You might ask yourself: Why is it “important” that we spend thirty, forty, fifty billion dollars pounding sand down the rat hole that is post-Maidan Ukraine, grift central for the sketchy nexus of US politicians and their sponsors in the warcraft industry? Answer: Aside from one final magnificent payday, they are producing a grand opera of distraction to direct the American public’s attention from the sinking of our own ship-of-state in the waters of Babylon.

That giant wad of money, you understand, goes mainly to the likes of Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, Raytheon, Textron, Boeing, et cetera, and a substantial portion re-circulates through the K-Street laundromat into the congressional campaign finance wishing well, while billions more get creamed off by Mr. Zelenskyy & Co. — providing self-reinforcing incentives to, how shall we say, blow more shit up on the global landscape.

It does not escape the attention, however, of some people on deck that the US ship is riding lower in the water each day, and listing at a distressing angle. Many other passengers have retreated to their staterooms, sick from the “vaccines” they were required to take to stay on-board for the voyage. Meanwhile water is streaming in below-decks, down in the stinking bilges, from many cracks in the hull. Nobody seems to know what to do, least of all the ship’s captain, who won’t come out of his quarters. (It’s whispered that he’s gone mad.) Is it time to lower the lifeboats?

In the hazy realm that is reality these days, those metaphorical cracks in our ship’s hull represent grave acts of negligence and even treasonous sabotage. Chatter over the Internet says our country, and other countries, are fixing to surrender their national sovereignty — that is, their ability to decide things for themselves — to the World Health Organization in anticipation of some as-yet-unnamed global emergency. Surrender, you say? By means of what? A vote in UN? A memo from the White House signed by the howling ghost known as “Joe Biden”? Surely not some procedure in Congresses and parliaments that would call for debate.

There is further suggestion that all this mischief is at the behest of larval would-be World Fuhrer Klaus Schwab. A more preposterous idea I have not heard in all my born days. And yet what else accounts in country after country for the bizarre super-coordination of insults to the world population such as mass lockdowns and mandated vaccination with genetic cocktails which, let’s face it, don’t look so goshdarn salubrious anymore. Rain-man and amateur immunologist Bill Gates is imputed somewhere in the mix. He’s been promising the world new-and-improved pandemic viruses. The last one was kind of a flop, like Windows 10X (code-name: Santorini). Uh, why is this man still at large?

And how, exactly, do the likes of WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WEF founder and chief Professor Klaus Schwab, and world-beating do-good wizard Bill Gates propose to enforce their plans to seize leadership of the whole wide world in their hypothesized next crisis-to-come? Again, chatter on the Web suggests that the United Nations, these days a convocation of failed states and diseased backwaters, somehow marshals the developed nations’ armies against their own citizens. Sorry, but I just don’t see it. Are there three less charismatic characters in all world history than that above-named trio of human worms? What are they going to do to make Bill Gates look like a Leader-of-Men? Dress him in the raiment of a Napoleonic hussar: gold-frogged tunic, epaulets, leopard-skin cape, knee-high boots, and plumed bear-skin shako? Nigga, please….

Meanwhile, hardships-upon-hardships pile up at bewildering volume and speed in this-here federal consortium of states. No baby formula for you, non-aborted birthing persons of America! (And yet, what bureaucrat in which Deep State burrow organized a baby formula airlift to the Mexican border for the relief of foreign interlopers of the birthing persuasion?) Diesel fuel at $6.49-a-gallon, meaning pretty soon nobody will get anything (including more diesel fuel)… gasoline at $6, plus zero inventory of new cars (R.I.P. suburbia)… no parts for anything with broken parts… big holes in those supermarket shelves… fertilizer at ruinous prices… no water out west… after-effects of “vaccines” killing folks (including from the disease they were “vaccinated” against)… hordes of foreign nationals strolling across the southern border (not a few of them males of military age with perhaps not very wholesome intentions)… financial markets trending down and real estate vortexing… and the FBI / DOJ combo looking to bash down your door and stuff you in a dungeon with neither formal charges nor bail, in violation of the constitution that they now programmatically oppose.

What will avail in the face of these treacheries and hardships? Oppose. Refuse. Resist. This is getting personal. How many of you not fully entranced by media psy-ops are willing to just say “no, and no more”?

    Happy Friday the 13th.

    Does anyone else know why we didn’t experience such drastic spikes on gasoline prices back during the first Iraq war, and the later Operation Iraqi Freedom?

    I mean, this should be a clear indicator that Biden and his minions are at the root of the great reset and the fact they are quickly trying to destroy any last semblance of our livlihoods.

    • DrTomSchmidt May 13, 2022 at 10:06 am #

      There was a real spike at the time of Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait. Poor stupid Saddam stopped at Kuwait when he could have seized eastern Saudi Arabia and DARED the world to dislodge him.

      Like many people, he believed the US government and it led to his eventual death. where is US Ambassador to Iraq,April Glaspie, these days?

      seems like it was just a full moon too.

      i was at the hospital this week, 5 hours in the ER, for good reasons, and this in a nice small out of the way town. what an amazing sh*tfestivus. the staff was hungry for a good word, practically broken by the bullsh*t and hostility of what i was told are the majority of people walking in the door.

      had a woman and her son on the other side of the divider in my room. he was being examined for assault by a school official. clearly a spectrum boy, but hell.

      the mom said he’s done with public school. my own experience is that public schools hate boys, and good on you. boy’s father was talking with him from jail…

            This will continue until some future generation decides to do away with entitled groups.

          My bf works in a major medical university library. They recently had a case of a large (6’2″, 240#) man caught exposing himself to the 100# Asian cleaning lady. She reported him to her supe, and the campus police came and gave him a 7 day stay away order. Oh, I bet he was shivering in his boots…

          A week later, one of the newly hired librarians just happens to mention that she ran into this guy in the “ladies” room, taking a dump. She said, (and I quote), “I didn’t want to say anything because I didn’t know what gender _THEY_ identified as.”

          BTW, “they” had a full beard and a bald head, just like many of us women do these days.

          • BackRowHeckler May 13, 2022 at 2:07 pm #

            Phew, that’s a charming little story. What is it about libraries that attracts these freaks and weirdos? The one dude I’ve seen around here dressed up like a woman was in the town library; dude was wearing a tight skirt and heavy makeup, talking loud into his cellphone as if to draw attention to himself, daring anybody anybody to challenge him.

          • cowbell81 May 13, 2022 at 2:22 pm #

            BRH – You should have asked to get a look up the skirt, if nothing more to see how far this freak was willing to go, and to confirm his gender assignment at birth.

          • ThorsHammer May 13, 2022 at 2:59 pm #

            She should have sent a request to the newest Supreme Court Justice and requested that she (It?) look into the problem and produce a ruling as to the gender of the pervert.

            At least we are reasonably certain of the sexual orientation of Joe Bedpan, our acting president, due to his well documented preference for the hair of little girls.

            Looks like concealed carry Glocks should be standard issue for all librarians.

        • Walter B May 14, 2022 at 8:34 am #

          Surely some of the public programmers (NOT teachers by any means) may very well despise the little ones, but the bulk of them are simply greedy and/or cowardly sellouts that would do anything to anybody for a paycheck and a pension. Take a gander at your local school budgets should you doubt this. Our last superintendent once told me that 85% of his budget was salaries and bennies for the staff (he was banging out $250K himself for overseeing two small schools with around 400 kiddies. Not that the little pricks are not a serious handful what with the constant bullying, substance abuse and pretty shitty drunk and doped up parents (no joke), but the numbers are clearly unsustainable and the product is clearly not education, but indoctrination. And if you speak out against any of it, Jerkoff Joe sends the Gestapo after you, you Domestic Terrorist!

          I know that I am old and probably too old to live, but I did attend public school from 5th through 8th grades and I had some of the most caring, intelligent and dedicated teachers that anyone could ever want to be educated by. Guess that breed died off somewhere back on the trail. Sellouts, they are everywhere, and in the end when all has been sold out the crash and burn is going to be earth shattering, literally. Coming to a neighborhood near you soon.

          • Anthea May 14, 2022 at 10:31 am #

            @ Walter B:

            The public school system is basically just a jobs program. In rural areas, it’s main purpose is to provide a fairly high-paying job with great benefits (by rural standards), mostly to the politically connected and their relatives–that is, the members of the little entrenched rural aristocracy. Quite commonly, these “old families” are a bunch of morons, and the ones who are selected for school-district jobs/sinecures are not exactly the pick of the litter.

            When my kids went to school there (roughly 2001-2010) it wasn’t too terribly bad. They had some good teachers–though not many (mostly the AP teachers). When one of my daughters was taking physics, she asked me a question about it. I said, “Okay. Where’s your physics book?” I had aced high school physics…ahem…some years ago, so I thought I could figure it out. She replied, “We don’t have one.”

            They had a first-year teacher who was teaching physics without a textbook–inventing the class out of whole cloth by printing out worksheets.

            None of my daughters had a single grammar class–ever. And the literature books sucked, as high school literature books always have.

            All in all, the girls did at least graduate decently prepared for college–one with a degree in the sciences–so I can’t complain too much.

          • Walter B May 14, 2022 at 12:24 pm #

            Glad to see I am not the only one who sees this Anthea, thank you. Politically connected and relatives? Damn straight! In my township the ruling bully committeeman that had the clout to be appointed mayor seven years in a row, has his wife and all of their buddies planted in the school system as teachers aids, office staff and PTA volunteers that spend most of their day at school dominate all of the other parents and their children even bully the children of their political rivals.

            I know first-hand because I was able to oust the 450 pound behemoth and take over as mayor during the last two years until they slander the heck out of me on Farcebook and were able to retire me from politics. Unfortunately their children are still bullying my daughter and no one will even address the problem. Strange thing is that pretty much all of these men and women bullies are literally 300 to 500 pounds and they know how to throw their mass around and it works.

            What is transpiring at the national level is being copied throughout the small, local levels, at least as far as I can see. Clearly God has infinite patience and we humans certainly should be grateful for that.

        Biden is an expendible nonentity stuck in the White House to provide a focus for our hatred. The old fool fell on the stairs of Airforce one again. He’s reminising about lunching with segregationists on the podium because they can no longer keep him on task. There are other rumors circulating on the internet, as well. One swears the executive branch is recruiting its own army. I can see that, if they find the US military the wrong tool for the task at hand.

        • megabeth May 13, 2022 at 8:40 pm #

          The old fool just stumbled and righted himself almost instantly. He’s on a different wavelength and moves, sometimes, like a three-toed sloth, but as a nurse who frequently works with the geriatric population, I’m not quite yet at Defcon 1 about his fall risk. Not without seeing his medication orders, that is.

          As if they would share his chart with us . . .

          I am far more concerned with his lifelong venality.

          • Walter B May 14, 2022 at 2:11 pm #

            And I am far more concerned with how so many Americans accept bribery and corruption as a legitimate way of doing business. Of course, the fact that no one in government will lift a finger to do anything about the Biden Crime Family is all the evidence needed to prove that they are ALL corrupt and working for “tips” too.

    • bluedog May 13, 2022 at 10:27 am #

      Hell this has been going on ever since Reagan brayed “come to Washington and let us show you how to move your business out of the country and increase your profit”, for you see we have already cut your taxes (twice) created offshore accounts for you free from the taxman, and the republicans cried Hosea utopia is here at last.

      Clinton told the business/banking sector, I can control the wages of labor which he did by NAFTA ( which was a plan hatched by the republican and democrats created by old man Bush and passed by Clinton) and while they were waiting for that to kick in why the flipping of companies was going on, and each time one was flipped they went to labor and said you have to give so much back in hourly wages and benefits. And then the killer of them all we are no long going to fund your pension in fact we are going to steal it which they did, so you see this has been going on for years its just finally caught up with everyone.

    • Paul May 13, 2022 at 11:22 am #

      I suspect the answer is: “There was more oil available then.” I remember the chatter from the two 1970’s oil crises: “There is no ‘oil-shortage’: there’s plenty of gasoline! It’s just an ‘oil-distribution’ problem!”

      Once OPEC opened up their taps again, each ‘crisis’ ended, and deep into the collective American subconscious was laid the cornerstone of what would becoming an enduring, but ultimately untrue Truth: “There is no ‘oil-shortage'”. “It’s only an oil-distribution problem!”

      Now, there actually is less oil to go-around no matter how thinly it might be distributed. The mantra of “There is no oil-shortage” needs to be replaced with a new one, something like: “Needs before wants; wants after needs”, but that would require a measure of mature, adult self-reflection that doesn’t currently seem to exist.

      Adulthood is imperfect country, an uncertain terrain best explored with other serious, prudent, and careful adults and certainly not alone. We should try it.

      I long for not “Springtime”, but “Monday morning in America.” It can’t come soon enough for me.

        The plan was to move into those countries when the shortages hit and use it then. But the damn people in those countries resisted.

        If any reasonable person had any doubts about the utter lack of honesty and sincerity of the tyrants who rule us, it would be resolved by considering the statement above. They could conduct their bloviating over Zoom rather than meeting at expensive resorts to which they flew in their private jets, and paying themselves ridiculous amounts of money to lecture one another about what the serfs should give up next.

