affordable.

    These policies treat women like an opportunity for cost savings, not the mothers, grandmothers, caregivers and hardworking members of society who deserve better.

          Yes, Thwack is right and so are you. Blacks and Women are much the same and are allied against White Men and Western Civilization.

          When millions of young Muslim Men march into Germany, what happens from a woman’s point of view? Consumer demand increases and they become a more valuable commodity. The price of their pussy goes up as Thwack might say. Why wouldn’t they want that? White Men have failed the Feminist Shit Test and allowed Women to become unmarryable. Muslim barbarians will just take what they want and that excites Women. They want husbands and children and at some level, know what horrors they are.

          Just saw on Nightline last night: there’s a small but growing movement where women marry themselves – complete with wedding dress, ring, and ceremony. This is a most profound degeneracy that cannot continue – and thus will not.

      You just laid it out in the open, Janet. You don’t want equal rights, you want special privileges for women. And you believe it is proper and fitting that The State should assume the role of husband and father to help promote your anti-family, anti-male agenda.

      Why is it unduly burdensome for a woman to spend $600 a year of her own money on birth control? Does the Constitution promise to pay for everyone’s sexual fun? Sex is a choice, if you can’t pay, don’t play.

      I’ll bet, you think it’s OK that someone is forced by law to spend $600 a month on shitty insurance under Obamacare.

    Detroit Real Estate Value Drops Below Tiny Ann Arbor


    “The value of all the real estate in Ann Arbor, the home of the University of Michigan, is greater than all the real estate in Detroit. The numbers are based on a study by Bridge Magazine.

    “Ann Arbor’s population is slightly less than 118,000. Detroit’s is just below 678,000. Ann Arbor occupies 28 square miles. The similar number for Detroit is 143 square miles.

    “The data show just how much the value of a vast area of Detroit’s real estate has cratered. Downtown by the Detroit River, many of the buildings have been renovated by developers. This makes the real estate there more valuable, which means the valuations in the rest of Detroit are even worse than the number mentioned in the study.

    “One of the contributors to the low Detroit figure has to be the vast portion of the city that is in ruins, with tens of thousands of unoccupied homes. Among the way the local government has dealt with this is by bulldozing these homes. However, that is a job that is far from finished.

    “According to a report on the Bridge Magazine study in Crain’s Detroit Business: ‘Last year, Ann Arbor’s total assessed property value, which is half of market value, was $6.38 billion, according to data compiled by Bridge Magazine, while Detroit’s was $5.43 billion; the year before, Ann Arbor was $5.95 billion, just ahead of Detroit’s $5.91 billion.’

    “Also: ‘The state-equalized values are typically considered half of the market value, which puts Ann Arbor at $12.76 billion and Detroit at $10.86 billion for 2016. The figures include residential, commercial, industrial and development properties.’

    “Proponents of the Detroit turnaround have been criticized for using the downtown as a measure of the rest of the city. That is not even close to accurate.”

    I post this knowing how much the CFN commentariat enjoys blaming the victims as long as they’re minorities. Here’s your red meat, now feast away.

      • Elrond Hubbard March 24, 2017 at 3:31 pm #

        This from a couple of years back:

        Pontiac Silverdome on sale for $30 million

        “The Silverdome property has been owned since 2009 by the Triple Investment Group, which bought it at auction from the City of Pontiac for $583,000. The group is controlled by the family of Andreas Apostolopoulos, who is also owner of downtown Detroit’s Penobscot Building.”

      I was always under the impression. whether it was true or false, that places like Detroit were driven into near bankruptcy by the thieves like Jon Corzine on Wall Street who bamboozled the managers of the funds out of all of their cash. I offer the recent and massive construction projects in NYC and places like Hoboken, NJ as evidence to where the profits were sent.

      • Elrond Hubbard March 26, 2017 at 12:53 pm #

        Something like that happened to Detroit under former mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, yes. This was around the time of other shady deals in the runup to the crash of 2008, like this one Matt Taibbi wrote about:


        But the collapse of Detroit took a lot longer than that — it was a matter of disinvestment and hollowing out over the course of decades.

    Buck Stud March 24, 2017 –“Do you expect no reaction, no act of revenge however small, to the daily bombing of Muslim countries by Christians?”

    So is this why Theo Van Gogh was murdered by a Muslim religious fanatic? Or because Van Gogh made some not so flattering observations concerning the inherent intolerance of Islam…observations that got him killed in his native land by a Muslim interlocutor.

    This is a world at war.
    Clash of civilization w barbarians, inside the gates this time.

    There are now 1 million Muslims in the metro London area.

    First off, I’m not a Trump fan. BUT, in my opinion, he’s been treated unfairly. Americans seem to always need a whipping boy for their own failings (a hallmark of a welfare society) and voila! Here comes Trump.

    The Hillary supporters have quite blatantly gone out of their way to throw spanners in the governmental works. I say give Trump a chance to hang himself with his own rope; after all, he was elected president. I can’t remember when the people last obstructed a sitting president so strongly (ok, maybe Nixon during Watergate).

    Trump’s presidential agenda is all wrong. Spending billions to construct a wall? Come on. His healthcare plan is useless, actually worse than useless, because without true reform, healthcare will bring America down financially in the next several years.

    Cutting taxes while spending a trillion on loan infrastructure? Can’t happen without financial ruin. Etc, etc. But he got elected; let him run the country.

    And as far as Trump being a poor or failed businessman and a dummy? Really? He’s lived a life of extreme luxury, has always been in the spotlight, and managed to get himself elected POTUS. Can’t be much of a dummy.

    And this bankruptcy stuff? I’ve known several very wealthy real estate developers (centi-millionaires), and at one time or another they all declared bankruptcy. What non-businessmen may not realize is that bankruptcy is nothing more than a no-big-deal financial tool to clear out an investment that turned bad, while still being able to enjoy the benefits of all the good investments. When one declares bankruptcy, it does not mean one is a bad businessman.

      beantownbill, I’m not a Trump fan either, but I voted for him twice, in the primary and general election. I like the line about Democrats throwing spanners into governmental works (spokes). I am a fan of British motorcycles. The dems are doing the same thing the reps did when Obama was elected. Total obstructionism. It was and is to be expected. I believe the Trump agenda, at least concerning immigration is spot on. Some say things are already improving with a few jobs coming back or remaining. Bullshit. Until the border is controlled by a wall, army, mines, whatever, and that travel ban is put into effect, then absolutely nothing of value has been accomplished. I’m not sure about Trump’s intellect. Its hard to believe he could be as dumb as he acts. He eerily reminds me of an old acquaintance who is the ultimate narcissist. Said person has a relatively normal to high IQ but is totally lacking in all social grace. He is a rude, obnoxious, boorish, bloviating bastard. I don’t believe anyone can fix the mess the whole world is in. It will have to crash and burn before it gets better, if it ever does. Trump may be a better businessman than some think. But, big business, crony capitalism and greed helped get us in our current predicament. To hell with the trade agreements. Live local. A little nationalism may go a long way.

      “Well then who created the universe?”

      Answer: Illogical question; not who but what is the question. Most likely answer is a random quantum fluctuation in space/time which underwent an incredible expansion rate of about 10^26 times, known in Cosmology as the Inflation, from about 10^-36 seconds until about 10^-32 seconds subsequent to the initiation of what is now known as the Big Bang.

            I don’t see “abounding” theories with respect to the Universe expanding, accelerating, dark matter, dark energy and negative pressure driving the expansion of the universe. Hubble determined that the Universe was expanding in 1929, in 1998 two independent cosmological teams determined that the rate of expansion of the Universe is accelerating and no cyclic Big Bang recurring event is in it’s future. The Baryonic matter in the universe which makes up the matter that we can see and touch, stars, galaxies, planets, gas clouds,, living critters/plants including us consist of about 1% of the mass of the universe, dark matter, which no one has any theories as to what it is, consists of about 30% of the mass in the universe and the mass of dark energy of so called empty space produced by the quantum fluctuations which spontaneously form and annihilate mass from energy and energy from mass on an infinitesimal time scale is the backbone of quantum mechanical theory. A scientific theory is an equation or set of equations which a scientist/physicist has deduced from a rigorous investigation of some particular phenomena based upon the concepts/foundations laid out by the theoretical intellectual giants who preceded us such as Newton, Maxwell, Dirac, Feynman ….. . From these foundational figures current and future physicists take up the exotic mathematics of the universe to make sense of it. A scientific theory MUST be able to predict the outcomes of experimental physics and those that cannot are modified if possible and discarded if not.

            If you are interested in the real world/universe go to the internet and search about for names such as Neil deGrasse Tyson, Lawrence Krauss, Richard Feynman, David Butler, Brian Cox, …… Stairways to the real stars await you in their thrall.

