From The New York Times, Thursday, August 27, 2020

It’s nice to see The New York Times acting like a whipped dog after hounding the nation year upon year through thickets of falsehood and deceit to put over their hustle of systemic racism.  “…some worry that local Democratic leaders are failing…” Really? Do you think that videos showing flash mobs of black looters rampaging through a Target Store, busting up cars on a dealer’s lot with baseball bats, and setting fire to a furniture shop might tell a different story? And that everybody still sane in this land knows that Democratic mayors and governors have been standing back, allowing it to happen?

The Democratic Party ought to worry that the voters are onto their game, because it looks like they’ve completely blown it only a week after anointing the most decrepit old pol in their donkey stable to run for president. Speaking of whom, Joe Biden finally crawled out from under a rock yesterday to issue a few timid peeps about the rioting, looting, and arson that went on in Kenosha, Wisconsin, for three nights running — and for three months in other cities around the country — during which he said nothing to halt the trashing of Kenosha’s downtown.

The different story that events themselves are telling voters is that young Americans act like savages when given the green light by politicians who refuse to enforce the laws against public violence, theft, and the destruction of property, and who justify all that with a fabricated narrative about systemic racism. Since Memorial Day, the Democratic Party has used the Black Lives Matter and Antifa orgs as shock troops in a stupid campaign aimed at abolishing the police. Well, now America can see exactly what happens when the police get functionally disabled by mayors and governors who order them to not do their primary job: maintaining basic civic order. The voters have seen it in Kenosha, Chicago, New York, Denver, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Seattle, and Portland, Oregon.

What were the Democratic Party higher-ups thinking as all this rolled out? That they could keep posing people of color as victims while they ran amok, beat people up, robbed stores, jacked cars, and set buildings on fire? That the mayhem would continue until the nation’s morale improved? If that was actually their campaign strategy, then they’ve successfully burned down their national campaign before it even got underway. Having allowed all this havoc to be set in motion, can they stop it now? I guess we’ll see. Thursday was the first night that rioters failed to turn out in Portland after their epic 93-night siege of public buildings and once-quiet neighborhoods there. Perhaps someone told them they better knock it off in case voters connected the dots between these orchestrated antics and something Mr. Trump might point out in his nationally broadcast acceptance speech.

Street operations continued, however, in Washington DC while Mr. Trump delivered his remarks at the White House. In it, his speechwriters averred pretty crisply to those forces driving to “punish” the “wicked nation” for its sins. Meanwhile, Democratic Party water-carrier Jake Tapper over at CNN howled about the president violating the Hatch Act by using government property (the White House, where he lives) to stage a campaign event — making the CNN talking heads look ridiculous in the process. When that act ran out of steam, the panel carried on about the assembled audience on the White House lawn not wearing masks as proof of the manifest evil in the GOP ranks. (Then, a BLM mob beset Senator Rand Paul attempting to walk back to his hotel after the speech. DC police had to step in and escort him to safety.)

Earlier on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi decreed that there should be no candidates’ debates between Joe Biden and Mr. Trump — though Mr. Biden previously had agreed to it. It looked like Mommy ran out of the basement to save his skin.  That can only confirm how desperate the Party is now, having set their own campaign tent on fire. Expect them to jam Joe Biden back under a rock for the duration. The question is: the duration of what? Of the interval between now and the dreadful moment in early September when they realize they must replace him at the head of the ticket, or else witness the suicide of party?

    I patiently await the woke martyr that isn’t a career criminal who was justifiably shot. Meanwhile, I bathe in the roulette wheel of pseudo-intellectual and armchair excuses.

    One recent one I heard regarding Blake was that the officer who shot him was unconsciously racist (i.e. unfalsifiable hypothesis) and that Blake was simply trying to drive away to diffuse the situation (i.e. wokesterdom’s telepathy).

    • Daddyotis August 28, 2020 at 2:02 pm #

      Sounds very similar to LaBron’s idiotic statement from yesterday. They must be getting their talking points from the same DNC podcast.

    Greetings,

    Ohio, just like in all past elections, will decide what will happen in Nov. In my 6 hour drive around Ohio yesterday (business errands) I saw Trump flags, banners, painted sides of barns, car wraps, placards and MAGA hats everywhere I looked. I’m 54 and I’ve never seen anything like it. The local radio stations were all talking about the “democratic” riots across the country.

    If Biden is running a campaign in Ohio, I’ve yet to see it. Not so much as a single bumper sticker – nothing.

    • benr August 28, 2020 at 10:05 am #

      I have seen one Biden 2020 sticker in San Diego county…One.
      I see Trump stuff all over even with the threat of crazy Democrats tearing them up, running off with them or defacing and vandalizing peoples property.

      • Ricechex August 30, 2020 at 6:27 pm #

        Maybe where you are, but in North Park San Diego Biden signs and BLM signs are prolific.

          Yea the gay part of town makes sense,

    • Nightowl August 28, 2020 at 10:28 am #

      He isn’t running in the traditional sense. You can’t run a campaign from a basement.

      The only question is if he is replaced at the last minute by The Harpy. If not, the party has simply committed itself to another four years of doing anything and everything to gum up the works.

      Soros himself claimed that the Trump presidency is a passing phenomenon. So the real question is what comes after Trump, because that is all the global capitalists care about.

      Another Trump will be needed.

      • DrTomSchmidt August 28, 2020 at 12:00 pm #

        An effective Trump, perhaps? He really delivered very few of his promises to his people… and he is going to win a in a landslide because the D’s are doing everything they can to hand the election to him.

        Conspiracy theory: white America would never permit the Democrats to put in place a police state. It’s too well armed. But if Trump builds one to clamp down on D riots, and then in four years demographic changes make permanent the D ascendancy, there’s no recourse. I really cannot understand why the D’s are SO desperate to piss off white America, enough to give up the RBG and probably Breyer seats in the Supreme Court.

        • bluedog August 28, 2020 at 12:52 pm #

          Perhaps they see what’s coming as the depression looms ever greater on the horizon,we have two forever wars candidates running for the oval office, and it really makes little difference on which is elected.The brown shirts was formed under the Patriot Act when police powers were extended it seems like the politicians they forget that they are servants of the people, but instead believe that are some little tin gods wit a whip to keep the people in their place,and you ain’t seen nothing yet it for its all preordained.!!.!!!

        • Nightowl August 28, 2020 at 2:13 pm #

          I must respectfully disagree. He has brought jobs lost to globalism back to the US. And he has fought to do so for the duration of his presidency.

          He has also not started a war, has worked to bring troops back (blocked by political rivals), and has worked various peace deals — including getting N. Korea to the table.

          The wall on the southern border is also being upgraded and newly constructed. Slow going, but it is getting done.

          Lastly, he is the only President since Kennedy to openly defy the global capitalists. Kennedy was killed for it, and they have done everything possible to stop Trump but kill him.

          The facts are the facts. You don’t tear down a corrupt system with incredibly deep roots in 4 years. Or even 8. But he is getting the ball rolling, and means what he says.

          To think I once laughed at the guy. Never judge a book by its cover.

          • Siebert August 28, 2020 at 8:24 pm #

            Me too. I have despised Trump for years but I never imagined the Democratic Party would trip over their shoelaces so relentlessly. Unfortunately they will never muster the gumption to tie them up again. I think of Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket” when Joker taught Gomer how to lace and tie his own boots. Too bad Joker isn’t out there now because they all will fall flat on their faces, and deservedly.

          • sophia August 29, 2020 at 8:40 pm #

      I live and work in the Tetons of Wyoming.
      The town of Jackson Hole and the immediate environs are one of the most liberal enclaves in America – sat down in the middle of an endless Ruby Red Sea on all sides.
      In the town of Jackson Hole – and all around it – are Trump signs and car stickers and branding everywhere – I have yet to see a Biden sign, banner, car sticker or anything of any kind – NOT ONE.
      The electoral votes of Wyoming are in the bag for Trump – that is a foregone conclusion. But this lack of a sign of life for the Dem campaign in any way in THIS town is breathtaking.

      • MontanaMan August 29, 2020 at 8:27 am #

        My wife and I have relatives right near you and on her side of the family two of her sisters because of the men they married years ago, both married into prominent politically connected generational Wyoming families. What folks back “East” in your, How shall I put this, upper class snobbish liberal enclaves would call “THE LANDED GENTRY FAMILIES. 🙂 🙂

        I have always been very proud of who my grandfather was, Roy Weatherby, founder of Weatherby firearms. For many years after my grandfather founded the company in California, Paso Robles, my father and both uncles moved the company to Sheridan Wyoming In January, 2018.

        The reason why is because the business climate which is made up of the politically radical left, simply made it impossible to continue to keep the manufacturing side of the business going. The taxes alone just for the manufacturing and shipping of firearms out of state, became exorbitant.

        There is so much that people don’t know across America just how difficult it is to keep a business going or even open a business in California. One of the things that Governor Jerry Brown did was place a leviathan size “export tax” on all rifles and shotguns that are shipped out of state.

        The climate in California as we all know is nothing like it was when President Reagan was Governor of California.

        But even then as I learned growing up California was already starting to go far left. I was born in 57 so when he first took office as governor in 67 I was only 10 years old. And he served two terms up to 75, then he declined to run for a third term.

        My father side of the family by now you should be able to tell is a generational California family. But even so the men in my family especially my grandpa were hard-core hunters, and “Bench-Rest”
        hi-caliber competition shooting. Each year we go to the Camp Perry 1000 yard shooting competition and my family‘s company is
        co-sponsor.

        Since the founding of my family’s company, my family did all it could to sponsor, “in school” proper firearm etiquette. But the day came that no matter what my families company did along with Marlin firearms & Winchester firearms and the NRA, was in a nut shell barred from high schools throughout our Nation except for schools in Idaho Alaska Wyoming Montana North and South Dakota and parts of Utah.

        And of course it used to not be this way in America. As far as I’m concerned my generation, the baby boomers should go down in history as the worst generation that our nation produced. Because it turned out to be the most self-centered, self interest, arrogant, & snide generation in our countries history.

        In closing I shouldn’t say this, Wyoming & Montana has always been very dear to my family’s heart and besides owning land in Wyoming we own the ranch here outside of Seeley Lake Montana that my wife and I live on and over-see. It borders up to the Bob Marshall wilderness, 48,650 acres of prime private hunting, fishing & trapping wilderness.

        Needless to say me and my wife do a lot of all three and our four boys that are now grown and have their own families coming up absolutely love fishing and hunting and two of our grown sons still enjoy trapping with their boys now.

        And we support America’s oil&gas industry by allowing drilling and 3 separate oil and gas distribution stations on the ranch and export pipelines that we are allowed to be constructed across our ranch 28 years ago.

      • MontanaMan August 29, 2020 at 8:32 am #

        Btw, as far as I’m concerned we have the finest homepage of any firearms manufacturing website. It’s a video that was completely filmed here in Montana and Wyoming.

        Here is the link to our company and I think you would enjoy watching the video on the homepage. Expand the page when you get on it.

        Speaking of websites and the Internet, I am completely sold on the Apple iPad Pro 12.9 which is the largest iPad they manufacture. Since I bought my first one two years ago I hardly even touch my high dollar laptop.

        And I recently bought the latest 2020 model it is absolutely unbelievable and user-friendly for everything I need to do.

      Yes, the MSM narrative doesn’t hold (again). Same as 2016 – 10K people at Trump rallies and HRC couldn’t fill a high school gymnasium. No matter what the papers and talking heads said/say, there was/is no denying the actual optics.

      Thanks for the info on everything going on south of the 49th parallel. Our own woke government prohibits us from entering your country unless we are classified as “essential workers” so most of our news is coming courtesy of your own woke-stream media or own government funded DNC propaganda machine the CBC. I would like to know how bad the coronavirus situation is and if it’s as dire as the media and your Democrat mayors and governors make it out to be or is it another case of the DNC-controlled media using hysteria and disinformation to fool the voters.

      • sanspeur August 28, 2020 at 11:42 am #

        Its not bad at all. Hospitals are empty. People that unfortunately get this flu recover quickly. Like any flu, if you are compromised, its way worse. No one has presented at any hospital with a vitamin D level above 40ug/ml. Thus showing that those with darker skin are more susceptible because they don’t get enough sun and don’t supplement. So basicall you can be para immune to most all flu’s by taking 2g vitamin C (kills virus before infection) and vitamin D supplement.

        • Sredni Vashtar August 28, 2020 at 11:57 am #

          In Kenosha, Federal Marshalls cleaned out a food truck, a van, and a large black bus full of people who came from Portland to feed the “protesters. They were filling gas gas when they were busted. Said the fuel was for cooking, but the food truck cooked with propane. Inside the vehicles they discovered Illegal fireworks, and unnamed illegal substances. The mother organization, in Portland, says their people have been arrested, they don’t know where they are and thus have been unable to arrange bail. They are very worried.

          • Kim August 28, 2020 at 9:44 pm #

            @ draupnir

            The mother organization, in Portland, says their people have been arrested, they don’t know where they are and thus have been unable to arrange bail. They are very worried.

            I wonder if they will get their bail through this organization:

            https://www.fox9.com/news/minnesota-nonprofit-with-35m-bails-out-those-accused-of-violent-crimes

            A Minnesota nonprofit has bailed out defendants from Twin Cities jails charged with murder, violent felonies, and sex crimes, as it seeks to address a system that disproportionately incarcerates Black people and people of color.

            This is a very informative article and worth reading wrt the entire bail process. Apparently, the non-profit in question has bailed out al the protesters it can and with COVID the numbers of incarcerated are generally down, so they are bailing out serious criminals.

            Like who?

            Among those bailed out by the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) is a suspect who shot at police, a woman accused of killing a friend, and a twice convicted sex offender, according to court records reviewed by the FOX 9 Investigators.

            According to attempted murder charges, Jaleel Stallings shot at members of a SWAT Team during the riots in May. Police recovered a modified pistol that looks like an AK-47. MFF paid $75,000 in cash to get Stallings out of jail.