        Too bad the Pandemic of Fear was largely a failure. Granted, 30% of the population were forever stripped of their capacity for rational thought, but if only the Gates Foundation and their CCP partners had been able to fully develop the Virus before it being released into the population as a slightly more effective relative of the flu—.

        The original American intention was to develop a virus that would selectively target the predominance of the ACE2 receptors in the Chinese genome which the Americans mistakenly thought would put them in the lead for Full Spectrum Dominance.

        The motivation of the CCP/Gates alliance was very similar— provide the opening wedge for the Universal Social Credit system via biological implants. And ease the pressure and transition from the petroleum economy.

        Every good conspiracy theory contains a kernel of truth—-.

            By the way, my 6-foot son once rounded a corner in his high school and ran smack into the sepulchral figure of Tony Evers, then chief of the Department of Public Instruction, almost bowling him over. Evers is the guy who stole the 2018 election late at night in a few big city precincts, and who later tried his best to be a good lockdowner governor.

    Greetings,

    I’m already adrift in my lifeboat but not everyone can see it just yet.

    For the first time in two years, I was able to meet with my sisters. Both are in the professional class. We were sitting around talking and I made reference to how the Easter Bunny was in control of the free world and they looked at me as they often do like I was the craziest person on Earth.

    I said that I was not crazy and that I could prove the Easter Bunny was in charge of the White House and the Free World and then I showed them the video of our new disinformation czar dressed as the Easter Bunny hustling the president away and not allowing him to answer questions.

    I followed that video up with the one of Biden shaking hands with a ghost followed by his most famous story of all – Corn Pop.

    I asked my sisters how it was possible that such things could be happening and that they, highly educated women, could be entirely unaware. “What else are you unaware of?” I asked.

    • Beryl of Oyl May 13, 2022 at 10:13 am #

      I am really surprised at the otherwise normal, intelligent Americans who are aware of events, but have no idea what is causing them.

      I think it’s because many people still assume that if they watch the six o’clock news or read the paper now and then, they are keeping up with current events.

        Their very strong preference is to remain ignorant, for “ignorance is bliss,” as they say. So, they become angry, enraged even, if you disturb their bliss with salient info/knowledge/facts and so on.

        • beantownbill. May 13, 2022 at 11:57 am #

          As I’ve said before, the complete saying is “If ignorance is bliss, ‘tis folly to be wise.” A different meaning from ignorance is bliss. But the unthinking masses have glommed on to the latter.

        • Rowdypiglet May 13, 2022 at 1:04 pm #

          JTinMD, I’m sure I’m not the only person here who has been subjected to the rage of the purposefully ignorant. When you present them with an undeniable fact, they attack without mercy. When this happens within the family, from people you thought you had good reason to trust throughout your entire life, it’s shocking and dismaying beyond words. The real and personal hatred, the viciousness, is beyond appalling, and you realize the solid ground you thought you stood on was always quicksand. When someone you’ve always loved looks at you with intense malice that clearly says “I wish you were dead,” it’s impossible not to realize that there is a spiritual dimension to what’s happening. Whether you believe in them or not, I can best describe it as demonic.

        They were gobsmacked.

        See, I’m the Blacksheep of the family as I’m in a rural area, putting in my garden, holding PM’s, and disinvested from the system as much as possible. After all, I didn’t mask up and I refused to inject myself with poison. . . . .unlike themselves.

        They are both 100% vested in the system and depend on it for their survival. That their 401k’s will soon be worthless because of hyperinflation is something they simply refuse to consider. That the vax (something they’ve both taken) is causing untold harm – including to themselves, is something they refuse to consider. Frankly, they refuse to consider a lot of things.

        No one wants to take the time to understand what is going on but it sure is hard to look at that 10 second video of Biden being hustled off by the Easter Bunny and not question everything.

          It’s nearly impossible to opt out, so the vast majority go along to get along. We CFNers are basically criminals now for even thinking about opting out of this murderous global regime. But the go-alongs, somewhere in their individual subconscious minds and Jungian shadow-selves, do indeed know the real deal. They’re simply too cowardly to face it.

            For many, reality is an existential threat.

            One example would be the gay/trans faction. To be fair, they have been treated pretty badly in the past, and some of them fear any re-assertion of social norms, or in some cases, sanity.

            For the coddled, in need of safe spaces, the demands of reality (that they provide for their own needs) seem like a death-sentence, since they sense that they can’t do this. They may be right. The same goes for those who exist on government bennies, among which I include government employees/retirees. Then you have your old folks and those who are disabled or in poor health.

            For a lot of people, facing reality would mean confronting death itself.

      That’s simply one of the biggest problems with the so-called professional class in that so-called institution of higher learning. First, you’re told that you’re something special (which you aren’t) then they tell you to throw away everything that life has taught you, so you have an empty head, and now you’re ripe for all the propaganda to take hold in a perfect breeding ground.

        School is just something to get through for most. The avowed goals of a Liberal Arts education were abandoned decades ago – and they were never a real possibility for most anyway. People want to get ahead and college is way of achieving that (they think). Thus once it was turned into a business, why not use it to indoctrinate the mandarin class, who will ride herd on their supposed inferiors, the masses?

        Or perhaps the idea of indoctrination came first, with profit for the colleges as a happy after thought.

        The first Lie of Liberalism is that most people are rational or noble beings. Once that falls, the mantle of nobility is put on Savages of other races – always a disaster. Or of the unwashed masses of the lower classes. Now, Marxism has abandoned that, and settled on the first option.

        • Beryl of Oyl May 13, 2022 at 11:40 am #

          That indoctrination is also easier for them to pass.

          The Haves of this country send their kids to school to keep them in their socioeconomic class. The Haves also pay for their stupid kids to go to school, and they can’t be shelling out six figures only to have their kids flunk.

          The kids of the Have Nots, are kids of what used to be the middle class, and they are the ones who are taking out the yuge loans (so do their parents), and most of them are perfectly capable of passing even the actual difficult courses, but they come out of school still unable to join that socioeconomic level they thought that diploma entitled them to, because for one, they start out owing a large sum of money, so they will never live where the Haves’ kids live, nor will they marry within that invisible class division.

          I’m not saying this is anyone’s fault, or that anyone should have to do anything about it.

          I’m just saying school isn’t the way up and out of the “inequality” that people were led to believe.

          Many years ago, an old friend of mine (now deceased) told me that when she was just out of college she accepted a job as the head librarian at a place called The School of International Law, in Corpus Christi, Texas. It wasn’t long before she was dismayed to realize that it was a front for international drug-dealing and money-laundering.

          So she went to the state attorney general (or maybe it was the local prosecuting attorney) and blew the whistle on them. He advised her to go to the school at night, leave her resignation on her desk, and take the next plane back to Wisonsin. So that’s what she did–accompanied by a colleague cradling a Swiss army knife the whole time.

          The school filed a counter-suit against her, claiming she was in on their shenanigans. She said it cost her a fortune in legal fees. I’d hate to think what would have happened if she hadn’t had a large trust fund.

          #2 heating oil

          Using a budget plan, essentially a locked in price ceiling for the coming year with 12 equal payments, in round numbers the cost per month went up $100. To give the number perspective, it is a 50% increase.

          Impossible to predict what the following heating season price will be.

          Whatever payment system is in place (dollars, roubles… digital until the power gets turned off) I expect nothing but gigantic increases.

          I keep saying the American people are loving it.

          It won’t change until enough stop loving it.

          It might never change, though change is really a part of life. It’s one of what is becoming an ever-longer list of reasons why the current situation we live in won’t end well.

I overheard one say “I did the living in the barracks thing in Kuwait after the first gulf war, no thanks.”

          Paula D, it’s hard to realize, but it’s true that they do care what you think. People are often fooled by the dismissive attitude and the mockery. But everything they have and everything they do is dependent upon what people think and believe. If they ever receive the hatred they’ve earned, there will be no bunker or tropical island where they can be safe. These people are probably the most helpless humans who ever lived; they can do nothing for themselves, and are dependent on others for everything. If those others want them eliminated, it’s game over.

            malthuss, being able to issue directives that sheep obey or are compelled to obey is not the same thing as being able to do something for oneself. These people can’t build a house, can’t change a tire, can’t grow food or cook it, can’t run a power plant, can’t pave a road, can’t do ANY PRACTICAL thing that makes life possible. You may think they will always be able to force people to do these things for them, but they still have to rely on the good will (or fear) of those next to them. Your doctor can make sure you never wake up from the surgery, your cook can poison you, your maid can finish you off in any number of ways. These people are dependent in all the ways that really count.

    This is how the globalist “elites” destroy America. Economy already dead and buried and this will be the nails in the coffin.

    the refinery re was an accident just like the 50+ food processing facilities that have burned in the past eight months that’s all accident to keep believing the bullshit they are doing this on purpose

    Biden is anti America all the way he has to go.
    We are on our own save yourselves and help others if you can. He needs to be run out on a rail!!!!!!

    biden he thinks burning fossil fuels in another country is fine for the environment, just don’t do it here,

      Biden has an allegiance higher than the US.

      Is it the WEF and Klaus Schwab? I believe so but the real target for Biden is who is doing the chores for the WEF.

      The Mob is international now. Its main focus is Mexico, its cartels and the US southern border. The money of the Mob and its WEF leader is promoting every anti-US activity they can get into and get away with.

      Caravans, drugs and trafficking are paying the bills for the WEF through the Mob.

      The finale is approaching fast. The final straw will be the capitulation of all Federal authority to UN level organizations. That could happen soon if GOP wins in 2022. The WEF through the Biden Mob will be going for the jugular if Biden loses control.

      • Blackbird May 13, 2022 at 9:58 pm #

        The capitulation will be to the WHO via the “Pandemic Treaty”.

        The Corbett Report, Episode 417 is a good place to start if you’re thinking “Pandemic Treaty?” He provides lots of links to important elements of his broadcasts.

        My guess would be this fall/winter – to coincide with the “elections”.

    Great lyrics by a modern 29yo artist. Listen to the song at the bottom.

    https://genius.com/Billy-strings-taking-water-lyrics
    Cold cold ashes on the ground
    Nothing lost and nothing’s found
    Friends and loved ones falling down
    Can’t you hear that mournful sound?
    Nothing left but memories
    Of things I still can’t stand to see
    There’s an empty spot in me
    Where my hometown used to be

    This old boat is taking water
    It won’t be long ’til it goes down
    We’ve had enough to push us over
    Time to turn the wheel around

    Neighborhoods left to decay
    People died or walked away
    Nowhere left for them to stay
    While we just look the other way

        Mr Mango

        Go to Mexico. Stay there. The mangos are far sweeter. You can live in a modest house within walking distance of the beach for $500-600$ per month in any number of small towns on the Pacific coast. Organic vegetables will cost 1/2 as much as in the US. And your doctor’s bills will be 1/3 as high and the standard of personal care far better.

        Blackbird

        I’ve recently been trying to diagnose a nerve problem in my leg. The tools that Medical Doctors utilize are MRI’s, bone scans and X-rays. None have recommended any treatment other than Advil. When I visit the Orthopedic clinic there is not a mask in sight. When I walk across the street to the internal medicine clinic that is owned by a large hospital chain the intake nurse guarding the door demands that I stop and don a mask. (and this is mid-May) When I look down at her head as she sits at the desk filling out forms the gap between her mask and nose is the size of a finger.

        The masked Director of the Clinic, with 25 years of medical practice behind him, is fully vaxed and boosted as is his family. Three weeks ago he contacted COVTD. Based upon the stream of references I’ve been feeding him he immediately took a course of Ivermectin and was back at work within four days. On our last visit he was still fully masked (as is required as a condition of employment). When I questioned his continuance of the practice of masking (discredited by a large study in Denmark in 2020) he claimed that he was convinced that COVID was transmitted by large droplets expelled by sneezing. (A theory long since abandoned)

        Why should anyone have any faith in Mainstream Medicine when this is the level of Science that they worship?

        I’m one week into treatment for my nerve pain, not with an OTC pain killer but with a centuries-old herbal treatment from India.

    I’ve now paid a personal price for resisting: a nice “slide into retirement” position that required the stroke poke/clot shot. I got back in their faces and rejected: “I’m not taking any medications manufacture with murdered baby parts, or even tested with murdered baby parts.”

    I’m not a radical anti-abortionist, but I wanted them to see their complicity in the deaths of children. I just read about 2 children in the USA who died after being administered the Moderna jabb, unapproved for children under 18. I’d prosecute the parents (suspended sentence; they’ll have to live with deciding to kill their child) and the medical “professional” who committed negligent homicide (jail time of five years and loss of medical license, pour encourager les autres)

    Thankyou, James, for refusing to crumble in fear about the WHO Pandemic buffoonery. They can dream up any agreement they want. They can even get every member state to sign it. But at the end of the day, every nation will go its own way. Just like with the EU Russia oil and gas embargo. John Mearsheimer’s “realism” still rules.

    • GreenAlba May 13, 2022 at 6:26 pm #

      They only need two thirds of states to sign up, Hereward, and all states become obliged to comply with it, which is hard to credit but seems to be the case.

