Thanks for your support

      Let’s face it: as pure theater, the president’s annual address to Congress has become a disconcertingly shabby affair, bursts of gloatish barking wedged into an hour of nearly continuous hand-clapping, as if drowning public utterances in applause might divert the audience from the empty, vicious bluster “Joe Biden” served up Thursday night. You couldn’t help but be reminded of the old Supreme Soviet in the twilight hours of Konstantin Chernenko, whose country’s renowned mortuary experts managed to embalm a year or so before his actual decease and interment.

     The Ruskies back in the day had a secret recipe for premature mummification of their leadership; our pharma-driven experts prefer to mummify not the body but the personality with a cocktail of adderal, clonazepam, and prednisone — the latter responsible for the ‘roid rage on view whenever “Joe Biden” is hauled out of his catacomb for public performances.

      The Kid from Scranton’s most memorably mendacious line got front-loaded, so as not to be lost on the watching millions already nauseated by “JB’s” pre-speech triumphal journey from the entrance down the aisle through the mob of his elected admirers clamoring for selfies:

“Not since President Lincoln and the Civil War have freedom and democracy been under assault here at home as they are today,” the president squawked.

     True dat. The part he left out was that said assault emanates entirely from the very government he pretends to head. It’s reported (in The Epoch Times today) that since the start of this year the FBI has rounded up 93 new suspects in the event of 1-6-21 touted as “the insurrection” — most of the years-old charges related to trespassing, disorderly conduct, and parading, conduct now regarded as nation-threatening. He also left out the prodigious three-year-long campaign of his inter-agency flunkies to abolish the First Amendment by capturing all the transmitters of free speech. And never mind the regime’s banana republic style lawfare op to jail “JB’s” chief political opponent on spurious charges before the November election — rank, in-your-face election interference.

      Also up front in the show: the regime’s lust to start World War Three by asserting falsely that Russia intends to invade and overrun Europe at any moment, in order to continue justifying our insane proxy war in Ukraine, now on its last legs. Putin Putin Putin is “sowing chaos throughout Europe and beyond,” the president barked to hearty applause, as if anyone in the chamber really believes it. The truth is that our country, now effectively the Intel States of America, has sown all that chaos.

     The feckless Ukraine project has failed. The end of the Zelensky fake-out is near. The CIA announced it in last week’s Sunday New York Times, and all that’s left to do is cover-up the Biden family’s private racketeering activities in that notorious money-laundry and then somehow escape the massive national humiliation that will ensue when this fiasco is concluded, finalizing America’s loss-of-standing in the world. It’s all on “Joe Biden” and everybody knows it.

     Now, the catch to the adoring hoo-rah ginned up on the left side of the chamber last night is that all the wildly applauding ninnies are plotting desperately to find some way to ditch “Joe Biden” before the party’s August convention, to avoid the embarrassment of having to toss him overboard at the last minute in a smoke-filled back room there — which would be an admission that his entire reelection campaign has been a ruse all along.

      As of this week, they’ve lost on the simple expedient to get Mr. Trump erased from blue state ballots. The biggest court actions against Mr. Trump are collapsing spectacularly. Fulton County DA Fani Willis has so wrecked herself that she’ll certainly be dropped from the case, could be kicked out of her job altogether, and stands to lose her law license for committing crimes ranging from perjury to conspiracy with White House lawyers to interfere with the coming election — and then lying about it under oath. The case itself is now so tainted with prosecutorial misconduct that any sane jurist would dismiss it on summary judgement

    Special Counsel Jack Smith’s main case (the “insurrection” rap) is getting batted around in the sure-thang DC federal district court, and could be defenestrated altogether by the Supreme Court any day now. I’ll go out on a limb here and predict that the so-called Mar-a-Lago document case will get tossed by Judge Aileen Cannon on the grounds of gross procedural misconduct as “discovery” reveals that the FBI raid was a dishonest pursuit of documents other than the ones logged on Jack Smith’s warrant — namely, Mr. Trump’s archive of RussiaGate crimes committed by the very DOJ that is going mad dog on him, an obvious gross embarrassment for them.

      It remains to be seen what other sort of election interference mischief can be cooked up by the Party of Chaos. We know that Rep. Jamie Raskin is grandstanding to concoct a bill to kick Mr. Trump off the ballot by an act of Congress. It’s already fulfilled its purpose of getting Jamie’s puss on MSNBC to impress the home folks in his Maryland district. Short of the CIA or some other clandestine outfit from the fathomless depths of the Intel Community gunning down Mr. Trump outright, the party’s best bet probably is to bring on the chaos needed for martial law and cancellation of the election by activating sleeper cells of the jihadists, “military-age men,” Maoist agents, convicts, and mental patients they’ve illegally ushered across the border to join with Antifa and BLM in an extravaganza of street violence as warm weather sets the stage for rioting and mayhem.

      All of that could easily be mooted by what looks like a dollar and bond market crisis shaping up on the financial scene in the spring days ahead. Why do you think Bitcoin and gold have made record leaps in recent weeks? I’ll tell you why: because a bunch of really rich people are fleeing desperately out of the dollar and things denominated in it for safe harbors as a financial ill-wind blows in from offshore. Alas, the BRICs are about to dethrone the world’s reserve currency. The value of our dollars could sink thirty percent or more overnight. The “unthinkable” approaches. So, maybe you better start thinking about it.

    A lot to unpack after that SOTU address. With any luck, that will be the last one that Biden and his handlers ever present to the American people!

    On a somewhat different note, don’t forget people, today is International Woman’s Day! Get out there and celebrate! I for one am identifying as a woman, but just for today. It is going to be a hoot!

    • Cankerpuss March 8, 2024 at 10:01 am #

      I saw two days ago that March is “women’s history month!”

      I’m going to identify as a woman today as well. LET’S CELEBRATE!

      • BackRowHeckler March 8, 2024 at 10:17 am #

        Women’s History Month?

        Back in the day I met many girls who did their best to hide their history.

        That’s the kind of ladies that I liked, the mysterious type.

      • hmuller March 8, 2024 at 12:30 pm #

        More power to you! I like to identify as a kangaroo on Australia Day.

        • ThorsHammer March 11, 2024 at 3:15 am #

          I identify as a male Grizzly bear. We are known to be particularly out of sorts when we first emerge from hibernation in the spring.

          I can’t wait for jogger season to get underway.

      • MiTurn March 8, 2024 at 6:23 pm #

        I’m waiting for “White Guys’ history month.”

        • aelpha March 11, 2024 at 8:02 am #

          From that perspective it really does seem demeaning to officially celebrate some arbitrarily relevant stereotype unless they are cosmically aligned.

          Maybe black history month (Feb) has common characteristics with Aquarius.

          It appears that women history month (March) has significant alignment with Pisces.

          Black women history month (April)is a good fit to Aries.

          Jewish Am heritage & Asian Am heritage month (May) is certainly Taurus.

          June is LGTBQ is Gemini, no duh.

          July is all food celebrations and thus Cancer.

          August is a bunch of innocous themes like artists, romance, crayons & golf ergo Leo.

          September is Hispanic heritage and Germanic and Yoga and Self-care; Virgo.

          October is LGTB history and Downs Syndrome awareness month certainly Libra.

          November is Native American and Diabetes and Vegan and Epilepsy and warrior care and world quality awareness portrayed as Scorpio.

          December, root vegetable & exotic fruit month, spiritual literacy month, national write a business plan month, national impaired/drunk/drugged driving prevention month each and all Sagittarius.

          January monthly commemorations: mentoring, blood donation, braille, hot tea, soup, slavery & human trafficking prevention. Capricorn.

          You can fit yourself in there somewhere and feel nationally appreciated.

      On a slightly different note, the “Republican” rebuttal given by an up and coming woman was what you would except for the endorsement of the “Putin = BAD WARMONGER” line which I suppose is a requirement today to those who seek higher office in the United States of intEL…

    • Jarek March 8, 2024 at 1:05 pm #

      Tucker unpacked it well. His main priority is Ukraine and its border. Our border got scarcely a mention until Maj yelled out Lakin Riley. The Kid from Scranton then talked about the tragedy of Lincoln Riley. It’s Trump’s fault, basically.

      But he does have a present for us: Abortion. He know how to make the ladies salivate. It’s coming back in the biggest possible way. Tucker seemed confounded: If we keep killing our kids or not having them, who is going to be Americans? Easy, Tuck, the newcomers. We’re being replaced.

      Despite its ugliness and absurdity, this plank is a winner. Never underestimate the fanaticism of the gigantic abortion lobby and women’s commitment to their spurious “freedom”. As Marx said:

      “Anyone who knows anything of history knows that great social changes are impossible without feminine upheaval. Social progress can be measured exactly by the social position of the fair sex, the ugly ones included.”
      -Karl Marx

      • Alfred March 8, 2024 at 5:38 pm #

        “Heaven or hell.”

        Alex Jones answered Tucker’s request for a 5 year outlook, at the end of TCN’s wrap of the STFU.

        Kinda puts knocking off early today in perspective.

        Bobby Jr. wants it, and he’s not completely nuts.

        • Cankerpuss March 8, 2024 at 10:30 am #

          The man believes carbon dioxide, aka, plant food, is destroying the planet.

          I also heard this week that the man has had associations with Epstein and the Lolita Express.

          I don’t get the warm and fuzzies about this Kennedy.

          • Beryl of Oyl March 8, 2024 at 10:37 am #

            Bobby went on a daytime outing with Epstein. With some of his kids.

            Epstein associated with whomever he could, among the political and ‘elite’.

            That was his job.

            Rich people hitch rides on each others’ private jets all the time.

            As for the climate stuff, I did say he wasn’t completely nuts.

          • Alfred March 8, 2024 at 11:12 am #

            In all of his policies, RFK Jr. will put people and places first. In recent years, climate change has made the environment a divisive issue, but there are many policies that make sense to skeptics and activists alike. We will emphasize those, and rebuild a broad environmental coalition to clean up this country.

            kennedy24.com -> policies -> environment.

            IDK squat about climate science, but I know when something is reasonable. It seems reasonable that we’re affecting the climate. That’s why we don’t poop in our yard.

            There are things we can do in our world that keep it clean and free of pollution. We can’t stop doing those things because some activist science types fudged some numbers. We need leadership that can discern between fact and fiction.

            I’m indifferent between RFK and DJT. But given DJT’s totally getting bamboozled by Fauci – I think RFK is the man for the job.

          • River March 8, 2024 at 11:39 am #

            RFK, Jr. is a force to be reckoned with and he’s polling very well (especially with younger voters) for an Independent candidate (even though MM and others continue to ignore his candidacy). If debates are held, Kennedy will shine and garner even more support. He only needs 34% to win…

            This is a man who lost his father and uncle to assassination so if anyone does, he understands the psychopathy of Deep State on a visceral level (and probably did at a much younger age than most of us when we were red-pilled).

            Let’s face it, we are in a War between Good and Evil, and Kennedy has proven through his actions that he is against the globalist agenda and that he is the man to crush Deep State.

          • Jarek March 8, 2024 at 1:08 pm #

            Beryl said he’s for putting Blacks above White even more than they already are, in terms of official favoritism in hiring, acceptance in elite colleges, contracts, etc.

            She’s not saying it as much now for some reason, but if it was true in the past, it remains true now – at least until he repents of this foolishness.

          • Beryl of Oyl March 8, 2024 at 1:41 pm #

            I’m not saying it as much now because I already said it. Besides, you keep bringing it up for me, Jarek.

            I stand by everything I said.

            His being in favor of affirmative action, still, shows that he is dangerously clueless to what has happened under cover of that policy, DIE.

            He doesn’t see the commie takeover of our education system?

            One of the biggest obstacles for blacks in America is libshits like Bobby Jr.

          • Yirgach March 8, 2024 at 2:07 pm #


            Besides you, RFK also doesn’t know squat about climate science. And just for the record, I do poop in my yard and know that will not change the weather let alone the climate.

          • Alfred March 8, 2024 at 5:50 pm #

            @Yirgach – Yeah, I think RFK himself said as much, and I was encouraged by his answer which I don’t remember.

            You poop in your yard?

            What’er yer neighbors sayin’

          • Yirgach March 8, 2024 at 9:39 pm #


            My neighbors are thanking me for getting the septic tank cleaned out every 5 years or so.

          • Pat Ormsby March 9, 2024 at 1:59 am #

            I consider RFK Jr. to be insurance on Trump’s life. In many ways, I prefer him to the latter, but Trump has the advantage of experience in dealing with the Swamp, and there are reasons they are so desperate to get rid of him.
            I’m registered in a thoroughly blue county of a blue state, so I will consider the situation overall, but will probably vote for the latter despite contributing to the former.

          • justanotherguy March 9, 2024 at 3:28 pm #

            we poop in our yard too.

            the septic tank cleanouts are on presidential election years – it gets too full to take any more, just like all of us.

        • Uncle Bob March 8, 2024 at 11:10 pm #

          RFK Jr. has said he thinks it’s treason if you have any doubts about global warming being caused by people rather than solar cycles, volcanic activity, and random weather patterns — in fact, he believes this is a capital offense. Not sure that’s someone we should want in the White House.

          Like voting even matters, we don’t even have a choice in who gets elected. Truth is I believe Trump will be elected just so these assholes can wreck havoc. It’ll be a real shame if Law enforcement stand by and do nothing this time even if they find themselves on the receiving end of an attack.

        I read that there was much vitriol, puerile logic and a drug cocktail that produced ‘Ole Yeller’ to emerge like a Zombie Woof, but a lot less cooler.

          It all has to burn down to the ground. There is no fixing what is currently in place. My only hope is that those who make it through to the other side prevent any and all attempts to resurrect what was lost. We tried that already, let’s move on. Attempts to restart accumulation and domination by those who want to become the new elites should be dealt with immediately and forcefully.

          • Cankerpuss March 8, 2024 at 10:58 am #

            I’m with you. when this does burn down I hope that what rises out of the ashes will be a completely different system than what this was. We call this freedom, I call it veiled slavery.

          • River March 8, 2024 at 11:54 am #

            Agree, and the sociopaths need to be ostracized until they crawl back into their closets and are once again forced to play the charade (like in years’ past when lawless and blatantly malevolent behavior actually got people in trouble) – through their actions – that they respect an individual’s sovereign rights.

            ‘They’ say that 1 in 24 individuals is a sociopath, but even if that’s accurate it certainly appears like there’s a much higher percentage of them within the ranks of the ‘global elite.’ Of course, especially in the case of unelected bureaucrats, a sociopath would thrive with all of that power and zero accountability.

          • Watcher March 8, 2024 at 12:25 pm #

            Here is where one must be very cautious. The powers that be desire it to burn down to the ground. This is why we see the plethora of moves that are generally self-destructive for a nation.

            The path to the new system requires the demolition of the old. The US is not being converted into a totalitarian state, it is being demolished by a thousand blows. The totalitarian state will rise from the dust, masquerading as perfection.

            The new nation will focus on prosperity and loyalty. It will demonstrate vast potential. It will be a heartless system. There will be no mercy. Offenses will be met with shocking punishment. People will call it good. People will feel secure. People will call it “peace”.

            Be advised. This pot of wild oats is going to boil over. By design.

        Replying here because I can’t reply to your response below for some reason.

        You said: how do we get past human nature.

        It will take several generations after the collapse. I’m not sure if the qualities you mentioned are endemic to the human species or are just a result of the ongoing programming – consume! Once the existing paradigm fades away, hopefully a more holistic one will arise. It will probably still require some ugly enforcement until the new theme catches on.

      Raymond, America doesn’t deserve better. Look at her people. Good God, what a disgusting group of people. Covered with tattoos, piercings and unnatural hair colors. Our women love and fight for the right to murder their own children. Men father babies and disappear. Fornication abounds. Pornography addiction is rampant. Most Americans are buried by debt as they try to “keep up with the joneses.” Divorce rates are nearly 50% (for those who even bother to get married). Few Americans go to church and believe in or worship God.

      Our Government is a bright reflection of the American people. A morally corrupt and vaccuous people who have no direction in life. Pathetic.

        This is congruent with the pronouncement that the world belongs to the god of this world, Satan.

        Conditions are only going to degrade further. This is a sign that the world is on track toward something already foretold.

        Everyone has a choice to make. The more evil the world becomes indicates that fewer and fewer people remain on earth who belong to the Most High. In other words, the powers of darkness are gaining strength as those who carry the light depart this world.

        It is not hopeless. This was already foretold. We were given an advanced briefing on what to expect:

        High iniquity. Geophysical upheavals. Spiritual manifestations. Plagues. Wars. Persecutions of those who embrace the blood of the Lamb.

        We are in this window. Things are moving quickly now. Many pillars will fall.

