        Do you think that more than half of the US public may be getting a little irked with “Joe Biden’s” lawfare elf, AG Merrick Garland, as he rolls one innocent J-6 protester after another into decades of hard-time for strolling through the US Capitol building — while the special counsels assigned to only a few of the Biden family crimes play hide-the-salami with due process?

      For all their cheap talk about “our democracy,” it’s a little scary to see what Democratic Party lawyers actually think of the legal system that is supposed to allow a society based on liberty to function fairly. Court filings last week indicate that Special Counsel David Weiss is about to indict Hunter Biden on that gun charge they have used as the joker in a three-card Monte game for going on five years.

     Last time, they ran the game before Delaware federal judge Maryellen Noreika, she detected a teeny-weeny, sneaky clause in the plea agreement to a watered-down gun charge that would have granted immunity to Hunter B from any other past wrongdoing, including, of course, the entire alleged Biden family racketeering operation that had the First Son acting as prime broker and bag-man for tens of millions of dollars in bribes from foreign actors in countries less than friendly to US interests, funneled into any number of Biden family shell corporations. Judge Noreika nixed the plea agreement.

     Now, Mr. Weiss’s crew seems to be saying that the immunity clause is still tied to any plea deal answering a forthcoming September 29 indictment. The move would appear to be timed to exactly the moment that a House impeachment committee would begin its inquiry into the Biden family’s moneygrubbing activities. In ordinary House committee hearings, DOJ officials like to use the excuse of “an ongoing investigation” to demur from answering questions. Merrick Garland has done this dozens of times. Will they now try to upgrade that to “an ongoing prosecution?” Could that move lead to a constitutional impasse, requiring the Supreme Court to rule? Or does a House impeachment panel enjoy special privileges of inquiry?

      It also appears that Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FLA) intends to force the issue of opening an impeachment ASAP against “Joe Biden.” In last January’s maneuvering to seat a new Republican House majority, Mr. Gaetz pushed through an agreement that the process to remove and replace the Speaker of the House could be activated by one vote. Mr. Gaetz reiterated last week that he means business. He’s the one vote.

     The argument that Republicans should leave hands-off “Joe Biden” so they can run against the feeble old grifter in 2024 is preposterous because there is no way that the “JB” can possibly run for reelection under any circumstances. It’s just another trip being laid on the American public — and one that illustrates how tragic and dangerous is the absence of an honest news media for challenging such insolent gambits. The President can barely totter into a room now without making some embarrassing pratfall or gaffe. He couldn’t possibly survive a debate, especially with all the new records of his crimes unearthed since the last time around in 2020 when he pretended to know nothing about his son’s business dealings.

     Anyway, the actual issue is not whether it’s politically advantageous to lay off “Joe Biden,” but the irrefutable fact that he (and the shadowy figures running his regime) are wrecking the country. He (they) can do a lot more damage in the many months leading up to January, 2025, especially around the dangerous idiocy that the US foreign policy gang pursues so blindly in Ukraine. You might argue that the “president” would never be convicted (actually booted out) in a Democrat majority Senate trial following a productive House impeachment. But both procedures would be televised and recorded for play on a thousand Internet channels, despite the connivance of a complicit legacy news media. And the public will finally see the case against “Joe Biden” and his family laid out carefully, precisely, and coherently, with high and grave decorum. Even some percentage of ring-fenced Democratic voters may have to finally conclude that something has gone very wrong in our country and in their own party.

    Happy 9/11 everyone, the beginning false flag event to have kicked off the 21st Century. Joey Biden is currently spending time up in Alaska, trying to figure out how to keep more oil in the ground in order to keep those gas prices high!

    Who knows what kinds of rambling gaffes Joey B. will come out with next! Or maybe they’ll just shut down the Q&A portion of the presser and play some jazz music like they recently did in Hanoi, as Biden shuffles off stage right while the media yells questions at him about Hunter Biden’s improprieties.

      Rumor has it that Ol’ SloJo has ordered a 12 foot black dust fence to be constructed around the White House, Lahaina style, to keep curious citizens and reporters at bay. If it works as well as expected, Congress and the Supremes are expected to follow suit. Armed stormtroopers will be stationed outside as well to “politely” inform people to “move along, there’s nothing to see here.”

      • Woodchuck September 11, 2023 at 10:07 am #

        Who knows? If the trajectory of war plays itself out where it’s currently heading, maybe there will be nothing to see not just at the White House but in all of the entire DC area and a good part of Virginia after incoming missiles reduce the entire area to a pile of radioactive gravel and ashes.

            I’m reminded of Joe’s 2021 inauguration. Bleachers filled with a few hundred globalist faithful. The streets of Washington filled with troops, tanks, and armoured personnel carriers. Ordinary Americans kept away and locked down (for their own good).

            It sort of looked like a banana republic coup. A regime secure in it’s legitimacy would not sentence unarmed Jan 06 demonstrators to 20 year prison terms. The ass clowns running this dystopia are terrified of an awakened people.

          • Paula D September 11, 2023 at 11:38 am #

            It was a follow-up to the Jan. 6th coup, when McConnell and Pelosi set up a small riot in order to shut down the Constitutional procedure needed to “certify” the vote.

            Once they had that done, they rolled out the barbed wire and armed goons for the coronation.

          • Beryl of Oyl September 11, 2023 at 1:54 pm #

            I don’t know why more people can’t see that for what it was.

            BTW, I see that Bobby Jr. has commented on President Trump’s mug shot, but he didn’t really fgo into why a former president was having a mug shot taken in the first place.

            Curious.

            @hmuller

            They needed to cordon off the inauguration, not for security, but to mask an anticipated historically low attendance.

            They were not kept away.
            They never existed.

            They were terrified of the realization by “ordinary Americans” that the most voted for candidate in history had nobody in attendance at the coronation.

      The new math:

      2 planes = 3 buildings!

      • benr September 11, 2023 at 11:00 am #

        One of the towers fell into the base of the third building and effectively knocked out that one corner.
        There were also fires inside that third building.

        • JackStraw September 11, 2023 at 11:16 am #

          Are you trying to say that the corner damage to the building brought it down in perfect symmetrical freefall with accompanying squibs visible during the whole process?

          • Woodchuck September 11, 2023 at 12:08 pm #

            Uh, benr doesn’t understand physics – and that’s not saying much, most people don’t. Most of us were asleep or bored in science classes and physics and chemistry were subjects we avoided. Engineering students who took all the freshman basic engineering classes would know that a physical law called “conservation of momentum” challenges all the state’s explanations for what happened on 9/11.

          • Ron Anselmo September 11, 2023 at 12:28 pm #

            Exactly Woody – and anyone who took freshmen basic engineering classes and didn’t immediately recognize that as three controlled demolitions, hopefully is not now a credentialled Engineer. Remind me again what “Pull it” means.

          • Beryl of Oyl September 11, 2023 at 1:58 pm #

            Those laws of physics also prove how utterly stupid masks for a virus were.

            I see Newsom talking about what he would have done differently “in hindsight”, but we knew all these things, indubitably, way before March 2020.

          • The Man They Call Zazelle September 11, 2023 at 4:36 pm #

            It had nothing to do with physics and everything to do with phear. The third building saw what happened and simply collapsed out of phear. It soiled its rebar.

          • Ron Anselmo September 13, 2023 at 3:08 pm #

            Zazzy – some of your stuff seems silly, but no doubt you have a seriously deep intellect. Match that with a wicked sense of humor, and ^this^ is what you get. Awesome. Screen-shotting to send to some of my buddy engineers (for truth). Funny AF.

          • The Man They Call Zazelle September 13, 2023 at 4:48 pm #

          • tuco22 September 11, 2023 at 3:04 pm #

            Ron: Exactly. I liked the tortuous explanations they went through trying to tell us that “pull it” didn’t mean what it has always meant. In any case, there’s no way that ordinary fires turn concrete to dust.

          • tuco22 September 11, 2023 at 3:08 pm #

            They said it was a glitch in the feed that delayed the picture of the building going down into its own footprint.

        • WadeWaters September 11, 2023 at 1:25 pm #

          benr – You should watch the video called ‘9/11 Mysteries – Demolitions. All 3 of those buildings were structural demolitions.

          They all fell at or very near free-fall speed.

          The only way to get a collapse like that is to simultaneously destroy all supporting structures–otherwise a free-fall collapse is not possible. Particularly three collapses where the debris is pulverized and lands in its own footprint.

          This stuff has been done to death over at A&E.

          The physics involved are actually rather basic.

            It has long irritated me that Karl Denninger is dead set against 9/11 “Truthers.” There are a couple of reasons for this, one being that the official story is clearly a crock, and you’d have to be a moron to believe it. The other reason is that Karl is always decrying the public’s refusal to take action, whether against the government or against “jabbist” doctors or neighborhood pharmacists, or whoever–whom he often says that he would “do something about,” so that they would no longer cumber the earth. Quite the tough guy.

            But he refuses to allow any discussion of 9/11 and buys the official story.

            Since he’s no dummy, this suggests to me that, at a minimum, he’s been told how far he can go: So far and no further.

            Generally, Karl does a great job, but it appears that he will “kiss the ring” as needed.

          • Night Owl September 12, 2023 at 3:00 am #

            There were no fucking DEWs.

            It was a classic demolition. Go look at the mountain of evidence at A&E.

        • tuco22 September 11, 2023 at 11:50 am #

          That’s correct. My husband and I saw a video of the missile strike that hit the pentagon, before it was scrubbed from YouTube.

          • Paula D September 11, 2023 at 1:47 pm #

            I think it was pre-planted explosives, just like the the WTC buildings and the Murrah Building.

            No missile, no plane, (although there was a plane which flew over the building as the explosives went off. Many, many people saw the plane fly over them, but didn’t realize that it flew over the building. Except for one employee on the other side of the building, who was out taking a smoke break, and saw it continue on.)

          • anmariwakaranai September 11, 2023 at 3:13 pm #

          You’re 100% incorrect.
          I worked with a lady that was literally across from the pentagon when the plane hits she saw it live.

          • Night Owl September 11, 2023 at 5:48 pm #

            Utter bullshit.

            I worked down the road and saw the initial blast hole.

            There was no fucking plane.

            Which is why they will never show you the video.

          • benr September 12, 2023 at 10:02 am #

            Nope she had no reason to lie about the event.

          • Night Owl September 12, 2023 at 2:39 pm #

            There is no video, and the claimed plane made a nearly impossible maneuver and created a round hole the size of a small missile. The media likes to hide those photos.

            These things are far more interesting to me than someone who claimed they saw a plane. Lots of people are sure they had “Covid,” too.

        • Night Owl September 11, 2023 at 5:47 pm #

          Indeed. They will never show you what did, just like they will never show you an isolate of “Covid-19”

          • Uncle Bob September 11, 2023 at 10:01 pm #

            So where did the non-Flight 92 planes go, if not the WTC and the Pentagon?

            Show us the video of what hit the Pentagon, Bob.

          • benr September 12, 2023 at 10:05 am #

            there is a video that was less than 10 frames a second shows a tail section it is out there it shows like 1 frame before the explosion.
            The idea that this inept government could cover up an act of treason this huge for this long is utterly preposterous.
            More believable is they knew about it and let it happen like Pearl Harbor or the USS Maine event.
            Hell some of them might have even helped it along but to have planned and executed it…naw to many moving parts.

          • Night Owl September 12, 2023 at 2:41 pm #

            Where is this mysterious video?

            Why won’t they show us a video where we don’t have to guess what a thin white streak might be?

            There are more cameras on and around the Pentagon than just about any other building in the US. I used to work in the Army Library, so I do have some idea of what I am talking about.

          • Islander September 14, 2023 at 12:56 pm #

            “So where did the non-Flight 92 planes go, if not the WTC and the Pentagon?”

            These types are questions are in themselves not evidence.

            just like “Show me the isolate.”

            They really don’t further any concrete hypotheses, as far as I can tell.

            The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

            Regarding the plane that supposedly went into the Pentagon, it is quite possible that relevant video is being withheld and suppressed to lead people into that gotcha! question dead-end.

            And, it is a dead-end.

          • Islander September 14, 2023 at 12:58 pm #

            “And, it is a dead-end.

            “you got a name for the narrative you’re promoting?”

            It’s not a narrative. It’s fact. When I go to the other side (HuffPo, et al) I read the comment section to gauge the audience. Very useful, especially in determining the veracity of the claims in the article.