        There will be things they can do to bring non-compliers to heel as well, I imagine, like refusing international travel and trade to and from those countries. And the central banks will be in on it, so they’ll be able to choke off money and credit, seize assets etc.

    The Wall Street Journal had an interesting article yesterday predicting power interruptions this summer.

    Some of us have solar panels connected to the grid. I was surprised to learn they cannot be used in the aftermath of a hurricane or during brown-outs and black-outs for grid safety reasons.

    Maybe we should really go off grid with at least a large portion of those solar panels as a precautionary measure.

    • lateStarter May 13, 2022 at 10:49 am #

      Don’t do grid-connected. At most go hybrid. I am building my own portable off-grid system so at least I could use the washing machine once in a while.

      • Blackbird May 13, 2022 at 10:26 pm #

        And don’t expect solar panels to be a long-term solution. By the time those solar panels need to be replaced – if not long before – no one will be making them, at least not for sale to the riff raff. Solar panels are best used to wean oneself from electricity, and get acquainted with passive solar.

    • NickelthroweR May 13, 2022 at 10:55 am #

      People need to rethink the benefits and uses of solar. This is what I did.

      Powering my home off of solar isn’t a possibility. Too expensive and too unreliable. Instead, I have solar panels that will come out to charge my battery powered tools. I have battery powered chainsaws, lawnmower, rototiller, trimmers, etc.

      I have a wood stove and wood for heat and cooking. It would not be possible to heat my home and cook food using solar panels.

      • beantownbill. May 13, 2022 at 12:24 pm #

        Good thinking. When (if) the grid goes down we will all have to make do with a lot less things in our day-to-day living. I believe even most CFNers here have no real idea how difficult it will be to survive.

        • malthuss May 13, 2022 at 2:02 pm #

          That assumes they/we/ I/ you do survive a power down.

          and for how long will the power be down?

          • beantownbill. May 13, 2022 at 3:05 pm #

            Once the power goes down it will be a long time before it comes back up, if ever. Depending on circumstances, it could take either months or years. You guys on the west coast could survive a winter, but out my way surviving winter will be problematical.

        Even though I have never actually worked and used it, I have a certificate in design and installation of solar energy systems, and yes, they are usually designed just to feed into the grid, and the energy for the house comes from the grid. Blackout, no nothing.
        You need a heap of expensive batteries and an amount of electronics to actually be off grid, and then you are being frugal always, or you will run out.
        Nobody has grid connected and battery back up. or maybe they do somewhere, but I don’t know that it is very common anywhere with a reliable grid.
        Solar hot water does make an enormous amount of sense, and can be very simple. But usually they are backed up with grid power or a gas heater. But I think they make sense before crash as hot water costs a heap for the average house, and after the crash, if you were hypothetically still living in your abode, I think you could easily adapt to the amount of hot water you would have just by timing the use well.
        Solar stoves, as someone suggested because you are never going to power an electric stove from a solar installation.

        • Daddyotis May 14, 2022 at 2:39 pm #

          I’m grid-connected w battery backup, Spain. Works reasonably well. If power goes out, batteries kick on without a ripple. The panels WILL charge the batteries during power outages after they get down to 80%. . I would have preferred to be completely off grid (and still might try in the future), but the wife wanted “reliable” energy access. Can’t say I blame her.

        • megabeth May 14, 2022 at 6:45 pm #

          I have the most wonderful solar oven. Can use it as a hot oven or as a slow cooker, and at 45 N. latitude, it still works ok for most of the winter.

          We have solar for the camper–perfectly fine for charging things or running LED lights.

          Thinking next about getting a pedal charger for deep-cycle batteries.

        • Paula D May 15, 2022 at 7:40 pm #

          I am grid-connected with backup batteries also.
          But it is rigged so only 4 plugs work, 2 inside and 2 outside.
          Still, when the power goes out it’s nice to have light and an electric frying pan.
          I have some sort of device that protects the lineman when the power comes back on. The electric co-op required it and I was OK with it. Never wanted to electrocute a lineman.

        How many well-known people will make the same statement, something along the lines of “tested positive, mild symptoms” followed by a recitation of the Pfizer Prayer, before people notice that something is up?

        Like, you get vaccinated, not only can you get covid, you can get it again and again?

        BTW, there is some evidence that taking that new drug, Paxlovid, as treatment, doesn’t cure your cold, it just knocks it down for a while so it flares right back up again.

        • megabeth May 14, 2022 at 6:58 pm #

          There is a COVID outbreak at a facility I’m temping at. It’s more of a nuisance illness than anything, even for these elderly residents. Only 2 have received monoclonal antibodies per IV because of their elevated risk, but one family took their loved one out and got him an Rx for Paxlovid. Great . . . Great . . . So the virus just treads water in this resident for 10 days, then recrudesces, just as everyone is over the hump and out of isolation. Hopefully, the strain will not have drifted, and the recovered residents are still immune!

          I read the package insert, and Pfizer tries not to show its ass, there. “This is an investigational drug . . . ” it begins. One thing they do cop to is that this drugg, essentially a cold symptom remedy, can render any future anti-HIV drug useless in the patient.

    Jim, you seem to be all over the place. This is the classic negotiation stage as it vacillates between anger.

    First you admit that the idea seems preposterous, then appear to conclude its entirely true. But then after you question how it is to be achieved, you proceed to list off many of the program features.

    First and foremost is money. National militaries are incentized not by principle, but promotion. The way to advance one’s career is war; it doesn’t matter if the enemy is foreign or domestic.

    Secondly, it’s easy to bust out a population through resource restrictions, in this case a pincers movement of high fuel costs and food shortages.

    Third of course is the culture shift through the introduction and encouragement of outside people.

    As you can, it’s really not difficult at all. The anger -> depression stage is where some finally come to understand that all of their hope and faith was entirely misplaced.

    Your fellow citizens were never the stalwart individuals you believed. That in itself was an invention, a residual effect of an intentional ego boost needed to have everyone rally against the mustache man.

    Now the primary target are those that are now not only no longer needed, but still retain some memory of their programming, made laughable that they actually believed the BS.

      ” No Reply ” is a song by the English rock band the Beatles from their 1964 album Beatles for Sale. In North America, it was issued on Capitol Records ‘ variant on the British release, Beatles ’65. The song was written mainly by John Lennon and credited to Lennon-McCartney.

            I remember when a music publication, Rolling Stone probably, had run a hit piece on Yoko, back in the day.

            A woman wrote a letter in Yoko’s defense. To the charge that Yoko “broke up the Beatles”, the woman’s answer was “So what?”

          after a good run of about 10 years, JL ran out of inspiration.

          If you doubt me, listen to his work 1971-1980.

          The last time I saw him was near the dakota, at a macrobiotic restaurant that they frequented.
          I could have talked to him [he was on the way to the loo, alone] but I didnt.

          A psychic [friend of friend] told him he would be dead in 3 months and indeed he died 3 months later.

          He and McCartney were all-rounders that could just as well go solo, but I don’t think they were what really held the band together.

          I think the hidden genius in the band was likely Harrison. A truly creative guitar player who is technical enough to get his ideas out is often the glue that holds bands together. And those guitar players often aren’t the type of all-rounders that can go solo.

        The memory of the girls in the Beatle’s audience screaming so loudly that you couldn’t hear their music reminds me of the American’s histrionics over whatever the latest thing the popular news media is pushing. Back when Beatlemania was happening, a teacher told us it also happened with Frank Sinatra and what was causing it was that the musician’s handlers paid a few girls to act out and it caused the other girls to follow along.

          Well first causes first: the general emotional/sexual repression, you know, the kind that allow for the creation and maintainance of Civilization. The music released the girls from this and they loved it – just like a roller coaster without breaks is fun until you hit the ground.

        Decent site, in a previous house situation I went out in the market to make deals with discount dealers for specific deliveries which might be scheduled to accommodate their delivery route and have a minimum # of gallons to make the discount work. Having a wood stove capable of maintaining heat at an acceptable level was a huge plus.

    • mitchellc May 13, 2022 at 12:21 pm #

      OK, weird slide, but I’ll play.

      With the veritable mountain of information that has come out about the Beatles over the last 60 years, one salient aspect is the recognition than John and Paul rarely actually collaborated after their very earliest hits.

      So, song references now have become more of a matter of factual attribution, rather than any attempt at artisticly elevating one over the other.

      For example, hard days night is almost entirely John. With rubber soul on, any fan knows immediately which is which.

      Two great examples of the very distinct differences are 4 songs released as two separate singles: rain & paperback writer (between rubber and revolver), and strawberry & penny (before Sgt peppers).

      However, even for the non fan, all you really have to do is recognize the voice: they always sang their own songs.

      • Beryl of Oyl May 13, 2022 at 12:50 pm #

        Agree. However, no matter how much a song belonged to one or the other, there was always some contribution that made it a Beatles hit, even if it was a very small contribution.

      • malthuss May 13, 2022 at 2:08 pm #

        those pesky publishing deals, thats why the songs were falsely

        Sometimes some good backstory comes out of Ringo. He said in an interview Paul sings some lines on 98%, not always audible. He attributed it to Paul just singing along, purely into the music.

    “How many of you not fully entranced by media psy-ops are willing to just say “no, and no more”?”

    Well, that’s really THE question, isn’t it?

    Don’t look for too many resisters within gov’t or it’s enforcement arms. We can begin with the military. Having been previously employed by (and given servitude to) the military forces of the United States believe me when I say that said personnel are trained rigorously to follow orders. And follow orders they will. Yes, there will be a number who manifest a conscience but that number will be paltry and insufficient to affect any change in direction of the military machine. National Command Authority and all that, don’tcha know. They will be dealt with as they always have been ensuring resistance doesn’t come from the military.

    Law enforcement will be much the same, especially city departments and state police agencies. Somewhat more resistance will come from county sheriffs throughout the land and herein lies our best hope for resistance backed by contemporary paramilitary organization. You know precisely the sheriffs I’m talking about, too. If your sheriff declared your county a “Second Amendment Sanctuary” you might have a fighting chance.

    Much will depend upon the mettle of your local sheriff.

    But the main body of resistance will come from The People. Success will depend upon how many decide to grab their pitchfork bang sticks and how soon they choose to do so – AND if they still have the strength to do so. Left to their own devices, they won’t actively resist until starvation of the populace is well under way, which will be too late by far.

    My dear Mr Kunstler, I’m afraid I’m simply not as optimistic as you are.

      Yes. Many don’t realize that County Sheriffs are the highest constitutional officers within their counties – even have jurisdictional authority over the Feds.

      For some of the finest – check out North Florida Sheriffs. For any county in the US – the most important local election by far is the County Sheriff.

    ~ ‘Rain’ by Eivør ~

    https://youtu.be/zst-6FLASRI

    “This video is actually inspired by reality. This plot depicts the fate of countless men from the Faroe Islands. Only two generations ago, men would leave on schooners, be gone for months without any word. Their families would often be waiting for more than half a year at times, not knowing if they would return or if the sea had already claimed them. Sometimes all able-bodied males in several entire families would join the same vessel, leaving their families to charities of others if they did not return. This looks like it could be around WWII which claimed countless Faroese sailors as they braved the German mines to feed the Brits.
    Many stories are about ‘hamferð’, which is the moment we see the husband’s reflection in the mirror, despite him not being there. Hamferð is basically a soul, which at the moment of death, can be seen by loved ones as a final goodbye. A way for the deceased to tell them to stop waiting for them to return. The wife knows she is a widow, and thus goes to join him in the sea.
    A beautiful rendition of history.” ~ Sólvá Túná Rúnadóttir

            I’ve heard of Grimes, but not her work and so am in the middle of her tune/video on You Tube, called ‘REALiTi’, which is how she spells it I think.
            I actually like it so far (and as such, might look more into her work).
            It feels much more ‘free-form’ compared with what I am still becoming familiar with in Eivor’s which seems to have found a niche– how large, unsure– in an otherwise crowded space. Why that might be so, I’ve some ideas about, but they are only formative.

          I live near a long term care place and maybe a year or year and a half ago, a senior guy came outside in the wee hours of the morning making lots of noises and apparently banging on a bus-stop-shelter’s glass ostensibly about how he was being very poorly treated in the facility, presumably due to CV19 restrictions and whatnot.

          I finally got dressed to go out to see if I could address some of his concerns, but by the time I got out, he was already heading back in.

          When CV19 restrictions began, I remarked how I was still seeing guests and caretakers freely go in and out of the place without any restrictions, including, unless they put them on inside and just before going into the seniors’ rooms, masks.

          In the legacy media news around about then, we began hearing relative horror stories about how seniors where left to fend for themselves (many couldn’t) and how, eventually, some military personnel had to be employed. Many seniors might have died in the ordeal.

          This, to me, begged a few questions, as stuff like this can, and one of the main one was what’s going to happen to me if I become ‘senior enough’ where I might face inordinately relying on government personnel. It’s not like I’ll be necessarily able to handle a loaded gun at that point either.

    Here’s some commentary from the underrated Ace of Spades:

    A dozen times Obama told us that, behind closed doors, Republican office-holders would tell him that they were secretly in favor of open borders (or, “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” as the DC euphemism goes) as well as Obamacare and other leftwing agenda items, but that they could not be seen voting for these things due to the evil, thuggish, unenlightened GOP base.

