The USA has gone so batshit crazy in these months of the corona virus freak-out that an orgy of looting, arson, and murder, on top of epic job loss and business failure, propelled the stock markets up-up-and-away back to near-record highs — until it finally puked yesterday in a rare moment of self-revulsion, like a sot who has been drinking after-shave. The news media barely mentioned it, though, so fraught are they by the toils of systemic racism, a morbid condition not unlike “the vapors” of Sigmund Freud’s early days, curiously lacking specificity.

Which raises the question: how much of the response to the public killing of one George Floyd has been an engineered operation by the Democratic Party and its allies in the propaganda industry? I’d say, an awful lot, considering the presentation of events in The New York Times and other organs of the perpetual Resistance that have been luxuriating in existential woe surrounding the indecencies of whiteness, culminating in the fake abject ritual of contrition put on by Ms. Pelosi and Chuck Schumer taking-a-knee in their Kente cloth prayer shawls. Within a few more days, at least four cops around the country were ambushed and shot in the head, but there were no public displays of mourning for them.

Holler when you find that contact lens!

Meanwhile, the country has watched countless scenes captured on smartphone video of young people in flash mobs looting, trashing, and burning one city business district after another — but don’t believe your lying eyes, these were “mostly peaceful protest demonstrations” (Ali Velshi, MSNBC). The police mostly stood by and watched, under instructions to avoid producing a batch of fresh martyrs to feed the flames of rage stoked by the talking heads of cable news. By some miracle, the cops’ restraint prevailed, but many of the trashed and looted businesses will not come back, and the cities themselves will be permanently diminished by the losses suffered.

The Democratic Party Resistance apparently believes that all this mayhem, and the false sanctimony excusing it, works to their advantage in the coming national election. They may be disappointed about how that works out, as they’ve been disappointed in three years of previous gambits to overthrow the government and seize power by any means necessary. The picture of them is resolving into the party of bad faith, foul play, coercion, and tyranny. Even the corona virus scare carries a taint of Resistance manipulation. One moment the populace is hustled into an economically devastating lockdown; and then suddenly, on a fine spring day, they’re incited to mix in moiling mobs of street protests with the predictable result of a fresh spike in virus contagion and the possibility of a second lockdown. Like many activities in our national life lately, it’s another hostage racket, and, guess what, you’re the hostage.

Their most transparent artifice is the utterly false elevation of Joe Biden as their candidate for president. Everybody knows he’s incapable of performing the job, and probably even of functioning through a campaign. His inchoate utterances on events and policy make Donald Trump sound like Ralph Waldo Emerson. He’s left behind himself an evidence trail of financial crimes running to at least nine digits of grift. And, of course, if you believe all women, he’s a sexual molester. Everything about his public presentation is false, including his hair, teeth, and soul.

This past week, his handlers posed him as Grief Counselor-in-Chief (via video from his basement) at the state funeral for George Floyd, accompanied by an inspirational music soundtrack to shore up the sham sentimentality. (Click here for video.) Never have so many hollow platitudes been woven into such a garment of alternative reality for public consumption. Most pathetically of all, the audience of mourners, mere props, as black America has long been employed by the cynical party, went along with the charade that George Floyd was a model citizen and father, now soaring on golden wings to the place on high where you don’t need methedrine and fentanyl to feel happy. A couple of days later, Democratic Party bigwig and Clinton henchperson Terry McAuliffe told a meeting of the faithful that Joe Biden should remain confined to his basement. In a matter of weeks, you may be sure, we’ll learn that the party is compelled to draft Hillary Clinton as poor Joe’s replacement. It can’t be helped. Her turn will not be denied, even if she has to destroy the country to take it.

    James,

    You have ‘hit the nail on the head’ as the old saying goes.

    AND it seems that some of our Afro & Euro-American brothers who have been in the trenches of the Culture War in South Bend, Indiana for the past 20 years agree with you:

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

    Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan – “the smartest man in the US Senate” – while an under-secretary of HEW in the Kennedy-Johnson administrations [1963-1965] predicted the current malaise of so-called ‘negro families’:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Patrick_Moynihan#Kennedy_and_Johnson_Administrations;_controversy_over_the_War_on_Poverty

    https://www.dailysignal.com/2016/03/29/how-liberal-policies-destroyed-black-families/

    I remember sitting on the porch of the beach-house reading:

    Lloyd Shearer, “Negro Problem: Women Rule the Roost” PARADE MAGAZINE, August 20, 1967 – wherein he wrote:

    How can a “Negro Man” be expected to manage his house when he faces a platoon of females – wife – mother-in-law & daughters supported by female social workers determined to remove him from the house and rule it themselves?

    “Unless and until the Negro Family Structure in America becomes a patriarchy instead of the matriarchy it now is, this country is not likely to enjoy social peace.”‘ Chronic unem- ployment meant that “[d]ependent upon women, [Negro men] soon became the object of their scorn, pity, rejection, and tyranny in addition to the contempt of their own children.” Shearer urged that “American business…adopt as a motto, ‘Give a Negro man a job,’ with the accent on the words “Negro Man”.

    https://www.law.upenn.edu/cf/faculty/smayeri/workingpapers/HistoricizingEndofMen93BULRev729.pdf

    In the fall of 1961 several hundred astounded Alabama business owners recieved phone calls from President Kennedy – Vice President Johnson – Robert MacNamara – Bobby Kennedy and other members of the JFK Cabinet urging them to ‘Give a Negro Father a job’. The caller explained that the problem wasn’t racial, but economic and a JOB was the solution!

    Some of these shocked Alabaman business owners accepted the challenge and hired hundreds of Negro Fathers saving many families from poverty and destruction.

    EVERYTHING we witness today is the GOAL of the:

    demonic-marxist-feminist gulag

    RACISM HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH IT!

      • Paul Ford O'Neil June 12, 2020 at 10:35 am #

        Shotho,

        Moynihan went onto serve as US Senator from New York for 24 years [1977 – 2001] announcing his retirement in 1998 and dying peacefully in Washington, DC at age 76 in 2003.

        You are almost right – his expected successor was John F. Kennedy Jr. – ‘but the Clinton’s took care of him in speedy fashion’.

      They didn’t predict it, they engineered it.

      Nothing is coincidence
      Nothing is by accident
      Everything is planned

      The Roman Vatican feudal slave plantation is where we’re all being maneuvered to, because people refuse to actually learn history and understand the scripted staged dialectic used to get us there. They further refuse to see the connection of the publicly visible and invisible personalities used and their connections to the Vatican.

      Communism in all its marketing variants is really just Romanism dressed up for idiots and schooled ignoramuses.

      Until people learn to see and understand the source of this cultural plague, it will continue to score successes against us. We are walking blind into one ambush of feudal machination after another, because most all of our information, from our schools and universities to published books to the MSM is controlled lying Vatican propaganda.

        YES, you are almost on-target.

        There are many nefarious groups inside the “Reserve for satan” which is how an African Arch-Bishop described the Vatican to me in 1999.

        BUT, the “catholic” group MOST responsible for the:

        demonic-marxist-feminist gulag

        that has been brutally imposed on the planet are the JESUITS!

        https://culturewars.com/podcasts/jewish-privilege-jeffrey-epstein-homosexual-jesuits?rq=Jesuits

            Is Genesis History?
            https://youtu.be/UM82qxxskZE

            This documentary and YouTube channel is the bomb! Lots of videos breaking down the lies of Darwinists and modern “scientific” anti-biblical propaganda narratives. There’s another YouTube channel called the ThunderboltsProject that exposes the lies of anti-biblical modern cosmology and confirms the accounts documented in the Hebrew Bible and global accounts of Catastrophism.

            And, of-course, there’s the greatest biblical scholar of them all, and my personal hero, Immanuel Velikovsky. A modern inquisition heretic that first opened my eyes to the deceptions and lies of the modern “scientific” narrative and the propaganda priesthood, sponsored and promoted by the Vatican. A propaganda priesthood responsible for the Satanic deceptions and ignorance in almost every field of science, from history to archeology to medicine to cosmology.

          PFON:

          Thanks for bringing up the Jesuits as a hub of Satanism (nestled within what is ostensibly supposed to be a bastion of Christian theology and faith). If you’ve ever read any of Malachi Martin‘s work, he has a strong understanding of the decline of the Jesuits as an organization (most likely because he was one originally). He correctly credited Pope John Paul II with being the only resistance to the corruption of the jesuits in recent memory. It could be reasonably stated that all other popes since JPII have either been an active contributor to Jesuit corruption or at least “going along to get along”.

          On a more personal note, I have to say that I always look forward to your very informative and compelling posts here on CFN. Please continue to contribute in the future 🙂

          • Paul Ford O'Neil June 12, 2020 at 3:07 pm #

            Daddyotis,

            Thanx for the kudos, I appreciate all comments critical and otherwise to help me sculpt my own perspectives.

            Living in Rome in 2000 – a friend gave me a copy of Malichi Martins Wind-Swept House – with an index of the characters in the novel and their real-life men & women. The one who attraced my attention was:

            “Maldonado” – Signore Alberico Novelli.
            Istituto per le Opere di Religione – IOR
            Latin: Institutum pro Operibus Religionis
            commonly known as the ‘Vatican Bank.’

            So, I looked him up in the ‘Libre Telefono di Roma, called him and invited him to caupucino the next day.

            Sitting on the westside of Saint Peters Square the next afternoon I became aware of a line-backer sized elder Italian man striding purposely towards me from the Bernini Columns near the ‘Bronze Doors’.

            He introduced himself and briskly asked how I knew him. At first I didn’t say and merely replied – Possiamo parlare davanti a un bel capucino. But, he would have none of it and finally realizing he wouldn’t take no – I mentioned Wind Swept House.

            He laughed and asked – Cosa posso dirvi – What can I tell you? So we sat down and talked for an hour or so and he explained that his clerks-work at Vatican Bank paled in comparison to his direct work with the Popes.

            In the Fall of 1978 he and his Sedan Gang thought they would get their jobs back carrying him around Saint Peters Square like the good old days of Pius XII. ‘Forget it’ Pope John Paul II replied – “The only time you guys will carry me is outta here in a box.”

            And I watched with tears 15 Aprils ago, as Alberico at the front-right corner of the casket and his Sedan Gang carried Pope John-Paul’s simple wooden casket solemnly up the stairs of St. Peters and then turn and lift him over their heads for a last salute to the mourning hundreds of thousands.

            Except the JP2 was a strong supporter of Vatican Two in general. That’s the main Satanic program. Any in fighting is small compared to that.

        I have to laugh at your characterization of my faith, Roman Catholicism. Granted, the men in the Church have been involved in many nefarious activities in the past and, at times, acted as the sovereign power in parts of Europe. However, over the last century, it has been taken over by marxists and is collapsing from within. Secular humanism and cultural marxism are the new world religions and we will be much sorrier for it.

            Janos,

            YES Bishop Karol Józef Wojty?a was not just a supporter of Vatican Council II – he was one of the youngest prelates [42 years] in attendance and co-author of several of the Schemna [Council Outlines] prepared for Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani.

            I do not accept the wholesale condemnation of Vatican II – BUT instead I do recognize and condemn the SPIRIT OF VATICAN TWO which has crippled the Holy Roman Catholic Church with every demonic heresey ever preached.

            John Paul II wrote over a dozen Encylcicals to clarify vatican II and correct the errors of the SoVT and I recommend you peruse them now especially in light of our troubled times:

            https://www.papalencyclicals.net/jp02

            An American pilgrim, ‘Joey’ visited Padre Pio in the Summer of 1962 and told him he would travel to Garabandal, Spain to see the visionaries of Our Lady of Mount Carmel IF Padre assured him the apparitions were not false.

            Padre Pio replied “Garabandal? Yes, of course the Virgin is appearing in Garabandal, please tell the visionaries to ask what She thinks of the coming Vatican Council.” Arriving in Garabandal a week or so later, Joey met Mari-Loli and related Padre Pio’s question.

            Mari-Loli dutifully asked Our Lady of Mount Carmel during the next apparition and She replied:

            “The Council, yes it will be a great Council.”

            https://www.garabandal.us/
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4__CcFNieE

            I had the great pleasure to live in Garabandal in the Fall of 1997 where I met many wonderful people including a elder Dutch hermit who told me about The Great Catholic Monarch.

            But, that is another story for another day.

            Paul: Vigano’s latest: a well argued article that rejects the spirit argument and condemns the Council itself:

            https://remnantnewspaper.com/web/index.php/articles/item/4929-vigano-on-revolution-in-the-church-from-vatican-ii-onwards-a-parallel-church-was-built

            I don’t know what to make of Padre Pio’s endorsement. The Church has not endorsed it I believe. But yes, he is certainly someone to take seriously. But the Virgin told Lucia something different: A bad council leading to a bad mass.

            To reconcile these two visions is above my current knowledge so I must withhold judgment. However I recall Christ’s, “By their fruits you shall know them”. And what are the fruits of Vatican Two? The devastated vineyard as Von Hildenbrand said. Or a a little study done a few decades ago, a business type analysis of the American Church titled, “Index of Leading Catholic Indicators”. The conclusion? The same. One of absolute destruction and waste. Endless Churches closing. Orders of Priests and Nuns dying, the remaining, often all elderly. Catholic schools closing. Vocations minimal. Church attendance minimal. Catachesis minimal with many attending without believing, just out of habit or “culture”.