            Unhinged dipshits like CB and DA (and a few more) specifically and directly make this blog a pariah of “far right” lunacy. Their comments overshadow anything and everything James has to say with NSFW vitriol of infantile dialogue… and it would not surprise me to find their source on the Potomac.

            Those that read (the choir), know this. But they shrug it off. Those that are looking for answers are immediately faced with the fact that his audience is 100% certifiable.

            This comment thread needs a “dumbass” vote. Then, if I get them all, I’ll leave, If not, then I’ll know I’m not reading a dumbass.

          • cowbell81 September 11, 2023 at 12:37 pm #

            Maybe the culture has forced us into being 100% certifiable. I can say with certainly, I am a totally different person with an alternate outlook on life and society since the whole Covid scamdemic in 2019.

            And I am sure that all your friends posting on Huffington also display irrational comments a la TDS. Now that should be a certifiable DSM disease you know.

            I take offense JC Penny that you think I do not read and cogitate over what is going through our world and society. Maybe you should watch the recent Biden speech in Hanoi and see how that press event was handled. It speaks poorly on the current administration, but then again is no surprise.

            BTW, Penneys is right down there with Sears in terms of nearly being run out of business. Sad but true, it was a glorious store back in the early part of the last century when business actually catered to the customer.

          • justanotherguy September 11, 2023 at 2:21 pm #

            i read plenty, and i understand the difference between far right lunacy and pissed off people with a coherent pov, expressed loudly.

            if you measure the veracity of anything by the degree to which you see acceptable conformity, or even civility of discourse, you are revealing your own discomfort with conflict.

            specifically, if you accept unquestioningly all the NIST reports about events of 22 years ago, i question whether you were taught how to think critically.

            i’ve been screamed at by people fearful of questioning any part of the ‘popular mechanics’ worldview, by simply stating, there are some things that don’t add up. in reality, the problems with what happened on that day are way larger than that, from the bottom with physics, to the top, with geopolitics.

            “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

            My handle was assigned in Pilot Training. The lazy that imply it has anything to do with a retail store miss the point. Infact, I have a plaque that states it unequivocally: “in JC we trust.” They suggested that I [akin to JC] was a source of knowledge, not your rampaging tin-wit I decry on this thread. You don’t get it.

            That is why I despise you. Stand for function or fall to disfunction. Your display of DUMB makes this site ID’d as DUMB. Whether it’s generated by the NSA or genuine, it doesn’t matter.

            CB suggests I watch a video. Of course I have. And I read the transcript. And I read the VM press version. Y’all just don’t understand it because you refuse to understand it. You cower under your lamentable sheepishness, regaling any transgressors to your ‘approved thought’. Sound familiar? Doubt it.

If the comments section of JHK’s wonderful missives, twice a week, are followed by a bunch of ‘no planes hit the towers’ or ‘no virus has been found,’…or I saw Elvis at Disney!’ then his entire post is relegated to fantasy of inglorious resort.

          Too much smoke.

          And I did see the interview with the dude who was out smoking, minding his own business, when all of a sudden this plane flies low over the building and his head, and then flew on.

            This reflexive paranoia is sort of masturbatory, though, at least in my humble. There are dozens of people, like Barbara Olson, a media figure, on that flight manifest who must have dropped into the bowels of the earth then, if no plane struck the Pentagon.

            Thinking up elaborate alternate explanations for events like that are, beyond a certain point, as useful as biting fingernails or playing endless rounds of a video game.

      A century ago was 1923, just after WWI.
      Were they the strong generation who brought the abundant times, or was it the WW2 generation meaning we have 2 more decades to go before a passing of the “greatest (worst) generation” saecula?
      Conflict/unrest/responsible people-good times/weak people-hard times…
      It’s an interesting theory to say the least. The ancients attributed weakness and prosperity to generational eras. Hence the importance in capturing a generation even to this day.

      Remember Jim’s post from last week, it ain’t “Biden”, it’s the Kenyan running things behind the curtain. I wish people would, collectively, stop blaming “Biden”. He’s a dementia case in point and doesn’t know where he is most of time. He clearly isn’t the one setting the policies. It’s Obama. We all need to blame Obama. Each. And. Every. Day. Maybe his pea-sized egocentric little brain will explode and do us all a great big favor.

      • Uncle Bob September 11, 2023 at 12:56 pm #

        It’s more complicated than just saying “Soetoro” (Obama’s actual last name). Soros, aka the man nobody is allowed to mention unless they want yo be labeled a Jew-hater, runs Soetoro. And Schwab and the WEF largely run Soros, and has their grubby hands all over the environmental movement. Biden was way, way behind in 2020, until future climate czar John F-ing Kerry told Schwab that Biden agreed with Schwab’s goals, and would implement them faster than anyone else — shockingly fast. About the same time, James Clyburn endorsed the crooked prick Biden. This began Biden’s miraculous comeback as money poured in and the news media breathlessly reported on how incredible it was that Biden had come back. Yeah, incredible all right. And enough people believed this was all a spontaneous groundswell of support for “good old Joe” that they voted for him to get rid of Trump. And, because arrogant humanity hates admitting it makes mistakes, they’ll do it again, even if Biden is a known crook and traitor.

        • Paula D September 11, 2023 at 1:50 pm #

          Why would Sotero be Obama’s “actual” last name?

        “I’ve had Obama pegged from the first day. Obama is the ultimate “Manchurian Candidate.” Gay is unimportant. What matters is he was groomed to be president by the Deep State and communist, fascist, globalist enemies of the United States. What matters is Obama is a radical Marxist tyrant carrying out the destruction of America.

        Obama was tame in his first two terms. He was “boiling the frog slowly.” But Trump ruined his plan. Now Obama is trying to destroy this country as fast as he can, before Trump has a second chance to undo the damage.

        And at the same time, Obama is coordinating the attacks on Trump to either imprison him, kill him, or disqualify him.

          You’re correct in your assessment of the people – they’ll never rise to that challenge or the occasion. They are lost. Individually, plan accordingly.

            “Individually, plan accordingly.”

            For many that may well mean leaving the country, if they have the wherewithal and a place to go or already have a foothold elsewhere.

            Otherwise, relocating is extremely difficult—even for dual citizens.

          • Anthea September 11, 2023 at 11:21 pm #

            @ Ron Anselmo:

            I don’t think you can say that, “To cut and run doesn’t solve anything. You either defend your way of life or you lose it.”

            The Mennonites could have stuck around in Germany and Switzerland, where there was zero chance of reforming the governmental or social structure, rather than moving to the US.

            If a person were to take a pessimistic view of our present situation, you could say that our governmental/social structure has already reverted to an autocratic or feudal model. Maybe there is some possibility of dislodging it, maybe through secession, but I’m not sure the will to do so exists among enough people.

            Ultimately, you have to decide who “your” people are. Maybe you don’t have a people any more, except for a handful of friends and relatives. Maybe you don’t have a viable “way of life” any more, in your present location.

            In such a case, the sensible thing to do would be to gather up “your” people and move to where you could live “your way of life,” as a group.

            I don’t foresee being able to do this. Family members are far-flung, and everybody in the family has a recently purchased house and a good or reasonably good job, so they’re busy picking out fruit trees, duvet covers, and onesies for the new baby. No one really expects the Sheriff of Nottingham to come knocking.

            I’m a little scared, though–especially for the long-term. But I probably won’t be around for the long term, anyway.

    • Beryl of Oyl September 11, 2023 at 10:38 am #

      Speaking of serious/not serious, here are a couple of guys just talking over what the heck RFK Jr. is up to.

      From about 14:59 to 23:30

      https://rumble.com/v3g1bn6-free-form-friday-09-08-2023.html

      I recall RFK Jr. saying no way would he go third party should he lose the nomination.

      Curiously, he is just now discovering that the Democrats will put policies in place to keep him out.

      The men in the video find this as strange as I do.

      He didn’t notice what was done to Hillary Clinton, Bernie, and Tulsi Gabbard?

      • Night Owl September 11, 2023 at 11:00 am #

        As I said before, IMO, he has to run with Trump. He has no chance alone. Won’t even get out of the primary.

      • bobfitz03 September 11, 2023 at 11:27 am #

        Ron Paul said the same thing, he ran as Republican. Did not really want to, but third party candidates face too many obstacles and are too easily marginalized.

        • Beryl of Oyl September 11, 2023 at 2:19 pm #

          Ron Paul challenged the results in his election. I did not know that.
          Under the New Rules, he could go to prison for that, instead of going to Congress

          • Rooftop Observer September 11, 2023 at 8:13 pm #

            Huh? That reads like total bullshit, Beryl. Please, kindly direct us all to the statute that makes it illegal to SAY the election was rigged. I won’t hold my breath because you cannot do it.

          • Uncle Bob September 11, 2023 at 10:21 pm #

            Rooftop, that’s essentially what’s happening. Alan Dershowitz discussed it at length with Megyn Kelly today. He said that he would’ve been imprisoned for his work on behalf of Florida voters if the 2020 election fiasco occurred today.

            Dare I say, you are a disingenuous moron. Apologies if I’m overstating that.

            Read any paper – today – and you’ll see that no statutes are required to make such claims.

            See: Jan 6 onlookers, passive participants and DJT.

          • Paula D September 12, 2023 at 12:03 pm #

            RO has a point. There is no statue that says that challenging election results is illegal, and it is obvious that Democrats do it all the time.

            Since there is no law saying it is illegal, the Georgia prosecutor had to invent one in order to prosecute Trump, and then used the actual RICO Act to prosecute 18 others, making a cool 19 defendants. (Shades of 9-11, amirite?).

            It is clearly a malicious prosecution, as I’m sure RO will admit, since there is no actual law, even in Georgia, as we know from listening to Stacey Abrams all these years.

        To receive a presidential ‘pardon’, crimes must first be proven, and then admitted to by the perpetrator.

            For every clip of that day (which would have barely been a story without the manufactured hype) that shows any violence or potential danger caused by the assembled Trumpers…and yes, there are a handful of those…there are hundreds of clips showing people basically on vacation, being waved in by Capitol police to wander and be set up later.

          This “peaceful transfer of power” thing? A transfer implies an agreement between both parties. With mail in ballots, no voter id, and widespread reports of improprieties at the voting precincts why is it not to be assumed that the losing party would take exception? This was not a transfer, it was a taking. The occurrence at the Capitol was a disturbance. Nothing more. We have been put in our place (which is outside the Beltway) by our betters. I wonder what Tim Russert would have had to say about this whole sorry affair? I miss him. He seemed honest.

And thank you for mentioning when somebody actually gets something right. Maryellen Noreika and Matt Gaetz got something right and it should be noted. Hopefully their examples encourage others to do the same.

    This post is Wishful Thinking. The Republicans are not going to impeach Biden, but they will use the lie that they’re about to impeach to raise money. They always lie about being true conservatives, and make big promises to fundraise, and never follow through. I like this site, but it is sad when the author goes off course. One such post said, in essences, “The Russian’s are going to win the war in Ukraine, which means that the US dollar will immediately crash”. That’s not comparing apples and oranges, that’s apples and Volkswagens. Another post was devoted to this amazing Kennedy challenging Biden–his challenge is going nowhere, of course. I wish Mr. Kunstler would stick with reality, and post about things that are actually likely to happen, instead of about things he wishes would happen, but are wildly unrealistic.

    • Yirgach September 11, 2023 at 11:17 am #

      Because no one at all has done anything at all to fix the problem with mail-ballots (ie just get rid of them) that means the 2024 election will be a photo finish repeat of 2020.

            But now basically few even think of demonstrating or protesting—except for tranny rights and other insanity.

            Nothing big, like the Iraq War protests.

    NYC right now is experiencing the consequences of deciding to become a sanctuary city.

    “Every single one of the eight Democrats running for mayor vowed to protect illegal immigrants from deportation, solidifying the Big Apple’s often infamous status as a “sanctuary city.””

    https://nypost.com/2021/06/02/next-mayor-wants-nyc-to-be-even-more-of-a-sanctuary-for-illegals/

    Mayor Adams, who is stupid, is finally throwing in the towel on the idea.

    Incredibly, RFK Jr. is praising him and making stuff up to excuse him. just as he did with Joe Biden and the wide open border:

    “The idea of sanctuary cities was to protect migrants from ICE raids. But no city can manage endless floods of migrants pouring through an open border. Kudos to

    If you click the link you will see that I didn’t leave out the part where RFK says “secure the border”. Border security” is code. I will leave it up to you to figure it out, or not.