          Cosmic Inflation. The universe in which we exist inflated from ~diameter of a proton (~1*10^-15 meters) to diameter of a softball/baseball (~.102 meters) in (~3*10-33 seconds). This means that at the end of the inflationary period the radius of the universe had expanded to ~.0508 meters in radius minus its’ starting radius of 5*10-14 meters which is pretty damn close to .0508 meters of radius. Therefore the radial expansion of the universe was on the order of .0508 M/3*10^-33Sec or 5.08*10^30 M/Sec which is 5.08*10^27 Kilometers/Sec. The Speed of light in so called empty space is ~3*10^5 Kilometers/Sec therefore expanded at ~5.08*10^27 KM/S divided by 3*10^5 KM/S or ~1.7*10^22 times faster than the speed of light. Therefore there was no way for information about what was going on in any given portion of the inflating universe to affect any other portion because nothing can travel faster than the speed of light within the universe so the the early universe expanded incredibly smoothly. Note that I said nothing can travel faster than the speed of light within the universe I did not say that the universe cannot expand faster than the speed of light.

          If cosmic inflation has peaked your interest look up physicist Alan Guth he came up with the idea less than 40 years ago. As one of my favorite most physicists Lawrence Krauss likes to describe inflation “in a billionth of a billionth of a billionth of a second the early universe expanded to the size of a baseball from the size of a proton”.

            Reading Hawking, I understand what he is proposing, but I cannot accept what he says…his theories are too inductive. Again, I am ignorant. In Quantum Physics I see too many theories, and too few laws. Hawking might as well give credit to Jesus for what he cannot explain otherwise.

    Hoo-boy, sez the talking-heads and opinion-makers to the nods of Bubble-land bullshitters, Trump’s claim that Obama had him wiretapped was totally off the wall, a new low in deplorableness from a man that is clearly unhinged and needs a mental-health time out.

    Except just a cotton-pickin’ minnit. Didn’t FBI Director Comey just confirm that Trump and his boys WERE “wiretapped”?

    BUT, say the Greatly-Wise and Highly-Credentialed, Trump said that Obama ordered it.

    So is that a false claim?

    So, may I ask, even if the claim is false, that Obama DIDN’T order no stinkin’ wiretap, what the fuck difference does it make?

    Did Obama know about the surveillance? Did he bother to ask for the basis for it? Did Obama express any concerns about propriety? Did he express concern about optics? I mean, this was a duly nominated candidate for president that a law enforcement agency was following.

    Wasn’t Obama the man in charge? Wasn’t he the chief executive? Does he have no power to ask questions? Doesn’t the buck stop with him? Does he have no discretion to suggest that maybe such an FBI investigation stinks to high heaven, that it looks like a blatant attempt to dig up dirt, that it has all the look of something that an Asiatic despot, like Putin, would do to a political opponent? Couldn’t Obama ask how is such a police investigation in any way consistent with law, order, democracy and the American Way?

    Never mind custom, which dictates that political parties can go about their activities without state harassment or surveillance, and never mind propriety, which is questionable, what about the LEGALITY of it? And did Obama demand to see factual EVIDENCE that underlay the surveillance effort? Crapper himself, on Sunday morning TV, said there was none.

    Now just imagine that it was the FBI under a Republican administration that was investigating a Democrat presidential nominee. Can you imagine the shit-storm? You’d never hear the end of it, there would accusations of inappropriate and illegal meddling by state paramilitary organizations, accusations that the Deep State tried to to tilt the election, the New Yorker would be foaming at the mouth, David Brooks would require sedation, street demonstrations by the high-minded and highly enlightened would be the order of the day.

    To my mind, whether Obama personally ordered surveillance is immaterial. It may be worse if he did order it, but not all that much worse because the fact is that it happened under his administration and right under his nose. In the immortal words of Harry Houdini the buck stops with him.

    And, on the face of it, the very fact it happened is horrifying. This is how despotism takes shape. Now, what did President Obama know and when did he know it?

      By your assessment an FBI investigation into a foreign power’s attempted influence upon a US Presidential election, sanctioned by a court order, which looks to uncovers potential collusion between one of the candidates and let us say the Russians is how despotism takes shape. Furthermore you point towards Obama as the despot, who quietly turned the reins of power over to tRump and walked away while Hillary likewise walked away with no reins of power to surrender. A very strange display of despotism on the part of Hillary and Obama, eh?

      Interestingly my assessment is that the Russians likely were successful with their despot insertion activities in that tRump is as, if not more, despotic than the last POTUS, in my lifetime, with such leanings, Tricky Dick Nixon.

    Please for the LuvaMike,

    There is no new republic, and there will be no new republic. There will only be the old republic still trying to flex its atrophied muscles and sliding ever-deeper into decay. Until that decay is complete, and it could take a few decades, there will be no new republic. When there is a new republic, it probably will be more like JHK’s World Made by Hand than like any sort of Ayn Rand fantasies. IMHO, she was a nutjob, and her character John Galt was a douchebag. Would it be too much to ask for you to cease and desist with the new republic thing here? Might I suggest you start your own new republic blog? You might end up with millions of followers if you did.

        There can only be ONE! The Highlanders must fight until only one remains. Go to Folsom St Fair: does your culture really deserve to survive? You’ll know the Truth if you remain outwardly quiet (mind and emotions stilled) and look deep inside.

    Beantown, don’t you know to not use that word “morality”. It gets the eyeballs of the highly illuminated a-rollin’. Only hicks say it. And it conjures images of Harper Valley hypocrites that maybe ought to keep the blinds a bit further down at night.

    The greatly sophisticated advertise as a mark of their own virtue and learnedness an inability to discern male from female, citizen from non-citizen, friend from foe and, especially, right from wrong. In their hands straight-forward issues get tangled in irrelevancies and incomprehensible jargon. They tell us that without their great expertise no progress is possible. But, to these people, words have no meaning, actions have no consequence, common sense has no application and, as JHK sez, anything goes. Does it surprise anyone that in such a climate that drug-addled, cum-spattered, disease-riddled entertainers actually get a wide hearing?

    Anyway, for your viewing and listening enjoyment:

    You have certainly painted an interesting picture of the U.S. Government Cesspool and it happenings these days. I prefer cesspool over swamp because a Swamp is actually a living, functioning ecosystem that has much value to the planet. Our government in all it’s trappings is simply a large pit of crap, rotting, decaying, and stinking to high heaven. It’s only accomplishments are to steal from those who actually work and function productively and entertain the turds with parties, orgies, and mass quantities of drugs and alcohol to ease their guilt. Yes it is a lose-lose result we shall all see when this farce plays out. We the working losers will be the first to perish, but the turds will surely die off as well once we are no long there to support them. Oh well, it happened to better empires than ours.

    “In the New Republic, members enjoy building out properties and the local means of production.”~JG

    Reads romantic. Like a pure form of Libertarianism which is of course the problem: Achieving purity.

    But yes, in a pure form it would solve a lot of issues, such as the college debt/exorbitant medical costs.

    The problem is the same human beings from the Old Republic will still be populating the New Republic. Call me a pessimist, but history pretty much demonstrates that human beings are not “ideal” and their inherent impurity inevitably contaminates the best of intentions, ideological, political, what have you.

    For instance, do you have any doubt that sooner or later corrupt individuals will rise to the level of “Robber Baron” status and begin to monopolize the “local means of production” to the detriment of the initial founders/ ethical true believers?

    Wash, rinse, repeat–we’ve seen this act before and we’re always going to see it again: It’s hardwired into the DNA.

    From a presentation standpoint you do posses one structural and strategic semiotic advantage, however. In Derridean terms, they speak of the “unmarked” and “marked” word/concept.

    “The Old Republic” is a defined/marked term while “The New Republic” is not yet defined by its past/history. Thus, the “New Republic” concept has more mobility, agility and conceptual alacrity, enabling readers, especially those aching to believe, to complete their romantic, idealized notions via an imagination not yet immobilized by the ball and chain of actual past reality.

    Ironically, this is a very old presentation method; some might even derisively term it “propaganda”.

    The Swamp Drains Trump? Not so fast. The Koch brothers were supporting the Freedom Caucus in order to block Trump on the Trumpcare bill.

    This morning Trump formally green-lighted the Keystone XL pipeline, an $8 billion project the Koch brothers wanted.

    So there’s your quid pro quo.

    If the Koch brothers now instruct the Freedom Caucus to let the Trumpcare bill pass, then Trump will have the last laugh.

    The congressional representatives appear to be puppets who have no principles. They just take orders from whomever is prepared to make the highest bid for their votes. Similar to how Putin puppets work.

    The fact that under Trumpcare seniors in the 50 to 64 year old age range will pay four to five times higher monthly premiums for health care appears to be of no real concern.

The Three-Fifths Compromise is found in Article 1, Section 2, Paragraph 3 of the United States Constitution.

      Speaking of dropping the ball, viewing some human beings primarily as property was an epic fumble.

    Our esteemed host, as usual, underestimates the governing abilities of Mr. Trump, and more importantly, the abilities of a powerful intellectual center, which works for him.

    The appearance of quotes around the word “wiretapping” in the Trump’s tweet shows that this tweet was not just thought through to the last detail, but also that the whole unit of that intellectual center have worked on it, the center which I hope Hillary is not capable to eavesdrop on.

    The fact of presence of such center is clear from the elaboration of this tweet, and the fact that Clintonoids can’t control it is clear from the first reaction of the flying monkeys to this tweet.

    Trump accused Obama of organizing the eavesdropping, which was ordered not by Obama, but by the Wicked Witch of the West, because only the status of the President acting as the accusation implies can really raise the status of the “wiretapping” case to the level of Watergate in which Hillary Clinton took a significant, if not the main and decisive role.