      • Paul Ford O'Neil June 13, 2020 at 1:20 pm #

        Janos,

        I agree with AB Vigano’s analysis of the “auto-destruction” of Holy Mother Church as Pope Paul VI called it in 1969. The ‘parallel-church-was-built’ reflects the prophecies of Saint Anne Katherine Emerich [circa 1830] who spoke of two churches and two POPES! WoW.

        However, visiting Fatima on October 13, 1997 [80 years], meeting Fr. Rene Laurentin and reading a number of books, I never recall “the Virgin told Lucia something different: A bad council leading to a bad mass.”

        BUT, remember, Pope Pius XII commenced the planing & schemnas for a Vatican Council in 1949 and abandoned the project in 1951 due to the nefarious behavior of Jesuits inside the Vatican and especially in the Louvain in Belgium.

        The ‘Jebbies’ apparently feared a ‘Council’ that would re-affirm the “Magesterium of Holy Mother Church” and condemn ‘Modernism’ definitively! So, they pulled-out all the stops to derail the preparations for same.

        Pius XII getting older and more overwhelmed by the “Errors of Russia” spreading throughout the world, reluctantly concluded that a ‘Council’ would be the work of his successor.

        A decade and new Pope later the world had changed – although Pope John XXIII realized that he had let lose the dogs of modernity on the Church when on his death-bed in June, 1963, he told Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani:

        Stop the Council – STOP THE COUNCIL!!!

        Perhaps Our Lady had a better assessment of Vatican Council II because She knew Her special son Karol Wojtyla would set the matter straight 20 years in the future?

    There’s a rush to declare one party or another victors in the November election. Five months is an awfully long time in American politics nowadays. But one thing is for sure, whatever is the apparent outcome on November 4, the aftermath will play out long afterwards and the social fabric will be torn even further. Pity the winner and pity the nation.

    • JohnAZ June 12, 2020 at 10:33 am #

      The choice is tough. Trump, who makes everyone face the truth and tries to tear down the Deep State takeover of the country. Biden, who cannot speak, cannot think, has no ideas what to do, and whose only claim to electoral fame is appointing his successor, a woman of color. Like him, competence is no issue.

      If this was mostly a rational thinking, relatively intelligent society, there would be no question about November.

      It is not, as evidenced by what is happening now. The American dupes, the public, is beyond help. Revolution is coming. The rise of CHAZ is upon us. Minneapolis is next.

      Trump can save this country but it will cost American lives. We will see if, like Lincoln and Ft. Sumter, Trump has the cojones to preserve and protect this union from the clutches of the Democratic, globalist takeover that is impending.

    Notice when the story of former president Obama’s illegal spying on a candidate and then a president was being forced into the consciousness of the mainstream media, the issue of RACISM, and Black Lives Matter come to the foreground, and result in riots?

    This is a show of strength, as in “see what I can do if you don’t back off”.

    Nobody rioted over a woman being shot to death by a Somali cop in the same city George Floyd was killed in. They should call their movement Only Black Men’s Lives Matter.
    Nobody rioted over the black mother suffering from psychosis, who was gunned down by the DC police in front of the White House, when Obama was president.
    Who even remembers?

      This little Limerick has garnered much attention when I’ve posted it on liberal sites on FB or articles mentioning him on yahoo. I know it is effective by the flurry of response. As long as I add symbols and excess spaces, the algorithms don’t catch it and it stays up until an administrator removes it–long enough to get outraged replies weakly attempting to defend the indefensible. Lewd rhyme has served a political purpose for centuries. It is best when short and easily remembered, the more offensive the better, and the Limerick form is perfect for this purpose. Ridicule is almost impossible to defend against.

    And now we’re witnessing the debacle in Seattle, a mob complete with a Warlord occupying 6 blocks of central city, including a police precinct. Apparently the SJW ladies in charge, the police chief and the mayor, lack the resolve or are too weak to retake their city.

    I’m curious, inside the C.H.A.Z. Revolutionary District, who is answering fire, medical and police emergency calls? Is the ‘Warlord’ equipped to handle it?

        Camacho was going to give everyone a million dollars so everybody could partay. The people were not his problem. But Camacho was for a while the smartest man on Earth and he knew could not skip town with his hoes until the Brawndo problem was solved.

        Camacho was doing his job and at the end of the day plants got water and the nation was saved. Then Comancho was able to leave with his hoes. Mission accomplished.

            Camacho was a parody that many cannot appreciate. A total chicken bone picken stereotype but underneath the layers of parody a noble renaissance brother with a soul.

            I heard the actor even thought the parody went too far but this is from a movie where people are executed with giant lawnmowers that turn people to salad. Where plants are watered with Gatorade to make them grow strong.

            So in this insanity a man who does not want to be president anymore but he takes his job seriously until he can find a replacement.

            We have a president who does not take his job seriously and wants another turn

        They don’t really believe it. This is theater in order to get the President to react by sending in troops.

          The specifics of who pushed the button for operation Disable-Lockdown-19 is not the important thing. Of course I care but the bigger picture is that everyone react as if they are being played.

          I know I am delusional in thinking everyone will suddenly say oh-hell-no I’m not going to lose my mind just because some agent provocateurs start pushing my emotional buttons. I know I’m delusional since it was not so long ago in the greater scheme of things that I pulled myself out of the primordial slime. Now expecting others who don’t have near my life experience to keep up with me isn’t realistic.

          Lemons to lemonade and proof is in the pudding, A young man who was interested in construction is hunted like he was a dear in a forest and video documents it. Cities do not explode. An older man who was 6’6″ and who worked as a bouncer is the subject of a legitimate police stop and a clusterfuck of error results ending in some fucked up repugnant shit. Cities explode from coast to coast.

          Perhaps there was synergy between the two events and neither alone would have lit the lets-rock-out fuse. Or perhaps the deep state gets by with a little help from its friends? If I worried about the details I would be crazy and you would ask me for proof and waste my time. So we are not going there.

    One thing I feel is missing is a real reaction, from both sides, to the virus disaster. Not the dying or sickness, that is bad enough, but the damage done to the business sector of the country. The GOP, with its hands off mentality, will not do much of anything, like the early thirties. The Dems are just plain evil, continuing their incessant destruction of Trump’s economy to get Biden into office.

    Our government is worthless. The kids “protesting” know it, hence their creating new “countries”. St. George was only a spark that has ignited a crisis that is going to continue to grow.

    An idea. Retire all folks that are 60 and over. Make them stay at home until the bug is gone. Give them their SS at 67 rates, and Medicare. Let the youngsters get to it restarting the economy. Give the young some real hope for the future, and protect the elderly.

    Another item conveniently distracted from- the deliberate introduction of the coronavirus into long-term care facilities, resulting in the deaths of thousands of helpless older people.
    Not everyone in those facilities was already at death’s door. I know of one man who was only there for rehab.

    While the Wuhan virus is a real disease, much of the actions around it are fraudulent and politically motivated.

    It is my personal opinion that the original reason for the lockdown was a lie.
    Remember we were supposed to “flatten the curve” to “slow the spread”?
    The stated reason was so hospitals would not be overwhelmed.
    I was doubtful that hospitals would be overwhelmed, as I am very familiar with the planning for disasters in New York State, and very aware of our capabilities for setting up field hospitals, etc.
    Then the reason given was not hospital capacity, but lack of ventilators.
    That turned out not to be a real concern either. I don’t believe it ever was.

    The lockdown concept was kicking around for a while, just waiting for an excuse to experiment on the people.
    https://www.aier.org/article/the-2006-origins-of-the-lockdown-idea/

    Know what else was around for a while? The idea of forcing masks on nurses who refused a mandatory flu vaccine.
    Nurses have won court fights over vaccines and masks:
    https://www.statnews.com/2017/01/27/flu-vaccine-health-care-workers/
    https://www.inquisitr.com/2483594/nurses-union-wins-battle-over-vaccinate-or-mask-policy-heres-why/

    There were cases in New York and I think Pennsylvania and New Jersey on these issues.
    I’d post links, but the articles have become very hard to find and I didn’t save them.

    It’s interesting, the states with the most draconian lockdowns appear to correlate with the states that deliberately infected elderly residents, and also had previously experimented with forced mask-wearing and forced vaccines.

    I’m not too sure about Minnesota, I think they may be one of the states that is being evasive on the topic of nursing home deaths.
    Only just now, in searching for the articles on Northeastern states and forced vaccines, I found this:
    https://mnnurses.org/mna-nurses-will-battle-essentia-health-flu-shot-firings/
    Hmm.

    People should have gotten wise when the “slow the spread” changed to “until a vaccine is found”.

    If masks “worked”, Dr. Fauci would not have been going without one all this time. Why would he put his own life at risk, and endanger others?
    The same goes for Doctor Birx. She stood shoulder-to-shoulder with others at multiple press conferences.

    So, we are in the midst of a planned takeover. We worried about a government takeover of health care, but what we have is a health care takeover of government.

      But it helps to ease the pressure of an aging population on Social Security, so the neo-cons and neo-libs are ok with it.

      Last fall all the nurses where I worked had to take titer tests to see if we were still immune from measles, chicken pox and whooping cough. I don’t work with children and it seemed illogical and I said so. I was told I either took the tests as it was a new hospital mandate and anyone who refused would not be allowed to work until they submitted. I’m not making this up — and every fall we have to have a flu shot, like it or not. When the Miracle Corona Virus Vaccine comes out there’s no doubt in my mind it will be made mandatory in all health facilities.

      Drs. Fauci and Brix were tested every day for the virus but the day Trump announced the economy would being opening on June 1st no matter what, Fauci had a huge white mask on his face. Really — does farce get any better than this?!

      At my hospital, I and all of the physicians, nurses, and other employees were required to receive the flu vaccine beginning in 2012. If you did not allow yourself to be vaccinated, you would lose your privileges or be fired if you were an employee. I retired the following year.

      I never made a practice of getting or recommending flu vaccines, as they don’t work. Each year the vaccine is raised on all of the prior years flu strains, and when the new season comes along, the virus has mutated and is not affected by the vaccine.

      Why the policy? Because if grandma, who was in the hospital for a hip replacement, happened to get the flu and die, her family would likely sue the hospital for not having had everyone vaccinated. The point of the policy was not medical; it was a liability issue, period. A specious one, but a clever ambulance chaser might make it stick. Big Pharma was solidly behind spreading the fear that motivated the policy.

      There never has been a vaccine for any Corona virus. That doesn’t mean they won’t come up with something that, guess what, you will have to get EVERY YEAR. No, it won’t work any better than your regular flu shot. But with Big Pharma and Bill Gates&Co behind it, you can bet on there being some new shot you have to get. Not just to work in a hospital, but to get into the grocery store, airports, etc. Watch.

    Does anybody not think this ends in a Yugoslavia, circa 1992, redux? The fine upstanding BLM cadres don’t particularly seem to be the most tolerant types and the abject white flagellants, bowing and scraping before those that any time and place would label as enemies of civilization are repellent to any soul with a shred of decency. The latter seem to be dedicated to redefining the term “useful idiot” with a zeal unseen since Lenin spoke the words. Every group will largely be on their own as the police will likely not have to be “defunded” since who in their right mind would willingly chose to go into a profession where you are loathed, abused and in some cases murdered by coddled monsters whose asses are wiped by the very powers-that-be that you are protecting. I’ve never been much of a Second Amendment person but I sure as hell am now. Those old white guys who wrote the Constitution were more prescient than they ever could have known.

      The local news last night announced our local police force would be subject to a 25% drop in funding and no new hires. The money “saved” would go to some vague slush fund of “community services” benefiting I’m not sure whom. Perhaps we could arm the social workers so if they encountered people less than thrilled to see them they wouldn’t be entirely defenseless.

        It’s about as far from funny as you can get but the comedic part will be what happens when none of this improves the lives of black folks one iota. Very few will dare point out that maybe ceasing the Antietam-like numbers of blacks murdering other blacks would be the best remedy in that regard, not to mention fathers actually parenting their offspring. That’s the heavy lifting part and nobody wants to be told to look in a mirror (white opioid country is under a similar spell).

          Its puzzling because in Hartford police funding is being reduced and the Chief in this all Democrat city stated it will take longer to respond to 911 calls, Community resource officers will be eliminated, School resource officers (in chaotic urban schools) cut out and neighborhood patrols reduced. Hartford is a violent crime pit, so I don’t see what’s being accomp,ished here.

            The COVID-induced reality is that almost every municipality lost a king’s ransom in tax receipts when business went away for 3 months and they are going to have to cut many services faced with this reality. You can’t in actuality defund and repurpose money that doesn’t exist.

            The virtue-signaling must continue apace though…The children had a violent temper tantrum and the “adults” will do anything to quiet the zesty urchins. The problem is that when nothing changes and they have the next temper tantrum, what to do then?

    The flight from the cities as the police are “defunded” is about to begin in earnest. From an article today:

    “Prices for rural and suburban homes are being pushed up as an increasing number of Americans seek to get away from the major cities.

    At first, it was the coronavirus pandemic that was the primary reason why so many people wanted to move. According to Redfin, page views for homes in rural communities and small towns were way, way up in March as the virus began to spread aggressively in the United States…

    A report from Redfin (NASDAQ: RDFN) highlights this trend, showing that by late March, the seven-day average change in page views of homes in rural and small towns was up 115% and 88%, respectively.