            Darnika Floyd is charged with second degree murder, for stabbing a friend to death. MFF paid $100,000 cash for her release.

            Christopher Boswell, a twice convicted rapist, is currently charged with kidnapping, assault, and sexual assault in two separate cases. MFF paid $350,00 in cash for his release.

            So yeh, like they say, “the worse, the better”.

          • draupnir August 28, 2020 at 11:16 pm #

      You are very correct. They were harassing him over Breona Taylor, a woman killed in a botched no knock warrant raid and he introduced legislation to end them…

      • BackRowHeckler August 28, 2020 at 1:02 pm #

        It wasn’t botched. Breonna Taylor and her drug dealer boyfriend fired upon police first; cops were returning fire.

        • SuperDave August 28, 2020 at 2:06 pm #

          Wow, thank you BRH…That is information I was not aware of, so I have went and read more.

          SupertDave: You “have went” — ??? Nice! — JHK Admin

          I still believe no knock warrants are wrong, very wrong. If you do not have enough evidence to arrest someone or you are in such danger trying to arrest them that you need to an “official” home invasion to make it happen, something is not right. It is really just lazy police work at best. Get your evidence the right way, get informants to get evidence or if just arresting, arrest him on the street or wait him out…

          But, again, thanks for the info

          • BackRowHeckler August 28, 2020 at 4:13 pm #

            Yeah I hear what you’re saying Dave.

            I thought the Feds could’ve just picked up David Koresh in Waco — he was in town several times a week — instead of serving a warrant at the compound, which ended up with considerable loss of life.

        You make a good point. We, America, has been supreme in world affairs since WWII. But, that’s the way of human history, always a big dog on the block. It’s really not as nefarious as you make it sound. But, the wheel is turning; who’s turn is it next? Certainly, not Europe; they had a few hundred years of raping the world of its resources and imposing its ‘culture’, goons and all. Maybe, it’s going to be China and I wonder how you would like their hegemony?

            The National Socialists fought these very same people mano a mano in the streets and defeated them after 13 years, and 23,000 casualties – including some 300 deaths.

            They’re not going to stop because you still don’t see them. The Communists are the Capitalists, using criminals, idealistic fools, and nihilists to do their dirty work.

        Would the world be a better place without the US?

        Africa as well and all the black people would have been murdered to make way for the master race.

        The globe would be suffering under the Communist style government like Cuba or Soviet union and Chinese style authoritarian style leadership.

            People in Cuba do not in fact all enjoy the same standard of healthcare:

            https://blog.acton.org/archives/90402-the-truth-about-cubas-health-care-system.html

            In Cuba, there are three tiers: One for foreigners who can pay with hard currency, one for Cuban elites (government officials, celebrities, etc.), and one for the common people.

            Here is some real-life video of Cuban hospitals:

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNhgym2bMtA

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h95_qCTOGEE

            Look, it is just common sense. Cuba is a broken-down Third world country totally dependent on low-priced plantation agriculture and Venezuelan handouts. It has no fossil fuel resources.

            Given this, it is impossible>/i> that Cuba would be providing every citizen equally and free of charge with first-world standard medical treatment.

            It is very simple. Washington is corrupt and many politicians and think tanks are globalist agents and fronts working for the rise of China and the destruction of America.

            A good example of such a corrupt globalist agent would be Bill Clinton. It was Bill, after all, who put his official signature to the approval of China’s MFN status.

            President Bill Clinton gave the PRC MFN status, after pledging during his campaign that he wouldn’t, because it would allow the PRC to become more like the USA, in terms of economic growth. It was predicted at the time that this would make the PRC more like the USA in terms of political freedoms and human rights, but a few cynics like myself predicted the opposite, that the USA would in fact become more like the PRC in those dimensions, all while we shipped the jobs that belonged to the last reminders of the pre-Clinton, pre-identity politics left, i.e., the working people, to the PRC so we could all enjoy cheap plastic shit from Wal-Mart, and now Amazon.

            Cuba didn’t have a billion people willing (or forced) to be the new wage slaves for wealthy (and the diminishing working, and then middle, classes in the West) and so they didn’t get the same deal.

          I think the long game for the Democrats condoning the riots & violence is to get as much mileage as possible from “Trump is a racist” knowing he would condemn the riots.

    Riots or not,Red or Blue states,the tenured police officers prefer not to be bothered.

    Their favorite pastime is taking extended lunches,ticketing non-violent citizens for this or that,counting the number of seconds left till retirement (I am not making this up !)

    Or investigating the crime scene,collecting evidence for hours,raking in overtime in the process…

    “Citizen’s Arrest:

    When Can a Private Citizen Arrest Someone?

    A person can arrest someone that they reasonably suspect of committing a felony, even if the felony didn’t occur in the presence of the individual making the arrest.

    As long as a felony was actually committed and the individual making the arrest knew of the crime, a reasonable suspicion about the identity of the perpetrator will justify their arrest.”

    If splashing a small business with gasoline and starting fire from safe distance with firecrackers is not an aggravated felony – then I do not know what is.

    • neurodoc August 28, 2020 at 10:43 am #

      Your point about the cops avoiding unsafe situations and counting the days to retirement is accurate in my experience. I’ve had many dozens of injured cops as patients over the past 20 years; when I ask how many are corrupt they say 1/3, always. They also repeat your statement of extended lunches, going after non violent citizens and laying low until retiring. When I’ve heard 1/3, I use the VA Alcoholic Assessment rule: when asked how much one drinks, you double or triple what they say. Thus 2/3rds of cop may be as you described. FYI

      • John1945 August 28, 2020 at 11:08 am #

        We non-cops are no different either.

        As a Doc you probably know that NAVY stands for “Never be the first,never be the last,and Never Again Volunteer Yourself” & “Need Any Vaseline Yet ?”

        Every job has a quota.If you over-fulfill it you piss off your friends.If you under-fulfill it you piss off your superiors.

        Therefore it makes sense to stay at the top of the Gaussian curve,a little bit to the right,and never be an outlier.

        Police Departments never have stated quotas like “25 traffic tickets per cop per week” because it will leak to the newspapers and be used as a defense in traffic court.

        But every cop must fill out a weekly activity report.

        Imagine a young cop putting zeroes on every line:

        Arrests 0
        Domestic Disturbances 0
        Traffic violations 0

        It is like signing your career death sentence

        Only cops with 18-19 years under the belt can do that.

        Regarding riots-is not it wonderful to just stand there in full combat gear,doing nothing,raking in time-and-a-half ?

          John, NDoc, etal;

          Most police are human.

          Unsafe zones? In the inner city, where might there be otherwise?

          How many corrupt? “…1/3 always” Corrupt in what ways?

          Targeting non-violent citizens for traffic violations? With our extended lunches, hiding in safe houses in the Ghetto, and dreaming of retirement, who has time?

          Regarding “quotas”. No one gets together to decide how many tags must be written. There is what is called a “shift average”. If a patrolman writes so few tickets that it draws the Sgt’s attention, the Sgt. might approach the patrolman and suggest that…”everyone on the shift writes 7 tickets a month, you zero…why?” A basic function of supervision.

          “…Ndoc, the average neurologist on staff only kills 16% of their cases during surgery…you kill 40%…you washing your hands?”…that sort of thing.

          The Sgt. was always all over my ass regarding traffic citations. The standard book of 25 I would write…every six months or so. I could get away with it because my other stats were so high.

          …Avoid unsafe conditions? You gotta be kidding….

            I hope you are not upset.

            That’s the standard conversation at every Enlisted Club.
            First everybody gets drunk
            Then everybody starts searching for Truth
            Arguments gradually become non-verbal

            MP’s appear out of the f… nowhere like Jack-from-the Box and start arguing too,non-verbally,with their sticks.

            MP’s finds some drunk unconscious soldier under the table and drags him to Hell.He did not argue at all,just sat there quietly swilling his beer.But he was there.And he did not resist.

            Smart ones like me and other E4 Mafia who basically start this BS plan their retreat in advance and escape thru the bathroom’ window.

          Interesting, hadn’t thought of it that way. So that can have a tendency to put more young cops on the front lines on a regular basis than veterans (assuming the young cops are career-driven)?

          Sounds like a recipe for rookie mistakes in high-stakes situations.

            (old joke)
            High-stakes situations are not for regular cops but for SWAT.
            Regular situations are for SWAT too, once in a while.
            If you forgot to pay your parking ticket.
            And if you a re a registered gun owner-
            Instead of 2 cops they will send a SWAT team to arrest you.

        “the VA Assessment rule” The vast majority of bad alcoholics I cared for in many ERs over the years never admitted to having recently consumed more than 2 drinks. After that they all seemed to have stopped counting. My initial mental status exam for an apparently unconscious person smelling of alcohol was to say “What’s the word?” loudly & clearly to them. If they came to enough to say, “Thunderbird!” that told me plenty!

    The savages with antifa and blm have clearly alienated most working and middle class people of all ethnic groups, almost insuring a red wave in November (and I am not a Trump fan nor anti-Trumper). And, it is too late for the stupid dems to bring their brown shirts to heel, as fear and anger drive behavior and last longer than most other emotions, especially when groups of people are involved. The ‘normal’ people (i.e. NOT blm, nfac, and antifa savages, their supporters, promoters, and apologists, cnn/msnbc and their ilk included) will not forget this mayhem and destruction by early November. In fact, I suspect that the insurrectionist riots have set back US race relations to the 1940’s at best, and in some parts of the country, back to the late 1880’s. CW2 will NOT be averted, IMHO.

    Another unexpected adverse side effect for the dem’s use of brown shirt shock troops is that even the liberals I know have started to question the validity of cnn, msnbc et al, due to scenes of fires and destruction behind a moronic talking head claiming ‘peaceful protesters.’ Some liberals appear to have the ability to trust what they see even if they can’t think straight from neurotic irrationality over race delusons and RACIALISM.

    A final point: the dems have, again, shown themselves to be excellent gun and ammo salesmen. Sales of lead and lead projectors are at all time highs, exceeding the barry seotoro sales effort 8/9 years ago. There is almost zero decent ammo (other than 22 and other moronically inadequate rounds) available in local and online stores. Guns themselves, in the most sought after models, Glock, Walther, Colt, Rock River, Palmetto) are on back order. I personally know almost a half dozen liberal medical people(yes there are a few) who have bought guns (usually 2nd and 3rd rate pistols, and pistols are a stupid idea for gun neophytes) recently and asked me about their proper use. Overcoming the urge to say load gun, put in mouth and pull trigger, I referred them to a local gun range for training (when CW2 gets started, I may regret that decision 😉 ))

    Note of advice for liberal readers wanting a gun: buy a 12 gauge pump shotgun, preferably Remington 870 or similar. Its easy to load, you don’t need complex carry and aiming skills and you basically ‘point and pull the trigger’ with devastating effects out to 75 or so yards.

      • MrMangoOnMyShoulder August 28, 2020 at 11:19 am #

        I agree, but there are some surprising exceptions. An older friend of mine lives in a upscale suburban neighborhood ten minutes from south Minneapolis, and he recently proclaimed via social media that he brought his old rifle and shotgun from his youth in to the police station to give them up, as he “hadn’t had a reason to use them in 40 years, and now seems the perfect time to take any threat out of his home.” People cheered. I cocked my eyebrow and said nothing in response.

        • neurodoc August 28, 2020 at 11:54 am #

          The old friend will likely be sorry when the savages show up at his door and he has nothing with which to defend himself except a dull kitchen knife. God corrects all his errors, eventually.

          Or, perhaps he was just virtue signalling on SM. 🙂

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder August 28, 2020 at 12:04 pm #

            Hadn’t thought about that…he may have just been virtue signaling. Though I’ve always had respect for his intelligence…he lost a rather large number of logic points with me on that one.

          “now seems the perfect time to take any threat out of his home” He may yet have OTHER threats in his home he doesn’t tell anyone about. Such obvious virtue-signaling means little to me nowadays.

      Man Neurodoc, I wish you would not advise the Libs to buy a scattergun. They might just hit what they are shooting at along with everyone else in the vicinity. I’d prefer that you’d steer them towards a 2″ stubby. They couldn’t hit me if I was ten feet in front of them.

      • neurodoc August 28, 2020 at 11:58 am #

        Sorry, I know I was bad for that. My humanitarian instincts took over for a moment of weakness. 🙂

        Then again, I know one libtard in our office complex who bought a high end pump and brought it over at lunch because it wouldn’t rack. I racked it readily and his eyes popped out. He didn’t know that new guns require breaking in due to lack of metal smoothness. So maybe they won’t be able to use pump. I didn’t tell them about double barrels, so I’m good. 🙂

        • tresho August 28, 2020 at 3:18 pm #

          So utterly stupid to own a firearm and yet not go for proper training. In addition, I used to have a cousin (since passed on) who was a US Army veteran, went hunting for many years & yet was still under the impression that it was reasonable to think he could shoot just to wound someone. I told him that once a projectile enters a body, it goes anywhere the rules of physics & its other parameters tell it to go.

      Now let’s get into your specialty. Tell them about the Black brain, how it’s smaller and flatter, and less complex. Cultural? Sure it’s cultural – because it’s genetic and physiological first.

      • neurodoc August 28, 2020 at 1:14 pm #

        WOW!!! Talk about getting into the meat!!! The whole issue of genetic differences across groups is incredibly non PC and rarely talked about rationally at least in public; so here we go.

        Crick, of Watson and Crick, a couple yrs ago had ALL of his honorary degrees REVOKED because in a UN conference, he had the audacity to say something to the effect of: ‘We can’t solve the problems of africa because of africans. Their intellects aren’t sufficient to get beyond tribalism, and envy politics and work together. They can’t do 20th or 21st century tech very well.” (very approximated quote). BOOM!!!! He is socially decimated in his 80s.