    The task of this tweet was to neutralize the attempts of the Clintonoids to create a commission of the Congress or appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the relations between Trump’s election campaign and Russian intelligence, so there is just as much basis for setting up such a commission as there are grounds for setting up a special commission to investigate the new Watergate.

    But over and above the task of this tweet was the final rout and cleansing not only of Bastinda, but of the whole organization of the flying monkeys.

    Indeed, such an investigation will undoubtedly begin with the lower-level actors who are experienced and will immediately realize that they are threatened by a “cleanup” on the part of the customer.

    Therefore, they will undoubtedly cooperate with Trump and the thread will lead to the real customer, and not to Obama.

    That will allow Trump to raise the issue of the Hillary Clinton’s coup d’état, which happened on the day of Hillary Clinton’s “endorsement” by Obama immediately after speaking at 6 am with Bernie Sanders about the total falsification of the election results in California.

    And for this it is only necessary to create an Independent Commission of the Congress to investigate the possible wiretapping of the candidate for President Trump, and then this commission will inevitably finish its business.

      Are you absolutely certain that you, FTM, are not far and away overestimating the intellectual abilities of tRump and his legions of mental midgets lying to the public for him and kissing his ass in private. Kellyanne Conjob was so brazen about her efforts to gain his favor as to brag in a televised interview that her performances are directed toward an audience of “one”

      As I am certain you know the “greatest deal maker” on Earth went down the shitter along with the smartest Speaker of the House, ever, yesterday and although I watch not television I have seen no Spicy or Conjob displaying their astronomical intellects, on the internet, to explain how the real culprits behind their loss in their first foray into “law making” are the Democrats as pronounced by the anointed one during his TV sitting of shame. What intellectual giant would expect the architects of the bill, tRump and Ryan were attempting to rip asunder, to assist these losers in their demolition derby, especially when the tRumpians were not even bright enough to ask the Dems for assistance?

    • aNanyMouse March 26, 2017 at 3:17 pm #

      Finca, the photos of the FIRST Tweet which I’ve seen don’t show quotes around the word “wiretap”, instead show it saying “… Obama gone to tap my phones….”
      Only in later tweets were there quotes around the key word, so I’ll guess that he didn’t consult the Intel people until after the first tweet.

    To a certain extent Trump finds himself in a position Putin was in during the summer of 2015, when intense artillery shelling of the Russian cities of Donetsk and Lugansk by Kiev Junta, instigated by the American Party of War, put Putin between a rock and a hard place – on one hand he had to invade Ukraine with regular Russian army and stop the killing of innocent civilians in Eastern Ukraine, but find himself at war with the united West and total blackout of the Russian Banking System (back then Russia was not ready for that contingency, but now is), or get impeached by angry Russians for not protecting their compatriots.

    Trump on one hand, could of course use his administrative resource – all the way to taking Brooklyn Clinton headquarters with special Marine units, but face the lack of confidence of the entire World in the currency of the country in the middle of the Hot Civil War.

    The dynamic between spectator and participant has always been interesting, from sports to politics, from psychological projection to the emotional.

    It’s inherent within the spectator to analyze and criticize. Could the spectator do better, does he really want to be the participant? I’m sure that at times, and to some extent, he thinks he can and he does.

    I don’t have any real political power besides my vote. I think that Mr. Kunstler has much more than any of us here, and that he exercises it fairly well. Who here wouldn’t like to have his voice?

    But here, Our voices are also heard, and we become more the participant, less the spectator. We can learn, but we also may be able to teach a bit.

    Trump is now The Participant in Pandemonium, and we, Spectators in and of the Swamp. To many, his journey has been more emotional than intellectual. What about our comments here? Aren’t many based on bare emotion, clothed in diaphanous intellectual raiment?

    Who knows what this flawed man foreshadows. Remember, the rich became richer under Obama also. But did he promote our sense of nation and make it safe? The answer is an obvious no.

    Health care itself is both an intellectual and emotional issue. How do we, the public, fit in? We have become victims instead of participants, also spectators watching ever increasing costs far out in the bleachers. Sure, the free market and profit are the roads to better health care. For the rich, yes. The bullshit coming out of Ryan’s mouth is near intolerable.

    Is Russia just a stalking horse being used by the Dems? Who knows. But I’d rather strong ties between Trump and Putin than Putin and Xi Jinping, with us left out.

    The swamp is now above my waders, but I’ve become more than just a spectator to the rising murk, somewhat consoled by the other participants around me.

    My hope is that Mr. Trump has the cunning, agility and luck to stay exactly a step and a half ahead of the hounds. Second wish, the hounds will have the strength to mount the chase for four years. With any luck it will be beyond debate that we don not have a government but, may I use our host’s terminology, we have a racket. I feel that we will not even begin to pickup with nation building again until voters put down the idea of term limits and replace the congress completely and often. As long as the majority believe they have something to gain by keeping a congressman we will have “status quo”. Should Mr. Trump cause the status quo to lose it’s shine he will have served well.

    Got that right, Mr. Ryan!

    Thank you, President Obama. Now 24 million Americans who like their Obamacare can keep their Obamacare.

    To CFN: 45 does not have the knowledge needed to be president. Nor does 45 have the competence to select people to surround him who do what they are doing. Here is the score. 45 is losing badly on his major initiatives of banning Muslims and repealing Obamacare.

      Not a good start for Trump. But he must be praised for fighting off seemingly indomitable forces and insurmountable odds and still winning.

      “Oh, would I but have such pluck, such daring!” Who of us here could have matched his feat, initially facing almost universal scorn and rejection? His overriding emotion was to save the nation, and great knowledge would help, but isn’t absolutely necessary to do that.

      It is great fun to watch the worms on the Left writhe and squiggle under his foot. He must do better, and then plant the foot firmly.

  39. janet March 24, 2017 at 11:07 pm #

    Trump does not care about human suffering. What he cares about is being anti-Obamacare. Before even taking office, and well before the Republican bid to repeal and “replace” the Affordable Care Act, Trump started saying the best political strategy for his party would be to let the law’s health insurance exchanges “collapse” and then blame Democrats for it.

    Trump’s not the only one floating this notion. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Friday also supports a strategy of “collapse and replace.”

    Let’s be plain about what these politicians are threatening to do.

    The president of the United States and members of the party that controls Congress are saying that they see problems in the health care system and their plan is to stand by and do nothing while people suffer.

    This is breathtakingly cynical, and reveals the Republican Party’s priorities. Getting rid of the dreaded Obamacare at any cost is more important to Trump and his party than acting to improve the health care system for the people they represent.

    Barack Obama is no longer president, but thumbing him in the eye and destroying his biggest accomplishment still outweighs taking even the most basic steps to provide relief to the health insurance consumers whose plight Republicans have so often and so vividly bemoaned.

    • benr March 25, 2017 at 6:07 pm #

    ” Well, I expect that Cold N Holefield has come to a bad end. His last update on his blog, as weeks ago reported by Q, was 18 Feb., and he has not been commenting on CFN since a few days after that. I expect he is in jail. ”

    Specifically , campus security’s number one priority is limiting / protecting the schools liability.
    ( Notice I don’t even know what school it was, what state, etc. I don’t have to. )

    Generally , campus security , the police, and the U.S. Army, don’t work for him, or for his daughter.
    That is no minor detail.
    It’s really the only detail that matters.

    ( That is what, in effect, the lawyers told him. Were they really to be faulted for telling him this TRUTH? )

    Justice is to be had —- if you can afford a $500 – dollar -an-hour lawyer.

    ( That is what, in effect, the lawyers told him. Were they really to be faulted for telling him this TRUTH? )

    There is no such thing as a ” fair trial ” .

    ( That is what, in effect, the lawyers told him. Were they really to be faulted for telling him this TRUTH? )

    Pedestrians , crime victims, AND THE ACCUSED , don’t really have any rights.
    ( If Cold did go to jail then he is going to learn the last part the hard way , And, perhaps, how the latter is twin brother or twin sister to the first two. )

    If campus security ….FOR ITS OWN REASONS ….had seen fit to fault the driver , then everything Cold complains of would just as well have applied to the driver who struck his daughter .

    i.e. — Campus security doesn’t work for the accused. that he / she is an American and has rights means NOTHING outside of a 6th grade civics class.

    i.e. — The authorities ( in this case campus security ) word counts for EVERYTHING , ( yes, even when you can prove they lied. )
    Your word counts for NOTHING. ( Yes, even when you can prove that the truth and facts are on your side. )

    i.e . —- Witnesses ; Are like cops ; never around when you need them.

    i.e. — Forensics, evidence, and all that jazz ? Detectives and forensics labs work for the authorities , ( in this case campus security ) not for the accused, not for the victim.
    By the way, courtroom rules of evidence , the rules that determine what evidence you CAN present in court, FAVOR the authorities , beginning with that business about their word being worth more than yours under virtually all circumstances . ( Unless you can afford Johnny Cohrane, AND Robert Shapiro, AND F. Lee Bailey. 🙂 )


    My best guess is that if Cold went to jail, it probably had something to do with the fact that the authorities can threaten you, touch you, provoke you in every imaginable way, even beat you within an inch of your life, and 90% of the time that is perfectly ok.
    ( Rodney King is not the norm kiddies. )

    But Cold need only utter a single “threat ” ( I don’t even know Cold, and I know that would be shear hot air, and doubtless 300 other bystanders would know it wasn’t remotely serious ) and he has just “earned ” a felony record , and that is not perfectly ok.