    Of course now the worst civil unrest in decades has been added to the equation, and this has caused even more city dwellers to consider a change in residence. In fact, one poll found that approximately 40 percent of all city dwellers “are considering leaving…”

    A world made by hand may not be too far in the future. Many people who’ve been working from home can continue to do so and with their companies needing less office space, it follows that there could be a drop in demand for housing as well if people decamped to smaller towns. Being near an airport doesn’t seem to matter as much either since business travel has fallen off a cliff.

    I think we’re going to see the cities hollowed out by a combination of forces — homelessness on the streets, poor police protection and a drop in quality of life. I don’t know why the so-called black leaders (including the water carriers in kneeling in colorful scarves) won’t think past their next sound bite as to what they’re creating.

        HBO has banned Gone With the Wind from its streaming video. I knew this was coming and I wouldn’t be the least surprised to hear that bookstores are “encouraged” to remove it from their shelves.

        ” On Monday, the filmmaker John Ridley wrote an op-ed in The Los Angeles Times urging HBO Max to remove Gone With the Wind from its streaming library. “It is a film that glorifies the antebellum south,” wrote Ridley, who won an Oscar for the 12 Years a Slave screenplay. “It is a film that, when it is not ignoring the horrors of slavery, pauses only to perpetuate some of the most painful stereotypes of people of color.”

        But no one in power who makes it their business to be in front of a camera will have the guts to call it censorship and a violation of freedom of speech. Nor would they consider condemning the endless gore and violence that’s a staple on TV. Hattie McDaniel was the first black to be nominated and win an Oscar for the film but that will be ignored.

    So George Floyd and the cop who killed him were part of some drug dealing operation, and George Floyd screwed the gangster drug dealers? Never a good idea to steal from your gangster employers. That won’t end well. Whenever I deal with the Chinese gangsters, I always maintain the very highest impeccable ethical standards: No lying, No Stealing; No drugs; and No alcohol; But I try not to be too clean or else they won’t trust you. And the MSM has made George Floyd out as a Civil Rights hero, like Rosa Parks? The Society is insane.

    “If you search around you’ll hear rumblings that the nightclub or whatever it was that both of them worked for was an undercover operation of some kind, which may explain why a cop was moonlighting security there. The undercover operation is also linked to the funny money George Floyd was trying to pass, which in turn resulted in the police call which, low and behold, resulted in Floyd’s private security colleague/cop responding to the police call.

    Floyd also had fentanyl, meth and some other stuff in his system. People who know fentanyl say that you can’t reason with fentanyl addicts; they have to be restrained. Also fentanyl frequently results in death by asphyxiation since they can’t wake up to breathe or move position. Experienced fentanyl addicts know if they pass out in the wrong position with head tilting forward they will die. A drunk will move position to breathe but anyone who passes out from fentanyl is not capable of doing this. All things being equal, which they are not (corrupt coroner already in place to massage cause of death) cop should get off. “

    • Pucker June 12, 2020 at 11:32 am #

      Apparently, George Floyd and Officer Butt Wipe worked in the same bar/ nightclub and that this is part of the public record. We used to have people called “Reporters” and “Investigative Journalists” who would investigate stories. Now, the MSM reports: “White Racist Cop Lynches Random Black Man”.

    More on the falsehoods, it isn’t just the Democrats, it is government, period.
    I’m on the outs with many Trump supporters now, because I say that he did wrong over this scamdemic.
    Many will not hold it against him over the initial shutdown. They excuse him over the initial bad information he received.
    If I was able to determine what was bad and false and what the truth was, so should he have been, fairly early on, but the initial fifteen days i stretching out to infinity and he is doing nothing to walk back any part of it.

    This man says a lot of what I think:

    “Look at what is going on now, where a huge protest in Washington DC, a city under formal lockdown order due to alleged communicable disease, not only is allowing said protest but the Mayor who issued the lockdown orders explicitly approves and sanctions said communal gathering by painting streets. She is a fully-functioning member of said protest, not a bystander.”

    “Here we have a city mayor who has in fact announced that the “mitigations” taken had nothing to do with public health in the first place. They were taken and continue to be taken for purely political and pecuniary — that is, to seek money — purpose.”

    “Mayor Bowser is of course not the only one; countless Governors and Mayors have likewise done so.”

    “Trump, for his part, has also admitted he knows he was wrong. He hasn’t turned around and in response withdrawn the pandemic emergency declarations, nor sought to enforce them. Pick one — either the Mayors and Governors are right in allowing said protests and the lockdowns are worthless, in which case all those emergency declarations should be lifted now or every one of those Mayors and Governors needs to have 18 USC 242 charges laid against them today and be hauled off in chains.”

    “There is no legitimate argument to be had for his actions in this regard over the last two months. Had he dropped all of his “emergency” declarations on April 1st and told Governors who wished to keep theirs “We have 50 state laboratories; you’re free to do as you wish in this regard, of course, but any attempt to impede Interstate Commerce will be met with armed enforcement of the right to interstate commerce and travel as is required of me by the Constitution, and you shall get no help from me in either event, nor will I sign any legislation assisting either you or your residents; the States which make good decisions as proved in the fullness of time will win and those who make poor ones will lose” there would be an argument for such support.”

    “And now, have we forgotten that Trump, as President, is being “forgiven” for intentionally destroying the American economy on a false premise while we continue to trust him not to cause us to get into nuclear war which could easily kill a third of all Americans under the same sort of false premise?

    Those who support this man really are a special brand of stupid.

    And no, that doesn’t mean Biden is a better choice, or Hillary would have been.

    It does, however, mean that we no longer have a government worthy of support.”

      Well said. Trump is part of the “fun house”. Everything is window dressing and optics. He called the Antifa “terrorists” – so what does that mean? What is he going to do? Probably nothing.

    ” By some miracle, the cops’ restraint prevailed….”

    Gentle reader;

    Please take a minute to consider our Host’s comment…”cops restraint prevailed”

    Restraint prevailed because cops do not have the privilege of acting otherwise. They are under orders. They are disciplined. They do what they are told.

    The next time someone opines that our law enforcement is out of control, consider this point.

    I guarantee you…I goddamned guarantee you, that if the cops were given the responsibility of ending the CHAZ issue, were told to “take back the streets,” they would do so with enthusiasm and give up their pay that day to do so. Volunteers from those off-duty would have to be turned away…cops from other agencies would stand in line at the buses for the opportunity.

    Cops HATE what is happening…but they have restraint. Given the opportunity (and, of course, the necessity), the warlord would be put down like a rabid dog…his armed minions similarly handled.

    I think Seattle is showing the country a model of dismantling the dysfunctional civic edifice. Every anarchist and university-trained neo-marxist in the country is biting her nails watching what happens next. If nothing happens in a week (and that’s pretty much guaranteed, if you heard Jay Islee yesterday) watch tens and hundreds CHAZ communes spring all over the country taking over derelict inner city zones declaring themselves free of the U.S. and its racist laws. The response of the cities will be the same as in Seattle, the City Hall chicken-shit will try to negotiate with the gangstas, and the gangstas will take over new territory. Former police officers will join local right-wing self-defense militias and the Dem powers-that-have-been will try to disarm them by calling the National Guard. Expect at least half to join the rebels, and co-ordinate the movement across the land. If Trump is still in the White House, expect the high command to defy him and try to use the Army to defeat the citizen militias. Much of the lower ranks will defect and become militias as well. It’s coming, friends, most assuredly it’s coming, as assuredly as the second lockdown blamed on Covid19.

      Don’t make more of it than it is. The area has a block party every year and puts up the same barricades in pretty much exactly the same places. It costs $5 to cross the barrier when there is a block party going on but once I was at a restaurant when they put up the barriers so I was in for free.

      Note that the crosswalk that police have ‘abandoned’ is painted as a rainbow. It has been painted that way because the previous mayor was gay. He was found to be a rapist predator but his intersections are still intersecting with all the colors of the rainbow and have been for about three years.

      Pardon me, but WTF? $200K per year to whisper sweet nothings in the Mayor’s ear? More likely to schedule staff meetings to discuss the agenda for the next meeting ad infinitum. These people move paper from the inbox to the outbox and get paid royally, sticking it to the public. Public Service? Give me a break — please.

    The election this year is gonna be a fiasco, regardless of who wins. There will be real chaos, and because of the problems with the coronavirus, the attempt to use mail in ballots, and the general clusterfuck, much turmoil will be caused. Perhaps enough to bring down the whole country. Trump and Biden. When either one of these two dudes starts looking good, there isn’t much hope for the country. Down the road, I think we will have a better understanding of how the Romans felt as they watched the dissolution of their society. 12 years ago I watched the large company that I worked at, slowly rupture and die.

    The company made printed circuit boards, and had the second largest plating line in the world, the largest in the US. Former third world manufacturers got as good as we were, and then proceeded to undercut us with much cheaper manufacturing costs. We went down hard. I always thought that when the third world learned to manufacture, our jobs would be on the line, and that turned out to be the case. That helped to create the conditions that have led us to the current nightmare.

    There’s no good way out of this mess, and things are gonna get very real and unpleasant in a short period of time. Just like when I watched my company die, I expect to be a front row spectator to the demise of my country, which I never before thought could happen.

    Trumps fake news wants to start a race war. It was clever of JHK to blame Democrats for the sponsored troubles but the truth is Trump benefits far more from CHAOS than Biden does. Iit is an untrue but clever assertion.

    Black Ops impersonating ANTIFA (who has no identified members and never will have) fueling the flames is the more likely scenario. Far more likely paws down.

    People are believing what they want to. Without facts that is what happens and in America truth got the eight minute knee.

    Response to the public killing of one George Floyd has been an engineered operation by the Republican Party with help from various alphabet agencies. This is a more true, far more true assertion than claiming Democrats did it. That’s nonsense..

    We can be safe in assuming the Greens DID NOT DO IT.

    Perhaps those who choose to engage the brain this week instead of just seeing what they want to see they can apprehend that causing Riots which will wind up yielding more Republican Votes is not a Democratic party move. Not a good one.

    Dems don’t generally stand around state capital steps with sub-machine guns and Glocks. Fact is, there is no ‘generally’ about it. They don’t do that. The red hat crowd does that and a month of their unrestrained stupidity as made for some very angry dogs.

    Riot instigators were and are Republican operatives who will open up the country by force to encourage the pandemic where they can because the economy is in severe respiratory arrest. A little race war fits the bill perfectly for Trump.

    Allowing that disrespect of everyone else opened up floodgates of protest. A nation of Elmer Fudds prancing around with guns bigger than they are last month set the stage for riots this month.

    But snazzy scarfs, I don’t feel the need to identify them more than that with a politically correct ‘Kente’. If I got to keep one I’d knee for it too. Who wouldn’t.

      Pretty much nonsense but thanks for spelling it out. Obviously somebody is funding the Antis and provided pallets of bricks for them. I doubt if its the Republican Party though. More like the Democrats and Soros as the money man.

      Likewise, the Black really did massive looting and burning. They are past masters of this. They don’t need any help from the Antis in this regard, though of course the Antis did their share of it too.

      You are a total traitor and deserve the death penalty, along with the media.

      Ha, ha, I didn’t know the media – who are supporting the riots – were Republicans. Seemed like they hated Trump. What do I know.

    Soooo funny today – we all need a good laugh!

    …The news media barely mentioned it, though, so fraught are they by the toils of systemic racism, a morbid condition not unlike “the vapors” of Sigmund Freud’s early days, curiously lacking specificity.

    His inchoate utterances on events and policy make Donald Trump sound like Ralph Waldo Emerson.

    Never have so many hollow platitudes been woven into such garment of alternative reality for public consumption. Most pathetically of all, the audience of mourners, mere props, as black America has long been employed by the cynical party, went along with the charade that George Floyd was a model citizen and father, now soaring on golden wings to the place on high where you don’t need methedrine and fentanyl to feel happy….

    What can they do to top this? Seriously!

    • BackRowHeckler June 12, 2020 at 3:22 pm #

      Systemic Racism is what you blame when 50 years of Affirmative Action and $10 trillion in welfare payment doesn’t appear to have made black people’s lives any better.

      I thought this blog would be one place I could come to avoid conspiracy theories, but I guess I was wrong about that.

      There are a few of us who hold a candle in the darkness against the swirl of conspiracy theories, but we are small in number,

      I have to agree that the forum rather bristles with a large number of naive believers in all sorts of unworldly stuff – from QAnon Pizzagate through to the Vatican Mafia, New World Order, George Soros | Bill Gates, the anti-Trump “Deep State” cabal, the Democrat traitors, and of course the greatest evil – the mainstream media!

      It’s quite an exciting list of enemies they have, and very entertaining too … of course the great advantage of being a devoted consumer of conspiracy theories is that it excuses you from any real research or rational thinking. Just regurgitate crazy junk from the dark web – much easier. And if it’s good enough for the president, why not ..?

      The easy way out is to jump at all them commie shadows, claim white victimhood, and have a good old-fashioned whinge. It’s what passes for a “conversation” on here I’m afraid, but still good fun.

    Both parties are guilty of using disasters to their political advantage.

    I think it is very telling how the mass media is manipulating the images of everyone…including Biden. Why wasn’t that youtube video of Biden’s bragging about strong arming Ukraine VIRAL? Could it be that most of the internet audience out there are between 5 and 25 and lack the comprehension to understand what he is saying? He should have been wearing a wrestling max and beating his chest…then the kids and immigrants would understand!