        That being said in the 70’s my first masters and PhD were in psychometrics and behavioral neuroscience. Stanford Binet IQs were considered biased against africans (but americanized asians did better than Europeans who were = to hispanics) because of the verbal bias of the test. Wechsler scales had both verbal and performance (i.e. ~non verbal) IQ scales. Same as above ethnic breakdown on the performance scales, as well as Verbal. What to do? Many attempts at making ‘culture free’ IQ tests; all failures in terms of psychometric science. So, lets focus on environmental factors as predominant and ignore genetics in grad schools everyhwere.

        Then I went to med school, residencies, fellowship in MEDICINE which is, by def, very genetically oriented due to the dominant role of genetics in disease (environmental toxins and trauma nonwithstanding). No question about the predominance of genetics if you read good science, even in psychiatry and personality studies!!!! (e.g I can sometimes see in my kids traits from grandparents who died before they were born, G_d forbid :). Now, I can’t discuss anything with my former colleagues in the ‘environment predominates’ behavioral sciences. There it is; it is what it is.

          Tanks! They won’t believe me, but I’ve studied as a layman for a long time.

          If Aliens are viewing us from outer space, they would be puzzled at our Black African breeding program. Why would any successful race enable a far less able race to over-populate and replace them via mass immigration? Even encouraging their own women to breed with the primitives?

          To any who are interested: go to Bitchute and watch Black Pigeon’s video on the Kalergi Plan. The usual suspects are behind this. I now request help from the Aliens against this dark treachery.

          Thanks doc for giving me a lead-in to a tale of my very smart first cousin. He holds a doctorate in neuroscience from Johns Hopkins and has been a professor there forever. He has several ‘post docs’ who work under him.

          I have wanted to ask cousin Bruce the very question that Sredni asked you but I’ve avoided doing so for the very reason you describe: BOOM, there goes his career.

          Similarly, I have wanted to ask him questions about the infamous John R. Bolton with whom he was a room mate for 4 years at Yale (they called them Suite mates) and another 2 or 3 years as they both stayed on to get Masters degrees. Bolton was also Best Man at Bruce’s wedding. I knew better than to ask Cuz Bruce such questions as it would really be putting him ‘on the spot.’

          The point of your’s and my story is that we are all very much trapped in a PC world.

            “Suite mates” – ely is questioning my use of this term

            I, also, asked my cousin about it. He said at Yale a group of students (don’t know how many but more than two) would share a “suite” of rooms and thus they were suite mates, not room mates.

            The distinction is relatively unimportant except that there are several other students from back in the 70s who tell their friends and acquaintances that they were once room mates or sweet mates with John R. Bolton. Even in those early days Bolton was a known quantity on campus as an arch conservative. But he was not considered to be a warmonger as he is today. From the few personal tidbits I have picked up from Bruce I suspect the warmonger rep is vastly over-blown.

          I saw Crick interviewed & asked specifically about IQ tests & he stated that the reSults were quite clear & wouldn’t be intimidated into changing his analysis. What started it all was a young woman who was a student- guest in their home “reported” him after he (in casual conversation) discussed the conclusions.

      “when CW2 gets started, I may regret that decision ” May I clarify? CW1 was the American Revolution. The losers, the “Tories” were dispossessed and sent into exile. Some exiles went to Canada, some to other British possessions in the western hemisphere. The new US government had to negotiate with the King’s men over some compensation for the loss of Tory property in order to work out a peaceable relationship with the former Mother Country. CW2 roughly started with the firing on Fort Sumter in April 1861 and formal hostilities ended around April 1865, but sniping and low level insurrection continued for years afterward in the old South. Some of those boys still have “Confederates in the attic.”
      — I think CW3 is an apt description for our current one. By the way, I think WW3 ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union. YMMV.

      • neurodoc August 30, 2020 at 11:15 am #

        I’m not an historian, and not to make an obsessive compulsive point, but I would think that the Revolutionary War was a war between two functional countries, the budding US and UK, hence not technically a CW (but I do see your point that it was, in a sense, one country, UK). But, nevertheless, you can call what’s happening now whatever you want, CW2 or CW3 does not matter, especially when it’s in your town. When they come for your wife and daughter, and your food, it will be called THE WAR.

      I am surprised no one has mentioned the scene at the D.C. restaurant this past week where a mob of BLM supporters moved into the faces of outdoor diners demanding that they raise their fists in support. Many of those in the mob were white.

      One white diner refused to raise her fist and there is video of several people getting right in her face as she backed away in fear as they screamed at her “Raise your fist! Raise your fist….or else!”

      I wonder how any of you would have reacted to such an assault?

      You obviously weren’t around in 1980 if you think Reagan was a figurehead. Not to mention that he still had energy and his mental faculties in 1980, unlike Biden today who has neither.

        You are half right. Avuncular Reagan knew what he knew and after the raucous 70’s, many people wanted a return to Mayberry. Biden is much farther gone. American democracy seems preternaturally determined to choose the wrong person at a critical time. The revisionist in me says Carter would have been better than Reagan, Dukakis better than HW, HW better than Clinton, and Gore better than Bush. And as for Trump, there was simply no sane vote possible…

    Curious to know if those around during the Vietnam-era protests felt a similar feeling to today’s state of affairs on the streets, or if this feels entirely different. I highly suspect the latter.

    The hippies were probably seen as being annoying and relentless in their protests by the “squares” who just wanted to live their lives without disruption (as the current crop are seen)…but at least they had a cause people could understand. What’s being fostered in our feral youth today is so twisted in circular logic that it can’t be explained or rationally justified, least of all by one of their own members.

    For the first time I actually fear we may permanently lose what we once thought important in our society – some semblance of dignity as a people. That is now out of fashion. It seems any value held by the ‘old folks’ is immediately dismissed by the mob, no matter how logical or noble it may be, and I don’t see that changing.

    These types of disruptive movements tended to fizzle out in short order and the pendulum would correct its position, and then on to the next, then correct, over and over again. But these guys figured out how to accumulate endless funding, along with plenty of free time, all mixed with fomented, misplaced anger. We are outnumbered by the uninformed.

    Mr. Mango: I ws a junior in college 1968 and went to the Democratic Convention in Chicago witness the riots — as a larval journalist-observer. There was a similar sense of youthful energy one sees today in the street mobs, but a much stronger common culture and moral framework prevailed. There was also a sense of consequence. People who committed truly felonious acts paid a price, and we all knew it. –JHK Admin

          Yes your suspicions are correct, but the political iterations are the same with the exception being that this iteration of mayhem is vastly worse than 1968 because of the fact that the mayhem is spreading to more states in the union than 68 every evidenced.

          The problems have been exacerbated since 68 and the Greenspan Put culture of Wall Street never allowed mean reversion of the macroeconomic landscape before.

          Don’t forget that Nixon was the SOB that closed the gold window in 1971 to supplant free market Capitalism with Petrodollar USD hegemonic supremacy.

      “Curious to know if those around during the Vietnam-era protests felt a similar feeling to today’s state of affairs on the streets, or if this feels entirely different. I highly suspect the latter.”
      I was in my second year of high school in ’68 in the far southside of Chicago. We did not live near enough to hear the events at the ’68 Democratic National Convention, but I vividly remember the results. National Guard Troops in APC’s firing automatic weapons (.30 cal.) at snipers firing at Chicago Firefighters putting out arson caused fires.
      We had numerous large ‘racial disturbances’ (riots) at our high school of 5500 students (1/3 black), whereas the local and surrounding city PDs came by buses to quell the riots. More than three times I went home early when tear gas circulating inside the school (that great big ‘more than a tickle’ in the back of your throat). What a great way to get education. The pissed off young people, generally black, wanting to start big fights, particularly in the cafeterias (metal chairs can bounce and skid a long way on vinyl tile floor and do a lot of damage to legs and knees) resulting in getting another day out of school.
      The DNC riots were another thing. Young people not wanting to go to fight an ‘unjust’ war and feeling oppressed about it. You could vote kinda, and fight in Viet Nam but couldn’t legally buy beer. Plus a lot of the rich kids got out of the draft or had other connections but those of us in the middle class got ‘The Lottery’ instead. When the war ended, the protests ended.
      Today, it is the ‘incessantly offended’ who demand respect without earning it, who, seemingly, never have to get up in the morning to go to work. This is something else. I swear, the ‘trophy generation’ has grown up and wants their trophy for showing up and when it is not awarded, they want someone else’s because their ‘feelings’ say they deserve it. If they come to my neighborhood, have a lit rag stuffed in a gasoline filled quart of beer and their arm back in the ‘pitch’ position, they may be shot or more. There will be no ‘your property is not worth their life’ hesitance. It is to me and my family. They may just learn a lesson of what ‘Respect’ means. And it not all about respecting their demands…..

        ======

        You can learn the history of those times by reading “Miami and the Siege of Chicago” by Norman Mailer.

        In my opinion the big difference between then and now was the draft.

        In the process of helping my b-i-l Peter get out of his house and sell it (in March of 2019) I ran across transcripts of his grades. He managed to stay in 2 different half-assed fly-by-night schools in West Virginia for a total of 3 semesters. He took ‘fluff courses’ and still could only manage a 1.25 GPA and then they threw him out. This was in 1968-69. He was NOT ‘college material.’ His entire purpose, I believe, was to beat the draft. I don’t fault him for that. He no sooner left college than he was drafted but then flunked the physical due to high blood pressure.

        Over the years he has had endless heart issues (a quintuple heart bypass surgery, insertion of stents in arteries twice, implantation of a defibrillator two months ago, and he came close to dying 3 weeks ago because he just can’t seem to remember to take his meds. The doctor who was probably unaware that Peter was not taking his meds religiously said “Peter, we’re going to try this one last drug and if it doesn’t work the final option is heart transplant.” Even after such a dire warning he had failed to pick up the prescription from the drug store for 6 days. Peter is fucking UN-believable.

          Your BIL is a not uncommon occurrence – the “non-compliant” patient.

          What puzzles me though, Q, is where does his medical insurance emanate from? Previous instalments haven’t implied a well-paid highly skilled employment career…

          • Q. Shtik August 29, 2020 at 1:44 pm #

            where does his medical insurance emanate from? – Maj

            ===========

            It’s a long story, Maj. Someday maybe I’ll write a novel. Peter was covered under his wife’s insurance. She died 6 years ago on the 4th of July. The insurance continued on. Peter stopped paying his share of the insurance tab but somehow the Ins. Co. didn’t seem to care. The same with his separate Drug insurance. The last time I was involved trying to help him with his myriad financial issues he hadn’t paid his monthly drug ins. bill for more than 2 years and owed about $3,500. Yet, not one of the bills mentioned “Past Due.” It’s un be fucking lievable.

            He finally sold his house and ran off to Florida and had his mail transferred from my house to a P.O. Box which he kept secret from everyone including my wife (his sister). When people run off to FL they always say they HATE the cold weather up north. That’s usually BS. More likely they are trying to hide from bill collectors, alimony, or child support. Thank God Peter never had kids!

            I was Peter’s very last financial backstop. His home would have been foreclosed on if I hadn’t come up with many thousands of dollars. This earned me Peter’s utter contempt for snooping into his business. He even blocked me from cell calling or texting him.

            I could go on and on but I’m better off putting it out of my mind… if that were actually possible. It was only recently that my wife got an actual address where Peter lives in Estero, FL.

      …and I was an Assistant Professor of Linguistics at Fresno State College [for the Criminally Inane] heading up what was known as the US / AID Vietnamese “Scholarship for Leadership” program. My thirty or so students, only a couple of years younger than me, had obviously been vetted by both South Vietnamese military intelligence and the CIA / AID suits. Yet it was those engineering, management and science types who quietly radicalized me against the American aggression on their country.

      Little good it did me. Contract not renewed and a grand jury indictment for “Destruction of United States Government property” (worth a five and dime) (in a Fresno Resistance demo I ate my draft card with catsup on it).

      I chose to leave the country while my passport was still valid and eventually ended up in British Columbia, while the napalm manufacturers and heroin magnates just declared victory and waltzed away smiling at all the dough they had made from the event.

      The effect of all that protest was simply to postpone the inevitable (although I’ve been to Saigon – Ho Chi Minh City – several times in recent years and they admire all things American as much as they hate the Chinese).

      Deep State learned its lesson from that debacle and marshaled the patriot dopes for subsequent wars, while managing the media more cleverly.

      While there was undoubtedly a career boost for the likes of Joan Baez, most of our anti-VN war mates most likely ended up wondering whether the opposition and career sacrifice was worth the effort. That intellectual dilemma does not arise for this bunch of smash’n’grab “protestors” today, as they are either doped-up ghetto thugs or overeducated losers with no chance to realize an increasingly wonky “American dream” in any case.

      For the [English-speaking] Vietnamese I met and talked to, the American war on their country could have taken place hundreds of years ago. (Most were uninterested.) Ditto for the (largely dark-skinned) cannon fodder in the USA today. It was as though it was but a minor inconvenience for the empire staking its claim in East Asia.

      Those with a brain can see, however, that the Vietnam adventure, bombing of Cambodia and relentless Cold War bluff led to the slippery slope that the country is unhappily sliding down today.

    What the fuck is going on down there???
    Here in Canada we’re weathering the storm. Like many self employed I’m receiving $2000/month Covid relief. It’s been going on for 7 months now. About ten years ago I had a major stroke- 5 hours surgery with a neuro surgery team. Cost to me–NOTHING. Sure we have waiting list for knee surgeries but when it’s urgent you get care immediately. I guess we just feel that in a humane society everyone deserves free health care that we all pay for. We’re not alone in this. You guys are the exception within the developed nations. What does that make us?? Communists?? I’ve been feeling lately that you deserve what you’re getting.
    I don’t quite understand what our host is doing. I used to enjoy Jame’s witty commentaries about political events. Now I’m not sure what he’s doing.

    • Ishabaka August 28, 2020 at 11:03 am #

      Your surgery cost your NOTHING only if you never paid Canadian taxes in your life. Unfortunately, the Canadian government has convinced most of the population that medical care is “free”. I’m a dual American/Canadian citizen, and have lived, received medical care, and paid taxes in both nations. My American taxes are far, far lower than my Canadian taxes are. I actually favor a universal, government-run healthcare system similar to that of Canada, but don’t let the politicians delude you – it isn’t free.