    If that is what happened, I can’t say I feel sorry for him, but rather glad for him.
    One of the best character-builders I know of, one of the best ways I know of to sharpen the intellect,

    is to get curb – stomped by “the good guys ” , by the side you thought you were on, by the side that you thought cared about that.

    “Health care itself is both an intellectual and emotional issue. How do we, the public, fit in? “–Tuscon

    It’s also an extremely frustrating bureaucratic morass. I was talking to a younger person who did not have health insurance the entire 12 months of the year and they now have to fill out a “Shared Responsibility” IRS form which is apparently Byzantine in complexity…all to determine how much of a penalty to pay for the months not insured.

    It sucks–big time. And for what? 500 hundred bucks a month for a high deductible plan…poor fucker, pay 10 or 12 thousand before any insurance starts kicking in.

    Russia doesn’t want to rule the world; but rather wants to steal as much of it as it can. Russia’s economy is only a puny 15th in the world based on GNP [ that’s right 15th]. They barely qualify for the G20! LilliPutin and his gangsters are really racketeering goons in a criminal economy. They are killers as the interviewer interviewing Trump, the interviewee, stated recently. Trump in the greatest comeback ever said: ‘that’s ok we are killers too’. LilliPutin actually came to power because of a false flag apartment building bombing which killed 400 people. The Russians emulate the snake oil salesmen of that illustrious Yankee institution; Goldman Sachs. By the way LilliPutins personal theft so far while looting the 15th world economy and former Soviet countries is about 50 billion bucks. Thats an awful lot of rubles.

      Putin and his gangsters? Wow, is THAT ever the pot calling the kettle black. You’d be wise to stop thinking so small about imagined “personal thefts” by foreign leaders, especially the one’s that have the temerity to stand up to the US-based, western globalist network, and start focusing on POWER and the ability to exercise it. The western globalists measure “wealth” much less in terms of dollar denominated personal assets these days (although, to be sure, they have plenty of THAT too), and MUCH more in political influence, which at the highest levels has the power to make or break global markets, and thus bankrupt entire countries and even regions at their whim.

      If you fashion yourself as some sort of “American Patriot,” as your post suggests that you do, you should stand up and SALUTE Vladamir Putin for having the big brass balls to stand up to US/Western imposed global hegemony; for in truth, you have FAR more in common with the average Russian that HE represents than you do with ANY American who counts themselves as part of the top 1%.

    “Then, on Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee chair Devin Nunes (R-Cal) told the news media that an “unnamed source” in the Intel community informed him that Trump had indeed been surveilled during the transition period following the election. Was he just blowing smoke up America’s ass? I guess we’ll have to stand by on that one.” –JHK

    Nunes has now changed his story completely, so we don’t have to stand by anymore… we know he was just blowing smoke up America’s ass.

    Nunes is in way over his head and is obviously incompetent. Now Nunes is canceling hearings at the request of the White House. The White House was the source of leaks to Nunes (“on his midnight run”)… and Nunes may have violated the Espionage Act (which could get him ten years in prison).

    There is now direct evidence of the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russia, in addition to strong circumstantial evidence. The White House initially allowed the hearing without realizing how devastating it would be to 45… which is why Nunes is now canceling hearings.

    False. Nothing changes because of Trump’s move. Congress had not yet approved the TPP — its fate was bleak on Capitol Hill no matter what the White House did — and the deal had not yet taken effect.

    So Trump’s words and action were meaningless, just as Hillary’s words against TPP were meaningless. And Bernie’s. Fluff. Weak Trump.

    Well, if we can put up with a full-on goose-stepping, heal-clicking Nazi, we can probably also put up with a Randroid fantasist.

    The problem with a Greater German Reich stretching from the channel coast to the Urals, was that it was going to produce the same sort of Austro-Hungarian polyglot that Hitler presumably despised.

    This is not a hypothetical , this was already happening in fact when Germany was winning the War, 1940 – 1943.

    The Spanish Blue Division, the Bosnian Moslem 13th SS , ROA, the Cossack Legion, Leon Degrelle and the Belgian Rexists, and on, and on.

    80 to 90% of the personnel in the concentration camps and Action Reinhard camps were non-German.

    These were not aberrations , they were a clear trend.

    They were going to have to create so many “Honorary Aryans ” such as to render the term Aryan , or even the term German, meaningless .

    Or they were going to have to kill Germans and whites ( “whites” — think Honorary Aryan. No genuine National Socialist took white seriously ) in such staggering numbers that the extermination of Jews, Gypsies, and a few leftists would have amounted to only the most insignificant and trivial of demographic blips.

    Now any who were genuine National Socialists figured all of this out a long time ago.

    This is the problem with National Socialism, and not any derogatory epithets , the fortunes of war, or any votes in any popularity contests.

    And this is why I say there are no genuine National Socialists in this blog , and for that matter you would be hard pressed to find any genuine National Socialists who aren’t either —

    — certifiably senile , into a second childhood, and under the misapprehension that the year is 1936,

    — or retired voluntarily.

    But Nazi stuff is about as explicable as USA fans trying to reconcile a large state with a republic when clearly the two don’t mix.

But yes, many men responded to the call of National Socialism – not just Nordic Whites. Maybe Hitler was more broad minded than you have been lead to believe. Just because people aren’t German doesn’t make them bad, Kesa.

            What I think you are trying to do with this constant projection is one of two things; or maybe both?


            You need justification to attack me, so you tell other white people Im trying to breed the white race out of existence.


            You want to and wish you could breed black people out of existence; so you project that desire onto me.

            Janos, why do you assume I look at every sexual act as part of some grand strategy for world domination? Once again methinks you are projecting your own alien passions and desires on to me?

            Don’t you ever just make love of the sake of making love?

            Ive noticed this phenomenon with a lot of so called white nationalists. You guys get so wound up plotting, overthinking and projecting your geo politics, ego, fears… into every potential sexual act that you become paralyzed and never get on with it?

            What woman wants to deal with all your racial baggage?

            Its not sexy or attractive and it will just make you more insecure.

            And let me leave you with a pro tip:

            ALL women desire to be lusted after, and some love to be “defiled” (whatever that is?)

            A woman’s first agency is her sexuality; don’t try to take it from her.

            You give any 17 year old girl a choice between getting a perfect score on the SAT; and the magical ability to change any combination of things about her body/appearance…?

            She will choose her appearance everytime; without hesitation.

            Thats nature.

            You do appreciate nature don’t you?

She was still a small time bit player at the time (and in truth, still is, serving primarily as a red cape to wave in the face of the rabid feminists). 9-11 (and OKC before it) was mostly a Bush/Cheney and their extended PNAC network job, with assistance from the Zionist Izzies, the Brits, and the Saudis of course. Bin Laden was indeed a synthetic boogeyman, as were/are Al Qaeda and ISIS. Bill and Hill both have their strong points as self-serving duplicitous political operatives, but being smart or well connected enough to pull off an operation involving the scope of OKC or 9-11 is certainly not one of them.

    What is a real value of ruble to a dollar?

    The rate of the dollar to the ruble on the exchange recently is about 1 to 60. In some areas, for example, in the service sector, maybe it is. That is, in order to receive in Moscow’s hotel services as much as in an American hotel you can get for $1, in Russia you have to spend 60 rubles.

    But in the field of defense, the ratio of currencies is quite different. To produce military equipment as much as America can produce for $1, Russia needs to spend not 60 rubles, but much less. How much?

    This can be estimated if we compare the price of American weapons on the international arms market and the cost of similar weapons systems for Russian Armed Forces. Simply put, compare: how much Americans ask for their tank or airplane when they sell it to their allies, and what does a tank or airplane of the same class produced in Russia, cost Russian Ministry of Defense.

    And then amazing things will come up. It turns out that the dollar to the ruble in the military area is not 1 to 60, but a maximum of 1 to 10! And if you think it’s fair, when you recount at purchasing power parity, Russia’s military budget will not be at all 50, but at least as much as 300 billion dollars! Here’s to you a clue how such poor Russia, keeps strategic parity with the rich West.

    Furthermore. If in general Russian real military budget is half of the American, then the specific military expenditures are even higher than in America. After all, the number of servicemen is 2.2 times less than that of the Pentagon. And this means that as a result, Russia spends even more money on equipment, training and maintenance of one soldier than the United States!

    Here is one more reason for Russia’s success. Victories in Syria, breakthrough in the rearmament of the Army and Navy, leadership in creating a new generation of weapons, a massive renewal of military infrastructure and other “unexplained” phenomena in the field of the global military-strategic balance of power over the past 10 years.

    • FincaInTheMountains March 25, 2017 at 9:56 am #

      That pretty much means that the racket in Military spending cost US approximately $5 dollars out of each $6 dollars spent from the budget.

      Approximately the same ratio is in the Medical “industry”, or may be even higher.

      And in Medical “Industry” to evaluate the racket proportion, one must probably study the prices charged by Mexican clinics for similar procedures using similar class medical equipment that charges clinics north of the border.