    Bobby’s statement about what a sanctuary city is supposed to be, reminded me of the Goldie Hawn character in Private Benjamin saying she thought she was joining that other army.

    No, as sanctuary for those illegally crossing the border is what they asked for, and it is what they got, in spades (OMG was I rayciss?).

    Adams, and others, such as the harridans on The View, are acting like 5th graders- “That’s not FAY-UR!”

      I saw Adams’ hissy fit clip and really enjoyed it. He’s upset 10,000 a month are coming to a city of millions but will be completely unconcered with illegal immigrants if a law can be passed that mandates they stay in TX or any other border state, hopefully forever.

      I think Kennedy is trying in some ways to placate the left and not challenge their obvious hypocrisy about open borders but he’s going to have to pick a side. A friend was saying there’d be no problem if they would just issue work permits to them and they could become “productive, contributing members of the community.” Okay. So do they get to keep getting all the free food, lodging, and medical care? It’s a mess and out of control and won’t be fixed.

      • Heartlander September 11, 2023 at 3:45 pm #

        I remember years ago when my hospital bill for a normal, uncomplicated childbirth came to $10,000…

        and illegal immigrants in our area were getting not only all the hospital expenses for childbirth, but all the preceding months of clinical prenatal care added in, too, for a GRAND TOTAL of $200…

        And though I was very pro-immigrant at the time and very sympathetic to their plight — in fact, I was a volunteer at the community clinic that served them — I nevertheless couldn’t help having the nagging thought: “WHO is paying for this? All the rest of us, that’s who!!”

      • Blackbird September 11, 2023 at 6:20 pm #

        “…there’d be no problem if they would just issue work permits to them and they could become “productive, contributing members of the community.”

        Ummm, yeah there would be a problem… You already have “productive, contributing members of the community” – or they would be if you would just give them the jobs you reserve for aliens.

        We are becoming Ukraine! The whole war over there is because when the US sponsored the overthrow of the democratically elected Viktor Yanukovych in 2014, the 2 Donbass republics (DPR and LPR) stood up and said NO WAY. They refused to recognize the falsely installed puppet regime friendly to the US/EU. These 2 republics were subsequently attacked, relentlessly, for 8 years (!) until Russia stepped in in 2022 to protect the primarily Russian peoples in the DPR and LPR. The point here is that the people, the citizens of the DPR and LPR would not accept the fake “election” and went to war over it. What did the US people/citizens do with the obvious fake election of 2020? Nothing! Lots of armchair name calling and the like but we did nothing of consequence. We cowardly accepted the “JB” (Obama) regime. Until 1 or more states stand up to the lawless Federal govt thugs, nothing will change. We need state leaders like those of the 2014 DPR and LPR regions of Ukraine to tell the US govt thugs NO. The people/citizens of those states then need to either get on board and support their states against the Feds or move out to another state, subservient to the lawless Feds. It’s really that simple. We either fight back or get on our knees because the lawless thugs in power ain’t going to start playing nice.

          Speaking of Ukraine, the people who chose not to stay and defend their way of life (whatever that is) might get big mad if we don’t care about their country more than they do.

          “Curtailing aid to Ukraine will only prolong the war, Mr Zelensky argues. And it would create risks for the West in its own backyard. There is no way of predicting how the millions of Ukrainian refugees in European countries would react to their country being abandoned. Ukrainians have generally “behaved well” and are “very grateful” to those who sheltered them. They will not forget that generosity. But it would not be a “good story” for Europe if it were to “drive these people into a corner”.

      “How do we remove the 200 million people who don’t belong here?”-RD3

      There is a fanatical offshoot of the Climate Change movement, working at high levels within the UN, WEF, IMF, and dozens of NGOs, consisting mostly of academics, activists, and social scientists, who are advocating for depopulation; that is, reducing the world population from 8 billion to 3 billion, which they see as necessary to ‘Save the Planet’. They basically want to liquidate 5/8s of humanity in order to save humanity. These people are serious, they have power, and they are not trying to hide their goals either. Who needs to be wiped out? Why “the Global North”, those who consume the most, and emit the most carbon — you and me essentially. If these true believers get their way in the US, it won’t be 200 million people who don’t belong here who will be removed, but the 150 million who do belong here.

      Apparently after that’s done Climate Utopia will ensue.

          One thing that’s not clear is how are they going to do it, and who will live and who will die? If somehow they could exterminate all Whites you’re talking less than 1 billion people. An obvious target for more population culling would have to be India (1.4 billion) and China (1.3 billion). Brazil, Indonesia, Nigeria & Pakistan have huge populations as well. These countries might object to Globalists demands that they commit mass suicide for the purpose of bringing global temps down 1.5°C by 2100. Look how citizens in Ceylon reacted after their government initiated farming practices mandated by the Paris Climate Accord and food invariably ran short; they sacked the Capitol.

          I would predict if WEF/UN extermination squads, modelled after SS Einsatzgruppen, show up in Florida, they can expect some resistance. ‘Florida Man’ will not go down easy.

            Only those who took Pfizer or Moderna have been injected with LNPs. The other two used an adenovirus vector. Lots of Brits (including myself) had AstraZeneca in early 2020. When the UK government started to shove AZ down the memory hole and move to Pfizer, AZ was passed on to developing countries. I believe it was also used in Canada from the start – maybe Australia and NZ too? Also India, which was manufacturing for AZ.

            So, while, all the compounds are toxic in various ways, only people who took Prizer and Moderna have been subjected to LNPs. Any that I have were kindly donated by my husband, via shedding.

            In the UK – apart from NHS and care home staff who got Pfizered before AZ was approved – the only people who received LNPs are (a) those who went beyond the first 2 AZ doses and got the Pfizer booster and (b) people, mostly under a certain age, who were advised to take Pfizer, rather than AZ because people were aware of blood clots from AZ (not that Pfizer didn’t do the same thing, but the word wasn’t out). That may include at least one of my daughters.

            Hopefully your own son got AZ?

          • OG September 11, 2023 at 6:09 pm #

            You are correct, GA. Canada started with AZ early in 2021. Most people that I know had 1 or even 2 AZ shots before Canada then became a Pfizer shop. My son and daughter both avoided the jabbings earlier on but then each took a couple of Pfizer shots to travel and go to university, respectively.

            “However, the 5 percent of the world population that inhabits North America in no way reflects the racial mix of the world, in which only 16 percent are white. That’s about 1.19 billion people out of a total world population of 7.4 billion. And it’s predicted that by 2060 only 10 percent of the world will be white.” (Rutland Hearld)

You are the only author I have ever encountered with such sustained ability to take complex societal events, analyze, assign sequences as needed, identify central players AND their role (s) then presenting a concise summary that even a simpleton as myself can mentally grasp. Thank You.
    This will be an impeachment of what now passes as “America”. A country is defined by the connection the inhabitants have, the strength and willingness to sacrifice for the countries vigor. We have no such group needed to sustain the notion that “America” exists. Divided by ethnicity, politics, social status (pay taxes – take said money) and now allowing a small minority’s mental illness to be utilized by the new Herr goebbles propaganda team to open a new schism between tribes. MAGA really stands for “ Maybe a generation ago”. That was the cutoff whereby there were still individuals who would willfully address these treasonous actions with direct action. We now dither about events that would have immediately triggered arrest, impeachment, death. The last in reference to Killer cuomo.

      Deuteronomy 28: v14 and v-15 is a remains current; more than we might like.. America will convulse through the rest of this decade; if we include cursing Israel as is our current drift, there is adequate Scriptural warning of the consequences: Curse Israel and you shall be cursed.

      Let us see if that is true…American Constitutional redress is available including the tools to remove elected officials by legal means, up to use of force as evidenced with the Second Amendment placed where it is. Impatience urgings to not employ every and all peaceful means to cleanse government goes beyond the Constitutional framework crafted by our Founding officials (at risk of hanging by the British).

      I personally believe there is a God, but I can’t say I care if you don’t; believe what you wish.

If there is a God, he has the whole picture and you have the point of view of a toddler whining about the constraints placed on him by a wise adult. If there is a God, he’s beyond your understanding.

      Ex 21 7 11. Selling your daughter. He is restricting their liberty to dispose of her.
      20 21. He is limititing the barbarity of their primitive law.

      Luke 12:47 48 not seeing any problem here considering the era.

      Duet 21 … I think your problem is you don’t understand God takes you where your at. So in a primitive society like say Rome even, where they had slaves etc. God is limiting their barbarity with His law.
      Deut 21 has no 28 etc.

      Just a guess of course.

    People actually think that having two arms, two legs, and one head qualified you as a potential America, that and the willingness to work hard. But for what?

    To establish greater Bharat (India)? To establish Aztlan? To extend the House of Peace by making War on the West (Islam)? For the One World State and Green Tyranny?

    Countless White women work with tremendous energy and ability to overthrow our Republic. Are they American? In what sense? They think our history is racist and patriarchical, right? So in what sense?

          I’ve only known of two American men who married foreign women. Rather than write a novel here about the mental illness, constant threats of suicide, and stealing large sums of money from the wife, suffice to say that neither of these guys were very desirable.

          • Anthea September 12, 2023 at 1:24 am #

            I watched those videos on Zerohedge, and I noticed the narrator made quite an issue of the injustice of American women (versus foreign women) expecting men to be the breadwinner support the family. Actually, the opposite is true. Most American women expect to have careers and share in being breadwinners. It is the traditional wife who expects the husband to be the breadwinner.

            Anthea – a co-worker of mine, an unimaginably wonderful older woman – early 70’s, tells me – “Rather than trying to be like a man, I’d rather spend my time trying to be the best woman I can.” God she’s wonderful.

            Ron,

            I’ve always liked this quote from Marilyn Monroe:

            “I don’t mind living in a man’s world, as long as I can be a woman in it.”

            Then again, living in a man’s world cost her dearly.

          • Anthea September 12, 2023 at 12:12 pm #

            @ Ron Anselmo:

            I am actually an ultra-feminine type and never had any desire to “be like a man,” though I think that most women, at least when they’re young, are envious of the freedom men have. Back in the sixties and seventies, a teenage girl or young woman was constantly being reminded of where she could and couldn’t go, what she could and couldn’t do, and whom she could and couldn’t do it with.

            I used to roam the woods as a kid, but there came a time when my mother informed me that I shouldn’t be wandering around independently, because I had to think of my reputation. I was informed that I shouldn’t ride my bicyle around the neighborhood, since doing this (or most any other kind of physical exercise) was “weird,” if you were a girl. My dad used to take side jobs in construction on the weekends, and sometimes he would take my brother with him. I wanted to do this too, but was not allowed to. (I think this was partly because there was vulgar language at construction sites, but also because my dad would have looked silly bringing his daughter along.) If you were a young woman who wanted to travel–usually because you were eager to get away from your home town of BFE (Bum-Fuck Egypt) at the intersection of Tobacco Road and the railroad tracks–this was considered both unsafe and unseemly.

            Meanwhile, the guys were joining the military and going off to foreign lands, or traveling around the country in a VW bus, or even hitchhiking around the country. Here the guys were going places, doing things, and having fun, and here I was, taking a class in bobby-pin tatting at Aunt Elsie’s house. I suppose the late teens and early twenties are years in which the world has kind of a grim visage, for both girls and boys. You imagined that once you got out of high school you’d be “free at last,” and instead you were working at the lumber yard or as a file clerk. But women do tend to think the men get much more freedom.

            In some ways, that’s as it should be. A young woman is like a person with a suitcase full of diamonds chained to her wrist. Her family will be reluctant to let her wander the woods alone, hitchhike to California, attend a rave, join a motocycle gang, or hop in a van with a band of musicians. They’d rather keep her and her diamonds at home, sewing samplers under watchful eyes.

            Possibly the hardest thing to bear about being a woman is that you are under so many restraints, merely by virtue of being a very high-value person.

            I suppose another thing that’s hard to bear is learning the hard way that there are a lot of people who will stop at nothing to get hold of those diamonds.

          • Ron Anselmo September 13, 2023 at 2:47 am #

            Anthea – I haven’t read you wrong. The lady I mention above – I imagine that you and she are cut from nearly the exact same cloth. I know you only from your comments and the wisdom and insight you have, and so freely offer.

            She is very similar. I’ve had many substantial, deeply rewarding conversations with her – you two have many of the same thoughts and values. Truth told, God you’re wonderful too.