      I’ll vote for the narcissist psycho over the demented evil one, but am not expecting much positive as a result. Just read Trumpenstein on yesterday’s Lew Rockwell to be reminded of what Trump actually did when in office the last time.

      • Beryl of Oyl March 8, 2024 at 12:57 pm #

        Jimpa, I have seen that theory about Trump before, and I disagree with its premise.

        Trump was talking about issues with NATO and such long before he ran for president.

        He didn’t gain anything from getting in there, as we can all see.

        I posted some time ago here, an article from I think American Thinker, which I can’t find anymore, and it explained a lot of what I had been noticing about Trump.

        It called him Janus-like, and referred to the fact that his gut instinct is always the correct one, but then he talks to some big shot or other and gets turned around.

        If you have read Dr. Scott Atlas’ book on the covid fiasco, you’ve seen that Dr. Atlas said the exact same thing about him.

        I haven’t exactly made friends by warning about this tendency of his, in fact I was kicked off of one site for saying this was a problem

        Then there were the “so vote for Biden” cracks.

        Guess what? We HAVE a President Biden now, and his win was enabled by the absurd mail-in election idea that was come up with because of invented mitigations for a cold that was going around.

        If enough of us had insisted that he either start listening to us or he could forget about a second term, things might have been different.

        • Jarek March 8, 2024 at 1:19 pm #

          Yes, the manner in which he says things is often crude and of course he often doesn’t have all the details or have them right. But he is often sound in the main.

          So his retainers take issue and then get him completely turned around, not just in the details but in the main.

          My favorite all time comment on American Renaissance: Your opponents understand you better than you understand yourselves, and they use it to great effect against you.

          His retainers and controllers (like Jared) will always endeavor to throw the baby out with the bathwater. That’s their job, unbeknownst to Trump. So he kept Jared, but fired the patriot Corey Lewandowsky. Jared and Ivanka were very pleased…..

        • Jimpa March 8, 2024 at 5:26 pm #

          Beryl, So, why did he appoint all those people who gave him such bad advice, many of whom worked against his stated agenda? The reason is the powers that be wanted it that way. Trump is a tool for them just like Biden is. The result is the destruction of what’s left good in our country.
          Trump is a much different tool, but a tool none the less. Read Trumpenstein.

          “Trump was talking…”

          Yes, talking – but walking in the other direction.

          “He didn’t gain anything from getting in there…”

          He did his job – sow division, turn the left into the deranged Marxist mob that they now are.

          “If enough of us had insisted that he either start listening to us…”

          He would have ignored us, as he did all along.

            I told you my reasons why I would consider voting for him, out of the choices that I have.

      • Blackbird March 8, 2024 at 6:27 pm #

        Thanks for pointing out “The Trumpenstein Project”. Apparently Donald Jeffries has my house and iPhone bugged. I called Trump out as a golem (named “Trumpenstein”) created by Team Hildebeast before he was even elected.

        The Democrats seem to have taken the advice I carelessly tossed around back in ’04 when it was obvious John Kerry was not running for President (he was sweeping the path clear for Dubya). That advice was that the Democrats – if they were serious about putting one of their own in the Oval Office – should promote a Republican so repugnant to a large segment of the population that he would scare otherwise agnostic voters into the arms of the Democrats.

        I agree with everything Jeffries said about Trumpenstein’s “accomplishments” while in office (and have been saying those things since 2017 myself…). Trump’s job was to convince the formerly authority-skeptical Democrats to embrace the lamestream media, our “intelligence” agencies, and dance to the tunes of the Mighty Wurlitzer. His job was to sow division and he accomplished it marvelously – I think that’s why he was selected rather than the Hildebeast.

        Without Trump – and the media-created image of him being “Anti-Vaxx” (despite his constant bragging about “Operation Warp Speed”) – I doubt as many people in this country would have so gleefully lined up for the Death Shot. The fact that their TDS led to the early death, and probably sterilization, of a large number of leftist lunatics is probably the only accomplishment of Trump’s that, in the long run, was beneficial.

        Fool me once…

        And yet, here we go again.

            Open borders are stupid for whom? Put yourself in O-Biden’s shoes. Any election circus in which there is any semblance of actual vote counting means certain defeat. Even the ballots already harvested from the 20 million invaders you facilitated with the help of Soros” NGO’s are not enough to guaranty victory.

            The remaining Demonrat move has already been put in play. The O-Biden team flew 320,000 military recruits directly from their home bases in countries that hate us to staging sites deep in the Heartland. If the “Judicial System” fails in its mission to sweep the board clear of all but the one Selected Candidate and the CIA Assassin Team chooses the wrong poison for Trump, there is still the Presidential Guard formed from carefully vetted tens of thousands of foreign guest soldiers. They should be more than capable of creating a level of chaos wherein the “citizenry” will clamor for martial law to restore order and a mummified Pedo Joe can continue to represent the true spirit of the USA..

        • tresho March 8, 2024 at 11:10 am #

That’s how bad he wants to win, he wants to bring them in legally to avoid sounding like a “Bigot” or a “Xenophobe.” Truly is path ethic you have to pander to get elected. Unless he really meant what he said, in which case I believe he does.

          • Blackbird March 8, 2024 at 6:38 pm #

    FACT: the corporate tax rate has been a flat 21% since 2017.

    FACT: Last night Biden said he would raise the corporate tax rate from 15% to 20%.

    I remember this 2017 flat tax quite well since it changed the 15%-35% graduated rate to a flat 21% and thereby raised the tax rate on the small businesses with small profits. It wasn’t “fair”, but the left never caught on to it to attack Trump.

      There are regular income tax rates and there are minimum tax rates. The regular corporate income tax rate is 21%. The minimum rate is 15%. Biden wants to raise the regular corporate rate to 28% and the minimum corporate rate to 21%. Normally, the minimum income tax rate is computed on a larger tax base (by adding back certain deductions to corporate income). My information comes from a news clip published by Reuters on Biden’s SOTU speech.

      • Alfred March 8, 2024 at 11:29 am #

        Raising the price of doing business for EVERY business is just a price increase to their end customers. If you raise the tax rate on the fortune 50 (the owners of our country) they will just pass that along to us. They never, never, never suck it up. Privatize the profits and socialize the losses is just how they do things.

        Health costs and health insurance is a great example. You would think some insurance companies would fold under the staggering increases in health care costs, yet they don’t. I think that’s because they just pass the rising cost onto the premium payers.

        Sadly, even when the cost of doing business goes down, they don’t pass those savings along, do they?

        • tuco22 March 8, 2024 at 11:36 am #

          Of course, the elected representatives pushing this know that, but the public at large doesn’t, and they think that the “evil” companies are finally going to pay “thayer fayer shayer” and Biden struck another blow for the little guy!

          Al- Not only do the insurance companies just pass off the costs, they don’t care.

Eventually, if the current system doesn’t collapse into something like WMBH (IMO very likely), the health insurance corporations will buy up the healthcare corporations and the big pharma corps, and then we’ll have one centralized, unified healthcare entity called HEALTH, Inc.

        Biden appeared drugged to me–that’s why he talked quite quickly.

        It as pretty good speech, in the sense that it was aimed at the ignorant who dislike or fear Trump, who might leave thinking, “yeah, Biden is alright”, because it was so full of brazen lies and distortions.

        In that sense, it was a good speech.

        It was not as good as JHK’s column today, which neatly dissects Biden’s speech.

        But JHK leaves out one facet of the Democrats’ plan for November: they will play up “abortion rights”. That infanticide is a winning issue was on clear display last night.

        Gold and Bitcoin are up–but so is the big Casino Wall Street, the stock market. Kind of like fattening the calf for the slaughter, with

        “…a dollar and bond market crisis shaping up on the financial scene in the spring days ahead..”

        I agree with that.

        Then again, we’ve been on the verge of financial collapse for years, and the last collapse of 2009 did not implode the economy and over time it was papered over, to set the stage for a bigger “next” collapse.

        It was “papered over” at the expense of working and middle class people, of course. Most working folks and middle class people took the financial hit, got up, and moved on–but not all.

        From the IRS website:
        “Considering the challenges of determining CAMT liability, Notice 2023-42PDF provides that the IRS will waive the penalty for a corporation’s estimated income tax with respect to its CAMT for a taxable year that begins after Dec. 31, 2022, and before Jan. 1, 2024.”

        It seems this 15% is something new that will have to be calculated when corporations file their taxes next April 15th. It won’t apply to 99% of corporations, but it sounds like a bone thrown to the democratic voters. Unfortunately, that bone creates more paperwork and money for accountants.

    I didn’t watch the state of the union. In fact, I haven’t watched one of these charades since W. In fact, I didn’t realize it was the state of the union until I logged on to our host’s blog.

    Didn’t miss it. Not one bit. I refuse to waste one second of my limited life time listening to useless grifters like Biden and all the rest of them. Useless human beings they are. Thinking they are the most important souls, true leaders, when in reality they are dregs of humanity and most of us thinking people hold nothing but disdain, loathing and hatred for these awful people.

    If only they knew. Maybe they do. I saw a video a while back of MItt Romney exiting the plane in a Salt Lake City airport. He was greeted with a plethora of jeers and heckles. I believe that this lack of popularity and abundance of disdain for him is why he chose to not run for a second term. These people, by and large, are despised and hated.

        Our country is in the grip of narcissists, and a lot of them, on both sides of the political spectrum. While Trump is just another narcissist, if elected, I believe he will pursue a bit of personal vengence, which I support, though I don’t see how they can let him live. I also believe he will close the border to the best of his ability, and perhaps round up as many illegals as he can catch and send them back. He will certainly stop supporting them. so that many may return of their own volition. He is unlikely to pursue foreign engagements. I’d call that a good start. Who cares what his motives are?

        • neurodoc March 8, 2024 at 4:33 pm #

          The best Trump can do is slow down the inevitable collapse of US society. He CAN get rid of some illegal scum, block some of the communist’s agendas, but the US$ is going DOWN, and any so called ‘asset’ denominated in or dependent upon the US$ is toast.

        I’m not a Trump fan at this point–he is a roll of the dice.

        He is NOT Biden, so that is a huge plus.

        Trump appears to be the lesser of two evils–by far. But who knows–compliment the Don, stroke him and his ego, and he could be Biden II….

        I’m kinda tired of the Don’s childish comments, the latest one being that “Israel should finish the job”, or gems like “the Oct 07 attack would not have happened if I was President” or “Putin would not have invaded if I was President” . I find the Donald’s comments tiring and absurd, since President Trump help contribute to both those events.

        The only thing I feel fairly confident he will do better is border security–because going from LESS THAN ZERO (Biden: “America is open, come on in”) to something, even something small, is an infinite improvement.

        As President, he bought the COVID BS. He insists that mRNA was a great vaccine.

        If people here are going to knock RFK–DESERVEDLY so—then we need to see Trump as he is. (And I have issues with RFK too).

        So I see Trump as a wild card. That’s if he manages to win. In 2024, RFK is what The Donald was in 2016, but RFK has some big flaws–Palestine (perhaps because an Arab shot his dad, or RFK’s liberal Jewish friends like the former Mr Epstein, and based on comments here, his views on global warming and race.)

        Don’t underestimate the dislike for Trump–or for Biden. It’s cliche, but as noted everywhere, other than Trump’s diehard fans, many THINKING people are quite unhappy about choosing between the Golden Golem of Greatness or the dementia-ridden imbecile.

        I thought Donald Trump was a gamble in 2016—the best chance to get this country of the express lane to hell and try to right the USS Titanic. He SAID many of the right things, and he spoke the unspoken truths. Good!

        Perhaps I underestimated the magnitude of the challenge (the culture wars and other BS and “Lawfare” that wasted a lot of Trump’s time and energy). I tend to focus on hard issues, like money, the economy, the size of the pie and who gets what and military/foreign affairs). Those were daunting in 2016. The solutions (at least MY solutions) would be painful.

        Then again, when one is very sick and goes to the hospital, things get worse before they get better–and there is a risk the patient may not survive. On a more benign level, for most people, losing weight takes effort. You just don’t go the to doctor with cancer and leave cancer-free and ready to a triathlon, which is what ALL politicians sell. Even my favorite, Ron Paul, spoke in half-truths. Pruning the government WOULD be good. But in the short-term, it would cause some pain for many people, and perhaps a lot of pain, for a few, and perhaps some would never recover. You can’t say the whole truth. The half-truth is a lie. And that’s why things are the way they are.

        Back to Trump. Then, “they” conjured up the COVID plandemic, and the riots of 2020. Before that, for all his quirks, despite himself, and despite (or perhaps because of???) all the lawfare and harassment, Trump was going to win in Nov. 2020.

        I didn’t overestimate Trump’s ability in 2016. Lots of people can SAY what needs to be done. You could blindfold me, and have me pick a CFNer, and even though I disagree with some of you quite a bit, other than the occasional trolls, chances are ANY ONE here has a better prescription for what ails this country than the ruling class. Even those of you who support the ongoing genocide in Gaza and apartheid on the West Bank–although prosperity bereft of morality is ultimately also a loser.

        But it’s hard to get things done than to say what is wrong. And the past FIVE years have made it much, much harder. Just my 22 cents.

        • Grandpa March 8, 2024 at 3:53 pm #

          Soc-Det, Trump has his flaws, and for the most part we’ve discussed them here.
          I will toss two things in the mix here.
          The first is from a younger brother at church, a Marine veteran of “the GWOT’. He spoke to men’s ministry about the end of their race through Kuwait, when he and his fellows were basically hanging around the airport in Baghdad, waiting to go home. Of course, the urgency to deploy them was not matched with a desire to get them home. He told us that their ride home, for many; was on 747s that said “Trump” on the side. Seems when Trump heard they were waiting to get a ride home;, he offered his aircraft and crews, if the government would provide fuel. I spoke with the young man later, and said I was surprised I’d never heard about it. He told me that as far as he knew, that’s how Trump wanted it. It was for the troops not for self agrandizement…
          The second thing is, a great many of us sent Trump to D.C. as a wrecking ball. My reason for voting for him before, and this time, is the same – go to the imperial capital and break the mess up. Wreck it, because you can’t engineer on top of a mistake.

          • BackRowHeckler March 8, 2024 at 7:06 pm #

            That’s a good story, G. Not many people know that he didn’t accept a presidential salary during his 4 years in office; IOW he was putting up with all that BS for free.

            When Kate Hudson’s family was murdered Trump stepped up and paid for the funerals. I’ll bet there are dozens of generous acts we don’t know about.

          • Socrates-Detroit March 9, 2024 at 2:31 pm #

            Good points. Trump did good, decent things that were under-reported or not reported.

        • Uncle Abraham March 9, 2024 at 12:13 pm #

          For the umpteenth time, and as long as I draw breath on this forum and hear Soc’s mischaracterization – the genocide is from Gaza and all Islamists supporting Muhammad’s quest for world domination. This isn’t an opinion or theory/ it’s a documented fact. There wouldn’t have been a single Gazan death if they weren’t the aggressors and every single one of you knows this. They also could have stopped the bloodshed and destruction at any point with an unconditional surrender. So you’re either on one side or the other. For genocidal death-loving cultists, or Israel.

          • Socrates-Detroit March 9, 2024 at 3:00 pm #

            The people bent on one-world government are the international bankers.

            Their goal is “world domination through financial manipulation”.

            When force is needed, their “enforcer” is the is the US military and US government.

            They are the same clique that supports Israel and makes sure the US supports Israel.

            Since a lot of the international bankers are Jewish, we are not allowed to discuss their role in world affairs because it is “anti-Semitic”. So they can, and do, operate in the shadows.

            The Islamists at this time, and for the foreseeable future have no global reach or global power militarily. They are a regional actor.

            The “elites” have permitted Islamists to emigrate to Europe (much like they allow Mexicans and Latin Americans to come to the US) because it serves THEIR agenda to control Europe and the US even more, not because of some “Islamist plot”.

            Most of the Islamists want to be left alone by the West. They are not, so they lash out here and there.

            They happen to sit on top, or near, a lot of the world’s oil. And a few of them happen to be victims of the Israelis.

            But I do appreciate your candor in saying that the bloodshed could be stopped if they would just UNCONDITIONALLY SURRENDER.

            There, you have finally, spoken some truth. Give yourself a hand!

            Yes, if those pesky Palestinians would simply submit to live like slaves under apartheid-like conditions, the bloodshed would end. All they have to do is accept being slaves, and they can be allowed to exist.

            Personally, I suspect that wouldn’t be enough. That’s why Israel provoked Oct 07, to have their pretext (it’s been done before. The US did the same thing with the Japanese, leading to Dec 07).

            So, apartheid imposed on the native Africans by the white settlers was bad? Segregation and Jim Crow in the US were bad? But apartheid imposed by the Israelis on the native Palestinians is OK?

            In any case, why should Americans care what happens to Israel? It’s not my country. And in any case, the Israelis are not the victims, they are the victimizers.