    We should have believed Obama. He lied about many things, but I’m now convinced he was telling the truth about this.

    A Slate article — approvingly linked by Hot Air, and I don’t think you need three guesses to identify who linked it — admits there is a Deep State and praises it for having blocked Donald Trump’s foreign policy. Bear in mind, Trump was very clear about his foreign policy. He announced it to the public. The public voted in favor of it. They were not confused about it and there was no deception regarding it.

    Trump’s foreign policy was not just Trump’s foreign policy; it was the foreign policy America’s voters chose, democratically and fairly, after being fully informed about it and having had an entire campaign season to consider it.

    But an alliance of neoliberals and neoconservatives in the permanent foreign policy Blob in DC illegally and unconstitutionally blocked the democratically-selected foreign policy from going forward and to this day, the neoliberals and neoconservatives are high-fiving each other about their subversion of Our Precious Democratic Norms.

      The problem with Trump according to Martin Armstrong who has been advising Heads of State for decades, he said Trump thought being POTUS actually meant he actually made decisions.

      He realized too late that he doesn’t really make any decisions unless approved by the criminal gang known as the Deep State. They are the ones dictating US policy both domestically and internationally.

      He hired the wrong people because he was too naive to realize they were part of the criminal operation that works behind the scenes to make decisions for the POTUS.

      Beryl of Oyl, I don’t have the heart for a critique of Trump. I think he genuinely tried to fulfill his promises to the voters. I viewed him with dismay at first and expected him to be a disaster (though not as much as Hilary), but he gained my respect by showing real courage and determination. The lies and attacks from the so-called press, and from every other quarter, were so over the top that even a saint would have lost it. He had no support at all, except from people who were powerless (i.e., those who voted him into office). He may not have been a good judge of character but, on the other hand, maybe it wasn’t possible to find people with any kind of qualifications who wouldn’t bow to the Deep State in the end. Overcoming this kind of opposition, the greater part of it being out of sight, would require God-like powers. All things considered, he did well. I think Martin Armstrong is partly right in thinking that he didn’t understand how relatively powerless POTUS really is. But I also think Trump is a great negotiator, as opposed to a great fighter, and you can’t negotiate with the Deep State.

      • thirdcoastlegend May 13, 2022 at 2:51 pm #

        Trump’s indefatigable ability to keep his composure in the face of all the attacks on him and his family was incredible.

        Trump is a good negotiator because in his heart he is a businessman, not a soldier.

        It’s all symbolic now, but the symbols are really the most important thing. At the base level, our minds operate using symbols. Somebody, maybe Joseph Campbell, said the best writers see the world in terms of symbols, a la James Joyce. Symbols are very powerful for humans. Trump symbolized extremes for both “sides.” And now, with hindsight and by comparison with the alternative, viz, “Joe Biden,” Trump(ism) is winning day by day, minute by minute. It’s obvious to me that a tempest is brewing. Batton down the hatches!

    The other day my employer had a >$10K cash deposit to make. To avoid the IRS/DHS “you must be a criminal” trigger, they split the deposit in two, and I was elected to make the second deposit. Apparently, the flunky bank teller neglected to ask for my relevant info (SS#, name, address, drivers’ license #, etc.), and now the bank manager keeps calling us to get the info. I keep refusing, and so does our bookkeeper (bless her soul!).

    I’m looking forward to a call from the IRS, cuz they, in fact, do have my name, just none of the other info. Fucking bastards!

    • cowbell81 May 13, 2022 at 11:37 am #

      Wow, really? You should have simply deposited it in your personal account and blamed an error on the bank’s part if your employer ever came back to you for the juice.

      Barry Bonds according to reports used to do that with his on the side girlfriend. He would have her make deposits just a tad under 10 ten grand so as not to alert the IRS.

      • thirdcoastlegend May 13, 2022 at 2:53 pm #

        Do that too often and the IRS will label it, “structuring,” and come after you.

        • tresho May 13, 2022 at 8:33 pm #

          “Do that too often and the IRS will label it, “structuring,” I think a depositor only has to do it once to bring down the wrath of the gods upon themselves.

    • tresho May 13, 2022 at 8:32 pm #

      “they split the deposit in two” IANAL, but I do have read the law and made bank deposits over the years that approached or exceeded the banking limits. Splitting deposits to avoid the full effects of the law is banned by the same law you referred, somewhere in the fine print. Most of the banks I use will apply the limit for checks >= $3000, not the full $10000, to capture those who split up deposits. I imagine that refusing to provide the info the bank wants in order for them to meet the legal requirements to process the deposit would most likely results in the bank’s refusal to accept the deposit. They’ll let you know maybe 6 months from now.

      • JTinMD May 14, 2022 at 9:58 am #

        thanks for the info, tresho — gonna look into it. They have my name anyway, plus I’m a depositor on the personal side. There’s just no escape apart from total escape — in for a penny…

    “While families are struggling to pay higher prices at the pump, oil and gas companies are recording record profits,” Pelosi said. “This is a major exploitation of the consumer, because this is a product the consumer must have,” she added.

          Why do they draw the line at their own offspring? Money. Mothers of newborns have a great deal of pressure on them to farm the infant out early and head back to work, even if they are married to a good provider. Part of this is social pressure to “be more than just a mom.”

          I did nurse my baby for well over a year. Well over. But I could never have done that if my husband hadn’t been a good earner and sort of “old school” about a mother’s role.

          I was a member of La Leche League, and most of the members were affluent white women. The formula feeders had to make bank, I guess.

    If I may, allow me to expand your scenario using the time tested step processes experienced from prior historical events.

    The next phase is regional concentration – a trend easily identifiable today. Next comes the civil war as the various factions fight over control of the central governing authority.

    I’m not certain who will win, but its easy to incapacitate cities. Supply lines (freeways) and power are the two key vulnerabilities. Think past lighting to consider the pumps required to get fresh water in, and raw sewage out.

        • Night Owl May 16, 2022 at 6:33 am #

          My point is that wokeism is not real. It is astroturfed by Open Society and related organizations connected with the 2030 agenda. Operations like Netfilx are part of the cultural assault apparatus. Here in Europe they use stuff like Eurovision.

          Check out who Netflix’s key investors are. Obama is one, and has probably done more to promote division and hatred in the US than any other major political figure in US history.

          Recall also that one of his final acts in office was to legalize domestic propaganda, paving the way for “news” and media organizations to print whatever they like, with no accountability whatsoever.

    It’s a good time to prepare if you haven’t started. Start by buying more food, even if its 25 dollars extra at a time. You can still find affordable canned and bagged food from different sources. It’ll be difficult to say how long that will last, however. By this Fall, it may be a totally different environment.

    Get a garden going this summer, or join a grower’s collective where you can buy shares of vegetables.

    Talk to your neighbors. Start to network with people. Find out who is mechanical.

    Think about Plan B or Plan C. Do you have a back up to your furnace? Do you have extra parts for it? Or your water system?

    Overall, try to put your antennae up out there.

    “… they are producing a grand opera of distraction to direct the American public’s attention from the sinking of our own ship-of-state in the waters of Babylon… water is streaming in below-decks…”

    “No baby formula for you, non-aborted birthing persons of America!”

    This is more than just the lack of supply of a vital product. It is symbolic of something much bigger: No baby formula because… no need for ‘baby’ because… baby and YOU don’t have a future on this Planet anymore. Thus it has been declared in a perverse gospel of death by the Great Dark Side Predator Vulture Class. This is how They feel about us. This is how They ALWAYS feel about us. And soon… so They hope… They won’t have to ever think about us at all. Problem solved forever.

    These Times are a massive sociological/political/spiritual test and experiment: ‘How much crap will people take… How much can ‘We’ keep doing to Them and get away with?… Will People ever reach a limit… And if They do, will They just quietly wither and die or do They finally react and in what form?’

    And They have provided plans and contingencies for all possible outcomes to those question. These are the gods among us, you know.

    History and legacies are being written right now. The future of the Planet is at stake. The lives of countless innocents that hope to be born is being decided right now whether they will have lives worth living… or will life on this Planet be nothing but a slavery hell-hole for those lost souls who might still remain?

    And as those answers are being decided right now… over half the World’s population doesn’t even know this epic battle for The Ages is even going on.

    How can you win a game if over half of your ‘teammates’ aren’t even involved in the game and don’t even know what is at stake? And of those folks who ARE aware… how many left have the will and stamina and skills to do something about it? Is weariness setting in?
    Getting tired of the Fight? Like a spirited horse that gets broken and tame and compliant and just hopes to munch on a few cold oats at the end of the day?

    Hey Jim, good post today as per usual. Just wondering, how much work is involved with keeping chickens? I read an informative book on the subject called City Chicks but would like to get your take on how much time is involved.

    • cowbell81 May 13, 2022 at 3:58 pm #

      Can’t speak from personal experience, but I imagine it should be relatively easy. I am sure there will be health challenges with some of the chickens, like you experience on a farm with any livestock. Just go to the local Tractor Supply and get the necessary medicines, protein packed chicken feed, etc. Perhaps the biggest challenge will be constructing a proper home for the chickens, with adequate roosting space and grazing area. Keep the roosters separate from the hens because they can occasionally get very territorial and violent.

      • Islander May 13, 2022 at 5:38 pm #

        Yes, you need the space. That is the meaning of “free range.”
        Best is a movable cage type of thing so that the chicken droppings can fertilize different areas of your field.

        But beware of common predators of chickens, among them skunks, raccoons, and hawks.

      • White German Shepherd May 14, 2022 at 5:29 pm #

        Chickens are easy. They are a good source of eggs. Each hen will lay about two eggs every three days. Get at least two hens so they don’t die of loneliness. A rooster is not needed and they are noisy.

        Raise rabbits for meat. They grow more meat faster on less feed than a chicken. The flavor is good, meaty without that “chicken” flavor. They are quiet and not too stinky.

        • Not_GeorgeT May 14, 2022 at 11:30 pm #

          Chickens are rather easy if done with a little planning so maintaining them fits your schedule instead of running your schedule. The eggs will last a while if left at room temp.

          The rooster can be useful. Finding a good one is the difficult part. A rooster who mostly makes noise only when necessary, such as sounds which inform the hens of impending danger, is worth having.

          Rabbits are, as noted, a good alternative.

    • Anthea May 14, 2022 at 1:28 am #

      Chickens aren’t much trouble to care for. Let them out in the morning and feed them (and collect the eggs). They will go into the coop by themselves around dusk. Shut the door to keep out predators.

      I had a lot of trouble with predators when I was free-ranging my chickens and my previous house. No problems for the first year, but chickens will eventually attract predators, even if you have none to start with. Your best bet for protecting chickens from predators, aside from a secure chicken coop, is a good dog. If you can obtain such a dog, he/she will also kill all the rabbits that are eating your garden and protect your goats from the coyotes. Unfortunately, few dogs fit this bill. My daughter and son-in-law who live next door had such a dog (part Great Pyr and part Akbash), but he died last summer.

      My present dog is a sweet, lovable creature, but he is strangely indifferent to all intruders but the UPS man.

      But I have decided to get a gun and learn how to shoot it. I see baby rabbits all over the place. (Not good, if you have a garden.) There is also a neighbor dog that has stolen at least one chicken–as shown by another neighbor’s trail cam–and probably several. I have been told that if you fire a shot or two over his head he won’t come back.

      But chickens are scarcely any trouble at all, if you can get control of the predator problem. Ducks are also really delightful–much cuter than chickens, and their eggs are esteemed for baking. And if you want to fuck with people, get a couple of geese. They are the equivalent of junk yard dogs.

        Anthea, get yourself a standard Mossberg 500 shotgun. They don’t cost a lot and will last 5 lifetimes. They are modular; many different accessories are available for different applications i.e. chokes, barrels, different size shot, slugs buckshot. But just out of the box with the 26″ barrel with a ventilated rib and 3 included chokes and a few boxes of #4, 5 or 6 shot will be pretty much all you’ll ever need to deal with any problems that might arise around the homestead.

        • Anthea May 14, 2022 at 4:35 pm #

          @ BackRowHeckler:

          I was wanting more of a multi-purpose item–something I could hunt deer with, for example. Or, more accurately, something my daughter or son-in-law could hunt deer with. I would have to shoot them from the porch. Which is a definite possibility, since I see them often, about 50 feet from the porch.

          I’m also a little afraid of the recoil of a shotgun, as I’m getting up in years.

          I have my eye on an AR-15.

          My son-in-law has a shotgun. (I don’t know what kind.) My daughter has a handgun. She got spooked a couple of times by strange noises in the brush and trees while doing chores after dark and before her husband started working from home she was alone here.

            The Mossberg is modular, as noted. Pump action vs semi-auto, not a lot of moving parts and rather easy to clear if a shell misfeeds. Some states are “shotgun states” regarding deer hunting. No bolt or semi-auto rifles allowed. They will function well.

            The AR 15 is insufficient for deer hunting, thus deemed illegal is most states which allow semi auto hunting rifles.

            Recoil? A 20 gauge slug will take a deer. It will also work for upland game, also noted previously. It doesn’t have to be a 12 gauge. The 20 gauge can work for rabbits without vaporizing them. Ever consider a .22 caliber rifle for the rabbits?