    Could mass media, like McDonalds, be aiming at the ADHD/ADD audiences with soundbites and vidclips because it’s convenient and hits the spot like a Happy Meal? “Oh, yes, we are finally getting the justice we craved for so long served up to us!”

    Most of the generation involved in BLM has guaranteed they will never be hired by corporate America or civil service jobs.

    Can you imagine what life in the inner cities would look like right now if they couldn’t get a Happy Meal because of a contagion?

        They’re using them to put down Whites, a preemptive strike. Also the Elite have no use for Western Culture or its national traditions. So they use the BLM and Antis to destroy what they want destroyed. If they take it too far, and threaten the Elite, they’ll be sorry. But of course things like this can get out of hand. Maybe the Elite will be the ones who end up being sorry.

  27. JohnAZ June 12, 2020 at 12:31 pm #

    Just went over daily new cases virus report. All of it.

    Interesting info. The MSM is lying to us at every turn.

    It is acting like a spreading ripple going across the US.

    I separated the various areas of the country. Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, west, pacific coast, Alaska, Hawaii. DC is in the SE, the line is the Mason Dixon.

    Then rated each state as upward, steady state or downward trending since the beginning of May, when things started opening up. Visual smoothing of the data.

    Then added up all the results which were surprising.

    One note, high population areas have large numbers of new cases even declining or steady state. Thinly populated areas, not so much.

    The number of states in each area, NE 10, SE 14, MW 8, W 13,
    PAC 3, Alaska HAwaii 2.

    U uptrend, S steady state, D down trend

    NE U 1/10, S 2/10, D 7/10. Downward trend overall

    SE U 6/14, S 5/14, D 4/14.

    MW U 1/8, S 1/8, D 6/8. Downward trend overall.

    W U 4/13, S 7/13, D 2/13

    PAC. U 3/3. Alaska and Hawaii. Both S.

    Upward trends were marked in AZ, NC, SC, FL, AR. The rest of the upward trends were slightly up and continuous from the start. These five have definitely changed since the beginning.

    Seems to me the spread is time dependent. The surge model may be right and transport of infected folks out from disease centers may account for the spread west.

    The residual, the rate at steady state is very worrisome with high values. The move south is worrisome too to folks that want warm weather to kill the virus.

    My guess is that as the stay at home, social distancing discipline is relaxed, people will return to their old crowded ways, much to their chagrin. An epidemiological expert yesterday states that we will go to 50 to 70% infection rate , herd immunity, eventually and we are currently at 5%. The vaccine will help herd immunity, maybe.

    Another influence could be immigrants as the southern end of California, Arizona, Texas, and Florida are all import states. The LA area is much higher than San Francisco.

    • sophia June 12, 2020 at 3:28 pm #

      • JohnAZ June 12, 2020 at 7:27 pm #

        These are not statistics, just an exercise in trend analysis which the Feds should be doing. This disease is a mystery and needs to be understood better.

        I really wonder why Arizona is leading the pack and would like an answer for that. The south is impacted much more than the north, so much for temperature sensitivity. Today it is 106 here in Phoenix.

      *Yawn…*

      ‘ No, a SoundCloud rapper is not its “warlord.”

      Misinformation abounds from the right wing regarding CHAZ, attempting to portray it as both dangerous and violent as well as silly. One pernicious Twitter post claimed, “A SoundCloud rapper becoming the warlord in an Antifa insurgency-controlled autonomous zone in Seattle is proof we live in a simulation,” referring to Seattle rapper Raz Simone, who, yes, has a SoundClound and is a protester involved in creating CHAZ but has not declared himself a “warlord.” The American Conservative and other outlets and pundits repeated the claim. Simone responded by posting a screenshot of a tweet claiming he was the leader of Seattle antifa on his Instagram story with the caption “yo y’all are stupid.”

      The hysteria traveled all the way up to Donald Trump, who tweeted on June 10 that “Domestic Terrorists have taken over Seattle, run by Radical Left Democrats, of course,” and that “Radical Left” Governor Jay Inslee and Mayor Durkan “are being taunted and played at a level that our great Country has never seen before. Take back your city NOW. If you don’t do it, I will. This is not a game. These ugly Anarchists must be stooped IMMEDIATELY. MOVE FAST!” Durkan responded that Trump should go back into his bunker.

      Local reporters confirm that there are some CHAZ residents walking around with firearms (Washington is an open-carry state) but that they claim they are providing safety for the CHAZ and other protesters accept their presence in the area’

    And one more thing that ought to irritate black people. There really are some black people worth admiring, worth looking up to, worth promoting. But that is all invisible. No, what happens is that we keep having the media blow up cases of petty and stupid black criminals who do something dumb enough to get themselves killed and then suddenly they become worth quite a lot.
    But we are not fooled. We (white and black) know that these guys are scum. Think how disheartening that is to black people, that their truly worthy individuals are passed by without note, but heroes are made of young punks. And don’t think the message is lost on white people. They, too, will wonder if blacks can’t produce anyone of real note. Well, they can but the media controls the narrative and the perception.

    Sometimes lying is worse than murder. They pretend to promote blacks but secretly tear them down inside.

I’m not too angry at the general populace for allowing this to happen (yes, the public could have risen up and stopped it) because they’ve been brainwashed to sit back, watch insipid tv for hours at a time, play video games and hang out with their friends on their smart phones. Apparently, people with average IQs – or higher – don’t have the mental strength or will power to avoid these particular addictions.

        When I see the rabble pulling down beautiful historical monuments I get a lump in my throat. The Columbus statue in New London is being vandalized nightly; it’s a beautiful work of art and for many years was the pride of the Italian community in Ct. But you don’t have to be Italian-American to recognize its majesty.

        Another thing that bothered me was mob scum in Dallas and London throwing bricks at police patrol horses, splitting their heads open. I swear to God if I was present I would drop the m** thef#kkrs where they stood. But the worst was video in Philly of the distinguished ‘Community Member’ holding a little white dog above his head, twisting it up like a pretzel. The pup couldn’t get away and you could tell it was suffering. After that I started hearing the looters were coming out here after us and I was hoping that they would.

          Much of America’s civilisation and wealth was built entirely on the backs of black people over centuries. They have earned their right to secure tenure in America FAR more than the majority of whites – most of those who came over on leaky ships from failed European hell-holes way after the hard work had been done.

          • King of Comedy June 14, 2020 at 8:57 pm #

            How 1619-ish of you. In 1776, slaves comprised about 20% of the population of the 13 colonies (450,000). It is estimated (by people such as historian Richard Hofstadter) that half of the white population were indentured servants (700,000-800,000). Indentured servitude was not quite chattel slavery but it was no picnic either. That is neither here nor there in this context because all that matters is that it was forced, uncompensated labor. So if we set aside that slavery and indentured servitude were largely mindless menial labor and if by much of America’s civilization and wealth, you mean about 22% (slaves/total number of forced laborers), then I guess you’re on to something. But I would say that your argument is the equivalent of declaring that the guy who cut down the tree that was made into Einstein’s desk gets credit for the theory of relativity.

            From the Revolution to the Civil War, your argument gets even weaker. By the time of Fort Sumpter, the North (where slavery was abolished in every state by 1804 – although post-1804, there were slaves in the Northern states numbering in the low hundreds diminishing to a handful in NJ by 1860 ) had 210 factories to the South’s 21. To argue slavery built that disparity in a region where slaves were under 1% of the population is the logical equivalent trying to put a condom on a fire hydrant.

            Lastly the arrival of those whites in their leaky ships happened to coincide with the growth of the US from a minor player on the world stage into an industrial superpower in the 8 decades after the civil war with nary a slave in sight (in real GDP, roughly a twenty-fold increase from 1860-1940).

            So, sorry, that may fly with the man-bun crowd at the NYT but reality is what it is.

    An Honest Conversation About Race

    Once when I was in high school working in the hospital warehouse one Summer many years ago, a rumor somehow got started among my black co-workers that I was a “Pussy Eater”.

    Apparently, it seems that there was an urban legend among the blacks at that time that all white males “Eat Pussy”. And since I was a young white teenage bloke that, therefore, I must be a “Pussy Eater”. The young black males thought that this was hilarious because from their perspective no one in his right might would eat a girl’s pussy. They would ask me: “Do white people really eat pussy?!”

    Whenever a black teenage bloke would ask me this question, his face would contort, and he’d break out in uncontrollable laughter.

Instead of condemning the ruin of America, he just made a series of bland comments in favor of Justice and support for the peaceful protesters. This man has a passion for being on the winning side.

        Seems young and old have lost their bearings in different ways. My father used to be a old school union guy. Voted left, never missed a day of work in 30 years at a warehouse, against corporate greed but hated welfare. Didn’t always agree with him but his philosophy made sense. Now? I think Trump could start executing congressman on live television and my father would come up with some excuse for why it made sense. On the other hand, I’m 40, and everybody I know considerably younger, say in their early 30s, seems more interested in gender and racial hysterics than dealing with real threats to our future. No one I know young or old seems to acknowledge that our way of life will be changing in ways that will not be negotiable. Seems like Gen X is going to be the only ones who deal with the real problems of adapting to climate change, resource depletion and mass migration of refugees from the evermore uninhabitable parts of the world. I guess the latch-key generation will end up being the get-shit-done pragmatist we were unintentionally raised to be. I live in Vermont. Maybe it’s different elsewhere. I sure hope so. It would be nice if some younger folks out there are seeing this for what it is.

    Sars-cov-2 is a real threat. I just found out I can get tested despite being asymptomatic. It’s an antibody test which means I have to get my blood drawn at an approved clinic near me. That clinic wants $118 dollars for one test. Then it says, it can be paid for by the gummit. Nowhere do I see on there website how the gummit gets billed for this. All I see is that if I want to order myself, I have to pay.

    Everyone needs to get tested but they sure are NOT making it easy.

        Once I go out I keep my mask on so I do not touch it. People are touching their masks to take them off and then putting them back on breaking the barrier you are trying to maintain.

        ***

        There’s an additional Physician Service Fee of $10.30 (because doctors sign off on everything).

        The final bill for getting a Sars-cov-2 antibody test in my area is:

        $129.30

          Well, have you been sick? It is questionable if a person whose immune system throws off the virus without any symptoms develops antibodies.

          • Karah June 13, 2020 at 12:35 pm #

            No, I have not been sick…that I am aware of. I occasionally get an allergic reaction to something in the air. If the reaction is intense enough, it may appear I am sick with the cold or flu…but the difference is I never have a fever.

            I could have had a fever overnight while unconscious 7 hours.

            “his novel coronavirus is new to the human population—we have never been exposed to it before—so there are many unknowns about how we respond to it. Across any population, there is a high degree of individual variability in our antibody responses to a pathogen in the amount, type, and quality of antibodies that we make.

            Some people make many high-quality antibodies that are very good at recognizing the relevant antigen and binding to it. If this happens, the virus is rapidly bound by antibodies and eliminated before it can even cause an infection.

            Other people make antibodies, but they’re not as effective at binding the pathogen. In this situation, the antibodies only provide partial protection: they slow the virus down but the virus can still cause some degree of infection. These individuals usually exhibit some symptoms and shed the virus for a longer period of time.

            There are also some people who either produce very little or very poor quality antibodies. In this case, although these people produce antibodies, the immunity is not very effective so they can experience prolonged infection with more severe symptoms. They are also likely to be re-infected at a later point in time.

            This is one of the big unknowns with this new coronavirus: What percentage of the population falls into this category? Do antibodies always form after an infection?
            We generally expect antibodies to form following infection, but there are certain cases where this might not occur. The adaptive immune system, which is what we have been talking about so far, is only one part of our immune response. We also have another type of immune system known as the innate immune system. The innate immune system is our frontline defense, the first system to respond to a new infection. This includes cells such as neutrophils, macrophages, and dendritic cells.” – Jonathan Fogle Microbiologist/Immunolgoist at North Carolina State Univ.

    Projects, like what is called Democracy – is No More than a Looted Finite Fossil Fuels Energy Poured into the chained Physics of the Outgoing Western Civilisation.

    What any project of those does, including the ‘Democracy’ project – is looting for the project excess Energy the ‘project’ is not capable of producing by its own – and will never be capable of producing – by its own – ever.

    The Western Civilisation has made itself bankrupt – with its incomplete Physics – when 1824 Sadi Carnot analysed the steam engine’s efficiency, never dared to quantify what Energy was expanded in constructing the Engine, in the first place?

    Over the decades, this turned the primary goal of the Western Civilisation, we now understand, no more than the destruction of all finite, gold-grade, one-off fossil fuels reserves as quickly as possible, even if burned in the air to waste – in the hands of Economics.

    On the ground, this has ended a relentless effort put into guaranteeing a quicker return for all humans to physical slavery, viciously exercised, like never seen before.

    This sort of extreme and puzzling behaviour of social-Darwinism will be stopped at for a very long time by humans in next Civilisations;

    This sick behaviour never seen even in the rest of the animal kingdom.

    Why on Earth the Western Civilisation has done this unforgivable act, destroying millions of years in the-making, one-off finite fossil fuels – madly, like this?!

    Science has been paralysed and faked in the process, Economics is kept an Open dodgy System…

      Good question Shtik.

      Are not most public works of art funded privately and then donated to the city on which lands they occupy? Someone voted to have that statue there and someone (technically speaking) needs to vote it out.

      However, war has been declared on history and due process of law. Because, like Kunstler suggested oh so long ago, we are fighting over dwindling resources and this scarcity has become more acute with the convergence of the financialization of the US economy and the destruction of US workforce.