            If YOUR ancestors ran the gas chambers in Germany and Poland and you feel bad–write a check yourself. Or, better, just go to Palestine and enlist in the Israeli Army and go to Gaza or join the oppressors in the West Bank.

            I have no problem with that–provided the US government allows people who want to fund the Palestinians or join them in the fight against Israeli oppression are afforded the same opportunity.

            I have a problem with my tax money, taken from me (and everyone who pays taxes) at gunpoint, going to help Israel.

            Why should my tax money go to support these people?

            Why should Americans endure more inflation, more deficits, to help Israel?

            What’s Israel done for America? Tell us.

        Can someone explain why Democrats became so friendly with the neocons in recent years? Some of you may recall that the Maidan Revolution of 2014 was encouraged by neocon Victoria Nuland. Nuland left her State Department post when Obama left the White House but became part of the Biden administration in early 2021. I suspect that the neocon influence in the Biden administration led Putin to believe that his Ukraine problem could not be resolved peacefully. Biden nominated Nuland to replace Wendy Sherman in the #2 State department post when Sherman retired in mid 2023. But it appears that Nuland could not be confirmed by the Senate and her nomination was quietly dropped.

          • Socrates-Detroit March 9, 2024 at 3:45 pm #

            NeoCons: hawks on foreign/military policy, “moderate” on domestic issues. That’s how I see them–and that’s the “Scoop Jackson” wing of the Democrats in the 1970s (after Vietnam and Watergate, many Democrats were more “dovish”, like McGovern).

            The Neocons’ roots are in the Democratic Party–the “Scoop Jackson” wing of the 1970s (Jackson was a hawkish Dem Senator from Boeing…aka Washington) and Jewish cold war intellectuals such as Norman Podhertz (Commentary magazine) and Irving Kristol (father of Bill).

            American Jews were almost UNIVERSALLY Democratic during that era (today they are mostly Democratic, but not universally. The Republicans opened their doors to non-WASPs decades ago).

            The end of the Cold War represented a big threat to the Warfare State/Military Industrial Complex.

            So the Cold Warriors rebranded from “fighting Communism” to fight “Islamic Fundamentalism” and the “War on Terror”.

            That’s associated with Bush junior (who conveniently did not have to fight in Vietnam). Paul Wolfowitz, John Bolton, are considered by many to be the “architects of W’s foreign policy”. You know, the “forever wars” that have worked out so well….

            All the heavyweight Neocon intellectuals are NOT Jewish–but many (perhaps most? Nuland is–her husband, Max Boot is) are Jewish.

            So, their hawkishness and Jewishness is like a match made in heaven for the Israeli establishment.

            The level of abuse toward the Palestinians has increased considerably since 2000.

            I’m sure it’s just a random coincidence with the NeoCons openly taking over US foreign policy.

            Certainly, the NeoCon philosophy works well for international bankers, as military spending on all sides goes up.

          • Paula D March 9, 2024 at 7:48 pm #

            Nuland is married to Robert Kagan.

          • Socrates-Detroit March 10, 2024 at 2:01 pm #

            @PaulaD Good catch. My mistake. I confused the two Neocons, Kagan and Boot. Both of whom I think are Jewish.

            But my post remains notionally correct.

            The NeoCons roots were in the Democrat party, and as more Democrats became less hawkish, as the Western system “broke down” in the 1980s (in the sense that the system no longer worked as well for working people and the middle class as it had, as you have noted in your comments about the Reagan era), the NeoCONS were hawks who became more conservative in the wake of Reagan/Thatcher and decided to join the “winning team”.

            They were are the forefront of Bush Jr’s policy, and have remained there ever since, but even before that, their hawkish ideas resonated with the US establishment, and align with the globalist international bankers.

            Still, my error detracts. My apologies. Thank you for pointing it out, I appreciate it.

          Yes, easily! Believe it or not, the Neo-Cons were Communists who as a group changed into Conservatives over-night in order to move America in the way they wanted – one that would serve their people.

          They succeeded and they have met the Liberals as the latter moved Left. Remember, they Neo-Cons have no problem with Communism. Neo-Liberalism and Neo-Conservatism have different talking points, histories, and target audiences, but a hellfire missile is a hellfire missile. They both want to expand the American Empire. Neither of them really believe in what they say they believe in. They believe in power for themselves and their class.

          The final Elite system will have elements of both Capitalism and Communism, namely wealth for them, and poverty for everyone else, along with chips in the head.

          • Socrates-Detroit March 10, 2024 at 10:43 pm #

            @jarek If one read Buchanan’s excellent book, “The Unnecessary War”, one knows that in the run-up to September 1939 (the official start of WW2 when the Germans invaded Poland), the Poland was as dictatorship.

            One also knows that “Danzig corridor” impeded the movement of people from Germany proper to East Prussia/Konigsberg (which we now know as Kaliningrad, Russia).

            The Germans asked diplomatically for freer access. The Polish government essentially told the Germans to pound sand, because Poland’s leader had a treaty with Britain and France and he just knew that Germany wouldn’t dare to make trouble and risk a war with those two.

            While I understand traditional Polish enmity toward Germans, the Poles were unreasonable, and gave Hitler the pretext he needed to attack Poland and get some “Lebensraum” (that’s “living space” for the self-proclaimed master race).

            History rhymes.

            Anyway, Buchanan explains (and FOOTNOTES) all of this in his superb book.

            Despite working for Nixon, Pat was a brilliant man. And working for Nixon helped Buchanan’s career.

            Unfortunately, Pat’s hard truths could not be digested by an American electorate that prefers sugar-coated half-truths.

The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”

            “Facts that contradict a stupid person’s prejudgement simply need not be believed, and when they are irrefutable, they are just pushed aside as inconsequential, as incidental.”

            “Stupidity is, in effect, not an intellectual defect, but a moral one.” A side-effect of conformity.

        That’s why I get so frustrated with RFK Jr.

        I start adding up the positives and negatives for either man, but the thing is, Trump is already ahead by default for the reasons I just listed.

        I look at the climate nuttery. Trump is clearly ahead on that, but RFK is ahead on the covid, so it’s a wash there.

    Scranton Joe…

    Has there ever been a more ridiculous automaton trotted out on the world stage? Empty suit, empty head, empty soul, juiced to the gills, alternately mumbling, screaming, spewing, and jabbering hateful noise and obvious lies.

    It took about 75 years for the USSR’s Bolshevik Paradise to degrade to this terminal state. I suppose we should be grateful the brain trust just skipped ahead to the end of the line in this pathetic attempt to flip America.

    Remember the madcap hi jinx in Moscow when the wall came tumbling down? These are the salad days ahead in Washington D.C..

            I remember visiting Mexico in the 1980s and seeing the Federalies patrolling the streets to stop crime etc. I actually thought how wonderful America was to NOT have soldiers in the streets.

            Boy is 2020s America a huge disappointment to me. I guess the growing army of UBI and other welfare gimmes are happy though.

            It is hard for Myself and most conservatives to reconcile to ourselves that the body of the population is what has changed, into an illiterate group of gimmes looking to the government to provide and voting for anyone who says he/she will give them more.

            How wrong you are.
            Every American citizen is empowered with citizen arrest.
            In the Kommie state of Kalifornia:

            The language of the code section reads as follows:

            Penal Code 837 – A private person may arrest another:

            1. For a public offense committed or attempted in his presence.

            2. When the person arrested has committed a felony, although not in his presence.

            3. When a felony has been in fact committed, and he has reasonable cause for believing the person arrested to have committed it.

            A few examples of a lawful citizen’s arrest include:

            Mark grabs a guy at a bar, after he unsuccessfully throws a beer bottle at a patron, and tells him he is arresting him for assault (per PC 240).
            upon seeing a prostitute solicit services on the street, Lou calls 9-1-1, stops the prostitute, and informs her she is under arrest for solicitation (per PC 647(b)).
            while shopping in a department store, Riley stops another woman after observing her put a blouse in her purse and tells her she is arrested for shoplifting (per PC 459.5).
            A wrongful arrest (“false arrest”) could lead to civil and/or criminal charges.

      So what are people suppose to do? They killed the dollar for no reason, now people won’t be able to survive unless they have gold?

      • Cankerpuss March 8, 2024 at 11:07 am #

        Honestly, truths seeker, I don’t see gold as the answer. What good is a pile of gold if there is no food? You can’t eat it.

        I have been working on a barter kit that contains many items that people will need and want during a time of crisis. Common household goods that we currently take for granted like feminine hygiene products, deodorant, toothpaste, women’s cosmetics, diapers, baby formula, chocolate, Ibuprofen, etc. I also stock up on things that people get addicted to such as alcohol, cigarettes and other things people would want to get their hands on in a collapse. These items, once they are no longer readily available will be more valuable than gold. Ammunition will be highly valuable as a barter tool. Motor oils as well.

        Also, I buy silver. I don’t buy gold. I’m not going to be stuck using a 1 ounce gold coin worth $5,000 to buy loaf of bread. Buy junk silver. It is not as expensive as gold and can be used as a precious metal currency.

        • tuco22 March 8, 2024 at 11:27 am #

          A barter kit like that is a good idea, Cankerpuss.

        • mary.m March 8, 2024 at 12:22 pm #

          Same here. Box full of toothbrushes, paste, floss, mouthwash. Dollar general has 10-packs of ivory soap bars that jumped from $5.00 to 5.50/pack last year. Don’t know what they are today, but still much cheaper than the fancy brands. Simple tools: scissors, shovels, sewing kits, etc.

          I’m also stocking up on extra socks & underwear for me, along with other clothes. Clean, dry socks are a must. Necessary things that store easy & I expect will ve unavailable or exorbitant in cost when tshtf. That will leave what funds In he ave a VC available for food & heat

          I discovered this winter that I can start some greens indoors with just a south window & regular light bulb. Spinach failed, but may have been poor seed. Swiss chard is doing great.

          My chickens are doing well & the hens started laying again in early Feb. When they get going & mud season is over I will be trying my hand at water glassing the extra eggs. I figure 100 eggs will carry me from late October to early February.

        • pranah March 8, 2024 at 1:31 pm #

          I used to advise my women friends to consider stocking up their personal lifetime’s worth of feminine hygiene products. Take tampons. As an example: If a 32-year-old woman used one box a month, give or take a few tampons, and planned for 23 years of menstruation (until age 55), that would be 23 years x 12 months = 276 months, or 276 boxes she would possibly need. Throw in some more when thinking about it, plus some pads or whatever. This could be done. Of course, she’d have to keep them dry.

          Anyway, I’ve long thought women will probably do anything to get tampons. They’ll be screaming when the blood’s running down their legs. I asked my mother about what it was like before tampons, when they employed reusable cloth (rags)–she said, and I quote, “It was the pits.”

          • Not_GeorgeT March 8, 2024 at 2:08 pm #

            Junk silver is useful, as are low weight gold such as the 20 franc coins used in Europe in the latter 19th century. Both could be called ‘pocket change’.

          • megabeth March 8, 2024 at 2:55 pm #

            Menstrual cups made of silicone are reusable. One will practically last forever. I spent $35 on one and loved it, thinking, “Where has this been all my life?” Menopause set in the very next month, lol.

          • MiTurn March 8, 2024 at 6:44 pm #

            So what did women do before tampons? I think that most of them got this figured out…

          • pranah March 8, 2024 at 10:10 pm #

            megabeth, menstrual cups, yeah. I didn’t know about them when I was formulating my personal hygiene plans twenty years ago. If they work for someone, she’d do well to score some. I tried the cup–didn’t work for me, except on light flow days.

            MI Turn, before tampons, women used pads or reusable cloths, i.e., rags. Is “on the rag” still idiom? Or “ragging” on someone? Amyway, I doubt most women of menstruating age have given this a moment’s thought. They will solve their individual issues soon enough when it becomes necessary.

      • tuco22 March 8, 2024 at 11:25 am #

        No, I’ve been thinking about that, too, especially with all the commercials on TV pushing people to buy gold, but if they plan to go digital, which I believe they do, precious metals won’t do you any good. There won’t be an infrastructure available to use it as a medium of exchange for goods and services.

        • TruthSeeker1986 March 8, 2024 at 3:44 pm #

        “They killed the dollar for no reason…”

        No, they had a reason, a very good one – good for them.

        They killed the dollar to bankrupt the US citizens so that they can steal our property for barleycorns-on-the-dollar. Then they can enslave us. Then they can kill us.

        And Cank is right (again…). Gold is a rich man’s refuge. The smallest gold coin will be too big to buy anything you need (and that is still available) when the whip comes down.

        The precious metals of the future: junk silver (pre-1965 dimes, quarters, and half dollars – 90% silver) and lead (backed by an explosive charge).

    I am seeing that Bobby Jr. may be seeking the Libertarian Party line.

    That sounds strange, but he isn’t any worse of a candidate for them than the others they put up.

    That makes sense.

    I did speculate a while back, on how Jr. was going to find it more than an uphill battle to go third party, trying to get on the ballot in all fifty states, especially without an experienced campaign manager.

    I wondered if he was taking on a nearly impossible task out of a need to atone or something psychological like that.

    He did say that Sisyphus was happy.

    If true, I am glad to see him taking a more pragmatic approach.

    Maybe he could pledge to get rid of that “kill switch” on day one.

    It’s us the want to kill.

      If I have this right, if the Libertarian Party doesn’t garner a certain % of the vote in a state they won’t automatically be on the ballot for the next election which means that they’ll have to go through all of the work that an Independent candidate has to do in order to be listed on all 50 ballots, so from that angle it would be an advantage for the LP.

    The Trump Derangement crowd is always saying that we should be against Trump because he and his followers are this dire danger to democracy (the misnomer commonly applied to civil-libertarian constitutional-representative government). But when you see the spluttering, fulminating reaction of the institutional quasi-left the SCOTUS rejecting the right of state government officials to remove Trump from the ballot, you see that it is they who are the threat to democracy. They’re basically saying that the SCOTUS and the constitution should be torn down so that governance can be anything their fanatical ideology demands in that particular moment, and such a mindset is the genesis of totalitarian regimes.

    I have never much cared for Donald Trump’s personality, but I think it is becoming increasingly clear that a Trump victory in November is the only thing standing between the USA and becoming a total “banana republic”.

    I wonder how long Biden actually spoke, if you edited out the applause.
    5 minutes? 10? What a frigging waste of time that State of the Union was.

    Meanwhile, Putin gave a four hour Russian version, with a lot more substance and a lot less clapping. But he’s an evildoer, you see, so pay no attention to the contrast.

    Now the shitlibs want to get around the Supreme Court ruling by having Congress throw Trump off the ballot in every state, because…..democracy.
    Oh, and growing your own food in your garden is bad for the climate and should be outlawed also.

    Also, stopping children from being prescribed cancer drugs to stop their normal growth and development is an outrageous attack on trans children, who need those drugs to become their Authentic Selves.
    And closing the border is an assault on human rights.

          There is a geography to my dreams, certain places I go to over and over. (But I’ve never made it to Russia – despite trying often.) And even in my dreams I recognize this, and think of the places nearby that I visited in other dreams – but without realizing that I am in a dream.

People were saying the exact same thing Mr. Kuntlser says today 10 and 20 years ago, and even before that. In fact, and author named Gordon R. Dickson wrote a very good book about the US after a financial and social collapse, called Wolf and Iron, that was published in 1990. 34 years ago, saying the exact same thing as Mr. Kuntsler says today, the sky is falling, the US is about to collapse. . .it didn’t’ happen in 1990, it won’t happen in 2024, it may not happen in our lifetime.

      Now, having said all of that negative stuff, I love this blog and sincerely thank it author for posting it and allowing readers to comment on it. I strongly recommend his book series starting with World Made by Hand, I very much enjoyed those books. Again, I am not saying that he is wrong about America’s coming collapse, all I am saying is that there is no way to predict the timing of it, and saying it’s about to happen, real soon, day after day, month after month, decade after decade is not helpful. America absolutely could have fallen apart in the early 90’s as predicted in Gordon R. Dickson’s novel. It didn’t. America could absolutely collapse this summer. It won’t. I expect that someday there will be a series of Black Swan Events, perhaps an eruption of Yellowstone, or another big terrorist attack, or even a Cyberwarfare issue that knocks down our house of cards. I think there will be warning signs, for example a terrorist attack, followed by some other bad stuff happening over a period of days or weeks, leading to growing panic and an eventual collapse. Given that more and more states are legalizing the concealed carry fo firearms, I think that if people deicide it’s a great time to loot, riot, and cause mayhem a lot of citizens in a lot of suburbs will put them down, and not get robbed blind. A societal breakdown in a heavily armed country is very different than the chaos that ensued when only law enforcement and the military have firearms.