      US is a country of many rackets which have ran out of any reasonable boundaries.

      • DA March 25, 2017 at 12:15 pm #

        The real question is, what happens after even the rackets have run out of suckers to bleed dry? We’re rapidly approaching that point now. Even the mighty US military can’t run on fumes, and with the 1% unwilling to pay taxes and the 99% increasingly unable to, what happens then? The US is increasingly a paper tiger, totally reliant on the antiquated notion of the US Dollar as the world’s reserve currency. Those days are numbered, as are the days of the US as global hegemon. The long-awaited Global NWO is obviously the goal, although it remains to be seen how that goal will play out in the near term. A default and subsequent run on the dollar would go a long way in suppressing the gag reflex as that bitter pill went down.

    “…So, the long and the short of it is that the RussiaGate story is spinning out of control, and Trump’s adversaries — who go well beyond Congress into the Deep State — might be getting enough leverage to dump Trump. Either they will maneuver him and his people into some kind of perjury rap, or they will tie up the government in such a web of investigative procedural rigmarole that all the country lawyers who ever snapped their galluses will never be able to unravel it.” — JHK

    While I remain unsurprised at the shenanigans of Deep State and New World Order assholes (and their clearly addled supporters and worker bees), one thing does surprise me. This would be the ripping away of veils and verbal filters that used to *hint* at nefarious policies and newspeak half-truths. Now it’s shockingly out in the open.

    As seen in the insane mouthings of Johnny “Jingo” McCain in Brussels, they either don’t believe there will be any consequences, or it may be that they feel their backers are all-powerful and unassailable, and will find them to be indispensable megaphones. (BTW, what in the blue hell is wrong with Arizonans continually placing this deranged cheese-brain in a position of dangerous control — now head of the Armed Services Commitee — election after election? Do they really believe a world-wide war will be good for Arizona? WTF?)

    What I *like* about the current crop of shitheads openly shouting lies and distractionary crapola, is that now they have [somewhat] exposed themselves. I urge them to keep this up, and “go deep”.

        O3, it’s hard for me to imagine the near future. There’re so many fuckups possible, why bother to try to figure out which ones will occur? It’s like being given a choice of which way you want to die, by hanging or by firing squad? Either way it will hurt and you will be dead.

        What I have trouble with, is why am I still feeling positive that things will work out? I can come up with an exhaustive list of reasonably probable terrible events, but almost no good ones – at least for the near and intermediate future. Could I have reached my current old age being so unrealistic? I don’t want to be negative, no matter what – it just doesn’t pay. I’m emotionally ready to accept whatever happens – I think – but I’ll be danged if I run around being depressed. As Sha Na Na said, live for today…

          Perchance, do you assume that I’m running around being depressed? If so, disabuse yourself of that notion. I find all this legerdemain and bullshittery (tm helen highwater) to be endlessly fantastical and fascinating (in the context of being almost continually entertained by the length that the “persuaders” will go to in order to steer/misdirect public perceptions).

          As far as ruminating on being “unrealistic”, please consider a goodly amount of luck being a factor in your fortunes. You happened to be born in the USofA during a time when the US was “top of the world, Ma” and was embarking on an adventure of prosperity, luxury and a waste of resources never before imagined in the most fevered dreams of all of history’s elite and powerful.
          …There’s that. I certainly don’t blame you for feeling optimistic with that as background! 😉

    The day after repeal and replace……

    Another Kabuki Theater episode for the amusement of the masses. (Healthcare after the fall)

    Every empire has it’s bread and circuses. For this dying empire there is the government and it’s crazy political kabuki theater that has emerged as our greatest “Reality TV” show ever……headed by none other than the ringmaster of reality TV
    …..our overlords have a bizarre sense of humor….if it wasn’t life and death issues I would be slapping my knee, but alas…

    So take the Healthcare bill, please…….

    The Republican Party has become the puppet of the billionaire club and the Libertarian Party, created by the John Birch Society, Koch Brothers. I repeat that even William F. Buckley the conservative intellectual referred to them as “Anarcho Totalitarian”. So there you go. The Repub party has a mission coming from the Kochs and other billionaires like Peter G. Peterson, Paul Singer vulture capitalist and Robert Mercer.
    The aim is to create a new govt. which only serves the interests of finance and military in its war against civilization. They should abandon by law the idea of serving the people, since they aren’t worth anything. Only the rich are worth something, the rest of us are expendable indeed.

    What people have to grasp is that the idea of competitive healthcare companies is short lived, because they all want to make money on Wall St. so they consolidate. This has been going on since Reagan, when they decided to ignore the Sherman Anti-trust Law in favor of globalism.

    So if you have a party that is anathema to govern, What kind of healthcare bill could they possibly cook up behind locked doors by a small group of people who are trying to turn the ACA into a giant tax break for the corporations? One can only imagine that Ryan kept other members of the Rep party out of the room because Peterson was on the conference call telling Ryan what the bill should comprise.

    They cooked up something that even a MOFO (mother) couldn’t like, Bannon referred to it as a “piece of shit”.

    They had the audacity to try and get this in the works knowing it was a total loser…….

    WHY? (the question nobody’s asking)

      • Being There March 26, 2017 at 8:22 am #

        Yes. It might be a war between the Billionaire Club. The Kochs and those who believe the same destructive bunch want to end the govt for the people and recreate it through a constitutional convention to undermine the people and give the corporations and bankers direct connection with the govt which can only address their needs and military of course.
        The rest of us will have no say in how they undermine the environment, put us through economic repression or anything else that would allow us a voice or service by the govt.
        Perhaps Trump and Co. are trying to stop this, but my guess is more simple.
        Trump had to take on the Republican mantra against Obama in every way to get support from the party and its adherents.
        BUT he isn’t a Neoliberal, so he allowed them to craft a super stynkker that he would pretend to back…….it was crafted behind closed doors to even fellow Republicans, so I think it really was Kabuki theater that nobody would want.
        It directly attacked Trump’s voters by saying they were in the greatest risk pool, THUS they would have to pay thousands more.
        That would destroy Trump’s base and they would go nuts…..
        So it could be a combo, but it was more like, let’s make it look like we’re doing something when we really aren’t. The reality is that the ACA (Obamacare) was in fact a Heritage Foundation model and Mitt Romney instituted it in Mass.

    Kesa Anna, no doubt, if Hitler had been successful in holding territory, as you say, from the Urals to the English Channel, he would have run into really big problems with governance. As the Austro-Hungarian situation showed, polyglots don’t work well.

    Good point about the recruitment from different nationalities to the Nazi cause. So one way to rule is to co-opt enough of the locals. Empower locals to govern locals. But then how does THAT work in the long term? In the shorter term collaboration with a conquering regime carries a lot of risks for the collaborator.

    What about in the long term? Do you try to Germanize subservient peoples? Do you do what the Romans did and give everyone citizenship? Do you have different classes of citizenship?

    If you try the Germanization route, how do you subsume so many conquered nationalities, each with its own language and long history and culture. It’s not an easy thing to get people to give up their identity even in a voluntary association like the European Union. How do you do it without diluting the German ethnicity itself to the point of meaninglessness given that the ruling Germans would have been a minority within the larger Reich?

    Running a continent-sized, multi-ethnic empire is a practical matter. What would have been the everyday consequences for ordinary Germans? Would it have worked for or against them? How would these consequences have changed how they looked at ruling an Empire? Would it impose an onerous burden of national service? Would the glory of the Reich have imposed too heavy a tax burden?

    What about internal borders within the Reich? What about freedom of movement? As the Brexit vote showed and as the rise of nationalist parties all over Europe shows, borderlessness tramples on too many ordinary people and their economic interests. And it goes against the grain as a lot of people don’t want to give up their own national identity especially when it was dearly bought ie Serbs in opposition to ruling Turks, Poles in opposition to ruling Russians etc.

    Killing people in staggering numbers was in the German game plan. They were going to clear out large areas of eastern Europe for settlement by Germans. This meant killing tens of millions. European Jews would have been lost in the shuffle.

    National Socialism was something that grew out of conditions in the 19th and 20th Centuries. But that was then. Times have changed. Whatever brown-shirted goose-steppers come out of the wood-work will have ideologies and goals that come out of modern-day conditions. Whatever movement they represent will have its own character based in contemporary realities.

    “Pizzagate” DC shooter pleads guilty, faces years in prison

    At sentencing hearing, judge asks defendant if he was the culprit: “Yes ma’am.”


    “A North Carolina man pleaded guilty Friday to weapons-related charges for a December episode in which he stormed a Washington, DC pizzeria and fired rounds from a Colt AR-15 assault-style rifle. The incident was a bid to ‘self-investigate’ an unfounded conspiracy theory concerning the restaurant’s basement being the secret headquarters of a nonexistent child sex-trafficking ring whose (again, nonexistent) members included Hillary Clinton and her inner circle.

    “No one was injured, but the episode sent Comet Ping Pong employees and patrons running for their lives when Edgar Maddison Welch, 28, walked in with the assault weapon and a .38-caliber Colt revolver. Later, Welch pointed the AR-15 at a restaurant worker before shooting a computer and a lock on a backroom door.