            Both your families are fortunate to have such strong, wise, capable and insightful women. I imagine you, like she, will pass that wisdom and guidance down to the younger generations – your kids and grands, as she calls them.

            They’re our best chance and we in turn, are responsible for giving them the chance they deserve. It’s difficult, but we’re up to the task. We just need to put our heads down, put the blinders on and stay hard at work.

            I spent 5 years of military service in Korea. I knew about 100 servicemen married to Korean women. I never met one happily married.

            I don’t entirely blame the women. They are what their culture made them – seeking a secure financial life thru marriage. The man thinks he’s getting an obedient, loving sex kitten. The woman thinks she’s getting a bottomless pot of money.

            Inevitably, both are disappointed.

    Keep writing, because I do enjoy your perspective… but OMG. If there is a way to squelch the “look how stupid his readers are” comments… find a way.

    • OG September 11, 2023 at 12:19 pm #

      Maybe a technical mechanism can be instituted in the CFN comment-posting process whereby you can approve, squelch or deny everyone else’s “free speech” in order to protect our little brains from lunatic thoughts.

      [Hint: JHK does not seem to take to posters’ orders well (and doubly so posters ordering the squelching of others’ First Amendment rights).]

      The American-constitution solution to speech that you disapprove of is not to call it “crazy” and have it banned. No, it is your mandate to counter it with logic, facts and reason. IMHO, you should get with the program. It is a good program.

      Also, keep in mind, many through history were called “crazy” before ultimately being proven ahead of their time and correct. It would be a shame to execute your throw-the-baby-out-with-the-bathwater strategy on the off-chance that CFN is hosting such a thinker today, imho.

          You claim that my comments make CFN difficult for you (a known weasel) to read yet I see your problem as there is not enough participation on the myriad topics that I do not touch.

          Russia dates its birth to A.D. 988, the baptism of Prince Vladimir of Rus’ in the Dnieper at Kiev. Vladimir urged his subjects to likewise convert to Christianity, and thousands of them did. THIS EVENT — a mass embrace of Christianity — is what is considered by Russians the founding of their nation. And it’s been there for 1,000 years. (Ignore for the moment the 20th-century fluke that declared the birthplace of Russia to be not-Russia now.)

          Ponder what a different culture and history this is.. Try to put good or bad out of your mind, and just ponder how DIFFERENT from 250-year-old, secular America.

          The Russian alphabet is called Cyrillic because it was invented by two Christian missionaries, Saints Cyril and Methodius, the Greek-born “Apostles to the Slavs,” who evangelized the Slavic regions in the late 800s. The alphabet has changed over the last 1,100+ years, but the basic bones of the alphabet used by all Russians, Belorussians, Ukrainians, Serbs, and Bulgarians today date to St. Cyril (Kirill) and his brother Methodius.

          There were millennial celebrations in Russia in 1988, even when it was still part of the communist Soviet Union. Even the communists had to recognize the Christian origin of Russia in 988.

          In the Russian language, Saturday is Sybbota = “Sabbath.” In other Slavic languages, the word is very similar. But the word for Sunday in Russian is unique to Russian alone, not shared by any of the other Slavic languages — it is Voskreseniye = “Resurrection.” In the 1920s and ’30s, the Bolsheviks tried to abolish Saturday and Sunday — Sabbath and Resurrection. After 11 years, they finally had to give it up. Turns out, even Bolsheviks couldn’t stomp Resurrection out of Russians.

          Just worth pondering.

      Often right after communists take over a country horrific famines occur that kill millions of people. I think we’ll have the very same experience here in the USA, we’re certainly vulnerable enough. The big difference between the US and most all of the other nations is that we have an extraordinary number of firearms here and probably have a lot of people who won’t hesitate to use them when the right time arrives. Unfortunately what we’ll probably use them for mostly is to kill each other fighting desperately over food. I suppose our rulers will be just fine with that until we start turning all our weapons on *them* and start shooting everyone and anyone we might think might have had something to do with causing our pain.

        I can see our Masters allowing us a little fun and games, but once we start defending ourselves against (“mostly peaceful”) burn, loot, ‘n’ murder, the party’s over. That’s when the Blue Helmets show up to “restore peace” – our Rainbow Warriors being tied-up (in many cases, literally – and getting spanked) in Ukraina and Taiwan.

    I appreciate people who carry on against all odds, and who do not give up the fight for justice.
    It has been 22 years, but the Truthers continue to fight. The Architects and Engineers group is still filing FOI requests, and trying to get a court to step up.

    I consider JHK to be in the group of people who will not give up advocating for justice, no matter how many people are ready to snivel and give up.

          Dead or alive. If alive, where? Trafficked? Celine Dion does need her adren0chr0me, after all.

          If dead, why, 5 weeks after the 8/8 Lahaina fire, does Google report this today (9/11):

          Three weeks after the fire devastated Maui’s historic seaside community of Lahaina, the count of the dead stands at 115.?

          The Lahaina fire stinks to high heaven.

          Actually, it was such a top-priority that they built it at 8′ for 5+ miles asap but are now doubling back to extend its height to 12′.

          12′ is higher than wind, it seems. Go Science!

    One of my favorite quotations: Alexander Solzhenitsyn

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

    My only problem with this piece is the “Generally Accepted Knowledge” that the J6 trials and incarcerations were / are REAL. By “REAL” I must ask: Where are the “fact checkers” investigating all these convicts and / or their families or questioning the whole legal 3 ring circus surrounding the “convictions” and “incarcerations” From the research I’ve done many (if not all) of the “convicts” are apparently military or intelligence actors / plants. Why would the deep state send their own people “up the river”? Seems to me the J6 “trials ” were / are false flag events serving the multiple propaganda purposes. It has already been reported that Congress Critters trying to visit their constituents “in prison” have been turned away. The whole J6 drama smells as bad as the Epstein “suicide” by toilet paper caper.

        From Jeff Childers (the Coffe & Covid blog guy) this morning:

        “Novak ‘No-Vaxx’ Djokovic was also the only unvaccinated player at the tournament. Even non-tennis fans have heard of him because of his jab stance. It made international news when the Australians unceremoniously arrested and deported Djokovic in 2022. In March of this year, Governor DeSantis tried to help Djokovic get to the Miami Open using a loophole in Biden’s federal jab requirement for entry: it didn’t apply to boats.

        But Djokovic didn’t want to use a loophole. It was the principle. It was his body. He didn’t want to come play unless the mandate was dropped. So he missed TWO successive championships. The record-holding player told a BBC interviewer, ‘The principles of decision making on my body are more important than any title or anything else.'”

    “…something has gone very wrong in our country…”

    Below is a broad interpretation of what has gone wrong that I find quite persuasive. It is based on a brilliant 110 page analysis written by N.S. Lyons entitled China Convergence (2023).

    His Historical Background

    Back in the late 19th century, a managerial revolution arose in the U.S. occurring parallel to and building on the industrial Revolution. The mass and scale of organizational structures expanded dramatically back then with masses of workers moving to urban centers, laboring in huge factories and offices, with similar organizational changes taking place in government, education, and almost every other sphere of life. The end result was the mass bureaucratic state, the mass standing army, the mass media, mass public education, and so on.

    This managerial revolution gave rise to a new managerial elite or social class who came to possess the highly technical and specialized knowledge skills necessary to run these institutions. This managerial elite than created its own managerial ideology with its present manifestation being wokeism.

    In contrast to what was initially predicted by Marxists, that the bourgeoise would be threatened from below (by the laboring, landless proletariat) instead, the threat came from above, by this new order of the managerial elite and its legions of papers pushers.

    This conflict was played out most dramatically on Jan. 6, 2021 when mostly members of the petite bourgeoise (the independent middle and working class including small, entrepreneurial business owners, multi-generational family shop owners, family farmers, small-land owners, etc) collectively protested the stealing of Trump’s electoral victory and found themselves in direct conflict with the political representatives (in both political parties) of this powerful managerial elite.

    Thwarting mechanisms as levers of contemporary managerial, totalitarian control . . . (coming next).

      One of the most overlooked of this managerial class phenomenon was how Henry Ford and the Rockefellers quietly re-wrote the U.S. educational system instruction format in order to get their laboring class herded into slots and chutes. The “updates” include Bill Gates’ ‘No Child Left Behind’ from GW Bush, and operators like Barack Obama’s full time private school advocate Arne Duncan.
      What was previously a well-rounded classical education that opened many doors into the larger world (and possibilities) has been taken away as a result. And of course, the Owner class took and continue to take care of their own with private schooling.
      A postscript to this is a lack of both civics instruction and knowledge of actual history, both of which are intentionally disempowering.

    Brits who disagree with “climate crisis” to be sent off to PRISON

    naturalnews.com/2023-09-11-brits-disagree-climate-crisis-sent-to-prison.html

    The British parliament sneaked through a sinister piece of legislation this week that would criminalize Brits for disagreeing with the “climate crisis.”

    As one of its first orders of business following the summer recess, the government of the United Kingdom slipped in a “net zero” bill that, in effect, would make it a crime for someone in the UK to question whether or not man-made climate change is even real.

    For a certain large percentage of lost and depraved humans… the whole notion of ‘Justice’ just does not register. They don’t see it. They don’t want it. And if They did ever see it and know that it was there They would do everything in Their power to completely wipe it off the face of the Earth.

    For the rest of us normal humans… the notion of Justice is woven into the deepest level of our souls. We understand and crave the concept of fairness… of ‘taking turns’ and ‘not cutting the line’. We believe in personal and societal Consequences and that we should be rewarded or punished based upon our personal actions and beliefs.

    But the notions of Justice and Consequences is pretty much absent from the Political and Elitist and Corporate Classes. Most every person who joins that rogue group of primarily grifters has long-ago traded in their soul to the Devil of Privileged Life, personal wealth, and the accumulation of as much power as possible. Laying up Their Treasures on Earth and thinking that They can take all that with them when they get to the Subdivision of The Privileged within Heaven (is it likely there is even such a place? Kind of hard to believe that. I mean, was Saint Peter out to lunch and They all quickly snuck in before he got back?).

    We the People want fairness and justice in our Institutions. And we see little to none of it, anywhere. Many of us have already given up on the idea that we will ever see any kind of justice anymore on this Planet. We want it… we need it… Society benefits from it… and it is being (and has been) erased right before our eyes.

    No, the right idea is not to give up on Justice. Justice is the measuring stick by which we personally – and our Society collectively – should always be measured.

    You don’t throw out the Measuring Stick because you have nothing good to measure. Instead, your bring Justice back in your own circle of Life. You live it… you treat others with it… you demand it from others. And you quit looking to those Institutions from whom Justice should be practiced and dispensed when They have no interest in the idea of Justice at all.

    Institutions function on pledging your soul to harmful agendas of Others. The requirement of turning your back on fairness and the whole notion of Right-and-Wrong. Institutions cannot function when Justice is in The House.

    In short, to achieve and possess Justice… never sell your precious soul to a process that is totally dedicated to your ruin. Justice is not found in some building or person of privilege somewhere. It is only found in the eyes that look back at you in Your Mirror.

      One cannot have justice without truth, for justice based on lies is no justice at all.

      So, the first requirement for dispensing justice is establishing the truth, yet there exists an endless army actively engaged in averting, inverting, and denying truth.

      And that presupposes the hoi polloi are even interested and accepting of the truth, the truth being so often unbelievably horrifying, i.e., you can lead a horse to water but you cannot make him acknowledge its existence and admit to its veracity.

      • Roundball Shaman September 11, 2023 at 6:16 pm #

        KappaJoe: “One cannot have justice without truth… that presupposes the hoi polloi are even interested and accepting of the truth… you can lead a horse to water but you cannot make him acknowledge its existence and admit to its veracity.”

        A desire for Truth must indeed by necessity precede any fruitful path of discerning Truth… and then pursuing and dispensing Justice based upon those ‘truths’.

        Truth in today’s Age for many has become like the ‘N’ word – something to be discarded as patently offensive from a prior unenlightened time. These such persons now believe truth is little but a sliding scale of personal whims, lusts, prejudices, feelings, and desires… ‘It’s MY Truth!’.

        Truth tellers and Truth pursuers are today’ s pariahs. Only those who conform to State and Anti-social media norms and memes and narratives are viewed as having worth or status in such a twisted Societal Age as we find ourselves. Yet, there are many that wear that Pariah status as a badge of courage in an Age of Falsehood.