        “America could absolutely collapse this summer. It won’t.” ~ dilbert113

        Let me see if I understand your logic. No one can predict the timing of a collapse, but you can predict when things won’t collapse, is that it?

        One of us is confused, and I don’t think it’s me.

          I was trying to figure out how to say what you just said!

          It is easy to ridicule the warnings of others when one hasn’t a clue. Apparently some people just stroll through life without ever considering what may be just ahead, or further down the street, or at the end of the street that they are on. And they think they are the smart ones…

          But yeah – what you said.

      An understandable observation, except that the state of things in 2024 is exponentially worse than in 1990. The sky may not have fallen yet, but there’s a lot less headroom than there used to be.

      How do I know, but I feel good about Martin Armstrong’s opinions and he says that the dollar will stay strong for some time to come. At the same time I do feel that the US will divide along Red/Blue lines so I’m doing my best to pull up stakes and move within the year; hopefully I’ll be hunkering down in a Red State when it all really starts unraveling.

      North Dakota has a State Bank (completely separate from the Fed) and other states are trying to do the same thing. So perhaps things might be able to stay semi-normal in states that authentically respect one’s rights.

      You can’t really blame Kunstler though, I understand where he’s coming from. I mean was things as bad as they were back in the 1990s? The answer is NO! Things are a hell of a lot worse today. For one did we have mass open borders in the 1990s? NO! Was the U.S. provoking Russia and trying to start WWIII? NO! We’re dealing with a lot more serious issues now vs then. Therefore I can understand why Kunstler write up the things he write up.

      In terms of a man’s life, yes, the coming dark has been slow and many have been wrong in the timing. But in historic or societal terms, the oncoming dark has been swift in deed. First slowly, then faster, then all at once!

    Stuck in the middle with you…..looking at members of the Supreme Court with clowns on the left and jokers on the right ….I’m sure a few thought something ain’t right

    Last night was of course embarrassing for a Nation but not this one anymore…if there’ ever was one speech that should have been ripped to shreds….it was this one …but instead got many head nods of approval from Speaker Johnson…..shameful starts with him….looks like decorum will only work on one side now…..

    • JohnAZ March 8, 2024 at 12:58 pm #

      Quite to the contrary, Johnson sort of apologized on Fox interview for disparaging looks he kept showing. That actually pissed me off as that pathetic excuse for a president deserved many many more. The Conservatives need to learn to attack viciously and widely like the Dems do.

      • JohnAZ March 8, 2024 at 1:00 pm #

        If I was Johnson I would have dropped trou at the end of the speech, left a steaming pile right on the desk, placed the SOTU speech copy in said pile, and proceeded to light it aflame. This would have best conveyed our message about how Biden and his ilk are viewed.

    Did you see New York AG Letitia James commanding her audience to “simmer down”. They booed her and chanted “Trump Trump Trump”. The fireman and policeman weren’t havin’ it. The anger is heating up against The Legion of the Moronic, but they seem fully entrenched in their entrainment coma. Their eyes possess a dissociative glare. Under puppets Hochul, Fani, Biden and many on the left, bought by Marxist Globalists, they’ve got their marching orders and seem their goin’ for it. It would be funny to watch, if it weren’t trending every moment toward a tragic and certain outcome.

    There’s some awful times ahead for these people(consider Fulton Fani’s comeuppance down south) as the pendulum swings and the reaction from the other side unspools. These dimwits are believing for an infinite regression scenario, but the malaise has been marinating in the quiet souls of good people since COVID. The losses on the left are just beginning. Reality works that way.

    2024 is my year of hunker down into avoidance. I prefer an observe, non violent, pray without ceasing approach. Coupled with a few drinks and long walks in the woods with my dog, it’s my bliss in dystopia.

    I’m well-aware that truth and reality will not be managed indefinitely by incompetent fools, but they are necessary for contrasts, which will serve us well as we get through this.

    God’s left hand is a necessary implement to usher in the unfolding of His Right Handed Lamb, which is in the midst of the throne.

        If you asked the Gnostics, they would have told you that the One we call YHWH, Jehovah, or Allah is actually an evil demi-urge. I tend to agree.

        Anyone “jealous and vengeful” is imperfect, and therefore not “God”. (“I wanna talk to your boss!”)

        What we have done is to make a man of the Creator. And, knowing nothing else, have made It in our own – flawed – image.

        We are like a lens, through which – on one side – shines the Creator, while on the other side the image comes out diminished and inverted. It is that distorted image that we revere.

        And yet, even this broken religion – the Judeo-Christian tradition – can be beneficial for some. I have known Christians – not many, but a few – who were truly sainted people, despite what I consider to be their fatally flawed religion, and actually because of their faith.

        You asked, and you received.

          JohnAZ, you’re a moron…Once a moron, always a moron. Also, do some research you old crank, if you’re going to be talking about cognition you should at least use the correct terms. Alzheimers is not Lewy Body. Dementia is not Alzheimers, but Alzheimers is always Dementia. I know it’s hard to understand, but with a little bit of reading and studying you might be able to figure it out. But you seem to be sliding as well so it could be tough for you.

            You are a know it all fool.

            I never said they were the same, I have had two relatives that one had Alzheimer’s and the other Lewy Body. The One with Lewy body lasted a typical two years after onset, the one with Alzheimer’s 25 years.

            Dementia is a dysfunction of the brain, a build up of scar type proteins. What type of dementia depends on where it strikes, Lewy Body in these nuclei, Alzheimer’s in the Frontal and Temporal lobes, Parkinson’s in the motor center at the brain base.

            Kbird, you talk like a moron, a much younger one. One day you will acquire the wisdom and knowledge to know THF you are talking about.

            No Johnaz, you still don’t understand. I’m a hospice nurse, So I know full well about Dementia.. Anger is not a stage of Alzheimers…When you say that, you say it as an absolute. It happens to some, not all. He shows zero signs of Lewy body. The problem with you magrats…Trump is a bumbling, slurring, enraged fool in his speaches…but you’re too far down the rabbit hole to see that. You see him as your King. Trump clearly has Dementia.

            Good for you for being a nurse.

            I WAS ALSO, taking care of gerontological patients in telemetry units.

            As I said, my mother in law had Alzheimer’s and anger is definitely a stage of its decline. Old feelings of hurt come forward and without the inhibition of the frontal lobe, Alzheimer’s patient harbor deep anger and can become violent at times, like my relative did.

            Your ignorance belies you if you do not recognize Biden as progressing quickly into the second stages of dementia, his Parkinsonian gait, his stuttering speech, lapses of memory.

            Trump proves himself by being smarter than and putting down all the foolish Deep Staters that think they can break him.

            Johnaz, let’s try this again…Once more, anger is not always a stage of Alzheimers. It can occur in any type of Dementia…but not always. Years of being a hospice nurse, I’ve cared for many alzheimers patients and Anger is NOT ALWAYS part of it. It’s possible, but not a guarantee.

          • JohnAZ March 8, 2024 at 2:20 pm #

            Honey, as I said, I’m a Hospice nurse, so yes I do know what Lewy Body Disease is, all too well. You are wrong, Alzheimers is NOT a blanket term. If we use your wordage, blanket term, Dementia is the blanket term and Alzheimers is a TYPE of dementia. There are many types of Dementia.

            I’m not sure what you are trying to do here but I’ll try one more time.. Of course I know what commonly means. Here, I’ll use it in a sentence for you. “The word Alzheimers, is commonly used incorrectly. Alzheimers is a type of Dementia, dementia is not a type of Alzheimers. People use the word wrong ALL the time. Just because people use it all the time, or as you say, they commonly use it as a blanket term. It is incorrect. Dementia is the blanket term, and then there are the types of Dementia, not the other way around.

    I saw a clip of a speech he gave a year or so ago in which he was so sped up that he did not even blink. Perhaps they sent him out without the clonazepam. Perhaps the slurring is an acceptable trade-off to his handlers.

    ” All of that could easily be muted by what looks like a dollar and bond market crisis shaping up on the financial scene in the spring days ahead.”

    When analyzing the potential and timing for different types of financial crises, it is important to keep in mind that our political and financial elites are also constantly learning and identifying vulnerabilities and levers for the attempted containment of any channels of collapse in the institutions they directly manage.

    For example, the US Treasury Market ($26 trillion in size) is the mechanism by which the Federal Reserve executes monetary policy and through which the U.S. government borrows as well as promotes dollar leadership throughout the world.

    On a number of occasions in the past few years (the 2019 Repo crisis and the March 2020 Treasury market meltdown due to covid) emergency interventions from the Federal Reserve and the New York Fed were required. (See Financial Times)

    These interventions led to studies by the Fed, the Treasury Dept., and the Securities and Exchange Commission that recommended changes in Treasury market plumbing to minimize financial disruptions (the creation of a clearing house, or third party, to offer oversight and protection of bond market investors and traders as well as a new attempt to bring high speed treasury traders and some hedge funds under closer scrutiny.

    If anyone is interested in getting into the financial weeds on these issues let me know and we could plumb these depths together (I am largely self-taught).

    Things are really getting serious now and it is time for each of us to also gain as much detailed knowledge about the levers of financial containment as well as the possible pathways to financial collapse.

    • JohnAZ March 8, 2024 at 2:11 pm #

      Okay Jim, here is one.

      All these rescue missions the Fed does is to flood the money market with Fiat dollars when something collapses and the money just evaporates.


      So, in my eyes, it seems that the increase in worthless dollars from ball outs plus the increase in the national debt creating a larger “hole” to fill every year, is leading the country to fiscal perdition.

      Bailing out market foibles seems to me to be foolish in the long run.

      • jim March 8, 2024 at 4:10 pm #

        Hey JohnAZ, one way to answer your excellent question is to look at a concrete financial incident that recently happened (the Covid crisis and the role of the Fed in stabilizing the U.S. Treasury market)

        When the Fed acts dramatically, it is usually to stop or attempt to contain panic in a particular financial market which is in the process of throwing into doubt the value of a particular “safe asset” in that market.

        On March 10 of 2020, sales of Treasuries were so significant they drove the price of all U.S. Treasuries down and their yields up. This continued through March 12 when the Fed tried to address the problem by flooding the repo market with $1.5 trillion.

        This move was successful in the sense of bringing the repo rate down, but it didn’t directly address the still accelerating selling pressure in the Treasury market as a whole and Treasury yields continued to rise calling into question whether U.S. Treasuries themselves could be treated as “safe assets.” The value of this “safe asset” was continuing to drop in a 26 trillion dollar market.

        From March 15 to March 17, the Fed took additional dramatic action to contain this process–providing liquidity to the banking system, opening swap lines with 5 other central banks, restarting quantitative easing, re-opening crisis programs to lend to investment banks against collateral and to help non-financial corporations to borrow on commercial paper markets. But, even so, yields on U.S. Treasuries rose through March 18.

        To make a longer story short, on March 23 the Federal Reserve then expanded its support of the repo market and the entire U.S. Treasury market even more, by verbally stating it stood ready to buy U.S. Treasuries in unlimited amounts (fiat dollars) and at all maturities.

        This lender of last resort announcement finally stopped the panic selling in repos and in U.S. Treasuries and things returned to “normal”–the price of U.S. Treasuries stopped falling with the realization by all market participants of unlimited fiat money being potentially available to stabilize the price of all U.S. Treasuries worldwide.

        How do you conceive of these so-called worthless dollars leading our country to fiscal perdition?

      Capitalism ends with a relative few people owning everything. An utterly flawed system. As the real guys say, competition is for suckers. Nobody gets rich alone anymore. Very few ever did in any case.

      But dream on guys. Or we can wise up so this nightmare never rises again. Too late for this America of course.

      • BackRowHeckler March 8, 2024 at 2:39 pm #

        I’m not sure about that, Jarek. Theodore Roosevelt thought the same thing. A book came out around 1900 called ‘The Octopus’ by Frank Norris, about the Southern Pacific RR, who at the time pretty much owned everything that mattered in California. They controlled entire economy out there. But things change, new people, new technologies, different laws and ways of doing things … SPRR still exists but it certainly isn’t the monolith — the Octopus with its tentacles into everything — that it was 125 years ago.

          The Elite decided against the railroads as many here have talked about. No doubt many of those owners were warned and able to move into other ventures. Don’t worry about them, buddy. Worry about us.

          One English minister wrote about how he used to preach against racism to his small ever dwindling congregation. It was only after decades of this that he realized that his people, the White Christians, were dying and if things didn’t change, would be gone in another generation. No one cared about them, only the “new people”. He realized what an utter fool he had been. Just a mouthpiece of the system in very precincts of the holy. Uttering the word “racism” in church to his downtrodden flock, oppressed parishioners. What a disgrace. But he awakened. Most never do.

            In Frankfort Germany, city is going balls in for Ramadan this year, all kinds of events, decorations, ceremonies; the Mayor is an Iranian woman. In Frankfort I understand Christmas references have been banned, Christmas festivals discouraged, any kind of public Christmas displays strongly frowned upon. Some ethnic Germans try to sneak one in by calling it Winter Celebration.. The Iranian Mayor & the Islamic city council says Not So Fast bigot, my Muslim electorate is offended. And that’s that.

            Watched a funny Prison Planet video “Looking for the last White Man in London”. It took a lot of searching before they found a few White guys, but one was Albanian, the other was from Romania. No English dudes.

            It all happened so fast, only about 20 years. Can’t say Enoch Powell did not warn them, tho.

Is not Sunday the first day of the week? Bring your ties and your offerings on the first day of the week. But judge no man on his keeping of the Sabbath.
            Every day is the Sabbath day. Every day is Christmas. Please go out and do some shopping.
            The day begins when? Midnight? Sunset? Sunrise?
            AND his name ain’t JESUS.

        The following quote has been sometimes attributed to Ben Franklin and at other times to Alexander Fraser Tytler (most agree it was NOT Franklin):

        “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.”

        We seem to be at the cusp between the loose fiscal policy and dictatorship.
        How many are looking forward to a monarchy?

      I hold 8 week T-Bills which I bought on-line at Treasury Direct.
      Current yield is 5.4%. Each individual is allowed to buy $10,000 annually. A company is also allowed to buy $10,000 annually.
      Interest is exempt from any local or state taxes.

      A good overview article is here:

      A yield chart and forecast is here:

      It is important to continually rollover and re-invest to take advantage of compound interest, the greatest known force in the universe!

      • jim March 8, 2024 at 8:19 pm #

        Smart move. But I don’t believe there is any limit on the $ amount of Treasuries purchased through Treasury Direct.

        For the past year I have personally laddered 6 month treasuries through Treasury Direct with no risk and a juicy 5.5% average interest yield return.

        As long as inflation stays elevated I like this play (it is something for the little guy).

        Of course holding some gold also seems worthwhile even though gold, until quite recently, was only up 14% from where it was 13 years ago–and it doesn’t pay interest–so some significant risk for not so hot return.

        • Yirgach March 8, 2024 at 9:55 pm #

          Not sure where the 10K limit came from. The initial rate was 9% but it obviously varies.
          I also have a 5.6% savings account at Everbank, but it is not exempt from state and local tax and like the Treasuries it is not a guaranteed fixed rate.

          Gotta be nimble. While gold does not pay an an interest rate,it is quite volatile and therefore tradeable and much more manageable than the securities casino.

    As the 2nd Amendment correctly decrees, a well-regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free nation. Even Alexander Hamilton wrote that nothing is more harmful to freedom than a standing army in times of peace. Hence, we should start re-funding the local police and de-funding the US professional military. Otherwise we won’t be free much longer.

    • JohnAZ March 8, 2024 at 2:16 pm #

      Very good observation. Back then, each state had its militia that could be called upon by the Feds for common fighting. The Civil War had militias from all states, eg. The 20th Maine with Chamberlain that saved the day at Little Big Top. Individual states contributed to the Spanish American war.

      Today, National Guard are the militias that have been absconded by the Federal Government when needed.

    @BRH – I found this comment concerning last evening’s link:


    “980 trillion dollars is three times the amount it would take to pay off all national debts of the entire world. Most people do not think there is that much money in the world. But credit is not the same as money. Credit has to be monetized in order to be spent as money. Hence, the source of government borrowing has dried up, sending “shockwaves through the highest echelons of power.”

    Does this distinction have merit?

    Apparently today is “International Women’s Day” or some such nonsense, which means that I’m morally obliged to repost my essay on the terminal societal cancer that is women’s suffrage.
    (Notes for after the war, Gentlemen. -AB ’24.)

    “Anyone who knows anything of history knows that great social changes are impossible without feminine upheaval. Social progress can be measured exactly by the social position of the fair sex, the ugly ones included.”
    -Karl Marx
    Do you know when things really started to go – literally – to hell in this country? When women were given the right to vote separate and apart from their husbands. What a disaster. This is when the war against marriage and the family began in earnest – and it has taken less than 100 years for both institutions to be almost completely destroyed. And it all started with the damn suffrage, specifically the 19th Amendment in the United States.