    “Welch pleaded guilty to two counts. One charge was the interstate transport of firearms. The other was a local count of assault with a dangerous weapon. Welch remains jailed, and he faces up to a seven-year prison term when sentenced later this year. He faced a substantially longer term had he been convicted at trial.

    “US District Judge Ketanji Jackson of the District of Columbia asked Welch during the sentencing hearing if he was the culprit who stormed the Comet Ping Pong on December 4.

    “‘Yes ma’am,’ Welch replied.”

    Did I mention that the allegations of a child sex-trafficking ring are utter nonsense — a conspiracy theory boiled up in a right-wing fever swamp completely divorced from reality? I wanted to make sure I mentioned that. What a dimwit.

          Try exhibiting more respect for facts, malthuss. The creepy/weirdo art belonged not to John Podesta, but his brother Tony and his now ex-wife Heather. Not that you’d necessarily know, if videos by YouTube randos are what you rely on. I checked out another YouTube rando video on the same topic:


          The YouTube rando in question spends the first couple of minutes remarking about Tony Podesta’s, and presumably his ex-wife’s, taste in art. At 2 minutes 23 seconds in, the YouTube rando asks this over a photo of John Podesta: “I wonder if John Podesta is a connoisseur of the same kind of artwork (are they eating him in the background?)”, the latter remark referring to an artwork in the background of the photo.

          At 2:55 in, she refers to “the same kind of artwork that John Podesta had in the background of that photo”, a sentence cunningly constructed by the rando to insinuate that John Podesta ‘had’ (i.e. possessed) the artwork, as opposed to being photographed in the same room with it). One could call this ‘guilt by association’, except this YouTube rando doesn’t actually establish any guilt in the first place, by Tony Podesta or anyone else — only insinuation about the weirdo art.

          Keep listening and you’ll hear the YouTube rando make similar insinuations about James Alefantis, proprietor of Comet Ping Pong and the closest thing to an identifiable victim in the whole affair given that it was his place that got shot up. Alex Jones, King of the YouTube Randos, has just issued an apology to Alefantis, stating in part:

          “To my knowledge today, neither Mr. Alefantis nor his restaurant Comet Ping Pong, were involved in any human trafficking as was part of the theories about Pizzagate.”

          Now there’s some more careful sentence construction for you — sounds like Alex Jones’ lawyers have been earning their hourly rates. For now, innocent until proven guilty is still the rule in the USA, not guilt by association.

      • Elrond Hubbard March 25, 2017 at 11:05 pm #

        /me searches IMDb for ‘Edgar Maddison Welch’:


        Lessee: No pictures, no actual biographical information — no date or place of birth, etc. The full bio reads: “Edgar Maddison Welch is known for his work on Mute (2011), The Mill (2008) and A Tale About Bootlegging (2005).” Doesn’t tell you much. The name is pretty specific, though, so let’s surmise that it’s the same guy.

        According to the article I initially linked, E. M. Welch, Esq., gentleman vigilante, is 28 years of age — so he was born in 1989. That would make him 16 or so when he worked as a P.A. on A Tale About Bootlegging, 18 when he was P.A. and storyboard artist on The Mill, and 20 or so when he turned in his (no doubt indelible) performance as “Raver-slash-Victim” in The Bleeding, his sole listed acting credit. Finally, he write a short film called Mute when he was around 22.

        After that he drops out of sight. Nothing further is know of him till he turns up six years later in D.C., shooting up a family restaurant with a .38 and an AR-15. If he spent those years in a secret indoctrination camp where he was trained to destroy evidence with bullets, it’s not in his IMDb profile.

        In other words: are you f’ing kidding me? This guy has the world’s shittiest movie/TV/whatever career, and that somehow proves that Pizzagate is real? Lordie. There’s far more evidence that Robert Blake (a man with a real acting career) actually murdered his wife, and Blake still got acquitted.

  68. volodya March 25, 2017 at 1:25 pm #

    Ken, sanctioned by court order? Are you trying to make me laugh?

    This FBI “investigation” into possible Republican-Russian “collusion” is a farce. This is a transparent attempt to unseat, by whatever means necessary, even if they have to make shit up, an elected president.

    In the months leading up to the vote this – cough – investigation was an attempt to stop Trump from taking power. For Trump was seen as an illegitimate contender and is now seen as an illegitimate occupant of the White House, someone who lost the popular vote (the electoral college be damned), someone who for reasons of character and background is considered by people – who figure they’re the ones who have final say – as nowhere near qualified. And someone who took power by dishonest means and who appealed to the worst instincts in the worst and lowest of people, ie the self-interest of workers and especially those detestable lower class whites.

    For all these reasons and more Trump cannot rule, Trump must not rule. For a hundred reasons Trump is intolerable as president. Especially to the oligarch elite. Because even if Trump didn’t mean a word of it, he spoke out against the deleterious effects of globalization on ordinary Americans. This was not music to Oligarch ears seeing how much effort and money they spent offshoring factories to China.

    No, pointing out to tens of millions of Americans how badly they’d been screwed was not cricket. The people that foisted this new system on the world will tell you that if you’re not on board, then you’re behind the times, the glorious new era of progress. See, this new world is one of no boundaries, no nationality, no citizenship, no strictures on the moving of jobs to the lowest wage despotism, no laws, no rules, no fetters. And a system that just happens to massively benefit a handful of people.

    As far as foreign meddling goes, please, I’m in stitches, this is the stratosphere of hypocrisy, meddling has been the stock in trade of American foreign policy since the US was in short pants. No matter, doesn’t mean the Russians are allowed to meddle. But then what about Israel?

    And what about the Chinese? Do you think that have no interests in the US? Do you think those self-effacing, inscrutable orientals are just quietly standing by?

    No Ken, Russian meddling is as old as Russia. But what IS new is the shock to the system of someone like Trump actually winning. And what’s happening in reaction is a multi-pronged effort to unseat Trump, with the FBI as just one piece of the campaign. By hook or by crook they’ll get him out.

    And yeah, I remember Nixon well. And no, Trump is no Hitler, he doesn’t even come knee-high to Tricky Dick.

    • DA March 25, 2017 at 11:13 pm #

      Truth is, Hitler PERFECTLY represented the capitalist interests of his time, until he went completely off the tracks with his overt Jew elimination program(TM) at least. A step too far, for the times at least, especially when he was caught red-handed after the fact.

      Lesson learned. Future extermination of “targeted groups” would need to be a little more… ahem… discrete.

      And no, Trump is certainly no Hitler, never mind a Nixon. By the way, Tropes are only useful if they’re meaningful. And rest assured, NEITHER of these are in the least.

    Legitimate or not, the fact is he is under FBI investigation and his agenda, his DOA budget, should be halted, as congress did handing him another failure yesterday, until we figure out what the hell kind of treason is going on… to paraphrase Trump before both his Muslim travel bans failed and he had to fire Manafort, Flynn, etc. his failures illustrate his weakness.

    It is now Trump’s war in Iraq and he is fucking that up as well. Iraqi military leaders have ordered a pause in their push to recapture west Mosul from Islamic State as international outrage mounted over a series of airstrikes that killed at least 150 people in one district of the embattled city alone.

    Rescuers continued to retrieve bodies from the rubble of the Mosul Jadida neighbourhood on Saturday, more than a week after the coalition attacks, which are believed to have led to one of the highest civilian tolls in the region since the US invasion of Iraq in 2003.

    “For all these reasons and more Trump cannot rule…” –volodya

    “Correct … and Trump demonstrates this daily through his failure to govern.”–“Janet” responding to a volodya quote deliberately stripped of its surrounding context.

    Anyway, Janet is really underestimating President Trump IMO and he/she is not the only one. And why do I say that? Because after the health care debacle Trump stated that he had ‘learned a lot from the experience’.

    Look, nobody is going to become POTUS and not have a few fuck ups, especially in the beginning.

    Trump has only been at the helm for a little over two months and all this talk of his demise is prematurely ridiculous–his term is just getting started, the first few steps out of the starting blocks with a lot of track left to run. I fully expect that as Trump gains more experience, his feet will become better positioned under his body and he will start to sprint more comfortably and effectively. And I would not at all be surprised to see President Trump crossing the tape with hands held high and raised in victory at the finish line.

    Trump is New York City pugnacious through and through and only a buffoon would underestimate his tenacity and fortitude.Moreover, I think Trump is a deeply misunderstood/misrepresented person and fundamentally decent–just my intuitive impression.

    And I type this as one who is opposed to much of what the GOP is selling. But I also know too many Trump supporters who are kick- ass awesome in their daily lives and I must give them their due/respect: Great productive workers and the kind of people one can leave their doors unlocked around without fear of valuables being stolen.

    3. Dale, Jr. wins the Indy 500.
    4. A Russian oligarch buys the Roman coliseum and moves it to Moscow when the Italian government begins to sell off assets to avoid default. The owner of the London Bridge (now located in Arizona) complains that the auction for the coliseum was rigged.
    5. The biggest scandal in the Catholic Church’s history ensues when it’s discovered that Pope Benedict was born to a Jewish couple who put him up for adoption, and thus gives new meaning to the question, “Is the Pope Catholic?”
    6. As the EU tanks, European money flees to American soveriegn bonds, which hit a low of -5%.
    7. Iran displays it’s 1st atomic bomb; the price of oil hits $220/barrel and the US prepares for a “raid” into Iran to destroy the WMD’s.
    8. A gigantic methane superbubble from underneath the melting Siberian permafrost pops into the atmosphere and causes a world-wide stink.
    9. In August, Nike introduces its new Pocket Rocket line of sneakers which contain a tiny cold fusion reactor that allows the wearer to jump 25? and run the entire length of a basketball court in 1 second. In December, 250 people die at the Mall of America during a riot at the Sports Authority store.
    10. Joe Biden is replaced at the democratic convention by ex-pope Benedict, and Obama wins in a landslide over the Romney/Osteen ticket.