      People are not working because they are not allowed to work and they are losing their say in gummit with the loss of their properties to foreclosures, evictions and arrests. They and their votes will not be counted or heard because they are disappeared and fallen through the cracks. That’s why they are mobbing the commons and taking down the statues concerning a civil war that happened over a century ago. Because they are debt slaves of a brutal gummit.

      We need a MOSES! St. Floyd comes along and leads the way out of slavery by shining a big fat light on it. The plagues stop! The diseases are gone and the money starts flowing in the right direction!

      If that were the case then he would be Obama.

      You should actually fix your statement as it is the truculence of the Democrat party causing most of the issue at this point.
      Its Democrat supporters out destroying property and all the trouble areas are Democrat strongholds of poverty and corruption at issue.

      All this nonsense really is nothing but mismanagement for decades.
      How anyone thinks Democrat plantations are worthy of support is beyond me you really need to be a special kind of stupid to not connect all the dots at this point.

    Have you ever seen this kind of coordinated cultural crackdown, propaganda and virtue-signalling, by all major media, corporations and government simultaneously, in the so-called Land of the Free? They probably do this in China, but I didn’t think it was possible in the USA. Is this a spontaneous herd reaction by frightened elites whose greatest fear is being seen as insufficiently virtuous, or a centrally planned and orchestrated program being rolled out to turn the U.S.A. into U.S.S.A? Someone said fascism will come to America wrapped in an American flag, but Stalinism is coming wrapped in social justice rhetoric right now. To anyone who doesn’t see the clear and present danger of all this and still thinks Trump is the great threat to world freedom, all I can say is: open your fucking eyes and see the (rainbow-flagged) boot stamping down on your neck.

        Politicians tend to follow the herd because they have to win elections. This is being pushed by elites in media, corporations, academics and who-knows-what cabals, none of whome need to worry about voters. Imo this is a full spectrum assault assault by non-democratic forces to create a centralized, China-style technocracy.

    ” Are not most public works of art funded privately and then donated to the city on which lands they occupy? Someone voted to have that statue there and someone (technically speaking) needs to vote it out. ”

    As I understand it , two – thirds of Confederate monuments were put up by the United Daughters of the Confederacy.

    ( Btw , the FBI had spies and agents – provocateur embedded in the United Daughters of the Confederacy.

    A group of women who put on pretty dresses , pretty hats , host tea parties , and maintain memorials.

    Little details like that should tell you SOMETHING ABOUT THE NATURE of these police you are supposed to feel oh – so – sorry for. )

    That is , they are some girls memorial to a dead father , brother , husband , lover , or son.

    You want to get to vote on whether or not to piss on that expression of grief and sentiment ?

    And even if you would vote against it , the suggestion / implication STILL is that the vote may yet be that it IS OK to heckle a funeral.

    Confederate monuments certainly are a social justice issue , and the issue is that it is spiteful , petty , frankly plain immoral , to piss on graves.

    For the record , ” I hates the glorious union , ’tis dripping with our blood ”

    and , ” 300,000 Yankees are stiff in Southern dust . We got 300,000 before they conquered us . They died of Southern Fever , of Southern steel and shot . I wish they were 3 million , instead of what we got ”

    ( Like the song says. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fT50xE1TMIo )

    But I wouldn’t tear down one Lincoln statue , and I sure as hell wouldn’t tear down any monuments to Yankee war dead , my utter hatred of them not withstanding.

    Because that would be plain fucking shitty.

    ( And plain fucking stupid too. There is little enough good quality public art as it is. The United States sure as hell is not ancient Rome , with it’s statues and shrines every 200 feet. )

    I’m not psychic , but I’ll make a prediction now ;

    In a hundred years , yes , even if America were 90% Black by then , this desecration of monuments will become yet another embarrassing incident to gloss over.

    Having voted on it will not mitigate , but rather will exacerbate , the obscenity of it.

    If you saw the movie , ” Schindler’s List ” perhaps you remember the scene where they pry up Jewish tombstones and use them to pave a road ?

    The truth is this is the same damn sentiment.

    They say hatred and bigotry are terrible vices , but I , for one , can think of a vice that is a thousand times worse ;

    The vice expressed in pissing on a horse that is already dead.

    First post. Enthusiastic reader of Jim’s work, and this blog, for 15 years.

    The farcical CHAZ insurrection reminds me of humorous fictional accounts of revolutions gone astray. Dostoyevsky’s The Possessed (also translated as The Devils), Louis Malle’s film May Fools, Hawthorne’s novel The Blithedale Romance. Each of these fictions demonstrates the three main impetuses of revolutionaries. From examples above, and in reverse order: sincere (and deluded) idealists who don’t understand human nature, and think everyone who agrees with them ideologically is also going to work out the egalitarian part of the manifesto in simple, happy fashion; youngsters who want a sympathetic group to join, not much caring about the hard-work-and-bloodshed component, and mainly in an attempt to get laid; and the most dangerous, the hardline nihilists who’re so disaffected and self-hating that all they seek is revenge on the Man. Even in this example, Dostoyevsky (“I am not a piano key!”) has fun with their self-contradictions and ineptness.

    Of course, there’s 1917 Russia, and the confluence of events that led up to it was the perfect storm for Lenin, and then Stalin, to (pardon the pun) reboot the nation. Those were hard-working, sincere thugs who had no fear, and were committed to the core.

      ” The farcical CHAZ insurrection reminds me of humorous fictional accounts of revolutions gone astray. ”

      The non- fictional ones typically aren’t any better.

      ” Those were hard-working, sincere thugs who had no fear, and were committed to the core. ”

      Lenin was a nobleman. Stalin was a star pupil , and like Hitler , the absolute darling of his mother. He DID NOT come from a cold , unsupportive , unloving family.

      Trotsky was anything but working class.

      Proceeding down the scale / down the ranks to the Red Guards , like with the Brownshirts , the biographies of many of those people simply don’t bare repeating , unless your interest is prurient.

      The French Revolution ? Robespierre was a nobleman whose character occasionally embarrasses even Jacobin’s. And trying to celebrate the guillotine , is like trying to celebrate Belzec and Treblinka ; You CAN do so , but it yet remains a hard sell and an awkward pill to swallow.

      My recommendation regarding the American Revolution is NOT to read history books. Go back and read surviving contemporary newspapers , yes , even rebel ones , read diaries , journals , and private correspondence of the time.

      The rebel leaders were almost to a man colonial aristocracy , who joined hands with the sort of people who go about beating up grandmothers.

      And beating up grandmothers is precisely what commonly happened. The famous battles never amounted to much really , except for Yorktown , which militarily was primarily a French army and navy affair.

      Martin Luther’s job skill was theologian , in a one – church culture.

      So …… when he quit his job ….. how exactly did he pay his rent and grocery bill ? You might want to look into that.

        My last paragraph was to emphasize the contrast between the three groups I outlined to the nasty reality involved in “successful” revolutions. Of course the latter were the aristocracy. Connections, money, impassioned rhetoric whether the crowd is 12 or 5000, and a burning ideology meeting political weakness, Nicholas II like Humpty Dumpty on his horse.

        The CHAZ-types are the unemployed and vacant who follow in once the path is cleared. They won’t be leading any revolution, but they’ll sure be needed (and available and primed) once it’s in full swing. Think the poverty-stricken former policemen and bar owners from Hamburg in Christopher Browning’s Ordinary Men.

        The U.S. will be filled with dreary CHAZ rehearsals, like spot fires, for quite a while since they don’t have widespread support and because various overlord systems have enough power to suppress them but not enough balls to call in the heavy guns.

      But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?

      This time the stone was broken up into five inch pieces and stuffed into designer black backpacks and given to men dressed in new fresh ninja black. Then the command was given. Go forth sons of Noah and deliver to your lord an economy not in lock-down.

      And the Lord said, when the looting starts the shooting starts. Make it all good.

      @BRH

      I have been to this statue as you know. I have touched it. Even gingery touching the hands painted red to see if the fresh spraypaint was wet.

      Then I looked at the rest of the statue and laughed. People who hate Lenin so much they have to paint his hands red have so much myopia they can’t see the rest of the statue. Lenin is marching with single-minded purpose that is clear from the expression on the face. But the back of his coat merges into a pile of upright guns.

      The idiots who paint the hands red don’t get that the artist already did that job for them by having Lenin march out of a field of WWI style rifles. The artist was brilliant and captured Lenin from all angles.

      The statue comes from the Ukraine and after the breakup of the Soviet Union it wound up being dumped on its side in a field and half buried in mud. Somebody saw it and said to themselves. This is some fucking good art. It needs to be saved. Morons only think this statue is in praise of Lenin and don’t get that it is clever criticism mixed with praise. This statue needs a home. This statue MAKES YOU THINK.

    I might ask who exactly they in his circle were who were willing , and could afford , to underwrite his masquerading as Junker George.

    By the way , masquerading as aristocracy was a felony carrying a penalty of death in the Holy Roman Empire at the time. But THAT was his cover. Another odd aspect of the affair……

    Martin Luther didn’t seem to have any qualms about attacking religious authorities .

    But when someone suggested attacking the authority of the folks who make license plates , his response , in brief , was to call on the princes and their knights to slaughter these people with extreme prejudice.

    I kinda doubt it was just plain folks who subsidized the printing of that particular pamphlet in the thousands.

    And , yeah , I guess those folks he was talking about slaughtering were not of his circle.

    ( and weren’t catholics , but protestants. Oh well. Nothing weird about that ? )

    From the essay:

    Which raises the question: how much of the response to the public killing of one George Floyd has been an engineered operation by the Democratic Party and its allies in the propaganda industry? I’d say, an awful lot, considering the presentation of events in The New York Times and other organs of the perpetual Resistance […]

    I’d say almost none at all … if I were a clear-eyed Democratic Party operative who was trying to operate in the real world of stats and polls and likely voters, I would be totally horrified by the events since George Floyd’s death.

    These people have a hard enough job enticing 51% of the people to vote for their candidate, and in the case of the decidedly unstable Joe Biden, the effort has to be re-doubled.

    So they do not need the uncontrollable and unpredictable mayhem caused by the riots … just like it’s very debatable that the pandemic has been a net positive for the Democrat vote.

    While it’s historically true that incumbent governments (presidents, congress members and state governors) can be punished in time of economic and political turmoil, I’m not at all certain that the current situation is in line with historical precedent.

    Again this is made doubly unstable because Joe Biden is such a weird fish … even as a good old-fashioned lefty I find him very odd, in the extreme.

    I would also strongly question that the The New York Times is somehow a lefty organ pushing for the defeat of Trump … personally I think it’s no such thing.

    It has an unsubtle veneer of big-city cool, and liberal persuasion, but like all big-city newspapers world-wide it is really deeply conservative, and totally committed to the maintenance of things as they are, and the advertising revenue streams that come from that steady-state.

    That is really all they care about … at the deepest level they don’t care whether it’s Donald Trump or Donald Duck. And they pay very smart people a lot to keep it just as they like it.

      You. Have. Got. To. Be. Kidding. !!!!!!!!

      The opinion pages of the NYT, both the unattributed Editorial opinion and the Op-Ed (attributed) columns are so far left-leaning that it isn’t even funny. A few weeks ago I read an Op-Ed piece that was straight out right-wing and I was amazed. I wondered if they had briefly lost their senses. I thought maybe they were trying to show that they could be ‘fair and balanced.’ I forget who authored that column but it was totally a ‘one off’. I had/have never seen the guy before nor since.

      Please read ANY column by Paul Krugman, Maureen Dowd, Charles M. Blow, Frank Bruni, or Gail Collins and show me one kind word for Trump or republicans in general and I’ll eat my hat on national TV.

      Even in the non-opinion sections of the paper – Business, Sports, Technology, Arts, etc. – any opportunity to take a political stance is left-leaning.

      I have been a 7 day per week subscriber and thorough reader of the entire paper for at least 25 years so I know of what I speak.

        The opinion pages of the NYT, both the unattributed Editorial opinion and the Op-Ed (attributed) columns are so far left-leaning that it isn’t even funny.

        This is a complicated argument, and it needs to be nuanced properly to do it justice. And it’s not a cop-out to say that “it all depends on what you mean by ‘left’ and ‘right'”, since it actually does.

        And while my readership doesn’t extend to the print version (except when I’m in the US), I have been an online subscriber for quite a few years. I also read The WaPo, and a mate in NYC sends me interesting stuff from the WSJ.

        JHK has frequently lambasted the NYT for falling from its pedestal as the “newspaper of record” down to the grubby level of yellow tabloid. I disagree with this rendition – obviously – and not because I think it hasn’t gone leftward, but more that it didn’t hold a high position in the first place.

        But my main point is that the NYT is a for-profit business, and if it didn’t have a “flavour”, and didn’t employ certain writers, that meet the needs of the New York middle and upper-middle classes, it would lose its audience and its advertising revenue.

        It wouldn’t survive – let alone grow – if it were pro-Trump … mind you I don’t know how a single person could be pro-Trump, unless there salary or power depended on it. The NYT knows that being critical of Trump is essential to retain readers and dollars.

        But this makes it far from left-wing … in fact genuine news sites of the left (Politico, AlterNet, Kos, etc) excoriate the NYT for it obsequious deference to the “office” that has been defiled by Trump, and for indulging in rampant bothsiderism.