    Here’s the deal. Up until women’s suffrage, a man was the head of his marriage and his household, and his vote represented not just himself but his entire family, including his wife and his children. When men voted, they were conscious of the fact that they were voting not just for themselves and their own personal interests, but they were also charged with the responsibility of discerning and making the ultimate decision about what was in the best interests of their entire family. Wow. Isn’t that nuts? Men being . . . responsible?

    As soon as the 19th amendment was passed, men were effectively castrated, and in many, many cases disenfranchised by their wives. No longer was the man the head of the household. No longer was he responsible for his wife. Now the wife was a “co-husband” at best, or a flat-out adversary at worst. The notion of a man making the final decision about what was best for his wife and family per his God-given vocation as husband and father was now over. Now all he was good for was bringing home the bacon – but even that wouldn’t last.

    Women are made with a healthy, innate desire to be provided for and protected. I know this because I am a woman, despite the pair of enormous brass balls I have to carry around. Those are merely an anomaly. Back to the point, women want someone or someTHING to take care of them. For this reason, women tend to lean socialist, and are generally in favor of the expansion of government when the government promises to “provide” for them.

    If you have read me for any length of time you could probably write this next paragraph yourself. Satan has used this healthy feminine dynamic, perverted by suffrage, to systematically replace men with the government as the providers in society. A woman no longer has any need of a man. Marriage no longer serves any practical purpose. A woman can whore around and have as many fatherless children as she pleases, and Pimp Daddy Government will always be there to provide. Men have learned well from this, too. Men can also horndog it up to their groin’s content knowing that the government will take care of their “women” and raise their children for them. Fathering children no longer binds a man to a woman in any way. Men didn’t vote to societally castrate themselves, and never would have. No – in order for this system to have come about, women’s suffrage was an absolute necessity. Women themselves voted the system into place which objectifies and devalues both them AND their children.

    Next, the issue of disenfranchisement. I believe that the 19th amendment actually DISenfranchised more people than it enfranchised. Many, many married couples quickly found themselves voting against one another. The man would tend to vote for the more conservative platform, and the woman would vote for the more socialist platform. When this happened, the effective result was the nullification of BOTH individuals’ votes. What this did was massively reduce the voting influence of the married household, and magnify the voting influence of the unmarried – and the unmarried tend to be younger, and thus more stupid, and thus vote for big government. It was all part of the plan, kids. All part of the plan.

    Those dishes aren’t going to wash themselves, Girls.

    Those dishes aren’t going to wash themselves, Girls.

    I’ve probably ticked even one or two of you conservatives off with this post. Here is the question I would ask you: Why? Why are you ticked off? If you’re a woman, the reason you are ticked off is because you put yourself and your desire to assert your will above the well-being of society in general. I don’t feel that way. I would give up my vote in a HEARTBEAT if it meant that right-ordered marriage, family and sexuality were restored to our culture. I would rather that little girls today grow up in a world where they did not have the so-called “right” (voting is NOT a right) to vote, but were treated with dignity and respect, were addressed as “ma’am”, had doors held for her, and wherein men stood up when she entered the room. I would rather she be courted properly and then marry a man who would never, ever leave her, and would consider it his sacred duty and honor to protect and provide for her and their children because he LOVED them. Oh, HELL yes. I’ll give up my vote in exchange for that any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Why wouldn’t you?

    For you men who don’t like my position, you’re just a slave to political correctness and feminist (read: LESBIAN) wokism. It’s the same thing as the rap music. No one will criticize rap music because it is forbidden by the P.C. woke culture to criticize a non-white cultural phenomenon. To do so is “rayciss”. It’s the same with this. The P.C. woke culture has convinced you that if you criticize anything that has to do with women or the feminine culture that you must be a Taliban or a “fascist”. Don’t fall for that garbage. That manipulation is why sixty-five million babies have been murdered in this country over the last fifty years. Men knew that abortion was murder, but they punted on it and eventually legalized it because they didn’t want to be accused of being “misogynistic”. Filthy cowards.

    So there you go. Print it, save it, PDF it. Because I acknowledge the objective reality and massively disordered consequences of female suffrage, am able to see beyond my own immediate self-interests on the matter, and have the stones to say it all publicly, I am permanently disqualified from . . . pretty much everything outside self-employment.

    What a world.

    Jarek: As Ann says, Notes for after the war, gentlemen. It’s too late for this America. But it’s not too late or too early to start planning for the next one (if any). No feminine suffrage. Suffer the women not to come unto the polling stations. What else? One people and culture – ours. Every man a soldier. Why not carry your rifle with you when you go to vote like the Swiss used to do. Why? Because you can. A flex!

    But we don’t want thugs voting. Being a soldier is only part of it. You have to care enough to study our system, history, issues, and current events. And be able to converse or write intelligently about them. Almost all men are thus excluded – nay, many exclude themselves. So only the few and the rightfully proud will get to vote. As it should be. Such men will look back on our sad experiment and shake their noble heads in dismay and amazement. How could such stupidity have happened? By God, it’s not going to happen again.

    I love you, Ann.

    Mr. Kunstler,

    “…bring on the chaos needed for martial law and cancellation of the election”

    Yup, could definitely happen. Military aged illegals wrecking havoc in the U.S. of A, in my opinion, should be taken seriously. Judging from last night’s sotu address, the Party of Chaos is not really doing a thing to hide their highly probable very dark intentions. Although, we know there are around 80 million Americans who do not want to see chaos created by that party. The (at least) 80 million are pretty quiet. I tend to think there are also, working in the same buildings as the Party of Chaos, citizens who might also quietly be preparing to right some of the upcoming wrongs. This shite can quietly become pretty damn serious. As November approaches, there’s a real likelihood the shite will begin to hit the fan.

    It was the night Biden bellowed. It was truly horrible, a blaring Biden beaming after the speech, as if he really was in command and control, although on this occasion he did appear to take the helm firmly in his grasp while still steering the ship into the rocks. Sycophants practically bowed before ‘his travesty’.

    Biden opened up another January 6th gift, the Democrats ecstatic that this gift just keeps on giving, allowing them to show the American people over and over again how they ‘saved Democracy’. I knew from the day it happened that it was a mindless, destructive disaster. But fed up is fed up, and anger is anger, and shit happens.

    Katie Britt’s rebuttal could have been better in its delivery. The constant forced smile and dreadful dramatics were cringe inducing.

    Keep Biden ‘stimulated’ at the right times, and he could win this thing, God forbid. Three reasons why:

    1. Greater unity and ability to ‘gather’ votes.
    2. The effectiveness of the Left’s lies and brainwashing.
    3. The gullibility of the American people.

    TRAITOR Biden gave the almost exact same State of the Union speech last night that he gave a year ago–much of it word for word. That’s most likely because that is all that he has the mental capacity to read of off the teleprompter. In the only impromptu moment, he committed the leftist’s most dreaded faux pas–calling illegal aliens invading the U.S. “illegals” instead of “undocumented,” or “newcomers.” Then mispronouncing the name of Lakin Riley, a the lovely young woman murdered in cold blood by an illegal alien that Biden and the Democrat swine allowed to enter the U.S. unfettered. Biden is a piece of shit, and anyone who thinks otherwise is a piece of shit. Period.

    Now, as to what is coming, it’s going to be ugly. The more likely it looks that Trump and the GOP may win the 2024 election, the more violent and tyrannical the Communist/Socialist/Fascist Democrat Party and its violent surrogate thugs are going to get. The biggest thing that conservatives must learn is that there is no negotiating with violent, anti-freedom, pro-dictatorship Democrat thugs. I would no more negotiate with the Democrat Party elite than I would have with Hitler–to both, their country’s citizenry would only exist as small, freedomless cogs whose sole reason for existence is to support and perpetrate the governing elite. The Democrat thugs must simply be told to get lost, go away, and retreat. And, when they don’t–and they won’t–and the Democrat thugs actually violently attack their opponents (and they will), then make the thugs pay the full price for their evil. Let the Democrat thugs make the first punch, then make sure that it is their last one.

        I trust true conservatives more than any Democrat. Unfortunately, there are plenty of posers in the Republican Party. Those posers are more concerned about getting re-elected than they are living up to conservative ideals. The problem with Democrats today is that their whole party platform and “ideals” are are, themselves, purely evil. A “failure” politician in today’s Democrat Party is one who actually who believes in honesty, fairness, freedom, and justice. Believing in any of that will get you “excommunicated” from today’s Democrat Party. Being a Democrat with scruples is like trying to survive as a fragrant rose in a pile of shit.

        I spent years as both a Republican elected official and as a high level state appointed official. I saw plenty of posers. I held myself to one overriding standard that made me what some would say is a poor politician. It is this: I would rather lose my job or lose than election for doing the right thing than keeping my job or winning an election by doing the wrong thing. I took my dear mother’s advice, “To thine own self be true.”

      Look at how easy it was for “the authorities” to confiscate firearms after Katrina, in New Orleans (where one would tend to expect a less pussified obedience from the local coon-asses).

      Big Guv is wise enough to keep soldiers’ families fed and clothed long after the hapless electorate is left standing in the freezing rain with nothing except its dick in its hand.

      The rise of a populist Jesse Ventura could turn some commanding officers into a counter-force, but they’d get arkancided long before they could organize a free militia.

      And then there are the White Helmets, whom the elite would have no problem with inviting in to subdue a troublesome citizenry.

    The Arizona Republic

    Aspirin between the knees as birth control? Is this GOP leader dumb or merely insulting?

    Gov. Katie Hobbs on Thursday held a largely performative news conference, calling on the Arizona Legislature to pass a state law guaranteeing women the right to contraception.

    Of course, the Republican-run Legislature isn’t about to pass a law guaranteeing that women can remain in control of their own bodies, and Hobbs knows it.

    What she may not have known is that women, apparently, have an alternative to birth control pills and other forms of contraception.

    Leave it to none other than Senate Majority Leader Sonny Borrelli to mansplain our options.

    “Like I said, Bayer Company invented aspirin,” he told Arizona Mirror’s Gloria Rebecca Gomez. “Put it between your knees.”

    Borrelli didn’t indicate how that aspirin between the knees would help women with polycystic ovaries, endometriosis, premenstrual issues or even pregnancy. (Perhaps he ought to give the Kama Sutra a look?)

    But the Lake Havasu City Republican went on to assure Gomez that there’s no plan afoot to deny women access to contraceptives.

    “They’re creating a controversy that doesn’t exist because nobody’s opposing — nobody has any kind of plan to ban any contraceptives,” he said.

    On the day after the Republican Party had a woman deliver its response to the State of Union speech from her kitchen …

    In the weeks after the Alabama Supreme Court ruled that an embryo in a freezer is a baby, briefly threatening access to invitro fertilization

    You’ll have to excuse a fair number of women if we’re looking for more than Borrelli’s assurances that a plot won’t suddenly surface to tell us yet again what we can — or cannot — do with our bodies.

    Meanwhile, we’ve got the Arizona Supreme Court pondering whether an 1864 territorial law that makes abortion a crime — even in the case of rape and incest — is now state law in Arizona.

    So, yeah, color me not so reassured by Borrelli’s assurance that a woman’s right to have children at a time of her choosing is not at risk by the far-right fringe that has taken over the Republican Party.

    Is Borrelli an outlier among Republicans?
    Strange, that there would be time to hear a bill that would strip us of our right to decide who should be president but no time for a bill that guarantees our right to control our own bodies.

    “It begs the question: Why won’t they codify this basic freedom into law? What do they have against allowing us to have control over our own bodies and access to basic health care?”

    It’s a good question.

    As for Borrelli, I’m not sure if he’s representative of the Senate Republicans who elected him their leader or if he’s just a ‘50s throwback, alone in his apparent belief that promiscuous women are the cause of all that is wrong with society.

    In the (slim) hope that he does stand alone in his beliefs, I have a suggestion to Republicans, if they want to have any hope of clinging to their one-vote majority this fall.

    Stick an aspirin between the lips of your Senate majority leader.

    Yeah, Katie Britt’s rebuttal comes from the KITCHEN. Lol.

    Whatever you think about the abortion issue, it will cost the Republicans millions of votes.

      Way back in my 20’s, I was mildly “pro choice.” I believed then, and I still believe now, that there are many, many people who are wholly unfit to be parents. But, I just could not get past the idea that too many women were using abortion solely as a means of birth control–often at the insistence of their boyfriend/husband/hook-up partner.

      I am wholly in favor of availability of contraception methods–that is devices, drugs, or surgery to PREVENT conception. However, once conception occurs, a new life, a new human being has been created. And aborting a conceived fetus amounts to killing a human being. No amount of fancy words, deceptive descriptions, etc. can change that basic reality.

      The legislator’s comment about “aspirin between the knees” is a euphemism for “abstinence.” Women (and men) may not like it, but there are only two 100% effective methods for contraception–abstinence and sterilization.

      A society that is willing to murder its unwanted unborn children will eventually become a society willing to murder it unwanted born children, and will eventually become a society willing to murder its own unwanted adults.

      • JohnAZ March 8, 2024 at 6:40 pm #

        Yes, socialist hater.

        The whole abortion issue boils down on first order to when is a fetus a person, a human being, separate from its mother to be. At that point, the state has the responsibility to respect the rights of the unborn, to guarantee its right to LIFE, Liberty and the Pursuit.

        A statement of the condition of today’s American morality is that women are able to condone the murder of a human being in vitro, the fetuses are not Mom, but human beings in their own right.

        IMHO, I have always felt that women are the Givers of Life and men are the Takers of Life. Today’s ladies are a contradiction to that, they have turned into murderesses, willing to kill to avoid nine months of inconvenience. And yes, nine months as services exist to move on with unwanted babies.

        Late term abortion is horrendous, The head of the fetus must be crushed to remove the child. Any person who knows this procedure and does it is as close to a monster as I can imagine.

        Rape babies, and mother’s health babies need to be decided early on and dealt with. Pregnancy detectors work days after conception, and day after pregnancy pills make control of these two exceptions to the rule easy to exercise.

        We have developed a society here where abortion is THE answer to a woman’s inability to control her own reproduction urges. Mother Nature makes sure both sexes are in the game as procreation is the number one responsibility of the species. There are so many contraception tools to avoid the problem in the first place. The aspirin solution is full of holes as natural urges are never suppressed with logic.

        Guys, get a grip, Pokealady, that kid is your responsibility. A good solution to the abortion situation may be the old fashioned shotgun aimed at male groins when Dads find out their daughters are preggers.

        Leftists want abortion as it allows women to follow to pathway to immorality that the Left wants to follow. Drugs, porn, free sex, gambling, slavery, all immorality is the goal of the Liberal society to keep up the dependence on the central government for morality guidance.

        The Black population in cities is a perfect example. Men do not have the feeling of responsibility to the kids they create. Women with kids without husbands are totally dependent on the government. The government loves it.

    It is majorly cringe worthy sad to see an elderly and confused man trying desperately to not look so… elderly and confused.

    All that plastic surgery. All that squinting. All that anger that this man harbors for us and our Nation for not recognizing him as the Greatest President of all Time. Sorry pal, you are and will remain just what you have been… ‘Resident’ Biden.

    All of those ‘substances’ that must have kept him standing erect and able to read the teleprompter for what seemed to be an eternity. All of those jack-in-the-box lackeys jumping up and down and clapping wildly like seals at all the utter nonsense that he was reading that was written for him. And all those Democrat lackeys also looking pathetic in their pitiful attempt to prop this man up.

    ‘America has never been stronger (?)’… it was declared. Sorry, never did America look so needy, lost, and pathetic.

    Our Nation is a complete mess. And we’d be lucky if there were a dozen people in that room who actually know how effed up America is. Denial is not just a River in Egypt but the way the government of United States Incorporated functions. Lies… pretending… and horse manure. That’s the true fuel of US Inc… not old coal and oil or pretend energy sources like wind and solar.

    To solve a problem you first must admit you have one. And that room full of fakers and grifters cannot admit there are problems because this would reflected badly on their ‘leadership’ capabilities and results which are, of course, pathetic. And so… no solutions for America since no one will admit there are problems.

    All Resident Biden needed for that Address was a backing-track of music of ‘Happy Days Are Here Again!’. But the only backing music that America – at least the half that is still somewhat sane – could hear is the Castaways classic…

    “Liar, Liar, Pants on fire… Your nose is longer than a telephone wire…”

    And today as such, Resident Biden’s elderly schnozz reaches from the Swamp of Washington, DC to his bosses in Tel Aviv and to US Inc’s branch office in the Ukraine to the dear friends and benefactors of ‘The Big Guy’ in China.

    That’s one dang long nose dong.

    It will take few days from the stench of that sad display of clapping seals and squinting seniors to clear out a bit. Just long enough for the stench of a new coming election that no one wants to see to start to hit our own laboring olfactory sinuses.

