    Now that the charm has worn off the transsexual craze — the idea that a person’s emotional distress can be cured by identifying as the opposite sex — we await the next ploy out of the Woke Transhumanist game-plan to destabilize the human project on earth. People-of-color, brown, indigenous, Pacific Islander, gay, lesbian, plus-size, differently-abled, all women (of course), have taken their turn in the batting order of intersectional oppressed minority groups, and each has walked off with a participation trophy. Who’s left now?

    The dead! Their needs have not received sufficient attention. Inclusion has not come to them… yet. They are systematically kept out of all current activities and ceremonies. They are segregated in ghettos of grass and granite. The legal system stigmatizes them. Numerically, taking in the whole of human history, they are by far the largest demographic. Yet, they are routinely ignored, overlooked, disrespected. If anyone deserves to be Woked-up from the sleep of oppression, it’s them.

    Don’t despair, a great grooming is underway. The next new thing will be for most of us to transition into the dead. Do you think it’s an accident that Hollywood has churned out zombie movies by the morgue-full in recent years? Obviously, more and more Americans have come to identify as the walking dead. (And, judging by the behavior in our land, a lot of people’s brains have been eaten.) Even our businesses and banks have a walking dead kind of look to them.

     Our project in Ukraine has been a tremendous grooming aid in preparing people to become dead. But that experiment is nearly complete now. Hence, we must seek a much bigger global project for transitioning humanity into the satisfactions of being dead. A war with China would be the ideal grooming opportunity. They outnumber us about four to one. They’ve developed hypersonic missiles that can deliver nuclear payloads anywhere in our country, with the potential of transitioning millions of Americans at a pop. And when they’re done with that, they can send an army over here to work the luckless survivors to death out in the soybean fields and the corn rows.

     Perhaps in anticipation of strange turning, America elected (so they say) a president in mid-transition to being dead. “Joe Biden” is celebrated for staying mostly out-of-sight; underground, for speaking a dead language that resembles 20th century American vernacular English; for lurching one way and another, zombie-like, on his way off-stage in fleeting public appearances; and for taking large sums of money from Chinese officials who support America’s transitioning program. Best of all, the president personally empathizes and identifies with the dead, encourages more Americans to become dead, offers cash incentives to hospitals that expedite death, and makes pharmaceuticals available — both legal and illegal — for inducing efficient transitions to the bliss of non-being.

     In fact, there seems to be a rush now to transition, with the pace being set by professional athletes in their twenties and thirties who keel over in mid-play on the football pitches, by movie actors who undergo conversion as the cameras roll, TV news-readers who drop away from the mic with eyes rolling down like window shades in full view of multitudes, and other celebrities who surprise their loved ones by simply waking up dead in the morning. These are the edgy avatars of the next big thing. So hallowed are their transitions from living to dead, that the process is spoken of only in whispers, as in a church or a sepulcher. Doctors who come upon the scene are mesmerized to the point of silence, too much in awe to speak of what brought on the fateful transition — certainly nothing they did.

     As the people go, so goes the nation. The USA is transitioning from a dynamic system of economic liberty, endeavor, and law into an entropic dystopia of chaos, corruption, and inertia. As suits a country of the walking dead, nothing works: telephone calls go dead, the bank won’t give you any money, your duties on-the-job have been eliminated, your food store has closed down, there are no parts available for your broken things, your flights are cancelled, your Facebook archive has been erased, your opinion is not wanted, your vote is meaningless, your children no longer need your permission to do anything, and, final insult, a martini now costs fifteen dollars.

     Death is everywhere in America now, hovering over everything we do. Don’t fight it — celebrate it! Foster it wherever you go, among all you consort with! Welcome it as you slough off all the annoyances of being here and rise to your blessed platform in the perfect gnostic Elysium promised by the theurgists of Wokery. Become the dead you long to be!

    I read something really good about the trannie stuff:

    “If sex and gender are different, then why do you have to change your sex to affirm your gender???”

    I thought that an excellent question.

        My fav was a clip Matt Walsh showed of a group of black drag queens in full regalia and manspreading around a table cluck-clucking about cultural appropriation, clearly missing the irony completely. One was wearing a dress adorned by baby skulls (as women are so inclined to do, don’t you know). I am sure that the old stereotype of black people as savages wearing necklaces of shrunken heads was completely lost on him. In any case, it was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen, but the participants were dead serious.

        • Penelope Dreadful May 8, 2023 at 10:20 am #

          I saw that video, too. Sent me right back to those old cartoons with thick-lipped natives cooking people in pots.

          Well said, ladies. We left cannibalism behind ages ago, while they were still practicing it when we met them. The truth will out, even if indirectly in style choices and jokes.

        • BackRowHeckler May 8, 2023 at 12:24 pm #

          Today we learned that a comprehensive course on Asian & Pacific Islander history has been mandated in Ct public schools, and a requirement for graduation. Apparently, primarily Chinese students want to “read about people who look like them”, and the lack of such a course of study in previous decades and centuries was attributed to racism, White Supremacy & hate.

          Hapless students in our public schools are already subject to mandatory courses on racism, the Holocaust, Indian Wars, Slavery — none on actual Ct history, which include many industrial innovations throughout the decades, including investment casting, the manufacturing of identical parts (American System) helicopters, submarines, Colt Revolvers, Winchester rifles, canned milk, the P&W wasp aircraft engine, the J47 jet engine, just to name a few. Something tells me in this mandatory course of Asian history Cannibals in Borneo, the Rape of Nanking, Mao liquidating 60 million people, brutal NKorean prison camps, Japanese medical experiments on POWs, Genghis Kahn rampaging across Asia and breaking into Europe … will not be mentioned.

          Mary Queen,

          I haven’t seen it, but thanks for sharing.

          Your post reminded me of something I’ve been grumbling about for a while. Adele (a talented singer to be sure) was playing at a concert venue and was waxing political to her audience. I wasn’t there, I’m not allowed, you see. But also, I would never pay money for any entertainment that doesn’t support my values. I’m weird that way. Anyway, Adele was ranting about Roe v Wade. It’s her body, so it’s her choice! Adele had required vaxx documentation to attend her concert. She was lecturing a group of people whom she had required to take the vaxxine to attend.

          Irony much?

          • workingclasshero May 8, 2023 at 2:30 pm #

            Yeah, that is ironic and stupid on her part, which still doesn’t mean she’s wrong about agitating about draconian restrictions on abortion.
            The left pushes allot of stupid and infuriating nonsense, but the problem is that their pet issues are now normalized as acceptable and debatable political discourse whereas total abortion bans are felt to be the elimination of a “right” that may be utilized by about 1\2 of the population. It’s a horrible form of birth control but is considered a right just as much as a self-defense firearm. Nothing fair about it.

          • MaryQueen May 9, 2023 at 8:45 am #

            They can’t see irony because they are part of a cult which bases its beliefs on nonsense. So it doesn’t need to make sense to them, they just adhere to whatever is told them is good & they do it. Thus the brain-dead virtue-signaling, etc.

            Adele had her marching orders just like everyone else in the music industry (btw, the very worst industry in the western world to be part of). They all went along with the establishment dictates. This is why I don’t get why anyone still thinks any artists are ‘counter-culture.’ The people who are counter culture nowadays are white conservative Christians and disgruntled former lefties.

          • Jarek May 9, 2023 at 11:45 am #

            Disgruntled former Leftists who helped put these people in power by believing in nonsense like “racism”.

    • Beryl of Oyl May 8, 2023 at 10:08 am #

      That’s good.

      I like this one too:

      “Dear trans people: Why should others be forced to accept you for “who you are” if you cannot accept yourself for who you are?”

        Choice, that.

      • mrs_saj May 8, 2023 at 1:45 pm #

        Awesome!

      • MaryQueen May 9, 2023 at 8:50 am #

        In a way, all irony aside, that is actually the goal of communism: Instead of putting the onus on the individual to improve their lot, through hard work, education, and perhaps the support of a healthy government (I know, ha ha, when has there ever been one?), they aim to change the perception of the entirety of society to fit their shortcomings.

        Welcome to Wokeism = Queer Gnosticism = communistic fascism.

        This is what’s being implemented here in the western world.

            ===========

            Yes, an ability to correct errors after submitting a comment would be a great feature. After you changed “settled” to read “set” you could also go back and remove the hyphens from “would-have-set.”

          • Anthea May 8, 2023 at 6:16 pm #

            it would be appropriate (though not strictly necessary, as such is a matter of style) to have written “land-speed.” It is often helpful to hyphenate two-word modifiers, for the sake of clarity. I.e., “land-speed” is an adjective modifying “records.”

            The bizarre use of hyphens is one of Karl Denninger’s little idiosycrasies.

            Comma after “set,” Q man(let). And “have changed” would be the proper tense here, given the rest of the sentence.

    • Jarek May 8, 2023 at 11:03 am #

      Excellent question. By their love of stereotypes, they affirm the basic reality. They are simply unfortunates, far from their own desires. Not manly, they seek to become women. Not womanly, to become men. They will fail and in the process destroy what they could have been, even if only in an inferior way.

      I think it was Watt in the Reagan administration who was the Interior secretary. He had dead animals he killed all over his office.

      When “progressives” started clamoring about not enough diversity in government positions Watt claimed, “I have a Black, a woman, two Jews and a cripple!”

      LIFE magazine got those folks together for a nice portrait. I clipped it and framed it cause it was all so damn funny.

      Now, this shit we are all witnessing makes me puke.

  2. Penelope Dreadful May 8, 2023 at 9:39 am #

    Oh, and also a great book about The Dead, is “The Coming Forth by Day of Osiris Jones” by Conrad Aiken. It is a poem, but very apropos! You can still find used copies of it.

  3. NickelthroweR May 8, 2023 at 9:41 am #

    C’mon guys, be positive! The dead are about to be reborn in holographic form. Everything from Phantom of the Opera to Elvis is about to go holographic. A new woke version of the dead will be a big part of the entertainment scene going forward.

    I, for one, can’t wait to see holographic Frank Sinatra in drag as he extolls the virtues of genital mutilation.

    The dead shall rise!!! (just not the way you thought)

    The Left has always been a death cult.. They are, by and large, life’s losers. People who were defeated in grade school and have been bitter ever since. They’re the modern day equivalent of lepers and if society was smart we’d give them their own island.

    • Penelope Dreadful May 8, 2023 at 9:45 am #

      I kinda disagree with you. I think the Left were the winners, which is why they run so many organizations and institutions. Which, Eric Hoffer, noted in The True Believer.

      Now, Social Justice Warrior types, they are losers.

      • ZorroSchmorro May 8, 2023 at 11:08 am #

        @ Penelope – The only reason that the left is winning is the trillions in fiat constantly dumped into their causes by string-pullers.

        In a fair fight, the left will always lose.

      • Jarek May 8, 2023 at 11:13 am #

        The winners use the losers to crush those in the middle – especially the upper middle class would produces the kind of people who could displace them. This process is called democracy. Not for nothing did the Founders loathe it.

      • pyrrhus May 8, 2023 at 11:18 am #

        The left are whiners, and our culture has been catering to whiners ever since WW2, so they win…They lose on the playground because nobody cares about their whining…

    • RCAnderson May 8, 2023 at 10:35 am #

      Yeah, but they’re intent on taking over the big island called North America and shipping the rest of us off somewhere else.

    • nicaphonic May 8, 2023 at 10:46 am #

      That’s ridiculous. The drug war served to sway generations of youth to the political left not because they were losers but because they saw the insanity of locking people up for victimless crimes. (It was only later that many of us realized the whole situation was a good cop/bad cop set up).

    • bobfitz03 May 8, 2023 at 12:02 pm #

      Liz, I agree resentment is a key component.

      Resentment leads to entitlement. “I am the victim and I am owed my due.” Of course, no reparation is worthwhile without a healthy slice of punishment on the side. “You made me what I am and you must be punished.”

      Resentment -> Entitlement -> Punishment

      Of course, this pattern heals nothing, resolves nothing, and helps no one. But, it sure beats taking a long look in the mirror and growing up.

  7. Beryl of Oyl May 8, 2023 at 9:45 am #

    Speaking of the dead, I was just trying to get back into my old reading habit again, when tragedy struck with the death of my brother.

    One book I was attempting is a book about salt called The Salt Fix, and it’s about how what the medical profession has been telling everyone for some time now is probably all wrong.

    I want to share a brief passage-

    “This is a perfect example of why we should not blindly follow the advice from “well-meaning” dietary guidelines and health agencies.
    Real-world situations cannot be encapsulated into “guidelines”.

    This book was published in 2017.

    How long have we been doing this, and how is it we haven’t learned a thing thus far?

    What would make anyone tell a bald-faced lie that a shot would keep you and your loved ones safe from getting or spreading a dangerous disease, let alone try to compel anyone to do so?

    • Ron Anselmo May 8, 2023 at 9:56 am #

      Beryl – the guidelines are meant to keep us sick. Doctors want to keep you alive just long enough to make it to your next appointment. Food is medicine – not pharma.

      • Beryl of Oyl May 8, 2023 at 10:11 am #

        I was stunned, just from what little I’ve read in the salt book, how the ‘salt is bad for you’ idea took hold so firmly, with so little data, let along scientific testing, to back it up.