        So from this perspective I think the NYT is quite conservative, in a moderate-liberalish kind of way … but it is ultimately pro-establishment and pro-business, and of course it couldn’t be any other way if it wishes to prosper.

    From the essay:

    A couple of days later, Democratic Party bigwig and Clinton henchperson Terry McAuliffe told a meeting of the faithful that Joe Biden should remain confined to his basement. In a matter of weeks, you may be sure, we’ll learn that the party is compelled to draft Hillary Clinton as poor Joe’s replacement. It can’t be helped. Her turn will not be denied, even if she has to destroy the country to take it.

    I agree entirely that Joe Biden is way beyond being a president through to 20 January 2025 (however I still think a dementia-addled Uncle Joe propped up in a corner is still 500% better than the corrupt incumbent).

    However I can’t see any evidence that there will be a putsch and Hillary will be installed … is there some evidence for this beyond mere speculation that it would be a smart thing to do?

    And what would Biden’s supporters say, and what would the Bernie Bros say, and where would Hillary’s serious grunt support come from?

    It all seems a bit unrealistic to me … throwing out the delegate-winning nominee (via an Opposition Party version of Amendment 25) might be essential, rational, and the last resort – but these might be the very reasons it doesn’t happen, and Americana heads to the polls to pick between Uncle Joe and the Dumpster. What a nightmare non-choice!

    ” In other words, you admit the Blacks and Leftist are wrong to do what they’re doing and that they should be arrested and tried?

    I’m not sure who you were addressing , but I’ll reply anyway.

    ” they should be arrested and tried? ”

    My idea would be to beat the shit out of them and send them home.

    This arrest and trial business , more often than not , serves scarce any purpose except to make lawyers richer.

    Shooting them , I don’t know , might be a bit overboard extreme ?

    But corporal punishment really has gotten a bad rap.

    Getting their ass beat has brought many a man , woman , or child , to their senses , specifically and especially , BEFORE IT NEED GO ANY FURTHER , TO MUCH WORSE OUTCOMES.

    And , if not , at least corporal punishment tends to sort out in the blink of an eye who is a real hero , and who is just a poser.

    Who is serious , and who is hot air.

    I don’t sympathize with Black Lives Matter .

    Why ?

    The title of the essay you linked to is , ” Revolution from the Top “.

    For some reason ( ? ) , not , ” ” Revolution from Blacks. ”

    My guess would be , to give the author some credit , he senses himself that notion is really as preposterous as this notion that the limp – wristed Sodomites have actually carried out a revolution on their own account , on their own feet , with their own hides.

    ( My guess would be that working class fags still get tortured and beaten up in junior high school by well – heeled egalitarians , while progressive teachers look the other way. Right now , right here , in AD 2020.

    That is , homosexuality is legit — IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT. Otherwise ; Fuck you. The headlines , and the laws , aren’t worth the paper they are printed on. )

    I don’t sympathize with Black Lives Matter , because , as the essay says ,

    ” “Black lives matter” only when they can be used against whites. Otherwise, they count for nothing. ”

    And when they can’t be used against whites , or have served their purpose ?

    Well …… that’s the last fucking time you get an invitation to the birthday party held at the swanky country club.

    ” we’re not really talking about race. Instead, elites are pushing propaganda. They punish those who dissent. They are feeding whites shame, guilt, and outright loathing for themselves. It’s a monologue, not a conversation. ”

    True .

    But —

    ” They are feeding whites shame, guilt, and outright loathing for themselves. ”

    While I would say that is true , I would also say the scheme is universal.

    A common as dirt expression of the scheme , displayed right here daily on CFN , and by all demographics , is the curious use of the insanity thing.

    ” Crazy ” is a magic wand used to transform a 50 – year – old into a 5 – year – old.

    The implication is not that the opponents arguments or creeds are wrong , or in error. That would be too light a condemnation. Even the Virgin Mary could be in error about a date , and Albert Einstein can still slip on a banana peal.

    It’s not even too say that the opponent is bad , or flat evil. Bad people , even flat evil people , can be damned attractive , damned impressive.

    No , “crazy ” sets up a fake superiority , and a fake inferiority , and that’s the very idea.

    Now you can look down your nose at the inferior , who should be embarrassed and ashamed because …… err …. well ….. that part is usually pretty fucking vague.

    As well it should be , because genuine mental illness is no more a thing to be embarrassed of or ashamed of than breaking your leg.

    Now , as for the “opponents” of the Antifa on our TV screens ,

    hmm , it’s a bit trickier .

    Maybe re- writing that essay a little would give a clue as to my views on that score ?

    ” America does not discriminate against blacks. ”

    America does not discriminate against some blacks , and some whites.

    ” Blacks are a privileged class in education and in many jobs. ”

    Some Blacks and some Whites are a privileged class in education and in many jobs.

    Some blacks don’t get a fucking thing except grief , and some whites don’t get a fucking thing except grief.

    “Almost every college, profession, and public institution has activist groups that advance the interests of blacks, ”

    ( Now it gets interesting )

    Almost every college, profession, and public institution has activist groups that advance the interests of some blacks and some whites .

    ( And , by the way , in America , just like in East Germany , public education is a kind of law enforcement apparatus. That’s why the state wanted it , after 5,000 years of having scarce anything to do with education. )

    ” while whites are forbidden to organize. ”

    Hmm , and who would enforce that ? And what would you call the folks whose job it is to enforce that ? Is there a name for that sort of job ?

    ” Whites understand that minority status is an advantage. ”

    Whites understand that victim status is an advantage.

    Or , simply ,

    Whites understand that status is an advantage.

    Typically , who really gives a fuck about victims who do not have status ?

    ” Some whites, such as Rachel Dolezal and Elizabeth Warren, faked a racial identity to get it. ”

    Some whites, such as Rachel Dolezal and Elizabeth Warren, faked a victim identity to get it.

    And GET WHAT by the way ?

    Things like Harvard sinecures , and 25 – to – 2,000 dollar an hour rates instead of minimum wage rates maybe ? That sort of thing ?

    ” The anti-white climate is so pervasive that even white advocates don’t really notice it anymore. ”

    Very , very true.

    Like , a few years ago it was revealed that the U.S. government is permanently cataloging ALL the phone calls of EVERY American.

    That doesn’t seem to bother a lot of folks , of any demographic , though.

    Their logic is , ” If you have nothing to hide , then why do you have anything to worry about ? ”

    An ex- Stassi officer at the time shook his head and replied , ( paraphrasing ) ” People who think that are very naive. ”

    ( or maybe they are just totally full of themselves ? )

    ( And I thought it funny that it was a Stassi officer pointing it out. It is rare for their kind to point out such things ……. But , then , he is an EX – Stassi officer. )

    ” Information is power .

    Period.

    Given enough information about a person , innocence or guilt become mute points.

    For example , let us say that YOU are as pure as the driven snow .

    How many people , do you reckon , have you more or less been closely associated with , say , age 5 to age 30 ?

    A dozen ? Two dozen ? Four or five dozen ?

    Are you sure about all those people ? Do you have any fucking clue ?

    Given sufficient knowledge about all your associates , it’s a good bet we can come up with stuff we can use like , for example , guilt by association. ”

    ( Now I am going to UNFAIRLY pick on Nightowl , but that is precisely the point I am making. )

    Why the fuck was Nightowl doing musical gigs in that Pizza gate place ???

    Especially given , by his own admission , he knew something was off about the place and its owner ???

    It’s damn lucky for Nightowl that I don’t control newspapers , TV stations , schools , or employment , and that my intentions aren’t malicious ,

    because a lot could be done with the guilt by association angle , and hell , I barely know the guy .

    Give me a lot more info , and I would bet my last dollar I could really fuck up his life good.

    And I haven’t even bothered to ask whether he has actually done anything , because that isn’t necessary or required.

    I just need the information.

    But , yeah , thousands of people , black and white , think all of this is fine and dandy because the people spying on you are your friends !

    • KesaAnna June 13, 2020 at 5:47 am #

      As long as that essay was , I have to add a line.

      That is , white advocates do not themselves typically understand that that sort of police power and scrutiny of the private would be dangerous no less to themselves if they themselves had it.

      WHOEVER has it , it is fucking bad news.

      Ok , keep the dog catchers and the traffic ticket – writers if it makes you feel better.

      But if you don’t get rid of this NSA / CIA / FBI bullshit , you might as well put an apple on your head and hand the other guy a shotgun.

    If you’re a criminal fugitive with multiple warrants being hunted by the FBI, US Marshall’s Service, or even by local and state police, this ‘cop free’ Automomous Zone in Seattle is the place for you. (And there are thousands of such people at any given time in the US) Think about it, what a sanctuary! No fear of arrest, plenty of free drugs and food, free alcohol expropriated from local package stores, and thousands of young, college age white girls available for the choosing. If you’re a criminal it’s like you died and gone to heaven.

        A week that’s all?

        And who would fight in this Civil War of yours? Authorities in Seattle — the City Council, the Mayor herself — appear to be “down with the struggle” and are in sympathy with the occupying mob and their Warlord leader. The Mayor has compared events in her city with the summer of love in San Francisco c1967. On the other side you can hear hip hop lyrics about icing cops and smacking down hoes. If it came to internecine warfare in Seattle, who has the advantage?

        • Kakadu Man June 13, 2020 at 7:01 am #

          I don’t know who has the advantage – and apart from anything else, Seattle is my least favourite American cities that tourists are supposed to like … it’s downtown is pretty awful.

          But the mayor and the governor, and everyone else should be listening to the Democratic Party brains trust … to make sure everything they say and everything they do doesn’t play into the hands of the Dumpster.

          But I expect it already has … not many people put up with this stuff.

            There never was a warlord and it is a block party. The mayor is listening to the demands of the people. People are going to CHAZ with their pets it is so goddamn dangerous.

            It is amazing to watch the national portrayal. Trump even has Joe Rogan sucking his cock. They had a Navy Seal ‘friend’ of his call in and tell him about ‘the warlord’. Yaking it up about homeless people and some weird law which says you can legally fight in Seattle too. I have never seen any consentual fights in 40 years but yes if two consenting adults agree to fight each other I think they can do it. Who the hell would do that Joe?

          I don’t find it “curious” … more self-evident and obvious. Cities where there is likely to be a large urban under-class are more likely to elect Democrat mayors, and also more likely to have law-enforcement incidents, and then as a consequence, more riots and mayhem.

          Democrat governance doesn’t cause riots, but I’m curious as to why mayors and governors can’t force changes in cop culture … presumably the police unions are powerful in Democrat circles.

I actually find listening to sane leftists beneficial, not because many of them are open minded they are not most are system grifters but at least I know their honest thoughts and feelings.

    IMO Trump is doing a fine job, the sane left will not get a daddy Stalin figure to save them and the Right will learn to shut up and give up the Empire of “kickin butt” and learn to love freedom, since Trump cannot overcome the media hysteria machine. Learning the hard way is the best way.

    The “taking of a knee” draped with an African Kente Shawl

    Exorcism anyone? This theater of politicians, police and even National Guard personnel grovelingly assuming postures of ritualized atonement – most particularly before mobs in full revolt against all institutions of civil society – suggest a surrender of rational engagement of reality, more that of hysterical surrender to notion that life’s misfortunes are,…well, just that, sign of disapproval of mystical forces.

    An objective examination of history shows that Western society (and most particularly the US) has made unequal strides in social, technological and governmental progress benefitting all of humanity, yet we’re witnessing a trashing of everything American (figuratively “Western” and “White”) as an entirely evil enterprise that must be exorcised.

    This is particularly weird since one of the most spectacular achievements of Western Culture has been an abandonment of mystical explanations for outcomes, replaced instead with reasoned analysis of empirical evidence. In other words, secular science instead of all things voodoo.

    So, in that secular sense, why are so many Americans going along with the insensible raging of street mobs comprised of the those who’ve totally rejected the benefits of Western secular education (and are failing for having done so) and those who are otherwise emotionally unhinged with purely fanciful Utopian notions?

    Instead of achieving herd immunity has the Covid-19 “pandemic” produced such disorder within the public’s notion of “normality” as to produce a complete abandonment of analytical (secular) approach to solving life’s problems?

    What otherwise explans how tacitly silent remains so much of the public in face of the open violence rather than demand for law enforcement back? And why are so many muttering rationalizing façade (like a Rosary recitation). Is it “herd” reactive fear of being isolated? Or have we as a nation surrendered our “reasoning faculties” as have the universities?

Looks like the “Far Right” were right all along about where all this was going, eh? The only ones both there and here. And you know it very well.

    They also threatened to destroy Mandela and Gandhi’s statues. Brilliant! Go on the offensive against the swine.

      “London Mayor Mr Khan expressed sympathy for demonstrators protesting the ‘brutal death’ of Mr Floyd, but said he would not be attending protests due to the coronavirus pandemic – and urged those who do go to follow ‘medical and scientific advice’. ”

      “Mr Khan said: ‘That means keep two metres apart from anyone else not from your home, that means where you think you may come into interaction with somebody else wear a non-medical facial covering, that means where you can’t wash your hands regularly and thoroughly carry around a hand sanitiser with you.

      ” ‘Just imagine how you would feel, protesting because you feel strongly about the brutal death of George Floyd, you understand the importance of black lives, they do matter, but you inadvertently caught the virus, went home and gave it to your elderly mother or father who caught the virus and may unfortunately lose their lives.”