    Want to survive the rest of the year? Holding our own noses would be a great start. And watching a once great Nation continue to devolve into a brother-and-sisterhood of chaos.

    Want to cheer yourself up a bit? Look into the closest mirror you can find. And the face staring back at you is of a person who is better qualified to sit in the White House than the elderly man with telephone-wire nose who is sitting there now.

    And you don’t need any overpaid clapping seals to tell you that.

      “We’d be lucky if there were a dozen people in that room who actually know how effed up America is.”

      I don’t think Bobby Jr. or Trump even know either.

      • BackRowHeckler March 8, 2024 at 4:52 pm #

        I’d like to see Bobby jr. get some traction.

        I wonder if he’d find room in his Administration for JHK? In the early days of the Republc, up to about the 1830s and beyond, it was common for authors to get political appointments. (Novelist) John P. Kennedy was named Secretary of the Navy, Washington Irving was Ambassador to Spain, and Teddy Roosevelt was primarily an author and historian when McKinley appointed him Undersecretary of the Navy.

        • Beryl of Oyl March 8, 2024 at 6:21 pm #

          Bobby Jr. must be getting traction, because now various fiends from Hell connected to politics or the MSM are trying to paint his declaration that he knew Epstein and other controversial people as a confession to being abnormal or something.

          Jake Tapper had this snarky thing to say:

          “Quite a guest list!”

          Can someone tell me why an alleged reporter like Jake is mocking and passing judgement on a presidential front-runner?

          People like Rick Wilson hang out with other people like Rick Wilson.

          What a bunch of sickos.

          BTW Jr. has his own State Of The Union message up at his X site.

          • BackRowHeckler March 8, 2024 at 6:49 pm #

            Everybody who was anybody knew Epstein, apparently. Epstein’s business, other than the trafficking & molesting underage girls, was pursuing pedigreed, wealthy and accomplished people. I’m not surprised he latched onto a Kennedy, which he probably did by making a sizable donation to one of Kennedy’s environmental projects. Epstein himself never amounted to much; it’s still not even clear where his money came from. There is still a lot to come out about this Jeffrey Epstein character.

          • Roundball Shaman March 8, 2024 at 6:50 pm #

            Beryl of Oyl: “Bobby Jr. must be getting traction, because now various fiends from Hell…”.

            There is a big spiritual/karmic dynamic as to what is playing out politically in America in 2024.

            Trump represents the old-style-type rich guy and personification of the American Dream of being wealthy and powerful (the old robber-baron type). He has also positioned himself to represent the anger and frustrations of Middle America and the middle and blue collar classes of Americans who have been forgotten and marginalized to gain political capital.

            Biden represents the American population that has gone Communist and bat-crap crazy and who crave a full-on dictatorship by and for The Left. In short, the people who hate America and real Americans.

            And RFK Jr. has both a National and a family karmic drama going. There is a huge karmic debt owed to him and his extended family because of what has been done to them in our National history and who it was that did it to them. In short, there is a karmic debt owed to them for the horrible losses both personally and politically that they have endured… and by extension, what the American People have suffered and endured due to the erasure of these unique major public figures that would have reshaped America and who would never have allowed America to turn into today had they lived.

            We know these were not perfect men. But no man or woman is. It’s about how they felt about this Country and their perfected vision of it that they were working to manifest. And that is why they were taken out.

            So there is in fact a major karmic debt owed to the Kennedy family… and to all of America. A gaping, empty hole of wrong and violation that must be rectified.

            How and when this debt and the restitution for it plays out is anyone’s guess – both for the Kennedy family and for America. But Karma is not mocked and always wins in the end… somehow.

            “So there is in fact a major karmic debt owed to the Kennedy family… and to all of America. A gaping, empty hole of wrong and violation that must be rectified.:

            I am currently reading Hersch’s “The Dark Side of Camelot” It reads like the National Enquirer. Seymour suggests that JFK not only had many, many (MANY) trysts while in the White House, but actually had a procurer as a personal assistant, and was constantly suffering and being treated for various venereal diseases contracted with the “gaping, empty holes” encountered.

            The Secret Service details were appalled.

            He further suggests that the progeny of Joe Sr. were born to privilege, who felt the laws, mores, and customs of the country to them did not apply.

    Tucker Carlson summed up the whole pitiful State of the Union last night. To sum up Carlson’s summary:

    The Democrat-led Blob want a dictatorship, they will do ANYTHING to get it.

    The Democrats are conducting full genocidal war against America’s children–they want them aborted before they are born, castrated and neutered when they are children, and subjugated, persecuted, impoverished, controlled, and–if necessary–killed as adults if they dare question the Democrat regime.

    Democrats and few RINO Republicans would prefer a full-scale World War III and likely nuclear annihilation in order to keep the military-industrial complex humming, and to protect their Fascist corporatist interests who have pledged their total allegiance to the Democrat regime in exchange for favorable government treatment.

    Not since Hitler’s National Socialist Workers Party–the Nazis–has there been a political party so determined to lead a country to national suicide, destruction, and annihilation as is the 2024 Democrat Party. They are vile, evil human filth.

          I can see that. I wonder if a good description of this phenomenon is plateau people. They are happy or content or maybe resigned to the level on which they are. Honestly, it’s hard for me to imagine. Because I feel like I gravitate to wanting to go to a higher plane. You are similar. So it is difficult or basically impossible to not push back or have something to say. I’ve also tried activism to an extent in my own experience. But fighting take a lot of energy and it is that much harder when a lot of people are not around. So it can all be a bad feedback loop too.

      Investors are no longer buying what the private Federal Reserve banking cartel is trying to sell them.

    Wish they would stop that and call it a no party ticket, the alternative to the corruption of the Deep State.

    This could be the rise of a counter party to the uniparty of the Deep State. One hopes.

      How would a third party get elected though if voting doesn’t count in the first place? Suppose the third party member won, who gets to select whether or not they get to be President? Do the lobbyist still have control over that? Trump was never serious about breaking them up. He talks a lot about what he plans to do. “If you put me back in the white house again, I promise you I will do this, I will end that, I will go after them, etc” It’s one of the main reasons why I never ever bothered to vote because these people are never serious.

      John I think I saw that they were a false front.

      I will keep my eye on it.

      It’s not that Trump wasn’t serious about the uniparty. He (and we, his supporters) discussed at length whether to form a new party or to attempt to take over the structure of the existing party.

      An entirely new party is a monumental task, for various reasons.

      Going third party independently, as Jr. is/was attempting, well he is finding out what that’s like.

      There were a great many people, even liberals, who thought voting Republican everywhere on the ballot was going to work.

      I had my doubts, but I did it anyway, because at that point in time I didn’t have a better option.

      Trump is now getting serious about reforming the GOP and about fighting election fraud.

      I’m not sure fighting nepotism with nepotism is a good idea, but hey.

      He told us going in that making deals was his strength. He expected that people like Mitch McConnell and Nancy Pelosi loved America as he does.

      Why he never learns, as with people like Lindsay Graham, is anybody’s guess.

I have no doubts that stuff like that and even stranger things are going on within the inner circles and the circles of their puppets and minions. Lately I’ve just been thinking that a lot of it is a myth and hoax. Like almost everything is theater. But then in a way it makes a whole lot of sense. Because a lot things in the human realm are theater and theatrical. So maybe the public requires it to some extent. Personally I would prefer a higher level higher frequency theater if that is what it is. It sounds like a lot of people here feel that way as well so that is part of the reason for the collective angst.

      Funny story. A guy gets convicted and sentenced to a long term in prison. His Cellie is a big guy…named Bubba. They start to talk, and Bubba brings up the subject of sex. He says that they both will be in the same cell for a long time, and that there would need to be…accommodations

      Bubba then asks the guy whether he would like to be the husband or the wife in the relationship. The guy, thinking fast, says “I want the be the husband!”

      Bubba says “Fine with me…now get over here and suck your wife’s di*k”!

      I just went to their site to see what you meant and all I see at the top of their page are Temu ads scrolling through and they do have some pretty rings, painted shells and nail care kits. On the sides of the page their are bracelets from Evolve Mala. I think the algorithms are trying to get me to buy a lot more stuff and i’m already way over budget this month lol.

      I was intrigued, so went to Zerohedge. I got nothing. No ads at all.

      • Paula D March 9, 2024 at 8:01 pm #

        Although on Facebook I was getting a lot of ads for horse semen.

        Maybe they know I have a mare? I don’t know how they would, but there it is.

        • Ron Anselmo March 10, 2024 at 12:50 am #

          Paula – here goes:

          It’s fine if you’re cheap as hell, but I’ll get into that in a minute.

          On the horse semen, I’ll assume that’s not a topic of dinner table conversation, but if you’ve mentioned your mare in conversation and have a “Smart” TV or heaven forbid, “Alexa” (you know, the device that doesn’t listen, but it’s voice-activated doncha’ know) all your conversation is recorded and fed back into your own “personal marketing channel”.

          OK, so you’re cheap as hell, but you do have your price – just like we all do. Product marketers of all stripes will drive their price down until they find YOUR individual price point.

          To wit: You may be offered horse semen at 10% off. Click – showing interest – and then wait a few days. You’ll get an ad for 25% off. No interest yet? Wait a few more days and you’ll get an ad for horse semen at 50% off.

          Break their balls and wait for 70% off, then buy. That’s YOUR price point (at which you’ll buy).

          How can they make money with sales at 70% off? That deal was not for everyone – only for YOU!

          They pulled in so many other sales at 10% & 25%, your one sale at 70% off doesn’t hurt them – other than their pride but fuck them for their audacity and invasion of your privacy.

          The general population of horse semen shoppers gets nowhere near your price discount, but no one knows the difference. The marketing concept is genius – selling to everyone, but at all different individual price points.

          Retailers can’t even consider that in a store – never work. Borders on an auction where you’re the only one in the auction house. When the caller gets down to YOUR price, then bid & buy.

          Just the results of one of my little social experiments I’ve done over the years – always have at least one or two going. Your husband looking for a new F-150? The same marketing is in play.

          Shocking when you think the whole thing through, but that’s where we are today – the manipulation is mind-boggling.

          • Paula D March 10, 2024 at 10:57 pm #

            My mare is mean as a snake. No way I would get near her with a turkey baster, I don’t care how cheap the semen is. She kicks.

            They should know that. We bitch about her right near the TV.

            But other than that, I agree with you. They listen and they target.

          • Ron Anselmo March 11, 2024 at 2:05 am #

    • Blackbird March 9, 2024 at 8:05 pm #

      Ok Ron, you did it again…

      So, I stopped by ZeroHedge to see what their advertising algorithms had for me…

      ZeroHedge was an important tool for me in my early years of awakening, I think it was even a ZeroHedge article that pointed me over to Clusterfuck Nation – where I discovered I didn’t have to wait for Mr. K’s next book, but could read his writings twice a week. But the quality of their content is at both extremes of the bell curve, and accordingly, they have slipped further and further down my list of newsfeeds – but not completely off, like some others (Naked Capitalism, the World Socialist Website, to name a couple…)

      I am being targeted with ads for fitness, guns, and SlipIns Water Sports Wear. I don’t click, but I gotta admit, their bombs are dropping all around my battleship.

      I’m guessing it’s you Ron. So yeah, bone up on your prison survival – it may benefit both of us once we land in Gitmo. Of course they will put you in solitary, and me with the other prisoners – since that will strip us both of the best aspects of imprisonment.

      • Ron Anselmo March 10, 2024 at 1:05 am #

        Bird – that’s all good. We’ll need to be fit, we’ll need guns, and the SlipIns will come in handy for sure. All we’ll need are a pair of inner tubes, and we can catch the Trades back to Florida.

        Use the above-mentioned method for purchases – you know, being an educated consumer. Just so you know, if you leave me in solitary and leave without me – I will never forgive you.

    About President Trump and his accomplishments or lack thereof.

    If you want to refresh your memory of the good things he managed to do, go back and look at what was in those stacks of paper that were put in front of Biden to sign, in the very first days of his stolen administration.

    Obama had him wiping out anything of merit done by his predecessor, a gloating victory ceremony.

  45. Beryl of Oyl March 9, 2024 at 10:16 am #

    In the “Trump was always working for Hillary” vein.

    Yeah, sure. They aren’t jus after him, they are trying to destroy his businesses and they are dragging his children in to it.

    But sure, he was in on it the whole time.

    I didn’t sleep well last night. I was going to avoid the internet the entire weekend, but a thought that entered my brain in the wee small hours has me breaking my vow to myself already.

    It was Bobby Jr.’s calling Chelsea Manning “she”. That has been bothering me, and not just for the obvious reasons, the obnoxious virtue signal being one of those obvious reasons.

    No, it’s this: we are finally starting to gain ground in the DIE/ESG battle. We have people with a high profile and influence waking up to what this is, we no longer just have Elon Musk from that “titan” class.

    Some people were fine with this until they learned that Jews were not being included in the victim class anymore. Well duh, but better late than never, welcome aboard.

    We have three main candidates for the presidency. We have Biden, or his replacement. We know were Biden stands on that DIE stuff, it’s an important part of Build Back Better, and whoever replaces him will either be a diversity candidate or a proponent.

    We have Trump, who is definitely not anti-white. He is not fighting DIE, I doubt he was even that aware of it until recently, but he is certainly not pushing it. He supports the trans nuttery to an extent. Now he’s got Caitlyn Jenner out there trying to help clean up the mess they both helped make.

    Then we have Bobby Jr., who has told us he is in favor of this lunacy.

    Yes, he has, and if you don’t want to see it you are willfully blind.

    Is Admiral Levine a woman? If Chelsea Manning is “she” so is Levine.

    Get used to it, RFK Jr. voters. Embrace the suck.

    • BackRowHeckler March 9, 2024 at 10:49 am #

      You’re not going to get everything you want in a candidate, Barrel. RFK, jr definently has his flaws, and they’re easy to find if you research his bio. I doubt if he’s thought much about DEI & trans issues. One thing we know, he likes (real) women! I wonder if he’s acquainted with Trump, and whether or not Trump would consider bring Bobby into the fold as a VP candidate, creating a sort of fusion ticket?

      • TruthSeeker1986 March 9, 2024 at 10:54 am #


        That isn’t the point, the point is Trump is full of crap. If he’s not fighting DIE, then that makes him Anti-White. If he supports the trans stuff, that means he doesn’t care that it’s being pushed on everyone.

        • Beryl of Oyl March 9, 2024 at 1:55 pm #

          He doesn’t care about the trans stuff. He never said he did, but the problem is he was running as a Republican and that whole damn party decided to throw the conservatives under the bus and decided they love the trannies too.

          Ivanka and Jared were pushing the party in “a new direction” but they didn’t have to push very hard.

      • Beryl of Oyl March 9, 2024 at 2:05 pm #

        Bobby has said that’s not going to happen.

        He gains nothing from being VP.

        Trump blew his chance to have RFK Jr. on his side.

        Bobby has thought about DEI as he came out firmly in favor of affirmative action.

        He doesn’t seem to get it, that what is going on in places like his own alma mater have used affirmative action as a way to further their globalist agenda, and black leaders know this, so there isn’t much excuse for Bobby not figuring that out.

        He also is aware of the trans issue, as he came out with the tepid and phony “no biological boys in girls sports”, but yet he called Chelsea Manning “she” which is an insult to women and scientifically invalid and also woke to the point of pain.

        I’m not going to get everything I want? It is me plus millions who don’t want this globalist woke bullshit and commie DEI/ESG crap shoved down our throats.

        If he can’t figure out that Chelsea Manning is a man he’s too stupid to be president or anything; and when someone tells you how woke they are, believe them.

      • Uncle Abraham March 9, 2024 at 2:56 pm #

        Trump and Kennedy should definitely be working together. Trump needs to top the ticket. He’s already the rightful President and he has on the job training.

      @Beryl Of Oyl

      I was going to avoid coming here at all because now I’m just constantly even more pissier than usual. The site is quite addictive though seeing how I’m often glued to seeing what people here have to say on matters that are concerning to me. I can see why so many people I talk to rather avoid all of this, or don’t like talking about it. It’s because they know it’ll just screw up their whole day. On top of it all they will probably start to worry a little on the inside but lie to themselves “that’s not going to happen.”

      None of these people give a shit anymore and I knew Trump was a fraud from the get go. Do whatever it takes to win elections even if it means supporting baby killing. The nation is lost and I’ve come to terms with that realization at this point. The past few days I kept coughing really bad even after my cold went away. I had assumed that maybe I have cancer of some kind yet I make no effort to go to the doctor because I don’t care about dying young anymore. I have to live in a world surrounded by people I’d strangle to death if I could get away with it.