            There are low-recoil shot shells readily available in both 12 & 20 gauge.

            I would suggest buying inert shot shells to practice managing a shotgun. They need constant feeding if to be used as a defensive tool. Make it a muscle memory thing.

            It is a tool. Making a choice involves having the best tool for the particular task.

            Hope my and BRH’s comments are helpful.

          My Facebook friends are starting to tell me how tasty fried rabbit and rabbit stew is. One of my high school friends recently told me about shooting her first squirrel when she was eleven–with a shotgun. She says her family ate rabbits and squirrels all the time when she was growing up. I was not so fortunate.

      The level above hardly matters. WEF is the public face of those who control most of the money, food, electricity and water in the world at this point.

      Corbett is good, but the best source is the Corona-Ausschuss, a group of lawyers in Germany who has interviewed most of the leading canaries in the coal mine with regard to the Great Reset and Agenda 2030.

      Their collection of sessions on the CA website, along with Fuellmich’s Grand Jury sessions constitute a body of work that would leave even the lowest of IQ with a good understanding of what is going on.

      Whether one takes the time to look at and understand said materials is another question entirely.

        Also, it isn’t about money. It is about the creation of a control structure unlike anything the world has ever seen.

    • Sean Coleman May 13, 2022 at 6:20 pm #

      It is very interesting why they do it so openly, although there are limits, for example taking down lists of young global leaders from the WEF website.

      One explanation I have heard is that they just cannot resist boasting about it.

      Another explanation could be that they do not really care if people know because there is nothing they can do about it. It would only take a short sharp media campaigin to explain even the craziest thing.

      Another explanatoin I heard just the othe rday is that it is ‘karmic’ (whatever the hell that means), I think it is along the lines that they have to give people a chance. If they ignore the fine print and swallow it then they (the criminals) cannot beheld to account.

      As people here are aware, I come at this from the mass pscyhology angle, the madness of crowds and the conviction (which is widely accepted now although nobody expressed an interest in it when I used to go on about it here, and elsewhere, at lenght), the conviction that athe world is in the grip of an ever deepening sprial of collective fantasy, And in a fantasy you cannot think straight and do not consider the consquences of your actions just like when you are blind drunk. This is why the evidence in moral panics is always barely hidden (I always had the image of a corpse buried under a quarter inch of light, reddish, sandy soil), and as in the case of Savile ‘Hidden In Plain Sight’.

      But there is something about the third option I give above, something about having to inform people about what you are going to do to them, as if it were some legal formality that has to be There is a deeply strnage, dark quality to this that I had not suspected before, apocalyptic. I had wrongly assumed that you could not get any worse than the world losing its mind.

      I was trying to remember, for my first paragraph, the name of the American doctor who has campaigned against the US equivalent of MIdazloam, which is used to ‘treat’ ‘Covid’ patients. I do little more than try to learn about all this and remember the names and yet they still do not stick in my mind. Even so, most people cannot remember what happened the day before yesterday.

      • Night Owl May 13, 2022 at 6:31 pm #

        “Another explanation could be that they do not really care if people know because there is nothing they can do about it.”

        There is plenty we can do about it. Yuval Harari, Schwab’s psychopathic right-hand man, and one of the most sickening fucks I have ever listented to, talked openly about it in an interview.

        hat is why they have been hiding these networks and cloaking their intentions by adopting the phony corporate green/equity/inclusivity agenda.

        Even here on CFN we see that some can only begin to begrudgingly accept it. The plan is rather genius, in that even if some people see it, they can’t bear the social shame of going up against the McMedia and the associated social pressure of being labeled a conspiracy theorist.

        And the march to 2030 continues.

        • Sean Coleman May 13, 2022 at 6:44 pm #

          So are they hiding it or is it in your face? Which one then as you have said both? John Waters wrote something parallel last year where (from memory) he said that they were fieindishly clever and only a few sentence away from that said that they were idiots (or something like that). I pointed this out to him and said (diplomatically but truthfully) that I agreed with both propositions.

          As for Harari, i first heard about him from a Greek vlogger who was reviewing a recent book called Human Kind but a Dutch historian calle Rudger something or other. He got the story about the prison experiment from the book and that is where I got it. ‘Rudger’ apparnelty caused a storm int he social media by criticizing hte Davos crowd in Davos (in 2019 I think) for not paying their taxes. He had been invivted there (according to Vasilis the Greek) because he had been writing in favour of UBI. He said the rich should pay their taxes. Of course neither Rudger or Vasilis get it. And Harari had reviewed the book favourably. Vasilis thinks Harari is wonderful.

        • Sean Coleman May 13, 2022 at 6:49 pm #

          Just to clarify. when I wrote “because there is nothing they can do about it” I was of course referring to what they believe not what I do. I believe there is a term for it in literature, to give the character’s point of view rather than the all-seeing narrator’s. in the town of Killarney I think I was practically the only man who actually did do anything.

          • Night Owl May 14, 2022 at 4:02 am #

            Yeah, and Harari discussed that specifically in the interview I mentioned. The idea that if people understood what was happening, then the WEFers would face a level of resistance that would be impossible to overcome, due to the sheer numbers of the resistance.

      • Sean Coleman May 13, 2022 at 6:33 pm #

        He was on the Ausschuss last year and descrebed how the results of the trials for the drug were freely available on the CDC website even though they showed it killed an alarmingly high percentage of the subjects. It makes no sense. Why on earth did they make it public? And why did nobody, literally nobody untiol he came along, ever think of checking it?

        And that, finally, reminds me of the Stanford Prison Experiment from August 1971. Remember., this was the experment the student pretend prison warders became sadists simply thhrough wearing a uniform. A Fremcj sociologist and film maker, Thibai;t Le Tessier (? another name), flew out to California in 2018 and studied the case. Teh first shock he got was that he was the first person to ever think of looking at Zimbardo’s papers. The second shock was what he found. Far from getting carried away the prison guards had been intesively coached to behave sadistically and a list had been drawn up inlcuding forcing the the prisoners to stand up naked for 15 mins at a time to humiliate them as punishment, waking them up twice in the middle of the night, solitary confinement. The aim of the experiment (apparently) had been to see how the prisoners would react in conditions of intense pressure, where they had been robbed of their individuality. In other words, the experiment was about the prisoners, not the guards. And it seems to me it was a precursor of what has been done to the whole world over the past two years.

    “There is further suggestion that all this mischief is at the behest of larval would-be World Fuhrer Klaus Schwab. A more preposterous idea I have not heard in all my born days. And yet what else accounts in country after country for the bizarre super-coordination of insults to the world population ”

    With all due respect to our host, it is not at all a “preposterous” idea. He may still be wandering in the Bond-land, but I fear that he has perhaps never stopped to think about how cadres are developed, and how they function.

    Adolf Hitler was also a “preposterous,” a wholly unlikely little fellow as candidate for fuehrer. But it turned out that he was a little fanatic with a clear vision of how to create a leadership cadre and how to position the cadre people to take control of a population and nation. Basically as enforcers to make sure that there were no “malingers” when it came to following the “laws” that were quickly passed to underpin the system. It’s called Gleichschaltung. It really doesn’t matter how “preposterous” Schwab, Gates, or anyone looks. What matters is to understand how they have built up an organization that places cadres in leadership positions while staying under the radar of both the public and leading cultural and political analysts.

    Mussolini was the first Fascist, but he didn’t have the organizational understanding of Hitler to become First Fuehrer. Or possibly Klaus Schwab. Don’t forget, too, that Schwab has the services of the biggest international management consultants, McKinsey and Co., to draw on in his “reorganization” program of the world. In Britain, McKinsey headed up projects to reorganize British Rail, the PO, and many other government agencies. This is their bread and butter.

    “Who are McKinsey biggest clients?
    The clients are often leading businesses (e.g., Fortune 1,000 companies like Coca-Cola and Microsoft), investors (e.g., Private Equity firms like KKR), governments (e.g., US Dept. of Energy) and nonprofits (e.g., Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation).”

    Note public sector entities and international NGOs.

    .Why not do the same on an international scale adn within international supposedly public sector entities such as the WHO? McKinsey is deeply implicated in the WEF program, also I bet in setting it up. I have no doubt that the organization of the Nazi Party is a major case study in the McKinsey university.

    Just Google “McKinsey and WEF.” Lots of hits.

    NB: “The [McKinsey] Global Lighthouse Network is a World Economic Forum initiative in collaboration with McKinsey & Company. It examines the future of operations and considers how Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies are shaping production.”

    See also:
    https://www.weforum.org/organizations/mckinsey-company

    Some of the Nazis were full of hocus-pocus, like some aspects of the WEF. It is a major fail to let oneself be distracted by such decorative manchettes. What counts is what people do, not what they look like or their frilly mumbo-jumbo. What is obvious to those who look is that the WEF has succeeded in placing cadres in leadership roles all over the globe, and, thus, in coordinating pivotal policy areas on the international level.

    Thanks for today’s article, James. It’s a good one.

    When will people say ‘no more’? I’m increasingly inclined to say ‘never’ or perhaps when they are near death’s door from starvation. Lots of proof even up here among the CFNers that still live in The Truman Show and adhere to and egg on and support the machine that is crushing them. Of course, not to be too critical, we all still depend on the system for most things, so it’s not as if we can avoid it. Still, avoiding what we can would be a good start – and I don’t see people ready to do that just yet.

    The baby formula thing is downright disgusting. Not just the dearth of available formula, but the deathcare industry’s push toward convincing women not to breastfeed, which really took off in the 1960s (if not before). In yet another mass programming event which has gone on for decades now, women came to believe that their infants needed formula, not breast milk. How did they pull this off? Same way they pull off every psyops they have.

    Hospitals and big pharma are evil parasites.

      Right on!
      IMO the real scandal is the cascade of learned helplessness that lies behind this new “crisis” (and props up the baby formula industry).

      Remember the scandals surrounding the Nestle company and its activities in Africa?

      What Nestle did in Africa they had already done in the West, at least in the USA to convince women that they were deficient in the nurturing and care of their own infants:

      ## Creating a need where none existed.
      ##Convincing consumers the products were indispensable.
      ##Linking products with the most desirable and unattainable concepts—then giving a sample.

      Read in full:
      https://www.businessinsider.com/nestles-infant-formula-scandal-2012-6#nestl-was-accused-of-getting-third-world-mothers-hooked-on-formula-2

      Even in cases where a mother genuinely cannot breastfeed, infant formula can be made at home. Without the GMO soy, sugar, seed oils, etc. that are prime ingredients of industrial infant formula.

      First corporations told women they, the corporations and “science” knew better how to feed infants. Now they are saying they know better how to conceive and gestate an infant.

      The “crisis” provides a great locus to start saying NO to these swine.
      NO to replacement of humans by a manufactured GLOOP.

    I did my first bit of ’emergency shopping’ yesterday when I got home and my wife was out. I did the scecond bit this evening. Pasta, rice, tuna, sardines, salt, some tinned vegetables, honey and peanut butter. And cooking oil and matches. Things that should last a couple of years. You cross the Rubicon when you do it as you can noloneger put off into some vague future the proepect of it all crashing down. Even if it does not happen it might save a bit of money as prices continue to rise. I had been listening to the story of Noah on a Polish evangelical YT channel. Any suggestions about what else it is worth buying. I do not know about water.

    My wife said I had done this before, about 13 years ago, when I moved our money out of the main Irish bank (AIB) just a few days ahead of the crash. See? she said. You got carried away then too. Well, not really, I replied. The banks all failed and we would have lost it all had not the Irish governmente bailed them out.

        Ireland is more iinsane than anywhere. They have undertaken to take in 200k Ukranian ‘refugees’ and I heard a week ago that 26k had already arrived. As I had guressed many are no more Ukraniamn than I am but the usual mix of Asians and Africans. it will be illegal to buy or sell turf from September. Turf! In Ireland! New houses cannot have chimneys. It is not that they are specifically illegal, only that it is practically i8mpossible to meet ‘energy targets’ if you have a chimney. By the way, it is clear that the idea with the refugees is to provoke a ‘humanitarian crisis’ in order to weaken property right; the Justice Minister recently said that she hoped that it will not be necessary to seize people’s property or force themm to take in refugees in their own homes. This is called ‘flying a kite’. People here something like this and then tune into the next news broadcst and there is no mention of it, so they reason that perhaps they misheard it earlier, or it does not really matter or that it never happened.

      Once you have a two-year supply (of things that last two-years or more) don’t let it sit. Rotate your stock. Buy a new can, eat the oldest can.

      I built up my stockpile slowly: buy 2, eat 1, store 1.
      When the oldest cans started nearing their expiration date, the stash building ended and the stash rotating began.

      Gives ya a couple years to learn to grow your own food, or come to terms with becoming a brigand.

      • R banjo May 14, 2022 at 10:52 am #

        Great comment and a very common sense approach. Blackbird. I have a year or more supply and one needs to rotate or give away at least.

        I have been gardening for 3 years.
        The first year was magic and it did very well,

        The 2nd year not so much as I lost a little interest in the choices and flavors of some of the homegrown stuff.

        Last year was a heat wave and nothing came up. Not until winter.