        Truth does not exist due to or depend upon anything ‘human’. Truth is not created by human beliefs or intervention. Truth has an independent existence that Universe manifests all on its own. One then chooses to either find and rejoice in found truths or deny and pay those consequences of denial.

        You can indeed lead a horse to water. And that horse might just discern truth way better than most humans today. Just another benefit of being a creature that doesn’t listen to State Media or gaze endlessly into a cellphone.

      • Islander September 11, 2023 at 7:31 pm #

        An ongoing issue with these discussions is that “covid” is used to refer to both the illness and the virus (and the “pandemic”). .

        “Covid” refers ONLY to the illness caused putatively by virus X, which we were told was the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

        Covid-19 is the name of the ILLNESS, not THE VIRUS. I always suspected that “they” gave this illness a “brand” in order to confuse the public. But two nerds like Yeadon and Kirsch should be more careful.

        The continual conflation of the disease/symptoms, which are concrete, with the specific virus, which we do not know concretely exists, just magnifies confusion.

        It really muddies the discussion, and I am very surprised that both Yeadon and Kirsch conduct this confusing dialogue where they are using one term for the pandemic, the virus, and the illness with symptoms.

        It is annoying.
        It is IMO unscientific.

        They also end up talking at cross purposes and we can’t get a clear answer to Kirsch’s question regarding his own illness. 54:06, Yeadon does not answer Kirsch’s rather obvious question, one asked my many here: What WERE the tests testing? Yeadon seems to say, NOTHING. Any association of pink lines with symptoms was random.
        IMO that is not good enough.

        At the same time Kirsch asks Yeadon to provide ballpark figures on, say, how many people might have died out of 1,000 who got the jab.

        Without rigorous controlled experiments there is no way to know this.

        I don’t know why Yeadon doesn’t say: “Steve, that is why RCTs are conducted: to establish this rate. So your question, our question, should be: Why are we reduced to guessing because no meaningful trieal were ever done with these jabs?”

    • Islander September 11, 2023 at 9:13 pm #

      Well, I don’t think Yeadon “destroys” Steve Kirsch in this interview. It is definitely a mixed bag.

      Kirsch lets Yeadon speak for ca. 45 mins uninterrupted. Then Kirsch starts asking a few specific questions, at ca. 54:00. Yeadon comes across as very excitable after ca. 56: and doesn’t wait for Kirsch to finish speaking. Yeadon seems only to want to repeat his own main points but not to engage in a dialogue with Kirsch.

      He keeps shaking his head and saying no, no. while Steve is speaking—which looks like an uncontrolled, emotional response, and quite rude, but also communicates a level of anxiety to listeners. Also—giving silly answers like “I lost interest in that quite early,” which does not answer Steve’s questions, such as to how a reasonable test of the PCR tests could be designed. He does not seem able to calmly listen to Steve’s questions and then discuss them calmly and put them in the context of his own preoccupations. But Steve’s questions are perfectly reasonable in light of the fact that his nonprofit is the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation.

      Yeadon discounts as “detail by the side of the road” Steve’s suggestions as to how one might get to the bottom of some of the nuts and bolts—say, regarding the PCR test.Instead IMO Yeadon should be saying: Yes, these are the types of tests we need to do to nail down the multitude of scams that make up the whole operation. He should be willing to meet Steve halfway because Steven’s questions are valid and millions share them. Just airily waving them away is annoying to me. Eventually Yeadon did recount —very quickly—the technical aspects of manufacturing the tests, and why the speed with which they were produced was not realistically possible.

      Yeadon only wants to talk about the Big Picture, He doesn’t seem to have thought about how the big Picture works. His responses to SK’s questions on that were, again, unfocused and all over the place.

      1:05:00 Yeadon doesn’t answer SK’s question about the correspondence of Sanger (??) testing to illness. Yeadon again goes off into another generality but won’t focus on the specifics. Kirsch’s frustration is obvious.

      Yeadon’s comment on 5G are pretty confusing. He says that 5G is needed. What could he mean? Yeadon just called smartphones satanic rectangles—a negative. Kirsch is confused. I think Yeadon means to say that “they” need 5G to complete their plan of total control. But Kirsch is confused, and rightly so. Because Yeadon is not focused and is jumping around.

      Then he and Kirsch are speaking at the same time about the Internet, so more confusion.

      I agree with most of what Yeadon says.
      But Most people who are new to this subject matter will not be won over by Yeadon in this particular interview. He needs to breathe deeply, listen, and think before he speaks, and not keep shaking his head and saying no, no while Kirsch frames a question. It is Kirsch’s show and he is giving Yeadon a platform.
      Yeadon does not state categorically that there is no virus causing illness. He keeps going back to the mortality statistics, but that does not answer the question.

      He doesn’t seem to have given thought to exactly who, if anyone, is in charge of the conspiracy. So that comes across like generalized paranoia and not like a clear-eyed analysis of available evidence. Eventually he does mention the WEF and Gates, and the table games or whatever they are called.

      He definitely did not “destroy ” Kirsch at all, IMO. At the end they acknowledge the seriousness of the situation, and that they are allies.

      • Night Owl September 12, 2023 at 3:06 am #

        He destroyed Kirsch.

          You have way too much invested in Yeadon.

          Which is not to disagree with Yeadon or fight with him.

          But you seem to be projecting adversarialsim where I do not see it. .

          Pls indicate points in the interview where Yeadon “destroyed” Kirsch.

          Kirsch gave Yeadon a platform for Yeadon to state his views, and for for dialogue.

          IMO Yeadon stated his views but did not really “dialogue” with Kirsch.

          I would be interested to hear others’ views on this interview. The Rumble URL is much easier to watch than the first one provided.

          • Night Owl September 12, 2023 at 2:36 pm #

            Kirsch was refusing to engage him on his points. When Kirsch didn’t have an answer he fired off random nonsense (such as the part about Mac addresses) to make Yeadon seem too out there for the discussion. Tossing every odd conspiracy at him.

            He also kept looking around and behind him, looking disinterested, and more or less doing what one would expect of a gatekeeper. Got pretty bad in the last 30 minutes.

            Doesn’t matter. He has a vibe, and that vibe is not good. This interview was very enlightening. There are clearly topics Kirsch won’t allow to be taken seriously–basically the idea that a novel deadly virus exists and that there is a global level conspiracy to put us in a digital plantation that we will never leave.

            I have very little interest in Kirsch at this point, and McC and Malone are also somewhat suspect.

          • GreenAlba September 12, 2023 at 2:39 pm #

            I’m a huge Yeadon fan, but I don’t think this was Mike’s finest hour.

            I don’t blame him for doing the occasional less impressive interview. He’s done about 150 full-length interviews on this stuff. He deserves a medal. But the ’round table’ with John O’Looney, Sasha Latypova and Meryl Nass was much better, in my opinion.

            I think people come over differently to different people. I sent a link to my daughter who repeatedly asks me not to mention this stuff because it freaks her out – it was Mike Yeadon speaking a while ago to the guy on Hearts of Oak. I thought it was a good interview – my daughter just saw someone making sensationalist assertions without any evidence. We’ve got a fight on our hands, even though we know we’re right. 🙁

          • GreenAlba September 12, 2023 at 2:42 pm #

            I’ll have to listen to it again as I don’t even remember the MAC addresses! Maybe I nodded off or was otherwise distracted.

          • Night Owl September 12, 2023 at 3:19 pm #

            Watch the last 35 mins or so.

            Yeadon speaks from the heart and has the background to delve into the scientific points.

            Kirsch’s attitude toward him was as though he is some kind of wild-eyed tin-foiler.

            The energy from him is so bad that one almost does not even need the audio.

            Now why would Steve do that to Mike?

            Let us ponder this.

          • Islander September 12, 2023 at 3:46 pm #

            “Yeadon speaks from the heart and has the background to delve into the scientific points. ”

            Yes, Yeadon speaks from the heart.
            In this interview he did not IMO deal clearly with scientific points. He came across as quite distracted and did not answer Kirsch’s questions coherently.

            My sense of Kirsch was that he was frustrated by Yeadon’s not dealing with scientific points.

            I know I was.

            Kirsch did not refuse to engage Yeadon. It was Kirsch’s show, and it is normal for Kirsch to ask questions of his guest.

            It is not reasonable for the guest to continually interrupt the host and keep shaking his head and saying no, no.
            That was a weak performance.

            It seems like any criticism of a particular interview is taken by you as an attack on Yeadon.

            IMO it was also a weak response of Yeadon to say he didn’t want to cause dissension and then not answer a reasonable question.

            He could easily have said: “This is an area on which I disagree with X.” And then explain his viewpoint.

          • Islander September 12, 2023 at 3:50 pm #

            I, too, don’t remember anything about Mac addresses.
            But the segment of the interview about the internet was incoherent because both men were speaking at once.

            Yeadon’s drifting off into talking about runners drinking too much water to explain the issue of doses was also an odd detour.

          • Night Owl September 12, 2023 at 6:04 pm #

            You are free to believe what you like.

            There is virtually no science coming from the virus crowd.

            They are perpetuating concepts that act as a distraction in the service of those who plan to enslave us.

            No isolate. No tests. No unusuall mortality. A 99.9% survival rate even with multiple comorbidities. A “virus” that spread around the world in 3 months after they showed us the Wuhan Godzilla films.

            You will piece it together at some point.

          • Islander September 12, 2023 at 8:51 pm #

            Yeadon could have clarified these issues on this podcast.

            All he had to do was respond appropriately to Kirsch’s questions.

            “You will piece it together at some point.”

            No, we are talking about this interview.
            Opportunities were lost because Yeadon was too emotional and unfocused to respond clearly to questions that many people are asking, including at this blog. Quite important questions.

            Re “You will piece it together at some point,” eff off with your silly little superiority complex (kindly meant).

          • Night Owl September 13, 2023 at 5:03 am #

            Ah, yes. “Superiority” because I ask for

            –The isolate of “Covid-19”

            –Proof that a PCR test (“the gold standard”) can detect “Covid-19” or any illness (Mullis said it cannot)

            –Proof that a virus could spread around the world in a few months

            –Proof that Wuhan Godzilla films were real

            –Proof that “Covid-19” if shown to exist was deadly

            Etc.

            Where is it?

          • Islander September 13, 2023 at 5:43 pm #

            Oh, come on.

            No. “superiority” because of your tone and putdowns.

            I am sorry that I have not been able to convey to you why IMO Yeadon’s performance in this interview was weak, he did not “destroy” Kirsch, etc. This is not a loyalty test. His importance is not, or not only, “speaking from the heart” but actually explaining the scientific issues clearly, when asked to do so.

            I do not need to piece together the big picture that this is some kind of worldwide plot. Come on.

            What I, and I believe others, need is scientific info to get a clearer picture of the workings of the plot.
            .

          • Night Owl September 14, 2023 at 4:27 am #

            Putdown?

            I pointed out that you gloss over obvious fraud.

            Where is the isolate?

            Why would you believe anything when they show you nothing?

            Perhaps you will not figure it out.

    Mexico is too tightly connected to the USA. So, the effects of inflation, shortages and looming social disruption will simply be mirrored there as well.

    As someone who essentially commutes back and forth, I’ve had plenty of time to think through where I’ll be: right here.

    I’d rather be a native who speaks the language and can defend myself, rather than a guest no matter how well I get along.

    That being said, for anyone thinking of leaving, they might consider Novorossiya. As part of the BRI, and a target of both Russian and Chinese investment once the war is settled, it could very well be the next major hot spot.

    I remember my first trip to China 25 years ago – it’s only taken that long to go from clogged 2 lane roads to monster interstates.

    I see a repeat taking place.

      I disagree with you a little.

      Mexico, through its cartels, is draining us. Capital is flowing into Mexico through the illicit trades.

      I do agree though that Mexico, that resents the USA through two centuries of conquest, will gladly join BRICS++ when asked.

      The really sad thing though is that the Deep State is voluntarily selling us down the river. See below post.

        China is also very much involved. From Brookings in 2022:

        The physical footprint of Mexican criminal groups in China is minimal, consisting mostly of a few individuals and business trips. In contrast, the presence of Chinese criminal actors, connections, and networks in Mexico is far bigger and growing. Beyond bases in Sinaloa’s Culiacán and Lazaro Cárdená, one of the major transshipment places for precursors, Chinese criminal networks are also believed to have cells in cities like Mexicali, Veracruz, Tampico, and Michoacán’s Aguililla, a transshipment hub for precursors, I was told by current and former U.S. and Mexican government officials and investigative journalists in Mexico. Indicted by the U.S. Treasury Department for fentanyl trafficking, the Zheng Cartel and its storefront Global United Biotechnology Inc. and other cover companies including veterinary care, computer and other retail, and chemical companies, also have operations in Mexico.