      I truly hate this damn world, I don’t want to see it destroyed I just want to see all the lying no good fucking garbage people who made me hate living in it in the first place destroyed. I’ve tried to tell my mother countless times that Trump is full of shit, he’s a no good fraud, he waves his bible around just to con religious people into believing he’s the real deal, but he was always just a business man no different from the rest of the political scumbags.

      I have to ask you though what do you mean by “They were fine with it until Jews weren’t included in the Victimhood class anymore?”

      • beantownbill. March 9, 2024 at 1:10 pm #

        You are in a depressed funk. Besides mood-elevating drugs depression can be overcome by attitude adjustment. I know because I’ve been there. I’ve never told anyone this before, but as a kid, I had to try to keep my mother from committing suicide. We came home to find her with her head in the oven. We had to stay up throughout the night to prevent her from running out and offing herself. I can’t remember if I went to school the next day, but when I did go, I was very anxious about what I would find when I got home.

        I can’t remember how old I was, but it had to be before I was 12. Ya think it might have had some emotional effect on me?

        Anyway, I got depressed for a few years. I finally got myself okay by self-analysis.

        What I discovered was that the world was what it was, not the way I wanted it to be. The universe didn’t care whether I was happy or not.

        So I had a choice to be unhappy or to just go on and live my life. I didn’t need to try to make things better, I needed to just exist and deal with life day-to-day. Funny thing. My depression immediately ended. I couldn’t be happy because my mother was always telling me she wouldn’t live much longer, but I was generally okay. BTW, she lived until she was almost 102. And happiness is a false goal. It’s attainable, but not permanently. Things happen. Our responsibility to ourselves is to just keep on keeping on.

          Those are wise words, Bill.

          Truth, you may have a case of walking pneumonia or something that they can treat with a few pills.

          Only if you go get it checked out, though.

          My other advice which you didn’t ask for is when you are feeling better go to a gym.

          Action is the opposite of depression.

          It may not be the cure but it will improve things, and it will also help your insomnia.

          Razors pain you;
          Rivers are damp;
          Acids stain you;
          And drugs cause cramp.
          Guns aren’t lawful;
          Nooses give;
          Gas smells awful;
          You might as well live.

          When you said happiness is a false goal.
          Yeah, and I am in a depressive state….I dont know what to do with myself anymore. Honestly. Most of this year I’ve been feeling sick, puking, agitated, bothered, irritable. I had a psychologist a few years back and to some degree he did seem to understand me a little but not so much for me to believe that he cared since I’m sure he’s dealt with dozens of people like me.

          Also I’m sorry that you experienced what you did with your mother. That had to be very difficult and hard on you.. How you got over that is something else. Would have been difficult if not impossible for me to do that.

      • Beryl of Oyl March 9, 2024 at 1:40 pm #

        Truth, what I meant was there were people just fine with the DEI/ESG thing until it came for people of their own color/faith/creed.

        They had to have noticed how much of the student body at Harvard, for instance, was dark-skinned foreigners.

        They had to notice when universities started doing away with the SATs, which was the way for many white boys from families of modest means to be accepted by and afford to go to expensive Ivy league schools.

        As long as Jews weren’t being thrown in white plain old white boys it didn’t bother them.

        These schools have classes of people you can’t say the wrong thing about or you are in big trouble.

            I think the alumni finally realized what DEI was doing and called a halt.

            Everybody got so down on the SAT, but the people complaining about it were the same people who decided it was a measure of an individual’s intelligence or even worth.

            It’s a good tool for determining your ability to perform well scholastically.

            I don’t know why anybody wants to get in a school where the other students are either geniuses or work their butts off, unless they are the same way.

          lol see Beryl that’s what I have an issue with. People and this God complex thing “You can’t say the wrong thing about them or you will be in big trouble!” None of that is going to matter in the future when people are living in a “I got nothing to lose” situation.

        Good advice from beans, Truth.

        Don’t run from your monsters, confront them. Attack them, wrestle them to the ground, and rob them of their life force. You gotta break on through to the other side. Turn and run and they’ll hound you to your grave.

        Also, gardening and animal husbandry – and other life-affirming activities – will help train your mind in the appropriate direction.

        And no anti-depressants!

        I once cured what may have been walking pneumonia – didn’t have health insurance, couldn’t afford a doctor – with LSD. In the depth of my breathless, waterlogged agony, I realized that my only escape was to swim down under it and come up on the other side – which I did. One hell of an adventure. Of course I wouldn’t recommend anyone else attempt this, unless they were an experienced psychonaut – and most likely not even then. Just sayin’…

        And as far as my gun-buying advice is concerned: get your head on straight first. Too many people check out prematurely due to the ups and downs of the roller coaster of life. The truly suicidal live forever…

    “The part he left out was that said assault emanates entirely from the very government he pretends to head.”

    Patently false. The assault in fact comes from all quarters. It is the politics of decline and fall.

    A person following this blog regularly or even sporadically comes away with the strong impression that the author believes the Republicans and Trump offer some general salvation to what ails the USA. With the underlying premise here being that if one party is the disease, the other party must therefore be the antidote. The tacit, patent absurdity that if today we have ‘The Party of Chaos’ then Trump’s Republicans represent a return to order. That the author has transmogrified, despite his assurances to the contrary, into one more schill for the far-right, and Trump in particular. If he’s not, it is by no means transparent that he is not.

    This is of course how most of the proles frame politics out of infantilized thinking and/or in the USA too many John Wayne movies. “If that’s the bad guy over there, then that MUST be the good guy on the opposite side of the street.” It’s pure fiction. It’s unsurprising to witness an adherence to this narrative amongst the general unwarshed yeastmass that is humanity.

    It is surprising to observe it being trotted out in this context with such perennial determination however. Given the author’s expertise in matters of the impersonal forces bringing us down in relation to which everything written here today is mere trivia/sideshow, it is not unreasonable to expect a diet of more objective commentary.

    Trump, after he is elected for his second term this November, may act to do the critical work of securing the southern border, at the same time as taking some strides to limit the meddling of his failing nation abroad. Withdraw support for the Ukraine for instance, and let Russia prevail before a lot more people die. Essential moves at this stage of the game. That’s the good part. There will remain the reality that you’ve replaced an old, corrupt pathologically lying emphemera with an old, corrupt pathologically lying megalomaniac.

    Anyone who believes Donald Trump represents order has a very short memory as the least of their ailments.

    • TruthSeeker1986 March 9, 2024 at 12:44 pm #

      You summed up all of this very well.
      But many people believe he’s not going to get elected again…Personally I’d like to just buy up some land abroad in East Europe and just live there. Sadly all the European countries are owned by Nato. To make it worse, the UN controls their borders. At least most of West Europe anyway.

      • beantownbill. March 9, 2024 at 1:34 pm #

        If you move to East Europe, you would discover that you’re not happy there. Europe has been a mess throughout history, East and West. We are primates and primates don’t seem to get along with other primates. Just live your life where you are. You’re an American, with the flaws of America.

        Regarding who will be the next president, what difference does it make anyway? TPTB will decide who is the next president. I was around 23 years old when I realized this and I stopped voting. My last national vote was in 1968 and I cannot be happier about it.

        Not that I liked him, but I voted for Humphrey because I couldn’t stand Nixon. Actually it was better that Nixon won, but I was too naive back then. Even now I wouldn’t vote for him, though.

        That’s when I realized it didn’t matter who I voted for.

        Not voting is actually a protest vote. Many CFNers don’t seem to agree with me, but I don’t care.

        • TruthSeeker1986 March 9, 2024 at 2:44 pm #


          I don’t know Bill, I’m an American sure but I feel disconnected from this place… I can’t even turn on the TV without seeing a bunch of bullshit, and it’s obvious the Left wants America to be nothing but black and brown people anyway. What are they going to do to make society better? Nothing! I may be mixed race and all of that but I honestly hate black people A LOT!

          I mentioned this before. I don’t even want to live in a country where they are the majority, but I’m not too fond of Hispanics either and also don’t want to live in a country that’s being overrun by them. Once the White population is gone, America will just be American in name only. Just like what’s being done to England and all the other European nations that are having their cultural heritage erased and their citizenry replaced.

          People are waiting around hoping that they will elect the “right” politician to fix these problems. And I agree with you on the voting situation, I never believed in it either. The only time I was going to ever vote was for a woman named Zephry Teachout she was running for New York at the time but lost.

          People say never vote for women but I live in California and seen what Galvin Newsom has done to my state, Galvin who happens to be a man and has done far more damage than anyone has ever done to this state. Case in point I don’t know how I would feel if I were in East Europe. I’m not even happy here in America… because I don’t feel American anymore and I definitely don’t feel like I live in America….

          We are a nation of people govern by crooked ass criminals and heartless men and women that want us all dead, living in fear, and submissive to their one world rule…. It’s hard to be proud of where you come from when it’s being destroyed and there isn’t a single warrior around willing to challenge and overthrow them FOR REAL. Not someone like Trump that just gets up there and talks a lot of hot air about what he’s going to do, I get tired of the endless theatrical bullshit.

            More wise words from beans, Truth.

            You are an American, you wouldn’t fit in anywhere but the US. I suspect you haven’t gotten around much. Even if you did, as an American you probably wouldn’t notice that people are not the same everywhere. Even in Canada – our little sister – you would stand out like a sore thumb. And as a Californian, you would be a foreigner pretty much everywhere else in this country.

            I’m an American. I’ve been around a bit. I know this is where I have to make my last stand. So I came back. This is my country – even though I barely recognize it as such anymore. These are my people – like them or not.

            Stop worrying about the big picture. You can’t change it. Take control of your life. You can change that. Live your life as best you can, until it is taken from you.

        Yeah, I think so. I was thinking that maybe I’d go to meet Jim, and it wouldn’t be bad to see Bobby either if he’ll be there. But I don’t know if I’ll do that. My wife would probably like to go, too. I suspect she would like Bobby. Jim’s about 5 hours away. We could stay overnight somewhere. I’ll think about that.

      You have made an eloquent argument with many words. In a word, however, you’re wrong. There is a dimension above your reasoning that determines the motives and outcomes contrary to your perception. You are fooled by appearances. Trump is an agent for good, packaged in away particularly unappealing to those with a very high opinion of themselves and their intellect.

    Here’s what needs done ASAP:
    1. Close the border, put Federal Troops on the border, and shoot anyone crossing the border illegally.
    2. Use all forms of law enforcement to round up and deport illegals to their home countries.
    3, Cut off all Government Services to illegals.
    4. Fine and imprison any business leader who employes illegals for cash.
    5. Cut all funding to NGO’s.
    6. Pull at least half of our military wasting time and money in foreign countries. Close bases.
    7. Cut funding to all nations that are not friendly to America.
    8. Revise campaign donation laws.
    9. Audit all U.S. Congressman’s bank accounts.
    10. Pass term limit legislation.
    11. Supply our own energy.
    12. Make it more difficult for people to take legal
    action against anything in the Bill of Rights, especially the Second Amendment.
    13. Support our local law enforcement but keep an eye out for bad actors. Punish them severely for abuse of power.
    14. Eliminate the Department of Education and let the States manage education.
    15. Do away with DEI and all the other foolish ideas we have about sex and race. Judge a man or woman by their character, not color.
    16. Create a Youth Work Corps. We have too many young people roaming the streets. Put them to work and teach them a work ethic.
    17. Fire or make responsible those judges that are soft on crime.
    18. Take a long hard look at the legislation that has created mega companies such as Amazon, Mega, Blackrock etc.
    19. Change the rules so that people like SOROS, BEZOS, etc. don’t control elections.
    20. Round up those who have been spying on American citizens and selling out this Country. Trying some of these people for treason might give them and their friends a wake-up call.
    21. Bring manufacturing back to America.
    Vote for me in November, and I’ll do 21 things for you! LOL!

      Some countries want to change for the better, some do not. That’s why in El Salvador they had to do a lot to make the place safe. Most countries feel unable to do this for some reason. Then you also have too much corruption. The U.S. benefits off crime, that’s why they purposely create so much of it. You don’t see the Japanese gov running around allowing mass gang violence, etc to happen.

      They only have the Yakuza to contend with and the Yakuza is nowhere near as bad as the criminal groups we have in America. For one thing they never if ever target or mess with regular ordinary people. America allows the flow of Drugs, illegal weapons, etc. What do you think law enforcement do after they confiscate all that stuff? They keep it! They don’t set fire to it and burn it.

      They keep all that drug money and I’m sure the gov gets at least 80% if not more of it. America would be a lot safer if it weren’t for corrupt scumbags running the country and unlike other nations we have TOO MANY OF THEM. If Japan had the same level of corruption we had, it wouldn’t be that hard to get rid of the people behind it. Here in America….It’s practically impossible, plus they would have to turn their backs on Israel also. Which they’ll never ever do.

        During my last working stint in Osaka (1980 ~ 1984) I frequently had occasion to observe the “Ya-san” (polite way of referring to “Yakuza”, the literal meaning of which is “useless [human being]”. They were effective at crowd control around events as well as discouraging petty free-lance crime like pickpocketing. The Japanese, corny romantics at heart, seem to have a fondness for these scumballs (think “Sopranos”).

        These thugs have established themselves in the usual trades of narcotics, shakedowns, prostitution and human-smuggling in the Philippines (big-time) and to a lesser extent in other Southeast Asian countries.

        One Takeshi Ebisawa got in way over his head recently when he put together a cunning plan to sell “…uranium and weapons-grade plutonium…” along with rocket launchers and other such party favors to an undercover agent in Thailand recently. It would have been quaintly humorous if it wasn’t so pathetic.

        Dopes are clearly “…not ready for prime-time”.

    The worm turns. Trump may indeed be our next president – and it will be a disaster.

    They have two parties for a reason, folks. They reinforce each other in the good/bad duality. Can you have a left side without a right side?

    Unless the Globalist/Satanists are finally willing to put their foot down on the pesky Zionists. The Democrats and their militia aren’t going to like a Trump presidency. But it’s going to take a lot more than that if the Elders of Zions give him the nod.

    As Anglin says, Biden and Co are completely for this war, but his base isn’t at all. And Whites aren’t joining the military any more. Time for a reset?

    The Democrats shouldn’t have supported them. They need to be true to their Globalist beliefs – which are anathema to the Zionist agenda.

          There are Jews in both parties. The Satanists are ultimately stronger, yes, But the Zionists can dash the world to hell – even if somehow real Americans wrested control back from them. Israel itself is strong enough to bring down the world system if they go Masada.

          Remember, the Zionists hate what is happened to our Universities, but they can’t stop it. Why not – if they’re in complete control? Or why was Israel used as a guinea pig by Pfizer? Was that good for the Jews?

    • TruthSeeker1986 March 9, 2024 at 3:19 pm #


      So then Trump supports what Israel is doing in Gaza and if he gets elected then what? I’m not sure I follow what that article is saying but I don’t want to click it and read it though. I can’t stand MSN and last year when I was reading into all this war stuff, it just made me feel very ill and sick over all the nuclear war talk I kept hearing over and over again.

        All other nations must be sacrificed to their terrible beauty, the Global State. But not Israel? Some say yes, not Israel. Some say, yes, Israel too.

        Do the Rothschilds have more in common with Bill Gates or the Jewish baker “down the street”? Whom are they allied with, have a mutual understanding with? There is evidence that even Jewish ethnic solidarity is left behind above the plateau. See the dollar bill. The Cap Stone is set apart. The plateau (as I call it) is the part of the pyramid just below. They know who their Masters are. You cannot work your way into the Capstone. Nor buy your way in. You must be invited.

        @Truthseeker They ARE the same.

        They’ve rejected God and want to play God.

        And, yes, it seems to me that Trump supports the destruction of the Palestinians, perhaps even more than Biden.

        Trump may not be OF the Establishment, but he’s beholden to the most important part of it, the Israeli Lobby and Sheldon (now Miriam) Adelson and friends.

        Of course, when you drill down, you realize that if he is THAT beholden, Trump is unlikely to affect any major changes to the USS Titanic.

        He will be in a weaker position to do so the 2nd time–the problems have gotten worse, he is older and weaker–and that’s before factoring in his fealty to Israel.

        The Israeli Lobby owns ALL THREE leading Presidential candidates. (Still, I say Trump or RFK are much less bad than Biden. At least Trump will improve the US border. RFK is not strong enough to beat the corrupt health system. But I digress…)

        What has Israel done for the US?

        There’s what, 9 million “Israelis”, about 7.2 million Jews and 2M “Israeli Arabs”. (This excludes the 5M Palestinans living on the “occupied territories”)

        So, let’s just take ONE aid package: the $14 BILLION emergency aid to help Israel destroy Gaza.

        That’s about $2,000 for every Israel Jew in aid. PURE aid.

        How much are you paying in Federal Income Taxes for CY 2023?

        How big is the US budget deficit? Add $14B.