        • Ron Anselmo May 8, 2023 at 10:24 am #

          First thing they give you in the hospital – a saline drip. Seems odd, no?

          • Beryl of Oyl May 8, 2023 at 10:38 am #

            Your blood has .9% sodium in it. If you give a saline drip that has less or more than that, you can really mess someone up.

            The idea is to give fluids, not sodium.

          People limiting table salt often suffer iodine deficiency – salt is iodized to combat that in areas with iodine-poor soils.

        • SW May 8, 2023 at 9:35 pm #

          A cardiologist I worked with years ago told me not to worry about salt as it effects only a very small minority of heart patients. It’s an electrolyte our body needs and the body has mechanisms to regulate it. And remember how OB docs would tell us to restrict salt? Restricting has been shown to be a cause of preeclampsia.

          And now they’ve come out with those new injectable weight loss drugs — God only knows how those things work.

        Fads rule human consciousness. That salt hold no risks is another exaggeration. It does for some. And our food is full of salt, we really don’t need more, except maybe in hot weather after exertion.

        That we aren’t getting the iodine we need may be a valid point.

        • Beryl of Oyl May 8, 2023 at 11:57 am #

          That’s covered in the book, Jarek. Actual salt sensitivity is rare, and among those with high blood pressure, restricting salt doesn’t always make the difference it’s though to make.

      You’re probably not old enough to remember that in the late ’50s they told us we needed to eat more polyunsaturated oils (like margarine) instead of deadly butter and lard. Today, the alt health community is telling us that was a lie as well and the truth is just the opposite (not to mention how good McD’s fries were when they cooked them in beef fat!). It makes me wonder whether I should take up smoking to extend my life.

        I hear that cow milk is bad for us and then I hear that cow milk is good for us. I hear that chicken eggs will kill us and then I hear that chicken eggs are a wonderful food. Carbohydrates are evil because they make us fat. Then I am told we need carbohydrates to stay properly hydrated. Wheat, a staple of human food for millennia is now bad for us because it has gluten. Meat is bad for us because it makes us fat even though humans have been living on meat for millennia. Potatoes have too many carbs. Broccoli has too many pesticides applied to it. Strawberries aren’t ripe when they pick them. Bananas aren’t organic enough. Chicken meat isn’t grass fed or free range. Sugar has been replaced by high fructose corn syrup. Calorie counting doesn’t help weight loss. Bacon causes cancer. Vitamin supplements don’t help us. We should take vitamin supplements because processed foods lack nutrients. Too much dairy makes one lactose intolerant. Drink SOY MILK.

        I’m sick of it all. I wish the idiots would just shut the hell up already.

          I think with the gluten thing, I talked to a woman who is a dietician and also has Celiac’s Disease, she gets frustrated with “gluten sensitivity”. People with her disease, which used to be called sprue, can’t digest gluten. They lack an enzyme or something.

          If you have digestive problems of any sort, and it seems like millions of us today do, you very like have trouble digesting gluten simply because it is hard to digest.

          Also, people will cut out all foods containing gluten (or at least known to, they don’t always list it on the label) and they will often feel better, but that’s because foods high in gluten tend to contain a lot of other ingredients that don’t do you any good.

        • RCAnderson May 8, 2023 at 1:43 pm #

          You nailed it, Cankerpuss!
          And as for salt, you’ve heard the saying, “he’s worth his salt.” That’s because they used to pay people w/ salt because it’s a must for good health (real salt that has dozens of trace minerals, not just lab-made NaCl. And as for sugar, raw sugar is considered a divinity in India (there’s a temple devoted to it and it (sugar) is considered a cure-all. (Can’t have that, though, so let’s take out all the good stuff and make it into a crystalline substance that acts like a drug in your system). They did the same thing w/ coca leaves, all traditional herbal lore (until pharma gets its hands on it)

        • Ozymandius May 8, 2023 at 6:39 pm #

          There seems to be a valid case against the use of high fructose corn syrup as a sweetener, because fructose is apparently converted to fat once ingested, whereas sucrose is not.

          My daughter went to a dietician to help her with chronic migraines. The dietician put her on a diet with no dairy, and no gluten. She stopped getting migraines. Later, she began eating dairy again with no problems. So this narrows the cause of the migraines down to gluten.

          I asked why gluten intolerance used to be unknown, but is now common.

          My daughter said that the way her dietician explained it is that there has been a huge change in people’s gut biome. We can no longer digest many of the things we used to be able to digest.

            Supposedly it’s the glycosphate. They tell us that it doesn’t affect humans because of the mechanism it uses.

            But it does affect bacteria. Oops! We rely on our gut bacteria to help us digest food.

            Some posit that the increase of glycosphate use after the FDA approved Roundup Ready corn and soybeans in 1996 and 1997 might be related to the increase in autism rates.

            The usage has gone up by tons and tons in the last 20+ years.

        The Most Destructive Ingredient in Your Diet -Seed oils is the top story at Mercola.com today “While most nutritional experts blame the epidemic of chronic disease on the increase in sugar consumption, the role of sugar is relatively minor when compared to the impact of seed oils”

        • Beryl of Oyl May 8, 2023 at 11:18 am #

          From what little I have read from the salt book I have started, it’s become more clear to me that we have been hit with a dietary triple whammy (at least triple) of dietary advice that is the exact opposite of what we should do.

          Sometimes by carelessness and incompetence, but also by design.

          One thing I learned already, it takes about three decades for the results of the bad practices to start showing up in a population.

          One thing that disturbs me is that people still can’t let go of the “fast food” concept.

          Does anyone believe when you walk into the average chain restaurant they aren’t using the same oils to cook with, and their bread from the big suppliers doesn’t have the same ingredients that you find in the buns they use at mcDonald’s.

          What does how fast it’s served have to do with it?

          The reason they singled out mcDonald’s is because they serve BEEF.

        RCAnderson,

        I don’t believe any of the nutrient studies they put out. Coffee is good…(wait three months) coffee is bad….(wait three months)…..

        I just try to use common sense. I add salt according to recipe instructions. I eat out more than the average bear, but it’s not fast food. I salt my eggs and my sliced tomatoes. Otherwise I never pick up the salt shaker, especially not in restaurants.

        • Anthea May 8, 2023 at 7:06 pm #

          I use a lot of salt, but it’s Himalayan pink salt. I also go through a lot of soy sauce, which I am often tempted to drink out of the bottle.

    • Paula D May 8, 2023 at 12:31 pm #

      I don’t use salt when cooking, so when we eat out, we think the food tastes great.
      We realize that it was because of the salt when we get thirsty after the meal and have to drink a bunch of water.

      Humans are wired to like salt because salt was scarce in most places until they set up slavery in the salt mines.

      We evolved to preserve salt and waste potassium through our kidneys, because humans evolved with lots of potassium in our diets and not much sodium.

    And just in time, a recently released report documenting the positive benefits of population decline by 2050.

    There is no argument. Overpopulation is the issue.
    Has been the issue. The Gates foundation has known it for decades.

    Undoubtedly, the world will be a better place for all its inhabitants with less people. Undoubtedly, the people will have a higher standard of living with less population.

    However, we were really not expecting their use of accelerants to nudge the numbers.

    Even when admitting there is not much super within the cohort of superfluous

    • Cankerpuss May 8, 2023 at 10:37 am #

      Population is going to decline anyway. Women aren’t having children anymore. Asian nations will decline in to obscurity. Western nations are dying and without immigration their populations would be decreasing. Russia loses 250,000 a year in population. There are only a few places where women still have children. Islamic nations and African nations. These nations will inherit the Earth.

          Every race is being mongrelized into simply a “brown” race. I see it all around me every day and I live in the Rocky Mountains. Black people in America today aren’t nearly as black as their African counterparts. Some black people are as fair skinned as the white people. Other than their hair and noses one wouldn’t guess they were of African heritage.

        • farmgal May 8, 2023 at 2:33 pm #

          @Jarek – did you ever read the novel “Earth Abides”? It was an early post apocalyptic novel in which the main character, Isherwood Williams, laments the stupidity of his rag tag band of survivors. After a couple generations it seems as if they are content to simply scavenge and show no interest in recreating products and conveniences of the recent past.

          It brings to mind my personal forecast that society will continue to be so dumbed down in the near future that everyone will be drawing emojis in the dirt and passing it off as hieroglyphics..

          • Jarek May 8, 2023 at 7:34 pm #

            Yes, a great novel. We climbed out of the mud but the mud is pulling us back to its love embrace.

            @ farmgal:

            I think a person could make a case that higher technologies can’t emerge without fairly large populations. I’m not sure where I’m going with this, but it may be that, as they say, “necessity is the mother of invention.” Maybe people can’t or won’t develop things like urban infrastructure until and unless urban population densities really require it–and can muster enough hands to do the work. Maybe the same is true of things like metalurgy and mechanical engineering. It takes a lot of hands to develop these technologies, and some of those hands have to be equipped with a lot of brains. And brains, as we have all recently learned, are hard to come by. It takes a lot of humans to produce a few with any degree of intelligence.

            I suspect that smaller populations–especially MUCH smaller populations–can’t advance technologically, or can’t advance very far.

    • MrMangoOnMyShoulder May 9, 2023 at 2:07 pm #

    Bravo, Jim! Incredibly apt and spot on. Zombies abound, on their way out from lethal injections. And of course Canada leads us in putting the useless eaters to sleep with readily available assisted suicide.

    There was a Kurt Vonnegut short story I read years ago about suicide salons coming into vogue, only it was here in the US. At the time, of course, probably in the 1990s when I read it, it seemed far-fetched. And now it’s practically here.

    And yes, who better to oversee the US slow march toward collective death than Slow Joe, who’s most of the way there himself?

      The Culture of Death brought us abortion, then euthanasia, then the sexual mutilation of children, and now the promotion of suicide. I am truly terrified of the mass suicide that may happen when the economy collapses. People jumped out of tall buildings in 1929….

      If you don’t believe in God, you are very vulnerable to Satan’s lies. And Satan delights in suicide. I think he is already licking his chops, salivating at his upcoming harvest of souls. We all need to pray very, very, very hard that this does not happen!! Pray hard for those who will be especially vulnerable to despair!

          Is praying very, very, very hard something like typing in ALL CAPS?

          It’s unclear.

      • Anthea May 8, 2023 at 8:27 pm #

        @ Heartlander (and Q. Shtik):

        I think prayer is exactly what it will take.

        I think most of us know that there is such a thing as good, and that there is such a thing as evil. (Being human, we are often deceived about this.) But anyone who is able to conceptualize “good,” however imperfectly, is really conceptualizing God.

        Not to ramble here, but we humans don’t know what “good” is. Some people get a glimpse of it, but it is far beyond the capacity of the human mind and heart to even conceptualize. There are realms where people, things, and other beings are “good.” There are realms of pure love, which fulfill every desire of the human heart. (“Eye hath not seen nor ear heard, nor hath it entered into the mind of man, what God hath prepared for those who love Him.)

        The reason I mention this is because I once saw such a place. (Granted, it was on acid.) It was a long time ago, and, frankly, I can hardly remember it. What the mind can’t conceive of, the mind will have a hard time retaining.

        By analogy, we also can’t conceptualize real evil. We can’t really understand what God or Satan are, or what heaven and hell are.

        Seeking after “good” (which is the same thing as seeking after God) is what produces civilization and civil society. The best–and indeed the tried-and-true–means for gaining some kind of concept of what “good” is and how to achieve it is prayer–prayer being (for one thing) the simple acknowledgement that there is such a thing, along with a will to strive for it.

        Prayer is a good way to preserve our own families and communities. And it wouldn’t hurt to pray for everyone else, as prescribed at Fatima: “Oh my Jesus, save us from the fires of hell and lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of thy mercy.” (This petition will cover a lot of people, both living and dead, that one really doesn’t like.) I’m not sure how much good it will do, since our society seems a bit further gone than Ninevah, but it’s worth a shot–and I suppose it’s our duty. After all, Russia was converted, and it was also pretty far gone.

    SF 1311, currently steamrolling through the MN legislature (passed in the Senate, now moving to the House for subsequent reads/amendments and, well, guaranteed passing in a few weeks). The bill does all sorts of wonderful things – extra funding for special needs students, etc. And then, just for fun, it mandates full-semester CRT classes (“racial studies”, to be exact, but the bill description uses the words critical theory) for seniors next year, K-12 a few years later. It also includes plans to eventually incorporate critical theory into all of the major disciplines (English, math, history/civics, etc.).

    Critical theory, of course, now encompasses race/gender/sexuality.

          I remember the mayor of one Vermont city, this one I think, saying he wanted to take in refugees as a means of economic development.

          “BURLINGTON — Mayor Miro Weinberger notified the federal government that the state’s largest city would continue to welcome refugee resettlement after President Donald Trump issued an order in September allowing cities and states to refuse refugees.

          “Refugees are a vital and valued part of our community, and we have been proud to welcome many people fleeing situations of persecution and great upheaval to our small city,” Weinberger wrote in a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

          Weinberger announced the city’s position Wednesday, the same day a federal judge issued an order temporarily blocking the Trump order in a lawsuit challenging the policy. The mayor said Burlington would proceed with filing the notification despite the stay.