If you’ve never been in a fight or refuse ever to be in one on principle, you are divided from your people and from valuable parts of yourself. And you will never understand history, present day politics, or what is possible in the future.

        Yes, like Long John Silver I can speak like a book when so minded. But why do that when one can speak simply? And when big words would only obfuscate the simple reality? America is sword land. We are being conquered. If we fight, we may still be able to save some of it. If we don’t, we won’t. And dude, it’s a very serious thing to lose this kind of war, a war is dispossession. Ask the Indians.

I’m a year shorter in the tooth than Jim but have a childhood memory of being on a trackless trolley and that smell from a transformer like I first smelled from a electric train around the Christmas tree. The street car above wires were left up after the rails were taken up or paved over and busses were electric powered but were limited by only being able to go only as far from the wire as the trolley poles would allow or they had poles the driver had to use to put the trolley poles wheel back on the wire. By the way the wheel was called a trolley which the name was applied to the car below for some reason.

        You’re neither priest nor holy man: I’ll save my confessions for the worthy. (Besides I have explained over and over again my reasons for supporting the Democratic Party Platform, specifically, the health care aspect.)

        There are enough sophists on this site, why not aim a little higher as in the philosophic?

        Trump is going to need all the help he can get and your demands for pre-election purity only repulses those willing to re-examine and possibly update prior belief systems in the aftermath of the election.

        Competition–as in elections etc–induces a certain sort of ideological rigidity, a perceptual myopia. But the election is over and there is only one president. IOW, enough of the infantile end zone spiking.

        And ironically, the vacillations that befuddle the timid such as yourself, are part and parcel of Trump himself: He once championed single payer, for instance. And of course, also praised Hillary.

        Times change and so do people. Well, at least high flying air signs such as Gemini. Others, such as the dull-as-dirt-earth signs keep digging and scratching the doo-doo, castigating the foliage for it’s blooming diversity.

            I suppose the difference between you and I is that I cherish the contradictions in your being while you seem intent on “exorcising” the “evil” within mine.

            At times, you have championed single payer and yet you lionize Limbaugh and Jones and denounce the political party that seeks its implementation. To me, that’s a contradiction; a fundamental logical incoherence. And yet, I try to understand “where you’re coming from” because as many have noted, you write beautifully and you’re obviously a very intelligent human being.

            Perhaps I’m missing something so I bend an ear when Janos speaks. And unlike the “Neo Marxist” silencers, who might throw you in a reeducation camp for thinking the wrong thoughts, I wouldn’t change a thing about Janos; least of all his gnarly bark and twisted, convoluted boughs and branches that bark, bark, bark, with a singular obsession. Because amidst your often ugly and hateful declarations resides a cluster of oak leaves and the occasional acorn to ponder.

            But I also suppose the difference between you and I is also the difference between the guilt inducing Catholic priest waving a cruel castigating finger and the wandering, nature loving Taoist pondering the magic of one season changing into another.

            Let go, Priest: we are what we are–at any given moment.

            Beautiful Buck. But one must try and understand oneself too, not just go with the flow. Buddha described his Way as against the flow. The two views or darshans can be reconciled: it takes much work to get the canoe in the water and paddle it out from the reeds and rocks to where there is real Flow and not just “flow”.

            Likewise Zen describes reality as the Uncarved Block. Masonry describes the carved or well chiseled stone. Easily reconciled: one must sharpen one’s faculties before the ultimate vision can be attained.

            Until you know why you were a Hillary Cultist, you are not safe from reverting to that. You are still in the reeds and you may not see the rock dead ahead.

    “We have got to have the guts to take on the insurance companies and the drug companies and move forward toward a Medicare-for-all, single-payer program,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said on MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes” on Friday night. “And I’ll be introducing legislation shortly to do that.”

    Even before the Republicans withdrew their Obamacare repeal bill, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee and a close Sanders ally, previewed this message at a rally in defense of Obamacare on Thursday.

    “Don’t just be satisfied with defeating Trumpcare ? set your sights on creating real Medicare for all!” he told a cheering crowd of hundreds of activists.

    Representatives of several major progressive organizations ? the Working Families Party, the Progressive Campaign Change Committee, Credo, Social Security Works and the National Nurses United ? all echoed this push in conversations with The Huffington Post on Friday and Saturday.

    “The problem is the insurance companies, Big Pharma ? they’re gonna come back and use the chaos to their advantage,” predicted Social Security Works executive director Alex Lawson. “If Democrats go with a half-a-loaf policy, Republicans are going to blame them for the failures of Big Pharma. They have to immediately pivot to expanding Medicare.”

    As I am certain you know the “greatest deal maker” on Earth went down the shitter along with the smartest Speaker of the House == Ken Hall

    Painful, but somewhat predictable defeat. I always maintained on that forum that Speaker Paul Ryan is a Clintonoid in Republican clothing.

    The alliance between Trump and Ryan was of tactical, not a strategic nature.

    The main action I expect will be the ongoing struggle for who’ll control American Federal law enforcement agencies and intelligence – around creating of an Independent Commission of the Congress to investigate the possible wiretapping of the presidential candidate.

    As soon as such Commission will be created we should see a lot of defections of lower-level Clintonoids operatives to the side of American people. There will be no lack of witnesses.

    For the last 4 years, Russia won the Cold War, but fell into such an intellectual squalor that is impossible to describe:

    The Soviet education system is destroyed almost entirely with the help of the Unified State Exam and the Bologna system

    High-ranking government positions requiring outstanding abilities are distributed between “their own” by the principle “the son of the general also wants to be a general”

    Academy of Sciences is destroyed

    The Church refused to be a peacemaker and participate in the reconciliation of the parties to the ongoing civil war by a method of comprehending the experience for which Church paid a terrible price in the 20th century.

    Meanwhile, in the past 10 years, amazing changes have occurred and if you go to the Russian Christian forums, you get the impression that at least half of the parishioners of the Moscow churches dream of coming to a nearby temple with AK47 and a have a go at it…

    And all because no one thinks that the new Russian military doctrine, also known as Medvedev’s Nuclear Ultimatum, the switch between Medvedev and Putin in 2012, the dispersal of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the transformation of the Olympics in Sochi into Mordor and Maidan are all a single historical process, when one event as a gear captures another, and they all crank the hour hand.

    But the million-people waiting line in Moscow to see the belt of the Holy Virgin, the annexation of the Crimea, the appearance of Strelkov’s troops in East-Ukraine’s Slavyansk and the defeat of Hillary Clinton in the United States is the breakdown of the clockwork and the manifestation of the free will of the people, as a result of which the wheel of History left the rutted track and began to lay a new one in the virgin soil.

    DA, sure, Hitler had German Oligarch support. But perfectly? I don’t know, I’ve heard the contrary version, of Brits and Germans conspiring in neutral countries to be rid of both Hitler and Churchill because the war was so bad for business (or maybe their own particular business) that peace RFN was a paramount necessity.

    No matter, that’s a quibble. The fact is that Hitler had massive German support for his agenda not least because he embodied German values of the time, yeah, including anti-semitism. And look at his background, a decorated war veteran, an otherwise ordinary man who dared to shake the world. Whatever else you may think of him – and he was a black-guard – he did have balls like churchbells. Conservative Prussians and Hitler’s own military may have disdained the corporal, but ordinary Germans didn’t. And, I have to believe, neither did a lot of German capitalists.

    You’re right, tropes are useful only if they’re meaningful. Trump the fascist? Trump the Nazi? Bullshit. It’s like this, as soon as ordinary people wake up to their personal and collective self interest there’s accusations of fascism. Give a working stiff a living wage? Nope, no can do.

    Buck, on the campaign trail Trump was selling one thing, that he would look out for the ordinary American who’d been thoroughly taken to the cleaners this last three decades.

    But the GOP was selling something else, an austere, meager existence, one that comes as a consequence and natural outgrowth of Principled Conservatism, the idea being that there’s no higher ideal than walking the Principled Conservatism walk, especially if it’s painful.

    Now, you would say that the GOP was touting a contemptible line of shit, that it was a low-down con, that this austerity was meant solely for working-class voters if they were bone-headed enough to buy into it. Prosperity for degreed professionals and the Oligarchs and their administrative clerisy and for Washington insiders had to be built on SOMEBODY’S backs after all. A good Principled Conservative will tell you, right off the bat, that there’s no such thing as a free lunch. The question is, who’s picking up the tab?

    But, as the Trump phenomenon showed, a significant portion of Republican voters weren’t drinking the Principled Conservatism Kool-Aid.