    There are a few statues and plaques of Maimondides around. How did he see Blacks?

    In his masterwork, A Guide for the Perplexed, the great man said this:

    Those who are incapable of attaining to supreme religious values include the black colored people and those who resemble them in their climates. Their nature is like the mute animals. Their level among existing things is below that of a man and above that of a monkey.

    Here’s another translation of the same passage. [Note: Cushites = negroes]:

    …Such are the extreme Turks that wander about in the north, the Cushites who live in the south, and those in our country who are like these. I consider these as irrational beings, and not as human beings; they are below mankind, but above monkeys, since they have the form and shape of man, and a mental faculty above that of the monkey.

    JS: Muslim writers felt pretty much the same to my knowledge. As did the classical writers of Greece and Rome. So Jews, Muslims, and the West, ancient and modern. If you think Blacks are great, you are not of our Tradition.

    One Ancient Egyptian glyph or painting had the Egyptians closest to the Flame of Life, then the Semites, the Asians, the Blacks, and only then the Europeans, who were the most primitive back then. I think that’s the order, if memory serves. We weren’t near the front that’s for sure. A different pov. An argument against my own from an ancient race. I try to be fair….

    Someone put a sign around the head of David Hume, his quote, “I strongly suspect that the Blacks are inferior to the Whites.” He’ll be coming down for heresy as well I assume.

    • Janos Skorenzy June 13, 2020 at 1:06 pm #

      In fact, the Blacks may have been right after the Egyptians in order of closest to the Flame. Sorry, it’s been a long time since I saw that and it’s fuzzy. I’ll try to find it again.

      The Egyptians used the Blacks as mercenaries and laborers and many of them ended up staying. Nature took its course and miscegenation began. Some of the Pharaohs tried to keep the Blacks out but much damage had already been done. Finally, late in their Cosmic Day, the Blacks overthrew Egypt and reigned for a hundred years or so before Egyptian patriots threw them out.

    • SoftStarLight June 13, 2020 at 1:34 pm #

      The ancient Egyptian depictions of Lybians indicate that the people in that area of North Africa at the time were definitely white. Apparently, most of today’s North Africans are actually of “Eurasian” descent still.

      • Janos Skorenzy June 13, 2020 at 1:54 pm #

        Found it:

        Ampim has a specific concern about the painting of the “Table of Nations” in the Tomb of Ramses III (KV11). The “Table of Nations” is a standard painting that appears in a number of tombs, and they were usually provided for the guidance of the soul of the deceased.[134][142] Among other things, it described the “four races of men” as follows: (translation by E.A. Wallis Budge)[142] “The first are RETH, the second are AAMU, the third are NEHESU, and the fourth are THEMEHU. The RETH are Egyptians, the AAMU are dwellers in the deserts to the east and north-east of Egypt, the NEHESU are the black races, and the THEMEHU are the fair-skinned Libyans.”

        Yes, the Libyans or Whites (not anymore!) are the farthest from the Flame. The Blacks are ahead of them. Then the “Asiatics” or Semites, and then the Egyptians. Maybe they didn’t know the Libyans that well or because they were enemies? Or just because they were the least developed technologically at that time?

        If anyone want to look, the picture on the tomb is shown. The wiki is Race Controversy about Ancient Egypt. Ampim is a Black scholar who “feels” the Ancient Egyptians were Black and that both Europeans scholars and now Egyptian ones are trying to hide this fact. But this particular painting is found on many tombs. Not so easy to fake. And given the religious nature of Egyptian Culture, the spacing is hardly accidental or just showing who lives the closest to them. It depicting the level of being of the various groups.

      • Janos Skorenzy June 13, 2020 at 2:13 pm #

        The Arab invasion and then the migration of Blacks northwards as laborers and soldiers to serve in the Muslim empires ended all of that. And of course they brought them in as slaves as well.

        In isolated pockets of the Atlas Mountains only. The King of Morocco married a Moroccan Red Head who could have come from County Clare.

        Probably even before all that too. The Berbers may once have been White also. Now they’re all colors – in other words, no longer a real People, just a general culture and language group. Things have been going downhill for Whites for a long time. The conquest of the New World could have saved us, but individual and cultural greed has destroyed all that could have been.

          I believe the ‘Hands off Bobby’ sign was because tourists rub his nose, Blarney-stone fashion (-ish) – for luck or something – and the good burghers would like them to stop. Apparently.

    There won’t need to be a big defund the police effort after all. Many officers are walking off the job as we type. Is it not just a touch of irony that the soft spoken, black, female Seattle police chief Carmen Best is openly saying that her people arent able to respond to rapes and robberies inside CHAZ and they need help gaining control of the situation, and yet rich, white male politicians are lecturing the public that this is really the price that must be paid for the death of George Floyd and systemic racism. Even Trayvon’s mom wants more police. But super rich cultural maoists don’t worry about those things in their gated communities with their armed private security as they pour their millions into defund the police. But ultimately this shifts power from central to local control and the rich cultural maoists who have enriched themselves off of vast suffering for years are protected and coddled by the centalized power of the current system. So yeah, defund the police!

    • Janos Skorenzy June 13, 2020 at 1:11 pm #

      It may all be for the best. They had us on the ropes with their slow genocide. But now they taking away Football, NASCAR, and the Police. The Anglo-Saxon is waking up, face red and with a bad hangover. Whites will form militias and we will win ourselves a Home.

      All they had to do was wait… Maybe we were right after all and not Anglin. Maybe the guys with the guns at the Michigan State Capital caused them to hurry their plans and Stumble.

      • SoftStarLight June 13, 2020 at 1:25 pm #

        I think we were right about the armed locked down protestors. But Anglin was being really careful IMO because he knows well that all things are turned around on whites to harm us. And our people were armed and disciplined and no one got hurt and they didn’t destroy property or disrespect anyone. They are overstepping big here and the backlash is only just now really beginning. Patience is so very difficult. But it is a virtue. I’m glad they are expending their resources and capital now.

      “It appears to be a leaderless group.”

      Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best on the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone”

      Do remember in the real world the Chief Of Police is a public servant. As Carmen says she doesn’t do politicking. Her big concern is 911 response times.

      I am not going to the CHAZ. I respect but do not agree with it. Appropriate behavior in a pandemic requires discipline. Some Americans think in their name of personal hedonist freedoms they have a right to endanger their fellow Americans. No.

      I knew the American ignorant worship of ‘Law and Order” would lead to this. I knew it would lead to this years ago.

      American policing was preempted by power and a Luis Mumford megamachine resulted. Devoid of life-enhancing values which the best of policing serves, the good guys lost.

    Looks like our Lebanese neighbors are sick and tired of seeing their food going to feed the Assad regime. Huge riots against the Jihadistani Hezbollah military with people commandeering food trucks heading to Syria. Lebanon is swimming in uncollected garbage as the government is bankrupt. Lebanon enjoys a credit rating similar to Venezuela. The Lebanese Lira hit a new low against the US dollar and disenfranchised youth are setting Lebanese banks on fire.

    People had enough of the Hezbollah mafia thieving from and destroying the country. Likely we will see another 1970s style repeat of a full scale civil war erupt there.

    • akmofo June 13, 2020 at 3:11 pm #

      When they ethically cleansed the Jews from Lebanon and Syria, the Christians aligned themselves with the Jihadists and were even more vicious towards the Jews in their need to virtue signal to their Jihadi masters. Now after they fed the Jews to the Jihadi alligators, seems like they be next.

      The Iranians are leaving Syria. The Russians will not be long behind. When Assad falls, the Christians will be next on the chopping block. There will be no rebuilding by Christians. There will be no Christians.

      Aligning with the Jihadists in Bet-Lehem, when the Israeli forces left Bet-Lehem as part of the Oslo Accords, the Christians there were left to be with their new PLO Jihadi allies. Not soon after, the PLO Jihadists turned their attention on the Christians. From a majority Christian city just 25 years ago, Bet-Lehem now has more mosques than individual Christians. When you’re morally bankrupt, financial and complete bankruptcy is not far behind.

    Eight year old Pakistani girl kicked in the crotch until she died. She made a mistake and freed some parrots. She had also been previously raped, but I suppose that is just par for the course over there. Expected as part of the child labor deal. Kind of small next to be kicked in the crotch to death.

    Meanwhile the Pakistani Mayor of London plans what statues important to British Culture to take down. Why not all of them since Islam doesn’t believe in depictions of the human form? To the winners go the spoils, right?

    Is there any plan in place to save the Art of Europe from Islamic destruction? Or they just going to make more movies about Nazi Art Lovers?

    The US new cases curve is slowly falling, mostly because the East Coast and Midwest are falling from their peaks.

    Mexico is rapidly increasing, Brazil is a hotspot right now.

    I would sure like to see a graph of illegal immigration since January, as many of the increasing states right now are immigration input points.

    I wonder what the effect of increased immigration settling into the cities is going to have on the new de-policed nirvanas currently being created. The gangs are going to take over these areas and gang warfare is about to take off. The Blacks in Chicago do not appreciate the competition from new residents from the South, as an example.

    I wonder if the profuse usage of drugs by the protesting groups might be a reason for their not wanting police around.

    I also wonder if the cartel hotspots are going to shift to cities with de-policing. I would.

    • K-Dog June 13, 2020 at 3:40 pm #

      Check your facts. Curves are not falling. Americans are experiencing a peak. More not less discipline is now required. You don’t have a mask you don’t work. I have barked. Debate is if the rise is still part of the first or is a new second peak. (It is part of the first, since we had no unified plan the first peak still walks free.)

      The way propaganda works is if you can convince people they have no options they have no choice but to use their mental abilities to rationalize your bullshit and go into denial. The solution to cognitive dissonance. If they know they have options you are fucked.

      Telling a blatant lie when states are actually peaking gives people the idea that the have no choice but to disregard precautions and give you your precious 401K back.

        How many graphs have you looked at Kdog. How many trendlines have you put together?

        You are aping the MSM and Left’s line like you always do.

        If you look at the US new cases, it peaked two months ago and has been dropping ever since. It is still high, but is dropping even with the turn on of the economy. It is not increasing except in about ten states, more states are dropping than rising right now.

        Get you facts straight before you contradict someone.

        And yeah, Washington State is one of the upward trending states as is Arizona. Matter of fact, Arizona is no. 1, a fact I would like explained scientifically instead of conjectured by a bunch of press that do not know what they are talking about.

        Try Coronavirus Washington statistics in google to get the graphs I follow every day. You can put in any state or country to get the graph trends so you know what you are talking about instead of just mouthing what the media says.

        • JohnAZ June 13, 2020 at 8:20 pm #

          Two contradictory facts going on right now.

          Protest states have not increased at all, most trending down.

          The first turn on states are showing slight increasing trends, starting about three or four days ago.

          And you are right, what I have witnessed is a large breakdown of social discipline regarding masks and distancing. Also, the CDC just released info on the problem of social gatherings, calling them on of the super spreader causes. Their ultimate answer is to do virtual get together.

          BTW, Arizona is number one. Small protests, late and slow turn on with immediate response. Why?

          I would like to see if that illegal immigration chart has surged!

Now good guys I hope can kick some ass and take policing away from the prison industrial megamachine which has seized it from the people and give the machine over to the service of the public good where it belongs. The machine must be repurposed.

    Resistance accepts that even in failure the inner freedom of defiance waters a thirsty soul. It is perhaps the only real freedom and true happiness we can know. Fascism is fought because it is the right thing to do. No other reason is needed.

    I was at a dinner party the other night with people I knew. After a socially distanced dinner, the inevitable real menu was passed around. In short, Orange Man Bad. This is the level of discourse from most people, at least in my enclave here in Canada (similar to many other places, obviously). And these aren’t naive students brainwashed in universities. A successful businessman, his psychiatrist wife, and her teacher cousin, all retired. They get their news from CNN (or CBC in Canada), and that’s all they need to know.

    As usual in these situations, I just bit my tongue until the topic changed. (My reasoned arguments, in the past, have always just resulted in deer-in-headlights stares.) I only jumped in once to point out that Trump’s holding up a bible is a non-story. Every U.S. President in the past 70 years has done the same when making an announcement of grave import. Studies in that time have consistently shown that the populace wants their leaders to at least pay lip service to Christian markers. They’re smart enough to know that most of them aren’t serious Christians, excepting the Bushes, Carter, and (maybe?) Reagan. But, again, the blank looks, and the desire to interrupt with “did you hear what Trump said about …?”

    Their worlds are comfortable, and some vulgar man is constantly dropping turds in all their punch bowls. Case closed.

Of the many other innocent business ownders valiantly trying to protect their property who were beaten in flash mobs. Of the dozens of cops who were attacked by gleeful mobs. Of the many more (or same) cops told to stand down by their craven Democratic mayors and governors. Of the 80 some-odd Blacks murdered by other Blacks in one weekend in Chicago during the riots. Of the destruction of lifelong businesses that will never come back. Of the gutted city cores that will create vacuums in which gangs will move in to occupy for the next decade and from which more Blacks will be murdered over stupid turf wars.

            But all you far right are the same … your definition of “free speech” is the right to hurl hate and lies about anyone and anything, or peddle the most ridiculous conspiracy nuttiness, but then to be protected from any criticism or consequences of the lies and hatred you promote.

            It doesn’t always work that way … in a free country you may say pretty-much what you wish, but others will come after you if you break the law, incite hatred, or otherwise breach social norms.