          Trump’s executive order would change federal policy so refugees could only be resettled in communities where both the state and local governments have agreed to receive them.”

          https://vtdigger.org/2020/01/17/burlington-mayor-consents-to-more-refugee-resettlement-in-city/

          That’s another thing people accept without question- that refugees must be resettled as far away as possible from their homes.

          They never think why they can’t just be moved out of the areas that there is fighting in, in their own countries.

          Or why an organization with a budget like the UN’s can’t manage to get things that people need to them, like food and shelter, but they can fly them around the world.

          • Paula D May 8, 2023 at 12:46 pm #

            A lot of actual refugees are housed near their own homes.

            Neighboring countries set up refugee camps, and they live in those camps.
            My sister-in-law spent her first 5 years of life in a refugee camp in Germany.

            If the border crossers were actually refugees, the proper thing to do with them is set up refugee camps, where they can be housed and fed, but not assimilated into the host country (in this case the USA).

            Why do Americans accept that anyone who crosses the border should be settled into their town, just by claiming refugee status?

      Hey Malthus as an LA County resident, are you ready to pony up for reparations? I’ve read white Californians have to come across with $500,000 apiece to fill the bill. That’s a lot of schwag, even for you LA types.

      The female social worker who was axed to death by the female, muslim of sub-saharan origins was hacked to death in the room next to one of her colleagues who witnessed the axe attack. After the axe murderer killed the woman, she looked at the male colleage and said, “I like you. I don’t like her.” Then, the muslim of sub-saharan origins went to the sink, grabbed a knife and started stabbing the corpse to death.

    Excellent article, JHK. Spot on. We are a culture that worships death. Everything is about death now. Instead of protecting and saving our babies, we murder them and in some cases potential mothers, young WOMEN, now put the remains of their aborted child upon an altar and worship those remains (what in the world happened to our women?). The majority of movies made by Hollywood now are horror films that involve blood, gore, violence and death. Rarely seen are movies made that promote love, family, morality, honesty and faith. I haven’t seen a new movie for nearly a decade. The news is full of nothing but death, destruction and decay. Churches are failing to teach that Christ overcame death. Murderers are exalted in the news while the victims remain unnamed and forgotten. The justice system fights to protect the life of the murderous villain while ignoring the victim.

    We don’t only worship death, we love it, exalt it, and obsess over it.

    JHK couldn’t be more correct. We are the death eaters. We worship death in all of its forms and as such death will find all of us. Many sooner than later.

    A fallen people we have become. A people who have nothing but contempt for life and the living.

    Fitting gallows humor as a requiem for a dead nation. I think we can unoffically note that the civil war is now truly underway.

    From my personal experience, critical waypoints are all present. Once social restraints are compromised, divisions that always existed become the front line battleground as we witness the daily mayhem.

    Another easy tell is the value of money, which loses value as productive capacity is compromised to the extent that nothing of real value is produced to create foreign demand.

    So, you have the perfect mix of declining living standards creating/compounding family and social stressors, which exacerbate long present rivalries and divisions that are now being resolved on personal, individual bases.

    Been there, saw it, it’s now happending here. Satire is fun, but it’s also a relic of the past, where it was a uselful tool for political discourse. Problem is, the gloves are now off, so it no longer serves any useful purpose.

          A man who transitions to a woman but keeps his penis and has sex with women has a specific disorder called autogynephilia. Here’s the definition from the NIH:

          “Autogynephilia exemplifies an unusual paraphilic category called ‘erotic target identity inversions’, in which men desire to impersonate or turn their bodies into facsimiles of the persons or things to which they are sexually attracted.”

          In other words, they like to have sex with women while pretending they’re women too. But the act itself is heterosexual. Caitlyn Jenner, brave and lovely whatshisname, Lia Thomas and the rest of the crew who practice this.

            But homosexuality, heterosexual, and bisexual are not genders.
            They describe the sex to which people are attracted, not the gender.

            Trans, as SW says, are fetishists, autogynephilics, who are men who are attracted to themselves as women.

            So they don’t fit in the LGB slot. Neither do pedophiliacs, but they are pushing to be added also.

            Next up- foot fetish! All must present their feet on demand, or be accused of bigotry.

        Many animals don’t use litterboxes. Actually, most don’t. Droppings are simply dropped where they stand. This works out better if they don’t wear clothes. I’m surprised no one has mentioned this. What if they identify as a pony?

        • The Man They Call Zazelle May 9, 2023 at 12:11 pm #

    As I read this blog, I couldn’t help but think it would make a great standup comedy bit, so I asked ChatGPT to turn it into one.

    *** *** ***
    Hey, everybody! How are we all feeling tonight? Good? Well, let me tell you, I’ve got some news that’s gonna knock your socks off. Now that the transsexual craze has died down, we’re all wondering: what’s next? I’ll tell you what’s next. The dead. Yep, you heard me right. The next big thing is transitioning into being dead.

    Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But Jim, how are we gonna do that?” Well, don’t worry. Hollywood’s got our backs with all those zombie movies they’ve been churning out lately. It’s obviously catching on, ’cause everyone’s starting to identify as the walking dead. (And let’s be honest, some people’s brains have definitely been eaten.)

    But how are we gonna make this transition happen on a global scale? A war with China, my friends. Hear me out. They’ve got hypersonic missiles that can take out millions of us at a time, which is perfect for transitioning. And then, once they’re done, they can send an army over here to work the rest of us to death in the fields. It’s genius, really.

    And speaking of transitioning, did you hear about our president? Joe Biden? Yeah, he’s mid-transition to being dead. He speaks a dead language that sounds like 20th century American English, he lurches around like a zombie, and he takes money from Chinese officials who support our transitioning program. Plus, he’s offering cash incentives to hospitals that expedite death and making pharmaceuticals available to help us transition.

    It’s catching on, too. Professional athletes keel over in the middle of games and movie actors transition on camera. TV news-readers drop away from the mic with their eyes rolling down like window shades. It’s the next big thing, people.

    But listen, as the people go, so goes the nation. We’re transitioning from a dynamic system of economic liberty, endeavor, and law to an entropic dystopia of chaos, corruption, and inertia. Nothing works anymore. Phone calls go dead, banks won’t give you money, your job has no purpose, your store has closed down, and a martini costs fifteen dollars. Death is everywhere.

    But don’t fight it, folks. Celebrate it. Foster it wherever you go. Welcome it with open arms as you slough off all the annoyances of being alive and rise to your blessed platform in the perfect gnostic Elysium promised by the theurgists of Wokery. So go ahead, become the dead you’ve always wanted to be.

    report from Europe

    In Romania, Bucharest, with the same sum of money, I can only buy 1/2 and even 1/3 of the food I was able to buy one year ago.

    I’m lucky I work online but for those who have Romanian salaries, these new prices are too much. For example, 1l of milk last year was 5-6 lei and now it’s 11 lei.
    The bread was 4 lei and now it’s 9.

    And it’s not only the food, it’s the rent, the utilities, everything is so much more expensive! Yet, I see a lot of people in malls, younger people mostly (I think the parents are still trying to spoil their kids while they take money from themselves).

    I think that a lot of gay men thought that by declaring themselves trans, they were finally going to add more men to the data pool available to them.

    By that I mean that gays have a problem that we heterosexuals don’t.

    We see someone who appeals to us of the opposite sex, and maybe wonder if we will appeal to them.

    Gay men see other attractive men, and know for a fact that there is no way in Hell that they will appeal to the majority of them. The odds are way against it.

            Well they’ve already tampered with food, drink, (and who knows what else) to cut male sperm counts by over half. Fertility ain’t what it used to be.

            One day soon virtual reality devices will “drain” a lot of reproductive energy down a dry hole.

          • thirdcoastlegend May 8, 2023 at 1:24 pm #

            hmuller-

            I’d argue that the ready online availability of explicit adult material for the past 25 years has already had a horrific effect on fertility and reproductive energy, particularly for young men.

            It also helps create totally unrealistic expectations and fried dopamine systems, again mostly among the male population.

            Having multiple 4k 27-inch monitors of hardcore filth available 24/7/365 is orders of magnitude more damaging than finding a couple issues of dad’s 60s-era Playboys in the back of the closet.

            “How did we get to this point? The answer is simple: pornography. It is a Class A drug ravaging the streets and bedrooms of every major city, affecting every man’s brain and every woman’s sense of self-worth, destroying more homes than heroin could ever dream of. Everyone has consumed porn in Western civilization today, even if they are completely innocent. Billboards, fashions, jokes, songs, attitudes stem from the damage that porn has done to society. ”

            Online pornography is a disease and it’s impossible to know how many are watching it consistently. And young boys who don’t have a clue about women are using it as an instruction course too.

            A case in Montana, a couple of very drunk college freshmen admitted to their very drunk friends they were virgins. So they agreed to have sex right then and there and exited to the dorm room. The boy thought women “liked it rough” (the actresses on TV squealed with joy) so that’s what he did. After her roommate saw the bruises, she called the police and he was arrested. The boy had never been in any trouble and thought he was acting like men acted. She dropped the charges but I’ll bet this isn’t the first and won’t be the last time online porn gets someone hurt.

            Women being strangled to death during sex is now a thing.
            I can’t remember what it’s called, and I don’t want to google it because I don’t want to be disgusted, or on a list.

            Anyway, it’s a porn thing picked up by the porn-deranged young, which sometimes ends in tragedy.

          One limitation to being attracted to the same sex is the Pheromones that trigger our attention are lacking.

            mac, It doesn’t smell like tuna, it’s something different but interesting and arousing. If you had ever kissed a girl you’d know. Now quit stroking yourself and find a girl (not your sister..) who will tolerate kissing a virgin…

        • Islander May 8, 2023 at 3:55 pm #

          I speculate—on the basis of what was said by a boy friend of mine who happened to be attractive to gay men; I often wondered whether he was bisexual.

          So anyway my speculation:

          That many men like “rougher” sex than they can generally get with a woman. They like women and sex with women, but they also like other styles. . . .

          Beryl,

          It would not surprise me that the media or Hollyweird encourage regular men into dating transvestites or transsexuals. By the way, this will all be packaged up as some sort of new virtue to be signaled.

          Some of these non-binary folks, however, are hesitant to practice truth-in-advertising, meaning they are not honest with their regular-joe-partners. They mess around for some period of time before the regular joe figures out that “she” doesn’t look so much like a she in the groin area. A number of murders have taken place when the guy finally figures out what he has been dating.

      Beryl, you remind me of a point that had long bothered me.
      I don’t have the numbers in front of me, but I would guess 98 or 99 percent of gay men are satisfied with the sex organs nature gave them and do not welcome a surgeon’s scalpel.
      Yet, there’s this big push to castrate prepubescent boys who show any gay tendencies. What’s the rush? Isn’t it possible they’ll grow up to be in the large majority who want to keep their original equipment?
      It seems to me the people who want to castrate children are a very evil and degenerate bunch. They even think their agenda needs no parental consent. Of course, the MSM portrays them as heroically progressive.

      • Beryl of Oyl May 8, 2023 at 12:11 pm #

        I guess if they castrate the kids, it’s certain they can’t reproduce, whereas giving them the chemical soup to keep them from from growing up into a hulking brute who will never look remotely feminine, is not 100% certain to cause infertility.

        There seems to be an overlap with the depopulation movement.

      • GoldenRoad May 8, 2023 at 1:34 pm #

        You are assuming. A gay male is a male who wants to be female. That is not true. And you will never find those numbers. Because what you just described does not exist.

        • hmuller May 8, 2023 at 6:48 pm #

          Are you talking to me? Perhaps I wasn’t clear. I agree, a gay man is not someone who wants to be a woman. He is not someone who wants female sex organs. That’s why the vast majority forego sex changes and keep their original equipment.

          Somehow you read the opposite of what I wrote.

    As I’ve said more than once, the sexual orientation of the global elite can be summed up in one word: necrophilia. They evidently think the dead are sexy.

    One reckons most of the global elite would be necromancers, too — dabblers in the black arts who call upon the dead and the forces of death to do their bidding. That would be fully in keeping with their necrophilia, of course.

    Interestingly, these necrophilic necromancers almost always wear the same thing — a three-piece suit with a tie, and usually a pair of immaculately polished leather shoes as well. This has almost become the standard uniform for them. So the next time you see anyone wearing such a thing, beware; he’s probably one of them.

    As to the question of why, it always gets back to the issue of limits. You know, good old overshoot, depletion and degradation.

    The average person just wants to be left alone in peace, to have a good job, enjoy family and friends, pursue hobbies and interests, gain some level of financial independence.

    They believe government exists to provide a collective framework in which to promote and defend those cultural values and social desires. Like all religions, its based on inherent faith (an evolutionary advantage) and nurtured with a good dose of propaganda.

    The problem however, is that all of these billions who envision themselves as good, wholesome and peaceful are privately poisoning the planet, destroying the very seed corn of its existence and driving the species to extinction.

    Who could know? Very few, IQ of at least 125 or higher. Would they attempt to tell, forewarn, provide guidance and advice? LOL – ever try it yourself in a well meaning, polite manner?

    So, the second option was choosen: termintation, with extreme prejudice. Don’t let on, don’t spill the beans, just shrug, raise your arms in a “who could have expected that” type of gesture.

    And here we are, the social divisions sown, the wars being launched, the hot competition over scarce resources truly underway. You can stand around and complain, you can waste your time trying to warn others, you can even join in a last ditch, communal effort to effect events in some kind of old fashioned political manner.