      • Nightowl August 28, 2020 at 11:11 am #

        It might as well be free when you compare to the costs one encounters the US system.

        Here in Germany, I am privately insured, but had the public insurance for a short time. I prefer the options with private insurance, but it is far more expensive.

        Likewise, my comparatively high taxes also fund a retirement system that will actually pay me a useful amount of money when I take it out — even if I didn’t have a pension or savings.

        The US can be a great place to live in many respects, but healthcare and retirement are appalling.

        • tresho August 28, 2020 at 2:48 pm #

      Your governments put in place a healthcare system before Canada became a largely nonwhite country. The USA failed to do so back in the 1960s, except for Medicare. Medicare taxes poorer, younger, less-white people to cover medical care for white people, who are the vast majority of over-65 folks.

      Recall that one tax implemented to support Obamacare was a tax on tanning salons. So, whoever uses tanning salons was going to be taxed to support whoever used Obamacare.

      We lack the social capital to do this now. It was done in individual states, Like MA, when they were still majority white. Maybe VT and ND can pull it off now, since whites will both pay and receive. With the D’s ALL promising to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens, healthcare becomes a system to transfer assets from whites to others. It’s going to be a hard sell.

      The health of the people of the United States is at the mercy of Big Business. So too that of the people of Canada.

      Ten years ago you had a major stroke. I wonder why. Of course people age and the pipes give up, but what was your role in your own sickness? I wonder how you were counselled and what you believed about how you ate (for example) or the drugs you took before you were hit so very hard.

      I would wager that Big Ag, Big Pharma and finally Big Med had both you and the Canadian taxpayer on a string for decades. Especially considering that Canada has the 2nd highest pharmaceutical costs in the world,

      Sure the US system is brutally expensive. Sure it is a scam. But I can’t see how it could be to the advantage of US citizens to just introduce another scam system that just did a better job of hiding in government budgets the costs of crappy lifestyle choices. That is just more subsidies for big business and n actual misdirection from any true goal of health.

      The people of the USA are almost 40% obese. 34% of Canadians. Why should a healthy American pay for these waddling pigs to live even another day?

      Who would benefit from that? Big business.

      Let the fools and fatties pay. They made their choices.

      As to funding, Canada does not have sustainable health or retirement systems any more than the USA or anywhere else. Your surgery was paid for with money the government didn’t have. Stolen from the next generation. Canada’s debt in 2018/19 was 90% of GDP. This year with covid it will explode through that. There is no return from those levels of debt.

      Over time, that debt will be managed via financial repression, at best. That means high inflation with low interest rates. That is being announced at Jackson Hole in September. Got gold?

      I don’t know how old you are or how far until retirement, but if you are, say, ten years off, then you should plan to get nothing, or nothing of any value.

      As to comparing the United States and Canada on any issue, the USA has a minimum population of 40 million blacks, two million of them in prison and millions of the rest are career criminals and welfare dependents. It has 22 million illegals. All of them together make quite an anvil. Try swimming with that around your neck.

      The USA has an opiate problem that was deliberately created by the very pharmaceutical industry that you want to put permanently onto the national tax teat via so-called Healthcare. But that industry’s main historical task appears to have been to destroy the nation’s health through the massive over-prescription not just of opiates but of unnecessary and dangerous drugs such as cholesterol drugs and psychotropic drugs such as Adderall, not to mention a program of over-vaccination of the populace that prescribes a minimum of 78 vaccinations between birth and the age of 18.

      These are the criminals to whom you want to turn over how much, 25% of the annual tax take? Are you kidding?

      You have to have a better plan than that.

      At least one million of them are in prison at any one time and one in three black adult males is a felon. Many of them are career criminals and a massive proportion are welfare dependents, whether officially or not (People who cannot make a sandwich for their kids to take to school and their children depend on three school lunches a day are welfare dependents in my book). The USA today has 22 million illegals. All of these people together constitute quite an anvil. Try swimming with that around your neck.

That is a hell of a lot of ongoing insults to the developing immune systems.

      This is an anti “anti-vaxxer” website. Imagine, they think that this number of vaccines for children is accceptable. And as you must know, they plan for everyone to get many, many more.

      Quote

      Kids today do routinely get:

      -13 vaccines, including 5 doses of DTaP, 4 doses of IPV (polio), 3 or 4 doses of hepatitis B, 3 or 4 doses of Hib (the number of doses depends on the vaccine brand used), 4 doses of Prevnar, 2 or 3 doses of rotavirus (the number of doses depends on the vaccine brand used), 2 doses of MMR, 2 doses of Varivax (chicken pox), 2 doses of hepatitis A, 1 doses of Tdap, 2 or 3 doses of HPV (the number of doses depends on the age you start the vaccine series), 2 doses of MCV4 (meningococcal vaccine), and yearly influenza vaccines
      – protection against 16 vaccine-preventable diseases, including diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella, polio, chicken pox, pneumococcal disease, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, meningococcal disease, HPV, rotavirus, Hib, and flu
      about 28 doses of those vaccines by age two years (with yearly flu shots)
      – about
      35 doses of those vaccines by age five years (with yearly flu shots)
      – as few as 23 individual shots by age five years if your child is getting combination vaccines, like Pediarix or Pentacel and Kinrix or Quadracel and Proquad
      about 54 doses of those vaccines by age 18 years, with a third of that coming from yearly flu vaccines

    • neurodoc August 28, 2020 at 11:35 am #

      Also, will suburban women actually vote for a hair sniffing, pedophilic, corrupt and obviously demented biden; along with horizontal harris with whom it is widely known how she screwed her way to the top, locked up kids for a few joints while letting cartel members go free following ‘donations’ to her campaigns, and claims to be black when she’s Jamaican-Indian from a large, wealthy SLAVE owning family in Jamaica?

      Compartmentalized thinking is one thing; psychotic denial is yet another. A test of the mental state of suburban women is coming in November.

      Can’t even tell you how much head-shaking I did the last few days with all the game cancellations. Across ALL major sports. We could use some sense of normality here, so play your friggin’ game. Even then, the forced showings of solidarity with the social justice “movement” are nearly unbearable to watch when they do play a game these days, so maybe it’s for the best.

      I noticed the neighborhood baseballs diamonds near us have been recently weeded, raked, and bases put back in. Might have to take the boy to a real game soon there, as you suggest.

        The funniest part is that MLB has more or less been ‘taken over’ by Latino players from countries like Cuba, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Mexico. Hardly any black players left. You sure as hell wouldn’t see Luis Tiant sitting out a game despite racism he faced in his early career. Different sensibilities for different times, I guess.

        If all these protesters are seriously intent about having a ‘conversation’ about racism then everything has to be on the table when the discussion is opened up. Including Black on Black violence numbers, fatherless households, hip hop gansta culture, looting, burning, and especially why when the police stop you and ask you to stay put some people just resist because they either have a stash of drugs or guns they are trying to protect.
        Recommendation for you: A documentary was made about Luis Tiant called ‘The Lost Son of Havana’. Highly recommend it.

      Yes, the pros have over-played their hand big time. LeBron James actually considers himself smart. Maybe that kind of attitude is fine for him towards the end of his career, but what about all the other young Black men would follow him? Could he have had a career if they stopped playing every time a Black thug got shot?

      The Blacks have demonized Whites, encouraged and enabled to do so by self hating White academics and officials. They blame us unconsciously or even consciously for Blacks shooting other Blacks. This is the mayhem and the tragedy of the ghetto – not the White cops. There is simply nothing they hate more than introspection and humility. Everything has to be a slam dunk with these people. Nothing is there fault. All their problems are our fault. It’s a fearful thing to have to associate with people who think of us in this way. Why should we have to?

I am not sure what the thought process is when you run up on a person with a rifle even if you have a pistol. But then again, if you had any sense, you might not want to be in a middle of a riot in the first place.

    The Democrats have become the (Socialist Identity Party) and promise Progressivism, which they use as tactics (“The Carrot”), i.e. Bernie’s give away programs to further their evolving Marxist/Maoist ideology (“The Stick”). They then use Maoist methods (Cancel Culture) to erase America’s Customs, Culture, History, and Established Ideas in their strategy to destroy America’s current form of government based on the Founding Father’s Constitutional blueprint. Their ultimate goal is to install a Totalitarian government that starts out as a form of corrupt and unworkable Socialism.

    America endured 8 years of Obama’s political assault and failed coup (RussiaGate) to overthrow a duly elected President. Normal Americans are starting to understand how the Obama administration weaponized the DOJ, FBI, CIA and IRS to go after his political opponents, and in doing so, he trampled the Constitution and fueled the violent overthrow of cultural norms. America, in her glorious history, has never experienced anything in politics as corrupt as Obama’s RussiaGate. Nixon’s WaterGate political crimes look like an overdue library book by comparison.

And google & Apple have told their employees they could work remotely maybe until the end of 2021.

    It’s the same polemic iteration we evidenced in 1968, Jim. Bad man Nixon had to go too, and he did. There is no difference between the Watts Riots and contemporary rioting other than the fact that it has proliferated under Trump and The Swamp Creatures from Hell currently occupying the administration.

    Nixon was a dumb arse too, eh.

    And running the union into recessionary headwinds was Trump’s undoing here so I don’t understand how you can deflect blame off onto the governance in waiting Democratic Party unless you are blindly partisan.

    P.S. I hate it when you get you knickers in a knot, Jim. The Republicans are as incompetent to lead as Nixon’s administration was. The world is moving away from Trump’s debacles de jour.

    Here is my take. The Democrats could not afford not to run someone from the old guard, because a fresh candidate might not be trusted to keep a lid on everything they’ve done, long enough to accrue enough voters who can’t remember.

    Witness the elderly, fossilized has-beens and never-wases hanging on for life, well past retirement age. Witness what happened in 2016 with Bernie Sanders. Something motivated him to primary Hillary Clinton. If all was well within the party, he never would have felt the need to do so.

    Bernie had the support of a lot of young people, who knew something was wrong but did not know that Bernie’s old tired ideas were not going to fix anything.
    What did get fixed was the election, against Bernie. Bernie strangely enough did not get angry, he had sold out by then.

    The point is, even old relic Bernie who possibly could have won, was too much of a thread to the old guard. He might have objected to the spying on citizen and so forth that a new president would learn about.
    He had to go.

    This time around, the most viable candidate, who fit the Democrats’ parameters on paper, was Tulsi Gabbard.
    They rigged things against her. Keeping the lid on their crimes was too important.

    Biden was a place holder who would safely be exchanged for the real candidate, once all the others were neutralized, and more important, no one had time to do a thorough check on the new guy’s baggage before the vote.

    Understand that the new guy HAD TO have baggage.
    Just as Barack and Hillary each had dirt on the other, tons of it, any new candidate had to have so much dirt that he could be trusted not to turn on any of the others, and to keep all their good for them bad for us financial rackets going.

    I maintain and have always maintained that the new guy was to be Andrew Cuomo. In fact, the reason you have all heard of this theory by now is very likely due to the fact that I was doing my level best to warn of this all over the place. Not exactly Sybil Ludington, but hey.

    Andrew was going to strut his stuff with this ginned up state of emergency (long emergency) surrounding the pandemic.
    Unfortunately, he and a few others miscalculated when they caused several thousand premature deaths, whether by design or extreme stupidity. Andrew did not realize that some would take umbrage at this.

    Right now the media is working hard to lay blame on President Trump for simultaneously not supplying enough ventilators, and for wasting money on unnecessary generators. They can’t both be true.

    Andrew didn’t blame as many others for his failures as Hillary. I suppose that is something. He did however declare himself investigated enough. He doesn’t want to answer any more questions as to why he did what he did.

    If it were me, I think I’d welcome the opportunity to clear things up.

    So, the Dems have a dilemma by the horns. THat’s an awful lot of cheating via mail-in voting they are going to have to do. Can they pull it off?

    Andrew Cuomo already did a trial run in NY, with a sudden mail-in school board election. Any of us who had objections, or were suspicious of the unusual results, didn’t have anywhere to register our complaints. Closures due to the scamdemic, you see.

    This social distance and mask nonsense serves to keep any of us pesky patriots from getting together to compare our experiences.
    The government is literally ordering us not to assemble before an election.

    The different story that events themselves are telling voters is that young Americans act like savages when given the green light by politicians who refuse to enforce the laws against public violence, theft, and the destruction of property, and who justify all that with a fabricated narrative about systemic racism.

    JHK, you know this is wrong. You’ve already written the book on it. To paraphrase from memory, the US government subsidized the building of suburbia post-WW2 because they were freaked out about what would happen if mass unemployment returned. That system worked while we had cheap oil to fund the cars driving to and fro. We had a wobble in 1973, resumption of the model at a lower level from the 80s to the 00s, and final collapse of the model in 2008 when oil got SO expensive that gas costs ate up the savings from driving 60 miles each way to work.

    Simply put, we have continued to build an economy where no meaningful work or chance at advancement exists for people with an IQ below, say, 95.

    The three white (not black looters) people shot in Kenosha illustrate this. Morally deficient, probably not too smart, and with criminal records or encounters for all of them. As felons, they cannot work, they cannot rehabilitate, they are essentially consigned to the ash heap of the modern economy.

    I am sure the only people who WOULD pay them are AntiFa, so that some useful idiots could take a bullet for the cause.

    But we have had over 30million people made redundant while the stock market has marched to all time highs, and Jeff Bezos has become the first-ever 200billionaire. The system offers nothing to those 30million, most of whom aren’t criminals like the looters and the 3 shot in Kenosha…. yet.

    Bottom line: we overreacted to a mildly lethal virus and sacrificed the economic and social well being of young people, in theory to save the lives of older, richer people (which we didn’t even accomplish). The society offers them nothing.

    In a world made by hand, their youth and energy Will be paramount, not the ability to manipulate digits on a screen. You and I might see the downside in a world made by hand, but to them it has to look more and more like upside. Once that critical point is reached… well, I hope you’ll be a revered dead prophet instead of having to live through it.