            Not only was the Bible upside down. But Ivanka touched the Bible and handed Trump the Bible. Thus it was besmirched twice.

            The bible was upside down. A true believer knows that a man of god would have been compelled to open the Bible and share the wisdom the Lord would have us know. That did not happen.

            Why did that not happen? Can’t Trump read?

            Or is it because his forked tongue would have burst into flames should he have attempted such sacrilege. No, nt being able to read could not have mattered for there would have been the gift of tongues.

            But the best proof is simply to look at the photo. Those who walk in the light can clearly see: What’is going on. That’s right, What’is going on. the bible it was, upside down!

          Underwood and another officer were shot at about 9:45 p.m. Friday near the intersection of 12th and Jefferson streets. The guards were on duty patrolling the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building, as a protest was occurring blocks away near City Hall.

          Steve Storer, who coached Underwood in high school, first met him when he was a student at Collins Elementary School. Storer remembered Underwood was a soft-spoken and respectful student.

          “Never had a problem with him,” said Storer. “He’s the kind of you want to be around, the kind of kid you remember 10, 20, 30 years later. I could see him getting into the law enforcement field and taking care of people — that’s the way he was.

          David Dorn’s last moments were caught on video. David Dorn was a retired police captain who died during a night of violent protest. He was was trying to protect his friend’s pawn shop, his widow said.

          His death came on a violent night in St. Louis, where four officers were shot, officers were pelted with rocks and fireworks, and 55 businesses were burglarized or damaged, including a convenience store that burned. Police also shot and gravely injured a burglary suspect who they say shot at officers.

          St. Louis Police Chief John Hayden remembered Dorn in a Tuesday news conference as he and other St. Louis leaders discussed the chaos that took place downtown after looting.

          “David Dorn was exercising law enforcement training that he learned here, so in his honor, we are wearing our mourning badge,” Hayden said.

          “… David Dorn was a fine captain. Many of us younger officers looked up to him. So very well-liked and very pleasant. And his wife still works here, so a very sad time for our agency. We will honor him.”

          So go fuck yourself.

        ============

        Jesus H. Christ !! Are you STILL on this upside down Bible kick? Show me a picture.

        Even Maureen Dowd doesn’t claim the Bible was held upside down. Her big thing is telling us that Ivanka handed the Bible to her dad after taking it out of a ‘luxe purse.’ In an earlier column Dowd named the high-end handbag’s brand name and its cost (I think she said $1,648). Women are very touchy about the cost of other women’s handbags. You could count the MEN on one hand who give a shit about the handbag from which Ivanka produced the infamous Bible and all 5 of those men are probably gay.

    What a disgrace. He knew better. And read how the Leftists cackled in triumph, mocking him, saying, We don’t want you to kneel, we want you to stand up and fight with us. In other words, they tell him to get up after they told him to kneel down. Whites can’t do anything right and never will in their book.

    Meanwhile, in Hamden, Ct, just north of New Haven (unfortunately for them) yesterday, one or two carloads of young blacks riding around suburban neighborhoods, robbing at gunpoint elderly white people working in their gardens, carrying in groceries, walking their dogs. Cell phones, wallets, pocketbooks and jewelry was taken, nobody shot. Suspects remain at large.

    The big surprise here is that the gunmen were identified as ‘black males’. That doesn’t happen very often, somebody must have slipped up.

    K-Dog,

    I especially liked the “probably” in “probably racist”. Such a generous out you give me!

    But I’m not accepting it. Of course I’m racist, and so are you if you’re White. Robin DiAngelo tells me so. What, you haven’t heard of her? Her book, “White Fragility”, is an instant best-seller, promoted post-riots by BLM and their media and university minions, with letters sent to elementary schools across the U.S. which have immediately included it into the curriculum even though department heads haven’t even read it! (From an actual exchange as reported with the educational decision-makers from Jack Murphy.) Prime reading for 7 year olds, letting them know that’s it’s not *really* their fault, it’s just a systemic legacy, and we’re, all of us, guilty by default.

    In fact, according to this intellectual heavyweight (who, along with a few others, spearheaded the fiasco at Evergreen, just down the road from you, including the ouster of American hero Bret Weinstein, a progressive, BTW) it’s not enough to recognize your racism, you have to be actively anti-racist to prove your repentance (which is never enough anyway).

    In short, if you admit that you’re racist, it doesn’t change anything (even though you’re “honest”), and if you deny you’re racist, you’re still racist because it’s baked into the system, and the more you protest, the more racist you are. As James Lindsay and others have pointed out, the claim is laughably unfalsifiable.

    • Janos Skorenzy June 13, 2020 at 6:16 pm #

      Well said, Legal Soul.

      • K-Dog June 13, 2020 at 9:54 pm #

        The race science proponents (vous) don’t think all black people are stupid or criminal. They just think blackness gives them a likelihood of being that way.

        And that is you on a good day.

        Just as DiAngelo thinks being white gives one a tendency to be racist.

        DiAngelo hails from Phinny Ridge. I have lived in the South End.

        • Janos Skorenzy June 13, 2020 at 10:14 pm #

          So? I’m right and she is wrong. And racist means loving your own race in my book. Marxists have made it a pejorative. Of course since they created the word, perhaps they had a right to make it mean whatever they want – if they applied that standard consistently. But they have different yardsticks for the different races so I call foul.

          It’s natural to love your own kind first and foremost. Since no one ever thought to question that before, thus there was never a name given to it. So I’m appropriating racism to fit this purpose.

          Now look inside yourself. If a White prefers Whites, that’s racism, right? But if a Black prefers Blacks, that’s pride?

          Now be honest and admit I’ve just taught you something.

            ==========

            Your definition makes perfect sense to me.

            I have a theory that the very first time(s) the words race, racist, and racism appeared in a dictionary the definitions did not carry a pejorative sense. I am going to research this and try to find an answer. Whatever the case may be we must face the fact that language evolves and now we are stuck with the pejorative sense in these words.

        • Soul Forensics June 14, 2020 at 4:40 pm #

          No, not a “tendency”.

          You didn’t read my post very carefully. DiAngelo says you’re racist because you’re White. Got it? There’s no bargaining your way out of that because you hold the “sensitive, correct opinions”. There’s no way out. You must take the knee forever! And what have you to show for all that effort? You’re still racist.

      • K-Dog June 13, 2020 at 9:40 pm #

        DiAngelo is poison. She defines the world the way she wants to see it and then she looks for evidence. She does harm, serious harm. She spews nonsense and has never apparently been in around true evil for had she been she would know evil transcends whiteness.

        Egality is a learned value and foundation for character in the modern world. It came more naturally in the tribe where everyone was more the same then different. It disgusts me she thinks all white people are the same.

        I have seriously listened to her and she erupts fallacy.

        • K-Dog June 13, 2020 at 9:44 pm #

          White people are actually very diverse. Perhaps to some we all look the same. That is a common shortcoming of those afflicted; with racism.

          • Soul Forensics June 14, 2020 at 4:53 pm #

            The reason I mentioned DiAngelo is because, to steal a favourite word of the identitarians, it’s a “systemic” opinion (cloaked as fact). If it was just some crazy broad spewing her reverse racism, all sane people would just laugh at her. But her kind are the norm, not the anomalies, in every department in the humanities, and they’re spreading their evil (and have been since the early 90s, ramped up, now, to 10/10) under cover of progressive, moral advocacy

            But universities used to be about challenging any and all opinions and “histories”, not as a one-side-fits-all political movement. One of the most common evisl in this brave new world is that every oversensitive numbskull who has to run to the medicine cabinet to take a Valium after encountering an opinion that runs counter to their own, ejaculates with the “racist!” tag. The chilling reality is that, for a long time, it’s been effective. Instant ostracisation, doxing, condemnation, and loss of job.

            Yeah, so whenever I hear someone called a racist, I automatically assume they’re not, unless there’s follow-up, iron-clad proof against the charge.

            DiAngelo is just one messenger, though prominent, among an entire coterie of cynical careerists and envious do-nothings.

          • K-Dog June 14, 2020 at 5:30 pm #

            Racism is action and more than simple belief. Real racists have victims which can be identified. Racism has substance. A substance of hurt. So:

            Yeah, so whenever I hear someone called a racist, I automatically assume they’re not, unless there’s follow-up, iron-clad proof against the charge.

            I can’t agree more! I totally will assume they are not and look for evidence they are. Real evidence. If I did not do that it would mean I am a damn …. myself and I am not.

            Thank you for pointing me at DiAngelo.

            Part of the social justice brouhaha I have ignored because I could not believe the level of logical fallacy and maladjustment alleged to the social justice warrior could possibly be real. It had to be exaggerated. DiAngelo shows me I was wrong.

            I’d tell her to start here but it would be a waste of time.

            http://utminers.utep.edu/omwilliamson/engl1311/fallacies.htm

            And she transcends the list anyway.

            Your only responsibility to another person is not to leave them diminished for having known you. That transcends color so sorry to tell DiAngelo’s I can’t help her with her racism and there are people who hold egality as an ethic in this world and some of them are even white. For some the ethic even has an enlightened spiritual basis. Which DiAngelo insults.

            The answers to DiAngelo’s confusion she must find for herself and medication might help. There could be some kind of cognitive therapy which might help too but I don’t know about such things.

We’re the only country thatt took a civil war to get rid of slavery. The only one. We wanted slaves that badly. You would have thought some Southern senator or reprresentative would have gone on record saying do you realize how bad this is going to look 100 years from now. Crickets. We have to pay reparations to these people. $100,000 to every black man, woman or child. They have never been compensated for building this country.

      Slavery was small potatoes in the US

      Of the 12 million Africans brought to the Americas 1520-1830, about 355,000 ended up in what is now the United States, about 3%.

      The real slavers were Arabs working out of Zanzibar 4th century AD till 1890, when the British Navy put an end to it. Total 25 million to 40 million black Africans sold into slavery by other black Africans in 15 centuries.

      I’ve mentioned this before.

          So have you polished any shoes with your tongue yet lackey?

            Indentured servants often died at higher rates. Their employers wanted to get the most out of them before their term ended. Slaves in contrast, were valuable property.

            Capitalism has a very ugly side.

          The 1960’s saw the Blacks were 12%, today it is 13%.

      Not paying anything to anyone for slavery!
      You go ahead no one is stopping you.

      Further when is enough enough Americans have already spent 23 trillion in attempting to rise poor blacks from the muck and just like failing public education the more money slung at it the worse it gets.

      Like most liberals you think money will fix things.
      Some would say that is a form of insanity you got there.

          Notice the word right?
          Right is well right and left is well left.

          No president in our history has faced what Trump is facing now. He may lose because things are so overwhelming right now. If a Democrat as weak as Biden replaces him, watch out, we are finished.

      I don’t think Reparations would work, whether it were $1,000 or a million dollars per person.

      It’s not just the administrative nightmare, and the huge financial cost, it is whether it’s a good policy, and would provide long-term positives for the recipients. I doubt it.

      In Australia, the experience is mixed … Aboriginal Peoples have been receiving mining royalties for about 45 years – some groups have invested it wisely and productively, recognising that group effort works better long-term.

      Others have distributed the money in smallish amounts to everyone, and two generations later they are no better off – and all we have are the highways littered with rusty second-hand cars that have been abandoned.

        If you want to promote dissolution of the US, you want to put someone in charge who is so weak he cannot stand in the way.

        Think about it a sec, an old demented, stuttering man who does not have a clue about what to do next, with a woman of color with little executive experience as a follow on.

        If that is not a pattern for disaster, nothing is.

    Whites Lives Matter, Black Lies Exposed! Good video about cops killing Whites, including Black cops mocking a schizophrenic White as he smothers to death. Produced by two Black guys. Good allies!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1toK3ODe9U

    They’re still making fun of the White guy in the ambulance when the furious White paramedic tell them he’s dead.

    Black cops are a bad idea except in Black neighborhoods. Let them police themselves. They’ll be begging for White cops again, believe me.

    • K-Dog June 13, 2020 at 11:43 pm #

      The irony is the first black police officer I ever was was a Minneapolis Police Officer. Fifty years ago. Back then Minneapolis Police were sort of like Canadian Mounties.

      Excuse me sir, may I please see your license and registration.

      Something horrible happened after I left.

      A common culture died and other values became prominent. Once Minneapolis was the place to go if you were an interracial couple. That was the Minneapolis I grew up in. Hardworking and generosity characterized the common culture.

      I wish some police would cross the blue line and step up to a white board. Diagram from start to finish the many ways the George Floyd fiasco was unprofessional and violates the mission of the Minneapolis Police Department.

        Yes, tens of thousands of Somali Muslims came in. Now they want their cop murderer released. If Whites are guilty of everything, then minorities are innocent of everything. See how the magic works?

        • Soul Forensics June 14, 2020 at 5:03 pm #

          In 1950, Minneapolis was 99% White (63% now).

          Of course the police had more compassion back then. Much of their time was spent teaching kids how to bicycle or patrolling neighbourhoods for the occasional break-in.

    Uh oh

    Black dude shot last night in Atlanta, at a Wendy’s drive thru. Atlanta Chief of Police already resigned over the matter.

    Blacks feel emboldened now and will be challenging police more than ever; police will respond so expect a bloody summer. But police have been weakened, no doubt about it. The goal seems to be to be able to engage in crime and criminal lifestyles with impunity. Or perhaps BLM sees the police as a barrier between themselves and whites they would like to victimize,