    Rotsa ruck.

      I’m actually not too sure how accurate this diagnosis is. A very small fraction of humanity known otherwise as the global elite control most of the planet’s wealth and resources. It is this small fraction of humanity that should take most of the blame.

      Also, it was again a very small fraction of humanity that kickstarted the whole Industrial Revolution thing. Many people at first didn’t want to join this madness that is called modern industrial ‘civilization’ — China and Japan, for example. They were forced to.

        “Many people at first didn’t want to join this madness that is called modern industrial ‘civilization’ — China and Japan, for example. They were forced to.”

        Quite right.

        Much of the labor that drove the industrial revolution was coerced. By means of slavery and by many other means.

        One of the more “indirect” means in Great Britain was the enclosure of the commons, eliminating the ability of peasants and the poor to hunt and fish, gather foodstuffs, gather firewood, materials to make fences, etc. This forced them to seek factory jobs.

        I find this to be comparable to tightening the noose around the necks of modern humans, elminating many of the features of modern life that give them choices and even livelihoods via indirect means that “herd” them into every more controlled spaces.

    I love what you did there with transitioning to death.

    Not only does our government allow both legal and illegal drugs to help people transition to a condition of dead, our government also renders legal drugs such as ivermectin, so difficult to get one’s hands on, while it besmirches the drug’s medicinal powers as to nearly squelch its use amongst the population, thereby causing, you guessed it, more death.

  29. Warren May 8, 2023 at 11:21 am #

    Well, the dead now get to vote and participate in our “Democracy”, and not just in Chicago, so there’s that. In the last presidential “election” for example in Georgia the number of dead people in larger than Zhou Biden’s margin of “Victory”.

    “Psychopaths and narcissists are just horrible people”

    I may be wrong but…

    “are horrible people”?
    Says who? By what measure? Since when are people single dimensional entities rather than complex, multi-faceted creatures?
    And name-calling, speaking to personality characterizations rather than speaking to behaviors?

    But even more profound, who still believes that psychopathy is a single, extreme condition rather than a vast range of psychological conditions from relatively benign to extreme? I would propose to all that, at it’s core, psychopathy is merely a lack of empathy, a genetic condition. Further, I would propose that the vast majority of the white populations of Europe and N.America are endowed with the mutated empathy genes of the Homo sapiens that migrated north into Europe in the ancient past.

    Yer all a bunch of psychopaths, and some of you are quite lovely to me. Some of the most amazing people that I have encountered in my 75 years have been quite recognizably, psychopaths.

    And then, there are the relatively few of you who have inherited intact empathy genes from the random, malicious matings of H.sapiens with Neanderthals.

    Like I said, I could be wrong but then, “they” used to say, not all that long ago, that there were no Neanderthal genes among us despite what was obvious to my views of the world. I could have been wrong about that too, but apparently I made a good guess.

Of course, the column, at root, is also racist, sexist, and xenophobic. As for the dead, leave them alone before your fellow travelers start digging them up to satisfy their baser urges, but yes, all of us sooner or later transition. If the unborn have rights in the minds of some, why not the dead? They’re enough loonies out there to turn your satire into a movement! Cruise ships for the dead! For any of your readers who want to explore such satire more deeply, I recommend José Saramago’s Death With Interruptions; on January 1, in a certain country, nobody dies anymore. Oddly enough, after too much life without death, lots of people start traveling abroad so that they can die. The more things change, the more they don’t.

    Once again, on an otherwise dreary day, JHK has brought a smile to my gapped-toothed, homeless guy face and yet another click on my roster of hyper-obscure words.

    “Theurgist”, thank you so much!, I’ve been looking for the correct title to attach to my S.O.

    Last week at the behest of a “soon to be bereaved” family, she brought her talents of Chakra alignment and other rituals to good use. ( all free ’cause, you gets what you pays for.)

    Favorite people, totems, images, aromas and music, gathered and assisted in an effortless launch for the departing.

    In the past, my S.O. has taken offense when I referred to her talents as magic, but I didn’t know what else to call it…Voo Doo? Santeria? Three Card Monte?

    Anyway, the family was relieved and grateful,
    they were very complimentary of the rituals she invoked/performed.

    I think of it as an inverse Exorcism where you are being positive about the departure of the Entity instead of scaring the shit out of everybody.

    I will leave you with 2 things; My womans’ daily, cheery reminder;
    “we are all circling the drain”.

    And a poem I memorized from a tomb stone on Cemetery Island, Canyon Ferry Lake, Montana.

    “think of me as you pass by, as you are now, so once was I.

    as I am now, you will be soon, make peace with all, prepare for doom.”

    (I can’t remember the original authors name and I’m only permitted one Google/day).

    So much for the free market. States are banning gas stoves. The latest war against appliances is coming for your dish washer. New models will be designed to barely apply any heat or water to your dishes, so you are left with remaining gunk, or you can simply hand wash them after running them through the cycle.

    Same goes for fridges that will not be able to keep cool enough temps (because of the environmental regulations), and clothes washers and dryers that use so little water and heat your apparel is still smelly and dirty.

    May as well go back to the old-fashioned ice box and the washing board/tub. We are headed there for a large variety of reasons.

    To be, or not to be, that is the question:

    Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer

    The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,

    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles

    And by opposing end them. To die—to sleep,

    No more; and by a sleep to say we end

    The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks

    That flesh is heir to: ’tis a consummation

    Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;

    To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there’s the rub:

    For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,

    When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,

    Must give us pause—there’s the respect

    That makes calamity of so long life.

      In conclusion, on a suspicion and fear of very bad dreams appearing to us in our graves, we decide to stay here and bear all troubles….

      • WadeWaters May 8, 2023 at 12:36 pm #

        Indeed. Here’s the conclusion.

        But that the dread of something after death,

        The undiscovere’d country, from whose bourn

        No traveller returns, puzzles the will,

        And makes us rather bear those ills we have

        Than fly to others that we know not of?

        Thus conscience doth make cowards of us all,

        And thus the native hue of resolution

        Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,

        And enterprises of great pith and moment

        With this regard their currents turn awry

        And lose the name of action.

    In September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.” The agenda consists of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). You have probably seen the SDG logo which is a color wheel made up of 17 segments.

    Agenda 2030 outlines a blueprint for world socialism, stating that we are embarking on a “collective journey.” What is largely undiscussed is the agenda’s plan for mass migration. The Agenda 2030 white paper only mentions migration in regard to ensuring “safe, orderly, and regular migration involving full respect for human rights and the humane treatment of migrants.” However, in a report by the IOM (International Organization of Migration) titled “Migration and the 2030 Agenda”, an intentional mass migration plan is presented.

    The 156-page paper almost immediately states “The 2030 Agenda recognizes migration as a core development consideration, which marks the first time migration is integrated explicitly into the global development agenda” and further states that migrant men, women, and children are recognized as “agents of development.” The report goes on to claim that “Many SDG targets can only be fully achieved if migration and migrants are considered. Not doing so may limit progress made by constraining the comprehensiveness and sustainability of efforts.” This point is furthered when the report mentions “It is possible to link migration to every Goal in the 2030 Agenda.” The report then goes on to show, in detail, the importance of migration in each of the 17 sustainable development goals.

    The report continues. In a section titled The Implementation Process, the paper lists various ways to raise “public awareness” of the 2030 agenda through means such as social media, traditional media, print and electronic materials (my Samsung phones came with an SDG app pre-installed), cultural events such as fairs, concerts, bike rides, and radio sessions, media training to “introduce migration in the SDGs to journalists and others working in media”, and more.

    We encourage you to download the paper yourself and read it thoroughly, this is just a quick glimpse at the plan. The full report can be found here.

    A few more important white papers that relate to UN migration objectives can be found below:

    Migration and the United Nations Post-2015 Development Agenda

    Migration and the SDGs: Measuring Progress

    IOM Institutional Strategy on Migration and Sustainable Development

    Global Compact for Migration

    The collapse of the US southern border is part of a deliberate and carefully executed plan to usher in Agenda 2030. The United States is the largest financial contributor to the United Nations. Despite this, it is clear that the UN has become a creature that not even its master can control, with an agenda to change the United States of America as we know it.

    “Death is everywhere in America now, hovering over everything we do. Don’t fight it — celebrate it!”

    Death is at America and the World’s core. It has always been so. Militarized Strong-Arms proudly deliver death nonstop around the Globe… and now even so within our own border. We the People watch endless depictions of death on television and video. Very troubled individuals inflict death upon innocents around them as a misguided and sickly and futile and cowardly way to try to appease their inward devils.

    For America to have a future it must do something it has never done before: Get Death out of its Heart and Soul. For it is in that fascination and preoccupation with Death as a pathology and a National Lifestyle and as tool for international relations that is killing the Soul of our Nation… and We the People within it. Our very humanity and survival is at stake… and neither will be achieved until and unless we have the wisdom and personal agency to get that deadly poison our of our souls. Finally and for once and hopefully forever.

    Before a sick person can get well they have to admit they are sick. Before our Nation and World can get on a course of healing we have to acknowledge the deep sickness we suffer from and get serious about expelling the poisons and toxins that rob us of our fundamental divinity.

    There is Life, and there is Death. A true binary choice. And unlike our birth sex, we get to chose the path of one or the other. Said another way, there is Life and everything else is Anti-Life. And we have seen what living among those who choose the path of Anti-Life is like.

    We can’t change the World by ourselves alone. But we can – and must – start with ourselves to walk and celebrate in our own life the path of Life and not the toxic noxious stench of Death.

    For if we don’t… then we truly are a failed species.

    • jim May 8, 2023 at 2:40 pm #

      This present “…transition into the dead…” unfortunately appears to be, in large part, a well thought out military policy which we first applied to countries like Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan and are now applying to the domestic U.S. population.

      Our modern military uses, in tandem, both counterinsurgency (trying to win hearts and minds) as well as counterterrorism (hunting down and killing of all designated enemies).

      It is this latter counterterrorism tactic which now appears in ascendency in our own country.

      As Jacob Siegel has so brilliantly argued in his “A Guide to Understanding the Hoax of the Century,” what is happening now with the U.S. is that the ruling party has created a feedback loop of surveillance and control refined through the counterterrorism initiatives of the intelligence community itself, especially FBI, CIA and NSA, to maintain and consolidate its power within the U.S.

      I agree that constraining the personal impulse towards death in our hearts and souls is a necessary first step but if this counterterrorism policy is now literally being implemented, will it be enough?

      • Roundball Shaman May 8, 2023 at 3:28 pm #

        “This present ‘…transition into the dead’ unfortunately appears to be… a well thought out military policy which we first applied to countries like Iraq… and are now applying to the domestic U.S. population.”

        The first rule of being in a war is the realization that YOU ARE IN A WAR. Many of We the People still don’t understand that there has been a long-running war against our hearts and minds by various means of propaganda and social engineering and financial undermining and attack on social mores and other means… and now by some sinister high-tech assaults of various means.

        And even worse… many of our fellow citizens seem to enjoy the abuse and crave more.

        I guess you can’t save somebody who doesn’t want to be saved. But the least such people could do is leave the rest of us the hell alone and not trying to drag us down with them and their submission to the Anti-Lifers.

        “I agree that constraining the personal impulse towards death in our hearts and souls is a necessary first step but if this counterterrorism policy is now literally being implemented, will it be enough?”

        These false-gods-among-us are not infallible. We still control ourselves (if we choose to) and what we choose to believe and do and think. The mistake for a person is to allow the thought that we are indeed powerless to take hold in our mind. Because once that happens… we no longer exist as a free human being but only as the fully-owned possession of another…

        As the Anti-Life Forces have intended from the beginning.

Almost never establish a satisfactory transference with the therapist, arrive late to the session, etc. And they’re notorious deadbeats–they don’t pay their bills.

    “Psychopaths and narcissists aren’t ‘mentally ill,’ they’re just horrible people.

    They are people who have not had to work for what they have. Everything was given to them. They were told they were wonderful without have to do wonders of any kind.

    How will anyone who has not suffered feel the pain of those who do? They can smile and nod, show the appropriate response.

        • toktomi May 8, 2023 at 5:49 pm #

          @K-Chien

          In my world picture, you seem to be viewing psychopathy in its most extreme sense, the clinical definition. I take exception to the clinicians.

          I view psychopathy as merely a genetic predisposition for having no empathy – the norm for white, European and N.American populations.

          I have no clues about narcissism which sounds like an extreme case of high self esteem – which probably beats the norm which is having shitty self esteem.

          If we’re past peak empathy, I would have to say that was a damn pathetic peak; there exists very little empathy in this country. Come on, this is the country of ‘paths that find fail videos on YouToob to be hilarious. This is the country where “sorry for your loss” is substituted as a psychopathicly learned response for emotional empathy for someone losing a loved one.

          The empath’s response to a friend’s loss of a loved one:
          same as the friend’s response; silence. There are no words for that kind of emotional pain. If you can feel their pain, then you can feel how stupid any of your words would sound.

          Most of the prattle that masquerades as empathy is merely socially manipulative learned responses. Yer all psychopaths, darlin’. It doesn’t mean that yer all bad people.