    The question is this, now that Trump raised expectations, that he would end decades of economic exploitation that’s been a calamity for so many Americans, what happens when he’s stymied? What happens if it becomes apparent from his words and deeds that he has no intention of following through, that in fact, he’s all for helping the same old Oligarch class and its Wall Street Kleptocracy?

    There’s a lot of loose talk about American fascism since Trump got the nomination. But this talk is all bunk. Trump is no fascist and there will be no fascism even after Trump. But there will certainly be SOMETHING and someone after Trump, especially as a reaction if Trump doesn’t come through.

    The ideology hasn’t yet taken shape and maybe it won’t be a coherent and internally logical set of ideas. Surely, it won’t be fascism as fascism had its day and times have changed. But, having said that, based on what we’ve seen in the last couple of centuries, better hope that Trump does come through.

      Police cooperate with Trump Marchers to humiliate Anti-Fa scum in Philly. Trump supporters had a permit and demanded that the City enforce their right to march. Finally the Black Chief came out and order the scum moved back. Same thing at the end of march: the Police told the Trump marchers to disperse because it was over and things were getting too dangerous. But the March was full of Alt-Right Republicans, wise in the ways of the Enemy. They knew that they would be stomped by the Communists one by one if they break up. So they kept in formation. So against the cool Ace of Spades came out, this time apologizing for the vicious ignorance of his officers. The Trumpsters were given the green light and they marched proudly back by the way they came.

      Police and True Republicans working together: it’s coming Volly. In Germany, both press and radio were denied to National Socialists, so they took to the streets with their message. Over the next 13 years, 300 of their men were killed and 25,000 wounded. But they triumphed in the end.

      I think Trump wants to “follow through” as you say but he has to negotiate the competing factions within his own party to do so. Ironically, the Democratic Party might save some of Trump’s very well intentioned plans such as his infrastructure agenda.

    Janos, they didn’t triumph. They lost. 14 million war casualties, Germany in ruin, occupied by Soviets and Americans for decades, a polity so afraid of its own shadow that it thinks that national borders are a mark of moral deficiency. Merkel thought she was making a counter-statement to the Nazis as if three generations later the people alive now were to blame for Hitler. Nonsensical twisted para-logic that coheres only in the minds of intellectuals and leftists. National Socialism did that.

    • Janos Skorenzy March 26, 2017 at 6:29 pm #

      They triumphed until the nascent New World Order crushed them. Communists and Capitalists allied against Nationalism – as they will again. Nothing has changed. The economic miracle of Nazi Germany is one of the big secrets and what they don’t want you to know. But you focus on the defeat – as if that proves they were wrong. Classic Candide like triumphalism. Everything works out for the best in the best of all possible worlds.

    More White Europeans were enslaved and sent to North Africa than Blacks enslaved and sent to North America. Why have we never heard about this?

    From a number of sources, therefore, Prof. Davis estimates that the death rate was about 20 percent per year. Slaves had no access to women, so replacement was exclusively through capture. His conclusion: “[B]etween 1530 and 1780 there were almost certainly a million and quite possibly as many as a million and a quarter white, European Christians enslaved by the Muslims of the Barbary Coast.” This considerably exceeds the figure of 800,000 Africans generally accepted as having been transported to the North American colonies and, later, to the United States.

    The European powers were unable to stop this traffic. Prof. Davis reports that in the late 1700s, they had a better record of controlling the trade, but there was an upturn of white slavery during the chaos of the Napoleonic wars.

    American shipping was not exempt from predation either. Only in 1815, after two wars against them, were American sailors free of the Barbary pirates. These wars were significant operations for the young republic; one campaign is remembered in the words “to the shores of Tripoli” in the Marine hymn. When the French took over Algiers in 1830, there were still 120 whites slaves in the bagno.

    Why is there so little interest in Mediterranean slavery while scholarship and reflection on black slavery never ends? As Prof. Davis explains, white slaves with non-white masters simply do no fit “the master narrative of European imperialism.” The victimization schemes so dear to academics require white wickedness, not white suffering.

    Prof. Davis also points out that the widespread European experience of slavery gives the lie to another favorite leftist hobby horse: that the enslavement of blacks was a crucial step in establishing European notions of race and racial hierarchy. Not so; for centuries, Europeans lived in fear of the lash themselves, and a great many watched redemption parades of freed slaves, all of whom were white. Slavery was a fate more easily imagined for themselves than for distant Africans.

    With enough effort, it is possible to imagine Europeans as preoccupied with slavery as blacks. If Europeans nursed grievances about galley slaves the way blacks do about field hands, European politics would certainly be different. There would be no groveling apologies for the Crusades, little Muslim immigration to Europe, minarets would not be going up all over Europe, and Turkey would not be dreaming of joining the European Union. The past cannot be undone, and brooding can be taken to excess, but those who forget also pay a high price

      Studying up about pirates right now, and the great age of piracy (1650-1725) There is quite a lot about the African slave trade in these books.

      The biggest slavers apparently were the Portugese. who out of the European powers had the largest presence in Africa. Of about 12 million Africans brought into the Americas (1620-1830), about 355,000 came into what is now the USA, the vast majority going to the Caribbean and Brazil. The US Navy performed anti slaver patrols off the coast of Africa beginning about 1825.

      The real slavers were Muslims from the Arabian peninsula, who operated out of Zanzibar from the 14th century all the way until 1890. when the British were able to put a top to it. The number of black Africans kidnapped by Arab slavers is thought to be about 25 million.

      One question I had has been answered. Reading up about New England silversmiths and the Boston mint in the 17th century, I wondered “where did these colonist get all this silver?” The answer is governors and mayors of Boston, NY, Philly etc. would commission local Captains to go on pirate cruises in the Caribbean and especially the Indian Ocean and the Red Sea. Huge hauls of precious metals were captured and brought back to Atlantic coast cities, where colonial govts would get a healthy cut. they even established a pirate supply base in Madagascar, run by a guy from New Haven, where pirates from New England and NY could rest up and resupply their ships.


      • BackRowHeckler March 26, 2017 at 8:03 pm #

        Why am I reading up about pirates?

        Because outside my window I see bare trees, dirty snow, frozen mud, a leaden sky, and cold hard rain.

        that’s why.


      • Janos Skorenzy March 26, 2017 at 10:22 pm #

        My article says 800,000 Blacks coming to the Americas – quite a discrepancy.

        Some say the Yankee Pirates were themselves slavers – and kept going after the Civil War. And they were funded by the Yankee Establishment – thus making it utterly hypocritical. Have you ever heard anything like that?

        • BackRowHeckler March 26, 2017 at 10:38 pm #

          Ya, there were Yankee slavers, mostly out of Newport. Sometimes Governor Cranston sponsored pirates, sometimes he hung them. African slaves were just so much cargo, like mercury being transported from Hungary to refine silver, or nails, or lumber, or salt. So if these Yankee pirates out of Boston or Newport like Ned Low or Captain Kidd captured a Portugese slave ship off the west coast of Africa, so much the better. They’d kill the Portugese crew and officers, commandeer the ship, sail it to Jamaica or Honduras or Brazil, and sell the load at a discount price. Then when they got back to Mass. or RI they’d give the Governor a cut of the swag. Everybody was happy all around!

          That’s the way it worked in the Golden Age of Pirates.


          Incidentally, I got that 355,000 number from National Geographic.


          • Janos Skorenzy March 26, 2017 at 11:22 pm #

            No, Newport was Jewish slavers, though of course some Yankees might have been involved there. Still you refuse to fight your conditioning. You’d rather say the worst things about your own people rather than say the least bad thing about the Jews. Strange and Tragic.

    In DC, the Palestinian woman who helped organize the celebrated Womans March on Washington is being immediately deported because she is a convicted terrorist who has spent time in prison, which she failed to disclose.

    Have you seen anything about these stories in the MSM?

    Please say the most reliable place to read the story about the setup of 35 Russian diplomats, with families, for arrest on January 1. == aNanyMouse

    I did my best to find an English reference to the story.

    After 30 min I gave up, here is the direct reference to the interview of Maria Zakharova on Russian TV, in her own words – but in Russian:


    The thing is that not-specialist do not really understand the essence of the story Maria Zakharova is referring to the expulsion of 35 diplomats on New Year’s Eve and the fact that 35 diplomats and their families – 96 people all together – would have become illegal immigrants in the US on January 1 2017

    In episode right before that, she is telling the story how Russian diplomat was detained by American special services while trying to buy a heart medication in American pharmacy using a completely legal prescription for Evgeny Primakov – a prominent Russian politician.

    Medication was confiscated, money (several thousand dollars) not returned, Primakov died. John Kerry tried to intervene, to no avail.

    Comprehensive analytics in social networks should not be looked for.

    It is not there. To properly describe the phenomenon in all its planes, effort is required, which by definition can not be made by one person.

    Moreover, competence is required, which can not be met in one person. And the real analytical teams, firstly they work slowly, secondly they are not public, and thirdly – for money.

    If you really want to understand the issue, then the entire factology will have to be collected by yourself, and this factology itself will have to be added up and analyzed.

    If you do not adjust the facts to a predetermined conclusion, namely, to conduct honest analytical work, then this is a rather long process, involving a serious expenditure of time and effort.

    The funny part is that by the time some conclusions can be drawn, the situation has long “gone ahead” and a new data set will accumulate, which will require explanations and questions that will require an answer.