        I covered everything with visqueen or plastic and it thrived in the hot house all winter.
        Even buried in the snow.

        Potatoes and leafy greens of all kinds, onions and carrots.
        One has to get used to the flavors, nothing taste’s like store bought, something to do with sugar content.

        I’m personally getting fresh ideas from Dr Tom Cowan, he has a bitchute channel and gives lots of helpful tips on the future of new reset or what ever you want to call it.

        He and his family lives up Kunstler way in upstate. New York.

        It takes a lot of time to connect with local food folks and there is some hope in that.
        Some of his zoom call stuff is real helpful.
        As a side note…
        .

          i subscribe to his Bitchut channel too. I got interested in Stefan Lanka’s stuff about viruses, and Kaufman’s. Cowan had someone on recently who said he had cured himself of asthma by natural remedies. My son has asthma and does not look like he will grow out of it (he is 21) and I must follow up on what there is, especially as the inhalors may not be always available to all or any of us in the future.

            Research the expiration dates which are 2 years from date of manufacture vs the actual shelf life. Some meds last for decades.

            There’s more $ to be made in tossing meds after 2 years and buying more instead of realistic shelf life and storage recommendations extending the useful life of the med out possibly past a decade or a few.

            The expiration date is more a mechanism to increase profits and decrease litigation.

            Inhalers are usually in sealed containers which makes for a long shelf life.

            Some meds do have a short shelf life and require more specific storage methods.

            Do your own research, pay attention to the wording of the ‘package insert’. It can be a tool for providers. It is a tool approved for publication by the legal department.

        I am getting my brother in law to show me how to grow potatoes in a small patach aat the bottom of the garden. It will not be enough to feed us for more than a few days but it will at least give me an idea of how it is done and (I hope) provide some seed for future years. Rabbits get into the garden but I think potatoes should be safe from them, or at least I hope so.

        • MaryQueen May 14, 2022 at 5:56 pm #

          You can grow potatoes in bags! There are special bags made just for it at any garden site online, they’re like $8 to $14 each at least last year when I bought mine.

        • Blackbird May 14, 2022 at 9:02 pm #

          Rabbits – bunnies actually – ate my tomatoes, eggplants, and pepper seedlings last year. They will eat your potatoes if the plants are small enough. I had to add a layer of chicken wire to the bottom of the existing deer fence.

          • Not_GeorgeT May 15, 2022 at 7:03 am #

            I have raised beds. Last year I wove twine across the susceptible areas. This year I’m going for the chicken wire or something similar to cover the beds. Small sections so I can access the plants. Possibly I’ll build the wire into framed sections, which would put me one step closer to adding plexiglass covers for winter gardening.

    Wow James. Your brief blip of honest, down in The Hood “parlance” gave me a glimpse of what a Street Academy must sound like in Upstate New York.

    There is a future vision, that began a long time ago, along this path of revolution. You may have to “dust off” a leader who’s constituency was “the desperate, the damned, the disinherited, the disrespected and the despised.” Remember this James ? I remember watching it happen:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TobbB_w0pB0

    About 27 minutes in we learn a little about a prayer. I was so moved by that speech that it brought tears to my eyes. I don’t see any leaders like this any more.

    Getting back to you: Socrates, a polarizing individual (of the first Street Academy) was put on trial for impiety and corrupting the youth. He was given the Death Sentence and forced to “take the vaccine” ~ as they say. He was about your age.

    At our age, saying “Viva la’ revolucion” seems like the most we can do. Visualizing the moment the Foreign Troops arrive ~ I’d say not lifting a finger to protect “them” will make a big statement at the right time. Thanks for all your work James.

            There was a major money crisis in September 2019. I recall it independently—that is, caught my attention on its own at the time, not just on hindsight.
            It had to do with overnight payments of some kind and was a major international monetary crisis. Per Patrick Wood, this crisis probably prompted Event 201 in October and the rollout of the covid op a couple of months later.

        I try remaining open to new ideas and concepts. I’ve not been sold on the long-term viability of digital currency stored in digital wallets. In addition to the apparent price volatility, it’s still using energy in the present and future. This energy need represents a form of counter-party risk.

    ” If it aint one thing, it’s 10 things, but it’s always something. The only constant is shit happens. One thing for sure, nobody knows what is going to happen. 130+ million registered gun owners in this country, hell, there were only 50-60 million soldiers fought on both sides in WW2. ”

    If I remember correctly , nine out of ten casualties in WW 2 were civilians.

    Gun control used to be called Imperialism .

    It was how a group of aliens who commonly were less than 2% of the population could treat the 90% who were natives like serfs.

    Last night for some reason I wound up reading about Germany’s first colony ; German Togo.

    Togo was , and is , a small African country . But at its height German Togo had a grand total of 150 Germans in the entire country.

    I’m gonna go ahead and guess that wasn’t even 1% of the population,

    But that’s really just trivial detail.

    Show me ANY country , in ANY era of human history , where the disarmed were the enviable class.

    The gun control pitch has always represented itself as springing from a desire for security and or some humanitarian sentiment.

    But its real origin is always in the viewing of the average person as subhuman serf or cattle.

    If the U.S. Government falls then so many people armed , granted , MIGHT result in a Mad Max scenario.

    But , disarm all these people , and I GUARANTEE you that if the U.S, Government falls you will have a Mad Max scenario.

    Shit anyone should have learned in Kindergarten ;

    Bad people will never disarm or be disarmed.

    That leaves good people with only one humanitarian or moral option.

    Anyone who really fucking believes in human rights should have yanked their child out of that prison right then.

    Every 8 year old has a pocket knife is the only ultimate check on bullies.

    Without it , it’s open season for bullies.

    It doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to figure out how that is going to turn out ;

    A formula ;

    Pair that with the notion that if you aren’t part of the privileged it must somehow be your own fault that you aren’t.

    If the above is true ,

    then Foreign troops have been in residence in your country for quite awhile.

    That they speak perfect English and know who Kim Kardashian is , is neither here , nor there.

        Kids should learn sexual respect by watching the example of their parents.

        Hahahahahaha! Yeah right!

        Or from watching the examples of their sports and Hollywood heroes.

        Hahahahahaha! Yeah, double right.

        Where do most learn it? From each other. And movies, and porn and now TV streaming.

        Well John, if you think “Mutual respect” is what should be practiced in middle school..I should ask…”Don’t YOU remember what it was like in Middle school and High School…?”

        • JohnAZ May 14, 2022 at 3:42 pm #

          Read it a little closer. Parents and teachers should endeavor to teach them mutual respect.

          Oh yeah, my parents failed at this and left me and my siblings to get their “education” from the peer group.

          Parents teach by setting examples. Today’s parents suck at this because their examples are horrible.

      And to think, we used to just establish a pecking order by who was the toughest (or perceived to be) and who was most willing to drop gloves and go at it. [Tony Leazenby, as I recall. Little short fuck and not particularly athletic, but he fought like a drunken Irishman. Signature move: shin kick with work boots.] If you didn’t like the names people were calling you – and they were a helluva lot worse than incorrect preferred pronouns! – you either got used to it or you learned to fight. Law of the jungle man! It looks a whole lot better now in retrospect, doesn’t it?

        Yeah, I remember scrapping with a fellow 7th grader who was calling me names. It made me fit for life. So, also, when Mrs. H. pulled me by the hair out of a 5th-gtade classroom.

          Working in Osaka in the early 1980s, I remember a rather sensational news story. Two of his young victims laid in wait for a middle-school bully to pass by a lonely spot on the way home.

          When he came along they attacked him with a claw hammer and bashed his brains in. And then the “extra touch”: they dug out his eyeballs with the hammer.

          All around thirteen years of age.

          Not such an unusual event, either, in a very high-pressure, stressed-out society.

      Just two points —

      At what point do all these educated , Middle Class , school teachers , school administrators , lawyers , court officials , and police officers ,

      say to themselves , ” I gotta pay my grocery bill ” does NOT justify my collusion in fucking over a 13 year old for trivial shit ?

      At what point does one admit such injustices really have nothing to do with Joe Biden or Bill Gates , but have everything to do with average Americans looking the other way while their own people get fucked over ?

      Second point —

      Last time I checked , ( about 20 years ago ) a sex change costs roughly between fifty and a hundred thousand dollars.

      Who the fuck has fifty or a hundred thousand dollars for cosmetic work ?

      I’m still waiting for pretty much anyone to admit this hasn’t got a God damned thing to with human rights , or even any abstract ideology.

      This is all about rich people doing whatever the fuck they want to do.

    Fellow Clusterfuckers and Knuckleheads, Day 1 and 2 Bilateral Upper and Lower Blepheroplasty update from sunny NM, aka “the Land of Enchantment (and fire)”:

    Day 1: Surgery was smooth and uneventful. I almost look forward to them for the sleep. At my age its hard to come by really good sleep, and nothing beats anesthesia sleep… except for the hangover.

    This was some DEEP sleep anesthesia this time, complete with breathing tube, thankfully inserted after I was out. Groggy as shit the rest of the day with a sore throat and raspy voice from the damn tube. It was all I could do to stare blankly at the TV. Recommendation: The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling, Parts I & II. Fascinating man, fascinating life, fascinating career.

    Swelling, bruising, and seepage as advertised and a little more. Lots of gauze blotting and ice. Not for the weak of heart. The anesthesia also dries everything out, so as that wears off and the tear ducts come back to life the bloody seepage kicks into high gear.

    Day 2: STILL a little groggy and swelling overnight MUCH worse after getting up. Didn’t elevate my head, so expected. Came down a little after shower and getting around. Not a pretty sight whatsoever, but the color is beginning to fade on the left side already, so that’s encouraging. Dr. must have squeezed more fat out of the right side lower, as that’s where the most swelling and discoloration is.

    Thoughts: This is a MUCH more aggressive procedure than I imagined going in, from the anesthesia to the immediate after effects. That said, he took A LOT of skin out of both upper eyelids, and as it just so happens, my prep nurse had just had the same procedure done by the same Dr. a year ago, so I got a good look at the “after.” She looked great, and after coming out of surgery she assured me that I looked pretty much par for the course. Pain was moderate day 1, much less day 2. Swelling just the opposite, but it’s still early, so imagine being upright will allow much of that to go down. Stitches out in a week, so we’ll see how it goes from there.

    Oh! And winds are calm today, so hopefully all this fire nonsense will calm down again, at least here locally with the Cerro Pelado. Calf Canyon and Hermit’s Peak to the east remain serious concerns.

      Dis,

      In case you didn’t know, I have a little experience with surgery (lol). Right now I’m outside on my stoop watching the world go by – except no one else is going by. Anyway, I’ll trade you hip surgery for eyelid surgery any day.

      The body is amazing, isn’t it? I can feel myself getting better, although it’s a long, slow progress back to normalcy. By tomorrow, you’ll be a lot better than today, as well. It’s 90 degrees out, so I’m not going to walk, but tomorrow it’s supposed to be 71, so I’m going for my first, brief walk then. You should go out as much as possible, life is too short and you gotta take advantage of every opportunity. It doesn’t matter if you’re bruised and swollen. Ya think anyone who sees you like that is gonna be putting out any mental energy from seeing you?

      Good luck and don’t let the women swarm over you, you lucky bastard.

      • Disaffected May 14, 2022 at 3:52 pm #

        Thanks Bill. I stayed at a motel down in Santa Fe for the recovery and I actually had breakfast down in the lobby this morning with NO sunglasses on. And nobody swooned or went nuts (Except for the older little Mexican guy who was bringing out breakfast, who did a funny little doubletake), even though I was looking pretty hideous.

        And uh no, I’ll stick with the eyelids for now. I could probably still use a left hip R&R too, but I think it can be managed, so I’m sticking with that. I think it was just telling me to stop doing stupid shit anyway. The body’s like that. You’ve just gotta be smart enough to listen.

    • MaryQueen May 14, 2022 at 6:10 pm #

      Did you get the surgery for cosmetic reasons?

      • Disaffected May 14, 2022 at 10:30 pm #

        Yes and no. It looked terrible of course, but the extra folds on top trapped sweat and dirt and made them itch constantly, which made my eyes and eyelids red and irritated all the time, so it was a whole cyclical thing. It was really bad for the last 5 years or so until I finally looked into getting it done, and it turns out it’s a pretty common procedure. As I said, my prep nurse as I was going in had just had it done a year ago too, and it looked very nice. No scars or any deformities. Uppers looked absolutely perfect. Lowers aren’t quite as perfect, as they’re essentially deflated of underlying fat and then tightened. No scar or anything, but you can tell where the bag was if you look really close.

        • Disaffected May 14, 2022 at 10:36 pm #

          But yeah, it’s considered cosmetic for insurance purposes. They will cover (at least partially) prominent overhanging drooping brows if they limit field of vision 20% or more, but that’s a pretty high standard. That wouldn’t normally be an “eyelid” thing per se, but rather fat or other tissue on the brow itself.

          At $6K, I judged it to be reasonable.

      And I appreciate your report; I’m thinking of having something done with my right upper eyelid, which lags because of Graves’ disease. That eye just will not open up or look upward well, anymore. I’ve always hesitated for various reasons, but I’m thinking of a good eye guy who’d reconstructed my mom’s eyelid after cancer excision.