      @ K-Chien:

      One wonders where you came by your insights into psychopaths and narcissists–and, I would add, sociopaths. Have you known many such people?

      I have encountered quite a few. What characterizes many of them–maybe about half–is heavy abuse of alcohol and/or drugs. As Night Owl observes, they often grew up abused by other psychos and narcissists. Actually, it appears to me that even a tendency along those lines is a sign of some level of abuse.

      But there’s another type, and these are mostly just grifters–often very stupid grifters who are being manipulated by others. In those cases where I’ve been in a position to know something about it, I’ve noticed that their whole families were a bunch of grifters. Where “normal” people grow up in families that teach them right from wrong, ethics, morality, and civility, grifters grow up being taught that grifting is the way to get ahead in life.

      There are also a lot of people around who cause a lot of harm to others–usually people who are close enough to them to give a shit, such a family members. At some level, I think they get pleasure from it: “I hurt someone with impunity; therefore, ‘I won.’ ” At another level, I think many of them do this on autopilot. That’s the way they grew up, and they don’t know any other way to interact with people–as with the “cycle of abuse” being handed down through families over several generations.

      Yes, people who behave this way are in fact “horrible people.” Most of the time, it’s not mental illness–though the drunks and druggies can certainly appear so, and, granted, most of them do have brain damage from the toxins.

      • mrs_saj May 8, 2023 at 3:34 pm #

        Islander,

        This is a true story. My paternal uncle lives in Wyoming. His only child, a daughter, is my only cousin. He taught her to shoot as a child.

        She lives in Kansas and went in to qualify and apply for her concealed carry permit. With a 357 magnum. She shot. She qualified. The gun store submitted the paperwork. She has an obviously feminine name. Her target results were so good that combined with her female name, the county or the state, whoever, did not believe the results were accurate. The government refused her application for concealed carry and told her to go back to the gun store and re-qualify in the range test and re-apply. So she did. During her second visit she set the range record for the best qualification round for concealed carry at the gun store. The government took her application this time and accepted it without comment.

        My uncle cannot tell this story without laughing until he cries. I confess, I am typing this with a big smile on my face.

        And no, I don’t think women are better or worse marksmen than men. I just think making assumptions can get one into trouble. It is not a skill that requires brute force. Therefore, if a woman is at a disadvantage, it is a disadvantage that she has created, like not practicing her shooting.

        • Islander May 8, 2023 at 4:09 pm #

          The source of my comment:

          I once copyedited a book on competition shooting—I think it was just with pistols, but it as a long time ago.

          That is where I read that women often make better marksmen than men, because they have better awareness as I mentioned, and this affects timing and accuracy of shot.

            Pool (aka Billiards) is another sport where males have no natural advantage due to strength and speed and yet the top female pool players (and some of them are really terrific) are rarely if ever able to beat top male players. Why this is so I’m not sure.

            I once attended world championship straight pool matches in NYC. Men seemed to play a more daring style, women more conservative

          • Jarek May 8, 2023 at 7:49 pm #

            But men can learn those things. And their superior eye sight put them ahead of women at the highest levels of competition.

            At the ordinary level, yes women may be superior and/or learn quicker.

          I’m a strong believer in women being armed. Look what happened in Arizona last week, an attractive blond woman murdered & assaulted while out jogging. Even a little .380 automatic would have given her a fighting chance.

          • badberries May 8, 2023 at 7:16 pm #

            My woman packs a Ruger LC9s, it’s the only firearm I’ve lost control of in a long time. Yeah, it’s that small but she likes it and she’s good with it.

          • Jarek May 8, 2023 at 7:53 pm #

            Trying to talk to a woman is the same as assaulting her. Women should be free to shoot before things get worse. What if he follows up his verbal assault with a physical one? As the Neo-Cons used to say about nuking Mecca, Why wait?

            I hadn’t heard about that.

            I have heard ad nauseum about some homeless guy who died on the NY subway.
            They say he was brutally murdered by a white dude just because he wanted to ride on the subway (I saw the governor of New York say that).

            But I actually watched the video (although people are warned against it “It’s so horrible to watch”).

            I saw a white guy holding him by the neck, while a black guy held his feet, and some hispanic (?) guy half-heartedly pitching in to hold his arm at some point. Two white women stood by and watched. No one said “Hey, he’s not a bit violent”, the way the media tells us “eye witnesses said”.

            I saw them let him go while he was clearly still alive, since he was moving and breathing. They put him in the recovery position, as advised by the dude with the Mexican accent who was filming the event.
            The video lasted about 3 minutes.

            The propaganda is that the white guy was the only one involved, the restraint was unprovoked, and he was choked for 15 minutes until he was dead.

            Those are all lies. But be sure not to actually watch the video!! That is not recommended.

            I’m not seeing any difficulty with that. Are there people who could not, if they wanted to, form their letters neatly? I mean, it has to be sheer lack of even a slight effort.

    We had a dress rehearsal of how little you can participate in the things that mark the division between living and not living.

    We weren’t allowed to do basic things like breathing and going outside, interacting with other humans, without government regulation.

        mrs_saj,
        I agree with you… but I’m viewing it from my own experience. when someone tells me I can’t do something… I try my best to prove them wrong… (my husband, just last week called me “Independent and Defiant”. I took it as a compliment.
        In today’s world, the climb has become steeper to be “The Little Engine That Could”, but I believe we all have it in us, and if everyone could think of themselves as that little engine, and take pride in the upward journey?
        Or is it an upward journey, or just a different direction?

        • mrs_saj May 10, 2023 at 9:24 am #

          Itzybytz,

          I refer to it as my enlarged obstinancy gland, lol. I do not like be bossed around.

          I had a dress rehearsal with vaxxines when I got shingles at the age of 47, the exact same month the Shingrix vaxx got FDA approval. I did not like what I was hearing from my doc or his physician’s assistant. Both of them had had shingles before they were 35. The whole “shingles over 50 years of age thing” is complete bullshit. It’s about insurance coverage, which means it’s about money. And I said no to that vaxxine.

          Fast forward three years to COVID and I was not gung ho to take not just a new vaxxine, but one with only experimental use authorization. No thanks. And then it took me months during the roll out to figure out it was actually a bio weapon.

          I just don’t like being told what to do. And lots of times, the folks doing the telling, don’t follow their own rules (eg. eco warriors jetsetting the globe, Gavin Newsome at the French Laundry without a mask, Skeletor Nancy at the hair salon, etc).

          I’m sure it’s a character flaw that I have, but it has been a rather useful one.

          @ Itzybytz:

          When someone tells you that you can’t do something, there can be all kinds of reasons for this, but few of them are well intentioned. Listening to “stuff people say” is like listening to the wind blow. It is generally meaningless–except for a few cases where it is self-interested, manipulative, or malicious.

          That said, there are a few trusted people you should pay attention to, but you know who they are.

    Could my wish come true a tiny little bit, that people with subpoena power start to pull aside the WEF curtain see what and who really lurks backstage?

    A small beginning:

    “World Economic Forum-Affiliated Pro-Censorship Group Is Hit With House Panel Subpoena”

    httpX://reclaimthenet.org/garm-wfa-subpoena

    “The House Judiciary Committee has issued subpoenas to executives at a group often affiliated with the World Economic Forum (WEF).

    Chair of the committee, Rep. Jim Jordan said the Global Alliance for Responsible Media (GARM) and the organization that created it, the World Federation of Advertisers (WFA), might be allowing the violation of US antitrust law.

    “To advance our oversight and inform potential legislation related to these collusive practices, the Committee must understand whether, how, and to what extent GARM and WFA facilitate collusion to prevent certain content from benefiting from advertising dollars and to reduce that content’s presence online,” Jordan wrote.

    According to the letters, the House Judiciary Committee has attempted to get communications and documents “related to how GARM and WFA act to demonetize and eliminate disfavored content online, in addition to other information” since March.

    However, both the WFA and GARM did not provide the documents requested.
    The subpoenas addressed to GARM’s co-founder Robert Rakowitz and WFA president Raja Rajamannar, demand communications and documents from January 2019 to date. The organizations have until May 26 to respond.

    Read the letter here.”

    I ‘d like to know whether these fellows Rakowitz and Rajamannar are “Young Global Leaders” of “leaders of Tomorrow.”

    I wish there were an alphabetical listing of these types. RajaRaja is mentioned at the site below (one of the “judge”), and the whole thing—the “clean-cut young globalist” head shots, the global companies, and the buzzwords—sure have a WEF look about them.

    I beg to differ, yes there is a much better option, and that is for our government to get off their self-entitled asses and learn the concept of restraint and better budgeting within their means.

    • TPTB-USA May 9, 2023 at 6:08 am #

      Says Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen: “There is no good option other than raising the debt ceiling.” ~ cowbell81

      If you take a penny and double it in a day, you will have 2 cents, if you double that 2 cents the following day you will have 4 cents. … in 28 days you will have over a million dollars.

      I contend that this progression is a feature of the existing format for life, and in order to accommodate the progression (and avoid death), the money supply will need to expand.

      In light of the above, I suspect that Janet Yellen is providing an objective assessment; but, in regard to how that money will be spend, she is not providing us with an objective assessment.

      My sense is that the progression is unsustainable (disparity is the consequence), and my conclusion is that the existing format for life is played-out.

      In order to fix a problem, one needs to understand the problem within the context of the big picture, and one also needs to comprehend the ramifications of various solutions.

      What percent of the population comprehends the problem? I would suggest that it is a very small percent.

      Is there a proposed solution other than the Build Back Better/The Great Reset/2030?

      An objective assessment would be for Janet Yellen to explain that which is about to transpire is a money/power grab by her team.

      Since I do not see a proposed solution anywhere near as detailed as the Build Back Better/The Great Reset/2030 agenda, I suspect that citizens of the world had better embrace the idea of change, try and comprehend the new format for life, and figure the ramifications of how the new system will be “gamed”.

      The problem I have with all of this, is that Janet Yellen and her team have conducted themselves in an immoral manner in order to grab power and impose their grand experiment on the citizens of the world.

      So, do we try and make the best of a bad situation (and if so, how?), or do we just basically exterminate man kind?

      Who is a respected person of authority that will step-up and explain the predicament to the citizens of the world?

    If you haven’t already you really ought to watch the movie ‘White Noise’, which is the one about a toxic plume stemming from a trainwreck in Ohio and which came out just before the same thing happened in reality 🙂 Anyway, it’s an eery presaging by the Death Cult and its Hollywood production, wherein they’re blatantly conditioning the audience to become death-aroused

    Here’s some quotes by the protagonist:

    “Let me whisper the terrible word from the Old English German, from the Old Norse. Death. Death. These crowds were assembled in the name of death. They were there to attend tributes to the dead. But not the already dead. The future dead. The living dead among us.”

    “What if death is nothing but sound? You hear it forever. Sound, all around. Uniform. White.”

    “Maybe once we stop denying death, we can proceed calmly to die. We simply walk toward the sliding doors.”

    I’ve been playing around with a civil disruption index that measures the degree of economic decline combined with the increase in domestic violence.

    Right now I have 3 inputs, which is the peso:dollar exchange rate, the number of store closings, and of course the sheer volume of mass murder events, regardless of weapon of choice.

    (The MX peso hit another all time high around noon, but was driven down a bit to close a fraction lower.)

    At a certain point, it will be obvious that a civil war is underway, one that finally answers the question of how will the beligerents be divided.

    So many thought it might be geographic, but driven by urban vs rural instead of regions or states. Other logical projection were race, religión or even class.

    But who would of thought the divide would be between normal and degraded? That the government would side with the misfits, mentally ill, drug addicts and various other low level criminal?

    In retrospect, however, it makes perfect sense if the objective is to destroy the productive, hard working middle class. After all, it is they who driving energy demand, and expect the government to act in some form or matter of representing their interests.

    Since the goal is to reduce this segment to its historical role of serfdom, then it makes perfect sense to align the states interests with those that can freely attack them with state sanctioned approval and protection.

    Books on blacks abound. “His Name Is George Floyd” is just one.

    “A landmark biography by two prizewinning Washington Post reporters that reveals how systemic racism shaped George Floyd’s life and legacy–from his family’s roots in the tobacco fields of North Carolina, to ongoing inequality in housing, education, health care, criminal justice, and policing–telling the singular story of how one man’s tragic experience brought about a global movement for change.

    The events of that day are now tragically familiar: on May 25, 2020, George Floyd became the latest Black person to die at the hands of the police, murdered outside of a Minneapolis convenience store by white officer Derek Chauvin. The video recording of his death set off a series of protests in the United States and around the world, awakening millions to the dire need for reimagining this country’s broken systems of policing. But behind a face that would be graffitied onto countless murals, and a name that has become synonymous with civil rights, there is the reality of one man’s stolen life: a life beset by suffocating systemic pressures that ultimately proved inescapable.

    This biography of George Floyd shows the athletic young boy raised in the projects of Houston’s Third Ward who would become a father, a partner, a friend, and a man constantly in search of a better life. In retracing Floyd’s story, Washington Post reporters Robert Samuels and Toluse Olorunnipa bring to light the determination Floyd carried as he faced the relentless struggle to survive as a Black man in America.