    • Sredni Vashtar August 28, 2020 at 1:09 pm #

      You’re not trying to excuse Blacks again, are you? They did most of the looting and burning in Kenosha. The Antifa were there in a more serious, political capacity. Evidently BLM isn’t strong in that part of the country I assume. In any case, Antifa got there first.

      The Globalists shut America down for weeks and then sprang the trap of racial grievance. Idle youth of both races jumped at the chance to have fun destroying things and looting – all for a good cause. And the BLM and Antifa cadres were in place as well. None of this is coincidental.

      If you consider Blacks equal, you have to hold them equally responsible. Not to do so negates your ideology because it denies them moral agency. Even I don’t do that.

        I’m not black, so I don’t really understand what that’s like, Janos. You might note that I called looters criminals, not as a moral judgment but a statement of fact.

        I worry a lot about the “idle youth.” They’re idle because we have designed an economy and social system that makes it impossible for them to live a bourgeois life. It was obvious to see this problem amongst blacks, with high unemployment and a large portion not part of the employable sector because of criminal activity.

        It’s perhaps unsurprising that there are now plenty of whites in the same position. But I would insist that they don’t do the violence for fun, but rather out of a genuine desire to overturn the system, that offers them nothing.

        We don’t get out of this, especially with 30+million now also cut out of things, without either a) killing them off, or b) dealing them in. You can survive a criminal black underclass disaffected from society. We already have for 50+ years. We won’t survive a criminal white underclass, disaffected from society.

      The flip side will be as the slightly younger, decidedly less wealthy old people now age and need care in the future it will not be there, as the youth of today will be justifiably tired of carrying our load altogether. Some very interesting times just ahead for today’s 50-70 year old cohort. I always said suicide and euthanasia would eventually be a growth industry. Suicide by other means via all the usual culprits already is.

        I expect SS to get cut off. That’s what the D talk of systemic racism means. Older whites must have empowered it, or put it in place, or benefited from it. Therefore they get NOTHING.

        The demographics of SS recipients reflect America 65 years ago: 90+% white. The demographics of SS “contributors” proceed inexorably towards 50+% nonwhite. Why anyone thinks they’ll pay in to support a bunch of old whites not related to them is beyond,me.

    Meanwhile, the leftist gaslighting of America continues apace. The rioting, looting and mayhem is based on a lie, but you won’t see any of this in the New York Times:

    1) George Floyd was a dead man walking. It turns out that he had twice the normal lethal dose of fentanyl in his system. This was known in June, but was withheld by prosecutors.
    https://spectator.org/minnesota-v-derek-chauvin-et-al-the-prosecutions-dirty-little-secret/

    2) It turns out that Breonna Taylor was involved with her drug dealer ex-boyfriend. She was receiving packages for him in her home , and according to a jailhouse recording of the ex-boyfriend, she was intimately involved with his business. It also explaines her current boyfriends firing on the police as they entered.
    https://www.wave3.com/2020/08/26/warrants-issued-arrest-breonna-taylors-ex-boyfriend-amid-leaked-new-documents/

    3)Jacob Blake was in the process of retrieving a knife from his car when he was shot

    The symbolism of last nights speech is the most beautiful I have ever seen. The Republican Elite – the real ones, the nationalists – sat there in person in front of the White House, real people with hardly a mask in sight. They know the whole pandemic thing is mostly a scam and the mask mandate just a horrible prequel of what’s to come in Biden’s America. And by sitting there unmasked on camera they were sharing that realization with the rest of America.

    If this keeps up, I might not just vote for Trump, but actually become a Republican.

    One of the worst things that could happen to the young people is to graduate from college during the economic downturn.In the book “Only Yesterday” by Frederick Lewis Allen there is a list of Harvard Class of 1932:
    ……….
    John Smith-never heard from again
    David Tyler-works for CCC
    Peter Bridewell-on a dole
    Net Benton-arrested in Wyoming for riding trains
    ……….

    I felt sad for those guys who lived 90 years ago

    Class of 1982 suffered a lot.
    Class of 2008 fared even worse.
    Class of 2000-let me remain silent on this subject

    Maybe today’s rioters will be able to put on their resume “Ford Foundation Diversity Officer intern” provided they stay out of trouble.

        There is an old joke from inflationary 1919:

Privilege is having a Smartphone with a Data plan which you receive no bill for. Privilege is living in public subsidized housing where you don’t have a utility bill and where rising property taxes and rents and energy costs have absolutely no effect on you or the amount of food you can put on your table. Privilege is having free health insurance for you and your family that’s paid for by working people who can’t afford health insurance for their families. Privilege is having multiple national organizations promoting and protecting your race that’s subsidized by federal tax dollars. Privilege is having access to a national college fund that supports only your race. Privilege is having a television network that supports only your race. Privilege is the ability to go march against, and protest against anything that triggers you, without worrying about calling out off work and the consequences that accompany such. Privilege is having as many children as you want, regardless of your employment status, and be able to send them off to daycare or school you don’t pay for. Privilege is having most of your life paid for by the people who DO HAVE TO DEAL WITH RISING TAXES AND COSTS!…you know, us so called “PRIVILEGED” ones who pay while you TAKE TAKE AND TAKE.

          It yielded close to a full cup of beans this year.
          I have about enough beans from the last three years to make about a pot of coffee.
          I am told if you store the beans in the green bean state they will last.
          I made a small cup from beans I grew and roasted and it was the naturally sweet all on its own far and away the best cup of joe I have ever had.
          Al the beans were bright deep red and sweet when picked.

    “The Democratic Party ought to worry that the voters are onto their game, because it looks like they’ve completely blown it…”
    .
    No particular political party is ordained by The Most High to even exist. These political groupings are just legal fictions that attract self-seeking, power-mad sociopaths, narcissists, and a good percentage of sexually adventurous types that aren’t big on the keeping-of-vows department but who are great at getting into your billfold. Often.
    .
    When any collective group of humans runs off the rails it is because they have become blind and unaware of their own depravity and moral and ethical bankruptcy. They have become isolated and insulated in a feedback loop of false self-righteousness and vicious judgmentalism of anyone or anything that opposes or differs from them.

    “…in Washington DC while Mr. Trump delivered his remarks at the White House.”
    .
    Since Trump believes that it is perfectly OK to use the White House for personal political gain, why doesn’t he just hand out samples of White House china and cutlery and give away rose plants from the Rose Garden while he’s at it? And should he lose, will he be willing to move out or demand to keep his bedroom and stuff right where it is?

          =========

          Until my freshman year of college I never knew there was such a thing as alliteration. Then poetry professor, Dr George pointed out the following:

          THE LADY OF THE LAKE. XXXI. A various scene the clansmen made: Some sat, some stood, some slowly strayed; But most, with mantles folded round, Were couched to rest upon the ground, Scarce to be known by curious eye From the deep heather where they lie, So well was matched the tartan screen With heath-bell dark and brackens green; Unless where, here and there, a blade Or lances point a glimmer made, Like glow-worm twinkling through the shade. But when, advancing through the gloom, They saw the Chieftains eagle plume, Their shout of welcome, shrill and wide. Shook the steep mountains steady side. Thrice it arose, and lake and fell Three times returned the martial yell; It died upon Bochastles plain, And Silence claimed her evening reign.

          • tucsonspur August 29, 2020 at 4:38 am #

            It’s wonderful and amazing. I just found out that Ellen Douglas was the Lady. How Scotland, how the world must have been a couple of hundred years ago! Makes you wonder where we are going.

    I don’t see how Biden can be replaced with a snap of the fingers just because the Dems may have lost their taste for him. They would have to produce some hard medical evidence that he can’t serve. And even then, wouldn’t the delegates in that case go to the second-place guy, Bernie? Doesn’t seem right that they can simply gift the delegates to whomever they wish, especially if that individual did not contest the primaries.

    But I suppose anything goes nowadays . . .

  48. drewkeeling August 28, 2020 at 6:45 pm #

    Not that he was the best overall choice, nor that it was really a fair and open contest, especially after corona hit, but Biden did get a majority of the delegates at the convention. Only barely, like Trump in 2016, but it would be unprecedented in US history for a nominated major party candidate to be ousted after the convention.

    The Democratic Party campaign strategy, if there is one at all, appears to be oriented more towards replaying the past than trying anything very new and different. America tried new and different four years ago, and it hasn’t worked out very well.

    Instead, the DNC approach this time seems to be one based around caretaker rule: Taking care of a past-prime presiding president, relying on caretaker cabinet members, and hoping for a Democratic Party majority in the Congress. This game plan stands a reasonable chance of success at the November ballot box, if there aren’t too many further Kenoshas between now and then. Whether it will work for four years after election day is more questionable.

    • tucsonspur August 28, 2020 at 8:12 pm #

      It seems absurd, but Biden could win. More and more Republicans are with him. A quiet, almost meek and humble campaign, in contrast to Trump could do it, as the Kenoshas quiet down.

      If there are debates and Biden holds his own and shows some fire, it’s game on. Comparing numbers to other countries, etc., Biden would kill Trump on the covid. The big play now is CYA on the covid.

The radar in Lake Charles was down the night it hit because of the evacuation so they couldn’t exactly tell right where the eye went for sure. It threw the weather channel people off. They kept wondering when the eyewall was going to pass but it didn’t get to them and the Houston radar made them think they were going to see it. They were staying at the Golden Nugget.

    Hmm. This Jacob Blake chap, turns out he wasn’t an Eagle Scout after all. Police were called to the scene when he showed up at a former girlfriend’s house, violating a restraining order, whom, apparently, he used to beat regularly. The cops have been called there before. So then he proceeded to “penetrate her with a foreign object”. (this sounds even worse than George Floyd — St George — holding a .38 on a pregnant women’s stomach while his posse looted her house) A lot of other stuff happened too, resulting in him getting himself shot. Toxicology report not in yet, that’ll be telling (and in the St George case getting the officers exonerated).

    Well, it appears more than likely that Biden’s state of ‘suspended animation’ is of a rather permanent nature, so it probably isn’t that.

    Maybe it’s the duration of the flagitious fog that has enveloped the Democrats for years, and seems unable to dissipate.

    Maybe it’s just the duration until some deus ex machina makes its desired appearance.

    Rockets fired at site of A-plant in France

    “Five rockets slammed into a controversial nuclear power station being built near here Monday night. The rockets were fired from the opposite bank of the Rhone River and smashed into the 80-yard concrete walls which will hold the fast-breeder reactor’s core. Police said a Soviet Army antitank missile launcher was used in the attack.”

    https://www.csmonitor.com/1982/0120/012011.html

    How did it end ?

    “Police said an anonymous caller claimed responsibility for the attack on the Creys-Malville site a short time later in the name of a ”Pacifist and Ecological Committee.”

    And that was the end of it.Nobody was caught,much less charged…

    Probably it was a “peaceful RPG-7 missile launch”

    Jacob Blake’s charges relate at least to rape (entering a home!) and car theft, according to various media outlets. This comes from Zerohedge today:

    “In May, Blake was accused of unlawfully entering a home and sexually assaulting a woman in her bedroom before leaving with her vehicle, CNN reported, citing a criminal complaint it obtained,” The Hill notes of the vacated prior warrant.

        In reply to that, the role of grassroots social media in providing an alternative narrative – a rebuttal – to all of this dismal down-talking and demoralization of America and the West has been huge.

        The big example can be seen in the example of this kid, Rittenhouse, his bravery, their attempt to railroad him, and the way that people are rallying around him. Social media matters hugely.

        The number one nightmare of the Dems is when the lies of the MSM become obvious to the American people. A funny reaction is happening right now as after the acceptance speech was given, people realized that a large majority of his accomplishments were not reported by the media over the four years. My hope is that the media is discovered to be the scalawags they are and their deception and lies lead directly to a Trump victory.

        My own opinion is that the last four years of this country’s history is one big media generated lie and that Trump may emerge as the Swamp busting champion he promised. Anything to destroy the hold the Democratic Party has on this country today. And fellow Trumpers, we better find his successor or his hard won advances will be ground up by the evil that is the Democratic Party.

    On the issue of Trump’s achievements, as just one example, here is how Zerohedge reports on the Gate’s plan to scatter nuclear power stations across the north-west. (Masked Portland anarchists, “Yay for Bill Gates!”)

    https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/bill-gates-next-project-building-nuclear-power-plants-across-pacific-northwest

    After President Trump scrapped a plan to build these advanced power plants in and around Beijing, Gate’s TerraPower was forced to shift its focus back to the US, according to Reuters.

    Gates had initially hoped to build an experimental nuclear plant near Beijing with state-owned China National Nuclear Corp. But last year, TerraPower was forced to seek new partners after the Trump administration restricted nuclear deals with China.

    So, it seems that it is possible to prevent all of the dishes on the economic Lazy Susan from being monopolized by China.

    There Is No Peace by Gregory Hood, American Renaissance

    “Gentlemen may cry, peace, peace — but there is no peace. The war is actually begun!” – Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775.

    We aren’t in Patrick Henry’s situation yet, but we aren’t far off. Unless President Donald Trump can restore order, we face a violent future. I doubt it will be “civil war,” but it may be a permanent crisis, and there will be countless victims.

    Patrick Henry before the House of Burgesses in Williamsburg, Virginia.

    Earlier this week, a black man killed himself in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He was a murder suspect who shot himself in the head. We can watch the video.

    When there’s a gunshot and a body, police respond. This doesn’t mean that the police killed someone. Nonetheless, some blacks began screaming “y’all shot him,” and this falsehood quickly spread.

    Blacks rioted. They damaged more than 40 buildings and smashed or looted bars, restaurants, chain stores, and a mall. Police arrested 132 people. Disgusted storeowners and residents told journalists the next day that they were leaving the area.