        Chinese money traders and businesses also increasingly launder money for Mexican cartels. Drazen Jorgic’s Reuters report details Chinese informal money transfer systems that — through mirror transactions in Mexico, China, and the United States — cleanse money of criminals while enabling Chinese businesses and citizens to evade China’s capital controls. These Chinese money transfers are even displacing established Colombian and Mexican money launderers.

    Out of Imprimis, from the pen of Victor Davis Hanson.

    Imperialism: Lessons from History

    Synopsis in a few words,

    Empires expand by investing their capital into outward ventures, such as Ukraine, but “steal” from their own people in the meantime, such as San Francisco or Chicago. He shows how many empires have done the same thing, Rome, USSR, Athens, Britain, Spain and now the USA.

    Three characteristics are in common, the first being the leaders believe their imperialist policies have little to do with self-interest, second, their dependence on military might for enforcement and third, the costs of control outweigh the benefits. The leaders are seduced by the glory of absolute power, but become corrupted by it.

    From the article, Rudyard Kipling presented a poem to Queen Victoria in 1897,

    Recessional

    “Far-called, our navies melt away/ On dune and headland sinks the fire/ Lo, all our pomp of yesterday/ Is one with Nineveh and Tyre/ Judge of the Nations, spare us yet/ Lest we forget – lest we forget.”

    What a poetic picture of the USA Today.

        …and boy oh boy, do they LUST for Russia. It’s an obsession, and it goes back decades. If you wonder why the hell we’re involved in a war in Ukraine, consider what the bastards have come right out and said over the years:

        “Against Russia, at the expense of Russia, on the ruins of Russia” (Brzezinski)

        – British Prime Minister John Major:
        “Russia’s task after losing the Cold War is to provide resources to prosperous countries. But for this they only need 50-60 million people.”

        – Advisor to the President of the United States Zbigniew Brzezinski:
        “The smaller the population in this territory (USSR and Russia), the more successful its development by the West will be.”

        – Bill Clinton:
        “NATO’s goal is in the future to introduce peacekeeping (?) forces into areas of ethnic conflicts and border disputes from the Atlantic Ocean to the URALS MOUNTAINS.”

        – Henry Kissinger:
        “The collapse of the USSR is undoubtedly the most important event of our time, and the Bush administration has shown amazing skill in its approach to this problem… I prefer chaos and civil war in Russia to the trend of reuniting it into a single, strong, centralized state.”

        – Michelle Casey:
        “To avoid further senseless bloodshed, the Kremlin must lose the empire it still retains.”

        – Lech Walesa:
        “Trim Russia down to 50 million,” using for this the uprising of 60 nations…

        – US Congressman James Raskin:
        “Russia must be completely destroyed “at any cost.”

          Granted, it may not matter much, since this may only extend the time to the inflection point of relative order to total chaos.

          The current Chinese-Russian alliance if continued and strengthened means a much quicker demise for the US and its decaying culture, so maybe that’s a good thing?

        • Anthea September 12, 2023 at 9:55 am #

          @ Heartlander:

          If you look at the overall world situation, it’s very puzzling. We have the Western powers (the Davos crowd, etc.) wanting to control and plunder Russia’s resources–as well as those of Ukraine. At the same time, they are detroying Western societies, economies, and currencies.

          At the same time, China is quietly gaining control of resource-rich countries all over the world–notably in Africa and South America. But tucsonspur mentioned above that there is quite a large Chinese presence in Mexico. I’d say that if you control the drug trade, and hence the drug cartels (who are just their employees), you control Mexico. There is also a large Chinese presence in Canada. Here in the US, one could easily get the impression that the Chinese are already in near-total control of the US government.

          Sometimes I think that, one day ten or twenty years from now, Americans will wake up one morning to an awareness that we’ve become essentially a colony of China–and that we are one of many, including Canada, Mexico, Africa, most of South America, and probably also Australia. The Chinese will have shrewdly and unobtrusively taken over most of the world, without firing a shot. All of China’s new colonies will still be full of pesky humans, but they’ll figure something out to solve that problem.

          The part I don’t get is why the Western powers have undertaken a controlled demolition of the West. Maybe Ukraine is not so much about conquering Russia as it is about bankrupting (and disarming) the West. How do the elites benefit from the destruction of the West and Western Civilization? Why destroy Europe? And, for that matter, why destroy the US?

          • JohnAZ September 12, 2023 at 12:25 pm #

            Could it be?

            The WEF is a finale to the United Nations/EU movements of the WW2 times. I do not believe that Truman et al wanted global control of the US, more like US dominance of the United Nations because the world could not be trusted to keep the peace.

            At the time, China was a backwater, a victim of the Japanese Empire. They were not even included in the conversation.

            So combine the UN with NATO and you have tada, WEF.

            To obtain the global power for the Davos crowd, the USA must be removed as the grand leader of the western world. Hence the attempted subjugation of America. It also explains the belittlement of Trump who just said no to this crowd,

            A surprise is the selling out by folks in the US to the WEF credo. That includes the Biden Mob. Our dying empire will try to maintain itself but will lose in the long run.

            The WEF is not trying to destroy Europe or America, they just want them subservient to the global government, WEF style. Load them up with subservient, socialistic peoples, mostly dark in complexion and the power conversion is complete.

            Uh oh, nobody told China and Russia about these grandiose plans for the world. BRICS++, a compendium of that group is in opposition to the WEF. IMHO, these two groups are already in competition with each other. Ukraine is the first flash point.

            The neocon, MIC target for two generations has been Russia, the Wag the Dog target. The WEF jumped right on to this.

            China, their smiles getting broader has been in the wings, getting ready to challenge the West, IOW, the WEF.

            The future will be WEF vs. BRICS++ with the primary focus of the BRICS++ group being the powerhouse of the WEF, the USA.

            Whether WEF or BRICS++, the world is out to destroy the power of the US. We are no longer powerful enough to fend them off, thanks to our own Deep State.

            @ JohnAZ:

            I am not buying the idea that the WEF is not trying to destroy Europe and America, since it seems to me that that is exactly what it is actively doing and, to a great extent, has succeeded in doing. They’ve been hard at work eroding the West’s cultural/religious/moral basis since around 1900. Now we’re seeing the West’s economic and monetary destruction.

            From the 1700s until the mid-20th Century, the Western powers were the colonial powers that controlled most of the world’s resources. What you see now is China emerging as a colonial power, in the sense that it’s gaining control of most of the world’s resources. This seems to be going largely unnocticed. Maybe that’s because the conquest and control methods are not military.

            So there is this huge shift in control of the world’s resources from West to East.

            Curiously, the Western power centers (call them the WEF, I guess) seem to be actively colluding in this process.

            You can say that the WEF wants to destroy the West to make it “subservient” to some projected future worldwide totalitarian regime, but I’m not buying that either. I don’t see any sense in them destroying what they want to rule over. Sensible rulers want to rule over prosperous, productive, orderly, law-abiding nations, so that they can extract the maximum amount of wealth. You want to be the ruler of Rhodesia, not the ruler of Zimbabwe.

            Generally speaking, a ruler doesn’t set out to purposely destroy his country and its productive capacity–to destroy its industry, its agriculture, and the character of its people.

            What we are actually seeing is the WEF (the presumed real tulers of the West) sinking their own ship–and in many cases parting it out.

            I wonder if maybe they see–and have seen for a couple of decades–that it’s Game Over. The monetary and financial edifice–which was the real source of their wealth and power– is collapsing. The question becomes, “how to squeeze a few last bucks out of this decaying mess, before it collapses completely.” I wonder if the deliberate destruction of the West is essentially a final looting operation. The old guy is on his death bed and far enough gone that it’s time to go through his pockets and rifle the dresser drawers. And the reason he’s as good as dead is because they’ve bled him dry, and they know it. So the WEF is acting in the role of so many pick-pockets and rag-pickers.

            As an aside, they know they can’t win in Ukraine or defeat Russia. The war in Ukraine is just another looting operation.

            I don’t really see the WEF (or whoever they are) wanting to rule over a toothless, impoverished West full of internal conflicts–and populated by a mish-mash of unproductive and ungovernable people.

    I couldn’t get all the way through the Jimmy Dore interview with Cornell West.
    Every time Jimmy tried to get Cornell to see that most Americans care more about economic devastation and war mongering than white supremacy and trans rights, Cornell doubled down, self-righteously proclaiming that he is a victim of white supremacy (yeah, right, a Harvard grad who has spent years teaching in Ivy League colleges), and how could anything be more important than trans rights?
    He also kept insisting that Trump is “fascist” because he tried to stay in the White House.

    RFK Jr. names three of the giant monsters of Capitalism:

    Blackrock, Vanguard, and State Street.

    ‘These three companies operate under some type of shell corporation, RFK Jr. continued, and the purpose of their massive housing buy-up is to advance the Great Reset, and enact the will of the World Economic Forum. “You will own nothing, and you will be happy,” is the WEF’s Great Reset motto, and it’s coming to fruition right under our noses.

    I was contacted by the corporate communications team at BlackRock in September, who claimed that “BlackRock is an active investor in the U.S. real estate market, but we are not among the institutional investors buying single-family houses.”

    I asked Alexander Williams, BlackRock’s rep, to clarify whether they engaged in home purchases through shell and shadow corporations, and to prove that all claims made by RFK Jr. were false. He stopped responding — so you tell me who is the more trustworthy and believable person in this debate?’

    Dear JHK Admin,
    “And the public will finally see the case against “Joe Biden” and his family laid out carefully, precisely, and coherently, with high and grave decorum.”

    Good luck with that. Since Republicans gunning for President Biden have failed to present evidence that actually links President Biden to criminal activity. Somehow, I am guessing that these folks are going to have to do a lot more than the hand-waving they are doing now that you believe makes the case slam dunk. As in prove a case–as has been done in Federal Court with umpteen numbers of folks charged with crimes and CONVICTED for 6 Jan 2020 activities, which you somehow ignore in proclaiming these same folks’ innocence. So, you can say that they are all innocent, but they were found guilty–so many of them–by juries. Why do you actually think they are innocent? So, how exactly is this progressions of guilty verdicts evidence of malfeasance by the courts? That bit I don’t get.

    What I do get is that the point has never been to actually mount a case against Biden–it is to smear him and the impeachment process itself to help Donald Trump. I think the Republicans have been quite successful in that–who needs evidence? When the whole thing fizzles, I expect people here to ignore that, grumble about “blind American justice” and go on and pretend that cases were made. Unlike President Biden, former President is facing 90+ charges on four indictments in multiple jurisdictions. Yeah… deep state, EVERYONE is out to get poor misunderstood crusader Trump. No.EVERYONE is deep state. Occam’s razor might suggest that a simpler explanation is that the former President might have been involved in shenanigans. But, no.

    Finally, I think it is quite reasonable to ask questions of President Biden’s fitness for another four year term, but the lack of scrutiny on the right for former president Trump fitness on the same basis is a tad strange to me. The former President is old, and has a habit of saying many nonsensical things in a “sun-setting” rambling style that leaves me with the impression that he has also lost a step or three from his use of language earlier in his career. In any case, I think he is one fast food embracing, golf club hitting, cholesterol clogging heart attack away from leaving this planet if dementia doesn’t get him first.

      • hustled enough September 12, 2023 at 12:37 am #

        Hi tom clark,
        Thanks for the reply. If you like Kristy Noem for VP, she agrees with you. She is being absolutely nice to the former President. Maybe that will count for something with DT. Maybe not? As for the “WE” in the “WE are the government” I don’t think that allows folks to take up violence against their government when they don’t like the result of an election that they think was stolen. And I suspect that you believe that they were justified–but no justification could be shown in the courts, and if we are a nation that respects laws, that means the way you show your truth is through the courts. And those who have argued that the previous President’s claims are correct with regard to the election have NOT been able to produce the level of evidence required to prove these claims in any court of law. I don’t think DT’s face will be doing TR’s.

        • tom clark September 12, 2023 at 9:12 am #

          HE…I’m no Kristy Noem fan, but I still think Donny’s courting of Kristy for VP is so he can have a place reserved for himself as a 5th face on MR.

      So, “hustled enough” believes Biden is innocent of any wrongdoing and Trump has dementia as severe as Biden’s.