    Placing his narrative within the larger context of America’s deeply troubled history of institutional racism, His Name Is George Floyd examines the Floyd family’s roots in slavery and sharecropping, the segregation of his Houston schools, the overpolicing of his communities, the devastating snares of the prison system, and his attempts to break free from drug dependence–putting today’s inequality into uniquely human terms. Drawing upon hundreds of interviews and extensive original reporting, Samuels and Olorunnipa offer a poignant and moving exploration of George Floyd’s America, revealing how a man who simply wanted to breathe ended up touching the world.”

    He simply wanted to breathe, get it?

    What happened to George Floyd was horrible and it gave blacks a powerful propaganda tool. ‘See, I told you, whites are totally evil.’

    Obama must have been both outraged and ecstatic, and for good reason.

    • tucsonspur May 9, 2023 at 5:17 am #

      This post was subsequent to one of mine that was deleted, referring to a NY Post article entitled ‘Obama’s last act is to force suburbs to be less white and less wealthy’, from May, 2016.

      Germane and informative as to Obama’s past and perhaps current motivations, there was no reason for its deletion. As I said in my post, the race war is on against Obama’s cohorts and the Black Klux Klan.

      The open border is evidence enough for the attack on American whites, eventually diluting the white vote and accelerating the pace at which white Americans become a minority.

      MSM and blacks are having a ‘slobbering love affair’.

      tucson,

      Thank you for the synopsis.

      One of the most interesting facts about George Floyd that I ever read was that he was awarded a college scholarship (I think it was for basketball, but I could have the sport wrong). But he lost the scholarship because he could not (or would not) finish high school.

      That says a lot.

    The Chinese have recently made a blockbuster movie in China copying the Tom Cruise movie “Top Gun” called “Born to Fly” (“Changkong Zhi Wang”, literally “King of the Sky”). In the final scene of the movie, the heroic, handsome Chinese pilots shoot down 2 American drones over the South China Sea.

    They will probably make toys and action figures based on the movie?

    What toys do American boys play with these days?

    I once took a 45 minute hot air balloon ride. Before ascending in the balloon, the balloon pilot, a British bloke, exhorted everyone to use the bathroom before the flight. Fortunately, the balloon crashed into a farmer’s field shortly before I felt a big dump coming on….

      Martian Canals In Earth’s Sky?

      I’m unsure how cute little grids across the sky (presumably using ‘carbon-embedded’ energy as fuel) and until they dissipate and have to do it over and over again are going to help with anthropogenic global-warming/climate-change.

      That’s in part why I find chemtrails a hard swallow… assuming that’s what you’re getting at, Night Owl. Seems old news too.

      When I visited the ‘middle’ (more or less) of the North American continent where air traffic might be busiest or at least more multidirectional, I often saw trails like that.

      And if jets have to be kept relatively well-spaced in high-traffic, multidirectional areas, we might well see nicely-space matrices, exactly like that. (Maybe, in the spirit of multitasking, while shuttling passengers to and fro they are also spraying?)

      ——

      “During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it was erroneously believed that there were ‘canals’ on the planet Mars. These were a network of long straight lines in the equatorial regions from 60° north to 60° south latitude on Mars, observed by astronomers using early telescopes without photography…

      …Around the turn of the century there was even speculation that they were engineering works, irrigation canals constructed by a civilization of intelligent aliens indigenous to Mars. By the early 20th century, improved astronomical observations revealed the ‘canals’ to be an optical illusion, and modern high-resolution mapping of the Martian surface by spacecraft shows no such features.” ~ Wikipedia

    ” ‘I notice that Bobby Jr. is now cautioning us against ‘retribution’. ‘ ~ Beryl of Oyl

    My concern is that there is only a short period of time before some combination of Xi and the WEF/Build Back Better/The Great Reset gain sufficient power to where the citizens no longer have a say in their destiny.

    Some politicians have pointed out that disparity is an issue that should be addressed, but there has not been a comprehensive discussion of this issue.

    Last Monday The Man They Call Zazelle posted the following:

    “Back in Classical Greece, Plato suggested that in a just society there should be no more than a 5:1 spread in income between richest and poorest. That was a hard sell then, and still would be…

    Given the seriousness of what we face, this is a conversation we must have. The wealth already wrenched from nature might just be enough to buy us a lasting future if it were shared, managed, and ploughed into solutions.”

    For there to be any hope for a say in our destiny, the population will need to unite (and ‘retribution’ is not a unity ingredient).” ~

      Zaz, but isn’t killing people, historically speaking, what anarchism is all about? Anarchistic philosophy seems to have been if you assassinate enough national leaders, and set off enough bombs in public places, utopia will ensue. I don’t know, maybe anarchists have evolved from those halcyon, blood soaked days 1870-1920, with a brief, violent resurgence during the Spanish Civil War? Perhaps not, tho. How much video have we seen of black clad rioters in city streets in the past 10 years carrying banners featuring the iconic ‘A’, battling the police, setting fires, smashing windows of storefront businesses, and dragging hapless civilians out of automobiles and beating them bloody on the pavement?

      • The Man They Call Zazelle May 9, 2023 at 5:42 am #

        BackRowHeckler first, do you sincerely believe that these supposed videos and/or events that you speak of represent anarchists’ activities entirely in all times, places and contexts and then that what you think you know is even true?

        If you do, despite the world’s largest library at your fingertips, my previous efforts and so on, what could I possibly say that hasn’t already been said or is not already available for you to research that would convince you otherwise?

        At the same time, even if we agree for the sake of argument that your examples were composed entirely of anarchists and that those people said so, etc., what would be the comparative statistics of their destruction versus the State’s– say, even just one bomb over Nagasaki?

            So, in your opinion, are they actual anarchists, or are they astroturf bullshit calling themselves anarchists, or is there something else there I’m not aware of?

            Keep in mind, their purpose seems to be working for the deep state to terrorize citizens and burn down small businesses in the cities that they want to turn into Green New Deal utopias…” ~ MaryQueen April 15, 2023 at 9:56 am

            ——

            Mary, I think you’ve more or less answered your own questions, which I’m tempted to agree with…

            While I haven’t looked a whole lot into it, what I have so far makes it look like a loose movement and maybe, at least in part, more like a color movement/revolution, and (so) most likely not true anarchy.

            Some well-intended things can of course be co-opted, so this could also be the case and since it appears as a loose movement it would seem easier to do. Entire societies can get co-opted after all, such as with virus-scares and whatnot.

            Anarchy, is a word/concept that is not immune to political corruption/abuse/co-opting, thus sensitive to misunderstanding, misinterpretation and so on.

            Anarchists for the most part are peaceful, relatively pacifist and non-violent/non-coercive, laterally-hierarchic, healthy-community-oriented and the like.
            So they are highly unlikely to act in certain contradictory ways or accept contracts, etc., from relatively-opposing outfits/players/operations because, at the very least, that would place them in conflicts of interest.

            These are revolutionary times, so just about everything’s on the table and up for grabs by just about everyone.
            So the effects are probably going to be increasingly surreal and/or unexpected, as they already appear to be becoming.

            Insofar as there are and will be illusions and the like in play in the aforementioned regards, paradoxically, the ultimate effects will be very real.

            Maybe sort of like being inside a movie and watching real life.

            We are in revolutionary times. Watching the fallout from post-modernist bollocks is quite something. Or let’s just call it what it is, a color revolution.

            The Woke Jacobins are making their moves in earnest against the so-called “right” (e.g., conservatives, mostly Christians).

            Just in the past 48 hours, Woke Jacobin mobs have gone on the attack doing things like burning effigies of guys slated to speak on campuses, and damaging property, bomb threats; Matt Walsh’s phone was hacked and his Twitter account taken over; a Chicago Walmart looted and ransacked so badly they are closing, etc. etc. etc. all in the name of progressive values I suppose.

            And we know that the biggest supporter of the WJs/SJWs is the deep state. So this party is just getting started.

    Political Perspectives Colorization

    The emergence of racial hierarchies that placed the white race on top during times of colonization and slavery is not a coincidence. Similar perspectives allow us to recognize how science, historically dominated by male practitioners, have constantly propagated misogynistic ideas. Hence, no demographic can single-handedly draw an accurate picture of scientific knowledge…

    …Ever since its importation into science during the seventeenth century, the concept of race has stood on unreliable grounds. Ever-changing historic transformations morphed the definitions of the concept, but its use persisted with a legacy that still shadows genomic research. The story of race and biology is emblematic to the social constructivist approach to scientific knowledge production. Scientists throughout time have not lived or practiced in political vacuums; rather, politics of their times have shaped and gotten shaped by their science. Pervasive assumptions about the neutrality of scientific results fall short to explain the story of race, and this essay sheds light on this story knit by connected threads of history—in the past, present, and future.” ~ Hussein Mohsen, ‘Race and Genetics: Somber History, Troubled Present’, Yale Journal of Biology & Medicine, National Library of Medicine

        In other words, in contradiction to classical anarchism, Za doesn’t accept the validity of White groups. And since he sees the White power structure as paramount, he’s in favor of Black and Brown groups who seek to topple it. So in effect, Black and Brown groups are fine.

        It’s just an iteration of Communism. The practical take precedence over theory. Theoretically, he might be against Black groups per se, but since they are useful, they’re fine.

      CV-19 has assumed cultural myth status. No one knows exactly what it is or if it even exists, yet the mere mention of it is supposed to confer a certain amount of sympathy or seriousness, and every little sniffle, sneeze, or cough is now presumed to possibly be the dreaded CV-19. Like 9-11, the success of such psyops can only be judged several years after the initial event; the criteria being has the host population been successfully inoculated with the meme for generations to come? The recent uptick in mask use here locally, in spite of no evidence of any kind to support it, indicates to me at least that it’s been an overwhelming success.

      Similarly, I received a message from my local provider this morning in the email, even though I have no appointments coming up for another six months. Curious, I logged into their portal to see what it could be, suspecting another bill for this, that, or the other. Turns out they’re receiving too many direct patient to provider queries through their portal and are now going to start charging appointment fees if they keep up. No doubt many if not most are CV-19 related I imagine. Having spun the population up into a frenzy over nothing at all, they’re now complaining about providing too much uncompensated service to alleviate all that, with the kicker being that if you do have a CV-19 or other respiratory complaint, they won’t see you in person anyway. Once again, I have to ask myself, why we are throwing money – never mind respect – at these shysters at all?

        There is a pretty nasty cold or flu bug going round right now.
        Had it for a week straight and even took four days off trying to get over it.

        • K-Chien May 9, 2023 at 10:06 am #

          It might be a hoax. Are you sure you were sick and it wasn’t the new world order messing with you?

            If the covid tests can be believed it was not covid there is such a thing as other nasty cold and flu bugs.

          • Paula D May 9, 2023 at 4:25 pm #

            That is the flaw in the “there is no such thing as covid” people’s “logic”.
            The covid tests don’t test positive for other viruses.

            Ooops! I forgot. There are no such things as viruses.

            You aren’t really sick, you are just deluded into thinking you are sick. You’re fine. Quit your bitching.

            A bowl of cornflakes or can of gasoline might easily test positive for covid. The covid test is meaningless. You still don’t grasp some of the basics, Paula.

          • Night Owl May 10, 2023 at 4:13 am #

            Yes, Paula. All of those inatimate objects that were testing positive with your tests were no doubt very ill with “Covid-19.”
            Like so many of us “asymptomatic” carriers ravaged by “Covid-19.”

            🙂

            When you find the time, feel free to provide us with your incontrovertible evidence that the tests “don’t test positive for other viruses,” (Q-level phrasing by the way–impressive) and include the evidence that shows that your source knows how to identify “Covid-19” prior to the testing.

            Your posts often unintentionally amuse, and I feel your next one could go down in the CFN record books.

            Unleash your true power.

            The PCR tests were the ones that tested positive for goats and papayas.

            The new ones are antigen tests.

            I can’t expect either of you to adapt to new facts and test realities, though. I don’t know why I bother responding.

            K-Chien, you do recall people got sick before 2020, yes? Sometimes even a bad cold or flu, if my 40+ years of pre-“covid” life experience was worth anything to the data set.

            The hoax you’re mocking was convincing people that the cold or flu was suddenly something that not only must be avoided at all costs, but also can now be prevented. It can’t. (Source: the entirety of human history.)

    While topical conversations can provided a necessary outlet, they do tend to obscure larger issues at play driving world events.

    If we once again touch on the core aspects of our post surplus era, we can observe that overshoot, depletion and degradation are the prime factors influencing both domestic and foreign policy.

    Clearly, CV was a result of broad scale research programs dating back decades, developed as part of an overall bio-chemical weapons platform targeting various populations.

    Its release initiated both the implementation of control programs long planned to be placed into effect, and of course paved the way for the introduction of vaccines included within the overall development project.

    Now, if we switch focus to looming WW3 and the continued escalation by western allies, these activities fit neatly within a top down perspective of viewing global events through the lens of limits and fallacy of endless growth.

    It’s not just economic systems at risk, but entire social cultural constructs governing various nation states competing for the last economically recoverable natural resources.

    If you take a moment to consider these implications, you can quickly see why political converstations are essentially moot. So too parlor room debates about various attempts at organizing fair and equitable socio-economic systems.

    Reality has been freed to roam the earth, and is now visiting its impact on everyone, with some regions feeling the effects sooner than others.