    While the governor and mayor said they opposed violence, both indulged the mob. Minnesota governor Tim Walz, who has previously claimed “white supremacists” were partially responsibly for riots in Minnesota, said that the “pain that people are feeling is real.” Minneapolis mayor Jacob Frey, who has also blamed “white supremacists” for previous violence, also groveled: “We recognize that none of this happens in a vacuum. And it is righteous to vent that pain in anguish in the form of peaceful protest.”

    The National Guard and state police kept order the next night, but a “well-known group of community members known as MAD DADS” also helped. The group was founded by black men to help law enforcement fight crime, though it is supposedly multiracial now. Members reportedly served as “middlemen” between law enforcement and rioters, and state police were reportedly “lenient on arrests.” In other words, police had to rely on outside groups to protect citizens, because if they did it directly, they might have faced more violence.The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported that many residents thought police were “lying” about the suicide. If the disturbing video had not been released, there would have been far worse rioting.

    I draw two major conclusions. First, whites’ lack of racial consciousness makes us weak. Few feel our “pain” or think it’s “real.” It’s just “white fragility.” No mostly white groups patrol alongside law enforcement as “middlemen.” When police shoot a white man or blacks kill a white victim, it’s just an isolated case. When police shoot a black man — under any circumstances — it means potential riots. If a white person kills a black person — under any circumstances — it’s a potential national story.

    This leads to the second conclusion. We are in a permanent crisis. Journalists, professors, politicians, and activists tell blacks that “white privilege” causes violence. Since all groups are equal, what but “racism” could explain blacks’ problems? The white privilege conspiracy theory incites hatred and violence. Worse, the more irrationally blacks behave, the more benefits they get. Even in this case, the governor and mayor sounded almost apologetic about opposing riots based on false reports.

    In a racially integrated country with so many people, it’s inevitable that police will occasionally shoot or harm a black person, especially when blacks commit so many crimes. Today, every case means a potential riot and innocent victims. Even when no one is killed, it doesn’t mean citizens don’t suffer. The looting finishes off small businesses already hit by the pandemic. The biggest beneficiary is Amazon, which takes over even more sales. Worse, when those like Kyle Rittenhouse, the Proud Boys, or the Rise Against Movement act to restore order, the state suddenly acts with great force against them.

    We can’t live like this, shackled to a powder keg, waiting for the next thug to light the match. We deserve more than obvious double standards and the ever-present threat of violence. Whites won’t tolerate this forever. The repression we face is far more sweeping and arbitrary than anything our ancestors faced under George III.

    If we must live in a multiracial democracy, the rule of law must apply equally. The state must dispense justice without regard to ideology. If it can’t or won’t, the social contract is broken. In that case, European-Americans have the right and duty to demand a homeland where we can live in peace. The choice is being forced on us, whether we want it or not.

    SV: We have to give them more, much more, or they accuse us of giving them less. And they still blow it. They were bought off in the 60’s to help end the unrest. But now they’re back and they want even more – including the right to commit crimes without consequence apparently. We have no more to give them – certainly not that, or the right to attack Whites at whim either.

    Liberals scream, If we’re equal, why do they do so poorly? It’s structural racism! But we’re not equal and trying to make us equal has resulted in the acceptance of structural racism against Whites, in favor of Blacks, then Browns, then Black and Brown immigrants too!

    Btw, every indication is that Martin Luther King would have been in favor of all of this. He wanted equity not equal rights. Color trumping character at every turn. Race as the arbiter of everything since Whites fell for the ruse. And that’s all it ever was, volks.

        I certainly did, benr, but you clearly didn’t.

        Just having a continuously unspooling string of lickspittles (your favourite kind of toady!) stand up and state, with apparent belief, the precise opposite of reality with regard to President DimDon & his fantastic ‘achievements’, is so blindingly FAKE NEWS, I can’t believe you suck this up.

        And then the Conspiracy Theorist-in-Chief stood on his hind legs (while leaning on the podium like a drunk father at his oldest daughter’s wedding) and spewed forth a 5th-grade report on American History in the most boring monotone ever – it was mindnumbing. Oh, if only he’d gone off-script and done his ‘Top Ten”…that would have been a hoot!

        Then, Skorenzy said that he was ‘spreading the truth!’ He seriously SAID that. Go figure.

        President DimDon has two particular phobias: powerful men and intelligent women. This is seen regularly – arse-kissing Putin, Kim Jong Un, Erdogan and the like, and in name-calling any woman who speaks up against him and his bullshit.

        This is a man who seeks the vote of the ‘working man’ yet who routinely refused to pay working people their due wages, and then lawyered them into the ground when they objected to being exploited. Trump is a rich downtown bully, the sort most working men usually hate. So, the old GOP strategy of getting you to vote against your own interests still reigns supreme, and you, benr, are the most scintillating example hereabouts.

    People here may agree that, broadly understood, a contract usually entails that one side of the agreement will undertake to perform or not perform some action while the other side of the agreement will in exchange provide some consideration or also be bound to perform or not perform some stipulated actions.

    I mention this because a guest on Tucker on Friday brought up Ice Cube’s “Contract with Black America”, which that was the first I had heard of such a thing. Curious indeed as to what would be provided on either side of said bargain, I looked it up.

    Imagine my surprise at finding that the Black Contract With America is in fact just a wish-list of phenomenally expensive gibs and political advantages that whitey will provide while getting nothing in return but more vituperation and slander.

    While the gibs that whitey would provide under the contract are stupendous, there is no promise to lower the black share of the murder rate from 55% to say, just 20%. Or to get black on white rape down to just 50 a day nationally from the current one hundred. Or to get the black HIV rate down from 40% of all cases. Or for a strong effort to get the black illegitimacy rate down from the current 75% to, say, the same level as hispanics, 49%. Or even to stop black children assaulting teachers in the classroom.

    The closest to an undertaking to provide anything in return can be found at Point 13. Prepare to be unsurprised.

    Here is the full text of the list.

    1. Bill to Guarantee Black Opportunity and Representation.
    Adopt a plan of “Neo-Reconstruction” to redress past wrongs systematically imposed on Black Americans economically throughout many generations that has resulted in a “wealth gap” where the average White family has 10x the wealth of a Black Family. In addition to some of the economic initiatives listed below, also formally apologize to Black Americans for past discrimination and slavery.

    Additionally Black opportunity and representation will include: Affirmative Action in schools public and private; per student funding in states on an equal basis instead of paid by local property taxes; Black representation on all government civil rights bodies; civil rights classes mandatory in elementary schools; Gerrymandering reform; additional polling places in Black and minority neighborhoods; Juneteenth to become a Federal holiday.

    2. Bank Lending Reform.
    Bank lending will be regulated to require banks to lend a percentage of all loan and credit categories on an equal basis to the Black population each Bank serves.

    However, the minimum threshold must yearly meet the percentage equal to the national Black population (currently approximately 13.4%). Rates on Black loans federally and from banks to be same average rates as Whites.

    3. Federal Funding of “Baby Bonds”.
    Pass federal program providing every child with a government funded trust account at birth starting with a $1,000 contribution. As proposed by Senator Booker and Representative Pressley, accounts to be managed by the Treasury and only those born into lower-wealth families would receive more contributions each year up to $46,500 total.

    At age 18 access to the funds allowed but use restricted to asset enhancing actions such as buying homes, starting businesses [buying rims – ed] and funding education.

    4. Federal Reserve and Government Pensions.
    For qualified Black Americans, Federal Reserve to allow a one-time interest free loan for home ownership. The Fed to ensure Banks and institutions it oversees comply with Bank Lending Reform.

    Fed to adopt Modern Monetary Theory with goal of Full Employment and avoidance of Actual Inflation.

    Federal and State pension funds control over a trillion dollars. They must allocate 13.4% of their investments into Black owned enterprises and businesses.

    Venture Capital and Private Equity funds that take money public entities must invest 13.4% of their total funds in Black owned businesses.

    5. Finance Oversight.
    A Banking Commission (or even a Cabinet or Sub-Cabinet post) will be set up to overlook and report on Black and minority lending, housing ownership and mortgages, and enforcement of items 2 and 3 above. Such authority will also oversee and audit federal programs such as Economic Opportunity Zones and Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) to determine who is benefiting from disbursement of such funds. Will provide for a transparent reporting mechanism for abuses to economic programs designed to benefit communities in need.

    6. Personal Data and Credit.
    Most states publicly release bulk data about arrestees unchecked. Like the 1970 Fair Credit Reporting Act regarding credit data, there must be guidelines regarding arrest records that allow similar privacy and accuracy protections and the right to dispute and correct inaccurate data. Credit services will be reformed to mandate consideration of individual consumer data on rent, utility, cellphone, and other like bill payments.

    7. Prison Reform.
    Privately run prisons will be abolished, prison labor disallowed without consent, and nonviolent offenders incarcerated for 10 years or longer will be freed if good behavior standards met. All prisoners for marijuana possession freed. First offense for illegal drug use or possession to require government payment for entry into an approved drug rehabilitation program rather than imprisonment. Once any prisoner completes sentence, voting rights are restored.

    8. Judicial Reforms.
    Eliminate mandatory minimums and three strike laws. The Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice reformed through stricter guidelines and greater oversight over police departments. DOJ can be sued for non-compliance. Lynching to become a federal hate crime and the Ku Klux Klan declared a terrorist organization.

    9. Police Reform Act.
    Police reforms will be implemented in an expansive act that will at minimum include: Elimination of Qualified Immunity; requirement of mandatory malpractice insurance for police officers; make municipalities liable for unconstitutional actions by police; mandatory use of dashboard and body cams; elimination of chokeholds and “no-knock” warrants; establishment of residency requirements, de-escalation training, and requirement to update training; severe penalties for evidence tampering including withholding DNA. A federal database of police and disciplinary records established and made public and once fired for cause cannot be rehired. Creation of Office of Independent Prosecutors to solely focus on prosecuting police accused of wrongdoing. Other reforms as listed in greater detail in the Contract with Black America.

    10. FCC Licensing of public airwaves.
    Broadcast networks will be required to air Black produced content equal to 20% of the total content on the network as measured by time.

    11. Confederate Monuments and Institutions.
    Elimination of all Confederate statues and uses or displays of Confederate flags on government grounds or property with public access. Rename all streets, schools, public structures, etc. named after Confederate soldiers or leaders. A memorial will be built in Washington D.C. to victims of police excessive force.

    12. AJP Program for Education and Jobs.
    Adoption of AJP, A Public/Private program that provides access to jobs and education and/or training for people willing to put in the work and commitment.

    13. Black Responsibility.
    Chronic poverty creates an atmosphere full of negativity, frustration, hopelessness, depression, alcoholism, drug abuse, crime, and violence. These are some of conditions that plague the Black Community which is dealing with extreme generational poverty. As we begin to gain social and economic equality it is our duty to clean up ourselves and our community. This contract is a 2-way street. As we gain social and economic equality, we must begin to dissolve any bitterness in our hearts for past wrongs. We must become better citizens who are more productive on all levels of American society. We really must step up after we pass the Contract with Black America with no more excuses left in the kiddie. Our entertainers should be persuaded to deliver more positive content that leads our youth to make better choices in life. A new pride must develop with these new opportunities and we must fight against negativity, frustration, hopelessness, depression, alcoholism, drug abuse, crime, and violence.

      #3. The Black community has earned none of this, none. This is just another gimme program giving an excuse to the Black community that they can be irresponsible for another hundred years. All excuses not to assimilate into the general public we’re done away with in the 1960’s. The lack of will of the Black community to pursue economic goals is not the fault of any White interference, just Black indifference. Blacks hate their own that do not follow their gimme creed and succeed in America. Trump’s parade of successful Blacks is rubbing salt into a cavernous wound that is Blackish America.

    Not that it gives any comfort for it shows the collective ability of people to lie to themselves, but who really believes that the current festivities in all those cities is really about Black lives mattering, especially as most of the rioters are White? 

    Do you think that Black lives matter to those White kids acting out and busting things up? Do you think that Black lives matter, or EVER mattered, to the legions of legislators that manned those august chambers all through US history including the present day, or to the state governors or city mayors, or state assemblymen who act as if they really give a shit about Black people? They don’t because if anybody in power ever gave a damn, it sure isn’t evident in the conditions that Blacks live in considering that for a good forty years, things have been getting worse for them. 

    And it’s been getting worse for most Whites, for who really believes this notion that wages have “stagnated” since the 1970s? They haven’t “stagnated”, they’ve plummeted, California construction workers being one example, for in the 1970s construction work provided a living wage. No more though. 

    Which is what all this violence is really about, the severe compression of life prospects for ordinary citizens. The only lives that matter are those of the thin upper crust, typically college educated, that comprise either the Donor Class or those in the managerial clerisy that minister to Donor Class needs and interests. 

    But times they are a changin’, people are onto the con, Republican voters twice nominating for the presidency a non-Republican if I ever saw one, and one that doesn’t abide by the usual Republican nostrums, people in Democrat states taking to the streets in nightly rock pitching competitions. I wonder if those in power recognize the peril that’s brewing. There’s a saying in Old Blighty, before you enter the yellow box make sure your exit is clear.

      Re the college con, it’s sad to see that the main outcome of the school results/university places fiasco here this summer has been to increase the numbers of UK students going to university over previous years, so more debt, more waste of time, and more people with a degree stacking shelves in Sainsbury’s or serving fancy coffees.

      Not the fault of the universities, though, in this case – they’re just figuring out how on earth to manage the unexpected bigger numbers, especially now.

      Back in the days when only 10% of school leavers went to university, there was no shame in being part of the other 90%. Now 50% of the young population are desperately trying to prove they’re not stupid, except that’s not really what they’re proving.

      I’ve been saying this since the 70s.

        Not the fault of the universities-

        Oh yes it is. The universities have been hiring gimme do nothing academicians for two generations now. These are folks whose goal in life is to achieve tenure so they do not have to compete any more. The fact that these wastes-of-a-body educate our children has just about destroyed the integrity of this country. I will bet it has done a number on Scotland too.

            And I don’t believe in throwing the baby out with the bathwater. My younger daughter’s degree helped her get a job, as mine did me.