      • Disaffected May 14, 2022 at 10:57 pm #

        I would think one upper shouldn’t be too traumatic or expensive, although a lot of the cost is baked into reserving the OR itself and the anesthesiologist. That might go for $3-4K, I would think. I’d look into it.

    Madness Across the Pond

    Bill Tulkinghorn, American Renaissance

    I grew up in South Wales in the 1970s and 1980s. It was an insular working-class community clinging to the imagined glories of a socialist past and fighting against the economic reforms of the 1980s out of what British commentators still call tribal loyalty, a phrase which even then they were careful to use only about the white working class.

    In my childhood, nonwhites were such a small minority that any interaction with them was rare. I was not aware of any racial tensions. The real dividing line was class, not race.

    I was lucky to have poor but ambitious and hardworking parents and to have reached the age of 18 at a time when higher education was free of charge and standards were generally high. The nonwhites I met at the universities I attended were all bright, law-abiding, and generally pleasant to be around. There was far less tension there than there had been growing up as a bookish type in a largely anti-intellectual environment.

    The media stereotype of the race realist in the UK is that of a tattooed, coarse, uneducated thug whose interests revolve around soccer, violence, cheap beer, and fried food. I believed that for many years, during which I made a reasonably successful career as a commercial lawyer which allowed me to live in relatively crime-free areas and enjoy music, theater, and travel across Europe. I simply didn’t think about race. I knew it was a problem in the United States, but Britain was different. I thought that such British race problems as existed seemed to be as much about the hostility to hard work and success among parts of the underclass created by generations of welfare dependency and low expectations.

    My views started to change in the early 2000s when what was then known as political correctness infected culture across Europe. It became impossible to go to a Shakespeare play without between a third and a half of the cast being chosen for their race instead of their ability to speak verse. Classical concerts were plagued by mediocre fillers in the first half, selected by reference to the gender or ethnicity of the composer, paid for by taxpayer subsidy and forgotten after the first performance. White musicians are now being dismissed from opera orchestras to make way for less talented blacks. At the same time, a taxpayer-subsidized orchestra of black players programs the justly forgotten Florence Price alongside Beethoven and everyone is too polite, or too afraid, to comment on the unfairness of the comparison (3). The same establishment is also too afraid to comment on the success which Asian musicians have achieved, and entirely deserve, on the basis of talent, ability, and hard work.

    My conversion finally happened when I had to deal with the effect of anti-white prejudice and woke ideology in my profession. Judges in England are appointed by a body called the Judicial Appointments Commission (JAC). It contains a minority of judges and lawyers, and a majority of human-resources types steeped in diversity and woke ideology. In order to be appointed, you have to demonstrate that you “understand the importance of diversity, take an anti-discriminatory approach and demonstrate sensitivity to the particular needs of different communities, groups and individuals.” Anyone reading articles on AmRen probably understands that this is code for demonstrating conformity with woke ideology. The JAC publishes annual diversity statistics, each year boasting how the proportion of white men being appointed is yet again lower than it was last year.

    I want to be very clear that this is not sour grapes on my part. I would be a very bad judge. I lack the patience. I would be bored. I am a natural competitor, not a natural referee. But I want the referee to be fair, competent, and worthy of respect. I regularly appear in front of diversity hires who are none of those things. Thankfully they tend to be at the lower end of the judiciary, dealing with preliminary issues and leaving trials to higher-ranking judges, but promotion now depends on politics and not ability, so promotion for some of them is only a matter of time.

    Some of the diversity hires lack the intellectual capacity to come to grips with conceptually difficult issues. Others lack the temperament to work through long and tedious material. A dispute about loans between a company and its directors, and the tax treatment of them, is not going to be very interesting, but it still needs to be decided fairly. There are too many who exhibit bad temper, favoritism and laziness in equal measures.

    It is professional misconduct for a barrister to express a view that the judiciary contains diversity hires. In September 2020, a barrister was naïve enough to trust his opponent and express the view that a judge had been appointed only because she was female and south Asian. He was fined and publicly reprimanded. The fine is low, but the reprimand is enough to harm his career forever.

    I see my clients suffer injustice. I cannot risk telling a client the reason for it unless I trust that client enough not to repeat what I say.

    The organization where I work has started demonstrating its conformity to woke ideology. Without any consultation with the members, it published a statement on its website last year commenting on the riots in the UK prompted by the death of George Floyd. One would have hoped for something to the effect that an accused person is innocent until proven guilty, that justice requires dispassionate consideration of the evidence, and that violence and wanton destruction of property are always wrong. That isn’t what my organization said. It isn’t what any of the organizations said.

    There is a concerted attack on European culture, the rule of law, the English common law system that has developed over centuries, and white people in general. That led me to the dissidents who oppose these things. AmRen and sites like it have shown me the underlying reasons for black underachievement and for white self-loathing. I had no interest in biology, IQ, or human biodiversity before coming here. Now I feel that I have a better understanding of what we need to preserve for the next generation and the lies being told to us to try to stop us doing that.

    Jarek: It was never going to work. Other races and cultures put their own people first. Why can’t Whites see that? Because they are molded or conditioned to project their own virtues (both real and specious) on to other races. And in return some, the most “devout” even seem willing to take on the sins of the other in a blasphemous imitation of Christ.

    All in all, a formula for extinction. Lower class or uneducated Whites don’t do it, at least not nearly as much. This is the big reason they are hated so passionately by the higher classes. They are heretics in terms of the new religion.

    • BackRowHeckler May 14, 2022 at 2:15 pm #

      In China, are the Hans people worried about diversity, beyond the desire to crush any group that is not Hans? No, these diversity and equity issues appear to be concerns in historically White Nations only, and as a way to liquidate Whitey both literally and metaphorically. What’s surprising is about 40% of whites in the US, UK, France and Germany cannot only go along with it, but promote it. These are the self hater with their heads up their ass.

  69. Q. Shtik May 14, 2022 at 2:20 pm #

    A few personal items (actually, all my comments are personal, aren’t they?).

    1. Filled up my PU truck yesterday at Costco for $4.259/gal. Total cost just under $89.

    2. I’m listening to a Rutgers baseball home game vs Bowling Green. BG has a first baseman named Fugitt. I thought that was pretty funny but the radio announcer pronounced it FYOO-jitt. I’m guessing his classmates in Junior High School addressed him as “hey Fuck It.”

    3. Peter had a close call yesterday. After dinner for reasons unknown Peter exited the kitchen thru the butler’s pantry (no, we do NOT have a butler) toward the dining room. I was standing at the sink doing dishes. I turned my head to the right and saw Peter with his left shoulder against a door jam. The angle of his body was at the same angle as the hour hand of a clock when it is pointed at the 10. I immediately saw the cause of this near disaster. Peter’s pants had fallen down to mid-thigh or lower and tripped him up. If he had passed thru the doorway one foot further his body would have fallen onto a delicate tea cart with a glass top filled with various bottles and objects d’art. He pushed off the door jam into an upright position and hauled his pants up. You see, as I have described in the past, Peter has no ass or, more accurately, almost non-existent buttocks so that pants cannot be reasonably held up by a belt. It requires suspenders and he is very reluctant to wear suspenders because, I suspect, he feels they make him look like ‘farmer Brown.’ You, the reader, are prolly thinking that Q is exaggerating when he says that Peter ‘has no ass.’ Well, the exaggeration is only the minutest. I would describe Peter’s buttocks as about the thickness of a cloth hand towel (larger than a face cloth but smaller than a bath towel) folded over double. I know this because when we got Peter home from Florida I had to assist him the first couple of times he showered. It was not a pleasant sight.

    4. Another Peter incident just happened. Early this AM my wife got a text from Peter’s life-long buddy, Ed, saying that he would be picking Peter up at 1 pm to go out to lunch. This touched off concerns about making sure Peter would be ready to go at that hour. We cannot count on Peter to remember that he has a lunch date. I suggested to my wife that she write out a note on full size paper using a thick marker pen ” Be ready for 1 pm lunch with Ed Rz.” This note was carried to the third floor (along with his breakfast) and taped to his TV screen. At 12:57 pm, just to make sure, I yelled up to Peter “it’s 3 minutes to 1, are you ready?” He looks at his watch and it says it’s only 12:30. This is Peter’s Rolex that he recently had fixed for $1,147 but, incredibly, Peter has not yet mastered setting the time on his watch. At this very moment his buddy Ed arrived at the front door. I ran down to answer his knock and apologize for Peter not quite being ready. Ed knows Peter like a book and says “don’t worry no ‘prahlem,’ by the way, you know your wife is a saint, don’t you?” Peter arrives at the front door wearing MY shirt fresh from the cleaners.

      Are you a chronomaniac? I’m reading a book by a self described one – Bob Berman, Secrets of the Night Sky. He went to the library and was refused entry because it was 5:01. He said it was 4:55. He knew because he set it twice weekly to short wave signals from the cesium atomic clock at the Naval Observatory. She relented.

      He’s tormented by people not celebrating New Year’s at the right time, ignoring the leap seconds added to most years. Days aren’t 24 hours long, but rather 23 hours, 56 minutes, and 4.1 seconds.

      Quartz watches are good, accurate to seconds per day, but better yet are ones that get shortwaves from a cesium clock. Or an actual cesium watch – which are very expensive.

    Well of course it is preposterous. As it should be. According to the plan. Maybe, right? I understood Babylon to be a symbol for the satanic one world order. But it appears that the Joe Biden administration? proposed amendments to give WHO authorities that supersede national laws. And of course the US gov and Bill Gates are the biggest WHO donors. Of course it may not succeed but honestly it appears to be working fairly well so far.

      It won’t work in Iran. It won’t work in China. And it won’t work in Russia. And that is for starters. As for the Resistance elsewhere, there are hidden resistance forces on the planet that will enter the scene if and when “serious fires” begin on the streets of western Europe and a body count begins there (as it already has in Eastern Europe i.e. Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, etc. although for different reasons.) From what we know, ideas and information and video evidence and essays on the travesty of what has happened over the past 2 years in the world (2020, 2021) did not compel people to move towards an open confrontation up to a point of adopting direct assault. We will see what happens in western Europe which is the key. In the meantime… – “A FIRE IN EUROPE”

          I did have a birth defect, but it is common and seldom clearly linked to genetics.

            The thin part reminds me, my Dr. is trying to sell me on the idea of 1,500 calories as a day. Says that’s what the original caloric studies indicated was needed to sustain a normal man doing moderately strenuous field work all day. I laugh to myself and let him continue to harbor the illusion that that might be remotely possible for me. Absent the coming food shortages, when who the hell knows what’s possible, I doubt I’ve – or most Americans I know for that matter – subsisted on 1,500 calories a day since I was 3 or 4 years old.

    I have been trying to remember the comment sections I have had comments removed from or been banned from. I am not the kind of man who goes out of his way to get banned, am I?

    E MIchael Jones deleted a couple of my comments on Bitchute about Irish politicians, inlcuidng a former minister who is a Canadian feminist and (it appears ) once a white witch. I did not blame him but stopped commenting for a year. I wonder if one’s comments are ever noted by public figures like him and I am pretty sure they are.

    EMJ appeared on a ‘truther’ Bitchute show about three years ago and argued that Epstein was involved in a blackmail racket, It was a jokey site and I left a neutral comment explaining that not one part of the Epstein story stands up to scrutiiny. I went back a couple of days later and saw it had been taken down. Truthers!

    Then last week another rather extreme Bitchute channel I watch had a couple of videos about he partents of the missing McCann child. An expert explained how an interview with the mother appeared to show she was more interested in proving her own innocence than in concern for her missing daughter. I commented to the effect that this was not surprising because she and her husband had come under intense, unbearable public crfiticiism, which was the last thing they needed. He wiped the comment and banned me.

    And in early January Irish exjouornalist John Waters wrote an article comparing what is happening now to the Holocaust. I commented in detail that the whole story was not merely questionable or debatable but insance. He suspended the comments that week because he was worried that his enemies would use it to discredit him and he did not want to jeopardize his work. He was right. I still subscribe because, like EMJ, he is unmissable and notobody has a better handle on Ireland. Anyway, I do not comment therre now and that is a relief really because it is time consuming.

    Interestingly, his close ally Gemma O’Doherty was back on EMJ’s channel a few weeks later and EmJ appears to have ‘discovered’ this fraud. Perhaps my long comment had not been in vain. And John himself in a recent interview corrected his interviewer aobut the how to describe what it is like when you learn new information that overturns your view of the world. “The word”, he said, “is ‘dizzying’.”

    I told you he was good. That is the perfect descreiption. Some days I get dizzy two or three days in a row. That is how mad it is.

    Abd as I write this there is someone on the Ausschuss talking about Epstein. Oh dear, so much deceit everywhere. There is no point builidng up elaborate theories if the basic facts are not righti.

    And finally, I wish people would stop using the phrase ‘on a daily basis’. What is wrong with ‘every day’? I does be hearing it on a daily basis, so I does.