    We can easily observe and measure, in real time, exactly how this process is proceding. Everyone can see what is occurring on a discrete level, but few seem to be able to pull together a coherent overall picture of what is happening, why it’s happending and where we are headed.

    This is a really morbid mood Mr. K. I know all of this stuff is very distressing and disheveling. Though at this particular juncture it doesn’t seem quite fitting to attend the Ball of the Dead. I was hopeful that we would be able to find an antidote for zombiism. Several individuals who are traveling in the caravan have clearly had their brains gnawed on and it is really concerning.

      Welcome to the week’s posting SSL, good to read your response! Not much of a morbid person, eh? My Great-Grandfather was an under-taker (aka “mortician”), so I have heard stories about his sense of humor. Maybe Moderna will come out with a vaccine for the case of zombiism that plagues our society?

      • SoftStarLight May 9, 2023 at 1:13 pm #

        Oh wow that is really neat actually. I definitely have a dark side i suppose but maybe not so much morbid mostly lol. I like the title Undertaker. Or would Moderna want to create a “vaccine” that causes zombiism? They might do both for maximum profits?

          Hmmm, you intrigue me now that you mention you “definitely have a dark side”. 😉

    For those that don’t read MoA, here is Karlof1’s recap of Putin’s victory day speech:

    Very straight forward, no mincing of words or descriptions as Putin makes it very clear what’s occurring and why. He makes the very important distinction that Russia’s fight isn’t with “the vast majority of people on the planet”; rather, it’s with “Western globalist elites [who] still insist on their exclusivity [and in pursuit of their “ideology of superiority (that) is inherently disgusting, criminal and deadly”], pit people against each other and split societies, provoke bloody conflicts and coups, sow hatred, Russophobia, aggressive nationalism, and destroy family and traditional values that make a person a person.

    And all this in order to continue to dictate, impose on the peoples their will, their rights, rules, and in fact, a system of plunder, violence and suppression.” They are behind the forces of “international terrorism” that has brought “civilization … once again [to] a crucial turning point.” Putin goes on to declare, “I am convinced that the experience of solidarity and partnership in the years of fighting a common threat is our invaluable legacy. It is a solid foundation right now, when the irreversible movement towards a more just multipolar world based on the principles of trust and indivisible security, equal opportunities for the distinctive and free development of all countries and peoples is gaining momentum.”

    What isn’t addressed is why the West is pursuing this course of action. Given the danger of nuclear war, why continue to provoke and escalate?

    Because everyone has the data ie the true remaining economically recoverable reserves. And we can therefore surmise that the Olduvai cliff is fast approaching; in fact we may already be falling.

    The West is now in a post poltical era – there is nothing anyone can do from an organizational POV. That is, other than engage in a last ditch war in a feeble attempt at preserving privilege and power.

    • cowbell81 May 9, 2023 at 12:25 pm #

      Well put by Putin, a great summary of the main issues. I wish him all the best and hope that in the end he and Russia win the big fight for the hearts and minds of humanity. That way the zombies can be purged.

      • BackRowHeckler May 9, 2023 at 1:20 pm #

        A measured speech, well delivered. Yet I still see Putin referred to in British & American media as a madman, a war criminal, a neo-Stalinist.

        Incidentally, when does the spring Counteroffensive begin? The world awaits the great campaign that will dislodge the Russian Navy from their historical base in Crimea & drive the Russian army back to Moscow … and, more importantly … keep the DC to Kiev $$$ spigot wide open.

      There is some amount of false choice in all of this. I am not a cornucopian but the Earth still has plenty of resources though the damage done by industrialized societies and processes is very grave. Unfortunately we appear to be dealing with a species who is unwilling to consider a low growth and sustainable path. Instead you have the Western globalists who wish to murder a majority of the population so that they specifically can horde and exploit the Earth’s resources. Then you have the Eastern powers who simply want a multipolar world but don’t appear to be addressing resource issues and environmental destruction.

      It is super upsetting to see some defame Neanderthals. They would know what to do now but Homo Sapiens probably genocided them too.

      • cowbell81 May 9, 2023 at 1:47 pm #

        Agreed, we all just need to learn the art of better living, and live within our means. There is no reason why we need exponential growth every quarter, with a brand-new computer or cell phone every year.

        Maybe we need to work on getting those asteroids down to earth, or strip-mining other planets for the minerals and resources we can use here. I recall reading somewhere that there is a huge asteroid entirely made of diamond. Wouldn’t that be a good one to have? And they say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend….

        SSL, would you bring home a Neanderthal to meet your parents if the opportunity presented itself?

        • SoftStarLight May 9, 2023 at 2:15 pm #

          Well, sparkly things do generate a positive atmosphere and mood. Personally beryl makes me feel joyous but I definitely love diamonds too. Asteroids would be a better choice maybe just because the sound of strip mining planets sounds kinda terrifying.

    Sorry for a rough post, but apparently a 6 yr-old girl was sexually assaulted at school with the teacher in the classroom in Texas. The school didn’t tell the parents for days.

    Other students filmed it on a school iPad, which the school didn’t tell the parents for a week and a half.

    Disgusting. I would go to jail for what I would want to do to that boy and (especially) his parents. That girl will never truly recover from this. And the kids other thought it was just fuckin’ dandy.

    First graders.

    So in congruence with the theme of death in this blog post, how about the death or moral and ethical integrity of any kind in so many kids in this newest lost generation, riddled with post-“covid” phone-addled do-nothings:

      If we cannot have home schooling, we need to at least do away with the Board of Education at the federal and local levels, and bring back the smaller school rooms that cater only to all students within a 5 miles radius of the school.

      • Woodchuck May 9, 2023 at 3:30 pm #

        Our entire current educational system will dry up and blow away after the dollar is gone. No resources will be available to support the system which takes huge amounts of energy resources, money, and materials to maintain. Once we are in complete system failure, no resources will exist to pay teachers, to transport students back and forth to schools, to provide climate control in the windowless buildings, no way to even keep maintaining the now useless school infrastructure. When people are having great difficulty making arrangements to feed themselves the school systems will fade away in significance. Eventually we may convert the buildings into something like emergency public housing.

        The new school system we will have post collapse will be the very one that worked very well in the 1800’s, and it was simple enough for the average poor person to afford. These new schools will all be within walking distance from childrens’ homes. No fuel will be available for bussing kids to school, and soccer moms won’t be driving anymore in the long emergency. Many kids then will be occupied with performing all sorts of grim chores and vitally necessasry work, just as a lot of farm kids in the 30’s and 40’s didn’t have much play time. They will like school just to get some relief from boring and repetitive chores – like feeding and caring for chickens – or pulling weeds and mowing.

    What is the wisest political strategy to pursue right now.

    Neil Howe in The Fourth Turning seems comfortable with assuming that there is a generational rhythm to American history which to him indicates that we have now(2023) entered a period of maximum chaos.

    Yet Howe seems almost embarrassed/defensive about the role a significant portion of his own academic community is playing in creating and mobilizing this present chaos.

    Kunstler tried to pin him down on this issue but Howe largely sidestepped–maybe because it raises the uncomfortable probability that the formally certified educated classes are not our natural leaders in this period of increasing chaos–and that instead concrete social experience may play an increasingly more important role.

    Are there any historical social movement experiences (like maybe the American Populist revolt of the 1870s-1890s or the emergence of Solidarity in Poland in the early 1980s, that might support the proposition that it isn’t always reigning intellectual traditions that determine human possibility.

    Russia had to cancel the Immortal Regiment part of Victory Day, because the Ukies are known for their terrorist acts against civilians, and Russia didn’t want to give them a propaganda opportunity.

      What a great honor to all those who bravely served Russia, and to those that still do. The video was a great show of strength and unity. I would feel proud to belong to such a Russian military force, or to reside as a citizen in a country being run so effectively under Putin. It must be great to be in a country with such strongly unified nationalist pride.

      The Russian people understand their history and are proud of it. That is what makes them a strong, great country. Here in the USA we are told that our history should be forgotten, rewritten to a more Woke agenda, or done away with. This makes our country weak and ineffective.

      I pray to God that Putin has the strength and fortitude to see all military objectives through to completion, and that this results in a better world, including for the West. It will likely involve a lot of destruction and demolition, but so be it. Once the current world order is dismantled and disbanded it will be a better world for all of us. I hope that Putin can get us there and across the finish line.

        Russian soldiers routinely face harassment from Muslim and Central Asian troops in the military. There are millions of Muslims in the Moscow area alone.

        I hope Putin triumphs too, but the Russian Federation has no future. And its very existence threatens the actual Russian people. White Nationalists have pointed this out and he hates them for it. And they hate him back.

        The ruling philosophy of Duginism or Pan-Asianism is a simply a pastiche of nonsense. These peoples only respect Russia because of its strength. They will betray her in a moment of weakness.

      When does it start?

      • SoftStarLight May 9, 2023 at 8:00 pm #

        Well he didn’t really specify on the time frame but just said starting soon. So it’s still sorta a waiting game but it sounds like it will be good because his show will be unfiltered and not controlled by gatekeepers.

    “Psychopaths and narcissists aren’t ‘mentally ill,’ they’re just horrible people, and they get worse with age, not better.”– Aimee Terese on Twitter

    Do a remake of Hitchcock’s 1960 classic thriller “Psycho”, but with Norman Bates and his “Mother” as virulently “Woke” hacking up people with butcher knives and straight razors because they’re worried about “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion”. Norman’s “Mother” hacks up a Christian woman staying in cabin 1 because she’s “Transphobic”. Norman and his “Mother” are always ranting about how unfair society is to stuffed Dead People,

    Norman refuses to turn on the big sign of the Bates Hotel because he is worried about Climate Change.

    What Do We Need Men For?: A Modest Proposal

    E. Jean Carroll
    3.57
    1,102 ratings210 reviews
    When E. Jean Carroll, author of Ask E. Jean in Elle Magazine, realized that her eight million readers and question-writers all seemed to have one thing in common—problems caused by men—she hit the road. Criss-crossing the country with her blue-haired poodle Lewis Carroll, E. Jean stopped in every town named after a woman between Eden, Vermont and Tallulah, Louisiana to ask women the crucial question: What Do We Need Men For?

    E. Jean gave her rollicking road trip a sly, stylish turn when she deepened the story, creating a list called “The Most Hideous Men of My Life,” and began to reflect on her own sometimes very dark history with the opposite sex. What advice would she have given to her past selves—as Miss Cheerleader USA and Miss Indiana University? Or as the fearless journalist, television host and eventual advice columnist she became? E. Jean intertwines the stories of the outspoken people she meets on her road trip with her own history of bad behavior from mafia bosses, media titans, boyfriends, husbands, a serial killer, and others. Her answer to the question What Do We Need Men For? will shock men and delight women.

    Jarek: This radical feminist hater was allowed to defame President Trump in print, and today was given a large settlement against him in a law suit.

    Now they’re going after Jew-ish hero, George Santos.

      I’ll try to find it but she actually made a post one time joking about having relations with President Trump. Karoline Levitt said that her case was funded by one of Biden’s billionaire donors Reid Hoffman. And Trump will be appealing so. Kevin McCarthy said that George Santos is not chairing any committees but can still vote in committees. He said he would only ask him to resign if he is found guilty so that is still in play.

      • tucsonspur May 9, 2023 at 8:45 pm #

        Trump keeps saying “she’s not my type”.

        Then mistakenly takes E.Jean for his wife!

        Lord have mercy! Guy can’t catch a break!

          I just looked that up. Too funny! He looks aggravated having to even deal with it. It actually is so stupid. This all happened like 30 years ago or more allegedly. It’s such a clear example of lawfare it actually just makes the system look pathetic and petty. But at least it gives the “media” a story to focus on so they can avoid talking about anything that truly matters.

    Norman Bates’ stuffed Mother was always haranguing Norman about how weak he was and how he lacked “Gumption”.

    That’s the problem with kids today. They’re all “Milksops” and “Pussies”.

    Isn’t one of the Big Arguments of the Feminists that if the Women had all of the Power and the men are turned into emasculated, castrated milksops then the world would become a compassionate Utopia in which the government confiscates all of the weapons in order to protect people from random violence, thus, opening the door to tyranny since there is no bulwark against the government’s monopoly on violence?

    But, what if they force all of the men to get dressed up as women and to pretend that their anuses are “Back Pussies” the name of Equality? I would argue that a lot of this transgender “Stuff” is really schizophrenia and even crazier than Norman Bates…. What happens when schizophrenia goes mainstream in the name of “Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity” (DIE”). Do we have a big DIE Off?

    Hitchcock and Kunstler are both Before-Their-Time?

    The author of the book “Psycho”, Robert Bloch, seems to have known a lot about psychology and anthropology and ironically projected himself into his characters? Bloch also seems to reflect upon the phenomenon of “Time” and “Death” which puts him on the path of Mysticism and primitive Shamanism?

      In the shower scene, Norman’s “Mother” pull back the shower curtain to stab Marion Crane, but it turns out that “Marion” is really a Man with a big penis.

      Marion smiles at Norman’s “Mother” and says: “That’s not a knife. This is a knife!”

      And then Marion go at it stabbing each on the bathroom floor.

        Was Norman’s Mother “Mis-Gendered”?