        What’s the interest on that debt? IDK, $659 billion in 2023.

        YOU pay the taxes and what’s left are rapidly depreciating dollars, thanks to high inflation.

        So, for all you do, what has Israel done for you, American CFNer?

      • TruthSeeker1986 March 9, 2024 at 4:19 pm #

        @Beryl Of Oyl

        I always thought the whole point of this war was to get rid of the Palestinian people, so Israel can expand further. What makes it so bad is that a lot of these people losing their homes will just end up right over here in the U.S. the Middle Eastern nations won’t take them, and that’s a real shame. But from what I hear they say they are more trouble than they are worth. Therefore they would rather these people become our burden and problem. And Hamas doesn’t seem like a large military force, so you would think they would have already defeated them.

    When thinking about the economy and finance, growing populist sentiment must begin to face the historical and contemporary fact that our monetary and fiscal apparatus has always been, and is currently, profoundly entangled–the public (state and Fed) with the private (banks and capital/bond markets).

    I would argue that it may now be largely a fantasy to believe that there can be a rigid separation, a”free” capital market or a “privatized” money supply.

    Would love to hear counter-arguments to this assumption.

      Jim – you have a thorough understanding of finance and how money works. Don’t think you’ll get many, if any takers, to argue your point – myself included.

      It does lean toward a reality bias though, assuming things sort of limp along – biz as usual – so to speak.

      Personally, I see the continued push toward “interoperable” CBDCs – maybe 15 worldwide – as a (complete) control mechanism.

      However, if people collectively see the motive and the inherent dangers, they may burn the house down.

      There will always be a need for currencies to facilitate trade and mercantilism, but it may revert to puka shells or something similar.

      Truth told, I’d rather see that than what we have now, or what we’ll face with the yoke of CBDCs.

    Hey, Marlin, we just booked a room in Albany to attend Jim’s book signing. From Albany we’re driving to Foxwoods where we also booked a room. From Albany we’re passing through or near Hartford on the way to the casino. If you’re interested, we could meet up somewhere convenient to both of us. It would be on Sunday 3/17 as we will be in an Albany hotel overnight on the 16th.

    Also, maybe you could contact St. Elmo’s and we could have a little New England get together. Let me know if this is possible.

    • BackRowHeckler March 9, 2024 at 6:35 pm #

      Bill, that sounds great. Elmo will see your post, I’ll also text him. I expect you’ll be taking the Mass. Pike to I-91 South into Hartford. Just offhand without looking at a map the best place to meet up might be where I-91 and the Mass. Pike intersect a little South of North Hampton, Mass. Elmo lives up that way, and it would be right on your route (if that is your route) It’s a nice ride for me too, up US 10. Let me talk to Elmo, we’ll firm up plans.

      • beantownbill. March 9, 2024 at 9:17 pm #

        Looks like that would be okay. For us, as long as we can get relatively easy to rt. 95 from where we meet – because we have to drive to Foxwoods afterwards – we’ll be all right. Set it up. My only caveat is that my wife continues to be ok. She’ll been very well, but with her disease, I never know for sure. We will be going to Albany first on the sixteenth, stay overnight in Albany, and start back on the seventeenth, when we meet sometimes during that day.

    Profound conflict between the globalist UN and the State of Israel.

    Kissinger was on the side of the Globalists despite his Jewish heritage. It seemed easy for him. For others it must be agony. It’s said that some of the WASP Elite didn’t like the Globalist takeover at Jekyll island. But they kept awfully quiet about it. Most were fine with it. We have much to learn from the Jews about loving ourselves and our nations. Ignore what they say and watch what they do.

    • TruthSeeker1986 March 10, 2024 at 6:52 am #


      Well Jarek, they get to love their nation because only Jewish people run and own Israel. So who’s is there brainwashing their masses to hate themselves and give up everything? Who is there promoting open borders? who is there telling them they must mix with other people and have multiracial kids? NOBODY. They get to love their country because no one owns them, no one gets to tell them what to do or order them around…

      Look how easy it was for them to kill so many people who weren’t even part of Hamas but no one is ballsy enough to sanction them like they were doing to Russia. And Putin wasn’t killing innocent people indiscriminately like Israel is doing but the West still outright tried to sanction Russia while also convincing a bunch of other countries to do the same.

      We don’t even have rights to our own country because it also belongs to the very same people who run Israel. Basically they own two different countries, their own, and ours.

      The only difference is our country is being wrecked and fucked over on purpose for no apparent reason. And we have no real leadership or anyone who truly cares enough to remove these people who are intentionally destroying us.

      “El Kabong” That’s funny. Brings back childhood memories. A Quckdraw McGraw caricature of a Mexican hero. Cultural appropriation it is and must be condemned.

      • elysianfield March 10, 2024 at 3:08 pm #


        Well, how about “Muy Kablooey”, the inept Mexican terrorist that, like Wiley Coyote, continually fails to succeed?

  61. Beryl of Oyl March 10, 2024 at 10:36 am #

    I was talking about Wokism and Bobby Jr. and also Bill Ackman yesterday.

    The thing with wokeness is that it is, as Elon Musk has called it, a mind virus.

    People with this virus don’t even realize they have it sometimes.

    This is not to say there aren’t true believers. There are. There are also many who adhere to its tenets in the face of reality.

    I was talking about Bill Ackman and DIE, and how he used to think it was a good thing until he started looking more closely and found out it wasn’t what he thought at all.

    This is true. It’s a cover for something insidious disguised as a good thing, except not really.

    If you take DIE as what you think it is, it is still a bad thing. If you take Affirmative Action as what you think it is, it is still a bad thing.

    I’m not going to explain what I mean by that so don’t ask.

    Back to Ackman.

    He now sees this DIE stuff for what it really is.

    What he hasn’t done is recover from his woke mindset. All he’s done is realize that DIE isn’t as woke as he thought it was.

    Here is an example of that:

    This is something Elon Musk said recently:

    “Because I am raising concerns about the flood of unvetted illegal immigrants overwhelming American cities, the press will often characterize me as “anti-immigrant”.

    As an immigrant myself, nothing could be further from the truth.

    I am very much in favor of increased and expedited legal immigration for anyone who is talented, hard-working and honest.

    It is bizarrely difficult and agonizingly slow to immigrate to the USA legally, but trivial and fast to enter illegally! This obviously makes no sense.”

    Musk shouldn’t have to defend his position of being against illegal immigration, but he chose to do so.

    This is what Bill Ackman had to say in response:

    “I totally agree.

    A good friend’s home was burglarized this week. When the police arrived to investigate, they explained that there has been a massive increase in burglaries in town by Chilean gangs comprised of recently arrived illegal immigrants who are unable to work legally.

    In order to survive, these immigrants are recruited into crime syndicates because they cannot legally work.

    I am sure that the vast majority of immigrants come to America for a better life, fleeing poverty, crime and corrupt governments — sadly, they are left with no alternative other than crime or illegal work because of the failure of our immigration system.


    OMG the man’s mind is suppurating with the virus.

    Totally innocent Chilean gangsters came here illegally in search of a better life and because our broken system wouldn’t allow them to work they were just forced to break into people’s homes because men who had the agency to get here en masse all the way from Chile found themselves helpless and easy prey one they got here.


    Where does he think the “recruiters” came from?

    The man can’t be this dense and be as successful as he is, he just can’t.

    So why does he say these things? He’s brainwashed, that’s why.

    Besides, no our system isn’t “broken”. People like Chuck Schumer have made it unfair, and it is true to a point that it is difficult and slow to immigrate legally. That point being that some people are held to different standards than others when it comes to legal immigration.

    Our system is abused and contorted, but the main failure is that it isn’t enforced.

    Bobby Jr., as I said yesterday, is also infected with the woke mind virus. He is telling us he is.

    I give him credit for trying to learn a lot, he obviously has been working very hard.

    He’s still woke.

    • TruthSeeker1986 March 10, 2024 at 12:24 pm #

      Legal immigration is just as bad as illegal immigration. And they both support immigration because they are too afraid to just tell it like it is. All this talk about fleeing and escaping poverty is a load of bullshit. If these people were fleeing these problems, then why the fuck do they come here and vote for the same garbage policies that wrecked their own country? Not only that, they make zero effort to try to fix the issues in their country. People should just admit it. White people made life better, if it weren’t for white people the world would suck.

      That’s the whole reason why everyone is trying to crame into white countries yet everyone is so eager to erase, replace, and get rid of the very people that made their societies prosperous in the first place. And Asians often do equally well with their society which is why you don’t see a horde of Japanese people trying to move to America, why would they? Their country is safer. healthier, the only downside is the brutal work culture.

      • Beryl of Oyl March 10, 2024 at 12:32 pm #

        I think mass immigration, chain immigration, and ‘diversity’ visas are bad.

        Illegal immigration is worse because they have already shown their total disregard for our laws and also if they have the means to get all the way here and enter illegally, they could have gone to the trouble of doing it the right way.

        I watched a Japanese movie once and part of it was about their jobs going to China, yet we keep hearing they are going to need immigrants because of their population collapse.

          You two think it all comes down to economics. Like hell it does. That mentality created the hell you despise.

          Legal immigration is going over the cliff at a staid 20 mph. Illegal will send us over at a screaming 120.

    • TruthSeeker1986 March 10, 2024 at 12:28 pm #

      Let’s also not forget that working low wage job doesn’t help or benefit anyone other than the people who take advantage of people willing to work for low wages. But anyone thinking America is safe and doesn’t have any poverty is ignorant and stupid. The reason they are really here is because the left promised to give them the world as long as they support them. But surely these invaders aren’t so idiotic that they can’t see the millions of homeless encampments throughout America, the store flash mobs, and the decayed cities rife with gang violence in places like Chicago, Detroit, Oakland, Fresno, etc.

    • Jarek March 10, 2024 at 2:25 pm #

      Tucker: Where was Ack and the other big Jewish donors a decade ago when Whites started to be slandered as monsters?

      Jarek: They didn’t know? I don’t buy it. They’re speaking up now because they’re for their own people, and that doesn’t include us.

      But yes, they are confused. They could never decide if they wanted to rule America or destroy it. They helped to pull down South Africa and then they had to flee. Some thing this time over here. Why would it be any different?

      Again, the two factions. The Globo/Satanists (comprised of both Jew and non-Jew) and the Zionists. One wants to destroy, the other wants to rule, but enjoys humiliating Whites. That provides cover for the Satanists.

    “The truth is, there are not two kinds of people. There’s only one: the kind that loves to divide up into gangs who hate each other’s guts. Both conservatives and liberals agree among themselves, on their respective message boards, in uncannily identical language, that their opponents lack any self-awareness or empathy, the ability to see the other side of an argument or to laugh at themselves. Which would seem to suggest that they’re both correct. Let me propose that if your beliefs or convictions matter more to you than people—if they require you to act as though you were a worse person than you are—you may have lost perspective.”

    From a thread by this guy: Ian Ellis (ianellisjones) on X. This isn’t about food, is it?

    “New details from DOD on the Gaza maritime corridor emergency mission:

    – Over 1,000 U.S. military personnel

    – Weeks to plan & execute (~60 days)

    – U.S. Army 7th Transportation Brigade (Expeditionary) from VA tasked

    – “Maintains the ability to provide unique capabilities from offshore without a U.S. military presence within Gaza”

    – U.S. Navy will not play a role because it doesn’t require “combat capability”

    – Working with Military Sealift Command & logistics support vessels (LSV) involved; multiple ships “from across the world will come together”

    – JLOTS (joint logistics over the shore) operation confirmed;
    employed last year in Ex Talisman Sabre in Australia

    – Aid will be loaded from Cyprus ? floating pier ? LSVs (or barge) ? causeway ? ashore ? partners ? Gaza

    – Working with like-minded countries & partners, who will provide security & assistance on the ground

    – Sending out prepare to deploy orders (in process)

    – Provide up to 2 million meals/day

    – Under CENTCOM command”

          I think we both know that a vast majority of blacks are idiots. Especially the pathetic vengeful ones using the past as a poor excuse just to kill or attack someone. The bastards even act that way toward other blacks if they mistakenly bump into them in public.

          • elysianfield March 11, 2024 at 12:04 am #

            “I think we both know that a vast majority of blacks are idiots.”

            I, myself, would not say that. I would say, however that the vast majority of blacks that embrace the Ghetto Culture of victimization suffer from a moral malignancy and a measured lack of civility. They are racially bigoted, very ignorant, and can be dangerous.

            Ghetto culture is corrupt. It promotes violence, and ignorance, and cannot be a part of a civilized society.

            I saw this in….1969. Nothing has changed, other than the ferals that the culture produces are better armed than when I was on the street.

            I saw young white children brought up in that culture corrupted to the same extent as blacks similarly raised. I have seen young black children, raised in white enclaves, behave as you would expect of their white peers.


          • benr March 11, 2024 at 8:28 am #




            Even with the correct culture there is a chip on most black peoples shoulders that I did not see in places like Grand Cayman Islands during my NAVY days.
            I asked one of my black shipmates about it and he had no answer that was rational.
            They might have managed to export that poison there since then because now it does exist in Jamaica.

    Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

    I had no idea my previous post about Trump and his taking credit for the COVID vaccines would go so viral. Thank you to all who engaged. I meant every word of it, and I’m not the only one seeing major red flags in Trump’s handling of the jabs and Operation Warp Speed. A prominent political leader in Texas called me and warned that if this post is true, it would be nothing less than “political suicide” for #Trump. I’m also seeing a lot more people say they’re done with Trump and they admire the fact that RFK, Jr. totally gets it about the #vaccines. There is no perfect candidate, for sure, but it is not unreasonable for us to expect people like Trump to at least have some clue about what nearly his ENTIRE support base has come to learn about the dangers of the jabs.

    Jarek: He’s reconsidering is support for Trump, as am I. He totally supports the Vax and Israel – just like any other Neo-Con or Neo-Liberal.

    Bobby Jr wants to steal what little the White man has left and give it to the Blacks like any other shit lib or Trump (everyone forgets the platinum plan).

    I’m going to write in Malthus.

At least judging from the way you worded all of this. But I was never fond of Trump anyway, about the only good thing I can see him doing is closing up the border and getting rid of everyone but…I hate Neo-Cons, and I hate Neo-Liberals equally as much.

        This was always true, TS.

        Stopping what has been unveiled to many over the past few years is going to take decades. And the heroes will be both known and unknown.

          For catholics, the rosary, divine mercy, the 9 choirs of angels, precious blood chaplet and the hours of the passion of our Lord by Louissa Piccarreta.

          Also several priests and nuns who have been receiving visions and or locutions for years in secret have just released two messages,
          One, join my army to battle the antichrist and
          Two, the pope is the usurper.

          True there are more of us, but the predator class owns our military. They also have all these groups who are willing to do their bidding. BLM for instance would love nothing more than to go out and kill and attack white people for the sole purpose of being able to display their hatred without retaliation. Then there’s Antifa, and all these war age males in the country they overwhelmed us with. All in all, I wanted to believe there was someone to trust and believe in during my lifetime. But I was wrong. But it’s like one person here was saying “I’m sick of this guy constantly talking about how he’s the only one that can prevent WWIII, and etc.” At least its good to know people on here aren’t as brainwashed by Trumps BS like they are over on American Thinker… I swear it’s like a cult following over there with that guy.

            Well, one other thing to contemplate is just how much worse things could have been during “Covid.”

            They tried to go full fascist, but they did not succeed. There is a long road ahead, but things got downright scary here.

            Families barred from food shopping, denied medical care, etc. They even had signs up here at Christmas markets telling the “vaccinated” that they were not to hand food over the fencing to any “unvaccinated.”

            We were about one step from camps.

    We know that someday in the near future we will have a race war in this Country. Once the blacks, Hispanics, and middle easterners get together their newfound power will give the remaining whites issues. The blacks now have the race card.
    Whites have done so much for the blacks in this Country, but they want more power and benefits.
    The other groups will milk the system while the white people pay the bill.
    Look at the hate and crime that has been with us over the past ten years. The 13% crowd has caused a lot of misery in our neighborhoods.
    We keep giving these people a free pass. Why?

      Hispanics hate negros. That’s why in prison the Latino gangs usually team up with the White supremacist groups. Not only that, they are both competing for “freebies” and when Hispanics own businesses they do not employ or hire anyone other than their own people. As for the Middle Easterners they also only stick by their own. A lot of this shit was done on purpose I hope Obama gets raped up his ass in hell.

      There’s going to come a point in people’s lives when they have to choose between being a victim or just standing up for themselves and fighting back. A long time ago some black guy made a video on youtube about a race war. He said so himself “Blacks would lose a race war in America. Them white folks know how to use guns better than anybody in this country.” The problem is America should have got rid of both Obama and Israel a long time ago including Globalist like Soros. These people want there to be bloodshed.