            And my older brother worked hard all his life as a lecturer at UMIST (University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology). He spent the first half of his lecturing career teaching computer science, without having done a degree in it at all (his first degree was in Philosophy and Sociology, and his Master’s was in Linguistics). He was self-taught in computer science at a time when degrees in it didn’t really exist. Then he moved into Computational Linguistics. He didn’t spent any of his time sitting on his arse. And when they ‘restructured’ he was dumped like an old computer, but thankfully around retirement age.

            Musk could easily take his money and move to a private island, instead he’s out here trying to do Big Things. And far be it from me to argue with success.

            America used to be full of guys like Elon Musk; George Westinghhouse, Edison, Arthur Savage, the Dodge brothers, the Wrights, Henry Ford, Christian Sharpes, just a few amongst thousands.

      One person of authority in this country seems to understand that economic opportunity is the only thing that will float all boats. He does not belong to either of the elitist parties, but has created his own. All you RINOs better find a niche in the Democratic Party because you are no longer wanted in the Trump GOP. Your wounded egos are crap. If you do not participate in the post Trump talent pool, then go find somewhere else to live where sour grapes are a delicacy.

      • Kevvia Knack August 29, 2020 at 1:53 pm #

        Agree. Trump is far from perfect but he is the closest thing we’ve got to an anti-globalist, and, yes, he is a pragmatist. As you wrote, he seems to understand that economic opportunity is the only thing that will float all boats. All “equality” begins with the ability to support oneself. Black crime, White despair, they both stem from the inability of individuals to support themselves financially. I would hardly call Trump “peak oil aware” but his desire to establish a more meritocratic immigration system and his plans to reinvigorate American manufacturing certainly jibe with my belief that the nation needs to become more localized and protective. And screw the media—-Trump’s acceptance speech was spot on (not all of it, I mean, is it really necessary that human beings go to Mars?) but all the NBC commentators could do afterward was bitch bitch bitch. The White House looked beautiful and the fireworks were spectacular. At least compliment the guy for putting on a good show.

Some talk of advances in satellites and digital imaging. The main “benefit” appears to be “an exhalation if the human spirit” the price of which is “incalculable” ——so I’m still not convinced.

        Only a few people can become millionaires. Countless lives are embittered by this ruthless, soulless, futile quest.

        Real opportunity means a living wage for all. Socialism? You bet. Otherwise the upper class will work together to make us all peasants – as it has been doing for generations. Not having to compete with even more desperate peasants from other countries would be nice. But it’s not the whole problem.

          Note: We could also call it “Patriotic Capitalism”. Does that help? It won’t fool the Elite of course. Capitalism by its very nature is traitorous in its later, corporate, globalist stage. To restrain that, a strong government is needed, one not controlled by the Capitalists, one that controls them. The greedy swine have to be forced to be good! Maybe after a few generations it will be natural for Corporate Executives to be loyal. Once we control the education system. But we must never relax our vigilance. This kind of man is naturally obsessed with profit before all. He will easily relapse even if well raised.

    Seeing the thread on the sad state of today’s college/university systems reminds me of that great old movie from the 80’s, “The Paper Chase” with the late British actor John Housman as crusty old professor Kingsley. Long before wokesterism took over.

    Houseman made a great career as an adman, too. I remember a pitch he did for investment firm Smith Barney (does it still exist?) “Our clients make money the old-fashioned way…they EAAAAARN it.” What a concept!

    https://treadathletics.com/dominican-domination/

    For Q and Snag

    This is a good article that agrees with your racial supremacism in part though he gives primacy to the social factors. Of Latinos in American baseball, Dominicans dominate. And they produce far more players per capita than America does. Why? Because they want it more than Americans. It gets them out of poverty, etc. And why more than other Latinos? Because of race. The Black physique is superior to that of Mestizos and Whites. And the Dominican republic is largely Mulatto or mixed Black/White.

    What can I say? There may be truth here. They certainly dominate many sports. The financial factor is not hereby cancelled however. As to how much weight to give each factor, I can’t say. Nor can you.

    Another factor is that much of Latin America is obsessed with soccer not baseball.

    • snagglepuss August 29, 2020 at 6:12 pm #

      To respond to your previous post to this one, where you asked if I was Latino or white, I don’t get it. ‘ Latino’ denotes a culture and language, not race. There is every colour of the rainbow among Latinos, including ‘white’. I’m pretty sure I am whiter than you SV, being descended from Vikings, but you can put me down as polka dot and keep your distance as my spots might rub off on you and you will be said to be a carrier of measles………………

      Yes, the Dominican players dominate. Lots of Cubans and Puerto Ricans as well. They work incredibly hard under difficult conditions, and government funded ‘baseball schools’ identify the talented from a very early age. They get their due the old fashioned way – they ‘earn it’. But if you really want a wrench thrown into your analysis consider which countries have won the World Baseball Classic in past years. Japan. Korea also no slackard. They win because they are incredibly disciplined. They ‘apply themselves’. And again because they play for their country.
      I don’t watch MLB anymore, because it’s just Moneyball these days. Once you are introduced to Cuban baseball you are spoiled forever. Thank goodness I am able to travel to that beautiful country anytime I want to visit.

      • Sredni Vashtar August 29, 2020 at 8:37 pm #

        White Latinos do well in America. The Brown ones less so. Black ones, poorly except for things like athletics. Race is prior to or higher than culture.

        Why any White Man would revere non-Whites is the great mystery. Black kids don’t idolize White ball players after all. Nothing is sadder than White Men who wear the names of other men on their bodies.

    • Kim August 29, 2020 at 9:54 pm #

      The situation is similar on boxing. Poverty and social problems produces more men willing to pay the price to become champions.

      For the last twenty years boxing has been dominated by Eastern europeans and former soviet republics, GGG, Kovalev, Klitschko brothers, Tszyu, Lomachenko, Bivol, Usyk, and then there are the usual British and Irish Champs such as Fury and Warrington and the great Joe Calzaghe (47-0). There are also excellent Japanese Champs like Inoue, Filipinos like Pacquiao and Donato and plenty of Mexicans and central and South Americans and Africans white and black.

      A national boxing program such as they have in Cuba has given them some stature as amateurs but has not made them important in the pros. The deciding factors seem to be poverty/perceived lack of career alternatives and a community love for the sport (more participants).

If you get a shooting or something that requires a lot of resources, there’s just no one to go sometimes…. August has been a busy month for us as far as retirements, too. We’ll have over 50 people who have retired in the month of August…. We’re a lean agency.”

    means “to avoid mistakes we wil not respond to anything”

        Yet at one point in 1945 Eisenhower went on the record stating that he hated the Germans. It’s interesting o note that US Generals in the World Wars — Spaatz, Pershing, Ike, Patton, Rickenbocher to name a few — had German ancestry.

          Patton was independently wealthy.In the ’30s poor Ike signed every day for the street car tokens to travel around Washington,DC.
          Meanwhile George Patton rode one of his numerous horses at the country club.

          Thats why Patton could not keep his mouth shut and voiced his unsolicited opinions which proved to be alarmingly prescient.

          “The Germans are the only decent people left in Europe. It’s a choice between them and the Russians. I prefer the Germans.”
          from the book “Unknown Patton”

          Also Gen Patton kept a diary:

          14 May,1945

          “I have never seen in any army at any time, including the German Imperial Army of 1912, as severe discipline as exists in the Russian army. The officers with few exceptions give the appearance of recently civilized Mongolian bandits. The men passed in review with a very good imitation of the goose step. They give me the impression of something that is to be feared in future world political reorganization.”

            “Orderly and Humane: The Expulsion of the Germans After World War 2 by R.M.Douglas.

            This relates the story of both pre- and post-WW2 ethnic cleansing of Germans from Central and Eastern Europe under President Wilson’s holy policy of national self-determination.

            Apparently it was completely proper and moral for Germans to be driven without warning or compensation out of Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, the Soviet Union and so on, leading to post-war deaths in the millions because that was a question of national self-determination as enshrined first at Versailles and then again ffs at Potsdam, but if Germans implemented such a population movement or exchange policy (wrt to communist jews) then it was satanic.

            In 1922, subsequent to the Armenian horrors, there was a forced population exchange between Greece and Turkey that involved 1.4 million people and lots of burning villages. This was an officially approved program of ethnic cleansing ratified under the Treaty of Lausanne.

            The man who oversaw this ethnic cleansing, Fridtjof Nansen, the League of Nation High Commissioner For Refugees, received the Nobel Peace Prize for 1922 for “his work for the refugees in Asia Minor and Thrace”.

            Here are his words on the subject:

            “To unmixed the populations of the Near East will tend to secure the true pacification of the Near East.”

            For that, the Nobel Peace Prize.

            Of course, these are the same policies that gave us in the 1990s the Dayton Accord, ethic enclaves, and Kosovo.

            When it suits some people, it seems that ethnic and racial separation tends to peace. When others do it, it is a crime against humanity.

    DEMOCRAT NATIONAL COMMITTEE

    Dispatch 8/29/2020

    To all of our coalition friends on the Left:

    —URGENT—

    Our internal polling has indicated that the dynamic of the Presidential Election campaign has been changing over the past few weeks in a way that is quite troubling. In order to ensure that the Biden-Harris ticket is victorious in November we will need help and cooperation from all the various members of our rich and varied coalition partners to save……..Democracy. Yes, Democracy.

    Please be advised:

    1) To Black Lives Matter: Please cease and desist from all protests, peaceful and otherwise. Heavy emphasis on the “otherwise”. We will assign one of you as the official spokesperson for the media. Do not under any circumstances threaten to “go into the suburbs”. For the love of God, Allah, or your Higher Power of choice, don’t say that anymore!!

    2) To the Not Fucking Around Coalition: Please go away until at least November 3rd. We may need you on November 4th in case……well, you know why. Just stand by. But do disappear for now. No more marching around with heavy weapons and such. Yes, even at Stone Mountain. We will destroy that hideous thing next year with a low yield nuke. But for now, stay away. Please.

    3) To all of our brothers and sisters of color: Do not under any circumstances resist arrest!! Do exactly what any police officer tells you, no matter how ridiculous or unfair it seems to you at the moment. Just obey! Please. Kamala Harris is assembling a team of lawyers to be on standby to assist each and everyone of you in case of unjustified harassment and arrest. Just go ahead and allow yourself to be taken to jail. We’ll bail you out and ensure you have the best legal representation. Oh……hold on……My bad! It’s probably not a good idea to have Ms. Harris head up this team. Oh good! Michelle Obama has agreed to do it. Great! Now, once again, DO NOT RESIST THE POLICE until at least November 3rd!

    4) To Hillary Clinton: Go away. Okay make that Bill too. Yes, we had you speak at the convention. Count yourself lucky we even did that. Now just go away! Thank you.

    5) To all of our valued and lovable friends in Hollywood and in the music business: Silence please! Stay off Twitter unless you are sharing recipes or announcing news regarding your actual work. So essentially take that loathsome Laura Ingraham’s advice for now: Shut up and sing! Or act! Our polling shows that most people in the swing states despise you. Including Minnesota, which is very troubling to say the least!

    6) To the NFL Players Association: Please only kneel during the National Anthem on the very first game of the season, then stand with your hand over your heart like a good patriotic flyover country citizen for every following game until the election. We’ve exempted the NBA because, well, it’s the NBA. We’ve also exempted the Major Leagues because our polling shows that most voters don’t give a damn about baseball anymore. So many players aren’t even American anyway. But the NFL is sacred to the swing voters we need. So, please stand and act like you enjoy it!!

    Please stay tuned for further Dispatches as needed as the situation on the ground changes between now and Orange Man Bad liberation day! Together we can fool…..I mean do this!!

        Heh heh…. Yes I do think that if the above “Dispatch” were followed by all of the concerned groups it would help the Biden campaign.

        Who knows for sure how this election is going to play out, but I’m getting the feeling that the Dems are going to once again snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory. They are indeed clueless.

        Yesterday I listened to Michael Steele talk about this and he feels that the Dems are still out of touch with enough of the electorate to lose yet again. Of course I’m sure you know that he’s a part of the Republican Voters Against Trump organization. They have a YT channel if you didn’t know. And of course they are not under any threat of being censured by Google. Lol…

        Ironically he’d make a better DNC chairman than Perez is, who has been just a train wreck during his entire tenure.

      Perez is a guy with a very interesting background. We all know that he is a Soros pick, is Antifa-linked, was a lawyer for the anti-white La Raza group, and that in 2008 he received $1.5 million from Hugo Chavez to aid CASA, an illegal immigration group.

      The ways in which he he is a very wrong and creepy individual are many.

      https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/02/just_how_bad_is_tom_perez.html

      I did not know that he was the privileged son of the former ambassador from the Dominican Republic.

      But doesn’t it so often turn out that the most murderous leftists are from privileged or at least upper middle class backgrounds?

      One man’s and bloodsoaked revolution is apparently just another man’s social mobility.

          Castro: “Born in Birán, Oriente as the son of a wealthy Spanish farmer,”

          Lenin: Upper middle class. Never developed a callous in his life, except one on his finger from signing death warrants.

          Marx: “His father, as a child known as Herschel, was the first in the line to receive a secular education. He became a lawyer with a comfortably Upper middle class income; in addition to his income as an attorney, the family owned a number of Moselle vineyards.”

          Marx had nothing to complain about in his life except the boredom that comes from a life of pointless ease. Of course in London while receiving a stipend that was the modern equivalent of $150,000 a year from the Rothschilds (can’t remember the name for that book reference but it will come to me), he got his young maid pregant and abandoned her. An execrable pimple of a human being.

          Mao: “Mao was the son of a prosperous peasant in Shaoshan, Hunan.”

          And on and on it goes. They turn my stomach.

          • Kim August 30, 2020 at 3:51 am #

            I remembered:

            On Marx’s financial support from the Rothschilds, you can find it in Gary North’s 1967 book.

            This is a book that is really worth getting hold of.

            People here will know North from his website and voluminous writings on misery economics, hard money, etc.