    You asked the question: “Why is it “important” that we spend thirty, forty, fifty billion dollars pounding sand down the rat hole that is post-Maidan Ukraine, grift central for the sketchy nexus of US politicians and their sponsors in the warcraft industry?”
    The answer I offer is that the Russians have to learn that the West is serious about stopping them in their expansionary tracks. And if the Ukrainians are pissed enough with what Russia has been doing to be willing to fight for their country, then support them in doing it, and degrade the Russian ability to fight war and expand as their historical desire takes them.

    I find it amusing that we are talking about Ukrainian corruption whilst so many here are QUIET about Russian Kleptocracy. Those Russian oligarchs got their wealth how again? Why are they Putin supporters? Why is Russia’s Gini coefficient so shitty? So, yes, Ukraine has some corruption, but if you want to go there, go there with Russia as well.

    And I will be interested if we will continue hearing predictions on this site of Ukraine’s inevitable demise at the hands of the Russian war machine. I am impressed by the Russian advance away from Kharkiv. Sneaky stuff! Just like Kyiv! Running away to strike a blow, … but where exactly? For those interested in cogent, thoughtful, and dispassionate analysis (as opposed to feel good Russian propaganda of how well things are going for the Soviet Union, ah, I mean, Russia), I suggest, https://www.understandingwar.org/publications.

    Their analysis make sense–and their prediction also: Russia will try and annex the Donbas and other areas it has conquered since February, very soon, if it can, and then tell Ukraine (and the West) that invading it will free Russia to use nuclear weapons to protect Russia’s (expanded) national boundaries. I think it will be Putin’s last option to salvage something from this mess. Otherwise, we are looking at the possible systemic collapse of the Russian army.

    • KesaAnna May 14, 2022 at 9:20 pm #

      I have been a pro – Russian partisan — well , pretty much my whole life.

      is that now when you trot out , ” The Russians are coming ! ” narrative , even the most right – wing , or conservative , U.S. flag – waving – types ,

      now shuffle their feet , turn red , and look away.

      Increasingly nobody mouths that shit , or goes to any trouble to endorse that shit , except boot – licking conformist political hacks being paid to do it.

      And I really , really , really , really doubt that ANY of this is due to the persuasive or propagandistic skills of your Russian Agent Kesa Anna

Who would have been on your preferred list of participants? Your lack of engaging the argument is telling… Neither you nor KesaAnna can engage the argument. And the reason is simple–nothing the Russians are currently saying actually looks like what is happening on the ground. The Ukrainians get more long range artillery? And the question is whether they will get it quickly enough to mess up Russian ambitions to annex the East/South-East part of Ukraine. They get it, the last Russian advantage evaporates…

    Allegedly, the Buffalo massacre assailant turned a weapon on himself at the end, and was talked out of retiring himself by the police.

    …..a $1 round for a deserved early retirement versus a multimillion dollar prolonged circus with paid advertising and whipping up the factions for revenge.
    …..the answer is “by design.”

    …it is good to know these programs and companion unacknowledged special access projects are no longer being funded by unwitting American taxpayers

    The whipping up of inflation, supply chain constriction, abortion controversy, bursting of equity and housing bubbles, and todays’ Buffalo massacre are not coincidental, but rather by design, with plausible deniability.

      The latter. While everyone expected a quick Russian victory, I suggested caution. My point was that the mic/state seemed pretty confident. Whether that was bluster or insight, it appears to be proven by the successful defense.

      The US needed a live fire arena to be able to test and evaluate whether Russia had the ability to withstand incorporation. The $40b package tells me the answer might be no, hence the reason we’re now doubling down.

      On a related note, the media/propaganda campaign has recently been raising the question as to Russias nuke command/control effectiveness. That is, can their missles really be launched?

      If we can continue to put on pressure by deploying progressively more advanced weapons, we might even get to the point where Putler is deposed if actual sites within Russia itself are hit.

      If that happens, the handwriting will be on the wall. DOW 100,000 as everyone wakes up to the fact that the West now controls 1/6 of the landmass and last great stores.

        “The west” isn’t actually in control of anything right now, least of all its worthless currency and its weak-assed Ukraine narrative.

      What did Putin say at the start of the conflict?

      “This is a special military operation to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine.”

      He didn’t say anything about “steam rolling…”

      But if you are in the Ukrainian military, it can feel like you are getting “steamrolled.”

      The Uks poked that bear for 8 years; then the RF said “enough! it ends now!”

      The only hope left for Ukraine is for some kind of coup to assassinate Zelensky and his Nazis, and open peace talks with the RF.

      Between the ethnic Russians and the pro Russian Ukrainians; thats at least 50% of the population.

      Then if you add in the Ukrainians who just want to live a simple life without war; that number probably goes to 80%?

      Ukraine is putting 50 and 60 year old men on the front lines with no training…

      The Russians don’t wanna kill those guys?

      They are even willing to pay their pensions.

      But Zelensky wants them dead.

And somewhat ballyhooed Orthodox Christian renaissance is actually quite modest and cannot stop the decline in population.

        After being savaged by generations of Communism, they were thrown into reverse and opened to Western Capitalist culture – also anti-life. The people aren’t in good condition, particularly the men, with very high rates of alcoholism. And the women have now been exposed to the mind virus of Feminism, and aren’t going to put up with them or ultimately, with any man at all.

        One theorist actually believes Putin wanted Ukraine because the people there (the same or almost the same ethnicity as Russians) are in much better condition despite all they’ve been through. I haven’t heard anyone else say this, so I’m not sure if there’s any truth to it.

          Ukrainians are like a more fundamental form of Russian?

            Yes, just like the baby formula shortage is supposedly hitting Blacks and other minorities hardest. Whites are always privileged!

            And in another sense, it is a privilege to be White. But that doesn’t mean we should just let the lower races destroy us. We mustn’t let our wires get crossed like that. The same word can mean very different things.

      Maybe because if they break it, they gotta fix it. Killing a few troops is OK, but drop a bridge, blow up a dam, destroy a city? Costs a lot to repair…and some would suggest that (The) Ukraine is but a province.

        The average American can’t understand why Russia would want to purge the Ukraine of Western neocons and globocap thugs, but leave it largely intact while doing so.

        The ignorance with regard to cultural ties and basic strategy is truly spectacular.

      And so why do white people support Putin and the Russian Federation? Payton Gendron’s alleged manifesto stated he was a communist who had lefted the midway leftist authoritarianism. Apparently he despised traditionally understood “right wing” things. So I fear the narrative isn’t this easy either.

          Eastern Europeans showed their psychological health by letting real Ukrainians get ahead of them in line. Russians would have done the same, and probably more forcefully.

    Reading the classic “A Night to Remember” on the sinking of the Titanic. No one knew what to believe at first. It seemed so unreal since everything was proceeding as normal. The band was playing a ragtime, a very light, “gay” music adding to the surreality.

    Only the designer was sure: The sinking was a mathematical certainty within a few short hours. Thus the pace soon began to pick up as the ship began to list. Slowly and with much chaos, the boats begin to load, many still no believing it.

    Those in the boats got the show of a lifetime. The ship looked like a “sagging birthday cake” with all of its lights still on. The ship began to rapidly tilt, the band switched to hymns, barely heard above the din. Finally it went dark and soon after, vertical, a dark monolith against the stars, and slipped beneath the waves.

    One ship was a mere ten miles away, and never took any of the desperate calls seriously enough to respond. The Carpathia in contrast was speeding towards the field of boats. Some say many lives could have been saved if the Titanic had sped in the direction of the Carpathia which they knew was responding.

    The water temperature was very low and the cries of the survivors in the water soon ended. The women in the boats were numb, and refused to try and pick up the men. All of their lives men had given to them, giving back just didn’t make any sense to them – a completely alien concept. Why don’t they stop shouting and being annoying? Just die already.

    In any case, what a perfect analogy for our current situation. The band plays on, but that sinking feeling is inescapable to the most aware. The rest just can’t believe it!

    We weren’t hit by an iceberg. We were deliberately sailed into one after another.

      “We weren’t hit by an iceberg. We were deliberately sailed into one after another.”

      Jarek,
      Yesss, we are taunting the icebergs..Just lide “W” told the terrorists…”Bring it on”. Finland will attempt to enter into NATO alliance. Putin says it is a red line.

      Do you believe Putin to be a man of his word…or just an empty suit full of bluster?

      Putin, in my estimation, is serious. Will he act on his red line being crossed? I believe so…and with some justification.

    • GreenAlba May 15, 2022 at 6:14 pm #

      Since you are the poster child for the lifeboat analogy, when you’re referring to refugees (can’t take people in and sink the lifeboat for everyone), I find it odd that you change your tune when it’s a lifeboat situation that requires a different narrative.

      Or rather I don’t find it odd at all.

      And don’t bother trying to make this a comment supporting unlimited refugees, which it isn’t, and I won’t make it a comment about the fickleness and inconsistency of male arguments. 🙂

      The only rational suggestion you can make when the lifeboats are full is that the women should offer to drown themselves to make way for the husbands. That’s a fair enough point if you choose to make it.

      • Jarek May 15, 2022 at 8:00 pm #

        The people on the ship had a right to the lifeboats. The shipping line failed them by no providing enough.

        Foreigners have no reasonable expectation of being allowed entry into the West just because they’re poor or there’s a war going on. That’s always the case in those places.

        A failed argument.

        Now to narrow down to specifics – and not part of the above refutation – many of the lifeboats weren’t even half full. Too much chaos and/or not enough training by the crew. As for the 2nd and 3rd class, almost none of them made it or had a chance of making it.

        Now for a quick second refutation of your last paragraph: You attempt grotesquerie as a way of not dealing with the reality of the women not helping the men (in most cases). More fail.

        • Anthea May 15, 2022 at 9:15 pm #

          You suggest that the women should have rowed towards the Titanic, rather than away from it. My understanding is that you get a lifeboat away from a sinking ship with all possible haste, as it will pull any nearby lifeboats down as it goes under. I don’t know if the part about the women making no effort to save the men is true or not.

          • Jarek May 15, 2022 at 10:58 pm #

            Well yes, I’m talking about after ship had done down.

            Thank you for admitting you don’t know.

          • Anthea May 16, 2022 at 3:52 am #

            I doubt if you do either.

            It would be difficult to know the scenario in individual lifeboats without hearing the accounts of those who were there at the time, and even then a perfectly honest accounting would be hard to come by.

            Since we do know that there was a “women and children first” policy, it is reasonable to assume that the composiltion of the lifeboats was mainly, or even exclusively, women and children. So the typical lifeboat might have had two old ladies and four or five young women, each with a couple of kids clinging to them hysterically, and a couple of women with infants or young children in arms–probably none of whom had any idea what to do with an oar. Not the ideal situation for rowing anywhere.

            We also have no way ot knowing the distance to the nearest guy treading water in any given instance. Fifty yards? Rowing any distance at all, effectively, would have required several able-bodied and unencumbered women to get together and come up with a plan. It probably wasn’t easy to even move around in the boat, let alone walk to the other end and confer with Madge, who probably had her hands full helping with the children.

            Such scenariors are difficult to imagine and highly varied, so it’s difficult to make assumptions about what those involved could have or should have done.

          • Anthea May 16, 2022 at 4:08 am #

            My understanding, too, is that no one can last more than a few minutes in water that cold. (I was rather astonished at the length of the conversation between Jack and Rose in Titanic.) Reaching a man in the water before it was too late would have required some fast rowing by several people who knew what they were doing.

          • Anthea May 16, 2022 at 5:25 am #

            Another aspect of this: The average reasonably fit woman can lift about 40 pounds–50 pounds, if she is very fit. I suspect that the women in these boats, being mostly very upper-class, were not very fit. How many of them would it take to lift a 150-200 pound man into the boat? Remembering of course that he would have been pure dead weight from hypothermia. And most likely he would have still died of hypothermia, assuming they could get him into the boat without capsizing it. Lying in an open boat in clothing soaked in subfreezing water while suffering from advanced hypothermia is not a promising situation. Sure, some could probably be saved if you had the means to warm them up and get their core temperature back up.

        Jarek

        I didn’t make any point about refugees. I specifically said the point wasn’t about refugees, but merely about the issue of lifeboats and potentially filling them with too many people, which you had used as an analogy for the refugee situation. Try to move from the specific to the general – I thought that was something you promoted. So your first two sentences are redundant, likewise your point scoring.

        You didn’t mention that the lifeboats were half empty (or maybe I missed that?) which changes the argument. And I’ve never heard anyone other than you mention either that they were or that the women allegedly rowed away without attempting to save the survivors. So, at the moment, all I’m hearing is an anecdote which may or may nor be true (I’m certainly not saying it isn’t), from a person with a known bias.

        Assuming it’s true, there would have been women and children to be saved as well – steerage passengers – so it’s not necessarily a straightforward male/female thing anyway. Maybe they didn’t fancy their chances against the angry hoi polloi. But I agree with you that not trying to pick some people up in a half empty boat is not honourable, assuming the liner had already sunk and the suction effect was no long relevant.

        But I have to agree with Anthea on the practicalities. The story in the film Titanic was ridiculous. Most people falling into that water (and not being sucked down with the ship) would have had heart failure in minutes.

        I always preferred the film Night to remember anyway, old as it was, as it was about the tragedy, not using the tragedy as a backdrop for a story about a poor little rich girl.