      There’s really no point in arguing with extreme stupidity.
      But on the bright side, you can fill in for Rachel Maddow when she vacations. I’m sure her audience won’t learn anything distressingly true from you.

      • hustled enough September 12, 2023 at 5:26 pm #

        Hello hmuller,
        If you read my original post carefully, I am not saying President Biden is innocent–what I am saying is that those who accuse him of wrong doing haven’t produced evidence that would support such a conclusion–in a court of law or in an impeachment proceeding. This is for political gain. There is a lot more on the former President then there is on the current one–at this point in time. You know, 90+ charges in 4 different jurisdictions.

        As for DT and possible dementia? Mileage will vary on this, but if you were to turn around and accuse DT of all the types of gaffes and stumbles that the Right says about JB, you would be able to make a similar case about DT (and people on the Left do exactly that). 78 is getting up there… and I guess you are acknowledging that DT has dementia, just not as severe as JB, in your mind. Is that really the rallying cry you want to use to endorse DT to be “Leader of the Free World” again?

        I also think you are probably right that “[t]here’s really no point in arguing with extreme stupidity.”

        • hmuller September 14, 2023 at 11:30 am #

          The Trump haters can file 9 million charges in court if they wish. That doesn’t mean the charges have merit. Ever hear of “lawfare”, oh enlightened one?

          Compare those Trump impeachments over trivial nonsense to the Biden crime family taking millions in bribes. Oh, you’ll say that’s not proven. Give it time. If your kind had their way such Biden corruption would never be investigated. Do I need to educate you on the favoritism and hands off approach shown by DOJ, FBI, et al.

          Many judges appointed by Democrats are ideologically driven attack dogs with no respect for justice, truth, or the Constitution. I don’t give a fuck what the evil bastards say.

          No, I don’t believe Trump has noticeable dementia.

          • hustled enough September 14, 2023 at 11:01 pm #

            You know hmuller, thank you for getting back to me. I was wondering where you had gotten off to.
            As for the claims you advance–what evidence are you referring to in the “Biden crime family”? You have Republicans “full of sound and fury” but UNABLE to provide evidence for the claim–we have money, which MUST be from criminal activity!!! It must!!! I tell you; it must!!!” OK, so where is the evidence? DT has more money; his son-in-law gets lovely deals with the Saudis worth billions? Why no outrage there? I am all for you to make a case–but even the Republicans acknowledge that this is a political stunt designed–not at establishing truth but aimed at associating the President with a wrong doing that the Republicans have no actual interest in proving.

            How do I know this, hmuller–because as of yet–there is no evidence; just innuendo. DT would have been convicted twice already on that level, if you want Biden gone.; than DT begone!

            As for “hands off approaches” … Hunter B is getting heavy handed treatment not meted out to many. So, is this evidence of favouritism? Mileage varies on that one. I haven’t seen Jared hauled up on influence peddling. Maybe that will change. As for judges–I want to point out that many of the judges handling 6 Jan cases, and other cases dealing with DT cases, etc are Trump appointees who are sticking to the issues of the law … so, how is that “ideologically driven” meme working for you? DA’s? Yes, you can make a case there, but it works both ways. The KEY is: Can they make their cases? So far, plenty of people have gone to gaol found guilty by juries of their peers. And yet, you have nothing to say about that–they are all stitch up jobs in your mind?

            And no, I don’t think Biden has dementia either, but he is old. And so is DT. And they have lost a step.That won’t stop you voting for DT.

    RealSpikeCohen

    This man’s name is Rick Rescorla.

    22 years ago today, Rick disobeyed orders, and saved 2700 lives.

    Rick was the head of security for Morgan Stanley in the South Tower of the World Trade Center. He warned that the Towers’ basements were vulnerable to attack.

    His warnings fell on deaf ears.

    Then the 1993 attack happened, and people started listening to him.

    After that attack, Rick implemented regular evacuation drills, using his megaphone to direct the thousands of employees out of their offices, down the stairwells, and out of the building to safety.

    Born in Cornwall, Rick would sing Welsh and Cornish songs from his megaphone, as he directed the employees out of the building.

    He would routinely tell all of the employees: in an emergency, no matter what chaos is happening around you, no matter what anyone tells you, leave your offices, go down the stairwells, and leave the building.

    Rick told his wife Susan that he suspected another attack on the World Trade Center would happen, this time by air.

    And 22 years ago today, on September 11, 2001, that attack happened.

    When the first plane hit the North Tower, the Port Authority announced over the South Tower’s speaker system “Please do not leave the building. This area is secure.”

    Rick ignored them.

    “The dumb sons of b——s told me not to evacuate,” he said to his best friend Dan. “They said it’s just Building One. I told them I’m getting my people the f–k out of here.”

    And so Rick picked up his megaphone as he had done so many times before, told his employees not to listen to the orders, and directed them out of the building.

    His Cornish songs helped keep their nerves calm as they evacuated, even after the second plane hit their Tower.

    Once he had successfully evacuated his employees, Rick went back to look for survivors.

    But first, he called his wife Susan.

    “Stop crying. I have to get these people out safely. If something should happen to me, I want you to know I’ve never been happier. You made my life.”

    Rick rushed back to the South Tower.

    That was the last time anyone saw him alive.

    All but 6 of the more than 2700 Morgan Stanley employees survived.

    Had they obeyed the Port Authority, they would all be dead.

    Thankfully, they listened to Rick instead.

    Rest in Peace, Rick. Thank you for your service.

    Jarek: As Whitman said, obey little. Question much. Spike says the same. Those who disobeyed in Lahaina lived. Those who obeyed died. At one of the huge industrial fires in India, the workers were ordered to remain at their posts. Why does Management do this? Because maintaining Control is life itself to them. They can’t admit that things are out of control or not working.

    Above, one of posters seems to boast about never getting kicked off the site. How does that fit in with Whitman and Spike are saying? At his best, he’s for non-conformity, but he’ll deny his best to win an argument. Because such victories, though lacking all integrity, are life itself to him.

          ZN does neither because his pride won’t allow him to act like a man. I hate pride and, therefore, always clash with the prideful.

          If you asked ZN where he stands on the mentally ill healing, he’d be all supportive to beat the band … but threaten his pride and he’ll repeatedly kick you in the ribs once you’re already down.

          ZN is a pathetic little man and he was trying to keep that on the down-low. He’s used to outsmarting most and schmoozing the rest while he can do neither with me.

          So he lashes out like the little girl “he” is.

    Yes. This long and tedious political and legalistic process is a form of torture and is also trauma inducing. My hopes are admittedly dim in regards to the Republican House’s efforts on the impeachment front. What is the regime willing to do to distract the public from such an outcome? But it is fun to consider all the possibilities! Just imagine if somehow the House defunds the regime and actually impeaches Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Alejandro Mayorkas and Merrick Garland.

    “Anyway, the actual issue is not whether it’s politically advantageous to lay off “Joe Biden,” but the irrefutable fact that he (and the shadowy figures running his regime) are wrecking the country. He (they) can do a lot more damage in the many months leading up to January, 2025, especially around the dangerous idiocy that the US foreign policy gang pursues so blindly in Ukraine.” ~ JHK

          Well no. Since there is already a whole lot of evidence of FBI misconduct and infiltration in the Jan 6 space I think one could definitely argue a great case that the FBI, the Capitol Police, Congress, DHS, the Pentagon, etc., were all involved in a massive conspiracy that actually was meant to deprive the voting public of their constitutional rights. Additionally they instigated violence in order to halt an official proceeding and so they are thereby guilty of insurrection. Perhaps RICO charges could be applied too since there was clearly coordination and collaboration to make the events of that day into a yarn that these entities could spin to set in motion their rolling coup.

      A government shutdown has the potential to gain everyone’s attention.
      This would present an opportunity to tell the population about the big picture.

    The UN General Assembly will be hosting high level meetings later this month in NYC. The meeting on the 20th is focused on the pandemic prevention, preparedness and response treaty. I note how they don’t reference the treaty itself which is clever. If you take a look at the zero draft you’ll find that the aim is to create a global governance structure with the World Health Organization as the central authority. The zero draft also discusses national governments building out emergency response infrastructure and creating laws to conform to pandemic prevention protocols and 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development goals. And! The treaty would require national governments to “address” “mis and disinformation” regarding pandemics and responses, as well as “counter” vaccine hesitancy.

        Lol, well unfortunately Russia participates in the UN and is likely signing on to this thing. Now, will they actually enforce it in their own country? Who knows. But it is a guarantee that it will be completely enforced in the US if they can make this happen.

          Hello SSL, and thank you for your reply. It is nice to speak with you again.

          Honestly though, I don’t know why Russia just doesn’t pull out of the UN. They should want nothing to do with anything on the world stage at this point, since it is all run by globalist commies. Just like BRICS, the new world order should form their own platform of nations, and refuse entry to any countries that are run by the evil globalist West.

          • SoftStarLight September 12, 2023 at 1:10 pm #

            Hey! I don’t know why Russia still wants to be part of the UN either. I also don’t know about any world order per se. I think it is probably a bad idea unless they can be sure such organizations are not going to be hijacked by globalists. BRICS could absolutely form a separate block but all of those countries probably won’t leave the UN. One of the primary purposes of the UN is to extract wealth from the US and Europe and redistribute it elsewhere. Probably too much money in it to leave for the recipient nations.

    Disaffected “They take territory already held for granted in their constant lust for more. If they could only be content with what they already had they might be able to pull it off. It’s the greed for fresh conquests that always does them in. Story book stuff.”

    Within this observation lies the ultimate truth: the elite operate on a continuum. Action (war, politics, etc) isn’t activity, rather it’s the very essence of life.

    Normal people tend to think in discrete terms – study hard, get ahead, retire; or, obey the rules, go to war, return to peace. This is why entertainers, lottery winners and those who become financially successful (ie change class) become bored and inevitably destroy themselves from over indulgence.

    As a runner, ask yourself would you quit if you won the lottery? Or Jim, would he stop writing if someone handed him $50m? Presumably, the answer to each would be of course not, what does your passion have to do with money?

    Well, try to channel the thinking process of leadership. War isn’t something to be avoided, instead it’s an object of desire for its own end. Their lust for conquest is no different than your interest in watching the Boston marathon.

    BTW, using this standard can prove to be a useful metric to measure a person’s true state. Why is Hunter so self destructive – he acts like any other regular person elevated far beyond their station.

    Whereas the elite, with families and networks tracing back centuries, quietly go about playing their great games, toying with normies with promises of agency, heaven, or whatever popular fanatasy appeals to people they literally think of as cattle.

    If you frame the world in this context, you can easily see how some bored Vikings, after carving out a part of northern France, then set their sights on another target. From that grew a global empire driven not necessarily by financial desire, but rather simple pure power and control.

    And we’re still living that reality, though it has been obscured by popular delusions about “human rights” and other nostrums guaranteed to elevate ones blood pressure if treated as something real that is “now” being compromised.

      Exactly. But there’s a huge difference between cynicism and acceptance.

      The cynic wants to believe it’s not really true, it’s just a spate of negatitivity, or maybe life can really be changed and therefore seeks to shock others into confronting reality in some deep, forlorn hope that the situation can be altered.

      I see you in that space.

      The realist, on the other hand, sees the great game for what it is, completely rejecting all prior attempts at brain washing, whether it be religious or secular. (Watch some testimony of those who left their respective churchs.)

      When you operate in that sphere, you not only fully understand & accept what you wrote above, but adopt a strategic POV thinking in terms of what’s next. You’re not concerned about the superficial realities of war, lock downs, mandates, etc – rather, you check off your internal list to confirm your predictive powers.

      In this way, even as an outsider, you can participate in the great game, if only in a virtual sense.

        I wouldn’t say that I don’t believe it’s true.
        I know and have known that it is true.

        I have said for a long time that the advent of the modern Information Age has made it nearly impossible for the masters-of-the-universe to maintain the charade under wraps. The egalitarianism, the power of the people, the democracy, the boundless opportunity afforded to everyone.

        The only way to maintain the censure and curation of disclosed information that they had previously enjoyed would be though harsher, bolder, and more obvious tactics that, perhaps ironically, would only further expose the facade.

        I suppose my point is that we have now reached the point where they (the ruling elite) believe we are hopelessly stupid and ignorant or, and probably most likely, believe that it doesn’t matter what we think or believe because we (the rules over majority) are totally and utterly devoid of agency.