        • SoftStarLight May 10, 2023 at 1:43 am #

          LOL absolutely. Because she was non-binary. So instead of mother she wished to be called birthing zir. Apparently Norman had a difficult time with this and they assumed it was because of Norman’s own internalized hetero-patriarchal transphobia. Obviously he lashed out at the world.

    How much justice or injustice will result from the passage of the Camp Lejeune Justice Act?

    You could make a case if you drank the water there anytime between 1953 and 1987 and later on became ill. Maybe get a million. Drank it for some time.

    Maximum attorney fees are at 25%, I believe. Billions have been set aside.

    Justice, or just the lowdown dirty way of doing American business?

    Mesothelioma to baby powder to Round Up to Camp Lejeune water and who knows what else!

    “‘These vaccines have been made to maim, injure and kill.’ Mike Yeadon.

    • Amman May 10, 2023 at 5:38 am #

      A conspiracy of silence by the media makes statistical comprehension of what is going on very difficult. It doesn’t help that other governments overseas do not provide any clear and legitimate information. Even Iran talks about COVID deaths and rates and healing etc, etc. From the Russian end, the MFA mentioned legitimate side effect issues but nothing in a language that would seriously ring the alarm bells for people. My Conclusion? Direct re-action by the citizenry will not occur anytime soon.

      FFS, the WHO entity declared the Pandemic was over in May.

      • Night Owl May 10, 2023 at 5:47 am #

        Germany hit 47% excess mortality in December last year.

        Based on the point brought up in the second quote in my post, I wonder if that is also far too low.

        Would explain why we had ambulances driving by our house, sirens blaring, on a daily basis (which was unprecedented).

      NO,
      Thanks for that link.

      Very cogent statement by Michael Yeadon.

      (Glad he mentions his wife –I didn’t know he was married.).

      I have often wondered about the basis of the “excess deaths” stats—what years are included. Because obviously the averages will be affected by the jab deaths going forward.

      Will we ever be able to disentangle the actual covid deaths from the jab deaths?

      I think most of us here knew during the pandemic psy-op that all of the stats were being played with—deaths with/from covid, infections, etc.

      So, we will never have a clear baseline of exactly what occurred in those years. Public health stats have been deliberately obfuscated.

    Checking the news this morning for the big spring Counteroffensive in eastern Ukraine. Nothing yet; nevertheless, yesterday Biden announced another $1.5 billion in aid for the Ukraine’s upcoming spring Counteroffensive. It occurs to me, if you were launching a Counteroffensive, the first rule would be don’t announce to the enemy that you’re launching a Counteroffensive. I’m going out on a limb here and speculating that the Russian army is pretty well dug in along the entire 900 mile front. With no air force and just a hodge podge of armor donated by foreign countries available, one wonders how this Counteroffensive could possibly be successful, specially meeting the stated goals of dislodging the Russian navy from Crimea & pushing the Russian army back to Moscow. I’m beginning to think this Spring Counteroffensive is a part of an insidious disinformation campaign designed to keep the copious cash donations flowing in from the West. The MSM is in on it. In this, the Counteroffensive has been an enormous success already.

        The Russian Black Sea fleet has been HQ’d in Sevastopol, Crimea, since 1772. Russia has fought enormous battles over Sevastopol in the 1853, 1942 & 1944 to defend or recapture their Crimean Naval Base.

      Apparently the Ukies pushed the Russians back across a canal on the south flank of Bakhmut.

      There are some very pissed off Russian commenters, including Prizghin. He’s mad that Wagner had to send soldiers out of the city, to defend the flank.

      Where are the 380,000 mobilized troops? They need to be sent to secure the flanks, pronto.

    Russian output might not have fallen. Russian crude shipments are strong, loadings from Russia’s western ports will be their highest since 2019 at over 2.4M bbl/day. Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister announced that Russia would cut production by 500,000 bpd in March.

    What gets said and what gets done is not the same.

    Any more money spent riding Biden is investment in the death industry. Putin is not stopping. Money still moves. More must die. Hunter needs a new laptop.

    But death is ‘The Next Big’ Thing so…………….. 🙂

    • SoftStarLight May 10, 2023 at 2:53 pm #

      Well that + they had to arrest Santos exactly when they did because it happened at the same time the House Republicans were holding a press conference on the Biden crime family’s business dealings with foreign countries. It was likely coordinated by the Regime DOJ and state media to distract.

    What does it say about the American voting public when they voted in Santos, who at the time looked like he was corrupt?

    And it sickens me that Biden and his family are flaunting their corruption right in our faces. Joe will probably pardon every family member. I don’t think there’s any way to reverse that. If that happens it would cause an uproar, then fade away (like Joe).

    This country is disgusting. It’s getting so that I can’t stand keeping up with the news – except I have to know what’s happening.

    My only fear is that we have a further deterioration in relations with China and I can’t get the life-sustaining meds for my wife.

      Right there with you Beaner, right there with you. The only news I get is when I am surfing the web throughout my day. No TV hooked up any longer in my house in order to get away from the evil globalist agenda.

      Biden and his grifting family is nothing more than a 2-bit whore for foreign investors. I honestly am looking forward to the day that he dies – it cannot be far off now. I hope that the newly crowned King of England refuses to attend the Biden funeral on principle.

    • SoftStarLight May 10, 2023 at 2:49 pm #

      That is a truly scary thought Bill. Yeah it is very frustrating and tiring. This is primarily why I am resigned to the collapse and in some ways ready for it. It’s probably past time for people to prepare themselves and those they love as much as possible for the next era. Keeping up with the news to know what is going on is good. But getting into the back and forth is not worth it because a lot of the controversies are just fake illusions that are ultimately just distracting from what is really happening.

    • MaryQueen May 11, 2023 at 8:59 am #

      If I were you, Bill, I would seek the advice of a certified naturopath/homeopath doctor. I go to one. They can get down to the root causes of any illness, and suggest natural supplements (when possible).

      I have gone through this also with my dogs. I have a naturopath vet (also allopathically trained). I weaned them off phenobarbital and then Kepfa for seizures. They take some herbs and a concoction the vet has developed and they hardly ever have seizures any more.

      I have not had any flu for 28 years or so, and other issues have been corrected with supplements or diet change. I highly suggest this because if you can take control and understand why the problems exist, you can make moves to cure or improve them naturally.

      It’s better than worrying about having the band-aids that big pharma provides suddenly cut off – because they won’t care a whit who it harms.

    All righty, back to the important issues of the day:

    httpX://www.zerohedge.com/technology/ex-russian-space-boss-finds-no-proof-americans-landed-moon-1969

    “Russia’s former head of the Roscosmos space agency, Dmitry Rogozin, said he went on a quest about a decade ago to find concrete proof that the Americans landed on the Moon in 1969. After finding little evidence, he questioned whether the Apollo 11 Mission reached the lunar surface.

    “About ten years ago, when I worked in the Government, I sent an official request to Roskosmos to provide me with documentary evidence of the Americans’ stay on the moon, which at that time was still at the disposal of the federal agency,” Rogozin said in a post on Telegram on Sunday.

    He continued, “I was painfully embarrassed by the fact that the Soviet cosmonauts returning from multi-day expeditions could barely stand on their feet and underwent a long recovery after such flights, and the Americans crawled out of their lunar ships like cucumbers from the garden. . . . “

      Well, they played golf on the moon, using their dune buggies as golf carts.
      That’s how they stayed in shape, doncha know.

      Maybe Rogozin should ask the Netherlands for their moon rock for evidence.

      How is it that people spend months on the ISS and return just fine? The longest Apollo mission lasted 12 days. “Hero of the Russian Federation” Valeri Polyakov was in LEO on MIR for 14 months and I assure you he could stand when he landed and lived a long life after that. As far as escaping the Earth’s atmosphere it is estimated that our atmosphere extends to well over 300,000 miles, however tenuous. No man has ever been outside the Earth’s atmosphere.

            Yep that is one of the black white supremacists. The LA Times called Larry Elder the black face of white supremacy. White libs in California were terrified that he challenged Gavin Newsom in a recall election. They really thought the KKK was going to take over the state.

            Then again I don’t have any clout or influence of any kind so I’m not really worried if you are. Plus I figure that they are already surveilling me and im on a ton of their lists.

          I always figured my life was entirely too boring to be of interest to anybody. I don’t even have an overdue library book.

            But what books did you borrow?

            “But I didn’t actually read any of those books I borrowed!!”

            “Yeah, yeah, tell that to the judge . . . ” ((:-)) .

    WOW, sounds like NYC is going to soon become even more of a shithole….

    New York City officials are scrambling to find housing for thousands of “asylum-seekers” expected to arrive at the sanctuary city once Title 42 lifts on Thursday. City officials believe as many as 800 asylum-seekers will begin to arrive daily once the Title 42 public health order lifts, according to the report.

    “We are literally considering everything at this point (in terms of housing options) and yes the city is considering housing asylum-seekers on NYC streets,” the spokesperson told Fox News.

    CBS2 first reported the plans to close city streets, which were revealed in a confidential memo obtained by the outlet.

    “Kamala Harris, who is ostensibly in charge of the border crisis, and Alejandro Mayorkas gaslight the country by insisting the border is closed and secure – but just 60,000 of those 5 million have created a crisis beyond New York City’s ability to handle, as the City considers using more of its iconic landmarks to house migrants, including a potential tent city in Central Park,” he continued.

      Apparently Biden is reinstating Title 42. But we know it is all for show. They will still pour in no matter what.

    • Islander May 10, 2023 at 7:03 pm #

      I really can’t believe this.

      A tent city in Central Park?

      I wonder whether anyone has asked the Central Park Conservancy what they think of this idea.

      • stelmosfire May 10, 2023 at 8:29 pm #

        Actually Freddy Olmsted was a big camper. He would be thrilled to see his urban park landscape designs utilized with open pit sewers and homeless tent cities. Actually I digress. I honestly have not been to NYC since 2012 so I don’t know what it is like these days.

        • BackRowHeckler May 11, 2023 at 4:14 pm #

          Olmsted was a Lib who founded Nation Magazine, but I don’t think he’d be down for what’s going on in American cities today.

    Shhh…quiet! I’m watching the Trumper tantrum on CNN.

    • JohnAZ May 11, 2023 at 10:07 am #

      Uh huh. You just cannot stand anyone telling the biased entitled press that they are full of it. It was a very apparent attempt to get Trump and he did well. The moderator was extremely rude, interrupting constantly with obvious barbed questions, trying to trip him up, trying to push his answers to the town hall questioners in an anti-Trump direction. Biden’s Mob did not enjoy being exposed by the only guy with cojones enough to point out the corruption and fraud that the Deep State uses.

      As usual, he handled it well.

      And by the way, the deniers of election fraud have never proved that it did not happen. The investigations were dismissed by Leftist AND Rightist judges, obviously Deep State trying to dismiss Trump. The cases and affidavits were never investigated at all. If they had been investigated, it would still be going on.

    Alfred Hitchcock and JHK are ahead of their time….

    “Who’s left now?

    The dead! Their needs have not received sufficient attention. Inclusion has not come to them… yet. They are systematically kept out of all current activities and ceremonies. They are segregated in ghettos of grass and granite. The legal system stigmatizes them. Numerically, taking in the whole of human history, they are by far the largest demographic. Yet, they are routinely ignored, overlooked, disrespected. If anyone deserves to be Woked-up from the sleep of oppression, it’s them.”

      Some people suggest that the mental effects of the mRNA vaccines are akin to demonic possession….

      • K-Chien May 11, 2023 at 3:53 am #

        But, demonic possession is a common thing. So how can you really know for sure?

        • Pucker May 11, 2023 at 4:54 am #

          “ But, demonic possession is a common thing. So how can you really know for sure?”

          That is true….

          The Je..,wish author of the book “Psycho”, Robert Bloch, understood that primitive human psychology (human sacrifice, cannibalism, Shamanism, animism, etc.) remains largely unchanged, notwithstanding all of the superficial “Modernity”. Varying degrees of “Schizophrenia” are actually very common.

      Excuse me, but I wish to lodge a protest against the unfair exclusion of a prominent segment of society, in a spirit of diversity and inclusion:

      The UNdead.

      Think of poor Yoko Ono. Joe Biden. Shall I go on?

      The undead have their dreams, their yearnings, their aspirations, just like everyone else.

      (Well, maybe not EXACTLY the same, I must admit.)

      Welcoming the undead on a fair and equal basis, giving them government jobs and high-profile media positions, as well as full professorships at undead institutions of higher learning will make a rich contribution to a woke society.

      Rich. Can’t you smell it?

    People of color will be a majority of the American working class in 2032

    “People of color will become a majority of the American working class in 2032. This estimate, based on long-term labor force projections from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and trends in college completion by race and ethnicity, is 11 years sooner than the Census Bureau projection for the overall U.S. population, which becomes ‘majority-minority’ in 2043…

    Because the working class is increasingly people of color, raising working class living standards will require bridging racial and ethnic divides.” ~ Economic Policy Institute

    “Except immigrants.
    If the border is permeable one way, maybe it’s permeable the other way too.
    So maybe we can see lots of farming setting up and more relatively-local trade and immigrants teaching locals how to do actual stuff beyond sliding their fingers across digital device screens.

    Sure, sudden and pronounced immigrations can be tough, but maybe in the medium-run it will work out better than it might otherwise.” ~ ‘Zazelle