    Renowned EU Scientist: COVID-19 Was Engineered In China Lab, Effective Vaccine “Unlikely” Tyler Durden Fri, 08/21/2020 – 06:00
    Authored by Steven Mosher via LifeSiteNews.com,

    It will not be possible for the Dr. Fauci’s of the world to dismiss Professor Giuseppe Tritto as a crank.

    Not only is he an internationally known expert in biotechnology and nanotechnology who has had a stellar academic career, but he is also the president of the World Academy of Biomedical Sciences and Technologies (WABT), an institution founded under the aegis of UNESCO in 1997.

    In other words, he is a man of considerable stature in the global scientific community. Equally important, one of the goals of WABT is to analyze the effect of biotechnologies – like genetic engineering – on humanity.

    In his new book, this world-class scientist does exactly that. And what he says is that the China Virus definitely wasn’t a freak of nature that happened to cross the species barrier from bat to man. It was genetically engineered in the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s P4 (high-containment) lab in a program supervised by the Chinese military.

    Prof. Tritto’s book, which at present is available only in Italian, is called Cina COVID 19: La Chimera che ha cambiato il Mondo (China COVID 19: The chimera that changed the world). It was published on August 4 by a major Italian press, Edizioni Cantagalli, which coincidentally also published the Italian edition of one of my books, Population Control (Controllo Demografico in Italian) several years ago.

    What sets Prof. Tritto’s book apart is the fact that it demonstrates – conclusively, in my view – the pathway by which a PLA-owned coronavirus was genetically modified to become the China Virus now ravaging the world. His account leaves no doubt that it is a “chimera”, an organism created in a lab.

    He also connects the dots linking the Wuhan lab to France and the United States, showing how both countries provided financial and scientific help to the Chinese as they began to conduct ever more dangerous bioengineering experiments. Although neither American nor French virologists are responsible for the end result—a highly infectious coronavirus and a global pandemic—their early involvement may explain why so many insist that the “chimera” must have come from nature. The last thing they want to admit is that they might have had a hand in it.

    Those of us who, early on, argued for a laboratory origin were dismissed as conspiracy theorists. Our articles were censored as “fake news,” often by American virologists who knew perfectly well what the truth was, but preferred to protect China, and themselves, from scrutiny lest they themselves be implicated.

    Dr. Tritto’s 272 pages of names, dates, places, and facts leaves such apologists with no place to hide. The story begins following the SARS epidemic of 2003, as the Chinese attempt to develop vaccines to combat the deadly disease. Dr. Shi Zhengli, about whom I have previously written, was in charge of the program at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

    In vaccine development, reverse genetics is used to create viral strains that have reduced pathogenicity but to which the immune system responds by creating antibodies against the virus. But reverse genetics can also be used to create viral strains that have increased pathogenicity. That is what Dr. Shi, encouraged by PLA bioweapons experts, began increasingly to focus her research on, according to Prof. Tritto.

    Dr. Shi first solicited help from the French government, which built the P4 lab, and from the country’s Pasteur institute, which showed her how to manipulate HIV genomes. The gene insertion method used is called “reverse genetics system 2.” Using this method, she inserted an HIV segment into a coronavirus discovered in horseshoe bats to make it more infectious and lethal. The U.S. was involved as well, particularly Prof Ralph S. Baric, of the University of North Carolina, who was on the receiving end of major grants from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease. This is, of course, Dr. Anthony Fauci’s shop. Fauci was a big proponent of “gain of function” research, and when this was prohibited at Baric’s lab because it was considered to be too dangerous, the research was shifted to China.

    Prof. Tritto believes that, while Dr. Shi’s research began as an effort to develop a vaccine against SARS, it gradually morphed into an effort to use “reverse genetics” to build lethal biological weapons. This was the reason that the Wuhan lab became China’s leading center for virology research in recent years, attracting major funding and support from the central government.

    I would add that the rule in Communist-controlled China is “let the civilian support the military,” which means that as soon as Dr. Shi’s research showed any potential military uses the PLA would have begun exercising control of the research. This came out in the open with the outbreak, when China’s leading expert on bioweapons, People’s Liberation Army Major General Chen Wei, was immediately placed in charge of the Wuhan Institute of Virology. As for Dr. Shi Zheng-Li, she seems to have disappeared.

    As Dr. Tritto explained in an interview with Italian media: In 2005, after the SARS epidemic, the Wuhan Institute of Virology was born, headed by Dr. Shi Zheng-Li, who collects coronaviruses from certain bat species and recombines them with other viral components in order to create vaccines. In 2010 she came into contact with American researchers led by Prof. Ralph Baric, who in turn works on recombinant viruses based on coronaviruses. Thanks to the matrix viruses provided by Shi, Baric created in 2015 a mouse Sars-virus chimera, which has a pathogenic effect on human cells analyzed in vitro.

    At that point, the China-US collaboration becomes competition. Shi wants to work on a more powerful virus to make a more powerful vaccine: it combines a bat virus with a pangolin virus in vitro and in 2017 publishes the results of this research in some scientific articles.

    Her research attracts the interest of the Chinese military and medical-biological sector which deals with biological weapons used as a deterrent for defensive and offensive purposes. Thus Shi is joined by doctors and biologists who belong to the political-military sphere, such as Guo Deyin, a scholar of anti-AIDS and anti-viral hepatitis vaccines and expert in genetic recombination techniques. The introduction of the new engineered inserts into the virus genome is the result of the collaboration between the Shi team and that of Guo Deyin. The realization of this new chimera, from a scientific point of view, is a success. So much so that, once the epidemic has broken out, the two researchers ask WHO to register it as a new virus, H-nCoV-19 (Human new Covid 19), and not as another virus derived from SARS. It is reasonable to think that Shi acted only from the point of view of scientific prestige, without however taking into account the risks in terms of security and the political-military interests that her research would have aroused. When asked why China has refused to provide the complete genome of the China Virus to the WHO or to other countries, Dr. Tritto explained that “providing the matrix [source] virus would have meant admitting that SARS-CoV-2 [China Virus] was created in the laboratory. In fact, the incomplete genome made available by China lacks some inserts of AIDS amino acids, which itself is a smoking gun.” The key question, for those of us who are living through the pandemic, concerns the development of a vaccine. On this score, Prof. Tritto is not optimistic:

    Given the many mutations of SARS-CoV-2, it is extremely unlikely that a single vaccine that blocks the virus will be found. At the moment 11 different strains have been identified: the A2a genetic line which developed in Europe and the B1 genetic line which took root in North America are more contagious than the 0 strain originating in Wuhan. I therefore believe that, at the most, a multivalent vaccine can be found effective on 4-5 strains and thus able to cover 70-75% of the world’s population.
    In other words, by withholding from the world the original genetic code of the China Virus that it created, the Chinese Communist Party is ensuring that no completely effective vaccine will ever be developed by the West.

    In other words, China continues to lie, and people continue to die.

    • SoftStarLight August 29, 2020 at 6:27 pm #

      And it does verify our very earliest fears that this virus was synthesized or chimeraized in a lab with the specific purpose of being aggressively infectious and deadly!! We are lucky this time that it isn’t far more potent. But what other chimeras are they working on? Hey actually another American professor or researcher was like literally just arrested for trying to take virology research back with him to China.

    • Travis August 29, 2020 at 7:03 pm #

      There is just no doubt that it was synthesized. No doubt at all.

    • neurodoc August 30, 2020 at 12:26 pm #

      Dr Tritto’s warnings are in line with what I’ve been saying on this blog about the mutations of COVID, now around 30+ per the HK Med U group. Too many mutations to even consider a vaccine.

      Therefore why the big hullaballu and thrust toward a vaccine? Here is it: check out the Apiject site (https://www.apiject.com/). They have received a ‘grant’ from the US DOD to produce 500 million vaccine injectors. Their bragging point: see the last paragraph in their site, entitled ‘A Digital “Snapshot” for Every Injection.’ More digging and you will find that the injector has a RF nanounit that will allow SOMEONE to track each person who receives the injection via GPS location. READ IT; it’s in clear black and white language. This is not a joke. 500 million injections; that sound like MANDATORY to me.

      Why would the DOD/Administration/Bill&Melinda foundation along with Glaxo, et al want to track who gets a useless vaccine?

      Sorry to cause loss of sleep but this BS is REAL!!!!! I have researched the hell out of it hoping it was some kind of internet hoax. IT IS NOT.

        Doc, isn’t this the case with AIDS as well, it just keeps mutating?

        Yet treatment for AIDS must exist (albeit expensive). Magic Johnson announced he had it about 30 years ago and I think he’s still above ground.

        Brh

        • neurodoc August 30, 2020 at 12:49 pm #

          Treatment is different from a preventive vaccine. The former is available for COVID but not at all PC (another discussion altogether); and obviously available for HIV (became available when I was in med school in the early 80’s). But no EFFECTIVE vaccine for either despite big pharma claims about HIV ‘prevention”. TOO many mutations. A vaccine has to target a specific viral entity with specific cell surface proteins on its invaded host. Each mutation yields different cell surface proteins, thus change in targets for a given vaccine.

          • neurodoc August 30, 2020 at 12:54 pm #

            The real problem is that Apiject Corp, at the behest of the US govmint and related big pharma entities, is making a vaccine injector that inserts a tracking device into your body. That’s what everyone needs to focus on. People- tracking via GPS from a vaccination that is ineffective by def.

      • neurodoc August 30, 2020 at 3:30 pm #

        Here is the DOD’s news release about the Apiject project. THey have removed the note about the GPS tracker since I last looked at it a month ago. Read this and then read the apiject website, last paragraph. Maybe just coincidence? Nothing to see here?

        Now the question becomes: Is Trump going to go along with this New World Order mandate or will he fight for us? That means no mandatory vaccinations.

    Be sure to mark 9/11/20 (Patriots Day) on your calendar if it isn’t already so indicated. A prize will be awarded to the person who can correctly guess the number of American flags that will appear in the background the president uses in his photo-op that day. God Bless America (after all, we’re the only country deserving of His (or Her?) blessings, right?).

    • Kim August 29, 2020 at 11:58 pm #

      @ tom clark

      1) Should the President of USA not appear in photographs with the flag of his own nation? On Patriot’s Day? What a very strange comment.

      2) Why do you thnik that God blessing America precludes him blessing other nations as well? Again, strange.

      I swear, leftists post here with what they seem to think is some real zinger, a garbled, Tourette-ish outburst, and you struggle to make sense of it.

        On your last item: it is snark they emulate from the Daily Show, or John Oliver and co.

        There was a great article a few years back on how those shows were carefully created with the involvment of psychologists and other professionals in behavioral science. Even the way the show unfolds in terms of timing of individual segments is planned to elicit specific responses in the brain.

        Once one watches enough of that sort of thing, any critical faculties that may have once existed have been largely destroyed.

    If this Covid -19 is some sort of Chicom weapon I don’t get the drift. The death toll from Covid since March 2020 in the US =180,000 attributed. Every day in the USA in a good year 7700 people die. So since March 1, 2020 on average we would have 185 days X 7700 = 1,424,500 stiffs. We will know in a couple years what the actual death toll was as many are put in the Covid column even though they were dead men walking before the Covid.

    • Travis August 29, 2020 at 9:26 pm #

      Well, if you are looking at it from the standpoint that it is a weaponized virus that was released on purpose then it doesn’t make sense. Most likely it got out of the Wuhan bio lab accidentally. In other words, before it was perfected. After all it affected China first. All it takes at any of these bio weapons labs around the world is for one technician to screw up and not follow protocol. All of them are accidents waiting to happen.

      • JohnAZ August 29, 2020 at 9:53 pm #

        Your opinions are noted. The old blame game, who is guilty. In the US, the blame game is open warfare for the liability lawyers. The Chinese give a s**t. The fact that labs were being used for vaccine/warfare virus development needs to be addressed by someone somewhere. On purpose/accident? Makes no difference. As long as humans are involved, errors will happen and accidental releases will happen.

        If it takes a year or more for a reaction to a released virus, whether accidental or not, eventually a bug will kill a goodly portion of humanity. Our goal has got to be destruction of viruses, a generic cure. Where is that work going on?

          And let’s get the word out about the crucial importance of building our immune systems.

          Get some sun or take D3. Take Vitamin C. Get some exercise. Go for a walk. Swim. Garden. Anything activity will do some good. Eat sauerkraut (or other probiotic) daily. Reduce those high glycemic carbs. Hang out with friends and family and have some hugs and laughs.

          In other words, do the opposite of just about everything the establishment is currently telling you to do.

          It is incredible that he could not manage and defeat this condition. Millions around the world have reversed it with simple changes in the diet that focus on restoring digestive health, the integrity of the gut lining and the dominance of good bacteria in the intestine.

          Instead what did Abe rely on? Big Pharma:

          Abe has spoken candidly about his condition, confirming to domestic media that he started taking Asacol, or 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA), in 2009 – two years after he first stepped down as prime minister. The drug was newly approved in Japan but had been available in other countries for some time.

          And what was the benefit to Abe of this new drug? Well, apparently not much.

          Big Pharma and the medical establishment are little better than jackals. Although that comparison probably insults jackals.

          Exactly. Waaaaaay back in January Francis Boyle said in an interview, which was of course pretty quickly banned by Google/YouTube, said that the Wuhan lab is especially bad. He also said that all of them are bad with regards to their “safety”. Boyle was the drafter of The Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, by the way.

    • neurodoc August 30, 2020 at 1:37 pm #

      The most serious aspect of COVID is not its death rate which is about the same as influenza (~.03%), not high. THE PROBLEM is that 50-60% of recovered COV victims, regardless of age, have pulmonary damage equating to COPD months out and likely permanent given the MRIs of their lumbs. Also 53% of recovered pts have heart damage, 1/2 of which are equivalent to congestive heart failure months out and likely permanent (i.e can’t walk up 4 steps without fatiguing and becoming short of breath).
      Weapon? who knows. If so it’s not a very good one for immediate kill. Maybe for softening up the populace prior to next strike????