        You are free to believe that you can participate in their game by virtue of understanding its existence.

            Saviour Machine
            President Joe once had a dream
            The world held his hand, gave their pledge
            So he told them his scheme for a Saviour Machine

            They called it the Prayer, its answer was law
            Its logic stopped war, gave them food
            How they adored till it cried in its boredom

            “Please don’t believe in me, please disagree with me
            Life is too easy, a plague seems quite feasible now
            Or maybe a war, or I may kill you all

            Don’t let me stay, don’t let me stay
            My logic says burn so send me away

            Your minds are too green, I despise all I’ve seen
            You can’t stake your lives on a Saviour Machine

            I need you flying, and I’ll show that dying
            Is living beyond reason, sacred dimension of time

            I perceive every sign, I can steal every mind
            Don’t let me stay, don’t let me stay
            My logic says burn so send me away

            Your minds are too green, I despise all I’ve seen
            You can’t stake your lives on a Saviour Machine”

    Does anyone else need another good reason why we are splitting into two nations? The Democrat party changed their political primary opening state from Iowa (a state with a largely White majority) to South Carolina (a state with a largely Black majority). Gee, I wonder what they are trying to ever so subtlety tell us here? It is clear this is meant to further divide the nation.

    A nation of haves and have-nots. A nation of good and evil. A nation of majority ruled by the minority. A nation of ill-witted dimwits with a few that actually see the light.

          Like most women, Merriam changes her mind a lot. She changed her mind on the meaning of “vaccine” too if memory serves.

          senate.gov

          The United States Constitution provides that the House of Representatives “shall have the sole Power of Impeachment” (Article I, section 2) and “the Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments … [but] no person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two-thirds of the Members present” (Article I, section 3). The president, vice president, and all civil officers of the United States are subject to impeachment.

          The practice of impeachment originated in England and was later used by many of the American colonial and state governments. As adopted by the framers of the Constitution, this congressional power is a fundamental component of the system of “checks and balances.” Through the impeachment process, Congress charges and then tries an official of the federal government for “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” The definition of “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” was not specified in the Constitution and has long been the subject of debate.

          In impeachment proceedings, the House of Representatives charges an official of the federal government by approving, by simple majority vote, articles of impeachment. After the House of Representatives sends its articles of impeachment to the Senate, the Senate sits as a High Court of Impeachment to consider evidence, hear witnesses, and vote to acquit or convict the impeached official. A committee of representatives, called “managers,” act as prosecutors before the Senate. In the case of presidential impeachment trials, the chief justice of the United States presides. The Constitution requires a two-thirds vote of the Senate to convict, and the penalty for an impeached official upon conviction is removal from office. In some cases, the Senate has also disqualified such officials from holding public offices in the future. There is no appeal. Since 1789 about half of Senate impeachment trials have resulted in conviction and removal from office.

          Jarek: If you couldn’t hear “remove” in the word impeach, you have a tin ear for words.

    “Communism has never concealed the fact that it rejects all absolute concepts of morality. It scoffs at any consideration of “good” and “evil” as indisputable categories. Communism considers morality to be relative, to be a class matter. Depending on circumstances and the political situation, any act, including murder, even the killing of hundreds of thousands, could be good or could be bad. It all depends on class ideology. And who defines this ideology? The whole class cannot get together to pass judgment. A handful of people determine what is good and what is bad. But I must say that in this respect Communism has been most successful. It has infected the whole world with the belief in the relativity of good and evil. Today, many people apart from the Communists are carried away by this idea.”

      “Communism has been most successful. It has infected the whole world with the belief in the relativity of good and evil.”

      Solzhenitsyn wrote about common criminals, and how they got much lighter sentences than the ideological, moral ones who were rounded up. He hated them. For one thing, they made for much easier and better informers. Without morals, there were no pangs of conscience when a Party bureaucrat “suggested” keeping an eye and ear out for “subversive thoughts” among family members or anyone on the street. In fact, the opposite — criminals exulted in their new powers. (He estimated that 1 in 3 or 4 people in 1920s and 30s U.S.S.R. had been approached at some point to inform. It was the offer you couldn’t refuse.)

      Later, when living in the U.S., he looked on the glorification of criminals in Hollywood entertainment with bewilderment.

      We fool ourselves that stealing from the richer or more corrupt is somehow acceptable, even noble. But it’s just different degrees of immorality, and points to the fact that if the roles and circumstances were switched, we (the underlings, in general) would be just as vicious and cruel as TPTB.

      But Solzhenitsyn detailed meticulously how, out of fear, almost everyone informed on everyone else, whether their spouses, kids, good neighbours or friends. Once the oppression infiltrates every interaction, perceived or real, every industry, every family and work interaction, then fighting becomes virtually impossible, even for the good ones. He did write about the rare exceptions, though, and how effective they could be.

    Concerning the Jets vs Bills game last night:

    As you may know, quarterback Aaron Rodgers was acquired from the GB Packers by the NY Jets. With great hype and fanfare he started last night’s game. The hype was over the top. In the pre-game, tennis legend John McEnroe interviews Rodgers and they both praise one another’s legacy in their respective sports. Rodgers announces that he is not planning to merely improve on the Jets win loss record of recent years but to seriously challenge for the Super Bowl.

    The teams are lined up in the hallway ready to take the field. Rodgers at the head of the team holds a pole with a large American flag. He trots onto the field with a brilliant spotlight on him. The crowd is going wild. A large number of fans have already purchased and are wearing a green Jets T-shirt bearing the number 8 and Rodgers name. The game begins.

    On the 4th snap from center Rodgers is sacked behind his line of scrimmage. He gets up, hobbles a step or two then sits on the field with a pained grimace. He’s carted off the field with an ankle injury. Zach Wilson replaced him. The game went into OT and the Jets won by six points on a 100 yard punt runback.

    It is not yet known if Rodgers will recover or is out for the season. He has a torn ACL.

            Yes, I think you’re right, Q. He sidestepped it by claiming he sought alternative treatments, or some such, and they gave him a pass. Hey, whatever it takes!

      What’s Tim Tebow doing now? The media really hated him as did 100 I assume. Both hate Christians.

        Tebow could have remained in the NFL at some position other than quarterback. There have been a number of good college QBs who transformed themselves into tight ends & wide receivers to play in the NFL. This was offered to Tebow but he turned it down.

        In other words he wasn’t kicked out of the league because he was a Christian.

        • Jarek September 12, 2023 at 1:34 pm #

            What is he [Tebow] doing now? – Jar

            ==========

            With his reputation as a big Christian, I will guess “praying.”

            I also wonder about the once phenom Johnny Manziel aka “Johnny Football” out of Texas A&M.

          • Disaffected September 12, 2023 at 5:26 pm #

            There’s a U of Florida mini-documentary out on Netflix now that’s mostly about Tebow and Urban Myer. Didn’t watch the whole thing, so not sure what he’s up to now. Last I heard he was coaching HS football somewhere, having wrung his celebrity out for all it’s worth.

          • Disaffected September 12, 2023 at 5:39 pm #

            Manziel also has a biopic on Netflix now. Looked to me like he’s finally come down to earth again. He never actually liked playing football, he was just into it for the camaraderie with “his boys” and the adrenaline rush of the fame and notoriety. An arrested development teenager who didn’t want to grow up. Didn’t enjoy the money either, other than as a means for more of the above. Reminded me somewhat of Ryan Leaf, who’s now remarkably well-adjusted and candid about his experiences post fame, football, and prison time. So there is hope for those kinds of guys.

        • Disaffected September 12, 2023 at 2:34 pm #

          Tebow tried out as a TE for the Jags last year under soon disgraced Urban Meyer. Didn’t make it past the pre-season. Several YouTube videos out there of his horrendous attempts to block.

          No, he wasn’t a good QB, but apparently he was an even worse TE.

          • Disaffected September 12, 2023 at 2:52 pm #

            And he was a media nightmare for any team that had him, what with his cult-like following.

          Actually they worshipped him for the constant story lines.

      • elysianfield September 13, 2023 at 12:26 pm #

        Jarek,
        What does Tebow say to God when he prays? Does he pray for victory…for his enemies to be smitten? If his prayers are answered, does it mean that Jesus loves him more, and his enemies less? Why is Jesus screwing the other team? I’ve heard that God doesn’t make no junk, so why would Tebow implore the deity for his own personal victory over his worthy enemies?

        Or maybe he is praying for world peace…? Or, or is Tebow actually evil, praying that his enemies die…or that they momma die? Or both?

        If Tebow drops a pass, is he then forsaken? If his enemies win on the field, are they considered more devout? Even chosen?

        If I root for Tebow, what are my chances? Maybe keep my tongue from being ripped out by demons?

    • BackRowHeckler September 12, 2023 at 1:06 pm #

      Rogers played all of 5 minutes. I read it was a torn Achilles tendon, not an ACL. At any rate, season over, career over.

            The use (or as I like to say, “yoose”) of “prolly” for “probably” and “prahlem” for “problem” I noticed being spoken continually by Fred Mishkin, a former Federal Reserve honcho and it drove me right up the wall.

            I wasn’t being sarcastic about your sarcasm, as posted above. I actually laughed.

            Your comment about local buying is correct, IMO. I try to do that. See, at least you are stating a solution. I’d like to see more of this.

            Here’s a proposal: A national strike. Our present economy is fragile, no matter what Biden says. A strike only needs about 5% participation, more or less. Can you imagine a 5% decrease in the GDP? Or for that matter lack of supply? A targeted strike, say by truckers (I know that was tried in Canada)?

            Remember how people say we are only 9 meals away from revolt? Well…

            Surely there’s more than 5% disgruntled US citizens. The point is, you wouldn’t need a big mass movement to bring about change.

          • Disaffected September 12, 2023 at 5:20 pm #

            LOL! Do ya think? “Poofter” is another one of those remarkably descriptive Brit slang terms we should all be thankful for. Love it!

          • Mike Sherman September 12, 2023 at 8:46 pm #

            “Poofter” (also, “pooftah”) is actually decidedly Australian in origin.

            ===========

            I request that Green Alba chime in here and give us your opinion whether “poofter” is of Brit (perhaps Scot) origin or Australian origin.

            In either case it is really great slang word. The other day I was watching a movie on Netflix concerning the “Enigma Machine.” The actor Cumberbatch played Alan Turing and at some point in the story he was referred to as a “poofter.” I immediately recalled GA introducing me to that term in one of her comments.

          • GreenAlba September 13, 2023 at 12:14 pm #

            Haven’t looked it up, but as far as I know it’s English (which doesn’t mean it’s not also Australian – cockney rhyming slang seems to have migrated there too). Not a word I really used and it was more of a 70s word, before ‘gay’ became a thing and well prior to political correctness.

            I recall an English guy that briefly worked with me in France, in the 70s, referring jokingly to Earl Grey tea as ‘poofter tea’ when offering it around our little British contingent at work.

    The FDA Approves New Pfizer And Moderna Boosters

    The Food and Drug Administration has approved new booster shots by both Pfizer and Moderna. These shots are supposedly designed to target the XBB.1.5 subvariant (which is no longer dominant) and are expected to be made available later this week.

        Per Biden:

        “Hey folks, don’t be a dog faced pony soldier. You gotta get out there and get the shot, okay? I mean, you just gotta do this man! If you don’t get the shot then you are part of the problem. We are dealing with a pandemic of the unvaccinated here. These vaccines work. The boosters work. I wouldn’t be standing here telling you this if they didn’t. I was born in Scranton and my daddy worked in a coal mine, so I know a thing or three about this. Thank you, and God save the Queen.”

    I’m tired of the same old comments (except for OG). I would like to see actionable and realistic proposals for solutions to the issues facing us. I know the issues because I read about them every day here. And yes, there are real solutions, I believe. What good does it do CFNers to keep on hearing how the WEF is affecting our future – we already know that, or how bad, ineffectual our government is.

    Re OG: I think I understand him. Much is to be admired. Yes, he seems to be obsessive. But it’s good he is. He has a very strong sense of justice and probably can’t abide people getting away with murder.

    I can’t say I agree with everything he believes, but I certainly agree with his right to keep repeating what he claims has happened. Many posters don’t like that and call him crazy, but he’s not crazy at all. He’s frustrated that CFNers are saying that about him, and he strikes back, which is something I would do too, except he’s better at it than I am.

    OG, please forgive me if I’m out of line. JHK greatly dislikes it when commenters give their opinions on what he’s thinking.
